I posted this as a reply to another thread, but thought (thot?) I would share here, too. Please to enjoy my recap of S3 Episode 3. Spoilers (obviously).
  1. Starting off in LA. Kim's body guard/ stylist puts them both in black coats and camo pants so she can go meet Scott for pizza and pre-planned gossip. They're both single, so they have lots to talk about. Like how it's too hard for Kim to go on first dates with guys and also too hard for Kim to break up with guys. She did go out with a guy in NYC, but wasn't smart enough to not go to the same place where she used to hang out with Pete, so everyone thought she was getting back together with Pete. Scott recommends she go for an older Italian businessman, but only if he's hot. Kim's not into it. So they talk about Cher and her much younger boyfriend AE. It's the best. But also probably the worst because Cher must be too old to bang him with the lights on. Kim only bangs with the lights off now. You know, because she's shy.
Two. Kourtney is doing a photo shoot for Lemme "Fall in Love" with Travis. Their love was not the result of a Potion No.9, but for people without their chemistry, who have $30, these supplements containing the essence of flowers will open your heart. Domineco Dolce and his dudes stop by so Kourtney can remind everyone she knew them way before her wedding. Also, Kourtney is shy and didn't speak as a child. Until she was a teenager. The stylist puts Travis in no shirt and they roll around together taking pictures very similar to all the other pictures they've taken before.
  1. Kris stops by to see Khloe and Rob. I mean Tate. I mean Tatum. Khloe and Tristan are doing great because they are never ever getting back together ever again. They have very good boundaries and Khloe does not want to fall into old habits. Khloe feels guilty she isn't connecting with her second baby -- that she had in secret via surrogate while her ex-fiancee was having his fourth baby with his side chick -- the same as True. So we have to talk about the difficulties of surrogacy/ miracle of being a mother again. Tatem is now on goat milk formula. He might, but does not puke on Kris.
  2. In NYC, Kendall is getting ready to attend a Marni show at Fashion Week. This is much more fun and relaxing than when she used to walk the shows because now she is good and healthy and has good boundaries. Kris calls and tells Kendall she's the favorite daughter. But we all know it's really Kylie. Kris said so yesterday while taking a lie detector test on TV.
  3. Back in LA, it's 6 days before the D&G show and Kim's glam team is getting her ready for a pre-show photo shoot. Her role as Kreative Director of the show has involved creating looks. Well, looks D&G originally created in the 90s. They are so cool and Kim-esque. Crystals from head to toe. Kim is worried about how Kourtney will feel about this whole thing. She probably wouldn't mind at all if it was just a little bit later. (Because time heals all wounds?)
  4. It's stormy in NYC. Kourtney is in town for fashion shows and Lemme press. She has anxiety and PTSD and needs drugs. Or maybe Lemme matcha. Kourtney wants to show how passionate she is about vitamins. She used to hate press because of the criticism and pressure from the family to earn her keep. But now she's married and confident, so she was able to decide on flavors for her vitamins. Kris watched the Today Show interview and gave it a thumbs up, because Kourtney looked beautiful. Simon thinks that's amazing. The team thinks Kourtney did a great job of organically talking about Lemme during the interview about Lemme.
  5. Still in NYC, Kourtney is making rounds of the magazines, handing out Lemme pills like Halloween candy. Kourtney loves Lemme Focus, but can't remember why. Travis wore no shirt to perform at a Tommy Hilfiger fashion show. Kris and Kendall show up. Kris tries out a few tag lines for the next campaign like "Lemme get the hell out of here and get a drink." They talk about Khloe's good test results from her melanoma situation. Which Kendall has diagnosed as a result of Khloe being too tired and stressed. Kourtney is a perfectionist and Kendall is a control freak both because of pressure from Kris. Kris thinks thats hilarious. Kendall suggests if they can channel the baggage of their dysfunctional childhoods into productive work, it's all good. Kris will take the blame for any anxiety she has caused, as long as it results in a successful product release.
  6. Back to LA. Kim is spending quality time with North by allowing her to do her makeup with special effects makeup while she talks to Scott. Scott pitches an idea for an episode where they pretend to be normies. According to Kim, Kris is sad that she has pushed everyone into being so famous they have no sense of actual reality. But Kim can handle it. She's never been depressed. While her daughter continues to work on turning her into an old lady, Kim talks about being fine when her dad died. North farts. It smelled bad. North walks Kim around the house introducing her to the staff as Anika the Art Teacher. The staff helps Kim make her alone time with North fun by playing along. Kim loves making North happy by playing pranks and hanging out with Scott.
  7. Kourtney and Trav are walking around NYC. Kourtney's outfit choice -- an oversized Blink-182 shirt and over the knee boots -- can't survive the 12 minute walk because the boots are falling down. Trav thinks she should take them off (And walk around barefoot in the rat feces and period blood covered sidewalk? Khloe would never let her set foot in her house ever again!) They make it to the Matcha shop without Travis needing to carry Kourtney like last time. NYC was a whirlwind, but Kourtney will always put family and husband ahead of work.
  8. Kim arrives in Milan. However, her stylist does not because she forgot her passport. How is Kim supposed to do her job as Fashion Show Kreative Director without a stylist? How is Kim supposed to know what she likes and doesn't like without Danielle there to tell her? Someone needs to fly to Milan with her passport. There are 3 days left and they have no looks. Kim arrives at the D&G studio where 10 people are there ready to get a room full of D&G pieces into looks. Domineco tells Kim, "Your opinion in this case is very great for us." Kim wants people to think this show of rehashed 90s fashions is "Fresh" and "Cool." But it's going to be problematic for Kreative Director Kim to pull this off without her stylist. She always needs someone to confirm that something looks good. Kim doesn't want to do veils (Because Kourtney?). Kim wants more bedazzles, but also needs to check with Danielle. Domineco isn't crazy about bedazzled glasses with a corset dress, but Kim doesn't know without talking to Danielle. There's that fear people won't like it. (Is Danielle supposed to be the scape goat in case this whole show sucks?) A bad show could hurt Kim's brand. People might say Kim doesn't know how to work on the creative side. (Um... they're sure going to say that now, after she is such a floundering mess without her stylist!). She just doesn't know how she's going to do this without Danielle.
Scenes: Kim thinks Danielle not being there happened for a reason. Kendall takes Kylie horseback riding and tries to kill her. Kourtney wants to kill Kim for kopying her wedding. Kim is taken completely off guard by Kourtney's reaction. The producers try to pretend there's going to be a "Kendall is pregnant" story line.

2023.06.09 08:04 Winter-Dark-5051 Dear Sisters, You ARE Desired. Believe It. Know It. Accept It.

I am a black woman, and I am so sick of other black women coming onto the internet and projecting their insecurities onto everyone else. It is beyond embarrassing. It seems that black women--especially American black women--are engrained to believe that they are so undesirable to men that when a man (no matter the race) gives black women a compliment or labels them as their preference, you all find some way to be offended--labelling everything as performative. Stop it! You are feeding into white supremacy by holding onto this belief. Please stop! No one is gaslighting you. You are gaslighting yourself. If you have low self-esteem and are still dealing with racial insecurities, then get off of the internet and go to therapy.
Trust me--you are desired! The first time a white guy hit on me--I was in my early 20s--and, admittedly, I was taken aback because I was insecure and I didn't realize that I was desirable to white men. There were a couple of other white women around that he could have pursued, but he wasn't interested in them--and this man was fine as hell. After getting involved with him, I allowed my insecurities to affect our relationship and I started projecting. I asked him if I was a fetish, and guess what? He was highly offended, and looking back I completely understand why. I was attacking his character, when in reality he just saw me as a sexy women with an amazing vibe. He didn't care about my race. That experience was an eye-opener for me. I grew up in a predominately white area and I was not attractive when I was younger, so guys (especially white guys) were not into me. But as I got older, I grew into my looks and found a personal style that suits me. Now, I get hit on by men of every race and in every country. I remember being hit on by a white guy on an elevator when I was in Asia. He got on and started chatting with me and then told me that I was really pretty. There was actually an Asian women on the elevator too, but he wasn't paying her any attention at all. Now the internet would have you believing that white men always go for Asian women and that they're really not into black women. No, not the case. I lived in Asia for some time and I can not tell you how many times I was told that I was beautiful by the locals or how many times I was complimented on my skin tone. So many other black women can tell you the same thing.
I am so sick of the online debate about colorism, race preferences--it is all bs. I can give examples as to why:
Myth #1: Most black men are attracted to white women.
This has to be the biggest lie perpetuated by mainstream media and stupid people on the internet. Most black men I know aren't attracted to white women at all. They have told me this. They see them as plain and boring and not having a vibe. Even when I attended predominately white schools--both high school and college (and these schools were very, very white), the small population of black guys were mostly into the other black and brown girls. They were not checking for the white girls AT ALL, unless the white girl had a striking feature--like an enormous ass--which was very rare (I only witnessed that one time).
I know a guy on the west coast who has a friend who only dates white women, but he said that this friend is always sending him pictures of black girls and mixed girls. To me, it all makes sense--white women aren't sexually fetishized like Black and Asian women. They're not seen as sexually enticing in general, and I think a lot of times when a man of color solely pursues white women--8 or 9 times out of 10--it's not about the physical attraction. It's about that man wanting to be closer to whiteness due to self-hate and he's using this white woman as a vessel through which he can obtain some sort of privilege or power by marrying her or having offspring with her. A lot of these men still have an affinity towards black women and would not hesitate to get with a fine ass black woman if she gave him the time of day. Like comedian Godfrey said in a DJ Vlad interview once: "You can't beat a fine ass black woman. You can not beat that sh\*."*
I mean look at the passport bros (even though I think those men are trash). Do you see any of these men flying to Europe in droves? No. They're flying to countries with beautiful black women. Even when they travel to countries with a white demographic--like Brazil--they are still choosing black, biracial, and/or melanated women.
Myth #2: Dark skin black women are less desirable than light-skin black women.
I just can't with this one. Personal anecdote: I have a light caramel skin tone and my sister is dark skin--we're only a year apart, so we've always attended school together. Literally all through school, guys would tell me to my face that my sister looks better than me. All. The. Time. Black guys said this to me and they said it to her too. And when we attended predominately white schools, my sister was constantly told that she was pretty. I, on the other hand, never had anyone tell me that I was pretty at those predominately white schools. Like I said earlier, I grew into my looks at a later age. It's not about skin tone. It's about whether you're pretty or not. I've gone out with friends who are darker than me and they have been told that they are beautiful or pretty while I was sitting right next to them. Pretty dark skin girls literally look like walking barbie dolls. Are you kidding me? I know so many light skin women who are hideous. The number of dark skin women who have traveled to Europe and have been complimented on their skin tone...really? To this day, my sister still gets complimented on her dark skin.
Sure some people have preferences, but a preference doesn't exclude everyone else. I have a preference for dark-skin men and I'm not really into the bald look (it gives grandpa vibes), but I think Common is one of the sexiest men alive. I would probably melt if I met him in person.
This belief that so-and-so isn't as popular as so-and-so because she's dark skin is nonsense. I guess that's why diveludo--a tiktok influencer--has 3 mil followers...because she's.....light-skin? No. It's because she's beautiful and sexy as hell, regardless of her skin tone. If you're having a hard time in the dating world, IT IS NOT because you're dark skin. It's because you're I just can't with this bs colorism debate. Next.
Myth #3: Black men (or any man) publicly professing their love for black women is performative.
How? You think it's performative because you don't see yourself as desirable and you are projecting your insecurities onto others. For example, the whole John Boyega/Breakfast Club situation or the viral TikTok videos of white men showing their admiration for black women--some black women's reaction to that was embarrassing. That preference shouldn't shock you. In the past decade, we saw this huge cultural shift in terms of beauty--it went from tall, blonde, and skinny to melanated and curvy. Terms like basic white girl and melanin queen became popular due to this cultural shift and the expansion of social media. Mainstream media no longer controlled the image of blackness and whiteness and I think a lot of people started to see black women outside of the stereotypical images of us in movies, shows, and tv ads. Look at instagram pages like "brwnart" or tumblr pages like "blackbeauties" and tell me that you can't understand why there's a sudden rise in non-black men's attraction to black women--images like that of black women are are all over social media. Stop it.
Step outside of your insecure bubble for 2 seconds and observe society--the cultural appropriation, the trends in music, the global influence of black culture, the sex symbols over the past decade. I have attended PWI's and HBCU's and hands down those HBCU's have the BADDEST females. I don't even know if it's possible for a white woman to be bad if she isn't appropriating blackness in some way. Is it? Is that possible? I know black men in real life who have only dated white women and in the past decade have completely shifted their preference and no longer find white women attractive at all. Sometimes it's about exposure. I have a white passing friend of Mexican descent who said that when growing up, he was only attracted to white women because he lived in a predominately white environment and that he wasn't attracted to black women during that time. When he was in his 20s, he moved to a predominately black area and realized that black women were pretty hot. Ever since then, he's had an attraction to black women (he's attracted to all races now--but you get my point).
Enough of the inferiority complex. Enough of black women talking down on themselves. You wouldn't be so imitated if people thought you were undesirable.
Do you know how many times I've entered a non-black space and had people (men and women) flocking to me? It's because I stand out as a black woman. I have an aura and a style that attracts people to me, and anytime I enter a predominately non-black space (especially a white space), I know that all eyes will be on me. It happens every time. If you have this belief that you are undesirable and are "bottom of the barrel" or whatever foolish things you tell yourself, then that is exactly how people are going to treat you and that is exactly how you are going to see the world.
Stop perpetuating white supremacy. It is time to break that cycle. Stop speaking negatively about yourself. Stop responding to foolishness on the internet. Stop responding to these self-hating black people and racist non-black people who are using the internet as a source to project their trauma. Stop worrying about which celebrity is dating what race. Stop it! Everything doesn't need a response or a reaction. When some of these self-hating black men spew negativity about us, I literally laugh because 1) I know it's coming from a place of pain and 2) I don't need their validation because I literally get approached by every race of men. I don't feel restricted to one group.
If you're dealing with low self-esteem due to racial trauma, then go to therapy--try EMDR therapy or psychedelic therapy. If you're hair is damaged and you're constantly hiding it under weaves and wigs and your hair is thinning, then go on a hair journey or see a PRP specialist. If you're overweight or out of shape, then go on a diet and make exercising a part of your daily routine. If you're suffering from dark spots and hyperpigmentation, then go to a dermatologist and get a chemical peel. If you need to improve your speech or improve your mannerisms, then take a communications class or an etiquette class. If there's something about your features that you don't like, then get non-surgical surgery (there are so many)--there's nothing wrong with that. Find your niche--everyone has a special skill that they are the best at--whether it's math, art, science, writing, makeup, whatever. Think about your favorite subject in school or what you're doing when you don't notice how much time has gone by--hone in out that, nurture it, and turn it into a lucrative career. Do whatever you need to do to become the best version of you inside and out, and experience the power you can have over people when you captivate them with your black beauty. It is MAGICAL.
Now go be a black queen and stop reacting to the internet.

