2023.05.30 12:48 INSDAhmedabad300 An Overview of Interior Design Courses Which Will Help You To Take The Right Decision

In order to make a building's interior a welcome, safe, and functional space for people who use it, interior design combines art with science. Interior designers use their creativity and technical skills to plan, design, and oversee the execution of interior projects. They'll work with the client to get a feel for their needs and objectives, so they can draw on their experience of space planning, color theory, furniture selection or whatever else is involved when designing spaces that are both functional and beautiful.
Career Outlook
The career outlook for interior designers is positive. The Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that from 2020 to 2030, employment in the Interior Design Industry is projected to increase by 13 % as against an average for all professions. The primary driver of this rise is anticipated to be an increase in demand for interior design services across a range of contexts, including homes, businesses, and healthcare facilities.
Education and Training Requirements
For people who desire to become interior designers, a variety of training packages are available. The most common type of program is a bachelor's degree in interior design. However, some interior designers choose to earn a MBA in interior designing.
In addition to formal education, interior designers also need to have a strong portfolio of their work. This portfolio should showcase their design skills and their ability to create functional and beautiful spaces.
Interior design is a vast discipline that includes many different specializations, such as:
What to expect in an interior design course
An interior design course will typically cover the following topics:
Design principles and elements: This will include topics such as line, shape, form, color, texture, and space.
Space planning: This will cover how to use space effectively in a variety of rooms.
Materials: Different types of material and how they are to be used in designing interiors will also be covered during the course.
Lighting: This will give an insight into the significance of lighting in interior designs, and how to select appropriate lighting for different spaces.
Furniture: This will discuss different types of furniture and how to choose the right furniture for different spaces.
Accessories: This will discuss different types of accessories and how to use them to add personality to a space.
Budgeting: This will discuss how to create a budget for an interior design project, and how to stick to that budget.
Contracting: It will discuss the process of contracting out, as well as what to check for in a contractor.
Project management: This will discuss how to manage an interior design project from start to finish.
In addition to these core topics, interior design courses may also cover specialized topics such as:
Sustainable design: This will cover how to design interiors that are environmentally friendly.
Universal design: This will cover how to design interiors that are accessible to people of all abilities.
Emotional design: This will cover how to design interiors that evoke certain emotions in the user.
Salary and job outlook
The median annual salary for interior designers was $58,360. The job outlook for interior designers is projected to grow 13 percent from 2020 to 2030, faster than the average for all occupations. This increase will probably be fueled by a rise in demand for interior design services across a number of sectors, including residential, commercial, and hospitality.
How to choose an interior design course
When selecting an interior design study programs, the following criteria should be considered:
Accreditation: Verify if the programs has received accreditation from a reputable accrediting agency.
Curriculum: Check to see if the content in your course of study pertains to you.
Faculty: Make sure the program has qualified and experienced faculty.
Location: Make sure the program is located in a convenient location for you.
Cost: Make sure the program is affordable for you.
You have the chance to use technology and your creativity in the interior design industry to change lives both at home and throughout the globe. Numerous degree programs are available to aid in your entry into the interior design industry if you're interested in working in this field.

2023.05.30 12:47 Wide-Sound-9930 What are my chances of getting a sponsor for residency in the USA?

have wanted to go to the usa since i was a teenager, i initially wanted to go to university there but i didnt have 2 pennies to rub together and i was not great in school either so i ended up not doing it. Now i am in the army and i go to university part time studying mechanical engineering, the thing is the university i go to is not exactly "world renowned " or even one of the best in my country, to say the truth it is a pretty shitty one but its the only one close to where im located, hopefully at the end of my 6 year contract with the army i will have graduated with a bachelor degree but i know there is no chance i will get sponsored with just that. I do have another ace up my sleeve though since i have been saving considerable amounts of money and investing and at this rate i can expect to finish my army career with the equivalent to almost 70.000 usd in savings. Initially i was planning to use this for flight school but then i learned pilots dont get sponsored often either, i know this amount of money is insufficient to go get a masters degree in the usa but i can probably get a loan for that, the problem is i have a hard time believing any reputable school will accept me given i have taken my bachelor in a "sub par" school, im sure some schools will be happy to just take my money and accept me but i will i be able to be sponsored with a masters degree from most likely a "sub par" school as well?
At this point im wondering if it isnt just better to get a visa for flight school in USA and just stay there until i eventually find someone to marry, and even if it goes wrong i will still have the pilot license to get a job in another country.
What do you think is my best chance to sucessfully immigrate to the usa in this situation?

