2023.05.30 06:41 Sokatich111 Luis MZ - A Cautionary Tale. “From country town Australia to the bright lights of LA - and back again!”or “How Reddit saved LMZ”
Educated, and with a very privileged upbringing, LMZ spent hours on the internet watching YT travel blogs and dreamed of one day living and working in a big city.
Watches were also an interest for LMZ. His daddy gave him a Rolex when he graduated and he knew from watching YT watch experts that this gift was a solid investment.
LMZ wanted to show his daddy that he too could get rich. Not by years of hard work and by gradually gaining experience in a professional field and becoming an expert in his given field - NO - this was not how LMZ was going to do it. LMZ was going to do it fast! And without contributing anything to a society or system that has gifted him so very much by the fortune of birth.
NFTs!!! A sure fire way to scan people out of their money and contribute zero to society. But alas, timing was bad.
Used watches!!! He particularly liked the YTer Anthony Farrer. Small and shapely, LMZ started daydreaming about one day working for the cockie hottie. LMZ had never met a criminal before and it was exciting.
So he contacted Coach. Told him he was a big fan and told him that he really liked him. Coach said “whatever” and took LMZs details. Later that night Coach googled LMZs details and “Shazam” he found out LMZ had a rich daddy.
After sending Coach $30k for the course LMZ arrived in LA ready to meet his idol. And he wasn’t disappointed. Criminals were just as exciting and unpredictable as his daddy had told him.
At first working for Anthony was a delight. The other criminals and drug smugglers treated LMZ like family. He finally found a place he belonged. He got to drive Coach’s leased Ferrari!!! It was awesome.
Then the bad men of Reddit discovered LMZ They started making LMZ memes and nasty comments. And it got so bad daddy finally heard about it and then googled Anthony Farrer.
The horror when daddy found out his little boy was working for a felon and a prostitute.
“Get home this instant” daddy ordered.
And so Reddit had saved LMZ by alerting daddy with whom his little boy was mixing.

2023.05.30 06:35 theFoot58 Dual zone vs 1 zone, how much floorspace for equipment?
I’m building a 1 story, 2100 sq/ft 2bd 2ba home in Southern California. My VHCOL city requires condensers with 53db noise max.
My contractor’s HVAC guy says he can only get a max 3 ton unit that complies, so I’ll need two.
Contractor says “not so bad, two zones will allow for more efficient use”. I’m OK with that.
Our floor plan only has 3’ x 3’ inside for AC equipment.
Do I have to enlarge this space?
One zone will be ducted under the raised floor. Other zone ducts go up to attic.

2023.05.30 06:34 ElonMuskIs_God The dominance of the Tika 3 disrupted the "new era" narratives that Jeff wants to create
Imo, Jeff trying to market the post-WAW seasons as the "new era" of Survivor is such a big crock of shit. Because they are portraying it as a game that has been completely renovated, whereas it has just been tweaked a little bit. 26 days and an almost completely stagnant format have promoted exactly what Jeff and production have been trying to avoid: predictability.
With the lack of a swap in three seasons and only three people swapping this season, it guarantees that every contestant is only going to know a maximum of five other people at the merge, with the more likely numbers being 2-4. At the mergatory, Yam Yam and Carolyn had only met Carson and Josh, and they both had no desire to work with one. On top of that, because the players are not expecting a swap, they are preparing for that scenario. Which means that they are more likely to stick by their initial alliances in the pre-merge. Because they have a better idea of what those are like, what they stand for and what their tendencies are. We saw this in 44, those three stuck to each other and while there were conversations about breaking them up, they ultimately did not. While there was waivering, there is a big difference between talking and actually following through.
IMO, there is one person every season that exemplifies the values that Jeff tries to pump into the new era. These values are: fluid alliances, advantages, aggression and unnecessary flash. In their defense, they typically go relatively far, but I do not think they could ever win. This season, Danny was that player for me and it was shown in his desperation to eliminate Frannie. I can see the rationale for Tika and Ratu to get Frannie out, won two immunities very early, smart woman who has that nerdy likability to her. But, who is she working with outside of Danny and Heidi? Because not only did the Tika 3 stick together like glue, but so did Ratu. Despite Brandon being pissed at Kane for the first tribal, he still stuck with him and Ratu to the end. If Frannie leaves, she needs to win out, which is no guarantee. Frannie needed Soka, especially with Matt being eliminated by a series of unfortunate events.
At the time of Frannie's elimination, Ratu only had two people left and Tika still had their three. Going after literally anyone on Tika at this point would have been the smarter move. Since Frannie and Carolyn seemed close, going after Yam Yam or Carson would probably be the smarter move, and going after either of them would be a win for Soka. In keeping Frannie, not only does Danny keep his numbers up, but he also has another person who can win challenges and better ensure that the threats on Tika and Ratu (particularly Tika) go home. If you want Frannie out, it would have been best for him to vote her out at 5 or try to get her out in fire. But nope, he banked on fluid alliances and it bit him in the ass. Without Frannie, his only solid alliance was Heidi and because he was the physically strongest male of the season, it does not shock me in the slightest that Tika was able to convince Ratu to eliminate him right after.
