Who says email is dead? They obviously haven't seen your grandma at work. Forwards, much like your meemaw, never really seem to die. Maybe it IS all those cigarettes keeping the sub alive! Don't forget to write, Sweaty! FFG is back!

Daily Quiet Time Sunday, June 4th 2023
David enquired of the Lord. — 2 Sam 5:19
Christian, if thou wouldst know the path of duty, take God for thy compass; if thou wouldst steer thy ship through the dark billows, put the tiller into the hand of the Almighty. Many a rock might be escaped if we would let our Father take the helm; many a shoal or quicksand we might well avoid if we would leave it to His sovereign will to choose and to command. The Puritan said, “As sure as ever a Christian carves for himself he’ll cut his own fingers.” “I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go,” is God’s promise to His people. Let us, then, take all our perplexities to Him and say, “Lord, what wilt thou have me to do?” Leave not thy chamber this morning without enquiring of the Lord. — Charles Spurgeon.

2023.06.05 02:03 brassdinosaur71 My Sim has a pregnant double!

My Sim has a pregnant double!
I wanted to upload my not so berry challenge mint house to the galley, so I evicted my Sim. I uploaded the house and moved my Sim back in. Well, I guess I downloaded my original Sim and not the one I had been playing with. Oh well.
So I started all over, but when I got to work the next day there was the Sim I was previously playing with.
Here is where it gets really weird. When she got home from work, she was now pregnant!! She doesn't have any of the skills or relationships of the other her. So she has not even met the baby daddy yet. No other sims around so I'm wondering if she is really pregnant or not. She looks pregnant.

2023.06.05 02:02 User5790 Short bus sizes, how short is short enough?

I’m looking for a cutaway short bus (or maybe a box truck). I was originally looking for something that’s 20’ since that’s about the size of a standard parking spot. But it seems like there is more out there in the 20-25’ range. Im starting to wonder if it really matters all that much, so what if I need to get a little more creative parking? I know some national parks have size limits, but beyond that are there any other down sides to having something closer to 25’? Do most places allow residential parking for up to 25’? Do you have the shortest and wish you went a little longer, or vice versa?

2023.06.05 02:02 chlobo123 Custody of Family Pet

Hi everyone, I have a family dog that I’ve been taking care of for the past year here at college. Now that I’ve graduated, my parents (and sister) are trying to get me back home to talk to them about post-grad plans (I don’t plan on moving back) and have been texting me constantly since. They also want the dog back whenever I go and talk to them; however, I brought her here since our other dog passed away and my roommate has a dog, so the two naturally bonded. Her quality of life is much better here - back at home, she didn’t get tons of attention and my family doesn’t believe in taking dogs to the vet.
For reference, my ndad did not want to take our late dog to the vet because it “ruined his schedule” and TW would just shoot the dog himself.
I also texted to my sister a long explanation about why the dog shouldn’t live at home, especially since the dog is getting really old with minor health problems. 2 days later, she said she wanted her back anyways. I’m pretty upset and am just thinking of going NC with my family now.
What do I do?
TL;DR - family wants dog back but do not care about its quality of life as much as i do - why?

2023.06.05 02:02 phospholipid77 Not sinus pain exactly, but...

So I have wicked seasonal allergies. I need to see an allergist because my family doc and/or PCP just isn't helping. One symptom that is difficult to talk about is my sinus pain. Every time I mention sinus pain to anybody, I get a knowing nod and lecture about congestion and pressure. And then when I try to correct them and explain what it really feels like, they blow me off. So, I want to know if I'm crazy or if anybody else has a symptom like this:
My sinus pain is NOT like pressure or a pressure headache. Rather, it feels like a weird electric shock up in my nose. It's like the feeling when you put your tongue on a 9-volt battery, except instead of being on the tip of my tongue, it feels about an inch up my nose. Another way to put it would be if two prongs of a taser were up each nostril and somebody activated the electrical arch. Or, maybe it almost feels like the sinus tissue is somehow actually spasoming. This feeling lasts anywhere from 4 seconds to four or five minutes. It comes in flares It may in fact be my worst symptom.
I am currently on 40mg of zyrtec, 10mc singulair, and 20mg oral prednisone and even with ALL OF THAT, there are about three or four days a year when my allergies are completely uncontrolled, and those are the worst days because that's when my sinuses offer me that horrid sensation I described above.

