2023.06.01 13:26 WereBully Not being able to leave the house is making me miserable

I don't know if I want or even deserve a puppy anymore. I have a 4 m/o sighthound I've had since he was 12 weeks.
We've worked extremely hard on crate training, and when I'm in the house - even if I'm out of sight - he is totally fine. He sleeps like a baby.
But when I leave the house, it's like a switch flips. I know he's just anxious, and he's just a baby, but it's so hard to take. He'll be fine for about an hour or so (I usually won't go for more than 1 1/2, NEVER more than or up to 3 hours at a time. This is a once or twice a week thing, it's not like I'm leaving him daily. We gradually worked up to this.), I've recorded him before, but will then go into a barking fit that won't stop until I'm back. I know it's not because he has to pee because he's able to hold it for longer than that even when loose in the house now and does a great job at it.
What makes it hard is he won't do it every time. It gets my hopes up. I am never happier than when I come back from grocery shopping to him sleeping. But about 50% of the time, I come back to furious barking.
I have neighbors above me and to one side of me, and the thought of getting a noise complaint or making them unhappy is giving me severe anxiety. I just don't go out anymore. It makes him happier and it means I don't have to be anxious about the neighbors. But I'm sure you can imagine (or know from experience.... lol) never being able to leave the house is exhausting. I want to be able to go grab groceries or say hi to my parents without being afraid that he's losing his mind with me gone.
The breaking point for me was last night. I wanted to go to the movies and have a break for a little bit, it's something I'd been looking forward to for a long while. He had been at daycare for 10 hours beforehand and played HARD, and we spent some time with the flirt pole at home afterwards, so I thought he'd be tired out and take a nap. I gave him a frozen raw bone to keep him occupied until he decided to sleep and was back in about 2 1/2 hours (10 minute drive each way, 2 hour movie with no trailers). I came back to barking that I could hear from outside my front door. Not knowing how long it was going on has made me feel just about terrified, and beyond guilty. I don't want to torture the poor thing, and don't want to torture my neighbors either. But I want to have a bit of a life at least once a month. I know I'll probably never leave for that long again, for as long as I have this dog, lol. I learned my lesson.
I don't know if I'm asking too much of him, and again I know that he's a baby. I might've pushed things too much by being gone for that long and for that I feel terrible. But he's done great with crate training otherwise and I felt certain that he'd be tired enough to let me have some time away.
I can't spend every single hour of my life either shut in at home or with the dog at daycare... will things ever get better? Am I a shitty owner? Am I selfish for this? Should I just get a cat? I love him SO much and he's perfect aside from the crate barking, so this is just beyond hard on me.

2023.06.01 13:24 omw2poop i’m finally over you

i’ve failed to pass another day with No contact and by now, you’ll probably won’t trust me that this is going to be my last message to you. You don’t have to reply. I’m not expecting a reply. I’m able to process my thoughts properly now and i just want to let you know. You can read it or don’t.
I got my groceries today. I took myself out for a brunch. I’m going to go to the cinema by myself and booked two concerts to go. Oh, these things are not too hard to do it myself. I was happy before i met you so I can be happy without you - right?
You made me more comfortable and convenient w ur support and help. I guess that was getting unhealthy as well. I was doing so well w my work and study and was feeling like i’m finally back on my track and the person i love is here w me and we can finally grow together. But little did i know what you were feeling at that time. I’m sorry.
You know, you were my sweet boy. so so sweet. so kind hearted. so selfless and so lovable. There are so many adjectives that I can use on you to describe how lucky i am to have you and how amazing you are. You motivated me to try harder. You inspired me and you taught me so many things. You helped me in ways things i would’ve had so much difficulties to achieve by myself. You took me places and we created memories that i wouldn’t want it with anyone else. I’m not sure if u realised but you made me feel at peace.
I keep rewinding every single moment that i was mad at you and why i cried bc u forgot something i asked, or bc u didn’t get me coffee or literally anything that’s not a big deal really. I was too much for you. You were giving too much and I was asking for more. I now realised that i was in need of love and care from you so much that it was hurting you.
There were so many times i should’ve just kept things to myself instead of saying everything out loud in first instance. There were just so many things that got wrong - wrong decisions.
but we both agreed it was both our faults. Even if you just once tell me truly, honestly about how u were feeling like dating w me is like walking on an eggshell, and that i’ve became more and more obsessive w you and u dont like this, and that u feel suffocated in this rs and u were loving me less and less.
you know what ? maybe u did tell me in some other ways. Or maybe i should’ve noticed that or maybe u should’ve communicated to me.
Either way, it’s over.
it hurts me knowing that i’m not worthy of confrontation. i don’t deserve explanations and reasoning. I don’t deserve to fix my mistakes and get a second chance. Or maybe you’re right that you’re simply just not ready for a relationship.
You hurt me so many ways during this past few days and maybe that’s nothing compared to what i made you felt this whole time. I still remember you looking at ur work notifications on ur phone when i was crying and that’s how i knew you really just want to focus on your work and how unimportant and unbothered for you our last moment is. That was the cut for me too. To finally let you go.
I won’t pressure you by saying this is just right person wrong time. But you can expect me to be a better person. And i know whatever you’re working towards, you’ll surely get there one day.
I will see you when we both can be ourselves again and are ready to speak in the same love languages and our goals align. Till then.

2023.06.01 13:19 tiuicreuking João Almeida to O JOGO: "I'm close to the top and I can get where I want to be

João Almeida a O JOGO: ″Estou perto do topo e posso chegar onde quero″

It was a day in A-dos-Francos to get to know the world of João Almeida. JOGO visited the origins of the man who led Portugal to the first podium of the Vuelta a Italia, saw the monument of homage that Sister Matilde usually visits several times and entered the house where João grew up, now enlarged by his father, Dário, a mechanic by profession.

