The Fox and the Fry Bread

The Fox and the Fry Bread
Apalachicola Creek Animal Stories
from Pine Arbor Tribal Town Trickster Tales

Like ol' Rabbit and the wily Coyote, Mr. Fox was bad about tricking other animals whenever an opportunity slid into his lap.
Now and then, one of those other animals occasionally tricked that Fox.
This usually happened when hunger had a good hold on Mr. Fox.
Then, it was his stomach that ruled, not his brain.
In fact, we heard it like this . . .
long before Indians had corn.
One time ol' Mr. Fox happened upon Rabbit sitting on a little hill gazing quietly at a pool of water.
Being somewhat hungry and thinking his friend Rabbit
(did I say friend?) would make a pleasant little snack, Fox thought he should mosey over and check out the "vittles" situation.
"Whatcha doin' Rabbit?" asked Fox, all famished.
Of course, Fox thought to himself what a fool that Rabbit was . . . just sitting there in the open like that.
"I'm looking at that pool.
Isn't it beautiful?" Rabbit said to ol' bushy tail.
"Well, I don't see anything special about it," retorted Fox.
This Rabbit really is a flake, thought the Fox.
He deserves to be eaten and right now, too!
"Naturally, you can't see it yet but soon, tonight, there will be something very special about this pool," Rabbit replied.
"How can that be?" asked a curious Fox--curiosity does cloud one's thinking.
"Well now," Rabbit said, "just tuck up your tail and have a 'sit down' right here;
I'll tell you all about it.
You know how those Creek women gather acorns each year and make some really good sweet acorn flour--now don't you?"
"Yeah, I've spied upon'em many a time when they go agathering," Fox added.
"Then surely you know those Indian women make the world's best golden yellow acorn bread.
They get that acorn flour all ready, sweeten it with wild honey, flatten it out and cook it in succulent bear fat," said Rabbit.
"Hush, furry, you're making me mighty hungry," spoke the red haired Fox.
Rabbit continued--
"That bread is the reason tonight is special.
You see, all the women got together today and made a very special piece of golden yellow acorn bread--oh, it's so-o-o bi-i-i-i-g! It's an offering, a gift for One Above, the Creator.
They're thanking Creator for all the good things Creator has provided everyone--and, they're going to put it in One Above's favorite pool tonight.
I heard them talking about it when I was hiding in the garden eating their beans."
"Rabbit, you're not only furry but downright stupid, too, if you expect me to believe that," ol' Mr. Fox answered.
"No, wait, you'll see," Rabbit replied.
Just then, the sun went down and night fell quickly.
The two sat quietly for a while.
Rabbit was contemplating the genius of his own story while that starving Fox was deciding how best to eat his friend, Rabbit. (Did I say friend, again?)
Suddenly, Fox was astonished to see something that looked just like a huge piece of golden yellow acorn bread slide into the pool of water.
He was amazed!
"Well I'll be--why I never--" The sight of that delicious looking bread--the mere sight of it, nearly caused Fox to faint from hunger.
It was the biggest piece of bread in the whole world!
"How can we get it?" yelped the ol' Fox.
"Ah, that is a sacred gift--you don't want to eat that," answered Rabbit.
"Why, I'm so hungry I could eat a whole bear--fur and all." volunteered a famished Fox.
"Don't be greedy, silly Fox," spoke Rabbit.
"Creator might send you trouble instead of bread if you bother that."
However, Fox insisted he must have that bread, no matter what.
Rabbit got up and took Fox to the pool's edge.
My, that was one large piece of bread! Fox could see it clearly on the other side.
"If you insist," Rabbit continued, "I'll tell you how to get it.
Just start drinking--it's a small pool, and you'll draw it over to you--just like that!"
Then, Rabbit just sat back watching as Fox began lapping the water furiously.
It was all Rabbit could do not to burst out laughing.
Fox drank and drank and drank . . . and then drank some more.
Finally, the pool shrunk to a very small puddle--Fox's belly grew to an enormous size.
Mr. Fox raised his head, bared his teeth to bite the bread and--
Just then, Rabbit tossed a stone into the remaining puddle; the golden yellow acorn bread turned into ripples and rings of light!
Suddenly, Fox realized that he had been tricked by Rabbit and his own hunger into thinking the reflection of the moon was fried golden yellow acorn bread.
Old Mr. Fox tried to chase Rabbit but his full belly of water kept him firmly anchored in place.
Rabbit merely skipped off a short distance away, sat down and commenced to laugh and laugh . . . then laughed some more.
"If you were not so greedy," said Rabbit, "you would not be in such a predicament now!
And, as you were warned, you must suffer for trying to steal One Above's fry bread."
Rabbit laughed and laughed the night away while a bloated and miserable Fox whimpered and moaned 'til dawn.
Ever since then (and out of sympathy for their cousin, the Fox), the whole Canine Nation, all dogs, coyotes and wolves howl at each full moon.
I wonder why?

2023.06.02 01:08 LithiumFlowerr About spending time with your SO

I (f26) started dating my current boyfriend(m28) 5 months ago. The last 2 months I've been spending half of the week with him at his place (mine is too small). But now I would like to keep our relationship but I want also to slowly get back a bit into some of my old habits.
I used to work at his place on Fridays but I can't keep doing that on a regular basis because I'm less productive there.
In my country shops close after 8pm and on Sundays. During weekdays I finish work late so Saturday is pretty much the only day I can use to shop for food, clothes etc. So I want to do some of that stuff on Saturdays. I would like to use 2 fridays or saturdays a month to see my friends or even just stay alone at home.
As usual, last weekend my boyfriend asked me if I wanted to spend this weekend with him and I said yes.
Today, I told him I would also like to go for a bike ride because the weather is going to be nice and shop for clothes and on top of that, I have to go as usual to a language class - total of 2h. To which he replied that I'm only thinking about my schedule and I am not taking him into account. That I shouldn't expect him to be free whenever I am done with all I have to do. Which I guess makes sense... and it wasn't my intention to make him feel that way.
The thing is, we didn't have any plans and we rarely have any. On top of that, his father moved in with him and it looks like he doesn't want to leave him alone for more than 2h, so apart from having food, sex and chilling inbetween, I don't think we will be up to much. Maybe we will go for a drink (which is nice) and that's it. Summer is short here, and even though I do like to spend time with him, I want/have to do more than just that.

