I'm a college student in Manila. Taking up a very stressful program 😅
I would like to ask if what sports I can play on the weekend just to release some stress? I play badminton and darts but I don't know where to play and I don't have a playmate as well. I'm also interested in swimming and tennis lessons but I'm not familiar here in Manila where to enroll. If you have any idea can you tell how much it is? TIA! :)

2023.05.30 00:53 Proletlariet Slayer

Respect Slayer

Slayer: "Very nicely done. You haven't forgotten your manners, I see."

Zato=1: "Naturally. One: No matter how grim the situation, eliminating the target comes before all else; even preserving one's own life. Two: One must hone their skills so that killing comes as naturally as breathing. Three: It is not will, nor pride, nor victory, nor death that truly decides a battle, nor is it the ability to manipulate or dominate others. The most important thing in life is, of course..."

Both: "Dandyism."

Themes: XX Xrd
Slayer is the last of a race of immortal vampires who, long past his adventurous days, enjoys spending quality time with his wife and quietly roaming the world. A charming and refined gentleman, Slayer is an extremely powerful fighter who enjoys passively observing the goings-on of mankind and occasionally "meddling" in others' affairs, often offering advice to all the other characters. Above all, Slayer pursues a life of dandyism, leading a refined and leisurely life of casual luxury and an adherence to stringent standards of class.
In the 1990s, Slayer formed the Assassin's Guild, initially to supply him with a regular stream of fresh blood, but also to punish those that the law couldn't reach. Upon meeting his similarly-immortal wife Sharon, however, Slayer grew disinterested with the Guild and stepped away from it, creating a vacuum of power wherein Zato=1 was able to take over. By the time Guilty Gear XX rolled around, Slayer was roaming the world, seeking to fight enemies and allies alike one last time before he retired and left reality entirely to he with the rest of his kind. In some arcade endings he rekindles his love of combat and starts a new Guild, but this is generally non-canon.
Though he has a number of vampiric abilities and his millenia of experience could lend to expertise on a weapon, Slayer enjoys fighting with his fists and raw strength. Despite this relative handicap in a world of blades and magic, Slayer is far and away one of the strongest characters in the entire franchise and is rarely seen struggling, let alone being meaningfully stressed in a fight. Although he is occasionally frustrated by the lack of challenge others are capable of presenting him with, he is ever graceful to those with whom he fights, offering them congratulations for a good performance.
Signature Moves
Special Moves
  • Mappa Hunch - Slayer charges forward with a powerful punch. In Accent Core, Slayer can also feint with this move.
  • Bloodsucking Universe - Slayer takes a bite out of his opponent, stealing their health.
  • Dandy Step - Slayer sways backward and forward suddenly. Dandy Step has a number of powerful follow-up attacks to catch opponents who try to retaliate.
  • Footloose Journey - Slayer uses his shapeshifting cape to attack in the air.
  • Undertow - Slayer swells his arms with blood and claws downwards in a heavy swing.
Overdrives / Force Breaks
  • Dead On Time - Slayer flies across the screen with a devastating punch.
  • Eternal Wings - Slayer ascends upwards suddenly, catching his opponent with the force of his jump.
  • Straight Down Dandy - Slayer suddenly dives out of the air past his opponent.
Instant Kills
As Instant Kill animations are potentially canon, I'll include them as feats but will mark them where appropriate.
Mouse over a feat to see its source. Non-Canon story feats are included for completion's sake, but will be marked to tell them apart.
Please note that due to the difficulty of tracking down quality translated sources for some of the older games and media, many of these clips will be presented in the form of fan-translated scripts. Other sources (like the light novels) may be missing entirely, as they have never been translated and I can't read Japanese.
It's also worth noting that Slayer has never been seen actually going all-out, so none of this RT should be considered his top end capabilities.

