I looked through the catalog and didn't find one (forgive me if there is and I missed it) so I thought I'd make one. Post recipes, cooking tips, talk about cooking, etc.

I'll start. I'm pretty young (recently turned 18) and have only been cooking for a couple years. I learned because no one else in my family knew how to cook and it turned into one of my favorite pastimes. I particularly love baking deserts and cooking Asian recipes such as Thai chicken.

Pic is raspberry cheesecake that I saw on google.

Those numbers don't take into consideration region, seasonal prices, etc either. Here, avocado is fairly expensive because it has to travel from the other side of the country or from Mexico, and it gets even pricier during the winter. It definitely is not $1. She tries to make up for it by saying that it's per serving, but that can't really be relied upon if you're not considering seasonal prices.

Just use hummus or squash as an alternative to an avocado. Or a banana for a sweeter dish.

Yeah there's definitely alternatives to use, it's just that sometimes faux pricepoints like these cement the myth that all vegetables are super cheap for everyone anywhere and at any given season.

I love this recipe so much, its really easy and the sauce lasts a few days in the frige. Its really yummy and filling, my first 'go-to' meal if i need something in a bind. This channel is run by a group of upper class moms, so their cooking vids are all kid friendly recipes, which I love because im a very picky eater, and I dont eat large portions. Im also vegetarian which dosent help much, considering most veggie meals are just a mushy mixture of random vegetables

They sell special wipes and the like for cups, but it kind of defeats the purpose. That's why I use a combination of tampons and cups. You could also dump the cup and then wash it at home later.
They also sell pic related, though I can't vouch for it.

No. 178415

I use a diva cup and it's only supposed to be changed every 12 hours? like where the hell are these situations that sometime in 12 hours you can't get somewhere to dump it out. you rinse it (or use light soap) and put it back in and then clean it AFTER your period is over by boiling it. they even honestly say on the website that in a pinch urine is sterile so technically you could dump it in the toilet, pee on it, and toilet paper it off. tbh in a pinch you can just toilet paper it off and rinse later. it's silicone so it doesn't have a smell.

They also make disposable cups now. dump it and toss it and put a new one in.

before becoming a neet, I used to work at a sweatshop factory and the shifts were brutal, 24 to 48 hours with small breaks every 8 hours for some sleep, food or toilet. So yeah, having my period these times could've been worse without a cup.

Obamacare will be repealed with a simple 51 senator majority. And if Democrats are smart this time around,they will not filibuster the replacement. They should let it pass with a Republican majority.

There is no plan with enough upsides that a political party can run on its success in the next election. Healthcare is a kryptonite issue because the only acceptable soundbyte answer is "the coverage is cheap, fast, and all encompassing!" And this isn't actually possible in reality.

But it seems like Democrats still haven't learned shit. Everyone responsible for pushing Clinton should have been run out of town and blacklisted forever. These stupid fucks are going to screw up the playbook again.

Some poors do buy into that myth, but there are two political parties with an absolute hammerlock on power here in the states, and they don't permit unorthodox views to make it onto the party platforms. It's wh Sanders was frozen out and why the same politicos fawning over Trump now were excoriating him every five minutes in the primaries.

Ever wonder why there's never a serious challenge from Americans whenever we get embroiled in another war on another paper-thin pretext?

As far as economics are concerned, this is a left-leaning country. Culturally, not so much.

Yeah the whole two party thing always baffled me. Especially since they're not really parties but platforms. How is Donald Trump a republican? What does republican or democrat even mean?
318 Million being offered to chose between two realistic options sounds nuts. I mean you don't have to go all in like Israel and have 10 parties bicker about a country the size of New Jersey but what about 4-5? I feel like if there's more parties politicians learn how to compromise and form alliances instead of moving into a gridlock because everybody always blames "the others".

I don't blame the whole RP thing for how I ended up, I was actually pretty social online when I was more into it.

