2023.03.24 14:33 champser0202 What do you guys think? Has House of M (a very different and smaller version) already happened with WandaVision or is it yet to happen?

I ask this because another theory of mine came up.
If Marvel Studios still plans to do something with it, hear me out...
Could Wanda have a pivotal role in Secret Wars? Or maybe not but has post Secret Wars.
I was searching for House of M and a very brief synopsis on Wiki was:
"Scarlet Witch creates a world where mutants are in charge and humans are second-class citizens". That's basically it very briefly.
And my brain went right away...could this be the reality of our 616 post Secret Wars for the next Saga? A world where Mutants are in charge, at the forefront as we're all suspecting, some already speculating The Mutant Saga next. Could this be how we get there?
Scarlet Witch is massively popular character now. Mutants will take the spotlight after all this.
Could we see Scarlet Witch either having a big role in Secret Wars, leading to the creation of this post Secret Wars 616 where Mutants are in charge, humans are 2nd class citizens or simply something happens and it is created this world happening post Secret Wars for the next Saga, where Wanda could have a huge role ? And it all build up to "No More Mutants"
Maybe it's Doom the one who does it. The one behind this post Secret Wars transition.
Mind you, we're still YEARS away from Secret Wars. It will be delayed to 2027 at least, likely 2028. Lots of projects happening that we don't even know. A LOT is yet to happen.
And this is honestly the type of huge repercussions and swings MCU benefit post Secret Wars. And I think it makes sense? Maybe.
I think it would be really interesting to see the remaining heroes live this new reality post Secret Wars.
What do you guys think?

2023.03.24 14:33 tenyokoten "The show should've ended at s5"

Is this some kind of inside joke?
I know, this is the deadest horse anyone could've beaten around here. But seriously, the way s5 ended is remotely anything to do with "good"? It was horrible. This has to be at least a warm take right? People even say this ending is "touching"? Are we watching the same show?
Less than a month ago, I started the series, liked it, and have just finished s5. All this time, I've seen people say Supernatural's gone on for too long, should've ended it at 5 seasons, s5 was a perfect timing to have ended the show, etc. I've also heard the series finale wasn't great, but that's irrelevant. However bad it was, I can't imagine Supernatural being better off having ended at s5. Hell, the show could've ended at s1 and that would've been a way better ending.
I was looking forward to the perfect ending, or at least a serviceable one that would make later seasons feel somewhat redundant. I thought it was like how True Detective only needed one season, or how Twin Peaks s3 was unnecessary. But I've been let down, and I just can't let the show end here. I have no choice but to continue watching now.
I guess deep down, I am kinda upset that they didn't get the standard happy ending, but even so, I would've preferred if the show had just killed everyone off. The "this is the end, or is it? (dun-dun-duuuun)" thing made it feel really half-assed. I wish they'd just committed to either ending the show for good, or not at all.
But more than anything, the pacing is just horrible. The last few episodes were visibly rushed, and the finale was full of just cuzs, e.g. Lawrence, of all places, really? “Where it all started”? Yeah, for the Winchesters, not Michael and Lucifer. I don’t care if or how they retcon it in later seasons, how does this make sense here and now?
Btw, did you know the Impala is a very cool car? Did you know it is very important to the boys? Well you do now because we've just started "foreshadowing" it in at the very last episode. Don't get me wrong, I love the Impala. But you're telling me, Sam suddenly came to because he saw the goddamn Impala? Because it reminded him of all those memories he had with his brother? I'm sure nothing else could've reminded him that, definitely not his brother who was in those memories and who also happens to be standing right in front of him. I get it, can't do the brother thing all the time, gotta have some twist to it, gotta make it poetic. But it's executed poorly and Carver Edlund, you are a crappy writer, you suck ass. This is giving me BvS Martha flashbacks.
I watched this on Amazon Prime, and it automatically skips the credits and plays the next episode. This time I actually went back to watch the credits, because I was expecting an post-credits scene. Because you can't tell me "Sam watching across the street" is the ending and I'm supposed to go "awww" and sleep a good night’s sleep. Dean’s resolution is just miserable, impractical, and way too abrupt. Am I supposed to believe Dean would live happily ever after with his makeshift family? It is just escapism. There is no way Dean could suddenly live like civilians. He should've be given more time to slowly integrate back into society. Start small, meet new people, build and maintain new relationships, not jump right into the family part.
I could go on for hours, but these are the main plot decisions that annoy me. Did this bother you when you saw s5 for the first time?

