2023.06.08 08:06 Bola085Profile Review: 21M / 7.49 GPA / 326 GRE / India / Advice for Round 1 (2024) MiM Applications
I need some guidance regarding my MiM profile evaluation and would appreciate your input. I applied to several universities during Round 2 and 3 in 2023, including LBS, Imperial, Warwick, and Manchester's. Unfortunately, I only received an offer from Warwick, but I have concerns about the red flags I've noticed regarding their alumni network and the job market in the UK. Here are some details about my profile: I'm 22M, Work Experience: Started as an intern in startups and was subsequently promoted to an associate manager. Currently transitioning to a developer role in a Fortune 500 company.
Undergrad: Completed BTech in Computer Science with a GPA of 7.49/10 from a lower-tier university approximately a year ago.
GRE Scores: Verbal (160), Quant (168)
Additional Highlights: Running an NGO, Professional esports player, Fellowships from M7 universities
Target Schools:Insead, HEC, ESSEC, ESCP, LBS, DUKE (MMS) I have been considering seeking admission consultation services, such as MiM-Essay, but their fee of 75,000 INR (1,000 USD) is beyond my budget. Additionally, I previously hired an LBS alumnus as a consultant but did not achieve the desired success last year. I'm particularly concerned about mitigating the academic red flags associated with my lower GPA and my background from a lower-tier university. I would greatly appreciate any advice or recommendations on how to address these concerns effectively. Furthermore, I'm open to suggestions regarding reputable admission consultants who can provide valuable guidance throughout the application process. I have been disappointed with my previous experiences, as I couldn't secure admission to my desired universities and ended up at Warwick.
2023.06.08 08:05 LorpedodontistI’ve been attempting to make my own brush line
I’m a painter and digital artist, and I usually just use whatever brushes I have available. I’m currently sitting on a skateboard deck I’m supposed to paint for a charity event, and I’ve got some artist block. But this isn’t about my normal painting, this is about miniature painting—like D&D and Warhammer models. Around the new year, I decided to get out of my slump and actually start making stuff again. I realized I had made basically nothing for two years. The first big task was getting my minis painted. But when it comes to miniature brushes, the market kind of sucks. We’re either using synthetics marked way up because it’s so niche, or traditional art brushes that aren’t really sized for the needs of a mini painter. So, I decided to make my own. And it’s been frustrating, expensive, and frankly, pretty scary. All I knew going in was that I wanted kolinsky sable brushes sized appropriately for miniature painting. Mini painters want really sharp tips—you’re painting pupils on a three inch model. Kolinsky made the most sense. You also want shorter handles, because mini painters tend to choke up on the ferrule. Being totally new to this, I started by looking at Alibaba. The plan was to find the best Chinese manufacturer I could. So, I ordered a ton of samples, and that’s really expensive. Then, I found out that importing kolisnky to the US is illegal, so I had to make an LLC and get what’s called a CITES permit to get permission to import regulated animal material. So, if you want rhino horns or whatever, I’m your guy. I also decided to look at other manufacturers, and I filled out the contact forms for some US manufacturers, thinking they wouldn’t be able to work with me because of my low quality order. And most did reply, and declined. Fast forward a couple months and I’m testing Chinese brushes. They’re okay—not great. The handles are fine, but the bristles are not too stellar. Then I get a call from New York, and the nicest, most NY sounding guy tells me that he got my message, and he’s sent a bunch of samples in the mail—for free. Earlier today I’m sitting in a pile of paint brushes, looking at all my branded samples. I don’t have a lot of money, so using the US manufacturer is terrifying, because they cost 50% more. I’m just worried I won’t be able to swing the price. Then, I run my finger over the bristles. The US brushes snap right back into place. I can hear it. The Chinese brushes are soft, and start to separate. I decide that’s just because of conditioning agents still on the brush, so I take all the samples and run them under the sink. The Chinese brushes look worse, the US brushes look the same. Then I run my finger over them and I hear that same snap. I don’t get that response from the Chinese brushes. I don’t totally understand it. They’re the same hair from the same animal. I don’t know why the US bristles we’re so much better. And I’m pretty sure the US manufacturer sources the hair from Asia, just like the other, and their raw materials are prepared there, and only final assembly is done in the US. They should be the same, but they weren’t. The US were better. So, this afternoon I get another call from New York. It’s the same guy, he and his brother run the brush company, they’re the great grandsons of the founder, and have been operating for 100 years. And we talk for an hour. He tells me everything about the industry, how Chinese QA can be a problem, fulfillment, pricing, and just kind of takes the time getting to know me. When I asked why he wasn’t me for samples, he said, “Because I want to invest in you.” So, I have my manufacturer making specialty brushes for a very niche audience, and I just wanted to share. I’m really excited to have found a manufacturer I trust, and the product is so much better than I thought I was going to make. It also feels good to choose a US company. I don’t want to raise the price I had in mind, so I’m just going to eat the cost difference, so I’m not going to make much money on this, but I’m happy to experiment if I can make a great product that makes people happy. I don’t really know where else to post this, it’s been so strange, and I’ve felt really on my own in this. It’s my first time making my own business. It’s just been a crazy experience and a really weird day. I just needed somewhere to share. So, I’m broke, I have piles of orange paint brushes from all over the world scattered around my living room, and I’m hoping to launch in a few months. Thanks for reading!
If you ask any friend who scored exceptionally high on the MCAT for studying advice, they are likely to tell you two things: take lots of practice tests and master the content through self-testing. We’ve already covered how to take practice tests in other blog posts, so for now let’s focus on self-testing.
