2023.04.01 12:40 Impressive-Employ233 How do you take care of your mental health after picking?

TW: Mental Illness
Background: I had a bad relapse yesterday. I don't know if relapse is the correct word but that is what it feels like. I noticed my mental health really going down the drain (I suffer from depression and GAD) after a picking session because I know I have then landed myself a few days of isolation because I do not want to go outside or socialize because it makes me very self-conscious. I had plans with friends yesterday and was really looking forward to it but then my brain decided to destroy my face to the point I couldn't even cover it up.. I decided to be honest with them and tell them what is going on and that I couldn't join them because I felt mentally unstable and needed time alone. I do a little bit of commercial modeling and tomorrow there would be a little project with a fashion start up and I would've loved to be part of it but I just don't think I have the confidence to perform well so I'm thinking already about what to say so I can cancel it.
I fall into a very bad depression after picking and I wonder if it is ever going to end. I'm so sick and tired of this habit making my life miserable. I have cancelled plans so very often in the past because of it. I know, people will say just ignore it, friends will like you for who you are and I know they do BUT it doesn't help me with not getting in my head and being self-conscious all the time. I cannot enjoy my time with friends or family or pursue my dreams.
My question is how do you take care of your mental health after a picking session? What helps you the days after? How do you deal with socializing?
I go to therapy but in my country there are not really any therapists specialised in skinpicking or at least I haven't found one. I guess I just wanted to share my feelings here. Wish you all the best and hopefully we can all get through this! :)

2023.04.01 12:40 mvolkmar Surfboard rentals near Sombrio beach?

I am planning a trip to Van Island in July/August and would love to scope out the surf at Sombrio beach. I realize this isn't the best time of year for waves, but I'm a wimp in the cold and can't hack winter surfing.
Am wondering if there are any surf shops to rent a board/wetsuit nearby? Anything closer than Victoria or Sooke?
The ideal plan is to head North from Sombrio for the next lag of the trip, so it is preferable not to have to backtrack South to drop off the boards, and save 2 hours of driving. Any leads, commentary, or guidance are most appreciated!

2023.04.01 12:40 SeanPorno Advice on camping near Patrick's point

Going on a lengthy roadtrip with two friends this summer, will be the first time for us visiting the States. We are starting from SF and plan to spend the night camping on the coast before driving to Portland.
I saw there is a few camping spots near Patrick's point: Abalone, Agate and Big Lagoon Campground. I was wondering how packed this area usually gets in summer (We will be there in August on a Friday) and if it is reasonable to find a spot without a reservation, in which case we would try at the Big Lagoon first.
If you have camped at any of these spots or have other recommendations for the area, I would be happy to hear about it

2023.04.01 12:40 vaveacav About to finish a mostly useless degree that I abhor. I have no idea which way to go next. Advice would be greatly appreciated.

