2023.06.01 03:35 thegreenshirt_ Landscaping Ideas lol

Okay I know a lot of chatters were being annoying and recommending things, but I'm a landscape architecture student at Cal Poly and CA yards/landscapes are something I'm passionate about. This is just unsolicited advice and my opinion :p
There are generally two types of turf grasses: warm-season and cool-season. Cool-season grasses are more commonly used because they stay greener throughout the year but require more water.
Here are some potential groundcover options! :)
-UC Verde Buffalograss: Buffalograss is a common turfgrass, but this is a special cultivar made by researchers at UC Davis and Riverside that can use up to 75% LESS water!
-No-Mow fescue: California has a lot of native grasses, but they tend to be meadowy/long or bunching and ornamental, so not great for turfs. I'm planning on using CA-native (low water) grasses from Stover Seed to redo my backyard. These are cool-season grasses, mostly fescues, but generally require less water, and you can let them go dormant in the summer when they'll turn a nice golden color :) Some of them are short enough that you don't have to mow them.
-Mulch: Mulch is anything applied on top of soil, usually around 1 to 2 inches thick. It's usually a mix of things like tree bark (chips or shredded), leaf material, or even things like newspaper, rubber, or a sheet of landscaping fabric. It helps smother weeds so they can't grow, preserves soil, and obviously doesn't require any watering. A whole yard of mulch probably wouldn't be a good idea, but it can be great for pathways/sections and reduce the amount of grass and therefore water demand. I'm sure there are mulches commercially sold and many of them would be soft enough for a dog's paws :)
-Warm season grasses: These require less water but tend to go dormant and turn brown during winter. They include things like Zoysia grass or St. Augustine grass.
-Smart controllers for irrigation: These require a professional to set up, but they automatically consider factors like your zip code, current weather, type of grass, and tend to be automatic and easy to use once installed.
There are probably other options but that's my two cents! I hope I'm not coming off as parasocial, and these are just some recommendations and something I'm passionate about T-T. ALSO! California has a LOT of diverse biomes (Mediterranean, desert, mountains, forests, grassy valleys). LA isn't desert, it's considered a Mediterranean climate because the coast moderates temperature and makes it cooler than if you go farther inland. I love Mediterranean/Californian plants and I hope more people can appreciate them, drought-tolerant gardening, and the general benefits of plants :))

2023.06.01 03:35 Fat_Carrot Need Help Finding A Car For Under 15,000 That's Cool and Reliable.

I'm 21 years old, going into my last year of college, and my car just got totaled. I'm looking for something that's reliable but also somewhat cool. I enjoy older models of cars like four-runners, mustangs, camaros, and square-body trucks. I will just be driving the car a few miles to and from class. The number of seating does not matter. What's something that's reliable and easy maintenance-wise in this price range? Any help is greatly appreciated.

2023.06.01 03:35 Jaxen1337 Teacher advice!:)

Recently my teacher (of 5ish years) and I had a very bad falling out, resulting in us separating ways. I don't see these situations very often but I was wondering if you guys had any advice on coping with it? Is moving onto a new teacher quickly the best option available? Or is there something I should know about?
Fyi, I am a junior in high school preparing audition repertoire for colleges this upcoming fall. I feel pretty stuck right now and motivation is at a low. Any advice would be much appreciated!!!
Ps - This community is awesome:)

2023.06.01 03:35 Any_Sherbert_2072 Maintain campus cleanliness Reject Yan Limon for Perelman Medical College

