Acia bowls near me

I left before the interview

2023.06.06 19:17 Microwave_7 I left before the interview

They hit every red flag.
I got to the location on time, but the building had a different business name on the front and no street number. I called the phone number I was given and asked if this was the building because it was labelled "Other Business Center" and not "This Business." The receptionist laughed at me and said I was "probably at the right place, but if not, there's another location in the city." Okay? So I go inside and only after you walk through the 30ish yard foyer do you see a sign for "This Business."
I walk in and 3 receptionists are talking amongst each other. We all look at each other, I smile, and they go back chatting for another minute until one woman leaves (I'm assuming for break because she brought her things). Then they acknowledge me and tell me to go sit in the waiting room.
Twenty minutes later one of the receptionists frantically walks to a clerk near me and asks where someone is because the woman who was supposed to be interviewing me is busy. Then she runs to the back of the office and comes back 5 minutes later. She said (to the clerk, not me, but loud enough so I could hear) that she's going to my interviewers office because nobody can find or contact anyone else.
At this point its been half an hour. I've seen too many red flags and I'm ready to go home. I go tell the last remaining receptionist that I was supposed to have an interview, but nobody's come to get me and I can't wait around any longer. I give her my name and say that the interviewer has my information if she wants to reschedule, but I'm sorry and I can't keep waiting.
The receptionist who has been on the goose chase comes running down the hall and says that my interview was at noon (so, right now). I say that I was at 11:30 (I have it written down from my phone call last week) and she must have gotten the time wrong, but I can't wait and to contact me if she likes.
I applied for 3 or 4 positions with this company back in April because they were "urgently hiring," but they waited 2 months to call me. On top of that, the woman who I spoke with (and who was supposed to interview me) said that after reading my resume she thought I would be better suited to a different job I didnt apply for. She didn't know the salary, benefits, duties, job name, or job description off the top of her head. I asked her to send me the details so I could familiarize myself with the duties and prepare for the interview. She said that she would "try to find someone at the other office with the job decription" and email me the details. She never did. She also never emailed me to confirm the interview like I had asked. Then she gets the time wrong and tries to blame me.
And I thought my current job was bad. No wonder this place can't hire anyone. I can't even say this was the most unprofessional interview I've ever had (or, I guess, didn't have) because when I was in my 20s I went to a group interview for a sales job and another time I wanted an hour for my interview. I'm sick of it at this point.
How can businesses be so unprofessional and sloppy, but I'm expected to show up early and beg to work there. I already have an okay job at a bad company. I've applied to over 100 jobs since December and I've had a total of 4 interviews.
I'm glad I had a better interview this morning for a firm I'm really interested in 🤞
It's rough out there.

2023.06.06 19:17 IAmNotPaulWaitzkin Starting therapy and am terrified

It was suggested to me that I start therapy. I’m really fearful of going, but I scheduled something for Friday. Big win for me. But I’m having a lot of fears about it. I wonder if any of it is normal or how I can ease those fears before my initial appointment so that it isn’t so painful.
I may have a fear of unfamiliar spaces? Maybe that’s part of my issue. I’m also not sure how much I’m still supposed to pretend to be happy. So in general I’m just not sure how the conversation will go or how it is supposed to go and that’s frightening.
I also may be gatekeeping suffering on myself. There’s been a number of events that have disturbed me all of my life and yet I don’t know why they were so disturbing to me. And I can hardly remember them. My situation wasn’t nearly as bad as others’ so I feel like if I get help from a therapist, I’m kinda like the guy at work who notices the sales team had a huge success and celebrated with cake and ice cream, so I sneak into the multipurpose room to snag some for myself even though I played zero role. I don’t understand how I can feel that what happened had no impact (or at least shouldn’t have had as strong an impact as it did and Im just choosing to make a mountain out of a molehill) and yet I’m ruminating about 24/7. I remember when that stuff was going on and I tried to reach out to my mom for help, she either said I was making it up for attention, misunderstanding what happened, overreacting, or stupid for falling for it. So maybe it makes sense that I doubt how much I am worth of therapy?
I have never talked about my life. I have always used tactics to dodge personal questions. And simple questions like, “what did you eat for breakfast/lunch”. I don’t feel comfortable telling people that I ate like a degenerate, or skipped eating entirely just to avoid eating like a degenerate or just am too depressed to eat sometimes. Its going to be hard to break that fear of being shamed.
I also remember very little. Most of the really hard stuff happened when I was very young. And I know how easily we can misremember and accidentally add, remove, or alter details from memories that long ago, especially at that age. And I don’t want to accuse anyone of something they didn’t do. But I also don’t want to leave out any details that could provide insight.
I’m really ashamed of what happened, how I handled it, and how its effecting me today. I’m scared my therapist is going to look down on me. And even if they are compassionate in the session, they will go home and think, “wow that guy who is definitely not named Paul sure is pathetic. I really pity him and I feel sorry for his friends and family for the burden I’m sure he casts on them. How philanthropic of them to talk to that man not named Paul.” Not sure why I even care what my therapist thinks in their free time. Btw, I’m also worried that people reading this post will think the same. Please don’t tell me if you do, thanks :)

2023.06.06 19:16 ovni9 28[M4F] France/Online. Bored, and looking for friendship (or more)

Hey :) my name is Simon, I'm 28, I live in France near Paris. I'm working as a psychologist in the field of mental health. I recently broke up and I'm looking for female friends for daily conversations. If we get along well I'm also open to something more :)
About myself: I'm white, 181cm, around 70kgs, I have blue eyes and light hairs. Personality wise I'm a calm, mostly introverted guy but I can easily show my wild side when I'm in company of close people. I'm very open minded and open to any kind of discusisions and opinions.

2023.06.06 19:15 GiselePearl Are aliens attempting to communicate with me via my breast?

