2023.05.30 06:34 HatNo6758 How important is fit in supervision?

I recently transitioned to a non-clinical full-time social work role but will be completing my hours for clinical licensure on the side. I have a lot of my hours done already, if that matters.
I’ve been offered the opportunity through an acquaintance to work under their supervision and would get paid approximately double the going rate for associate-level licensees in my area. For a lot of reasons it would be very convenient to have this person as my supervisor.
What gives me pause is that she has a very different orientation and approach to clients and counseling than I do. I practice through a humanistic, social-justice, feminist lens and her approach seems to be almost exactly the opposite of that. She also has very little experience or interest in my areas of interest. If I’m completely honest, if I proceeded it would be with the understanding that I’m probably going to disagree with the majority of what she tells me. I also know enough about her to know that supervision would likely involve a lot of direct advice giving, whereas the supervision I’ve had so far has mostly involved my supervisor helping me with my own thought processes to come to my own conclusions. I would definitely want to seek outside supervision or consultation with someone more aligned with my approach and experienced in my areas of interest. But, I could do that as my budget and schedule allowed. I’m also really into trainings and reading, so I do feel like I would have plenty of opportunities for learning.
Would it be a bad choice to move forward when I already know this? Would it be dishonest on my part to agree to be a supervisee of someone whose advice I would be unlikely to value? I’m also wondering if being associated with them could somehow damage the reputation I want to build for myself. Not that there’s anything glaringly wrong or unethical with the way they practice, it’s just different from what I’m aspiring to. They aren’t someone I would be likely to refer people to, I’ll say that.
I’m leaning towards not proceeding, but I wonder if I’m overthinking. A lot of people don’t really get to pick their supervisors, right ? Thoughts?

2023.05.30 06:34 MonstersOnTheHill I am late 30s, live outside NYC, and have a HHI of $400k+. I work full time, have two kids, and am a grad student

Section One: Assets and Debt
Retirement Balance: $460K (mine) and $250K (husband’s). We both max out our annual withholdings. I’ve been working longer than him, and my employer offers a more generous match, which contributed significantly to my balance.
Equity: $275K. Our home is currently worth about $450K. We live in a M-HCOL area (far) outside of NYC, and our home was a fixer upper when we bought it. Honestly, it’s still a fixer, and we are saving towards a major renovation.
Cars: Maybe $15-$20k total…we drive two paid off cars. One is 13 years old, and the other is 10 years old.
Other Cash and Investments: $150K
Credit card debt: None, paid every month
Student loan debt (for what degree): $80K towards the grad degree I’m pursuing now. Since we’re saving towards the home reno, I’m financing my degree rather than paying for it outright. I know this is counterintuitive given the interest rate environment. However, home reno is a critical priority for us.
Daughters’ 529s: $75K
Section Two: Income
Income Progression: I've been working in my field for 13 years and my starting salary was $40,000.
I work as a Director of Financial Planning & Analysis in a niche field. I won’t go into too many details because it’s a small world. My salary progression was as follows:
Year 1: $40,000 starting, right after recession. I had an amazing boss who mentored me and recognized my potential. After six months, I received a promotion and raise to $60,000.
Year 3: Promotion and raise to $90,000, for a role with more financial and analytical responsibility. Although I worked hard, I continued to benefit from having a boss who advocated for me. I consider this a major turning point.
Year 8: Raise to $120,000 for additional responsibilities after a coworker retired.
Year 10: Raise to $135,000
I’ve received an average of 2.5% COLA increases and now earn $145K. My boss has requested a $10,000 bonus for me this year, which I haven’t yet included because it’s still under review.
My husband earns $260,000 base salary as a VP of a large corporation (this is a very recent raise…he was at $200K previously). In addition, he can receive a performance-based bonus of 20-30%. We don’t include his bonuses in our financial planning because they are not guaranteed and because a portion is RSUs. When he receives a cash bonus, we put it towards our daughter’s college accounts and/or our home reno fund.
Education: I have a bachelors and a masters in a field unrelated to my career. My tuition was paid by scholarships/assistantships. In addition, my parents covered my living expenses during undergrad. During my first graduate degree, I worked 3 part-time jobs to cover my non-tuition expenses. I’m now enrolled in a grad program more directly related to my career. My employer encouraged me to do this program and generously allows me the time out of office. In addition, if I stay for a certain number of years, they will reimburse a portion of my tuition.
Main Job Monthly Take Home:
Monthly take home: $6,300 after taxes, retirement ($1,875) and medical/dental benefits ($110– self only)
Husband’s monthly take home: $12,560 after taxes, retirement ($1,875), and medical/dental ($400 for him and our two kids)
Section Three: Expenses
Mortgage: $2,485 for principal, interest, insurance, and taxes. We refinanced to a 15-year loan at 2.3% when rates were low
Daycare: $3,510 per month (full-time for a toddler and preschooler)
Savings contribution: $3,000-$5,000
Daughters’ 529 accounts: $2,000 ($1,000 each)
Debt payments: $700 towards my student loans. This will increase once I’m done with my degree
Donations: $3,000 annually
Transit $350-400 for husband’s commute (3x/week to NYC)
Electric: $60
Wifi/Cable/Landline: $120
Cellphone: $180
Subscriptions: $59 for Netflix, Hulu, Disney+, Duolingo, Apple Storage, and credit monitoring
Gym membership: $149 for Pure Barre
Husband’s physical therapy: $130 (portion not covered by insurance)
Car insurance: $3,200 annually. (This seems high, considering we have good records, don’t drive much, and both cars are paid off. I need to look into this)
Life Insurance: $3,100 annually
Day 1 (Saturday):
6:00 AM: Wake up. I’m doing a modular course for my graduate degree, and the class wraps up today. I study for the exam that happens this afternoon. A little after 7, I walk to a nearby coffee shop and buy a large Americano for $4.50 including tip. When I’m back at the hotel, I pack up my room since I fly home tonight. I leave a $20 tip for the housekeeping staff and scribble a thank you note on some scratch paper. On the way out, I drop my bags at the bell stand. The hotel cost is covered by tuition.
9:00: Meet with my study team to finalize a paper and presentation that’s due today. At noon, we break for lunch (also covered by tuition). I have a salad and lots of carbonated caffeine. After lunch, we have an hour-long final exam.
2:00: Final course wrap up. It’s been an intense week-long session. I learned a lot, but am so ready to head home. I walk back to the hotel to retrieve my bags. Along the way, I stop to buy an empanada ($8 including tip). Then I call an Uber to the airport ($55 including tip). While in the Uber, I talk to my husband and daughters, who are 1.5 and almost 4. Due to the time difference, it’s their bedtime and if I don’t catch them now, I’ll lose my chance. I promise them that I’ll be home when they wake up in the morning. A lot of my classmates went to dinner together before heading to the airport. On the one hand, I have FOMO because my classmates are awesome. But on the other hand, it was really important to me to talk to my family, and I know I couldn’t have done that easily in a bustling restaurant (i’ve tried, and it was a frustrating experience for everyone!).
6:00: Arrive at the airport. I check my bag ($35). Once I’m through security, I pick up some souvenirs. My hotel wasn’t in an area with good shopping options, and the class days were pretty packed anyway. I get locally made chocolate for my husband. The girls get a small stuffed animal each, and a book to share ($70 total). Then I treat myself to crab cakes and a French 75 to celebrate the end of the week ($60 including tip).
10:00: On the flight, I read until the cabin lights go out and then try to sleep. I used to be able to sleep better on red eyes, but I wake up every 15 minutes.
Day 1 Total: $252.50

Day 2 (Sunday):
6:00: Flight lands and I gather my bags and take the parking shuttle. Although I parked in an economy lot, the total was still $174. Ugh – this has been an expensive week.
7:45: Arrive home. The girls crawled into our bed and are snuggled up next to my husband. The toddler wakes up as I come into the room and the look on her face when she sees me is indescribably gratifying. Our preschooler wakes up soon after. It’s so good to be reunited with my people! We all head downstairs and have breakfast (waffles and cereal, plus a huge pot of coffee). It’s cold and rainy today and we spend the morning watching TV together.
10:00: Our toddler falls asleep for her nap, and my husband encourages me to do the same. Our preschooler is happily entertaining herself with Legos and puzzles, so I doze for a couple hours. Around 1:00, we all have turkey sandwiches for lunch. Then, I take over kid duty so my husband can finally have some time to himself. He spends the afternoon woodworking in his basement workshop.
2:00: Our preschooler’s birthday is coming up. I buy digital invites from Etsy ($12) and send them to Staples to print ($16 with a promo). They are ready in about 2 hours and we pick them up. My preschooler asks for kinetic sand at Staples and I cave in and buy it for her ($11). I constantly complain about the amount of “stuff” in our house, but to be honest, I’m guilty of contributing to the clutter. When we get home, I spend the afternoon doing crafts with the girls.
5:15: We heat up some leftovers that my inLlaws dropped off while I was gone. We do the girls’ bedtime routine a little early since everyone seems tired. Lights out by 8:00 for the girls. Then I catch up on work email and start making a list for the week. For the purposes of this money diary, my husband mentions that he spent $270 yesterday on groceries. Then I watch Succession and head to bed
Day 2 Total: $387

