Education plays a vital role in the development. It is extremely important not only for individual but also for society. Education does not mean only to get a high degree but it creates a difference between wild and civilized person. Well established and coordinated education system is able to produce educated and trained persons. A student is lying at the core of the education system. Student performance is an effective gauge to measure the credibility of any education system in any country. See Samples Of Free Undergraduate Research Projects For Students
Self esteem has a meaningful role in one’s performance. Self confident student show better result than low confident students. Self esteem as an influential contributor to academic success, productive behavior and mental and physical health in children. Support, may be moral or somewhat like financial, appreciation, praise, reward etc, is one of the factors that may enhance the student's grade in the class. Supportive environment have a substantial effect on student performance. Also, teacher attitude has a greater effect on the student performance.
Self-esteem is a life skill that is highly embraced by all societies at all stages of development. It is the process by which individuals rate themselves, acquire knowledge, skills and attitudes to enable them participate effectively in the society. Self-esteem education somehow determines the level of prosperity, welfare and security of people. It is the cornerstone of economic, social development and a principle means of improving the welfare of individuals. Students need to accept and value themselves to do well in their academic work.
Students’ academic performance is use of one’s aptitude in studying and making accomplishments and achievements in terms transfer of knowledge, communication skills negotiation skills and good grades and marks in examinations. However, Poor academic performance leads to students’ frustration and this can lead to negative self-esteem among learners which can later impact negatively on the economy of a country. It also causes psychological suffering to parents if they have to pay more money to take their children to other schools.
Education is activated through the cognitive, psychomotor and the affective domain. The affective domain in enhanced through life skills education, self-esteem being one of the skills. The development of life skills is a life-long process that starts in early childhood and continues throughout one’s life. Life skills education enables students to develop positive attitude towards self and others by transforming knowledge, skills and values into action .This enhances students’ abilities to make effective decisions and relate amicably with others in society. The three major categories of life skills: skills of knowing and living with oneself that include self-awareness, self-esteem, coping with emotions and coping with stress .There is the skill of knowing and living with others and that of making effective decisions. Where life skills education is well developed and practiced it can enhance the well being of society and promote positive outlook and healthy behavior among learners. ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE
Academic performance is the measurement of student achievement across various academic subjects. Teachers and education officials typically measure achievement using classroom performance, graduation rates, and results from standardized tests.
The term ‘academic performance’ has been described as the scholastic standing of a student at a given moment. It refers to how an individual is able to demonstrate his or her intellectual abilities. This scholastic standing could be explained as the grades obtained in a course or groups of courses taken. Performance is a measure of output and that the main outputs in education are expressed in terms of learning, that is, changes in knowledge, skills and attitudes of individuals as a result of their experiences within the school's system. Thus, in determining academic performance, grades could serve as prediction measures and as criterion measures.
Academic performance therefore is largely identified by a range of statistical indicators. Performance is the level of attainment of a person in an examination, that is, how an individual is able to demonstrate his or her abilities in an examination. Hence, Performance has been regarded as a measure of educational output. SELF ESTEEM
Self-esteem is the value an individual places on themselves relative to others. It is also what one believes and feels about themselves. It can also mean accepting one’s weaknesses as well as strengths, and that one feels that they deserve the respect from others. With self-esteem, one learns to build on strengths and to compensate for weaknesses. A positive self-esteem is crucial in maintaining academic performance among students.
A person’s self-esteem can be perceived as negative or positive depending on how one evaluates their worth. The value that one attaches to self leads to the level of self-esteem that they have. As a result, this level of self-esteem can influence ones performance of tasks in various situations in life. The two extremes of self-esteem are not desirable. Positive self-esteem implies that, comparing ones value to others, the individuals find themselves superior. This can lead to behaviors like arrogance, selfishness and difficult in coping with others. Such behavior may influence an individual’s academic performance.
Self-esteem has become a household word. Teachers, parents, therapists, and others have focused efforts on boosting self-esteem, on the assumption that positive self-esteem will cause many positive outcomes and benefits. Appraisal of the effects of self-esteem is complicated by several factors. Because many people with positive self-esteem exaggerate their successes and good traits, however, we emphasize objective measures of outcomes. Positive self-esteem is also a heterogeneous category, encompassing people who frankly accept their good qualities along with narcissistic, defensive, and conceited individuals. It is noted that the modest correlations between self-esteem and school performance has indicated that positive self-esteem leads to good academic performance. Therefore, Positive self-esteem is the result of good academic performance. Efforts to boost the self-esteem of students have been shown to improve academic performance and many times have been productive. Job performance in adults is sometimes related to self-esteem, although the correlations vary widely, and the direction of causality has not been established. Occupational success may boost self-esteem rather than the reverse. This means that good academic performance boosts self-esteem and not the vice versa.
Positive self-esteem makes people more willing to speak up in groups and to criticize the group's approach. Leadership does not stem directly from self-esteem, but self-esteem may have indirect effects. Relative to people with negative self-esteem, those with positive self-esteem show stronger in- group favoritism which may increase prejudice and discrimination. Therefore, neither high nor negative self-esteem is a direct cause of violence. Narcissism leads to increased aggression in retaliation for wounded pride. Negative self-esteem may contribute to externalizing behavior and delinquency, although some studies have found that there are no effects or that the effect of self-esteem vanishes when other variables are controlled. The highest and lowest rates of cheating and bullying are found in different subcategories of positive self-esteem. ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE AND SELF ESTEEM: A NEXUS
Self-esteem is always attributed to best performances in tasks and at work place. Self value may strengthen the learners’ relationship with the facilitator. This implies that the students may benefit more from the teacher due to the free atmosphere. It also reduces problems like; truancy, absenteeism, drug and substance abuse and teenage pregnancies that are known to cause poor performances. Character building emanate from self-esteem. Students with self-esteem are able to manage and use their leisure time well. Moreover, they are able to choose good and reliable friends who can help in boosting their academic performance. Self-esteem is ones emotional evaluation of worth or judgment of one’s self attitude. Students with positive self-esteem are good at negotiation skills with others. They respect others opinion and listen to others views. They also have many friends for they embrace non-violent behavior in solving conflicts.
Students with a high level of self esteem tend to relate well with teachers and this can assist them make consultations in case of challenges in academic work as well as tackle assignments in good time. They take failure in examinations as a stepping stone to success. This implies that they work harder to improve whenever they do not perform well. When criticized by colleagues and teachers they take the criticisms positively. They have good interpersonal relationships. They excel in academic performance and recognize the role played by others in the same. When they deviate in discipline they are easily corrected. As students they dress well and decently always and not many teachers who raise complaints about their dressing code. Their academic discussions are harmonious and always labor to live in peace with colleagues. They are not overconfident about their knowledge and intelligence. The result of this is improvement in academic performance. CONCLUSION
In conclusion, self-esteem plays a critical role in academic activities of students; there is need for school administration to focus on life skills education to boost the performance of students in academic related activities.
Self esteem has a meaningful role in one’s performance. Self confident student shows better result than low confident students. Self esteem as an influential contributor to academic success, productive behavior and mental and physical health in children. Support, may be moral or somewhat like financial, appreciation, praise, reward etc, is one of the factors that may enhance the student's grade in the class. Supportive environment have a substantial effect on student performance. Also, teacher attitude has a greater effect on the student performance.

