2023.06.09 15:44 alwaysblessedbygod My(32F) ex bf(33M) of 10 years came back. I am happy but anxious. How can I be comfortable with the idea of getting back with him?
My(32f) ex bf(33M) bf of 10 years came back, I am happy but anxious and not comfortable. Please help me!
My ex bf came back last month, I am happy but always anxious and not comfortable. What should I do?
I am (32F) from Asia and now live in Canada. I am a software engineer from a prestigious institution of UK and working in worlds biggest IT farms since 21. I met my boyfriend Sam(33M) 14 years back when I was studying in UK. He was a painter and I encouraged him to learn animation (funded the course fees) as his family was not present with both his mom and dad chose their own families after the divorce. He was vulnerable, used to work in a cafee near our university and lived in that cafee and used to draw cartoons on the road on his free time to sale to the tourists. Being a foreign student and very introvert, I had almost no friends from my class. I was always like this, busy with studies and not interested in anything else. Anyhow since I met Sam in the cafee he used to work, he became my only friend and best friend. Eventually I finished my Engineering and got job in a big company but the location was Germany. I was very sad to go to Germany leaving Sam behing but in my surprise he said he loved me and doesn't want to stay in UK alone. He accompanied me and we both started living in Germany in our 20s..due to language problem he didn't any job there(not even in cafee). I enrolled him to learn animation as he was very good in making cartoons. I fell in love with him eventually and we spent 4 years in Germany. But due to language issue Sam didn't get any job there I decided to take a job in Canada and we moved here together. It's high paying job so I bought a house and car. Sam got a job too in animation, it doesn't pay well but something that he likes. He had minimum contribution like sometimes groceries etc..almost all expenses were taken care by me. I used to travel all over the world till 2019 for my work(IT onsite work) and accompanied Sam everywhere with me. I told my family about Sam and they liked him. Only my mom was skeptical about not changing my religion, after marriage as Sam is Christian. Though we had no plan to get married when I told what my mom said jokingly and he took it in offense. Saying he is not thinking about marriage etc..I was offended like by 2020 we were already together more than 10 years so obviously we would get married sooner or later so what's the problem. It didn't set well with me so I pushed him about his reaction. He eventually told me that he is gay, he discovered this when he met a guy in an art exhibition and they clicked. They even secretly started meeting and he is from the same race as him(both are White). I asked if they are sleeping, he admitted yes and that's how he knew he is gay. The whole world shattered for me. The guy whom I sheltered, taken care and till now taking care of told me that he is just with me because he didn't know he is gay! And everything became untrue. The affection for me became habit and he didn't want to tell me because how much I have done for him. I cried, shouted and was so angry to waste 10+ years of my life and I lost my golden years! I calmed down and let him go, it was difficult for me to do so. Because I have psoriasis, starter around my 28 years and I am not comfortable with anyone else than Sam. After our breakup in 2020 covid hit hard. My travels stop. I couldn't go home and lived in that big house in this cold country alone. Worked from home and barely took care of myself. I saw the posts of Sam and his handsome boyfriend and lost it again. Sam begged me to keep contact as I am his only friend in this world. But he soon forgot about me and never contacted. I felt used and betrayed. I worked almost 20 hours a day and that helped my career a lot. I got a huge promotion and started traveling again since end of 2021. I was just back from my latest work trip from Spain and found Sam sitting on front of my house in May 2nd week. I was shocked and happy to see him. He hugged me and said I became slimmer. I never loved anyone but him so I became emotional and asked him what happened why is he here? He said that he realized that no one can love him more than I loved him. He realized that he is not gay but bi sexual and broke off with his bf (as he is very rude and bossy) and came backe to me. He tried to contact me but I was travelling so he came directly. I thought something was off but I still took him in. I asked him repeatedly if he really broke with his bf and what if he again goes for other guy. He brushed me off saying that I am the guy in our relationship as I provided for him and he doesn't need any other guy. I asked about him mentioning the same race thing. As I am from Asia will that be a problem again? He said that's the excuse his ex bf asked him to tell me so that I take offense and let him go. That night he wanted to kiss me but I told him not to rush and wait for some time. What if you patch up with your bf. He said he broke off totally and he is sure not to go back to him. but he understands my concerns and will wait till I am ready to take him back. This time he wanted to contribute in household a lot more and also apologized me profusely for taking me granted. Also asked why I am single since last 2 years is that because of my psoriasis or I still love him. I told him both are the reasons. My psoriasis is not that bad, only on fret and palms and can be covered and not visible to others. But while undressed it's obvious to be noticed. So I am very afraid of dating anyone except Sam who knows me well and accepts me as I am. I am happy and wants to kiss him and hug him but I am anxious all the time what if he leaves me again for another guy! I am not comfortable staring any relationship again with him thinking what if he again does not like me and keeps comparing with him ex. I tried to openly discuss but he is not getting it. Should I just tell him that it's not possible anymore because of his sexuality I no longer feel comfortable?

