2023.06.02 13:13 upset_larynx Help! First time inviting friends over - I don’t know how to host and I’m nervous because I’m poor.
Just the title. My 18th birthday is coming up, and while they don’t know, I want to do a very small get together. Like, maybe just six or so friends. We’ve joked about how much they need to try homemade Pakistani food so I’ve been thinking that I should invite them over for lunch.
But, it’s my first time inviting friends ever and idk wtf I’m supposed to do. I don’t know how to host or entertain. I have some card games (we’ve got uno, Catan, checkers, Ludo) but I also don’t want to bore the hell out of them. I also have a ps4 so we could play a multiplayer game like COD zombies but I don’t think most of them share my gaming interests. I just have no idea how to host.
I invited a friend over once for a cup of chai and luckily, that wasn’t really awkward. We just talked a bit while I brewed the tea (ended up talking for over 3 hours!) and it was nice but this is way more people.
Plus, my family is very poor and most of their families are well off. So I’m very nervous of them seeing my house. It’s horrendously tiny and the biggest thing I’m nervous about is our table, which is one of those foldable grey tables you get from Lowe’s. One of those things that really highlight how impoverished we are. I’ve never invited friends over, specifically because it’s kinda embarrassing for them to see how poor we are and I feel bad knowing I can’t provide for them the same way they could if they had invited me over.
The table is just one of the things that bother me. Most the stuff in our house is broken because we can’t afford to fix it - the bathroom, kitchen cabinets, fridge door. And I feel nervous inviting people into my room too - because I sleep on a mattress on the floor. I have no furniture so important things like medicine bottles and books are on the floor too. Would it be rude not to invite them up in my room?
I would love to have my friends over, if only I knew how to host and they didn’t have to see my destitute living conditions. I am grateful to have all that I have, however little it may be, but I am afraid they will judge me. I know my friends are better than that, but still I am scared.
Does anyone have any tips on how to host and get over this mental hurdle?

2023.06.02 11:53 Erwinblackthorn Drawn Together: A Postmodernist Martyr Pt2
All of these characters are things we see in both cartoons and reality TV shows. Spanky Ham is considered directly inspired by a cast member from The Real World: San Francisco called David Rainey, aka Puck, who was kicked out of the house for being so unruly, with moments like fighting with a guy who had AIDS over a jar of peanut butter. I know that it sounds like I made up that sentence, but that’s something that actually happened that contributed to him being kicked out of the house. He lives on in infamy as a pig who eats sausage and shits in a cantaloupe.
But to continue in this direction, the show is heavily inspired by “real” people from reality shows. I think the way David Rainey acts is real, since later interviews show him not changing one bit. But a lot of these people are, again, fitting an archetype. A cartoony archetype, if you will. Again, this is the irony of postmodernism where the style of content was changed and yet the way of handling characters remains the same.
It’s almost as if postmodernists don’t believe in their own skepticism and it’s just a pseudo-skeptical movement that still has to obey rules or something.
Modernist cartoons hold archetypes so that people can understand the symbolism, while postmodernist archetypes are used as a way to make it easier to reproduce the same content over and over again, and sell it over and over again. This mass production that causes reproduction is exactly what Drawn Together is making fun of by causing some of the worst characters out there to still relate to established archetypes by simply attaching to a role without the means of accomplishing the same goals. Superman is brave and is a hero through action. Captain Hero got his name by fucking a hero sandwitch. Both are aliens from another planet with super powers, but Captain Hero’s arch nemesis is called Scroto, who is an evil mastermind that tricks Hero into washing his dirty old man balls over and over again. Captain Hero isn’t actually a superhero by definition, just by identity and because he looks the part by appearance. Xandir isn’t really a video game character, he’s just meant to look like one, which also happens to make him look incredibly gay. Princess Clara acts like a princess, but not a Disney princess, even though she looks like a Disney one.
I guess we can say Spanky acts like a pig and looks like a pig, but more in how he is a pig as in a greedy, dirty, or unpleasant person.
The way postmodernism causes juxtaposition that works is by simply changing how things were in modernism and using some kind of word play or changing of meaning to cause a different result. It wouldn’t work if Princess Clara was a ball of light, and it wouldn’t work if Toot was a floating brown cloud of farts; even though these could be played on the names in a surreal way. Yes, Clara means bright and Toot is a word for fart, but these wouldn’t be related to a previous subject matter, which is where intertextuality kicks in to make the whole thing work.
Intertextuality is where one text works off of another text to create a different meaning. This is done through quotation, allusion, calque, plagiarism, translation, pastiche, or parody, or interconnections between similar or related works perceived by an audience. That might sound like a lot of jargon, but all that means is that stuff in postmodernism takes from something else during modernism or prior and works off of it so that the audience can relate to it. If I didn’t know of any of these cartoons and just saw a bunch of different characters in one house, I would think this is entirely stupid and random. But since I know about the history behind it all, and the show constantly reminds us that these are parodies with 4th wall breaks, we are able to see that there is a reason for the surreal nature.
Without intertextuality, the theme is reduced to nonsense. With intertextuality, the theme is… still nonsense but now we have an understanding as to what caused it to be made and what they’re referencing. Intertextuality is not exclusive to postmodernism, but the way postmodernism handles it causes this hyper reliance on intertextuality to have it be remotely relatable. This becomes a big problem for globalization because many people are unable to understand the references when they aren’t part of the culture or circle, which can create things to be very niche. That very thing is actually why so many people simply avoid video games, or video game based movies, or anime, or flash parodies about games or anime.
This is also the reason the skits from movie reviewers like everyone on Channel Awesome never really appeal to people, because there is so much requirement that’s put as a hurdle rather than a welcome mat. Jargon and special language is a big part of postmodernism because of the focus on personal interpretation. If the reader could easily understand the writer, the reader would know that the writer isn’t saying much, so the postmodernist writer relies on open interpretation to keep the work both vague and niche. In other words, the postmodernist is determined to keep out the plebs, the sheeple, and the fogeys. The people who don’t relate to the subject matter will show themselves out and there is no reason to try to appeal to everyone because the subject matter is designed to offend and reject.
There is something strange about the idea that they could combine cartoons with reality TV, because the main appeal of reality TV is to see a real person doing something. But to have a cartoon copy reality TV is almost like watching hentai: you get the same thing as the real thing, without having to look at actual humans, and there is more ability to fulfill fetishes you never knew you had. But I’m sure even the most aggressive hentai lovers can understand that it’s not for everyone and it’s an acquired taste. I’ve been trying to figure out who exactly watches cartoons and hentai, and after a 5 minute search, I realized that cartoons need a lot of dedication to art to be appreciated after the age of 13. Usually a person doesn’t care about an adult cartoon unless they plan to make one themselves or are simply unable to grow out of it.
That and apparently 10% of japanese people are schediaphiles, meaning they are sexually and romantically interested in anime characters.
I know this is weird for me to connect a weird fetishes to a cartoon featuring necrophilia, because the two have nothing to do with each other, but we can’t ignore the idea that people can be attracted to cartoon characters. For me, I appreciate the art of a lot of media, especially adult animation when it actually tries, like Duckman. But the part of Drawn Together I appreciate is how they play with our expectations concerning each of these types of characters.
Remember before when I said Wooldoor randomly has big titties and gets his shirt wet? This is put in the show as a joke, but also as a jab at people who try to sexualize stuff with rule 34. If it’s drawn, there’s porn of it, no matter what. This is mostly to please the people who are schediaphiles, which is a surprising number. A fun fact about them is that there was a survey done and the female hentai lovers had a surprising consensus when it comes to fearing abandonment. For a woman to demand a fake relationship with a fake character means that she’s demanding the lack of a child, and mostly because she doesn’t want that child to later leave her, or for the husband to leave her.
I think this plays a lot into why a show like this is quick to resort to nudity in practically every episode, as well as the fact that they can draw stuff and already kind of have to draw nudity just by outlining something. But then there is also this thing with reality TV where nudity is almost a requirement. There are dating shows like Flavor of Love that has every chick whore themselves out so they can date a guy that looks like that Uruk-hai that Aragon beheaded. They’ll have them hang out at pools and do sexy dances, they’ll be jerking each other off in the shower, and then we’re supposed to care about who the guy choses at the end of an episode. It’s like Hell’s Kitchen but if people tried to stay in the game by unzipping his dungarees and giving his London broil a good shellacking.
I feel like Drawn Together wanted to do this, but couldn’t really afford to remove contestants every episode like Total Drama Island, so they decided to transition the plot structure to more typical sitcom fashion. We get episodes like where the cast turns into babies and do the same disgusting behavior but as babies. We get episodes where Toot has to go back to fat camp to do a reunion dance and tricks Zandir into joining her by finding cheat codes to control him. There are Transformers parodies, care bears, cabbage patch, Nesquik, Uncle Ben, there’s an episode where survivor is played with, there’s Fat Albert and Archie comic types of characters.
The show is a perfect breeding ground for making fun of basically anything drawn, which is crazy to think about because that should bring about Family Guy level of survivability. Just make fun of a cartoon and the episode is done. But, sadly, it was canceled after 2 seasons and didn’t get a chance to really spread its wings. It was deemed too offensive to continue. Advertisers and morality groups rejected it, caused it to lack profitability, and the network threw it in the trash. If the show survived to this decade, it would be canceled anyway.
Strangely, the show is so postmodernist in how it doesn’t care about anything that it can’t survive in the current postmodernist era of being hyper offended. Because postmodernism relies on subjectivity, companies can now subjectively be offended at anything, even though these companies are more than happy to pretend they stand for the LGBT or even women entering porno. There is stuff that should cancel these advertisers and morality groups, yet they are the ones doing the canceling. This is why I call the show a martyr.
It died for the freedom of being able to offend and all that happened is that the network it was on went more woke and the online environment makes it so that it can’t really be talked about. But somehow, paramount plus happily tries to advertise it. This is the company that owns nickelodeon and created that new Transformers show where the robot and a female human call themselves non-binary. This is the company that made a Blue’s Clues episode that features a drag queen singing about a pride parade. If anything, the show is only promoted on the streaming site because they want to make money from their enemies.
It just doesn’t make sense to me that a company will get more offended and advocate harder for the woke, but then happily promote one of the most offensive cartoons out there. That is, unless there’s money involved. So at the end of this long dive into Drawn Together, without talking much about what exactly happens in the show, we can conclude that the show died for our sins… just to be used by a company as a means of making money from their enemies. They wouldn’t dare make another show like it, because that would be against the woke agenda, which is weird since the show already features black and gay people.
A big problem for a lot of people to recognize is the difference between how the woke and postmodernists represent groups. The postmodernist will represent it because it’s trying to subvert things in a deconstruction way. The woke will represent as a quota and as a requirement for only particular groups. In other words, a postmodernist has no problem making a white black panther, while the woke will try to kill anyone who even thinks of committing such a haram act. Sadly, the inability for the postmodernist to care and to hold a standard is what caused everything to turn woke in barely 20 years.
The show ended in 2007, during the time of South Park’s prime and Family Guy’s revival. Apparently, the only adult cartoons left are ones that rely on hyper violence and random netflix stuff like Big Mouth, which tries to desperately retain the postmodernist legacy without entering the woke territory. I don’t remember much from that show, but I’m pretty sure it failed. Now we have people begging for postmodernism because anything is better than the slop coming out these days.
Do I think Drawn Together is a good show? Absolutely.
Would I recommend it? Absolutely.
Who is it for? Well… because it’s a cartoon, it will relate heavily to those who would watch a cartoon to begin with. But the viewer must love offensive things, and I’m not sure if that’s a dying race these days or just a silent majority that’s hiding in plain sight.
So it’s not that postmodernism makes everything terrible, and it’s not that subversion and intertextuality causes me to hate postmodernism. I simply hate the fact that postmodernism leads itself towards the woke. It creates this personal language that causes people to speak past each other and never even try to relate with each other, adding jargon on top of jargon. It’s too alienating, with the woke becoming increasingly divisive as time goes on, and as their agenda gets more rabid. We can’t enjoy a simple kid’s show without seeing their agenda in full force, because the animation department decided to get a bunch of diversity hires. I mean, who else is going to be in their room drawing pictures over and over again for months on end?
I am just glad something like F is for Family was made before things got too crazy. Something as simple as a more hardcore version of King of the Hill is a breath of fresh air, and it has Drawn Together to thank for paving the way for that type of humor. Animated characters being sexual and disturbing is funny. Animated characters trying to be funny with their sexuality is disturbing. The woke will do everything in their power to say these are the same thing. They will beg you to believe them when they pretend to be postmodernist, because in a way they are. But always remember that the woke can’t be fully postmodernist in how they pretend to be, because they are forced to care and establish moral demands from others.
Drawn Together had black characters follow stereotypes, gay characters die a million times over, and all of the women are openly slimeballs. I feel like the show perfectly encapsulated how the woke would make media, but without it being tongue in cheek or satire. I’ve honestly had trouble finding a likeable character from all of these woke shows coming out, but I’m sure I would like it if the show made it known that these were parodies of something else. But by the end of it all, I think the best thing to do is to cherish Drawn Together for its sacrifice and hope that someday a media renaissance brings us another show like it.
That or for my satire of postmodernism to take off. That would be freakin’ sweet. Part 1

2023.06.02 11:27 Comfortable_Pack8903 Bad Bathroom Etiquette
This roommate I am living with has been here for about three months now. He does things that are very annoying. They're just little things but the little things add up. When he uses the toilet paper he leaves the end of it flush (heh) with the roll. It's kind of a pain in the ass to grab onto it when I need to wipe because it's endlessly spinning. Maybe you know what I am talking about. Ok so that's pretty minor. He also just throws out toilet paper in the small waste basket. I feel like he puts 3-4 feet of paper in the basket every time he uses it. I feel like he doesn't have any respect for the amount of toilet paper he is using because he doesn't pay for it. He has also left a runny diarrhea shit in the toilet bowl without flushing. Maybe he had to shit and run *da dum tss*
He doesn't throw the trash out in the bathroom. He'll let it fill up and fill up and I will just keep pushing it down and pushing it down. He throws a big bottle of mouthwash in the small trash bin instead of taking it to the recycling in the kitchen. I took it out of the bin and threw it out for him.
He also doesn't really talk to me. At first when I met him he seemed to chat it up. Now it's like I am lucky if I get a hello back from him. I just don't even bother to talk to him. He seems like a stuck up asshole. He stares at me too which makes me uncomfortable. I don't know if it's just a language thing. Maybe he knows more Spanish than English. He seems to talk in Spanish most of the time like on the phone or with the landlord. It's not like he doesn't know English. Look I am not saying we have to be the best of friends. I like to be able to have some kind of communication with my roommate either talking in person or through text.
Another thing he does that annoys me is he has these huge plastic water jugs he drinks from and he just puts them in the recycling without crushing them down. As you can tell they fill up the bin (which no one else in the house really bothers to take out unless it's the day before garbage day.) He also throws out small plastic bags of garbage and puts them in the garbage bin instead of outside in the can. They take up a lot of volume in the bag which means I have to take out the garbage a lot when he does it. Sometimes when I go to throw something out the bin is usually full. I just don't understand how someone is so lazy that they can't go out back and throw the bag of garbage out back. It's a 1-2 minute walk outside. This guy is in shape and he's still more lazy than I am wtf. I don't know. I don't want to judge but it just feels off. Maybe he had a long tiring day at work or something. I just get tired of whenever I go to throw something out the trash bag is full. If I throw anything out it will just fall out and I'll look like the asshole because the garbage is on the floor. Even when I push it down people just keep throwing things out without taking the hint that it's full.
I don't know. Maybe it doesn't seem that bad to you. It's certainly not the worst I've had. It's more annoying to me than anything. The only time I see him out of his room is when he is cooking or eating out in the kitchen. I usually avoid him because he usually just stares and/or grunts at me. I kind of miss the other roommate. While he had some annoying quirks at least he was chill and worked with me. Also, I could actually talk to him.

