2023.03.20 21:21 Yeehaw461 Am I (22NB) crazy for wanting to break off a four year relationship with my bf (23M) because he won’t move in with me?

Where to start. I (22NB), and my boyfriend (23M) of four years have recently graduated college. During that time we wanted to mutually move in with one another, but since his parents pay for everything, and did not want him moving in with me, they said if he did then they’d cut him off financially (in more words). So we held off.
He just graduated a few months ago, and has one more year of college because he needs a certificate to go into the field he wants. He already has his BA if that makes sense. Sorry, i'm a mess and I hope I’m explaining all this properly.
Anyways, we have been planning to move in together for years now, and started making tangible plans 5 months ago. Keep in mind I don’t want to move to the city we’re moving to, I’m doing it because it’ll further his career if he’s in that area because there’s more work there and all that.
He told me he told his parents we were moving in together, and I found out like 2 days ago while talking to them that he hadn’t mentioned it. Now they’re pissed off and don’t want him moving out. Apparently the plan between him and his parents was he’s living with them for the next 7 years so he can save up for a down payment on a house. I was never, in the 4 years of our relationship, told of this. Keep in mind, we both were planning on getting engaged and married by 25/26.
Anyways, I asked him what his plan is and he “doesn’t know” and will obviously “move in with me if I’m going to break up with him if he stays at his parents place”. A few people are saying I’m being selfish and not doing what’s right for him, but other people in my life are more pissed off for me than I am for myself. So I’m a mess and everyone’s saying different things
TL;DR: his parents don’t think it’s a good idea for him to move in with me so he’s rethinking things and after months of planning backing out of our agreement

2023.03.20 21:20 SourceExotic7493 Would you be mad about a client Googling/Researching session topics?

I have OCD and sometimes I just need to know something immediately and can’t wait until the next session to ask my therapist (and sometimes I don’t feel comfortable asking her) so I spend a LOT of time on Google and read lots of books, research articles and blogs. Yes I know it’s a compulsion and I do want to work on it, but I also do think there is value in connecting with other’s experiences and ultimately learning more about myself. I want to have a discussion in my next session about something my therapist brought up in the last session and I should disclose that the discussion resulted from stuff I read online.
Would you be annoyed by this and want your client to get their information and ask you directly or would you see it as the client working hard on their own to improve outside of session and appreciate that they’re trying?

I'm over weight. I work 3 nights a week and I have decent food on my break I treat it as my lunch time as I sleep the next day and miss meals. I walk about 8 miles when I'm in work and about 3 or 4 miles on any other day. I am a busy mom of 5 and have no time for joining a gym. What can I do?

2023.03.20 21:20 MCHammer06 401k situation. How to proceed?

Bear with me a minute here. I left my employer on 3/17 and started a new job on 3/20.
My previous employer was acquired by another Company effective 01/01/23. The 401k plan under the old operating company is being terminated. The funds were not rolled into the acquired company’s plan, as there was a significant delay (compliance testing and FMV adjustment before old plan could be terminated and funds disbursed). And then I decided to leave and had them pull my distribution paper work.
So, my funds are currently still invested in the old plan. I’m not eligible for my new employers plan until after 90 days of employment. How can I get my funds into my employers new plan? Can I?

2023.03.20 21:20 DriftingKing Did I get bait and switched?

I worked at this company previously as an intern twice and did a very good job (received lots of recommendations). Because of that, they interviewed me for a backend developer position that opened up. It is in the US and I would be working remotely from Canada. As I was through most of the interview process, another positioned opened up that they thought I was a better fit for. It was an entry level full stack role, but as I enjoy doing backend more it did not seem as good to me. I was also told during the interview that I would be doing mainly database work for the first 6 months and a lot of boring work.
It was then agreed upon that I would receive 80k USD as compensation (the job posting has a range of 70-85k USD) but it was later revised down to 80k in CAD which is less than 60k USD. I feel like they are trying to pay me a lot less because I am Canadian and the wages here are a lot lower.
They then tried to justify this by saying I would be trained to a full developer within a year or two and receive an 8% pay increase, which still seems like a very low amount considering it is an entirely new position.

