2023.03.22 13:59 MrForeshadowing Unable to Progress - Loading Bug

I've been having difficulties with the Echoes system. I've been progressing an Offline Marksman and have got to level 68 and am completing the level 70 area "Blood, Frost and Death". I have full stability across the bar at the top.
However the issue i'm experiencing is an infinite load time for the first of the quest echoes "Wengari Battleground", i've experienced this previously on one of the earlier island type levels, however i dropped the graphics quality and verified the integrity of the cache and it eventually booted up. This time however no matter the adjustments it takes me to the loading screen, and loads forever.

Occasionally if i try to leave and force quit, i'm taken to the finishing area where quest rewards and the such like should be, however i have no UI whatsoever, some of the Stability has been removed, so it's like i've loaded into and then left the level, which implys to me that it IS loading in the background however it just does not change my view to the view of the level, just the loading screen going round and round over and over.

I've Tried looking online for solutions to this, however most loading bugs are attributed to Online play and queue times. This is neither. It's also worth noting that i got this game a few years ago and leveled a character to 96 with no such issues at the time, so something has changed in the past few years, my computer itself has only gotten better, so i'd be suprised if there was an issue with the hardware.

Has anyone else experienced similar issues?

2023.03.22 13:50 spinspinspinach 53 [M4F] #NYC - wear your college sweatshirt to lunch or dinner - #CT or #Westchester

I’m looking for a sexy college gal who wants some fun with an older gentleman. Wear your college sweatshirt or t-shirt when we meet in the restaurant, bar or hotel lobby. Maybe we’ll look like a parent’s weekend father & daughter. Maybe it’ll look like a professor & a student, or god forbid, a dirty old perv and his naughty friend. We can do it away from our home towns and your campus.
When we’re done we can go somewhere more private for some adult fun.
I’m open on age (as long as you are over 18+), race, build, relationship status, etc. Just have an open mind and a lusty heart.

2023.03.22 13:37 RufusDelgado I (34F) feel like I can't trust my partner (31M) anymore.

To preface this I have to explain something that happened before we got together. My partner, let's call him Donell. His best friend, lets call him Lowell is my ex boyfriend from about 6 to 7 years ago. He left me for his current gf, let's call her Lauren. One night when they were all drunk Lauren decides to cheat on Lowell with Donell. They kept it a secret for a year and were never planning on telling him. Lowell ends up finding out from a mutual friend. These 3 all work together and Lowell is Donells boss so he fires him once he finds out.
A month after this Donell and I start seeing each other through a mutual friend hook up. Let me add that me and Lowell are cool with each other and have been for a while. His gf Lauren seems to always have some issue with me because she is incredibly insecure.
There have been multiple incidents that have happened since Donell and I have been in a relationship. Lowell rehired Donell so now they all 3 work together again as weird as that is...
They ended up having a holiday party at their place of business which is a restaurant. I was invited as my boyfriends plus one. Every time I see Lauren I am very nice to her and try to be as friendly as possible and it's usually me and her that end up hanging out. At one point we were outside with a group of people and she starts screaming about how she hasn't had sex in over a month and how its because she is fat. I try to make her feel better by saying Lowell has always been with bigger girls it's ok blah blah blah.. even though I know Lowell is not attracted to her anymore since Donell told me he said this to him in the past. Later, Lowell and I were having a conversation in the group about my dad. Just generic stuff about how he is doing. It was about 4 am and I wanted to leave. I tell my bf this numerous times and instead he keeps telling me to wait while he consoles a very drunk Lauren who is hunched over at the bar while he is rubbing her back. Eventually we leave and when we get home he tells me she was upset and uncomfortable me and Lowell were having a conversation about my dad and he agreed with her.
So the next morning I get angry and text Lowell about what Donell said to me and I say how that's pretty unfair she is upset and jealous over having a conversation about my dad when she cheated on him with my bf. I then tell him in a joking but light manner to bang her already because she was screaming about not getting sex in front of everyone last night.
I work for a company that has weed products. Donell gave Lauren a bottle of distillate vial that I gave him for free for helping him with a project. She has recently asked him how much it is so she can get some. This is the second or third time this has happened where she refuses to ask me about product we carry and only asks him when I would be the one getting it. So I told him he can tell her to ask me directly if she wants to know.
Week later passes and he is obviously trying to hide he is texting her. I look over randomly while we are in bed and I see her name and he blacks out his screen immediately. I turn away and wait until he starts texting her again. I ask "so who are you textin?" He says Lauren and tells me its about asking for the distillate price and how he told her I said she needs to ask me. He told me she said damn that sucks. I ask repeatedly what was said and what he said and he tells me how he told her the situation is childish and she should just talk to me. I say why dont you just show me what was said because I feel like you are probably taking her side and making her feel like she is in the right. It just felt like he was hiding something. And he refuses to show me and slowly is changing what he said he was texting her. Eventually he does show me and I see how he has lied about everything. He says I've been acting weird about it and I refuse to tell him how much it is until she asks me herself. He instead of calling the situation childish, he calls me childish and dumb twice to her. She says why would she talk to me ever when I've been mean to her (me being mean was telling Lowell how she got upset I was talking with him about my dad and then telling him to have sex with her). And just now I know I shouldnt have but I looked through his phone a bit. Every time Lauren and Lowell argue she texts him long paragraphs about it. She calls him late at night. She seems like his back up boyfriend... I found more things where he is talking shit about me to her and taking her side.
Am I wrong to be upset about this? I feel like he has been fake the whole time to me. He lies about having my back and always takes her side. Like he wants to be the good guy to both of us but instead talks shit about both of us to each other. I feel like things are different now and I feel different now about how I feel about him. I dont trust him, he lies all the time small and big. It hurts that he works with someone that talks shit about me and manipulates him into having these opinions. She acts like the victim when she was the one who cheated. I don't understand why this is happening and I wish they would just not work together. Not sure how to move forward.
Tldr - boyfriend is talking shit with his friend about me and taking her side and lying about it. Important to note the friend is the gf of my ex bf from 7 years ago. Our bfs are best friends and she cheated on him with my bf before we started going out.

2023.03.22 13:35 bluefishredsea Facebook post and working at a restaurant.

