Like other anon said, standing desks!
They even have adjustable converters for regular desks.
Nepotism, social media influence, and subjectivity.
A lot of the current crop of popular models (Kendall Jenner, Kaia Gerber, the Hadids, etc.) are the children of celebrities and their parents' fame allowed them a foot in the door regardless of whether they deserved it or not.
Social media presence unfortunately trumps genuine talent a lot of the time nowadays. If you're not big on social media, that can affect how many jobs you get in an industry like that. They like big names to draw attention to their brand. And people get big on social media for all kinds of dumb reasons.
And then there's subjectivity too. While I agree with you about today's models, I'm sure there are plenty of people out there that do find them interesting and gorgeous. And they're entitled to their bizarre opinions.
It's just a creepy image. YouTubers promoted this idea that it's possible to contact "Momo" via What's App. Computer illiterate parents are in a panic because they believe "Momo" is real and is telling their kids to commit suicide and self harm.
Idk why but parents love spreading this bullshit.
Honestly I don't think so. I understand the points raised by >>383323
, though in the end it's just gatekeeping and for what? If people are somehow offended that you're dressing up as a character from a show without prior knowledge, ultimately… Whatever…? It doesn't mean shit, everyone will forget before they know it and there are no overarching guidelines on what pieces of clothing or styling you're able to give yourself and certainly not dictated by other randoms, so fuck 'em. Enjoy yourself.
Cosplay has always been a way to broadcast what you're into and make friends with like minds. It doesn't make sense to go as characters you don't love unless you have zero intention of interacting with other fans beyond a thumbs up and a photo.
It's more understandable if you cosplay for money, but cosplay takes a long ass time to put together. Putting your character's show on as background noise while you sew is such a minimal amount of effort, anyone who can't be assed to do that much deserves any hate they get.
I use taxslayer myself, but it's very easy anon.
A few other quick things >if you pay a student loan that is deductible, you'll need your loan issuer to give you a 1098-E, it can save you more than a few bucks depending on how much you've paid into it per year >there's no more mandate on health insurance so you will not be penalized for saying you had none >your bond is small but taxslayer is user friendly in that it will tell you what the different deductible sections are and if your bonds made enough in interest to bother
Sorry to still but I've filed with them every year with no problems. My stats are single, no dependents, student loan, no health insurance towards the end of the year, recently moved back in with parents.
>>383423>are your parents having to file you as a dependent now that you've moved in?
Nope, my parents haven't claimed me as their dependent on their taxes in years. The shorthand is if you're over 24 and they don't provide you with financial support equal to or greater than half of your annual income, you are considered independent.
It might ave something to do with your age or maybe their financial involvement. I'm 27, and moved out my first time when I was 23 (I came back home in November when I broke up with an ex and college was over).
Tax volunteer here, taxslayer is also what we use. VITA (https://tinyurl.com/jtcf3m3
) usually has an income cap, but we do it for free and we can do state returns too.
Per: >>383415>The American Opportunity Credit (from the 1098-E) can actually get you up to $1,000 back in refunds, strongly recommend if you can take it.>Contrary to the beliefs of almost all my clients, the mandate still applies (_next_ year it doesn't), but if you just claim you had health insurance the whole year no one will bother to contest it.
As for if you're a dependent, depends. If you're under 24 at the end of the year and a full time student, yes (qualifying child). If you made less than $4,150, yes. Otherwise, you're not a dependent.
What’s this thing?
It's a bad thing if you like cosplay, yes. That kind of thing is what lowers the quality and ultimately destroys a subculture.https://meaningness.com/geeks-mops-sociopaths>>383517
Because sjws don't like being told that people need to fulfill certain criteria in order to be part of a community. Gatekeeping is important to keep a group together and coherent.
Why is his unusual face actually adorable, ty anon. >>383772
I'm dumb, I didnt think of that search term. Ty as well.
I also found a fairly new and weird channel called "Intelligent Man" who does asmr eating vids that're satirical but he seems cute, if anyone else has my struggle. Almost cringey-cute, but still.
I'm tall (5'11) and I have always preferred short men. I have literally had 1 boyfriend that is taller than me and it only lasted a few months lol. I think that the whole short thing is really exacerbated by TV/movies. >>384174
yeah I think so! Funny you said that because I'm the same way. Like I said earlier I'm tall as fuck and I carry all my weight in my thighs and butt…but my shoulders are not tiny. Not as wide as my hips and got small tits.
Thanks for input. Ig they're not popular but more so than often portrayed, then?
I ask because they're the only men I go for but they continuously reject me so I'm assuming they must have better options. Or is it the height difference (even though it's only a few inches) hang up? Since I've had taller men flirt with me so I know I'm not a complete fuggo myself.
Tall anon, advice on how to date shorter men?
Are the variances in color just based on skintone?
Trust your gut feeling before anything else. Does he give you the creeps? Do you like him? Would you like to be with him?
Don't worry about the attention, if he's not too clingy.
Bear in mind whatever happens, he literally knows where you live.
Sound him out very carefully and take it extremely slowly
You only meed to buy it once and then charge it so it's cost effective, and it's easier to use than a jar of wax.
It doesn't last particularly long and even if you do it carefully you'll probably miss a few hairs when epilating. I've been epilating for several years, and exclusively for 6 months, and I do have a few bald spots on my legs now. I still get ingrowns tho but they may be from the times I shaved, if you get a good quality epilator you shouldn't get them.