Self-Testing for the MCAT
Self-testing can involve many layers, from practice problems to mental outlines, but the basic principle is creating scenarios for yourself where you are forced to recall information about the material you studied. The beauty of self-testing is that it doesn’t even matter how accurately you can recall information; the physical act of recall is what strengthens the connections in your brain on a cellular level (this process is called long term potentiation for all the nerds out there). Educational researchers have spent decades trying to understand how we all learn best and this form of self-testing wins out every time. When active recall is paired with spaced-repetition, this strengthens these mental connections more and more. This is the philosophy guiding every step of our FREE Ecourse. To take advantage of self-testing, we recommend working through the Khan Academy videos, prep books, or both and making flashcards for the concepts and definitions that you don’t already understand completely. Then, at the end of your studies for the day, you can review those cards to solidify the content that you learned. For most of us, flashcards are the simplest method of self-testing. You may remember making physical flashcards to learn a language or study for an exam in high school. However, with technology at our disposal, making flashcards has never been easier or more organized. You can even find new, creative ways to make flashcards on your own. Or you can buy a stack of notecards and follow in Andrew’s footsteps by making thousands of physical flashcards. However, if you are looking for tried and true methods that have enabled hundreds of the top scorers in the past, look no further than Quizlet and Anki.
Quizlet is probably the flashcard software that most of you are familiar with. The user interface is intuitive and incredibly user-friendly. We’ve created THOUSANDS of high-quality cards for the MCAT that you can use if you don’t have the time or patience to make your own. However, Quizlet recently removed their spaced-repetition software and so there is no great way to only review the cards that you need to revisit. Using our model for spaced repetition in the FREE MCAT Ecourse, we will walk you through the best ways to maximize these Quizlet cards using spaced repetition. Our decks also use the premium Quizlet software, so you would otherwise have to pay just as much if not more to make the same quality of cards for yourself.
If you haven’t heard of Anki by now, you probably haven’t talked toanyoneinmedicalschool. Anki, with spaced-repetition self-testing, has truly revolutionized medical education as we know it. Anki allows medical students, and MCAT test-takers, to store massive amounts of information in long-term memory. Think of Anki as a bare-bones version of Quizlet, except with an algorithm that dictates when you see new cards. https://preview.redd.it/c4fm1qnviq4b1.png?width=600&format=png&auto=webp&s=6ee0795971cdb8b0ae1c1709107403dc16bef447 After you reveal the answer to a given flashcard, you tell the algorithm whether that card was easy, medium, or hard for you. If it was hard, you may see that card the next day. If it was easy, you may see it in 5 days. https://preview.redd.it/fvqjevkxiq4b1.png?width=564&format=png&auto=webp&s=bcf5ca0abe3d8d2a55a0ebb76f338478d9495ec1 Gradually, the intervals lengthen and so if you choose medium repeatedly for a card you would see it after 2, 4, 8, 12, and then 20 days for example. Anki also allows you to create cards using screenshots on your computer. You can choose which area of the image you want to cover and then the “back of the flashcard answer” will reveal that area. Again, you can choose whether it was easy, medium, or hard to recall that visual answer. https://preview.redd.it/f5qqywnyiq4b1.png?width=566&format=png&auto=webp&s=d47e1e996cb37b414b27a93a0c7093420029e40a The only downside to Anki is that there is a significant start-up cost associated with learning how to use the application. It’s free for all computers and for the Android app, which is nice, but if you want to download Anki to an iPhone that will also cost you $25. To learn to use Anki, I would recommend watching some great Youtube tutorials because Anki is hard to figure out at first. These video tutorial channels helped me a lot. Definitely figure out how to get and use the image occlusion addon and close deletions for your card types and maybe a few others. Here is the list the addons that I ended up using. Whether you end up using Quizlet or Anki, there are options to use pre-made decks. If you are short on time, pre-made Anki decks can help save time. But if you plan on dedicating at least a few months to MCAT studying, please… MAKE YOUR OWN CARDS. This will force you to actively engage in the learning process and your increased score will reflect that. If you don’t have the time, you can easily get access to our higher quality cards as part of the Advanced Pro Plan and use the Quizlet importer add-on to convert these Quizlet cards to your own Anki decks.
Our free ecourse includes 360 AAMC-styled discrete questions, which are built into quizzes within each lesson, and 2,500+ practice questions available with ourAdvanced Pro and Deluxe Pro plans. One of the best ways to test your ability to answer MCAT style questions is to take these quizzes as you learn the material taught in each lesson of our e-course. My name is Theo and I am one of the Head tutors for MCAT Self Prep who scored a perfect 528 on test day. Please reach out to me with any questions about tutoring or Anki/Quizlet using the link at the bottom of my tutoring profile. Warm regards, Theo Bennett Theo Bennett scored a perfect score (528) on the MCAT and has been accepted at Harvard, UPenn, Columbia, UCLA, and other top 10 medical schools across the country.

2023.06.08 08:04 Red-Headed-RoseMy (38M) boyfriend itold me he is put off by my (35F) depression. So should I leave him?
I'm not depressed all the time, I have great days and good times with my boyfriend but now and then I get so overwhelmed with things I just find it hard to cope which gives me really down times which can last a few days sometimes. I try to talk to my boyfriend about it and explain how I feel but he just shuts down on me. He said he doesn't get depressed so doesn't know what to say or how to help me. This makes me feel like a bit of a weirdo. I understand I can't dump all my bad feelings onto him but if I have a down day he withdraws all affection and sometimes I just feel I need a cuddle. I don't expect him to be my therapist or listen to every bad moment I have but the withdrawing of affection makes me feel so bad. I'm not sure if it's me asking too much from him as he has told me my depression puts him off me. We have been through alot and he did have to help me through post natal depression a few years back so I get that was just as hard on him as it was on me. Not sure if we are just completely different people and my depression is affecting his life so maybe I should let him go so he doesn't have to put up with it anymore. Does anyone have advice for me please?
2023.06.08 08:03 delychaeTheatre Portfolio as Film Student
So I’m planning on switching universities from where I’m currently a Professional Media major to a different school where I want to be a Theatre Design & Tech major instead. It’s not a highly selective school so it’s not like I need the best of the best portfolio in the industry, but I do need a bit of help. As mentioned, the admissions office asks for a portfolio for incoming students, but I don’t have one. I just finished my sophomore year as a Pro. Media & Music Performance double major so I was previously working on the TV / News / Film (and music) side of entertainment instead. I’ve also worked on film sets and with media companies, however I’ve not come away from these experiences with a whole lot of things to reference in a portfolio. What kinds of things should my portfolio for this program include and how do I get these things when my background isn’t in theatre previously? I want to know all my options for this! I’ve been trying to get into local theatre productions in order to pad this out, but it’s at that time of year where all the local places have already filled out their cast and crew until fall…… Any help is greatly appreciated, Thanks!

