2020.09.25 08:05 Rajshaun1 How come every guy I meet plays games?

I recently met a guy off Grindr we hung out almost everyday had sex for two weeks straight then he pulls away and blocks my number. If I message him on Grindr he’ll respond and claim he’s busy and tired, he then makes up a lie claiming I stalked him, then he says our personalities don’t mesh well and that I’m a cute guy and that we can be friends and still hangout and fuck even tho that’s what we were doing lol.Yesterday he unblocked me and texted me on my phone making plans, then radio silence nothing. I gave him the middle finger a day later he texts me on Grindr saying he had to do his sisters hair. Every guy I meet is consistent and interested at first then they start these games am I crazy is it me? Met a guy at work who seemed very interested then gave me a fake phone number but tried to keep talking to me at work like nothing happened.My pictures in my profile is it looks? I forgot to add last time we hung out he seemed annoyed that I didn’t wanna fuck him raw he’s hiv positive, when I brought this up to him that’s when he unblocked me them said that’s not reason, he then replied back we don’t have to fuck raw I said ok good, that’s when he went ghost again.

2020.09.24 21:56 CuckMeWithFacts Can anyone verify or reject this?

Everybody works for somebody; we all know who Donald works for now. There is no benefit for him in this behavior because it doesn’t help his base or his donors, so he must owe Putin big time for something else. He’s been funded by Russian money since 1984:
Trump was over a billion in debt and the Russians bailed him out.
► Trump was first compromised by the Russians in the 80s. In 1984, the Russian Mafia began to use Trump real estate to launder money. In 1987, the Soviet ambassador to the United Nations, Yuri Dubinin, arranged for Trump and his then-wife, Ivana, to enjoy an all-expense-paid trip to Moscow to consider possible business prospects. Only seven weeks after his trip, Trump ran full-page ads in the Boston Globe, the NYT and WaPO calling for, in effect, the dismantling of the postwar Western foreign policy alliance. The whole Trump/Russian connection started out as laundering money for the Russian mob through Trump's real estate, but evolved into something far bigger.
► In 1984, David Bogatin — a convicted Russian mobster and close ally of Semion Mogilevich, a major Russian mob boss — met with Trump in Trump Tower right after it opened. Bogatin bought five condos from Trump at that meeting. Those condos were later seized by the government, which claimed they were used to launder money for the Russian mob. (NY Times, Apr 30, 1992)
► Felix Sater is a Russian-born former mobster, and former managing director of NY real estate conglomerate Bayrock Group LLC located on the 24th floor of Trump Tower. He is a convict who became a govt cooperator for the FBI and other agencies. He grew up with Michael Cohen--Trump's former "fixer" attorney. Cohen's family owned El Caribe, which was a mob hangout for the Russian Mafia in Brooklyn. Cohen had ties to Ukrainian oligarchs through his in-laws and his brother's in-laws. Felix Sater's father had ties to the Russian mob. This goes back more than 30 years.
► Trump was $4 billion in debt after his Atlantic City casinos went bankrupt. No U.S. bank would touch him. Then foreign money began flowing in through Bayrock (mentioned above). Bayrock was run by two investors: Tevfik Arif, a Kazakhstan-born former Soviet official who drew on bottomless sources of money from the former Soviet republic; and Felix Sater, a Russian-born businessman who had pleaded guilty in the 1990s to a huge stock-fraud scheme involving the Russian mafia. Bayrock partnered with Trump in 2005 and poured money into the Trump organization under the legal guise of licensing his name and property management.
► In July 2008, the height of the housing bust, Trump sold a mansion in Palm Beach for $95 million to Dmitry Rybolovlev, a Russian oligarch. Trump had purchased it four years earlier for $41.35 million. The sale price was nearly $54 million more than Trump had paid for the property. Again, this was the height of the recession when all other property had plummeted in value.
► Semion Mogilevich was the brains behind the Russian Mafia. Mogilevich operatives have been using Trump real estate for decades to launder money. That means Russian Mafia operatives have been part of his fortune for years. Many of them owned condos in Trump Towers and other properties. They were running operations out of Trump's crown jewel.
► From Craig Unger's AMA: "Early on, a source told me that all this was tied to Semion Mogilevich, the powerful Russian mobster. I had never even heard of him, but I immediately went to a database that listed the owners of all properties in NY state and looked up all the Trump properties. Every time I found a Russian sounding name, I would Google, and add Mogilevich. When you do investigative reporting, you anticipate drilling a number of dry holes, but almost everyone I googled turned out to be a Russian mobster. Again and again. If you know New York you don't expect Trump Tower to be a high crime neighborhood, but there were far too many Russian mobsters in Trump properties for it to be a coincidence."
► So many Russians bought Trump apartments at his developments in Florida that the area became known as Little Moscow. The developers of two of his hotels were Russians with significant links to the Russian mob. The late leader of that mob in the United States, Vyacheslav Kirillovich Ivankov, was living at Trump Tower
► According to a Bloomberg investigation (3/16/2017) into Trump World Tower, “a third of units sold on floors 76 through 83 by 2004 involved people or limited liability companies connected to Russia and neighboring states.”
► In 2013, Federal agents busted an “ultraexclusive, high-stakes, illegal poker ring” run by Russian gangsters out of Trump Tower. They operated card games, illegal gambling websites, and a global sports book and laundered more than $100 million. A condo directly below one owned by Trump reportedly served as HQ for a “sophisticated money-laundering scheme” connected to Semion Mogilevich.
► The Russia Mafia is part and parcel of Russian intelligence. Russia is a mafia state. that is not a metaphor. Putin is head of the Mafia. So the fact that they have been operating out of the home of the president of the United States is deeply disturbing.
► Rudy Giuliani famously prosecuted the Italian mob while he was a federal prosecutor, yet the Russian mob was allowed to thrive. Now he's deeply entwined in the business of Trump and Russian oligarchs. Giuiani appointed Semyon Kislin to the NYC Economic Development Council in 1990, and the FBI described Kislin as having ties tot he Russian mob. Of course, it made good political sense for Giuliani to get headlines for smashing the Italian mob.
► A lot of Republicans in Washington are implicated. Boatloads of Russian money went to the GOP--often in legal ways. The NRA got as much as $70M from Russia, then funneled it to the GOP. The Republican Senatorial Campaign Committee lead by McConnel got millions from Leonard Blavatnik. In the 90s, the Russians began sending money to top GOP leaders, like Speaker of the House Tom Delay. Unger's book alleges that most of the GOP leadership has been compromised by RU money.
► At the Cityscape USA’s Bridging US and the Emerging Real Estate Markets Conference held in Manhattan, on September 9, 10, and 11, 2008, Trump Jr. was frank about the tide of Russian money supporting the family business, saying "...And in terms of high-end product influx into the US, Russians make up a pretty disproportionate cross-section of a lot of our assets."
► Eric Trump told golf reporter James Dodson in 2014 that the Trump Organization was able to expand during the financial crisis because “We don’t rely on American banks. We have all the funding we need out of Russia.”
► Russian oligarchs co-signed Trump’s Deutsche bank loans.
Trump now gleefully takes cues from Putin:
► At the end of 2018, Putin and his allies started making a strong push for a resolution that would justify their country’s 1979 invasion of Afghanistan and reverse an 1989 vote backed by Mikhail Gorbachev that condemned it. The Putinists’ goal was to pass the resolution by Feb. There is no one on this side of the Atlantic who thinks the USSR was justified in invading Afghanistan. And out of nowhere, on January 2nd, Trump came out strongly supporting Russia's 1979 invasion of Afghanistan.
► Trump went against American intelligence on North Korean missiles. He told the FBI he didn't believe their intelligence because Putin told him otherwise. "I don't care, I believe Putin"
► Trump met in secret with Putin the G20 summit in November 2018, without note takers. 19 days later, he announced a withdrawal from Syria. As a note, Trump conducted FIVE completely private meetings and conferences with Putin, and has gone to great lengths to prevent literally anyone, even people in his administration, from learning what was discussed.
► Trump refused to enforce sanctions legally codified into law - and in some cases reversed standing sanctions on Russian companies.
► He has denounced his own intelligence agencies in a press conference with Putin on election meddling - and publicly endorsed Putin's version of events.
► Trump pulled out of the INF treaty with no explanation, which allows Putin to create long-range hypersonic missiles that threaten Europe with impunity. The US already has all the weaponry that the INF would ban the development of, so this offers us literally nothing, while allowing Russia to develop powerful new weapons to challenge our allies.
► Demanded Russia get invited back into G7
► Pushed the CIA to give American intelligence to the Kremlin.
► Withdrew from the Open Skies treaty
► Received intelligence in 2019 that Russia was paying bounties for dead American soldiers, and hasn't done anything about it by the time of this writing.
► Announced troop withdrawal from Germany (America's missile defense from Russia and forward operating base against Russian aggression)
► And of course, Trump continues to threaten to pull out of NATO, a move so catastrophically stupid, so inconceivably cosmically myopic, I truly can't express the profundity of the idiocy. Suffice to say, pulling out of NATO would be like the only guy in a prison yard with a shotgun just throwing it over the fence for absolutely no reason, suddenly giving the people with crude homemade shivs complete power.