2023.05.28 15:02 illuminix123 I ruined my ex's self-esteem, happiness, and everything during 3.5 years of relationship. I don't know what to do anymore.
I really need to vent and get this off my chest cause it's a lot and mind you, I am aware of my shortcomings and have been seeking professional help. I understand this is not in any way ok or normal and I respect anyone who thinks I am disgusting or I exhibit inhumane characteristics, because personally, I think so too.
I was dating someone for the past 3.5 years. We started Dec 2019 and ended March 2023. From 2013 - 2019, I've idolized the idea of having a girl and sex. I am 23, so I was only 13 at that time. During this time, I really wanted a girlfriend and I was very lonely. I was never bullied or picked on at school, but I never hung out with the more popular group either. But in 2019 everything changed when a girl messaged me wanting to pursue me so I LEAPED at the chance. This was the problem. I sped through the initial "getting to know each other" phase and went STRAIGHT for "I want you to be my girlfriend" within maybe 2-3 days of talking. At this point, I haven't even met her yet. Mind you, this girl isn't 100% a girl I would normally go for in terms of physicality / looks. I initially didn't really find her attractive but I assumed it would grow on me over time... This right here, is the reason I never ended up truly loving her to the degree I wanted to. I am quite superficial and attractiveness plays a big role. Sex has never been an issue in our relationship but I think I was just absolutely mesmerized by her body cause she was thick and we are into the exact same types of kinks and fetishes so the sex was absolutely amazing and she has incredible tits which always turned me on. But that was about it...
A few months go by and our "honeymoon" phase was extremely short-lived and we entered the conflict phase extremely fast. By this time we were a couple of months into the relationship. I noticed I was still pursuing other girls even though she was my girlfriend. I started to give less and less into the relationship while she was giving me 120% everyday. She's an absolute gem but unfortunately my love for her just wasn't fully there. 1.5 years go by and I decide I want to take a break and use this time to figure out what I want and most likely break up with her. I told her I will be back soon, but during this time, I had sex with a girl I really, really liked. I didn't tell my girlfriend at that time. Everyday I would question "Do I really like this girl or just the idea of having a best friend and a significant other?" It was the latter, but I was too scared to tell her the truth. So I pumped through another year and things got worse and worse. I cheated on her multiple times during our relationship, but I didn't have the heart to tell her until we broke up and I confessed everything. 3 years into the relationship I confessed I cheated, and she was numb to everything at this point. Then she snapped after a few more months and we broke up because she could no longer bear the pain and suffering.
I destroyed her. Her confidence, self-esteem, happiness, everything. I feel like an absolute monster and I feel lower than pond scum. I am confused why I did this. I tried to force myself into thinking I could look past the problems and continue and get married, but had we gotten married, it would 100% ended up in a divorce and just a terrible marriage. So I'm glad we broke up, I personally have healed and I don't really feel sad I lost her, I just feel absolutely devastated at the fact that I hurt such a pure, amazing girl. She has never EVER done me wrong, was always truthful, considered my opinions and valued them and the list goes on and on. And I go do this? Am I a monster? I'm currently getting professional help because this is not right and this might be worse than I thought. I don't know what to think or feel. I am so numb and senseless and I keep thinking about this and it's eating away at me. Why did I get over her in 1 week? I cried for a few days then moved on. But she said she needs at least 1 year to process everything and then she will only consider dating someone else again. I ruined her. She wanted us to work out SO badly but my "love" only came in phases when I needed someone... I used her... I used an incredible girl for my own pleasure and support and never reciprocated it.
What is wrong with me?

2023.05.28 15:01 No_Concentrate_1278 Almost drowning, yay
My family an I went paddle boarding this weekend and it was great. It’s myself (29f), husband (30m), our daughter (6), and our son who is 2. It was me an my son in one paddle and my husband an daughter on the other. We had a great time and it was sunny and calm, got to the other side of the lake no problem and waited for a small sprinkle rain to pass in a shallow wooded cove that was almost magical. We noticed that the evening storm looked like it was coming sooner than expected so decided to leave when the sprinkles stopped. I was matching my husbands strokes but all of a sudden I noticed that he was much farther ahead of me an my son so I called to him but my voice just disappeared into the lake and he didn’t hear me. At this point there is no one else on the lake.
The wind kicks up really heavy and me an my son try our best to balance the board but we eventually fell into the water. It was about 81 degrees out but the water was probably 60-70 degrees.. not warm but tolerable. Now my husband always gives me grief about what I think is a bit of an irrational fear about me freaking out randomly about losing my son in water. I’ve always been afraid of lakes and oceans so anytime I even get on a lake I’m pushing myself, so let alone with my children. Anyways, since my fear my son had a life jacket on as normal and he was strapped into the paddle board with the ankle strap. We were in the water for about 10 minutes before I could get my son up. The wind was making waves and the board was upside down. It was such a pain to flip it and keep my sons head out of the water and not crying. I did it and put my son up first and tried to kick to any shore but I was in the middle of this lake and the wind was blowing me everywhere. I managed to get up and at that time I realized I lost my ore.. we were stuck in the wavy windy lake with no way to move and no one is on this lake. I can’t see my daughter an husband so I thought he would get help right away after not seeing us.
My son an I balanced on the board for about 15 minutes and I screamed and yelled for help but my voice didn’t carry. I tried to keep my son warm and he just wanted hugs. Then I saw a speed boat an I waved my hands and yelled and waved an waved and the lady waved back. She grabbed my son and my legs were dead so this man picked me off the board. I cried right away said thank you and asked if my husband was ok and they told me they we good and asked them for help. We then picked up a canoe with a 3 year old that needed help an towed them in.. it happened so fast I was never so scared.
I hate the water

2023.05.28 14:48 Gorddammit Destiny is **WRONG** about 'equivocation'
Disclaimer: the title is a meme no ban pls
IDK which one of you motherfuckers pointed to him the dictionary definition of "equivocation" as a means to say that things like A is B and C is B is not equivocation but is false equivalance. Whoever it was, you're mom's a ho, and your definition is insufficient.
Square Up (our definitions)
verb: equivocate; 3rd person present: equivocates; past tense: equivocated; past participle: equivocated; gerund or present participle: equivocating
use ambiguous language so as to conceal the truth or avoid committing oneself.
"“Not that we are aware of,” she equivocated"
Cool, understandable, we now know what 15 words the dictionary uses to indicate the meaning of "equivocate"
Now let's click "see more"
Origin: late Middle English (in the sense ‘use a word in more than one sense’): from late Latin aequivocat- ‘called by the same name’, from the verb aequivocare, from aequivocus (see equivocal)
Equivocal here means of the same voice equi (same) vocal (voice)
So it's not just "being vague" if it were the word wouldn't have a use outside of a synonym for prevaricate (what half you motherfuckers mean when you say equivocate btw)
Here's another definition, one far more relevant to discussions of reasoning logic or philosophy:
late 14c., "the fallacy of using a word in different senses at different stages of the reasoning" (a loan-translation of Greek homonymia, literally "having the same name"), from Old French equivocation, from Late Latin aequivocationem (nominative aequivocatio), noun of action from aequivocus "of identical sound, of equal voice, of equal significance, ambiguous, of like sound," past participle of aequivocare, from aequus "equal" (see equal (adj.)) + vocare "to call," which is related to vox (genitive vocis) "voice" (from PIE root *wekw- "to speak").