You have multiple interests but don’t how to attract people to your work (for work to be valuable, it needs people that deem it valuable.)
You already have a one-person business but aren’t confident in the quality of your social media posts, newsletters, or content as a whole.
You are already writing online but don’t have a systemized way of creating content that stands out (without templates or copying others).
You haven’t started learning a skill and want to learn one that you can sell on its own, or enhance the impact of every other in-demand skill.
You are earning with your time instead of your mind and want to build a foundation to reverse that.
You have followed the common advice of “learn a skill, sell the skill” with little success (because you don’t have attention, authority, or an audience).

2023.06.08 08:02 bas1cnobodyi feel like fictional characters are watching me and judging me
hello! i just wanna start and say this isn't a vent or anything, i just wanna know if i should care about this. so i originally thought i'd grow out of this, although it's still happening. basically, anytime i find a new show, game, movie, ect. that i like, i feel like the characters are watching me through cameras that are in my house, and i feel they can read my thoughts, see my phone, hear every word, and judge me for everything. it's like my thoughts but in third person. and in my mind it's like i talk to them after they judge me. i feel like they judge me based off how i walk, talk, feel, it's like they're everywhere. it's so annoying becuase it restricts me from doing things i like in "fear" of these fake people judging me for it. it feels like every app i open, every thought i have, every single move i take they talk about it. but, they also compliment me for things. it's like i insult and compliment myself in third person. it's so weird. does anyone know if this is anything i should worry about?
This is now my third time watching Black Panther but my first time watching it since I’ve taken an Afrofuturism class. Now that I know what it is, I understand how great of a movie this really is other than this movie being one of the first representations for Black people in Marvel. This movie does a great job with the futuristic vibe of things. From the first second of the movie a meteor of vibranium hit Africa. The Wakandans used it in order to advance themselves through better technology and a strong fighting military. Soon after that a plant that gives superhuman powers was discovered and taken by the chosen one who they call the Black Panther. From the beginning Black people are depicted as advanced and as the good people in society whereas America is looked at as the bad guys. Even when there are Black characters that depict evil that show up within the movie (such as Micheal B Jordan), they are still advanced with some type of powers, intelligence, or insane fighting skills. This movie was so advanced for its time, it was great to see how Africa is finally being shown as advanced rather than the usual stereotype of being poor. I loved to see how they always jump back and forth between Africa and the U.S and we can see different sides of how the U.S is deciding to handle Wakanda and how they choose to fight the U.S. I specifically was thinking during this movie that yes it is known that the U.S has a great military but it looked like nothing compared to Wakanda. Even without the Black Panther their military could hold their own against any bad guys. Along with this I really enjoyed seeing the strong female representation within the movie. While it did follow the Black Panther’s life, he was surrounded by amazingly talented and smart women who help make him the man he is today. An example of this is his sister who is the head of technology for Wakanda. She continues to advance Wakanda as well as helping her brother with his task of becoming the Black Panther. Other than words of knowledge, she is the reason for his really cool and advanced suit that we all know and love. Another example is most of their security that protects their family is women. These warriors are there for T’challa when he needs a friend or even when he needs help at the last minute when in battle. Overall this was a great movie that shows Black people in a very futuristic role.
2023.06.08 08:00 VacationTop3430Seeking Advice on Transitioning from Learning to Coding to Real Work
Hi everyone, Around a year ago, I embarked on a journey to learn coding. I enrolled in a 100-Day Python course and also took up a web design class. Since then, I have successfully completed the Python course and I'm now nearing the end of the web design class. Throughout this learning process, I have gained valuable knowledge and skills. However, I am struggling to turn this newfound expertise into a side hustle. I'm reaching out to seek advice on where to start. Although I am fairly familiar with openai models, I am unsure of how to take the next step and begin working on real projects. I currently have a day job that sustains me, so financial pressure isn't the main concern. What I truly need is guidance on how to kickstart my journey into doing real work, allowing me to further improve my skills and gain practical experience. Do any of you have suggestions on where I can begin taking on real coding projects? I would greatly appreciate any insights, resources, or recommendations that can help me get started on this exciting new path. Thank you in advance for your valuable advice!
2023.06.08 07:59 Claija79Scaroni: “Of course the players are saddened, but we will explain to them that the idea is to do better and they will understand. Pioli is central to the project.'