2020.09.24 21:26 Pinkrose571 My little brother apologize to me

I am 23 (f), was talking to my brother last week and he happen to bring up my ex-boyfriend then apologized to me for the way he acted while we were together.
I've been out of a narcissist relationship with my first boyfriend for 4 years now. He was my first boyfriend we were together for 6 years and we were friends since I was 11.
When we were together I was young naïve with low self-esteem and he took advantage of that. He drove me away from my friends, isolated me and blamed me for the problems in his life and when ever i would stand up for myself or set boundaries with him. He would get angry use the silent treatment with me.
I use to feel like everything was my fault and I was wrong, this made me apologize to him. What made it worse was that he use to drag my little brother into it and because they were friends he would take his side over mine and would say I was the crazy one and I was the bad girlfriend.
To give a couple of examples:
Me and my ex got into an argument over his weird behavior with my friends. When I would introduce him to them he would go behind my back and add them on Facebook or Skype and act overly friendly with them. I thought this was weird because he would only meet them once and then act like they were friends. He claimed to be best friends with my best friend but when I would ask my besty about it he claimed that he didn't know what he was talking about and that he doesn't talk to him outside of me being there. One of my friends told me about him doing this, he added her right after I introduce them for only 5 minutes and started messaging her, telling her to not tell me anything, it really creep her out to the point where she told me about this and blocked him.
Upon confronted him about the situation he made it seem like I was overreacting and being crazy possessive of my friends. When I heard that, I told him that I just think it weird how you just met her you don't know the girl and you are finding her on Skype and instagram trying to be friends with her and on top of that you are telling her not to tell me?. The argument got heated because he admitted to doing this to all my friends and then he left and told my little brother about it and my brother confronted me and called me crazy. My ex wouldn't talk to me about days afterwards and hangout with just my little brother.
Another instance of this is when he would start fights with me in front of people for no reason. I could say something he didn't like and he started yelling at me out of nowhere calling me names. I understand I have no filter at time and I like to joke around a lot. He known that from the beginning upon meeting me and when were alone he seem fine with it . I was confused as to why he wouldn't do this when we were alone. He only would do this when we were around other people.
So I would take him to the side and explain to him that if he had a problem with something I said, take me to the side and tell me. I don't like fighting in public and I don't want people in our business. He would agree with me but did it 3 more times and it got to the point where I didn't want to hangout with him anymore around other people, So I didn't. This ended up in an argument in which he drag my brother into it and my brother took his side and said that I was being a b*tch and was crazy.
Grant it he was 13 or 14 at the time but it still hurt because it felt like I was alone and no one supported me.
Then the big fight happen when I found out he was lying to me for 6 years and I yelled at him , I said things I shouldn't have said and blocked him on everything. When my brother found out he got upset with me and I tried to explain myself but he would not listen.
When I warned him to stay away from my ex and that he was a liar and a manipulator, he wouldn't hear any of it and kept talking to him. He wouldn't speak to me for months and ignored me whenever possible.
Fast forward to last week we were talking and he happens to bring up my ex and I asked him if he was still talking to him and to my surprise he told me no. He then starts apologizing to me saying that I was right and he should have listened to me ,grant it he was a kid back then, I was still his sister and he said that he should have stood up for me more.
Looking back he realized that my ex was a liar and manipulator . This was after they got into a huge fight where my brother called him out on his bad behavior, words were exchange and they aren't friends anymore.
I forgave my brother because it meant a lot that he apologize to me and at the end of the day he my brother and he is family no matter what.

2020.09.24 02:35 AllentheNomad A short self biography of sorts.

I had a really lonely childhood. I lived in the middle of the country, went to a tiny country of 20 kids until 5th grade where no one really liked me much. I never had other kids around to play with. I had a single mom who worked a lot. I saw my dad only 2 or 3 times a year. I spent most of my childhood playing video games, watching TV, or playing imaginary games by myself. I didn't really have any friends at all until high school, I feel like I was mostly just alone for most of my childhood and I didn't get the chance to practice social skills the way most people do.
The little country school closed down and I started middle school at the larger school in town. I remember being excited that it was kind of like a fresh start, that I was going to be a new me for the new school. But most of my class had already known each other for the most part from elementary school, so I was still an outsider. A couple kids started calling me a nerd because I would raise my hand a lot, turn things in quickly and still score well. I thought it was a compliment at first, I thought I was just being recognized for being smart, so I embraced and called myself that for a little while before I realized they were using it to insult me, but the label had been cast. I was also still just immature and obnoxious, I know I got diagnosed with ADD or ADHD at some point. Half the time I opened my mouth I would say something cringy or stupid, and in 8th grade I just started forcing myself not to talk unless I was completely sure whatever I wanted to say was appropriate. So within about a year I went from being mostly obnoxious to mostly quiet and reserved.
I begged my mom for us to move into town after 8th grade. I saw all these kids who would go to each other's houses after school or go to the park and hangout, but I had to take the bus home to the middle of nowhere with no one nearby. She actually did, and I did start getting a couple friends in high school. I had a pretty good group that would hang out almost every day. We would play video games and procrastinate on homework together. My mom didn't really care when people came over so my house became the spot we went to a lot, which I kind of liked because it made me feel important to the group. I wasn't popular at all, most people just didn't pay any attention to me. Girls never showed any interest in me, I didn't really know how to dress well. I thought making your clothes match meant if you were wearing blue shorts you should also wear a blue shirt, which I now call the crayon look. I got pretty chubby in my junior year from drinking lots of soda and energy drinks, and never exercising.
I had a real split view of myself. On one hand I thought I was the shit. In my mind I was the smartest guy in school, with all this potential to do something big, and everyone was an idiot for not realizing my greatness. I joined as many brainy extra-curricular activities as I could; Quiz Bowl, Academic decathlon, Science Olympiad, to prove how smart I was. Whenever we had to take some mass standardized test I would go seek out the other smart kids in the school to make sure I had scored higher than them. At the same time I hated myself and my situation. I would ask why can't I be good looking, or suave, or popular, or a nuclear family. I constantly told myself that I didn't care what other people thought of me, neither my classmates or my father, even though I desperately wanted validation from both. I got really depressed the end of my junior year, failed a bunch of classes because I kept skipping school because I was too anxious to go. I felt like a failure that I couldn't actually spend my time on anything important, and I just played video games all the time.
Since high school I've slowly improved myself and become better. I dropped the weight. I bike, do Jiu-Jitsu, camp, and hike. I like the way I dress and I think I've become pretty fucking handsome. I have some core principles about who I want to be as a person, what's right and wrong, and that takes priority over what people think about me. I still want people to like me, I think we mostly all do, but I have the self-confidence to be firm about who I am. I still think I have the potential to do something big, but have the knowledge now that it will take a lot of work, my genius isn't going to just magically materialize into something. I like who I am, and I have confidence that I'm going to keep being better.
I still feel haunted by my childhood self though. I became quiet and reserved because I didn't have the maturity to be who I wanted to be, and now that I am much more mature and have a good deal of self-esteem, I feel like I should have become more confident or suave or something. But when I meet new people or with someone who's not a good friend, I still have that voice in my mind saying that if I open my mouth I'm going to say something stupid and make a fool of myself. So I'm still mostly quiet and reserved. I feel even more of a disconnect because I've mostly done sales jobs, and I'm a really good salesman, but I can't make small talk for the life of me. So I can come off as confident when I'm talking about whatever I've researched and been trained to sell, but if the conversation veers off I get lost.
I have a lot of creative projects I want to work on, and I've slowly gotten better at actually putting time towards them, but I still struggle heavily with defaulting to playing video games, and then I'm constantly frustrated with myself for not working on what I think is important.
This post doesn't really have a point, and I hope it wasn't rambly. I just moved to a new city and I don't know anyone here. This is something I'd like to take a friend out for a drink and get off my mind that way, but I don't have anyone to talk to right now, I have trouble making new friends because of my awkwardness, and it's extra hard because of the pandemic. So I'm just having a drink by myself and telling it to you folks. Thanks.