2023.03.20 21:19 miarrial Oil falls to three-month low on inflation worries, U.S. bank shutdowns

NEW YORK, March 14 (Reuters) - Oil prices dropped over 4% to a three-month low on Tuesday after a U.S. inflation report and the recent U.S. bank failures sparked fears of a fresh financial crisis that could reduce future oil demand.
Oil pump jacks are seen at the Vaca Muerta shale oil and gas deposit in the Patagonian province of Neuquen, Argentina, January 21, 2019
Brent futures fell $3.32, or 4.1%, to settle at $77.45 a barrel, while U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude fell $3.47, or 4.6%, to settle at $71.33.
They were the lowest closes for both benchmarks since Dec. 9 and their biggest one-day percentage declines since early January. In addition, both contracts fell into technically oversold territory for the first time in weeks.
Shockwaves from Silicon Valley Bank's collapse triggered big moves in bank shares as investors fretted over the financial health of some lenders, in spite of assurances from U.S. President Joe Biden and other global policymakers.
"The market is either anticipating a recession in the future or it could be that one or more funds had to raise cash and reduce the risk on their books because they are concerned about liquidity after the bank failures," said Phil Flynn, an analyst at Price Futures Group. He has not heard of any fund in trouble.
U.S. consumer prices increased solidly in February as Americans faced persistently higher costs for rents and food, posing a dilemma for the U.S. Federal Reserve whose fight against inflation has been complicated by the collapse of two regional banks.
"Crude prices are falling after a mostly in-line inflation report sealed the deal for at least one more Fed rate hike," said Edward Moya, senior market analyst at data and analytics firm OANDA.
Data showed the U.S. Consumer Price Index (CPI) rose 0.4% in February from 0.5% in January. That slight slowdown in consumer price growth prompted investors to price in a smaller rate hike by the Fed in March.
The Fed is now seen raising its benchmark rate by just a quarter of a percentage point next week, down from a previously expected 50-basis points, and delivering another hike of the same size in May. The Fed's next two-day meeting starts next Tuesday.
"The Fed’s tightening work is not done just yet and the chances are growing that they will send the economy into a mild recession, and risks remain that it could be a severe one," OANDA's Moya said.
The U.S. central bank uses higher interest rates to curb inflation. But those higher rates increase consumer borrowing costs, which can slow the economy and reduce demand for oil.
Tuesday's crude price decline also came ahead of U.S. data expected to show energy firms added about 1.2 million barrels of oil to crude stockpiles during the week ended March 10.
The American Petroleum Institute (API), an industry group, will publish its inventory data at 4:30 p.m. EDT on Tuesday and the U.S. Energy Information Administration at 10:30 a.m. on Wednesday.
Limiting crude's price decline - at least earlier in the day - was a monthly report from the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) projecting higher oil demand in China, the world's biggest oil importer, in 2023.
Chinese consumers, unshackled from COVID-19 restrictions, are returning to hotels, restaurants and some shops, but they are choosy about what they buy, disappointing hopes for an immediate post-pandemic splurge.
OPEC, however, left unchanged its forecast for world oil demand to increase by 2.32 million barrels per day, or 2.3%, in 2023.
The International Energy Agency (IEA) will publish its monthly report on Wednesday. IEA/S

2023.03.20 21:19 Beneficial-Ad98 The Life of a Lebanese Teacher

Working more than 40 hours a week for about 150 USD a month has been a miserable experience for me. I lost all passion for teaching, and feel burned out even though it’s only been a year. I have to live with my parents and I’m barely saving any money. I am seriously considering a change of career in the coming year, but it worries me to see the state of education in the country, even at the private school level.