Save 6 minutes of reading with this summary:
The Kyiv Independent spoke with family members of people living under Russian occupation in Oleshky and collected accounts that residents posted on social media from the affected occupied areas. This woman, who did not reveal her name, said the situation in the town is critical, with many children, elderly and disabled people stuck on their roofs for many hours. She said Russian troops set up checkpoints in the less-flooded areas to "prevent" locals from escaping the disaster area or saving others, and she heard of people drowning. Politico reported that Russian forces blocked people who tried to flee immediately after the dam's destruction, forcing them to wait at home for an official list of evacuees that would be bussed out of the area. Only people with Russian passports were being allowed to leave, multiple people confirmed. Tetiana Akhtemenko, a resident of Antonivka, told Ukrainian TV that her family members spoke of a "very bad situation – the water keeps rising, but they're forbidding evacuation, shooting at people's legs. Even Russian volunteers, who arrived to help people from Crimea, were halted at the Russian checkpoints, according to Ukrainian volunteer Andriy Kniga, whose family members are in the disaster area.

2023.06.08 12:12 Sneakerrfool613 Anyone here from Canada with an LO in the pen?

My LO is about to be transferred to Joyceville any day now. He said that if he is, it might be 5 days until he can even call me. Is this true? That stresses me sooo much. Also, since joyceville is only for a couple months until he gets to Collins Bay (most likely) where he spends the rest of his sentence until parole, what is the the deadline for sending him clothes, tv, shoes, etc that he will be needing? Is there a deadline? LASTLY, after getting transferred from JV, what was the process like to get trailer visits? We never really lived together but we’re pushing that we’re common law and he has me on his visitors list as his wife so we can get trailer visits quicker. I know I have to send copies of IDs and passport pics and mail it but will they also call his parents? Will they come to my place and vet me? And all in all, how long from when he gets to Collins Bay will we finally be able to get trailer visits?
I appreciate any responses so soo much thanks!

My salary – $500 (paid monthly)
Side Gig Income – $0
Other income – negligible amounts from dividends received from my stock portfolio that I re-invest
Housemates – 4 (husband P, 6 year old L, 4 year old E and nanny F. My nephew M is around and makes appearances too)

Assets and Liabilities

Equity $60,000 fully paid off

Current account balance $660 Includes my mum's money since I'm managing her financial affairs while she's abroad
Loan from employer $130 I took a personal loan from work, because the interest rates are lower than rate of inflation and repayment is over 18 months. Loan was used to make improvements on our house, and what wasn’t used, I bought shares on our stock exchange, due to hyperinflation, the amount I owe in US$ has gone down
Investments (shares in various counters on our local stock exchanges) $1,186
Car $4,000 Based on current resale value. Car was bought secondhand for cash

Income progression- (

This year, my husband and I decided that he would take on the bulk of our expenses since I do most of the domestic work/childcare. Expenses I pay will be indicated. My salary is now for my expenses, my investments and my savings, and spoiling the kids. Husband caters for the family basics. There was a point last year when I felt my husband wasn’t as invested in the family because he barely did anything financially. By having him cater for all expenses, he is now definitely involved and invested. My husband’s income is just about the same as mine, slightly higher at some times.

My Expenses
Expense Amount /period Note
Car insurance and licensing $300/annum This is due in March, and I pay for the entire year
Petrol $60/month
Electricity $10/month
Airtime/data $20/month

Makeup/clothes/toiletries/ supplements/hair $30/month I do not us this much monthly though
Water $15/month Based on last bill received in April. We do not get water consistently so bills are infrequent
Donations $20/month Ad hoc donations to a soup kitchen, and maternal health fun
Stock market investment $50/month May invest more or less, but I do try to buy shares every payday

Household Expenses (paid by P)

Expense Amount /period Note
Groceries $200/month Bulk grocery shopping of staple food items and toiletries
LP Gas $30/approx. every 2 months We buy when it runs out. Usually every 2 months depending on how bad the power supply is

Pet expenses $60/ twice a year For vaccinations and checkups for 4 dogs. Pet food is covered under groceries
School fees for the kids $347/ term One kid has fees paid every month, the other every 3 months
Nanny $80/month Less than before as both kids are now in school fulltime, and nanny is there to get them ready for school and care after school for 3 hours.
DSTV subscription $37/month
Transport for kids to/from school $60/month L gets picked up and dropped off at home daily, E is dropped off after school

Previous MDs - ( and (

Did you participate in any form of higher education? If yes, how did you pay for it?
Yes, I have a BSc in Accounting, a Masters in Accounting, and a Postgraduate Diploma in Taxation. My parents both have Masters degrees, and in my family, the bare minimum acceptable for education was getting a Bachelors. My mother paid for my undergraduate degree, and I paid cash for my postgraduate studies.

Growing up, what kind of conversations did you have about money?
My parents divorced when I was very young. My dad is the wealthier of the two, my mum has always been middle-class. My mum brought me up with very little financial help from my dad, he only covered tuition and healthcare until I turned 18. My mum catered for everything else. My mum taught me how to look for bargains, how to save and invest, and also how to sometimes enjoy your money.

If you have, when did you move out of your parents'/guardians' house?
I would say I moved out at 26 when I got my current job. I had moved out when I got my first fulltime job, but moved back home when that contract ended

At what age did you become financially responsible for yourself? Does anyone else cover any aspects of your financial life?
At 26 again. That's when I earned enough to cover all my bills without needing help. My husband P covers some aspects of my financial life, and my mum occasionally helps out with stuff for her grandchildren.

What was your first job and why did you get it?
I worked as a receptionist at my mum's law firm after finishing my A Levels (age 18) while waiting to start university. My mum gave me the job to keep me occupied and out of mischief, lol.

Do you worry about money now?
I worry about building generational wealth for my children. I want to make sure they will be set for life as adults. I do worry about money because hyperinflation is eroding my earnings and retirement dramatically. This is my second time losing my retirement. My mum and in laws are losing their retirement for the third time, so honestly our old age looks bleak if we do not invest outside of work pensions.

Do you or have you ever received passive or inherited income?
I receive negligible dividends from the shares I own, lol.