Humans, for the most part, inherently do not want to be in ultra chaotic environments. Most people want predictability. In a strategy game, predictability is one of the most important aspects of an ally. Because it enables you to better curate your strategy for your current situation. I think this is why Carson, who is clearly a very intelligent man, wanted to take Yam Yam and Carolyn to the end, despite both of them not being major goats, when he could have tried to take people like Jaime and Heidi, both of which seemed to not play that great (Carolyn deserved votes over Heidi and this is not up for debate imo). Because he knew Yam Yam and Carolyn were more likely to stick to him, whereas the other women left at six could have easily targeted him given the opportunity.
A large part of how the game is played is influenced by the previous few seasons. The biggest instance of this imo is that the MvGX cast saw Cambodia before leaving and not Kaoh Rong, because the gameplay was so similar. From then on, because super fan nerds saw this, liked it, and were getting casted at a higher rate, wanted to better emulate that game because at the end of the day: while everyone is there to win, you don't want to be bored. Plus, with the 26 day format (obligatory it sucks comment), Jeff has been promoting that the everyone needs to play a more fast paced strategy. People see that and think: "ok, big moves time". Plus, to add onto this, the people that play the more aggressive game generally get a more positive edit and feedback from Probst (see: Aubry vs Michele).
But, what this does is give the people less time to bond. Less time to form personal and strategic partnerships. In 44, we had all three of the original tribes stick together until the end. In 42, we had the Taku 4 dominate until the final 6 before turning on each other. The Taku and Tika alliances are two very similar alliances imo were all of them were solid players with winning paths. There was no dead weight in either group. The only difference was that Maryanne saw that her chances of winning were not great, which is why she voted out Omar and Lindsay in subsequent votes. Then there was 41, which had 4 of the original Luvu tribe in the final 6. In addition, they had Ua and Yase who were working together initally before being splintered from within. 43 definitely deviates from this the most, but this season still had Jesse and Cody, as well as Karla and Cassidy, two duos from the same original tribe who worked together for a while. But, this season is the only one to feature significant cross tribal lines after the merge.
I think that Jeff is incredibly out of touch, which is not an unpopular opinion here. But I just think it is absolutely baffling that he can watch every single season in real time, watch the editing and the finished product and think "my perspective is correct always" (just need to say: my perspective is not always right either. I was so fucking confident that Ricard was going to win 41 that I probably would have wagered my buff collection on it). Jeff, if what you thought was right, Russell wins Samoa, Aubry wins Kaoh Rong and Rob is a five time winner. He continues to push this "new era" when the people who are dominating are implementing a ton of old school strategy with some modern takes on it.

2023.05.30 06:34 MonstersOnTheHill I am late 30s, live outside NYC, and have a HHI of $400k+. I work full time, have two kids, and am a grad student
I'm a day late posting this -- I'm sorry to have gotten off schedule! I realize there have been a lot of high-earner diaries recently, but I hope my diary is still of interest.
Section One: Assets and Debt
Retirement Balance: $460K (mine) and $250K (husband’s). We both max out our annual withholdings. I’ve been working longer than him, and my employer offers a more generous match, which contributed significantly to my balance.
Equity: $275K. Our home is currently worth about $450K. We live in a M-HCOL area (far) outside of NYC, and our home was a fixer upper when we bought it. Honestly, it’s still a fixer, and we are saving towards a major renovation.
Cars: Maybe $15-$20k total…we drive two paid off cars. One is 13 years old, and the other is 10 years old.
Other Cash and Investments: $150K
Credit card debt: None, paid every month
Student loan debt (for what degree): $80K towards the grad degree I’m pursuing now. Since we’re saving towards the home reno, I’m financing my degree rather than paying for it outright. I know this is counterintuitive given the interest rate environment. However, the home reno has been a priority for us since we bought this home.
Daughters’ 529s: $75K
Section Two: Income
Income Progression: I've been working in my field for 13 years and my starting salary was $40,000.
I work as a Director of Financial Planning & Analysis in a niche field. I won’t go into too many details because it’s a small world. My salary progression was as follows:
Year 1: $40,000 starting, right after recession. I had an amazing boss who mentored me and recognized my potential. After six months, I received a promotion and raise to $60,000.
Year 3: Promotion and raise to $90,000, for a role with more financial and analytical responsibility. Although I worked hard, I continued to benefit from having a boss who advocated for me. I consider this a major turning point.
Year 8: Raise to $120,000 for additional responsibilities after a coworker retired.
Year 10: Raise to $135,000
I’ve received an average of 2.5% COLA increases and now earn $145K. My boss has requested a $10,000 bonus for me this year, which I haven’t yet included because it’s still under review.
My husband earns $260,000 base salary as a VP of a large corporation (this is a very recent raise…he was at $200K previously). In addition, he can receive a performance-based bonus of 20-30%. We don’t include his bonuses in our financial planning because they are not guaranteed and because a portion is RSUs. When he receives a cash bonus, we put it towards our daughter’s college accounts and/or our home reno fund.