2023.03.24 14:32 kay-tany I'm Struggling to Understand

Hi. I (30F), met a nice guy on bumble. We haven't had a proper date due to odd circumstances. The first time we were to meet for date I injured my ankle on my way out to meet him, so I just invited him over to my place cos I didn't want him to think I was lying. We had a very nice conversation and make out a little bit and then he left. We texted severally after that but not like a lot, but dependant on his availability. Last weekend he took me on a scenic drive to his favourite spots and we had nice conversations in the car and made out a little bit. During this time, I confided that I am very interested and eager to know him better and that on my part means a lot of conversation and talking. I also told him that although texting is a way of communication, it is not really conversational and I do not feel like I know him through text. I live in downtown so I am enroute when he goes to work or leaves work. And I told him I am open to meeting him and just having conversations if he's ever interested. Aside from the two conversations, I don't think we have really gotten to know each other at all. I don't feel like there's progress in learning about each other. I told him though that I am certainly interested. He says he thinks I'm beautiful and smart, and that he appreciates that I am being patient with him, because he is not a very social person (that's what he said in terms of conversation) and that he likes to take time. I told him I don't mind taking the time, we are going slow after all, but can we just talk or have open conversations about each other. Not just how's the day? How's work? Etc. He said he's not social and just needs a bit of patience.
Question is: am I being impatient asking for more talk time? Should I just "go with the flow"? I am the kind of person that relies in talking to know something. If you don't have an autobiography, how else am I going to know about you? Does that make sense?.
Seriously, he's so cute and has the ambition but he isn't talking much. He says he's interested in me, but how slow is slow? Is the not knowing slow? How do you build towards something without getting to know someone?
I feel sad that I might not get the chance to get to know him and I'll ultimately have to let him go. Which is so sad because he's quite nice and very desirable.

2023.03.24 14:32 Aixx78 What do you think I should do?

My NW is not high ($750K). I am posting here, because i am seeking advice from people who are where I would like to be. I'm mid 40s married with 2 young kids.
I'm a Project Manager for a very high end construction firm that builds homes for the 1% of the 1%. Most of our budgets are north of $50MM and nearly all of our clients are net worth north of 1B. I would be lying if I said the envy of what these people spend money doesn't effect me.
But, my real issue is with the Owner of my company and my boss. The owner of the company is a very high net worth individual himself from a prestigious family. He has no construction background but his network of clients is a major part of the business of course. There is a COO who runs the whole show from a high level who has been my mentor for 20 years. I think he is the best construction manager in the United States - and I say that seriously.
I'm a project manager and run 2 jobs below him. We have about 4 or 5 projects company wide in progress most times. The Owner collects the big checks, the COO is partner and collects in the range of 20% of profits on top of what I'm guessing is a $800K salary. I don't get to see the bottom line, but I know the profits on my project and can do the math. I think the company nets between $3MM to $5MM a year. My projects are typically $1MM to $2MM of that.
I make between 300K and 400K per year, but I have no equity, no 401K (but yes on health insurance - big deal). I'm W-2. My wife works W-2 as well but we are in a HCOL area and kids are in good private schools. We have a good net salary but we spend a god damn fortune and it's not like we are living a life of luxury.
I'm bitter, totally unmotivated, secretly pissed, and feel trapped. One of my 2 projects has an absolutely impossible client. It's a long story that I can't really share here, but if you heard it I guarantee you would agree that he is the problem on the project. I have a very good track record besides this one.
I was told by the COO that the day is coming where the Owner is going to start giving equity to the employees. The owner is very old and once he truly retires the business doesn't need him. It's all people and no assets. My concern is that that equity will be distributed throughout the whole company and I'll end up with 3% and still feel unsatisfied.
I don't like what I've become - silently pissed off, unmotivated, resentful. I worked hard and focused for nearly 20 years in this organization. I don't show this, but I think it's becoming known and my relationship with the owner is basically one of silence and detachment. The COO I'm close with and really like.
I've looked around elsewhere and can match the salary and have 2 offers with "growth into equity" but I'm not really fond of the companies.
I'm thinking about going out on my own, but I'm tight on cash. I'm pretty sure I can go out on my own into a CM position and book some good projects quickly. I'm sure I won't be making a mill a year, but I could probably get there in 3 to 5 years. Moreover, I feel like I would be my old self again and have always felt I should be a business owner as my father and grandfather were. My fear is having a rough couple years out of the gate with the kids.
Any advice or perspective would be appreciated. Isn't some equity a realistic request after 20 years... I feel like I've been fucked over considering how much of my life I've put into this.