Day 1
0430 – I’m woken up by loadshedding. I sigh, rollover, and sleep some more
0600 – Alarm goes off. I turn it off, enjoy cuddles from P and finally get out of bed. Our water tanks ran out 4 days ago, and council has not yet deigned to give us water, so we rely on P’s parents and friends to give us water. I get my water that was warming up on the stove, and take a quick bucket bath. I moisturize, do my brows, throw my lace wig on (I cut my hair in January, and I’m at a really awkward stage where my hair looks bad when I wear it out all day) and get dressed. It’s cold in the mornings so I put on winter stockings and a black and white chevron patterned dress, nude ballet pumps plus my warm jacket. I get E from the couch where he was watching Cocomelon and my lunch bag out of the kitchen and we head off to his school. After dropping off E, I go to the office. No electricity means no elevator, so I go up the stairs. I see my boss’s boss and greet him as we do the ZESA (local electricity company) sponsored workout. I log in to the work register, fill up my kettle, and settle down to check out my work email. Nothing urgent came through overnight, so I go into my personal email. The wig company I patronize has given me a code for my birthday, and I’m wondering if I should pull the trigger on my cart. I decide to do a report while thinking this through.
My mum is currently working out of the country, so I am managing her local finances/obligations while she’s away. I remember I have to buy the prepaid electricity token for my childhood home as well as for the house she lives in when she’s working in the country. I spend $23 on electricity for both houses (mum’s money so doesn’t count)
1030 – After doing some firefighting and office gossip I have my breakfast. Today its rice, peas and 2 fried eggs. I sprinkle some peri-peri Aromat on top since I don’t have a sauce/gravy ad I have been craving spicy food lately. I also pop my multivitamin and supplements. I check my team’s work and send back anything that needs correcting. I also generate the multiple reports my boss expects from me. I suddenly remember I need to claim my allowance for performing a role that is higher than my actual position at work. I quickly complete the form, and send it to my boss for his signature. The extra money from this is what I use to fund my stock market investments. I also remind my team to send a report to me for consolidation by noon.
12.00 – I do a major push of all my work due today so I can relax after lunch. I compile my reports and set them ready to send. I also finish my first 2 litres of water of the day, and cue up the next 2 litres
1300 – Its lunchtime, and my work bestie and I head out around town**. I find shorts that L would fit and buy 2 pairs for $10**. We head back to the office and I have caramel popcorn for lunch. Then I remember I forgot to have my afternoon meds, oops. Anyway, more work before heading to an audit meeting
1630 – The audit meeting is finally over, and I rush to shut down my computer, pack up my things and go home. I have an agreement with my manager that as long as I make up for the hour, by either coming early or skipping lunch, I can leave work at 4pm. I had a total hysterectomy end of last year so I still can’t manage driving in heavy traffic. I arrive home, make the bed (P had not made it when he went to work), and harvest chilies from our garden that have ripened. I also harvest a local herb used as a flu remedy and lemongrass, so I can brew up a tea/tisane for the flu affected people in my house. I also pack L’s lunch for tomorrow, a pie, a naartjie and juice. It’s also F’s payday, so I give her US$80 (P gave me this money).
E says he is hungry so I feed him sadza and sour milk by his request. I multitask covering L’s school textbook while supervising his homework and watching Married to Real Estate and the Great British Bake Off. I then have my dinner of sadza, greens and beef. I have a chat with the kids about their day at school. P gets home.
1900 – P and my nephew M go to fetch water from P’s friend’s house. The city council still hasn’t opened up our water supply. I do some French on Duolingo while the boys wreak havoc in their playroom. I read L and E their bedtime stories and put them to bed. I decide to do my hair in cornrows while watching Masterchef Australia. They get home and I help them carry water indoors. I remember that when power comes back I need to boil tripe on the stove, so I cut it up, put it in the pot with water, salt and garlic, and place it on the electric stove. We have serious loadshedding these days, so we have a gas stove and solar power to tide us over. I take a quick bath and change into my pyjamas. While P watches TV, I read Wild Sweet Love by Beverly Jenkins and continue to do my hair in cornrows.
2200 – My arms are tired and I’m only halfway through with the cornrows. I give up and go to bed with P.
Total spent - $10

Day 2
0600 – I hear crying. E is in a bad mood today. I turn off my alarm, and go to see what’s wrong. E does not want to get dressed for school. I sigh, and help F dress him while he throws a massive tantrum. E is dressed, so I go do my morning routine of shower, moisturize, contact lenses, and eyebrow makeup. Today, I wear a green dress I took from my mum, black tights, nude ballet flats and a black and white coat. E gets put into the car by F, and starts crying for porridge. We are already late, so he learns that the consequence of refusing to eat his porridge on time is to go to school without having his porridge. It’s not a big issue though, as he gets fed at school. So I lock the doors and windows and drive him to school as he throws a tantrum for the entire 10 minute drive. I shove him into the school gate and head to work.
It’s another ZESA sponsored stair workout today. I log into the register, and fill up my kettle with water. I switch on my computer, check my work email and send off client emails to my team for their response. My personal email has an annual report from one of the companies I have shares in so I check out if there’s a dividend this year. I own a negligible number of shares in the company though, but 28c per share is quite impressive. I check to see if my stock exchange wallet has been credited with the money I transferred there so I can buy more shares. It still hasn’t so I send a follow up email o the enquiries desk at the stock exchange. I do have a stockbroker, but I prefer doing my trades myself. I also do some French on Duolingo before 8am.
0830 – Our HR is in a tizzy because people are late for work. I don’t make a big deal out of it usually, because salaries are shit and people are demotivated. As long as my team shows up and does some work, I’m ok. I approve some work, and warn my team about coming in a bit too late. I also tell a teammate that she will have to cover for me on Monday as I am taking the day off. Our internet connectivity is shit so I can’t log into our system to check some stuff. My work bestie gives me avocados from her house. I almost cry because I have been craving avocados, but been too cheap to buy them.
1000 – I have a really bad sore throat. I am also hungry since I haven’t had breakfast yet. I jot down my shopping list for the weekend and head to Pick ‘n’ Pay to buy carrots, green peppers, tomatoes, lemons, cheese, polony and bread. I also buy my breakfast/lunch, which is rice, beans, ox liver and egg salad**. It all cost $10**. I leave my shopping in my car, and go to the office to wolf down my food, and take my multivitamin and painkiller. I also receive my wigs that I bought in May. Perfect timing, as I want to wear a new wig tomorrow for our girls’ day out.
I do some more work, and remind my team to send me the information I need for my daily reports.
1300 – I go out to buy a few items I didn’t find in Pick ‘n’ Pay earlier**. I go to Spar and buy peas, eggs, soft drinks for the outing tomorrow and a sausage roll. Total cost is $10**. The outing has been deemed kid friendly, so I needed drinks for the boys to have tomorrow. I get back into the office, and spend the rest of the lunch hour working.
1600 – It’s finally time to go home. I send my email to handover work issues for the person who will take over my role on Monday while I am on leave. I also send my out of office email, and head home. The kids are at their grandmother’s, so I take a leisurely bath, put on my pyjamas and eat dinner. Then I watch Masterchef Australia until P and E get home. I also get in some French Duolingo practice
2000 – P goes out with his friends, so I snuggle up on the couch with E and watch TV. I put E to bed, read him his bedtime story and kiss him good night. I finally finish season 13 of Masterchef Australia, and move on to My Kitchen Rules Australia. I love Australian reality shows, ngl.
2200 – I go to bed P gets home and tells me some bad news about a friend of ours. I feel very sad for him. He cuddles me and we sleep.
Total spent - $20

Day 3
0700 – I wake up feeling like a truck ran me over. I get out of bed, and get ready to hand-wash our laundry. We still have no running water so we can’t use the washing machine. I play music while doing my laundry to keep me motivated
0900 – Laundry has been hung out to dry. F has cooked potato curry, so I boil eggs and water. I have my breakfast of potato curry, egg, multivitamin and coffee. Once I’m done, I give E a bath and dress him. I also bath, moisturize, do my brows and get dressed. I’m wearing jeans and a t-shirt today as my friends and I ae supposed to take our kids out for a playdate. Then I receive a message that the outing is cancelled since one of our group is really sick. I try to think of something I can do with E, since L is out having fun with his grandmother. I do my Swahili Duolingo practice.
1100 – The welder comes to do some work on our garage door. I monitor the work for a bit, and then my nephew takes over. E starts really bugging me to go out. So I put on my headband wig and sneakers, and pack a cooler bag with snacks and drinks. We head into town and I buy myself some ciders for $9. These are for me to drink when the mood strikes me. E wants to go to a resort by the lake so I oblige him. We pay $8 for our entrance. He goes to play on the swings, and I take pictures of him having fun. Another family turns up, and one of his classmates is among them. He’s so happy, and goes to play with his friend. I watch him running around.
1500 – I get a call from my friend that she’s in town with my cake. This cake was meant for the cancelled outing. I pack up our stuff, hustle E into the car and drive back into town. I let out some colourful swear words when I realise I forgot to get our change of $2. Anyway**, I meet up with my friend and get the cake, and pay her $30**. It’s so pretty. I call my MIL while still in town to find out what time she will be there so I can pick up L. She says it will be an hour, so E and I head home to drop off the cake so it doesn’t melt in my AC-less car.
1600 – We are back in town waiting for L and MIL. E wants an ice cream so I buy him one for $0.50 using money I had in my Innbucks wallet. MIL calls and asks me to head over to where she is to pick L up since she can’t leave yet. E and I get there. MIL gets me sadza and goat tripe stew, which I eat a bit of to be polite even though I am not hungry. When I’m done, I pack up the kids and drive home. I bath and change into my pyjamas.
1800 – I feed the kids, and we play until their weekend bedtime of 8pm. I read them their bedtime stories and tuck them in. I watch TV and iron my morning laundry while having a gin and juice until 9pm, and head to read in bed. P and my nephew arrive home from their amateur soccer league match and subsequent outing with the boys. I fall asleep soon after.
Total spent - $49.50

Day 4
0700 – I’m woken up by L demanding that I come and play with them. I am still sleepy so I fob him off.
0900 - F knocks on the door and tells us she is off to church. I finally get out of bed and get dressed. I see the boys playing relatively peacefully so I let them continue with their antics. In the kitchen, I find F had cooked breakfast, and since I’m starving, I heat up water for coffee. L surprisingly isn’t hungry so I serve up breakfast for P and me. I have my daily multivitamin. P heads out to go fetch water, while I bath, change and hang out with the kids. I also do my French Duolingo practice for the day
1200 – I have played with the dogs and kids, and I am exhausted. I collapse onto the couch and watch MKR Australia. P gets home, and naps on the couch. I give the kids haircuts and baths.
1700 – L is hungry and really wants cake, so I feed the kids a dinner of sadza and sour milk. Then some cake for dessert. I also pack L’s school lunch, which will be a polony sandwich, a cupcake and juice. The kids play until its bedtime at 7pm. The usual routine, bedtime stories and tuck in is done
2000 – P and I watch a movie while having some alcoholic drinks.
2200 – Bedtime for us
Total spent - $0

Day 5
0600 – It’s my birthday today. I am going all out celebrating myself since TW I tried unaliving myself twice in the past year. L wishes me a happy birthday before he goes to school. I get birthday messages from my mum, dad, SILs, and friends. I also get a call from my brother, his wife and their son, and they sing to me. I feel very loved today. P goes to drop off E at school today so I can sleep in
0800 – I am finally up and hungry. I cook a quick breakfast of boiled eggs, and a bean curry. P takes my car to get serviced, while I bath, moisturize, contact lenses, do a full face of makeup and get dressed for the day. Today I wear a tie-dyed cutout mini-dress and sneakers, and my wavy headband wig
1300 – P is home and he drives me to a hotel outside town near a renowned tourist site in our country. We have a platter of fried fish, chicken strips, pork strips, fries, and a salad to share and multiple Savannah Drys while there. It’s really nice getting to reconnect after a very tumultuous year in our marriage. P pays.
1700 – We drive around the area, before heading home. Once we get home, P and my nephew go on a hunt for water, while I feed the kids. P and I head off to take our showers. I remember why I don’t do a full face of makeup when it take a long time to get the makeup off my face.
1900 – The family sings happy birthday, and we eat cake. Birthday gifts were gin and chocolate. I hustle the boys off to bed. No story today, as they went to bed later than usual. P watches TV while I read my novel.
2100 – Bedtime for the grownups
Total spent - $0