2023.06.05 02:02 barefootcuntessa_ Please help me, dear lord, help me AKA Let’s talk CLOSETS!

My guest room has been a doom room for several years at this point. It is an unholy mess and I have to tackle it. Every time I get it to some semblance of acceptable it just takes a few weeks (or days) to get it back to something apocalyptic. I have had organized closet/dressing areas before, so clearly the set up is not working for me. This whole house honestly is an ADHD nightmare but I can’t move so I need to figure out something I can live with.
Please read, critique, and share your favorite closet organizing method/item/trick/magic spell.
Here’s my plan so far:
1) I am going to order a garment rack from Amazon and hope that I can get it finished in 30 days and return it after or sell it on Craigslist. I’m going to first get everything I own off the floor and other surfaces. It has a rack below that I can store shoes as well
4) Remove the existing guts of my closet. It is the most awkward space and the worst set up. I hate it.
5) Get temporary Amazon closet guts that can be easily rearranged. I found some tension rod ones that look really promising. I can play around with placement and configurations and see what works best for me. There are also shoe cabinets that can be used for shoes or as shelving. So as I figure out what I like folded vs hanged I can make space either way.
6) Once I accomplish a stretch of working organization, either live with the cheap stuff if it isn’t too much of an eyesore or look for a permanent approximation that is more durable/higher quality.
I think the biggest thing is that my underwear and pajamas are in a dresser and my clothes are in a closet that is awkwardly behind it. So I need to get those things in the closet so that I am forced to go into the closet every day. If I’m in there I will be more likely to use it rather than just the floordrobe. I think I will put heavy knits and other less often used stuff in the dresser. Obviously my work clothes and favorite lounge stuff should be the easiest to hang up and put away. I’m thinking leggings, underthings, and work out wear I can organize in hanging shoe cubbies. I’m thinking of pairing all my misc sleep tops and bottoms so the can be folded or rolled together. I want to avoid rummaging as much as possible.
Fin! That’s all I’ve got so far.

2023.06.05 02:02 greenbeanparallel Prepared foods for my parents with Covid

I’m doing an Costco instacart order for my parents, who just got Covid for the first time.
They requested lots of frozen veggies, a rotisserie chicken and some gluten free pizzas, which are their standards. Besides the chicken and pizza, they don’t really buy a lot of prepared foods, but their energy is down, so something easy would be nice.
Any advice for easy deli or frozen foods that might be good? They aren’t very hungry but want to eat.

2023.06.05 02:02 luvinchirui Naiinis ako sa mga bumalik sa ibang subtest nung upcat'24

title is self explanatory but honestly im not even sure if my feelings are valid over this or if im just overreacting HAHAHAHA
galit ako sa mga bumalik sa ibang subtest kahit na madiin na sinabi ng proctor na hindi na yun pwede gawin. i get that a lot of people are desperate to get into up. really, i do. im desperate as well. but to stoop so low??? how do you expect to call yourself a "future iskolar ng bayan" kung mangdaraya ka nga? kung makapasok man yung mga nangdaraya tuwing exam, sana alam nila na di nila deserve yung slot na nakuha nila, at sana kainin sila ng guilt.
siguro naffrustrate lang ako kasi halos di na ako matulog (at all) nung week before upcat kasi review ako nang review, at kahit na dugo't pawis binigay ko sa pagrereview, halos 20+ items nablanko ko dahil naubusan ako ng oras, tapos yung iba, ikinapproud nila na binalikan nila yung ibang subtest.

