There are several anxiety/depression/suicidewatch subreddits out there, but I wanted to create something that's a bit random but still related. If you need advice, to rant, to post art/poetry/prose/your life story, make a meme, just tell us about your experience so we can benefit. I and hopefully other members have suffered from a mental illness and am willing to share my experiences.

2023.06.01 21:00 SanDisko Gun owners from an immigrant background getting into American gun culture

I think those of us from immigrant backgrounds come at 2A and the gun culture in this country from a different perspective to most other Americans. Most of our parents come from countries where gun ownership is discouraged and restricted, where only the wealthy can even hope to own guns and where there is a predominant culture that says 'common people' shouldn't own, or aspire to own guns. Even though you can find people who are interested in shooting and firearms, the barriers are very steep. So, in America its not something we're born into, unlike other Americans who've been here longer, its something we adopt.
I grew up in Louisiana. My mom is from the Middle East so she always found American gun culture alien and bizarre and is ignorant about guns. She's not fanatically anti-gun, but guns don't have a positive connotation for her mainly because of all instability in the region. She's always taken aback at how 'easy' it is for any ordinary civilian to buy a "military rifle" from the store. She never gets why someone "needs that much ammo".
Though I'll always be grateful that when I was able to, she trusted me enough to keep my guns and ammo in the house, in my room, while I still lived with her, especially since I had a difficult upbringing and I didn't always behave the best in school, getting into fights and being around some sketchy people. She always knew I was interested in guns and shooting (I had bbguns as a kid) and she wasn't going to keep me away from them forever. So, as a teenager, she would send me to my uncle (my dad's brother) who lived in a rural area, where I would do some work for him. He would teach me how to handle and shoot real firearms safely and with respect. He had big enough land that one could shoot on it, which made going there a bit more enjoyable. For her, if I was going get into guns, better that my uncle initiated me than someone else who would be roguish and lead me down a bad path.
My interest with guns wasn't political. It didn't have much to do with frontier heritage, or my daddy taking me hunting, or as an emblem of identity, as would be the case for many (white) Americans. My mentality at the time was simply "guns are cool; shooting is fun!". Despite not really getting the 2nd Amendment at the time, I just thought it was the coolest thing ever that I lived in a country where I could buy a wide range of guns, however many of them I wanted, as much ammo as I wanted, from a store and just start shooting it at a range. It felt even cooler after the expiration of the Clinton era assault weapons ban in 2004. My mom always thought that my interest in guns was evidence that I really was an American. lol While I did run into sketchy bigoted types, especially in the immediate aftermath of 9/11, on the whole, at the ranges I went to when I was younger, people liked the fact that I as a 'newer' American was getting into firearms. It was like a point of pride or something.
I can't speak on behalf of others, but I would think that there are gun owners from an immigrant background who find 2A as a kind of novel, forbidden freedom they wouldn't otherwise be able to exercise anywhere else.

2023.06.01 21:00 No_Variety_4997 Finally updated to the new network, no service at my house. Wtf?

Visible has been sending me texts and emails for months now telling me to update to the "new network".
I avoided it for as long as possible, but they sent an email last week saying I have to update now, the old network will no longer be supported.
I live in a medium metropolitan area in the mid atlantic. No reason should not have service, any carrier always has service here.
I've restarted my phone like 5 times now. Put it in airplane mode and back on. No luck.
I don't have service at my house....that's a big issue....posting this from wifi right now.
I've been with visible for years and never had any issues. I was scared to update cuz that "what if" and now I've updated and basically confirmed, I'm fucked. Anybody have any ideas or tips?

2023.06.01 21:00 Spartawolf Galactic High (Chapter 72)

