Repost, Roommate Search
Hello, and sorry for the repost but I’m still searching!
My name is Jacob, and I’m looking for a roommate starting early March 2023. I’m currently in a 2 bedroom / 1 bathroom home located near 16th and 6th, about 2.5 miles from UF. The rent is currently set at $1095. I would say that each month the total expense (including utilities (GRU, Cox Internet)) is about $1400, so just around $700 each / month. As for what comes with the house there is washedryer included and a driveway along the side of the home, with additional street parking as well. Lawn care is also taken care of by the landlord, as well as the landlord is super responsive!
About me: I am 27, and a graduate student in the history department at UF. I tend to study a lot and stay relatively quiet. I’m relatively open about who you are, just as long as we seem to get along and we can respect each other’s boundaries. In terms of pets I currently do have a cat named Matcha who unfortunately does not get along with other cats. The landlord also doesn’t allow dogs, so no other pets are preferred.
If you’re interested I’m looking forward to hearing from you. Feel free to message me here!

2023.02.02 22:38 QueasyCounty4074 Owners not keeping dogs from jumping on people.

One thing I really hate, is when a dog jumps on me. Their feet are gross, they smell bad, and I do not want hair all over my clothes. Why do they act like it’s funny and it’s fine? One time after I had abdominal surgery, I went to my in laws and their dog jumped right on to me and nearly opened my fresh wounds. They knew I had just had surgery a couple days prior, I’m not sure why they wouldn’t be holding the dog when we walked in 🙃

2023.02.02 22:37 CartoonistOwn2767 Do not fear DPDR AND ACCEPT THE FEAR (my experience)

I’ve been suffering from DPDR for over a month now but I would say I have pretty much g nearly recovered, it has been a rough journey as it was my first time properly experiencing bad anxiety as I’m not usually an anxious person. However bad it may get, YOU ARE NOT CRAZY AND YOU ARE REAL. As much as it is hard to think positive you must accept that you are going to freak out and have anxious thoughts but it is a natural reaction as DPDR is an anxiety based condition, fuelled by THE FEAR OF HAVING DPDR.
This is all started after I had my second mushroom trip, all was well after tripping for about an hour until my friend offered me a bong (bad idea) which turned the trip from visual to psychological. I was constantly talking to myself in my head for hours and felt super anxious while my perception of the world was simultaneously ever changing. The trip was bad and a bit traumatic and since then the experience really freaked me out and suffered from DPDR quite bad.
I started taking Ashwaghanda for a bit to reduce the bad anxiety which kind of helped. The problem was that the DPDR was caused by the trauma of my bad trip which caused me to lose sense of reality. My brain was scarred I guess and unlike scars on skin that scab and heal over, mental scars are scarred thoughts. The thoughts (in my opinion) only heal once you have a better understanding of what happened and what caused the trauma. As overwhelming and anxious as this may seem, sometimes you have to think back as to what’s causing the DPDR for you understand and heal instead of overthinking. THIS CAN TAKE WEEKS OR MONTHS but please don’t panic, it’s your brain trying to understand what went on (in my case I had a really bad and had never experienced anything like that before). LIFE ISN’T A BED OF ROSES and sometimes we must deal with these hardships in life but you are not going insane.
Try not to overthink and keep yourself occupied. When you worry, your brain is like an office with 10,000 employees running round because of a fire alarm, the best way to calm them down isn’t to calm each employee individually but to turn off the fire alarm. So if you ever start to overthink or worry, just turn off that fire alarm and try to occupy yourself :)
I hope this helps some people as this can be very overwhelming. Try not to smoke too much weed during this as it can cause more temporary anxiety. MDMA can help with PTSD and worry too (not too much and use it as a tool, it can be a great healer).
TAKE EACH DAY AS IT COMES, it does get better eventually. Feel free to ask any questions :)