Day 3 (Monday):
5:08: My alarm goes off because I typically go to Pure Barre on Monday morning. I’m still jetlagged so I decide not to go today. I hadn’t actually signed up for a class because I had a feeling this would happen.
6:30: Everyone else is still asleep, so I go downstairs to make coffee and enjoy a few quiet moments to myself. When my husband and kids wake up, we all have breakfast (frozen waffles and berries for the kids. English muffins for the adults).
8:30: Drop the kids off at daycare and then get to work. I work primarily from home, so I just have to walk upstairs to my office nook. I spend the morning prepping for an important meeting tomorrow with senior leadership. I get a reminder on our phone that our toddler has a well-child visit today…usually I sync my calendars, but I totally neglected to log this on my work calendar, and it conflicts with a meeting with our chief of staff. CRAP. I debate canceling the doctor’s appointment, but decide to keep it. Our toddler is getting vaccines today and if I don’t keep the appointment, I’m not sure when I can reschedule. I apologize profusely to our COS and ask if we can reschedule. She says not to worry, and that she appreciates the extra time in her schedule…hopefully I didn’t make a bad judgment call.
1:15: I quickly eat a turkey sandwich for lunch and then pick up our toddler from daycare for her appointment. These well visits usually take 30 minutes and are covered by insurance. As luck would have it, we spend 90 minutes waiting because they are running behind. Luckily, I have snacks and activities in my purse to occupy her. To pass the time, I browse for favors and paper goods for our older daughter’s upcoming party. I end up buying paper goods, decor, and favors ($67 from Target) and iced sugar cookies ($240 from Etsy). As I type this, I realize how bananas it is to spend that much on decorated sugar cookies. Our incomes have increased pretty dramatically in the past few years, and although we haven’t increased our fixed expenses, we’ve definitely succumbed to lifestyle inflation for one-off things like this. It’s something I need to be aware of. I’m finally home around 3:30, just in time for my next call. My husband is WFH today and takes over kid duty during this call.
5:15: It’s time to pick up our older daughter from preschool, but my call is running long so my husband picks her up. For dinner, we make salads topped with roast chicken. The toddler loves salad, but our preschooler proclaims “I don’t like green leaves – I’m not a caterpillar!”. Well, okay then.
8:30: We do the girls’ bedtime routine, and then I continue prepping for tomorrow’s meeting. I wrap up around 1:00 am. While I’m working, husband preps two meals that just need to be reheated sometime later in the week. Good night!
Day 3 Total: $307

Day 4 (Tuesday):
7:30: Kids and I sleep in a bit this morning. My husband left home around 5:45 since he’s going into the office, so the three of us are on our own. For breakfast, the toddler has toast and berries. The preschooler has bran cereal and a frozen waffle. I eat their scraps, washed down with coffee.
9:15: I drop the kids off at daycare a little late this morning. Then I get working and practice the presentation I’m giving at 11:00
12:05: Call is over and I think it went as well as could be expected. I make myself a turkey sandwich for lunch. Then I go to the post office to mail a birth certificate request for our youngest daughter’s passport application. The cost for the birth certificate is $50. I also spend $15 at the post office to mail the envelope and buy stamps. Then it’s back to work.
5:10: Pick the girls up from school. My husband gets home around 6:45. Dinner tonight is a tofu and broccoli stir fry with rice. I don’t cook much, but I make this meal weekly and it’s everyone’s favorite. The secret is that I use soy sauce that is seasoned for seafood. I can’t explain what’s different, but the taste is so much different than standard soy sauce.
7:30: Bathtime and bed for the girls. I text with a mom from daycare whose kids are the same age as ours. We arrange a playdate for an upcoming weekend. I’m hopeful that she and I will develop a friendship – making friends is hard when you’re an adult!
9:10: I debate doing schoolwork or “work work.” Schoolwork wins tonight…I spend about two hours prepping a case study.
Day 4 Total: $65

Day 5 (Wednesday):
5:30: Wake up and start working. I still have a lot of deliverables to catch up on. Husband leaves as usual to commute into the city.
7:00: I get an email and text message that daycare had to close today due to unforeseen circumstances. There was an issue with their plumbing that impacts the whole building. Oh no – I immediately feel a pit in my stomach. I really can’t afford this today, especially because I am out this Friday for another day of class. Although our preschooler is pretty independent, our toddler needs constant supervision. She’s always a moment away from jumping off a couch, climbing on a table, or otherwise causing herself bodily harm. My husband has multiple meetings with his division president today so he can’t realistically come home to help. Argh. I feed us all breakfast and prepare myself for a difficult day. I send my boss an email to let him know the situation, but promise to stay on top of my work after hours as needed. I also log a half day of PTO in the payroll system…I figure I can probably be about 50% productive today.
10:00: Our toddler falls asleep for a nap, so I frantically send out emails and run reports. Our preschooler watches shows on her tablet.
12:15: Toddler is up from her nap. Our poor preschooler has been on her tablet for too long and her eyes are glazed over. I decide to take the girls out for lunch to break up the day. We go to Jersey Mikes since it’s nearby and fast. The girls each have a kids meal and the toddler is delighted that it includes a kids cup. I have an Italian sub ($29). We eat outside and the preschooler hums and loudly proclaims "I love Jersey Mike's!"
1:30: We get back home and I jump on an internal call. Thankfully the girls are well behaved and don’t cause any disruptions, beyond waving hello at the start of the call.
3:00 I have another call and the girls are again on their best behavior. PTL. Maybe I’m just lucky, or maybe it’s that I bribed them with cookies.
4:45: I wrap up the workday a little early. I take the girls on a walk since the weather is nice. When we get back inside, they immediately melt down. The toddler wants to be held constantly, which is a challenge because she weighs 24 pounds. The preschooler is thrashing, spitting at me, and throwing toys. I resist a really strong urge to scream or cry or break something or hide in the bathroom – maybe all at once. Instead, I heat up one of the meals my husband made earlier this week. When our preschooler calms down, she asks if I still love her when she’s bad. She’s been asking this question a lot recently, and it makes me wonder if it’s just a phase, or if she needs more reassurance from us. Either way, it's heartbreaking to know she worries about this.
7:30: Husband had a late meeting, so he gets home later than normal. We do the girls bedtime and bathtime routines. We get another note from daycare saying that the plumbing issue is, unfortunately, still unresolved. We’ll get a tuition credit, but they will be closed another day. Husband and I talk through logistics. We agree that he’ll go into the city again tomorrow and I’ll handle the kids. His company is in the middle of a major reorg and it’s important for him to be there in person. We decide to ask his parents if they are available to help tomorrow. Between work, the kids, and my grad program, sometimes I feel like the only thing we talk about is logistics. It’s been at least 6 months since we’ve been on a date.
10:00: I catch up on work, and also prep for school this coming weekend. I go to bed a little after 1:00.
Day 5 Total: $29

Day 6 (Thursday):
5:45: Husband is up and out of the house at his normal time. I wake up and run some financial reports while I have the chance.
7:30: Kids are awake. While they eat breakfast I pack their activity bags and snacks since we’re going to my in-laws today. They are semi-retired and often help when we have childcare hiccups. They are truly a godsend. They live about an hour away and we arrive at their house a little after 10:00. On the way, I fill my car up with gas ($52).
12:30: The girls are having a blast with my in-laws. We take a break for lunch, which is chicken nuggets and hummus for the girls. I eat their scraps and also have some Greek yogurt.
4:15: I have a full afternoon of calls, but it goes smoothly thanks to the grandparents. We leave a few minutes after 5:00 and both girls fall asleep before we reach the first traffic light. This makes for a peaceful drive home. Traffic is heavy so we get home around 6:30. I open the mail, and find a surprise medical bill for $572. This is for the toddler’s trip to the ER…14 months ago! This is the first bill we are getting and honestly it had completely slipped my mind. She had a triple infection and ended up severely dehydrated. Seeing this bill dredges up all sorts of unpleasant memories. I’m grateful we have the means to pay this without issue, and I’m grateful she is healthy. I understand it's a privilege to pay a bill like this without thinking twice.
6:45: Husband arrives home. We reheat a pasta dish he made earlier this week and have a salad on the side. The girls are beat today, so we skip bathtime and let them go straight to bed. Thankfully, daycare can reopen tomorrow. I feel like a weight’s been lifted from my shoulders, especially since I have class tomorrow.
9:00: I have a call with my school study team to work on our group project. It lasts for about an hour.
10:30: Husband and I discuss buying a swing set for our backyard. He’s narrowed it down to two choices, and they’re both awesome: three swings, a rock wall, slide, and clubhouse area. I think they both look great, so I leave the final decision in his hands. The total with shipping and tax ends up being $1760. We considered buying a pre-assembled swing set to save time, but similar models cost nearly $6K. He’s handy, so he said he’d prefer to assemble it himself.
Day 6 Total: $2,384

Day 7 (Friday):
6:15: I have class today so I eat breakfast and get dressed early. I tend to wear a lot of athleisure when working from home. Today I put on a structured ponte dress and hastily apply Tarte makeup to give my skin some color. Every time I make the effort to get dressed, I'm reminded that I really do feel more confident when I look put together. I get to school around 9:00 for my first class.
12:00: Break in my schedule for lunch. I eat a salad and some kind of chicken dish, while catching up with classmates. For dessert, I have a huge bowl of berries. Lots more coffee to keep me awake and engaged during class.
7:00: Classes are over for the day. I pay parking ($17) and am on my way. I get home at 8:30, in time to do bedtime with my girls. Husband made veggie quesadillas with black beans and guac, which I eat once the girls are asleep. I check my work email to make sure nothing is on fire. Then my husband and I watch an episode of “What We Do In the Shadows” and turn in for the night.
Day 7 Total: $17

Food + Drink: $371.50
Fun / Entertainment: $2,106
Home + Health: $572
Clothes + Beauty: $0
Transport: $333
Other: $155
Weekly Total: $3537.5
Reflections: Some of this week’s expenditures were unusual: the swing set, my travel expenses, and that old ER bill are not part of our normal recurring expenses. However, the rest of this week's spending was pretty typical. I realize a lot of this diary revolved around sorting out childcare disruptions…honestly, that takes so much mental and logistical energy on a weekly basis. Writing this diary also made me realize how little time my husband and I spend together. Often we feel like we’re in survival mode, but we need to be more intentional about prioritizing our relationship.

