Which paint is better for a beginner painter: acrylic or watercolor?

>>1416420
acrylics are easier to control, and there's more room for mistakes since you can just paint over as many times as you'd like. but they're so different so if you want to be a watercolor artist then just do watercolors, because painting in acrylics wont get you to be good in watercolor and vice versa

Nta but everyone sucks at art/any craft when they first start out, you have go stick at doing it. With a good enough portfolio you can send it out to as many companies and you'll eventually get a junior position, obviously need to be polite and present as hard working etc. You can do UX design as it's the one you need least artistic talent for.

Hi, nonnies, does anyone get weird eye pain and did you fix it in any way? I woke up with my eyes in extreme pain…feeling tense, pressured, dry and extremely strained–it's even obvious visually because they're a lot more sunken looking when they feel like this, with deep hollows.
I'm not even sure if it's allergies. It doesn't go away with Zyrtec.

Tried, unfortunately, and didn't really find much in the small tests they ran besides some minor deficiencies that megadosing has barely corrected. And yeah; it is noticeable. In the past I've had people gasp in horror, ask me if I'm ok or need 911, go on about how ill I look. I just always assumed I am just built to be exhausted or something but I guess it's getting so unbearable, especially because the rare good days I have feel so amazing so I know things can be better.

Beautiful is bigger and more elegant. Pretty is like beautiful and cute had a baby. Think you’d call a lover beautiful or a moving sunset. Pretty would be smaller and maybe more juvenile like telling a child her dress is very pretty. Beautiful is more formal.

No. 1416827

>>1416800
Pretty is quite superficial and just how something looks. It also has a feminine connotation and is used to mean things along the lines of dainty, sweet, charming. Beautiful is more substantial and evokes more of a feeling. It's more abstract and you can describe an experience as beautiful and not just how an object or person looks.

My boyfriend is a chef and cooks 80% of the time, if not more. I was thinking about buying him an expensive kitchen appliance + a new cutting knife, but I am overthinking because it feels like an "our" gift and not just a him gift.

NTA but I thought you meant they purposefully hurt themself to make you feel guilty.
But if you mean something like they just stubbed their toe on something and they got hurt… I think feeling a little guilty for a few minutes is natural, but beyond that, I think that it sounds like some kind of a trauma response. Some guilt is normal, but with how you describe it, it sounds like a bit of a problem. It's something you can work through though.

I think a nice kitchen tool for someone who enjoys cooking (and cooks a lot) is a great gift, but I’d make sure it’s something they really want and will use. Stand mixers are great, but they take up a ton of space and kinda suck in a small apartment. Good knives are amazing and will last for years, but make sure you know which brand and type he wants, some people are picky as hell about their knives.

Ok, so…nonnies…is it possible that someone can only really get a good rest during the day? I feel like shit pretty much constantly, always have, but there was one day where I talked to a friend all night (huge for me, I'm very shy + have jaw issues that make it hard to speak) and slept during the day. I woke up in the afternoon feeling so alive and amazing and flew out of bed. The sun also had been directly on me for hours. I felt amazing, my dormmates who had roasted me for being sick looking gasped and said I looked great, I could think so much more clearly, etc. It's just…when I slept again that night I woke up the next morning feeling like shit again. That one day was the only day I ever day day slept because my sleep schedule is the most generically "ideal" it can be.

I found a baby kitten and it has a very stuffy nose and is very skelly. I managed to give it a bit of gravy with a syringe and it’s drank water, but it doesn’t wanna eat. I thought it would after it tasted the gravy but no. It was only a very small amount and I’m worried about how bony it is.

