2023.06.07 15:07 No-Knowledge-19 I think my life is over and need your help

[T.W: Suicide ideation, self harm]
Hi everyone, how y'all doing? Hope y'all are having a fantastic day.
Alright, I don't know whether this would be the right sub to post it but, I honestly don't know where else to post this and I'm looking for any tiny ounce of optimism.
Honestly, I myself don't know what exactly I am looking for. This is gonna be more like a rant ig. Just leave your opinion below guys.
I have been lurking in this sub for a while now and most people here seem chill, laid back and friendly. I thought, maybe reaching out to people of this sub would help me in some way or other way.
I'm 19M, I have been living with my parents. I'm from a tier 3 town in central Tamil Nadu. I'm an engineering student at a Tier 3 Anna University affliated college in my town. I'm a B.E Electronics and Communication Engineering student to be specific. I never really wanted to join this college tho.
I was a happy and studios kid back in my 10th std. My shit was together. I was the popular kid, but never really bothered to be popular in first place. (I'm sorry if I sounded cocky here)
I scored very good marks both in my 10th std midterms and preboards but, due to my lethargic attitude and my newly formed phone addiction back then, I messed up 10th std final boards and got only 372/500. I had the potential to get 400+ but screwed up big time.
We had a new principal at our school back then. She implemented strict rules for admission of previous 10th std class students into 11th std.
You had to have scored above 350 to even secure admission for 11th std (even if you were the old 10th std student). You had to have secured 400, to demand for Maths stream, otherwise you had to go for pure science.
My dad thought that there isn't much scope with pure science stream so he wanted me enroll for CS-maths. Since I had scored only 372/500, my dad decided to change my school.
I lost touch with my old schoolmates, couldn't make any new friends here. I hated every second in that new school. I was very depressed.
2020 came, so did COVID. This is when my mental health deteriorated. I also found out that my parents might not be the kindest people, which I thought them of to be.
One day, I heard my mom talk shit about me and gossip about me to one of my aunt on phone. I overheard it. Prior to that, I have told her multiple times to not do that anymore but, she still did. I was infuriated and wanted to teach her a lesson, so I took a blade from my sharpener and cut myself deep in one of my arms. When she the scar, she was horrified. She did feel sorry for a while about it but, when on to do it again.
I once kinda tried to do similar thing with my dad as he was also no receptive to my talks. I drank a bottle full of phenoyl from bathroom and cut myself multiple times. He didn't even feel sorry like my mom did. He just flat out told me that I was doing this all for attention. I drank that phenol while he was about to go to bed. He didn't do anything, he didn't even care anything about me, he didn't even flinch. He didn't care if I was alive or dead.
Now some of you may ask that this is highly toxic of me. Yes, I agree but, what can you expect from an only child born to two emotionally unavailable parents?
There were many times where their activities clearly bothered and I would tell them. They would still go on to do it. How am I supposed to communicate? Isn't communication a key in any healthy relationship? What if the person you are trying to communicate to, isn't receptive at all?
The more and more I hurt myself, they lesser receptive they became. They never bothered to ask me what I wanted or what's that's bothering me. The more and more I cut myself, they would take me to this money minded psychiatrist, who also never listened to my problems but would prescribe me bunch of sedatives, when I had no sleeping issue in first place.
I eventually formed a dependance on his sedatives down the line and couldn't get rid of them for nearly 1 year. I was taking meds throughout 2020 for nothing.
My parents would buy me anything but were never emotionally available or supportive. They were downright abusive to say the least.
Then, by the year 2021, I was about to write my 12th board exams but COVID second wave happened.
I got 357/500 in 12th std, which isn't some good marks. My batch got passed during second wave COVID lockdown when government declared us all to have passed the exams without writing them.
I always wanted to pursue my bachelors outside of my own hometown, like Chennai or Coimbatore but, my dad refused to let me go outside of this town cos he said he doesn't trust me and I would toil away all of my course duration, partying, goofing around instead of studying.
I even tried to convince him to send me to Trichy SRM but, he didn't bulge to it too. He said that our house is too far away so I wouldn't be able to study everyday after returning from college.
Trichy itself is 1½ hours away from my home. Not to mention, I myself have seen SRM bus often time crossing our neighborhood. I even begged him to get me enrolled at a hostel for the sake joining Trichy SRM but adhuku kuda, "Nee veetta vittu veliya pona padika maatta" crap.
I was basically given two options, get BCA at Sastra or go for B.E at this local engineering college. I chose the latter. I tried convincing my dad he didn't bulge. One of my relative even tried to support me but, he still didn't bulge.
I somehow secretly resent him for what he made me to do.
Now, let's talk about the real stuff that has been bothering me.
I joined this local tier 3 Anna University affliated college. I got one backlog in 1st sem. Then got 3 backlogs in 2nd sem. 4 new backlogs in 3rd sem. By the time I got 4 new backlogs, I had already cleared 3 out of the 4 old backlogs (1 from 1st sem +3 from 2nd sem). Now, I have total of 5 backlogs and I'm in 4th sem.
I was always afraid that I would spend the rest of my course duration trying to clear backlogs and I would never develop skills required for employment in the industry. Other times, I'm just scared that I will become one of this poor souls with 20+ or 30+ backlogs, who never managed to get a degree.
But then, I would always tell myself that it's okay. From now on, I would work hard. I will make sure I don't add up new backlogs anymore while simultaneously studying to clear old backlogs.
But what happened today, completely shattered my confidence.
Today was our second day of 4th sem final exams and I messed it up. Today we had EMF (electromagnetic field). Day before yesterday was our first exam, it was EVS. It went pretty well.
I had prepared well for my emf exam. I had scored good marks for this subject in both the internal exams. I got 75/100 in 1st internal and 71/100 in 2nd internal but still I messed it up in final exams.
Even the class topper was scratching his head during this exam.
Another thing to mention here is that I have decided to write my backlogs next sem as I had zero time this sem to prepare for backlogs.
This is when my biggest fear flared up.
What if I start to pile up even more backlogs, even if I put the hardwork.
What if I become one of those guys who are stuck with Anna University forever?
What if, even if I manage to clear all backlogs, it would be too late as all my friends from deemed and autonomous institutions would have developed skills and bagged jobs with high package?
I'm envious of my friends who got into IITs, NITs, SRM, Sastra and other autonomous institutions that follow AU syllabus.
Now, you all may say that if I had put hardwork, I could have got into it and my dad would have trusted me enough to let me go to Chennai or Coimbatore to pursue bachelors.
I'm not gonna blame my deteriorated mental health back then but, some of my old schoolmates, who scored way below than me in 12th managed to get into institutions like SRM.
My dad had wished to, he could have also sent me to SRM but, his ego has affected my career very badly.
All of my schoolmates at deemed institutions and autonomous institutions don't have any arrears and are actively working to develop skills required for employment. Many of them are doing projects, internships and freelancing, improving their CV.
I'm afraid I will be left behind. I'm afraid there wouldn't be any future for me.
I just wanna kill myself (sorry if I sound dramatic).
The only way to escape my abusive household is to get a good job but, what if I remain dependent on my parents for the rest of my life.
I often feel powerless and controlless about my own life. I'm tired of my life. Wish mom had aborted me.
I admit the fact that I wasn't very serious with my studies when I joined college but, isn't there anything to fix it? Am I doomed forever?
If I toil away all the hours for backlog prep, when will I have time for skill development?
I sometimes believe that Anna uni affliated colleges only create engineers on paper for name sake. Engineers with zero skills (I'm sorry if I sound stupid here but that's how it all seems to me) what do you all think?
Our college does have campus interviews but most of the companies that come here are start ups.
I don't wanna get into an unorganised startup.
After getting into my college and being part of my house, I know how it feels to be part of something so unorganised and chaotic. I can't do this anymore.
P.S: Sorry for the long rant. Please do shed your opinions.
Tdlr: Thinking of committing suicide cos I have unsupportive parents and backlogs