2023.06.02 09:32 NeedleworkerHot7914 Persistent roach infestation in an apartment I just moved in to
I live in Texas and just moved in to an apartment on May 15th with my fiancée. Since then, it has been hell dealing with an out of control pest problem. It started on the first night and has persisted since then. During the day time, it’s maybe 5-10 individual roaches found crawling on the walls and countertops, and at night, it’s countless roaches of all sizes crawling in multiple places. We do our best to mitigate the potential to attract them, but our efforts are futile. They are abundant at night time. Kitchen, living room, bedroom, bathroom, closet. They will crawl across the countertops, underneath them, on and into the burners of the stove, into the baseboards, into improperly sealed parts of my bathtub faucet, and other places. We had pest control come out twice: the day after we moved in, and once again on May 31, but the problem seems the same if not just worse. We’ve had to sleep at my sister’s house for three nights this week and even slept in a hotel our first night because we felt unsafe. My fiancée woke up to a roach crawling on her a few nights ago. The reviews left about our complex by other tenants include multiple mentions about a relentless pest problem that for many never got resolved. We have been put on a list for pest control to come out weekly, but I don’t feel like I can safely and healthily wait for this to get resolved. I don’t feel comfortable sleeping at night and have kept the lights on constantly so as to deter them from my bedroom as much as possible. I don’t know what to do from here, and we are desperate to just live somewhere that is safe for our health, our dog, our food, and our belongings. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

2023.06.02 09:09 MirokuTsukino Some troubles i have (Husband 34)
I have read some of the posts and such to see what kind of advice others have given and decided to post about this. Iv shared my troubles once or twice but deleted after a day because i wondered what if its not a huge thing or maybe i shouldnt.
Anyway its a mix bag of things but despite this we do love each other. things are recovering after a bad falling out which is great but ill admit there are some things that bother me about how she kind of views things or does things.
One such issue is I do try to make time with her and plan out things to do together and at times we have our awsome days and its great. others i bugger it and its not the best day. but when we have our really bad days i get told i do nothing, Never plan anything, never decide things and that she is always wearing the pants. Its like anything i do is forgotten in that moment shit goes bad between us.
yet... On my days of i always hear the same question, " what do you want to do, What do you have planned. What do you think we should do today, What do you feel like doing" and dont get me wrong I am glad to get asked what i want but.... aside the fact that when we have our bad days and shit is forgotten... I dont always want to decide what we do together every single time. hell id take even just her giving a suggestion like " Hey what do you feel like doing to day? I heard about this thing btw would you be interested?" but no... barely any suggestions of ideas.. and if i ask i get " I dont know what ever you want to do. " or something along those lines.
Second issue is in romance and boy am i bad that this part ill admit. Im cheesy as frack and while it is good for making a laugh... not so good when your wanting to get your partner in the mood for intimates. I also get into my head alot, I am my own worse enemy and constantly feel i cant make work in that area.
I do get to her desire to want to be romanced and chased after and to show i want her but if i have to be honest... I dont feel like im wanted. I try to be romantic and its cheesy, I try to say i find her hot or sexy or how i like the outfit shes wearing or how she looks is a turn on. I try to say at times when she is being awsome even that i love how she is and that is attractive to me.
Yet most times i get the responses of " what this? ... its just a old shirt you seen it before" or " oh.. thanks i guess " or in case of being cheesy " that is just cheesy". Is it any wonder i have a hard time even trying to chase and be romantic when i feel like 90 percent of the time its a failed attempt as well as never really feeling like she wants to entice me? I get it though, Me male and male must hunt not be hunted but bloody damn once in awhile id like to get a sexy message or a bread crumb to entice the hunt that doesnt require it to be me to always guide the way to the end goal.
Iv talked about that with her to but never goes well. i usually get " I shouldnt have to give you the answers " and " Try figuring out things for yourself for a change" Maybe im just bloody dense and never can tell when shes dropping hints or being just silly.
Another problem i have sometimes is we will often stay up very late and most times its okay, both sides are choosing to but there are days when i say alright i got to get some rest. Work the next day and its a long shift (im a cook and usually work 10 to 12 hours) fair amount of times that ends what we are doing but other times i get ignored and she continues and I end up with 4 to 5 hours of rest and getting up 30 minutes before i have to leave.
Iv mentioned this also to her and i often get " Ya so? whats wrong with getting up 30 mins before you leave? " and " 5 hours is a good amount" .. not so much when you bike peddle 14km to get to work, work 10 or 12 hours in a hot kitchen (ac is busted) and bike home 14km again. This convo also starts fights honestly.
There is also one thing ill admit that i have not talked to her about that really bothered me. I wont go into why on her side for privacy sake but it involved me getting the fix operation so no pregnancy could happen. its a health reason on her side is all ill say. Anyway we talked about me getting it and she mentioned if i really didnt want to thats fine just no .. you know for the health reason of hers.
I said look its okay, I dont have a issue with it because its very much safe for a guy to get the snip vs a women having to get their version done. its less intrusive and for a guy its reversible if need be. This set her off in a panic mode again for health reason. And it resorted in her one sentence that still bugs me to this day. the sentence that said I would have zero control on what i do with my body after that. Because I should have zero reason to ever get it undone.
I understand it honestly. I aint going to be with another women while with her and aint gonna surprise knock her up that be horrid. but i was only stating why for a guy its way better i do it vs her and to be told what i can and cant do with my own body after .... in such a angry way she did... it bugged me plain and simple.
Now keep in mind this is just the issues im dealing with that bug me the most and im not trying to make her look evil or a bad person. just Sometimes i feel like even just trying to talk it out does nothing...

2023.06.02 08:48 Competitive_Text1914 Hells Kitchen 6th Place Season: Episode 6
Chef Gordon Ramsay welcomed his final 14 back to Hells Kitchen and said it was time to use their brains for the next challenge with both teams using letters from shopping carts to spell out 6 ingredients to create a dish with a Chef from each team using the same ingredients to make their dishes. The new look blue team quickly decided they were going to cook fish and went with salmon as their protein while the red team decided to go with fillet. Each time got a wild card ingredient each and Sabrina said she was excited to cook salmon and be on the blue team as she was sick of working with Kashia and Dannie, and wanted to win this challenge for the blue team. Josh said he was so motivated to make up for his nightmares before when he switched to the red team so it was his challenge to win and Van said he needed to get out of Hells Kitchen so hoped him and Josh didn’t bring the bad vibes to the red team. The teams dishes would be ranked out of 5 and Antonio was 1st up for the blue team and scored 3 points for overcooking rice but Eds dish fought back to score 4, with Ed saying he didn’t want to use his punishment pass yet as he intended on staying a while yet. Tara was keen to impress on her 1st challenge for the blue team and scored a solid 3 which was followed up by Zach channeling the energy of CHEF GRANT BANKS to score 4 out of 5. Sabrina was next up and scored 3 which she was disappointed with but Kanae impressed on her first dish for the blue team with 4 out of 5 and Giovanni said he was psyched to have Kanae on the team. Giovanni then finished off the dishes in style by scoring the first perfect 5 out of 5 for his salmon and the blue team scored a strong 26 out of 35. The red team were confident with Kashia starting as steak was her thing and she got them off to a strong start with 4 out of 5 and Van’s dish was described as perfect, scoring a perfect 5 and Van said he was gonna bring the pain to his old team. Dannie though served overcooked steak and scored 2 which was the lowest score so far and Josh on his debut for the red team said it would be his redemption year but he also only scored 2 out of 5 for watery greens and an undercooked steak. Elizabeth scored a strong 4 out of 5 to leave the red team needing a perfect 10 to win from the last 2 dishes but Santos served a strong dish to score 4 out of 5 and said he had faith in Nikki to score a 5 and Nikki fought back with her dish to score a perfect 5 to tie up 26:26. Chef Ramsay said it was down to the best dish of the day which was between Giovanni, Van and Nikki and it was Giovanni who scored the best dish of the day to give the blue team victory! Giovanni said this was his best day in hells kitchen yet but Ramsay asked if Dannie wanted to use her punishment pass and she said she did and was going to make Sabrina take the punishment which visibly horrified Sabrina who said that Dannie was dead to her for forcing her to do a punishment.
While the blue team and Dannie partied, Sabrina was fuming at having to do a punishment with her old team and complained the entire time which annoyed Kashia and Josh who just wanted Sabrina to get on with it. Sabrina and Josh then had an argument during the punishment with Josh guaranteeing Sabrina would go home before him and Elizabeth said no matter what happened in Hells Kitchen it was drama. Sabrina was on hot appetisers and said she it was her time to shine on the blue team but got behind on the first orders of risottos and served crunchy rice on the 1st ticket with Ramsay telling Sabrina that he gets nervous when service starts like this. Giovanni on cold appetisers led well but despite Sabrina getting her next risottos out, Antonio realised he had only served 2 lobster tails instead of 3 but quickly bounced back after a minute and Ramsay told Antonio to stop sleeping during service. Sabrina then served stewed capellini after dragging on the tickets and Ramsay furiously asked Sabrina if she had given up which Sabrina denied saying she was pissed off at the lack of communication from the blue team which Giovanni found bemusing. Sabrina continued to drag on the next capellinis but eventually with help from Kanae she finished appetisers as the blue team moved onto entrees. Entrees started well as Tara on garnish worked well with Antonio on fish, and Kanae and Zach on meat as the early orders of salmon, veal and wellingtons came out perfect. Tara though served 2 completely overcooked poached eggs for a later ticket and Ramsay asked her if she had a clue how to poach eggs which Tara said she did and wondered how that happened. Zach then got behind and despite guaranteeing a 5 star performance tonight he served raw veal and a livid Ramsay said he would start kicking people out the kitchen who were getting in the way of completing service. Tara then served well done poached eggs again and Chef Jocky came over to inspect and realised that most of the prepped poached eggs were way overcooked, to which Tara said Sabrina had prepped them. A furious Sabrina denied this and said Tara was sabotaging her and Ramsay angrily kicked both of them out the kitchen and ordered Ed from table side to rescue the garnish station. Tara was livid at being kicked out and told Sabrina she had ruined her service but Sabrina said she could have checked them and it wouldn’t have been an issue. Kanae’s first service on the blue team continued to be strong as she served more perfect meat but Zach ended up 2 minutes behind and when he finally brought his lamb to the pass it was still raw so Zach was kicked out of the kitchen as well and Zach angrily blamed Tara and Sabrina for ruining his service. The remaining Chefs finished a dreadful service and Giovanni bemoaned the fact that the blue team still couldn’t have a good service at this point.
The new look red team had 2 of their original members Kashia and Dannie on appetisers but they did not work in sync with each other at all as Dannie brought up her salads and Kashia brought up a carbonara but Ramsay said there was a risotto on order missing and Kashia said she forgot it with Ramsay screaming “RISOTTO ON!” which sent the kitchen back in reverse as Kashia had to start a new risotto which took 6 minutes. Dannie then struggled to get her salads out as she was busy checking a flatbread and ended up somehow behind Kashia and Santos on fish with Santos having to help Dannie bring her salads to the pass with Santos questioning how salads were holding the kitchen up at this point. Kashia then served a salty capellini which Ramsay spat out and Dannie then brought up a tomato salad drenched in oil and Van was wondering how they were struggling to get appetisers out 5 services in. Kashia thought she had bounced back but after serving a mushy risotto on a late ticket, Ramsay had had enough and kicked Kashia out the kitchen, saying these were ridiculous mistakes at this stage. Entrees were not much better as despite a strong start from Nikki and Van on meat, and Santos on fish, Josh on garnish was flustered from the beginning constantly talking to himself and trying to get out of the weeds. Josh then served heavily salted mashed potatoes and was completely flustered as he then brought up the garnish for salmon and chicken when the ticket was lamb and cod, and Ramsay furiously told Elizabeth at tableside to help Josh out as he needed help “BIG TIME” and Josh’s issues on garnish saw Nikki get behind and after dragging a ticket for veal she served raw veal and Ramsay said he didn’t give a fuck who went home at this point. Josh continued to get behind on garnish and Chef Christina pointed out the complete mess of Josh’s station with pans and food everywhere and said someone had to go over to help despite Josh denying he needed any help. Van told Nikki to help as he was fine running the meat station solo but Dannie had already gone over to help and when Josh asked Nikki the next ticket he said it was 2 lamb and 2 halibut and a distraught Ramsay told Josh to have a time out as that was the wrong ticket again. Ramsay then called out the order and both Nikki and Dannie couldn’t repeat back the order and were both kicked out by Ramsay and told to go for a lie down as Nikki wondered how she ended up in that mess. Josh then made his heroic return but he got behind the rest of the kitchen again and managed to burn Brussel sprouts, and at this point Ramsay had had enough. Josh was told “NO MORE, TAKE YOUR JACKET OFF, PACK YOUR BAGS AND GET OUT OF HELLS KITCHEN!!!” And despite Josh begging to stay in Hells Kitchen as his body wouldn’t let him leave, Elizabeth took over his station and Van told Josh to get out as well, as Van, Elizabeth and Santos finished service with a humiliated Josh leaving Hells Kitchen in style again.
Ramsay announced that both teams had lost and despite Josh’s ejection, he said the fat needed to be trimmed and that 2 Chefs from each team had to be put up for elimination and Santos said working with Josh one service was enough as he was a complete train wreck. Ed quickly said it was between 3 who was going up as Sabrina, Zach and Tara all got kicked out the kitchen and Zach was quick to say he was the last chef kicked out the kitchen while Tara and Sabrina can’t poach eggs but Sabrina angrily screamed she had fought back on service while Tara had no quality control and Zach has failed the team twice on the meat station. Tara admitted her fault at not checking the eggs but assumed a Chef could pre poach eggs and Sabrina continued to rant and said she wasn’t going up before Antonio asked Kanae who she’d rather work with, Sabrina or Tara and Kanae said Tara to which Sabrina stormed out and said her team was a joke and Ramsay would laugh off for nomination. Despite Dannie claiming that Kashia and Nikki should go up, Nikki was quick to say this was her 1st bad service and that this was Dannie and Kashia’s 3rd so she shouldn’t go up and Santos agreed that they were the 2 weakest in the red team left. Kashia angrily said she had a great service on the meat station last service and that Dannie should go which led to an argument between Dannie and Kashia as Van wondered if he could ever avoid drama this season. Ramsay heard from all 4 of the chefs nominated and after sending Dannie and Sabrina back in line, he eliminated ZACH for failing twice on the meat station and for failing to impress this time round. Dannie said it was crap she was even up for trying to save the service and Sabrina said she was coming for Tara tomorrow for trying to throw her under the bus.
There will be NO elimination next service and the Chefs with the top 3 votes to eliminate on each team will do Cook For Your Life. https://strawpoll.com/polls/NPgxE6BxrZ2 https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1yZAEyarJoN7y7eVxefqMECZJaQT4frCccvuZ5TdMGvM/edit#gid=0

