Faux Leather Dining Chair
This is a faux leather dining chair made of leather. The material of this dining chair is its greatest advantage. This dining chair is anti-dirty, anti-sinking, and waterproof due to its leather construction. All you have to do is wipe it lightly with a rag, which will save you a lot of time cleaning. This dining chair's back is in the shape of a shell. The brown leather chair has a European flair and appears very high-end. Brown has always elicited a sense of serenity and tranquility in his listeners. It's also possible to emphasize the sensation of quality. The echo of the shell adds to the beauty of the whole. The chair legs are simple yet sturdy, and they're straightforward to put together. Any table can be used with it.

2023.03.24 07:27 staticsparke46 Big questions about probate and criminal or common law in sc

So my grandfather passed away last year. In May. Probate was opened immediately by my brother 28m and I wasn't aware until notified as the courts are supposed to.
Me and my brother I thought was inseparable but apparently that is not the case. He held some grudges that I was oblivious too. And did some less than brotherly things behind my back.
I dad some substance issues years back and it was short lived. I got help and hoped it never got wind back home since it was out of town working when I did.
My grandfather had many revisions of his will all state 50/50 between me and him. We are surviving memebers. I thought that would never be a issue. But upon his death he left a small Ira to me and brother and it was also 50/50
I put my share away in cd's to cover half the funeral cost and prevent any debtors from the estate. This is where things got weird.
brother was named excutor. Which he had not done in any of the previous revisions. I moved into the home a year prior to help pops during the last year of his life. He had a stroke I built ramps got a mobility chair and lift for his truck ect. unfortunately He died of a massive bedsore that went septic in a short term care facility.
2 weeks after by brother comes by tells me he is gonna take all the guns. Valuables and the 20k truck. So I agreed and even helped him load it.
Then he goes on to tell me he was regularly stopping by to tell pops I was doing a list of illicit things and playing Me out to be a drug addict and all these other things that just didn't make sense. Explains why he started acting indifferent towards me. Kept asking Me if I hated him for it. But I have calmed down a ton in my time and I guess he was trying to get a rise from me He then tells me about when I got locked up. Inwas hoping nobody knew. But then it dawned on me my wife had to ask him for the bail cause I had all the damn cards. Well when she went to get it cause he agreed. He tried to solicit her for the money. I had just discovered a 4year affair before this so you can only imagine what it took for her to tell me that when i was released on a pr. But she did and I laughed and dismissed it cause I thought ain't no way my bro did that. Well he was there 2 weeks after the last person we had any ties to each other through had died. Telling me he in fact did do that. And meant it. So I kept my cool. And I said why would you do that. I laughed in her face defending you. And he goes on to tell me how all this shit he told pops. And rubbing her cheating in my face and shit. Then finally I finally gave up hoping he wouldn't drive off shitfaced. And instead encouraged him to. Be fore his departure he showed me a new 380 with one in the chamber he had in his pocket the whole time. So I was fucking mind blown.
I think he intended to kill me. Cause of my anger issues I resolved in council while I was working out of town. So question is. I feel like him doing that to my wife was fucking illegal in some manner? Was it? Am I over reacting here or what cause it's just unexpected.
On another note. He said I can fuck myself and is not paying any of the funeral cost. And hopes the place o lived in my entire child hood goes to auctions for pennies on the dollar. Cause he had a step daddy when mom passed and dad. So he had that benefit I had a pops. And he died thinking the worst of me when I was sober and doing my best. And I know as executor he can take certain valuables. I didn't care about anyways. Coins guns the 20k truck. So something about what he is doing feels wrong. As well. He hasn't done the taxes. I paid them. He hasn't done anything but take the stuff. Plus I had a wrongful death case law firm ready to jump the short term rehabs shit for neglect and wrongful death. If it was greed I figured he would jump all over that but he instead wanted nothing to do with it. It was pro bona shit is not adding up here
In short my brother reveals he is a asshole after my grandfather passing. With 50/50 assets divided amongst us two. And a 50/50 ira that was verbally agreed was intended for his funeral expense my brother gets his half the ira and gets mad i got mu half as well decided to take a easy 75k worth of stuff. Was made excutor in the will. And seems to be on a power trip. What can i do to try and not loose the home here..
Part 2. He also made a attempt to solicit my wife over he need for bail money for me. I laughed in her face when she told me, believing she was mistaken. He comes to rub it in my face that she was telling the truth with a loaded pistol in his pocket.. Really got me fucked up. I thought we were brothers. What can I do about that? That's gotta be illegal some how. I feel horrible for my reaction initially
Please mods don't take this down I don't know a shorter way to word this and I could really use some sound advice here.
What can I do about my brother's behavior? Over probate? Over his actions towards my wife? Over his possible intent to kill me? I'm at a fucking loss here

2023.03.24 07:26 JojoV76 How do I [30F] politely distance myself from a coworker [60sF] that bugs me?

Part of my job requires me to spend 3 days sitting in a room with a handful of other people, discussing our work. Seats are not fully assigned, but each table in the room is based on your role. Since this woman and I have the same role, we are always at the same table.
I usually arrive on time, she often arrives late. Because of this, I cannot choose where I sit based on where she sits. She often sits next to me. Even when there's no open seat next to me, she will pull up an extra chair and put herself between me and someone else.
I wouldn't care, except she is constantly trying to talk to me in the middle of these meetings. And it's not just a random comment here or there (which other people do and is fine). But with her, she tries to have a full on conversation. She will say something and as soon as I respond, even with just a nod or a smile, she will start asking me questions or going on and on about something. All while I am trying to focus on the actual meeting.
I have tried simply ignoring her and pretending I don't hear her. She then proceeds to tap on my shoulder or touch me in some other way to get my attention and repeats herself.
I have tried saying, "I am trying to focus on this meeting." She stops for a few minutes, then starts again.
I cannot be outright rude to her, because it is a small work group and I do not want to look like a jerk or deal with any resulting drama 3 days a week. That will only stress me out even more than this does.
Today, though, my frustration definitely started to show. She was out last week with covid. Came back this week, still showing symptoms, and of course, sat right next to me. She was wearing a mask, but proceeded to take it off every time she wanted to talk, so I'm not sure what the point was of her wearing it in the first place. She also at one point grabbed a used tissue off the table to wipe her nose, put it down, and a few minutes later reached out and touched my hand to get my attention. So beyond just being annoying, she was now being extremely inconsiderate in terms of exposing me to covid.
Because of this, I found myself really getting frustrated. When she touched my hand, it was to ask me who a person was that was speaking to the group but is not normally in the room. I very curtly said, "I don't know," and didn't even look at her. She then seemed to think I didn't realize who she was talking about and leaned into my space and pointed at the person she was referring to. I ignored her.
Another coworker answered her question, but I think they thought I was being rude. Other people at work do not seem as phased by her as I am. But she really gets on my nerves and today felt like a final straw.
So, any ideas on how to politely distance myself from this woman without causing any drama?
Tldr: woman at work won't stop talking to me, exposed me to covid, how do I get her to leave me alone?