What does homecoming taste like?
- I haven't been here for a long time. I walked around Andorra, where I now live and spend most of the year. Afterwards, I was in Sierra Nevada, on an internship with the team. I spend less and less time here and it feels good to come here in winter, enjoy the climate and see my parents and the rest of the family. It feels good to rest, especially after a completed goal. If I hadn't hit him, mentally I'd keep looking for something. I wouldn't be satisfied. But having reached the podium, having won a stage and also the white jersey, I feel calm with myself.
In 2022 this period went wrong, imagine.
-There was a lot of frustration. A lot of training time, recovery time, which went down the drain due to covid-19. We'll never know, but I think I would have made the podium in that Giro.
Was this third place the payback for that failure?
-It was, and especially with these rivals, Roglic and Thomas. It's even more special. They are great runners, they have great honors and a lot of class, both outside and on the bike.
Do you give more importance to the podium or the fact that you were just over a minute away from winning?
-That minute of difference perhaps corresponds to a year or two of evolution. We're close. It was a Giro with some peculiarities, such as falls, illnesses, withdrawals. Several rivals left, but it's natural selection. It's part of the race. But I was very happy with the result, and with the times, because they are good indicators. In the future, I can get where I want. I'm still not at Joaquim Agostinho's level, but it was a good step. I have ten million people with me.
Where do you stand against your rivals?
-I don't put myself at the top of the tops, but I'm close. I'm leveling up. I place myself in the top 10 worldwide. Pogacar, Roglic, Thomas, Evenepoel and Simon Yates are ahead.
And he still won a stage that he wanted for a long time.
-Experience in the Giro is essential. It's a long test. He had been close to the podium and that gave him extra strength. It had four second places and a few thirds. I was completely happy, it was amazing. There are no words. It was a mythical stage, very hard. It gives confidence and already believed in the rose, but after gaining even more. You are there, against the best, and you prove that you are at a great level. It's the most important victory, it's the one that will mark me. More than an overview of the Tour of Poland.
And reinforced belief in the pink sweater?
-In the following days, the opponents showed themselves to be strong and things became fairer. Even against the clock, he believed it was possible.
Colleague and friend: "I won and Pogacar sent me a message"
"The most beautiful messages were from those who helped me a lot, from those who were part of the journey", says João Almeida. But Tadej Pogacar, two-time champion of the Tour de France, was not indifferent: "Pogacar sent me a message when I won the stage. He congratulated me and even told me to attack and keep the rose. gives more motivation". Joxean Matxín, sporting director, was also happy: "He was very satisfied with the performance, with my evolution. We are all on the right path".
"Cycling is like Formula 1, every tire makes a difference"
João Almeida rode with the best in the Giro time trials and had a notable evolution compared to 2022. “We worked more in the wind tunnel, we improved the position, but we are always conditioned by the material we have. great leap. It's the materials that make the difference in the result. Cycling is more or less like Formula 1, each tire makes the difference. That's why racing records from 20 years ago are beaten", he detailed, rejecting having lost weight and, consequently, also skills in the chrono: "I've been practically the same since 2021. Maybe I have more muscle definition and that helps with the sprint. It helped to win a stage and helps with the chrono, because there are more watts than I generate. But it's all a question of aerodynamics. The weight doesn't count".

2023.06.01 13:19 cwcobblestone “Day by Day, Month by Month, Year by Year,” Part 1

“Day by Day, Month by Month, Year by Year,” Part 1
by c.w. cobblestone
A wimp chronicles the femdom/cuck relationship between him, his beloved Molly and her lover DeShawn. Here are the first six months.


January 1

Well, the calendar may have changed but nothing else has. Molly is still in love with DeShawn. They’re still openly flaunting their affair in front of friends and family. I’m still kissing up to both of them and praying they’ll continue to let me hang around. So far, so good; the wedding’s still on for June, and everyone seems to be finding their roles in this three-way relationship. Unfortunately, my role is being their bitch. But Molly’s still here — that’s the important thing. I thought for sure when DeShawn came into the picture and stole her heart that she’d run off with him. But to my great relief, she says she wants to go through with the wedding while also maintaining her relationship with DeShawn. She says we’re now a “poly triad.” I know she’s playing me for a fool and is only marrying me because I earn six figures. But I don’t care. I love her and would do anything to keep her. Anything. Full stop. The ceremony is scheduled for June 8th, and my New Year’s resolution is to not fuck it up.

January 3

Molly didn’t say when she’d be home from the New Year’s Eve party at DeShawn’s friend’s house, but I didn’t expect her to be gone this long. I’m starting to get worried. Molly’s a big girl and can take care of herself, but DeShawn runs with a rough crowd.

January 4

Crisis averted. Molly’s been holed up in DeShawn’s apartment partying, thank goodness. After she texted me and told me to bring cognac and Burger King, I’d hoped to spend at least a few seconds with my beloved fiancé for the first time this year. Alas, I never even laid eyes on her. DeShawn answered my knock, snatched the bags from my hand and slammed the door in my face after throwing out a flippant “thanks, bitch.”

January 5

Molly finally came home but she was only here long enough to change clothes and bitch at me about her car being down to a quarter tank of gas. I thought about telling her she hasn’t been home for me to gas her car up but I wisely kept my mouth shut and volunteered to fill her tank right then. She said she was in a hurry, though, and rushed back out. I’m guessing she was either headed to the club or back to DeShawn’s place, although she didn’t tell me where she was going, and I sure as hell didn’t ask. As far as she’s concerned it’s none of my business what she does — my job is to sit at home and wait for her like a good little toady, ready to kiss her little ass and put up with her shit when she gets back.

January 7

I kept dinner warm until finally putting it away at 9. Even if Molly does make it home tonight, she’ll most likely be with DeShawn, and they won’t be in the mood to eat. I can always heat up something later if they want a post-coital snack.

January 9

When I got home from work nobody was there, although two bags of DeShawn’s dirty laundry were waiting for me in the living room. Molly had me do his clothes a few weeks ago and now the arrogant bastard apparently thinks it’s my permanent job. I thought about just letting it sit there — then common sense took over. The last thing I want to do is piss him off and give him an excuse to kick my ass again. So, swallowing what little pride I had left, I washed and carefully ironed the clothes of the man who’s fucking my fiancé. How pathetic is that?