2023.02.02 22:36 Seeyouon_otherside The Perfect Predator - Chapter 11

Memory Transcription Subject: Captain Borala Whitestorm, Unan Separatist Command
I combed through the holopad’s database of the few supplies the Humans had spared for us, scratching behind my ear in nervous anticipation of what was soon to come. I was among the first non-Unan to be granted a spot in the military, although no one but my fellow rebels had any idea of that yet. I had been the commander-in-chief of the reserve militia for my homeworld of Scarborto-5 before Captain - now secretly Admiral - Gloss’a himself approached me for this… endeavor and now I was the captain of the Infinity. A thump made me turn to see the secretly promoted Specialist Ferill’a lugging a box of weapons into the storage room.
“Thank you, Ferril’a.”
“Of course, Captain Whitestorm.”
Before, many Unan had thought of her as a lesser being, whether they realized it or not. It was remarkable how quickly that had changed once she was put in a position of power. Unan culture was built on the respect of authority and it showed here. I realized that that was the Empresses’ game. They didn’t rule with fear, they did so with respect and adoration. Normally, that would be a good thing but they used those methods and warped them to brainwash their subjects and abuse their power.
I glanced at the bipedal reflection staring back at me from a well-polished wall. Striking green eyes with vertical pupils gazed from behind a muzzle covered in white fur. Sharp teeth suited for small game lined the inside of my mouth. I had dressed in a sharp, white suit and black tie that I would never have been able to afford before now. Most sapient creatures with fur had never needed to create clothes but Scarborto-5 was the definition of cold, even with the thick fur of my ancestors. Nowadays, clothing was just an integral part of Scarbotan society.
Ferril’a whipped her head around and focused on the second door. A few seconds later, the door hissed open to admit a Human and one of those… Venlil, they were called. The Human nodded to me and gave a wary glance to Ferril’a. The Venlil had an entirely different reaction however. His large ears pinned back against his head and he scrambled to hide behind the Human who let out a sigh.
What the hell? Did they bring a child on board or something? I racked my brain for an answer and remembered Admiral Gloss’a’s warning of the skittishness of most of the herbaceous species in and around Federation space. I whispered for Ferril’a to back up while I handled this.
“Hello, Human. Venlil. Welcome aboard the Infinity. I am Captain Borala Whitestorm.”
As was customary among my people, I made a point to make eye contact with the two as I greeted them. The Human returned my greeting and introduced himself as Alf Baldinotti and his partner as Mocit, but the Venlil shrank further back from my gaze. I also remembered that Federal species were instinctively fearful of predators to the point where they could and would completely abandon their dignity when in a stressful situation. I averted my eyes and took a few steps back so as not to further spook him.
“My apologies, Mocit. I didn’t mean to alarm you.”
“I-it’s okay, Captain. I’m just a little nervous,” he said, practically trembling from head to toe.
I decided to let him get used to me and Ferril’a and turned to Baldinotti.
“How can I help you?”
“We’ve been ordered to join you for a short time as part of the secret Acclimation Program. We were told we’d find you here.”
He handed me his own holopad. I looked over it and, taking out my translation glasses, read the documents pertaining to the Program. Both of their names, ranks, and visages dominated the tops of the files, with more information under, along with confirmation that they were assigned to us. Satisfied, I gave the holopad back and flipped the dark glasses up.
“Admiral Gloss’a had me set aside some rooms for you. Specialist Ferril’a here will show you to them.”
Mocit made a small squeak which prompted Baldinotti to attempt to calm him down.
“Listen, bud. We’re going to be around these guys for a while. We might as well get to the point of this program, right?”
“I-I know. It’s just the Unan-”
“It scares me too, but we’ll be fine.”
Ferril’a scoffed at the demeaning pronoun.
“Thank you. I feel so accepted here.”
I snapped my digits at her, a sign to be silent.
“Mocit, I will do my best to ensure that you are comfortable during your stay. No harm will befall you under any circumstances while you are here.”
“Th-thank you, Captain,” Mocit said.
The Venlil had calmed himself down for the most part already and only hesitated for a second when Baldinotti took him by the paw and led him to the waiting Unan. As the trio left, I made one final check of our new inventory before exiting as well and making my way to the bridge. I stepped inside and gazed at my crew. Before, this scene would have been a Unan listening to a bunch of other Unan go about their jobs. Now, I, a Scarbotan, was overlooking a plethora of species, from a few blind Unan, to the many armed Treeds, a couple aggressive Tamerro, and even a practically mythical scrawny Nirurian who’s species had been nearly exterminated during the Steel War and had yet to recover. The androids had taken advantage of their rather lascivious nature and infected them with a nanovirus that sterilized them. Due to their short lifespans, this quickly sent their race into a downward spiral. One of the first victims of the Technocracy’s mechanobiological weapons. I suspected the only reason the androids hadn’t made full use of biological weapons was their hatred of life. Or rather, Forger’s hatred of it. I doubted its creations had any emotions, or even sapience.
“Captain on deck!” Commander TedCit called when he noticed me.
Everyone snapped to attention and I waited for a few moments before ordering them back to their posts.
“We’ve completed undocking procedures with the United Nations cargo vessel, Captain Whitestorm.”
“Understood. Prepare to jump to FTL. Destination: Obox Aeriato.”
I felt the slight change of the engines as the ship shot off into the stars towards the future capital of the insurgency. The ship was built for Unan usage so the bridge was located near the center of the vessel, tucked safely away from danger. No need for viewports when you can’t view anything I suppose. I would have to get some screens installed to project what the hull cameras were seeing at some point.
I looked down at my holopad and checked the calendar application. One week. Things were moving into place smoothly. Queen Clee’an and her allies had been doing great work for the past week and a half, causing chaos and diverting the blame to the Empresses. The Federation had already pushed the Humans’ war efforts to the breaking point. All they had to do was hold on a little longer.