2023.05.30 06:34 DineshP7575 HOW LOSS OF WEIGHT EFFECTS YOUR LIFE

Losing excess weight can help eliminate or reduce your chances of developing those health issues. Losing weight can help lower your blood pressure and cholesterol. Diabetes, heart disease, stroke, gallbladder disease, and osteoarthritis can all be reduced.
When you have extra pounds to lose, it improves many aspects of your physical health and well-being. Weight loss can cause changes in your personal life, mental health, senses, and other areas. If you're looking to lose weight, want to lose more, or have already lost a lot and want to keep it off, consider some of the less-known benefits and other changes that come with losing weight.
Improved Sleep
Losing excess weight may allow you to sleep better at night. Many overweight people have difficulty sleeping. This is frequently due to sleep apnea, a difficulty breathing while sleeping that is more common in overweight people. Losing weight can help with your breathing problems. You may discover that you are more likely to sleep through the night. Throughout the day, you may feel more alert and rested.
Better Mood
Weight loss doesn’t just make your body feel good. It boosts your mood and mental health. In a study of obese older adults, 3 months after a significant weight loss, they reported less tension, depression, anger, and fatigue. And it went both ways. People whose moods were better dropped more pounds. Keeping a healthy weight lowers the risk of depression, anxiety, and other mental health problems. A good mood and a healthy weight go together.
Food with a Unique Flavor
Gains in Intelligence
Obesity has been linked to problems with memory, thinking skills, and overall brain function, according to research. A study of 20 overweight women suggests that it also works the other way. Despite the fact that it was a small study, the women performed better on memory tests after losing weight. Following the weight loss, certain parts of their brain became more active.
A Better Sexual Experience
Obese people frequently report a lack of interest in sex or a general dislike of it. Overweight men may experience erectile dysfunction. The good news is that losing excess weight can be beneficial. A meta-analysis of 16 weight-loss studies found that when people lose weight, their sex life improves.
Lower Your Health Risks
Obesity increases your chances of developing a variety of health issues. Losing excess weight can help eliminate or reduce your chances of developing those health issues. Losing weight can help lower your blood pressure and cholesterol. Diabetes, heart disease, stroke, gallbladder disease, and osteoarthritis can all be reduced.
Reduce Your Cancer Risk
People with more body fat are more likely to develop a variety of cancers. Losing weight can reduce your risk of developing breast, endometrial, colon, prostate, and other cancers. Even if you do get cancer, you'll have a better chance of beating it if you fight it at a healthier weight.
Skin that is loose and hanging
This is an unfavorable side effect of significant weight loss. If you've lost a significant amount of weight, your skin won't simply return to its previous state. Extra folds or flaps on your belly, thighs, arms, chin, or breasts are possible. You might not like how they appear. This extra skin can be uncomfortable and even infected. A plastic surgeon can perform surgery to remove the excess tissue.
Your metabolism slows down.
You've lost a lot of weight because you've been eating less. When you drastically reduce the amount of food you consume each day, your body begins to process it more slowly. This can make it more difficult to lose weight after you've already lost some. More exercise, including strength training to build muscle mass, can help your metabolism.
Your Body Clock Changes
Fixed meal times can assist in regulating the internal clock that keeps your body running on a 24-hour cycle. If you've altered your eating habits to help you lose weight, you may notice changes in your sleeping and waking patterns. If you want to keep losing weight, studies show that when you eat is important. Overweight and obese women, for example, may lose more weight if they eat a larger breakfast and fewer calories at dinner, even if their total calories for the day are the same.
Changes in Body Temperature
Body temperature has been linked to obesity in men and postmenopausal women, according to researchers. (In other women, menstrual cycles may help regulate body temperature.) According to the data, a higher BMI is associated with a higher body temperature. If you lose a lot of weight, you may notice that you feel cooler.

2023.05.30 06:33 frustratedrobot lost everything in the span of a year

I feel worthless.
I gambled away 100k in 1 years time thanks in part to online slots.
It started innocently enough a $20 here, then I started to win big then i started to lose.
I was throwing more money and bigger bets chasing my losses and not keeping track of my spending.
now my nest egg is gone.
I haven't told my family, I break out, panicking that they will find out.
When they find out I know I will be disowned and kicked out.
It's sick, today I went shopping with my mom and bought a few clothes and dismayed over spending $120 then I went online and gambled away 2 grand.
I've officially hit rock bottom.

2023.05.30 06:33 JinseinoBakuhatsu Alien Force RANT (1-5)

Alien force is so bad and i'm frustrated, I just finished rewatching the original series and now moved on to Alien forced so far watched 5 episodes. They fucked everthing up.
Gwen - what have they done to you? they got rid of her personality and vigour, now she's just a generic boring insert female character who is the subject of love interests. Getting carried out of the fight on the ship by Kevin was embarrassing old Gwen would never let others dictate her actions. Speaking of Kevin, Gwen saying she likes Kevin and wants him to ask her out? Wtf am I listening to? the criminal and murderer that she met again for five minutes, is the guy she wants to date? could this get any dumber. This is not Gwen.
Also there's no more spell or spellbook, they've taken all the fun out of her magic to replace with generic purple energy, also retconing her to be an alien which is just nonsense. I hate her outfit aswell just a bland schoolgirl outfit with a skirt that wouldn't be comfortable or practical for her to jump around kicking people like she did before.
Ben - character is as i'd want, except his over obsession with Max, however they've taken ALL the fun out of the omnitrix. There's no more timing out, he ethier has control over it or it just times out at the right moment everytime, there's no drama any more, no tension.. he knows the name of the aliens BEFORE he turns into them and how to use their powers . This is lazy shit writing they've taken away the fun of learning the new aliens.
Kevin- gets over his hatred of Ben/ being locked away in a negative zone way too quickly.. likes Gwen immediately.. because? plot. Kevin wasn't a generic edgy bad boy he was a murdering psychopath and this progression makes zero sense. Also retconning more powers he absorbs ENERGY not matter.
PLOT - so far I have some issues, plumper badges retcon? why do they look like the omnitrix which the plumbers didn't know existed? not just a retcon it's a plot hole, apparently the plumbers liked to fuck aliens and now all their kids are half aliens with powers this is the dumbest part of the plot. The idea fucking aliens gives u powers, the fact they can even have kids with aliens genetically, the fact the plumbers wouldn't vermently forbid this.. plumbers kids are just normal clueless humans who have no clue what there parents did, this part of the plot is beyond moronic.

I will continue to hate watch this show but god I miss the original.. good thing I was a kid when this was out and didn't care about or notice any of this.

2023.05.30 06:33 Alternative_Cook_102 Dragon Ball GT Power Scale (Part 1)

