2023.06.11 00:27 Thefalcon86 Why are my withdrawal’s different from a few years ago?
So, in 2015 I went into detox for alcohol abuse. I’d never tried any benzos, but diazepam is the go to withdrawals drug and so I was put on them and got through detox fairly unscathed. I decided I wasn’t going to drink for a while after that experience, but I had this niggling attraction to this drug they were giving me in the detox. And so I went to my GP and asked him about diazepam with an excuse about going overseas and not wanting to drink, and I needed something to calm my nerves. I got them with a lot more ease than anticipated and so 50x5mg were consumed in under 7 days and life was good. No withdrawals, no depression, nothing. I did this every few months for years, with no real noticeable side effects. Fast forward to 2019. Ordering a bottle of Xanax online, also consumed within a week or so (50x2mg) - still no real withdrawal, comedown, anxiety or sleepless nights. But then with the 3rd bottle I ordered at the beginning of 2020 - (ate them all in around 7-10 days), I started to feel a bit strange on the first day without. On the first night without them I really started to feel some anxiety. And the BANG! It was like the suppression of all these feelings came back at once and my brain exploded! Fireworks of thoughts and emotions for a good 10 hours straight whilst a laid down and sweat and panicked and cried. I was so scared I called my mum and she drove 2 hours and took me to a doctor who gave me some diazepam and I eventually tapered off everything without too much more pain.
Now every time I take benzos (a little more responsibly, but far more than advised) I get fairly serious withdrawals! Valium, Klonz, Ativan, Zans, all give me a fairly long, horrible withdrawal! Up to 3 weeks with relatively little use!
What the hell is going on????? Am I just more aware now?? Is something different I’m my brain??
*I’m now a few months clean, in NA and I’m loving sober life. I can’t believe I didn’t give this a shot years ago! Numbing, hiding and not embracing feelings has been no life at all 😘
**I’m just curious is all.
Ps. I know I’m silly for doing what I did. I don’t need you to tell me. Just some answers thanks

2023.06.11 00:27 bird1434 My Pearl Islands Character Rankings/Analysis Borneo
Carrying onward with my full series rewatch, I'm posting some character rankings as I go as a way to gather some thoughts! And boy am I excited to talk about Pearl Islands.
Just to clarify, these rankings are based solely on entertainment and value to the story. Impressive play often goes hand in hand with entertainment for me, but I’m not going to always rank better players higher. (I am going to be working on some posts analyzing gameplay down the line though)! I also am basing these rankings solely on the season in question, so returnee appearances have no effect.
Lastly, I accept all hate with open arms! I’m posting these for discussion to make this rewatch more interesting. Hit me with whatever you’ve got.
-- 16. Nicole Delma (16th)
Nicole is basically only remembered for Jeff’s creepiness over her having no bra, and she really doesn’t do much else that memorable. She does cause some drama at the first vote, and a mildly messy first boot is better than a total dud. 15. Ryan Shoulders (15th)
Skinny Ryan does play an important role in the first few episodes, as a narratovoice of reason explaining why everything the Morgan tribe is doing is totally dysfunctional. Still, he doesn’t do it an overly engaging or funny way, and he doesn’t have much else to offer to the game. He does seem like a really nice guy though, and at least he brought “DIE, JERKS” into our lexicon. 14. Michelle Tesauro (14th)
She shows glimpses of potential as a fun character, and I just generally enjoy Michelle, but she really doesn’t get much of a foothold in the game or on the show. 13. Tijuana Bradley (7th)
T is really strange because she’s remembered as a hot head for the village scene, but for basically the entire rest of the season she’s extremely kind and uplifting. I can’t really say I blame people for having that perspective though, because yelling at the lady in the village is essentially the only interesting thing she does. 12. Trish Dunn (13th)
She goes to make a big move way too early, but you can just tell from what we see that Trish was a shrewd gameplayer with a good mind for the game. Trish is one of those classic premergers with major potential, and I would have liked to see what a Jon/Trish duo could do post-merge, but she’s not around long enough to leave a big impression. 11. Ryan Opray (9th)
Ryno is this high in the rankings solely on the strength of the Pelican Pete scene, which he comes off super fun and super cool. Otherwise, he’s basically just a faceless Morgan with a few vaguely charming scenes. 10. Darrah Johnson (4th)
She might quite literally be the least dynamic person that’s ever been on the show, but Darrah is so dull that it comes all the way around to being somewhat entertaining. 9. Osten Taylor (11th)
He’s a huge presence in the premerge, but I can never tell whether I like what Osten brings to the show. The edit wants us to think he’s a total douche, and he doesn’t help himself much either when he’s threatening pelicans with machetes and telling Nicole to flash Panamanian locals. Still, Osten seems generally like an OK guy, but he’s more memorable than he is entertaining, and on a repeat watch he doesn’t hold up as a standout on this cast. 8. Shawn Cohen (12th)
Shawn is someone I like more on every rewatch. He’s gone from annoying douche to annoying, but hilarious and buffoonish douche for me. Thank goodness he goes when he does, but Shawn causes a lot of conflict while he’s around and I really enjoy what he brings to the premerge. 7. Christa Hastie (6th)
Christa is really an ideal sort of side character. She has some fun relationships, some fun rivalries and she pops in like three times an episode to do something extremely bizarre. Christa is also just so weird, but she is just enough of a normal human being that every time she does something super weird it still catches me off guard. 6. Burton Roberts (5th)
For a guy that’s originally the fourth boot, it’s crazy how intelligent Burton sounds when he talks about the game. He’s not the most dynamic personality, but he gives really good confessionals and plays a crucial role as the brawnier half of this season’s best duo. 5. Andrew Savage (10th)
Plucked directly from a 1980’s sports movie, Savage is just larger than life on this season. He gives amazing confessionals and his die-hard, passionate leadership of the hapless Morgan tribe is entertaining and admirable if a little misguided. Drake is flooded with characters from top to bottom, while Morgan is really Andrew and the Savagettes, and he’s so dynamic he can carry any scene no matter how mundane. 4. Lillian Morris (2nd)
Lill is moreso the human embodiment of chaos stuck in an emotional older lady’s body than an actual player in the game. She’s so annoying so I get why people wouldn’t like Lill, but she’s responsible for so many spectacular moments that I can’t help but love her. 3. Sandra Diaz-Twine (1st)
The highest compliment I can pay to Sandra is that she would still be a top tier character if she went out at like 12th. Luckily she also happens to be one of the best players of all time, so what the fuck, we get to see Sandra get loud too for an entire season. 2. Rupert Boneham (8th)
Without a doubt the greatest casting in the history of reality television, Rupert was made for Survivor Pearl Islands and Survivor Pearl Islands was made for Rupert. I know he becomes a caricature of himself later, but through his first run, the swashbuckling, stealing, fishing, dress-wearing, gentle giant is such a completely perfect Survivor character. Every scene that Rupert touches turns to pure gold (maybe besides his final words), and every time I rewatch this season I’m reminded why America fell in love with this man.
- Jon Dalton (3rd)
Every hero needs a villain, and fittingly, as we get one our best heroes to date, we most certainly get our best villain as well. Jon’s pure evil in gameplay and in confessionals is unmatched in Survivor history, and he makes such a brilliant villain because he’s also unbelievably good at the game, and generally a step ahead of the heroes. That is until it all comes crumbling down in the most embarrassing way possible, capping off an absolute once-in-a-lifetime story arc for a villain in Survivor.
-- Overall Thoughts
In all honesty, Pearl Islands was my favorite season coming into this rewatch. Nothing was going to change that, and shocker, it didn't.
Basically every episode sans the Ryno one would be the best episode in most other seasons, but for PI its just banger after banger. That largely comes down to the perfect casting, with Rupert and Fairplay leading the way as our main protagonist and antagonist, and both playing the roles spectacularly. That's not even mentioning the absurdity that is Lill, or maybe my all time favorite player in Sandra.
PI doesn't take itself too seriously, but still delivers fluid and exciting gameplay interspersed with these amazing characters. From top to bottom, Pearl Islands is everything Survivor should be.
Dates watched: 5/21/23-6/7/23
Best episode: 7.6 — "Me and My Snake" // Worst episode: 7.9 — "Shocking! Simply Shocking!"
Current season rank: 1/7

