2023.06.09 09:33 zsh-958 I was so blind, I left my DeadBedroom and I was right to do it!

Long story short, I brought my gf, her kid and her mom to live to my house, I brought all of them from Russia, I paid everything this whole 2022 (ticket planes, airbnb, food...), rent a new apt, buy all furniture she wants, utilities, literally everything she want kinda to make her happy and don't miss her apt in Russia.
5 months ago we broke up, we were fighting a lot for small things, we were not even sleeping in the same bed, so after all I did, I feel just as a partner, a father for her kid, and a partneATM for her.
Also she was demanding a ring to even kiss me or sleep together and ofc have sex...but hey, she is a single mom and ofc she didn't ask for a ring to her ex.
All of that leads to a deadbedroom, not even a common bedroom, not even kisses, no hugs, touching, just partners in the same apt
With all the pain in my heart I left the apt, so I left her decide what she can do, stay here in this country, back to Russia, move to another country, it took 5 months to her to get Visa for NA, while that happen I keep paying everything, amazon, food, apt, clothes, bills, everything, making gifts for her kid.
Every single day I was thinking on her and her kid which I feel as mine, I was crying and I was devastated because I really love that kid and I felt so bad because that kid loves me too.
We talk sometimes, I said Im sorry, I want to fix it...but she continue with the idea of NA.
She just talk me to buy the tickets, help her with some stuffs and so on, because I deeply love her and her kid and I feel responsible for her here, I pay the tickets, for her.
Today when I back to my apt after I left her in the airport, I found like the apt is a complete mess, is dirty, looks like she didn't clean since I left, not even for her kid, it was rotten milk in the fridge, she left me all her meds, old clothes and even clothes which I gift to her, literally I just have receives and small boxes of meds, she even took electronic toothbrush hahaha.
The worst part which brokes my heart and makes me no feel sorry for her is SHE LEFT AN SPECIAL ALBUM I MADE FOR HER AND HER KID, it was an album with all the photos she send me during this years, every photo had an story which I could tell, I gift this to her on Christmas, when she open, she said thank and she even didn't check, back then it hurts also, but I said, well, later we will see together.
But look this album under all garbage she left, It made me realise I was nothing for her, I don't know what was her plan, if she loves me in some point at all, I don't if should I ask why she left this album, maybe she will say it was for me, or she didn't notice or she didn't like it, but she made sure to take pencils and color pencils, draw book I bought for her, what you would do?
I will cry when I will remember the kid and I will see that kid alone, but well, i cannot keep being the stupid man who defends her and protect her, making her excuses for everything she does.
Jeeesus I was so blind, so stupid, I was so in love like I prefer to ignore that behavior and blame myself all the time because I left her in another country.
If you want, share when did you noticed and decide you was right for what you did, what was the trigger.

Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak
Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak
This guide and trophy notes are under construction and will update over time.
Time: 200 hrs +
100% Clear: 400 hrs +
Difficulty: 7.5/10
The Monster Hunter franchise returns with the previously Nintendo exclusive finally getting its release on PlayStation. Prepare for one long, grindy and fulfilling ride collecting monster crowns all over again. This guide will now include the massive Sunbreak DLC complete with new monsters and better end game gear to make your platinum or 100% completion more efficient.
Trophy Guide
Powerpyx Trophy Guide for Monster Hunter Rise
Powerpyx Trophy Guide for Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak
Full credit to Powerpyx for the guides.
Wiki Guides
Credit to Game8 and Fextralife for the excellent wikis. Game8 has the more comprehensive guide complete with locations on where to farm certain items, along with equipment builds and other very useful information. Best to choose one of those builds as your base and swap out armors and skills along the way to find the build perfect for you. Fextralife has a more tabulated approach on the info that helps you get a quick glance on what you are looking for with lesser clicks but may have only concise information compared to Game8. For example, If you are looking for an item drop from a small monster, Fextralife will show you drop rates and which map to visit for your hunt. Game8 will give you a little more and show you the areas in the map where these small monsters are located.
If you're a beginner to the game or the series in general, the beginning sections and tutorials will naturally be quite overwhelming. Take things one step at a time, find a weapon that fits your play style best and enjoy the ride until you get a decent amount of monster hunts in to familiarize yourself with the game.
There will be tons of things to tweak and learn about on this game and no single article can give justice to the complexities of how to fully optimize your experience so additional research is recommended. Treat this article as a supplementary guide.
Efficiency Tips
Enjoy the story and progress through the main quest line as soon and as often as you can. The reason for this is as you progress through the story and your hunter rank increases, more equipment upgrades will be available to you along with the ability to upgrade the base defense of your gear further which unlocks incrementally as you increase in rank. The more defense you have means the more hits you can take and less healing items you consume which you can spend learning the monsters moves and hitting it.
Work on the 🏆 Beat-up Construction Kit as soon as possible and unlock all camp site locations on each map so you can fast travel conveniently closer to your target's location.
Materials List and Locations can be found here on Game8 to search for your gear and quest requirements. Browse it or simply drop the item you are looking for on the search bar.
Blights and Status Ailments Explained and their Cures is explained best in GadgetGabe's Top Voted answer from this GameFAQs forum. Use this wisely to cure yourself ASAP and stay at tip top shape for your fight. You can eventually customize your item load outs when hunting particular monsters.
Register an inventory and radial menu layout that is best for your hunt and tweak it accordingly if you are working on a solo hunt or are in a group. You can set up your action bar (the bar that uses the left and right d-pad) too.
Learn about monster elemental and ailment weaknesses, weak points and parts that you can sever to improve your success rate in a fight. E.g. Flash bombs work well on monsters in flight. Severing a Pukei-pukei's tail makes the monster incapable of it's wide poison gas attack.
Monster Elemental and Ailment Weaknesses and Immunities credit to Pro Game Guides. Monster Hunter Rise explains monster elemental weaknesses well but does not give too much of a description of what elements the monster utilizes against you. To learn that and build the right resistances, refer to the Fextralife MHR Wiki.
As you progress through your hunts, make sure to pick up any hunting helpers and golden/gilded spiribugs along the way. You will need 500 and 1000 respectively for the trophies 🏆 Hunting Helpers Plate and 🏆 Golden Spiribug Plate. If you want to farm Spiribugs exclusively, this video shows an excellent route while displaying some skills on speedy map traversal.
When you are in town, there will be times when you will be prompted that a sale is ongoing from the two merchants. Always take action on this prompt and participate in the lottery that is only available during this sale to progress towards the 12 room decorations you need to win as part of the 🏆 Sturdy Padlock. If the grand prize of the lottery is a room decoration, you have to roll a Jackpot (different from a Bingo) to win it. Even if the grand prize is not a room decoration, you are given a required room decoration for winning 100 items in the lottery.