2023.03.24 07:24 Omega9927 My Best Worst Run So Far

This is a long post! Tl;Dr at the end!
So I just started a new run today, modded to hell and back but primarily QoL stuff, Britas, They Knew, Only Cure (it's a fun alternative when the hazmats are all hiding) and Don't Feed The Zombies and Susceptible. I turn off DFTZ hordes because they're broken, and instead zombies only eat corpses they happen to wander past, which is fun.
I have just shy of 300 hours in the game, but don't let that fool you I'm really, really bad at it, so I'm doing my absolute best here to give it a good good try. My character is Maya Hallman, dyslexic burglar who has a lot of focus on being small, quick and stealthy. I know stealth is usually pretty, meh, but when it starts at 3 and you have inconspicuous and graceful it's usually pretty handy to have.
It's worth noting I also installed Evolving Traits World for this run and for the first time. So it turns out Maya is also super anxious and has a lot of trouble sleeping, which is incredibly relatable. This becomes relevant later. Ish.
Maya spawmed in Riverside, at a library and got a good early bump to a lot of recipes through sitting and reading magazines. She was also prepared for the apocalypse and started with a spiked baseball bat, and a hunting knife. There was a commercial kitchen nearby with some steak and chicken just sitting on the benches, so she slapped that in the oven and had a meal for for a queen. Then she went and found a quaint little house free of zombies, behind a tall invincible fence, and dropped her bags there, got changed into her pajamas -a teal satin neglige she definitely didn't pull off a zombie- and slept.
Or so I thought, instead of sleeping, every zombie that walked past the house stirred her awake. So did every single random sound event brought on by the Random Sound Events mod. So the first night was tough to sleep through, even at maximum fatigue. But eventually, after several hours of trying, Maya was exactly well rested enough to get to it. Some powerful item organising later, some early morning Exposure Survival and a bowl of pasta later, we head out to start sweeping through the street.
There were a lot of zombies, and the baseball bat didn't last too long, neither did the hunting knife. But we found and axe and a crowbar so we have backup weapons and they're pretty good. Maya is a burglar anyway, she knows her way around a crowbar pretty well. Using our new weapons and a mostly cleared of food street, we go just up the road to a nearby gigamart. The back door is not only unlocked, but entirely missing so we walk straight on in.
Aaaand set off an alarm. Shit. Maya grabs three fridges and two shelving units worth of food and drink without looking at it, runs home through a couple other houses, and dumps all the food in the fridge or the cupboard. Among the goods are some seven sacks of fruits and vegetables, and about thirty kilos of non-perishables. Tinned foods, cereals and even some chips. A not so bad haul!
I proceed to immediately forget about the alarm, and the crazed blitz out of the store witnessed by many zombies.
A slightly more restful night, and we head to a nearby school parking lot, where I find a bike with a full tank of gas, and a jeep of some description with cracked windows, but otherwise pretty well maintained. We get the bike hotwired no problem and find a key to the jeep. But there's a really fancy looking sports car I'm interested in looking inside of, so I decided to test out one of my other mods I've never really played with.
Better Lockpicking! Maya grabs her newly baptised in blood crowbar, and I get a fun little minigame to pry open the door. I've never done this before, but it's cool! It also drains endurance like nothing else I've ever seen before, and my endurance seems to be coming back much slower than normal, but that's fine. I just want to get inside the car!
Well something I didn't think of, is all the noise this would make, and the inability to fight due to not having any endurance left. All those zombies dragged in by the alarm have been quietly and politely snacking on corpses in my street but otherwise leaving me alone. Until now, because why eat a dead corpse when you can eat a fresh one! So a horde some fifty or sixty thick comes shambling over to contact me in regards to my new cars extended warranty, and take a deposit of flesh upfront. After lots of crazed dragging around, Maya ends up just barely jumping on the bike and getting out of there.
One cool thing is whatever model bike this is has no horn, and instead pressing Q just revs the engine really loudly. So we do that for a while to drag zombies away from home, but it's not good enough in the end and we have to crash somewhere else for the night. I clear out no less than three houses, and STILL have to move onto a fourth house because all the exhausted attacking takes too long and draws too much attention from the zeds. I forgot to clear the fourth. Maya is so tired she passes out and sleeps for six continuous hours before waking up for the first time.
Too rested to sleep more, and with our sleeping pills at home, I check the bathroom to see if there's any in there, and get greeted by two zombies who I had no idea were in the house but of course, it makes sense. I did literally just, not check the house at all. Thankfully Maya is rested, so she takes them down with no worries. No sleeping pills, but that's fine. We find a second jeep, in absolutely perfect condition, and fill her up with fuel siphoned from the bike. Which had so much in it there's even still a bit left in case of an emergency!
We drive back home, and find that the hordes have moved around but are definitely still in the area. But with time, motivation, and a detour through the school, I drag them off in little clusters and slowly whittle them down. I even find a bottle of bourbon on one of them, stuff a pair of zombie socks in the top, and make my first Molotov in 300 hours. Absolutely satisfying, nothing goes amiss, I train all the zombies into a neatly packed congaline of flames and they all die politely.
Maya heads back home and has another restless night, waking up around four in the morning. Eat, take care of the zombies chewing on corpses in the back yard, watch the woodcraft guy take his shirt off on tv. Living the dream. But by now the zombies are starting to stink up the place and we've narrowly avoided corpse sickness by taking that break in the random house for a night, so i decided it's time to start burning bodies. Maya lights a campfire in the back yard and starts tossing corpses into it, easy enough!
But when she stops to have a cigarette, a zombie sneaks up on her. Drawn in no doubt by the crackling flames and the sound of burning flesh, so it's a scramble to pull her mask back on before she gets sick while also training the zombies through the campfire. Hey, at least I won't have to cremate them one by one this way?
Several very close calls and a lacerated arm later, the horde I had utterly forgotten about being drawn into and avoided in the school, is finally, finally, dealt with. So, Maya heads on into the kitchen through the back door for a well earned strawberry milk!
And immediately bursts into flames because a flaming zombie managed to die just on the cusp of my house and now the kitchen is on fire! And I don't have an extinguisher yet! The Stop Drop And Roll mod comes in clutch, and Maya puts the fire out before it gets too bad. She'll be tender on the lower torso for a while, but all in all that's a good trade for her life. The screams of pain draw in a couple of stragglers, but only four zombies comes to check it out. They stumble over some still burning corpses -one actually lost interest in chasing Maya and instead went to monch on a flaming corpse of its own accord- and quickly perish
Then, finally safe, again, Maya heads inside to watch the damage unfold and also, finish off that damned strawberry milk before the fridge burns down. All the counters are gone, all the weapons and the guns, all the cooking gear and even my cupboard full of drugs. But I managed to save my spare bags and it's honestly very pretty, the effects of a fire. Eventually, the fire dies out and only three tiles of kitchen remain. The one with the fridge, the one with the corner cupboard full of non-perishables, and a single wooden chair.
Counting her lucky stars, Maya doesn't even get pajama'd and instead just falls into bed. Somehow, the food, arguably the most important stuff I had, because I pulled it from every house in a two street grid, survived. All the weapons and the drugs and cigarettes are replaceable, and the burns will heal. For the first time ever, I actually have a recoverable run here! If this was my typical run, I would have been dragged down by flaming zombies for daring to use a new mechanic. I'm feeling good about this! I'll update when I inevitably wraparound a stopsign moving all my stuff!
Tl;Dr, Shenanigans after shenanigans ensue that end up with a massive, flaming horde wandering through my base in the early days of a new run, and burning down everything EXCEPT my stockpile of food, kicking off what will hopefully be a very badass character arc!

2023.03.24 07:23 GroundbreakingChip46 Journal Part2: Something Was In My Locker Today.

Here’s the first part in case you missed it:

October 10th, 2014: It’s been two days since someone broke into our house. After checking every nook and cranny in my room, I can say for sure that nothing was taken. Still, I thought that was a sign the week was going to be rough, but after today it’s looking up.
It started like every other day. I got up, put on my clothes, and went downstairs to eat. When I walked into the dining room, I saw my dad hunched over at the table and noticed there were a few more gray hairs today. He was pushing glasses up to his eyes, sipping coffee out of a mug, and reading something on a laptop. His morning routine.
I leaned over his shoulder, “Doing some research, old man?”
“I’m a journalist, Sam. I’m always doing research,” he sighed.
“What are looking up now?”
My dad leaned back and shooed me away.
“I’ll tell you, but go and grab your plate. I don’t want you to be late for school.”
I nodded and turned to leave. My dad put a hand on my shoulder before I took a step.
“Get my plate too. I’m going to be here for a while.” He leaned over his laptop and started where he left off.
“Okay, Dad,” I chuckled.
My plate was on the kitchen counter, next to the stove. My mom left me a fruit smile gummy next to the plate. No note that said “I love you,” or “have a good day,” just a smiley face gummy. I love her, but that woman is too goofy for me sometimes. Anyways, I got me and dads plates and sat down at the table.
“I see you’re changing your brown hair color, can’t say gray looks much better,” I teased.
“Just you wait, one day you’re going to be in my shoes. Then I’ll be the one laughing.”
“I’ll just shave my head and then you’ll never see a strand of gray.”
My dad laughed a little bit, “That’ll be the day!”
We sat there and ate for a while. Mom made bacon and eggs. She hasn’t been able to eat with us since her schedule changed. I kind of miss seeing her in the morning. It always helped me mentally prepare for school. I looked up and saw my dad munching on bacon as he looked at his laptop. He had tired eyes. The kind you get after receiving bad news. I figured whatever they had him researching must have been messed up, even for him. He’s been a journalist for over a decade. He started working at a local paper, small time stuff. Now, he’s a freelance journalist with a lot of connections. One thing you learn in the making of news is that the grotesque catches people’s eyes. That’s the kind of stuff he looked for when he was worming his way up in the journalism world. Doing that exposes you to a lot of things, you grow numb overtime, but there were a few things that would always rattle dad. I guess you just can’t grow a tolerance to everything.
“So what are you doing?” I said as I dug into my eggs.
My dad took a sip from his mug and set back down. He tapped the bridge of his glasses. I always assumed he did this because he’d still be trying to piece the story together by the time I asked him.
“The Goodwill press asked me to do a job for them. A family has asked them to write an article about their son. He passed away a few years ago in 2008.” I looked up from my plate, “How’d he die?”
“He was murdered. The worst case this town ever had. They found him on the side of a backroad, west of here. His body was mutilated, unrecognizable.”
Dad took off his glasses and pressed his temple.
“Poor boy was only eight years old. Would have been fourteen now. Your age.”
“What was his name?” I asked.
“Marcus Thatcher.”
“Thatcher? There’s someone named Kyle Thatcher that goes to our school. I think he’s a sophomore.”
I took a bite out of some bacon, “Who killed him?”
My dad shrugged, “Who knows? They never found enough substantial evidence to even place a suspect. It’s a cold case now. We may never know. I don’t want to even imagine how his parents must feel.”
He tapped the table and pointed at my plate, “Finish your food and get out of here. It’s almost time for you to leave.”
Nothing much happened in school, not until the end. Fourth period ended and I was going to my locker. Unfortunately, and this was the downer of the day, I saw Derek. The big oaf locked eyes with me and I knew I was fucked. Derek got taller this year, bigger too. Even being far away didn’t stop him from towering over me. He still had the same stupid, curly, haircut and so many freckles. He stood on the opposite end of the hall, the side I had to get to. As soon as he saw me, Derek walked in my direction. I want to say that I didn’t get scared. That I stood in place and eyed him down, but I didn’t. My heart sank and I went to the left side of the hallway. Lockers lined the walls. I looked at the locker numbers, hoping that Derek would just leave me alone. I didn’t realize it at the time, but I held my chest. My asthma can get triggered by stress and fear so it was instinct. We were about to pass one another and I thought he was going to let me be. Then he lunged at me and slammed his fist against the locker, the boom from its impact echoed through the halls. I jumped. He grabbed my collar, not letting me have the time to react, and pulled me right in his face. He stared at me, his eyes always looked bloodshot. My chest felt tight and I couldn’t get enough air in. First there was a wheeze and then I started to cough. It was only then he let me go, with a shit-eating grin. He pushed me against the locker and walked away. He loved making me have an asthma attack, although this wasn’t his favorite way. No, he only does that when he has a bad day. I suppose today must have been a good one.
I walked to my locker, coughing. It felt like a cloud was filling my lungs. I didn’t want to run and make it worse, but now I needed to get to my locker because my inhaler was in there. When I got there I twisted and turned the dial lock. It seems dumb to put an inhaler inside a locked container, but guess what happens if I don’t? Derek or his friends steal it. Either by taking it when I’m not looking or by just shoving their hands in my pockets. I’ve learned to not do anything about it. I used to when he first started bullying me, but he would just get suspended and come back super pissed. He and his friends would jump me. After that happened for the third time, I got the gist. The teachers wouldn’t help. I've tried to get used to it, but I can't. I let it happen or run if I can, but I want it to stop so much. Although, I know I could never make it stop. When I opened my locker, I cursed at myself and this day. It was another reminder of how I was Derek’s bitch. I pulled the door open and got my inhaler. I breathed in its air and while I waited for myself to calm down, I saw something. Inside my locker was a heart. Not a literal heart, but a piece of paper cut into the shape of one. Nothing was written on it and I didn’t find anything else inside. I turned the paper over and saw whoever made it glued glitter and plastic jewels to the other side. It wasn’t put on haphazardly either. It was packed together until it was like a broken mirror, sparkling in the fluorescent light.
“Who did this?” I said to myself as I moved the paper and watched it sparkle.
At first I thought it could’ve been Derek or his friends, but I never open my locker when I even think they could be around. I always make sure the hallway is empty. Sure, they could have picked the lock, but in all of the years of harassment, never once did they mess with my locker. I don’t think they know what my locker number is. Whatever they would steal from me was on my person or near my vicinity. They wanted to see my face while they fucked with me, messing with my locker wouldn’t accomplish that. Then I wondered if a teacher or one of my classmates put it in my locker. Maybe they saw how I was being treated and were trying to show some support. It’s probably far from that, but whoever put this here was at least trying to give me a positive gesture.
“Maybe it was a girl”—I smiled and put the paper in my pocket— “as if.”
On the walk home, I would take out the heart and look at it. It helped relieve the stress whenever I thought of Derek. Even now it helps. While I lay on my bed, I can’t help but take it out and admire it. It doesn’t beat having an actual friend, but it’s nice to have someone who is friendly with me. I wonder if they’ll put more in. Should I respond? I think that if they do, I’ll say thank you. I’ll write again if anything interesting happens or if I get more of those hearts.

