2023.06.09 22:24 zackwiggyram Shampoo and Conditioner advice??

My hair has just been a nuisance since summer started, I’m very sure I have dry hair and what I did in the winter was oil my hair two hours before then shampoo then condition then hair mask then towel it a bit then oil it then air dry. That would usually be fine but I still faced like small dots of dandruff (I think) to be fair I wasn’t being consistent, but now I’ve been doing that and it hasn’t been working I mean my ends feel amazing and I think my scalp does too but I’ve felt itching sensations and the dandruff is a bit larger but less frequent than it was in winter. In the winter I’d shampoo once a week and now I shampoo twice a week? I mostly condition every two or so days. I use the nature spell hair growth shampoo, conditioner, hair mask and oil. I also use their rosemary oil occasionally. I just want my hair to like be nice considering the amount I’ve invested. My hair is fairly thin and also straight.

2023.06.09 22:24 Icy-Childhood-3 Feeling low. Feeling like a bad parent. Trying to stay focused on positive but it's really hard right now

I am a single parent. It's so hard. Usually I do ok I was a nurse and I have learn to have patience. This is the time that being alone and not as financially stable as I once was harder. It is his graduation soon and I have no $$ for a gift. Of course he loves me, and yes he knows I love him. He is mature enough to understand my struggles, OUR struggles. I wanna give him a damn gift, like a cool gift not just a mother gift of love but something cool. I prayed and I know the Lord wouldn't want me focused on these material things yet the world is material! Special occasion isn't selfish to want my son to look and feel good about himself. He is bullied all the time not involved in things not invited here or there. Yes I've been to the school had police involved when he was assaulted had boxing lessons they were cheapest sport to join. I want my son to have a bad ass suit have a cool gift from me and have me there to cheer him on soooo loudly when they call his sweet name. But I did not have the funds. I knew all damn year, each time I'd try to put a bit away it became impossible to do. We needed things. Something always came up :( now it's here I don't have the things I should. No dress shoes? No money for him to get a hair cut look fresh for himself? I prayed so hard my hands hurt Lord. I tried not praying for material things but I did ask you Lord for my son not for me. I know how much my son loves me but this hurts him I can see it on his face. I'm still hopeful I'll find a way. Just really hard. I made a book I've been writing in it since he was 3 so 11 years, it's his life from 3 to 14. It is full of pics stories and so on. I know he will love it. I want to give him gift cards and stuff other kids get. Am I bad because of that? He deserves a amazing graduation, these kids put him through hell. He's so glad to leave them behind I just wish I could give him what he deserves.

2023.06.09 22:22 MissRuby2425 Should I cowash everyday?

Hi everyone i have 3a-3b curls with medium to high porosity. Still kinda figuring out my hair. I work in a job where i am doing a lot of heavy duty work and I have to wear my hair in a slick back bun every single day for work and I end up using a lot of gel and hairspray to get the desired appearance for the workplace, fly always and frizz is frowned upon and I will actually get written up for it. I also go to the gym everyday and lately I feel like my scalp will get itchy or just feel gross due to all the gel and sweat building up. Lately I’ve just been rinsing my hair with just water everyday and not really putting anything in it in the shower after the gym and work. I usually wash my hair once a week with shampoo but I feel at times my hair doesn’t get all the way clean after a wash day. This could be just from the products I’m using but I’m open to product suggestions as well
My question is if I should cowash it everyday instead of letting all that product build up over the week. But then also shampoo like I regularly do once a week. And if I did use a cowash, what are some good recommendations for my hair type?
Currently I am using Aveeno apple cider vinegar shampoo and the aveeno almond oil conditioner. I know y’all might hate me but i will put the extreme got2b glued gel(black tube) on my hair once it’s been brushed down into a bun. So I don’t just comb it through my hair it kinda sits on top, and I’ll use the got2b glued hair spray(yellow can) all over my actual bun to make sure I get no fly aways.