2023.06.07 14:49 Foreign_Condition_11 AITA for prioritizing my Feelings over someone elses

Sorry for the language, Not a native speaker
Soo i really don't know where to start.. i think i might have fucked Up but im not Sure My Boyfriend and i haben been together for over 3 years. We dont really live together, we both have our seperate places but since the beginning we're Always together... I have slept maybe 3 nights in the Last 2 years in my Appartment alone. The last few months were some of the hardest of my lives, my grandma died, my grandpa died the year before, and because of my really challenging University where i have to leave for the week and i am only Home on the weekends, i am really Stressed out.. i would need therapy but Just Dont have the time for it and it would propably end my career.. recently i had my Finals.. It was a though time because i am really struggling at the Moment and the constant learning and Stress really took its toll on me. My Boyfriend knows This. So its now the Weekend before my Finals.. im freaking Out because i really want to just have it done and Not have to Take these again in a few months. A friend of him contacted him If she could live with him for some time. Until Then i was really trying to be Friends with her.. but my Boyfriend Sometimes acted weird when Something was about her. I Always diskliked that she needed so much confirmation. Everything she did she Always had to Show him.. especially when Its about Hobbys i do too i felt Bad because she Just hast sooo much more time than me.. and of course because of This she is better in me than Most of them.. i told my Boyfriend that and He doesnt understand how This Makes ne feel Bad in anyway. In the past they didnt sleep together but nearly did.. the Always liked the other one when the other one didnt Like them Back.. so they never got together or anything but both wanted to at some time. One time she nearly cheated on her Then Boyfriend with him.. So yes i am Acting Like a Jealous Girlfriend when its about her But their whole History together Just doesnt make me feel good. He still has some Kind of sweet Spot for her that i Just Dont Unterstand.. He gives her soo much and helped her all her Life and i Just Dont really See what she does for him.. but thats Not my Problem.. but its important for the Situation. She always moves in with her Boyfriends after a few Weeks.. Well when It didnt Work Out for her .. Who was there to Help her everytime.. my Boyfriend.. oh and because of her Bad experiences with moving in together He doesnt want to Love together with me.. so thats my First problem with This whole Thing.. With her Last Boyfriend she moved together after a few Weeks.. she Had her own Appartement (my Boyfriend helped her move) and she only lived there a couple of Weeks before moving to her current Boyfriend. Well now the Problem is that she isnt Sure If she still Loves him because she met another Guy at University who also has a Girlfriend btw... She fled the Appartement with her Boyfriend and lived a couple of days at the other Guys House.. now she asked my Boyfriend If she could stay at His place.. He asked me and i Said i had to think about it.. i was stupid and agreed and hoped that i didnt feel Bad with This Situation and that we could make it Work ( i am still in the middle of writing my Finals, so i am really Stressed out and my Depression ist Really coming Back) I wanted to Help her because i didnt know anything about the Situation.. i thought it was an emergency and Something Bad Happend.. the more i thought about it the more i felt Bad about This whole Thing.. i told my Boyfriend and He was really unhappy with it.. so i changed my Mind again and Said that we could try It and If i am Feeling Bad i have to Go Home and Hope its better there.. So the weekend between my Finals i really Had to study.. but because she wanted to come He Had to Clean His place and wanted to buy new furniture.. so thats what we did.. for time reasons it was stupid for me to help him buy furniiture.. but i thought He Had a plan and it wouldnt Take so Long .. it did.. At the store He told me that she was Back at her Boyfriends place.. and in This Moment i got Mad because i especially Said to him If it is a emergency she can come.. i thought she couldn't Go Home and Otherwise would have No place to sleep (she Has other Friends where she could stay and enough money to Go to a cheap Hotel or Something Like that) And i really didnt Like it that He didnt told me that.. because i am in This Situation too, i am probaply the one who is most unkomfortable in This Situation.. ( i dont know her that well, We meet 3 Times and we communicated a lil bit over WhatsApp.. so she Had my number and could have contacted me btw) She knew that This Situation Stressed me Out, because at First she wanted to come when i am still away and writing my Finals.. i was Not okay with that and He told her.. Well the Moment i thought it wasnt an emergency Situation amymore i told my Boyfriend how i feel and that i think shes Acting a Bit selfish, for me it Felt Like she wanted a vacation to Sort her Mind at my Boyfriends place. Oh btw His place is really small, Its one bedroom and the rest ist Open.. so we would Always have Seen eachother etc.. Its Really Not spacious or practical for 3 people at all. I told him how i felt and He started arguing about her and the Situation and so much more.. He then felt the need to cancel her stay with him. I didnt Ask him to, but He Said He Had the Feeling He Had to. And now Hes Mad at me because He thinks i am Jealous and Just Dont Like her.. He thinks that she did nothing wrong at all.. but she Had other Options and Chose what was the nicest for her.. she dindnt think one Bit about me and that Makes me sad because until now i thought she liked and respected me. I would have never acted that way and ask Someone wth a Girlfriend whos Stressed af at the Moment to Crash with him If it was'nt an emergency.. but the emergency Thing ist also a Problem.. my Boyfriend thinks that i can't decide If Its am emergency or Not.. thats true, because i was never told anything except that shes Back at Home.. so for me it Just isnt an emergency amymore if she Can be Back Home.. their Appartment btw Is double the Size of my Boyfriends Appartement, so they each have their own Space there. I dont know.. i Just feeel Like he Chose her Feelings over Mine the Moment He decided to let her stay with him.. at the end he decided for my Feelings.. but This ist the biggest Problem we Had in our whole Relationship and He ist so angry at me, that i am selfish and insecure etc and Just doesnt Unterstand why i dont want to have her Here to make a little vacation at His place But with her he Doesnt See any wrong.. she didnt even ask him If it was okay for me.. i Just feeel disrespected and sad because i thought she liked me. For me This is kinda selfish.. but i dont know.. i think i have Just Higher Standards about Not Being selfish than other people.
And now our Relationship is at the biggest Low, i didnt study enough for my Finals and couldn't concentrate at all because i constantly Had to think about This whole mess and Just Hope that i didnt screw them Up And i am Feeling really sorry for my Boyfriend that i Put him in This misery.. but isnt she also at fault because she asked him in the First place even though she knew about our living situation and in how much Stress He is in General (Hes Working His ass of and i am afraid He could get a burn Out.. He Just has it really hard at the Moment) And i am also really sorry for her because she couldn't rely on my Boyfriend Like she Always did in the past. But Overall i am Just fucking sorry for my Boyfriend.. He Just wants to Help and i as His Girlfriend Just couldn't Support him in This Moment as i wished i could .. But i also feel really Bad because He is so angry at me and doesnt understand what i mean Normally i am Always helping other people and in Overall i am a people pleased .. i want that everyone feels good.. i Just need harmony and Peace in my Life and i never prioritize my Feelings over the Feelings other people.. except in This Situation because i Just feeel so Stressed out and depressed that i am Just done
So am i the asshole for prioritizing my Feelings over Hers?

2023.06.07 14:48 Due-Text7442 Weird vibes at concert from the fans

I made a comment about this on the hot takes post, and I’m probably gonna get flamed for it, but some of y’all need to CHILL. I went to one of their concerts last year and was at the front row because it was my first concert and I really wanted to see all the action. The vibes at the front were absolutely TERRIBLE. Most people I talked to didn’t even care about the experience or the music, and just cared about being in the front and keeping their spot. At one point, I had to go to the bathroom, and I had to literally shove my way through people because nobody would move. A lot of people had been following them the whole country and had gone to almost every concert while on tour, putting their lives on pause to see them. I mean I get it I guess, but these were the same people that were rabid about being in the front. I still had a great time, but it was just such negative vibes and almost like a cult like obsession from nearly everyone in the front row. It was wild, and nothing like the other concerts I have been to since, where people were there for the music and to have a good time. Has anyone else had a GA concert experience like this?? To everyone who had followed them around the country and tried to get to the front every time:why? I genuinely want to understand. I kind of don’t want to see them live again because of the type of people that were there. So much celebrity worship and obsession at that concert.

2023.06.07 14:33 adoreadoredelano How should I spend my afternoon and evening in Sofia, Bulgaria?

