2023.06.09 17:03 JRainers Large indie retailer being provided just 33% of their requested Leviathan stock a day ahead of preorders

The following was shared by The Outpost, a large Indie LGS in Sheffield, UK. Via their email list earlier today:
Leviathan Statement. We are regretfully finding ourselves in a far too familiar situation today. After months of being told that all the stock issues we were having on Games Workshop new releases were in aid of 10th Edition being a faultless launch with plenty of stock. This has turned out to have been in vain.
All the information and promises of available stock until late last night indicated stock levels would be fine and we would get everything we ordered. There was no indication that there would be any stock shortages, we were even encouraged to up our numbers as recently as Tuesday. Here is the unadulterated and transparent series of events and the outcomes of such.
We finalised our request for enough units last night to cover 100% of interest list demand and have enough for general sale at 10am on Saturday for pre orders. At no point during these discussions was any indication made that there was likely to be stock shortages. As you can observe for yourselves through Games Workshop’s marketing, incredibly large volumes of stock were purported to have been made.
This morning Games Workshop emailed to tell us we would be receiving exactly 33.33% of what we asked for and this is less than 25% of the numbers given to us which would be considered “no problem”. Up until this point, the only indication of any delays would be that over a certain volume, deliveries of stock to us, may need to be split across multiple days. Additionally, as of our latest conversation with Games Workshop, there are no current plans to provide additional stock to retailers. We have spoken to several independent retailers, and they are all in the same position to a greater or lesser extent.
We honestly have no words. We apologise that we will not be able to fulfil our promise to you all being able to get the stock you requested. This is the outcome as it stands.
Anyone who pre-ordered The Colour Forge Objective Marker Set, will be allocated their box.
Secondly, we will be allocating one copy per person to local collection orders. (Due to the work involved, we will be unable to process alterations to the interest list).
Once these have been allocated, we will randomly allocate the rest of the copies on a one per person basis to other people on the interest list.
Please note that we will be hard capping all interest list expressions to one copy.
We have chosen to take this approach, as first and foremost we believe it is our duty to support the local community above all else. Once the stock we have had confirmed has been allocated, we will keep everyone remaining on the interest list on there for if Games Workshop change their stance on made to order (which we sincerely hope they will do), at which point we will order any remaining units required to cover the initial demand.
Our staff have given up their company benefit of getting pre order items, as they have many times of late so we can get more stock into the hands of our valued customers.
We again apologise for any inconvenience and upset caused. We have been working tirelessly to make this release the best it possibly could be, and we have found ourselves let down again by our suppliers. We will be handling all customer enquiries as quickly and efficiently as possible but please, if you are displeased at the current situation direct your anguish towards those responsible.
As always, we appreciate you all more than we can ever express, and we will continue to strive to ensure your hobby can be supported and nurtured by The Outpost. Serving you all brings us a great deal of joy, and a sense of community satisfaction and we are deeply wounded every time we cannot live up to the high standards, we set ourselves. We will continue to provide our five-star service and stand by our strong beliefs.
On another note, this weekend’s new releases for GW haven’t arrived either and will therefore not be shipping until Monday at the earliest... Par for the Course, it seems.
Thank you. Chris, Dan, and the Team.

2023.06.09 16:49 jasondfw Finally have crow visitors, but need help getting them to the backyard

TL;DR: I've attracted crows, but I need to lure them to the backyard instead of the front.
I've been working on getting crow visitors for about 2 months now. I slowly started adding feeders and baths to my backyard so I can watch right out my home office window. You can see my backyard setup below. Shepherd's hook with a tube feeder and platform feeder, window mounted feeder, and 2 bird baths. There's also a giant catalpa tree to the right. I replace the bird bath water every 1-2 days and have been testing out different waste free seed/nut/fruit mixes. I started out with just peanuts in the shell, and I still put them in the platform feeder or on the ground sometimes.
As you can see, the yard is wide but not very deep, so I know they're probably cautious about such an enclosed ground area.
So I currently get several other birds (grackles, doves, blue jays, cardinals, finches, starlings, and more), squirrels, and rabbits. I enjoy those, but I want the crows.
I found the local crows a few weeks ago and have been walking by them every few days tossing peanuts as I go. On Monday, we heard them outside so I ran out into my front yard and saw them on top of a house nearby. I started tossing peanuts into the yard and then went inside. Shortly after he swooped down and started eating them. SCORE! He brought a few friends and we had 4 crows visit on Monday. They've actually visited every day this week, so I'm finally on their food route!
But there are a few problems... First off, as luck would have it, a bunny dropped a couple kits in a nest in our front flower garden on Monday. So she's been guarding our front yard and charging anything that gets near, including the crows.
Second problem... My new friends like to visit at around 6-6:30am. I get up for work around that time, so I don't mind it, I enjoy waking up to cawing outside before my alarm goes off. But the crows sit on the neighbor's house across the street when they caw. I don't want to upset the neighbors with my new friends. I'm really going to look like an asshole if they see me tossing peanuts to the crows that are waking them up every morning. They also sometimes sit on the houses behind me that can see into the backyard, but I haven't been able to get them to visit these feeders.
So, how do I lure my new friends into the backyard? I've tried leaving a trail of peanuts along the side of the house with the gate open leading into the back. I've also tried a couple of bowls of peanuts. The grackles and squirrels eat this up, the crows don't. I also tried lining the top of the fence with peanuts. I did that this morning while one of the crows was on top of the house behind me, but again the squirrels and grackles ate them all, the crows did not.
Sorry for the long post, but I'm very close to cementing the murder I've been seeking for the past couple of months and just need a little help.
EDIT: I realize that I should have included a picture of my new friends! Here they are on Tuesday, second day visiting. They don't immediately fly out of the yard if I go out front, so they aren't too scared of me. You can see mama bunny staring daggers at them from across the street because her babies are in those bricks right between them.

2023.06.09 16:24 DaraDollina69 Coming out when people start noticing when you don't pass

