32 male living in USA
My only form of investment is my contribution to my 401k plan. My company uses fidelity and I’m currently contributing 15% and my company matches 6%.
Question : the ticker symbol is FFLDX target date index fund. Should I stick with that or maybe switch to another one?
I contribute about 20k a year to the plan and want to make sure it’s going to a good option.

2023.05.29 07:37 Such-Purpose-3437 (Is this the right way to look at life? Advice needed) I think I'm screwed: But I think I'm okay with it...
Autistic F 21, on a throwaway account.
I don't think I'll live a stable life, how can I be okay with this?
For context: I have ADHD, Chronic Depression since I was 11, and probably Autism (they threw me four other diagnoses, but I think it's just autism). I have been told I am off-putting and intimidating. A Wednesday Addams of a person, unemotive, and too gangly and thin(this is important later).
I love writing, always thrived in English Class. Music and other forms of art. A thing I love is watching psychology and Sociology topic videos on Youtube, and I've been doing this since I was young.
In Highschool I ignored all my passions and worked hard in math in science. Earning my rural school's department award for math (having taken 7 math courses in four years, four at the college level). But I hated it. Hated what I was. Stressed, anxious with no social life.
Then Quarantine hit. I was nothing. I hated everything I was working toward and didn't want to stick around. Throw on questioning my gender, and sexuality and trying to work to stay in school? Yeah, no, my brain blew up for a bit. I couldn't even pass Intro to Calculus, a class I struggled with before...I looked at myself and realized I wasn't enough to exist there. I wasn't smart enough to do my dream job of prosthetic design in medical engineering.
So I burnt out of college after my first semester and went back to my home town tail between my legs. Did another semester in Nursing at my community college and hated it, same with a full year in computer science/programming. Everything I did 'because it will get you a good job' was awful. I hated programming, both front and back end. During this time I worked. I've held down six or so jobs, where I'd leave due to being overwhelmed, stressed, or done with being 'nice' to bigots all day.
Including trying to work for the Railroad(trades aren't for me. I'm 130lbs soaking wet, 5'10, and visibly queer. I've looked into most trade fields, but I can't deal with how inhumane and selfish people who work them tend to be. I couldn't upsell people, I just can't. I've seen the elderly make $100 stretch for a month for groceries. I'd be making less due to not scamming people who don't know better.) but it didn't last for two weeks.
So now I look at my life and really sit with it. I want to go and become a therapist. Everyone I've had as a therapist was rude, unsympathetic, didn't ask any probing questions and/or were blatantly homophobic(even after I'd come out). I was told by one that my 'ADHD Diagnosis must be wrong because I'm a 'woman', and that's a little boy's disease'. So the bar is low. But 50k a year? God, for something with a master's degree?
Again. I know society is going so tech-focused, but people need someone to look at everything in their life and help them pull back the layers. Therapists won't go away. Hell, I want the WFH life. To be able to work online. I live in a rural US state, and I know I could help change so many lives, so many fellow Queer or mentally unwell, people just through video calls...
I don't think I have too many other options. I hate math now. Most degrees and paths discussed here don't work for me because you'd need up to Calc 3 and I just can't. I've retaken Calc 1 3 fucking times, both self-paced and with tutors, it doesn't click for me. I'm done. So yeah. I'm kind of fucked, stuck on a path where I'll be underpaid and mistreated. But I think I'm okay with it?
Our world is full of so many that get lucky. People that are antisocial, get jobs that pay amazing wages, and they can thrive in. But I'm not that person. I don't have friends, if I go to college it will be online, so no social circle to pass my name around. I will need to get through all this shit through blind luck. But I don't think I'll be miserable. Paycheck to paycheck, yeah, but I'm doing that now.
I've been putting off finding an online college for psychology (or another specialty). I know it's a fucking gamble, and that I'm doomed to not have a 'safe investment' but besides living in my parent's basement and making 20k a year, I don't have any other ideas. This is the start of a life I could be happy in. I just want to find a job where I don't become an empty uncreative shell, maybe get married, and have time to write. That's it.
Is this a step in the right direction, what would you do?

