2023.06.02 07:58 moralcoffee My WFH job is eating me alive, I haven't been out in a fortnight
I'm introverted and I like being at home and I have plenty of Hobbies and stuff to do at home but the problem is when I was working at work I was at least getting out, and I do need to get out in order to maintain my mental health so it was good that it was already happening but as it is now the baseline outings that I need, to not be considered a complete hermit, even if it was only 20% out 80% home, aren't even happening.
I currently haven't been out in 2 weeks and I'm aware of just how much I'm missing out on. I see a beautiful day outside and I just don't want to step out even though I know that I should. That's not even accurate I do want to step out but it's like breaking the inertia and leaving the house which is so hard.
Does anyone else struggle with the combination of working from home and not having many reasons to go out? And how have you incorporated outings more?

2023.06.02 07:57 ineedababybeaver It's time for me to grow up
I'm 24, still living at home. I've had stints where I had roommates/rented but no significant amount of time away from home mainly due to bad habits and addiction.
A while back I got clean, and since then I decided that I wanted to join the military. It's an idea that I had played around with many times in years prior but recently it hit me that I really want to do this. I've spoken w/ a recruiter and am set up to go to meps (registration essentially) in about a month. I'm extremely excited about this and my reasons for joining are numerous and mean a lot to me.
However, like I mentioned previously I do still live at home. The problem with that is my single mother, who's primarily raised me my entire life, does this constant thing where everything is great then seemingly out of nowhere I'm being threatened to get kicked out. She's done this my entire life; not with being kicked out, but going from everything is great to suddenly I've been fucking up for a long time and she doesn't know what to do with me. Even as a kid, I don't mean just in my addiction.
Today I called out of work because I didn't wake up until 10 minutes after the time I need to leave to get to work on time from my house (about an hour) due to the fact I didn't catch sleep until early morning. (my shifts are 2-11pm) I didn't just wake up naturally, my mother who was at work had my grandmother barge into our home and yell at me to wake up cause I "can't afford to lose this job" and she didn't leave until I got into the shower.
I'd already verified if I needed to I'd be okay to call out when I could tell I wasn't going to fall asleep at any reasonable time. I am 24 for gods sake, she does this with every aspect of my life. She needs to text me and know every detail of my day, of my work, how much I slept, have I eaten etc and today I snapped and told her to stop helicoptering me which I think hit a nerve because I'm sure she realizes that she does/or has been told that she does before. Either way it made me realize I have to get out.
With that thought in mind, earlier tonight I called my grandparents (who live in the town I work) and let them know I'm joining the National Guard and if possible it'd be really beneficial for me to stay with them until I leave for basic as long as it didn't impose on them. They were all for it and understood the reasons why and agreed it would probably be best. I need to be able to focus on moving forward with my life and being able to live it without someone hovering over my head. I can't focus this way and I hate it. I understand with my past why she may feel inclined to be more overbearing but fuck.
So tomorrow I need to tell my mom I'll be staying with them and the reasons why. I'll try to do so in a way that doesn't burn any bridges but it needs to be done.
Thanks for anyone who took the time to read this rant.

2023.06.02 07:57 Comfortable_Corner80 Rotman Commerce Jobs
I just finished my first year at Ryerson University, studying Accounting and Finance.
I have noticed that many Rotman Commerce students graduating in 2026 already have secured internships on LinkedIn. I was wondering if Is this a common occurrence or just a small subset on LinkedIn?
I am asking this question because the majority of students normally get internship and coop experience within their 2nd year and above. This leaves me questioning how these RC students get it
Since, I have two previous job experiences, along with a good GPA and a good skills sets/certification. It kinda hurt seeing how students my age are already getting multiple internships and experience.
Like I am also trying to advance my career, but it is hard to do that when you do have connections or rich parents.
I was wondering, if somebody can give me advice on how I can excel and tell me the solution to this internship situation.

