Me (26F) and my stepsister (28F) are both engaged and in the planning stage for our respective weddings. My mom and stepdad recently invited us both for dinner and we were discussing our plans. My stepsister immediately started talking about how she was being forced to have a small wedding (30-60 people) because her fiancé didn’t have the money to fund the type of wedding she wanted (she’s always been vocal about wanting a lavish wedding). Some of the things she was saying were pretty snarky, but I chose to stay quiet because it isn’t really my business. My mom pointed out how she (and stepdad) had a small wedding and that it wasn’t about how many people were there but that everyone you invited made the day more special. My stepsister made a sarcastic comment about how that was their second wedding and she wasn’t planning to have a do-over, so it had to be perfect.
My mom, who was obviously hurt by her comment, changed the topic by asking me to show her the pinterest board I’d made fo... keep reading on reddit ➡
My (26f) boyfriend (27m) is really into cars. He recently discovered a charity project where they fixed up an old Jaguar. It's worth around $300000. You could buy a ticket for $50 to enter and the money went towards a good cause.
My bf is broke at the moment so I offered to go halves with the ticket. He didn't want to because then the car wouldn't be his completely. I wasn't too worried about it and didn't mention it again. I did however buy a ticket for myself.
Well, I won and as of August 1st will be the owner of the car. When my boyfriend found out he was really excited until I told him that I was going to sell it and put half of it in my savings and invest half of it. he said I can't sell OUR car without consulting him. I told him it's MY car and I can do whatever I want.
He now claims it was all a big misunderstanding and apparently he wanted to go halves but hasn't got around to giving me the money yet. I call bs on it but he keeps saying that we're a couple and we should mak... keep reading on reddit ➡
My friend sent me a disturbing TikTok video today where a girl exposes a website men have been using to share nudes of women local to their area. I went on the board to my state and on the front page I saw one of my sister’s friends, a girl I have known since she was 10 and I know would never post something like that publicly. Her name and face was included in all pics with men requesting more from whatever asshole was sharing them. I went to my local college page and after going through a 2 pages I saw 3 girls I recognized. I had to stop after that because I felt nauseous.
The posts include both location and names as well, incredibly personally identifying information that sometimes had a social media handle. There are town specific threads. All the posts were of women, there were posts requesting women, even of mothers and married women.
Women need to stop sharing nudes, even if you don’t include your face in them they will still post a picture of your face above them in their sick... keep reading on reddit ➡
Waking up sucks. Buy 2 bright lamps and 2 timers. Set them up to turn on automatically 5-15 min before you want your alarm to go off. The lights will help your body realize it’s daytime.
Change your thermostat so the temp goes down about an hr before bedtime and gets warmer about 30 min before you wake up. The cooler temp signals your body to sleep and the warmer temp will naturally help your body wake up.
Learn to plan around “transitions”. It’s easier to start things if you do them when something is ending. Example: Do your grocery shopping every Fri after work. You’re already in the car, so just stop at the store on your way home.
If you need to remember to bring something with you the next day, place it right in front of the exit door so you HAVE to touch it before you leave the house. If it’s something in the fridge, put a sticky note on the exit door’s handle.
Have a “misc” basket in each room. If you’re truly unable to put something away, put it
I saw this a while back here and it was a fun read. I will start: I think GAS is a massive waste of time and resources. Some of you spend more time looking at gear than you do practicing!
Tweet >These layoffs just couldn’t be avoided. The DeVos family that owns the Magic only has a net worth of about $5 BILLION. They just couldn’t afford to continue to pay all of their employees."
I'm no expert but I think Stanley is being sarcastic. SVG joining Twitter is one of the better things about 2020 tho
Otherwise, I love digital.
I wish you could “gift” a digital game that you own to somebody just once (then it can’t be shared again). Then I’d completely leave discs for good.
Guys lets get more puts on this bitch😂😂😂
The Securities and Exchange Commission has launched an investigation of the trading in shares of Eastman Kodak Co. before and after the news last week of a $765 million government loan to help it make drugs at its U.S. factories, the Wall Street Journal reported Tuesday, citing people familiar with the matter. The loan news caused Kodak's shares to climb to as high as $60, before falling back to $15 on Monday, in massive trading volume. The stock had already moved 25% the day before the news was officially disclosed. Executives with stock options, including some awarded the day before the loan became public, were sitting on big paper gains. Kodak shares were down 1.3% Tuesday, but are up 215% in the year to date, while the S&P 500 has gained 2%.