2023.06.11 00:26 FacebookBlowsChunks Screen recording experts, I need your advice. Using 4th gen Intel with the HD4600 iGPU if that helps.
Yeah, I know I wrote a novel, but I just want to make sure I get it ALL out there.
Before I get started explaining the issue, I'd like to add to this that BEFORE I had reinstalled Windows 7 over a year ago due to the failing hard drive, I could easily screen record at 1366x768 at 60FPS (Using ANY screen recording program, OBS, VokoscreenNG, ShareX etc). Heck, even 1080P would record fine at 30FPS on this thing ( I don't remember if I tried 60FPS). And that was with a failing HDD. I've now been using a Crucial MX500 SSD, and everything's been much faster, well that is except for screen recording, quite the opposite now.
But now.... No matter what settings I use, the screen recording gets extremely choppy with the slightest of objects on the screen. Both OBS and VokoscreenNG, they are lagging even set at 30FPS. I pop open a browser window and scroll even a little, the frame rate drops to 21FPS. CPU usage is at a constant 60% - 85% on all 8 cores.
On OBS, I've even dropped my desktop resolution down to 800x600 and then the Canvas res to 800x600 (output same). I've tried bitrates from 2500 Kbps to 9500 Kbps. I've tried QuickSync H.264 and also X.264 encoders. Target usage, I have set to Fast. I've even tried Very Fast and nothing changed. I've disabled Aero in Win 7. Just having Aero on causes severe choppiness and the frame rate drops to a constant 20FPS without even having anything on the screen. This was never the case before. I could have Aero on and it would do a full screen recording at a steady 30FPS. I never had to disable it. I'm not trying to record anything heavy at all. Just a browser window in Firefox. But it doesn't matter if Firefox is open or not, the recording is still lagging a lot and bogging the CPU.
I really can't figure out what could be the issue. I have set it to use the QuickSync hardware encoder and it makes absolutely no difference on how much CPU or choppiness there is. Almost seems like it's not using GPU encoding at all.
It's an older Dell Latitude E6540 laptop with the i7-4800MQ (with the HD4600 iGPU and a secondary AMD (ATI) Radeon 8790 GPU). 16GB RAM and a Crucial MX500 1TB SSD. Have the latest video driver that's available from Dell. Have MOST Windows updates aside of the ones you want to avoid, and maybe ONE or TWO.. which I think was for .NET Framework but that one always fails to install.
Not sure if this is the right place to ask. I didn't want to ask in the OBS sub. My posts always get auto deleted over there or disappear for some reason. And last time I asked them about an issue a year ago (on their Discord), all they said was "your computer is too old and CPU is too slow blah blah". Yes I KNOW it's old and slower. But I know what it's capable of doing and well... it's NOT doing it. Seriously I don't know what I'm missing here.

2023.06.11 00:25 Dramatic_Macaroon416 Predictive Popcorn: An Innovative Strategy for Active Learning
Hi guys, I’ve been delving into the concept of predictive processing and finding ways to incorporate it into the classroom. One idea that emerged from this exploration is called "predictive popcorn," drawing parallels with popcorn reading. This strategy encourages students to collaboratively construct and refine definitions for new concepts, initiating from their existing understanding and gradually developing it through cycles of prediction, discussion, revision, and integration. The approach not only aids in comprehending the topic at hand but also fosters critical thinking and the acceptance of making and learning from mistakes.
Take, for instance, introducing fractions to your students. You could kick-start with something fundamental like "A fraction is…" and then allow students to predict and add the subsequent words. The initial definition may be whimsical or even make little sense, but it provides a foundation for everyone. It helps identify pre-existing ideas or misconceptions about fractions that can be later clarified during the lesson.
As the lesson progresses, you can revisit this initial definition, refining and expanding it as students gather more knowledge about fractions. This cyclic process of prediction, discussion, revision, and integration not only assists in better understanding the subject at hand but also renders the entire learning process more engaging and memorable.
Here's a step by step example:
- Introduction and Concept Definition (Embracing Mistakes):Initiate by introducing the new topic or concept to the class. Start a group definition; incorporating an error or nonsensical aspect is perfectly fine and helps make students comfortable with the idea of making mistakes.
- Predictive Popcorn Round 1 (Iterative Learning & Connecting with Prior Knowledge):Using a round-robin format, each student contributes to the definition or explanation, building a cumulative group understanding. Encourage each student to predict and add to the definition based on their current understanding. Prompt them to link this new information with what they already know.
- Group Discussion (Integrating Feedback, Metacognitive Awareness & Structured Peer Feedback):After the group has created a full definition, take a pause for group discussion. This discussion should facilitate students in evaluating the accuracy of the group definition, identifying errors, and refining understanding based on peer feedback. Guide them with structured feedback prompts such as "What do you agree with in the definition?", "What do you think needs revision?", and "What would you add or remove?". Urge them to reflect on their thought process - how they arrived at their contributions and their reactions upon learning they were right or wrong. During the group discussion phase, you also can divide the class into smaller groups or pairs.
- Individual Revision (Iterative Learning, Metacognitive Awareness & Connecting with Prior Knowledge):Now, allow students to individually revise the group definition, incorporating the feedback from the group discussion. Instruct them to reflect on their learning process, comparing their understanding at the start of the lesson to their current comprehension.
- Teacher-Led Instruction (Attentional Balance):The teacher then provides a comprehensive explanation of the topic, giving the correct definition and a detailed explanation. Students contrast this new information with their individual revised definitions, observing the differences and updating their understanding.
- Predictive Popcorn Round 2 (Iterative Learning, Repetition & Connecting with Prior Knowledge):Following the teacher’s instruction, start a second round of Predictive Popcorn. This time, students apply their updated knowledge from the teacher’s instruction and their personal revision to predict and contribute to a new group definition. During the group discussion phase, you can divide the class into smaller groups or pairs.
- Final Comparison and Discussion (Integrating Feedback, Metacognitive Awareness & Structured Peer Feedback): Conclude the lesson by comparing the group definitions, individual definitions, and the teacher’s definition. Engage in a discussion about the evolution of understanding from the start to the end of the lesson.
Here are some of the benefits of using this method in your classroom:
It promotes active learning. Students are actively involved in the learning process, rather than passively listening to a lecture. This helps them to better understand the material and to retain it longer.
It encourages critical thinking.Students are forced to think about the material and to make predictions about what they will learn. This helps them to develop their critical thinking skills.
It fosters a collaborative learning environment.Students work together to create and refine the definitions, which helps them to learn from each other and to build relationships with their classmates.
It's fun!Students enjoy the challenge of predicting the next word in the definition and of working together to create a complete definition. This makes learning more enjoyable and more likely to stick.
Here are some additional tips for using the predictive popcorn activity in your classroom:
Start with a simple concept.When you're first introducing the activity, it's helpful to start with a simple concept that students are already familiar with. This will help them to understand the process and to get comfortable with making predictions. Be flexible.The predictive popcorn activity can be adapted to fit the needs of your classroom and the level of your students. For example, you can adjust the amount of time students have to make predictions, the size of the groups, or the number of rounds you play. Encourage discussion.After each round of the activity, take some time to discuss the students' predictions. This will help them to clarify their understanding of the concept and to learn from each other. Celebrate successes.When students make good predictions, be sure to celebrate their successes. This will help to motivate them to continue participating in the activity.
In general I think it’s a good way to learn concepts and at the same time is a good way to learn meta cognitive learning skills. Also it encourages a growth mindset, a belief that students’ abilities and understanding can develop and improve through effort and perseverance
Does anyone have any suggestions, questions or ways to refine it?

