--- Veteran (5 questions) ---

11 What is the maximum possible number of players to be shown in the pop-up contract renewal post match?
A. 11
B. 14
C. 18
D. 22
answer: C
If the opponent disconnected during match in open challenge or matchday, all 18 players in the squad will have their contract uniformly deducted by 1, or more accurately, 90 mins on pitch.
By using 18 new obtained players and repeating the above situation for 10 times, they will reach 0 contract / mins on pitch at the same time, leading to 18 players shown in the pop-up contract renewal post match.

12 What is the maximum possible number shown on the reward collection box?
A. 99
B. 500
C. 999
D. 1000
answer: C

13 Which position has the most weight on curl to its overall rating?
answer: C
This is one of the conclusion from the weight of attributes to OVR formula of each position, solved by some reverse engineering and mathematical means. This postprovides more details.
Despite the lack of further definition - whether "most weight" refers to the highest value among all positions, or the highest percentage among all attributes of that position, DMF is highest among 4 positions in both cases, so the answer remains as C.

14 Here is a green-dot formation.
It has 4 defenders, 4 midfielders and 2 forwards. Which of the following is false?
A. it can be changed to 4-3-1-2
B. it can be changed to 4-4-2
C. it has 3 DMF/CMF
D. it has 2 CF/SS and 1 AMF/CMF
answer: C
The left and right green dots in the midfield are L/RMF instead of DMF. As provided in this post by u/hernandy, if the green dot touches the line extended from the vertical sides of the area, it is recognized as L/RMF. Hence, there is only 1 DMF/CMF in the formation. (If you find the position hard to determine, try using a ruler.)

15 What is the minimum possible time on pitch required to train all tactical familiarity of a randomly selected player to max?
(note 1: a regular full match offers 90 mins time on pitch.)
(note 2: by randomly selected player, it implies that all 14 tactical familiarity of him are unknown and unpredictable, hence any of them can be 0.)
A. 50 mins
B. 90 mins
D. 900 mins
C. 4500 mins
answer: A
As the player to be trained is randomly selected, that any of his tactical familiarity is possible to be 0, a manager of completely opposite offensive/defensive tactics must be selected, otherwise some of the player's tactical familiarity may not be covered.
The player will have all his tactical familiarity +2 after each presence in a match, regardless of the time on pitch. The upper limit and lower limit for this to take effect are 90 mins and 1 min respectively. Note that it will not take effect if the player played less than 1 min, with stoppage and extra time excluded.
There are two possible way to achieve the minimum: sub the player in at 89 min, or play against an online opponent who forfeits (not disconnect) from the match at 1 min for 50 matches straight. At the end, a randomly selected player will have all his 14 tactical familiarity trained to 99, with the total consumption of time on pitch being 50 mins.

--- Hardcore (5 questions) ---

16 What is the squad value of the following squad?
A. 25.7
B. 27.8
C. 28.3
D. 32.9
answer: A
* the post of the squad value formula will be linked soon. It has been solved and I am currently making a post, given that there was no relevant post created by others so far.

17 The possible outcomes of random multiplier when you train a player with other converted players can be represented in a mathematical way: X^Y, where X is a constant and Y varies from a range of integers. What are X and Y respectively?
(note: all possible outcomes should be represented, including the case of 1x mulitplier.)
A. X = 2.4, Y ∈ [0,4]
B. X = 2.5, Y ∈ [1,4]
C. X = 2.4, Y ∈ [0,5]
D. X = 2.5, Y ∈ [1,5]
answer: C
As first discovered in this post by u/TheDIsSilentHilbilly, the observed possible outcomes of random multiplier are approximately 1, 2.4, 5.8, 13.8, 33.2, 79.6.
To be mathematically accurate, they are commonly indexed to 2.4 from 0 to 5:
set of random multiplier = {2.4^ℤ ℤ∈[0,5]} = {2.4^0, 2.4^1, ..., 2.4^5} = {1, 2.4, 5.8, 13.8, 33.2, 79.6} 
Therefore, X = 2.4 and Y belongs to the integer sets of [0,5].

18 Consider a player with 80 OVR at lv.1 and 88 OVR at lv.34.
What is the base exp he offers if he is converted into a trainer at lv.34?
(note: base exp refers to the exp displayed at the trainer list with a "+" sign next to it.)
A. 1488
B. 1536
C. 1584
D. 1680
answer: B
It was one of the data from this post regarding the mathematics of player training. The exact formula of base exp at any level is given by:
E(T,R(1),ΔR) = E(R(1),1) + ΣbR(ΔR) + ΣbT(R(1),T) = 24R(1)-1344 + 8(0.5ΔR²+8.5ΔR+MIN(MOD(ΔR+1,3),1)-1)/3 + 8TR(1)+12T²-444T 
* for the meaning of each variables, please refer to the definition part in that post, they were all clearly stated.
Both the calculated and actual result shows 1536 base exp for a player with the condition given.

19 Here are some information of a player.
What is the required exp to train that player to max level?
A. 68,614
B. 69,451
C. 69,488
D. 70,325
As given in the leveling exp calculator by u/TheDIsSilentHilbilly, the required exp of a 23 years old, 82 OVR (23 cost) player, from lv.20 to lv.36 is 61953.
Therefore, the answer is given by 61953 + 837 = 62790.
All of the above options are wrong. This question has encountered into an error and was rendered null. Therefore, any answer would be treated as correct.

20 What is the theoretical maximum team strength in PES 2020?
(note: by theoretical maximum, it implies that all 18 players in squad have an 99+ OVR that all of them contribute the highest value to the calculation of team strength, regardless of whether such squad is able to be built in actual gameplay.)
A. 5168
B. 5190
C. 5236
D. 5297
answer: C
As given in this post by u/CandidHammer, the team strength can be calculated with the following table:
Note that a player with 99 OVR already contributes the most value for I.S..
In other words, changing a 99 OVR player to 100 OVR, 101 OVR etc. will have no increasing effect to the team strength.
By inputting all 99 OVR for team strength calculation, the result gives 5236, which is the theoretical maximum team strength in PES 2020.

T: submission time, the less it is, the earlier the answer was submitted.
E: edited, if the participant has edited his comment, and there was no other comment without being edited from him, his answer will still be recorded but not considered, with a mark of "E" next to his submission time.
correct%: the correct rate for each question by all participants, note that 99 actually implies 100 i.e. all participants got that question right. It is displayed as 99 as I wish to maintain the column width at 2 instead of 3 for a better view.
answers: a green background indicates a correct answer, while a red background indicates a wrong one. Participants may use this to quickly review which questions they got wrong. If a participant did not answer a certain question, it would be marked as "-".
S: total score, the displaying order is first sorted by total score, and then by submission time.

Congrats on u/DaMunch422 for being the winner of the 1st PES mobile quiz festival!

Don't feel upset if you did not get a satisfying score in this very first quiz!
The reason I created it is wishing it to serve a fun and exciting way for people to actively learn more about the game, as well as appreciating the usually overlooked creators of the informative posts regarding this game, like those I linked to in the solution! So it would be better if you could treat this as a convenient way to acquire more knowledge!
See you guys next time!