January 10

My buddy Tim called to tell me he saw Molly making out with DeShawn at the Alexis Club last night. I turned red but gave my speech about how our arrangement allows her to see other men. Tim must be the 10th person to call since Molly and DeShawn started openly dating. I wish my supposed girlfriend and her “black king” would keep their tryst on the down-low but they said they wanted to take their relationship to the next level and I don’t get a vote. With everything that goes on in the world these days, I’d hoped their affair wouldn’t be a big deal, but I’m finding that people aren’t as open-minded as they claim to be. I’m losing friends and alienating family over this “poly” situation. Tim sure sounded disgusted. I guess I can’t blame him — if I was my friend, I’d probably be just as outraged at how Molly and DeShawn treat me, and how I put up with it like a sap loser. I imagine it must be painful for my friends and family to watch, but I wish they’d try to see it from my point of view. I love Molly with all my heart. She hurts me, sure. But I’m happier than I’ve ever been since she came into my life. Why can’t people understand that? If I can accept her and the things she does to me, why can’t everyone else?

January 13

DeShawn spent the night last night. He and Molly were already hammered when they got back from the club but they wanted another round. They also wanted privacy, so after I served drinks, DeShawn handed me his key and told me to go clean his apartment. I said “yes sir” and hauled ass out of there. When DeShawn tells me to do something, I don’t fuck around. The guy dislikes me to start with, so I try not to give him any reason to fuck me up. The first time Molly brought him home, I attempted to man up and confront him. I won’t ever make that mistake again. I like having teeth too much.

January 14

For the second night in a row, DeShawn stayed over. Molly got mad because I hadn’t bought the bottle of wine she’d wanted so she slapped me across the face several times, cutting my nose with her engagement ring. I got blood all over my favorite shirt, and she yelled at me about that, too, much to her boyfriend’s amusement. Molly is getting meaner by the day and DeShawn keeps egging her on. He loves the situation he’s carved out for himself — he knows he could steal her from me any time he wants but he enjoys having me around. In addition to bankrolling the affair, I represent the spoils of his victory; I’m the defeated, shamed white boy whose nose is constantly rubbed in the dirt while he enjoys his prize, my beautiful fiancé. That’s why he’s so brazen about taking Molly to all the places frequented by my friends and family. He wants everyone to know that Molly is in love with him, and that I’m pathetically hanging around paying the bills and serving as the beta in this budding “poly triad” of ours. Around town, it’s making me either a laughingstock or an object of pity. I’m not sure which is worse.

January 17

I got into a big argument with my brother Joel today after he called to tell me he saw Molly and DeShawn at the Towne Theatre “acting like a pair of animals in heat.” He and the rest of the family have been pressuring me to leave her ever since DeShawn mopped up the floor with Joel last month. The stupid fuck tried to tell the former Carver State linebacker to stop embarrassing the family by openly carrying on with Molly. DeShawn doesn’t like being told what to do. Joel found that out the hard way. His broken nose just healed.

January 20

Nobody was at the condo when I got home from the firm, although I could tell DeShawn had been over, given the wet spots all over the crumpled bedding in the master bedroom. These days, the only reasons I go into Molly’s room are to clean, change cum-stained sheets, and wipe her boyfriend’s piss stains off the toilet rim in the master bathroom. Molly says her bedroom suite is reserved for “real men” and that I have no business being in there unless it’s to clean.

January 24

Molly dropped some devastating news today. She says DeShawn will be going on the honeymoon in June and I’ll be staying home. Also, we had planned to take a Mediterranean cruise, but since DeShawn’s great-grandmother was from St. Thomas and he’s always wanted to go down there, she told me to switch the arrangements. I was bawling like a baby but I clicked onto the travel site and made the required changes. Since the wedding isn’t for six months, there was no problem adjusting the plans, although it killed me inside to do it.

January 26

Molly told me to pack her bags because she was headed to Atlanta for a week to hang out with DeShawn’s cousins. So, now, just like that, I’m not going to see my beloved fiancé until next Sunday. I don’t think she has any idea how much she’s breaking my heart with this affair of hers, but if I told her she probably wouldn’t care — she’d probably think it was funny. That’s how cruel she’s become. DeShawn brings out the worst in her. After he told her that it turns him on when she’s mean to me, she’s been looking for reasons to dog me. He usually rewards her cruelty by fucking the taste out of her mouth — and that makes her want to treat me even worse. Molly is finding out how much naughty fun it can be to make my life miserable, knowing that I’m so hopelessly in love with her I’ll put up with anything she dishes out. Deep down, she probably knows what she’s doing to me is wrong — but I bet that just makes the whole thing even more delightfully wicked. My former angel is lost in a decadent, BBC-fueled alternative dimension where being bad is good and my pain is hilarious.

February 6

Molly told me to go by her mom’s house after work tomorrow to clean. She says I should plan on that being one of my regular weekly duties from now on. I’m getting sick of being everybody’s fucking maid. I’m stuck cleaning DeShawn’s apartment once a week now. Last week, Molly had me wash her best friend’s car after her boyfriend got drunk and puked in it. My fiancé has pimped me out to her friends recently for myriad other chores — cleaning up dogshit, dropping off library books, picking up drycleaning. Since DeShawn came into the picture, Molly has gleefully let her friends and family know that I’m nothing but her little bitch — and her boyfriend’s little bitch, too. She loves recounting the night she brought DeShawn back to the condo for the first time, and I tried to make a stand by telling him to leave. He busted me in the eye, knocking me to the floor, and then kicked me in the ribs until I begged him to stop. The whole time, Molly watched with a glazed look in her eye and fingers in her crotch. After DeShawn bitch-slapped me one last time, he dragged my fiancé into the bedroom and they screamed up a storm while I lay on the living room floor sobbing. That was the first and only time I ever tried standing up to DeShawn, as Molly delights in telling her friends. “DeShawn runs shit around here,” she says to anyone who’ll listen.

