hopelessly in love with a guy i can’t have :/
2023.03.30 01:21 Witty-Afternoon1262 hopelessly in love with a guy i can’t have :/
look, i’ve always been kind of a skeptic when it comes to the whole love thing. rarely had feelings for people, never been in love before, had relationships but they were either borderline abusive, or healthy, but just never quite clicked.
and then, when i was sixteen years old, i found him (we’ll call him chase, for the sake of simplicity). and he changed everything.
chase wasn’t even necessarily my type to begin with, but there was just something about him that called my name, almost from the get-go. maybe it’s the way he speaks, or the way his eyes shine, or how he hides behind his sweater paws when he gets flustered, those callow dimples that carve into his cheeks when he smiles, the way he sees beauty in every living soul, even if he can’t stand them, because he is just that fucking kind. i can’t entirely explain it. there are other sweet, incredible people in my life, but there’s just something about him. something intangible, an involuntary, inexplicable pull to him, him exclusively, something that keeps me hooked, no matter how hard i try to forget him. and i do. believe me, i do.
i don’t know. i guess he just makes me happy. the mere thought of him makes me smile. it scares me.
chase is so different from me, but these contrasts make us all the more compatible, which is a special kind of torture in and of itself. take our mbti types for instance- very different, but they click perfectly. he’s an extrovert, i’m an introvert, he’s a gym rat, i’m a skinny bitch who couldn’t do cardio if you paid her, he’s living his dream, i’m an exhausted waitress who gets all her serotonin from a dwindling stiiizy pod.
we’re similar as well, in a lot of ways i wouldn’t ordinarily think of. we’ve both been inches away from ending our lives at various points in time, we’re both stingy, terrified of spending the money we have because we’re scared it’s all going to go away someday, we struggle with the same disordered eating habits, we’re both irreparable insomniacs, we both love to dance, we both love music, above nearly all else in life.
when i first realized that he was something different- something special- i ran away from it. i didn’t confront it, i said fuck no, this is not happening. i told myself i was being stupid, that i was crazy, that i was just confused and that this was nothing more than a crush. a fleeting, silly little crush, a brief infatuation that would go away as quickly as it started… right?
it’s only now, at twenty-one years old, that i realized… it wasn’t a crush. i was in love. i loved that man, with all my heart, and- as much as it pains me to say it- i think i still do.
this is all really embarrassing to admit, because i do not stand a chance in hell with this man. i know i don’t.
im not his type, he’s out of my league, he lives halfway across the globe, we’ve barely spoken, i haven’t seen the guy in almost a year, and- from what i’ve heard- i’m pretty sure he’s with someone else now. needless to say, im not delusional- he isn’t an option, and i know that in my mind- it’s just that my heart isn’t quite on the same page.
we never dated- shit, we’ve never even so much as hugged. i’m very aware i don’t have a shot with him, and i’d never go as far as to tell chase how i feel, because i know it’d end in disaster, not to mention, the heartbreak of my life.
so i guess the question is, how do i move on? how do i give other people a fair shot and live my life when i know- in my soul- that it will never be the same with anyone else?
i feel guilty, dating other people, and knowing that my heart is in another place. it’s not fair. it’s not right.
but it’s also been five years, and i honestly don’t know what to do at this point.
im so sorry :’( this was so long-winded and absurd lmao. if anyone happens to stumble upon this, and has advice, i will gratefully accept it. thank u <3 and tysm for making it this far
tld/ i’ve been in love with the same dork for five years, pls fix me

2023.03.30 01:20 Deviched Migrating from LP: Your Opinions about 1P's Chrome Extensions
Hello, me and 1 other partner are looking to migrate password managers and I'm convinced it will be 1Password. I took a look at the Chrome app/extension and half of the reviews are extraordinarily negative to the functionality of the extension. I'm confused over the near 50/50 conflict and argument in the very review page of 1Pass.
I'm a huge user of LP's extension (Autofill, automatic password generation, saving new passwords, etc) and I'm looking for the same experience.
If you could share me your experience with the Chrome extension, I would be very appreciative.

2023.03.30 01:20 CardinalCoder64 Multiple Texture Pages + Shaders
I've found myself in a rather sticky situation... hopefully I can explain it in a way that makes sense.
So I want to use texture samplers with shaders to create a sprite overlay, possibly with a shader effect attached. For example, I have a water texture that I want to tile across another sprite and have a liquid effect applied to the water texture only (NOT the base sprite). I looked up some tutorials on how to do that, and I came across this
Starting at 14:53 of the video, Dragonite imports a cloud texture and sets it to have it's own separate texture page. Then at 16:10, he draws the cloud texture over the tree, creating a nice little overlay. This is exactly what I was looking for.
But here's my issue: I want to have many overlays/masks. Checking the "separate texture page" box for each sprite I import doesn't sound optimal and would be inconvenient. So I want to create just one separate texture page that contains all my mask sprites. I also noticed that in the video, Dragonite uses "v_vTexcoord" for both the tree and the clouds. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I assume this works for him because the tree and clouds share the same UVs on different texture pages. In my case, I would need to get the coordinates of both the base sprite and the mask sprite across different texture pages and pass it through the shader somehow. I'm aware of "sprite_get_texture" and "sprite_get_uvs", but I'm unsure how to use them to accomplish this task.
Then I found this
(skip to 17:48 for code).
This helps a little, however I don't want the mask sprite to be scaled to the base sprite, I want it to be tiled.
This is all so confusing to me and I tried to implement it myself but I got lost pretty quickly.
My goal: I want to take a mask sprite from a different texture page and tile it across another sprite using a shader, possibly adding shader effects to the mask sprite (like taking a water texture and applying a "liquid" effect to it). I hope to accomplish this while getting the correct texture coordinates for each sprite (like using "sprite_get_texture" and "sprite_get_uvs").
I hope all this makes sense. I know I might be asking a lot here, but what would be the best way to do this?

