2023.04.02 08:02 Own_Willingness_3153 Making sister sister split costs for vacations.

I (25f) have a younger sister (22f) who I go on several (3-7) vacations with every year. Usually, it is camping and short cabin stays. We have been wanting to travel to further places (Hawaii, Mexico, Florida)for a while now. I purchased a time share/travel plan this year that will pay for the actual lodging to travel to further locations. But with this comes rental car fees and airplane rides.
Up until now I have been paying for most of the vacations we go on expenses being like food, gas, all of camping supplies for camping, hotels, activities, with the exception of her putting 50 down for groceries, or paying for a meal usually once per trip on 5 night trips.
Even when we go out to eat or go on day trips, she never pays for food, or activities just expects me to do it.
I don't make that much money, for the last few years, I have worked two full time jobs during the winter, to pay for us to travel during the summer and to pay off student loans, my car, save up for a house, etc.
In previous years, I have asked her to pay for more expenses, and she has always said she can't. She doesn't make as much money as me. In the last year or so, she has started working at a newer place and makes significantly more than I do compared to my main job. 30$ hr compared to 23$. I have asked for her to pay for more in light of that, not more than me, just split. She says I still make more than she does per taxes (because I work 80-90 hours a week during the winter). Every time I have brought it up, we just get into arguments.
I love traveling with her, she is my best friend. I am introverted and do not have anyone else I can travel with, but she also does not see how draining it is to pay for so much every time we go out. I do not mind spending money on her or others when we go out, but I do not think it should be an expectation. Any advice?

2023.04.02 07:54 rapsfan10 Aggressive Dogs at Taylor Bay

Looking to take my little ones out to Taylor Bay for a beach day in a few weeks. Just reading recent trip advisor reports and online posts/reviews about some aggressive dogs owned by someone with a property there roaming the beach and multiple reports of dog attacks/bites.
Just wondering if anyone’s been there recently or has seen these dogs? Not looking to spend on a clinic visit or shots this vacation.

