Rants of Renters in Vancouver-Burnaby-Richmond-Victoria
2023.06.08 06:32 Special-Pie662 Rants of Renters in Vancouver-Burnaby-Richmond-Victoria
There is a person on here hijacking post, venting against home owners of the lowermainland .
As we know this is a global problem not strictly to Vancouver and Canada . Australia, Manila, Hong Kong, RIO, NYC, Seattle etc. So this guy goes by Motherfucker and after he posts, he deletes his username handle. not sure what it is as its labelled [deleted]
So my reply to the AKA guy Motherfucker whoever he is, ive copied and repost only my reply.
IN response to the renters attacking homeowners especially those in Burnaby who indicated older generation had it lucky to cheaper homes being on the market 5-6 years ago.
Keep in mind the population in the lower mainland grows 12% every YEAR.
if you have 519,000 people in Surrey , you can expect 60,000 new residence and compounding 120,000 following year , 3rd year 200,000 people. The population now doubles under 5 years. This applies to all lower mainland cities including Vancouver diverse population 676,000 and Burnaby being the lowest because of its policies to keep duplexes from being tore down to Multiplexes outside metrotown.
*Burnaby in 2035 will be more expensive to live than Vancouver as it will fit a "niche" place where everyone will want to live as [first choice] for career families .
Downtown Vancouver its' focus will see the disappearance of Vehicles in the very very near future.
With Population growth being out of hand around the world. WE are Starving everything from land use to ownership skyrise.
Frogs have disappeared, Butterflies are rare, Sparrows are no longer blacken the sky with happiness. WE see more white lines on the ground, more white lines in the blue skies, and more cars following the white broken lines. WE see close to 180,000 new vehicles every year added to the same 3 lanes going on the direction west to east TransCanada highway, Barnet , the same 3 lanes in the direction west to east on KIngsway , the overcrowded Marine drive in every city, but yet no [new added vehicle lanes].
No SKYbridge , no new Overpass, no new Express lanes. WE are losing the curb lane to cyclists who physically compete with 4,000lbs -80,000lbs vehicles everyday while the planning department deceitfully out of nowhere in the middle of the night new green lane. These projects are without homeowners approval votes. HOme property land owners are losing more to cyclists who are low mostly property tax condo owners and renters.
As to the Housing crisis,
its unfair to blame homeowners and the few who owns a few that rents them out at any price. We don't dictate the Business owner or boss how to run his or her business, The same should apply to HOme land owners on what they do with their property including the house(s).
THe real issue with the cost of renting is mainly [population growth], you need to blame.
Second, Force Immigration to deport the many illegal immigrants immediately without a subpoena or court date.
Thirdly we now have educate to all the high school kids and their parents, that their kids will not be living in southern BC. They need to evaluate their reality that living in a prime region like any other place comes with a premium price tag.
THis family entitlement ideology mindset needs to change very fast for those families to succeed. Its is not a given if you come to Southern BC including Kelowna, you are NOT given a privilege to own here unless you can afford it. To the Renters, As I told a Mister Patuzzi , your are not here to be understood , you are here to understand!
it wasn't cheap as fuck, lol i started 6 years ago having my first mortgage owning a new duplex making $23hr at the time. My gf was making $24hr. She is the brains, she saved up to put a downpayment under $180k who has two teenager girls.
So the real issue, you never saved up anything enough. You constantly complained that home prices will drop over the years. A great indicator to buy now was when interest rates were record low and even now , anything under 11% interest which is roughly 4.7% approx , if any bank, is not going to give you a Mortgage for a old cheap condo here, there nobody to blame except your stupidity!!! yes you !
The generation you think is old now including all other home owners charging for the high rent you consider, its because of your low income, you've known for many years that your not making Nurses wages, that today many companies like Hello 911 call takers who say "how may I direct your call?"who only need a grade 12 education, are making minimum $80k a year with the best pensions and insurance plan, you should have been LONG GONE Jack from this Lower Mainland or Southern BC.
So now what? your probably thinking if you did have a PETITE Mortgage , you live off foodbank because your unwilling to better your life, saddest part of your story if you are in a relationship, that person suffers greatly because he or she is stuck with you having to live in somewhat poverty unable to give her or him a good family with kids .
You got options, many filipinos, latinos and those from the Maritimes work 3 jobs, send money home and "don't complain publicly". Your option is to move to Southern Asia or Europe to work ESL teacher, they actually have a decent lifestyle ,
>>>>> or Move to New Brunswick to buy a nice house for under $120,000 , make the same wages your making now, They are dying for people to work for them and they now advertising paying higher salaries more than BC. Alberta Subway in the country is paying $29hr.
On the high rent and what home owners charge. Not all home owners more than one home. Luckily for some of the more expensive homes they have Family that can help them financially. I take it your not one of them, that a discussion you need to speak to your parents for failing you. And Again you were well prepared beforehand what type of future you were going to have. You could have started a RRSP or savings account in high school having a JOB like most kids planning ahead with savings that grows with maturity. Banks have been telling you constantly on tv commercials and posters while waiting at the ATM or bank teller thats always asking about interested in a preferred investment savings account.