(Hey, this is Thomas Sealock. I’m just here to say thank you for reading. I also ask for any criticism to be left in the comments. I appreciate any feedback on my story; good or bad. It took a while to write this one. I don’t know why because it was just two and a half pages long. Fun fact, I changed the date on the last post because October 10th is on a Friday and so I put it as the 8th so this post could be the 10th and I just realized I could have just put this post on the 13th and it would’ve been fine. I didn’t need to change the date on the last one. Oh my god…. Fuck it. I’m keeping the change out of spite! I’ll continue to try and make new posts that update the story on a daily basis. I have finals in May and I don’t know how long this will take to complete so I 'll see. Well, I’ll either change my post schedule (I guess that’s what we’ll call it “post schedule”) because of school or if I find that trying to make a new post everyday hurts the overall quality of the story and I need to take more time to plan out the next couple of posts. Thank you for reading this and have a good day.)

2023.03.24 07:19 monstarehab Depressed and failing

Hello. I usually don't post things like this on the internet, but I just have too much stress on my shoulders and I really want to vent.
Oh where do I even start? I am a transfer student from a small, selective liberal arts school. I transferred in after my freshman year, and I'm a graduating senior.
I'm unmotivated to go to class and do my assignments. My grades are dropping year after year, I get A's on subjects that I'm really interested in, and barely passing some of the classes I'm taking., I'm talking about 1% above the failing limit. I submitted a paper 54 days late, and right now I'm projected to fail 3 of 4 classes if I don't take immediate action.
The past 3 years at UMass are meh at best, and hell at its worst. I've never been to bluewall, never joined any clubs. I've made about 4-5 "friends" that I say hello to when I see them irl, but I've never, and I'm talking about NEVER, been invited to do anything, including small stuff like going to lunch. I am always the one initiating things, and 70% of the time they don't even respond within a day.
I'm mega lonely at UMass. I'm not the same person I used to be. I lost motivation to do everything. I don't even want to go to class, because despite having a bunch of people surrounding me, nobody ever talks to me, and I've never made a single connection from my in-person classes. ZERO. It makes me sad that there are so many people around me and everyonr seems to have their own friend group and talk to each other about whatever's going on outside of class. And to clarify, it's not that I don't try. I do talk to people, but they don't seem interested. they don't even say hello the next time I see them. What has this world become? Why can't we even have the most basic human decency? All we think about is unwritten social rules, act normal like everyone else so you're not perceived as thirsty or not normal
I get sad whenever I see people hanging out, enjoying the sun outside with a blanket, laughing in a group, etc. I'm constantly reminded by how lonely I am. I want to be the one sitting on a blanket in the sun, I want to be the one throwing football with friends, I want to someday get a call from someone and hear something like "hey do you want to go thrifting?".
I know I can dream of any of those scenarios and not take action. Trust me, I've asked plenty of people to hang out, and I'm constantly being rejected. They're always busy. And even if they do hang with me, we don't really have the same interests, we don't really click
One of my old friends from my previous school didn't believe me, she thought that I'm just not trying hard enough, until I made 44 screenshots of me asking more than 10 people to hang out, get food, etc, and either get no response or get "nah I'm busy".
I don't understand why people don't respond to my messages. I don't get why I'm being treated this way at UMass. I feel like I'm so unlucky. I was so depressed at a certain point last year, instead of waiting 2 weeks for an appointment for a therapy session with UMass, I went to the writing center, hinted that I needed help mentally. They laughed at me and said "why are you coming to the writing center when you don't even have a draft", they also didn't empathize the fact that my paper was overdue by over 30 days.
To be honest, I'm not super unattractive and I don't have had hygiene. I'm not super nerdy, and I don't look like someone who has no friends. If anyrhing, I look like I put a lot of effort into how I dress and carry myself, and my online friend loves how I dress and told me that I should post fit pics on Instagram. Well, time to use a tripod I guess because nobody takes pictures of me. Also, it bothers me so much that I can dress well, but I don't have anywhere to go. What's the point?
I do sports. I go to the gym often. Many people recognize my face at the gym because honestly I'm quite good at what I do. I like to talk to people at the gym, when I'm playing basketball or whatever, I try to be nice and make light hearted jokes, only to be ignored most of the time.
Speaking of being ignored. I tried to apply to positions for clubs but never heard back from them. I try to post on Umass discords and I get ignored most of the time.
Right now the only social interaction I get is from online video games. I play video games way too much and I'm skipping classes and postponing my assignments to play video games. I'm not really addicted though, because I can stop whenever I want, I just don't have any motivation to do SCHOOL work.
2 semesters ago a camous police knocked on my door and asked me where my neighbor was, because one of my neighbors friends reported to the police that he's depressed, and needed a therapy dog. That made me really, really sad because 1. many many people like me at UMass are experiencing the same level of agony of loneliness, 2. nobody would even notice and reach out to me.
I think UMass really could do better. I've lived in 4 states and attended 2 different universities, and I can confidently say that UMass is by far the worst place I've been. Some people might have different opinions, that's ok, but we have to realize that there is a VERY BIG portion of the student population that has never left the state, or the new england area. I don't think Massachusetts people are nice at all. I don't think UMass students are nice and well rounded students despite me really wanting to believe otherwise, but I've been proven wrong time and time again by the things I'm seeing and the things I'm experiencing.
I need someone to tutor me. I need a study partner or something. I'd love to meet creative individuals so we can take creative pictures. I'd love to share the niche genre of music I'm into with someone who would actually understand and appreciate my taste in art. I'd love to have a training partner, I'd love to live my last 2 months at UMass feel real. I feel like I'm living in a simulation. I'm not ashamed to post this on reddit, even if you know who I am irl (doubt you do, but if you do, I bet you didn't know I have been depressed on and off for 3 years). I don't talk about depression to anyone. My old friends know that I'm quite a stoic person. I try to just suck it up and self improve. I improve, improve and improve, I try really hard but I don't see any results. UMass people treat me the same. If you know me irl thru my reddit profile, please reach out. If you feel the same way, reach out too.
I need help. I need your help. Try to start a conversation with a stranger tomorrow. Smile at someone. Don't use headphones for a day. Don't look at your phone when you walk for a day. Compliment a stranger. I want to feel alive again, and I want people like me to know that they're not alone.