2023.02.02 22:36 skog-orangutan Decidual cast?

About 4-ish years ago I took birth control, called maexeni. I believe to have passed a decidual cast, it was as thick as my finger and around the size of my hand (slightly smaller?). I have never been so ill when my lining was passing. I was vomiting, had diarrhea, really painful cramps, and felt freezing, but I sweating, had a temperature, and nearly fainted.
Ever since this happened I've never taken birth control, never had a pregnancy scare, or been pregnant. Today I started my period at 8:30 this morning and by midday, I had all those symptoms above, but I've never passed anything, well yet anyway! By 3:30 I was fine, with little to no pain.
I was just wondering if anyone had anything similar happen. I usually never get cramps, probably have had 7 periods cramps since starting my period at 14 (and I'm 20 now). I'm just worried it could be something different and I feel I've done all the research I can. Doctors never really give me a chance and the only action they've ever taken is a blood test, to which I was told I wasn't pregnant! I'm just so confused as the only things that come up as reasons for it happening are BC or etopic pregnancy which neither is the cause.

2023.02.02 22:36 ThrowRA-insecurebf My boyfriend is much more attractive than me and my insecurity has made me treat him badly. How do I make things better?

Tldr - I'm (35M) dating someone who is younger and much more attractive than me (21M). I'm not treating him as well as I should because of my insecurity and I want to do better.
I met my bf online and we have been dating for around 6 months. It started as more of a physical relationship but grew from there. To put it bluntly, I'm below average looking and he is absolutely stunning. Not just in an Instagram type of way, he looks like a model and literally turns heads. When we started talking online I thought he must be catfishing me but if anything he looks better in real life than in photos.
Ever since we've been seeing each other I've been insecure. I assumed because of how he looked that he would be shallow and arrogant. Before I got to know him, I was happy to hook up with him but almost treated him like the enemy and talked badly about him to my friends because I assumed he was manipulating me and would ditch me for someone better. Hang-ups from being a nerdy, unpopular kid I suppose.
I realise now i was completely wrong about him. He's a very sweet person. He's thoughtful, kind and affectionate. He also genuinely cares about me and treats me very well. When I've met his friends he's been excited to show me off, rather than being ashamed which is what I imagined. He doesn't give me any reason to be insecure but I can't let go of it and I know I don't treat him nearly as well as I should.
Instead of being supportive and proud like he is to me, I bring him down. He has a learning disability and didn't finish school. He struggles with reading and writing. He has a job a lot of people look down on (he's a binman. I dont know what the term is in other countries - garbage collector I think). He works hard and supports himself and he's not unhappy or ashamed about his job but I've noticed myself bringing him down. I don't praise him for his many positive traits or even show him affection the way he does to me. It wasn't a conscious decision but I think I assumed someday he would notice how far out of my league he was and leave.
I know I need to treat him better. I recently made him feel so bad about himself he cried and kept apologising for being "stupid". I feel terrible. He's a wonderful person and he deserves better. How do I get out of this horrible pattern? Do I need to own up to what I've been doing?