The Corriere della Sera interviews the president of Milan, Paolo Scaroni. The central theme is the exoneration of Paolo Maldini, with the reaction of the players to the decision of the Rossoneri club and also the next market moves. Scaroni talks about Maldini. "All of us, and particularly me, have always had excellent relations with Paolo Maldini, who is a gentleman, a person attached to Milan and who did well at Milan. However, we follow a somewhat innovative model, at least for Italy, of club management, which leads us to consider all our activities as collegial: we work in a team. It is an organizational model that is very close to the heart of our shareholder who, let's remember, is a sports specialist who boasts success in his activities, so when he suggests something we pay great attention, because we think it brings innovations.' Couldn't Maldini really stay in this model? “In this organization we had the impression that Paolo felt uncomfortable, and when you are uncomfortable it is better to separate.” "In the meantime, I remember that in four years we have invested more than the others (200 million), someone will say not always well, but our shareholders have allowed us to make a strong team and we will continue together on this path. I think we will have to make some sales, and conclude some important purchases: we are ambitious.' Who will run the market by? "It will be in the hands of a team that integrates different skills, with the ad Giorgio Furlani who also has the sports area to coordinate, together with professionals like Geoffrey Moncada and the coach Pioli: we expect him to have his say in these choices. In addition to RedBird's international experts.' Scaroni continues: "RedBird believes in analyzing the characteristics of players in a scientific way, of course, something that has been done in the Premier League for years: they have managed to adapt models born for other sports to football. We must combine individual skills, personal intuition in discovering talents and knowing how to insert them into our environment with these quantitative feedbacks. We want to bring together the best of our past with the best of the future that RedBird brings us. I hold on to the past, but why should we give up skills and innovations? Then the results will talk, it counts to win the games, I never liked losing and much less Gerry Cardinale.” On the attractiveness that Maldini represented: "True, very true and I am very grateful to him. I have to say that today, and it doesn't sound unrewarding, we need less: Milan who came out of Yonghong Li's management struggled to attract talent, today's Milan, who won the Scudetto and arrived in the Champions League semi-finals, I think it's more attractive." On the possible entry of Ibra into the management of the club: "I have the impression that he wants to take a sabbatical. Then there remains a friend, a person to whom we owe a lot, because in the most difficult moments he allowed us to turn. If he comes up with ideas, we will be the first to listen to them.' On the reactions of the players to Maldini's farewell, Scaroni declares: "That they are grieved seems natural to me. On the other hand they are professionals accustomed to change, they will understand that this is done with the idea of doing better. We will explain it to them. Then they will remain tied to Maldini, as right.' On Pioli and on the rumors that Maldini would have preferred Pirlo in his place: 'I don't want to express myself on the idea of exemption, but yes absolutely, Pioli is central to the project.' https://www.ilnapolista.it/2023/06/scaroni-ringrazio-maldini-ma-nel-milan-si-decide-in-team-paolo-sembrava-a-disagio/

2023.06.08 07:58 fearlessglitter13I fell in love with a chaotic girl then she broke up with me
I’m a girl and have been dating a girl who is diagnosed with bipolar. We’re both the same age 25 but I’m in a much better place than her in life. I have a master's degree, a good job, and live in my apartment in a nice area. While she just started online university, lives with her friend rent free, parties every weekend, her parents pay for her, and she recently quit her job. I am more successful than her but it didn’t matter to me because I care more about our connection and felt like she’s passionate about her future goals. One thing that bothered me was she never wanted me to pay for anything, I told her I want to take her on the next date and she insisted on paying for it. She then asked her dad to pay for the next date which is ridiculous because I could easily afford it. Eventually, I found out she cheats on her exams so that was disappointing. When she came to my apartment for the first time, she asked me how am I affording it and I said “I work” She then said “oh so I’m paying for our dates and you’re paying for rent” I felt that it made her uncomfortable. She was being affectionate and physical for 3 hours straight so I thought everything was good. She got extremely drunk that night. Then the next day she broke up with me because dating stresses her out and she invited me to go partying with them instead. I’m so frustrated because she didn’t explain what was wrong. Do you think she felt guilty because I’m more successful and she wanted chaos?
2023.06.08 07:58 kylexyz00123 [M4F] [Relationship] Ohio/Worldwide- Let's Be Each Other's Everything (Longest post ever?)
Brace yourselves, this is gonna be a long one. Table of Contents 1…… The Main Goal 2…… What I’m Seeking 3…… Personality 4…… Interests 5…… Physical Characteristics (with pics) 6…… Expectations of You 7…… Living Situation 8…… Deal Breakers 9…… Closing Remarks (1) The Main Goal: Well if you’re browsing this subreddit then much like me, you were alone this weekend and I’m sure you’d like to change that as much as me. I won’t lie, I am going through a rough part of my life right now. It’s difficult for me to find the energy for anything at the moment and I’m just really seeking affection in general, anything that will give me a push. I don’t want to be that person who brings everyone down but I could really use someone to talk to right now. I’d really like to find someone who’s similar to me so much to the point that we do everything together and talk about everything while not having to pretend to be interested. I want someone with whom we can mutually spew our emotions onto and have those feelings reciprocated. Not an emotional punching bag, but an emotional teddy bear to hug and cuddle until everything feels better as many times as we need. There’s people who I’m sure have told you the same, they’ll be there no matter how many times you need the support, no matter how many times the insecurities and bad thoughts come back but they don’t mean it. I will be the exception, I’m not so ignorant to think some nice words and tales of relating to you will magically forever heal whatever ails you then get mad when you seek the same support again. Mental ailments are rarely temporary and I don’t care about someone because they’re perfect, caring about someone means being there no matter how many times they need you to be. It doesn’t feel like a chore, it doesn’t get old, and it never will. (2) (2.a) What I'm Seeking: I will upfront let you know if I’m clicking better with someone else or if you’re the one, I’m not here to tread the sea of fish or keep my options open, I’m here for one singular person. (2.b) Relationship: A relationship is difficult for me right now, it’s been nearly half a year since I got out of my last relationship and the reasons for it ending are partially responsible for how I’ve been feeling and why it’s so hard for me to seek the