Many homewoners have all their equity used up for paying off car loans, university loans they had, including unforseen debt they held as in Credit cards. Lets not make up shit and the shit going is why all of you "RENTER(s)" are in a predictable bad living circumstances. The Home Owners have ABSOLUTLY NOTHING TO DO owner a home. You think your problem(s) are isolated to Vancouver??? WTF? this is GLOBAL because your generation Globally fuck around as long as they could thinking living at home past 21 was ok and thinking MOM and POPs are going to give me a Heritance? Good for MOM and POPS selling their hard earn money HOUSE. Buying up new condos and LIVING THE LIFE !!!!!! Burn all that money Mom and Dad see the MotherFucking World !!! for the others who have a strong family bond like Vietnamese, Chinese who have financial family support, they financially are having to rent out their basements to be able to live a "DECENT LIFE" so they are not forced to go to foodbanks. The cost they charge for rent is not to get rich, Trust me everything is expensive, they are on the hook for new roof, bad plumbing, must need renovations. All this creates JOBS and Careers that you do not help, so it very unfair to attack them .
There are smart Canadians, mainly persistent hard working WOMEN mostly Filipinas who are great at managing finding ways to get that Mortgage. Maybe you should find yourself a Filipina partner.
Many are care aids , housekeepers, domesticated helpers. They are not rich. They have car payments and own a simple Condo that was bought in the few years.
Absolutely no reason why you should be into paying rent long-term.
RENTING and LEASING - Have always been short term. Renting is only for those recently moved to a new location because of being hired of a new JOB/Career while looking or Their home being renovated. The only exception is breakups. Because of the BC Rentalsman policies and laws that are not found in other Canadian Provinces including the any other countries like USA, Australia, Europe, It handcuffs homeowners to the renter. I believe that all renters should be forced to move out after 36 months, including those in BC Housing unless kids under 21 are still having to be dependent and those with disabilities. This allows others (new first time renters) a place and forces current renters to find something before the lease is up.
* that Renting is never a great idea, that forces you to own your own place or moving to a new location within a time frame. You got 36 months to get your shit together and find a suitable mature partner who can help as a financial partner or married partner to own. If it doesn't work out, you do like most around the world including Newfies, THEY MOVE FAR FAR FAR to another Galaxy Far far away.
Pull up your panties fucko or as you put it "motherFucker" and move the fuck out !!!! that's what a intelligent person would do. lets not hear about this any longer from you while homeowners are heavily subsidizing your bus fares including the nice parks, healthcare and the city infrastructures.
if your not paying or contributing at least $36,091 annually in taxes , is what it cost the Federal Government to run this country.
Your living, like many, "subsidized" by high income earners and COMPANIES .
* The basic $9000 tax exemption you see when you do your taxes or apply a new job when they give you the income tax form, it doesn't show you what it cost to have you living in Canada because its highly diversified, and complicated!
There are billions waiting to having the OPPORTUNITY to MOVE into C$ANADA. If you can't do your part financially in contributing or capable of surviving in any Province including BC, Maybe its time you leave Canada for good. Many have done successfully.
Good Luck and may the Force be with You!
end of story - its time to move on, lol
Currently as of June 2023
we are not any replying at this time to comment(s) because of the many that are stuck in a low paying position called a "JOB"

2023.06.08 06:30 Wh00pity_sc00p Do you guys actually enjoy what you do for a living or are you just in this because its a safe job that pays the bills?
I feel like when most people are lost in life, they're told to pretty much just "do IT".
I'm kinda lost in life right now and I've been told by like 30 people that I should try learning IT even if I don't like it because there's always going to be work, its pretty easy to get in w/o a degree, and it can make me a lot of money if I stay for a while. Just wondering if this is how it really is

2023.06.08 06:27 Lone_But_Woke_Wolf I (25F) asked for space and didn't answer him (M31) when he asked if I still love him
This isn't the first time I asked him for space.
The reason I asked for space in the first place is because I have unresolved traumas and problems and I wanted to face them alone without having to worry if I neglected him by doing so. I've been neglected as a child and I never want to let another person experience it, to which I applied in all of my relationships.
We're in a long distance relationship. Our main communication is via chats or video calls. He's the kind of guy that will always give me an update without me asking for it. In return, all he asks is me messaging him with good morning, goodnight, or little bit of updates whenever I'm not busy.
The first time I asked for space, he threw a tantrum because he got scared of losing me. In his mind, asking for space is just the first step of break ups.
The second time I asked for space, he agreed. 4 days later he called me, crying, because his BIL died.
I believe the first time I made a man my world was when I was 15. I was head over heels and I didn't prioritize my school and even left my friends because I didn't want to neglect my ex-SO.
I'm now 25, and for those 10 years I didn't fully experience what it's like to be single or just be a normal individual. It always involves a partner and do decisions that needed to be considerate to the partner.
Granted, my bf is better than my ex. He also assurred me that he will support me whatever my decision is. But lately, I didn't feel it. I wanted to enjoy my life at its finest but he always inserts an unplanned event that will ruin my plans.
