Absloute dating

I forgot the exact day he left. I feel liberated.

2020.08.07 15:37 CaptainMirage I forgot the exact day he left. I feel liberated.

I thought today marks a year since the breakup.
But the dates doesnt line up anymore.. and I'm so happy about it.
I forget so many important details about him and everything related to him and our relationship, its unreal! I even forgot the name of the girl he left me for!
I thought I'm still upset enough to remember all of this.. but apperantly, I'm not.
I'm so proud of myself for all the change I worked on myself to let this breakup make me better.. and even though I'm not done bettering myself (and lets be honest; there is always something to better ourselves at) I feel changed, for the best.
Sure, there was a lot of times where I felt like I made no progress but it was just normal part of healing!
I did my best to become the person I wanted to be, and not the one he wanted me to be, and I'm walking this path on my own pace and doing it to the best of my ability.
My head, as well as my heart, has finally let go.
And because of that, I think it is my time to leave this sub.
I want to say thank you so much for all of you. You were a great support at the moments where I questioned myself, and I am grateful for that!
Now before I leave, I will write 3 tips that helped me tackle this whole situation:
  1. Its ok to feel sad over what is lost. Just dont let it drag you down enough to mess up with your life.
Feel the pain; but dont let it take over you.
  1. Once you're done feeling the fresh pain of the breakup; try to cirfle yourself with good energy & healthy mentality. Try to rise from the pain as a better version of yourself; one that you ABSLOUTELY adore.
  2. Take this past relationship as an oppurtinity to see what you truly want or dont want from future partner.. and, try to find what were things you did in the relationship that you want to change.
It will get better. Give yourself time ❤
And once again.. thank you for this wonderful sub for all the support; you are all amazing!~ ☆

2020.07.23 22:14 Bertie54 Once mistrust is in your head you are contaminated for the rest of your life!