Okay everyone. Chiyo began, as all members of the household settled down and sat cross legged in a circle in the living room. We're going to try out a guided meditation. It should help with stress and anxiety, and it's really relaxing! Start by gently breathing deeply through your nose, and then keep repeating this until the guide tells you what to do next…
It was getting late in the evening, and Jack had only returned about an hour ago, having very much lost track of time before he finally made his way back. He had a little trouble finding a path back through the districts despite being able to use a marker on his commlink to pinpoint the location of home. The hot tub, which was slightly larger than Jack had expected, had been mostly finished by the time he arrived. However, due to several employee absences the team leader apologised and promised to finish the last of the plumbing the following afternoon after the group got back from school, which Alora quickly planned out with them. Sephy had swept the area for any possible bugs or electronic tags an undercover enemy could plant, but had fortunately found nothing.
A few of them looked sceptical as Chiyo put on a guided meditation program with some relaxing music in the background, which to Jack sounded like the most bizarre series of timbres and pitches unlike anything he had heard. It had the peaceful, slow quality of meditative music from earth, but it still jarred him somewhat due to its unnatural nature.
Still, he tried to follow Chiyo’s instructions as the Ilithii floated back to the circle to sit next to Sephy, who already looked like she was having trouble concentrating, though she made the effort for Chiyo’s sake. Next to him, Nika was already controlling and slowing down her breathing along with him, both of them semi-used to the concept of meditation already, and it looked like Alora was doing something more akin to prayer. The twins and Vanya seemed to be able to cope enough as well, all having some kind of magical ability that required some basic kind of mental concentration.
“Now, bring your attention to your physical form…” The soothing voice of the instructor gently called out over the background music. “Feel your body pressing into the surface beneath you, and take note of any areas of tension or discomfort…”
“I’m well aware of my injuries you dumb bit-” Nika grumbled before Chiyo psychically reminded her to be quiet during the meditation.
“Do not try to change anything with these sensations, merely observe them…”
Relax Sephy… Chiyo quietly told the Skritta, who was slightly fidgeting. Try not to overthink it!
“Now return your attention to your breathing, noticing all the sensations as you inhale, then gently exhale…” The voice continued. They did so, though by the sounds some of them were making they were overdoing it.
“As you continue to breath, bring yourself mentally to your peaceful place. This could be any location that brings you a sense of tranquillity and relaxation. Now imagine yourself in this place, surrounded by the sights, sounds and smells that make it special to you…”
Jack’s mind brought forth an image of home. His mother, his father, his brothers, his sister, his grandparents all surrounding him. He was safe, he was with his family. He had his whole life ahead of him…
And it had all been taken away from him.
Jack squirmed involuntarily as his mind was dragged back to a dark place, his grief threatening to overwhelm him again…
“As you bask in this tranquil scene, allow yourself to let go of your worries and concerns that may be weighing on your mind. Imagine them fading away, leaving you at ease…”
All the faces of the people he would never see again stared at him coldly, judgingly. He had committed acts of horror he never thought he would ever have to commit. Even if there was a chance he could return to Earth, could his family even recognise the shell of a person he had become? What would they say?
“When you are ready, take a deep breath, and as you exhale, slowly open your eyes, and reorient yourself with your surroundings. Carry this sense of calm and relaxation with you into the rest of your day…”
As the guided meditation came to an end Jack quickly got to his feet to get a drink.
“Jack, is everything alright?” Alora asked him in alarm.
“All good.” He lied. “My legs are just a bit stiff, and the meditation was a bit hard.”
“Yeah I get what you mean.” Sephy used her wings to help her kick up. “I don’t really understand the whole ‘sit-and-do-nothing’ thing to be honest, it’s like I need to be actually doing something. But hell, I still gave it a go…”
Thanks for trying it anyway Sephy! Chiyo smiled.
“So what do we do now?” Nika asked everyone, as Jack returned with some canned drinks for all of them. “Still got a few hours before we probably need to go to bed."
“Nothing exhausting, please. Let’s just watch a movie?” Alora suggested after a few seconds of nobody contributing anything.
Perhaps some of our new housemates have a suggestion? Chiyo asked, looking to Vanya and the two Squa’Kaar, who hadn’t been confident enough to suggest anything as the newest additions to the household.
“I’m only a temporary housemate, I still have my own place.” Vanya smiled softly. But maybe WageMage?”
“That’s a good classic to start with!” Sephy grinned. “Have you seen it before Jack?”
“Can’t say I have, the Temple of Hope didn’t really have movie nights.” Jack reminded her with a smile. “What’s it about?”
“It’s basically a comedy film about an office worker that uses magic to get ahead and prank her bosses!” Vanya told him. “But you really need to watch it!”
“I’ll get some snacks.” Alora called, quickly grabbing a few bags of sweets out of one of the cupboards while the others tried to get comfortable on the sofa. It was large enough for all of them…just about.
“We should probably go furniture shopping at some point.” Sephy pointed out the obvious problem. “Especially if you’re gonna offer refuge for those that need it, Alora.”
“Damn, well, we are gonna hit a few of the rubbish heaps and scrapyards for materials we can use to fix up the shuttle, and anything else that we could use for home improvements.” Nika reasoned. “We even got this sofa from one of them though it was a bitch to drag all the way back here!”
At least we have more people that could help now. Maybe even more depending on who joins us. Chiyo added. Because I remember helping you spend half the day dragging that here, and I swore never to do manual labour ever again!
“Well, perhaps we can find a better way this time.” Alora concluded as she came back with the sweets while everyone sat down, and took a few blankets to warm themselves up with. Jack took one of the ends of the sofa so he wouldn’t be squished between two people this time, and Vanya was quick to sit next to him, even putting an arm around him, which he wasn’t opposed to. The thick, warm brown fur of the Chuna made him feel comfortable, and he subconsciously leaned in and relaxed.
“Ooof!” He grunted, as Sephy sat on his lap, pulling the blanket over them and cuddling up to him. Jack reflexively put his other arm around her to keep her in place, lamenting that he could no longer reach for the bag of sweets until Chiyo telepathically sent one his way.
“Hey Chiyo, could I have one as well?” Sephy cheekily asked the Ilithii.
Sure! Chiyo agreed, sending another sweet floating towards Sephy, before pinging it off her forehead,
“Ow!” Sephy grunted as they started the movie.
Jack appreciated the humour and plot of the movie, with the hapless office worker using magic to explode her boss’s tea, and accidently making her manager believe his wife was cheating on him, only to later discover that she actually was. He could see why this movie was a favourite with the girls, though he didn’t know if it would be well received on earth. Though this film was well written and amusing (despite him not understanding much of the humour), he could imagine it being received as too woke back on Earth. When the plot eventually evolved into the protagonist trying desperately to avoid the investigations of the alien equivalent of ‘HR’, it really ramped up the humour, which had even him chuckling on occasion.