So I guess that I have no other choice than to reduce by a lot the time I spend with him so that next time he asks me if I want to spend the weekend with him, I only give 1 evening, sometimes 2. It's a slippery slope. I'm afraid he's going to be upset or hurt or think that I've lost interest.
What do you think? What would you recommend? Or how would you explain/introduce some more time for yourself in a relationship without hurting the other person.
TL;DR! - How to introduce more "me-time" into a relationship?

2023.06.02 01:08 No_Brief_124 Well... I finally got around to doing cool stuff.

I've been struggling with things lately. The straw that broke the camels back was watching my father watch "surviving abuse in a narcissistic relationship" Keep in mind 2 years ago I was dodging right hooks. The AA "fellowship" is continuing to talk down to me. I'll admit I get a sense of satisfaction knowing one of the up and comers has already relapsed and is carting people that just got out of rehab around. I tried to talk to him, but it went no where. Physically, I am in a lot of pain, usually about a 3 -4 24/7. I have begun doing yoga more frequently to help.

I about went insane being on a rest week. I finally got to work out and it was a shit show. I was just moving things around. Not really any form. I had been waiting on the job offer and started to have my doubts and maybe I didn't knock it out of the park, like I thought. I had been on 3rd shift for the past 6 days and trying to fit exercise, 3rd shift, and then day to day annoyances, and facture in the "I'm a survivor" attitude. I am just done. I went into a gas station and told them I'd start working Monday and to send and offer letter and THEY DID. Matched with someone I knew in addiction and they are sober the same time as me. Kinda sucks because I plan on moving and I just don't know if I can handle any of that. Did my first shift today, then I just left for Land Between the Lands with my dog. I spent about 4 hours out there with her. I'm editing the stuff, but when I got back... I got the job offer! They told me that I just need to tell them when I am moved and set up and I'll start the next day. So tits! Full gov Benefits in like 90 days. I am still going to be like 1600$ short from comfortably moving. Even with the second job. I am thinking, I can sell my washer and dryer, since I won't need it. 1300$ is doable. I'll just keep the second job and transfer for to the gas station down in Nashville and work that for the first two months I am there.. It'll even out.

Anyway, I am editing the stuff.. There is a lot of Elsa vision in there.

2023.06.02 01:08 jyphil Complicated mortgage mess.. help?

FTHB last summer. Got 30 year variable closed mortgage with RBC. As all variable rate owners know it's been nothing short of tight.
Yesterday (Wed) read on Reddit RBC was raising rates the next day (i.e. today Thu). I called RBC yesterday to switch to a 5 yr fixed and worked out an early renewal agreement set for Jun 21 (so I have time to put in a lump sum principal payment and lower my monthly mortgage payment based on the outstanding mortgage being lowered by said lump sum payment).
As I reviewed yesterday with the RBC person I realized they had 330 months for Original Amortization (i.e. 27.5 years) instead of 360 months (30 years). I put it aside for the moment cus I needed my early renewal agreement processed that day in order to hold the fixed rate that would increase the next day.
I'm on the phone again with RBC and they see 330 months on their side, but I have the original letter stating 30 years so they will send for investigation. ihave a feeling it was a typo but can't confirm until investigation.
Soo... 2 problems. (a) my payments the past year was based on incorrect shorter amortization, what do I do? I'm going to ask for a thorough recalculation and associated principal payments against my interest payments if this was errored. (B) I'm in process of getting the early renewal agreement based on an agreed outstanding mortgage amount set for Jun 21, which would include a lump sum payment withdrawn that day Jun 21 to reach that outstanding mortgage amount... Issue being I have problem (a) compounding the messiness of how much my mortgage should be.
Lol.... Fun being a home owner.... Saved and invested diligently (no help from parents) and here I am..

2023.06.02 01:07 MelonThug A Guide to HI3 for HSR players

I'm not sure if this kind of post is allowed here, since it technically doesn't pertain to Honkai Star Rail, but is more-so targeted towards those players, so remove if necessary. Over the past few weeks I've seen a lot of players from HSR coming over to the various HI3 subreddits and asking various, but generally similar questions. I'm not sure if this has been done before, but I thought I'd make a post with all the information you need to know if you're a HSR player interested in HI3.
There are 3 main reasons I've seen for why HSR players are interested in HI3.
  1. You want to learn more about Welt and his past/power.
  2. You want to learn about the parallels between the characters in HI3 and HSR(Bronya, Seele, etc)
  3. You are interested in HI3, the game itself.
I will provide resources for each of these reasons.

1) You're interested in Welt

Welt is quite the character. He is the only character(that we've seen in-game so far) in HSR that is directly from HI3. As in, they are the same person. There is a lot to him but you won't find much information about him in HSR. There are 2 main HI3 manga which heavily feature Welt:
  1. Alien Space (17 Chapters) This manga serves as the bridge between HI3 and HSR, showing why Welt and Void Archives travelled there in the first place. You'll also get to see some of the backstory of HI3's Himeko, and her little adventure with Welt. Even with no knowledge of anything HI3, you should be able to understand this manga fairly well and enjoy it.
  2. Second Eruption (66 chapters) This manga features Welt in his prime, during the war between humanity and the Herrscher of the Void during the 2nd Eruption. Welt uses his powers to the best of his ability here, and if you recognize the line "I am Welt of Humanity!...", yeah, that's here. Do note however, this manga will be very difficult to understand without any knowledge of HI3. If you just want to see Welt doing cool stuff, then by all means go ahead and read, but just be prepared to be confused. This is the best HI3 manga in the eyes of most, and also the longest by far, so maybe it might get you interested in HI3's story, for which, you can check the next the section.
Additionally, this post does a fantastic job of summarizing Welt's journey.
There is more to Welt, but this is all you'll get without playing the game.