I (66M) am rather new on Reddit but i already read some very interesting topics and commented on a few, so now i want to share my story to show and put many of you on guard for the poision mistrust is. This post risks to be long so be patient and also please understand that English is not my mothertongue.
My story starts many, many years ago when i was still a teenager and met this girl at the local church where her parents were the tennants of a gathering house (bar) where the churchmembers could come and talk, have a drink and eventually play the French game "petanque" which was populair where we lived.She was 14 at that time and i 16. Long soty short we started to be good friends and after one year and a helf we strated dating and after a period of 5 years i officially asked her father the permission to marry her. We started very well and had two kids in this marriage who are now 43(F) and 41(M) and have their own families.
At a certain point in life when my kids were teens and in what we call them "the difficult years" i noticed some strange behaviour from my wife, contsting everything, not into physical things anymore ans often distant when we were together. I worked as a civil srvant at that time and was also still studying to get a degree in Criminology.
I was always home, helped her cooking diner, helped with the kids, homework, my entire salary was for the household so in other words i was at my place as a father and a husband.
The only personal thing i had was with a friend of mine going to shows and exhibitions for models trains. We were quit close to that couple who had 4 kids of their own but all younger than ours.
I could also always count on that friend to help us out with transport if for some reason i could not make it on time to pick my kids or wife from school or work.I was therefor not alarmed when he started to propose more often to pick her(my wife) up so i could go for the kids and be home faster.
It was only till the day, a Sunday morning, i remember it as it was yesterday, that i caught them in the act at my place. My wife and i had very nice Sundaymorning sex and i left completely pumped up with adrenaline to pick my daugther i was babysitting at friends of ours.
I came home at 09:30h with her and although my friend and i were supposed to go the a model train ghatering that morning and agreed that he would pick me up at 10:00 AM that morning, his car was already standing in front of my door when i came home.
At that moment i had this so cllaed "elbowfeeling" and asked my daugther to be very quiet and i openeder the front door with my key as silent as possible. Once the door open i could see them standing in the kitschen, she only wearin her thong, her hand on his crotch, he touching her tits and his tongue exploring her mouth. We entered at the precise moment that she unzipped him so i could imagine what the plan was, she was probably going to sing a song in that pink microphone of his.
Of course they immediately saw us and they freaked out. Certainly because of the look my teenage daugther had on her face and with what kind of desbelief and disgust she looked at her mother.I told them "I am sorry for you guys but i saw it" they could of course not deny it because they were caught in the act, so speaking.I went close to them and asked her "why" i was mad as heel but even more at him because he was my closest friend and i lost that too. I gave hiom my trust and heart as i gave my wife and they both betrayed my big time. I didn't get physical but asked him to leave mu house and never come back again and i warned him that i would call his wife to tell her and warn her what kind of husband he was.
Afterwards i heard he called her immediately to tell her that when she received a call from me that it was all unthrue what i was going to tell and he and i had an argument and that was my pâyback.
I tried to talk to my wife and asked her how she could that with even my semen of the morning sex still in her belly. She could not really answer me but there was some vague explanation of having nothing else in her life because of the two of us being together already at a very young age and that she felt to be trapped in a familysituation that was going to be the same till the day we died.
She promised that it would not happen again. I was devastated and although i saw some guys in my workenvironment who cheatd on their wifes and still had their family as nothing happended, i who was a faithfull husband and (i hope) good father was cheated on and lost my trust and belief in the values of marriage and the life as spouses. My world was falling apart and i didn't know how to handle this.
I became very silent and the physical interaction between the two of us stopped completely. That was because of me because i felt so disgusted that i was close to ask her to take ten showers a day to get his scent and touch of her body. I honestly could not tell if that hurted her or not because she never spoke about it and didn't ask for it either, she understood i resent her for it.
Concerning the friend, his wife didn't believe him because she had some suspition too and not only regarding my wife but also in the past because everytime they lost friends with whom theyr were close and now she understood why. All communication with them was cut off.
We moved on for a couple of years like that and me, being the forgiving kind of person contacted this friend one day because i missed him and we had a talk. He explained me the bad situation in his marriage and he was not able to ventilate his feelings at that time and my wife for some reason being vulnerable at that time answered his desires.Although we never went back to his house to meet hif family he sometimes came by but only when i was home. One day, i was studying for my degree and my wife was hoovering the house downstairs. My "friend" promised me to bring some papers and he arrived when i was upstairs and my wife cleaning downstairs? I heard her stopping the vacuumcleaner but i didn't really hear a con versation. So i assumed that he dropped of the papers and went away immediately. When i cam down from the stairs they were standing togteher having an apparently very silent conversation. When he saw me he said hello and excused himself that he could not stay and took of immediately.
My wife completley out of the blue and something she never did, told me she had to go urgently to her grnadmother in a nearby town and left her vacuumcleaner on the ground where she left it answering the door. Ina couple of minutes she was gone and drove of with her car.
I don't know why but i had again the elbowfeeling and i also drove of to drive to the granmothers appartment.
When i was almost at that appartment i saw my wife parking her car at the condo next to the one of her grandma and where her favortie aunt had an appartment. My alarmbells were ringing very loud because i knew that aunt was on holiday and my wife had the key of that appartment to give water to her flowers during her absence. One minute later i saw my friend leaving his car at e parkingspot like 15 yeards away from the condo and walked towards her.
I understood immediately what they were up too, she was going to have sex with him in her aunt's appartment hidden from everyone. I didn't wat to give them that opportunity and drove to my wife's car and parked immediately after her. She saw it was my in her mirror and i saw the pânic in her eyes. He also saw my car and fastly returned to his and drove off.
She didn't even try to deny it anymore and went immediately home with me. Needless to say how tensed things were but she kept taking care of the household and stay home. Untill one day i got this letter from court me being served because she filed for a divorce. The day she left, she left me behind with the two adolescent kids we have, most of the furniture for me taken out and without even greeting our son who was still in bed after a hard day work.
I rasied my kids by myself and i always took care that our house was clean that i was clean on myself and not beging the type fo guy going to basr to pity myself and to interact with other human beings.I stayed at home taking care that my children had everything they need but i could not replace their mother. They wer very mad at her and didn't want any contact.
I on the other hand encouraged them to contact her because they on ly have one mother in their lives and that they would regret later on if they didn't. It took over one year but they finally did and they are now very gratefull that the listened to my advise.
I was so disgusted again because after her first failure i was trying to lake things work out staying the same father and husband as before with exception of the physical contact because i could not bear to touch her again.
I stayed alone for 4 years tried from time to time to accept invitations of friends to go to a party where some of them tried to hook me up with one or other desperate woman but i was not interested. I didn't trust any woman anymore and i didn't want to have this casual sex with them just out of revenge on the women of the earth? that's just not me!
My Sunday routine was waking up, doing my morning excercise, taking a shower, going to the kitchen, prepare the coffee percolator and go to the bakery shop to buy some freshly baken buns, which i used to serve her on bed on Sundaymornings.Then i came back, had breakfast and cleaned up the kitchen and was just taking the day as it came.
Untill that particular Sunday that i came home from the bakery shop, opening an drawer and taking my cup for coffee. I stared at it and i threw it in thousand pieces against the wall.
That was the precise moment that i was tired of only taking "one" cup out of the drawer, i wanted to take, one for a SO and one for me. Nos i think hta was the moment i was done with my grief and ready to move one, i was again open to a relationship and wanted to restart my life. In the mean time, my kids were old enough and left the house so i was ther all by myself, becasue, and i omitted to teel you this, during court for the divorce tha judge was a woman, my wife's lawyer was a woman and my lawyer was late, so i thought "i am scr... here" but not at all, my wife "lost" the sessions and had to give me stuuf back and pay me some money. I refused both because i was the moral winner although in these kind of stories there are no winners.
So me being open for a realtionship started to date but that was not that obvious. I lost my touch a little and some of these women had a list of question and often the second and third question was if i had a good job whit a nice income and if i owned the house i was living in. Some of them even called me thet day after because i said no tot the traditional question to come up and have a "coffee". These women called me to ask if they were not attractive and why i didn't want to come up because in fact they wanted to get laid. But i, you can call me old fashion, was not into that untill i had real feeling for someone.
After i while i met my current wife with whom i am married now for 18 years (by the way, first marriage was five years of courtship and 23 years of marriage). My current wife is a very extrovert person and mathematics schoolteacher anbd doesn't sometime detect the signals and red flags i am seeying when a male co-worker becomes too flirty. For her being in her late fifthies, it shows that she is still noticed and not an average matrone. Me with the backpack of my previous experience i am very picky on these things and i understand that it can sometimes be sufficating for her. She is from another country and often is on the phone with her former colleagues in her country and posting all kind of stuff on facebook and their own kind of facebook. And often she tells me that men are writing to her hoping to get acquainted. When she shows me i see that most of these men are way much younger than me and way more good looking.
But with that backpackage i have and that feeling of mistrust in my head i sometimes got overcontroling and (i know it is bad) snooping at her phone. Certainly now because her son, she has from a former marriage before she became a widow, is cheating on his wife and jeopardizing his family life with his wife and daugther of 4. My wife says she is devastated by this situation and feels the need to talk about this via facebook or whatsapp with two of her male co-workers who are younger and single. When she is liking the picture these guys are posting she uses the heart symbol and for everyone else, me included it is alwasy the thumbs up symbol.
Again although this can be meaningless it raises red flags at my side. Recently she had to work from home on line because of the Civid-19 confinement and after class they had a meeting with the colleagues and the head of the school (on line) to discuss the progress and evaluate the kids whom the have in their classroom. They are having these meeting thru a special for the school on line system with the possibility of using a webcam which they can use privately for one on one discussions. So she was communicating with one of these two male co-workers who is really the kind of guy women fall for and their conversation was held via whatsapp together with what they did or not do via the camera. This to avoid that othser were going to see what was written is the special school system was used for texting. So because she was a little sloppy after the meeting she left her phone open and i coluld their conversation via whatsapp and he was really flirty and although she didn't respond in the beginning she strated to change a little the tone of her answers when he asked her if she hadn't a female friend that he could start to date. She sent the guy a picture on which she was with that female friend and asked hiom if that was ok, that lady being single. The guy responded that he preferred her above that female friend because she was prettier (which is true by the way) than apparently she asked him to shut his camera what made him respind i was just about to strip for her and that she would have to come to his house to see it in real. Ajthough she declined that immediately the reason she gave was not because she found it in appropriate but because he lives that far and because of his comments on the pictures of her female friend, she wrote to him that it was difficult for a woman to meet up his standards, that it was a pity that both of them didn't meet them because of their age (he apparently prefers them younger) which made him reply that for her he would make an exception.She called him completely crazy. That's where the conversation stopped and apparently the online meeting strated. Since that day (the 25th of June) there was no further communication between them, not by phone, whatsapp or any other social media channel i know she has. If something is hidden i will not know of course.
Anyway i felt very annoyed and nervous about it, and when i am in that stae i shut down completely. After a while she noticed but thought first it had to do with the business being very slow due to Corona and creating some serious financial challenges, but afterwards she asked me what it was because she saw a change in my behaviour and that she saw i was unhappy.
I told her immediately, and she was stunned about the fact that i snooped in her phone but took it immediately, opened it and asked me what i wanted to see. I told her and she opened it and nothing was deleted, all the messages i saw before were still there. I asked her if she thought it was appropriate to have this kind of conversation with this male co-worker and that it would jeopardize my trust even more when there were these last minute meetings at school after normal class hours. I never had any problem with these, or maybe a little bit of concern but then her behaviour at home was still loving and as the one from a loving spouse. She evene showed me without me asking for iut, her facebook account and the request for friendship she dayly receives from men al over the world. And indeed i could see that none of these request were answered and she even deleted them in my presence. About the conversation with her co-worker she was not seeying the problem and said this was harmless flirting behaviour because this guy was known as a hunter for females. She had no interest what so ever in this guy and reassured me that she never cheated on my and will never do. I tried to explain her that cheating can have different forms and it doesn't alway require physical contact, it can be intellectual as i explained her that it hurt me that seh conversated with these guys about the situation her son is in, instead of with me, her husband.
But that syory is to show that the trust that was taken away from me by my first wife, still isn't restored completely and it affected my behaviour towards my current wife. I tried to tell her that and then she became angry and shouthed at me that she was not (first wifes name) !! she left going for a long walk with the dog saying she left her phone with me in cae i wanted to investigate something else and to avoid i would suspect her texting or calling one of these guys while having that walk.
I feel sorry for her but i can't help it and now i am hooked to all these stories i read on Reddit, i constantly am watching the TV shows from all, kind of different countries , kind of reality shows where they set up people to catch them as cheaters. It is like i am hooked or became an addict to that kind of shows everytime to convince myself that women cheat a lot on their husbands. I know it is irrational ans absloutely not the entire thruth but i can't help it. I sometime spend 7 to 8 hours a day watching all this and reading Reddits. Sometimes till i totally got fucked up and start to get mad and start to have a headache.
This to warn you all, i know i will have to work on this seriously but for the moment i can't stop it and i am afraid that if it continues it will harm my marriage and possibly end it.