2023.03.20 21:19 bexyrex Great with everything except dogs barking behind fences

So I have a 2yr old staffie mix that I've had since he was 12 weeks. He's very very well socialized. I took him to puppy classes, dog park etc his whole life basically. He does great off leash. He couldn't tolerate daycare bc he's a Velcro dog and I work from home. He's fine being left alone for hours tho so I know he doesn't have separation anxiety and he did great during the two weeks we left town last year and had a friend watch the house.
we're still working on a few issues on our walk mainly pulling excessively. All around he's a good dog. The only issue is that he's been having considerable anxiety lately around dogs barking at him thru fences. Especially a couple of bully dogs in the neighborhood who rush at us at the fence. One of whom is like 20 damn lbs but acts like a madman and lives right around the corner and the other who is 65+ a few blocks down the road named Blutho who I consider his mortal enemy. Otter responds with whining now at the sound of dogs barking and he gets lungy and barky around dogs who lunge and bark.
I have decided that Bluthos street is off limits bc any time he's out it sets Otter back.
He's not reactive in any other ways. He's a mildly frustrated greeter but even as I'm sitting here at the coffee shop he's watched two dogs go by and just kinda leaned in for a sniff and stayed where he is. But walking oh my God walking is just starting to feel stressful bc of how many dogs in this neighborhood are just left in their front yards to yell at people and other dogs.
I have been clicker training and rewarding for looking but not reacting. For looking at dogs then looking away but depending on the day sometimes it's just too much right of the bat and he's gets lungy and barky. Other times he'll go the whole walk chill and only a little whiny until we get a block from home and there's some random dog and he gets all frustrated and reactive. This is driving me nuts and I'm doing my best with him but sometimes I'd like to just walk and not be thinking about other dogs 24/7. Other days I just don't bother with a walk and just go to the dog park.

2023.03.20 21:19 f2pmyass just a post about ideas/minor changes I would like.

D4 team have a solid game. They just need to do some tweaks and change up the Dungeons a bit and lower the legendary drop rates. I am hoping the game becomes a little bit more mechanical like PoE. I found the game being a little too simplistic in my opinion. I want a middle area between PoE and D4 currently. And I hope with seasons and being a live service they can act on this and keep this game popular for years to come.
Minor things I would like / like changed
- The Old Map in the middle of your screen I would like back. I didn't like the top right corner map and it was too zoomed in no details
- The zoom of the character should be able to zoom in even more like in Lost Ark to see your whole character and also see the world in 3D makes it more engaging and vast to see the world you're in in 3D. (photo mode) something like that.
- Maybe a little more zoomed out the screen when in combat. The zoom out at the hub I believe is the perfect zoom compared to the combat zoom it is currently at right now.
-Legendarys dropping too frequently
- I believe consoles don't have the option to move the HUD in the middle of the screen (heard from my friend playing xbox)
-Maybe have the the level XP bar not be right above the hud and instead have it all on the lower part of the game. (like old games, WoW).
-Have meaningful seasons to have people wanting to come back and at the same time not be able to compare season 1 with season 4. (something like Fortnite)
- I heard debuffs weren't showing. This would be really good to have above your HUD
-Possible HUD Editor ? Being able to turn off the map on top right
-Have a little health bar above your head would be nice too.
-Maybe having a housing system/guild housing to hang out. ( good way to monetize furniture and stuff)(another way of making money) just something else to do in the game instead of not playing the game.
-(A idea) Possibly having a little pop up when hovering over dungeons in the map that show the best times for that dungeon in the season. To be honest this might not work as dungeons are not really different enough but this is just a thought.
-More details on dropped items. I have to pick it up to see what it is. I want to hover over it with my mouse and see the stats and the picture of it.
-Have something similar to CoD MW2 where the season has you doing challenges that unlock cool skins, For example there's an event in cod that has you doing pretty semi challenging challenges for each Weapon variant right now and doing all of them rewards you some cool looking skin.
-sorc needs to be nerfed asap....
My biggest concern is the end game and wondering if it's literally just repeat dungeons. I want to keep playing the game but also have more avenues of things to do end game besides dungeons for example maps in Lost Ark or an endless mode or boss challenges with good mechanics at every 20 levels or something. But we'll see when the dev stream comes up.

So far the game as is right now solid 7/10.

