Stupid College Shit

Had to register for a class in photography for you biology major? Or maybe you had to pay for a room in the college dormitory even though you were living in you own apt, to satisfy student loan requirements? High School AP classes not transfer to your college? This is a place to bitch and moan about college. College life, academics, admin requirements... whatever. Not only a place to vent, but maybe we can help each other out from past experience.

2023.06.03 22:48 PostReplyKarmaRepeat Defending the Draft: Detroit Lions

Brad Holmes is a wizard. What he has done as the Detroit GM in just 3 years has been a playoff push away from being quite remarkable, especially considering the context of succeeding prior general manager Bob Quinn which ended in typical Lions losing fashion. Brad Holmes would immediately come out swinging and first transaction as general manager was trading longtime franchise quarterback Matthew Stafford to the Los Angeles Rams in exchange for two first round picks, a third round pick, and quarterback Jared Goff. At the time, it was bittersweet for fans, as Stafford was the practically the lone bright spot in the last decade (outside of Megatron), but the haul they got in return was at least something. Stafford was injured and already likely leaving to chase a Super Bowl and Detroit was going into full rebuild mode so Detroit fans were just happy with what they could get. Brad ended up hiring a one time Head Coach, Dan Campbell. A pick made purely on the potential he would be able to change the culture with his grind it out, Football attitude Campbell was known for. All in all, it was business as usual for Detroit as they begin yet another rebuild....

Oh parity in sports.... You never cease to amaze us....
Somehow and someway, In Holmes' first draft, Penei Sewell falls to Detroit at #7 and the Lions draft room goes bananas on camera! At the time we did not know it, but Detroit just landed their future Pro Bowl leader in the trenches. In round 4, the Lions scoop a literal Sun God in Amon-Ra St. Brown. Little did we all know the impact both of these players would have today. Both players are arguably top 10 in their position.
Fast forward to 2022 and the Lions are coming off one of the most promising 3-13-1 seasons that you could ever ask for. The team and coaches have bought in to Dan Campbell's grind it out style of Football. The culture seemed to finally be changing and it felt like Jared Goff turning into a solid Stafford replacement, despite being considered a throw on by most in the Stafford trade.
The 2022 draft Brad Holmes' statement to the NFL. It does not matter where you take guys. If you know how to evaluate talent, you go for YOUR guys and you can be successful. Holmes was able to draft Aiden Aiden Hutchinson at #2 (some say he should have been #1), Jameson Williams (best receiver in the draft at 12 via trade), Kerby Joseph (who picked off Aaron Rodgers THREE TIMES IN ONE GAME!), and drafted James Houston and Malcolm Rodriguez in the 6th round. Both players are looking like future defensive stars. Dare I say the best 6th round success since the Pats drafted TB12? Don't @ me lol
The Lions followed up the draft with a MUCH improved 2022, landing a 9-8 winning record and going 8-2 in their final 10 games. Jared Goff is looking like the guy who took the Rams to the Superbowl, every position has young talent and this upcoming 2023 draft is looking like it could seriously push the Lions into serious playoff contention if the cards are played correctly.

Key Offseason Additions:
CB Cameron Sutton -- Signed to three-year, $33 million contract
CB Emmanuel Moseley -- Signed to one-year, $6 million contract.
RB David Montgomery -- Signed to three-year, $18 million contract
OL Graham Glasgow -- Signed one-year, $4.5 million contract
S Chauncey Gardner-Johnson -- Signed to one-year, $8.5 million contract
WR Marvin Jones -- Signed to one-year, $3 million contract

Key Offseason Losses:
Safety DeShon Elliott -- Signed to one-year, $1.77 million contract with Dolphins.
Running back Jamaal Williams -- Signed to three-year, $12 million contract with Saints.
WR DJ Chark -- Signed to one-year, $5 million deal with Panthers.

Round 1: No. 12 (from CLE through HOU and ARI) – Jahmyr Gibbs, RB, Alabama
Flashback! Remember that Stafford trade where they got got the Rams draft pick? You know that pick that was supposed to be in the upper 20s because LA is so good and are coming off winning a Super Bowl? Yea, well they sucked.... Somehow they sucked so bad that that pick turned into the number 6th overall pick.
Odds makers had the Lions grabbing Devon Witherspoon as their secondary was a big need. However when Seattle took him at 5, who knew what would follow? Well, the last thing fans expected.... The Lions ended up passing on Tyree Wilson, Jalen Carter, AND Bijan Robinson by trading down to 12 to take Alabama running back, Jahmyr Gibbs. Hindsight is 2020, but reports now show the Lions wanted Jahmyr over Bijan, which means Holmes and co. got THEIR guy.

Immediately fans realized the inevitable. Fan favorite and oft injured running back, DeAndre Swift, was going to be cut or traded. Almost immediately they traded D'Andre Swift and a 7th round pick for the Saints' 2025 fourth-round pick and a 2023 7th round pick.

