2023.06.05 04:45 mattzene Purposely failing a class to retake for an A?
So I'm working on an EET degree online and kind of overloaded myself this semester. I'm working 50 hours, taking 15 credits, and have other commitments outside of work and school. I'm currently working on my calc homework (which I can get an A in and do not want to risk losing that), but my other class I missed an assignment deadline and now can only get a B. Problem is, I don't think I'll have time to turn in the assignments on time this week because calc is taking so long. If I get 0s on those, my best grade is a C. I currently have a 4.0 which I don't want to ruin on a class I know I can easily get an A in if I had more time to work on it. Is it worth just failing it so they will let me retake it?
Edit: I'm not concerned about paying for the class again if I do purposely fail it

2023.06.05 04:43 Asleep_Cold9028 [low effort Sunday] The real reason Batman didn't give Catwoman give head
For contexts sake, awhile back there was a bit of an uproar because a deleted scene from the Harley Quinn animated show would have implied that Bruce and Seline not only had sex, but that Bruce would have performed cunninlingus. If you don't know what that is, ask you parents kids. The Harley Quinn show while a cartoon, is an adult show and that wouldn't have been at all out of place. It was however pulled because DC executives didn't think it fit the character. Alot of people for some reason thought this was bad move. They like to spin it as a bunch of old school executives not being able to handle such an important character doing something soo icky and even unmanly. This is obviously ridiculous who else could be more in touch with the haracters' decision making than stuffy executives in charge of a massive, multibillion dollar company. The reason that Batman didn't eat the the cat lady's kitty is quite simple.
Batman just isn't cool enough to give a lady that soppy toppy. He mealplan is too specific he doesn't know how to eat bush burger properly. Alfred makes him eat outside of the batcave so he's never had to go downstairs to eat. Yeah, dinner beneath a bridge is just too low class for a guy like Bruce Wayne. He's got the too much money so an Egg McMuff just isn't on the menu for a guy like him. He's also inherited his wealth so of course he never had to go pearl diving. This is a credit card rich boy doesnt swipe. Plus to keep his physique he has very particular diet so Peaches and cream and that Pink lemonade is something he just doesn't wanna risk. Yeah he's also really antisocial so paying lip service isn't his strong suit. Thanks his parents death, he's not religious so he ain't praying at that altar with no family I can't imagine him licking any envelopes. He's real private he doesn't like to whistle in the dark. To be fair Selina doesn't really like to be tied down so if anything she fly the coop before he chewed the cooch.
On the other hand, a certain 6'3, Red-caped, Nietzschean dream boat would definitely be ear-deep in a spunky lady's midnight snack. Don't pretend that Superman doesn't know how to blow some tunes yeah I bet he's real good on a harmonica. He's from Kansas so he definitely knows how to go south. When he was a boy he always made sure to clean his plate not much has changed. Yeah his mother taught him to be tidy so he can definitely clean that cage out. He's from a working class family so you know he's had a box lunch. Don't try to tell me farmboy has never gone whisking through a wheat field. Superman is the best of all of us so he can speak in many tongues. I've never seen him eat McDonald's but personally I think he likes Arby's. Superman would never hit a lady but he'd tongue punch her guts. After a long day of saving the world superman likes some refreshment in the form of that juice box.

