2023.05.29 04:15 d1r1g0 Post Your Day Job
We all need to work a gig other than acting to survive. I’m endlessly wondering what other actors do to stay afloat while making the career pan out.
What’s your day job? Post your job title and a brief description of how it makes acting possible for you.
Me: Los Angeles SAG-AFTRA member WaiteTemp Agent/BG
All of these gigs allow for a flexible schedule but pay decently and allow me to save and pay my bills. I don’t buy much and live frugally. I can self-tape or attend in person auditions.
Hot tip: DPSS doesn’t consider acting work as part of my income because it is by nature inconsistent. Therefore, I qualify for benefits with only my day job income considered. Food for thought. #EBT

2023.05.29 04:15 Certainicecreamneeds Midway: The Rising Sun
The sun rose over the vast expanse of the Pacific Ocean, casting its golden hues on the deck of the Japanese aircraft carrier Akagi. It was June 4, 1942, and the Imperial Japanese Navy was poised to strike a decisive blow against the United States at Midway Island. Little did they know that this battle would shape the course of history.
On board the Akagi, Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto paced nervously, his mind focused on the impending engagement. The intelligence had suggested that the American carriers would be caught off guard, their defenses weakened. The element of surprise was their greatest advantage, or so they believed.
Unbeknownst to the Japanese, the Americans had cracked their codes and intercepted their messages. But the Japanese had employed a more secure encryption method, concealing their plans from prying eyes. The Americans were left in the dark, unaware of the imminent threat heading their way.
As the Japanese carrier strike force closed in on Midway Island, their aircraft prepared for a devastating surprise attack. The morning air crackled with tension as the flight decks buzzed with activity. The planes were armed, fueled, and ready for battle.
Meanwhile, on the American side, the absence of crucial intelligence left them ill-prepared. The carriers, plagued by mechanical issues and delayed by unfavorable weather conditions, were unable to launch their aircraft in time. The Japanese found themselves facing a weakened and scattered American naval force.
With a deafening roar, the first wave of Japanese bombers soared through the skies, descending upon the unsuspecting American carriers. The element of surprise worked in their favor as bombs rained down on the defenseless decks. One carrier after another was engulfed in flames, sinking beneath the waves.
The Japanese enjoyed uncontested air superiority, their pilots skillfully fending off any feeble attempts by American fighters to resist. The remaining American carriers scrambled to launch their aircraft, but the damage had already been done. The Japanese had achieved total control of the skies, and their relentless attacks continued unabated.
Desperate to turn the tide, American commanders ordered their own counterattacks. However, their efforts proved futile. Japanese anti-aircraft defenses were robust, shooting down the majority of American bombers and torpedo planes before they could inflict any significant damage. The Japanese carriers remained operational, their deadly aerial assault continuing to cripple the American fleet.
Throughout the days that followed, the Japanese pressed their advantage, relentlessly hunting down the remaining American ships. Submarines prowled the waters, picking off stragglers and causing havoc within the American ranks.
Tactical errors compounded the American defeat. Misjudgments, missed opportunities, and a lack of coordination plagued their efforts. As the battle raged on, it became clear that victory was slipping from their grasp. The once-mighty American Pacific Fleet was left shattered and reeling.
With the total destruction of the American carriers, the Japanese emerged victorious at the Battle of Midway. The repercussions were far-reaching. The Japanese maintained their dominance in the Pacific theater for an extended period. The course of World War II was altered, and the war's outcome hung in an uncertain balance.
History would forever remember the Battle of Midway as a turning point, as the echoes of Japanese triumph reverberated across the Pacific. The battle left an indelible mark on the annals of military history, showcasing the significance of preparedness, strategic planning, and the fickle nature of fate on the battlefield.