I honestly consider it an almost learned behavior/genetic since my sister, mother, and one of my uncles is the same way. My sister only ever had one friend as a child in I think 4th grade, but the girl moved away and this was before the internet so they didn't stay in touch.

I had a few best friends growing up, one was my neighbor who was a horribly spoiled little girl who blamed my sister for stupid shit and we all had a falling out (the girl was young year younger than me, my sister is 4 years older than me.) We had our falling out when I was in 4th grade, I dropped her cold turkey. I honestly don't remember having school friends prior to that. After not being friends with my neighbor, I finally made a school friend who's house I would go over to. She had a large friend group, who I was never a part of. I've always been satisfied with having one friend at a time. I was friends with that one girl until 6th grade before drifting from her and making another best friend, who also was the center of a large friend group. (These girls outright called me their best friend, btw, which incited jealousy, especially since I showed such little interest in everyone else.) Was friends with that girl until about sophmore year of high school, then made friends with another girl who had been my "closest" friend. We hung out ALL the time, got jobs at the same places and every thing. But when I went away to college for a year (HORRIBLE experience, made me even more anti social than I had ever been before) we drifted apart. Then she moved a few states away, and that didn't bother me at first because I expected us to still talk online. Instead she barely contacted me and there were a few years where we didn't even talk at all. Only when I finally got a facebook a couple of years ago did we semi reconnect. Just friending each other and the occasional comment.

I felt really betrayed by how she just blew me off, but then I remembered that though we hung out ALL the time, we didn't have a close emotional relationship. I never spoke to her about anything deep. I never did with any of my "best friends". I've always been extremely private, I never even told my mother or sister when I first got my period. I just don't at all about anything personalPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

I'm rambling, but I forgot to detail how I think my upbringing is why the way I am. My mother, though I know she loves me and my sis, is a private, reserved person. There was no physical affection from her, I can't remember ever getting kisses good night, or hugs growing up. My dad on the other hand would kiss us on our foreheads goodnight and give hugs (but I remember not liking it.) To this day I hate hugs and physical contact. Me and my sis never hugged or hug. The only contact between us was rough housing (wrestling, pillow fights, tickling.)

My mother is also really cut off from her family, always complained about going to get togethers, and since we didn't like them as kids (hated our rowdy cousins) she stopped taking us to them.

And the last thing, which is probably a big factor, and something that I have never spoken about to anyone (not even my online friend of 6 years) only ever mentioned it on anonymous boards, is that I had a baby brother who died at 3 years old from leukemia. When he died, my mother never mentioned him again after the funeral. I was only 9 when he died, and so I don't remember what day he died (I'm pretty sure it was in August) or where he is buried. I think my mother's reaction to his death probably stunted me and my sister (though my sister was already friendless for years before this anyway.)

So anyway, yeah I'm pretty sure its genetics and environment that's resulted in how I am. Roleplay is just more of a creative outlet, and a way for me to experience emotions through my characters that I know I never would in real life.

No. 177955

>>177954
Also going to add, because of my brother being sick his whole short life, my parents were always either working like dogs to pay for his treatment, or away at the hospital with him. This was back in the early 90s when it was okay to leave your kids alone (my sister was 10-13 at the time, so that was considered old enough to not need a baby sister.)

So for those three formative years, it was just me and my sis by ourselves or playing with the spoiled neighbor girl.

>> anyway, yeah I'm pretty sure its genetics and environment that's resulted in how I am. Roleplay is just more of a creative outlet

I didn't mean to imply role play is the reason for your situation. All I meant to say is that it might reinforce schizoid behaviors since it gives you an opportunity to indulge in your inner world instead of making yourself go out there and do stuff you maybe don't want to do but that would benefit you on the long run.

I'm sorry about your baby brother. I imagine my mother would react in a similar way. When I was 8 she didn't allow me to go to my grandmother's funeral. My gran was like a 2nd mother to me because my mom was always at work. It wasn't until 10 years later that I learned she didn't die a natural death but had committed suicide. The person who told me wasn't my mother but by my therapist.