2023.03.24 14:32 throwra2040 My (24m) girlfriend (23f) won't see her hypocrisy in how she spent her bonus from work

Me and my gf are both working and are both early in our careers. A few months ago I got a £200 bonus from work for passing some exams. As soon as I got it my gf was asking what I was going to spend it on and talking asking if I was going to get her a little present with it etc. She mentioned going out for a meal a few times and I thought it would be a nice thing to do so we went to a nice restaurant in our area that we have been wanting to try and I paid for us.
My gf got a £500 bonus from work last month and when she was talking about how to spend it I jokingly asked what she was getting me. She said nothing and that she was going to treat herself to some new clothes and a night at a nice spa near us. I suggested going out for a meal like we did with my bonus and she said if we go out we'll have to split the bill since she wont be paying for the full meal. I was a little disappointed since she kept going on at me to do something for us when I got my bonus.
It's not even just the meal. For example if I go to the shop to grab something and she asks me to pick something up which I'm happy to do but on the rare occasion I ask my gf to grab me something she'll ask me to transfer her the money for it. I pointed out her hypocrisy when it comes to us getting things for each other and she just said I can't tell her what to do with her money. I get that but she won't see that she expects to be able to do that to me. She went quiet and didn't answer when I asked why she expects me to get things for her when I get a bonus or go to the shop etc but she is unwilling to do that for me. Does anyone have any advice?
tl;dr My gf expects me to use part of the money I get from bonuses on getting her things but refuses to do the same for me and can't see the hypocrisy. Does anyone have any advice?

2023.03.24 14:32 Due_Influence_2888 Our sex life has NEVER been good

My partner and I have been together a few years. Our relationship started out great, he was everything i seemingly needed in a partner and i trusted him immediately, but i noticed right away the first time I tried to innitiate sex that he was extremely disengaged. He just laid there like a board, barely touching me, kissing me back in this very mechanical way. He seemed completely checked out & almost scared.
For a few months we couldn't even have sex because he'd lose his erection, but I loved him so we still tried. It eventually got to the point where he could maintain & we could have penatrative sex, so I thought we were making progress! Maybe we would eventually make enough progress for him to loosen up & actually start being engaged & sensual, and maybe start to do things I liked so I could get off too.
I was very clear and concise to him about what I like, how I like it, for how long, etc. He made a few attempts, but never really seemed interested, never got good at it, & eventually things just went back to only me going down on him, then having p in v sex in one position only, then he'd finish & it'd be done.
So now it's been several years of us living together & we barely have sex once every few months. When we do, it's not good. He hasn't made any progress as far as getting good at or even really trying to do any foreplay or anything I like, and he is still very stiff & disengaged. I used to be a very sexual person & now I can't stand the idea of having more disappointing sex. I feel like at this point if things where going to get better they would have. We are simply not sexually compatible.
Do you think some people just don't have the mechanism to be good at sex? That no matter how much you love someone, that some people just will never have good sex together no matter how much you communicate & try?
I really feel like at this point, I want to stop trying. I have never felt like he has been truly attracted to or turned on by me, even tho he claims the opposite. I just don't see the evidence. I feel like he is completely detached from his body & has no idea how he feels.