I'm not rich and I tend to explore life in my own pace with the little I have. Like, I will save money to go out for a day and eat out from breakfast to dinner and go buy new sets of clothes. Then he messages me that he will come to my city to spend time with me, which means we had to pay for accommodations and food. No, he can't stay and sleep in my house and he has no relatives here. Yes, he does pay his share but sometimes it's not enough so I had to pay my share as well. The one I saved for a self date will end up being spent with him.
This is not the first time my budget plans are ruined because of him.
At first I tried to convince myself that it's okay as long as we're happy. But lately I feel the tension building up and my heart ached whenever I remember the ruined plans I had for myself.
He's 31 and has 8+ years of experience earning his own money. He experienced going abroad and enjoying his life. He has a big wardrobe complete with presentable clothes and shoes and everything.
On the other hand, I barely explored life alone. This is my second job. I have a total work experience of 2+ years. I have a little bit of savings, and all my clothes are the ones I had since college. I rarely get to buy new things for myself and whenever I do plan to treat myself, I always end up spending it on our dates.
Y'all might say he should at least treat me with clothes. He's broke, still has unpaid debts with me, and his job doesn't have a high salary.
I guess the last straw was when we bought 2 pairs of glasses for us (using my credit card, and yes, another unplanned budget) and while he slowly paid for his share, he ended up losing the glasses.
Sometimes I'm guilty thinking about these things because I feel like I'm materialistic and immature that I let something as small as money get in the way of our relationship. I wanted to go to the gym, learn how to do makeup, do a massive wardrobe change, all because I want to improve myself — and that needs a lot of money. Yet sometimes he thinks that telling me he already likes me for me is enough.
Generally, we both have different goals and views, and because of that I wanted to break up with him. Yet whenever I do that, it's either he didn't want to, or looks for a reason to delay our breakup.
I'm not happy lately. I do appreciate that he did his best to balance his work, his personal life, and his time with me. I did see it. But whenever he calls me, it was just a quick "how are you?" then ends the call because he has something to do. Whenever we have a video call, the camera is on but he will talk to the people around him, and I end up scroling through TikTok or Facebook while listening to their conversations. On a rare occasion that his attention is focused on me, it's either I spend it listening to his speech about his job, or we literally have nothing enjoyable to talk about since we don't have that much in common anymore.
Today, I finally asked for space and I am not taking no as an answer anymore. I'm glad that he didn't throw a tantrum like before, but his last message was asking me if I still love him. I left the message on read and didn't respond.
I honestly don't know if I still love him. Also, his last message pissed me off as I see it as another attempt to disrespect my space.
Was I too harsh? Is this relationship worth saving?
TL;DR: I asked for space and didn't answer him when he asked if I still love him, because I see it as disrespecting my wish by trying to delay the space that I wanted. Was I too harsh? Is this relationship worth saving?

Bands and DJs have more freedom to play sets which appeal to the dance-centric crowd. It's about the music. It's about the dance.

2023.06.08 06:23 Snipteal Should I Charge PST/GST/HST on my freelance hourly rate?
I recently started working as a freelancer and I have a question regarding invoicing customers and taxes. I'm providing a service as a IT consultant and the company I'm working for agreed to pay me $X per hour. Now, I'm not sure whether I need to break down the taxes when sending my invoices to them, or just send the invoice as hours worked times hourly rate and that's it. I understand that when selling goods, sales tax is usually applied. However, I'm unsure if the same rules apply to services. Some sources I've found suggest that certain services are exempt from sales tax, while others indicate that sales tax may apply so I am confused.
I don't have a company in my name, and I have not filed for a PST number. I want to ensure that I'm handling my taxes correctly (I'll be putting around 30% on teh side for paying taxes on the next tax year) and not putting myself at risk of any penalties or fines, since this is my first time working as a IT consultant. So, I'd greatly appreciate it if any experienced freelancers or tax experts could provide some guidance on this matter. I intend to consult with a accoutant before tax season for the next year, however I would like to bill the company correctly since the beginning. Are there any exemptions or thresholds that I should be aware of as a service provider?
Thanks so much for all your help!

2023.06.08 06:21 hijesushere Just some regular old, not weird in any way song lyrics that I noticed in a couple of my favorite songs... I'm gathering evidence...
Lyrics in songs I've noticed.
Oh hey! In the same dream
It kept calling us
Wonderland beyond distant memories
We we we strong, nothing missing
Wake up, the answer is Simple
Be Boss, blow the Whistle
The bigger world is noticing you.
Shall we have a festival? I hold your hand.
We've been waiting for this moment. Spread your wings and be yourself.
Come play at My carnival.
Climax? It starts now.
Watch out! We are making the rules.
It’s now or never, we got forever. Sappy
You're sobbing and being pessimistic
You're hesitating again, you can't choose
Writing poems in your note, your hobby is sentimental
Look, now it's time to open the door
Tell me, which do you love?
It's not bad thing to dream
It's not a fairytale, it's the real world
What are you gonna do? Which one are you
Reality or fantasy, adolescent boy?
I'm still clearing dating simulation games
using the manual
I'm still a long way from real love
It's not that I don't like it
Escape from being just two-dimensional
Which one do you love?
Tonight let me know your true feelings
You'll really grow up then
Tell me, which one do you love?
(In the video the lyrics are "Logging out from delusion" for a part of it.)