However he was more subdued as the others laughed freely at the shenanigans, his mind going back to the horrible experiences he'd had, and his grief from being separated from his family. Yet all around him, like a beacon of hope was a home full of friends having a good time with him.
Could he get used to this?
Yeah. He thought he could.
Svaartal snarled as his arms ever so slowly pushed the weighted bar up, feeling the burn in his chest and arms as he repeated the motion, over and over, his heart pounding as he pushed himself to lift more weight than he had ever lifted before with his natural strength. Forcing himself beyond his limits, he felt his muscles straining as his breaths became more and more laboured. He knew he was overdoing it, but he didn’t care. He was determined to become stronger, more focused, more powerful. He had Carrow watching over Svaarti, so this gave him the opportunity to really cut loose.
Devil’s Daughter would come for him and Svaarti again. He barely won their previous encounter and it took all he had to stand a chance against the raw power of her spells. Next time he would be better. He had heard the words she spoke to his sister, calling Svaarti a thief, though as far as he was concerned, if his mother looted the Golden Staff during the Demonfire War from the Stygians, it was hers by right of conquest. Not that the Devilspawn would care. If Devil’s Daughter was going to target him, Svaartal had no doubt she would attempt to do so through his sister, so he needed to be ready.
He had been pushing himself harder and harder ever since he first faced Frost to a standstill in that ambush, fully expecting to face him again soon, especially after the Drow of House Mal’Kar recruited him. He had been thoroughly changed by that experience, and he suspected the Outsider was changed by it too. From open hostility towards one another in their first week to caution in the next, it was a strange dance the two of them did.
But now?
Something about the Klown attack had changed him even more. For just a moment the two of them had fought side by side for a common cause, and though he did strongly consider it, he didn’t stick with the human. Despite that however, the words Frost told him certainly stuck with him.
Help me stop them.
And he did, didn’t he? He stopped to rescue several of the trapped partygoers and had cut them a path to safety, only to then decimate the Klown numbers with his most powerful spells. He had been considered a hero of the battle, alongside Frost himself and the dragon-bitch that officially kicked him out of the Red Legion. In a strange way, it felt…gratifying?
‘Though the greatest hero that night may not recover from her sacrifice…’ Svaartal thought to himself sadly. Why, Svaarti?’
He got up from the bench and slowly slunk over to the tension cable, cranking up the weight as high as he dared. Taking a deep breath he grabbed the handle with both hands and pulled, yanking the cable over his shoulder before releasing, then doing the same exercise over his other shoulder.
His memories of his fight with Devil’s Daughter came back to him, though he cursed not having a recording so he could better recall. Many of his actions had been instinctual, so much so that he could barely remember what he even did in several instants. He was fortunate that he kept a versatile array of spells prepared and ready for use in any situation, though it was his blade and quick thinking with his illusion and spacial magic that allowed him to slip through the Stygian’s defences.
But though he focused on the fight, her words still rang out in his mind.
‘Why the hell do you hate my people so much?!’
Dumb question. The Devilspawn killed his mother, and even after the Demonfire War many of their kind went rabid, committing horrific acts on innocent people, just the same as they did when Azazel, Lord of Torment was still alive.
But something about the sheer hurt in Devil’s Daughter’s expression tugged away at the back of his mind, like an itch that wouldn’t go away. Perhaps it was…
He was interrupted by the noise of someone approaching. Letting go of the handle, the cable he was pulling quickly snapped back to ping against the weights as he collapsed to the floor, his body dangerously overheated and his breath coming in ragged gasps. He quickly activated the enchantment of his Riverspray Ring, sending out a cloud of cooling mist that instantly made him feel slightly better.
“Good evening, Dextra.” Svaartal greeted the drow politely as he slinked over to where he had left a towel.
“Hey.” She replied, before something caught her eye and she pointed to his bare back. “What happened there?”
“What do you mean?” Svaartal stiffened at the sensitive question, having an idea what Dextra was referring to.
“By the gods…” She muttered. “Your scales are cracked and fucked up, and you’ve got a lot of scars, how?”
“I am aware that my scales need grooming.” Svaartal replied tersely, trying to be patient with the inquisitive drow despite the sensitive subject. “However I did not have anyone to teach me how to do it growing up. If it displeases you I will attempt to rectify the issue…”
“I’m not my sister, so you can shut up.” Dextra snorted. “You’ve got a fuckton of scars too, that can’t be good for you…”
“It is not.” Svaartal growled in anger before he quickly steadied himself, realising he was talking to a Drow Noble. “My apologies Lady Mal’Kar, what did you wish from me?”
Dextra snorted at the sudden formality, but she paid it no mind as she showed him her commlink. Displayed was a NetTube video from a channel by the name of ‘DevilLover69’.
“What is this?” Svaartal asked, confused.
“You might find this kinda funny!” She grinned, and played the video, the thumbnail of which displayed a medium sized, overweight looking being with pinkish-brown fur, a long cone-like trunk, huge grey bulbous eyes and thin, spindly arms.
“Ahem, attention everyone! Listen up, for I have a message for all of you! Recently, I have heard rumours that somebody out there has apparently defeated my beloved waifu, Devil’s Daughter, in combat! Let me tell you, that is something that will not go unpunished! I have spent countless hours defending her honour online, but now I have heard the call, and The Supreme Gentleman will step up and avenge her!”
“I’ve been training hard all this time, inspired by the queen herself! I’ve watched all of her fights, and I’ve practised martial arts on my Devil’s Daughter body pillow! So I hope the killer is watching, because I’m ready, and I’m coming for you! And I promise you, when I defeat you, you will wish you had never been born! I’ll see you on the streets, punk!”
“Pretty funny right?” Dextra asked, as Svaartal gave a slight grin.
“I really hope that’s not a troll!” he chuckled.
“Well if The Supreme Gentleman is legit and if he comes for you, it’ll give the others a good laugh.” Dextra giggled. “And…um…I could try and help you with the scales if you want? The datanet should have some videos and I could do your back if you want?”
Svaartal considered it for a moment, knowing where this would likely end up. He had not been requested by Izadora tonight, who seemed to be particularly busy with House Mal’Kar business, and they had never been anything more than casual so he had the freedom to do as he wished.
“I don’t see why not.” The Nirah shrugged, as he followed the bubbly drow to her chambers.
“He’s her son.” Grandmaster Ilvella told her with a sad look on closing the door to his quarters. “I knew it the moment I saw him, though I couldn’t believe it.”
“What?” Nya exclaimed, having broken protocol and immediately followed her master to talk, with Rena trying to stop her. “Not a chance! There’s no way! They’re nothing alike! He’s evil, he can’t be!”
“I knew Svaarvali for a long time.” the Grandmaster sighed, drained from sharing his painful memory. “Even if he didn’t resemble her physically, there were subtle things I saw in just those few moments meeting him that could only have been from one of her line.”