I have a regular group. They’re in all of the time.
I live and work in the Deep South. My political opinions are completely different from most of the people around here.
The regulars were in last night for a birthday party. One of them told me he had to talk to me about something. I told him go ahead. His wife immediately told him to shut up and was chewing him out. After they left, I asked his best friend, which is my number 1 regular and my best work friend, what the guy wanted. He told me it was over a Facebook post I had made about Ron DeSantis. I made the post six days ago. My number 1 told me that I work with the public and have to be careful. I told him that I was off the clock when I posted. I’m just an employee at this below basic restaurant/bar. I didn’t use any names in my post. I asked my number 1 why the guy didn’t comment on my post because he’s had six days to do so but he waits to come at me while I’m on the clock. I also told my number 1 that anytime they’re talking about politics, I turn and walk away. My number 1 agreed with me.
So, those that aren’t bound my in house rules about social media post: should one generally not post about anything on social media that would “offend” a guest?

2023.03.22 13:28 anonomouse__ Is anyone else having a REALLY HARD TIME finding a service job?

I (26F) have always worked in restaurants to keep myself afloat while I am in school. I recently went back to school for a postgraduate and so I had a serving job at a bar since July. I got laid off because of "shortage of work" (and saw them hiring 3 weeks later SIDE EYE). So I've been on the job hunt since beginning of Feb.
Here is the thing.... I have over 5 years of serving experience, and I always go in person to give my resume. Before the pandemic I have gotten at least an interview at every single place I applied to, not to toot my own horn but I had experience, I was friendly and I think coming in person really made me stand out from other applicants.
That being said, Ive been applying to jobs for the past 1.5 months and NOTHING. I have not gotten one interview. Ive been using the same resume if anything it has even more experience now. I am applying to bars, restaurants, breakfast places, everywhere.
I recently applied to a breakfast place on College and the manager took my resume as said they would contact me... but they didn't and I saw their job posting on indeed again... which now I cant apply for because I already did, even though the employer reposted.
So amid sky rocketing rent and grocery prices, is anyone having an increasingly difficult time finding a service job?

2023.03.22 13:16 StJimmyNeutron Traveling with ARFID

I’ve been in Korea and Japan for the past two weeks and I’ve lost weight because most foods here are “fear” foods. I brought an 18-count box of Cliff bars with me because I knew I’d have some trouble, but the ED voice has been especially loud and has pretty much dominated my trip.
I made do by finding Italian, American, or Spanish restaurants (my safe foods) but this trip has opened my eyes to the fact that some countries likely won’t have “safe” options if I were to continue traveling (which I will do, because wanderlust is essentially my middle name).
I say this for my own catharsis and to remind myself to work closely with my therapist and dietitian before any future trips, and do food exposures for the local cuisine. I’m definitely bummed that I wasn’t able to lean into the culture as much because of my ED, and am hoping that won’t be the case going forward. So yeah... just an accountability post!

2023.03.22 12:24 Consistent-Dog-8972 Naples - love at first sight

Naples - love at first sight
Naples is a city rich in culture and cuisine - making it one of the most captivating cities in Italy. While chaotic, noisy and at times overwhelming, Naples also provides an enthralling experience that will leave you with lasting impressions.

This vast city was once a seedy mafia capital and now blends an unforgiving atmosphere with an inspiring blend of old and new. There's so much to explore in this vibrant metropolis - so take your time exploring!

Dating in Naples

Naples is a stunning beach-filled city that offers plenty of exciting activities. Whether you're passionate about Roman exhibits or simply want to take in some breathtaking sunsets, Naples truly has it all.
Dating in Naples can be a breeze if you know where to look and what to do. As the city draws many tourists each year, there will be plenty of single women around who are eager to connect with someone new.

You can meet women in Naples by simply walking around the city, or using dating apps like Tinder (the most popular). Lovoo is another option worth trying as well.
Dating in Naples doesn't have to be complicated, but you should still be upfront and strive to make an impression from the get-go. Don't just chat up any girl you find; give her time and space to like you before asking her out on anything - some might not even be ready yet for physical contact yet!

Picking up girls in Naples

If you're searching for a hot woman, Naples is the place to be. Here, you can find all types of single ladies from petite blondes to stunning brunettes.
If a girl appears interested in you, start conversing and inviting her out - but be direct. Don't waste an hour with someone who only wants to chat without any genuine interest in you.

Another excellent method for meeting women is online dating apps. Popular ones in Southern Europe include Tinder and Lovoo, both of which provide this option.
Couchsurfing can also be a cost-effective option in Naples, as many female hosts are willing to provide accommodation at no or low cost compared to what hotels typically charge. Plus, most of these hosts speak English!

Getting laid in Naples

Naples is one of the best places in the world for getting laid with gorgeous women. Hookup culture is prevalent and one night stands are quite commonplace here.
To get laid in Naples, try going to a bar or club and engaging with women. This can be done by sharing about your interests and hobbies, or even just having casual conversations.

In Naples, it's possible to get laid on the street; however, this activity tends to be dirty and there are various groups of street hookers who operate here. Some charge EUR5 for a BJ, while others prefer paying at least EUR30.
Another successful way to meet people in Naples is through online dating sites. Loveawake, with its large membership base and over ten years in business, is one such option.

Dating spots in Naples

Naples, a sex-friendly city, is full of attractive women seeking mutually beneficial connections. Some even qualify as sugar babies - open and willing to do anything for someone willing to pay their bills.
Dating in Naples doesn't have to be a struggle if you know how to approach girls and be more flirtatious than usual. Tinder and Happn are two popular dating apps, but Lovoo could also work if you don't mind being less serious.

Another great place to meet girls in Naples are the bars and clubs. Here you'll find everything from jazz clubs to hipster bars with a relaxed vibe.
Chiaia, the area behind Villa Comunale, is one of the best spots for a night out. It's filled with narrow vicoli filled with restaurants offering all types of cuisines.

2023.03.22 12:11 corabirthdayTA AITA for not celebrating my girlfriends birthday?