2023.03.24 07:12 ft_mgrey Persistent cough after sickness

20 AFAB (he/him) I want to preface this by saying that i do get year round allergies, and occasionally i do get a cough because of my allergies. It's usually a small dry cough and can be helped with me staying hydrated through out the day. I also don't smoke, but my parents do (not in the house, so it doesn't really affect me that much).
Around the last week of December 2022 (around probably the 24-26th) i got a common cold that was running it's course through my house (i live with my parents). I had 2 days where it was really "bad" for a cold, but it was mainly nothing i haven't had before. The cough that came with the cold was horrible though. I have a sensitive gag reflex, and the cough was very persistent and would constantly set off my gag reflex. And after these coughing fits I'd have to spend 30 seconds to 1 minute trying to stop myself from throwing up.
I was initially coughing probably around 4-5 times per hour. Around the 3 week mark the cough seemed to be starting to subside. But instead of fully going away, it has stayed. Now the cough isn't as bad as it was initially and most of the time doesn't persist enough to set my gag reflex off, but at least 1-2 times per day I'll get a really persistent cough that does set it off. I can now go hours without a single cough, but it keeps coming back. (And it's kind of driving me insane) It is currently a dry cough, but even drinking water when i feel the itch isn't helping it.
I am going to make an appointment with my pediatrician, but I'd also like to hear some opinions about what the problem could be. Or even some tips to help it subside a little until i can get in with my pediatrician.

2023.03.24 07:06 Ill_Lettuce_4165 Would you leave my job if you were me?

Hi! I've been working in this family restaurant for years. I am not a part of the family directly but have become friends over working many years with the two owners and have a lot to say about them. I worked my way for 7 years from dishwashing to bussing to serving and I'm proud of my achievement. My two bosses is a giant, big built gentleman,(6 foot 4 at east 230 lbs) and a short pretty woman, both of whom have no prior management experience, or any training (at least would be suggested to me by their actions and mannerisms) in how to operate with employees.
The Male Owner exerts unbelievable amounts of ferocity and aggression when talking to his employees. he claims he's managing "18" (really 12 per shift, and 6 of which are managed by head cook in the back, so really only 3 because he doesn't tell servers what to do) people per shift and it is stressful and that's the reason for his aggression, and he states "I'm only human" as some sort of excuse for being rude. His sisters work as waitresses, and he lets them have it when they make mistakes. "Are you kidding me??? you can't fucking count? I'm losing money because you can't fucking count????!! I lost money there are you stupid?" he says the other night to his youngest sister who mistakenly didn't charge for an extra dish (13.95$). This happens quite often at little mistakes, he openly berates the servers and bussing staff to the point that reviews on the restaurant started to appear not only because of mistakes, but just in general working. one reads as such:
" I recently had a disappointing experience at a local restaurant. Although the food was decent and our server was excellent, we were extremely disheartened by the behavior of one of the owners, a tall, older man who made disrespectful comments to our server as we were packing up our food. His wife, another owner, also spoke poorly of our daughter, who used to be friends with her own daughter. It was evident that these owners have some serious issues. While we love to support small, local businesses, we cannot recommend this particular establishment due to the disrespectful behavior of the owners. " (I reworded this with ChatGPT so it can't be traceable) on this post the owner GAVE CONDESCENDING REMARKS AND OBVIOUS SARCASM to the woman posting.
There is a remarkable amount of reviews to this length on the website. Today they tried charging me 27$ for missed food on a tag that I had served that evening, which is illegal in the state of California, which I had brought up and challenged them on because I find the notion RIDICULOUS. I have never challenged their authority one time in the restaurant and have taken everything with grace even when I can see they are completely wrong. Boss proceeded to say "okay, sure you want to go the legal route *slams papers onto a table gets up and darts over to lady boss*" says to lady boss "write him up warning number one, you get three, three and you're gone. You want it like this go ahead" and he storms into his back office where he sits regularly and drinks nightly.
We then talked after and I stated "I can work the next two weeks so lady boss can take her vacation I am working for her, or I can go now" to which he kicked a chair hardly and said "sit down" and we had a conversation. The conversation basically went, "I'm not going to fire you, I care about you, I'm human, I don't want your money, I don't owe anyone anything, we've been kind to you, if you want to leave its up to you." He really just didn't want his authority challenged, and when I said I'm not going to fucking pay for a mistake, it is not on me legally, I have protections from this. The conversation basically says to me that the ball is in my court. I can stay or leave, They need me to stay because I am a valuable asset, but I am not wanting this treatment. It has happened and continued for years. I feel like I am being manipulated, I have a strong family bond and emotions with these people, that is constantly tested by large boss's angry nature, and woman bosses cattiness. Normally we would talk it out but I am tired of the back and fourth. It feels like things are great one second and ferocious the next, almost like an abusive relationship. It is also annoying of their lack of accepting any wrong-doing.
With context above, would you leave my serving job for a new one, or would you work it through. I'm unsure what to do as I have so much personal investment into clientele (I am very beloved in the restaurant and have 13 good reviews with my name attached) and the innerworkings of the restaurant. I'm certain I could make the same at other restaurants in my area, but I'm not sure if the grass is always greener... maybe someone who has served a long time in a multitude of restaurants can give me an opinion as I have only ever worked in this one, I'm unsure how common this scheme is among bosses, or managers, or whatever other places have as superiors.

2023.03.24 07:02 black-knight-13 The Shining Lady: Aleena Angelos

Name: Aleena Angelos
Age: 16
Appearance: Long black hair, dark green eyes, lithe figure, tanned skin.
Clothing: Tight black jeans, purple tank top, black leather jacket, black heeled boots, dragon necklace around her neck.
Personality: Sweet, friendly, tactical, intelligent, caring, girly, hyper at times, and always willing to do the right thing.
Quirk: Shining Light. Aleena has the ability to absorb any form of light and store it in her body which she can then release whenever she chooses. She can release the light in blasts of energy, create shining wings from her back, release explosive bursts, summon barriers of light, and even transform her body into a solid light entity that increases her over abilities.
Quirk Drawbacks: Alena's Quirk is all about his much light she absorbs. Typically she does this by absorbing sunlight but if she can't get access to sunlight, she uses alternate sources such as lamps and street lights. Moonlight helps but it isn't as effective which makes her much less effective at night. And when she transforms into her light entity form, she can only stay like that for a few moments before it completely drains her stamina and leaves her weakened.
Quirk Supermoves:
Bright Bullet: A condensed burst of light energy Aleena fires from her hand.
Angel Ray: Aleena summons a set of vibrant shining wings that she can use to fly but can also heal her allies and civilians.
Astraea Shelter: Summons a barrier of light energy to keep herself and those around her safe.
Shining Soul: Aleena summons all the light energy in her body and transforms into a solid light being. This form offers her enhanced speed, strength, agility, and the ability to fly.
Hero Name: The Starlight Hero: Astraea
Hero Costume: Purple and blue bodysuit with a star pattern running along the edges of it. A silver belt with a star-shaped buckle, black boots with blue lining, and blue gloves on her hands. A matching protective chest guard is over her chest with a star symbol on the front in silver, and hanging from her shoulders is a short blue and silver cape. Over her eyes is an eyemask with retractable lenses over her eyes to protect her in case her Quirk gets too bright. On her thighs is a set of escrima sticks that she can channel her Quirk into and her belt carries small rounds that can act as flashbangs.
Background: Aleena is Italian, Pakistani, and Greek. Her father was a missionary in Pakistan where he met Aleena's mother and the two instantly fell in love. Her father did a lot of charity work around the world and brought peace to so many families while her mother was a loyal wife that stood by her husband's side and supported him in whatever way she could. After many years of traveling around the world for so many years, the couple settled down in Japan where Aleena was born. Aleena's mother was an incredibly beautiful woman that you didn't always see in Japan which made it easy for her to become a model. As she quickly rose in popularity, Aleena's mother wanted her daughter to be a part of it and even follow in her footsteps but once the young girl saw her first hero in action, she was hooked.
Amazed that so many female heroes could not only use their skills to help people but also their beauty, Aleena thought that she finally found a way to use the looks her mother blessed her with to do some good in Japan just like her father. Now, this is her time to show the world what she can do with her shining light.

2023.03.24 07:02 abysmalrotoscoping How can I contribute more to my marriage?