2023.05.29 07:37 wagdron Preposition for the New Paradigm of the Future
I can suggest an equation that has the potential to impact the future:
E = mc² + Al
This equation combines Einstein's famous equation E=mc², which relates energy (E) to mass (m) and the speed of light (c), with the addition of Al (Artificial Intelligence). By including Al in the equation, it symbolizes the increasing role of artificial intelligence in shaping and transforming our future. This equation highlights the potential for Al to unlock new forms of energy, enhance scientific discoveries, and revolutionize various fields such as healthcare, transportation, and technology.

The growth trends in the packaging, medical, construction, and automotive sectors have necessitated the fabrication of innovative and advanced adhesives. It is a crucial factor which has led to developments in the overall resin materials. Also, adhesive manufacturers are continuously focused on material enhancement to incorporate advanced and nano-sized elements into adhesives, which would help to cater the growing consumer demands. Backed by these factors, the global adhesives market accounted for a market value of USD 47,398.70 million in 2019 and is estimated to garner USD 63,557.20 million by 2028 by growing at a CAGR of 4.6% during the forecast period, i.e.,2021-2028. Request Report Sample@ https://www.researchnester.com/sample-request-2826
Geographically, the global adhesives market is segmented into five major regions including North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa. Among these, the market in Asia Pacific region accounted for the largest market share in terms of both the value and volume in the global adhesives market in 2019 and is expected to hold this position throughout the forecast period. The region’s ever improving macroeconomic factors including population, GDP and per capita income among others, coupled with the increasing sales of automobiles, packed foods, textiles, footwear, and others where adhesives are used massively, tends to influence the market growth in this region. China accounted for a significant share of the Asia Pacific adhesive market. This is attributed to the increasing use of adhesives in end-user industries such as construction, automotive, electronics, and others.
The global adhesives market is segmented by formulation technology into solvent-based, water-based, radiation cured (UV/EB), and hot melt. Amongst these, hot melt segment is the fastest growing segment which is estimated to touch USD 12,375.30 million by the end of 2020 growing at a rate of 5.4% during the forecast period backed by factors including longer shelf life, ability to be disposed, and reduced VOC emissions. Water-based segment forms the most significant technological segment valued at USD 18,826.10 million in the year 2019 owing to its non-hazardous and eco-friendly nature.

2023.05.29 07:35 alwaysIeep I don’t like my birth family, I’m glad I was adopted.
I’ve been adopted since birth, it was an open adoption so I have been able to maintain some form of a relationship with my birth family throughout the years.
Despite knowing and having contact with my family, and having a great relationship with my adoptive family, my adoption has caused me a bit of trauma and has been the pin point for many of my therapy sessions in the past.
Fast forward 20ish years I finally got the opportunity to live with my birth family, while I am very grateful that they took me in and felt blessed to have the opportunity to exist with them in a reality in which other adoptees might dream of, I fucking hated it.
This less than pleasant experience would’ve crushed younger me, but it’s really freeing to me now. It feels like years of feeling less than or being afraid to be abandoned has been lifted off my shoulders. I wish I could go back to give my younger self a hug and tell her she doesn’t have to be perfect to be deserving of love.

my graduation was supposed to my big day but of course my toxic family had to chime in and ruin it. form them trying to get me to invite my toxic ass unsporting sister that has spoken bad about me for years because “that’s family” to not complaining about my graduation dress because i’m too fat in it and look like a whore and a disappointment to my father. they’ve made this all about them and not me and are making it a big deal to even do as little as pick up my cake. i’ve had to go through the whole graduation process by myself with zero help from them because they’re simply “too busy”. this is way too stressful i feel like just not going anymore.

2023.05.29 07:34 Sea_Pumpkin303 AITAH for not wanting to send letters and make calls for my grand aunt
familydrama #aitah For the past few weeks, I (21F) have had to help send letters and make calls, on behalf of my grandaunt (63F). My grandaunt has been having issues with her neighbours living above her apartment as they constantly throw rubbish onto her front porch. She has tried to reach out to multiple authorities and no-one has taken the issue seriously enough to solve. This has been going on for one and a half years now.