comfort I so desperately crave. I will tell you about it but for the sake of not treating the entirety of the internet as my therapist, it’ll be in private. I really need the comfort of intimacy and the warmth of someone who cares. I'm not going to feel better if I just sulk and don’t move on. This is my attempt to get better, I’ll admit I’m not great right now and I don’t expect you to be either. If we can help each other heal, then I’d be more than happy :) A relationship isn’t just being there for when someone’s at their best. Even if a relationship is hard at the moment, I do want a life partner and I don’t want to be alone. Things aren’t going to get easier without you so I don’t want to hesitate. I view my other as an equal, I don’t like categorizing us into specific roles. We take care of each other and treat each other how we like to be treated, whatever that is, it's as simple as that. I don't care if you're "successful" or not, living simple lives with our days filled with love is the ultimate measure of success to me. (3) Personality: (3.a) On the Surface: As you can tell I can be rather… stoic but that’s largely due to my current stressors, I truthfully am goofy and fun loving but I just can’t find it in me right now. I want to return to that but without someone to light up my world it’s been difficult to just have fun and enjoy stuff. I’m definitely more introverted, you won’t catch me at any parties or really outside at all. I definitely prefer being home though the occasional outing is not out of the question and one day I’d like to travel to other countries because I think that kind of perspective is important. (3.b) The Core of My Being: I like being a spectator to it all and if we bear witness to humanity burning or its miraculous recovery, I want to watch it with you. I enjoy watching humanity advance, less so when it devolves but I want to watch it to the end nonetheless. I’m both a realist and someone who lives with my head in the clouds dreaming of scenarios or worlds that don’t exist. I’m saying that I enjoy a good narrative and can suspend my disbelief to enjoy something but you won’t catch me refusing vaccines or ignoring blatant facts for the sake of some pseudo science or witch doctor’s remedy. I’m an atheist but I do not rule out existence after death, not because I’m agnostic but because due to the nature of potentially infinite time at some point after how many googol years with a googol amount of 0s after that, something’s bound to replicate your consciousness perfectly at some point. It’s actually a really fascinating topic I like talking about. If infinite time and infinite possibilities exist, does non existence exist? Though that’s an awfully existentially dreadful thought process considering the ramifications of infinite existence and infinite possibilities during said infinite existence. I would say I’m confidently left leaning and I don’t think I could truly get along with anyone right leaning, at least America’s definition of right leaning. Left and right seems to have just become; do people deserve to suffer or do they deserve to live good lives? Being political is not something I expected to become but how can you not be when crimes against human rights are being passed on a daily basis and at the end of the day, everything’s political. Oftentimes I imagine the perfect moment as relaxing with my significant other playing games or cuddling in a cold room under blankets. I value that special someone above all of the existential thoughts, the bad of the world, the good of the world, they practically become my world. So many worries wash away when I’m with them. I don’t know if that’s the defense mechanism my brain created to not feel bad 24/7 but if it is, I’m currently without it. (3.c) Insecurities: I talk of philosophy and politics here but really I spend most of my time just playing games, watching stuff, and trying to not be sleep deprived. I’m also nowhere near as well spoken, heck sometimes I feel like my speech is broken. I won’t claim to be something I’m not, I sit at home while I complain about the world doing nothing about it wishing I had someone here with me. I’m not noble nor do I really want to be, I have morals I uphold but much like most other hypocrites I acknowledge that my comfortable life is built on the suffering of others without doing anything about it. Why? My sleep problems? Am I depressed? Is that why I have no energy to do anything? Do I just think nothing I could do could help? I can’t nail it down myself, maybe it’s a mix of everything, maybe I’m just a bad person. I have always told myself that if I had wealth I would help people but if I get that kind of wealth will I just become a wealth hoarder who tries to justify my riches as something I earned rather than something given to me through incredibly lucky circumstances? If I do help people is it because I’m a good person or out of guilt? Will I die alone? I feel like I drive everyone away with my clinginess, I get paranoid often and need reassurance often. It’s something I want to work on, something I’ve been trying to work on. Hearing that someone cares about me just never gets old. I value self awareness even if it’s painful. (3.d) Socializing: I’m definitely a socially anxious/awkward mess, especially around strangers. I do feel a large amount of anxiety in public, people can’t tell by looking at my face since I kind of go stone faced in an attempt to block everything out but yeah you’ll notice that if we go out in public. Growing up my pediatrician said I was probably autistic, never got a formal diagnosis so that’s just great. But yeah that explains why I can’t make eye contact with people, I kinda just stare at the ground and avoid their gaze at all costs. A lot of these social struggles go away to a great degree once I know you for a bit but yeah I apologize for how terrible I am at socializing at first. Don’t let my social struggles fool you though, I love cuddling and being close with my person. (3.e) Sexuality: I am a heterosexual male, though I’m not very masculine like at all. I may even be a bit feminine sometimes. Not that I believe any activity or manner of acting belongs to a gender but I don’t know how else to describe it. I’m definitely super affectionate and love it when my partner is too. I am open to dating demi people but I do have a libido so I don't think asexual would work out. (4) Interests: (4.a) Video Games: As stated before, I do spend a lot of my time playing video games. It’s been hard lately with me having no energy but I really do want to play more games and have a good time playing them with you! I primarily play on PC though I do have a switch. I’m primarily into platform fighters, roguelikes, open world, survival, and sandbox games. As for single player story games, I enjoy watching them through twitch or youtube but for the most part I don’t play them myself. I’d watch you play them though! Here’s a list of games we can play: -Minecraft (Java) -Risk of Rain 2 -Gunfire Reborn -Roboquest -7 Days to Die -Phasmophobia -Rust -Unturned -Bloons TD 6 -Platform fighters: Super Smash Bros. Melee, Slap City, Multiversus, Flash Party, Fraymakers Whatever you want to play I’ll give it a shot! I will say that League bores me to death but I’ll play it for you :) I try to avoid MMOs, not because I don’t like them but because of how addicted I can get to them. I enjoy learning games in-depth so MMOs can be a fast track to addiction. I recently got Kerbal Space Program 2 and ehhh not really worth it right now but hopefully later it will be? I’m super excited for Tears of the Kingdom! In the