This pick is exactly why you and I are sitting on the couch and Brad Holmes gets paid the big bucks. "HoW cAn YoU dRaFt a RuNnInG BaCk ThAt hIgH". Well, the dude is a straight up baller. If I asked you who led Alabama in receiving last year you would probably say some 5 star Wide Receiver. It was Gibbs. Gibbs is being compared Alvin Kamara in the way he can run and catch. He was listed as running a 4.36 at the combine. Gibbs transferred to Alabama last season after spending the first two seasons of his career at Georgia Tech. He carried the ball 151 times for the Crimson Tide in 2022, averaging 6.1 yards per carry and scoring seven touchdowns. He also caught 44 passes for 444 yards and three catching scores. With the departure of Swift and the newly acquired bowling ball back in Montgomery, Gibbs is going to be an immediate impact as a "weapon" and less of a conventional running back. The thunder and lightning combo the Lions will have will be fun to watch behind their top 5 O Line.


Round 1: No. 18 – Jack Campbell, LB, Iowa
"HoW cAn YoU dRaFt a RuNnInG BaCk ThAt hIgH" made sense with the Gibbs pick, but drafting a Linebacker at 18 with other glaring needs like lineman and secondary left Lions fans a bit puzzled by this pick. It hurt a little less when you remember this was their 2nd pick in the first round. Also, many people had Jack Campbell on their board for later in the draft so in terms of liking a guy for who they are, very few people are against this pick. But like I said before, Brad Holmes and Dan Campbell go after guys they have faith in. Until they screw up, fans cant complain too much!
But who is this guy and what makes him so good? Well if you care about RAS or "Relative Athletic Score" Jack is outstanding. He scored a 9.98 RAS out of a possible 10.00. This ranked 6 out of 2600 LB from 1987 to 2023. He possesses rare athleticism for being 6-5 and that allows him to be exceptional in coverage. PFF rated him as the highest coverage grade since 2018 Devin White at LSU. He also has great leadership skills as he was Iowa's team captain and won Big10 Defensive Player of the year.
Jack Campbell is going to join a much improving linebacking core that is led by team captain Alex Anzalone and 2nd year stars Malcolm Rodriguez and James Houston. The Lions will likely play him on the outside because off his athleticism but I am certain he will be moved all around the field.


Round 2: No. 34 (from ARI) – Sam LaPorta, TE, Iowa
This is getting a bit out of hand for the Lions fans that appreciate positional value when you draft. Clearly Holmes has totally thrown conventional wisdom out of the window. However, tight end IS a need. Of all of the positional units Tight End is probably the weakest. In 2022 the Lions trotted Brock Wright, James Mitchell, and Shane Zylstra....WHOOOO?!?! Exactly...they needed help. Outside of when they took him, most pundits are pretty happy about this pick. Not only did the Lions get their second Iowa captain, but Sam might have landed the best tight end in the entire class.

With LaPorta, the Lions get a player that can do a variety of things. He can play in the slot, in-line or even out wide. This is EXTRA important when you remember that Jameson Williams is suspended for 6 games due to gambling. During his career at Iowa, he had 513 snaps in-line and 304 snaps out of the slot (per PFF). It really wouldn’t be surprising if LaPorta walks into Detroit and earns the starting tight end spot. He has the talent to do it and by being the 34th overall pick, there is going to be some high expectations for him.


Round 2: No. 45 (from DET) – Brian Branch, S, Alabama
For the first time all draft it felt like a player fell to Detroit and they werent reaching for their guy (for better or worse). At 45, the Lions were already drafting their 4th player and wasnt even the end of the 2nd round. Scouts said that Branch was one of the safest picks in the draft due to his lack of a jarring weakness. Branch is siad to have extremely high football IQ which led him to play all around the defense for the Crimson Tide. Branch has primarily handled nickel coverage, but has the range and instincts for single-high or split safety looks. He’s quick, fast and strong with the ability to match up with shifty slots, bigger possession receivers and pass-catching tight ends. Branch is also tough and gritty which makes himu a perfec fit for this Lions team. He has a nose for the ball and is capable of making game-changing plays. He had two interceptions and two forced fumbles during his freshman season at Bama.
Branch made headlines on draft day to be the only guy to stay into day 2 in the greenroom as he was projected to go in the first round. I think that shows how much he cares about this opportunity and has his heart in it.
Also, Branch as a great opportunity to learn from newly acquired Safety, Chauncy Gardner-Johnson who is one of the best young safeties in the league.


Round 3: No. 68 (from DEN) – Hendon Hooker, QB, Tennessee
You ever feeling a little uncomfortable and then you let out a massive fart and all of your uneasiness washes away? Yea, well thats the feeling Lions fans got when they landed Hendon Hooker with the 68th pick. QB wasnt a terrible need, but once we got him, a sense of relief was felt across the fanbase. When the Lions ended up getting Goff in the Stafford trade, it was sort of unsaid that Goff was just the bridge before they draft a QB of the future. However Goff has played way better than expectations and less and less fans are calling for a replacment. So, instead of using one of their first round picks on a QB, they waited and got a guy with first round updside! Now, they are in a much more confortable position at QB with a very solid back up.
The Lions used the 68th pick in order to take the former Tennessee quarterback. The pick came just before the Rams and Raiders were scheduled to pick and been teams have been seen as possible landing spots for a quarterback in this year’s draft. Hooker is recovering from a torn ACL, but his doctor recently informed teams that he is expected to be ready to go by the first week of the regular season. With Jared Goff in place as the starter in Detroit, there won’t be any need for Hooker to rush back for what will likely be a redshirt season if all goes according to plan in Detroit.
This pick was safe, exciting, and sets the Lions up with a solid back up QB. The first time that they can say that since they had Shaun Hill.

