I see this all the time, especially on subs like r/getmotivated.
I'm glad you managed to do something you're proud of, but by implying anyone should be able to, you invalidate the unique struggles of others and you're essentially shitting on those who can't replicate your success.
It's not wholesome or motivational imo, it's basically the same as saying "if I managed it, why can't you?", just worded in a way that disguises it as "motivational" rather than confrontational.
I genuinely wish people would respect the fact that everyone experienced things differently, and their struggles are unique. Just because you managed it doesn't mean everyone should be able to.
EDIT: Calm down people, I'm not offended or angry or ranting or whatever else, simply expressing an unpopular opinion on a sub for unpopular opinions. If you don't like opinions you don't agree with, try r/popularopinions 😅
Bottom line, if you don’t ask this you won’t know and, if you don’t know, there’s nothing you can do to address any potential issues with your candidacy.
By directly asking this question at the end of your interview (make sure you allow enough time) you give yourself the gift of being able to directly address any potential areas of concern your interviewer may have. Often, you can completely calm their fears or restore their confidence.
Two real-life examples:
• For a Director level role, I asked this at the end of the interview and was told the person was concerned about my lack of change management experience. I knew this was a gap going in and was prepared to address their concerns with how I would quickly get in front of this by taking change management courses immediately and get change management certified in my first 30 days. I got the job!
• For a VP level role, I asked this question at the end of my interview and was told that they were concerned I didn’t really understand the job requirements based on my previous responses. I was shocked to hear this as I had studied the role in depth. I was able to quickly address this concern by framing the role responsibilities in my own words and in a manner which showed I clearly understood the job... this allowed me to restore the interviewers confidence and gave us a laugh as we realized it was the question I hadn’t understood earlier when I was asked to explain what the role meant to me.
Give yourself the gift of having a fair chance and don’t worry about putting your interviewer on the spot. Give yourself a chance to hear any concerns and restore confidence if anything is causing them pause. It works and shows you can sell yourself.
As an added bonus you will have much less stress worrying about whether or not they thought you were a strong fit... because you had the courage to ask.
Best of luck!

Wrathborn Hunts suck. They’re tedious to grind lures, uninteresting to play, short, and barely qualify as more than a Lost Sector.
But a Season is more than just its core activity. We ask Bungie to focus more on Strikes of Crucible during a Season, but narrative is just as important an element in the success of the game.
Season of the Hunt has given us more dialogue, and more cutscenes, than some entire expansions have in the past. And it’s good. The Crow is a very well-written character, and our interactions with him across the Season have been phenomenal. This isn’t the usual “oh it’s Destiny so the writing is passable but nothing special”—this Season has had an actually good story with fantastic writing and narrative elements in-game.
Obviously Wrathborn Hunts leave a lot to be desired, but I don’t think it’s fair to say that the Season has been a complete flop. And that’s definitely not the impression I think the community should push to Bungie, especially with how lacking certain Seasons have been for narrative progression. Season of the Hunt hits that “evolving world” stride excellently, and while it’s core activity is a let down, I think it should still be commended for that.
Another long time lurker on this thread and haven't seen too many posts about eBay as an option of making a bit of cash on the side. Everyone knows about eBay and it's highly likely everyone on this thread has used it at some point in the past ; however my recent success (and how easy it's been) is something I thought I'd share.
For years I've sold on eBay, since around 2012 I think. I've now had around £7500 worth of sales when I go into my Seller Dashboard. This has been through selling things I've 'had' to sell e.g. old phones, furniture, consoles etc but during the boredom of furlough during the summer, just before I was asked back into the office - I started to do a full clean out of my room. There's absolutely loads of possessions I had, mainly clothes, that I no longer used/wore I've sold, and that I am now consistently selling that I thought had very little value, and which I assume others do too, and I've ended up pocketing a nice bit of cash doing this.
