Fuuuuuck that sounds SO painful. I shave all over down there and I've had maybe two bad ingrown hairs near my vag but I never even thought of getting one there. I'm scared man

Hi I came back~ I feel really bad not updating but life kinda got in the way so sorry ._. I stopped using the cream for a few months like a dumb ass but I started again :)

I ordered the 3 tub package thing from their website. They've thus far added new ingredients, keeping the hydroquinone but adding 6% Glycolic Acid and Lactic Acid. Here are my thoughts:

* The color change isn't immediate but it's really close. The point is to "lift" the dark color.

* If you don't see any color change, you either 1) need to get a wax/shave down there (will talk about this later) and/or 2) you aren't exfoliating. You have to remove the dead skin cells that contain the darker pigment I guess in order to see the fresher skin below. Once I did that, I saw much better results.

* Irritation can become an issue. I realized it was better to apply a little in the morning and then at night, after a shower, apply a larger amount.

* Do NOT not NOT wear thongs. Seriously, don't. Friction + acidic cream near your asshole = lots of pain. Be ready to invest in no lines underwear ( I really like Calvin Klein's version).

* This leads me to absorption. Basically, the cream will never fully absorb and takes a few hours for some/the majority of it to really seep in. Wait 20 min after applying to put on clothing. I go a little overboard and at night take saran wrap, put it where my butt would be on my underwear, and tape it there so more of it absorbs (so it doesn't rub off on my underwear). Also during the day I wear a panty liner just in case any rubs off.

Let's get a sewing thread going, shall we?

I'd personally like to start making my own clothes, but as I'm self taught and have tons of gaps in my knowledge of the subject, I feel that a thread for discussing sewing might be a good idea (at least I hope!).

Post tips, tutorials, current or future projects, things you've made, sewing horror stories, etc.

I have zero experience sewing, although I do embroidery, but I really want to start. I've been watching Thrifting transformations on Youtube and ugh that girl does wonder. I won't have access to a sewing machine in a long time but in the meanwhile I'll read tutorials and stuff. I can't wait to start.

Going through the manual, taking notes, and making samples to match are really good ways to get used to your sewing machine. If yours doesn't have one for any reason, there is probably a PDF online you can print off (recommended so you can have it on hand). It helps so much when you're just starting out, esp. since sewing machine models can be vastly different.

If your stitching gets all bogged up:
- re-thread the entire machine, including the bobbin. Sometimes things just fall out of place… not sure how tho
- check the tension. If you're a beginner using non-stretch medium weight fabrics (like cotton, very recommended), the little half-moon tension should be at 3.5, and the big tension wheel should be at 4. Different weights/fabric types need different tensions - I usually just sew on a scrap and adjust until I get it right.
- on rare occasion, you will need to pull out a screwdriver/the metal "T", unscrew the the throat plate, and clean out the fabric fluff that can get trapped down there using a brush. You only need to do this if your fabric/needle/thread are getting "dusty" as you sew.

Making samples using scrap fabric of darts, pleats, french seams, curves (both concave/convex), button holes, pivoting for sharp edges, etc. is a good way to get used to your own machine, and to learn how to do all of those things. It helps if you want to be able to make more complex garments sooner. I think this is the best beginner I-wish-I-did-this tip because you don't have to work so hard when actually sewing for enjoyment.

General tips for beginners:

- standard seam allowances are 5/8 of an inch, so you have room to let it out if you have to.
- stitch length should be 2.8 (2.5 if your machine doesn't let you put in 2.8)

I'm not a nurse but I know a few nurses, EMTs and care worker.
You already know that nursing is a high pressure hell, you're overworked, underpaid and undervalued. At the same time, people who can really deal with it seem to flourish enough when they have that kind of gallows humor and don't let things get to them. I feel like it's fair to add that the ones who wanted to help people most are the ones that couldn't hack it.
Why not try care work as a start? They often hire people without any previous training and you'll see if you can handle stuff like >>188227

No. 188256

It's like >>188183 said. Everyone is catty, surgeons, anesthetists, nurses, even medical aid assistants. I don't think they do it on purpose, it's the whole high-stress, high-competitive environment that makes them act like that.
They're bitchy to each other and to the patients, but they're specially bitchy to medical students, I think. One night, during emergency rotation, a medical aid assitant started screaming at us for just being there and wanted to make us just stand in a corner for the whole night. I've also had bad experiences with nurses, in which they would purposely place themselves in front of us so we wouldn't be able to watch a procedure or they would just straight off tell us to gtfo from the OR. I think they resent the surgeons because many are insufferable jerks or they don't feel appreciated enough, but of course they can't act like that with them so they let it all out on us.
It's said that it's usually the smuggest gunner-type student who wants to be a surgeon, but idk if that's really true.

No. 188140


i'd definitely advise you to commission someone local or at least in a comfortable distance away, because it's always better to have a fitting on you for clothes. most cosplayers can both sew and make armor but if not, be prepared to commission two seperate people or at least make the armor yourself. it's simpler than it seems.

No. 187908

I just signed a contract to work at a larp camp for my second year in a row. Super pumped and glad larping is becoming a little more normal every year.

I'm having … problems with ttrpg's lately …
I've played since I was in middle school, so I'm by no means new to roleplay. But I'm not some elitists asshole either … so I end up in this grey area surrounded by people that are too new and uncomfortable to have a good campaign or elitists fucks that take it way too seriously.

The worst I've ever been apart of; unwittingly playing with tons of sjw's
> play scion: modern day super hero type game
> Choose a power associated with an Egyptian god, so I want to play an Egyptian looking guy (not white but not black)
>They silently let me plan my character then the next day say I'm not allowed to play non white characters because "I don't understand the struggles of non white folks"
> ok, so I make a "white passing" guy with dreads.
>"UGH a white guy with dreads!? I'm sure he's a total douche and we all hate him already, but cool!" then proceed to shit on my character the entire game despite me not talking much at all.

Obviously, I dropped the game real quick after that. Right now I'm playing a 5e homebrew postopocylpse campaign with my reg group of casuals. They are nice and funny but me and 2 others are the only ones that actually roleplay while they sit back and enjoy our dialogue with the DM. We challenged them to play a character opposite of what they normally do. 1 of the girls started crying because she felt like we were personally attacking her for not liking her overly loud, self absorbed, have to have all the items characters over and over again.

I love this hobby but I'm tired of ending up with shit groups with too many personal problems.

This is an all too familiar scenario. RP is getting stupid social justice shit all the fucking time. It's infested my fave system WoD and it sucks. I'm glad my group is just my friends who are chill.

And that's absolute bollocks they wouldn't let you play the character you wanted. Like, wtf kinda authority are they on race anyway? Fuck them. And isn't it hypocritical to say that you can only RP the race you physically are? And make most adventures then 98 percent WHITE characters? So stupid.
