2023.06.02 12:58 NoNameIdea- My parents think I'm addicted.

It all started 2 years ago when I was 13-14 years old. At the time maybe my parents' statement was true, because I used to play video games daily for a couple of hours, but still had decent grades and was studying at the best school in my county. My parents were getting very argumentative when they caught me playing anything and insisted that I was addicted to gaming, they would treat me like a baby because from their point of view they are the only ones who play games and whenever I tried to give them a response, it was viewed as a way to cope with my addiction.

At that point these discussions were a daily thing for about 3-4 years and were stressing me out. I eventually stopped playing anything and got rid of all my accounts, not because my parents wanted it, but because I kinda got bored and was tired of having any aggressive discussions that always led nowhere. For the following months they kept making fun of me because of how addicted I was, and the arguments never really stopped, even though I stopped gaming, apart from playing Clash Royale at school, which they never knew about.

Fast forward to 9 months ago when I discovered programming. I started with the basics but quickly advanced to more complex stuff. I eventually decided that I want to make a game engine in C++/SDL2, but as you can guess it was a pain in the butt, because every time I had to test a feature I had to make sure my parents never saw me(1 of them is retired and the other one works at home so they are always present), because I thought they would say I was back to gaming. I finished the game engine and switched to competitive programming because it's more common in schools. I was always on my computer learning and solving problems and my parents started getting skeptical so they would come very often into my room and prevent me from closing the door. At some point after an argument, my mom was mad that I would close the bathroom door when I was in there, but I won't talk to much about this because it only happened once.

Anyway, despite my parents thinking that I was back to my addiction, which they desperately tried to prove, but failed because I didn't have any games on my computer, I continued with competitive programming and managed to participate in a couple of competitions in a very short time span and even qualified to the National Olympiad. At this point I was more capable of taking care of myself than I was 2 years ago and even started cooking my own food, since I am unhealthily skinny and my parents usually never cook for me because of their lack of time . Also, my friends, who my parents always give as an example, even though they don't know them at all, told me that they play video games and have no problem with it. I thought that I could finally start playing some games after a lot of grinding, without my parents having any problem with it, so I installed Minecraft exactly one week ago. I didn't play at all for the first days, but 2 days ago I said screw it and played for a couple of hours. My mom entered my room and started telling me to stop, because I'm not a baby and I should stop wasting my life, but this was clearly an improvement from our discussions from 2 years ago.

At that point I thought I was safe to keep playing, since I am still learning math and programming on a daily basis, so there was no reason to think that I was really wasting my time. I played Minecraft on the next day too. And here comes the reason for me posting this. After about 30 minutes my mom came into my room screaming and telling me to stop immediately, that I have been playing for 2 weeks now and that I am an absolute addict. I tried to deescalate the situation, but for nothing, so I decided to evade it and go for a very long walk. About 20km was enough for my parents to calm down a little bit. Despite them still being mad, I went to sleep thinking why can't I play anything despite my hard work and what do I need to do to make them proud.

So this is the story of how video games apparently ruined my relationship with my parents. I would want to ask anyone for help. I really want to have a good relationship with my parents while the possibility of still using the computer and maybe playing on it sometimes still exists. If anyone has gone through a similar situation I would really appreciate some tips, because at this point I don't think I can find the right solution to this by myself.

2023.06.02 12:57 MCMortimer_ Landed My First Fish...but its not what you think....

I have been seriously fishing (on my own, own tackle, all that good shit) for roughly 2-3 months. In that time i have had hooked a number of fish one huge carp who managed to escape just after getting him in the net, and about a 1ft pike who fought like hell and unhooked as well. I'm loving life even just hooking the fish (especially on lures) really gives me a rush...well enough to keep me coming back.
Anyway, the other night i go to my favourite spot, loads of trout and apparently a couple pike and perch and I hooked something! it looked like a fish, but wasn't fighting and my hook was not in its mouth. obviously being green got worried/interested what i had done. brought it up to the bank and there it was, a DEAD, DECOMPOSING HALF OF A FISH. Has anyone done this before? is it bad luck?