It was around about June 2020 that I basically raided through all my clothes and underneath my bed and been very decisive about what I want to keep/sell - things I no longer liked, didn't fit etc.. Throw nothing away! I've realised there's always a buyer out there no matter how 'bad' you think a t-shirt is whether in terms of either fashion / colour / cosmetic condition.
Since the success of all my old clothes, I've now started buying clothes to re-sell. I buy them on Vinted and sell them on eBay. Vinted is a dedicated app for buying and selling clothes, however there seems to be a lot of people on there selling branded clothes for next to nothing. I bought 3 x Jack Wills items (desirable brand on eBay) for £1 each. All from the same buyer, shipping was 0.99p with Hermes. I've sold 1 of them items for £12.50 and another one of the items for £8.95. Another success story with Vinted/eBay was buying some Ralph Lauren Joggers for £3.10 and selling them for £25!
A lot of the time it's the listing that sells it. A few good tips I can offer for eBay listings are:
- good lighting in photos, that are straight / symmetrical with surroundings, hang items up instead of laying down on floor
- wash clothes/iron clothes if needed, this can make a huge difference
- keep phone completely still when taking photos (sounds so obvious but the amount of blurry listings I see is incredible)
- Product Title following the format of : 'Brand - Gender - Item - Size - Condition - RRP if necessary' e.g. 'Polo Ral... keep reading on reddit ➡
I woke up this morning to a Reddit notification saying happy cake day. I joined 2 years ago when I began my weight loss journey and I was full of enthusiasm. January 2019 I weighed 263lb as a 5'3 31year old. January 2020 I weighed 216lb. Roll around January 2021 and I'm clocking in at 255lb.
2020 really kicked my ass. Not only covid, but exams, deaths and other stresses. I really am annoyed with myself - 2 years for 8 measly lbs. But I started again yesterday and I'm determined to make January 2022 better! What worked for me first time round was CICO, using MFP religiously, daily weigh ins and having a read of reddit weight loss subs every day so I'm starting these habits again.
Let's hope my 3rd cake day will be worth celebrating!
>"If Harden is traded today, the James-Harden Rockets era was a massive success. ... If he 'failed' it's bc he wasn't quite good enough. He wasn't better than Steph, KD or LeBron. Yeah, they gave him a lot of power. It worked as well as it realistically could've." —
>In the last 40 years, 38 champions have had a Top 20 all time player. Only the 2019 Raptors & 2004 Pistons didn’t. The Rockets problem wasn’t enabling Harden, it was that as great as Harden is he isn’t quite good enough.
I just got done with this incredible experiment, and I couldn't resist sharing.

1. Rootfs setup
Make sure you have debootstrap. I'm assuming an arm64 native ubuntu device already running to which you have mounted the nfs directory at
sudo debootstrap focal /mnt/nfsrootarm64
chrootinto it and run some important pre-setup:
apt install nano network-manager openssh-server
adduser <someuser> sudo
2. Kernel setup
clone the sandcastle kernel, and
make hx_h9p_defconfig , now we need to make quite a few changes to the config. I did them manually by editing .config:
I just turned 41. I am very successful in my career in a very male-oriented field with all the expectations and stigma that entails. I've been with my boyfriend for 3 years. He's not interested in getting married, and at this point that's fine. Everyone assumes this was my dream and that I'm happy but it couldn't be further from the truth. I know there are women who live for this and want to be where I am, and I applaud them for it. It's just not me. I wanted to be a wife and mother and have a just okay job or even just skills so that I could support me and my kids if something happened.
I was overjoyed to get married when I was 24 and the happiest day of my life was the birth of my son. He died of cancer just after he turned one and my husband died a year later, leaving me a widow just before my 27th birthday. I've never been close to my family for reasons that have varied over the years. I have friends, but they got their own families and lives. I had nothing, except for my career. I threw myself into work and found the ability to rise. Having a woman on their team looked good for PR, and a woman that didn't have any "pesky women things" was their ideal.
