Resale contra case

2023.06.07 05:26 Interesting-Draft895 Resale contra case

Anyone has experience with contra+extension case? Partner and I recently signed (mid April) an agreement for a contra with 3 months extension and was given a 50 days period to submit application. We were agreeable to allow sellers to find their next flat in the 50 days, but sellers took their time, went holiday, and haven’t found their next place. Right now, it’s nearing 50 days and we are submitting the application. However, seller’s agent informed us that HDB may take up to 14 weeks (instead of the initial 8 weeks) to approve the contra because sellers have not found a place, so may “allow” or take another month to approve contra so that sellers have time to find a place. Is this typical?
It seems to me agent is delaying contra submission from his side because seller has not found a place. It’s getting frustrating because the initial stipulated period of getting the place was mid October (which included the 3 months extension) is now stipulated at November. We are worried that agent might try to stretch out the timeline longer for the sellers, and we are left waiting without a clear timeline.
Any advice or insight would be great!

2023.06.07 05:25 Scoobydoo_nz 2023 Tech Melt

InvestorPlace technology expert Luke Lango has held an important live event. Let’s go ahead and view the video:
2023 Tech Melt + Readers questions - 1Hr 15 Mins long (Presentation & Offer for Early Stage Investor)
Our world will exit this decade appearing dramatically different than how we entered it, all because of artificial intelligence (AI).
This technology presents an enormous “before-and-after” paradigm shift that will disrupt/revolutionize nearly every aspect of our day-to-day lives.
From a business perspective, the tidal wave of capital that will flood into AI over the next 10 years will be like nothing our economy has ever seen.
As a result, from an investor perspective, today’s well-placed investments in the AI-leaders of tomorrow will turn into multi-million-dollar windfalls.
Luke’s event focused on helping investors understand the sheer size of this societal change, the enormity of the investment opportunity, and the right action steps to take today.
Here’s Luke:
I truly believe that, thanks to the emergence of artificial intelligence (AI), we face one of the most seminal moments for the economy ever.
And investors who recognize the importance of this moment – and seize the opportunities it presents – will make fortunes over the next few years…
Let me abundantly clear: AI is the biggest technological paradigm shift we’ve ever seen in our lifetimes.

Wrapping your head around what’s coming with AI

Chances are, you’ve used ChatGPT. If so, you know how incredible it is.
But for some mindboggling perspective, remember that this is the worst version of the technology that will ever exist. In a couple of years, today’s version will seem stupid – even inept – compared to the enhanced model we’ll be using.
To understand why, we must grasp the basics of AI.
AI consists of incredibly powerful algorithms that gather, sift, sort, and contextualize data to generate insights, draw conclusions, and make predictions.
If there were no data, then these AI models couldn’t do anything. As such, data is the lifeblood of AI. Or as Luke calls it, the “fuel.”
Here’s Luke with more:
What happens when you give a car 10X more fuel? It drives 10X farther.
What happens when you give an AI model 10X more data? It becomes 10X better.
And over the next few years, AI models will have more than 10X more data than they have access to today.
That’s not an exaggeration. That’s a fact.
In 2020, the total volume of data created worldwide was 47 zettabytes. By 2030, that volume will exceed 600 zettabytes.
That’s a 13X increase – and, by extension, a potential 13X increase in AI capability.
Folks, these AI models are only going to get way better over the next five to 10 years.
You think it’s impressive that law firms are already using AI to write briefs or that hospitals are using AI to diagnose diseases?
We’re just getting started.