Last Minute Notes – Operating Systems

See Last Minute Notes for all subjects all subjects here.
Operating Systems: It is the interface between the user and the computer hardware.
Types of Operating System (OS):
  1. Batch OS – A set of similar jobs are stored in the main memory for execution. A job gets assigned to the CPU, only when the execution of the previous job completes.
  2. Multiprogramming OS – The main memory consists of jobs waiting for CPU time. The OS selects one of the processes and assigns it to the CPU. Whenever the executing process needs to wait for any other operation (like I/O), the OS selects another process from the job queue and assigns it to the CPU. This way, the CPU is never kept idle and the user gets the flavor of getting multiple tasks done at once.
  3. Multitasking OS – Multitasking OS combines the benefits of Multiprogramming OS and CPU scheduling to perform quick switches between jobs. The switch is so quick that the user can interact with each program as it runs
  4. Time Sharing OS – Time-sharing systems require interaction with the user to instruct the OS to perform various tasks. The OS responds with an output. The instructions are usually given through an input device like the keyboard.
  5. Real Time OS – Real-Time OS are usually built for dedicated systems to accomplish a specific set of tasks within deadlines.
Threads:A thread is a lightweight process and forms the basic unit of CPU utilization. A process can perform more than one task at the same time by including multiple threads.
A new thread, or a child process of a given process, can be introduced by using the fork() system call. A process with n fork() system calls generates 2n – 1 child processes.There are two types of threads:
Example: Java thread, POSIX threads.Example : Window Solaris.
USER LEVEL THREADKERNEL LEVEL THREADUser threads are implemented by users.kernel threads are implemented by OS.OS doesn’t recognize user level threads.Kernel threads are recognized by OS.Implementation of User threads is easy.Implementation of Kernel thread is complicated.Context switch time is less.Context switch time is more.Context switch requires no hardware support.Hardware support is needed.If one user level thread performs blocking operation then entire process will be blocked.If one kernel thread performs blocking operation then another thread can continue execution.
Process:A process is a program under execution. The value of program counter (PC) indicates the address of the next instruction of the process being executed. Each process is represented by a Process Control Block (PCB).
Process Scheduling: Below are different times with respect to a process.
  1. Arrival Time – Time at which the process arrives in the ready queue.
  2. Completion Time – Time at which process completes its execution.
  3. Burst Time – Time required by a process for CPU execution.
  4. Turn Around Time – Time Difference between completion time and arrival time.Turn Around Time = Completion Time - Arrival Time
  5. Waiting Time (WT) – Time Difference between turn around time and burst time.Waiting Time = Turn Around Time - Burst Time
Why do we need scheduling?A typical process involves both I/O time and CPU time. In a uniprogramming system like MS-DOS, time spent waiting for I/O is wasted and CPU is free during this time. In multiprogramming systems, one process can use CPU while another is waiting for I/O. This is possible only with process scheduling.
Objectives of Process Scheduling Algorithm:
Different Scheduling Algorithms:
  1. First Come First Serve (FCFS) : Simplest scheduling algorithm that schedules according to arrival times of processes.
  2. Shortest Job First (SJF): Process which have the shortest burst time are scheduled first.
  3. Shortest Remaining Time First (SRTF): It is preemptive mode of SJF algorithm in which jobs are scheduled according to the shortest remaining time.
  4. Round Robin (RR) Scheduling: Each process is assigned a fixed time, in cyclic way.
  5. Priority Based scheduling (Non Preemptive): In this scheduling, processes are scheduled according to their priorities, i.e., highest priority process is schedule first. If priorities of two processes match, then scheduling is according to the arrival time.
  6. Highest Response Ratio Next (HRRN): In this scheduling, processes with highest response ratio is scheduled. This algorithm avoids starvation.Response Ratio = (Waiting Time + Burst time) / Burst time
  7. Multilevel Queue Scheduling (MLQ): According to the priority of process, processes are placed in the different queues. Generally high priority process are placed in the top level queue. Only after completion of processes from top level queue, lower level queued processes are scheduled.
  8. Multi level Feedback Queue (MLFQ) Scheduling: It allows the process to move in between queues. The idea is to separate processes according to the characteristics of their CPU bursts. If a process uses too much CPU time, it is moved to a lower-priority queue.
Some useful facts about Scheduling Algorithms:
  1. FCFS can cause long waiting times, especially when the first job takes too much CPU time.
  2. Both SJF and Shortest Remaining time first algorithms may cause starvation. Consider a situation when a long process is there in the ready queue and shorter processes keep coming.
  3. If time quantum for Round Robin scheduling is very large, then it behaves same as FCFS scheduling.
  4. SJF is optimal in terms of average waiting time for a given set of processes. SJF gives minimum average waiting time, but problems with SJF is how to know/predict the time of next job.
The Critical Section Problem:
  1. Critical Section – The portion of the code in the program where shared variables are accessed and/or updated.
  2. Remainder Section – The remaining portion of the program excluding the Critical Section.
  3. Race around Condition – The final output of the code depends on the order in which the variables are accessed. This is termed as the race around condition.
A solution for the critical section problem must satisfy the following three conditions:
  1. Mutual Exclusion – If a process Pi is executing in its critical section, then no other process is allowed to enter into the critical section.
  2. Progress – If no process is executing in the critical section, then the decision of a process to enter a critical section cannot be made by any other process that is executing in its remainder section. The selection of the process cannot be postponed indefinitely.
  3. Bounded Waiting – There exists a bound on the number of times other processes can enter into the critical section after a process has made request to access the critical section and before the requested is granted.
Synchronization Tools:A Semaphore is an integer variable that is accessed only through two atomic operations, wait () and signal (). An atomic operation is executed in a single CPU time slice without any pre-emption. Semaphores are of two types:
  1. Counting Semaphore – A counting semaphore is an integer variable whose value can range over an unrestricted domain.
  2. Mutex – These can have only two values, 0 or 1. The operations wait () and signal () operate on these in a similar fashion. Mutex is different than a semaphore as it is a locking mechanism while a semaphore is a signalling mechanism. A binary semaphore can be used as a Mutex but a Mutex can never be used as a semaphore.
Deadlock:A situation where a set of processes are blocked because each process is holding a resource and waiting for another resource acquired by some other process. Deadlock can arise if following four conditions hold simultaneously (Necessary Conditions):
  1. Mutual Exclusion – One or more than one resource are non-sharable (Only one process can use at a time).
  2. Hold and Wait – A process is holding at least one resource and waiting for resources.
  3. No Preemption – A resource cannot be taken from a process unless the process releases the resource.
  4. Circular Wait – A set of processes are waiting for each other in circular form.
Methods for handling deadlock: There are three ways to handle deadlock
  1. Deadlock prevention or avoidance: The idea is to not let the system into deadlock state.
  2. Deadlock detection and recovery : Let deadlock occur, then do preemption to handle it once occurred.
  3. Ignore the problem all together – : If deadlock is very rare, then let it happen and reboot the system. This is the approach that both Windows and UNIX take.
Banker’s Algorithm:This algorithm handles multiple instances of the same resource.
Memory Management:These techniques allow the memory to be shared among multiple processes.
Memory Management Techniques:
(a) Single Partition Allocation Schemes –The memory is divided into two parts. One part is kept to be used by the OS and the other is kept to be used by the users.
(b) Multiple Partition Schemes –
  1. Fixed Partition – The memory is divided into fixed size partitions.
  2. Variable Partition – The memory is divided into variable sized partitions.
Variable partition allocation schemes:
  1. First Fit – The arriving process is allotted the first hole of memory in which it fits completely.
  2. Best Fit – The arriving process is allotted the hole of memory in which it fits the best by leaving the minimum memory empty.
  3. Worst Fit – The arriving process is allotted the hole of memory in which it leaves the maximum gap.
  1. Paging –The physical memory is divided into equal sized frames. The main memory is divided into fixed size pages. The size of a physical memory frame is equal to the size of a virtual memory frame.
  2. Segmentation –Segmentation is implemented to give users view of memory. The logical address space is a collection of segments. Segmentation can be implemented with or without the use of paging.
Page Fault:
A page fault is a type of interrupt, raised by the hardware when a running program accesses a memory page that is mapped into the virtual address space, but not loaded in physical memory.
Page Replacement Algorithms:
  1. First In First Out (FIFO) –This is the simplest page replacement algorithm. In this algorithm, operating system keeps track of all pages in the memory in a queue, oldest page is in the front of the queue. When a page needs to be replaced page in the front of the queue is selected for removal.For example, consider page reference string 1, 3, 0, 3, 5, 6 and 3 page slots. Initially, all slots are empty, so when 1, 3, 0 came they are allocated to the empty slots —> 3 Page Faults. When 3 comes, it is already in memory so —> 0 Page Faults. Then 5 comes, it is not available in memory so it replaces the oldest page slot i.e 1. —> 1 Page Fault. Finally, 6 comes, it is also not available in memory so it replaces the oldest page slot i.e 3 —> 1 Page Fault.Belady’s anomaly:Belady’s anomaly proves that it is possible to have more page faults when increasing the number of page frames while using the First in First Out (FIFO) page replacement algorithm. For example, if we consider reference string 3 2 1 0 3 2 4 3 2 1 0 4 and 3 slots, we get 9 total page faults, but if we increase slots to 4, we get 10 page faults.
  2. Optimal Page replacement –In this algorithm, pages are replaced which are not used for the longest duration of time in the future.Let us consider page reference string 7 0 1 2 0 3 0 4 2 3 0 3 2 and 4 page slots. Initially, all slots are empty, so when 7 0 1 2 are allocated to the empty slots —> 4 Page faults. 0 is already there so —> 0 Page fault. When 3 came it will take the place of 7 because it is not used for the longest duration of time in the future.—> 1 Page fault. 0 is already there so —> 0 Page fault. 4 will takes place of 1 —> 1 Page Fault. Now for the further page reference string —> 0 Page fault because they are already available in the memory.Optimal page replacement is perfect, but not possible in practice as an operating system cannot know future requests. The use of Optimal Page replacement is to set up a benchmark so that other replacement algorithms can be analyzed against it.
  3. Least Recently Used (LRU) –In this algorithm, the page will be replaced which is least recently used.Let say the page reference string 7 0 1 2 0 3 0 4 2 3 0 3 2 . Initially, we have 4-page slots empty. Initially, all slots are empty, so when 7 0 1 2 are allocated to the empty slots —> 4 Page faults. 0 is already their so —> 0 Page fault. When 3 came it will take the place of 7 because it is least recently used —> 1 Page fault. 0 is already in memory so —> 0 Page fault. 4 will takes place of 1 —> 1 Page Fault. Now for the further page reference string —> 0 Page fault because they are already available in the memory.
File System: A file is a collection of related information that is recorded on secondary storage. Or file is a collection of logically related entities.File Directories: Collection of files is a file directory. The directory contains information about the files, including attributes, location and ownership. Much of this information, especially that is concerned with storage, is managed by the operating system.
  1. SINGLE-LEVEL DIRECTORY: In this a single directory is maintained for all the users
  2. TWO-LEVEL DIRECTORY: Due to two levels there is a path name for every file to locate that file.
  3. TREE-STRUCTURED DIRECTORY : Directory is maintained in the form of a tree. Searching is efficient and also there is grouping capability.
  4. File Allocation Methods:
  5. Continuous Allocation: A single continuous set of blocks is allocated to a file at the time of file creation.
  6. Linked Allocation(Non-contiguous allocation): Allocation is on an individual block basis. Each block contains a pointer to the next block in the chain.
  7. Indexed Allocation : It addresses many of the problems of contiguous and chained allocation. In this case, the file allocation table contains a separate one-level index for each file
  8. Disk Scheduling:Disk scheduling is done by operating systems to schedule I/O requests arriving for disk. Disk scheduling is also known as I/O scheduling.
  9. Seek Time: Seek time is the time taken to locate the disk arm to a specified track where the data is to be read or write.
  10. Rotational Latency: Rotational Latency is the time taken by the desired sector of disk to rotate into a position so that it can access the read/write heads.
  11. Transfer Time: Transfer time is the time to transfer the data. It depends on the rotating speed of the disk and number of bytes to be transferred.
  12. Disk Access Time: Seek Time + Rotational Latency + Transfer Time
  13. Disk Response Time: Response Time is the average of time spent by a request waiting to perform its I/O operation. Average Response time is the response time of the all requests.
  14. Disk Scheduling Algorithms:
  15. FCFS: FCFS is the simplest of all the Disk Scheduling Algorithms. In FCFS, the requests are addressed in the order they arrive in the disk queue.
  16. SSTF: In SSTF (Shortest Seek Time First), requests having shortest seek time are executed first. So, the seek time of every request is calculated in advance in a queue and then they are scheduled according to their calculated seek time. As a result, the request near the disk arm will get executed first.
  17. SCAN: In SCAN algorithm the disk arm moves into a particular direction and services the requests coming in its path and after reaching the end of the disk, it reverses its direction and again services the request arriving in its path. So, this algorithm works like an elevator and hence also known as elevator algorithm.
  18. CSCAN: In SCAN algorithm, the disk arm again scans the path that has been scanned, after reversing its direction. So, it may be possible that too many requests are waiting at the other end or there may be zero or few requests pending at the scanned area.
  19. LOOK: It is similar to the SCAN disk scheduling algorithm except for the difference that the disk arm in spite of going to the end of the disk goes only to the last request to be serviced in front of the head and then reverses its direction from there only. Thus it prevents the extra delay which occurred due to unnecessary traversal to the end of the disk.
  20. CLOOK: As LOOK is similar to SCAN algorithm, in a similar way, CLOOK is similar to CSCAN disk scheduling algorithm. In CLOOK, the disk arm in spite of going to the end goes only to the last request to be serviced in front of the head and then from there goes to the other end’s last request. Thus, it also prevents the extra delay which occurred due to unnecessary traversal to the end of the disk.

2020.07.17 08:26 DeathbyToast Introducing PvPIVs.com! (formerly ShortcutIV.com)

Hello fellow Trainers!
It has been a little over a year since the launch of ShortcutIV.com, and as the iOS Shortcut that spawned the initial site has since been deprecated (and replaced with the online version with enhanced functionality), I figured it was time to drop the ShortcutIV moniker. After some discussion on our Discord I decided to simplify / re-brand with what we are all searching for: the best PvP IVs (.com)!
This is the same layout and functionality as the original ShortcutIV site, just on a new domain and with some upgrades under the hood (such as HTTP connections no longer being accepted, instead auto-redirecting to HTTPS). I figured this would also be a good time to formally announce many of the tweaks and upgrades I've put into the site over the past year, and explain exactly how they work (and the value I get out of using them myself). I've also added a brand new FAQ section on the About page, and if there are other common questions you think should be added / explained please let me know! Without further ado, here's all the fun things I've added to the site (this list is also available as our new GitHub's Readme!):
As always, if you have any questions, comments, or ideas for how to improve ShortcutIV PvPIVs.com please let me know either here on Reddit or in our Discord. Happy Hunting!

2020.06.06 07:02 kasumitendo EMDR & DPDR - It's working very well... almost miraculously well.

