2023.05.29 17:38 ThXnDiEaGaIn WFH in India as a Software Developer in India and earning in dollars. Is it a thing?

Basically the title. I oddly have best efficiency to work at home. Not that I'm an introvert , or that i hate communication. I can do all of that. But home is home ig
WFH is an ideal job for me. But earning in foreign currency. That's a different world. Is it actually legit or is it just a fantasy?

2023.05.29 17:38 65jasdfb0432890weiku Help please I literally have no idea what to do

Hi, I’m feeling really angry and desperate lately and I’m just trying posting in this subreddit even though I have no affiliation with it so far.
Basically I’m a 30 year old guy, I’m handsome, I look young for my age, I’m intelligent, I’m very in shape, very active, have hobbies I love.
I was popular in college, but it’s been really hard for me to move forward since then. I literally haven’t had a relationship or done more than kiss someone once on a first date in about 6 years.
It’s been almost impossible for me to meet women. I don’t drink except on special occasions, and I rarely do anything else to become intoxicated (maybe a few times a a year), which severely limits places I can meet people.
I am really serious about music, boxing, meditation, and lifting weights, and these things along with my job pretty much take up all my time. Unfortunately, these are not very good hobbies to meet people, but I won’t change them. I love what I do, and I’m super passionate about my life choices.
The one time I went out to bars in the last several years was once on my birthday. I was definitely flirted with a lot then, but I just can’t go back to that lifestyle. I think I damaged my body when I used to drink in college, and I really hate how I can be when I’m under the influence.
Obviously I’m in the gym all the time, so part of me wants to try and talk to women at the gym. But every single thing online says absolutely not to do that. I totally get why. It’s not a place people go necessarily to get hit on. I know how serious I am about working out and so I don’t want to upset someone else or start a relationship off with a sense of disrespect.
Recently I took my parents out to a nice restaurant and the waitress was really cute and was totally flirting with me and smiling at me a lot. I really wanted to ask her out or something, but I know this is also not ok. It’s taking advantage of a power dynamic that service workers have to uphold as part of their jobs, and I wouldn’t want the start of a relationship to be due in part to something insidious like that.
I generally dislike dating apps because while I do get dates, they never feel “right”. It’s a lot of ghosting and it feels like because I’m just one of many options, I have to do exceptionally better than anyone else to retain a woman’s attention for more than one night. I’m just a normal, empathetic and emphatic guy. I don’t have pizazz.
It’s getting to the point where I’m afraid my desperation is starting to show to everyone, and it’s sending me further and further down the spiral of being alone for the rest of my life.
So I guess the question is what the fuck do I do? How do I have a relationship before it’s too late?
I also go on hikes and walks a lot, and recently started occasionally going to coffee shops for breakfast (not too often, it’s expensive). So far this hasn’t led to any interactions, although one woman I found very attractive hiking with her family checked me out pretty hard once.
As you can tell, I’m really trying to be optimistic, but I’m kind of grasping at straws here. Maybe I’m not actually attractive, and I’m overestimating? Maybe my personality is a huge turnoff. I really don’t know what to think anymore.
Please help me.