I don't know if this is the best place for this, but given that the end-goal is to have a satisfying career, I figured I might try this sub as well. I apologize if this is not the right place.
In a few months I will likely finish my degree in psychology (equivalent of bachelor level). I chose this degree because of the pressure around me even though I was undecided. In my country at least there is massive pressure to go to university right after high school so I picked the only thing that I found remotely interesting in the little thinking time that I had. To put it in short, I have come to despise most if not almost the whole realm of psychology and to top it all off, this degree is becoming more and more useless as the days pass due to it becoming extremely ultra-saturated.
I have no attraction/desire for most jobs in this field and to be frank, I'd have to go maybe even up to a doctorate level to even consider working in this field (otherwise there are little to no jobs for a bachelor level in this field). Still, I am 22 and have no idea what path to go on, and with university coming to an end one way or the other, I have to make a decision and I am at a complete loss.
A part of me tells me to get another degree in something more "useful", even though I have no idea what other degree I could choose that would give me a slightly better outlook without being something I'm completely underqualified for. While on paper I could probably apply (and successfully be accepted) for pretty much most degrees given the very good results I had at the end of high school (very relevant for uni admission in my country), most of what one would classify as STEM degrees scare me. I was decent in math, but not excellent by any means. As for other related subjects like physics/chemistry/biology, I was extremely bad to put it lightly.
I guess I could say some of my strengths are foreign languages (I speak 2 of them fluently) and humanities in general, but to put it frankly most humanities related "strengths" don't make one very employable in most cases. The education system in my country still very much resembles the one that existed in communism, which is "Do as you are told, don't ask any questions. If you make a mistake, you're a failure" and this didn't help me explore too much when I was younger. This is why I have no idea what I would actually like to do. I'm not really the adept of "follow your true passion" cliche when it comes to choosing a career, but at the very least I'd like to be able to know what I would be decently good at and not live my whole life hating my job. I've already spent almost 4 years doing a degree that I abhor in a corrupt university (long live Eastern Europe...) that I got a good taste of doing something you are not meant for repetitively.
At the same time I could drop the idea of going into yet another education stint, but I would probably be just as lost if I were to jump into the job market. Even so, the vast majority of options I'd have would be jobs that require little to no qualification with little to no chances of advancing over the course of time.
Before I make this too long, I'm going to mention I do have a bit of work experience in a different field (that requires my foreign language skills) and I did like working in that field. However, the kind of job I am talking about is intermittent and seasonal and I would not be able to rely on it for stability. It's a good side gig/plan B to keep the waters calm for a few months if things go wrong, but it cannot become a full-time gig in the forseeable future (due to factors completely out of my power).
If you actually went through my entire wall of text, I thank you. Any advice or idea would be immensely appreciated. Even random ideas of career options are encouraged. I figure that if I hear about options I have never considered, I might look into them and something might click.

2023.04.01 12:39 LuxiconBE a few questions from an expat

Hi there! I moved yesterday to Ann Arbor from Europe to work at the University of Michigan. A few questions which I want to pose to locals now that I have arrived are: (1) I'm looking to buy a second hand use car in place of my rental. Do you know decent dealers nearby? I have been using carvana and cargurus as apps to find good deals too. (2) Everyone drives SUV cars. I know this is the typical American experience, but given the state of the roads here, I doubt one would want anything other than a SUV. Right? (3) Mobile phone data subscription plans, which one do you advice me to use? I've heard mint mobile offers good deals, but I struggled to find a SIM card in any of the supermarkets down town.

2023.04.01 12:39 foursquare1247845 How Hoarding Advertising Impacts Consumer Behavior

How Hoarding Advertising Impacts Consumer Behavior
Have you ever noticed how advertising seems to be everywhere? From billboards and TV commercials to sponsored posts on social media, it's hard to escape the constant barrage of marketing messages that bombard us every day. But have you ever stopped to consider how this hoarding of advertising impacts your own behavior as a consumer?

What is Hoarding Advertising?

Hoarding Advertising is a form of Outdoor Advertising that uses large, often billboards, to promote a product or service. This type of advertising is most commonly used in busy urban areas where there is a lot of foot traffic, such as on sidewalks or in subways. Hoarding ads are usually placed near the point of sale for the product or service being advertised, such as in store windows or at eye level on shelves. Hoarding Advertising can have a significant impact on consumer behavior. This type of advertising is designed to be highly visible and difficult to ignore, which can lead consumers to take notice of a product or service they may not have otherwise considered. Additionally, the size and placement of hoardings can make them difficult to miss, which can prompt spontaneous purchases.

How Does Hoarding Advertising Impact Consumer Behavior?