2023.03.20 21:18 Obsessed_with_shows Will Joe help this character? (Includes S4 spoilers)

Now that Joe is back with his real identity in New York and he’s rich… I wonder if he’ll restart sending rare books / money to Ellie.
We all know Jenna Ortega was supposed to make a comeback but she was busy filming Wednesday… Considering that Ellie wanted to work in the film industry, I’m assuming that she would be aware of worldwide news including Joe Goldberg mysteriously being found alive and surviving the Madre Linda murders. She could even potentially be the one taking him down…
Anyone else also hopes that Joe restarts helping Ellie and that she makes a comeback in S5?

2023.03.20 21:18 One_Statistician_499 Calling all parents

Hi there, my husband and I have recently had a child. We love our daughter very much. I have been NC with my nmom for right about two years. She found out about the pregnancy and birth from other family members. She is a very nasty, hateful person, and me and my siblings have no contact with her due to years of verbal, physical, emotional abuse. She is now love bombing me and my husband and giving fake apologies and saying that she is genuinely sorry for what she did and that she just wants a relationship with her grandchild. My husband and I have decided that there’s no way in hell that’s going to happen. Her flying monkey family members are trying to get us to see things from her point of view. So I’m just curious, are there any kids out there with narcissistic parents that let their nparent have a relationship with their grandchild. I’m just curious how it worked out for you. Thank you!

2023.03.20 21:18 c_will Kripparian's thoughts on Diablo 4.

Kripparian released a video detailing his thoughts on Diablo 4, going over some of the positives and negatives. You can find a summary of his thoughts below:
Overall, he said the game has a lot of issues right now, but with proper tuning and significant changes to the dungeon mechanics and UI, he said he can see Diablo 4 potentially being a "9 or 9.5 out of 10" game by season 2 or 3.

2023.03.20 21:18 dont_drop_dat_phone When tap fails.... "You didn't charge me twice, did ya?"

When boomers tap to pay and it double beeps (tap didn't work) but they're already halfway across the store.
I yell over at them "Tap didn't work, you gotta insert!"
They come back all pissed off. "What?"
Me: "Tap failed, it wants you to insert."
Them: "....I have to pay again?"
Me: "You haven't payed yet, it didn't go through at all the first time. Just gotta insert"
(They insert, and put their PIN in. Of course, on the third try because the other two times they took too long and it timed out and I had to re-initialize the card machine.)
The receipt comes out, I hand them their receipt.
Them: "You better not charge me twice, I'll be keeping an eye on my credit card statements."
This has happened soooo many times in the past 5 years.
Credit cards have been around for 70 years now. Why don't people STILL understand how they work? This is basic stuff. They also act like I personally receive their money. I don't make commission. I make minimum wage, boomers. I'll never step foot into a home that I own because of what they did to the world & economy. Also Google "how do credit cards work". Fuckers.

2023.03.20 21:18 EeveeonE- I'm curious to know what people think of that episode of Futurama - The Problem With Popplers

I'm rewatching the Futurama series because as a kid I never understood a lot of the jokes or story, now I do and I realize it's genius, for a comedy sci-fi. I'm up to Season 2, Episode 15, which is called "The Problem With Popplers."
I've of course been vegan for 3 years, and a lot of what's here doesn't really hold up, and won't ever hold a candle to the episode "Lisa the Vegetarian" in The Simpsons.

The story of the episode: The Planet Express crew discover some plants on an uninhabited planet that taste so good they couldn't stop eating them, and bought some home. They ended up managing to make a franchise out of it. The food was named "Popplers". A organisation called M.E.A.T (Who defends animals) protested to them directly saying what they're doing is murder. After denial, they all went back in, and some time later Leela discovered Fry left some out Popplers in Planet Express HQ, where Leela then discovered them growing, one of them was alive and looked at her, and I think spoke? This causes her to express concern, as well as the Poppler themself. Everyone was convinced after the Poppler expressed their own concern, which prompted the crew to begin advocating against cooking and eating them. M.E.A.T. did nothing essentially until a debate in the episode, and much later on, and the crew's own protests weren't doing anything either. Though for some reason they didn't work together. Eventually it's discovered the Popplers are young from the alien planet, Omicron Perci I8, who were nursing on an empty planet. And their uh, alien-people selves, threaten to eat the humans if a punishment can't be decided, and the rest of the episode is kinda tame from that point, where they agree to eat Leela who was the first to discover and eat their young. At the end, the Poppler who first spoke to Leela saved her, and made some comments about why we eat, saying revenge shouldn't be one of them which is good actually.