2023.06.09 15:41 oceanfrenn [Offer] 5 Spirited Away Postcards ↖(^ω^)↗ [MY to WW]
Alternative title: help me find out if the postbox outside my campus works!
Hello everyone! I know I said I have exams but when there's a will to card, there's a way. :) Anyways I figured I could prep some cards beforehand and fill em out while waiting for my daily commute back home. There's a postbox near my stop, I've always been curious if it's an active one so this is an experiment of sorts!
How I plan to do this is everyday I'll fill a card out, then drop it into the postbox directly. I'll just write about my day. If you wanna claim one, please note that there's a chance it won't arrive. And if it does arrive, I hope you'd be able to post a thank you!
Now how to claim:
- Comment a number (if you're the first person claiming = #1, next person would be #2, so on so forth until all 5 cards have been claimed)
- PM me your address directly. No chat please.
That's all! Hope this isn't confusing, I'm literally half-awake rn. Now back to studying before I bomb everything. :'D
PS: Happy festa to any armys who happen to see this! 💜💜 I absolutely love take two! And I can't wait for July when JJK1 drops!!

2023.06.09 15:40 ProcyonBright Thinking of quitting my job - need advice or encouragement.
I work in a toxic work environment. I got a new boss a couple of months ago who needs to be constantly coddled. One of those that can't take any hits to the ego or knows how to handle constructive criticism at all. We’re a team of two.
When we've had meetings with other people (especially women) he's constantly on his phone and won't even look up from what he's doing on it to listen to what anyone is saying. Now, I know he's likely doing work stuff - but, I don't care. If you're in a meeting, you need to have at least an ounce of respect toward the people in the meeting. Even if you think it's a pointless meeting. Since he never pays attention, I've now taken on all the mental load of having to remember everything - even when it's not my job, because. He'll even ask me to remind him about things every time he's told something. Keep in mind I'm not his secretary or assistant.
He's also asked - straight up - if I would work for free. I work on contract, and to keep the budget tight he suggested, "why don't you clock up to 36 hours and then not clock in, but just keep working?" and then just keeps commenting on how he's impressed with my "stepping up during this time." Uhh...
Now, I know this ask was straight-up illegal for him to ask me, and I'm severely kicking myself for not recording the meeting in which he said this word-for-word (and there's no way to get a recording of it after the fact - it was a quick Googlemeet meeting).I have now started recording all work meetings with him, but we haven't brought it up quite yet (I'm not near those hours yet, but will be soon). There's some evidence of this in Slack messages, but not nearly enough to do anything about it or for it to matter to any legal people.
So - I have 50,000k in savings right now. My dream is to be a full-time working artist and I've been told I can do it and will be successful at it if I have the time to focus on it. I have no desire to get another job in my field, and I've been at the same niche company so long, it would be very difficult.
But - I used to work in restaurants back in the day and can catch on quickly again.I was thinking of taking the next 6 months off to go all in on my art. If it doesn’t look like it’ll be going anywhere by then, then I’ll go back to restaurants and keep working toward this dream.I’m 32 right now, single, and scared. But I can’t be at this job anymore. What would you do?

2023.06.09 15:38 Double_Nothing_2908 Aussies! 🇦🇺
Having had a thorough read through this amazing group over the last few weeks! (Seriously addicted + loving all the posts! Even the rants … ESPECIALLY the rants if I’m honest!)
I’m curious, a lot of posts are from the U.S + U.K, so I’m intrigued to know… how different (if at all) are the Aussie Aldi stores run? I feel like we, or atleast I like to believe we have a generally well regarded retail sector and have it a tad more cushy in terms of store hours & workload due to our employment rights.
But do we? I’m a manager at the big red supermarket in Australia + am looking at a transfer / job change.
But I’m now wondering, what are Aussie Aldi’s like in terms of team size per store, daily routine, store sales in general (since I know Coles and Woolies are generally larger format stores - the one I work at is a 1.1 Million a week store + yet my grocery team - just plain old grocery … consists of 23 people, and we have 108 team members store wide) and how big are the daily loads from produce / dry goods / chiller etc. & what is the scan rate in Aussie Aldi’s ? Are they as enforced as they are in the U.K + U.S ?
I love hard work and strive on it, as weird as it sounds … I always feel good when I go home and feel a little exhausted after a long day because I walk away with this sense of accomplishment - so it’s not the hard work bit that gets me, it’s more so the not knowing how Aldi here operates. It’s so unfamiliar to me, and I’m genuinely intrigued and interested to know more.