2023.02.02 22:36 ElectronicFocus3882 First Time Posting - Overcoming my Anxiety with AP

Hi Everyone,
This is a throwaway account, and this is one of the first times I am posting on reddit, so I feel a little scared, but I wanted to share how much love I have for this community.
Here's a little backstory, I (22M) have been dealing with anxiety my entire life and have been on medications since early childhood, around two years ago I started developing nerve pain in my arm, which has translated over the years to nerve pain in all sorts of places like both arms, legs, and even my head. Over the past year I have developed frequent headaches and panic attacks even to the point where I cant' think properly. I saw every doctor possible and went to PT multiple times and they all said I was perfectly normal. I even increased the dosage on my anxiety medications to help cope with this pain with little luck. I felt like there was no way out of my pain and accepted it as defeat.
I wanted to find an escape, so I began researching how to lucid dream (not even finding this community yet). I have had previous experiences with lucid dreaming before, but only when I was younger. I followed the steps outlined which I believe was to meditate before sleeping and believe that will you lucid dream before falling asleep.
I started meditating and it has helped me so much. Over time, I got more lucid dreams (starting in November) and began hearing ringing in my ears and sometimes pulsing sensations when falling asleep. I began having dreams that involved talking to higher power powered beings like godly figures who were telling me to study number theory. Also, I began having hallucinations after I woke up like one of them was seeing two fairies drag a large shadow figure out of my closet into the corner of my room. I can share more of these stories on future posts if others want.
At first, I began telling my girlfriend and slowly telling my other friends because my dreams were so vivid that I felt like I could write and produce a whole movie trilogy based off my experiences. When I told one of my friends, I'll call him Matt (not his actual name) for this post, he told me about this community and how he has been able to AP which was shocking to me. So, I caved in and joined a month ago.
I followed the techniques listed in this post to try to AP https://www.reddit.com/AstralProjection/comments/ty0erg/how_to_astral_project_every_time/ (except the setting the alarm method). I have found another method which works better for me, which I could also post on once I get more frequent APs.
Over the past few months these dreams have become more and more frequent, and I started to realize that my dreams were scenarios involving my anxieties. I used them to help me cope with the trauma in my life past and present. The pain in my body was a coping mechanism for my anxiety.
This month, I had my FIRST AP!!!! I was able to see the bright light while being in sleep paralysis. I got up out of my bed and starting touching things until I was teleported to an intersection near a train station. This experience was the most fun and real encounter I have ever had in my life. I saw events happening in real time (like someone overseas getting ready, who I called after the experience to confirm the events). I also saw myself in the future, and all of the colors and sensations in this dream were unreal. It was like looking at a 8k resolution TV screen.
I have noticed that I am maturing more from these experiences, and that I am overcoming my pain and anxiety. I am beginning to notice pulses every day often when I should or shouldn't be doing something. I've come to believe in many things such as the idea in godly figures and the afterlife.
Over the past few months, I have started to decrease the dosage of the medication I am taking, since they were not helping me with my pain. And starting a few weeks ago I began noticing that I was getting pulses every time I took my nightly anxiety medications, which I think could be an indicator that I don't need them anymore. I am hoping to keep lowering them as my pain has decreased significantly from AP and meditation.
I definitely still have a lot of questions to ask regarding some of the hallucinations I see after waking up like those fairies carrying the shadow figure, an Egyptian god that I summoned by asking out for a godly figure, and an ant like creature who injects my brain with a liquid after waking up. But I know that I have only AP only a handful of times now and most of what I experience is just lucid dreams.
I hope my post wasn't too long, I wanted to convey everything that I felt. I really appreciate everything going on in this community. I would have thought I was going insane, and I am scared to tell my parents about these experiences too because they might think I am insane getting off my anxiety medications.
Please let me know if you want to hear more from me and feel free to DM me I would love to talk and learn from others too. I want to try to help others experience AP too.
tldr: AP has helped me overcome my anxiety by showing me the trauma and struggles with my life, matured me, and has given me a new outlook on life.