(Title is my dumb attempt at humor.) But for real, my breast is vibrating inside. Kind of like an eye twitch but at a much, much faster frequency. When I place my hand over it, I can't feel it from the outside, but it's definitely buzzing in there. It's not exactly painful but not pleasant either. Uncomfortable and disconcerting. Yesterday it was maddening and just wouldn't stop.
Today it's been nearly silent. The aliens must have given up trying to communicate with a dullard like me.
I had my 2nd biopsy last Friday. This one was MRI guided and hurt so much more than the ultrasound guided. I had no buzzing after the ultrasound one but this one ... woo wee. It's like my boob is picking up frequencies. What the heck is this buzzy boob?
Lumpectomy (?? pending some results I'll get any hour now - OMG the anxiety) on Friday. Am I going to have revenge of the buzzy boob after that too?

2023.06.06 19:14 Historical-Try-7683 possible system-questioning

the more i read about OSDD the more i see myself in it. ive talked to a couple close friends and therapists about it but i’ve been met with a level of skepticism that is understandable but not necessarily helpful. in contrast when i tell my girlfriend who has DID about some of my experiences she relates, even enthusiastically. we started dating about 5 months ago and i started to read a little bit about did. at the same time i’ve been going through my own journey with identity, trama, and disassociation. i think meeting her has definitely been a catalyst for some of this. i was aware i had some kind of disassociative disorder since childhood and i know for sure i have cptsd but i started to ask more questions about my own dissociative disorder about a month ago, after being badly triggered. the other side is that i’ve finally gotten to a safe place about a year and a half ago and i’ve spent a lot of that time finally being able to process that trauma. so im afraid i’m going through some denial/uncertainty. i’m nervous to tell my girlfriend just yet, and i feel like it might be helpful to hear the opinions of other systems.
so now i’ll get a lil into some of the details. i won’t go into everything because it’s really a lot. yesterday i filled 6 or 7 page’s of things that suggest the possibility of being a system.
after being badly triggered i had a day where i blacked out most of the day. i suspected i had ran an errand and my therapist suggested i look at my bank statement. when i did i remembered some of the things that happened but only in the 3rd person. i actually did a lot, it was a busy day by any standard. my memory is of being very distressed and disassociated but i’m watching myself function on a level that exceeds my masking ability and my own executive function on a good day. i have autism, adhd, and acute dyslexia resulting in terrible executive function and it makes this very difficult to explain.
shortly after this i told my therapist how affective and calming it was to speak to my inner child during a crisis. they told me about IFS. i started to discover parts, and this is when i really started to suspect that there might be a lil more than CPTSD.
i’m a trans woman and i’ve noticed that my memories of when i presented as male are almost all in the 3rd person but my memories of presenting femme are all in the first person.
i also have a near constant dialog with a voice in my head. it usually takes on the voice of people in supportive relationships in my life. it doesn’t say much but it can be critical, and it asks a lot of questions. it’s always analytical, logical, and fairly stoic. it seems to help me process my thoughts and feelings. i speak with them so much, i spend hours a day pacing around my house having discussions with them.
i noticed in the last year that i sometimes have two streams of consciousness. it doesn’t last long and it can be difficult to focus on one or the other. i initially brushed it off and kind of assumed it was normal
yesterday i really leaned into my doubts about it and heard an agitated voice tell me how stupid and annoying that i feel this way.
a part also wanted me to tell my girlfriend not to do this thing that is triggering to us. i couldn’t imagine her doing something like that but it seemed important to tell her anyway, so i did.
theres a lot of other stuff and it pretty much nails the cptsd diagnosis but a lot of the cptsd experience seems to fall short of explaining what i feel like is agency in some of my parts. i’m trying to be patient but i we’re a lil frustrated with the process at times. i want answers and my parts sometimes feel alienated by my questions, but my history of ignoring their needs to focus on external pressures.
it’s easy for me to rationalize things and explain them through autism or dyslexia.i also struggle with imposter syndrome which is particularly not helpful part of me is fine with not having definitive answers, kinda like if it’s working why question it so much. but part of me also wants some external validation, especially considering my anxiety about what that means for my relationship with my GF.
any input is greatly appreciated 😊

2023.06.06 19:14 Adorable-Ad-3223 Need Help Managing Programming Expectations.

I have a dream project and lack the skill to do it or even form the right expectations about if I can pay someone to do it for me. Long story: I help people with disabilities obtain employment. Common barriers are lack of resumes and inability to write a resume due to limited ability to explain their experience. I created a PDF Master Application, where they track all their past and current work experience.
I want a way to take that information and have a program see the job titles then pull a list of tasks associated with the job from a website called ONet (API for that website are public). I want the list to have check boxes near them to people can select the things from the list which they have actually done and remove the unchecked. This will be saved as a "skills list" for future use and for building self-confidence by showing all the tasks they can do.
I then want the dates, company, title, and address pulled from the master application and plugged into a basic Chronological Resume template which I have also already made (only in Word so far).
The end result is that a person should be able to have a basic resume ready to go quickly while only requiring the ability to read and type a few words or with the assistance of someone who can.
My question is, is this possible? Is it a weeks work, a month? How much is it worth, I am thinking I will have to pay for it myself or find a grant to pay for it and give it to people opensource.