Any reflection on this?

2020.06.06 00:44 Hippotheh Have I got a story tell.

Advice wanted, but only at the end if you make it through. I pulled out my computer to type this, so here we go.
SO: Just yes husband. Married 3 years, and every step of the way he has been on my side. His only fault is he does placate the in-laws, but he is somewhat justified as he is very close to his Just-yes grandparents who mostly raised him.
I'm not nicknaming MIL and SIL for clarities sake. And just as an FYI, there is no FIL in these stories.
BACKGROUND:
MIL is probably undiagnosed bipolar and unmedicated. For the first couple years I was dating SO, MIL was a fruitcake: hyper, sing-songy, childlike, and ridiculously over-the-top happy. My SO and I met in college, and I got into graduate school. He moved with me to my grad school. Then he got into med school the next year an hour and a half from my grad school.
We looked at potentially buying a shitty property inbetween our schools, as it is the absloute middle of nowhere and no one was renting. I have horses, so I have the extra challenge of needing to find my horses an afordable place to live as well. But funny enough, MIL lived exactly inbetween our schools. She was getting married, and the new guy didn't want to live in the house, he bought a house for them, and she moved out. The house is on the same property that the grand parents IL live on, so she didn't want to sell the house either. MIL offered for SO and I to move into her old house.
I want to note at this point that the hair on the back of my neck stood up. I know that renting from family can get ugly, and I was very pushy that we had written contracts about what was expected from landlord vs. tenant. Unfortunatly my spine wasn't that shiny yet. MIL whined that she didn't want to be thought of as a "landlord", and that that was too mean-sounding. SO and I relaxed a bit, and didn't do any paperwork. We moved in.
The house had a small barn and an old rusty, shitty fence. I intended to rebuild the fence and bring my horses home. I was boarding them for $600 a month, which I really couldn't afford, and having them at home ended up in being about $200 a month total.
The agreement for moving in was that we wouldn't pay "rent", just utilities, and we would do some needed updates and repairs on the house at our cost My SO and I are pretty handy, so this was the perfect arrangement for us. MIL listed a bunch of things that needed to be done, and most were easy and cosmetic. My intention was to attack a lot of it as we moved in, as I had a month off in grad school. One of the things on the list was repainting. The entire house was this god awful water-based paint christmas green and red. Literally every room in the house had a faded red wall, and green trim. Green countertops, green tile, green doors, red curtains. It was like water color christmas. So I talked to MIL about paint colors. We agreed on a very pale blue for the living room, and white with cream trim in most of the other rooms. The kitchen was going to be a dark brown trim. I showed her the pain swabs, and pinterest style pictures of what my vision was, and every step of the way she agreed that it was a good idea!
So then I started painting.
And the shit. hit. the. fan.
MIL went absolutely insane. I was kicking her out of her house. I was destroying all of her memories. She forbid me from bringing my horses there. She broke the pool pump so it wouldn't work and we couldn't use the pool anymore, and as she moved out of the house she left one fucking box at a time so she would have excuse after excuse after excuse to show up again.
Then we get word that SIL is going to move in. WHAT?????!?!?!? Apparently SIL has learned that her brother got this sweet deal at the old house and she wants in on it. Oh and she gets the master bedroom, and half of the garage.
We have a meeting with SIL to discuss this. I'm trying really hard not to shit on this family I am trying to sortof be a part of, but I know they are shitting on me. I tell SIL that no offense, I'd like to be friends with you, but I'm not excited about being roommates. SO and I had been talking about marriage, and I really didn't want to be a newlywed living with my SIL. She assured me it was only going to be for a few months while she got her finances together to buy the house she was looking at.
Bull. Shit.