My mother (47F) is her landlord, however she is extremely busy as a single mother with 3 jobs. Thus, my mother has asked me to sort out this issue for my grandaunt. I have had to visit my grandaunt multiple times throughout the weeks to collect details, compile photos, make phone calls and send letters to authorities. Still nothing has been done.
Today, she has been sent a form to fill out and send to another authority. Without even looking at the form, my grandaunt is now asking me to come to her place and fill it in person. It takes me 40 minutes just to drive to her place and I am tired of having to do this frequently just to handle matters that I believe should not be my responsibility. I’ve asked her to send a photo of the form and I can instruct her on how to fill it over the phone.
She did not like this at all and just wants me to come to her place and get it done myself. The form itself is not difficult to fill as most of it asks for basic personal details like address, phone number etc. My grandaunt is well able to write these things. It appears to me that she has become used to getting the help and does not want to attempt anything herself because of the expectation that I will do it.
Because all of this takes up my own free time, and I am just expected to get them done or else I am called selfish, I have decided not to help her further. So AITAH?

2023.05.29 07:34 A_Very_Calm_Miata Conservatives and their dumb ideas
Let's face it. India as a country, is trash. And it's mainly because of conservatives.
I'm talking about WhatsApp/Facebook circle jerk 'omg India best', 'omg old Indians so smort' boomers here. They are the ones resisting change. And stopping India from growing because growing is 'not traditional' and we should 'respect our roots'. We are grateful for what the roots did but shouldn't we grow as a country and make the roots proud?
We should stop saying that obeying our superiors and following rules without a question is the definition of a good citizen. No. That's a good soldier. That was a lie spread by the British introduced education system (as boomerish it sounds, think abt it and you will understand why). This system of obeying archaic shit isn't going to get us anywhere. It's killing entrepreneurial spirit and creativity.
And the people who say everything foreign is bad are dumbasses. Look around you. In almost every nook and corner in India there will be a foreign object. Made there, sourced there, designed there, in some form or the other there will be a foreign object. But again we see boomers saying 'Indian goods are finest in the world' and bs. Then use them mfs! Don't buy cellphones or electronics made outside India. And those MNCs you or your family members work for? Who do you think owns them. Foreign parent companies. OMG don't work for them anymore! Go back to the fucking stone age! Now that is completely pure desi India! (/s ofc)
All I'm saying is, the ones obstructing our nation's growth is boomers. Not necessarily old people. I know very progressive old people and highly prejudiced youngsters. And its sad to see teens afflicted by this disease too...
We as the next generation must change this.
Or leave this shithole and go someplace else. Idk upto you.

2023.05.29 07:33 HotDogWaterEnjoyer HELP PLEASE
Please give me some advice. So when I filled my i20 request form, my friend volunteered to show funds just so I could get my i20 faster. This friend is also more than willing to pay that amount if needed since. Eighty percent of my funding is coming from an education loan that I’ve gotten and the rest is being covered by this friend. Now here’s the thing, my friend is working in the US using his STEM OPT and he’s leaving US next year. I know that could be a problem. But at the time my father did not have enough funds to show in my i20. By the time I’ll have the interview he’ll have arranged the rest of the money. Is there any way I can change the sponsor? Should I just go ahead and tell the officer that my dad will be funding the rest? Or should I prepare my answers in a different way? Please please help me out.
Also, I have absolutely nobody in the US and my entire family is my own country.

2023.05.29 07:32 georgeavecs So what is initiation?
In today’s rambling, I want to share my understanding, so far, about initiation, particularly in what interests me: Freemasonry. You might say an initiation is an initiation regardless of the spiritual school. That’s where I beg to differ. Some of my Brethren for the past couple of months have been hearing, randomly, me asking one question: Please name one spiritual school that has initiated millions of people. I never got an answer till one brother from another Mother said: “billions not just millions. Christianity and Islam are one example. Here’s a book. Forget everything you know and read it.”
So what in the name of Hiram Abiff’s trowel is initiation?