Day 6
0530 – I wake up and lie in bed for a bit. Then I read my novel some more.
0620 – I am up, and take my bath, moisturize, do my brows and get dressed. It’s cold this morning, so I wear a yellow dress with black polka dots, black tights and ankle boots. I pack up the cake I’m giving to my colleagues, as well as my water bottle. E and I head out. I drop E off at school, and go to the office. I log into the work register, turn on my computer, and check my emails. There are a few pressing issues I need to get up to speed with. One of my colleagues gives me $50 as a birthday gift. I also hand out the cake to my team.
0900 – Work is pretty quiet today, so I update my MD. I also receive news that one of my nephews is getting married. He is not that much younger than me, and could be my younger brother, but it makes me feel so old.
Note on my family: In our culture, even distant relatives are given close relationships so the large number of nephews/nieces is from those relationships. It’s a big thing done to maintain close family bonds. I have 4 actual (in a Western sense) nephews and nieces who are all under the age of 6.
1000 – I head to the supermarket and buy bread, onions, carrots, pork chops, pork trotters and my breakfast and lunch. This costs $25. The meat is the main cost driver here. I have a sausage roll, my multivitamin, supplement and milk for breakfast. I remember that I need to check if my stock exchange wallet was credited, ugh. The website is refusing to load and I’m very frustrated. I finally log in and see the amount is still not credited. I email and send a tweet to the stock exchange. Hopefully the tweet will get them to start moving.
1200 – My boss is mad. One member of my team left his desk without informing me and there’s an urgent matter. I was about to go downstairs to give P the groceries, so I stick around for a bit before committing the same offence as my subordinate, lol. I quickly get back into my office and check on work, sign some papers and letters, and clear out my emails.
1300 – My work bestie has to run other errands at lunch so I decide to stay in the office. I check my personal email and see I have received a dividend of $0.27, lol. The share price will probably drop soon, so I will buy more shares in this counter if I can get them to increase my shareholding. My goal for this year is to breach the 10,000 share mark for one counter. I suddenly remember I have work to do, so I use my lunch hour to do the work, and then take a quick break to eat my lunch of fries and a sausage and do some Swahili Duolingo practice.
1500 – I am thinking of going home when one of my team members calls me to deal with an angry client. I go to the office, and find out it’s a surprise birthday party from my team. I am so happy, lol. We have more cake, and there’s also fruit and juice. I head home feeling so appreciated with even more cake.
1700 – P and my nephew go out to get water. I warm up my bath water, and give the kids their dinner. Today its rice and croc meat. I make L’s lunch for tomorrow, a toasted polony sandwich and juice. I also pack my lunch, rice, a fried egg and peas. And some cake for my work bestie’s kids. I take my bath; change into my pyjamas and hound E to eat his food. If we let that kid be, he would probably live on the bits of our souls he sucks out daily by being stubborn. I am feeling nauseous so I have plain rice with a bit of avocado. The kids watch cartoons, while I do some more Swahili on Duolingo.
1900 – Bedtime for the kids. Today, there’s no demand for a bedtime story, so I just tuck them in and tell them I love them. I read my novel as increasingly feel more nauseated. I end up going to hurl my guts out. P comes home and finds me lying limply on the bed. He gives me a cuddle, and goes to eat his dinner. I get up but smell fish, and run back to throw up. If I hadn’t had a hysterectomy, I would be doing a pregnancy test ASAP.
2100 – I go to bed, and lie in bed for a bit, before finally drifting off.
Total spent - $25

Day 7
0500 – I wake up feeling nauseated again. Ugh, this reminds me of having hyperemesis while pregnant. I put my water on to heat and get back in bed to read some more.
0600 – E comes to lie on our bed. I get out of bed, and go throw up. I get my bath water, take my bath, moisturize and put my contacts in. I look like a reanimated corpse this morning. I do my brows to try bring a bit of life to my face and get dressed. It’s very misty and cold today so I put on warm brown tights, a long black dress, my warm jacket and ballet flats. I grab my lunch and the cake, pop E into the car and head out. Visibility is extremely low, so I drive slowly. I don’t know why people like surprising other drivers by having their cars pop out of the mist without switching on their headlights. I successfully avoid the drivers who hate life and drop E off at school before heading to work.
0700 – I am in the office, and I log into the register, before turning on my computer and checking my work email. Not too much in there, so I check my personal email. My stock exchange wallet has finally been credited with the $100. I also ponder whether I should pull the trigger on a V-part wig.
I do my weekly report, and start doing some boring work in the system. I realise I didn’t save the work I did yesterday, so I have to re-do it, so I can have the list of error messages to send to ICT.
0830 – Everyone is in the office, so I do some reshuffling of duties, so that essential areas are covered while one of my colleagues is on leave. I give the cake to work bestie, who tells me how much her daughter was excited over the cake yesterday. It’s now time for me to put my head down and really focus on knocking out the system work today. I also log into an online training, and I listen while doing my work. My mum also deposits money for my birthday gift and to spoil her grandkids.
1000 – I log into my stock exchange account and buy shares for $99.14 (doesn’t count as spending, as the money was moved before the MD started). The deadline for other departments to submit their weekly reports to me for consolidation has passed so I start following up. One department is a big problem as they always send their report late. Le sigh. I draft a very passive aggressive email to them. I also decide not to buy the wig and instead ask the person making me my custom earrings that I got myself for my birthday to bill me the rest of the money so I can pay and move the remainder of the money in my account into savings. Our currency has taken an enormous hit in the last week, and is free falling dramatically. I’d rather keep USD cash than money in my account at this point. The training finally ends.
1100 – I’m getting hungry so I go warm up my lunch, sprinkle on peri peri Aromat and dig in. Yum. I also have my multivitamin and supplement. A lady who sells local snacks comes in. She persuades me to buy maputi (corn nuts mixed with roasted peanuts) for $0.50. I buy them for my afternoon snack. I end up sending the report with missing statistics, and tell the department to send directly to the compiler, as they were late. That was a very aggressive email tbh. I’m still hungry, so I munch on my maputi, leaving the peanuts because I don’t feel like eating them lately.
1200 – I see a missed call from a number I don’t know. I call and it turns out they had sent money to my mobile wallet mistakenly. I check the mobile wallet and it shows it had an extra $11. I send the money back to the person. Times are too tough to keep people’s money
1400 – I snack on a few skittles instead of having more food. I just want something to entertain my mouth, I’m not hungry at all. I review more work and drink more water. The jeweler has sent the payment request for the earrings. I pay $100 (total spent on the earrings comes to $200, which is worth it for sterling silver custom made Jewellery. I use $50 of the birthday money from my mum to cover for part of this expense)
1600 – Finally time to go home. I shut down my computer, and drive home. Once I’m home, I put on my bath water, and help L do his homework. Then I do some Swahili Duolingo practice and pack L’s lunch for tomorrow. He requested maize (corn on the cob), a boiled egg and a naartjie. His wish is my command for once. I also pack my lunch, a boiled egg, peanut butter sandwich and a bit of birthday cake. The jeweler sends pictures of the final product. They are absolutely gorgeous. Happy 34th birthday to me!!!
1800 – I serve the kids their dinner, and go to take my bath. P sends a text that he will be home late as they are working late today. I have my own dinner while persuading E to eat his food
1900 – Bedtime for the kids. I read them their bedtime stories, tuck them in and tell them I love them. Then I go to watch TV. I’m catching up on Married to Real Estate, Food Factory and Man Vs Food. You can tell that reality TV is my jam.
2100 – I decide to have some decaf black coffee and cake as my bedtime snack. P and my nephew arrive home. They are later than they thought they would be because nephew dropped his phone in the middle of the highway and they were searching for it. Because nephew’s ancestors were on the job, they found it intact. It’s a big deal because this is a major highway and huge trucks use that road constantly. I chat with P as he has his dinner and takes his bath.
2200 – Cuddles and bedtime for us

Total spent today – $100

Total spent this week – $204.50

Spending by categories
Food & Drink – $84.50
Home & Health – $0
Clothing & Beauty – $110
Transportation – $0
Fun & Entertainment – $10

Reflections on this week’s spending
The spending is pretty much about normal for me tbh (excluding the cake and earrings). I had quite a bit of petrol in the tank so I didn’t need to top up my tank this week. The converted US$ prices are a bit inaccurate since our currency had a big drop this week, and most of my spending is in local currency. I could reign in my spending a bit, and focus more on investing. However, I do enjoy using my money to bring joy to my kids and myself. Particularly myself after the absolutely shitty year I had.

2023.06.06 23:01 matthewstocks Roommate stole all my Stuff

So I’ve been living with two people. For anonymity we can call them Bill and Sonny. Bill is my older brother and sonny is a disabled older gentleman he takes care of for money. My brother moved him into the house to make taking care of him easier. It’s a rental and my brother was the original lease holder until he moved us in. In Jan. we signed a 6 month lease agreement that was to be renewed at the end of this month. Due to activities within the home that would immediately cause us to be kicked out, and other general annoyances I decided I would move out and not sign back on. I told my roommates that I would be gone by the end of the lease renewal. Well it wasn’t taken well, and some comments were made that made me feel better if I stayed outside the residence until my lease was up. I grabbed some important items and stayed with my other sibling. Texted both roommates that I would be returning for my belongings in a day or two. Texted them the morning of and said if be by in a few hours. My other brother goes with me just to play peace maker. Well I enter the home and I’m told I’m not allowed to go to my part of the house which is upstairs because “he already has tenants in there.” I said that my belonging were still there and he told me that they weren’t and motioned towards the garage. Well what he said was mine was a sleeping bag, a 32 in tv that wasn’t mine, and a trekking pole. He locked himself on the top floor and stopped answering his phone. He then sent me a text saying I abandoned my property and due to failure to pay rent I’m not allowed to just walk into his house. Now I’ve paid him in cash every month and he writes a Cheque to the leasing office for the house. I had just given him rent the week beforehand because he was short on money, and I figured I could just pay my share of rent to him early so he could take care of his finances. I called the police and when they showed up he latched the door Shut with the safety chain so I couldn’t get in with my keys. He then ignored me and the police yelling into the house. Cops let me kick the door in because I’m on the lease, I had mail in my name, and my keys worked on the locks. He started yelling to the police about how I’m not allowed in and blah blah blah. They made him sit down at a dining room table while I grabbed what I could. A lot of my belonging were stolen. My bed, a gun, multiple knives and camping equipment, my social security card and passport etc etc. I have a list. I called the leasing office and told them everything that happened including meth being present in the home. They didn’t seem to care or to be too helpful. They told me I should sign an amendment taking me off the lease. I said I’d rather stay on until the lease was up this month so I still have legal rights to enter the property to get anything. They asked if I wanted to go back. I said not at this time but If I decided to before the month was over I want to have legal rights to enter. They didn’t seem too happy about me saying this so I can’t only assume I’m not getting any help from them. She told me he tried calling and asking them for documentation that stated I abandoned my property, and then backtracked the next day and said he only asked for documents stating I was moving out. She also said she couldn’t give me any documents stating I have legal rights to enter. “What about the lease I signed in January maam?” …. Few moments of silence followed by them saying ok. I asked if they needed anything from me to prove what I’m saying like photos of the drugs being done in the home etc etc. They told me no. Kinda don’t know what to do next now. Because he pawned a lot of my stuff.

2023.06.06 18:32 Issas7 AITA for not wanting my sister to stay at my apartment and share my bed during her visit?

