2023.06.06 19:20 CiberX15 32 [M4F] PA / Northern EST - Looking for a fellow gamer to fall in love with 🤓😁

Please read this whole summary before replying! I’m looking for a long term relationship that can hopefully lead to marriage, but I don’t want to rush to get there. I like to take things slow, get to know each other, and see if we have the potential for a relationship that could last the rest of our lives. 😃
I am 32 years old, living in York PA. I look like this:
Oh and at ren fair…
I’m single, have never been married, don’t smoke, don’t drink, don’t have any children, but I think I’d like children someday with the right person.
So far as ideology goes, I have a policy of questioning and analyzing everything, including myself, my politics, and my beliefs. As such I see and understand the gray areas and opposing views even on the topics I feel very strongly about, and I find I match better with individuals who can similarly question their beliefs with an open mind. It doesn’t mean I don’t have strong feelings on some things, if anything I’ve found constantly questioning my values has strengthened many of them, but it does mean that I don’t judge people for holding different views.
Case in point, I’m “old fashioned” in that I won’t have sex before marriage. 🙂 Like I said, I’m not interested in judging people, but it does make me a bad match for individuals who need to have sex for a romantic relationship. 🤷‍♂️🙂
As for what I’m doing with my life, I’ve always had a deep passion for gaming, so when I grew up, rather than growing out of it, I doubled down and made game development my career! I got my bachelors degree in game design, then worked for seven years at a mobile games studio. In that time I paid off my car, all of my student debt, then I took a leap of faith, quit my job, and started my own tiny two man VR game studio, which is what I am doing now! 😎😁
Because of that I tend to stress the importance of gaming as a shared interest because it’s such a major part of my personality. And I often seek out fellow gamers, especially PC gamers who enjoy survival crafting, VR, or RTS games.
I don’t _need_ my partner to be a gamer, but I do pass most of my thoughts through the lens of game development, and spend a lot of my time gaming, so that needs to be something a romantic partner could embrace, not resent, even if it’s not her thing.🤷‍♂️🤓😅😁
Mostly I just want to be able to share at least one or two passions with my romantic partner, so if not gaming, we’d probably still be a great match if you have a love for Dungeons & Dragons, martial arts, playing an instrument or singing, fighting with foam swords (LARP), parkour, or talking about philosophy, super heroes, politics, and plot holes. 😁
To a lesser degree I also enjoy movies, theater, acting, anime, CGI, roller coasters, reading, long walks, climbing, bicycling, tennis, crafting, and DIY, so I could definitely get into them if they are things you are passionate about.😁
I’d like to avoid a long distance relationship, but I’m happy to drive up to 2 hours for dates. Further for fellow PC gamers, since we could hang out and get to know each other virtually, so long as we were still within practical driving range so we could see each other in person if things progress that far.
Other details about me:
-My personality type is INFP-A
-I enjoy reading and writing essay length replies, and deep conversation in general, and I look for the same in my matches 😄
-I like the cold 😁
-I am a nerd, and find nerdiness very attractive😉
-I try to avoid using foul language
-Not fond of crude humor
-My love languages are physical touch and quality time, with a little bit of words of affirmation
-I was diagnosed with ADHD as a child and have always considered it a super power rather than a disability 😎
-I can play drums and guitar by ear (but can’t read sheet music 😅)
-I enjoy sports and games with few if any rules: mud runs, rock climbing, parkour, trampoline parks, Minecraft, Risk, Paintball, etc.
-My media tastes tend to lean towards action, sci-fi, and fantasy: MCU, Star Wars, Disney, Pixar, some anime, etc.
So yeah! If you’re interested, shoot me a message! Please include a picture or two with your response! I won’t respond to replies without one.
I’ve included pictures of myself at the top of this profile, and I want to verify there is mutual attraction before getting too deep into conversation. Physical attraction is by no means the most important part of a relationship to me, I consider shared values and interests far more critical, but I do think it’s an important component of a romantic relationship.
Also if you don’t have a similar post up for me to look at please write a brief summary about yourself and what you’re looking for. I’m unlikely to respond if I can’t determine if you are a real human or not. 😅

2023.06.06 19:20 dig4fun1105 Never eating here again.

Lol this place is a dump. No morals. This is why chipotle has safety meetings. To make sure the public is safe from food borne illnesses. It states it in the application. 🤢🤮 Call the manager out on it they go n switch initials and leave their buckets in the mop sink with piss water. Never to be cleaned or changed properly. Dishes never washed properly pans never stocked. Demoralized store. Rotten staff. Rice cooker cleaned on the outside but where the pilot is its caked in with oil so much it no longer works properly.. The pan was always full for grease trap that spill into the fryer and down the side of the fryer and back wall from the vents every time i come on shift and always low on pans..🫤 i dont have it in me as an employee to even feel remotley ok with serving food under conditions as the ones i faced.. remember that e coli outbreak? God save us. The only reason they pass inspection is because of how the circle is. Dont worry director of the health department im sure wouldnt mind seeing this..i also have a list of names of the employees and managers responsible for running the store like this during hours of being opened. No cut gloves used no enforcement of hand washing or buckets supposed to be changed they dont have sanitizer some days and was told purell dont cut it. Also telling me with food allergies you dont have to whipe down the food serving area. Before u serve the person with food alergies. Again this isnt what chipotle should be about. It saddens me as someone whos followed cleanliness and speed and precision during rush and being able to keep up. Once i started on them about the cleanliness and mixing food unsafely i got written up with a final warning which ive never been written up before in the company. Next step is posting the store location. And getting these heard. Public needs to learn the truth about how some of these places are run. I cant stress it enough how gross it is and how long they been doing it for. Poisoning people and knowingly being aware about it..i also have text messages stating from the GM they are following safety guidelines..before i started shift and saved them. Just in case. Ive been threatened to by employess to stay quiet. I refuse to do so.. so when HR decides to give a shit about the safety of the public they know where to contact me here..and trust me i got enough here and proof from being targeted ill never have to work again..so come on chipotle..HR. please explain this.

