2023.06.08 20:11 dark_cloudy_eclipse Thoughts on (nearly) daily good morning texts - is she flirting with me?

Happy Pride!!! <3
TLDR: newly separated, and i havent dated women in years. i cant tell whats going between my ex-coworker and i. she sends good morning texts nearly everyday. is she interested in me or im just a pal?
I (25 enby/he/them) need clarity. Like many of us, I can't tell if someone is flirting or not. My ex-coworker (23 she/her) and I send good morning texts (buenos diaz).
A little about me: I'm married to a cis-man (he/him). We are separated but living together. My husband knows I'm a lesbian, and we are fine with dating other people. My ex-coworker understands my relationship with him. I haven't dated women in years!
The good morning/buenos diaz messages (initially on Slack) started when we used to work together (remote work, we don't live in the same time zone, AND WE HAVE NEVER MET IN PERSON). I thought the messages were friendly/coworker morning texts. When we worked together, we would typically talk on Zoom most of the shift. We would talk about our weekend plans, dinner ideas, what we had for breakfast, future trips, my marriage and other casual topics. I didn't think any of it because she's a coworker.
When I left my job, she would send me daily good morning texts (iMessage). I still didn't think of anything of it. She wanted to text all day, but I didn't want to. There were a couple days where I didn't text back bc I'm not that kind of every day/all day texter. At times, she would double, triple, etc text when I didn't respond. Again, I didn't think any of it. I thought maybe she's bored or other things.
I think she got the idea that I didn't care to text every day bc we don't anymore. We text 3-5 times a week. I'll sometimes send a good morning text and she'll sometimes send a good morning text. To note, we send voice messages, too. although, we talked all day, she would never say good night (which to me is very intimate, and that made me think that these gm texts and talking all day was some friendly/passing the time talk). **now that im rereading this, she prob doesnt say goodnight bc im 3 hours ahead of her.** i started texting "im going to bed - night!", and she'd say "have a good night" or "night"! sometimes i dont, though.
She's in her travel era, and I'm kinda out of mine (traveled most of my early twenties, and im in my budget era). She is always inviting me to go on trips with her. She sends me tons of travel tik-toks. Of course I'd like to go on a trip, but MONEY/PTO (paid time off/vacation time).
I told my little sister and my friend about my situation. Of course my little gen z sister is like "omg she def digs you". My friend has the same sentiment.
there are times when i want to ask "do you send gm texts to your other friends?" "do you talk to your friends all day?"
idk, yall. Since it's been so long since i flirted/dated women, idk whats going on between my ex-coworker and i. i'd like to date her and see what could happen between us. we have similar interests, and i'd like to get to know her more. i know the answer would be to be straight-forward with her, but not all of are like that. what are yalls thoughts?
if it matters, im a cancer sun, cancer rising, and sag moon. she's a scorpio sun, taurus rising, and scorp moon.

2023.06.08 20:11 SleeperCells02 Relationships of any kind are near impossible for me.

I wish I was able to have a bare minimum of a couple friends I could talk to, but I have nobody. I've been hating how alone I feel and how it's not that people haven't tried being my friend, I'm just not capable of holding down friends. I've been loving the idea of a relationship, friends and dates but am never able to bring myself to it.
I have way too much on my plate at the moment, with there being severe PTSD and Depression as well as SAD, so I feel as though I'll have to stay this lonely until my therapist can help me get back together, which I feel like will be over a year or so.

2023.06.08 20:10 PiousAugustus Received a subpoena to testify - How do I prepare?

Hello.
I recently received a subpoena “to testify as witness in a criminal action.” Can someone advise me what I need to prepare? I am in Houston, Texas, in case it matters.
Background: Back in March, I called in a noise complaint against a neighbor - a bar near my house. The cops showed up, checked the sound levels and wrote the bar a ticket. This has been an ongoing issue. The bar opened after my wife and I bought our house. It became obnoxiously loud about a year later, during peak COVID when it shifted from speak-easy to nightclub vibes. Barely a month after receiving the the aforementioned ticket, the bar hosted a car meetup where attendees did donuts, burnouts and power slides for hours. I’ve met with the owner and asked if he can keep it down since his business is barely 250 feet from my infant daughter‘s bedroom, but I understand that we have different priorities.
My question is this: What should I do to prepare? I have a recording from the night in question (and from other nights), but what am I supposed to do with it? Do I play it for the judge? Am I going to be questioned? Should I call the court for more information?
This all new to me, and I just don’t want show up unprepared. Thanks for any advice.