2023.02.02 22:35 triplebarrelxxx ever gotten stuck in a job?

Like you cannot leave no matter what. Joined a Lamar mission after an invite from a random, thought no big deal of it until the dude was fucking horrible. It was so incredibly obnoxious he would die immediately every time but no matter what it would NOT let me leave. I was pressing x over and over but he quick launched it nearly immediately every time. Had to switch to story and back to online to escape. What an absolutely asinine layout. You have to wait 12 seconds after hitting x to go back to online yet get throw in again and again immediately if the host hits r2

2023.02.02 22:35 LazyFurry0 Has anyone else noticed the striking similarities between the Nimitz case and the 1952 Washington DC case?

After watching videos on both incidents I couldn't help but notice that both events have similarities that seem to imply a connection. The similarities I noticed are:
A fleet of UFOs that have insane acceleration and odd behavior (quickly travelling to the karman line then coming back down).
Detected on radar and confirmed to be physical things.
The only description of the UFOs above Washington (no planes could get close enough to get a good look) were that they were "somewhat cylindrical," like the Nimitz' tic tac.
They actively reacted to interception (the ufos above Washington would accelerate away when fighter jets got too close).
Were active near areas related to national security (Nimitz ufos shadowed the fleet, Washington ufos would return to DC after fleeing from interception).
I haven't seen anyone else discussing this. Considering other sightings of ufo "fleets," this makes me think there is a fleet of ufos just roaming around the US. Am I

2023.02.02 22:35 CategoryOk8975 Gay and Interested Introvert, or No?