Education: I have a bachelors and a masters in a field unrelated to my career. My tuition was paid by scholarships/assistantships. In addition, my parents covered my living expenses during undergrad. During my first graduate degree, I worked 3 part-time jobs to cover my non-tuition expenses. I’m now enrolled in a grad program more directly related to my career. My employer encouraged me to do this program and generously allows me the time out of office. In addition, if I stay for a certain number of years, they will reimburse a portion of my tuition.
Main Job Monthly Take Home:
Monthly take home: $6,300 after taxes, retirement ($1,875) and medical/dental benefits ($110– self only)
Husband’s monthly take home: $12,560 after taxes, retirement ($1,875), and medical/dental ($400 for him and our two kids)
Section Three: Expenses
Mortgage: $2,485 for principal, interest, insurance, and taxes. We refinanced to a 15-year loan at 2.3% when rates were low
Daycare: $3,510 per month (full-time for a toddler and preschooler)
Savings contribution: $3,000-$5,000
Daughters’ 529 accounts: $2,000 ($1,000 each)
Debt payments: $700 towards my student loans. This will increase once I’m done with my degree
Donations: $3,000 annually
Transit $350-400 for husband’s commute (3x/week to NYC)
Subscriptions: $59 for Netflix, Hulu, Disney+, Duolingo, Apple Storage, and credit monitoring
Gym membership: $149 for Pure Barre
Husband’s physical therapy: $130 (portion not covered by insurance)
Car insurance: $3,200 annually. (This seems high, considering we have good records, don’t drive much, and both cars are paid off. I need to look into this)
Life Insurance: $3,100 annually
Day 1 (Saturday):
6:00 AM: Wake up. I’m doing a modular course for my graduate degree, and the class wraps up today. I study for the exam that happens this afternoon. A little after 7, I walk to a nearby coffee shop and buy a large Americano for $4.50 including tip. When I’m back at the hotel, I pack up my room since I fly home tonight. I leave a $20 tip for the housekeeping staff and scribble a thank you note on some scratch paper. On the way out, I drop my bags at the bell stand. The hotel cost is covered by tuition.
9:00: Meet with my study team to finalize a paper and presentation that’s due today. At noon, we break for lunch (also covered by tuition). I have a salad and lots of carbonated caffeine. After lunch, we have an hour-long final exam.
2:00: Final course wrap up. It’s been an intense week-long session. I learned a lot, but am so ready to head home. I walk back to the hotel to retrieve my bags. Along the way, I stop to buy an empanada ($8 including tip). Then I call an Uber to the airport ($55 including tip). While in the Uber, I talk to my husband and daughters, who are 1.5 and almost 4. Due to the time difference, it’s their bedtime and if I don’t catch them now, I’ll lose my chance. I promise them that I’ll be home when they wake up in the morning. A lot of my classmates went to dinner together before heading to the airport. On the one hand, I have FOMO because my classmates are awesome. But on the other hand, it was really important to me to talk to my family, and I know I couldn’t have done that easily in a bustling restaurant (I’ve tried, and it was a frustrating experience for everyone!).
6:00: Arrive at the airport. I check my bag ($35). Once I’m through security, I pick up some souvenirs. My hotel wasn’t in an area with good shopping options, and the class days were pretty packed anyway. I get locally made chocolate for my husband. The girls get a small stuffed animal each, and a book to share ($70 total). Then I treat myself to crab cakes and a French 75 to celebrate the end of the week ($60 including tip).
10:00: On the flight, I read until the cabin lights go out and then try to sleep. I used to be able to sleep better on red eyes, but I wake up every 15 minutes.
Day 1 Total: $252.50
Day 2 (Sunday):
6:00: Flight lands and I gather my bags and take the parking shuttle. Although I parked in an economy lot, the total was still $174. Ugh – this has been an expensive week.
7:45: Arrive home. The girls crawled into our bed and are snuggled up next to my husband. The toddler wakes up as I come into the room and the look on her face when she sees me is indescribably gratifying. Our preschooler wakes up soon after. It’s so good to be reunited with my people! We all head downstairs and have breakfast (waffles and cereal, plus a huge pot of coffee). It’s cold and rainy today and we spend the morning watching TV together.
10:00: Our toddler falls asleep for her nap, and my husband encourages me to do the same. Our preschooler is happily entertaining herself with Legos and puzzles, so I doze for a couple hours. Around 1:00, we all have turkey sandwiches for lunch. Then, I take over kid duty so my husband can finally have some time to himself. He spends the afternoon woodworking in his basement workshop.
2:00: Our preschooler’s birthday is coming up. I buy digital invites from Etsy ($12) and send them to Staples to print ($16 with a promo). They are ready in about 2 hours and we pick them up. My preschooler asks for kinetic sand at Staples and I cave in and buy it for her ($11). I constantly complain about the amount of “stuff” in our house, but to be honest, I’m guilty of contributing to the clutter. When we get home, I spend the afternoon doing crafts with the girls.
5:15: We heat up some leftovers that my inLlaws dropped off while I was gone. We do the girls’ bedtime routine a little early since everyone seems tired. Lights out by 8:00 for the girls. Then I catch up on work email and start making a list for the week. For the purposes of this money diary, my husband mentions that he spent $270 yesterday on groceries. Then I watch Succession and head to bed
Day 2 Total: $387
Day 3 (Monday):
5:08: My alarm goes off because I typically go to Pure Barre on Monday morning. I’m still jetlagged so I decide not to go today. I hadn’t actually signed up for a class because I had a feeling this would happen.