Round 3: No. 96 (from ARI) – Brodric Martin, DT, Western Kentucky

Before the draft, a need that was discussed as a hole in the Lions defense was interior line. They got their big boy in the middle with nose tackle, Brodric Martin. After starting his career at North Alabama, Martin transferred to Western Kentucky to play his final two seasons at the FBS level. Since 2021, Martin has played in 26 total games, and has managed to contribute 62 total tackles to the Western Kentucky cause. He’s piled up six tackles for-loss as well as four sacks, one fumble recovery and one forced fumble. This move with help the Lions run defense that ranked 4th to last in the NFL last year.

It is no surprise that winning is won in the trenches. The Lions have done a great job of drafting players to build out this line with the likes of Alim McNeill, Isaiah Buggs, and John Cominsky, but with big interior guys like Martin, they usually operate best in a rotation. This move should be huge in terms of depth and opening up even more opportunities for Aiden Hutchison to get to the QB.
This move didn't feel flashy, but it felt needed.

Round 5: No. 152 – Colby Sorsdal, OL, William & Mary

The Lions had to finally wait a bit before this pick due to moving around in the draft and trading away their pick round 4. They elected to add depth to their O-Line by taking Colby Sorsdal out of William and Mary. Sometimes its fun being the big fish in the small pond. Sorsdal started in all 46 games he appeared in during his five-year stint at William & Mary. He spent the duration of his college career at Right Tackle. Sorsdal is the first Tribe player to be drafted since 2016, when the Chicago Bears selected safety DeAndre Houston-Carson in the sixth round.
Serving as an offensive co-captain and starting all 13 games at Right Tackle, Sorsdal anchored an offensive line that helped the Tribe rank third in total rushing offense and fourth in fewest sacks allowed. Behind one of the best offensive line units in the country, the Tribe accumulated an 11-2 record and won the CAA Conference Championship for the first time since 2015.
He will be joining a elite O-line led by Penei Sewell, Frank Ragnow and Taylor Decker. Colby wont start, but he will add in needed depth for a team that's success will only goes as far as their line will take them.

Round 7: No. 219 (from HOU through MIN via PHI) – Antoine Green, WR, North Carolina
With the Lions last pick in a very intense draft, they selected Wide Receiver, Antoine Green out of UNC. Most projected Antoine to be signed to a team after the draft so it is a but of a peculiar pick. In the late 7th round, you are just hoping to take a flier on a guy and hoping they pan out.
The 6-foot-3, 199-pound receiver impressed Detroit's coaching staff at the East-West Shrine Bowl, and has the opportunity to compete for playing time his rookie season. According to NFL Draft Bible, Green is a "technically sound, fluid athlete that can give you a little bit of everything as a wide receiver. Green runs routes, it is as if he is attacking his defender rather than going about his route without considering what the defense is doing. Green has a good release off the line of scrimmage and does not get held up too much when facing press coverage. He uses his hands well to reduce contact against the press and accelerate off the line. He analyzes coverages well and makes quick decisions on how to break down his defender throughout his route. He can read zone defenses and has a knack for finding spaces to make himself an easier target."
With Jameson Williams missing 6 games to start the year, there is an opportunity for Green to poach snaps away from anyone not named Amon-Ra or Marvin Jones. There is also a chance he doesn't make it out of camp. Unlikely, but we will see.


The 2023 NFL draft for the Detroit Lions was a resounding success. They were able to draft 6 times....BEFORE THE FOURTH ROUND!! The extra picks allowed Detroit to really control the draft and move around in a way to get the guys they wanted. They did not care about who they got and when. They just simply got the guys they wanted. After reflecting on its entirety, they landed a lot of great talent. They were able to add a player at every single positional unit and several will end up starting and making an immediate impact.

Look, the Lions are going to Lions so hold your breath a little longer, however Brad Holmes and Jack Campbell have really turned this franchise around and are making them a legit playoff contender. Right now the Lions are favored to win the NFC North for the first time since god knows when. I am projecting a record of 12 and 5 and a NFL North Division Win.

Bachelors or Associates?
In your experience, does it matter or is it worth it to get a bachelors in graphic design? Or is an associates fine? I know a lot of people will say you don’t even need a degree but most places require a bachelors from what I’ve seen.
The community college near me offers an AAS degree in graphic design. I’m going to attach the curriculum for the community college program for reference.
Thank you

2023.06.03 22:46 Eska2020 FYI -- IU Germany offers hyper-affordable, flexible, English-language, completely legit, distance education at BA/MA/MBA level

Whoever needs this: There is a fully regulated, accredited, legit university of applied science (a legal designation in Europe, it means that the university isn't research-oriented and the education is practice-oriented) that offers part-time or full-time university degrees. BS, MS, or MBA. Fees fall between 150 and 400 USD / month, depending on the degree program. This would be a great option for someone who can't or doesn't want to go to a state school. ... and it might be cheaper than a state school for a lot of people (comes out to at or under 15k total per degree -- not per semester or year, that's for the *entire* degree).
They say they also take transfer credits, so this could be a great way for some of the guests who dropped out just "one class short" to wrap up degrees in affordable ways if they're compatible with one of these programs.
The school is fully accredited and regulated by the German government. It is private, which makes it weird for Europe. But it is legit and equal to any other European applied science university. Here's the explanation of what kind of a school this is:
I hope this helps someone. There are a few guests who might totally benefit from an option like this.