2023.06.02 07:45 DragunovaSvetlana A mimic showing (not) on cam footage
This guy talks to gramma, gets to the kitchen to get a snack, comes back and gramma is gone, when they look at the cam footage, he's seen talking alone. https://old.reddit.com/Paranormal/comments/13wgakb/i_just_had_a_doppelg%C3%A4nger_encounter_maybe_or_a/ this isn’t made up this just happened to me like, i realised what was going on like 20 minutes ago when i went through the cam footage. i really don’t know what’s going on and if someone could explain this to me i’d really appreciate it, this is my first time making an account on reddit so apologies for any slow replies.
it started last night where i came out of my room and we have this small living room opposite my room. when i went into my living room, i saw my aunt, who was visiting for the week, laying down on the couch and watching TV. i came out to find some food, which is what i told her when she asked, and she asked if i wanted her to make anything for me and i said no it’s alright i’ll just go downstairs and make it myself.
so yeah, i went downstairs, made instant noodles for no more than 15 minutes, and then went back upstairs and put my cup down in my room. now the first odd thing, we have this mini fridge in our living room, right? so i went to go and grab a bottle of water and i saw that the blanket which my aunt was laying down with was made and the room was dark and the TV was off. my aunt’s bags weren’t there either.
now, this didnt trigger any concerns cuz i mean, she could’ve just gone upstairs to sleep where the guest room is and took her stuff with her in the span of time it took for me to make instant noodles. so, i just went to sleep and when i woke up and went down for breakfast i asked my aunt why she was up so late last night (i went out at like 2am it’s an odd time to be awake, especially because my aunt is a very early sleeper. she usually sleeps at like 7/8pm) and she said “what do you mean?”. (also all these conversations were in my native language, i’m just translating it into english).
obviously, i was like “??? what?? in the living room?” and she was like “?? i was sleeping upstairs since like 8” and i was like “no i talked to u at 2am when i went to go get food” and then i gave her a brief summary of the conversation. my mom just laughed and was like “did u see a ghost??” in a joking way. now, i was extremely confused so i told my mom to check the security footage and we saw me, standing in the living room which was dark, TV off, blanket made, talking to somebody who wasn’t there.
my aunt and mom thought this was kinda spooky but funny and they joked abt me doing drugs. now, i was scared shitless because
i am a teenager, i don’t do drugs, vape, drink, none of that shit.
i have no mental disabilities, no schizophrenia hell i’m not even depressed or have anxiety
i stay up late almost everyday and sleeping at 4am is a normal thing for me, so this wouldn’t have been sleep deprivation
so, what the fuck did i see? i know for SURE i saw what i saw i can probably describe everything in extreme detail like down to every single sense. it wasn’t a dream because the cup noodles were still in my room so what the fuck was it????? can someone help explain this to me? i’m 100% positive i wasn’t hallucinating because i’ve never had any experiences like this before and my family just think that i was tripping on weed or sum when i don’t even do drugs.

2023.06.02 07:12 sphericalduck Two days, 8 weeks post surgery
My husband and I (mid 50s) will be visiting for a couple of days two weeks from now. It will be my fifth time, his first. I will be 8 weeks out from ACL reconstruction surgery, so I should not walk as much as I normally would. 2-3 miles will be fine, and I can handle a flight or two of stairs, but I shouldn't spend too much time on my feet. My surgeon has okayed the trip as long as I avoid Times Square.
My ideas of things to do while sitting down are: see shows, eat food, ride ferries, sit outside listening to music, and sit in a comfortable place having a nice beverage. I would appreciate any advice about doing those things and any other ideas of things to do.
We're coming from the west coast, so we will be sleeping in and staying up late (we normally are up from 6am - 11pm, so what we would consider late is not really very late for a lot of people).
So far this is the itinerary:
Friday Arrive EWR at 8 am Take train to Penn Station Drop bags at Moxy times square Find food to eat 12:30 - 2:30 live piano at Bryant Park Hopefully room is ready by now, go back to hotel and rest 5:00pm dinner at Kochi 7:00pm Funny Girl 10 pm Find food and drinks
Saturday Eat bagels (Liberty Bagels is close) Take the St. George ferry from W 39th to Staten Island. Take the St. George ferry back up to Battery Park, see 9/11 memorial, eat at Eataly Take subway back to hotel Alternate idea: Take St George ferry to Staten Island, then Staten island ferry back to whitehall, then take east river ferry to East 34th. Fit lunch in somewhere. Rest at hotel, or find a nice park or something Eat dinner somewhere, probably in Hell's Kitchen, maybe Tradisyon? 8:00pm Hadestown 11pm more food and drink if needed
Sunday Need to be at the airport by 1:30 (flight leaves at 3:30 but we have brunch reservations at United's "secret" restaurant)
Any ideas, especially for places we could sit outdoors and hear live (but not too loud) music?
There's a ridiculous looking bar on the roof of our hotel called Magic Hour, should we check it out? It's not the sort of place we'd normally go but it's right there.
Thanks for any advice, and thanks for all the advice you've given other people. I've learned a lot from browsing this subreddit.

2023.06.02 07:04 salty-quackers I (18F) broke up with boyfriend (19M) of 7 months 2 days ago, now he wants me to reconsider.
I’ve felt my whole first year of college was wasted. He treats me well, is very sweet and caring and chivalrous. But at the same time he was too clingy to let me focus on my school even after multiple talks about it, but now he’s saying he’ll change, especially since we’ll both be living on campus next year (I didn’t live on campus last year) and it’ll be easier to hang out so we won’t have to hang out as much. He also didn’t want me to go to parties with my friends and had issues with my male friends i’ve been friends with for years. He said it would be fine if they would meet him, but they were willing to meet him in the beginning of the relationship and he met one of them but now they don’t want to meet him because they know he doesn’t like them. One time he even reached out to one of my friends and asked to go for a drive (alone) while i was at work. Boyfriend doesn’t seem to understand how creepy that is. My parents also think he’s creepy because of incident in the beginning of the relationship where he would just walk in the door and not announce himself and suddenly appear behind them/us out of the blue, one of these times I wasn’t even home and although I told him he could go to my house to get some stuff while I was at work. I didn’t think to let my parents know he was coming because I assumed he’d knock. He proceeded to just walk in my front door and not announce himself even as he heard my parents talking to each other trying to figure out if someone was walking into the house or not. He then just showed up in the kitchen and scared the living hell out of them. They took the battery out of our front door lock after that. He’s made me block a few guys, some of them i understand because I had fairly recent involvement with them, but once he just went on my phone and blocked a guy I dated my freshman year of high school for 2 months who I don’t talk to. He likes to try and make me jealous by bragging about girls of his past to me, and since one time it worked he uses that against me for why I can’t think he’s being too controlling. He wants to get back together with me and is giving me a few days to decide whether I want to be with him again and he’s saying he’ll change, but my family tells me to be cautious because he’s said he’ll change in the past too. I guess what i’m trying to ask is is it normal to give up the things he wants me to give up for a relationship? Did i make a mistake by breaking up with him for freedom?
PS: also sick of his constant comments about what women choose to wear. don’t go to one of the biggest party schools if you can’t handle what girls where to parties. it would be one thing if he just made a comment about it once or twice, but he’s made several. and he told me that because of my body count, i have a very slim chance of being in a happy healthy relationship, but he says he and i are in a happy healthy relationship so it’s all good. and he lectures me on staying out late, etc like he’s my dad. one time he asked if my shorts were too small for me (butt wasn’t even out, i was just sitting down so they rode up a little bit) and when i told him he’s not my dad he said “your dad wouldn’t care about the shorts you’re wearing would he?” my dad isn’t that present in my life, so this stung a little. he later told me he thought i told him he was acting like my actual bio dad and was defending himself? doesn’t really make sense to me.
TLDR: boyfriend dislikes my partying (which i never even did that often) and male friends that i’ve had for years, is clingy to the point where i can’t focus on anything else, and my parents think he’s crazy. but in the other hand he loves and cares for me and is always there for me. am i making the right choice breaking up with him?

2023.06.02 06:17 Aware-Impression8527 The Kardashians Season 3 – Episode 2
At Kim's house, Kim is still overwhelmed by Kanye's behavior and would very much like to be excluded from this narrative. She says -- for the fifth time -- that she's not going to talk about what happened with Kanye for the sake of the kids but then talks at length about what happened with Kanye and how he's hitting rock bottom and will have to figure it out on his own. (God bless Kris for not saying 'at least your ex-husband didn't kill someone and turn up on the front of Vanity Fair in a corset...') Kim says North doesn't have any sense of what is going on and only lets the kids watch Apple TV ... which I'm sure Disney was thrilled to hear. The irony, of course, is that she's talking about protecting children while she's wearing a Balenciaga hoodie.
Kim arrives at her office. She decides to serve as the creative director of the Dolce show in Milan and just hope Kourtney is too busy fucking Travis to notice.
Khloé and Scott arrive at Kim's house. They discuss the press response to the last season and rankle at the notion that they don't share enough on the show which Kim doesn't think is fair because she literally talked about Pete putting pimple cream on her nose. Scott asks them if they even really want to keep making the show ... but Kim likes filming their lives because it's a way to help and inspire people who can relate to their struggles. And Khloé likes the money.
At Kourtney's house, Kourtney finally has a business that she's passionate about: cheaply made, nutritionally benign gummy vitamins. She admits that Kim's words have been ringing in her ears since their fight five years ago but now she's building something that her kids can be proud of and a part of because it's important that kids see their mom
sell supplements that make vaginas taste better pursue her dreams.
Malika arrives at Khloé's house. Khloé had a surgery to remove the tumor from her face. Malika breaks down into tears, finally giving Khloé the response this kind of situation deserves but Khloé can't accept sympathy because that would mean actually acknowledging what is happening. Malika thinks Khloé should have a good cry but Khloé doesn't see the point and also her mood stabiliser won't allow it.
Kylie arrives at a lab in Milan. Kylie's public relations team would like me to note that it's fine that Kylie's hair is falling everywhere and she's pretending to drink foundation from a beaker because this is not the production facility -- it's only where the products are formulated. You can tell the difference because the staff at the factory aren't allowed to look at or talk to Kylie when she visits. Kylie says she took five years to be a mother and that was enough so now she wants to focus on work.
Kris arrives at Scott's house. Scott got in a car accident the day before. He's shaken but suffered only minor injuries and once the hangover had worn off he was fine. It's a totally mystery how Scott flipped his Lamborghini after hitting his neighbours' mailbox on a residential street where the speed limit is 20mph. Rather than go to the emergency room, he had his 9-year-old daughter clean the blood off his face. (I'm going to hell because the way I laughed when it cut to Kris saying 'Scott is such a great dad' right after this revelation made me laugh out loud.)
Kylie's tour of Europe continues with a trip to Harrods in London to see her make-up on display with Stormi. She's building something that her kids can be proud of and a part of because it's important that kids see their mom
prey on the insecurities of young people pursue her dreams.
Khloé and Kris are in Kris's kitchen. Kris is head-to-toe in family brands -- Travis Scott sneakers, a Good American jumpsuit, a Skims bra and then Kris pulls out her Safely cleaning spray to clean the counter. Khloé is disgusted that Kris would put her shoes on the counter but willingly kisses Tristan on the lips ... which is actually a perfect way to educate people that OCD isn't about liking things neat or flipping light switches on and off -- it's about controlling what you feel you can to make yourself feel safe. Her doctor is satisfied that the surgery was successful and that Khloé will be fine.
Dolce of Dolce and Gabbana arrives at Kim's office. Kim is brimming with confidence and insecurity. She knows what she wants to see but isn't sure if other people will want to see what she wants to see. She's also a bit worried about how Kourtney is going to feel about it but she's not going to fight with her family ... again.
Next time on The Kardashians:
Kim texts a boy. Kourtney asks a room of people if they have any drugs. Khloé is co-parenting with Tristan. Kris feels like she gets the blame for everything. Kim no longer knows what she wants to see.

2023.06.02 05:51 Pineapples_29 Not hungry at all. Too much stress.
I’ve been through hell and back this month for various reasons. I don’t feel welcome where I live. Temporarily living with the boyfriends parents and it’s increasing stressful and crushing me spirit.
They helped us move across the state. 9 hrs of driving. They took all my stuff and started yeeting it into boxes so now I can’t find stuff I need like clothes… and the mother is extremely controlling and nagging. I’ve been struggling to find a job. It’s been a month and I was also trying to save a baby chick.. didn’t work so that broke me pretty bad. The mother keeps nagging my boyfriend about me getting a job despite it being none of her business and she got her freaking money for rent so idk what he issue is with me. I feel like I’m unwanted here yet they invited us to stay with them until we got our own place. I’ve applied to multiple places just waiting. Couldn’t get a job right away due to many circumstances…
I don’t feel welcome here so I avoid the kitchen when there’s other people around and I feel awkward cause it doesn’t feel like home. I eat basically nothing as I’m super stressed and feel sick and don’t feel like it’s even my food despite me paying to be able to partake. I’m gonna get like a mini fridge and my own snacks for survival. Any tips on what to eat when you’re so stressed and sad that you can’t even cook?