2023.05.30 12:47 LigmaWhatAhahYouSaid [SPOILERS] will be back in 10.20

I made this post a while back but I don't think enough people saw it and now we have confirmation: Zhang Wei is going to appear in episode 10.20 which is conveniently titled "Arthur Hudson (No. 2)", probably as a flashback. I've been suspecting this would be the case for a while now. It now seems very likely that Arthur (or someone around him) had something going on with Wujing / Zhang Wei. Was I the only one who found it weird when Senator Dorf suddenly changed his mind and rushed into Arthur's office to tell him he was going to help him looking for answers regarding the Taskforce?
Zhang Wei was Wujing's right hand, who died in the same episode Wujing died, shot in the head by Reddington.

2023.05.30 12:43 Momofloss About Kaeya hangout (contains possible spoilers for the hangout)

This post WILL contain the latest spoilers that came out about his hangout so fair warning to do not read if you don't want to be spoiled.
Now with that out of the way, please tell me I am not the only one slightly upset about the way his quest seem to be taking a turn lol.
First his birthday was used to promote TCG.
Then, he lost to Timmie in the current event and barely was in it even (yes, I am salty for that).
And with the latest leaks I saw saying, that his hangout will have future playable character introduction and a fontaine NPC I can't help but feel salty that Hoyo is using him again to promote something else lol.
I think people are fairly excited for Fontaine already I much more would have preferred his hangout to have already existing mondstadt character interactions or any of the other nations that already came out, instead of bringing in a new character and npc npc. Do that for the overall event of the new region, like it always was used.
And sure I might be overreacting but I do not remember any of the previous hangouts bringing in a not yet released character, from a different region. If it would be interaction between already existing ones, I don't mind. But why use Kaeya AGAIN to promote a new charactenew game mode/event T-T
I just want to see pure Kaeya content pls mihoyo

2023.05.30 12:43 greece666 Discussion of "Titane" (2021)

“Titane” not only depicts unsettling and visceral imagery, filled with engine oil and blood, but it also defies any attempt to neatly classify or describe it. It immerses viewers in a chaotic blend of violence, automobile culture, and (rather unexpectedly) compassion. It intertwines elements of body horror, evoking a sense of revulsion towards the human body, with a narrative that explores family dynamics. Moreover, it cleverly incorporates comedic elements that subtly highlight the uneasiness that arises from being confined within our vulnerable and flawed physical bodies. “Titane” creates an experience that transcends the boundaries of traditional cinema, inviting audiences into a realm of unparalleled peculiarity.
The film won the prestigious Palme d'Or, making director Julia Ducournau only the second female director in the festival's history to receive it (Jane Campion is the only other woman to have won before [“The Piano”] and she actually shared the award with Chen Kaige [“Farewell my Concubine”]). Additionally, the film garnered a nomination for the Queer Palme, highlighting its exploration of LGBTQ+ themes. Further acclaim followed as "Titane" secured the Midnight Madness Award at the Toronto Film Festival, as recognition to its unconventional storytelling. At the French César Awards, "Titane" received four nominations, including Best Director for Julia Ducournau and Most Promising Actress for Agathe Rousselle. Furthermore, Julia Ducournau's directorial prowess was acknowledged at the British Academy Film Awards, where she received a nomination for Best Director. At the Magritte Awards, Belgium's own film awards, "Titane" received five nominations and won two awards, including the Best Foreign Film accolade. Finally, “Titane” was selected as the French entry for the Best International Feature Film category at the 94th Academy Awards but it wasn’t shortlisted.
attention: from this point forward the text contains spoilers
The central character, Alexia (portrayed by Agathe Roussell), embodies a beautiful but cold young woman that carries a titanium plate in her head, a lasting reminder of a childhood car accident. Alexia's unusual fixation on cars aligns conveniently with her profession as a stripper who sensually engages with vehicles at motor shows.
When confronted by an obsessive and intrusive fan, Alexia stabs him in the ear using her metal hairpin (possibly a reference to the counter-cultural classic “The Anarchist Cookbook”?). Afterwards, she indulges in a peculiar carnal celebration by engaging in intimate acts with a car - not merely inside the car but quite literally with it, a fascinating scene that drew comparisons to Cronenberg’s “Crash”. The consequences of this encounter become apparent when she becomes pregnant, carrying a metallic foetus that causes her to bleed engine oil. Subsequent to these events, Alexia embarks on a series of additional killings, ultimately finding herself on the run from the police. In a desperate attempt to evade capture, she adopts a male disguise, assuming the identity of the long lost son of a middle-aged fire-fighter officer.
At this juncture, the narrative of the film takes an unexpected turn, delving even deeper into its peculiarities. "Titane" unexpectedly evolves into a tender drama, exploring the lives of two wounded and solitary individuals who find solace in sustaining a shared delusion. Vincent insists that his fire-fighters accept Alexia as his long-lost son, Adrien. He even draws religious parallels, referring to Alexia as Jesus to his own god-like figure. This perverse religious imagery (Jesus presumably is a cross-dressed female serial killer) serves as a recurring motif throughout the film.
It is at this point that the director and screen-writer Ducournau introduces another extraordinary plot-twist. The police propose a DNA test to verify Alexia’s true identity, but the father adamantly refuses, asserting that he would unquestionably recognize his own son. Some might find this to be a contrived and ad hoc plot device but in reality Vincent's self-assured acceptance of Alexia extends beyond a mere narrative convenience. Vincent’s firm denial raises the question: is he a deranged man who refuses to see what is obvious to everyone else (including his ex-wife and his fire-fighters)? Or does his resolute stance reflect an unwavering devotion to the unusual fatherly bond he shares with Alexia? If that is so, could it be that Vincent rejected the DNA test precisely because he already knew what the results would be? Through this long and unconventional journey the movie impressively succeeds in humanizing Alexia’s cinematic “monster”, brilliantly avoiding the overt sentimentalism often associated with dramatic family narratives.