2023.06.09 22:22 bfvplanetryhard Cant get sales and use tax license PA

I try to register my business on the mypath website but it can’t identify my business. I put in a support ticket, wait a month, and they get back to me. I have to log in to my account on the PA department of revenue website to view my support ticket response, but it says my account is disabled. There are no help articles on the website for a disabled account, or any instructions on how to re-enable it. So now I can’t request a support ticket for my disabled account, because viewing it requires logging in! I tried to call the phone numbers they have, but they all tell me to use the support ticket service online and then auto-hang up. I don’t know what to do here, I want to pull my hair out. I need to apply for my sales and use tax license. Please suggest any advice!

2023.06.09 22:21 hvingsomefun 48 [M4F] #Minnesota, #Online, geeky introvert seeking friends first, now with 200% more pictures!

Hi! First, the basics: I am 6'1, 220 lbs. Dad-bod. Working on it. Workout 5-6 days per week. Bald (shaved) but dark hair and blue eyes. Attractive.
Hey look it's me!
Shlubby me!
Separated but not divorced yet. Live alone.Things I enjoy: Movie buff. Love all kinds. Let's watch our favorite movies together and have fun conversations about what we loved and hated about them after.
Love musicals, be they stage or screen. Love going out to see live shows.
I do game quite a bit (PC). Having someone to game with would be great.
I read, mostly fantasy, sci-fi and post-apoc. I write some (fiction).
Enjoy going for walks (outside, don't like treadmills). Love weekend driving trips. Have started getting into cooking.
I skew pretty introverted. But once you get me past that initial nervousness I tend to be almost over communicative. I do love me a fun conversation. Being compassionate and empathetic are important to me. I do my best to be both of those things. Sometimes I'm better at it than others, but I always try.
Love to hear about your day. Love to hear what you're passionate about and what interests you. So please have interests that you are passionate about. Better yet if you can articulate the what and why of said passion :)
What am I looking for? An emotional connection with someone. Friendship first, and then maybe more. Or maybe not. Friends are great too. And I am definitely not in any sort of hurry. The opposite in fact.
I'm attracted to confidence, but also compassion (too many people seem to think that in order to convey confidence, they have to be a jerk. That doesn't convey confidence, to me it makes you appear insecure to be honest). Strong women are insanely sexy. I am looking for an equal in all things if it ever reaches that next level. Maybe more than an equal?
Physical attraction is a thing, but I don't necessarily have a "type". I will find your wit and intellect far more attractive than anything else.
Wow. That was a lot wasn't it? If any of the above clicked with you even a reach out and let's see what happens. Happy to move to Discord or Telegram.

2023.06.09 22:19 grizzlyginger17 Post lamictal worsening mental cycles, potential link to estrogen issues/decreas while on

I was on lamictal pretty low dose for a few years and eventually started increasing the dose with a new Psych this year. Not sure if I ended up with the start or a rash or if it had been stress hives but out of safety we stopped my use. I have been off of it for about a month and a half and my periods seem to have come back with a vengeance and other hormonal like feelings
I was unaware until recently that it could potentially decrease estrogen levels which can lead to a number of other side effects. I also was not aware of the potential for thinning hair which has most definitely has happened with me.
I am just curious of others experience with this and what happened when you got off of it? Should there be more concern for the way it can affect estrogen in women or what that could mean for birth control interactions? Are there and long term or short term side effects women should consider at certain ages?
I would love if anyone has further insight or studies

2023.06.09 22:18 emmdani FED UP.