2023.06.02 07:56 ExpensiveMind-3399 Fibro, long Covid and PMDD
Anyone else have this supreme combo? I'm sure you can relate even if you don't have this exact combo, lol.
Looking to relate, some support, and to vent a bit!
A bit of back story:
-Diagnosed with fibro around 2010, w/ migraines, tmjd, multiple slipped and bulging cervical discs -Flares we're extremely debilitating for many years, symptoms began to settle down a bit. My endurance was up and I was feeling better, and not flaring all the time
-Diagnosed with PMDD around 2017-2018, which was hell for a few years then went back on birth control and it mostly leveled out for a while. That too is flaring up and I hate everything, all the time. I'm ragey and weepy, and cannot stand myself.
-Got Covid for the first time at the start of 2021 and just never felt great after that. Very similar to how I felt after having a viral infection that landed me in the hospital a couple of years leading to my fibro diagnosis
-Now it's migraines and flares all the time. And the PMDD is raging. Or it could be perimenopause or both. FML.
-I'm having an extremely hard time trying to cope with all of this. I cannot fully support myself as I cannot work full time as of today, and that in and of itself is hard to digest.

2023.06.02 07:56 ChibiHoodie (CO) I'm so stressed out right now
Yesterday, me and my mom came back from running errands to discover that our apartment complex was sold to a new owner. We had new management and we would be expected to pay a few hundred more dollars a month if we wanted to stay here. Only if we qualified, of course. If we can't come up with the money or if they decide not to accept our applications we will be evicted on June 30th. We have nowhere else to go. Everywhere else in our area is too expensive. We are so stressed out right now. There are people here with nowhere to go. My neighbor just had a baby. The new owners won't tell us anything. The management company they hired won't take our calls. I have so many questions. How will I know if we qualify? What are we going to do if we don't? We are all just so upset. This was sprung on us out of the blue.

2023.06.02 07:55 Feeling_Water208 If you look at my recent posts I thought I was doing well but at the end of the day I truly am just a loser
I have no friends, never kissed or had intimacy while I made hundreds of guy friends who have this, and my parent health keeps getting worse (went to many doctors today just to help my mother out and found out they had no medicine Soon I'll be by myself as she was the last person who cared about me) I remember before covid people would love each other and care nobody cares now it's truly hard to be tough in this world when there is no love. The love I do receive is sadly from the gym receptionists and we all know they have to smile at you as that's their job. I'll be honest with you my emotions have been dead since 11. I tried changing recently a lot. But this will never work out my world will never change around me no matter how hard I try to make friends or even find somebody. I'll always be a loser just like my bullies told me when I was younger. I'm going to end it once my mother passes away which is soon. 😮💨 Peace out everyone hopefully you all still have a last thread to hold onto to because mine is departing soon and never returning back ❤️✌️.

2023.06.02 07:55 Objective-Majestic Perspective and advice needed on exes and friendship.
Bare with me, I know this is a lot. I’m brand new to this sub.
I broke up with a girl I was madly in love with many years ago. While going out, we went through a ton of turmoil together, not much arguing, but going through tough things together. (For 2 1/2 yrs you wouldn’t believe the amount) We stayed friends after I broke up w/ her. I thought that we would be friends forever because of all the intense and beautiful things about our past and friendship..(This was years ago) I was dating other people & she wasn’t. At a certain point, she started dating a dude who was really into firearms, and she grew to like them too. I thought she knew how against that I am, and how it would be obvious that I couldn’t be her friend in this new situation. So we stopped being best friends, and it didn’t end super happily, I felt very upset about it all and couldn’t express myself well. I think there was some resentment still, on my end. I guess from her doing some pretty messed up stuff like cheating on me. For some reason I feel I am still processing a lot of this, or more-so, I neeeed to process a lot of this… any perspective etc is appreciated. I don’t know how to feel about it all.. I want the best for everyone. Bless up.

2023.06.02 07:55 stelazinequeen Tricked by depression?
Just wondering if anyone else has had the experience of feeling very unsupported by a partner during a period of pretty deep depression? I get a fairly bad seasonal/winter depression every year that usually subsides with spring- low mood, low energy, low sex drive that I push through, sometimes towards February I will get pretty bad with hopelessness and struggling to do anything socially or keep up with hobbies. I’ve tried meds and I get side effects fairly badly (have cracked 2 teeth from grinding, had an elevated mood episode, allergic reaction to the ED). It generally goes away by April. But! This year was particularly bad and I also had my IUD replaced in January and that led to nothing I’ve ever experienced before. including disorientation, memory lapses, intrusive suicidal thoughts with violent imagery, insomnia. The worst of it passed after about 3-4 weeks, I was able to handle it, but insomnia and violent nightmares with passive suicidal thoughts and very, very low mood that waxes and wanes. It has been truly hard to keep going. I tried meds again and had more intolerable side effects. Anyway, my partner knows that all of this has been going on, I’ve tried to say what’s happening without being dramatic or causing undue worry. However he seems to be more and more frustrated and angry with me all the time, if I can’t ‘just be happy’. I feel like it’s so hard to keep explaining this? I’ve told you so many times I think? I’m starting to lose trust and faith. He accuses me of not caring about his feelings- I do, but it’s very difficult right now because I am trying to keep my head above water. I am the sole breadwinner and I have to drag myself to 10 hour workdays but if I try to say anything about how I feel he gets really angry that I am ‘so negative’. As an example- he showed me a meme today that was a pic of a woman looking sad and said “Woman living in moment realizes all moments are connected to other moments” and I offhandedly replied, oh yeah I feel that it’s kind of like how I feel when I get off work and think about how I have all this time but I’m so tired. And he jumped at me and yelled that I can’t just have a nice laugh and then downhill from there that I wanted to start a fight with him and I am abusive etc. I don’t know. Im not sure if I can get better this way, but I also don’t trust my own judgement when I feel like this. It happens all the time and I end up feeling way worse than before.