2023.06.08 20:10 Smart-Yoghurt-674 AITA for cutting my sister off from my son after she threatened me over $20?

My sister (20F) has a history of mental illness. I've always been supportive and offered help whenever she needed it. She has lived with my husband (22M, let's call him Greg) and me on and off for the past two years. Last October, we agreed that she would pay us $400 a month to contribute to groceries and utilities since we were barely making ends meet. However, she had some car trouble in January and ended up buying a new car, which now costs her $800 a month with insurance. We didn't ask for money for a few months, considering her struggles, and she never offered either.
In March, Greg and I got married and decided to discuss a consistent payment plan and renegotiate the amount she would contribute, given her financial difficulties and the fact that she had quit her job. We had three conversations about this, but each time she got defensive and claimed she didn't know how much to pay. During the third chat, she suddenly started packing her things and two days later, she moved to Florida without informing anyone. I found out through her Snapchat story, and it hurt that she didn't show us any respect after offering her help and being open to negotiation.
When she left, she left behind a 9-cube shelf. I offered her $20 for it three days later, but she ignored my message. Eventually, she tried to sell it for $25, and since I didn't want to argue over $5, I decided not to buy it. About a month and a half later, Greg changed his mind and wanted the shelf. He told me he would handle it if she asked about it.
Last week, she suddenly returned to town for the summer and asked for money again. I regretfully responded snarkily, saying she should pay us back for the months she lived here for free. She immediately became defensive, and I tried to backtrack by telling her to talk to Greg about the shelf. However, she didn't contact Greg and instead started calling me names, threatening to break in and cause damage to our property and myself. As a mother with a nearly 3-year-old child, I take threats seriously, especially from family. In response, I decided to cut off contact until she seeks consistent therapy. I offered to help her with scheduling but made it clear that she couldn't see my son until she has been in therapy for a year. I also expressed my willingness to attend therapy with her. My intention is to protect my family and still support her. However, she responded by calling me toxic and manipulative.
It's important to note that my sister tends to do well for a few months and then spirals out of control. She also has a history of rejecting advice, especially if she feels attacked. So, I always try to approach serious conversations with caution to avoid triggering her. Unfortunately, I let my emotions take over with the snarky comment, and I admit my mistake in that.

2023.06.08 20:09 Sad_Independent_4176 Two people working together

So there’s two shoppers in my area, they used to use their own cars but the last week or so, they’ve been together. They’re the type to sit outside near the car, I’m assuming they think it helps (lol) and I can see them both on their phones, one even has two phones.. next thing you know, they’re walking inside together. It just kinda peeves me as myself and other solo shoppers are stuck sitting in the lot while they have double the chances of getting orders and they’re walking in constantly. Another shopper mentioned it to me so I started parking in view of them to see for myself. I passed them in store, she was in an aisle the same as me and when I passed by them again, there’s only one cart.. so clearly she was helping with his order or him helping her.
Maybe it’s just me, but this job is easy enough to not need two people working an order. Wouldn’t it just be more of a hassle with two people? Like “hey, run to this aisle & get this, and then meet me here!” Also what, splitting the pay? Idk, it grinds my gears.
Just a rant.

2023.06.08 20:08 4yelhsa From a Traumatic Teaching Experience to Engineering

Warning, this is a pretty long read. TL;DR: I spent 18 months working at the worst schools with the worst students experiencing terrible working conditions most people only hear about on T.V. before deciding to transition out of teaching and into engineering.

I graduated in December 2016 with a degree in Physics concentrating in secondary education. My degree program was essentially a double major, they removed the requirements for a couple of courses from physics major and added in an entire course load of education courses. I graduated with more than 160 credit hours and still I was terribly under prepared for handling a classroom on my own.

My practicum assignment was at a "good school". The teacher I worked under my last semester had nearly flawless classroom control; mostly due to the student population generally being well behaved, but I didn't understand that at the time. The classroom management during my teaching periods was also pretty good. She taught me her methods for classroom management and I thought I had it down. Plus when I left she sent me away with a large binder of her lessons, so I didn't really need worry about lesson planning. I thought I was ready. I was incredibly thankful to her and confident when I accepted my mid-year posting at a Title IX school.