Similar to the internet explosion in the 1990s, AI will create a stark divide separating the businesses and investors who benefit from the technology from those who get left behind

One of our biggest weaknesses as investors is that we’re not great at envisioning the future.
Think back to the 1990s…
As you drove to your local Blockbuster to rent a videocassette for the evening, could you have imagined the company going bankrupt because of a technology that would enable you to “stream” a movie straight to your home television, without driving anywhere or renting a physical product of any kind?
As you stood in line at your local Borders Books (remember that one?) to buy the latest James Patterson mystery, could you envision the company being driven out of existence by online book stores and e-readers?
Or what about your family summer road trip? Do you remember using a physical map?
No Millennial will ever understand the particular pain of trying to fold a map with one hand while speeding along some back road, totally lost, all because you missed a turn. As I look back now, spoiled by GPS, a 1990s road-trip seems downright barbaric.
Well, the future that’s coming with AI will bring its own jaw-dropping advancements. As investors, we must do our best to envision this and place our money ahead of these advancements. After all, this time around, it’s not just a wave of new innovation, but a 1,000-foot tsunami.
Back to Luke:
AI will be used to power a whole all sorts of technologies – robotic landscapers, delivery drivers, pilots, waiters, and more.
AI will be used to diagnose, prescribe, and treat patients for all sorts of ailments.
It will trade stocks, create music and movies, write articles, code, concoct new recipes, and make fabulous drinks. It will clean, repair, and restore cars, homes, and just about every object you can think of.
This is an “Everything Revolution.”
AI will permeate every industry of the economy. This revolution will leave no stone unturned. By 2030, every company in every sector of every country will use AI.
If you need convincing of this, just track the money flow.
Luke highlights a brand-new Bloomberg Intelligence research report concluding that just one portion of the AI economy – generative AI – will grow by more than 40% per year, reaching $1.3 trillion by 2032.
And here we are today, at the 1-yard-line, able to align our wealth with this avalanche of growth.

Luke sees investors falling into one of two camps

Here in 2023, it’s been a tale of two markets…
You’ve either been in tech/AI and made big returns, or you’ve been in anything else and more than likely made next-to-nothing or even lost money.
To illustrate, we need look no further than the Nasdaq 100 and the Dow Jones.
The tech-heavy Nasdaq 100 is up 33% while the Dow is up 1%.
Luke sees this as just the beginning. But for every bit as exciting as the enormous return potential of top AI stocks is, the risk of anemic returns from “old economy” stocks is concerning.
Here’s how Luke sizes up this divide:
Invest in the right AI stocks, and you’ll find yourself on the winning side of this massive technological paradigm shift.
Invest in the stocks that artificial intelligence will kill, and you may never recover.
It’s really that simple. And urgency is required because just as AI is already here, this stock market divide is, too.
Luke highlights the same night-and-day difference in 2023 market returns we just noted above, then says that this divide will only become larger in the years to come.

Watch Luke's presentation for all the details of this paradigm shift, as well as how to position your portfolio today

This isn’t the same as the computer… or the internet… or smartphones.
It’s bigger – for both good and bad.
AI will end certain diseases… destroy entire sections of our labor force…transform certain day-to-day tasks that are just normal parts of our lives today…
And for investors who invest in this trend early, it will generate mind-boggling investment wealth.
I’ll give him the final word:
AI is the biggest technological paradigm shift we’ve ever seen in our lifetimes.
Over the next several years, AI will sweep across society and will change everything about everything. For some, this will present a huge opportunity. For others, it will create a huge threat.
I wouldn’t be surprised if, in five years, AI stocks are up 400% or 500% while every other stock is pretty much flat, if not down.