2023.06.02 05:32 Babsk23582 Me (25f) has toxic ex (30m) is ruining my relationship
I first met this guy three years ago Ill refer to him as T. After a few dates we eventually started dating. We made plans once to twice a week where I would drive an hour to come see him and every time our plan would change and we stayed in and eat food. The relationship plateaued pretty quickly. We stopped trying to get to know each other. Anytime I would ask him about himself or his day he always deflected and switched topics. I started to feel like that he didn’t want to be seen with me in public and that I was secret. It started to take a toll on my mental health. (I felt like I was being hidden and he didn’t want to be seen with me) I ended the relationship after being for a few months and took a break to focus on myself and my mental health. Fast forward a few months later and I reached back out to him just to see how he was doing. I felt like I was in a better place mentally and was ready to try things again. He was in a relationship with someone else. I told him I was completely fine with being platonic and if he felt like that crossed a boundary with the current person he was seeing that if he didn’t want to talk me I would be ok with that. He told me it was fine and we rarely chatted and when we did it was just about how our day was and that was it. Eventually he stopped talking to me all together. (Months later he stopped talking to me because he still had feelings for me and couldn’t lie to his current gf at the time about the feelings he had for.) I messaged him to give him back his hoodie (I tried giving it back to him right after the initial break up but he wouldn’t take it back. The hoodie was a gift from T moms of his favorite basketball team and I didn’t feel right just throwing it away.) I was getting ready to move in with my then BF Ill refer to him as J and didn’t want to explain why I had exs hoodie after all this time. We met up just to give him the hoodie back briefly chatted about how good our relationships were going and that was it. He reached back out to me a few months later wanted to check in and see if single or if I was still in a relationship. (He just gotten out of a relationship) I told him if anything it would have to be strictly platonic because I was in a relationship and if he couldn’t keep it that way then it was be best if we didn’t talk. He agreed that it would be platonic. We briefly chatted a few times a months just normal how are you and what not messages. (T later told me that he never really wanted to be just platonic friends and was just waiting for his moment when my relationship with J would be over) My relationship with J eventually ended we were just at different stages of our lives. T and I started to talk more and it lead to more flirtatious conversations. Unfortunately I am currently locked into my lease contract with J and all the bills are in my name. I can’t really move or afford to pay double rent. J and I are currently roommates and sleep in separate rooms. As T and I got more serious I started to talk to J about T and see how things would work if one of us wanted to bring someone home. J got really upset and became very toxic and started to make my home life hell. He was constantly stressing me out whether if was starting random fights or being late on his share of the rent. It got so bad sometimes to the point of where I couldn’t afford groceries. I started to get so stressed and overwhelmed it physically made me sick. One time I had gotten so sick I was put on bed rest for a week. I talked to T about J and how my home life took a horrible turn. What used to be simple conversations with T just turned into how to get J out the house or how he was just going to have to deal with the fact that I moved on. In theory it sounds great but for my health and mental well being it was a really bad idea. Legally I couldn’t get J out or even evict him and unless he physically hurt/abused or threaten me there wasn’t much I could do. I decided that I just needed a few days away from everyone so I told T I needed some space. T later texted me saying that he was going to move on. I finally responded to T two days later saying that I respect his choice and that if he really wanted to find someone else he could. T and I talked and he said he just said it in the heat of the moment. T and I talked about being a family and me being his wife. My health got so bad from the amount of stress I was going through I ended up in the hospital twice in one week. After my second hospital visit I decided to break things off with T temporarily while I focused on my getting my health in better place so T and I could be in better place. He said he understood and would by my side and loved me no matter what. When I first said I needed a break I thought it would take a month at most. During the time away from T my home life did improve a little J started keeping to himself more and ignoring me. Which I couldn’t be any happier about. Also during that time I became even sicker during those months I had a miscarriage and bleed on my period for almost two months. (I’ve been on birth control for a long time and didn’t even know I was pregnant till the miscarriage happened.) I also got another diagnosis about my health. I spiraled quickly. I only had a miscarriage one other time in life and when I was sexually assaulted by someone I knew. I felt so alone I didn’t really have any friends to talk to so I just dealt with everything by myself. I spent days, weeks thinking about the miscarriage. Do I tell T about the miscarriage? Is it worth it? He wasn’t really ready for kids. We weren’t really ready for kids and there was a lot of things I was still working through. T and I had things of our own that we needed to work such as creating a more stable relationship that wasn’t so messy and finding a place together. I couldn’t stop thinking about T. I missed him. Seeing him. Being around him they way he made me feel safe. I finally deiced to reach out to T because I felt like I was in a semi better place. I wanted to work on us if there could be an us. I still wasn’t sure if I should tell him about the miscarriage. I found myself smiling watching in name pop up on my phone. T and I conversation were ok. T did mention that he was upset and felt betrayed by me. Apart of me felt hurt by this because I felt like he felt like I should have put him before my mental and physical wellbeing. One day while messaging T I forgot my phone in kitchen and J found out that I was talking to T again and had a complete melt down. I made and impulsive decision that I deeply regret and told T that it might be better if I wasn’t in his life. I just started to get better and couldn’t go back to toxic home life. I didn’t want to end up in the hospital again. My doctors were worried about the long-term effects of the stress. The amount of stress I was under it was going to kill me. I don’t want to jeopardize my health just to be happy but I don’t want to miss out on the guy I love. I tried reaching out to T later that day to talk about everything but he didn’t respond. I thought maybe he just needed space so I reached out a few days later then a few more and a few more till finally a month has passed and I called him and left him a voicemail asking him to talk. He said he wants nothing more to do with me and that I am too toxic to be with. Random things I didn’t mention T said the choice was always me. If I would have mentioned having feelings for him when I gave him the hoodie back that he would of left his current relationship for me. If he could define the person he wanted to be with it would be me. He held onto old pictures of me from the first time we dated even after he got a new phone. Apart of me waited so long to reach back out to him because I wasn’t in the best space to complete commit to him with a relationship. I was also ashamed and felt like failure because I wasn’t completely better. He doesn’t’ know that J being toxic again is reason why I made the impulsive decision to push him away.) I guess I’m just looking on advice or anything thoughts. I still love T greatly.

2023.06.02 05:32 LazyGuy6980 My Life so Far
This is my first ever post, forgive me for the long ass essay lmao
Ok, how do I begin lol. This is going to be my entire life written down. I've never done this before so you're the first.
I don't know why, but for as long as I've remembered, I've never been truly happy. The only time i had some form of real happiness was kindergarten and earlier. When life was simple. Living life with no worries, just you and mom making snowmen in my grandparents backyards, having the time of my life. No matter how much time passes or where I'm or what I'm doing, I've always had this negative energy. It layed at the back of my mind up until middle school. Up until that point, it had slowly been creeping up from my subconscious to my conscious mind. I don't have many memories of that time and nothing notable happend.
I remember when i was young, I used to hit myself when i got stressed or upset. I stopped doing that a while ago though. Notable things that happend during elementary school is when I accidently killed my dog in second grade. I was walking around in the kitchen, when my teo week old puppy started chewing on my sock. We got him by my mom's coworkers dog having puppies. His name was Brody. We named him that because my mom almost named me Brody until my grandmother said it was a bad name. Anyways, I was walking with this dog chewing on my foot, and I didn't do anything about it. To this day, I still don't know why I didn't do anything, but I tripped backwards, stepped on him, broke his ribs and he bled to death infront of my eyes. I still have the vivid image in my mind, his beautiful little brown body in a pool of growing blood, shaking violently, desperately trying to move. I don't know how long I cried for, only looking at grandma through teary eyes. It affected me for a long time, gave me a fear of small animals because I was afraid that I would hurt another one. I'm over it now.
Another thing that happend was one time my mom left me by myself in Walmart. She came back after a few minutes but i was crying wondering where she was. Turns out she was in the bathroom lol.
I also remember going through a lot of babysitters when I was a kid. Most notably would be my uncle. He wasn't actually my uncle, just my dad's good friend. Anyways, he had bipolar, and did not take medication. Naturally, we would get into screaming matches with each other. It's funny, a ten year old screaming and cussing at a grown man lmao.
Mid way through third grade, I moved to another state when I was eight years old. Another thing that happend was when I was ten and learned that my dad isn't my biological father. I think that I started to very slowly drift away from my dad after that. I still love him and always will, it's just that it's getting harder to see him as my dad and not a regular person. That sounds fucking horrible doesn't it.
In fifth grade, my mom and dad decided to invite one of their Coworkers who was seventeen years younger than my dad ivy their relationship. That lasted for a few months, up until my dad divorced my mom, staying with the second girl. My mom was always skinny, but she lost a lot of weight during that time.
Now that I think of it, I can't remember a single memory of my mom smiling during that time. On top of that, but she had to singlehandedly raise three spoiled kids on her own. Whenever I think about that time, I remember how I never even asked how she was doing, how her day was, or anything really. It makes me feel like a total piece of shit. My mom did so much for us, even when she was struggling 1000x worse than us. I have always tried to be kind to people around me, neglecting my own needs to put others first, and yet I didn't do that to the people who loved me the most. I think I blocked most of my memories out because mom and dad fought a lot. I can't remember, but my little brother sure does. I only learned this recently, but when they would fight, my dad would call my mom names and insult her. I think my perception of dad changed after that.
Anyways, I have a tough time in middle school. It was way harder than elementary, and the work load was too much for me. I think that's when I started procrastinating. All the work was stressing me out, so I just waited and waited, forgetting about the work. Then I would have a mountain of missing work, which only added onto my stress.
All this combined with the fact that I used to be incredibly sensitive, the stress and anxiety from school, and everything else going on was like the perfect gateway for all the negative energy I've been storing up to be let free on my conscious mind. It went as well as you could imagine. I would cry all the time. Multiple times a day. I felt every negative emotion you could possibly imagine. I had no one to really go to, so I went to my mother. Looking back on it, I know why she didn't do much. She was in a dark place herself, working her hardest to put food on the table. She just couldn't be there for me all the time. I also told my dad about how I'm feeling, but he said I was just stressed. He always had a hard time understanding mental health. The pandemic didn't affect my mental health. In fact, I think it made it better for a time. But good things must ask come to an end.
These awful feelings only got worse over time. They got better during the summer, most likely because of no school. Now we move onto 8th grade. Worst. Year. Ever. I'll skim over most of the details. But all my feelings were amplified ten fold. I was suicidal for a long time, almost went through it a few times. I had panick attacks daily. Every time I looked at an assignment, I started hyperventilating By the end of the year, I had 85 missing assignments, and awful depression. When it came time for new years, I resolved to stop crying. Over time, I've stopped feeling. I'm kind of emotionally numb.
That's brings me to now. It's now hard to cry, I can only make myself misty eyed every once in a while. Things I would normally freak out, cry, and have a panick attack over, are now just meh. I've come to realize that I don't want to die, I just don't want to exist anymore. It's hard to describe, but I just desire not to exist anymore.
Throughout my life, I've tried to put others before myself. Recently though, it's been hard to do. I feel like I'm turning more into an asshole as time goes on. I wish I could be kinder, but it's so hard. Even talking to people for more than a few minutes can be exhausting. It's hard to be all optimistic, caring, and supporting to people. I wish I could be there for everybody all the time. I wish I could find the right words to say. I wish I had the energy to pick up the phone and talk. I just can't seem to find any of that anymore.
I've also come to one more realization. I always used to think that I lacked any romantic attraction to anybody, but I don't think that's the case. I just don't allow myself to love anybody romantically. When my brain starts thinking of somebody romantically or sexually, it thinks it's bad to see people, especially friends that way, so it just buries those feelings deep down so I won't ever feel them. Nothing else. I don't know how you're supposed to fix that, but I can live with it. I've lived with it for over fifteen years so far, I think I can live the rest of my life like this. That was until the one person I've ever liked confessed their feelings to me. I was so damn happy, but then a few days later they said they weren't ready for a relationship, which is completely understandable, but it broke me. I get so nervous everytime I see them, and I can't seem to suppress these feelings. It's awful.
As you can probably see by now, me and my emotions don't have the best relationship. I've always hated my emotions as they only bring me nothing but pain. It's always been hard to talk about them too, because I feel what people might think of me when I express them. I am very vulnerable to negative comments and criticism, which makes expressing myself very difficult. I make my own opinions based on others, my personality is made from others, and I conform to any and all standards. I also get really attached to people. I've lost friends in the past, they all kind of drifted away and we stopped talking. I always take that really hard, and I always doubt my self worth. It took me a year to stop feeling awful for friend in particular. We were one super close, I would talk to them everyday for hours, but over time we talked less and less until eventually we stopped interacting at all. Even if there is just a few days where I don't talk with a friend, I end up sad.
I might just be broken. I've lived a wonderful life, and have amazing people in my life, I just can't ever be happy. I just don't have the energy anymore. I barely have the energy to live. I'm just a lonely, lazy, miserable asshole. That's all I am. I'm afraid to tell anybody this, I couldn't say why. I've dug this hole so deep, that I can only see darkness ahead in any and all directions. The only way I can go is down, until I hot rock bottom. Until I have no reason to do anything anymore. Until everything becomes numb. Then fall off the face of the planet, to be forgotten like so many before me have. Like billions have throughout this world history. I fucking hate my life. I hate myself. I hate this awful, disgusting world we live in. And there's no way out. And most of all, I hate that I feel this way. I should be happy, willing to to people how I feel, not afraid to tell others and seek help if I must. I should be able to get good grades, to make my parents proud, to be an amazing big brother. But I can't and I don't know why. Or maybe I can, but there's part of me that is just so rotten that I can't even care for anything. People have had it far, far worse than me, worse than I could even imagine and they're fine. So why not me? Why am I like this? Why am I so fucking miserable? Maybe I've done this to myself, I honestly don't know.
Me Overthinking Shit
One of the only things that makes me have strong, negative emotions is the feeling that something is missing. It's incredibly hard to describe, but I'll do my best. Sometimes, on those cloudy days, sitting by the window, and have nothing to do, I get a feeling that something is missing, but I don't know what. Whatever it is, it's something not really physical, past any object. It feels like something greater, something so simple, so important, yet I cannot think of what it is, and it's always it of my grasp. When that feeling comes over me, that something is missing, all I want to do is die. All I want to know is what is missing, but the way things are going, I just know I'll never find it. I hate that. I hate that so much. I have that feeling for up to a day, and it's kind of a haze. It's like all the colors on the world are dull.
It's like I'm not really living, just existing, like the grains of sand on the beach, the snowy mountains across the horizon, like the moon that orbits the earth, as the millions of stars, planets, and other celestial bodies that orbit around the milky way galaxy, with a magnificent supermassive at its center, constantly devouring material, as all the galaxies move around endlessly in the vastness of space. I'm not there, in the moment, I'm just existing, along with the rest of everything that has, is, and ever will be. Just an insignificant organism, drifting along our tiny blue home that we call earth.
Everyone that I've ever known, that you've ever known, that anybody has ever known, every living thing, every hope, every dream, every fight, every birth, every death, every word ever spoken, every plea of desperation, every good act ever done, every sin ever committed, every feeling ever felt, every story ever told, every good person, every bad person, every king, every violent dictator, every oppressive ruler has all occurred right here, on this world, hurtling through space, with no destination, until the sun expends, engulfing the inner planets of our dollar system and shrinks again, until the earth falls out of orbit, left to freeze in the vacuum of space, left to have no home ever again, until the expansion of the universe reaches a critical level, and everything gets ripped apart down to the subatomic level, and only black holes remain, only to evaporate into the sheer nothingness. Now I'm here to ponder, does anything truly matter?
When you boil everything down, no, nothing really matters. So what do I do? What am I supposed to do? Live a nice comfortable life knowing everything is meaningless and that is the beauty of everything? Should I do whatever the hell I want, knowing that no matter what actions I take, it will never truly matter in the long run? That we all face the same destination no matter what? Should I give up on this miserable existence? I always thought that there was no objective meaning to life, that you made your own meaning to it, but I can't seem to find mine. I just wish I knew my purpose.
When I think about past me, the me when I was young, the me that was truly living, the me full of energy, the me who was curious about everything and wanted to absorb knowledge like it was my last meal on earth, I almost feel bad for him. How he turned out. The shitty person he is now. But I can't feel bad for him, because that means I would feel bad for me.
If you're reading this, then I'm sorry. That I sent this to you. The last thing you need is to hear other peoples problems. This is the story of my life so far, hopefully things get better, for me, and everybody reading this, and thank you for reading,
With all my love, LazyGuy :)