February 8

Darlene is such a cunt. It’s easy to see where Molly gets her snootiness from. After I left the firm yesterday, I headed straight for my future mother-in-law’s house and started cleaning. I busted my ass all night and didn’t finish until after 11pm. Did I get a thank-you? Hell no. The whole time I was there, all Darlene did was belittle me and taunt me about DeShawn. Before I left, she pulled down her sweats and showed me her pussy, asking if I remembered what one looked like. It was so embarrassing, I just wanted to run out of there. But I knew not answering her might pose a problem, so I just faked a smile and said, “it has been a while.”

February 11

There’s nothing more embarrassing than standing outside the dressing room at Victoria’s Secret clutching your fiancé’s purse while she tries on sexy outfits to wear for her lover on Valentine’s Day — especially when she made it known to the salesladies that the lingerie is for someone other than the schmuck holding the bag. I wanted to die when I paid for the purchases, with the women all smirking and making snide remarks. There was no reason for Molly to tell the staff that the lingerie was for another man, other than pure cruelty. On the ride home, I hung my head and bit my lip, doing my best to keep from crying. Molly yelled at me and told me to stop moping, so I sat up straight in the passenger seat and pretended to watch the scenery as it zoomed by.

February 15

Valentine’s Day sucks when you’re a beta. I cleaned the condo spotless and fixed a special dinner for two. Once the candles were lit and both plates were full, DeShawn gave me his mother’s address and told me to report to her house for maid duty. As usual, I said, “yes, sir” and obeyed without hesitation. Jeez, I thought my mother-in-law was bad — Cassandra is ten times worse. From the second I stepped into her house she made it clear that while she absolutely loves Molly and supports her relationship with her son, she despises white males. Therefore, she said, she despises me by default. It took seven hours to clean Cassandra’s house, which was enough time for her to slap me six times and spit in my face twice after finding fault with my cleaning. When I was finished, she made me stand in the hallway with my legs spread and my hands on my head before kicking me in the nuts as hard as she could. After I collapsed in pain, she told me to kiss her shoe and thank her. I complied, and she kicked me in the head and said “now, get the fuck out, white boy.” I’m praying Molly doesn’t add cleaning Cassandra’s house to my regular duties. That woman has a lot of anger bottled up inside her, and after only one night I can already tell she loves taking out those frustrations on a lily-white ass.

February 16

Well, fuck me. Exactly what I didn’t want — DeShawn says from now on I have to go by his mom’s house once a week to clean. WTF, man. So, with my recurring appointment at Darlene’s house and DeShawn’s apartment, that’s three nights a week I’ll now be cleaning other people’s houses, in addition to my chores at home and all the other errands I’m sent on. For Molly and DeShawn, this polyandrous threesome is proving to be a sexy, relaxing lifestyle — but for me, it’s demoralizing and exhausting.

February 23

Per Molly’s orders, I asked the head of the firm if I can pick up extra cases, or stay late to help the other attorneys with research. Molly wants me to make as much money as I can between now and the wedding because she says she and DeShawn want to “honeymoon in style.” She says things like that because she thinks it’s funny to hurt my feelings. Sometimes I wish I was strong enough to get out of this abusive relationship. I guess I’m like those battered wives who keep going back to their husbands. Molly treats me like shit but I take it. With a smile. A fake smile, but a smile nonetheless.

March 19

Mr. Berkowitz accommodated my request and I’ve been working 14-hour days for the past few weeks. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, since I get to stay away from home longer, thus avoiding abuse from my fiancé and her lover. Plus, my last few checks have been huge. The bad news is, every dime of that extra money will go toward ensuring that Molly and DeShawn “honeymoon in style.” And despite all the extra hours, my domestic load hasn’t lightened one iota. I’m still expected to clean Darlene’s house every Monday, Cassandra’s every Wednesday, and DeShawn’s apartment every Thursday. If I get behind on my chores at home, I know Molly will cut me no slack, and if DeShawn’s around there’s a good chance she’ll slap the shit out of me if something doesn’t get done. She loves showing off for her man by being bitchy to me, and it drives him crazy when she does it. So, I’ve been killing myself to keep up with everything. It’s been rough, but I’ve managed. Who needs sleep?

March 26

I’m completely wrung out physically and emotionally. Last night was hands-down the worst night of my life. I served as the “bitch boy” at a party thrown by one of DeShawn’s friends and it was pure fucking hell. Molly made me wear a pair of her panties to the party, and when we got there I was told to strip, other than the pink, lacy underwear. There were about a dozen people there, and I spent the night serving drinks and having them pinch my ass and make fun of me. But the worst part was when DeShawn got drunk and forced me to kneel in the kitchen and suck his dick in front of everyone. I’ve been in complete anguish ever since. I can’t get the taste out of my mouth or the thought out of my head that I am now officially a cocksucker. Molly and several other people at the party filmed my debasement with their cellphones, so I’m sure the terrible moment will haunt me forever. I suspect there’ll be a lot more such horrible moments, too, because after DeShawn squirted all over my face and hair, he seemed pleased, bragging to his friends that I was a natural. He didn’t allow me to clean up, either, saying it would be “disrespectful,” so I spent the rest of the evening fetching drinks with dried cum on my face and tears in my eyes. It was a mortifying experience, something I wouldn’t have wished on my most hated enemy. I suppose it could have been worse — a couple of DeShawn’s friends also wanted blowjobs, but he told them I was “his bitch” and therefore off-limits. Molly told me I should feel proud to be DeShawn’s bitch. I lied to her and said I was grateful. In truth, I wanted to die when he said that. He’s starting to see me as his property.

April 2

During lunch yesterday, Molly told me that she and DeShawn had decided to let me come along on the honeymoon. After I fell over myself thanking her, she smirked and said, “April Fool’s.” DeShawn got a kick out of my crestfallen expression. He told me he had just the thing to cheer me up, and then made me suck his dick. He’s been having me do that a lot since the party last week.

April 7

DeShawn’s lease on his apartment is up April 19, and last night I was informed that he’d be moving in with us after that. This isn’t exactly a surprise, and I’d been bracing for it — although when Molly made it official, it was still quite the gut-punch. She said I’ll be responsible for moving everything, and that I should start packing stuff the next time I clean DeShawn’s apartment, so I don’t have to do it all at once.