2023.05.29 04:14 Junior_Button5882 Monkey Man of New Delhi
| || | submitted by Junior_Button5882 to cryptid_world [link] [comments]
The Monkey Man of New Delhi
was an ape like creature that terrorized the capital city of New Delhi, India
In May of that year, stories began to circulate in New Delhi of a strange, nocturnal, monkey
-like creature that was attacking people. Eyewitness accounts were often inconsistent, but tended to describe the creature as about four feet (120 cm) tall, covered in thick black hair. It supposedly wore a metal helmet, had metal claws, pants, glowing red eyes (sometimes beneath goggles) and three buttons on its chest. Some suggest the Monkey Man is an avatar of the Hindu deity Hanuman, while others claim it is a version of Bigfoot
Many people reported being scratched, and two (by some reports, three) people even died when they leapt from the tops of buildings or fell down stairwells in a panic caused by the Monkey Man. Eventually, police even issued artist impressions in an attempt to catch the creature.
Shining a bright light in the Monkey Man's face was said to ward him off, as it renders his "night vision glasses" ineffective. It was also thought that throwing water on the simian's chest would short-circuit his "motherboard heart." In similar fashion, it was believed that the creature could turn invisible with the press of one button on his panel. These theories portray the Monkey Man as something more mechanical than natural.
The Monkey Man is believed today to be the product of mass hysteria.
On 13 May 2001, 15 people suffered injuries ranging from bruises to bites and scratches. On 15 May 2001, a pregnant woman fell down some stairs fleeing after neighbors shouted that they had seen the Monkey Man. A 4-foot-tall (1.2 m) wandering Hindu sadhu was beaten up by an angry mob who mistook him for the Monkey Man. On 18 May 2001, a van driver was set upon and sustained multiple fractures in another case of mistaken identification as Monkey Man. Further sightings were reported in Kanpur in February 2002 and New Delhi in July 2002, the latter describing a monkey-like machine that sparkled red and blue lights. One anonymous witness even claimed the Monkey Man had stolen his cell phone. ADVERTISEMENT
In Popular Culture
The appearance of Monkey Man in Old Delhi is the center-point of the 2009 Bollywood Hindi film Delhi-6
directed by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra. In the film, the creature, called in Hindi as "Kala Bandar
" ("black monkey") is used as an allegory to represent the evil that resides inside every man alongside God (virtue).

Hi I'm Huey I'm a 26m in central Indiana. I'm looking for people to chat with, hang out with, or just buddies to game with. A bit about me: I love tattoos (only have one so far been planning on getting more for a while), video games (I have a PS4, Xbox series x, and a switch), nature and animals (being outside with my dogs is super therapeutic for me.), I do watch tv mostly streaming shows though (hopefully we have a couple in common). I'm open to both guys and girls (I am a straight guy though, just looking for friends.)

2023.05.29 04:14 decision_apt 42 [M4F] #NY - Affectionate Daddy Wanting A Princess
Now we all know the spectrum of this dynamic is very wide and for something like this to truly work out, desires/cravings need to be aligned.
Therefore, I'll describe the kind of Daddy I am:
I want to be your number one fan. Supporting you, encouraging in school or career. But I also see it as my job to take some of the stress that real life can bring off those shoulders of yours, freeing up the capacity to be the best princess. Protecting and keeping you safe is a top priority, but also help guide and be your anchor I also deem important.
We'll let the kink aspect of the dynamic develop naturally as sexual chemistry can never be forced, but I am very open minded. Please know that from my standpoint intelligence, touch/affection, and the ability to be playful are essential qualities for this kind of relationship to be successful. Having conventional hobbies and interests in common will make our bond even deeper.
If any/all of what I've written piques your interest, let's chat and see if we get along.
Open to online too.

2023.05.29 04:13 runthereszombies What should I do about my (27F) partner of 2 months (29M) who isn't dependable?
Hello! I've been dating Ryan for about 2 months now. He's amazing in so many ways... sweet, thoughtful, and considerate. He cooks me dinner and then gets up to make me breakfast in the morning. He always makes sure my favorite snacks and drinks are stocked in his place. But I've been feeling like we struggle a bit in the communication department. First... it's super hard to get him to respond to texts. Usually if I ask a question I'll hear from him the following day, but he's also been known to stop responding in the middle of conversations and starts to just heart my messages. He only really has a conversation with me when we're planning our next time getting together. We usually see each other once or twice a week and have been on 12 dates. When we're together things are incredible and we have so much fun. He tells me how amazing he thinks I am and we're exclusively dating each other.
Today we got into a disagreement. Last week I was supposed to sleep over his place on wednesday. He asked for a raincheck because his parents had been visiting and their flight got cancelled. Sure, no problem at all! Flights are a mess right now. I slept over Friday night and left Saturday morning. We had plans for him to stay at mine tonight and we would get some work done together at a coffee shop in the morning. We agreed on 7:30 p.m., and around 3 I reached out and asked if that time was still good. He responded around 4 that he couldn't make it anymore but would meet me at the coffee shop in the morning. I am a little frustrated because I've been rainchecked twice this week, even though the first wasn't his fault.
A few weeks ago I was visiting my mom outside the city and the plan was for me to take the long way home so I could pick him up on the way. He asked me if we could push the meeting time back a couple hours and I said no problem, I'll just hang with my mom. Our new meeting time comes and I get to his apartment only for him to tell me that he's still an hour away at a friend's housewarming party.
I feel like he's amazing but we just don't have the best communication and I feel like I'm being brushed off. When I explained tonight how this is making me feel, he was super understanding and apologized. He asked if I still wanted to meet up tomorrow and I told him that I appreciate his apology and we would catch up next weekend.
I know 2 months isn't a long time to date. I want someone who is dependable. I also don't want to push him too hard because this really is new. How do you think I should approach this?