2) You're interested in the characters/story

If you're interested in what the HSR characters are like in HI3, you'll have to go through HI3's story. But you don't actually have to be playing the game to do so! For the first 6 chapters, you can easily finish them with just the starter characters, and after that, the game will give you trial characters to use for every story chapter. So you can just login whenever you want to do story and not have to worry about actively playing the game.
The story is very highly praised by the community, but it's definitely not easy to get into. In order to get the full experience, you'll have to be jumping between different forms of media, as it is a multimedia story. There are the in-game chapters, several manga, 3 visual novels, anime(yes actual anime), and some amazing YouTube animations. The story is very long, and it will take some effort to go through. But it's definitely worth it. Hoyostans has put together an amazing story guide that you can follow, with everything linked right in the guide so you don't have to be searching for things yourself. Here is the guide
Do note that the early stuff(about the first half of Phase 1 in that guide) is pretty bad in comparison to what comes later, so don't let that discourage you from moving on. The story jumps in quality after chapter 7 and will keep getting better from there. (Ofc, this is an opinion)

3) You're interested in the game

Now if I were to talk about every aspect of the game in detail, this post would be like 10x longer. So I'll try to keep it short(I failed lol). I will also be making some comparisons to HSR and by extension Genshin(yes yes I know...) since this post is mainly targeted towards those players.
HI3 is difficult. As a F2P new player, it will definitely take you a long time to catch up. Powercreep is very present in this game, and characters get replaced fast(within 1 year even). But once your account gets the ball rolling(As in you get 3 teams fairly well built) things get alot easier and you''ll be able to keep up. The endgame starts post level 80, and you will get to level 80 very quickly with the amount of EXP you'll be flooded with. Luckily at level 80 its optional to breakthrough to higher levels and "enter the endgame". So you can remain at level 80 until you feel comfortable with your account to breakthrough.
Team and character building In terms of team building, you don't have much diversity. The teams are pretty much set in stone and there isn't much room for experimentation. "This character only does this and must go on this type of team and is pretty useless elsewhere" is the case for the majority of characters. Of course you can still mix and match but the ideal teams will always be the same. Characters however have alot to them, not just 3 moves. Like, alot. For example, there's a character with 4 different weapons and different movesets for each. (Yatta!).
In terms of character building, unlike Genshin and HSR, we don't technically have 5* gear. Signature gear is actually 4 star. You know the guaranteed 4 star every 10 pulls? You got a pretty good chance of pulling a character's signature gear from that. Unfortunately, every DPS needs their signature weapon. There isn't really any F2P alternatives that can come close to the signature for the majority of DPS, so you'll have to pull it. Supports have some more leeway with weapons but some still require their signature to work.
Artifacts/Relics Unlike Genshin and HSR, we don't have artifacts/relics. We have stigmata(stigma for short). Each character can be slotted with 3 stigma, with 2 piece and 3 piece set bonuses. You have to pull stigma and all signature stigma is 4 star. Therefore on your 10 pull 4* pity, you might either get a stigma or a weapon. Luckily stigma is not as mandatory as weapons, and there is a lot of craftable stigma that can substitute for signature.
Banners There is no 50/50 on character banner. Same 90 hard pity, 75 soft pity. Equipment banners have 5 stigma sets and 5 weapons in the pool, with 1 stigma set and the corresponding weapon rate up. Which means your 4* can be 20 different things, and if you only want 1 specific thing, yeah its tough, but there's a chance you might end up fully gearing another character by complete accident because of this. We also usually know the schedule for the next patch and maybe even the following patch, with all the banner details and events, so it's easy to plan your spending.
Events Honkai has events very often, and they are quite fun and sometimes "inspired" from other games. We essentially had a Fall Guys event, a Plants vs Zombies event, a somewhat Pokemon event and others. Event dialogue is usually pretty humorous and light hearted, and are pretty fun to read through.
End Game Activities There is alot to do in endgame.
Superstring Dimension AKA Abyss Every abyss cycle, you get grouped with a certain number of players, and you compete for score on a leaderboard tied to your group. Depending on your placement, you will earn trophies and either move to higher abyss levels, stay where you are, or move down, with different rewards for each level. Therefore HI3 can be said to be a competitive game. Every 3 days we get a new abyss cycle (not as long as Memory of Chaos or Spiral Abyss of course) and hence rewards.
Memorial Arena Every week, there are 3 bosses which players can compete for score on a global leaderboard(tied to your server like NA, SEA etc). This gives you the opportunity to use your various teams every week as each boss has their own weaknesses. Your score determines your rewards(not relative to other people's score) and your ranking affects some rewards as well but that one isn't really a big deal.
Elysian Realm This is HI3's equivalent of Simulated Universe, with some slightly different mechanics. This technically isn't an endgame activity, but getting higher scores will require you to have good gear. Its a weekly thing with good rewards, and the way characters play in Elysian Realm is fundamentally different from the regular game, since they might get new abilities specific to each character.
Raids Honkai has Co-op. Every week you can team up with 2 other players to go through 6 stages for rewards. To be very honest, Co-op is pretty meh. You'll be able to matchmake with other people easily but alot of people kinda just ignore this.
Oh, and we also have a customizable housing system with Chibi characters, and a global chat where people talk about all kinds of usually crazy stuff(looking at room 1). These are the real endgame activities 馃憤.
That's the main content besides the dailies, which you can finish with just a few mouse clicks. You will find lots of useful resources in the pinned post on the houkai3rd subreddit, so be sure to read through it if you get into the game.
Thank you for reading! I hope this information will be of use to anyone interested in HI3, and if you have any other things you may want to know, please leave a comment and I will answer if it's within my ability.

2023.06.02 01:06 Iwantaprilstits Return to work on a part time or limited basis

So I've been on short term disability and having somewhat of a relief on my symptoms by making huge lifestyle adjustments, and taking 3 different new medications. Though I've tried different interventions before and sometimes my symptoms return. I think I may be on to something this time though. I've been feeling about 80% for about 12 days. I feel like I may be able to work for a bit but definitely not at the volume I was pre-covid. The main question is though, would it be worth it to I ask my employer if I have the option of such an arrangement? The reason I'm worried about is if I tell them at any point in time that I'm feeling better, they will take that as admission that I am no longer disabled and ready to return to full time work just like before. Which I'm not. At the same time, I'm not completely disabled either. Still worried they might latch on to that and take away my disability. What would you do? Anyone had a similar situation?