That's not even getting into the imagery in the video.
Feel My Rhythm
Blowing up this fancy ball
We're back, cute chaotic delight
This is gonna be a crazy night
Epic appearance to stunning greetings
Let's have a little fun
Don't be shy, Bae bae
Let the play start
(Birds and wings everywhere in the video. Irene is shown offering strawberries to a gigantic statue of some sort which then falls towards her. Joy is seen standing in front of some type of being with wings, I can't tell what it would be though. Maybe one of us? Cant tell, she's, yeah she's blocking the shot)
Now cruising into a weird, new dimension
A place I've never imagined appears unexpectedly
Don't miss this moment, baby.
Don't confine yourself to yesterday or tomorrow.
I'm truly free right now.
Come ride with me (Sway)
Let's go anywhere (Way)
I want to mess all the boundaries
In this world (Oh yeah)
When the world stops What a what a feeling Come take my hand (All right) A brand new Film We falling deep, You and I Next time, spin the clock Where should we go? Come on, let's start again You and I
You used to be afraid of the dark night (ah yeah yeah) Hiding without anyone else knowing (ah yeah yeah) No one say happy ending You stayed silent and ran away (Here we go Here we go like)...
Knock Knock There’s a monster It’s growing larger, the black hole inside of you When you back uh? The howler has swallowed you, that’s the killer Don’t be afraid, hold my hand Your past is making you scared But know your power For the final time, be first You know that I come first I’m the winner winner winner Yes, it’s the last melody To save save save you (so don’t keep) Don’t be deceived by the lie That there is no light in this world Together we will Dream a dream that’s never been seen before Dream a dream that’s never been seen before (Ya) It’s ok if you fall (stand up) It’s you (hands up) Faster Stronger Better Gotta be the best Between night and day, around 5:30AM A war without loyalty will suffocate you, this is a foul Lies, darkness, truth, ecstasy, fantasy My candle makes you explode like a fireworks of melodies in the dawn Don’t be afraid, hold my hand Your past is making you scared But know your power For the final time, be first You know that I come first I’m the winner winner winner Yes, it’s the last melody To save save save you (so don’t keep) Don’t be deceived by the lie That there is no light in this world Together we will Dream a dream that’s never been seen before I’m breaking down the walls, crossing the lines I won’t shrivel up, I’ll jump over one step You got me now got me now two step Don’t slow it down slow it down Shout towards the sky that comes to you Hold onto the key of hope...
Bon bon chocolate
go up to the sky .
Hate to twist your mind, but God ain't on your side
Flesh is burning, you can smell it in the air 'Cause men like you have such an easy soul to steal (steal) So stand in line while they ink numbers in your head You're now a slave until the end of time here Nothing stops the madness turning Haunting, yearning, pull the trigger You should've known the price of evil And it hurts to know that you belong here, yeah Ooh, it's your fuckin' nightmare While your nightmare comes to life
You've been lied to just to rape you of your sight And now they have the nerve to tell you how to feel (feel) So sedated as they medicate your brain And while you slowly go insane they tell you Given with the best intentions Help you with your complications
You should've known the price of evil And it hurts to know that you belong here, yeah No one to call, everybody to fear Your tragic fate is lookin' so clear, yeah Ooh, it's your fuckin' nightmare Ha, ha, ha, ha
And I know you hear their voices (calling from above) And I know they may seem real (these signals of love) But our life's made up of choices (some without appeal) They took for granted your soul And it's ours now to steal As your nightmare comes to life
Like walking into a dream, so unlike what you've seen So unsure but it seems, 'cause we've been waiting for you Fallen into this place, just giving you a small taste Of your afterlife here so stay, you'll be back here soon anyway
A place of hope and no pain, perfect skies with no rain Can leave this place but refrain, 'cause we've been waiting for you Fallen into this place, just giving you a small taste Of your afterlife here so stay, you'll be back here soon anyway This piece on Earth's not right (with my back against the wall) No pain or sign of time (I'm much too young to fall) So out of place, don't wanna stay, I feel wrong and that's my sign I've made up my mind Give me your hand but realize I just wanna say goodbye Please, understand I have to leave and carry on my own life
Standing in the shade of altruism, answering the call Came a modern messiah to save us all Something far beyond the work of fiction, Positronic brain A world that's void of all the anguish and suffering, pain
We're creating god, master of our designs We're creating god, unsure of what we'll find
Never held a high regard for Darwin, selection takes too long A little kick in the pool shouldn't do us wrong Devouring the very last invention man would ever need But exponential growth is a frightening thing, indeed
Sometimes when I look up to the sky I have to wonder are we "summoning the demon" you and I?
Have you noticed that I'm needin' it more now, more than it needs me Got a couple of billion that seem to agree Surfing in an artificial dimension, but we're not alone Now the master has become just a stepping stone, oh
We're Creating, God.