If I were to say we have a right to bear arms, and also said that a nuclear warhead is a type of arm, I am drawing a false equivalence, arguably
I would also be equivocating, because "arms" in the sense it is used to give us the right to bear arms has a conceptual bound far before we reach nuclear warheads.
If I were to say politics is violence and punching protesters is violence, I would be equivocating unambiguously. Using the same word to refer to two different conceptual understandings, violence as in coercion and violence as in physical force intent on harming someone. Again this is also
* a false equivalence.
These are false equivalences, but "equivocation" is the means they are using to draw that false equivalence. And is a totally valid use of the word which conveys meaning, and is coherent to the use, and origin of the word.
For why Equivocate (in some cases) is the superior term: It is useful to call out false equivalencies where they happen, so for example if someone were to say that men rape women but women "emotionally rape" men, they are making a false equivalency and should rightfully be called out (again meme pls no ban)
But it's way more useful to use "equivocate", where you are claiming that not only are two things not of the same value but also not of the same concept.
eg: Politics is violence, throwing eggs is violence. If I call that a false equivalence what I am saying is that the value of one type of violence is not the same as the value of another. When we all know throwing eggs is way worse.
But if I call it "equivocation" I am not just saying the degree of "violence" isn't the same, I am saying the concepts the term "violence" are referring to in each use is different. This is a fundamentally different objection and justifies the use of a separate term. You're not just equating the values of similar actions, you're confusing completely disparate concepts!
In Conclusion Too many people are using whatever understanding some nerd posted here at whatever time and policing what are valid uses of the term equivocate/equivocation and this needs to fucking stop, it needed to stop a long time ago. Eggs are violence, change my mind events are not, and I want a nuke.

2023.05.28 14:36 WhiteLabelHouse Which Tracksmith items are the best for hot and humid weather ?
Looking for some recommendations of training shorts/tops/singlets from Tracksmith that are the best suited for very hot and humid weather.
With all of the different collections available, it can get a bit confusing. For reference I went for a run early this morning in 30 degrees/60% humidity weather.
Thank you :)

2023.05.28 14:16 squirrellyhehefeind Planning my loans
Just some background- I will graduate with my masters in May of 2024. And I plan to go back to an ABSN program after working for 1 year. Then after working as a nurse for 1-3y I plan to apply and hopefully get into CRNA school. This is roughly an 8-9 year plan untill I have a constant income.
Right now I have 27,000 in federal loans for undergrad.
For grad school I have 20,000 on direct unsubsidized loans Then I have another 23,000 on plus loans And I owe my parents 60,000 in private loans. Any further schooling from here that I do will be on government private loans and not from my parents.
Year 1- My master degree will give me a starting salary of 55-75K - which I will only use for 1 year. When I do make income this 1st year, how should I split up my paycheck?
Year 2- The ABSN program will be roughly 60-80k in tuition. No income during this 1 year. Living off PLUS loans entirely.
Year 3-5 Hopefully working as a nurse for 1-3 years will bring in some solid income but it's not for a long period of time. When I do get my paycheck these couple years, how should I split up my pay check?
Year 6-9 Then CRNA school is basically 150k for 3 years. No income during these 3 years. Living off PLUS loans entirely.
Year 10- Start earning as a CRNA! Woohoo! Roughly 190-230k starting
How do you recommend I organize my loans/ payment plans to combat the loans/ living costs? Which loans should I take out/ what should I looking for when shopping for loans?
Any help is appreciated please! I'm not sure how to maneuver loans that well.

2023.05.28 14:13 Johannes_Katze Drove my friends GT3 and it made me appreciate my mx5 even more
| || |
I was at a trackday with some of my friends and when it came to driving back (bit over an hour drive) my friend with a beautiful 911 991.2 GT3 Manual (a manual gt3 is my absolute dream car) stopped and was like "I want to drive your mx5, you take my car" of course that is not something you have to tell a car person twice. submitted by Johannes_Katze to Miata [link] [comments]
So I got in and the first bit of the drive were straight 2 lane per side roads with a 90khp speed limit. Which in the mx5 is not too bad, as you can just cruise with the top down and still feel like you are going at least not super slow with the car moving around over the straight, but not flat road. The gt3 however is not happy with going 100kph. It does that in second gear (at 6,5k rpm, but I mean it revs to 9k). And every single one of its 500 hp desperately wants to go forward. So as a person that values his licence you sit at 100-110 in 4th gear and whenever a truck comes up you press the loud pedal slightly and it just pulls and pulls and when you look back on your speedo you are going 160+ after what feels like one second, without even using full throttle. And that sound, incredible. But does it feel fast? Still not really. So you slow down again and hope for the next car you can overtake, so you at least have a reason to go a bit faster. It's also even more uncomfortable and harder that the MX-5. These are first world problems, that we as slow MX-5 drivers simply do not know.
Then my friend overtook me and led me into some very nice roads, just wider than the Porsche (Which is probably double as wide as the MX-5) with a roller coaster feel that would put the WRC finland to shame (but with very good asphalt instead of gravel). My friend (who is a waaay better and faster driver than me) really hussled the MX-5 around these roads, so I could really drive the GT3 as fast as I would have done without someone leading me. And did I have incredible fun? Yes, 100%. But did the car make me feel like a driving god, like the MX-5 does so easily? No, because you would need to possess the skills of Water Röhrl to drive the GT3 to its limits on roads like this safely. So I was driving at maybe 50-60% of what the car can do and it was letting me know that. Because the Porsche 911 is a mix of normal car and spaceship, it is perfectly drivable on normal road speeds, without feeling too crazy. Exext that sound, it is truly amazing, at any speed. But it is also not as engaging at these slow speeds, if you want to feel the limits of the car you are going 3x the speed limit, regardless of what that speed limit is. But what is missing is the responsiveness and movement of the MX-5. How it turns instantly when you turn the steering wheel even for a centimeter, how it gets light over bumps, how it moves around in a corner, how the rear gets light when breaking into a corner, ... And I am sure you can experience that in the GT3 as well, but as a mere mortal? On roads like these I would crash before even reaching the limit.
So I have probably talked too much, but what do I want to even say with this? We NA drivers should really appreciate how analog and fun these cars are, and how good they make you feel as a driver. I wish I could drive these roads in some other 90s sports cars, to see how they feel. I had a little drive in a 993 porsche 4s with a GT3 engine, and that was probably the single greatest car I ever drove.
I would love to hear if you have similar experiences? What about even older cars then the mx5, do they feel even more fun to drive, or are the tires and suspension maybe not as nice as in a more modern car?
Also I don't want to throw any shade at the 911 GT3. It is probably the single greatest track car if you drive from and to the track, that has ever been built. Also I will really miss the automatic throttle blip rematching in a manual, it makes shifting so much smoother, when you don't what to revmatch yourself. And sure it's fun, but on a 2h drive in traffic, I get tired of it.