2023.06.02 05:30 Babsk23582 Me (25f) relationship is getting ruined by toxic ex (30M)
I first met this guy three years ago Ill refer to him as T. After a few dates we eventually started dating. We made plans once to twice a week where I would drive an hour to come see him and every time our plan would change and we stayed in and eat food. The relationship plateaued pretty quickly. We stopped trying to get to know each other. Anytime I would ask him about himself or his day he always deflected and switched topics. I started to feel like that he didn’t want to be seen with me in public and that I was secret. It started to take a toll on my mental health. (I felt like I was being hidden and he didn’t want to be seen with me) I ended the relationship after being for a few months and took a break to focus on myself and my mental health. Fast forward a few months later and I reached back out to him just to see how he was doing. I felt like I was in a better place mentally and was ready to try things again. He was in a relationship with someone else. I told him I was completely fine with being platonic and if he felt like that crossed a boundary with the current person he was seeing that if he didn’t want to talk me I would be ok with that. He told me it was fine and we rarely chatted and when we did it was just about how our day was and that was it. Eventually he stopped talking to me all together. (Months later he stopped talking to me because he still had feelings for me and couldn’t lie to his current gf at the time about the feelings he had for.) I messaged him to give him back his hoodie (I tried giving it back to him right after the initial break up but he wouldn’t take it back. The hoodie was a gift from T moms of his favorite basketball team and I didn’t feel right just throwing it away.) I was getting ready to move in with my then BF Ill refer to him as J and didn’t want to explain why I had exs hoodie after all this time. We met up just to give him the hoodie back briefly chatted about how good our relationships were going and that was it. He reached back out to me a few months later wanted to check in and see if single or if I was still in a relationship. (He just gotten out of a relationship) I told him if anything it would have to be strictly platonic because I was in a relationship and if he couldn’t keep it that way then it was be best if we didn’t talk. He agreed that it would be platonic. We briefly chatted a few times a months just normal how are you and what not messages. (T later told me that he never really wanted to be just platonic friends and was just waiting for his moment when my relationship with J would be over) My relationship with J eventually ended we were just at different stages of our lives. T and I started to talk more and it lead to more flirtatious conversations. Unfortunately I am currently locked into my lease contract with J and all the bills are in my name. I can’t really move or afford to pay double rent. J and I are currently roommates and sleep in separate rooms. As T and I got more serious I started to talk to J about T and see how things would work if one of us wanted to bring someone home. J got really upset and became very toxic and started to make my home life hell. He was constantly stressing me out whether if was starting random fights or being late on his share of the rent. It got so bad sometimes to the point of where I couldn’t afford groceries. I started to get so stressed and overwhelmed it physically made me sick. One time I had gotten so sick I was put on bed rest for a week. I talked to T about J and how my home life took a horrible turn. What used to be simple conversations with T just turned into how to get J out the house or how he was just going to have to deal with the fact that I moved on. In theory it sounds great but for my health and mental well being it was a really bad idea. Legally I couldn’t get J out or even evict him and unless he physically hurt/abused or threaten me there wasn’t much I could do. I decided that I just needed a few days away from everyone so I told T I needed some space. T later texted me saying that he was going to move on. I finally responded to T two days later saying that I respect his choice and that if he really wanted to find someone else he could. T and I talked and he said he just said it in the heat of the moment. T and I talked about being a family and me being his wife. My health got so bad from the amount of stress I was going through I ended up in the hospital twice in one week. After my second hospital visit I decided to break things off with T temporarily while I focused on my getting my health in better place so T and I could be in better place. He said he understood and would by my side and loved me no matter what. When I first said I needed a break I thought it would take a month at most. During the time away from T my home life did improve a little J started keeping to himself more and ignoring me. Which I couldn’t be any happier about. Also during that time I became even sicker during those months I had a miscarriage and bleed on my period for almost two months. (I’ve been on birth control for a long time and didn’t even know I was pregnant till the miscarriage happened.) I also got another diagnosis about my health. I spiraled quickly. I only had a miscarriage one other time in life and when I was sexually assaulted by someone I knew. I felt so alone I didn’t really have any friends to talk to so I just dealt with everything by myself. I spent days, weeks thinking about the miscarriage. Do I tell T about the miscarriage? Is it worth it? He wasn’t really ready for kids. We weren’t really ready for kids and there was a lot of things I was still working through. T and I had things of our own that we needed to work such as creating a more stable relationship that wasn’t so messy and finding a place together. I couldn’t stop thinking about T. I missed him. Seeing him. Being around him they way he made me feel safe. I finally deiced to reach out to T because I felt like I was in a semi better place. I wanted to work on us if there could be an us. I still wasn’t sure if I should tell him about the miscarriage. I found myself smiling watching in name pop up on my phone. T and I conversation were ok. T did mention that he was upset and felt betrayed by me. Apart of me felt hurt by this because I felt like he felt like I should have put him before my mental and physical wellbeing. One day while messaging T I forgot my phone in kitchen and J found out that I was talking to T again and had a complete melt down. I made and impulsive decision that I deeply regret and told T that it might be better if I wasn’t in his life. I just started to get better and couldn’t go back to toxic home life. I didn’t want to end up in the hospital again. My doctors were worried about the long-term effects of the stress. The amount of stress I was under it was going to kill me. I don’t want to jeopardize my health just to be happy but I don’t want to miss out on the guy I love. I tried reaching out to T later that day to talk about everything but he didn’t respond. I thought maybe he just needed space so I reached out a few days later then a few more and a few more till finally a month has passed and I called him and left him a voicemail asking him to talk. He said he wants nothing more to do with me and that I am too toxic to be with. Random things I didn’t mention T said the choice was always me. If I would have mentioned having feelings for him when I gave him the hoodie back that he would of left his current relationship for me. If he could define the person he wanted to be with it would be me. He held onto old pictures of me from the first time we dated even after he got a new phone. Apart of me waited so long to reach back out to him because I wasn’t in the best space to complete commit to him with a relationship. I was also ashamed and felt like failure because I wasn’t completely better. He doesn’t know that J being toxic again is reason why I made the impulsive decision to push him away.) I guess I’m just looking on advice or anything thoughts. I still love T greatly.

2023.06.02 05:08 storiesof-adreamer 25 [F4M] #Nashville/USA - Looking for my special subby boyfriend for a GFD long term relationship!
(If this post is still up, I'm still looking!)
Hey there. I really want to develop a female led/slight gentle femdom relationship with a special guy.
When a lot of men see the term "female led relationship," they think, "Oh, the woman will make all the decisions with no input on what I think/want."
Are there dynamics like that? I'm sure there is. Personally, I'm not looking to be "the boss" or "above" you in any way. I want us to be equal... but have you give up control to me in a few other ways. :)
What do I mean? Keep reading on!
● ABOUT ME ●
You can call me Dreamer for now. (I'll tell you my real name once we get to know each other) Please do NOT call me Miss, Master, Dominatrix or Ma'am.
I'm 25 years old and an INFJ-T. I live in Nashville, Tennessee, USA (AKA Music City) and I'm on Central Standard Time. I'm a Black woman and I stand 5 feet, 7 inches tall. My eyes are brown and I wear glasses. I don't have any tattoos or piercings at the moment.
One thing I want to mention is that I'm plus size, AKA a bigger girl. I'm undergoing a vertical sleeve gastrectomy in two months to lose the excess weight I have in a sustainable and permanent way. I'm ready to regain my body and be healthy and confident again. I'd love to have you by my side throughout my journey!
As far as personality goes, I'd describe myself as empathetic and sweet. I like to help others as much as I can. In person, I tend to be rather shy at first. People tend to mistake that for weakness or gullibility. I'm anything but; my strength lies in introspection and quiet observation. I notice every nuance of a person's actions, words, body language, vibe... my intuition hasn't steered me wrong yet!
● INTERESTS ●
I won't go into detail on every single interest that I have but I'll talk about my biggest ones that you'll likely hear me mention the most.
I've been writing since I was six years old, but I started taking it seriously around 13 years old. All in all, it's been 19 years. As of right now, I primarily write Fanfiction but in the past, I've written short stories, poetry and I even tried to learn how to write screenplays at one point.
I wrote my first full-length book in 2018/2019. I started the sequel in early 2020, but I'm still working on it. I lost a LOT of inspiration during the pandemic but I'm finally writing for it again.
If you also enjoy writing, I'd love to "talk shop" with you and maybe we can exchange some of our past works.
Music has gotten me through a lot over the years. Yeah, yeah, I know everyone says that. But it truly has. It's shaped my life and introduced me to a lot of things and people that I probably never would've done or met otherwise.
There's no point in saying I like xyz genre because I've listened to pretty much everything. The only ones I truly hate are country and gangster rap. If you want specifics, though... I've been a HUGE twenty one pilots fan for 9 years. (I have more merch, stickers and other random shit than I care to admit to lmao) I also love other artists like Amber Run, Purity Ring, Phantogram, Daughter, Lorde, OneRepublic... plus tons more.
I've always had this dumb idea of a guy and I confessing to each other through playlists with songs that make us think fondly about each other...
God, I'm single.
I've been into photography for 10 years and I've had my DSLR for eight years. (It's definitely the camera version of 'Ol Reliable) I enjoy nature and portrait photography. I'd love to show you some of my work and get your thoughts on it.
TV genres I like: Animation (like Spongebob), comedy, drama, documentaries (disaster and crime ones are my favorites), true crime (like Forensic Files), old sitcoms (like Sanford and Son) and cooking and baking competitions/reality TV (like Kitchen Nightmares US and UK, Hell's Kitchen, Master Chef, The Great British Baking Show, etc)
Movie genres I like: Animation, drama, comedy, action, psychological thrillers and science fiction. I thoroughly loved The Greatest Showman so one could say I like musicals but it's the only one I've seen so not sure if that really counts. Comic book movies are pretty alright too, but I really haven't seen anything past the first Avengers movie lmaooooo.
I say this as unpretentiously as possible, but I haven't seen most popular TV shows or movies that your average person likes. I think the last "popular" thing I watched was that Jeffrey Dahmer series on Netflix. (mainly out of morbid curiosity because everyone was freaking out about it... and because I think Evan Peters is a cutie) I only saw a few episodes and then forgot to watch the rest of it, but it wasn't as horrific as everyone was saying. Maybe I've watched too much Forensic Files and I'm desensitized lmao.
✨️Video and computer games✨️
Video game genres I like: Adventure, action-adventure, RPGs & JRPGs, Strategy... basically anything that is relatively fun and not horror related.
Some of my all-time favorites: Kingdom Hearts II, Ratchet and Clank, Journey, Final Fantasy VII and Final Fantasy X.
As far as computer games, the only thing I play on a regular basis is The Sims 2 and The Sims 4. As a kid, I loved simulator and time-management games; some old favorites are the RCT series, Simcity: Rush Hour, the first four Diner Dash games, the Delicious series and Burger Shop 2 (which I still have on my computer actually lmao)
✨️Other random interests✨️
Art, traveling, people watching, researching random topics on Wikipedia and watching YouTube, especially channels with old shows and movies.
☆ CAREER ☆
My last position was working nights at a psychiatric hospital. I'm looking for something new at the moment.
☆ ET CETERA ☆
I really love dogs and cats. I have three cats and they're little demons but I love them to death. I also love small animals like ferrets, bunnies and snakes!
My main love languages are words of affirmation, quality time and gift giving/receiving. To be honest, though, there's elements of each language that I enjoy or relate to in one way or another.
I don't smoke and I drink every so often. Otherwise, I'm vaccinated and DDF.
● ABOUT YOU ●
I'm looking for a guy between the ages of 23-33 years old. I might
be willing to talk to someone within two years in either direction (so 21 min and 35 max) if you meet all my other preferences/wants. If you're younger than 21 or older than 35, though, please don't contact me.
Please be single and emotionally available. I won't interact with anyone already in a relationship or married (even if you're separated or in a "dead bedroom," you're STILL married) and I'm especially not interested in anyone poly/ENM. I'm definitely 100% monogamous.
Hair is super important to me! I prefer medium length to long hair, something I can stroke and play with a lot lmao.
I have a REALLY big soft spot for blue and/or doe eyes, but don't let that deter you. If you have kind eyes, I'll fall in love with them, no matter their color!
I tend to like softer facial features and even softer personalities. Are you super masculine in public but a total softie in private? Lovely! Are you less masculine but a little more feminine? Great! Are you androgynous or otherwise fall somewhere in between? I can dig it!
Key traits that I like in a guy include, but are not limited to: Being sweet, gentle, empathetic, considerate, an active listener, exceptional at communication and willing to go the extra mile for those that you love, be it family, friends, your partner, etc.
With that being said, it's important that you have time for me. I'm not expecting us to talk 24/7 but if you're always too busy to talk to me, this won't work. At some point, I'd like for us to also talk on the phone as our schedules permit, of course.
As I mentioned in the beginning of this post, please be from the USA/North America and willing to meet and get to know each other in person ASAP.
● WHAT I'M LOOKING FOR ●
It's important to me that you're an active listener; what I mean is that you'll make an effort to listen to what I have to say and respond to it accordingly. If I tell you my thoughts on a matter or ask you a question or give you a compliment etc etc, please respond to it. It makes me feel so sad and small if I feel like my thoughts or opinions are not important/relevant.
I can tell pretty quickly if someone is genuinely interested in me or not. Like I said before, I notice everything lol.
I mentioned earlier how one of my love languages is words of affirmation. One of the ways I enjoy that is through compliments. I'm not looking for you to worship the ground I walk on, but being told "You look beautiful" or "When you do xyz, that makes me really happy" makes me feel SO seen and appreciated.
It's incredibly frustrating to send a picture of myself and get a lukewarm response in return. :(
Affection is also super important to me. Holding hands, hugging, kissing, cuddling, touching... all the cute couple shit. I want you to touch me, not in a pervy way, but in an affectionate way. I want to stroke your hair while I hold you close... little things like that make me incredibly happy.
Keep in mind, everything I want from you, I'll give to you in return. I'll always listen and acknowledge you, give you compliments, shower you in affection, plus whatever else makes you feel wanted and appreciated as a person and in a relationship.
● OUR DYNAMIC ●
I always want you to have a choice and be able to voice your opinion. I will never degrade or boss you around in general, but especially when it comes to your personal choices. I'm a switch that used to be a predominant sub and believe me, I've had doms tell me before, "I make the decision on what you wear, what to eat, who you hang out with, etc etc... because I'm your dom and what I say goes."
Some people may like that. More power to them. But I'm not like that. I want you to feel free to express yourself. If you want my opinion, I'll give it to you, of course. But my job is to build you up and support your decisions, no matter how small!
Again, I'm not looking for you to kiss my ass. I'd love for you to take the lead on most decisions (with my input, of course). But I want you to also have a "service" attitude; whether that's helping out with household chores or surprising me with a massage after work or giving me flowers "just because" or helping me paint my toenails lol... just to name some examples. The sky's the limit.
That extends to "the bedroom" as well. I want my pleasure to be just as important to you as yours is to me.
In short? I just want to feel doted on and taken care of. I want to be the most important person in your life and you be the most important person in my life. I want to make you feel special and praise you and tell you how much you mean to me. And I want the same in return. 💓
● "KINKS" ●
This is inevitably gonna come up at some point. I'll say when it comes to my "kinks" (if you want to call them that) I like:
Teasing, edging, telling you when you can cum and begging me for it (I believe it's called orgasm control/denial), moaning, praise, blindfolds, eye contact, body worshiping (you and me), breast worship, oral, fingering and using toys on you...
Been a little curious about pegging someone one day. We'd have to build up to it, of course, because I don't want to hurt you. If you're not into that, though, don't worry! It's definitely not a requirement.
Things I do NOT like (or hard limits) are:
Humiliation, degradation, anything that causes you or me physical, emotional and mental harm, blood, pee, scat, vomit, diapers, CNC, ageplay, raceplay, hitting, slapping, choking or anything else illegal, unethical or otherwise unloving.
● IN CONCLUSION... ●
If you read all of this, good job! Here's a cookie, hope you like chocolate chip. 🍪
Seriously, though, I can't name every little thing I want. Despite the length of this post, I'm not trying to play Build-A-Boy. I realize you have your own caveats and that's totally fine. Let's get to know each other and see what happens. All I ask for, again, is that you want a serious, longterm relationship and not view me as just some sort of "kink dispenser."
Chats or DMs are fine. When you send me a message, please include the following...
• Name or alias • Location • Age • Height, body type, hair cololength, eye color • Your interests/hobbies • Whether you're a sub or a switch • What you're looking for out of a relationship and something (or things) you really enjoyed about my post • A clear, SFW picture of yourself • Your current favorite song (so I know you actually read through all of this) • Whatever else you want to add to catch my attention. The more you can match my "detailed energy," the better.
I won't reply to those who ignore my preferences or the message requirements above. If you send me nudes/dick pics/sexting or FWB requests/rude messages, you will be blocked and reported.
Thank you so much for reading this, and I hope you have a good night!
(P.S. I don't use Snap, Kik, Telegram, WhatsApp and whatever else. I use Discord and I only give my cell number out to people that I'm comfy with.)