2023.06.07 05:24 JoshAsdvgi THE PARTRIDGE WITCH



Two brothers, having hunted at the head of the Penobscot until their snow-shoes and moccasins gave out, looked at each other ruefully and cried, “Would that there was a woman to help us!”
The younger brother went to the lodge that evening earlier than the elder, in order to prepare the supper, and great was his surprise on entering the wigwam to find the floor swept, a fire built, a pot boiling, and their clothing mended.
Returning to the wood he watched the place from a covert until he saw a graceful girl enter the lodge and take up the tasks of housekeeping.
When he entered she was confused, but he treated her with respect, and allowed her to have her own way so far as possible, so that they became warm friends, sporting together like children when the work of the day was over.
But one evening she said, “Your brother is coming.
I fear him , Farewell.”
And she slipped into the wood.
When the young man told his elder brother what had happened there—the elder having been detained for a few days in the pursuit of a deer—he declared that he would wish the woman to come back, and presently, without any summons, she returned, bringing a toboggan-load of garments and arms.
The luck of the hunters improved, and they remained happily together until spring, when it was time to return with their furs.
They set off down the Penobscot in their canoe and rowed merrily along, but as they neared the home village the girl became uneasy, and presently “threw out her soul”—became clairvoyant—and said, “Let me land here.
I find that your father would not like me, so do not speak to him about me.”
But the elder brother told of her when they reached home, whereon the father exclaimed, “I had feared this.
That woman is a sister of the goblins.
She wishes to destroy men.”
At this the elder brother was afraid, lest she should cast a spell on him, and rowing up the river for a distance he came upon her as she was bathing and shot at her.
The arrow seemed to strike, for there was a flutter of feathers and the woman flew away as a partridge.
But the younger did not forget the good she had done and sought her in the wood, where for many days they played together as of old.
“I do not blame your father: it is an affair of old, this hate he bears me,” she said.
“He will choose a wife for you soon, but do not marry her, else all will come to an end for you.”
The man could not wed the witch, and he might not disobey his father, in spite of this adjuration; so when the old man said to him, “I have a wife for you, my son,” he answered,
“It is well.”
They brought the bride to the village, and for four days the wedding-dance was held, with a feast that lasted four days more.
Then said the young man, “Now comes the end,” and lying down on a bear-skin he sighed a few times and his spirit ascended to the Ghosts' road—the milky way.
The father shook his head, for he knew that this was the witch's work, and, liking the place no longer, he went away and the tribe was scattered.

2023.06.07 05:22 l1mitl3ss_ looking for 1/2 FEMALE roommates for 23-24 schoolyear!

Hi guys!! I will be a senior this year studying accounting. I’m looking for 1 or 2 female roommates to lease/sublease a 2B/2B or 3B/3B with for the school year. Would even be open to a 4B/4B.
Roommate wise: looking for people who can maintain a clean common space and keep it relatively quiet during the weekdays (go crazy on weekends! I don’t care). I’m super clean, I will always do my dishes and make the kitchen spotless after using it and I usually vacuum every weekend.
Apartment wise: There must be a parking spot, in unit laundry, and have our own bathrooms. I’m looking for something safe/modern and on campus (near green st/quad). Budget is around $900-$1000 max with utilities/parking.
I’m easy going and studious, but I also love to have a good time. Ideally I would like to become good friends with my roommates but we can also just coexist :)) I am always down to go out, study together, or have cooking nights!!
Message me if you are interested!!