2023.06.06 19:20 hotasanicecube My DoorDash Rant

Found myself volunteering in an area of the country where DoorDash doesn’t have much service at all. In fact nothing after about 9-10 pm. Typically Uber Eats shuts down early and Door Dash has drivers late at night. So I cancelled my DoorDash.
The other night I was in an area a bit further south near more restaurants and checked DoorDash for a burger and some fried chicken around 11 and BOOM, like 10 restaurants. I quick put in a couple restaurant orders. When I finished the first one, it said “submitting this order will reactivate your 9.99 DoorDash subscription”. I thought WTF, they have service here.
20 mins goes by and no driver, 40 still nothing, 60 and they cancel the order. Then the second order fails, I reorder at two different restaurants, same result. Nothing. Finally fell asleep hours later with one in the queue, it failed too.
Fucking DoorDash heisted me on getting a renewal fee knowing full well they don’t have drivers here either. 10 miles south.

2023.06.06 19:18 Spare-Personality-19 AITA for telling my elementary school best friend I don’t want to be friends anymore

AITA for telling my elementary school best friend I don’t want to be friends anymore
Hey, I’m new to this but I just really want to know if I was in the wrong. My ex best friend (14F) has been my best friend since around 5th grade ( I’m 15F). We’re currently going into our sophomore year of high school. The day before the last day of our freshman year I decided to send her a friendship breakup text. I decided to stop being friends with her for multiple reasons. One of the reasons is because I’ve tried setting boundaries multiple times. Since people thought it was cool to inappropriately touch each at our school, my ex best friend would find it funny to always grope me which made me very uncomfortable. I told her multiple times that I did not like her touching me because I didn’t even like being hugged. I told her multiple times but she wouldn’t stop. One time I was so annoyed I told her I would stop being friends with her if she didn’t stop touching me. She finally dialed it down by our freshman year. At the beginning of the school year we started drifting apart and at first I tried to stop it from happening but I regret doing that. When the school year had started, she started being really mean to other people even though in the past she was the kindest person you could ever meet. I noticed she had been mean to others and me so I told her that she had been doing this. She then told me that she would change but she didn’t. She then continued to be mean to others behind my back. I only found out because people started coming to me telling me she had been hurting their feelings. Also at the beginning of the school year her “best friend” (I’m going to call her toxic friend #1) had started drama with her for complementing her insta post. Toxic friend #1 had another friend, toxic friend #2. Toxic friend #2 then decided to tell my ex best friend to kill herself and went into detail on how to do so. For ex. She said “shove a taser up your pussy”, “hang yourself with a chain because if you use a rope it’ll snap”, and to shoot herself. Well my ex best friend decided to go back to being friends with them again just because they were friends when they were younger. Not to mention all of them go behind each other’s back and talk crap about one another. Well I could no longer handle the toxicity of that kind of situation, because that kind of thing had happened multiple times and they always ended up being friends again. Being friends with her had quite literally made me miserable and made so happy when I didn’t have to see her. Well a day before the last day of school I sent her the text (I’ll add the photos of the messages) and I didn’t realize toxic friend #1 and #2 were sitting with her until after I sent it, but Toxic friend #1 decided to text for her. A part of the text said “have you considered that -ex best friend- doesn’t want to see hentai 24/7” well I got annoyed because it was clear that they didn’t read anything in my text and I went and confronted my ex best friend. I asked how did hentai come into the conversation and all my ex best friend had to say was “ when you went around showing a drawing of a penis.” I then said that is something that happened once not “24/7”. She then proceeded to say “well you made everyone you showed uncomfortable. I then replied with I realized that the next day and I felt bad and if anyone was uncomfortable they could have asked to to stop and I would have. Do you want to know what’s funny about that, the exact same day she let a friend draw a giant penis on her arm and she went around showing people. Apparently what I did was bad even though I only did that once, even though she does stuff like that all the time. She also has a tendency to be loud and make the most annoying jokes and meme references that annoy people. I also told her that she makes people uncomfortable by trauma dumping in not at all funny jokes. I also sent her another text around 20-30 minutes after I confronted her saying “There's one thing I forgot to say the fact that you're arguing with me because I'm saying I don't want to be friends proves that you're a toxic person if you were a normal person you would realize that if you didn't respond you could have been done with me and you wouldn't have to talk to me, a friend you think is toxic” and she had blocked me before I sent the text so she didn’t see it. I also told her not to talk to me ever again when I confronted her. I almost forgot to mention I think I was friends with toxic friend #1 first because in 3rd grade we we’re friends and then they moved. I only thought I should mention that because in one of the text, toxic friend #1 mentions that they were “friends” with my ex best friend for years. Also in the message about how I didn’t want to be friends with her I said she’s become rebellious because she snuck a boy into her very strict mothers house and lost her virginity. She also got a phone from one of her friends even though her mom doesn’t want her or her siblings to have devices, and she definitely shouldn’t have a phone because she loves talking to random men and women on the internet and getting into relationships with them. If you look at the screenshots you will see that I said she only said 2 full sentences to me in the span of 3 months I’m actually telling the truth I’m not over exaggerating things. But seriously am I the asshole/the one in the wrong or did I do the right thing.

2023.06.06 19:18 cityhumper Wifi event logging all day long (Fritzbox 7583, OS 7.50)

Wifi event logging all day long (Fritzbox 7583, OS 7.50)
I have a Fritzbox 7583 that received a mandatory FW rollout a couple of months ago, when it was updated from OS 7.30 to 7.50. I also have a FritzRepeater 1750E in a mesh with the router, but no other repeaters or similar.
Since the FW upgrade, I noticed that the events list, which used to be empty (or nearly so), now contains about a hundred entries every single day. They seem to describe band switches of our devices, i.e. laptops and smartphones in our household:
I originally assumed these was a symptom of problems and tried the following:
  • Change DHCP lease length
  • Change Wifi encryption from WPA2+WPA3 back to WPA2 only
  • Turn off the repeater (it's still on 7.30, no newer FW available)
  • Turn off my soundbar (also 2.4 GHz) because it's close to the router
  • Disabled auto channel selection
  • Complete reset of the Fritzbox and re-configure everything
I checked the release notes of FritzOS 7.50 and couldn't find anything about changed logging behavior either. So nothing has helped and I'm running out of ideas, hence me coming here.
Is it a problem symptom, or is it just newly extended logging? In either case I'd like to stop it because it makes it hard to check for important logs. How can I stop this?