any osu players on here, what's the etiquette for playing online? i've been playing osu singleplayer for years because i fucking forgot there was a multiplayer mode. now i want to join, and i did last night but eventually all the other players were telling me to "pass down the host" and i had no clue what to do so i just left the game
Sorry it took me so long to respond! I forgot which thread I posted this lol.
I think that a lot of men sadly have a complex about height, and are somehow insecure or threatened by tall women. For some reason they think they're less of a man for dating a woman taller than them. You're likely not a fuggo at all, the men are just insecure about feeling lesser compared to you.
As for advice well…most men I've dated I met online, and I make it a point to tell them my height. I've never really found that they were turned off by it. Most of the men I've dated are actually turned on by it. Men I've met offline have been friends and they asked me out. The last guy I dated before my current boyfriend was fucking tiny compared to me. He was totally a sub so that helped a lot lol.
This advice probably sucks but I've honestly not had much of an issue with it. I used to be extremely insecure about my height in school, to the point I seriously fucked up my back from slouching constantly to appear shorter. I'm 27 now and I'm still suffering from it. I just learned to accept myself and anyone who doesn't like it can fuck off. Being tall is awesome and especially being over 5'9 for a woman is rare, which makes it even more beautiful imho. If a man is too insecure to date you then they don't deserve you. If you like someone just feel em out, flirt with them! If they like you back they will let you know ;)
Five days and still no answer. I really need to run away from my abusive
If you have a bachelor's degree from an Anglophone country you can teach English abroad. It's relatively easy, especially if you're white.
If you want to move to a nice country like Canada, Sweden, or the US you can forget about it.
Why can't you move somewhere in your own country?

Now I know this is going to sound hypocritical because I'm posting this on a site dedicated to lolcows but- what is with preeteens on tik tok ganging up on (what appears to me to be) developmentally delayed adults? To me it seems so weird and unfunny but maybe I'm just too old for it.
How am I being autistic? I only have a marginal interest in her and I don't know if she's worth dropping my albums for her. All I hear about her is that she just makes music and wears weird clothes. Damn, I didn't know asking if she's worth listening to was such a triggering
ok now it's morning and i just heard her unlock her car twice, go in and out of her apartment 4 times, and she checks the lock very intently each time
i think it must be ocd. poor woman