2023.05.30 12:40 PyrpleForever Tears of the Kingdom ganondorf moveset idea

Tears of the Kingdom ganondorf moveset idea
Here's my idea for if Ganondorf got his tears of the kingdom incarnation in smash, how his move-set would change. This is assuming he is based solely on Tears and not combining his move-set from his other appearances.
Warning there are spoilers for the end of tears of the kingdom. If you haven't rolled credits on the game yet, probably don't read this.
Jab: a horizontal slash with his katana that can be dodged by jumping
Ftilt: a high to low chop with the katana that can trip if connects at the sweet spot
Down tilt: his current kick
Up tilt: an elbow strike upward
Neutral air: a cross body slash with his sword
Fair / bair: basically the same as Byleth's where he uses his soear, but he would actually thrust with the spear in front of him
Up air and down air: same as current
Fsmash: he takes out his Kanabō spiked club and smashes it forward, basically the same as his current fsmash but with a badass club instead
Down smash: he does a long wind up with his Kanabō and then smashes the ground, causing fire to erupt around him that does small damage over time to those hit. This can be dodged by jumping however.
Up smash: just his current up smash but with the katana instead
Neutral B: he shoots gloom projectiles forward. They don't have a lot of range or damage but they do hitstun that can setup for powerful combos.
Side B: he takes out his samurai bow and enters a powerful stance, shooting 1-3 arrows based on how long it was held. Not much range either but lots of damage.
Down B: he does a rush forward with his samurai spear, leaving a trail of fire and gloom that lingers for about a second that does damage
Up B: his powerful leap. He uses his power to jump up high and then land forcefully. The landing has a hitbox as does his entire body, so it's very risky to try to trap him.
Final smash: Demon dragon. Ganondorf swallows his secret stone and transforms into the demon dragon, then flies across the screen damaging any in his path.

2023.05.30 12:40 Comfortable-Land1147 Achieved my dream job, but am now realizing that maybe money is more important to me? Anyone have any advice?

