2023.04.01 13:41 TripleS034 FNAF 2 Makes No Sense To Me Anymore

Ever since it's been noticed that the Freddy & Bonnie animatronics that William Afton tears apart in the FNAF 3 minigames, which apparently take place in the FNAF 1 location, have buttons on their chests, FNAF 2 has no longer made any sense to me.
The Freddy & Bonnie animatronics we see in FNAF 1 don't have buttons on their chests, however the Freddy & Bonnie animatronics we see in FNAF 2 do. And as we understand it these Withered versions of the animatronics were taken from their location in FNAF 2, remade & placed in the FNAF 1 location.
However in the FNAF 3 minigames, what with Freddy & Bonnie having buttons on their chests, this would imply the animatronics William tore apart in the FNAF 1 location were pre-Withered versions of the FNAF 2 animatronics.
The only way I can make sense of this is that obviously each Freddy's restaurant had their own set of animatronics. The og animatronics in the FNAF 2 location became Withered & were replaced with the Toy animatronics.
But the og animatronics in the FNAF 1 location never became Withered & were never replaced with Toy animatronics. Yes, I am saying both locations were still functioning at the same time, there doesn't have to be only 1 Freddy's location open at one time, multiple can be at once.
So this would mean at the time of the MCI, Afton stuffed the children into the FNAF 1 og animatronics at the FNAF 1 location, then tore them apart, was forced into the Spring Bonnie suit by the children's spirits, got springlocked & was sealed in the back room.
The remains of the FNAF 1 og animatronics were then taken & remade into the animatronics we see in FNAF 1. That would mean the good ending, the Happiest Day ending, of FNAF 3 never happened, the children's spirits never moved on & remained in the remade animatronics.
If Mike Schmidt is in fact Michael Afton that would also mean Michael spent a good deal of time in the same building as his father but never knew due to the room William got springlocked in was boarded up.
With all of that being said however, the events of FNAF 2 now make zero sense to me. Who was possessing the Withered og animatronics at the FNAF 2 location? Did William murder another batch of kids? And instead of him stuffing the bodies into the animatronics was it in fact The Puppet as we see in the Give Gifts, Give Life minigame?
Also note we only see The Puppet place the animatronic heads onto four of the bodies, the middle child which the Golden Freddy head appears on does so of its own accord, which to me implies that the spirit possessing Golden Freddy had nothing to do with The Puppet.
And during the SAVETHEM minigames we see five dead kids scattered throughout the building but there are in fact six pools of blood, one hidden behind The Puppet's prize box.
I can guarantee I've missed something that probably invalidates most of what I've just written so please let me know! Make FNAF 2 make sense again for me please!

2023.04.01 13:29 InNeedofAdvice314 I'm struggling to get past my social anxiety and initiate even a basic conversation

I'm a university student suffering from social anxiety. My main symptom is that I simply do not know how to talk to people. Whenever I think of saying something without being talked to first and I do not have a 'justified' reason to talk to another person (like about something in class) I start worrying I'll be annoying them and I'll look like a weirdo. As a result I have zero true friends, probably haven't had one in years and honestly was never really close to another person beside my family. Relationships are also obviously completely impossible in these circumstances.
To try and overcome that I decided to start with sitting next to someone in my dining hall and talking to them. This monumental task is going very poorly.
It turns out everywhere I look, it's either someone sitting with a computer (they're working) or there are people sitting in groups (and I don't want to interrupt them). It's very hard to me to find a person sitting by themselves to whom I could comfortable approach and ask to eat my meal at their table.
In the rare cases I find someone, I feel they don't want to be bothered, and that I'd be annoying them if I talked to them. If there happens to be an empty table nearby, I think they'll believe I'm so weirdo for trying to talk to a random person I don't know when I could sit by myself.
I actually feel like I've regressed, because last year I had lot less difficulty doing these things. For a period of time, I had a habit of talking to someone at least once a week, a few times actually managed to have a nice conversation.
What can I do to make this easier? If I cannot talk to a person over lunch, my chance of reaching any of normal human milestones from first paragraph is basically zero.

2023.04.01 13:29 kingfrano Me (27M) and my girlfriend (25F) have been going out for 3 years. Help

It has been an up and down the last 3 years. We get on well most of the time, it can be boring, I guess you could say its comfortable. I'm not a bad looking guy but a bit socially slack at times. Queit shy. My first serious girlfriend. Important to note we don't currently live together. Its hard to say I ever felt the moment where 'shes the one'. There are some questions from another similar post that I'll answer that might help sum up where we're at.
Do you feel like "She gets me?" She knows alot more about me than most. Sometimes I feel she mirrors me and tells me what I want to hear though.
Do you feel like this is a person who you'd really miss if you left? Atm I feel I could go 2 weeks without missing her, feel I need a timeout. (We've tried this in the past and really messed with her) I feel like long term I probably would but might be able to adjust
Do you feel like she's your best friend? Most days yes, somedays no. My bestfreind has always changed throughout my life.
Do I really, really, deep down want to spend every day of the rest of my life with this particular person. Not every day no. Feel I need my space at times, this is just who I am.
What do you think?