Why do people get super autistic when someone mentions they like an apple product?>>385741
I think it's more prevalent now because people figured they can make money or get that yt clout with channels dedicated to cringe compilations/making fun of people.They're very popular these days along with "Tea"/drama channels.
Preteens today are glued to the internet so they're just following the trend, along with the fact that they're already nutty due to their age.>>385994
She has an encyclopedia dramatica page, that'll give you some good info.
It’s the cool thing to shit on. Don’t know why, they’re genuinely better than a lot of the market and their stuff looks really nice. One of the biggest arguments I hear is that they’re expensive by what isn’t these days
And hey, at least apple cares about user privacy
See a doctor if you miss your period for more than two months.
Mine always go away in times of stress or under-eating.

Are plastic outlet covers recyclable?
I personally adore her and basically became a huge fan of her music in a few hours lol. A friend sent me a video of her instagram story where she recounts a story of how she went for a doctor's visit and the nurse made her pee in a cup in a closet, but something about her was offputting at the time and I didn't really watch it. For a while I just really didn't want to listen to her, literally didn't give her a chance or heard her voice, just didn't want to listen. Then I was on the Colors yt channel and was curious what their most popular video was and lo and behold it's Billie singing idontwannabeyouanymore. I don't know what it was, but the moment she started singing, something clicked and I just could not stop listening to her. bury a friend and you should see me in a crown are some of my favorite songs because I love that sort of heavy techno sound (sorry- don't know the actual genre or term for it lol). I've been consistently playing only her songs for what's probably been three weeks by now and I still love listening to her. When I watch concerts of lives, it looks so fun when the audience sings with her, and I considered buying scalped tickets for like $200 to see her in my city lol. I went back to watch that video of her peeing in a closet and lost my fucking mind. She seems super chill and down to earth, really funny. Her clothing aesthetic isn't really my thing but I just ignore it. Anyway, to each their own. You might like her, you might not. I think she's worth checking out. Maybe listen to a few songs. when the party's over is the second song I listen to from her and I didn't really like it at the time. Maybe you'll find a song you like even if you don't like her overall discography.

is it possible to be legitimately depressed because of school or am i just fucking stupid and looking for an excuse?
you never know…
yeah chocolate milk is fine.
Depression doesn't have to be "deep". Depression can be triggered
by stressful situations like losing a loved one or failing school.

i get really weird whenever i have to do any work (assignments, tests, etc) as in, i feel like whatever i'll do, it's never going to be enough and i'll eventually just fail and feel completely hopeless about my future
i've always kinda thought of it as "depression", but typing it out, i'm not sure if it's the appropriate word to describe what i've written>>387650
i just get scared i won't be taken seriously because i haven't really had anything traumatic happen to me and i'll just be perceived being too dramatic and or lazy about school>>387661
i'm pretty sure this is stemming back from my last year of high school where i completely failed everything and i haven't changed/grown from there
btw thank you anons for your responses
I'm obese myself, and I tend to collect certain things, but both are because I've struggled a lot with impulse control and having an addictive personality. I don't think for most that being fat results in hoarding, so much as poor impulse control results in overeating and overspending. A generally terrible level of self-esteem tends to also fuel the temporary dopamine rush that results from eating and collecting/spending.
Basically, yeah, probably correlated, but probably not causative.
sounds about right. Difficulty with impulse control, sensitivity towards addiction/instant gratification and (in some people) a certain tendency to externalise things and put them off. I’ve noticed a lot of “once I get/start xyz, life will be better” type of thinking in my friends and family members struggling with obesity. Then once they do get or start xyz and it doesn’t instantly make them feel better, they lose interest and give up on it. All the new hair colours, clothes, makeup, fad diets, kitchen appliances, club memberships, physical or virtual collectibles, etc. are just another symptom of this way of thinking.
I know a woman who has a Pinterest board of literally hundreds of healthy snack recipes but has privately admitted to me that she’s never made a single one because simply scrolling through them and collecting more is enough to alleviate the guilty feeling she’d otherwise get from eating a bag of chips. So every weekend she sits behind her laptop for a few hours at a time, feeling proactive as she pins new healthy recipes to her board while eating junk food, telling herself she’ll totally start eating better after this.