I started typing this as a message to someone that reached out and decided to post it here. I'll give some background and then jump back into the message to the other person.
The background is around age 23, I started smoking weed, taking mushrooms, and eventually LSD, was left with DPDR. But the big picture is I have CPTSD from a horrible upbringing. The details don't matter, but the pattern is CPTSD set the stage and psychedelics let the DPDR loose.
The first time it happened Youtube didn't even exist yet and nobody knew anything about it, so I was freaking out which made recovery take longer. The 2nd time I had all these forums and info and the psych community finally was talking about it.
After about 3 years of DPDR dissipating slowly from the first time, it was down to maybe 20% intensity and years went by. I started a business, lived my life, isolated and felt broken. A few years ago... suddenly "pop" it came back in a moment's flash. Literally "pop" I'm dissociated again. I beat it much faster this time, and told myself I'd get help because I'll never let this happen again. I waited 3 years until my anxiety got crazy again and I still had DPDR.
Quick tips for anyone really suffering: I found that taking magnesium supplements could cut the DPDR symptoms in half within an hour of taking them. Daily zinc supplementation cut my depressive symptoms out entirely. And Vitamin D daily turned my outlook way more positive. Those 3 things have been amazing and I recommend everyone try them. It'll cost you maybe $15 to try it and won't harm you at all. Just don't take more than recommended.
On to the message I was typing and pasted here:
Let me tell you... forget all that "passive" stuff like pretending it's not there. It does pass after a long time, but it comes back in my experience. Take a proactive stance and tackle this problem head-on so you don't lose years of your life to it like the rest of us have.
At the start of March my anxiety went nuts again. I finally sent a ton of emails and made phone calls to find an EMDR therapist. I told all of them that I'd only pay about half of the going rate, and one accepted me.
If you aren't aware of EMDR, look that up. It's like the newest breakthrough on some weird scifi tech level. It's about a decade old and is supposedly working so good, like miraculously good that the rest of the industry is trying to keep it down.
My DPDR "started" with psychedelic usage, but really I've had a horrible childhood all the up to the present (about to be 36 years old). Every type of abuse you can think of, I've had done for years on end consistently.
My therapist basically said, after I did a ton of questionairres and quizes to get diagnosed, that I have PTSD from a bad trip, but people who get PTSD are vulnerable due to CPTSD (complex PTSD), meaning they basically had a series of mini-traumas their whole life. Like 5 soldiers can be around an explosion and only 1 ends up with PTSD, and that's why. And DPDR is a type of dissociation that arises with PTSD. I'm sure there's other scenarios but this is my situation, it seems.
So we do about 5 weeks of me learning "tools" like breathing methods, imagining and constructing a peaceful place in my mind, same with a container I can put thoughts in so I can deal with them later at the right time, etc. In that time, I had also given her a 5 page document of my "trauma timeline" I had typed up years before. We discuss a lot of that, but it's not talk therapy, it's straight explanations.
Even with just explaining, I noticed some symptoms unrelated to DPDR going away, like social anxiety.
From my "trauma timeline," now that I'm stable and less anxious, we start the actual EMDR processing. Week 1, within 15 minutes of processing I end up balling for the first time in ~15 years. My brain goes from this one memory through a few and straight to a revelation that led me to cry. It was next level.
I go to therapy on Tuesday afternoon and that day I'm an exhausted wreck and anxious. Wednesday I'm halfway a wreck. By Thursday I feel amazing. This has been the pattern even when we were only talking and not processing yet. I was also seeing incremental benefits from just that.
After the first week of actual processing with bilateral stimulation, I noticed that my Depersonalization was waaay down. I was still anxious and derealized, but the depersonalization was better by 50% I'd say. From one session. I felt concrete and integrated into reality, even if it still looked funny.
The next week, which was just this past Tuesday, we start processing on the same memory. I can't get into it. It's not giving me an emotional reaction or leading to more memories. But I'm getting angry and aggravated that this travesty was ever done to me, a child at the time. Before I know it, my pulse is rising, and I start dissociating and almost having a panic attack. We stop and bring me down and times up for the session.
That night sucked. I barely slept, kept "startling" awake every 30 mins I'd guess. Was dead tired Wednesday but the weird thing was I felt amazing. By Thursday it was a whole new world. The depersonalization is down even more, maybe to 25% of my worst intensity. And now the derealization is down to maybe 50%. The external world looks as "good" as it does when I've had magnesium, without me having taken any.
That's where I'm at. I think it's week 7 or 8 of total EMDR therapy, going through the phases, but only 2 weeks of processing. And it's already miraculous. And we've only touched on my earliest negative memory. Nothing about the bad trip, just a stupid memory of my dad being abusive.
There is hope. You need faith, courage, endurance, and to take action. Yes, supplements have helped. Yes, "ignoring it" or just letting years pass helped DPDR, but I still was a wreck. And being a wreck is what's causing the DPDR. Going straight in for the kill and solving ALL of my anxiety and depressive problems in curing DPDR so fast that it's hard to believe. What's more is that I'm semi-taking it for granted because I'm so sick of it that I don't want to hold on to it at all.
The DPDR, the anxiety, the social anxiety, the panic attacks... it's held back my social life, my relationships, my business... Where would I be if I had started getting this taken care of when I was 23 instead of 35? Who knows. Don't be like me and wait that long. Find a certified EMDR therapist that will take you in at low rates, and if you have to find someone that will help you pay for it. I don't have insurance, I'm paying in cash at $60 per session, once per week after telling them that's all I could afford. It's worth every fricking penny. If I could afford it, I'd pay $1000 a week. It's that valuable.
See if your story matches mine. If you have DPDR from weed or anything else like that, ask yourself if you had a bad childhood. For me, we're talking an alcoholic, crack smoking dad that punched holes in the wall, almost drowned us, run ins with the cops, siblings fighting, no adults willing to help even though we asked, sexual abuse, emotional abuse, verbal abuse, intimidation, on and on. School friends committing suicide, bullying, all of it. If you had a bad upbringing but think "it was just the weed or acid" then it's probably not just the weed. I'm finding that tackling the childhood stuff is curing the DPDR insanely fast.
Please don't be passive. Find professional help. Also, since people will ask, I went and got a prescription for Fluoxetine (prozac) and did not take it. It's in the cabinet, and knowing it's there has been weirdly calming, like I have a safety net if needed. But I haven't needed it. The therapy is what I needed this whole time. Almost 15 years of waiting for no good reason. Take action!
Be strong. You're not alone. I love you and understand your situation. It sucks, but it'll get better, and it'll get better faster if you make a move on it. You'll pop out the other side with a new lease on life, one that people who never suffered like this won't have. Make the best of it like I plan to do!
P.S. I hate that this sub-reddit has turned into another "let's post a thousand memes while drowning out the actual helpful information" sub-reddit. It's a real travesty.

2020.05.28 17:18 puno_me_papi I'm building a website that makes finding and buying snowboards easier. Looking for feedback. introducing nosebuttr.com

(Edit: i had to restart the database because the site was not prepared for the traffic it gas been recieving if you are trying to use the site and it doesn't work please try again in 30 mins. Im new to web development and doing my best to fix the issue)
Edit2: alrigt everything should be fixed for now sorry about that!
Edit 3:im having some performance issues with the site, i was not prepared for this much traffic so sorry again. The boards SHOULD load when you complete the quiz but it might take a litte. If you complete the quiz and the boards wont load at all please pm me to let me know.
Hi everyone,
I have been using my spare time to build an app that helps snowboarders shop for new boards. The idea is relatively simple, you fill out a short quiz about your snowboarding preferences and the website recommends a list of boards that you might like. It also tracks board prices on a few of the major retailer's websites(currently evo, backcountry, snowboards.com, and theHouse) so you can find the board at the best price. The site currently only has Rome, Burton, and Nitro boards listed but I will be adding more throughout the summer.
The website link is https://www.nosebuttr.com/. I'd love to hear what you think about it so I can improve it.
A few questions I have for those who test out the site:
What snowboard brands should I prioritize?
Are there any quiz questions you think it should be asking that I missed?
Is the quiz too long?
What features could I add that would make you want to tell everyone about it?
Would you use this website to help you pick your next snowboard(if there were more brands listed)?
Think the site sucks and it's a stupid idea? Tell me why.

some features I have in the works:
- more snowboard brands
- snowboard bindings match quiz
-price tracking notifications (get notified when a the price of a board you want to buy decreases)
-board search feature
Edit: You have been heard my non american friends!!! Adding support for metric(the superior measurements system) is now at the top of my list of features to add

2020.05.22 21:46 strawgrlberry The new TEFL will be the death of me!

I decided to do it because, why not. I figure at some point it will be required and I have the extra time. Here are a few thoughts after completing the first section. You must spend 1 minute on each slide before it gives you the option to click to the next slide. Due to high traffic,most times, it does not load on the first click. It took a number of tries to go through. I believe, there are four parts to section 1 with many subtopics under each part. You have 50 minutes to complete the first attempt on the quiz. There are 20 questions, multiple choice, true false, matching and comprehension questions from reading three case studies. If you miss more than 4 you can retake the test in 30 mins. Thankfully I passed the first time with 90%. I am planning to wait to finish the other sections due to the amount of time. I usually take the cert quizzes by not clicking the X. This was a whole different ballgame! Just wanted to give a heads up if anyone was considering it.