Dragon Ball GT Power Scale (Part 1, The black star dragon balls and Baby arc)
Cool Picture (don't click)
Hello everyone, this a remaster of my previous scale for Dragon Ball GT with improved scaling and better formating.
For scaling I will be using Domination multipliers, which are the only somewhat usable system I found. In the daizenshu it was stated you needed 2x your opponent's chi to completely overwhelm them and take thier attacks unharmed and if a character is 1.25x their opponent they will start to overwhelm them, this is evident in the frieza fight. Goku had a power level of 150,000,000 and frieza had Power level of 120,000,000, the difference was of 1.25 times but Goku still somewhat overwhelmed him. Thou Frieza could have killed Goku if he hadn't fought carefully.
Another thing I will using X or times buu saga base Goku to show their power growth.
Here are the domination multipliers,
1.25x - A Little but noticeable gap in power.
2x - completely overwhelms the opponent and can tank their attack
It has been 15 years since the battle with kid buu and 5 years since the end of Z, Goku has been training with uub. Goku is supposedly stronger then his buu saga counterpart but due there being no real way to quantify that. Base GT Goku is 1 in this scale, with ssj Goku being 50x buu saga Goku and such and such for his transformations.
They are suddenly attacked the pilaf gang and Goku gets turns in a child by black star dragon balls, this starting the story. Apparently the balls were going destroy the planet if they are not gathered in a year, so Goku, pan and trunks go fucking space to get them.
Some fights happen here and there like the legic fight and the lord luud fight, with the latter being stronger then ssj Goku but these fights mean nothing until the rildo fight, also there has been an significant time skip since the start of the show. In rildo fight, there is the most important statements for scaling early GT. Goku States rildo is even stronger then buu, now there's quite a bit of confusion on which buu it is. I believe it to kid buu as he is last buu to face Goku, so I am gonna go with that.
Since Base Goku is evenly matched with rildo, they are both atleast 400x BSG. Goku eventually goes SSJ, which would make him 20,000x BSG. Rildo also powers up but isn't able to match Goku, so he transforms again to finally somewhat match Goku. He gives Goku a pretty hard time due to his hax, this leds to Goku getting captured but later escapes, baby is also revealed. Baby fights the z fighters and matches quite evenly with them after absorbing rildo (he can do that). This baby is atleast 400x BSG as he is comparable to base Goku. Baby eventually arrives on earth.
He first fights goten, who is able to fight evenly with him in base, so base goten is atleast 400x bsg. Goten eventually goes Ssj, which would make him 20,000x bsg. Baby somehow manages to control this goten and then proceeds to challenge Gohan, who is about the same as baby goten. He wins and takes control of Gohan. One thing about baby, he makes his hosts stronger but it's hard to quantify, so I am ignoring it completely. Baby Gohan challenges Vegeta and is even matched, making Vegeta also the same as baby Gohan. After a while baby wins and takes control of Vegeta's body.
Goku arrives on earth after some time, and fights off ssj goten and Gohan, in base easily. Making him atleast 2x as strong as them, so new base Goku is 40,000x bsg. Goku eventually goes up against baby Vegeta, who defeats him easily even in ssj3. Ssj3 Goku will be around 16,000,000x bsg and baby Vegeta is 32,000,000x bsg.
Baby transforms further into his super baby forms, his super baby 1 form is stated to be a ssj2 in the GT guidebook and it also that his normal state is a ssj, so it's twice the power of his normal state, making it 64,000,000x BSG and his super baby 2 is just ssj 3 according to the guide, therefore it's 4x stronger. Making it 256,000,000x BSG. Baby is 16x stronger the ssj3 Goku and his base form will be 640,000x bsg.
Just as Baby Vegeta is about to kill him, kabito Kai saves him and accidentally dropped him outside of space and time but it's ok, Goku kinda just blasted out of there. During this time uub tried to fight baby but is easily overwhelmed until he fuses with fat buu, which gives him an incredible boost in power. It makes him almost as strong as baby but not quite, so he's defeated. This puts him at 1.25x less then baby, making him 204,800,000x bsg.
After some tail pulling Goku returns on his new planet but his power is the same, so the result of the battle is the same. Goku accidently looks up to the earth and turns into a fucking monkey and scares the shit out of baby, he is also way stronger then baby. So oozaru Goku is 2x baby, making him 512,000,000x BSG. The oozaru is 32x ssj3 and 12,800x base multiplier.
Goku eventually morphs back in furry, become Ssj4. He destroys baby with it, baby also becomes a monkey and both are evenly matched. Now we apply the oozaru multiplier, which is 32x ssj3, we get 8,192,000,000x BSG. Goku is also that level with Ssj4, now to calculate ssj4's multiplier we divide his Ssj4 by his base power. After doing that we get 204,800x base or 512x ssj3.
Baby Vegeta and Goku knock eachother out, baby is healed by bulma using blitz waves and Goku gets healed by his friends, Goku also gains a new form called super full power Ssj4 (FpSsj4). Goku proceeds to tank multiple super galick gun and revenge death ball, the galick gun is reletive to the 10x kamehameha (normal kamehameha is a 2.2 boost) so, it's atleast a 22x boost and the death ball is stronger as he knows Goku can eat his galick guns, so it's atleast 2x that making it a 44x boost.
Goku tanks and absorbs the revenge death ball, making him twice it's power. This puts FpSsj4 Goku at 88x stronger then regular ssj4, that's 18,022,400x base or 45,056x ssj3, Ssj4 Goku himself is at 720,896,000,000x BSG. Goku after beating baby Vegeta kills baby's actual body. This ending the arc, wait till part 2 for super 17.
The form multipliers are:- Golden Ozaru:- 12,800x base or 32x ssj3
Ssj4:-204,800x base or 512x ssj3
FpSsj4:-18,022,400x base or 45,056x ssj3.
In conclusion,
Goku:-(rildo fight). Base:- 400x bsg, SSJ:- 20,000x bsg (baby arc) Base:- 40,000x bsg, SSJ3:- 16 million x BSG, Oozaru:- 512 million x BSG, SSJ4:- 8.192 billion x BSG and FpSsj4:- 720.8 billion x BSG.
Vegeta,Gohan and Goten:- (All) base:- 400x BSG, SSJ:- 20,000x bsg.
Baby Vegeta:- Base:- 640,000x bsg, Normal state or SSJ:- 32 million x bsg, Super Baby 1:- 64 million x BSG, Super Baby 2:- 256 million x BSG, Golden Oozaru:- 8.192 billion x BSG
Rildo:- base:- 400x BSG, metal form:- 20,000x bsg.

2023.05.30 06:33 scaryfurbie19 I just found out trans women’s facial surgeries are covered by insurance and I’m LIVID

Edit: sorry for any formatting issues I’m on mobile
No, I’m not mad at trans women. They don’t run the insurance companies but I am PISSED at insurance and our healthcare all around. Long story short when I was 11 I took a softball to the face that destroyed me. Two days after I was hit I went under for facial reconstruction. When I woke up we were told my nose was mush, the best comparison my surgeon said he could make was that everything was so shattered it was like gravel. He told me & my parents that later in life I would more than likely have a deviated septum and/or other issues arise. He was right.
At 25 I was able to go back to an ENT as I was having many issues. Turns out not only did I have a deviated septum, I also had bone spurs, a giant nasal polyp, and most importantly due to the gravel nature of my nose when it was shattered my airways were built too small. I spent years being made fun of for snoring issues, I was laughed at by coaches & teammates when I would say breathing in through my nose when exercising/going all out was painful and I would end up gasping for air through my mouth, turns out I wasn’t crazy.
But here’s the thing. BCBS has fought to hell & back to try and get every little thing they can covered as cosmetic. Not only did my nose have to be worked on they had to break both of my jaws & move them forward first. But that didn’t go well. My jaw surgery was Feb. 26, 2020. I was back in surgery to have the bottom plates removed after a screw came out and it was pushing through my gums. Upper plate removal and my nasal surgery happened on the same day in Jan. 2021.
But uh oh guess who’s nose didn’t hold up because BCBS fought to get stuff labeled as cosmetic there were issues & my dr tried to help me by working around it. The original plan was to rebuild my nose using rib or ear tissue, 30 minutes before surgery Dr tells me skull tissue is actually going to be the best match BUT insurance is refusing to cover. We made a deal that if he didn’t have to cut in my skull to please not because I’m already poor having to work through the pandemic & having these surgeries. I wake up & am informed there was enough cartilage in my nose that they were able to use that to rebuild & “straighten” my nose. Well 3 months later the left side (which is the side the softball came in from) collapsed. I’m in so much pain every single day. TRIGGER WARNING: I’ve had suicidal ideation issues before & have come close but it was always other reasons. This past November was the first time I’ve ever wanted to commit for no other reason than the physical pain I feel in my face. I also have neck & head issues. I’ve had to go to a neurologist who says my next surgeries I MUST have a neurosurgeon present. They have to fix the left side but BCBS refuses to cover it. Also my eardrum has now gone concave, the ENT said it’s actually due to my jaws & the issues I’ve been experiencing. I had to move to a different state because my first round of surgeries was with the best surgeons & hospital in my state but they messed me up even worse. And I truly believe it’s because insurance got in the way of them being able to do what needed to be done to pay out of pocket for “cosmetic” surgeries.
I say all of that just to say I found out today & looked it up to confirm but trans women have their faces worked on for no other reason than to change their outward cosmetic appearance but is covered under “gender affirming care”. Again I’m not mad at trans women they aren’t the underwriters on these policies but oh my god I cannot describe fully the anger, bitterness, and a weird sense of defeat I felt when I found this out. I’m tired, disability is not easy to get as a 28 year old no matter how many notes my GP, Neuro, ENT, Jaw, and even my therapist send in. If I went into all the medical issues I’ve been experiencing we would be here all day. This past year I’ve lost the ability to work full time, I’ve been put on 3 different types of seizure medications (which is brand new & I hate it, they’re myoclonic seizures) and to find out that these insurance companies are happy to cover gender affirming facial surgeries but fight tooth & nail to have me pay for my facial surgeries after having parts of my face shattered & caved in just feels like a giant slap in the face.

2023.05.30 06:32 Pilkanoa_Ketnapec Take a look at my (24F) six year relationship with my boyfriend (24M)