You may have to keep feeding it with the syringe. If you can, get a can of powdered milk specifically for kittens (a lot of supermarkets have them in the pet care aisle, at least in Burgerland) and give it that through the syringe if it won't drink normally. When my mom put me in charge of a sick kitten back in the day, we fed him chicken-flavored human baby food with an antibiotic ground up and mixed into it, and it worked to get him eating and better. I'm hoping this helps, and I'm rooting for your little fella. ♥

Sure it's possible, but it depends on the person. If they have asks open, you could always ask them if they were open to talking on discord.
Also maybe this is dumb, but one ways I met a lot of people o could talk to was by hosting a stupid cards against humanity night for a fandom I was in, and I met people on discord for that. You could also start a discord fanclub for things you like or hobbies you have and invite people to join. Having a shared hobby makes it easier because you have something to talk about.

Is there any hope for me in this scenario? I sold an item to a buyer, and basically, I completely fucked up on their address, everything is correct, except I thought they lived in Spain, when in reality, it's a Californian city with the same name as a place in Spain, so, the shipping label is all correct for the Californian city, down to the zipcode for it, except I wrote Spain on the package. The tracking shows it indeed went to Spain, but the tracking stops there (back on the 12th)

The legality and how you set it up is complicated, because you either pool money together or use your own and people living on your property still want security like tennants rights basically. Wanting to farm your own produce has complicated legal shit around it nowadays too, so that's easier said than done. Nevermind that finding other misandrist women in your area is difficult and that leaving your life behind for a potentially 1970's style cult commune in a different (nation)state isn't necessarily appealing.

The only way for my mind to relax around people IRL (or in general) is by drinking. I want to stop 'socially drinking'. I am an extremely anxious person, really shy when it comes to talking (unless im drunk) and i overthink 24/7.

Why is watching SATC like smoking crack to me? I watched the whole series 5 years ago. Then I watched it entirely again 4 years ago. And now if been sick for 4 days and it's the only thing I'm motivated enough to watch and I'm binge-watching it again. I couldn't even think of any other thing to watch while I was feeling crushed by this cold. Before that, some months ago, I started watching video compilations of the outfits the characters wore during the show. It's just so entertaining to me. And my life is nothing like the lives of those fictional women. Could that be the reason? Could I be hypnotized by the intoxicating mixture of late capitalism, 00s adult fashion and shallow yet exciting fictional scenarios? Is this what happens whn you don't have any friends after high school? The most simmilar addiction with a show I ever had was Neon Genesis Evangelion.

I think I irreparably fucked my voice by life long of vocal frying, autistic screaming, and smoking. I think my default voice is unfeminine and froglike. I don’t think I sound like a troon though. It’s okay when I use higher pitch “customer service” voice but I think I sound so insincere and bitchy and everyone can tell.

Update: I took it to the vet, they said it’s probable kitten is not gonna make it. Gums are very white, anemic, internal body temperature very low, heart rate very slow, dehydrated, it has an ulcer on its tongue, making it painful to eat, lots of fleas that they say are sucking all its blood and cannot give it flea medicine bc afraid it’ll kill kitten too, no bloodwork bc of aforementioned. They give me something for its eyes, gave it some liquid for its dehydration subcutaneously, gave me some mineral/vitamin food supplement that is supposed to open it’s appetite, an antibiotic. I’ll take it back next week. I have it on a heating pad, going to give it some food now, and try to take off as many fleas off as I can later.

How do you remember people's faces after seeing them only once or twice?

I hate watching live action with more than a few characters because I mix everybody up with each other and I don't get how others can memorize all that shit without issues.

Like a movie starts and there is a blonde woman and a bald guy that are shown for a few minutes. I want to concentrate on what they say and the plot, so I just remember "character 1 = woman + blonde" and "character 2 = man + bald".
Everything well so far but then the movie introduces another blonde woman later and maybe even another bald guy and I have no fucking idea if they are the characters from the start or not because the two attributes I remembered about them match as well.
I recently watched a movie with three blonde women I think and it was hassle and I had to go back and forth with the video to see who is who and try to remember other face details to tell them apart.

Nobody ever talks about it so maybe it's just me having that issue.

If it’s stuff like Ajax and brand names. It’s because of the southern United States and left over remnants from slavery and a lack of education.