far off future I’m excited for Rivals of Aether 2 which is a platform fighter releasing in 2024, let me know of your most anticipated releases and I’ll see if I could play them with you! Also I never got into FPS games but I could totally see myself playing like CoD with you or Escape From Tarkov. Any FPS really, I’m down. I am a fan of Pokemon but with how things have been lately I don’t know how long that will last. Pixelmon is a common Pokemon mod I play for Minecraft if you want to play that! Also if I say I want to play something with you I mean it but there are often times when no matter how much I want to I'm just drained and can do little more than lay in bed so please don't think I'm making an excuse. (4.b) Science: I really enjoy keeping up with the latest advances in pretty much everything, it could be biology, technology, astronomy, anything! I love seeing progression and I love talking about it! Really I could go on and on about what I’m obsessing about that day. I particularly love technology, ask me for my laptop specs I dare you. When I was little I always wanted to be a scientist of any kind but then insomnia and fear of college stuff hit me like a truck aaaand that’s the end of that dream. (4.c) Anime: You got me, I like anime but I’d like to think my tastes are benign. Here’s some of my favorites I can list from the top of my head: - To Your Eternity - Vinland Saga - Spice and Wolf - Re:Zero - Mob Psycho - Dr. Stone - Attack on Titan - Spy x Family - My Hero Academia - Ranking of Kings - Demon Slayer Okay I can go on and on but I will say I don’t like pointless fan service and the spamming of cliche anime moments. I mostly enjoy action and anything well animated if it doesn’t have a potato story. Heck Demon Slayer could be my top 3 out of season 2’s animation alone. I don’t watch slice of life often or romance but I would with you! (4.d) Misc: I’m not going to go on and on about the tiniest little things when the main ones are covered but I’ll watch pretty much any show with you and anything really. I like random youtube videos that explain some kind of lore or mystery, sometimes mini documentaries too. As for food I looove sushi and I’m a sucker for fast food. Okay and candy, definitely candy. I used to play tennis but haven’t really had the opportunity nor friends to play it with and I’m way too socially anxious to seek it out. Also I will say that when we move to something like discord I type waaaay more casually. I’m not going to expect long paragraphs back and forth like we’re writing English papers for each other, I do enjoy long conversations but seriously don’t worry about having to put the utmost effort into every response, I just like making good first impressions I guess. (5) (5.a) My Physical Characteristics: I’m 5’8 (172cm), 128 pounds (58kg), with curly brown hair and blue eyes. I like keeping my hair long in the winter and cutting it in the summer. I’m pretty slim in general so if you’re looking for someone large, that’s not me. I don’t work out but my work is pretty physical so at least I’m not totally inactive. I don’t have the urge to work out or gain muscle but I do want to maintain my slim figure so if I start losing control of that I’ll work out. I like to keep my face shaved because I don’t think I look good with a beard/mustache so if you’re into those I apologize. I have an average amount of body hair? I’d prefer to be completely shaved but it’s easy to lose motivation with that battle, if you prefer shaved then I’d have no problem complying. Anyways here’s what I look like: https://imgur.com/a/MZZgf2t (5.b) My Physical Preferences: Having physical preferences makes me feel shallow, if I could make myself not have them I would but unfortunately that’s now how that works. I don’t care if you’re shorter or taller than me and I don’t care if you weigh more or less than me. All I ask is that you’re slim-average weight. I would never ask for someone to be something I’m not. I don’t care about tattoos or piercings. (6) Expectations of You: I am not looking for someone “exciting” or someone to “keep me on my toes” I’m not looking for someone to cater to my every whim or anything like that. I don’t care if you’re “boring” or if you aren’t “successful”. I know it’s a common thing for people to not want a “boring” relationship and to seek something argumentative or something with constant challenges but I just want to be with you. During the exciting times, the boring times, and everything in-between, all of it will be great with you! Maybe we do argue sometimes or maybe there will be challenges but that will never be something I purposefully seek out and I don’t want that to be something you seek out either. I will not play tricks on you and I will not play mind games, I expect the same from you. We all have personal measures of success we may or may not have lived up to but what I care about most is our commitment to each other. If we have each other we can get through tough times, near the ends of our lives I want us to look back and feel that this life together was worth more than anything. That’s not saying I want us to be haphazard, I don’t want us to make poor decisions for the sake of yolo and I want us to always be rational, especially with each other. I want you to be someone I can trust to make decisions and weigh the options with a level head, I’ll try my best to live up to the same for you. Most of all I want empathy, understanding, someone to feel the utmost comfort and trust in. (7) Living Situation: Currently my life is pretty relaxed, I work 3 times a week as a night shift stocker. I currently live in a 2 bedroom apartment with my roommate but we’re looking to move into someplace larger by the end of the year if everything works out. The internet is weirdly great for Ohio too like I have fiber and later this year we’re supposed to be getting dedicated fiber so that’s neat. I’m not attached to Ohio so the ultimate goal living location wise is probably moving to a country that won’t send you into a lifetime of dealing with the repercussions from one medical emergency. (8) Deal Breakers: Might as well make this simple and make it a list. - Anti-vaxxers - Unironically believing astrology - Right wingers - Hard drugs (occasional 420 and alcohol is fine, may even join you) - Wanting children, there was a time when I was younger when I wanted children but with the state of the word that’s a definite no and I feel like I wouldn’t be able to handle the stress. I’d love a stress free life with as much time with you as possible. - Homophobic - Transphobic - Racist - Super Religious - Don’t be a bigot and don’t deny facts. (9) Closing Remarks: Well you made it, I was thinking that finding someone I’d be willing to put a lifetime of effort into at least required this much effort. If I think of anything more I’ll update the post. Also about timezones, it really doesn’t matter where in the world you are. I don’t have a sleep schedule and I have most of the week off from work so it really doesn’t matter. I request that in your response you do put effort into it, it doesn’t have to be anywhere near as long as this but at least enough so I know that you read this and enough about you so I know why you saw potential compatibility. I will seriously read all of it and respond the best I can. I do also request a pic included in your response (sfw please) or one soon after we start talking to prove identity, I’ll send identity proving pics too. As long as this post is up, you can send a reply!
2023.06.08 07:58 ShizomaruAsakuraMe (24M) And My Ex (22F) Used to Stay In Touch...But Recently It Feels Off...