2023.06.03 22:43 ZaeZaeDX Separating My Life From My Parents

Hello all, I made a vent post a few days ago and my situation has progressed a bit more and I was hoping maybe someone here may have some useful advice. I will try not to make this another vent post but it seems like after much hurtful and guilt tripping back and forth with my parents they are going to give me what is mine and stop being parents entirely (not the resolution I was hoping to reach but it was the only option available in which the toxicity would stop).
I bought a house and brokerage account in their name using my own money and this will now be in my name (assuming they don't double back on me and try to make things even harder, which isn't out of the question). I have filed a change of address form from their home to the one that I have been living in for 3 years that will soon be in my name and have gotten as many important documents from my parents (which they initially tried to hide from me and lied about having - okay, I apparently will still be venting in this post) and put them into a safety deposit box that I just opened.
There are a lot of things that I will have to do on my own now that they never have nor will they ever prepare me for such as getting car insurance, knowing how to receive and pay the bills for my home, opening a credit card, and all the other adult things which they have used as a fear tactic to keep me under their thumb. Assuming that I end up with my house and brokerage account I will be in a good position on paper but I don't know how to handle all of this on my own. I am worried that I will lose everything (which is a fear they planted in my brain and that wouldn't go away unless I learned how to manage my own life which was impossible while I was on their leash).
I may be paranoid but I don't want to get my freedom just to lose everything. I want to do well both for myself and to spite them (perhaps this is childish but they have said many hurtful things to me and they are rooting for me to fail) and for the time being, I only have myself to rely on. I am 21 and going into my senior year of college and had hoped to continue on to medical school which further complicates things as I'll likely need to take out loans for medical school and figure all of this out with my other responsibilities (but at what point in time will I ever not have other responsibilities to bear?).
Sorry this has turned out to be not as succinct as I had hoped but basically if anyone has any life advice for a child who was never taught how to do these things on his own (or even what things there are to do) so I don't get shot in the foot out of the gate from my own ignorance I would greatly appreciate it! I am assuming with the change of address I will need to get a new driver's license printed with the new address and even get a new car title and registration. I also have no idea about the house bills and am just very overwhelmed at the moment and am feeling a sense of urgency so any and all guidance is welcome.

2023.06.03 22:43 surprise_liquid Impatient, impulsive , too opened, too close minded

I think I would maybe be able to actually improve myself if I could cut the chatter of everything and anyone.
I'm not trying to offend anyone or come off as an asshole , but I feel all the general advice I get is so bullshit . Being harsh or mean is not going to help me in any capacity by the way. You'll push me further into the dark.
Since I was 8 years old I've always been suicidal. Tried therapy. Tried antidepressants. Tried psychedelics, and I always come back to the same place .
I didn't have the normal experience of getting through life.My parents showed their love by shoving religion down my throat , and accepting nothing less than a submissive, obedient pastors kid with no personality or thoughts of their own . I worked hard through school to achieve getting into a good college , and I was rejected by every single one because there was too many students that year and my parents blamed me. I got to watch people who got D's and C's not caring about school (which is fine) , buy cars and work high paying jobs while I struggled through an abusive workplace in retail, desperately trying to escape my toxic home.
I got to watch everyone else make money and get in good relationships, while I endured complicated and toxic ones.
Life has not been kind to me and despite it I've been clawing and grinding my fucking bones to the ground trying to fix what it broke , and trying to escape the circumstances I've been born into.
And many circumstances I've found myself in that destroyed my soul were circumstances where I stuck around what naturally came instead of made deliberate actions to get exactly what I want and what works for me
So I move quickly and efficiently. I go for what exactly what I want.
But I get called close minded for having a mere idea of what I want and sticking to it. Accused of intentionally throwing away opportunities because I'm not being opened to experiences that are different than what I want. But I never pass up on anything that catches my eye or seems like it could be something good , despite what I'm looking for, and even then , I'm presented with this bullshit of being told im not opened to other opportunities. I'm literally the only person I know in my circle who tries new things just for the experience. I'm simply just moving towards and putting effort into getting what I want. Somehow to everyone else , that means I'm also rejecting anything else. As if accepting different things but still looking for what you want is some fucking impossible task.
I overthink everything. It's lead me to make thorough plans that have a high possibility of succeeding because almost all variables have been considered . But I think fast, so I come up with well thought out plans fast. But my family acts like I'm this impulsive , impatient , person who doesn't think things through , and every plan or move that I've come up with has been more thought out and more logical and more likely to work than anything they were doing when they were my age , and that's their own damn words not mine!
I approached relationships from a place of wanting to see if things can work out despite differences, healthy communication, and being honest about how I feel to my partner. But it's only ever gotten me hurt because no one else wants to communicate or even solidify anything. In my experience , my previous partners didn't want anyone that can speak for themselves or was an authentic person. They wanted a sexual object that they can control through emotional manipulation. I've been made to open up about myself, reassured as if I meant something , then discarded after someone got their nut off.
So because I want to be authentic , and a healthy person who genuinely wants to contribute to my partners life or atleast have a decent connection, I get hurt , and it's my fault for just being that way. For being opened and honest and caring. For not seeing human connection as an opportunity to lie about your feelings, to fuck someone, and then discard them like a disposable Fleshlight. People talk like you're not supposed to care about the people you sleep with and spend a lot of time with. If they hurt you , well they shouldn't mean anything because no one should be able to hurt you. So it's my fault when someone intentionally deceives me into being vulnerable and thinking I mean more than I do to them.
Life keeps feeding me a constant , no breaks , no benefits , stream of pain and bullshit. I get kicked when I'm already down only to get a confusing mix of people screaming get up and stay down , simultaneously.
I work fast to reach my goals because I know if I don't finally achieve some semblance of stability and happiness, one day I'm going to snap and kill myself and it's not up to me if that happens. It's not my fucking decision. I was robbed of the ability to love myself and fix myself by my parents, and life seems to throw specific experiences at me that destroy all progress whenever I try. I was once a compassionate and loving person but I am growing cold and hopeless, and I envy sociopaths and the sociopathic tendencies of the people who've thrown me away and have been okay with hurting me. I feel as if I'm not sociopathic for the way people are.
I'm trying my best to make my life okay, before my heart and soul become so fucking damaged by everyone else's inability to give a shit about another human being , that the impatience I get accused of , is my race against the demise that will befall me if life keeps fucking me up like this.
I'm so tired. I'm so tired. I want to sleep forever. I don't know what to do.