2023.05.28 14:09 brilliantn0rth I can't go on like this.
My husband and I (both 31) haven't been married a full year yet but we've been together for almost 9. We were just out of college when we started dating and we had a few years of long distance before we ended up back in the same area and eventually moved in together.
I am a very emotional and sensitive person, and have been this way my whole life. My husband is the opposite - he is content to operate at a constant level of "fine." I thought for a long time that this was a good balance, but in the last few years I've realized he is emotionally repressed to an extreme degree and simply cannot connect with me on a level that makes me feel valued. Our sex life was never anything incredible, but once we lived together it was like he just stopped caring about that altogether, whereas cohabitation actually made me more excited for it. Over time, the differences in our libido started to wear on me, and I'm now at my wit's end feeling disconnected and lonely. When we got engaged, it was a result of me essentially begging him to take that step with me or leave me, because marriage is important to me. He agreed, but I wish so badly that I had valued myself enough to consider that maybe I shouldn't actually be with someone who wasn't all that excited about marrying me.
I have a therapist and have worked with her to try and better my communication methods so that I can express myself as openly as possible. My husband seems to hear me in the moment, and assured me he loves me and wants this to work, but ultimately any trying he does to be more vulnerable or sexually open with me fall back to his old patterns. I'm starting to worry that this is how it will always be, and that he doesn't have it in him to actually make significant changes for our marriage. We always planned to have kids and would start trying soon, but lately I'm deeply confused about whether or not I truly want to raise children with him.
When I reflect on our years together, there is a startling lack of the kind of passion I always dreamed I'd have, even in the beginning. We've grown up together in a lot of ways, but I feel like I'm beginning to move beyond where he can go. I want to make positive changes for myself that would also benefit our partnership, but I don't feel supported. At this point I feel like we are housemates who occasionally get a little flirty, not like we are true partners in life with a deep bond. I've expressed interest in trying new hobbies together, he's not interested. I try them myself, he doesn't seem to notice or care. Every time I express my loneliness and dissatisfaction, he acts surprised like he hasn't noticed any change in my behavior.
I'm not a perfect wife, of course. I have plenty of things I could improve for the sake of this union, and I try, but I don't have it in me to be the only one trying anymore. I don't know where to go from here.

Me myself, I have watched MMA religiously for more than 10 years and trained for over 4.5 years, I love this sport so I figured why not help bring some insight and analysis to others! Now this isn’t a sales pitch, I know how Reddit works and I really enjoy the opinions shared on this sub-reddit so I genuinely want to help contribute and if you enjoy the output, please feel free to join the team! We are proven to be profitable long-term so if you have some spare change to invest at any level, you love the sport and are interested in improving your knowledge - come over and check us out at providepicks.com
. As we have a fair base of paying members, it wouldn’t be fair to them to share every single one of our bets however I want to provide as much value for this betting community as people, hopefully to help you guys see a different angle in terms of MMA betting and long-term profitability and more importantly - sending these bookies broke.
Anyways enough waffle - let’s get into this week’s shenanigans. This is a surprisingly fun fight night card, I love these events that are lower on name value but just full of decent talent and exciting matchups. This is definitely one of them and generally when you have slightly lesser talent stacked fight nights, you have a night full of violence and finishes - let’s see if that continues in this one. Onto the breakdowns! Maxim Grishin (32-9-2) vs. Philipe Lins (16-5):
Grishin is a tall, orthodox fighter who is just a real good mixed martial artist. He is a big frame for the LHW division, is strong and still has fairly slow, plodding style of movement and footwork. Is good in the clinch, very good at holding position by winning underhooks and using his big head to frame against the neck of his opponent and keep them in position for taxing knees to the body and just wearing on them with his big frame. I like his ability to keep the fight in his range, using slight forward pressure and a decent feint game to his advantage. Can be a little heavy set on the lead leg so should look out for the speedy outside leg kick of Lins in this one - Grishin is also pretty handy at catching the body kick and punishing. Personally, never been massively high on Lins in his career, admittedly he has looked better since dropping to his proper weight class post juice cycle but it is against weak competition. He is OK everywhere but not great anywhere, I do like his hand-speed with his boxing combos especially when pressuring forward. I think he mixes in takedowns well in his game at times but he can also be held against the cage. I probably slightly edge Lins in terms of cardio but I also do think this is a massive watch the scales fight due to Grishin’s size and propensity for bad weight cuts. This is a tough fight to call given both guys are fairly unimpressive. I favour the speed of Lins with the hand-speed and kicks definitely but he doesn’t set them up intelligently. I think Grishin can hold Lins against the cage, wear on him with his size and win minutes. I capped this fight 50/50 and I think we see a close fight, will take Maxim Grishin by UD
but with very low confidence. BET:
No bet. Luan Lacerda (12-2) vs. Da'Mon Blackshear (12-5-1):
I like what I saw on debut from Lacerda - he has a very Muay Thai style of fighting, very flat-footed with a high guard, move forward pressuring with the lead leg ready to pop up and check kicks quickly. He has sharp, fast hands and particularly his hooks to the body are very technically sound. Against Stamann he was able to mix some grappling in when it suited but it is clear he is more of an Aldo style fighter that prefers to stuff takedowns and keep it on the feet. Coming up against Blackshear here who I have been very impressed with even though he is off 2 losses. Da’mon is a super well rounded guy, I like his creative offence on the feet and I also like his offensive grappling ability on the ground too. Defensively, he leave a little more to be desired and can be a little comfortable with fighting off his back which I don’t particularly like. We haven’t seen too much grappling from Lacerda so will be interested to see how he fares in this one but I think the technicality of Lacerda on the feet, the ability to mix his targets to the head, body and legs and just land the more damaging strikes will edge him this one. Taking Luan Lacerda by UD. BET:
No bet. Jinh Yu Frey (11-8) vs. Elise Reed (6-3):
I would be doing a disservice to everyone who reads this if I honestly told you with any level of confidence that you should put your hard earned money anywhere near this fight. Don’t, simple as that. Daniel Santos (10-2) vs. Johnny Munoz Jr. (12-2):