I feel that my marriage is super imbalanced and I’d like to change that.
My husband is 20 years older than me and makes 10x as much money as I’ve ever made previously in my life. I have never contributed a dime financially to our marriage as I was recently unemployed due to Covid when we married. I’ve never worked since we’ve been together.
I also was not just poor but a poor single mom with a bunch of financial and legal issues. He covered everything without raising an eyebrow. My kids have opportunities I could never have dreamed of for them and my lifestyle went from destitute and miserably stressful to relaxing and luxurious. Like, taking the city bus to dumpy cockroach apartment, to traveling in first class to summer in Europe type of difference.
So on top of this massively imbalanced dynamic, here is what he contributes:
I contribute:
I already feel stretched thin but I am hyper aware of the imbalance every day. He wanted to hire a housekeeper and nanny but that would take away the few things I actually contribute so I’ve resisted even while overwhelmed. I tell myself I’ll be taking care of him when he’s old so I can finally like we’re more even, lol.
But in the meantime, what can I possibly do to be more of an equal partner?

RUSSIAN OFFENSIVE CAMPAIGN ASSESSMENT, MARCH 23, 2023 Wagner Group financier Yevgeny Prigozhin has softened his rhetoric towards the Russian Ministry of Defense (MoD) likely out of fear of completely losing his mercenary force in Bakhmut. Prigozhin denied the Kremlin’s claims that Russia is fighting NATO in Ukraine and questioned whether there are actually Nazis in Ukraine as the Kremlin constantly claims. Bloomberg reported that Prigozhin is preparing to scale back Wagner’s operations in Ukraine after Russian military leadership succeeded in cutting key supplies of personnel and munitions. Ukrainian officials supported ISW’s prior assessments that Russian forces are unable to conduct large-scale, simultaneous offensive campaigns on multiple axes. Russian forces may be shifting their missile strike tactics to focus on Ukrainian military facilities as overall Russian missile strikes decrease, indicating the depletion of Russia’s stocks of high-precision missiles. Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin outlined various measures to support Russian military personnel, the Russian defense industrial base (DIB), and Russian independence from the West in an address to the State Duma. The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) reported that Rosatom may be working to restore three power lines at the Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant (ZNPP) which would increase Russian control over the ZNPP. Russian forces conducted limited ground attacks northeast of Kupyansk and along the Svatove-Kreminna line. Russian forces are continuing to attack Bakhmut City and areas in its vicinity and around Avdiivka. Ukrainian forces continue to conduct raids over the Dnipro River in Kherson Oblast. The Kremlin continues efforts to coerce Russian reservists, conscripts, and other personnel into contract service. Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin announced that Russia is continuing efforts to integrate newly-occupied Ukraine into Russian institutions and infrastructure. Russian forces in Belarus recently redeployed back to Russia ahead of Russia’s spring conscription call-up on April 1.

S-tier prompts

Good prompts

The whatever prompts

Bad prompts

Trash tier prompts

No opinion

These prompts are in the LGBTQ category.
Voice first prompts - women in my experience rarely use voice prompts
Self-care prompts
So that's all the current prompts available for people on Hinge. What do you all think?

2023.03.24 06:42 Reika_Fujishima [AETHER][MIDGARDSORMR][FC][LFM] JOIN AZURE INFINITUM! A Growing, Global, Inclusive, Active, Organized, and Friendly Community Awaits You! Welcoming Players Of All Experience, Availability, & Play-Style!

We are Azure Infinitum
Visit us at: (
You may have seen us in the Aether data center's party finder during our weekly events, or may have seen our recruitment shouts around the realm in-game in Midgardsormr, but there just isn't enough space in those places to really explain everything wonderful about what our Free Company and community is.
Azure Infinitum is an LGBTQ+ friendly community, and welcomes players of all experience level, play style, and availability. We're a warm home with a balance of online players, weekly optional activities, and flexible ranks from our membership, to our support & leadership categories. We have a 24/7 Support Team, a Councilship that governs each tier, seasonal events of our own, and many resources between the games we support and online services.
Who We Are
We are an established 9-year old community who's home is in Midgardsormr Server of Final Fantasy XIV. We are a structured, well-rounded, welcoming, friendly, and organized community that hosts daily events (check out our calendar: ) that provide opportunity for members to excel. We work to provide an arena and opportunities to establish strong bonds and camaraderie between our members. As a community we are driven, we carry each other forward, and we are proud.
Our Name & Philosophy
Learn more about our global community here: (
Learn more about our FFXIV Free Company here: (
Azure Infinitum means "Azure/Blue Infinity or Infinite Blue/Azure" and there is some mythos behind the name that stems from our guild-wide philosophy of kindness, freedom, vigilance, diversity and activity. We promote positive fellowship among members in an organized guild, with our sights open to our unending endless skies, full of possibility and success together.
Our motto is "As Free As The Azure Sky!" which stuck well when our FC was restructured from an old guild in 2014 as Azure was founded, and it was first shouted as we looked out at a clear blue sky above. has continued to be our electric victory as we continue to snowball in success and activity, our members soaring high through the Azure Sky, flying together!
Click here to learn more about our community ranks: (
Our community has an organized ranking structure beginning with Members who comprise the majority of the roster. Scouts are our support team of Members who've stepped up to more officially support the FC, some work on obtaining a future leadership rank. Lieutenants and Officers comprise the proud Azure Council, a diverse group of players of different specialties and services to the FC, making up lower and higher tier leadership, seeing over the Scouts and the FC weekly events, aside from being admins. The FC Infinitum Master oversees all and leads the Azure Council and the company forward while always keeping the heart and vision of the community alive and in sight. Currently we are re-assessing ranks in the free company, giving more support permissions and duties to our Scouts, while the current council operates as a small team of Lieutenants lead by the FC Master.
Everyone Welcome and Who Fits Best
We have an open door policy. Whether you're casual, a returning player, a veteran, or a newbie, we have a vast array of players in our member roster. Our weekly schedule is organized and provides an array of activity for players of most levels, however we like to ask players who're pretty new or under the level cap, to be extra vocal about their needs while they're still unable to attend some daily events or higher level content that most of our weekly lineup focuses on. We want everyone to have as much fun as possible and have the most success. We find that most players enjoy Azure Infinitum, many have stated that they subscribed to FFXIV much longer than they ever would have imagined after they have been around in our community, as they've gotten involved and experienced all that we offer.
Our FC keeps a daily schedule (see here: of events that are hosted by permitted Scouts and Council ranks, these range from 8-man and 24-man raids and map parties, to WT journal groups and trial clear parties or farms, and more- and attending anything isn't mandatory at all here. We're happy to have you, and its up to our members how much they'd like to get involved. Attendance is optional! There's never any stress to attend FC functions.
Savage Raiding Statement
We find that some hardcore raiders looking for free companies just to join their statics who don't already have one, might not fit well if savage raiding is their only or greatest focus, because traditionally Azure does not have a Savage Static, but focuses more on allowing members to organize their own groups and also provides resources to do so. Despite not supporting an official static for the FC, we hope that hardcore raiders enjoy the wealth of our community's wealth of harmony and overall fun, and that everyone may take initiative to seek out or build a raiding static within our community if they are interested, as opposed to missing out on experiencing Azure. Depending on the content season, we may have an Unofficial static lead by a leader, and routinely offer limited time Savage-learning events that may run for a number of months.
Rules and No Drama Policy
Please take a moment to look over our Rules Page at (, we find that rude individuals and people who create drama are the outsiders here that don't fit well. We know its a big page, so at least visit the General Rules section before joining.
Recruitment Care & Activity
People of Azure Infinitum are often if not always good natured players who found their way to our community looking for a place with structure, friendliness, organization, and great activity, or they've been scouted during recruitment drives and have been well screened. Its a place where one can be social and attend everything, or relax in the background and enjoy the services and facilities of being in an active, organized, and friendly FC. We actively recruit periodically to assist with upkeep of community activity levels, and to meet new comrades. A community that closes recruitment can be doomed to stagnation. Its normal for a community to have an inner core of die hards who log in daily regardless of content releases, and also have an outer core of individuals that range from those with less availability to those who check in during Patches. This is why we take extra care in keeping the fresh blood flowing into Azure, cautious recruitment, and support our active model by always staying welcoming and sometimes running recruitment campaigns and other services. Like this ad!
Handling Online Drama
Because we keep a no-drama policy and have a strong communication network, it is leadership's ultimate priority to handle any issues that may come up as soon as possible, and most people appreciate our problem solving which has inspired many other communities. Between our Support & Leadership ranks, we use a number of report and resource channels to handle situations, and perform problem solving protocols & tactics to fairly address issues as possible. Drama is inevitable at some point for any online community, so its important to have a large and strong list of moderators (currently around 60!) and a council of leaders (15+) to quickly handle any problems. Luckily, we don't have a lot of drama, but we're always very well equipped and very prepared. Our community has been commended by game staff in the past for our methods, and we have worked with the FFXIV Special Task Force to ensure as much safety to our community as achievable. It should be stressed that it is up to our membership to report to GM's in-game, and to Azure Leadership should any issues or concerns come up. Its also highly recommended that our members appropriately document evidence that can be used to help us assess situations and make proper decisions. Documenation such as screenshots of harassment is a great example! Our members online safety is greatly important to us and is a number one concern of our leadership team. Our Rules Page at: ( describes a bit more in Chapter 3, including other entries on avoiding/ignoring trolls, playing while intoxicated, depression, and more.
Our Philosophy
We believe in our community and its people, how far we can go, how much we can do for each other, being an experienced community who's core values are positive fellowship, formation of bonds, and indomitable unity.
Azure Infinitum tightly grasps success and masters a casual and lucrative weekly play schedule while inspiring motivation and providing avenues for further success, friendships, and camaraderie among all who freely fly together among our Azure skies.
Founding on the principles of intricately forging a generally drama-free experience with keen leadership and a zealous and mighty membership, Azure has striven to guide and support many hundreds of players through every era of Final Fantasy XIV.
With an illustrious history, company lore, impressive statistics, and a model that is adaptable and blessed with innovative ability, Azure Infinitum claims a dominant presence of excellence and player growth that is possible in our community and extended services.
Estate Organization
We have the entire set-up at our estate, from gardens for members and Krakka Root production (free for members' chocobos), to our stables, nicely uniform clean lawn with hangout spots that are popular, with crafting stations, all available NPCs for simple mats and repairs, cut-scene viewer, toybox, triple-triad board, a fully operational and geared fleet of airships and subs, and our Azure Infinitum Assembly Chamber on the top floor for our meetings where announcements are made at our Grand Assemblies. Check it out if you like at Mist Ward 7 Plot 1.
We also have an organized form of gathering for weekly events in the yard, places to relax, food that is always available on tables at our Cellar, and hold a lot of special events and social games at our Hall. We're also conveniently located next to a Market Board and a Retainer Bell outside of our estate.
Communication and Extended Azure Services
We have multiple services of which none are mandatory, but we provide being ( where our Forums, Event Calendar, News, Company Meeting Summaries, Seasonal Merch Giveaways, Contests, Rules Page, and more take place and can be found. We also have a popular and active Discord Server.
We also have a Facebook Group, Twitter, Tumblr, Instagram, Steam Group, (Look us up! Or visit: ( and Linkshells like our Infinitum Alliance LS for contact and aid from our allies if needed, our Azure Hunters LS for Hunters, and our Azure Industry LS which connects our members to our inner crafting/gathering community for newbies to pros.
Also worthy of mention is our big Company Meetings in-game, known as Azure Infinitum Grand Assemblies. Even though we have several avenues that keep people connected, our live assemblies gather the FC in unity where announcements are made first, and all proposals, ideas, and more, can be decided together live with the Azure Council present.
This network ensures a lot of information and communication gets around and has been exceedingly useful to us.
More On Events
One part of our reputation that often precedes us is our event crafting and hosting.
First, let me make sure its clear that attendance is never mandatory, but those who can make use, when possible, of what we provide each day, benefit from our events each week.
Since our beginning, traditions like our Thursday Treasure Thursdays events have run each week. Our weekly line-up presently begins on Tuesdays post-weekly reset, and consists of Raid Tuesdays, Wondrous Wednesdays (WT Journal Parties, often doubles as Trial Clears and Pony Drops), Treasure Thursdays (Endwalker's timeworn maps with groups of 8 doing up to 3 rounds of maps allowing for up to 24 maps ran), 24-Man Tuesdays (full pre-formed Azure 24-member alliances are made and raids are cleared, will be returning upon the release of EW's 24-man), Super Azure Slayer Sunday (our weekly meetup to do all sorts of PVP content be it Rival Wings or Frontline), and Monstrous Mondays (helps clear the current and previous patch extreme trials).
Special, Seasonal, and Quarterly Events
More info here: ( the latest event news & more at: (
We also have what we call Special and Quarterly Events. These types of events are Weekend-Long-Events that usually consist of a theme or celebratory social events we craft. During these events we hold big Riddle Races, Costume/Glamour shows and contests, 3-Story Mansion Maze Races, Speedrun Dungeon Races, Hide and Seek games, Custom Quest Events, Discord events like Cards Against Humanity nights, Comedy events, PVP Tournament Circuits, and more.
Our Special and Quarterly events are Azure Day Weekend (Takes place 3 times a year across a weekend, celebrates the FC), Azure Summer Festival (3-days at the end of August in partnership with Child's Play, raises money for children in long-term care, anniversary of historic FC event called the Lunar Rebellion), Anniversary Azure Day (a big weekend event in November that celebrates our Founding), Azure Day Saint's Wake (celebrates Halloween/All Saint's Wake), Azure Starlight Day (celebrating Starlight Day/Christmas/December Holiday Season), Azure Grand Melee and Duel Tournaments (PVP Circuit series crowning our PVP Champions) and more.