🏆 Extravagant Cashbox
Awarded for earning 1,000,000 Zenny. The fastest method to earn zenny is by participating in the 2 Star Low Rank Event Quest - Gotta Hoard Fast!. It can be done with a group in 1 minute and rewards you with a Golden Egg which you can sell to the merchant for 20,000z. Use whenever you are short on money. This is also the best quest to use if you want to trigger merchant sales quickly and roll on the lottery.
Using your silk bind/aerial moves to deliver mount damage (indicated by a blue cloud background on the damage inflicted) is a good tactic to learn and master. Arekkz Gaming's Monster Riding Tutorial video explains this well. You can also scout the area where you mount the monster and bump him into special areas on the map that will deal extra damage.
High Rank Quests
An Armorcharm and Powercharm will now be available to purchase from the two item merchants. These work as permanent stat increases as long as you have them in your Item Pouch. When you reach HR7, you will eventually be able to upgrade these charms into Armortalon and Powertalon. These stack and you may repurchase Armorcharm and Powercharm and hold all four items in your Item Pouch.
Decorations will unlock from the Smithy and the Melding Pot will unlock from the item merchants. This would be a good time to study the skills you have available in conjunction with your armor skills and start creating defensive/offensive load outs based on what you are up against.
For talisman crafting via the Melding Pot, craft out the desired skill you need and use accordingly. Once you have your talisman of choice, always roll with Melding - Wisp of Mystery and Melding - Rebirth (unlocks last on a higher HR). They will cost more materials to craft, but will also have better chances of a Rarity 7 Talisman with more skills and better decoration slots.
Prepare status resistances/immunities depending on the monsters you are up against and build up defense, elemental defense and even add elemental attack against them as well. Take note that elemental attack increases on skills only increases an existing element on weapons (or elemental ammo for bowguns) and can not create an element from a non-elemental weapon source.
For more on elemental damage and elemental resistances, see Fextralife's articles linked accordingly.
Armorskin and Demondrug and their corresponding Mega version are items consumed once and will last until you faint or complete the quest. Invest in them as soon as you have the zenny to afford them. You will need to farm Pale Extract from the monster Khezu or purchased as a rare find in the Argosy to craft the mega drugs. You may also choose to deploy the meowcenaries to fight a Khezu to increase your item farm.
Master Rank Quests and Sunbreak Content
With Sunbreak comes a whole new base map and two new locations to explore. Like the base game, there are a number of trophies that involve you interacting with the townsfolk and the goods and services they have to offer. Refer to this video guide for a checklist of what you need to be doing after every quest to cover the trophies 🏆 Snowy Cohoot Minipouch, 🏆 Secret Honey Jar, 🏆 Unbreakable Bag, 🏆 Solid Padlock, 🏆Polychrome Acorn and 🏆 Sojourn Necklace.
🏆 Solid Padlock requires another set of items you need to win in the lottery but take note that the Gargolda Statue only starts appearing after you take a picture of it. Take a daytime expedition for a photo of the creature. Gamer Guru's video shows you how to do it.
Refer to Game8's Eurekacorn article for more ways on farming Eurekacorns for your Polychrome Acorn trophy. Efficiency Tip: Target an expedition with a Herb Node in the Frost Islands together with a Khezu Node for both Eurekacorns and Pale Extracts.
For efficient map traversal, unlock the alternative camp sites on the two new Sunbreak areas along with the new buddy recon points. You will have to unlock 2 recon points per map, for a total of 12 for 🏆 Buddy Whistle. Darcblade has an excellent video guide to cover this.
Crown Hunting
🏆 Mini Crown Plaque and 🏆 Gold Crown Plaque will most likely be the last trophies you will get in the game as these are very grindy to obtain. These entail slaying or capturing the smallest and largest versions of each monster, awarding you a gold crown on your Hunter's Notes. An alternative grouped view of all your crowns can be found in OPT -> Multiplayer -> Guild Cards -> View -> L1 for Hunting Log. Unlike MH World, Rise does not include a crown notification in the points reward section after a hunt. You will have to check your Hunter Notes manually. You do get a prompt of "Monster Size Updated" right after the kill or capture though as your best indicator of a possible crown.
Crown Hunting Tips and Drop Rates explained by Luke Albigés of TrueAchievements
Efficient Strategy
You will want to clear out all the crowns you can possibly obtain from the quests with the 100% chance or boosted crown rate quests. For everything else, learn how to crown snipe to save time and not waste too much time on normal sized targets. If your are sure that your target monster is not a crown size, abort your quest and start a new one. Take note that you need to capture/kill 10 monsters of each type for their respective monster scroll to progress on your 🏆 Sturdy Padlock so anything close to a perceived small or large crown would be worth the kill. The Sunbreak Expansion and Master Rank buffs up the crown monsters appearance rate to as high as 10% for large and 6% for minis. You are best saving the crown hunt for last as you have to tackle Anomaly Investigations for the Sunbreak 🏆 Bahari's Hand Wound Birdie, which entails you earning and spending 3000 Investigation Coins as rewards for these type of quests along with clearing out every single Master Rank quest for the 🏆 Record of Utmost Valor - Master and clearing out 1-4 star anomaly quests for the 🏆 Painting - Crimson Nightmare. There are a total of 7 1-star anomaly quests to unlock and 8 quests for 2-4 stars. There is a good chance that you will be earning majority of these crowns along your progression towards these three trophies with minimal crown cleanup.
Videos for Monster Measurements
As of this writing, there seems to be a lack of content on Large and Mini Gold Crowns for MH Rise. Below is video clips to give some clues on how these monster sizes will look when you encounter them. Monster sizes with 100% chance drop quests will be excluded from this segment.
Kiranico has an excellent large monster guide which also displays the recommended quest to participate in with corresponding crown percentages.
Anomaly Investigation quest monsters have fixed sizes and will never yield any crowns. The normal Anomaly Quests will share the same 6% small and 10% large crown chance as the MR quests.

Sunbreak Crowns
There are only 16 additional monsters tied up to the crown trophies for Sunbreak which are the monsters that were available at the original release of the game. You will need these 16 monsters along with all the base game crowns for the 🏆 Miniature Crown Shield and 🏆 Gold Crown Shield to unlock. Refer to the Gold Crown Shield segment of Powerpyx's guide for the full list.
Astalos Large Gold Crown
Aurora Somnacanth Mini Gold Crown
Gore Magala Large Gold Crown
Malzeno Large Gold Crown
Pyre Rakna-Kadaki Large Gold Crown
Scorned Magnamalo Large Gold Crown
Miscellaneous Grind
🏆 Antique Bookmark
Achieved by collecting all 60 Relics scattered over the 5 available maps. Powerpyx's guide for all Relic Locations shows these well. There is a correction to the linked article however, as it is mentioned there that the Rampage Relics unlock after collecting all 10 other Relics per map but is incorrect (unsure what triggers rampage Relic availability but I had access to them at 5 star quest availability on Village and Hub quests). To track the relics you have collected already, go to OPT -> Info -> Hunter Notes -> Notebook.
Other Useful Information
Affinity vs Raw Damage is discussed well on this steamcommunity forum.
The difference between KO/Stun and Trip is explained will in this article. Note that KO and Stun status are the same (in game and articles call it one or the other so this can be confusing) but Trip status is different.
Critical Boost at level 1 raises damage dealt by critical hits by 5%. Your critical hits are already at a base amplified damage of 25% (not mentioned in-game). This could be deceiving due to the in-game skill definition.
Palamutes and Palicos you bring on the hunt increase your ease and efficiency and are best slotted with the best gear for your playstyle. Game8 has an excellent buddy guide that discusses end game builds.
Use the Basic behavior if you are running a melee focused buddy and Follow if you are using a ranged buddy. This is discussed thoroughly by CheaterMcCheat.
On solo hunts, don't let the common combo of 1 Palico and 1 Palamute mold you to run with that as there are several builds that utilize 2 Palicos or 2 Palamutes in one hunt. For example, you may want to use a double Palamute with C Jelly Travel Bag X weapon on the Best Equipment For Sunbreak (Ranged)segment. Accompanied with the Palamute Silkbinder, this build can provide excellent monster control.
Ordering Motley Mixes in the canteen nets you dango tickets as a reward. Claim it from the chef after some orders and use the tickets with hopping skewers on your harder hunts.
Latent Power skill is triggered by an internal timer upon monster encounter and attack animations and is explained here on Fextralife's wiki.
Auto-shoutouts are useful for your party and even yourself. You can program these auto shoutouts via OPT -> Multiplayer -> Chat Menu -> Triangle and click on the field under Text to program what you want to shout-out, choose the box under speech timing to choose the condition. These conditions aren't fixed and you have more to choose from. The most useful ones are the auto shoutouts for "When you set a trap" and "When a monster is limping" where the monster enters the blue icon state and is capturable if it is not an elder, apex or afflicted monster.
Light Bowgun
Light Bowgun Basic Moves and Ammo Types credit to Phemeto
Pay attention to the color of your reticle. An orange reticle tells you that your ammo type is in its ideal range and will deal its intended damage. A yellow reticle means your shots will hit, but will be significantly weaker.
The Fanning Vault Silkbind skill is best used with your Wyvernblast special ammo. Press circle while you are directly under the monster to plant a bomb directly on it. You will be replacing this with the Switch Skill Fanning Maneuver for end game builds.
Ammo Details can be found by going to Items and Equipment (opt button) -> Equipment Info -> Ammo Details (square)
You will normally run out of your full magazine of your most desired ammo. To minimize returning to camp, bring the materials you need to craft that ammo and set it on your radial menu. Also, avoid bringing the ammo type you never use to keep your ammo menu as decluttered as possible for efficient ammo switching. It is encouraged to bind the ammo you use and their craft commands in your radial menu as well.
Recoil is the delay between firing shots (different from Reload delay). Lower recoil = Faster Attack Speed
Deviation is the drift of the bullets when you fire. If you have a weapon with deviation, it will travel center for a medium distance then swerve to the L or R depending on the strength of the deviation. Targeting "No deviation" is ideal.
Decorations can be crafted to reduce Reload, Recoil and Deviation.
Light Bowgun Weapon & Armor Skills
Bombardier skill does not work with any ammos, including sticky, cluster, or wyvernblast.
Normal/Rapid Up skill improves Normal Ammo damage by 5%/10%/20% and stacks with the skill
Rapid Fire Up which enhances rapid fire damage also by 5%/10%/20%
Great Sword
Recommended Switch Skills are Tackle, Rage Slash (RS), and Adamant Charged Slash (ACS). All three can tank monster attacks (no knockbacks) and negates roar effects. Tackle is the bread and butter during roars and quick monster attacks since its easy to trigger, You can use Adamant Charged Slash for positioning, and Rage Slash to land your last charged attack on your desired direction, which True Charged Slash Skill cant do.
How to Unlock:
Adamant Charged Slash - Unlocked by crafting/upgrading 8 different Greatswords, no duplicates. Replaces the Hunting Edge skill.
Rage Slash - Unlocked by completing the quest "Grasp the Greatsword" (HR5 Quest). Replaces the True Charged Slash skill.
Low Rank Entry GS - Crit Eye Build
Low Rank GS - Crit Draw Build - 80% Affinity on Overhead and Charged Slash
High Rank GS Build - 90% Affinity on Weakpoints + Focus 3