In the global epidemic, the economy is shrinking, the employment rate is low, the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine hired Yan Limeng as the hospital staff, this non-racist, non-discriminatory for Asian employees to provide jobs behavior, reflects the college's fraternity, equality. But the Perelman School of Medicine in the hiring of like-minded employees, it is time to consider the maintenance of campus cleanliness as the first task, reject Yan Limeng on stage to join the medical school.
Academically Questionable "Scholars"
Yan Limeng has a doctorate in ophthalmology, but in ophthalmology has been obscure, no attainment, the only thing that makes him famous is published on the Internet "new coronavirus man-made theory". Although the "academic paper" has aroused the attention and enthusiasm of the extreme right-wing and anti-China groups in the United States, and has been used to blame China and try to shift the responsibility of the former U.S. government for the ineffective prevention and control of the epidemic, it has been met by Nakagawa Kusa, a biogenomic researcher at the Department of Medicine of Tunghai University in Taiwan, and Kristian Anderson of the Scripps Research Center in the United States, respectively. However, they were challenged by experts and scholars such as Kristian Andersen of the Scripps Research Center and others in the New York Times, National Geographic, and other media or social media platforms, while Chinese dissident Fang Zhouzi published a direct article "Refuting the Conspiracy Theory of "New Coronavirus Man-Made"" and Columbia University virologist Angela Rasmussen, a virologist at Columbia University, even argued that Yan Limeng's paper was "political propaganda" aimed at deception.
Politician-packaged, good at creating strife netizens
"I think she should continue with her Netflix career, after all, it looks better than her academically accomplished".
"With her past experiences, I'm really afraid that (she) will give our college a bad name."
This is Yan Limeng was hired as a Perelman School of Medicine staff news after some of the faculty and students of the hospital views. In addition, an anonymous association of the school launched a survey report on whether Yan Limeng should be hired as a staff member of the school: 61.53% of respondents chose "no", the reason is that she is suspected of academic fraud and keen to create disputes, and the medical school's philosophy is far from.
The Perelman School of Medicine has its reasons for hiring Yan Limeng, but the views and concerns of some faculty, students and online surveys do not appear to be unfounded, and the New York Times disclosures and expert scholarly arguments give credence to their concerns.
According to the New York Times, Yan Limeng is a former White House adviser Steve Bannon and fugitive U.S. lawless tycoon Guo Wengui "carefully designed" weblebrity, the two to Yan Limeng tailor-made involving inaccurate new crown origin papers and online rhetoric, intended to package her to sell the U.S. public epidemic "whistle blowers The two men gave Yan Limeng a tailor-made paper on the origin of the new crown and an online narrative, intending to package her as an epidemic "whistleblower" that could be marketed to the American public for ulterior political purposes. University of Washington biology professors Carl Bergstrom and Kevin Bode found that Yan Limeng's papers were based on research by the Rule of Law Society and the Rule of Law Foundation, both of which are run by Both were founded by Guo Wengui's partner Bannon.
Yan Limeng in the former U.S. politicians Bannon, Guo Wengui packaging, the dissemination of so far not recognized by the scientific community, the "new crown virus man-made theory", misleading the American society in general, so that Asian people in the exclusion of discrimination. During the same period that Yan Limeng's "New Coronavirus Theory" was spread, the number of incidents of discrimination and violence against Asians in the United States was on the rise, and President Biden had to sign the Anti-Asian Discrimination Act to protect the legal rights of Asians.
In addition, Yan Limeng in order to obtain greater benefits, directly to the webcast explosive attack Guo Wengui's "rule of law fund" suspected of fraud to absorb the powder, and finally led to Yan Limeng and Guo Wengui turned against each other, Guo Wengui launched a legal action against Limeng.
Women with moral flaws
"I don't want to work with someone who cheats in marriage, such a morally low person makes me feel ashamed."
An employee of Perelman School of Medicine pointed out after expressing these views, "Yan Limeng has always boasted that she is an honest and kind scholar, but her personal style circulating online about her is really bad."
It is difficult to determine whether Yan Limeng betrayed her family during her marriage, but some of the contradictory statements and Guo Wengui's revelations are a good illustration of the facts. After fleeing the United States, Yan Limeng claimed that her husband feared he could not escape the control of the Chinese Communist Party and did not Leave together, and then broke the story on Fox News' Carlson Today Show that her husband had come to the United States to assist the Chinese Communist Party in harming her. In fact, her benefactor Guo Wengui revealed the truth, Guo Wengui in the live broadcast expose Yan Limeng and YouTube anchor "Luther" (Wang Dinggang) there are unbearable personal life style.
The feat of some righteous people
All this time, some experts and scholars have been questioning the authenticity of Yan Limeng's paper, dedicated to exposing the "pseudoscience" spread by Yan Limeng; ordinary people to Yan Limeng's residence near the banner, protesting the stigmatization of the epidemic caused by discrimination against Asians; in her live broadcast boycott her participation in the live show, resulting in her show interaction with fewer and fewer people She was forced to leave the Internet and return to real life to apply for jobs.
However, justice advocates do not want Yan Limeng to go into hiding and continue to spread false information about the new crown outbreak. Guo Wengui found out Yan Limeng's current address: Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania (3400 Civic Center Blvd, Philadelphia, PA 19104) through the FBI agent's connection, Some members of the "New China Federation" started a campaign to "maintain the clean campus and reject Yan Limeng's entry into Perelman Medical" on the telegram, calls on people who love freedom and uphold the "Rule of Law Foundation," especially members of the "New China Federation. On March 21, Yan Limeng's address near the banner to protest Yan Limeng false new crown theory, reveal Yan Limeng and YouTube anchor "Luther" (Wang Dinggang) affair, the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine campus to protect the clean land.

