An A-Z of incredible uses for everyday things

2023.06.10 23:23 LIS1050010 An A-Z of incredible uses for everyday things

Did you know you can kill weeds with vodka? Remove stains on clothes with aspirin? Make jewellery gleam with tomato ketchup? Here are 40 surprising tips to save you time and money

and for ... aluminium cans
To create a simple Chinese lantern, mark two lines around a clean empty can, about 2.5cm from the top and bottom. With a sharp craft knife, make vertical cuts about 1.5cm apart between the lines. Make a cut across the bottom of two adjacent strips to make an opening for a candle. Gently press down on the can to make the strips bend in the middle. Insert a tea-light through the opening, then tuck the cut ends of the opening strips inside the can. Finally attach a hanging loop. You can spray-paint the can before cutting it if you like.

and for ... apples
If you've been heavy-handed with the salt shaker when cooking a soup or stew, simply drop a few apple (or potato) wedges into the pan. After cooking for another 10 minutes or so, remove the wedges, which will have absorbed the excess salt.

and for ... aspirin
Before giving up hope of removing a stubborn perspiration stain from a shirt, try this. Crush two aspirins and mix the powder in 100ml warm water. Soak the stained part of the garment in the solution for two to three hours.

B is for ... bread
You can remove most dirty or greasy fingerprints from painted walls by rubbing the area with a slice of white bread. Bread does a good job of cleaning nonwashable wallpaper as well. First cut off the crusts to minimise the chance of scratching the paper.

and for ... baby oil
Buff up a dull-looking stainless steel sink by rubbing it down with a few drops of baby oil on a soft clean cloth. Rub dry with a towel and repeat if necessary. This is also a terrific way to remove stains on the chrome trim of kitchen appliances and bathroom fixtures.

and for ... bicarbonate of soda
Even the smelliest shoe or trainer is no match for the power of bicarbonate of soda. Liberally sprinkle powder in the offending loafer or laceup and let it sit overnight. Discard the powder in the morning. (Be careful with leather shoes as repeated applications can dry them out.)

C is for ... crayons
Crayons make an excellent filler for small gouges or holes in resilient flooring. Select a colour that closely matches the floor. Melt the crayon in the microwave on medium power over a piece of greaseproof paper, until you have a pliant glob of colour. With a plastic or putty knife, fill the hole. You can use a softened crayon to cover even quite deep scratches on wooden furniture.

and for ... carpet remnants
Place a series of carpet offcuts upside down and cover them with bark mulch or straw for a weed-free garden path. Use smaller scraps as mulch around your vegetable garden.

and for ... coffee grounds
They're full of nutrients that acid-loving plants crave. Save them to fertilise rose bushes, azaleas, rhododendrons, evergreens and camellias. It's better to use grounds from a drip coffeemaker than the boiled grounds from a percolator as the drip grounds are richer in nitrogen.

and for ... compact discs
Use them as garden/driveway reflectors. Drill small holes into a CD and screw it ito a gatepost or stake. Install several of them to mark out a night-time path to your front door.

and for ... correction fluid
Dab small nicks on household appliances with correction fluid. Once it dries, cover your repair with clear nail polish for protection.

D is for ... dental floss
Secure a button permanently with dental floss - it's much stronger than thread. Make hardwearing repairs to outdoor items. Because dental floss is resilient but fine, it is an ideal replacement for thread when you are repairing an umbrella, tent or rucksack.

E is for ... emery board
If a favourite pair of suede shoes have become stained and tired, an emery board can revive them. Rub the stain lightly with the emery board, and then hold the shoe over the steam from a kettle to remove the stain. This technique will work for suede clothing too.

F is for ... fabric softener
End clinging dust on the TV. To eliminate the static that attracts dust, dampen a duster with a little fabric softener straight from the bottle.

and for ... freezers
Place candles in the freezer for at least two hours before burning. They will last longer.

G is for ... golfing equipment
If a screw won't grip because its hole has become too large, dip the tip of a golf tee in wood glue and tap the tee into the hole. Cut the tee flush with a craft knife. When the glue dries, you can drill a new pilot hole in the same spot.

H is for ... hairspray
To keep a child's priceless work of art at its very best before you put it on the pinboard or fridge door, preserve it with hairspray to help it last longer. This works especially well on unstable chalk or pastel pictures as it stops them from getting smudged so easily.

I is for ... ice cube trays
Here's what to do with a half-drunk bottle of red or white wine. Freeze the wine into cubes that can be used later in pasta sauces, casseroles or stews.

and for ... ice cubes
If you're putting sealant around the bath, run an ice cube over it to get a nice even bead - it will never stick.

J is for ... jars
If you've taken a break from gardening, help your gloves dry out by pulling each one over the bottom of an empty jar. Stand the jar upside down on a radiator or hot-air vent. Warm air will fill the jar and dry damp clothing in an instant.

K is for ... ketchup
Keeps silver jewellery sparkling. Soak it in a small bowl of ketchup for a few minutes. If it has a tooled or detailed surface, use an old toothbrush to work ketchup into the crevices. To avoid damaging the silver, don't leave the ketchup on longer than necessary. Rinse and dry.

L is for ... lemons
Get rid of tough stains on marble. Cut a lemon in half, dip the exposed flesh in some table salt and rub it vigorously on the stain. You will be amazed how well it works.

and for ... ladders
A straight ladder or front part of a stepladder makes a shallow planter with ready-made sections that look appealing filled with annuals, herbs or salad greens. After a couple of years of contact with soil, a wooden ladder will decompose.

M is for ... milk cartons
Keep drinks cold at a barbecue or party with ice blocks made from empty milk cartons. Rinse them, fill them with water and put them in the freezer. Peel away the container when you're ready to put them in the punch bowl. If you intend to use them as cooler blocks, leave the container in place.

N is for ... nail varnish
Preserve the important information on labels with a coat of clear varnish. Keep a shirt in good shape by putting a drop of clear varnish on the thread in the buttons. It prevents fraying and loss of buttons.

and for ... newspaper
Slow-ripen tomatoes that are still on the vine in autumn. Wrap each one in a couple of sheets of newspaper and then store them in airtight containers inside a dark cabinet or cupboard at room temperature. Check each one every three or four days; they will eventually ripen to perfection.

O is for ... olive oil
Make your own furniture polish. Combine two parts olive oil with one part lemon juice or white vinegar in a clean recycled spray bottle, shake it up and squirt it on. Leave the mixture on for a minute or two, then wipe off with a clean cloth or paper towel. If you're in a hurry, apply olive oil straight from the bottle on to a paper towel. Wipe off any oil that remains with another towel.

and for ... oatmeal
Add luxury to a regular bath. All you need is 200g oatmeal and your favourite scented oil. Grind the oatmeal in a blender, put it in a cheesecloth bag, add a few drops of scent and suspend the bag under the running water as you fill your bathtub.

and for ... oven cleaner
To remove paint or varnish from wooden or metal furniture, try oven cleaner. It costs less than commercial strippers and is easier to apply (if you spray it). After applying, scrub off the old paint with a wire brush. Neutralise the stripped surface with vinegar, then wash it off with water. Allow to dry. Warning: never use oven cleaner on antique or expensive furnishings - it may darken wood or discolour metal.

