2023.05.31 04:31 Lmaoookek Just a Post to describe how im feeling about Final Fantasy.

I know that you're hiding things, using gentle words to shelter me... Your words were like a dream... But dreams could never fool me.... Not that easily... I acted so distance then, didn't say goodbye before you left... But i was listening... you'll fight your battles far from me... Far too easily...
"save your tears cause ill come back" I could hear that you whispered as you walked through that door... But still i swore to hide the pain when i turn back the pages...
Shouting might have been the answer... What if i cried my eyes out and begged you not to depart?
But now im not afraid to say whats in my heart...
1000 words, call out through the ages, they'll fly to you even though i can't see... I know they're reaching you... suspended on silver wings
Oh 1000 words... 1000 embraces.... will cradle you making all of your weary days seem far away...
They'll hold you forever...
I think this song perfectly describes my feelings toward the Final Fantasy series. Its a series i grew up with, a series ive loved and cherished since i was a kid. It was my escape from the real world and it comforted me when i was in pain. I did not have the greatest child hood, and Final Fantasy was my home. It didn't matter the installment... Every installment to me delivered an unforgettable story, with characters i fell in love with. The journey to save the world, the challenge to real world concepts in every game, the love stories... The fantasy. The experiences i have had with this franchise are akin to a first love that i will never forget.
But like a first love, it rarely works out. Like a fleeting love in the summer, the summer must come to an end. And that is where i am in this relationship. Its time to let it go. While it may seem strange for me to talk about a game in this manner, i feel it perfectly describes my connection with it. And ironically, the song that describes it best is from Square themselves.
I have watched her grow and blossom into a beautiful woman. I have befen with her through every adventure. I have enjoyed every minute, no, every second ive had with her. But somewhere in the journey, she changed. And its so difficult to understand the change because even though i love her with all my heart, i cannot accept her changes. She seems like a completely different person; even someone i have never known. How can this be? How could she have changed so much after 2 1/2 decades that i don't know her anymore?
Whats worse is she sees she has changed. But she holds my hand and whispers she still loves me. And that she still wants to be with me. I tremble as she delivers a pale, but heartfelt smile. I decide to have faith in her, to believe that its true; but her actions tell me something different. What can i do? I am lost... Do i stay with her? Do i continue to be her guardian? Or do i disappear? Do i whistle and hope she comes running? Or do i fade away? I don't know anymore. But i know i do want her to be happy. And whoever it is that she finds who loves her changes, i do want them to experience the amazing journey i had with her. She should be cherished, she deserves the utmost care...
So i have come to the sad conclusion, the end of my story. I must find a way to let her go. We no longer have that connection that tied us together. We have become two very different people. We want different things now, and thats okay. I will always love her but i can't be with her anymore.
So now i will say goodbye, my love... my dearest. Thank you for the last 25 years.
Send me, Yuna... Its time.

2023.05.31 04:29 PCimated 25 [M4F] GA/TN, USA/Anywhere Let's build computers, cars, and a life together!

The most important piece of my life is still missing: you. You're out there somewhere, and I'm ready to get lost in your eyes, to hold you when life is hard or even when everything's good. I want to melt with you in an outpouring of passion and intimacy. Cheesy as it may sound, I miss you, even though we've never met.
I'm searching long and hard (it might be a double entendre 😏) for my soul mate, who shares most of my interests below, and who's also goofy, likes to playfully insult each other, and also believes in open and honest communication. Naturally, if we can trust each other fully and not hold back what we really think, I believe we can work out any problems when they arise. 💛
• I'm a gamer, car guy, and maybe one day, a musician too. I enjoy anime, nature, going on little adventures, traveling... I wanna see the world with my significant other before all the beautiful sights are gone.
• I want to dance with you. In the living room, bedroom, back yard, in the park, almost anywhere. I enjoy doing romantic things and expressing my love. I love deep conversations that distract us from the passing of time.
• I'm a dog person because my allergies chose to target cats for whatever reason, so there's that. 😅
• I don't have children currently, but they're in my plans for the future. Oh, and I'm monogamous, so you're the only one getting my romance, intimacy, passion, and love.
• I'm really hoping to find someone who's also into dirty humor and has mutual...interests 😏 so we have better compatibility in the bedroom (and sometimes in public too). 👉👈
• Specs for those who would like them: - 6 feet tall (about 183 cm). - 240 lbs and dropping (about 109 kg). ~ My figure is very dad-bod, but apparently it comes with a nice ass (so I'm told). ~ This is the most I've ever weighed, and I'm not happy with it. I'm targeting somewhere around 170 lbs (about 77 kg). - Brunette, kept short so I don't have to use any kind of gel/pomade/cream. - Blue eyes. - Caucasian.
• I have learned the hard way that I do have a type. I have dated outside that type before, and it only led to hurt feelings, so I don't want to repeat that. That being said, my type is Caucasian or Asian ranging from petite to average body type. You don't have to love going to the gym, don't worry. 😅 I apologize if my preferences differ from who you are. That does not mean I dislike you. You're probably an amazing person! I have simply learned that I'm more attracted to certain people. You're all beautiful people, regardless! Please love yourself! 💛
Chat with ya soon! 😁 !unlock