2023.06.11 00:25 ifeelyoubraaa THIS belief is what has actually helped me heal.
I went through the darkest, deepest desperation from about 2-7 months, it was so Acute. You know when you physically stub your toe and the pain is so heightened and acute for about 15 seconds? Then you also know what it’s like to have these UNREAL emotional moments that are completely unbearable but they also tend to last for only 1-2 min max. I lived in that acuteness for weeks at a time. I remember calling both of my parents telling them that I’m not sure how much longer I can endure and hang on.
It was so pathetic, I’d just wail and cry and felt utterly hopeless until one day I literally yelled out to God “THIS CANT BE HOW ANYONES EXPECTED TO LIVE THROUGH- HELP ME”
And the one Monday morning I woke up and felt conscious in my body and my mind. I was no longer at the complete mercy of my mood, intrusive thoughts, or feelings. It was like my life during depression was a video game that I was existing in and had no agency, but then once it lifted a little bit then all of a sudden I was able to function better.
The key has been for me is to remind myself that I have a choice in every single brutal moment. When I’m overwhelmed with grief about the past or the future, I tell myself, “you can cry and drop into dark feelings about this and it would be completely valid, but what life do you want? Your grief is justified, but do you want to live a life where you were simply at the mercy of your circumstances?” The answer is usually no. So then comes the CHOICE. I see the reality of my situation, but what if I chose to believe that I deserve to experience joy? Doesn’t mean I will feel it right then and there, but it forced my brain not to accept the label of “sad”. It forces me to take the moment captive and CHOOSE my response. I could cry for 3 hours and hate myself, or I can push through the physical pain, and the emotional pain of inadequacy, and say out loud “ I AM JOYFUL. I have many friends. I have a life if influence. The burning pain I’m feeling right now is directly burning a path for me to walk through to the other side of the field. I’m not religious, but the imagery of Moses being courageous and probably terrified, depressed, hopeless, inadequate as a leader but having to uphold the responsibilities of thousand of people he just lead away from their homes sticks with me. He had the enemy right behind him and an ocean in front of him. He was royally fucked and probably had every reason to accept that he was a failure. But then he called out to the creator (God, Buddha, self, universe, nature, love -whatever) asking for help, then made a fool of himself while thousands watched by walking up to the waters edge, and he put his staff into the water by faith alone. THE FUCKING SEA OPENED UP. Everyday, people are creating impossible pathways from the deepest despair. I have major depressive disorder and I hate what it’s stolen from my life, but I am now choosing to stop believing that it’s not forging a path through. We have wisdom and knowledge and peace that the happy-go-lucky people never will. And truth is just as important as grace.
Just like you said, I can’t end my life to then traumatize my family and friends and never accomplish my purpose- I can’t knowingly hurt those I love. So then what? It’s my choice. Nelson Mandela could’ve just gotten out of jail to simply hide from people in the bush. He had every reason to feel cheated, inadequate, worthless, lost. But he chose to carry on and he legitimately changed the world.
I don’t have it figured out. In fact, today I’ve been scared that I’m getting sad and am overwhelmed by circumstances and feel totally inadequate, but I’ve now just spent 20 minutes writing this out instead of just scrolling and I’m feeling better already. The choice is ours. Giving up the expectation that it’s not going to hurt one day is key, but it’s also comforting that everyday gets easier if we believe it does.
HOPE. Hold On, Pain Ends

2023.06.11 00:24 SouljaIsSpy03 [WEEK 1 UPDATE] Monotype Legends Tourney!
Hey all! Last time we met, I was looking for players to start a tourney where multiple nuzlockers duke it out representing each type. Over the past week we've hit our player capacity (and even got some spectators in the mix!) So without further ado, here's an update on each team.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Normal (DarthDoom)
Normal might be a simple type, but looks can be deceiving! DarthDoom really made it work in their White 2 run. Quincy the Raticate is their star player, having recently wiped the floor with Elesa. Fire (HopRockets)
Our Fire-type contender's really bringing some heat to the tourney! Playing X, HopRockets had a really bold strategy against Grant, which was to get Katy Perry the Litleo to get a Noble Roar in on Tyrunt so Johnny Cash the Charmeleon could switch in safely. Sadly, though, this resulted in Katy Perry's demise. She walked so the Man in Black could run. Last I checked, he's searching the Lost Hotel for a Heat Rotom. Water (BigNasty)
Time to cool off a bit and take a look at BigNasty's Shield run! Already, they're at Wyndon Stadium, but getting there was not without sacrifice. Recently, BigNasty had to bid Sardine the Barraskewda adieu, as the interviewer Double Battle on Route 10 brought a challenge. The foe's Noivern set up a Tailwind allowing Togedemaru to outspeed and KO Sardine with a Zing Zap. Thankfully, BigNasty has more physical attackers on standby, and Sardine will be remembered as they close out this run. Grass (JackPokemaster)
I forgot to mention, each contender is allowed one wipe to recouperate and try a different strategy. This is precisely what happened with our Grass-type contender, Jack, in his X run, who lost all but Burn Me the Burmy to a duo of Furfrou. Burn Me would last a little bit longer, but not by much. Last I heard, he's getting back on his feet and hopes to finish strong. Psychic (TheBenji)
Benji's been setting the bar pretty high, as one of our first contenders to finish their run! In X, they had a really close final Lysandre fight, but used some really fun strategies involving sleep and Eva the Malamar's Topsy-Turvy! Now I'm not playing favorites here, but I'd love to see them go far in the final tournament. Ground (GenlockeGene)
You might recognize this guy, he's the coordinator of the Masters 8 tournament on Discord! But here, he's our Ground-type representative, playing Platinum! Last time he checked in, he unfortunately suffered the loss of Swiper the Gligar to a critical Shadow Ball from Fantina's team. Here's to hoping the rest of his team can hold strong! Amaradis (Poison)
With their nickname theme being numbers, (and numerous Britney Spears gifs of you know exactly what song in the discussion channel) Amaradis is well on their way to a great run of Y. Last they checked in, they defeated Korrina and acquired the Rumble Badge. Keep on staying toxic, Amaradis! Rock (Saltwater)
Saltwater's Rock run of Shield ended tragically at the Stow-on-Side gym, only having 3 team members left. However, as I stated earlier, one wipe is allowed to recouperate and try new strategies. As of recently, they've beaten Nessa again, only this time, their Drednaw survived, who will likely be a key member in the fights to come. Flying (Cenny)
Cenny hasn't checked in with team progress too much, but they're still just as worthy of the gold medal as everyone else! In their Emerald run, they recently beat Wattson, but unfortunately had to sacrifice Loon the Golbat. I can only imagine they've caught many more Flying-types since, though! Bug (Kemical)
Our second Shield contender, Kemical, has certainly been showing the other contenders that bugs are not to be messed with. They're currently about to challenge the Champion Cup with a formidable team, including Ronin the Scizor and Pennywise the Golisopod. Good luck, Kemical! Ghost (Garrapto)
Garrapto is yet another contender who tragically lost their first attempt of Shield at the first Marnie fight due to an unlucky flinch. (Morpeko can really be a pain in the neck.) Nevertheless, they're proudly rebuilding and we hope Garrapto can still finish strong! Dark (Redbred)
X is a very popular game among our contenders, and Redbred is yet another contender running the game. In fact, she's already beaten the League as well! Unfortunately NoFroggie the Drapion needed to be sacrificed in order to get WrongAmphibian the Krookodile in a safe position to sweep Diantha's team. Considering their Greninja is nicknamed Frog, you can probably guess their nickname theme by now... Dragon (Cabbage)
You might think running such a powerful type in a game like Shield that has numerous Dragon encounters would be easy, right? Wrong. It comes with many trials and tribulations, and Cabbage is no stranger to this treatment. A bloodbath occurred when Cabbage challenged Melony, and tragically lost Blueberry the Noibat, Apple the Appletun, and Pineapple the Druddigon. However, they've since rebuilt, and even have a powerful ally in the form of Mango the Dracovish on their side! Hopefully Cabbage pulls through and takes Leon down! Steel (Avery)
Avery's run of the Kalos region met a tragic end in Reflection Cave, a notorious run-killer. Normally when contenders wipe, they stay on the same game, Avery's run is a special case, as they decided to run Violet instead! Last time they checked in, they had acquired a Gimmighoul and a Rookidee. Hopefully this run goes better for them! Fairy (KinglerChamp)
Kingler's run of Ultra Moon using only Fairy-types was unfortunately over quick. The first attempt fell short at Ilima, but Kingler rebuilt and managed to cook up a smart strategy to take him down. Totem Raticate was the next hurdle, but Kingler got unlucky and lost his Cutiefly to an unsuspecting Yungoos with Strong Jaw-boosted STAB Hyper Fang. His starter Popplio additionally fell in the Totem fight itself. Finally, his remaining Mime Jr fell to a Cottonee's critical-hit Mega Drain, eliminating them from the tournament. He does however stream these runs, and you're welcome to check them out here!
Unfortunately, we haven't heard anything from our Fighting, Ice, and Electric-type contenders yet, but hopefully next week, that will change. That's all for this weekly update, and we'll see you all in 7 days, give or take!