However, the sour note of the episode really is how joking it was, I know Futurama isn't always trying to be serious, but it somehow makes it frustrating rather than funny, except the Hippie at the end, that was a good gag. But damn, the irony in the end was interesting, but I don't feel right about this episode. Maybe I'm overreacting and hyperfixating. I'm curious to know what others think about this episode. It's rare to see shows tackle this topic. In my experience anyway. I generally don't like the message or humour in this. Also M.E.A.T seemed like a parody of PETA or something, painted in the bad light everyone else paints them as.

2023.03.20 21:18 DistinctAd7233 Drying more than one fragrance at a time

Alright....putting a stupid question out there, but wanted to hear opinions. I dry my bath bombs (small batches) in a plastic bin with a dehumidifier since Florida humidity and bath bombs don't mesh well. Always one fragrance batch at a time. If I tried drying multiple fragrances together, would the smells mingle in the bombs as well? I just don't want to make a bunch of mixed up bath bombs, and wanted to hear opinions.

2023.03.20 21:18 plankton_boy Anyone else using Aster (host) + Moonlight (client)?

I've been using Aster v7 for a while now on my host PC. It allows two instances of Windows to run at the same time on the PC, using two users with each their set of peripherals. Similar to a VM, except it's a clean split in two that dynamically assigns the CPU+GPU ressources to each user depending on the intensity of what they're running.
Combining Aster with Moonlight is pretty awesome. We let the PC host run 24/7 and either user can connect their session remotely at anytime on a shield or android tablet.
There are some issues though. Moonlight will only work on one of the two users, and it is a pain to configure which user gets streamed. The other user can use Parsec though, so by having one use Parsec and the other user using Moonlight, it's essentially like having our own cloud computers for two people using a single tower PC.
Anyone else crazy enough to be using something like this? It was a pain to set up but runs pretty nicely now.
The only reason I haven't switched to sunshine for moonlight is that I'm afraid it'll break everything related to Aster. Technically Moonlight+sunshine could be updated to better implement multiseat (or even multi monitor setups, it's a pain in the ass to configure moonlight for a specific window).
If you're using Aster+moonlight, have you switched to sunshine? Is it still working smooth?

So I'm building a PC for the first time and would appreciate any comments on my part list, linked below (sorry if the formatting goes crazy, first time posting).
Mainly to be used for gaming as a priority, already have a Dell S3222DGM, so won't be going above 1440p.
Looks like I'll need to upgrade the BIOS on the motherboard to get it to work with the 12400F, but I think that is doable without a CPU on the MSI Pro B660M-A (WiFi version is cheaper than the non-WiFi version at time of posting). Does anyone have any experience of this or could confirm that it is possible, as I don't have another CPU to do it with.
I've done a bit of research on the CPU, motherboard and GPU, the rest is just cheap as possible at the moment, and changes depending on what PCPartPicker is recommending.
I'm in the UK for any price comparisons, and aiming for around £950 total.
Any comments on suitability, compatibility of parts, or foolish things I've overlooked would be great.

2023.03.20 21:18 Psychedelic-Yogi Using Your Ketamine Session to Build Confidence!