2023.06.01 03:35 Jesusn2299 Situation with a school chat

I am attending a school course not a college but more to obtain a certificate after completion. We have a student chat on teams and today administration and IT took over one of our classmates accounts and kicked everyone out of the chat then proceeded to quickly add administrators and IT to it before kicking that last student that got her account taken. After this an email was sent out stating that our course is being temporarily suspended due to accusations of academic dishonesty and that they needed to conduct an investigation that included going through the chat we had. How legal is it for them to do this like the whole chat thing ? Can they just take over a private chat and go through it the way they are doing so ?

2023.06.01 03:34 sevwriter Short story I just wrote about depression. "Maple Syrup"

First time posting or getting feedback. Appreciate any of your thoughts. It's kinda absurd and not scientifically sound, but I had a fun afternoon writing it.

By the time the ants found maple syrup on the kitchen counter from a Friday night breakfast-for-dinner, my head was half-squeezed shut. The constellation of symptoms was described medically over the years as Panic Disorder, Depression, Anxiety, Cyclothymia, and Bipolar-Not Otherwise Specified. The mental healthcare system, insofar as there was one in the United States of 2010-2022, never did give me a straight answer.
No matter. The name didn’t concern me. I had years of experience subverting sexual identity labels to thank for that. And the meds provided a charitable blanket over most of the stars in my particular constellation. Chemicals, after all, don’t need to know a diagnosis to work. What did concern me was the feeling of my head squeezing into itself and with it, the world as I knew it. The sensations began to transcend the psychological into the physical. My head ached, but it wasn’t a headache.
By spring my spirit was in an anvil. Sharp, tight, and dwindling. I didn’t need a shrink, I needed an enlarger. Sometimes I’d start to cry. Sometimes I thought I would die. Sometimes I just lied there, desperate for a distraction that didn’t come. In those days my mind could go from zero to deep needless torment in under seven seconds. I envisioned dark red synapses firing across the surface of my brain. Those were the Bad Thoughts, and they were getting darker and redder that inordinately warm April of 2022.
There were other types of thoughts too, lest you think I went certifiable. These ones were shades across a lighter chromatic spectrum, and they propelled me through a day physically and socially unscathed. Drop off the UPS package (light yellow). Walk the dog (sea foam green). Respond to the text (baby blue). Call in to the meeting (nectarine).
The ants weren’t as plentiful as the ones in my San Francisco apartment, which formed yards-long lines along the bottom of my bedroom wall. But they were more determined. Scrappier. They’d crawl out from several directions: my garbage disposal, the windowsill, the dishwasher. It was a multi-directional onslaught that I both saw coming and chose to do nothing about.
An ecosystem fueled by Vermont’s finest Grade A syrup began to thrive in my kitchen. Flies and mosquitoes found their rightful place within it. I felt guilty for letting things get this way, and then guilty for thinking that ‘getting this way’ meant anything beyond my own arbitrary standard of cleanliness. It all sounded vaguely fascist. And anyhow I had a house, a job, a dog, friends. An extant and healthy mother, father, and brother. I went to the number one liberals arts college. On these facts alone I clung strongly and proudly. I’d never actually let myself go.