4 years later, this lazy, gossiping, useless extension of MIL is still living in the house.
I'm going to skip over these 4 years mostly but I will assure you that they were full of the above drama. MIL spends 6 months being mother teresa, then goes off the rail and decides her son is the devil himself. Then she backpedals hard and wants to know why *I* am not more open to her.
SIL literally sits around all day every day doing absolutely nothing but gossiping on her phone on speakerphone. She is loud AF and you can hear her whereever you are in the house. When she is gossiping about me, she calls me "The skinny bitch", and my SO and I together are "The self-righteous assholes" . Literally anything we do is somehow represented to MIL as wrong. And somehow the grandparents always get some very jumbled story that paints us out to be badguys when there was nothing to even start drama about in the first place. Luckily grandparents and SO are very close and he is always able to sort them out.
When confronted, SIL goes instant puppy dog eyes and begs to know what she can do to make things right. "Not doing it again" has been my only answer all this time, and since it isn't something instant, she never really gets there.
Not to mention SIL has been ME-tooing everything. If SO and I have something, she needs the exact same thing but better. That's why she got the master bedroom. I got the barn (After fighting tooth and nail for 9 months ), my SO got the garage (half of it), so SHE needed something.
Our bedroom and bathroom open up into the living room, and I made a point to walk naked from bedroom to bathroom for 4 years. Because I AM the skinny bitch, and she can feast her eyes on it TYVM. Meanwhile she had a frikkin hot tub in her bathroom that she just put 3 litter boxes in (So she only has to clean it all once in a blue mooon).
Before we got married, my SO gave me a puppy. An adorable basset hound. I'm a busy person (hint grad school and horses), and we had decided on a breed that would be okay without a ton of extra exercise and work. A basset hound is perfect. He's literally the fittest basset you ever saw, and he is happy as a clam to sleep all day if we are working. Within a month of my puppy, SIL came home with a police bred german shepherd. A very sweet dog, but a very HIGH ANXIETY, and HIGH ENERGY dog. He dog shit everywhere, peed everywhere, destroyed everything, and she made no effort to exercise her. She would take her outside sometimes and let her play in the sprinkler for 10 minutes and call that exercise. SIL is like 300 lbs and leaves her bedroom for the fridge only. WTF did she need a german sheperd for? She made a point to let everyone in the world know her dog was registered and a POLICCCE DOG!!! (Who the fuq cares?)

MY SO has dirtbikes. So SIL got a racing 4-wheeler. MY SO found us a cheap giant TV, so she bought a giant-er TV the next day. We got a new bedframe at one point, she got one of those foldy-remote control beds the next week. I have 3 tattoos, and finally got a visable one, she got a tattoo the next month. You name it, she has me-tooed it at one point or another.

Okay so I think I have finally finished background. Now onto now.
This spring SO and I graduated!!! And bought our own house 2 hours away from the old place. YAAAAY!!!. We moved and are getting ready to start our new jobs. For the first 2/3rds of the move all was peachy. MIL was all happy and nice. She helped us pack, and move. She was respectful and kind. All was good. Or so we thought...
Before we moved my SO and I made a point to clean up the house really nice, and the yard. We did all the mowing, gardening, weeding, etc from January-mid April. And all the house cleaning. As of about January SIL completely stopped participating in helping out around the house and yard.
Then we moved Mid April. The last Mow at the old place was about 4 days before the move in day. 2 weeks later my SO goes back to the old place to pick up a few things, and to pick up his MEDICAL SCHOOL DEGREE. He pulls into the driveway and MIL is there... He walks up to her with his MEDICAL SCHOOL DEGREE, and before he can say anyhting she starts screaming "FUCK YOU YOU USELESS....etc"
Wanna know why she was upset?
Because the backyard grass was really high.
So there is SIL Laying out in the yard playing on her phone, and MIL covered in dirt doing yardwork all angry and pissed off at my SO, because SIL convinced MIL that we didn't do ANY yardwork this year before we left.
SO calms her down, and reminds her that she literally helped us move and had been at the house the last time we were when it looked really nice. He also reminded her you have to mow that backyard weekly to keep it nice, and that we no longer live there now.
Then MIL wants to know why I hate her so much. SO is confused, and she says that apparently I thanked our friends for helping us move on facebook but I didn't thank her.
OKay, lets break this down a minute. First of all... My SO's best friend came up and helped him build a run-in shed for my horses in 2 days. They worked their asses off and it's beautiful. I made a post thanking him profusely on facebook. He was really proud of it and it was pretty cute, he was a classmate who just got a surgery residency, and he was more excited about showing off the shed he built.
Next, how does MIL know? She doesn't have a facebook. But you know who does? SIL does. So SIL took something I posted about the shed, and told MIL about it but completely changed the meaning. Now unfortunately, the way we figured out how all of this happened was through the grandparents. And grandparents really don't want us to let SIL know how we found out.
So what do I do? Of course I immediatly block SIL. She doesn't need to know anything about my FB.
Then a few days later I had to stop by the old house to pick something up. I was nervous about MIL yelling at me. She was awkardly polite, and I just grabbed my stuff and left. I stopped by Gparents house and hung out with them for a bit, they invited me in for food and I stayed an hour or so. It was good to see them.
Now today my SO went back again to visit his grandparents. He stops by the house where MIL is (Apparently she is literally living there to do all of the yardwork and housework and watch SILs dog. IDK how SIL managed to work that out, nor do I care). MIL wants to know why I hate her so much and was so short when I stopped by the house. SO explains that...well... literally a few days beforehand you had been screaming at me, so she was a bit nervous...
Then SIL butts in and says "Yeah, she barely said anything". Then MIL turns to SIL and says "How do you know, you weren't there".
SIL. Intstalled. Cameras.
When I came she watched me on camera.
Then SIL asks SO why I blocked her on FB. He tries to avoid mentioning the above story about the runin-shed post. SIl says she wants to know how to make things right with me.
Again she is being toxic AF, batting her eyelashes and going "oh poor me, don't hate me" while being a spiteful, gossiping 328ty032tg42ew8gbfoiaefweihjie.
Apparently SIL is going to call me sometime this evening to "make things right". Whatever the fuck that means. And MIL wants to know why I'm so standoffish to her.
These people are literally the stupidest people I've ever met. How can such a brilliant have such toxic and useless MIL and SIL? His grandparents are totally normal people, and then this pair just suck!!!
So advice? should I ignore SIL if/when she calls, or do yall have anything particularly snarky I can say to her? I'm completely over her BS btw and have no interest in ever having a relationship with her. I haven't even mentioned a tenth of the BS that has happened over the past 4 years.
What about MIL? Do I owe her an explanation as to why I'm standoffish? I'm not even rude to her. I'm just short and polite and I make a point not to say too much because I know how anything I say can be turned on me in 6 months.
I don't have any reason to have to see these people until the holidays at this point. So I've got time.
Tl;dr: You're in the wrong subreddit if you want a short story.

2020.01.06 09:42 RazorBlood6 RANKED: Make Believe

Hey, i'm thinking about doing something new, where each week, I rank the songs from a different Weezer album, but to make things a little more interesting, I'm gonna begin with my least favourite Weezer album, and slowly make my way up to my favourite. That means that today, I'm gonna ranking Make Believe (yay...). Please let me know your rankings below in the comments, along with how you would rank the songs.
Also, BTW, I've actually relistened to this album again, and it's still pretty damn rough. I don't want to have to listen to it ever again, aside from a few songs. That being said, I do feel that some of the songs have grown on me a bit, and while I still don't like the album, It's not as utterly abysmal as I originally imagined it as.