(also can upload a photo for any sikkos that wanna see)

Anyone else here think Microsoft should come up with 5 or 6 different U.I. ideas and let players choose the type of layout they like best? Like keep the old one if you don't like the new one rather than be forced to switch to the new layout when it gets released.

2023.06.02 12:56 PlasticDesign3276 I know I’m kinda a piece of shit for saying this but…

There is just one student I can’t stand. I only feel bad for saying this because this is indeed a school for students with emotional disorders. As a substitute, I unfortunately have to act as an aide every now and then DESPITE having a full blown Master’s AND ADDITIONAL CERTIFICATIONS ALONG WITH MY REGULAR ONE.
For some reason, my school has neglected to get this one a 1:1 despite them hiring many others for other students. So who has to babysit this kid every now and then? Me.
This student is beyond nasty, harasses and threatens other classmates and staff at the drop of a hat, tried to lock me out of my classroom, and BITES other people. Supposedly very bright but does absolutely NOTHING AT ALL. Has his head down half the day and when he does pop his head up, it’s just to shit on someone. Will also eat paper and turn off computers of other students that are working. Just so selfish and detrimental to the education of others who actually want to learn. He alone can ruin any positive classroom experience. He has been suspended multiple times but this does fuck all to curb his behavior.
I know as a teacher I’m responsible for looking past these types of issues, and I usually do as there are many amazing students who I work with, he is not one of them. I’m just looking for advice for next year so if I have to deal with him more, I can handle him in a way that is respectful and caring and doesn’t wear down my sanity. I know I’m a piece of shit for feeling this way, but I need the help of my teacher redditors. What shall I do?

2023.06.02 12:55 talligan How do you choose/focus your early/mid game missions?

Hi Bros,
I'm curious how you all decide what missions to do early/mid game and where to do them. Do you focus on one area or town and build up reputation with them? Or do you range widely? Do you focus on one faction/kingdom/thing?
And what kinds of missions do you prefer to accept? Do you reject delivery/escort missions or prefer them? And how do you balance this with exploring and fighting things you find in the wilderness?
Hopefully that makes sense. I tend to focus on a region/town to try and build up rep with a specific faction first, but I keep getting spammed with delivery/escort missions that take me waaaayy outside that area, I only typically take those now when I'm tired of an area or have taken all the quests in it.
So I guess I'm just a bit curious how you all go about this to discuss different mission strategies.

2023.06.02 12:54 Gwinty- New Datasheets

First and formost I must say that I am not the most competitive player. I mostly play casual games and with friends.
As such I was looking forwards to the new rules. A fresh start and reset for our level seemed like a good deal even if we maybe had to give up on some boated abilities.
I had no issue with the fact that Contagion became our army rule. I loved the toughness drop and had some pretty good results with it. When seeing our Terminators without Disgustingly Resilience I was a bit sad but +1 toughness and a cool ability were fine also the Flail, my favourite weapon was still there. Also Plague Bolters are a great addition.
Countary to many I liked the Leath Hits effect. Nurgles Demons always had it and for Death Guard to share that trait, while not workig with our ability, was a cool idea. Also Bolters would fire outside of the Contagion anyway.
I also liked the Plaguecaster. His profile looked good, his abilities were sweet.
The preview however seems like a punch in the gut. While there are a few cool things (Plague Crawler + Lord of Virulence seems dope, Foul Blightspawn is good too), the Plague Mariens are a major letdown: No flail, no cool "on objective ability" and no compensation for the lack of Disgustingly Resilience (like the Leagues of Votann got for their Void Armor).
No Icon was the first thing to strike me. All other Chaos Marines have their icons. But the tippen me towards the more glaring issue: Not one ability we got works with our army wide rule.
Thousand Sons have their Vortex Beast and Ahriman. Chaos Marines have their Icon and Abbadon...and we got nothing. I was hoping for at least a few ability that work with our Contagion like the Plague Companies did (big fan of The Droning). Maybe something like "Plague Marines on point double the effect" or "Plague Marines give +1 toughness to other Death Guard in the Contagion"...
So...even without being disappointed by the lack of fnp and the like, we have a huge issue here and it kinda crumbs my motivation for 10th.