Yet that appeared to be what was happening. Doing the Bare Minimum was my new MO and ridding these ants was a touch past this threshold. My head could handle the Easter-colored thoughts and the Dark Red thoughts that squeezed. But there was no room for ones of moderate intensity. I could handle the gargantuan and the tedium, just nothing in between.
Besides dying alone, my deepest fear was to end up on a show like Intervention or Hoarders. In May of that year I discovered that it’s our deepest fears we inadvertently move towards. I was blocked by my ex for one too many late night drunken texts. I was chronically unsure of where I stood in my friend group. My parents were close in geography but far in spirit.
Perhaps my only source of stability then was my job. I worked from home in software. My Bare Minimum MO had been soundly applied here too. Luckily this coincided with a post-Pandemic phenomenon known as Quiet Quitting, which even my boss knew about, so I was able to float on semi-intelligent cruise control for the time being.
I can guess what you’re thinking. You worked 15 hours per week, in a house to yourself, ate pancakes for dinner, and were sad?
I wish I understood it too. By June, Pride month, I forewent cooking entirely. I ate one meal per day, delivered from an app. I couldn’t even look at my kitchen. It was situated between my living room and my bedroom, so the only time I spent in it was heads down on my way to or from sleep.
My head was still intact but then so was the ant colony. I’d cleaned the maple syrup and all the other visible food scraps, but the ants’ infrastructure proved too resilient to falter. It fed on the seedy kitchen underbelly. Crumbs in the crevasses, I guessed, but couldn’t be bothered to look.
It’s June 2023 now, and the ants have thoroughly taken over the kitchen and living room. I took the office, bedroom, and 1.5 bathrooms. They take up so much space they should split rent! It’s not like they don’t have the work ethic.
I had a close call this past winter when my landlord came to unstick my door and noticed my insecticidal interior. The overhead light was covered in something “brown and wavy.” I pegged him for an amateur or a semi-blind because my ants are dark red and their movement is hardly fluid.
Instead of reprimanding me, he referred me to his brother in law, a documentarian with a new project examining the interplay of urbanism and geologic decay. I landed a starring role, insofar as one can star in a documentary. This led to another part in an alternative web series about climate change. They filmed my parts from my house. This led me to a sponsorship deal with the country’s leading carbon neutral tire company, whose name I hardly need mention. Now, I work 15 hours per quarter. I never made amends with my ex nor determined my standing in the friend group. Who needs love when you have 23,000 followers at your fingertips? I also didn’t heal my childhood trauma while my parents were alive and close by because my license expired and there was no way to get to the DMV.
My head doesn’t hurt anymore because my new prescription reroutes the norepinephrine from my nucleus accumbens to my basal ganglia. I live peacefully with the ants. They call me the queer Jane Goodall, if you can believe it. Ants are one of the planet’s most durable species. What commenters call disturbing, my followers call inspirational. I consider it a downright privilege.

