Families come in all shapes and sizes, born of blood or of choice. Few families fit the “Leave It To Beaver” mold and every family comes with unique challenges and benefits. This is a community of people who share parenting advice, friendship advice, occasional recipes, and sometimes straight up gossip. We’re not afraid to tell someone they’re off-base or that they should reframe their thinking, but overall, we’re a fairly accepting group.

2023.05.30 06:09 ThouHastForsakenMe My dad is impossible to please

I’m mixed and my dad is Asian (Cambodian) and he is impossible to make happy.
He constantly bitches about the house being filthy (leaves wrappers everywhere) or the food being to fatty or salty (eats it anyway). He called me a dumbass for taking midol for my cramps, saying how it was poisoning my liver and that it can’t be that bad (he took Advil for his sciatica). He’s lazy and refused to mow the lawn for 2 weeks while I swept and vacuumed the kitchen, dining room, hallway, and every inch of the living room both times he was supposed to do it.
He name calls me, saying I’m an ungrateful shit, a bitch, lazy, a disappointment, stupid, dumbass, retard, etc. When he would give me homework over the summer (even though I passed class), he would yell at me for not understanding a problem he already explained to the point where I would cry (ever since I was 3 or 4).
He used to force feed me meals until I vomited and then yelled at me. My relatives from his side would always poke at me and tell me to eat more. After finally being around a comfortable weight and enjoying the foods I eat, he would say how I would become a fat adult because I snacked past 8 pm.
When I scored a 4 out of 5 on my AP English Language and Composition, he said, “if you studied more you would have gotten a 5.” Less than a quarter achieve a 4. When I scored a 99% on a math test (I’m really bad at math, I’d be lucky to get a 60%), he said to study more and to get 100% next time.
He has been drilling it into my head that I needed a perfect grade in my class (I currently have a 3.72 for senior year), my mom revealed that he had a 2.5 gpa in college. I’ve only heard him say “good job” or “I’m proud of you” like once or twice.
Lastly, he constantly invalidates my feelings. I once confessed how I was stressed about the crap tone of homework I had during the quarantine, to which he replied that there are people waiting to be in America, that I was lucky to have a roof over my head, that he had to drive himself and work from an early age, etc.
My parents’ treatment is the sole reason why I think about sending them to home, picking a college or home far away so that they visit less, and other things I’m too embarrassed to talk about.

2023.05.30 06:09 BrightPurpleLilies Ruining My Favorite Hobby

Today, I tried my hand at baking a marble cake. I made a simple 9x9 vanilla and chocolate marble cake. I made a couple mistakes but, in the end, it turned out pretty alright. I should mention that I absolutely love chocolate, like adore it to no end. My stepfather does not like it. He's complained to me before that I bake too many chocolate things. He thinks it's childish to enjoy it and has told me at some point in my life that I would outgrow liking chocolate (it's been years since that happened and I still enjoy just as much as I did before).
So, I left the cake out on the table after frosting it since I wasn't really craving anything sweet yet. He comes knocking on my door asking if the cake is done and if "someone" could eat it (his actual phrasing of that question). I said sure since the whole point of baking is for people to eat desserts. A few minutes later I go in the kitchen and notice that a huge, uneven chunk was taken out of the square. It bugged me but cutting it properly isn't really a problem.
As I'm cutting a piece for myself, he comes into the kitchen to ask if I want the chocolate part of the cake that he avoided eating. I said no of course. He then starts to complain to me about how the chocolate is too sweet and how he just wanted the vanilla parts. Now, I would've understood if a toddler said that to me, but this is a grown man with fully functioning eyeballs talking to me. It's not like he didn't see that there was chocolate in the cake either. I left it to cool on the stove for about twenty minutes and in that time he stood in the kitchen washing dishes. Simply put, there was no way for him to miss the cake with obvious chocolate in it.
The pan was maybe a foot away from him and the giant patches of chocolate were on full display. There was absolutely no reason for him to be shocked at the presence of chocolate in that cake.
Oh, and, of course, it gets worse. Instead of being a normal adult who would just be done eating cake at that point, he carves out a vanilla section with the spoon he's been eating with and puts the chunk of chocolate cake in that spot. And to top it all off, he folds over the foil I frosted the cake on, thus ruining the frosting.
It might seem silly for me to get worked up over a dumb little cake but baking means a lot to me. I'm getting a lot better at it and I feel a huge sense of pride every time I make something that I think turned out good. So seeing someone be so disrespectful to that cake really upset me. I have so many things I want to try but I get irrationally angry thinking about something like this happening again. It makes me not even want to bake anymore unless I'm leaving the house with my food.