It was my plan to start coming out when people started noticing the effects of hrt. Here we are approaching 1.5 of hrt.
My child's mother(havent been together for over 6 years) asked me to meet with her privately to talk about their behavior at school about a month and a half ago. The first question she asked me was "is there anything going on with you?" I felt cornered but also relieved? She felt it was time I came out to our child as well because they were asking her gendered questions every day, can boys do this can girls do that etc. I thought it was time too.
I had started dating this wonderful enby around this time that I met on tinder. My profile was without a face pic and a bio saying I'm trans looking for my confidence. Meaning I need help in my sense of fashion and makeup, I'm also bi/pan. In hindsight I realize this was a very selfish approach. Things seemed to be going well between us besides the fact we are both bottoms, I was willing to be switch if they were. I hardly saw a glimpse of their switch side they said they wanted to explore more.
Ffw to the weekend I come out to my child, I read She's My Dad to them, great book for this btw. I could hardly choke back the tears after the first page. They seem a little resistant after I explained everything, I let them know I'll love them the same and I'll always be their dad. They can't keep a secret very well so I decided to send a group text to my parent amd siblings. The only ones didn't know yet were my two older brothers. I included my parents and younger sister for an opportunity to show their support. I heard back from nobody and that hurt. I felt alone and cried a lot that night.
While this was happening the person I was dating was falling into a bpd episode. I don't let the people I'm dating into my child's life for the fear they'll only be in my life temporarily. So once kiddo was picked up by their mom we played some mariocart and smashbros online past my bedtime for it was a work night. Everything seemed well between us as we signed off. I woke up to a text saying how she isn't ready to date when they aren't financially or mentally stable and how they were suicidal the day prior.
My boss and hr already knew I was trans. I let kiddo pick out my nail polish color. I usually just do black but they picked an organgish pink. So that morning at work I was feeling it, put up my hair all cute, cropped my oversized work tee revealing my jeggings and b cups, and emailed hr stating I started presenting at work. I still had to use the men's room the rest of the week. My Manger tried deadnaming me the Thursday before the email went out to the entire factory arguing its not official yet. My supervisor was on vacation and I was in charge of my line. I kind of blew up on him. My workplace has a zero tolerance policy.
The Tuesday the email was supposed to be sent out I was super nervous. When I signed into my computer my sign in info and email was still my deadname and the email hadn't been sent out yet. It wouldn't be sent out until I had already left for the day. I felt like I wasn't being taken seriously and that I was fucking everything up. Imposter syndrome started to set in and all of the things that didn't give me dysphoria became the focus of my attention. I felt ugly and disgusting. My stress was through the roof.
I think I'm way behind in my transition and that I've come out too soon. I need to speed run voice training and my gait. My family still deadnames me so I feel the need to prove I'm a woman to them even at home. I can't just leave because I wouldn't be able to have joint custody of my kid without them. I just started therapy Tuesday as well so I'm hoping I cam get a referral for ffs and an orchi asap. I wish I started that sooner too
I guess this is a bit of a vent and I'm sharing so others don't make the same mistakes I did. I feel like I shot myself in the foot. I have the day off to kind of process everything, might go disc golfing later.

2023.06.09 16:22 autotldr Russia shelling Ukraine's flooded Kherson region after Kakhovka dam destroyed makes rescue work perilous

This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 72%. (I'm a bot)
The chaos continued in southern Ukraine Friday as security forces, emergency workers and regular citizens risked life and limb to evacuate people from a vast area flooded by the destruction of a crucial dam in Russian held territory.
Ukraine accused Russia of blowing up the Nova Kakhovka hydro-power plant and dam "From inside" early Tuesday morning, unleashing a torrent of water from the massive reservoir it held back onto the surrounding Kherson region.
The city of Kherson is less than 50 miles downstream from the broken dam.
The dam was also a key road across the Dnipro river, which in much of southern Ukraine serves as a geographic barrier between Ukrainian-held ground to the west, and Russian-held ground to the east.
By flooding a wide stretch along the southern portion of the river, the border between the two sides has been enlarged by several times, which will complicate any concerted bid by Ukrainian troops to push Russia back in the parts of the Kherson region it still occupies.
In the city of Kherson, which Ukraine reclaimed from Russian forces last year, and the flooded areas around it, rescue efforts in the disaster zone have been severely hampered by the fact that it is also an active war zone.

2023.06.09 16:07 sassy_mannequin What's causing my sore throat?

36 female, non-smoker, 5'8" 200lbs TL;DR: Diagnosed bacterial bronchitis on May 23 (cold-like symptoms started on May 16), finished prescribed doxycycline and 5-day prednisone. Sore throat came back on June 5/6, worsened on June 7 – has not improved but also hasn't gotten worse. ––– I went to urgent care back on May 23 after having cold symptoms that settled into my chest and worsened after day 5/6. They gave me a 5-day run of steroids, an antibiotic, and a couple of cough medicines for bacterial bronchitis.
I finished my antibiotics mid-week last week and was greatly improved. I expected to have a slight cough for a few weeks but even that has improved quite a bit in the last week and a half. One nagging symptom I've had since the beginning was a sore spot in my throat in a specific spot and only on one side. It felt like it was a little past my left tonsil but beyond the typical area where your nose drains. It did improve but sort of came back earlier this week and still persists. That sore throat spot spread down a bit overnight Tuesday into Wednesday and now my throat feels sore and raw at about voicebox level. My voice is not hoarse anymore – maybe just a little at night and early morning. I'm going into day 3 with that with no other symptoms.
Will this resolve on its own? I only ask because my bronchitis was bacterial and I worry the antibiotics didn't fully knock it down. I have no other symptoms other than the residual minor coughing and some sinus drainage (my throat does not hurt in the typical post-nasal drip area but can it still be the cause?) Is it just irritated from throat clearing? That seems unlikely as my throat-clearing hasn't been anything egregious to warrant such a raw feeling. Ibuprofen helps the pain but not entirely.
My only other thought is air quality. I'm in the Midwest US and while it hasn't been as bad as the NE, our air quality has been poor these last few days and I wonder if still having a slight nagging cough and recovering from bronchitis has put me in a more sensitive group.
I'm basically just trying to decide if a trip to urgent care is warranted or if it'll resolve over the weekend. I get married on Tuesday and want to figure this out before then!

2023.06.09 15:57 No_Significance_9562 Wrote a letter to my pathological lying drug addicted Ex-Boyfriend today. I don't think I'll ever send it but it felt good to write!

