A little bit of a rant about grad school…

2021.12.09 07:06 alargerballofanxiety A little bit of a rant about grad school…

Hello all,
I don’t often post but I needed a space where I could just talk about my course currently, and maybe get some advice from people who have been here and seen it all before!
I started my Masters course in September and in all honestly it’s been very disappointing, the course was so promising and very enticing - it has a major module devoted to employability, with a lot of links to our sector who are willing to take us on for internships and such so we have at least 6 months if relevant work experience. All of this seemed great, I loved my undergrad experience, and I figured that even changing uni, I would love to continue with the work that I had been doing previously.
But, in all honesty, the course feels like a mess. Deadlines change at will. Essay titles are rarely reviewed by other members of staff for clarity. In one such case the questions rarely correspond well with the taught components - and that’s the core module. Staff have a tendency to make snide comments to the class at large, one such lecturer does so frequently when no one is able to answer her questions, but the questions are often hidden within her long, rambling explanations. There’s little in the way of guidance for coursework. For example, presenters have been penalised for having 20 minute presentations, which were advised, but praised for presentations of 40 minutes or more.
That’s not to say I am complaining because I am doing badly, I am doing well, perhaps not brilliantly but achieving a solid merit in all courseworks, barring one which I will admit was my fault entirely for failing to submit the correct document. A silly mistake that I am very unhappy about, but as it’s not worth a great deal I’ve simply focused on doing better in the larger coursework.
My question is: is this normal?
I know all masters are a step up and less scheduled than undergrad but this feels excessive. Perhaps it’s just me? As I came from a different university , maybe I’m just not as aware as the others about the way things are done around here? I’ve met others, though admittedly I have found it hard to make close friends when almost everyone has friend groups from their undergrad, and this seems to be normal for them.
Sorry for the long text, and thank you for reading if you got this far!

I would like a tattoo that has the quote "melt your headaches, call it home", around or in any shape or object that comes to mind. Personally, what pops up in my head are drawings of earth, a city skyline, or a cup of tea.

2021.12.09 07:06 No-Carpenter727 Me (27M) needs advice on rekindling romance with a friend (22F), three years after dating