My question's ultra retarded but this is my first boyfriend and I don't know any better so I'm going to ask anyway.
Last night, we were cuddling on the couch and he went in for a neck kiss which was my first one ever. For some reason…I didn't really care for it. To be honest, it literally just felt like someone's tongue licking/kissing my neck without sexual context and I didn't feel turned on at all. Everyone talks about how sexy they are so I'm wondering if there's something wrong with me or maybe he's just not a good kisser? My heart was racing and I was like omg but it didn't get me in the mood or anything like I thought it was supposed to.
I don't know what was going on lmao sorry for being spergy loser supreme.
I see, the thing about the external hard drives is for me personally that I'm kind of worried that those things stop working or have some kind of error and that means that all your photos are gone or can't excess them because of whatever reason.
I already lost once 10 years of photos because of something like that and I'm still not over it that I have almost no photos of my teenager years…
Most people at the gym are fumbling beginners/casuals or people who are SUPER into working out and are happy to help out beginners (or just don’t care). As long as you’re respectful of gym ettiquette i.e. wiping down equipment after you’re done and putting weights back they belong I don’t think anybody will judge you.
I know it can seem really intimidating to walk in and see all the veteran gym goers doing these intense workouts with heavy weights but honestly in my experience with basically any hobby the people who are truly passionate and talented are more than happy to share their knowledge with newbies. It’s only the mediocre, casual people who judge and gatekeep. And especially with working out it can be really easy to injure yourself with the wrong form and most people are well intentioned and don’t want to see others get hurt so they’ll try to kindly help you out if you’re doing something wrong.
And most gyms I’ve seen have trainers walking around and working out themselves. You usually have to pay for actual sessions of course but you can always go up and ask them for help with spotting or checking form, it’s their job after all.
There's no guarantee that whatever's saved in the cloud doesn't get lost due to some error, albeit less likely, plus it might be costlier in the long run.
I haven't had issues with external drives but if you had a bad experience than maybe saving it in a cloud store is better idea. I hope some other anons have a better tip.
Sorry to hear about those photos, that is a great loss.
fucking same anon, like it's just crazy how quick people can make really good puns
i wanna be like that too
I see, thanks. I guess I'll just stick to mine then.
> Plus if you have dumbo ears like me they will probably hurt after a while.
Haha, yeah I do which is why my main requirement for headphones is that they're over the ear type that is cushy for the ears.>>387946>>387917
Would it be weird for someone in their late 20s to start doing that?
I guess I associate with teenage girls but it seems like a nice idea.
Are you still upset that the cgl lolita general wasn't willing to shit all over FR with you for a completely non-lolita-related post?
I agree that it's pretty cringe but your preoccupation with this is honestly cringier.
Your important digital files (old pictures, college thesis…) should always be stored in a least two different places. Cloud + external hard drive is a good idea. With google drive you get 15Go of free storage so it's a good start.
Remember that if you only keep your files on an external hard drive you always run the risk of having it stolen if someone break into your home for example.
Some people just have shitty ears that get infected a lot and there's not much you can do about it. I'm assuming your infections accompany a cold? If so the advice my dr gave me was to start using nasal decongestants as soon as I'm feeling sick because it lessens the chance of getting an infection.
You should really ask your dr if there's anything you can do to prevent it from happening so much because they're so busy they don't tend to take the initiative. If he still has no advice then you might just be very unlucky.
Cats like to be in enclosed places where they are secure and "tucked in". It's an evolutionary thing. My cat went through a phase where she slept in a tiny space between my desk and the wall.
I think he feels safe and comfortable in his cat tree and wants to sleep there, but he also wants to make the space feel as enclosed as he can.