2023.06.02 01:05 tombah99 It would have been 8 years in October

Over Memorial Day weekend, I caught my (27M) girlfriend (28F) cheating on me. I have a lot on my mind so this is going to be a long one... apologies in advance. I want to talk about the night it all went down, the days since, and life going forward.
I have been with my (likely soon to be ex) girlfriend for nearly 8 years. We met in college at a party and never looked back. Our relationship was never the most exciting or passionate, but we loved each other.
I will be the first to admit I was not a perfect partner. I struggled with alcohol and we both smoked a fair bit of marijuana through college and our early 20s. I also struggled greatly with depression and anxiety. Despite these issues, I always held down a job and paid the bills. We also rarely fought.
I have made great strides in my life to put these issues behind me. I am completely sober and have worked very hard to become the best future husband and father I can be for our family.
Over the years we built a life together. We both graduated college, moved to the big city, and began our careers. We have 2 dogs (luckily no kids) and live in a nice house in a nice suburb that we split rent on. Our lives are integrated. She is a part of my family and I am a part of hers. We have lived together for years and have shared expenses.
We are not engaged yet but I have had a ring for several months now. I had not proposed because I felt there were cracks in our relationship that I wanted to work on before taking that next step. I had tried to have conversations about these issues but was never met with any meaningful dialogue or action.
I think the story of my D-day actually start a couple weeks before it actually happened. One day before work, I had asked my GF (I'll call her J) if she could please clean her dishes in the sink and clean up her pile of laundry in the bathroom. No demands or anything, just "please, I'd appreciate it". J blew up at me. "Do you know how long you were a mess and I put up with it??". I was hurt but at this point I needed to leave for work so I said we need to talk later and headed out the door. I gathered my thoughts during the day and came home a little early from work. We sat down and I laid out the following points:
1. Please stop using the past against me. I know I wasn't perfect but I've worked very hard to become a better person. I cannot be in a relationship where my partner will hold my darkest days over my head to win an argument.
2. J works the nightshift and I have struggled with this in the past. We don't see each other very often as our schedules are completely opposite. She was open to changing to the day shift in the past but recently has hardened her stance. Recently, she has been sleeping a LOT on her days off. I understand nightshift is brutal on one's sleep schedule but it was getting to the point where she would only be awake 4-6 hours on her days off. These few hours she was awake she would lay on the couch and watch TV. It made having a relationship difficult, and it also meant her share of house duties was falling behind (leaving her dishes in the sink, her clothes all over the place, etc).
3. Sex. Our sex life has never been great. I have been open about my desire to improve things, have worked on myself to be an attractive partner, and have tried to discuss her wants and needs as well. There was never any progress.
During this conversation, I asked for her thoughts and feelings on each topic. I desperately wanted an actual dialogue but she was giving me nothing. Ultimately, she said she needed time to think about what I said. Since the conversation, I had not seen her hardly seen her at all. She had been gone almost a week on a hiking trip with some co-workers that had been planned for a while. Then because of work there was another week of not really seeing each other.
Friday night, J asks if I want to go to a birthday dinner for a family friend on Saturday. I had plans that required me to be up early on Sunday, so I said probably not as I knew she would want to stay and hang out late with them. She swore she would not as she had work on Sunday. I only half believed her, but agreed to go because I knew it'd make her happy.
Towards the end of dinner I go to the restroom and when I come back, what always happens happened. "Would you be ok if I actually went out? I won't be out much later" She asked in front of the entire group so I said "sure, you can do what you want" A few minutes later off to the side, I let her know I was upset that she went back on her word but she was un-phased. She promised she wouldn't be out very late and I believed her as the group was primarily mid-30s people with young kids. One of the other people at the birthday dinner assured me they would give her a ride home.
I drove home alone and the anger built. I typed out a long text about how I was hurt that she didn't come home with me like she said she would, but ultimately deleted it before sending. I didn't want to needlessly make her night worse and told myself we would talk in the morning. I go to bed.
2AM I wake up to go pee. She isn't there. I check my phone and she hasn't texted me at all either. We share locations with each other so I check and it's not loading so I am getting a bit worried for her safety at this point.
I call her and she picks up "Hello?" "Hey J where are you??" "Oh I decided to sleep over at family friend's house" This alone wasn't concerning as the family friends were a married couple with young children. We have known them for years and it was not unusual for her to spend the night there after going out with them.
At this point my concern quickly turns back to anger because not only did she lie to me again about coming home early, she didn't even text me to let me know her plans changed. I told J to get an Uber and come home, we need to talk. She was annoyed and let me know it but I didn't care. She told me she would order an Uber.
Nearly 30 minutes had passed and I had not heard from her. I check her location again to see if she's on her way. Unlike before, it does load this time. Not only was she not on the way back, she was at a house I didn't recognize. I call her back "Hey I thought you said you were ordering an Uber and coming home? Also where are you? Your location is showing you at some house I've never seen".
She sticks to her story. She is at family friend's. She has no idea why her location is showing the other house, because she is definitely at family friend's. I'm uneasy at this point but still haven't jumped to any conclusions. Maybe it was a glitch. Seemed to be pretty far away from where she was claiming to be for a glitch and it also hadn't moved at all in a while... but whatever, anything is possible I suppose.
I am asking her why she keeps lying to me. Lied about not going out in the first place, lied about how long she'd be gone, and lied about calling an Uber 30 minutes ago. She says the Uber is coming in 4 minutes and that she will call me when it picks her up because she doesn't want to argue with me in front of family friends.
I watch her location, expecting it to jump and correct itself once she starts moving. Instead, it moves exactly as if she was picked up in an Uber from that house. Whatever, she is on her way.
I go downstairs and wait for her to arrive. Once she does I ask what she did tonight. "I went to the bar and then to family friends". I ask her what she was doing at family friends. "Just talking. You know I stay there sometimes what's the big deal?". I ask what on earth they were talking until 2:30 in the morning. It just didn't make sense, they're a mid-30s married couple with young kids and full time jobs. Staying awake this late just to talk?