Hello! I booked a surprise holiday for myself, I had no idea where I was going before I arrived at the airport, so I have had no time to plan at all!
I’m at a cute hotel near the main street, according to my taxi driver. Now that I’ve gotten settled in, I thought I’d grab a snack and see what’s nearby, then have some dinner, and then find a grocery store on the way home where I can pick up some bulgarian snacks to try.
So, can anyone recommend what to see, where to eat and what snacks to pick up to make the first day memorable? The rest of my trip is planned out by the travel agency, so I just need to figure out today

2023.06.07 14:28 EatMoreFiber Moving to Norfolk/Hampton Roads? Welcome! Please read this before posting. [2023 edition]

By user request, I'm recreating this thread in an effort to allow /norfolk's members to update & improve the information. Please comment as needed and I'll do my best to revise the main text as quickly as I can. Thanks!
Welcome to /Norfolk! Our subreddit gets a lot of questions about relocating to the area, so be sure to search the subreddit to see if your specific questions have already been answered.
Here's a quick list of the top tips and most frequently repeated advice about moving to the Norfolk/Virginia Beach area:
  • Live on the same side of the water as you work. Our many bridges, tunnels and bridge-tunnels frequently experience heavy traffic volume and become chokepoints even on days without incidents or accidents. Commuting from the Southside (Norfolk/Virginia Beach) to the Peninsula (Hampton, Newport News, Williamsburg) and vice versa is not recommended. Additionally, many water crossings are now or will eventually be tolled. Get an EZ-Pass to pay the lowest rate.
  • This area floods. Look at FEMA flood maps for the area you want to move to and be aware of possibly needing flood insurance. Similarly, our area occasionally experiences hurricanes. Know your Evacuation Zone and learn more about Hurricane Preparations.
  • Hampton Roads has a lot to offer. Obviously there is the beach. But there is also a surprisingly good and growing food & craft beer scene. A great many museums and activities. And an easy drive to the mountains and other major cities. Career wise the medical center is growing year over year, and is only expected to continue expanding into a major hub for the region. Norfolk offers a slightly more urban feel, with lots of great food joints and cultural amenities, all while being walking and bike friendly. Virginia Beach is more suburban in feel, and has a large amount of great neighborhoods at a decent price not too far from the beach. Chesapeake is even more suburban, but more affordable. Suffolk is growing, but still by all rights could be considered mostly rural. (credit to Here4thebeer3232)
  • Check crime reports. Crime can happen anywhere but some areas see more reported incidents than others. Great areas can be adjacent to bad neighborhoods, sometimes separated only by a road or a few blocks. When buying or renting a residence, try to visit the area at different times of day and strike up conversations with locals to get a feel for the location. Use Norfolk's Crime Mapping tool to view crime reports and statistics.

    • Norfolk's hardiness zone is 8a, for any gardeners out there. A bit further west, and you're in 7b.
    • The large military presence means a lot of traffic around 4pm. High school gets out around 2, middle school around 3.
    • There are slow cargo trains going to and from the port. When scoping out neighborhoods, check for tracks nearby, and if there are any bridges or underpasses to help bypass a stopped cargo train. Example: Taussig and Granby, near the post office? If you hear a train, pray that it's a short one, because I haven't found a shortcut there yet.
    • This WeatherSpark page has some useful data on the local climate for anyone particularly interested in our weather patterns. TL;DR, it doesn't really freeze here, but we still get snow every few years. (credit to sin-so-fit)
    • Check out the jet noise map... i've lived here for 30 years and have heard jet noise but we bought before checking and happen to fall right under one of those dark green circles near lynnhaven mall.... they fly 50 fucking ft overhead all day long. walking the dog just a block away and it's a completely different world.

2023.06.07 14:27 DaVols Advice needed regarding UT-Georgia next season

So I finally won the battle at home. My wife is was a lifelong ND fan and I got her to decommit from them and join us on Rocky Top. After the 'Bama game last year she looks at me and says "we're going to a game next year."
After looking at the calendar the UGA game makes the most sense (big game and timing of it is perfect with our work schedules). Now, I need someone tell me what is the best avenue to get tickets and where to stay. I haven't been on campus on in 15 years, so I don't know what has changed.
I'm assuming that stubhub/seatgeek is the best avenue for tickets (I know they'll be expensive, that is fine) and the hotels near campus are super expensive that time of year. Is there something I'm missing? Looking for any and all relevant information.

2023.06.07 14:10 DeploraBill92 Air Quality in AC This Weekend

I hope this an appropriate post for this sub. My friends and I are planning a trip to Atlantic City from Friday-Sunday, have various things planned, including the outdoor HQ2 Pool Party Saturday afternoon.
As many of you may already be aware, there are wild fires raging in Nova Scotia, Canada at the moment. The smoke has drifted down the coast, and their is currently an Air Quality Advisory in NYC and the surrounding areas. If you look up pictures of the sky from the Yankee game last night, you can see how eerie the haze is.
That being said, I was wondering if anyone that is near AC (I am in the Poconos so I'm not really close) has any idea the rumblings for this weekend. Will the air still be bad? I heard the advisory goes through Thursday night, but who knows how long this will last. If the haze is still bad, is there a chance that any outdoor events get cancelled? Or even indoor clubs?
I know these questions may be impossible to answer, but just wanted to do my due diligence in case I need to cancel the deposits on my hotel room

2023.06.07 13:58 DianaJ0406 Is LA dangerous nowadays for 4 females to travel?