It's also easy to get anons to agree with what you're saying if there's simply enough replies to it which anons achieve via samefagging.

How to non-awkwardly communicate how thankful I am to my coworker to being supportive when I had a tough time at work today? I got a news about a death of a relative and cried a bit, everyone ignored me but she asked if I'm ok and if I want to talk or prefer to be left alone, which was so very kind and thoughtful. I ended up running home and not talking to her again today but I want to show her that I appreciate being seen and offered support; but saying that exactly in these words sounds stiff and autistic, idk.

Changing your name would be a good first step. Or are you ethnic by any chance? It's common for Latinos or Asians to go by a different, anglicized last name or use their middle name as their last name on their CVs.

Anyone studying social science (whether it’s at the undergraduate or grad level) how is it like nowadays?

idk what country you’re in but here in the uk social sciences are completely infested with woke ideology, in my personal experience and also what i’ve heard from friends and acquaintances studying all over the country. keep in mind these are big established respected institutions and not random retarded liberal arts institutions. honestly it’s probably a case by case basis and i’d recommend visiting unis and looking at the course content if you can bc you can get a feel for the academic culture and if it’s retarded and woke or semi normal. if you’re in the us there’s probably a lot more variation between what is taught at unis.

I had to take a sociology course this year and it focused on gender. I’m not sure how crazy it could get at other unis but ours went over gender bias, for example in one section the professor had us window shop and examine the differences between male/female clothing and hobbies in different age groups. It also went into male and female athletics, careers (women work more service industry jobs and get paid less than men), domestic violence. As it was a US class Title IX was also a large topic. The last section was for transgender topics and we just watched a documentary about kids coming out as trans. Near the end of the class Roe V Wade was repealed so the professor posted about that and it was discussed a bit, too.

Overall I didn’t have any complaints about the class.

Thanks nonnas. To answer your questions:
1. I considered changing my name but idk if employers will look up previous names. Is that something that they do? Also, I live in a place where name changes have to announced in the the local newspaper, so people will find me again anyways.
2. The reason why I say that it's over for me is because my prospects are legit bleak, the other day I applied to work at entry level cashier and call center jobs and even they said that my past "does not align with the company image". Idk, it's just easy to get discouraged after getting rejected from even the easiest, bottom of the barrel stuff. Guess I'll try Amazon or some sort of warehouse job, that sounds like a good idea.
3. I can't modify my name in the content I created because it doesn't belong to me. I was actually employed by porn studios, cam sites, and prostitution agencies, so I don't own the content or the copyright to the content, they do. (I don't make royalties off it either)
Plus like I said it's too easily findable, I was never famous or even 'popular' by any means (a couple thousands of followers at most), but it really is hard to lie and say I was "freelancing" or "caring for family" when the top results when googling me are my porn and escort pages. I haven't fully "left" either, every time I run out of money I'm forced back into it, so recent results pop up too, and noone wants to hire a "currently active" 'porn actress', especially someone who's done 'real' (professional) porn as opposed to, say, nudes or onlyfans or something.
I've tried to no avail to get them removed from Google, but it's nearly impossible because a) I'm not the copyright owner, and b) every time the get removed from one site (rarely), they always pop up on another. It's like wack a mole: hell edition.
4. I have no IRL friends because I'm depressed and ashamed of myself

Not everyone goes to university straight away, like for me personally, i only started when i was 24 for personal reasons. There can be multiple reasons for this, but financial constraints seems to be the biggest reason. I've never actually seen 16 year olds move out in western countries unless they are single mothers or are orphans, but usually still have police officers come by to make sure they are ok because they are minors, that's me speaking about the uk btw.