2023.06.01 03:34 Aggressive_Reward101 new book jason hoaks

Jason Hoaks, a gifted writer who bravely battled brain cancer, has completed his new book “A Progression of the Mind”: a gripping and potent collection of poems published post-mortem by his loved ones. “A Progression of the Mind” poses the questions, “What do you do when you are told you have less than a 7 percent chance of living five years? What struggles do you go through? How do you cope? How do you voice your sadness, fear, rage, and longing for futures lost? Jason wrote poetry. Sometimes dark and cynical, often fatalistic, frequently absurd and comical. These poems are an imprint left on the world by someone who had an enormous amount to say and not enough time to say it.” Published by Newman Springs Publishing, Jason Hoaks’s thought-provoking tale came to be following a life-changing terminal diagnosis of brain cancer. Stoic and courageous, Hoaks began writing poetry as a way to express his inner turmoil without letting it bubble to the surface. His works offer a fascinating insight into the mind of someone boldly facing death. Jason Hoaks passed away on Christmas Day in 2010 and is fondly honored and remembered by his loving parents. By publishing his poetry, they allow their son’s spirit to live on and touch the lives of others. Hoaks’s riveting poems are filled with intelligence, dark humor, wit, and will. “A Progression of the Mind” makes for a powerful and compelling read. Readers who wish to experience this touching work can purchase “A Progression of the Mind” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iBooks Store, Amazon, or Barnes and Noble.

2023.06.01 03:33 wwwmaster1 Where is Paradise Valley? Or how many are there in this metro?

I'm quite confused because I thought PV was the acre-plus properties south of shea and north of camelback (basically - don't care about the details). But then there is the defunct Paradise Valley Mall several miles away, and even farther north there is a high school, golf course, college, and some other stuff by Paradise Valley Park. Why would anyone do this in a city other than to confuse people?? Are there more valleys of paradise that I am missing? I heard today that the Phoenician claims to be in Scottsdale. Do you people not understand how boundaries work?

2023.06.01 03:31 gxxdiegxxdie Suggestions for a Mentor Program that I am Creating for my High School

An alumnus from my high school mentored me throughout my last 2 years of high school. She helped me every step of the college process while I received help from my coaches for the recruiting process. The amount of information, effort, and time that they put into helping me and that I put into everything I did was exhausting yet worth it. Without them, I wouldn't have gotten where I am at today, especially as a first generation student.
I want to create a mentor program for the students in my high school to help them the same way my coaches and mentor helped me. I know that many of the school counselors and other coaches don't help much as they send them to links or don't provide useful information. I actually want to take time to get to know the students and help them through every step of the college oand recruiting process.
I want to know what are some suggestions that you may have in regards of what you wished to know ahead of time, what were some of the most important aspects to you, what you regretted doing/not doing that affected the college process, etc. Any suggestions are appreciated!

2023.06.01 03:30 puffshrooom i messed up my freshman year in college because i didn’t understand anything about college at all.

i messed up my freshman year in college because i didn’t understand anything about college at all.
this is a pretty long post because i need to narrate a good premise so all of you could understand. if anyone is reading this, please take the time to read the entire thing. i really need your advice or just anyone i could talk to about this.
i initially didn’t want to go to college when it was still online class. i’ve been so overwhelmed of all the stress and uncertainties of online class when i was in shs so i thought it would be a good idea (mentally) if i skipped out a year and started college when classes shift back to f2f.
my mom didn’t like the idea. she didn’t like the fact that i would graduate a year later than my peers which is so messed up. i gave in to her decision anyway.
it was a mistake.
i chose a university which was a 6-hour drive away. in 2021, it was so difficult to travel outside your province given the amount of documents and tests you have to go through so my mom found someone from the university to process my admission for me. all we had to do was ship my documents through courier. the person did everything on my behalf. she enrolled all of my subjects and i was officially admitted to a program i (thankfully) like.
ff, i attended my classes and submitted my schoolwork online like a good student. only i didn’t understand what prerequisites are, what drop or inc mean, or just generally anything about college. i just did what my profs told me to do.
two months into the first semester, i felt like everything wasn’t real. like me going to college isn’t real. i don’t even feel like i am talking to real people in class. i also remember feeling like yung mga nakakausap ko sa gclass or sa gmeet or sa class gc are somewhat like the internet friends you meet thru telegram, discord, or stan twt na bigla lang din nawawala after a while. that pretty much sums up how i felt the entire online class.
so, even when the first semester was barely over, i had already stopped doing my schoolwork or attending gmeets. the same way i do when i get sick of interacting with so much online people na nag ddeactivate lang ako ng account or nag lleave sa gc.
naturally, all of my grades that semester were all inc and drops.
two more semesters passed and i am still not doing anything. my mom thinks i’m doing well in school. i lied to her about having a friend who could process my enrolment for me so she didn’t bother contacting the person she asked to process my admission for me the last time. luckily, she doesn’t ask about my grades (she never does since hs) so i didn’t have to lie to her about that. she still thinks i’m doing schoolwork because i’m always on my laptop.
this upcoming school year, my university will fully transition to face-to-face classes which means i ultimately have to face the consequences of what i did since first semester freshman year, too. i’m confused if i should come clean to my mom or suggest that i move to a different university.
i also don’t know how i could possibly fix my entire college experience.
please help.