2023.05.30 06:09 ShesSpeakingNow too anxious to even stand up after nose surgery

on friday (currently monday night as i type out this post) i got some functional work done on my nose to hopefully improve my breathing and maybe even sleep. it’s not anything i’d consider painful, just sore enough to be annoying. today was what i assume will be the worst of it, i’ve had trouble opening my mouth enough to even take my meds. anyway none of this is even the problem. aside from being so antsy and bored, feeling gross from having restrictions on showering and especially washing my hair, i was hit with such intense paranoia yesterday that won’t leave me alone. im suddenly TERRIFIED of doing absolutely anything. i don’t stand, when i need to i literally crawl around on the floor. im petrified of walking 10 feet to the bathroom, convinced that im going to trip / slip / fall and hit my nose on something. the fear of slipping in the shower is intense. i spent the first two days being irresponsibly active, i didn’t think much of it until i forced myself to chill out. since then i can’t kick this anxiety. can anyone relate / provide any tips or advice??

2023.05.30 06:08 tangerine_dd how to let a guy know i’m not into him in a nice way when he won’t take a hint

so i (16f) am acquaintances with this guy in my physics class. i’ve always been nothing but friendly to him because i think he’s nice and sort of funny, and he’s friends with some of my friends. but recently he’s been talking to me on one of my socials through DMs (which is fine), and i’ve been reciprocating in a friendly manner. we’ve mainly just been talking about school, work, etc - it was all friendly until around about last week where he asked me to hang out with him one on one. i said no, sorry, i’m busy (because i’m just not into him - he isn’t my type, and when it comes to teenage guys they’ll only ever ask you to hang out one on one if they’re into you!!). he then proceeds to ask about the next day, to which i say the same: no, sorry, i’m busy. i also don’t try to organise another time, and just leave it at that. yet he asks AGAIN, if i’m free the day after that. of course i said no sorry, i’m busy then too. but then he says: “okay, maybe next week then?” to which i just said “oh ahah we’ll see”. he won’t take the hint!! i saw him in physics again today and he gave me a piece of candy (he was literally waiting for me at the entrance of the classroom 🤦‍♀️), and one of his friends made remarks about him being a rizz master or something like that, which got rid of any doubt in my mind that he didn’t have a crush on me. how do i let this guy down as kindly as possible!?? i really don’t want to hurt his feelings but the truth is is that i’m just not attracted to him at all…
tl;dr how do i reject my classmate who won’t take a hint in the nicest way possible :,)

2023.05.30 06:08 Time-to-Dine Washer either shakes violently or struggles to drain

Having issues with the laundry machine.
During spin cycles, it will shake violently and move across the floor. This happens on big loads and small loads. I have made sure the load is distributed evenly, yet it still shakes violently. Sometimes it knocks itself off its shock absorbers.
If it doesn’t shake violently then it doesn’t spin and drain properly, leaving clothes soaking wet. I have to put it on one or two more drain and spin cycles to get the clothes less soaked. Sometimes it shakes violently on another spin/drain cycle, sometimes it operates like normal.
How can I fix this without replacing the whole unit?

2023.05.30 06:08 spaghettificati0n A woman at sober living blew a .002 and then tested positive for alcohol on a UA. How likely this is only from Kobucha?

She moved in two days ago. I immediately noticed glassy eyes when she came home today and was sus, but that could easily be from exhuastion. Her excuse she's sticking to is that she had kombucha that has .05% alcohol. When in a new sober living that doesn't even allow mouth wash with alcohol, one is expected to be especially mindful about what is consumed anyway, so whether or not her story is true, a failed UA is a failed UA, so she is being asked to leave for 7 days. She hasn't stopped talking since she was asked to leave and given an hour and I'm not sure if she's trying to prove she's not intoxicated or what, but she seems scatterbrained and caffinated. I feel like the kombcha excuse was one she had ready because with a simple google search I saw that it can possibly affected BAC, however I would like to know how likely this would be, as I'm not buying it.