This is a super fun matchup between two very efficient grapplers which should make for a exciting scrap here. Let’s start with Daniel Santos, if you knew nothing of this guy and watched him fight and had half a clue on MMA, you would know immediately that he is a Chute Boxe fighter. He has relentless forward pressure, irresponsible boxing defence and is a very kill or be killed style fighter. I like his stalking style, but he has little head movement besides the pull counter really, likes to pressure you until that back foot is up against the cage and then explode in with spinning attacks or elbows from weird angles. He keeps his hands high but then head on centre line and thus far has shown some crazy durability but this can only get you so far. Looks to have solid grappling, not accepting bottom position and constantly looking to invert and throw up submissions. Against Arce he looked good however Arce was able to be elusive with his footwork, stick and move and use angles well to counter in and out of range. I think against anyone who can effectively stay on the outside and use smart, straight shots effectively, he will struggle. I just don’t think that guy is Munoz JR on the feet - he is clunky, doesn’t throw in combinations and looks to parry alot of shots defensively which I really don’t like against a guy who throws wild, unorthodox strikes in Santos. He is a solid wrestler with some good offensive TD numbers but he has to be careful not to shoot unintelligently and throw himself into a submission which will make him hesitant and have to strike. I think Munoz’s wins have been against low level guys who aren’t in the promotion anymore and I think this is a bad stylistic fight for him. I think Santos will land the more damaging shots and I fancy he gets him out of here in under 2 rounds. Taking Daniel Santos via TKO RD 1. BET:
Like the look of the Santos moneyline, fancy Santos Inside the Distance too but will wait to see what price this opens at. If we get anything in the realm of +125 to -120, I would look at a 1.5 unit play. Under 2.5 rounds is an option also depending on price, I think it will probably be around the -200 to -250 play so anything south of that will be a play too. Andrei Arlovski (34-21) vs. Don'Tale Mayes (9-5):
Huge experience edge to the old-dawg here in Arlovski. Mayes has been everything but impressive thus far in his UFC career and I don’t know how you could be intrigued to play either side in this one. Mayes can hit hard and is reasonably athletic for the HW division but skill for skill outside the boxing, he doesn’t offer a lot. I couldn’t be confident on ever betting him to be quite honest. You know what you’re going to get with Arlovski and that is volume, if his chin can handle what is coming back at him. He is a special for split decisions so if you’re a degen and want action, look to that but for me, no interest here. Will take the side of Andrei Arlovksi via UD
using his volume and experience but you couldn’t be more lower confidence. John Castañeda (19-6) vs. Muin Gafurov (18-4) :
Gafurov taking this on short-notice with Castaneda set to take on Mendonca before that was cancelled and replaced with possibly the furthest opposite style of fighter. The Gafurov gameplan is simple, contest on the feet, use blitz attacks such as looping overhands when moving forward followed by a double leg against the cage and rely on his Sambo capabilities to hold top position and out-work his opponent. Castañeda is a guy that doesnt get a huge amount of spotlight but I like his game alot. He has nice footwork, good striking out of southpaw and orthodox, has good wrestling entries and is able to grapple competitively, just a solid all around mixed martial artist. In this one, I really favour the movement and footwork of Castañeda and I think the speed is going to give Gafurov issues. Castañeda is sitting at a 60% TD Defence rate which is concerning against a guy who will consistently shoot like Gafurov, but I think Castañeda will be hard to find, using the angles in and out of the pocket and throwing quick shots up the middle to dissuade and make Gafurov think. I like John Sexi Mexi Castañeda to win this one by UD. BET:
No lines opened yet but have capped Castañeda as a 60% winning chance. Elizeu Zaleski (23-7) vs. Abubakar Nurmagomedov (17-3-1):
Zaleski is an interesting fighter to me. Good sprawl, solid TD Def against the cage, good balance and strength to win underhooks. Quite a flat-footed striker, not a massive amount of footwork but I like his rear leg power kick, he hits the body well and switches levels nicely. Relatively low volume and works single shots mainly without a massive amount of feinting. The frequency that he fights worries me but it has been the story of his career. Abubakr is the typical Dagestani fighter, limited stand up basically a quick overhand right and other single shots, tied in with a grinding, gruelling wrestling pace. He seems on the lower end of the Nurmagomedov scale in terms of skill, often leaving himself open to submission when in top control whether it’s knee-bars or even the common triangle. He is able to hold a good pace over 15 mins which is good given how top heavy and smothering he can be at times. He fights out of both stances, looks more comfortable out of OD but if he fights SP, I think he will lose this fight. Zaleski is too sharp on the feet especially with the body kicks and straight shots which will only be accentuated in the opposite stances. I also think the knees for Zaleski are going to be huge here, he throws them with bad intentions in the centre and against the cage which tied in with his teeps and front kicks are a dangerous sight for Abubakr. Abubakr is a good chance at smothering the fire power of Zaleski and just wearing on him but I think he is dangerous enough off his back to survive and challenge at times and I expect the damage will start to add up on the Zaleski side and I think we see a finish. Taking Elizeu Zaleski via TKO RD 2.
BET: Zaleksi ITD will be a play if over +200. Moneyline odds are probably bang on. Guram Kutateladze (12-3) vs. Jamie Mullarkey (16-5):
Guram has a K1 kickboxing background and it shows, very high level on the feet with good head movement and sharp, unpredictable strikes set up with a smart feint game. He has really good distance management, uses great fundamentals and is super quick with his hand-speed and he finishes combos with kicks which I love, its that kickboxing mentality. He fights out of All Stars which shows in his TD Defence especially against the fence, he is clearly strong but has very good wrestling and counter wrestling technique. He has had a super high level of competition and performed very well in wins and losses, we just don’t see him active enough due to injuries and bad luck. Mullarkey is an absolute junkyard dog, pushing the pace and moving forward with intense pressure making you fight every second of that 15 minutes. He like to engage in the pocket, for better or worse, and in recent times we have seen his wrestling really shine through some of these tough scraps. He has a nice jab which I expect to be pumping prior to every combo and entry for Mullarkey. I just think at this point in his career this is quite a tough fight for Mullarkey. Guram is a super high-level striker with a good base for stuffing takedowns and keeping the fight in kickboxing range. I expect Mullarkey to want to close distance and engage, I just don’t think defensively he is strong enough to absorb and adapt to the speed and combinations of Guram and I think we see that chin tested for Mullarkey. I think this is a bit of a step down in competition for Guram although if Mullarkey can get some early takedowns it will be interesting to see the gastank of Guram tested. The activity is always a question mark but at this point I think Guram should win this handily, will be taking Guram Kutateladze via TKO RD 2. BET:
Wouldn’t touch Guram at -350 but he should win. Karine Silva (15-4) vs. Ketlen Souza (13-3):
Silva should win here but at that price, even blind Freddie could see that this is a pass on the moneylines. Silva actually has a high finishing ability in terms of WMMA, so if we can get a good price on a fight doesnt go the distance line, that could be an option here.