2023.05.30 00:28 loxleyxoxo highs & lows

dear digital diary,
i don't expect anyone to read any of my posts, and wouldn't mind if nobody did. but on the off chance that someone else in the world can resonate, i'll put it all out there.
there's this one episode from a show called modern love that i really resonate with. it's the one with anne hathaway, her character's bipolar, but the parts in her life that i see in my own life in are her really high-highs and really low-lows. she's a different person when she's manic; similar to the double-life-feeling i kind of explained in my first entry. on her high days, she's productive, euphoric, in a great mood, and finding every reason to love life. on her low days, she doesn't get out of bed for days, she's cranky, motivation-less, and for lack of better words; a bitch. i felt like the episode was screaming, "hello? yeah, this is you!" at me. don't get me wrong, i truly don't think i'm bipolar, but i have all consuming highs and all consuming lows with this eating cycle that i've created for myself.
i've been in downward spiral the past few days, but today i emerged from my dark hole and got myself back onto a high. i woke up, deep cleaned my apartment and bedroom, went to the grocery store and stocked up on all of my safe foods that i'd need throughout the week, and picked up all of my packages that were collecting dust from my motivation-less days... the thing is, i always think the high will last. i always try to make them last as long as possible. in my paper journal, i keep a 'streak' of my productive days. when they end, i don't write until they've begun again. i think i only operate with a strict routine. one thing throws off the routine... it's a free for all. we know how that looks. excessive binge eating, messy room, a tower of laundry, neglecting obligations, depriving myself of a shower or anything productive at all, really.
so how can i keep this high and also include life obstacles? for one, i can't always rely on my one meal at dinner time. i've noticed this is one of the factors that stops me from living. if a friend asks me to do something that night and it compromises my eating window, then it's a 'no thanks!' from me. and that sucks. so i'm going to integrate a new plan that still aligns with my shitty-eating-habit mindset.
on the days that are normal, no plans, etc:
totaling about 280 calories
on the days that i have plans that evening:
totaling about 285 calories
and of course, chugging lemon water before every meal. i weighed 115.0 lbs today. i was scared to weigh, but it wasn't as bad as i thought it'd be. strange how that stupid little scale dictates how i'll feel about myself each day. i also keep an excel spreadsheet of all of my daily habits including how many steps i've taken, how many calories i've consumed, the amount of calories burned, if i've worked that day, moods, chores and errands, etc. i thought it would help my analyze my life better, but so far it's just been a fun little activity for me every morning. probably because i never stick to filling it in longer than 5 days. i'm trying to change that. so as you can tell, i'm a chronic planner. it makes me happy for whatever reason... probably because not having a set schedule for every moment of my day leads to going off the rails. alright, it's almost 6:30 pm so i'll go make my dinner.
i'll update again soon,
loxley xoxo

2023.05.30 00:12 notafrog20 Reading section help??

The reading section of the SAT has always been my worst section. I have practiced a lot through Khan Academy, but haven't managed to improve this part much. I always get anywhere from 38-42 questions right when I take practice tests. However, by practicing my math skills, I got my score from a projected 1250 or so to a 1410. I went into my first test confident that I would score above 1400.
When I began the test, though, I flipped back and forth between the questions and passages and forgot what I just read every time I turned the page. I would see the question, read a section of the passage, turn back to answer it, and then blank out. I couldn't focus no matter how hard I tried. Strangely enough, on the grammar section, the widely spaced text helped me to focus through the passages. I got a 42/44 on the grammar, but a 34/52 on the reading. This cost me the 60 points I needed to get to a 1400 (1340 total).
Does anyone have advice on how to focus through the reading passages? Thank you! :)