Dear (Ex),
I don’t know how we got here. I avoid you every morning, and I hate the thought of seeing your face because it hurts too much. I’m angry at you. So angry. You know me better than anyone else on this planet, so you know how angry I get.
I think that’s why I’m so bothered by the way everything turned out. Because I gave you everything, I shared every insecurity, every vulnerability, every fear, every trauma, and every dark thought. There were things I hid from you too, but by the end, I don’t think there was anything I ever kept from you. Nobody on Earth has ever seen me as clearly and openly as you have. But I know nothing about you. I wish I could say I knew some things about you, but the truth is, I have begun to doubt every single thing you have ever told me.
You lied to me. Consistently, continuously, and whatever other c word could complete my futile attempt at some cheap alliteration to lighten this letter. I’m sorry that you felt you had to lie to me or felt you couldn’t be your most authentic self around me. Now that I’ve begun to see the truth, I know the lies began from the very beginning of our relationship. We were destined to fail from that beautiful evening in September. There was no other end to the journey we took. Call me melodramatic, but our entire relationship was founded on a fragile bedrock of lies, gaslighting, and manipulation.
As I leave what we had behind, I can see some dangerous patterns that you put me through and I hate myself for not being kinder to myself, for not being brave, and for ignoring my instinct. Every time I caught you in a lie, you “trickle truthed” me and told me what you thought you could still get away with. You would feel ashamed, but also feel hurt, and then I would at some point apologise for making you feel that way. My therapist told me I was stuck in a cycle of abuse, but I want to clarify that I don’t think you were abusive and I don’t think it was intentional. What I do think is you were inconsiderate, and you put your pride before my feelings.
I understand you were ashamed about a lot of things, and embarrassed. I really do understand that. But you should have known that the lies and the manipulation to hide the truth would inevitably hurt me. You should have known they would destroy me. And they did. They really did (Ex). I was sent home from work on the Tuesday after our break up cause I couldn’t stop crying. I have been reliving the past eight years over and over again and wondering why I allowed myself to be lied to so often. Why I forced myself to believe you would change. Why I naively told myself that things would be different this time.
“This time”
“Next Week”
“I just need some time”
Words and phrases that we lived by. Words and phrases that you used to keep me around, to keep me desperately clinging to a fiction you created. How I wish my 22-year old self had been braver, how I wish my 25 year-old self could have seen why you weren’t moving to (City). Why you were so conflicted about leaving a job that I honestly didn’t think meant much to you. I don’t think I knew all the pieces then like I do now, but I knew something was off. Something didn’t add up, but I didn’t want to doubt you, cause I didn’t want to lose you. I was so afraid of losing what we had that I convinced myself that things were fine, that you were being honest.
Cause in case I didn’t make it clear with my words or with my actions,
I loved you so much.
I had the deepest most powerful love for you and I wish you could have seen it. I wish you could have seen the way I looked at you, and how much I admired you. I wish you knew how much I wanted nothing but the best for you, and how hard it was to ever see you in pain or discomfort. Even now, I hate to think about what you might be going through.
But I wish you could have told me everything. I wish you could have been your most authentic self around me, and I’ve spent the last few weeks wondering why you couldn’t. Was I not loving enough? Did I not tell you how much I loved you enough? Did I not show it? Did I seem judgemental? Was I intimidating? I know I know, I’m flattering myself.
But I wish you had been honest, not even from the get-go, but at some point. We could have worked on so many things together. I really meant it when I said together we set the world on fire. But just cause I mean something, doesn’t mean it’s true I guess.
(Ex), I don’t want any more answers. I don’t want any more truths. I have this deep fear that I’m only scratching the surface of your lies and I’m terrified about what else I might uncover in the future.
You were never going to change for me. It’s been eight years and I could write a list of the promises that were made early on. I’m not mad at you for that by the way, I just wish I had been able to accept it earlier.
But this is the part where I thank you and wish you the best.
We had such an incredible relationship despite what I wrote above. We didn’t have full honesty, it's clear, but we had something special. We had our own language, our inside jokes, our incredible dynamic. People envied what we had, and truthfully I loved making the world jealous of our love. I am so incredibly grateful for what you gave me.
I’ve grown so much from the last eight years, and I have zero regrets about what we had and what we did together. I don’t regret those nights on the couch, those trips to Europe and Mexico, and those morning coffees together. I loved loving you, and I loved being loved.
I hope you grew from it too. And (Ex), I hope someday you find someone that you can be your most authentic self with. Someone who you feel comfortable opening up to about your insecurities, the way I did with you. I believe you loved me too, I have begun to doubt that since all the lies surfaced, because how could someone who loves me hurt me so badly? But I know I’ve hurt you too though it was never my intention.
I don’t want you to ever respond to this letter. I would love to hear that you did love me, but I’m not ready.
I’m not ready for a lot of things. I’m not ready for love again, but I hope I can find what we had again with someone else. I can’t wait to fall in love all over again and I hope you can love again as well.
I want to let you know that as we approach this next chapter of our lives, I will always be rooting for you. I tried to stop loving you, but it’s not easy. I’ll keep loving you from afar I guess, and maybe someday we can catch up and see how well we’re each doing apart.
Again, I’m not ready but I will be. Also, I’m not okay, but I will be.
We’ll both be okay.
Loving you from afar,
(Hurt Boyfriend)

2023.06.09 15:52 tumblingtumblweed Am I upset for a perfectly rational reason or is it PMDD?

I hate questioning myself this much. My partner has been really busy recently, like we’ve maybe had time to go on one date in the last month and it was like a 45 minute dinner date and we went to go spend time with his parents/grandparents directly after. It was just his birthday and he wanted to spend it in a city that’s 45 minutes away from us. Totally fine but it took me 1.5 hours to get there and 1 hour to get back so I’m completely burnt out in driving rn. We had a conversation on Tuesday where he said “I miss you let’s hang soon” to which I said “let’s hangout on Friday night I think we’re both finally free!” And he said he’d love to. This morning I say to him “let’s hangout tonight” and he responds with “you’re gonna have to work for it Im going to (town that’s 45 minutes away) to train” so I guess I’m not hanging out with my bf tonight.
I feel so sad about it. I feel like he doesn’t care to spend time with me and he’s too busy to carve out any time for me, even when we agree on something. I’m literally so starved for one on one time with my partner and I keep telling him that but he keeps doing stuff like this. I can’t tell if I’m just being needy or if this is a legit problem :(

2023.06.09 14:44 DontGetNEBigIdeas Community Poll: Should /XFiles go private in demonstration against Reddit’s plan to charge for API access?

We know many subs are choosing to go private on June 12th for 48 hours, but we wanted to offer this to you, the members, to weigh in.
As you probably know, Reddit is planning to start charging for developer access to their API. As of now, they are not including a charge for any ADA uses of their API, but that could change.
Many 3rd party developers have stated that the costs are so prohibitively high that they will have to shutdown services.
There’s more to this, and you can find that information outside of this post (and probably in a more accurate, and cohesive manner). So, please do take time to research this a bit further.
Let us know what the community would like to do. If we go “private,” it means that the sub would be inaccessible from 12am PST on Sunday night (Monday morning) through 12am PST Tuesday night (Wednesday morning).

2023.06.09 14:40 Comfortable_Cat_9936 This post is for the ones who haven't had much luck.... YET! Don't give up!

I started Wegovy on Feb 9th. I'm a 40yo female.
If you search my username in posts/comments on this group, you will notice that over the time I've been on Wegovy I haven't had the greatest luck. And to be honest, I was about to give up. Terrible side effects, ruining plans and time with my family because i was too sick and or fatigued to do anything. Hovering around the same 1-2 lbs for 2+ months... it was MADDENING!
At my heaviest since starting Wegovy I was at 228 when I had horrible constipation (side effect of the Wegovy mixed with Zofran from my nausea) that lasted over a week... However, I finally started on the 2.4 dose this past Tuesday and since then I've lost 2 lbs. I have not been able to get lower than 214lbs since beginning my journey.
As of this morning, I'm at 212!!! I've lost a total of 16 lbs!!! I know this weight loss is EXTREMELY slow (avg 4lbs/month) compared to many of you in this group... But I cannot tell you how excited I am that I finally broke through my plateau.
I also attached my measurements from 5-2-23 and then again on 5-24-23. During this 3 week period, I was literally hovering around 214-217lbs but I managed to lose a total of 13 inches in those 3 weeks, including 4 inches from just my waist! If you aren't measuring yourself, please start doing it. When people say that you could be losing inches but your weight may stay the same, it's not to make you feel better, it's the TRUTH! I was one of those people thinking it wouldn't matter, but it seriously did and it was a HUGE NSV for me.
I eat around 1100-1600 calories a day and I feel satisfied. Most days I eat clean/healthy but I still have a drink and/or a sweet now and then. I do strength training with body weight and 3/5/8lb dumbbells and I also use the total gym with the help of a virtual personal trainer. I drink 80-100oz of water a day and focus on getting ~100g of protein each day. I don't really limit any foods.
I just had to come on here and give those who may be lurking and feeling disappointed to not give up hope. It has been a longgggg and freaking TOUGH journey for me... I am just so happy I didn't give up. I kept exercising and holding myself accountable. There's been tears and tears and more tears. My PCP actually cried with me at my last appointment before I got on the 2.4 because I'm her only patient that is having this much of an issue losing weight. I sent her an email yesterday telling her I finally broke through my plateau and she was just as elated as me!
The weight on the scale is just a number... and we all seem to hyper fixate on it so much. It doesn't help that our PAs through our insurance make us fixate on that number.... However I digress. The number on that scale does NOT define you. It does NOT get imprinted on your forehead for everyone to see. What matters the most is how you are feeling, how your clothes are fitting, what your measurements are and how much energy you have. Try to put some of your focus on those things instead of the # on the scale and I promise you when you least expect it, that number WILL go down. I had to stop putting so much stress on myself about that damn number. It doesn't MATTER!
This medication has really changed my outlook on life and even though it's been a rollercoaster of a ride, I have it to thank for getting me to have healthier habits. I freaking despised working out, and now I actually look forward to it. I'm still not a fan of cardio and you'll never catch me running unless I'm being chased, but strength training really works for me.
I'm getting married in July of 2024 and this will be my first marriage. I started this journey to lose weight, but also so I could feel beautiful on my wedding day. After the past few weeks, I now actually believe that will happen.
Wherever you are in your journey, please don't give up. It WILL eventually work even if it's not working right this moment. ❤️