And what a mistake that was. That school and that district was insane. I accepted a posting to teach Physics to 11 and 12th graders and physical science to the 9th and 10th graders. This school ran on a block schedule so I had 8 periods of approximately 30 students that where I saw half of my students every other day with 2 hour long classes. When I arrived I found that my senior students had been with a sub the entire first semester learning physical science, that their math teacher did not exist, and that their ability to handle the rigor of physics was at absolute 0. Almost immediately after I began all of my senior students were failing. Big problem.

I was quickly pulled into a meeting with the principal and leadership where I was essentially told that if these students did not pass my class I would need to look for other employment come next year. Crank up the stress. Administration did not care that these kids did not deserve to pass physics due to their lacking foundations in math. I still don't understand how they expect students to pass physics which is based on algebra II/trig/geometry when these kids are barely studying algebra 1 under a constant string of revolving incompetent substitutes. But I was scared, so I essentially removed all maths from my class and just taught conceptual things. Basically instead of I throw the ball do the math to determine it's trajectory based on these initial numbers, the tasks became I throw the ball explain draw it's flight path and explain why it looks like that. It felt like I was doing these kids a huge disservice, but at the end of the year most of my students had passed physics and were onto the next course.

Aside from the curriculum requirements, the classroom management that entire year was a crap shoot. I found it impossible to manage these students who could not understand the concepts and did not want to learn them. I had boys flashing me their genitals, there were fights, there were students tossing things everywhere, they just could not shut up for even a moment, they stood on tables, they took my things, they stood in my space, and it was impossible to get anything done. I even had one student try to bribe me with her car and "sexual favors" for a passing grade on the final (holy fuck that was terrible).

Notably I remember that sometime during my 3rd or 4th month there, a student I'd never seen before was escorted into my classroom by police in handcuffs. They sat him down without a word, uncuffed him, and pulled me into the hallway where I was informed that this kid was on some type of reformation program. That he'd be attending my class from that day forward and that if he misbehaved to call them (the police!?) because he was "active" and "serious". lol wtf? That student unsurprisingly was fighting in my classroom almost immediately.

And those were just problems in my classroom, in that school during my first (and only) semester there were numerous fights in the halls between students, and even some between students and their teachers, students were caught having sex during school hours, there was a sex scandal between a teacher and her student and then she disappeared shortly after. There was a gun incident at a basketball game. After that they started making teachers come to school an hour earlier so that we could search every student as they came onto campus. I pulled plenty of weapons off kids during this time. And they made a locked door policy so that if students were late and missed the morning check they'd have to come through the front office to get it done by the staff there. It was dreadfully ineffective. I watched students jump the fences and be let in by others daily.

Around this time we got word that were was a shooting at our feeder school (a middle school that sends their kids to our high school). A student was murdered right outside of campus (literally in front of the neighboring building).

I worked at that school for only a single semester, and that wasn't by choice. After scaring me about the security of my job I worked really hard to keep it. I kept up with the crazy shenanigans happening on and around our campus, more than 90% of my students passed my class (even tho in my opinion they did not deserve to) and I spent many late nights rewriting my lesson plans and grading the work of my 240 students. I arrived at school at 6am I didn't get to leave until 4pm and I spent all night until 12 or 1am preparing for the next day on a $32k per year salary. And none of it mattered. After doing everything they asked of me that semester, they pink slipped me anyway. Asking around, I found out that a large majority of the first year teachers receive pink slips regardless of their performance and as a big fuck you I guess. They expected me to apply for my job a second time where I would definitely get it again and start off the year with a reset tenure timeline.

So I decided "fuck that" and moved home onto my mom's couch in California after summer school ended. Remember that school where the murder happened? I taught summer school for high school and middle school students there. And unexpectedly it was the best time I ever had teaching. I taught 3 periods of high school students (chemistry cuz whatever I guess the administration didn't care or something) and I taught 1 period of 7th grade earth science. In summer school classes were about 45 minutes each and the max class size I had was 20 kids per period. I only taught 2 kids at the middle school level.

Don't get me wrong, the conditions were still terrible. There were actively constructing within the school building that summer. The AC was turned off. The available classrooms not under renovation were incredibly tiny such that even though I didn't have more than 20 kids, they all had to practically sit on top of each other with less than 2 feet between them at any time. Every morning I had to seat kids in a certain order just to make sure everyone could actually reach their seats they were so close together. If a student came late there was always this huge shuffle where like 10 kids had to move around to make space so the late person could reach their desk. My desk was shoved into a tiny tiny little space as well and it was a tiny little desk so small that they should've just given me another kids desk and taken the one I had away. I would've preferred the extra space. Chemistry was one of the courses I didn't have to take in college and I was super not qualified to teach it to high school students. (Really wtf were they thinking? Lol I'm sure there were a ton of kids who needed remedial physics). But it didn't really matter that I was under educated in chemistry, since my teaching hours ended at noon and I had so few papers to grade, I had plenty of time to learn the curriculum and develop a lesson plan for the next day with assignments after grading papers. That summer I could easily get into bed before 8pm. It was amazing honestly.