I'm gonna post this here, since the assholes of r9k told me to jack off when I asked for advice

I'm friends with a BPD girl, and recently his first boyfriend and her got together again (she ended a relationship with a really close friend of mine for this guy) and apparently everything was smooth until three weeks ago when the guy broke up (again) with her and she has gone really crazy
though I really want to be supportive it seems like everything I do doesn't matter to her and she only seeks really specific things from me. I feel used, and I don't know what to do.

Depression is like herpes, all you can do is keep managing it until the symptoms are either manageable or even completely unnoticeable and you can cut down on treatment, but if you ignore the treatment for it completely then it can just reoccur over and over again.
Intead of antibiotics you have both physical (meds, exercise, routine, healthy eating) and mental upkeep (counselling, cbt, positive mental attitude techniques). What combination and how long for is dependent on each person.

Drugs can help, with emphasis on CAN, it's not always the case.

Small steps
- regular interaction with people
-having a partner really helps even if we don't want to admit it
- Regular exercise
- Good food (fruit and veggies, whole wheat grains, milk or substitute, unprocessed meat of substitute)
- sunlight daily
- having a pet to care for (if you can afford it/like pets)
- Cognitive behavioral therapy
- realizing that you don't need to feel happy every goddamn second of the day to be normal

Don't listen to people saying you can never overcome it, because that is not true. It may be the case you need to learn to live with it but there is a big change you can overcome it like a lot of people have done.

I've had several long-distance relationships and none of any other kind. I've never kissed a woman, even. I'd actually rather keep it that way than get involved with anyone like those I've been with so far again though.

First crush spent five years responding to my advances with variants on "maybe later", then said "no" at the end of that. I took the first no I got as the final answer but hadn't considered during that time that maybe she wasn't actually growing more interested in me because my mind was filled with bad ideas from romantic comedy.

I didn't push my first girlfriend to show me a current photo, which if she had shown one would've debunked her scam of telling everyone online that she had cancer and was undergoing chemo in order to get asspats from strangers. She faked committing suicide because asking for a breakup or trying to work out relationship problems is _totes just too hard_.

Then a stranger on Omegle I met while I was grieving over that befriended me and kept asking me to write fanfictions of her favorite anime characters being dominated in bondage and torture situations (I refused to write them actually getting raped or murdered, which seemed to disappoint her somewhat). Vanished on me mid-conversation after several months of correspondence and I waited several months for her to return, sending her emails with longer and longer intervals between hoping she'd come back.

Someone added to my Skype directory started talking to me when I posted a status update about being hospitalized for my appendicitis, then as soon as my medical bills were paid started "needing" money every month. During that time she'd managed to beg me for cybersex enough that I actually gave it to her, and so far she's the only person I've had it with, and she would switch between begging for it and then belittling me for wanting it when she didn't and accuse me of pressuring her for it. She agreed to marry me and kept the ring I sent her. At least I never met her in person and kissed for real, then I'd have gotten herpes as an insult added to all the injury.

Next girl approached me on a dating site I was using and despite my open defensiveness kept kissing me in RP, including French kisses and lots of feeling up. Then four months in I find out she'd been seeing another guy for two of those, and she picked him over me because he was ten years younger and she felt I was too old to present to her parents - an odd concern to gPost too long.

i mean girls have been doing it forever. from being a sugar baby to just being online and recieving things because you're cute or nice, how do you guys feel about it?

sometimes i get jealous that a girl got a 500 dollar purse from a rando, but then i just feel happy for her and strive to get to that level one day.
i usually feel a little guilty when recieving money or gifts from others because it's simply in my nature to want to give back or do something for them.
this is hypocritical im sure, but when i dont necessarily have talent or a lot of money, it is nice to recieve something from your wishlist once in a while.

so yeah im rambling, but any opinions?

is it bad/trashy? or fine? im not sure if it's taking advantage of some, but no one is forcing people to donate or gift you things.