2023.05.29 23:43 anon134574284 Will I make it to 40

I’m not suicidal, I am burnt out, But I just have a feeling I’m not going to make it past 40.
Maybe it’ll be the cigarettes, tiredness behind the wheel, something sudden, or not
And I do believe in a God. ( my beliefs, doesn’t have to be anyone else’s.) I just feel as though I wasn’t meant to be here for a long time, like, I’ve been fateful to live a short and sweet life.
Im grateful for my life, although there was a time I wasn’t, I’m grateful for the small things, climbing a hill, and watching the world from a height, sunsets, the moon, stars and anything universe, nature related, the birds, bees, dogs, cats, cows, everything.
Seeing a person smile when I compliment their necklace, or telling someone to have a good day and getting a “you too”. Seeing people around me succeed and have goals, aspirations.
Playing piano and writing poems, feeling the sun on my face, and the rain, watching the stars in the night sky - I’ve said it twice because it’s one of my favourite past times, falling asleep and waking up slow, listening to the rain on a rooftop, people watching, painting, reading, watching the same tv and movies over and over again trying to emulate the feeling I got the first time, remembering memories, reading our old texts, all of it.
I do love life, I’m grateful for it. But I think I’ll be content if I reach 39, I don’t care to grow old and see wrinkles form on my face as my hair goes grey, I want to experience life for everyday and the extraordinary, the everyday beautiful.
But short and sweet, I think that’s what I’ll be, and I’m not sad, I’m trying to feel content. I don’t want to be selfish as I know many would love to have more time, I just have an incling, my plan until 40, maybe it’s a way to ensure I enjoy everything now. I’m not too sure

The Brother and Sister

The Brother and Sister
The Native American Story of the Brother and Sister
(( This story of the Brother and Sister is featured in the book entitled the Red Indian Fairy Book by Frances Jenkins Olcott published in Boston, New York by Houghton Mifflin Company in 1917 ))
An Arapaho Story