My (22M) sister (22F) and her boyfriend (22M) wanna visit me in July. I study abroad and haven't seen her in two years. Yesterday she told me her bf's passport application was rejected, she has to come alone. My parents said she will stay at my apartment and share my bed for the two weeks. I was shocked bc I have a single bed and it's cramped for two grown-ups. I have a habit of watching videos in bed until I feel sleepy too. I'm a trans guy and grew up as a girl. I came out to them five years ago. Their suggestions yesterday made me uncomfortable. I feel like they still treat me as a girl subconsciously: they wouldn't ask me to share my bed with her if I was a cis guy. I live in an apartment with 2 bedrooms. It's not allowed to bring guests to stay in the 2nd bedroom even when it’s empty. I don't think it's appropriate to let her stay for free bc ppl are supposed to pay rent to stay. I’ve told them I have 12 hrs of classes per week in summer so won't be available 24/7. Them assuming I should be a full-time host just makes me think they haven't considered my own schedule. As an introvert, I don't wanna stay with anyone in the same room 24/7 bc I need alone time to recharge and be productive. I fought a lot with my family back at home bc they would just walk in and vacuum when I was studying or enter the bathroom when I was showering which stressed me a lot. I was not allowed to close or lock the door. I never knew this isn’t normal until I had my own room here. I offered to book airbnb nearby cheaper than hotels. They pay for the visit and say I don't need to worry about money. I don't understand why they think sharing my single bed for two weeks is better than booking a decent place for her? She’ll have jetlag so it won't be comfortable for her sharing a bed either. My dad said he doesn't think it's safe for her to live and commute alone and didn't accept my suggestion. I was living alone for the past few years and they didn't have this worry? She's good at English and I don't think it'll be a problem living and visiting places alone as a 22-year-old. She can ask me if she has troubles anyway. My parents bombarded me with msgs and calls asking why I wanna be alone when I haven’t seen her for 2 years. They said she'll be happy just to accompany me. I don't think it's worth it to spend thousands$ for a 12-hr flight just to stay at home with me all day. I feel pressured knowing someone travels this far just to see me bc my schedule doesn't allow me to attend to her 24/7. It'll distract me having someone in the room watching tv scrolling thru their phone when I'm trying to study. My parents said they're cancelling the ticket. This is the first time I stand up for myself bc I think I need to set my boundaries if I want a healthy relationship with them without compromising my own needs. AITA?

2023.06.06 18:29 matthewstocks Roommate stole all my Stuff

So I’ve been living with two people. For anonymity we can call them Bill and Sonny. Bill is my older brother and sonny is a disabled older gentleman he takes care of for money. My brother moved him into the house to make taking care of him easier. It’s a rental and my brother was the original lease holder until he moved us in. In Jan. we signed a 6 month lease agreement that was to be renewed at the end of this month. Due to activities within the home that would immediately cause us to be kicked out, and other general annoyances I decided I would move out and not sign back on. I told my roommates that I would be gone by the end of the lease renewal. Well it wasn’t taken well, and some comments were made that made me feel better if I stayed outside the residence until my lease was up. I grabbed some important items and stayed with my other sibling. Texted both roommates that I would be returning for my belongings in a day or two. Texted them the morning of and said if be by in a few hours. My other brother goes with me just to play peace maker. Well I enter the home and I’m told I’m not allowed to go to my part of the house which is upstairs because “he already has tenants in there.” I said that my belonging were still there and he told me that they weren’t and motioned towards the garage. Well what he said was mine was a sleeping bag, a 32 in tv that wasn’t mine, and a trekking pole. He locked himself on the top floor and stopped answering his phone. He then sent me a text saying I abandoned my property and due to failure to pay rent I’m not allowed to just walk into his house. Now I’ve paid him in cash every month and he writes a Cheque to the leasing office for the house. I had just given him rent the week beforehand because he was short on money, and I figured I could just pay my share of rent to him early so he could take care of his finances. I called the police and when they showed up he latched the door Shut with the safety chain so I couldn’t get in with my keys. He then ignored me and the police yelling into the house. Cops let me kick the door in because I’m on the lease, I had mail in my name, and my keys worked on the locks. He started yelling to the police about how I’m not allowed in and blah blah blah. They made him sit down at a dining room table while I grabbed what I could. A lot of my belonging were stolen. My bed, a gun, multiple knives and camping equipment, my social security card and passport etc etc. I have a list. I called the leasing office and told them everything that happened including meth being present in the home. They didn’t seem to care or to be too helpful. They told me I should sign an amendment taking me off the lease. I said I’d rather stay on until the lease was up this month so I still have legal rights to enter the property to get anything. They asked if I wanted to go back. I said not at this time but If I decided to before the month was over I want to have legal rights to enter. They didn’t seem too happy about me saying this so I can’t only assume I’m not getting any help from them. She told me he tried calling and asking them for documentation that stated I abandoned my property, and then backtracked the next day and said he only asked for documents stating I was moving out. She also said she couldn’t give me any documents stating I have legal rights to enter. “What about the lease I signed in January maam?” …. Few moments of silence followed by them saying ok. I asked if they needed anything from me to prove what I’m saying like photos of the drugs being done in the home etc etc. They told me no. Kinda don’t know what to do next now. Because he pawned a lot of my stuff.