2023.06.02 05:07 Blysse102598 I’m beginning to hate my home stay family.
Tl;dr: Sandra is a disgusting alcoholic and I hate spending time with her. Also no real names are used.
They’re not a family exactly, just a husband and wife. I know the husband (Alan) because he’s my grandad’s brother in law and him and his wife (Sandra) live in Okinawa where I’m staying until October.
My original plan was to study Japanese in Kobe because I have a native friend who lives there and she agreed to help me out. But through the advice of my family and Alan offering to let me stay with him for free, I decided to come to Okinawa and I’ve been here since October 2022.
I get along pretty well with Alan, I have no real complaints about him outside of just quirks one would expect to notice when you live with someone for a while. It’s Sandra that I keep finding myself disliking more and more.
For one, she is a very heavy drinker. At first I didn’t think it was a big deal because her logic was “I work hard, I deserve some wine at the end of the week.” But after a few weeks, it became very apparent that she’s either an addict or just doesn’t know when to stop once she starts and it’s very much a daily habit.
Sundays are her worst days when she can barely walk and starts saying hurtful things. The apartment is small and the walls are thin, so I hear hers and Alan’s arguments very frequently and until last week, I stayed out of the way. I’ll get to that later.
When she’s drunk, which is more or less every evening, she starts very frustrating, looped conversations with you which can lead to arguments if you say something she doesn’t like. I should mention that I’m AuDHD which makes it difficult for me to eat certain foods, shower and brush my teeth every day. I think I’m good at personal hygiene, but there are always days where I’m neglectful. It happens.
She either doesn’t care about this or refuses to acknowledge it because I keep having the same drunken, looped conversation about vegetables, showering and teeth brushing. Completely ignoring how hypocritical she is about this because all I’ve seen her eat is microwave meals or something egg based and she definitely doesn’t bathe as frequently as she expects me to do.
Because all we ever have to eat is microwave and instant foods, I’ve been doing my own food shopping since around March/April. But I still get the same conversation about how she’s stressed about not knowing what to buy for me because I dislike most vegetables.
I don’t think I’ve seen her even buy a vegetable for herself.
And nothing at all of what I say is being retained because she’ll just go right back to the beginning. And she keeps pressing into me about how I should shop for myself.
I know Alan is sick of it too because he’ll regularly disappear on random weekends, leaving me alone with her. On one of these weekends, I hear a loud crash and I find her fallen off the bar stool with her arms and legs sprawled out and staring into space. I help her up, send her to bed and she’s up again in 10 minutes leaning on my doorway and asking for help with a camp bed. I get firm with her and send her to bed again where she then gets up again 2 or 3 times.
There was another time where she was angry at Alan for sending money to some of his family abroad and yells at him demanding when he’s going back to England. She’s native Okinawan for context.
Last week was the worst I’ve seen so far because she tried getting me involved in her screaming match against Alan. I thank him for putting a stop to that.
I also needed a shower that day and needed to do laundry, so I thought to get that over with, doing my best to ignore them. Sandra sees me with the basket and thinks to show me how to work the washing machine. No amount of promising that I already know how got to leave me alone. Then I wanted to get in the shower, she still wouldn’t leave me alone and wanted to start up the looped shower conversation again. I had to yell at her to go away because I didn’t want to undress in front of her and she had the nerve to get offended.
I also hate on the rare times she’s sober, I have to pretend nothing is wrong to keep the peace because she doesn’t remember anything.
I haven’t even mentioned how constantly filthy the apartment is. Alan isn’t off the hook for this either. I honest to god can’t find any cleaning supplies, so I can’t even do it myself. Not even a mop, just a vacuum and a roomba. Everything is either wet, sticky or covered in crumbs.
The bathroom sink and shower is covered in mould and toothpaste and you could probably clean the kitchen floor 5 times a day and it would still be disgusting. Random sticky patches, crumbs and Sandra’s toenails everywhere.
Her bedroom is tidy but stinks to high hell of that stale air smell. Like the window hasn’t been opened since it was installed. And as an autistic person with a sensitivity to smells and anything sticky, you can imagine how uncomfortable it makes me. It’s to the point of being nauseous daily.
This leads me up to this morning where she woke me up by was standing at my bedroom door, staring at me like a fucking sleep paralysis demon. No good morning or an apology for startling me, just a reminder to turn the AC off when I leave for school. I told her so many times that it was online today too because of the typhoon.
I’m stuck living here until October and I have nowhere else to go. I’m at a loss of what to do and how I’m going to cope for much longer.

