My son has always hated falling asleep. I would sit with him and like every frustrated parent, when I would get up from my chair, he would reach out and say "Where are you going mom? Stay here." So instead of saying "Are you awake?" before getting up (which invariably always wakes someone up it seems); I started saying "I love you." In doing that I noticed a few things. (a) If my son was awake, he was comforted and usually went to sleep within minutes of me saying this (b) The response back was always, "I love you too mom" which would leave us both in a great mood for going to bed and (c) if there was no response, I knew I was safe to get up. I do this with my husband too and the affect seems to be the same.
My mom was the type of person who HATED pictures. She thought she was ugly so she avoided them like the plague. Most memories I have involve her behind the camera, not in front of it.
She passed away unexpectedly 5 years ago, yesterday was the anniversary, and when she died my siblings and I combed through family photos, online pictures, anything we could think of to find some way to see our mom again. There are only 3, two of which are a side view and the other is blurry.
I keep her driver’s license because it’s the only head-on, smiling picture I have to remember her by.
Please don’t avoid taking pictures if you have children. Because I promise you we do not see ugly, we do not see fat, we do not see flaws...we see our parents, our mommy, the person we love so much and will miss so much when you pass. Let us have a way to look at you again even after you’re gone.
Edit: because of this post, a beautiful person offered to clear up the only blurry photo of my mom I was left with .... keep reading on reddit ➡
My youngest daughter is 22. Whenever she calls, she ends her calls with, "Love you." And I say, "You too."
At our last talk, right when we were about to get off the line, she asked, "Why don't you ever say I love you back?" I told her, "Because meaningful love is shown through actions."
And she said, "I want you to say it." And I said, "Sweetie, you can't force me to say it." Then she said, "Then I guess I won't talk to you again until you're ready."
I thought she was joking, but when I walked in the living today, my wife was on the phone with her, and she said, "Wait, hun, your Dad just walked in" and she said that she didn't want to talk to me unless I said I loved her.
Even my wife laughed because listen...
Nobody on my side of the family says I love you. My parents never said it to my siblings and I, my biological uncles and aunts don't say it, and my grandparents don't say it.
They would say things like, "I'm proud of you", "You make me so happy", "I'm so glad you're my c... keep reading on reddit ➡

Being a dad now it’s rare for me to get so encapsulated with a game. More often than not I find myself forcing myself to like a game until I enjoy it.
Sometimes I even ask myself if I genuinely love games, or am I more married to the nostalgia and freedom I had as a child.
Breath of the wild is different. I can’t remember the last time I sat down and was fully immersed into a game. It’s the only game in recent years that’s made me feel like a kid again. I love the exploring, I love the art style and the way it’s designed.
The openness makes you explore and be free, it’s so meditative.
Seriously the game development deserves so much recognition for this. This game genuinely feels it was made more for passion & love than for sales, and that is a rarity in today’s over consumer society.
EDIT: a spelling mistake
As a second gen Chinese American myself, I am really tired of people being a complete snob over authenticity to the point that they distort the history and culture behind Chinese cuisine.
I've had enough of people trashing American Chinese food as "not the real thing" or even worse, "Chinese food dumbed down for American people" (like WTF?!)
While I don't deny that Chinese food in America is different from Chinese food on the mainland, that doesn't make it any less worthy. Sure, it has been changed to some extent to suit local palates, but that's pretty much the same thing with Chinese food in the diaspora in general. There is also Indonesian Chinese, Filipino Chinese, Singaporean Chinese, and even Peruvian Chinese food-yet nobody calls these variants as "fake" or "inauthentic".
Moreover, people had to make adaptations to the cuisine anyways in the new land due to the lack of available ingredients that they usually had back home. No Chinese broccoli? Use western broccoli instead... keep reading on reddit ➡
I'm not saying your partner or my partner can't have a celebrity crush, but having a crush that you gggguuuuusssshhhh over is lowkey kinda rude and hurtful to your partner. I get what a celebrity crush is, but im watching my girl get so wet to nick jonas to a point that I just straight feel like...idk like im less than what she wants.... I just don't think its fair to be so blatantly obsessed with a celebrity in front of your partner.

Kenny mentioned on Inside the NBA that Steph might not be able to shoot as deep as Dame.
Kenny followed up saying, "I don't think you can shoot as deep as him Steph, gotta see it when you come back."
Tell me, What is that anime that you love but that is not known by many people? And Why is so good to you?
The top moderator for the sub in question revoked the ban and made a comment on this thread condemning crappy mod behavior. He is truly the maddest lad.
I want to say, please don't send the mods any threats. Having that happen wasn't my intention and despite my beef, no one deserves that.
Thank you all for the support.
This may seem petty, because it doesn't "really matter", but I've had a really bad week and this just kind of broke me. I know its Monday.
There's actual real shit in my world that's not going well, but somehow what happened today is the straw that broke the camels back.
For instance: A client that my business did over $50k worth of work for falsely claimed that our completely valid charge of their credit card was "fraud". The chargeback put my account $30k in the negative during a time where our cashflow has been an absolute nightmare. The client is now attempting to "renegotiate" the contract for less than a 4th of what is owed. I don't yet k... keep reading on reddit ➡
I can't blame Boyega, Finn got the short end of the stick after Force Awakens and his character started out as a joke, the Janitor turned Stormtrooper, to then remain a joke for the rest of the series. By the end, he was running around, screaming REEEEEEYYYYY every five minutes. It was tragic.
Michelle Pfeiffer has talked about how much she hates GREASE 2. She was insecure about her singing and she also resented the fact that her character had no identity.
Ray Fisher probably prefers to forget Joss Whedon's Justice League has never existed.
Elizabeth Taylor hated BUTTERFIELD 8 so much that even winning an Oscar didn't change her mind. She was forced to do the movie while grieving over Mike Todd's death.
I’m getting up at 4am to take my bro to the airport for 4 hours round trip. I’m not getting paid, I just love driving that much. The feeling of going somewhere and the act of driving is just amazing and never gets boring. That’s all I have to say.
Edit: I say “never”; but miss me with 3 hours of stop and start highway traffic.