2023.06.09 15:38 EmperorKonstantine Homebrew race idea: The Skinwalker/Wendigo
My idea is sort of inspired by the core ideas of a skinwalker and a wendigo from native american folklore as well as adding a little bit of spice from pop-culture's understanding of both those creatures for a little more fun. For the sake of simplicity I'll just call them skinwalkers.
The skinwalkers were a race of near perfect hunters decendant from fey that underwent a strange transformation who stalked the woods consuming any poor passerby it could find. Hunted to near extinction by ancient civilizations, only few skinwalkers remain.
Their abilities are a mix and mash of other races abilities+one I made myself:The long reach of a bugbear
The voice mimicry and transformation of a changeling (Except it must be a person the creature has killed before and can only mimic words it has heard by said person)
And finally it has an extra ability to Devour. If a creature is bellow a certain ammount of HP and knocked prone/unconcious, the skinwalker can devour it whole and heal itself with half the HP the creature it was attacking lost.
For the sake of continuity and flavor, I'm gonna say it wouldn't make sense for them to have weapons but to instead intigrate those weapons onto themselves. Example: If it choses a sword that does 2d6 damage, it would instead use it's claws for 2d6 damage. It's fists for bludgeoning and it's teeth for piercing, etc.
I know this requires a lot more work and balancing but the core idea is still there. Tell me what you think

2023.06.09 15:38 FinancialAd3648 I (28m) can’t keep up with my girlfriend (27F) sexually. Is something wrong with me?
You know the drill. Anonymous.
I’m trying to figure out if there’s something wrong with me, or if this is just normal.
My girlfriend has always had a bit of a higher drive than I do, and I have a tough time keeping up.
For me, I can go 2 times a week and be happy. Having sex every day of the week or nearly every day of the week starts to not work so well for me.
I mean I CAN do it, but I don’t have any desire to do it that often.
Let me clarify that sex is pretty much always great. I never have issues with it. It’s not boring, there’s nothing I would change, I am completely happy with it every time it happens. But it’s just not sitting at the forefront of my mind, and it gives diminishing returns the more often it happens. Give me a week in between and it’s incredible. Multiple days in a row? Less incredible.
Is it normal to just not be thinking about / constantly wanting sex as a guy, even though sex is awesome every time we have it? Do I need medication / supplements or something? Thanks.

2023.06.09 15:38 Flapjack_Future Tracking the Passage of Time
I think this flair is right but correct me if I’m wrong!
What are some ways that you all deal with the passage of time in game? In my game right now, a single in-game day can span like 4-5 sessions (which is multiple months of play for us). So, an event that occurred yesterday in-game was multiple months ago. This is tricky for a few reasons: 1) keeping players up-to-date on plot bits (but that’s kind of always a problem) is hard. 2) because of the way in-game vs out-of-game time works I run into issues with the plot beats. For example, in game, a character was visited by an evil entity while they were near death after an encounter in the town. This was like 2 in-game days ago, but IRL like 4 months ago. It feels like I’d be “moving too fast” to push that plot beat further when it realistically was only a few days ago.
I know travel time is a way to help with this, but if the game takes place in a small town then that breaks down. What are some ways that you deal with the issue?

2023.06.09 15:38 jammydodger420 Need some advice on what to do next for bloods.
Right now im on shared care and 4mg daily. Gendercare with endo being Dr Coxon.
I am a University student, and for summer I have gone home. This means that I am pretty far away from my current gp which is located at the University. In mid July I need to have a blood test so my meds can be updated and that. The problem im facing is that I have no idea how I'm meant to take a blood test when I am not near my gp until September. Id rather not have to take trains to go to my gp/hospital (cost, time and how unreliable train times are). Private bloods are a bit too expensive and im not sure if it messes with shared care. I have heard that i can get short term care at my parents gp but idk how accurate that is. I was also thinking of asking Dr Coxon to keep me on 4mg until I go back to university but idk if this is possible. So yea im kinda stuck on what to do and was wondering if anyone knew anything or has been in a similar position before.

