2023.06.03 05:52 OppositeAd9067 I need help figuring out what I can do to clear my mind.

My ex and I split up 5 months ago after being together for 3 years. I believed I was fine without him, but after we talked again, he was the one who contacted me again.
We chose to be pals again because we had been in the past, so I didn't see any danger in doing so, but I had no idea it would be a perilous decision I made while momentarily mended.
I realize I was stupid, but I also miss having him as a friend. We split up healthy, with no other concerns. really we went out since he wanted to see me, and I invited him as well. Everything was really peaceful. We used to play games every evening until midnight while on call, and you can tell there's no reason for me not to fall in love again.
I'm getting anxious, I can't keep my feelings in check, I try to be brave, but before I performed the confession, I asked myself many times if I'm really sure, and I responded, "I think I'm really sure."
I stated that "my feelings are slowly turning back" and he stated that "internal feelings like what I have in the past with him?"
and he said he is not willing to take any responsibility for my feelings and yet he said that we can use my feelings of having a crush on him when the time is right that made me confused and he said that he can be my friend without crossing the line everything he said made me confused.
also, I said ok I can't take that, that would only hurt me and he said no need to go away because once we took the risk again like in our past it's like a gamble. I tell him that we should stop chatting, and it's been three days, and I'm really missing him.
I question him about whether he played on my emotions and took advantage of me.
and he said, "Somehow but not my intentions?" Sometimes I think he's simply uttering those words to keep me but is now willing to do it...

2023.06.03 05:52 Accomplished-Ice-222 Announcement 34(or 35)

I am gonna edit when I find out which announcement number it is. I thought about skipping out on a motivation quote for today as I have no idea which category I would use for Friday. Also, because I forgot to post earlier, instead of Plankton's Calendar memes, I am going to use Plankton Strain for Day 2 today.

2023.06.03 05:52 Biologicalphenomenon Unexpected

We kissed today. Completely unexpected. It was like coming home. The easy banter that lead up to it, absent for the time we spent apart, roared back to life as we talked.
I kept saying ‘I should go’, which we both knew I should. The longer I stayed the more likely we were going to be magnetized to each other. The light faded, and the shadows of the trees turned into the omnipresent darkness of night. And still, we could not step away.
Finally, I said goodbye. I went in for the hug, which unlocked it all. We remained entangled in our embrace, melting into the familiar curves of each other. I stroked your hair and your arms found the curve of my waist. I felt you turn your face into my neck and breathe deeply. I loved that. I pulled away, determine to stick to our new boundaries. But pulling away put my face inches from yours, and I could feel the pull of your lips. I can’t deny I wanted you. That I missed you. Your face reflected the little light left from the day, contrasting with your dark hair. Oh, how familiar that is.
After all the light conversation, the attempts to pretend the deeper things in life aren’t happening, and the magic of touching you, I decided what I wanted. What I wanted was to kiss you. I grabbed your face quickly, perhaps in fear that you’d pull away. I pressed my lips against yours, and I felt you kiss me back. Ah, the feeling of home. I missed that. I missed you. What a constant, this beautiful act is. Kissing is so standard and even overlooked in society about the beautiful and intimate language that it is with your lover. Being without your kisses reminds me of how precious they are.
Eventually, I do have to leave. Darkness has settled upon us and we cannot avoid it anymore. The weight of life comes back to us, but perhaps a little lighter with this special joy we just shared. We disentangle, my hands running across your shoulders, down your arms, and to your hands, holding them as I soak up your presence. We smile to each other as I get in the car and we kiss passionately one more time through my open car window, with me pinned to the drivers seat. I feel your hand move from my face to my chest and back to my face again. I desperately wish I could allow more to happen. But for now, memories will have to do.
I drive away touching my lips and thinking about you, wondering if this was a one time thing or if I’ll get to kiss you again.

2023.06.03 05:51 zacharypretzel Inversed Chikn Nuggit

I was thinking about what would it look like when the Names and the Species swapped places. This is what I came up with.
Chikn Nuggit will be Doggie
Cheezborger will be Kitti-Kat
Iscream will be Wrabbith (Wrath infused with Rabbit)
Slushi will be Vixie (Vixen is a female name for Fox)
Fwench Fwy will be Dwagun
Sody Pop will be Wed Penda
Cofi will be Shweep
Hawt Saus will be Skwirl
It seems like I have no ideas for Bezel.

2023.06.03 05:51 Ancient_Ad7137 [Rolex or Zenith] Graduation Decision?