2023.05.30 06:08 Super-Kale-2048 Scary cat while on mushrooms help

A friend and I did a lot of mushrooms on a campsite we rented in someone’s backyard.
I took a decent amount, and we were hanging out in hammocks, sharing about our lives, having a really positive time.
Then it gets dark, still all good.
Then a few bats fly over our heads in the pavilion we’re in. A little startled but all good.
THEN, the owner’s cat comes into the pavilion. It’s super super friendly and rubbing up on me. I’m kinda uncomfortable. Then it literally won’t leave us alone, trying to climb up on the hammock, and staring at us.
It even followed us to our tent when we fell asleep and got under the rain fly and stared at us. TERRIFYING.
So obviously I’m tweaking a bit, and sadly ruining my friend’s trip a bit too. It’s the next day and I feel shook, anxious, exhausted from being extremely scared and anxious for hours yesterday.
Any advice for how to move through this? Nervous it’ll impact my already not great mental health, I went to some dark places when I was scared
Does anyone have any similar scenarios?
It’a worth noting that I’ve had ego death huge trips before and handled them so well.

2023.05.30 06:07 Savage_hamsandwich Do I report a truck driver for running me off the road?

So I am at an impasse morally here. I was driving home tonight and got run off the road by a big rig truck. So much so that I had to drive up and onto the grass median between the lanes of traffic. I don't want to ruin this guy's life but also I feel like this isn't something that should be overlooked. So I want this driver's peers to judge him, is this something that happens accidentally a lot? Is this type of negligence something you (truck drivers) want on the road? I have camera footage of both the license plate, and the serial on the back of the container and also the company name. I will provide context here:
I am driving at 10 pm down a 2 lane road (both going the same direction), and am in the far left lane as there's a zipper merge into the far right lane coming up. Then out of nowhere a big rig shows up to my right after we pass the merge, then the truck starts creeping into my lane so I give a lil beep. Still creeping, so I lay on the horn. Then at this point he's halfway into my lane and I'm driving half on the gravel shoulder and ram myself up onto the grass median to avoid me and my tiny car (Hyundai Veloster) from being crushed under this truck. Still laying on the horn. Now this probably happened all in the span of 10 seconds but it felt like ages in my brain. The truck then speeds up to around 60 mph (45 mph road) I followed for a bit to get the information off the truck then turned off the main road.
What do you think? I want to report him to both his company and also the DOT. But I don't want to put someone else into a horrendous situation for what might be a small, honest mistake. I just get hung up on the fact that as far as I know I handled the situation (both my position in the lanes and my warning him) exactly how I should have and he could have killed me if I myself wasn't paying close attention.
Side note: there was no other exit after he merged, so there seemed to be no reason for him to be so urgent

Due to some family and personal issues, I need to leave my current state and start my life for my own sake.
I have some money saved to get a car and i'm looking at trying to become an EMT with a local Fire Department or Ambulance Service that can pay for my certification and give me some form of income to better my living conditions while doing a job I want to pursue and gain experience if I ever wanted (and afford) to go elsewhere.
I have some friends that could possibly help me find a car and park it on their driveway if need be and was curious to see what y'all have to offer in terms of advice.

  1. Crazy that Riot is not willing to talk it out at all
  2. Hilarious to see LCS could possibly be fielding gold players this week. Why would TSM possibly want to leave this? /s
  3. Certain people who were quick to drag TSM for pulling out of the LCS are mysteriously radio silent today
Do we finally see TSM Roseking?

So I'm currently playing this on ps5 and I'm trying to finish it before it leaves ps plus. I've been looking for a chill game to play alongside harder games and this game is perfect for that. But I've ran into a problem where the game will just randomly take over and perform actions all on its own. A temporary fix I found was to press the ps button and it'll sometimes fix it, but sometimes it won't work no matter what I do, and ill have to restart the game. I really want to continue playing the game, but this is making it borderline unplayable ): any fixes?

2023.05.30 06:07 anon_stranger98 Betrayal in Old School RuneScape: A Tale of Stolen Dreams and Broken Trust