A “lead” is simply a phone number that you get from a girl.
In a bar, nightclub, at a mall, at a coffee shop, on the street, etc, the key to sleeping with boatloads of beautiful women is systematically and optimally turning these phone number “LEADS” into meetups (dates) and then into “SEX”.
It will then be your choice if you want to keep the girl around to be part of your “harem” or make her your girlfriend.
So you can think of the process like this: Acquire phone number “lead”
→ Work the lead properly for a meetup (date)
→ close the lead (have sex)
→ retain the girl
→ repeat the process until you have your dream “harem” or “dream girlfriend”.
So as I near the big 1,000 laycount milestone, I decided to spill the beans on my ENTIRE “secret sauce” in FULL DETAIL.
My secret to systematically having sex with 100+ new girls every year.
For those of you who look at my high number of lays as being suspicious, I don’t blame you. But I have documented proof with 100s of hidden camera infield footage videos of me picking up women – which is more than any other pickup artist in the world has ever recorded.
NO WONDER I HAD 245 NEW LAYS LAST YEAR!
No lead is waster
That’s my secret: working leads like a machine.
I got the first highly optimized lead system for dating figured out, I want to give back to the men out there that are struggling. Leverage my years of frustrations to get laid immediately. What is the system? I call it The Lead Machine. Why Machine? Because it works like a damn well-oiled machine! Just put leads in and get pussy out! Here is a sneak peak of what is included:
Massive Master flowchart
Screenshots of conversations utilizing different parts of the chart
Dates Masterclass videos from Occam’s Razor
Videos About Dates Straight to the House
Videos About Closing at the House
Excel Spreadsheet Template for Organizing and Tracking Leads
It’s time to end that frustration, and stop wasting so much energy.
And that for a fraction of the money you are spending away inefficiently.
Stop wasting time and energy.
You don’t have to figure it out all over again. I did that for you. Been there done that.
So here I am offering the product of over ten years of optimizations, and first hand experience.
2023.06.09 15:38 hereticallyeverafter Dear Shea, I haven't forgotten you & sorry for making things weird
Long time listener, first time caller; mobile formatting, sorry for typos, etc etc
Dear Shea: I know you probably don't remember me at all, or if you do, maybe it's hazy. I'm not sure how I ranked to you in order of importance. It's been a long time since UTC, which I guess makes this worse, because I'm still sentimental over this.
Basically, I wanted to say I still remember you. I wish I could say this to you personally, but you were the only person who was kind to me at a time when I had no one. My relationship was falling apart, I was in an abusive, destructive household, "friends" had abandoned me- so many times before class I had been crying in my car, but I came anyway just because I looked forward to seeing you because you were so nice to me, and I don't really know why.
And that sort of leads me to my fuck-up, or as I perceive it anyway. Readers, I did something very horribly stupid.
It was nearing the cut-off for dropping, and I imagine he had higher-level priorities because he stopped coming to the class as regularly, so during a presentation, I sort of noticed his email address on a slide. I thought we were good enough friends at this point that I could explain my motivations after or How or whatever, but, um I was wrong.. lol... I know now, looking back, it's pretty bad firm to email someone out of the blue, but my my internal justification was "I'm losing everybody I care about right now, I don't want to lose him to", and I don't remember exactly what I said, but it was to that effect.
Keep in mind, I hadn't told him what was going on with me, so, out of the blue, I'm sure I made things weird and hastened his exit and fulfilling the very thing I dreaded.
I was so dumb. I wish I HAD trusted him with everything that was going on; maybe he would've been supportive. I was afraid he wouldn't "want to be friends with the sad girl" but that's an unfair thing to project onto someone. I haven't met anyone like him since. He's kind and creative and intelligent. I've never met an irl person before whom I could talk to about my niche interests in spirituality and magick and the demiurge, for example lol
I know we're probably different people now, and I'm sure my actions aren't the SOLE reason he dropped the class, but I -did- get blocked on Facebook (yes I checked, yes we're millenials), and that really really really freaking hurt.
I'm sorry, Shea, for making things weird, for not explaining everything, and if, god help me, you somehow see this, I'm sorry for that too, but I do mean everything. I wish I could explain everything in person to you, my stupid conscience has held onto the guilt for so long. I know "maybe in the next life", but who wants to wait that long?
Anyway, thank you to anyone/everyone who read this far, I know it's not a Spicy Scandal, but it means a lot to my dumb little heart. Don't take people for granted, guys. Always be honest with your loved ones. If you care about someone, let them know. The world is lonely enough as it is without pushing others away. *