2023.05.31 04:27 No_Crow_2265 Do I give my grandparents a second chance? Do I pretend to love them? Or do I cut it off?

Cast: Me (f 23) Brother (m 21) Sister (f 19) Grandma (f 70) Grandpa (m 68)
Situation: My siblings and I were adopted and raised by our paternal grandparents. Me and them have never gotten along. Things got very bad 7 to 4 years ago.
Tensions between me and my grandparents have simmered down since I moved out 5 years ago. Grandparents feel they don’t have a lot of time left and want to rekindle our relationship and “get close again”.
Things have drastically changed since I moved out: grandma and grandpa are claiming to be different people now. I sure am a different person too. They really hurt me in the past and I can’t trust them not to do it again, but my sister who still lives with them claims they have changed for the better.
A HUGE bonus and honestly the biggest reason I am even bothering to consider this situation is that I would rekindle and reconnect to my little sister, who comes as a package deal with my grandparents. I miss her so much.
Option 1: Give them a second chance
Fully commit, open myself up, be the real me, discuss and heal past issues and determine what we want our relationship to look like moving forward. If they really haven’t changed, this could mean opening up myself to a new wave of drama, arguments, manipulation, yelling, and trying to control me. True love is all about being vulnerable with the other person and I don’t know if I am capable of that with them because of how much they hurt me. Plus, I still harbor a lot of pent up anger and emotion regarding how I was treated.
Option 2: Pretend love them and “half” commit
Do, say, and act the part - say I love you at the end of all calls. Be nice but reserved. Keep my heart closed and don’t share the real me. I wouldn’t love them, but I wouldn’t let them know that.
I would give them more of what they want - a relationship. They wouldn’t know just how one sided it would be. I truly believe I can play the part well for many years if needed. Things might get tricky when I have kids, tho?
Option 3: keep it how it is and more or less cut it off
Right now we are more or less on “see you at family events” terms with a phone call thrown in for birthdays and Mother’s Day. I see their “public” face and they keep all of their issues to themselves and I keep all of mine to myself. In the last 3 years there have been next to no arguments, yelling, manipulating, or grabs for control over me. I’ve never been happier and I’ve started to no longer get anxiety attacks when I get a call or text from them. I so badly want to keep it this way. But they hate it and it apparently hurts them a lot.
Other important information: 1) They were so outright emotionally abusive and manipulative to the point I wished they would just hit us instead. Very controlling and strict parents.
2) When things “took a huge downward turn” and our relationship was at its worst, my grandma struggled very hard with having an independent, very emotional teenager (me) and the sudden death of her son/my dad. Since it’s been over 6 years there’s a very good chance she’s fully healed and she has changed since these issues are no longer as relevant.
3) my sister has hinted that my grandparents will never apologize for how they raised us and thus how they treated us (which is where ALL my beef with them is at). “They did their best and they are not sorry for that”. This doesn’t sit well with me and I think plays a big part in my struggle with this issue.
4) all of the things they did to support me they end up holding over my head and using as leverage to try to control me. They helped pay for my college and they make sure I don’t forget it. This happened again in our most recent conversation.
5) we are VERY different people. In the past they have been very vocal about their disproval of my views and actions. In the past, they have been very negative, nagging people with always something to complain about and I HATE being around people like that. A part of having a happy life is to surround yourself with happy people and people you like. Their previous selves would DEFINITELY not fit that bill.
FYI / non-relevant information: 1) Biological parents were druggies and our paternal grandparents stepped in once us kids were CPS-ed out of there. Mom died in 2008, a year after we were legally adopted.
2) I have a husband (m 23), moved an hour away, and am slowly living the life I dreamed of. Things are wonderful except for this issue.
3) I decided to start seeing a therapist because I clearly have a lot to work through. First session isn’t for another month.