P is for ... plastic bottles
Create a drip irrigator for plants. Cut a large hole in the bottom of a bottle, then drill two to five tiny (1.5mm) holes in or around the cap. Bury the closed bottles upside down about three-quarters submerged beneath the soil near the plants you need to water, and fill with water through the hole on top. Refill as needed.

R is for ... rubber flip-flops
Slip a rubber flip-flop on to your hand and rub carpets and rugs in the direction of the pile. Any pet hair will form into balls that can then be vacuumed up. This works well on upholstery, too, including car seats.

S is for ... sand
Fill a large bucket with builder's sand and pour in about a litre of clean motor oil. Plunge spades, hoes, rakes and other tools into the sand a few times to clean and lubricate them. To prevent rust, you can leave the tool blades in the sand for storage.

and for ... salt
Watermarks from damp glasses or bottles left on a wooden surface are unattractive. Make them disappear by mixing one teaspoon of salt with a few drops of water to form a paste. Gently rub the paste on to the ring with a soft cloth or sponge until the spot is gone. Restore the lustre with furniture polish.

T is for ... tennis balls
Give yourself a relaxing and therapeutic back massage: fill a long tube-shaped sock with a few tennis balls, tie the end and stretch the massager around your back as you would a towel after a shower.

and for ... tights
To find lost small objects, cut the leg off an old pair of tights, making sure the toe is intact and pull it over the nozzle of the vacuum cleaner hose. Secure with a rubber band. Turn on the vacuum and you will soon find your valuable attached to your homemade filter.

U is for ... umbrellas
Make an instant trellis. Remove the fabric from an old umbrella and insert the handle into the ground to support climbing vines such as clematis. The umbrella's shape, covered with flowers, will look terrific in the garden.

V is for ... vodka
For a quick and easy weedkiller, mix 30ml vodka, a few drops of washing-up liquid and 400ml water in a spray bottle. Apply at midday on a sunny day to weeds growing in direct sunlight because alcohol breaks down the waxy cuticle covering on leaves, leaving them susceptible to dehydration. It won't work in shady spots.

is for ... WD40
For fast relief from a bee or wasp sting, spray WD-40 directly on the bite. It will soothe the pain at once.

Y is for ... yoghurt
Put 200ml plain active-culture yoghurt into a blender, along with a handful of moss and about 200ml water. Blend for about 30 seconds. Use a paintbrush to spread the mixture wherever you want moss to grow - between the cracks of a stone path, on the sides of flowerpots - as long as the spot is cool and shady. Keep misting the moss with water until it is established.

Z is for . . . zips
Ever lost your car keys in the sand at the seaside? Stitch a small zipped pocket to one corner of the underside of your beach towel, just big enough for keys, sunglasses and maybe a few coins.

And if you're feeling really bold ...
Four bizarre problem-solving suggestions
· If you want to post a fragile item to a friend, wrap the item in disposable nappies before sealing the package. You can be sure your gift will arrive in one piece.
· To get chewing gum out of hair, apply some peanut butter to the matted gum and hair and rub the gum until it comes out. Your child's hair may smell like peanut butter until you wash it, but it is a better solution than having to cut the gum out.
· Wash lettuce in a washing machine. If you are expecting lots of people for lunch, place one pillowcase inside another. Fill the inside case with lettuce leaves. Close with string or a rubber band and throw in the washing machine. Now run the rinse and spin cycle.
· Get the comfort of a salon treatment when giving yourself a home pedicure. Just place marshmallows between your toes to separate them before you apply nail polish.

2023.06.10 23:10 ThrowRApas I (F30), caught feelings (M33) and wound up in a bit of a mess

So apparently my (F30) life is turning into a soap opera and I have myself to partially blame for this.
My boyfriend (M33, Henry) have been together for 9 years. We built a life together: house, pets, someday kids. We want to grow old together and love each other dearly, but there is some turbulence. We’re total polar opposites. When it works, it’s amazing. But sometimes it’s exhausting, having to work so hard on your relationship, because we are so different. A while ago we had a huge fight and for the first time I did not see a way out anymore. I told him maybe this relationship has ran it’s course and we better break up. He refused and wanted to work on us. I have to say, ever since then it does seem better. And we’re both making changes, things have calmed down.
I have a great career going on. Love my job. But. Since half a year I’ve noticed myself catching feelings for a co-worker, Zack (M33, single). Known him for like 2 years, but we never really bonded until recently (turns out, he always thought I was distant and I thought the same of him. Apparently we both have a case of resting bitch face). It started with typical work banter, then a friendship, then the type of friendship where you text each other sometimes late at night and talk about personal stuff (I never told him my relationship issues by the way). Not only is he incredibly handsome, he is smart, sensitive, funny and we have amazing chemistry. I thought it’s just a one-sided crush and will fade eventually. Besides, he told me hasn’t fallen for anyone past 5 years and he rarely even likes a girl.
I’m not proud at this (nothing physical happened, lets get that straight first. But I know I crossed a line). Last Friday, we went out with a group of co-workers. Zack, me, Julia (F25, a good workfriend of mine who just gotten out of a relationship) and some others. Eventually everyone had to go, except for Zack and I. We stayed at the bar and had the best time. The chemistry we had before, went through the roof this night. A lot of flirting and meaningful looks. Then the bar closed and we waited for a cab together. I was cold, he held me tight. It felt so good.
I was too intoxicated to drive home (parked my car near his house) and he wouldn’t let me drive anyway. So I went inside with him, only to sit on his couch to sober up. We had tea together. Then we talked until the sun came up. And it got pretty serious. No banter, no playful flirting. Just meaningful conversations about ourselves, our childhoods etc. I didn’t plan for it to happen, but I told him I developed feelings for him. And then he told me it was mutual. We were both sad about it. Because I also made it very clear, despite everything I want to work on my relationship and that’s the path I’m choosing. So nothing can ever happen between us, we will stay friends. Even if my relationship does crash and burn, I’d want to be alone for a while. He understood. And he never tried to make a move, except for silently staring into my eyes sometimes which made me uncomfortable AF because all of the butterflies. We didn’t want the night to end but I felt like I really had to leave when it was 6.30AM. We hugged goodbye at the door, but it was a long and loaded hug. He held me tight, I had my head on his shoulders and for a moment I could feel lifetime with him flashing by. If things were different. I still get butterflies thinking back about it. He only let go when I let go. And then I drove away. It felt like I just broken up with him, even though we never started.
I still love Henry. I don’t want to throw our life away. But I think I’m also in love with Zack. And to make matters even more complicated, because fuck me and my karma, Julia just texted me that she’s starting to like Zack. He has been extra nice to her ever since she had the breakup. But I know how Zack thinks of her, he said she’s like his little sister. Except obviously I can’t tell her that. The irony is that she wants my advice about this. (Absolutely no one knows about Zack and me, I plan to keep it that way.) What the hell should I say, don’t bother because he already likes someone else aka me?!
I’m just so done with this. I used to joke: I love drama when it doesn’t involves me. Look at me now. My whole life has been unproblematic and dramafree so I don’t know how to deal with this. And frankly, I feel too old to be caught up in this stupid love pentagon. There’s so much to unpack and I have all these feelings flying around giving me anxiety. Guilt, desire, frustration, doubts. Where do I go from here?
TLDR: want to fight for my 9yo relationship, despite secretly falling in love for a co-workefriend, Zack, and he’s falling for me too. Add into the mix that another co-workefriend just confessed to me that she’s starting to like Zack.