Hoarding Advertising is a form of Outdoor Advertising that involves the placement of large, often brightly-colored advertisements on buildings or other structures. These ads are usually placed in high-traffic areas, such as near transit stops or on busy streets, in order to reach a large number of people. While some people may view hoardings as eyesores, they can actually be quite effective in influencing consumer behavior. There are several benefits of Hoarding Advertising, including: 1. Increased brand awareness: Hoardings are difficult to miss, which means they can help increase brand awareness and name recognition. If potential customers are repeatedly exposed to your company’s hoardings, they’re more likely to remember your brand when they need the products or services you offer. 2. Greater reach: Hoardings can reach a wide audience, including people who may not be exposed to traditional forms of advertising such as television or print ads. 3. Cost-effective: Hoarding Advertising can be very cost-effective, especially when compared to other forms of Outdoor Advertising such as bus shelter ads or billboards. 4. Flexible: Hoardings can be placed in a variety of locations, which gives you flexibility in terms of where your ad will be seen by potential customers. 5. Targeted: Hoardings can be placed near specific target audiences, such as those who live or work near the hoarding location. This ensures that your ad reaches the people who are most likely to use your products or services.

Strategies for Effective Hoarding Advertising

There are a few key strategies that can be employed to create effective hoardings advertising.
First, it is important to create a strong visual impact. The ad should be highly visible and eye-catching, using bright colors and an attention-grabbing image. Second, the copy used in the ad should be direct and to the point. It should clearly state what the product or service is and what benefit the consumer will receive by using it. Finally, hoardings ads should be placed in strategic locations where they will reach the target audience. For example, if targeting consumers who are likely to be driving, then placing hoardings along major highways would be ideal.


Hoarding advertising has a significant impact on consumer behavior and the way businesses advertise their products. It creates an emotional connection between customers and brands, making it easier to form loyalty with them. This translates into long-term relationships between consumers and companies – as well as higher sales of products or services. The use of hoardings also helps businesses establish brand awareness in local markets, further increasing visibility for the company or product.

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 12:39 tefhhygf Nmom sabotages my rides with family members because she can’t get my money

I tend to get stressed when it comes to my finances. I was never given advice or help from my Nmom because she was always after my money. She always opened accounts in her name for me so she can take the money I earn.
She wasn’t trying to help me in anyway. I didn’t know much about atms and as my Nmom refused to help me, I had to ask other family members just to get a ride to the damn bank. And search up how to use an atm.
One time my Nmom cashed a check I got for college as scholarship to fund my education. I trusted her to do it but she spent all the money on herself. I didn’t trust her anymore. Because of her actions I had to go to atms with other family members. I couldn’t trust her. If I looked away for a second she’d pull sometning sneaky.
As my mom got angry at the fact I won’t let the near my money she reached out to other family members to eliminate my chances of getting around and doing what I need to do. My Nmom told my family members to stop taking me places. They just listened to her without even coming to me about it. Talk about petty.
Even though I told them to still take me they would stick to my shitty moms orders. She isn’t even doing what’s best for me, she’s too salty cuz she can touch my money.
I would ask my fam to take me to the bank so I can open a credit card account but they wouldn’t budge. They would attempt me to make the account in their name for some damn reason. I guess that was an order made by my Nmom. If I gave them acees to mt account they could mess with my funds and transfer my money to my mom. It seems like that’s exactly what she wanted. I didn’t let that happen but I also lost rides :(

2023.04.01 12:39 schoonerlabs Herbs, Herx, Unknowns & Testing

Long story short, after years of chronic symptoms I saw a naturopath last month. She suspected lyme/coinfections based on the discussion and started me on 2 herbal tinctures, and discussed seeing how this goes for a month before going for testing with Armin Labs (since it isn't cheap).
(Systemic Antimicrobial Tincture #1 (Cryptolepis, Alchornea, Sida, Isatis) – 1 tsp three times daily with food in fluid. Start with a 25% dose and increase by 25% every 2 days if tolerated. Systemic Antimicrobial Tincture #2 (Chinese Skullcap, Japanese Knotweed, Houttuynia, Cat’s Claw) – 1 tsp three times daily with food in fluid. Start with a 25% dose and increase by 25% every 2 days if tolerated. )
I've been doing ok on them I think, aside from the horrid taste, but getting symptoms I think are herx especially when I go over 1/2tsp doses. Headache, stiff neck, fatigue, body aches, chills, and nausea primarily. Not the end of the world but not the best feeling, like I'm getting the flu but no fever.
That being said the unknowns of IF I have Lyme or a coinfection now go through my mind wondering if the current symptoms are herx or if the tinctures are just making me feel like crap on their own, and possibly not having Lyme at all.
If I knew the herbals are working then it becomes more horrible vs feeling worse for no gain.
I know testing is not 100% either so not sure what to do as a next best step??