2023.05.31 04:27 Imaginary_Access_691 My (29F) GF and I (25M) are taking a break to work on ourselves. What’s the best advice to give to someone that’s going through this?

I (25M) and my GF (29F) have been dating for about 10 months, we met on tinder over a year ago and instantly hit it off. She was a straight up smoke show in my eyes and I couldn’t believe someone as beautiful as her would ever talk to me in a billion years. We quickly realized we had similar interests in sports teams and music and wanted to take things further. We started going out on dates to restaurants, going to sporting events, and pretty soon things started to get serious. Before we met, I had a daughter in a previous relationship. My ex and I got engaged back in December of 2019 and found out we were going to have a daughter in October of 2020. I’ll go into it in another post but my ex is kind of crazy and I’m currently working to afford a lawyer. Backstory aside, before I asked her out my GF was able to meet my daughter and she was ecstatic to be around her! I finally worked up the courage to ask her out in July 2022 and the next few months that followed were full of love and happiness. We went on more dates and I got to know some of her friends pretty well. Even came along with her on her birthday trip to Austin, TX in October! Come around to the beginning of the year, things kind of started to plateau. I noticed she wasn’t having the same energy that she had in the past. But I brushed it off as her work schedule being hectic. She is a nurse and works nights, given that it was also winter we both concluded it was seasonal depression. About a month later she tells me she never has felt this depressed before. I was still coming around once or twice a weekend, having every other weekend being with my daughter. And I was still trying to come up with ideas and places we could go to, but the depression was cutting into her energy no matter what I tried. Fast forward to a week ago. She called me and asked if we could talk. She told me that she wants to take a break for a while, citing her depression worsening and personal issues with her family that I’m aware of but I don’t want to share here. So we talked about it for a couple of hours and decided that we will give the break a try. She pointed out that I do have stuff I need to work on as well if we want to come out of this break and be a stronger and happier couple and bring both of our best sides out in our relationship. What advice could you users of Reddit can offer me so that I can come out of this break with so that I can be a stronger partner for her?

2023.05.31 04:24 rnilkpan Against all odds

Hello 👋🏼
It’s me again! I thought I’d share my story about my most unlikely manifestation. It wasn’t deliberate, but when I think back to it, LoA is the only possible answer to how this happened.
I’m Chinese. Why am I mentioning this? Basically, grades were my world - and it put me into an incredibly negative place. Anyway, it was coming up to the end of my highschool years and I was 17 years old. I had to select a university that I would want to attend.
I went to my first choice university’s open evening, and they stated that in 2012, the minimum grade for acceptance was AAB (to get into the course I wanted). No one got in via clearing.
At the open evening, they had a talk about campus accommodation. They stated that accommodation in the main halls was only guaranteed by those with an unconditional offer. Everyone else would essentially have to fight for a spot. My dad nudged me and said jokingly “why can’t you get an unconditional offer?”
I laughed and silently kicked myself for not receiving one. I had heard that year that 2 people received unconditionals for the course as a result of being exceptional. I got a conditional offer of AAA. I was well on track with my grades, with predicted of AA*AA (I took an extra A-level).
When I got home, I logged onto my socials. Back then, I was active on a site called Tumblr (WAHOOO!) and there was an extremely popular post called “the shooting star”. It was a gif image of a shooting star which told the reader to make a wish and reshare the image. It became popular because so many people claimed it worked for them. I wished for an unconditional offer. Logically, it seemed a bit silly. I’ve never really heard of places changing a conditional to an unconditional, so it seemed rather baseless. But I wished real hard.
Fast forward to the day of exams… I collapsed in school. As in, I was rushed to A&E and was told that I had almost died due to pneumonia (I had severe asthma, and the flare up caused by pneumonia was… intense). I was placed into intensive care unit for 1 week. I had missed all my exams. I asked my friends to bring me my study books, so I would study on my hospital bed while the exams were going on. I was infuriated at myself.
Despite me being angry, I repeated to myself over and over “I’m getting into that university” with such fierce determination. I would find a way, and I would not make myself sit through another year of school.
On the day of results… you can imagine how mortified I was. I didn’t sit my exams, but they gave me placeholder grades. I came out with a BCCC. The next day I lay there in bed and my dad shook me awake and told me to look at my UCAS (the site we use to apply for uni). I refused and said “there’s no point. I’m not going to uni this year.”
My dad sounded disappointed but said “check anyway.”
So I did. I wiped my tears and plopped off to the toilet and prepared to cry. Until I open up the site and:
“You have been offered an unconditional offer.”
And that’s it. I didn’t redo my school year. I got to live in the main halls. My dad that day apparently went to work screaming of happiness. My mother still tells this story to her friends, claiming I’m magical.
Did me getting an unconditional offer come about in the way I expected it to? Absolutely not. But alas, the universe delivers in unique (sometimes slightly painful!) ways.