2023.04.02 06:17 kev595 Roadtrip from hell with Rivian R1T

Long time looker and first time posting.
I’ve been following this sub and Rivian R1T for a while, had my deposit in Nov 2021 and received the truck in Dec 2022. Since then, it’s mainly been my daily drive, replaced 2010 Odyssey. It drives night and day compared to the minivan. In meanwhile, made one trip from Westchester, NY to South Jersey, had to make one stop at an EVgo on the way back and it worked fine.
Fast forward to this week, kids are off from school next week and decided to go to Orlando and would be fun roadtrip. Since new to EV, decided to test out few more different DC Fast charging, both EA, EVgo and ChargePoint. EA and ChargePoint worked fine but EVgo was hit or missed. With some confidence, left the house on early Thursday and was planning to spend the night in NC, with little kids, it’s almost impossible to made it down in a day. Plus our check in to the resort was Friday.
The first day, things went great. We stopped at 2 EA stations, both at Walmart and it started to charge right away. Pull in to a station, open the charge port, plug-in and follow the instructions on the screen or start from the app then plug in. Also, driving was with Driver+, felt more relax and less tired. We arrived at the overnight hotel on time, the hotel had slow L2 charger - 6kw but it was going to be 100% by the the time we are leaving the next day.
On Second day, even with the slower charger, the truck was 100% ready to go. We grabbed some breakfast and hit the road. We made our way to our first stop at another EV station and things went smoothly, like the day before and hit the road again. Now it was around lunch time and time for another charge. I dropped off the wife and kids at the mall and headed crossed the street to another EV station at Walmart. Pull in and plug in, used the RFID reader to get it going and nothing. The station is stuck on initialing charging and the truck is saying starting charging but nothing happened. So I moved to another station and same. I called the EA service center and was on the phone with them for 30 mins, in meanwhile, wife is keep calling to see when I’m coming over. Even after the reset of the station, nothing worked. Other EVs comes and goes and no problem, even at the station that I was not able to charge. I began to google anything I can find on this issue and hard reset or letting the truck go to sleep for 30 mins may fix the issue. And tried both, nothing. This is definitely the issue with the truck, not the charging station. Now, I’m going crazy, worries started to set in. We are no where close to Orlando, probably another 4.5hrs driving to go and the truck is down to 20% or so. I now go back to pick up the family at mall and saw a L2 charger and plugged it in and it began to charge but at 9kw/hr. We decided to hang around a little longer here add while we look for options. We searched PlugShares and found another DC Fast Charge, about 30 miles away, ChargePoint 125kw stations. We made our way there and nothing, same as EA. Now, we are calling the Rivian Service for an assistance. The service rep I spoke with was very nice and suggested we find a hotel nearby with EV to stay overnight. He was going to set up an appointment with the Orlando Service Center and arrange a rental for us while we stayed there. We didn’t know how these 2 star hotels are so much more expensive when booking on the day of you are staying. Now, we are losing a day at the resort we were planning to stay at and needed to stay in GA. We were all so stressed and exhausted by now and accepted the fact that we have another tough day ahead of us. Luckily was able to find a hotel with L2 charger and book a room. Checked in for the night and plugged in the truck for the night. I don’t even know if Rivian will pick up the tab on this.
Day 3, 3am, I can’t even sleep and now thinking how I’m going to even go back home even if it’s fixed. By 9am, the truck is 97% and hit the road to Jacksonville FL. Overnight, Rivian sent location of L2 charging locations and a rental reservation information. We make our way to Jacksonville and stopped to have lunch, add a little so that we can made it over to Orlando. But now we can’t make it on time to pickup the rental, all Enterprise closes at 2pm on Saturday, except the airport. In meantime, we spoke with few different Rivian Service reps and they were all nice but no one is telling me definite details or going out of the way to help. Now, we are all so tired and stressed, this is not something we wanted to go through during our vacation. We talked to Rivian again, changed the rental car reservation to airport pick up, pick up rental and finally able to dropped off the truck at the service center with 8% to go. Of course the service center is closed and all of their L2 charger are being used so I just parked the truck, leave the key in the drop box and finally checked into the resort.
Now what? The truck will probably die, I would be very surprise if it still has some power left on Monday morning when the service center opens. And will it be fix on time for us to drive it back? It’s an understatement to just say my wife is mad. My wife is insisting that we don’t drive the truck back and I don’t blame her, I feel the same way. We are leaving early Friday to go back to and we all need to be back at work, school next week. All the service reps that we spoke with are nice and like I said no one is going out of the way to take care of the issue. Having a loner at the service center would have been definitely nice, instead of making another stop at the airport. This is the last thing I want to deal with during the vacation. It will be definitely a vacation to remember years from now and laugh about it but for now I’m extremely disappointed and upset. I still have another reservation on R1S for wife but will probably cancel it when it’s called up. I realize now have $85k vehicle that is “home range” only, reliable on home charge but cannot rely on DC Fast charge because it will either be the truck or the charging station with issues. Seriously doubting about keeping the truck.

2023.04.02 04:52 nordavinden2019 [TOMT][BOOK][2000s] YA novel with ghost wandering shore with husband’s head in a basket

There’s a YA novel I read at some point in the last 10 years maybe with a scene where the main character (and his friend?) has to go to this beach at night to find a ghost so that they can get assimilated to the ghostly auras. They find this ghost woman wandering the shore, searching for her husband. They help her find his body and find out that she had his head in a basket that she carried. Help me figure out what book this is!

2023.04.02 04:46 buckleysfalls So I had CHATGPT write a poem about Geelong. Think I want to move to this version of Geelong. hehe.

Geelong, a city by the bay,
Where history and progress play,
Where culture thrives and nature blooms,
A place of beauty, a land of rooms.
The foreshore's sandy stretch so wide,
The gentle waves that lap the tide,
A place to rest and catch some sun,
Or splash around and have some fun.
The promenade that lines the shore,
A place to walk and to explore,
The pier that stretches out so far,
A place to fish, a place to star.
The gardens, parks, and open spaces,
A haven for all of life's graces,
From Eastern Beach to the Botanic Gardens,
A world of wonder that never hardens.
The skyline filled with towers tall,
The bells of churches that do call,
The old buildings steeped in history,
A sight to see, a true mystery.
The wool mills, factories, and foundries,
A testament to Geelong's past glories,
Now transformed to shops and cafes,
A place to gather, a place to laze.
The streets that wind and twist and turn,
A place to learn and to discern,
From the CBD to the outer suburbs,
A place to live and to disturb.
The people of Geelong, so diverse,
From all walks of life, they do converse,
A friendly lot, a welcoming bunch,
A place to call home, a place to crunch.
So here's to Geelong, a city so grand,
A place to visit, a place to stand,
A place to call home, a place to be,
Geelong, the city by the sea.