2023.06.06 07:53 PinkPengin [Thank You] Very, very behind

These are not in any particular order - some may have come a few weeks ago, some today.
But I do have good news: I did NOT work on cards at all this weekend, because I spent Friday evening, Saturday and Sunday all doing amazing fun things with my wife as we kicked off our celebration of Pride month. For those who don't know, we currently have two houses, in two different states, one where she mostly lives (in the U.S. Pacific Northwest) and one where I mostly live (in the U.S. Southwest, known as the Cactus Cathouse). We are gearing up to sell our northern outpost house and live together in the Cactus Cathouse, and this was sort of our "last hurrah" weekend before showings and whatnot really get started.
But now, I'm trying to get cardthings caught up so that I'm not trying to deal with them during the eventual relocation, starting with these thanks and hopefully progressing on to a request and an offer tomorrow as time permits.
Also, someone in this (long) list sent me a lovely, large rainbow snail vinyl sticker, but I couldn't tell whose mail it came from. (Maybe u/amyt13?) Anyway, whoever you are, I appreciate you immensely and I'm sorry for not organizing myself better.
Thanks to:
(First of all, thanks to the flair team, because yikes this is the worst and I'm very sorry!)
u/amabisca - This handmade purple card (my favorite color!) is amazing and was such an uplifting surprise. Thank you so, so much!
u/amyt13 (x2) - Thank you for the beautiful handmade collage card, the Oscar Wilde card, and all the extras! I hope you are able to find a good place to call home too - the one you were describing sounds like my kind of town, and I hope it works out. I'll cross my fingers for you!
u/AppleCritter723 - This cute botanical card/letter I an opening from you is dated in April. APRIL, friend. I am sorry. It is full of good news and cute stickers and I swear I will write actual mail and not just send weird envelopes of things to you and your "bigger little" soon. I hope your Memorial Day weekend travels weren't too bad, and that Gandalf the adventurer is letting you occasionally stay inside. You created a meow-monster!
u/awachob - Goose!! I can't believe I got to be the goose! Thank you so much for a fun offer. (And for the neat stickers!)
u/blue-wanderer-quartz - I am very late saying thanks for the Five of Pentacles cat tarot sticker reading, but it was incredibly appropriate to read about pooling resources as my wife and I re-combine households in part due to love but in large part due to, well, wanting to actually have disposable income! I think it's interesting that we both chose pentacles for each other! (And the cat postcard your reading is on is very cute, I don't want to forget that!)
u/bluedecemberart (x2) - I love the vintage VA hospital postcard from Maine... and we already chatted about the "not noticing the chores" thing but rereading the card as I went to post this made me sure again that we are somehow the same person. WEIRD, but COOL. And your New York skyline postcard is lovely, and now I want to watch A Crown of Candy!
u/championvilla - I adore this MarioKart card! My wife and I used to play a lot (right now, we have the game systems packed for house-showing). I hope that your husband is continuing to feel better (and that the cat finally decided to get off of him, lol!)
u/chiquita61 - The sloth mermaid dolphin thank-you card with penguin stickers is absolutely wonderful... and I am so happy you liked my "reject" sticker card in all its glory!
u/comingtogetyoubabs (x6) - This crystal ball card with Petit's ABSOLUTE WISDOM is just amazing, friend. (Also, did I get a little teary at "writer of hugs in card form" MAYBE). And the amazing goodies you included - the cat-yang patch, your beautiful handmade notepaper... there is no way I deserve the awesomeness that is you "buzzing" into my life. And then the second cat card and all the goodies, including the adorable bookmark...! And THEN I realized you had hand-drawn me three tarot cards that you wrote about, AND then I found your origami letter... I am in awe, friend. You are wonderful!
u/cswl (x10) - This is what I get for not keeping up with my thanks, I feel silly with how behind I am for you, my dear friend! (Both in thanking AND in writing back.) Thank you for the cute plant notecard (I do not do Informed Delivery because it will just make me sad, I think); the red fox postcard (did you go to Fogo, which is one of my favorite places ever??); the "sources of acid" postcard (I always feel better when I have time for myself too, and also always delay it too long); the absolutely delicious LouPaper charcuterie board postcard (I have both too many cards and somehow never the ones I really feel like I wish I had to send people); the postcard from The Lion King (yay garage sale days!); the Strange Planet vibrating cat postcard (so outnumbered, I have given up, they are in charge now); the two different New Yorker cartoon cards (you are 100% right - hard times are harder on the one holding down the fort in SO many ways, been there/done that, and also guilt trips suck and I'm sorry the person tried to send you on one); the cute bird saying hi card (the one-house thing was her idea first, and it will definitely be for the best, though I need to make sure I keep focusing on me too!); and especially thanks for "Content Lives Everywhere" collage you made - that is just wonderful. You are so great. I am sorry I'm such a bad postal pal but I'm trying to do better!
u/dazeyferry (x2) - My dear friend, this penguin with flowers card is AMAZING and I am so, so grateful that you thought of me when you saw it. And the little floral thank-you card addition was perfect as well. I love you and I am so glad we are friends! As far as bingeworthy shows - have you seen Ted Lasso? Schmigadoon? (Both on AppleTV.) Those are amazing. We also started watching Hello, Tomorrow, which is a bit sad sometimes but really good! I'll try to think of some more, too.
u/draconic_healing - I love this little tiny Polaroid-style postcard - it's adorable! Please pet the kitty for me - I couldn't tell if you wrote "Bear" or "Bean" but both are great names!
u/dwrfstr - This gold penguin card is amazing and adorable and I cannot believe your luck to find it thrifted! I picked up a set of hundreds of vintage postcards from an art reuse store that's near where we met up, and I ended up with, like, 16 of the same weird chapel at a church camp in South Dakota, so you definitely win...
u/fancayschmanzayyy - Your cat thank-you card was wonderful (as were the cool stickers!) And most of all, I very much appreciate you telling me about your act of kindness and I especially appreciate your caregiving nature. I cared for my mom for many years before she passed away and stories like the one you told will always be especially important to me. You make a difference and I am so grateful you exist!
u/Fancykiddens (x2) - I feel terribly, terribly guilty for how late I am thanking you for this amazing CARD-CEPTION package!! First, from the pengin section: the pengin family you drew me, how awesome are they?! You are so talented! I almost never keep envelopes but this one got immediately saved with my "penguin stash." Then there was your beautiful handmade Frida Kahlo card - exactly my vibe, I love it! The penguin goodie bag with the penguins and their fish snackles inside was adorable too. And then, moving to the "monsteroo" or cute monster section, I adored your Monsters Inc. letter and goodies as well! I especially liked hearing that, at the time you wrote it, you were feeling particularly well and accomplished, and I adored hearing how much carding has helped your outlook. SAME, FRIEND. So much so!!
u/feellikebeingajerk (x2) - Holly Hobbie card (the first, maybe?) has arrived! And yes, it brought back awesome memories. I didn't get a lot of "trendy" things growing up, as my parents and I didn't have a lot of money, but there was a discount department store near us, sort of an early version of a T.J. Maxx or Ross that was called Hills, and it would sometimes get slight misprints or seconds of things like bedding, which is, I am -positive-, how I came to be able to have Holly Hobbie. And I don't remember anything "wrong" with it, so, way to go, Mom of PinkPengin, for that find! LOL. Also, thanks for the cool Papyrus thank-you card from your random offer, and for the stickers!
u/fieldofcabins - This adorable bee thank-you postcard is so great (and the penguin as the stamp image, ahhh!) I am glad your dad is healing and please let him know I'm still thinking of him. (And of course I'm always thinking of you, too!)
u/GizmoDOS - Thanks for the solar system postcard, friend! I loved hearing from you. Life really has been hectic lately. I hope yours is moving in the direction of settling down. Mine is going to be rough briefly but then hopefully a lot smoother!
u/hermitcreature - I love this Studio Ghibli-themed card and all the great stickers and dragon facts from your book (and the amazing Zimbabwean owl stamp)! I hope you will like your card from me in exchange when it arrives - I just sent it this week, I am very sorry!
u/HexagonalRainbow - I loved your anime postcard but even more, I loved hearing about your concert!
u/isar-love (x2) - These cartoon owls with their hats and shoes on your card from March are AMAZING! (And the accompanying postcard with more behatted owls also made my day!) I agree with you very much that owl facial expressions are the thing that especially warms my heart to them. They seem so intelligent and curious and often kind (especially in illustrations) with their big eyes looking right at me! I have several little stuffed-animal friend owls, including two very special ones named Swoops (who is tan) and Fwoops (who is pink, though his name reference is from fuschia - he is a "Fuschia Swoops" - way better than a Pink Swoops, who I fear would have to be "Poops," LOL!) Thank you so much for your wonderful kindness and friendship and fun mail!
u/jaimekj - Thank you for the floral card, great stickers and most importantly your note and your friendship! I do like New Mexico (more than my part of the Southwest, honestly, but we had family reasons we picked where we did)! I'm crossing my fingers about an interest-rate drop. If I had my choice, I'd either like to find someone bigger in Washington, or move back to Pennsylvania, I think. There are ups and downs to both. And I will VERY much hate going back to snow, that's one thing I do love about where I am in the desert!
u/jvanct88 - I cannot tell you how thrilled I am to have a letter from you with an update (and updated address), dear friend! In one way, I am VERY sorry for all the things you have been finding out, but in another way I am happy that you finally know the truth and I believe that knowing it will be very helpful in having closure and a good feeling as you move to a new chapter in your life. And I am VERY hopeful that your tattoo came out amazing! I am a big, big fan of tattoos and piercings. A funny story is that I got 2 new tattoos and several piercings when my wife and I were separated, including a nosering, which she always said she hated. (She didn't mind other tattoos and piercings generally.) When we got back together, she apologized for ever saying that, and said how good it looks on me. That was nice, but I very plainly also told her, "I wouldn't care even if you hate it, because I love it and I'm keeping it forever." LOL! Anyway, I love this dinosaur princess cactus card and I am very happy to hear from you and will write to you again soon!
u/KatDuq (x3) - My dear friend!! This butterfly card you made to thank me for MY card in honor of your new letter opener is beautiful (as are the included penguin stickers, which are beautiful, of course!) I also loved your separate letter talking about the things you make. I do journal, sometimes, but I suffer from the problem of all notebook and journal-havers... I hate to USE the beautiful books I have lest I "mess them up!" What really helped me get out of that mindset somewhat was actually the Happy Planner notebooks, because I felt like I could always remove pages and rearrange! And now I am getting into bookbinding and I feel like that helps too because I can more easily make things "modular" and not have the fear of ruining a whole gigantic book right off the bat. I know that's perfectionism talking and I am working on getting rid of that mindset altogether, but for now, baby steps. And HUGE congrats on what you've sold, you definitely have a customer in me if you get an online store set up! Finally, thank you for the lovely oracle reading, which (unsurprisingly) was just what I needed to hear now, tonight, as I write this! I specifically didn't look closely at it until now because I figured I'd see it when the time was right and... yup. I did. You are amazing and I appreciate you sharing your beautiful new deck with me. (And that logo stamp you got! SO worth it, it looks amazing!)
u/littlemermaidxx - Your Pride Is Everyday postcard is beautiful - thank you so much! I have Pride happy mail coming your way too.
u/maiiiu (x3) - WOW, you are way too kind to me!! What an adorable thank-you postcard, first of all. And I adored your wonderful handmade penguin collage thank-you card too, and loved hearing the good news about your summer trip plans. I hope it is a truly special time for you and your dear best friend! And then this custom penguin stationery... WOW. You are just amazing and I am very grateful! (Also, the way you attached your sticker gifts in your collage card was great, I might steal that method.)
u/melhen16 - Where did you find this amazing desert-post-office-style card? Did you make it? It's amazing! (And thank you for the beautiful stickers, too!)
u/mumbagoespainting (x3) - Your handmade hometown card is so beautiful, my friend! I loved hearing how you learned to say it. (I admit - I get that one wrong on the first try and have to correct myself every time, despite being from not terribly far south, where we heard it more than occasionally!) And your watercolor dragon is absolutely fabulous!! I loved hearing that we have very similar color tastes - purples, grays, teal! Seeing the dragon pick up those colors was perfect. Finally, your black-and-white abstract card with the glitter made me smile, though I was sad to read about why you had to miss the trip... I hope you are feeling better! And, of course, thank you again for all your stickers and other extras and most importantly for your kindness and friendship. I am beyond grateful for you!!
u/ninajyang - I like the crafty postcard from Pipsticks! And yeah... Hairspray... love the music, definitely not sure about some other things... sigh.
u/nirelleth - I absolutely adore this great penguin and fox postcard for our "wish" exchange! I hope you like yours when it arrives, too. (I just sent it last week, I am so sorry for the wait!) I think my favorite fact about penguins is that they are not all polar; in fact, some of my favorites are temperate ones. (I say, in fact, that I myself am a "temperate pengin!")
u/non_avian (x3) - I am VERY sorry this has taken me so long to write (and even to open and fully enjoy). Your handmade Scoffby postcard with my past-present-future reading was absolutely amazing and is going on my "display shelf" of some of my most treasured cards! I need to know how you made his crystal ball, which is gorgeous! Also, please tell Scoffby that I am very much food-motivated (in fact, I just bribed myself tonight with hibachi). So, his signature chant is VERY well-placed when directed at me. I also adored your letter and the cute paper it was written on, and I am thrilled about the Furby washi card and all the goodies, too! I had no idea that Furby washi even existed, though I guess I shouldn't be surprised... and the capy noodles sticker and adorable penguins and everything else... I am so grateful. I have some mail coming your way very soon; all the "parts" are ready, I just need to put them together and actually get it sent!
u/Peonynote (x2) - Your cat thank-you card was adorable and most importantly, I am so excited for all your travels (and I LOVED seeing your penguin friends together!) And the lovely rainbow card with penguin stickers and super-cute penguin sticky note, in honor of Pride Month, made my day! I hope your walking is going well, still, now that it's getting warmer and stickier.
u/ResidentComposer1939 - I loved your sweet bird notecard and your penguin drawing (it's WAY better than my drawings, let me tell you!)
u/SherlockLady (x3) - Your beautiful butterfly card was lovely as it was, and then I saw the cute mini-card with the reminder about being the happiest/healthiest version of myself, AND the special penguin painting from your young carding apprentice... and wow, I just felt so special! What an awesome gift.
u/soft_distortion - This Gender Is Such a Drag postcard is perfecttttttttt. I loved hearing about the drag brunches too!
u/thecalendonianrose - This square penguin card is amazing and I am so grateful that you thought of sending it to me! (And all the stickers are lovely, thank you!) My wife and allllll the kitties say hello back.
u/TigerLady13 - This is definitely a late thanks, I apologize! But I appreciated the vintage Continental Divide postcard and the "Peng-Win" pun... made me giggle!
u/TyeDyeAmish - I love this pufferfish card, and I have really enjoyed getting to chat with you recently! Most importantly, how was the book sale?! I'm fairly certain it's one I've been to in the past, based on the date you said you were going, and I miss it and a few others in the area so much!
u/umeshufan - Why, yes, this Cat Island postcard DOES look like my house, and yes, there are really 19 inside, and even funnier, YES, I am allergic to cats. The thing is, you do build up a tolerance to ones you are around regularly, but when I travel and then come back, it is truly a nightmare. Thankfully I almost never let any in my bedroom and never to sleep, so I can at least breathe overnight!
u/wabisabi_sf (x2) - My friend, I am in awe of these amazing pink-and-penguin-themed pieces of happy mail!! I had never seen these before and I am DEFINITELY going to be getting more. You are so wonderful to me!
u/welshfancy (x5) - Thanks for the Laughlin postcard (very belatedly)! Your trip to Long Beach sounds almost as multi-stop as my recent cards' journeys to you, though thankfully you didn't need your passport, at least?! And thank you also for the amazing handmade "blooms" collage card (which, as far as I'm concerned, is appropriate for spring OR summer, so it seems perfectly timed to me); the great cat mini-card that you wrote while either eating breakfast or getting your tires changed on your travels; the penguin-with-J-based-life-preserver doodle (which I thought was GREAT, so don't even say it's worse than your others, which I also liked!); and your lovely letter on penguin paper, plus of course the bonus stationery! You spoil me!! I'm thinking of you as you try to decide "what's next" locationally, too.
u/yetanotherblankface - I think your beautiful handmade card for the "Hometown" meta challenge is giving exactly the right vibes! It certainly made me feel cozy and relaxed, which is the feeling I'd most like to associate with home.
u/yviantics - Your hand-drawn Pink Party Penguin postcard with its lovely hat, and the great penguin sticker, absolutely made my day!! I do not draw well at all and I am always amazed when people who can will share their talent with me. Thank you so, so much! (And, by the way, I tried the bananas-and-barbecue-chips combo and was really surprised at how good it was, so thanks for that, too!)
u/56thorns and u/UseYourRuler - Thank you for the wonderful postcard from the "Falls!" My wife and I were there to ring in the New Year for 2019 and I've been a couple other times too. Such a lovely place for a getaway, and it sounds like you had fun!
u/todayisfab, u/sebisrude and u/KeenEvergreen - In my stack of not-thanked-yet mail I found my very own postcard from our meetup, and it made me smile all over again. Thank you all so much, again, for a fun day. And to whichever of you put penguin stickers on this along with the cacti - I am super impressed that you pulled that off without me noticing, they are WAY too cute.