Fellow redditors,
Me (27M) and her (22F) have a 3-ish year old history together, let me explain.
September 2018 I met her on a birthday of a mutual friend. Our mutual friend connected us and we started dating (excessively). Three weeks prior to meeting me, she had ended her first relationship, a 2.5 year relationship with a guy who, according to her, didn't treat her that well. I knew that I had to be careful with attaching myself to her, because I was aware of the 'rebounding' possibility.
We both lived (and still live) with our parents, so our dates would be in my car, spending on average 5 evenings a week together. At the time I felt like this was too much interaction, but I told myself it felt good and I didn't want to believe it was too much (or act upon it).
Up to meeting her I hadn't been in any serious relationship yet and I didn't have any experience working towards a relationship or dating in a healthy way, I just did what felt right. In hindsight, I've learned a lot from the experience I'm writing about right now. For example, I now know I have a ENFJ / Protagonist personality and I tend to either fall in love hard, or not fall in love at all. I fell in love with her hard, probably because she was open to it in the first 3 months (maybe because of wanting distraction / rebound feelings) and I'm the type of person who wants to give 110% of their love and (at least then) had trouble tempering my love-output towards her (even though she acted the same way until it ended).
The week before christmas 2018, I felt an unbalance entering our contact and around christmas we met up and she told me it was too soon, she wasn't ready and she thought I was the sweetest guy but that it wouldn't work right now. I was shocked, because for me it was like thunder in a clear sky. I was emotionally wrecked.
Me, being very unexperienced in relationships, dating and love, stayed in contact and in a desperate mind kept meeting up with her and proposed her to try friend with benefits. Again in hindsight, I only hurt myself more and probably gave her an even more needy image of me. After two months of contact after the 'break-up' and a LOT of desperately watching dating/relationship/break-up videos and posts on reddit I decided it would be the best for me to try the No Contact Rule.
I thought it would make her come back to me, or at least let her know I could move on. I told her when meeting up, but the way I told her, it felt too me like I gave her the feeling I was so in love with her I couldn't bear staying in contact (not moving on because of an abundance mindset, but to save myself from any more harmful emotional heartbreak feelings).
No contact was going on for exactly 2 weeks and her birthday came up (16th of february). I was still going with the no contact rule and hadn't congratulated her on her birthday either, because I thought that would break the rule. That night, I was at a friends' place and 4am I discovered a missed call from her. I called back 15 minutes later and she was drunk, going from the city to her parents' house. I asked her why she had called and she told me she would tell me the next morning.
The next morning came and during the day she whatsapped me and apoligized for calling me that night and she also replied that she didn't remember why she called me. I was confused by this and went to tell my mutual friend (who connected us) about the situation. She thought it was strange behaviour too and had a meeting with her to ask why she acted this way and strung my feelings along by calling me drunk on her birthday while she knew I wanted no contact. She told her she didn't know why, but also that her previous relationship was too fresh and she wanted to stay single and look around a little more. After I heard this from our mutual friend I decided I was going to keep no contact and try to move on.
In the next year there was one occasion in the summer where I would go on a boat on a hot summer day with a group of friends and our mutual friend asked me if I was okay with her coming with my mutual friend. At this point I was definitely okay with it, but the point was I still had feelings for her (even though no contact had been going for at least 6 months by then, I felt she was my soulmate at the time, maybe because she broke up in the middle of our honeymoon phase).
The day went by fine, and we (the group) ended op at the house of a friend she was looking after. During the night everybody left and somehow I stayed (in the hope of a special moment or something) and looking back I can see/imagine myself acting needy that night hoping for some sign or affection. When I eventually left, I felt horrible, like I had spent 6 months of no contact to throw it all away with such a stupid needy action.
Some months passed and when the winther of 2019 came around she, our mutual friend and her gf had a couple of nights as friends when we watched movies together but nothing special (even though I still deep inside hoped for a sign of her towards me).
During 2020 we remained in contact as friends, I was over her in the sense that I didn't fantasize/think of her and I could honestly say that I had moved on at that time. We used to meet up once every 2 months or so, had a great fun night in the car, drove around, laughed and had a good time (just friends).
However, I always, and still to this day, am convinced that she is a perfect match for me (at least for me) but that I acted unfortunate (needy, too-loving) during our short time together plus the timing for her wasn't right (3 weeks out of 2.5 year first relationship), her being young (19 at the time). She probably wanted to be single, have fun, enjoy her freedom after a 2.5 year relationship and I thought I met the girl of my dreams and was realy to fully love her and get into a settling relationship. She is everything I look for in a girl and based on the honeymoon phase we had I had the impression it was mutual.
Now yesterday I met up with her for the first time since maybe half a year and we had a really, really great time. We laughed, I saw her looking at me a certain way sometimes, it felt natural and good. She even had the perfume on I gave her 3 years ago! On the way to home after I dropped her off, I could only think about how to initiate something romantic again, or at least pulse how she feels about romance. On the other hand I don't want to be the 'always available, clingy' guy the relationship / break-up videos warned me about.
I'm torn between doing what I feel is best (because that didn't end up well for me in romance, going 110% on the love-throttle etc) and following someone else's advice (which might also not work out as I want to). One thing I do know, is that I dearly want to have another honest chance with her.
I learned a LOT from my my short time with her, because it was my first real serious short dating/relationship period (even though we didn't officialy have a relationship) and I learned to have balance and let the girl do the pacing working towards a relationship. I see my mistakes I made and the situation back then and I would like to have some reflection on my experiences or advice on how to best approach this situation.
If you are reading this, thanks so much for reading the whole story.
TL;DR
Me (27M) and her (22F) met september 2018 on a birthday of a mutual friend. Three weeks prior to meeting me, her first relationship of 2.5 years had ended. I knew that there was a posibility of a rebound, but it felt good so I went along. We met up at least 5 times a week, in my car and had the greatest time. I told myself it was too much, but I didn't want to listen to myself. I hadn't been in a serious relationship yet and next to that I am an ENFJ / Protagonist personality.
I'm the type of person who want to give 110% love from the start. This, in combination with her fresh ended relationship resulted in her cutting our being together off after 3 months.
I stayed in touch with her for two months, but after watching a lot of video's on dating/break-up etc I told her I wanted no contact (and in my mind I projected it as if I was so heartbroken I couldn't stay in touch with her because of my hurting). After two weeks of no contact I received a missed call in the night, I called back and she was drunk, she would explain why she called the next morning. The next morning she let me know she didn't remember why she called me. Our mutual friend who connected us asked her why she called me when I wanted no contact and also said her she couldn't remember but also that her previous relationship was too fresh and she wanted to be single and look around.
In the next year we met up through a mutual friend group once, it was fun and we ended up together at her friends place, everybody else had gone. I remember hoping for something and that way acting needy. I felt horrible leaving eventually, because I felt like I had thrown 6 months of no contact away for nothing. During 2020 we remained meeting up every month or two as friends, and I could honestly say my feelings for her were at an all time low and weren't bothering me.
Now yesterday I met up with her for the first time since maybe half a year and we had a really, really great time. On the way to home after I dropped her off, I could only think about how to initiate something romantic again, or at least pulse how she feels about romance. On the other hand I don't want to be the 'always available, clingy' guy the relationship / break-up videos warned me about. However, I always, and still to this day, am convinced that she is a perfect match for me.
I'm torn between doing what I feel is best (because that didn't end up well for me in romance, going 110% on the love-throttle etc) and following someone else's advice (which might also not work out as I want to).