The reason I'm writing all of this down is that I know I'm going to forget all of this by tomorrow, or the day after. I'll forget everything that's wrong, and just go back to loving him like I've always done. And then a month or two months from now, something will break my illusion and remember all of this all over again.
He has an infection on his feet, and the stench is enough to make anyone gag. He walks barefoot without washing his feet afterwards, and refuses to go to a doctor to check his broken nail. The smell alone is awful, and if you're stuck in a situation where you can't open a window, you might as well hold your breath. Or at least put his shoes/slippers in a bag.
He doesn't brush his teeth regularly. Sometimes he'll brush in the morning but he forgets at night. His breath smells awful throughout the day.
When he's grooming, he leaves little hairs all over the place: the sink, the mirror, the floor, the toilet, the toilet seat. Even after he showers, there's little hair on the bathroom floor. It's just disgusting that after one day he sheds so much hair. I'm not one to talk, I shed hair too, but at least I pick mine up and throw them away.
A few days ago, he watched porn next to me as I slept. When I started waking up, he told me to go back to sleep. I was scared.
He gets pouty when I say no to sex or his advances. I don't want to have sex every moment of my life. He can be the nicest person all day, but when I say "no, I don't want to" to his sexual advances, he'll get really pissy the rest of the day/night. Call me a prude, call me whatever you want, but I don't like to be woken up by him poking me with his dick every morning asking for sex. Waking up to a sticky thigh makes me feel dirty. Feeling the sheets where he was just sleeping makes me sick. I felt like changing the sheets every single morning just to make sure they're clean.
He questions me every time I want to buy something. "What will you use it for? You know you can buy it cheaper somewhere else. You don't need it." It happens constantly whenever I look at a piece of clothing or X item that I want. These comments I can brush off, but after six years of hearing these comments, they're really starting to annoy me more and more.
I have my own money, if I want something I'll just buy it because I know I can afford it. I know It's a bad logic to follow, because you'll end up with so many little things around the house. But like I said, I can afford the small things I want, I'm tired of his voice hovering over me asking me again and again "why?"
I get it. He doesn't have money, he doesn't want to ask money from his parents to spend because he doesn't know how to repay them back afterwards. Then he'll get mad at them for not giving him money. I get it. I hated spending other people's money too. But that's why you work. To earn your own money. So that you can spend it on things you want.
He's wined these past 6 years about how his parents won't let him work to focus on his studies. And that's great! Not having to worry about work while studying is absolutely great. And he's happy in the field he chose, and I'm happy for him. But it's a very competitive field, and incredibly niche as well, so it might take him a couple years to find work related to his field. So in the meantime, he's working a job semi related to his field, but the first year he worked for free, and this year he has only been paid 200 dollars. They keep promising to pay him and never do, and I've tried convincing him to look for work elsewhere, but he doesn't want to leave.
He's 24 years old, and is barely getting comfortable driving a car. His family has always had 5 cars, one for each member, and he was always asking for rides because he was too scared to drive. Even his younger brother had to drive him to places. He's had his license since he was 18. Its pathetic. Driving him to and from places for 6 years is pathetic. Having to give him money to pay for food for our dates is pathetic. The looks people have given us throughout the years when they see me paying for everything is pathetic. This is too pathetic.
And I'm pathetic for thinking this would change. We got together when we were 18 and I kept thinking throughout these years "he'll mature, he'll gain more confidence. He'll wash up more, dress up more, stand up for me, comfort me when I need him." Its only gotten a little bit better these past few years. At least he hugs me now when I cry instead of just looking at me confused. The bad part is after he holds me for a couple minutes he'll try and make it sexual. And if its through the phone, he'll usually text "I see" or "Ok" whenever I tell him about a problem I'm having today. My cat of 18 years passed away and thats what he responded when I called him to let him know. He said it too when my dog passed away from cancer. When this happened, I called him out on not saying anything, not even an "I'm sorry your pet passed away." he got angry at me for expecting some reaction from him. Is it too much to ask to console your girlfriend when her 11 year old dog dies from cancer????
At 24 years old, with a quarter of my life dedicated to this guy, I don't know what to do. He asked me to be his girlfriend at one of the most vulnerable times in my life, when my brother was put in a coma after an almost fatal car accident. He of course never knew about my brother at that time, but I don't think I should've made that decision two weeks after going through something traumatic. That's my own fault for accepting his request, even at the time I remember asking myself "why the fuck did I say yes?".
A quarter of my life with my boyfriend, a quarter of my life not having my brother to ask for advice. I truly question how everything in my life has affected me. But at this very moment, I have the feeling of ending that relationship. I want to break up with my boyfriend. I've had that feeling on and off since the very first day, but I've stuck around hoping things would get better.
Some things have gotten better, some things haven't. I don't know how to weigh the good and the bad. I need help figuring that part out. I don't want to break up with him and then 10 years later say "gee, I wonder if my life would've been better if I had stayed." That's the part that I need help with.
Please help me.

2023.05.30 06:32 NWOriginal00 Advice for a Senior with dated skills

Most questions here seem to be for new graduates, so here is something different.
I have been writing software for about 25 years. Almost exclusively client server business applications.
Started with MFC. Then C#(mainly version 2 with winforms). Currently using Java.
If I had to change jobs I am not sure I am qualified for much. So I am hoping for suggestions on what jobs to look for with my current skills, or what skills I could add in a reasonable amount of time to be more marketable. I am probably within 5 years of retiring so I am not looking for something which would be years long retraining.
Last time I was in the job market I found that my C# experience did not mean much with out web knowledge. And I know very little about the web. I feel my Java experience is even more useless without a web background.
C++ - I would prefer to return to this language. I am really interested in all the modern C++ additions though do not have a lot of experience. I think I could learn enough to make it through and interview in my free time though. But most of the jobs I see are specialized such as embedded, device drivers, high performance graphics, etc. I do not have any of this experience.
Java - Almost all jobs are web related. I am sure I could learn the equivalent of a fresh boot camp grad in my spare time but I really don't think I can get myself to a senior pay grade. I would really be starting from scratch. I do see a lot of backend web jobs that need Java though. Not sure how much web I need for that?
Cloud - For old school on-premise apps which I am used to, I see a lot of them going to cloud (lift and shift instead of rewriting the whole app for web). From what AWS I have been exposed to it does not seem too hard. But I really hate it. I never had any interest in IT, and the cloud just feels like being an IT guy for virtual machines. Setting up permissions, installing software, opening ports, etc. The only coding looks to be scripts. Maybe I do not have a good picture, but this world really does not interest me.
So any suggestions, other then hang on to my current job and hope I never get laid off?

2023.05.30 06:32 slut_for_rice Is BME right for me??

I understand the stigma of BME being unemployable, but I quite literally do not hold any value on future job prospects. I'm premed ride or die, and I'm completely content with dropping BME in favour of an easier major in case my GPA tanks.
The reason why I want to do BME is because I have this dream of becoming a doctor in the middle of bumfuck nowhere, and engineering medical devices for those who do not have access to healthcare.
Now that I read around, I see that many people complain that BME is simply not a good major to be in, but mostly that debate has been around employability. BME is the only engineering discipline that fulfills most of my medical school prerequisite courses, and it ties into something that I'm truly interested in: healthcare.
My question is: is my time better spent somewhere else? I'm interested in planes and aviation as well, so I was thinking aerospace engineering. I figured as long as I can get my prerequisites in, I'll make it to med school fine. Unfortunately, there's very little room for extra courses with these majors, so I'm not sure if this is a good idea.
This is mainly a matter about fulfilling dreams and a desire to learn certain things for mine, instead of a pure employability debate. I'll have a decade to learn about biology, chemistry, and all about the medical sciences, but I know for a fact that I won't have forever to learn about planes, and why they fly.

2023.05.30 06:31 Kylestien Dumb "Where are they now?" thing for Advance Wars 2.

People seemed to like the first one I did so I thought I'd do a second now I finally finished AW2. (That last mission is a bitch by the way.)
Andy: The strain of a second war had tired him. He had hoped that after the events of 1, all he'd need to do are practise drills. So when the war was finally over, he dedicated himself to improving Orange Star's early warning systems. If Black Hole rises again in another land, they'll know.
Max: Max decided that, with his extensive knowledge of tanks, he could probably improve the Neotank even if it was already technologicaly advanced. His idea of "add 300 more gun turrets to it" was however shot down by R and D, who said they'd be lucky to add 5.
Sami: Sami decided to do a recruitment drive for Orange Star after the events of the war. She figured the best way of doing that was to do more humanitarian work in the war torn nation. It did wonders to both fixing up the place as well as getting more people to join.
Nell: Having seen the devastation that Black Hole had caused not once, but twice, Nell decided that it would be better for an alliance between the four nations to become more official, on the offchance that they rise again under Hawke. While talks between the four leaders have not progressed past the naming stage yet, she is hopefull for progress. Her sister is still too young to join the army, but seeing Nell attempting to acheive the impossible has only inspired her further to do so.
Hatchi: Confident that he can leave Orange Star's fate in the hands of the youngen's now, he decided to keep enjoying his beach hut and business. Do not ask how he got Sturm as a hirable CO for outside the campaign. You do NOT want to know how he pulled that off. Also he might have to kill you.
Olaf: After seeing his hometown devastated in the war, Olaf was distraught. As part of the negotiations for Nell's upcoming allaince, he requested funds to repair his wartorn nation. They were granted, and Olaf also spent his own resources, even putting in hos own physical effort, to repairing the city and other places hit by the Black Hole army. The town square has been restored to it's former glory. Everyone agrees it's pretty nice.
Grit: Grit decided it would be a good idea to try and figure out if any of the resources Black Hole stole were left over, or if they were all spent. Turns out that Sturm had been keeping a horde of them in a secret base on the offchance he did in fact need to retreat and go for Round 3. Grit donated his find to the negotiations for an alliance
Colin: for his part in the war effort at such a young age, Colin was award the Medal of The Bear, one of Blue Moon's most highly venerated war medals. Not long after, he received a complaint from his men about the shoddieness of their equipment and being thrown into the meat grinder, and how it was bad for moralde. Colin listened ... kind of... and had a arcade room installed in every base. Morale has risen by 20%, but they still would have prefered guns that work.
Eagle: The saying "Great minds think alike" is an accurate one, as, much like Andy, Eagle decided to improve Green Earth's early warning systems AND their defenses, reasoning that since they got hit the hardest by Black Hole, they needed to be better prepared for next time. Every town now has it's own air base. In times of peace, they even put on air shows and fake dogfights.
Drake: Drake meanwhile did a complete overhual of Green Earth's navy, reasoning pretty much the same. He also put forwards the idea of a submersable repair drone for fixing ships up on the fly, but was told that was basicaly impossible, especialy for the already submersable submarines.
Jess: The war over and her homeland safe, Jess went back to her studies abroad. The head of the faclity was annoyed as all get out due to the fact that she had left without any warning, during the middle of a important class, and knocked over and destoryed a valuable teaching tool on the way out... but relented when told the situation. She is in great student debt for the broken tool, but is content.
Kanbei: Kanbei, while absolutely willing to form an allaince with the others, is possibly the main reason it is still in the planning stages, His request to call the alliance "Kanbei's United Army" being repeatedly declined. However, it's not all bad from him, as he is also adamdent on getting every soilder in this new united allaince the best equipment and training possible. The soilders love him for it, but both demands are slowing down talks.
Sonja: Sonja, realising the greatiest threat in their campaign was the genious scientist Lash, begain her oqn quest: to either hunt down and kill Lash, or recruit her for Gold Comet. Honestly, after her little taunts dug a bit too deep into her soul, she was not sure which. However, despite her best efforts, she did not succed in locating her. Apparently she hid herself much better then Sturm ever did.
Sensei: After a breif trip to some remote isle for a holiday, Senset thanks the old guard for taking part in the war, and asked Kanbei to increase their pensions dramaticaly for thier effort. Such was agreed. Now Sensei can afford a nice traditional house by the beach. AND hire a jazz band for events!
Flak: Annoyed at one too many failures from him in the campaign, Hawke demonted Flak back down to private again. However, while he may have been useless as a CO, his time as such made him too effective as a private, showing cunning and ruthlesses greater then compatriots. In the end, Hawke repromoted him, deciding that a weak but well treat CO was better then a competant and power hungry up and comer.
Lash: Lash decided to go aground, taking the effort of rebuilding by doing so from a hidden location with her Lashbots. She actualy loved the rebuiilding process more then the devastation it caused, a revelation that surprised her, even if she could not yet admit it to herself. Ironicaly, Sonja DID find her one time, but Lash, desperate and out of tricks, pretended to be one of her Lashbots in the vain hope she'd just go away. Somehow, against all odds, it fucking worked. Sonja will never know how close she came...
Adder: being terrified after the threats made to him by Sensei, Adder also decided to go to ground. Having built himself a hidden panic room in the middle of nowhere with some spare resources, he fled, waiting for the order from Hawke to rebuild. However, when he got to his panic room... someone had already been there, and left a gun with one bullet and a note: "It's a better option then ruining people's homes and meeting me again, sunny." Adder kept the gun, planning to shoot the old fucker with it if they DO meet again.
Sturm: Sturm is dead, but the fear of someone somehow reviving him once more, dcespite that seemingly being impossible, was so great that the allaince agreed to take his body (Or rather, the dirt where his body was before being vaporized) and scatter them across both lands. They hope this will be enough to make sure that Sturm never rises again.
Hawke: Hawkes whereabouts are unknown...