2023.04.01 13:26 Forsaken-Garlic4818 money diary: I‘m 28, live in Boston, make roughly $70k as a 👩🏼‍🏫 and everyone is ragey at work this week! (emoji-style baby)

part 1: net worth
positive net worth
category #shesworthsomething
💹 15,700 Roth IRA, not much but it’s honest work. I wasn’t able to contribute last year but sent $1400 this month. Don’t think I will max this year but will do what I can.
📱 1,400 457, not even sure why I contribute to this ($50/paycheck)
📈 25,100 Pension – cash value not super relevant here. 11% mandated contribution
💰 7,100 checking
🤑 3,000 HYSA @ 4.25%

category oops, she’s in debt again

part 2: income
Nothing exciting here as a public school teacher. My salary is fixed and the entire internet can figure out exactly how much I make. Next year I will apply to be a new teacher mentor to move over a lane (6% raise while I do the job). We won a great raise in our last contract so we can finally be paid almost as much as everyone around us!
This is my 5th year teaching but am on step 6 of 11 due to a full year internship.
read my paycheck and weep
pay schedule: 24 paychecks a year (NOT 26), biweekly Fridays with the exception of holidays and the final day of school, where you receive paychecks 22, 23, 24 and are expected to make that last late June through early September
each paycheck is different, so let’s do paycheck #1

For those keeping track at home, my monthly gross is typically 5,871.66 and my net is typically 3,804.94
Why typically?

🏫 412.92 Private loan, paid biweekly (so if it’s a rare 3 payment month it’s more). The minimum monthly payment is something like $316, but I’m sending an extra $50 to get some benefit from the power of compound interest. 4.79% is not a make or break rate. Payoff 2034 but hope this can happen sooner.

🪑 40 Hard to quantify. Since I moved in, I had a free couch moved ($200), bought a very nice TV ($750), a vacuum ($250), filters for vacuum ($30), and the world’s nicest washer ($1900). So YNAB is telling me a horrifying $400/mo, but let’s call it 40 going forward

Total: 1,524.35
Grand totals:
reflection: typical week money-wise in terms of reflecting my non-house spending – I’m saving really aggressively right now and don’t have a lot of money for discretionary spending. Even if I did, I’m very much a homebody during the work week. My job is probably more stressful than most as a baseline but this week was truly unbelievably bad. Still, looking through the week and taking time to step back I realize just how quality my support network is and for that I'm very grateful.

2023.04.01 13:22 ThrowRA-youngg I(f19) feel trapped in my relationship because my boyfriend(m20) love bombed me

I am a sophomore in college, same as my boyfriend Blake. I met him in September at a party and after that he pursued me for a month. I wasn’t into the idea of being in a relationship and avoided that for a while. Eventually I just decided to date him Bc he’s a great guy and he was fun. I didn’t expect the relationship to be serious at all because he knew I wasn’t really into all that and what kind of girl I was (loved to party, non monogamous). About 3 weeks into our relationship I was pretty upset because my niece and nephew were supposed to come visit me for thanksgiving break and their mom could no longer afford it. Blake went behind my back and texted my niece saying he would pay for their tickets and then FaceTimed my sister to confirm. I didn’t want any of my family to know I had a boyfriend and I was pretty pissed off when I found out. I didn’t even know he had done this until we picked them up from the airport. I was very excited to see them until I found out he paid $900 for their airfare. We had been dating for only 3 fucking weeks and he spent almost a grand on me. I couldn’t act upset because he had done such a nice thing and I wanted to enjoy my time with my kids I hadn’t seen in so long.
Fast forward a month later I wasn’t sure if I even wanted to be with him like I definitely did not love him how he loved me and I’ve always been a self sabotager. I was also going through some mental shit and I felt like I couldn’t tell him. This is gonna sound bad but please understand. I was going to break up with him and my best friend(m21) flew here to stop me and to check on my well being. Me and my best friend kind of have a past of mutual unspoken love. He was who I wanted to be with but his mental health was absolute shit and he dropped out and we knew it would never work out. I had wondered if I continued to stay with Blake then I would never know if I was missing my chance with best friend. We confessed our feelings for eachother and he kissed me very passionately and that was that. He told me it would be stupid if I broke up with Blake and I just needed to get him (bff) out of my system.
I felt like I had to learn to love Blake it didn’t come as naturally to me as it did to him. Eventually tho I did really fall in love with him and I do love him today. Next year i need to go on a journey of self discovery and I’m going to leave the country for a few months maybe more. I expressed this to Blake and he said he would come with me. I do love him and want to be in a relationship but I do not want him to come with me. I could break up with him but I would feel horrible. He’s an amazing boyfriend now but I don’t see it long term, but I’ve honestly never seen anything in my future. He buys me things all the time too, I don’t even ask he just likes to get me gifts. I’ve told him that I can’t do the same for him because I have no money at all, but he says that he doesn’t care and likes buying me things. So with the $900 plus all the gifts and restaurants he’s probably put 3-4 grand towards me. I’ve put maybe less than 400.
I don’t know if I should just stay with him and see where this goes because who knows, maybe we’ll have an amazing future together. Or should I just break up with him now to spare his feelings if I were to break up with him next year. The money and gifts has definitely been a contributing factor in me wanting to stick this out because I would feel horrible. But I’ve also never asked him to do any of the things he does, he just spends spontaneously. Idek if anyone can answer this but could someone point me in the right direction or just give advice on what seems like the best thing to do.
TLDR: My boyfriend has spent a ridiculous amount of money on me in such a short relationship. I didn’t plan on it being serious but after a $900 gift there was no way I could break up with him. I do love him a lot today but I don’t know if I should continue this relationship when the amount of love is not mutual.