The Story of the Brother and Sister
There were three streams all flowing east, and near them a tribe of Indians was camping.
A brother and sister were playing at a distance from the camp, and a Chief passed by them. The children called him saucy names and he was very angry.
Going to the camp he bade all the people pack up, and move to another camping-ground. Before moving away, the people took the two children who had been saucy to the Chief, and tied them each to a pole.
They leaned the poles against some trees, and leaving the children to die, they took their goods, and went to another place.
Well, the poor children suffered hunger and thirst, and wept bitterly.
At last an old Wolf, the Chief of all the Wolves, saw them, and he said to himself,
"How pitiful these children are!"
Then he cried out to the pack, "Come, all ye Wolves, from all directions!"
In a minute Wolves and Coyotes came running from every part of the Earth, and the old Wolf said to them:—
"I pity these children.
Seize the poles and lower them slowly.
Then chew off the ropes and free the children."
The Wolves and the Coyotes did as he told them to do, and loosed the children.
But when the boy and girl saw all the wild animals running about them, they were terribly frightened, for they thought that they would surely be eaten.
But the old Wolf said:—
"Do not be afraid! Stay with us, and we will care for you."
After that he called four big Wolves from the pack, and said:
"You, Clouded Wolf, who are above all others in daring deeds, provide food for this boy and girl.
White Wolf, I want you also to look for food for them.
Black Coyote, go out and find meat.
And you also, Black Wolf, who are brave and cunning, provide meat for them."
Immediately the four big Wolves ran away, and soon came back laden with the best parts of a Buffalo; and piled all the meat in front of the children.
The brother and sister ate, and were made strong again.
Then the old Wolf told them to go into the timber near by, and live there; and he said that he would stay with them.
It was now Winter.
The boy got together some poles and made a frame for a brush house; while his sister gathered long reeds, and with them thatched the house.
She made a door of brush and sticks, and inside she put brush for two beds.
They then made a nice comfortable bed near the door where the old Wolf might sleep.
When the house was finished, it began to snow.
They all went in, and the old Wolf said,
"I am feeble, and suffer much from cold.
I have no strength, no swiftness, no warmth.
If it were not for your kindness I should be out in the snow.
Therefore I thank you for letting me live with you in this comfortable house."
So that night the Wolf slept by the door, the girl slept on the north side of the house, and the boy at the back.
Well, in the morning the boy was the first to get up to make the fire; and he looked out, and the snow was over all the land.
And what was his surprise to see great herds of Elk near by.
The whole snow was yellow with them as far as he could see.
In the timber, on the banks of the rivers, and everywhere, the Elk were standing, walking, or lying down.
The boy shut the door quickly, and said to his sister, "Get up!
There are herds of Elk close by."
"Why should I get up?" said she; "I can't do anything."
But the boy answered, "Just get up and look at them anyway."
"I can't do anything by looking at them," said she.
"My Grandchild," called the old Wolf, "get up and look at the Elk."
So she rose, and opened the door; and as soon as she looked at an Elk, it fell down dead. Then she gave her brother a flint knife with a bone handle, and he ran out into the snow, and skinned the Elk as easily as if he had always known how to do it.
As soon as he had skinned the animal, he threw its hide into the house, and the girl folded it three times, and sat on it.
Immediately the hide became a soft and beautiful skin, all dressed ready for use.
Then the girl looked at more Elk, and they fell down dead; and the boy skinned them; and so she did until they had thirty-six skins.
They next sliced the meat, and hung it to dry on the trees near the three streams.
After that the girl took some of the thirty-six skins, and piling them one on the other, she sat on them, saying,
"I wish that all these skins may be sewed together for a tent."
And when she got up, and spread them out, they had become a tent with a bird ornament on top, and four round ornaments on the sides, and rattles over the door.
Then the girl said, "I wish for twenty-nine straight tent poles."
And when she went outside, there were the tent poles made of otter-weeds. Soon the tent stood covered, and was very handsome.
Then the girl folded three skins, and sat on them, saying,
"I wish for a wall-hanging embroidered with Porcupine quills of every colour."
And it was so, for when she got up the Elk skins were changed into a beautiful hanging, which she fastened behind her brother's bed.
Then she folded three more skins, and sat on them, and wished for an embroidered hanging for her bed, and she got it.
After that she did the same to more skins, and wished for an embroidered and ornamented blanket, and she gave that to the old Wolf.
Well, after seven days it snowed again, and when the boy got up to make the fire, he looked out and saw the snow over all the land.
And what was his surprise to see great herds of Buffalo near by.
The whole snow was black with them.
He waked his sister, and bade her get up, but she said:
"What can I do? You have broken my sleep. Let me sleep longer."
"My Grandchild," called the old Wolf, "get up and look at the Buffalo."
So she rose, and opened the door, and as soon as she looked at some of the Buffalo, they fell down dead.
The boy skinned the animals, and brought in their hides.
The girl took one, and folded it three times, saying,
"I wish this to become a robe with bird ornaments."
Then it became an embroidered robe, and she gave it to her brother.
Then she took another skin and did the same, saying,
"I wish this to be a painted robe for myself."
And it turned into a robe; and when she spread it out the painting was seen bright and beautiful.
Then she took another skin, and, in the same manner, made it a robe with red and yellow embroidery at the four corners, and eight lines of embroidery across it, and between them black lines painted with charcoal.
This she gave to the old Wolf.
After that she made three pillows for the beds.
On the one for her brother was the picture of an animal embroidered in yellow quills.
The eye was dark with yellow quills around it.
On the throat were a hundred bars of yellow quills.
The ear was a yellow cross of quill-work.
The head was round, and the tail and nose were bars of yellow quills. All around the edge of the pillow were fifty bars of yellow quills.
The pillow for the girl was white, embroidered with an animal made of black and white bars of quill-work; while the pillow for the old Wolf was very beautiful, embroidered with red and yellow quills.
Well, after seven days it snowed again, and when the boy got up in the morning to make the fire, he looked out and saw the snow covering the land.
And what was his surprise to see more herds of Elk near by.
The snow was yellow with them.
He called his sister, and the old Wolf bade her rise and look at the animals, and she did. Immediately some of them fell down dead.
Then as before, the girl folded, and sat on their skins, and wished for a fine hunting-shirt for her brother, embroidered in circles of red and yellow quills, with fringes along the edge, and tufts of long hair hanging between the fringes.
Then she wished for leggings for him, and a pair of moccasins embroidered with birds.
For herself she wished for a woman's dress handsomely embroidered, and with four rows of fringes, also for leggings and moccasins.
As the old Wolf could not wear clothes, she of course did not wish for any garment for him.
Then the boy said, "I wish I could have for a Dog a Panther of yellow colour with white sides."
His sister went outside the tent, and called, "Come, Panther of yellow colour with white sides!"
And immediately the Panther came walking through the timber, slowly twisting his tail.
He entered the tent, and lay down by the boy, and put his head on the boy's knee.
Then the boy said, "I wish you could have for a Dog a Bear with white streaks down his fore legs, and whose claws are white with black streaks."
So his sister went outside the tent, and called,
"Come, Bear with white streaks down your fore legs, and with claws white with black streaks."
And immediately the Bear came pacing through the timber, and sat down at the foot of the girl's bed.
After that the brother and sister lived very happily with the old Wolf, the Panther, and the Bear.
They had plenty to eat, for the dried meat was piled up before the door of the tent, and there was meat still hanging from the trees.
One day two Indians from the tribe that had deserted the children, happened to be hunting by the streams, and they saw the handsome tent in the timber.
They went toward it, and, lo, there were the boy and girl beautifully dressed; while on one side of the tent sat the Panther, and on the other side the Bear, and the old Wolf was lying just in front of the door.
Well, when the animals saw the men, the old Wolf rose up growling, the Panther crouched to spring, and the Bear stiffened his hair.
The men were very much frightened, but the boy told the animals to lie down, and he invited the men into the tent.
The girl bade them be seated, and gave them pemmican in wooden bowls.
Now the men saw the wonderful tent and all its fine furnishings, and they looked at the great pile of dried meat before the door, and said to the children that they would return at once to the tribe, and tell the people to come and see them.
But the girl said that if they came, they must camp down by the streams, and not approach the tent, or the animals would kill them.
So the men went back to the people, and the tribe came to the streams, and made their camp.
And though they could see the beautiful tent in the distance, they dared not approach it for fear of the animals.
But the brother and sister gave some of their meat to the people, and after that the two continued to live happily in their tent, guarded by the faithful old Wolf, the Panther, and the Bear.