a lot swearing coming up bc I’m fucking tired of this shit
I’m fucking tired of my boyfriends dog. It’s to the point where I can’t even TRY to like him anymore. He always finds a fucking way to chew up all my favorite things bro I can’t. I’m literally crying rn. I have these kitty ears from an old costume (tmi but my bf likes for me to wear them for him) and I just came home to find them all fucking chewed up in his bed. He’s chewed up some of my favorite shirts, he chewed up a hair clip that was my favorite bc my hair is really thick and it was one of the only ones I’d found that could hold it up. He fucking broke one of my only FAVORITE mugs with his stupid uncontrollable tail wagging. Chewed up my laptop charger, some of my favorite pens, some of my favorite underwear. The list could literally just go on and on and I’m so fucking fed up. I just needed to vent idk what to do. He chews up my bfs clothes and socks and he seems to not have a problem with it all like how??? He chews up his socks and then ends up constipated for a week and then the next he ends up with runny shit. This past week I had to clean up liquid shit when I came home from work. And when I tell my bf “I bet it’s bc of all ur clothes he eats” and my bf is like “yeah duh” like okay then fucking do something ab it??? You don’t wanna be worrying ab his poop habits or clean up shit after work then fucking do SOMETHING. All he ever does is go “No sir 😡” and there the dog is just looking at him with his stupid puppy dog eyed face and tail wagging and doesn’t understand a single word he just thinks my bf is telling him some sweet shit. It annoys the crap out of me. Every single time I start to grow a soft spot for this dog he fucking finds a way to make it all go back down to 0 and I just add another thing to my list of resentment towards him. I love my boyfriend so much and HE is the only reason why I try with this goddamn dog. He wonders why I have some animosity towards A DOG. Like let me show you a list of reasons, yeah? Rant over. I have a headache now. Best believe boyfriend and I are gonna have a talk when he gets home from work. Thanks for reading of you made it this far. 🥲🔫

2023.06.09 22:18 oknature2 What are your thoughts on morality of having a romantic (non sexual) fling with a teen?

Need some advice. I am a 27F and currently on vacation in Hawaii for 4 weeks. I met a guy who I clicked with right away. He came to Hawaii to celebrate his 17th birthday and here for 3 weeks. We are both from the same country also which is pretty cool
I'm here with my grandma and he's there with his older cousin. I bumped to him at the beach last week. We are both into surfing and went together few times. We went dancing as well. He can actually dance and it was so nice dancing with someone that legit dance. We just clicked and it just feel comfortable talking to him. He's like one of those ppl that actually make you feel good about yourself/more confident when you are around them. Very rare to find. Most ppl are pleasant but don't have that effect
Yesterday I bumped into him in a beach alone and ended up talking/laughing for about 6 hours about random stuff and made these really neat sand castles and sand snow men. I don't know what it is about him but everything he does is so.. so alluring. Little stuff like just brushing his hands through his hair, his dimples, the darn lip bites. Around 11pm we finally decided to go to our hotels to sleep. He decided to kiss me all of a sudden and we made out for several minutes (with serious neck kisses) and there was some light groping and we almost had oral sex until I ended it. I just simply said we haven't done anything to be ashamed of but we shouldn't go further than this. He was super respectful and apologized and we went our separate ways.
I spent the whole day with him today but he hasn't tried anything with me. I know this wouldn't be a long term thing but even short term fling is nice to think about. Sexual fling would be nice but given the situation I am leaning more towards romantic fling ( just making out, holding hands, cuddling etc and not sex). If we are still somehow in contact after he turns after he turns 18 then maybe it can esclaate to a sexual one. But the sexual aspect is not a priority to me. I would still want to be with him if we never had sex. It just feels people are ok with such relationship if both parties are 18 and over. But 17 is literally one year younger than 18. and it's above the age of consent in most countries which is 16. How morally wrong is it really tbh? I would really appreciate rational/logical/respectful answers.. which I know is probably too much to ask for

2023.06.09 22:17 furryboy3254 Healing question

Healing question
The first photo is what it looked like when I removed the first saniderm at the 24hr mark. Looks great with no peeling or redness
The second photo is what it looks like when I just removed the second saniderm at the 3 day mark as it was starting to leak out the bottom. Texted my artist and he said it looks like the saniderm ripped off part of my skin (at the top). He also said I should have kept the second sheet on for 5-7 days but the saniderm website says 3-6 and if it starts to leak to take it off so I figured I was ok to take it off (I took it off then texted him the image of the redness/ripped off part)
Both removals of the saniderm were done in the shower after the adhesive had been properly wetted and I pulled in the direction hair grew which was recommended.
The rest of the tattoo looks great. Any recommendations on how to continue with the healing process?