Ok I’ll try to break this down. Your BMR is a part of your TDEE. Any calories burned by exercise are also a part of your TDEE. So, let’s say your BMR is 1200 calories, and on days when you’re just browsing lolcow, picking up groceries, doing some laundry, etc., your TDEE is 1600 or something. The calories you burn doing little things around the house plus your BMR is your TDEE. If you burn more calories through exercise, that is also going to be a part of your TDEE. TDEE just means the amount of calories you burn in a day. The number is going to vary with your level of activity. So if the hypothetical you starts working out twice a week burning 350 each workout, then your TDEE on those two days is going to be 1950. If you’re trying to maintain your weight, you can either eat 1950 calories on those two days and 1600 on every other day, or you can divide it out into your weekly average and eat 1700 calories on every day of the week, including your workout days when you are technically burning more.
If you’re trying to lose weight, you need to be burning more calories than you consume.

All I said was that you can say no to someone instead of backing yourself into a corner and victimizing yourself? That has nothing to do with me being religious and it also has nothing to do with me being a nutjob. I’ve been a victim of sexual abuse but I grew into a fucking adult and learned that I can assert boundaries within all of my personal relationships, no matter how they may make the other person feel. So many straight women who are fully capable of setting boundaries and saying a firm, steadfast No to these faggy little fucks who wanna try to analize with their microdicks always just choose not to because they want to be a deer in the headlights, for what reason I do not know.

I never tried anal but I enjoy degrading stuff. I’m generally more submissive in bed. I think I’m one of the few women who actually enjoy it and have fantasies involving submissive and degrading acts outside of sex that I get off to (and not just fake it all the time for male partners). HOWEVER I think it’s just a result of my past sexual experiences with my first ever bf. He started calling me a slut, slapping me and all that stuff after the first few times we had sex. At first I really hated it but was too much of a pussy to tell him (I was like 18 and inexperienced + stupidly tried to please him as much as I could). And later I started getting turned on by it as well. Sometimes even more than he did and asked for more. Years later I’m still into that kind of stuff. So I guess he’s one of the main reasons why. I think if he had treated me differently during sex, I probably wouldn’t even think of doing those kinds of things now.

So in the end 95% of the time it’s just the influence of men, from what I’ve seen and experienced.

Because if you grow the fuck up and know that you don’t enjoy something or don’t want it from someone, you usually have the ability to develop self defense mechanisms so you don’t back yourself into a corner and victimize yourself again. This can be any number of things, like depending on someone financially and then using “providing for you” as a reason for why you should give them what they want, but you could also very easily put a fucking knife in his stomach and steal his money, the way millions of wives and women have done before us.

That was a little like my feeling, that it's a performance and they get off to the performance. Which is fair enough, I'm just not sure are we supposed to suspend disbelief that they actually enjoy it or not? Or is them not enjoying it part of the pleasure for men? I just want to know WHY. From both perspectives. Do dominant men get sexual pleasure from physically hurting a woman, or do they think she is somewhat enjoying herself and they get pleasure from that? Or what? I get off on hurting men but it's 100% about them being so desperate to have sex with me that I can hurt them and make them do whatever I want and have such power over them. I never assumed they get any pleasure from being hurt or humiliated but recently I met a sub who does and I'm confused about is what I experience the norm or are my brain wires crossed wrong.

I've been wanting to talk to my ex lately which is weird because he was abhorrent in the relationship. But also not weird because he was my only "friend". I guess I feel weird not holding a grudge. I don't think what he last did is forgiveable, but here I am. Since I'm not attracted to him romantically anymore, I don't care what he does. I don't think I should be friends with someone like him, but then again alot of people are friends with people that do stuff they disagree with right? so why should I be any different when craving his friendship? I guess what I'm asking is am I right to think this way and should go for it, hit him up? Or is it weak to forgive?

It really depends on what he did and what drove you guys apart. Did you just have different values/priorities or did he just treat you terribly? If it’s the latter it’s not worth it and you can forgive him without contacting him.

That’s what I mean. There’s no blame on the individual. Nothing is wrong with somebody who is depressed while dealing with social and economic pressures, it’s a normal reaction to an inescapable stressful situation. It doesn’t mean they’re ill, it means that there are wider social problems. It’s easier to throw antidepressants at people who are sad and unproductive than it is to change the system which is causing them such stress.