Betrayal in Old School RuneScape: A Tale of Stolen Dreams and Broken Trust
Hey fellow adventurers,
I'm sharing a heart-wrenching story today that took place within the captivating world of Old School RuneScape. Just a couple of months ago, I returned to this incredible game, with a bank value of around 600 million gp and the Tombs of Amascut (ToA) in full swing. During my journey, I had the privilege of crossing paths with some truly amazing gamers who graciously invited me to join their elite 410 invo raids, despite my noob status. Little did I know that this newfound camaraderie would take a devastating turn.
One day, a generous gamer from this group offered to lend me their valuable gear while they were away. I was truly awestruck by their kind gesture, as it demonstrated the warmth and generosity(n't?) of this gaming community. After a couple of days, I returned the borrowed gear, grateful for the opportunity it had given me to grow and excel in the the raid. I poured my heart and soul into countless raids, pushing myself to the limit, and ultimately earning more valuable loot, including my Best-in-Slot (BIS) gear.
Sadly, the gamer who had previously lent me their gear experienced a stroke of misfortune, losing everything due to high-risk activities. Remembering their past support in my times of need, I extended a helping hand without hesitation, just as they had done for me. On the first occasion, they repaid my trust by returning the borrowed items, further strengthening our bond.
However, today's events took an unexpected and heart-wrenching turn. During a Discord call with this gamer, they approached me with a request to borrow my hard-earned gear, citing a need to make some quick ToA money. Fueled by the memories of their past kindness, I happily agreed, naively believing that our friendship would endure any challenge. Little did I know that this act of trust would be shattered so cruelly.
As the hours went by, I attempted to reach out to them, convinced that a technical issue with Discord was causing the communication breakdown. It wasn't until later that I discovered the bitter truth: they had blocked not only me but also everyone on our Discord server before vanishing into thin air, taking my valuable items with them. When I desperately tried to confront them online, they simply logged out, leaving me feeling utterly betrayed.
So, I address this message directly to you, Xemnax, the one who callously abused my trust. I implore you to do the right thing and return what rightfully belongs to me. The gear I entrusted to you represents countless hours of hard work and sacrifice. It is not yours to keep, and your actions have caused immeasurable pain and disappointment.
I share my story not only to seek justice but also to bring awareness to the Old School RuneScape community. Let us stand united against such deceitful acts and ensure that no one else falls victim to this kind of betrayal.
TL;DR: Xemnax, a person I considered a friend in the Old School RuneScape betrayed my trust by stealing the valuable gear I loaned them. These items hold significant in-game value to me, and I worked tirelessly to obtain them. I'm devastated by this betrayal and hope that by sharing my story, justice can be served and others can avoid similar experiences.
PD. Both discord names belong to him @Xemnax @ChaoticOreo. My ingame name is: I Got Pet

Piercing apprenticeships
21f been trying to get my foot in the door for nearly two years with very few shops offering apprenticeship work near me. Finally got a response from a licensed piercer and met next day. Anyone know the standard when it comes to starting? Pictures are of paper work given. Options start at 2000 up front for 12 months with 35% from all piercing done by me. 350 a month for 24 months with 35%. Both with a non compete agreement for three years. The third option is 1000 a month for 12 months with 50% given back and no non compete. Should I take my chances elsewhere? Worried I am too young and eager