We're both college students from the east coast, decided to spend our summer break in LA because my friends' cousins used to live near Downtown LA and Beverly Hills, and she said she wanted to retrace the steps of her childhood. Both of our moms plans to visit us and maybe hang out together for a month, so the trip's highly likely to be foursome.
But me being an Asian-American my friend mentioned, being worried, that she heard LA had quite some troubles & hate crimes involving Asians after COVID. Not particularly hate crimes, but the overall safety has gone.. well, bye-bye.
People say that carjacking and all these 'petite-crime' rates have gone up nationwide, not just west coast, after many lost their jobs due to COVID but we didn't really notice any increased threats whilst running around in NY.
We're not so little, both over 5'6 but quite ..thin? And we plan to stay at only 5 star hotels, using public transportation mainly and maybe 2 weeks of rental-car road trip. I'm not worried about parking in big shopping malls or any building with CCTVs but our road trip to Vegas sounds a bit.. dangerous after hearing concerns about walking around late at night in beach areas.

Our concern is if the east coast or midwest is a better fit for 4 women with umm... how should I put this nicely... huge interest in fashion (?). My friend's mom already gave us some money for our trip because she didn't want to drive around in a honda. *cough*
Yeah so... you get the idea. Is it less dangerous to walk around in silk dresses or just shorts..? It'd be the best if we just walk around rodeo drive for a week straight but we kinda want to explore around a bit.
Can you recommend some areas that we need to avoid? And is it indeed not so safe for two young girls and two moms to navigate through?

2023.06.07 13:50 JRE47 Nifty Or Thrifty: Innocent Cup (And a Fond Farewell To The Silph Arena)

All good things must come to an end. 🥲
As you surely know by now, this will be the very last Cup in The Silph Arena's long and glorious history. And so even though I slowly faded away from my monthy meta writeups for Silph some time ago (I think it's been over a year now! 🥹), I HAD to come back for one last ride together, my friends. Like many of you, I only ever got into PvP because of The Arena, and was a PvP veteran when GBL was still but a twinkle in John Hanke's eye. Many wonderful memories of tournaments and communities, local and remote, that I will cherish always.
And of course: YOU, my dear readers. I am sorry I stepped back, but you all surpassed beyond me and my relatively simple meta overviews. After a while, budget picks became less and less necessary to study as you had more and more tools already at your disposal, built up from the metas of the past.
In short, to paraphrase the great Yoda himself: I am what you grew beyond. That is the true burden of all teachers.
And perhaps, here at the end, you still don't need my simple budget heroes, my rather basic overview of the meta and, of course, off-meta potential wonders. You know, the thrifty AND the nifty stuff. 😉
But I can think of no better way to say a proper goodbye to the good folks at The Silph Arena AND you, my dear friends, than to give this one last go. Together.
One last..."Nifty Or Thrifty"! For old times' sake.
So here we go!
For those who don't remember, this article series serves a few functions. First, it gives a first blush, comprehensive look at the meta for the upcoming Innocent Cup, particularly from the perspective of which Pokémon are likely worth the cost of leveling up and adding a second charge move (nifty) and which ones would probably work out fine without heavy investment (thrifty), including some alternatives to the more expensive options. For those on a stardust budget — and/or folks trying to save up some dust for the future — it can be daunting trying to figure out where to spend or not spend it. We all want to field competitive teams of six, but where can we get the best bang for our buck and where should we perhaps instead channel our inner scrooge?
And as always, while I have tried to whittle somewhat, this is likely to be a long read, just to warn you up front! But always as per normal, I'll try to keep it entertaining as well. 😃
Before we dive in, make sure to familiarize yourself with what makes up Innocent Cup. It's Dragon, Fairy, Flying, Psychic, and Water type Pokémon, with with Arbok, Dragalge, Garbodor, and Swalot specifically whitelisted in as well. Excluded are Ice, Fire, Poison and Steel types, plus Altaria, Galarian Zapdos, Galarian Moltres, Galarian Articuno, Cresselia, Hawlucha, Lanturn, Mandibuzz, Mantine, Mew, Alolan Ninetales, Noctowl, Pelipper, Pidgeot, and Trevenant are all specifically banned. The full list and rules are over here, so check that out before reading on.
Now it's time to dive in, but only after one final, unapologetic musical intro. Hit it!
🎼 Oops, let's do this again
🎶 Silph played with our hearts
We got lost in the game
Oh baby, baby
Oops, I think I'm in love
Silph was sent from aboooooove
I'm not that Innocent....
Okay, maybe not one of my greatest ever, but it was either this or a mushy goodbye song like "My Way" or something.
Anyway, in retro style, let's go through this final meta in order of cheapest second move cost all the way to the Legendaries. Here we go!