6:30: Everyone else is still asleep, so I go downstairs to make coffee and enjoy a few quiet moments to myself. When my husband and kids wake up, we all have breakfast (frozen waffles and berries for the kids. English muffins for the adults).
8:30: Drop the kids off at daycare and then get to work. I work primarily from home, so I just have to walk upstairs to my office nook. I spend the morning prepping for an important meeting tomorrow with senior leadership. I get a reminder on our phone that our toddler has a well-child visit today…usually I sync my calendars, but I totally neglected to log this on my work calendar, and it conflicts with a meeting with our chief of staff. CRAP. I debate canceling the doctor’s appointment, but decide to keep it. Our toddler is getting vaccines today and if I don’t keep the appointment, I’m not sure when I can reschedule. I apologize profusely to our COS and ask if we can reschedule. She says not to worry, and that she appreciates the extra time in her schedule…hopefully I didn’t make a bad judgment call.
1:15: I quickly eat a turkey sandwich for lunch and then pick up our toddler from daycare for her appointment. These well visits usually take 30 minutes and are covered by insurance. As luck would have it, we spend 90 minutes waiting because they are running behind. Luckily, I have snacks and activities in my purse to occupy her. To pass the time, I browse for favors and paper goods for our older daughter’s upcoming party. I end up buying paper goods, decor, and favors ($67 from Target) and iced sugar cookies ($240 from Etsy). As I type this, I realize how bananas it is to spend that much on decorated sugar cookies. Our incomes have increased pretty dramatically in the past few years, and although we haven’t increased our fixed expenses, we’ve definitely succumbed to lifestyle inflation for one-off things like this. It’s something I need to be aware of. I’m finally home around 3:30, just in time for my next call. My husband is WFH today and takes over kid duty during this call.
5:15: It’s time to pick up our older daughter from preschool, but my call is running long so my husband picks her up. For dinner, we make salads topped with roast chicken. The toddler loves salad, but our preschooler proclaims “I don’t like green leaves – I’m not a caterpillar!”. Well, okay then.
8:30: We do the girls’ bedtime routine, and then I continue prepping for tomorrow’s meeting. I wrap up around 1:00 am. While I’m working, husband preps two meals that just need to be reheated sometime later in the week. Good night!
Day 3 Total: $307
Day 4 (Tuesday):
7:30: Kids and I sleep in a bit this morning. My husband left home around 5:45 since he’s going into the office, so the three of us are on our own. For breakfast, the toddler has toast and berries. The preschooler has bran cereal and a frozen waffle. I eat their scraps, washed down with coffee.
9:15: I drop the kids off at daycare a little late this morning. Then I get working and practice the presentation I’m giving at 11:00
12:05: Call is over and I think it went as well as could be expected. I make myself a turkey sandwich for lunch. Then I go to the post office to mail a birth certificate request for our youngest daughter’s passport application. The cost for the birth certificate is $50. I also spend $15 at the post office to mail the envelope and buy stamps. Then it’s back to work.
5:10: Pick the girls up from school. My husband gets home around 6:45. Dinner tonight is a tofu and broccoli stir fry with rice. I don’t cook much, but I make this meal weekly and it’s everyone’s favorite. The secret is that I use soy sauce that is seasoned for seafood. I can’t explain what’s different, but the taste is so much different than standard soy sauce.
7:30: Bathtime and bed for the girls. I text with a mom from daycare whose kids are the same age as ours. We arrange a playdate for an upcoming weekend. I’m hopeful that she and I will develop a friendship – making friends is hard when you’re an adult!
9:10: I debate doing schoolwork or “work work.” Schoolwork wins tonight…I spend about two hours prepping a case study.
Day 4 Total: $65
Day 5 (Wednesday):
5:30: Wake up and start working. I still have a lot of deliverables to catch up on. Husband leaves as usual to commute into the city.
7:00: I get an email and text message that daycare had to close today due to unforeseen circumstances. There was an issue with their plumbing that impacts the whole building. Oh no – I immediately feel a pit in my stomach. I really can’t afford this today, especially because I am out this Friday for another day of class. Although our preschooler is pretty independent, our toddler needs constant supervision. She’s always a moment away from jumping off a couch, climbing on a table, or otherwise causing herself bodily harm. My husband has multiple meetings with his division president today so he can’t realistically come home to help. Argh. I feed us all breakfast and prepare myself for a difficult day. I send my boss an email to let him know the situation, but promise to stay on top of my work after hours as needed. I also log a half day of PTO in the payroll system…I figure I can probably be about 50% productive today.
10:00: Our toddler falls asleep for a nap, so I frantically send out emails and run reports. Our preschooler watches shows on her tablet.
12:15: Toddler is up from her nap. Our poor preschooler has been on her tablet for too long and her eyes are glazed over. I decide to take the girls out for lunch to break up the day. We go to Jersey Mikes since it’s nearby and fast. The girls each have a kids meal and the toddler is delighted that it includes a kids cup. I have an Italian sub ($29). We eat outside and the preschooler hums and loudly proclaims "I love Jersey Mike's!"