Welcome back hombres 🙌 - a lengthy wait for the days effort by fuck haha - apologies ✌️. As mused there last week - Dad's Schedule has filled with aplomb... and for sure - it feels good 👊. A wee whiley it's been sure - but Dad can thankfully report that pish is going terrifically and much hope is had for ongoing wonder. Terrific 😎. Maybes it's the experience with patience Dad possesses - Dad has maintained a positivity that shit'll be ok; life'll no let Dad down ultimately... too much terrific to be stifled or whatever shite. Catcalls from cunts to give up... you fucking give up you dullard cunt - Dad certainly doesnae want or need your shite opinions. Such deflective methodology spells out a desperation in a cunt that Dad finds as pathetic as anything; deflective in the nature that there's many many weaknesses in folk who press on with an agenda of cuntery - it's a headscratcher for sure. But here - without these kinds of bellends, the truly wondrous amongst us wouldnae be as obvious. the bigger problem, is that worldwide - the bellends are taking over. So it's with that in that Dad plows on, allowing the bellends to display their bellendery in full colour. Dad may no be making the kind of cash money deemed potential at earlier stages - but at least there's a unremovable sticker placed on the foreheads of several cunts. Now, readers of DWT can save themselves valuable time, by not engaging with those Dad hath exposed as fuckwits. A valuable lesson nestled in there sure: if the obvious goal isnae realised - search deeper for alternative nectarous nuggets and you shall find many 🤙.
All good stuff sure ^ - and without doubt, one of lifes funner pastimes, that being talking with likeminded hombres about the deficiencies of pricks. Just what causes Dad a smidge of disappointment, are those that talk a good game for a bitty, then spoil it all with musings about being a disgusting hateful arsehole in whatever way. Much like Dad experienced as a younger lad - you think maybes a bit of chemistry is going with a nice lassie... next thing you're watching on as a 'mate' decides to accept the offer of the lassies request for a smooch. That sense of feeling abandoned by your own receptors can really dent the confidence... decisiveness can be tainted beyond repair, if not handled humbly. Has Dad been guilty of removing oneself all too quickly? Maybes some would argue aye... but here - Dads content as is; complicating pish by introducing intermittent bouts of nastiness isnae summat that has any intrigue. Which is easy to say if there's a trampline underneath to cushion the blow. Thankfully - Dad has such a provision much the time, the now being a prime example. Took a whiley to iron out - but for sure, now it's here, it's with a touch of knowing... Dad Knows where and when he can assist with pish 👍. And that goes beyond just being great at picking pish up professionally; tyhe reaction of folks that now exist alongside Dad have been tearjerkingly honest about the value Dad has introduced both to the setup and their own lives - laughter they didnae realise they were still capable of producing has found a voice from deep within their soul. Same for Dad sure... forgot almost what it's like to be in an environment chock a fucking block with mirth and whimsy; always that dirty black stain of uncalled for pathetic nastiness infecting the good time. So aye - we've mused at length over several weeks and months about the value of comfort and a state of zen... Dad - tentatively given the length of time passed - has found it 🫶
Great that ^ - the discovery of joy... and right afore the sunnier climes arrive to facilitate basking in warmth. Dad expects the subject of emotion to be on the agenda oft going forth - such is the expectancy that things'll be supportive of such a framework. And yet still there's 'better' to come theoretically - the brevity with which Dad gushes about the experience being had, really sets up a premise whereby Dad could potentially be greeting on a daily basis. Overawed at the wonders being enjoyed, the offers being made... the opportunities created. No only all of this - potential there also, to become a cunt embroiled in music once more... and I tell yous - been a fair old fucking whiley since that was the fucking case. Didnae even have to lift a finger in effort either - the olive branches were extended and Dad took a hungry bite out the leaves. Easy fucking peasy... and the kind of action that fills Dad with that confidence that only such an offer can create. Onrushes of delight coarse through the veins at the very thought of what again may be possible. Artistry is a tough cunt to master, regardless of your preferred outlet. The world is peppered with those who possess the gift to just jump aboard the train and immediately understand what's required... even if sacrificial at times. Dad - for whatever reason - hasnae received the reassurance required to take a proper plunge steeped in dedication. Any hint of such action - egg has adorned the face. Thusly - the desire dwindles. Next thing - decades have gone by without any sign of recovery. That on its own, creates a deep appreciation for the value of chemistry and workability. Rest assured - Dad'll do all he fucking can to take advantage 👍. Fucking terrific 😎