2023.06.05 02:01 ThrowRAsect8912 Help! My sister (30F) thinks my other sister (32F) is abusing her but I don't, what do I tell her?

My sister (30F) Jack says that my other sister (32F) Ann is abusing her but I (21F) don't believe she is. I think Jack has trouble speaking up her mind and doesn't recognize the fact that nobody can control her hands or feet to do something unless she's being threatened at gun point or some extreme situation like that.
For example, Jack says that she didn't want to go with Ann to a party last week but at the time, she didn't seem reluctant to me so I asked her whether she told Ann she didn't want to go, she said that she didn't because she was afraid of her reaction.
Another example is that Jack is constantly complaining about Ann coming over to her place and when I ask her whether she's made it clear that she didn't want her over, she would tell me no, that she felt sorry for Ann and how she's a single mother that's why she kept "tolerating" her.
One final example is that I was visiting our mom with Ann and my niece (Jack's daughter) wanted to see grandma so I told Jack I can take her with us. Ann offered to pay for the plane ticket for our niece and she also brought her plenty of food and entertainment to keep her occupied (more than me.) The next day, Jack calls and tells me that when mom and I were asleep in the morning, Ann and my niece were up but Ann didn't give my niece anything to eat and left the house when she knew no one could tend to her as we were still sleeping. She said that when Ann is with us, she treats her and her daughter differently than when they're alone.
When I questionned her about why Ann would pay for my niece's ticket if she really hated her so much as to starve her on purpose, she said that Ann didn't pay out of the goodness of her intentions but because she wanted to keep her under her control.
These are both my sisters and I love them very much. I would hate to choose sides and really don't know what to do when Jack expects me to believe and support her (she sent me a bunch of texts). What should I tell her?

2023.06.05 02:01 BobbyJCorwen Diary #2 Bible Study 4: Seonghwa

Hello, friends.
Today, we're going to receive quite a lot of exposition about the nature of Strictland through the eyes of Seonghwa. There's a lot to discuss, so let's jump right in.

01: What are your thoughts on the page?