2023.03.30 01:19 Legionarivs_Romanvs Giuseppe Solaro, "we are the real rebels!"
| || | submitted by Legionarivs_Romanvs to FascismReclaimed [link] [comments]
Giuseppe Solaro, a life for socialism and Italy
Giuseppe Solaro, Italian born in 1914, was a left-wing socialist who grew up under the fascist regime and graduated in economics. In 1937 he volunteered with the Italian Expeditionary Force to fight in the Spanish Civil War. Upon Italy's entry into the war in WW2 (1940) he was drafted and even during the war he continued to write newspaper articles on topics such as economics, politics and geopolitics. With the Italian surrender of 8 September 1943 and the outbreak of the civil war, he joined the Italian Social Republic (RSI) because he saw in fascism the only right and realistic way to create a socialist society.
During the Fascist-Republican period Giuseppe was put in charge of the Fascist Republican Party in Turin, a very important political role. He was among the greatest supporters of the socialization economic project implemented in the RSI. Loyal to his socialist ideal, during a strike by FIAT workers he took their side forcing the company to increase their wages (in wartime!).
WW2 in Italy from 1943 became a civil war between fascists in the north and anti-fascists in the south. The anti-fascist partisans were people who, supported by the Allies, led a guerrilla warfare in the territories controlled by the RSI. Ignoring the laws of war they didn't wear any uniform and after their attacks they often hid among the civilian population in the inhabited centers of cities and villages, Germans and fascists reacted to this by organizing reprisals and sometimes causing civilian victims in their actions. Aware of this, Giuseppe as a political leader often strongly opposed the reprisals wanted by the military authorities as a response to partisan attacks, sometimes successfully managing to prevent them.
In the last days of the war in April 1945, with the final Allied advance, the RSI was in collapse. On 23 April he was promoted to regional inspector of the Black Brigades (an anti-guerrilla military corp). On the 25th the Allied forces are at the gates of the city, the Germans and some republican units prepare to withdraw; today April 25 is celebrated in Italy as "liberation day from fascism". On April 26, Giuseppe went to a saving bank ("Cassa di Risparmio") in Turin to withdraw the money necessary to pay all the back wages of his still unpaid soldiers, and at the refusal of the bank manager he decided to break down the bank gate with an armored vehicle and withdraw them anyway. On the 27th he dismantled the Black Brigades and handed over to the soldiers the money from the back wages taken the day before; the same day Mussolini is captured by the partisans in Lombardy. Many Turin fascists refused to join the column of retreating German-Italian forces and organized resistance to the bitter end in the city. Giuseppe, despite his brother Ferdinando begging him to leave the city, decided to stay in Turin.
On the 28th the city fell completely into the hands of the Allies, Giuseppe was arrested; it was the same day that Mussolini was shot. On the 29th after a farce and summary trial he was sentenced to death. He was hanged, but the branch of the tree he was hanging from snapped, and while he was semi-conscious and nearly dead, he was picked up and hanged again. That day, before the sentence was carried out he wrote a letter to his wife:
"Dear Tina, before dying I express all my love and devotion to you. I have been honest all my life and honestly I die for an idea. May it help Italy on the road to Redemption. Remember me and love me, as I have always loved Italy. Dear Tina, long live free Italy, viva il Duce!"
"We are the real rebels"
On October 12, 1944, a newspaper published an article of his for which he is still famous today among Italian neofascists. To understand it you need to know that at the time the Germans and fascists spoke of the partisans as "rebels", and that In the article by "plutocrats" he refers to the Anglo-Americans who armed and supported them. I will quote only the most famous part:
"We are the real rebels! It is easy for others to be called rebels, when the successes of the Allies encourage them, in the phase in which the war initiative is on their side. It is pleasant to be called a rebel when you are surrounded by the kindness of so many cowardly people who intend to bet on 'the winning horse'; when you have encouragement and help from plutocrats who bet on the deal deemed safer\1]) [...]".
"NO, these opportunists of contingent events are not rebels [...]. We are the real rebels. Rebels against an old world of egoists, of privileged, of conservatives, of oppressive capitalists, of failed systems, of outdated ideologies, deceitful doctrines of the false and the liars. In short, rebels against the world of injustice".
"Rebels in the name of a holy cause, of a just and orderly society, of respect for work, of national dignity, of love for the country, for the family nucleus, for the honorable and noble things undertaken in life. Rebels of faith. Rebels who do not measure the obstacles, which do not dwell on the prospects. It is faith that instills in our hearts the certainty of victory, lit like a burning torch, even in the darkness of misfortune".