I believe that it’s not just a ceremonial act, but a journey: a transformative journey of self-discovery and “enlightenment”. That’s nice to hear. I can package it in twelve other different ways, but to illustrate it, I want you to imagine yourself gazing at a vast ocean, and an even vaster sky above it. The horizon, a thin line between the water and the sky. It’s in this place we embark on the journey of initiation. The ocean and skies symbolize the vast expanse of knowledge and experience that awaits us from both sides of the spectrum.
Freemasonry, as an institution of spiritual initiation, uses symbols as the means of our instruction. These symbols are enigmatic, inviting each initiate to meditate on their meanings. They serve as guides, answering spiritual and material questions. However, interpreting these answers is as unique as the individual. Each Brother’s understanding depends on their mentality, their experiences, and their journey.
Masonic initiation is not about revealing the secrets of occult sciences. Nor is it about studying or practicing them: it is about transformation. Our initiation is a journey from being the "rough ashlar" to becoming a "new man". This "new man" is not only capable of understanding the true value of these sciences, but is also devoted to the pursuit of perfection. As difficult as it might be to attain it.
Oswald Wirth referred to this pursuit as the "Art of Living". This art encompasses the development of our spirituality, cultivation of our morals, and a disciplined lifestyle that shapes our personality (read, tame our ego). As we take our first steps towards the Light, we commit to obligations of morality, discretion, discipline, silence, and solidarity. These commitments form the bedrock of our initiation.
The journey to Light is not a straight path. It’s a winding road filled with twists and turns. René Guénon likened the initiation ceremony to the starting point of this journey. But the journey itself is what he called the "real initiation". It requires continuous efforts from the Master Mason, the patience to overcome obstacles, and the humility to learn from every step taken.
We are like rough ashlars, gradually smoothed and shaped to fit into the grand edifice of universal Beauty. This journey towards perfection is underpinned by Wisdom, Strength, and Beauty. Wisdom helps us conceive and give form to our universe of ideas. Strength serves as the active, creative element. Beauty represents the selfless love that should reign over the world. An alternative way of seeing them?
As we continue on this journey, we learn to love without selfishness. A true initiate loves to love and not to be loved. Remember, initiation is not about the destination. It’s the journey itself. It’s an ever-evolving process of becoming, transcending, and seeking the Divine within and beyond us.
If we put in the work, the path to initiation unfolds before us. It beckons us to step forward, to embrace the challenges, to seek the truth, and to embody Love.
As we venture into the depths of initiation, we become students of life. Every experience, every interaction, and every moment becomes a lesson. Trust me on this. This journey instructs us to transcend our self-centeredness and the material world, and to recognize the fundamental spiritual principles that govern the universe. It guides us to realize our potential and encourages us to strive for a higher purpose.
It’s a journey that requires courage. We must face our fears, confront our weaknesses, and challenge our limitations. It’s a journey of self-discovery, where we learn about our true selves, not the personas we present to the world, but our authentic selves that live within us.
I cannot stress this enough: It’s a journey of Love. A true Freemason learns to love selflessly, to give without expecting, and to serve without seeking reward. This journey nurtures our ability to love, opening our hearts to the beauty of the world and the divine within us.
What lies beyond the horizon? I am still searching, within.

2023.05.29 07:32 We_Are_Legion The Choice (A calm, clarifying letter to moderates, containing an overview of the terrain of the question of Islam and our current position on this leg of the journey to truth)
| || | submitted by We_Are_Legion to exmuslim [link] [comments]
The Choice https://preview.redd.it/3hfg6ns40r2b1.png?width=464&format=png&auto=webp&s=7436829b1d72704fcaa85ed8413c58e91de4b54a
The truth is that the Islam we were taught in school and by our parents, teachers and society... is watered down. I am not trying to offend you. It is just that you are not informed on these matters. You are not informed because our various Ulema and governments saw fit to hide it from you. Our rulers are concerned what Muslims become when they find out true islam; they think it leads to violence and social problems that they seek to rid. Our elites and educated simply want to live secular lives and pursue development. So more and more as the muslim world has been entering the modern era (1920s onward), they've been watering down and muzzling islam, and giving people a carefully diluted religion because its convenient. That's what "moderate Islam" is. Though they do re-indoctrinate us on true islam when they need us to fight insurgencies (e.g. mujahideen against soviets) and face problems trying to turn off true islam when they're done (e.g. taliban against pakistan).