2023.06.09 14:33 ribbonofsunshine Day three of no poop

My ten week old (ten weeks tomorrow) EBF son hasn’t pooped since Tuesday afternoon. It’s friday morning. He is peeing normally, still gassy as ever. He used to poop three times a day. He used to eat well but now fights me on the boob, pulling away and crying, even though he’s hungry. Some feeds are fine and he chugs. I think it’s the pressure on his tummy maybe?
At what point should I be concerned? I’ve read that some kids just don’t go for a few days. That his digestive system is maturing and absorbing more nutrients so there’s less waste…

2023.06.09 14:31 CalmGains Morning Briefing 🌞 June 9th 2023

Mornin' - Last post. The stock market has been relatively quiet this week, with the S&P 500, Nasdaq Composite, and Dow Jones Industrial Average all trading within a narrow range. This comes after the debt ceiling was raised and no major economic data was released this week. Former President Donald Trump has been indicted on seven federal criminal counts related to classified documents he kept at his Mar-a-Lago home. He will appear in court on Tuesday. This is the second criminal indictment for Trump, who has maintained his innocence in both cases. General Motors has partnered with Tesla to allow GM owners to use Tesla's Supercharger network. This is similar to a partnership that Tesla recently struck with Ford. The partnerships are a step towards a unified charging standard for electric vehicles in the United States. The American consumer is still spending, which has helped to offset some of the economic headwinds. However, there are still concerns about a recession. JPMorgan's global market strategist, Marko Kolanovic, believes that the U.S. and global economies are still on solid ground and that fears of a recession are overblown.
I don't post these types of briefings daily, but I could? If you guys want more posts like this on the daily, be sure to upvote and follow me. It helps me gauge interest.
MU - Micron came down to test support around $64 and jumped off this level yesterday. This $64 level acted as significant resistance over the past year and now should act as support for the stock.
VET - This nat gas stock is coming up to test resistance around $12.20 which is where shares topped out in May. The $12.20 resistance level coincides with the stock 50 daily MA which should provide additional resistance.
BA - Boeing is coming up to test resistance around $219 which is where shares had topped out in February and April. The stock is also nearly overbought according to RSI which should help push shares lower.
BIDU - Double inside bar setup on the daily time frame. A break below 133.10, I'd look for 132.53 as the first target, next targets I'd have is 132, 131, 130.52, and under 130.25.

2023.06.09 14:28 Quiet-Experience-113 AITA For Leaving Work Early Due To My Mental Health?

I (26F) work part time at a grocery store. My job consists of printing tags and store signs, making sure items are properly tagged after resets, replacing tags and store signs, etc. My section is only general items and liquor but I also tag grocery items if need be. This happened towards the end of April between me and my store director (who I'll call Mike).
At the end of every month, store signs for almost every general item and liquor have to be replaced along with tags. Store signs take priority regardless of section, then tags. Excluding grocery, I had around 50-70 store signs and 5,000-7,000 tags (give or take). Tags came in on Tuesday and were supposed to be put up by the end of Wednesday, but since I was only part time I could only complete what I could.
I spent my Tuesday shift separating tags and didn't have time to place any of them (separating tags is not necessary but it saves time and makes the job a lot easier). Wednesday morning, I was busy replacing signs when Mike kept bothering me. We agreed that morning I would do store signs before working on tags, but he seemed adamant that tags took priority. He bothered me over tags about 3-4 times even while I was taking a break (I was entitled to a 15 minute break).
Mike asked me what I was doing, then said I was "making him nervous" for not working on tags right away. At that point I was getting a headache from the stress but it upgraded to a migraine. I was almost crying as well and could not speak. I spent 10 minutes trying to calm myself but it didn't work, so I texted Mike that I was leaving early and left.
A month after I explained it to my store manager and he said I should've been written up (this was a week before he started working at our store so he had no idea this happened). I am also guilty for not working on tags. Our liquor manager named Rachel was also helping me with tags so I also didn't feel right by leaving her. I have since apologized to Rachel and while she understands why I left I still don't know if I did the right thing.

2023.06.09 14:25 CarbonatedMoolk My dad just died

Im 18 and he was 69. He died in his sleep Wednesday night. I found out last night during my final exams. I’m devastated. I had hoped to have more years with him. I can’t stop crying and there’s this sick emptiness in his stomach. I’m going over to his place to clean some stuff with my mom , uncle and my moms friend.
He made me a bag and he was repairing it at the time. I was going to visit him today. I’m so happy I wasn’t the one who found him. I’m so sad I miss him already I keep texting his number. I hope he knew I loved him and I miss him so much already. It’s so unreal I can’t believe he’s dead. I just wanted a few more years with my daddy but he’s gone. I’m happy he got to go to my graduation and 18th birthday before he died. He died. It feels so weird saying that. He’s dead. I’m never going to speak with him again. Or show him my exam results. We had planned to go on holidays this summer to visit my half siblings in Canada go camping etc I’m so sad I was so looking forward to spending that time with him. Now my half siblings are coming here to help arrange the funeral or assess whatever. I’ve set his face as my wallpaper and I keep texting him. At least when my grandmother died I knew she was sick.
I knew she was going to die but this was so sudden. He was found. The police called. My mom told me. The police came. They say he was in bed with the duvet over him so hopefully that means his death was peaceful. I hope he died without even knowing it. He had heart attacks before even during my infancy he was recovering from a massive heart attack. He smoked like a train but he was trying to cut down. His breathing was tough and had a cough he went for a chest scan. Maybe if the results came back sooner he’d still be alive. My daddy would be here. Maybe if I visited him on Wednesday I could’ve seen something and saved him.
My last message to me was telling me he was confident I’ll do well with a minion clapping gif.
I’m so devastated. I’ll never see my daddy again I don’t know what to do. I miss my daddy so much already. He had a son who died as an infant and a brother who died of an overdose. I just hope he’s with them and one day I can be too. I can’t believe this has happened. Daddy why didn’t you wait for me to see you one last time. I never got to say goodbye or I love you properly. Last time I saw him we had a mini fight but we made up. The morning I left his apartment I sat in his lap for a while and hugged him. I don’t know the last time I told him I loved him but I hope he knew I did very much.