April 10

As if things couldn’t get worse, DeShawn told me yesterday that he’d be converting the guest room into his mancave. When I asked him where I was going to sleep, he said “in the bathtub for all I care.” I don’t know if he was joking or not, though, because he laughed when he said it. Whether he was serious or not, if he takes over the guest bedroom I won’t have anywhere to sleep, since that’s the only other bedroom in the condo besides the master suite, and I doubt I’ll be allowed to bunk down in there with them. Why should I be allowed a place to sleep? I’m just the guy who pays all the bills.

April 12

Well, the mystery over where I’ll be sleeping is solved. Molly says I can put a dog bed in the hall closet. She told me to go buy one now and to break down the bed in the guest room, so everything will be ready for when DeShawn moves in. So, I guess my days of sleeping in a bed like a normal human being are over. A dog bed in the closet??? WTF.

April 14

I keep hitting new lows. When I was at her house last night, Cassandra made me drink her piss. I was in the bathroom scrubbing the floor when she came in brandishing a plastic cup. She sat on the toilet and held the cup under her pussy, filling it with urine. Then, she handed it to me and told me to say “cheers!” before downing the cup in one gulp. I managed to obey although I almost threw up. She told me to thank her for the honor, which I did with all the respect I could muster. Later, when I’d resumed my cleaning, I overheard Cassandra on the phone bragging to her friend about what she’d done. I got a chill when she said, “sure, come on over when he cleans next Wednesday and I’ll make him drink yours, too.”

April 16

I keep thinking about what Cassandra told her friend on the phone, and debating whether I should say anything to DeShawn about it. At the party last month, he’d told everyone that I wasn’t sexually available because I was his “bitch,” but I’m not sure if that rule extends to his mother making me drink her piss — or, worse, making me drink some stranger’s piss. I haven’t worked up the nerve to say anything, though, and I probably won’t. DeShawn might get pissed if he thinks I’m dissing his mom.

April 17

Ugh, I can’t get this Cassandra situation out of my head. One thing that’s bothering me: Is her friend a man or a woman? It was impossible to tell from hearing just her half of the conversation. I suppose it doesn’t matter — DeShawn has me sucking his dick constantly now, anyway, and Cassandra’s probably going to regularly have me drinking her piss since the genie’s out of the bottle, so what difference does it make whether the person whose pee I have to drink is male or female? Piss is piss, right?

April 19

Yet another demoralizing milestone. DeShawn had me lick his ass last night for the first time. He had bits of toilet paper stuck to his bunghole and I gagged when it touched my tongue — which earned me a severe bitch-slap for being “disrespectful.” But I managed to get through it in one piece. As I do when giving blowjobs, I just closed my eyes and drifted to my happy place, blocking out the terrible world and concentrating on the dialogue from a favorite movie. Last night it was “A League of Their Own.” There’s no crying in baseball or when you’re tossing your fiancé’s boyfriend’s salad.

April 20

Well, DeShawn’s all moved in. Of course, I did all the work while he sat on his ass and directed. I had to throw out 90% of my stuff since there’s no longer room. All that’s left are my suits for work and my laptop; everything else got shitcanned, including my high school yearbooks, family mementos and almost all my casual clothes. Oh, well. I didn’t really need that stuff anyway.

April 21

When I went to Cassandra’s after work to clean last night, she introduced me to her friend, a huge woman named Violet. The lady seemed eager to make me drink her piss, although she was shy and went into the bathroom alone to pee in the cup. Cassandra made me kneel down and drink every drop before thanking her friend for the honor. Then, Cassandra decided to show off, so she made me stand still with my hands on my head while she and her friend took turns kicking me in the balls. When they finally got tired of abusing me, I was released to clean the house while they chatted in the living room.

May 2

We’ve got a new household routine. Almost every night now, DeShawn will holler “hey, bitch, come give me my propers,” which means I have to find a spot behind him and lick his ass. As you might imagine, it’s quite demoralizing to give DeShawn his “propers” when my fiancé is right there watching. Between the constant blowjobs and rim-jobs, I can’t say I don’t have a sex life anymore. It’s not exactly the kind of sex I would’ve chosen, but I do get a lot of action these days. My mouth does, anyway.

May 5

I overheard Molly talking to her mom on the phone about having kids with DeShawn. He apparently wants a big family, and she told her mom she’s glad she’ll have me around to change diapers. As strange as it seems, I felt a twinge of satisfaction hearing that. At least it means Molly wants to keep me around long-term.

May 9

Well, I feared this day was coming. DeShawn has decided to take over the wedding. He announced last night that he’s going to be my best man and he said he may get his buddies to replace my brothers in the wedding party. He says it’s going to be a “poly wedding.” I called Joel and told him he was out as best man and that DeShawn would be handling those duties. My brother cussed me out and hung up on me.

May 11

I got into a huge argument with Mom and Dad on the phone today. They said they never want to speak to me again. This has been brewing for some time in my family. I wish things were different, but they made me choose. I chose Molly. They say they can’t stand seeing how she treats me. Well, I’ve learned to live with it — fuck them if they can’t.

May 12

Now Joel and Ron aren’t coming to the wedding, so I’ve pretty much alienated my entire family. They say Molly’s making a fool out of me by having DeShawn replace Joel as my best man. I told Joel to talk to DeShawn if he has a problem with it, and he shut up right quick. The dumbass learned his lesson a few months ago when he tried to tell DeShawn to stop embarrassing the family by being so open about his affair with Molly. I learned the same lesson after Molly brought her boyfriend home for the first time and I was stupid enough to protest. The lesson? You don’t question DeShawn.

May 24

DeShawn has changed the wedding vows. It’s already written that I will promise to obey Molly, but DeShawn added the phrase “and I will obey DeShawn as well.” Then, since this will be a “poly wedding,” DeShawn is going to say a few words, pledging to love and honor Molly until death do they part. The magistrate Molly chose is quite progressive and when she ran the new vows past him, he said they’re great. The ceremony is going to be embarrassing as hell, but the whole wedding’s going to be a fucking nightmare anyway. I’ve made up my mind: I’m going to just square my shoulders and get through it, because when it’s all over Molly will be my bride. I can’t wait. She’s in love with another man but I don’t care. She’ll be my wife, and that means everything to me.