1:30: We get back home and I jump on an internal call. Thankfully the girls are well behaved and don’t cause any disruptions, beyond waving hello at the start of the call.
3:00 I have another call and the girls are again on their best behavior. PTL. Maybe I’m just lucky, or maybe it’s that I bribed them with cookies.
4:45: I wrap up the workday a little early. I take the girls on a walk since the weather is nice. When we get back inside, they immediately melt down. The toddler wants to be held constantly, which is a challenge because she weighs 24 pounds. The preschooler is thrashing, spitting at me, and throwing toys. I resist a really strong urge to scream or cry or break something or hide in the bathroom – maybe all at once. Instead, I heat up one of the meals my husband made earlier this week. When our preschooler calms down, she asks if I still love her when she’s bad. She’s been asking this question a lot recently, and it makes me wonder if it’s just a phase, or if she needs more reassurance from us. Either way, it's heartbreaking to know she worries about this.
7:30: Husband had a late meeting, so he gets home later than normal. We do the girls bedtime and bathtime routines. We get another note from daycare saying that the plumbing issue is, unfortunately, still unresolved. We’ll get a tuition credit, but they will be closed another day. Husband and I talk through logistics. We agree that he’ll go into the city again tomorrow and I’ll handle the kids. His company is in the middle of a major reorg and it’s important for him to be there in person. We decide to ask his parents if they are available to help tomorrow. Between work, the kids, and my grad program, sometimes I feel like the only thing we talk about is logistics. It’s been at least 6 months since we’ve been on a date.
10:00: I catch up on work, and also prep for school this coming weekend. I go to bed a little after 1:00.
Day 5 Total: $29
Day 6 (Thursday):
5:45: Husband is up and out of the house at his normal time. I wake up and run some financial reports while I have the chance.
7:30: Kids are awake. While they eat breakfast I pack their activity bags and snacks since we’re going to my in-laws today. They are semi-retired and often help when we have childcare hiccups. They are truly a godsend. They live about an hour away and we arrive at their house a little after 10:00. On the way, I fill my car up with gas ($52).
12:30: The girls are having a blast with my in-laws. We take a break for lunch, which is chicken nuggets and hummus for the girls. I eat their scraps and also have some Greek yogurt.
4:15: I have a full afternoon of calls, but it goes smoothly thanks to the grandparents. We leave a few minutes after 5:00 and both girls fall asleep before we reach the first traffic light. This makes for a peaceful drive home. Traffic is heavy so we get home around 6:30. I open the mail, and find a surprise medical bill for $572. This is for the toddler’s trip to the ER…14 months ago! This is the first bill we are getting and honestly it had completely slipped my mind. She had a triple infection and ended up severely dehydrated. Seeing this bill dredges up all sorts of unpleasant memories. I’m grateful we have the means to pay this without issue, and I’m grateful she is healthy. I understand it's a privilege to pay a bill like this without thinking twice.
6:45: Husband arrives home. We reheat a pasta dish he made earlier this week and have a salad on the side. The girls are beat today, so we skip bathtime and let them go straight to bed. Thankfully, daycare can reopen tomorrow. I feel like a weight’s been lifted from my shoulders, especially since I have class tomorrow.
9:00: I have a call with my school study team to work on our group project. It lasts for about an hour.
10:30: Husband and I discuss buying a swing set for our backyard. He’s narrowed it down to two choices, and they’re both awesome: three swings, a rock wall, slide, and clubhouse area. I think they both look great, so I leave the final decision in his hands. The total with shipping and tax ends up being $1760. We considered buying a pre-assembled swing set to save time, but similar models cost nearly $6K. He’s handy, so he said he’d prefer to assemble it himself.
Day 6 Total: $2,384
Day 7 (Friday):
6:15: I have class today so I eat breakfast and get dressed early. I tend to wear a lot of athleisure when working from home. Today I put on a structured ponte dress and hastily apply Tarte makeup to give my skin some color. Every time I make the effort to get dressed, I'm reminded that I really do feel more confident when I look put together. I get to school around 9:00 for my first class.
12:00: Break in my schedule for lunch. I eat a salad and some kind of chicken dish, while catching up with classmates. For dessert, I have a huge bowl of berries. Lots more coffee to keep me awake and engaged during class.
7:00: Classes are over for the day. I pay parking ($17) and am on my way. I get home at 8:30, in time to do bedtime with my girls. Husband made veggie quesadillas with black beans and guac, which I eat once the girls are asleep. I check my work email to make sure nothing is on fire. Then my husband and I watch an episode of “What We Do In the Shadows” and turn in for the night.
Day 7 Total: $17
Food + Drink: $371.50
Fun / Entertainment: $2,106
Home + Health: $572
Clothes + Beauty: $0
Weekly Total: $3537.5
Reflections: Some of this week’s expenditures were unusual: the swing set, my travel expenses, and that old ER bill are not part of our normal recurring expenses. However, the rest of this week's spending was pretty typical. I realize a lot of this diary revolved around sorting out childcare disruptions…honestly, that takes so much mental and logistical energy on a weekly basis. Writing this diary also made me realize how little time my husband and I spend together. Often we feel like we’re in survival mode, but we need to be more intentional about prioritizing our relationship.