2023.05.31 04:24 paimonnow I was missing out on this game

I just need to lay out my love for this game. I’m a newbie. Only 11% in. And I regret not having tried out this game sooner when the hype was at its peak.
I dislike FPS and shooters in general cause I play on consoles and I find it hard to aim and it stresses me out.
But… this game is so much fun! The fact that they don’t outline the enemies makes it so much more thrilling and realistic. There’s definitely a steep learning curve for me since I’m not used to using guns in games (hell, I avoided The Last of Us like the plague cause of it… lol), but this game blows my mind.
It’s currently on sale (playstation store) and I jumped right into it out of boredom. For reference, my favorite game of all time is The Witcher III, so I’m all for HUGE worlds to explore.
Not going to lie, didn’t think much of it in the first 30 minutes… but when it finally takes off… wow! I love how realistic everything is. How the world is alive! How NPCs can get upset and chase you down. How the horses look beautiful. The scenery. This game is from 2018!
What finally sealed the deal for me was Arthur and Lenny going to Valentine for a drink… you all know what comes next. I was laughing so hard at how both of them got wasted and started dancing and having a good time. Arthur’s vision blurring…. even the dialogue options having typos! “Lemmy? Gret”… amazing attention to detail.
Sorry for all the rambling and I’m sure you’ve probably read all of this before. This game is not short on praise, but I’m so happy I gave it a try and felt the need to share it with all of you!

2023.05.31 04:23 KittenDealinMama AITA for uninviting my daughter to our Christmas gathering?