10,000 Dust/25 Candy

Volt Switch Thunder Punch & Wild Charge/Psychic
There is a LOT in AhChu's favor here. It resists Flying, Psychic, Electric, and Fighting damage — all very relevant in this format — and wails on all the Waters and Flyers around. As tempting as Grass Knot is for its ability to blow away the Mud Boys (and other Ground types), I think that if you choose NOT to use Wild Charge, it is Psychic (the move, to keep the old inside joke going!) that you want more, as it can at least slap around the important Poison types in the meta (beating ALL of them, whereas Dragalge and Swalot can escape otherwise). That said, the overall more threatening move remains Wild Charge, which obviously has its drawbacks, but is pretty widely unresisted and alone has the power to blow away things like Hypno, Azumarill, and Araquanid.
Thunder Shock Discharge & Acrobatics
When I began this article (WAY too long ago now! ), Emolga was a mere footnote here. But that was then, and this is now with the addition of Acrobatics. I still don't know how high Emolga may soar now in PvP, but I know that with THIS meta, it should be off to an impressive start!
Wing Attack Sky Attack & Brave Bird
Wait wait wait... Wing Attack and Sky Attack and Brave Bird? Why have you hardly seen any of these used? Well, it's much less tanky than Pidgeot and especially Noctowl, which is why they generally get all the press and poor Swellow usually languishes. But one thing that has always separated Silph from GBL are the spot bans, and in this Cup, it is Noctowl and Pidgeot that are on the outside looking in, allowing Swellow to soar high. And beyond the obvious Electrics and a few Fairies, there really isn't too much that it has to fear. Go fly past the competition!
Leafage Brave Bird & Seed Bomb
Poor Decidueye may remain unexciting in PvP, but at least Dartrix now gets its moment in the spotlight as a budget (and with the addition of Leafage, perhaps even better?) Tropius here. I say "perhaps better" despite the fact that Razor Leaf Trop has a better record because of between the two, only Dartrix manages to overcome Dragalge and Clefable (and spicy Togetic). Trop instead shreds things like Hypno, Gliscor, Wobbuffet, Alolan Raichu, and Seaking, so there's certainly room for both, but Dartrix is absolutely the better fit on some teams.
Fairy Wind Moonblast & Seed Bomb/Grass Knot
I'm listing Charm and/or Hurricane as options here, but other than the latter sometimes winning the mirror, there's really nothing major they can do that Fairy Wind and Moonblast (along with one of the now-two Grass moves) can't. Only with the speedy charging of Fairy Wind can Whimsie outrace stuff like Azumarill, Tapu Fini, and Whiscash, and Moonblast is more reliable than Hurricane at taking out things like Wobbuffet, Zapdos, and importantly, have the advantage versus Dragalge. As for Grass Knot vs the new Seed Bomb, the former has the power to take down Wobb and Whiscash, while the latter instead now outraces (Fairy Wind) Slurpuff, (Ice Beam) Jellicent, and (Sludge Wave) Swampert. Go with Fairy Wind. You have plenty of other Charm options anyway. For example....
Charm Ice Beam & Disarming Voice
Yes, you definitely want both Ice Beam and the new Disarming Voice for Wiggly to be well-rounded, but as is often the case with Charmers, it can often be best to go for the Charm-down, allowing additional wins against stuff like Dedenne, Tapu Fini, Florges. and several fellow Charmers (assuming they are not also trying to just Charm-down). Wiggly remains among the best, if not THE best, pure Charmer in yet another format.
Fairy Wind Meteor Mash & Moonblast
Fairy Wind is now the way to go here (and likely in many metas yet to come), as Meteor Mash can do some serious work, especially in whalloping the other Faires! You can run Psychic as well to also shock Poisons (Swalot and Dragalge in particular), but it's overall a bit weaker than Moonblast, which is needed for wins like Azu, Hypno, Wobbuffet, and most of the Electrics in the meta (Dedenne, Zapdos, and Emolga, specifically).
Infestation Sludge Bomb & Ice Beam/Gunk Shot