2023.06.07 05:22 piscesprincess444 My bf’s mom

My bf & I (24f, 26m) have been together for 8 months now, and things between the two us have been really good so far. However, I’m starting not to like his mom. I went into this with the utmost respect for both of his parents but after getting to know his mom, I just feel like her behavior is really weird. His mom lives in a different state than we do, but she’s here visiting my bf for a week (his dad is a very nice man btw, I really like him!). We went & had brunch and dinner with them Sunday, and during that time she made a number of comments that rubbed me the wrong way.
Comment 1: My bf and I have two separate apartments in the same complex because we didn’t want to move in together too soon. His mom insinuated during dinner that he spends too much time with me & at my place in general, and that he should spend some time alone at his own place. I didn’t have much of an issue with this because I agree, but I did have an issue with the accusatory subtext of the conversation. I feel like she was trying to say I was forcing him to be here at my place when that couldn’t be further from the truth. He chooses to spend the majority of his time here, I definitely don’t force that on him.
Comment #2: She said (basically verbatim) that she thinks he takes me out too much to restaurants, and that we should develop some kind of 50/50 rule moving forward so that he pays the tab sometimes & I pay the tab others. I have no issue with this, but it’s 9 times out of 10 my bf’s choice to eat at restaurants. I’m used to cooking & I usually do that 6 days out of the week. She even said that any woman who cares about their significant other will also care about their finances. What she said wouldn’t have rubbed me the wrong way if we didn’t already have an agreement with taking turns paying for food, and more importantly if it’s my idea to get food I know it’s my responsibility to pay. I didn’t really like that she had it in her mind that I’m a burden on him financially when I’m not. I’ve been taking care of myself since before her son came along just fine. I also had an issue with him not correcting her in the moment, which I voiced to my bf.
Comment #3: As we were leaving dinner, his mom also mentioned how she had paid for all of us at brunch & dinner and spent nearly $300. The way I was raised, it’s considered tacky to bring up money. I feel like if she had a problem paying she could’ve voiced that at the moment. I might not be explaining it well, but I felt like it was really passive aggressive to bring up the exact amount. Due to this, I already told my bf that the remainder of the time his parents are here I won’t allow them to spend another penny on me, because I don’t want anything thrown back in my face later.
Comment #4: On the way home, I pointed out some apartments that me & my bf were considering moving into together once our current leases are up. Seconds after I said this, I heard her sigh really dramatically & say to her husband, “Pray for me.” I thought this was probably the weirdest of her comments and it really made me wish I hadn’t said anything at all about our future plans. Later that night my bf mentioned to her that I was upset by her reaction & she said she just wasn’t prepared to hear that in the moment, which is totally understandable but still a rude reaction in my opinion.
I should probably also mention that when me & my bf first started dating, I overheard her refer to me as “that girl”, to which my bf did correct her which I appreciated. I think I knew then that I wasn’t dealing with an average mom. She has also made it a point to mention on multiple occasions that she “doesn’t get involved with her son’s gfs”, which made me feel uneasy.
I’m sorry this turned out to be super long. I guess I just need advice to see if I’m being overly sensitive? Or is this an issue that will continue looming on? I’m not sure how to move forward with my bf knowing I have this problem with his mom.

2023.06.07 05:22 moldymilkshoe coming off a manic episode and med changes

I'm (f21) on 8mg abilify, 50mg pristiq, and recently 25mg seroquel. It's also worth noting I'm on Yamin birth control as well.
i recently underwent a massive series of life changes. i started a new job may 1, my partner (m25) of 3 years and i broke up a month ago tomorrow, and i moved out of the apartment we shared for a year with a roommate (f22) on may 28th.
I now live with a brand new person who i consider to be my closest friend right now. i may be transferring schools as i live near a different university in our city now.
needless to say this triggered a manic episode while moving that I'm now crashing from. I'm missing work. I'm vaping more than ever.
I'm between psychiatrists right now. my old psych retired a few months ago without telling me after discharging me a year prior. i only found out because my prescription got canceled. I'm now working with my family doctor to come up with a treatment plan. I hadn't been sleeping well, hence the seroquel prescription.
my question is whether anyone notices a difference between brand name and generic with any of these medications, but specifically abilify as generic was given to me in place of brand name around the middle of the month when i picked up my prescriptions.
I'm also wondering whether the seroquel is the best choice. I've been having terrible side effects such as blurred vision, confusion, dizziness, and feeling faint.
any guidance or help would be appreciated. i be goin thru it
tldr: advice on massive life changes and med changes simultaneously

2023.06.07 05:22 Extreme_Manager_5697 Switching from 100% Freelancing to FT work after 8 years