This happened a couple days ago and we are fighting about it and I just want to know if i'm being unreasonable.
So i've been dating Cora (my girlfriend, 25) for a couple years now and she just had her birthday. A week out, I asked her not to make any plans for her birthday obviously stating that I had made evening plans for us (dinner at this restaurant she's been talking about for ages, dessert and then a drive to go stargazing). I had been hinting around it all week to Cora. I also asked if her friends wanted to celebrate with her. They told me at the time they had "not figured anything out yet" so I assumed they weren't doing anything and then made my plans.
The day of Cora's birthday comes and she leaves in the afternoon. I thought no big deal, she was probably having some birthday time to herself. She hadn't posted on her story or anything so I didn't think anything of it. 6pm rolls around, I'd messaged and called her and still nothing so I checked her location because she normally replies very quick (we have each others for safety reasons) and she was at one of her friends houses. So I asked her friend if she'd seen my girlfriend because I had a birthday surprise set up for her.
Turns out that her friends did make plans for her birthday and didn’t tell me because they thought I would "ruin the surprise" and "wanted it to be a complete secret" They had lunch and then made more plans to go out to some bars and celebrate. They then invited me but I declined out of politeness and not wanting to crash their plans since she sees her friends rarely outside of work. I messaged Cora to have a good night with her friends and I'll see her when I get home (I had a cake waiting for her and thought nothing of it and hung with a couple of my friends).
Cora came home and was angry I turned down her friends invitation and she wanted to see me with all of her friends on her birthday too. I said it wasn't a big deal and that I saw her in the morning and when she got home anyway. I also said that the invite felt like an afterthought when she had all the time during the day to invite me and she didn't. Am I being an asshole here?

2023.03.22 11:58 kiwi_sapphic I am 23 years old, make $67,000, live in Philly, work as a Project Coordinator, and this week I celebrated my birthday in Paris.

I did a money diary this exact week last year about signing the offer letter for the company I work at now. I ended up getting a 5K COL adjustment (62k > 67k) once I moved to Philly. I expressed in the previous journal that I was worried about my taxes since I moved states and work for an NYC company from PA. As many suggested in the comments, it ended up being pretty simple (I used FreeTaxUSA).
Retirement Balance - $31,400. A mix of Roth IRA, 401(k), and traditional brokerage.
Equity - N/A
Savings account balance - $11,600 in Emergency Funds; $7,500 in a HYSA that I saved up during college and will use to pay off my student loans when payments resume this summer. Because of this, I consider myself debt free.
Checking account balance - $900; I had a $600 sinking fund for my food/shopping/entertainment in Paris, but I got $300 in cash birthday gifts.
Credit card debt (and how you accumulated it) - $0; I pay my cards off regularly.
Student loan debt - $7,500 for a Political Science and Social Policy Degree with a minor in English. I got a full-tuition scholarship, but had small gaps in aid during my first two years because my school required underclassmen to have on-campus housing and a meal plan.

Income Progression: I’ve been at this job 9 months, make $67k, and it’s great. The people, the work, the benefits. It’s my first post-college, salaried position. I have pretty much no complaints about it and am hoping to get a merit raise during our summer evaluations.
Main Job Monthly Take Home: $3,400 (paid semi-monthly)
$1200/mo in total taxes (fed, state, local, SSI/med); $1000/mo to 401(k); Employer pays 100% of health premiums.
No other income currently, no parental contributions, etc.

SECTION THREE: EXPENSES (my portions, I live with a roommate)
Rent - $750/mo. Renewing in May; hoping it stays the same or doesn’t increase dramatically
Retirement/Investment contribution - $540/mo to Roth IRA (401(k) contributions detailed in the Income section).
Savings contribution - $460/mo to sinking funds, $200/mo to General Savings/Emergency Fund
Debt payments - None besides regular payments to my cards
Donations - $80/mo to whatever feels right
Food - ~$500/mo ($300 groceries + <$200 dining out)
Electric - $75/mo
Wifi - $65/mo
Cellphone - $300/yr (Mint Mobile)
Renter’s Insurance - $100/yr
Subscriptions - $8/mo; $7 for Apple Music and $1 for iCloud Storage
Annual Subscriptions - $380/yr; $190 for Credit Card Annual Fees; $165 for ScentBird Subscription; $25 for Google Storage
Gym Membership - $10/mo; $50/yr for Annual Membership Fee
I started on a health journey last June (lost 50+ lbs!). Back then, I was in search of any kind of fitness that I would enjoy and actually go to. I ended up getting a $190/mo membership (2 classes/wk) to a RUMBLE (HIIT Boxing) studio and went 2x a week from June - Nov. In December, I bought a flat-fee holiday package that made my classes cheaper ($19/cls vs $23/cls) and more flexible, so I froze my subscription and got a 30 class package.
In January, I started strength training 4x/wk at Planet Fitness and went down to 1x/week at RUMBLE. I love my current routine, but PF and RUMBLE are both a 35 min walk from my house, and I go to the gym early in the morning. So, I’m considering joining the closer (<10 min walk), but more expensive ($72/mo) gym soon.
I’m still slowly burning through the RUMBLE holiday package and plan to cancel my subscription. I’m hoping they do a summer sale so I can buy another class package. If not, I’ll just buy classes ad hoc after I run out.
No pet, car, or therapy expenses currently.

The flight and accommodations for this flight were booked in September after getting an email from Going (formerly Scott’s Cheap Flights) about $500 tickets to Paris the exact weekend of my birthday. I stayed in a Sonder that I also booked back in September for about $480. I bought a $30, 5 GB international eSIM from Airalo. I was able to post on social media, send iMessages, and check my bank accounts with no problems and no extra data needed.