2023.06.02 07:55 Adorable_Choice_8528 Some clarification on Autoimmom…
I wanted to provide a little clarification on exactly what this sub is and who it is for. I have received a ton of comments (on other subs I’ve shared this page on) asking if dads, grandparents, aunts, uncles, people trying for kids but who aren’t actually parents etc…can join. Of course some of the comments have been pretty snarky, ragging on the name and saying that it doesn’t sound very inclusive.
Let me start off by saying that the answer is a big fat YES. I created this sun to be a place where people can discuss and vent about things that are specific to navigating parenting while struggling with any sort of ongoing illness. As we all know, it comes with its own set of challenges that someone without kids may not understand. I have seen too many people get attacked while asking parenting related questions on other subs. I have seen responses such as “not all of us have kids,” “just tell your kids you are sick,” and the most painful one (that I have personally received multiple times) “why would you have kids knowing you have an autoimmune disease, that’s irresponsible.”
Autoimmom is not meant to be a replacement for any other disease specific sub however it is a place where you can safely bring your questions, concerns and rants knowing you won’t get attacked or have to deal with anything hurtful because you are literally preaching to the choir here. So far, this group has been nothing short of loving and supportive to one another and that’s how it will stay. I am always carefully monitoring posts and comments and will not allow anyone who is going to be hurtful, judgmental or negative. You all have my permission to tag or message me if any issues arise as well!
As far as the “non inclusive” name “Autoimmom”….I literally just thought it was a cute play on words. That is all. 😊
Bottom line, Autoimmom welcomes anyone and everyone who can benefit from being here and will continue to be a loving, supportive and often humorous outlet to anyone who needs it!
Love (and a little extra energy) to you all! 🥰

2023.06.02 07:55 SirComfortable1662 i’m at my wits end.
i don’t know how to exactly describe what is going on; but, TLDR: i’m in a horrible relationship with a narcissist, idk what to do, and i’m in a lot of debt.
im mostly writing this cause im confused and i literally keep talking to my snap AI and all it tells me is to “talk to my partner” which i have done. MANY. TIMES. but it’s also like uhhhhh, we are broke and you don’t want to help me ?
im i’m a relationship with a 25m that literally just stays home, play video games and smokes weed. i literally pay for everything - it’s like pulling teeth when trying to get him to ask his brother for money (i kinda don’t have friends cause i have become so overwhelmed with my relationship and he also says dumb stuff when i mention any kind of “friend”)
he doesn’t contribute at all with house chores - he really only cleans his area. if i mention the fact that he should help me, he gets mad and makes excuses. it’s been on my mind since he said it, but this dude really told me that whenever he gets money, he’s not going to “buy” me a thing (when i have literally paid for everything)
at this point, i need validation and guidance. i’m really bad at confronting people, but it’s getting so out of hand. i really think he is using me, but why? he always says he’s applying, i’ve seen so many places hiring, and nothing.
sometimes i feel like i’m in the wrong since i guess i enable him - but i’ve had it: i felt “YOU NEED TO LEAVE” at the tip of my tongue (but i just cannot get myself to do so). i brought home pizza, he ate most of it and started saying he was hungry just minutes after eating the pizza. then, he kept trying to get me to buy him mcdonald’s ice cream. i have a hard time saying “no” but what i don’t get is that he knows how broke we are, yet is always asking for stuff (he asks for games, food and weed). why doesn’t he get it?
i just wish i had someone. i miss my friends.