That seems retarded to me, if you want to reduce suffering you need to help people make material changes to their lives, not teach them just to breathe through it. Meditation and pills aren’t going to help you if you’re living in a shithole with no community around you and no future beyond working in a soul crushing menial job for the rest of your life. No chance of owning a home, no pension, no access to education, and nobody who gives a shit because everyone thinks they have it worse. I think a lot of functional psych cases are just people in bleak situations with self awareness.

Japanese is one of the most difficult, time-consuming languages to learn for a native English speaker (assuming you are one). I personally can't imagine it's worth all that time and energy investment just for understanding some media and maybe traveling there. Especially if your taste in weeb media isn't that obscure and most of it gets English (fan) translations. It could be worth it if you enjoy the process of learning the language as a hobby on it's own I guess.

I doubt it will ever be a world language given how slow Japan is to progress. China is ok with foreigners learning their language if they want to do labor for them and chinese companies are constantly scouting for specialists from the west (at least in my tech adjacent industry); japan on the other hand really doesn't want people to come into their own space. Learning Japanese is honestly good just for one's own fun, nothing else.

Yeah I was talking about my own country. The normal school for worker/normal jobs ends when you are 16 here. Highschool doesn't exist there is only another type of school you can choose if you want to go to university afterwards, that school ends when you are 18.
You don't pay for schools or university here and university is pretty different from school, you only have one or two subjects there, it's more like a complex apprenticeship for a specific academic job.

Caffeine can perk you up but it's not a good long term solution to fatigue since your body gets used to it pretty quickly and you start needing more and more for the same effect. If you start drinking a lot of caffeine it will start to make it hard to fall asleep which will negatively affect your energy levels obviously. If you can keep it to a reasonable limit it's fine. Best to have it as an occasional treat in my opinion.
I would start with sleep hygiene if I was you. Sleep when the sun is down. Don't eat within 2-3 hours of bed time (don't drink alcohol either). Sleep for eight-nine hours. Make sure your bedroom is completely dark, no little lights anywhere, blackout your windows etc. Make sure your room isn't too hot. Keep a bottle of water by your bedside so you don't have to get up if you are thirsty. Just some ideas.

Also you need to accept the loss, and workout more. What do they say? That if the benefits could be put into a pill, it'd be the best drug invented of all kind.

Affirmations – brainwash yourself into believing you are someone with high self esteem.
Little things like standing up straight can make a big difference for your personal self image (mind/body connection keeps you in the present, feeling solid and aware of yourself) not to mention how others see you.
That's just a general broad answer. Really depends on you and your situation. If you are in a bad situation or dealing with trauma it might not be so simple.

To the Amerifags here–is the high school stereotype of "popular kids" (evil blonde cheerleaders and brutish football players) being fawned and feared at at the same time actually a thing???

I'm not from the US but have consumed a lot of American media since my single digits and always saw these characters on the screen. Since my country's high school heirachy and student types are waaaay different than the US, I always believed those archetypes only existed in fictionaland.

But then I read some American autobio graphic novels (Blankets and My Friend Dahmer–of all things I know…), and there are scenes in both comics where the characters have to deal with the classic quarterback bullies you see in movies. And when I read those scene I was legitimately like: "Wait what? these people exist and aren't just movie-made stereotypes??".

I was very alt and very loud about what i thought was wrong in high school and also a first gen child of Slav immigrants so of course many of them mercilessly hated me. A lot of people attempted to bully me but I was too mean/angry for any of it to stick lmao. I got in a lot of verbal altercations with mean bitchy girls, psychotic red necks, AND football douchebags.

not at mine there were barely any white students to begin with, much less blonde but it depends where you live like the other anon said. the popular kids i encountered were nice, although mean students existed too but idk if they were actually popular. this was also a school with tons of, like thousands and thousands of students despite being in the suburbs so sometimes not everyone was even going to be remembered by everyone else outside of specific classes or events