I think reddit is the perfect medium for me to communicate with you because it gives you back 2 things you need the most. Safety and control. It puts you and me at a safe distance so you can feel safe about it and it gives you the control on whether to see these messages, when to see them and how to process them. I don't ever mean to message you anywhere and I dont ever mean to close this distance.
I know i shouln't make it about myself because i have acted selfishly all the time. I was under the impression that you have bpd ( connecting unrelated threads in my head ) but when you told me about cptsd, everything clicked. I can't take back the words I said but trust me none of them were true about you. Not even single one. Its important for you to not blame yourself on how i acted, it is absolutely my fault and i own up to it and what i did will haunt me for the rest of my life.
Its important to remember how people act around you isnt a reflection of who you are, instead a reflection of who they are. Don't feel guilty for any of this.
I don't know much about psychosis but it sounds horrible to go through. I am really sorry you are going through it. These demons won't haunt you forever i promise.

2023.03.24 14:31 hiraeZh Python mentor for basically a beginner

I have very little Python experience. It consists of a college course I took and I have been working through the sololearn material. I am very much a visual/hands on learner. Reading about Python just doesn't stick with me the same as actually doing the work. I have a background with QA and to move forward and progress my career I need more experience with Python. I do enjoy writing code and I understand basic concepts I just need to find a way to do more and learn more about it and how to apply it in a work environment.

2023.03.24 14:31 c4jina My wife fell from the apartment stairs at night for the lack of visibility

This happened a couple of nights ago; she couldn't move (and I was not there), so she called an ambulance, and they took her to the hospital; the x-ray showed no broken bones, and they determined that she had a sprained ankle.
My crappy insurance covers her, and I'm unsure how much this will cost. She also missed one day of work.
Anyway, I do not want to pay for the medical bills because, as I stated before, this happened due to the lack of visibility (even the paramedics noted that those stairs are a hazard at night); the light bulbs stopped working several months ago. Unfortunately, they have never gotten around to fixing them. So I'm looking for the Apartment complex to pay the medical bills.
I have not contacted my landlord; we took pictures and videos of how the stairs look the night because I'm 1000% sure that once I bring the case up, they will fix the light in no time.
Do you know if I have a case here? Is it worth pursuing it?

2023.03.24 14:31 FewPapaya2176 Looking for perspective

I (F18) have been given the diagnosis of GAD (generalized anxiety disorder) and it has taken an extraordinary toll on my physical health. I am in a constant state of fight or flight and I’ve never been in this much pain in my life. It’s the kind of pain people kill themselves from. I am constantly shaking and throwing up. This constant stress has given me the diagnosis of IBS (irritable bowel syndrome). I had to go to multiple doctors as IBS is hard to diagnose. The stomach pain triggers the anxiety and the anxiety triggers the stomach pain so basically I’m constantly in both mental and physical pain. However I believe it goes deeper than GAD. It doesn’t stop. It’s not attacks either it doesn’t come or go.. it stays. I’ve taken benzos and they don’t do shit for me and neither does any depression or anxiety medications. I wish I could be sedated so I don’t have to be awake and in pain. There have been a few incidents where I had to go to the hospital and beg to be sedated or at least booty juiced or something that would put me to sleep. Luckily I found lamictal and it has saved my life. I honestly don’t think I would be alive today if it hadn’t been for modern medicine. But this still raises the question of what is actually wrong with me. I’m thinking of this because my lamictal is beginning to lose its effect and I have to increase my dose every couple of weeks. I couldn’t get a therapy appointment scheduled until late June so I’m kinda fucked.

2023.03.24 14:31 Favourite_Banana85 [Emotiv] Finale: Moving On

[Emotiv] Finale: Moving On
Cover Art First Chapter leave a tip author site
The story so far: Kyla took a job as a Mixologist at Emotiv, a cafe selling emotions in liquid form. Soon, she becomes entangled in a morally grey area of society, singled out by a corrupt warden and thrown into reform. Caught between a government only interested in making coin, and a rebellious group of baristas who work from the shadows to support society's underbelly, who's to say what is right anymore? Perhaps everyone is just looking out for number one. And maybe it's time Kyla does the same...