Because I had so few students compared to the regular term, I was able to interact with each of them. Instead of being a number or a statistic in my grade book each student that summer was a real person I knew. I knew what they liked and didn't like, I spent time learning their hobbies and what they wanted to do. For kids who wanted to pursue STEM I had time to give them more attention/ feed their passion and for students who wanted to do something else I had time to get to know them as a person and understand what made them passionate about wrestling, or hair styling, or being a mechanic or whatever it was. It felt like a vacation even tho I was still working more than 8 hours a day.

A vacation I really needed because at the beginning of the new school year I moved back home to my mom's house and began teaching at my old high school which I knew was going to be rough based on my own experience as a student. I was hired as a "long term substitute" which I understand to be a way to circumvent my lack of credentials in the state of California. It allowed me to essentially operate as the teacher without having a license to teach. I (ironically) taught mathematics (algebra I and geometry). My teaching conditions were much better than my old school in some ways and much worse in others.

At my first school the kids were unruly but there wasn't anything that was specifically targeted towards me. They would mostly act out towards each other and leave me out of it and my new school it was the opposite. The kids were incredibly close with each other, so I still had problems with talking and general misbehavior, but when they acted out it was much more likely to be directed towards me specifically. I received a ton of threats of violence towards me personally that year. "I'll beat your ass Ms. 4Yelhsa" or "My mom/sistecousin/etc will beat your ass Ms. 4yelhsa" and there were plenty of comments on my appearance, voice, level of income, etc. Instead of bullying each other the kids essentially bullied me and there wasn't much I could do about it.

This school used a method of conflict resolution called "Restorative Justice". This essentially meant that regular forms of punishment such as in school suspensions, or detentions, etc were reserved to especially bad behavior. When a kid threatened to hit me they would be removed from my class for a few days but for the comments it was expected that I would handle that on my own through these "restorative sessions". Basically if a student acted out in my classroom, I was supposed to schedule what amounts to a counseling meeting with them where we would both discuss what happened and come to some sort of accord. I would ask that student why they felt like acting out, I was supposed to inquire to them about how my methods of teaching or classroom management caused them to act out, then I was supposed to explain to them why acting out like that was wrong and get them to agree to a deal to stop acting out if I fixed the things they brought up during our discussion. A conversation would basically go.
Student: Ms. Yelhsa I talked over you because so and so was helping me with x.
Me: Ok well why don't you raise your hand and I can help you with that and that way anyone who has the same question can also get my help
Student: No. I didn't want to do that because I didn't want to talk in front of everyone
Me: Ok why don't you just hold it until after the lesson is done then?
Student: But then I'll forget.
Me: Well you can't talk while I'm talking because it disrupts the class and distracts me from teaching everyone
Student: It's not even that big of a deal. I was just talking with them real quick.
It never worked as kids just talked in circles and were always unwilling to compromise (obviously because they're kids). It was nonsense, it didn't work, and it made it impossible for me to remove distractions from my classroom. It also took time away from other students because I would need to spend minutes having 1 on 1 debates essentially with children about how they should be behaving in my class and trying to bribe them into good behavior. I'll give you guys an extra 5 minutes of free time if we can be quiet during the next 20 minutes kind of energy.

Fights at the second school didn't happen on campus as much as at my first school, but the violence off campus was immense. I feel like several children from this school died every month. We held memorials for them during lunch and spoke about them during rallies. Over the intercom they'd make announcements about it. I'd often come across groups of students weeping during passing periods or lunch.

There was one time where a student was absent from my class for over a month, let's call him Brian. As like what I always did I marked his assignments as 0's, I mentioned it to leadership, I sent home some nominal communication about his attendance/grades to the guardian on file, etc. I followed the procedure. Then one day he was just back randomly and I let him have it. I gave him this huge lecture about how he needs to be concerned for his future, that school is important, that a good education could get him out of this neighborhood with these gangs and drugs, etc. And he stood there and took it then after I was done he very calmly told me that he'd been shot and that he nearly died and that's why he was gone all that time. And I really didn't believe him (even tho I should have considering the frequent deaths of our students to gun violence). I told him he shouldn't tell jokes like that and then he showed me his wound.