Beast and the Harlot
This shining city built of gold A far cry from innocence There's more than meets the eye around here Look to the waters of the deep A city of evil There sat a seven headed beast Ten horns raised from his head Symbolic woman sits on his throne But hatred strips her and leaves her naked The beast and the harlot
The city dressed in jewels and gold Fine linen, myrrh and pearls Her plagues will come all at once As her mourners watch her burn Destroyed in an hour Merchants and captains of the world Sailors navigators too Will weep and mourn this loss With her sins piled to the sky The beast and the harlot
The day has come for all our sinners If you're not a servant, you'll be struck to the ground Flee the burning, greedy city Looking back on her to see there's nothing around
The day has come for all our sinners If you're not a servant, you'll be struck to the ground Flee the burning, greedy city Looking back on her to see there's nothing around I don't believe in fairy tales and no one wants to go to hell You've made the wrong decision and it's easy to see Now if you wanna serve above or be a king below with us You're welcome to the city where your future is set forever
Welcome to the family
Hey kid (hey kid) Do I have your attention? I know the way you've been living Life's so reckless, tragedy endless Welcome to the family Hey There's something missing Only time will alter your vision Never in question, lethal injection Welcome to the family Not long ago you find the answers were so crystal clear Within a day you find yourself living in constant fear Can you look at yourself now, can you look at yourself? You can't win this fight
I try and help you with the things that can't be justified I need to warn you that there is no way to rationalize So have you figured it out now, so have you figured it out? You can't win this fight
And in a way it seems there's no one to call When our thoughts are so numb And our feelings unsure We all have emptiness inside, we all have answers to find But you can't win this fight!
I see you're a king who's been dethroned Cast out in a world you've never know Stand down, place your weapon by your side It's our war in the end, we'll surely lose but that's alright So have you figured it out now, so have you figured it out?
So sorry you're not here I've been sane too long, my vision's so unclear Now take a trip with me But don't be surprised when things aren't what they seem
You've been breakin' down for far too long Far too many moons since you felt well and strong You see, you could say goodbye but you don't have to die Not ever
Engineer the wires to your brain Architect a code so you won't feel the pain With your family by your side and vigor in your eyes forever Live Forever I'm way up, a god in size, beyond the reach of mortals I shed my human side Father, oh father I stare at my reflection, have I lost that boy inside? Final paradigm What's it really mean to be a man? Think about your answer but please understand While it's natural to fear, I'll make it disappear forever I forever I'm way up, a god in size, beyond the reach of mortals I shed my human side Father, oh father I stare at my reflection, have I lost that boy inside? Final paradigm Singular I am I have the question if these thoughts are mine To live forever but did something in me die? I'm clawing my skin but I can't feel it inside I know the agony of pain would hurt so much better I'm way up, so far up Have I lost myself tonight? Mother, oh father Have you lost that boy you used to know?
It seems I should have walked away Reverse the wager I've no means to pay Toto has pulled back the green tonight, in sight And blue pills coat with such disdain I wore the shades for so long That I've forgotten how to see The curtain rises but who dares to pull the strings
I know this might be hard for you to believe and all, But you only exist because we allow it I question all the voices in my head Are they mine or have I been misled? Total understanding doesn't seem to mean a thing When you can't see behind the silver screen, a figurine Can't you hear me scream? By the way of cosmic rays A subtle breakdown jarred the code display A simulation as I can tell, our cell Playing out a hopeless scene We stand to lose all our charm And faith just seems to wane A billion years can seem a stunningly short time You've been beaten down time and time again But still you find yourself at the center of it all I question all the voices in my head Are they mine or have I been misled? Total understanding doesn't seem to mean a thing When you can't see behind the silver screen, a figurine Can't you hear me scream? You hear me, you had one thing to do, one thing And you fucked it up, piece of shit Nurse, patient 666158 needs to be sedated We need 500 CCs of M Oh hello there, dearie I've been expecting you Posturing the way I feel Is truth only what we believe is real? Marvel the sketches that paint the night, starlight And take a breath before it's all erased away
Their song Angels; Waking the Fallen, Sounding the Seventh Trumpet.
Yeah EVERGLOW Gonna be mad lunatic, girl When the mysteriously changed moon comes A show that will start suddenly In secret, yeah, dance I want it Ddi-dam-bam-bam, bba-rira-bam-bam A paradise found in a whole new world that is out of sync ‘Cause I’m a pirate, yeah, yeah A pirate, yeah, yeah A pirate, yeah, yeah Now let me introduce myself I am a fleet I Start this voyage Towards the moon mist Yeah, let me introduce myself...
Twenty four hours, the light disappears Overnight, night, overnight During the night when the dazzling starlight shines Ayy, lift the anchor Girls all over the world Dance tonight And we could be anything, anything now Go crazy, no doubt Rowin’ for the Crown Waving the flag, yeah...
All the way, all the way, all the way The riot we made All the way, all the way, all the way Can’t ever stay quiet Girls all over the world Run tonight Just get on board ‘Cause I’m a pirate, yeah, yeah A pirate, yeah, yeah A pirate, yeah, yeah Now let me introduce myself I am a fleet Start this voyage Towards the moon mist Yeah, let me introduce myself Ahoy! Sing a song now The hidden moon festival Well, shiver me timbers (Aye-aye) Watch this night together Last chance, get on board Approaching tsunami, disappearing afternoon Everyone falls asleep under these waves Yeah, I’m making the moves During the night when the dazzling starlight shines Ayy, lift the anchor Girls all over the world Dance tonight And we could be anything, anything now Go crazy, no doubt Rowin’ for the crown Waving the flag, yeah (Oh woah) All the way, all the way, all the way The riot that we made (Oh yeah) All the way, all the way, all the way Can’t ever stay quiet Girls all over the world Run tonight Just get on board...