2023.06.09 09:30 Karraylove F 27 and M 28 who has higher temper issues

My M28 partner got anger issues. A little context about us: I am a full-time nursing student, and my partner is a full-time resident at the hospital. We moved in together two years ago due to his placement of residency. He is a full-time employer at a well-known hospital and pays all the bills. I do not pay the bill since I am in the 2-year nursing accelerated program. I will be graduating close to December. My Asian parents noticed my partner had hair horns sticking out, aka in our culture. He had a stubborn and mean attitude. Those who are Asian know what I am talking about 🥺 One piece of advice was that I must be careful of his anger. I have been with him for 3 years, and his anger issues get worst each time we fight over small trivial stuff. He says the meanest stuff to me, like calling bitch, stupid, asshole, etc. He likes to degrade my worth. His biggest pet peeve is being ignored. My partner thinks he is all that because he is a resident doctor from a well prestigious hospital and a middle-class family. If he want 50k from his parents, he got it. He is pretty spoiled. If he wants something, his parent gives it to him right away. I came from a low-class family where every money we got to save it. For example, he likes to put a door stopper in our apartment because the maintenance guys have our keys. He has a particular way of putting it on, like kicking it till there is a mark on the doorknob. He asked me to put it on, and I did not do it right. Immediately he scolded me for being dumb and stupid for not knowing how to put a doorstopper on. This occurred several times when he thought I was a modified idiot. Second example is when I'm studying for my med surg quizzes, and he likes to ask me questions about where I put the pulse ox finger machine. Random stuff like that. I said I do not remember, and you can find it yourself. He got angry at me, saying how I am so dumb and that is why he cannot trust me with things because I forget where I put them. He gave the whole lecture on you should know where you put the stuff otherwise, how can you provide good treatment to patients? The third example, this past month, my boyfriend wants to visit his brother's friends to drink at someone's house. I told my bf that let me take your car so I can pick you up later. He said no, why should you take the car ? My bf got drunk by 2am cannot drive at all. I had to tell my mom to drop me off at my bf friend's house so I could take us home. I went home, and he yelled at me, saying how I didn't trust him and his friends. I told him that you will never find anyone like me who will pick up someone at 2am after drinking. He scolded me, saying, " if you go back to your mom's house right now, find someone else. I will not show a tear for you or ask you to come back to my place. I am a full fledge doctor, and I could find someone easily. This broke my heart 🥹I went on the verge of crying, and he did not say sorry. Today recently, I have been collecting a lot of the new groceries bag because I can use it store my foods. I filled the cabinet with them, and the bag came rushing out when my bf opened it. He immediately took them out and said that need to be gone. This is my home and my rules. It is my say to keep it or not. I pay all the bills, and you need to listen to me. If you ever pissed me bf, he expects ten times worst for you than him. When I get pissed, I never want the worst for someone. Every time we talk about buying a house when I graduate and how he wants to marry me. All these feelings are dull moments because I feel he does not love me, nor is he considerate of my feelings when things go south. When he is happy, things are rosy. Promises will become empty when he is mad. I feel like he treats his resident coworkers with respect. If they cry or need help, he is always there. I need advice 🥺 this is my first relationship

Updating this with some edits as a fair few slots have been taken now...

It's obviously a hard time financially for everyone-
So I've been helping out comic fans, so they can get a bit of luxury and indulgence they might not be able to stretch to otherwise...
If you like original comic-style art, or know somebody who does that you want to spoil, or if you just want to flip some art as it's one of the few things to almost always appreciate:
If you have Marvel Legends figures you wanna offload because they no longer fit your collection, or you've changed them out for another version of the character, or you're getting out completely- And you'd just prefer something created specifically, exclusively for you:
I'll do you a commission in return for what I need.
Professional, exclusive art, as cheap as it gets!
I'm looking to fill some gaps and offer some bargain work at the same time- So you help me, I help you! You offload what you don't want, I devote time and skill to you with something that's usually pretty unaffordable.
You've already paid for the figures you don't need, you'll have seen you're unlikely to make your costs back in a flooded secondary marketplace anymore; so now you can trade up and get original art instead but without paying original art prices or anything other than postage!
You pay the postage (figure to me, art to you), but your art is entirely paid for with toys you just don't want or need anymore.
So we're both protected, as a trade: The safest way to do this is always via PayPal 'goods and services'. We each pay the other the value of the deal (so the payments immediately cancel out each other), but we're both fully covered by PayPal if anything goes wrong then. No deal is guaranteed to be completely hassle-free, but this is at least risk-free and fully protected.
I post art fully tracked, so you'll always have confirmation and a method to follow it.
The figure you're trading doesn't need to be boxed at all, I don't collect 'in box', anyway (so postage is much, much cheaper) - Just need it complete, in good condition without defects/flaws, and with all it's accessories (excluding BAF pieces- don't need them).
I'll do you any comics character you like (just not movie/live-action depictions- likenesses take a lot longer so cost a lot more).
There are five options, all for much, much less than would ever be offered otherwise, with the lowest tiers at incredible deals.
Tier one:
Any one figure from list A
= 1 x A5 bust (head, shoulders, some upper chest), black and white, no background detail
Tier two:
Any two figures from list A
= 1 x A4 half body (waist up), black and white, no background detail
Tier three:
Any three figures from list A or any one figure from list B
= 1 x A4 full body, black and white, no background detail
Tier four:
Any five figures from list A or any two figures from list B
= 1 x A4 full body, grey scale, basic background
Tier five:
Any seven figures from list A or any three figures from list B
= 1 x A4 full body, colour washes, standard background

Obviously a lot of these have already been surpassed or superseded by later, better releases, and a few of them will be this year, too (according to the 'leak list' that's so far proven entirely accurate)- So obviously the value of lots of these is permanently dropping: I don't care, they still work for my collection, so my offers stand. Happy to take them off your hands, whether you're downsizing, eliminating unnecessary duplicates, changing up brands, or getting out of the game altogether.
This is a novelty option to turn your unwanted old stuff into a real, personal luxury.
This time I'm just concentrating on comic book figures- in future I'll offer a similar deal for MCU based figures (and, potentially, Black Series figures).
Hope this is multi-beneficial! Feel free to message me and we'll help each other out.
(If you don't know my work, you can see some via my profile here and some on my other socials, which are click-able from here.)