2023.06.06 19:17 Microwave_7 I left before the interview

They hit every red flag.
I got to the location on time, but the building had a different business name on the front and no street number. I called the phone number I was given and asked if this was the building because it was labelled "Other Business Center" and not "This Business." The receptionist laughed at me and said I was "probably at the right place, but if not, there's another location in the city." Okay? So I go inside and only after you walk through the 30ish yard foyer do you see a sign for "This Business."
I walk in and 3 receptionists are talking amongst each other. We all look at each other, I smile, and they go back chatting for another minute until one woman leaves (I'm assuming for break because she brought her things). Then they acknowledge me and tell me to go sit in the waiting room.
Twenty minutes later one of the receptionists frantically walks to a clerk near me and asks where someone is because the woman who was supposed to be interviewing me is busy. Then she runs to the back of the office and comes back 5 minutes later. She said (to the clerk, not me, but loud enough so I could hear) that she's going to my interviewers office because nobody can find or contact anyone else.
At this point its been half an hour. I've seen too many red flags and I'm ready to go home. I go tell the last remaining receptionist that I was supposed to have an interview, but nobody's come to get me and I can't wait around any longer. I give her my name and say that the interviewer has my information if she wants to reschedule, but I'm sorry and I can't keep waiting.
The receptionist who has been on the goose chase comes running down the hall and says that my interview was at noon (so, right now). I say that I was at 11:30 (I have it written down from my phone call last week) and she must have gotten the time wrong, but I can't wait and to contact me if she likes.
I applied for 3 or 4 positions with this company back in April because they were "urgently hiring," but they waited 2 months to call me. On top of that, the woman who I spoke with (and who was supposed to interview me) said that after reading my resume she thought I would be better suited to a different job I didnt apply for. She didn't know the salary, benefits, duties, job name, or job description off the top of her head. I asked her to send me the details so I could familiarize myself with the duties and prepare for the interview. She said that she would "try to find someone at the other office with the job decription" and email me the details. She never did. She also never emailed me to confirm the interview like I had asked. Then she gets the time wrong and tries to blame me.
And I thought my current job was bad. No wonder this place can't hire anyone. I can't even say this was the most unprofessional interview I've ever had (or, I guess, didn't have) because when I was in my 20s I went to a group interview for a sales job and another time I wanted an hour for my interview. I'm sick of it at this point.
How can businesses be so unprofessional and sloppy, but I'm expected to show up early and beg to work there. I already have an okay job at a bad company. I've applied to over 100 jobs since December and I've had a total of 4 interviews.
I'm glad I had a better interview this morning for a firm I'm really interested in 🤞
It's rough out there.

2023.06.06 19:17 Traditional-Fan5256 Disappointing First Month Post Grad

Context: I graduated with Bachelor of Chemical Engineering in May 2023
My first month of post grad life has been a big letdown. In January of 2023 I was approached by a local construction company about working as an engineer for them. At first I was skeptical because they seemed to be more Civil Engineering related. I interviewed with them 2 times and requested an additional meeting with an engineer to be sure that the job was something related to Chemical Engineering. I was told that there would be a lot of work related to the design/testing of the Distillation Columns, Reactors, Tanks etc. that they build and drawing P&ID diagrams. In addition I was told this job would be mostly located at their corporate office (near where I live), with occasional travel that wouldn't happen until at least six months in. This sounded like a great opportunity so in March I took it.
Once I started working there the job could not be further from discussed. I was informed that instead of being in their corporate office most of the time and occasionally in the field, I would have permanently relocate right away to a coal power plant job site 4-4.5 hours away. This power plant is aging and full of hazards/unsafe conditions. When I went to the site and learned that my responsibilities would include training documentation, timekeeping, and inventory management. I was also introduced by the project manager to everyone as a "Summer Co-op" and was told that I wouldn't have much to do until later this fall.
When I asked my manager about my responsibilities and the lack of design potential he deflected and told me that "construction project managers make more than design specialists". It was apparent that this was not the role he sold me on 2 months prior. After asking a second time for clarification on my role at the site he told me I would be more of a construction manager if I stayed and then we mutually parted ways.
I realize that not every job is perfect but I was misled almost every step of the way here. I am very upset because I turned down other offers to take up this one. I now have to re-enter the current tough job market. I have lots of prior Co-op/Internship experience and graduated with a 3.5 GPA. I am starting to reach out to the companies I turned down but I am very frustrated. What else can I do here?

2023.06.06 19:17 ImNotButter29 Was/is your person with BPD a political extremist?

My BPD family member's opinions were part of the reason why I went no contact. Imagine a Tumblr version of a Nazi. That was literally her. Militant feminism, veganism, Wiccan/witchcraft, etc. Whatever identity she put on it would lead to essentially genocidal rants against those who didnt do the things she does. She got really into the gender ideology stuff and transformed into the "Die cis scum" type of person. She no longer associates with Cisgendestraight people and talks about how they deserve to die on Twitter. She wants to kill men and white people (she is white) and went through a phase where she would only associate with Black people, all the way down to acting like a stereotype of an Urban Black woman. It was fucking bizarre.
I once inadvertently gave her a mental breakdown by eating a chicken tender while she was at my house. The hysterics were on full display and she locked herself in a bedroom and didnt come out for over 2 hours. Then she refused to speak to me for the remainder of her visit. Mind you this wasnt a casual visit, someone in the family fucking died. And she had posted about how people like this family member should die not even a week before they died. She literally got what she wanted and yet through a victim fueled rampage about how she was so devastated about the death. Like bro you WANT people like our family member to die, and now suddenly your feelings are hurt?
It was exhausting.