12- My Best Friend
Even after relistening to MB, I still consider this song to be the worst Weezer song, bar absolutely none. It has pretty much no redeming features whatsoever. Pretty much every other fan hated song has something to keep from being as bad as My Best Friend. I could see a hip-hop fan enjoying Can't Stop Partying, The Prince Who Wanted Everything at least has a great bridge, Autopliot is at least original, and although different, it's one i've come around on, if you can appreciate vocals of foreign languages, then Love is the Answer is actually a pretty decent song, and i'll get to We Are All On Drugs + Beverly Hills in a second. But My Best Friend is just abysmal, and I cannot find a single good thing about this unsufferable song. The lyrics are bad, even for Make Believe standards, the instrumentals are excruciating to listen to, and the problem is that it isn't even forgettable like some of the MB songs, you are going to remember this song, and not in a good way. Thankfully it's also the shortest song on the album, and the suffering won't even last 3 minutes.
11- We Are All On Drugs
Even the title of the song is terrible. It's probably the most repetitive song in Weezer's whole discography, using the phrase "on drugs" in every single line, minus a few in the bridge. Also, the entire metaphor about drugs and addiction has been so overused, any fragment of positive meaning the song might have had in the first place has washed down the drain. The only reason that this isn't last is simply because it was less painful to listen to, compared to My Best Friend.
10- Pardon Me
It may not be the worst song on this list, but i'd go so far as to argue that Pardon Me has the absolute worst lyrics of any Weezer song, not to mention it's one of the most forgettable Weezer songs to date, and there's a good reason why nobody ever remembers this song. It's in the top 5 most boring Weezer songs of all time, and if it weren't for My Best Friend and WAAOD being absloutely insufferable, then Pardon Me would definitely have a spot as the worst MB song. Also, just writing this paragraph made me move it down a spot, just because I have so much more negative things to write about it compared to my original number 10 spot.
9- Beverly Hills
I still cannot understand how THIS is Weezer's highest charting song to this date. More shit lyrics and cliches, along with one of the most annoying choruses i've ever heard. However, the instrumental and bridge is decent enough, and it was VERY close to being a spot higher on this list. (Edit, i'm actually swapping it with Pardon Me right now, it's moving up a spot)
8- Peace
Another forgettable song with very little originality, only gaining a spot this high due to having a chorus that is musically okay. Also, i'd like to mention the overuse of "whoa-oa"s on this song. Perfect Situation, which comes before Peace on the album pulled it off well, but only due to the final chorus changing them up a bit and keeping them interesting. With Peace, it's just the same thing over and over again. It also doesn't help that it comes after Perfect Situation on the album, so having a second song with a lot of "whoa-oa"s already feels stale.
7- Freak Me Out
The lyrics of Freak Me Out are utterly terrible, but I don't think it's as deserving of utter crucifixtion in the same way some of the other songs on the album are. The only reason I put it this high is because it's melody is okay (emphasis on okay, not good, just okay), and it's original, which I can't say for a lot of the songs on this album. This song may be pretty bad, but it at least had a spark of an idea that could have been great, but failed in execution, however, there still remains some moments that keep me from putting it any lower.
6- Hold Me
Hold Me has never really been a song that i've liked much, and in the past, I would have probably put it a few spots lower. But since I listened to the album again, it's grown on me a little. While I wouldn't quite go as far to like the song just yet, i've found some real enjoyable moments in it, such as the the 2nd half of the 2nd verse, the bridge, and the closing part of the song. However, I still really do not like the lyrics at all.
5- The Other Way
Now we're starting to get into the more enjoyable songs. I don't really have to say about The Other Way, it's just overall and fun and enjoyable song. Although the lyrics aren't necesarily the best, they're far from the worst of the album. The Other Way just happens to be a simple, but enjoyable song.
4- Haunt You Every Day
Another real grower. I utterly detested this song at one point, and I was shocked to find out that the fanbase seemed to like it so much. But listening to it again and giving it another chance has opened my eyes a little. It has some of the best lyrics of the album (although that's not really a hard feat to accomplish), and it shows that Weezer seems to have a thing for album closers. Haunt You Every Day has gone from a song that I would skip every time it comes up on shuffle to a song that I could really see myself loving further down the track.
3- The Damage In Your Heart
We're finally getting into the real bangers! TDIYH is a pretty chill song, but there's something about it all that works really well. Also, am I the only person who things that it sounds similar to What I've Done by Linkin Park? It just gives me a lot of similar vibes, and as an LP fan, I guess looking at the song in that way has made me appreciate it more.
2- Perfect Situation
C'mon, you all knew that this would be somewhere close to the top. I'd probably have to say that Perfect Situation has the best lyrics of the whole album. The lyrics give me Pinkerton vibes, and the song itself is memorable enough that you are gonna have it stuck in your head all day.
1- This is Such a Pity
Despite me not really being a fan of Make Believe, This is Such a Pity is one of my favourite Weezer songs overall. I love the synths, which haven't really been used in many other (if any) Weezer songs, the lyrics are among the best on the album, not to mention the epic ending to the song. It's just such a pity that the rest of Make Believe couldn't be this great.

Let me know your thoughts on my list, along with how you would rank the songs below!
(P.S: I'm not gonna be ranking Teal, because there's no point in ranking carbon-copy cover songs from various artists. I don't even consider it a Weezer album, because it's the only "Weezer" album that you miss out on literally nothing by not listening to. I also have no intention of ranking Death to False Metal as of now, maybe i'll do it once we've ranked every other album.)

2019.12.05 23:32 abond0082 University of Applied Sciences in Finland are they any good?