2021.12.09 07:06 Dispersey29 [California] Why did I get paid for this soecific week if I made too much money?

I am need of clarification in regards to why I was paid 303 dollars for one of my past certification weeks (was during August).
I'm on partial UI. I worked 12ish hours that week, and earned 19 dollars each hour. Also, I was sick one day and put that info in the certification form (i.e. I put a "1" in the box that asked how many days I was unable to work.)
My weekly benefit amount was 182. Based on my current knowledge, the calculation for that weeks benefit amount should be (238.38) - [(238.38) x 0.25)] = 178.67.
182 - 178.67 = 3 dollars wba
3 dollars wba + 300 (free pandemic money) =303. BUT, why was money NOT deducted for the one day I was sick? I thought they deduct for that. They have in my past certifications, to my knowledge.

2021.12.09 07:06 iliketolickthebuttah Did Ultra Street Fighter 4 have a limited release on PS4/XB1?

I checked Gamestop and they're sold out of it
Ebay doesn't even have any listings for the ps4 version.
I already own the game on ps3 via SSF4 but I was curious.
Does anybody know if it's rare or had a limited release or??

2021.12.09 07:06 808gecko808 I came home really drunk last night and my wife wasn’t happy at all. “How much have you had to drink?” she asked sternly, staring at me. “Nothing” I slurred. “Look at me!” she shouted. “It’s either me or the pub, which one is it?”

I paused for a second while I thought and mumbled, “It’s you. I can tell by the voice.”

2021.12.09 07:06 9schoolboy DH Finds - a general mix

Zimmermann Dress – Zimmy does it again. Zimmermann Dress – Gorgeous. Jimmy Choo Sandals – I'd prefer to buy from Fisherman, but these don't look too bad. Celine Sunglasses – Bought these and wear them religiously. Crap case, but sunglasses are quality. Lululemon Align Pants – I don't even work out or wear activewear and I still want these. Lululemon Jacket – Good for school runs, dog walking or ACTUAL exercise (ahem cough me)... Lululemon Shorts – Nice for warmer days. Dior Saddle Bag – This bag has blown up on TikTok and for the price, I can see why. Goyard Pouch – I have this in red and it's beautiful. Personally, I don't think it's 1:1 but equally, I really don't think anyone would know and I am fussy. I use mine to hold sanitary items, painkillers etc. Chanel Cardholder – Ok, this is budget but boujee. Bought it on a whim last year and I use it every day. No one bats an eyelid. My friend has the auth version and she says she wishes she had mine for the sake of $ and quality. Burberry Cashmere Scarf – I owned several of the auth and honestly, I see no difference between the auth and this.