2023.06.10 23:08 Lucky_Bean_6444 AITA for ghosting a girl who was terrible to me and my friends for years

(posting this for a friend but i have similar experiences with this person). I (F12 at the time)(currently 15) had this "friend" (F13 at the time), from day one she rubbed me the wrong way, she was what you would consider a teachers pet, generally really attention seeking and you could tell she had some problems to work out. One day, when I was at home having lunch with my dad, she started calling me, at first i simply declined the call, the she kept calling so i told her to stop because at that point my dad was getting mad that i was on my phone at the table. After that I finish eating and get up from the table to go answer her, i pick up the call, she hangs up, and this went on for about ten minutes. At that point she sent me a text that said "we can't be friends anymore", it was very odd, because we had known each other for less than two weeks and we weren't exactly what I would call friends, i ask her why and she proceeded with that same statement. About five minutes later she calls me and i hear this almost satanic laughter, and her saying it was a prank. That was a very odd interaction but i gave her the benefit of the doubt not knowing her very well. Over the course of that year she acted very weird and was branded as the crazy wack job by the rest of our class, she would call me and my best friend "the only people who cared about her", and at that point i think that was true, i could see she had issues but i felt sympathy towards her. If you'd like me to go into better detail over what happened in that year let me know, but in particular this one episode scared me and convinced me on it's own to not talk to her again... We were in online school due to covid and on occasion we would all use private zoom chat to communicate during a class, so one day she started hurling insults at me, some of which were "the way you dress sucks","you're sit","you're nothing","i hate you" and "i will kill you, you need to die". My face turned flushed, i was honestly scared, for the purpose of the story let's call her Eva, her name also started with an E and that will be important later. I tell her to stop, obviously she doesn't. I ended up blocking her on WhatsApp. About twenty minutes later i got a text from an unknown number, it was her friend telling me to stop bullying Eva. I was shocked, at this point i had taken pictures, saved chat transcripts and made sure that you could tell i wasn't lying. I sent her friend a picture but she didn't believe me since we both didn't have a profile pic and both our names stared with an E, you couldn't tell who was who. I quickly changed it to name and last name so both the initials would show up, took another pic and the friend said Eva said it was a fake app. About an hour later the friend told me she believed me and i though that was the end. The next day, Eva's friend sent me a text saying, "i know i put you through hell the other day and told you not to talk to Eva for your own good, but you need to unblock her, she is ruining my life, unblock her now!". I told her no and so she kept on insisting until she said never mind. Literally not even a month later she was madly in love with a guy who just started dating one of my friends (a habit of hers was to start liking guys after someone claimed to like them), she even kissed him *assault and slapped his butt also assault and the teacher passed it off as "the heart wants what it wants", personally, i don't care how much of an asshole that guy was, that's just wrong, and if the situation was reversed, you would call him a r*pist... Anyway, after he rejected her, he and two of his friends all got woken up at 3 am by consecutive calls from the same girl who texted me (and a few others) who were trying to avenge her. Things got so bad that teachers had to bring in a psychologist to do a seminar in all of the classes at the school and some nasty stuff went down. Am I the asshole for cutting off communication with her? P.S.: she was adopted from a rough foreign country at four months old and her parents told the entire town so they could seem amazing basically making her a show pony, think that even though she doesn't remember the trama of her origin, the parents constantly bringing it up could have something to do with her possible mental issues. So Reddit, AITA?

2023.06.10 23:04 Branlynn11 AITA I 52f is angry for my Husband 53m still contacting his ex

AITA (52F) for being angry my husband (53m) still talks to his Ex
I 52F have been with my husband 53M for 28 yrs, married 20. Last week, he mistakenly took my phone with him when he left the house and left his phone behind. Looking for my phone, I saw his and decided to use it. I got a feeling like something wasn't right when I saw his texts and noticed he had one from his ex-girlfriend. So I decided to look into this further. I saw they had an ongoing text since 2019. Yes, I read them. There were many times he said things to her that shouldn't have been shared. Even called me bad names.
He travels for work a lot, and many times, he doesn't even tell me he has a trip to go on until he has already arrived at the location (I have expressed many times how this bothers me) He also has never he asked me to go with him even when I was off of work and could easily travel with him. However, he has told her about all his trips and has even invited her to show up (She lives in a different state). In his texting to her, she would ask him if he was available to talk at times, and he would say, " Not now, she's sitting here." Then he would call her back. He also told her about me being upset at things for no reason, and his love for her is still strong, and he would never love another the way he loved her. He offered to send her flowers and money many times. He has never purchased me flowers and said it's a money wasted. She told him that she treats her man like a king and would never be mad at him for no reason. But she also only hears his side where he's an innocent person and never does anything wrong. He told her I was jealous of her and he didn't know why. He was on a trip with friends in the city she lives and even invited her to come to his hotel, saying the guys are out right now, come meet with me.
I was so hurt and angry seeing this that when he got home, I blew up. I told him to leave and go be with her if he wanted her so badly. He tried to tell me nothing happened, and he didn't do anything with her. I dont want to believe he did anything, but the messages say otherwise. He broke my trust, even speaking to her. I asked him years ago to cut ties with her, yet he ignored me.
It's been 1 week, and he won't leave the house like I told him to. He says I'm stupid for thinking he did anything wrong with her, but I feel he did even if it wasn't physically. It was implied, and I'm broken.

2023.06.10 22:59 friendlylovinme 28 [M4R] England/Anywhere British Bi Botanist Bookworm Bored but Brimming with Bountiful Banter and Brewed Beverages!