2023.06.09 14:19 w1oumfsom2mm Strange physical and mental feeling after starting blood pressure medication

I (30f) started 12.5 MG Hydrochlorothiazide for high BP about 1 week ago. This has caused a slight change in my morning BP (taken at 0600) but 0 change in my evening BP (taken at 2000). This morning I was at 111/89, yesterday morning 106/87. But last night was 144/101. I take the pill around 9 am. I have accompanied it with cutting my sodium intake and have only had about 700-900 MG of salt a day for the past 3 weeks.
On Tuesday and Thursday of this week, both times in thr afternoon, I began experiencing a strange sensation in my head. It feels similar to sinus pressure, but not where I would normally experience sinus pressure. I get a sinus infection about every other year so I'm fairly well acquainted with where sinus pressure should be. This feeling usually starts with dizziness or disorientation. After it starts, I almost feel like I've had too much to drink. Not that I'm drunk, but maybe a bit tipsy and wouldn't be comfortable driving. The world is just off even though in reality I'm completely sober. Finally, I almost feel mentally slower in these moments. I feel like I'm having to force myself to focus on tasks or understanding others. This is troublesome because in my career misunderstanding someone can be very dangerous very quickly.
I am currently experiencing this for the second time. It started yesterday (Thursday) around 1500. I woke up today at 0600 with what felt like a dull head ache and gradually turned into what I've described. This is similar to what occurred Tuesday: symptoms carried over into the next day. The symptoms did stop midmorning on Wednesday so I'm hoping they do the same today.
Is this a normal side effect of Hydrochlorothiazide? Worth reporting to my physician before my next appointment? We currently have a followup scheduled for July 5th. My SO thinks this may be a result of drastically cutting salt, calories, and carbs, or thst I am lacking something in my diet. Any suggestions appreciated. Thank you.

2023.06.09 14:10 Mimsy15 Need some good vibes

Hi all. I’ve been active on here since the beginning and am currently 37+1 with my first, who is perfectly happy and healthy in my belly ♥️ for that I am so grateful. I am also so grateful for my wonderful hubby who has been my rock through all of this. I haven’t felt alone for one second.
Unfortunately, I have had a pretty rough pregnancy only in terms of joint pain. At first (week 20) it was intense pain in my right foot and ankle but I was able to hobble around. Now, starting 3 weeks ago, it’s debilitating right knee pain. I’ve been through the gambit this week. I went to my OB on Tuesday with a walker and he was horrified and told me to go straight to an orthopedist. I did and they attempted an ultrasound guided aspiration of fluid in my knee but found no fluid (after digging around for a while in my knee with the needle). The doctor then wrote me a script to have the same procedure done at another facility.
The next day I went to my GP who said my joint was hot and I could have an infection so she prescribed me Augmentin and got me set up with another orthopedist the next day. I went yesterday and he insists there’s no fluid… just swelling. Said don’t go for the second aspiration it’s not going to do anything and going to be torture but wrote me a script for an MRI bc he suspects maybe an ACL/MCL injury despite all this starting randomly one morning when I woke up.
I’m using the brace the doctor prescribed.
I’m just in so much pain and frustrated. Anyone have any experience with an MRI in their third trimester? How do you handle laying down flat?
How am I going to go through labor with a walker and not being able to bend my right leg? I can’t even get on my bouncy ball. Little by little all my birth plans are getting ripped away from me and I’m so sad. Prenatal yoga has been a big part of my preparation and I obviously can’t do that anymore or do it during labor. I know I shouldn’t be so “woe is me” but I really just feel so sad in addition to this excruciating pain. I can’t put any weight on my right leg and I’m constantly catching myself from falling over.
Sorry for the lengthy rant. Just sad.

2023.06.09 14:04 ColBlackhawk WWI Story (PART 1) Journey to the Frontline

My great-grandfather, Alexander Houck Mosier, served in WWI with the 79th Division during the Meuse-Argonne Offensive, which took place from September 26, 1918, to November 11th, 1918. This is his story.
I have in my possession the transcription of a diary he wrote while deployed. A major help in writing this story is the book History of the Seventy-Ninth Division A.E.F. during the World War: 1917-1919, published in 1922. The book was extremely helpful, as Alexander had trouble spelling the French names. Reading along helped me to narrow down the towns he traveled through. I also have created a google map (https://www.google.com/maps/d/edit?mid=1Q49-SJTkOTM5jPSWg-qH7cAeFjOtm68&usp=drive_link) , which plots where I think he was. Especially in later parts where his division is in combat, the pins mark the general area. The map covers his whole diary, so minor spoilers for where he traveled.
In this story, I have picked specific entries from his diary, marked in bold, to tell the story, with my comments/ summary along with quotes from the book, in italics. There are entries for each day, but some are removed to shorten the length of the story.
Alexander Houck Mosier was born on May 25, 1894, in Maryland. When he was drafted, he was a laborer in a flour mill with an 8th grade education. He was drafted at the age of 23 and was sent to Camp Meade in 1917 as part of the 79th Division, 313th Infantry, Company D.
Major General Joseph A. Kuhn oversaw the division, with Colonel Claude B. Sweezey commanding the 313th infantry. The men of the 79th division were drawn from Pennsylvania, Maryland, and the District of Columbia. A good example of the demographic makeup of the division is given in the form of the 310th Field Artillery: “In this one regiment there were fifteen nationalities, American, Russian, Italian, Polish, Austrian, Jewish, Swiss, English, Lithuanian, Greek, Bohemian, French, Irish, Romanian, and even German. There were four different religious beliefs, Protestant, Catholic, Hebrew and Greek Catholic, while twenty-five men of the regiment asserted they had no religious adherence. As to educational attainments, but fifty men in the regiment had ever attended college, while 114 had no education of any sort. Others had been to elementary, grammar and high schools.”
By September 30th, all the men had arrived at Camp Meade and were ready for training. The training lasted from October 1st, 1917, to July 5th, 1918. On July 5th, the division departed for Hoboken.
Saturday, 6 July: Reached Jersey City about 4 AM. Taken ferry across to Hoboken, on ferry boat. Loan aboard U.S.S. Leviathan. Went on Guard at 6 PM.
U.S.S. Leviathan was formerly the German Liner Vaterland, seized along with the entire U.S. branch of the Hamburg American Line when war was declared. The ship was originally designed to carry 4,500 passengers but by the time Alexander boarded, it had been upgraded to 14,000.
Monday, 15 July – Arrived at Brest about 2:30 PM. Stayed aboard ship all night. Up all night, band playing.
Tuesday, 16 July- Left boat and landed at Brest, walking 6 miles. Arrived at rest camp about 12 AM. Weather was cloudy and rainy. Went in a field of weed. Work hard to get tent up in rain.
Thursday, 18 July- Left camp about 2 AM. Walked 6 miles. Boarded cars 42 men to a car. Passed through Lerody, Landerneaux. Bremmes a very nice town. Munitions Camp located.
An excerpt on what the box cars were like: “Box cars are usually provided for the accommodation of the troops. They hold from 3'-2 to 40 men. Sometimes seats are provided. Straw will be provided whenever practicable to make the men as comfortable as possible when traveling in cold weather. Space at each end of the car should be left clear for rifles, rations and accoutrements; the rifles being secured by an improvised rack made with screw rings and a strap or sling.”
Friday, 19 July – Still traveling. Passed Angers, Tours, Vierson (Vierzon) large R.R. Centre. People of better classed. Nice homes.
Saturday, 20 July – Still on board train without much comfort eating or sleeping. Passed Dijon. Mostly wheat and potatoes grown. Seen droves of cattle 1500. Several camps, some been overseas 8 months.
Sunday, 21 July- Arrived about 6 AM. After being on train about 80 hours, walked 4 miles and secured quarters. 3rd floor 18 men in 1 room very good after being on train. Town named Blissey sa Pierre. Rained all day.
Thursday, 25 July- Hiked 2 hours with heavy packs and then drilled till noon. Packed up and left. Passed through Chatillon SuSeine. Reached Longeaux (Longeau) about 1 o’clock and stayed till morning.
Friday, 26 July- Left Longeaux (Longeau) about 11 AM. Traveled in trucks about 2 PM. Billeted again not very good. Town prices very high. Champlittle (Champlitte) name of town.
Champlitte was the site of the Tenth Training Area, where the division was to spend all of August in intensive combat training. This area had not been touched by the war. A description of the area: “It was picturesque from one end of the training area to the other, with the peasants always ready to extend a hearty greeting. Men of the Ammunition Train tell of a large sign displayed on the town hall, or hotel de ville of one of the places they entered, bearing the inscription, “Welcome to our American Friends,” and of the formal address of welcome delivered by the town’s patriarch, while the children and girls threw flowers to the men standing in the ranks. There was, however, little to do in the area by way of recreation. At the end of a hard day’s work the sole amusements would be a stroll through quaint village streets, a halting conversation with a native, or a glass of light wine sipped in a sidewalk cafe. Regulations forbidding the sale of strong liquors were enforced by the military authorities and were well observed on the part of the French population.”
From July 26 to September 8th, Alexander’s entries are sometimes short. The following is a selection of that time.
Saturday – 3 August – Short drill and lecture of care of feet. Taking automatic rifle apart with eyes tied shut with a handkerchief. Taking all apart with eyes tight shut, putting together the same way. Inspected by Lt. Townsend. Only 1 pin missed but would not stop from shooting.
Thursday – 8 August- Shooting on rifle range with automatic rifle. Made a good score. 23 five shots.
Thursday – 15 August – Drilled in morning and went to gas house and tested our gas mask. Took part of positions in front line trenches in honor of some Catholic festival. Nearly all people turned out.
Friday- 23 August- Went on 6 hour hike about 16 miles. In evening foot inspection. Tired and hungry and received pay. Also emergency rations. Still warm and cloudy and very cold at night.
Saturday – 31 August – Drilled and went through the manual of arms. Drilled with gas mask on for 1 hour. Pretty hard to get on in six seconds.
Monday – 2 September – General inspection of equipment. All taking a bath. One man drowned name Raspa. I ran for a pole up to town about 500 yards.
DROWNED? Taking a bath? What an awful way to go.
Sunday – 8 September – Left Campsite. Walked 6 Miles to Oyrios. (Oyreires) No rest men drop out about 11 AM. Boarded train with 2 days of rations at 5:45 PM. 40 men to a car, passed backed to Champlatde Maatz Chaumorunt (no idea).
Monday, 9 September – Passed Revigny Barekduc (Bar-le-duc?), reached Longville and unloaded. 9:30 AM went to town and stayed up in a hay loft.
Tuesday, 10 September – Rainy, no drill. More troops passing, auto trucks passing through, No retreat.
Thursday, 12 September – Cloudy and rainy. Inspection of everything, gun and clothes. Detail unloading cars, hay, and goats.
This story will continue in 3 days with PART 2: Preparing to Attack