2023.06.11 00:24 Helpful-Nobody8080 Daily journal: Day 1
I’ve read a few places that while trying to quite p*rn, it helps to keep a daily journal. So I figured why not here where I can get support/words of encouragement/ridiculed for my problems. Here’s a bit of background for ya, I (35M) having been watching adult content now for about 20 something years now (can’t remember exactly how long, it been awhile). I feel like it’s gotten really bad now over the last 6-7 years but I think I hit my low point yesterday. It’s been just over 24 hours now and I feel pretty good but I do now it’s only going to get worse before it gets better.

2023.06.11 00:23 gender_is_a_scam How do I know if speech therapy is useful and if I'm too old for it to be useful
Sorry rather long post 😣😣😣
Hi, I have diagnosed dyspraxia as well as dyslexia. I also present alot of asd and adhd Traits and am in diagnosis process.
I've come, mostly In recent time, to the realisation I have issues around speech, and they cause people to struggle to understand me.
One piece of context to get out the way is my accent alone is likely Communication barrier. My parents are african(south african and Zimbabwean), but moved to Ireland before I was born. I've grown up and been raised in Ireland, but my parents accents are strong and I while I went to a local creche(day care), I also spent alot of time with my dad, thanks to that I officially have a fucked up accent=) /J, It's not the worst but it just dosent sound Irish, or south african for that matter. It also means alot of Irish people just don't understand me despite me living here all my life! 😤
But my actual speech issue are the following
- I struggle to string sentences together even after planning it out in my head. This issue is rather inconsistent it often is significantly more prevalent when I'm trying to be intentional with my words.
- I speak at incredibly varying speeds, many way too fast, even if asked to slow down I may find myself unable to.
- I struggle immensely to control my volume and will change volume frequency while speaking, by extention how high or deep of a pitch I speak in.
- Inconsistent usageged of words, or basically synonyms(or even just words I associate with the initial word) interchangeably in the same sentence unintentionally(causes unintentional confusion). Example using runner and than trainer or say using pen and then pencil.
- Miss ordering sentences, saying something like "enjoy the dog, hope you get to adopt the new summer" instead of "enjoy the summer, hope you get to adopt the new dog"
- Saying the opposite of what I mean, like saying, "can you load the dishwasher" instead of you "can you empty the dishwasher".
- Frequency Mispronouncing and/ changing how I prononce words i already know
- Inconsistent/occasional stuttering
- Often just not being able to put my needs in to words, and taking long pauses(easily 10 minets sometimes) to just vaguely find them.
- Genral difficulties wording things in understandable way and explaining things I know mentally how to explain. Struggles with coherence.
- Bad control over tone, often coming off with an inappropriately high or low amount of emotion.
- Occasional unintentionally slurring words, not drunk or high or anything like that
I'm pritty sure dyspraxia can be a cause of speech difficulties, although I don't know if this is part of it or if it's my dyslexia or why if happens.
For the most part I can communicate what I'm trying to say if I'm at my best(not overwhelmed or anything). Although I'd still say it's an issue for me as it's can be very distressing when people dont understand me wich dose happen alot daily even just at home, I can't stand repeating myself and it in extreme cases causes me to be completely unable to talk for hours to days, On the milder end of things it will just heavily frustrat me making my move vulnerable to shut down later on.
I'm thinking that I might benefit form some sort of speech therapy, although mabye it's not worth it as I'm already a teenager not a child or toddler, although my dad said he'd be willing to set it up if I think I need too go. Is their a point in going at my age or is it too late. Is above even enough to call it an issue.