“Are you certain he is not a different relation to the Saviour, Master?” Rena asked stoically.
“I am certain.” The Grandmaster nodded, closing his eyes. “But irrespective of how I may feel on the matter I will not sacrifice everything we have built for sentiment. Our plans do not change.”
“What are your orders, Master?” Nya tentatively asked.
“Do not engage this…Svaartal under any circumstances, unless in self-defence, and maintain your civilian cover.” He strictly told them both. “He will no doubt expect Devil’s Daughter to retaliate soon if she is able, so we will be patient and wait. I have not seen this Svaarti you are familiar with, but it seems like she may be more receptive than her brother if she is able to recover. If she does, continue to be her friend and get closer to her.”
His gaze then returned to the steely look Nya was used to from her master.
“However, Devil’s Daughter must be sighted soon, unharmed and doing something good to restore the people’s faith. A few days of inactivity will be expected before you must return, and with luck we can completely obscure the truth of your defeat as mere rumours.”
“I don’t think Head Whisperer Ratai has anything recent, save for the possible signs of the latest Killer Klown attack.” Nya reasoned. “And Scholar Volus is still deciphering what was discovered at the Pallid Pit, though Jack and his group have not relinquished the Gloom Cauldron they discovered as far as I am aware, which had ties to the ritual room, and which they’re theorising might have worked as some kind of beacon, though for what I have no idea.”
“I am sure we will find something.” Ilvella concluded. “Perhaps you and Rena can discover something in your civilian lives? The Outsider for one certainly seems to be a good source of trouble. Regardless, you two are dismissed. Heal up and rest early. You have school tomorrow.”
With that, Nya and Rena took their leave.
“This is…” Rena began.
“Impossible.” Nya snapped. “I refuse to believe it.”
“Nya…” Rena gently called to her, understanding the Stygian’s pain.
No, Rena.” Nya snarled, causing the usually stoic Vulsta to take a step back in shock. This wasn’t like her friend at all. “I should have killed him when I had the chance during our fight, and now I learn he’s related to the Saviour? Her son?!”
“You have another chance in the future.” Rena pointed out. “And you can lay the groundwork for that by preparing and training. Taking a loss like that is difficult, but it can be a blessing if you learn from it.”
Nya looked at her friend conflicted, and Rena was glad that the stone corridor of the monastery was deserted.
“Yes.” Nya sighed as she let go of her anger and returned to her normal self. “You’re right. I’ve taken losses before and I’ve come out stronger. I even faced the Killer Klown himself and sent him fleeing, so the problem isn’t necessarily my abilities, but my mind.”
Rena nodded calmly, seeing that Nya was pulling herself up. “And what is your next move?”
“The Grandmaster is right that I need to make a quick reappearance as Devil’s Daughter.” Nya began, sounding more like her usual self. “The Cult of the Destroyer would be an obvious target but the ones at the Pallid Pit were wiped out when my friends decided to go there for some reason, though at least we were able to kill the Stygian masquerading as me and tarnishing our people’s reputation."
“As a civilian I am already friends with Svaarti.” Nya then reasoned. “And unlike her brother, I can actually believe her being related to the Saviour. I can only hope that she wakes and recovers from her arcane backlash. I did talk to her in astral form, so I have faith.”
“So what will you do now?” Rena prompted. The coolly composed Vulsta still expected an answer to her previous question as Nya closed her eyes to think.
“The Whisperers might have something for me.” She decided. “Though there was clearly nothing worthy of Grandmaster Ilvella’s attention, maybe they have something smaller or less reliable I can use to at least been seen by the public.”
“That would be wise.” Rena agreed. “You still need to heal.”
The Chamber of Whispers was set on the ground floor of the monastery, hidden away and far from the entrance or anything else. Following the subtly different pattern of dim lights, the two quickly made their way to the hidden underground bunker that served as their resident spy headquarters.
“BWAH! I knew you’d be up and ready for more work in no time!” A jovial voice called out before they had a chance to knock on the doors. “Hello to you too, Rena!”
“My footsteps were silent…” Rena muttered as they entered the room.
Upon entering, the first thing that struck Nya’s attention was the sheer number of lights illuminating the chamber, bathing the entire room in powerful brightness, and allowing for no shadows to form in heavy contrast to the route they took to get here. Then she focused on the huge table in the middle, with a large map projection of Naganai City, complete with many extensive annotations on several notable districts, and with one of the Whisperers compiling a report on the Pallid Pit.
The walls of the room were lined with the blue glow of several monitors, either displaying popular all-day news outlets or with investigation boards on notable personages. In one of the side rooms Nya could see one of the monks at a console talking away on a headset, likely tapping into the community’s small network of contacts in the city from the safety of their remote system.
“Nya!” Head Whisperer Ratai grinned as the chubby Stygian waltzed over and gave her a gentle bear hug that still lifted her off her feet. “I’m glad you’re back! We’ve got news but it’s not urgent, so you should probably rest…”
Ratai gave her a knowing wink.
“What’s new Ratai?” Nya smiled, used to acting familiar around the man despite his high position.
“HAH!” The Stygian chuckled. “We mostly have reports of the post-klown cleanup, but a few players have already made their moves. Nothing too big but interestingly I’ve received a reliable rumour that our Outsider friend decided that massacring the klowns wasn’t enough for him and was involved in liberating a thinly populated swamp district."
“He’s claiming it as territory?” Rena asked, suddenly alert. “He may be more of a threat than I had initially warned…”
“No, no.” Ratai’s grin got wider. “Nobody seems to have claimed the land, but interestingly enough Clan Ashtail seems to have rehomed the vast majority of the population, and they seem to be sincere in allowing them to rebuild and recover in their newly annexed territory.”
“Do you consider Clan Ashtail a threat?” Nya asked.
“Of course!” Ratai snorted in amusement. “Vetch Ashtail was the one who all but hinted at the damnable rumour in his last correspondence to me, the smug bastard! His clan plays the game well, but there are many other more nefarious groups that will attempt to take advantage of the chaos. I'm particularly concerned about what Corvin Enterprises will try to do, but if they are planning on making a play, which I am almost positive that they are, then they are being very subtle about it.”
“Anything immediate?” Nya asked.
“That admirer of yours was quick to post a new video!” Ratai teased, causing Nya to bury her face in her hands in embarrassment.
“Don’t remind me.” She groaned. “That guy is pure cringe and you need to stop mentioning him to me!”
“Hah! Well I haven’t gotten much within the city itself, but we’ve found a series of accounts online about gangs trying to run protection rackets and establish themselves as local powers. Maybe you can crush a few of the weaker ones to make an appearance as you recover to full strength?”
“Nya will still need some time to recover.” Rena cautioned. “But if we approach this like any other mission and I act from the shadows, it will be fine.”
“Excellent, I shall begin my delving and let you know.” Ratai smiled. “In the meantime, you kids should go to bed!”
“I wish I didn’t have to.” Nya sighed.
“I didn’t exactly have much of a weekend.”
And with that, the weekend is over for our....heroes?