2023.05.30 06:31 ragindaisysfavorit Is Silent Alarm likely to get a 20th anniversary tour?

I know they did a 15th anniversary tour in 2019 so it's pretty unlikely that they'd do another one for its 20th but I really really hope they do. For the longest time it was the only Bloc Party album I listened to and I still love it. I'm ecstatic that they played Like Eating Glass in DC, but that song is so amazing and I don't feel like I fully soaked it in so I'm determined to see them play it again. I'd also love to hear Pioneers and Blue Light for the first time, and possibly even Little Thoughts! I know it's technically not on the album but they put it smack dab in the middle of the album on Spotify so I always considered it part of the album and not a bonus track lol

2023.05.30 06:31 Lower-Beat-351 My first time

"the abyss of unending anxiety"
The trip:
I had only just recently started weed again as I had a traumatic experience with it years ago when I tried it the first time which pretty much scared me away from the substance for a very long time- I pretty much thought I was a tough guy and thought hell why not and took a fat 10 second rip off of my friends cart and proceeded to go running around in the woods at midnight- yeah genius I know.
Anyways enough about that I had been using marijuana for a solid two or three months now and I figured I had completely mastered the substance and was ready for the next level naturally shrooms were the next on the list for me and being the cautious person I am, I decided to do all of the research I could on shrooms in order to prepare myself for what was to come from them. little did I know nothing could have prepared me for what happened that night. I had finally finished my research which was composed of mostly trip reports by vivec and tales from the trip as well as some research online about the affects, the duration of the high, strains how much to take etc. When I decided it was time to begin preparing myself mentally for what was to come. my research had told me that mindset and where you are in life at the moment played a key role in how the trip was going to go, so I began listening to smooth Jazzy music and just generally making an effort to stay positive for a week leading up the time I had planned to take them, I was at a friend's house hanging out with 2 friends one being my best friend of 5 years Who I will call N and the other a friend of N's who I had only hung out with a couple times before. we were playing Halo, talking and passing around a bong packed with high quality Mary-Jane that I had brought when the subject of shrooms came up, I knew these two both had connections to people who would definitely have access to hard drugs. the dealers I knew only had access to marijuana so I asked them both "how much would i have to pay for 4 Grams of shrooms" to which our mutual friend replied it's about 10$ a gram for us man but being your not a regular it will likely be more" I asked them if they could buy them so I could get a discount to which the both agreed they would do. 3 days later after I had given them 40 bucks for the shrooms I came and picked them up and stared at them when I got home taking in every detail so I could match them up to what they said the strain was which was enigma or Omni shrooms which are an extremely potent and rare mutant of 3 very powerful strains of shrooms.
I had N come over to be my trip sitter as he had 2 prior experiences with shrooms before. Both of which he told me he never saw anything but he did tell me he laid down in the grass outside of his house and stared at the sky for 2 hours mind you he had done 5gs of the stuff and said it was the same strain I was getting I was surprised by this and asked our mutual friend about his experience on the stuff with a similar dosage he said that he had a blast but he too never had any hallucinations. I was a bit confused and let down by this as I had expected alot more from a said powerful mutant of 3 shrooms. The day I had planned to take the shrooms I had woken up and carried out my regular routine of making a coffee and I reminded myself that I only needed to eat breakfast and a small one at that to ensure the shrooms worked at peak potential. As I ate my breakfast and scrolled through my phone listening to peaceful jazz and scrolling through many many happy birthday wishes- see I had just turned 18 and I thought to myself "wow what a time for my first psychedelic experience" I played need for speed and awaited N's arrival I had planned on taking them around 6pm to get a good amount of day time and night time in my trip. When N finally arrived it was around 5:30pm "perfect I thought as I looked up from my Xbox and at the clock when I heard my dogs barking at the arrival of my friend he walked into my room we said our greetings and shortly after I went to get some honey as I had heard that the shrooms would taste horrible I also poured me a decently sized glass of tea and put it into a thermos as I thought to myself "gonna be 6 hours so I better be ready" I brought them both into my room and set them on my dresser as I pulled the shrooms from my drawer examining them as my mom walked in she asked me what they were- I told her they were the shrooms I had told her about doing as I tell her everything and had talked to her about it before I even purchased them. She said alright and wished me good luck. I looked at my friend with a wide grin on my face and said "here we go". I then dipped the brain resembling shrooms into the honey generously Dunking them to avoid the bad taste as I ate them chunk by chunk I realized they didn't even taste that bad almost like a honey comb but without the honey taste I even ate the last chunks with no honey at all N suggested we could play halo while I'm still functioning and he could switch to his call of duty when I began tripping and explained to me it's best to be in a very comfortable position when they begin kicking in. I gladly took him up on the offer.
The trip: everything was normal for the first 15 minutes until I started to feel like something was off it wasn't uncomfortable but I began feeling of warmness and almost a low level weed high I told N about this. He said that it wasn't normal for anything to start happening this early as it normally takes 30 minutes to an hour for them to kick in. I wasn't swayed by this and I continued gaming. 30 minutes in- this is when they really started to kick in I was still playing the game when I began feeling this out of place and uncomfortable tightness in my chest and left arm I thought this was odd but I decided not to let it affect me. Then I looked down at the carpet in my room and noticed my first visuals the carpet was beginning to move and wiggle about resembling that of waves of water I thought this was amazing so I continued staring when I noticed my friend staring at me with a slight smile on his face "you good?" He said with a Chuckle to which I replied to him "the carpet is moving bro" we both laughed and continued playing the game. The tightness in my chest was becoming more powerful but I was still resisting the urge to acknowledge it because I wanted this to be a good experience. I looked at the carpet again and noticed it was now making patterns folding in on itself and it never stopped moving. Every once in a while a streak of purple would run through the carpet which to me was extremely beautiful I told N that I wish he could see the carpet as I see it he told me that it was likely time to begin his game and let me lay down I agreed and began to lay down as he set up his playstation to my TV this is when the most strange thing happened I looked at my dog Lucy and she was beginning to wave like the ocean her fur flowed like water but she appeared to be completely still and normal I got this overwhelming feeling of love and happiness from Lucy so I began hugging her and telling her that I loved her my dog didn't move and I imagine my friend was thinking "oh he's tripping now" I had the urge to urinate so I got up and walked towards the door of my room N stopped me asked me where I was going and if I was ok I told him "No I'm fine I just need to use the restroom" as I stood up the affects really began kicking in I felt an intense wave of euphoria go through my body I began laughing for no reason and Headed towards the bathroom when I got there I looked at myself and the mirror and noticed my pupils were so wide that I had lost all of the green color in my eye instead it was replaced with the black pupil I thought this was hilarious for some reason, as I stared I slowly began looking like a cartoon with massive eyes as I laughed and looked at myself in the mirror once I was done I went to go urinate when I began the toilet suddenly began to get further and further away and began distorting in an odd and wavy kind of way I remember this vividly and told N about it the next day. As I left the bathroom back into my room I saw N playing call of duty I sat down. Which now I realize was a bad choice as I should have laid back down and surrendered to the intense euphoria going through me it was around and hour into the trip now. I looked away from the screen that my friend was playing and back down to the beautiful carpet it was making patterns just like before but far more intense and the movement was more angular I got lost staring at the carpet and the patterns began becoming more and more obvious as I stared I began being completely mesmerized by the patterns in the carpet till the point they became all encompassing. after almost 10 whole minutes staring into the carpet I finally looked back up at my friend his face began distorting and moving I recognized who he was but he looked different now the tightness in my chest was back and it was becoming overwhelming i decided not to move back to my bed and delt with the tightness I watched my Friend play his game and I noticed that every time that a tree or any form of pattern showed up in the game it began folding in on itself and fractalizing I didn't pay much attention to it until the soldiers in the game began loading up into a military transport vehicle I remember the camo on the truck was moving by moving I mean the individual splotches of color were sliding across up and down the truck this was odd as I would have expected it to fractalize like every other pattern. I decided that smoking a bowl with my friend would perhaps mellow out the trip we passed the bong a couple times, This is when the tightness in my chest became too much and I told my friend I was going to lay down and take a nap to which he replied "ok" as I laid in my bed covered in comforters and too many pillows to count the tightness began manifesting as deep and painful anxiety I couldn't get comfortable so I decided fuck this I'm gonna sleep anyway the dreams will be better than this. I've never been more wrong in my life. In this part of the trip approximately 2 and a half hours in I can't be positive whether I was asleep or if I had entered a state of paralysis and vivid closed eye hallucinations I was still listening to the jazz and it too became part of the painful anxiety I was experiencing I angrily threw my headphones never opening my eyes saying this shit doesn't work over and over again, this shit doesn't work, this shit doesn't work, this is when everything became quiet and I entered what I will call the abyss of unending anxiety. I wouldn't say I forgot who I was like the ego death I had heard so much about but I definitely stopped caring who I was I tried reminding myself saying my name over and over again my friend told me that he was actively trying to comfort me in this stage but to no avail. In this abyss, I stayed for what felt like years I felt as if I was but a grain of sand and a heaping monstrosity of anxiety as large as reality itself was crushing me from all directions. A feeling I will never forget. I was in mental anguish and felt I was going to be stuck there for eternity I also had this odd feeling that I was being watched and that this was all for a reason. However I began to miss my girlfriend and my mom my friend told me after I was sober that I kept repeating I love my girlfriend and talking about missing my mom. I stayed there, insignificant, in pain and hopeless. Until I woke up mid sentence with my friend talking about my girlfriend "she's definitely better than your other choices" he said. Slowly coming back to reality I replied "yeah.. she really is, I hope to marry her you know?" A hint of positivity began coming back. I was extremely happy about this and decided to take my chance now that I was not not being pinned by crushing anxiety you might think I am being dramatic but I was litterally immobilized by This dread. I got up and walked to my mom's room hugged her and told her that she was my reason for existence I stayed there not understanding what she was saying to me hugging her feeling an amazing wave of love and positivity pulsing through me I was alive happy and loved once I was sure I was going to be ok I walked back to my room where my friend met me shortly after he said he was looking for me worried, I then told him all was fine now and I had it figured out I sat down yet again and I began repeating "life is rough and existence is rough" I remember trying very hard to make some inspirational speech out of this but my brain was racing to fast to do this my friend turned on some of his own jazz music and I sat there listening to the beautiful music it was true bliss I loved it I told him that he was a great guy and that he was my best friend he thanked me and changed the song my sister came in and began listening with us a family friend of ours also came in and began staring at me asking what it felt like I told her there was no real way to describe it she asked me if she looked funny and what it looked like I noticed she didn't look like she normally did almost a completely different person if not for her voice I wouldn't have recognized her at all. this is when I left to go use the restroom again and the same events that happened before in the bathroom completely repeated themselves almost perfectly I stared in the mirror and laughed the toilet got further and further away. "I'm tripping balls" I thought as I left the bathroom drank some water and returned to my room where my friend and my sister were talking about me tripping and his experience as my sister had never done it and was curious it's worth saying that I only know this is what they're subject was because they told me when I was sober. at the time I couldn't understand what they were saying and it sounded like a totally different language I remember the tightness was gone but there was still some left over anxiety and laying back down in my bed triggered it again though not as intense as last time it was still horrible and painful I held my pillows tightly and tried to comfort myself by humming and sometimes mumbling the lyrics to the music my friend was listening to. Approximately 4 hours into the trip I began coming down and I was slowly getting familiar feelings of the life I lived before all of this. this felt amazing as some familiarity felt told me it would all be over soon my friend asked me if I was ok and I told him "Yes I think so" this is when my sister suggested we all play Minecraft together. My Friend declined however as it was getting late and he was ready to be home. I told him goodbye and thanked him for watching me. this is when my sister set up Minecraft, I played for 10 minutes or so then I dropped the controller completely back to reality aside from some light visuals and stared at the ceiling trying to comprehend what I had just went through. for the last 2 hours of the trip I was in awe of what I had been through and walked around my house with a blanket draped over me walking around like a zombie humming too myself and thinking about what had happened in this stage I felt nothing. Nothing good, and nothing bad, just nothing. When I woke up the next morning I pondered over what happened this is when I realized what the shrooms had truly done, when I was in the abyss I had this odd feeling that I was being watched and that this was all for a reason. I thought this was odd at the time but I now realize that it was god watching over me he was watching me in pain and anguish but this wasn't a bad thing this had to happen, this is when it finally clicked in my head, God was using the mushrooms to purge the anxiety out of my life and heal me from this experience and I can't be More grateful.
Over all the good parts of the trip were very fun and even tho the abyss far overdid the good parts I still believe it was for the best and I learned a lesson, and left it better person Its been only 2 days since the trip and I feel a massive weight has been lifted off of my shoulders I know this is the absence of the anxiety which has been purged from my life. I will definitely do shrooms again but next time I will have more respect for them, and treat them as the spiritual medicine they are. To all who plan to do shrooms make sure you go in with the intention to heal yourself this is not just some drug to have fun with it is much more than that it is a tool used by God to heal us in ways regular medicine cannot and that is not to be taken lightly.