First of all, miten menee? Also hyvää 102 itsenaisuus päivää :) nautikkaa ja hauskaa viikonloppua ;)
Lets break this out in the open, I'm willing to talk about this question more than once, I will be asking it more than one time. I have done an Environmental Engineering degree at TAMK....Sometime agao. I have also masters from university of jyväskylä related to biological sciences.
Anyhow, I have not had any luck with my Env.Eng degree...Basically the only thing I can do, I'm not successeding with it at all. All doors are closing in my face and I even I'm trying to apply outside of Finland. I have contacted the adminstrators in TAMKvwere everybody swears to me that it is a good degree.
Here is somethings to make clear, I was 18 where I got admited so too stupid to know anything, focused on parties and crab but I DID it regardless in 5 years.
Few notes is that and I will come across as arrogant but please forgive me because I very frustrated:..A lot of students who graduated from TAMK haven't done anything with it, while few had very succesful careers(Usually the top students) most have been doing simpler jobs, like bus driving, changing careers to nursing, even just buming out totally etc...
2) It seems no one failed or could have failed, literally there were some people who dont know how to solve 3/2x = 10, find x and I'm not kidding about tha3) Some where absloute failers with chemisty or even basic kinematics in physics passed. No AUTOCAD course,very basic math and basic physics, no engineering structure of building and design, no remediation solutions, no simulations and data analysis, no practical skills and it is Internationally acclaimed university which is Unbelievable. ANd it took years wondering why does it feel that everytime I approach an emplyer or call a teacher, they seem impressed by it but seems to be conceling a laughter at it, and thinking it is not that useful, all employers I appraoch ask for some skill tthat we didn't learn. I have achieved nothing and it is one if NOT the biggest REGRET in life. I cant' do anything with it inside and outside of Finland. You can't even change majors with it that easy, if you go to technical Uni you have to do entrance exams again etc... , you cant make an other masters as it is not that related to other fields or anyfields, Engineering or finance. No one failed in that program which I would be extremely happy if the syllybys was demanding and people have the basics downs but we went to ICeland for free yaaaaay :)
I have been bshting about this all over the net and I want to know Finnish people experince with it. I like being an Eng, it is always a passion and it was like a dream come true to me, but this has NOTHING to do with it. It is FAR from pratical, not even close to practical. I just knew that a little too late...I was discussing with a friend of mine who studied with me and she said about the same thing. Something that I was proud off, I'm not proud of anymore.
IF somebody can geniuounly help me, I would appreociate it, I'm terrified as it has affected my life EXTREMELY NEGATIVELY: Basically, eveything in my life has been ruined and it seems that I have to start all over agian, it is just not working and I dont know why. I was dating a woman from a non European continent and it even stopped from pursuing her for the fact that I'm chronic unemployed, almost zero skills or talent etc...

Insults are allowed towards me if you feel I deserve it.
But tell me your thought on Universities of Applied Science because I also feel that, I'm just really insecure and just being a child but I don't know. No need to be too nice.
Happy holidays ja hyvää joulua :) :D

Time Hop
A few months passed with little struggle, the brothel was expanded and business had boomed. Customers now weren't just coming for the women but the food as well. Adventurers were the sort to walk in here, spending big on food and "dances" most of all. The additions to the building were of a negligible fee surprisingly, and the work was completed in half the time...upon researching how this happened it appeared that the 「Perfect House」 was the cause. The extension Were a bigger space for customers to sit, a better stage, improved rooms, and a better Kitchen...

solved paradox 07/25/2018

she started being careful with her food, for one she didn't want to be known as the cook who ensures quest success, but she would have the waiters inquire about any new quests that they were participating in. of course, with the large kitchen, she started uping standards, having staff help clean out the place top to bottom and readying certain meats and sauces for marination or smoking overnight. she also had claudia let her handle the food costs, given the menu store has a much cheaper cost then any of the local markets, she would effectively cut the places operating costs to help spur on such unprecedented growth. her main goal was to leave the place in a spot where she would only have to come around once every so often to change out the recipes and ensure proper standards were being enforced.

Little Spotlight 07/25/2018

Cluadia was starting to get suspicious, but mirna would assure her that she had been buying the food from a good friend at a discounted price...it seems that mirna's affinity eventually did cap. The other women were also soon to cap. The kobold was still up for her dances but just about every other night or every 3 nights she would spend the majority of the night with the dragonborn. They would spend hours locked in the room together.

solved paradox 07/25/2018

her initial fear of her being in danger of a overly attached costumer started to melt away, hopefully she would be able to make this place successful enough for kinsqa to enjoy her own life. mirna was a bit of a passion project, she helped her learn each cooking technique she could by hand so she wouldn't need the effects of [perfect house]. she would undergo her training by having customers put in off menu requests of any kind, thus always keeping her much older apprentice on her toes.

she hoped that the crash course in higher cooking would help mirna become a better cook overall, one that could take over for her when she went off for her education.

Mirna picked up the skills rather easily...and after hitting the one year mark something new popped up on her status.

a lower version was all she needed~! she didn't need a bunch of mini hers running around devaluing her ser- christ that sounds horrible to say...anyways, she felt as though she did literally all she could do to make this place as good as it could be, just just needed to work on this places ability to run without her...at the end of the shift, she asked her mom if she could be taken to town, in disguise if needed.

time hop
The next few months would introduce a few unexpected problems, a few women wished to join in or find work here. Or some anger from the local culinary creators. The food sold here was impossible to obtain elsewhere, and more and more people sought to meet the chef. Claudia was firmly against this.

solved paradox 07/25/2018

she decided that if their were any appearance, that mirna would serve as her face ad voice for right now... she also made sure to tone it down with the advanced cooking stuff, she replaced the menu with a more down to earth menu, using only a few other world ingredaints....though requests as always, were open.

Little Spotlight 07/25/2018

Proposals and other offers from Adventurers came for mirna, she was getting a bit more attention than she was used to. On one particular day a sharply dressed individual came in, an overwhelming presence. The only ones that could stand such a immense pressure were adventures and the maidens of the house with Unnatural charisma or high strengths. This individual would sit themselves at the counter with a blank expression.

solved paradox

she was a little freaked out, this world had conquerors XXXX... she was going to talk to god after this life about getting a new lawyer. she told mirna to get ready, she didn't need a housemakers skill to know when someone was going to be hard to please.

Little Spotlight

Mirna soon came out to take an order. "Welcome to Claudia's, how may I help you today?" She kept her feminine charm and tried to keep up beat about this. The individual spoke with the sharpness of a noble. "I am her to sample every item on the menu. I have the funds to do such." They lifted up a bag up to the table setting down a full bag of gold bits.

solved paradox

she clicked her tongue...lotta food, what was...(she decided to wait to guess the gender) trying to do? she started cooking with mad fervor, she would have mirna go out once more to ask if the assumed noble had any special requests. she would have the other servers go and apologize to the other customers for the wait.(edited)

Little Spotlight

Most of the other customers didn't bat an eye, the overwhelming charisma allowed them such Levy. Mirna was quick to help with the preparation of the many meals. the meals of course were all sample sized so prep for it would be a bit easier on them.

solved paradox

she sent it out in controlled waves, five plates at a time and having the plates picked up by the time the next wave was sent. she didn't know why...but she felt personally challenged by this new comer...so she poured her heart out in these, using any ingredients she could to enhance the taste of the dishes.