Yeah very much depends on the makeup of the school like statistics, demographics. American schools are weirdly tribal too. I went to like 3 different inner city schools kek. Different kids are popular with different sectors of the student body. There’s a clear divide at my schools about who’s popular amongst the middle class students (homecoming king and queen, academic stars, student council) and who’s popular amongst the rest of the school (athletes, theater/band divas, party kids). Whether they’re nice or mean really depends on who you are.

it depends on the school. I went to a rural public high school in a wealthier area. the popular kids were the smartest, most athletic, nicest and (usually) the most attractive people. There were both rich and poor kids who were popular, but still smart/nice/athletic/attractive. There was usually one or two boys and girls in the popular cliques that were mean, ugly and stupid, but they were nice to the right people. My school had almost zero minorities, but the popular clique was definitely not exclusively blonde. The nicest and most put together popular girl in my year was blonde, though.
After that, there was the normal/nerd/alt groups. They had a lot of overlap with the popular kids because they were also in the advanced classes. They were invited to the same parties, but they had their own cliques. They did different sports, but were often still athletic, could be pretty attractive, and were usually nice as well.
The weird kids were usually early genderspecials, furries, spergs, burnouts, stupid people and sketchy kids.
Being out as gay at my school was not a big deal, so gay and lesbian people were either popular or in the normal cliques. They avoided the “rainbow hair” types.
Most of the fights and drama happened within cliques, and since it was a small school, it was rare that someone was bullied. If you were disliked, you were really just left alone.

How do I reject a proposal for friendship if I'm in the same hobby group and will see the people again in a recreational environment?

I'm going to an event specifically for making friends but there are people I know going there who I strongly suspect will want to be my actual friend and I don't know how to turn them down because I used to be very uncool and never developed that skillset of "sorry i'm too cool to hang out with you".

can you actually train yourself to lucid dream? i know that lucid dreaming is real, because when i was a child i'd occasionally have nightmares that were so terrifying that i'd become lucid like midway through and either just dissipate whatever was scaring me (by moving away from it intentionally) or wake myself up. i'd like to lucid dream again (about people i like, in particular. or different fantastical situations), but all of the info i've read online about "training yourself to lucid dream" sounds fishy. and despite how much effort i put into it, i'm not capable of lucid dreaming voluntarily. maybe i'm just not especially susceptible to the phenomena though.

I don’t really “practice” in day to day life, but I’ve become quite good at noticing when I’m dreaming here and there. It can depend on the dream. Long story though. Basically it needs to be a bad dream I want to wake up from. The mirror trick works well (mirrors make no sense in dreams). Other times I’ve tested to see if I’m dreaming by turning my dream-self into an animal. Once I dreamt I was running down a hallway (a hallway that has been in previous dreams) and I said to myself “ok, if this is a dream, I will morph into an obese german shepherd”, then I morphed into an obese german shepherd.

i learned to lucid dream when I was younger because of night terrors. I'll still get night terrors sometimes, but if I'm being crushed or drowned, I can wake myself up or escape with a brief window of lucid dreaming. idk how to exactly "train" it but the trick I came up with was imagining myself jumping on a trampoline as i try to sleep. i basically imagined a slight vertigo and freefall in my brain whenever I would picture myself jumping up and down until the psychosomatic sensations feel very strong, usually till I fall asleep. now I can trigger a super intense vertigo in my dreams to jolt myself awake on a whim, and I can occasionally get a free roam dream where I can do what I want for a section of time. tho doing that consistently also made my brain figure out how to dream realistic pain and dying sensations on the regular, plus some occasional sex sensations. think its a lot harder to train unless you dream a lot but taking melatonin as a teen gave me a headstart on it imo