(...or any other positive emotion.)
One benefit that surprised me, at the very beginning of my therapeutic-ketamine journey, was the surge of confidence. I had struggled with this for as I could remember, often faking it, swinging back and forth in self esteem -- lots of social anxiety, etc.
I could feel this surge of confidence within the ketamine state. I could experience it, get to know it, learn it. It isn't always easy to carry something positive out of the psychedelic journey and into everyday life, and of course that was my goal -- to carry that awesome confidence out beyond the ketamine session into my life!
I'm still working on this (the pendulum still swings, though with lesser amplitude) -- Here's what I've learned.
Building Confidence Using the Ketamine Trip
1) Build awareness of your body.
Not just the obvious aches and pains, but particularly where your emotions show up. When you are angry, where is the clenching, the gripping, the discomfort? ...When you're excited or jealous or anxious or fearful or loving? Where in your body do you feel it?
This alone is a beneficial yoga! When emotions spiral out of control, there is often a feedback process between thoughts and feelings in the body that is below the conscious awareness. Once you become aware of the emotions in the body, it is much easier to let them go with the breath.
2) Learn how your emotions and breath are connected.
When an emotion arises, notice where it manifests in your body and your breath. A good practice is to inhale deeply, as you notice the areas in the body where you feel emotions -- and then exhale long, slow, and complete, as you let that clenching/holding go.
These are general practices that help reduce emotional suffering. Now the specific state of confidence:
3) Become intimate with the feeling of confidence.
There are several ways to go with this -- Try these from top to bottom:
-- Use your imagination to summon the feeling of confidence! (This is how a "method actor" might work.) If you can do this -- If you can feel the confidence in your body, then skip to (4).
-- Use your memory to summon an event/time when you felt confident! Go there in your imagination. Close your eyes and try to make the memory very vivid. If you can feel it in your body, then skip to (4).
-- Empathize with someone else! Is there an athlete or actor or speaker or musician you admire? Find an image or clip where they are clearly manifesting confidence -- and imagine you are them at that moment.
4) Breathe with this feeling and get to know every subtlety.
Close your eyes and scan points up and down your spine (in yoga these places where emotions are felt are called "chakras"). Become a student of the feeling of confidence -- Practice it!
5) Imagine conducting this practice within the ketamine state.
Stoke your intention, build your motivation! Every time you perform the practice of summoning confidence and turning inward, to really get to know the feeling, imagine that you are practicing during your next ketamine session. Practicing the act of imagination in general is very powerful!
6) Practice within the ketamine state!
Whatever technique you've been using -- remembering, imagining, empathizing -- practice during your session!
If a negative emotion rears up, notice it -- find where it manifests in your body (like you've practiced!). Inhale as you focus on the feelings in your body -- Exhale and let everything go.
In the space -- the pause -- Invite confidence to emerge! Feel it in your body, encourage it to remain. Don't be deterred if thoughts continue to arise -- that's what the thinking mind does! Keep returning your attention to your body and breath, keep breathing and letting go...
And keep summoning confidence, learning how it feels, inviting it to remain, becoming intimate with it...
Make confidence a new habit to replace the old self-downing!
I hope you find this beneficial. These practices are body-mind technologies, many of them derived from yoga -- There is no appeal to faith or authority. It should all make sense! If some particular aspect doesn't make sense, ask me about it.

2023.03.20 21:18 CivilElevator3516 Should I feel guilty?

My stores inventory is tomorrow. Because of this, I was asked to come in today, even though it was my day off. I told them that I was fine with that since I will be using some PPTO to cover a day later in the week that I had requested off for. I told them, however, that I could only stay until four, which is when my shift usually ends. They said OK, but pushed a little bit to try to get me to stay later. When I told my team leads that it was time for me to leave for the day, she seemed very upset and didn’t even thank me for coming in, even though I didn’t have to. eventually I would like to become a team lead myself, but I feel like my current team lead, and the other management is too disappointed in me for not being able to stay late to help for inventory and therefore, I’m afraid that they will never give me a team lead spot. Besides this, every day for the past week, I have been asked to work overtime to help prepare for inventory. I was told it was optional. I happen to have a very busy lifestyle outside of work, so I was only able to stay late one hour for one day this week I did cut my lunches a half hour short though so that I could give at least a little bit of my time my team lead doesn’t seem to appreciate any of this and it’s treating me, like a bad employee for not being able to give more overtime hours to the company. Is this something I should feel guilty about?