Very friendly, I've had a very wide range of roommates, have no issue with guests, and just like to keep things fairly clean. Feel free to PM me if you'd like to chat or ask me whatever.
Looking for 1-2 roommates, I'm working out of Hudson Yards so I was mostly looking at upper east/west or pretty much anywhere affordable downtown, max budget for myself is ideally 2k. or if anyone is offering a room or a studio I'm open to that too. Move in no later than for the 2nd week of July. Preferably looking to live anywhere for at least 1 year.

2023.06.01 21:00 mgwhid Watching Someone Else’s Baby for Money

I’m looking for advice from those who’ve watched others’ kids alongside their own for some income. Especially if they were babies. I’ve seen it suggested on here a lot, but I haven’t really seen anyone go into detail about how it works. (If there’s already a recent post like this that I’ve missed, please link!)
I have been talking to my friend about watching her son when she goes back to work in August. By then, he will be 3 months old and my daughter will be 14 months old. It will be for 4 days/week minus holidays and breaks for the school year (her job is at a school).
I’m most curious about how to approach pay. How do I decide how much to ask for? I want to give them a good deal that’s cheaper than other alternatives, but reasonably, of course.
Should I charge by the day? Week? Hour?
Also what are the pros and cons of going through the legal channels versus getting paid under the table? I assume they’ll want to get their tax deduction, but I’m curious if that’s the only factor. How should I keep track of the income and handle taxes if we go that route? An app? Should I use something like or do they take too much of a percentage to be useful in this case?
To be clear, we haven’t yet discussed these logistics, so I don’t know what they have in mind, I’m just contemplating for now.
Any other advice? I imagine I’ll go to their apartment, at least at first. I’m not sure if I should ask for a car seat base or just stay within the walkable area, etc. I know I can cross those bridges when I come to them, but if you have any pertinent experience or thoughts while you’re here, I’m happy to hear it.
My friend has already insisted that it’s no big deal if I change my mind at any point, and we both have pretty chill demeanors, so I’m not too worried about potential negative effects on our relationship, though obviously this arrangement will change the dynamic. I just want it to be as easy and beneficial for everyone as possible.

2023.06.01 20:59 tommy3kx Looking for a gaming PC that is able to handle stable diffusion AI, and light photo editing. (Photoshop, or similar). Gaming will mostly be FPS, and things like modded bethesda games, rimworld, and a few AAA modern games.

Hi, so I'll start by saying I have ZERO knowledge of building a PC. I am great with laptops and laptop/electronics repair so I'm certain I can do the hands on parts no problems. It's the knowledge of which parts are best that concerns me. I don't care if it has tons of lights, LEDs, or whatever "looks coolest" I only care about performance and prefer a case that isn't white. I've looked through recent posts and have found 1 that seems similar but the price range was higher than mine so I wanted to post my own.
Thank you so much in advance!

Budget $800 to $1200 (Lower preferred)
No OS needed.
No peripherals needed.
Overclocking is a possibility if necessary
I'm in the USA in a California desert with temps hitting 100° regularly.

When it comes to gaming I'll be doing a lot of things like 7-Days to die, Skyrim, Fallout NV and 4, Project Zomboid, Rimworld and a few AAA games such as Call of Duty, Apex Legends and what not. All heavily modded. (graphic quality doesn't have to be ultra or extremely high)
Since I will be doing a lot of AI stable diffusion as well, i'd prefer something that has an Nvidia GPU, however this is not necessary, just a big want.
I'll also be doing a bit of photoshop and graphic design, but that much I'm not worried about because I have a laptop that is more that capable of these things just fine.

My budget isn't solid, but I would definitely prefer something in the range of $800 to $1000, but if it's gonna be game changing, then up to $1250ish if needed.

I'm not too sure how accurate the "Can you run it" website is, but i've used it for years to check if my computers can run certain games and there's always the little bit that shows you which PC's they recommend to run 99% of games. I know prebuilt is a huge price increase, but would anyone recommend a build like this? If I was to do it myself of course.

2023.06.01 20:59 Legitimate-Rabbit-82 Choosing another rent place

Hi, I've been living in a 2 rooms apartment for 2 years, paying 200€/month, with a 1000€ salary. This month I got a promotion at work and I will have a 1600€ salary.
The place where I am living looks bad and has roaches and other insects coming constantly from the neighbors.
I want to move out, I am a 24 years old male living alone with no friends, working from home in Bucharest, with plans to leave the country before winter (to Slovakia, and i have a few salaries worth of savings to cover the accomodation expenses).
I tried looking at apartments online and most of the decent ones are at least 300€ going to 600€. I found a good looking 2 rooms apartment for 400€ but I don't know if it would be a good idea to move there, from the finances point of view.
Would it be ok to pay basically double for the rent considering my salary? Should I instead struggle more staying here with the roaches for a few more months until I'd try to leave the country?
Thank you in advance for any replies.

2023.06.01 20:59 phoenixc6000 GTA 4 isn't all that.

Basically what the title says, Do I think it has a good story? Yes. Do I think it has a good open world? Yes. And do I also think Niko is the best GTA protagonist? Yes. Can't also forget the physics. And I also do appreciate that it definitely changed GTA for the better with the hd era. But aside from my positives with the game, I find this to be one of the most overrated games of all time and here's why.
  1. Awful driving - Seriously, this game genuinely has one of the worst driving mechanics I've seen and played in a video game. When I drive this game, it feels like I'm driving on ice and feels very slippery. I do understand what they are trying to do and make it seem realistic and what came down to was terrible driving.
  2. No checkpoints in missions - This part honestly just makes no sense. 4 was the first game to be on the Xbox 360 and PS3 and considering this was a mechanical improvement over the pervious installments, This part is definitely frustrating and makes no sense. Like you can be so close to beating a hard mission but once you die or something you have to start all over again.
  3. Repetitive and boring gameplay - I'm not sure if this specific opinion is unpopular or not, but I find 4's gameplay to be repetitive. I feel like the gameplay shits the most after when you beat the game. At times its just repetitive and boring to play and it's just not fun to play.
  4. Lack of what to do afterwards - I know what you are going to say. "Maybe cuz you play too much gta 5" "Lol you're just saying that because you play too much gta 5" Let's take a look at a game like San Andreas, You can buy property, work out in the gym, barber shops, train your skills, etc. And those things I said you could do in San Andreas you can't do in GTA 4. And as a matter of fact, some of the things I said you can't do them in GTA 5, so that doesn't apply.
5 - Annoying fanbase - I'm aware that most fanbase can also apply to this and this has to do nothing with the game itself, but that still doesn't make 4 any better. Most of the GTA 4 fanbase are assholes. If you say you prefer 5 or San Andreas, or even any game for that matter than 4. Watch, they are gonna start downvoting your comment, cursing you out, and would probably start spamming your dm's, Hell, I got send a threat from one of those wild animals. So that speaks for itself.
In conclusion: GTA 4 is overrated and this is coming from a big GTA fan. People always call this game a masterpiece and 'the best Rockstar game' but for me, I think it is incredibly overrated and doesn't deserve to be called a masterpiece. GTA 4 is just a 7/10 game at best and repetitive, dull, slow, and boring game at worst.