2023.03.30 01:18 Psychological-War287 Finally realized part of why I love this show so much!
Hi, would you please lend me your ears for the following?👂🏻😅 I was watching the S2 premiere Q&A with the show-runners and cast, when executive producer Drew Comins said the following:
“I remember one of the most profound things that Jonathan, Ashley and Bart said to me was that, as Jonathan suggested, the Yellowjackets, as much as they've tried to bury their trauma, each of them in their own individual way is calling back that feeling, and this notion that
you're never more alive than when you're right on the edge of death,
something that has sort of been threaded through the show in a lot of really interesting ways. And that fear, especially in a camaraderie situation is sort of like connective tissue that we couldn't possibly create otherwise.”
Hearing him say that, I thought the teenagers feeling truly alive out there is the woods is why I love watching this show so much. The most compelling, emotional moments come when the kids in the wilderness (or even adult Shauna jumping off a bridge with Adam) are shown to feel truly free. As CRAZY as it is to bang your hubby in your murdered bfs place, the way Shauna is connecting to herself and telling her husband like that is admirable. Isn’t a truly honest life what we all seek? As messed up as they all are, I think this show explores that freedom - how regular people (the older Yellowjackets), who in this case have experienced that primal fear, can try to discover, then implement, what really matters to them in the real world. I loved Drew’s answer so much because I don’t think I’d ever understood this part of why I have been so obsessed with this show!
Can you guys verbalize why you’re so into YJ? Please share it with me?☺️ Why do you spend your hours perusing this sub or watching YouTube videos on 0.5x speed (just me?) Did you know that was even a thing you could do before the Yellowjackets intro credits? Be honest 😂.
Thanks for everything you all do on here to indulge my obsession. I love Drag Race too, but holy smokes, it’s not the nicest over in that sub! I came straight back here so fast 🙈. I’m so in to how everyone here is so psyched and nice and helpful. Pat yourself on the back from me 😉. Have a sweet day!
FYI, the question asked is transcribed below.
[Interviewer question: “For Jonathan and Drew: I'd love for you to reflect a little bit on something that Ashley has spoken of which is the themes of trauma and PTSD in the show. Now, she said something recently which I love, which was these things poison how you see the world in terms of paranoia and not being able to trust other people. I think that's so powerful, so for each of you, how do you see these themes as driving the show? Is it the narrative engine and how do you not make it the only engine?”] Season 2 Premiere Q&A YouTube vid link