A fucking disaster last week sure... trifling odds for an institution more accustomed to prices way up there in the clouds, yet not a fucking penny gained back. Dads Eyes were wide by fuck - fury teasing to out itself with an energy uncontrollable by mortal man. Fortunately, Dad possesses a skillset that vacuums up the madness and redistributes it as gas (farts and belches). No to say there isnae ill-effects... too much more and we'll be getting prescribed medications - and Dad hasnae any more room in the pillbox - ah no. Reddit Running Total (RRT) currently sits at -£817.95. Ah no.



Welcome to The DWT Statistic Collection 🙌
DWT Statistic #102
April Fools Day the day as we all know probably - and officially our first April Fools DWT. Historically, April has been a loss-maker… but encouragingly, an upward trajectory that will result in profit if the groove remains steady. Terrific.
See you next week, for yet another addition, to The DWT Statistic Collection 👍



I'm not promoting it in the slightest to be put on; it's purely to be completely transparent about where the beans I'm spilling are being pushed towards – this is after all, a Life Experiment: Can a useless old arsehole prosper under strict weekly gambling conditions? Word of warning; prior to this – not really. The sticky clarifies - but just to reiterate - here's the format...DRS20 is Dads Recommended Spend: £20. This is a lot of money granted - and I would encourage absolute apprehension if this sort of money represents life altering for you personally if zero is returned. I’m lucky enough to be able to afford to lose £20 in a week; but confess that if I got no return for say, 20 weeks in a row - I would likely be without something I value (a streaming service or summat). I don’t take it lightly. Four bets are placed with this outlay: a £5 Treble (DWT) and three £5 Doubles. Generally if two come up, the bet is covered (up or down £2 or so). As of DWT100 - we here at DWT now splash out an additional 15 bangers on the Singles. Regardless - DRS20 remains. I would NEVER recommend spending yet more on this if you have been a regular DRS20 utiliser... if owt - spend less 👍. My gambling prowess is pretty much a joke; so whilst I advertise, I in no way qualify them as a given. I’m a prick with plenty bollocks to spout is all. This is how I frame it.



So here it is - the one that takes the energy of April Fools Day and tranfers it into an entity that has become accustomed with jokes and ridiculousness:

It's DWT149

DWT REPRESENTATIVE Opponent Kick-Off Time Odds
BRENTFORD 🟡🟢🔴🟢🟡 brighton & hove albion 🟢🟡🟢🟢🔴 15:00 GMT 17/4
NORWICH CITY 🟡🟡🔴🟢🟢 sheffield united 🟢🟢🔴🟢🔴 15:00 GMT 6/4
SHREWSBURY TOWN 🔴🟢🔴🟡🟢 charlton athletic 🟡🟢🟢🟡🔴 15:00 GMT 2/1