2023.06.05 04:42 BlackTemplars Hawaii - two week honeymoon trip review Dec 2022
Have some time to finally write a trip review for Maui
and the Big Island of Hawaii
for my honeymoon in December 2022 for two weeks. Mid December and left for home on Christmas Day. This was our first time redeeming cc points for anything, so lots of trial and error and lessons learned.
My wife and I had gotten married in October and were actually not planning going on honeymoon until Spring 2023 until we researched further and managed to make December 2022 work in our favor. We started planning and booking reservations TWO months before our trip. We are very fortunate to have done it in that time span and managed to make almost everything work out.
IAD - DTW - SEA - OGG on Delta, First Class
- First time using a lounge ever was at DTW. We had access to the Sky Club there. Pretty good food here, very roomy. No time to lounge in Seattle
- only I used points for this one way flight. Transferred 95,000 Amex points to Delta. Wife paid $958 before tax for hers through the Amex travel portal. I think she got a steal as I had written on a note somewhere that the cash cost was $1533 through Delta directly but cannot remember if that was the increased price after purchasing the tickets or at time of purchase, otherwise it would have been 1.61 CPP.
- Very nice service in first class. Abundant alcohol and food was very nice as well.
Got to Maui late in the night and picked up our rental car, a Chevy Equinox, with Enterprise. Used my Hilton Aspire
to get 7x points.
One night at Courtyard Marriott
by the airport and paid $500.
It was the best we could do with our timing.
Day 2 - 6
Breakfast and lunch was by the food trucks near Costco. Shopping nearby for supplies for our vacation.
Meals (Costco food trucks):
- Mo 'Ono Hawaii acai bowls
- Da Nani Pirates fish tacos
- fresh coconut water
5 nights at the Grand Wailea
- 440,000 HH points
Left to check into our resort the Grand Wailea
in Wailea. Both the wife and I are Hilton Diamond
members. Mine through the Hilton Aspire and she has status through actual stays. We booked these nights through her account and using all Hilton points. Each reward night was 110,000 points and we got the 5th night free. So 440,000 points total.
This resort was huge and immaculate. Words can describe how nice this place is and the customer service is SUPERB. Literally, the best we have ever experienced. You only have to see and experience it for yourself. My wife and I still talk weekly about the Grand Wailea.
We booked the Terrace View - 1 King Bed
as the Standard Night Reward and upon arrival we were upgraded to the Deluxe Ocean View - 1 King Bed
in the Molokini wing. Breathtaking views! Avg cash price so this room type is around ~$988 before taxes, fees so it comes to 0.89 CPP (if not including taxes, fees in the total). All meals, incidentals, shopping, and experiences were put onto my Hilton Aspire. Daily food and beverage credit was $25 each for the two of us and used usually at their divine but pricey breakfast buffet. No resort fees charged for booking with points which saved us hundreds of dollars. We immensely enjoyed ourselves at this resort and the lush, manicured surrounding area.
- Lineage Maui. A favorite in the Wailea area
- Morimoto - Maui. Getting the sticky ribs is a must. As well as the ishi yaki buri bop. The guy won Iron Chef because of that, apparently
- Wolfgang Puck's Spago at the Four Seasons. Got the best seat in the house here. Get the "Poke" cones and Hawaiian snapper
- Mama's Fish House. Literally the hardest restaurant to get on Maui. Must reserve 4-6 months in advance. I called two months before our trip and managed to get a table for the two of us for late lunch. We arrived and we got the best seat in the house overlooking the water! Shout out to Mike for his superb service.
- Lahaina Grill. Another favorite for tourists and locals
Experiences: renting a cabana at the Grand Wailea pool, spa day at the Four Seasons with outdoor hale beachside, Wailea Beach, hiking Twin Falls, Baby Beach, Haleakala National Park
Day 7 - 8
Two nights at the Hotel Wailea, Relais & Chateaux
using Amex FHR
Paid total ~$3400 for the One bedroom, Luxury Suite, Ocean View
. Unfortunately, no upgrade upon checking in. Hotel was sold out. Daily breakfast in the form of $30 credit per person and $100 food/bev credit given through the FHR. This stay triggered the $200 FHR credit for my wife's Amex Plat
Quiet, small resort, adults only. We enjoyed our stay here and loved our room. Bed was harder than what we were use to and it was far from the beach. Otherwise we loved the restaurant and the ability to "get away". One of the top hotels in Maui and all of Hawaii. Price tag to boot.
- The Restaurant at Hotel Wailea. Another great dinner watching the sunset
- Leoda's Pie Shop. Any pie is great, get the banana cream though. Lines out the door
- Merriman's Maui. Another top-notch restaurant with hard to get reservations. One of my personal favorites the whole trip. Another sunset dinner favorite
Experiences: cabana and pool day at Hotel Wailea, spa day at Montage Kapalua Bay. Outdoor hale with hot tub. Big Island of Hawaii
Day 9 OGG - KOA (Big Island) round trip booked with Hawaiian Airlines
. $106 for each of us before baggage fees. Booked direct using wife's Amex Plat.
Arrived to the Big Island and rented a Toyota Prius though Budget. Paid using Hilton Aspire
Day 9 - 15
We booked the Hilton Waikoloa Village using all Hilton points, 6 nights in total with one night free. 350,000 pts in total used, 70,000 each night. Initially the standard room redemption was for the Palace Tower Resort View - 1 King Bed
and was going for ~$540 a night before taxes/fees so CPP was 0.77. We realized even before our trip that the Palace Tower and old, needed a refresh, and was terribly far from the beach and the parking lot. We asked for an upgrade when we checked in and was given the option to move to the Makai Tower - Ocean View 1 King Bed
for an additional $75 per night. We promptly took this offer. This room runs ~$694 per night before taxes/fees and if I subtract the $75 per night, I calculate this to be 0.88 CPP. The Makai tower was much better, our room overlooked the ocean and part of the resort. Frankly, Palace looked like dogshit. Daily F&B credit was $18 for each person. Incidentals again went onto my Hilton Aspire
Towards the end of our stay, we stayed at the DoubleTree Hilo
using 50,000 pts. Room rate was $308 before taxes/fess. CPP was 0.61. This was on the other side of the island and very far from Hilton Waikoloa so we decided to stay overnight there after hiking Volcanoes NP instead of driving to the west side in the middle of the night.
- Brown's Beach House - at the Fairmont Orchid
- Kilauea Lodge
- Merriman's - Big Island
Experiences: Kauna'oa Beach, Mauna Kea sunset and stargazing (this is a must!!), Captain Cook monument snorkeling, Pu'uhonua o Honaunau National historical park, Punalu-u Black Sand Beach, Volcanoes National Park, Akaka Falls.
Trip home: OGG - LAX - IAD. United, First Class
- Used 220,000 Chase UR rewards to redeem this flight for the both of us. Cash price of each ticket was ~$1485 before taxes/fess. CPP was 1.35
- Service was fine, food in 1st class was not very memorable.
- Did not have time to get into the Centurion lounge at LAX
Overall, an EXCELLENT trip. We were amazed and thrilled to do so much in two weeks and in such short notice. Again, only two months to plan once our dates were finalized. Between my wife and I, we have the Amex Plat and Gold, Hilton Honors and Aspire, and CFU, CSP
. Each card strategically used during our trip. The FHR credit triggered for my wife, and my Aspire triggered the $250 resort credit. If I had to guess, we saved ~$15,000
or more by redeeming CC points. Hope this data point helps some of you trip planning, happy to answer any questions.

2023.06.05 04:41 lolmmayo Life is looking okay for once
Usually I post shit on depression memes and stuff but I feel good and I’m posting here because I don’t want to make people feel bad who are still in the throes of depression!
Now listen. I have persistent depressive disorder (formerly dysthymia) so I’ve been running on the “life fucking sucks” mentality for most of my life. But things aren’t too bad right now. I mean yea I get sad. Want to off myself but that’s par for the course. That’s just usual brain shit (on meds + therapy) but I honestly feel a bit better mood wise. I got my first fucking job guys! A bit later than most (20) but I got a job! I start in the fall and I’m very excited! And also I’m gonna go through ADHD testing soon so maybe that’ll give some more clarity right. I am super happy I got a job. Yea it’s probably like the best thing that’s happened in my life, I mean maybe that’s ridiculous because most people get jobs when they are young but. I am proud of myself and very happy about it. Especially since it’s something I was doing for FREE before. I get to pursue my passions and shit for money.
I’m also doing really well in a class that I was dreading! I hate humanities because they require more thought than science (or at least for me lol) but my English class is going great! I was scared because analysis is not my strong suit (may just be pessimism) but I got As on both my analysis so far! It’s not the most fun class but I’m still doing it!
And I’m noticing that a lot of my depression songs… aren’t even relatable anymore, hahah! No more needing someone to love me. I literally got rejected the other day and it felt fine. I talk with strangers all the time now too. I even went to a FOOD festival the other day! I’d never do that like a few years ago. Maybe my brain is maturing a bit or something
I can see a future. Even if it means I’ll always be a little depressed. It’s just like any chronic condition. Just gotta work with it :)
TLDR: I got a job and life feels alright!

2023.06.05 04:38 0ortiz Questions about documenting parameters in functions.
In the project I am working on, there is a class called Documents that contains several functions for document manipulation using an API. However, all these functions share two common parameters: the API token and the encryption key.
This raised the question of the best documentation practice for these parameters. While documenting the parameters is important to ensure understanding and correct usage of the functions, repeating the documentation of these parameters in every function can be redundant and inefficient.After considering some options, I would like to suggest two possible approaches:
1 - Documenting in the class: I can document the common parameters, namely the API token and the encryption key, in the docstring of the Documents class. This way, it is clear to users that all functions within the class require these parameters. Additionally, this avoids excessive documentation repetition in each individual function.
2 - Documenting in the module: If the functions are defined in a specific module, I can document the common parameters at the module level. This approach allows users to see the required parameters when importing the module, providing a clear overview of the common requirements for all functions.
Based on these options, I would like to hear your opinions and suggestions. Which approach do you think is more suitable for this project? Do you have any other suggestions that could improve the documentation and facilitate the understanding of parameter usage?