2023.06.02 23:15 Blemmyae0 ZERØ POINT

Trickier than most, this new virus can spread in a host without symptoms, and before leaving the house I search repeatedly for clues to its transmission. It travels through droplets or aerosols, hanging in air currents for hours, “living” on surfaces for days after dropping to the ground. It can also, apparently, be passed through every bodily excretion imaginable. This sudden focus shift from the external macro world to a more microscopic fixation makes me increasingly aware of other germs, bacteria, and micro-animalia in my surroundings. I’m even becoming petrified of the organisms already living in me and on me. There are enough bacteria in my stomach’s microbiome, controlling my actions, mood and thoughts. I don’t need any more of my strings pulled, or my flesh used as another ecosystem or flaky habitat. These thoughts that manifest in my head and throughout the nerves in my body keep me up at night while staring at my puckered ceiling reminiscent of mini stalactites growing slowly over a millennia.
Waking to a rooster sampled alarm, eyes already open from not sleeping, I get dressed in the expendable clothes laid out, just in case there is a need to burn them later, for fear of contamination. Before wobbling out the door I cautiously snag a coveted N95 mask and clear plastic goggles left over from a few failed painting projects, hoping they will protect me from the bad miasma air that circulates outside and within the airport. After watching about 7 YouTube tutorials from 7 separate 11-year olds, I begin to strap the filter on my head as I walk out the door. Grabbing the two yellow elastic bands, stretching the mask over my face and losing my grip, the mask snaps back, hitting me in the eye, leaving it red and itchy.
A bright red Tesla Uber with yellow vinyl seating is hailed on my phone. The driver, who also wears a mask, has a strange glaze in her eye and only says “hello” and “thanks” in a raspy baritone swell. The ride through the Hong Kong highways only takes 30 minutes, with a thumping soundtrack that is consistently ravaging my already nervous temperament, the trees and a mishmash of multidimensional architecture whizzes by the windows. When we pull up to the airport, I reach for the door handle with a tissue, carefully putting it into a make-shift zip lock trash can in my pocket. Stepping out of the car I look up to see hordes of people in full and faux hazmat suits—some with raincoat jumpsuits, snorkelling goggles and scarfs covering their faces.
Inside the airport invisible speakers play adult contemporary on loop with a sound that tastes like crackling candy. Dragging my suitcase, while imagining the wheels are building up a thick coating of virus RNA, I nearly run into a pole. Finally my focus shifts to walking and I make it to the airline counter with a long queue that destroys my nerves even further. After an hour I manage to check my bag, pouring a spludge of sanitiser on my passport after it’s been molested and fingered by the redheaded man at the counter. Strolling through the terminals, pedestrian eyes dart around with an anxiety that’s meant to be quelled by the puppy fail videos playing across all TV screens, replacing the current news. Contrary to being comforting, these animals falling, sliding, and chasing their members gives an off-putting odour of uncanny impotence.
During my walk to the terminal terminal, I try to keep my distance, six feet away they say, but people are pushing through and I’m dodging them like a roller derby on the people mover. Each brush beside me feels like a laceration from the whip that befalls all those who the virus exposes and it lingers on like a phantom limb. Finally making it to my gate number C45 there is a seat alone in the corner. Reaching in my pocked before sitting down, I pull out alcohol wet wipes used to sterilise the hard plastic for my bum’s imminent arrival.

2023.05.31 11:40 Cardlinger 2023 Twilight Struggle Convention trip report – Stockholm

With apologies in advance to readership this is bound to be from an egocentric point of view, but I’ll try to add some colour from how the rest of the tournament was going too ;)
My first international trip since the pandemic eased (thankfully last year was in London!), and I was greeted for the first time by being stuck in the non-EU passport queue. I took the opportunity to loudly ask my UK counterparts in the queue who’d voted for this, as I surely didn’t. Thankfully I had a travelling buddy in the form of Fruitstrike, who was taking in the tournament for the first time!
We travelled on Friday and whilst a bunch of people met up for a pre-tournament drink, I took the opportunity to indulge another gaming vice and hit up Dragon’s Lair for Friday Night Magic (for those who care, I came 2nd in my pod, which is good as we redrafted rares so I got some nice cards!). I then got a full night’s sleep knowing the mental bludgeoning that awaited us over the next two days. Having gone 5-3 and 4-4 at previous conventions I was hoping for a similar outcome this year, but am coming off the back of a late 2022 disaster of going 2-8 / 5-15 in RTSL/ITSL, so can’t say I was brimming with overconfidence :P
Saturday rolled around and I found myself in paradise, having Swedish meatballs for breakfast. And pickles with my bread roll! Seriously, Scandinavia knows how to do breakfast. Also, painfully aware how cramped for time getting 4 games of TS in is, I ate looooooads and sought to fuel myself with caffeine and sugar the rest of the day. Getting from in-town to our games venue was a breeze, with Stockholm’s well-connected public transport system and app – Anton (stenskott), our host and organiser, set us up in a board games café/bar called Alphaspel. This was one of the best venues to date, with loads of room, lots of games tables, and a well-stocked bar connected.
We made some introductions and hellos, both to returning faces (people like Anton, OF COURSE Tasos, Karl Johan, Shez and Sean, David, Ziemowit etc. who have regularly attended these conventions), new faces to tournaments like Linh Le and Christian Månsson, but also some great and good names in the TS community like Fredrik Adlercreutz, Henrik Pettersson, Ryan Pindulic and Luis Rubio – BasqueMex, one of our knights in shining armour who keep the community organised, which is no mean feat! We then got our pairings and sat down to get to work.
Anton had prepared a lovely trophy for the winner and a couple of novelty prizes, including a mug for anyone who was dealt all 5x 4-op cards in Early War (“Mr Big Spender”), and anyone who evented Summit for ‘meaningful stakes’ (“Event Summit, You Coward”). There was discussion pre-tournament on our WhatsApp group thread that the chances of the first mug being claimed was pretty slim even with 8 games in the brackets. Our host needn’t have worried though, as Davorac completed that task within about 20 minutes of the first coup roll!
I was paired against Jarek Grzaslewicz in game one, and I also got all 5x 4-op cards (the last appearing in the turn 3 deal), so was pipped to the mug by Davorac, alas! However, the important thing was the win, and with an ops surfeit in the early war I (as USA) easily weathered Jarek’s USSR attacks and eventually ground it out to a final scoring win, going 1-0.
My second game I was paired against Ziemowit. How did that happen? Z lost game 1 :O I also have to add we’ve never played across the table before. I was USSR and thankfully was able to score Asia in T2 and T3 for -7vp each time, which gave me a solid buffer. Also heartening was to hear every time I played an acceptable move I got the “makes sense” response, which warmed my cockles each time, as positive feedback from a far better player is music to my ears! However, let’s not forget this is a game against Z, and the game is never over till it’s over, which means it was a relief when I was re-dealt Asia scoring in Turn 8 (playing it to an “oh, come on!”), and following it up with Wargames to close the game out. Ziemowit is 0-2 starting the tournament and I’m 2-0, now that’s an upset.
For match 3 I move to the ‘feature table’ (Anton had set up a stream, you can catch at to play Tasos. Tasos was my first ever Convention pairing in 2019 and we hadn’t been matched since, so it was nice to play him! I was USSR and benefitted from about 6 war rolls going my way, so the match ended in a win in final scoring for me, and I’m off to my best ever start for sure, 3-0. Nosebleed heights!
Match 4 for the day and it being swiss pairings I’m up against another unbeaten player in Ryan Pindulic. I was USA and Ryan applied excellent pressure throughout the game, so by Turn 10 it was a pretty lost cause (it had been for some turns!), with no defcon gambits or Europe Control possible, so I took my opportunity at -19 in headline at Defcon 3 to event Summit. After some feverish discussion with Anton, where I basically admitted I was only doing it to win the novelty mug, and Anton suggested that the strategic answer was to say this was the only way to prolong the game (and I said ‘yeah, that’s definitely why I’m eventing summit), I event it, lost the roll at a +1 modifier, and Ryan wins on VPs to go 4-0 on the day.
Heck, I’m chuffed at 3-1, but I think the feelgood story of the day is Sean, who had a bit of a ‘mare in 2022 at London, is also 4-0 on the day, kapow! We repair to a nearby pub, have some beers and pizza, and dissect the day, before getting some sleep and doing it all again the next day.
Day 2 we knew from the start we’d be under time pressure – getting to the venue at 9am and having to be finished absolutely positive no later than 7pm is really tough for 4 over-the-board games, and in Swiss where you have to wait for the last game to finish to get pairings. Knowing that I doubled down on my breakfast, tripled my meatball ration and ate a day’s worth of food at 7am. Any excuse for my gluttony.
Back to the venue, and Ryan/Sean are paired in the winner’s enclosure, and I play Henrik Petterson, a fellow 3-1 player. I don’t get the USSR steamroller going and the game eventually drains to a USA wargames victory in T9. On the podium, Ryan beats Sean and keeps his streak going, whilst I’m at 3-2, which is still a fine record for me – I’d be happy on day 2 with a 1-3 record to finish 4-4 overall, but 5-3 would be more pleasing.
Game 6 I am paired with David Persson, who I had the pleasure to play in London last year too. It was an excellent game, and David did brilliantly as the USSR, turning the screw on me, and despite me being able to stick him in the Bear Trap for 3 action rounds (the old 1 in 9 chance), he was able to consolidate his position and close out with Wargames in Turn 10. I’m back to 3-3, alas! But we do get to go outside and talk about poker, both of us being poker players in our time, which was fun to talk about another game for a while. Meanwhile at other tables Ryan wins again, with some players breathing down his neck, including Ziemowit who has won all 4 games since starting 0-2 to come back to 4-2.
Game 7 I am overjoyed to get paired with my troublemaking counterpart in team Fruitlinger – Fruitstrike! Our camaraderie stops at a tournament though and I was a horrible mean opponent, giving him all the hassle I could, and thanks to him being incredibly fatigued and me being a merciless, stony-hearted monster, I did enough to crest with VP in Turn 7 as USSR. Fruitstrike also took that as an opportunity to drop G8 and go for a sleep, so one can really really say I pissed in his chips, can’t we. However, I try not to feel too bad as I really, really wanted a winning record at this tournament and I’m up to 4-3. Meanwhile at the top table, Ryan Pindulic is playing Fredrik Adlercreutz, and their game ends in one of the rarest things, a draw in Final Scoring! So Ryan is 6-0-1, Fredrik is 5-1-1, David P is 5-2 (having lost to only Fredik and Sean), and Ziemowit wins again to go 5-2. Spicy!
The final game, G8, in the games that matter most, Ziemowit plays Fredrik and Ryan plays David Persson; Ryan seals the win to finish the tournament undefeated with a 7-0-1 record, and Ziemowit wins his 6th straight to finish 6-2 for 2nd place. Fredik completes the podium with a 5-2-1 record.
Meanwhile, in midtable obscurity, I still have an 8th game to see if I go 5-3 or 4-4 and I’m paired with Shez, who I’ve played a bunch online and over the table with and is a pleasure to match up with. He is USSR and comes out firing, he’s all over Africa and South America, and I’m only surviving by being able to ditch scoring cards with Ask Not. He pitches CIA nice and early so DEFCON lines are lost to me, and in the end my only gambit is Europe Control, so I first try Tear Down This Wall after attemping (but failing – nicely parried) to take Czechoslovakia and Austria too to enhance the roll, but in the end only manage a small realign at +1. In T10 I have to specifically get dealt Chernobyl, Shez mustn’t get Wargames, and I need sufficient ops to flip East Germany (which was at [3][9] at turn start). All those things happen (Shez opts for Aldrich to pull a 4op card, but said after the game he should have used ABM and pumped another 4 ops in East Germany, which is unfortunate) so I sneak an improbable Wargames win, and get a 5-3 record.
I’m happy with that, and whilst I’m not a ratings hound it was nice to see my awful sub-5k rating bounce back to a healthier 5500ish following the tournament. I got wins, and even better a mug which I will treasure and use every time I’m streaming in future! It’s gonna get some shoutouts, and it’s the only mug I’ve used since returning to the UK as well, haha.
We’re already feverishly discussing the 2024 venue – Lisbon is a frontrunner – and I encourage people to come along. Yes, it’s kind of weird to visit lovely cities and spend 2 days in a room not looking at said cities. But, the games are by and large incredibly friendly, high level events, the gang are excellent company. It’s not just about the games – as well as the bar trips Friday and Saturday night many players headed into town to dinner Sunday night, and also met Monday afternoon for a great game of Kubb (a fantastic outdoor game I recommend checking out!), so really fantastic company all round. Whilst a lot of brainpower was expended playing the 8 games, the time we had was a blast. Mega thanks to Anton for organising the venue, the great trophy for Ryan, the fun novelty mug prizes, an extensive google doc guide on transport options, places to stay, venue and city information and so on. It must have been like herding cats at times, but he did great. Tasos and Luis were as always fantastic on the reporting, pairing and games org side, the convention was slick on that front all thanks to their hard work, so many thanks as ever to them. And of course thanks to all the players – not just those I was paired with, but it was a huge convention (22 players attended!) and a great time.
Those who read this and want to share their own stories please do, I’m sure there was more besides what was going on at my table that I totally missed. As noted earlier Stenskott’s Twitch channel has the featured table videos up currently at so you can look through those! And, hope to see you at a future convention ;)