She had a tough go since her partner went Home and while she stayed on the good path for many years, she would get pulled in by that substance use and high-risk lifestyle.
Those of you who know this story all too well - you know how difficult this can be when our kin is in this state and it feels hopeless because sometimes we don't have the remedy to help - with whatever you made sense of to get through in your experience, I beg you for your good thoughts for her.
Thank you, fam. ♥️
Before I asked you, I put protocol medicine down to protect our conversation. Again, thank you.

I Previous Chapter 22: Cutting The Strings
“This was a mistake. I don’t belong here.”
The crew of Peacemaker had assigned temporary quarters to the Mako refugees. Given the ancient ship’s size, there was plenty of room available. Just as before, Rúna made certain they assigned her the same berth as Genvass. Sitting across from him as they shared a private meal, she shrugged at his statement.
“I’m not sure what else you think you could have done,” she said. “They made their minds up before we ever set foot onboard.”
“That’s not what I mean,” he answered, shaking his head. “I have accomplished exactly nothing on this mission. Hell, Terra’s diplomatic position is even worse than when we started. Hardly a ringing endorsement of my negotiation skills.”
“That is not your fault,” the Valkyrie said vehemently.
“Isn’t it?” Rising from his seat, he began pacing in the small compartment. “I knew what I was getting myself into when I accepted this assignment. I knew it was going to be an uphill battle, convincing the other races to trust us.” He sighed, coming to a halt. “But I was certain I could reach them, to show them we weren’t a threat. And now?” He rubbed at his eyes, suddenly bone-weary. “Now they hate us even worse than they do the Troika. Which is exactly what we’ll become if our hosts have their way.”
“Our ‘hosts’ as you call them, are the ones who sabotaged you,” Rúna fired back. “Them stealing Peacemaker and going on a killing spree doomed your mission, not anything you did. They pulled the rug out from underneath you and killed any chance of a diplomatic solution.”
Her words fell on deaf ears. “Don’t you understand? I’m useless,” he told her. “When the Troika attacked, you were absolutely right to drag me into our quarters and strap me to a couch like an incompetent child. I wouldn’t have reacted quickly enough on my own. The only real training I have is as a linguist, for Terra’s sake. And who needs a linguist when everyone uses voders?” he demanded, throwing up his hands. “I couldn’t help you defend the ship, and when I tried assisting Diggs, the only thing I could manage was hauling his gear around,” he said, his words filled with self-loathing, before abruptly collapsing back into his chair. “I am literally good for nothing.”
“I don’t believe that. I refuse to believe that.” Her eyes narrowed as she took full stock of him. “Perhaps once, that might have been true. I certainly didn’t think much of you when we met on Gyrfalcon. But now?” She shook her head. “You’ve changed since then, been on the receiving end of more than a few rude awakenings. So what if you can’t hold a gun, or turn a wrench? That’s not why you’re here.”
“Then why am I here?” he demanded. “Seriously, I’d really like to know.” He snorted in disgust.
Rúna stared at the glass in her hands, her expression suddenly distant. “Do you know why I signed on for this mission?” she asked softly.
Something about her tone made him look up. “No… not really,” he said after a moment. “I remember how upset you were when you barged into my office.”
That earned him a brief smile. “I was,” she chuckled. “Between the promotion and… well, never mind. It’s not important.” She sighed before meeting his gaze. “People always ask me what Sonoitii Prime was like. I don’t like talking about it, for a lot of reasons.”
Genvass nodded, though he said nothing in reply. Truth be told, he was afraid to say anything, for fear of breaking whatever fragile spell she’d woven around herself to even hint about what happened on that world. Instead, he simply waited, giving her the space she needed.
She took a deep breath, and then let it out as she struggled to get through this. “Nothing could have prepared me for that fight, and it indelibly burned every single moment of that nightmare into my brain. I’ll never be able to forget it, no matter how badly I want to.” Rúna stared into his eyes, forcing him to gaze back into hers. It was an unsettling vision, but he refused to look away. Her hand clenched her sword tightly, her knuckles showing bone white under the strain, as she fought to keep control.