2023.06.09 15:38 AndersIsHorny The Secret - Part Seven
| || | submitted by AndersIsHorny to GayShortStories [link] [comments]
Here is part seven of a story that I wrote AGES ago. My writing style was pretty rough back then, so be kind. Love you all and hope that you enjoy! You can find all the other parts here
When I got to Erin’s house I noticed that her brother’s car wasn’t there. He must have decided to be nice and give her some time alone with me. She met me at the door and we got comfortable at her dining room table. The project wasn’t nearly as daunting as it had originally seemed. After getting to work, we managed to finish it up in an hour or so. As we were nearing completion, I snuck a text message to Dmitri. Now.
A minute later my phone rang. I apologized to Erin and answered the phone.
Dmitri apparently decided to get in character so that I didn’t fuck it up. “Hey sweetie, what are you up to?”
“Oh not much. Just at a friend’s house working on a school project.”
“I miss you.”
I shot a nervous glance at Erin, “I miss you too.”
“I had a great time at the movie last weekend.”
“Yeah, I had a good time too. You want to go to the movies again next weekend?”
“Yeah. That would be fun. Don’t try to make out with me during the movie again though or I’ll give you a slap.”
I couldn’t help but laugh at his statement. I might have blushed slightly too. “I won’t, I promise.”
“Ok, I’ve got to run. Want to call me later?”
“Yeah, I’ll call you tonight.”
My heart skipped a beat. Dmitri had never said that to me before and even though we were acting, his voice sounded sincere. My mouth was suddenly very dry and my palms got clammy. “I.. I love you too.” He hung up.
I smiled bashfully and sat back down. Erin was trying her best to play it cool. “I didn’t realize that you were dating.”
“Yeah, I’m kinda… bashful so I don’t talk about things like that at school.”
“You shouldn’t be so bashful. You’re a sweet guy.”
I smiled at her compliment. “Sorry if I gave you the wrong idea last night. I just assumed that there would be no way that you were interested in me. If you even were.” I managed to make it suddenly awkward.
She recovered gracefully, “So how long have you been dating.”
Oh shit. Lying on the fly. Even though I’d been living a lie for so long, lying on the fly was not my specialty. “Well we’ve known each other for a long time but we only started dating recently.”
“Well it sounds like things are going well.” She was referring to the phone call.
“Yeah, we’re basically best friends so we really enjoy spending time with each other.” I was just describing my relationship with Dmitri. I realized that I was playing the pronoun game. I hoped she didn’t notice.
“Well you seem like you’re really happy, I’m glad for you.” She seemed genuine.
We finished up the project and then Erin made us some cold drinks to enjoy by the pool. After a while we got talking and soon discovered that we had quite a bit in common. We both loved spaghetti westerns, were addicted to crime novels, and surprisingly enjoyed the same music. Her music choice the day before had been an attempt to please me. I told her that I was offended that she thought I was the type of guy that would enjoy that kind of music. We quickly lost track of time.
“Shit what time is it?” she picked up my phone and swiped it on to look at the clock. She suddenly had a confused look on her face.
“Your last call was from Dmitri Novak.”
My heart froze. I nodded. Fuck.
“You and Dmitri are dating?” she sounded pleasantly surprised.
“Oh my God! I had no idea you were gay!” She seemed excited by the revelation. Holy shit, I’d just told Erin that I was gay.
“Erin, nobody knows! You can’t tell ANYONE!”
“Why not?” She seemed confused.
“Seriously Erin!” my voice cracked and my eyes started to tear up. “Nobody can find out!”
She sensed my panic. “It’s okay Jasper. I won’t tell anyone.”
“Yes, I promise. Okay? Calm down, you’re scaring me.”
“I would die if people at school found out.”
She spent the next ten minutes assuring me that my secret was safe with her.
I finally managed to calm down a bit. Luckily my stomach was still empty so I didn’t have to worry about getting sick in front of her. I tried my best to compose myself. “What time is your brother going to be back?” I asked nervously. The last thing I needed was them to walk in and see me in this condition.
“Oh he had to go back to college this morning. His girlfriend had some paper or something she had forgotten about so they went back to school.”
“Oh.” I sounded slightly disappointed. I wondered why Riley hadn’t texted me to let me know. I guess I was just some random high school kid that he didn’t really care about. The thought of that didn’t do much to help me regain my composure.
“I’m going to make you dinner.” Erin stood up and collected our empty glasses. “Unless you have other plans that is…” she looked at me.
“No, I was just going to hang out with Dmitri later.”
She suddenly got an idea. “Invite him over! I’ll make you both dinner.”
“I’m not sure if he has plans for dinner…”
“Well, call him silly!”
I reluctantly picked up my cell. How the hell was I going to get myself out of this one. If Dmitri found out that Erin thought we were dating he was going to be furious. He picked up on the first ring.
“Did she buy it?”
“Hey, it’s me… yeah.”
“Nice, I told you she would.”
Erin looked at me expectantly.
“Hey, Erin wanted to know if you’d like to come over and have dinner with us.”
“Wait, does she think you’re talking to your girlfriend or to me?”
I chuckled nervously. “Dmitri you’re such a clown sometimes.”
“She actually wants me to come over for dinner?”
“That’s ok, I figured you’d have plans.”
“No, I don’t have plans. I’ll come over.”
“Oh, ok. Do you need a ride?”
“No, I’ll be over in a few minutes.” He hung up. Fuck.
Erin seemed pleased. “He’s coming over?”
“Yup he’s on his way.” I made a feeble attempt at a smile.
“Do you both like Mexican food? I was thinking of making enchiladas.”
“Yeah we both do.” I was beginning to sweat.
She instructed me to stay put as she went inside to begin dinner.
2023.06.09 15:37 TheAskewOne How I told a customer to go f... themselves, but they had my back and saved my job.
Guess who nearly got their ass fired?
So... the last few days have been tough for reasons not related to work, I'm on edge, and my trigger is shorter than the usual. I'm nearing the end of my shift, I'm tired, we're understaffed, my back aches, there are long lines at the registers, a kid is having a tantrum, it's chaos, aaaaand that's the moment when my manager decides to pull me away from the customer service desk because there's been a spill and Bradley is new and doesn't seem to be able to clean it by himself. Thing is, I'm alone at the customer service desk running returns that won't process for no reason, there are four people waiting and they look like they're pissed (and rightly so, we've been so understaffed lately that customer service has been crap).
There's a guy who is in the line, and has been for at least 10 minutes (that's how good our customer service has become). He overhears my manager asking me to take care of the spill.
Customer:"Hey, what about you don't ask the special needs guy to clean, it's going to take forever."
That's when I hear myself answer: "Hey, what about you go fuck yourself?"
A few very long seconds of deadly silence, my manager looking at me in horror, and I'm just here with my mouth still open and dying inside.
Customer: "fair enough".
Me: "I'm sorry I don't know what possessed me I apologize. I'm really really sorry."
Customer: "no, fair enough, I shouldn't have called you special needs. It was very inappropriate. I deserved it. That wasn't a thing to say. Actually *I* apologize. Don't worry about it, we all have a short fuse at times. Actually this was rather funny."
Me: "Well Sir I can just say, it's not how I do customer service usually. Again I apologize."
Thankfully his wife/girlfriend who waiting nearby found the situation hilarious too, that helped defusing everything. The customer went to talk to my manager (who seemed to be under shock) and asked him not to chew my ass because he had said something inappropriate first and we all make mistakes. Needless to say I thanked him profusely. My manager sent me to clean the spill then called me to the office, I got a write-up but I'm not being fired.
We all write complain about bad customers, so I thought it was only fair to mention how a good customer saved me from my own fuck-up. And now I'm going to work on understanding why being called "special needs" made me irrationally angry.