Little Spotlight

The culinary genius went into each dish, with each meal with give thanks And Chow down in dignified manner. He gave no expression when eating as to seem impartial. It was unclear what dishes resonated with them.

solved paradox 07/25/2018

she would interject once in a while, but for now, she allowed the adults to handle the business end of this transaction...what kind of master was this? was her cook that bad? or was she looking to brag...

Little Spotlight 07/25/2018

At the end of the night the elf would depart. Mirna would get to work on dinner.

solved paradox 07/25/2018

she helped cook...she tied her best to make this meal the best she could muster, as a thank you to all of the staff for being so kind to her. if tomorrow was the pick up date, this may as well be the last night that she saw them. cubanos... she wanted them to smell the love she had for them from the darned kitchen.... first, a pork shoulder bought off the menu, gristle cut away and scored along the top fat, she placed it into the bowl. in another bowl, she would combine orange juice, fresh squeezed, purified water, a few glugs of rice wine vinegar, some rum form claudia's stash, salt, quarter cup brown sugar, minced garlic (one head) and a selection of herbs, those being rosemary, thyme, oregano and sage. she worked this brine into the shoulder and massaged it until tender.(edited)she made a slight mistake in her recipe with the marinade time, and used status report on herself to see if theirs any home maker skills to help reduce marinade time.

SHES A FRICKEN MONSTER! WAS THIS ALL STAT BUFFS FROM HER OWN COOKING?!

Little Spotlight 07/25/2018

it seems as though you were a skill bearer, and you were effected by your own food.

solved paradox 07/25/2018

She had to calm down...she narrowed her search to include her skill list, then narrowed it again to look for anything pretaining to marinade time.

Little Spotlight 07/25/2018

Her skills all had a unique modifier, Blessings they were called.

solved paradox 07/25/2018

she would have to write this down at some point, this would most likely become important later, but for right now, she needed a skill to cut down a 12 hour marinade.

Little Spotlight 07/25/2018

Browsing her cookbook she would find she could cut down her time to 5 minutes. The cost however was a bit expensive. A gold bit.
189 copper bits 75 silver bits 25 gold bits (from the elf)

solved paradox 07/25/2018

she nearly spits out a swig of water...she scales the marinade time to about an hour...(oh wait, that's my pay, never mind, I thought it was asking for that much.)she pays out a single gold bit as she realizes again for the second time that its just displaying how much she had...

Little Spotlight 07/25/2018

It took 5 minutes to marinate, the food Absolutely perfect.(edited)

solved paradox 07/25/2018

she takes out the pork shoulder and sighs as she creates yet another marinade, of course, this marinade time wouldn't take nearly as long... in a bowl, she combines olive oil, a little orange skin and their juice, a little lime skin and 6 limes worth of juice, oregano, then a good amount of cilantro. she takes the beautiful pork shoulder out, pats it dry then dunks and washes it in the new marinade, making sure to hand rub and massage it to work it in, she payed to cut down the 3 hour marinade time.

Little Spotlight 07/25/2018

shorter marinade times were priced with silver. You can guess this skill was perhaps they apotheosis of all housewife skills.

solved paradox 07/25/2018

she regarded it as a god like skill that could easily start religions among foodies everywhere. she then brushes the marinade over the shoulder and lets it broil under the flames for about 3 hours of actual time, letting both the kitchen and dance room fill with an other worldly spice of another culture.

Eventually the kobold came in along with lycan morph.The kobold was first to speak up. "So yer headed out soon kid...were gonna miss ya."

solved paradox 07/25/2018

"hmmm...yeah, i'll miss you all to, but hey~ lets not make this a sad day ok~?" she brought herself to a large smile as she starts to chat with the lycan and kobold, of course she asked kinsqa about the rather...enthusiastic dragon morph.

Little Spotlight 07/25/2018

"Oh her that's bell, a real sweet heart. Can't get enough of me, she's a dragonborn mercenary. Really great gal."

"did you break the news about the shop?"

Little Spotlight 07/25/2018

"Not yet, but she knows this isn't a lifetime gig." The lycan spoke up. "So kid you really are going to join em aren't Ya'?"

solved paradox 07/25/2018

"not permanently, I gotta make sure mom lives comfortably, so i'll make sure to drop by every so often to give her some of my wages." as the pork fat begins to burn, the smell only intensifies to a mouth watering symphony of savory citrus.

Little Spotlight 07/25/2018

"God's, you've taught all this to mirna right?" Cause we won't be able to eat anything of lesser quality than this hun." Kinska joked.

solved paradox 07/25/2018

"yeah, and I'll leave the ingredients for everything in bulk, it should last for the month with proper storage." the time ticked away faster as she talked with her friends, she would buy some cuban bread and heat up the top and bottom of a pan for a makeshift panini press.

Little Spotlight 07/25/2018

"God's this all smells so good. Zilo did right raising you kid." The lycan gave a toothy grin to the child.

solved paradox 07/25/2018

"mirna! don't let them bully you into making seconds!" she called out jokingly as she pulled out the roasted pork shoulder, the layers it on the bread slice with butter and cheese then presses it. she dose this again and again until two sandwiches for everyone was completed and toasty.

Little Spotlight 07/25/2018

(look in general)(alright give me a sec)

Little Spotlight 07/25/2018

these last two months had gone by peaceful. Claudia had left for two weeks to purchase the great big pastor the group was to live at. The day she returned a celebration was held, everyone was as joyful as can be. It seems as though after that month everyone had gained a lower version of the half orcs blessing, though mirna had a more cooking based version. Zilo spent as much as she could with her child, she had prepared quite a few gifts over the months. A lovely woven cloak of ebony threads, the sleek robes fit her excellently. The next gift was a oddly shaped wooden staff. She claimed it was used for healing, she once used as a shaman in her youth... Tomorrow the elf was to come and take you to the estate.

solved paradox 07/25/2018

she had spent time with everyone over these two months, making sure that she knew their stories as well..the last week was spent for her mother, each gift nearly brought her again and again to tears.the last day she used status report on her mother and proceeds to make her favorite meal as a thank you for everything she has done for her. she happily wore the ebony robes in place of her normal clothes.a day prior, she would ask everyone what they wanted for the final meal in the brothels kitchen...