I did, we only did it for a couple of transition periods but homeschooling was the best time of my entire academic life. I was bullied pretty bad growing up so it was a nice respite, and I love learning so my parents didn't have to push me much. They had to send me to a tutoring program for math, but otherwise were able to cover subjects themselves.
My parents are old and were starting retirement at the time though, most people don't have the kind of resources adequately needed to school their kids. tbh homeschooling rarely works even under ideal circumstances. The whole thing can turn messy fast if parents don't have enough time/interest, if kids aren't self-motivated to learn, or if the family doesn't have outside support. I had some of the best experiences someone can have for home-school and I can't actually recommend it unless the whole family is dedicated. Sorry for blogsperg

No, I eat oranges by cutting them in wedges, lemons I have to cut in slices and then divided into four. I used to to keep them in halfmoon shapes, but the corners of my mouth started to get irritated, so I don't let it touch my skin now. The exact fact that it probably won't last forever is what makes me worried, because I feel like my teeth are getting easier to irritate, but I keep telling myself it's because I'm too lazy to floss or something like that.

how do I stop slurring my words? I don't know what's wrong, but something is wrong with my speech. I speak two languages, and I speak like an absolute retard in both, so it's 100% me. It's holding me back a lot, academically, career-wise, and social-wise. The last one especially bothers me most, trying to make connections with people is already difficult for me, when I push myself, I end up having to repeat myself so much my anxiety shoots through the roof and I avoid interacting with the person again because it's embarrassing and I assume they won't wanna talk to me again. I try to slow down, but that just gives me ample time to be able to overthink things(I live in my head), making me say incoherent stuff in the process of trying to be clear. I'm just so tired of not being able to express myself like I want to.

I have the same problem nona. My best advice is think before you speak. Generally when im speaking I don't even know what im saying and it all starts to slur once I realize I don't know what im even processing in my brain.

NTA but it’s ok to speak slowly, repeat yourself and make pauses. You probably think it more awkward than it is. I have a problem with tripping over my words, speaking too fast and too loud, losing my train of thought mid-sentence from anxiety/ADHD. I stop, take a deep breath, maybe say “sorry I’m getting excited” or “sorry I’m a bit nervous” and try again slower. Nobody ever seems to mind or reacts weirdly to it. People generally are really nice about it whenever I’m honest about not being a smooth talker.

Please take care of your teeth, I know it sounds patronizing but no matter what your genetics are you’re still dousing your enamel in a strong acid really often.

If nothing else just don’t brush immediately after because that also erodes the teeth and use some Sensodyne shit, doesn’t reverse erosion but takes care of what you still have and stops the pain.

I know some women here have a bit more acrimonious feelings than I do, so I wanted to ask – how does it work to be attracted to the opposite sex but hate them to some extent? I've never understood when scrotes do it, beyond just literal objectification, so I thought I'd ask y'all here.

Unlike men, women can perceive the individual specimen of male as an individual human being and allows him empathy. That doesn’t have to get in the way of a woman recognizing males as an oppressor class.
You cite your boyfriend (the one singular male) as your reason for not hating men, you said you don’t closely engage with other men outside of him, you view your boyfriend as representative of moid kind. Do you see how that influences your view? I would bet that you have experienced instances of misogyny but you compartmentalize them because as long as the men in your life weren’t the perpetrators of such acts, your idealized view of men can remain intact. It’s a much more comfortable way to live.

All of history or specific events? The Great War by Indy Neidell is an excellent week-by-week documentary series that covers all of WW1, and his production company also has a similar series about WW2. Both series have over a hundred episodes and were posted in full on YouTube by the creators themselves. The Death of Yugoslavia and Medieval Lives: Birth Marriage Death both by the BBC are also good deep dives into their respective topics. Others I know of are The Civil War by Ken Burns, Barbarians by Terry Jones, and Connections by James Burke.