Hello all you lovely people! That was about all the alliteration I could manage on a sunny Saturday evening. I hope my overly positive attitude hasn't got grating by now but I find its best to be outwardly positive, there's enough negativity in the world as it is!
Anyways a bit about me I'm just your average kinda guy (thrilling I know!) just out here looking for some new friends. I love sharing pictures of my angry little cat so sharing some pet pics is always a good ice breaker. I'm quite the tea aficionado so we can happily share our favourites blends too! I love spending time outdoors seeing all the world has to offer whether that's up a mountain or just in the garden taking care of my plants , although I'm equally content wrapped up under a blanket with my latest book.
I'm a pretty open minded person so anyone from anywhere is welcome and I think the world becomes a better place when we all learn about new things from new people from new places. So don't be a stranger hit me up with a message or chat and let's set sail on our brand new friendship! (I also love a good pun).

2023.06.10 22:58 MonkFancy481 what is wrong with my sister?

I am wondering about my sister so I can gain a better understanding. I am currently upset and am aware of this. Here's a bit of background about our family. My dad gave no positive attention to my sister, or me growing up, he is a control freak, he did nothing with us as children other than go shopping, or to the park as a family a few times, and family vacations to the same boring location over and over again (he is scared of change). My mum spent her life with my dad, unhappy, trapped, and controlled, and has to deal with him getting drunk every night. My mum is nice, simple minded though, and is so placid and easy going (both of her parents left her when she was very young and then she met my dad) but she did nothing about it and put up with it, even though she lives in misery in front of negative UK tv drama shows in the evening, while my dad drinks his vodka and repeats himself, whilst pausing the tv to comment to the room every so often!. They have no friends, at 73 my dad is still drinking a bottle of vodka a day, and it shows. His temper is terrible. If I give a list of things that I've noticed about my sister, how might she be diagnosed? I am on vacation with her at the moment and it's not going well. I am very sensitive, which doesn't help in dealing with her, here are some things that have happened, and some traits of hers that have hurt me in the past, I am wondering what might be going on. - she is very judgemental, and doesn't think about the big picture, and where her judgements might be coming from. - she is controlling (kind of like my dad who is a control freak. Over the years, even though she knows my dad is explosive, she hasn't given up, she'll push, and say things she know will really offend him, where as I would think, OK I know how this is going to go, avoid at all costs, she'll still go there and end up in a fight with him. - when my friend died in a motorcycle accident, I told her he wasn't happy in life for various reasons, and she responded with 'well maybe it's good that he passed away'. - today my foot was hurting and I needed a band aid. we were heading to get on a boat in spain, I asked her to wait for me while I got a band aid. So when I get back 3 mins later, she's gone, and has taken my mum with her t find the boat boarding area. I panicked and looked around, went in the wrong direction, got really stressed, she basically went to board the boat without me and tried giving me directions there. I was clear about where I was going and that i'd be back in a minute, but she had to leave to get the boat, which I found selfish and inconsiderate, we had enough time. Having no ticket, no idea what the name of the boat she had bought tickets for, anxiety, and feeling abandonment, I gave her a peace of my mind when I found her and told her you don't leave your family - your brother, when he's asked you to wait a minute. We are in a new country in a busy part with boats EVERYWHERE in all directions.Not that its relevant, but my mum chimes in with 'you shouldn't have wondered off!!!'. argh! - my sister is clumsy, quite ego based, and seems to think highly of herself but in an ego way. - she can't drive a car, she failed her test over 20 times before giving up, which deep inside I felt, that if she did drive she would crash. - I once taught my sister how to double click on a mouse, and she couldn't do it. - she is heavy footed, and has a bad knee as a result (stomps about a bit) - she can be nice in offering water, food, and making nice gestures, but after she does something more serious, like leave me ditched, I find it hard to accept these gestures immediately afterwood, although she is trying, I just have a knee jerk reaction where I want to be left alone. - she doesn't seem to consider me properly. she does in a surface level type way. but even this trip, i'd asked her to include me. she books it, then tells me after, I reluctantly buy my tickets too, even though the hotels only offer 2 beds, and no 3 beds, so it's quite expensive for me. - she isn't smart mentally at playing board games, or sports. - she is unhappy with her weight (been dieting forever since young) always talks about my mums weight, what my mum is eating, and judges. -Once I took my top off a few years back, I was in shape (not overweight anyway) and she grinned and looked me up and down, not in a pervy way, but in a judgemental way, and I find it hard relaxing, knowing the judgements might be there. - she is VERY animated. She is usually either frowning or has a weird look on her face, she wears her inside on the outside. I will say, that I have a bit of this also. but nowhere near as bad. - she has had cognative behavioural therapy a long time ago and found it beneficial, but I think that she needs more, she didnd't follow up with any of this type stuff after it seems like a wasted effort (although maybe not) - Once I huffed because she asked me to get something after a long day and I had just sat down, I was tired, and she exploded in rage. Creaming somewhat like a demon. Or george castanza's father, if you know who this character is! - This was taught by my dad (blasting if the conversation doesn't go his way) and she resorts to this sometimes and it's akward and when she does I just cave and leave it it's too much. I grew out of this in my early 20's after being away from my father for the last 20 years, and I'm happy I did because I know it's abusive behavior and unacceptable. - She does try to make amends, but again it just feels like... after the treatment I've had enough... and I'm stuck on vacation with her sitting in my hotel room because i've had enough of it for a day (feeling like a loser over here with some guilt because I am not handling her very well). - She isn't good with riding bikes, her motor skills seem ok at first glance, but she is pretty clumsy. One the way here, she almost sent my mums luggage to france, instead of spain. - she has never saved for a home. she spends her money on vacations, multuple vacations every year. - With this vacation, she doesn't appreciate I've spent 5000 on the trip. And planned everything, asking me if iher plans are OK, but really, she knows what she wants to do and will get v upset if I interfear. I did suggest a town I wanted to visit, which she quickly shot down. She does however say we can pick a day to do all the things she wants, and asks me what I want to do sometimes, but I feel reluctant to want to work with her because it feels like we are not playing on an even playing field to begin with, so I just give up and do what she wants because it feels crappy. - My 19 y/o daughter doesn't appreciate her meatheadedness and didn't want to come on the trip because of her, which I understood and didn't give her a hard time over. She has hung out with her before and finds her mental behavior annoying. - She calls herself a crazy cat lady!! proudly and strangley! - after some drinks recently at a family gathering, after a few drinks, she shouted / proclaimed in a proud angry righteous way 'I"M A CRAZY CAT LADY AND I DONT F'INGGGG CARE'. I just looked at her stone cold sober like... j christ... (she has two cats and likes to pet random cats like most cat lovers do. - She is very surface level. Somewhat obvlivious, I am more of a deep thinker, much more empathetic and thoughtful when it comes to others, which makes being around her difficult. I am really into self awareness, because i've had a lot to work through. Although I know this isn't about me (this is where the part of being being upset is probably not keeping me on topic). - She is narrow minded at the best of times. I realise some of the above might seem laughable. Doing my best to paint a picture, and probably venting as well. I am familiar with narcism, but I am hoping for a more accurate idea of what might be going on, obviously I won't take it firmly as a diagnosis, but I am just wondering what could be going on with her mentally, is she on the spectrum or something else?