AITA for uninviting my daughter to our Christmas gathering?
Bear with me, I am on mobile.
I am a mother of 4 children. Two older sons and two younger daughters. All of them are adults and have moved out a long time ago.
I have always been close with my daughter Sally, while Penny has always liked to have her own space. Which I don't mind, theyre both beautiful talented young women that I thought I couldn't be more proud of.
We're having early Christmas this year. First week of December I was inviting everyone around for Christmas Dinner, gift giving and the lot.
When I Phoned Penny yesterday to clarify a few things she mentioned that she and her husband would not be coming.
When I asked she said that they had seperated for now as he had cheated. I said that it was surely better to spend time with family if this was the case and maybe she should come home for some time.
She ummed and ahhd but then eventually she told me he had an affair with Sally and they had been seeing each other for the past 2 years.
I felt sick. For the past 6 months in our talks, Sally has alluded that she had been seeing someone and was typically girl-in-love.
I uninvited Sally to the Christmas gathering and blocked her. I don't know if I'm able to deal with her before Christmas but this is family time and family can't hurt each other like that. I'm at a loss in all honesty. Penny is now coming which is good because at this time she needs stability of people who love her imo.
The problem is that Sally naturally thinks I'm in the wrong. It's none of my business and as her mother I can't block her and remove her from the family.
My sister thinks I shouldn't get involved in their personal lives which I think is bs. My daughter needs us right now. But then she tells me "I have two daughters to think about". Which I think isn't true. Sally has forfeited that right atm.
Thankfully my husband is liaising with Sally atm but he is also in solidarity with me.
So are we in the wrong for uninviting a daughter for Christmas??
Edit: my husband showed me that this had gotten a lot responses. Too many for us to answer them all but we will be reading through before bed.
A small update: Penny's MIL found out. While me and her have only spoken a few times, she did dote on Penny and I know Penny got along well with her. I haven't spoken to her personally, but I know she phoned my daughter and was really supportive and crying.
My sister said that if Sally isn't invited then she isn't going either. Which is fine by me - she wasn't invited in the first place due to the pandemic. Otherwise I've been working and doing some crochet so it's been quiet :)
Judgment: Not The Asshole
1st Update
Dec 6, '20 - About 1 month later
Hello all! My Christmas gathering was yesterday and my son & husband wondered if I would post an update for you all.
It's been rather uneventful, but I've been equally surrounded by warmth and love while also feeling heartbroken and lonely.
So first of all, since my post, my husband has been teaching me to use reddit! I've really enjoyed being in some craft communities 😊
My daughter Penny has been staying with us. She works from home. My husband and eldest went to get some more of her stuff from her old house. Pennys mother-in-law (Jane) was there and was very helpful and sweet. She also bought some mint hot chocolate for our penny and Christmas candles. I know they're her favourite.
From what penny has told me, Jane is having similar feelings to me. A lot of guilt over our children's decision to hurt people we love. I think at this point we have to accept that we did our best raising them, but they're adults now so we can't beat ourselves up.
Penny and Jane are going to stay in touch. I think Jane truly does think of penny as a daughtefriend 😊😊
Onto some more negative things. I wrote my letter to Sally during this time. I expressed that I was extremely disappointed and also disgusted. While I will continue to have a relationship with her, she won't be welcome to any family gatherings with penny present unless penny has met a point in her life where she feels comfortable. I told her what some of you had said, that not taking a side would be a side and that she had for all intents and purposes, already uninvited herself when she was so cruel to her sister.
Sally had apparently come up on Friday and knocked on the door. I was out shopping at the time. My husband spoke to her. Apparently, Sally and Michael (my son-in-law) are going to continue their relationship. I will not support it in any way or form. She may be my daughter but that man is not welcome. I am supporting penny through the divorce, and if Sally ever expects money for the wedding or a house then she's a very naïve girl. My husband sent her away, after which Sally said we'd have to get over it someday.
Otherwise, the Christmas gathering was lovely. It was strange not getting drunk and playing boardgames due to covid, but still a pleasant time. My hip hurts from the cooking 😭 but husband and penny did the cleaning up so who's the real winner?
I hope you all have a wonderful day. Thank you very much for your kind words when I last spoke to you ♥
EDIT: I know some are concerned about Covid, but please know that we live in a country with very few cases and we met within government guidelines.
2nd Update
Oct 30, '22 - Almost 2 years later
Hello all!
I hope this message finds you well. A lot has changed since I last spoke with you all, so I would like to update you because I am finding things a bit difficult right now.
First of all, Penny is doing well! She met someone new about a year ago; they're incredibly supportive and sweet, and they made such an effort in getting to know me and my husband. Penny was still living with me when she started seeing them, so I got to watch their relationship develop - and although Penny is a grown woman I couldn't help but be reminded of when she was a child and having crushes. It was very endearing and I'm glad I got to witness firsthand the smile her new partner gives her. Penny also got a new job and has moved to Ireland with her partner.
Sally and Michael have continued their relationship. I don't have a lot of love to give Michael. I am civil enough but frankly, it is difficult for me to become invested in their relationship at all. Michael recently asked my permission to marry Sally, which was disrespectful, to say the least. Penny still lived with me last Christmas, so again they were not invited. I am not hosting this Christmas and am instead going to go visit my eldest son, he and his wife had a little boy at the beginning of this year. They've asked me to stay with them for a little while so I can help with the cooking and cleaning, as they have been struggling a little bit.
Finally, my husband passed away 9 months ago. He fell while on a walk and hit his head, and was there for some hours before someone found him. It's been a difficult transition, to put it mildly. Being a little bit on the older side, I've lost a fair few people in my life and while I did grieve, I always had the strength to continue. Losing my husband made me realise how much I relied on him. Not just to take the bins out, or pick me up from choir practice, but all the times I was angry, sad, and overwhelmed and he was there for me.
When other people passed away at least you get moments of respite in the grief, where you just sort of "forget" they've passed. With my husband, there are only reminders. Every time I wake up alone, when I now have to take the bins out, when I have to cook a meal just for one person. There's not really a moment of peace in this grief and I have found it very difficult to deal with. It's his birthday at the end of November, and there was another moment of grief as I had to get rid of my notes for birthday gift ideas in my notebook. Everything has just been so painful to deal with and I just cannot stop crying even after all this time. I just can't even stand to think of the good moments I shared with him because it just hurts too much. I know there's not a correct way to grieve or time-limit, but I just feel like I've got to get up and start looking after myself for everyone around me.
I really want to thank any of you that read this. It's been incredibly helpful just to be able to share my feelings a little bit. I hope you all have been doing well.
Kind regards.