BobbyJ: I have a note on my page that says the Strictland government and economy are further explained in Pt. 3 Intro
GD: Okay. This is a big page
BobbyJ: It's interesting that emotions aren't fully abolished. They're just severely dulled. Which obviously reminds me of The Giver. And that only art has been abolished specifically.
GD: Yes, I think that's right. I feel like we should go paragraph by paragraph with this one because there is a lot
BobbyJ: From the top then?
Once again, it feels that we're left to infer what has happened in the meantime
GD: Yes, the first line makes it feel we're getting the Halateez story from the Grimes’ perspective, but then we get a lot of world building details to help us understand it. Are we to assume that the Grimes siblings think these boys look like Halateez? Or do they not know? Because Halateez wore masks?
BobbyJ: No, I think Ateez probably were like "What's the deal with this place?" And the Grimes Boy has been filling them in on the story. The entry starts at the end of the story and then fills us in
GD: A note: "the entire human race"
We've talked before about whether there is a world outside of strictland. And you know, I still don't know? Maybe that's a future goal? Or Z is in charge of the entire human race, which feels... big
BobbyJ: Yeah--it feels more like the simulation says "the entire human race would benefit from this thing" and Z just applies that structure to his world he somehow is in control of. And by his world, I mean more the country/area he's in charge of
GD: I'm in this second paragraph here, and I guess I'm just thinking that Z isn't wrong. Human emotions do cause crime and terrorism. But it reminds me of the gun debate we're currently having in our country? And all of the politicians who want to blame it on mental health? which is part of the problem, but it isn't the whole problem
BobbyJ: I disagree. It's true that we can't control our feelings. But our feelings do not dictate what we do or how we act. It's the will to do something wrong for the sake of selfishness or greed--which I don't classify as emotions
GD: I guess I'm saying that I think human emotions are a cause, but not the cause
BobbyJ: Mental health is also a factor, I think
GD: I think I am more sympathetic to Z and the simulation. I do think human emotions can lead to crime and terrorism, but they can just as easily lead to beauty and joy. So if you get rid of human emotions, you probably will stop some crime, but you will also stop other things.
BobbyJ: I am not sympathetic to Z because I don't feel this is as benevolent as it might appear. It feels very sinister to me. "This is all for you" is bullshit
GD: I can see Z as the hero of his own story--a Thanos type character--but we don't really know enough about him at this point.
BobbyJ: This is full speculation, but do we think Z also agreed to have his emotions limited and memories removed?
GD: Almost surely not. Those rules don't apply to people who can be trusted, I assume
BobbyJ: "Central government.” Implies, like, the existence of branches, no? Which makes me think the world is bigger than it feels
GD: Does the Korean government currently have branches? I know they have a president, but I guess I don't know much else about how power in the government works there. Like I don't know if they have legislative bodies, how powerful the judicial branch is, etc
BobbyJ: It appears it is similar to the U.S. After reading for two minutes
GD: Helpful context though
BobbyJ: Their president can only serve one five-year term. Means nothing but is interesting. Kinda wish we had that same policy these days
GD: For sure
I want to talk about art. Art with a capital A. Art=emotion
BobbyJ: Yes. The entire process of creating and engaging with art is based on emotions
GD: Sort of no matter how the individual members of Ateez feel about their lore, I have always felt that they embody that philosophy. Just this idea that Art is Important?
I talked about this the other day, but I was very impressed with KQ hiring a local artist for the billboard promotion during anchor. I thought it was very thematic, and also that it sort of embodied a lot of the ideas that they do put out in their diaries. Because as you mentioned earlier, art is the only thing that's banned
BobbyJ: I'm thinking about this idea of songs that give me negative feelings vs. songs that give me no feelings at all. I don't know exactly what I am thinking. But it reminds me of a chat I had with a fellow yearbook advisor years ago
He said that when his staff is trying to decide on their artistic direction for that year's volume, they'd go through a bunch of magazines and everyone would pick out spreads they really like. They'd pin them all to a bulletin board. Then each staffer would get two colors of push pins. They'd all use one color for spreads they like and one for spreads they hate. He said that after the exercise, they'd remove all the spreads that received none or few pins while those that had a lot of either love or hate pins they'd keep.