In hiding true shariah viewpoints on issues from you, they also hid the core meaning and intent of Islamic philosophy. Which the watered down Islam does not contain. Islam is not some vague spirituality with praying and fasting. It is not sufi-ism. Here's a rule of thumb; if it aint Shariah, it aint Islam. Islam is a total way of life for a citizen of a theocratic religious-supremacist state. Right now, you suspect this but wont fully understand this state's harsh rulings because you are not given key parts of genuine islamic philosophy in "moderate islam".
There are two kinds of people who discover genuine islamic philosophy;
- The ex-muslims; hard to get accurate statistics but estimated 3-6% of Pakistan's population and growing, also reports of 30% of gen Z in Turkey and 40% of Iran's population (according to optimistic surveys, but even if its less, its almost certainly greater than 40% of Iran's youth).
- the fundamentalists; can be anyone that understands the fundamentals ranging from salafists, wahabbists, to hardcore molvis, extremist uncles, taliban to ISIS. Research shows extremist attitudes are really high among people who didnt go to western schools but instead listened to their well-informed and unfiltered rural molvi who got true islam from one of theses: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Islamic_fundamentalism#Islamic_fundamentalist_groups
. I dont like them but atleast they're self-honest so I like them *more* than the moderates.
A moderate muslim may often be found sitting and scratching his or her head about why these two groups exist... as they don't believe their religion is false nor do they believe their religion is violent or extreme or propagates harmful opinions that infringe on rights and freedom of others. They're often crying about islamophobia at the ex-muslims/western islamic scholars that understand islam or decrying that "you ignorant molvis ruined islam" at the fundamentalists who also understand islam. (Not realizing that 95% of molvis on earth are trying their best to push "moderate islam". And its only 5% of molvis choose to go back to fundamentalsm.)
In reality, only the ex-muslims and fundamentalists get it. The moderates are clueless. Their careful state-constructed Islamiat education is shocked when they discover the Islamic religion is violent, is repressive, is extreme, does have self-righteous cult-like tendancies, is not compatible with many modern humanist values and never was. And never tried to be or was intended to be. And that it DOESNT give them the rights and freedoms they've been enjoying as a citizen of a country ruled by secular, humanist values. Examples of this are shariah views on (slavery, forced marriage, child marriage, gender equality, offensive warfare, dhimmi subjugation, and much more)
SO...The Choice we are facing is
- whether to stay asleep in "moderate Islam lala-land" (which is represented by the bright happy forest in this photo. But beware that though it appears enticing and attractive... but because its a lie... its a trap. Lies are always poison. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-PwJLA5M958 Especially when they form the foundation of a society. You will always have a fractured, sect-filled, half-modern, half-medieval, hypocritical and doubt-filled Pakistan on this path.)OR
- to self-honestly examine what Islam really is. (The fundamentalists/extremists and ex-muslims put together their discovieries very well. Choose either and they will guide you to the harsh truths that moderates hid.) This path is represented by the dark forest in the photo and it takes courage to venture into the ugly depths. You are thinking for yourself. This is hard but because its facing the truth, its the correct choice over time.)
IF you choose the dark forest, there is a further fork in this road.
2A) You can choose to accept the actual philosophical tenets of Islam, complete with associated violent, supremacist commands and its contradictions, strange science and become closer and closer to ISIS. In this option, you subordinate your reason to god and say "Oh Allah, though there are things in your Shariah that offend my modern-education trained intellect, heart and conscience, I'm just not smart enough to review your wisdom and so I'll obey unquestioningly."
2B) You think for yourself and examine whether the foundations of what Islam claims is true or not; i.e. whether it truly comes from god or not. No pre-packaged conclusions from me or anyone else. You think for yourself and find the truth.