2023.06.09 09:26 genome_walker Future of Himachal after Agnipath scheme

For few days I have thinking about the effect of agnipath scheme on Himachal Pradesh's economy. I have contemplated that it would negatively affect economies of non-apple growing districts like Una, Kangra, Hamirpur, Chamba, etc.
People from this district must be familiar with the number of people who join armed forces from our villages, by per capita basis Himachal is the largest provider of manpower in Indian Army. Our villages are also inhabited by significant retirees who receive pension and important for rural economy (more on this later). Also, there is very little urbanization in Himachal with only 10% of the population living in urban areas. So, apart from government jobs and Army there very few opportunities for our youth to pursue careers.
About retirees and pension, think of number of houses or shops being constructed by ex-servicemen. These employ number labourers, carpenters, etc. Indirectly they are being supported by ex-servicemen's pension.
Now comes agnipath, what happens now is that not only number of soldiers serving in Army gets reduced but also pensioners who were a significant part of the rural economy. Prior to Agnipath scheme, each state had a fixed quota of number of soldiers being recruited from there. But Agnipath scheme will recruit on All India basis, so the number of soldiers being recruited from Himachal may get reduced even further. This would create lack of cash in rural areas, especially in regions where there is no industry. We could end up becoming like Uttarakhand, where is mass emigration from villages to cities in search of economic opportunities, leading to abandonment of entire villages which are called ghost villages. The phenomenon I have mentioned will take at least 10-15 years to be noticeable and by then it would be too late.
Whether I am wrong or right, only time will tell. But I believe not enough people in Himachal are paying attention to how Agnipath scheme will roll out and there is a need to discuss this topic. I would like to hear thoughts of people on this sub on this issue, how far or closer I am to the ground realities.

2023.06.09 09:23 YllowKdWeil I have to admit something.

After some thinking, I've come to the conclusion that I was wrong. At least, for what I want in life anyway.
This is in regards to the rent vs buy argument. I'll preface this by saying it's not for those who can't afford to buy, it's for those who can afford but are choosing not to & to invest instead.
For a while, I was a strong advocate and practitioner of the lifestyle. But I couldn't help accept that it's just too risky of a bet.
The arguments many use...
"If you punch the numbers in a spreadsheet with annual rent increases of 3% & invest with a 7% return vs homeownership cost on X mortgage @ Y% rate and other expenses, it's cheaper!"
Who here is having fun in the current rental market? How many of the 100,000+ homeless would like stable living? Or, here's an exercise, go on and have a look at the people 45+ on there who are looking for a room in a share house with other randoms.
That's what happens when you lose the bet (choosing to rent instead of buy). You end up as either of those people if it goes south.
"But there's so many hidden costs! A roof could bust, pipes could burst, heater shit itself, it's never ending!"
Is the cost not better than the alternative though? Would you rather be complaining about that or complaining that you've been evicted and can't find anywhere to live?
As we've seen, rents have skyrocketed and more and more are without shelter. Choosing to rent is really giving up any sort of control and putting your faith at the whims of a landlord and the current market.
Bad health? Would you rather be on disability without a mortgage or on disability while still trying to cover rent?
"But my investments will cover it!" Will they? There's many other emergencies and/or curve balls in life that don't involve a house deteriorating. In 2020 I genuinely thought my job was secure, I lost that, got evicted from a crazy house share and suffered a brutal injury resulting in tens of thousands of dollars in rehab. Having the added stress of finding an emergency house just wasn't worth any spreadsheet calculation.
I also know people whos "emergency fund" wouldn't cover them if an actual emergency slapped them in the face but that's another argument.
Sometimes taking a money L can be a real-life W.
"But I don't want debt!" Put it this way, unless you plan to be homeless, you're always going to be in debt to someone for shelter. The mortgage holder just has the pain of seeing that debt in their account but they can dictate how quickly it evaporates. Go calculate 60 years of rent with a 3% increase each year, find that figure and imagine that in your bank because that's what your debt is. Your investments may cover it, but you still owe it.
The thing is, even if you can't control houses deteriorating and needing to pay them, you can at least control the most IMPORTANT things with housing.
  1. You choose what you pay. There's no need to live a lavish life. Live modestly and within your means. You have full control over what you agree to pay. The renter doesn't.
  2. You control how much interest you pay. "No you don't! Banks raise rates!". Yes they do, but if you buy modestly, put everything and the kitchen sink into the offset, find more work, having a partnehousemate(s) help slam off the mortgage, you eventually can save bucket loads in interest payments by clearing the mortgage a decade or two earlier. With renting you pay that forever.
  3. You can end up with more. Let's say you bowl it over in 20 years, that's 10 years of no mortgage and interest payments that you can now add to what you're already investing. The renter can still invest, but only after the landlord gets his piece of the pie.
Regardless of what your thoughts may be of Australia, one thing is for certain, if you just follow the two most treaded investment paths, regardless how bad you fuck up in life, you'll still win.
• Pay off a house & max out Super. That's it. •
"But people blow money on dumb renovations!" Who cares? Let them. So long as that house is paid off and super has been maxed out for most of their lives, they're golden. Let them enjoy.
Remember, two things:
• House
• Super
Any other investments you amassed over your life is extra.
Why gamble on the house and/or super being there or not? It makes zero sense. The system is set up so you can't lose.
And I haven't even mentioned putting god damn hooks on walls for paintings.

2023.06.09 08:55 lalaaaaland Emotionally Abusive Boss

I’ve started at this job for a year and a half now, and my mental health has been steadily worsening. My boss, I think, is a narcissistic abuser. She either loves or hates my work and thereby either loves or hates me personally. She’s very emotionally and verbally abusive towards me and other coworkers, especially the outsourced ones as she does not treat people within her region this way. It ranges from micro aggressions such as asking me “are you feeling uninspired” or telling me my work is horrible in front of everybody. I used to be a very confident contributor in meetings, and because of the way that she treats me has been gradually getting to me, I’ve been a lot more quiet, and she’ll call me out in meetings and say, “do I pay you to sit here quietly? aren’t you supposed to be the creative in this company?” I feel very powerless and it’s very difficult to talk back to her especially since she could fire me at any moment. This is an online job and there is no contract. She has yelled at me on multiple occasions, and I have tried to set a boundary after sending her paragraphs about how her behavior is very difficult for me to excuse and that I’m trying my best and that constructive criticism would be more helpful than telling me that my work is shit, yelling at me, and closing zoom calls while I’m mid-sentence. She would gaslight me and say no I never yelled at you or no I’ve never said that to you, and then apologize anyways, very insincerely. She also changes her mind on things she herself approved of, and will say “i’m not crazy!” When I remind her she liked the same graphic just a week ago. Recently she made me cry (not the first time) and then said I can’t deal with this and closed the call on my face, and then acted like nothing happened after. Whenever I’d work from a coffeeshop she’d accuse me of “partying” and “prioritizing my social life over work” and to just quit so she can find someone else, because she can “replace” me in a second. She reminds me of that often. Sometimes she’ll make subtly racist comments about my curly hair. I wanted to quit so many times, but work in my region pays so little in comparison, and I keep getting rejection letters. I got offered a much more relaxed job that pays half my salary, and I don’t know if I should just take it. Would like some advice on how to set boundaries please, I’ve been going to therapy for months because of the anxiety and depression my boss has caused me, and I get sick so often because of stress. Should I just set boundaries? Should I quit and just rest for a bit? Should I hold on til I find a job that could match my salary?