And I thought it was interesting that the hated spreads were kept. And his reasoning was that those spreads made the staffers feel something. It wasn't a good something, but it was something
GD: That is interesting
BobbyJ: And when I apply this idea to music or movies or tv or art--the things I actively dislike do stick with me while the things I just nothing fade away
GD: It reminds me of book clubs in a way? Like, in my book club, we have a great book club discussion when everyone loves or hates the book. If people are like, yeah, it's fine, the conversation is so.... nothing.
BobbyJ: Is it. . . harder to talk about things that we love actually?
I can't help but notice that whenever there's a heartfelt appreciation post, it gets very little traction and engagement. But if someone does an "unpopular opinion" or "things you hate about the group you love" post, suddenly everyone has something to share. Perhaps we've talked about this before. Justifying why you dislike something is easier than justifying why you love something?
GD: So I sometimes wonder if, when it comes to music, the problem is one of vocabulary more so than a lack of desire? Like, most people have taken a basic literature class, so when we love a book, we can all universally talk about things like plot, structure, characters--we have some sort of shared understanding of the parts of a story and can discuss and identify the things that we like
It's different for music. I do not know how to identify the parts of a song or the instruments or just the music things that are happening. Music knowledge and vocabulary is so much more niche, so I do think that makes it harder to discuss and pinpoint music that we really love--because we're experiencing it fully emotionally, the context and words all removed. So I do think with music especially, it is easier to talk about the things that we dislike.
BobbyJ: But shouldn't your dislike also require vocabulary? I remember when I was trying to rant about O.O I didn't have any of the words so I had to resort to metaphor
GD: I think it's possibly easier to come up with metaphors for things we dislike than things we love. I can only describe listening to Jongho as like looking into the face of god so many times before I start to sound like I'm slightly insane.
But you know, people don't have the right words to describe why they dislike something all the time--and they just go forward with the wrong words. How many times have you seen someone say "Ateez's music is too noisy for me" when Ateez has possibly two songs in their discography that could be labeled noise music? "I don't like the autotune" when there's barely any autotune
BobbyJ: People do seem to have Feelings about Ateez music. Which I would argue supports the idea that Ateez are making Art
I do wonder exactly what Z classifies as art
GD: I for sure agree with you. It's like that conversation about what a cover should be from the other day: you can like or dislike what Ateez does when covering another group's song, but they will be changing it to achieve their own artistic expression. They will not make you a copy. They will make new art.
We know paintings. Music seems implied.
BobbyJ: Fashion probably? Which makes me think it's interesting that Left Eye specifically is a former designer. But it wasn't the art ban that made him give up designing
Actually, reading ahead. I'm not sure fashion was banned after all? It's hard to tell
GD: I guess it's interesting to me because anything can be art. A house, a car, furniture? Given the right person making those things, they can be art just as easily as they might not be art.
So I do wonder if Z is defining Art more broadly... like, art is not this thing, but art is anything that incites an undue amount of emotion
BobbyJ: Right--I was just thinking, is all music art? And I would argue no if the person writing a song is not doing it for the sake of expression but for the sake of making money. But if that song evokes emotion in someone else, I'd say yes, it is art.
GD: We do have those prohibited signs from Rhythm Ta, which calls out "art, music, dance"? Am I remembering that correctly? Or is it "art, music, emotion"?
What does it mean for something to be defined as art is really a question courts have struggled with for many, many, many years. So it's possible that even in Z's world, what is art is a question that is constantly influx and being redefined
[BobbyJ provides screenshot of Rhythm Ta stage]
Okay, so art, dance, and music are Art specifically.
"Art" lower case art, I'm assuming is paintings, drawings, sculptures. The physical arts.
BobbyJ: Right. Literature and fashion aren't mentioned. Or acting. But maybe they fall under the general Art umbrella. Keeping it vague gives Z more control
GD: Do you know the supreme court case where the supreme court tries to define art?
I feel like I should look it up to get that quote. Hold on--I need to check something
[GD checks something]