2023.06.09 22:16 Brief_Tap_8353 My Best Friend of 12 years just secretly got married to a cheater without telling me

My BFF of 12 years just got married to a cheater without telling me.
Here is the back story: my friend (25 F) and I (25 F) have known each other since 8th grade. After high school I moved about an hour away to go to college and really only see each other a few times a year. However, despite this, we still remain close and always turn to each other. Well she has a history of dating really shitty guys. Every boyfriend she has ever had has either cheated on her or was verbally abusive.
About 5 years ago she got engaged to this guy who had serious drinking problems and would constantly stalk her and throw fits whenever she wanted to hang out without him. She stayed in that relationship for about 4 years before finally breaking it off. It was a really hard breakup as he continued to stalk her until his parents intervened. Well not even 6 months pass and she jumps into a relationship with another guy. Her and this new guy date on and off for the past two years. She must’ve broken up with him at least six times due to the fact that he lives an hour away and is generally a shitty human.
Well a month ago I got a call from her telling me that she caught him cheating. And not the mild flirty kind, like full on multiple girlfriends. He tried to lie and cover it up but she stormed out. That night I stayed at her house and talked shit about him and made cupcakes. I thought that was the end of it. Well yesterday, I get a text from her with pictures of both of them wearing wedding rings. Our state doesn’t allow same day marriage so they drove all the way to Tennessee and didn’t tell anyone.
I don’t know what to do. On one hand, I’m hurt that she didn’t tell me. We had always planned to be each others maid of honor and knowing that she didn’t want me there for something as special as marriage really hurts my feelings. On the other hand, I’m concerned that he is emotionally abusive and I don’t want her to be legally tied to someone like that. I also just want her to be happy and I’m not sure how to tell her that I’m here for her without endorsing this marriage. What should I do?

2023.06.09 22:15 HorrorJunkie123 I Work at a Small Town McDonald's. My Manager Makes us Follow a Strange Set of Rules - I Think I'm in Way Over my Head.

If you need to catch up, you can do so here.