I’m 27 years old and got the job I always said I wanted as a kid. I became a zookeeper. I went to school and got my bachelors degree in Environmental Science and have now been working as a zookeeper for a little over 2 years. I absolutely love the job and wake up most days happy to go to work. Growing up I listened to the advice of “do something you love, and you’ll never work a day in your life”. Which I guess is true but I am now realizing it may not be feasible/sustainable to live off of the amounted income for the rest of my life. There is pretty much no room for growth, very little to no pay raises or promotions, and you make the same amount as someone who has been working there for 30 years. I love the job and the work but I think my life outside of work is more important to me. Having to work weekends and holidays isn’t ideal. Paying rent, bills, buying groceries is tough with this pay and I have no savings accumulating. After having worked my ‘dream job’ and knowing what it is like, I have decided that making more money is more important to me to be able to have a better life outside of work. I want to be able to afford a house and a family someday and have enough money in order to be comfortable and not have to stress and worry so much about bills. Anyone have any advice as to what I should do? Anything at all would be great.

2023.05.30 12:40 MisterAtticusKarma Question/Discussion about The Mandalorian.

So I have recently been watching everything Star Wars in Timeline order and finally got to the Mandalorian. I am currently halfway through Season 2 (No Spoilers Please), and assuming the answer wont spoil anything. Can someone explain to me why the Empire is basically everywhere and The New Republic is just like "Oh the empire is growing in these sectors? We can just ignore that." Wouldnt the Republic be hyper-fixated on immediately eliminating any remaining Imperial Bases/Ships/Soldiers?

2023.05.30 12:37 molonvr Basim is Bayek (or vice versa)

Like all of you guys, I've been playing for many years and I know the saga very well, both the most famous part intended as the main plot and the characters and the lesser known part as the whole subplot that binds the various characters over time and in the actions they have carried out, very often understanding why after a long time.
I would also add that the Assassin's Creed saga has had its ups and downs but the story has always been of a good level and what has always impressed me, even in the less famous episodes, is the interconnection of the characters.
And here is my reasoning:
Basim and Bayek are directly related and possibly the same person.
Basim seems to come from further back in time, with the video we saw completing AC Valhalla.
Basim also has a direct connection, given his translation of Basil from Arabic, with a series of Saints and Venerables in the Byzantine / Greek area while if we translate from Kurdish: I'm fine (as if it had reached a moment of completeness, I'm ready!).
Bayek we know who he is and where he comes from, also translating from Kurdish the literal translation is: a wind (as if it had arrived there from afar).

So what do the two characters have in common?
They come from afar, they have a divine lineage or almost, they sacrificed their family in the name of the order but above all they can't find peace for the death of their son, and as you will also remember in AC Valhalla when Basim loses control inside del macchiario repeats it over and over again without knowing who to blame.

So I'm thinking that Basim/Bayek are the same person (or even an evolved ANIMUS based on Artificial Intelligence) and in a particular moment in which perhaps a piece of Eden could have had the upper hand and trigger some reaction.

Finally, in support of the fact that the Middle East is a hot area as regards the presence of Isu (Virtual Juno type) and Actions from parts of the various orders, I remind you that in Villa Auditore the statues belonged to characters from those places:

