Hello everyone, I was invited by Christian

Thank you kindly

Great to be here!

Hello friends. I have a question for anyone whoโ€™s a CNA or RN, or just anyone with some knowledge on this topic. Iโ€™ve been doing caregiving for elderly and disabled people for a few years, and I want to work towards becoming a CNA so I can further my knowledge/do more for my clients/more pay etc. Thereโ€™s a local service that does CNA exam prep over the course of a few weeks for a few hundred bucks. My question is are services like this really needed with the amount of information that can be found online? This service and instructor are held in high regards, so I donโ€™t think itโ€™s just a scam, but if I can save some money Iโ€™d like to. Any advice or insight would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

I think this may be the case in Florida as well, having to complete a class before the examination

Thatโ€™s how I heard of the class that I mentioned, all the local agencies hold it in high regard.

Weather was not very cooperative

Veterans Memorial Park in Spring Hill, FL

Just wanted to share a simple white sauce recipe, made it with some chicken

Very rich and would go well with pasta, veggies, just about anything really!

@NeoRealist Iโ€™ve rented several since moving out of my folks home a few years back. What questions do you have about it?

First thing Iโ€™d do is figure out your budget. How much of your monthly income can you currently allocate to rent and utilities?

Do a quick look on Craigslist, are local rents properties in your area within a reasonable rental price?

I was living in California a few months ago and it was a nightmare in my area thwre

Some general advice I can give you to look for in potential rentals: Iโ€™ve always been good at conserving water and electricity, so sometimes a place that includes utilities in the price might not be cheaper in the long run

Iโ€™ve never had a problem with that tbh, my credit isnโ€™t amazing but itโ€™s not bad either, and Iโ€™ve never been shut down because of it

At the end of the day, if you can show youโ€™re an individual of upstanding character, can hold a job and pay the rent on time, age probably wonโ€™t be a factor.

But be aware that every landlord has their own biases.

Plenty of rental listings Iโ€™ve seen over the years explicitly state what type of renter theyโ€™re looking for. Like โ€œsingle student, no petsโ€ etc

Start doing what you can now to build your credit. Itโ€™ll only help you down the road

Iโ€™m on day two of Keto because I gained a bunch of weight after getting hurt back in December. Iโ€™m feeling that initial Keto fatigue

But itโ€™s so true how just eating some fatty stuff really makes you feel full quickly

Good luck @celticflame! I would love a music server! @bjรถrn death metal is life

@Deleted User Welcome! I was your interviewer, letโ€™s finish getting you set up.

My first kid is due in October, can I be honorary parent?

Exciting. If Iโ€™m not mistaken thereโ€™s a few more IE buns in the oven as well

Oof, Iโ€™m very conflicted on that one. On one hand I remember getting spanked as a kid and there are few times I remember being that scared and upset as a youngin. I also never want to be that mad at my kid that Iโ€™d hit them.

So I hope having a stern presence and using a booming tone will be sufficient when it comes to that.

Exactly, like that punishment stuck with me. But id want to save it as a last resort

Agreed. My mom and dad had times where they didnโ€™t work together and thatโ€™s something I want to stress with my wife when the time comes

Meatballs are always good. I like mixing the beef with an egg, spices and bread crumbs. Then when I roll them I put some mozzarella in the middle. Goes great with a lot of pasta dishes.

Meatloaf is good for sandwiches

Congratulations brother! Iโ€™m in the exact same boat as you. Iโ€™ve read a few, and the majority of them all do this same dumb thing; โ€œhur dur hormonal wives and dirty diapers! Now you canโ€™t watch football all day.โ€ One book that I found that doesnโ€™t do that and actually gives good advice is โ€œidiots guide: pregnancy for dadsโ€

@martin do you know if itโ€™s a boy or girl?

Can we get a quick rundown

Welcome @Jack - PA! Iโ€™ll DM you and weโ€™ll finish getting you set up.