It seems as though her cooking had done wonders for her mother. When there was but one month left they announced that they were going out of business. A few customers were outraged, in the span of year they became the best brothel and within the next few months the best in the surrounding areas, along with being supposedly the best restaurant in the nation.

solved paradox 07/25/2018

shrimp gumbo? she was starting to see some parallels between orcs and louisiana culture...no, not louisiana, a bit more ethnic then that...she wondered if gumbo was the proper name her...of course, she did care about her customers...but they shall be damned if they got between her...she had mom come with her to help cook that night instead of mirna.

Little Spotlight 07/25/2018

The customers came In larger volumes most of them regulars very few new faces though those that came often say they only came for the food. Closing day came and already things were packed up ready to be sent off. All that was left was the beds and kitchen supplies. In these final hours we see the game chilling down on their final meal together. Each with a unique dish...a few teary eyes and a few smiles around.

solved paradox 07/25/2018

she would pack up her...well less then numerous items, a few sets of clothes, a bed sheet and her pillow. after that, she joined in on the meal as well, sitting next to her mom to watch her enjoy her favorite dish.

Little Spotlight 07/25/2018

Dinner went well. When a was said and done and each had finished there meal cluadia stepped up. "Tonight we celebrate. Our good friend here, we've finally done it. We've set ourselves for life, we won't need to worry about anything anymore. Costs a few good years but we earned our own place in this world. So thank each one of you... couldn't done it without all of you." She paused and look to the kid. "and hey, one of us is moving up in the world, here's to you kid."

solved paradox 07/25/2018

she tried to hold back tears of both joy and grief, she didn't know when she would see any of them again...she couldn't help but to start crying in front of everyone, thanking each and every one of them for their kindness.

Little Spotlight 07/25/2018

Her mother embraced her tight during the speech. When all was done everyone would wish you night, and each went of to bed.

solved paradox 07/25/2018

the next day would be the closing of the brothel, and her own departure to the estate...she slept in her moms bed that night.
the next day.
July 26, 2018

Little Spotlight 07/26/2018

When morning came the effort to move the last few items was in full swing. Everything that wasn't nailed down was going. The elf hadn't arrived yet so good byes were in order.

solved paradox 07/26/2018

breakfast was a simple eggs, sausages and pancakes. (chosen between chocolate, strawberry and such.) she made sure to thank everyone and hug them good bye, she would also write down a good amount of recipes, half of which can be done without the otherworldly ingredients but tasted just as good with the prep. "if you ever run out of ingredients, you know where to find me, i'll be happy to help fill out the stocks~!"

Little Spotlight 07/26/2018

Cluadia pulled her outside, obviously whilst you were veiled. "Hey kid, what's the most ingredients you scrounge up for us." A full pallet would cost you more or less 2 gold bits. You had 22 gold remaining.

solved paradox 07/26/2018

she opened up the bulk store, she looked for a full package...but this stuff needed to be preserved, she scrolled through her skills to see what would be of use to her here...

Little Spotlight 07/26/2018

Two other has an item boxes...the cook and the skinwalker...
that strange whisper came once more.

solved paradox 07/26/2018

she smiled and bought the pallet of food appear out of thin air and thud heavily against the ground, filled with all the cooking essentials in bulk~! she watched the two gold bits disappear into the air.

Little Spotlight 07/26/2018

The propritess blinked... "How's about 4 more, this stuff would probably last us 5 years rationed out right." She was already looking over the full pallet in awe.

solved paradox 07/26/2018

"ok~! can I burrow some gold? I just need two per pallet."

Little Spotlight 07/26/2018

Cluadia forked over the gold no question...mirna soon stepped out after hearing the thud. "Hey... is that for us?"

solved paradox 07/26/2018

she nods as the buys 5 pallets, the extra one from her own gold."should be plenty of meat, sugar, ingredients, everything you need to make sure your expectations of food does not drop~!"

Little Spotlight 07/26/2018

The cook winced as the pallets set down loudly... She paused to look over them and reached out for one. Her inventory sucked it up. "That's... okay...hm." she paused and looked at her hand...you could see a menu pop open. "UH...is this what you meant kid?"

solved paradox 07/26/2018

"yeah~! that's my magic paper~! though...it doesn't look like it has all the same stuff that I have..."

Little Spotlight 07/26/2018

she didn't have the magazine ability, she couldn't effect other efficiency, she could clean as well as you without summoning cleaning supplies. It was like the poor man's version of your skills. She had everything else though. Cluadia slapped her back with a grin...before pausing. "Hold on what's that..." She was seeing it to...

solved paradox 07/26/2018

"Its my skill~ I guess working with me so much let mirna have a version of it as well~!"

Little Spotlight 07/26/2018

She looked to her hand...yep cluadia had a version of the skill as well. Hers were suited to a hostesses role. "Huh...so that's how this works."(edited)

solved paradox 07/26/2018

she was slightly giddy, the skill was actively improving and helping the people around her~! its like a parting gift~!

Little Spotlight 07/26/2018

"so do all of us have a skill now?" Claudia asked as she looked through her menu...

solved paradox 07/26/2018

"maybe...I'll go check~!" she excitedly goes around and talks with the other staff to see what kind of perks they got from perfect house.

Little Spotlight 07/26/2018

It seemed true, everyone had similar versions of the skill. Depending on what they did on free time like sewing, practicing dance, or reading they had some minor differences. Everyone had the skill.

solved paradox 07/26/2018

She was slightly glad that the skill did not include anything for the room service portion of their jobs. she made a slight check, they knew where she was going in case they needed more ingredaints, check. they had all the cash they needed, check. they had quality food, check. mom was going to live comfortably, check. kinsqa had told that adventurer that she was leaving? hopefully check.

Little Spotlight 07/26/2018

It was a hard find but yes...room service was at Max and beyond thanks to all he Unnatural charisma... probably why more people were referred to as minute men...you had room service though only at high...perfect housewife am I right fellas~?(edited)

solved paradox 07/26/2018

she didn't know how she felt about this, given she had been only alive for 2 years...but she was 18 in orc years. this confused her greatly but she didn't question it. she could see the elfs cart rolling down to pick her up so she went over to her mom to say her final good byes.

Little Spotlight 07/26/2018

Her mother hugged her Tightly. She pulled out a map and quickly showed her a location on a map. A small village called Entla near the coast. "We be there always."

solved paradox 07/26/2018

She would mark down the village on a map of her own. good...she knew where to find them... "thank you so much for everything...." she was thankful that she had gotten er tears out of the way, she didn't want to show everyone a sad face as she left...

Little Spotlight 07/26/2018

Once the crying had come to an end and all the pallets were stored away the familiar elf would park the horse drawn carriage down before the establishment.
End Infancy