2023.05.31 04:19 Quantumaleviolen Amor Fati

My happiness and contentment for life in general has increased with age. I am a person that has chased the mysteries of the universe in an obsessive fashion due to my curiosity outweighing even my self-preservation. (I'm the first one to die in a horror movie situation. When we hear the strange monster make a noise outside, I'm the one that says, wait here, I'll check it out!)
I believe one aspect has been similar to achieving what Nietzsche called Amor Fati, or love of fate.
The idea he had was that a type of inner peace could be achieved by removing regret or wishful reflection upon instances in the past or to love all events, bad or good, as it truly happened.
As I have a bit stronger empathy for humanity as a whole than many people, I used to contemplate the fate of humanity and stress about what my role was in it. Over the last decade, I've really started to love the story of humanity in a way that I believe I love the fate of us as it truly is.
Yes, humanity has some sucky parts and we may be headed towards a cliff, but the existence of humanity in itself and its uniqueness on the planet (maybe the universe) is beautiful to me. I see beauty in the universe and whatever we were or will become, I believe I will see the beauty in it.

2023.05.31 04:18 diamondsandglass [Ballet] The only ballerina you've ever heard isn't actually that great at ballet

Briefly, I’d like to say I really enjoy reading the content here, but this is my first time trying my own hand at writing a post. If anyone has recommendations for improvement I’d be happy to hear them. There is so, so, so much drama in the ballet world, so hopefully this will be the first in a series of sorts. I’ll try to keep it relatively light for my first post, but this write-up will include some mentions of racism. Also, apologies for any formatting issues, I am on mobile.
With that being said, let’s get on to the drama.
What is ballet? I’ll try to keep this part brief. Just in case you haven’t heard of it, ballet is a heavily codified and strict form of dance rising out of France in the 17th century. It traveled all around Europe, and eventually the world, changing and taking shape along the way. In the late 18th century some absolute sadist decided that this art would look even better if the dancers had to do everything balanced on the top of their toes, and thus the pointe shoe was born, defining the style to this day.
What is Swan Lake? In the 19th century Russia was the place to be for ballet. Tchaikovsky was writing his greatest music for the royal theater, and working with him was the genius choreographer Marius Pepita. In 1870, this collaboration would lead to a little work called Swan Lake. Swan Lake is one of the most famous ballets of all time, eclipsed only by The Nutcracker. It is a big display of feathers and drama and death and I love it very much.
The plot revolves around a woman who has been cursed to turn into a swan, and the prince who falls in love with her. Unfortunately, the prince is tricked by an evil swan woman who dances so seductively that he promises to marry her instead. This confusion leads to the good swan being so heartbroken she simply cannot live on, and the ballet ends with her tragic death. I know this plot sounds batshit insane, but the dances are so beautiful it kind of helps you forget that. Traditionally both of the lead swan roles are played by the same dancer, which is a massive challenge not just because she will be on stage for ~2 hours, but also because the evil swan (referred to as the black swan or Odiele) has a famously difficult section where she has to do 32 of the same turn. In a row. Put a pin in that for a moment.
Who is Misty Copeland? Misty Copeland is possibly the most famous ballet dancer in the world right now. If you forced someone on the street to name a ballet dancer, it would either be her or Natalie Portman in that one movie. Misty became famous as the first black ballerina promoted to a principal dancer at American Ballet Theater, the de facto national dance company of the U.S. This was a huge step forward for the ballet world, especially notable for the fact that it took waaaaaayyyy too long to happen. Misty was promoted to principal in 2015, the first black dancer to achieve this in the company’s 75 year history.
Misty is not the first black ballerina in history, but she did break a major boundary for future dancers. It’s no secret that the ballet world is stiff, slow-to-change, and overwhelmingly white. Her success was in spite of the conservative powers that be, and made her a huge inspiration to many people. Misty capitalized on this, doing magazine interviews, social media campaigns, and writing several books. She is certainly a groundbreaking ballet dancer.