BET: Wait for round lines to drop. Tim Elliott (18-12-1) vs. Victor Altamirano (12-2):
Altamirano is a SP fighter, fairly unusual style of striking with sort of a Tony Ferguson style mixed in with some well timed takedown attempts. He has very little power in his strikes but OK volume. Defensively, he leaves a lot to be desired with a modified sort of philly shell style where his lead hand is low and near the hip, he does get hit and often but he has shown very good durability. His takedowns worry me at times because he is very content to dip his head to an advancing opponent and run a double or single leg, he is very open to knees and front kicks up the middle. Tim Elliott lives up to his nickname of “Awkward” extremely well. He has bizarre head movement, footwork and feints that all tie in to his sort of herky jerky style of fighting. He is able to tie his wrestling game in very well, I’d say technically he is far more technically sound than Victor. He does put himself into submission opportunities with some of his entries but im not too worried about that in this fight. This has the potential to be one of the worst fights we have seen TBH and only because of how weird and unorthodox these guys are, the awkwardness really has the potential to make this fight a strange one. I am pretty confident that Tim has the grappling/wrestling edge and also the more diverse and comfortable striker, the recent occurrence with Tim and Gina Mazany in the media does give me pause that he might be coming into this too emotional but I think it may fire him up to really perform. I think Tim is under his value here and can win in a multitude of ways, going to take Tim Elliott via UD. BET: Tim Elliott Moneyline -175 (2 Units to win 1.14 Units) Jim Miller (35-17) vs. Jared Gordon (19-6):
I will keep this one short and simple, Gordon is a really bad stylistic matchup for Miller and would win probably 7/10 times currently BUT he is returning way too soon after getting KO’d by that headbutt from Bobby Green. Gordon has good wrestling and generally good durability with a knack for pushing these grinding paces and outworking and outlasting his opponent. Pair that up with good submission defence and thats a horror fight for A10 Miller. But you can never count Jim out, he hits hard for a vet, he is unorthodox and he has the potential to catch you. For me, Gordon should roll here but I love to play Jim Miller round one given that is his money round - have cashed plenty on this through his career! Short breakdown and not a thorough one, I think Jared Gordon should win this fight but I think it is too soon. I will take Jared Gordon via UD
**,** but take it with a pinch of salt. BET: Jim Miller wins round 1 (price not available yet, .75 units) Alex Caceres (20-13) vs. Daniel Pineda (28-14):
Haven’t had time to break this one down yet but will update if any bets come off it! Kai Kara-France (24-10) vs. Amir Albazi (16-1):
KKF is a kickboxing fighter who we have seen develop nicely through his career in the UFC. He has worked tirelessly on his takedown defence and it shows in his huge improvement in ability to not only stuff shots but his ability to use the cage and his excellent balance to keep his feet underneath him. I think KKF’s hands are still fairly rudimentary and not necessarily in a bad way, he uses the jab decently well and relies on the 1,2 sometimes too much. For his weight, he has good power and one area I really like are his leg kicks, he has solid rear leg power kicks that he lands very efficiently off the back of his straight shots. Albazi is more of a grappler in nature with a majority of his victories by submission but I have liked what I have seen from him on the feet also. He has a sharp, snappy jab which he works off the back of and allows to dictate the fight. He has a pretty limited kicking game and in terms of kick defence, I expect KKF to really try and exploit the lack of checking and the heavy set stature of Albazi. In the grappling realm, I don’t think it’s close. Albazi has some elite scrambles on the mat and if you’re content to sit in his guard, he has some really damaging ground and pound in which he will equally target your head and body and punish you and wear on you. Albazi is far superior in terms of grappling but the question is will he be able to get it down to the mat? I think his timing going under the big right hand will be an option and I think he will be able to use his strength advantage when in close to muscle certain movements. This is a big step up in competition and his first venture into main event rounds which is a worry. This is going to be a fun fight and I am really looking forward to it but I think as long as everything looks good after weigh-ins, I will be on the Albazi side. He is improving with every fight and I think we see him get this fight to the ground and wear on KKF, eventually finding a submission, probably a RNC. Taking Amir Albazi via SUB RD 3. BET:
Will wait to see what round lines are set at. Will be looking at the Albazi Inside the Distance line also. -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
And that wraps up the breakdowns for this week! We send our followers the full betting cards on Saturday morning here in Australia, post weigh-ins. Nothing worse than betting on a fighter pre weigh-in, just to see him look like complete shit on the scales. We will post some of our betting card here incase anyone is interested!
Good luck, always gamble responsibly and remember to hang around long-term because there will be ups and downs but trust the process and we will build some bankroll. Would love to know if you agree or disagree anywhere and let us know who you are riding with below. Enjoy the fights! - Dylan.

I grabbed a burrito tonight for dinner with white rice, black beans, chicken, sour cream, cheese and lettuce along with chips and a side of queso. The food was incredibly salty and I had a nausea about an hour after eating. I’ve been throwing up and going to the bathroom with diarrhea for the last 4 hours. Also the workers weren’t handling stress well and the work areas looked a mess. Read full report here

2023.05.28 13:30 peluda22 Tan
So I’m Mongolian, when I was baby I was quite pale. When I saw pics of me at 5-6 I was hella tan. When I was very young I spent all day outside in the Mongolian countryside 30 degree summer. Even now Im 17 and still have a heavy tan.
Like on the outer side of my arm my skin is somewhat brown but the inside of arm is very pale like at birth. My elbows are black.
I want to have an even skin tone. I don’t like having one side of my arm brown and one side like snow. I started wearing sunscreen for a few months but its still tanned.
So will this tan go away or for us Mongolians are tans like permanent or something?? I know for white people their tans go away after not too long

2…… What I’m Seeking
5…… Physical Characteristics (with pics)
6…… Expectations of You

8…… Deal Breakers
9…… Closing Remarks
The Main Goal:
Well if you’re browsing this subreddit then much like me, you were alone this weekend and I’m sure you’d like to change that as much as me. I won’t lie, I am going through a rough part of my life right now. It’s difficult for me to find the energy for anything at the moment and I’m just really seeking affection in general, anything that will give me a push. I don’t want to be that person who brings everyone down but I could really use someone to talk to right now. I’d really like to find someone who’s similar to me so much to the point that we do everything together and talk about everything while not having to pretend to be interested. I want someone with whom we can mutually spew our emotions onto and have those feelings reciprocated. Not an emotional punching bag, but an emotional teddy bear to hug and cuddle until everything feels better as many times as we need. There’s people who I’m sure have told you the same, they’ll be there no matter how many times you need the support, no matter how many times the insecurities and bad thoughts come back but they don’t mean it. I will be the exception, I’m not so ignorant to think some nice words and tales of relating to you will magically forever heal whatever ails you then get mad when you seek the same support again. Mental ailments are rarely temporary and I don’t care about someone because they’re perfect, caring about someone means being there no matter how many times they need you to be. It doesn’t feel like a chore, it doesn’t get old, and it never will.
What I'm Seeking:
I will upfront let you know if I’m clicking better with someone else or if you’re the one, I’m not here to tread the sea of fish or keep my options open, I’m here for one singular person.
A relationship is difficult for me right now, it’s been nearly half a year since I got out of my last relationship and the reasons for it ending are partially responsible for how I’ve been feeling and why it’s so hard for me to seek the comfort I so desperately crave. I will tell you about it but for the sake of not treating the entirety of the internet as my therapist, it’ll be in private. I really need the comfort of intimacy and the warmth of someone who cares. I'm not going to feel better if I just sulk and don’t move on. This is my attempt to get better, I’ll admit I’m not great right now and I don’t expect you to be either. If we can help each other heal, then I’d be more than happy :) A relationship isn’t just being there for when someone’s at their best. Even if a relationship is hard at the moment, I do want a life partner and I don’t want to be alone. Things aren’t going to get easier without you so I don’t want to hesitate. I view my other as an equal, I don’t like categorizing us into specific roles. We take care of each other and treat each other how we like to be treated, whatever that is, it's as simple as that. I don't care if you're "successful" or not, living simple lives with our days filled with love is the ultimate measure of success to me.
On the Surface:
As you can tell I can be rather… stoic but that’s largely due to my current stressors, I truthfully am goofy and fun loving but I just can’t find it in me right now. I want to return to that but without someone to light up my world it’s been difficult to just have fun and enjoy stuff. I’m definitely more introverted, you won’t catch me at any parties or really outside at all. I definitely prefer being home though the occasional outing is not out of the question and one day I’d like to travel to other countries because I think that kind of perspective is important.