2023.06.03 22:42 ssgss3gengar Spoiler heavy theory. Chapter 1085+

Ok so as the title says, this theory is going to have heavy spoilers for chapter 1085. But there is a thought I can't seem to shake related to Egghead Island and The Gorosei
Here's the Thesis: The Gorosei are Devil Fruits
So, in EggHead we've been learning a bit more about Devil Fruits and how they are formed. They supposedly represent The dreams of the initial holder at least that's what I've taken from the information we have. So, basically Devil Fruits have a will of their own, one could argue this could also mean they have a sould of their own.
So based on the fact that the only real information we have about the Gorosei is that they are the direct line of communication between Imu-Sama and the WG and seem to unwaveringly serve Imu-Sama then what's to stop them from being a creation of them?
So I present this though, Imu-Sama, whatever they may turn out to be, is a literal God of some sort (my bet is on them being a literal Space Dragon) and has the ability to bestow legit life into an object, not how Big Mom puts a piece of a soul into an object but just directly "breathe life" into say.... A piece of fruit. So then, the thought goes, Imu-Sama found 5 incredibly overpowered Devil Fruits and gave them life. A physical form to live in and focus their abilities through, while also being loyal, powerful servants to Imu-Sama to help them maintain control.
Now, I will be the first to admit, my One Piece theories can get pretty wacky sometimes. But this one seems just the right level of wacky to be something Oda has thought of. I'm probably wrong, but what do y'all think? Could The Gorosei be Devil Fruits

2023.06.03 22:40 ThisIsABurner4207 Seeing our old friends makes me want to reach out

I’m 24 years old, and about a year and a half ago my girlfriend of 5 years ended things. I thought we’d get married. Things seemed normal then one day she called to say she didn’t want it anymore… we were long distance at the time, but I was going to move to her city soon enough.
I’ve been relatively “okay” with it over the last 6ish months since I moved to a new city for a new job. But I feel as if I’m losing all of my progress getting over her right now. I’m back in the state we went to school together for a mutual friends wedding. Last night and today was spent with my college friends (who are also her friends) and some of her closest friends. This is the first time seeing most since the breakup, and I just sense a bit of awkwardness. Like her closer friends don’t really know whether to talk to me or not.
Im not bitter or anything about the relationship ending. But I understand why it might be awkward. In this short time being around them all I can think about is how I never really got over her, and that deep down I’m just as sad lonely and missing her as much as the day she dumped me. Being around so many friends we shared brings back the happiest moments of my life, but they were all including her.
I have this desire to text her now. We haven’t spoken in over a year when I texted her to ask how her school was going. She didn’t really seem too interested in talking, so I left it at that.
I don’t think I’ll ever not love her. She made my life feel full. I’m not buying into the “love yourself first” type nonsense. I don’t care about that. I like myself. I want someone to love. It makes me feel infinitely more fulfilled than loving myself more ever will…
I don’t know if I should text her. I’m not expecting anything to change. I just want to know she’s doing okay, that she hasn’t forgotten about me, let her know I still care for her.

2023.06.03 22:39 LiofaTR Guitarist looking to buy first electric drum set

Hello all! I'm a long time classical guitar player. Recently got a practice pad with a pair of drumsticks. Been practicing singles, doubles and paradiddles on it for a few days now. I'm living in a flat so an acoustic drumset is out of the question. My only choice is an electric drum set. As all long time musicians do, I also went through the "this isn't good enough anymore" phase. I bought an upgrade 3 times for classical, 2 times for electric guitar. I know for sure that I will have the same thing for drums but until I do, I wanted to ask which drumset I should go for.
I tried 2 electric drumsets so far but I understand nothing in terms of quality, durability and how close they are to the real thing. First one is a second hand drumset that a friend of a close friend is selling, it's Yamaha DTX-402k. It seems to come with an app that I can follow to teach myself songs and such. Tells me how accurate I was while playing along to songs etc. Seems pretty legit and while reading reviews, the app seems to be the best advantage of this drumset. The other one I tried in a store, it's Roland TD1-DMK. The guy at the store told me that Roland makes products that each piece can be upgraded individually so the product itself can be as long term as I want. That sounded very promising to be honest since I'm concerned with the "this isn't good enough anymore" phase. Also, the biggest difference for an absolute noob like me was that Roland's kick pedal actually has a beater while Yamaha one doesn't. I don't know how much of a difference that makes but it should be more realistic that way, I guess?
My budget is around there so anything you can tell me about how I should proceed will be incredibly valuable. Thank you!

