General Questions

AlienEmotion:

As far as jobs and career choices we all know it's always gonna be hard for us out there. Yea there are laws etc. but in reality you're always going to be judged and even turned down for some jobs. Of course they won't tell u the reason. We chose that lifestyle and we have to bear the consequnces of this still extremely primitive society almost in the year 2017. I'd even say in a lot of aspects it's more primitive now than it was in certain times of the past.

In America there's probably a bit easier cause a larger % of pupulation, it's way more racially diverse etc. Where I live literally nobody have dreads and they sometimes look at me as a circus animal (even tho only 3 months in the proccess yet). I have to tie my hair for at least 4 hours at work, but luckily I untie it again when I'm alone (I do this type of work I'm alone for let's say 4 hours and other 4 I'm not). People are bothered cause of my looks, they mock me that I look like Jesus or some silly stuff like this would be a bad thing. I don't care it's just not easy to manuever through it on a daily basis. Of course some other people also love it, but those are pretty rare.

As far as job goes I'd advise u to try and keep your beard a little trimmed and not go all out with it. Also don't do piercings and tattoos/big holes in ears etc. I don't judge anyone based on their appearence but majority of people will. I'd say if u have dreads and u do tie them sometimes and a beard that's not extremely long then u have better options. But if u go all out with beard plus piercings/tattoos then this could eventually become o problem on a job market.

Yea I know this is extremely wrong and sad in my opinion. It's a fact that society wants everyone to act and look like robots, just look at the politicians for example. All looking (and acting) like clones.

i never had any problems getting any job i wanted ..ever though most jobs i loved were volunteer positions

most people i know with tats, peircings huge holes etc get the job they love

hell i know preists covered head to tie in tatooes and peircings (yes facial tattoos covering 75% of his face) i know women that work topless in male dominated fields like roofing

i know people with dreads working in every imaginable position from doctors and lawyers to theoretical physicists astrophysicists etc at cern and nasa (i think 3 site members work at nasa)

if your worried about your looks interfering in your job..you'll get a job, but likely 1 you will hate

if you don't worry about your looks interfering in your job your guaranteed a job you love

i never cut my nails either i let them row till they break ..toe nails i cut if they get crazy or bother me but fingernails i never cur till they break

been that way since i was a kid.. could never function with short nails, couldn't button a shirt, or pick up a coin ir anything without nails.

funny thing is most are relatively short now except left thumb nail that's like 1/2 inch or so

that's typically when they break nit much longer then that

think a pinky got to 3/4 once but that's it

 trim my beard only by it catching fire, now that i don't smoke anything that often that will catch it on fire its about once a year instead of every few months

under my beard itches at times  (like today from change in weather) that's usually the 1st sign if it being time for a wash

well that's the point the left side of mines wayyy longer then the right

whats wrong with looking odd? i had a friend that shaved 1/ his beard  so only had a beard on 1 side of his face, another (back a couple decades) was a kinda wizard, walked around the city with a huge wizards staff with a medicine bag containing herbs, crystals, and a squirrels nuts (not the kind they eat) and wrapped around tye staff was a big green stuffed dragon, he  had a Mohawk in the shape of a question mark

i had a gf who was all inti asymmetry she wore 1 colored contact, 2 diferent shoes  etc etc,

looking odds the only way to not look so..even.. or normal..or boring