2023.06.02 12:54 yeetmaster420696969 I know it's been said but this show is not reality, once you accept that, it becomes so much more

I think a fundamental misunderstanding many of the fans of this show have, is that they forget that Succession is an art-piece, not real life. Things like this don't happen simply because they're "logical" and are realistic, they happen because the writers (and all others involved) had an artistic intent for the story, characters etc. Sure they keep things relatively grounded in reality but at the end of the day this show, this art, like any other art, seeks to convey its messages and themes above all else, not simply portray reality. This leads people to "dumb down" the show, interpreting every event or decision as if they occurred in the real world and thus are inherently meaningless, when we all know this show has a hell of a lot of themes and underlying messages. This is why more or less all of the actual reliable predictions for the show came from analysis of these themes (take the King Lear allusions for example) and the things that only the audience could know would have meaning (like the Wambsgans triple play foreshadowing). This is also why much of the business jargon they spurt in this show is barely intelligible, because you're not meant to assess the show based on the material reality of the succession universe, but to see through all the bullshit they say and work out the underlying motives, messages, traumas etc of the characters through what is unsaid. To let go of "reality" is one of the first things you learn when it comes to literary comprehension, because in almost all cases of real, substantial art, "reality" is an anchor that ties you to the limits of the real world, once you let go of the importance of reality, stories are allowed to flourish and grow into something unique and inspired. This is why it's so frustrating when people say Tom "won", because he was simply more competent than everyone else. He was not, and that was certainly not why he ended up as [puppet] CEO.

2023.06.02 12:54 Caramel-Shortbread Update regarding Reddit's new API update and the future of r/HarkleSnarkle

Dear fellow Snarkers, this week, Reddit made a new announcement that might affect the platform and its users as of July 1st.
Full post about Reddit new announcement can be found here:
Summary of what Reddit Inc has announced so far, specifically the parts that will kill many third-party apps:
  1. The Reddit API will cost money, and the pricing announced today will cost apps like Apollo $20 million per year to run. RIF may differ but it would be in the same ballpark. And no, RIF does not earn anywhere remotely near this number.
  2. As part of this they are blocking ads in third-party apps, which make up the majority of RIF's revenue. So they want to force a paid subscription model onto RIF's users. Meanwhile Reddit's official app still continues to make the vast majority of its money from ads.
  3. Removal of sexually explicit material from third-party apps while keeping said content in the official app. Some people have speculated that NSFW is going to leave Reddit entirely, but then why would Reddit Inc have recently expanded NSFW upload support on their desktop site?
HarkleSnarkle will remain on Reddit for the time being, but we are trying to find new alternatives to Reddit, especially since we know some users use only third party apps like; Narwhal, Reddit is Fun, and Apollo.
We do have a HarkleSnarkle Discord server, and anyone can join, we only need that you send us a DM through modmail, or directly to my account, and we can verify your account. This is just an easy step to make Discord spam-free.
Have great weekend
Your mod team!

2023.06.02 12:53 reyeah what's up with twitter fans hating on the finale?

I have been enjoying my stay on this subreddit but in the last few weeks of the show, twitter has been the complete opposite. it’s swamped with so many aggressive tedbecca shippers who feel so entitled to their endgame just because according to them, writers left so many hints that they would end up together. the roykeeley fans’ frustrations have been understandable as that made a lot more sense (although I’d argue that it wasn’t a surprise to me that jamie still had feelings for keeley) but all the criticism hurled at the show that I’ve seen on twitter just doesn’t make sense to me - it’s as if these twitter folk have been watching a different show altogether.
I liked the ending and I appreciated how they wrapped things up and left some parts open ended. my only complaint would probably be beard’s ending as I never liked jane - however I've come to terms with it as beard being the kind of person I’ll never be able to fully understand but will always root for. what are your thoughts?