2023.06.11 00:23 Holiday_Work372 My friend (22F) acts annoying and overbearing and I (22F) don't know if I should talk to her or just take a French leave from that relationship
I've known that friend for maybe 6 months. We don't talk that much, we see eo at uni maybe twice a week. For me it's just a friend. But her behavior is quite concerning and even more annoying First of all, she calls me her bestie. It was weird for me but I thought, okay, maybe some people don't pay that much attention to terminology. But after some time, I realized one thing. Along with her, I got to know two other girls. As they're in the same group at uni, I assumed they must have been friends in 3 for a while. We would go out together etc. However, after some time I realized these two stopped being that willing to go out with us. At first I thought that maybe there's something wrong with me. But I paid more attention to the issue and I realized they would still call me just to talk, want to go to some events with me etc and at the same time, the friend I'm talking about in that post started acting more and more weird and annoying First of all, she's very overbearing. That overbearing when you hear that word, it's not even that hard in your head. I literally can't go to the toilet alone, she will follow me and speak to me even from the toilet cubicle. Stuff she's speaking about is also something that might be annoying She's nerdy and proud of that. I don't mind nerdy people, I'm kinda similar. But she's almost obsessed. She can speak to you for 20 minutes straight about a series she has watched - you can't even listen to her after a minute and don't even remember the title anymore. She doesn't really pay attention to the fact people don't give a single fuck about these stuff, even though after some time they get that tired their only responses are 'wow', 'mhm', 'okay'. However, it's something acceptable. The thing that bothered me a lot was a political discussion we had some time ago That day I was sick. I had to go to uni because I had exams to take but I was still feeling unwell. She wanted to go to eat, I accepted, even though I wasn't in the best condition to spend time with anyone. My bad, I know, I'm still working on setting boundaries. She perfectly knew how I was feeling, I even heard stuff like 'I'm so sorry, you must be so tired'. But who cares when she started that hard and annoying af discussion about transsexuals! Maybe she did mention stuff like 'oh we don't have to speak if you don't want to', 'hope you won't be mad at me', 'hope you don't think I'm transphobic' but I failed and kept discussing, even though I felt terrible. Ofc her opinions were transphobic and controlling af, her attitude was sth that especially bothered me - telling me that 'she knows I support LGBT but she just wants me to know some stuff (because I'm a silly lamb who has never seen any arguments of that other side and I have never thought about stuff deeply)', 'she broadened her horizons and hopes I also did (the thought it's sth like a transaction - 'I will change (or pretend to have changed) some views and you have to change yours')' and 'if you can't give me any good example, why is it real?' (idk maybe because I'm on a fucking antibiotic and I know that even if I gave you that example, you would still find a way to prove me I'm dumb?). I was confused af after that whole discussion, as many of her views were hurtful for transsexuals. Even though I failed to protect my boundaries by getting into that weird discussion, I still did stand for myself and for the people I support. However, I find her behavior quite rude and tactless, so did my friends I vented to about that whole situation. After all these situations, I'm not even surprised people run away from her. I have a feeling it might be a vicious circle for her - she struggles with finding friends because of her behavior, when she 'catches' one she behaves like that, they still manage to run away, then she finds another one and it keeps going. I feel it might be good for me to distance from her a little, find excuses just like my friends did, but I'm wondering if there's any possibility to help such a person? I can't even predict how will talking to her end up like. I have no clue if it causes aggression or self-reflection, or where's the boundary of a change - I won't hide that, many people might feel uncomfortable with her views and the fact she seems to be obsessed with them, she brings political issues up in half of interactions you have (another half are her monologues about fantasy books or netflix series) and likes saying stuff that might trigger some groups (and at the end of the day, she's the victim because bad lefties take her freedom of speech away from her, because she can't misgender people nowadays). On the other hand, I still remember people can have their views and we shouldn't force changes on them (I know she lowkey tries to do that on me but I'm not going for that). I know that post is long and I'm sorry for that. I needed both to vent about that and I need some other opinions on what is the best to do there, as I'm kinda torn between protecting my boundaries and the fact I'm aware her situation is shitty as well, loneliness is shitty. What should I do? TL;DR: my friend has controversial political views she keeps speaking about and forcing on others for almost all the time and her behavior is very overbearing. I don't know if I should try to help her by talking to her or just take a French leave from that relationship

2023.06.11 00:23 squazyleader My Grandparents said I'd Have Somehwere to live after Selling the House. Turns out that's not the case
Context: I grew up with my grandparents and there is a complex relationship between them and my dad (their daughters husband). Also, my family is pretty loaded. The total family collectively owns 2 separate islands. )
Currently living at the house is my dad, my sister, and me.
My grandparents are selling my childhood house. Obviously I'm a bit sad about that but such is life. I'm not upset about that.
My grandparents are real old and in a nursing home so my uncle is dealing with the logistics and communicates with us living at the house through my brother.
Through the whole selling process we've been given very very few details but been ensured that we would all have somewhere to live. My sister just graduated high school and is heading to college, my dad has been looking for a job and essentially running the house hold for a good while, and I am starting my junior year in college, starting a (paid) internship in the area where the house is.
Just recently we were given more details. Turns out the current plan is:
-I live with my gf who lives in government funded housing.
-My sister lives with one of her friends (whose parents have not been contacted about this plan)
-Something will be figured out for my dad (apparently), with my 23 YEAR OLD BROTHER paying for his housing from his savings.
Funny wrinkle in their plan: My girlfriend lives an hour and a half away from my job where my shift starts at 7AM.
The house is getting sold on July 1st, which I found out a few days ago, was actually pushed back from the original move out date which was ON MY SISTER'S GRADUATION DAY, which would have been a week after I came back from college.
We have been given absolutely no time to prepare for this. They've told us not to worry about money and just focus on what we've been doing saying we'll have a stable foundation. Now, at the 11th hour, it turns out none of that was true.
I was let go from my job recently at my college (which didn't pay great to begin with) due to budget cuts and they assured me that things would be fine and to focus on my schooling and getting an (paid) internship. So I believed them.
If my car broke down they would get it fixed. My car just broke down, my dad mentioned this to my uncle (who is the point person for these kinds of things) and he said "Well do you have $2,000."
(Little side note. He also called my dad, who did the job of a live in nurse for my grandparents for an entire year and a half, being on call 24/7 without pay. "replaceable" because he wanted some actual professional help to help out my elderly grandparents. Then got mad when my sister asked him what he was doing to help)
So it looks like I'm gonna be either out of a house or out of a car or both, while they expect me to still be able to work the internship in a field that I love and desperately want to go into at a company that I dreamed about getting an internship for. (Don't worry. They haven't forgotten to mention how I'll probably mess up the internship)
Another note: The reason that they want to sell the house so soon is because it would make the most money if sold early in the summer.