Imagining myself marking his assignments as 0's not really giving to much thought on it, emailing his parents about his attendance, going about like normal. What if he had really died? And I marked his grades as 0's? He went from a C to a solidly failing my class between the shooting and his death? Then when they put him in the dirt , he's got an F in Ms. 4yelhsa's class because Ms. 4yelhsa was following the procedure. That thought really fucked me up for while.

Surprisingly, the only student I've personally taught in my class / knew on a personal level that was murdered was at that the "good school" where I had my practicum. His name was Jason. It happened after I had left, but I knew Jason. I knew what he wanted to be when he grew up. I knew he was upset with the lack of attention he was getting at home. I knew him. When he was gunned down at a fast food restaurant less than a mile from campus on a school day over a drug deal gone intentionally wrong. My mentor from the practicum personally reached out to me about it. When Jason died it was a big event at that "good school". It was unordinary, the school mobilized a lot of capital to take care of its students in the aftermath, hiring special grief counselors. I imagine it was spoken about for many months in the hallways, that they held many special events for the remaining students, and it's still probably brought up occasionally amongst the staff even though that cohort of kids is long gone.

But Brian. If Brian died, I knew it'd be just a little blip on the radar and then it's over and gone forever. They'll make a little announcement, they'll say his name next to the others during the next rally and then it's business as usual. The different experience between a child that attends a "good school" and grows up in a "good neighborhood" and the child who attends these Title IX schools in these deadly neighborhoods is just so incredibly different it's wild.

After that incident with Brian, there were three other major events that I experienced. One was a threat of a possible active school shooter. I really don't know what happened, there was a lot of confusion. Just a normal day, then an alarm, I remember thinking how I didn't remember there being a drill planned for that day. Then an announcement, then a lot of panic. Then I remember ushering kids from the hallway into my room, then locking the door, then shushing my kids (thankfully they were all very quiet for once), then turning the lights off, then encouraging the students to hide along the wall by the door, then taping paper over the doors window, then sitting in silence for a long while with crying and scared kids, and then it was over. I still honestly have no real certain information of what happened. From the grapevine I gathered that there was a man on campus who may or may not have been looking for someone and who may or may not have had a gun and who left pretty quickly. The majority of the time I spent locked in that classroom with those kids wondering wtf was going on, the situation was already over and no one knew.

The second event was very similar. I was monitoring lunch when a fight broke out (a pretty rare event surprisingly). When these fights break out there's always a ton of kids who crowd around the fighting students and make it extremely difficult to break it up. Earlier in the school year a teacher broke her wrist trying to break up and fight and we'd been given training to leave it up to the security on campus. So when the fight happened I didn't even try to get involved. I just watched from a little ways away. Then suddenly a student yelled that one of the people fighting had a gun. Instant mayhem. Kids running in every direction. Tripping, falling, jumping over each other, me doing my best to direct traffic. No one listening. The area starts clearing out quickly, but there was never a gun. That kid who yelled it out was just trying to be funny. It wasn't funny, but it was a relief.

Then the third event was the shooting of Stephon Clark. Stephon Clark had attended the school at one point. Random Fact: Stephon Clark and I actually went to that school during the same time period, but I didn't know him. He was one year younger than me. I have a lot of friends who are his friends it wouldn't be strange if I've met him a number of times and just can't remember considering how close our circle of friends were. The community around that high school is not very big it's often that the alumni still have sisters or brothers or cousins or just a little homie from across the way attending after they leave. Also everyone sort of has ties to each other in some way because it's a very insular community. So the shooting of Stephon Clark was a big deal on campus. But it happened very close to the end of the school year, and I ended up never returning to work at that school. I know there were a bunch of protests and walk outs on campus but I wasn't around to see it.

