So, this is a little one, but it still fullfilled me with satisfaction.
During my last semester of my bachelor degree I already applied for the masters degree at the same university. So I go through the normal application process and get accepted (yay!), but as I didn't have my bachelor degree at that point, I had to produce a certified copy of my degree as soon as I could. Yes, I had to give a certified copy of my bachelors degree to the university who issued that degree in the first place. And no, these were not different deparments. It was all done by one (!) lady in the examination office!
But whatever, weird bureaucracy is weird. And BOY was it annoying at that university. Because all students of my faculty had to got through one lady. And I think she just hated to do anything. Like, seriously, she was so annoyed when you showed up at her office to just do anything. When I turned in my bachelor thesis, she straight up said that she is so fucking annoyed that all the students tur... keep reading on reddit ➡

My partner (31M) and I (31F) have a 9 month old baby. I will call my partner Jack. Jack went to pick up food for us real quick with our baby in the back of the car. From the window I saw them pull back up, and I went to the front door to unlock it and hold it open for them.
When he got out, he waved to a convertible car with the top down that was driving up, and the car stopped. I saw that it was two young girls. Jack starts talking to them, I don't hear the words, but assume they are asking for instructions or something. But this continues for almost 10 minutes and I start getting more and more confused.
I thought he still had the car running the whole time for AC for the baby. It is stifling hot today, 97 degrees at that time.
After a few minutes I sit on the couch for a bit. When I come back up to the door I see that one of the girls has her phone out and it looks almost like she is recording Jack, so I start to open the door a lit... keep reading on reddit ➡
So, I often see a lot of posts/comments of "only lost 5lbs" or "only lost 30lbs and not feeling motivated" etc.
For the love of god, buy your self some weights that go up in increments. Like 5lbs, 10lbs, 20lbs and just lift them up the next time you say "I've only lost x ammount of weight". I think most people will be really surprised at how much weight that actually is. It doesn't matter if you are 20lbs overweight or 500lbs overweight, losing 20lbs is a significant amount of human mass.
Next time you're feeling demotivated because you've only lost 10lbs over 2 months (or whatever length of time), go and pick up that 10lb weight and feel just how much that is, because it is a significant achievement to not be carrying that on your body any more.
On April 24th, 1990, just a day before Tim Duncan's 14th birthday, his mother passed away. On her deathbed,Duncan and his sister made a promise to her that they would both go to college and get their degrees.
That's why, in 1995, Duncan decided to stay in school instead of leaving for the draft. He was expected to be a top 5 pick that year, and Jerry West believed that Duncan could've been the #1 overall pick in that year's draft. Duncan stayed true to his word though, and didn't leave for the NBA until he'd attained a college degree beforehand.
While Duncan was in his final year at Wake Forest, the San Antonio Spurs were looking forward to being NBA championship contenders. The Spurs had been a great team throughout the first half of the 90s, averaging 55 wins a year from the 1989 through 1995 seasons. They had won 55+ games in... keep reading on reddit ➡
As a Indian American it's pretty much been drilled in my head that if I don't go to college I will die poor and broke. But, I recently looked up the most educated states and was dumbfounded to find out that only 35% of the population even has a college degree. What opportunities are there for people who don't end up finishing college? I would have no idea what to do after finishing high school with no other qualifications.
I feel that I (39m) am NTA, but I do care about my dogs' well-being am still bothered after being confronted and would appreciate impartial feedback/judgement. Earlier today (mid morning) I took my two dogs to a friend's house, from which we then went on about a 45 minute walk. High temperature forecast for the day in my location (NW Virginia) was to be around 95 degrees Fahrenheit. At the time of this incident (11:30 am) my car thermometer displayed an external temperature of 89 degrees.
On the way back from the walk, as I had been planning, I stopped at the grocery store for 3 items; a loaf of bread, pre-sliced deli meat, and a ready-to-mix salad bag. As described in the title, I left each of the four windows cracked about 3 inches.
After the walk my dogs, both of which have black coats, were warm and panting, so I had the ac on max for the approximately 5 minute drive from my friend's house to the grocery store.
As I was walking out of the grocery store to my car after... keep reading on reddit ➡
Haha oops World World Z? Definitely meant World War Z. I read my post multiple times before I caught that!
Originally posted in r/olderthanyouthinkiam, but I was told this would be appreciated here.
I work at a national coffee chain as a shift leader. Most of us look pretty young, especially with our masks, but I have tattoos that are visible and bright purple hair that scream 20s rebellion.
The other day a customer came through when I was working the drive thru window. His total was $6.34. He gave me $11.35, so I gave him his $5 change. He says, out loud, “I’m glad you didn’t get confused by that $11.” I had been waiting for this “kids these days...” moment. “Yeah, I mean I have my bachelor’s in math education, and I’m qualified to teach up through calculus, so I’d hope I’d be okay at subtraction.” Watching the backpedal was GLORIOUS. He tried to say something about the local school with a prestigious engineering program where they couldn’t make change at the concession stand, but I knew that he felt it in his soul and it was amazing.