2023.06.05 04:35 fictionalmenluvr my ex-bestfriend is in her dream relationship and i can’t help but want to ruin it for her
we’re both currently in our senior year of highschool, and i’ll call her D. D and i had been best friends since 1st grade, so about 12 years now.
this year, a little after a month or so after i broke up with my girlfriend (who is a friend of D’s) i began crushing on this guy in my class. i didn’t know, but D started liking him as well. she knew that i liked him, since i told her after struggling with my feelings for a bit (was it too soon after the break up?????? was this a rebound type thing???? etc.) but i didn’t know she liked him, and he was never on her radar until i liked him.
anyways 2 weeks in once she starts liking him, she confesses. he rejects her (nicely) and then she tells him that i like him as well, and then starts saying all of these lies about me. like, i “cheated in my last relationship”, i “jump from person to person” and basically implying that i’m a slut and an all-around horrible person. the guy then tells me what she said (since we’re friends and kinda close) and a week or so later i basically confront her and end the friendship.
this was all in march.
now, it’s june, and D is in a new relationship with this guy. she’s liked him since gr 9 and has also done some pretty weird things, like snap-stalking him and irl stalking him at school.
i want to tell him all of this crazy shit D has done but i also feel so fucking petty at the same time. and then i feel like it’s okay to be petty, since she almost ruined something for me, because the guy likes me back we just don’t wanna get into anything in high school, plus she told a lot of other people she told him, so now i just feel odd. i have a group of much better friends that hasn’t been affected at all by what’s been going on between me and D, but i still can’t help but want to ruin things for her.

2023.06.05 04:20 Creative_Storage6088 Classpass- is it worth it?
Do people with Classpass think it’s worth it? I’m trying to decide which style of workouts I like the best. I’ve tried OTF and some spin classes, but I’m interested in trying out yoga and more functional strength straining classes. For people who use classpass in the Denver area: what plan do you have and how many credits are classes at boutique gyms? Thanks!

2023.06.05 04:19 Punny-Aggron If RWBY characters were Dungeons and Dragons characters
I was inspired by XP to level 3’s series on if the Lord of the Rings was DnD
to write this post. Originally I was going to go through each volume writing it as if it was a DnD campaign, but I thought that that was a lot of work, so I decided to instead write a post about if each character was a DnD character.
Something to note: I’m very new to DnD and I haven’t had much experience playing it, so if something sounds off to you or you think something should’ve been done differently, that’s probably why. Also, I tried my best to give everyone races that made sense to me, but not everyone got that treatment (I couldn’t come up with anything for Pyrrah)
Okay, let’s begin:
Ruby Rose’s player is someone who cares a lot about combat and not a lot about role play and character development. Regardless, she still tried to make her character interesting, but she unfortunately kept everything on her character sheet and lost it. She tried to recreate it several times, but it always got lost. Eventually the DM said that he’d write it down and keep it, but he never bothered writing some important details down, like how she multi-classed into Artificer and that’s how she had her cool blade-gun hybrid. The only things he kept were the fact that she has a dead mom and that her and Yang were teammates in a former adventuring party and considered themselves to be like sisters, but the DM tends to not lean into the latter thing as much.
He eventually realized that Ruby isn’t all that interested and has her gain some magical eye powers which only activate when the DM gives the players an impossible situation to escape out of, though he tends to make sure Ruby’s player doesn’t abuse it too much.
High Elf Sorcerer
Weiss’s player is the opposite of Ruby’s, in that she loves role playing but hates combat. She wanted her character to be deep and thought provoking, and even conspired with Blake’s player to write a story centered around racism and prejudice, but when it came time to touch on those subjects in game, the DM was kinda shocked by what he heard and quietly asked Weiss’s player to drop that part of her character. Despite protests, Weiss’s player agreed but then asked what her character should be and the DM said he’d handle it, but he fumbled it and now she has a generic evil rich dad as her foil which she hated because she wanted her relationship with her dad to be complex. However, she stuck with it because she’s really good friends with everyone at the table and doesn’t want to hurt them.
Weiss’s player does everything she can to avoid combat because it’s the one thing in the game she isn’t good at. She’s had some experience with DnD and always rolls bad rolls in combat, so she tries her best to avoid it, but the DM still put her in combat anyways. She tries to compensate for her lack of bad combat by giving Weiss good stats and really good combat spells, but it still doesn’t help and she always ends up unconscious and making death saving throws.
Blake’s player is someone who likes both role playing and combat and is pretty good at both. She made her character alongside Weiss’s player and wanted their stories to mirror each other, but while the DM told Weiss’s player to change her character, he has a soft spot for Blake’s player and told her she didn’t have to change anything, which lead to her story being incredibly confusing and weird since her side is the only one getting explored. Luckily everyone at the table said how uncomfortable the story made them feel, so the DM eventually had that dropped as well which meant that now there were some important plot threads left unresolved in the game.
However, one thing the DM is insistent upon, due to the fact that Blake’s player and Yang’s player are his favorites, is that their characters are in love with each other. He constantly comments on any and all interactions they’re involved with saying that there’s chemistry there, and while it made both players uncomfortable, eventually they both gave in mostly because Yang thought it might be interesting. This didn’t really sit well with Blake’s player though, as she wanted her and her boyfriend’s characters to end up together (more on that later), but she doesn’t want to make enemies with anyone at the table.
Yang Xiao Long
Yang’s player is someone who loves combat and isn’t really all that interested in role playing. In fact, she has so little interest in it that the DM wrote her backstory for her, which consists of her mom abandoning her as a baby and her and Ruby’s characters being almost like sisters. She isn’t really interested in developing her character though, and whenever it comes time for the story to focus on her, she goes “well I just want to get back to Ruby because the story is about her”. This makes the DM kinda upset, but he really likes the player and how well she does with combat, so he doesn’t care all that much.
The DM also insisted that her and Blake’s characters are in love, and while she wasn’t really on board with it, she eventually realized that avoiding all the DM’s attempts to develop her character was getting on his nerves, so she said okay and now her and Blake’s characters are in a relationship.
Jaune’s player is the DM’s younger brother who found out about the game they were playing and really wanted to be a part of it. The DM and the rest of the table didn’t really like him being there and didn’t want to include him at first, but the DM’s girlfriend, whom everyone at the table loves (more on her later), has a soft spot for the brother and insisted he be a part of the game. She even had her character be his in game teacher so she can teach him both in game and out of it.
Jaune’s player, being the youngest and newest player, constantly tries to make the story about him much to the dismay of everyone at the table, but the DM’s girlfriend constantly reassures him to take it easy on his brother since it’s his first game. He also either rolls nat 1’s or nat 20’s with rarely anything in between.
Pyrrah is played by the DM’s girlfriend. She’s really good friends with Weiss’s player and kinda wrote her backstory to reflect hers, but despite being his girlfriend the DM never really did anything with it, mostly because she insists on focusing on Jaune to the point where everyone else suspects that her character is in love with his. As a result, her character doesn’t get that much development. However, she does see a lot of combat, because combat is the one thing that Pyrrah’s player excels at. Eventually, she does sacrifice herself in order to make Jaune’s character more interesting in a moment that made everyone at the table cry.
Wood Elf Monk
Sun’s player is Blake’s players boyfriend. Originally he made a different character named Adam Tauros the Drow barbarian, but he really wanted to play a Monk so after his and Blake’s first session he asked the DM if he could choose a different character and said that Adam could be rewritten as an enemy NPC if the DM wanted, which he did. He made his character a foil to Blake because he wanted an “opposites attract” story with his girlfriend’s character which she was on board with, but the DM really wanted Blake and Yang to be together, so he told Sun’s player to stop. Sun protested this and still kept going with it, but the DM kept insisting that he stop, and after some heated arguing, Sun’s player decided to give up and eventually left the game, much to the dismay of his girlfriend. But she kept playing because her boyfriend told her to not let him ruin her fun.
Penny is another character made by the DM’s girlfriend. One day while on her way to a session, she realized that she forgot Pyrrah’s character sheet and rather than make a new one for her (and since the brother wasn’t there) she decided to make an entirely new character, and she ended up loving her character so much that when given the option to resurrect either Pyrrah or Penny, she chose Penny. She made her backstory all about how she was kind of ashamed of being a Changeling and was trying her best to hide in human society and learning to accept herself, but towards the end of her run the table kinda butchered it by turning her into a human via a magic item. This didn’t sit well with the DM’s girlfriend, and she requested that Penny be killed off in the next session by Jaune.
Much like Pyrrah, Penny is insanely good at combat, and does insane amounts of damage to her enemies, but she doesn’t do so well in role playing, constantly failing persuasion and deception rolls.
** That’s all for now** thanks for reading all the way through. Let me know what you guys think and if you guys want me to write more RWBY characters as DnD characters (I was originally going to include Ren and Nora here, but I felt like they should be NPC’s that tag along) or if there are certain moments in the show that you guys want me to write out as if it were a DnD thing, because that honestly sounds kinda fun to do.