2023.04.02 04:29 bitter_stream Another terrible trip...

I've posted here pretty frequently over the last few years about my JNMIL. I'm back after another awful visit. Here is a little background info to help understand family dynamics:
-My husband (39M) and I (33F) have been together for 13 years, married for 4. -Shortly after we bought our home and got engaged we were given emergency custody of SILs child through foster care. He was 7 months old at the time. Rights were terminated and his adoption was finalized at 2.5 y/o. He is now 5. -We had a biological child as we were going through the adoption process of our son. My almost 3 y/o son was 2 months old at the adoption finalization of older son - Husband has 3 siblings. 2 are currently incarcerated with felony charges and have struggled with substance abuse for more than 10 years and are completely enabled by they're mother. The other likely has a drinking problem but is independent and doesn't communicate with his mother. -My husband is a kind, hard-working man who forgives far too easily and can be steamrolled. He feels a deep sense of responsibility and obligation to his family of origin. He is 5, 7, and 16 years older than his siblings so often plays a paternal role to them. -JNMIL moved across the country a few months after my son's adoption was finalized so for the majority of this saga of me standing up for myself, she's been out of state
Historically, I kept my mouth shut when JNMIL would abuse my husband. I was raised to be respectful towards adults so I just followed my husband's lead. There were a few times in the first 10 years that I would interject, but it was pretty rare. The night before my wedding my JNMIL went absolutely crazy at me. She referred to me as her son's future ex wife and told me my family didn't love me. She also called me a bitch and stormed out of the rehearsal dinner. It was horrible but I moved on and didn't let it impact our relationship. Then, I became a mother. I refused to allow her to treat me, my husband, or my children in this same way. Everything went downhill at the adoption finalization of my son. Since then she and I have had almost no communication that wasn't hostile (read history).
We just got back from a visit to see her. This was the fourth time we rescheduled from Christmas due to flight cancellations. We flew in late Monday night and had an early flight home on Friday morning so we were only going to be in town for 3 days. Of course, she started to bitch at my husband that we were only coming in for a few days and that we were staying too far from her condo (4 miles, 12 minutes). I was annoyed because she was in town for one of her kids court cases the week before. She demanded to see my husband but didn't make any attempt to see our children while she was in town.
Tuesday morning my husband was getting the rental car and she's calling him nonstop yelling at him that we're not there yet. It wasn't even 10 am yet and our flight arrived super late - close to midnight the night before. We arrive to her condo around 11 and she pulls out the kids Christmas gifts. It's an obnoxious scene - so much crap that they don't need and we can't even bring back with us because we are flying. She is rushing my kids and telling them they're opening the gifts too slowly. It's obnoxious. We try to give her the present we got for her and she won't open it. The day goes on and she isn't even interacting with my kids because she refuses to be near me. Every time I walk into a room, she leaves. The kids obviously want to be around me so she gets very little interaction with them. By 6pm I'm begging my husband to figure out what's going on for food since she didn't have lunch for us. He suggests we go to dinner and she talks about making food. It was a dish the kids wouldn't eat so I kindly ask if we can just save half a chicken breast and cook it plain for the kids. She sends her husband to go get chicken nuggets for the boys and then I start cutting up veggies. The food never gets cooked, though, and we end up ordering pizza at 8pm. Then, as we are trying to leave, she pulls my husband aside to bitch about the gift we gave her. It was a digital photo frame where we could upload pictures because she's always complaining that she doesn't get any pictures of the kids. She tells my husband that the gift is stupid and she's going to throw it in the ocean. My husband sits there while she yells at him. When we go to leave, she's still mad and we can't find her. We say goodbye to her husband and she's outside as we leave. She embraces my 5 y/o and says to him "I miss you the best" and doesn't even say anything to my 2.5 y/o. I tell him to "say goodbye to Grandma" and he does and she doesn't respond. I point it out to my husband who claims he didn't notice it but says he won't tolerate that.