2023.06.06 19:17 IAmNotPaulWaitzkin Starting therapy and am terrified

It was suggested to me that I start therapy. I’m really fearful of going, but I scheduled something for Friday. Big win for me. But I’m having a lot of fears about it. I wonder if any of it is normal or how I can ease those fears before my initial appointment so that it isn’t so painful.
I may have a fear of unfamiliar spaces? Maybe that’s part of my issue. I’m also not sure how much I’m still supposed to pretend to be happy. So in general I’m just not sure how the conversation will go or how it is supposed to go and that’s frightening.
I also may be gatekeeping suffering on myself. There’s been a number of events that have disturbed me all of my life and yet I don’t know why they were so disturbing to me. And I can hardly remember them. My situation wasn’t nearly as bad as others’ so I feel like if I get help from a therapist, I’m kinda like the guy at work who notices the sales team had a huge success and celebrated with cake and ice cream, so I sneak into the multipurpose room to snag some for myself even though I played zero role. I don’t understand how I can feel that what happened had no impact (or at least shouldn’t have had as strong an impact as it did and Im just choosing to make a mountain out of a molehill) and yet I’m ruminating about 24/7. I remember when that stuff was going on and I tried to reach out to my mom for help, she either said I was making it up for attention, misunderstanding what happened, overreacting, or stupid for falling for it. So maybe it makes sense that I doubt how much I am worth of therapy?
I have never talked about my life. I have always used tactics to dodge personal questions. And simple questions like, “what did you eat for breakfast/lunch”. I don’t feel comfortable telling people that I ate like a degenerate, or skipped eating entirely just to avoid eating like a degenerate or just am too depressed to eat sometimes. Its going to be hard to break that fear of being shamed.
I also remember very little. Most of the really hard stuff happened when I was very young. And I know how easily we can misremember and accidentally add, remove, or alter details from memories that long ago, especially at that age. And I don’t want to accuse anyone of something they didn’t do. But I also don’t want to leave out any details that could provide insight.
I’m really ashamed of what happened, how I handled it, and how its effecting me today. I’m scared my therapist is going to look down on me. And even if they are compassionate in the session, they will go home and think, “wow that guy who is definitely not named Paul sure is pathetic. I really pity him and I feel sorry for his friends and family for the burden I’m sure he casts on them. How philanthropic of them to talk to that man not named Paul.” Not sure why I even care what my therapist thinks in their free time. Btw, I’m also worried that people reading this post will think the same. Please don’t tell me if you do, thanks :)

2023.06.06 19:16 Retoaded_Gaming69 Spotty Ethernet connection?

I'm not sure if this is the correct subreddit for internet issues but anyways. My internet and wifi connection have been very spotty the last 24 hours. My ping will reciprocate between 5000ms and 22ms about twice a minute. I am able to watch YouTube just fine and download a game just fine. In a discord call I can send messages, hear others and watch their streams. But they can't hear me at all. Valorant and overwatch will constantly disconnect me and similar issues in other places. Every Speedtest displays a 35-45mbps speed but I am unsure on how to fix this.

2023.06.06 19:16 dinosarahsaurus Follow up to seeking non-MS emotional support

See prior vent post here
I came here last week and dropped a lot of my emotions and fears. I thought I give a quick update since I was upset about a wildfire threathening my home.
First, I am safe and sound. The main village area where I live was not evacuated. My small village is approximately 1600 residents total. The surrounding areas evacuated approximately 1800 people. Folks were dispersed to many places but the village center has been bumping. The wildfire is still uncontrolled at 24,000 hectares. It is semi contained and a 2nd wildfire on the other side of the village has been extinguished.
They are estimating several more weeks before the fire is considered controlled and probably longer to get it extinguished.
Damages... holy shit am I ever blessed. My partner and I have a 2nd property that is in the evacuation zone that has a camper that his parents summer in and a pretty darn new garage for his antique vehicles. We got the vehicles out for the evacuation. We still haven't been allowed to the land because it is in the riskiest part but it is at the furthest from the risk. Like it took forever for the fire to hit our land specifically. A dear friend who is a fire fighter went and inspected our place. We have suffered melted siding. Thank goodness that is all so far.
I'm more relaxed and at ease. Not as despairing. A lot of that is because the government finally brought in loads of supports.
Thank you to all who provided me with support last week.

2023.06.06 19:16 Brahms12 I am new to this group. I would like to share a prologue and welcome! Any helpful critiques. And thank you for reading.