[Rolex or Zenith] Graduation Decision?
I am graduating next month and I am being allowed to chose a watch as a gift and momento. I have narrowed it down to two watches that I really like, and are very different timepieces. The first is the Rolex Explorer I 36mm and the other is the Zenith El Primero Chronomaster Original. I will never sell this watch so value is not my concern and I intend for it to be a piece that will last a lifetime. I would like to know about things such as reliability, durability, and the overall cost to service. I have attached a picture of each watch below and would love to hear everyone’s opinions on which they believe to be the best choice and why. I hope y’all are able to help me decide the best lifelong piece and please let me know your thoughts! Thank you so much!

I'm looking for some interesting fics where the idea of hero and villain were swapped; The prt is evil, slaughterhouse would be actively saving people, etc. Kinda like that one marvel comic where all the villains turned good and heroes turned bad.

2023.06.03 05:51 butterfly_71 What Diet Do Most Celebrities Follow?

There is no universal answer to this question, as celebrities follow a wide range of diets depending on personal preferences and goals. Some popular celebrity diets include:
1. Ketogenic Diet: This low-carb, high-fat diet is known for promoting weight loss and increasing mental clarity. Celebrities such as Halle Berry and Kim Kardashian have reportedly followed keto diets.
2. Paleo Diet: The Paleo diet focuses on eating foods that our ancestors ate, such as lean meats, fish, fruits, vegetables, nuts, and seeds. Celebrities like Jessica Biel and Miley Cyrus have expressed their preference for the paleo diet.
3. Vegan or plant-based diet: Many celebrities choose a vegan or plant-based diet for ethical, environmental, or health reasons. Vegan celebrities include Ellen DeGeneres, Beyoncé and Natalie Portman.
4. Mediterranean Diet: This diet is based on the traditional dietary habits of Mediterranean people, with a focus on fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes, lean proteins and healthy fats. Celebrities such as Penelope Cruz and Tom Hanks are known to follow the Mediterranean diet.
5. Gluten-Free Diet: Some celebrities follow a gluten-free diet, avoiding gluten-containing grains such as wheat, barley, and rye. This diet is often followed by people with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity. Celebrities such as Lady Gaga and Gwyneth Paltrow have mentioned their preference for a gluten-free diet.
It's important to note that these diets may not be suitable or effective for everyone, and it's always a good idea to consult with a healthcare professional or registered dietitian before making any major changes to your diet. Also, it's worth noting that not all celebrities follow strict diets, many of them focus on balanced, healthy eating without sticking to a specific meal plan.

2023.06.03 05:50 DealMann Moca adapter failing?

Home built in 2005, only put Ethernet in a few areas, not in all rooms. I did put coax in all the rooms. So, fast forward to Covid, I needed a good internet connection for work, so I posted here you guys saved me by recommending moca and using the coax line. The connection was every bit as good as Ethernet. Until this week. As of Wednesday I had 20 internet disconnects. Thursday I used Ethernet (ran a wire across the hallway) to check the connection and it had zero disconnects. So Thursday I checked every connection, tightened them all and plugged them back replacing the patch cable on both ends. The whole setup is indoors so none of it is exposed to the elements. Today I had 15 disconnects. Is there any way to test for a failure or dying moca device? 2 years ago I got the Action tec version. It worked perfect until this week. Any ideas?

2023.06.03 05:50 nocturnal_numbness First paycheque

Just happy I got my first paycheque from CB. I only made $120 but I’m happy considering I only have $12 in my bank account and I needed money just for groceries. Hoping to beat that amount for my next paycheque. Open to any ideas! I’ve got a couple regulars I’m debating booting out because they rarely tip. I average about 200 tokens over 2-3 hours. Besides that I’m happy. I have money to feed my kid.

2023.06.03 05:50 Jesterhead92 Yet Another Take on how to handle Warlock slots

Yeah, I know we're all tired of talking this out to death, but I legitimately think this is a good compromise to make Warlock less reliant on short rests, therefore having less variance in their effectiveness from table to table while staying true to the spirit of the 5e Warlock, whose niche was trading versatility for power. You casted less spells overall but you generally cast more high level spells than anyone else and blah blah blah you get it, here we go
Level 1-2: 2
Level 3-4: 1, 2
Level 5-6: 1, 1, 4
Level 7-8: 1, 1, 1, 4
Level 9-10: 1, 1, 1, 2, 4
Level 11-12: 1, 1, 1, 2, 5
Level 13-14: 1, 1, 2, 2, 5
Level 15-16: 1, 1, 2, 2, 6
Level 17-18: 1, 2, 2, 2, 7
Level 19-20: 1, 2, 2, 2, 8
As you can see, this is inspired by the idea of "full caster progression but with half caster slots" and that lines up, we start with 2 and end with 15 just like any half caster just with more weight towards the higher end. All in all, this is mechanically better than 5e Warlock in some ways but weaker in others and I think it balances out and since none of this is short rest based, it's more consistent and works no matter what table you're at and the general concept of how Warlocks work mechanically is mostly maintained
Or we could just make short rests not take a fucking hour, but whatever
Oh, and in case it's not obvious, the assumption is we would still use Mystic Arcanum for 6-9th level spells and hopefully go back to not needing invocations for them