2023.06.11 00:22 Born_Ad7045 Am I "fake trans" if I only really started to think about my gender/*really* want to become a girl after finding online transgender resources?
One of my biggest fears since I've (23 AMAB) started questioning some 3-4 months ago is that I've somehow "convinced" myself that I could be trans, conditioned myself to want to be a girl or something...and that short of waiting literal years in what feels like purgatory to me any step taken towards transition would be a literal disaster or something.
I say this because gender wasn't really something that I thought about too much. I certainly didn't dream about being a girl every day (and didn't dream at all at night), or have recurrent questionning episodes, or stole my mom/sister's clothes...let alone thought *I* was a girl.
I did fantasize about being a girl from time to time for sure, and was jealous of women's bodies in general. I kind of felt shafted that life had given me a penis instead of a vagina, and did have recurring crossdressing fantasies that I rarely induged (and forced fem stuff that I *never* indulged or mentionned). I was a bit sad that I'd never get to experience life as a girl or be a lesbian...but all that stuff was kind of in the background, never too distressing or frequent, so I always thought of it as either a kink, or normal curiosity. And while I wasn't a massive fan of my body (disliked my facial hair and always had this background feeling that my chest was wrong somehow), that's stuff I just dealt with and figured was a normal part of not liking your body (something which tbf I had made massive strides in by exercising). There was other small stuff (dislike for facial hair, hating/being unable to use urinals, hating being shirtless, wanting to be able to lactate, mostly female avatars in games, hating clothes shopping...) but nothing that can't be explained away as something else.In any case, my teens are mostly just one bluvoid in my mind, as I've been dealing with varying degrees of depression since I was like 13.
I didn't exactly hate being a man, and I guess I liked my physical strength and being able to not worry about my personal safety. I'm not exactly the manliest of man out there...but frankly I kinda despise the "bro"-y types and was always more of the quiet introverted type anyway. A nerd, for lack of a better term. I stayed in the shadows, did my own thing.
Had you asked me last year who I was last year what I identified as, I would have told you I was a cis man. Had you dug a little deeper I would probably just have told you I was secure in my masculinity. Mostly, explicit thoughts of me being a girl didn't really enter my conscious mind much.
But now I'm really not sure if that's true anymore. I moved out for college last september, and by the time the semester's end approached I got this urge to buy a dress...which I did, figuring that I lived alone and could do what I wanted. Getting that dress and trying it on awoke something
in me, not quite sure what, and I started thinking about crossdressing more, or becoming a femboy in private. A few weeks later I started wondering (for what reason I don't know) if I could be trans and found online ressources such as this subreddit, the GDB, Nightlingbug's twitter thread, turn-me-into-a-girl.com
, and all the other usual stuff that gets passed around.
To put it bluntly, that's when it all went to sh*t.
I didn't resonate with everything I was reading, but I certainly did feel very seen by some of the stuff I was reading (exactly what I don't remember). I remember spending about 5-10 minutes with my hand between my head, feeling like suddenly I had "figured out what was wrong with me", like my life suddenly made sense somehow, and feeling the weight of it all come crashing down.
It was fascinating really. I knew that trans people existed, but beyond the usual stuff thrown around by popular media and what can be seen in porn that was just about all I knew. When the topic came up the the family dinner table every so often, trans people were either painted as deeply broken that deserved nothing but pity, or as the usual "crossdressing old man with beard" cliché that my mom in particular seemed to adhere to.
But the idea that I could be trans, that I could be a woman if I wanted to seemed too powerful to ignore somehow. I saw what HRT could do to people, and I wanted it. I didn't want to stop thinking about it. I wasn't entirely sure if I *really* wanted to be a woman, but there was at least some part of me that wanted it, even if its exact motivations were unclear. I got obsessive. My depression worsened considerably, as did my anxiety. For a time my libido and appetite were almost non existent. When I started feeling suicidal I pumped the breaks and got medical help, which certainly helped a lot.
I would have originally told you I didn't have dysphoria. However, since then I've started to feel increasingly uncomfortable with various aspects of my body (facial/body hair, hairline, chest, feet, genitals). Having my body be seen makes me feel uncomfortable. I've gotten to the point of crying about not being a girl several times, and spent many a days feeling melancholy about not being a girl. I even prayed to wake up as one one evening, despite not being religious or anything...I just felt compelled to and figured it couldn't hurt. I keep feeling jealous when I see women outside, wanting their body, clothes, hair... I find myself dissociating more frequently too.
But to be honest, I didn't use to feel this way before. I have no idea what response I would have given you if you had asked me about the button test, or the reverse button test. I didn't feel any dysphoria, and even now it's hardly a constant thing. I didn't see myself as separate from other men, just not very masculine. Even my actual desire to be a woman fluctuates a bit, and while I would definitely press the
button now and like the idea of being called she/her... I don't want people to treat me differently either, and I don't necessarily feel super feminine either. I like to imagine myself as a full woman in a decade and kinda feel dread at the idea of being a man forever, but also feel anxious/uncertain about boobs. I get worried that reading about all this has put ideas into my head that aren't really mine and that I've somehow made myself feel or want things that I don't really feel or want, that the "internet made me trans", for lack of a better term. That I only so desperately want to be a woman because I've painted myself an idealized, escapist version of what life as one would look like.
I've started experimenting a bit (earrings, nail polish, dressing fem in private, shaving my legs/arms/body) and loved all of it (kinda feel bad when I can't), but that's gender expression, not ID. I've started seeing a supportive therapist since March (altho I kinda feel fake and undeserving going by a fem name/pronouns in such a setting). I'm going to see an IRL support group in a few weeks, but one of my worries is that I'll see a bunch of people who have clearly suffered with this all their lives while I just toy around with the idea. I worry I'm not trans, but I also worry that these thoughts aren't mine...and that I'll either figure that out somewhere down the line (potentially with a lot of pain and/or embarrassment and needing to tell everyone i was wrong) and just have to find a way to live with myself and how empty it all seems. I don't know if I can do that.

2023.06.11 00:22 dopeyJaguar74000 Looking for a Mini Fridge? Here Are Some of the Best Ones to Buy in 2023
Hey Reddit, I'm in the market for a mini fridge and I've been doing some research on the best ones to buy in 2023. I thought I'd share my findings with you and see what you think.
A mini fridge is a small refrigerator that can fit in tight spaces and offer many benefits. Some of the benefits of a mini fridge are:
- Space saving
: A mini fridge can fit under your desk, on your countertop, or in your closet. You can use it to store snacks, beverages, leftovers, or even cosmetics. A mini fridge can help you save space and declutter your kitchen or room.
A mini fridge is easy to move around and transport. You can take it with you when you travel, relocate, or go camping. Some mini fridges are designed to work with car adapters, so you can plug them into your vehicle and enjoy cold drinks on the road.
: A mini fridge can make your life easier by providing you with quick access to food and drinks. You don't have to go to the kitchen or the vending machine every time you feel hungry or thirsty. You can also use a mini fridge to store food that you don't want to share with others or that needs special temperature control.
- Energy efficiency
: A mini fridge consumes less electricity than a full-sized refrigerator because it has a smaller capacity and a simpler design. A mini fridge can help you save money on your utility bills and reduce your carbon footprint.
- Extra storage
: A mini fridge can supplement your main refrigerator by providing extra space for food and drinks. You can use a mini fridge to store items that you need more frequently or that you want to keep separate from the rest of your groceries. A mini fridge can also come in handy when you have guests over or when you host a party.
: A mini fridge is cheaper than a regular refrigerator because it has fewer features and components. You can find a mini fridge that suits your budget and needs without breaking the bank.
- Aesthetic value
: A mini fridge can add some style and personality to your space. You can choose a mini fridge that matches your decor or expresses your taste. Some mini fridges have retro designs, colorful finishes, or unique shapes that can make them stand out.
How to Choose the Best Mini Fridge for Your Needs
With so many options available on the market, how do you pick the best mini fridge for your needs? Here are some factors to consider:
: The size of the mini fridge depends on how much space you have and how much food and drinks you want to store. Mini fridges come in different sizes, ranging from 1.1 cubic feet to 4.4 cubic feet. The smaller ones are ideal for storing a few cans or bottles, while the larger ones can accommodate more items and even have separate freezer compartments.
: The features of the mini fridge depend on what functions you want it to perform and how convenient you want it to be. Some features to look for are adjustable shelves, reversible doors, interior lights, temperature controls, defrost options, door bins, crisper drawers, ice makers, and locks.
: The style of the mini fridge depends on your personal preference and the look of your space. Some styles to choose from are freestanding, built-in, double-door, single-door, retro, modern, stainless steel, black, white, red, blue, etc.