Finale: Moving On

By the time the wardens return with a supply of Composure, courtesy of Emotiv, Sinclair and Harding are draining their third whisky.
“The water brings the flavours out, you see?” Sinclair hiccups. “Without it, it’s just not the same. Ah! There you are.” He motions to the wardens in the elevator. “Please, come in. Thank you.”
Frank and I fetch the compliance and soak Dani and Lena’s lips with the neat syrup, patiently wetting their tongues in the hope of bringing them back to consciousness. Lena’s eyes flutter almost right away, and Frank quickly brings her up to date.
Dani lays limp in my arms, their eyelashes thick and dark against their cheeks. Stroking their face, I run my thumb across their lower lip, willing them to wake up. “Come on, come on…”
Three doses. I couldn’t help but count them as I watch their motionless face. The first when Harding first took them from Emotiv. The second in reform. And now a third.
Caleb got three doses.
“Come on…”
“Patience is a virtue,” Dani says weakly, their face brightening instantly, eyes fluttering open.
A small squeak escapes me, and I hold Dani’s face in both hands, bending down and kissing them, not caring about anyone else in the room.
“I thought I lost you,” I say through the thick feeling in my throat, the threatening tears choking me. “I thought you were dead. I thought—”
“Shh.” Dani strokes a hand through my hair, gazing up into my eyes. “I’m alright. A bit dazed but…”
“There, you see?” Sinclair says with a satisfied smile, although his eyes soften when he looks at Dani, as though he’s beginning to feel the first pangs of guilt. “All’s well that ends well.”
“Here,” I pass the glass of Composure to Dani. “This will help.”
While Lena and Dani come to, we fill them in on the ‘deal’. I don’t give too many details about the terms we’ve agreed, only that Lena needs to broadcast a message to Skycross.
It takes her no time to set up a makeshift studio in Sinclair’s apartment with his computer and a security camera, ready to transmit his announcement across the city. While she works, I watch Sinclair and Harding carefully, noting every frown, every flicker of doubt that crosses their face. As time goes by, it becomes more and more frequent, until Lena is ready to broadcast.
“Alright,” she says warily. “It’s not perfect, but it’ll do. Who’s going live first?”
I raise my eyebrows at Sinclair. “I think Mr Sinclair should start.”
He looks surprised, but nods slowly, like he’s considering his options. “Yes… yes, of course. I’ll go first.”
While Sinclair positions himself in front of the camera, I turn to Dani and take their hand.
“Come on,” I murmur. “Let’s go.”
They frown. “Aren’t you meant to do a thing?”
I shake my head.
“People of Skycross, residents of Central Square. I speak to you tonight, not as a VIP, but as a fellow resident of this city.” Sinclair looks earnestly into the camera, his lower lip trembling as he seems to weigh his words. “I… I have so much to tell you.”
Dani and I walk hand in hand to the elevator, where Harding stares out of the window. Outside, Sinclair’s face is plastered over every building, every ad board, every visible screen in Skycross.
Harding’s eyes are glassy, his shoulders slumped. As the elevator doors close behind us, he slides to the floor, covering his head with his hands and sobbing softly.
“What the hell did you do to him?” Dani asks.
I shrug. “Frank and I figured they needed a taste of their own medicine.”
Dani cocks an eyebrow. “Yeah, sure, but which one?”
“Take your pick.” I grin, embracing the warmth in my veins from the liquid happiness I’ve dosed myself with.
Outside, the air is cool and crisp. I breathe deeply, weaving through the assembled wardens and rioters in warden gear.
“Many years ago, we implemented a new reform centre within Skycross. We promised that the inmates there would be given the skills to survive and thrive in society. But in truth… they were nothing more than free labour. I turned a blind eye to the reasons for their imprisonment, but I did not work alone in this.”
Dani squeezes my hand as we reach the edge of Central Square, tugging on me slightly. “Kyla, wait—”
I turn back to them. “What’s wrong?”
“Where are we going?”
“I… I don’t know.” I laugh a little. “Anywhere.”
Over Dani’s shoulder, I see my mother, standing with her face turned up to the massive screens dominating the central plaza. Behind her stands Caleb, with one hand on her shoulder. I know it’s not this simple. Even if I walk away, he’ll still haunt me.
“Anywhere but here.”
“Dennis Harding, the Chief Warden of Skycross, was elected to his position due to my recommendation. He and I made a deal to fill reform as quickly as possible, and keep it full, so that Emotiv would have an abundance of free workers. Willing, compliant workers, thanks to the emotion enhancers we have at our disposal. I regret this. I do not know how to make it up to you. I put my fate into your hands.”
Dani kisses me softly, their hand cupping my chin. “Okay. Let’s go.”
There’s more to fix, more to survive. Like the tendrils of Oblivion that curl in the back of my mind, waiting for a dark moment to strike. Any moment of doubt, or sadness, or despair, and the drug will take effect, replaying my mistakes, my trauma, my sins, on repeat in front of my eyes.
And yet, at this moment, walking hand-in-hand with Dani, I don’t really mind. Maybe it’s the prospect of a fresh start, a new place, a new life.
Or maybe that’s just the Serenity talking.
Author’s Note:
Wow. A whole year since I started developing my short story into this serial novel. It’s the first time I’d ever written a serial, and I went into it with less than an ideal plan. I had no outline, no ending, and very little idea of what I was doing. I just knew it was a good way to motivate myself to write (almost) every week.
Emotiv has been a huge learning experience for me, and while it’s definitely more than a little rough around the edges, I’m really pleased to have seen the project through to the end.
I’m going to take a few months off from working on Emotiv now to work on other projects, and then I’ll be looking back over this story as a first draft, ready to edit into a more cohesive and well planned out novel. Hah. Should be fun!
In the meantime, if you have any comments or feedback about this story and all its many varied plotholes, please do let me know - it’ll come in really useful when I finally sit down to polish it up!
Thank you so much for reading Kyla’s weird and tangled story. I hope you enjoyed it in its current form, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for following along!