So like; obviously we're not dating, and haven't for years now. We keep in touch here and there and of course, I help them out when I can if they are in trouble. (Because that's just how I am, helping others--And treating others the way I want to be treated.) But--There was a slight catch within it. While we ended things, she also wanted me to talk to her when I could and tell her if I ever dated, had sex, etc. With someone else; just in the off-chance that we ever did go down that road again together. If I ever open that door again; and vice versa. Which I'm kinda....Not really about, but thought it seemed fair considering how she's still in my life...However.... When I saw her again and spoke to her long ago sorta recently(?); she randomly changed up while I was helping her move. And said "...I don't think who I'm fucking, dating, etc. Is honestly any of your business." Despite me just simply talking to her about where we stood mutually, so that there was no confusion. The only reason I mention it, is because around that time--We turned on each other's location if there was ever an emergency. As I did with my little brother and other friends and family who are in my life. Now I don't check in on her like that when it comes to where she is all the time; and do a small "Check-In" Call once every blue moon, but lately...She hasn't picked up, returned and even hung up on some of my calls. Not even some texts. (A little backstory, she moved in with her best friend co-workers recently after fighting looking for an apartment n such; so I always assume she's either partying or just busy slammed with work) And the one time I check-in quickly; I peek at her location after its been a little while. And mid-streaming on Twitch; I see her location isn't at her usual place wit her friends...But at a hotel far north of town. I felt...I don't know. Mad? Conflicted? Sad? My mind only assumes the deed is being done. And I know I shouldn't give a fuck but like--I don't know. I feel so mixed, but I felt my heart drop. TL;DR : My ex and I used to be in contact with eachother constantly until about a month ago. Prior to that we spoke about letting eachother know who we're dating/Having sex with in the event we decided to get back together but she later--Forgo'ed this rule when we last saw eachother. She has not returned calls or texts of mine, and when I decide to check up on her location and see she's not at home, but at a hotel about 30 mins. Away from her house. I feel like I shouldn't feel anything, but it caused me to almost break down in a heartbreak and I don't know why, nor what to do. What should I do in this moment?
TLDR: Be liberal but pick a progressive running mate lmao to get exactly 306-232. VP: Karen Bass (worst option at start, but that does mean it makes it extremely hard to get good RNG on states you don't want to win like OH, FL, but still leaves you with good room on the states you must win like PA, AZ, and NV) Visits: Split between WI, PA & GA, you should try to get Georgia +2 at end, PA by like +5 or 6, and WI by +10 Difficulty: Normal Q1: We're going to build back better than ever before. I'm going to work for every American, repairing our critical infrastructure at home and our standing in the world. Q2: We're going to defeat COVID and get America working again. I'm going to push for this day and night from the moment I step into the White House. Q3: I should be out there talking to the American people. That doesn't mean we do rallies with 10 thousand people, but we can't afford to just sit around in our basement for the next five months. Q4: Who authorized this meeting? Did I authorize this meeting? We're telling Bernie Sanders that he'd better fall in line. We have an election to win. Q5: I'm not going to spend the 2020 campaign focusing on 2019 issues. We need to talk about our plans to fight this COVID-19 epidemic and rebuild the economy. Q6: I talked with a lot of people before I made my decision, and Karen Bass stood out as someone with the judgment and experience to work with me in the White House. Q7: I'm proud of my son. He's overcome a lot to find success in life. This campaign is about the American people and their struggles and opportunities. I'm not going to spend my time talking about Trump and Ukraine. Q8: Being a police officer is one of the hardest jobs there is, but they got it very wrong here. I have every confidence that Hennepin County will take the appropriate action against the officers involved in this case. Q9: We need to put $2000 in the hands of every American, and we need to put forward a truly substantial relief package for our struggling small businesses and job creators. Q10: Two of my old friends, Jimmy Carter and James Baker, came out with a great study on election integrity a few years ago, and it's time we put their recommendations into action. I think this would represent a reasonable compromise between making it easy to vote, while ensuring our elections are secure from fraud. Q11: I'm proposing a pretty big bill, you might have noticed, around $2 trillion to rebuild our roads, develop mass transit and green energy, and repair critical human infrastructure needs as well. We must move forward as a country. Q12: We're not going to have a national lockdown. That's just fear-mongering from the Republicans to distract from how they've mishandled the pandemic. This is something each locality can decide for themselves, based on local conditions. Q13: The Court has had nine justices since 1869, and any attempt to change that is sure to destroy the Court's legitimacy even further. We must look at other kinds of reform. Q14: We can sit around all day worrying about tactics, but the fact of the matter is, we need to win elections. If Democrats did a better job of appealing to all Americans, we wouldn't be in this predicament right now. Q15: It's the debate, I don't care enough to look for best RNG lmao. Q16: Jill and I are praying for a full and speedy recovery for President Trump. As someone who has dealt with tragedy, you never want to see this kind of thing happen to anyone. Q17: We're going to be fair, but we're going to be tough. I've always supported the rule of law in my career, for decades now, regardless of what some right-wing websites try to say about me. Q18: People know all about Donald Trump and the dozens of scandals that have unfolded around him. I think we're better off talking about solutions to the COVID-19 crisis and the economy. Q19: The right-wing media wants to present me as some kind of a gun-grabber, when that couldn't be further from the truth. My only crime is not parroting the NRA's every last word on this issue. Q20: These attacks are wrong and they should prosecuted to the full extent of the law. At the same time, we need more answers from China. Millions of lives and trillions of dollars have been lost, yet they continue to block any serious investigation into the origins of this virus. Q21: We've got a small troop presence in Afghanistan right now, and we should probably keep it that way. I'm confident that country will continue to gradually stabilize over time, with a consistent but minimal investment from the United States. Q22: Our relationship with China, depends on China. If they show a greater willingness to cooperate, then we can rebuild our relationship from the damage that Trump inflicted. If they continue to act in a hostile manner, we'll have to react accordingly. Q23: If Trump thought he was going to win this election, he wouldn't be saying these kinds of things. I'm confident that we're going to win, and that the American people will have full faith in the outcome this year. Q24: This is a fake laptop. End of story. I don't know how it got passed around, but you have to strongly suspect Russian intelligence or other nefarious actors here. Q25: I want us to focus on Pennsylvania, with maybe a quick stop over the border in Ohio.