Steps to efficiently clean the grill?
I’ve been on grill, open/close and everything but always had my manager clean it for me as a favor for always finishing out the store by 10:30. But the manager I close with tonight is a frail ass dick who doesn’t help with anything. Any tips truly help. I know I have to scrap the leftover scraps off at the end, but what comes after that?

2023.06.09 15:37 dbgnihd I can't decide between jobs
Hi! For context, I am a 22 year old university student and I am about to graduate and begin my first ever proper job in Spain teaching English. My university degree is Spanish, Catalan and Japanese. I took a year out last year to study abroad in Barcelona and Tokyo.
I have received three job offers from three different companies: one in Madrid and two in Girona, Catalonia. It was pure coincidence that I received two offers for Girona as I only had preference over region (I chose Catalonia).
I originally wanted to live in Barcelona again, but it is hard to find work there, the rent is high and my girlfriend who lives there broke up with me. I then decided that I wanted to try other places and then got offered Madrid. Weeks later, I received offers for Girona, which is roughly an hour away from Barcelona by train.
All three jobs are very similar but with a few crucial differences: Madrid pays more (around 1000€, Girona pays 800-850€), two of the jobs are in private schools and in Madrid it'll be much harder to practice Catalan.
I cannot find too many places to rent in Girona, however there are many in Madrid. I feel bad that I have the opportunity to keep learning both Catalan and Spanish in Girona, but I feel it will be more realistic to move to Madrid. I would have an agent to help me move to Girona and find a place (ideally for myself).
I feel bad because Girona would be closer to the experience I had in Barcelona.
I also need to add that I am able to study Catalan (and Japanese) in Madrid in language schools, however it wouldn't be the same as using it every day in Girona.
The situation at the moment is: I have been accepted into Madrid, on the condition that I get an appointment for my visa (I am nearly done with getting documents, I need them to book an appointment). I also have been given an offer by one company in Girona and awaiting confirmation with the other.
I really don't know what to do, I like both places and both schools sound really nice. I am torn between where to choose.