2023.06.09 13:59 AMDKilla M32 F29 My wife of 6 1/2 years abandoned me when I needed her the most

I'm blind in one eye and severely sight impaired in the other courtesy of yet another hemmorage inside my eye on Tuesday. Im also diabetic and require insulin injections on a daily basis. My wife comes home after work on Wednesday and tells me she's been having thoughts about leaving. She then heads back out the door to go to the cinema that we had booked together (but now I couldn't go because of the bleeding). She messaged me to say no matter what happens, she'll always be my carer.
She comes home after and doesn't say anything. I try and comfort her and tell her that she needs to talk to someone about it. She says she'll call her mother in the morning. She calls her mother and they go out to lunch together. When she gets back, she doesn't say anything to me and just starts packing up things like her toothbrush and phone charger etc. Once she has everything together, she tells me she's off to her mother's for a few days. My vision is so bad at this point that I can't even make out her face. She leaves and I hear nothing from her for the rest of the day.
I get panicked phonecalls from my brother and sister because my wife sent them a message saying we had split up. My wife hadn't even bothered to tell me that we had split, she told me she just wanted a few days alone. When she called me today, she told me that she told then that we had split because it was easier to do that than explain.
She then went on to tell me she was staying at her mother's and wants a divorce. I later stumble across her wedding ring. She had left it on the arm of the sofa before she left for her mother's. Didn't bother handing it to me, or explaining what she was doing.
After a brief chat on Facebook messenger, she agreed that she might feel different in a week. But until then, I'm left hanging in limbo and forced to rely on my siblings to administer my insulin. Which is a pain for them as it has to be done around 9:30pm-10pm ish. One has a young child and the other lives just under an hour away. I can't even do things like washing dishes or clothes or even go shopping without ruining my vision even further.
Half of me wants to wait to see if she'll change her mind. The other half doesn't want her back. I literally and figuratively didn't see any of this coming. Do I wait to see if she changes her mind or do I start to move on?

2023.06.09 13:32 wardXn 35 day solo itinerary check across western Honshu, Shikoku, Osaka/Kyoto, Kanazawa and Tokyo

Hello, I would like to seek fellow redditors opinions, input and recommendation on how I could better finetune my itinerary better. There's only so much I can think of, and plan as an individual, but with everyone's input and comments I can further refine and enhance the travel experience before I set foot into Japan. Do forgive me in advance for the theorycrafting wall of text.
I know it may be difficult to review the itinerary, so to make the review easier I have broken the itinerary down into specific sub-groups e.g. Shikoku, Kinki etc. Specific questions that I have are bolded.
Thank you in advance for taking your time to provide your opinions!
Baseline information

Specific goals/objective:
  1. Experience Shikoku in autumn (specifically the views at Iya Valley) and in other prefectures (thus making nature sightseeing more of a priority this time round)
  2. Experience Kanazawa for anime stuff
  3. Experience the Shimanami Kaido in full (including any sightseeing spots in between the 6 island chains)
  4. Bonus - try as many sightseeing trains as possible.
  5. Bonus - if weather, time and schedule permits, try skiing as an option in Nagano.
  6. Bonus - stay in as many onsen ryokans as possible, without breaking the bank.

Locked-in prefectures [i.e. I will definitely go to those prefectures no matter what]:
  1. Shikoku (as per above objective)
  2. Hiroshima (because its on the opposite end of the Shimanami Kaido)
  3. Kanazawa (for anime related reason)
  4. Tokyo (that is my starting and end point so it has to be included by default)
All other prefectures are basically float i.e. I am open to consider dropping said itinerary for something else based on your suggestion that aligns with my preferences/interest. Most of the other locations I added are prefectures that are often next to each other, or well-connected (apart from the initial Tokyo Kagawa jump via Sunrise Seto/Shinkansen).

Wait-list prefectures (prefectures that I want to go, but I don’t think I can realistically fit in without dropping other locations):
  1. Snow skiing at Nagano (depending on how cooperative the weather is in early-ish December (would 2 days be sufficient?))
  2. Ehime, Kochi expansion [spend 1-3 more days]
  3. Izu Peninsula (~2 days, via Saphir Odoriko)
  4. Nagoya + lower Nagano (Kiso Valley) (~3 days)
  5. Ishikawa expansion [1 extra day at Kaga]
I am open to dropping a few days in Tokyo/Osaka etc to make that trade off [currently kept 3 days free for further development]. Alternatively, if the planning can be better optimized based on your inputs I might be able to do one of those without compromising on the base set. I would like to hear your opinion on what locations you would drop in the itinerary to make time for one of the above.