A couple of college kids stumbled in, trying to hide the fact that they were obviously stoned out of their minds, and retrieved a pickup order. I watched as they clumsily staggered out the door. One of them held it politely for a small old lady. An old lady wearing a shawl. She didn’t utter so much as a thank you, beelining up to the register with purpose. I was exhausted, up well past my normal operating hours, so I had completely forgotten about the rules. Big mistake.
The woman glowered up at me, face obscured from view. Her head covering was black as well as the rest of her outfit, not unlike a ninja you’d see in a movie. The aura she radiated frightened me, but not enough to release me from my sleepy haze.
“Hello, how can I help you?” I yawned, lazily covering my mouth.
The woman didn’t move a muscle. She scowled at me, yellow reptilian eyes piercing my psyche and sending my heart into overdrive.
“Ma’am? Would you like to order something?”
Nothing. The longer we continued our staring match, the more sedated I felt, and not just due to the lack of sleep. She had some sort of strange pull over me. I nearly nodded off, my mind wandering back to the instructions.
Before I passed out, I murmured, “where’s Tony?”
Suddenly, I was released from my trance and the woman was nowhere to be found. Like she had simply vanished into thin air. My eyes widened. That was close. Too close. I trudged to the sink and splashed some cool water in my face, then poured myself a large cup of coffee. I knew it would probably keep me up well past closing, but hey, if it helped me avoid another incident like that, I was all for it.
I had just finished dumping the dustpan into the trash when I felt it. A peculiar sensation crept over me like bugs crawling on the back of my neck. I was being watched. But from where? I sensed it coming from the drive thru. I whipped my head in its direction. Empty. It shifted to the dining area. No one was there. I grew lightheaded and panic began to surge through my system. A breeze swept past my ear, and I swear I could hear a soft almost imperceptible voice whisper, “Blair.”
I bolted to the office, slamming the door shut as quickly as I could. What was that? I paced around the office like a caged animal, anxiously waiting for something, anything to happen. After what felt like an eternity, it began to dissipate without incident. I sat there for a moment, contemplating if this was really the right career path for me.
Was every night like this? I was snapped back to reality by static emanating from my headset. I ripped it off until the noise stopped. A bumbling male voice crackled through it.
“Hey, uh, is this place open?” he slurred, obviously under the influence.
“Yeah. What do you want to order?”
I was beginning to lose my cool. Between all the strange occurrences and the inebriated customers, my patience was wearing thin.
“I’ll have a filet-o-fish meal.”
“Coming right up.”
I made my way back to the kitchen and began preparing his order.
“Who the hell comes to McDonald’s at one-thirty in the morning for a freaking filet-o-fish?” I grumbled, purposely dousing his sandwich in sauce.
I served the man, hoping to be rid of him as soon as possible.
“Thanks. Hey, is that a kid at the counter?”
I turned my head and sure enough, there he was. A mess of blonde tangles and deep blue eyes peered at me from the register. I sighed.
“Yeah, I’ll take care of him. Have a good night.”
A child. Unaccompanied in my restaurant. Just what I needed. I began to approach the counter when rule seven blared in my mind like a tornado siren. I froze mid-stride.
“Just ignore him, Blair. It’s almost two. You got this,” I reassured myself, starting my closing duties early.
That was easier said than done. The child began wailing, shrill high-pitched screams reverberating off the walls. He ran into the kitchen area, allowing me a full view of his tiny frame. The boy couldn’t have been older than six. His Pac-Man T-shirt looked well outdated, and he was filthy, as if he hadn’t showered in years. He began tugging on my shirt, begging for attention.
“Please help me, lady. I can’t find my mommy,” he cried, tears streaming down his rosy cheeks.
He was relentlessly pulling at my clothing. That was it. I’d reached my breaking point. If this child, monster, demon, whatever he was, planned on killing me, he could go ahead and put me out of my misery. I was done.
“Get out! Just screw off and leave me the hell alone!”
He immediately quit sniffling and straightened up as if I’d flipped a switch. Red tinged his striking pupils. Dread began sinking into my gut. A malicious grin blossomed across his lips.
“You made the right choice,” he growled as he headed toward the exit.
“Weirdo kid,” I mumbled, returning to cleaning.
I finished up and waited around for two to hit, praying for a quiet, uneventful end to my first nightmare closing shift. Of course, my prayers went unanswered. I had a mere three minutes until I was supposed to clock out when I spotted it. A dark red viscous liquid oozing from beneath the stove.
“Great. Awesome. Just what I needed.”
I filled up a mop bucket in the storage closet and began sopping up the mystery fluid. If it wasn’t blood, you could’ve fooled me. A persistent copper taste assaulted my tongue every time I opened my mouth. I gagged, forcing vomit back down my throat. The stuff just wouldn’t stop coming. On my third bucket-full of sloshing crimson, I finally started gaining an upper hand.
I mopped fervently as blisters erupted across my hands from the friction of the wooden handle. All the not-blood had been disposed of. I breathed a sigh of relief, careful to avoid splashing myself as I dumped the last of it down the drain. I’d done it.
“Take that, bitches! I win!” I cheered as if I’d just claimed first prize at the Indy 500.
My celebration was short-lived once I glanced down at my phone. 2:35 A.M. I bolted to the freezer, scooping up a couple bags of frozen patties. I slashed them open as quickly as I could, hoping in vain that I’d be able to make it out in time. I dumped their contents on the grill, then turned to toss the packaging in the trash. My heart plummeted into my gut.
A man stood before me. His black dead eyes matched that of the small mask encompassing the top half of his face. Wispy red hair sprouted from his floppy hat. A matching tattered black and white striped uniform framed his features, accompanied by a dingy red tie dotted with images of burgers. He grinned at me, jagged rotten teeth sending a chill undulating through my entire body. He spoke, a rough gravelly voice shattering the tense silence.
“Look, I know you’re new here, so I’ll spare you this time. But if I ever catch you in here this late again, I won’t think twice about increasing my calorie intake.”
His wicked smile exuded a malevolent hunger that still haunts my nightmares. A wet gray tongue wormed its way around his cracked withered lips. I felt like a mouse about to be devoured by a rattlesnake. He scowled at me.
“What are you still doing here? GET OUT!”
I suddenly regained my mobility. I tore through the dining area and burst into the cool night air. The Hamburglar’s soulless stare followed me into the vacant parking lot. I hurriedly locked him inside and raced to my car as a torrent of emotions flooded through me at once. Fear, anger, and confusion were all prominent on my desolate drive home. In the end, rage won out.
I wasn’t scheduled the next day, but I was determined to make that smug prick in charge at least give me some sort of explanation. I returned to the golden arches around four hours later running on zero sleep and a whole pot of Maxwell House. With fire in my eyes, I flung the door open and marched straight to Dave’s office.
“Oh, yeah, it was great. Had his car repossessed and everything. Oh, hey Blitz. Uh huh. Yep. I-”
“For the last freaking time, it's Blair! B-L-A-I-R. Not Blitzen, not Blaziken, not Blakely. BLAIR.”
Dave furrowed his brow, mouth slightly agape.
“Yeah Jim, I’ll have to get back to you.”
He ended the call and furiously pocketed his phone.
“Do you even know who that was? I mean, why the hell do you think you can just storm into my office like this-”
“No, you listen to me, Davey boy. I just had the worst night of my life. Every weird thing that could’ve happened, happened. And you don’t care one bit.”
“I see you’ve become acquainted with our more… troublesome clientele.”
“Yeah. I have. And I’m not dealing with that crap again. I quit,” I hissed, dramatically slapping my hat onto his polished cedarwood desk before turning to walk out the door.
“Wait! Twenty-five an hour.”
I stopped dead in my tracks. I reluctantly faced him. A sly toothy grin was stamped on his greasy face. I mulled it over. That was almost double what I was currently making. I could have my college paid for in no time.
“Twenty-seven and you’ve got a deal.”
“You drive a hard bargain, Mrs. Blair. I accept,” he said, extending his hand.
I begrudgingly shook it, cringing as his sweaty palm gripped mine.
“I’m glad you were able to see reason. Welcome to the night crew.”