2023.05.29 17:37 sodavid90 Just a little rant…

So, for a little context, this happened last September…I’m good friends with a girl and she always respected and liked my Tarot readings (I work full-time with Tarot mainly on instagram, and sometimes I’ve some readings at Etsy and Fiverr…but insta is where my baby Is flourishing). I’ve predicted correctly her pregnancy and gender. So she wanted me at her kids baptism as a guest and my bf as her dj for fun. Till here, everything is okay…till one night, a week before the baptism, she comes super irritated with her father because he didn’t wanted the witch at his grandkids baptism. Even saying that he would have the priest do something to the table I would be at…hello to the new witch hunt 🤷‍♀️ saying thinks like “I will make a scene if she comes” “I will do whatever it takes so she feels uncomfortable” (it’s not hard to make me, a social anxious potato uncomfortable)…
I’ve seen her father before and he always seemed so nice, and then…it’s not the first time that people judge me because of my work, I comprehend that they do not understand it and simply judge a book by its cover, but it deeply infuriates me in some way. Not feeling welcomed made me feel sick to my Stomach when I truly did nothing wrong. I’ve only helped his daughter and supported her through thick and thin.
I ended up crying my eyes out (forgot to mention that I’m sensitive af) but got my things together and ended up going so she wouldn’t lose her dj a week prior to the event, my bf didn’t wanted to go anymore due to the disrespect towards me, but I made everything ignoring my own feelings for her. He ignored me all day long not even saying hello like he did to all guests (thank god after all he said before).
Nowadays we are still friends but I just can’t be too much in her life so I don’t aggravate her dads feelings or something…just for being myself 🤷‍♀️ oh and her mom is a hairdresser who was the last person to cut my hair nearly two years ago and she cut too much leaving me with a strange hair cut, way shorter than I wanted (I was trying to let my hair grow and it went from nearly mid back to the shoulder.). And one time I bought her kid a present, went to her home to present her with it and her mom Called asking what the creature was doing at her home…needles to say that she never touched my hair again nor have I been at her home again….yeah both her parents have something against me, at least she smiled and said hello at the baptism, lol. How comforting!
This was last summer, and I’ve had other moments where I felt people where or are disgusted with what I do, or trying to use me because of it for their own benefit. Like old schools colleagues who never gave a damn about when when in school and now that I have my tarot job, I’m cool out of the blue, but you know what? At the end of a long day, when people who truly admire and respect my job compliment their reading and bring back positive feedbacks…that’s what give me fuel to not give up…because I have thoughts about giving up a million times…
And if you are reading this and would or are working full time with tarot: never let others opinion get too deeply into your skin. Do what makes sense to you and be happy while you’re doing it. We won’t get acceptance or respect from everybody, so let’s cherish the ones who do.
And having shitty days like I’m having right now because memories like this are coming up? Are natural and normal…just keep swimming 🧡
This was just a stupid rant. Thank you for your attention 🧡

2023.05.29 17:37 doldollalasol Hihingi lang sana ng advice...

Hi, I am a graduating student (Course: BS Com Sci) A little backstory, I didn't like my course but thankfully I am graduating on time. I was asked and forced to took it by my eldest brother. This post is a bit long but please I need advice :C
I have lesser skills, my programming knowledge i basically zero and I am only good at designing but never on development. I have several job offers coming from our Department Faculty, my eldest brother, and from my tito. However, I am currently experiencing a personal crisis/issues sa mga offer nila.
•Dept Faculty
Pros: - Under ng govt project. (Research & Development) - Salary is impressive for entry-level position - Job description is easy - I'll be working with my thesis mates 🥰
Cons: - Delay lagi ang sahod especially for part timers/contractual agreement - Malayo yung papasukan ko if ever ma-push ko
Issue ko: - Will need to pay for monthly rent, eh paano ko mababayaran kung laging delay ang magiging sahod ko? - Ito rin yung first job offer na natanggap ko bilang unemployed, hindi ba may kasabihan na masama raw tanggihan ang pinaka unang offer na work?
•Brother's offer He has a start up company (web/mobile dev) and he's offering me for a co-founder position.
Pros: - Co-founder agad - Mabango sa resumé
Cons: - Di ko sure kung papasahurin niya ako or ano kasi wala naman sinabi na meron - My skills are not vast enough to help him build it.
Issue ko: - Hindi naman dahil ayaw ko sa offer niyang work pero siya ang ayaw kong makatrabaho.
•Tito as my backer
Pros: - Easy makapasok sa work - Known company yung papasukan if ever
Cons: - I don't know what work I might end up with
Issues: - It's cheating 😭 Alam ko naman na sa totoong buhay ay connections talaga ang kailangan pero hindi ko talaga kaya pa magawang magsend ng resume/cv sa kaniya para magtrabaho 😭

2023.05.29 17:37 Botchko Heading on a business trip

Feeling relieved that I can remain sober this weekend, before I would try to promise myself to not drink an rest up for travel then get drunk all day and night before heading to the airport. The amount of anxiety relief and emotional stability the days leading up to a work trip is night and day, grateful for the support with my family and especially with this community. If anyone can relate or in the same position, these trips become so much easier remaining sober. Any city I would land in my immediate GPS, even before reaching the rental car station was “liquor store near me” and wake up in my hotel with a bottle and 4-6 IPAs beside my bed and roll out of bed and try to get to my place of business on time. Never would be on time of course, made up a “meeting” that I had to take before and keep my team waiting on me even though my whole purpose of the trip was to get there for a day on site and provide leadership along with help. Never been more focused in my life. IWNDWYT at the airport!!!