General planning philosophy:
  1. My itineary adopts a breadth approach (cover as much area as I can humanely possible without rushing/touch-and-go) as opposed to depth (i.e. spending much more time within Shikoku than what I allocated); though I would be open to considering more days at selected locations if you have strong recommendations. My thought is to experience how different autumn is at various parts of the country (if possible), and maybe winter too (to a certain degree).
  2. Due to the nature of my travel, I note that luggage logistics is a critical consideration when moving between prefectures; my thought is to park that luggage at the next hotel as quickly as possible so that I can free myself for sightseeing within the vicinity, or leave the luggage at the hotel after I check out until I am ready to travel to the next location. I will need to send (quite a fair bit of) emails to the hotels to confirm on this prior to booking.
  3. I will attempt to minimize transit time between prefectures to no more than 2~3 hours a day to avoid having excessively long transport days (except the initial Tokyo Kagawa jump).
  4. Because of the long trip, I will also need to factor a bit of downtime at night for administrative stuff (e.g. catching up a little bit on work, laundry etc).
Shikoku (~7 days)
Specific thoughts while planning:
  1. I will need to exploit Limited Express trains as much as possible to minimize downtime between the 4 prefectures. Fortunately, for the most part these train frequencies are almost hourly, thus missing one train isnt too deadly consequence-wise.
  2. The transfer between Kochi and Ehime [Matsuyama] is oddly quicker via express bus as opposed to trains (!)
  3. For Kochi, my opinion is that it is best explored on car instead of public transport [it’s a really wide prefecture]; I feel that 1 day may not do it justice, but it is probably adequate for exploring the city centre as a whole.
  4. There's a fair bit of uncertainties while planning this leg so I would deeply appreciate any advice you may have.
  5. This current iteration is unable to weave in the Shikoku Mannaka Sennen Monogatari sightseeing train [四国まんなか千年ものがたり] ; if you people think its something not to be missed do let me know and I will reshuffle my timetable as such.
Day 0: Tokyo Kagawa (Sunrise Seto) [Saturday, 11 Nov]
Day 1: Kagawa (Takamatsu) [Sunday, 12 Nov]
Day 2: Kagawa (Kotohira) Tokushima (Iya Valley) [Monday, 13 Nov]

Day 3: Tokushima (Iya Valley) [Tuesday, 14 Nov]
[Post-research note: I realized that there is NO public transport to Mount Tsurugi on a weekday. I will have to rent a taxi direct to Mount Tsurugi, make the 'climb', then thereafter take the taxi down to the other attractions. I am inclined to just go full hog on the private taxi and rent it (almost the whole day, probably 7~8 hours for 4300yen/hour) to save the trouble.
Otherwise, I will need to hike downhill which can be rather rough since its just a single lane road (looking at nearly 10++ km) so I think it wise not to penny pinch in the interest of both time and safety.]
Spend the day at Iya Valley.

Day 4: Tokushima (Iya Valley) Kochi (Kochi) [Wednesday, 15 Nov]

Day 5: Kochi (Kochi) Ehime (Imabari) [Thursday, 16 Nov]

Day 6: Ehime (Matsuyama / Imabari) [Friday, 17 Nov]
Day 7: Ehime (Imabari) Hiroshima (Shinamani Kaido) [Saturday, 18 Nov]
I am of the opinion that 1 day in Shimanami Kaido is adequate if I attempt just the main route which is about 80km [as a test run, I did 70km and finished it within 6-7 hours with lunch breaks included]. For now I will plan for two full days, however should I truncate it down to one day later, I will add an extra day to either explore Matsuyama or Okayama.

Hiroshima + Yamaguchi (~4 days)
Specific thoughts while planning:
  1. Onomichi is a pretty good base to jump to Okayama to explore Okayama, Kurashiki or Tomonoura with the Shinkansen accessibility, but it is impossible to cover them all within a single day. If I finish the Shimanami Kaido within a single day or finish it early on the second day, I will have that extra time to visit those.
  2. There's another sightseeing train etSETOra from Onomichi to Hiroshima but it only operates on Monday/Friday/Saturday/Sunday. For now the schedule could fit the train timetable pretty nicely.
  3. Would anyone suggest visiting Miyajima in the morning or in the evening? This would help me determine the order for the Kintaikyo Bridge/Miyajima day trip. Watching the sunset at either destination is pretty good in my books.

Day 8: Hiroshima (Shinamani Kaido Onomichi) [Sunday, 19 Nov]
Ideally reach Onomichi just around lunch or earlier. Chill for the rest of the day, and if I'm still up for it, explore Onomichi, including but not limited to:
Retire at a guesthouse/hotel near JR Onomichi that I have forwarded the luggage to.

Day 9: Hiroshima (Onomichi, Takehara+Kure OR Tomonoura OR Okayama) Downtown Hiroshima) [Monday, 20 Nov]

Day 10: Hiroshima (Downtown Hiroshima) [Tuesday, 21 Nov]
Spend the day surveying Hiroshima proper.

Day 11: Hiroshima (with a day trip to Yamaguchi) [Wednesday, 22 Nov]
Shimane + Tottori (4 days)
Specific thoughts while planning:
  1. Matsue becomes the main jump point for Shimane just because of the subsidized highway bus from Hiroshima, and ease of access towards Tottori later. There's no direct train between Hiroshima and Izumo/Matsue (!).
  2. Tottori is really wide size-wise, to the point that it feels more efficient to have two separate hotels in two nights (Kurayoshi/Misasa Onsen + downtown Tottori) rather than one hotel for two nights (i.e. downtown Tottori). Could be just me making excuses to get into an onsen ryokan however.
  3. Is there anything interesting at Yonago (Tottori) that I should take note of? Based on my initial survey nothing in particular pops up (other than the Tottori Prefectural Flower Park).
  4. Skipping Tottori Castle since it doesn’t seem to be interesting at first glance. Any other interesting things to at Tottori downtown (or nearby)?

Day 12: Hiroshima Shimane (Matsue) [Thursday, 23 Nov]

Day 13: Shimane (Izumo / Matsue) [Friday, 24 Nov]

Day 14: Shimane (Matsue) Tottori (Kurayoshi) [Saturday, 25 Nov]

Day 15: Tottori (Kurayoshi Tottori) [Sunday, 26 Nov]

Hyogo, Kyoto, Osaka , Nara, Mie (10 days)
Specific thoughts while planning:
  1. Kinosaki Onsen is intentionally designed to be a slow-paced leg to recover [and also to make time to enjoy the onsens].
  2. The limited express train between Kinosaki Onsen and Osaka stops by Himeji thus I thought of resting a night there instead of doing day trips via Osaka.
  3. Osaka itinerary does look sparse but that is in large part because I have already visited most of them in the past. Nevertheless, I would like to experience how different it is in autumn compared to summer [based on those few destinations that I loved going previously].
  4. I have kept one float day to decompress, OR shift to any of the other prefectures (TBC).
  5. There are (multiple) special limited express train by Kintetsu; they're not covered by JR pass but nevertheless I would love to ride on those as an experience. The Kintetsu pass covers the basic fare only but based on my preliminary cost estimate, it is still worth getting it.
  6. Is it feasible to compress Himeji and Kobe to a single day?
  7. The itineraries for Osaka, Kyoto, Nara and Mie are flexible since they're literally beside one another - makes it particularly easy to shift around base on ground situation.