Day 1
Today is payday and the beginning of my week off. I clear my credit cards, invest my Roth deposit, and go to the gym.
After the gym, I pick up last minute toiletries ($45.35) and plane snacks ($21.48). I end up on a wild goose chase looking for a Universal Adapter ($34.39), so I get McDonald's (I wanted a Shamrock Shake) while I’m out ($9.15 - this feels expensive for McDonald's?)
My mom gives me a call around 8pm and asks if I’ve checked my bank account. Today was payday, so I had, but not since early that morning. She gifted me $200! After, I spend three hours retwisting my locs and go to bed around midnight.
Day 1 Spend - $108.37

Day 2
Today is Sims 4 Expansion Pack (and flight to Paris) day! I can’t install the game until 1PM ET. Lame.I do one last check to ensure I have everything I need, transfer my Paris Sinking Fund ($600) into my checking account, and then play the Sims to pass the time. At 4, I take the Regional Rail to the airport.
I breeze through TSA and read Another Country by James Baldwin until boarding begins. Upon boarding, I’m stopped and informed that my carry-on is “too big.” They were clearly picking people at random to move their bags because as the woman walked down the jet bridge with my bag, she rolled it past a man who had the exact same suitcase as me in another color. Annoying.
They don’t give me a chance to take out my laptop and snacks, this is my first time traveling internationally, I triple checked the sizing requirements, so this stressed me out. I was terrified of my bag getting lost. I vent to my best friend about the bag situation; she helps me calm down. Once we’re airborne, I spend the next 6 hours rotating between reading, watching Wakanda Forever, and listening to music.
Day 2 Spend - $0

Day 3 (my birthday!)
We land in Dublin at 8am, and I activate my international eSIM. I see my older brother gifted me $100 via Cash App. Even though it was just a quick layover, being in Ireland on St. Patrick’s Day made me happy. The Irish were teeming with happiness and excitement. I board my second flight and land in Paris at 1pm, finally am reunited with my bag, and get to the section of town I’m staying in via train ($12.18).
While I wait for a friend to arrive on the train from London, I try French McDonalds per the recommendation of my best friend ($14.95 - seriously, why the hell is McDonalds so expensive?)
Friend arrives and we explore Paris! We then stop at a bakery, I grab a pain au chocolat ($1.60) and slip into a bar nearby. My friend lets everyone know it’s my birthday, and they buy us lots of rounds of shots and drinks. My friend closes the tab for the couple of drinks we actually ordered, and we head to a club that’s having a St. Patrick’s Day party around the corner.
I later try to redeem my Starbucks birthday item, but the barista gently lets me know it’s not valid in France. However, he throws in a free refresher and my friend buys me a blueberry muffin. We head back to the hotel so I can freshen up and change into my birthday dress. We take a nap and head back out for the night on the train ($8.96 RT for 2). We have dinner at a delicious restaurant, which my friend pays for.
Our last stop of the night is an Afro-Caribbean spot that has great music and friendly staff. I tell the bartender it’s my birthday and ask for a drink recommendation. He makes some spicy concoction in a gold bowl with peppers. It’s quite delicious but is strong and makes my nose run! The staff gifts me at least two more shots, and I decide to call it quits on alcohol for the night after that. We dance and laugh the night away with the friendly staff, and I pick up the tab before we leave ($27.81).
Day 3 Spend - $65.50

Day 4
My friend has been teasing a surprise and finally reveals it’s Disneyland! I laugh and realize I hadn’t disclosed the rest of my itinerary — I have a Disneyland reservation for Monday (after my friends went home)! However, I booked a non-park hopper ticket for Walt Disney Studios, so I’m excited to be able to experience them both thanks to my friend!
We had a late, drunk night last night so we started the day a bit late. Grabbed a quick brunch ($6.74) and head to Chessy via the train ($19.68). We got Premier Access (skip the line/lightning lane) for a handful of rides ($79.15), I bought some Stitch merch ($21.39), and we got ice cream ($5.35).
After a few hours at Disney, we head back to Paris to meet up with one of my friends from college who also lives in London. He’s a hyperextrovert and is ready to hit the town immediately. We wanted to go to the Eiffel Tower, but missed the last bus and grabbed dinner nearby ($89.96). My friend from high school started feeling a bit sick, so she went back to the hotel and my college buddy and I spend the night bar hopping, dancing, chatting, and eating until 3am ($37.44).
Day 4 Spend - $259.71

Day 5
Both friends head back to London today but at different times. I start the day a bit late after saying goodbye to my high school friend.
My college friend and I grab breakfast at a nearby restaurant ($41.18). After that, we head out to explore an area of the city near the train station so it’s easy for him to board the 5pm train. We grab some pastries and a baguette ($11.66) and set out to explore. We saw the lock bridge, Arc de Triomphe, took goofy photos, visited the Notre Dame restoration exhibit, and danced alongside a drum parade.
On the walk back to my room, I check my email to see I missed the Eiffel Tower climbing tour I scheduled back in September. I go back to the room, let my phone charge, and pay a fee to reschedule the tour ($10.70). I head out to see the Eiffel and other tourists sites via a Sundown Seine river cruise ($8.99 for 4 bus tickets).
After a few hours, I’m beat and head back to the Sonder. I got a Poke Bowl from a French/Hawaiian/Sushi fusion place we passed by last night and some chicken wings ($22.89). I spend the rest of the night relaxing.
Day 5 Spend - $95.42

Day 6
I really want to sleep in, but the Climbing tour doesn’t allow cancellations within 24 hours and charge no-shows. I head out around 9:30 am. Despite being tired and annoyed, the tour was great. I have a lunch Steakhouse reservation at 2:30pm at Disney, so I’m sort of in a rush and happy the tour ends right on time at 12:30. I hop on the train ($10.70 RT tickets) and make it to Disneyland at 1:30 pm.
With an hour before my reservation, I stop into a bunch of stores and buy merch ($70.60). I make my way to The Steakhouse for lunch ($37.44). I am stuffed, so I walk a couple laps around Walt Disney Studios to get a lay of the land, take photos, and walk off lunch before indulging in some shows and rides.
A couple hours go by and I grab some dessert ($4.28) and rent a portable charger ($4.28). I wanted to ride Crush’s Coaster before my dinner reservation, but it had a crazy wait time and premier access sold out for the day, so I buy premier access for and ride Avenger’s Flight Force instead ($12.84), return the portable charger, and head to dinner at Bistrot Chez Remy ($58.83).
I stay until 9:30 pm for the light show, have snacks ($9.63), then head back to the hotel to shower, pack, and sleep.
Day 6 Spend - $208.60

Day 7
I have a protein bar for breakfast, check out at 10am, and grab a final ticket ($12.29) to the airport. I start to feel lightheaded and try to drink some water, but it doesn’t help much. So, I get McDonalds ($8.91) before boarding my flight and feel a lot better. I grab a Kinder ($1.72) from a nearby store because I’d never tried one. Amazing!
I am excited to get home and get back into my normal meal prep and exercise routine. I make it back to Philly at 7pm. I take a shower and go straight to bed.
Day 7 Spend - $22.71