So in Tutton v. Viti, the supreme court implied that it is up to the creators to define whether the thing they created is art. The case was about sculpture, and whether these sculptors who were copying sculptures were engaged in the act of creating art
BobbyJ: Just straight up copying?
GD: And basically, they said the sculptors were artists due to their skill despite the lack of creative merit. They weren't trying to like, sell them. It was creating replica sculptures in art class. Which would violate copyright (if they were selling them)
BobbyJ: So, like, if I do a cover of a BTS song and I sound identical to BTS, I'm still an artist . Hypothetically
GD: If you perform it with good enough skill, according to the US Supreme Court, it seems so
BobbyJ: Wait--they weren't selling them? Then what was the problem? How did it end up in the Supreme Court?
GD: I have not read the full case and it is extremely old, so hard to parse, but it seems the original sculptor did not want them making replicas in their art class and argued they were not allowed to do it because it wasn't real art
BobbyJ: Artists do studies all the time where they basically copy other artists' work in order to learn techniques
GD: And the supreme court said, no, they can do that. Which, exactly. This is a precedent that holds. If you do art and sell it, I can't copy it and also sell it. I can however copy it and use it for my own personal use (legally--that doesn't mean it's ethical, but legally)
BobbyJ: Well, it's the same idea as me copying a designer dress and making it myself and for myself because I don't want to spend $800 on a dress
GD: Like if someone made something on etsy that I wanted, and I didn't want to pay for it, I can legally copy it for myself. Right, the supreme court would define both of those things as artistic endeavors
BobbyJ: Huh. I mean--I don't disagree. I'm also not certain it needs to be termed as "art"
GD: Terming it "art" is how they protect it because art is a protected right under the constitution
BobbyJ: Wait--if art is also a protected right in the South Korean constitution, then that would imply that Z was able to change the constitution. Which is wild. How long did this process take?
(Also, assuming that Strictland was originally more like South Korea)
GD: We'd have to review the South Korean constitution. I don't know for sure that it is a right because I know nothing about their legal system. But because art is protected under our constitution, I have always defined art fairly broadly. So considering art being banned, is putting me in a different head space
BobbyJ: Article 22: All citizens shall enjoy freedom of learning and the arts.
GD: I'm now looking up how to make constitutional amendments in Korea
BobbyJ: I mean if they also had a National Assembly, he got the bill passed there
GD: It makes me think I've gone pretty far afield here
BobbyJ: If we're thinking about it, I guarantee the Intern also thought about it
GD: I would like to note that "people enjoyed material affluence"
BobbyJ: Yes, I have a sticky note about that
GD: And I am thinking of Maslow's hierarchy? Which I know is something we've also discussed a lot. But I am wondering, how many citizens weren't having their basic needs met when they agreed to give up art?
BobbyJ: Right. Is art part of our Maslow?
A lot probably. There had to have been problems in order for people to accept Z's proposal
GD: It's certainly easier to give up art if you're not currently able to eat
BobbyJ: Mingi comes to mind. Which I think is when we were discussing Maslow
GD: I have argued, and I will still argue it, that art should be part of human's basic needs. Like, it can make the rest of it all seem less grim for some people. But yeah, if you don't have a place to live, don't have any food, are struggling to just survive, giving up art for the promise of having your basic needs meet will be very appealing to many people
BobbyJ: I think I would argue that art belongs on the "love and belonging" tier which is about friends, family and connection. Art helps us connect with ourselves and others and the world around us. Like, you read a poem that perfectly describes how you feel. Or Ateez releases Turbulence and you swear they pulled the lyrics straight out of your soul
GD: Mmmmmm. . . and love and belonging aren't actually that low on the pyramid. High I mean. They're not that high--they're in the middle
BobbyJ: But you can't really fully reap the benefits of that tier if you are starving to death. And self-actualization is pretty meaningless if you aren't connected to other people in some way
GD: I spend a lot of time thinking about self-actualization which I forgot was even on this pyramid. I'm looking at the pyramid now, obviously
Yes. Art is love and belonging. I've decided you're right. So they've traded in love and belonging for the two things below it
In the next paragraph, they say that the songs had "the power to attract people" which I think is interesting
BobbyJ: The "various fields" is interesting to me. I think of people in different lines of work. Like scientists, teachers, lawyers, etc. But I'm not sure that's what it means