2023.05.29 17:37 rak__911 I (20 M) feel like i have accomplished nothing

I used to be a good student. The past 2 years I've barely passed. I'm scared because i won't get accepted in good universities.
Since my dad died in 2020, I've been working. It's a dead end job. Redundant and basically 0 progress. I learned and got good at somethings just so that i have some progress in life. I still get paid the same but have to work more. I can't leave the job because nobody else is looking to hire an A Levels student. Even if they did they wouldn't pay good and it's too much of a risk for me.
My relationship is going through a rocky period. Fights and arguments. They really mess me up and i have 0 urge to do anything besides lay down and think.
Financially I'm a mess. Broken car, unpaid bills, holding off expenses just to get through the damn month.
I want to retire me mom. Forget about supporting my family, I'm barely making enough money to support myself.
Idk where to go in life. Idk what to do in the future. I don't have anyone to take advice from. I don't have so I'm someone that could guide me, help me. I need help. I tried being the tough guy and go through everything myself but i have failed miserably. I have accomplished nothing.
Idek why I'm writing this. I guess I'm just venting. I honestly don't know what to do. I've contemplated ending it (iykwim) before too. I'm getting the same thoughts now. I don't want to go that route.
It's tough trying to act normal when you're broken in so many pieces inside, you can't even be put back together. I just feel like a total failure.

2023.05.29 17:37 Orphandestroyer98 Handle with Care 6

Memory transcript subject: Lani, Venlil Gardner Date: [standardized human time] October 27th, 2136
Next paw was when Chris would be able to go to school, we have all his supplies so as a treat me and him went on a walk through town. I was passing by Marlik’s place so went inside and greeted him.
“Good paw Marlik how are you?” Marlik turned in my direction as he was tending his plants and when he saw Chris his wool puffed up. “WHY IS THAT PREDATOR NEAR YOU?!” Marlik was panicking he dropped his water fan on the ground. “Look Marlik its fine this is just my new son” I tried to calm Marlik down and his wool only slightly went down. “Look Lani I know we’re wonderful friends but what were you thinking bring him in here” Marlik then turned to Chris and Chris just stared silently with his hands in his hoodie pockets. “Look Marlik how about you and me talk at the table while Chris just takes a look at your garden” there was brief silence.
“Fine but if that predator ruins any of my plants we’re gonna have a problem” I could hear the slight anger in his voice so we headed to the table while Chris walked into the garden marveling at its beauty.
“So you mind exposing to me why you adopted a human?” I turned away from Chris and towards Marlik. “I just felt awful for them and hearing about Chris’s case I just knew I had to take him in” Marlik then grabbed a cup and filled it with juice and took a sip. “What does your daughter think of this Lani I mean seriously don’t you think this will affect her in school?” Marlik took a big sip from his juice. “Look Marlik my daughter hopes that it will be fine I’m just worried about the other kids you know” “look Lani it’s just that you need to be careful alright, also what was so special about Chris’s situation that you chose him?” I got a bit nervous when he asked “apparently he has something called autism” Marlik was now curious when he heard this. He tilted his head “what is autism?” He took another sip of his juice. “Is a genetic thing that makes it so he’s better at problem solving but it also affects his social skills as he has trouble with that” Marlik then looked at me “so it’s kinda like Predators disease?” When I heard this I got angry. “IT IS NOTHING LIKE PREDATORS DISEASE ALRIGHT,ITS JUST HIS BRAIN!” Marlik went back a bit with his wool puffed up a bit “Look Lani just calm down I don’t mean to insult him its just that it sounds similar” I leaned over the table “well maybe you shouldn’t go around assuming things like that, I mean you say that to a full grown human who knows what will happen” when I finished saying that Chris walked into the room. “Hey you guys done talking or? Me and Marlik then turned to Chris. “Oh yeah we we’re just finishing” Chris then turned to Marlik “hey you have a wonderful garden just one question” Marlik then stared at Chris.
“And what would that be?” Chris then pointed to a statue in the garden of Venlil with wings. “Where did you buy a statue like that, I mean it looks somewhat familiar to me but I just don’t know why” Marlik than looked at the statue and then back at Chris “I bought it at a antique store in town” “okay cool hey Lani can we go now?” I looked over to Chris “yeah sure come on”
We then left Marlik’s house and started walking around the town again when Chris stopped and was staring at a building. “Hey Chris you alright?” Chris then turned to me “they actually have a vegan Mc Donald’s?, come on we have to get something to eat” Chris then grabbed me by the hand and we walked towards the restaurant and inside. We then order a couple fries, some apple and a soda. “So Lani how do you like the fries?” I turned towards Chris “they are delicious I mean I can’t believe these are made of plants and they sell them so cheap” me and Chris then talked for a bit as we walked back home.