Lightning split the heavens exposing the night sky in a collage of crimson and lavender. The stunning and instantaneous color-scope illuminated the shadowy darkness and revealed a glimpse of the looming storm in the distance.
How beautiful, she thought as she stood, gazing out of the front window in her evening gown. The air was perfect and, for the moment, was calm and still. But when she looked down her hand was shaking. Images and thoughts flashed through her mind: her future, their new house, motherhood… her mind drifted. She thought about how lonely another night alone was going to be; how much she missed him when he was away.
Isotta tried her best to keep herself occupied during the long weekends when he was gone, mostly by gardening through the Spring and Summer, but she also read a lot. She’d already gone through the stack of novels in her husband’s study: The Godfather, Papillon, The Chosen, Fahrenheit 451, to name a few - It was a pleasure to burn, she thought.
They were just diversions though, the reading and the gardening. She used them to sideline the unpleasant feelings that crept in now and again. It was important to keep them away; to never let them take hold of her or her feelings. But she knew it was coming. She knew it was just a matter of time. She could sense it. Maybe I should start knitting baby clothes, she thought. And she sighed deeply and smiled.
Her parents and sister were not in the country and other than a brief visit a while back, she hasn't seen or spoken to them in almost a year. In this new life, this new neighborhood, she had no close friends other than the kind woman she met a few weekends back at the grocery store. A woman who was also pregnant with her first.
Looking across the house, through the living room and over the dining room table, she saw that the TV was still on. The Dick Cavett show. She had forgotten that she left it on. He had a lot of famous American guests on. Some of them she knew but most she didn’t. She liked his show, the few times she watched it, though she never paid too much attention to it. Plus, on this night the volume was turned way down allowing the sounds of the weather, the distant rumble of thunder and the building gusts of wind, to hold her allure for the evening. It kept her company.
The damp air crept in through the screen door on the porch and she felt its humid touch on her skin as the rain began falling, a drizzle at first. She relaxed to the sound of the popping droplets on the asphalt.
Isotta James, who came over from Italy and had been on her own since she was sixteen, was a very intuitive and free-spirited young woman. She loved the adventure she was on and enjoyed her new surroundings; the cool climate of Long Island in the Autumn.
It excited her to be married to an officer and live in a foreign country. She always dreamed of living in America and now it was a reality. And, she was looking forward to his return after the weekend so they could go out on more adventures together: hiking up Bear mountain or visiting fort Ticonderoga upstate, taking a day trip up to Woodstock for a romantic weekend. But she especially loved visiting New York City. That was the place where she felt the freest. Especially with him. It was so new to her and the energy was tangible . She could spend all day with Thomas in the city, holding hands, visiting museums and strolling down the sidewalks. She loved the food too, eating dinner at one place and dessert at another. It was like being back home in Barri but different. She felt so special when they were together.
As the night descended further and the sounds of the storm became spectral, a touch of late night tedium and discomfort snuck into her mood. Isotta, spending much of the evening downstairs trying to keep herself engaged, finally admitted to herself that she was tired and there was nothing more to keep her interest so she christened it a good time to head upstairs for the night.
She seemed to float in her blue sleeveless nightdress as she reached to shut the blinds. Then she turned off the T.V. and the light in the living room and walked through the house towards the stairs, turning the upstairs light on first. One step at a time, she told herself as she carefully walked up, suddenly aware of how tender her feet felt. Going up and down the stairs each day was taking its toll and she avoided it as often as she could. Subtle pings of pain began pulsing through her hips that she continued up the flight. Only one more month to go, she thought while she labored up the remaining steps, her expectant belly competing with her tiny frame. Groucho Marx, she mumbled. Yes, it came to her in a flash. Groucho Marx. That’s who was on the Dick Cavett show, she remembered him now. You Bet Your Life, she thought. And she did.
Once atop the last step and slightly out of breath, Isotta paused to collect herself. She took another few steps but then abruptly stopped. A faint dizziness came over her. She tried to wish it away but instead lost her balance for a brief second and braced herself, one hand reaching out to the wall. She glanced around as if forgetting where she was. Looking down she could see that her hand was shaking again. Harder this time.. She became light-headed and her vision blurred. The room began spinning and a lurching sensation grew from inside her belly. Something, she murmured aloud as she caught breath, something isn’t right.
She was telling herself to lie down, thinking she was going to pass out but instead she forced herself down the length of the hallway toward the bedroom, thinking that getting into bed would bring the most satisfying relief. It’s amazing how just walking up a flight of stairs can be so exhausting when you're 8 months pregnant.
But before she reached the bedroom, the cramps came back with an unforgiving determination and, with a sharp grimace, she clutched her belly and dashed into the bedroom, almost tripping over her own feet as she half stumbled toward the end table. She exerted herself as she reached for the side of the bed and with a flick, turned on the table lamp. She pulled out the drawer and rummaged around until her hand found the Rx bottle she was looking for. She twisted it open and promptly downed two pills and then hiked herself up onto the bed with a grunt. During the pregnancy, Isotta was treated for eclampsia and the magnesium pills were the only safe thing that eased the woozy symptoms which came on frequently and were sometimes severe. There's a heavenly feeling, though, in that first moment when you lie down in bed. First it's the feet and then the knees, the shoulders, the neck and eventually an awareness of your entire body sinking into the mattress.
She pulled the covers up to her neck and turned over on her side, maneuvered an extra pillow between her legs and then reached out to turn off the light. Isotta lied as still as she could enduring the queasy discomfort, knowing that it would take a few minutes to kick in. She took a deep breath to calm her nerves and after a few patient minutes the nausea and spinning began to dissipate. Her head felt cool from the perspiration and her nightgown clinged uncomfortably to her back. But it didn't matter. Everything felt calm again even with the rumblings of the storm and the great flashes light. With a gentle sigh, she closed her eyes and slowly drifted off to sleep.
Isotta woke up a few hours later. It was normal for her to wake up in the middle of the night but this time it was different. She had been having that dream again, the one where she was drowning in the bathtub with her baby in her arms. She could still feel the water filling her lungs and the anxiety rising in her chest. She sat up in bed abruptly and looked around the dark and silent room.
The dream had always been a terrifying one, but tonight it had been even worse. She could still see the look of confusion in her baby's eyes as the water rose around them. She could still feel the desperation as she struggled to keep them both afloat.
Isotta believed that if you need to get your mind off of something, the best thing was a change of scenery. So, she got out of bed to use the bathroom and on her way back stopped to peer out the bedroom window. The rain was still coming down and the wind was whistling around the corner of the house. She could barely see anything outside when she gazed into the darkness, but she thought she heard something. Movement in the bushes? Isotta held her breath so she could hear over din of the storm and, after a moment, the sound came again. Shh-Shh-Shh. It was hard to tell if it was the weather or if there really was something making that noise.
It crossed her mind to put her slippers on and go downstairs to see what was causing the noise but she was sure that it was the wind or the cover of the trash can dangling in the bushes. Thomas forgot to tie the lid down again, she thought. How was I going to sleep now? But then it stopped. Isotta waited for a bit, just to be sure. But it never came back. After a pause she decided it must have been nothing and returned to bed. It wasn't the first time she was alone in the house and it certainly wouldn't be the last. She relaxed again into a fetal position, tucked the pillow between her legs and pulled the covers back up.
The more she thought about it, the less sure she was that she heard anything at all. It could have just been street noise coming through the rain, she thought. Who knows?
She lied in bed and thought about wha to do the rest of the weekend. She really wanted to spend time in the garden. It was the perfect month to plant the Aronias and the Dahlias. The soil will be moist and easy to move around, especially after a hard rain. It wasn't going to be easy, being 8 months pregnant, but she was going to do her best.
The laundry definitely needed to get done too. She needed her gardening pants and knee pads and she had asked Thomas a thousand times to move the rocking chair to the other corner in the nursery. I should probably do it myself, she thought.
Just as she was falling back into sleep, she heard it again. Shh-Shh-Shh. But it was louder and bigger now. Something was definitely moving and it was closer, a lot closer. What?, she whispered in disbelief. It sounded like someone dragging a rake across thick grass in short powerful heaves. Her arm started shaking again.
There was a soft grunt like a man's voice and what sound did like a knock on the window. Just as she was about to get up and turn the light on she felt Thomas getting into bed next to her. It was dark and, although she was facing the other way, she could feel his weight easing down into the mattress beside her. That's odd, she thought. What's he doing home?
"Hi honey," she whispered in a half-woken voice.
A few seconds went by but there was no response. Maybe he was too tired to speak or maybe he didn't want to wake me up? Finally she could relax and drift off to sleep again but she caught herself.
"Honey?" she said again, this time with more curiosity.
But there was only Silence. And then she remembered, as clarity replaced drowsiness, Thom was supposed to be gone all weekend. He would have called if he was coming home.
She searched for his mannerisms: the way he shuffled his legs in the sheets, the heat of his body, his smell, the way he reached for her hand under the covers… only there was no heat, and no legs shuffling. Instead, what she noticed was how still he was. She could feel the chill radiating off his skin and there was a smell that was growing more and more bitter by the second.
“Who’s here? Thom? Is that you?” she asked in a nervous whisper.
There was more movement in the bed, rolling and shifting. The darkness was heavy, pressing Isotta down. Thomas shouldn't be home for two days, she thought.