2023.05.30 06:34 EraOfTheElementals The Era of the Elementals - an Avatar the Last Airbender & DND inspired TTRPG now on Kickstarter
| || | submitted by EraOfTheElementals to CrowdfundedBoardgames [link] [comments]
Like many, i'm a huge fan of Avatar The Last Airbender, as well as Dungeons and Dragons. I feel that we need more Element themed dungeon crawling tabletop RPG's, and so I made: The Era of the Elementals
The plot is simple. The players are stolen from Earth and taken to the planet of the Elementals. From there the players can choose one of 16 starting elements
. As the campaign progresses they can learn more elements.
A big theme of the game is simplicity. I wanted to keep things simple for newer players. I also did a Q&A interview about the game. In it we talk about details such as the games mechanics/the cultures of the elementals. It can be found here: The 16 elements that the player can start with
Each Element gives the player a unique ability!

I'm home from my 3rd ever wrestling show, all at MVP Arena, and I'm just thinking about how tonight's crowd was just as great as the other times! I've seen airings where the crowds are just lifeless, but I feel like the Albany fans keep the energy from start to finish and it really makes going to the shows worth it.
Thank you all for making my night out even better, it was a lot of fun shouting along with and against you!!

2023.05.30 06:30 Boring_Bill2430 Revisited Bill's "Levels of Losing" on this wonderful evening
This column is one of Bill's most underrated works in my opinion and applies beautifully to the iconic loss his Celtics took tonight: a quintessential "This Can't Be Happening Game" with a special bonus of Miami overcoming the dreaded "Dead Man Walking Game." Couldn't happen to a more deserving fanbase, thanks Miami. https://www.espn.com/espn/page2/story?page=simmons/071001
"This Can't Be Happening Game
" Definition: The sibling of the Full-Fledged Butt-Kicking. ... You're supposed to win, you expect to win, the game is a mere formality. ... Suddenly your team falls behind, your opponents are fired up, the clock is ticking and it dawns on you for the first time, "Oh, my God, this can't be happening." Personal Memory
: Game 7 of the '82 Eastern Conference finals, when the Celts rallied from a 3-1 deficit to force a seventh game against Philly at home (just like they did the previous spring, when they eventually won the title). Not only had the Celts never lost a Game 7 at the Garden, during a Game 5 comeback that Wednesday, Boston fans chanted, "See you Sunday! See you Sunday!" at the Sixers' bench (inferring that the C's would win Friday's Game 6 in Philly, which they did). Needless to say, our confidence had surged to dizzying heights. It never even entered our minds that we might lose. I remember seeing fans walking around the Garden wearing white sheets and dressed as "The Ghosts of Garden Past" -- an unreal atmosphere, certainly an impossible place for Philly to win. Um ... right? Unfortunately, Andrew Toney (one of the truly underrated NBA stars of my lifetime) had other ideas; nobody on the Celts could guard him. And you could feel that twinge of "Uh-oh" in the air, as we slowly realized things weren't working out like we had planned. Wait a second ... this can't be happening ... "Dead Man Walking Game" Definition: Applies to any playoff series in which your team remains "alive," but they just suffered a loss so catastrophic and so harrowing that there's no possible way they can bounce back. ... Especially disheartening because you wave the white flag mentally, but there's a tiny part of you still holding out hope for a miraculous momentum change. ... So you've given up, but you're still getting hurt, if that makes sense. ... Just for the record, the 2002 Nets and 2005 Astros proved that you can fight off The Dead Man Walking Game, but it doesn't happen often.

2023.05.30 06:30 minnesotanthrowaway Is it possible to only foster children who attend a specific school?
I'm in my 20s, and I have been interested in becoming a foster parent for several years now. However, I have been waiting until I have a stable career, financial independence, and a home with enough space for extra people. Now I finally have all of those things, but it turns out my partner, whom I live with, is not interested in fostering. Out of respect for his wishes, I dropped the subject and decided not to pursue foster licensure.
However, I work as a teacher. Let's call my school Eagles Elementary. Lately, one of my students has been clinging onto me at the end of the day and begging me to take her home with me instead of sending her home with her parent. Her family currently has an open CPS case, and it occurred to me that, if DCF were to remove my student and her sibling from their parents, it would be preferable for them to stay with someone they are already familiar with than to be placed with strangers. Same goes for any other student I may have in the future in such a situation.
So I asked my partner, what if we got licensed to foster, but only fostered children and siblings of children who attend Eagles Elementary? He seemed amicable to this compromise, but it is largely hypothetical because I'm not sure whether or not it's possible to arrange such a thing.
Is it feasible to only accept foster placements who are affiliated with a specific school?
(Located in Wisconsin if that helps)

2023.05.30 06:28 Virtual-Travel-2373 Should I (19M) forgive my ex (18F) for infidelity after 4 months together?