But is she a good dancer? …that’s a very controversial question. She’s obviously better than the average person, but most dancers would argue she doesn’t stand out from other professionals. Her technique and virtuosity are not what is remarkable about her, and her dancing itself isn’t what made her famous. The problem with talking about this is that conservative ballet people also use this as an excuse to tear down a successful black dancer. It is difficult to distinguish someone that has good faith concerns about her qualifications from someone that is pretending to have concerns in order to voice their racist opinions on her. This had been simmering under the surface for her whole career, but really came to the head in 2018, when Copeland was called to perform the lead role in Swan Lake on a huge international tour stop in Singapore.
Black Swan Remember that pin from earlier? We’re bringing it back. Copeland had performed Swan Lake many times before, including in the lead role, and reviews were mixed. The consensus matches up pretty well with general comments about her dancing, that she’s an average-good performer, but her jumps and turns are underdeveloped and her technique is rough around the edges. Her performance in Singapore overall reflects this, with one glaring issue. The 32 turns.
This is probably the most famous danced section of the ballet, and definitely the most famous piece for the black swan. As mentioned above, Misty is not a very strong turner. She often substitutes in simpler moving steps instead of turning in the same space, as Swan Lake demands. The Singapore performance is particularly rough, and unfortunately someone in the audience that night was filming. Apologies in advance for the poor video quality, but obviously this was a bootleg.
For reference, here’s a whole bunch of other dancers doing the same section- And now here’s Misty-
Misty is obviously off-center from the start, having to hop and slowly drifting across the stage for the turns she does complete. Rather than resetting and finishing out the sets she completely gives up at 17 seconds in and substitutes in a different step.This was not a one-time change. There is additional footage from other performances that show the same thing, replacing at least half the turns with other, simpler moves. It’s clear she can’t do 16 turns in a row, much less the full 32. It had been known to the ballet world for a while that Misty wasn’t an amazing turner, but having video proof made the whole thing start spiraling beyond that.
Responses The backlash started out on small ballet forums, and then spread to blogs and other news outlets. Various reputable sources and also the Daily Mail wrote articles about how embarrassing the video looked for Copeland. The media narrative was quick to get negative, and Copeland is nothing if not media savvy. She had to make a response. And that she did.
Misty chose to respond to a particular negative comment on Instgram- Her response is fairly long and eloquent. She points out that she has never claimed to be the best dancer, and that she is grateful to even have the opportunity to perform this role. She also highlights the importance of artistry and storytelling to ballet as a whole. This response kicked off a second wave of media responses, mostly gushing clickbait articles supporting Misty unquestioningly. Most people called the performance an “off day”, saying it wasn’t representative of her dancing as a whole.
Conclusion For the ballet world, this was a huge story. However, the ballet world is not that big or important to most people. The whole thing was easily swept past, an article or two were posted online and everyone acted outraged for a few days. It hasn’t had a meaningful impact on Copeland’s career, she’s still dancing with ABT and as mentioned is massively popular. She has recently taken a break from performing, but is still very much a part of the company and will probably get more opportunities to perform Swan Lake in future. Anyone that doesn’t like her will just have to die mad about it.
Additional reading In case you’re interested, I got a lot of my additional info here- The writer is not a professional dancer, but does work closely with the ballet world and wrote one of the more comprehensive and unbiased accounts I could find. Most news outlets that covered the story are either exclusively covering Copeland’s response or just designed to tear her down. I’m not interested in trashing her reputation or calling her a terrible dancer, and I don’t want to link to anyone that’s doing that either.
I do think there are other black dancers that deserve to have as much praise and adulation as Copeland, and it’s frustrating that she alone gets so much media attention. However she has done a lot of good with her platform, and her outreach to young dancers especially is really admirable. If you have a little dancer in your life, consider reading them one of her picture books. Or hey, go to a local dance performance! There are thousands of talented dancers in smaller regional companies that don’t ever get the kind of attention American Ballet Theater generates. Having public support is what keeps dance going, whether you’re an intentionally famous principal or a local beginner.