2020.04.27 08:53 losingitness A week in Dublin, Ireland on a €70,000 Income

Hi all,
This is my first MD ever - hope it all makes sense but apologies if not as numbers have never been my strong point. I've been working from home with my fiance (B) since the 12th March and we were due to get married in June, we decided last week to move our wedding to 2021 and hopefully life will be a bit more normal by then. Due to the wedding we had been saving both money and holidays for our honeymoon planned for later in the year, we still have our honeymoon booked and guess we won't know if we can go ahead until closer to the time.
In Ireland we've been asked to stay home unless going for necessary supplies and we can exercise to a 2km limit around our home. We're not living within a 2km radius to either of our families and I'm really missing seeing them although I love that they've adapted to video calls. We live in a basement flat and our landlady lives upstairs, she's in her 80s so we're in contact with her more than usual lately as we've been shopping for her.
B & I haven’t combined finances fully yet, more out of laziness than anything else. The plan is to open a joint account and for every payday for us both to transfer in half our paycheques. I've been trying to get an appointment to open up a joint account (has to be done in person) and can't see this being soon due to the backlog. It's on our radar though.
Basic Info:
Age: 32
Occupation: Account Manager - Advertising
Section 1: Assets & Debt
Retirement Balance: €10,000 fund spread over a fund I opened up years ago and have kept up. Since starting my job they contribute up to if I match it 7% **CHECK) but I’ve upped this due to the recos.
Savings Accounts: €12,000 in our wedding fund. €4,000 in personal savings. €1,200 in a credit union account as collateral for a loan (should I need it. I have a Revolut vault that rounds up spare change and I'm using this for treats while we're in this situation, when this started I was ordering a lot of things to cheer me up and when it became more clear that this is a situation that may last for months rather than weeks I decided to put some rules in place. At the start of this week I had about €50 in this.
Debt: None, college is technically free in Ireland and I'm really lucky that my parents were able to help me with my expenses during college and I also had a part-time job while I studied. They have also offered to contribute to our wedding even though I stressed that there is no need.
Section 2: Income
My salary: €70,000, plus quarterly bonus of 30% when we hit target (can vary, esp now with the current situation). The last two bonus payments I've recieved I put into our wedding and our honeymoon fund. Going forward I'll be putting these into savings towards a deposit.
My paycheck post deductions - €3,343
Section 3: Monthly Expenses
Rent: €1,900 a month, I pay €1,100 as I get paid more. This is high but we really love our apartment. It's quite new, we have two bathrooms and lots of space. We even have an area outdoors so feel like it's worth paying this much. I've been very grateful for it over the last few weeks.
Electric & Gas: aprox €160-200 a month.
Health Insurance Work pays for.
Cell Phones: Work pays for.
Netflix: €12 (B pays for Amazon Prime)
Now TV: €27.50
Cinema Pass: €20 (currently paused but would allow unlimited movies in a month, we were going to the cinema on average 4 times a month so it was worth it).
Patreon: €8
Apple Music: €9.99
Internet - €63
Pension - €100
Monday, 20th April:
6.30 am. I wake up, make coffee and watch an episode of Shahs of Sunset while writing in my diary. I started this habit about two weeks into the quarantine and really didn’t think I’d last this long.
8.00am I set up my workspace and log onto work early. I have leftover baked oats at my desk and another coffee. I check my bank balance and see that I’ve been reimbursed for the internet while working from home which is an amazing perk.
9.00am B logs onto his work, we have a dedicated desk space in our apartment which is big enough for both of us to work at. The only time we have a bit of an issue is if we have calls at the same time so one of us volunteers to go into the living room. It’s working well so far.
10.00am I work on a client presentation for Wednesday, clear my inbox and have a banana as snack. I am feeling a little bit off with work right now, the job is more salesy than I thought and with the current events I’m not sure how I feel about it anymore.It feels a bit gross to talk about revenue targets with everything going on. I am keeping my head down and working away but also keeping any eye open in case there’s any internal opportunities to a different role.
11.30am Mail announces that a colleague had a baby, lovely news and I donate €10 towards a gift.
12.50pm Still just beavering away. I’ve got bumper to bumper internal calls over lunch which is lame but manage to get a 10 min break to eat leftover pizza.
14:00pm I’m struggling. I log onto a training call to get some inspiration
4.30pm As I logged on early, I log off and shower. I know logically that it’s most likely hay fever and tiredness but part of me wonders if I’m getting sick. Hoping the shower will help.
5.30pm: Online shop arrives early! The delivery man has left it at our door and I wave to him to let him know we got it. Got meat (for himself), snacks, tinned goods, yogurt, coffee and laundry stuff. We are missing a couple of things like bleach, dishwasher tabs and black beans but it’s not critical (just yet). €85.24
6.00pm I cook some brown rice and heat up leftover chickpea stew and have an early dinner
6.30pm I get a call from nieces who are getting ready for bed and in the space of 5 mins go from chilled to hyper…..sorry sis!
8.00pm I make pizza for fiance, I made the dough yesterday when we had a little pizza party and this is the leftovers from this. We usually do have different meals because he’s a fussy eater but I actually don’t mind. I put on a wash now that we have more laundry supplies and I don’t need to ration them out.
9.00pm We watch a movie chosen by fiance to make up for SATC a few weeks ago. I take a paracetmeol as I’m not feeling great.
11.00pm Hang out the washing and head to bed.
Total: €95.24
Tuesday, 21st April:
7.00am Woken up by our timed light, have some coffee and do some journaling.
8.00am Still not feeling great and I get dressed in a comfy Jeans and jumper, log on early and eat leftover baked oats at my desk. I have a big client presentation to work on so switch off emails and put my phone away to full focus. Work the morning through stopping for snacks (mainly Pringles).
1.00pm Lunch is two slices of toast with some avocado, hummus and an apple (not together). I resist the urge to clean the kitchen as fiance and I have a deal that he cleans and I cook. I sit in sun outside, and take an internal call outside.
4.00pm Heat up coconut chickpea stew and rice and try to re-focus. Make up some sparkling water from my Sodastream which I got for free and only really got working now, I love it. The early start combined with not feeling well has me struggling and I log off slightly early.
7.30pm I go onto a Podcast Quiz that’s really fun. While on it I make japanese curry which tastes a little bland and I realise I forgot onions. D’Oh.
9.00pm Watch Space Jam and eat some chocolate, head to bed after the film and hope I feel better in the morning.
Total: €0
Wednesday, 22nd April:
7.00am I’m woken up again by light, coffee and journal and trash TV. I’m feeling much better but still a bit delicate. I think this is combination of hay fever and tiredness so I tell B I don't think I have the virus, he reminds me this is the third (3rd) time I've done this.
8.00am I get dressed in the same jeans but a nice top as I have a client presentation this morning. We get our electricity bill which is not as high as I thought it would be seeing as we both work from home now. €80 for my share. I am glad but also I’ve been nagging my fiance about not leaving lights on unnecessarily the last month and feel this doesn't help my case. I move €200 into my savings account as I don't expect to have many more expenses till payday on Friday.
9.30am Forgot about the milkman payment , €7.68 comes out of my account for last week.
11.am I have to present virtually, sweating throughout but think it goes well. I made myself a hacky version of a standing desk as I feel like mentally it’s easier to get into the zone standing for a presentation. This is actually a bit of a practice for myself for tomorrow.
4.30pm It’s been a really busy day, trying to keep up with lots of different projects and realise I forgot to send someone something and beat myself up about it for the rest of the day. I need to work on being better at this, and have attended some courses about doing it. If anyone else has tips please share.
7.00pm I end up working late to finish up the client presentation prep for tomorrow. I have a shower and plait my hair so i get some nice beachy waves for tomorrow.
8.00pm I make pasta bake from leftover pizza sauce, chicken, an old pepper and breadcrumbs. Actually surprisingly really tasty. We watch Terrace house while we eat.
9.30pm I clean up with an episode of Too Hot to Handle. This is awful stuff but perfect for background noise.
10.00pm My sister messages me to say one of favourite authors has a new book that can be preordered on kindle for 99p and it’ll apparently help the writer too. That comes to €1.13. I check my mail and see my order from the pharmacy has been dispatched - shampoo, conditioner and a gas canister for my beloved Sodastream, the money for this was taken from my card last week so no additional charge.
Bed by 11.
Total: €88.81
Thursday, 23rd April:
6.30am I wake up from a dream that I’ve been asked to move out and it’s one of those dreams where I need to say to myself “it’s only a dream, it’s only a dream” a couple of times. The usual coffee and reality TV start.
8.00am I make breakfast. I end up burning my bagel but eat it anyway (we’re not wasting anything right now) with egg, avocado and hummus.
9.00am I log on and get straight into it, my first call is with my scariest client call but it goes well and I feel on a high for the rest of the day.
11.00am A team meeting and a last min catch-up for the client session this afternoon.
12.00pm I have a quick lunch of chickpea stew and rice and eat it in the sun. Then I put on some make-up and nice earrings for the video presentation after lunch. It's mad how just putting on lipstick has me feeling like a million bucks.
2.15pm Time for the big client presentation and it’s safe to say my colleague and I nail it. I have a bit more work to do today and I’m starving so I have some more rice but with curry this time.
4.30pm I get a call from a pub to arrange to collect growlers from a beer delivery I got two weeks ago. This should mean I get 4 euro back and I drop in a couple of bags of crisps in with the bottles too to say thanks for collecting.
5.30pm Work for a few more hours then go for a walk with my fiance. We’ve not really been doing this since lockdown came through as I feel like only one of us should be out at a time and I don’t want to stress out other people while we’re out.
6.30pm Home and leftover pasta bake for dinner, watch the latest episode of Westworld. I love this show.
8.00pm I update my spreadsheet that keeps track of our food supplies and what I can make from these. I started doing this when this all kicked off as I’ve not always been great with using what I already have. I generally would buy more things on my way home from work and this isn’t an option anymore. I also do some work on this diary.
9.00pm I read some of my book, actually lovely to read a physical book. Exhausted after the day and I’m asleep at 10.30
Total: €0
Friday, 24th April:
6.30am It’s payday! And also milk delivery day, I bring in our milk order which includes milk for our landlady. We’ll leave it up for her at lunchtime. I have a quick shower without washing my hair as I'm trying to wash it less right now. I put on Nuud natural deodorant which I highly recommend! I was using it before the working from home thing and have to say it's so good. If you're feeling nervous about trying it I think now is a great time.
7.00am Time for some coffee and accounting, I transfer money into our wedding savings account (even though we’ve postponed till next year I’m going to keep adding in my planned savings until next month) - €500. I update my budget spreadsheet, when I do this I usually add in all my planned expenses like dinners out, birthday presents etc. This month and last month I don’t really have anything but I put in for my niece’s birthday to send them both something in May.
8.30am Log onto work with another coffee and a flapjack for breakfast.
10.00am I have my last client call of the week and log all my calls in our internal system. While we’re not officially judged on this, the management team keep an eye on this and feel like especially right now when we’re working from home, this will be looked at.
11.00am I have a feedback session with my manager, I’ve been into this new role for 8 months now and as I mentioned earlier this week it has had its ups and downs. I get some good feedback - positive notes that are nice to hear and constructive notes that I agree with. A really good session overall.
12.30pm Slightly early lunch, I make a coffee with some frothy milk and a bagel with avocado and scrambled egg. I do some online shopping on my lunch break, I order a herbs planter that won’t be delivered till June but looks fun and B is excited to have a project, €20 my share. I saw during the week that one of my favourite Mexican places is delivering cook at home kits but I’m outside their delivery radius. This makes me sad so I decide to order some corn tortillas, salsas, chillis so I can have a taco night at home. They probably won’t be here for another week but hey something to look forward to. €23 Lastly, I decide to order some meat (pork shoulder for tacos, burgers, chicken thighs and rashers) to be delivered next week €38.99
4.00pm I’ve had internal calls all afternoon and my head feels drained after the busy week, I send some follow-ups from the client meeting yesterday and clear my inbox, moving things onto my to-do list for next week.
5.30pm And log off! I put my work laptop away to signify that this is indeed the weekend and to reduce the temptation to work more at the weekend. B is finishing something off so I leave him to it.
6.00pm My friend lives 5 minutes away but they went to her in-laws for a visit about 6 weeks ago and ended up being stuck there. Thoughts and prayers. She asked me to pop round to her house just to make sure all is okay and that it doesn’t look abandoned. It’s a lovely evening and I’m glad for a job outside the house.
6.15pm All is good at the house, noticed that there’s a huge line at the local off-licence but there’s no line at the small supermarket so I pop in to get a few essentials: fancy chopped tomatoes for a pasta sauce, a reduced sausage roll and some chocolate fingers. I am starving this week for some reason, might be stress or I suspect my period is coming early. €6.98
6.30pm B has finished work and is playing Animal Crossing, I feel very betrayed as it was as if we were the only two people who weren’t playing it. He then starts to play Ring Fit, exercise game for the switch. It’s actually surpisingly good! I did it a good bit last week but definitely have been lazier this week due to not feeling great.
7.30pm After dinner of pork chops, rice and vegetables we log onto Xbox live and play games online with one of our mutual friends. We call him and chat for a few hours while having some beers that my sister sent to me for my birthday earlier this month.
10.30pm I’m feeling tired so we log off the call, I watch an episode of Broad City and B plays Animal Crossing.
Total: €588.97
Saturday, 25th April:
7am, I am wide awake even though it’s the weekend. I have a coffee and watch the newest episode of RHOBH while working on this diary.
7,30am I order an ice tray for my fiancé because I put his in the dishwasher and ruined it. He wasn’t even annoyed but I felt bad for it: €25. As I’m almost out of beer I order more for myself and I take the money for this from my savings vault. It comes to €48 which includes delivery - probably won’t be here till next week.
9.00am As B had a stressful day yesterday and I’m feeling great now that big client presentation is over I decide to clean up the kitchen. I make myself avocado toast with black pudding and another coffee, I eat this sitting outside. I call my mum who’s been finding this tough as she can’t see her granddaughters but asks to call me later as she’s off for her morning walk.
10.00am B is up and is calling our landlady to see if she needs anything, she says she’ll leave a shopping list and bag out for us. Vulnerable shopping time is on till after lunchtime so we’ll do it then.
11.30am I’ve decided that Saturday is my kitchen project day and today it’s homemade ravioli. I put on Laura Marling’s new album (I love it) while I make a filling with mushrooms and a small potato - sounds weird but I found it in a vegan cookbook years ago and it makes for a creamy consistency without cream. Plus I need to use up my mushrooms and potatoes. I also make some stewed rhubarb with orange to have in porridge for breakfast over the next few days.
12.30pm I make my pasta dough, I’ve only done this once before and I don’t have a machine to roll but let’s see how this turns out. B volunteers to go to the supermarket by himself to pick up the landlady’s list, I ask him to pick up limes, gran padano cheese, oil spray and courgettes. I give him my card €5.36.
1.00pm I start rolling out my dough, it’s hard to get it as thin as I would like. I cut out circles, add in my filling and seal. I boil these for a few minutes and serve with grated gran padano. As I feared they are a little bit too thick but I’m happy to have spent a few hours on these. I’m not super happy about the mess I have to clean up.
2.30pm Zoom call with some girlfriends, it’s lovely to catch-up even though we have no major news right now. I ask for advice to use up a green pepper (I find them so bitter) and if you have any advice please let me know.
4.00pm Carb coma. I read more of my book (Mad Girl’s Lovesong if anyone is interested) and sit in the sunshine.
6.00pm Start cooking dinner, some leftover pork chops and stuffing for B and beans on toast for me. I have a small ball of leftover pizza dough from last weekend so I bake it in the oven like a little roll. Turns out okay!
7.00pm We watch this week’s drag race and text our mutual friend C throughout, I love Crystal Method so much! I enjoy the guest judges but definitely prefer Rachel Bloom and wish she could be a permanent judge. I cry at the lip sync. Yep, period must be on the way. We follow up with Untucked
8.30pm B has a lads Zoom call, C and I decide to watch Hustlers. I make myself a whiskey sour first that is all whiskey not so much sour and I know this will knock me out for the night. Watch Hustlers while texting C. C started off as B’s friend but slowly we’ve become best friends, I have slight guilt sometimes that I’ve stolen her but B has assured me that he’s happy we get on so well. We drunkenly decide we’re going on a trip to London once this is over. Hustlers is great, I saw it in the cinema when it came out and it’s still great.
11.30pm The whiskey has me crawling to bed, B is still on his Zoom call. I realise my mum never called me back! How dare she.
3.00am I’m woken up by B on his call, I get out of bed and give him a grumpy look. He immediately quietens.
3.30am B comes to bed very apologetic and full of chat and it’s adorable.
Total: €78.36
Sunday, 26th April
8.00am I wake up and B is sleeping soundly. Coffee and class RHONY while I work on this diary.
10.00am I make scrambled eggs on toast with more coffee. Maybe I also have a cookie after.
I blog for a while. I used to blog a lot when I was unemployed and needed an outlet but once I started working again I got out of the habit. I started doing it since the start of this year and have been really enjoying it. I mainly blog about cooking and testing recipes.
11.00am Debate going for a run but decide cuddles with B will be better. Despite us spending most of our time together I worry about us spending quality time right now. Usually we do that by going out on a date but we need to put a bit more effort in now.
12.30pm I have a shower and go the full hog, washing my hair and shaving. If you can’t tell, standards are low right now lol. Moisturise and sit in my robe.
1.30pm I make a kind of paella for lunch, it's not very authentic but it’s tasty.
2.45pm I settle with my laptop in the sitting room with tea and some chocolate fingers and B logs into his laptop in our kitchen. We’ve been playing Dungeons & Dragons with a group of friends every Sunday for the last month. It’s our first time playing this online with our friends rather than in person but I’ve really been enjoying this as a distraction and social outlet.
6.30pm The game has been going on for a while but it’s coming to an end and we’ve been quite successful. I ask B if he wants to get pizza. I have some guilt about ordering a takeaway but honestly feel like a break from cooking would be fantastic. I order a pepperoni pizza and chips to collect €10
7.00pm I walk the five minutes to the pizza place to collect our order, my mum calls me on the way back and I’m caught rotten getting a takeaway. Tell her I’ll call her back after we eat. We watch the latest episode of The Mandalorian while we eat.
7.45pm Call my mum back, also talk to my Dad who shows me the cat asleep on his lap. Adorable.
8.15pm Talk to B about once restrictions ease off if it would be okay for me to head to my parents for a few weeks, we talk it out a bit. While I would love to see them and spend lots of time with them, I don’t feel super comfortable about travelling to see them in case I inadvertently pass the virus onto them. Feel a bit sorry for myself. Watch RHONY to distract myself while B cleans up.
9.30pm I’m very tired after not having a great night’s sleep last night, head to bed with my book.
Total: €10
Weekly Recap:
Gifts: €35