“The thing I remember most,” she finally got out, “is when it was finally over. I walked off the line after they relieved me, and all I could see was what it cost.” She shuddered, reliving it once more. “It was like I was in a daze, like none of it was real. My mind just couldn’t take any more, I guess. I don’t know. I’m not a Knight.” She shrugged yet again. “I remember drifting past one of the gun positions, sandbagged in the trench. There must have been thirty, forty bodies piled up in front of it. The gunner didn’t stop firing until the barrel burst, and even then he went down hard. He died with a Zaitai dagger shoved into his belly… but his cold, dead hands were locked around that bastard’s throat.”
He could only sit there, horrified at the picture she’d just painted so vividly. He could practically see it with his own eyes.
Rúna nodded as she saw her words strike home. “Imagine that times a thousand. That’s how desperate it was. How hard we fought.” She closed her eyes, wincing at the memory. “We lost so many. Hundreds, maybe. Thousands. And not just Terrans; Ixians, Legionnaires, even Zaitai and EA, before they turned traitor on us.” Closing her eyes, she bowed her head and whispered, “... so many.”
Genvass found his voice at last. “Rúna, if you need to talk, I’m happy to listen. But… I’m not sure why you’re telling me this.”
She took a moment to compose herself before finally looking up. “Because I’ve seen firsthand the cost of war,” she said, “and I will do practically anything to keep it from happening again.”
He slowly nodded as her words struck home. “That may be the best reason I’ve ever heard,” he said at last.
She looked away, as if his words had failed to find purchase. “You said you believed peace was possible,” Rúna reminded him. “I’m not sure I do. I’ve been fighting most of my life.” She looked back at him. “But I’d like to. A galaxy at peace sounds pretty damn amazing.” She graced him with a ghost of a smile. “Terra knows it wouldn’t be the first Lost Cause I signed on for.”
Genvass smiled in return. “I would never have pegged you as an idealist.”
“I’m not,” she answered. “I’m just tired of the killing.”
He started to respond, only to have his attention pulled away as the hatch slid open, revealing Samara standing in the doorway. “I hope I’m not interrupting?” she told the pair.
Rúna shot daggers at her, while Genvass merely sighed. “Would it matter if you were?” he asked.
“Not really,’ she conceded. “We need to talk, you and I.” She glanced over at the Valkyrie. “In private.”
“Over my dead body,” she snarled.
“I’d be careful making those sorts of ultimatums,” Samara said evenly, “especially here.”
She jumped to her feet, her hand already reaching for her sword as Genvass grabbed her arm. “It’s all right,” he said, “I’ll talk to her.” Rúna started to protest, only for him to hold up a hand. “You should probably check in with the others anyway,” he suggested. “I’ll be fine, I promise.”
Her eyes traveled between the two before finally giving him a brusque nod. “I’ll be right outside,” she declared, giving Samara a death glare before exiting the compartment.
“I don’t think she likes me very much,” she said affably, taking a seat.
“Can you blame her?”
Samara smiled, shaking her head. “No, I don’t,” she answered. “I’ve burned a lot of bridges in my life. It’s no surprise that she’s one of them.”
“What do you want to talk about, Samara?” he asked. “I thought we’d covered everything.”
“Not everything,” the Protean disagreed. “I’m sorry that things got a little heated the last time we chatted, but I stand by my position. You, of all people, should understand why.”
“I do, but that doesn’t mean I agree with it,” Genvass said point-blank. “If you stopped by simply to rehash our conversation, I really don’t see the point.”
“No, that’s not why I’m here,” Samara explained. “Like I said, I still have my reasons for taking the fight to our enemies. Good reasons, in my opinion.” Her expression was unapologetic. “But when I replayed our chat in my head… or more accurately, when Guardian did… I realized there was something you’d meant to say, but didn’t. What was it?”
Something about the way she’d asked caught his attention. “I wanted to know where you got the idea to steal Peacemaker,” he said cautiously.
Samara nodded. “And why do you want to know that?” she pressed.
Genvass scrutinized her, looking for a sign, but she was as guarded as ever. “Because when I began to examine this mission in earnest, I became convinced there was more going on than met the eye.”