2023.06.06 19:14 Upper-Yogurtcloset55 i have an issue with connection due to feeling “smarter” than others and i hate the broken system i live in, but trying to leave it is just as scary. my life goal is to educate others to make a more stable world for others, but life can be so disgorging and i don’t want to lose track of my goal.

i’m 16 and live in America. the country itself isn’t all bad, but i believe our way of capitalism is inherently broken and unfair, and causes many of humans day to day issues. i tend to look at everything over logically and for some time i entirely emotionally disconnected from the world. but after doing inner self work and changing my way of life for a while now i’ve become immersed in self improvement. i find it hard to spend time or fully connect with others because everyone focuses on the trees and not the forest, and often when i try to speak on deep or large topics others don’t have much to say or they feel like i’m assuming i’m better than them. which i may be, but i never judge others. i aspire to teach others the lessons and ideas i’ve learned that positively impact my life. i understand everyone is a product of their environment and America has for a long time been what i’d call “an unstable environment” many are set up to fail from the start, but i realized i’ve been given a golden opportunity in life to help others, and i feel the need to do something larger then life just to feel truly accomplished. i set impossibly high standard for myself and others often look up to me as the “one that has their things figured out” but it’s really hard to care about people that don’t have goals or spend their time doing meaningless tasks. how can i focus on small scale accomplishments and not feel the need to be the best all the time? i’m well aware of why my thinking is this way, but for me being aware of it doesn’t help. i plan to do something like public speaking, journalism or book writing, or maybe even politics if i felt i could change our system here in america. but part of me feels it’s no use, and id be much better off running away to another country and writing books to maybe have an impact on others. i have so many large and interesting thoughts and ways of looking at life but because of that i can often times feel like a loner and like people don’t understand my goals or true emotions. what do i do other than be aware of all this. it’s been on my mind for a while now. if you read this i thank you in advance, Dr k you are truly the type of person i value and look up too. you have such a positive impact on others and truly understand that knowledge and understanding is power. i wish to be anything near what you are one day.

2023.06.06 19:14 sploshfreak i’m the worst daughter and i feel helpless

this post is gonna be long so I apologise in advance. adding nsfw just in case.
my family has financially struggled for as long as I can remember, my childhood was great. we owned a penthouse, my family was happy and I had everything a child ever wanted. all the toys, a bunch of friends and loving parents. this all changed when we moved to another place for dad's work, my mom had to shut her business down because of the move ( most of the monev was being earned by my mom ) we didn't own the home we live in but didn't have to pay rent because the apartment was owned by one of my dad's friends, our neighbours were amazing and it all felt like being in a huge family. when my fourth grade ended we had to move back to our old home because of family issues. those being the fact that my dad had a second family. my mom found out about his second family when she was six months pregnant with me, she never told me to protect my peace of mind. they found our address and tried to harm us so we ended up moving out. When we moved back new tenants were living below us. It was a woman who I will call 'A' for now. A used to force women to become prostitutes and used to sell alcohol. Now the state where I live is dry so no alcohol is allowed unless you had a permit. Even if she did have it reselling is not allowed. I live in India where to this day inter-religion marriages are heavily frowned upon.
My mom a Jain married my dad who is a Muslim. She was kicked out by her parents and wasn't allowed to talk to my dad's side of the family until she converted which she refused to do. When A found out that my mom was a Jain who married a Muslim guy she beat my mom up. I was at a friend's house and when my dad saw her beating my mom up he ran away. A threw glass shards at my mom and beat her up with a metal pipe. Thankfully there were some people around who defended my mom. For five days we lived at my dad's friend's house. We ended up abandoning the house and had the bank seize it. However, A managed to break in from the roof and stole all my mom's valuables. We moved to another place near my dad's friend's house. I was sent to boarding school so that I did not have to deal with my parents. I spent my sixth and seventh grade there before covid hit. This is when I found out the truth about my dad.
He and his wife beat my mom up when she was pregnant, He sold all my mom's jewellery without telling her to buy his other wife gifts. He took my tablets and my toys and gave them to his other kids. He constantly abuses her and threatens to kill her. As a 13-year-old this was a lot to take in. I fell into depression and started hating my dad. Three years spent in that house has made me realise what a huge piece of shit my father is. My mom's business picked up a little and we were able to move to a better area. This was when I started tenth grade so I was thankful for a new environment. I made new friends, started feeling happier and also convinced and supported my mom to file for a divorce. the only reason he signed the papers is because my mom told him that to earn more money she has to switch back to her old surname. we even changed my name which he doesn't know about yet.
Now the business is slowing down again. We are struggling to pay rent, and can't afford a lot of groceries right now. My mom and dad have been going through a lot of fights and she asked him to leave, to give us peace and asked him to go back to his other family for a few weeks. He threatened to commit suicide and blame my mom for it so she gets jailed. I know my father hates me. He blamed his heart attack on me. I've always said my mind and I've told him several times how I hate him and how he's a terrible terrible dad. He only pretends to love me for his security of housing. My mom works a lot. She's at her office up to 12 hours a day. lk not a lot compared to a lot of other women but she also has to manage her sleep, making food and spending some time with me. The thing is she works in a male-dominated field (in my country ) and therefore a lot of people don't take her seriously. She finishes all the work but never gets her payments. She has to collect about 4.7 crores at this moment ( around 500k USD) but her clients simply delay the payments. She came home crying today. She went to collect a cheque THAT SHE WORKED FOR and the client started saying things like "You should become a prostitute you'll earn more" and "You're a poor girl so I thought I'II do a favour by dropping you off but you're purposefully showing me the wrong roads" "You're brainless" and so much more. Mind you he's thirty years older than my mom and has known her since 2010. He even made a comment sexualising me.
I just don't get it. why my mom? she's an amazing mom, yes we have moments but she's done so much to protect me. I just want her to be happy and I feel terrible knowing that I'll never be enough. I'll never be the daughter she deserves.

2023.06.06 19:13 Hutnugget How much should I be making, as an IT Manager?

I am currently employed as an IT Manager for big company [Alpha]. I started working there last spring, after working perviously as an IT technician for almost 4 years for a smaller company [Beta]. I was paid rather poorly at Beta and my work/life balance was suffering from the low income. So a friend hooked me up with an interview at Alpha. When I got the job at Alpha, I was floored. I was offered a higher salary and I got to work fully remote. The issue is, I am the only IT personnel at Alpha. Even at Beta there were a few others there to handle tickets and the workload.
After a year of working by myself at Alpha, I feel like I am working for peanuts again. I've asked my boss to hire more folks to help split the load, but they've deflected and said to consult with the thrid-party contractor, who does some secondary IT work for another of Alpha's departments. So there isn't anyone coming in the near future to help me get out of this mire. I'm really just wondering how short I sold myself, since I'm barely making enough to cover bills and such. A couple more facts to help facilitate a better picture:
How much should I be making in this position, ballpark?