2023.06.06 19:15 Psiborg0099 Random reflection of my experience thus far

Here are some of my criticisms thus far, having only about 16 shrines completed. I know that this is a great game and it still has much to show, but here are some insights from a player perspective on the early stages of the game.
1) I was hoping they made the tutorial area more optional. This turned a lot of my friends off from ever proceeding with BotW. I also found it tedious. At the same time, knowing how to utilize your abilities is important.
2) I find that almost every single combat engagement that I’ve had thus far (except for against a Boko Boss), I can get through by just mashing the attack button. I might get struck once in the process, pop a heal, and then finish them off. I kind of wish blocking and actually dodging was more critical to survive.
3) Although I’m happy to find some new enemies here and there, those goofy and childish looking Bokoblins are still all over the place. I was really hoping those would get a more extreme rendition for the sequel. Also, they’re an absolute breeze. I have also encountered the Horriblins (also way too easy), and several types of Like-Likes (interesting idea and a bit more challenging).!I’m sure later parts of the game will feature some tougher enemies too.
I feel like Nintendo must make sure to grip players’ first impressions more effectively for their next open world release. I’m a patient player and a huge Zelda fan, but I know some of my friends aren’t, and they’re missing out on a wonderful gaming experience simply due to a slow start. That being said, back to Hyrule. I can’t wait to see what else is in store. Please don’t spoil too much for me.

2023.06.06 19:15 GiselePearl Are aliens attempting to communicate with me via my breast?

(Title is my dumb attempt at humor.) But for real, my breast is vibrating inside. Kind of like an eye twitch but at a much, much faster frequency. When I place my hand over it, I can't feel it from the outside, but it's definitely buzzing in there. It's not exactly painful but not pleasant either. Uncomfortable and disconcerting. Yesterday it was maddening and just wouldn't stop.
Today it's been nearly silent. The aliens must have given up trying to communicate with a dullard like me.
I had my 2nd biopsy last Friday. This one was MRI guided and hurt so much more than the ultrasound guided. I had no buzzing after the ultrasound one but this one ... woo wee. It's like my boob is picking up frequencies. What the heck is this buzzy boob?
Lumpectomy (?? pending some results I'll get any hour now - OMG the anxiety) on Friday. Am I going to have revenge of the buzzy boob after that too?

2023.06.06 19:15 RiverRatSwims Will I change my mind about OAD?

I’m curious if anyone felt sure they were OAD & time changed their mind?
Context: I’m a 28F. Up until 24 I thought I wanted to be CF. Eventually I changed my mind & im so happy/grateful to have our baby (5 months). I was lucky to have an easy pregnancy & labor but I’m currently a SAHM & struggling a lot of days.
I would say he’s very average in terms of dragon/unicorn. He can be fussy at times, wakes very frequently in the night, lotssss of difficulties BF the first 2 months (tongue tie, OT, pumping etc).
I miss the old me so much. I had so much independence. I worked out regularly & overall really enjoyed my life lol I feel somewhat trapped right now & keep waiting for it to get better.
Having a child is SO HARD. I really can’t imagine doing this all over again one day. I feel 95% sure we are OAD but I’m curious if anyone else felt that way & later changed their mind?
I love the idea of how it’s 2 vs 1 now & my partner & I can give each other breaks. I don’t like chaos & I think my personality is better suited to OAD.
I don’t want to go back on any hormonal BC or even the IUD. Really the only thing that would fit my needs is for my partner to get a vasectomy but the (mostly) permanence scares me. But the thought of an accidental pregnancy scares me as well. I had to take clomid to get pregnant so part of me hopes I’m not that fertile lol but I’m not betting on that!