2023.06.05 04:15 Cornchips1234 Skarr is the best core class I've handled so far. He's just too much fun!
2023.06.05 04:14 kicksjoysharkness Son will be an absolute monster under Ange
Son has struggled this season to find form, and while there’s been debate on why that is, there are some things that are very real about how he plays.
Facing goal, he’s deadly
Facing goal, defenders can’t handle Son. His pace, his acceleration, and his ability to cut inside is world class. Ange wants his players to be pressing constantly, overwhelming opposition with non stop attacking threat. This means that Son will be facing goal a LOT which is where he's most deadly due to his strengths.
Ange Plays his wingers wide, utilizing inverted fullbacks to allow it
Son has played this season as a sort of wingenumber 10 hybrid. Naturally this puts him a bit deeper and central, in a playmakers position. We know that Son drives on the wing. His pace makes him hellish for fullbacks, and his ability to cut inside in the blink of eye and cut out the fullback makes him a constant threat in, or outside the box in front of goal.
Ange loves fair players and eye watering goals
While Pep embodies “pass it into the back of the net” Ange definitely has a soft spot for flair players, in line with his passion for football being entertaining. He will be drooling over a player like Son, who is arguably the best out there for consistency in front of goal, both inside and outside the box. If son is facing goal, he can score from anywhere. Under Ange Son will almost certainly score a lot of screamers (and be encouraged to do so)
So between a play style that will have Son playing to all his strengths (facing goal, playing wide and cutting inside; shooting from range), and a manager that will embrace Sons brilliance as much as the fans, I think we’re going to see a different beast of Son unleashed next season.
This is just an opinion, I'm not claiming to be a tactician. Just a run of the eye test from watching both player and manager a lot of late.

2023.06.05 04:12 Sensitive-Jaguar8215 AITA: For getting my daughter’s mother kicked out of her graduation ceremony?
I have been a single dad to my daughter Olivia (fake name) since she was 3 months old and her mother Erin (fake name) decided she didn’t want to be a parent anymore and bailed. Until Olivia was almost 8 years old, Erin had virtually no contact with her. And when Erin, with her husband John (fake name), did try to get back into Olivia’s life, the results were about the same as pouring gasoline on a lit firework. For reasons that would get me banned for telling, John is not allowed to be near Olivia.
Olivia just graduated (with Honors) from High School on Friday. She has worked really hard to get to that night as not only did she, like every other kid, have to deal with Covid lockdowns and virtual classes, but she had to do so while battling ADD, and the teacher’s voice droning on through a laptop isn’t the best learning environment for a ND kid.
In the weeks leading up to Olivia’s graduation, I had asked her if she wanted Erin there. Olivia was kind of dismissive of the notion; stating that she had emailed Erin the time of the ceremony, but she wasn’t holding her breath for Erin to show up. Sadly, Olivia never expects much from Erin; and rightfully so. But Olivia did make it clear that she didn’t want John within 100 yards of her (There was a no contact order for years to ensure this).
On Friday, Olivia left for the ceremony early to be in place for the lineup. I arrived moderately early to get a good seat and meet up with the extended family who was joining the cheering section. The gymnasium was filling up and one of my relatives spotted Erin and John coming into the gym. They took seats that guaranteed that Olivia would see them when she was getting her diploma.
Knowing that John’s presence would upset Olivia, I excused myself and found the SRO who was there as security. I’ve known him for years as we live in a small community, and I know he is aware of the situation with the NC order. He tells me that he will take care of it, so I go back to my seat. When I did, I could see the SRO approach Erin and John. While I can’t hear the conversation (yet), I can tell that Erin is not happy. Finally, Erin and John leave the gym after only a minor scene; and the ceremony happens without incident.
When I check my phone and email later, I have several messages from Erin basically ripping into me, saying that I had no right to have her removed from “her daughter’s” graduation. When I told Olivia what happened, she reacted with her usual indifference towards Erin’s actions.
Right now I’m questioning my action and wonder if it was really the right thing to do?

2023.06.05 04:10 SaltedCaffeine Targeted Redaction (taken Void HC) is great on Strand
Put Well Rounded on it and your melee grapple triggers "Well Rounded 2x" on hit. Combined with Thread of Ascent, you can get some crazy stats on the hand cannon for 14-15 secs like this
But wait there's more! On the off chance that you can't trigger grapple, use your melee and class ability so the origin trait Unsated Hunger kicks in (it gives bonus to stability, handling, and reload speed).
As you can probably imagine, this works best on Hunter since they get 2x grapple charges with Widow's Silk. The bonuses are practically always on as long as you remember to refresh grapple melee (just grapple also works fine).