2020.09.24 00:00 GoldRol228 Estranged from family members & relatives

I'm using a burner account for obvious reasons, but I need some advice in terms of what to do. I don't know what is wrong with me.
Just a side note, I did grow up with an abusive mother both physically and mentally. I never felt connected to my mother nor do I see her as a mother figure, but I'm there for them both as I'm still their child and they are still my parents. My mother was very abusive to me growing up. Once I was able to leave I did great things for myself, but it took a long time to build myself up and my confidence. But the connection for me doesn't exist with my mother. It doesn't stop me from dropping by and seeing them from time to time. The rest of the family, I never interact with or see (being 6 years now)
My father however is a very generous person, very nice and I love him and connect with him often.
I don't know what's wrong with me, and why I've distanced myself but now I can't stand the thought of seeing them (relatives). I don't know how I will react or behave. My relationship with my parents, they don't know much about me. They never knew I graduated college because they didn't know I attended, I don't share much info and they don't ask often about me.
I don't even think they know what I do, or where I live. Our hangouts and conversations are something more or less like, oh just working and hanging out with friends. "Same Old, same old" but they never care to ask me about anything, so I never care to go out of my way to share anything. Adventures, trips, friends, what I do, what my passions are, my education, etc. So even though I am more or less myself around them, I don't think anything I say really matters as I don't think on a subconscious level they care. Because of that, figuring out that early on, I stopped sharing because I realized it goes nowhere. So what is the point. But I'm ok with that.

2020.09.23 21:54 thequietpirate444 Neverwinter Valley Mega Campaign(Lost Mines+Dragons of Icespire+Rise of Tiamat)

Intro
Hello all, I’ve been wanting to post a guide for some time, however there are so many great guides out there, and I wanted to contribute something unique. Drawing inspiration from Bob World Builder’s Youtube channel, I decided to run Lost Mines of Phandelver (LMoP) and Dragons of Icespire peak (DoIP) together for two of my ongoing campaigns. I have taken it one step further and combined the three follow up adventures of DoIP with Rise of Tiamat to create one mega campaign setting in the Sword Coast designed to take characters from levels 1-15. (I guess a disclaimer is that my group is just wrapping the LMoP arc so much of this has not actually been played.) All of these modules share common elements, and with some small adjustments, can be combined into a single continuous campaign. The guide will be broken into several parts as follows: (1)Issues with each of the modules and what is gained by combining them, (2) How to combine the modules’ narratives and pace leveling, and (3) Changes to locations and NPCs.
Issues with the Modules and Why to Combine
Each of the modules I have included I think are quite good as is, but there are a few complaints with each I will detail.
Linking the Modules Narrative
Now with my gripes out of the way, let’s take a look at how to combine these modules together, and in doing so resolve the above problems.Any modified quests I refer to, as well as other recommended changes can be found in the next section.
Even though I knocked it initially, I actually like to begin with the Goblin Arrows adventure hook. Despite it not connecting the player’s to Gundren, it does connect the player’s to Phandalin, and each other. They are co-workers heading to a common place with a common goal. It is a simple job that any character could feasibly take up, and it is much better than the stereotypical tavern start. I don’t push Klarg’s cave on the players however. If they explore it great, they can get to level 2 that way. If they continue into the town however, direct them towards the quest board, which will contain the starting quests for DoIP. This provides the players an alternative pathway to reaching level 2. Regardless of whether they explore Klarg’s cave, when they reach level 2 and next return to town, trigger the rebrand encounter from LMoP. Let the encounter end however is natural. If they continue on to the hideout of their own volition, then you can keep them right on the LMoP track as written (Redbrand Hideout to Cragmaw Castle to Wave Echo Cave). However there is a chance that during each step along the way, they will fall off the track..
If they fall off the LMoP track that is perfectly fine, continue giving them quests from the DoIP quest board following its leveling guide until the party is level three, almost four. The LMoP plot is not inactive however. At the black spider’s behest, in an attempt to drive off Gundren’s former employees, she has her dopplegangers kill and impersonate Harbin. When they are almost level four, the next time the players return to phandalin, they see what appears to be a shakedown at barthen’s provisions. Two rebrands stand outside, while three inside break things and shout, demanding the money they are owed. The redbrands are, in fact, enacting a new tax under the direction of “townmaster Harbin”. If the party intervenes, “Harbin” makes an appearance to scold them for undermining his authority. He informs the party that he has hired the redbrands as supplemental protection against the dragon and that they are to be respected henceforth. This is very unlike Harbin, and is the party’s first clue that something is not right. I like to have one “Harbin” hangout in the town hall following the incident, and the other remain in the house with the real Harbin’s corpse. If the players visit both locations in succession, let them get the sense that something is amiss.. If they are clueless to Harbin’s replacement as my group was, then go ahead and give them the Dragon Barrow quest directly from Harbin.
This quest, if played with some adjustments, is a deadly encounter for your level three party. Only creative and cautious players will be able to survive. This is because “Harbin” is sending the group their death, or so he thinks. If the party survives the Dragon Barrow encounter, when they return to town, the player with the highest passive perception notices “Harbin” is clearly surprised to still see them alive. This is likely to cause the final confrontation with “Harbin” and by proxy the redbrands. If the party doesn’t cause a ruckus “Harbin” offers them the Axeholm quest next, but also plans to send Glasstaff + 6 redbrands as a hit squad when the party nears town the next time from traveling. Once the party either confronts “Harbin” or deals with the Glasstaff hit squad, provide them with the means of learning about the black spider targeting them and the location of cragmaw castle. In my game the hitsquad came, they captured a redbrand, learned about the letters back in the hideout, got the letters, learned about cragmaw castle from the bugbears, and then went to confront “Harbin”. If you go this route I suggest emptying the hideout of enemies, saving the bugbears, and having just a few remaining rebrands in town. The majority of redbrands went with the hitsquad, and another encounter with a large number of them would be tedious at this point. As would combat with a single doppelganger and a few redbrands. I recommend hand waving this fight and just letting the players describe how they stop the fleeing doppelganger. There are many ways for players get this information however. Provide it in whatever way is most natural to how the characters have played (For example if they caught a doppelganger instead, they might not need the letters or glasstaff.) Once they have this information, they should have enough motivation to seek out the rest of the LMoP story path. Let them finish Wave Echo Cave and reach level 6. Then begin playing up the conflict between the two dragons.
Draw the players to the final two locations: Thundertree and Icespire Peak. Let these locations play out as written with one exception. The cultists in Thundertree are from the same cult that is trying to raise tiamat. In Rise of Tiamat the chromatic dragons are allies of the cult, and this is a nice bit of foreshadowing for the party. If the party kills or interrogates the cult, let them found out they were sent by their leader Severin to make allies with this chromatic dragon. They don’t know much else about sverin’s plot however. Once the party reaches level 7 upon killing Cryovein, they will return to a large celebration in Phandalin, and there will be no further quests offered from the town. Instead the next day the group receives a message for an audience with the Lord of Neverwinter who wishes to speak with them concerning their recent acts of valor and beseech their aid concerning another town, Leilon.
The party’s travel is peaceful, especially with the dragon’s departure, but when they arrive in Leilon trigger the Normal day in Leilon quest, reward them with the map normally found during Foul Weather at the Wayside. From here they can either continue investigating Leilon, or return to the Lord of Neverwinter. If they continue investigating, send them on the Aid from Phandalin quest for the eyepiece to reveal the Thunder Cliffs. If they go back to the Lord of Neverwinter, have him inform them of the First Council of Waterdeep, and if the players mention the maps offer to have a wizard study them while they complete a council quest. During the first council the party receives two quests, the Ice Sea and Varren Quests from Rise of Tiamat. Upon the completion of these, have the players receive summons for a Second Council of Waterdeep, and be attacked by the cult for the first time. From the second council the players are encouraged to continue exploring Leilon, and to seek out the metallic dragons. Offer them the Death-Knight, Leilon point, and modified Metallic Dragon quests. After they complete two, add Iniarv’s Tower and modified Claug’s Lair. When they complete two more of the remaining quests, they should be level 11 and be ready for the Leilon Siege quest. After the siege, let the party resolve the final quests with each of the cult, however note the changed motivations of each of the cult in light of the events in Rise of Tiamat. If the party is able to negotiate for their aid or cease fire, then let them. Diplomacy can be equally as rewarding as combat. At this point the party receives the third cult attack, summons for the third council, and three more quests. These are Nerovain, Thay, and Xanathal’s Tower. These will take your party to level 15 at which point they are ready for the final quest in the rise of tiamat. Below is a sample quest path through the modules by level.
Sample List
Level 1: Goblin Arrows Ambush, Umbrage Hill
Level 2: Redbrand Encounter, Dwarven Excavation including Random Encounter with Cryovein
Level 3: Clarg’s Cave, Shrines of Savras, Barthen’s Shakedown, Half of Dragon Barrow
Level 4: Other Half of Dragon Barrow, Mountain Toe Goldmine, Glasstaff hit squad
Level 5: Cragmaw Castle, Wave echo Cave, Axeholm
Level 6: Thunder Tree, Icespire Peak
Level 7: Normal Day in Leilon, Aid from Phanadlin, Thundercliffs
Level 8: First Council, Ice Sea, Varren
Level 9: First Cult Attack, Second Council, Deathknight, Bronze Shrine
Level 10: Iniarv’s Tower, Claug’s Lair
Level 11: Leilon Besieged (second cult attack)
Level 12: Storm Lord’s, Mausoleum
Level 13: Third Cult Attack, Third Council, Nerovain
Level 14: Thay, Xanathal’s Tower
Level 15: Fourth Council, Fourth Cult Attack, Rise of Tiamat
Modifications to Locations and NPCs
General
Dragon Barrow (Credit to Bob World Builder and Sly Flourish)
Wave Echo Cave
Thundertree
Metallic Dragons/Bronze Shrine
Claug’s Lair
Fheralai Final Confrontation and Uluran Final Confrontation
Conclusion
As I mentioned above, I haven’t played through the entirety of this campaign, and undoubtedly I will make further changes to quests to better fit the overall story. This guide is meant to be an initial framework which I’m hoping to revise with both my player’s and the community's feedback. If you have any ideas for additional changes or adjustments I would love to read them, and post an updated guide in the future.

