I'm using a throwaway because I don't want people finding my main account.
I (18f) have a friend (also 18f) who was recently married. We can call her Jane. She went to my sixth form and although she dropped out when she got pregnant, we've stayed in touch.
Because they're going to be having a baby, they don't want to spend any money on a big wedding, but they still want a small celebration. Her parents have a nice back garden that it's possible to social distance in. Jane contacted me and asked if she could borrow some things for her wedding outfit. I didn't double-check (I probably should have) but I assumed that she wanted a "something borrowed" like a necklace, hairpin, etc. She asked me for a dress.
It's not a very expensive dress, but it would work quite nicely for a simple wedding. I can see why she wants to wear it, but the problem is that Jane is bigger than I am. I pointed that we were different sizes and asked if she wanted to try it on first. Jane said that her mother, wh... keep reading on reddit ➡
Hey all, long-time lurker here, first time poster. I want to share a budget template with the community that I've been iterating on for the past two years. Budgeting has completely changed how I perceive my income, expenses, and savings, and I can't imagine where I'd be today without it. I hope this template can help others out there who are looking to get a better understanding of their finances or don't know quite where to start.
Before jumping into the template, I just want to give a little background on myself. For years I always thought myself as decent with my money. I never found myself too deep into debt, saved a little here and there, and always managed to get by without too much worrying. Well, that was all fine until I ran into an unexpected financial hardship. Suddenly, budgeting became not just a smart thing to do but imperative.
Looking back, I wish I'd started budgeting sooner. I really didn't realize how little I knew about where my money was g... keep reading on reddit ➡
I've been working as a supervisor at a small juvenile detention center for the last 14 years. The state of Oklahoma cut its juvenile affairs budget and my center is a casualty. I basically spent most of my shift supervising and interacting with troubled youth who have committed all kinds of crimes from runaway all the way to murder and anything you can think of in between. I have broken up fights, been threatened to be shanked, called every name you can thank of, but also had some fun moments too. AMA.
So I'm looking to complete my new PC build with a 1440p monitor.
To highlight, my main criteria includes 1440p, 144hz Refresh rate, minimal ghosting (1ms response).
I'm currently sitting on a very mediocre 75hz 1080p monitor which has... 'issues' let's say (It seems to think that white is grey).
I've been looking on youtube etc and found a couple of models that seem of interest and wondered if anyone could help me to understand whether its worth spending that bit more or holding on to to that sweet extra cash..
The only one I can think of is Billy Joe Armstrong used a Fernandes strat copy as his main guitar for years. Any other examples?
If you're excited, you're excited. You already won. You've got a game you're looking forward to that you're probably gonna like. So what's the problem with people saying they're not so excited?
I really don't like the attitude I see in nearly every upcoming game that having any expectations of a quality product is "toxic." These games aren't freeware. They cost money and they're used as store fronts to sell in game purchases. They're trying to make a sale, and if a prospective customer isn't interested, it's the creator's fault.
I think the thing that bothers be most is the claims that games are very hard to make and that we couldn't do any better. Well, no shit, right? That's why we're paying for them to make the games. They're hard as hell to make. I could get it if it were a personal friend making the game and we were just being polite, but this is a studio with hundreds of people. Why do people feel they should be immune from criticism?
Some of my biggest considerations are:
- good camera
- good battery life (i've had my iphone 6 for 4 years and battery is decent, but runs down quickly when using GPS as i work a delivery job)
I've mostly been looking at pixel 4a and iphone SE. While I like that the pixel 4a has more storage, better night time photos, better battery, and a headphone jack, I am leaning towards the iphone SE because I feel that it might have more longevity. Any advice would be appreciated
There are so many great used options for that price that I'm curious what the rest of you would pick. For a daily, I would want something comfortable with decent features that's not a total bore, so either a used Audi A7 or previous generation Panamera would be great. Heck, the G80 sport is also in that price range, and while it's not really sporty, it's a very comfortable cruiser.

I highly recommend making oatmilk at home, especially if you're on a budget.. At some point I have lived on such a tight budget that when buying milk I was thinking about it a few times. Now I don't drink regular milk anymore for other reasons (health restrictions, lifestyle choice and ethical reasons)..
Oatmilk is so incredibly cheap and can be made in under 10 mins.
50-100 g oats (steel cut, the ones that aren't whole pieces)
~ 1 litre of water
2-3 dates or 1 tea spoon of sugar
a pinch of salt
Mix everything in a blender and then pour it into your desired bottle using a strainer or even better cheese cloth. I recommend shaking it once a day or so, or at least before you use it.
The oatmilk tastes best after 1 to 2 days because of the fermentation happening. It gives the oatmilk a sweet taste and makes it less water-like.
I hope at least one person finds this helpful :)
Hey what's up everyone, just got my final haul for a little while today in the mail so I figured I would type out this review for you. I've been on this sub for over 4 years now but on a different account, and I'm here to bring you guys a massive review on everything I've gotten ever rep wise! Im sorry if this review isn't that solid as you're used to but I've never actually gone through with making one for real. Anyways lets get started, and if there's any questions I'll be sure to answer everything in the comments. My ratings are based on my personal reasonings and not on how 1:1 it is, most of the items in the haul are budget items so for no reason at all do I expect any of these things to be even close. Most of these items were impulse buys as I had been off the sub for over a year and was hopping back into things. Most felt like essentials and repfam staples so I went crazy on buying stuff, as I bought more and more I started going with less and less crazy stuff. I thrift all my c... keep reading on reddit ➡
My first post: post
I wanted to thank people for giving me some good advice, she was hiding a lot from me. She has been bank rolling her parents way of life. I have only met her parents a few times and i am an idiot for not seeing it earlier.
Her dad isn't a doctor he is a dentist, and his practice has not really been profitable for a long time according to her. So she has basically been giving almost all of her paycheck to her family to cover this deficit. In general i think her parents are total pieces of shit, since last time i was there they were very well off (big house, multiple cars, etc).
She showed me her finances, after i gave her an ultimatum that she needed to go to therapy for her penny pinching or i didn't see this relationship working out. She is more or less completely broke, she has no savings, no nothing. All the money goes to her parents.
I told her how... keep reading on reddit ➡
It was low cost and turned out great. https://imgur.com/gallery/zZKX4fa
I eat half an avocado a day, but they’re expensive (plus I sometimes let them go bad... oops).
I used to put some avocado oil in my protein shakes, but I was told that’s not the same as eating the actual avocado (is that true?)
Keep in mind, I’m terrible at/hate cooking so I eat like a college kid. No fancy preparation for me.

Edit: Thanks for your input everyone! So many good suggestions. I will definitely keep those in mind for future cooking adventures!
Here's what we ended up making: seared scallops with a lemon-garlic pan sauce and some risotto. Not perfectly executed, but very tasty, and something we've never made before. Thanks again!
I'm in t h a t mood, and I'm looking to expand my collection of decks. For reference, I already own 3 lightly modified precons, them being Timeless Wisdom (blue control), Merciless Rage (Rakdos Madness) and Ruthless Regiment (Human Tribal). I'd love a group-huggy politicy deck that still has plenty potential to win, but focuses on enabling other players in their plays while still being fun and engaging to play for me. An example could be [[Kenrith, the Returned King]] or [[Braids, Conjurer Adept]].
So what commanders have you had great experience playing that the other players welcomed the sight of? Cause I'm not looking for anything to win with on turn 8, I just want a casual, relaxed and fun game of commander.