2023.06.05 04:03 HercHuntsdirty Should I Text Her After Breakup (6 Years Together) To Show How Much I Value Fixing What We Had?
TL;DR AT BOTTOM
Never thought I’d be bringing this to Reddit, but here I am!
I (26M) was recently broken up with by my (24F) girlfriend of 6 years right after opening up to her about how I had been struggling a lot mentally recently. That's not necessarily the cause, but it happens to be a terrible coincidence.
About 10 weeks ago I had a very long night out and woke up extremely hungover. My brother met up with me that night in our parents car and ended up staying with us for a few drinks, so evidently he left the car.
Of course, I woke up and had a boatload of caffeine so I was already on edge a little bit. My brother was still asleep, so my mom asked me if I could quickly drive my dad to the car so he could take it home. No problem, I hopped in my car and drove there with my dad.
On the way home, completely unprovoked and no anxiety prior, I had an insane panic attack. I’ve never experienced anything like it before. I think I’ve only had one panic attack in my life, and for some reason it left me with a very small amount of social anxiety. During this attack, my hands and feet were completely numb and sweating. At first, I had literally no idea what was going on - I thought it was a legitimate health issue. I ended up taking a bit to drive home, but I made it.
Since then, I've just had heightened anxiety. I've had one other panic attack in the past and I eventually got over the lingering anxiety, so I knew it wasn't permanent.
Mental Health Backstory on her end:
To preface this, we both have anxiety/depression in our genetics unfortunately. In fact, her mom spent some time in the hospital when they were young because of how bad it got.
She also apparently had a ton of anxiety from work recently (she's a nurse, I'm in tech).
On my mothers side of the family, my mom, grandma and great grandma have struggled with anxiety their entire lives, some of them taking antidepressants.
Not fun genes for either of us to have, but we persevered!
This is what has been getting to me, our relationship was very healthy. We argued probably 2-3 times per year, we spent the majority of days together - as we lived only a 5 minute drive apart. We were both fully a part of each other's families. All of the normal relationship stuff, we were completely engulfed in it. We had also been looking at engagement rings for a bit and ALWAYS talked about our life together.
When I was about 19 before we were together, I used to drunkenly talk about her all of the time to my friends saying "if she ever gets out of the relationship with her boyfriend (at that time) she's the one I'm going for". When I was graduating high school, I went into her class on yearbook day, grabbed her yearbook and wrote my number in it. Long story short, she ended up single and within a month of that happening, we were together.
The "problems" we had over the years that were semi-recurring:
I didn't suggest enough of our plans. I explained to her a number of times that I'd happily go anywhere, I just don't tend to suggest ideas because sometimes she wanted to, other times she didn't. I've lived by the motto "happy wife, happy life" in that relationship, so I tended to go along with whatever she suggested.
We didn't take enough pictures together. I don't really like being in too many pictures and that bothered her.
We didn't travel together enough. This goes back to the anxiety, I hate flying and haven't done it in almost a decade. However, I have an appointment with my doctor in early July where I'm requesting some "emergencies only" anxiety medication to use for that exact scenario. Note - she went on a number of trips over the years with her closest friends. Furthermore, we had done weekend getaways via car together but those apparently don't count. To add, her friends are hopping on planes at least once per month to go somewhere, I think comparison became the thief of joy here.
I didn't tell her I loved her enough or hug her enough. This one is hard for me because I felt like I definitely told her I loved her a lot. She used to occasionally say "do you even love me", semi-joking but also serious, and I always told her of course I did and even though I may not say it a number of times a day, of course I do. I also did a TON of things for her to show how much I cared (ie. she very rarely had to make a lunch for work, I cooked for her almost every day and we don't even live together) The hugging thing is a bit different, as she's always been extremely affectionate and I never really have been. I truly think it comes down to how I was raised, affection just wasn't a huge part of my childhood. (note, that's not a problem for me or anything, I had incredible family/parents, it just wasn't as prominent as it was in her childhood)
I cared a lot about money and how we could set ourselves up to move out. She had taken 5 trips (two of them by train, three by plane) with her friends in the past year and after the 5th one I asked if she planned on slowing down so she could focus on tackling her student debt and so we could start saving to move out, have a wedding etc. Specifically, I wanted us to be in the position where we weren't renting a home, ESPECIALLY given how much money we were making combined. This part kind of confused me because she was the first one to suggest moving out, but when it came time to adjusting the lifestyle to prepare for it, she didn't like the idea. But, I did use it as a crutch for my anxiety to get out of things sometimes and I did open up to her about that. As an example though, I still went with her to the Gucci store and helped her pick out a very expensive purse to celebrate getting her first real nursing job after graduating. I don't feel that I cared about money (especially given the stage we were in in our lives) more than any of my buddies with girlfriends. I wanted us to be set up well for the coming stages of our lives; they were fast approaching. Furthermore, her friends are catching a plane every weekend and are living with their parents but pay cheque to pay cheque with no prospects of ever leaving unless it's renting
About 7-ish weeks ago, a few weeks after my panic attack, my girlfriend was very adamant that we needed to book a trip together. She said we hadn't been on a "real" trip during our relationship (by real, she means getting on a plane). We were sitting down in her bed on my laptop looking at destinations and flights, but I was incredibly anxious about the whole thing. As we were about to book, I broke down and was fully vulnerable to her for one of the first times in the 6 year relationship. I said that I just don't see myself getting onto a plane right now without some kind of medication to calm me down. On top of that, it would stress me out financially a bit, as I'm a full-time masters student and working full time. Plus, it was during my one-week semester break, so I honestly just wanted to relax.
From that day on, our relationship started going downhill. She said she felt extremely disappointed by the whole situation and she couldn't shake the feeling. We then started only hanging out maybe once per week and it was very bland when we did. A couple weeks after that incident, I slept over at her house and I could tell she was genuinely just not happy at that time.
Brief backstory - despite being 26, my mom still gives me a ton of flack if I sleep at her house. It was rare that I got away with it. But, I did it that night anyway because she always asked me to sleep over but I rarely wanted to have to deal with my mom. I thought it would help show her I'm really trying to get better. She also invited me over the following evening and I obviously went.
After that day, I don't think we saw each other for about 2 weeks. I texted her on a Friday evening and said I just don't feel like she wants to be with me anymore. She picked me up so we could talk, and explained that she felt very disappointed about how we were so close to booking the trip and ended up not doing it. She said she needed a break and I was fine with it, I understood where she was coming from.
During this time, I started seeing a therapist. I found one online who was one of the highest rated in my province and was also extremely experienced in marital/pre-marital counselling so I could tell her about the relationship issues I was having along with my anxiety.
Fast forward about 2 more weeks (last weekend) she texted me saying she was ready to talk and picked me up. She said it's probably best if we just end the relationship for the time being. She explained that she felt she had been disappointed a few times over the years and was bottling a lot of things up. She said she needed time to "find herself again" and didn't know if we would get back together at all in the future or not. Then, we sat there talking in her car for another 30 minutes like things were normal so it really threw me off.
I ended up texting her the next day and asked if I could pick her up because I was confused from the night prior since we talked so normally after the breakup conversation. We ended up talking again, sharing some tears and what not, but I kind of understood why she felt she needed to be alone for a bit, even though she didn't know if we would get back together or not. She said that people do this all of the time and sometimes they come back stronger, but if it was meant to be then we'll get back together. I also told her about how much help I'm getting and how I'm setting a goal to take a vacation when I finish my masters in November. She was noticeably happy and asked a lot about how I was talking to my therapist about improving as a person and a (what I thought was soon to be) fiancé. She asked for all of the details about what we talked about in regards to our relationship and was very happy that I was putting that much effort in.
A couple days ago is when she deleted are photos together, but it came right after she posted an Instagram story while out with a friend who has no stability whatsoever. This friend has been on and off with the same guy (who treats her terribly) for as long as we were together. Not to mention, she sleeps around a ton. I can't help but feel like some of this breakup is being influenced by her friends (specifically this one) wanting her to be single like they are out of jealousy or something. Or, they want her to be flying somewhere once a month with them with no plans for the future. My girlfriend has cried to me in the past because she had been brought to places she didn't want to be because her friend wanted to go for a guy. That friend has also been binge drinking several times weekly for years. The following night, her two friends posted a story of her incredibly drunk in the back of a car with her feet out of the window I'm sure in hopes that I would see it. We're grown ass adults, I can't help but feel like that's just not a cool thing to do to your friend in general? I don't care how drunk you are, in fact I expected her to have a night out with her friends and let loose but posting someone else like that is just insanely stupid to me! To put the icing on the cake, one of my long time buddies from high school decided to go for one of her friends and I gave him substantial warnings about her. Within a year, that relationship was completely over with and she was on to the next.
Neither of us were ever the type one to have one-night stands or get around, so I'm not concerned about anything like that during the breakup. If it happens it happens, but I won't be sleeping with anyone until I've put in all of my effort to saving everything we've built. She's only ever been with me and her ex, while I've had a handful more partners before her - but I've experienced enough in my 26 years to know that there was is only one woman for me.
After all of this, I still couldn't shake the feeling that I felt I was being abandoned during the one time in my entire life I've opened up to anyone and really wanted some support. I'm also just having a hard time processing why it happened and how I can salvage it.
I've texted her once per week since the breaks & breakup happened just telling her that I loved her and wished we were going to XYZ events coming up. I also always say in the message that "You don't have to respond or even read it, I just want you to know". I'm having a hard time deciding if I should continue giving her that weekly text or not, but I really do want her to know how much I care and thought we were a dream team.
I just can't help but feel like we had "problems" that were very fixable and were very minor compared to 99% of couples. Her two best friends have had 5+ boyfriends each in the time that we were together and countless one-night stands. Every time they would break up, I'd hear a story from my girlfriend about how terribly they were treated by these guys and we talked about how lucky we are to have each other. There was no forms of jealousy or self-consciousness between us either, neither of us were bothered when we went out alone with our respective friend groups. I also never for a second worried when she travelled with her friends that she'd cheat or something.
This wraps in with why I can't process the breakup. Aside from the few things we argued about here and there (few times a year) it was an incredibly healthy relationship. I had a great relationship with her friends (despite some of the things I've said about them above) and would often times opt to go out drinking with her group over my group of buddies. I acknowledged my shortcomings as a boyfriend (ie. the affection) with my therapist and she's giving me some help with it. Am I crazy for thinking that we can easily salvage everything we’ve built over 6 years?
TL;DR - We had a very healthy relationship, never argued, no cheating, but she said I didn’t tell her I loved her enough or wasn’t affectionate enough. Said she doesn’t know if we’ll get back together or not. I’ve been texting her once a week just to say I hope she had a good weekend, to let me know if she wants to talk and that I love her. Should I continue it?