2023.05.31 07:41 no_cigar374 Close But No Cigar - A Life Story

A week and a half ago I graduated from college with honors: a 3.74 GPA. But a year ago, at the start of my final academic year, I told myself I wanted 3.75. A 0.01 difference. Yet it's all the difference between those who graduate cum laude and those who graduate magna cum laude. At the commencemt program, students with magna cum laude get two asteriks next to their name. I wanted those two damn asteriks. Vain, I know. I'm not going to be some rich business magnate or highly successful politician or smart tech guy who understands C# and Java and can work for Lockheed Martin. Nor did I ever let GPA bother me too much for most semesters. A few Bs and A-s were OK, I wouldn't cry over them or lose sleep.
My final academic year I pledged myself I'd work real hard. I was starting with a 3.67. It was doable. I said no to certain parties when I had to focus on my studies, I was disciplined and averted spending too much time on my phone watching Netflix or TV; I managed my time effectively and smartly. I even had enough time to still enjoy myself with friends and acquaintances when it mattered as well as have a parttime labor job. Yet for all my hard work, doing the required readings, writing the essays, submitting work on time, I came really close to achieving my goal: that 3.75. But to do so had costs too. For one of those courses I lied, and I cheated; it was all justified in my mind since it was taught in an insanely hard way, and everyone else in the course cheated too--if you can't beat'em, join'em. It got me a 4.0 for the last semester. But it wasn't enough. I needed one more A cumulatively. So all that discipline, and the compromising of my values to cheat on one course, were for nothing. I neither have results or personal integrity anymore. I don't even care about rounding the 3.74 to 3.75 on my resume, I just want the magna cum laude distinction. I realize it doesn't matter long term or for employment at all. It was a personal goal, realistic, and achievable.
But I didn't.
Almost, doesn't count. Close, but no cigar.
The college's rules are very clear and fair. Everything from 3.5-3.74 is cum laude. To have that magna one must be 3.75, no exceptions. This recent experience in college epitomizes my self-narrative.
Maybe that's a little melodramatic, after all, I'm not working in a dangerous field or doing anything where mistakes cost people's lives like in the military. These pithy phrases though are all too real there, so why wouldn't they be valid in other situations like mine? In the end, success feels binary. You either accomplished your goals or you didn't. And this GPA thing, is not something that can be changed or iterated on. I can't come back from this failure--I graduated--I no longer attend classes there.
Another example. I'm in a weird situation with the US Government. I'm a US citizen, and have been since 2002, I was born in 2001. I grew up completely in the US. I have a valid passport (proof of citizenship). My birth certificate is from another country, however, so it is not proof of citizenship. I applied for something called a Certificate of Citizenship so I could have another form of ID that proves I'm a citizen in case I let my passport lapse. USCIS wants me to take an "Oath of Allegiance" in order to receive the certificate. The certificate is clearly designed for people undergoing a naturalization process. I'm not an immigrant, however, and Congressional legislation basically enabled me to not have to go through the 5 year naturalization process because it would be silly given my situation. My application for the certificate was accepted and I'll get it, but I don't want to have to take this oath. I feel discriminated against. It feels unjust. Regardless of my feelings toward this bureaucratic matter, here I have partial success. But I have a quandary. Do I get over my ego? Or do I ignore my feelings and core beliefs for convenience and expediency. This certificate will help with my future career if I ever need clearances or another form of ID.
And an example that permeates throughout life. Ethnically I'm Asian, but I was raised in a white household with none of the culturally knowledge. Thus, a duality emerges. Someone who knows me will think: well, he's kind of Asian, but acts white. Close, but no cigar. For both categories too. Too Asian to be white. Acts too white to be Asian. I can already imagine the advice on the GPA thing to move on from it. But this is a situation that I cannot escape, that time will not heal since it is a core part of my identity.
I'm always coming short in something. I accept the fact there's always someone better no matter what you do. All those people in honors programs or who are naturally gifted or who aren't but put in the work to get those 3.9-4.0 cumulative GPA's for all 4 years of undergrad; or those people who survive superdays at Goldman, or who land a job on the Hill or at Amazon for software. I just wanted simpler, smaller, achievable goals. It's the little things. For me, that was getting magna cum laude on my diploma.
It ain't happening.
I feel like, in life, I will never outright fail. I'll often never achieve my goal, but I'll come pretty close to it. And I know there are many other people out there with similar situations and feelings. So this one is for you too. But a miss is as good as a mile.

Since Covid hit, all the cool metal bars where people my age into similar things hung out, unfortunately shut down, I have no place to go besides home after work now, where all I do is house work, working out, watching TV, and tinkering in my workshop.
I used to have some cool places I could go to potentially meet people, but it's all gone, the Emo/Goth scene is dead, nobody I can relate to it seems anymore.
So that leaves option B, online friendship attempts, and I have yet to have one work out where I find someone close enough to grab a coffee/bite to eat and chat, have talked, but something is wrong with the way I communicate because I get ghosted almost exactly 3 hours later, how it works out. Facebook used to claim that it was for connecting people, but now it's like only if you already know them in person.
I wrote Facebook a detailed letter and explained it, and how us neurodivergent socially challenged individuals need a feature implemented into social media where we can talk to strangers but not know their personal info right away. It's sort of like a [email protected] site concept except for friendmaking, and only when each party feels comfortable could they go about swapping contact info. I think it should be Photo ID/Passport verified, and also on a strictly first name basis until people get comfortable, as most social media sites aren't meant for making friends, just for social butterflies that already have a bunch.
Any ideas, insights, or different perspectives are very much appreciated, I would like to at least have a small social circle by the time I'm 30, used to have high school and college friends that picked me, I didn't initiate the friendships, and sadly we've all gone separate ways. I am perfectly fine and mentally sane being alone, there's just this hole that I can't fill. I need someone to talk to other than a paid therapist pretending to care. Thanks for any ideas, as a collective effort is much better than trial and error.

2023.05.30 07:05 yasserius Freelancing and Remote Job Guide

WARNING / DISCLAIMER: This guide might be outdated so please do your own research. Feel free to contact us if you find any wrong info in there or have any improvements.

Where to find jobs / Freelancing websites

  1. Upwork: Arguably the largest freelancing site on the internet. There's hundreds of different fields to pick from and upwork takes 20% of your earnings. You can earn ratings out of 5 stars for each job and also you can see the credibility of clients and get payment guarentee by requiring the client to lock the money when you start the job.
  2. Fiverr: Another top site for freelancers. Fiverr's commission is also 20% and ratings are also out of 5 stars. Here you can create "gigs" (job offerings) for your services and clients will knock you after seeing your gigs.
  3. Reddit: This is an underrated site for job but you can still find jobs if you are looking in the right places. Some subreddits include: forhire, Jobs4Bitcoins, beermoney. Beware of scammer though, you should use ecsrow service of some sort, or ask them to pay through fiverr or upwork.
  4. Discord, Linkedin and other social media: This is much harder to find but some business owners are active on discord channels and you might just find the right match and get hired. For example, suppose there is a discord for web development and a business owner is asking to hire in a channel, then you can DM them and see if you can do the job. I know I got my first job from a CS discord where a German guy hired me for his startup as junior developer.

What are common, uncommon and rare skills

Common skills

Uncommon skills

Rare Skills

Getting your first job / a job without experience / as an absolute beginner

Hard to get hired with no reviews: You just opened a fiverr or upwork profile and you have no reviews since you are a beginner. Clients won't trust you, so you have to compensate with the following:
  1. Design a good portfolio: Suppose you want to be a web designer, then you need to show your skills in a portfolio. Make a really good looking web page and upload it online. Share the link in your upwork and fiverr, so that clients can easily see your work and judge it. Example: web design portfolio.
  2. Make an intro video: Do a screen recording or yourself or a small video of youself talking, it should be 1 or 2 minutes long and you should explain your skills and offerings in it, show the portfolio projects and past works you have completed. This video will give an idea to the client whether you are capable or not. Example: video editing intro
  3. Offer low rates but provide excellent service: Since you have no reviews, you should ask for a lower rate than the standard rate. For example, for my first ever client, I asked for only $5 for a job that was supposed to be like $50, only because I needed reviews on my fiverr profile. The client was kind enough to pay me $30 and I delivered a really good website with a lot of hard work. As a result, client left a good 5 star review with a generous comment, that review helped me get new clients. Then after you get 5-10 reviews, you can increase your rates to normal.

How to Succeed on Upwork

How to get paid / payment methods / bring money to Bangladesh

  1. This is the easiest way to get paid directly from client. You first have to login with email and then tell your email to the client. Your first client can send you money by mentioning that email. Then, transferwise will ask you to verify with passport or NID. Once you complete that, you will be able to receive money from any client. Once you receive the money, you can convert it to BDT and send to Bangladeshi bank account of your name using the SWIFT system. But Bkash is also supported.
  2. Payoneer on Fiverr: Fiverr payments can be brought to Bangladeshi bank account using payoneer, you can sign up easily with NID or passport.
  3. Direct bank transfer from Upwork: Upwork allows you to send money directly to Bangladeshi bank account of your name.