The next day, she's a little better about interacting with my 5 y/o but stays clear of the 2.5 y/o because he's mainly with me. I told my husband I couldn't stay there all day again and told him we need to go out for dinner instead of dealing with the nonsense from the night before. Early on he's talking about making reservations and she yells at him about not making reservations before we arrived and not planning things (he tried but she shot everything down). My husband makes a 6pm dinner reservation for all of us but when the time comes to leave she refuses to come and then later calls my husband to tell him how selfish we are for going to dinner and for treating this trip as a family vacation and not allowing her to spend time with the boys. She's literally insane. My husband listens and doesn't put her in her place.
Then the last day. I had told my husband that all I wanted to do was go to the beach and that I was sick of visiting JNMIL and just sitting in her condo and not doing things. This is how it's been every time we've visited. So I told him that he needed to tell her that we were going to go to the beach and she could meet us there. She told him she couldn't handle the beach due to her health. She also told him she was upset because it didn't seem like the 2.5 year old liked her. This is crazy because this child throws himself at her for attention (drives me crazy) and she just gives him nothing. Anyway, we went to her house in the late morning with plans to go to the beach in the afternoon. Around 1 I was starving so I suggested we go eat. We went to a restaurant and invited his mom but she said no. Then she showed up at the restaurant after we ordered. When the food arrived she began cutting up and FEEDING my 5 y/o! It was so uncomfortable to watch. When he said no she would give it to my 2.5 year old. Then my husband was cutting up the younger ones food and she snapped at my husband and said "This isn't a competition!" He just says "I know" and then she says under her breath "you're just a bunch of assholes". I tell her not to use that language and try to tell my husband what she said but he didn't respond. Then she left the restaurant.
We go back to her house and even though we left the restaurant after her (and walked when she drove) we arrive before her. When she gets there she sits down and starts saying to her husband while we're all around "Well, they're going to go to the beach. Its obviously a set up because they don't think I'll go. The only one who actually wants me around is 5y/o. They are just setting me up but I obviously have to go if I want to see 5 y/o". I'm tired of this so I say to my husband, "You should probably be a part of this conversation". She tells me not to talk, that she wasn't talking to me. And I stand up to her and tell her what she is saying is ridiculous and if she has concerns or questions she should have a conversation instead of whatever she's doing. She gets mad and starts yelling at me so I say, "Alright guys, it's time to go to the beach. Say goodbye to Grandma". She gets angry and starts screaming at me that she's their grandmother and it's not a competition. I say, "you're right, it's not a competition. I'm their mother". Then she goes, "I know" and starts mimicking how I use my 5y/o full name to redirect him. She did this because she's mad we changed his last name with the adoption (even though it's the same last name as 2 of her kids). Then she tells my son to go to me but uses my first name, not mom. Which she has never done before and I'm certain was a slight that I'm not his biological mom. We leave and she's ridiculous. I tell her not to come to the beach. She has since been calling my husband nonstop. She wanted us to come back to her house for one final goodbye because she claims to be dying. I told my husband I was not going back to the house and if she wanted to say bye to the kids again she could go to the beach. She didn't.
She continues to call my husband and is saying how selfish we are and all this nonsense. I'm so over all of this crap. I hate her and would gladly just completely cut her out of our lives but my husband won't allow it. This has ruined my relationship with my husband and the resentment is deep. I'm pissed he checks out when we're around her and avoids tackling things honestly with her. He has been more supportive of me but he is not engaged enough to truly acknowledge the abuse. I've thought about divorce but it scares me that he would take the kids to see her without me present and he would be disengaged and not protect them from things she does and say. Through it all, I do know he is trying to do what I need but I am not sure he is capable because he is just showing a trauma response when he interacts with her.
I also feel terrible because despite all her abuse, my kids like her. It drives me insane. My son was really upset about leaving and that killed me. I explained to him that sometimes grandma isn't nice to mom when that happens we have to leave because it's my job to keep us all safe. I'm not sure if that was the right thing to do or not.
I don't really know why I'm posting, just needed to type this up. I am proud of myself for not going back to her house. I am proud for leaving. I just wish she didn't have such an impact on my life or relationship.