(i.e. See if the first principles are solid and support the next concept without conjecture or invalid reasoning. Is it possible to have character growth or did Islam reach ultimate of all ideas for all time? Which you can judge by whether each concept in true Islam is actually a stronger alternative to those reached by reason in the world. Examine and understand both and see which is more likely to be true. (for example, i recall comparing Shariah vs Natural Rights under "Why Nations Fail" framework and chose the latter. I recall realizing Islam genuinely didn't predict technology would change mode of life so much. Or comparing Islam vs evolution and chose the latter. Or found peace outside Islam and realizing islam didnt hold any monopoly on spirituality. Or Islam's views on morality. Saw non-muslims could be good and close to god. I ended up rejecting Quran's philosophy that lack of gullibility is worth torture and compulsion in this world and the next.)
I reached 2B.
I'm past it.
I really will not promise you a medal if you get here. There's no prize. It's... nothing.
But its not a lie.
For me, that makes it non-optional.
It is also a path that can lead to many more places and many more truths.The scientific revolution happened here as Europe rejected the Bible's views on reality and sought to think for themselves.Constitutions and human rights happened here as philosophers rejected the Bible's morality and said that humanity can have some character growth.Women's rights happened here too so girls and boys can have equal opportunities and whatnot.And no, there's no new ideology you have to follow (and in fact, if you do, thats a new trap). Because now that you think for yourself, you are in charge of your own destiny. In a mysterious universe that you can discover anew.
Honestly, you can do, be whatever you want. Sing, dress how you want, not fight over religion, not have to worry what your ideology thinks.
You can even learn about the mind and its ego, and conquer it. Which is perhaps the ultimate and only thing worth doing in this life.
It isn't productive to linger here at 2B once you're past it and pick on a dead, defenseless horse like religion. Except maybe to hold the lantern to guide the next person who comes here (many of us are haunted to do this). But I guess a task even more worthy than that is to unearth the next false belief in us. And continue onwards in our journey to truth.
2023.05.29 07:32 Evbdy Mi hermana quiere que ya no me meta en su vida pero no puedo evitarlo
Yo y tengo una hermana que últimamente ha estado cometiendo muchos errores. Para poner un poco el contexto, ella tenía un grupo de amigos (mayormente hombres y pocas mujeres) con el que salía pero mayormente los veía cuando ella los invitaba a nuestra casa. Ellos normalmente eran un poco descorteses, ponían música muy fuerte y dejaban todo sucio. A nadie le altero esto pues era una fiesta típica de adolescentes. Lo que le comenzó a molestar un poco a mi papá y consecuentemente a mi era que ese grupo nunca invitaba a mi hermana a ningún lado. Cabe aclarar que eran sólo los hombres del grupo los que hacían esto. Por ejemplo si iban a un concierto de algún grupo que a mi hermana también le gustara no la invitaban. Si hacían ellos una fiesta en su casa tampoco la invitaban. Si iban de viaje tampoco lo hacían (a pesar de que mi hermana ya los había invitado a uno ella y todos asistieron sin pagar nada). La excusa que normalmente ponían para no invitarla era que porque era mujer. Esto comenzó a fastidiar a las otras chicas pertenecientes al grupo (ya que a ellas también se los hacían) y estas empezaron a alejarse hasta el punto de ya no pertenecer más al grupo. Sin embargo, mi hermana decidió no alejarse como las demás por que estaba muy aferrada a ellos. Para ella ellos eran la familia que realmente quería (o eso decía mi hermana), cosa la cual a mi familia y a mi nos ponía muy tristes sobretodo después de como ver cómo realmente la trataban. Cada vez que mi hermana se sentía mal de como no la tomaban en cuenta por ser mujer mi familia y yo le hacíamos ver que realmente no la tomaban en cuenta por ser ella (es decir es irrelevante que sea por ser mujer simplemente era una excusa barata para no decir que no se querían juntar con ella por ser ella, si realmente la querían se juntarían con ella sin importarles el que sea mujer). Mi hermana siempre nos reprochó este punto y decía que la dejáramos de tratar como a una tonta, que ellos realmente la querían y que si no fuera mujer ellos la querrían más y la invitarían más. Esto comenzó a preocuparme todavía más por que ella se estaba odiando a sí misma por culpa de unos malagradecidos. Luego de un tiempo resultó que mi familia y yo teníamos razón y que sus “amigos” tenían un