2023.06.02 12:53 Illustrious-Print802 Breakups and CPTSD

Major break-up (5 years together, first love and engaged) re-triggered my CPTSD abandonement wound and my life has spiralled out of control ever since.
It’s been 1 1/2 years and I still miss her like crazy, I struggle immensly with emotional regulation and switching between being triggered (fear, anger, loneliness) and dissociating and isolating completely.
Emotional eating, emotional spending and impulsive life decisions (work, moving, relatinships) has been so self destructive. I desperately want to break free from this evil cycle, I keep re-traumatizing myself with these self-destructing behaviours.
Have been in therapy for 6+ months, have tried meditation every day and journaling (journaling has helped the most so far), but I just can’t seem to let her go and move on with my life.
Anyone in a similar situation? I feel lost.

2023.06.02 12:53 MatsK72 Multiple issues with Meta Ads Manager and videoclips

Has anybody else here experienced recurring issues with video clips in Meta Ads Manager?
Pretty much every time I try to upload a video clip for an ad I get the ”Upload failed” message over and over and over and… yeah, like that. All of a sudden it works, and then all the previous ”failed” uploads are showing up also.
I think ”nevermind” and go on with creating a new traffic ad for my band. Then, when I come to the part where I am supposed to add media I get the prompt to crop videos for various formats. So I do that, but then everything gets stuck at ”This may take between 30 seconds and 2 minutes”. In some cases the clip shows up eventually, although not cropped. And crop options are also missing when I try to find it by clicking on each format.
Other times I don't get the cropping prompt but get straight to the preview mode, where the crop option now exists. But when I crop the image the process with ”30 seconds and 2 minutes” start over and ”locks up”. Since this makes it impossible to delete the clip and try again I end up deleting the whole campaign and have to start over.
I have a 2019 Macbook Pro with Core i9 running Mac OS Ventura. But I had these issues also with previous versions of Mac OS installed. So I don't think it is an OS issue. I also tried both Chrome and Safari, but with the same issues. I've tried on different wifi networks and through a 5G connection, just to make sure it has nothing to do with the connection. But results are the same. I also tried using my Macbook Air (M2, Mac OS Ventura) but I get the same result with that computer.
I have almost given up now. Spoke to the Meta business customer service who claimed to know nothing about this. They helped me fix a support ticket, and I have yet to hear från Meta regarding this. I don't think they know what's wrong.

2023.06.02 12:52 Cptchunk14 33 m, Week 3 update. TRT

I got on TRT 3 weeks ago. 200 mg a week. I split into 2 doses. Also on HCG. Starting to see great benefits. First I’m ready to go at any moment. Was having trouble keeping up with my girl’s sex drive. Now she taps out every time. I didn’t realize how foggy my brain actually was until I started TRT and everything seems clear now. Gained around 2.5 lbs already in 3 weeks. I can feel a constant tightening in my traps shoulders and back. I have the energy of my 19 yr old self. Negatives are my mood, small things will get me worked up although the time between getting worked up has become longer. It’s definitely an adjustment, I keep reminding myself to take a step back and go for a walk when this happens. I took photos and video before and will take some after 2.5 months. 161 lbs 5’9”, around 17% bf. All my lifts have gone up in weight. Will keep updated on any negative sides. Face is a tad bit oily but besides that my skin feels tight around my muscles all day. No acne, sleeping through the night.

My dress has arrived! Would love your feedback/thoughts!
Hi! September 2023 bride here!
My first dress fitting is next week and I'm so lucky that this dress fits nearly perfectly minus the sleeves and the shoulder area. I would like to keep working on toning my arms and body in general, but I worry that will affect the fit and I'll have to start over at my second fitting. Of course there's not much time left so I may not lose the fat but I really want to.
Should I remove the sleeves or make them removable in case they don't end up fitting properly after my 2nd fitting?
How difficult is it to make this type of dress smaller? It's a size 16 and prior to gaining all this weight I was trying on size 12 wedding dresses. I doubt I'll drop 4 sizes but I would like to go down at least a size or two.
Thanks for your thoughts in advance and any encouragement even tough love would be appreciated ❤️