2023.06.01 13:17 Far_Security_7179 Hi, what you guys think about my build

Feel kind of overpowered and pricey, probably selling my Laptop will help tank some cost but I just wanna make sure I took the right decision, also my main monitor I got it in discount so that was very good.
I went for the nzxt because of the display but need to buy some controllers for like 100$ for the nzxt because they don't have a larger version like corsair for 50$.
I was thinking downgrading from 1440p to 1080p because I don’t feel I have good vision in a big screen I went from 17 inch to 27 inch and I feel is just cannot look around while gaming because I like to play competitive a lot and I like to have everything on my sight so I think I’m gonna change to 1080p 24 inch but I feel is to overpower for my current pc Idk if I should downgrade my pc or keep everything the same and just change monitor and fans to not waste my money.
Also I what you think what should save my money or you think this build is really solid, I like to play Mobas, FPS and kinda heavy games like tarkov, arma 3 and Dayz sometimes probably thinking in going into more heavy games sometimes.

2023.06.01 13:15 Cattlemenswife How to Set Oil Maintenance to 15k miles

How can I reset the warning to 10K or better yet 15k?
I have a 2021 Sienna Platinum and get synthetic oil, so only need a change every 10-15k miles. I get a Service Required warning - WHICH BLOCKS THE SPEEDOMETER - every 5k because Toyota wants me to rotate tires and all kinds of other costly extras every 5k. I do that myself. I like the reminder, I don't like having my car's dashboard rendered non-functional.
*I do know how to "reset" the maintenance message in the dashboard, but that only silences it for about 2 weeks, then it's back. It has made it so I ignore ALL messages, which is not a good habit. I'd like to just set it so that its actually useful.

2023.06.01 13:08 peachtea33 Making an ADHD friendly recipe book for my partner

Hello all,
TLDR: I'm assembling a recipe book for my partner and wanted some advice on how to present it in an ADHD friendly way.
My partner and I both have ADHD; we have different issues around food and cooking.
I'm a fussy eater, sensitive to textures and have intolerances and IBS. I can be a bit intense about food hygiene and I make food as my job (have done for 6-7 years) so I'm a very competent cook. I love cooking.
Partner finds cooking stressful, and only enjoys it when he's got a whole afternoon to plan, purchase ingredients, etc. He finds juggling different steps and timings really hard, so he mostly just makes convenience food things. When he lived alone he often skipped meals, or ate takeout and leftovers.
When he cooks, he asks me lots of questions (so I end up doing the mental labour of feeding us even when I'm not cooking). Unless we have the exact ingredients for a recipe, and the recipe is a one pot meal and the timings don't overlap, then he gets very anxious sometime's to the point of panic attack.
It's made more difficult by the fact that when we first moved in together I was in a bad place mentally and a lot of my anxious behaviours centred around food (e.g. refusing to eat things that were prepared for me, refusing to eat unless we could make a specific meal, having panic attacks when I was hungry and tired, etc).
I've been to a whole load of therapy (which Partner helped pay for) and resolved my anxiety around food but obviously it still triggers an anxious response for my partner when it's his turn to cook, which compounds with his existing feelings of anxiety around cooking. Last week, he made pasta with jar sauce and frozen meatballs and he was very very anxious during and after. I give him positive comments about his cooking whenever he cooks or thank him for feeding us (he always thanks me too).
I buy the food, plan the meals and cook almost every night. If I'm not up to cooking, we get a takeout most times. Partner knows this isn't a fair balance, and he wants to be more involved. I've tried getting him more involved, but grocery stores make him anxious and he's pretty nonchalant about what he eats, which means he'll often say he'll eat 'whatever' when I try to involve him in meal planning. We had a big talk about how anxious cooking makes him, and I want to try to help by making something he can reference (instead of asking me), to reduce his anxiety and lighten the mental load on me. He works from home 4/5 days, and I am a teacher so it would be nice to have food ready when I get home a few nights a week.
I want to make a little recipe book with some of the meals we both enjoy, but traditional recipe books aren't very ADHD friendly (no pictures for the steps, lots of text on a page, lots of steps/ingredients/etc, pages can be a bit boring so it's not very dopamine inducing to look at, etc).
I'm thinking...
Does anyone have any suggestions for how I could present the information in an ADHD friendly way, that's easy to follow, etc?

2023.06.01 13:08 Keanu_Jeeves_ Rage Post: The App SUCKS at Downloading Videos

I’m so FREAKING tired of having to pause and resume downloads to get it to download, or when that doesn’t work having to fully delete all my downloading videos and then go find them all again to restart downloading, or when even that doesn’t work just having to wait a few hours and try again to get it to work. I regularly have to go into zero signal areas so I like to keep content downloaded and it is so unbelievably frustrating that downloading videos only works right the first time about 50% of the time. It’s been like this for years and I’ve had a few different phones and make sure all updates are installed. How are they such a big platform (one of the biggest if not the biggest) and still have not figured this out? It’s legit pathetic, and I probably find it even more frustrating since I pay like 40/mo for a premium family plan so to me it’s like a service I pay for. FIGURE IT OUT YOUTUBE, ITS BEEN NEARLY 20 YEARS

For now I will pretend to be it as I can then feel myself in that mindset and decide if it is peaceful, ethanteric, ethantericity is what I want then I can feel myself in the mindset of ignorance by pretending to be it, but I can't so I will instead become entirely ignorant, instead of just ignorant in some ways like those people which is what I originally intended. Oh well, who's keeping count, certainly not me, or the big O. No one should keep count, they should just be ignorant and pass.
Time to end this potentially "copied" write on a high note, a high high note, can you please take me, (interlude plays: "take me while i'm young and jew"), then take me, and I will be blissfully unaware , in the thought that I have become fully ignorant, although I wouldn't be James Hargreaves, so maybe not being is the true way to ignorance, or at least the true way to a state of having nothing. Lets sing the blues, let us sing the jews, we sing until the sound of silence caresses our souls and we drift away to the promised sand