2023.06.01 20:59 Public_Club2099 Advice for Animation School? (In Canada)

I would like to work in 2D animation and/or storyboarding. I am currently taking classes through The Animation Course. I'm just wondering where to go after I graduate?
Are community college programs worth it?
Would I be off taking online courses like Animation Mentor, CGMA, or CG Spectrum?
An in person 1-2 year program like VanArts offers?
Or should I try for a degree with a school like Emily Carr or Sheridan?
My ultimate goal is to get in with a big studio like Disney, Pixar, Dreamworks, etc... So what is my best shot at that?

2023.06.01 20:58 Nervous-End-9382 Should I ask for a raise?

Salary Negotiation Tips
I have been at my current company for 1 year, working as a contract administrator. My manager approached me as one of our team mates is retiring soon and he’d like for me to train and take over her responsibilities. My initial reaction is hesitancy, because I will be going out on maternity leave in October and I’m worried about learning a new job before I leave and being on my own when I get back. The manager is supportive though and would have me train with this person right away if I agree and hire someone to take over my responsibilities while I train which takes that workload off. I’m taking some time to think about it, but I need to talk to this employee and see if her day to day is a lot different than mine. I don’t think it will be much different after talking to another team member with a similar position to hers. We work hybrid and I have a lot of flexibility to WFH if sick or my toddler is sick/daycare is closed. My background is as a dietitian (BS and MS in Nutrition, 7 years work experience peaked at $56k at a large teaching hospital) and I transitioned into this role and found it delightfully less stressful, more flexible work environment and greater compensation (16% increase) than my previous role. While I’d like to grow my skills I worry about losing the flexibility I have with when and how I get my work done. Anyway, one of the things that might help me make a decision is a salary adjustment. We haven’t gotten one this year and with another child on the way and having two in daycare, things are getting expensive. Plus, this person has been at the company 20+ years and from what I’m told handles the more high dollar contracts; they want to give this to someone they can trust. I appreciate them saying this but want to make sure I’m making the right decision for my family (flexibility, compensation) but also for my future career options (learning new skills). What do people suggest? Do I have a case for asking for a raise with this new role even without a business degree and 1 year experience? Edit: my location is Durham, NC and the cost of living (like most places) is increasing with some big name tech companies moving in.

2023.06.01 20:58 boiwhatdahellboi123 My boyfriend (20m) has a feeder kink. Am I (19f) overreacting?

My boyfriend (20m) and me (19f) have been dating for almost a year now. Half way through the relationship a girl on tiktok said something like "ladies go through his reddit history". I didn't think much of it, He had never done anything wrong and was honestly perfect. Until i found out he had a feeder kink. He had never told me before. I am pretty small. Im 5'5 and was 110lbs at the time. When i confronted him about it I found out he was also on websites like curvage and stuff like that. It really hurt, I almost broke up with him but decided to try and forgive and forget. Well fast forward to recently. We started roleplaying it. I am actually now 135lbs and not because of him, but also because I am on birth control. I want to make clear that he has never force fed me or anything like that. So last night, I woke up. About 3am. I was bored, couldn't fall back asleep. Well something told me to check his reddit again. Which was weird. I usually tried to fight off my insecurities like that but it was so strong. So on his hidden history was a TON of new videos and pictures for feeding kink. I was obviously shocked and hurt. I woke him up and confronted him and up until I literally showed him, he denied it. I consider stuff like that cheating and he knows how hurt I was when I found out the first time months ago. He cried alot and even threatened suicide. Not sure how serious he was with that but today he brought flowers to work for me and has been apologizing alot. Just like the first time he was caught. He promises that it was just a one time thing. He said he wanted to think about me being that big. I don't know. I am open to the idea but I feel betrayed. What should I do?