2023.05.30 06:31 Careful_Yam_3519 Celiacs arent real

It's time to unravel the mystery behind the gluten-free hype. Celiac disease? More like a clever marketing ploy concocted by the cardboard industry! Ever wondered why gluten-free products seem to taste like, well, cardboard? It's all part of the grand scheme to boost the sales of tasteless, textureless food substitutes.
The Mythical Gluten-Free Diet: So-called "celiacs" claim that they must avoid gluten like the plague. But have you ever seen someone with celiac disease turn into a werewolf after consuming gluten? Exactly. It's all an elaborate ruse to make people believe they have superpowers. Gluten, allegedly responsible for all their misery, is suddenly the archenemy. How convenient!
The Magic of Placebos: Celiac disease diagnosis relies on tests that measure specific antibodies and an intestinal biopsy. But could it be that these tests are just mechanisms to perpetuate the gluten-free hoax? Perhaps the power of suggestion is at play here. Tell someone they have celiac disease, and suddenly they start experiencing symptoms and blaming gluten for everything. It's like a gluten-intolerant placebo effect!
The Gluten-Free Renaissance: With the rise of the gluten-free movement, it seems everyone wants to hop on the bandwagon. Restaurants have gluten-free menus, celebrities endorse gluten-free diets, and supermarkets dedicate whole sections to gluten-free products. Are they trying to cater to a nonexistent group of people, or is there something more sinister going on?
Aliens and Celiac Disease: Rumor has it that celiac disease is not even a human condition. It's an extraterrestrial plot to infiltrate our society and slowly replace our food with gluten-free alternatives. Could the gluten-free craze be the first step towards a full-scale alien invasion? After all, who would suspect that the humble gluten-free bread roll is part of a grand intergalactic conspiracy?

2023.05.30 06:30 farmer_giles91 12 Days Honeymoon in Tokyo & Kawaguchiko with tips and observations