2023.05.29 17:37 No-Jaguar1028 85 days -- it will take time, but you do start to feel better

Im still kinda a baby in relative time to a lot of folk on here, but im at 85 days since I quit alcohol, and about three weeks in therapy. having hit my rock bottom, and so far its only gone upwards. Not getting too comfortable yet because I cant immidietely say that I cannot mess up, but id say it is safe for me to believe that Im not touching that shit again. Ive been thinking about it, and the interesting thing is I didnt realize I had a problem with alcohol until a little bit after I quit, and one or two occasions I found myself thinking 'I wish I didnt do what I did, id be able to drink and id still be friends with them', which I quickly denounced in my head with 'what could I have done worse?', which is all hypothetical and such, but it was an interesting eye opener, along with weeks 2-4 withdrawal, which wasnt the most fun. One of the two friends I have left was telling me that my former best friend was telling stories of our adventures and funny moments, and was telling said stories in really good spirits and was just happy to share them, which is really heartwarming, especially after what I did last time I drank(and subsequently blacked out, the worst of all previous times). anyone in early sobriety, especially if you have a lot of regrets and remorse for things you did that you wouldnt have done normally, it does get better over time. yesterday I went to the beach, and was reminiscing about fun things my former best friend and I would do and fun adventures we would go on, as opposed to ruminating, and, it was fairly refreshing. I found that one of my biggest 'reasons' for drinking was boredom, and over time, it became a way subconsciously to try to escape my own head, which clearly didnt, doesnt, and never will work out. IWNDWYT, tomorrow, or ever. This morning I went to the gas station and picked up a caffeinated seltzer water, and, im about to goto work (holiday pay), and im about to get manager pay this week too as im filling in for him, and ive been making money doing odd jobs -- yardwork, and helping my neighbor fix his motorcycle. my bike is running fairly well now, and ive been going places and doing things that before id dream of doing, but settle for drinking instead to pass time, and, really, getting out, and doing things truly is helpful, and soooo much better than drinking. stick to your hobbies and interests, try to stay productive, and try not to let boredom hit. if cravings insue, grab a soda, a coffee, a tea, seltzer water, ect, it will be greater than any 'hard' beverage. and you wont feel like shit after too. you all got this!!!
thank you for coming to my TED talk xD

2023.05.29 17:37 chongjunxiang3002 [Doom post ahead] Re: Depreciation of Ringgit

This thread is not about whose fault for ringgit depreciation right now.
A currency flow is a complicated manner that no government nor central bank dare to play with, so all can they do is small adjustment on OPR. Any big change will be a daring bet, a jackpot or a tsunami for entire economy system, so we won't likely see them pegging the currency again (that may hurt exporting industry), nor further increase interest rate (that make borrowing harder).
There was a reason why ringgit leave currency union of Brunei and Singapore in 1975, as that was the time country many attempt to adjust themselves from agricultural base economy to heavy industry export economy, so the free market do the job. The pegging of 1998 was performing to storm through the crisis that we did fine/not fine. You can all laugh 3:1 or very soon 10:1, but that is how free market work, and we are in disadvantage position.
However, they might be a point of no return for currency depreciation. Once a undeterminable threshold is crossed, there will be no more investor believe in ringgit. And soon it will be just downfall like waterfall. After the event horizon, the currency can only go down, there is no more measure that can resuscitation (even harsh market manipulation can only turns thing worse).
Might as well just become Hungary forint in 1946, or your favourite laughing stock, Zimbabwe.
Just like Sri Lankan rupee depreciation of 2022, that slow boiling water just turning into steam jet once a trigger is push (4 Mac, 1LKR-0.0049USD vs 1LKR-0.0028USD, 6 May)

Now, place a risk free bet here, are we crossing the event horizon already?