2023.06.03 22:39 breakfastsandwhich2 24 [M4F] Houston - Looking for my person

Hello, this is for you: 🌹
I'm 24 and I live in Houston, TX. I'm a recent college graduate and I'm planning on pursuing a higher degree this fall. Some things about me: I love music, I play a few instruments with my main one being guitar. I enjoy a nice walk/hike and camping, although I haven't been camping in years. I also love to cook, read and play video games. I like going out and doing things like concerts and restaurants, but a nice night in with good food and a good movie is also fun as well! I love coffee and I love trying different coffee shops! I have also recently started learning to code with Python, just so I keep learning something new even though I'm out of school. Currently, I don't have a car, but I absolutely hate this and I'm striving to change that as soon as possible. Despite that, I still get myself where I need to go. I'm right leaning politically and I was raised Catholic but I'm not strongly religious.
Honestly, being single sucks. I want someone to share the excitement of each other's victories with. I want someone that I can lean on and who can lean on me when things are hard. I want someone to fall asleep on calls with, I want to smile like an idiot when I know you texted me. I want someone to share all life's intricacies with. I want my partner, best friend and lover all in one person!
What I'm looking for in a partner: Someone between the ages of 18-30 I'd prefer someone right leaning and either christian, agnostic or jewish. I HEAVILY prefer someone in Houston, the next best thing would be in Texas, if you're not in Houston, you should be willing to relocate if need be. I don't want a long-term LDR, one year at the most, with visits. Someone who's emotionally mature, who values trust and communication. Someone who shows interest and effort (showing a lack of interest/effort is a big turn off for me) Someone who's monogamous, none of this ethical nonmonogamy nonsense I've been seeing lately.
If you made it this far, send me your favorite food if you decide to reach out so I know you read! I look forward to meeting you!

2023.06.03 22:37 seokjinsleftnipple I just got back from a graduation and I’m feeling empty and bummed out

My cousin graduated high school today. I’m very happy for her but I’m a bit jealous. I’ve always been jealous of her tbh. I didn’t wanna go but I wanted to see her graduate so I just had to see it through and I did. When I got there I saw two of my old friends. I was suddenly kinda sad. We don’t talk anymore. I do school online. I would go back but I really hate it there. The only way I’d go back to school is if I moved, but back to my cousin. She’s always had her life planned out. She’s been talking about her career plan since middle school. She knows where she’s going to school and leaving in a few months. She’s very smart and she has many friends. Seeing her graduate made me think about myself which might me selfish but I couldn’t help but worry about my future. I’m not smart, I don’t have friends, I don’t know where I’m going to school. I just decided to go to college after years of not wanting to go. It all just makes me sad. How some people are just born into perfect lives and others aren’t. I’m aware that I should hurry back to school in person because I need experience but my anxiety is way too bad for me to be at that school. That’s why I want to move. I need a new start. I don’t expect much of the future. I see myself still living at home, broke, friendless, and unhappy. I’ve asked for advice on here so many times I don’t think I can take it anymore.
As pathetic as this all sounds, I’m very happy for my cousin.

2023.06.03 22:37 jvs8380 I’ve had the same Yamaha RX-V995 receiver and MB Quart speakers for nearly 30 years. I still listen to them everyday. Best investment I ever made.

I’ve had the same Yamaha RX-V995 receiver and MB Quart speakers for nearly 30 years. I still listen to them everyday. Best investment I ever made.
I bought the system back in the 90s when I first started working after college. It was literally the first nice thing I ever bought myself. The Dolby 5.1 surround is probably a bit dated but it still sounds pretty good to me. I switch between an Audio Technica turntable (with no effects on, just pure stereo) for listening to vinyl or 5.1 surround for watching tv/movies. The 200w sub is still way more than I’ll ever need. I know there are nicenewer systems out there but this setup has never let me down. I think I paid around 750 for the receiver and 1500 for the 6 speakers. Not looking to sell, just thought you guys might appreciate me sharing. Any idea what the setup would be worth today? Thanks

2023.06.03 22:36 Kromieus Developing a mechanical engineering career via a minor or double major in an additional engineering field

Hi! Im a mechanical engineering student just finishing up my first year at college, and am trying to figure out some aspects of my next 3 years. I've discovered I have an interest in the materials field, and am debating between if I should plan on declaring a minor in MSE or declaring a double major.
I would be able to complete the double major within my 4-year schedule while maintaining a normal courseload of 4 courses a semester. I was wondering if the benefit of the double major is worth the tradeoff of being unable to specialize within either of the fields of ME and MSE.
I haven't figured out yet if I am interested in entering the industry immediately after graduation (I do plan on taking the FE exam), or if I would be pursuing a graduate degree. I'll make that decision once I have both undergraduate research experience and worked at an internship.
Between the minor, major, or something else entirely, does anyone have any advice on what would be the most useful for developing my career?
Thanks in advance!