2020.09.23 16:40 mootheuglyshoe Sims 4 Mod/Dev Idea for Clubs

Once again, sharing my ideas here in the hopes that modders or Sims developers are reading and interested.
One thing I SORELY wish was in Sims 4 is conflict and challenge and I have a really simple but versatile solution for it.
A Club "Boss System" Add-on. What it would look like is this:
  1. Club leaders would now be considered a "boss." The would have three ranks below them: Right Hand Sim (1 Sim), Tier 2 (3 Sims) and Tier 1 (3 Sims), equaling the eight we're allotted in a club.
  2. For each tier you set a "Defeat Condition." This is where the real fun and creativity begins. Say you want to tell a story about a child who gets in trouble at school? Their defeat conditions for Tier 1 may be "Make Furious." Their condition for Tier Two may be "Make Dazed" and the condition for the principal might be "Become Best Friends." You could also have more obvious defeat conditions, like winning a spellcastevampire battle, casting a spell on them, lowering Motives, Fall in Love, etc. This could allow for both mundane stories and stories for occults.
  3. Aggression: Clubs should have three ranks for how aggressive they are ONLY when at their own club hangout. 1) Passive - they are just there. 2) Disciplinary - they will react only if you break one of their club rules or 3) Aggressive, they will fight anyone not in their own club or friends with them. Reactions would also be set, like: "detain," "enter fight/duel," "lecture," or "befriend." So say you are playing a Sim from an opposing Club. You enter their Club hangout and break a rule. Their Reaction setting is to "Enter Fight/Duel." Your win condition is to "Win a fight/duel." So you break a rule and they automatically will attack you. If you defeat them, they will be asleep long enough for you to move along. If they win, however:
  4. Consequences for Failure: There would be a "detention" room setting, maybe simply by clicking doors. Sims brought to the detention room will have to stay locked in there and might roll a chance to talk to the Boss. Otherwise, they will go there and then if they are set to Passive or Disciplinary, your Sim will be let out, or if they are Aggressive, your sim will be kicked from the lot.
  5. New Objects: A "Boss Chair" you can put in the club's hangout where the boss will continuously return to. Also new "lock-picking" ability and spell would be amazing for the detention doors.
There could be moodlets attached to this, but honestly, so many of the things people would do with this would have their own moodlets attached anyway, that they might become redundant.
What would you add to this concept? What stories would you create if you had the ability to set up boss scenarios like this?

2020.09.23 00:32 cgibsong002 Any suggestions for setup or placement in this awkwardly shaped room?

https://i.imgur.com/id6syz2.jpg
Little sketch above of our basement bahangout. Tv will be mounted above the fireplace with the couch facing towards that. And the main attraction is the bar and booth/table over on the other side of the room. The problem is, i can't seem to come up with a good idea for audio that would work well for both music (bar area), and home theater setup.
Really my top priority is music since i don't watch a ton of movies any more, do currently i have 2 bookshelves on stands where the X's are located (and a sub i forgot to mark as well). This location seems pretty ideal for good music throughout anywhere in the room. Problem there is the random speakers are kind of awkward looking.
Then for tv, i really can't think of anything. And overall my wife is somewhat opposed to speakers just all around the whole room. So the fireplace is flush with the wall, so there's no sleek way to add a 3.1 system that i can think of without just sticking out too bad. I suppose i can do in wall speakers but i don't know a ton about them and if it's really worth it.
I guess i don't know exactly what I'm asking, just looking to get advice and suggestions in general. I think biggest thing is figuring out if i can find a better way to setup speakers so they could be used for both tv and music. And then second is if anyone can recommend maybe some smaller or more sleek/attractive options that will blend in with this small room.
Edit: forgot to add that i have some dead space on the other side of the wall of the fireplace, so I'm not quite as concerned with where to put like my receiver and whatever other gear i may need.

2020.09.22 23:53 Monkeythrowaway47 Is this a reason to be mad

Hi so we are all in our thirties. My boyfriend and I have been together for a little over two years. We are currently living together. He has a female best friend from many years ago. Since moving in together I noticed how often he talks to her. Morning and late at night and throughout the day. It bothered me a bit but I have met her before and he did show me their messages once. Although they always use snapchat mostly, so it was just their current conversation. I asked why she sends him selfies because I don't really send selfies to my guy friends and he brushed it off said it's just their friendship. Fast forward to me now on alert most of the time because I had a weird feeling about their relationship. It has kept me up at night and given me so much anxiety. My ex cheated on me and I know I have a lot of insecurity behind it. I am working on it but my gut feeling was driving me crazy. I asked him flat out if he ever slept with her or were more than friends and he got very angry and said absolutely never and how I am too jealous and I have guy friends too so why am I even asking him. But continued to talk to her every day. I snooped his phone because he never wanted to talk about her with me and it was driving me insane. Two years before we dated he was dating another girl and during this time his best friend told him she should stop hanging out with him while he is in a relationship, because she has feelings for him and it would be best for her to not be as close with him. Then later he was single again and she and she and him had many from what it seems platonic hangouts but she stayed over his apartment at least once a month or more just the two of them. I also wanted to add that he has once elluded to telling me I sound "just like his ex" when I brought up how uncomfortable their relationship makes me. What bothers me is she hangs out with him without me sometimes. She always is working or busy when I tell him to invite her over or somewhere. I ask every time we do anything if she could come. We have hungout all together a couple times so she's not a complete stranger. But did her romantic feelings really go away I mean it was years ago but why does she still text and send him selfies daily ? Is this something I should be upset about?

2020.09.22 18:50 Korekxc Looking for a gang (finger gun noises in the background)

Hi, my name is Gabby I am quite the chaotic goofball so if I randomly spazz or say things out of the blue then don’t mind me.
I don’t really have anyone to hangout with on RDR2 (Xbox One), so I was wondering if there would be anyone that would like to hangout with me on there? We can do bounty hunting stuff, hunting, moon shining, whatever sounds fun to do (I’ve been working on my hunting). I’m laid back and casual but may cuss at a player or NPC for no reason lol, I’m not super good at the game but I’m decent. If you wanna join me sometime then just message me your gt and I will add you as soon as I can. Thank you!

2020.09.22 01:50 OmegaAtrocity 26 [M4F] North Carolina - Tall dude seeking something

Hello to you reading this I hope you are having a good night (or whatever it is where you are)! My name is John and I am a 26 year old unremarkable dude from western North Carolina (my 7th grade teacher is very proud of me for restating the prompt).
A little about me: I'm really tall, 6'7" to be exact, and I did play basketball, still do when I'm not completely beat from work! That's another thing I do a lot of: (colon within a colon, my 7th grade teacher is now disappointed) work! I work about 50 hours per week, hopefully it slows down now that summer is over. I work for a soda distribution company, it's not that exciting but I'm happy to talk about it. When I have free time I like to go to metal concerts (RIP), watch sports (NHL, NFL, NBA), play video games (currently playing Metro: Exodus and Hades), pet my cat, talk to/hangout with friends, tinker on various projects, enjoy nature, swing on my porch swing, and many other glorious and boring things.
Well to be honest that's about all I have to add there, I'm just a fairly regular dude, just tall. I guess I will end this with 2 things that might be an auto turnoff for you: I'm an atheist and I don't plan on ever having children.
If you made all the way through feel free to hit me up, would be nice to have someone to chat with for at least a little while. Best of luck to you, hope the few minutes I spent typing this at least gave you a couple of laughs!