Secret to well behaved curls, 2 hour drive with the windows down 🤣
Don’t know if I belong here or the wavy subreddit. I have no idea what sort of curls I have?
But this is the most well behaved my curls have been in a while, started with wet hair at the start of the journey and perfect dry curls by end of the drive with windows down. So I guess I have to do a 2 hour drive every wash day from now on!
Routine was:
Wash with loccitane almond shampoo and conditioner (I know, I know, silicones and sulphates, but it seems to be the best shampoo for my hair and I have tried all sorts)
Comb through with a shower comb while the conditioner is on my hair. Rinse. Apply a little conditioner again to ends.
Apply aunt Jackie curl custard while soaking wet.
Plop hair with microfibre towel
2 hour drive with the windows down blowing my hair all over the place until dry.

2023.06.09 22:14 cm-1414 Why Abortion is Healthcare and Must Be Kept Safe and Legal!

Why Abortion is Healthcare and Must Be Kept Safe and Legal!
Mayron Hollis and her husband were surprised but still excited when they learned that Mayron was pregnant again a few months after giving birth to their first child. They didn’t know that because of reproductive healthcare restrictions and bans, Mayron would spend the next 6 months fighting for her life.
Because Mayron had a cesarean section, and her second pregnancy was very close to her first, she developed a cesarean scar. By the time she and her husband made the decision to terminate the pregnancy, Tennessee’s state abortion ban had already gone into effect.
Tennessee law criminalizes abortion unless to save a woman's life. The problem is that the physician can only prove that it was to save a woman’s life after they have been charged with a felony. As a result, many physicians are unwilling to perform the procedure even if it is medically necessary.
After being denied care, Mayron was left to wait in fear. At 25 weeks, she was admitted to the hospital for excessive bleeding. The doctors needed to perform an emergency hysterectomy.
This story is a clear example of why abortion must be kept safe and legal. Abortion is healthcare. This procedure should be accessible to everyone who needs or chooses it.