She took a moment to consider that statement. “You may be right,” she said finally.
Her admission caught him by surprise. “Care to elaborate?” he prodded her.
“Someone stopped by my office around the time you found that medical facility,” she said somewhat cryptically. “Their visit was a surprise, given we’d had few interactions in the past. We exchanged polite pleasantries, discussed various topics of mutual interest, marveled at the discoveries teams like yours were unearthing regularly.” Samara shrugged as she relayed the conversation. “I assumed they wanted my insight, or rather, Guardian’s. Not the first time someone had consulted me for that sort of thing.”
“Where are you going with this?” he inquired, giving her a curious look.
An enigmatic smile appeared as she regarded him. “As they were getting ready to leave, they made an offhand remark. It didn’t really register at the time, but later that evening, Guardian reminded me of what they’d said. It got me thinking.”
“And what was the remark?” Genvass prompted her.
“They just mentioned how odd it was we hadn’t stumbled across any ships,” she relayed to him. “You’d think there would have been at least a few lying around, but we hadn’t found a single vessel anywhere, not even a shuttle. And it was odd, I realized. What’s more, Guardian concurred. We kicked the idea around a bit, him and I, and eventually decided on two possibilities. Either we’d spotted no ships because there weren’t any to find, or else they’d been well camouflaged.”
“Makes sense,” he agreed.
“It does, doesn’t it?” Samara chuckled. “Pretty much covers all the bases right there. Of course, the question we asked ourselves next was, assuming there were camouflaged ships in the system, how would we go about finding them? It’s a big system, and these are the Precursors we’re talking about. If they didn’t want something to be found, it’s safe to assume we lowly Terrans wouldn’t find it.” She gazed at him evenly. “What we needed was an informant.”
Genvass already knew where this was going. “Athena,” he said quietly.
“Athena, indeed,” Samara nodded. “Of course, it was still possible we’d wind up empty-handed, that there were no ships, but at least we’d know, one way or the other. Once we decided to consult Athena, we realized we were going to need a ride to visit her in her domain. Not to mention a partner, in case we were successful.”
“At which point you recruited our mutual friend, Captain Hadad, I presume?” Genvass deduced. “Given your intentions, I imagine he took little convincing.”
“You imagine correctly,” she agreed. “I was certain I could enlist him to the cause, given our past. He’s no more a fan of the Troika than I am.”
“And with him on board, you could consult with Athena, who led you directly to Peacemaker.” Genvass shook his head. “All tied up in a nice neat bow… with one exception.” He regarded her warily. “You’ve deliberately avoided naming the individual who first sparked your curiosity. I assume there’s a reason for that.” He folded his hands, awaiting her response.
“There is,” she nodded. “At first I chalked it up to mere coincidence, but the more I thought about it, the more I realized their contacting me was a deliberate act. What I didn’t understand was why.” Samara leaned back n her chair. “I’ve been in the business a long time, Genvass, and I know all the players. This individual, however, had never appeared on my radar, and even more perplexing, I couldn’t see a motive. Most individuals who involve themselves in ‘The Great Game’ have obvious goals; power, control, the usual.” She rested her chin on her hands. “But not this one. They’d shown no interest in that sort of thing, despite having had several opportunities to get their hands dirty. Which tells me one of two things. That either all of this is nothing more than a wild-goose chase, spurred by coincidence, or…” She paused, awaiting his reaction, until finally, he bowed to the inevitable. “Or what?” he asked her.
“Or,” she continued, “that they are very, very good.”
With a sinking feeling, he let out the breath he’d been holding. He already knew what she was about to say, and why she’d taken this circuitous path before revealing the truth.
But he still needed to hear her say it.
“The name, Samara,” he insisted.
“The individual’s name,” she disclosed, revealing at last her hole card, “is Dàifu Tsoumlum Khatsakhox, leader of your own Dharmist Clan.” Their eyes met. “I believe you’re acquainted.”
That earned her a sardonic grunt as the blade struck home. “I’m starting to think,” he said at last, “that I don’t know her at all.”