Additional discussion down in comment:
  1. Should we stocking up assets instead of currency? Gold anyone?
  2. Are we going to see 1SGD=RM5 or RM10 before 2030? I am asking this for my future, all my talented family members are now work at Singapore and somewhere else, leaving me the sole loser with poor skill set still staying here, with a certain foolish hope. Long $ROPE or believe in Falling Devil might be comforting choice for me if this is the case.
Let's discuss.

2023.05.29 17:37 TeaRevolutionary2000 Chose the wrong career. Is my life ruined?

Long story short I got a degree in VFX (BA hons). I realized in the first year that it wasn't for me but I thought I should stick it out. I'm graduating in a few weeks and the thought of getting a job in my field fills me with fear and dread. I definitely don't want to be doing this in 10 or even 5 years or at all if possible. My parents are very opposed for me to do anything else and I feel trapped.
Overall I'm feeling depressed and uncertain about the future and need someone to talk to.

2023.05.29 17:36 nickel4asoul I still feel like I should've done more.

About a week ago, I (34m) was walking to the nearby supermarket and had to pass through a walkway that went under a station. There were several other people ahead of me walking in the same direction and another behind us.
There are several bars near to where I live and a town centre with even more, so it's not unusual to hear drunk people getting into fights or shouting. Before I'd entered the tunnel there'd been the sound of two people in a loud argument and a possible fight before one of them began coming our way - the person behind us.
He was muttering and ranting to himself, saying really sick shit, so could hear him getting closer. I looked behind me to see which side of the tunnel he was on so he could pass by, but when I turned back around I caught the two girls ahead of me flinch and realised I'd missed something important. I'd initially thought he was just wearing a hood, only now that he was a couple steps behind me it became clear it was a sweater wrapped around his head with only the eyes exposed. And that's when I spotted he was holding a butchers knife.
Between the look in his eyes, which I can only describe as crazed or like meeting the gaze of a wild animal, and the sight of the knife I'd already begun to run. The most I managed to do in that moment was hold out my arms to help the two ahead of me move a bit faster and by the time all of us had reached the top, he was out of the tunnel and staring at us. It was a the most pure fight or flight moment I've ever felt and it wasn't a conscious decision on my part to start running.
This is the moment where I still think I could've done more. I'd left my phone at home because the shop was so close and the only way to call the police was to continue on. The guy wasn't chasing any of us in particular and seemed to be moving eratically, making me think he was on something or having an episode. There was another man from the tunnel who'd been walking his dog and we looked at each other before giving the knife wielder more distance.
There was a chance we could have incapacitated him and the reason I still think about that small possibility is because by the time I returned from the shop less than 10 minutes later (after notifying the security and manager to warn people who might be heading in that direction), there was an ambulance and police cars responding to a stabbing (which several bystanders confirmed). I don't know what happened to the victim beyond being taken to hospital, but can't help thinking I and the other guy (if he'd helped) had a better chance than whoever the knife wielder ended up attacking.

2023.05.29 17:36 MyNameIsAMeme Jimmy Butler is a bigger foul merchant than Harden, he's actually the best in the league.