The Core of My Being:
I like being a spectator to it all and if we bear witness to humanity burning or its miraculous recovery, I want to watch it with you. I enjoy watching humanity advance, less so when it devolves but I want to watch it to the end nonetheless. I’m both a realist and someone who lives with my head in the clouds dreaming of scenarios or worlds that don’t exist. I’m saying that I enjoy a good narrative and can suspend my disbelief to enjoy something but you won’t catch me refusing vaccines or ignoring blatant facts for the sake of some pseudo science or witch doctor’s remedy. I’m an atheist but I do not rule out existence after death, not because I’m agnostic but because due to the nature of potentially infinite time at some point after how many googol years with a googol amount of 0s after that, something’s bound to replicate your consciousness perfectly at some point. It’s actually a really fascinating topic I like talking about. If infinite time and infinite possibilities exist, does non existence exist? Though that’s an awfully existentially dreadful thought process considering the ramifications of infinite existence and infinite possibilities during said infinite existence. I would say I’m confidently left leaning and I don’t think I could truly get along with anyone right leaning, at least America’s definition of right leaning. Left and right seems to have just become; do people deserve to suffer or do they deserve to live good lives? Being political is not something I expected to become but how can you not be when crimes against human rights are being passed on a daily basis and at the end of the day, everything’s political. Oftentimes I imagine the perfect moment as relaxing with my significant other playing games or cuddling in a cold room under blankets.
I value that special someone above all of the existential thoughts, the bad of the world, the good of the world, they practically become my world. So many worries wash away when I’m with them. I don’t know if that’s the defense mechanism my brain created to not feel bad 24/7 but if it is, I’m currently without it.
I talk of philosophy and politics here but really I spend most of my time just playing games, watching stuff, and trying to not be sleep deprived. I’m also nowhere near as well spoken, heck sometimes I feel like my speech is broken. I won’t claim to be something I’m not, I sit at home while I complain about the world doing nothing about it wishing I had someone here with me. I’m not noble nor do I really want to be, I have morals I uphold but much like most other hypocrites I acknowledge that my comfortable life is built on the suffering of others without doing anything about it. Why? My sleep problems? Am I depressed? Is that why I have no energy to do anything? Do I just think nothing I could do could help? I can’t nail it down myself, maybe it’s a mix of everything, maybe I’m just a bad person. I have always told myself that if I had wealth I would help people but if I get that kind of wealth will I just become a wealth hoarder who tries to justify my riches as something I earned rather than something given to me through incredibly lucky circumstances? If I do help people is it because I’m a good person or out of guilt? Will I die alone? I feel like I drive everyone away with my clinginess, I get paranoid often and need reassurance often. It’s something I want to work on, something I’ve been trying to work on. Hearing that someone cares about me just never gets old. I value self awareness even if it’s painful.
I’m definitely a socially anxious/awkward mess, especially around strangers. I do feel a large amount of anxiety in public, people can’t tell by looking at my face since I kind of go stone faced in an attempt to block everything out but yeah you’ll notice that if we go out in public. Growing up my pediatrician said I was probably autistic, never got a formal diagnosis so that’s just great. But yeah that explains why I can’t make eye contact with people, I kinda just stare at the ground and avoid their gaze at all costs. A lot of these social struggles go away to a great degree once I know you for a bit but yeah I apologize for how terrible I am at socializing at first. Don’t let my social struggles fool you though, I love cuddling and being close with my person.
I am a heterosexual male, though I’m not very masculine like at all. I may even be a bit feminine sometimes. Not that I believe any activity or manner of acting belongs to a gender but I don’t know how else to describe it. I’m definitely super affectionate and love it when my partner is too. I am open to dating demi people but I do have a libido so I don't think asexual would work out.
As stated before, I do spend a lot of my time playing video games. It’s been hard lately with me having no energy but I really do want to play more games and have a good time playing them with you! I primarily play on PC though I do have a switch. I’m primarily into platform fighters, roguelikes, open world, survival, and sandbox games. As for single player story games, I enjoy watching them through twitch or youtube but for the most part I don’t play them myself. I’d watch you play them though!
Here’s a list of games we can play:
-Risk of Rain 2
-7 Days to Die
-Bloons TD 6
-Platform fighters: Super Smash Bros. Melee, Slap City, Multiversus, Flash Party, Fraymakers
Whatever you want to play I’ll give it a shot! I will say that League bores me to death but I’ll play it for you :) I try to avoid MMOs, not because I don’t like them but because of how addicted I can get to them. I enjoy learning games in-depth so MMOs can be a fast track to addiction.
I recently got Kerbal Space Program 2 and ehhh not really worth it right now but hopefully later it will be? I’m super excited for Tears of the Kingdom! In the far off future I’m excited for Rivals of Aether 2 which is a platform fighter releasing in 2024, let me know of your most anticipated releases and I’ll see if I could play them with you!
Also I never got into FPS games but I could totally see myself playing like CoD with you or Escape From Tarkov. Any FPS really, I’m down.
I am a fan of Pokemon but with how things have been lately I don’t know how long that will last. Pixelmon is a common Pokemon mod I play for Minecraft if you want to play that! Also if I say I want to play something with you I mean it but there are often times when no matter how much I want to I'm just drained and can do little more than lay in bed so please don't think I'm making an excuse.
I really enjoy keeping up with the latest advances in pretty much everything, it could be biology, technology, astronomy, anything! I love seeing progression and I love talking about it! Really I could go on and on about what I’m obsessing about that day. I particularly love technology, ask me for my laptop specs I dare you. When I was little I always wanted to be a scientist of any kind but then insomnia and fear of college stuff hit me like a truck aaaand that’s the end of that dream.
You got me, I like anime but I’d like to think my tastes are benign.
Here’s some of my favorites I can list from the top of my head:
- To Your Eternity
- Vinland Saga
- Spice and Wolf
- Mob Psycho
- Dr. Stone
- Attack on Titan
- Spy x Family
- My Hero Academia
- Ranking of Kings
- Demon Slayer
Okay I can go on and on but I will say I don’t like pointless fan service and the spamming of cliche anime moments. I mostly enjoy action and anything well animated if it doesn’t have a potato story. Heck Demon Slayer could be my top 3 out of season 2’s animation alone. I don’t watch slice of life often or romance but I would with you!
I’m not going to go on and on about the tiniest little things when the main ones are covered but I’ll watch pretty much any show with you and anything really. I like random youtube videos that explain some kind of lore or mystery, sometimes mini documentaries too.
As for food I looove sushi and I’m a sucker for fast food. Okay and candy, definitely candy.
I used to play tennis but haven’t really had the opportunity nor friends to play it with and I’m way too socially anxious to seek it out. Also I will say that when we move to something like discord I type waaaay more casually. I’m not going to expect long paragraphs back and forth like we’re writing English papers for each other, I do enjoy long conversations but seriously don’t worry about having to put the utmost effort into every response, I just like making good first impressions I guess.