Food & Drink: €225.25
Utilities: €80

Weekly Total: €361.38
Savings (not sure where to put this?!): €700
Reflections: It is not a surprise to me that most of my spend was towards food, I think this was a big week for that as we got our online delivery and I also put in for a meat order but in reality I am getting a lot of comfort from cooking at this time. It was a really busy week at work and I felt really run down and stressed. I realise that I pretty much did no exercise this week but putting that down to the fact that I was working really long days and not feeling well. This week I'm going to make a better effort to get more exercise as it'll probably help with my stressy feelings.

2020.04.25 14:50 jaysap84 Me 36M and Wife 38F

Hey folks,
So spent a lot of time googling and couldn’t get the answers so turning to you all for a balanced opinion on if I am the asshole and thoughts on how to proceed.
Context: Live in Barcelona (so small flat and no terrace) - have an 8 week old baby so lockdown since March but we were effectively on lockdown since before the birth so about mid February. Character wise we are both very independent and normally have a great relationship.
Since last month we started a zoom quiz on Friday to connect with friends during lockdown. About 25 mins before it was due to start I mentioned a friend 5 mins away was playing some music and asked me around. Obviously short notice - but I wanted to go... get out of the house after crazy work week - get an hour or so to myself. My wife was pissed - she mentioned initially to stay on the quiz for 30 minutes and then leave. This very quickly changed and she started crying and mentioned this was her only social event of the week and I had ruined it because she now wouldn’t be able to join 100% as we have the baby. I said I was going and that was that. We have had the quizz for the last month - she also could setup any other social event but hadn’t done so and relied on me for this (never had this situation). She mentioned I could play music another time which is true but I wanted to go and felt I should be able to do as I choose. As I saw it her night could have remained largely unchanged but stepping away for 10 mins every so often. Her feeling is that I was selfish and ruined her night as she had been with baby all week (as I started back this week - super stressful job at the moment).
She didn’t join the quiz as was upset and I said to join and turn it around otherwise she will miss out on what she wanted. So I was on the quiz and the 30 minutes past as I said I was going. This is where it went to shit... she said she would leave and went into our building hallway and was squealing at the top of her lungs - I was yelling back to get her inside and yelling match mainly around me being selfish and me saying she ruined this for herself.
I left and then saw about 5 police cars drive past to my house so I ran back home and someone had called the police - I was almost arrested as they thought I was physical (100% not!!!) police left shortly after.
I said I couldn’t be near her as we were both being irrational and making the baby upset. I left to my friends and returned later that eve.
I know I caused the problem to start as I changed the plans but she has a part in the response... She doesn’t see it that way and recorded the argument for some reason and wants to play it back so she can show I am 100% the problem...
I also don’t know why I need to be there if she just wants to chat with friends and could arrange anything herself... we don’t normally have to rely on each other for these things so just get convenient to use this...
Bleurgh horrible situation and I just want to align on where we both went wrong and how to move forward.
Thanks!!! J
Edit: used a lot of the comments here to have a discussion... all is good now. Seems we were mid aligned on a few things and understand each other better. Without reading the feedback I probably would have held on my opinion but considering it enabled a much calmer discussion which got us to the core of the issues we had (the argument was just a proxy for a few things). So sending my thanks!

2020.04.20 05:36 kitzer2404 MD: A 19yo healthcare worker on $51kp.a in Western Australia going through a break-up during Iso