I saw the thread yesterday comparing the FTR(free throw rate) of Harden to Butler and I decided to do some more research on the topic. The results were actually pretty interesting.
Butler since joining Miami has been Top 5 in FTR twice, 6th once, and did not qualify once due to missed games(would’ve placed Top 5). For the most part his FTR is only comparable to players you foul on purpose. Embiid was the only other player with similar usage and FTR.
I decided to compare Miami Butler to 2016-2020(Prime) Harden because most people tend to complain the most about the flopping during that time period. I picked a 4 year span for Harden because Butler has been in Miami for 4 years(2019-2023).
FTA Chart Link
In terms of just attempts at the line Harden clearly has the edge, but that does not really tell the full story. Harden was shooting and handling the ball far more often than Butler. This chart here provides much more context.
FTA + FGA Combo
Harden was shooting a few more free throws a game, but was also attempting far more shots per game. Just from looking at this chart you can tell Jimmy Butler has a far higher FTR.
I saw a lot of people saying “Well Jimmy goes to the rim and Harden just shoots threes,” So I looked into the shooting stats.
% of FGs at Rim
Jimmy did take a higher percentage of shots near the rim, but that doesn't really matter once you do the actual math.
# of FGs at Rim
Harden was actually taking more shots at the rim and it was only really close for one season. So Butler takes fewer shots by a wide margin of 7.5 shots, shoots less at the rim in comparison to Harden, how does he manage to shoot even close to the amount of free throws Harden was getting?
I thought maybe usage could help me understand why Butler was shooting free throws at a higher rate than Harden at his prime but that made me even more confused. Even his USG % isn’t close to Harden.
% of FGs from 3-10 ft
Butler did shoot a lot more often from the intermediate range. Maybe he was just getting fouled quite often in this range.
# of FGs from 3-10 ft
It is clear Butler did shoot from this range more often than Harden. Maybe that range is where he gets the free throws.
Free Throw Rate
Butler manages to destroy Harden when it comes to Free throw rate and Harden has the reputation of being one of the biggest floppers in league history. I don’t think there is a reasonable explanation for Butler having a FTR comparable to guys who get fouled on purpose like Giannis, Gobert, and Plumlee. Unfortunately, I could not find a leaderboard for highest FTR in a season but .693 in the 2019-2020 season is the highest I have seen from a wing player.
Harden has this reputation of being a flopper and being horrible to watch, yet Butler is literally statistically better than Harden at drawing fouls. For his entire Heat career Butler has made 6.85 field goals per game and made 7.2 free throws per game. LeBron has only broken over .5 once in his entire 20 year career.

2023.05.29 17:36 Embarrassed_Ad2113 Whys love a Taboo in Nepal

Went to Sankhamul park to enjoy some peace with my girlfriend. She and I both are well over 18. We were on one corner of the park, away from others just so we wont make them feel uncomfortable and all. There are heaps of sand raised rn maybe for some constructions i guess so people barely come. We sat near the river under a tree but were slightly visible from the nearby road ( around 20 metres away) . She was sitting on my lap and we were enjoying some chips and then as I looked back a police was staring at us. He came to us and asked us where we came from, where we lived and if we were there after college but being very aggressive. As I showed my disinterest to answer his question he got super furious at me. He told us to get up and never come to the park cause its supposed to be a public place and her sitting on my lap was innapropriate as its "dd bahine hajurama haru aaune thau ho". I apologised for not knowing it wasnt allowed and we got up and walked away to go some place else and he was cursing at us saying "ajha barta mukh lagxan kai nabhako kukurharu, gala futne gari diyepaxi thaha pauxau" and it was so unnecessary. Like We obliged and were going someplace else and he was pissed at us cause i denied to give my personal information. I didnt talk back or say anything of any sort thats offensive. Is showing some affection on a public park while staying away from other peoples sight really a bad thing to do. We cant always be going to Resturants and cinemahalls and we too equally deserve to share the public place. We often get filmed when we sit together at parks and other place and get cat called by guys when we hold hands while walking togrther. Why are people so intolerant to a boy and a girl being together. And were we in the wrong here?? Just wanted to hear your opinion on this.

2023.05.29 17:36 Impressive-Mood-7967 I think I’m crushing on my coworker.

Some time ago I(f) got a new coworker. At first we were just civil, but then one day we just clicked. Since that day every time it’s near lunchtime our other coworkers ask when the two of us are going on lunch, since we tend to go together. We make some sexual jokes here and there and also flirt a lot. A couple of nights ago I went over to her house and the neighbourhood had a power outage. We were sitting in-front of a fire and drank some wine, quite romantic. We love touching one another and at some point I ended up on her lap. Not fully though. At some point during the evening she kissed me on my cheek and also the top of my head. Eventually she pulled me closer to her, so that I was fully on her lap. She told me that I smelled really nice and then kissed me in my neck a couple of times. Her hands were kind of all over me and mine all over her. The thing is though, I loved the feeling of her lips on my skin and her hands all over my body. It was the most amazing feeling ever.