When that year ended, I thought I would be kept on for the next year. Idk what happened but I was never contacted about a contract renewal. I was a long term sub and not a teacher there and I later learned that the lack of contact happened in error but at the time it felt like I had been silently fired. As a sub I did not have an option to convert my 9 month contract to a 12 month pay out plan so that summer I lived off my savings believing that I did not have a job waiting on me at the beginning of the next school year and I had a decision to make. So far teaching had not been what I was expecting at all. I went from making 32k in Alabama to making 30k in California. I was beyond destitute. My quality of life that year was in the dumps. I lived on my mothers couch for the entire 9 months and my mom is low key a hoarder and her faux leather couch was peeling and flaking, so it wasn't really fun. I was making $15/hr and that's not a lot so I thought I'd try looking for something different. And it sucked. I sent a ton of applications in to laboratories with no bites. for 2 months I was unemployed, not eligible for unemployment, and I burned through almost all of my savings. Right after the school year started it was clear that I'd have to go back to school in order to get away from teaching. So I called my old academic advisor and holy hell that saint she accepted me on the spot. I remember she said "Don't worry just come back to school right now".

and I went "right now? The semester has already started and I haven't even applied yet"

and she told me not to worry about that. That she would handle it and she did. Shout out to her she changed my life. I guess this is a perk of going to a small school. She knew me very well because at my college there are less than 30 physics students across all levels at any one time. If the department drops much lower than that it's always at risk of being shut down. She needed a student and I needed a school. It all just came together.

I had to submit an application as a formality and then a week later I drove my crappy car that broke down everywhere from California back to Alabama as a graduate level physics student for the fall 2018 semester. I was homeless for a little bit but an old buddy from college let me sleep on his floor for $300/mo. Shout out to him. The house was trash with roaches and mice but it definitely beat sleeping in my car. I slept in the dining room under a table for about 6 months. I spent my last little money on a 7 dollar air mattress and a pump for it and that thing sprung a leak 3 months later. I was always waking up with my butt on the ground lol. I couldn't pay my rent the second month but during that month, I got an internship at a DoD contracting company starting that summer and my advisor put me in touch with a professor who had grant money for research assistants. I started making $1k per month off that. Plus I got a job as a waitress and I was in business. After that school year ended I started my internship summer of 2019. When it was over, during the end of the internship presentations while leadership was in the room, I threw it all out there and just asked for a job. Straight up I literally ended my presentation with "And that's why you should hire me". And those dudes said yea sure. My 10 week summer internship was directly converted into a co-op (with a pay bump. hell yea). A room opened up in the place I was staying at so I got upgraded from sleeping under a table to sleeping in an empty room. I bought another blow up mattress and quit my job as a waitress. ya girl started doing big things. I graduated on time Spring 2020 and my coop with that company was converted into a full time position and just like that I was an engineer.

One of these days, if I can, I'd like to open up my own school. I think that'd be really cool to come back not as a teacher with my boots on the ground but as a founder one day. And hopefully at that time I can help some of these kids from these Title IX schools change their outcomes and provide them with better opportunities.

2023.06.08 20:08 azurevin Is there overall little build variety that can perform at high lvls?

Let me precise what I mean: I've been looking at various builds since release, specifically for Sorceress, and anything and everything that has to do with Lightning skills pretty much requires Arc Lash as a base.
And even then, only pretty much one Mastery skill is "viable" - Ball Lightning.
If I, for example, wanted to go with Spark for Basic Skill (to attack from range and not melee like Arc Lash forces you to) and Chain Lightning as the main damage source, I'm already setting myself up for failure because Arc Lash has far better base scaling and hits many more enemies.
Chain Lightning only seems to have (correct me if I'm mistaken here) a single "decent" Legendary effect and of course it's not an obtainable Aspect from a Dungeon but a rare-ass drop that I haven't found a single one of for nearly 60 levels so far.
I really enjoy Vyr's Mastery for the visual chaos of unleashing all spells Lightning-related but if I want to go with Spark, then I can't go with Vyr's Mastery because then I won't benefit its bonus to Close Enemies, which means I'm forced to go with Overflowing Energy, which starts to build into Crackling Energy instead.
Maybe I'm too dumb to grasp these things but it seems to me like if you want to go for something very specific, many of the options available aren't exactly intuitive or relatively easy to put together.
And all that's not even mentioning the Paragon Board, which is a whole other level of complexity in itself (yeah I know you PoE players are probably laughing reading this lol but please realize not everyone's a nitty-gritty math-head min-maxer like you guys are).
There are SOME Chain Lighitning builds out there, whether on YouTube or otherwise, but none of them seem to be nearly as optimized as what Maxroll and their crew seem to be putting out; it's mostly that people were enjoying the well-known "Chain Lightning leveling build" and just went from there, trying out and seeing what sticks.
This has me worried for one reason - if a Chain Lightning build wasn't released on Maxroll, and bear in mind that people who prepared these builds are probably way more into this whole thing than 95% of anyone here on reddit - this most likely means there there isn't even a Chain Lightning build per se, or even if it is, we could expect at most a half performance of what the Arc Lash/Ball Lightning build does, which is too big of a gap to swallow for me.
Shouldn't it be possible to build whatever you want and not fall behind more than 50% of effectiveness behind the best meta builds?
Let me put it like this perhaps - now that I've hit lvl 60s and finally started to see what all the Refund costs amount up to, it starts to dawn on me that it is true what the devs have been saying - you really kinda cannot experiment with respeccing at all, because it will cost nearly all of the gold you currently have and that's beyond fucking dumb that you'd probably be in an easier spot just starting a whole-ass new character instead. I don't want to level a 2nd sorceress from zero (unless I happen to enjoy the Season in D4; that's perfectly fine) and I think that the majority of people share this sentiment.
All that said, please share what you think of Chain Lightning Sorceress build variations and perhaps you have some pointers you would be willing to share? Thank you!