2023.06.01 20:58 vertigosaint90 My Encounter With Mr Boots

Okay, this will be a long post but I hope people will stick with it and give me their honest feedback. I've been considering posting to this Subreddit for a while now, but I'm really rubbish at using Reddit! I want to tell people about my encounter with a somewhat notorious ghost and how to this day, I can't explain what happened to me.
Back in 2019 I attended the Edinburgh film festival and it was my first time visiting the city. I had an amazing time, and one night I decided to take some time off watching films to do some tourist-like activities. In the hostel where I was staying I saw a leaflet for the Edinburgh Vault tours which I thought would be fascinating as I'm a serious history buff. If you don't know what the Edinburgh vaults are they are are a series of chambers formed in the nineteen arches of the South Bridge in Edinburgh, Scotland which were used to house a number of different businesses until they became a shelter for the homeless (more info here). The tour was a 'Ghost' tour of the seedy part of old town in Edinburgh, and despite having some slightly paranormal experiences in the past, I felt pretty confident that I could handle going on my own.
The first part of the tour took place above ground and to be honest, it wasn't particularly great as it was the middle of June and despite being around 6-7pm, it was sunny and bright which didn't really create the right atmosphere. The tour guide led us to the entrance of the vaults, which we entered through a normal building and down a flight of stairs. Before, we went into the vaults, she told us to make sure our shoe laces are tied (I double-tied my laces as I didn't want to trip up as the floor was very uneven).
This was where the tour really started to get interesting. The guide told us about the history of the place and the ghosts that apparently reside there. One is Mr Boots, who is an evil spirit who can be heard stomping around in boots. The other is a small boy that attaches itself to women he considers to be a 'motherly' figure and he likes to grab their hand and is known to untie shoelaces. The un-named boy is apparently scared of Mr Boots. As a tour group, we walk from room to room as the tour guide recounts different stories of ghostly encounters.
We enter one room where there used to be a fireplace, which the guide is in front of. In the archway there's a couple and I'm stood next to them facing the guide and the couple. I decide to take a photo of the guide and the couple when suddenly behind the couple I see this man.
I've never seen a face full of so much hate and evil in all my life. I can't even find the words to describe how menacing they looked, their face looked twisted with hate. They looked human. A tall figure, wearing a long black coat or a cloak, wearing a top hat. They had white pale skin. The figure wasn't transparent, but solid.
The moment I saw him, the entire left side of my body went numb and cold. And, I mean cold as if that side of my body had frozen. I felt something yank at my left hand and I pulled my eyes away from the figure in the archway to look down at the left hand-side of my body. There's nothing next me, no-one pulling on my hand, and when I go to look up Mr Boots is gone. Thank God!
The guide starts to move everyone to the next room, and I seriously don't want to walk through the archway but I know I can't stay in the small room any longer. I go to move when I look down at my left shoe to see the shoe lace is undone. Only, it's not just undone. The shoelace looks like its been wrapped around someone's finger and they have piled it on top of my shoe. I can't help but gasp out loud and call the guide over. She looks at it baffled and says she's never seen that happen to anyone before! I don't know why but I was too scared to tell her about seeing Mr Boots, because I felt like I couldn't tell her like I would somehow get into trouble? I felt like I was suddenly back to being a little kid.
I wasn't the only person in the tour group to have a paranormal experience. There was this big body-builder type man who clearly thought the whole tour was just nonsense, he was stood in a corner of this room next to a wall just minding his own business when suddenly he jumped and looked behind him. Apparently, he heard someone clap in his ear but there wasn't anyone behind him and no-one in the group had clapped.
I'm nearly at the end of this story, so thank you for sticking with me so far. The last bit is what happened to me back at the hostel when I returned after the tour. I had been sharing a room with a few other girls and I re-telling my experience (minus seeing Mr Boots because I thought no-one would believe me), the girls thought the tour sounded really interesting and we chatted for a bit about Scotland in general before I decided to go to sleep.
As I was lying in my bunk (which was on the bottom), I was suddenly overcome by that feeling of being frozen and paralysed again like I had experienced back in the vault. My eyes were half open and I could see the two girls still talking sat on a bed. I remember wanting to call out to them but I couldn't. I don't know how long I was stuck like this but eventually I found that I could open my eyes fully and I could move again. I didn't sleep for the rest of the night.
If people are interested in some context, I have always had strange experiences on the left hand-side of my body. What I mean by this, is that whenever anything paranormal happens, I feel a shiver go down the entire left hand-side of my body. You know, that feeling you get when someone walks over your grave? Well, that's what I feel. When I was three I was involved in a terrible accident where my dress caught on fire and I was badly burnt. The part of my body most affected? The left part.

2023.06.01 20:58 uhoh-zahra I thought I was fine but I bursted into tears when my teacher asked me if I was okay

Idk where to start I'm surprised myself and kinda disappointed rn, I'm currently studying very hard hoping I get what I want at the end of the year, it is supposed to be the hardest period I'll ever have to deal with academically speaking.
I'm working hard I'm doing my best, i say i have discipline issues and I have a hard time to feel grateful some times but I mean that's how life is and it's normal for me to feel this way from time to time, all in all i thought I was doing a pretty decent job.
But my teacher after class asked me how I was doing these days l, and i also think she got worried bc I'm the only foreigner student in my class and in two years I only got to see my parents one time.
She asked me to stay strong and that I've done so much already, she said I was a brave girl and that I'm getting really close to my goal I need to keep it up and go on, because I've worked too hard to give up now.
And here I am crying and crying unable to stop and even when I try to think hard about it I'm not even sure about why I'm in this state and idk what to do about it now I'm kinda lost.
What the teacher said had a big impact on me for sure, now that I'm writing I'm thinking maybe it's not the right sub to talk about this but at the same time it's something I need to get off my chest so yeah idk lol Maybe at the end it was words I needed to hear in a way, or maybe idk it triggered something in me that made me feel not fine anymore idk idk
I just needed to talk about it and express my frustration before going to bed haha

2023.06.01 20:58 Notsurewhatididwrong Want to shout out a hidden gem of a North Jersey organic food joint: Fudgarten

I spend a lot of time in Fort Lee and a few months ago I kept seeing this little “fast casual organic eatery” place near Cafe Bene where I’d usually go for coffee. The outside of the eatery was really unassuming so I had passed it up until one day I was hankering to try something new and I remembered the place.
Boy, was I glad I went there! I had a burger with potato wedges and IDK what it is about how they cook it but it tasted so fresh almost like I was biting into steak instead of burger. There was a nice slight charred flavor, with guacamole and jalapeños and a few other toppings that did not “scream” in my face with crazy overpowering flavor but rather was quite light and pleasant on the palate. As weird as it is to use a term like “refreshing” to describe savory food, that’s the best way I can describe it. The burger was so fresh that I felt really good and light after eating it (as opposed to some places where I eat and feel bloated/sweaty).
Not sure if it’s their ingredients or what but Fudgarten has sandwiches and bowls and shakes and a whole host of other things I have yet to try. I usually hit them up like twice a month and it’s been very consistent. It describes itself as “fast casual” and I’d say it’s close to that — it’s a bit slower than say a Chipotle but it’s definitely not long like ordering at a sit-down restaurant. For the quality of the food, I found it to be really worth it.
It should go without saying, this post is not sponsored or anything. In this world where it seems like every big successful restaurant is somehow associated with some kind of corporate chain, I like bringing attention to small unassuming places like this that are true and honest to what they purport on their cover and don’t really try to be more than they are. I have no idea if this place has been known/talked about for a while and I’m just only now discovering it, or if people just don’t know about Fudgarten, but if you live in Bergen County I’d recommend the trip over to Fort Lee to try it. Plus, they have their own parking (thank God!).