2023.05.30 12:36 BasicSith2 Journey to the Treetop

Where memories fade, love's essence ignites.
A car crash into a pine tree shatters the facade of a once seemingly blissful marriage. Jack's desperate attempts to bring down the tree with a chainsaw leave his wife, Hazel, wondering what has become of their bond. Is he still the same man she fell in love with three decades ago? As Hazel battles her fears, "Journey to the Treetop" invites readers on an emotional ride through the tumultuous landscape of a mind affected by memory loss.
CABIN ROAD is the gateway to paradise.
But why does this feel like a path to hell?
I smash into a tall pine tree that stands in the middle of the otherwise straight gravel road. I've gone around it hundreds of times before. But now, my fingers are firmly gripped on the steering wheel, disregarding all my commands. Have I become paralyzed?
A potato is wobbling on the dashboard, having obviously leaped out of the potato crates in the back seat. Jack gets out and strides to the front bumper. His lips press into a thin line as he appraises the destruction and cost of fixing it. Nothing should hold him back from swearing. But he maintains his composure, anger simmering just beneath the surface.
The memory of thirty years of marriage fills my mind. I question whether this man has drugged me. A fleeting thought that he might have crashed the car surfaces, but it seems too much of a stretch. I take a deep breath and try to clear my head.
In the rear-view mirror, Jack gets an axe from the trunk. He comes and gazes at me from my window, his eyes looking heavy and weary—like two precious pearls inside their oyster-like shells. I straighten and open the window:
“Thank goodness it wasn't worse.”
“I'll chop it down.”
“That’s a pretty big tree, Jack.”
Jack blinks several times.
“I do have a chainsaw...”
“Yes.” I wonder what stories this tree has witnessed during its lifetime. Will we see the marks of our journey on its rings? There’s always something that gets squeezed in tighter, begging to be unraveled.
“I'll drive you to the cabin and grab the chainsaw,” Jack says. “Prepare some coffee while I'm gone.”
Our short passage to the cabin around the bend is like shifting through the fog of memory. I'm in the kitchen. My fingers clench around the coffee tin can and spoon. Bewilderment engulfs my brain. I spot Jack with his saw. He slips around the corner, the curve of his bottom visible through his tight work trousers. I feel anxious about the crash. Did I deliberately hit the tree?
The measuring spoon slips from my hand. It drops onto the floor along with the tin can. I clean up the mess. Could someone drive into a tree on purpose? Accidents do happen after all. It's fascinating to see him take on this role of being so chivalrous. Far away from his academic duties.
As the chainsaw outside whines, I scroll through social media on my phone. People arguing about something or other makes me tired. I pick up a copy of Science magazine from the coffee table and scan through an article titled “Quantum Communication Across Interstellar Space,” authored by Jack. As usual, the details go right over my head. I like to amuse myself with the idea that it speaks about communicating with individuals who have passed away.
Billy's message pops up. He asks for money for a fishing trip with his buddies somewhere in Lapland. I am more than happy to support him since he’s enlisting in the army soon in July. My big boy.
I tell him about the car crash, and he gives me advice about a car repair store. Jack comes back earlier than expected. He plops into his seat, sweat beading on his forehead and the smell of resin emanating from him. He seems disappointed.
I pour coffee to the brim.
“Did the saw get stuck?”
Jack shakes his head and adds sugar to his mug.
“It got shattered under the tree. I stumbled...”
Silence descends slowly, like dust.
“My helmet cracked.”
“Do you want me to buy new parts when I go to the store?”
“No need.”
“But there's pruning and cutting to do first.”
Jack takes a bite out of a cinnamon bun.
“I can sharpen the axe.”
“Ask the neighbors for help, that's what they're for. You can also mow the lawn while I'm away.”
“The grass is already short— it'll die off.”
“You don't want ticks taking over! Think about your mother's joint pain. She would roll in her grave if—”
“Yes!” My answer is like a flyswatter, leaving no room for further discussion or quantum physics.
Jack is busy chewing on the bun. His regular coffee breaks, which have become part of his daily routine in his sixties, have honed impressive jowls.
We enjoy our coffee and stare at the lake. Calm as a mirror. I have a feeling Jack will soon suggest fishing. As I gather my things to leave, I call to him:
“Don't hurt yourself. Should I bring more buns?”
“I was thinking of skipping the sugar and wheat...”
I simply smile in reply.
“Can you refuel the car?” Jack asks.
I'm already off. The door slams shut in the middle of his sentence, but Jack knows better than to expect a response.
I jump into the driver's seat and immediately notice forgotten potato baskets in the back seat, but my mind drifts away before I can do anything about it. As I pass by our old well, I remember that we need to discuss connecting the cabin to a new water source. No matter what it costs, it needs to be done. Why should I agree to be responsible for our running water anymore?
I collide with something hard. Airbags abruptly inflate around me, disorienting me as my vision blurs. Struggling to escape from the tangled mess of seatbelts and inflatable bags, it feels like I'm an old person trying to climb out of a bouncy castle.
My gaze rests on the scene before me, but my thoughts can't understand it. I have plowed into a tree stump. The tree stretches over the ditch. Nearby the chainsaw lies crushed. The cutting chain is nowhere to be found.
I get back in the car. Should I phone Jack for an urgent call? Inhaling slowly helps me stay calm. Why didn’t he mention the tree stump?
Someone taps on my window
I jump and my neck stiffens up. I reach for the window switch.
“I should have told you about...” Jack says.
“The stump?”
“Didn't you see the tree on the ground?”
“I'm sorry. I was daydreaming.”
“Great galaxy, Hazel! You're burning through our last savings as if money grew on trees!”
Jack is being truly authentic with me. I stare back at him like some big-eyed exotic species from Madagascar that I can't identify in all this chaos.
Jack opens the door and starts to put the cushion back in its place. We turn on the engine, giving the accelerator a test ride.