We're always giving our members a chance to have fun, win big, and make some great memories in the in-game family we've become. Something fun is always on the horizon in Azure.
I almost can't stress enough how friendly our community is. We have a vast variety of members from hardcore gatherers and crafters, social butterflies, chill veterans, experienced raiders, level grinders, support teams, PVP aficionados, mechanic specialists, and mentors. We're also very friendly to all casual players as well and we keep an open door so long as recruits are always aware that we have a no-drama tolerance here.
​Evolution into a Gaming Clan & Network

Azure Network as its being called at the moment, is growing with an all-new website and community features for playing together across Final Fantasy XIV and to Azure Skies beyond!
We rank high as one of the top FC's in Worldwide Activity on lodestone, and have for a long time. Most of our players are divided between the US East and West Coasts, members in East and West Canada, and a few outside the US or in EU or Aus zones. Because we do have an activity policy (mentioned below) we keep a standard flow of people, and have crowds in the early morning, late morning, early afternoon, afternoon, evening, and late night crowds.
Elitism isn't our style. Our community boasts a broad range of characters, great personalities, the proud, and also some silly goofs. But elitism isn't welcome, no matter how successful we are or how large we grow. We're always welcoming towards fresh faces interested in joining our guild, and the in-game activity ranges between 30-60+ online at once during prime time hours, sometimes around 70+ on patch days, and usually always with half the roster logging in throughout a 24 hour period, and around 15-30+ during the night.
Activity Policy
We ask that our members do not go missing without logging in for more than 60 days straight. If we hear word from someone or have some kind of decent excuse, we place our members on our On Vacation rank, which lasts presently until 90 days have passed. Exceptions are made for military deployments, hospital stays, financial issues, disability/health related issues, moving, or other reasons that might fall on a case-by-case basis.
All members not heard from in 60 days (roughly 2 months) or currently 90 days (roughly 3 months) are discharged. We allow 3 joins to Azure Infinitum in total, but exceptions can be made due to reasons listed above. If removed for inactivity, or you've left our FC for another reason and haven't already joined 3 times, you're always welcome back, but please remember, we are not a revolving door.
Keeping our roster full of members who have been online and presently play the game actively ensures an active environment for our players who play often. It also keeps our credits and clerical processes balanced across our network, and allows space for new faces to join our big happy in-game family of comrades.

2023.03.24 06:37 awesome-food_5085 Terangganu, Malaysia – Deep-Frying Seafood Goodness (at ‘Warung Pok Nong’)

Terangganu, Malaysia – Deep-Frying Seafood Goodness (at ‘Warung Pok Nong’)
Terangganu, Malaysia simply is probably the most enjoyable location you have yet to hear of (or maybe you do know about it, and that i apprehend why you want to preserve it a secret).
whether or not its the ever-breezy Terangganu air, or the concept of having a chef deep-fry a brimming choice of sea meals for you – Warung Pak Nong restaurant is a restaurant with some thing for anyone.

…and its in which we're going for lunch today!

excellent ocean views are only made better when you have a table full of seafood waiting for your arrival
the ocean perspectives ARE awesome, eating WHAT the ocean gives whilst DOING it's miles EVEN greater!
Its a ‘Win-Win’ with seaside and seashore food
Its quite lots a win-win state of affairs every time you discover your self taking part in a terrifi seashore view, even as expecting a banquet of seafood to arrive at your table.

paying attention to the sea spray at the same time as feeling the warm breeze, sitting in coloration whilst watching the waves is perfect – till a group of pals subsequent to you starts calling out for assist.

No issues nowadays even though, because the only hassle right here is, your buddies are calling you to assist them consume!**

With An Indoor Take-out Line
one of the matters that makes this Terangganu restaurant so a laugh, is how they prepare the restaurant to maximize both comfort and pace, whilst additionally retaining a cozy make-your self-at-domestic type vibe.

i will most effective suppose to call it a eating-in take-out line, and the manner you order here is just splendid.

Scroll down now and examine ‘the way to Order.’

Even on a weekday, Warung Pok Nong was full of families - now that's how you understand its true
tremendously Busy, And amusing
There are a few tables out inside the open air (on both facet of the eating place, parallel to the seashore front), however most of the tables are beneath the main roof building.

you will need to reserve both your beverages and your food your self, however they may assist you carry the food (which is ideal, because you’re going to want a variety of it).

There’s a line for liquids, and a separate line for food, and in case you’re following the main drift of factors (just look for the unmistakable line of smiling and hungry customers), then food is what comes first.

notice – a couple of Warnings
don't forget to usually ASK earlier than tagging your pals on Instagram, or they might get in trouble for cutting off work early on a Wednesday (we were fortunate to be in this example now not as soon as, however numerous times – and i can handiest say a large ‘thanks!’ Malaysians like to devour, and we have been only too fortunate to be there with these new friends nowadays).

note:** huge reminder right here, this area is certainly popular, i'm no longer kidding – although it was simplest after finishing off the primary 5 or so plates of seafood that it got here to our interest – this eating place typically needs reservations from the day before you need to visit!