2023.05.31 04:13 clarahenleys My 37M husband says he loves and cares for me but I 27F don’t believe him.

Please give me advice 27F making a decision about my relationship with 37M I grew up in a very conservative and strict home and got married through an arrangement at age 23. I had only known my husband for 5 months before the wedding and got pregnant and had a baby 9 months after.
It’s been nearly 4 years of marriage but I’m unhappy I used to blame my in-laws for our differences because they have a big negative influence on him and after a couple months of marriage they grew to dislike me because I didn’t want to be the obedient daughter in law and live with them anymore. We have lived alone for about 2 years however things haven’t been that much better. Our issues consist of him wanting to spend more time with his family than with our daughter and I.
My husband also doesn’t give me much of his time, attention or make any effort to plan things unless i suggest them. I feel as if I’m just the classic housewife but nothing more I’ve communicated my wants and needs multiple times and he tells me he will try to change and I’ve seen changes but it never lasts. He changes for a period of time then goes back to how he was, we constantly argue and we are generally not happy with each other even on special occasions such as birthdays.
I’m currently at my family’s home and I’ve said I’m tired of being disappointed every time by him and want a divorce. However to be completely honest I’m scared, I know that I’m not happy with him but I don’t know what to do, I don’t want to regret it.
No one is perfect and I wouldn’t know what deal breakers are as I’ve only been in a relationship with him. I was considering of living together for my daughters sake ( because even if she sees him in the day when I put her to sleep at night and it’s just her and I, she cries for him and it breaks my heart).
Im so confused because his a good person provides for our family and a good dad however not a good husband because I feel he doesn’t love me or care for me even though he says that’s not true. I have another concern he doesn’t know how to express him self or communicate his feelings when I question him about it he’s not sure why.
I thought about the possibility of him actually have difficulties with understanding emotions (I don’t know if this is important but he has a family member that has low level of autism) because when we argue he says it’s not an argument and in general he doesn’t communicate much and doesn’t know how to start a conversation it will take maybe 20 minutes or I have to start it. He’s socially awkward and doesn’t know how to deal with certain situations and even says hurtful things then says I didn’t mean them or I don’t know why I said that after I explain why I’m hurt.
I’ve suggested marriage counselling before however he wasn’t too keen on going. He told me that he will change and won’t make me feel neglected and hurt again but he’s told me that so many times before that I just don’t believe him.
TL;DR;: Is feeling neglected and unloved in a marriage enough to divorce? because other than this problem my life with him is good and my daughter living a happy life in a two parent home. Is it enough that he is just a good parent but not a good husband? How do children cope with divorce? What do people do in these situations? Any advice would be appreciated Thank you.

2023.05.31 04:10 Jealous-Tea7792 I ran into my ex

Its been several months. We did the awkward small talk and they asked about the dog we got together that lives with me now. Then basically avoided eye contact with each until we eventually walked away, which is fine, just weird. I miss talking to them everyday but I know even if we did get on casual speaking terms we wouldn’t be talking to the same people we once were. I will always love them but I don’t want to get back together with them anymore I just want my best friend back. I miss you, stranger.
You looked beautiful tonight. Even after everything you put me through your smile is still my happy place.

2023.05.31 04:05 SnooCapers1425 Uncle Needs Advice: Beauty product ideas for 16 year niece's birthday

My amazing niece is turning 16 in June. She is pure sunshine and one of my favorite people on the planet. I've asked her what she'd like for her birthday and one of the items is beauty products. I'm a 47 year old bald guy with a big beard with absolutely no experience with these types of products. The last time I needed a comb was in the 90's.
I'd like to get her some type of a gift basket, whether a premade one or something I'd have to create. I overheard her speaking with a friend of hers that she likes sugar scrubs and facials/masks. I'd like to stay under $350 USD for all of it.
I could really use your assistance.
I tried searching posts here but I was overwhelmed by the amount of information and I really didn't know where to start. My apologies if this post is not appropriate for this sub.
Her Description: She's 5'9", very physically active, sandy brown hair with a fair complexion, and bright blue eyes.