I've written about Swalot before, but only as an often-desperate attempt to show it as a decent thrifty Poison with upside. But never has it really SHOWN that upside like it does here in Innocent Cup. It can swallow all Grasses and Fairies whole, and can also topple things like DDeoxys, Alolan Raichu, Dedenne, Wobbuffet, Seaking, and fellow Poison Garbodor. Give it Ice Beam for coverage instead of big closer Gunk Shot, and while it gives up a couple Fairies (Azumarill, Tapu Fini) and Araquanid, it gains Ice-weak Zapdos and Zweilous instead. Swalot is not only finally a breakout star here at the end of Arena play, but you have legit options with it! You love to see it.
Mud Shot Hydro Cannonᴸ & Earthquake/Sludge Wave
It would be easy to assume that Sludge Wave is clearly THE way to go in this meta filled with Fairies and key Grass types. And there is wisdom in that, as Sludge does indeed conquer every Fairy here except the new Fairy Wind Togetic. But there remains just a strong a case for good old Earthquake instead, as it instead knocks out all the Poisons, plus Zweilous, Jellicent, and enemy Swamperts. The choice is even more in Quake's favor for Shadow Swampert, as it beats all the major Fairies besides Togekiss, Togetic, Azu, and Whimsie, still uniquely takes down Dragalge, Jellicent, and Swampert, and adds to that Whiscash and Rainy Castform as well. I understand the attention being given to Sludge Wave... Innocent Cup IS one of the better fits for it. Just don't put those blinders on too tightly. Earthquake still bears consideration too, depending on the rest of your team. And of course, there is also Shadow Swampert, which I think also prefers Earthquake, beating everything Quake non-Shadow Swampie can, PLUS Clefable, Tapu Fini, and Slurpuff as non-Shadow can only if it has Sludge Wave, AND completely unique wins versus Gliscor, Zapdos, and Rainy Castform too!
Mud Shot Mud Bomb & Blizzard
Aside from the just-buffed Mud Bomb making Whiscash a bit better anyway, it has one other big thing going for it in this meta that separates it from Swampert: Blizzard, which simply destroys Flyers (Drifblim, Emolga, Jumpluff, Togekiss, Togetic) that Swampert can't touch, as well as Whimsicott for good measure. Sure, Whiscash can't match Swampert's wins versus things like Hypno, Florges, Tapu Fini, or Florges, and usually will lose to Swampert in the head to head, but at least it stands on pretty equal footing in this meta. Some teams will want one, some will want the other. Which do YOU prefer, my friend?
Water Gun Hydro Cannonᴸ & Ice Beam
As always, Blastoise is not exactly exciting, but it can get the job done in a pinch. Its excellent bulk allows it to hang in and beat every meta Fairy that isn't part Water or Grass, and also handles things like Drifblim, Swampert and Whiscash, Swalot and Garbodor, and thanks to Ice Beam, Dragalge, Jumpluff, and (Air Slash) Tropius as well. Nothing flashy, but solid as always. I do not particularly recommend Shadow Blastie.
Shadow Claw X-Scissor & Liquidation
Golisopod is suddenly interesting now that it has all-new move Liquidation, which brings in new wins like Whiscash (it already beat Swampert), Swalot, Drifblim, and Gliscor. Add to this some surprising wins like Azumarill, Rainy Castform, and Alolan Raichu, and Golisopod may be more spicy than meta itself, but it's certainly on the upswing.
Dragon Breath Aqua Tailᴸ & Crunch
Gyarados does just enough to be interesting, including taking out all the Poisons and Dragons in the meta, all Grounds but Quagsire, and stuff like Hypno, Wobbuffet, Jellicent, Rainy Castform, Drifblim, Araquanid. Slurpuff, and even Jumpluff. Not bad, right? Just don't get too cute with Shadow Gary.
Confusion Psychic Fangs & Aerial Ace
Hey, leave it to me for the oddball picks, especially among the "thrifty" 10ks. Swoobat is NOT a good PvP Pokémon, but it DOES come with Confusion to blow away the scary Poisons, and being a Flyer means it performs well against things like Swampert, Medicham, and the Grasses as well. It also manages to several of the big name Fairies and even Gliscor and Rainy Castform too. Not fantastic, but a lot of potential fun in this final Silph Cup.