I finally started dating my boyfriend and we aren't using protection, but I am well aware that the clock is at midnight. He is close to his family, especially his sister. My boyfriend's sister, who is SAHM of 5, has been really pushing for a mentor to her 2 daughters for years, and finally got her chance to push me into talking to them. I've never wanted to because I'm not proud or happy of where or who I am.
So when I was finally pushed into speaking, I told them this. Yes, women can and should pursue whatever career they want, but my "success" isn't because I had a dream and worked hard, it's because my life was so empty and painful that I needed something else to think about. I didn't want to be the "high powered career woman", it's just what I had to do. Being a CEO (not my job title) means nothing to me. Their mother tried to steer the conversion by suggesting that I wouldn't give it all away now that I have it though, but I didn't let her and clarified that I would give it all away to have a family of my own. Honestly, if it would bring me my late husband and a healthy version of my son back, I would quit my job tomorrow and forget the last 15 years.
Now his entire family is mad at me for "enforcing gender roles" and making it seem like being a SAHM (which every woman in his family besides... keep reading on reddit ➡
For those if you who root for currently struggling teams, what are you looking for to signify your team turns a corner? What sort of season would you consider a success (a significant improvement) for your team?
I don't think the reason Manchester United are showing results are due to Ole improving as a manager. Sure, he's improving as well, but he as a manager hasn't improved as much as the players and the team have collectively. His philosophy and methods haven't changed. He's consistent with his decision making, and he's decision making is based on a bonded team that find each other on the pitch. We're starting to see that now, that Ole was always the right man for the job. His mentality is about learning and improving, that's always been the case.
He was always the right man for the job. Now as the players on the pitch are bonding and are believing in him, we're seeing results. Not that the results change his mentality and way of dealing with the players in the dressing room. He's always been a people's person; Kind but ruthless and honest, always laser-focused on his task.
His Manegerials skills have been underestimated since he got here, and we've been judging him by results—that's just that nature of football.
I'm confident that Manchester United will keep improving every single day under Ole. I'm glad to see he's been given time to prove everyone wrong, just like he was underestimated as a player. There's a reason he was called the baby faced assassin. He doesn't look like a threat on the outside, but after time everyone saw how deadly and dangerous he was in front of the goal. He knows stuff others aren't aware of. He's ahead of the game—he's always been.
I'm a biased Norwegian, so take this whatever way you want. Much love.

WE DID IT!! BOOTS TO THE FULL DEFAULT GNOME DESKTOP!
BIG NOTE 0: lol i literally wrote this entire post from Firefox running on the iphone 7 XD big brain time + arm64 rocks
BIG NOTE 1: Holy shit! This blew up! Thank you everyone, I had no idea this was gonna be that big. I'm truly humbled by how much interest it's garnered. I hope I've been able to effectively deliver the inspiration that Linux provides not just to me, not to just to the people reading about this, but to millions of developers, employees, and children alike. It's a tool to change the world, and I've never been prouder to support a worldwide revolutionary example of software which saves devices from the trash, revives old laptops to help children in need, or simply makes a convenient server out of an otherwise useless iPhone.
BIG NOTE 2: It's reached 9to5mac and iDownloadBlog and more! It's been reported that I am running on a "jailbroken" iPhone and that to be able to do this one has to have already jailbroken the phone. That's not correct; in fact there's no possible way for me to jailbreak this iPhone, as its NVMe NAND is downright inaccessible. That is to say, iOS will never be able to boot on this phone. If there weren't a Linux kernel port for A10, one might be able to affectionately call this phone not a Linux phone but a brick. One can pull all of this off without ever jailbreaking the phone. The only reason I'm using checkra1n is for the bootrom exploit and unsigned code execution. In fact, this iPhone had never been jailbroken before flash failure. I got it from my grandma who had the NAND die on her suddenly.
Background: I actually was going to stop at just booting nogui. Believe it or not, I am going to be using this in production; I will actually be deploying this iPhone as a server to relieve capacity issues at my home servers. I'm 16 and run several school/club websites and game servers for my friends and myself, and I'll be distributing some load to the iPhone to relieve the main server!