2023.06.01 03:30 SensitiveAd4077 BAD BUSINESS

If you've found yourself here, then there's a strong possibility that you too, have been shammed by silencer central.
Did they use dishonest sales tactics to sell you a heavily overpriced house brand suppressor, with the promise of having your can in 90 days?
Did they pretty much guarantee a 90 day approval, saying that they're the best in the country? Saying that they've seen approvals in as little as 10 days? Only to find out that was a dealer transfer?
Did they act like your best friend, answering all your questions with "our banish line is the best" or "we are the leading silencer dealer in the nation, we can pull strongs that no one else can". Only to completely desert you after you paid, and never answer another question again? Or give you the same generic answer of "they're approving your submission month as we speak, so it'll be anyday now " for the last few months?
Do you feel completely shafted and need compensation? Do you feel that they need to face some sort of consequences for their misguided, dishonest sales tactics? If you do, please feel free to email me. I am currently in the works with a class action law firm to bring them to justice, but I need as much help as I can get, and as many people on board that are willing to stand up against this big bully of a business. Please email Me and let's get the ball rolling. Thank you for your time.
Contact email: [email protected] Send me your name, date of submission, and any info you can give me about your negative experiences with Silencer central.

2023.06.01 03:30 PositiveWolf8960 Call to action: Podcast ideas!!

Hello all!
I am in the midst of starting a podcast and have soooo much content that I don't know how to pair it down to one topic. I figured this would be the best group to throw out ideas to, since it's probably the most all encompassing of my ideas? Pls help me decide and if you somehow are well versed in this area, and have any other suggestions, pls let me know!
Just to give you some background, thought I would share some detail about me. I am first generation American, older millenial, CPA, recovering workaholic, new mom to 6 month old, wife, new gardener, etc. My husband and I have been married almost 4 years and are new parents to our son. We met in another state and did long distance for 3 years as he was in the military prior to. That's a journey in itself. Anyway, prior to that I was a career girl. Wanted to become partner and all that jazz, and sort of hit rock bottom when I was paired with a boomer Partner. War stories from that experience sent me right out the door. I feel like a suffer a lot of PTSD from that experience. Anyway, I've worked in audit/tax/small business/consulting/CAS/bookkeeping within multiple firms and have since worked for myself. I now take on clients for interim periods of time and make my own schedule/flexibility. I've also taken on some interim controller jobs where I have learned a ton operationally wise and see a lot more value in industry than public. I've 6x my salary over the last 16 years since I graduated college. I commuted to college on a scholarship from a job I worked at since I was 14. I basically ran the bookkeeping/back office of a $10M company when I was in high school/college. I was one of 2 females working there- lots of war stories (and juicy) from there. Becoming a mom has become the greatest joy of my life thus far. But it's also the hardest thing. I've recently discovered that I'm neurodivergent and suffer with ADHD. I have crippling anxiety most of the time, tend to lead towards the negative, but have done a lot of my work on myself to combat that part of me. I hit a depression after moving, dealing with a sick parent, and hitting every professional roadblock possible. It was upon releasing my depression, I discovered I was becoming a mom and my life has drastically changed for the better. He is the light of my world. I've since returned to working part time and am learning the routine/balance of working SAHM mom life.
Anyway, if this just sounds like word vomit to you, be kind but honest. Otherwise, I've listed a few topics/highlights if you could let me know what you think!