GD: I had long ago been confused about who the black pirates were and how they related to halaateez, but this line makes it pretty clear that halateez sort of inspired other people to get out of Z's control, and then those other people formed the black pirates
BobbyJ: Right. Halateez are "men wearing black fedora.” The Black Pirates is the name of the resistance
GD: Halateez "stimulated" them. Which, with what we know from Halazia, makes sense that the resistance seems to venerate them? Because they weren't necessarily a part of, and well known, to the resistance. They were merely the inspirational rallying cry. Does that make sense?
BobbyJ: Like Katniss. Not everyone knew her but they knew OF her
GD: Yes, and I'm interpreting Halazia as showing us what Strictland thought of halateez, not that halateez appear in the MV because I do not think they do.
Back to your point, what do you think people from various fields means if not different positions?
BobbyJ: I wondered if it meant more physical location. Although, if you have people with different skills and specialties, it would explain how the resistance is able to start fighting back
GD: Do you think it could mean something similar to stations too? Like, young, old, rich, poor, etc
BobbyJ: Could be.
GD: Skipping to the last line, we have Hwa sort of repeating a line similar to Hongjoong's in the first entry? What's important is getting back home. And they can't do that now
BobbyJ: Right. They haven't grasped their place in this story yet
GD: I read ahead because I couldn't stop myself and the jump is fascinating "we have to get back home" to "I won't come back home"
BobbyJ: I have also read ahead but a lot further
GD: Sounds right lol
BobbyJ: Because I became very curious about a different switch--how do they go from we need to get home to let's save this country
And I think I have an idea
GD: That is also the switch I was looking for
BobbyJ: This is way ahead, but after the Receiving of the Suits, in the very next chapter, San discovers the lost memories and feels "a surge of anger.” After that, Yeosang gets caught and all the drama happens with the museum and Yunho's brother. But I think that's the switch. I think it triggers San's empathy. And he spreads the agenda to the others
GD: I am very interested in what's happening with Yunho, but I suppose I need to save my interest for like 6 weeks. I do think we will need to cut this bible study in half
BobbyJ: Expected
GD: Well, this was a big page. It had a lot. We read some constitutions even
BobbyJ: Much was learned
GD: Do we have any more thoughts on the page? Or should we pick a patron saint to hold us to next week?
BobbyJ: I'm sure there's lots more to say. I just don't know what any of those things are.
GD: Perhaps we will have more thoughts on the page next week even. A double round of thoughts on the page
BobbyJ: Might even need a part 3
GD: I've been using an extra ES album to pin the postcard for my patron saint on my bulletin board, and I have appreciated it deeply. Hongjoong has been up for two weeks now
BobbyJ: I feel like the patron saints actually work. Except I didn't have one this past week and that probably explains a lot
GD: I kept Hongjoong, but I do think it would've been wise to have a refresher
BobbyJ: Let's just make sure we do it every Sunday, Bible study or not
GD: Right, even if we cancel bible study, a new, Very Important thing
So, this week, I need to finish the line edit of this book. Which means I need to focus and stay motivated. I think the boy I want to guide me through it is Jongho. I need his professionalism in the face of challenges and his commitment to doing the things that he doesn't like as much because he knows that it is part of his job.
Also, it's hard to think about anything other than his Immortal Songs stage, so I may as well lean in
BobbyJ: Let it be your battle cry
So. This is the last full week of classes. Which means a lot of work to finish off the semester. But, the list is so much shorter than it used to be. So that's something to be happy about.
But also, based on his condition today, I suspect that this might be the week I have to let go of Oliver. [Editor’s note: It was.]
And I think I need San. His ability to embody whatever moment he's in on stage. I don't fully understand how it translates, but I feel it's true
GD: Hmmm yes I think I understand, though I don't have the words either.
There's something about present-ness and humanity in there. I have always thought that San had a real ability to see the human-ness in others and to communicate the human-ness in himself. Which probably only makes sense to me.
BobbyJ: No, I think you're right. There's something extremely real about him
GD: I hope he helps guide you through what has the potential to be a very hard week
BobbyJ: Whatever happens, we keep moving forward. Which also feels very San.
Thank you for joining us today. We'll be back next week with our Seonghwa Sacred Writing Practice. Have an excellent week, and may your personal patron saint guide you well.