grupo secreto donde hablaban pestes de ella. Cuando ella se entero se puso súper mal y los mando a todos a volar. Se dio cuenta que nosotros solo tratábamos de protegerla y creí que había aprendido algo de todo eso. Ella logró hacer nuevos amigos, que a decir verdad son muy amables y divertidos con ella. Parte de sus viejos amigos siguen teniendo contacto con ella y es uno de estos el que me preocupa. Hace tiempo recibí una llamada alarmante de un número desconocido. En la llamada está persona me alertaba sobre cómo este chico planeaba algo s3xu4l de manera pues no consentida con mi hermana. Yo me alerté y fui a avisar a mi hermana la cual no creyó lo que está persona me dijo y mi hermana hasta el día de hoy sostiene que son acusaciones falsas. Igual yo nunca me lo pude quitar de la cabeza. Ella y este chico ya habían tendido problemas por temas parecidos anteriormente y por esto mismo me sorprende que mi hermana no lo crea. Cada vez que va a verlo le pido que tenga cuidado pero lo único que esto me ha generado son problemas con ella ya que dice que porque la trato como una tonta que ella sabe defenderse y que yo no necesito estarme metiendo en su vida. Le explico que solo trato de protegerla y me repite lo mismo, que ella sabe lo que hace y que deje de meterme con ella y sus amigos. Realmente me preocupa porque todo el tema de los amigos se está volviendo a repetir. Espero de corazón que si este histérica como dice mi hermana y que en realidad no pase nada. Pero si ya tuvimos razón una vez me preocupa volverla tener. Si alguien tiene algún consejo o comentario me alegraría leerlo. Se que no debo meterme en la vida de mi hermana pero es que a veces se pasa de confiada y tengo miedo que eso le cobre factura.

2023.05.29 07:31 Proletlariet Shredder 03
"Prepare, all of you, for a slow, agonizing end to your small and worthless lives"
In the 4th century, an evil tengu known as the Shredder
terrorized Japan. In order to combat the demon, the Emperor summoned Japan's five greatest warriors, chief among them Oroku Saki.
Moments before killing the tengu, the demon offered Saki incredible power in exchange for his soul. Accepting, Saki took the name of The Shredder
and conquered Japan. His four former comrades banded together to form the Ninja Tribunal and fought Saki to a standstill, managing to seal him away. Centuries later, the Heralds of the Shredder revived Saki,
who came into conflict with the newest acolytes of the Ninja Tribunal, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
Feats will be marked with the season and episode number (i.e. S3E5). Feats that occur before Saki merges with the Shredder Tengu will be marked with [H]
. Feats from the "Shredder War", a near future where the Utrom, Tengu, and Cyber Shredders battle for Shredder supremacy seen by the Turtles during their time traveling, will be marked with [W]

2023.05.29 07:31 Sea_Pumpkin303 AITA for not wanting to send letters and make calls for my grand aunt
aita #familydrama For the past few weeks, I (21F) have had to help send letters and make calls, on behalf of my grandaunt (63F). My grandaunt has been having issues with her neighbours living above her apartment as they constantly throw rubbish onto her front porch. She has tried to reach out to multiple authorities and no-one has taken the issue seriously enough to solve. This has been going on for one and a half years now. My mother (47F) is her landlord, however she is extremely busy as a single mother with 3 jobs. Thus, my mother has asked me to sort out this issue for my grandaunt. I have had to visit my grandaunt multiple times throughout the weeks to collect details, compile photos, make phone calls and send letters to authorities. Still nothing has been done. Today, she has been sent a form to fill out and send to another authority. Without even looking at the form, my grandaunt is now asking me to come to her place and fill it in person. It takes me 40 minutes just to drive to her place and I am tired of having to do this frequently just to handle matters that I believe should not be my responsibility. I’ve asked her to send a photo of the form and I can instruct her on how to fill it over the phone. She did not like this at all and just wants me to come to her place and get it done myself. The form itself is not difficult to fill as most of it asks for basic personal details like address, phone number etc. My grandaunt is well able to write these things. It appears to me that she has become used to getting the help and does not want to attempt anything herself because of the expectation that I will do it. Because all of this takes up my own free time, and I am just expected to get them done or else I am called selfish, I have decided not to help her further. So AITA?