Make your self aware of how to order, so you don't need to interrupt the cool atmostphere or float within the eating place
ITS A lovely thing TO WITNESS SUCH HUSTLE, but additionally relaxation, IN perfect concord
Terangganu Seafood strategy at Warung Pok Nong
Step 1: Seafood
‘Warung Pok Nong’ restaurant focuses on deep frying seafood, and there are pretty a massive wide variety of selections and styles for you to select from.

due to the straightforward ordering (each patron lining up in the front of the counter like school students) they keep the order line splendidly easy.

everything is deep frying, moving instantly from the fryer, to the dripper, to your plate, for your table, each plate comes with a small saucer of red sauce. watch for your turn in line, deliver your order of form of seafood, and how many plates, and subsequently point out to them the place in which you are sitting.

Get different updates
enter your electronic mail and i’ll send you the first-class travel food content.

Step 2: liquids
the subsequent component to do will be a drink order, but they have got separate places for ordering both blending drinks or water. The water (and coconut water) is to the right of the food ordering, while the liquids that take preparation (coffee, tea, 3-in-one sweet powders) are to your left.

Its no longer as complicated as it may sound, due to the fact you can virtually try and order liquids out of your table (timing it proper, simply whilst a server arrives with the meals). Its just that this restaurant may be so extraordinarily busy, its sometimes simply quicker to simply make the circulate your self.

The chef right here is working with masses of fish according to hour, deep frying every remaining one
Step 3: Seating
the quantity of seafood they fry here is wonderful, and it gained’t be long before your order will arrive.

in case you need to take a moment to witness the chef in movement, lightly stroll through the valuable door, and make your manner across the returned.

The cooks right here are so friendly, it turned into first-rate to see them chortle as we stared in awe, the sheer amount of oil, of seafood, and the large length of all of the frying pans – it's miles pretty a sight to see.

And of course, one so as to make you uncontrollably hungry right away.

move returned outside and attempt to find a table, and of direction for seating, and then for consuming, this step is always extra easy to do with pals.

hundreds of fish frying on the same time, it's going to make you uncontrollably hungry
the amount OF FRYING movement IS mind-BLOWING – each of those ARE complete OF FISH
Crispy and Crackling meeting Line
The sounds of nearly 10 massive deep-frying pans full of fish are without problems heard all of the way from the ordering line.

walking back into the kitchen is highly enjoyable but, and its clear to me from this lunchtime as a minimum, that human beings of Terangganu are very secure running with gigantic quantities of frying seafoods each day.

these two ladies are professionals at fast cleansing each squid earlier than the deep frying which comes subsequent
those younger women had been taking part in a threat to expose us how to properly easy every squid for frying.

One woman lightly removes the inside parts of a squid (along with the ink sack, which is normally stored), after which offers it a short rinse earlier than passing it down.

the second one lady then quickly but easily eliminates the squid’s outer layer of pores and skin with a knife, making small incisions earlier than putting off all of it by using hand as one shiny pink sheath.

Smaller squid will nonetheless have smooth skin, but with fats and extra mature squid like those, the outer skin may be difficult after frying.

4 mackerel to a plate, and i think we had 3 orders of this today at Pok Nong Seafood
The Lunch banquet begins with Fish
the primary of the fried fish are prepared, the first of numerous different plates that were on their way.

To quickly describe a bit about the mackerel, you may see why its just a perfect fish to deep fry.

The mackerel does have scales, and therefore it's far halal and safe for Muslims to consume, but the scales are so small that the skin is sort of velvety to touch – which offers no hassle at all to our enamel after those fish deep fry!

i am amazed at how light and golden the colour is of these fried, crispy, little fish, and there’s not anything like a display of fish like this to get the urge for food going.

specially else, that is just an exceedingly fun finger-food, and so simply after the instant they're cool sufficient to the touch, dig in on your first finger-ful of white, mackerel meat.

Crispy on the out of doors, bouncy and chewy on the inside, The squid here are super
Fried Squid
The squid here are a miniature epic of a journey of texture – I truely love each chunk of these.

Frying to quite a difficult, crispy outdoor, but so skinny, giving manner immediately to the bouncy, nicely chewy, thick chicken within. Take the scissors furnished, and reduce each piece yourself before ingesting.

Squid to me is more about the feel, but there may be a richness and fattiness there as well. Our squid sincerely came full of eggs, and these roe appearance beautiful as well, like a bit bowl of glass beads internal every squid.

Sauce on your heart’s delight
The deep frying may additionally go away them with a bit much less flavor on their own – so that you may also sooner or later need to grab a sauce to go with those bites as nicely.

The eating place has a dark sauce that includes the squid, it smells bitter and tastes barely sweet, and whilst I want it turned into a chunk greater highly spiced, it in reality goes top notch with these squid.

those plates of squid were long gone in a hurry, i was very grateful to see still many more plates of both fish, squid, and then shrimp, on their manner from the recent oil drip trays to our desk.

easy, deep fried, and scrumptious. The shrimp is a have to-order at Warung Pok Nong restaurant
pink AND GOLD, simply shades on this evidently scrumptious PLATE OF FRIED SHRIMP
Fried Shrimp
At closing, the plates of large shrimp arrive, the only dish I never can wait to strive (I received’t lie, I may also have burned a finger or , attaining in earlier than they even hit the table).

The shrimp here are large, they could best match six or seven to a whole dinner plate, and the small bits of crispy batter on top upload a pleasing of entirety for presentation.

The huge scales on the returned are simplest too smooth to peel off, and the beauty of each chew of shrimp meat is elegant. Crunch for your heart’s content, and cheers your pals to any other successful day entire (sure, despite the fact that its simplest lunchtime!).

it's miles a need to-order right here at Warung Pok Nong eating place, it's miles obligatory to finish off about one plate of these shrimp in keeping with person earlier than absolutely everyone can dare mention mind of a departure.

Piping warm squid, sparkling from the frying pans
THE FRIED SQUID IS PILING UP, just WATCH YOUR fingers while IT ARRIVES – it's miles warm!
The very last step earlier than each batch of seafood is prepared consists of a at the back of-the-scenes movement that I also want to proportion with you.

The chef cleans out each pan of a virtually unbelievably amount of crispy batter that falls off at some stage in the cooking. He swoops those all out, swishing through the oil with a large display screen tool, and movements maximum of the fried-to-a-crisp bits of batter into a collection urn at once at the back of him.

word: some bits to go on top of each plate, however most of the people is not used for meals, however goes to feed the households chickens that stay out behind the restaurant instead.

It made the experience all of the better nonetheless to see how, even at this sort of busy and popular searching eating place, there was nonetheless a completely ordinary and nearby circle of relatives lifestyles in movement. Their lives here are growing and taking place in conjunction with the restaurant’s boom as well, and it's miles great to see an instantaneous view of 1 local own family serving meals (and their happiness) to so many other families coming for a meal.

Ice cream and shaved ice, covered with candy and colorful syrup
DON’T neglect considered one of numerous DRINK OR DESSERT options here TO HAVE on the give up OF YOUR MEAL.
The restaurant experience
It is a great day, whenever you can both visit the beach, and keep down ratios of over a dozen objects of seafood in step with individual according to table. exceedingly, our large order this present day nonetheless did no longer include the total kind of seafoods (or cakes) to be had at Warung Pok Nong.

There are also massive crabs (frying shells and all), a few other styles of fish besides the squid, mackerel, and tuna in our order these days, and then deep frying fish balls and tofu which also appear to be favorites here as properly.

subsequently, you can word on almost every table inside the restaurant, a dessert order of this vivid, cooling, ice cream and shave ice combination.

I did not do this myself, but some human beings at our desk say that it's miles very sweet, clean, and an excellent finish to the more heavy seafood options in a meal right here.

add to their dipping sauce with your personal part of Tempoyak, the fermented durian local Malaysian delicacy that we assume youve been sporting to your pocket for the complete ride
BONUS in case you occur TO BE carrying TEMPOYAK for your POCKET… mix YOUR own DIP!**
Terangganu – the proper seaside surroundings
The seafood options right here are wonderful, however i would say that its the environment and place of this Terangganu restaurant that would keep me coming lower back.

I couldn’t believe a higher region to go for a mid-day meal with circle of relatives and friends, an interesting (the remarkable food) but laid-again region (the beachside seating), a high-quality example of Terangganu food and culture.

It surely reminds me of the last time we had a seafood ceremonial dinner within the sand, that point at the Arabian Sea near Karachi.

in case you are traveling Kuala Terangganu, make sure to check out a few of our different articles as nicely – here is a jaw-losing meal of neighborhood Terangganu-style breakfast at Nasi Dagang Atas Tol, and i would suggest following this by means of a lunchtime banquet at local favorite Aroma Kampong restaurant for fish, soups, and of direction, tempoyak.

notice*: Tempoyak isn't for sale here, but if you do occur to be carrying a few (like we had been, from the first time we noticed it available on the market, until the very last meal of the whole journey), then sense loose to feature a few dollops to your own small dipping box.