2023.06.06 19:14 Historical-Try-7683 possible system-questioning

the more i read about OSDD the more i see myself in it. ive talked to a couple close friends and therapists about it but i’ve been met with a level of skepticism that is understandable but not necessarily helpful. in contrast when i tell my girlfriend who has DID about some of my experiences she relates, even enthusiastically. we started dating about 5 months ago and i started to read a little bit about did. at the same time i’ve been going through my own journey with identity, trama, and disassociation. i think meeting her has definitely been a catalyst for some of this. i was aware i had some kind of disassociative disorder since childhood and i know for sure i have cptsd but i started to ask more questions about my own dissociative disorder about a month ago, after being badly triggered. the other side is that i’ve finally gotten to a safe place about a year and a half ago and i’ve spent a lot of that time finally being able to process that trauma. so im afraid i’m going through some denial/uncertainty. i’m nervous to tell my girlfriend just yet, and i feel like it might be helpful to hear the opinions of other systems.
so now i’ll get a lil into some of the details. i won’t go into everything because it’s really a lot. yesterday i filled 6 or 7 page’s of things that suggest the possibility of being a system.
after being badly triggered i had a day where i blacked out most of the day. i suspected i had ran an errand and my therapist suggested i look at my bank statement. when i did i remembered some of the things that happened but only in the 3rd person. i actually did a lot, it was a busy day by any standard. my memory is of being very distressed and disassociated but i’m watching myself function on a level that exceeds my masking ability and my own executive function on a good day. i have autism, adhd, and acute dyslexia resulting in terrible executive function and it makes this very difficult to explain.
shortly after this i told my therapist how affective and calming it was to speak to my inner child during a crisis. they told me about IFS. i started to discover parts, and this is when i really started to suspect that there might be a lil more than CPTSD.
i’m a trans woman and i’ve noticed that my memories of when i presented as male are almost all in the 3rd person but my memories of presenting femme are all in the first person.
i also have a near constant dialog with a voice in my head. it usually takes on the voice of people in supportive relationships in my life. it doesn’t say much but it can be critical, and it asks a lot of questions. it’s always analytical, logical, and fairly stoic. it seems to help me process my thoughts and feelings. i speak with them so much, i spend hours a day pacing around my house having discussions with them.
i noticed in the last year that i sometimes have two streams of consciousness. it doesn’t last long and it can be difficult to focus on one or the other. i initially brushed it off and kind of assumed it was normal
yesterday i really leaned into my doubts about it and heard an agitated voice tell me how stupid and annoying that i feel this way.
a part also wanted me to tell my girlfriend not to do this thing that is triggering to us. i couldn’t imagine her doing something like that but it seemed important to tell her anyway, so i did.
theres a lot of other stuff and it pretty much nails the cptsd diagnosis but a lot of the cptsd experience seems to fall short of explaining what i feel like is agency in some of my parts. i’m trying to be patient but i we’re a lil frustrated with the process at times. i want answers and my parts sometimes feel alienated by my questions, but my history of ignoring their needs to focus on external pressures.
it’s easy for me to rationalize things and explain them through autism or dyslexia.i also struggle with imposter syndrome which is particularly not helpful part of me is fine with not having definitive answers, kinda like if it’s working why question it so much. but part of me also wants some external validation, especially considering my anxiety about what that means for my relationship with my GF.
any input is greatly appreciated 😊

2023.06.06 19:14 Upper-Yogurtcloset55 i have an issue with connection due to feeling “smarter” than others and i hate the broken system i live in, but trying to leave it is just as scary. my life goal is to educate others to make a more stable world for others, but life can be so disgorging and i don’t want to lose track of my goal.

i’m 16 and live in America. the country itself isn’t all bad, but i believe our way of capitalism is inherently broken and unfair, and causes many of humans day to day issues. i tend to look at everything over logically and for some time i entirely emotionally disconnected from the world. but after doing inner self work and changing my way of life for a while now i’ve become immersed in self improvement. i find it hard to spend time or fully connect with others because everyone focuses on the trees and not the forest, and often when i try to speak on deep or large topics others don’t have much to say or they feel like i’m assuming i’m better than them. which i may be, but i never judge others. i aspire to teach others the lessons and ideas i’ve learned that positively impact my life. i understand everyone is a product of their environment and America has for a long time been what i’d call “an unstable environment” many are set up to fail from the start, but i realized i’ve been given a golden opportunity in life to help others, and i feel the need to do something larger then life just to feel truly accomplished. i set impossibly high standard for myself and others often look up to me as the “one that has their things figured out” but it’s really hard to care about people that don’t have goals or spend their time doing meaningless tasks. how can i focus on small scale accomplishments and not feel the need to be the best all the time? i’m well aware of why my thinking is this way, but for me being aware of it doesn’t help. i plan to do something like public speaking, journalism or book writing, or maybe even politics if i felt i could change our system here in america. but part of me feels it’s no use, and id be much better off running away to another country and writing books to maybe have an impact on others. i have so many large and interesting thoughts and ways of looking at life but because of that i can often times feel like a loner and like people don’t understand my goals or true emotions. what do i do other than be aware of all this. it’s been on my mind for a while now. if you read this i thank you in advance, Dr k you are truly the type of person i value and look up too. you have such a positive impact on others and truly understand that knowledge and understanding is power. i wish to be anything near what you are one day.

2023.06.06 19:14 sploshfreak i’m the worst daughter and i feel helpless

this post is gonna be long so I apologise in advance. adding nsfw just in case.
my family has financially struggled for as long as I can remember, my childhood was great. we owned a penthouse, my family was happy and I had everything a child ever wanted. all the toys, a bunch of friends and loving parents. this all changed when we moved to another place for dad's work, my mom had to shut her business down because of the move ( most of the monev was being earned by my mom ) we didn't own the home we live in but didn't have to pay rent because the apartment was owned by one of my dad's friends, our neighbours were amazing and it all felt like being in a huge family. when my fourth grade ended we had to move back to our old home because of family issues. those being the fact that my dad had a second family. my mom found out about his second family when she was six months pregnant with me, she never told me to protect my peace of mind. they found our address and tried to harm us so we ended up moving out. When we moved back new tenants were living below us. It was a woman who I will call 'A' for now. A used to force women to become prostitutes and used to sell alcohol. Now the state where I live is dry so no alcohol is allowed unless you had a permit. Even if she did have it reselling is not allowed. I live in India where to this day inter-religion marriages are heavily frowned upon.
My mom a Jain married my dad who is a Muslim. She was kicked out by her parents and wasn't allowed to talk to my dad's side of the family until she converted which she refused to do. When A found out that my mom was a Jain who married a Muslim guy she beat my mom up. I was at a friend's house and when my dad saw her beating my mom up he ran away. A threw glass shards at my mom and beat her up with a metal pipe. Thankfully there were some people around who defended my mom. For five days we lived at my dad's friend's house. We ended up abandoning the house and had the bank seize it. However, A managed to break in from the roof and stole all my mom's valuables. We moved to another place near my dad's friend's house. I was sent to boarding school so that I did not have to deal with my parents. I spent my sixth and seventh grade there before covid hit. This is when I found out the truth about my dad.
He and his wife beat my mom up when she was pregnant, He sold all my mom's jewellery without telling her to buy his other wife gifts. He took my tablets and my toys and gave them to his other kids. He constantly abuses her and threatens to kill her. As a 13-year-old this was a lot to take in. I fell into depression and started hating my dad. Three years spent in that house has made me realise what a huge piece of shit my father is. My mom's business picked up a little and we were able to move to a better area. This was when I started tenth grade so I was thankful for a new environment. I made new friends, started feeling happier and also convinced and supported my mom to file for a divorce. the only reason he signed the papers is because my mom told him that to earn more money she has to switch back to her old surname. we even changed my name which he doesn't know about yet.
Now the business is slowing down again. We are struggling to pay rent, and can't afford a lot of groceries right now. My mom and dad have been going through a lot of fights and she asked him to leave, to give us peace and asked him to go back to his other family for a few weeks. He threatened to commit suicide and blame my mom for it so she gets jailed. I know my father hates me. He blamed his heart attack on me. I've always said my mind and I've told him several times how I hate him and how he's a terrible terrible dad. He only pretends to love me for his security of housing. My mom works a lot. She's at her office up to 12 hours a day. lk not a lot compared to a lot of other women but she also has to manage her sleep, making food and spending some time with me. The thing is she works in a male-dominated field (in my country ) and therefore a lot of people don't take her seriously. She finishes all the work but never gets her payments. She has to collect about 4.7 crores at this moment ( around 500k USD) but her clients simply delay the payments. She came home crying today. She went to collect a cheque THAT SHE WORKED FOR and the client started saying things like "You should become a prostitute you'll earn more" and "You're a poor girl so I thought I'II do a favour by dropping you off but you're purposefully showing me the wrong roads" "You're brainless" and so much more. Mind you he's thirty years older than my mom and has known her since 2010. He even made a comment sexualising me.
I just don't get it. why my mom? she's an amazing mom, yes we have moments but she's done so much to protect me. I just want her to be happy and I feel terrible knowing that I'll never be enough. I'll never be the daughter she deserves.