2023.04.01 13:21 AnderLouis_ Hail and Farewell (George Moore) - Chapter 11

PROMPTS: Poor Edward. Something quite wrong about what went on here...
Today's Reading, via Project Gutenberg:


While Edward revised his play Yeats and I talked of The Shadowy Waters, and the Boers crossed one of our frontiers into Cape Colony or Natal—I have forgotten which; but I remember very well my attitude of mind towards the war, and how I used to walk every day from Tillyra to Ardrahan, a distance of at least two Irish miles, to fetch the newspaper, so anxious was I to read of a victory for our soldiers.
Before starting I would pay Edward a visit in his tower, and after a few words about the play, I would tell him that the way out of our South African difficulties was simple—the Government should arm the blacks; and this would make Edward growl out that the English Government was beastly enough to do it; and I remember how I used to go away, pleased that I had always the courage of my morality. Other men do what they know to be wrong, and repent, or think they repent; but as it would be impossible for me to do what I believe to be wrong, repentance is for me an idle word; and, thinking that to raise an army of seventy thousand blacks would be a fine trick to play upon the Boers, I often returned through the park full of contempt for my countrymen, my meditations interrupted occasionally by some natural sight—the beauty of the golden bracken through which the path twisted, a crimson beech at the end of it, or the purple beauty of a line of hills over against the rocky plain freckled with the thatched cabins of the peasantry. Nor do I remember more beautiful evenings than these were; and, as the days drew in, the humble hawthorns shaped themselves into lovely silhouettes, and a meaning seemed to gather round the low, mossy wall out of which they grew, until one day the pictorial idea which had hitherto stayed my steps melted away, and I became possessed by a sentimental craving for the country itself. After all, it was my country, and, strangely perturbed, I returned to the castle to ask Edward's opinion regarding the mysterious feeling that had glided suddenly into my heart as I stood looking at the Burran Mountains.
It is difficult for anybody to say why he loves his country, for what is a country but a geographical entity? And I am not sure that Edward was listening very attentively when I told him of a certain pity, at variance with my character, that had seemed to rise out of my heart.
It would be strange if Cathleen ni Houlihan were to get me after all. That is impossible ... only a passing feeling; and I sat looking at him, remembering that the feeling I dreaded had seemed to come out of the landscape and to have descended into my heart. But he was so little interested in what seemed to me transcendental that I refrained from further explanation, concluding that he was thinking of his play, which had gone to Coole yesterday. I was led to think this, for he was sitting at the window as if watching for Yeats. We were expecting our poet.
Here he is. I wonder what he thinks of your revisions?
And to save Edward from humiliation I asked Yeats as soon as he came into the room if he liked the new third act.
No, no; it's entirely impossible. We couldn't have such a play performed. And dropping his cloak from his shoulders, he threw his hair from his brow with a pale hand, and sank into a chair, and seemed to lose himself in a sudden meditation. It was like a scene from a play, with Yeats in the principal part; and, admiring him, I sat thinking of the gloom of Kean, of the fate of the Princes in the Tower, headsmen, and suchlike things, and thinking, too, that Yeats, notwithstanding his hierarchic airs, was not an actual literary infallibility. The revised third act might not be as bad as he seemed to think it. He might be mistaken ... or prejudiced. Yeats's literary integrity is without stain, that I knew. But he might be prejudiced against Edward without knowing it. The success of The Heather Field had stirred up in Edward, till then the most unassuming of men, a certain aggressiveness which, for some time past, I could see had been getting on Yeats's nerves. Nor am I quite sure that myself at that moment would not have liked to humble Edward a little ... only a little. But let us not be drawn from the main current of our resolution, which is entirely literary, by a desire to note every sub-current. Yeats looked very determined, and when I tried to induce him to give way he answered:
We are artists, and cannot be expected to accept a play because other plays as bad, and nearly as bad, have been performed.
Saints, I said, do not accept sins because sins are of common occurrence.
He did not answer, but sat looking into the fire gloomily.
He takes a very determined view of your play, Edward. It may not strike me in the same light. If you will give me the manuscript I'll just run upstairs with it. I can't read it in front of you both.
There was no reason why I should read the first two acts; Edward had not touched them. What he had engaged to rewrite was the last half of the third act, and a few minutes would enable me to see if he had made sufficient alterations for the play to be put forward—not as a work of art—that is as something that would be acted fifty years hence for the delight of numerous audiences, as proof of the talent that existed in Ireland at the end of the nineteenth century—but as a play to which literary people could give their attention without feeling ashamed of themselves afterwards. There was no reason why we should ask for more than that; for the subject of the play was merely one of topical interest, and it is a mistake—I pointed this out to Yeats—to be very particular about the literary quality of such a play. All the same it would have to be put right, and this Edward could not do. It was more a matter for a cunning literary hand than for a fellow like Edward with a streak of original genius in him, and very little literary tact.