2020.09.21 23:19 watercat55 NIO as an investment

NIO is a Chinese Electric Car company. They have an opportunity to grow as a premier EV Company. In July 2020 they delivered 2,610 cars. Tesla led the market with 11,575 cars delivered in July 2020. As shown by this link https://www.iea.org/reports/global-ev-outlook-2020 China's influence on the EV market grows with every year and is the biggest EV market in the world. NIO currently trades at $18.75 a value that may look like a premium to others but an opportunity once it grows as a bargain. According to CNN business NIO has 1 year forecast of $120.46 according to 16 analysts. https://money.cnn.com/quote/forecast/forecast.html?symb=nio. This looks like a premium value for NIO which it is. The future is Electric as more countries realize that ICE vehicles will not help with Global Warming targets. According to the Agust from NIO "NIO delivered 3,965 vehicles in August 2020, a new monthly record representing an 104.1% year-over-year increase." They will grow as they are expanding their monthly vehicle output to 5 thousand per month. 21,667 cars were delivered in 2020. NIO is the 7th largest car manufacturer with 21,667 cars delivered throughout 2020. In my opinion they will continue to grow not only because of NIO cars, but with NIO Home a place where NIO car owners can meet and hangout and boost productivity. NIO home adds an extra element as a subscription model which is very profitable as shown by Microsoft and streaming services. NIO is trying to be a brand such as TESLA. NIO is one of the first company with Battery swap instead of plug in. This is great for high density locations as they can grow and pack them in places with lost of people to service lost of people. Also NIO just launched BaaS which allows you to rent a battery and make the total car cheaper. The NIO car is already cheaper then a Tesla Car. NIO will grow not only because of Battery swap because it takes less then 5 minutes got change your battery and have a full battery. Also NIO is working on an app to allow you to buy preowned cars and since the battery is swappable it can be reused many times. This is my opinion on why NIO will become a big car company in China. This may turn out to be a terrible investment but it is one I have to take as a see the future of green energy and EV cars as they can help slow down global warming which will only get worse by year. The great investor Warren Buffet once said"Only buy something that you’d be perfectly happy to hold if the market shut down for 10 years.” Climate change is a seriuous probelm and through innovation NIO will become a great investment and will help solve this serious threat to our society.

Hey all! Thank you so much for taking the time to read this!
Apologies to the mods who deleted my last post. Forgot to add flair!!
I'm BJPickles (I'll explain the story of that name another time, but it's entirely SFW 😂 - It stands for Brian Julian - not my name.)
I'm from the UK, so (currently) GMT+1.
I'm a returning player to VRChat, though spent relatively little time in it, so please consider me rather new!
I would just love to meet some awesome new people to hang out with, and make some good memories! I've spent some time creating a 'little' private hangout as a few of us play guitar and like to have a good sing, so we're looking forward to that. Likewise having movie nights (or whatever is on YouTube to watch!)
Mooncake's Bar & Live Lounge: https://i.imgur.com/lDC5qSF.gif
I am aware there are dedicated worlds for this stuff, but I wanted a little place for just friends etc. Anyway so that's a brief intro about me, again thank you for reading!
I'd really love to meet new people, hang out and have a good time! Please let me know if anyone would like to!!
Have a great day! 😁

2020.09.21 08:52 Elfish-Phantom Does anyone feel bad about Cordelia?

Cordelia begins as a reluctant ally against evil, bemoaning the stains left on her clothes when she's held hostage by vampires, and develops into a daring, capable fighter. She was willing to put everything to the side to date Xander and hangout with the gang even if it meant she would be ridiculed by her peers like the cordettes. Cordelia ultimately has heart broken by Xander and then everything goes downhill from there. She ends up losing everything because her Dad filed his taxes wrong. Fourth season starts and there is no mention of Cordelia, the other characters don't even acknowledge her absence, like damn, sure she wasn't the greatest person to get along with but she was part of the gang.
After that she ends up becoming a higher being and none of the original gang are there for her, does any of them even know what happened to her? I get that she now is immortal as she is higher being, but it sucks. She was born a human and lived on earth for however many years that she did, it's not like she'd ever experience it again because she is now a higher being.
I really feel sad for her character, when I saw the series as a little kid and teenager I hated Cordelia, but now that I watch her I realize that she is such a great character. Her ending was just bad and apparently she was told her character wouldn't die, but we all know how that turned out. Cordelia blossomed into someone dynamic and fascinating. She was self-centered, with a mean streak that never entirely went away, but she was also brave, generous, and surprisingly tender. She wasn't always likable, but she was wholly her own person.
Can I also just add that Charisma Carpenter is just so damn pretty. Cordelia Chase was my first crush or should I say Charisma Carpenter.

2020.09.21 07:00 Lost_Competition1881 I wish people noticed- but then again, I don’t wanna deal with them trying to make me feel ok again. (Plus Tea about my old friends)