Week Total - $760.52
Food + Drink - $406.74
Fun / Entertainment - $194.68 (shopping, tour reschedule, premier lanes)
Home + Health - $34.39 (universal adapter)
Clothes + Beauty - $45.35 (last minute toiletries)
Transport - $72.80
Other - $4.28 (portable charger rental)

Lastly, reflect on your diary!
While I’d never spend close to this in a normal week, celebrating my birthday in a way I enjoy is very important to me. I’m excited to travel more in the future.
I feel like I spent too much money on individual transport tickets; I should’ve brought the booklet of 10. But $73 for a bunch of days is still pretty cheap. I had a sinking fund of $600 originally, but the cash gifts from my mom and brother increased it to $900.
Overall, Paris was cheaper than I expected. I was worried $600 wouldn’t be enough. I picked up the tab a lot of places since there wasn’t an easy way for us to split the bill in multiple currencies (USD, pounds, euros), and I’m trying to hit the minimum spend on a new credit card. Had I been more willing to figure out bill splitting, I probably could've stayed under $600.
Relatedly - this trip inspired me to revisit my goal of becoming fully fluent in Spanish. French-speakers were visibly irritated when I spoke English (which I wasn’t upset about and expected). I did practice some French (beyond the basics like bonjour and merci) with my sister before the trip, but it always came out sounding like Spanish. So, after the first day, I resorted to starting conversations in Spanish.
If they spoke Spanish, great! However, many were caught off guard and didn’t speak Spanish, so I would then ask, in Spanish, if they spoke English, then converse in English — which made them noticeably nicer. Definitely gonna work on brushing up my Spanish and work towards fluency. I eventually want to learn French and ASL, too.

2023.03.22 11:38 DiscombobulatedLion4 Best bar with event space for a party

Hi everyone! I am organising an after party after a sports competition and looking to hire out a part of a bar / restaurant - but I'm struggling to find anywhere good, and have never been to Berlin so it's making it difficult!
We are expecting around 30 people, and would want drinks and finger food / buffet (ideally pizza etc that people can stand around and eat), and it would be on a Sunday night from around 8/9pm. Ideally somewhere close to Mauerpark.
Does anyone have any recommendations!? Thanks!

2023.03.22 11:33 GeometryDash_Gamer TD Rewatch Thoughts and Commentary: THE GRAND FINALE!


Well…it’s official. After a ton of hours of watching and analyzing, 48 posts, linking many moments from YouTube, 2764 individual rankings determined, various calculations, and (most importantly) countless walls of text expressing my opinions…I AM FINALLY DONE WITH THIS SERIES!🥳 And it only took a bit more than a year and 7 months since my very first post regarding this🤪. Though with that being said, I would like to wrap this all up with one nice long final wall of text. It’s worth noting, this is especially long and probably extremely wordy. So I put headers on this post so y’all can skip around. But just to start, I’d like to give a runthrough of my whole experience doing this
Note: Yes, I took various inspiration from u/twofacedflyer and his finale post during the super dope series he did…more than two years ago now (Jesus Christ time flies)