2023.03.30 01:18 Iwoktheline [M4R] 37, may as well crosspost from the sister subreddit, right?
Yup, reposting it from cf4cf.
Again taking RueMint's form for myself and spilling it all out there.
I'll get the selfie out of the way first. https://imgur.com/a/s1N2A7Y
It's a wee bit outdated because I just shaved my head and it's at the "peach fuzz" stage right now.
Basics - Age is already up above, 5'8 (although looking at the doorway height signs stores put in, they say 6'0, so I like to steal Ron White's joke and say "anywhere between 5'8 and 6'2 depending on what store I walk out of) 215lbs. I have a job, a car, a home I bought, I try to keep tidy, and I make sure the bills are paid, although they slip my mind because I am a space cadet, and I make them get back to current. I am very
reticent and much more of a listener, although I have moments where the dam breaks and I am a chatterbox. I guess I would say dreamer, and I want to and am slowly working towards my dreams.
Physical looks - Now, this may be the deal breaker due to my self-esteemed being in pieces and if so, it happens. No tattoos, eventually I want to get one when I feel comfortable as a memorial piece to my dog. I have minimal body hair (definitely the opposite of Austin Powers, that's for sure). Body type is, to be real, dad bod, am getting back into the gym to lift heavy things and put them back down. I do not feel right if I do not have a daily shower, unless I know I am getting filthy, then when it is done I am sitting under a fires of Mordor hot shower until I am clean.
Imaginings - I imagine being with someone who has that open line of communication, be it a silly thought or something that invites discussion. As an old friend once said, "what you ignore is priceless to me." A relationship is work, and it has to be maintained and upkept daily, else the wheels fall off. I believe that while we help our partners, even if we have to be the bad person to be kind at times, and they have an important role in our lives, ultimately we cannot set ourselves on fire to keep the other person warm.
My defense mechanism is my reticence, be patient and let me sort my thoughts when I get upset as they become a whirlwind and I need a minute to settle the storm.
There are plenty of times I am upstairs in my head and "wandering the halls", and those times it's usually elevator Muzak or the Mii theme going on. As was said in the game Bastion, "Not always something to say."
Still reading? Awesome.
Kids - None. Now, I refuse to become the draconian Childfree person that the subreddit became. I can handle being around kids, the billion dollar answer is I don't want any of my own, I know nothing about parenting and I don't want to take the crash course.
Religion - Agnostic. I believe there's things out there that we can't explain, as long as nobody is trying to force their religion down my throat, I'm okay.
Politics? Pro-choice, pro-science, support the LGBTQ community, I hate Trump, and am vaccinated.
Drink? Smoke? Drugs? Don't smoke, the worst I've been in forever was a Malort with friends, and yes, the aftertaste is absolutely horrid. I don't like the smell of weed, I don't partake in it, I don't mind if someone does, just not around me cause again, I think it stinks.
Have you ever been in therapy? Yes. I have depression and anxiety and while I fell off the wagon in terms of therapy due to financial stuff, I am getting back on.
Do you want to get married someday? Honestly, I don't know, but I am keeping it as an option. I don't care to blow an easy 5 figures to get married, I am perfect happy with a small celebration among close friends and found family, and making memories.
Can anything be funny? No. Some people try to be edgier than Bismuth and while there are dark humor jokes that can make me spit my drink, I believe 1) time and place. 2) the company 3) subject. All three are equally important when it comes to humor. I am so so SO much more of a dad joke and pun guy, or even some adult humor.
City? Country? Somewhere in the middle please. I would like to not be near major metropolitan areas, nor do I want to be out in the sticks. I've done both, and am happy with where I can hide away from the world, and if need be not have to drive 40 minutes just to get something from the store.
Is jealousy a healthy emotion? It is normal, yes. Communication is King, Queen, and Their Eminence when it comes to handling this, however, as this is also something that comes up in a relationship.
Are you looking for someone local? Kind of, I am financially bound to my house for right now, if not then we can cross that bridge if/when we come to it.
Intimacy and sex? I can’t be in a relationship where sex isn’t an important part. I have an above average sex drive, but it does not consume me. Sex, like the relationship, is give and take. Sometimes I like to take control, others I let my partner take the wheel.
Music? I am a bit eclectic (and a basic bitch) and dabble in various genre outside of hip hop (unless you count Lotus Juice?) Or heavy metal, I like to understand what I'm listening to. If anyone knows of any good didgeridoo music, let me know.
Movies? I had been on a Marvel kick, and try to be open minded on various genre. I can live just fine without horror, although I will indulge in Chainsawman, and am happy to keep it away from a partner who isn't interested. Love a good animation, Pixar has wowed me with what I have seen of their works, and I like to watch some good sci-fi.
Shows? I watched a ton of Doctor Who, and most media I consume anymore has been games, outside of reading Fandom to catch up on things I missed, and I will sit with friends to watch anime like Buddy Daddies, Chainsawman (as above), or whatever catches our collective eye.
Games? Here is the big one for me. I’ve grown up on the NES, and consider the SNES to be the golden era of gaming. Of course, there are some crappy stories (I love a good story that will hook me, like Earthbound for its whimsical nature yet dark undertones) such as Lufia 2, but it’s what I consider as media “Fast food”. What I mean by that is that is empty turn off your brain fun, yet hits the itch you can’t quite scratch. I am still a huge fan of the 2D Legend of Zelda series (I love A Link To the Past), and if the trailer is decent enough, I’m willing to give it a chance.
Art? I love digital art. There is a lot of dedication and passion that artists put into their work and I respect the eye and talent that they put into it. Pixel art can be absolutely wonderful and the artists put in a painstaking amount of work to make everything pop. Game Design is something I've wanted to do ever since I was a little kid, and Super Mario Bros blew my mind.
I used to read, read, read as a little kid. That dream of a library sounds absolutely wonderful, and so comfortable at the end of the day. I think high fantasy and RPGs have helped solidify that is what I want to do at the end of the day. Anything with dragons will pique my interest, and if there is a good story, I will probably devour it.
What are some of your non-sexual turn ons?
A good long hug, where someone holds onto me like I'm about to disappear, as well as hugs from behind. Top of head or forehead kisses. Actively listening, or inviting further discussion on a topic, even if it's something that isn't easily understood. Compassion is a huge one for me, and when I'm falling apart showing patience for me while I slowly put myself together. Understanding that sometimes I need my own space and/or I'm going to stubbornly push on to work through something, because I know if I don't keep pushing forward I'm going to stagnate and I don't want that.
Do you want your partner to have the same hobbies and interests?
Absolutely, doesn't have to be everything I'm into, as having exactly everything match up is a cashew's chance at a squirrel convention. As much as I love a good long cuddle, I don't have to have someone attached to my hip, nor do I want that. If there is something one or the other isn't interested in, then it's okay to not be interested, just don't shit all over it.
I would love to see someone everyday, wake up with them or shortly before and get breakfast prepped or we do it together, or even if there's something that needs to be done by oneself, that's okay too!
If you want to talk more, drop me a DM, and to prove you are not a bot (beep boop) list in the title what game I consider crappy, yet hits an itch you can't quite scratch.

2023.03.30 01:17 Mizu_Soup_ I found out my brother is bullying my ex who used to be his best friend. What do I do?
My brother and I both still live at home and were really close. He's like my best friend. But his recent actions have gotten increasingly worse with racist jokes and rude comments towards LGBTQ+ community and women.
My ex and my brother were best friends until they finally wouldn't take any more of my brother's comments and blocked him. They left a message for him, telling him why and how what he had said had bothered them. Then my brother started bullying them.
I don't know what all has been said in the midst of this bullying but my ex and I still talk occasionally so I found out some from them. It's really bad.
What do I do? My ex has asked me not to interfere as this is between them and my brother and I'll respect that, but what should I do as far as being friends with my brother? We're close like best friends and I've ignored a lot of his stuff for that reason but he's crossed a line here that's hard to ignore. If I cut him off, stop talking to him, gaming with him, doing anything with him, while I still live at home, it's gonna cause family drama. But also I don't want this guy anywhere near my friends anymore.
I wanna make sure he knows I'm not okay with how he treats people. Any advice?