2023.05.29 04:13 ElderEmoPimo Trying to plan for my arms
Okay so I have 2 tattoos currently and I’m wanting to start working on my arms. I have a plan for one arm but the other is where I’m stuck. For my left arm I want to do a black and grey realism sleeve with nature as the theme. I want an owl, fox, and deer to be the focal points and I want to incorporate mushrooms into the forestry.
For my other arm I had initially planned on doing some minimalistic tattoos and calling it a day. But I have fallen in love with American traditional. I’d love to have my other arm be an Am Trad patchwork sleeve, but I fear the contrast between my arms will be too jarring.
Any advice for a tattoo newbie? Do you think this will look good/bad? Any suggestions for either arm?

2023.05.29 04:12 Blue_Sabbath Is this normal Christian parent behavior?
I am a woman in her early 20s, who currently lives with her parents to balance the cost of college.
Within the last couple of weeks, I have started seeing a guy who is in his early 30s.
When my mom asked how old he was, I told her, and she said, “You know because he’s in his 30s, he’s probably not a virgin.”
Which came out of the blue and seemed extremely random. (She does not know that I am not a virgin, but I don’t feel it’s my parents’ business as long as I’m safe.)
Later, I had mentioned how he had cooked me dinner at his house, and my mom gasped and said, “You know, that usually means sex, right?”
She doesn’t know that I spent the night because it would probably make her worry more.
I understand that she wants to protect me, but I just feel this is a rather awkward, invasive way to ask — especially since I just started seeing the guy.
Is this normal Christian parent behavior? Do you have a similar story?

2023.05.29 04:12 stupidb1tch_ What can I do for a more “Dewy”look?
| || |
Hi Everyone! This is my everyday makeup look!(sometimes I don’t use lipstick/lipgloss). This summer I want to lean into the more natural, no makeup, makeup look. But specifically I’m really into the dewy/ glow looks plastered all over instagram/TikTok. I don’t use foundation, or powders. Mainly some concealer, bronzer, blush, eyeliner, mascara, and the elf brow soap. What products that aren’t too heavy do you suggest? (bonus points if you give me suggestions that are affordable/ I can find at Ulta since my town doesn’t have a Sephora) submitted by stupidb1tch_ to MakeupAddiction [link] [comments]
2023.05.29 04:11 Ok_Cat_8186 I’ve been on the same meds for a year now. Is this how it’s gonna be?
I started quetiapine and beginning dosage of lamotrigine in early June 2022. I’ve been consistently taking them since. I’ve reached this familiar place where I feel dulled by the meds. There was a brief period where I felt pretty good and was feeling hopeful and excited about the future. But more recently I’ve just kind of been over it. I’m not feeling depressed but the idea of having to do mundane shit for the rest of my life doesn’t sound appealing. I get thoughts in my head telling me the meds are dulling who I truly am and i shouldn’t have to suppress what my body naturally does. Why shouldn’t I be able to feel the ‘joys’ of mania. Last time I felt this was a little over a year ago. I went off my meds cold turkey and was fine for a month and then I quickly went to a dark place and had to check myself into the hospital. I guess what I’m trying to understand is what does stability look like for you? Now that im not feeling incredibly depressed am I just not feeling fulfilled by my life? I don’t know Thanks for reading