I'm not even sure what flair to assign this one ... maybe just putting this one out there for some solidarity and reassurance. The long and the short is -- I'm leaving my super flexible job as a freelancer to head back to FT work on Monday for the first time in 8 years. I have two kiddos and my youngest is starting Kindergarten this fall -- ergo I got both kids out of the house full time in September for the first time in 8 years.
I've been a freelancer for years -- (I teach business English online and do misc admin work) but things got scary with my hubby's company -- they got bought out and a consulting company came in (yes -- cue imagines of 'Office Space' in your head!). I saw the writing on the wall last December -- at least that some major downsizing might happen soon. What was always a sure thing with his job suddenly seemed more like a fragile thing and I simply couldn't deal with the risk of being without healthcare or losing a huge amount of income...just didn't feel responsible with our kiddos or some of the bills we currently have. The decision is incredibly bittersweet because the contractor I worked for was,to say the very least, phenomenal. Best place I've ever worked -- they all have been so supportive because they all get it too! The pay was a nice little buffer to the 'household budget' for years but with inflation/cost of things really wasn't sufficient anymore. Years of no vacation, constant cancellations to deal with sick babies...etc. -- just gets old and exhausting when you're the only one handling it. (To be clear - I handled it because I had the lower pay and most flexibility...)
Fast forward through a turbulent 5 months -- I did get a job. It took forever and was way more challenging than I anticipated, but I did it and I start on Monday! It's a government job and above all the benefits are solid (I can't get much better than NO benefits...but they really are quite good!) The job security is solid... and provides a nice balance to hubby's iffy position/company situation. (And of course, as all of this was happening 5 people did let go in his department -- luckily not him!) Above all, it's hybrid. After I get trained up, I'll be 2 days in office and 3 at home.
The only thing that gives me pause is the same thing that gives me pause every time I take on a big commitment like this-- the what ifs of childcare. My husband and I have literally been making childcare work since March 2020 when the pandemic started. My husband went 100% remote...until all of a sudden last month (you know, the month I finally got an interview after 4 months of applying) they suddenly want him in the office so much more. And they are threatening to track their logins... something they doubled down on recently.
The pandemic obliterated the daycare situation near me -- wait lists/no availability -- you name it. Summer programs last minute? Forget it. Grandma doesn't like to be 'on call' during the summer for regular babysitting (which is fine -- I respect that!) but I literally have a list of neighbors/friends to have on call at a short notice. I'm VERY thankful for the village that I do have -- don't get me wrong. I know so many moms who have less resources than I do.
But it is so terrifying to make this leap. I'm at the point where I HOPE we can toggle -- that my hubby can handle the kids when I'm in office and he can go in on the days I work from home. I'm VERY used to working with my children (again, pandemic hardened...LOL) and they are MOSTLY okay -- but of course this is a brand new job with a lot to learn so I have no idea how that will be in the beginning so I have to be cautious.
Phew -- if you made it that far, thanks for coming to my TED talk. Overall, I'm very excited but working FT for the first time ever with two kids after being freelance by choice for years to accommodate's big. I also strongly suspect hubby underestimates how different it's gonna be -- but hey -- one challenge at a time :D I'm hopeful it will be a great experience.

Mixed TerrieChihuahua mix 9 Y/O Female Overall healthy, no other health issues
About five weeks ago, I found a little ball near my dogs anus on her right side so we had a vet appointment today and the vet said that she couldn't express the anal gland herself so that this would be the next best route. To my knowledge it hasn't abscessed or burst but it is blocked up. I started her on antibiotics and anti-inflammatories today and she will have the procedure done on Thursday under simple sedation. They also said she will have a little tube sitting out for a couple of days to drain but they are closed on Saturday and Sunday so I'm not sure when they will take it out. I hate putting my dog under just for any circumstance it gives me so much anxiety and she also has a full dental procedure next month in July so I'm worried about putting her under too much. I do obviously want the best for my pup though so I can stomach this if I have to. Is this the only way to make that go away?

2023.06.07 05:21 dkgraf Does anyone work out with your dog at the park?

I used to have a routine of running to a park near me and doing a short workout session - nothing crazy just some pushups, pullups, tricep dips, squats etc, and then running home. I've been thinking about starting this routine back up and bringing my dog along, since she's been starting to run with me. She loves that park - I could bring a ball or frisbee to toss once we get there, and there's a water fountain with a dog bowl there too!
I'm trying to figure out how to approach the actual working out part. My pup is not one to just be happy sniffing around and chilling while hooked up to a short lead nearby - she definitely needs clear expectations set. So I'm thinking we could have fun with it and both get a workout from it!
I'm thinking as a beginner exercise, I can work on sit/down stays with her while I do a set, and then I could have her run to grab a treat or do a trick in between before I ask her to do another stay.
If we come up with a good rhythm and build up our skills, it could be fun to teach her to do some pushups in sync with me (like sit to down back up to sit?) !
Does anyone have any experience working out with their dog? Do you have any routines or tricks or skills that have been engaging and fun for your dog? Anything cool you are working on learning together?