2023.05.29 22:57 Literate_Elaborate [M4F] Seeking a longterm partner to roleplay with

Greetings, stranger!
I see you've stumbled upon my post. I believe you're looking for a partner as well. I'll introduce myself then. I'm a 22 years-old college student with some free time to kill. Passionate about books, mostly fantasy and post-apocalyptic genres. I have some writing experience, but I'd classify myself as a semi-lit; I'll try my best to match your writing. I'm capable of responding several times a week, so I'd love you to be somewhat active too. As for the rest, less important stuff: main platform is Discrod, 3rd person past tense, time zone CET and I don't do fandoms.
I'm looking for someone that is:
I already have a few well-established RPs ongoing, so I'll be more picky this time. I'll only respond to messages that have some effort put into them. I like my future partner to be communicative, as stated before, so give me at least a brief introduction of yourself.
As for the plot, I don't have any specific ideas for now. If you have something up your sleeve, you're more than welcomed to bring your ideas to the table. I thought of a fantasy settled world with some romance slapped on top of it, but I'm open for any other mixes. We can brainstorm some ideas together, create a suitable world for both of us and get into details.
Hope my not-so-well written post caught your attention nonetheless. If you're interested in beginning a hopefully amazing journey with me, drop me a message in PM. Looking forward to hearing from you!

2023.05.29 21:32 Tig2468 Aggressive Female Cat, advice needed

In November 2022 we rescued our cat from a family friend who no longer wanted her, she was constantly left outside and never allowed in, She has been spayed after having a litter of kittens a few years ago. Since she's lived with us she has never been interested to go outside untill recently but kept herself to our garden. This evening she ventured over into another garden and came into contact with another cat, we heard the cry of the other cat, and saw that ours was not letting the poor cat get away 😢 untill she heard her food bowl. Is there anyway that we can stop her being like this? We don't want to have to keep her in considering she's only just started to show interest in the outdoors. She lives with two dogs and gets on really well with them. They clean her, play with her and sometimes she sleeps in their bed with them. We've never seen an aggressive side since now. Any advice Please?