I’m a 19yo healthcare worker making 51kp.a who’s just left an abusive relationship and is in isolation. Here’s a week in my life of spending.
Income & Expenses:
Salary: $1560 x 2 a month. I make $40k after tax p.a ($416/fortnight in tax currently)
Car expenses: $120/ month (this covers my rego, insurance, tyres and maintenance) Fuel: $100/ month
Bills: $200/month (paid to my parents, who I live with - this is basically rent)
Savings: $2000/month. I transfer $1000 straight into a HYSA the moment I get paid. This fortnight has been different however in that I gave myself a full pay check to spend to recover from my break-up.
Student loan: this is paid through my pretax income.
School fees: $255 a month.
Assets & Debts:
Student loan: $7,589 in student loan debt for a nursing degree I didn’t complete. Half of this is about to get written off though as part of my retroactive withdrawal. It will be around $4,900 after my retro is processed.
Savings: $22,000 in a HYSA. I contribute 1000 a pay check to this
Bills: $540 (I contribute $190 a pay check to this, and my school fees are deducted automatically. I manually deduct all car expenses tho).
Investments: $1000 in personal investments. I will be contributing $200 a fortnight to this and reducing my savings to $800. This is a goal of mine.
Retirement Account: $2,089 in my superannuation. I want this to be higher, so I might make some extra contributions next year.
TW: I just left a two-year long abusive relationship. I’m a mess during this. This week may also be a bit different spend wise as I have given myself a whole pay check to spend to make myself feel better.
I also want to make a side note that iso is a little different for my country - we are still allowed to see one other person and go to the beach etc. we’re very lucky to have minimal community spread and my state especially has gone for a “borders-closed, test and trace everything” approach to coronavirus. We even have a map that highlights all of our COVID hotspots. You can view the map here: COVID MAP
Money Diary:
Day 1
0715 - Finished work for the week! Yay. It was a stressful one as there was some beef at work. I work in healthcare, with a group of women, and the bitchiness can be insane. The upstairs manager warned our new manager about us, saying we always do naughty things like go and get food (even tho she joins in with us!?) and it turned into a big thing. I sing Jafro’s “Friday” on the way home to reset my mood.
0800 - stop off and get cash out ($50) to pay back my friend. I also run into the 24hr chemist whilst I’m there. I left my abusive ex 4 weeks ago (cut contact 3 weeks ago) and found out that he’s already moved on. It’s hurting very badly, so I’m trying to do more self care to help myself (it’s not really working...) buy Bondi Sands gradual tanning milk, 1hr express tan, ultra dark foam & a new tanning mitt. $129.95
1430 - overslept. Damn it. My state has a slightly more lax isolation policy in state (we are allowed to meet with 1 person outside with 1.5m distance between us) so I was supposed to be paying back my friend today. My friends pissed that I stitched him up, but he agrees to meet again tomorrow at 10am. I have a caramel protein shake and high protein peanut butter on a crumpet for breakfast.
1445 - hit hard with the break up feels and cry. It’s been three weeks. I was miserable in the relationship (physical and emotional abuse, he assaulted my dog and tried to sexually assault me, tried to murder me etc) but this is my first heartbreak and honestly it is hard seeing him so happy when I’m so hurt. We were together two years and lived together for one. Remove all his family from Facebook and block his new girlfriend. Slap on some make up and feel slightly better about myself.
1530 - head to my brothers house. Like I said before - our isolation is different in that we are still allowed to visit immediate family and attend gatherings of 2 people (socially distanced of course!) We stop through drive thru and try a Hungry Jack’s sticky date pudding ($3.95 - my brother pays). Have a cider and play with my nephew.
2045 - dinner. My brother cooks a chickpea dish with butter, coconut, chilli and mushrooms. It’s good. And it’s free. We have a deep chat about the break up and I feel a lot better once I leave.
2230 - arrive home from my brothers. I sit in my car for a minute before heading inside. The sad feels rise up again and I kinda squish them back down. This really, truly, sucks. I know it’s going to get better real soon though as I can already see my perspective on everything changing. I’m going from being very - why didn’t he pick me / what’s wrong with me to feeling compassionate for his new ex and the shitshow she will soon face.
1120 - wash my face with a witch hazel toner and sleep.
Daily total: $129.95
Day 2
0445 - Wake up. Come to the realisation that I lost my cash out yesterday :( am annoyed. Tell myself that somebody used it to buy Easter eggs and it made them happy. Mental note to get more cash out.
0515 - breakfast. Caramel protein shake and peanut butter crumpet. I switch it up today and milk to my protein shake. It’s good.
0700 - and my period starts! schedule an assignment presentation for 4pm Wednesday. I’ll start on it later today. I do a 20 min Pilates workout, but my period cramps really slow me down.
0745 - Shower. I am currently using the Body Shops Moringa body wash (although I swap between strawberry and Shea as well). After my shower I apply the Body Shop Shea Body Butter everywhere and Cocoa Butter to my dryer skin. Wash my face with dove soap, gone with Witchhazel toner. I apply sunscreen & Olay total repair face cream.
0830 - straighten my hair & apply make up. Leave at 0845 to get cash out and to head to meet my friend (it’s a drive). $50
1000 - meet my friend for a takeaway coffee and go for a walk. He pays. I pay him back the $50. He gives me a self care hamper which includes a bottle of wine and an edible.
1300 - get home. Eat edible. I spent the rest of the day conked out on the couch. I order HJs. $13.95
Daily Total: $63.95
Day 3 -
1200 - I wake up super late cause edible + sleep deprivation = sleep. I have a peanut butter crumpet.
1500 - make hot cross buns with my mom. Eat the hot cross buns. They’re good. Lie down and watch a movie with mom.
1600 - caramel protein shake. More movies with my mom. Me and her talk about the break up. Mutually decide that the first guy I brought home at 14 was a disaster, and my ex wasn’t much better. Tell her about the guys I have been talking to on snap. It’s good.
1700 - Send out a fire snap selfie and feel myself for the first time since the break up. I am some hot shit.
1900 - eat a chicken wrap for dinner. Had a family zoom where we versed my grandparents and cousins in a quiz. My mom, dad and I win. Talk with my family for another hour.
2030 - take the two dogs for a walk with my dad. We have an 11yo staffy and a 15 week old puppy. The 15 week old is hard to walk as she likes to stop and sniff stuff. She’s cute tho 😍
2145 - Watch Death Race with my parents. Eat another hot cross bun. It’s Easter. Diet starts Monday. I’m on my period too so that’s my other excuse and I’m rolling with it. I don’t feel guilty tho - which is unusual for me. I’ve found my levels of anxiety have decreased significantly since the break up.
2200 - take a vitamin D, magnesium and multivitamin. Take my antidepressant. I started these midway through the year. I took a gap after my break up. But have restarted them again. They’re causing me major headaches atm but I know they will help soon.
2300 - do a slow Pilates workout (30 minutes). My period cramps are really, really slowing me down. I begin cleaning out my room as I want to sort all of my stuff out and slowly remove my ex from my life. Once this is done, I head to bed and sleep.
Daily total: $0
Day 4 -
0830 - wake up and it’s Easter Sunday. Have hot cross buns with mom and eat enough chocolate to put myself into a food coma.
1000 - food coma pains. Head back to bed.
1230 - wake up, eat more chocolate. I watch an episode of Escape to the Country with my mom.
1500 - have pasta for a late lunch / dinner. Put myself into another food coma so I head back for another lie down. I have work tonight anyway, so I need to make sure I get those zzz’s.
1730 - Still experiencing bad period pains and on top of that, my confidence is lacking from my shitty diet this week. I’ve begun reading “Rescu Me!” By Bahar Etminan to help me build my confidence a bit. I’ve already planned out my workout routine for the next week as well. Starting tomorrow, I’m gonna stop using my phone for the first 2 hours of the day because I’m finding that it’s destroying my productivity and making me miserable. So. Not. Worth. It. I do some light stretching and commit to doing a slow and soft workout. At least it’s something, right?
1800 - place my first clothing order for things for my new wardrobe. I needed some dresses and long pants, and I had these items in my cart for a while. $219.40
1830 - Place a Pretty Little Thing order. It’s my first time shopping with them. $250
Daily total: $469.40
Day 5 -
0100 - place princess polly order for 4 items at work. I want to try out all of these online shops so that later I can choose which one to come back to. Use my student discount to bring the total to $99
0715 - work finishes. Chat with my co-workers for a bit and then drive home. It was public holiday pay today which is always nice? But I’m feeling super tired and am ready to go home.
0800 - I struggle to sleep and have a panic attack about my ex and how long it’s taking to get over him. I want to love myself just as much as I loved him, in all honesty. I miss him so much it hurts and thoughts of him with his new girlfriend kill me, even if he was abusive. I just keep thinking about all the good times and it is breaking my heart. I cry myself to sleep.
1345 - wake up. Have oats, a caramel protein shake and a cup of tea. Play with puppy for an hour. She’s currently going through a stage of being super bitey and she leaves a mark on my leg.
1530 - I feel super tired so I go back to bed. Set my alarm for an hour.
1800 - actually sleep for two hours. Get up again and help myself to a Lindt chocolate ball and some of my already opened Dream Easter egg. Period cravings what can I say. I’m attempting to clean up my diet a bit this week.
1850 - Do a 20 minute Pilates legs workouts. I do a glute isolation. Feel a lot better after doing a workout.
1930 - Shower! I wash my hair as I’m feeling a little gross. Get dressed for work and get into my car.
2045 - My night shift starts, so I’ll end today’s diary here. Food I ate during the night includes: Rice Krispies and milk, caramel latte and brown rice chicken and veges for dinner. I can’t sleep during the night, so I do another 20 minute workout. This time I target my inner thighs - as my period has me feeling gross, I refuse to work out my abs for a little while.
Daily total: $99
Day 6:
0715 - Another day of work finished. Again, more healthcare beef. I’m seriously considering just applying for Paramedicine - as they have started recruiting here in Perth. I feel super passionate about helping others, and I feel it would be the perfect role for me.
0800 - arrive home. Wash my face and clean my teeth. This witchhazel toner smells disgusting but it’s really doing wonders for my blackheads in my T-Zone. My backs hurting really badly, so I pretty much pass out the minute I hop into bed.
1500 - a good sleep, again. I think my tablets are starting to work. Last week I was barely managing 2-3 hours of sleep a day as I was working, so this has been a welcome change. I relax in bed for a little and get out of bed.
1530 - Oats for breakfast and have 2 Lindt chocolates with my mom. Catch up with my parents about their day (Dads just finished painting the house) and play with the dogs. I match with my first boyfriend on tinder (LMAO) and we text back and forth for a while. I’ve been using tinder a lot with my breakup, and have met a few decent guys. I organise to meet up with one of them next Friday for a date at his place, as we have been texting for nearly a month now.
1730 - I do a HIIT cardio workout for 45 mins. It’s killer, but it feels good. I follow this with a 20 min targeted oblique workout. Then I get ready for work.
1900 - I stop for Gas on the way, as it’s only 0.85c per litre! Which is crazy. I get myself a superfood ball & some sweets for my co-workers. $30.44
2045 - Arrive at work to find that my co-workers are all on a diet. I have three of the sweets but am repulsed by them. They’re the Sour Patch kids freeze ones - and they taste like pure menthol. Disgusting.
2100 - more ex feelings. Damn it. I keep telling myself to wish him happiness in his new relo. But I can’t help but feel like he doesn’t care about me at all. Even though he has narcissistic personality traits & I know he can’t be alone and the fact that he moved on so quickly is a sign he hasn’t changed. I read my article from PMS that’s been helping me a lot, and feel a lot better.
2300 - have dinner with my co-worker. I eat a vanilla yoghurt & roast lamb with veges. I also drink a caramel latte sachet. She’s obsessed with this show from her hometown, so we watch it for a little while and talk about things. It’s quiet at work from 2200-0330, so we take this time to work on our studies or just catch up with one another.
Daily total: $30.44
Day 7:
0715 - Works finished. The big boss agrees to be my professional reference so I can apply for Paramedicine. I don’t meet the age requirements, but I’m really hoping this is my chance because the more I think about it, the more I am desperate to pursue this career.
0800 - arrive home and head to bed.
1615 - I oversleep and miss my assessment call. Oops. I contact my instructor and he is very understanding.
1645 - my co-workers have been getting onto my case about starting Salary Packaging. I set up the appointment for tomorrow.
1700 - White Fox Boutique order. I spot a crop top (white) that I really like & a black corset top. I’ve never really worn either. I’m trying to improve my confidence by stretching my style a little bit and feeling more confident in my body. $89.90
1930 - Pick up a burger from a local store on the way to work. I’m trying to buy from Australian stores, specifically local chains, to help with the COVID crisis. $14.50
2045 - Night shift starts. It’s already chaos on arrival, so I don’t predict I will be sitting down for long.
2300 - update, night shift is chaos. I’m going to end my diary here, but jeepers. I’m exhausted already.
Daily total; $104.40
Final thoughts:
This was definitely a high spend week for me. Like I said previously, after leaving my relationship I had to get rid of most of my clothes and belongings. Thus, I basically had to buy a new wardrobe!! No regrets though.
I usually buy clothes once a year - but this is something I need to work on. I need to find balance in my budget, as I have a tendency to over save.
Thanks y’all, hope you’re safe and well x

2020.02.27 09:38 Bay_Area_MH Top 10 Questions About Therapy and Counseling

Top 10 Questions About Therapy and Counseling

1. How do I know if I need therapy?
We have developed a brief quiz to help you determine if therapy would help you. While this is not a full assessment, it may guide your thinking and choice of whether therapy might be a good choice at this time. We also offer free phone consultations to briefly discuss the problems you are experiencing, make an initial recommendation and answer any questions you may have. Once you meet with your therapist, should you choose to make an appointment, we may update our recommendation based on new information.
2. How do I choose a therapist?
The choice of therapist is a very personal decision. Research shows that your relationship with your therapist is the most important factor in making good progress on your therapeutic goals. After you contact us for the first time, we will call you for a brief consultation. At that time we will attempt to match you with a therapist who specializes in your needs. If for any reason you don’t bond with your therapist, we can either transfer you to another therapist in our practice or provide you with outside referrals. We recommend you meet with a therapist 3 times before making a decision about whether or not to continue. We respect and honor your time and your decision.
3. How long will therapy last?
This is a reasonable question and difficult to predict. Research shows that the duration of therapy is variable and can be influenced by the therapeutic approach, the strength of the relationship with your therapist, as well as factors specific to you. These other factors may include your goals, personal characteristics, the nature, severity, chronicity, and complexity of the problem(s) you are experiencing, external factors such as what else is happening in your life and available social support, the extent to which you actively engage in the treatment, and how comfortable you are with making changes.
Depending on your specific needs and goals, therapy can be short-term, for a specific issue, or longer-term, to deal with recurrent life patterns or your desire for more in-depth personal growth. Some clients experience significant improvement and some require a longer course of treatment. Therapy is a collaborative process and your progress and goals will be discussed during the course of treatment.
4. How long are sessions and how often do we meet?
Sessions are 50 min unless you request a longer appointment, which occasionally can be helpful. Typically we will meet weekly, though in some cases either twice weekly or every other week is more appropriate. You can discuss this with your therapist and they will make a recommendation based on the problems you are experiencing and your current circumstances.
5. What should I expect in the first appointment?
The first appointment will be 50 min. You will be asked to complete a brief online questionnaire (encrypted for your privacy) prior to the appointment which will give the therapist some basic information. During the appointment your therapist will ask you questions about problems you are experiencing and your goals for therapy. Sometimes an individual’s primary concerns or symptoms are not within our area of expertise. If this happens, we will refer you to another professional who can help.
6. What if there are things I don’t want to talk about?
Our aim is to help you feel comfortable and safe during sessions. That means that we don’t ask you to talk about anything you don’t wish to talk about. We value emotional safety in therapy, which means that there may be times that we may actually slow down disclosure and processing in order to prevent you from feeling flooded by emotion. The pace of therapy is a collaborative process between you and your therapist.
7. What about privacy and confidentiality?
Your privacy is our upmost concern. We are governed by law regarding confidentialy and cannot share your information with anyone without your prior written consent. Additionally, as therapists we are mandatory reporters and there are a couple of exceptions to confidentiality. In the case of child abuse, elder abuse, or significant risk of self harm or harm to others then we may be required by law to refer out to a third party.
8. Do you prescribe medication?
We do not prescribe medication however we are happy to talk to you about the possibility of including medication in your treatment plan. If we think that medication may be helpful and you agree, then we will refer you to a local psychiatrist with whom we have developed a close relationship. If you have basic (non-medical) questions about taking medication we are happy to discuss this with you.
9. How do I pay? Will you take my insurance?
We accept cash, check and credit card, though we prefer check if possible. We don’t take insurance directly but you can request a “single case agreement” from your insurance provider if you’re coming to us for specialized services that aren’t covered by them, such as DBT and trauma therapy. In any case, we will provide you with a “Superbill” which is formatted for reimbursement from your insurance carrier. Please check with them directly to find out what your level of coverage is.
10. How do I make an appointment? Do I need a referral?
The easiest way to make an appointment is to request a consultation. You can also email us directly at bayareamh.com.