Context: I met a girl at a club in January, and we started seeing each other two or so weeks later. Where we live, it's normal to unofficially date for a while before one person (typically the man) asks their partner to officially date. Essentially we were "dating" for almost four months; I met her parents, spent a lot of time with her, and was about to officially ask her to date me before the incident in question. Our relationship was very stable up until this point with no big arguments, grudges, or other incidents of infidelity, and I was looking to introduce her to my family as well. We also go to the same uni where she is one semester below me and both our classes are quite large (90-100 students each). Additionally, our uni does not offer dorms, so both of us live with our parents in the same city since our families already live here.
First off, I'd like to start by saying that I understand that both in terms of the infidelity in question and the time my ex and I were together, this isn't as serious as some of the other posts related to infidelity. That being said, for reasons I'll explain later on, I don't have anyone in my life who knows the full context of the situation and I also need a place to get all of it off my chest, so here we go. This is my first-ever post, so I apologize in advance if this is too long or hard to read, and there's a TL;DR at the bottom.
The incident in question happened this past Friday (a couple of days after my birthday and a week before our final exams). She went to a bar with her friends before heading to a club where she got drunk and kissed a guy (who we'll call Steve) from her class at uni.
I know 'Steve' is, as she kissed him at a party we both went to right before we became monogamous; a moment I saw myself and nearly made me give up on pursuing the relationship further. She would have occasional run-ins with him between the party and last Friday, but they weren't close, and from what she told me they weren't flirtatious at all during these interactions (which were few and far between). She used to tease me with Steve because in her words he was the only person that affected me from her past and she wasn't interested in him whatsoever.
According to her, the kiss lasted only for a moment and wasn't hot or heavy. As soon as she kissed him she called me crying, told me what happened, and headed home. I was feeling kind of tired and since our exams are coming up this Thursday, I stayed home. I took a quick nap and woke up with her call. She was crying and frantic, so much so that I could barely make out what she was saying and thought someone had forced himself upon her.
I went over to her house where she told me what happened: she had kissed Steve, the same guy that nearly broke us apart before and all it took was for him to insist a little on the kiss for her to go for it. I couldn't wrap my head around it at first; I felt a mix of confusion, anger, and more notably pain and sadness. All I could make out at the time was "I'm going home, I don't know what to say right now. And you tell Steve that I better not see him anywhere outside of campus" That last part sounded very out of character for me, as most people who know me can attest to the fact that I'm very level-headed and kind. That being said, Steve was directly involved in two of the most hurtful moments of my life recently, and he knew that she was seeing someone (even who I was) when he approached her on Friday. My threat was not a sort of macho-esque need to assert myself over him, but rather a warning that I'm not sure I'd be able to control myself if I saw him because he embodies all the anger and pain I currently feel.
As I headed home I was bombarded with messages from her, apologizing and telling me she loves me (something I'd already felt, but that neither of us had mustered the courage to say to each other). I walked into my room and hit my wall several times, leaving bruises on my hands and waking up my dogs and my dad. He came into my room and as I told him what happened he consoled me as I cried and told me I can either forgive her and continue the relationship, or break up. I slept on it and decided that the logical move was to break up.
I went to her house and told her I couldn't forgive her, much less trust her after what had happened. We both cried and talked for about half an hour, and I went home completely broken. I then told my closest friends about it, and after a reinforcement class for one of my subjects, I called them separately. One told me that the situation sucks, but that I should focus my pain to fuel my workouts and that we could get girls if I came to visit him over the summer. Another told me that out of all the people cheating could happen to (including himself), he couldn't believe that it happened to me because in his eyes I'm one of the people who least deserves such a thing to happen to them. Both of them concluded that it wasn't as bad because the relationship wasn't too long and I can look forward to being single again.
As I mentioned previously, no one in my life knows the full context of the relationship; my house is undergoing renovations so I couldn't invite my gf to my house, and my parents wanted to meet with her for the first time without extended family, both of which never coincided in our time together. On top of that, I didn't talk about her much to my friends or family; my family respects my privacy and since all my friends were single during this period and I hadn't had any fights or problems with her, I didn't want to flaunt my relationship on them, as when I was single I'd feel a little bad about myself when my friends told me about how well their relationships were when I'd never had one.
My relationship with my ex was really good, as I mentioned we had no big arguments, but that wasn't because we hadn't encountered hardships, but rather that both of us were able to communicate openly and honestly. We were able to open up about our insecurities and share all sides of our personalities and our quirks. The only thing that bothered me slightly was that she sometimes hung out with a guy she'd kissed somewhat recently, as well as her interactions with Steve. That being said she wasn't close friends with either one of them, I didn't want to be possessive or toxic, and up until that point I had no prior reason to believe she'd be unfaithful so I chalked it up to my own insecurities, and kept it to myself. Since the incident, she's mostly respected my need for space, even if her friends haven't (supposedly not at her request).
Back to the present, I felt absolutely miserable from Friday night to Sunday morning, tossing and turning about what had happened. I woke up on Sunday to some messages from her saying she wrote me a card that I could pick up at her lobby or have a delivery boy bring to my house. I didn't mind heading over there so I picked it up with the doorman and went to a friend's house to study and finish up a final project. I didn't tell anyone about the card, neither did I open it until I headed home. I stayed for around 10 hours in my friend's house wrapping everything up, and while it was a necessary break from all the turmoil, the letter was gnawing at the back of my head the entire time.