2023.06.07 05:20 TheKamikazejd [PAID][LONGTERM] Looking for artist/collaborator to help launch manga/manwha project

Hey there,
I'm JD and I am looking for an experienced and reliable artist to help with the creation of this project.
The project is a slice of life comedy about the existential dread of adulthood, surviving a toxic workplace and finding joy in the simple and the mundane. The story takes place in a metropolitan area and is set in the present or the very, very near future.
Key concepts that will be explored are mental wellness, stigmas and the Japanese concept of "honne and tatemae."
The project is in the "early-ish" stages of development, which I hope makes it feel more attractive, as well. Drafts of the first 5 chapters are finished and main characters are being established, but there is definitely room for more within this world. I lack any artistic skills, so designs of all characters and locations will be needed. I am open to feedback and ideas, as needed.
In terms of specifics, I am looking for:
someone that has experience drawing manga/manwha styled characters.
Someone experienced and interested in the comedy genre.
Someone reliable and interested in working together on a long-term project.
If I've piqued your interest and you hit some of the specifics I am looking for, or if you have any questions or need clarification, please reply to this with your portfolio and experience and/or shoot me a message through email:
[email protected]
Hope to chat with you soon!

2023.06.07 05:15 ZmoullyComplains I See an Old Friend Every Day, But We Don't Talk

(This has been on my mind for ages now; I need to get it out of my system.)
Okay, you're probably wondering why. Now, to give context, I met this friend during covid last year, doing virtual school. She sent out an email to me and we connected together after we shared our socials. Because of my parents, I was unable to go and see any of my friends for around 2 years, so this was a great thing - making new friends (which is pretty hard in virtual school), and I was pretty happy with her company. We would play games after school, virtually bake various things such as cookies at her house or cake at mine, mess around carelessly and do what I had been missing and more with her company. Now, it was going so well that because of my luck, I knew that I would flunk it, and the friendship wouldn't last. And, on a moment's notice, my one friend from virtual school left to go back inperson. This made me very sad (though that is an understatement). I was a good student, but ever since her absence, I was ignoring my assignments and not wanting to go to school. I filled my room with chip bags and other wrappers. I even started watching videos during class all day instead of doing work. I didn't care anymore, but I should have, and I regret it. Yes, during this time she did reach out to me, but since I was doing so poorly in school my parents took my phone and other ways of contact, so I couldn't reach her. This probably made her think I was ghosting her. That makes me feel as if I was the reason we stopped talking to each other. So, I held all the guilt, and I still do.
(I also went to Summer School (inperson). There I met a very nerdy new friend who was pretty nice.)
Then, the next year came. My parents finally put me back to inperson school, and I was meeting all of my friends again. I was sitting at their table and talking with them whenever we had the chance. It was all I had ever wanted, though I still felt self-conscious about myself. Suddenly, I realized the interactions weren't as frequent, nor impactful as I had made them out to be. In fact, they were mere fragments of small talk. This was because I lacked the social skills required to meet up with the standards of my peers. And with big shoes to fill, I felt miserable once more. Then, one day when I was talking to my best friend from before, she brought up a familiar name, one that I had not heard in what seemed like years: the virtual friend's name! I was very hyper inside when I heard that, but then also scared. What would she think of me? Then, nearly the next day she was at our table. Paging through her book, she sat there. She probably hadn't noticed me. I played it off as I hadn't noticed her. It's been around 4 months now. I reconnected with my friend from Summer School, and we started to talk. Coincidently, he was also friends with my virtual friend. Then, one day (today), he asked me about her. He first asked about if I knew her. Then, he said that she was talking about me (in a good way). I told him about all of this (though he didn't want to hear it), and he did nothing. So, I've been thinking about this all day, and I am confused.
Should I go and talk to her again? Maybe ask for her updated socials? Maybe check in? I'm not sure.
TL;DR: I met a friend during virtual and now that friend is a friend of my friend and sits at our table. I then was notified that she probably also misses me, but I'm too scared to confront her about it. What should I do?