2023.03.24 14:31 Overall-Ocelot4444 Looking for TC’s but no A-Levels

Okay so this is a long one.. I am currently in the second year of my LLB, and I’m looking at and applying for training contracts starting 2024/25. My worry is that I do not have any A-Levels - I have a foundation year as part of my LLB because I left school and got a Level 2 Diploma in Hairdressing and a Level 3 Diploma in Fashion & Business instead of going to Sixth Form - also should I leave these qualifications out of my applications? Most of the time they ask for why you haven’t completed A-Levels or what your equivalents are - but I’m not sure because of the slight snobbery in the legal profession whether these qualifications are even deemed any kind of equivalent. My question is does my not having any A-Levels mean I’m less likely to get a vacation scheme or training contract? And if so, how can I fix this / what kind of experience will I need to counteract this?
I have a part time job gaining experience in the area that I want to work in and have also volunteered over last summer in regards to the area I want to work in as well. I am on track for a high 2:1 / 1st class LLB at a non Russell Group University - I completed a summer internship in my area last year that led to my now part time job - although it is not quite QWE. I do recognise that most people complete their QWE as a paralegal etc after graduation but I want to get as much of a head start as possible. I also don’t particularly want to complete an LLM as I mostly have seen people say it’s kind of useless in regards to qualifying as a solicitor. Please correct me if I’m wrong though! Happy to answer any questions if I haven’t given enough info

2023.03.24 14:31 Due-Pack5945 Help with Wedding Invite

Hello, looking for some help when creating my wedding invite. My parents are helping to pay for the wedding and are adamant that they want “Mr & Mrs ____ invite you to the wedding of their daughter”. I don’t love this, find it’s really wordy, and it seems out of touch/too old school. Any suggestions on how to modernize this? My fiancé does not have parents or siblings so our original idea of “___ and ____ along with their families” will not work.
Thank you!

2023.03.24 14:31 dniwehtotnoituac I lack the competence and independence to remain a senior developer. How do I begin to fix this? (follow-up to recent thread)

This is a follow-up to this thread. Things have changed a little bit since then and I've become a bit more aware of certain things.
First things first: I have requested to leave the project. The unfortunate reality is that I am the clueless senior dev that others are so often worried about, and there's no running away from the fact that one of the reasons why I lost my first job was because I'd started working less and less and lost faith in the team, which in turn led to me outright losing a lot of the knowledge I'd acquired and needing to be babysat for the simplest of tasks. What's more, these last couple of years I've ended up spending mostly on low scale bug fixes which I still needed help to do, and have effectively lost almost the entirety of my ability to develop something from scratch on my own.
I have an interview for another senior role within the company lined up soon, but in my current position I quite literally cannot fulfill the requirements for the position. I've had a look at what would be required of me in this role for that project and I can safely say that I would not be able to fulfill these tasks, certainly not without being completely babysat. I've tried speaking to my manager about this to some extent but I just came off as being even more confused than I was in the previous thread, probably because I'm masking the fact that I don't know what I'm doing.
I think it's only a matter of time before I'll find myself leaving the company one way or another, but if I was to put myself in a position where I can start to perform adequately again, how would I go about doing this? The feeling of total burnout is still very much present, but now it feels weird calling it that when so much of what I feel has gone wrong is down to the fact that I hardly have any real knowledge or experience, and that I've lost almost all of it doing menial QA and testing work for too long.

