You don't live in New York man. That means you are a not a New Yorker. I've lived in New Jersey for 25 years and was born in New Jersey. I'm not a New Yorker.

Maybe speak about who you are, not what you or other family members have. Just a suggestion. Have a nice night.

I used to as a child though. I lived in Floral Park, NY from 1997 to 2003. Here is my school:

PS 115Q ~ The Glen Oaks School | "Going Beyond Expectations"

The assistant principal is my 5th grade teacher's son (Who took over after she retired 10 years ago). I was in school the summer day she retired and handed over the teaching position to him.

Call yourself a New Yorker. See how many people including New Yorkers care.

Take care.

I have seen that with determination to succeed followed by sincere hard work, you can do much more than you think you are capable of. I am carrying over the same sense of hope and determination coming into Aviation.
Passion isn't enough in this industry.

I hope you do well, but if you get agitated over small things like this, the industry will chew you up and spit you out. Just wait until the first time you spend 100+ hours on a project only to be told the regulation has changed and you have to start all over, but need to complete it in the same time frame. Determination and motivation is great, but there's so much you need to succeed, especially soft skills.

I will try my level best not to get intimidated while at work.

This is just a thread to ask people to bring in their views, because there have been a lot of threads with "rate my looks" bashing lately. Its a methodology to find out the true reason why other people get intimidated by such threads and start making incorrect assumptions. Its not due to my personal insecurity. Always curious to find out why things happen the way they do .

But why is there extreme anger towards people asking on the internet how they look. Why is Reassurance regarded as a crime which deserves the electric chair on this forum. How, in any way, does it claim that one has low confidence and is insecure. Finally, Why do people assume the most ridiculous things about a persons personality when they post a "rate my looks" thread.

Be honest with all of your responses. I want to know.
Because they are fundamentally both shallow and insecure, an incredibly unattractive combination.