2023.06.05 04:02 IWannaREEEEEEEEEEEEE The Brave Students of Tiananmen Square: A Story of Bravery and Resistance in the Face of Authoritarian Oppression 34 years ago.
The students who protested at Tianmnen Square were brave. They fought for their rights despite knowing that the Chinese government could be ruthless in dealing with their dissent. Their act of bravery has inspired future generations of Chinese people to stand up for their own rights and against injustice.
I am in awe of the courage and fortitude shown by the students who peacefully protested during the Tiananmen Square massacre. Their bravery in the face of brutal persecution is truly inspiring and reminds us all of the importance of defending freedom and human rights. The students who stood up to the Chinese government during the Tiananmen Square massacre are true heroes and are an example for all of us to live up to.
Communism is a failed ideology that has led to mass suffering and poverty. The Chinese Communist Party is a totalitarian regime that suppresses freedom of expression, deprives people of their basic rights, and has committed numerous human rights abuses. The CCP is a threat to freedom and democracy and should be opposed at every opportunity.
Communism is an inherently unworkable and destructive ideology that inevitably leads to the erosion of individual rights, the subjugation of the people by a ruling class, and the destruction of economic freedom. The Chinese Communist Party is an authoritarian regime that has repeatedly demonstrated its willingness and ability to commit human rights abuses and violations of sovereignty to further its own power and interests.
We can honor the fallen students by remembering their bravery and steadfast commitment to democracy and freedom. Additionally, we can protest against the communist regime by spreading awareness of its human rights abuses and authoritarian tendency, and by calling for a more democratic and open Chinese nation. We can also support the brave Chinese people who are currently fighting for their rights and freedoms despite the odds being stacked against them.
The best alternative to communism is a democratic, free market society with Christian Judeo principles. A successful and free China would have the ability to harness the full potential of its people, allowing them to work and live in prosperity and without fear of retribution.
The Chinese Communist Party is a threat to peace, prosperity, and freedom in China and around the world. Their authoritarian and oppressive actions must be condemned and the free world must stand up to this threat to ensure that the Chinese people are able to live in peace and be protected from abuse and exploitation.