People I mention- A, T, E, L, F, J, LE, C, D, K I basically see my best friend everyday (A). I know we are supposed to stay in our house and away from people but she’s like the only thing keeping me going. She pulled me out of my funk a few months ago and made me feel happy again. Except now I’ve fallen into the funk again, my best friend kinda knows I did, but I’m having a really hard time talking to her about my feelings and the extent of how crappy I feel, the only times I feel good anymore is with her or when I’m out with my mom. FYI I am clinically depressed, our other friend of our little “trio” is bipolar (T) (except he uses that as an excuse to shit on other people and as an defense so people don’t confront him about it, but that’s another story) and she knows his depression “habits” I guess I could call them. Unfortunately, some of them have rubbed off on me. This is really hard for me to type but I just need someone to hear me so- There’s these red lines on my wrist now, and sometimes I put them back when they fade away. Like I said, I see her everyday and I’ve been making the lines for a little over 2 months and she hasn’t noticed, in fact, no one has. I’ve been hanging out with my trio a lot and I even saw our other friend (J) recently. But these 3 people are basically my only friends now. Everyone else I thought I was close with, betrayed me, first, I dropped one of my friends cause she was really toxic (LE) I got some self respect and shut her ass down (that was a year ago, and I feel about as worse as I did with her, but if I was still friends with her now I would feel 2x more worse then I do now. So that’s good Ig) then one of my other friends, I believed they liked but apparently they hated me the entire time we hung out together(C). Quick story about C, which will probably make you hate me for being such a doormat. One year she just attacked me so hard and turned out whole friend group against me. They were the only people I hung out with- all my other friends hung out with people I didn’t want to be around- or they didn’t wanna hangout with me so I was basically friendless. I got so used to My habits self neglect at school I started behaving the same way at home. I hardly ate and Physical health got as worse as my mental health. Because of all the neglect I was making myself experience, I had the worse spring ever, and I also got Lyme disease. It was horrible. and I can’t believe I didn’t realize, she was a bitch to me) and talked shit about me behind my back, gee, even her bf felt bad for me. (D) This guy has never really been my “friend” or been very nice to me flat out, and has called me a retard quite a few times, but he stood up for me a few times against his bitch gf. (He also yelled at my friends in third grade for beating me up with words, we shared a table witht them at lunch and he and his friend saw me crying and my friends being awful and shut it down and helped get a teacher and move me to another table so I can’t say I hate him) and then my best friend since kindergarten. (E) I thought she was awesome throughout our entire friendship. I even helped her get a boyfriend! (J) Then she broke up with him during quarantine and spread rumors about him and yelled at me for sticking up for him (FYI this is the kid who I got see recently, J, and one of my only friends now, so obviously I cared a lot about him so I was pissed by the rumors I was hearing) and bringing up my next friend. Before my new trio, I had this girl, (E), the girl from kindergarten who spread rumors and this new friend (L). I introduced them to each other for my birthday party (it was a trip to Alexandria and national harbor so it was jusy them two with me) they clicked immediately. I was really glad she had a new friend cause this new girl I just brought up was having hard boy troubles. And my rumor friend had just gotten together with her bf (J)(who she spread rumors against) so, they talked about boys the whole trip. Now they both new that I had recently come out as a female oriented bisexual, and regardless of my sexuality, I didn’t enjoy talking about crushes (weird fact about me, I haven’t had a crush, it was mainly cause I was bullied for saying a thought someone was cute or if I showed just a little bit of interest for someone, by LE, and felt embarrassed thinking of even having a crush cause of all this- so I never even admitted to myself that I ever had a crush on anyone) that was the only thing that really bothered me on the trip. But more and more, our “trio” became a “duo” and I was excluded... more and more... yet my dumb self still really wanted to prove myself as a good friend so I kept trying and probably annoyed them into stopping talking to me during quarantine. Then after my awesome trustworthy friend who I mentioned in the first sentence, (A) helped me get social again- so I reached out again. This started my new trio, except then it was a group of 7. 5 of us met up at a local playground and hung out. The other 2 people weren’t allowed to leave their homes so we jusy I texted them and kept in touch. The five of us who met up were me, A, T, L, and a new character, well call him T, and the two who weren’t allowed out were the couple. (E and J) so obviously I saw the 5 about everyday so it was easy to keep up with them. I fell out of touch with E and occasionally talked to J cause he was a good person to talk to. Thinking back, J wasn’t actually a part yet, so for this part forget he was in the picture. So I haven’t talked to E a lot and she never told me about her love life anymore, but apparently she told everything to her new best friend- L. One day I was sitting with A, T and F, waiting for L to arrive. She arrives on FaceTime with E. They were loudly talking about J, so after They hung up, we asked what was up with E and J, and she told us- they were broken up. Me and A shared shocked looks cause when school was still going on they were the cutest couple. L continued to share how much a toxic mean asshole J had become (I hadn’t talked to J at months FYI) and being Gullible idiots- we easily believed this and was kinda like “wow how did J change?) (also, a and I agree that J is the nicest dude we’ve ever met- he’s really awesome and looked out for me ah after school clubs (J and A were the only people who cares about how I was being treated and how I was feeling and stuff like that) so it was a huge shock and I don’t know why I fell for it and I feel bad for believing that. Couple weeks later, I finally talk to J again with A. And he was still the really nice guy I knew, so A and I knew we were being lied to. L and E were spreading fake rumors about J. Luckily it didn’t reach as far as the group of 7 people but it still pissed off me and A, so we talked to E and asked what J did to deserve being called an asshole. She was pissed we were asking about her personal business and getting all up in her face, and when she told told me to butt out, I told her that if she had treated their breakup like a normal person- I wouldn’t have to. And she did this thing- I don’t know what to call it. But it’s basically pulling the victim card by admitting defeat and saying that they were the villain (know what I mean?) anyways my blowup on my part and her reply to it just had me put my phone away for the night and I haven’t reached out to her since. Except for one other thing. I was feeling really weird about this whole thing with E, so I decided to confide in a new character- K! I told him all about this piece of drama and gave him a lot of trust. And you know what he did with that trust? Throw it away. He went and attacked E over text, saying I called her all these nasty things and being an overall jerk and just starting new stuff. He told me about it later and I was upset. At the time he told me- I laughed it off, his perspective was funny. Then I went to apologize to E about some of the stuff K did and that I didn’t send him to attack her, she realized and said that she didn’t appreciate what K did and told me the whole h Thing- and it was so much worse. I yelled at him and realized he didn’t care about me at all- just wanted to fight someone. And he tried to frame me as one of his other friends who get mad at his every movement and I was taking none of it. And i pulled something I’m not proud of, I said “this is why you don’t have friends anymore” and it was true- he told me himself. He had lost every one of his friends except me, from his urge to fight everyone. He just kept laughing at me, his defense is to laugh at anyone who tried to shut his shit down and it’s infuriating. So I quit speaking to him. Now there’s still two people I haven’t finished with their story. L and F. F can’t control his mouth. He says awful things to us all the times without thinking. And when he hurts one of me, A or T, the other two bite back. And he acts like a pissbaby victim when gets called out for being a jerk, and he and L believe we are big bullies and they’re angels. Long story short. They didn’t change and if they were gonna keep biting at us, instead of biting back or trying to mend the wound, we just quit. We didn’t care about being right or getting them back as a friend anymore. And that’s the end of the friend drama tea I have to share
But I do have a rant from my notes I will also share in this— here it is: (FYI this was sent to A when we were talking about feelings for the 5th night in a row, we talk a lot about it)
Man I was just going to ignore myself and not be so self centered while we talked but I’m not feeling ok, hanging out today made me feel awesome! Then you left and I started feeling the way I did before and idk what to do. Everyone says talk about it with Mrs. Danielle but there’s a lot of stuff she doesn’t understand. I feel the most comfortable talking to you cause you’re my closest friend and you get how I feel kinda cause you’re going though the same time as me. But, you’re also 12-13ish and apparently you’re not “super reliable”, and there’s still a lot of stuff you don’t know cause either I’m to embarrassed to talk about, or I just can’t get something past my lips or don’t know how to word them. And I don’t find relief in a lot or notamlt stuff people like or use. Talking is hard. It’s really hard. I don’t know how to explain it. There’s so many thoughts and there’s not enough words or time to go through it all. I don’t know what to do and I just don’t know anymore. Honestly all I’m hanging on too is the people more important to me, and people I care about anymore. i don’t wanna care about Emily. I don’t want to. But somewhere, something cares. And I don’t like it. And it’s not even mostly her, it’s a lot of stuff I don’t know or want to explain. I really don’t wanna feel anynore or deal with these feelings, it’s just all falling down, hard, then pretending to still be ok, then falling again when no one is around. And something I kinda just realized as I typed this, was that I don’t put on a mask while I’m with people to pretend to be happy, being with you and my nice friends and when I’m hanging out with my mom, I generally happy then. The close people in my life that I love (family or platonicly, cause whats romanticly?) are basically the only things that make me really feel happy, but of course, there’s a lot of time where they aren’t around and it gets really dark and it doesn’t feel alright. Even when I’m actually with people and I have a moment of thought and I’m like “this isn’t ok” but I can’t really be sad cause then it looks like I’m just looking for attention and pity. I try to pretend so hard I don’t care what others think, but I do, I care so much. I’m so insecure, I hate almost about everything about me, and I’m always around so much people who are just so beautiful and (some for this second one)kind and helpful and I don’t get how people are like that. (Yes, Im talking about you in that. Especially you). I have no idea how I landed such an awesome friend like you. I’ve only ever had people like Leia, Maddy, Caroline and even Emily. Why is emilt apart of that category? She was like the perfect friend back in elementary school? What happened? Why? Why does it feel like everyone who’s been my best ffriend turn out to be awful? And why did I all the sudden get an awesome person like you? Why wasn’t anyone else so trustworthy and stuff like this where I can send this to you? People (especially Lina Ig) don’t realize how important and amazing it is to have an outlet? Well, I mean, getting stuff out helps a little, but barely, it just makes it so I know I’m not entirely alone. Someone knows I’m hurting, even tho Theu can’t do much or know or understand much, someone knows. And hopefully cares. All I want is someone to care. People who care are probably my favorite thing on this earth. They make me feel worthwhile, to be cared about. Sometimes, a lot of times, I don’t feel I deserve it, or sometimes not even want it, but knowing some gives a shit means everything. I over exaggerate a lot but that wasn’t one. I’m glad I have someone I trust to send this to, someone who will care, will know.
I have some more too Here’s a rant after spending two weeks with my infuriating cousin to A. And me just pushing out my thoughts of the trip through thyr night of my sisters 16th bday, *warning lots of cursing and just raging- this is the last part of this post so just skip to the end to read the last paragraph if you managed to get this far if you don’t wanna see this rant
I’m really mad rn
And it’s so stupid
And I’m also already pretty grumpy
I was playing Minecraft with my cousin and I was setting up a prank for him, and he saw me and tried to avoid the prank by using commands, so I changed his permissions to use commands and he started yelling at me to put them back on and remove the gravel (the prank was I blocked him out with gravel) and I was like just shovel through the gravel it’s not that hard and he eventually said it was cause his shovel broke and I said “if that were the case you would said that earlier” and now I’m moving out of the bedroom we share there now and building a new one (it’s underground) and he asked if I was making a stable for our animals. And I was like no why would I do that underground?!?!?!? And it was so dumb so I kinda responded sarcastically to everything he said and eventually he told me “why don’t you try something new, and shut up” and I was kinda speechless cause that’s basically what everyone who was mean to me would say and I just said “yah you try that too” cause I didn’t want to show weakness.
I’m a kinda a violent person Ig . I can never really hit someone, but I’ve had several dreams beating up (LE) And I’ve thrown plenty shoes at my sister irl and even a trash can (it shattered)
And I wanted to strangle him so bad
But I didn’t
I tell this story a lot, but once a group of popular kids I was forced to hang out with cause our moms are friends told me I couldn’t shut up for 10 minutes. And I stayed shut for 2 hours to prove myself. And it was the absolute dummest thing I’ve ever had to prove
And I feel like Shit. In like 5+ different ways. And we’re having a big dinner tonite with friggin SPEGGETIIIIII. I hateeee red sauce. And to make it worse, there’s all these vegetables mixed in the sauce and my Grammy will flip her fucking lid if I don’t eat it EVEN THOUGH SHE KNOWS I DONT FYCKING LIKE SPEGGETI
and I just want to curl up and cry and go home tomorrow but half the guests are here for fucking dinner and we’re going to an island tomorrow. To spend more time on the beach. When I’ve said the beach over whelms me SO much. There like “nooooo the waves are SOOOO relaxing!!!! Just listen and relaxxxcx” NO THEY FYCKING DONT THEY STRESSS ME THR HELL OUT I FEEL LIKE A TSUNAMI IS GOING TO COME CRASH AND ME A DRAG MY FACE ALONG ALL THE SHARP ROCKS AND SHELLS
Then I get made fun of for coming up all gross and hardly able to see cause of all the sand in my FYCKING eyes that are really FUCKED UP AND SENSITIVE TO EVERYTHING, PHYSICALLY AND EMOTIONALLY CAUSE I HAVE TO FYCKING LAUGH LIKE A MADMAN SO I DONT CRY INFRINT OF PEIOLE AND EMBARRASS MYSELF AND GET PITYYY
I’m sorry for lashing out I got to go get dressed now for freaking green chunked red sauce over noodles and anxiety 😐
And give my sister some shoes I picked out for her and she’s going to FYCKING never wear it and just use her new Nintendo controllers and complain she didn’t get the SEVENTY DOLLAR CAPTURE CARD SHE NEVER GOING TO USE EVEN THO WE GOT HER SIXTY DOLLAR CONTROLLERS SHE COMPLAINED ABOUT NOT HAVING LAST MONTH.
I would say I promise I’m done but I honestly don’t know. I’m sorry.
I’m so fucking stupif and irrational and hypocritical I’m done I’m sorry don’t bother reading it it’s a bunch of loaded bull shit
I’m in back in the back in my room silently sobbing and I can’t even say why and I just thought someone should know cause no one noticed I left... (this part parentheses part wasn’t in the rant I sent my friend- but the thing I was crying about was. I was having suicidal thoughts, and we were going through old baby photos and I was thinking of how destroyed my parents and family members would be if I did it. And that was making me cry, thinking back to this today is making me start to cry)
JESUS IM NOT MENTALLY STABLE AND I KEEP GETTING GUILT TRIPPED FOR BEING UPSET WTHHHHHH
I could use some pep talks in the comments and please, please don’t downgrade my depression just cause I’m in middle school, Ik middle school is a difficult time for a lot of people, but I (and everyone) still deserve to be able to talk about my feelings. I could say a lot more to add to this ok a later date but I’ve typed out so much in the last 2 hours. Thanks if you made it this far. I appreciate you.