On these reflections I sat down to read, but the play was so crude, even in its revised form, that I fell to thinking that Yeats's thoughts must have wandered very often from the page. He should have remembered, however, whilst we discussed the play with Edward, that Edward was a human being after all, and not made it apparent that he looked upon the play as something the local schoolmaster might have written, and of all, should have kept looks out of his face which said as plainly as words could: Your soul is inferior, beneath my notice; take it away. He did not even seem to apprehend that Edward was torn between love of self and love of Ireland. Abstract thinking, I said, kills human sympathies, and Yeats is no longer able to appreciate anything but literary values. The man behind the play is ignored ... Yeats can no longer think with his body; it is only his mind that thinks. He is all intellect, if that isn't too cardinal a word. And seeing before me quite a new country of conjecture, one which I had never rambled in, I sat thinking of the cruelty of the monks of the Middle Ages, and the cruelty of the nuns and the monks of the present day. Their thoughts are abstracted from this world, from human life—that is why; and Yeats was a sort of monk of literature, an Inquisitor of Journalism who would burn a man for writing that education was progressing by leaps and bounds. Opinions make people cruel—literary as well as theological. Whereas the surgeon, whose thought is always of the flesh, is the kindliest of creatures. It is true that one sometimes hears of surgeons who, in the pursuit of science, willingly undertake operations which they know to be dangerous, and we know that the scientists in the laboratory are indifferent to the sufferings of the animals they vivisect. Even so, Nature thinks like the surgeon who risks an operation in order that he may discover the cause of the disease. The knowledge he gathers from the death of the patient is passed on, and it saves the life of another. But the artist cannot pass on any portion of his art to his pupil; his gift lives in himself and dies with him, and his art comes as much from his heart as from his intellect. The intellect outlives the heart, and the heart of Yeats seemed to me to have died ten years ago; the last of it probably went into the composition of The Countess Cathleen.
Yesterevening, when we wandered about the lake, talking of The Shadowy Waters, trying to free it from the occult sciences that had grown about it, Fomorians beaked and unbeaked, and magic harps and Druid spells, I did not perceive that the difficulties into which the story had wandered could be attributed to a lack of human sympathy. But Yeats's treatment of Edward proved it to me. The life of the artist is always at difficult equipoise; he may fail from lack of human sympathies, or he may yield altogether to them and become a mere philanthropist; and we may well wonder what the choice of the artist would have been if he had to choose between the destruction of Messina and Reggio or of Herculaneum and Pompeii. Were he to choose the ancient ruins in preference to the modern towns, he might give very good reasons for doing so, saying that to prolong the lives of a hundred thousand people for a few years would not be, in his opinion, worth a bronze like the Narcissus. A very specious argument might be maintained in favour of the preservation of the bronze, even at the price of a hundred thousand lives. Perhaps he might let the bronze go, but if all Greek art were added he would hesitate, and when he had let one hundred thousand men and women go to their doom he would probably retire into the mountains to escape from sight of every graven thing. To write a play our human and artistic sympathies must be very evenly balanced, and I remembered that among my suggestions for the reconstruction of The Shadowy Waters, the one that Yeats refused most resolutely was that the woman should refuse to accompany the metaphysical pirate to the ultimate North, but return somewhat diffidently, ashamed of herself, to the sailors who were drinking yellow ale.
Yeats has reflected himself in the pirate, I said. All he cares for is a piece of literature. The man behind it matters nothing to him. But am I not just as wicked as he? Worse, indeed, for Edward is my oldest friend and I do not defend him. Whereupon the manuscript fell from my hand, and I sat for a long time thinking; and then, getting up, I wandered out of my room and hung over the banisters, looking down into the central hall, asking myself what Yeats and Edward were saying to each other, and thinking that their talk must be strained and difficult, thinking too that my duty was to go down to them and bring their bitter interview to an end.
And I resolved to say that I could see no reason why the play should not be acted. But half-way down the stairs my conscience forbade so flagrant a lie. Yeats would not believe me. And what good would it do to allow Edward to bring over actors and actresses for the performance of such a play? It's kinder to tell him the truth. In the middle of the hall I stopped again. But if I tell him the truth the Irish Literary Theatre will come to an end.
Well, Edward, I've read your play ... but the alterations you've made aren't very considerable, and I can't help thinking that the play requires something more done to it.
You've read my play very quickly. Are you sure you've read it?
I've read all the passages that you've altered.
I had only glanced through them, but I could not tell him that a glance was sufficient.
If there were time, you might alter it yourself. You see, the time is short—only two months; and I watched Edward. For a long time he said nothing, but sat like a man striving with himself, and I pitied him, knowing how much of his life was in his play.
I give you the play, he said, starting to his feet. Do with it as you like; turn it inside out, upside down. I'll make you a present of it!
But, Edward, if you don't wish me to alter your play—