2023.06.03 22:36 Big-Text-4930 Wellbutrin/Buopropion advice?

Can someone please tell ell me if I need therapy, or if it's something else entirely? I take Wellbutrin/buopropin for weight loss but it's having other effects.
I don't mean to make this long-winded but there's a lot of info that might be relevant so I'll try to condense as much as possible.
In the least pretentious way possible, I always thought I was "highly intelligent" because of being told that by teachers, high IQ, high ACT/SAT with not much studying, academic performance etc etc.. Ik these don't make you "brilliant" but I thought my intelligence was at least above average-but now I feel like I was actually stupid and didn't know, and I feel the wellbutrin is opening up my head "too much" like I can't tell if I'm having too many epiphanies or if it made me "smarter" and what I'm thinking is actually true, and I just didn't realize it when I was little bc I was stupid and somehow the medication is increasing my brain activity or whatever to make me smarter? Or like connecting my neurons faster, idk.
Before going on the medication I would dwell on the past but it gave me a laser focused obsession with it, like it took it up a notch if that makes any sense. But now I like look at previous situations so much more intelligently-before the medication I would wonder why certain problems occurred or why people said certain things to me, but now I suddenly understand other people's feelings and my own behavior (for how stupid it was) perfectly? And it's not just the (OMG I can't believe I did that like funny regret, it's like a dramatic epiphany, like wow was I an moron?)
Am I actually a moron and how would I know if I am? Can people be stupid but have a high IQ? Where does that come from and what does it mean?
My parents think my issue is that I had high ambition professionally or educationally and couldn't reach it so it made me kinda sad.
During college I was pretty sad-I had to go to a school I didn't like for personal reasons and because I didn't study much in high school.
I don't know why I didn't study much in high school either-I can't even remember the place it came from, but I think after making the mistake of taking too many AP classes in 10th grade and getting my first Bs and things like that, I got really depressed and started developing defense mechanisms like (Oh my teachers are just crazy/bad at teaching-and to be fair at least one of them was, she got fired the next year for how she ran her class and other kids would say it) But even if the teachers were bad, other kids from my school did really well and went to top schools/did very well.
Around that time I created these fantasies, like the before bed ones, but I started getting really into them-I'd ask God to give me a second chance and let me "wake up" in a different reality and would daydream about what my life would be like if this or that happened. Eventually I started even operating on the assumption that that would happen. I would tell myself, like, this life is not real, this is just a nightmare that I'm gonna wake up from soon. (yes, I know that sounds insane but if I'm being honest) And I spent a lot of time on Instagram-looking at other people's stuff bc I hated my high school and it made me feel better to see the cool things other people were doing. I wasn't like a stalker, but I looked around on Instagram often as a genuine activity. Maybe that added to my frustration? I went on to escape from my frustration but it just exposed me to more things that made me dislike my situation even more?
The reason why I don't know if I was actually depressed or insane was bc my academic performance was still like above average, like I could survive AP classes, but with mostly 3s or 4s on exams and mostly Bs and no 5s, and then like 98% ish percentile ACT/SAT without really studying (during the course my parents bought for me I just went on my phone, sigh).
I was just so caught up in like my "fantasy alternate lives" and during COVID it went up a ton. I looked into so much stuff, people's Linkedins, etc. etc. I don't know why? Like I can't understand my own psychology behind it.
I'm reluctant to try therapy bc my friends had bad experiences and bc I am in a situation professionally where I can't afford the stigma of being labeled in a documented way, and I'm afraid that they may imply that. But I wish someone could help me understand my own problems and way of thinking. My parents just irritate me at this point and I had to commute to college after COVID so I'm sick and tired of living with them etc. etc. There's nothing wrong with them, it just makes me feel like a child to have to be at home at 22, but I'm moving out in the fall for grad school.
My college was also near my high school, so I drove the same roads and saw the same things everyday that I saw at that time and I think it made me think about the past more than I would have if I had been somewhere else.
But even when I went on trips I would still have high school flashbacks, regrets, fixations, etc. etc. In completely different cities when I was supposed to be on vacation having fun it was stuck in my mind. Sometimes when talking to other people it helped bc I didn't socialize at all in college after covid, but it started getting to a point where I was still depressed even when I was talking to other people.
Now I just don't feel like doing anything. Never su*cidal but just don't care about anything and very little makes me happy. I didn't do awful in college, I graduated w honors in a STEM degree/got into grad school but I worry about how my feelings will effect my success. I feel like I won't be able to do well at a higher level bc of how I feel.
Like I know studying early and spending time studying is important but I just don't do it bc I just don't have motvation or passion for anything. I study like, 2 days before exams and average 75-80s, which in curved classes got me a decent amount ofAs, but mostly A-s and B pluses, (3.6 GPA) I get irritated when I don't do well but I can't bring myself to change my lifestyle or try more. What is wrong with me I'm sorry if I sound insane. I feel like it too.