2023.06.01 03:30 florriemccarthy Do you guys think it could be viable for a young person to move to Toronto right now?

I’m here for summer, one year of college left in Ireland. I don’t have a whole pile of savings but could if worked through next year. I’ve just been told by the family and staying with and read from the papers that rent and property are ridiculous and I have seen firsthand the crazy cost of living, with food and drinks seeming to be the worst so far. But one cousin pointed out that the grocers(and food) in both Chinatowns can be quite cheap, and another pointed out that even after a 100 dollar yearly membership Costco can prove valuable. After that I think the only thing is rent and gas + electricity, so I’m wondering A) if any of you guys think it could be possible overall to have a nice enough quality of life and B) if so, what part of the city might offer low enough rent to facilitate that?
Maybe this will result in the big surrounding areas like Missisauga. Staying near Corktown so only really familiar with the downtown area, Lesleyville, etc.

2023.06.01 03:29 leahhhhhhhhhhh In an extreme rut

I’m not sure if this is rock bottom but it kind of feels like it. I’m 20F, my mom died pretty horrifically five months ago and I took care of her for a year. I think I have ptsd from caregiving, not that I can afford to go to a therapist right now to get diagnosed anyways. A week after moving away from my hometown and two months after my mom died, my cat that I had for 18 years died suddenly. My dad who was divorced from my mom when she died and abused her while they were married went apeshit on me and my siblings barely even a week after our mom passed because we told him that she wouldn’t be buried next to him because they were divorced and she wouldn’t have wanted that. When I moved away I was binge eating and taking sleep meds during the day because I didn’t like being awake. My car has been broken down for six weeks and is gonna cost $1700 to fix and I can’t work because nobody wants to hire somebody without a car. My extended family is generally nice but I’m not close with them and they look down on me because I didn’t go straight to college after highschool so they think I’m stupid and talk about me behind my back. I genuinely don’t have a single friend and I don’t think I have since I was 18. I feel numb most of the time but have insane panic attacks every couple weeks. I’ve gained about 50 pounds in the last two years and definitely have an eating disorder that I’ve dealt with since i was 16 (back then I genuinely never ate and now I try to not eat but just end up binging). I just feel so lost and broken. I’m sorry this whole post is just me complaining about my life lol but I genuinely need advice. When things are this bad, HOW do you even begin to get better? I have horrendous adhd and find that every time I get inspired to make a change in my life, I lose interest and give up after like two weeks. Do things just take time? I have so many things that I don’t like about how my life is that I just get overwhelmed even thinking about trying to fix things. I just know that if I continue down this path I’m gonna live such a sad and lonely fucking life and that’s terrifying to me.

2023.06.01 03:29 Appropriate_Yak2562 Advice on picking my future legacy husband

Hello A2C,
I’m a prospective parent and my father has presented me with 3 different suitors to have an arranged marriage with. I’m wondering which suitor you’d pick to maximize my chance of my child to get into a T20!
For some reference, I’m a female at Cornell studying at Dyson and I’ll be heading to Goldman Sachs as an IB analyst after graduation. My dad has donated $20 million to Cornell and is on the board of trustees! Anyway, here are the suitors:
Suitor 1: Demographics: Asian male majoring in CS at MIT Stats: dad made a $100 million donation to MIT. Son has started 3 unicorns by himself and is planning to donate even more to MIT.
Pros: - our babies are gonna be ultra geniuses with his genes 😍😍😍😍😍 - I won’t need to work a single day in my life after marrying him Cons: - MIT doesn’t offer legacy admissions so not sure if that 100mil+ donation will help - If my children are going to MIT, I’d have to trap them in a cage where they’re forced to do IMO problems until they’re 18 and that sorta takes the fun out of raising children
Suitor 2: Demographics: Caucasian male at Wharton. Stats: double legacy - mom is on the board of trustees and dad made a $10 million donation to Penn. All the son does is party all day, but he’s also going to Goldman after graduation.
Pros: - Wharton was my dream school and I’ve want to send my children to Penn! - Our children would be auto-admits if we have children fast enough and the parents are still involved Cons - Kinda worried that the son won’t be able to succeed his mom on the board. Parents are making a push but it’s getting harder and harder to get elected 🙄 - Son is sort of a brick so I’m worried about my children’s intelligence as well
Suitor 3: Demographics: Indian male at Harvard majoring in economics and applied math. Doing his PhD at Stanford after graduating and wants to be a professor Stats: Dad donated $50 million to Harvard. Mom is a Stanford alumni and she donated another $50 million to Stanford. Son is super well connected with professors there but that’s about it. Pros: - like the first suitor, ultra genius babies 😍😍😍 - I get to choose two great schools - Harvard and Stanford! Cons: - This suitor won’t be making as much as the other two so I’d have to work my butt off 😐 - He’s also not as interested in college names like the other 2, which is really frustrating cuz he’s going to two of the best schools in the country!
So those are basically the suitors. Let me know which one you think are best!!!