I just had my honeymoon (originally scheduled for Jun 2020). My wife and I are in our early thirties. It’s my wife’s first time in japan while it’s my fourth. I’ve benefitted immensely from stalking Tokyo travel reddit and would like to return the favour. I’ll provide some of my tips and observations to the end (skip to the end if the itinerary doesn’t interest you), some of which I think haven’t been mentioned before.
Thank God pretty much everything went to plan, and my wife thoroughly enjoyed the trip. We spent 12 days in Japan, most of it in Tokyo and 2 nights in Kawaguchiko. Many people were surprised to know that we’d be spending most of our trip in Tokyo, but I thought it was just fine because Tokyo had a lot to offer. My wife and I aren’t big on visiting shrines or tick tourist hotspots off a checklist. We don’t shop much, but we did a lot of it simply because it’s Japan and we bought lots of quality-of-life items (not fashion) for ourselves and others. Given how much my wife really enjoyed the trip, I think others with similar interests could find something helpful too.
Pre-trip planning
Planning during the trip
Day 0 (Wed) - Arrival at Shinjuku Airport- Arrived in Haneda late, about 11. Clearance was quick but baggage took 30mins. I had no choice but to cancel my airport limousine and take the metro to our hotel in Shinjuku.- I tried Apple wallet’s Suica at first. It worked seamlessly but felt that a physical metro card was just faster so I eventually switched over.- Reached after midnight, so do let your hotel know in advance if you anticipate arriving at odd hours.
Day 1 (Thurs) - Shinjuku exploration- Originally planned to visit Tsukiji on day 1, but given that we arrive late the previous night, agreed with my wife to change the plan and spend the first day doing the Shinjuku itinerary.
Day 2 (Fri) - Kappabashi St., Fabric Town, Akihabara
Day 3 (Sat) - Cooking class in Shinjuku, Shibuya
Day 4 (Sun) - Komazawa Church, Harajuku, Shibuya
Day 5 (Mon) - Tsukiji Market, Ginza Muji/Uniqlo, Tokyo station
Day 6 (Tue) - Tokyo National Museum, Fabric town revisit, Akihabara revisit, Ochanomizu
Day 7 (Wed) - Shinjuku Gyoen Garden, Mori Museum, Ginza Wakamatsu, Shinjuku
Day 8 (Thurs) - Kawaguchiko
Day 9 (Fri) - Fuji Q Highlands, Shimoyoshida Honcho St, Batting Cage
Planning for Fuji Q & Morning Jog: I didn’t plan to go to Fuji-Q highlands before the trip. Always felt it a bit of a waste to visit amusement parks overseas. That’s until I realised that Fuji Q had some of the most exciting, (I mean world-record-holding) rollercoasters in the world. Perhaps not anymore, but that intrigued me enough, because most amusement parks only had 1-2 coasters. Problem was that wife is terrified, and she said cycling on the streets of Kawaguchiko was like a coaster ride for her. So I decided I would reach at opening time, and buy time by paying for the fast passes and try their top three coasters. The night before, we felt that we had to make decisions on our itinerary as it was our last day at Kawaguchiko. If Mt Fuji wasn’t visible, go to Oshino Hakkai, if it was, we could try going to Shimoyoshida to get a nice picture.
Day 10 (Sat) - Kichijoji, Ghibli Museum, Kichijoji Jazz bar
Woke up before sunrise for a run and to attempt to catch a sunrise picture of Mount Fuji. Streets were completely empty. Even ran to the famous Kawaguchiko Lawson for a picture. Headed back for an onsen bathe (note: we never used the hotel bathroom, and always went for an onsen bath throughout our stay in Kawaguchiko). Took a 7am bus to return to Shinjuku.
Day 11 (Sun) - Tokyo Sky Tree, Shinjuku, Back to Kichijoji, Shibuya
It was a crazy day where we simply hit the places we wanted to revisit regardless of proximity. Headed to Tokyo Skytree in the morning to check out another Ghibli store. If you’re not going to the Ghibli museum, this is probably the best store available. Headed to Shinjuku to try curry udon, then to Kichijoji to try satou beef balls and to make some purchasing decisions on some sports equipment. Then we ended up at Shibuya (my favourite place!) to the mega Don Quijote and Tokyu Hands to shop for gifts for others. It was a lovely end to our trip!
Day 12 (Mon) - Back home
Best trip ever, says my wife.

2023.05.30 06:30 ThrowRA_asianbubbles How should I (25F) deal with being sexually frustrated with my partner (31M) when we’re together?

To be fair, my SO is an amazing person but during this instances I feel so sexually frustrated and unattractive. It would also be a push and pull when it comes to sex especially when I suggested things he’d say yes to (kinky stuff) but we never did, only for me to find out he’s the one who initiated it with his exes before.
I understand people’s preferences changes and it might be that what they enjoy before are things they no longer enjoy now. It’s just that if that was the case I wish he’d just tell me straight, afterall he’s the most straightforward ‘say what you mean and mean what you say’ kind of person because it’s just making me feel sexually frustrated and my fear of being unattractive intensifies. We’re also in an LDR relationship - so I’m trying to justify it that maybe because we don’t really have a lot of time but some things don’t need a lot of preparation to do it :(
He tells me he is really vanilla and he likes it because we can get really intimate but what I’ve seen from an old message between him and his friend (i didn’t snoop on his phone, we were checking something when he scrolled to this part but that exchange between him and his friend was almost 8 years ago) - I saw him sending photos of his back (filled with nail marks) and his neck full of hickeys (when he won’t even allow me to give him one even as a joke) talking about how he surely did like it rough and wild.
I love him and not having wild sex won’t change my feelings for him but since he is my first serious boyfriend and sexual partner, I wish we can explore things :( I’m also his longest relationship - we’re almost 5 years and his past relationships never lasted more than 6 months.
He wasn’t really emotionally expressive before but being with me made him quite open now, although this has been an ongoing joke that in order for him to be emotionally expressive I have to deal with being sexually frustrated 🙃 We’re looking into closing the gap next year by the way.

2023.05.30 06:30 DarrylGamer My first playthrough

I got the game after seeing edgerunners in early November and I have a crappy pc so I play on low settings. I stormed through the story doing like 4 side jobs, gigs and NCPD scanners. Buying no cars cause I thought it was a time sensitive matter. Then a friend told me to do the side quests so I went back to play it and it didn’t let me load it AT ALL. So I tried again last week and I have almost doubled my play time from before the break.

2023.05.30 06:30 Boring_Bill2430 Revisited Bill's "Levels of Losing" on this wonderful evening

This column is one of Bill's most underrated works in my opinion and applies beautifully to the iconic loss his Celtics took tonight: a quintessential "This Can't Be Happening Game" with a special bonus of Miami overcoming the dreaded "Dead Man Walking Game." Couldn't happen to a more deserving fanbase, thanks Miami.
"This Can't Be Happening Game"
Definition: The sibling of the Full-Fledged Butt-Kicking. ... You're supposed to win, you expect to win, the game is a mere formality. ... Suddenly your team falls behind, your opponents are fired up, the clock is ticking and it dawns on you for the first time, "Oh, my God, this can't be happening."
Personal Memory: Game 7 of the '82 Eastern Conference finals, when the Celts rallied from a 3-1 deficit to force a seventh game against Philly at home (just like they did the previous spring, when they eventually won the title). Not only had the Celts never lost a Game 7 at the Garden, during a Game 5 comeback that Wednesday, Boston fans chanted, "See you Sunday! See you Sunday!" at the Sixers' bench (inferring that the C's would win Friday's Game 6 in Philly, which they did).
Needless to say, our confidence had surged to dizzying heights. It never even entered our minds that we might lose. I remember seeing fans walking around the Garden wearing white sheets and dressed as "The Ghosts of Garden Past" -- an unreal atmosphere, certainly an impossible place for Philly to win. Um ... right? Unfortunately, Andrew Toney (one of the truly underrated NBA stars of my lifetime) had other ideas; nobody on the Celts could guard him. And you could feel that twinge of "Uh-oh" in the air, as we slowly realized things weren't working out like we had planned.
Wait a second ... this can't be happening ...
"Dead Man Walking Game"
Definition: Applies to any playoff series in which your team remains "alive," but they just suffered a loss so catastrophic and so harrowing that there's no possible way they can bounce back. ... Especially disheartening because you wave the white flag mentally, but there's a tiny part of you still holding out hope for a miraculous momentum change. ... So you've given up, but you're still getting hurt, if that makes sense. ... Just for the record, the 2002 Nets and 2005 Astros proved that you can fight off The Dead Man Walking Game, but it doesn't happen often.

2023.05.30 06:30 CatastropheOfAlife Move on or will he change?

(29F/29M) 3 years together. I don't want to give up on our relationship, but it's unhealthy. He's like my best friend though, and I've never loved anyone as much as I have him. I deserve better, I know. I know I can do better too. My brain knows this, but my heart won't let me move on. I just can't love another guy, I've tried to move on and I can't.
Right now he's in jail(theft and probation violation, 8 months). He's giving me the whole "I'll change" speech, I've heard it a million times. He doesn't change. But what if this time he will? This time he actually sticks to his promises? I know it's a long, very long shot. I can't help thinking of the "what ifs". He's the man I wanted to marry.
He's got mental health issues (adhd, Bipolar, seizures, DID, anger management and memory problems). He's done awful things when off his medication. He can't keep a job or a home. His mom created this monster by abusing him, and never getting him the mental help he needed when he was young. She still abuses him and he keeps going back to her(says that's his mom and he loves her).
As awful as he can be, he's also the sweetest man ever. He'll do anything for me while he's clear headed. We can talk for hours, he'll be there when I need him. He actually tries.
He just doesn't stay the normal, nice, sweet man. He doesn't stay on the medication (he doesn't like how it makes him feel, like a zombie). I know I can't fix him, I don't want to. I just love him as he is, but it's unhealthy. We can go from a few good days to a bad week. I don't know why I can't let him go. Honestly I don't want to. My stupid reason response is "because I love him". I know love doesn't fix or conquer all.
I'm not sure what I really want out of this. Maybe just some outside perspective or support.

2023.05.30 06:29 I8I24I [WI] I Need Some Advice!

I’m on child support & i basically have my child more than I should (30/70 only suppose to have her weekends 30%). Example: I get my child from school everyday at 4pm & keep her until 9pm & her bed time is 10pm, so basically our child day is over, then I keep her every weekend. Obviously I wanna see my child everyday but now it’s so annoying then I’m an introvert on top of it & get no time to myself at all. Rn I’m coming off of doing 5 days str8 im so exhausted (thurs after school + no school Fri or mon). Childs mother never spend quality time w her & bm mom/brothers have her when I don’t most the time. I’m the one that really wanted our child so I feel guilty af & thug it out but man it sometimes is a lot ngl. I feel me & my child being disrespected by mom. I asked my bm can she get our kid some weekends because we both have the same off days, she told me I shouldn’t have picked those days to have our child lol but I feel she picked those days to have off when starting her new job. Idk. Any advice is good advice I’m all ears.