2023.06.08 20:07 VaultTechy I have a collection of 7 very rare Trevor Something vinyls for sale

I'm curious what users here on the sub would value this collection at and if any are interested in purchasing. All vinyls are complete with mint packaging, with disks in MoFi anti-static sleeves and no skips/damage.
I have;
Deep Wave Data Dark Web Daemons - Red w/ Black Marble /55
Die With You - Clear Smoke /320
Love Me & Leave Me - Black /521
Microwaves - Teal Transparent (Coke Bottle Clear) /261
Soulless Computer Boy + The Eternal Render - White [Cloud White] Translucent /313
Ultraparanoia - Blue Translucent /522
Bots Don't Cry - Test Pressing /5
Currently there are no listed sales anywhere online of Bots Don't Cry as a test pressing, so that's the hardest one to provide a valuation for. Anybody who has a guesstimate please let me know!!
Posting here first to seek interest from TS fans before vinyl speculators/hoarders. Please comment or DM if you have any interest in making an offer - I have a few buyers for specific albums, so I've decided that after a week or so I'll start splitting these out; if you want to be notified when that happens or be first in line for a specific vinyl please feel free to send a message!
Thanks!

2023.06.08 20:06 ThrowRA_6418 My boyfriend (28m) wants to move. I’m (30f) not so sure.

My boyfriend (28m) and I (30f) met online. At the time, we lived 14 hours apart. There was a strong connection and we talked for 6+ months before we decided to give it a serious try. We have been together for 4 years now. The first year, we managed dating long distance. I then made the decision to move in with him and it was rough at first. I come from a very large and very close family and this was the first time that anyone had moved away. It was difficult for me to be so far from them to say the least. I had no friends out there, no relatives even close by, and the group of friends he had at the time were enabling his drinking and substance abuse, which caused lots of tension in our relationship and left me feeling isolated.
Eventually we figured it out. We started making some changes and working towards our goals and I really came to enjoy this new city. I had a good job close to home and made good friends with coworkers. He dropped his old friends, quit the substances, and got ahold of his drinking. He finally began pursuing his hobbies and ended up making lots of supportive friends in this new scene he had become a part of, which welcomed me with open arms as well. However, after two years of living together, he told me that he was unhappy. He hated his job, was not getting along with his family (they aren’t very close and there has always been tension and strong disagreements between them), and he was needing a change.
At first, our plan was to move to a neutral city that is equal distance between both of our hometowns. One night during our planning, he told me he thought it would be a good idea for us to move back to the city that I’m originally from. Despite how much I missed my family, I was not immediately on board with moving back. He seemed excited at the possibilities though, and after a lot of discussion, eventually we agreed to drop our plan of a neutral city in favor of moving to my hometown. We’ve been living here for a year now and it’s been great to be back with my family. They all love him! He gets along so well with my brother and my cousins, and constantly tells me how much he likes them and appreciates being a part of a “real” family.
Last night however, he confessed to me that he is unhappy. He has tried to continue his hobby out here, but the people are not as supportive, and it’s been 5 months since he even tried. There’s also a bit of a language barrier where he works, and he hasn’t been able to make very good friends. He misses his friends back in his hometown as well as the support that his hobby gets. I would not be immediately opposed to moving back if this is what he thinks would make him happy, but after two years of being away from my family when I first moved, I realize how much time I lost.
My grandmother seems so much older now. She’s dealing with several health issues and I know my time with her is limited. My nieces and nephews have all grown so much and I’ve missed out on a lot of bonding time. Our family has finally been getting back to having our traditional Sunday dinners regularly again after Covid put a stop on everything. It’s been so nice to enjoy this time together. I’m lost at what to do, but I can’t say that I don’t see where he’s coming from. I want him to be happy, but I also want to be near my family, and I don’t want to have to sacrifice our relationship in order for both of us to have what we want. Is there any way that I can have my cake and eat it too? 😞
tl;dr - Two years after moving in with my boyfriend (14 hours away from my family), he became unhappy and we decided to move back to my hometown together. Now a year later, he is unhappy once again and wants to move back, but I don’t want to have to leave my family.