2023.06.09 08:48 user473918153 Miguel O’Hara is the Prowler

I just rewatched Across the Spider-verse, and I had a few theories going into the movie that I wanted to kinda delve deeper into. After finishing it and paying close attention to some of the more subtle details, I am about 99% sure that Miguel O’Hara is the prowler of his universe. There are multiple reasons.
  1. The first shot we see of Miguel is him injecting himself with some spider-like liquid. It shows small mechanical spiders going into him and latching onto his blood cells. Just from this, we can conclude that he isn’t a natural Spider-Man.
  2. Just like the prowler, 2099’s entire suit is based around technology. Miles is able to zap him because he can take the electricity in his suit and redirect it towards him. He also doesn’t have normal webs like everyone else, he has red laser webs. Also he has a cape which is weird.
  3. Multiple characters in the movie mention the fact that he has claws, which isn’t normal for a Spider-Man. It’s his main form of combat, with webs being more of a convenient method of travel. On the sky train scene while chasing miles, he claws his way up the train almost exactly like prowler would in the first movie, completely ignoring his web shooters.
  4. 2099 has the exact same scars/ lines on his face as prowler-miles does. They’re the only characters in the whole movie to have scars like this, and they’re in almost the exact same position.
  5. Prowlers theme song and Spider-Man 2099’s theme song are the exact same sound, just pitched differently. It almost sounds like the noise an elephant makes, but it’s pitched differently for the two characters. If you reverse either one, it sounds very similar to the other one. Every other character has a completely unique theme sound that doesn’t sound like anyone else’s. This seems insignificant, but the producers of this movie make very intentional choices for small things like this.
  6. The red design on 2099’s suit is the exact same design as the eyes of Uncle Aaron’s prowler mask. Look at it yourself, it’s a very similar shape but 2099 wears it on his shoulders and chest. The way it hooks around at the top of prowlers eyes is exactly like 2099’s does on his shoulders. They’re not picture perfect but I think it’s too similar to be a coincidence.
It also makes a lot of sense for the storyline. Miguel’s backstory (that he explained to miles) is that he lost his family and tried to take over the life of another universes Spider-Man that died, but that lead to the destruction of that universe. We don’t have any backstory for how he became Spider-Man in the first place. My theory is that he was the Prowler of his universe and tried to become the Spider-Man of another’s, using his understanding of technology to basically give himself Spider-Man’s powers. The setup at the end of the movie with prowler-miles is exactly that, where he’s going to try to take over spider-miles life in his universe because his father is alive. I bet my brother $100 on this, so what do y’all think?

So I recently discovered that I'm pan a few months ago and came out to a few of my friends, it's the first pride month so far where I've actually known and so I (along with my friend) hopped into discord, booted up valorant to play, and put the pride banners on. I put the pan banner on and she put the rainbow banner and changed her title to 'ally'. We matched into a game and this dude was like "hi everyone" and from the start my friend was like "this dude sounds like he's gonna be toxic-" cause he just had one of those voices (sounds rude but it was just cause we've been told by a lot of people that sound like him to kll ourselves for missing a shot or not reviving them) and not even 5 minutes later we load into the game and instantly he goes on voice
Jett (vc): Hey KJ, gekko, I have a question for you
Me (text): what is it
Jett (vc): So the pride flags, are you guys like into that kinda thing or?
Me (text): Uh yeah haha- I am
my friend(text): it's for pride month, I'm supporting
Jett(vc): Why though? Its cringy as h-ll
Chamber(vc): bro wdym?
Jett(vc): I just don't understand how someone can have that and not laugh everytime they see it, its f*cking stupid
the chamber told him to leave us alone and everything, after that the Jett said something but the round was about to start so I stopped paying attention and focused more on making sure I could aim correctly and everything, right after the round started he asked in all chat if they supported pride month and almost all of them responded and all of those were yeah, he then went "ew" and went silent for a bit. A round later he starts again "I just don't understand how you can wake up and be like 'hmm i want it up the @ ss from a man today' its disgusting" ofc nobody responded and he went silent until the last rounds. I killed someone after they killed the jett because I was near and didn't wanna die and he went "Good job (F slur)" my friend of course wasn't having it and went to report him which lead to her in the 2nd to last round getting AFK'd for not moving. I also went to report him after I died because thats not ok- While I was reporting he started talking
Jett(vc): Where'd your boyfriend go (f slur)? He's afk, he left you. (apparently he thought since she was gekko and I was constantly following her that meant that she was a guy and dating me apparently-)
I was reporting and since I was typing I hit my push to talk key a time or two, I wasn't talking so it was just silence but that fueled the reyna who had previously been silent the whole game
Reyna(vc): The (f slur)'s not saying anything, too scared to f*cking talk (f slur)?
Jett(vc): She's pushing her f*cking voice key
Reyna(vc): Ireneplayz with a z, she thinks shes f*cking cool and different with that.
He then proceeded to just repeat the f slur over and over at least like 7 times
Reyna(vc): Go ahead and f*cking report me (f slur), I don't care. This is an alt anyway.
My friend didn't care and reported him anyway, I continued playing and just tried to ignore it since we were on the last round. There was only one person left and the jett was missing all his shots and I came from behind and killed the person winning the game for us and also saving him. And what does he say? He says the F slur one more time and goes "u trash" in the chat. That last part I don't really care about since it was just normal valorant talk but the constant harassment through the whole game just because of my banner kinda got to me- I wish it didn't and I want to not let stuff like that affect me but it does. Valorant did take action against it seeing as it popped up saying one of them got a punishment/penalty for it so thats good. But what is with all the homophobic people in valorant?? I've already had to deal with annoying men on valorant seeing my user and starting to try and flirt and if I say anything about it or try and get them to stop its instantly turned to "F*ck you Irene." and thats just how it works but for some reason this just felt more personal-

2023.06.09 08:32 Lostmybanjo Self Proprietorship Questions -Washington State

I'm looking to get a self proprietorship started here in Washington State. This will be a photography/ digital media business. I am a beginner only, so to start, I would certainly not be making more than $3k/year, and that's MAXIMUM. It's more likely that I'll be making $600/year, as I'll be doing a lot of free shoots to get experience and in a lot of situations, just helping people out. As far as taxes go, what should I know?
  1. What kind of things can I write off, and how? (Related gear such as laptops, cameras and accessories, workshops, mileage/gas, software?)
  2. I understand I have to pay my sales tax quarterly, but is this sales tax for when a client pays me, and is it the sales tax im charging them?
  3. What's my limit for write offs? (How many miles, how much gear). And do I submit receipts quarterly as well?
  4. How does this all work? Is it worth it?
  5. What percentage of my write off $$ do I get back?
I can't find a tax professional near me, and I'm not even sure how to find one. So I'm hoping you all can help me with anything at all.
Thank you so much for taking your time to help. I'm just trying to make some passive income to survive.

2023.06.09 08:27 NRKei Goldman-Sachs Couldn't SECURE My Apple Savings funds to pay my Apple Card. Not their problem!!??

A week ago, I was trying to pay my Goldman-Sachs-based Apple Card with my Goldman-Sachs-based Apple Savings. No option for that. But there were two options: Transfer to Apple Cash, and transfer to my personal bank. Since I have paid in the past with Apple Cash, I tried that transfer. Declined! Tried again. Declined! So, I transferred money to my personal bank account, waited the obligatory three days, and paid my Apple Card that way. I found it ironic that in order to pay a Goldman-Sachs credit card from a Goldman-Sachs savings account, I had to use an intermediary bank. [Footnote: I have built banking software for firms in three different countries; this should not be necessary.]
Then a few days ago, I get an email from Apple Savings / Goldman Sachs asking me to contact them. There are two links: use of iMessage, and a toll-free number. I am working in Jordan at the moment, so I use iMessage. After a five-minute text conversation, the representative says she can't help, I need to call. Is it urgent? She can't say. Is there a subject? She can't say. I ask them to call me. I get a call a day later.
At 1 AM my local time, I get a call. It is about the declining of the transfer. The reason given several times: "The System" "could not secure the funds." Did they lose them? I have $25,000+ in the account for over a month and was transferring less than $3000. I ask what does "secure the funds" means. It's "The System". It "couldn't secure the funds". The final advice for the future: "Transfer funds to your personal bank." Isn't "The System" a Goldman-Sachs system? Isn't this a Goldman-Sachs representative? Are they trying to blame something else? No responsibility for the problem; no apologies for the issue; no acknowledgement that something may need to be fixed.
For Apple which has created a stunning Apple Vision Pro, this seems like something that should be remedied.