2023.05.29 04:11 TangerineThing1 My dad's excuse for not wanting to let me go back to ballet is so odd and random
My ballet lessons are my only chance to get out of the house, and I only get to do them once a week for an hour (and they're private lessons) so I barely even get socialization from that anyways, but I still love leaving the home.
However, my parents might not let me go back, and their reasons are so stupid. My dad doesn't want me to go back because I don't like milk. You read that right. He thinks I'm somehow an0r3x1c because I don't like milk and I'm skinny, and is accusing me of purposely making myself calcium deficient. I do eat dairy in other ways though, so I don't understand. He says if I don't start drinking a lot of milk he'll punish me by not letting me go back, but milk makes me bloated and it hurts sometimes to drink.
Then my mom doesn't want me to go back because she says I have to focus on school (I do online school 1-3 hours a day, so I don't need to spend a lot of time on it). My mom also tries to brainwash me into thinking socializing isn't important anyways, so she doesn't care either way.

2023.05.29 04:11 Atomic12192 Higher tier meats.
We all know the joke of Minecraft farms being inhumane as hell, and while I don’t want to crazy-punish someone doing that I like the idea of an incentive for better animal treatment. Introducing, better meat. I will use cows for my example, but this would also apply to pigs and sheep.
A cow’s drops will be impacted by their living conditions. The game will check every once in a while how many cows are near a given cow. If the amount is high, say 10+ in the chunk, the drops will be reduced to 0-1. At medium, 5-9 in a chunk, the drops will be as we know them at 1-3 raw beef, and they could drop prime rib if the weapon has fortune. At low, 1-4 in the chunk, the cows will now drop 2-3 raw beef and 1-2 prime rib. This information would be known to the player as cows naturally spawn in groups of 3-5, and they would be able to drop prime rib.
Prime rib would function similar to raw beef, just giving slightly more hunger and saturation. When cooked however, Prime rib becomes even better. While steak restores 8 hunger and 12.8 saturation, cooked prime rib restores 10 hunger, 15 saturation, and heals a heart. This provides an large incentive to cram less animals in a pen.
While someone could somewhat cheese the system by using a fortune 3 sword on a medium quality farm, the work required for that enchantment is enough for this reward to be worth it.

2023.05.29 04:11 mdv_is_back My family is matriarchal.
Starts with grandpa and grandma, he was setting up his business and making sure the family didn't go into poverty while my grandmother literally managed the entire family, she managed her 2 sisters, her 3 daughters and 1 niece. She was the head of the family (not that misogyny wasnt there). But after her passing, the family wasn't as tight as it was.
Lost dad when I was 7, raised by my mom, she had 2 sisters and one brother. the brother has isn't dominating, his wife is very outspoke, which is a good thing (Some say she overpowers the hubby, but I dont think that's her problem). Mom had to be single parent, worked like crazy and raised me, aunts were also all independent. Extremely.
I think it is because my family left their native hometown and started moving around a lot. That and poverty made these "sanskaari sushil" stereotype un viable, grandpa raised all his daughters and all women in the family to be independent and have a life of their own. Not perfect, but damn. You don't see that everyday.
Now, even though I was raised in a matriarchy, I wasn't ever let in on their problems, didn't know what periods were until I was 14 or 16. Never knew any of the problems women faced. It was only until I had a gf when I was 18 I found out the messed up world we live in. We boys need to learn a lot lol