2023.06.07 05:15 AstaLizVista You don't embrace something you're drowning in

I honestly have no idea what your deal is anymore. Something has changed in you or maybe me. We're not what we used to be anymore though. You were always so good to me and you made me feel complete. I've never been more broken than now, and it's because of you somehow. For four years my best friend has taunted me with the fact that she stole my baby to molest, dated every single person important to me while leaving me to linger in her unexplained death, and left me without the one thing I ever asked for. I don't get it because these aren't just stories. You magic, invisible hand truly fucked up everything I hold near and dear. I won't have the lake this summer, or ever again maybe. I don't have a brother anymore and maybe a dad. I lost my oldest friend and she's taking my kids for no reason. No one can talk about anything, so it'll never get better. It's like some kind virus infected the earth and you just happened to be patient zero. Now this evil thing has spread it's destruction over everything beautiful and there is only ugly anymore. I never got an answer about your death and honestly it's more likely you're dead than alive at this point. If this was your sister or caleb fucking with me I think you'd have stuck up for me. I think you'd have listened to me, and not just thrown me in the psych ward. It's been so long since we were friends that I don't know anymore. Maybe you're an abusive asshole now. I don't see a single reason you couldn't say goodbye. Anything but an unexplained death and a world that has conspired to keep me from getting any closure. I'm not drawing a line in the sand or anything. I'm just done myself, and you didn't even try to start with. You just threw me away Liz. That's so not cool and it makes all our memories and time worthless. I don't know how I'll ever forgive it at this point and I'm just out of hope. It makes no sense. How many friends do you have with a love true enough to share yourself with? I was so excited to hear your stories of might and magic. Like how the fuck did you build this beautiful thing? It's amazing and just like you. For every secret you reveal you keep 10 and I could have spent my entire life reading you as a friend. I'm not nearly as interesting, but you could at least rest easy knowing I'd never stab you in the back. Why waste that, you know? I worry about you so damn much. You built this beautiful thing, but you're having to destroy it because of me. It feels like it's because of all the hate and hurt you put out on this wire. I wish you would have just talked to me, instead of destroying something beautiful to conceal something ugly. Friends say sorry when they fuck up, and I'm your friend. I wanted to forgive whatever this wall is, so I'd never need to wander without you again. It ain't all bad. You showed me things I'm thankful for still. Our relationship will always be special to me and I'm certain I'll never connect to you or anyone else again like we did back then. It's a polaroid pulled too early and forever overexposed anymore. I don't think we could ever recapture that magic, but that's alright. It's worth loving for it was, and so are you. I'll always hate not knowing why it died before it's time though. I see you say shit like "I'm a 1000% gay", and it's not accurate at all. There's a reason I was crippled when you left and haven't found myself yet. You gathered so much information about me out of context. It feels like you forgot who I am and there'll always be a panic in my chest saying I lost the one that loved me best, by mistake. I was a good friend and deserved a single conversation so I might understand what this wall was. I've always felt it was a mistake, and now it feels like it'll always just be me and this feeling forever trying to forget how that feels. I love you true anyway, so I could have oppressed the pain if you had just confessed there was another you loved best. I'd have swallowed anything if it meant you didn't have to die. Now it's just all shit and I can't say why. Only that it's time for the true goodbye. I'll always love you and be here for you though. Take care of yourself so you stay as beautiful as I remember you being. I'll shake this off and do the safe eventually. If I don't get courtney to give me back the kids in six months I'm fucking turning japanese. A mansion on the hill for free, amongst the best pow on the planet, and none of the assholes that brought me down