2023.06.09 08:14 Polarbear3838 Last day-How should I quit

Leaving because while there's decent money to make in my zone, it's easy to tell its dying. Leaving before it does and there's plenty of more fulfilling and more fun jobs out there that will pay around the same. So I am just curious, how should I leave? I don't care about deactivation obviously. Thinking about messing with particularly ridiculous no tip orders as we have a few orders each day that never get accepted because the pay never gets good even with max surge.
So for those orders should I leave their groceries at the curb, should I put a watermelon on their roof? Substitute their 40 packs for a single bottle of Dasani? Looking for something mostly harmless but annoying. Something yall have always wanted to do to a mean regular or a ridiculous order, cause I get both very often.
I'm sure this post will get hate from the ones who love to defend the low paying orders by saying we're independent contractors and therefore choose our pay as if we're anywhere close to a real IC and not just in a vague legal greyspace that is preyed upon by gigwork. But for those who would enjoy a little "minimum pay, minimum effort" type revenge for a day, let's hear what yall have always wanted to do.

Hey all,
I just got back from my 3 week trip to Korea, spending 2.5 weeks in Seoul (due to getting surgery) and 4 nights in Busan. I thought I'd share some of my experiences and thoughts here since some of the recent information I got from this subreddit was not true when I went to Korea.

2023.06.09 08:00 dogandcats424242 Had to move in with ex husband for two months and the situation is hell, need support

I’m a non-trad college student in my early 40’s. I split with my ex husband a year ago after I had moved 200 miles away two years ago for university. (Both he and I had gone back to community college during the pandemic and I transferred to a university in 2021). It is stressful at my school but I was able to finally have the freedom that I never was allowed to have. We were married nearly 20 years. While being married to him, he never allowed me to have friends or barely even wanted me to go outside (for my safety) and I was not allowed to work much when I was with him, had to wait on him and do all of the cooking and chores. At college, I got used to making my own decisions and I was adjusting. We had an amicable divorce and stayed friends.
My ex graduated from his CC this spring. Now he got accepted as a transfer to a university about 15 miles away from my university so now he intends upon moving up close to my campus. I live in dorms at my school during the regular year and prefer it that way. He plans on moving into the housing at his own school. He had kept living in our apartment (my name is on the lease) the two years I was gone. He was babysitting my cats and my belongings. Now that he is moving for school I am ending the lease.
I couldn’t work during the spring semester due to having too many units and a slew of health problems that kept cropping up. I ran out of money, couldn’t afford summer housing this year. He offered to have me come stay with him all summer (me sleeping in the bed and him on the couch), so that way I could throw out the remaining belongings I didn’t want, pack up the apartment and end the lease, give the cats to family and clean the apartment to turn over to the landlord to get my large deposit back (I had paid it all). Since we were getting along so well over text I thought he had changed.
I came back to a filthy, hoarder style, trashed apartment. He literally hasn’t cleaned in two years. The odor of cat pee is everywhere. Caked on dirt on the floors. Damaged, smashed broken appliances. A disgusting filthy bathroom and kitchen. Smashed dishes and glassware that he didn’t pick up. Stacks upon stacks of paper, stuff he bought from thrift stores, junk, old clothes, stacks of mail and trash and the apartment is now infested with roaches and spiders. It’s bad. I’ve been here about two weeks and have been filling up trash bag after trash bag. I can’t afford a cleaning service to help me and I’m disgusted but can’t afford to stay anyplace else until august. I’m not allowed to hire a dumpster from the city to fill up (landlord said no). I’m having to clean at a snails pace. No he won’t clean. The most he’ll do is take the trash bags downstairs, or go get take out food, and pays the rent.
He’s also back to his controlling ways, begs me to cook for him (I refuse), insists that we are getting back together when he moves up near me, started wearing his wedding ring again, constantly talks at me in a never ending commentary on everything, spouting his opinions and just sounds ignorant. I stay silent and he talks constantly. He does work full time so luckily he’s gone all day so I just have to deal with him in the evenings. He knows I’m seeing someone else (the beginning stages) and tells me I’m not allowed to talk about the other guy nor text him, nor talk about my college or studies because he’s not interested in hearing about it. I’m not worried about him getting violent nor trying to sleep with me (he stopped wanting any sex about 5 years ago and he had expected me to be content with a sexless marriage).
I just need some support because I need to stay here a couple more months in this situation so I can get my deposit back (I need that money).

2023.06.09 07:56 EmployPuzzleheaded69 Resentment is causing my love to deteriorate me (19m) boyfriend (19m)

Tldr; my boyfriend has been acting up causing me to have resentment towards him, he's changing for me but very slowly, I don't know if I should keep giving everything I have for someone that currently isn't doing the same for me
So me (19m) and my boyfriend (19) have been dating for close to four months now. It started very quickly and I fell for him quite hard, whether it was love or lust I do not know. But I was happy either way. To see him when I could, text him, call him etc. But the more time I spend with him the more he just rubs me the wrong way, his whiny attitude, lots of complaining, and just general miserable attitude really grates away at my smily, very happy, energetic mood. And it's like I keep running into roadblocks with him. I used to have to beg for attention (I still do sometimes) he said he would try to do better. And well he did! For a week, and then it went back to just a couple messages a day, usually I would have to initiate. I have talked calmly with him about a lot of problems I've been having with him, and his latest answer is. I'm sorry but that's just how life is. He acts legitimately like a brat a lot of the time. And it feels very one sided even though he says very sweet things to me. I always have to drive to him (about 35 minutes), we always do what he wants to do (when he doesn't say idk (God, I've come to hate hearing those words, it's triggering)) and he will say for me to choose something like food, place to hangout, things to do. But then will complain about my choice and always really has something in mind and will throw a fit about if I don't decide to do that. He expects me to pay for everything, except this time when he payed for me but then said he can't really do that anymore. And I can understand financial struggle, but he is fully supported by parents/grandparents and told me the only thing he has to pay for is college (about $2k) gas, and food. Like... He doesn't have bills like I do, he doesn't have the costs to go see him like I do. And I try very hard not to hold this against him because when you can't afford something, there's not much you can do. HE HAS A JOB, granted he works part time but otherwise he does nothing else. He doesn't spend time with friends, he isn't coming to see me (he says he can't because it's not his car, it's not and I understand (kind of)) and when I do come and see him it's basically "where do you want to go" then we decide, go there (he likes to choose the crazy out of my way places to eat. Places that are 30+ minutes away, and doesn't want to pay for gas to go there, but that drive just eats away at the small amount of time we have together) and then I take him back to his car for him to drive home. He doesn't do pda at all, he is not comfortable with it, and I can't not do pda. I want to show him and myself off, I love being me and spending time with him and showing that I'm happy. But he is petrified of the public gaze, afraid of hate crime, being SPOKEN to. It's sooo..... Frustrating. He's totally fine in private but when it comes to being in public, even when nobody is around. He just locks up and smacks my hand away from his. He just doesn't know how to act in general, like he wasn't taught well or something. He isn't telling his family about me. He's told me it is because he's not ready yet, but I think of it was up to him he would go until we got married to tell anyone. And don't get me wrong he has a lot of amazing things going for him and about him, I'm just not listing them here. As I'm looking for help with the issues. He has slowly started to get better but it's just going to be such a long journey at this pace I'm afraid I might decide I can't love him by the time he is done. And that would be the cruelest thing I could think someone to do. Ask for change and when change has occured, to leave. I really did/do love him and I want things to get better. But... I just don't know what to do. It's almost hurting me to deal with his... Whole person. I've talked to him, talked with friends, family. They all say (with exception of him) to leave him. But I cannot do that. I have told him everything but this, and I'm afraid if I do, he might not recover from hearing this. And in the future he might always think I don't love him or something like that. I'm unsure. I can answer any questions and am hopeful of advice on my situation (I'd prefer to keep him) How do I keep him and still save myself the mental anguish of dealing with the change?
Here I'm going to add stuff I don't feel like searching and finding the right place for in my book of a post
I know im his world and it would crush him if I left.
He can't call me once he gets home from work because his family is supposedly nosey and he neither wants to lie or tell them about me
He intentionally acts in a way he knows I don't like when he doesn't get his way (he told me so) which is almost seldom.
I try and make him as happy as possible but it might all be for not.
It seems like I consider him more than he does me, when it comes to gifts, cute/motivating messages throughout the day
I'm quite sure I'm close to being a perfect boyfriend for him but he just doesn't match my energy that I put into us, and I don't know why.
I don't mean to sound arrogant but I know I'm attractive, I've modeled for young men's underwear. And am just generally healthy/fit so it's not an attraction thing, he approached me and wanted me first
I'm educated (even if I don't prove so in my grammatical and punctual fashion in the post) and somewhat well off