2020.09.21 06:42 KKKLLLNNN The life I left behind

Me and my boyfriend have been living together for over a year. I moved out of my parents house the day after I graduated high school because I was so tired of their constant need for me. I was working three jobs just to get a break from them. It never helped and I never got a day off. Due to my dad’s disability he can’t really walk and always had me do stuff for him. Dad didn’t want mom doing anything when she got home from work so I had to always get my brother ready for school, clean our huge house every Friday (takes all day to clean) take care of our dog, do chores, do laundry, make sure my brother had dinner, take my brother to the gym and football practice etc. I had to always be dressed even if I was staying home. On my days off I was doing house work with dad. I would never hangout with my boyfriend even if he invited me to have dinner with his parents because “we have things that needed to be done” he would expect me to be at the door to greet mom when she came home and every night I would have to stay up and make whatever he wanted for dinner and if it wasn’t perfect he would have me re make it. I would also have to rub his feet for 30 minutes and on his needy nights he would have me pick at his big toes for an hour with a pedicure kit. Then when he was satisfied he would let me go and I would have to stay up till 9 pm to take the dog out and put it to bed and I could go on, the list never ends.
Here are some things that happened when I lived with them.
My senior year I took my remaining three classes at a local community college. So I didn’t have to go to school. Due to stupid school rules I had to take double the classes so I sent two semesters worth of classes and it started the summer my junior year ended and lasted till the end of the year. But I ended up being the earliest graduate of my school. After I finished my classes I got three jobs.
My 18th birthday came up and I was planning on hanging out with my boyfriend. It’s the morning and I’m expecting a relaxing day of having to do nothing for my parents. Welp I got annoyed that I didn’t get to sleep in, I had to do things for my dad and so on, I got a bit of an attitude and dad snaps at me and goes on about why I can’t just be happy doing stuff for him. Why don’t I smile or be happy when I’m around him. He got pissed and said I couldn’t do anything. So I spent my 18th birthday all alone.
He always hated my long hair. I could never wear my tiedye shirt because he would constantly call me a hippie. He then set a plan that I was gonna cut my hair. Not trim it, cut it shoulder length. I absolutely despised the idea and I wanted nothing to do to with it because I loved my long hair. He said it would make me look a thousand times better. Long story short I had no choice but to chop it off if I wanted to stay in there house. Rip my long hair. My parents loved my new look everyone did. But who tf doesn’t like a new look of course they will like it. I miss my long hair.
Why cleaning the house pissed me off so much
1) I cleaned it on a Friday. Which was the worse day to clean it because everyone will be home on the weekend. Mud will be tracked on the newly cleaned floors when the guys come inside from a days worth of work on the yard. Sunday breakfast gets made and no one wants to clean up after themselves.
2) There are times when my family is just pure lazy. I.E. my dog ran her butt on the floor and there’s a poop streak on the floor. Mom tells me, “hey there’s shit right there. Don’t forget to clean it up on Friday” and she says this on a Monday
3) Mom comes to me all pissed off saying I didn’t clean her bathroom. I most certainly did, and what does she show me to prove that I didn’t clean her bathroom? She shows me her toothbrush. That was laying out on the counter. Why the hell should I also have to put your shit away on top of all the other crap I do for you.
The times that I get to see my boyfriend
1) When he’s doing work for my dad
2) Those convenient times that he’s in town and can stop by work and see me.
I have a older sister who isn’t in the picture anymore and hasn’t been in years. She never graduated high school and she did some pretty bad things. My dad likes to call me by her name whenever I would badly behave. And it pissed me off so much. Because I am not lime her. Not one bit. I try telling him that but he would never listen. I tried to say something like “ or so when did I steal a car” or “ when did I ever try to kill myself” or “when did I ever try to kill my sibling” That’s the stuff she did. I try to also say “ well I have gone further than she ever has in life, I went to college, I got my drivers license, I’m still part of this family etc.” but no matter what I did he would still called me by her name.
They never cared about my health.
1) I think it was when I started taking the college courses that these migraines started. It was at its worse at night. It made me so sick. And would make me pass out. Of course my parents thought I was lying to get attention. I noticed I ate cheese every day so I thought it was that and my parents made such a scene when they heard I was trying to remove it from my diet because of these headaches. It wasn’t cheese in the end. But none the less they never believe me so I just stopped telling them about it. Now that I moved out I haven’t passed out and they are much less frequent.
2) my pupils are different sizes. When I first realized it and read that it could be a tumor I told my mom one night to look at my eye. She said “you got too many problems, remind me tomorrow”
3) I have been diagnosed with ADHD ever since I was in kindergarten. I took Adderall for it and it’s expensive. My dad was insistent that I was gonna join the military after high school. But once he learned I had to be off the medication for 6 months he was insistent that I didn’t need it. He would complain and threaten to stop paying for it. During my second semester of college I believe him and I stopped taking my medicine. I nearly failed my classes. If it wasn’t for my parents trying to get their good student discount on their insurance they would have never found out and I would have failed my courses. I am no longer on the medication I was probably experiencing withdrawal symptoms.
When I moved out I started focusing on my health.
4) After I moved out I was tired all the time. I also had my first experience with anxiety. Thus resulting in me learning that I have iron deficiency and anemia. When I told my dad all he was worried about was the bills and said I have too many problems.
5) I have had problems with heart burn since I was like in second grade. Dad did express his concern about me having to frequently using his tums. And said I should get it checked out since I shouldn’t be having these problems at such a young age. I didn’t do anything about it till I moved out because I started frequently having this feeling like I was having a heart attack and I was getting nauseous and so on. I went to the doctors to make sure I wasn’t pregnant and if I wasn’t then what the hell was going on with my heart. Turns out I have GERDS.
My parents spoil my brother like crazy.
1) They bought him a four wheeler, build a pond for him, built him a hunting shed that he barely worked on, I worked on it more than he did.
2) When he was going through headphones like there was no tomorrow, I had these great noice cancellation headphones that I loved. I had it for a year or two and it was in great condition. My brother needed headphones and I was forced to give I’m mine. Next thing I know he’s biting the chord. This resulting in those headphones to be destroyed by him. I do get another pair a year later which I ended up having to give to him again. But before that one day I ask him for a pair because I was getting cheap pairs and one ear bud keeps quitting on me. And he had a good stash so he gave me a pair and says “ if you break them you are buying me a new pair” I get absolutely pissed and told him that I never said that he had to pay for the ones that he broke. And he never bought them he got them from dad. We get in an argument and mom comes out and sides with him and says I will replace them if I break them like wtf. When I gave him my replacement pair he was taking good care of it but he had a bad habit of being on his phone while doing anything. Dad got annoyed and snatched the headphones off of him and threw them on the ground. Breaking the microphone. After that I just let him have them. I think he just got rid of them this Christmas.
3) One time we went to this theater that has reclining seats. Dad got the rows that didn’t get reclining seats. We learn that they are on rows 1-4 No biggie. Lesson learned. I’m happy, dads contempt, my bro’s friends contempt and we sit down. Of course bro has to say that he wanted reclining seats. So dad tells me to change the seats. I do. Row 4 bla bla bla of course there are still seats that don’t fully recline even though the lady said they we’re all reclining seats bro is still upset. his friend is now complaining that his Mexican vanilla milkshake doesn’t taste like vanilla so then dad leaves to fix it himself and oooooof bro’s entitlement is just like this all the time. I thought I could get a nice night out with my dad but no we had to get reclining seats. No he couldn’t just be appreciative that he is watching a movie he’s spending time with his sister that he never sees. Bla bla bla.
The big day