2023.05.30 06:06 RyuuAraragi Kevin takes a joyride

I was listening to Reddit stories on YouTube, wondered about whether or not I had a story to share, and remembered this story of my old coworker.
For a bit of backstory: I manage a small restaurant under a larger company. Sometime in early 2022, one of my coworkers receives a company car, nearly crashes it into another car on the way from the dealership to the restaurant, and gets traumatized by the absolute chewing out he receives from the older lady he almost hit. It goes without saying that he currently avoids driving like the plague. So now, we just have a car sitting in our tiny parking lot. It's a shame, since it was a pretty nice looking car, a Hyundai Elantra I believe.
Around this time, I'm getting into basic car maintenance, such as changing oil, headlights, coolant, and spark plugs. Consequently, I also own one of those little bluetooth code readers that connect to my phone to tell me if there's something wrong with my vehicle.
Now to introduce the star of the story, Kevin. He describes himself as "street smart, not book smart." He's a nice guy to a fault, but lacks a great deal of common sense as it will be apparent later. Kevin longs to own and drive a car of his own, but has yet to make the steps towards getting his license. At this point, he's failed the written exam a couple times and has not progressed on to the actual road test. I give him rides from time to time, such as when he misses his bus.
After the whole debacle with the car, I decide that it'd be essential to install a rearview camera so that anyone driving it would at least feel safer doing so. I've done the installation job before on my own car, so how hard could it be? I buy an okay looking rearview camera kit off Amazon, wait a couple days for it to come in, and quick Google search, and I'm quickly removing panels and wiring the camera to the company car's brake lights in the restaurant's parking lot after work. While I'm at it, I figure that I should check this car for any trouble codes. It's a used car, so it's probably got some issues on it, right? I pop in my code reader into the car and wait for it to spit out data. I finish the camera job and check my phone for any issues. Two trouble codes catch my eye: low battery voltage and a misfiring cylinder. Cool, I can just drop by the nearest auto shop to have the battery recharged and grab a spark plug for the cylinder. Two birds with one stone, easy.
Kevin, done with the restaurant closing duties, steps out to check out what I'm doing. I explain that I'm just installing a rearview camera for the car and making sure it's running properly. I keep in mind that Kevin also wants to own his own car one day, so I go into more detail into car maintenance, quickly explaining about batteries and spark plugs. I give him a little demo of how the rearview camera works. He asks me if he could sit in the driver's seat, and I oblige.
"Man, this car is NICE! I want a car like this," Kevin says. He plays around with the controls on the dash for a little bit. "Can I take it for a little drive?"
I immediately shut this idea down. "Kevin, you don't even have your license. What makes you think you can drive it?" I scold him.
"I can drive," he shoots back. "I've seen you drive before. I think I can do it."
You just asked me the about dashboard controls. As if.
We get out of the car and we get ready to go home. I have the next two days off and I want to spend them relaxing. "Kevin, the car has faulty spark plugs and a dying battery. Under no circumstances, do NOT touch the car while I'm gone. I honestly this this car is unsafe." I repeat this several times before we go home. Satisfied by his confirmations, I throw the keys in the register head home. I feel like you could already tell where this is going.
Fast forward a couple days. I'm just chilling at home and aimlessly reading my emails. My parents borrow my car to get groceries. It's quiet, and I'm at peace. Until Kevin FaceTimes me. Usually, when I get a call from my staff, it's a question about food or where certain items are in the restaurant. It's not often that it's an emergency. I sigh and pick up the phone.
Immediately I see Kevin sitting in the driver's seat of a car. Before he could even say anything, I blurt out, "Kevin, are you in the company car right now?" A short pause and he purses his lips like he's eaten something really sour. "Kevin, I'm not going to ask you again. Are you in the company car right now?" More sternly this time.
Dodging my question, all he can manage to get out is "I messed up..."
One of my kitchen guys told Kevin that we're out of cabbage. Since there's a supermarket about a 10 minute walk away, he decides to go there during his break. He considers walking but realizes that bringing back cabbage would be heavy, so Kevin concludes that he should take the company car there since it would cut his time in two and it'd be more comfortable. Note, we also have a staff member who can drive. Apparently he didn't think about it at the time. He thinks, instead, about how this will get him points for being able to solve a problem at the restaurant without me being around.
Kevin grabbed the keys from the register, turns on the car, and drives off. He makes it about two blocks before the engine starts to sputter and subsequently dies due to the misfiring cylinder. To his credit, he manages to maneuver the car to the curb and turn on his hazards. He immediately calls me right after.
"Kevin, I thought I made myself very clear that the car was off limits," I said slowly. He proceeds to mimic a Mickey Mouse laugh and say, "I made a littly f*cky wucky."
Head in my hands, I sigh again. "Kevin, I have no way of getting to you. You're gonna have to call around to see if anyone can help you out." We hang up the phone and I make some phone calls of my own. The first phone call went to the senior manager (SM for short). It's his day off as well, but it can't be helped.
"What's up?" The SM seems to be spending time with his family, since I hear his kid laughing in the background.
"Kevin apparently took the company car to go shopping for ingredients, the car broke down, and now he's stuck," I explained.
There was a long pause. "What the f*ck? Is he dumb? I thought he didn't even have his license."
"I already told him that he's not to touch the car under any circumstances, and on top of that the car is in need of repairs," I continued.
The SM tells me to call the vice president (VP), since he's working today and he's in the area. Honestly, I don't want to have to escalate this issue that far, but I have no choice. I know that the VP has so much on his plate already, but I give him a call regardless. The call goes more or less the same as with the SM, but the VP says that he's on the way. He's about an hour away, however. God dammit.
In the meantime, I call my friends in the area, explain the situation, and ask them if they could do me a favor and save Kevin. I'm not really sure if it's actually the spark plug, but I think they'd at least be able to give him some extra support while the VP is on the way. Nobody's able to help out, so I give Kevin a follow-up call. Keep in mind it's been half an hour since he called.
"Hey Kevin, did you get into contact with anyone yet?" I ask.
"No, not yet," he responds.
"Uhh, any reason why?"
A long pause.
Fed up, I strongly recommend he call the VP to tell him what he did. We hang up again and I go straight into bed and nap, just completely drained from the entire interaction. I'll follow up later.
I wake up from my nap and call the VP to find out what ended up happening. The VP caught up with Kevin and started up the car with no issues. The VP makes Kevin sit in the passenger's seat and they drive back to the restaurant in awkward silence. He has no words for Kevin, and instead tasks SM and I with scolding him about it. Fair enough.
The next time SM, Kevin, and I are all working together is in a weeks' time. SM and I agree to mess with him a little bit. I tell Kevin that SM wants to have a meeting about what happened. I hype this up throughout the week, dropping hints such as "ooh Kevin, you're gonna get it!" A week passes by in the blink of an eye, but it probably feels like a drawn out hell for Kevin. We let him fester and reflect about his actions. The three of us sit down at a table before the restaurant opens and I open my mouth.
"Kevin, never do that again."
I end the meeting there. Kevin, who's as white as a sheet, has the color return to his face and appear to have a huge weight fall off his shoulders. "Is that it?" He shyly asks. I confirm that's it. He laughs in relief, since he believes he'd be fired. I add that he's young and bound to make really dumb, stupid mistakes. If I tell him something, he really needs to listen. On top of that, since he's working for a business, his actions, noticed or unnoticed, are representative of the business as a whole. "And Kevin, for the love of all that is good, get your license."
TL;DR Kevin drives a car in need of repairs to the store without his license and it breaks down en route. He calls me for help, but I send him my boss' boss to him. We make him think for a week that he'd be violently punished for his actions, but we gave him a life lesson instead.