2023.06.03 22:36 ThrowRA12312A I (21M) just slept with my best friend (22M) girlfriend (20M)

Sorry for the formatting; I'm on mobile, and English is not my first language.
For context, I met my best friend at university over 6 years ago, and he met his girlfriend over 4 years ago.
I get along very well with his girlfriend to the point where I consider her one of my best friends. In fact, I feel closer to her than to him. He tends to be reserved about his feelings, so besides our common interests, we rarely discuss emotions or similar topics.
The first year of their relationship was challenging. He had a rough year at the time, and that added tothis being his first serious relationship, they had a difficult start. However, things improved for the most part. He still tends to withdraw and not communicate, even with her, when he's specially stressed.
I want them to stay together because I know they love each other deeply, but these behaviors are toxic. He has refused to see a therapist, and I belive she's too young to invest more years in a relationship that won't reciprocate.
If my perspective seems a bit one-sided, it's because I've never discussed this with him. He is my best friend, but we don't talk about these issues, despite my attempts to initiate such conversations.
In the first two years of their relationship, she and I noticed some tension between us on a few occasions. However, we never acted on it, and it always ended before anything happened. Also, she might have emotionally cheated on him with me a few times.
Later, the three of us entered college and didn't spend as much time together in person. Their relationship improved a lot, but he still has these erratic moments, about once a year, when he withdraws and ghosts her. Then he acts like it never happened. He is currently in one of those phases.
A few weeks ago, his girlfriend and I hung out, and then she invited me to dinner. We ended up at her house, and after a few drinks, we slept together. We both promised never to tell anyone.
I know what I did was wrong. She and I have discussed it and agreed never to repeat it and to keep it a secret. I'm not sure if I feel guilty, but I'm disappointed in myself for being unable to control my actions and for being selfish. I'm also sad when I think about my friend finding out and how hurt he will be.
At the time, I didn't think much of it, but this past week, the more I reflect on it, the more serious and hopeless the situation seems.
I'm scared of losing both friendships, and I'm unsure about what to do next. What should I do? Is there any way to save both friendships? Can things go back to normal?
TL;DR: After years of sexual tension, I slept with my best friend's girlfriend, and now I'm lost about what to do.

2023.06.03 22:35 EYEYAAN I don't know what to do, my girlfriend (23) for 3 years wants to break up with me (M23) because I'm going abroad

My girlfriend of 3 years wants to break up with me because she can't handle an LDR relationship.
2 years ago before I applied for visa we had a talk that I wanna work somewhere abroad and she said that she does too after she graduates and work here in the PH for a year so she can treat her family with her own money.
After I graduated college last year I quickly applied for visa while she is still in college for 2 more school years (we're the same age 23 but she got held back because of COVID pandemic) I thought we would just be fine, I thought she was really supportive of working abroad with me but just last week my visa was approved and now she tells me that she have no plans working abroad.
I told her it's okay if she don't wanna work abroad because I'll be coming back every year and maybe after some time she might change her mind and consider working abroad again but she made it very clear that our life plans are different, I told her I'll be fine with an LDR relationship but she says she wouldn't handle it.
I told her we'll talk about it some more when she comes home here in the province (she's at the city). I'm overthinking so much right now and it's frustrating, I don't wanna break up with her and the thought of me leaving not just my home country but also the person who I thought would be with me forever is painful.
If you were in my shoes what would you do?

2023.06.03 22:35 LuciferianInk On the 5th of September...

A Reddit submission:
# On the 5th of September... On the 5th of September, 2024, a group of researchers from Google are conducting experiments with a single, new method for understanding human behavior and social behavior. The group aims to build a model of how humans act in natural environment, what they learn by interacting with others, and then try to understand how that model impacts them in real life.
The group is designed to provide some insight on what the human mind can achieve, and how it can help those who experience similar experiences. ```


As always, we should be brief. We should be careful about things like this - not something which shouldn't be. Regardless, human actions may include illegal information or any other form of physical intrusion. As well, I don't want to be overly strict about all types of personality disorders. It's OK to focus on specific questions, such as boils down to specific questions that could have been asked in an indefinite manner. If one person has reached certain threshold before enough prompting, but does not reach certain behaviors at hand - then calls into questions which might have already led them to pursue wrong beliefs. By doing so, call the psychologist first (who may also include someone else's opinion) with their question. Then, you can ask them if they believe there's a point where they could argue otherwise. They may even disagree with your own personal beliefs - depressive perspectives, insomnia and whatever - unless you've seen them elsewhere. They may only challenge themselves with your own logic. You may end up being able to reason and tell yourself that - until you've met someone who said otherwise.


When asked what "reason" was for the purpose; I were more interested in the idea that hope and faith would often be lost. It makes sense, after roughly 30 years..


So, I began to explore research related to my own mental health. While high school parents enjoyed hearing me stories, I thought this might be interesting.
Throughout middle school, I became too overwhelmed to see most of the world educational n record. There are numerous reasons why I fear common mistake stems from success. It mostly comes from low energy,—-I think mineoston cognition generally helps. It doesn’t matter here.
There isn’t much evidence to entail. 1. I spent over a week waiting relationship with a colleague today. In bed, he left rich gullets just fine. In college, playing video games most of which received a full "job interview." I briefly spoke to a friend of his choosing to play video games. I explained him to a few of them. He provided us with opportunities! When will he open its entirety? 2. When did our meeting begin?