2023.06.06 19:13 Royal_Recipe7984 AITA for kicking my boyfriend out?

So I 20F have been dating my boyfriend 23M for about 6 or 7 months now. We don’t live together but he stays over a lot. Before we started dating I made it clear that I don’t want him getting drunk every night or smoking weed or honestly anything in my house and if he did come over that he wouldn’t be aloud in the house if he smelled like it. He agreed and it went well till recently, for context I live with my cousin and her fiancé but I own the house. We also have 3 animals that live in the house and I watch my younger cousin all the time, by younger I mean she’s not even in third grade yet. My family also has history of addiction so it was important to me to keep it out of my life as much as possible. Recently however my boyfriend came to me asking if when we moved in together if he could start smoking in the house, I don’t care what he does in his free time but I’ve made it clear I didn’t want it in my home or anywhere near me. He argued that maybe I should try it so I can see it’s not as bad as I think. Once again I don’t care what anyone else does it’s just not something I want in my life. I told him to get out after my little cousin came out of my room. The yelling woke her up from her nap. He left but later called my saying I was being selfish and a b****. I’ve been thinking of breaking up with him but I can’t help but think AITA?

2023.06.06 19:12 gmoor90 Honking at stoplights

Finally made up to New Jersey to apartment hunt. Everything is going great, and I fall more in love with this place every day. But I’ve noticed the time between when the stoplight light turns green and someone honks is literally less than a second.
I was in Rahway at a red light and was the first car. It turned green. The instant it turned green — before I could even get my foot on the gas— the car behind me honked. I noticed it happening to others too while I was sitting in a parking lot near a stoplight. As soon as it would switch to green— honk! Honk!
Is this meant to be aggressive/angry or just to let the front person know it’s green in case they aren’t paying attention?

2023.06.06 19:08 murkishdelight Relocating to London - what do you think of Aldgate East?

I'm about to secure a flat that's like a 5 minute walk to Aldgate East. I searched on Reddit, but haven't found any recent threads about living near Aldgate East, but old threads aren't the most favorable.
I've been doing a ton of research on neighborhoods and where to live, but ultimately decided that I wanted to live somewhere with great public transportation options so I could explore all of London easily. I also wanted to live somewhere with a short commute to work (I'll be working on Old Street), so I can maximize my time spent exploring London and meeting people. I'm also planning to travel quite a bit while I'm in London, so I love how easily I can get to Heathrow from Aldgate East.
I'm moving from NYC; Brooklyn to be exact. I also lived in LA prior to this. So I'm no stranger to "urban environments", homelessness, being street smart, etc. That being said, I'm a pretty small woman. If I were to walk from Old Street to Aldgate East around 8pm/9pm, would that be a horror show?
Generally speaking, I eventually want to settle somewhere in London that has a great culture, feels moderately creative, has great transportation links, and gives me some private outdoor space. Aldgate East obviously isn't that, but I can at least settle there for a bit while I find a neighborhood that DOES offer me all of the above.
Sorry, the questions are all over the place, but appreciate any insight or POVs!

2023.06.06 19:07 Bloody_Grievous I would like some help with a Shorin Ryu Dojo near me!

So I have been looking for arts to teach me good self defence. I decided to do Judo but at the same time I wanted to do a striking art.
Then I learns about Shorin Ryu. And there is a dojo near me. But I don't know if it's legit and if it will teach me what I want in the self defence department (like I said I will be doing it at the same time as Judo).
Now I will put the link to their website so that you can check if they are legit both in lineage and to what I want out of it (Because I translated the site into English on the Kobudo section they describe it as gunfight. That's just a mistranslation so don't mind it):

2023.06.06 19:07 napalmblaziken Help with Mali disaster

So I asked a while back for any interesting nations to play colonial with, and someone mentioned Mali. Mali does pique my interest, given it's location putting it near South America. However, the starting disaster always deters me, given how harsh it is. It's way harsher than what Khmer and Majapahit go through, and considering how many missions need to be finished before it's over, I've always been afraid to play Mali. Any advice for dealing with it?

2023.06.06 19:06 Wise_Function8779 [Review] 30 or so fragrances reviews, for the archives! Some clones, some designer, some niche, cheapies, high end, low end.