Ireland has always been divided, and I've preached unity. Now I'm going to practise it. I give you the play.
But what do you mean by giving us the play? Yeats said.
Do with it what you like. I'm not going to break up the Irish Literary Theatre. Do with my play what you like, and he rushed away.
I'm afraid, Yeats, his feelings are very much hurt.
And my heart went out to the poor man sitting alone in his tower, brooding over his failure. I expected Yeats to say something sympathetic, but all he said was: We couldn't produce such a play as that. It was perhaps the wisest thing he could say under the circumstances. For what use is there in sentimentalising over the lamb whose throat is going to be cut in the slaughter-house?
The sooner the alterations are made the better.
And I asked Yeats to come over tomorrow.
You see, you'll have to help me with this adaptation, for I know nothing of Ireland.
It is a pleasure to be with him, especially when one meets him for the purpose of literary discussion; he is a real man of letters, with an intelligence as keen as a knife, and a knife was required to cut the knots into which Edward had tied his play, for very few could be loosened. The only fault I found with Yeats in this collaboration was the weariness into which he sank suddenly, saying that after a couple of hours he felt a little faint, and would require half an hour's rest.
We returned to the play after lunch, and continued until nearly seven o'clock, too long a day for Yeats, who was not so strong then as he is now, and Lady Gregory wrote to me, saying that I must be careful not to overwork him, and that it would be well not to let him go more than two hours without food—a glass of milk, or, better still, a cup of beef-tea in the afternoon, and half an hour after lunch he was to have a glass of sherry and a biscuit. These refreshments were brought up by Gantley, Edward's octogenarian butler, and every time I heard his foot upon the stairs I offered up a little prayer that Edward was away in his tower, for, of course, I realised that the tray would bring home to him in a very real and cruel way the fact that his play was being changed and rewritten under his very roof, and that he was providing sherry and biscuits in order to enable Yeats to strike out, or, worse still, to rewrite his favourite passages. It was very pathetic; and while pitying and admiring Edward for his altruism, I could not help thinking of two children threading a bluebottle. True that the bluebottle's plight is worse than Edward's, for the insect does not know why it is being experimented upon, but Edward knew he was sacrificing himself for his country, and the idea of sacrifice begets a great exaltation of mind, is in fact, a sort of anaesthetic; and sustained by this belief we, Yeats and I, worked on through the day, Yeats tarrying as late as seven o'clock in order to finish a scene, Edward asking him to stay to dinner, a kindness that proved our undoing, for we lacked tact, discussing before Edward the alterations we were going to make. He sat immersed in deep gloom, saying he did not like our adaptation of the first act, and when we told him the alterations we were going to make in the second, he said:
But you surely aren't going to alter that? Why do you do this? Good heavens! I wouldn't advise you—
Yeats looked at him sternly, as a schoolmaster looks at a small boy, and next morning Edward told me that he was going to Dublin, adding that I had better come with him. On my mentioning that I expected Yeats that afternoon, he said that he would write, telling him of his decision, and a note came from Lady Gregory in the course of the afternoon, saying that she was leaving Coole. Would it be convenient to Edward to allow Yeats to stay at Tillyra for a few days by himself? He would like to continue the composition of The Shadowy Waters in Galway.
Lady Gregory's request seemed to me an extraordinary one to make in the present circumstances, and it seemed still more extraordinary that Edward should have granted it, and without a moment's hesitation, as if Yeats's literary arrogance had already dropped out of his memory. Such self-effacement as this was clearly a matter for psychological inquiry, and I turned Edward over in my mind many times before I discovered that his self-effacement should be attributed to patriotism rather than to natural amiability. He believed Yeats to be Ireland's poet, and to refuse to shelter him might rob Ireland of a masterpiece, a responsibility which he did not care to face.
Extraordinary! I said to myself, and as in a vision I saw Ireland as a god demanding human sacrifices, and everybody, or nearly everybody, crying: Take me, Ireland, take me; I am unworthy, but accept me as a burnt-offering. Ever since I have been in the country I have heard people speaking of working for Ireland. But how can one work for Ireland without working for oneself? What do they mean? They do not know themselves, but go on vainly sacrificing all personal achievement, humiliating themselves before Ireland as if the country were a god. A race inveterately religious I suppose it must be! And these sacrifices continue generation after generation. Something in the land itself inspires them. And I began to tremble lest the terrible Cathleen ni Houlihan might overtake me. She had come out of that arid plain, out of the mist, to tempt me, to soothe me into forgetfulness that it is the plain duty of every Irishman to disassociate himself from all memories of Ireland—Ireland being a fatal disease, fatal to Englishmen and doubly fatal to Irishmen. Ireland is in my family. My grand-uncle lay in prison condemned to death for treason; my father wasted his life in the desert of national politics. It is said that the custom of every fell disease is to skip a generation, and up to the present it had seemed that I conformed to the rule. But did I? If I did not, some great calamity awaited me, and I remembered that the middle-aged may not change their point of view. To do so is decadence.