2023.06.02 04:45 Gameran Dexter Flux Presents: Sound-Off! - Part One
Previously unannounced press conference, May 31, 2023.
Cameras are rolling as the owner of Mann Corporation, Shay D. Mann, hair in a perfectly put-together part, adorned in a navy suit and white tie, steps forward to a podium, in front of a WiR backdrop, microphone in hand. Mann
: My name is Shay Duncan Mann. And I am the new owner and proprietor of Wrestling is Reddit. I can assure you that your beloved Allen Paisner will be returning in the future, however, he could not make tonight's show due to some…
Mann smirks. Mann
: Legal complications. But fear not, I’ll be taking his place in the booth tonight.
The crowd erupts with applause and cheers, eager to witness the rebirth of their beloved wrestling promotion, even without Paisner for the evening. Mann
: Tonight, we embark on an exhilarating journey, as WiR takes a bold leap forward. I stand before you not just as the owner, but as a “fan”—a fan who understands the passion and dedication that this community shares for the world of wrestling.
Mann tries to hide a grimace as he proclaims his “fandom”. The crowd anticipates Mann’s next move Mann
: For too long, WiR has been dormant, unable to proceed, some of the talent trapped in Europe with no way home. But this, is no more! Today, we resurrect the spirit of WiR, bringing it back to life with a bang! And what better way to open things up by “Sounding Off"! Presented by the one and only, Dexter Flux
The crowd gives an actual cheer with genuine enthusiasm at the mention of Flux, their sort of god-king. Mann
: "Sound Off" isn't just a name; it's a rallying cry! It's a call for all of you, the WiR faithful, to voice your opinions, to express your passion, and to join us in this incredible journey. This event will be a celebration of everything that makes WiR special—the wrestling, the community, and the shared experiences that bring us all together.
The press conference crowd, whose papering becomes increasingly obvious the more Mann talks, is enthusiastic, as they eagerly hang onto Shay D. Mann's every word, perhaps a little too eagerly. Mann
: Tonight, in this very ring, our talented roster will ignite your imagination, deliver jaw-dropping performances, and create moments that will be etched in your memories forever. Sound Off! will leave you on the edge of your seats, craving for more.
The crowd roars with the excitement of a hair dryer pop. Mann
: But this is not just a show; it's a community. Together, we'll embrace the highs and lows, the victories and defeats. We'll share our opinions, engage in spirited debates, and build something truly remarkable. WiR is your platform—your voice will be heard! The crowd erupts once again, their cheers echoing through the arena, showcasing their dedication to WiR, or getting paid to be there Mann
: So, my friends, get ready to immerse yourselves in the magic of WiR once again. Open your hearts, open your minds, and let the exhilaration of "Sound Off" wash over you! Tonight, we begin a new era—one that will redefine the landscape of this sport. Welcome back to WiR, my friends. Because Wrestling… is Revived.
With a sly smile, Shay D. Mann raises his microphone high, signaling the start of the show, as things fade to a video of Dexter Flux. His face is slightly out of frame as the camera points to his chest and chin. Crowd
: YEEEEAAAHHHHHH WE LOVE FLUX! WE LOVE FLUX! Flux
: Hey, it’s me, Dexter Flux. Welcome, uh, welcome you know, back to wrestl- Ugh, sorry, something was like, in my throat. Wrestling is Reddit. Welcome back to Wrestling is Reddit. This is House Party.
Knott's Berry Farm, June 1st, 2023.
With that rousing introduction, we now cut back to the day of, with a drone shot of the ring set up at Knott’s Berry Farm, fans on makeshift stands in the berry field, a parking lot and farmhouse off in the far distance, before [off brand royalty free music] begins to play! Crowd
Through the makeshift curtain, Tony “The Milkman” Stevens appears
, wearing a pair of off-blue tights with cow white print, a single blue elbow pad on the left side, with a pair of gloved hands- in which, he holds a pristine white umbrella
. The Milkman points his umbrella right down the lens of the camera… Milkman
: Good to be back, fellas, and good to see you, Mr. Cameraman! Been a while. Mann
: And here comes the Milkman, and a huge ovation from this crowd! But no Horde jacket with him! Woodbridge
: Or any jacket. But we’re in Anaheim, its hot out Mann
You’re right. But he did prepare for rain.
The Milkman hands off his umbrella to a fan at ringside, before sliding under the bottom rope, and ascending the left hard camera turnbuckle, firing up the crowd, before doing a backflip off the top rope, and into the ring! Crowd
The Camera cuts back to the entranceway, as the music changes, to Skillet Crowd
: BOOOOOOOOOOO Jericho Styles
appears on the ramp, adorned in an Allen Iverson Nuggets Jersey
. He blows off a fan’s high five attempt, before sliding into the ring and taking a position opposite of Stevens. Babaganoush
: WiR fans… welcome to Anaheim California, the beautiful Knotts Berry Farm! Welcome! To Sound Off! Presented by Dexter Flux. Crowd
: W-I-R! W-I-R! W-I-R! W-I-R! Banaganoush
: Our opening contest is scheduled for one fall to a finish. Introducing first, to my right… wrestling out San Jose California, weighing in at 217 pounds, Jericho… Styles! Crowd
: BOOOOOOOOO Babaganoush
: And his opponent, to my left. Weighing in at 208 pounds… Crowd begins to rise Babaganoush
: Wrestling out of… Brooklyn, New York! Tony… “The Milkmaaannnnnnn” Stevens! Crowd erupts into indiscriminate cheers DING DING DING
The Milkman and Styles circle each other as the bell rings, before Styles takes the initiative with a lock up attempt, which he quickly transitions to a rear waist lock. Milkman thinks on his feet, and grabs the arm of Styles lifting it above his head, and turning to break the lock, before using it to get behind Jericho, who uses his size advantage to overpower Stevens and apply a hammerlock, using the position to turn Stevens around, and take him down to the mat with an arm drag, maintaining control of the arm, which he quickly leverages into a pinfall… ONE
Milkman gets his free shoulder up! Crowd
: Yay! Woodbridge
: JZ leveraging some technical skill here in the opening moments of this one, but can’t keep the Milkman down! Mann
: Only one count for Styles
Styles refuses to relinquish his grip on the arm, and as Stevens gets up, pushes him back into the corner before he can balance himself. Styles whips Stevens across the ring to the other corner, before charging in and being met with Milkman’s knee! Stevens capitalizes on his newly made opening by delivering a sharp kick to the chest of Styles, before whipping him against the ropes. Styles charges back, and tries to use his momentum to catch Stevens with a hip toss, but can only get Stevens a few inches of height off the ground before the Milkman lands on his feet, lifts and Styles up for an atomic drop, which forces him to let go of Stevens. With his arm now free, The Milkman plants himself, and delivers a [devastating lariat]. With what self-preservation he has left, Styles rolls to the outside, and onto the grass. Woodbridge
: And The Milkman just leveled Styles with that lariat! Mann
: Not something we’re quite used to seeing from Stevens, some hard strikes early in this one that really seemed to throw Styles off his game.
Styles pulls himself up by the barricade, to the direct ire of front-row fans who continue to heckle him. Back in the ring, Stevens throws himself off the far-end ropes, charges in for a dive… before Styles ducks down to avoid being hit. Stevens doesn’t change speed, and instead, throws himself between the ropes for a 6-1-9 that hits nothing but air, launching himself back into the ring, and landing on his feet. After this feat of dexterity, and with Styles on the ground outside, The Milkman takes a bow for his efforts. Crowd
: YEEEAAHHH!! Four dues in front of the hard cam
: WE LOVE MILK! WE LOVE MILK!
At a count of eight, Styles, returns to the ring, and the two wrestlers square off again. Styles gets the better of the two on the lockup, delivering a stomp to Stevens’ foot, before kneeling him in the stomach. Styles lifts Stevens up for a suplex, but Stevens shifts his weight and lands on his feet behind him! The Milkman attempts a German suplex, but Styles throws a firm elbow to the jaw and repositions behind Stevens for a German attempt of his own. Stevens gives Styles a receipt with a firm, calcium-hardened elbow of his own, before bounding over to the ropes, and attempting a lionsault to a standing Styles! Styles catches him, but Stevens slips free, pushes Styles into the corner, and he takes a chest-first bump. Stevens harnesses his agility once more to get into poison-rana position on the shoulders of Styles, but Styles uses one arm to flip Milkman off balance and send him tumbling to the ground. Quickly, Stevens attempts to transition to a sunset flip but has to abandon ship as Styles tries to poke him in the eyes, jamming his finger into the canvas as a result. Stevens uses the moment to leap up to Bret’s rope, turn around, and deliver a dropkick to Styles! Stevens then rolls to the apron, and pumps up the crowd with a wave of his hand… Crowd
: YEEEAAAHHH WOOO!! Guy already 4 cheap beers in
: I hate this Styles guy!
…and delivers another springboard dropkick, this one from the top rope! Stevens flexes for the crowd, before rolling into a cover… ONE TWO
Styles gets a shoulder up! Mann
: Does The Milkman seem a bit different to you, Woodbridge? Woodbridge
: Milkman definitely wants to show off early, he looks like he hasn’t lost a step! Mann
: Maybe even gained one, and it almost feels like he’s being a bit disrespectful of his opponent, don’t you think? Woodbridge
: And what are you insinuating? Mann
: Well, maybe performing in front of a WiR crowd again has him a little more amped than usual! Trying a lot of those high-risk maneuvers early- we’re only a few minutes into this one, folks!
After the Kickout, Stevens signals to the cheering crowd, runs off the ropes, and attempts a wheelbarrow bulldog, but as he pushes himself up, Styles swivels his hips, and Stevens face plants into the mat. Mann
: And Stevens’ showing off cost him there!
Styles knees Stevens in the stomach, before putting his head between the legs, and sets up for the Styles Clash! He can’t lock in Milkman’s arms, and Stevens uses them to push off the mat to sit up above Jericho! Stevens tries throwing a punch at Jericho’s head, but he pivots his plan, and adjusts to deliver a powerbomb! As he releases, Stevens adjusts his body and manages to mitigate some of the damage by landing awkwardly on the back foot, stumbling back into the ropes. Mann
: If Styles hit that, it could have spelled an early end for Stevens!
Stevens pulls himself back to his feet using the ropes and charges back in with a clothesline attempt, but Styles sees it coming, grabs the arm and uses it to shift the momentum, and lifts Stevens for a tilt-a-whirl Backbreaker! Crowd
: BOOOOOO Mann
: And Styles seems to be in control here. Woodbridge
: Stevens took some early momentum, but Styles has had a counter for everything Stevens has thrown at him.
Styles pulls Stevens up to his feet by the hair, before casually flipping one of Stevens’ arms over his shoulder for a uranage position before holding his arms out to the crowd! Crowd
Styles smirks at the boos incoming, and throws Stevens with a t-bone suplex. Once Stevens is planted, Styles stomps the stomach to force him to sit up, before stretching the arms behind for a surfboard stretch! Styles
: I’m a technical wrestler now, assholes! Mann
: Styles slowing things down here, grounding the Milkman Woodbridge
: Not a bad strategy, we saw how The Milkman was in control with a faster pace! One guy holding up a sign with Goku
: WE-LOVE-GOKU! WE-LOVE-GOKU! Everyone else in the crowd is deafeningly silent Styles
: AND WHAT WOULD GOKU DO HERE, STUPID IDIOT? Styles breaks his hold and approaches the hard camera ropes to yell at the fan more Styles
: Dragon Ball is overrated trash! Styles kicks Stevens back to the mat Styles
That one was for you, fucking weeb!
As Stevens once again rises to his feet, Styles punches him and he falls back to the mat, just for Styles to pick him back up, and line up against the ropes, for an irish whip. As Stevens returns to sender, Styles throws him straight up in the air… and football punts him in the chest on the way down! Styles
: Hey weeb guy! This one’s for you too! I saw a Japanese dude do it once!
Styles lifts Stevens up, sets him up with the arms behind the back… and delivers a slow, sloppy [tiger driver], before placing a single foot on the chest, and flexing ONE TWO
: YEEEAAAHHHH Woodbridge
: Well, he didn’t quite get all of it.
Styles takes time to put Stevens in a Camel Clutch. Mann
: And it seems Styles didn’t want to get left out of showing off! Woodbridge
: Well, he certainly nailed Milkman with that kick, but the Tiger Driver left a lot to be desired. Mann
: Styles seems to have control of this match when it’s slowed down, wearing Stevens with this technical wrestling prowess. Woodbridge, reaching under the desk for a paper bag
: Everyone wants to be a hero in front of the first crowd in two years
Styles releases Stevens from the hold by battering him in the back of the head with a forearm, picking him up by the scruff, and bouncing him off the ropes for an Irish whip and hitting him with the kitchen sink! But Stevens wastes no motion, and grabs the leg, turning Styles over for a rollup! ONE TWO THR-
: BOOOOOO Woodbridge
: He almost got him with that rollup! From out of nowhere!
The Milkman tries to capitalize, but Styles returns the favor with a boot to the stomach. Styles
: I’ll show you to make a damn fool out of me!
Styles hoists Stevens up for a vertical suplex, before taking two steps and chucking him across the top rope! The Milkman bounces off the top rope, makes a deflating noise as the air is forced out of his lungs, and flops down to the floor outside! Mann
: Styles with some kind of inverted lawn-dart maneuver! Woodbridge, do you know what that’s called? Woodbridge
: Nope. Crowd
: BOOOOOO Styles
: Come on, milk boy, you have anything else for me?
Stevens crawls back into the ring, holding onto his ribs, before Styles once again kicks him in the stomach, and applies a chin lock in the ring. Mann
: Styles has found his target! If Stevens can’t breathe, he can’t fight! Woodbridge
: The young Styles showing some veteran instinct here, Mann, if Stevens has the wind knocked out of him, he can’t perform those high-flying moves he was nailing Styles with earlier!
Styles turns to the side, and locks Milkman in a body scissors, using his legs to apply pressure to the ribcage. Stevens tries to use his free legs to push both men closer to the ropes, but can only move them a few feet. Stevens smacks the mat with his free hand, and a guy in the crowd does it to the barricade. Stevens smacks the mat again, and a few more fans join in. Crowd Smacking the barricade
Stevens pushes towards the ropes again, making more progress. Styles sees this, and releases the hold, grabbing Stevens by the hair with one hand, tights in the other, and pulling him up to his feet. Styles
: You want the ropes so bad, here, have them!
Styles runs over to the ropes with the Milkman, and hurls him between the middle and top rope, dumping him to the outside where he lands with a noticeable thud. Styles follows him to the outside, taking his time to savor the boos of the crowd, before delivering a knee to a rising Milkman, and lifting him for a vertical suplex on the grass! Styles rolls into the ring… and back out again to break the count. Despite the present beating, Stevens once again pulls himself to his feet. Crowd
And Styles knees him in the ribs. Crowd
Styles rolls Stevens back into the ring before taking a moment to confront the drunk fan who jeered him earlier. After his verbal exchange, Styles delivers a scoop slam to Stevens to keep him down, and the pressure on the body, before sliding into a cover. ONE TWO
: Forcing Stevens to exert more energy there on the kick out, after continuing his assault on the ribs. A very solid strategy by Styles in this one.
Styles picks The Milkman up once more and prepares another vertical suplex, but the Milkman slips free! Stevens lands behind Styles, hooks his arms, and goes for a crucifix pin! ONE TWO THRE-
Styles barely escapes! The Milkman wastes no motion as Styles rises back to his feet, bouncing off the hard camera ropes, and forcing Styles to drop back to the mat to avoid a strike. Stevens bounces off the opposite end, and Styles barely avoids him once more, this time with a slide-step that sees him almost lose his balance. Styles tries to save his momentum by charging at Stevens as he bounces off the ropes a third time, but Stevens pulls down the top rope, sending Styles to the apron! Stevens kicks Styles in the knee, before going through the middle rope to meet Styles on the apron. Styles tries to sweep out the leg of the Milkman, knocking himself down to one knee on the attempt, but Stevens jumps over it, and catches Styles with a Calcium Kiss Superkick
that sends Styles to the grass below! Crowd
With his foe grounded, Stevens looks to the crowd, positions himself in the middle of the ring, and before Styles can discover where he is, Stevens takes flight, springboarding off the middle rope with an Asai Milksault
! On the landing, Stevens’ left knee awkwardly hits the uneven yard, and he visibly grimaces before falling backward. Mann
: And both men are down after that! Stevens with a ferocious comeback attempt, but he may have hurt himself! Woodbridge
: Someone hasn’t been taking care of their lawn.
Stevens hears the air exit the crowd, and pulls himself up, giving them a reassuring thumbs up, before using the leg he landed on to kick Styles in the back of his knee, before throwing him back into the ring. Stevens puts one leg into the ring through the middle rope, before looking into the crowd- and deciding to ascend the turnbuckles instead! The Milkman leaps, and delivers a diving hurricanrana
! As Styles tries to roll to the ropes, Stevens uses their good leg to stomp on his chest, before pulling him back to the middle of the ring, and hitting a Standing Milksault
! Stevens maintains the cover! ONE TWO THR-
Styles gets a shoulder up! Woodbridge
: And Stevens throwing everything into this assault on Styles, but it still wasn’t enough to put him down! Crowd
: Let’s Go Milk-man! Let’s Go Milk-man!
Stevens picks Styles up, and lifts him onto his shoulders… Woodbridge
: He’s going for the Milky Way!