2023.06.09 15:36 Tabby_Tem It is a couple of days late, but here is a little Birthday haul 🎂🎉
| || |
I visited Portland for the first time on my Birthday and knew I needed to stop at Kinokuniya (now I wish there was one closer to me lol). I picked up the art books while in Portland, Kaguya-Sama for a good deal used online, and the rest at a cute locally owned book store in Eugene OR. Now I have plenty to read this Summer ☀️ submitted by Tabby_Tem to MangaCollectors [link] [comments]
2023.06.09 15:36 FergusCragson John 4:46-54 (Friday, June 9, 2023)
Dear Lord, Thank you for this time together. Thank you for being with us as we read and study your word. Please speak into the hearts of each who come here each day to read your word. The world has a lot of trouble these days; violence and wars, wildfires and storms; pollution, diseases, addictions, worry for our loved ones, and loneliness. Thank you for coming into our world to be with us in our troubles, and to help us through them. Please do help each of us here, and all in need. In Jesus' name we ask this. Amen!
John 4:46-54, New International Version 46 Once more he visited Cana in Galilee, where he had turned the water into wine. And there was a certain royal official whose son lay sick at Capernaum. 47 When this man heard that Jesus had arrived in Galilee from Judea, he went to him and begged him to come and heal his son, who was close to death.
48 “Unless you people see signs and wonders,” Jesus told him, “you will never believe.”
49 The royal official said, “Sir, come down before my child dies.”
50 “Go,” Jesus replied, “your son will live.”
The man took Jesus at his word and departed. 51 While he was still on the way, his servants met him with the news that his boy was living. 52 When he inquired as to the time when his son got better, they said to him, “Yesterday, at one in the afternoon, the fever left him.”
53 Then the father realized that this was the exact time at which Jesus had said to him, “Your son will live.” So he and his whole household believed.
54 This was the second sign Jesus performed after coming from Judea to Galilee.
THOUGHTS and COMMENTS
This is a story of belief: of faith, of trust. Can the man trust Jesus? Can we?
The distance from Cana to Capernaum is about 26.5 kilometers, or nearly 16.5 miles. The man, hearing that Jesus is back from Judea and fearing for his son's life, makes the trek, finally finding Jesus in Cana.
Jesus' response seems to be testing the man, even in his distress. It is almost as though Jesus is saying, "Can you trust me without me showing you a miracle right now?" The man replies, "Anyway Sir, please hurry up and come with me." And so the challenge comes: "Go. Your son will live."
Feel free to leave any thoughts, comments, or questions of your own!
- How do you picture the man responding? Does he turn and go immediately, or does he first start to say something, recall what Jesus has just challenged him with about belief, and then go? Having gone, what kinds of feelings was he experiencing as he began the long journey back, spending one night without yet hearing the results?
- How do you think you would have responded?
- Have you ever felt like God has challenged you to trust Him for something you've asked for, sight unseen, which was at that point yet to come?
Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. Hebrews 11:1, New American Standard Bible 1995

2023.06.09 15:35 yorrrforger 21 [F] Virginia - Looking for a lifelong player 2
Hiiii! This is my first time posting on a subreddit like this hence the new account, but I wanted to give it a go anyways to see what magic could be had.
Are you looking for a fun but supportive partner? Someone who will hype you up? Someone you can banter with and game with? Well look no further because I’m here to fulfill those roles~
First, I want to say that I prefer if you are 21-24 and located near Virginia or along the east coast. I may not mind further if we connect and click, but I strongly prefer near me!
I’m a 21 year old college student who has dark brown hair with blonde highlights. My friends say I have the prettiest green eyes and fair skin, so I’d like to think I look pretty cute :P
As for who I am, I’m a very big nerd! I love all things anime and manga related, especially with the Pokémon series. It’s been my big favorite since I was small. It’s a part of my childhood. I mainly play video games during my free time, but I often go out for walks, bake, learn how to crochet, photography, and such. ✨ I also really love animals!
I tend to be a mixture. My friends like to call me a gremlin for the chaos I give but I can often be sweet. I love affection! I tend to be full of energy and apparently just attracts people in haha. I always mean to give my full effort and attention to my partner, my friends, and family! I also make some crude jokes, so you’ll have to excuse me saying a DEEZ nuts joke here and there :P.
Now what do I want? Most importantly, someone to be there for me and praise me. To validate me and whisper sweet things to me. ❤️
I want someone who will put in their full effort and make me their priority while respecting my boundaries and needs. I’d highly prefer if you were a gamer too! But I do want you to be loyal and mesh with my sense of humor. Someone who’s willing to watch TV shows with me too. That’s really attractive to me. :)
I’m really turned off by smoking of any sorts or addiction to alcohol. Drinking is fine but on limited terms for me. I would like it if we could go to the gym together some day, so I’d prefer someone looking to stay fit!
I’m sorry if that’s a lot haha ^
But, I hope to see what comes! What magic will happen!~ Send me a chat if you think we could connect 😜