"Well we were talking about you for one" "Me? What about me" "For starters your psychotic behavior tonight."
I was mad sure but my behavior had been far from "psychotic". I never raised my voice and never accused her of anything. I demanded she come home sure but I felt I was justified in that.
From here she continues to say they talked about the discussion from 2 weeks ago. How I "attacked her" and "piled on her for no reason". I was shocked. I thought I had handled that conversation a couple weeks ago very maturely. I was actually proud of myself for taking time to gather my thoughts so that I could calmly lay them out when I got home. At this point however, I was questioning myself.
Did I dog pile her for no reason? Was the way I approached it an "attack"? My only thought was maybe it felt one sided because she refused to engage in any discussion. I asked why she could talk to other people about our relationship but not me.
It would never become clear however as she said she was done talking and was going to bed. I begged her to give me something, anything. I didn't care if her response was in the form of yelling at me. I just needed SOMETHING.
As she's walking up the stairs I ask her to explain why her location was at that house. The story was the same. She didn't know, she was at family friends house. I told her I want to believe her but I know what I saw with my own eyes. It just didn't make sense. I would have believed anything that plausibly put her at that house. "I was at family friends and that's that. If you don't believe me, the we have MUCH bigger problems"
That was that. I did trust her and so I accepted it and went up to join her in bed. There was a little voice in the back of my mind that knew what I saw but she wouldn't lie, she definitely wouldn't cheat.
As I am about to fall asleep, I sit up suddenly and say "J I have an idea" *half asleep* "what?" "Show me your Uber receipts. That will prove you're telling the truth, any small doubts I have will be gone and we can just move on from this. Now she seems to be completely asleep (almost certainly faking it looking back). I grab her phone from under her pillow and unlock it.
On the screen is a text thread to a guy I'll call Jake. There were only 2 messages. First from earlier in the evening "It's J". The kind of message you send when someone puts their number in your phone and you text them so they have your number now. Then one she forgot to send "Hey sorry about that... I made it home ok".
Even at this point, my na茂ve ass did not jump to cheating. I truly assumed it was probably someone who was also at the dinner and stayed the night at family friends. But then I saw the Uber receipt. It had picked her up from the house her location showed her at.
"It's what it looks like"
I asked how could she do this to me? Why would she do this to me? Nothing. Not a single sentence that could be considered a thoughtful response. Despite my demands to know what happened that night, she, as usual, gave me nothing. "It's over. You threw away an 8 year relationship. We were supposed to be together forever. You were supposed to be the mother of my children." Only after those words "It's over" did she show any remorse.
The very little information I did get out of her was:
-This was the first time
-I caught her before anything actually happened
I'm not sure I believe either. It also doesn't really matter to me. Interestingly, about a month prior she told me she had HPV. She assured me that monogamous people can get it. Based on the research I did, it seemed possible, so I didn't think much of it. Now I wonder...
The next few hours were an unproductive loop of various iterations of "How could you" and "I'm sorry I'll do anything to make it up".
Eventually it was 6am and I still had those plans that brought me home early the night before. A 7am tee time. So I left.
It was actually a blessing but I had already had pretty much a full day of plans with some friends. First was golf, then some time at the shooting range with another friend who was going to show me the ropes. These are close friends and I told them everything. They listened to me ramble all day and spent as much time as I needed.
Once I knew J had left for work, I decided it was time to go back home. I had been up since 2am and I was exhausted. I don't fall asleep until midnight. Awake for about 22 hours on the worst day of my life.
The Aftermath:
Honestly... not much happened after. I hurt. It is a deep, constant ache. It was not overwhelming pain like hearing a family member had died. No... just a constant, deep, ache.
I reached out to some more friends who have all been incredibly supportive. I am truly blessed to have the support system I do.
The people I really want to talk to, but haven't had the courage to call yet are my parents. I can't explain why, but I feel almost embarrassed. I also know that once I tell them, the relationship is 100% over with J. They will never see her the same, and she'll know it. I can't live with that tension my whole life.
While I am 99.9% sure this relationship is over, it's hard to say 100%. She was in my life for 8 years. It means a fundamental change to my life presently, and the entire future I had planned.
Work has been hard. I haven't gotten a lot done this week. I've been distracting myself by talking to my co-workers. Today though... I was the only one in the office. Seems everyone else happened to be working from home.
It was not a good day. I have been in my head replaying the events of the weekend and spiraling. Until this point I was weirdly ok. I think it's the first time I've been alone since it happened so all the feelings are coming out.
Going Forward:
I'm not sure what the future holds. I have a few short term plans:
1. STD test
2. Therapy
3. Talk to my parents and likely make a trip home
I also need to talk to J. While I repeatedly said it was over the night it all went down, I think it still needs to be made official. I have not seen J since that night. After work Sunday and Monday night, she has been home. I don't think she's left the house. However, I've been spending as much time away as possible and the little bit I am home, she is in the guest bedroom. I have not had the strength or desire to talk to her.
What I'm most scared of it my living situation and the dogs. While one dog is clearly mine and one is clearly hers, there's a part of me that worries she may do something crazy. I don't know what she's capable of anymore.
We are locked into this lease until February. I have re-read the lease and it seems were pretty much stuck. She has family in town she could stay with but I've got nowhere to go. While it wouldn't ruin me, it would certainly be financially painful if she stopped paying her half of the rent. Best case scenario seems to be we live as roommates and stay out of each other's way for 8 months... A pretty bleak best case scenario.
Once we do separate, there's going to be the challenge of divvying up the stuff. We own a lot of nice furniture together. That furniture probably wouldn't fit well into the apartments we'll likely have to move back into after this. It's all just so unclear at this point.
If you've made it this far, thank you for listening. Just writing this was very cathartic. I am open to hearing advice on how I should proceed. Nothing in my life has prepared me for something like this.

2023.06.02 01:04 Dan-knee_DeVito How do you get over teaching guilt?