A letter from that future Together with that blinding light Trust me and follow me up to my ark...

2023.06.08 06:19 slf_dprctng_hmr How do you commit to a career?
Hi!! I just graduated and am in the process of figuring out how I want to spend the next 2-3 years of my life (beyond paying off my loans and reconnecting with family) before pursuing graduate school. I’ve held part-time jobs for multiple years in the past, but the prospect of committing to a 9-5 for this gap period alone is so daunting. I have no idea how my parents and many of the adults I know have stuck with the same job (granted, including some promotions / upward mobility here and there), in the same institution, in the same city, with pretty much the same colleagues for decades.
How do you commit to something like that? Is the feeling akin to the “spark” you feel with a romantic partner? Or do you just accept a job offer hoping you’ll like it enough to make it last long-term and, before you know it, you’re a senior in your department? Any and all advice would be really appreciated!

2023.06.08 06:19 babeliest Best ways to make extra money in between hearing back from/starting a new job?
Hi everyone, I am not sure if this is the right group for this question but I am currently a 23 year old college student that works part time and well, I barely make it by. When I am taking classes I work roughly 24 hours a week (it’s taking me a long time to get my bachelors degree due to needing to work to survive, lol). I just accepted a new job offer that is related to my biology pursuits, but it is only 20 hours a week (good for when I’m in classes), although I was told it could be possible for me to be cross trained in other areas to get more hours. I have also been applying to numerous part time jobs to have just for the summer on top of this new job, and so far I haven’t heard back from any. I am anticipating an increase in bills within the next couple months (renewing car insurance next month, along with my registration, rent is going up with renewed lease, trying to pay off one of my credit cards before interest starts accruing in august.. etc). I am basically wondering in the short term what I could do to get some extra cash in between paychecks. In the past I have donated plasma and I think that is looking like my most convenient option (but I have struggled on a couple donations due to my failure to be properly hydrated sometimes so I am trying to work on that). Basically, I was wondering if there are things I could do in the same realm as donating plasma or a way to find gigs that could get me by while I try to secure a second job?
I am a bit embarrassed to post this because I always see posts from people around my age that have so much in their savings and are doing much better than me, but I figure there are people in this group that have struggle before that could direct me to some resources. Thanks!

Rodeo, you weren't even involved yet here you are running that trap mouth and believing a meth head with open warrants LMFAO!! Great, well while you are speaking on shit you don't know, please tell me WHY THE FUCK I AM RESPONSIBLE for paying for a DIME of her trip when she claimed DV and I dropped everything to help her. She was perfectly happy making TikTok after TikTok all the way to Kentucky. Annnd? I volunteered and when asked "What do you need RT?" It was money to get there and BACK!!! Not drop her the fuck off. The money was meant for BOTH OF US TO EAT! Whhut the fuck is wrong with you two? At no point in time did I EVER do anything but volunteer to drive. Your new buddy Sara can confirm all of this. Maybe you should talk to Kacey, the girl who came to actually alert me of the entire situation. Again, something I was HELPLING A SO CALLED ABUSED WOMAN FOR backfired for fucking Tik Tok clout. Convenient that wedding is this weekend and she's short money. Out here making TikTok click bait. Cool bitches. Here's the truth. Are ya'll hitting that meth pipe? Here's the receipts..I don't know what to tell you dumbasses. But ya look big fucking stupid, greedy and totally ungrateful. I ain't done a damn thing to you but call you out on your scamming ass BS.
Now you're calling the cops cause I am supposedly reaching out to your ex? The FUCK I AM GIRL. Jesus Christ anything for Tik Tok money for those bills you two. I don't have enough time in my day to give a fuck to reach out to them. You're ignorant. You hiding for real? You don't get on social media. Plain and simple. You ain't gonna find proof of that, and you're gonna have to have it. You had a friend reveal your location to him and we all know it. You came into my chat upset over it and conning Holly to come stay with you so she can pay your fucking bills. I'll be sitting here waiting for the cops and allllll these invisible charges you heifer. Keep stomping your feet and huffing that nose like a raging bull, you may make enough for all those bills but I certainly ain't gonna give you shit, I can PROVE I DON'T OWE YOU A FUCKING THING. Can't delete those transactions heifer. https://preview.redd.it/oylt6jq8zp4b1.png?width=1080&format=png&auto=webp&s=142b8643f605dad0f63f5a0e4fef52de124db453 https://preview.redd.it/ev4pyrq8zp4b1.png?width=1080&format=png&auto=webp&s=75699ed3a35a3a453535535e48ee0412e7e89d64 https://preview.redd.it/nj6eosq8zp4b1.png?width=1080&format=png&auto=webp&s=98615c2cf68878bc8ca741cfb2befc596f9b0cb3
2023.06.08 06:12 ngqth Windscribe honest Review from a Paid Long-Term user in Australia.