2023.06.02 07:53 Sir_Legicide1 First impressions of Life is But a Dream
So, I dropped literally everything to listen to this album the second I got the notifications on my phone!! I just finished it not too long ago and then went outside for a smoke and thought for a few minutes to form a complete opinion. I went into this album with no real expectations aside from already having heard Nobody and We Love you. I think this album is awesome, not just because it's different but because it flows very nicely, almost like a movie! It progressively gets weirder and explores more different ideas as you get to the backside of the album. And you can really hear how all different forms of art have inspired this album in many ways! They did wacky, weird and different things on this album that we haven't heard from them and I think they did a really good job! This is, perhaps the most creative I think they ever got with their music and I love it!

2023.06.02 07:52 TheMintyLeaf LPT Request: How do I ensure I won't miss anything when I delete my old life-long email account?
I'm thinking about dropping my ancient old yahoo account that I have been using since I was 12 years old. I have signed up everything with this account, even dumb old video games ads that gives free coins if I do a survey or whatever. It has gained many spam mails as much as important emails on a daily basis. Tired of marking everything spam but a new spam mail would pop up. I'm thinking of dropping this email account and moving onto gmail or outlook.
How do I make sure that no one important emails this account when it is gone? My whole life is tied to this account. Let's say I stopped going to a certain doctor's office long ago. So this place probably wouldn't be the first on my mind to list out what accounts/places I need to update my info. What if one day they needed to send me an email of personal records? How do I make sure this doesn't go amiss?

2023.06.02 07:52 alkme_ Can only craft legendary quick hacks once?
Have 20 intelligence and Bartmoss perk. I crafted a handful of legendary quick hacks. Now when I look at my craft list I can't seem to craft them again? Cyberpsychosis for example. I can't craft the epic or legendary quick hack anymore. Is there a limit to how many you can have in your inventory? Or can you only craft them once?

2023.06.02 07:52 nobackup42 Seeking Advice. Returning “home”
So I have been away for many a year (41) .. long story army then the wanderlust.
Currently in SEA, married and have 3 young kids (6,8,9), kids have british passports
Main triggers are. Kids can’t actually even live in there mothers country after 18, as they are automatically foreigners (due to me), so later in life they will have to stand in line and will never be seen as nationals
Personally I also find the local education system (even with them attending “international School. (British Cambridge System) to be questionable at best, with no real “universities” to speak of, so I would most likely look to send them back to Scotland any ways (Strathclyde - or what ever it’s called today)
So with this in mind, I’m looking at “coming home”, but so many unanswered questions
How to effectively find Temporary accommodation
How to Get the right paperwork (Ni number etc) as everything has changed since 1980.
How to get the kids into school
Best areas to live today (I’m from Hamilton)
Any tips on how to build a credit score
not worried about work as I have a ONLINE business that I can still run from anywhere
Need to get my spouse a visa but consulted the local British embassy so seems straight forward
Any useful hints on the above would be appreciated