2023.06.05 04:02 thr0waway32183329 I think my pedophilic ex-coworker has the potential to be a serial killer...
Throwaway for OBVIOUS reasons. This is a long, kind of crazy story that has a lot to do with intuition and straight up Facebook stalking lol not the most serious detective work, but it ties together. Please bare with me, as I'm going to do my best to get it all out in a way that makes sense.
I'm a healthcare worker. When I was in my early 20s, I had a coworker, lets call him "Ross," who rubbed me the wrong way within the first few weeks of knowing him. He was a seemingly charming, outgoing ~40 y/o who infiltrated into and got along well with my work friend group. He started to rub me the wrong way when he would try to "innocently" make physical contact with me during visits with our patients (making a point to put his hand over top of mine when doing a Hoyer transfer, asking for hugs, putting his hand on my back or shoulder, etc.). This escalated to him telling me on a regular basis how beautiful he thought I was and how "in shape" I was, telling me that I could be a supermodel... he continued to do this refer to me as "supermodel" at our group outings, in front of my boyfriend and his fiancé, "Rachel." She was less than thrilled and safe to say she didn't like me from the get-go. (Side note: when he started working with us he had told us about his girlfriend, it wasn't until we met her that she told us that they had been engaged for over a year.) To tell you a little about Rachel, she too was in her early 20s and a beautiful, sweet, reserved, dark-blonde girl. Hair color ties into this. They lived together with his "only" teenage daughter.
After about two months of working with this guy I could not shake the weird vibes he gave me. I told a friend that I worked with about it and she expressed that she had noticed how Ross was strangely infatuated with me and another girl that we worked with (also early 20s). She told me how she had felt like he was appropriate towards her, but pointed out that she has blonde hair and that me and the other coworker both had dark brown hair--suggesting that perhaps he had more of a type.
Decided to google Ross, as he has a rather unique last name. I figured that I would probably find nothing and could put my mind to rest about the weird feeling in my gut once I did... but I didn't. Instead, I found an obituary for a close relative of his that had his name listed as well as what I assumed were the names of his ex wife and three daughters. This peaked my interest because he had told us at length about one daughter, but only one, and that one's name was on the list.
I searched the name of his ex wife on Facebook and to my delight it seemed that most of, if not all of her posts were public. Under the influence of a strong edible, I spent more time than I'd like to admit just mindlessly scrolling through her posts. Not reading every one, but just scanning to see if there was anything that stood out. She was a pretty, older, dark-haired woman who shared a lot of After scrolling through a few months worth of posts, I came across a screenshot of a Pinterest-like image of a living room with two canvases that spelled out "STOCKHOLM" on them, or something to the effect... and her caption on it was "I found the perfect housewarming gift for my sister, Rachel," and in that moment my heart sunk to my stomach... because I KNEW.
I kept scrolling and found another post that was sharing a link to an article entitled "A Different Kind of Heart Attack: New Research Finds A Broken Heart Permanently Weakens The..." (I'm referring to a screenshot, so that's all I've got.) Her caption on the post solidified the feeling in my gut. She wrote in her caption, "This literally happened to me a few years ago... My BP was regularly low and I had fainting spells due to my heart not pumping enough blood to my brain... this was after discovering that my now ex husband was sleeping with my 15 year old sister. I later learned that he was also abusing our children." I could have barfed. Putting those pieces together told me that Rachel had been groomed into being this gross man's fiancé. From her comments it sounded like for whatever reason, the court system failed them and he had gotten out with no charges or anything.
I immediately told my friend and from that point on only interacted with Ross in a work setting. If he went out with our work friend group then I didn't talk to him, I brought my boyfriend to ensure I wasn't alone, and I avoided him at all costs. At work he still was overly friendly/touchy towards me for months until finally like a year later he finally seemed to get the hint that I wanted absolutely nothing to do with him. He stayed infatuated with my other dark-haired coworker.
I can't pinpoint when I finally noticed the mask drop from him, but I definitely can tell you that once it dropped I could see him for all that I had learned that he was... cold, dark, and unfriendly. Once he noticed that I would not play into his games, he turned off the charm on me and would get mad at me for miniscule things at work. I'm good at what I do, but this guy would try to belittle me in front of other coworkers and make it seem like I didn't know what I was doing when I would fill in for others and that my other coworker (that he loved) was the best at what we do and that I should lead by her example. I sucked it up and didn't take it personally, because I knew it wasn't... He would talk down to me and scold me for weird things and try to mansplain everything.
We had one interaction that I will never forget, outside of our clinical office. He had gone out to leave for a visit where he was training someone (still on the clock, in-home care setting) but had forgotten something in the office. I ran down to see if he had left yet to give it to him to take, as the patient needed it, and his car was still in the parking lot. I ran up and tapped on the window and this man turned his head back in disgust and his blue eyes went pitch black. It was a very short moment, but it was a switch I definitely noticed. He did the annoyed "one minute" gesture, as he had gotten on a phone call, so I waited then gave him the patient's item and quickly went back upstairs.
Not too long after that I ended up finding another job and I stopped hanging out with that work friend group because I decided that it was just giving me too much anxiety to be around this weirdo, and I didn't have to subject myself to that.
After changing jobs, he sent me an "apology" text for being rude to me and that he hoped we could still be friends. I didn't respond, but rather blocked him on everything to get my point across.
I did, however, keep Rachel, who at this point had started school for a specialty medical program. I told my close friend who knew the whole situation that I was holding out hope that Rachel was just using Ross to pay her way through school and that she would leave him once she got her degree. I never had a problem with Rachel, we just got off to a weird start and I didn't like her dude so I was not going out of my way to be her friend.. lol. So we have stayed social media friends the whole time.
Anyhow, fast forward to this last summer, Rachel graduates with her degree. I say again to my friend how much I hope she was just going to get a good job and leave him after a few good paychecks.. (I don't wish that upon most people, and definitely acknowledge that in most situations that would be awful lol my moral compass is there, I swear, but like COME ON!!! How full circle karma would that be?)
Well, they seem to stay together for a while after that until all of a sudden I noticed that she was posting in a seemingly single way... iykyk. I looked at her Instagram and noticed that she had deleted all of their photos together. After responding to a story post, I decided to ask her and she confirmed that they had in fact broken up. I told her congratulations and suggested we get a drink. This was in December.
At the beginning of spring term in my psychology class we had been discussing personality disorders and I asked my teacher some questions keeping the weird interactions I had with Ross in mind, as it is still to this day one of the craziest intuition stories I have. So I ask my teacher about the ability to infiltrate into groups with charisma but then switch to being cold, having the eyes turn black, etc.. My professor told me that the "switching" is literally that, it is the person's personality switching.. and in that moment you see the real them and it's when the "mask slips." He said it is a very common trait amongst serial killers and advised me to stay cautious and safe.
This is where I feel like my story definitely becomes more of a reach (maybe I'm just feeling insecurely crazy), but if you've stayed with me this long, maybe you'll see the dots I'm connecting. I'm a big true crime fan so there's some crime junkie theorizing here.
So, there have been a bunch of bodies that have turned up in the last four months in rural areas of surrounding counties where I live. One of the counties that the bodies were dropped is one that this guy lives in.
The first girl that they found went missing in December. She eerily resembles Ross' daughter that I saw on his ex-wife's FB page (not the one he continued to raise).
Ross and Rachel broke up around that time. Could be a trigger.
The next five bodies were found in rural areas and the commonality amongst the women is that they had dark hair and dark eyebrows, and were in their mid 20s.
That's clearly not enough to accuse someone of something as serious as murder, but it's surely enough to give me the suspicion that if the murders are connected and it's a serial killer that it could be him.
I decided to look at his FB page from an account that can't be traced back to me and over the last few months he's shared a lot of posts about mushroom hunting. You know where people go to hunt mushrooms?? RURAL. AREAS.
I feel so freaking crazy but I CANNOT shake this feeling in my gut that something is up.
Ted Bundy was the same way, a freaking charismatic guy that got caught because someone (his wife) had a weird feeling in her gut!!!
I can't really do anything though but vent to reddit, because I just can't imagine that anyone else would listen to this story and take it seriously.
Also, on the off chance that this guy's on reddit he's definitely going to know who I am. I'll be sure to tell my fiancé about this post and add it to my "if I go missing" file.