2023.06.05 02:01 Millenniauld Chicken of the woods!

Chicken of the woods!
Been growing one of these on a dead root in our yard for 4 years almost. This is our first year taking the plunge and eating it. XD Tester nibbles went down just fine, so tonight I'll be using some of this to make General Tso's Not-Tso-Chicken! I don't know if it's still "foraging" if it comes from your own 1 acre property, but we didn't put it there, lol.
I did give one to a local foraging woman last year, she paid me (I didn't ask for anything!) with a Starbucks gift card. Since an expert was sure of what it was, I felt safer trying it ourselves this year. :]

2023.06.05 02:01 TheFermentationist Skiddish 14yo GSDxPoodle around 10mo baby

I have a 14yo ~80lb GSD Poodle mix. He was never really socialized with kids/babies, but now I have a 10mo daughter and he is pretty skiddish around her. When he is fully aware of his surroundings (his hearing isn't the best anymore), when he sees my daughter getting close to him, he'll scramble to his feet (arthritis) and remove himself from the area. When being with my daughter is on his terms, there is no issues. He'll go up to her, smell her, lick her, then go about his business. The problem arises when he is not fully aware and my daughter crawls up to him and startles him. He has never bitten a person, my daughter or anyone else. That said, if you see the interaction when this occurs, it looks like he will/could bite her. This obviously is not acceptable. He'll bark up close to her face, and it looks like he could snap at her. He hasn't yet, but this is behavior that is way too close to comfort.
Anyone have any suggestions on how I can help him become less skiddish around my daughter, to not startle when she nears? He does not startle like this with any adults (myself, my wife, my parents....). At the moment, I am calling to him whenever I see her near him so that he is aware. With this he'll typically get up and move to avoid her, but it is difficult to catch every instance. Not to mention it does not help the issue, just the instance. This has occurred twice now and I really want to nip it in the bud so it doesn't escalate.

2023.06.05 02:01 Osonarleyy My mom keeps hanging with my friends!

I'm 24 years old a female and my mom is 41.
To start me and my mom are JUST NOW getting to a point in life where we are actually "friends" or getting along. This is the longest we have got along EVER. Growing up I always wanted my mom to be more kind and loving and understanding. Well she isn't she never sees what she does as wrong. On multiple occasions my mom has went out to dinner and even took as far as partying or hitting on my female friends and I have expressed how it makes me uncomfortable and even angry. She often complains about having no friends and honestly it's her fault because she's mean to her friends which is ironic because she's SOOO nice to mine. Lately she has been putting all her problems on me with my sibling and her relationship issues even though I live a hour away and have a toddler to take care of so it's really annoying how she expects me to be there for her in a time of need but doesn't even consider how I feel! I've vented her about always being at home and never having adult time yet she takes MY FRIEND out to dinner. Mind you this isn't her first time doing so but last time it was a different friend and we weren't friends anymore at the time and me and my mom weren't on good terms either. I feel like I may be over reacting but it really hurts my feelings how they didn't even think to invite me but can pick up the phone and call me about their drama. AITAH?

2023.06.05 02:01 Joey_Thememe 22 [M4F] Newcastle Upon Tyne/UK - Looking for a genuine connection

Hey! I’m a 22 year old indian dude who moved from India to the UK for my masters.
I always had a bit of an identity issue in india since I didn’t subscribe much to the common values in the country and the very casual racism, islamophobia, homophobia so on and so forth. Arriving here in the UK, I realized that even though I may share values with the majority of the youth here, I don’t share much else because I am slightly different from most people be it in India or in the UK.
I have tried all sorts of ways of meeting potential partners - tinder, social events, clubs and of course reddit. The best experiences I’ve had with are with the people I’ve met via reddit. There’s too many rules when it comes to all the aforementioned platforms (except reddit) dont double text, dont give too much attention, dont be overtly clingy, dont text too much, dont put effort and I really cant keep up with. It takes a toll on my mental health and I’d rather be direct and be treated in the same way. So if you’re someone who’s talkative and expresses themselves fully Hi!!!!!
I’m a 5 ft 7 inch lad who’s very recently started understanding how to dress myself properly. I love movies, mangas and anime. My favourite music genres are hip hop and electronic music with some dash of pop. Although I want to start getting into Rock too but would love some guidance on that. I am very passionate about my interests and would love people who are as geeky as I am about their own interests. I tend to be philosophical and overthink too much sometimes but I like doing it (sometimes )Mental gymnastics is damn fun. Used to be a stoner, but I quit rather recently. Still dabble in psychedelics though. Love alcohol although i dont drink frequently. I think this much is enough for now. If you think we could vibe do hmu.
PS: I’m open to exchanging pics after a certain sense of comfort has been established. I strictly want something offline so plz be from the UK? Byeee