2023.03.24 14:31 etpoire Pregnancy as a step mother

I am almost 6 weeks pregnant. My partner and I decided to start trying in October. He has three daughters from another marriage. He has had frequent changes of heart regarding having a baby in the 4 years we have been together. In October he told me if I'm going to have a baby he wants it to be with him. He said we should start trying sooner rather than later.
When I told him I was pregnant, he was happy for a day. Then he began to worry about the effects it would have on his daughters, ages 9, 12 and 15. He asked all three what they would think of me having a baby separately. Two of them said they wanted me to have a baby, the 12 year old said it would be okay.
Two nights ago the 9 year old came to him and said her 12 year old sister thinks I'm pregnant, so he decided to talk with her. He said I might be, but we are waiting to talk to a doctor. His daughter became distant and wouldn't comment on what he said. Since then she has looked sad, cried a couple of times and isn't really talking to us. She will shrug or whisper when we try and talk to her.
My partner was already freaking out (see previous post) and now it's a lot worse. The last thing he said to me was that if I want a baby I should have a baby with someone who wants one rather than hurting him and his children. I don't know how to handle this. Does anyone have advice?
Before this, we were living pretty harmoniously. Me and the girls get along.

2023.03.24 14:31 Royalwise78 I'm tired of hearing that making money on tiktok is easy.

Lately, I've been reading various comments and watching videos where people are happy with tiktok closing in our country and can't stop ""feeling sorry"" for influencers who will have to search for real jobs instead of grimacing at the camera.

I don't depend on tiktok to earn my living, but I worked with many tiktok influencers to promote merch, and I can state that entertaining followers isn't an easy job. I'd say it can be more challenging than eight hours in the office daily and requires a lot of creativity and perseverance.

It's not easy at all to keep people interested in your content, especially with such severe competition. I've worked with influencers who spent hours and sometimes even days reshooting their videos so that everything looked great without any mistakes. I met tiktok creators who constantly altered the script and worried whether their statements could offend someone.

Besides, people aren't satisfied with poor video quality, and making quality content requires tech skills that not everyone has. For example, I worked five years in marketing and still have no idea how to apply special effects so it won't look cheap or edit the video, so no one understands there was a cut.

I agree that some people grimace in front of the camera or film their pets fooling around and quickly go viral, but in the long run, even such lucky ones need a strategy to keep their followers engaged. Without well-thought-out content, even services from which you can buy tiktok shares and likes won't be much help.

From my experience, people can spend months and sometimes years shooting videos until they can finally monetize their tiktok account. Those thinking otherwise are simply envious or don't understand how things work. Making money from tiktok isn't easier than having a real job.

2023.03.24 14:30 AutoModerator 2023 r/Cricket Census Results, Part 2 - Following the game

Welcome to part 2 of the results to the subreddit census we ran a couple of weeks ago! Here is part 1 on the general demographic info in case you missed it. This time around we're looking at the results to the questions on 'following the game' - by far the chunkiest of the 4 sections in the survey, containing 15 questions. To stop the post being one unbroken wall of text, the results will be split up into a few mini-sections which will hopefully be a little nicer to read through. Off we go...

National Team and Time Spent Following Cricket

Which Competitions Do You Follow?

Followership Habits

Watching Matches In Person

Using Cricket

And breathe. Hopefully that wasn't too much of a slog to read through; like I said at the start, this is by far the meatiest of the 4 sections, meaning the others shouldn't be this bad. A few quite interesting and slightly unexpected results in there, so hopefully there's a bit for you all to discuss in the comments. Part 3 will likely be out sometime next week, and will cover the section on playing cricket, including everyone's favourite question from the survey: 'how do you rate your cricketing ability out of 10?'.