38.38/1 we get for this selection – terrific 😎

Over 10’s last week; over 38's this week - back to the choppier waters... and in a strange sort of way, the thrashing of water constant at ones porthole, offers that familiarity that was perhaps no quite as potent there last week. No to say the success has been apparent up in the higher climbs... but you know Dad: if theres a cunt to be made of summat, it's worth doing with fucking aplomb 🙌

DWT149 - The Doubles



BRENTFORD up first then - the miracle that is Ivan Toney, the initial component for inspiring Dad to go with a team who've 'overperformed' for much too long a period to even be called overperforming tbf. 1 defeat in 9 - that being to a resurgent Everton at Goodison - form that tells you they find magic much the time. No to say there isnae owt to be wary of with todays opponents brighton.... 1 defeat in fucking 11 by fuck - hoo mama. But yon speculation over De Zerbi and the Spurs job - or just in general that he'll be on his way to bigger pish soon enough; there's a slip-up awaiting probably. Great price regardless - this weeks Keystone: time to bring home some fucking bacon 🤘
NORWICH CITY the next set of heroes to be gusher over - a win today pretty much essential in terms of keeping the drive towards promotion going. Auto-places seemingly out of reach, given the gap - the mission one to reach the Play-Offs. No more solid a statement than beating the top cunts - and with a home crowd there to help, Dad sees a victory today that'll drive them on towards besting the likes of Blackburn, Millwall and Luton to the fourth spot - on paper the pinnacle of whats possible in the current circumstances. No win in three and only two goals scored... there'll hopefully7 have been an extra layer of determination in practice. Time to roll out the plan of intent 👍
SHREWSBURY TOWN complete the trio - themselves still hunting for the Play-Offs much akin to Norwich afore them... albeit with a chunk more to do afore that seems possible, A game in hand on many above sure - but even at that theres a couple victories required to close the upsettingly wide gap that's appeared. They dinnae lose often sure - the rec ent duo of defeats both away and both to teams above them in the league. A trip for them today alas... but only to Charlton, who havenae won at home in five fucking attempts. Complacency aplenty people - expect our lads to prosper like fuck 🙌



So there we have it – nostalgia, hope and determination all apparent in equal measure. This time we do it right; wind in the sails – and off across the ocean in search of new worlds. A powerful pirate ship hunting high and low for treasures. Raise the fucking flag - the Good Ship DWT is back and ready to provide for its crew. If you play; play safe. DRS20 as always people. Frustration at the amount won, is better than the heartache at the amount lost.

2023.04.01 12:37 Exponential_Eight Recommended that current position be upgraded from GS-5 to GS-7, likelihood and process for it to happen?

During this year's annual FOIA training, it was stated on a slide that headquarters were recommending Records Disclosure Office Automation Assistants be upgraded from a GS-5 to GS-7, based on the amount of responsibilities. This got me really excited at the possibility of a raise, but I also know not to expect anything when it comes to the government. I've been in this position for 2 and a half years now, so I should be eligible for the upgrade.
Does anyone (most likely HR-related people) know how the procedure would take place? Would people way high up have to sign off on such an upgrade? Or maybe it would be similar to a desk audit.
Hopefully someone has information to shed some light on the likelihood of this happening. For now, I'll consider it a pipedream haha.

2023.04.01 12:37 bigbramble The role of a holy priest?

Why is it that despite being the original archetypal healer class Holy priests are always mediocre or plain bad? I don't understand why they always seem to be this jack of all trades class where nothing is ever actually good? Surely this should be the best or at least one of the top healers consistently as it's the original, flimsy, cloth wearing heal class? I'm not a priest main, haven't played disc since atonement was wrecked at the end of mop. I have just always found this puzzling as I'd genuinely like to play a good holy priest.

2023.04.01 12:37 Crav3s Anxiety?