“Let's go to a repair shop. I'm sure our insurance will cover this,” Jack suggests. “We can say that we had an accident with a reindeer.”
“You're supposed to report it to the police or game warden if you hit an animal,” I reply.
Jack pauses for a moment. He then reverses and drives forward again, but when he looks into the rear-view mirror, he slams on the brakes.
“I have a better plan.”
He retrieves an orange towing strap from the trunk, a burst of determination on his face. He connects the stump and the tow hook.
“Get ready. We’re going to take a quantum leap here.”
We buckle our seat belts with a single click as we prepare for the inevitable disaster. We had already made so many mistakes together, starting with raising our children—though sometimes failing was just part of parenting.
Jack revs up the engine. A sudden lurch forward, then Jack howls in pain as the stump smashes through the rear window, clambering through the seats and lodging itself onto the gearbox, trapping Jack's hand. He veers off toward the ditch.
The Milky Way spins around us, potatoes fly in the air and suddenly, all is quiet. We find ourselves upside down—surrounded by earthy potatoes and broken glass.
I try to break the silence:
“I just remembered: Billy's friend can repair cars at the vocational school much cheaper.”
Jack looks so pale, his face almost white. I guess he’s contemplating the next step.
Through the cracked windshield, I see the chainsaw chain lying in the ditch. How did it come to be rusting away? Maybe everything will go back to normal if we sit here and wait.
It feels almost as if we are flying in outer space, my nerves slowly calming down. But then a sudden stillness strikes that is anything but soothing.
“Jack, I’m feeling a bit dizzy…”
No answer.
I snap open my eyes and the scene in front of me has changed drastically. It’s like I’ve been sucked into some kind of surreal void.
I hear a tapping noise on the window. An apology and then a loud thud; a huge rock has been hurled through the glass. A stench of strong aftershave ferments around me. A burly arm reaches across to release the seatbelt. An elderly man growls something crude, nothing like Jack's usual scout-like words.
My eyes close as I'm being cradled away, and visions of Jack's mathematics and symbols flicker around in my mind. Is the soul truly free when there is no force of gravity to pull us down?
I don't know who my savior is, but I can sense his worry as his face reddens. He is in military garb.
I come to as I feel my head thudding against the rubble. Instantly, I yearn to run away, contemplating that perhaps this experience is only a dream, and I'm back in the cabin chamber, tucked securely underneath a cosy blanket. A blanket that grants me the power to perform heroic acts like disappearing in a puff of smoke.
“Are you okay?” he speaks in a familiar voice.
Fingers brush over my clothes, picking out pieces of glass. My pocket contains an odd bulge—a potato? Suddenly, everything clicks: an aged Billy, wearing a major's rank insignia. How could he have achieved that rank so fast?
“Son, what are you doing on this tree ring?”
Billy peers at me from across the way, accompanied by a mysterious female figure.
“We came to check on how you're doing,” Billy says. “Do you remember what happened?”
I raise my head and look around. There's nobody in the driver's seat of the car.
“Where is Jack?” I manage.
Billy furrows his brows like a detective would when weighing evidence. An image of the classic TV show Columbo flashes through my mind—he could lull suspects into a false sense of security before dropping the hammer of his sharp intellect on their inconsistencies. But I'm not hiding anything here. Though why are modern shows so bad? That's another mystery entirely.
“Mom, what were you doing out here? The road is an absolute disaster zone, with the car smashed up in the ditch.”
My thoughts swim haphazardly as Billy reads something from my expression, then casts his eyes towards his new girlfriend for assistance.
I try to get up but it hurts too much. Instead, I reach into my pocket and feel a sandy-sharp potato there. Maybe I can still wash it off.
“I’m fine,” I reply. “I need to get back to plowing the field... baking buns for Jack... buying a chainsaw...”
The darkness returns and I feel my body shiver. I'm in the car, traveling down bumps I've known for quite some time. Soon, I’m settled inside the cabin's living room on the couch. The coffee maker is gurgling in the corner of the room. Billy is on a call with a doctor about how to deal with grief and coping alone; it seems someone had died while cutting down a tree last year. He gets furious and threatens to take away the keys from the person he's talking to. It might be a good idea; many people have too many keys that they don't use anyway.
My head is spinning with thoughts about Jack's absence. Where did he go?
Someone runs water over potatoes while a pot clatters on the stovetop. My temper rises as I wait for Jack's return. I won't stay here by myself without an explanation from him. I call out for Jack until there's no sound left but my coughing voice.
I crave sausage soup, and I know I must go to the store. As I try to move forward, I am wading through tar. They guide me to the coffee table. According to Jack, time runs faster the more hunched your back becomes. Let it be and let us sit here, motionless, gazing at the tips of our shoes. Surely, time has slowed down in this moment.
Billy reaches out and takes my hand. A handsome, greying gentleman. His girlfriend also places her hand on top of the pile. Her name is Ewa. A beautiful name, something familiar about her.
But did I hear her calling me mother?
In the yard, a squirrel hops with a cone in its mouth. It freezes and stares at me. I avert my gaze. My hands suddenly look wrinkled. I summon the inner strength that I've been striving to find for an eternity:
“Do we have to leave now?”
Billy exchanges glances with Ewa and then looks outside.
“You don't have to walk this path alone, Mother.”
We finish our coffee without saying another word. The wind sweeps across the lake. A pair of swans take flight, and a duet of gentle honks echo across the water.
A shivering cold envelops me. Billy and Ewa take me to the car. The potatoes can wait.
The sun blazes brightly above us as we travel the cabin road; shapeless clouds dot the horizon and suddenly I sense a presence—as if someone is waving to me.
I surrender.
I believe I will be warmly welcomed.