This is my first year, and I know I鈥檝e done a good job. I鈥檝e got strong relationships with my students, parents have called the principal to compliment me, I鈥檝e been recognized by my admin in the school newsletter several times, and out of the entire math department I had the highest percentage of students pass their standardized test.
To be clear, I have been worked to the bone since August. I鈥檓 also not a licensed teacher, and I鈥檓 what my county calls a board substitute (not sure if it鈥檚 the same verbiage for others). This means that I get paid about half as much as licensed teachers, but I am still the teacher on record. I was never treated/expected to act as just a board substitute until recently when I was denied a teaching contract after I was promised one once I passed the PRAXIS. There鈥檚 a lot more to it, but essentially I was told by HR to stop doing any work outside of contract hours unless I鈥檓 receiving additional pay.
All this to say, I stopped offering tutoring outside of contract hours. I also stopped recording videos of the notes we did in class. I used to offer tutoring from 7am-9am every day, and hold after-school review sessions about once a week. I never had to do these things to begin with, but I teach at a title 1 school and my student鈥檚 math knowledge is seriously lacking.
Today, I found out that a student who I have only seen twice this quarter complained to some admin (I think) saying that I refused to help them and their failing grade is on me. Long story short, admin took their side and still hasn鈥檛 talked to me about it. They鈥檙e letting the student skip my class, admin told the student they鈥檒l handle it and make sure they pass for the year, and all communication between me and them is now through their counseloadmin. I only know this because another student told me. Again- I still have not been spoken to about this.
I think I know what instance the student is referring to, and I think it鈥檚 because I said I could not tutor them outside of school and told them that they need to start coming to class more. I just feel so fucking bad about it now. Me and this student used to have a strong relationship. I feel like teaching gives you the extreme of every emotion, and right now I just feel so guilty. I feel like I should have done more, and I should have worked those extra hours with them. I鈥檓 the only teacher they鈥檝e done this too, even though they鈥檙e failing every class, and I鈥檓 so confused and hurt. We鈥檝e never had a problem, and I鈥檓 just so confused right now. I鈥檓 also confused as to why no one has talked to me about this? Is this normal? I would like to know if this is how the education field is, because if so, I鈥檒l need to start looking for a different career.

2023.06.02 01:03 Snekzarecool I don鈥檛 know what to label myself, but I don鈥檛 think I鈥檓 straight

Throughout my entire life, I鈥檝e struggled with both romantic and sexual attraction. The problem is I鈥檝e only ever felt romantic attraction twice and it was only for a short period of time.
The first time was in kindergarten and the second time was in 2020 when I was losing myself and sense of reality. In 2020, I was going through a really tough time and I think I only felt this 鈥渃rush鈥 because I really needed validation from someone.
In kindergarten, I had all of the typical crush feelings like butterflies, nervousness, and things like that. But I haven鈥檛 felt that way since. It even got to a point where I faked having a crush on people just to feel like I wasn鈥檛 weird and to feel normal.
There鈥檚 plenty of people I find attractive but I have no romantic or sexual attraction towards any of them. I鈥檓 in high school so I feel like it鈥檚 too late to discover myself. I usually only say I鈥檓 queer or omnisexual but honestly, I don鈥檛 know. Most people I find attractive are females and the one person I 鈥渄ated鈥 in 2020 was nonbinary.
This is all really confusing and I need to know if anyone has felt anything similar. I want to know who I am. Am I aroace? Am I queer? Am I part of the LGBTQ+ community?

2023.06.02 01:02 jyphil Complicated mortgage mess, help?

FTHB last summer. Got 30 year variable closed mortgage with RBC. As all variable rate owners know it's been nothing short of tight.
Yesterday (Wed) read on Reddit RBC was raising rates the next day (i.e. today Thu). I called RBC yesterday to switch to a 5 yr fixed and worked out an early renewal agreement set for Jun 21 (so I have time to put in a lump sum principal payment and lower my monthly mortgage payment based on the outstanding mortgage being lowered by said lump sum payment).
As I reviewed yesterday with the RBC person I realized they had 330 months for Original Amortization (i.e. 27.5 years) instead of 360 months (30 years). I put it aside for the moment cus I needed my early renewal agreement processed that day in order to hold the fixed rate that would increase the next day.
I'm on the phone again with RBC and they see 330 months on their side, but I have the original letter stating 30 years so I'm on hold as they investigate. I have a feeling it was a typo.
Soo... 2 problems. (a) my payments the past year was based on incorrect shorter amortization, what do I do? I'm going to ask for a thorough recalculation and associated principal payments against my interest payments if this was errored. (B) I'm in process of getting the early renewal agreement based on an agreed outstanding mortgage amount set for Jun 21, which would include a lump sum payment withdrawn that day Jun 21 to reach that outstanding mortgage amount... Issue being I have problem (a) compounding the messiness of how much my mortgage should be.
Lol.... Fun being a home owner.... Saved and invested diligently (no help from parents) and here I am..

Yes, Johnny has short hair. The latest update messed with hair texture (at least on my PC) and now the poor man looks like his hair is thinning and balding. If anyone knows how to fix it, I'd be grateful 馃檹馃徎
Anyway, here are some of my favorite outfits, some Johnny & V moments and a cameo from Baby
(Dad's on a hunting trip, and he hasn't been home in a few days)

2023.06.02 01:01 Ponchojo How long does my dad have left?