ALL the way up to graduation day. I took the day before, the day of, and the day after off. The day before there was rehearsal, the day of was spent preparing myself and the day after was going to be spent with my boyfriend. But I didn’t. We were preparing to go on a camping trip some time after and I always resented going because I just hate how there is always something going wrong. So I was all against it but of course I never have a say in what I want. They wanted me to spend my day off cleaning the camper. I was so pissed. So tired of everything. I was done. I didn’t do much with the camper. I stopped cleaning it when the vacuum wouldn’t work and I went to my room. My dad got pissed and told me I had an hour to pack my things and get out. I was taking things to my car and he said that I could still stat but things won’t be the same. I said f that and I left. He said he will be back for the car one day and I didn’t care. I needed to get out of that hell hole. Thankfully luck was on my side and I was able to call my boyfriend before dad turned my service off. I told him that I finally did it. I finally broke free.
I lived with my boyfriends parents for a month till he bought a house. He’s a few years older than me. Things are much better since I moved out. We are on much better terms now and he’s saying since I’ve moved out things have been much better.
But he misses me. And we talk a few times a week. But every time I go there he is always having me do something. For my moms birthday he wanted me to come by and clean the house for her. I stop by to hangout, he asks me to wash the dog even if she’s going to the groomers the next day. When I get off work he’s asked me to go pick up food for him. Every time he calls my boyfriend it’s to ask for help on a project. Every time he asks for me to come over he always expects me to do something. And I believe it’s pushing us apart. On top of that there’s been problems with him remembering what he’s been saying.
Long story short. My fried was cleaning their house and used their Netflix for background noise. She used my profile and was messing up my stuff so I made a profile that she could get on. I never have her outside access. She only had access to it at the house. When my boyfriend and I got WiFi on our house and my friend was no longer cleaning my parents house, I log us into the Netflix account because he said we could use it. I delete my friends account and add my boyfriend to it. Next thing I know the password gets reset and I can’t access it. No biggie. I call him and he says that mom told him friends profile was on it so he reset the password. I explained what happened. She has no access to it bla bla bla he said he will give it to me the password some other time. Some other time happens and I head over to my parents and ask about it. He then says no you won’t get it because you gave friend the password, he is saying that he had to delete her profile and reset the password. I could care less about having Netflix it’s just that he is twisting the events. Another thing that happened right after is that they are talking about going on a cruise this summer and he invites us. I immediately know that we don’t have the money. We won’t have the money in 7 months. We just bought a house. I just moved out. And of course he decides to go on a cruise the year I move out. How convenient. I call him and told him we won’t be going. But I add that we may be able to go on my 21st. Because that’s what I always dreamt of was to drink pina colada’s on a cruise. And we should be in a better financial situation by then. And I mention that we could possibly use the graduation money that he “gave” me. He said that he would give me 1000 for graduation. But you don’t give an 18 yo a thousand dollars so he said he would keep it till the right time comes. He said “what thousand dollars? The tires I spent on you, the time I worked on your vehicle?” First of all, the tires were part of the graduation gift. My car needed new ones to pass the inspection so he did that on top of the thousand. Then thanksgiving time I get my oil change and my car needed almost a thousand dollars worth of work on it. BUT. My uncle works there and didn’t know it was my car so a lot of things didn’t actually need to happen. Just a break pad, rotor and filters. Turns out my car didn’t need break pads. So all in all probably a hundred dollars worth of stuff. We get it taken cared of dad insisted on paying my uncle 100$ when he asked for nothing. And to make it up I went over to my parents place one day after work and helped him work on his Polaris For a few hours. I would have stayed longer but I go to bed at 6pm because I get up at 2am for work. So I couldn’t stay too long. And when I was about to leave. He wants me to clean the house to finish making up for it. I told him I could do it Friday after I get off. Thats all I said. I wait for mom to get home before I leave so it’s a bit past 6. Then dad says “so op said she can clean the house Saturday” I corrected him and mom says it can’t happen on Friday because she works etc. so it doesn’t get done. But none the less I helped him out that day.
Now that you understand that. Perhaps you can understand why I got pissed when he said “what thousand dollars” and when he try to say that getting those tires and working on the car makes up for it we’re enough to suffice. Again I’m not upset that I didn’t get that thousand dollars. I’m upset that he keeps making excuses. He can’t remember what he’s doing. He cant keep a damn promise to me. He’s been spending all this money on projects and on my brother.
My boyfriend is helping his brother this weekend and dad just called and said something like. I knew it was going to happen bf doesn’t want to help dad and make some money bf would rather not get paid and work with his brother. Dad doesn’t understand that our weekends can’t be dedicated to working for him all the time. Any time he calls my boyfriend is to as for help on a project. And I honestly think that it’s pushing him away. Dad says he’s gonna pay 100 for 8 hrs of work. He doesn’t want him to show up at mood and work for a few hours then go home. Well guess what we need our time off. I hate going over to my parents. I can’t stand my dad. He thinks what he’s doing is good for everyone but mom didn’t need my help cleaning the house. And hear this. He keeps in touch with my sister. He’s the only one. It’s his one project that failed and he wants to make it work. Well Christmas Day arrives and just after we open presents. And and hour before going to grandmas for lunch. He says he’s gonna call my sister during lunch. And we are all gonna talk to her. We haven’t spoken to her in years. Last time I talked to her she said “you are lucky to be my sister because if it wasn’t for that I would have killed you by now” And I know she keeps asking about me. I used to follow her on Facebook and last thing I know she made a post saying that I told her I wish she was dead. The time came. Dad got a call. He shushed is all and said it was her. I quietly said “welp it’s time to get the cake” because I made a delicious ass cake and it was upstairs and I wanted nothing to do with this. I told mom before we went downstairs that I didn’t want to talk to her. I’m not ready for that she’s gonna be asking for me. All the attention is gonna be on me and I didn’t want any of that. I’m getting anxiety just thinking of it. Mom said she will tell him. So right as she’s calling and I made that comment. He says “what don’t you want to talk to her” and of course this is an issue between me mom and dad and we have family members all around me and so I say sure and then mom says that I told her that I didn’t want to talk to her and neither did she and so it seemed so embarrassing on his part and I was so scared. After he decided to not have the call. I was on the verge of tears. And I was able to go upstairs in time before I started hyperventilating. Thankfully my boyfriend was there to comfort me and mom came up too and we had such a long warm hug that we haven’t had in a long long time. And I love the love I got at the moment. Because I never really got much love and support from my parents. But at that moment I had all I wanted with my mom.
But for weeks I was a total mess. The day she tried killing herself I was my first week Into this new school I made a new friend that came over for the weekend. And next think I know we hear a thud. And so on. But after that I didn’t talk to anyone for months. And I carry this guilt that I may have been the reason why she wanted to kill herself. Because she always resented me. But anyways because of Christmas all of what I’ve tried to forget for years just came back at full force.
But my current problem is trying to find an equilibrium between my parents. Every time I come to their house dad wants me to do something. It’s not like my boyfriends parents where we can just enjoy the day together. Hangout and have some dinner. Dad always has to be doing something and it’s pushing us apart and I don’t know how to tell him that he needs to stop. And part of me wants nothing to do with him because he just can’t get his shit together. He’s making too many promises. He’s doing too many projects, he’s spending too much money and until he can get his shit straight and remember what actually happened I just don’t want anything to do with him. But you need to remember he can barely walk. He needs all the help he can get. But he needs to quit spoiling his son. He needs to start thinking about what others would want and not just him.
And I don’t have the heart to tell him.
I always wanted to go into psychology, but my parent pushed me away from it and even had someone talk me out of it because “it’s such a narrow field” but recently I told people this and they are like ‘no it’s not you can still get in it’s and so on. And I was so pissed as to why my very successful parents would push me away from doing what I love. I’m so pissed. And on the Fourth of July, it’s the day they brought me and my sister to the U.S after adopting us. And I brought it up and my dad said something like. “I wish I had bought a Ferrari instead” LIKE WHAT THE FUCK!!!! and if I bring it up to then they would say they we’re just joking but you don’t joke about that shit.