What's going on?
I had an IEP in school 6 through 12th grade. I had reading comprehension issues and I struggled in math but I do fine at reading now.
I often wondered if I had an intellectual disability but my therapist said in order to pass my CNA (I got certified in high school) id have to be average to pass. Is this true?
I called the school recently and asked if I had to be evaluated and they said not necessarily, they said the teacher would have to make judgement call on it. And my mom said a lot of kids were on it at the time. I was in normal classes and settings it's just a few classes I was in a lower end of it (math and I took a reading class). I missed a lot of school as well and fell behind so that did it as well. ADD runs rapid in my family as well. The teachers never said anything about having me tested for an intellectual issue, I just fell behind and struggled a lot in math.
A teacher in school knew my sisters and told them he wrote a letter recommendation to a day vacation they offered in the iep. I hope he didn't tell them I was in a IEP at school.
My oldest sister was in those classes due to her ADHD. My family is filled with ADD. my middle sister also struggled my mom said she said "she got through with a smile".
I missed a lot of school. I passed my CNA with a B. I took the state test and passed. What if my friends know.. and everyone knows that I'm slow and they don't say anything... I hope they think I'm smart. I work in the hospital, my mom said they wouldn't have hired you if they thought you couldn't do the job.
Is my therapist right? That I'd have to be average intelligence to pass my CNA exam?
I had a reading class, in English class I was in normal classes. Science class I kinda struggled in but it was a mix of IEP students and regular students.
Math class I took a algebra course but it was an alternative setting. Same with Science class sophomore year. Some classes were alternative settings. But math and reading I had an IEP for.
So I'm slow, it sucks. I can't believe it took this long to figure out.My mom took my out half of the year in 4th grade also, which could've been a time where I fell behind. Then she put me back in cause I wasn't learning or paying attention to her.
This has ruined my life. How can I go this long without knowing? My friends and family have to know... I'm sure they talk.
Makes sense as to why men never take interest in me.
I did go to community College for a few weeks, had to take standardize tests on certain subjects. I didn't do hot, but I did it rather quickly as well. I tend to do that and have major anxiety on tests.
Lastly, I missed a lot of school... like my mom had to go to court over it. So maybe that's why? I'm thinking if I tried, studied and went everyday I don't know how it would've went. Maybe I wouldn't of had to even been in those classes. See with my CNA I didn't miss class, so I got a B. But it's common sense. I passed in high school (the state cerification) I know some girls who didn't pass. Doesn't mean they aren't smart, I'm just saying. Is this anxiety like my therapist said?

2023.04.01 12:37 Leather-Ad-8828 [PH] [BotW] Which video game should I play ??

Hello my fellow Zelda fans, I am actually looking for a new Zelda to play, and I would love to know if you would have any recommendations to help me find one that I’ll love.
I already played at Zelda Phantom Hourglass, and I absolutely loved it!!! It was the best video game I’ve ever played in my life and it is kind of underrated for me. What I loved about it is I think the whole story of it (with all the different isles that never look alike), the designs and the complexity of it (with so many things to do!).
I also played at Zelda the Breath of the Wild, I really enjoyed it a lot but it wasn’t as good as Phantom Hourglass.
Thanks for your help!! 😁

2023.04.01 12:37 Idonthaveanaccount9 Gaggia Pressurized Basket Flowing Too Fast

Got a GCP and have an order for the Timemore Sculptor 078s, but for the next 2 months, I’d like some espresso.
I have a bodum grinder that I found a ‘mod’ for that actually makes it stepless and suitable for espresso, but that won’t be here for another 2-3 weeks.
Seems like I’m stuck with the pressurized basket for the time being. I’m dosing 18g, but if I stop it at 36g, it’ll be like 5-10 seconds. This is with the bodum at the finest setting (pre mod since it’s not here yet). I thought pressurized basket meant you didn’t need a nice grinder, but even with the best I have possible, it still seems bad.
I’m considering buying some preground illy. Some reviews make it seem like it’s made for the gaggia. And frankly, I like the taste of illy. Is this silly? Will I get same results?