I have one more CS course to complete in the fall before I can graduate (undergrad). You would think by now that I would be able to handle a simple coding challenge. I was feeling good about myself and hopeful for my future but then I applied for this student org on my campus. There’s an interview process which includes a coding challenge and I had a week to submit it. They give challenges based on past experience and I got the hardest one. It’s due soon and I haven’t solved it. The worst part? It says in the description that “it should take you less than two hours”. If I can’t complete a coding challenge just to be accepted into a club is there any hope for me at all? I had an internship where they let me do pretty much all front-end because they were nice and knew that’s what I wanted to do. I got so lucky landing that internship because they basically wanted someone with no experience they could teach. But no job is ever just going to interview someone with questions about front-end... keep reading on reddit ➡
It was hard fought and won due to family problems. I am so proud of myself. I wonder if the novelty will ever wear off!
I was a single mom of 4 who needed to earn a better living for my kids so I went into healthcare with an associates degree which I’ve had 3.5 years now.
I love my career and I want to get my master’s now.
Me and my friend live close to a state where kratom is legal, so we drive across the state line to get it occasionally. Yesterday my friend was arrested with 10oz of kratom and the officer said this to him (an 18 year old): “Son, you do realize that by having this you’ve basically committed murder in the drug world?” and then stated that they could charge him with trafficking. They essentially saw 10oz of kratom as 10oz of heroin.
He’s now facing a couple years in jail unless his youthful defender position or cooperation with the cops saves him. Be careful if you’re in illegal states guys.
Edit: He received a charge for misdemeanor possession of weed and spent the night in jail, he’s out now. The kratom charge is pending until results get back from the lab they sent it off to... they’re confirming the alkaloids as on-hand tests aren’t available. I live in a backwards state. The private investigator that arrested him said “he’d be in touch,” and i’m worried they’ll try to use him. Hop... keep reading on reddit ➡
I got rap sheet a mile long, faced police brutality my whole life, was put into foster care only to be beaten, raped, and molested, then had to fight and steal so I can get a few bites to eat, joined the black spades then joined the bloods when I was 14 so I could at least have a group of people that at least could be labeled as friends.
But to begin with, my first foster home basically wanted free money and abused me hard, beatings with belts, verbal abuse, forced to stay outside all night while they had friends over then one day at school a kid was giving me shit because I ate whatever I could steal from the pantry and I just book to the back of his head and went crazy on him then got expelled and removed from foster care and put into another house where I faced the sexual abuse and forced to suck the guys dick and call myself a useless N word (I don't want reddit police after me) and he would make me bath with him and rub his privates then when I was 10 he tried to fuck me in the a... keep reading on reddit ➡
CHARGE: 2nd degree abuse of power used by the r/fifa mods
I am a regular r/fifa user (check my post history, literally around 3+ a day). I help this community out with my guides, posts and comments. I also regularly post the daily content for them. Was never banned before any of this happened.
However, one day, I decided to stream a pack openings video. Now, it is against the rules to stream twitch on r/fifa (don't ask me why fam) and so my post got removed. Me being the cunning bastard I am, decided to link a twitch stream in my profile and post that on r/fifa.
When I finished the stream, I found out that the mods had muted me for 3 days, and banned me for FORTY-FIVE days. (wow). This sent me into a mental breakdown obvs, since r/fifa was like a home to me.