Ps their earnings are out on friday...🤣🤣 they must have done spectacular (sarcasm) 😂

I am a senior in high school. I have a stepsister who is the same age as me, also a senior in high school. My mom and her dad have been married since we were 10. We both started school again yesterday. A couple of hours in my mom came to talk to me. She said that I have money from my grandparents and dad (I lost my paternal grandparents three years after I lost my dad) and how there is more than enough for college with that money and would I share some with my stepsister who does not have any money to help her with college.
They had saved money, I think, but then a few crappy things happened to our house and I guess that was the money they used. Apparently there is no money for my stepsister to go to college.
I don't feel responsible for her going to college though. I also don't feel like my paternal relatives money, that's now mine, should be used for her. She was nothing to them. And if we're being real we have no relationship beyond living in the same house either.
I told her no.... keep reading on reddit ➡
Idk about ya'll but it seems to me, based on the limited information we have, that Karine is in the process of fleeing her abuser. She may have been planning this in conjunction with DV advocates for some time or this could be a last min thing based on Paul's increasingly erratic behavior. In any case, we know that the process of leaving an abuser is the most dangerous time for the victim/survivor. She may be hiding in shelter or hiding with friends and I think it's important that we not aide him in his stalking attempts. It's very clear that he's trying to find where she is, which makes me very nervous for her. I'm mostly a casual watcher and typically only comment on Sundays and Mondays but this felt important to share.
Edit: Just also want to say, I hope this subreddit doesn't shit on her if she does end up going back to Paul. Similar to how we know that leaving is the most dangerous time for victims/survivors of abuse, its also known that it takes - on average - 7 attempts to le... keep reading on reddit ➡
In half blood prince when she wasn’t talking to ron and couldn’t stand to be around him or lavender, she had to sleep in the same room as her and probably had to listen to lavender and parvati talking about ron all the time! Poor thing!
So my gpa got the cancers and it’s honestly been a bit sad the last few days but now the real question comes and that is “what’s next?” Well, he was quite the autistic retard and decided to dump my old college fund all into Apple way back in ‘03 because I enlisted instead. It’s now grown harder than a dick on prom night and I’m looking for a way to buy a new wife that doesn’t already have a boyfriend so what I need to know is should I move it around or keep it rolling all in AAPL like a retarded autist? Edit: I forgot to mention he literally had nothing more than an eight grad education back in ‘47
So I F(18) was recently invited up to my aunt and uncle’s (I’ll call them aunt and uncle B) ranch house for the 4th of July, and told I could bring a friend. Now, this aunt and uncle have a pretty big house. Their ranch house has four bedrooms with queen beds, the master bedroom, and the “kids room” which is a massive room with about ~6 beds (some bunked), and a loft. They’ve got a lot of land around the house too, so I was excited to get some time to goof off and run around with my friend (also F18). I know that other cousins are going to be there, and assume that my aunt B and uncle B thought beds through and everything like that.
The other people invited up to the house were Aunt G and Uncle G and their son M16 who I’ll call F, my Uncle P, and my Aunt and Uncle H.
H’s are baby cannons. They have four kids under the age of 5, none of whom sleep through the night (I’ve been to their house before, it’s horrible).
Anyway, my friend and I get up to the house and learn that WE are exp... keep reading on reddit ➡
I have been living with my new wife and stepdaughter for about 6 months now. She’s 19, almost 20, and I have three sons aged 18, 16 and 15. She’s a really good kid and she’s a good influence on my sons, I really enjoy having her around. My wife and her daughter moved into my house and sold theirs. My stepdaughters father isn’t present in her life, nor is my sons’ mother. All four children share a bathroom.
My sons have never lived for a long period of time with a woman, nor have any of them had long term girlfriends. They had short visitation periods when they were younger but never longer than an hour, so living with two women has been unusual for them.
My eldest son, 18, came to me last week and told me that his stepsister disposes of her used sanitary products in the trash can they share, but doesn’t use toilet roll or sandwich bags to disguise what they are, and it makes him uncomfortable which I think is reasonable. My sons are teenage boys and don’t want to see their stepsiste... keep reading on reddit ➡