I am a long-term Windscribe user. I started from a free account, then I upgraded to Pro because I started daily driving VPN on my phone 24/7 and I also use VPN on my other devices as well. So the free bandwidth isn't enough anymore.
I am living in Australia, I am from Vietnam. I used WS primarily for streaming overseas content, which is mostly Netflix, music services that can't be used outside Vietnam (the music app is very anal about copyright), and streaming movies with Stremio (torrent, and Alldebrid <- illegal, I know. That is why I use VPN).
I also use VPN to work overseas when my company blocks overseas IPs to access their server (I know I am not supposed to do that, but I did).
I used Windscribe on my phone, TV, laptops (Linux, Win, chrome/edge extension), and on my GL-inet router.
I have tested a few VPNs: ExpressVPN, Nord, SurfShark, PIA. All of them I used with premium accounts (some I trial for 7 days, others I pay for a 1-month subscription). I used them to do the same thing WS does which is what I have described above (except the working overseas part). I paid attention to the speed, ease to use and pricing to decide which one I will stick with moving forward.
This is from my own experience. It will be different for you. Overview:
- Speed: WS is fast, at least in my case. I can stream videos without lagging. When I run WS 24/7 on my phone, I even forget that I have VPN on. Sometimes, I run VPN with Vietnam server for a few days without noticing (I normally run on Australia servers for daily use, with very little speed drop when not using VPN).
- I can run the country-restricted music app without issue. I have tested a few VPNs and my app still can detect I am streaming from overseas and block me from using it (I don't know how) <- this one is very important for me
- Split tunnelling is very useful.
- Ads/clickbait/gambling/p*rn sites blocking (a huge green tick), I can block those on my other devices without having to install WS (children's iPad/phone).
- Pricing: I got an email from WS offering me a monthly (not annual, or 2 years deal) subscription for $4. I know we can get a cheaper deal from other VPNs by paying for an annual subscription. I don't want to commit that long to a subscription, monthly is my choice. I also have another promotion email about their birthday which offers me $29 for a 1-year subscription, I personally like this deal better. But I am too lazy to switch.
- Extra: WS use memes in their emails, kind of funny and I like it.
- Best thing: YOU CAN USE WS FOR FREE, and their free account is plenty fast. I used it for a few years before deciding to upgrade to the PRO account. I also use ProtonVPN free account as well.
- The client is buggy. For example: when I turn off my pc with VPN still on (and the auto-connect option is off) and log back in I can't access the internet due to the firewall blocking the traffic. At first, I thought my pc/wifi has an issue but I have to restart multiple times and re-installed the driver. But it is an easy fix, all we have to do is just turn the firewall switch off. This is not a huge problem for me.
- Lack of huge discount promotion (I found online that PIA has a 95% cashback offer for new users).
- I remember WS used to have a lifetime subscription, apparently, they don't offer it anymore.
- Have fewer servers than other VPNs (not an issue, in my case).
- I used other VPNs and to be honest, I like their apps' interface more than the WS one.
- I would love WS to have a 'dark web' monitor like other VPNs do.
TLDR: other VPNs might have higher speeds, more servers and more features. But WS can do well and it fits my purposes: great speed, multiple platforms support, site blocking and great price.
I am interested in other VPNs with the same features and pricing. Proton is on my radar but the price is not as good as WS. For now, I think WS is still my best choice.
One more thing:
When I use WS on GL-inet app on my phone, I can't select a specific server. For example, I can't select an individual server within a country. I only can select the country and the app auto-picks me a city. I think it is GL-inet problem, not really a Windscribe issue, I might be wrong.
I point it out anyway, I hope they can fix that to give users a more streamlined experience.

2023.06.08 06:11 brownracingstripes Bird Scooter Customer Service
| || |
I rented Bird scooters for a family member and myself but one did not work after spending a few minutes troubleshooting. So, I found a replacement scooter that worked fine, but Bird still charged me $5.33 for the one that never started. The GPS evidence supports my claim. I asked their customer service for a refund and twice they sent me a form letter about being out of the service area, which was absolutely 100% not true. I was downtown in a major city. The third customer service rep gave me a refund for the bad scooter and a little more (I think the extra was for the first scooter being billed by the minute while I tried to get a new scooter for me). Unfortunately, I think they entered something wrong and my credit card shows the full amount. The fourth rep said that I had already been refunded and that it was so fast they were able to do a partial reversal. Well that is true…except they accidentally reversed the charges from the credit leaving me with no credit at all. I’m pretty sure you can see their dumbass mistake inn the image and why I wasn’t refunded anything. I generally don’t complain publicly, but I’ve had enough. I spent $24 to ride two scooters 1.4 miles and learn a valuable lesson. I hope others learn from my mistake. PS-My Uber tonight, which was a new Infinity SUV leaving from the same location, cost $13 after tip. It had seatbelts, airbags, ran properly, and they billed me correctly. submitted by brownracingstripes to mildlyinfuriating [link] [comments]
2023.06.08 06:11 Lazy-Environment7669 FSA Options with rehire circumstances ?