2023.06.09 22:14 quickhelpthxx Best Honeywell purifier for a 600 sq ft condo. Dealing w/construction dust (open to other brands)

I had an HPA200 a for several years. Gave it away about 2 years ago to someone who really needed it during the wildfire smoke. I liked it, it worked. I have no complaints.
My condo is currently under construction now and I had a water leak that’s being fixed so mold particle filtration would be ideal in whatever I get next. I’m very aware purifiers can’t stop mold growth and all of that.
For some context, I replaced my Honeywell a year ago with a cuisinart purxium purifier. It’s an absolute piece of garbage. It seemed like a steal on sale for $250 and being capable of filtering up to 1,000 sq ft and it had good reviews. Well, I ran that thing for months. There’s construction dust all around my place. Not one piece of lint, debris, or even a single dog hair has collected in the filter! The filter is still as white as the day I got it despite running it for months on end. They even sent me a new filter to try to remedy the situation but it didn’t work and now my warranty is up so it’s literally a $250 piece of plastic that I’m stuck with.
ANYWAY… at this point I just want something that really works. The hpa200 would be too small given the construction now. Is the enviracaire any good? What about buying two HPA300s? Any suggestions/ideas? I’m open to whatever. I don’t care about Bluetooth, wifi, lights, bells and whistles. Or what it looks like. I really just want something that actually works.

2023.06.09 22:13 DL915 31 [M4F] California/Anywhere/Online - Nerdy Guy looking for a Nerdy Girl

Hello. I'm a 31 year old Mexican living in the Central Valley (Merced to be a little more precise). I'm a bit of an introvert with super high anxiety, and its caused me to shy away from dating for far too long. I'm looking for any women who are interested in talking regularly to see if we make a real connection.
A bit about me: 5'10, about 200 lbs, with black hair and brown eyes. I'm a high school math teacher. I got a house a year go (still figuring out all there is to being a homeowner lol). I like to watch sports (mostly football. I can talk football all day) and play video games (but I'm not much of a gamer...I just play when I can). I'm a pretty big comic book geek, as well as a fan of anime and manga. As you can see, I'm a pretty big nerd, so nerdy girls are especially welcome. However, I would love to hear about someone's interests that are different from my own.
If anyone wants to talk, just let me know, and we can go from there. Thank you to anyone who reads this. Have a nice day!

2023.06.09 22:12 fish-mouth Soulmate cat - Hugo - lost while on vacation

His name was Huganiel-Fantastic Sebastien James (name). He was a black, domestic short hair who was rusty in the sun. He was peculiar and so full of life until the last day. He loved Garrus Vakarian from Mass Effect and would sit as close to the screen when he came on and sleep all the time on the Garrus body pillow I had. I named him after Hugo Baskervilles, Sebastien Moran and James Moriarty from Sherlock because his actual name - Buddy - sucked ass.
He was so small. He was neutered at 4 months and they fucked it up and lobbed the whole thing off on accident. When we got him, I was only like.. 13. Maybe 12 and I didnt have a cat in years. I was depressed, planning to end it all and my mom got asked to watch a cat for a month while they moved. They called to get him after two years and thousands in vet bills. I could keep Hugo or get what I always wanted - a maine coon. I chose Hugo. He was my kitty, my guy.
He hated me at first. He had been adopted, left alone for months in apartments, returned to shelters... I went on a trip in December, just weeks after we met, and when I came back he meowed so loud it was like singing. He was my buddy, my best friend, I did everything for him. I would bring home food from the cafeteria to share with him because we couldn't always get food. I was so scared of insects I was agoraphobic and he ate spiders and cockroaches for me.
He would sit in my lap, he would purr for me, he would let me pick him up, I would bring him to bed and when I wouldn't let myself sleep, he would walk me to bed. I brought him everywhere, I have over a thousand photos over four phones. When I didnt have a phone, I drew him. I could squeeze his primordial oouch, I could trim his nails, I could pet his legs.
I moved out in December 31st and I took him with me. He was 14 then and will always be 14. He died June first, while I was in Dollywood. He just passed of natural causes and was peaceful and found in good time by our pet sitter. I didn't always treat him well, I struggled with his litter and I couldn't always feed him.
I dont dream anymore and I miss him. I want to dream and be with him, hear his purr, feel his body settle onto the bed between me and my wife. I got mad at him in the last week I was with him because he kept trying to sit on me while I was rolling around. I didn't mean it, baby boy. I really didn't. I didn't see I love you when I left because I thought he'd be there. I never took anything for granted except him. I really thought he would live forever.
I really thought he was my son and I am beyond grief now. I feel it so intensely I feel like I'm going to be this forever. I miss you kitty boy. I love you and I miss you. I hope we see each other again and we'll be buried together baby boy.