2023.06.09 07:55 aliceinvegasland42 I Need to Break Up With My Boyfriend, But I'm Dreading Doing It

I would love to make this short, but it's kind of a long story. I know that I need to end things with my boyfriend, but I'm scared that I'm being hasty, and that I can't tell the difference between a rough patch and a breaking point.
I (33F) met my current boyfriend Josh (28M) about 2 1/2 years ago when I was in a polyamorous relationship with my ex-fiance. Josh and I started seeing each other, and when my fiance and I went through our (very messy) breakup, we were still together and through the last couple years, despite a few lapses in our relationship, we just get along really well: we have similar senses of humor, we enjoy a lot of the same media, have many of the same beliefs, even if he is a lot more conservative than I am, and he was brought up very differently. His family is Catholic, big, and very close, and my family is rather small and not really very close.
Last year, we decided that we were going to build a future together, remaining in an open/polyamorous relationship. We have many similar goals, mostly moving to a more rural area, getting land, having tiny houses, and a garden, and maybe some animals. At least that's what we've talked about. However I have a 9-year-old daughter (whose father currently has primary custody because of my living situation, which I will explain, but I go over and spend time with her for the majority of the afternoon 3-4x per week, so we're maintaining okay), and Josh wants to have more kids. It makes me really nervous to have more kids unless I'm able to do it soon, because I'm approaching the age where it gets more complicated to have children. Plus, instead of being 42 when my child graduates and we can move into building her adulthood, I would be into my fifties before my children were moved into adulthood. But he really wants to be a dad so I decided I could have more kids if that was what was right for our relationship. And I love children... my daughter is the best thing that's ever come from me.
I understand that non-monogamy has some controversy surrounding it, but I was determined to make the practice of non-monogamy ethical, and not just cheating. I always told my primary partner, who before was my fiance and now was Josh, when I was interested in someone and what my intentions were, and did my best to provide before and after care. Josh was pretty adamant that he was open to the arrangement from the beginning, and it was sort of a dealbreaker for me not to be open, so I thought we'd come to an agreement.
We eventually made plans to move into an apartment together, so in order to escape the volatile living situation I was in, I decided to move in with my parents for a few months, while we found a place. My parents, I found out later, were very insistent on my move out date of March 1st, but I was certain we could get a place before that. There were also two weeks where my parents would be out of town (around Christmas) so they needed me to stay somewhere else. I was able to stay with Josh, who was also living with his parents, and since they have kind of a full house, we stayed in the living room on an air mattress I bought.
Honestly it was kind of a nightmare - I was never alone, had a new job that was very stressful to learn, had no car and was taking the bus when my job was all the way across town; I wasn't sleeping because we had to wait for everyone to go to bed around 11, and then the first people to wake up were up around 5am, plus he snores really loud and kept me up as well. I was literally spiraling, not getting any sleep and not having anywhere to turn, not being allowed to be dissatisfied because I needed to be grateful that I was allowed to be there in the first place.
During this time, he definitely showed more signs of being dissatisfied of not being exclusive, and usually he hid his jealousy pretty well, but his mask started to fall. We had a huge fight on New Year's, when I was really drunk and don't remember the conversation leading up to it, but it was bad enough that I said it was over and went back to stay with my parents early, before they were back in town. Later I found out that he had said some offensive things about a marginalized group that I care a lot about, and I guess I got so angry that I ended things...but I don't remember what he said. In the aftermath, however, he and his family framed it that he just wasn't okay with polyamory, and it just didn't work out.
Well I was heartbroken and devastated, and after a lot of emotional labor from me, including long apology letters from me to both his family and him (they never responded to me, btw), we ended up getting back together. I agreed to be monogamous and only be with him exclusively, as that was the only way to be together, and I was thinking that I'd rather be mono with him than poly without him.
In that time, I had saved up enough money to get an apartment, but due to a prior eviction was having a hard time getting approved. Since Josh had told me recently since we'd gotten back together that he wouldn't mind us getting an apartment, I asked if he would just be the primary signer on the application, but I would pay for everything until he was ready. And he said he wasn't comfortable with it and it was too soon. Well we were into February now and my parents were requiring me to move out March 1. So I ultimately was not able to get approved for anything and chose temporary housing.
I stayed in an AirBnB after my parents called time for about 6 weeks. I booked it for both Josh and I (thinking he would be grateful for the opportunity not to share a bedroom with his 18 year old brother and would stay with me during that time), but he only came over 5-6 times. And only stayed the night half those times. He does have a relatively physical full-time job, but it's still a normal person's job, and lots of people do it and still maintain relationships. I tried to tell him that I was sad and lonely and needed more attention from him, and he called me "explosive" for it. Part of the reason for me being poly is that I'm just high maintenance and a handful and I need a lot of attention. Not all the time, but I need to not feel cut off from it.
After I couldn't afford to do the AirBnB anymore, I had to choose to move into my car. I sometimes camp in the nearby woods, but a lot of time am urban camping. His younger brotheroommate is often out of the house all night, but he never tells me when that happens. He came camping with me one night too, and it was the first night in a week I could sleep on a mattress, albeit in the tent, but still not in my car, so I was very excited. However he got too cold and invited me to stay in his car with him AND his pit bull, and I was kind of appalled. I said that no, I didn't really want to do that. And he stormed off to his car, repeatedly calling me "mean", which shocked me and rang in my head for a few days. We made up the next day but it was a really awful experience.
Now I see him probably once per week if I'm lucky, and we basically just eat food, watch TV, and lie in his twin bed. This would be fine if we could have great conversations also or connect in any kind of way, but it's nearly impossible to have a conversation about anything that isn't just us joking back and forth. I can't remember the last meaningful conversation we've had; he never asks me about my life other than work, never asks where I'm staying or if I'm safe, doesn't take my struggles with mental health seriously, and just seems to want to only have the fun parts of our relationship and the easy parts of me, while leaving me to deal with me and my own drama all by myself.
This is already so long... I just don't have anyone in my life I can burden with all of this - I try to dole out the frustrations between my mom and my two close friends, but I also understand the social necessity to not just dominate conversation with crises and not to depend on people for advice, so I only really ever talk about this in little bursts, and it's so hard to convey how it feels in such a small amount of time. I just thought he knew that if I was going to go from having multiple partners, which wasn't necessarily something I was looking for actively all the time, I wasn't on dating apps or whatever, but if I met someone at an event or at work or even a bar, I don't cut myself off from a possible connection. I wasn't just sleeping around with a bunch of people, it was usually one person for a few months or so and was like a brief encounter.
Having those other partners also obscured the differences between Josh and I, and the things that he wasn't really able to/interested in doing with me, like having certain deep kinds of conversations that weren't just jokes, and exploring new interests... this all really hit me when I realized two very specific things:
  1. I was thinking about us having children and realized that he values his career right now more than he wants to spend time with me, so if we have children, he will expect me to put everything on hold to solely take care of the children so that he didn't have to take any kind of break from work. I think this would be applicable even if I made more money than he does (which I currently do, but only by a little, and I have far more expenses)
  2. I went rock climbing with one of my close friends, and, I don't want to sound mean, but Josh is a big guy. I've always thought of him as just being husky or whatever, and never really saw any limitations to his physicality, but lately his eating and weight have gone a little overboard, when we are intimate he needs me to be on top or we have sometimes-awkward, sometimes-great spoon intercourse. While I was climbing on the structures with my friend (we'll call him Sheldon), which was indoors and had an automatic rope that let you down from the top, I realized that Josh probably couldn't take part in the activity, either because he would be physically incapable of getting close enough to the wall to grip or it would be too much of a burden to carry his weight... and I don't know what the maximum weight on the automatic ropes are, but I can't imagine they can rappel that much weight like that. It also made me realize he's not really into trying new things or self-improvement or anything like that.
I need courage to end this, because he's been my best friend for awhile, and I really don't want to hurt him. I usually feel comfortable around him, and we've been through a lot together. But I'm so tired of hurting and missing him and feeling dismissed that I feel like I need to separate myself so I'm not being disappointed by my consistently unfulfilled needs. And if it were just a little bad, I'd be okay, but I feel so disconnected that I'm developing an "ick" and I feel horrible about that... he is kind of my best friend... but maybe that's where we should lave things.
I'm house sitting for Sheldon right now, because he has two cats and doesn't want them to feel alone, and I don't really have anywhere else to go. So I have a week of refuge and respite and I want to take advantage of getting to take care of myself... but my resentment for the situation, and my burgeoning contempt for him are starting to cloud my ability to function... how do I even do this... I feel guilty but I can't do this anymore.