2023.06.01 13:06 nathanasauruss Periods still terrible after surgery

Hi! I am 18F and I had my lap surgery with an endo specialist around the end of September of 2023. Obviously, my first period after surgery was horrendous as expected. My OBGYN put me on the Nexplanon implant to hopefully help my periods for the time being and keep the endo from coming back faster (Don’t remember when I got it inserted, but longer than a month after surgery). My periods were ok for a while, lighter than I have ever had before and not nearly as much pain, but still very nauseous. Now recently my past few periods, at least for a couple months now, have been terrible, especially the one I am currently going through. Excruciating pain, very heavy bleeding (I have bled through the nightly big pads a couple of times), and serious nausea, terrible bloating, hot flashes, light headed. I have contacted OBGYN and they have told me this was normal and that I will have to wait a couple of months for my body to settle. Is this true? Has anyone had the same experience? I am very tired of having to go through this absolute hell, especially the period I am going through as we speak feels as though I am recovering from lap all over again. I have an appointment coming up finally and I am praying something can be done to help me. Would love to hear other people’s experiences after lap and their periods after lap to see if this is abnormal or not. Thanks!

2023.06.01 13:06 JackfruitExpensive48 Im treated badly at Acc

Im on a project with only Portuguese people. The seniors treat me badly and have no patience for knowledge sharing. Sometimes I feel like I’m separated from the group on purpose or they just don’t respect me. I’m the only non Portuguese worker in the team and really working on my kindness as a manager. I dunno what to do but it’s like I’m just a not listed guy speaking in front of an audience that doesn’t give a crap. I decided I would kill them with kindness but it’s taking a tool on my mental health. One day I’ll probably just be a total beatch and own it cuz Im tired. The high end managers treat me well but the ones that do the same as I do and are longer in the project are just not nice. Maybe cuz I’m a foreigner. What should I do? I’ll keep being kind and soft and take the hits, saving proof also cuz I’m not dumb. Or it’s just a cultural thing? Where Europeans are cold and very direct at work and don’t mind much about quality and productive But kind communication. I’ve worked at the big 4 consultancies of the globe and only in Europe people behave like this, in the US and LATAM and even the Asian teams are kinder and more patience.

2023.06.01 13:05 crvenkapica_011 Letnje i zimske gume – razlike i prednosti

Letnje i zimske gume – razlike i prednosti
U mnogim evropskim državama, pa tako i kod nas, zbog različitih godišnjih doba i meteoroloških uslova, vlasnici vozila moraju da menjaju gume. Postoje letnje i zimske gume. Zakonom je propisano da se letnje gume koriste između marta i oktobra, dok zimske gume moraju biti na točkovima od 1-og Novembra do 1-og Aprila.
Po čemu se razlikuju letnje i zimske gume?

Karakteristike letnjih guma

Letnje gume su dizajnirane da budu efikasne za vreme toplih meseci, kada su temperature vazduha i asfalta na putevima visoke. Smeša gume od koje su napravljene je od čvrstih materijala koji pod dejstvom vrućina ne gube svoju konzistenciju i tvrdoću. Osim toga, njihove šare na gazećem sloju nisu duboke kao kod zimskih.
Prednosti letnjih guma su sledeće:

  • Imaju dobro prianjanje na vrućem asfaltu
  • Trenje koje se razvija prilikom kontakta sa toplom površinom puta je relativno malo (kada je trenje veliko, onda se povećava i temperatura samih guma pri čemu može da dođe do deformacija, oštećenja, pa i pucanje gume)
  • Vozilo je stabilno i sa njim se lako upravlja
  • Kočenje je sigurno i pravovremeno
  • Povećavaju efikasnost u potrošnji goriva

Karakteristike zimskih guma

Zimske gume imaju cilj da vozilo zadrži maksimalnu kontrolu i stabilnost tokom hladnih, vlažnih i snežnih jesenjih i zimskih dana.
Za razliku od letnjih, smeša gume koja se koristi za izradu zimskih pneumatika je mekša i mnogo gipkija. Svoju mekoću i elastičnost zadržavaju čak i kada temperature padnu daleko ispod nule. Osim toga, šare na gazećem sloju kod njih su dublje i brojnije kako bi bile u stanju da raspršuju vodu koja se nalazi na putu. Na taj način se stabilnost i prianjanje vozila na vlažnom putu povećava, kao i pravovremeno kočenje i kontrola točkova.
Dizajn i materijal zimskih guma, njihova tvrdoća i dubina šara pomažu i prilikom nabijanja snega i leda koji se nalaze na putu. Kada su u pitanju sneg i led, mora da se istekne da ni najbolje zimske gume nisu svemoguće, ukoliko su sneg i led preduboki i previše klizavi preporučuje se da se stave lanci, koji su isto tako obavezni deo zimske opreme.

Zbog čega treba promeniti gume?

Mnogi vozači zbog klimatskih promena koje su uslovljene globalnim zagrevanjem, razmišljaju da li uopšte da promene svoje gume. Leta su postala sve duža, dok su zime sve kraće i suvlje, sa mnogo malo snega. Promena guma, osim što je zakonska obaveza, je važna iz nekoliko razloga:

1. Sigurnost i udobnost vožnje

Letnje gume, ukoliko se koriste u hladnim danima, kada su temperature niske, a padavine obilne, postaju krte i lomljive, počinju da gube svoj pravilni oblik, na njima se pojavljuju prvo manje a zatim sve veće i veće pukotine. Kao rezultat toga, kočenje i upravljanje vozilom postaje teže i nesigurnije.
Zimske gume, sa druge strane, su namenjene za vožnju u hladnim i vlažnim uslovima. U tim uslovima oni nude najbolje prianjanje na putu, zato što su napravljenei od mekše gume i imaju duboke šare koje sklanjaju vodu ispod točkova i tako savlađuju akvaplaning. Ali, ukoliko temperature porastu, onda se one više troše, oštećuju i gube svoje dobre karakteristike.
Oštećene gume, koji su izgubile svoj pravilan oblik, teže zadržavaju pravac kretanja vozila, prave duži kočioni trag, tokom vožnje poskakuju i izazivaju vibracije na volanu i sistemu za upravljanje. Ove vibracije, osim što narušavaju bezbednost vožnje, mogu da budu i veoma neprijatne za putnike.