…But the injured knee can’t hold up the weight, and both men crash to the mat. Entrance Music begins to play as a small, skinny wrestler in a leather jacket waltzes towards the two downed competitors Crowd
: BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Mann
: And that’s Raven Van Loupe! Van Loupe is here at Sound Off! Woodbridge
: These two formed an alliance last time we saw them! But will it hold after the time off?
Van Loupe enters the ring, despite the protests of WiR official Tai Ni Wong, and glances at the pair as both try to pull themselves up, Stevens using the ropes, Styles on his own. Van Loupe looks back and forth… before kicking Stevens in the injured knee! DING DING DING Babaganoush
: And here is your winner…
Van Loupe helps Styles to his feet, and the pair begin to lay the boots on Stevens. Babaganoush
: By disqualification as a result of interference, and striking a WiR official…
Styles takes the knee of the downed Milkman, and lifts it above his head, before thrashing it against the canvas. Babaganoush
: At a time of…
Van Loupe has Styles lift Stevens by the hair once more, before she runs to the ropes, jumps off the second rope, and Styles pushes The Milkman into the cutter
: Ten minutes and twenty-three seconds…
Styles and Van Loupe stand over Stevens, and Styles prepares to deliver the finishing blow as he signals to the crowd that he is looking for the Styles Clash! Banaganoush
: Tony “The Milkmannnnnn” Stevens!!!!!! Van Loupe
: Are you done?
Van Loupe gives Styles a thumbs up, but as he goes to finish off Stevens, a mighty howl plays over the speakers as a short, scruffy man runs to the ring. Woodbridge
: That’s The Werewolf! Mann
Johnny, A Werewolf, is here! And he’s rushing to the ring!
Styles lets Stevens flop back down to the mat, holding his knee, and turns to face the incoming Werewolf as he slides under the ropes and into the ring. Styles steps before Vna Loupe to intercept, but the fresh Werewolf knocks him off his feet with The Pounce
. The Werewolf comes face to face with Van Loupe in the center of the ring! Crowd
: AWOOOOOO Mann
: Pandemonium has broken out in the first match of Sound Off! And the fans are loving it! Crowd
: WE LOVE WERE-WOLF! clap clap clap clap clap
WE LOVE WERE-WOLF! Woodbridge
: The Pack Wolf and the Werewolf facing off in the center of the ring! Mann
: And these two have unfinished business! The Lifeblood exists because they took issue with being left behind for signings like Werewolf!
Johnny feints left, before throwing a right jab! The Werewolf unleashes Pack Tactics on Van Loupe! As he stops throwing punches, and signals for another pounce, Styles kips up, and levels the werewolf with a lariat! Crowd
Van Loupe and Styles begin to wear down the Werewolf, delivering blow after blow to Johnny as the boos rain from the crowd. Van Loupe delivers a stomp to the knee of The Milkman to keep him down before they and Jericho set up to finish off styles…
When an Italian Flag appears on the video screen, and an absolute guido of an Italian-American, hair dripping with greaseslowly walks out from behind the curtain, wearing a Shohei Ohtani jersey!
…A Shohei Ohtani… New York Mets jersey. Crowd
: BOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Mann
: That’s The Apex! Arturo Stiglione! Stiglione is in the yard!
Stiglione slowly scopes out the scene on his way to the ring, seeing the downed Milkman on the left of the ring, the downed werewolf on the right, and the standing Lifeblood members in the middle. He slowly ascends the stairs and stands across from Van Loupe and Styles. Wodbridge
: And The Apex, not a fan of Johnny, a very terse relationship between these two. Apex
: Hell ova job ya done hea’ Van Loupe
: If you know what’s good for you, you’ll stand aside, and maybe we won’t hurt you. Apex
: Dont’cha mind me, just monitoring the situation.
Styles pulls Van Loupe aside, and the two have an impromptu conference, before nodding along, and continuing their attack on Werewolf. Crowd
With The Lifeblood’s backs turned Styles looks down at his fist. He looks down at the blue and orange he’s adorned in, and loosens up his arm. He points to the back of Styles, who senses the crowd rising, and turns around… to be met with a spinning backfist!! Crowd
: YEEEAAAHHHH Mann
: Styles has made his choice! And he chooses to stand against The Lifeblood!
Van Loupe hears his body hit the canvas, and turns around, to be met with the sight of a downed Styles! The Apex takes off his Mets jersey… to reveal an Angels
jersey! The Werewolf is back on his feet, and he and the Apex come face to face! Van Loupe rises back up at the wrong time, as the two share a nod, and deliver a double clothesline! Seeing the situation turn against him, Styles slinks to the outside, and grabs a chair from under the ring, before sneaking back in behind the Werewolf and Apex, who have turned to the hard camera. Styles raises the chair to strike…
...And gets blasted by a Calcium Kiss from The Milkman! Crowd
The three faces are all back on their feet in the middle of the ring, standing tall! As the three begin to celebrate… “It’s a Psychobilly Freakout! Mann
: That’s the music of Mason Saunders! But where is he?
Saunders’ music plays, but the entranceway remains empty. Woodbridge
: He’s behind us, Mann! He just jumped the barricade! Mann
: But he’s outnumbered, Woodbridge, both his allies are down!
Undeterred by the numbers disadvantage, Saunders slides behind the faces, and as they recognize the trap, Saunders is already in the ring! The Werewolf approaches first and throws a jab that almost seems to bounce off the chin of Saunders. Saunders simply stares, and when the Werewolf tries a second one, Saunders swipes it aside with a tree trunk arm, before launching into action and dropping the Werewolf with a right hook, which catches the Werewolf cleanly on the jaw, who slumps backward onto the canvas. The Milkman tries to charge to his aid, but Saunders delivers a pump kick to put him back on the canvas. The Apex tries to make a move while Saunders’ back is turned facing Stevens, but he fails to do any damage and is swiftly thrown aside. Saunders drops the Milkman again, before turning around to face Apex… who turns around, and flees the ring as fast as possible! Crowd
: BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Mann
: And Stiglione, getting out of dodge as soon as he can! Woodbridge
: And turning tail and running, Stiglione is out of here!
As Stiglione flees up the entranceway, the rest of the Lifeblood begins to pick themselves up. Saunders puts the Werewolf pack down on the canvas with a scoop powerslam, and boots him out of the ring. The Lifeblood stand united, and face the hard camera, Stiglione and Werewolf removed, and the Milkman down on the opposite end of the ring. JZ ascends to the second rope of the left turnbuckle, Van Loupe to the right, and the three all pose for the hard camera! Mann
: And the Lifeblood, although not victorious in the match, is victorious here in the aftermath! Woodbridge
: But wait, The Milkman is trying to get back up! Mann
: Stevens of course, left for the picking, as other members of The Horde are all the way on the other side of the Farm preparing for their match later!
Stevens struggles to pull himself up to his feet, knee buckling under him. Saunders perks up, and stops his pose. Stevens staggers to his feet, and before he can get very far, Saunders turns, and with blinding speed nails Stevens with a disgusting lariat
that nearly takes his head off! Woodbridge
: And the Milk has gone spoiled.
The Lifeblood circle the downed Milkman like vultures, and Van Loupe drops to one knee, and picks up the Milkman’s head by the hair! JZ gets down as well, and the two strike a pose, with Milkman’s body as the centerpiece! Mann
: A statement made, by the Lifeblood Woodbridge
: To me, Mann, it looks like the statement was made by Saunders, Van Loupe, and JZ just picked up the scraps! Van Loupe, holding up Milkman to the Camera victoriously
: Take a look, WiR, this is the future! We are the Lifeblood of this company, and don’t forget that! The camera pans out to JZ and Van Loupe celebrating over Milkman’s body, while Saunders stares from behind, before fading out to a commercial break. Javier:
The following contest is scheduled for ONE FALL, with a 20 minute time limit. Your referee for this contest is Mia So Hung. Introducing first, from Montreal, Canada, weighing in at 119 pounds...... GIGI♥ V! Crowd:
BOOOOOOOOOOOOO! A significantly smaller but incredibly loud section of the crowd:
YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY! Music begins to swell in the background
, and the crowd continues their jeering (and occasional unbridled simping) until Gigi steps out, running her hands down her body to the lewd Ashnikko verse. Mann:
Gigi here, surrounded by her legion of fans, who are then surrounded by a legion of people who absolutely despise her. As it should be here in WiR.
Gigi saunters to the ring, taking vaguely suggestive selfies with her ravenous fans on the front row, and generally seeming uncaring about the forthcoming match. Woodbridge:
And given her successes recently, it’s gonna be easy to overlook a competitor like Li Xiao, which very easily could prove fatal.
Gigi steps into the ring, as Javier starts his announcing again. Javier:
And her opponent, from Hong Kong, weighing in at 105 pounds... LI XIAO!!! A unfamiliar metal song
blasts out from the speakers, and a rather familiar hyperactive martial artist bounces out from behind the curtain! Crowd:
Xiao charges down the ramp with a head of steam, hyped and ready to fight. Mann:
Xiao has some of the most devastating offense in this company, and if she’s able to keep momentum, it could very well shatter Gigi’s plans of making a statement here! Woodbridge:
Yeah, sure, but Xiao’s a tag team specialist first and foremost. She comes in to deal damage and then gets out before she takes too much abuse.
Xiao hops into the ring, and the referee pats both competitors down, before gesturing for the bell. DING DING DING
In an interesting turn of events, Gigi and Li Xiao start off with a collar-and-elbow tie up in the center of the ring. Gigi takes quick advantage of her height and weight advantage to gain leverage and force Li Xiao backwards into the ropes. Mann:
Gigi starting off with the basics here, knowing Li Xiao is nothing if not an incredibly explosive fighter. Woodbridge:
That’s right, Xiao wrestles like my grandpa used to make moonshine, god rest his soul!
Gigi sets herself, and when Xiao tries to push off the ropes and get Gigi off, Gigi directs the momentum into a modified biel, throwing Li Xiao across the ring! Gigi takes a moment to smirk and pose for the fans - a mistake, as Xiao rolls through the throw and hits the ropes on the opposite side of the ring! Mann:
Incredible strength from Gigi!
Gigi turns around into a sprinting palm strike from Xiao, staggering backwards into the ropes yet again, and Xiao follows up with a big kick to the gut! Gigi’s doubled over, and Xiao drops her with a DDT! Woodbridge:
Xiao’s fired up, and she’s quite possibly looking to end this match before it even gets started!
Xiao with the cover! 1! 2!
Gigi kicks out right at 2, and rolls up, obviously shocked and dazed. The crowd in attendance is split, with the wrestling fans excited to see Gigi on the ropes, and the Gigi fans absolutely in shambles. Xiao is up quickly, as Gigi staggers to her feet - Xiao hits the ropes, springboards, and catches Gigi with a beautiful headscissors! Crowd:
Gigi rolls through, runs the ropes, and comes back with a head of steam! Xiao dodges a clothesline attempt, shoves Gigi to the other rope, and gets ready for the comeback - Gigi catches the ropes! Xiao charges in to press the advantage, and eats an officially branded Gigi♥ boot to the face! Xiao is absolutely rocked, staggering backwards, and this time Gigi takes the initiative and absolutely levels Xiao with a clothesline! Xiao spirals to the mat, and Gigi blows a kiss to the fans in attendance! Gigi:
I am your future champion, and this is the match I’m booked in?
Gigi catches Xiao with a boot to the back of the head! Xiao rolls over, and Gigi drops a knee onto her throat, before going for the cover! 1! 2!
Xiao muscles out of the pin, clutching her head! Woodbridge:
We got two high fliers here, these women make a livin’ out of dodging attacks. Anything that lands here is going to be devastating! Mann:
And right now, it looks like Xiao is barely conscious after those blows to the head!
Gigi gets up, and winks at her fans in attendance and watching live throughout the world. Crowd:
Gigi saunters over to Xiao, and plays up the boot she’s about to give - SMALL PACKAGE! SMALL PACKAGE! 1! 2!
Gigi kicks out, and her mood instantly changes. Xiao is staggering to her feet, and takes a full on slap to the face! Crowd:
What a slap from Gigi, obviously assisted by her official Gigi♥ gloves, sponsored by Fairtex! Woodbridge:
now, and you could hear that slap all the way in Los Angeles!
Xiao clutches her face, and Gigi follows up with a huge kick to the gut! Xiao falls to one knee, and Gigi finishes the trifecta with a roundhouse to the head! Crowd:
Xiao collapses to the mat! Mann:
And Xiao’s down! What a kick! Woodbridge:
That kick nearly took her head off, Shay! I don’t know if she’s even conscious down there!
Gigi’s prepared, and is looking to finish this, climbing to the top rope! Xiao is flat on her back on the mat, and Gigi takes the leap, flipping forwards with a swanton! Xiao is still conscious, though, and rolls away in the nick of time, leaving Gigi high and dry! Crowd:
YAAAAAAY! KUNG PAO! KUNG PAO! KUNG PAO! Mann:
I... feel like that’s problematic, somehow. Woodbridge:
Nah, ‘sfine, don’t worry about it.
Xiao grabs for the ropes, pulling herself to her feet, but is obviously still dazed from the kick! Woodbridge:
Xiao’s hurt! Mann:
You see this a lot in Li Xiao singles matches - she’s got an incredible offense, but she’s fragile at best in-ring!
Gigi is holding her back, and glares at Xiao in frustration! Gigi:
You were supposed to stay down!
it was going on Tiktok!
Gigi charges forward, ready to avenge her mistake, but takes a knee to the gut! Gigi staggers for a second, only to get a chop to the neck! She’s reeling! Xiao with a forearm! Xiao with a elbow strike! Crowd:
Xiao takes a step backwards, and lets out a KIAI, before charging forward with a roundhouse - NO! SCHOOLBOY FROM GIGI! 1! 2!
Xiao kicks out at 2.6, rolls to her feet, and is immediately back on the offensive, catching Gigi with a kick to the gut! Mann:
Xiao was going for her trademark flurry of blows, and that roundhouse could very well have ended this match! Woodbridge:
Sure, but it doesn’t look like Gigi’s in a better spot right now anyway!
Xiao measures, as Gigi slowly gets back to her feet, and steps through the ropes, stalking her opponent! Gigi’s up, and Xiao leaps onto the ropes, going for a springboard - GIGI HOOKS HER LEG! Crowd:
Xiao loses her footing, and falls neck-first onto the ropes, before collapsing to the outside of the ring! Mann:
Gigi with a lightning-quick reversal! Woodbridge:
Xiao might be seriously hurt down there!
Gigi regains some of her confidence, and gives the crowd an innocent smile, completely ignoring the competitor she might have seriously injured. As the count reaches six, Gigi finally springs into action, rolling out of the ring, and grabbing Xiao by the hair! Gigi:
That’s what you get for ruining my moment!
Gigi pulls Xiao up to her feet, and throws her into the ring. Gigi rolls in as Xiao fights to one knee, then to her feet! Gigi smirks, and stands in front of Xiao, posing for the crowd - WHAM!
Xiao with a JKD backfist! Woodbridge:
River City Knockout! That’s Biff’s move! What a moment to strike!
Gigi is staggered - falls to one knee - then gets back up, just in time to eat THE CRANE KICK Crowd:
CRANE KICK! CRANE KICK!
Gigi is down! Xiao is staggering after landing the crane kick, and collapses to a knee herself! Xiao takes a moment to collect herself, then throws herself into the cover, hooking both legs! 1! 2! 3! NO!
Mia hits the three count, and Xiao rolls off, sure she’s won the match, but Gigi’s right hand is on the ropes! Crowd:
Mia explains to Xiao, who is obviously
frustrated, but nods. She takes a moment to kick Gigi’s wrist, knocking her hand off the ropes, before climbing to the top rope! Xiao steels herself - leaps - corkscrews through the air! Woodbridge:
Gigi gets her knees up! Xiao lands back-first onto Gigi’s knees! Xiao bounces halfway across the ring, clutching her back and neck, and lands on her chest! Crowd:
And Gigi has just enough in the tank to get that counter in!
Gigi, with what seems like massive effort, rolls over, before crawling towards Xiao, who seems to be completely out of it. She crawls over Xiao, with a knowing smirk, before hooking her legs around Xiao’s head! Mann:
Gigi looking for the Paywall, this modified figure four choke! Woodbridge:
And half the audience is looking at something else right now.
Gigi torques Xiao’s already injured neck back, cutting off all airflow! Xiao struggles for a moment, but is trapped in the center of the ring! She crawls forward, but Gigi leans back, torquing her neck even further! Xiao swings back with an elbow, then another, but her arm is caught by Gigi’s free hand! After a moment of struggling, Xiao finally relents, and taps in the center of the ring! DING DING DING! Javier:
And your winner, at a time of 7:53.... GIGI!
Gigi rolls out of the ring, obviously the worse for wear, clutching her neck after the crane kick to the skull! Mann:
And Gigi with a hard-fought win after these two threw everything at each other in a absolutely brutal short match! Woodbridge:
Xiao’s not a singles competitor on her own, but she showed just how brutal her brand of offense is when it needs to be - if Biff has the same resilience he used to have the tag division might need to be on notice!

2023.06.02 03:42 Bmaried123 Just finished Casper, wanted to share a funny story,
Thought I would share this so everyone can laugh while I cry. Hated the Video section BTW
Taking the Casper exam at home, my computer is in the living room and the camera is wide so it records everything behind me.
Welp my husband decides to leave the bedroom, he proceeds to frog crawl across the floor because he thinks he can avoid the camera, into the kitchen which is still in view of the camera while he looks directly at the camera and grabs his car keys, then leaves the apartment not realizing the entire thing got caught on the Video recording section and I was distracted as hell, NGL. So yeah that's how that went for me.
Should I message Casper or retake it or just accept the frog crawl?