2023.06.10 22:52 i_donotKILL I played the Elevator Game and ended up in a world I cannot return back from. Please do not play this game unless you want a similar fate.

I am writing this in hopes for some help and to guide others to not have the same fate as me. I think I have made the biggest mistake of my life. It has been 5 months since it happened and I haven't been able to fix it. This phone is the only connection to the realm of my birth. My original world. I probably cannot undo my mistake but I can guide future players.
My phone it's Android. It has an IR blaster, the only reason I bought it, and for some reason, this phone can hold its network through dimensional change. As if it's a loophole, a glitch in the broken matrix that i was facing. Not that i could actually make any use of it because I am still here.
The people here look like us. They all do. They are very sapient. They look just like us. But my bones know that they don't have the same origin as I do. They are good though. Have the same societal issues, the same intolerable governing body, protestors, and unrealistic agendas, the left wing and right wing at each other's throats. People who should touch some grass have podcasts. People who should have podcasts enjoy their lives. They are humans, just like us, but they are not us.
The rules stated by the urban legend still strike the same to this day if time and space follow the same routine, follow the floor number pattern, pay no heed to the lady that enters the elevator on the 5th floor, leave the building immediately if you return to floor 1, etc. I followed them all correctly, but the rules are no guarantee as to whether you will be safe or alive after your elevator journey is done, the rules only make sure the procedure is correct.
Hey you know what I will write down the rules in short, for your reference to my guidelines but the rules should always be memorized to your bones and spine, this is your SOS and your key. You will find the set of rules on any website. I suggest visiting multiple of them before you start your endeavor. Because each of them gives you different kinds of warnings, something the successful players learned from their own experience. And take this advice of reading through all of those points from this unsuccessful player.
One thing the rules on blog sites don't mention is the choice of which world you want to enter. Because most players enter an identical world with no electronics and no living thing around them. Only a red crossed window that's far stretched away from where ever you look and keeps on moving further away from you. My case was vaguely different.
  1. So firstly all you do is enter a building with more than 10 stories.
  2. Enter the lift via the first floor and only by pressing the "up" button
  3. Follow a pattern of floors, press 4 then 2 then 6 then 10 then 5.
  4. On 5 a lady shall or shall not enter your floor. Then press 1
  5. When you press 1, you will either reach 1. or you will reach 10.
  6. If you reach 1, get the f out of the building and don't come near it, not in 6-7 months i suggest.
  7. If you do reach 10 congratulations. your first part of the journey is a success
now Something, about the lady. Do not interact with her at any cost because of course she is not a lady, no matter how pretty she looks, oh you looked at her? alas, that's also a grave mistake. don't look at her, don't talk to her. Just ignore her total existence. If you know of the elevator game you are already aware of how you should not interact with the lady and all. But one thing is often left blurry is that what you should do if she does not enter. This was my case.
So my advice here: If the lady on the 5th floor does not enter. Then just hope that you do return to the 1st floor after you press it. if you do no then, and start ascending. continuously press any and every floor button for it to stop, or maybe the emergency or call button so that the staff can stop the elevator. Because if you end up reaching the 10th floor, good chances are you get to meet me and we make a cute therapy consult group for people who can't return back. :)
I remember everything from that night so vividly. I did your usual pattern follow. I entered the lift when no one was using it. I entered 4. went up there, meh nothing happened. Then again I pressed 2. I felt a vague chill around me. As if the mechanism of the ritual was understanding my intention. I pressed 6, then after it reached 6, I pressed 2, then 10 then 5. Oh, 5. The elevator door opened. And there she was, standing with all her glory. I did not look at her. but of course, i could see her from waist to bottom. She was dressed in Russian traditional clothing. not something i was expecting from an urban legend that became popular in Korea and japan. I think her wardrobe is a good collection from all cultures. or maybe there's more like her? Who knows?
I could feel it in my spine she was looking at me. She stopped the elevator with her foot so that the doors don't close and asked, "Baby which floor are you going?"
I followed the rules, did not look at her, did not reply to her, and completely ignored her.
She said, "Not much of a speaker eh? no worries have your ride. I hope you have a better life."
I have no idea why she said that. Looking back I think she knew what was going to happen to me. She knew that I was not going to end up in the world most player venture into. "Better life," she said.
She did not enter the lift and I pressed 1. The ritual, now tainted because she did not enter, worked. I reached the 10th floor. And when the doors opened, it was like nothing changed. The building I entered was a hotel. The housekeeping staff was running around. I heard children crying. Some Karen was screaming at a worker because her coffee, which she made from their amenities tasted bland. It was very confusing for me. I think I assumed the ritual did not work. And the lady was just another lady who could have been high. I walked out of the elevator and I felt great.
"those silly online urban legends, such lies" I probably had muttered to myself.
I took the lift again, reached the ground floor, and walked out of the building. Everything was going well until my head started hurting and spinning. and i was slowly passing out. and that's the exact moment i remembered from one of the posts of an earlier player "Do not at any chance lose your consciousness. and if you do, no matter where you wake up, return to the building, re-follow the exit ritual pattern and return to your own world."
My head felt dizzy as I woke up. In my very room. I thought to myself, was it all a dream? Did I search so much about some damn urban legend that I had such a deeply engraving dream? For heaven's sake. I jerked myself up and got down from my bed. Even my clothing is same as the last evening. I didn't know what was more weird, that i was wearing the clothes from my dream or that i remember the dream so vividly that i can even recall the outfit i was wearing. Also my phone was in my pocket. This is something i just never do. No matter how sleepy i am. i keep my phone on the other end of my table, in case it might just blast if the lithium goes through a thermal runaway.
AND! That is when i noticed. My table. It was completely on the opposite side. No no, it is right beside my bed, just like every day but the bed, and the entire room, its opposite. As if it were mirroring the room i know. Also, It wasn't just a complete mirror. my room was smaller, just a bit in breadth. One wouldn't notice it even if they visit my room on a weekly basis. But it's my damn room of course i would know even if a fly moved differently. Lo and behold, that extra loss on my room, was added to my washroom. Again, one wouldn't just notice it right away.
In a nightmare-like urgency, I rushed down the stairs to call complain my mother, and that is when the realization hit me that I did, in fact, play the elevator game. My dad was there. In the kitchen. Alive and happily married. Figuratively much different from how I remember him. I stood there in shock with my mouth wide open. How could this be? I remember my father. The last time I lived with him was until I was 9. When my parents parted ways. The last time I saw him was when I was 11, when he died. Not that I cried, he was far from what a father is supposed to be. I am 25 now.
"Good morning Sweetie!" His voice sounded oddly different. I was utterly petrified by this moment. There was a quirky yet calming nature to his sound which creeped me out even more. I dashed out of the house while grabbing my backpack from the sofa. I could hear him call out my name in my concern. This is it. This is definitely it. I crossed the borders of the unknown realm. But why are people here? Isn't it supposed to be dark with no one in it? No electricity and all ? But there is everything. This is a whole other world, what went wrong?
I had to return to my world. I ran through the roads and traffic to the hotel. Hotel Sunset. As I crossed the roads I could see it all. Cars stopping at the orange light. People walking in blue. I mean they are still following basic physics by using orange, longer wavelength for stopping cars. but does Red not exist in this world? not it does, OH MY GOD, the road lines are red.
I hurried through the crowd to reach the hotel. I pulled out my phone, which was surprisingly working perfectly. Internet, gps everything. It said i reached my location. "Hotel sunset"
I looked up, it said "Hotel Moon shine". I am surprised it wasn't named "moon rise", it'd would have been the cherry on top then.
I walked in, the Interior looked the same. I waited and waited and waited for the evening to hit and the horde to lessen. I stood up and walked to the lift. I repeated the entire process.