2. Efikasna potrošnja goriva

Zimske gume su mekše, njihova šare dublje, što utiče na to da se pri kotrljanju točkova pravi veći otpor i povećava potrošnja goriva. U toplim danima su letnje gume daleko efikasnije, zato što su tvrđe i prave daleko manji otpor pri kretanju. Ako težite uštedama u gorivu, vodite računa o promenu pneumatika u zavisnosti od godišnjeg doba i vremenskih uslova.

3. Produžavanje životnog veka guma

Menjanje guma u skladu sa godišnjim dobima omogućava njihovo ravnomernije trošenje. Zimske gume su mekše od letnjih, što im omogućava bolje prianjanje na hladnim i vlažnim površinama. Međutim, kada porastu temeprature, te mekše smeše se brže troše. Korišćenje zimskih guma tokom leta može rezultirati bržim habanjem i kraćim vekom trajanja.

Još par saveta za kraj

Kada se gume menjaju, mora da se promene sve četiri. Neki vozači, da bi “uštedeli”, promene samo one na prednjim ili zadnjim točkovima u zavisnosti od toga koji točkovi su pogonski. Ali na taj način neće se uštedeti ništa, samo će stabilnost i kontrola nad vozilom biti otežana zbog različitih šara na gazećem sloju.
Promena pneumatika nije teška, potrebna je samo dizalica i poseban ključ za odvrtanje i zavrtanje šarafova. Ali, ako vlasnik sumnja da ima dovoljno fizičke snage i znanja za to, onda ne treba rizikovati nego otići kod majstora. Osim zamene, on će izvršiti i balansiranje i centriranje točkova.
Kada se skinu sa točkova, gume treba pravilno da se odlože na tamnom i suvom mestu.
Ukoliko iznajmljujete vozilo, možete biti u potpunosti mirni što se tiče vrste guma. Rent a car agencije strogo vode računa da sva njihova vozila u svim godišnjim vremenima budu opremljena adekvatnim gumama i da sve bude kako nalažu propisi i zakoni o saobraćaju.

2005 - Trial Day 64
Michael goes to court with Katherine, Joe & Randy
Judge Melville gives the Jury the rules of Jury Deliberations
Michael Jackson sat quietly in court as the 12 jurors were given their instructions ahead of closing arguments from both sides.
"You've heard all of the evidence and you will hear the arguments of attorneys," Judge Rodney Melville told the jury. He told them to make their decision without "pity for or prejudice toward" the defendant.
The eight women & four men who will decide his fate will hear closing arguments today and could begin their deliberations as early as Friday (it is currently Wednesday). Jurors are expected to hammer out their decision behind closed doors for about six hours a day until they reach their verdict or announce a deadlock.
The charges against Jackson consist of four counts of molestation, four counts of giving the boy alcohol in order to abuse him, one count of conspiracy and one of attempted molestation.
Jurors were told they could consider the four alcohol counts as lesser charges of "furnishing alcohol to a minor." This would be considered a misdemeanor and means that the jury would not have to relate the alcohol to any intended molestation.
Judge Melville told jurors not to consider the four videos played in the trial for the truth of any remarks made in them, except for certain statements that prosecutors claim are admissions from Jackson. These statements will be outlined in a document to be provided by prosecutors.
The Judge also instructed the jury on how to consider the past allegations against Jackson. He said that if they determine he does have such a history, "you may but are not required to infer that the defendant had a predisposition" to commit the crimes alleged in this case.
But he added “that is not sufficient in itself to prove he committed the crimes charged
He also told them not to infer anything from the fact Jackson himself had decided not to testify.
Thomas Mesereau will deliver closing arguments for the defense while Deputy District Attorney Ron Zonen is expected to deliver the prosecution’s closing statements.

2008\* - Late in the month, Michael's duet with Akon, "Hold My Hand" is leaked online. Michael is devastated
Longtime recording engineer, Michael Prince, who was working with Jackson at the time “Hold My Hand” leaked, recalls:
“He was truly upset when the song he did with Akon leaked. He would just get this sad look on his face like, how could this happen? Because 20 years ago this would not have happened. And somehow everybody in the world has a copy of it. And that really upset him because he liked that song a lot.”
Akon gave a detailed account of the events surrounding the leak during an appearance on Tavis Smiley’s PBS television show in January 2009:
“Me and Mike did this incredible record called Hold My Hand and the record is amazing. Phenomenal. And the concept was that this would be Mike’s first release off of his new album, and then I would stripe it on my album – on my following release. That way we could have the outlets open for everyone to be able to receive the record. You know, Mike came up with this brilliant marketing launch for the record. You know, he’s the best at launching a record.”
Akon continues:
“He’d have the whole world paying attention in two minutes… And before we could get to that point, the record got leaked over the internet. And we got over 15 million downloads on the song for free. So we couldn’t [release it]. You can’t at that point. Everybody already has the record. But in a way, you gotta look at it like… that’s just a gift to the fans.”

2023.06.01 13:03 Vehicle-Mountain [IWantOut] 33M Europe -> anywhere

My salary is part of the 5% highest in the country. I am tired of working in Europe for a salary where 50% goes to taxes to unemployed people and people that don't want to work, people currently retired, people with kids, etc - I don't get a lot of those benefits while I pay for a big chunk of it. On top of that, due to overpopulation, I can't even get quick access to medical specialists when I do need them with waiting times of weeks and months. Don't get me wrong - I don't mind taxes but please not 50%. In the meantime the rent and housing crisis goes extreme and it's even a lot at my income level while I barely get 50% of whatever pity raise my company decides to give.
I would like to move to a country where I can save properly for retirement, where the salary isn't peanuts, where I'm not taxed to death, where it's safe and there's a good work/life balance.
Singapore? New Zealand? Australia? Canada?