Introverts, please give me your opinion on this:
At work I met an introvert who works in another department but sometimes comes to my area for work purposes to talk to people in my department. I am a feminine gay male and he is a straight male. I used to think of him as the weird quiet guy who looks mean, especially since my co-workers would often tell me that they saw him looking at me with a serious expression on his face. Once or twice I caught him looking at me but I just dismissed him as a weirdo and went about my day. About a month ago, he approached a female co-worker about me needing to talk to me about a quality issue. I noticed him lurking behind me but ignored him. He assumed I was a woman and referred to me as “she and her” while asking about me. My co-worker had a good laugh over that telling me about it later. So, he finally approached me about the work issue and knowing he has the reputation of being blunt and rude, I gave him a hard time in a teasing manner. He was visibly nervous talking to me this first time and stumbled over his words with his hands shaking. I teased him about showing some manners and introducing himself properly first before getting down to business. After we discussed the quality issue I asked him about himself and he relaxed a bit. I realized he was actually kinda cute so I encouraged him to come talk to me whenever he was in my area.
After that, he would come over and chat with me fairly often, and tell me about his personal life, or lack of since he’s introverted and stays home on the computer for fun. I flirted with him and told him about myself and interests. Co-workers later said his mean look disappeared and he started walking around the office with a pep in his step while smiling. He always has sat by himself at lunch and has no real work friends. I decided one day about 3 weeks ago to come sit with him. He was startled at first, but then started smiling and opening up. From then on, I sat with him for lunch every day. He became very talkative with hand gestures and was loud and my co-workers all told me how he lit up when I was around. I began to think he might like me and could be closeted gay. After 2 weeks of lunches together he told me he had 2 girlfriends in the past, one lasted 2 weeks and the other 2 months. He is 24. I never mentioned to him that I am gay since everyone knows at work and I’m open. Around this time we exchanged phone numbers and began spending some lunch breaks in his car so he could vape. He would tell me about things in his life and I would rub his shoulders or squeeze his arm or pat his back. He never flinched or told me not to touch him. One day in his car, I saw a bulge in his pants that I had not seen before. It looked like he might have a large penis but I am respectful, so did not comment on it or try to make a move on him, but he was off and on very nervous and had trouble looking at me directly in the eyes. A random co-worker asked me if we were dating because she saw our close body language – he had started walking side by side with me, would lean into my space when near me, and would whisper in my ear a lot. I told her no just friends but that I liked him. A different co-worker approached him and flat out told him that I thought he was adorable and really liked him. I was mad at her at first but it worked to my advantage because she told me he turned red and had a wide smile. Thinking that he could be into me, I suggested he and I hang out and he was happy to make plans. Last week I he gave me a ride home (I was having car trouble), I invited him inside and he came in but seemed very uneasy. I wasn’t sure what was going on with him but tried to make him at ease. He stood in a corner of my living room and wouldn’t sit down on the sofa. After a few minutes of awkward conversation he suddenly left. I walked him out and he was so nervous he walked to the wrong car and tried to get into it.
The next day was our “date.” He came into my apartment and we talked for a few minutes, the whole time he wouldn’t look me in the face but was looking down and to the side at the floor. It was very confusing for me but I gave him a hug and he awkwardly hugged me back. I took him to my favorite bagrill wanting to share that with him and he was talkative on the way, but once we sat down at the restaurant everything went down hill. He was visibly nervous, the conversation was spotty and very awkward, I got annoyed and I’m sure it showed. After he finished eating he dropped a bombshell on me telling me that he was bored and would rather be at home on his computer doing some coding. I looked at him confused and feeling insulted. He continued saying that he did not find me interesting and had no interest in hanging out with me again, but that he would continue talking to me at work. I confirmed for him that I was gay and he claimed that he was unsure about my sexuality. I told him I thought he was bi or possibly in the closet. He told me he was straight and emphasized how he had sex once with the woman from the 2 week relationship. Naturally, I lost my temper, cussed him out, and grabbed his phone like I was going to toss it (I wasn’t). He told me to give him back his phone or he will call the police. I was so angry and confused at his sudden change that I dropped his phone into the nearest garbage. While he was digging in the trash for his phone I paid the bill. He found his phone and walked out of the restaurant. I totally disappeared and I couldn’t find him. So I left without him. I was his ride so couldn’t understand why he would ditch me at the restaurant. It has been a week now and he and I are not on speaking terms. I believe he has blocked my phone number as well. I tried to approach him at work to talk to him but he looked extremely angry and he now avoids me.
Introverts, please interpret this man’s behavior for me. I’m totally confused about what happened. Is he gay and interested but in the closet? Did he just see me as a friend? Why did he flip on me and say cruel things?

2023.02.02 22:35 mariacha_static Developing Sources

I am running into the first of many walls I foresaw in this project I am doing in college; developing sources. People just don't want to talk to me about my topic and story right now, whether the interest isn't there, or the time to do so, I don't know. Or I'm going about it wrong.
For some background, I'm working on a project about unions, and trying to build a long-form story about the people behind some of the newly unionized workplaces in my area.
I'm not in j-school, and I'm sure I've missed out on some fundamentals by not taking journalism classes. Is there some magic I'm missing to developing sources? Does anyone have any advice?

2023.02.02 22:35 Delirium658 Possible Glitching?

So I'm on my second playthrough of Sekiro, going for 100%'ing all achievements. I'm nearly there, with basically just the various endings left. I vowed to not use any form of cheesing. Got to the Demon of Hatred, only to encounter it glitching in various ways, thus making what already is a difficult boss seem nearly impossible. By glitching I mean he does attacks that aren't suppose to trigger at close range, him not responding to properly executed attacks, and him bypassing properly executed defense moves. Very often when I execute a defense move, it decides to blow me away anyway. For example, when he does the attack where he goes up in the air and I use the Suzaku's Lotus Umbrella. I'm aware that if you counter attack with the umbrella before the fire beneath him goes away, you'll end up getting hit and taking damage. But often when I counter after the flames have dissipated, I'll end up still getting hit anyway. I've watched so many videos of people fighting him and none of the things that are happening to me happen in anyone else's video. I'm really confused and figure it must be glitched. I'm getting rather frustrated and wonder if any of you encountered this with the Demon of Hatred or any other boss, and what you did to get around it. I'm not looking for any suggestions that would mean cheesing the boss though. Also, side note, I do not have the Demon Bell triggered.
Have any of you encountered this and is there something you did to fix it?