My Physical Characteristics:
I’m 5’8 (172cm), 128 pounds (58kg), with curly brown hair and blue eyes. I like keeping my hair long in the winter and cutting it in the summer. I’m pretty slim in general so if you’re looking for someone large, that’s not me. I don’t work out but my work is pretty physical so at least I’m not totally inactive. I don’t have the urge to work out or gain muscle but I do want to maintain my slim figure so if I start losing control of that I’ll work out. I like to keep my face shaved because I don’t think I look good with a beard/mustache so if you’re into those I apologize. I have an average amount of body hair? I’d prefer to be completely shaved but it’s easy to lose motivation with that battle, if you prefer shaved then I’d have no problem complying. Anyways here’s what I look like: https://imgur.com/a/MZZgf2t
My Physical Preferences:
Having physical preferences makes me feel shallow, if I could make myself not have them I would but unfortunately that’s now how that works. I don’t care if you’re shorter or taller than me and I don’t care if you weigh more or less than me. All I ask is that you’re slim-average weight. I would never ask for someone to be something I’m not. I don’t care about tattoos or piercings.**(6)Expectations of You (Relationship Only):**I am not looking for someone “exciting” or someone to “keep me on my toes” I’m not looking for someone to cater to my every whim or anything like that. I don’t care if you’re “boring” or if you aren’t “successful”. I know it’s a common thing for people to not want a “boring” relationship and to seek something argumentative or something with constant challenges but I just want to be with you. During the exciting times, the boring times, and everything in-between, all of it will be great with you! Maybe we do argue sometimes or maybe there will be challenges but that will never be something I purposefully seek out and I don’t want that to be something you seek out either. I will not play tricks on you and I will not play mind games, I expect the same from you. We all have personal measures of success we may or may not have lived up to but what I care about most is our commitment to each other. If we have each other we can get through tough times, near the ends of our lives I want us to look back and feel that this life together was worth more than anything. That’s not saying I want us to be haphazard, I don’t want us to make poor decisions for the sake of yolo and I want us to always be rational, especially with each other. I want you to be someone I can trust to make decisions and weigh the options with a level head, I’ll try my best to live up to the same for you. Most of all I want empathy, understanding, someone to feel the utmost comfort and trust in.
Currently my life is pretty relaxed, I work 3 times a week as a night shift stocker. I currently live in a 2 bedroom apartment with my roommate but we’re looking to move into someplace larger by the end of the year if everything works out. The internet is weirdly great for Ohio too like I have fiber and later this year we’re supposed to be getting dedicated fiber so that’s neat. I’m not attached to Ohio so the ultimate goal living location wise is probably moving to a country that won’t send you into a lifetime of dealing with the repercussions from one medical emergency.
Might as well make this simple and make it a list.
- Unironically believing astrology
- Right wingers
- Hard drugs (occasional 420 and alcohol is fine, may even join you)
- Wanting children, there was a time when I was younger when I wanted children but with the state of the word that’s a definite no and I feel like I wouldn’t be able to handle the stress. I’d love a stress free life with as much time with you as possible.
- Super Religious
- Don’t be a bigot and don’t deny facts.
Well you made it, I was thinking that finding someone I’d be willing to put a lifetime of effort into at least required this much effort. If I think of anything more I’ll update the post. Also about timezones, it really doesn’t matter where in the world you are. I don’t have a sleep schedule and I have most of the week off from work so it really doesn’t matter.
I request that in your response you do put effort into it, it doesn’t have to be anywhere near as long as this but at least enough so I know that you read this and enough about you so I know why you saw potential compatibility. I will seriously read all of it and respond the best I can.

2023.05.28 13:25 typotusb Thank You Biden - My Timeline
I am a high-school dropout and former juvenile delinquent who was ordered by a judge to get a GED. That was a turning point in my life. After a couple false starts in community college, I finally decided I was going to make something of my life. After proving my ability with a couple 4.0 semesters in community college, I was accepted by Michigan State University. That was thirty-three years ago and my student loan journey began with $2,625 (Subsidized Stafford) + $4,000 (Unsubsidized Stafford) in 1990. I graduated with a degree in Business Administration in 1994. I passed the CPA exam in 1995 while attending graduate school and earned a MBA in 2000. I borrowed a total of $115,488 and worked for what once was one of the most highly esteemed accounting firms in the world. Surely, I would be able to easily pay that back relatively quickly. My employer, Arthur Andersen, was headline news every day because of the unexpected world's largest bankruptcy of my client, Enron. I remember panhandlers approaching me while I was waiting for the bus ride home from work, thinking that I'm in a far deeper hole than this guy who's asking me for money and I'll soon be unemployed. I landed on my feet and progressed up the ladder for the next 5 years until I made the career limiting move of contradicting my boss in a meeting of executives. That's when my career and earnings peaked at $85,000 and my position was eliminated (as a manager, I had already been instructed that's the company's strategy for avoiding lawsuits). PSLF was established the year before, which was the reason I eventually accepted a local government job that paid $65,000 during the 2008 recession. Five years into that job, I made the same dumb mistake again (I've finally learned to bite my tongue instead of reflexively stating the truth) and my boss fabricated an unrelated excuse to terminate my employment. For several years, I subsisted by reselling government surplus equipment on eBay, thinking that was a good idea because nobody could rug pull me again. Over the course of time, I was put into forbearance status several times. The original $115,488 I borrowed (at over 7% interest) had snowballed into a total of $294,558 because of negative-amortization of $179,070. A few years ago, I returned to public service and recently submitted an updated ECF, thinking I was close, but not quite at 120 payments. Today, I am nearly in disbelief that my balance is now $0. It feels surreal... I never thought I would live to see this day... I am 52 years old and finally debt-free other than my mortgage. I can now begin focusing on saving for retirement to make up for only being able to save about 1 year's pay, thanks to the payment pause for the past 3 years. Divorce and cashing out retirement savings to survive while selling junk on eBay set me back to $0 a few years ago. After seeing what Betsy DeVoss did during the former guy's administration, I believe this would have never happened without President Biden's temporary relief. There's a good chance PSLF will be eliminated when the republicans regain control, so remember that when voting. Timeline:
11/4/08: Reconsolidated loans with Direct Loans, a requirement for PSLF
7/24/16: 1st Employment Certification Form Submitted to Fedloan Servicing
5/05/23: 2nd Employment Certification Form Submitted to MOHELA
5/16/23: Payment count updated to 122 payments
5/26/23: MOHELA Smiley Face - Your account is in good standing. Current Principal $0. Accrued Interest: $62,935.90
5/28/23: MOHELA - Accrued Interest: $0
Total Forgiven: $294,558 + federal income tax savings of $89,890 because, thanks to former Senator Carl Levin, PSLF is not taxable. Total value: $384,488. Remember, amount borrowed: $115,488. In theory, I should have earned far more and not needed PSLF. Unfortunately, life doesn't always go as planned. People make honest mistakes, have health issues or simply aren't career-savvy enough to maximize the earnings potential for a given occupation. In this common situation, the egregious compounding interest causes people to be prisioners to their student loan debt. I never had children because we couldn't afford them 20 years ago and now it's way too late. This is someone who's a CPA with a MBA. In retrospect, I should have just gotten an associate degree at a community college and then pass the IRS Enrolled Agent exam. I have friends who did that earn and earn the same as me.