2023.06.07 05:15 DankWoods69 My current life feels like it’s ending

Just moved to a new city with my girlfriend this year, took me a minute to find a new job but I did eventually and things were going good
Gf dropped the bomb that she doesn’t feel independent in our relationship and that she feels that she wants to be alone even tho she still really loves me. I had my whole life planned on making her happy and had a ring picked out to ask her to marry me this year
Work got slow and I’m making half the money I was when I first started there, applying for new jobs and getting no where. Very low on funds now
Our shared dog had two infections and had to spend 900 to fix everything at the vet
Check engine light came on my car and it’s running terrible out of no where. Let alone today the tire nearly exploded on me and I was forced to buy a new one, and I owe more on the rolling turd than it is worth at the moment.
My credit is okay but I owe more than ever to credit card companies.
One of my family dogs passed away yesterday
In short the love of my life is leaving me, my job sucks, my car is shitting the bed, I’m going broke, can barely afford bills and my family dog just died and I feel like my life is ending I don’t know what to do

2023.06.07 05:13 PlobGnarTheGnarShnar Got fired after coming back from being on work leave from doctor.

For full context- I worked at Dave and Busters up till today, and I have injury on my left foot that I needed to get a brace and boot for before I could return to work.
I sent the doctors notes immediately as I received them, I had two sent to them- Thurs last week and Fri the previous week. I was scheduled to work the Thursday of the previous week and all days from Mon-Fri of the week after.
My doctors note excused me for all of that, and I communicated all of the information with the store and with my manager. I come in today, as I was scheduled, and I'm told I'm being fired for no call no showing for Thursday before I sent the note in Friday, and Wed, the day before I sent them the next note. And I was told I didn't communicate at all with the store. This is in many ways incorrect.
Now, I could have sent the notes quicker to them, but they don't have a fax machine, and I don't have a vehicle rn, so I couldn't pick up the note across town (30min drive), and they knew that, and knew I would have to send it when I received it via the online portal. I sent the notes as soon as I could and kept my boss updated along the process. I called the store all throughout this process, on 4 separate occasions. The first date they say I didn't call out, I did call, and didn't receive an answer so I contacted my boss directly.
All of this is on my phone proving it to my employer. Do I have a legal case here? I feel I may have been illegally fired. Should I get a consultation and present this information? 🤔 That's what I'm trying to figure out. I can supply any more information if needed!!! I was not paid out for anything either and I worked there for almost near 2 years at this point.

2023.06.07 05:13 ls546 Los Angeles County area dog sports?

Hi - I'm brand new to dog sports but I think my dog (4 y/o Australian Cattle Dog) would get a lot out of it.
We went tonight on about a 40 mile trip to Ventura County to a dog sports facility and she tried Barn Hunt for the first time and did great, and I think really enjoyed herself. I'm hoping to find a facility that does dog sports closer to me (I live in LA proper, near Glendale) so I don't have to drive 80 miles each time we do it.
TLDR: Anyone in the LA area (or Burbank, Pasadena, Altadena, South LA, even Arcadia) know of a local facility? I am having zero luck on Google/Yelp.

2023.06.07 05:13 Successful-Safety388 Should I break up with her?

Me and my girlfriend have been together for six months and love her so much, unfortunately we've sort of been drifting apart from each other. She has atleast six partners since we started dating but she doesn't communicate at all. I've been questioning our relationship for a while now from the amount of communication from her side. When we first started dating she had two other partners and me, then she broke up with one of them and it was just the two of us then. Recently she's been in a lot more partners (more than can count) and have a feeling she doesn't appreciate me anymore. We used to go into a lot of discord calls together with her other partners just for fun and to hang out but she's always saying how she is never appreciated and lonely when I'm listening in. I'm in the call when she's saying it and she knows I'm there. don't want to hold her back from meeting people but feel so uncomfortable when she says that and continuously flirts with everyone in her server. I've been drifting away on purpose because can't be near someone who probably doesnt even consider us together anymore. What should do?