2023.05.30 12:29 banu91 Can special teaching license be used to work at international schools elsewhere?

My current school (a private JHS & SHS) wants to hire me full-time next year (I am a part-time teacher right now). They will apply for a special teaching license (tokubetsu menkyo - 特別免許) for me. I wonder if this license can be used to work elsewhere. I know international school teachers hold teaching licenses in their home countries, but what if a foreigner with a special teaching license applied for international school jobs? Any opinions? Experiences?
I am planning to apply to Moreland University to get a teaching license if this plan fails. I want to work at an international school (a proper one) and can’t afford to get a bachelor’s degree in education now. FYI, I have a BA in communication sciences and a postgraduate diploma in TESOL (Trinity DipTESOL).

2023.05.30 12:28 Spaghetti_boi7 Tales from The Pizzaplex 06: Nexie

So i just finished reading Nexie and i have a few theories to the ending of the story.
Theory 1: When the Buddytronic Nexie was made in the Pizzaplex there was something like a glitch in the system maybe it could be that this was the moment Vanessa brought Glitchtrap in the system and Glitchtrap got himself into Nexie. At the end of the story Astrid got skinned maybe this was Glitchtrap trying to get a new body.

Theory 2: Similar to the first theory but it wasn't Glitchtrap that was in the doll rather it was agony of Glitchtrap and Nexie is doing this because she can (like the Fazbear Frights Agony Monsters)

Theory 3: The story also reminds me in some way to To Be Beautiful because Sarah and Astrid both got bullied in school both got an Animatronic friend and in both storys something want to be beautiful and the ending of both storys was pretty similar to me. Maybe it could be that Nexie is Eleanor 2 is and the hidden Antagonist of Tales from the Pizzaplex like Eleanor was in Fazbear Fright's

Tell me what you think about these Theorys and sorry for my bad english.

2023.05.30 12:27 lenasiya [DRUGSTORE BEETLE] Target acquired. It was a teddy bear with a hot wheat pack.

I've bought a second hand teddy bear, which contained a wheat hot pocket. The things you microwave and put on your stomach or head to feel warmth. It was purchased two years ago.
For some reason, the infestation only began recently. It was washed a long time ago.
How much time does it take for a drugstore beetle nest to develop significantly?
The teddy bear is now currently outside and will be thrown away in a sealed bag because I'm not taking any chances with another pest issue, lol.
I was lucky that they never discovered the kitchen and stayed in that paradise of a bear filled with grain, in my bedroom. I hope I'm not mistaken and the few remaining beetles die asap.