2023.05.29 21:05 Betty-Adams Humans are Weird – Biscuits Recipes

Humans are Weird – Biscuits Recipes

Original Post:
Embracesgladly was carefully maintaining her grip on Human Friend Maria as they moved down the corridor of the dry cave system. The lights pained on the ceiling to provide a near surface level of luminosity were just turning orange as somewhere, und upon und of solid rock above them the barren surface of the planet turned away from its harsh, near star. Again the human’s hormone profile changed, grew past the point on the gradient the Undulate had learned to recognize. Mindfully Embracesgladly loosed a gripping appendage to ‘pat’ Human Friend Maria’s main gripping appendage. Human Friend Maria returned the gesture by applying gentle pressure with the full area of her gripping surface to where it cradled Embracesgladly’s mass. Human Friend Maria’s massive central atmosphere pumps took on a more mechanical rhythm as she shifted from passive to active control of her oxygen exchange and by the time they had reached Human Friend Maria’s habsuite, carved into the glittering granite of the world, the human’s pheromone gradient had begun to shift back into a less abnormal range. The massive mammal paused in front of her door and drew in a deep breath. “See you tomorrow eh Hugs?” Human Friend Maria said, her voice still sounding a bit weak as it rumbled out of her chest and though the air. “Unless you would like a sleeping companion,” Embracesgladly offered. Human Friend Maria’s fibers stiffened and her stripes flushed with various emotions. Embracesgladly was pained to note that there wasn’t a little offense in the mix and when Human Friend Maria spoke her voice was carefully controlled into recognizably cheerful tones. “No! I’m good. You shuffle on back to your habsuite.” “Very well!” Embracesgladly tried to put as much cheer in her own voice. “If you need anything in the night remember your door is right beside the waterlock!” She made a broad gesture down at the shimmering blue hatch and scrambled down Human Friend Maria’s side when the human’s usually powerful arms went limp and released her. The human maintained her stiff, upright posture until her door had opened and the massive mammal disappeared though it. However Embracesgladly felt the thump of the human slumping against the wall before dragging her massive bipedal frame towards the human sized hydration pool. That was one perk of this world, Embracesgladly mused. There was always plentiful water of the temperature the humans thrived in. She slipped down into the wet corridor and swam slowly towards the medical pod. She pulled herself up into the rapidly darkening medical bay and spread her appendages to get her bearings. Human Friend John lay on one of the human slabs, emitting a rhythmic sound. The absolutely massive – even for a human – mammal had been complaining of sleep issues and was no doubt here to make sure he wasn’t suffocating in the night as (supposedly) many humans did. However he was soundly asleep by the dim glow of his stripes and the bases chief medic was quietly sorting expired medical patches by an Undulate sized soaking tank the humans kept about two unds above the floor to decontaminate their hands. “Swim over!” Medic Lurchesover waved to her. Embracesgladly came to him and started helping with the sorting. “How goes your personal assignment?” he asked with his dorsal appendages even as he ventral appendages continued to sort. “It is working,” Embracesgladly responded slowly. “I do feel that I am doing her good.” “Despite her best efforts?” Medic Lurchesover prodded gently. “She is participating as best she can,” Embracesgladly replied quickly. “But she does resent needing help.” “Can you sound that that is actually a common human reaction?” Medic Lurchesover demanded with a particularly wide gesture of his dorsal appendages. “It does not seem to flow with reality,” Embracesgladly admitted as she felt the surface of a questionable patch. “I just am trying to swim towards my best efforts.” For several companionable moments they sorted the patches while Medic Lurchesover mulled over her half request-half observation. Finally he set down his patches. “Have you attention-attention-attention indefinitely?” he asked, emitting a rippling overtone along with the gestures. Embracesgladly set down her own patches and absorbed his meaning in stillness for several moments. “I am sorry,” she finally said. “I simply cannot sound how repeated attention touches is anything but a petty annoyance? Are you suggesting I overwhelm her biochemistry induces paranoia with genuine irritation adrenaline?” Medic Lurchesover rippled with amused understanding. “It is very confusing to us, I sound,” he gestured in soothing swoops. “You are wise to not simply try it on an emotionally compromised patient.” “She is my friend, not my patient,” Embracesgladly corrected him. “I have no medical training.” “Well!” Medic Lurchesover stated as he resumed his sorting. “Why don’t you go try it out on Human Friend John and see how he responds? That should clear the waters!” Embracesgently waved a speculative appendage cluster in the direction of the massive human who had shifted from a rhythmic to a stuttering and gurgling sound profile. “I am not a medic,” she gestured slowly, “but are there not issues of consent?” “Oh, John waived all those consent bits to help with the training,” Medic Lurchesover replied as he dropped a torn patch into the waste bin. “Isn’t he in the middle of a medical test?” she pressed. “That he failed hours ago,” Medic Lurchesover said. “You’ll be doing him a favor if you wake him. Remember to do the sound now.” Embracesgently wasn’t quite firm in the strokes of the thing, but waiving his medical consent to save time and help out did seem like something Human Friend John would do, even if it was, rather especially if it was of questionable legality. So she shuffled across to his slab and with some effort climbed up beside him. “You need to be on a flat surface,” Medic Lurchesover gestured. “Chest, back, or lap.” She obediently climbed up on Human Friend John’s wide ribcage, noting again the dark irregularities of scars that intersected his stripes at odd angles. “Like this?” she asked as she began gently tapping out the words for attention on the central bony structure that supported his internal frame. “Slower, and don’t forget the sound,” Medic Lurchesover instructed. Embracesgently slowed her gestured and tried to mimic the sound Medic Lurchesover had been making. It was rather difficult, especially out of water, though she found that if she pulsed the waves from her own surface down into the cavity of Human Friend John’s chest she got better results. As she expected Human Friend John woke at the attention. The sounds he was making cut off with a gurgle and his lights brightened as his eyelids flickered open. He spent several long moments blinking as his bifocal eyes brought the Undulate on his chest into resolution. Embracesgently continued the supposed soothing method, and despite Medic Lurchesover’s assurance was surprised to see the humans colors rippled as his tension dropped. His face finally stretched into a grin and one massive gripping appendage came up and patted Embracesgently in a soothing human greeting. “Daw!” the human rumbled out. “Someone’s makin biscuits!” His face split open in a cavernous yawn and he slumped back, now with contented light radiating out from his stripes. Embracesgently continued her actions until the dimming of his lights showed he was deeply asleep and then eased off the human and his slab. Medic Lurchesover looked rather smug from the set of his appendages but she could afford to be generous. If Human Friend Maria responded to the odd comfort gesture even an appendage as well as Human Friend John did they should begin the very next morning. Still one question was tickling her lagging appendages. “What are biscuits?” she asked Medic Lurchesover, “and how does this gesture resemble making them?”