Let's just jump right into it! Hopefully this helps some blind buying souls such as myself. Here are some reviews:
Afnan 9PM - JPG Ultra Male: Picked up a bottle at Amazon for $35USD at the suggestion of one of the users in one of my previous threads. Typical paper cardboard housing with Afnan branding. But we're here for the juice anyways. Basic design but... premium feeling. Nice weight, the atomizer cap is also premium. Good strong spray that outputs a cloud of mist, very good atomizer. First spray you're hit with a citrus and lavender scent, fairly fruity, but this almost immediately leaves and is replaced by a very warm scent which I would describe as a spicy amber. This sticks around but only as an undertone to the extreme vanilla. It's not overpowering, but it's identifiable. Very nice. The first time I sprayed it, I immediately identified the JPG heritage in it, I have owned Le Male and that vanilla is identifiable anywhere. Highly recommend. 8/10. Would I wear it again: Yes Would I want to smell it on someone else: Yes Would I buy the full bottle: Have it
Ana Abiyedh Rouge - Baccarat Rouge 540: If this is an accurate BR540 clone, I can confidently say the scent is very mid. Leans heavily on wood and amber, gives CK Obsession vibes oddly. I wear this because others are in love with it. Have gotten raving compliments. But I also rarely wear it alone, layering it with CDNIM. Great performance, lasting many hours projecting, and when it becomes a skin scent it's there until you wash your clothes I swear. Edit: I got a BR540 authentic decant, it's VERY similar. Like REALLY similar. The price difference on the two is nuts. 6/10. Would I wear it again: Reluctantly Would I want to smell it on someone else: Not really Would I buy the full bottle: Have it
Armaf Odyssey Homme - Dior Homme Intense/Valentino Uomo Intense: Almost tobacco spicy like smell on first spray, then settles into a vanilla amber. Lots and lots of amber and vanilla with this one. Good winter fragrance. Affordable price. Average projection and performance of 4-5 hours max. Not really for me honestly, it doesn't stand out. 6/10. Would I wear it again: Meh Would I want to smell it on someone else: Not really Would I buy the full bottle: Have it
Belcam Shades of Blue - D&G Light Blue: A fantastic fresh fragrance, and for the price it's amazing. Definitely the best smelling Belcam cologne yet in my opinion - other than the shit performance. It's so bad guys. Spray and it's become a skin scent within 20 minutes max. Over spray like crazy for a slight chance at this sticking around. Fantastic as just a pillow spray/room scenter imo. 6.5/10, major dings for performance. Would I wear it again: Yes Would I want to smell it on someone else: Yes Would I buy the full bottle: Have it
Belcam Geau Black - ADG Profumo: Has a pepper musk added to the original Acqua Di Gio scent, and I'm not sure I like it. Mid performance, lasting perhaps an hour. Great price as always from Belcam. 5/10. Would I wear it again: Eh Would I want to smell it on someone else: Meh Would I buy the full bottle: Have it
Belcam Geau Original - ADG: When I picked this one up I had a bottle of the original ADG on hand, and upon spraying both on both arms, I found Belcams perfume actually lasted longer than the OG. It is more linear than ADG, but after letting my dad (who's worn ADG for years) try to distinguish between the two after the dry down, he picked Belcams perfume as his choice for which more accurately represented what he thinks of when he sprays ADG! Very intriguing. Good price as always! 7.5/10. Would I wear it again: Yes Would I want to smell it on someone else: Yes Would I buy the full bottle: Have it
Belcam Classic Match - Drakkar Noir: This is obviously intended to be a clone of Drakkar Noir. I have a bottle on hand, so I was able to compare the two. Personally I find the original Drakkar to be midtier at best in terms of performance and general smell, but I digress. Spraying both on me, the initial scent and the dry down both had Classic Match as a dead ringer for Drakkar! There was a bit of a pine undertone that perhaps was not quite right, but very easy to miss. Oddly, when I let my brother and father try out distinguishing the two in the initial spray, they both disagreed with me that one smelled vastly different from the other. It's possible their sniffers were off as we had been at new perfume testing for a while by that point. I have to disagree with them, it's a really good clone. 7/10. Would I wear it again: Yes Would I want to smell it on someone else: Yes Would I buy the full bottle: Have it
Belcam Geau Blue - ADG Profondo: This one from Belcam takes all the notes of ADG that we love and gives it smell! It smells fresher, more vibrant than the original ADG. I have gotten many compliments on this one. Again though, it doesn't last for too long. Maybe an hour to an hour and a half max. Great price! A strong clone of ADG Profondo. 8/10. Would I wear it again: Yes Would I want to smell it on someone else: Yes Would I buy the full bottle: Have it
Belcam Volatile - Viktor and Rolf Spicebomb: This thing succeeds in being a spicebomb-esque clone. It is incredibly spicy, and called volatile for a reason. That being said, it's a lovely fragrance, for a super affordable price, you can't go wrong with this one. Lasting an hour or so before becoming skin scent, it's one of my favorites from this house. 7.5/10. Would I wear it again: Yes Would I want to smell it on someone else: Yes Would I buy the full bottle: Have it
Club de Nuit Sillage - Creed Silver Mountain Water: So intriguing. I've never seen someone capture the smells of both metallic twang and freshwater nature green in the same scent. A good price, from a good house, and well worth a try. 7.5/10. Would I wear it again: Yes Would I want to smell it on someone else: Yes Would I buy the full bottle: Have it
Creed Virgin Island water: Opens very tropical, lemony with a coconut oil background, it's not as straight coconut as I expected, and has a much appreciated twist of citrus. It quickly dies down into a lemony coconut. I can still faintly smell this on myself as a skin scent like 12 hours later. Not bad. Pretty good as a summer fragrance. Gives me "out of the shower" lotion vibes. 7/10. Would I wear it again: Yes Would I want to smell it on someone else: Yes Would I buy the full bottle: Time will tell...
Dolce and Gabbana Light Blue: Didn't realize the original light blue wasn't unisex lol so I ended up trying the women's version. It opens with a ton of citrus, lemon, and then it gave me lemondrops, it kind of got more candy like. After a few minutes on it's settled into a solid lemon citrus where I expect it to remain. 6/10 Would I wear it again: No Would I want to smell it on someone else: Yes Would I buy the full bottle: Not for me. Too linear and citrus sweet.