2023.04.02 04:15 tannh_06 Memoir: Chinese Indie Music and My Musical Experience

Oftentimes, life doesn’t play out like Disney movies; there are no sudden revelations or moments of eureka. Rather, the meaning of life and all its beauty is understood through a series of events: some of them joyful, some of them not; some of them intended, some of them unexpected.
They just happen.
The beauty just happens.
In my case, the MUSICAL EXPERIENCE just happened, and it led me to Chinese indie music.
1
It was an early winter day in Beijing - the fierce wind was blowing off the remnants of fallen leaves from the roadside trees. The sky was covered with a dense mixture of fog and clouds that I could hardly distinguish one from the other. Below the greyish sky, people walked in a hurry for mundane businesses they would forget about in a week, all of them detaching themselves temporarily from the world with their headphones, dreading the sound of their ordinary life.
A scene of almost mournful modernity.
And it was on this very day that indie music stepped into my life. I was walking home with my headphones plugged in, playing songs that were never known publicly in the introverted oriental land, but were once icons of popular culture on the other side of the planet. The distorted guitars gave me chills, and yet my heart was still empty. I was missing something important from the music.
“Classic rock songs weren’t enough,” I thought. I knew I must seek something buried deep in my cultural roots. Using the online music forums on my phone, I quickly found a few mandarin albums from the 2000s that I’d never listened to before and skimmed through their descriptions before click playing of Wan Xiaoli’s 2002 album 走过来 走过去 (Walking Here and There).
As I continued to read more about the albums, the word popped up… Indie. I continued to read: “it commonly refers to music produced independently from major record labels.” Simultaneously, a surprising serenity flowed through my head as the strumming acoustic guitar and Wan’s humming vocals created a tune like no other.
Wan’s music was of simplicity, and yet it discussed such a variety of subjects, ranging from the most commonly described love for mother to international relationships and warfare. However, it was the musical experience that made his music particularly special for me. Standing in a city street full of people but with no one willing to share their true selves with the world, I sensed the essence of Wan’s music: his sincerity and bursting emotions. These two features touched me deeply. The stories Wan told, the tales he sang, and the emotions he conveyed filled the hole in my heart with a medley of nostalgia, ecstasy, and desolation- the complex emotions I needed most on a cold winter day to vitalize my thoughts and fill my senses.
That was my first “musical experience”. Through it, I saw a realm of emotions surrounding me, kaleidoscopic scenes disguised in the form of the gently played notes and softly whispered tales. I had started to grasp what was hidden beneath indie music’s sincerity.
2
Unlike the first, my second musical experience happened during the summer. It was an ideal afternoon on the weekend: I had finished my work and was taking a nap after lunch. Some forty minutes later, the fat old sun beamed through the window and woke me up.
My head felt dizzy; I didn’t want to get up. Instead, I turned on my random music playlist and stayed in bed. When the first notes of the song played out, I immediately recognized the song without looking at its title. It was 河北墨麒麟 (The Black Qilin of Hebei) from the prominent Chinese indie rock band Omnipotent Youth Society.
The song unfolded with a slow-tempo lead-in using drums, bass, and some additional sound effects that illuminated the atmosphere, as if to match my drowsy mood. However, the song quickly turned to a progressive rock approach with the addition of guitars and brass instruments. Slowly yet steadily, the song pushed itself to climax, the part by which I gradually awoke. Listening to all the instruments playing in harmony was absolute satisfaction. The band performed it so well that, even without touching lyrics like Wan Xiaoli’s songs, it still moved me with the melody and the instrumentation.
Then the musical experience began: I visualized the song’s orchestral arrangements colliding with the rock elements like waves crashing against the shore, and I lay there in the intertidal zone, sensing the dynamics and movements from both sides of my body. My room fell apart, replaced by the boundless ocean; the roof above me changed into gigantic coconut leaves, casting shadows over the beach.
No, it can’t be. The song wasn’t about relaxation. Behind those musical shores were hidden dangers – the distorted guitars rumbling in the back, the inharmonic chords crawling beneath the surface. Though they were there from the start, they went unnoticed through their silent endurance, as if they were the staff of a grand show all hidden behind the curtain. Suddenly shocked by the screaming vocals, I saw the Qilin, the sacred mythological creature, emerging from the ocean. It dragged me downstream, all the way to Hebei, the industrial province of China, the hometown of the band.
Hebei is the nearest province to Beijing, but being close to the capital city didn’t benefit it; behind the rapid development of Beijing was the suffering of Hebei in multiple aspects. The province took in blue-collar workers and people Beijing left behind; it also endured the long-term aftermath of extensive industrialization to support the capital city’s economy. That’s where the Qilin took me. I could hear the place’s migrant workers calling for a way out; I could see their repetitive, hopeless lives spent serving “the common good”.
As the screaming vocals floated away, the song came to a close. The musical experience was over, and yet its effects were long-lasting. I understood that another essential part of Chinese indie music is its “Chinese” characteristics. It talked about the people on the same land as me; it is all about the emotions that my fellow countrymen experienced. Most importantly, they were not the emotions I saw in the newspapers and at the downtown centers; they were true, personal emotions that I felt connected with.
3
After everything Chinese indie music had given me, I was determined to offer something back. This autumn, I conducted a study on the cultural elements of Chinese indie music and the factors influencing them. I reviewed various academic sources on the topic, identified different cultures incorporated in Chinese indie music, and collected data from both personal experiences and online data. Ultimately, I came up with an academic paper and presented my results.
From my research, I concluded that the cultural category of ethnic folk (which illustrates lives in a certain region) is more likely to incorporate regional cultural elements. However, stylized indie (which employs various western music styles as the basis) was less likely to refer to regional culture. The mechanism behind the first claim was simple: ethnic folk songs tended to illustrate themes of a certain region; however, the low incorporation of regional culture in stylized indie was a likely result of the genre’s huge application of western music styles.
Furthermore, I recognized that socio-economic status (henceforth referred to as SES) was a determining factor in the cultural incorporation of Chinese indie music. In general, with lower SES came higher rates of regional culture incorporation, and with higher SES came higher rates of general traditional culture incorporation. The finding was consistent with my own observations. Growing up in an urban megacity and the cultural center of China, I was taught from a young age to recognize the importance of general traditional culture, as was the band JaJaTao from Beijing which implemented the traditional Chinese instrument suona into noise rock. Nevertheless, when I reviewed music from Gansu, my ancestral home and also a low-SES region, I found them mostly discussing the local customs and regional landmarks in a native tone. For example, the yellow river appeared multiple times as a motherly figure in the Gansu band Low Wormwood’s songs.
Through research, I created my own musical experience, one not of imagination, but of real-life achievement. They seemed to be disparate, but in essence, they were all rooted in my cultural resonance with Chinese indie music.
From simply feeling the musical experience to creating my own musical experience, I became imbued by Chinese indie music.
The musical experience just happened, and I found meaning in it. I found myself.