2023.06.11 00:22 Turbulent-Abalone-18 Fingerprint not working after replacing Pixel Display
My little brother broke his new Pixel 7 Pro only a few weeks after I got him it during Christmas, 2022. Finally got the screen replacement about a month ago and replaced the screen a few days ago.
My little brother came to me earlier today saying that his fingerprint isn't working. He showed me what was happening and when he tried using fingerprint, it would pop up an error and displaying a link that takes me to this website: pixelrepair.withgoogle.com
. I followed step-by-step on what it said, but it repeatedly failed halfway through the installation.
I read through a ton of articles and ended up following a few telling me to install Android Studio and install some Android USB driver thing. I followed every step and tried the above link again but to no avail.
I spent about an hour and a half updating the phone's software and I don't think it was previously, but it is currently running Android 13. Tried all previous steps again but nothing. I don't want to Reset the device itself cause, well, that's a very last resort option. I've seen quite a few articles saying it didn't work even after a reset either so.
Additional notes (will include more when I can think of some):
Developer mode is on, and I've enabled USB debugging.
Phone is up-to-date (not on any sort of beta release)
Connected to Xfinity Mobile
Screen replacement was an OEM Screen on the IFixIt website. Fingerprint sensor came with the new Display.

2023.06.11 00:21 ImCosmicBTW I had an idea for Conquerors Haki, found out they said it won’t be added ever, so I’ll show you all my idea I guess.
Conquerors Haki Idea Conquerors Haki should, in my opinion, be added to Blox Fruits in the next coming updates, and here is my idea on how it should work and how it will be obtained.
HOW TO OBTAIN CONQUERORS HAKI I think Conquerors Haki should be able to be obtained through some sort of trial/quest in Blox fruits. However, this quest should have requirements to be unlocked. The first requirements should be 1.Have full body Armament Haki unlocked. 2.Have max Observation Haki dodges unlocked. 3. Have a minimum of 2.5 million Bounty or Honor. Also, the minimum level you should need to be to be able to unlock this quest is level 2000, that way the player will be pretty experienced in the game to be able to unlock such a power. Now, I will talk about how Conquerors Haki should work and what abilities it should have.
CONQUERORS HAKI ABILITIES I think that Conquerors Haki, when it is obtained, should work as a level system, with there being a max of 30 levels, and it will use a XP system too. When you first obtain this Haki, it will start at level 1, and you will be able to level it up by using it against both NPC's and enemy players. However, using it against NPC's will give much less XP than against enemy players, who will give a lot more XP. Now how will this ability work? Let me explain. So, you will be able to activate this Haki by the press of a button on mobile, and a key on PC. When pressed, it will let out a blast of Conquerors Haki in a small range, this range will get larger every 10 levels, level 1-10 will be a small range, 10-20 will be a medium range, and 20-30 will be a large range. If a player or NPC is caught in this range, they will only be killed instantly if they are 1000+ levels below your own, if they are 1-499 levels below your own level, they will only have a effect pop up on the edge of their screen, this effect will happen when your Conquerors Haki is in levels 1-10, when it gets to levels 10-20, if you are caught in the range, the effect on their screen will be a little bit larger, but your enemies will be stunned for 1-3 seconds, and the Conquerors Haki user will be able to control who they use this Haki on if they choose to, if they choose not to choose specific people to use it on, it will be unleashed in a range around you like normal. Also, the player who has this Haki will be able to use it more often, the cooldown for this will be 45 seconds in levels 1-10, 30 seconds in levels 10-20, and 15 seconds in levels 20-30. Finally, when a player's Conquerors Haki is at 30, the max level, it will be given a new type of ability, known as, Advanced Conquerors Haki. This type of Conquerors will only be able to be unlocked by these requirements. 1.The user has maxed out their normal Conquerors Haki to level 30. 2.The user has 50-100 kills with their Conquerors Haki. 3.The user is at the current max player level in Blox Fruits. If these requirements are all met, a trial will be unlocked for the player. This trial will consist of a puzzle, and boss fights where you have to use Conquerors Haki to defeat the bosses. If completed, the player will be bestowed with Advanced Conquerors Haki. This will open up a new power for the user. It will allow the user to imbue their weapons with Advanced Conquerors Haki. Think of it as a much stronger version of Armament Haki. If you apply this Haki to your weapons, their attack potency will increase by a lot, but there is drawbacks to this power, when you imbue a weapon with this power, it will last for 15 seconds. After the duration is done, you cannot use Advanced Conquerors Haki for a full minute. However, there is also a level system to Advanced Conquerors Haki. There will be 5 levels to it, when you first obtain this type of Haki, your level will be at 0, each level will increase the duration of your weapons being imbued with Advanced Conquerors Haki by 3 seconds. So at level 0, the duration will be 15 seconds, at 1, 18 seconds, 2, 21 seconds, 3, 24 seconds, 4, 27 seconds, and at max level of 5, 30 seconds. Also, the way to level up your Advanced Conquerors Haki will be the same as leveling up for normal Conquerors Haki, the more kills you get with it, you get XP, but leveling up your Advanced Conquerors Haki will be much harder than leveling up the normal version. Once fully mastered, this will give the player a sense of satisfaction after mastering both types of Conquerors Haki. Also, this is another idea I had for normal Conquerors Haki, there could be clashes of Conquerors Haki between players when it is used at the same time. The winner will be dependent on whose Conquerors Haki is a higher level. If they both have it at the same level, it will be down to a 50/50 chance for both of them, and the loser will be either killed, or stunned for 5 seconds. Another idea I had is for Advanced Conquerors Haki clashes, like Roger and Whitebeard's clash in the One Piece anime. This will be down to who has a higher mastery on their Advanced Conquerors Haki. If both players have it at the same level, then it will cancel out each others attacks, and stun both players for 5 seconds. That concludes my idea of adding Conquerors Haki to Blox Fruits, I wrote all this out before I learned that the developers have said they will most likely never add Conquerors Haki to Blox Fruits, but I just thought it would be nice to have all 3 Haki types, you know?