2023.03.30 01:17 Ell-Jay-Bee Help with movie name
CANNOT for the life of me remember anything about this movie except that I think it starts off with a group of tiny kids doing ouija and the devil is summoned and tells a little girl to wait for him super creepily and it flashes forward to her being his confidant or something… then near the end?!? Maybe… she realises he’s a piece of crap and jumps from a building to kill his baby inside her…
Yeah I know, super not helpful… my bad! We were having convos about devil movies and I bought it up and can’t remember anything and it’s killing me now lol I honestly don’t even remember if it was the devil anymore… could definitely have just been a different mythical being or something…

2023.03.30 01:16 TransportationOk4133 Is there some secret bike shop code?
I just tried (and failed) to get my bike repaired at a shop in Springfield. It was the strangest experience of being talked out of what I said I wanted and ultimately turned away. The main issue was that the needed repairs are worth more than the bike (my seat was recently stolen), but I'm someone who invests in my belongings and I don't have a problem with that. When I said I wanted to talk about buying a bike instead the guy nearly laughed at me and said they all cost over a thousand dollars... I have money to spend but shouldn't that be my call anyway?
Is there a bike shop that will help me even if I don't look like Lance Armstrong? (I'm a dumpy middle aged Mom with apparently cheap taste in bikes but I have more money than I did twelve years ago and I'd like to go talk to the bike people who aren't too good to help me spend it).
I'll go anywhere at this point that's guaranteed not to Pretty Woman me.

2023.03.30 01:16 NotAGunner33 Cycle Recap From a Reapplicant - $$$$ at Northwestern!
PLEASE READ MY MID-CYCLE RECAP POST FOR MORE INFO ABOUT MY R&R! R&Ring can be a great option for many! https://www.reddit.com/lawschooladmissions/comments/zxez6q/midcycle_recap_from_a_reapplicant_dont_be_afraid/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=web2x&context=3 Yale - Pending:
I am going to see what happens with this one but even if I somehow got in I don't think I would go because my goals aren't crazy enough to take on that kind of debt. Stanford - Pending:
Same as Yale. Chicago - Waitlist:
This one hurt a bit because I interviewed, and I would like to practice in the Midwest so this was one of the few schools I really wanted badly. I wouldn't have gotten much aid if I got in probably so not a huge deal at the end of the day. Harvard - Rejected:
I expected this and never had my sights set on HYS so I didn't mind this outcome. Columbia - Waitlist:
Not a fan of NYC so this one didn't hurt much. There were only a handful of schools I was seriously interested in but I went on a bad run of WL and R's so eventually I was feeling a little down about how my cycle was going. Penn - Waitlist:
Again, not one of the schools I was seriously interested in but I did think I was going to get an A here based on stupid date change stuff. Just goes to show you can never trust that like you think you can except for a select few schools. NYU - Hold:
I withdrew so I won't ever know what happened. This one was a little concerning because people with my stats bat like 90% at NYU, but I didn't care much about NYU itself. UVA - Waitlist:
I wasn't that interested in UVA and they must have been able to tell. Credit to them. Berkeley - Waitlist:
This was the only T-14 I considered not applying to so this was ok with me. Michigan - Rejected:
I don't even know where to begin with this one and you can probably check my post history at the time this happened but this result was absolutely devastating. Michigan has always been my dream school by a mile, I am in-state, wrote both optionals, visited twice, and was waitlisted last year with a way worse LSAT, no work experience, and a terrible PS. This result was so shocking and it truly felt like they rejected me as a human being because there are some SERIOUS personal reasons why going to Michigan made so much sense for me. Maybe one day I will get over it but right now I have some animosity about that whole situation. No one is owed anything but to be rejected............ Duke - Waitlist:
Not a school I was super interested in. Cornell - Accepted ($$+):
This was my first acceptance and I really grew to like Cornell. I think I would have loved Ithaca but they just didn't give me enough money and I was not a CEHS finalist. NORTHWESTERN - ATTENDING ($$$$):
This offer nearly gave me a heart attack. NU was one of the few schools I was very interested in but I did not think I could possibly get a full-tuition scholarship there based on the data I was looking at. I also told myself and my family I would only go to NU over ND if I got a full ride. Because of this, I had essentially committed to Notre Dame. However, when this offer came through it didn't take long for me to realize this was where I needed to be and wanted to be. I am beyond excited to be in Chicago this Fall! Georgetown - Accepted ($$+):
Georgetown was not a school I was very interested in until I was invited to apply for the Blume Scholarship. However, it does not appear I was granted an interview and I withdrew because it could not top the NU full-ride for me personally. WashU - Accepted ($$$+):
WashU is a really neat school and I could have seen myself going there if things shook out the right way. However, my GPA was just below the cutoff for a full ride and I got some offers from other schools I liked more. Alabama - Accepted ($$$+):
I only applied here because they waived my CAS fee. Notre Dame - Accepted ($$$$):
I was very interested in Notre Dame because I do not live far from it and I want to practice in the Midwest. I got accepted with a full ride very early and really grew to love the school. I have a recent post about my experience at ASD and I was very excited to be heading to ND. NU's offer at the 11th hour was actually really hard for me because I was so sure I was going to ND and I felt great about the school. I realized I would always wonder what it would have been like to go to NU if I was at ND and I don't think I will have quite that same feeling at NU. I also realized if NU had just offered me the scholarship earlier it would be an easy choice and it was just my emotions that were giving me pause. Arizona State - Waitlist:
This was my first result of the cycle and it must be YP. Honestly, smart on their part because I wasn't actually interested but they paid for my CAS fee so I figured why not.
For a while, I felt like I had underperformed in this cycle. I wasn't that sad about it because I still had at least one offer I was happy to accept. I think NU's offer alone actually turned my cycle into an overperformance because of how amazing it is. I am so thankful for how everything turned out and I am happy to answer questions about R&Ring or anything else!