2023.02.02 22:34 catsambience Hey just wanted to share a half a page of my first book attempt

Not looking for spell check but love pointers of the flow, I really need to get better with the English language but this is all learning experience for me, I been thinking about writing actual books and short stories so here is a tiny bit of my "book" but also working on a totally different story I wanna publish as short weekly "chapters" out of a science fiction short story I am writing
But right now i am just taking baby steps
So here is beginning of my "detective book" and excuse spelling mistakes and such because this is pretty raw still.
...
A brightly lit city street filled with glowing neon figures flashing their limps and offering anything and everything a lonely heart would desire, the buildings first floors are nearly all bars and restaurants with or without the nudity, while the upper floor often house questionable business in various run down office spaces only contactable from the intercom with barely half of the name tags filled out and even some crossed out
this building like most on the street was an old worn down “halfscraper” but with the first floor nearly being entirely a facet of a strip joint and its questionable wall art and right next to the club entrees was a lobby of the above residents with its the tell-tale two door and an intercom with some marked and unmarked name tags but his was because in the waaayyy down-town rent is cheap and business is good
With effort pulls shut the window close, he lights a cigarette sitting in his tiny office, a single desk facing a wood panel door with top half a glass panel with the name Kirk Douglas Private Detective in large fonts across lit up by the lights on the hallway, on his desk a single desktop lamp with green glass shades lighting up the surface of his desk
He slumps down in a large leather chair and pulls himself toward the desk
opening one of the drawers and pulling out a small flask with brown liquid inside, a cheaply printed label spelling out "Heavens hill" , he puts his finger around the cap getting ready to twist it off for a bit of afternoon tea, he pauses for a second as the unmistakable foot steps of heels draws close to his door followed by a faint knock and a fainter voice asking
hello is someone home?” and in a growl-y voice Kirk answers back “Come in its open” and into the office steps a beautiful blond women in high heels and a reviling red dress with the lush red lips and a incredible well formed figure
For a second he hesitated as he is in ave of her everything but fumble to put back the flask of cheapest of cheap and instead drops it on the floor in front of the open drawer with a loud clunk as it hits the floor, both staring at each other without saying a word until her lips part slightly and a shrill voice of a confused and scared old lady sounds out “HAROLD I dont know where I am!” echoes out inside his head
elderly white haired man to tore himself up from his nap as he bawled out a muffled scream of inaudible words, woken up by the usual nightmares following him into his sleep or slumber in the sofa
Now sitting upright in this dusty house on an old sofa stained and torn, the afternoon sun is moving across the sky and is shining straight through the living room window, and piercing into his life while lighting up the dust and tiny strands of hair the air, while he pulls himself up from sofa and stands confused and sweaty in the middle of the room, he glances around his living room still grasping his own reality, “its got to be past two” he notes as he looks towards the TV with its VCR blinking back at him “00:00”
he stumbles towards the kitchen for a glass of water as his throat feels like cardboard, the kitchen isn't messy but rather organized except for a large pile of newspapers and letters filling the kitchen nook, the room like every other room in the house is dusty, like someone hasn't lived here for years
the sink contains a clean plate with a knife and fork placed beside and a glass of water, he picks it up and fills it half way with water from the facet while standing over the sink, holds it up in chest level and for a moment stares straight into the glass before pushing it up against his lips and throwing back his head with an open mouth and quickly dispersing of the content like its a some kind of fowl medicine.
With effort he gets dressed in his usual slightly stained pants, slightly stained shirt and mostly unstained jacket non have gotten any care in the last years
This sun never stops” grunts the elderly gentleman as he exits his little one storie brick house pushing the door behind him shut with both hands and some effort as an edge of the door rubs against the door frame
...
Dont care now about spelling but need to learn to use more commas, and structure sentences better But I like to get as much text out as possible and then go back and work on (spelling and all), this is the tiny start of a story and I am trying to be cheese in the start, as its a dream about being a detective in those typical black and white movies
But I love to hear people thoughts on how it reads, this community seams to be really supportive and I am having this "I am tiny baby, look what I drew" moment with you folks

2023.02.02 22:34 No_Priority_566 AITA for asking friends for the money that was LOANED??