I cook three meals a day. Here’s my tips for groceries for a week:
>>Two to three protein sources. Veg for example: Tofu and Lentils or Meat examples: a pack of chicken and a pack of pork chops.
>>At least two major carbs. Either two packs of pasta, a bag of potatoes, a bag of rice, etc.
>>Three types of veggies you’ll eat and can use for multiple things. Think carrots you can roast, eat raw with ranch, put in soup, stir fries or Zucchini you can sauté, put in bread, roast, stir fry, etc.
>>Fats: Butter and cooking oil of choice I use fruit mostly so olive oil (do not blend olive oil it will bruise and be very bitter, do not bake with olive oil it will make the whole thing taste like olive oil.)
>>Other Basics I Buy Regularly: Bag of onions, bag of garlic, carton of eggs, two to three packs of berries for fruit/snack, spices.
the key is ingredients you can flex into different things and use multiple ways. Shoot for a protein and a carb with one or two veggies a meal. Plan around your week. If you know you’re not going to have time prep things like soups and chilies you can heat and eat during the week after one cook session. Rice cookers or instapots are great if you like rice as a carb, but not necessary.
Honestly the more you learn to cook and what you like the faster you get at it and the easier it gets.

Another anon has given good tips but I also keep a folder on my computer with pdfs of recipes! It takes a while to build up, but eventually I’ll just go through and pick one I want for dinner. I organize it by like “chicken dishes” or “tofu” or “noodles” or “vegetable side dishes” so I can usually just think “what am I in the mood for?” then open up folder and go through recipes.

You can just google basic recipes and then once you land on a food blog, go through their recipes and save others you think you’d like to make in the future! It’s definitely helped me, especially one days when I don’t know what to cook.

idk but please give it a chance, i beg you

No. 1428468

>>1428454
People argue that it's not becuase they've made - and never released - a live action one-shot of it before Night Vale started airing; but what can be found from said live action (few screencaps of production) looks nothing like Night Vale and the animation that was released in 2017 (so 5 years after WTNV) borrows HEAVILY from the aesthetic everyone associates with WNTV, and even the wiki states that along with new, animated version of the project they've changed the structure of it to the one that matches night vale closely. TBH i'm annoyed when people claim that "since the pilot was made before WTNV" then it must be wntv that stole it, while it's obvious that it's still the other way around, given the Kirilian Frequency was reconceptualized after night vale's rise to fame.
Ultimately there's no solid proof for either so that's just my opinion.

In the beginning, as the hunger gets worse and worse, you search for food really desperately and you'll try to eat all kind of things, even non food items, but as time goes on you get weaker and weaker so you move as little as possible and you just lay there drifting in and out of sleep in a stupor. So it mostly looks like someone sighs deeply in their sleep and then is dead, or they may open their eyes and blink weakly before the lids kinda slide shut but not completely, then the eyes go fixed and the face goes more slack.

No it's "lack of exposition" because everybody is an attention whore.
The thought behind this is that when someone QTs you you aren't getting the "likes" the QT gets. So far it's true, the thing is that they never get many for art and it's always the artists that complain. I draw as well and when someone QTs me they get like 3 likes and the likers will usually click on the image itself as well and like directly too.

I think it's annoying because it's just another case of unnecessary policing to brand harmless fans as evil. Everytime I get QTs it's always the nicest shit possible, with people talking about my art and considering it too important for a reply, so they QT it to have it on their dashboard for followers to see.

It's usually just praise and talking about the artwork in detail so no idea why so many are so adamant about insta-blocking everybody that does this.

Yeah all of that was long ago, like centuries ago, then some previous king, François 1er iirc, forced all of France to adopt the one French language, expect entire cultures don't just disappear because you force kids at school to never use their 1st language in public. Same deal with Corsica (their local language sounds like a mix of Italian and French, if you watch that one movie about some young guy in prison for some petty crime the old mafioso sometimes speaks that language and subtitles will appear but it's easy to guess what he says) or Pays basque or Alsaciens (their local language is very similar to German), etc. And you'll see in some regions that local words are used in French like how in Lyon you'll hear people say "pélo" as an equivalent of "guy" or "dude" despite the old local languages not being used or taught anymore. You cab sometimes guess where someone is from just based on first names btw.