2023.05.30 06:06 poppetshit Why must my brain make even the good stuff into a bad thing???

For context, my bf is away for 3 weeks so I’ve been letting my inner adhd demon run FREE. Mostly harmless things like eating cereal for dinner at 2 am, leaving half finished tasks everywhere, and generally following a few too many whims. Day before he left I finished the first book in a series, so I gave it to him so he could read it on the plane etc. The following few days, all I did was read. A L L I did. I could finally fully indulge my hyper focus. I was literally GIDDY the whole time. I was so excited about the characters and that I sparked that feeling from childhood of loving a book. I finished the WHOLE series before he got halfway through the first book. It was all I could think about. I was losing my mind not being about to talk to someone about it because he’s so far behind!! Every time he called I tried so hard not to, but eventually I’d give in and ask if he read any more and what was happening in the book. At some point I went to some social events and ALL I could think about was the books but it was NOT the setting to talk about faerie smut. Since he was taking so long… I started reading the series again. And researching it. Finding fanfic on it. ANYTHING. Today when I finally pulled myself away from watching fricking TikTok compilations of memes on YouTube about it (wtf), I thought to check my school stuff…. Guys I had an EXAM today. Every two weeks I have an exam on the two weeks of new materials. Only at that moment did I realize: 1. It’s been two weeks. 2. I have not learned a single thing in these two weeks. Why, brain, why… (Its “A Court of Thorns and Roses” btw…read at your own risk)

2023.05.30 06:06 DWYL_LoveWhatYouDo Parking near Union Square: Is hotel valet parking necessary/advisable?

I've been to NYC a few times, but not to the area around Union Square or Irving Plaza, and not at all since, um, 2014? Maybe before that? Maybe it was 2006? It's been a while. I don't get out much.
I am driving to the city, will have a small amount of luggage and maybe a small cooler in my car. It's a long trip with more other stops planned on the way. I booked a hotel about 3 blocks away from Irving Plaza. I will either arrive in Union Square in the middle of the night to pay for 2 nights at the hotel or I'll get there mid-morning or late morning before Noon, then check-in sometime later or possibly even after the show. I haven't finalized this part yet. Partly depends on answers I get to my posts.
I hope you can help me with Parking Questions.
1) Should I find a spot on my own or is it best to use the hotel valet?
The woman at the hotel told me that I should use their valet parking rather than try to find a parking garage on my own. Problem is, I want to queue up at the theater for GA as soon as I can get there, but the hotel won't let me check into my hotel until after 3 PM. There's a chance, but no guarantee, of early check-in at 1 PM which is still later than I'm planning to get there. The time that I expect to get to town and the window for check-in are several hours apart, unless I book the hotel for the night before.
The hotel front desk person said that the local parking garages do not allow people to park for a full 24 hours. She said they may have rates for full day, but they will only allow parking for a time period that is under 24 hours as their definition of a full day stay. They aren't 24 hour access? Is this correct? Do they tow cars that haven't left or do they lock people out of the parking garages? Is that a thing? Should I listen to her or is she just trying to keep my business with the hotel?
Would you advise me to use the hotel valet parking?
Honestly, I'm not even sure I can do so before officially checking in, because their website still has the strict pandemic rules posted about not even being allowed in the building until check-in time. I will call to check on this, of course, but I want to know what you all say first.
If valet parking isn't the best possible solution or if I can't use it until 3 PM, would I be okay to search for a parking garage when I get there, with an expected stay of 24 to 30 hours?
Is my luggage likely to be safe in my car if I can't leave it at the hotel until I check-in, which might not happen until late evening, after the show?
2) Tipping? If I do use valet parking, what is the tipping expectation? I have never paid valet parking in my life, so that's a bucket list item I didn't know I needed to check off.
3) Parking apps: Are these useful, worthwhile, accurate? Should I download one? I don't live where anyone ever has to worry enough about finding parking to use an app, so this is a new thing to me.
Thanks very much, NYC!