2023.04.01 13:19 AlohaFromMD317 First Time Season Pass Holder - Drink Plan Question and Food Recommendations Needed!

My family is currently weighing the Food and Drink Season Pass options. In terms of the All Season Drink Plan, we are currently leaning towards the Souvenir Bottle Option for $34.99. I am aware that this does not include Icee's. However, I am just curious if they will allow you to fill up your Season Pass Holder Cup and maybe pay a small surcharge to get an Icee? Like $1 - $2 for an Icee instead of full price? Or should we stick with the $50 paper cup option that includes ICEE's? I'm torn. I liked the idea of the Souvenir cup being 50% larger than the paper cup, but I can be swayed.
In terms of the food plan - what restaurants and meals are the best that are included in the plan? I haven't been to KD in over 14 years, so I would love to know where some of the best spots are and what meals I simply cannot miss!
Thanks y'all! See ya at the park!

2023.04.01 13:17 Quick_Tear_3600 Boys club interview help

This is a bit wordy but I’m venting and on the fence on what to do next. I had LO 4 months ago and returned to work full time 2 months ago. I make very good money and I’m in a niche field at the top of my game so I know my value. A couple weeks ago a friend approached me about needing some basic tech/social media help for their work. It’s a seasonal business for vacationing families and they have very little online presence. Said friend is the operations manager so the only person above him is the owner, who jet sets all over the world most of the time for other business ventures. Given the minimal effort it would take and the understanding that I’d work on my schedule around my current job, I figured it was just a great opportunity to help a friend out and make some extra cash. I agreed to an informal sit down dinner to discuss and drafted a one page sales pitch. The owner even agreed to let me bring LO.
Last night the owner, myself with baby, and my friend met at a local restaurant where the owner is close with the restaurant owner, who I’ll refer to as RO to avoid confusion. Owner began talking about app designs and the business goals right away. After 15 minutes of this, I politely interrupted and explained that I was not pitching app design or management but social media marketing and support only. He chuckled and said he understood but was just trying to “help me understand how business works.” My friend looked shocked but when I didn’t say anything, he opted not to interrupt and sat back and observed. The meeting continued with the owner mansplaining things to me and me politely correcting him here and there. Initially I thought this was some insane old school tactic to test my skills but it grew tiresome. Then RO sat down…
The owner and RO began talking about their home countries and how stupid Americans are about politics. It’s important to note that I work in government so my friend was very uncomfortable at this point. RO then turned and asked how I was enjoying staying home with baby. I explained that I work full time and was there for a second gig but that my husband stays home during the day. His eyes finally left my chest and looked at me in total shock. RO asked what I did for work which I summarized and he proceeded to completely ignore me from then on. I finished my meal, mentioned the food was always a little bland there and told owner we could meet this week to discuss further.
It’s easy money and I’d only have to meet with the owner rarely. Do I just continue or end it now? I feel I could manage the misogyny as long as we never do business at RO’s place again. Thoughts?