PM Marape announces start of National Gold Refinery & Mint Project
OCTOBER 29TH 2021 Prime Minister Hon. James Marape says the National Gold Refinery & Mint Project Agreement signed today is a landmark agreement for the country and a major achievement in the implementation of his Government’s ‘Take Back PNG’ policy. PM Marape addressing the media after today’s signing at Government House. He is flanked by Refinery Holdings Managing-Director James Scobie, Chairman Michael Boyd and Mining Minister Hon. Johnson Tuke. “The project starts today and will establish, for the first time in Papua New Guinea, a downstream processing and value-adding industry for gold, one of the country’s mostvaluable natural resource exports,” he said. “The project will put Papua Guinea on the world gold map, so it is rightfully recognised in both gold mining and gold refining industries, and in global precious metals and financial markets, as one of the world’s most-important gold-producing countries.” Treasury Secretary Dairi Vele signs for the State with Refinery Holdings Managing-Director James Scobie and Chairman Michael Boyd at Government House. PM Marape said downstream processing of natural resources in PNG, including gold, forestry and fisheries, is the key to our economic future and employment opportunities for citizens and is a key policy of his government. “This has been talked about for decades, but it is my leadership peers in present Government who are now pushing for this major in-country downstream processing project,” he said. “It is the first of many to come. “Until now, all the economic and social benefits from refining and value-adding to Papua New Guinea’s gold, have been exported to foreign refineries and for the benefit of foreign countries. “The project will ensure that we account for all gold produced in PNG and export out finished products for companies and individuals who are in the gold industry.” PM Marape said for the first time all the profits, taxes, new US dollar foreign exchange inflows, employment and related benefits from the refining of gold and precious metals will stay in PNG. PM Marape and Governor-General Sir Bob Dadae toast to the occasion at Government House today. “For the first time, PNG will be recognised on the world stage, including by international refined gold regulatory bodies, such as the London Bullion Market Association (LBMA),”he said. “PNG will become known and recognised as a producer of international standard: • gold and precious metal investment bullion bars, • gold and precious metal legal tender investment coins; and • other refined gold products. PM Marape said the project will establish four new world-class businesses in the State: • National Gold Refinery – which will refine all of PNG’s gold and precious metals and produce international standard gold and silver bullion bars; • National Mint – to mint our own currency and the new National Bird of Paradise legal tender and investment grade gold and precious metal currency coins; • National Gold Bank – to provide dedicated gold and precious metal banking and trading services to the PNG gold mining industry; and • National Gold – to market PNG gold and precious metals, and our value-added bullion bars, investment coins and other products global investors. “This is a high-end value-adding business and for a gold producing nation, we want to move into this space,” PM Marape said. “No one has dared to dream this dream, but as a Government fighting to earn more from our resources, this low-hanging economic opportunity is now harnessed .” PM Marape said the State is an equal 50:50 joint venture equity partner in the project from commencement where 30 per cent of State Interest will be passed to our local alluvial miners and landowner companies. “The State also has the right to buy majority or total control of the project at a time into the future as defined in the project agreement with Refinery Holdings who are partners in this project,” he said. “Refinery Holdings will be the project manager, operator and financier of the project until the State decides to buy control.” PM Marape said the National Gold Corporation will pay full corporate taxes (currently 30 per cent) on its profits from commencement. “Refinery Holdings will pay full dividend withholding tax on its dividends received from National Gold Corporation, “ he said. “The project will generate substantial new dividends and corporate taxes paid to the State – currently projected at approximately US$800 million over the first 15 years of operation.” PM Marape said there would be many jobs and opportunities created by the project. “Up to 200 new jobs will be created during the construction phase of the refining and minting facilities on land leased within the LNG and Petroleum Park, and at Jackson International Airport,” he said. “There will be up 350 new tertiary level jobs in the operational phase and there will be significant training and skills transfer to local employees for decades to come. “And there will be the creation of many local ancillary industries, including gold tourism facilities, and long-term supply requirements from local contractors and suppliers.” PM Marape said small-scale, local alluvial gold miners (i.e., landowners) will benefit from the new world-class dedicated gold refinery in PNG. “Landowners can expect to receive better pricing for their gold from the National Gold Refinery and will avoid having to deal with ‘industry middlemen’ or having to accept the discounted gold price offered by middlemen for their gold,” he said. PM Marape said PNG miners and the economy will benefit from new and substantial foreign currency inflows. “The project and its gold products are priced in US Dollars,” he said. “The National Gold Refinery will have an estimated initial US$4 billion per annum gold throughput, and more as gold production increases, every year for many decades to come. “The PNG gold mining industry will benefit from having a world-class, professionallymanaged, gold and precious metals refinery in-country and dedicated to servicing all their refining and gold trading requirements. “A local world-class gold refinery means that the time gap between gold production and sale is significantly reduced as unrefined gold does not need to be shipped from PNG to foreign refineries. “This may mean some PNG mining opportunities will now become economic, and it may increase the profitability of existing mines through a reduction in processing cost. “The project also includes arrangements by which current and future PNG gold miners will transition from foreign gold smelting and refining arrangements to refining of all PNG gold and precious metals through the National Gold Refinery. “The State will provide a statutory guarantee of the gold delivery and related obligations of the National Gold Corporation Group to assure PNG gold miners and international banks, investors and gold industry counterparties that their gold and dealings with the Group are safe and secure at all times. “The National Gold Refinery will, by law, provide globally-competitive refining costs, outcomes and benefits for PNG gold miners now and into the future.” “The project, and the significant long-term foreign investment in the project by the private sector, demonstrates regionally, and internationally, that my Government’s foreign investment policy is effective and that PNG is a mature, stable, and safe investment destination for exploration, mining, and production of gold, and refined gold.” “I look forward to work with the investors, our local SME and alluvial gold miners and landowners, as well as those in the big mines to ensure that this refinery and mint is beneficial to all parties in the mining and gold business.”