2023.05.30 06:06 RodmunchPHD Heroines of the Penninsula: Ladies Only Thracia Chapters 11-12x

Chapters 1-3
Chapters 4-7
Chapters 8-10
And we're back on everyone! May has certainly been a busy month so I haven't been able to get around to writing this until just now, but the run continues. Today I finally reap what I've sown & massively blunder while also recruiting two new essential ladies to this run. Without further ado, let's get started!
Chapter 11
This one was actually not the trickiest chapter in the entire series, but I certainly made it worse on myself because I have a need for door keys because I can't always depend on Lara to be around. I take a decent amount of time having Nanna & Karin capture some of these knights while Lara steals Door Keys where she can. Overall this was the slowest point of this streak of chapters where I just loaded up on lances/bows/keys just because I knew I wouldn't have a ton of time to slow down after this point. We kept moving, got to the doors where I burnt 1 key just to keep some of my squishier units out of ballista range & get to Kempf ASAP. Surprisingly Fred refused to be a fool and actually corner camped & used his vulnerary which gave me way more breathing room than I expected. I captured what I could with Big Mac in the throne room & tapped Kempf with Nanna to get him outta there. Overall a smooth chapter for how much I usually struggle with a full team & we're off to 11x!
Chapter 11x
Ok so this chapter was really finnicky because the top half of the map can't actually be cleared by Fred & I really really need to get to Olwen fast. She's my first mage & by god I need to use all these Thunder tomes I've been saving up. So Lara gets warped up & saves the now defenseless Fred with a Paragon Sword & Neir Scroll in hand to get more build levels. Otherwise I had Tanya & Karin in the main hallway because Machuya had to rest up. Selphina certainly chipped through the hallway, but otherwise it was a slow burn through the hallway because I couldn't heal without backing up to Safy. This whole ordeal took a few attempts because of Lara not being a combat unit, Tanya & Karin crawling through the melee, and me waiting out Meteor to make sure it didn't kill Olwen. Once I actually managed to save Olwen the chapter became far more consistent, but the amount of soldiers filing up in the top side meant the children couldn't make it out sadly. Olwen & Lara tried their hardest but with Fred constantly getting captured it was a struggle. Overall it was a difficult chapter, but we made it out with a decent haul of generic loot & a new cornerpiece to my army with a lot of training ahead of her.
I actually want to sidetrack for a minute and talk about how unique of a position Olwen is in. While she has generally bad ranks & pretty mediocre stats she's going to be among the most important units in the run. I've been saving wind & thunder tomes for a good reason, training Olwen is my fast track to getting a good magic unit. Out of all my options, Linoan is good but is stuck at 5 move until Chapter 21, Nanna only gets magic damage on Earth Sword, and frankly I don't know if I'll be getting Miranda. I very well may be stuck with Olwen being the best trained mage for most of the game, especially the more difficult outdoor chapters of the midgame. For as much as Olwen is such a weirdly balanced unit in a normal FE5 run, she's going to rapidly excel because of how rare magic damage is. I'm going to talk about this later, but keep in mind how important Olwen will be & how she grows.
Chapter 12
Hey so remember how I said my actions would bite me later? Yeah here it is, both Karin & Safy are exhausted in this chapter & I didn't kill Fred so I'm stuck with this. After much trial & error I simply fled to the top corridor with my army, let Fred get killed, and ran for the end. Also on a side note we get Mareeta, my 3rd sword unit and one with a really good promo. She's going to be used & hopefully end up decent. I managed to use Mareeta to capture Salem so only Machuya got slept. Captured the boss for a neat Vantage Manual & we made a clean getaway without any unique treasure. It was a surprisingly easier clear when I decided to not train Olwen nor capture more axes for Machuya. No arena grinding & no houses, but hey it was clean & quick.
Chapter 12x
So hey I'm continuing to reap what I sow, Lara is completely exhausted & unable to participate in this chapter! I now don't have a dancer, woo hoo! Otherwise I really don't have much to say, I warped Salem to get Perne out, Tina burned the Thief staff because I couldn't steal it with Perne, and all the treasures + 2 extra dancers were captured. Good loot all around & a terrible result with not getting a dancer. This will become a pretty massive problem later on, but for now I get a real Thief Fighter! I also get Tina, but there will be more words on her in later parts as she will eventually become important.
So with two somehow simple chapters & two more complex as normal chapters we leave behind our little journey & arrive at Tahra next time. Overall I'm getting to the point where max deploy via fatigue isn't an option so I'm going to have to space out my staff users between Tina, Safy, and Nanna. Overall the next few chapters will be a practice in roster management which will be "fun" as the Kaga fans would say. It's only going to get far harder, but overall from a mildly more analytical perspective we're moving our roster into a 2 side split of how I'm going to deploy & make some form of parity between actual units & training projects for lategame. Hopefully it won't be too long until the next part, but for now I'll leave you with the roster stats.
Tanya didn't change much, she's better than Selphina at least
Safy I am once again asking for 10 skill
Machuya my beloved meatwall
Karin isn't too different from the last post, she was out of commission for her important chapters
Level 20 Lara!
Nanna approaching 20/20 cap
Selphina literally didn't level up
Olwen's Minor Progress
On the next episode we'll get our 2nd mage, 2nd flier, and a bunch of Stam Drinks. Hope everyone enjoyed this & if you've got any questions please let me know & I'll try to answer the best I can. Thanks for reading through!