2023.06.02 07:51 Misfit_666 How to Play MANHUNT 1 & 2, and the Best Ways to do It Guide.
Howdy, folks! I've decided to write up a guide on which releases of MANHUNT and MANHUNT 2 are the best to play and how you can play them!
I'm gonna assume that everyone here is familiar enough with the games that I won't go into detail about the games in general, so I'll keep this guide to solely explaining which releases of MANHUNT and MANHUNT 2 are the best to play, and how to play them. This guide will not explain how to play either game on every platform they were released, but the platforms that I personally believe they are best played on.
Playstation 2: The original platform MANHUNT was released on is the PS2, and of course, it's still the best way to play the game, if you haven't already. MANHUNT PS2 copies are readily available via online stores like EBay, Facebook Marketplace and other retro gaming websites for an affordable price. If the online options don't work out, then check your local used video/game store. Or...mod it onto your PS2? Idk how to do that, so moving on!
Xbox One/One S-X/Series S-X: Coming in at second place for the best way to play MANHUNT today is the re-released version of MANHUNT on modern Xbox consoles. I have not played the game to completion on these consoles, but the game looks good and functions as it should, which is saying more than you can for the PS5 re-release... On my Xbox One X, the game runs fine, plays as it should and has the best graphics/image quality out of every console release. Really, it looks good! A solid platform to play MANHUNT on if you don't have a PS2.
PC: And in last place, we have the PC release of MANHUNT... Which, as I understand it, has been broken since the day it came out. With that being said, this is obviously my least recommended platform to play MANHUNT on. If you have no other option, then I recommend buying the game on Steam and fixing it with mods, including the couple that I will link to in the comments. Doing so will get ye a decent release of MANHUNT to play around with, but still, I recommend the PS2 and Xbox releases, if you're not too keen on the mods.
Alrighty, with MANHUNT out of the way, we can move onto MANHUNT 2.
PC: Unlike the first game, PC is actually the best platform to play the second game on, hands down. The only thing is, though, is that MANHUNT 2 is banned in a lot of places, so you can't just buy it on Steam or GoG and call it a day, unfortunately. Luckily, it's not that difficult to get the game and play it. You can easily find the game and a ton of mods to go with it, including mods that uncensor the execution cut scenes, as well as add in previously cut content and much more. Now, despite the hassle it maybe to play this game on PC, I wouldn't just tell you this is a guide on how to play things, then leave out telling you how to play them, so let's get into that next.
HOW TO PLAY MH2 ON PC
Alrighty. This isn't going to be a super ball buster of a process, but it is going to be a process. Below, I will detail a step-by-step guide on how to play the Uncensored/Modded PC release of MANHUNT 2.
First of all, you'll need the game files and all that jazz, so check the links I've commented below this post, and follow along with the steps, downloading the files as you move onto the next step.
- Download the game files from the link provided, and make absolutely, positively sure that you download the file just below it labeled, "NOCD", because we'll need it for the next step.
- Find and open your MH2 directory, so that it displays all the folders therein, then open up the NOCD files folder to the side of it. All ye gotta do is drag and drop the .exe file from the NOCD files folder into the MH2 directory, overwrite as needed, then you're done. This will replace the original .exe file with the NOCD .exe file; this is necessary, because launching the original .exe file will prompt you with a screen that requires you to enter an access key to play the game at all, and that's really lame.
- Okay, you could go ahead and call it here. But...don't you want the uncensored executions? The cut executions, the cut dialogue and all the goodies that you'd be missing out on if you stopped reading this part of the guide now? Yeah, let's get into how you can return MANHUNT 2 to it's former glory.
- This step is for the PS2 Beta Mod/Uncensored and extended executions mod. I do want to say this specific mod I have is older and there are other mods that might accomplish the same thing, but we'll stick with this one. Anyway, find the link below, download it, read the description below the download, then come on back. Alrighty, this one is pretty simple, too, just a lot more dragging and dropping. Open the folders side by side, just like before, then manually drag and drop each folder (EXCEPT the levels folders) from the BetaMod folder into the MH2 directory, overwriting as needed, then you're done. The reason I made an exception for the levels folders is because they are levels that were cut/whatever else, so playing them first may not be what you want. You decide!
- This step is for the Ermaccer Manhunt 2 plug in, which is a plug in mod that enhances Manhunt 2 in several ways. I highly recommend this as an essential plug in mod, and I also recommend looking around Ermaccers GitHub page to learn more about it and the many other mods they've made for Manhunt 1 & 2. This is the easiest one, so are ye ready? Just download the file and extract to the MH2 directory. Donezo.
Sheweeeee, we're almost done! Now, you really can call it a day if you're satisfied, but before you settle too soon, I want to encourage you to search up the head juice load of mods that have been made for both of these games. There are a lot, and their purposes vary from just fixing the games, enhancing graphics and FPS, to being able to change your character skin, add an FOV slider and much more. Definitely look around Ermaccers GitHub and the other sites that will be yielded from a Google search of, "Manhunt 1/2 mods".
That's it! You can double click that bad boyah and get 'er going. Like I said, though, definitely check out some other mods that could enhance your gameplay!
Now, let's briefly talk about the other releases of Manhunt 2.
PS2/PSP/Wii/Android: I won't be explaining how to play these releases, because I don't care. MANHUNT 2 played on any platform that isn't PC is a disservice to yourself, in my opinion. The PS2 release, as well as the other two console releases are censored/cut, which makes them unplayable to me. I recently purchased a copy of MANHUNT 2 for PS2 just to have it and try it out, and it is just...awful. The censoring of the executions makes them almost unbearable to look at, which maybe the point? I don't know the point, but I do know that it hurts my eyes, and that I'd rather not play it. Of course, if you have no other option or just want to experience MANHUNT 2 on the PS2 like I did, then by all means, try out one of these releases, and I hope that you enjoy it!
Aaaand now we're done! I hope this helps some folks wanting to play MANHUNT, mostly the second one, because the first one didn't get banned into abandonware lmao. If you have any questions or would like to add your own recommendations, then please do so in the comments!
Take it easy!

2023.06.02 07:51 Imaginary_Order_6611 What are the everyday things that have been difficult to get in the new country?
I am living in a very nice, cosmopolitan capital city. I was sure that I would not have trouble finding:
Good hair dressers (there are many salons and some very expensive ones but unless you spend a small fortune, you can't get a good haircut here).
Decent potatoes. For the love of taters! This country has the worse potatoes. Even the locals complain about it. Every now and then we see russet taters from the US but they sell out in a wink.
Unsweetened yogurt. Every brand of yogurt, every single one, no matter if it's Greek or regular style, the yogurt is sweet even when the package says "natural, no flavor or sugar added."
Over the counter meds in large quantities. OTC meds here are inexpensive but you can't buy a bottle of ibuprofen with 90 caps. You've got to buy 9 boxes of 10 caps each. Same thing about paracetamol, etc.
How about you guys?