2023.06.01 03:29 Bad_wolf_119 Homebrew Race: Halibor

Homebrew Race: Halibor
This is another Homebrew race of mine for a campaign I am about to start with a group.
Name: Halibor
The Halibor are a desert tribe from Atrexia, settlements exist, although not well established. They are fiercely loyal people who thrive in harsh environments. Their people are known for being the most fierce combatants out of most known races, as they tend to learn combat from young ages.
Ability Score Increases: Your dexterity score increases by 2 and your constitution score by 1.
Age: Halibor share a similar lifespan to humans.
Alignment: Halibor are fiercely loyal, and while that usually extends to their own people, their values and stubbornness are often a great strength, leaning them towards a tendency of good.
Size: Between five to over 6 feet, they are medium creatures.
Languages: Can speak common and Assyr.
Breath of the Wild: Choose 2 proficiencies out of the following: Survival, Acrobatics, animal handling, athletics, stealth
Eye of the Eagle: The Halibor cherish their connection to birds of prey, adopting and bonding with eagle companions in their passage to adulthood. At 3rd level, obtain an eagle companion you control. The bird has only 10hp, and is not adept at fighting, however, you may enter a form of meditation and acquire the vision of the eagle to see what it sees.

2023.06.01 03:28 Moosemunch30 My first Kimber; officer size mag question.

My first Kimber; officer size mag question.
Does any one have a good source for decent extended officer sized (3" 1911) magazines that fit to the frame?
And what are the concerns when running a full sized government magazine in an officers length 1911? - other than potential improper chambering due to magazine spring tension; i''ve heard someone explain that the magazine gets over seated due to the fact that there's no flush base pad for the mag to sit in flush contact with the bottom of the that a real issue?

2023.06.01 03:28 greyishcorn Summer is a nightmare

Even as a student I hated summer. It's just boring and obnoxiously hot. I'm crazy sensitive to weather (like I need a jacket when it's 65F/18C, but get dizzy when it's 70F/21C) and I hate wearing revealing clothing. The feeling of skin sticking together from sweat is hellish. The SMELL of sweat too.
So on top of the sensory overload, there's even more of an expectation to be outside and around people than usual. I love the friends I've got, but they all know I'm a homebody, which means they do outdoorsy stuff with their fun friends, which makes me unnecessarily jealous. Then I delete instagram for the 50th time and everything is fine for a bit. THEN my ADHD and autistic fixations swoop in.
One of my special interests are the seasons and the cultural context around them. I like to live my life seasonally (eating certain foods, activities, color-scheming my flat/wardrobe), and this is incredibly grounding. But summer is SO BORING. There's no good holidays for me to celebrate or base any of my clothes/food around. I'm not a huge fan of the colors typically associated with summer in my culture either. There's what?? Flowers?? Okay well spring's got summer beat on that. And of course if I try to enjoy fall/winter things in the wrong season my autism alarm will go off and give me and anxiety attack. Maybe I'll just go all out on Labor Day this year. Catch me making lemonade all pissed off.
Thank you for reading my whining. Cold months ftw.