2023.06.06 19:13 social8xiety Why do I still suck at listening comprehension after 10 years?

My listening in English is also not amazing, so maybe I just have some kind of genetic auditory issue because it’s not that I can’t hear well, it’s that I can’t process what I’m hearing well or quickly enough because:
  1. My reading, writing and speaking are ~C1 and my accent (I’m told) is terrific.
  2. My listening, given the countless hours I’ve practiced it, sucks
  3. I can understand speakers in podcasts and YouTube videos when speaking clearly with little background noise
  4. I’m much better at understanding lengthier stories since if I miss details I catch them later
  5. but I lose a lot of info when someone talks to me all of a sudden or especially asks me a question
Is it possible I’m just incapable of improving this part of my skill? It’s very frustrating to see people whose listening comprehension is higher than mine but then they can’t express themselves even close to my level.

Summa Silver Reports Great Metallurgical Test Results from Mogollon Project
Summa Silver Corp. (TSXV:SSVR) (OTCQX:SSVRF) reported silver and gold recovery results from initial scoping-level metallurgical test work from its high-grade silver-gold Mogollon Project near Silver City, New Mexico (the “Mogollon Project”). Results demonstrate strong recoveries of silver and gold from the Consolidated target.

Key Highlights

  • Outstanding Silver and Gold Recoveries: Two representative composite samples from the Queen Vein featured recoveries ranging from 96.2% to 97.9% for silver and 97.7% to 97.8% for gold from flotation concentrates.
  • High-Grade Concentrate Produced: Both composite samples produced a high-grade concentrate with grades that averaged 2,122 g/t silver and 77 g/t gold.
  • Conventional Milling Potential: The demonstrated recoveries were produced from a sample grind size of 80% of particles passing 75 microns or smaller which is typical in conventional milling processes.
  • Importance of Gravity Separation: The test work also showed that prior to flotation, gravity separation improved recoveries for silver and gold significantly.
  • Next Steps: With multiple targets planned for drilling, the Company will initiate continued metallurgical test work as more zones are drilled.

Metallurgical Test Work Program Summary
A scoping-level metallurgical test program was designed by Ausenco Engineering Canada Inc. and completed by Base Metallurgical Laboratories in Kamloops, British Columbia. Metallurgical testing was managed by the Company and focused on refining multiple flowsheet options by conducting head sample characterization (assay and mineralogy) tests, cyanide kinetic leaching tests, rougher flotation tests, gravity tests and assay characterization of test work products (e.g., concentrates and tails).
Two representative composite samples of mineralized, epithermal-related vein material were selected from drill holes that intersected the Queen Vein, central to the Consolidated Extension Target. MOG-1 was a 32 m composite sample from hole MOG22-05 drilled north of the Consolidated mine stopes and MOG-2 was a 20 m composite sample from hole MOG22-04 drilled south of the Consolidated mine stopes. Samples were analysed for head assay grades which returned 208 g/t Ag with 7.48 g/t Au (MOG-1) and 261 g/t Ag with 4.0 g/t Au (MOG-2).

Table 1: Metallurgical Test Work Results
The composite samples responded well to cyanide leaching tests. Whole ore leach tests yielded silver recoveries of 67.4% and 64.2% and gold recoveries of 86.9% and 82.7%. Producing a gravity concentrate prior to leaching increased the silver recoveries to 73.7% and 73.8% and gold recoveries to 90.6% and 90.3%. Recoveries for silver and gold were optimised by adding a rougher flotation circuit after concentrating the sample by gravity. Leaching of this product yielded silver recoveries of 96.2% and 97.9% and gold recoveries of 97.8% and 97.7%.
Flotation and leaching of the gravity concentrates have strong implications for maximum recoveries of silver and gold from the Queen Vein. Future work will also focus on investigating grind sensitivities on silver and gold recoveries. As additional targets and veins are drilled by Summa, additional metallurgical test work will be initiated from new zones.

At Base Metallurgical Laboratories, the samples were ground in a 2 kg Rod Mill to a 75 µm k80 grind size.
Gravity testing was conducted by centrifugal Gold Concentration using a Knelson MD-3 concentrator followed by cleaning on a Mozley C-800 Table. The gravity concentrate was assayed for gold to extinction and the tailings from the Knelson and Mozley table were retained for cyanide leaching.
Rougher flotation tests yielded four rougher concentrates and a final rougher for assay of gold, silver and sulphur. Products from flotation were retained for leaching.
Leaching tests were performed directly on whole ore samples as well as samples from gravity concentrates and rougher flotation tailings and rougher flotation concentrates. Tests were completed in bottles on rolls which included four kinetic solutions measured after 4, 6, 24 and 48 hours of leaching. Products from the tests were assayed for gold and silver.