My dad was a super healthy 75 year old who lived alone and went to the gym three times a week, then a year ago he started having falls and shortness of breath and was diagnosed with with cardiac amyloidosis. His appetite went away over the last 6 months or so and he went from 240lb to 140lb (he's 6 foot 3). In the last two weeks his situation really took a nosedive.
There was a lot of confusion and his doctor gave us a urine test to administer at home. When I sent her a pic of the dipstick she diagnosed cystitis and sent two doses (two day course) of fosfomycin. I was very glad when she said it was a UTI because I know that can cause confusion in older patients and I saw my mom in the same state two years ago and then I thought it made perfect sense. After he finished the course he was not better at all and was just bedridden, although he would have hallucinations at night and one time he got out of bed and fell and hist his head. Another doctor who was on call came by and immediately prescribed a 7 day course of penicillin. He could not pass urine at the time but she left a vial for us to collect a sample, which I did only the next day after he had already had three doses of the penicillin.
The following day the doctor phoned and said pathology did not detect any infection, this was just his disease progressing naturally. Since then he's been completely bedridden. He's developed a bedsore on his back. He seems to be asleep all the time but when you talk to him he replies, although his speech is slurred and he speaks very softly (I guess from breathlessness). He's usually lucid but sometimes he gets confused and wants to get up and go run errands (is this normal or is it a result of a possible brain injury from when he hit his head?)
He's been on several types of medication but the doctor advised us to stop several - magnesium, vitamin D, diuretics, beta blockers and statins.
Now he's just on amioradone, colchecine, potassium, gabapentin (for neuropathy), and his doctor has added diosmectite for diarrhea (he was constipated for the past few months, I understand this is a symptom of amyloidosis), quetiapine (to help him sleep through the night) and has given us some Ativan for if he gets Anxious (but we haven't had to use that yet).
When he was diagnosed he got a pacemaker and today someone from the hospital came to turn off the defibrillator.
He has petechiae in several places, but I don't really know or understand why. The doctors don't seem worried about it.
He's still eating (but very little) and taking his medicine but he's developing a cough that sounds quite bad. Thankfully he does not seem to be in any pain or have any discomfort. His blood pressure is extremely low but his oxygen levels seem fine (he is on oxygen for most of the day - whenever we have electricity, but we live in South Africa and get rolling blackouts for 6-10 hours per day).
We have a great team of doctors, nurses and caretakers but when I ask how long he has none of them will really say anythinhg.
I know it's impossible to say with any certainty how long he has left but I just want to know, are we looking at days or weeks? My sister lives in Holland and I want to know to whether I should tell her to come say goodbye. I also just wanted to know if there's anything else I should expect. I've read how scary it can be when people are dying and have agonal breathing. Should we expect that? Will there be anything else I should prepare myself for?
Thank you to all the experts who share their knowledge here. You guys are the salt of the earth.

2023.06.02 01:01 EtNuncEtSemper The Raid on Skopje (Uskub), 1918 (Part 2)

The Raid on Skopje (Uskub), 1918 (Part 2)
The march, led by two local guides, begins on the morning of 26th, with the 1st RCA in the van and the RSM as rear guard. From Lisi膷e, the road is a series of mountain paths, on which the cavalry moves on foot, single file, leading the mounts by the bridle; the column stretches out for 6km. The pack animals carrying the machine guns advance with difficulty; the mules seem to be less sure-footed than the Barbary mounts. Drenovo is reached by evening, but the pause is short; by midnight, the march resumes. Crossing a plateau which rises to almost 1800m (5900ft), they descend towards Aldinci, which they reach by dawn on the 27th. But the RSM, having taken a wrong path, was forced to retrace its steps and it arrives at Aldinci only towards the evening.
The RCA march again after sunset, in the rain, and reach Crvena Voda by morning on the 28th, followed by the RSM during the day. The provisions have long been exhausted and the cavalry forages what they can; but at least there is enough water for the animals. In late afternoon the cavalry set out once more and, before midnight, they stop close to Dra膷evo, ready to debouch into the Skopje valley.
FJG plans to attack Skopje from 3 directions, W, SE, and E.
  • RSM, better equipped with heavy weapons, will take and hold the Vodna heights, which dominate the town from the west; they will also block the Tetovo (Kalkandelen) road, which the XIth Army is using.
  • 4th RCA will attack NW from Dra膷evo directly into Skopje.
  • 1st RCA will cross the Vardar near Jurumleri and attack Skopje from the E, along the Kumanovo road.
Action, which comes as a total surprise for the enemy, commences at 0500 on the 29th. The Moroccan spahis set out in deep fog towards Vodna. By 0900, having brushed aside light resistance, they are installed solidly on the heights and begin to block the Tetovo road, which by now is full of Bulgarians and Germans fleeing Skopje.
The 4th RCA follows along the right bank of the Vardar. Near Gorno Lisi膷e (a different village from the Lisi膷e at the foot of Mt Gole拧nica) they are stopped by heavy fire from a German armoured train. The chasseurs dismount and attack on foot; the armoured train withdraws towards the railway station, and, by 0800, the French reach the outskirts of Skopje. Half an hour later, they penetrate the town and patrols move to secure the heights north of Skopje. In the mean time, retreating Germans set on fire the railway station and supply dumps.
The 1st RCA crosses the Vardar at 0530, but, at Jurumleri, it comes across a Bulgarian infantry battalion. The Bulgarians resist stubbornly; two sabre charges fail to dislodge them. While some chasseurs dismount and attack on foot, two squadrons move to the Skopje-Veles road to deliver a flank assault. By noon, the Bulgarians are set to flight and a large road convoy is captured; by 1300 the 1st RCA reach, and cut, the Skopje-Kumanovo railway. But it is too late to stop several loaded trains which have fled north, escorted by the armoured train. Lacking heavy weapons, the 4th RCA could not prevent them from leaving the railway station.
Shortly after noon on the 29th, Skopje is under French control, although there are still, especially in the Turkish quarter, stragglers trying to escape, as well as some rear-guard action on the Kumanovo road. Despite the destruction, a significant booty has been captured and the cavalrymen can finally eat their fill.
For three days, the cavalry has been out of touch with higher command. War pigeons, carrying FJG's daily reports, have failed to arrive at the AFO HQ. A French aircraft makes contact with the cavalry during the battle; then, around 1400, two French aircraft land close to Skopje and take off shortly thereafter with a full report. In Thessaloniki (Salonica), Franchet d'Esp猫rey has been negotiating since the 28th an armistice with the Bulgarians. The news of the fall of Skopje is decisive and, shortly before midnight on the 29th, the Bulgarians effectively capitulate.
The mission of the cavalry is by no means over. They have taken Skopje -- now they have to hold it against the inevitable attack of the XIth Army, determined to escape towards Kumanovo. The main roads are blocked as follows: from Tetovo, by the RSM; from Ka膷anik, by the 4th RCA, to Kumanovo by the 1st RCA. Few in number and lacking artillery, they need urgent reinforcements. But the Trani茅 task force is delayed by the fighting at Veles. Despite the armistice, throughout the day of the 30th and continually through the night, Germans and Bulgarians attack the roadblocks, primarily on the Vodno heights to the W and the Ka膷anik road to the N. Finally, on the morning of the October 1st, the first elements of the Trani茅 task force reach Skopje and, by the end of the day, they have relieved the cavalry and taken control of the road blocks, securing the French hold on the lines of communication. The mass of the XIth Army, some 60000 Bulgarians and 1500 Germans, cease combat and surrender, but the German HQ units escape to the north.