Crazy thing but I have never played Diablo before but have always wanted to get into it. Looking at all the positive reviews, and I have some friends who have preordered, I am planning to probably buy on launch. However, with no experience in Diablo, what are some essential tips? Like should I sell all gear I'm not using or when should I salvage? What class is most fun/best? Should I start and stay on World Tier 1 or 2? etc. Thank you!

2023.06.05 03:57 MaleficentBuilding91 How did Calgary get voted best quality of life?
My family and I just moved to Calgary a few months ago. One of the reasons we moved was because Calgary consistently gets voted as one of the best cities in the world for quality of life. I’m trying to figure out how.
The healthcare system is bad. Wait times are ridiculous and the doctors only have 15 minutes to see you.
The public school system is bad. Ridiculous class sizes and a horrid curriculum. It used to be ranked as one of the best public school systems in the word. What happened?
Public transportation is a joke.
The housing market is quite expensive and it’s almost impossible to find a rental.
The nightlife is boring, museums/cultural events are sparse, and the food is bland and tasteless.
Everyone always talks about how everyone is moving here because it’s so great. I don’t see it. It’s cheaper than Vancouver and Toronto and has natural beauty. Those are the only reasons I see why people would move here from those cities.

2023.06.05 03:52 KapyBaara Just sharing some memories
Hey. One of my best friends killed himself on March 29. He was only 28. It's strange because the last thing I sent to him was actually the Nobody video that was released more or less 2 weeks earlier. I think he didn't watch it because he completely isolated himself that day. But yeah... He was gone a few hours after I shared the song. I thought he would have loved it because I have good memories of us listening to The Stage a lot when it came out in 2016. I remember when we were watching The Stage video at college instead of paying attention in class. And it's just one among many others. He just loved the band. I've been listening to LIBAD for a few days now and it just fascinates me how things just come at the right time, how everything is so logical and seems to match naturally sometimes. I was not expecting the suicide theme to have so much presence in this album. I don't have the right words to explain my feelings but I know that I will associate LIBAD with my friend for the rest of my days. I'm glad the album turned out to be so good. I'm blown away by the music, the lyrics and how they resonate with me, the details,... Everything. I'm sorry if my post is awkward or even cringe. I don't have many opportunities to talk/write about my friend and the memories I have with him and the band.

2023.06.05 03:51 Gourgeistguy How do you play with an adventuring party in Solo 5e without making things too complicated?
One of the reasons I'm adamant to advance my 5e game is that playing a duo means I'll get to face less exciting foes at higher levels: even at Level 15, a CR 10 Monster can be outright lethal for a duo, meaning I'll be limited to at most CR 5-8 at that level. That also means I don't get to use the stacks of 5e bestiaries I have but otherwise will never get to play.
Any ideas on how to balance this out without having to homebrew too much? I'm not a fan of conceptc like gestalt classes and the like.

If you wish to modify the game, I'm going to hope that you'd be willing to read a longer post as well, as such for the sake of keeping everything as detailed as needed, there will be no TL;DR
for good reason, generally speaking when one asks how to edit sprites for the hd remasters, they are redirected to the etrian odyssey discord server where you can find the tutorials currently out, and ask for help if needed (of which even i would recommend, if you do indeed have discord). however, not everyone may have discord, and i have yet to see the tutorials currently out be posted on the reddit server. But first, since I was not the one that uncovered any of this, I feel it appropriate to give credit where credit is due.
first, obviously a general shutout to those within the discord working on finding all of this information, but also a special shutout to the tutorial authors to of which you can find by following the links below.
Before we begin, i will be going over all of the quirks that i know of when modifying sprites within etrian odyssey. if you want to get right into modding, simply reading the two links i provide are good enough to serve as a starting point. but first the links. https://gamebanana.com/tuts/16140
before reading any further you'll want to follow this tutorial first, this process is the same for all three games, so i won't be covering any of this information. https://gamebanana.com/tuts/16144
once you've done that, if you simply wish to modify 1 and 2, this tutorial should be more than enough, however, besides the information linked here one thing that should be noted. when modifying the files, you'll not want to make the new sprites any larger or wider then the sprites you are modifying. (keep in mind that not every sprite is the same height and width, so if one sprite doesn't fit, simply try another one)
3 however, is a bit different. in specific you'll notice that the files needed to modify are located in different locations. as to where each file is, you can find them in the following areas:
From "EO3HD\Etrian Odyssey 3_Data" load resources.assets and modify:
From "EO3HD\Etrian Odyssey 3_Data\StreamingAssets\aa\StandaloneWindows64" load townprefab_assets_all.bundle and modify:
Besides that however, in 3 in particular, you need to add a gradient to the background (any should work, but if they don't i will be putting the original gradient, which again was taken from the discord at the bottom of this post). and once again, make sure to keep the new sprites within the limits of the old sprites. in the other 2, you'd simply lose some of the image if you didn't, but in the case of 3, you end up getting a corrupted texture that looks like a white box, so you need to be especially careful to make sure the final sprite is not outside of the boundaries of the original sprite.
In the case of sprite editing everything else not listed here (as far as i am aware) is no different from one game to the other, besides in the case of 2 having slightly different locations from 1, for where to find some of the sprites.
Keep in mind that this post only covers sprite editing, if you wish to edit other sections of the game, such as music, text, etc... the best place to go for all of that information would without question be the discord. and honestly, even if you wish to only edit sprites, I'd still recommend the discord as well, as not only do they have all this information and more, but they can also offer you help if you are unsure of something. https://preview.redd.it/uo5cm3jcu34b1.png?width=200&format=png&auto=webp&s=209258f9526ee671803b6964c2d412a0b3fd7b97