2023.06.01 20:57 Nox_Coxen Help me with a name

Warning, long post. I think to help me with the name you should understand the characters very well so I will have to shortly tell the most important parts about these characters. So I have these 2 characters I really like and their names are mostly taken in games or social media which is pretty sad. Though at the same time they don't really have a name which makes it good, because I can name them, but that's a different struggle. so here are the characters:

Noximilien/Nox: This character I admired since childhood. Noximilien Coxen from show called "Wakfu". Noximilien is a Xelor (race of humans that are good at mechanisms and have time magic{mostly very weak time magic, but not our boy Nox here}). SPOILERS AHEAD. He was a normal guy making clocks in his house and living off of that, but everything changed when he found a cube containing "wakfu" (energy by which literally everything is made of). Name of the box was Eliacube, made by the oldest and strongest race, the cube was a mechanism meant to help the original owners in war, but in Nox's hand it was just a cube with massive amount of energy and storage of that energy. The cube drove Nox crazy, it made him concentrate only on the box itself and that way he lost his family. But after realising that the box had so much potential in it he started gathering energy in it to run back in time and change everything, and so, save his family. He didn't age because he used a bit of the energy all the time from the box and had amazing powers such as stopping time in whole world for a period of time, stopping specific creatures, rewinding time and speeding himself up so much that it seemed like he teleports from place to place. I won't tell more about him, because that's not the point here and I told the important part, but you can find out more about him by watching the show, it's on netflix I believe. (He's not the main character btw). So I want a name for this character, I've been using nickname "Nox" since childhood, but didn't want it to be connected with that character, but rather wanted it to be similar. I want a name for him that will be connected with time, energy, godly amounts of power or just something epic. Latin names sound good, but I couldn't make a choice.

PumpkinHead: PumpkinHead is a character I had even before Nox and It's my own character, not from any show, not taken or stolen or even a shared idea. I simply liked the idea of a character with a pumpkin on his head and used to create him since I was 3. The character is really important to me, as I'm even writing a book about him just for the fun of it. As for it's characteristics, It's a soul, evil soul. It was one of the few creatures that were created by gods and devils. Like when there were Adam and eve, as well as the snake, there was a soul of PumpkinHead. He didn't have a body neither he could get one because he was trapped by God as the existence of his soul was a mere accident, he was created from a massive amount of energy that fused when the first war of gods and devils happened ( before the creation of humanity). He wasn't created evil, rather became one in life. After just merely existing for centuries as a soul trapped in literal nowhere he was still growing the energy, by consuming it from gods and devils itself everytime they clashed, or had any fight/battle for humans. ( something like: he gains energy when there's a fight between good and evil in each and every living soul). After a long time he broke out and started chasing for a body to live in, bored from existence he was trying to find the best physical corpse for himself. Sadly he couldn't do it, because as soon as he ran away both gods and devils had to chase after him which would lead in a great battle (if he found a body to use), but because he couldn't they had to trap him again, though this time the place between time and space was not working. He broke the 4th wall, the cage he was trapped in for eternity was not able to contain him anymore, so the only thing left to do, was to destroy him. But as you guessed by now you can't destroy a soul, because it doesn't exist and exists at the same time, it can't do anything and nothing can be done to it unless it has a physical body. So the gods tried to find a body in which they'd put him in and destroy to get rid of it. They chose... you guessed, a pumpkin. Why? because it's a fruit, it can't do anything, can't be used unless it's given the ability to do so and PumpkinHead doesn't know how to because he never lived yet. Placing him in a pumpkin first time resulted in an unexpected outcome. It exploded. The desire for him to live was so big that a fruit, not living thing couldn't hold him. Magic comes in handy and they enchant the pumpkin to hold the power and again trap him in it. This time it worked, but how unfortunate, the fact that the pumpkin was enchanted to hold him in, also gave him understanding of magic and that way, with immense amount of energy in him, he used to turn into magic and enhance himself to be safe. Took a lot of power from him, but he lived! Since then, because he lost so much energy and used it on defending himself, he couldn't change a body, he was stuck in this form of a pumpkin unable to change, but he realised he could use it as an artifact. Artifact to control other living creatures. Anything that would come in contact with it would lose a soul ( by his choice ) and be replaced with something else. Another unfortunate moment was that there was no body to steal. At least, for a picky soul like his that wanted only the best life. At some point he gave up on it and just chose to go with whatever came first and it came out to be a hungry PIG. PumpkinHead first time feeling, breathing, living, was excited and amazed by the greatness of life. He wanted to feel more, he wanted to see more, taste more, smell more, and just find out everything in the world. So on his journey he changed many bodies, from a pig to cat, from a cat to dog, from a dog and so on until humans evolved into much more intelligent creatures and he stopped on them. Knowing so much about the world after living for centuries, he was petrified when he found out it was just the beginning of his journey. [The post will be too long so I will round off from here] he changed many bodies ( he had a pumpkin on head first but he could just be in a human body as a replacement for its owner. At first he had the pumpkin, but then he stopped using it as it was creepy for people ) and as he did so he learned much more about everything and most importantly, human nature. The one and most important reason he became evil. The amount of evil he found even in the brightest souls was so unamusing that he hated them, he hated humans for ruining themselves. He thought they were the most complicated, the chosen creatures. They could reach any point they would like, but the only thing stopping them from it was themselves. He hated them for being so unaware of their power and magnificence, but respected them and loved them as they were the only reason he could ever reach his goal. As for personality he chose a witty, wise and Ironic persona. Gentleman of a style and delicate as of whole. Sometimes acting like a child, wanting to do the weirdest and silliest things, but knowing when to be serious and always understanding the situation. Evil, but good, silly but intelligent, Ironic but a respectful gentleman, powerful but non-aggressive.
I thought that a name "Laplace", like "Laplaces devil" would fit this character because Laplaces devil is a theory of a creature that exists everywhere, all the time, lived everything and knows everything. Knows every single atom in the universe, where they are and where they have been at what time. That's just because it's similar to a goal of my character. But other ideas are interesting. Thank you for reading till the end and If you have any questions please comment.

2023.06.01 20:57 yurizs sudden death

one of my sisters two suddenly passed today. we don't know the exact time, but we think it was within an hour of finding her.
she showed absolutely no sign of sickness neither before nor after passing. her fur was as usual and she laid as if she was only sleeping peacefully.
my sister is genuinely one of the best piggie moms. they had a spacious cage, fresh veggies every day, pellets, unlimited hay & water, and so much love from my sister. she has even spent a lot of her own money on cage stuff for them (she's a minor but not a kid, hence why i mentioned it being her own money.)
she's heartbroken and seeing her like this is absolutely gut wrenching. two of our previous piggies have passed similarly out of the blue and of a very similar age (almost 3 years old), but those two passed before we knew how big of a space that should be provided, so i guess i kind of assumed that was partly to blame for their sudden death.
i just wanted to know if anyone else has experienced anything like this with similar circumstances. my sister feels so much guilt and is convinced that it's her fault because she hadn't had the piggie out of her cage in a week since she was busy with school.
any responses are appreciated <3