Tangent on this series

Now if you know me pretty well, you’ll likely know almost ever since I got into TD, I really developed this obsession with trying to rank stuff, especially TD characters. I even remember the first days of me trying to make my own tier list ranking every character and had Noah and Cody as my hindsight top 2 (and no, I didn’t ship Noco at the time). However, my opinions have changed a lot throughout, and while I still love both characters, they don’t appeal to me quite as much as before. At this point, I’ve pretty much updated my character tier lists almost countless times. In fact, it even got to a point where I milked the fuck out of tier list posts before. There was even a period of time where I would post an update to the sub every week or two, and chances are I might’ve posted even more frequently if it wasn’t for the tier list trend rule, LOL. And for whatever reason, even to this day, I tend to start getting obsessive and nitpicky about trying to order each character and pinpoint my feelings on them as accurately as possible. There’s a reason why even before I started this series, I had a very nuanced continuous number system to further showcase exactly where each character falls on each category of my ranking system. Though nonetheless, this leads me to the one day where something just sparked within me. Essentially, I was like “Huh, I wonder what my opinions on each TD character would be if I average my opinion on them out episode by episode?”. I figured it would definitely be easier if I laid all of this out on Google Sheets. I originally just planned to try to calculate each average for each character based on a not as specific number scale based on my rankings with them. But after a bit of time, I figured the one way to really make this accurate is by actually making the number scale far more continuous than discrete. And then overtime, I also ran into other factors
There’s no doubt a lot of this series was done very spontaneously. Afterall, it didn’t even start with TDI originally. I wanted to try this whole ranking chart for TDA, and I don’t think I even planned on writing a review about the season either. But as time went by, I just figured “Hey, if I’m rewatching these seasons and trying to make something where I have to look into each episode enough to pinpoint my thoughts on each character there, why not express a bunch of thoughts I have while rewatching?”. And alas, as well as my initial review and rankings for TDA, my rewatch commentary episode by episode was born. After rewatching TDA, I then went back to TDI since at the time, I thought TDA and TDI were the seasons I wanted to rewatch the most. And that’s where I started just writing out various thoughts I had and things I picked up on or saw with more clarity as I rewatched the episodes. Though even then, I didn’t go through each episode that thoroughly at the time. In fact, my TDI commentary was literally only three parts. I did actually plan to make it just two, but then I divided the second part into two parts after some people told me it was too long. Then once TDA came, I divided my commentary into a bit more parts than before and started going through the episodes a bit more thoroughly. It wasn’t till WT and ROTI where I really started making extensive comments on a handful of moments throughout each episode. However, it got to a point where I felt like I was bringing up way too many minor moments that ‘stuck out’ to me in my commentary, and there was a certain point where I realized not much people will care about looking through every minor moment I found funny. So after my AS commentary rolled around (where I really hyped it up as a dark period of time filled with anger and ranting💀), I incorporated this feature where I separately linked moments from YouTube I deemed as more minor that I found amusing, just labeling the link as the name of the character(s) involved in said moment. However, even doing that proved to be too much for me eventually as RR rolled around, and I realized it was taking forever to be done with each episode. I feel like sometimes, I really fell under the trap of being excessively ‘detail-oriented’ and bringing up almost every moment I found even slightly amusing. Thankfully during the 5th part of my RR post, I decided to get rid of the feature of linking minor moments all together after I realized probably no one even bothers going through them anyways. And I just mainly kept commentary down to more major points regarding each episode, although I still took notes on various minor stuff, just for me to reference. I’m glad to say it worked very well, and I was able to power through each episode quite faster and pump out vast majority of the series before my recent winter break was over
Then there’s also the fact I took a huge break from this series for several months on end. As some of you might remember, around this time about a year and a month ago, after finishing up All-Stars, I loosely admitted I had to get my shit together in real life, namely with school. Though even aside from that, I think I was just heavily burned out from doing the series. In fact, it took WAY longer than I anticipated to find the motivation to start it up again. Hell, I even tried to start it back up during the summer, but ironically, I didn’t do so until sometime in fall. Ironically, when I took this extensive break from the series, I was finished with AS and only had two more seasons to go. But given just how burned out I was, it still took me more than a year to completely wrap things up. Though the most important part is, I FINALLY GOT IT DONE! And despite this, I would like to think I didn’t necessarily sacrifice quality a whole lot (despite the lack of planning behind this), even if it’s partially because this series has dragged out even longer than Derrie at this point LOL. If I have to be honest though, this certainly took a surprising amount of work. Like I kinda knew it would be a lot, but I didn’t expect it to be as tedious as it was at times. Even pumping out the very first post (my initial TDA review) was quite a drag and ended up taking longer than I wanted it too, and I remember being relieved when it was done. And that feeling just amplified after every season I tackled. And I can say after releasing this post, there is no other time I feel this as strongly as now. Oh yeah and on a side note, I’m happy to say I’m actually doing marginally better in real life now than before (and now that this series is done, I think I can especially be at a peace of mind and focus even more on other stuff)
With all of this in mind, do I regret doing this series? All things considered, not really. As I said, it got extremely tedious at times, and I definitely got very burned out. And I even admitted during my PI review that I had various doubts or anxious thoughts regarding this series (though despite this still decided to pull through). But I think as of getting this series done, this has solidified my opinions far more, and hopefully I won’t make a bunch of tier list updates in the future💀. On top of this, I did have quite a bit of fun typing out my thoughts at times, especially the rants. That and it was certainly satisfying seeing people appreciate my commentary a lot, especially with my huge SMS tirade I dedicated one single part for XD. With that being said, do I ever plan on doing this again? Absolutely not. Although it’s not necessarily a bad idea to take some notes when you are doing a rewatch if you want to remember more stuff, or actually have a stronger opinion on various things (especially good for when you want to geek out about TD with others, or debate with someone about something). However, I don’t think making a ranking chart is super necessary. Ultimately, I’d say only do this if you have a ton of free time and are super obsessed with ranking stuff, otherwise you will probably end up like me and be burned out from doing this series from time to time. In fact, I think easily the biggest weakness of this series (I reckon a lot of you probably agree with this as well) is how inconsistent I was 'momentum-wise' as far as getting it done. I feel like this would’ve been super great to pump out earlier on while the pandemic was still going. But as it stands, I happened to start this series towards the end of the summer of 2021 back when I was going into my freshman year of college, and unfortunately did not have as much time to pump these posts out super fast. I also have to admit, I do sometimes think maybe if I made it a review series, I wouldn’t have to worry as much about trying to ‘adjust’ and could comment on a lot of specific moments. But I feel like doing episode reviews would be kind of more redundant at this point, and doing it the way I did made things somewhat more efficient. With that being said, I could do an episode review series for once the new seasons come out👀. Aside from this, I realize I probably could’ve also tried to make things more interesting by adding some gimmicks to my commentary, similar to Ultranatic Productions or u/twofacedflyer and u/WOTWUZTHAT back in their respective series’ they did (or ongoing series in Ultranatic’s case). But bigger picture-wise, I’m pretty satisfied with how this series turned out
Overall this was a fun but incredibly long ride. In case I haven’t made it clear enough, I’m honestly extremely relieved to be done with this. But on top of this, I’m also incredibly grateful to everyone who has followed this series. Like I said, I didn’t even expect this to become a full-blown series, but I truly appreciate everyone who actually cared enough to read through my ramblings and comment on them. But with that in mind, there are certain people who has supported me through this series I would especially like to give a shout-out to


Before I bring up the people who involved themselves in this series, I’d like to give a shout-out to two YouTubers in particular who I took some inspiration from time to time with my commentary, namely Ultranatic Productions and penguinz0 (or as a lot of you might know him as MoistCr1TiKaL), both of who are absolute legends. For starters, there’s Ultranatic Productions (AKA u/Ultranatic on Reddit) who is doing his own series of reviewing every TD episodes, except this time far more thoroughly and intricately compared to me. I mean, I thought doing this series was a lot, relatively speaking. But I can only imagine the work Ultranatic has to do what he does, from not only writing out a script where he articulates all his thoughts and points, but then also records himself saying everything he has to say and then even has to do a bunch of editing afterwards, along with various gimmicks he incorporates in his videos. I’d imagine it’s a ton of work, and Ultranatic’s dedication to this is honestly pretty admirable. On top of this, he brings a ton of really cool points, has a lot of unique and nuanced takes, and incorporates a lot of great gags. Next up is penguinz0, who doesn’t talk about TD, but is a commentary YouTuber I’ve grown to absolutely love. I really love his dry wit, along with his ability to absolutely roast terrible people on the internet. I think quite a bit of my commentary style was inspired by him, and I even took a few pages out of Ultranatic here and there
As for people who participated in this series I’d like to thank
Now, every one of you involved are great. But I think these two following people have contributed the most
Aside from them, I’d also like to give a couple honorable mentions to u/twofacedflyer and u/WOTWUZTHAT, both of which have done similar series before mine that consisted of talking about characters. And while I didn’t totally plan for this to become a full-on series, I think they partially inspired me for when it did become a full series if that makes sense. And as I said, the format of this post is pretty inspired by u/twofacedflyer in various ways. And I’ll admit even in general, there were times I referred back to posts of his series whenever I got lost on how exactly to structure various posts of mine (including this one). As of now, they aren’t active on this sub anymore for varying reasons, but I had a real blast with both of them during their time here
And lastly, I’d like to thank this whole subreddit in general. It’s generally filled with a lot of open-minded and accepting people who are genuinely caring and willing to acknowledge other people as they express their thoughts. Now granted, I’m aware Reddit is far from perfect and is a lot of times not usually held in high regard (although it isn’t as problematic as say, Twitter or TikTok). But I think this subreddit is really proof that there is good to Reddit. And the support I got throughout this series is proof of that
And that officially wraps up the very gushy part of this post🤪