Am i in the wrong or are they? So my husband and I our friends with this other couple Steven and Natalie. They had asked us to come over and help them move furniture and then we could have dinner with them. Natalie said she wanted to go out and have dinner somewhere expensive and have drinks and we told them flat out we couldn’t afford that. Well Steven and my husband went to run an errand and Natalie asked me to ride with her to meet this lady from marketplace. All on the other side of town, and our car was at their house. Well her mom was with us and she chose a restaurant 5 minutes from where we were. Steven didn’t wanna drive all the way back to their house then drive all the way back to the restaurant. We had loaned him money for a suit he had needed(around 130) a few weeks before. Natalie’s mom said she had us. Well I then a few weeks later I mention the suit money just asking about it. Natalie was like we paid for y’all’s dinner. Um for one our dinner was nowhere near 130, we didn’t even get alcohol, I got chicken tenders and my husbands meal was messed up so they comped his dinner. For two we were basically forced to go after telling them we didn’t have the money multiple times. They got mad.
AITA?

2023.02.02 22:34 zoey1919 Planned Parenthood not refilling my estrogen after 1 test on top of my life spiraling out of control

I’ve been running low on estrogen and I missed my first appointment for the month and had to wait almost another month for the next appointment and by then I was almost out of my injection I missed a week and did the next week but I’m suspose to do my injection on sundays but life has been so Costco recently I can’t remember days or important things like when I need to go to my classes I know I forgot my injection on Sunday, but can’t remember if I did take it Monday tuesdays or Wednesday but unlikely for Wednesday I try my best to get my injection asap whenever I miss, anyway on Thursday was the day I got my labs done, when they came back high pp started grilling me if I do my injections right and that I shouldn’t even need a refill cause they did one back in October but I have my needles and syringes from when I was on .5 deposit estrodial and .5 is clearly marked, there’s just lines in between I try my best to get it where it looks like it’s at 2.5 but since I forget so much sometimes I go to the .3 line I know that’s wrong and I only did it when I was late or forgot a dose but every time I used to big gage needle to extract theres always a bit left over in the like “cap” part that screws on the syringe, I can’t figure out how to get that bit without also putting air into the syringe so I just think of it as spillage and though my prescription was accounting for that cause I’ve always had leftover hrt when I get my next refill till the last two times I did the math and out of a maximum 20 possible doses with zero spillage, I can only account for 15, my bottle is empty now but they say I should still have it and started grilling me over than, they’re telling me my levels are too high and refusing to refill my estrogen unless I wait two weeks and do another test, and if that still comes back high they’re force me to wait another two weeks, I even told them I’m pretty sure I accidentally dosed a lot closer to the test date then I should have but they told me I can take it now but if I do and it’s still high, doesn’t matter, another two weeks, I did the test on Thursday, they didn’t get the results back till Monday, I’m suspose to inject on Sunday so the moment they called me I was already behind one dose, idk what to do anymore but wait but each day is killing me I have ocd and adhd and my ocd has gotten like 600% worse I can’t stop thinking about what’s going to happen, I already had to go without for almost a whole month last year because I couldn’t remember appointments to get my refill and i feel like barely survived that and now I’m feeling like that again while I have college going on and a unrequested roommate who’s staying over cause her last “girlfriend” nearly abused her to death and been a really stressful situation and led to me forgetting my original dose time. I feel like I’m drowning rn and idk how to either calm down and wait or figure out another move in the meantime

2023.02.02 22:34 Direcircumstances1 BGE net metering buyback cost for solar production

Trying to see if anyone in Baltimore City or surrounding counties that have solar panels and product more than they use. Can anyone confirm the price per kWh that BGE us credit/paying on the bills? I’m trying to confirm that. Tried calling BGE they keep bouncing me around. I’m trying to help a retired elderly couple that are extremely limited on their monthly income and with gas and electric being so high they are looking at the option to keep bills constant. I’m doing a lot of calculations for them but need to have any confirmation from People who are receiving credits, producing more, or at least seeing what BGE is paying per produced kWh.