I don’t comment much. I’ve been watching Barca for 10+ years and that was one of the worst performances I’ve ever seen from them. No movement, no runs being made, no width. Can’t string consecutive passes together. What do they do in training? What are the tactics? I can’t even tell. It’s the kind of performance that gets the manager sacked. I can’t see Valverde staying much longer. God that was bad.
Author: Butcher0fBlaviken Score: 176 pts Source
Great showing by the boys, had a nice trip to Granada, played a bit of footy. Good vacation for FC Friends!
I think this might be the season Valverde finally sees his vision for the club come to life, something he has failed to do in last 2 years. We're on course for a phenomenal 57 point season, 19 home wins, 19 away defeats, and a cosy midtable finish. Valverde feels at home, finally. The only one who can fuck with this is Lionel fucking Messi, he might actually win us some points and shit all over Valverde's hard work if he recovers his form, something he has done for 2 years now.
Snark aside, I don't care for people saying "he got his tactics right, it's not his fault the team fell asleep." well, it is his fault if the team falls asleep every other game. Even when we win, we have stretches where we are absolutely clueless, not just falling back and taking it easy to slow the tempo down a bit, we're fucking lost for 10-15 mins. He's not just a coach, he's a manager, he needs to make our players realize that performances like these are not an option. Any good manager will skin the team for this, and if it doesn't work out, change the manager, or sell the entire fucking squad, whichever one is easier (guess which one is).
All that's going to happen is at the end of the season is we'll continue to be mediocre, the players will take the blame because being at fault has no consequences at this club anymore, and people in denial will keep saying "we've always been a mediocre club, our golden generation was an exception".
Author: Juhis10 Score: 108 pts Source
"Granada has come closer to the second goal than Barça have to the first" speaks volumes and has been the case for not just this match but many other games this season especially the away ones. This is the thing that frustrates me so god damn much.
How can we with the players we have, be so toothless compared to the teams playing against us? We literally have most of our starting eleven inside the top 10-20 of their positions and it doesn't show up in any way in our collective play. Individual plays here and there but our play as a team beyond the half-way line is horrendous, effort after an effort that result in nothing but an eye roll is something else. I don't understand why I'm surprised week after week seeing our game be so dull.
What even can be said about the fact that Valverde put out a lineup that he COMPLETELY changed after the first half. Good on him for at least changing it but how mental is it that it had to be basically redone completely?
I'm not an expert and I don't have the answers to how we should fix this, well... other than ValverdeOut but for FUCKS SAKE WE ARE FC BARCELONA AND WE SHOULD BE SO MUCH BETTER THAN THIS.
Author: Iwabik Score: 68 pts Source
We have no game plan, no chemistry, our players look lost, can't get a shot on target against GRANADA for over 80 minutes and our best player this season is 16yo kid. Honestly, whenever I look at us there is no formation, no plan, nothing, everybody just stands wherever the fuck they want hoping somebody will do something. We have bunch of fantastic players but not a team and what's worse - we don't have a man to put it all together.
At this point I have no idea what's EV doing. Why are we playing Grizz off position on the wing and not ST instead of Suarez who's been in shit form for the last two years? Why the fuck Arthur didn't play even from the bench? He should have been on since half time. We look so clueless it's beyond bad at this point, hopefully we fire EV asap.
Author: razorxx888 Score: 27 pts Source
So, a couple of things to take away from this match.
First off, fuck this ref. Gave unnecessary yellows, called unnecessary fouls, and didnt even have VAR look at our penalty shouts.
Im usually up to giving Valverde a chance and there are many reasons for this rough start. New players coming in/getting promoted. Players coming back from injury and Valverde has been trying a couple things.
However, starting Firpo in a tough match up that even the manager himself predicted, was a mistake. Subbing in Vidal when we needed Arthur more, was a mistake. And Griezmann was a ghost. Hes not being utilized correctly. Also, i think moving Sergi to RB was correct since he couldnt have been subbed off even though he had a rough game himself. We had no other fullback.
Lastly, i think it is time for a new manager and new tactics. We have a great offense and midfield. Theyre just not being used correctly. Were not a defending team. We never were. We defend by attacking.
"Id rather win 5-4 than 1-0"
And that being said, its only 5 games to the season. We still have many games left but if Valverde makes it past January as manager, which he probably will, he shouldnt be here for another season

2019.12.29 23:24 Galactica98 Want to write a novel, any suggestion would help.

This is my first time posting and I really want to improve my story writing. I would love to hear any feedback WARNING: IT'S LONG
first 10 pages of what I wrote so far.

For the past couple of nights my sleep has been very disturbed. Whole weekend my neighbor’s dog barking kept me awake. Sometimes I feel like the dog has visions of something, it keeps barking around 3 in the morning every time. Even though we live in a safe neighborhood, with no crime and intruders. Last night my test anxiety kept me up for most part of the night. I have this big exam coming up and want to do my best. After all good grades will get me to my desired job. Anyways I think I can sleep well tonight and wake up early to attend my classes. I live 20 mins away from campus, so I must wake up an hour before class to catch the bus. Dorm was not my interest which is why I live in a small home close to campus. I made my bed and made my bag ready for tomorrow morning. I’m the type of guy who keeps everything prepared before time to avoid forgetting items. When I was growing up my father would always do this before work, which is what I imitate now. I would say that it has helped me in life, it makes me look organized and responsible. It was getting late and I pulled the sheets over myself while resting my head on the pillow to go to sleep. The moment I went to bed I don’t remember anything and fell into deep sleep stage by completely skipping REM. To be honest I can’t even remember any dreams from last night, I was in some deep sleep. In the morning when I woke up and looked at my phone it was already 9:00. At that moment I felt as if the ground below me had vanished and I fell face down. I can’t believe it I overslept my class was at 8:00. These things would panic me a lot since I never miss any class and have an obsession of being punctual. Back in high school I won prizes for perfect attendance for two years. My eyes couldn’t believe the time and my heart started pumping rapidly. In a panic situation I got up from my bed and grabbed my clothes to get ready, so I didn’t miss the other class at ten.
When I made it to the bus stop, it came to my knowledge that the bus was not going to be there before 9:45. Currently it was 9:15 and if I remember my weather forecast, it was about time for rain to start pouring.
“Could this day get any worse.”
I frowned and looked toward the ash grey sky with helplessness. In that moment of distress an idea struck my mind. What if I called uber and it would take 20 mins to reach campus? Meaning it would be safe enough for me to attend my class, and not get soaked out in rain. The uber came in 5 mins and I sat inside an old rusted van the color of khaki, which was covered in residue of wet dirt. The van inside had a bad odor and it looked as if a tornado came inside the van. The driver had items all over his vehicle, seemed like a person who didn’t care much about being organized. If I had enough money to afford a car, I would keep it fresh and never let dirt get on it. Seriously unorganized people are just a mess; I mean how do they live every day. At least being in the van was better than being soaked waiting for bus. Fortunately, I made it on time to class and sat next to my friend. Susan was a nice friend of mine we had taken some classes together last year and she is also in my Latin class. Latin was the class I missed today and was hoping I didn’t miss too much. Susan was kind of like me who wouldn’t miss classes, so I asked her about it.
“Hey! Was there anything important in Latin today?”
Susan smiled at me and after staring into my eyes she replied with hesitance.
“I’m sorry Adam you missed the surprise test. I was worried that you would not come today.”
When she told me that I couldn’t understand what to say, how was I having such a rough day. What did I do wrong to deserve this? I am a dedicated student who doesn’t miss classes. I just want to enter business to start earning money to get luxurious items, travel exotic places and have a mansion. I couldn’t focus the entire time in lecture and kept thinking about my failure at life, and how will I achieve my dream. At the end of class after saying goodbye to Susan, I went to café for feeding myself since I didn’t have breakfast today.
Roughly an hour later I went to my other class, and after that I had a club meeting to attend. Everything seemed normal and boring as usual. My mind kept wandering to the fact that today’s morning was very rough. Whenever I thought about my morning the only thing, I would do was take a huge sigh, and look down. I felt super miserable, especially knowing the fact that I’m the only child and my parents have tremendous expectations from me. All these thoughts sometimes put a lot of burden on my shoulders, I’m barely 20 and already feeling a myriad of responsibilities. It was around 4:00 and I decided to head home after a long day at college, just to catch up on some chores at home. I started walking down the street to the bus stop, in hope of catching the bus on time to take me home. Even though it was pouring in the morning, by the afternoon it was bright sunny. Summer days were coming to end with fall just around the corner. It was the month of September and it has been mild not too hot. I was satisfied to stand at bus stop in a nice weather. A minute later my peripheral vision caught something approaching me from the right side. I turned my head facing east to see who it was, to my surprise it was a cute girl walking towards me. The girl stopped next to me and positioned her body towards me. When I took a fresh look at her, I recognized her from my Econ class. She had beautiful hair the color of chocolate, and properly straightened. Her grey eyes were unique with bluish taint resembling pieces of nickel. She had a breathtaking smile which would turn any grief into joy. In courtesy I reciprocated her gesture and smiled at her. In my mind I kept thinking that there is no way this cute girl will talk to me, or she is probably taken. I stand no chance in making her impressed she is out of my league, and I have close to no prior experience in relationships. Suddenly during my train of thoughts, the girl confidently initiated the conversations
“My name is Alicia. We are in the same Econ class of Professor Justin. I see you are not a talking person.”
I was not anticipating anything like this to happen, a girl leading the conversation. I chuckled and went to introduce myself.
“Ha-ha, no it’s not like that. I’ve seen you before in class my name is Adam. Nice to meet you. Where are you heading if you don’t mind me asking?”
It was a coincidence that she was heading home also, but in a different town. During this encounter I was making sure to be confident and ace those icebreaker conditions. She was cute, so I wanted to make sure I didn’t come out as a creep. I just kept telling myself to give my best shot because there is nothing to lose. Bus approached the stop, and me being a gentleman I allowed her to enter first. The bus was crowded, so I decided to stand and let Alicia sit down. The moment let her sit down she turned polite and said.
“We can sit together I will scoot over for you.”
When she said that it made me enter this euphoric feeling, my heart was skipping beats and I just didn’t want the moment to end. Now not only did I meet a cute girl, but also found good company. I sat next to her and we had a nice long conversation about our lives. This whole time when I was talking to her she would keep smiling and her eyes never left sight of me. She would speak in such a soft way that it made the environment so peaceful. There were many people on the bus, but it felt like it was just us two focusing on each other. That bus ride was the best moment of my whole day. It felt like she was the cure to my sadness, the type of girl who can make me comfortable and happy. I’ve never felt this strange emotion when someone makes truly makes your day glorious. My stop was approaching and before leaving I asked for her number and without any delay, she typed it on my phone. It was time I departed, and she was going to stay a little longer. She said goodbye and I thanked her for being a great company and waved at her. The feelings I had were too wild, she was a perfect girl who made me feel joyful. My heart was still pumping vigorously as if I ran marathon before getting off the bus. On my walk to the house I kept thinking of her beautiful face and her pleasant personality. I looked up to the sky and smiled thinking that I should be grateful for this day. I should be thanking God for sending an amazing girl who I met today. Now I had forgotten that I had a rough day, or I missed a test. I was like life is supposed to be enjoyed not stressed about meaningless things. Things will come and go let me just enjoy these small beautiful moments, and I probably will be feeling restless the before I meet her again.
Around 5:30 I entered my home it took me longer to get back home because I had some grocery items to pick up. By the time I opened the door my eyes caught sight of the dinning table and I saw Jason sitting on the chair. Jason was my room mate he was a chill dude who is an old friend of mine. Jason and I met each other last year in a class, and we both immediately felt a connection. Our friends refer to us as the non-biological brothers. Both of us treat each other like a sibling and honestly Jason should get more credit than I do. He has always been like a brother to me, helped give me guidance and emotional support in rough times. I remember around Christmas time last year my sister was at the hospital and the doctor told us that she is diagnosed with early stage of blood cancer. I was mentally and emotionally very devastated to hear the news, knowing the fact that my sister is my only sibling best friend in this world. I’ve spent many years with her, and she always made me feel special. During these times of sorrow when me and my family were in severe grief, I got a call from Jason, saying he wants to meet us. I remember on December 27th Justin drove 2 hours to get to my house and spent the whole day being support for us. Fortunately, my sister has been making good progress and she is battling cancer well. Honestly, I can never reciprocate what Justin has done for me and my family, and he is an angel to many others also. Justin was wearing his usual pjs and his blue Golden State shirt. He was staring at his phone and then he turned his eyes towards me and replied with a smile.
“Sup dude, how was your day?”
“You know bro same old how about you?”
Jason replied with a casual gesture and told me that nothing much took place. For a second I felt like telling him about who I met today, but then I felt embarrassed to share it. I just wanted to keep it a secret and enjoy it myself, so I chose to avoid sharing the highlight of my day with Jason. Also, I had a weird feeling that if I told Jason about Alicia he would get interested and try to make a move on her. I knew it was too early, but I wanted to be possessive about Alicia. She is my special girl and I want to make it official before telling someone. I was unloading the grocery bags when I heard Jason say,
“Any reason why you have that smile on your face?”
If I were to name a superpower Jason had it would be that he could read emotions. His academic intention is to study Chemical Engineering, but I think he has a minor in telepathy. I would get nervous when I first met him, but overtime I got used to it and learned to on poker face. In order to avoid the situation, I just told him that a professor complemented my work today. Luckily Jason was not the type of person who would interrogate and become a detective to solve mysteries, so he simple nodded to my reply and resumed doing his thing. I went to my room after eating a sandwich and started working on my assignments. Without even noticing it was already 11:15 and I was getting sleepy, so I decided to close everything and went to bed. Somehow, I was physically tired, but I was mentally really relaxed and my mind kept drifting to the girl. The encounter with Alicia kept playing repeatedly around one in the morning I finally fell asleep and woke up on time to make it to my class on normal time.
The day was Wednesday, and I did have my econ class today around noon. I was excited that maybe I will see Alicia again and talk to her about her plans this weekend. The moment I was about to enter the lecture room I heard a soft voice behind me say,
“Hi Adam! I see you are very punctual to class.”
I looked behind and saw the beautiful face of Alicia smiling at me. If tomorrow she looked cute, then today she looked breathtaking. My gosh she had make-up on, and it was matching her clothes. I gave her a chuckle and told her that being punctual is my priority, we both entered the lecture hall and sat in the middle of the room. During the lecture I was focused on the professor and didn’t say a word to Alicia, because when it’s time to be focused I don’t like getting distracted. To my surprise Alicia looked dedicated with her studies and kept taking notes. I was happy to see that she is very similar to me, so after lecture I started talking to her and gave her an offer to hang out sometime.
“Sure! Where would you like to go out?” she said.
Honestly, I was not expecting her to say something like that because I’ve never taken a girl out before, so without any experience I said the ice cream place. Without a pause she agreed with me and happily accepted it. On side note I was really worried she might refuse the idea, and a girl like her would want something lavish and romantic to please her. Lucky for me she accepted my humble offer and seemed happy. After that she went to her other classes I went to my classes. Rest of that day went well mainly because I got hyped from asking out a girl for first time and it worked. I don’t even remember how long I had a smirk on my face that day, since the only thing I could focus on was her saying yes. On my way back home, I sat on the bus near the window, and gazed the moving traffic outside. In my mind I kept pondering on the thought of being comfortable enough to call Alicia my girlfriend. There is something she likes about me, which is why she felt the urge to initiate the first interaction and now wants to go out with me. I was feeling a sense of pride in myself and believed that I was invincible enough to win her and amuse her with my looks and personality. Before Alicia there was nobody who praised me or made me feel special. The girls I would meet before her would simply friendzone me and never wanted to do anything special together. I was beginning to feel that Alicia entering my life is a good way for me to improve myself. Previously I was never that bold and confident in striking up conversations with a girl. I feel tranquil around her and I do my best to make her feel comfortable around me. Even though when I talk to her one can see her cheeks turn into pink roses, she starts blushing in my presence. On top of all that having Alicia around will be a good way to groom me and help me become a better man.
The time was around six when I reached home and found out that Jason was not home today. Usually Jason would be home prior to me unless he had an evening exam. I walked into the kitchen, dropped my bag on the carpet and started making myself some food. I pulled out a box of lasagna and decided to make it for both of us, so Jason didn’t have to worry about making something when he came back. I enjoyed my lasagna in solitude missing Jason’s company. Our home is small, and it feels lonely when nobody is talking. While I was chewing on the warm cooked lasagna my mind started thinking about how beautiful it would be to have Alicia around. She would be an amazing company to have at a moment like this, her pretty face with the smile, and soft voice would make me really enjoy the moment.
“Ahh! One day Adam, one day this will become reality.”
Just a minute later I heard someone unlock the door and entered Jason. I was excited to see him finally get back home.
“Where were you?” I asked to which he replied in an apologetic way as if he owed me something.
“Sorry dude I had to run to the bank, so I could get some cash out. You know tomorrow there is this charity drive for orphans, and I wanted to donate some cash for the kids to but their favorite toys.” “That’s an amazing cause you are donating for.” I replied.
Like I mentioned, Jason is a selfless person who will go out of his way to make someone’s day. I know that I can never become as good as Jason, but he would feel happy whenever I did something kind. People like Jason are rare in universe, who are selfless and have a smile on their face no matter what. I was wiping my mouth with a napkin after having my dinner when I saw Jason get excited to see lasagna on table. I let him know that I made extra for him, and he thanked me for being considerate friend. At the back of mind, I started thinking that doing small things makes Jason content, he never has high expectations nor lavish requests from others. While Jason was savoring the warm cooked lasagna, I went to my room and started working on my assignments. The first midterm exams were just around the corner, and I was in desperate situation of turning things around. Specially after the recent light of events where I my surprise quiz. I just need to let that leave my mind and start with new focus for this semester.
Moments before going to bed I was in the bathroom brushing my teeth while my phone was being charged. After cleansing my mouth from toothpaste residue, I grabbed my towel and put it up against my mouth to dry my face. I had all the mint flavor occupied in my mouth which made my breath fresh, I was about to pull the charger out when I heard a strong buzz. For a second it made me astonished to receive a message late at night, but when I glanced at phone screen it made me leap in excitement. Alicia sent me a text asking if I was doing something important? Honestly, I was never expecting a girl to initiate with the first text, despite that I only met her a few days ago. I was in a tumultuous state of mind, but mostly happy to finally find a girl who maybe likes me. After 5 minutes of pondering on the idea that Alicia is slightly taking interest in me, I finally decided to respond her back.
“No! but why do you ask.” I texted, to which she replied in a heartbeat “Just wanted to chat for a while.”
The text conversation kept going back and forth just sharing about our day, and I gave her some good laugh here and there. One could confidently say that both of us started developing some chemistry, and maybe the feelings were mutual. Alicia has a charming/extrovert personality plus the beautiful looks. Therefore, I don’t want to lose her and kept chatting with her until one in the morning. She is my special person, and if there is a girl who I want to spend my life with. Hands down without a doubt I would love to spend my entire life with Alicia. Some people have a secret habit, but for me I have a secret obsession to be in love with Alicia. I went to bed and had a sound sleep, but thankfully didn’t oversleep. My first-class today was Latin, and Susan was sitting next to me. I just casually greeted her and focused on what professor was teaching. I don’t want to get distracted, so I can get the grades I want and succeed at life. Susan was the type of girl who didn’t really care about her looks, I have never seen a stroke of makeup on her. She only spent time studying, scribbling notes and asking people questions regarding exams. I agree that education is vital, but at least treat yourself properly. How can you expect someone to like you if you don’t even care about how you look? When I saw Susan in class she looked as if she got out of bed and didn’t even bother changing clothes. On the contrary you can tell that Alicia dedicates time on her aesthetics, she puts decent makeup has a good taste in dressing and takes care of her body. With that being said she also has college on top of work to deal with, but still finds time to make herself look appealing. Those are the type of girls I want to spend time with, who care for themselves. Just like how wise people say,
“If you can’t care for yourself how do you expect another person to care for you.”
Anyways after class Susan walked to me and insisted that before the exam we should study together. Currently I didn’t want to spend any time with another chic, unless it was Alicia. Back of mind I had the fear that somehow Alicia will catch me with another girl and dump me. On top of that my irrational behavior would make Alicia upset which I don’t intend on doing.
“Sue! that’s a wonderful proposal, but I can’t commit to that.”
I did feel bad saying this to her but being an adult does mean that you make appropriate decisions. When she heard me say no her eyes rolled down and her face had a look of disdain. She was and still will be my close friend but spending time with her can put jeopardize my situation with Alicia. Besides I never had any feelings for Susan which is why I never hung out with her. She gathered some strength and darted her pupils towards me, straightened her torso and spoke in vociferous tone to me.
“Suit yourself I can find someone else to study with.”
Her response did sound bitter, because she had anticipated that I would accept her request. She was in return expecting me to join her to study together, but I couldn’t please her. We both went on through our normal day and I forgot about this scene by the end of day. Most likely she had also forgotten about this episode by now. Plus, I just refused to study with her not a big deal, a ton of people flake it. Susan was a mature girl who didn’t let her emotions control her minds, and she only focused on her goals in life.
By evening when I reached home, I wasn’t surprised to find out that Jason wasn’t home, because he had the charity drive. I decided that it would be a good time for me to call my sister and chat with her. Ever since last Christmas she has responded well to cancer, but emotionally she puts on a poker face. Meaning people never actually know how she is feeling.