2023.03.30 01:14 Destiny_is_Destiny 31[M4F] Colorado/anywhere- Seeking an electric connection to transition into a long term relationship.
Howdy. Thank you for opening this up and checking this out. Here is my face
and hear is my voice
. I love puns so watch out for that.
I feel like just listing who I am while incredibly helpful, isn't very interesting.
Lets be very quick and get into something a bit more interesting.
My main games for multiplayer are League, and Elden Ring. I'm a massive fan of the souls series in general.
I have an extensive background in playing games, so that is something we can talk about.
I have lived abroad and it had a massive impact on my life. I love to cook, read, workout 3x a week at the gym and love animals. I have one dog at the moment and I'm looking to have many more throughout my life.
I love nature, history, mythology, tech and art.
Ideal super romantic date idea: I know of a place near an Atlantic beach in the south east US. It has plenty of seafood, but it has Italian and other cuisines. 6pm we go grab dinner. 7:30-8pm we go play some mini golf. Flirt have fun under the moonlight and a nice coastal breeze. 9 or so we go grab some ice cream or a dessert and drive down to the beach. Either staying in the vehicle, or heading down to the beach blanket in hand at hopefully a low tide. Under the moon and some stars, able to chat, flirt or just enjoy the moment until we decide to drop you off back home.
How great is that? Well it depends on our chemistry and our luck.
I'm fully aware that our life since we are born has a clock ticking down. I really want to try my best to enjoy my life. To make it vibrant, and enjoy the bright colors, and appreciate what I have in the darker colors. and I really would love to find someone who just clicks with me like a puzzle piece to share and enhance these moments. Someone who I can try my best for, and who refreshes me so I don't burnout. Someone I can encourage the same way.
Most importantly while we won't start at this place, it a destination we can walk to on a journey together.
That was a pretty nice read right? Here is where 99.9% of those of you lovely ladies who are still here stop reading.
While beauty is in the eye of the beholder (behind that pesky anti-magic field) I'm generally attracted to petite or fit body types. Being fit takes dedication, and dedication is sexy. I'm also looking for someone who enjoys gaming and is on the nerdier side of things. So if you enjoy playing league or gaming together, anime or cosplay(including couple's cosplay) then please reach out.
I also do want to have children with you, when we are financially secure.
That is the tip of the iceberg. Thank you for your time, and if your willing to take the plunge into these depths, I can't wait to see you down here. .
Have a great day!

2023.03.30 01:14 gitabyte Is 2 months too soon to DTR? What to do if they're not ready yet?
I've been talking to this guy for the past two months. On our second date, we deleted our dating apps and were pretty much exclusive to each other since then. I sleep over at his place 4x a week; he has a towel and toothbrush just for me; we've gone on a day trip together; and he cooks a lot for me.
I've been feeling extremely anxious these days, worried by the lack of definition in our relationship and if he sees a near future with me. I'm planning on asking if he'd want to be official with me soon, so before then, I've been hinting to him at the idea of becoming his official girlfriend. Last night, he asked me, "Do you think I've been purposefully ignoring your hints?" I played dumb, acting confused, but when I went home, and mulled over it, I realized that he had been noticing my hints and had been ignoring them all this time.
Now this makes me believe that he'll say, "It's only been two months. I'm not ready yet," in response to DTRing, and I don't know what to do. I don't think I can handle the anxiety of waiting until he's ready, but I also don't want to leave someone I've become so attached to.
This is my first "relationship," and I don't know how to navigate this. What should I do?