2023.05.29 04:10 smolnari lavender flower browning? :(

hello! im in need of some advice. i just recently got my lavender baby about 2/2 and a half weeks ago, not 100% sure. i'm worried about him because he's starting to brown on his flowers and i don't know why? :( i thought maybe he was underwatered, so i watered him a bit. he isn't showing signs of being overwatered. the foliage seems to be fine, not wilting or anything. the flowers also seem to be curbing slightly. i'm not sure if that relates at all, or what. i tried using google and was told it could be from transplant shock which i think may be possible since i just recently got him within the last few weeks. i was also told that it's a natural process? i'm not sure. any help? i really want to help him and i don't want him to die :(( pictures attached submitted by smolnari to gardening [link] [comments]
2023.05.29 04:10 sadsporkyy Late Night Wonders
possible TWs, sorry
Sometimes I wonder if I had spoke up more when I was a little girl. About the things I knew were wrong but I didn’t want to get anyone in trouble.
I wonder what would’ve happened if my mom figured it all out on her own.
I wonder if I should’ve tried harder with drawing because it was something I enjoyed. I always imagined I would become an artist someday.
I wonder if I would’ve enjoyed my childhood more if I wasn’t so obsessed with my grades.
I wonder what would have happened if I had succeeded in killing myself in high school.
I wonder if my dad remembers driving home from school, passing the neighboring horse farm as he told me I was never going to amount to anything in my life because I liked to read whenever he drove, and I often times couldn’t recall directions.
I wonder if I had been stronger willed like my friends when we were teens and ate salads every day or nothing at all, would I look as skinny as they did? Would I have felt better? Had more confidence?
I wonder what attending college for something I’m passionate about would’ve been like. Would graduation have felt more fulfilling? Would job hunting be easier now?
I wonder if my parents had never married. Never met. Where would they be now? Probably happier.
I wonder why everyone around me is getting married, having babies, starting the careers they’ve been wanting for years now. What am I doing wrong?
I wonder if I lowered my standards, maybe I would find someone. Like if I went back to my ex, or explored my sexuality, or even just found a way to be happier on my own.
I wonder about my next step in life. I want to get it right, not settle for anything that would make me miserable. But I can’t take risks. I just can’t.
I wonder what would happen if I could though.

2023.05.29 04:09 SlowNefariousness400 Summer illness question
I have a perplexing illness that has been experienced by my 12 month old as well as my mother but no one else in our very large family. 3 weeks ago I started having a little cough and took a COVID test, was negative, and allergies were really high in my area I figured it was that. Also had some GI stuff with it which I usually have an illness with either GI or respiratory, I can’t remember ever having both nor can I ever remember being sick this time of year when temps in my area are mid 90’s Fahrenheit. Well after about 7ish days the respiratory symptoms worsened to the point that I have a hacking cough producing thick green sputum. I did used to be a “social smoker” and tend to get very bad coughs in the winter time but this cough has been the worst I’ve had in my life. Both my mother and my 12 month old also had worsening respiratory symptoms around the same time period. Took another COVID test and negative again, took my baby to the doctor because she developed diarrhea again and had a very poor appetite, fever and lethargic in addition to her bad cough with mucus. Doc said she has mild ear infection and respiratory virus, ordered antibiotics. My mom was out of town, feeling very ill and she called her doc who also ordered antibiotics. So I actually have two questions 1. If this is viral shouldn’t we not be taking antibiotics? I’m asking because I’m wondering if I also need to see a doctor. I’ve read summer illness is often enterovirus which antibiotics wouldn’t help (from what I understand). My cough is so bad I’m not sleeping from coughing late into the night and sometimes I throw up from coughing so hard. I also started having diarrhea a couple days after my baby had it, have no appetite and very tired. I’ve seen no improvement with my cough in the last two weeks and I also started a steroid inhaler (an old one previously prescribed) the last seven days. So does this sound like I should go sit at a clinic half my day and ask for antibiotics? Or is there something else I should ask for that could help? 2. Second question does this at all sound like something environmental that could be causing this? I’m just wondering because I find it odd that we got better and then around the same time all got worse, while others family in and outside our home did not get sick at all. Just wondering if we could have been exposed to like a mold or something and then the GI stuff is a separate issue. Sorry this is super long, I get sick every year and I’m 40 years old and never been sick like this before. Thanks so much for reading.

2023.05.29 04:08 surfmedic11 Does my wife qualify?
We've been through the flowcharts and discussions, but we'd like clarification on which ancestor to use. Although her grandfather was born in Italy, it seems she would have to use the GGF or GGM? All listed is wife's maternal line.
- GGF born in Italy (1886?) immigrated to the US in 1920 according to Ellis Island ship records
- GGM born in Italy (1892?) and gave birth to GF in 1919/1920 in Italy
- GGM and GF immigrated to the US in 1922 (Ellis Island ship records)
- All naturalized at some point according to the 1940 census (and most likely while GF was a minor).
- Mother born in US territory in 1946 (after GF naturalized).
Basically we're unclear about naturalization as we can not find records (aside from the census documentation) and are assuming she should be able to use one of her maternal grandparents, but are curious how naturalization plays a part since we've read about "line's breaking".
We also have no marriage records and are assuming we found the GGFs birth entry through the Archivio di Stato (name and time seem to match), but can't find her GGMs or GFs birth entry, nor a marriage record.
She'd like to make a consulate appointment, but not if she wouldn't qualify.
Any insight would be super helpful!