2023.06.02 01:01 Acceptable-You9068 How My Ex (20F) Helped Me (21M) Develop Schizophrenia

My close friends tell me I should write a book. There鈥檚 no way to include all of the side stories and intricacies of the situation in a single post, like my surgeries or the heinous amounts of food I was doordashed. I just want to get this off my chest and have the reality of what happened written somewhere as I feel I鈥檓 fading into insanity.
I鈥檓 certainly not innocent here and I don鈥檛 feel like a victim. One of the hardest things about being cheated on is the feeling of not being enough and not being desirable. I definitely instigated this girl to chase me a little in order to feel better about myself, but I never could鈥檝e imagined how far she would go.
I (21M) dated my ex (20F) for three years- let鈥檚 call her Katie. I go to school in the Midwest and shes in school back home on the east coast (we were both college athletes- she has since quit). We started dating in high school and spent every second of every day together when I was home. Katie was loved dearly by my family, which consisted of nearly a dozen younger siblings that all became very attached. Our parents had no doubt that we would get married. I had experienced a traumatic breakup a few years prior and she made me forget about it completely.
About a month into the school year, I was on a long bus ride home from an away game and got a text from a mutual friend that Katie had cheated. I went through the stages of grief over the next 13 hours, stuck on this bus. I confronted her about it and after denying it over and over, she finally confessed.
We had spent the previous summer traveling the country together, both with her parents and alone. It turns out that she had cheated twice in April with a guy in her friend group right before we had left for our travels. She was horrified by what she did and planned on taking it to the grave. She claimed they were short, drunk mistakes. None of the rest of the friend group knew it happened, except for the one guy that ended up telling me, and obviously the guy she cheated with. Katie cut him off but apparently began entertaining him again once she got back to school, which prompted the mutual friend to tell me after seeing them flirting at the bar, but still not enough for any of her other friends to notice.
Katie along with me, my friends, and my family were devastated. It was months of misery, and still is. I was very dependent on her and had a hard time letting go. She was insistent on making it up to me and proving herself. She would constantly tell me that God told her that I鈥檓 her husband. She wouldn鈥檛 leave me alone. My parents believed her and advised me to forgive her.
I cut her off several times and each time she found a way around it. She showed up to my house unannounced (10+ hr drive) several times and wrote me, no exaggeration, over 120 letters. One time I was on a road trip and got a call from an unknown number around midnight. She was calling from some restaurant at the halfway point between our schools letting me know she was on her way because I had her number blocked.
It didn鈥檛 go well any time she was at my place. I regret to say she would convince me to let her sleep in my bed and things would go from there. I told myself that I was doing the right thing by not turning her away after that long of a drive. I鈥檇 promised her father that she would always be safe with me and turning her away in a dangerous Midwest city didn鈥檛 feel right. Regardless, I don鈥檛 have a good reason for sleeping with her.
I was desperate and had even tried taking another girl out on a date, but cut it off because I just wasn鈥檛 over Katie. I didn鈥檛 want to hurt someone else in this mess.
Eventually Thanksgiving break came around, and I was concerned about what would happen when Katie was down the street and not across the country.
I was flying home and I鈥檓 very cheap, so I always take any layover that will lower the price of my ticket.
This particular layover was totally out of the way in the deep south. My flight from this southern airport to the east coast was delayed. I looked around for a place to chill in the airport when I saw a familiar face from high school. I鈥檒l call her Riley (20F). We had never really crossed paths in high school, but we both knew of each other.
I walked over and sat next to her and we hit it off. It was something out of a movie. It was the first time in months that I felt any kind of relief from Katie. We were on the same flight and just happened to be sitting next to each other on the plane.
The wounds from Katie were still fresh, but how could I not follow up on that? I ended up taking her out on a date a few days later and hung out a few times after. We were both really into each other and I was enjoying the mental peace. She was gorgeous and incredibly entertaining just to talk to.
Unknown to me, (I probably could鈥檝e guessed this) Katie and Riley were friends at one point in high school and word quickly got around to Katie that Riley and I were talking. Part of that made it even sweeter.
Katie wasn鈥檛 exactly happy about this and still wouldn鈥檛 leave me alone. She would guilt trip me into doing Bible studies with her and would hang out with my sister (19F) when I ignored her.
This was all unknown to Riley. I felt guilty about it and didn鈥檛 want to hurt her. But Riley made it clear that she wasn鈥檛 looking for anything serious, so I opted not to mention it to her. I felt like it was alright because when I would see Katie it鈥檇 be at like a Dennys or something and we would just read the Bible and leave separately.
I didn鈥檛 have a car on the east coast, so Riley would have to pick me up when we hung out. One time, she stopped to get coffee right before picking me up and ran into my sister and Katie. Katie ran out of the shop crying and Riley and my sister had a brief interaction (Riley had never officially met my sister). Riley was very aware that me and Katie dated for a long time, but didn鈥檛 know why we broke up.
Anyway, she picked me up right after and did an incredible job acting like nothing happened. I heard the story a few days later from Katie and my sister, but never from Riley.
I kept in touch with Riley and we agreed that we would catch up over Christmas break.
My house on the east coast is about an hour and a half from the airport. I have to take a train into the city, and then get a ride from one of my friends in the city to the airport. On the way to the airport, while I was on the train, my ride bailed on me. I was going to miss my flight.
I knew that Katie was at school in the city. I totally see how this is wrong, I could鈥檝e paid for an Uber. I think part of me wanted to see her in some pain, knowing I was with Riley.