2023.06.09 15:35 d4vyd69 i get no hoes
Hello.Im David and Im 17.I realised i just talk to girls,dont know how to act and im actually really awkward and shy near them.Dont know where the problem is.I dont wanna sound arrogant but i got really good sense of humour and got really good friends that i can talk to without being awkward in any way.I dont know whats causing all this but some time before i realised that sometimes i get really toxic when i dont feel the same vibe im giving to them.Some girls flirt with me (i cant really tell if they are joking or not since no one ever flirted with me before).I would not even say im bad looking or something.It is just something inside of me that i cant break.I cant imagine myself doing the first move.Never.And when it comes to me liking some girl i usually fumble it hard.I become so obsessive when i like someone.I could think about her all day but i just cant text her because im scared of becoming a meme in groupchat.U could probably tell i never had a girlfriend by the things i mentioned.So could u guys give me seome help? Thanks to everyone who decided to read it all luv ya

2023.06.09 15:35 nQue Does anybody want the CNC hot-wire foamcutter machine I'm making?
I'm making an 8-axis CNC (i.e. computer controlled) hot-wire foamcutter for cutting styrofoam into custom shapes.
I'm here to check if people are interested in having such a machine and to ask what aspects of the machine are important to the /RCPlanes
The machine is useful for cutting accurate wing shapes and fuselage shapes for RC airplanes, or any other type of craft that need a core of styrofoam (EPS).
It is also useful for quickly making statue-like objects in a scale much larger than what you can produce with a 3D printer.
Essentially, you'd design the shape you want as one (or many) vector-based graphics file(s) in any graphics program or CAD program of your choosing, and then you'd import the file(s) into my custom software tool, put a styrofoam block in the machine, and the machine would cut the block into the shape you designed.
Later, aside from just working with 2D vector based files, I'll implement the ability to slice 3D model files as well.
The 8 axis gives you quite a lot of freedom in the shape of your object. For example: it can make linear interpolations between two wing profiles in a single cut.
I've used an earlier version of the machine to cut a swept tapered wing with wash-out in a single pass.
The machine can rotate the styrofoam block while cutting, so it can also make cylinder-esque rounded shapes. By stacking (and gluing) many pieces together you get nearly infinite freedom in the final assembled object. Technically, you can crank out Michelangelos statue of David
, with a resolution only limited by your patience in how thin pancakes you're willing to cut and glue up.
If you want to make a small thing then the styrofoam might be strong enough on its own, or if you want to make a big thing then you'd simply laminate the surface of the styrofoam with paperfibeglassfibecarbonfiber until you reach the strength you require. For most RC aircraft it should be plenty good enough to laminate with paper fibers.
I'm making this foamcutter good enough to be released as a product, and intend to sell it as a kit you can assemble yourself.
But I'm also considering to make the design open-source, so that people can amend, modify, expand and re-size the machine as they require. You'd be able to manufacture almost the entire machine yourself, if you don't want to buy all of it.
The main version of the machine will work with both 110V and 220V AC.
I'm making the main version of the machine so that it unfolds to a size where it is able to cut styrofoam in the insulation block sizes you buy straight from the home-improvement stores, without having to pre-cut them first.
Those blocks are roughly 10 x 60 x 120 cm in both USA and Europe, and one typically costs €7 to buy.
This means that in the unfolded state the machine is the same size as a full-size refrigerator (70 x 70 x 200 cm). But when you fold it down it becomes more like just the door of a full-size refrigerator (70 x 15 x 200 cm).
So it will not occupy your entire garage when not in use, but it'll still be big, and it will need to be mounted against the wall.
But I'm considering to release it in a smaller version as well, though I don't know if anyone would be interested in that, since the price would be almost the same as the big machine.
This machine is intended for hobbyists and beginner professionals ("pro-sumers") that have a need to produce accurate and complex lightweight shapes on a scale unattainable by a 3D printer.
I'm designing this machine with myself as the primary customer, and I will use it to produce the foamcores of a 6+ meter large carbon fiber project.
QUESTIONS FOR THE /RCPlanes COMMUNITY:
- If this machine was cheap enough, would you spend the floorspace on having one? And what would you use it for?
- What price makes sense for you, for such a product (a complete kit that you assemble yourself)?
- Would you rather have a smaller machine, and accept that you could only cut much smaller blocks, even though the price would be nearly the same?
- Is it important for you that the machine has open-sourced its design, so that you can produce parts for it yourself?
I'm making an 8-axis CNC (i.e. computer controlled) hot-wire foamcutter for cutting styrofoam into custom shapes.
I'm here to check if people are interested in having such a machine and to ask what aspects of the machine are important to the /RCPlanes

2023.06.09 15:35 Jazzlike_Guidance_47 could anybody please help me out with 5-10 bucks or perhaps a grocery store gift card....?
I have no food at all in my apartment and I am really going thru it at the moment.
this is a throwaway and I can provide my main if anybody wants it.
can repay or pay forward.
don’t have any family or friends to rely on for support, don’t necessarily need money... just help with food.