Everybody talk about seek help if u feel depressed but actually it's pretty difficult as i found it , when u jump in adult life u have allot work on front of u to realize how adult world work , but all friends and stuff kinda fade away specially that adult life it's pretty good at sorting out who was real friend so life is becoming pretty lonely even if u have partner u don't want to just throw ur problems straight cause u are worried to not put this weight on them they care of u so they would be worried, so as i tried to jump on some apps which are meant to help in difficult time , idea is great and all but it's not working pretty well, it's hard to open yourself on difficult situation specially open up to just random person out there. Especially that everyone have own preferences to trust ppl idk why probably it's mark of your childhood , it's weird how ur brain can trick u to sort out ppl u can trust only because of they gender , age etc does only i have that or u feel the same way ?
2023.06.08 07:55 NDradioguyAnyone have experience with the ribfest vendors for their fav racks of ribs TO GO?
Looking to pick up a tasty rack of ribs from ribfest while its in town, for lunch. Not looking to shop locally, just at ribfest. Anyone here gone or know anyone who's gone regularly that has kind of chosen a favorite vendor or two? I noticed the price of a rack of ribs can vary within like $5-6 between the vendors. Typically around that $30-$36 range. Also during lunch its free sides and free entry. Any other strategies I should know about for take out/to go? ie how do you get the sauces home, sides etc? Obviously I have a fundamental understanding, but seeking fav vendors ya'll go back for year to year etc. If my money was longer, I would get like 3-4 1/2 racks and kind of judge myself, but its kind of cost prohibitive with the rack being by far the best overall value, in my opinion.

How does your process look like? Sprouting lids to separate the water and grains has been working really well for me. I'm still striving to get consistent carbonation but it's working well enough so far! Happy to hear any tips, specially on sugar amounts
2023.06.08 07:53 ThrowRAgirlie62626Girl tells my (23f) bf (23m) “she’s so lucky to have you”
He plays with this girl on Xbox, they usually don’t play alone together but once I got home and he was playing alone with her. I thought it was weird. Caught him looking at her tiktok (I went through his phone one night, I know it’s not right but that’s all I found) and she post mainly thirst traps. I looked in his previously watched videos after I saw her name in his search … I didn’t confront him about it because I didn’t want him to turn it on me for going through his phone. She starts a group chat on fb messenger with all the people they play the game with. But then she starts messaging him randomly, to get on the game or send memes. I told him I didn’t want them messaging because I don’t know the girl, and i didn’t really care to discuss further on it but he made it a big deal by saying “she literally lives in ____” like it’s so far away that nothing would happen. Like what does that mean you know ? So what if she lived close?? Lol and yeah I know she lives there but you can cheat without physically cheating also ? .. anyway. Don’t like the girl because she will say things like “your gf is so lucky” “she’s so lucky to have you” I just find that really weird. Like as a girl I feel that’s definitely her way of putting subtle doubt in his mind about me. he says she always compliments me and says how pretty I am. But I also find that strange too. I trust him because he always says “she IS lucky” or “yes SHE is” etc etc .. if she says things like that. I’m making this post because he told me he deleted their messages together so I wouldn’t get mad about her messaging him. Like what??? I asked him why he deleted them if what he said is true that she just messages him to get on the game or send memes. Like why would that make me mad? I told him it’s worse that he deleted it because i can’t see what was actually said. He said he’s not hiding anything and I said but deleting is literally hiding it. And it started and argument. I just know how girls are and I want him to understand I will know a girls intentions well before he will be able to even catch on. Should I just trust what he says, tell him to stop playing / messaging her and feel like an ass? TLDR: bf deletes messages between him and a girl from Xbox. He says to trust him because he’s doing nothing wrong but the girl obviously likes him.
2023.06.08 07:53 Proper_Grapefruit806Weight and Dietary Concerns (18 F)
Hi there, I’m a prospective college student living on my own for the first time with a very limited budget, and have been experiencing mental health issues for years. I’d say probably about a year ago I started severely limiting what I ate because I just wasn’t very hungry; I mean I’ve always been like that since middle school but I didn’t really start making it a dietary thing until a year ago. I was at 148 pounds at five feet seven inches, and hated the residual fat just hanging out on my body. Now I’m 118 pounds at five foot seven. I know now that it was not unhealthy where I was at, and I had really no reason to feel the way I did, but that’s how I felt. I denied having an eating disorder and still kind of deny it but I know that my food intake is not normal. It went from a meal a day to maybe a meal every other day and some saltines or peanuts between days. This was never really a conscious decision, more of a subconscious way of my body not wanting to gain weight. Also, it was a combination of either not being able to afford grocery bills or simply being too depressed to get up and make myself food until I got so nauseous I felt I would throw up. I do now have a fear of gaining fat, but I know my current weight isn’t very healthy. This boils down to my question. Lately, I have absolutely no appetite, and even when I eat I feel I can only eat in small amounts at a time, often having to force myself to eat unless I hadn’t eaten in close to twenty four hours or more. I get extremely gassed from a small amount of exercise (i.e. panting and seeing spots of color after climbing only two flights of stairs at a normal pace.) Today I played ultimate frisbee with some friends and I could only run not even a quarter of the time they were before I was wheezing and having heart palpitations. I’m concerned that I’ve gotten to a point where I am now exhibiting signs of protein-energy malnutrition. I get winded from doing something as simple as flexing my bicep. It’s pathetic, I know, but that’s where I’m at. I also have been experiencing increased levels of anxiety, irritability and depression, in conjunction with these other symptoms. I’m also concerned about potential anemia for these reasons but I don’t believe my symptoms are severe enough. I got my blood work done two years ago and it showed my cholesterol was a bit low, so was my Iron, Vitamin D, and GI Immunity. I don’t remember how she determined the last part, it was so long ago. I don’t currently have a primary care provider but will be seeing one at the end of the month to set up an initial visit because I just moved. Should I go to the ER and get my levels checked before I go see my doctor since my symptoms are a bit concerning? Also, I would like to note that my blood pressure is usually around 90/60 when it gets taken, my resting heart rate is usually around 60 bpm and according to a website (I know they’re not too accurate) my BMI should be around 18.6% with my current height and weight, though obviously I don’t know exactly what it is unless I go get checked out.