The lift stopped at 5. Instead of the lady, someone else entered. I of course didn't look up, but they entered hurriedly, screaming my name and i had to look up, i was already freaked out at this point. It was me. I was looking at me. she, well me, or wait she? she held the lift by her foot. What's up with women in the elevator game to hold the elevator by the foot?
"what did you do!? " I - I mean she said, one that looked like me.
"what did i do?" i replied back. . Whoever this doppelganger was. sure i was petrified. but here i was.
"DID THE LADY ENTER YOUR LIFT ?" she screamed at me.
"wha?" i was trembling at her screeching was. the white portion of her eyes started to redden.
"she didn't." i replied and slowly lost my leg strength and somewhat collapsed while sitting down.
"why? why did you complete the ritual then? did you not read before you did? you are supposed to be me, you are supposed to be smart. heck, aren't you supposed to be smarter? oh my god. is that my backpack or yours?"
I just shook my head and handed her the backpack, it was hers definitely. I never put on any anime pins on mine. Speaking of anime pins, naruto here has pink hair. Isn't that cool?
she took out her phone and said "If you want to go back home go to this tumblr account and download the app. The account is called "
And she left.
Was that the me of this universe? do we have counterparts in every universe? How many universes are there? are these even universes the way our science teaches us universes?
The lift started to quake. the light started flickering and I could hear some noise. soft noises that slowly grew louder and louder until they became uncontrollable screams. my ear drums were hurting beyond control. until it all stopped and the lift door opened. I stepped outside. Yet I was still there at "Moon shine hotel".
I tried the ritual again. I ended up back here. To floor 1 and I went back "home" to my "dad" and "mom". For the next 7 days, I kept on going back to the elevator, trying the ritual continuously and failing. On my way, I noticed new and new things about their world. These people like to greet each other in a very weird way. They grab each other's throats and smile. Almost sadistic. Language is very similar, but there are a few words and phrases here and there that have changed with customs and traditions. Honey here tastes like metal. Cows don't Moo, and birds chirp, but the sounds are unfamiliar, dogs don't exist. cats are the only domestic animals here. I read similar things in some blogs, but never did I think I would get to experience them for real.
Either way. On every failed ritual, I reached floor 1 and went back home. and repeated the cycle Until the 7th day, I got so fed up, that I kept on trying multiple times. but all I did was end up on floor 1. But I saw the weirdest thing.
Well, I can fill in on what happens if you immediately don't leave the building after playing the elevator game and ending up on floor 1. You see, well better than seeing failing grades or not being able to return to your own world, ghosts. Yep pretty much. Deranged souls that roam around the building. That is exactly what you see. And once they notice your existence, god save you. If there is any.
Mine was rather sarcastic. They did infact noticed me. They all came running towards me, looked right at me, smelled me and then slowly moved away and kept on about roaming. My heart intensified so much, it felt like I just lost a marathon I almost won.
I saw a man, maybe a bit older than me, in his 20s, walk down the entrance come and sit beside me. "They won't attack someone who's like them. You are of no use to them. They used to belong here, but don't anymore. and you never did."
I looked at him with a frightening shock. I took my bag and ran back home. Only when i came back home i realized he could have had answers. But i was so terrified at the moment, the only thing I could think of was getting away from him. I needed answers. I need to enter the website the other me mentioned. I got a new phone from this world. they didn't have Google, but I tell you their search engine is much better, it has AI integrated within. The account never opened from the new phone. Tumblr did. but that account never did. Then I tried my own phone and voila! The page had nothing. A heading, a two-liner bio, and a link. Link to download the app. Tumblr happens to be one of the only few apps that do work in other dimensions. Apparently, it has something to do with the first person who jumped dimensions, not only did they jump, but they also jumped through time and made sure every world had Tumblr. It's kinda funny they could have chosen Reddit, it's much more effective.
I loaded the app. Its a 2010's forum-based app. There are discussion topics under which you make threads. You got a chat box to interact with other users. the main discussion had a guide. I searched through it and finally came to the part "how to enter and leave a mirror world" aaand its blank. well not totally. A couple of reasons saying why you should not enter it. A bullet point that said download this pdf to know how to return back to your own world. I hurriedly clicked on it and boom the file did not open. I have never been so disappointed in my life.
There are so many dimensions else than the one with red cross and mirror dimensions. it is almost like aliens exist because some "humans" look so different. some people probably might even have ended up on my world as well. I wonder how they are taking it.
Apparently, only devices of one world present in another world, or at least have been in a few can open the website and run the apk file. Only androids work across dimensions. There's a conspiracy theory that the creators of android have got something to do with the entire interdimensional rituals and breaking the laws of space and time.
Either way, hoping to get some results I posted on the site wishing for some advice on opening the file or someone just copy-pasting the rules I guess.
I received a DM saying, "Since you have successfully crossed a mirror dimension You are capable of much more than you can imagine. But you should know how to use them, you have to be responsible for every move you make"
Good lord, I am not Spider-Man. The user further said, " I do not know where you are from, but I am from dimension 17391, go to the universal map translator and put the location, "Kairo office main building, st. red 22209". It will automatically give you a few building locations of your world." But the interface is very slow. Because it's not a singular place that has a counterpart in every dimension, there is one in every 4 hours of journey. It's an arbitrary location. It will take some time. maybe days. But you will reach."
I asked the user a dozen questions, how do I find the translator map, how many universes are there, and what do I do when I reach there? Why does everyone speak English? But they never replied. But now I have something, hope. A twinge of hope.
I searched around the app and found the map feature, build within the forum. It was on the top layer, but a confused me couldn't find it right away.
Ever since I found the map It has been nothing but a dilemma. 5 months. 5 months of intense searching and nothing. The first time I entered the location and searched, it landed me at the coordinates of a graveyard. The Irony. The second time, a fish market, the third, 3-storey guest house with the most normal Karen.
I can't even venture out every day. I have a "life" here that I have to maintain. This me had a similar job. Marketing manager at a pretty good company. The pay is almost the same. A bit lower here, but hey cost of living is also lower here. Putting those two together I probably have the exact same pay. But they have more facilities. Better vacation leaves. That is exactly what i took right after i downloaded the app, to understand the world better, and the changes here and there.
Morning, I go to work. where I sort out the place I will visit. and after work, i leave. Some places were nearby, some were far. One was in the neighboring country, luckily, the passport here is strong. But none of them work. I think I have broken the "not your universe? not the place? click again" button. Sundays and Saturdays are for long-distance locations. Also every day i cannot afford to go, even though the pay is good. In my world I used to live alone with Mum visiting me now and then. She and I had a family business along with my job, so all was good. Here I don't have a place of my own. And I gotta pay the bills around the house and sometimes take care of the business as well. Things are so similar yet different. I feel likeIi live in a deja vu.
By now i have crossed out almost 75 locations within 5 months, all of them being complete failures. I have crossed out 60 universes that aren't this one. I have made multiple posts on that app, describing my condition, where i am, and which universe it might be. If i even know this universe number and input it, the map translator will work much much better. I describe my original universe in the posts expecting someone to understand me and maybe send me a picture of my mother and friends, but all i have received are words of sympathy and hopefulness.
A few more people have send me their "kairo" addresses but they all can send only one to two messages before the chatbox stops. One of them managed to message me that i have to enter my universe number in the settings for the interface to work better. I also haven't been able to find the man from the hotel on the app or at the hotel either.
what do I do? Any piece of advice?