50,000 Dust/50 Candy

Poison Jabᴸ Icy Windᴸ & Drill Runᴸ
One thing that doesn't change, despite all the new Fairy Wind around, is that Seaking still wipes away ALL the Fairies here, even really scary ones like Dedenne and Aromatisse/Slurpuff, even with fast-charging Fairy Wind and their scary Electric and Grass charge moves. With its adaptive moveset, it also handles big Poisons Dragalge and Garbodor, Flyers like Gliscor, Tropius, Emolga, and Jumpluff (and most non-Razor Leaf Grasses in this meta in general), and Dragons like Zweilous. Versatile and a LOT of fun, Seaking earns every bit of its current Top 3 Ranking in Innocent Cup!
Fairy Wind Energy Ball & Acrobaticsᴸ
So here's one that DOES take a little hit with the redistribution of Fairy Wind (but Jumpie is still pretty good!). Jumpluff beats all the major Fairies except Florges... unless they're running Fairy Wind. But now it loses to FW Clefable, who is likely to suddenly be quite popular, and FW Togetic, who I feel like folks are going to bring as long-desired spice. It also has not a prayer against most Poisons (though it can handle Dragalge thanks to resisting Aqua Tail) but beats most Waters, Wobb, Medicham, Hypno, Zweilous, and even Tropius.
Thunder Shock Discharge & Play Rough
When and I other analysts starting looking over this meta, we got very excited about Deedee. Upon further review, I personally like Alolan Raichu better overall, as it knocks out things Dedenne cannot like Hypno, Florges, Drifblim, Jumpluff, Seaking (Deedee does NOT like Poison damage!), Fini, Castform, and Clefable. Dedenne IS still quite good, with its better bulk and Fairy subtyping allowing it unique wins like Wobbuffet, Slurpluff, and Zweilous. And of course, you can always put Deedee AND AhChu on the same team of six....
Fairy Wind Disarming Voice & Moonblast
So Florges doesn't do anything particularly unique, as it is arguably best running with all Fairy moves. It CAN do some neat things with Vine Whip, like beating Jellicent and winning the mirror, but Fairy Wind is just better, instead taking out Jumpluff, Hypno, Wobbuffet, Whimsicott, Tropius and more.
As for other 50k Fairies:
There is ONE other Fairy well worth mentioning here, though....
Bubble Ice Beam & Hydro Pump/Play Rough
If there's one lesson we learned early on in The Arena, it's that if you allow Azumarill into a meta, it will find a way to become relevant. And lo and behold, here is yet another example. Not even Swalot, Emolga, or Zapdos can safely overcome Azu! And that's on top of all the Fighters, Psychics, Flyers, Mud Boys and fellow Fairies that Azu can strike down. Azumarill is a strong contender here, as it has basically always been in these metas.
Hex Surf &/or Shadow Ball &/or Ice Beam
I think I can pretty definitively recommend Hex as the fast move, but after that? Time for a classic side-by-side. My default recommendation is Surf/Shadow Ball, which can get to meaningful wins like Whiscash, Drifblim, and the mirror, but also valid are Surf/Ice Beam and even Beam/Ball work. Ice Beam is basically required to beat Whimsicott, Tropius, Jumpluff, and Dragalge, but can usually do it alongside Ball or Surf. Beam/Ball can beat most of what Surf/Ball and Surf/Beam can except Clefable, Florges, and Slurpuff. I think the basic question is thus: do you need extra coverage versus Grasses and Dragons? If so: Ice Beam. If not? Probably just stick with Surf/Shadow Ball. But there's no "wrong" answer, really. Good luck!
Bug Bite Bubble Beam & Mirror Coat/Bug Buzz
Gotta be that Bug Buzz is the closer to go with, right? Well, yes... but also perhaps no. It's true that only the raw power of Bug Buzz can overcome things like Seaking, Fairy Wind Whimsicott, and Clefable, but as bad a move as Mirror Coat is, it's ALSO true that 'Nid can overcome all the format's Poison types (and win the mirror match) only with Mirror Coat, not Buzz. Do with that information what you will, but I like when I get to highlight secret tech like that.
Mud Shot Stone Edge & Mud Bomb/Earthquake
I still don't think it's quite right to call new Quag toy Mud Bomb a straight upgrade, as there are good things like Earthquake can still do that Bomb can't, like overpowering Azumarill and Swampert. But yes, Mud Bomb is probably the de facto standard now, getting its own nice wins versus things like Seaking, Rainy Castform, Tapu Fini, and Wigglytuff. Lord Quag is certainly more interesting than it was in May, particularly Shadow Quag which can do all of that PLUS also beat all versions of Jellicent, Hypno, and Togekiss, and Azumarill slides back into the win column too!