2023.05.30 06:06 trashcan86 Success: SFO/BLR J RT within T-45 days

I see lots of success stories here booking for 330-355 days out, but less on shorter-notice bookings. Here's my success story.
Outbound: SFO-LAX-DOH-BLR AS/QR (Qsuites), 85k AS miles + $55
Return: BLR-BKK-TPE-SFO, TG/BR, 93.5k UA miles (transferred from UR) + $70
Similar round trips go for $8000+
Resulting value: ~2.5-3cpp
More details:
Needed a trip to BLR from SFO to visit family with fairly inflexible dates - I'd need to leave sometime between 6/14 and 6/16, and come back 6/24 or 6/25.
Started off with ~200k Alaska miles, ~150k MR, and ~100k UR.
I first started monitoring seats.aero for shorter-notice Qsuites saver award availability. The trend appears that within T-10 days, Qatar will release a few USA-DOH seats, usually between late night and early morning Pacific time. Since I had so many Alaska miles where awards are fully refundable and don't need to transfer from MUR, I figured I could speculate. I got 6/16 DOH-BLR in J with Alaska miles and set a bunch of seats.aero alerts for USA-DOH figuring I could be somewhat flexible about my US gateway.
For the return, I started playing around with BA mileage redemptions with AS miles, starting off with BLR-LHR-EWR on 6/24 before being able to move my US flight to ORD and then PHX when availability opened. This cost 80k AS miles + ~$660, and then I'd have to book another PHX-SFO flight for ~$100.
A better deal came up when when EVA Air released a glut of award seats on 5/9. I was able to quickly get 6/24 BLR-BKK-TPE-SFO -- on TG for BLR-BKK-TPE and BR for TPE-SFO. BKK-TPE was initially in economy, but I set an ExpertFlyer alert for I space on that flight and was eventually notified of availability on 5/23. I'll have a 10.5 hour layover in TPE, but plan to use that time to explore the city.
On 5/14, I was notified at about 5am Pacific that there was IAD-DOH saver availability on 6/15 that I could connect to my existing DOH-BLR. However, the AS agent I got on the phone could not add the IAD-DOH segment to that PNR, so I had to book IAD-DOH separately -- which would have run me 130k AS miles + $65 plus another $400 to get me from IAD-DOH. A few days later another IAD-DOH availability on the same day opened up around 11pm, and the AS agent I got on the line then was able to add it to my DOH-BLR PNR -- so now I was at 85k Alaska miles + ~$465.
Finally, last night I was notified of saver space open on 6/15 LAX-DOH, which I was able to swap my IAD-DOH segment to and add a 6/14 SFO-LAX -- using the overnight to visit a friend.
Hopefully these strategies help with anyone trying to plan partner J redemptions on shorter notice travel.
