You can snapchat without selfies Streetgeek. I do it.
Wherever my bed is.
What is Kareis? People say it’s dying young or no olam haba. Is it either one? Or a machlokes? Or both?
Yes they definitely do! They probably have a log book to see who can say it the most!
Well you’d hope that most people do have a spark of humanity. But I don’t know that every person really can do teshuva. I mean if someone can’t feel emotion than they can’t have the teshuva feeling.
Once innocent- Really? Have you never heard of psychopaths? Your average serial killer is most probably a psychopath with almost no chance of doing teshuva because he doesn’t feel any emotion other than pleasure when he’s killing his victims. So your mussar schmooze isn’t going to wake something up in him and make him see the light. Plus if he’s a psychopath he’s probably an expert manipulator and would convince you that he’s seen the error of his ways and repented. Then you’d be sorry you didn’t kill him and prevent the death of his next innocent victim.
Rule of thumb, don’t believe anything you read in Heimishe papers.
It’s quite rare for a serial killer to do teshuva
Haleivi- where did you get OCD from? It has nothing to do with anything!
Because you made like 10 in a row
Wow I did not know he was niftar.December 16, 2013 2:14 am at 2:14 am in reply to: Why Mental Retardation Should Be Called By Its Old Name #995175
To retard means to slow but it eventually became a negative term. They switch the word every time people use it as an insult. Happened with dumb, mental…
Why are you embarrassed? Are you moishy?
If you ever tried walking while one of your toes are broken you know why we have toes!
What about a like button?December 15, 2013 3:38 am at 3:38 am in reply to: How to write a personal statement for seminary applications #994536
Like what Torah?
Agreed Torah613!December 15, 2013 1:00 am at 1:00 am in reply to: How to write a personal statement for seminary applications #994534
I agree with you guys! I think it’s crazy how everyone is putting on a show for seminary! But most people just go along with it…and that’s what their bios look like.
Plus you can’t even start applying anymore. Did you not apply anywhere?December 12, 2013 10:10 pm at 10:10 pm in reply to: How to write a personal statement for seminary applications #994530
Well nonikname that’s quite unusual! Most people try to pretend they’re perfect on their bios and interviews.December 11, 2013 11:06 pm at 11:06 pm in reply to: How to write a personal statement for seminary applications #994527
Well that’s the typical one. Oh I forgot some things! I was a counselor in a camp and had a lot of responsibility and was mashpia on my campers. I want to be a teacher and continue to help girls. And you also write about the chessed you do whichc made you into a more caring and patient person.December 11, 2013 2:26 am at 2:26 am in reply to: How to write a personal statement for seminary applications #994524
Cuz everyone writes pretty much along the same lines. They grew up in a house where there parents instilled in them yiras shamayim and a love of Torah. They were song dance head and used leadership skills then. They hope to go to eretz yisroel so they can learn Torah and eventually build a Torah home. Is yours much different than that?
Sorry art of moi it’s not you! And it isn’t anyone else on this thread either!December 10, 2013 9:52 pm at 9:52 pm in reply to: How to write a personal statement for seminary applications #994522
It actually is a great way to stay anonymous because all bios are the same
It’s someone I know pretty well.
I feel like we’re playing 20 questions here. So I’m not going to post anything else about this unless she posts hr opinion on this thread.
Thanks for you opinions!December 10, 2013 3:57 am at 3:57 am in reply to: How to write a personal statement for seminary applications #994517
I think it’s crazy hodulahashem! But we’re not going to change the world. So if the reality is such you can’t fight it, you gotta go along with it. But I happen to think the whole seminary thing is pretty overrated and seminaries take so much advantage of people in the application/acceptance process.
I was wondering the exact same thing! I don’t know why someone would listen to seminary advice from complete strangers who don’t know them! And why don’t their schools have people they can ask for information about the places they want to go?
That’s true saysme! Had I not made this thread I could’ve texted her that I’m in the CR and know who she is.. But I don’t want her to know who I am.. Guess I’ll live it alone for now and hope she doesn’t say anything else too personal.December 10, 2013 12:32 am at 12:32 am in reply to: How to write a personal statement for seminary applications #994514
I think you should leave put what you struggled with in the past. Seminaries like to pretend their taking in girls who are perfect. Unless you apply to a non-Bais Yaakov seminary.
Well it’s none of you guys 🙂 So I’m not really sure what to do! If they don’t posts one this thread by the end of the night I’ll post who it was. She didn’t say anything I didn’t know I just want her to realize that she’s not posting to a bunch of anonymous people cuz I know her..December 10, 2013 12:25 am at 12:25 am in reply to: Giving Tzedkah to a Charity that uses Money for Expenses #992103
I’m pretty sure singers at the HASC concert do it for free. They charge a lot of money for tickets (around 100 a ticket) so I’m pretty sure the tzedaka is a factor when people go, although I don’t know for sure. All concerts have sponsors so they end up making a lot of money.
Ooh I think I watched it!! It was really good!
I also checked Wikipedia derech agav, but I wasn’t exactly clear on the difference between the two. Thanks pixelate!
Art of moi- please don’t beat yourself up about how you felt about your father!! When people talk about fathers trying to have a relationship with their kids but being rejected by their kids they ae NOT talking about abusive fathers! It’s really important for you to realize that your father is abusive. And nothing that happened is your fault, it’s all on him! You can say he must be in pain,etc but not to excuse his actions, rather to maybe someday reaching a point where you can forgive him. Stay strong!
Actually found a place that pays! It’s called poetry foundation if anyone is interested in trying.
I had an issue that was very embarrassing and I was teased about it a lot. I no longer have that issue. But I still have anxiety that it might possibly return. Not that the teasing might return, but what I was teased about might.
I’m with you hanz kegl!
I have a friend who stutters and it really taught me patience!
Definitely affected me! One thing I was teased about (although it was a little harsher than teasing) caused me extreme anxiety because it wasn’t something within my control. And even now when I no longer have that issue I still have anxiety about it possibly returning. But other things I did I changed because of teasing in order to act more socially acceptable. But I wish I could’ve been made aware in a nicer way.
They’re too busy wearing shawls.
Most annoying song ever!
Hey! We missed you! Glad everything is ok!
I laughed Veltz 🙂
It’s four of the same picture. And I’m pretty sure they won’t accept applications after the deadline.
Temporarily? Massage, physical therapy, chiropractor… But that won’t fix the original issue.
Not everybody with autism has difficulty expressing feelings.
That’s true. But I was talking to you personally, the physical pain will be there (although it may leave temporarily) until you get rid of the stress causing it.
So what happened? Do you have proof to back this up?
I think you need to take care of your emotional weight first..
What else would we be??
You have a great attitude, so keep it up! You’re doing great!
An American girl told one of her Israeli friends that she is going to tinok yosheiv.
I’m sorry 🙁
A seminary girl was on a bus going away for shabbos. She reached her stop and asked the driver to open the tachtonim.