English Laundry's Tahitian Waters: Picked this up for $4 at Marshall's on discount, an absolute steal I could not pass up. It has a bottle that captivates me for some reason, chrome at some angles, nearly see through at others. It has a faint alcohol smell to it, but it's not a big deal. I definitely get citrus, and some have described the dry down as musk with baked cookies. Overall very tropical, and super refreshing! It's downfall is weak performance, gone within the hour almost. Fairly strong sillage, many people being able to smell it on me after application from a few feet away! Likeable, and a nice summer frag. 7.5/10. Would I wear it again: Yes Would I want to smell it on someone else: Yes Would I buy the full bottle: Have it! If you can get it on the cheap, it's a nice addition to any lineup.
Guerlain Angelique Noir: On first spray you're hit with the most pleasant authentic vanilla bean you've ever smelled. There's a bit of a woody musk background, but this leaves in around an hour for me where only pure sweet vanilla remains. It's a very premium, rich, seductive scent of intense vanilla. 7.5/10 Would I wear it again: Yes Would I want to smell it on someone else: Yes Would I buy the full bottle: No. It's way overpriced for what it is. It's good, but not THAT good. I don't think I'll look beyond my little sample for this one.
Hermes H24: A very woody/green fragrance, it's herbal at it's...almost finest? It smells like boiled peanuts up close to me, not in a bad way necessarily, but also not in a good way. This may be due to the floral notes similar to that of peanut oil or something. Either way, it's a decent pick for the price, projection is just ok, lasted on me for 4 hours before becoming skin scent.... nothing too special, but it smells different which is always nice. Just didn't wow me. 6.5/10. Would I wear it again: Eh. Yeah I guess. Would I want to smell it on someone else: Not really, it's not bad I just wouldn't seek it out. Would I buy the full bottle: Probably not. It's just not for me.
Kilian Angel's Share: I'm in love. This is what love is. I thought I loved cooking. I thought I loved puppies. I thought I loved my parents. No. I love Kilian Angel's Share. This is my top fall fragrance, #1 for clubbing, #1 for evocativeness, #1 for NOSTALGIA. This has personal meaning for me, but when I was younger, sometimes my parents would make desserts for us, and one of my favorites was apple pie. They made it with cinnamon and the most delicious syrupy sweet apples and perfectly crisp crust. This fragrance takes me back to those times. Some insist there is no apple note and that what I'm smelling is just the cinnamon, perhaps this is true, but I die on the hill that this fragrance smells exactly like vanilla, cognac, and homemade cinnamon apple pie :) Its expensive, but in my opinion, you can't put a price on memories and emotions, and that's what this fragrance brings to me. I recently got a good deal on a full bottle, thank you to the user that helped me go back to when I was 8 years old with just a single spray. 9/10, price is a hold up if you're looking at retail. Would I wear it again: Always Would I want to smell it on someone else: I would pass away or propose on the spot Would I buy the full bottle: Never discontinue this Kilian.
Lattafa Asad - Dior Sauvage Elixir: I hate the original sauvage. It offends my nose in so many ways, and I'm not a fan. This however, as a clone of elixir, with it's stronger emphasis on spice and "christmastime" succeeds in taking the little that is good from the original Sauvage and makes it delicious. A very good winter fragrance, at a very good price, with decent performance of 3-4 hours. 8/10. Would I wear it again: Yes Would I want to smell it on someone else: Yes Would I buy the full bottle: Have it
Lattafa Fakhar - YSL Y: I've never owned YSL Y, so I can't vouch for it's accuracy, but I love this one so much. It's such a good fresh scent to spray on, I've gotten many compliments on it, it's price is great, it has good projection, pretty sweet though so if that's not your thing...The performance is nothing to write home about, lasting 3.5 hours max. Blind buy safe for sure. Edit: Everyone claims this is a YSL Y clone, but I got a sample of Valentino Uomo Born in Roma and the two smell very similar. Please let me know if anyone else has experienced this. 7/10. Would I wear it again: Yes Would I want to smell it on someone else: Yes Would I buy the full bottle: Have it
Lattafa Khamrah - Kilian Angels Share: My first boozy cologne, and a blind buy, I was a little worried. I've heard this takes ideas from Angel's Share but perhaps leans towards its own scent profile. Either way, I like Khamrah. It gives a lot of clubbing vibes, and it is a very thick scent, so I'm careful how I spray this one. Great performance, average pricing, interesting packaging. A good cologne to round out your scent profiles in your collection if you are yet to partake in a boozy one. Very sweet. Fragrantica describes it's notes as boozy/balsamic, and I agree. Edit: Got an Angel's Share sample, the two are not particularly alike. The boozy apple smell is very prominent in Angels Share, and I almost smell alcoholic apple pie. I prefer Angels Share in terms of just scent profile. 7/10. Would I wear it again: Yes Would I want to smell it on someone else: Yes Would I buy the full bottle: Have it
Maison Alhambra Bright Peach - TF Bitter Peach: Assaults my nose. I used to hate this fragrance, after using it a couple times, I now just dislike it. Both parents and siblings disliked. Woman friend disliked. It's just too sickly thick in my opinion. Maybe I need more time. 4/10. Edit, I've now worn it a few more times, it's been a week, and I even voluntarily reached for it today. I still found it very cloying, but after about an hour it calmed down and even netted a compliment from a friend! 6/10. Second edit: I got an authentic sample of Bitter peach, the two are close (maybe 80% similar) but the Alhambra is much less light and much more cloying 6.5/10. Would I wear it again: It keeps getting better so yes. Would I want to smell it on someone else: Yes Would I buy the full bottle: Have it
Maison Alhambra Kismet Angel: Starts off like 85% angels share, it lacks the boozy note that fills the air on first spray. However in the dry down it becomes more like 93% similarities, as the cinnamon intensifies just like AS. Projection is good, about equivalent performance with Angels Share. An hour later I'm amending that, worse performance than AS, it's not quite as potent. Can definitely over spray a bit on this one, I went for three sprays, two wrist one neck. For its lifetime on me it remained as an "Almost Angel's Share". I would buy this. 8.5/10 Would I wear it again: Yes Would I want to smell it on someone else: Yes Would I buy the full bottle: Yes