2023.06.03 05:50 Minute_Mechanic2227 Should I move away or stay with my family?

Some background I gave up a job in my favourite province to stay and take care of my grandpa. I’ve had access to his bank account for 2 years as he always needed help logging in (I have never used any of his money for personal use and don’t even know how much he has as I’ve never checked).
My aunt (whom I’ll refer to as W) has all my grandpas passwords and took his book with his passwords in them. She then changed his bank account password and when I went to help him log in this morning we realized it had been changed so he called W to get his book back. My aunt whom I thought I was very close with and started to view as a mother figure since I don’t really have a relationship with mine came over this afternoon. She went on to lecture me and say I had no business having anything to do with his finances. That I had no right having access to anything and for some reason brought up that I’m a private person and she has no idea how much money is in my bank account. Then implied I was mooching off of my grandfather because I’m staying here rent free despite me doing all the cooking, cleaning, driving, and any errands that need to be done. And I don’t even want to be here I want to be doing a job I enjoy spending time with people my own age. The entire time she just was saying how I have no right or no business helping my grandpa log into his bank account because she’s not comfortable with me having his passwords. And when I asked for clarification why because it sounded like she was implying I would steal his money she just kept repeating how I have no right.
Now I’m not really upset about not having his passwords. It’s definitely annoying that she is keeping everything so he needs to contact her if he can’t remember his password instead of just having it in a book by his computer. But I just feel so unappreciated, like an outsider, and insulted that after all the time I’ve put into cultivating what I thought were good relationships with my family members and making sacrifices to make their lives easier that she thinks so little of me and had no problem berating me.
I told her that I respect her thoughts and opinions and will go along with it but that I think our relationship moving forward should be centred around my grandpa and that I need more boundaries now that I know what she thinks of me
The more time that passes the angrier I get thinking about the way she talked to me and I don’t know if I should just completely ignore her unless it involves something with my grandma or let her know that I’m no longer comfortable being around her

2023.06.03 05:50 ChainFuture2555 How does new student registration even work??

How will my advisor and I decide on courses when I still don’t know what AP credit I get? For example, I took the exams for AP Physics C Mechanics and E&M, but I have no idea whether I got a 5? (I’m predicting a 4 or 5 but I have no idea which of the two my score will be, and I need the 5 for credit.)
So how will my advisor know whether to register me for university physics or not?
Also, I plan on taking a proficiency exam before the start of the fall semester to test out of calc III, but those results won’t be known until august, but my registration is in June…so how am I supposed to know whether I register for calc III or not in June??

2023.06.03 05:50 PawarShubham3007 Nvim-lspconfig: How to pass configuration options to volar language server(vue.js)

When using coc-volar we can specify options like following in coc-settings.json
{ "volar.autoClosingTags": true, "volar.autoCreateQuotes": true, "vue.autoInsert.dotValue": true, // <-- this one's important } 
with lspconfig, I'm trying something like this.
require'lspconfig'.volar.setup{ capabilities = cmp_capabilities, on_attach = on_attach_custom, settings = { volar = { autoClosingTags = true, autoCreateQuotes = true }, vue = { autoInsert = { dotValue = true} } } } 
But doesn't work. It doesn't automatically insert .value I also tried with the init_options

require'lspconfig'.volar.setup{ capabilities = cmp_capabilities, on_attach = on_attach_custom, init_options = { volar = { autoClosingTags = true, autoCreateQuotes = true }, vue = { autoInsert = { dotValue = true} } } } 
Same result. Any ideas for this

2023.06.03 05:50 AutomaticTax3084 At school, I wrote a fake love note and signed someone else's name on it!