This is coming from someone who absolutely adores pop music, but I feel a certain irritation towards certain songs that have acquired a cult following with fans treating them as the 10 Commandments on audiobook when in actuality, they aren't as excellent as they're made out to be.
Examples of this (for ME) are Can't Get You Out of My Head by Kylie Minogue and Sparks by Hillary Duff. It seems that every week there's a viral tweet about how these songs were so ahead of their time, paid dust, underrated, etc. I personally don't find either of the songs as revolutionary as people say. In other words, they're so "underrated" that I find them to be overrated.
There are certain songs that have cult staus that I find genuinely deserving of the hype (RAWM, Into You, Style, Walking on Air), and I have my personal taste reasons to explain these picks. However, there are some songs that don't get left alone by people to a degree that annoys me.
I am also aware of the fact that some of you ma... keep reading on reddit ➡
I am so upset right now I feel like i'm going to get sick. I dont know what to do.
I'm from Illinois and the college I attended is also in that state.
9 years ago I was 6 credits short of graduation, but my internship had a position open up out of state and asked if I was interested. When I said yes, they asked me to talk to the school to see if I could take the classes online while I worked.
I talked to my advisor and I was told he would override the last 6 credit hours due the internship and another elective course that could qualify as what i needed. He even emailed my boss saying something along the lines of
'I wouldn't do this for many other students, congrats you have one heck on an employee' (or something like that)
All of the conversations between my advisor and I were saved to my student email.
So I graduate, move out of state and start my job.
Fast forward 9 years and 2 jobs later.

Maybe a degree that they found to be useless or hasn’t helped them get a job? If so, what do you do for work now? Did you end up studying something else? I’m trying to figure out what to major in but I don’t want to get a degree that won’t help me.

After my 3rd miscarriage at 10 weeks, that came back genetically normal I started with a very well regarded fertility clinic in my town. I flagged that I was concerned I had an immunology issue, as I have eosinophilic eosophagitis, asthma and allergies. I had started researching and asked about the Bondi Protocol (Prednisolone and Clexane). They told me it was not evidence based, and too risky. I was told I might have "bad luck" and to try again.
My fourth loss was early, only 5 weeks and again I raised taking immunosuppressants. Again I was informed another patient got cushings and there was no evidence based reason. Was told to try again and if it doesnt work try clexane.
I had another loss at 5 weeks followed by a hysteroscopy. I pushed to have my Natural Killer Cells tested. They informed me it was an expensive waste of time, not evidenced based and no point. I said do it anyway.
Got my results today, not only did they come back positive but I'm in t... keep reading on reddit ➡

These two guilds are acting in tandem to push players from either faction out of the areas. It is frequently the case that players are mind controlled/camped/mind visioned(to determine location) etc. If you are fighting Final Boss, Goof members will MC the kill targets and heal them etc. Complete faction collusion and the abuse of in-game mechanics to greif other players with no counter-play. If you are competing for tags with either of the two guilds, the other will send a hit squad to clear you out. Is there any action that blizzard will take to salvage the event and preserve the integrity of the event?
Full disclosure, I am 15, and have recently discovered this sub, FIRE seems very appealing to me, as being a teenager, i dont like work.
Seriously though, I was reading some posts on this sub and it seems like alot of people work in tech and finance. I have dabbled a bit in very basic computer science (HTML, very very basic) and it seems intriguing, ditto for finance as I am interested in the stock market.
Apologies if that's a bit off topic, but I justed wanted to give some background into what I am interested in.
Basically, what is the best industry/degree to get into for FIRE in terms of pay and growth?
Also, if you are FIREing in an irregular manner, what's your story?
I know there are already plenty of posts on this case on this subreddit, but Asha’s disappearance still keeps me up at night. Here is the Wikipedia page on the Asha’s disappearance if you are unfamiliar: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Disappearance_of_Asha_Degree
I’m going to include part of a comment I wrote here a while back that will explain my thinking on the case:
It’s just so hard for me to conceptualize a 9-YEAR-OLD leaving her home in the middle of the night in the middle of a thunderstorm, walking along a pitch-black highway, dipping into the woods and then hiding in a creepy ass shed that she had to walk uphill the length of two football fields and cross a three-foot ravine to get to.
What motive could have been so strong to cause her to do this? I’m a fully grown man well over six feet who doesn’t spook easily and I would probably be scared shitless in this situation.

14 hrs studying/week x 16 weeks/semester x 8 semesters
So does this mean I can add “B.S. in OSRS” to my resume?
Edit: A lot of people are saying it takes even longer to max, i.e. 3500hrs. So yeah, basically a master’s degree worth of studying.
Edit 2: including lectures it would be around 3750 hours for the degree.