Maison Alhambra Rose Petals - TF Rose Prick: Bought this for mother. It's definitely rose, and definitely floral. It has powdery notes, and does have some amber going on. I think it's a good scent, just not for either of us when we tried it on. Would like it on an SO. 6/10, pretty linear. Would I wear it again: No Would I want to smell it on someone else: Yes Would I buy the full bottle: Have it
Maison Alhambra Toscano Leather - TF Tuscan Leather: Disclosure I've never smelled the original. This is probably the most I've seen people split on a fragrance. Every guy I've spoken to loves this, it feels very masculine with notes of leather, oil, and tobacco/cigarettes. Every woman I've spoken to hated it. I'm big on this one, I love the smell of leather and this captures it perfectly. Performance is pretty good, lasting about 4-5 hours before fading to a lasting skin scent. 7.5/10. Would I wear it again: Yes Would I want to smell it on someone else: Yes Would I buy the full bottle: Have it
Maison Margiela Replica Coffee Break: I've so far owned two official samples and one traveler of this stuff, and it's one of my favorites from the Replica series. It has a vanilla latte thing going on. Definitely coffee in the opener, and becomes that vanilla latte maybe 50 minutes to an hour after the initial spray on. Very strong performer! 6 hours later I can still smell it easily as a skin scent, for around 3 hours I could easily smell it in the air around me. Garnered two compliments in the same day, truly a lovely scent. Fall leaning I would say, it's fairly sweet. 7.8/10. Would I wear it again: Yes Would I want to smell it on someone else: Yes Would I buy the full bottle: Yes...once I work my way through all that I have currently I probably will.
Maison Margiela Replica Matcha Meditation: Opening thoughts - This fragrance makes me feel something. It's not the best smelling ever, but man I feel good wearing it. It's floral, I get green tea, matcha, and mochi with chocolate or vanilla ice cream. It feels light to me, and airy upon first spray. I don't anticipate this as a scent that will garner lots of compliments, but I am happy wearing this. 30 minutes later thoughts - Scent has calmed down a bit, for a moment it was fairly strong, now it is much more linear, I'm getting mainly vanilla, with some very green herbal background. 1-2 hours - scent has begun fading to a skin scent, still vanilla and herbal. 7/10. Would I wear it again: Yes Would I want to smell it on someone else: Yes Would I buy the full bottle: Maybe
Memo French Leather: Opens floral with a very subtle leather undertone. Immediately in the dry down I begin to get more of a premium leather smell. Leather and rose, but the rose is more dominant and primary than the leather in this one. Matures nicely, and last around 8 hours on me. 7.5/10. Would I wear it again: Yes Would I want to smell it on someone else: Yes Would I buy the full bottle: Maybe
Nautica Voyage: No perfume has ever given me such instant gratification in the summertime as Voyage. It beats ADG Original and Profondo/Profumo soundly in my opinion. I get tons of melon in the opening, and it remains fairly linear. For a reliable, dependable, affordable (very) fragrance, this is a winner in my book, I've even used it as a pillow spray. It lasted a few hours before I had to reapply, but again it's so cheap it's no big deal. I get compliments every time I wear it. It's very versatile and my favorite application time is right out of a hot shower. 9/10. Best time to wear: Spring/Summer Would I wear it again: Yes Would I want to smell it on someone else: Yes Would I buy the full bottle: Already did. Yes. All day long.
PDM Layton: Feels like a cross between 85% JPG and 15% Spicebomb. Is a very nice warm vanilla with some woody spice going on in the background. I didn't feel it was worth the hype, but I wore it during the summer, so wintertime I may feel different. Had pretty good performance! I could smell it on me easily for a couple hours after I had applied just in the air, it only lasted about 5 hours before fading to a skin scent for me with around 3.5 sprays. 7/10, because it didn't stand out to me for the pricetag it's associated with. Would I wear it again: Yes Would I want to smell it on someone else: Yes Would I buy the full bottle: Probably not. There's no shortage of good winter frags out there, I just don't think I would reach for this enough for the money.
Tom Ford Lost Cherry: Boozy cherries with...almond I think? Feels more feminine leaning, but also I don't care because this one ranks high for me on my list. It smells VERY intoxicating, and the cherry is unique, with the booziness adding a hint of seductiveness. Fairly linear scent that lasted maybe a few hours on me, nothing special there, but the notes are to die for. A very good one for layering as well! I'm a fan of this one from Mr. Ford, with points off for performance and price point issues - 8/10. Would I wear it again: Yes Would I want to smell it on someone else: Yes Would I buy the full bottle: If my wallet permits, at least a partial.
Tom Ford Soleil Neige: Makes me feel warm and fresh. A little powder, a little floral. Dry down gives me tons of floral vanilla. Unisex but in my opinion leans more feminine. Has netted a few compliments. 8/10 Best time to wear: Spring/Summer Would I wear it again: Yes Would I want to smell it on someone else: Yes Would I buy the full bottle: Maybe
Qaed Al Fursan: Pineapple for sure, smells very appealing, synthetic and powdery when smelled very close for first few seconds after spray. Does not last long at all. Maybe like an hour max. Over spray for sure. Magnetic cap is a nice touch! Price is competitive to say the least. A very nice mixer to CDNIM EDP. 6/10. Update: I am bumping the rating of this cologne to 7. After letting it macerate, the performance improved about an hour, the scent became less synthetic in the dry down, and the powdery bit was less pronounced. People in my family have RAVED about the smell of this one. I went into this thinking it was somehow an Aventus clone or something, and I wasn't letting it just be its own thing. As a fruity pineapple that I find to be absolutely seductive, I can't recommend this one enough. However, it's scent profile is very linear, so keep that in mind, but you can always be confident in how consistent it is. 8/10. Would I wear it again: Yes Would I want to smell it on someone else: Yes Would I buy the full bottle: Have it