2023.03.24 06:19 Stumblebee Some reflections and questions about my first ever live poker experience

So I grew up watching the WSOP on ESPN and always wanted to play real life poker. I'm an adult now and suddenly realized that it's a thing I can actually do now. So I found a $60 buy-in tournament at my local casino and jumped right in after a couple days of watching some Daniel Negreanu tournament streams and researching ways to not be total ass (pre-flop ranges, keeping position in mind, etc)
Against all odds and despite my best efforts, I ended up making the final table (out of 30) and chopped a 4-way pot for 445!
Some notes, reflections, and questions;
1) playing with the poker chips is fun but not as fun as my inner child wanted it to be.
1a) how the shit do you do the little chip shuffle?? that feels like magic.
2) how the shit do you guys remember live hands to study? Soon as the cards leave my hand, they also leave my brain. The way some folks will perfectly recount hands, bets, raises, and the board astounds me.
3) literally the only hand I remember well: I folded AJo UTG but the board went XXAAA. Would have had Quad Aces, rip
4) I started to be unable to make clean antes after a while and didn't realize the dealer can make change with other antes, so I asked to exchange 1 1k chip for 10 100s. Got a weird look from the guy next to me and said nevermind lol. Realized pretty quickly that small denominations don't matter worth much later in the game.
5) Things were pretty damn nerve-wracking at the beginning, loosened up when I got used to the flow of the game, got sweaty when we were on the bubble, and then the mood got way more fun when we hit the cash. Is it like that every game?
6) I kept losing track of the button, posted big blinds as small blind multiple times, folded as the BB when I had the option
7) busting someone out of an event feels very weird. I knocked three people out, two on fairly bad beats. Don't think I could feel good doing that in a cash game where the money is their actual money without feeling pretty bad.
8) I feel like I'm aware of a pretty obvious tell when I bet. Very confident and quick bets when I have it, hims and haws when I don't. I think I was able to use that to my advantage to bluff a few hands.
9) speaking of, bluffing feels amazing when you pull it off.
10) Dealers and poker game directors are absolute fucking magicians with how quickly and confidently they have to resolve issues like burned cards, boxed cards, large chip counts, etc. Tonight gave me major, major appreciation for these people. Tip your dealers y'all.
11) this is the second time Tiktok has sent me down a rabbit hole and got me to step out of my comfort zone for something that looks fun to do. First golf, now poker.
12) y'all were pretty handy in getting me started too. The Poker Terms Glossary link has been broken for a few years now according to the way back machine (mods pls fix), but I do appreciate the conversation here since I legitimately think it helped me out in a few ways, specifically, tips on what to do/not to do when playing live for the first time.
13) I am still turbo dogshit at this game, but look forward to improving. That'll be a little hard to do though, because....
14) my states laws against online poker is wack as hell. I want to play micro-stakes and don't want to figure out VPNs and other stuff like that.
All-in-all, I had a great experience and will absolutely be back to play again!
Edit: bonus 15) I love peeling the corners of the cards and the sound they make when they hit the table. 😩😩😩

2023.03.24 06:16 Jayismybro I (24f) feel awkward and upset about my bf(28m) taking family photos

My bf and I have been together for a year. We both started off looking for something serious and we plan to get eventually get married after he finishes his masters.
Today was his sisters wedding. I feel like I was super involved with it. I helped his sister put her dress on (no one else was willing to help) I helped her with her hair and shaper wear, I made her bridal bouquet and table top flower arrangements, and made sure everything was how she wanted it for when she walked down the aisle (this included lighting all the candles, alerting the sound crew to turn on the song, scattering flower petals and dimming the lights). Her adult brothers were in charge of setting up the sound system, but when I went to tell them to turn on the music they didn’t have anything set up at all. They had been gaming all afternoon and forgot/ didn’t care. She ended up having to walk down the aisle in silence.
It was a small wedding so she had no maid of honor or bridesmaid, but I suppose I filled that role. I even made sure she had food and water when she needed/wanted it.
But later in the evening, my bf told me we should make our way back to the couple to talk and be with his family. Once we got there though, they arranged themselves to take pictures and left me standing awkwardly to the side. I was stuck near a wall so I all I could do was try and stay out of the frame. I was literally two feet away from them. They didn’t want me in any of the pictures. I quickly excused myself between photos and stayed in the back for a while. I feel pretty bad because this happens a lot. This even happened at my boyfriend’s graduation.
I mean I get it, I can see why they wouldn’t include me in photos because were not engaged or married, and it might ruin them if we break up. But I feel like I am also not exactly not part of the wedding either because I helped out a lot. Especially because her own family forgot about her literal wedding music.
I don’t know how to bring this up with my boyfriend without getting mad or crying. I’ve talked to him about his in the past but nothing ever changes.
Does anyone have any advice for how to approach this situation without seeming/being rude? Can anyone help me express my feelings without being hurtful?

2023.03.24 06:13 Physicist_Dinosaur You only need 32,000 g to get The Sentinus

General considerations

This is for Fable I.
The best way you can test it yourself is using Cheat Engine to change the gold to donate, instead of rising it up slooooow...lyyy... You can also use it to change the alignment, which I didn't but should have, as I ate 176 Crunchy chicks instead Dx.
I know for a fact that the alignment value we see isn't exactly the real one, because you can eat a few chicks or tofu without the scale visibly changing. That means, for Cheat Engine, this is a floating value. I calculated that:
5 ccEP 20 GAP,
where ccEP are Evil Points (EP from now) got from Crunchy chicks, and GAP is Good Alignment Points.
Sometimes they granted less than 20 GAP.
I tried different alignment levels and got the very different results we all now we can get. I had always Dark Platemail Suit and Dark Chain Mail Helmet, shirtless, with The Eyes of Skorm tattoo and every other dark alignment ones.

Experimental Design

I did a half-baked experimental design to get some insights. Halfway I realised I could have planned it better and write down everything.
Good points: GP from now on.
My hypothesis was that one shouldn't have to excede or gamble the amount of gold and it should be calculable with these two variables: alignment and gold amount. I'm pretty sure daytime is useless and I didn't test for alignment-changing clothes and tattoos, so I went tattooless and fully nude.
I tested it like 70 times with different variables, but the official experimental design was like this:
- I was at -100 or fully evil alignment. I forgot to eat more chicks after getting there, so it could have not being at exactly fully evil.
- I had no clothes or tatoos.
- I tried from 100 to 150,000 g. This is the treatment in experimental design jargon.
- I almost never repeated a gold amount, as they're apparently in a scale. This is the repetitions in the same jargon.


Apparently, the rewards system count the total GP obtained on a visit, so when a given GP amount are reached, any donation that makes the total GP excede a reward requirement, grants the highest reward possible. That means that if you already got the GP requirement but didn't get the associated reward, you can get it for 1 g. You only can get one reward at a time.
There are 5 different "thanks" categories. The first division is around 275, I didn't test it to the coin. The last one is from 31,999 to 32,000. The last one got me 1000 GP, granting me The Sentinus instantly, and giving 1 g two times more, granted me the age reduction and the title rewards with little as on two digits. The former one got me 600 GP. I don't remember getting any reward with 31,999 that one last test, but I remeber getting the title on the previous tests with a low gold amount (around idk, 10,000 I think), and the age reduction with around 22,000 perhaps, but I didn't register anything about it.
Any gold amount in an accumulated thanks level range got me the same non-GP rewards.
1000 GP is the maximum you can get, and the one that gets you The Sentinus at fully evil. Any gold above the minimum for getting 1000 GP goes to waste.
Non-GP rewards hierarchy are:
  1. The Sentinus at 1000 GP.
  2. The Age reduction. You can repeat until you randomly get 10 years. Unknown GP requirement.
  3. The Paladin Title. Unknown GP requirement.


The 5 "thanks" levels were unexpected, and could be used to calibrate the gold (and GP) equivalence and requirements between fully evil, fully good, and (specially) any mid-way alignments.
I suppose it could be pair-tested with two different alignments or more (treatments), and with the appropriate analysis method we can decide if we have significant results and that they can be used confidently.
With the Crunchy chick alignment change test I did while eating them, we could infer that even if we aproximate, we'll probably still need to round up the gold if grey alignment. Still, the first donation changes it although, if fully evil, that change can actually be precise.
The hypothesis is yet to be confirmed. More tests are required:
- With clothes, without tattoos.
- With tatoos, without clothes.
- With daytime, just to be 100% sure it doesn't matter.

Final notes

Well, we all now we can be rich a few hours into this game, but I think these tests are still useful. Specially for the newcomers, and we all want them to share our love.
I'm a biologist, and I usually use experimental design, but I don't have the time I'd like to to do it here. I'm not planning on doing the testing. If you want to do it, I can provide you the experimental design and guide you through the process. I can also provide anyone the cheat table (cheat engine), although it's super easy to learn how to do it.
Some folks say that they got to 15 years reduction. Can someone confirm this is possible?
For the newbies from the future: you can exploit the Hero save+Age reduction combo during The Archaeologist quest.
Clothes and tattoos are ignored while developing alignment based spells.
You can get a lot of chicks and tofu buying them everytime. It's easy to get alignment this way.
The alternative to all this is that one person who is more nerd than me and actually knows how to dive into the game files and get the formula.
I love you all :3

TL;DR: you only need 32,000 if fully evil. Then just donate 1g two times to get the two other rewards.