As soon as I got home I opened and read the letter. I won't divulge what was said in it, as even though this is an anonymous post I'd still prefer to keep its contents private for me and her. Nevertheless, it was very moving, and it made me reevaluate my decision on top of my continued feelings for her.
All of that brings us to today: I just finished one of the best workouts of my life, listening to my saddest playlist throughout and passing bruise cream on my hands (they've started to hurt when I move them). I thanked her for the letter and told her that regardless of what happens between us, we should talk things out after the end of our exams, as right now we both need to focus on passing our classes.
I feel heartbroken, confused, and hurt, but at the same time I miss her and our time together. She was my first relationship and realistically the first time a girl truly cared for me besides my family and friends (I've never gone past one-night stands or hooking up at parties other than a couple dates). I'm worried that I'd be making a mistake by being with her again, as it goes against most of the advice I've received and I could just be head over heels because this is my first serious relationship. Furthermore, I'm also worried that because of what's happened I'll have trust issues - be it with her or someone else - that'll make things toxic. What should I do?
TL;DR: My girlfriend of four months kissed a guy at a bar. I broke up with her but I'm not sure it was the right decision because of how special our time together was. Should I give her another chance?

2023.05.30 06:28 Putrid_Heart_7178 Need Stick Vacuum Recs - Pet Friendly, 90% hardwood, based in US
I am overwhelmed with information on how to decide which vacuum is best for our needs.
Currently, we have an approx 1400 sq.ft. home, with a mixture of hardwood and tile & 1 high-pile area rug. We are pet friendly with cats that shed tremendously.
We need a vacuum that is compact and portable with decent suction on our shag rug. We have zero storage space in our home currently, which is why we desire a stick vacuum and not a typical upright vacuum. Other features that are desired: LED light, slim fit (to navigate under our couch) and a replaceable battery. I’ve read through several posts and have seen that Sharks are not well recommended due to longevity. However, I am not as concerned with longevity so much as fitting our current needs. We hope to move in a year, at which point we will invest in an upright vacuum.
Ideal budget is under $500. We are based in the US.

2023.05.30 06:26 babywiccan I (21f) hit my boyfriend (22m) in the arm
So my boyfriend and I are normally pretty good but I think I messed everything up.
There was a spider that was about to like fall on my head but he managed to get it for me. Im terrified of spiders. He joked about it and kept joking that he was going to put one on me. He knew I was hating every second. He eventually stopped and I thought that was it. The next night he starts joking about it again and started pretending his fingers were spider legs crawling over me. I just swatted his hand away and told him to stop. He kept doing it and I went to push his arm back and smacked his arm. It wasn't really hard or anything but it was kinda loud and while it didn't hurt, it must have still not been nice. He was really upset with me for a while but I tried my best to be there. I apologised profusely and I let him have his space. I sent him an apology message, got him his favourite snacks and stuff. I understood why this upset him (previous trauma) and tried my best to help and asked him if there was anything he needed. We were okay later in the day but I could tell he was still upset. I leave to go home and when he woke up from his nap, he was in a terrible mood and was very upset and annoyed at me. I tried my best to be understanding and while it was upsetting, I still get why he was feeling this way. Later, I woke from a nightmare and I messaged him and he told me to go back to sleep because it was late. I told him about the nightmare and his response was 'wtf...' and 'try watching some tiktoks before bed' and we always put 'xxx' at the end of messages. I asked him why he was acting like this and he said 'are you being serious?'. I told him I understand why you're upset but all I wanted was maybe 'I'm sorry babe hope you're okay xxx' or something. He still was being fairly blunt and stuff afterwards and I had to beg him to put 'xxx' at the end of messages. He was fine earlier on, just upset. I get being upset or angry etc but I don't think it was great of him to be so blunt when I was clearly very upset. Am I just being insensitive?

2023.05.30 06:26 _Lost_In_Space Werewolf?
| || |
I don’t even know what to say, other than the fact I’m thoroughly confused. This animatronic Halloween prop has been up at this house since last Halloween. I don’t know why it’s still up, but I’m curious if anyone else has driven by this house and seen it too. Allegedly, the house next door to this one is abandoned… probably some weird conspiracy going on involving this werewolf. If you can’t see it, look above/behind the white car. Apologies for poor photo quality, had to take the photos from the backseat in a moving car. submitted by _Lost_In_Space to Katy [link] [comments]
Did some googling and it’s apparently the “Immortal Werewolf” from Home Depot.
2023.05.30 06:25 velascono Is my logic wrong?
The universe has magnificent features such as galaxies, stars, and black holes. Now imagine the universe only created animals and not humans. Animals will live there life without ever glaring to the galaxy and will never be conscious of studying themselves or earthly things and space without the interest of knowledge and beauty.
Well somehow the universe created humans for the purposes of being studied. The universes creation of the beatiful things in earth and in space needed to have a fan base that would study and appreciate its beauty. Humans are capable of doing what the universe wants.. the universe wants to be appreciated..
Ever heard the phrase, " it would be a waist of space if no more humans exist outside of our solar system."
Well" it would be a waist of beauty if no one to apreciate it, when it is created."