2023.05.29 20:31 AlbanianKek Do recent graduates usually move to find the right job?

I just graduated with my BBA and I’m pretty lost as to what to do. I work at a commercial property management company making $20 with no benefits. So I’m looking for something better and not really sure what direction to go in. I live in Northern Idaho and there’s not many good job prospects tbh. I feel like I may need to move at least to neighboring Spokane, perhaps even farther. What would you guys do if you were me?

2023.05.29 20:24 Emergency-Swan-3006 Wedding Guests…

Hey friends,
I got married nearly a year ago and the stress of wedding guests has really left me so sad. Obviously you can only invite so many people which is shared with your partners friends and family numbers - there are people that don’t talk to me anymore because I couldn’t invite them. With them I kinda feel like if they don’t understand then they weren’t great friends anyway. Then there were the friends that said they were coming, ordered food and just didn’t show up…. No apology, no communication and then haven’t spoken to us since… I’m talking like supposedly best friends. Obviously if I knew that, I could have invited other people who did want to come. I don’t feel that’s it my duty to reach out to them and that they should have made the first move yet now it’s been nearly a year, no word and we are a fair few friends down. What would you do? It’s broken my heart to be honest and tainted what should be the best time of my life.

2023.05.29 20:22 HealthisWhealth Welcome! What this subreddit is all about

I made this subreddit for believers and followers of Christ who are interested in learning Biblical wisdom in order to improve their finances and ultimately be wealthy in order to serve your loved ones.
I believe being a Christian isn't just about attending church and praying. Those are very essential but the reality is that next to God and family, money is the most important thing in this world in order to not only survive, but to live a fulfilling life.
Let's build wealth in a moral and Biblical way to honor God!

2023.05.29 19:26 IZombiii Suspicious actives

Hello, I got a messages that I had suspicious activities on my profile but I'm a bit confuse. I know that repeated action can count a bot-like behavior but the only thing I did in a short amount of time (in like a span of a couple of weeks) is: reporting and blocking scam accounts.
Can reporting in a short amount of time count as bot-like/suspicious behavior?