I did this in my writing class. I've wrote fake love notes in other classes but it was done with students and had someone else's name on it that's not from them. I decided and had an idea to write one to the teacher. And the thing about this, my writing teacher is male and I'm signing another male classmates name on it. The note was saying he likes him and is asking him out to a restaurant. I wrote the note in a different class so I didn't get caught with it in class. I folded the note up with both their names signed on the front of it. I couldn't think of anyway to give it to the teacher, so I sat it on a random desk hoping someone would give it to the teacher as they saw the name. So it did happen, it was on my classmates desk and she gave it to the teacher.
He looked at it in a shocked way, but he didn't read it until 5 mintues later. When he picked it back up he read it. I sit in the front, I kept turning around looking at him. His eyes huge, he looked extremely uncomfortable. I could tell he read it multiple times. He set it aside and he still had that uncomfortable look. He later called him over to his desk and asked him if he wrote this. He crumbled it up and said he didn't. The teacher laughed. He said he wanted to take that up the the principal because that's inappropriate. The teacher told him it wasn't that serious. He blamed somebody else in the classroom for doing it.

2023.06.03 05:50 ProSitter Higher utility bills since installing heat pump

Homeowner in Calgary, AB Canada here.

I had these products installed in my 3 story townhome in November.

- Furnace model No. Ducane 96G2UH070BV12-02
- ccASHP Outdoor Unit model No. Ducane 4HP18V36P
- Indoor unit model No. EAC4X36B

I have fixed utility rates. My bills have basically doubled since getting this installation done (especially noticeable in shoulder season months; electrical consumption is 2-3x higher than pre installation).

I had the heat pump installed to save money on utility bills in the shoulder months. So far it's the opposite.

I'll be contacting my contractor to look into this, but hoping one of the pro's might have some insight or ideas for me.

2023.06.03 05:50 chiproller I've been looking for an off-meta top lane pick and after the Rek'sai buffs would like to play the void burrito.

Has anyone tried playing her much in top lane? It's still too early in the patch to get a good idea of her strength (currently 55% win rate with a low pick rate) and she seems to have quite a few bad match-ups and would be perhaps utilized as a counter / pocket pick vs certain team comps.
I'd like to get a better feel for what her power spikes are, level-wise and item-wise, as well as any other advice for playing her in top lane that you wonderful voidlings might have. She would seem to be a lot of fun and her tunnels (I'm thinking a few hidden ones in side bushes and alcove) would make for some sneaky gank escapes! Any advice / tips / tricks you might have is greatly appreciated.

2023.06.03 05:50 Zan_ita Dad wants to transfer whole life insurance taken out 24 years ago - should I keep or cash out?

My dad took out whole life insurance policies for me when I was 3. I am now 27 and he wants to transfer them to me. The annual premium is $1,300, death benefit is $164,000, and cash value is $12,000. I have also been given an option to buy more without any additional underwriting.
I am graduating from law school now and will be doing biglaw, so will make a good salary ($215k the first year). I will probably have kids some day. Once I start earning, I will of course max out my Roth, 401k, do a backdoor Roth if my firm allows, and invest in an index fund. I keep reading that whole life insurance is a bad idea, but don't really understand why. If I'm saving/investing in these other ways, it seems like it could be a good way to diversify, and I would try to think of it as insurance, not an investment.
The wealth management advisor my dad uses said the value will never decrease, so it doesn't seem risky. I am not very financially literate (if you couldn't tell already!), so I would appreciate your advice. Would it be a good idea to keep the whole life insurance, or should I cash out now for the $12k? If I should keep it, do you recommend exercising the option to buy more?

2023.06.03 05:49 Mediocre-River5537 47 [M4F] #Northbrook - 12 things I have learned so far about affairs.

  1. A well-written post will increase your chances by a minuscule percentage but only luck determines how many responses you will get.
  2. If the conversation gets too hot too fast, either you won a jackpot or you are being catfished it's usually the latter.
  3. When you get an immediate response to a F4M post, it's your lucky day and you should buy a lottery ticket.
  4. Just because the conversation is going well for 2 days don't get too hopeful, it can crash and burn anytime.
  5. Just because the conversation is going well for 5 days don't get too hopeful, it can crash and burn anytime.
  6. Just because the conversation is going well for 10 days don't get too hopeful, it can crash and burn anytime.
  7. Just because the conversation is going well for a month, by now you get the idea.
  8. If you find your AP is getting too busy all the time, it's time to say goodbye and start looking again, which is what I am doing now.
  9. If you keep hearing a lot of "what about you" it's time to invest your time and energy in another person.
  10. It helps to clearly mention
  1. If you did find a good AP thank your stars, most people don't get so lucky.
  2. Lastly remember, there is a person on the other side with real feelings and a heart that can break just likes yours, we are all a little broken to be here so pls be kind.