2023.06.11 00:21 Drakolf The Blueblood and the Wolf:
The College of Whispers was an old, venerable establishment with a pedigree nobody could scoff at. It was a large four-story building with beautiful gothic architecture, held classes on everything from healing to dark magic- even Necromancy was handled, considering the Headmaster was a Lich.
As one of the most prestigious schools in the entire world, it angered mage nobility to no end that it was accessible to all, and not just them.
They loved to blame the Headmaster's 'eccentricities', but I personally loved it. It gave me a chance to get out of the stuffy old manor that my bastard of a father called a home. All the better if he disowned me, since I hated the expectations he put on me.
The dorm was cheap, any student could take on a part-time job and pay for it with money to spare, so against my father's wishes- I simply told him I couldn't possibly see myself running the family business if I didn't know how one functioned from the ground up, an argument he grudgingly accepted.
The only dorm available at short-term notice was one that another student was renting, there was a small list of stipulations- no loud noises, no spell practice inside the dorm room, must be okay with dogs, no addictive substances... It was fairly standard so I took the opening.
Connor was a little leery of having a blueblood sharing a room with him. Bearing a nasty scar on his face and a generally disheveled appearance, his concern was justified. I did do the snooty rich guy thing for all of five seconds before dropping a solid, "This is really fucking nice."
The tonal whiplash I established got him to like me almost immediately, we exchanged names, and I let him know that I was paying my own way, and that I was doing so via part-time job. "I absolutely loathe blueblooded society, let me be a nasty little gremlin who does whatever I want." I once remarked to him.
He was shy and soft-spoken. When I asked him where his dog was, he went quiet and said, "He's not here yet."
"So, not a Familiar, then." I mused.
"Something like that."
I was already well-trained in most forms of magic- as to whether or not I could use such magic depended heavily on the tools that I had. I had a head start in that regard, passively listening to the lectures and answering correctly when the professors thought I wasn't listening.
When asked how I knew so much, yet was taking such a basic class, I simply said, "My father hired sycophants and idiots. Useful sycophants and idiots, so I undoubtedly have holes in my understanding. I look forward to the day that you stump me, Professor."
Which he did, about two weeks into the class. He asked me of the fourth use of Azagar's Third Reversion Trigram, and I bluntly asked, "There's a fourth use? Fascinating." This did get a lot of laughter, but I did not mind.
I stuck with Connor whenever he was comfortable with my presence. There were a handful of times that I noticed him being picked on, I would simply approach and- in the haughtiest voice I could muster- "Pardon me, but you are presently insulting my dorm mate and friend, so if you would kindly scuttle on..."
This did lead to a few duels, which I invariably won, and I made it clear, "Anyone who dishonors my friend dishonors the Vandergalt family."
The incidences grew less and less, but Connor always said, "You didn't have to so that, I'm used to it."
"Nonsense, I am happy to stake the honor my family name in your defense- not that I care about such honor."
This had gotten a laugh from him,
One morning, he knocked on my door and spoke with me. "I hear Alaran is hosting a party in the dorm house he's staying in, you should go, try to enjoy yourself."
"Will I see you there?" I asked.
"Maybe." He replied noncommittally. "It's an all-night party, so you won't need to return tonight."
This struck me as odd, but I said, "Very well."
I did indeed participate in the party, yet it was just an excuse for other Bluebloods to flaunt their wealth and prestige. That didn't stop me from spiking the refreshments with a little alcohest, the potent spirit would make the party a little less formal.
"Ah, Graeme Vandergalt, a pleasure to meet your acquaintance." Spoke a person whom I had no interest in speaking with. "Where's your little servant?"
"Honor dictates that a gentleman does not strike a lady." I said. "It says nothing about this." I proceeded to pour my glass of juice over her head, which got raucous laughter from everyone else. "Pardon me, miss, I appear to have spilled my drink. Allow me to get some water."
I used magic to conjure some water into the glass, which I then proceeded to pour over her. "There." I said with a smile. "Good as new."
Was it disproportionate? Absolutely. Was it satisfying? Abso-fucking-lutely. Bluebloods like me could get away with things of that nature, so I feared no reprisal. Nonetheless, I left before the alcohol started kicking in.
I returned to my dorm under the light of the bright, full moon, and enjoyed the serenity of a night-time stroll. When I entered the dorm room, it was empty. I headed for my room when I noticed Connor's door was ajar, which was odd as he never left it open.
I pushed the door open, and blinked when I saw, of all things, a Werewolf. It was sat on the sofa provided for company, and when it looked at me, I saw the scars and understood.
"Oh, Connor." I remarked. He let out a soft whimper, clearly afraid that I was going to attack him. "Have you eaten? I snagged some food from the party." He tilted his head, and I showed him the small array of steamed buns, breadsticks, and other foods that I had stowed into my bag.
I tossed it over to him, "You take your pick, whenever you are ready to come out, I will be waiting in our front room."
I did wait for several minutes before he came out, my bag held in his mouth. He laid it beside me, padded over to the couch, and laid down. I must labor the point that he was massive, he took up the entire piece of furniture, and it absolutely did creak under his weight.
"New rule." I stated. "You must assume your hybrid form at least once a day." He cocked his head, surprised. "Yes. I'm well-versed in Werewolves and know that your current state of being is due to a complete lack of expressing yourself. Thus, I am mandating that you do it, you are free to do it as many times afterwards."
He made some growling sounds, an attempt at speaking.
"If you are asking why, it's because there is absolutely zero point in mistreating someone. I would sooner accept an arranged marriage than treat you with less dignity than you require and deserve." I paused. "Besides, that party was just a Blueblood affair, only there to flaunt wealth to the commoners. I spiked the refreshments with alcohest and dumped some juice over a particularly rude lady who designed to call you my servant. The absolute gall of it all!"
He barked a deep, powerful bark that rattled the windows and panted, his tail thumping.
I stayed up with him until his transformation ended. He looked exhausted.
"Thank you." He said softly.
"The agreement was that I needed to be okay with dogs." I said. "Even then, what else are friends for?"
He visibly shifted into his hybrid form, his tail wagging. I smiled, happy that he was happy, though I will admit, the thought of my father getting angry over me befriending a Werewolf certainly made the situation sweeter.

2023.06.11 00:20 Sturtle70 [TOMT][GAME][Maybe 2015-2020] Its a 3rd person rpg fantasy indie game that wasn't very popular But I think its on steam and it looked like it was made in unity
The game starts with the character spawning on a beach and then you head to a small town with npcs that give me quests and sell weapons or healing items. There's also a little farm with about 8 squares of dirt that you can plant 9 carrots in each square (I think you can plant other vegetables like cabbage but I mostly remember carrots) And after growing the carrots you can sell them for gold There are also Companions with different weapons like a bow, sword, or a staff to cast spells that you can hire to help you fight the enemies I remember there being bandit camps that were fortified with big wooden spikes and some of the bandits could shoot fire balls The game was also a bit buggy And I don't really remember anything else I've been trying to find anything on the game but since its not very popular I can't find anything on it

2023.06.11 00:20 UncommonProdigyz WIBTA If I faked being friends with a bunch of people in school after I realized they were using me and decide to block them on the last day of school?
(BTW I never post on reddit, this is a first time and probably a one time thing for me. Sorry for any mistakes.)
I hate these people, a lot. I thought it would be nice to have a few friends but when I found out they were using me I had no words. "Are they using you for money? A ride to school?" No—but for answers and help on work that a little kid could do. It's annoying.
The worst part is i'm to much of a people pleaser to even say no when they ask for help on the work.
Here are some things they ask and my actual response vs. what I wanted to say:
q: "What does this word mean?" a: "Oh that means ______" (a: You seriously couldn't look it up? The internet is literally right in-front of you. I'm not a personal dictionary.)
q: "Wait can you please explain this to me? I'm so dumb I don't know this!" a: "Omg no your not dumb! All you have to do is _______" (a: Yes, you are. The teacher JUST explained this but you were to busy on your phone and never paying attention.)
q: "Can I see your answer for question__?" a: "Yea of course! Just change up to words if you copy it." (a: No.)
I don't usually get upset when people ask me questions but this stuff is so simple even a child could do it. They ask me these questions as if the teacher doesn't exist.
Not to mention they are also actual idiots. While most people in high-school have an average or high gpa, these fools are literally at a 1.0 and failing more than 3 classes. They all have summer school but me.
They call me the "smart friend" or the "nerd." Not to mention I have dyscalculia (Dyslexia in math) yet my math grade is higher than all of theirs. Slightly embarrassing?
I have other reasons for me wanting to block them, they have talked about me behind my back, they leave me to go vap3 in the bathrooms because its "cool" and they'll call me weird or boring when I don't do that stuff.
I don't care that they do it but why talk about it like its the only thing you do.
I was sitting in class with them when they left out of nowhere to go to the bathroom, and a guy behind me asks, "They left you again?" It was the fact he said "again" because he knew that this happened to me often.
I question why I still hangout with them and let them talk down on me or use me for answers. It's not like somebody is gonna stop me from leaving them but I need to confront before I do but have no idea how.
I get it, nothings wrong with asking for help/helping your friend out once in awhile but they are like little toddlers who cant even do human daily functions.
I've even had random kids message me for answers because they were told "I know everything."
At this point i'm just trying to get finals over with and leave this school asap..