2023.05.29 18:57 makeupandgeckos Help with sensitive babies? (Variegated alocasia frydek ad Thai constellation)

So I spent some money on a couple baby dream plants. My variegated alocasia frydek is a very small starter with 2 leaves in a 2 inch pot. I have the soil as pon mixed with regular soil and I have used "thrive" with watering. It sprouted 2 leaves and both new leaves ended up dying but it's 2 original leaves are still fine. I mist it and keep a dome on it most of the time to keep the humidity up and I don't water too much but I'm worried the new leaves will keep dying.
My Thai con is a tiny bit bigger but still in a 2 inch pot. 2 leaves and no new growth. This one is in pon, leca, a bit of soil, and orchid bark. Not watering too much and I had to move it over to a clear pot initially to watch the roots which it didn't like apparently because parts of the roots already rotted. I added some thrive to that one as well and try not to water too much at all.
Any pro tips on getting these to start growing some? Should I change anything in the soil or add more vitamins etc? I spent a good amount so I'll be devastated if they don't start growing and doing well 🥲

2023.05.29 18:49 elssdv Hejne bottle rack with the wide shelf?

Hi all,
I just bought the hejne shelf and I was looking to add the bottle rack they are selling of this same series. However, I'm not sure if the bottle rack fits with my model. I have the large one, so with the broad shelves. I'm from the Netherlands and I see that not all countries sell this bottle rack. Hope someone can help me.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt sells 50 million copies, entire series sells 75 million copies

CD Projekt has just confirmed a great score for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. The company is preparing to premiere the first story expansion for Cyberpunk 2077, but it turns out that Geralt's third adventure is still showing great results.
CD Projekt has released Q1 2023 results, but by far the most important news from the company is new results for games from the universe created by Andrzej Sapkowski.
Players around the world have already purchased over 50 million copies of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. If you add The Witcher and The Witcher 2 to that, CD Projekt RED can confirm sales of over 75 million games.
If you add to this the first two parts of Geralt's adventures, the entire trilogy has sold over 75 million copies. We are very pleased with the strength of this franchise, especially in the context of future projects in the Witcher universe,” says Adam Kiczynski, CEO of CD PROJEKT.
Piotr Nelyubovitch confirmed that " Based on publicly available data, The Witcher 3 is now one of the top 10 best-selling video games in history ."
CD Projekt also reported that in the first quarter of 2023, its revenue was PLN 175 million and its consolidated net income was PLN 70 million.
As in previous periods, Cyberpunk 2077 had the largest share in sales. The Witcher 3, whose edition for the latest generation of consoles was released in December 2022, also showed a good quarter, said Piotr Nelyubovich, CD PROJEKT Vice President of Finance

2023.05.29 18:45 Unlucky-Ease-2140 verbally abusive partner who always breaks up with me

my [F, 23] current partner [M, 25] is verbally abusive towards me and always breaks up when he’s angry but thinks that i pushed him
for more context, we’ve been together for about a year and so. we both didn’t start off and a good place and both of us had a history of lying to each other about certain things. but one thing he hasn’t found out, is that i’ve cheated on him w my ex which people around me knew about it except him. i’ve also cheated on him while i’m studying overseas (we’re in a ldr currently) i did all these behind him and for some reason, i’m not sure whether it’s my projections or he’s also not a good guy himself (bad tempered & not genuine), i often have strong feelings he cheated on me before as well. our relationship has never been stable and he tried to leave many times, so it definitely did make me have very low self esteem when i’m around him and think that he’s potentially cheated before too. but he always denies it and even get angry thinking that i don’t trust him (note that he tried to leave many times over this before). he gets really verbally abusive when he gets angry and would start calling me names etc. and would turn things around and say that i push him and don’t give him space. (he’s avoidant, i’m anxious) and it start to make me think, am i the problem? did i push him to become how he is now? because he wasn’t like this at the start of the relationship. but one thing for sure, he has a very bad temper; i think this stemmed from the family he grew up in. i wonder what should i do from here? who’s problem isit exactly?