2023.03.30 01:14 At_the_Library9702 It's my turn!!! I can't believe it!
All told, I borrowed $65k for my law school education (in subsidized & unsubsidized Stafford loans) and $90k for my son's undergrad (in Parent PLUS loans), so a total of $155k. As of today, I have already paid back about $90k to my law school loans and $15k to my son's loans, so I've paid about $105k on these loans over the past 25 years. I had $157,298 forgiven yesterday! Crazy!
If you're interested in detail, here's my timeline:
January 1998 - graduated from law school & started paying my loans when I began practicing in a for-profit capacity 6 months later.
2004 - consolidated all of my various loans into a single subsidized & single unsubsidized loan, both serviced by AES. Paid continuously except for two years of economic hardship deferment during the recession. (Thank goodness I didn't accidentally end up in a truly private loan at this point!)
July 2011 - moved & changed careers - I was good at the research & advocacy parts of law practice, but I mostly wanted to help people so I wasn't great at getting paid! So after more than 13 years of law practice, I started working at an entry level nonprofit job in April 2012. Took a one year forbearance to get re-established with an income, which expired in October 2012. Been paying continuously ever since, including during the pandemic until November 2022, since my law school loans weren't subject to the interest & payment pauses.
2015 through 2018 - Took PLUS loans to get my oldest son through undergrad. Wow were those interest rates a shocker!
10/28/22 - Filed my consolidation & PSLF application forms (including two employment verification forms covering April 2012 to October 2022) right before the deadline, after having watched TWO webinars and asking question in the PSLF subreddit. I just didn't believe I would qualify, and I definitely didn't think my parent loans would qualify! But at the last minute I took a chance & filed by fax and also by mail, the later of which which was logged by Mohela on 11/11/22 and later marked as a duplicate.
12/20/22 - Consolidation approved, Mohela account active. (There was some time before that where I could see my application status by entering my info into the status check page on Mohela's website, but this is the date when I could set up an actual login.)
Around 1/15/23 - PSLF application form marked "processed" in Mohela.
2/22/23 - Received a letter indicating that my two employers were approved on 2/16, but that I only had 4 qualifying payments (the four that were counted from the time of my consolidation to the date of the letter).
3/10/23 - Used the online chat feature to ask about the status of my account. The rep said that my employers had been approved and they didn't need anything more from me. Just wait the 90 business days from 2/16 (which would have been 6/28/23)
3/28/23 - Did my nearly daily check of the Mohela app. Everything looked the same, except that my balance was zero. Screamed & freaked my husband out. My payment counts had never updated.
3/29/23 (today) - Checked the app again. Error message, no active loans. Checked the website, loans in good standing and happy face! Just for good measure, I called and was told I was sent a direct to discharge letter yesterday. I asked if I could get it by email, and it showed up in 30 seconds. So I've got written proof!
I feel so lucky to have gotten through this process relatively quickly and quite smoothly. I'm rooting for those of you who've had a rough go of it and are still waiting! Don't lose hope!

2023.03.30 01:14 RoombaReaps Accidental Soccer Ball REVENGE
I went to a lot of schools growing up, one every few years.
This one in particular was pretty eventful, even a case of Mistaken Identity but that's a different story.
I was often targeted for bullying and all that jazz, and for some reason this one girl in particular put down every girl around. Always bragging about her fake hoop earrings being real gold when they're not (she got attacked because of that lie, someone wanted to steal them out of her ears). Regularly sitting on people (after pushing them down to the ground) because, quote, "I have a fat ass, feel how fat it is!" note: she was pretty skinny and this was middle school.
This story starts in the Girls Locker Room, we were just finished with gym class and my locker was a small one near the floor so I had to kneel down to grab my things so I could change. As per the usual, this girl was rough housing with another girl, they were pushing each other around for some reason I didn't care to listen to. I often kept my nose out of other's business. But this time it became my business as the girl she shoved landed on me with her full weight, and my jaw/neck landed RIGHT onto the mechanism that sticks up out of the locker door hard enough to bleed and bruise immediately.
I reacted in shock from the sudden pain, stood up and ran out of the now quite locker room to get help from the pain I felt strong enough to draw tears from my eyes. I could feel the blood dripping down my neck when the gym teacher asked what happened.
I get patched up, and the next day what does this girl do?
While talking with her two friends, she pointed at me as I walked by and stated "See that girl? I punched her and she didn't do sh*t about it!"
Please bear in mind at this time I was in karate/self defense classes, but was also in anger management classes, I know how I would've realistically reacted to actually getting punched/attacked so her statement pissed me off. I was debating what to do about it but couldn't think of anything that wouldn't backlash. That day in gym we were all out on the field playing soccer and I was WAY out in the field. At the end, I decided not to carry the ball just because. So I kicked that ball as hard as I could, it had a nice curve that landed RIGHT on her butt! Everyone could hear the sound of impact in the field.
She screamed, turned around and yelled to know who did it. I just ignored her and kept walking, trying so hard to not smirk.
For the rest of that week she couldn't sit and needed one of those inflatable butt pillows/seats. I felt that was revenge enough.

2023.03.30 01:14 Dear-Exercise-3407 :/
My last resort was the buy fancy rats from pet stores but I could never submit to that. Breeders all around me have no availability of them. I am deeply saddened and was wondering if anyone knew of a breeder near me. I live in San Antonio Texas (bexar county) or could someone tell me why there is a shortage of pet rats it seems (atleast near me) please dm 🙏🙏

2023.03.30 01:12 Mooraell Check-in streak 2012
Once per day by number of consecutive days
Continued from here
- You can count once per day either in your timezone or UTC +0 if you don't want to reveal your location
- Add the number of your consecutive daily counts in this thread to the previous count (once you lose your streak it goes back to 1)
- Get is at 10,000, we might need to readjust along the way if necessary
- The streak is lost when there's no one to reply to during 24hrs. In other words, you need another counter to hold the streak, otherwise it goes back down to 1. This means no double counts, no 'stealth double counts' to keep the streak either.
Feel free to use RemindMe bots or whatever, or pair your count with a daily habit you want to introduce irl as a reward mechanism if that helps you!