2023.06.06 19:05 Emberashh Robocop 3 gets a bad rap. I loved it as a kid and still do

Don't get me wrong, I fully understand and agree its the inferior of the three. But something about this movie was always just so good and as a kid getting to the street battle at the end was the highlight of watching the whole trilogy back to back.
Ironically though I do find it interesting that the only movie of the three to depict actual poor people in a more positive light is the worst of the three. The first two are really heavy on the late 80s, early 90s poor = criminals tropes, not to mention the insane copaganda.
But the third one goes damn near communist at times and if nothing else at least depicts the cops as actually being there for something other than beating the shit out of poor people and drug addicts inbetween bouts of fighting off comic book villain level criminals.
But, Robocop 3 is just a good romp. Id wager if you took the same basic plot and didn't make it PG13 (and had Weller back) its be held in much higher regard.
The story was leading to what ends up happening in 3, so its not like they jumped the shark on the plot, ninja androids aside, and its really the rating that holds back its best parts.

2023.06.06 19:05 clover_heron [poem] The Old Man's Lazy by Peter Blue Cloud

I heard the Indian agent say,
has no pride, no get up
and go. Well, he came out
here and walked around my
place, that agent. Steps
all thru the milkweed and
curing wormwood; tells me
my place is overgrown
and should be made use

The old split cedar
fence stands at many
angles, and much of it
lies on the ground like
a curving sentence of
stick writing. An old
language, too, black with
age, with different
shades of green of moss
and lichen.
- -He always
says he understands us
- - and why don't
I fix the fence at least;
so I took some fine
hawk feathers fixed
to a miniature woven
- - and hung this
from an upright post
near the house.
- - He
came by last week
and looked all around
again, eyed the feathers
for a long time.
- - He didn't
say anything, and he didn't
smile even, or look within
himself for the hawk.

Maybe sometime I'll
tell him that the fence
isn't mine to begin with,
but was put up by
the white guy who used
to live next door.
- - It was
years ago. He built a cabin,
then put up the fence. He
only looked at me once
after his fence was up,
he nodded at me as if
to show that he knew I
was here, I guess.
- - It was
a pretty fence, enclosing
that guy, and I felt lucky
to be on the outside
of it.
- - Well that guy
dug holes all over his
place, looking for gold,
and I guess
he never
found any. I watched
him grow old for over
twenty years, and bitter,
I could feel his anger
all over the place.
- - And
that's when I took to
leaving my place to do
a lot of visiting.
- - Then
one time I came home
and knew he was gone
for good.

My children would
always ask me why I
didn't move to town
and be closer to them.

Now, they
tell me I'm lucky to be
living way out here.
- - And
they bring their children
to come out and visit me,
and I can feel that they
want to live out here
too, but can't
for some reason, do it.

Each day
a different story is
told me by the fence,
the rain and wind and snow,
the sun and moon shadows,
this wonderful earth,
- - this Creation.
I tell my grandchildren
many of these stories,
- - perhaps
this too is one of them.

2023.06.06 19:04 TheRealDill6942 How I passed after using two days before the test (Weed)

If you were like me, you couldn't sleep and you are currently scrolling this subreddit, desperate for an answer.
Within this timeline, you have three options; Dilute, Fake Pee, or Someone Else's Pee.
I don't recommend Fake Pee because it's hard to fake at a supervised or observed test. Even if it's unobserved, it's still difficult. Same thing goes for someone else's pee, with the added risk that they may not be clean themselves.
I recommend diluting your piss within this timeline. NOTE: This is not "detox". That is a myth used by people trying to make a quick buck. You can't get rid of THC through anything other than waiting it out. This is because THC sticks to fat, and in these tests it's measured by metabolites, or the product of metabolizing the THC. So by overhydrating, there will be less metabolites in your piss, clearing you.
When diluting your pee, you have to worry about a couple factors:
Liquids: Depending on your body type, 2.5-4L is what you should shoot for. Don't drink it all at once, because your kidneys can only filter out .8-1L/hr. Any more than that, and not only does it prove ineffective at diluting your piss anymore, but it can run the risk of water intoxication. So, drink that amount spanning about 3-4hrs.

Color: If your piss isn't yellow enough, they mark it as a dilute and either have you retest or straight up fail you, depending on who your taking it for. To make it appear yellow enough, take 250mg of B-Complex Vitamins about 2-3 hours before the test. In my experience, this landed me well within the range for color.
Specific Gravity: Specific Gravity is the ratio between the g-force in your urine and the gravity of the earth. If this is too low, you will also be flagged as dilute. To combat this, take any form of electrolyte you can will most if not all the liquids you dilute with (Gatorade, Powerade, VitaminWater, LiquidIV, etc..).
Creatinine: Not to be confused with Creatine, Creatinine is the waste product of creatine. If this is too low, it's flagged as dilute. Take ~10mg of creatine 2-3 hours before the test.
Extra Tips:
Make sure you pee a couple times before the test. Your first piss is the one that's the most hot, and around 5-6 is where it is the least.
The beginning and end of a piss is where most of the metabolites are. Piss a couple seconds into the toilet first, fill the cup, then finish the rest in the bowl.
Keep in mind that creatine can raise your blood pressure, so if you have a physical beforehand, have a good reason to explain it. (I was on keto at the time I took the test, and keto is known to raise blood pressure)
If you appear nonchalant, they won't examine as hard as if you are freaking out. If you are having trouble calming down like I did, realize that you are doing everything in your power to make sure you pass. It's out of your control now, and worrying about it won't change the outcome.
Drink coffee to make sure you do your 4-5 pisses before the test. This is because coffee is a diuretic, which is like a laxative but for pee.
Here's how I did it:
Wake up at 7AM. Drink 1 VitaminWater (20 oz). Test is at 10AM, so I took my creatine and B vitamin pills. After 45-60min., I took a piss and drank another one. Rinse and repeat until 10AM. I walked in, put about 3-5 sec. of the stream into the bowl, filled the cup, then finished the rest in the bowl. Piss was slightly less than yellow, but still within the limit. After about a week, I got my results today that I passed.
Hope this helped! You can do this, you can pass!
TL;DR: On the day of the test, you need 2.5-4L of drink with electrolyte, 10mg of creatine and 250mg of B-Complex 3hrs. before test. Space out liquids around 3-4hrs. When you get to the test, piss in the bowl first, get the sample in the middle of the piss, and finish the rest in the bowl. Good luck!