2023.06.10 22:50 hcilm 23 [M4R] Western WA/Anywhere - I'm a little lost. Can you help me find my way to your fascinating personality?

Hi there, I hope you're having a great day wherever you might be reading this! I'm mostly looking for a special someone with this post, but if anything I write really grabs you or it works out better as friends, so be it. A good new friend never hurt! It's been a while since I last dated seriously, but I've spent that time making myself into someone I'm happy with and am hoping to find someone that complements & compliments me.
A bit about me: * Pale, blue eyes, reddish-brownish-blondish hair, 5'11", square build. Your picture gets mine * Kind of an ambivert, tend to do pretty well with other people and I can match or adapt to your vibe. It'd be a big plus if just existing in the same space without being focused on each other all the time was okay with you though! I find that pretty calming and a good sign overall for friendships/romantic relationships * Career-wise focused on medical stuff, planning to be a paramedic eventually * As far as hobbies go, I'm into Jiu-Jitsu, gardening, cooking, D&D, gaming, reading, and volunteering. I try to cook something new and interesting at least once a week. My fettuccine alfredo is to die for and I love pampering friends and dates with good food. As far as gaming goes, some friends and I recently got the Muck achievement in the game Muck, which took a lot of doing and is the hardest achievement on my Steam library by far. The best book I've read recently is probably Anna Karenina! If you're into any of the same hobbies, I'd love to hear about it! * I was going to drop some random facts to give insight about myself, but nobody can be summed up in a few sentences, so you'll just have to get to know me if you're curious :)
Hopefully you: * Are 19 - 25 years old and live nearby or have plans to move here sometime soon. I'd make exceptions for the right person, but these would definitely be preferred. * Take at least reasonable care of yourself mentally & physically. I'm definitely more demisexual & personality influences my perception of attractiveness a lot, but mental & physical well-being is important! * Would consider yourself some form of left-leaning politically. * Have good moral character. * Don't want kids but do love animals. I got a vasectomy a while ago and won't ever be having children. I love animals though and want pets of my own in the future, so hopefully you do too! Looking forward to hearing from you!

2023.06.10 22:49 Mediocre_Skill4899 Hotel Room + Rental Car share from Nashville airport.

Hello lovely people! I'm wondering if there are any kind-humans out there planning to attend Bonnaroo on Saturday only, who would be interested in sharing a hotel room and a rental car? I'm excited to celebrate a friend's birthday at the festival and have already reserved a hotel room within walking distance to the venue. I'll also be renting a car at Nashville airport. However, I need to catch a flight on Sunday before 2pm, so I plan to hit the road by 10am to make it back to Nashville in time. I'm looking for one or two responsible and PLUR people to split the cost with. I have work on Monday and Electric Forest festival the following week, so I'm hoping to make the most of my time at Bonnaroo. Let me know if you're interested!
Cost is expected to be about $450 split between us. A female or couple is preferred for my comfort/safety.
About me: 33-year-old experienced festival goer. I am happily married, live in Vegas & coming solo because my husband will be in Mi preparing for Electric Forest.

2023.06.10 22:28 jnf_goonie 35 [M4F] Looking to get back into the dating scene

I haven't dated for a few years. Between juggling a full-time job, doing my Masters, and general life responsibilities I just couldn't find the time to dedicate to someone. Now that I've completed my Masters I'd like to get back into dating and spending meaningful time with someone. I've tried online dating and matched with many girls but when asked to meet up for coffee or drinks, it seem the conversation just fizzles and dies LOL! I think girls on dating sites probably get a shitload of messages and have a hard time deciding who to see perhaps.
Here's a few things about me:

2023.06.10 22:16 Equimanthorn333 39 [M4F] Hamilton, Ontario, Canada- metal gamer dude looking for new friends

Hey all, 39m Hamilton here, looking for new friends, maybe more. I’m 5’8, blonde/blue, and I have a beard. Alternative-looking, metal dude.
music (mostly metal, but try and find something I’m not at least a little knowledgeable about)
video games (roguelites like Binding of Isaac, reluctantly League of Legends, but I like a little of everything, was playing Valorant and Overwatch recently)
film (mostly horror, top 3 of all time for me are The Shining, The Exorcist, and Hereditary)
Things I’m passionate about:
I’m finishing my Library Technician Diploma, so community outreach mixed with access to information for everyone.
I also write, mostly horror but I’m all over the place and always like feedback on my work.
Actually being empathetic, not just telling people you are (I’m aware of the irony of putting this here)
Metaphysics and the occult (specifically the psychological aspects behind these things, dw I’m not looking for rabbits or hats)
Women I’m interested in:
-Gamers! (if you wanna play League, the next few requirements don’t apply, I’m always looking for new gamer friends)
-Childless and not looking to change that
-Within Ontario, ideally in Hamilton
-Openminded and not preachy (this applies to religion, lifestyle choices, politics, etc)
Bonus points if you have a cute doggo or kitty! If I seem like your type, inbox me a number of pics of your pets between 1 and several thousand. Or just say hi, you do you.