After seeing an AI generated voice of Drake singing “Bubbly” I got curious…
I spelt Nicki Minaj incorrectly and it was still able to figure it out! It’s crazy what AI is able to accomplish. I found this rap absolutely hilarious. What does this mean for the music industry?

2023.04.02 03:53 Avachiel Kayaking the Lighthouse Route

Hello everyone
My wife and I are taking our first vacation together in 9 years!
We really want to kayak the light house route. I did it once with a school science trip and I recall it being gorgeous.
However, that was with the safety of like 50 people in a group and was organized by people smarter than me.
I have a few questions:
  1. I can only find kayak rentals on the map before the ferry - on the island where you would go to the lighthouse route I can't find any. Are there actually kayak rentals out there?
  2. Is it safe for two inexperienced kayakers to do this route?
  3. I'm expecting to pay like $40 a person, is that fair?
Thanks in advance for all your advice.

2023.04.02 02:44 chris_zg Beginner Questions Setup / Location

I’d like to give Surf Fishing a try and have some questions. I live in SoCal and will be visiting Bolsa Chica State Beach tomorrow. I have a 9ft Med. Heavy Rod with a 6000 Reel. This was passed down to me as a combo. Will this suffice? I also have a 3000 Daiwa BG that I would use for Freshwater and could pair it with that if it’s more ideal. Are there restricted areas for Surf Fishing or is any spot on the shore okay, so long as there aren’t a lot of people present? No targeted species come to mind, as I would just catch and release. Is there any multi species setup recommendations for this? Thanks for any info.