The user of_ice_and_rock is tipping his fedora pretty hard there... yikes

Hi @MDNick! Iโ€™ll message you shortly and weโ€™ll finish getting you set up!

Iโ€™m sure everyoneโ€™s noticed this at least once, but what are your thoughts on this modern style of parenting where the kid whines and the parents just hand them a smartphone or tablet.

It makes me sad, these kids canโ€™t even speak and theyโ€™re already being conditioned by too much screen time and instant gratification, all because the parents are lazy

Do you think the space force could go hand in hand with these ventures? Basically becoming like our navy defending off world trade routes?

Two words: space pirates

I love thinking about this stuff, but Iโ€™m always reminded that if we donโ€™t win our species will be stuck on earth until our extinction, doomed to squabble in the dirt

FTN discussed this a few weeks back and they think the Chinese space program is just a show to save face on the international stage. Their culture has spent so much time focused inward that were they to become the global superpower all off world ventures would cease to be.

But anyways, any kind of off world financial ventures Iโ€™m all for. What are your thoughts on Elon Musk and SpaceX?

Iโ€™ve been told since I started working in healthcare that feeling upset and saddened over the declining condition or death of those in your care is normal and actually a sign that youโ€™re the type of individual that belongs in this field, and this has been the case for me. Iโ€™ve bonded with the people Iโ€™ve taken care of and felt a great sense of loss when some of them have passed away. Lately however I feel like Iโ€™ve been losing this. Iโ€™ve recently felt tired, distracted, and at times even jaded and cynical. I feel that many things have contributed to this; being witness to neglect, working with non whites who can barely speak English let alone properly take care of people, getting to know good people who canโ€™t afford the care they need, etc. I donโ€™t want to ramble on endlessly but I would like to ask others in the medical and healthcare field if theyโ€™ve ever experienced this as well. Did it pass? If so howโ€™d you get past this? Should I consider seeking another career field based on this? Any advice or opinion is appreciated, thank you. <@&435155893747974155>

Welcome @PTSD Jaji. I was your interviewer, Iโ€™ll DM you and get you all set up.

Welcome @Undercover Academic - IL, Iโ€™ll DM you momentarily to finish getting you set up.

@AidanGillen to be honest dealing with situations like what you just described motivate me to stay in healthcare and be better than that.

Makes total sense

When I was a kid my dad made me play football and I never really wanted to. But if the kid wants to do it and isnโ€™t being forced/ pressured into it they might get really resentful if theyโ€™re not allowed to

I totally get the worry of injury. I broke my arm playing football. But a kid wonโ€™t think about that and just get upset

Maybe flag football if the option is available?

@JC17-OR this is really great advice, thank you for sharing. After I wrote that rant I hit the gym really hard and felt much better.

@Nemets Okay, this is epic.

@Rogue I bought a few pounds of bacon the other day and had to eat it all quickly before going out of town, so I baked all of it and kept it in the fridge. Tasted fine cold

Florida chapter is at a local Trump rally doing some recruiting and networking, would photos of this be appropriate for this channel?

Trump rally, Tampa, Florida

Iโ€™ve been saving dozens of reaction gifs for this moment

Just got a twitter sh*tposter to apply ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

Any tips on bringing up a baby girl in this crazy world?

My wife took a WIC breastfeeding class the other day and they said it was ok to smoke and drink while breastfeeding

Made me really mad

Yeah, her and Grandma thinks itโ€™s because they want to give out as little formula as possible through the program

@missliterallywho I remember seeing some news cast from the 70s or 80s with a tobacco exec talkin about smoking causing low birthweight and saying โ€œwhat mother wouldnโ€™t want a smaller baby?!โ€

My wife and I both think our baby girl is gonna be a big one

Natural is the plan

I saw a woman do a water birth and said it felt great, blew my mind!

I miss that Cali weather. Floridaโ€™s been like mid 90s with hellacious humidity lately!