Thoughts on Total Drama

If you’ve followed my series or even generally read through enough things I’ve pumped out throughout my time on Reddit, you’ll likely know I’ve typed many rants on various facets of this show. Though despite this…it’s still quite good overall, and maybe even great. Granted, it has a lot of flaws and even some writing decisions that will forever baffle me (one of the most noteworthy examples being the winners losing their money at the end in ironically the widely regarded two best seasons). And I remember binge-watching 6teen a long while back thinking it was overall a lot more clean written than TD, which I think kind of gives the idea that there are probably many better handled shows overall. But at the same time, TD has way too many awesome highs for me to not like it. And outside of the two infamous seasons (AS and PI), I can safely say the positives will always outweigh the negatives. And if anything, even the various flaws the show has just makes it more fun to talk about sometimes. IDK what it is, but I low-key find ranting on things a guilty pleasure. I’ve said this before, but there’s a reason whenever I talk elaborately about something negatively, my walls of text will usually be longer than when I actually write about something positive. And there’s just a certain type of satisfaction I get from trying to find various ways to express and intricately word my distaste for stuff I don’t like, especially when it’s stuff that makes me passionately angry. So IG in a way…I have to give a thank you to aspects of the show like YRBKM, SMS, the Gwent breakup aftermath, CHFIL Sierra, Feral Zeke, MacArthur, Amy, the joke of the winner losing their money or especially PI Chris💀
Now for a runthrough on what I think of every season, Island was a solid start to the show and overall a great season. It isn’t without its problems such as various inconsistent or weird moments, the main antagonist being rather lackluster (mainly in the gameplay department), or especially Gwen’s treatment as a finalist and the fact it’s one of the two seasons with easily one of the absolute worst “jokes” in the entire series. But despite this, it still has many great things about it, and a generally chill atmosphere
Next came Action which was also good overall, but has quite more noteworthy flaws, especially the aftermath of the Gwent fallout, along with Beth’s character-assassinating romance plot. However, it is the best season as far as challenges go, and I happen to prefer the antagonist over the one in TDI…well, at least once Courtney comes into the picture (we don’t talk about Justin). The finalist pairs are also one of the weaker ones overall, but even then, their interactions and the finale itself actually worked surprisingly well, despite the very ending also leaving a fair amount to be desired
Then came World Tour, which at best was a very epic and adventurous change of pace from the first two seasons. And it even implemented musicals as a unique feature of this season (which included a lot of bangers albeit a few flops), and on a side note, introduced this truly amazing piece of background music I really wish there was an extended version of that I could download and listen to for hours on end😭. The antagonist is easily the best in the entire series, both gameplay and character-wise. And the finalist choices were practically perfect narratively, despite both having some more glaring flaws gameplay-wise here and there. And the finale was shaping up to be absolutely amazing…but unfortunately ended on a really sour note. Aside from this, there are a few other controversial plots and writing decisions I don’t like. However, one thing I especially respect about WT is how high the stakes were. This season really feels like you had to actually play the game in order to get far, rather that just being nice. In fact, this might just be one of the best and most intriguing seasons for those who especially care more about the strategic aspect of TD. Overall, I feel like WT is one of those seasons that just went especially ballsy with its writing and actually did really well with the execution at times. Though at the same time, there are multiple areas really lacking in execution and some especially terrible lows. Despite this, it is overall a better season than TDA, but there had yet to be a season that topped the quality of Island
That is until Revenge of the Island came along. After spending 3 seasons getting to know the first generation cast, we then got introduced to a set of new characters, and a really great one at that. Personally, I think this is easily the peak of the series. Generally speaking, pretty much almost every character is utilized really well (barring Staci). And it also has a lot of especially epic moments along with an adventurous feel. The pacing is also really good, and there are many great jokes. Scott as an antagonist is also amazing, even though he also isn't without flaws and doesn't quite top Alejandro. On top of this, I think this season does a great job of balancing both drama and friendships, and handling both really well. There are various conflicts that are surprisingly complex, engaging, or also entertaining. But mixed with that are still a lot of wholesome and interactions. And even generally speaking, it just seemed to be able to handle and balance most aspects of the show really well. That and it also has easily my two favorite episodes in the entire series. Really, ROTI is a masterpiece all-around, and I could gush about it all day if I wanted
Though unfortunately, the very season after ROTI did NOT hold up to its quality, as the worst season coincidentally happened right after the best season😭. I know I’m not being brave when I call this the worst season. There’s just so many bad writing decisions, and it also has easily two of my least favorite episodes in the franchise, which funny enough both happen to be responsible for screwing over two very prominent characters who had a lot of development potential. And on that topic, it does that a lot. It feels like at least half of the cast loses a ton of brain-cells during their elimination episode…or in various other episodes outside of that too. And part of it ties to what has to be easily my least favorite antagonist yet, who also happens to be tied with probably ‘objectively’ (I used this word loosely tho) one of the worst protagonists in the series as well (Mike vs. Mal). And yeah, on that topic, the main plot is also just atrocious and ends on one of the worst notes possible. But even despite this, it still has its good moments and enough positives for me to not hate it. There are a handful of characters I actually like, and I’d say Zoey was still good this season despite her flaws, and not a bad finalist. Though generally speaking, it’s just such a huge disappointment in many ways and easily the lowest point of the franchise
After this disappointing trainwreck came Pahkitew Island, where the writers decided to go completely balls to the wall with the cartoonish aspects of the show. I will say, it is better than AS overall, but…only because it has better highs (including my absolute favorite character in the series). On the contrary, I think it actually has worse lows. Funny enough, it just so happens that this season has some of the highest highs of all time, but also some of the absolute lowest lows, including my two absolute least favorite season-by-season character appearances in the entire series. It especially doesn’t help that while LCAOBP isn’t my least favorite episode overall, it ends ‘regular’ Total Drama in one of the worst ways possible
Thankfully though, the one spin-off that came after this happened to actually be quite good, and definitely a big step up from the previous two seasons. Not only did it start new with the game format, but it also started fresh in terms of writing-quality. Granted, even then it is far from perfect. There are quite a few glaring flaws for me as far as characters go, especially including the existence of my least favorite protagonist in the entire series (even worse than AS Mike). But even then, the season had the advantage of screen-time being distributed especially more evenly, to where even if some characters sucked, it wasn’t always enough to drag the episode down. In fact, aside from ROTI, it’s the one season that has no full-on bad episodes for me. And the fact I find the host vastly superior and that it’s responsible for the existence of my TD waifu, both especially give it an edge. Overall, I think this season was quite refreshing and satisfying after the previous two seasons, and I’m proud to call it yet another higher point of TD and quite a good end to the franchise
And then lastly there’s Total Dramarama, although I haven’t watched it in a fat minute and don’t plan on covering it as of this series. Though from what I remember from watching it a long while back, I actually liked it for the most part. There were some occasional moments I really didn’t like, and the Chef torture could sometimes go too far for my liking. But for the most part, it’s pretty entertaining and has some plots I really like. All I’ll say is my favorite episode is definitely “Having the Timeout of our Lives”, with my least favorite being “Total Eclipse of the Fart” like many others
So overall, Total Drama is a pretty great and iconic series despite its flaws, and I am proud to call myself a fan of the show. I mean, there’s no other reason I would be this dedicated to talking about it. It would be awkward and a waste of time if I looked into and discussed this show for so long, only for the end result to be that I don’t like it (and I know YFWD would absolutely decimate me LMFAO). Fresh TV, you are awesome, and I really look forward to the upcoming new seasons