2023.06.08 20:06 dancing-stars I still think about my high school sweetheart.

I (27F) still think about my ex from high school regularly. In high school I dated D for less than a year but I loved him dearly. At that time I unknowingly was suffering from bipolar disorder with manic episodes. Near the end of our relationship I went through the most severe episode I’ve had to date. I was lying, mean and started cheating on him. He knew and was so patient with me but I finally pushed him to far and he ended our relationship. The way I acted was so unlike me and I deeply regret my actions and it haunts me. I wish I could apologize to him and tell him it wasn’t his fault. I currently have been in a long term relationship and have 2 kids with my current partner and we’re extremely happy; he’s also been in a relationship and has had his first child (I don’t stalk him I’m just social media friends with his partner) but I’ve held on to this guilt all this time.

2023.06.08 20:06 odachi13 Selling leasehold flat, doubling ground rent nightmare

Offer accepted end of Jan for a purchase. It's combining mine and my partners properties to buy together. Her sale went through fairly straight forward although the BTL buyer's product runs out end of this month so we will have to complete her sale and she moves in with me to secure our purchase - the only thing is the huge gamble because my solicitor is answering questions like an MP where they can't give me a straight yes or no:
I have a doubling lease every 25 years, my buyer's lender is refusing based on this and has rejected the indemity policy we drafted and looking now to a deed of variation on the lease tracking RPI. We've been told, several times, the landlord is under no obligation to agree but my solicitor has gone from optimistically "I'll get this sorted" to "we might have to re-sell to another buy who's lender will accept the policy".
The response time from the landlord is horrific, they say 10-15 working days per email.
If we get a no on the deed of variation we've outright lost our purchase and are back at square one looking to buy and resell mine.
We are both quite stressed by this just looking for advice on next steps? Should my solicitor had this sorted earlier by now?

Hi,
About to have leg surgery that will immobilize me for months so this sale is coming at a perfect time. Can people help me which ones were just meh or maybe suggest something if I am missing something that is really good? I based it on other posts on reddit. I typically don't listen to non-fantasy books but willing to listen if it is a really good book. Thanks!

2023.06.08 20:05 sauvignonyum Vata experiences with "healthy" eating

It's so funny to me to look back on how I used to (try to) eat. I was a frequent gym-goer when I was younger, and would desperately try to eat a gym version of a healthy diet - tons of salads, extra-lean protein, minimal fat to save calories.
It NEVER worked for me. I could never get past a couple of weeks eating that way before before I caved and had a burger or something. That "gym" diet made me ravenous, bloated, constipated, achy, dehydrated, and miserable no matter how tasty and well-prepared I made the food (I'm not a bad cook).
Finding Ayurveda and learning how thoroughly vata-dominant I am has been a complete game changer. I always thought I was gross or just undisciplined for not being able to resist foods with fat, butter, oil, etc. I used to tell myself to stop using bloating and stomach pain as an "excuse" to avoid salads and mountains of raw stuff.
I cannot believe the incredible difference it's made to drastically reduce my raw food intake, allow myself salt and healthy fat, take warm meals, and eat thubgs that feel good to me. I don't have to choke down protein shakes and chicken breast. I don't have to shun oil. Food I can't digest is NOT healthy FOR ME. Context and constitution matter so much.
Anyway, just sharing my experience. Would love if anyone else wanted to chime in with their own.

2023.06.08 20:04 meddican1996 It strikes again

M 26, I’ve been battling with depression for years (since I was 12) my depression comes and Wanes somewhat, currently going through it really bad, I nearly ended it all last night but my wife woke up and came to check in just as I was about to enact my plan, saw what I was doing and stopped me from doing it. The kicker is my life is well. I have no reason to be depressed right now. By contrast to other people I’m living the good life. But for some reason. I just don’t want to wake up tomorrow. And I’m scared I might not if it carries on. I’m just really at my Whits end with it, im sick of battling everyday just to do basic human things. And living a life I don’t deserve. I don’t know what to do anymore