2023.05.29 17:36 PennywiseLbro AITA for being mad at my mum for cancelling my shein order that i paid for

i just was scrolling reddit AITA and i saw my mum made a post on this and it made me sound like a little brat. let me just start off by saying the money was not hers to tell me what to spend it on.
basically if u didn’t see my mums story it was basically she didn’t let her daughter buy her online shopping because she didn’t support the business. she also said her daughter lazes around, but that’s not true. i do chores, and i babysit my little sister often, and i don’t get paid for either.
i asked my mum if i can order my shein order and she said no because it she didn’t think i had the money. she mentioned in her story however, that apparently she said it supports child labour. most brands do.
not to butter my own bread, but i am very fortunate to have very generous and rich grandparents. i went around to there house that afternoon, and they asked me how i had been, so i was telling them about how i had a small argument with my mum because i wasn’t allowed to order my shein, and they gave me $250.
i didn’t ask for this but they did it out of pure generosity. i went home and my mum was out, so i asked my dad if i was allowed to place my order, and pay him for it. he said yes so i ordered it. i DO infact have an email so i placed my order under MY email, but i left my phone on the bench, and my mum came home and saw my phone, and she knows my password, so she unlocked my phone and cancelled my order. i was very mad at this considering i had paid for it.
who is in the wrong??

2023.05.29 17:35 headsntales Where to get Chemex filters?

Chemex users, where do you routinely buy your filters?
Most groceries sell v60 and Kalita filters, but I almost never see Chemex filters on display. There's a coffee equipment shop in One Bonifacio Mall (I forgot their store name) in the basement by the escalator that only had one box left, and Starbucks hardly carries a pack anymore. Nothing from Shopee or Lazada or other websites like Yardstick, too. This deters me from buying a 6-cup Chemex although I really want one.
Alternatively, I wouldn't mind cloth filter suggestions. Thank you po in advance!

2023.05.29 17:35 lovelyluna1 How to prevent bedbugs - more specifically, how to clean “outside clothes”?

I’ve recently become extremely anxious and paranoid about getting bedbugs. I don’t really know why because there is no evidence of having them, it’s like something suddenly switched in my brain and now it’s consuming my energy and mind. If I had to guess why, it’s because I work a very public facing job or because the other day I saw a spider in my house and started thinking about other bugs. I’ve also become really scared because I know how much the cost is and I still live with my grandparents in a rather large home, getting exterminated for this size of a place would cost several thousand dollars I presume.
I’ve become so anxious that it’s hard for me to think about leaving the house because maybe I’ll bring bugs back via my clothes or something. Is there anyway to protect against that without having to wash my clothes every single time I wear them? I don’t want to run up the electricity/water bill or ruin my clothing. Someone suggested I just throw my clothes in the dryer on high heat for five minutes when I get home?
I’m also just wondering how to prevent bed bugs in general? I’ve stared working on de-cluttering my room, ordering mattress protectors, adding tape to my bed posts & bookshelves. I’ve heard mixed things about DE - some say it’s too toxic and others say it’s holy grail.
I started thinking about this on Friday and it’s now Monday and I feel like it’s taking over my life- I’ve always had problems with anxiety/control/etc. & small tendencies towards agoraphobia but this coming into my brain is taking it to a whole new level. I’m scared to leave my house, and for others to come in. One of the hardest parts is knowing that, unless I see one (which I don’t want of course), I’ll always wonder. But I also am scared to look too closely everywhere/get a bedbug dog to come in because if there are any signs & we have to move forward with extermination, it would really put me in the hole financially and I know that mentally I would be even more messed up.
I keep crying & my stomach has hurt all weekend, and I’m getting stress hives (which have happened before and go away within a few minutes) that increase my anxiety because I think maybe it’s a bite even though I know logically they aren’t. I’m sorry, I know this sounds so dramatic and I’m going to try to find someone to talk to about this but right now I just want advice that will maybe give me some peace of mind. Thank you! I hope everyone has a good holiday.