Final Show Rankings

Now it’s time for my general ratings regarding Total Drama, and this time on a scale of 100. I should also say, I’ve always had a hard time fully deciding my season rankings, so I figured I’d make a more intricate attempt to gauge my exact opinions on each season. And through this, I made a ranking table, where I rate multiple different facets of the show from 0 to 100. Now it’s worth noting I made more specific calculations for the episodes and character portion, and some rougher calculations for the romance and finalists categories. I also based the finale category mainly on my ranking of each episode of said finale. And the rest are more rough estimates. And on a last note, I stuck with the 147 season-by-season character incarnations when determining the scores for the characters category (so no background characters, cameos, or Mike’s personalities other than Mal). So these are likely not 100% accurate, but considering I’m mainly just using this to try to order my seasons, I don’t think it’s too big of a deal. Not to mention the scores are rounded by 0.5 increments
Season ranking chart
NGL, the Reddit table feature is kind of pain to use, so instead, I opted to just put the table in another Google Doc for me to link here, along with an explanation of how it works
Just a couple additional factors I included for seasons (adds or subtracts 35 on the 700 scale)

And now, here are my top and bottom 30 episode by episode appearances for each character throughout the series and no im not dedicated enough to make a ranking of EVERY episode by episode appearance. It’s worth noting, some of the scores are the exact same. Usually to determine which goes higher, I decided by which appearance had more relevance that episode. Though there are even some cases where multiple appearances have both the exact same score and relevance. In that case, I just went with my gut feeling on which I prefer ever-so-slightly

And that wraps up the long wall of text along with all my mini rankings. I figured this post would be too long if I included all of this just in one post, so I decided to make this 2 parts. Next part is the real deal, where I show off a few different ranking lists, and then finally my character rankings (you can find it via this link)

2023.03.22 11:10 lewhugh Homophobic customer gets cut off in spectacular fashion.

Middle of Mother’s Day (UK). We’re a family oriented restaurant but also have a top-class bar. We get a group of 4 rock up to the bartop. My Senior Bartender (let’s call her Jane) tells me they were in the other night and were dicks. Didn’t get cut off or anything, just rude. So she goes over to them says hi and drops a bev napkin in front of all of them. Now it’s key to note; Jane is a big girl, buzzed hair and pretty butch. Yes, she is gay. Now she’s with these customers while the 2 girls look at the menu the one guy whispers to the other (but audibly enough for me and Jane to hear) “that’s a dyke for sure!” Jane says nothing and takes there order. Makes 2 cocktails for the girls, pours a pint for the one guy and then puts a glass of water in front of the other guy. He starts to question it and she says “that’s what your drinking tonight, and your gonna like it. Cause if not this dyke is gonna drag you outside” He began to argue back saying he was joking, didn’t mean to offend, etc. but still asking for a drink. So she slid the other guys beer back to the bar side. And said “look what you’ve done now. Now your friend can’t drink because of you. Are you gonna deprive the girls of their drinks too?” He picked begrudgingly picked up his water and started to sulk over to one of the empty tables. But Jane called him back first and said “you need to close out your tab!” The girls are already at the table. So he comes back and she slaps the bill down. 2x Pornstar Martinis and 2x Budweisers. He says we never had those beers. And she looks at him, leans on the bartop so she’s face to face with him and says “do you want me to call a manager over?” He just slaps £30 down on the bar and walks off.

2023.03.22 10:43 Obvious_Risk_4224 Social life at Rochester, NY

I've heard a lot about the harsh winter and the small town feel. If someone can share their experiences about outdoor activities, the restaurant and bar scene and if public transport is good enough to travel around. Any other tips about areas to avoid renting houses in or generally avoid would also be appreciated!

2023.03.22 08:57 TryTwiceAsHard Visiting Ensenada looking for a nice restaurant close to port.

I'll have my family with me, which includes 2 teen boys. One is old enough to drink in Ensenada. We're going ATV riding but after id love to be dropped off at a restaurant that is more family friendly than hardcore party bar. We're open to Mexican or steakhouse style. No seafood specific restaurants, no Asian. People in my family are way too picky. Any suggestions? Somewhere we can sit as a family and recount our day and watch our oldest drink his first beer!