Girls' sadness and joy can also be entertained with a bottle of wine!
As night falls, restaurants and bars are bustling with excitement. Countless young people are here to celebrate, relieve their worries, and tell their inner stories. Looking around, most of the wine tables were filled with red wine. Countless young people lightly hold the crystal goblets, and the purple wine swayed gently in the glasses, everything is so natural and so elegant.
The melodious sound of the piano and the flickering candlelight gradually added to the peaceful night. Under the influence of red wine, these young people gradually entered a state of slight intoxication. They used the smell of wine to relax their tired bodies, and talked about life with their friends through red wine.
I asked them what kind of wine they drank, and they told me: "Of course it is Lei Sheng red wine!" I have heard that Lei Sheng red wine is very popular in the circle of literary and artistic youth. Then why do literary youths love Leisheng red wine so much?
"That's because Lei Sheng red wine is very artistic!" Literary youth A said. "This wine is endorsed by the famous director Zhang Jizhong. For a literary person like Director Zhang, the wine endorsed is naturally full of literary style."
"I choose Leisheng red wine because Leisheng red wine understands my heart best. Leisheng focuses on the high quality of wine, and every drop of wine is carefully crafted and full of deep emotions. There are many kinds of this wine, whether it is to entertain relatives or friends , a romantic date, a drink at home or a gift, everything can meet my needs. Lei Sheng red wine, like the roundworm in my body, can easily read my heart." Literary Youth B said.
More and more literary youths came to me and told me the advantages of Leisheng. In fact, the literary youth love Leisheng red wine, the most important thing is that Leisheng red wine is full of literary, fashionable and romantic atmosphere, and being accompanied by Leisheng can bring them a sense of petty bourgeoisie.
Choosing red wine means choosing a high-quality life. As a literary youth, petty bourgeois life is our pursuit. Let us let go of the distracting thoughts in our hearts, savor the fine wine to our heart's content, enjoy the smoothness and freedom, and feel relaxed and willful. As a literary youth, if you also like red wine, welcome to communicate with us.

2023.04.01 12:39 pworidjka I 29F don’t feel old, ugly, or undesirable for being single. I feel great!

I’ve had a rough life. Grew up in a homogenously Caucasian suburb as a first generation arab around 9/11. Things just got dark and very difficult from there. I faced exclusion, bullying, racism in the classroom and beyond, sexual assault, severe psychological and mildly sexual abuse at home, spent my 20s in a cycle of self depricating relationships with people who were just aweful to me and not working on myself out of love. I was lost and in so much pain. I went to a top tier music conservatory in the states but upon receiving my diploma, dropped the music career path to escape toxicity that was honestly just as damaging.
Before I tried to fit in. Deny and be ashamed of my ethnic heritage and looks. Please my parents. Whip myself like a horse trying to catch up in the classical music world because those opportunities were stifled by abusive and controlling parents who didn’t want me to do what I loved. I let people walk all over me and believed I was a worthless piece of ugly brown trash with nothing to offer.
It gets tough sometimes encountering that darkness within. But the town and life I now live in has a culture of friendliness. I love this place. I love my path that’s forming out if so much pain before. I’m learning to love myself and show up with love in every aspect of my life. In recognizing all this, the darkest parts of myself are so much clearer. I can have a better relations with those parts for the first time. It gets very hard sometimes. I’ll self harm in my darkest moments. But over all, I feel like I’m actually learning myself instead of before.
I am single. I live with my mom because I’m starting again. I go to the gym 4 times a week, read and study things I like, go out and see nature/music performances/beautiful small towns. I see a great therapist and another careelife coach, work at a really beautiful, small family owned wine cellar and high end restaurant where they treat you like a human and invest in sommelier training everyone. EVERYONE. It’s awesome. I’m making friends with so many beautiful people and I get to make people smile serving them amazing desserts and food. I’m getting to know myself. I’m so sorry for what happened before but I wouldn’t be this strong and wise if it wasn’t for the darkness.
The horrible beliefs I had about myself couldn’t be further from the truth. People now tell me how beautiful I am because they think I look incredible and uniquely beautiful in a sea of cookie cutter people. I love the way I dress. How much I inspire people to love and advocate for themselves because I exercise that strength every day. How smart and capable I am. I am capable of learning and changing. I’m so grateful for that. I’m learning a new and more sustainable happiness.
Relationships can wait. I don’t feel old and undesirable. Genuinely, this is the most beautiful I’ve felt in a long time and that beauty encompasses something far greater than being lighter skinned, skinnier, young, rich, blonde, white, put together, whatever things I told myself were the reasons nobody loved me or why I didn’t deserve to love myself.