2023.06.10 22:10 centipede_ss Please help I need advice I don't know what to do

My friend says im distant
My friend constantly says im distant despite my repeated efforts to communicate with her and constant chatter with her.
A little background of us; we have been friends since tenth grade, and ever since, we have been inseparable. Texting always, hanging out always, sitting beside eachother in class... when we graduated we even booked it so we had university classes together in each semester. Even have jobs that were the same. ( we were janitors together and now we work at a different job together. ) However, throughout this time my friend had been a little toxic toward me. When I would do something as simple as wear one earring or when I didn't ask her for a new mask when mine broke, she'd give me the silent treatment or flat out make fun of me. ( she also suggested to move me out of a hotel on a trip that I had invited her on and have me stay like six blocks away In a different hotel just because she wanted her drinking buddy in the hotel with us who I wasn't comfortable rooming with. Just because I don't drink either. I sort of blew up at her crying and ranting for this reason because I was so upset. ) There have been so many instances where she's been like this...
She says everytime she says to me that I seem distant that I shut it down and give her every reason why she shouldn't feel that, but I do that because I have done nothing but been there for her. When her and her boyfriend were arguing I would drop everything in the middle of the night to walk to her house just to make sure she was okay. Yet, to her, I am distant. What should I do? Do I have the right to be upset at her? I need advice.

2023.06.10 22:10 Far_Capital_7741 Two Friends, One Booking

Hi everyone.
Myself and a friend have booked a cruise together where we’ll be sharing the same suite cabin.
How should we do the travel insurance? Each book our own policies / use our own annual policies .. or .. both purchase the same policy where you click that it’s for ‘a couple’?
I’m thinking how would it work if we had separate policies and Person A broke a leg and couldn’t travel? Would Person A’s provider divide the price in to two and just pay out on their half of the policy, with Person B then still needing to travel alone?
Sorry if this sounds a stupid question 😊 I’ve only ever travelled where I’m paying for my own flights and hotel on completely my own booking.

2023.06.10 22:06 BudandTender The Rise of CBD as a Wellness Supplement

The Rise of CBD as a Wellness Supplement
Global Wellness Day 10th June


Cannabidiol, commonly known as CBD, has taken the wellness industry by storm in recent years. With its growing popularity, it's essential to understand how this natural compound can be used as a wellness supplement without discussing any medical uses. Derived from the hemp plant, CBD is a non-psychoactive component that doesn't produce the "high" associated with marijuana use. This article aims to explore the various ways people are incorporating CBD into their wellness routines and the potential benefits they may experience.

1. Stress and Anxiety Relief

In today's fast-paced world, many individuals are constantly searching for ways to manage stress and anxiety. One popular method is through the use of CBD supplements. Although not medically prescribed for these conditions, anecdotal evidence suggests that CBD may help promote relaxation and a sense of calm. By supporting the body's natural ability to cope with stress, CBD can potentially improve overall mental well-being and contribute to a more balanced lifestyle.

2. Sleep Support

A good night's sleep is crucial for maintaining optimal health and well-being. However, many people struggle with insomnia or poor sleep quality. Some individuals have turned to CBD as a natural sleep aid, claiming that it helps them fall asleep faster and enjoy a more restful slumber. While the exact mechanisms behind this effect are still being researched, preliminary findings suggest that CBD may interact with the body's endocannabinoid system to regulate sleep patterns.

3. Post-Workout Recovery

Athletes and fitness enthusiasts are always on the lookout for effective ways to enhance post-workout recovery. CBD has emerged as a popular supplement for this purpose due to its potential anti-inflammatory properties. Inflammation is a natural response to physical activity but can sometimes lead to discomfort and delayed recovery. By incorporating CBD into their wellness routine, some athletes believe it helps reduce inflammation and muscle soreness, allowing them to bounce back more quickly after intense workouts.

4. Skincare and Beauty

The beauty industry has also embraced CBD as a key ingredient in various skincare products. Rich in antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties, CBD-infused creams, lotions, and balms are believed to help combat common skin issues such as acne, redness, and irritation. Additionally, CBD's potential moisturizing and soothing effects make it an attractive option for those seeking natural alternatives to traditional skincare products.

5. Mindfulness and Meditation

Mindfulness and meditation practices have gained popularity as effective ways to promote mental well-being and relaxation. Some individuals incorporate CBD into their mindfulness routines, claiming that it helps enhance focus and concentration during meditation sessions. By potentially reducing distractions and promoting a sense of calm, CBD may serve as a valuable tool for those looking to deepen their meditation practice and achieve greater mental clarity.

6. Pet Wellness

The use of CBD isn't limited to humans – many pet owners have also begun incorporating CBD supplements into their furry friends' wellness routines. Although not medically approved for pets, anecdotal reports suggest that CBD may help alleviate stress, anxiety, and discomfort in animals. Pet-specific CBD products, such as treats and tinctures, are formulated with appropriate dosages to ensure the safety and well-being of our four-legged companions.

7. Culinary Creations

For those who enjoy experimenting in the kitchen, CBD can be a versatile and exciting ingredient to incorporate into various recipes. From smoothies and salad dressings to baked goods and gourmet dishes, the possibilities are endless. By adding CBD to their culinary creations, individuals can enjoy the potential benefits of this natural compound while indulging in delicious and nutritious meals.

Safety and Quality Considerations

With the growing demand for CBD products, it's crucial to prioritize safety and quality when selecting a supplement. Consumers should look for reputable brands that provide third-party lab test results to verify the purity and potency of their products. Additionally, it's essential to start with a low dosage and gradually increase as needed to determine the optimal amount for one's individual needs.


As the popularity of CBD continues to rise, more and more people are discovering the potential benefits of incorporating this natural compound into their wellness routines. From stress relief and sleep support to skincare and culinary adventures, CBD offers a versatile and exciting way to enhance overall well-being. By prioritizing safety and quality, individuals can confidently explore the world of CBD and discover how it may contribute to a happier, healthier lifestyle.

2023.06.10 22:03 CalmEnough Can 5 cats (and 2 dogs) happily live together?

My cat and I recently moved into my sister and her fiancé’s house with their 3 cats and 2 dogs (currently 4 cats in total). The house is roughly 1,000 square feet and has 3 bedrooms.
They’re currently fostering a mother cat and her litter of kittens. We all love this one kitten and I want to adopt him. However, I’m living with my sister for at least 1-2 years and I worry about the quality of life of all the animals involved.
The only reason I’m considering keeping one of the kittens is for my cat to have a friend for when I finally move out. Also, my room, bathroom, and guest room is separated by a large pet gate so the two cats would have their own space.
Be honest because we won’t keep the kitten if the risks of poor quality of life are too high.