2023.03.30 01:12 DevilBoy216 Did anyone get a message like this on FanFiction.net?
I got a PM on FanFiction.net titled "Don't waste your writing talent!" with the following text written in the body of the message.
"Dear author, I am an editor from Webnovel, one of the world's biggest online writing communities. I have noticed your excellent work and its great potential. Since March 2023, Webnovel has launched its annual writing contest: WSA (Webnovel Spirit Awards). The contest has been held for 3 years, each lasting 10 months, with a prize pool of up to $1,000,000 and the gold prize receiving $10,000 in cash. We sincerely invite you to join Webnovel and participate in the WSA. This year, we have set up special newbies prizes for new authors like you, who can compete to win $8,000 cash just by publishing your first work on webnovel! At the same time, we offer 50% royalities and a monthly minimum guarantee of $200."
It then lists a website, Facebook page, email, and link to a Discord server.
The whole thing looked to me like another scam/spam PM at first (got them every now and then), but the event is supposedly legit, with a full website and YouTube page instructing on how to enter the contest, even though I've never heard of them. The message looks very automated (saying just "author" in the response and not my username), claiming to notice my work (while not listing any particular moments or specifics), the contest has supposedly been around every three years despite it being started "since" this current year, and the account it was sent from has no bio or favorite stories in it.
Has anybody had any experience with this group, or is it just another scam? If it is a scam, I'd like to make people more aware of it with this post.
Personally, even if it wasn't a scam, I'm doubtful I'd work with anyone who considers what I write to be a "waste", especially when I've written nearly 2 millions words worth of stories, and the 3rd longest one for one of the fandoms I've written for. Pretty insulting for a sales pitch.

2023.03.30 01:11 Jassx_ [Other] Saving money on housing for trips?
I’m a college student and have been wanting to go on a major trip to multiple theme parks for awhile now. I have done small day trips to parks near me but that’s about it. As you can imagine with me being in college I do not have tons of money to be spending on hotels and I also don’t have any travel points. I’m just wondering from people who have experience what is the best way to save money on a trip especially when it comes to finding a place to stay. I have some friends around the country I can stay with but that basically only applies to Indiana and the surrounding states. I have heard of people staying in their cars which id be fine with but I’m worried about the safety of that. Any and all advice is welcome.

2023.03.30 01:10 Valuable-Camel-1877 Can someone help me find my "Special dollies"
There was this certain type of doll my parents used to buy for me when I was little. It would've been around 2005-2006. They were super cheap baby dolls from Wal-Mart. It had a bean bag body, plastic head, and plastic arms and legs. The head was so circular that it almost looked like a ball. The eyes opened and closed when you laid it back. It had little red eyebrows, and its mouth was just a small hole that its thumb could fit into. One of it's hand had the pinky and thumb out. If anyone could help me find even a photo of this doll, or where i could find one, it would mean the world to me. I used to call them my "special dollies." I carried them around everywhere, and now that I have my own little ones, I'd just love to see them playing with something that brought me so much joy as a child.

2023.03.30 01:10 Jalal_Tagreeb Debunked in the month of victory and never to return to Islam
I encourage anyone who has doubts to think carefully, ask critical questions and seek answers from different sources. Most importantly, I advise Muslim apologists not to be hard-headed and think that they are always right. You can learn from my case. I studied the Quran and Hadith for around 20 years, practised debates, and prepared very well. I felt very self-confident with high ego and after watching the debate between Ahmed Deedat and Jimmy Swaggart I was so excited and thrilled of Deedat’s victory over the Christian pastor. Inspired by that and by Dr. Zakir Naik approach – which follows nearly the same approach – I thought that I am invincible. It was time to move to the UK and make the change there. I was very confident that I would be successful and aimed at defeating secularists and Christians and bringing them down in debates. I was very insistent to win all encounters, I had put plans for that. For example, unlike the old days, now we have new technologies such as the Internet and social media platforms, which I planned to use in order to achieve my goals, spread my results and victory. However, the setback was that I was decisively defeated in debates with Christians and secularists and all my plans turned on me.
The good thing about that is that there is absolutely no way back to Islam under any circumstances (e.g., to repent), because whether I intentionally or unintentionally tried to defend and promote Islam, or proselytize Islamic ideas, or even if I plan future counter debates with religious/non-religious groups as a form of revenge, all that is now useless and has no effect at all, because:
- I fully admitted the defeat, thus, the credibility of any future attempts to defend Islam have been aborted beforehand. The result is final and objective. Why would potential converts to Islam listen to someone who was once defeated in debates with secularists and Christians, admitted that and submitted a testimony?
- The case was fully documented and was published to serve as a source material for freethinkers in the Muslim world. Thanks for the Internet, that never forgets anything!
- FACT: if someone simply says he/she is an ex-Muslim then by virtue of that fact, he/she is an ex-Muslim according to Islamic Sharia (religious law). Sharia is simple!
- It is "Haram" (forbidden by Islamic law) to say that you are not Muslim when you are.
- According to the rules of fiqh, this is clear apostasy from Islam. As an example, the Reliance of the Traveller (Umdat al-Salik) by al-Misri, says in its section *APOSTASY FROM ISLAM* that the following takes one out of Islam: - “to intend to commit unbelief, even if in the future. And like this intention is hesitating whether to do so or not: one thereby immediately commits unbelief”; (p. 596-597) - “to be sarcastic about any ruling of the Sacred Law” (p. 597).
If you are inside a closed bottle you can shout as you like, no one can hear you. Which is good if you are shouting and saying wrong ideas and using wrong logic. That was one of the advantages of announcing my testimony; it rendered my supportive opinion on Islam useless. I am working to help others. I now work for both the secular and Christian communities. Where I was given duties and homeworks related to my skills (e.g. translation, research, etc). I also work as a ghostwriter. I have also published other articles on secular websites.