2023.04.01 12:37 alanthecowboykill3r Advice needed on improving word count

I’m closing in on finishing the first draft of my first book where I have three character arcs, a couple of twists and a climactic ending and it looks like the word count will be just short of 50K. I feel like I have everything I need to make the story work but can’t seem to get the word count any higher and think it might be how I’m writing. An average scene (not chapter) is coming in at about 2000 words with some much less and wanted some advice on how to make scenes longer or what I could do to up the word count (more internal dialogue for example).
Below is a scene that comes in at 788 where we meet one of the main characters for the first time (Nisha) as she overhears some of the antagonist's plans:

It seemed to be about a posh lady having to pretend to be an even posher lady to fit in at a boat race but it was hard to make out over the noise of the kitchen. Somebody yelled at Nisha and she turned away from the TV.
'I can give this to someone else if you want, clearly you don’t need the tips,’ Chef said as he loomed over her in his whites. Speckled with food from a thousand dinners his jacket looked like an edible Jackson Pollock. Nisha was never sure if she should report the jacket to the council or frame it.
She looked at the ceiling. ‘No.'
'No Chef.’ Louder this time but still looking up.
'Good, take these.'
She held her breath as she pushed against the swing door that separated Chef’s fiefdom from the rest of the restaurant. She had done it hundreds of times but always expected someone to come the other way. She fixed her smile in the mirror before entering the private dining room. The room was filled with paraphernalia designed to soothe customers with a history that didn’t exist. Smiling sepoys, moustachioed white saviours delivering civilisation from the back of elephants, photos of English ladies in crisp linen teaching the gospel to willing ears.
The only table in the room could seat twenty but tonight only two seats were filled. A woman, facing the kitchen and wearing a bright red suit, and a man sat opposite, his clothes expensive but faded. A few years ago Nisha would have described him as old but now she would say early middle age. She was becoming all too aware that twenty-nine is a lot closer to forty than twenty-one.
'And then what happened?'
'I went down as far as his knuckle and he passed out from the pain.’ The woman's voice was slate, the result of a thousand years of breeding, it was designed to strike fear and respect into the population. The man laughed the laugh of someone who knew the other was buying dinner.
Crisp poppadoms were placed between them and Nisha poured them each a glass of pinot noir. She chanced a smile at the man who didn’t so much as look through her as fail to comprehend her existence. So much for the tips.
'Even if the food isn’t great at least you don’t have to worry about being overheard in a place like this.'

A bag of potatoes was dropped in her arms and Chef turned without waiting for a reply.
'Yes Chef.’
She thought of Chef as she peeled. The posh lady pretending to be a posher lady seemed to be involved in the race now, but Nisha had missed why.

The woman in red ran her finger around the rim of her glass as the man spoke.
'It if does what you say it does…’
Nisha approached with two plates of chicken tikka. The woman flicked her wrist and the man continued. 'Then it will just be a case of finding what triggers it in the body, stomach enzymes for example, and distilling it.'
Nisha topped up their glasses with more wine.
‘I’m glad you’re confident. We have a lot of tissue but I would hate to waste any.’
Nisha spooned steaming rice onto their plates and turned to leave. A hand grabbed her wrist, the woman leaned in and stared. 'Leave the rice.’ Nisha feigned confusion, gave a deep nod and placed the rice on the table with a smile.

She had fallen off the boat. Someone, maybe a friend, was trying to help her get back on board by lowering an oar. Nisha lent against the door frame leading to the alley and felt the warm night air on her back.
'Nisha! I swear to God do some work,'
'Yes Chef.'
She lost her grip and fell back in. Nisha smiled.

Plates hot from the heat lamp burned her hands as she passed into the dining room for the final time. She placed their creme brûlées in front of them and rubbed the heat from her hand onto her skirt while she poured the last of the wine.
'What will you do once you have all that power?' Nisha waited until they had ignored her the correct amount of time to show there was nothing else they needed before backing away.
'I think the issue with it at the moment is it’s spreading everything equally, like most things it needs some discipline, some direction. If we could focus it to benefit a few people, or a person it would be much better.'
'Then everyone would benefit by extension. Rising tides and all that,’ the man said as Nisha stood by the kitchen doors and listened.

2023.04.01 12:36 giantspacechicken Still stuck here in this bad place (vent)

Not seeking advice.
The urge is as strong as weeks ago, even tried going out and meeting family at a local restaurant. I could barely eat (appetite has been so bad for months i need to smoke something to eat, also it’s my choice and I’ve had multiple lectures, but nothing else works to get me hungry and it takes the edge off the thoughts).
Started to feel a tiny bit better for a bit but it’s kicking me again, the urge to end it, I feel like I’m starting to move past the despair event horizon. Knowing I can’t get the entire help I need, I’m too poor and the NHS said services I’m using are enough and they can’t offer help despite the hope I got from the nurse assessing me, sadly none of that help is available to me. I’m in mental illness limbo. I am trying something but this is almost a lifetime worth of stuff to unpack.
Sorry, suicide text services (also reddit only shares american stuff when you click that resource link when you’re worried about a redditor, none of those services are able to help at the stage I’m at. I need professional help. I need assessment and psychiatrist. I can’t afford any of that. I’m watching the NHS die to the point we’ve considered insurance but I’m unemployed and it’s hard to work as it is. So I’m also a burden on the system. I wanted a life and I never wanted to be a burden on anyone.