I am working a FT job as an international student. My company provides FSA options. My current visa is set to expire on July 05 and so my company would be terminating my position temporarily. I would be rehired in same position by last week of July. With what ever I spoke to my HR, she informed me I would receive cobra package while during transition period so with that set I believe, that will be a qualified event so I while rehired will have to renroll back in the health care plan of my company.
I had couple of dental services and medical bills between Jan 2023 and July 2023 and some of the dental expense go over 1500$+ and there are lot more which could take me over 2.5-3k$. Until now I have paid most of the expanse through a credit card which has interest free period upto April 2024.
I would like to register for FSA during my rehiring period and put in equivalent amount of money into FSA account and get some tax benefit by paying it off in credit card and submit required doc
If I do this would there be any problem since the expenses were made during Jan 2023 to June 2023 were I would not have an active FSA. Is this even a valid legal plan ?
Responses are appreciated Thanks

2023.06.08 06:09 WeStanPlankton I got my first writing job and the entire company is making it very clear how terrible I am at writing. Any advice?
So I got out of film production because I was super overworked and I realized that it wasn't getting me any closer to my overarching goal of being a screenwriter. I decided to move back to Texas for a bit and get my head together, focus on my writing. cool.
Some background on me, I have an English - creative writing degree from LSU. I have never worked a writing job until this one. I graduated in 2021 and have worked in film production ever since.
I get a job with a law firm as a "demand writer." Basically, I write 20-60 page comprehensive letters that cover all the facts of the case so that the paralegals and attorneys don't have to. Then I make a powerpoint and a brochure to go with them. These can take weeks to do sometimes, and while it was fascinating and I have a pretty good salary, there are some things going on that have destroyed me. A normal demand letter is only a few pages long because the main function is to demand a settlement amount.
So there is a manager of the demand writers, and then each demand writer works under a paralegal. My paralegal was a serial procrastinator and I would have to beg and remind him constantly to not forget about when the letters need to go out. The manager has gotten in trouble several times because while she gives really good feedback, she uses it as an opportunity to insult me to my face. I don't mean like I'm being sensitive about getting criticism, I mean constantly wondering how I even have my degree, wondering if something is wrong with me mentally, wondering if I'm even literate. This wasn't in a playful way either, it was openly hostile to the point other coworkers have confronted her more than once.
So I stopped sending my work to her. I was already overwhelmed because our boss thinks that these huge letters can be written in a single afternoon and screams constantly about why writers are worthless. Any time there is a problem with a case, if anyone messes up, they blame the demand writers because it's a department full of college students and recent graduates. (we're also the only department that requires anyone to have degrees) My schedule became so heavy that I didn't even have time to have my work proof-read because our boss wanted the month of May to have a mediation very single day. I tried to get attorneys to help me, because they were also told that they need to help with proof-reading. I tried to get the legal assistant on my team. No one would do it, so I just churned out work as fast as possible. Then my boss started making me do everyones PowerPoints because I guess that's the only thing I can do right. My boss sings to the high heavens of my PowerPoints and says that I'm extremely good at research, just not writing.
Well, my paralegal got fired and manager replaced him. I immediately asked to move to a different team. Everyone but the old managenew paralegal agreed so I moved to a different team. The girl that became the new manager is great and she has been communicating with our boss about ways to help me improve. She made it clear that I am not a technical writer and how this is all new to me. Old manager has been doing reviews of cases and has basically been making a big show of how much of my work needs to be fixed and two other writers had to stop their work to help fix mine.
Every day thus far has been me being extremely careful to take everyones feedback, be more mindful of my own work, and try to improve my writing. But in the background everyone is constantly talking about how bad my work is and how many problems there are. I think the only reason I haven't been fired yet is my boss said I would be getting a second chance on this new team.
I think my complaint right now is that I understand I have been making mistakes. I understand that they need to be fixed, and everyone is having to stop what they are doing to fix it. It's embarrassing, but I just have to sit there and accept it while I quietly look for another job. But it just won't stop. I come to work and every single day, someone pulls something out and I hear another thing I've messed up and get glared at or people have whole conversations about me but will omit my name while I'm in the room.
Idk, I don't want to lose my job because it's a really good job. I'm just upset because this is how I'm learning about the mistakes I've made. The new manager wants to have sit down sessions with me but promises not to do what the old manager did. She agrees with me though, that what I'm going through isn't entirely fair because no one was reviewing anything. They were just sending work out, fully aware that it was not proof-read.
I still want to be a writer, but not a demand writer. This is just a job to pay the bills until a better one comes along, and I am certainly looking for one. But please, can a fellow writer give me some advice? Where can I go from here? I'm looking forward to improving, if I can but this just feels like I'm constantly being humiliated for how bad I am at the thing I got a degree in.
TLDR; got a job in the legal field as a demand writer. Had major problems with my manager because her version of "critique" includes blatantly insulting me (literally questioning my intelligence, calling me a bum, saying I don't deserve my degree, etc.). Everyone else was too busy or just didn't want to review my work, so it got sent out full of errors. I'm being given a second chance, but everyone is loudly complaining about how bad my work is while they fix the errors in my past work. I just don't want to do it anymore. This is not my field. Any advice on where I can go from here? Has anyone else ever experienced anything like this, especially early in their career?