Day 16: Tottori (Tottori) Hyogo (Kinosaki Onsen) [Monday, 27 Nov]

Day 17: Hyogo (Kinosaki Onsen + Northern Kyoto (Amanohashidate) day trip) [Tuesday, 28 Nov]
Day 18: Hyogo (Kinosaki Onsen Himeji) [Wednesday, 29 Nov]
Retire at Himeji for the night.
Day 19: Hyogo (Himeji Kobe) Osaka (Dotonburi) [Thursday, 30 Nov]
Day trip to Kobe, before continuing further down to Osaka.
Day 20: Osaka [Friday, 1 Dec]
Osaka Nostalgia (acid) trip, speedrun edition: revisiting places that I want to go again
Day 21: Osaka (Nara day trip) [Saturday, 2 Dec]
Spend a day in Nara.
Day 22: Osaka (Mie day trip) [Sunday, 3 Dec]
Day trip to Mie.
Day 23: Osaka ('north' Kyoto day trip) [Monday, 4 Dec]
(north) Kyoto day trip.
Whichever choice, return back to Osaka for the night. Look out for Kyoto-specific food such as Yudofu, Saba Sushi, Warabi Mochi, Nishin Soba (にしんそば) etc.
Day 24: Osaka ('south' Kyoto day trip) [Tuesday, 5 Dec]
(south) Kyoto day trip edition (mainly Uji and Fushimi).
Head back to Osaka and retire for the night. Consider doing any other night activities in Osaka if time, and body permits.
Day 25: Osaka (wildcard) [Wednesday, 6 Dec]
Spare day to do whatever I feel like doing OR reallocate this to another prefecture. Intentionally left blank for later planning
Kanazawa, Gifu+ (4 days)
Specific thoughts while planning:
  1. Is it likely for the skiing season to open around 9~10 December at Shiga Kogen or Nozawa Onsen? Would very much like to try skiing for fun, but am uncertain if the snow condition would be satisfactory by then. Some of the skiing website indicates that these two destinations are usually the first to open. I would like to seek advise on this if possible [never skiied before].
  2. As an additional question to point 1, is 2 days adequate just to get a flavor on skiing?
  3. Kanazawa is a pretty solid jump point to Shirakawago/Takayama via express buses (~1 to 2 hour one way).
  4. My initial planning considered going to Kurobe Gorge (Toyama) but apparently the railways are closed from December onwards. Please correct me if I am mistaken.
  5. Another sightseeing train in Kanazawa that I can fit in nicely in my current plans (花嫁のれん), runs on Mon/Fri/Sat/Sun.
Day 26: Osaka Ishikawa (Kanazawa (Kanazawa cityside)) [Thursday, 7 Dec]
Any outstanding spots not completed today, to be rolled over to the next 2 days (if possible).

Day 27: Ishikawa (Kanazawa cityside) / Gifu (Shirakawago, Takayama) [Friday, 8 Dec]

Day 28: Ishikawa (Kanazawa cityside / outskirts) [Saturday, 9 Dec]
Side trip to Wakura Onsen / Nanao for anime-related sightseeing. (Insomanics after Class, Hanasaku Iroha)
Day 29: Ishikawa (wildcard) [Sunday, 10 Dec]
Spare day to do whatever I feel like doing OR reallocate this to another prefecture. Intentionally left blank for later planning
Tokyo (~6 days)
Specific thoughts while planning:
  1. Specific interest to target: anime/vtuber stuff, music (piano in particular), bookstores etc.
  2. This is the point in time I should go ham on souvenier purchase if I have not done so. I'll probably get an extra cardboard box or duffel bag to lug with me to the airport to store extra stuff.
  3. Would like to seek recommendation on where I should set my base for the 5~6 days here. For now I am planning to pit at Ginza, subject to availability and cost. My thought is that as long as its along the Yamanote line everything rolls I suppose.
  4. Hard pass on Golden Gai on the Shunjuku leg (I do not drink).
  5. There's way too many to list in terms of what I would like to do in Tokyo, but I have listed items that are of particular interest to me first within the available time frame. If you have strong opinions on specific locations do let me know.
Day 30: Ishikawa (Kanazawa) Tokyo (Ginza) [Monday, 11 Dec]
Day 31: Tokyo (Shibuya, Shinjuku and Nakano) [Tuesday, 12 Dec]
Explore ('west') Tokyo, namely Shibuya, Shinjuku and Nakano.
Day 32: Tokyo (Akibahara, Asakusa and Sky Tree) [Wednesday, 13 Dec]
Day 33: Tokyo (Kamakura day trip OR Ikebukuro) [Thursday, 14 Dec]
EITHER take a day trip Kamakura, OR explore northern Tokyo (Ikebukuro)
Kamakura leg:
Tokyo (Ikebukuro leg):
Day 34: Tokyo (wildcard) [Friday, 15 Dec]
Spare day to do whatever I feel like doing OR reallocate this to another prefecture. Intentionally left blank for later planning

Day 35: Tokyo Home [Saturday, 16 Dec]
If you're still reading up to this point, here's my own personal ramblings/thoughts on JR pass usage:
I have thought of two ways of doing this for the first 21 days:
a. easy-mode : just get 21 days JR global pass before the price hike at 60450 yen, OR b. hard-mode: get a 7 day JR global pass (to cover the NEX fees, the basic fee on the Sunrise Seto to Shikoku, as well as limited express trains within Shikoku) (29650) + 5 days for JR Okayama Hiroshima Yamaguchi Area Pass (15000) + 4 days for JR Sanin Okayama Area Pass + 5 days for JR Kansai Wide Area Pass (10000) for a total of 59230.
The initial conclusion was to go with option A since that reduces the administrative burden, but I realized the individual passes do have its own perk which truimphs over the global JR pass. For instance, the Sanin Okayama Area Pass provides a (minor) discount for the Adachi Museum of Art; the Kansai Wide Pass covers the Kyotango route between Kinosaki Onsen and Amanohashidate which the global JR pass does not cover, JR Okayama Hiroshima Yamaguchi Area Pass covers JR buses within Hiroshima for free, therefore I am inclined to go with the hell option (option B) as it stands.
For the remaining 14 days, I could also get the global 14 day JR pass at 47250 yen but it is not worth it at all, because I will be relying largely on Kintetsu for the Osaka/Kyoto/Nara/Mie leg which the JR pass most certainly does not cover.
So all in all, there's quite little incentive to get the global JR pass after I worked out my schedule, apart from the initial 7 days for the Sunrise Seto jump which the All Shikoku Pass will not cover.
Through the hodge-podge of multiple area passes, it works out to around 102890 yen for the whole trip of 35 days, contrast with 107700 yen for a 21 + 14 global JR pass. While there's a minor cost saving doing the hard way which sweetens the deal, the additional minor perks associated with the area passes sells it for me, as I would had to pay more out of pocket to cover non-JR pass buses/rails and such which would add up to much greater cost than I would had anticipated. Also, if I did this trip post-price hike in October, the calculus becomes a no-brainer: avoid the global JR pass like the plague.
Thank you very much for your opinions, suggestions and advice in advance!