His pilot had Mechanic and Traditionalist, healing part of his max hp per second while having increased max hp. I thought he was using invulnerability cheat

2019.06.23 03:58 Mademyaccforthispst Creating a much more competitive and enjoyable experience.

I am confident in saying that most players reading this have at some point in their League of Legends career had the following two thoughts:
  1. I'm playing with noobs who have no idea what they're doing, omg GG. FF 15, etc, etc. (I'm not saying you are flaming or trolling your team. I'm saying you have had that thought, or have felt the game is hopeless, you've already lost)
  2. I'm so far ahead, why is my team still losing wtf? Or, I'm so far ahead, why cant I close out games?
These two thoughts arise from the same core issue, and that is a lack of game knowledge. Whether you are very new and don't even understand last hitting, or you have mastered a champion, win lane yet still lose the game, all of these issues stem from a lack of game knowledge and the only difference being to what degree is this player lacking.
If you have agreed with my thoughts thus far, I'm sure you've also thought many times about how this could potentially be fixed. I know I have, more times than I'd care to admit. Up until now, this thought experiment has always ended in failure. I will now share with you what I believe is a simple and elegant way to tackle this issue head on.
Quizzes! There will need to be two seperate categories.
The first one would be centred around very basic game mechanics such as last hitting, how different types of minions interact with tower damage to help new players last hit better under tower, trinkets, wards, dragons, rift, barons, plants, etc etc. All of these would be presented individually to the player in a series of short 30sec - 1 min videos, followed by a question or a few questions if appropriate. I don't claim to have thought of every possible piece of info that could be included in this first category, however I am confident it would not exceed 30. I'm quite confident it wouldn't even approach 30, regardless whether it's 15 or 30, it doesn't affect the delivery method much. If we end up with 15 short videos and questions to match, new players would be given one pair every second level and if it were 30 videos/quizzes, it would simply be every level. Upon reaching level 30 by which point players would have completed every quiz in the New Player category, they are rewarded with the ability to purchase ANY 5 champions, however they must be chosen from preset lists and new players must take one for each role. Hopefully this will not only encourage new players to want to keep learning different champions and roles, but it will mean less players will be disheartened by how long it will take them to unlock some really cool champions when they start playing. They now know as soon as they get 30, they have free champions waiting for them!
The second category would simply be an on going thing, with quizzes being presented daily at first (one will be presented to you when you log in for the first time that day), and then simply upon login when a new one is released. These would look at more complex things like jungle pathing, lane control, advanced warding tactics, reading jungle info to stay safe against ganks, stuff like that. These would also be mandatory HOWEVER, you would now also be presented with an option to skip the videos if you are Master or above. The rest of us (me included) clearly still have some improvements to make. Completing each quiz MUST give the player some small reward or else it will simply act as something the players NEED to do and will therefore become an annoyance. My idea was simply some amount of blue essence. I know you might scream in the comments "lolnoob riot wont give away this much free shit" or something to that effect. I think they will. Why? Because by doing these two things:
  1. Educating players
  2. A free boost to their initial roster of champions
Riot is actually creating an environment that is MUCH better for keeping new players because they won't feel as though the knowledge gap is too large between them and existing players, as well as ensuring they don't get bored by being limited to such a small, and quite frankly uninteresting roster of starting champions. The best thing about this idea is just how few drawbacks it has. Nothing is perfect and no solution will be without its problems when it comes time to implement, but something that at its core focuses on education and FREE stuff, I have a feeling will be well received.
Constructive criticism and genuine, decent conversation will happily be replied to. I hope we can have a humane discussion here ladies and gents.
TL;DR - Fix noob players by introducing mandatory watching of SHORT videos + doing quizzes which when passed give FREE champs. Win/Win!
[Edit - Added the bad TL;DR]