Dragon Tail Aqua Tail & Gunk Shot/Outrage
Good enough place as any to slide over to the relevant Poison types, since Dragalge masquerades as a Water type with Aqua Tail. But which way to go for the closer? Well, I'll start by saying that either one nets wins versus Araquanid (without Mirror Coat!), Tropius, and Jumpluff. After that, the slightly better record lies with Outrage that can beat Jellicent and Castform with high neutral damage, but I think I STILL lean towards Gunk Shot for its own unique win versus Azumarill and its high pressure versus enemy Fairies, Grasses, and others in the meta. In this case, I'd just keep it simple.
Infestation Gunk Shot & Body Slam/Seed Bomb
With a face only a mother could love, here comes the only meta that can also tolerate Garbo. It's still not quite on the same tier as Dragalge and Swalot, but yes, Garbo is legit viable in Innocent Cup. Body Slam is my recommendation for spam alongside the required Gunk Shot, as Slam overwhelms stuff like Wobbuffet and Araquanid. But there is some potential spice here as well if you instead run with Seed Bomb, as you can then beat (Sludge Wave) Swampert and surprise the heck out of Ground and Water types in general.
Acid Dark Pulse & Acid Spray
And even a small step below Garbodor (there is a sentence is never thought I would write!), we have Arbok withAcid, and NOT the Dragon Tail you might expect instead. While it's true that Tail can beat other Dragons and/or Poisons (Dragalge, Zweilous, and Swalot specifically), it's very poor otherwise. Acid is a bad move, but it does manage to dissolve (see what I did there? I so funny hee hee haha) every non-Psychic Fairy and Grass type in the meta besides Tapu Fini, which is obviously a big deal in this meta.
Confusion Shadow Ball & Thunder Punch/Ice Punch
Usually an analysis on Hypno means a long debate between competing (and all viable) movesets. Now there ARE several that work outside of my recommendation of Shadow Ball/Thunder Punch, but I am ready to label that the odds on favorite. It just brings the most overall pressure in this meta, especially to the many Water and Flying types (beating Azumarill as one specific example), at the very small cost of being non-ideal versus Grasses... though Hypno doesn't beat Jumpluff or Tropius with Fire OR Ice anyway, so in my mind, no harm, no foul. At least, that's the way I'd go for non-Shadow. For Shadow Hypno, Ice Punch now comes with the power to freeze and shatter Jumpluff and Tropius, as well as Gliscor and Swampert, and still manages to knock out Azumarill too. Best of all worlds!
Confusion/Tackle Psychic Fangs & Thunderbolt
Bittersweet moment here, as it's my last time getting to talk about ol' Geeriffa— um, Giffimar— uh, Jeffomafig? Oh, fine... Girafarig. Yes, I HAVE known how to spell it all these years. 😅 My boy has only gotten better since recieving Psychic Fangs, to the point that it's viable in TWO configurations in this meta: [Tackle]() to overcome fellow Psychics (the type, NOT the move... two long-running jokes in one section! 💪) like Hypno, or Confusion which overpowers Whimsicott, Drifblim, Castform, and Clefable and is, honestly, just the better fast move in general. And don't forget Shadow Farigamiraf, which does give up Swampert, Jumpluff, Gliscor, and Charm Whimsie, but gains Surf/Shadow Ball Jellicent (already beats other Jelli variants), Seaking, Tapu Fini, Whiscash, and Togetic... and now beats Hypno without needing Tackle! One last toast to everyone's favorite funky Girafamathingy! It's been real, buddy. Glad you get to go out in style. 🦒
Confusion/Water Gun Surfᴸ & Ice Beam/Psychic
Slowbro gets the slight nod because I like Confusion/Surf/Ice Beam the best personally (with standout wins versus Jumpluff, Tropius, and Florges), but if you want to instead run Water Gun/Surf/Psychic (the move!), then Slowking or Slowbro work equally well. The unique wins there are basically other Psychic types like DDeoxys and Wobbuffet. Either way, the Super Slow Bros are pretty nifty here! Similar BRUXISH not quite so much though.
Confusion Rock Tomb & Ice Beam/Shadow Ball
Not a strong recommendation, but Claydol does just enough here to be interesting (and that should make the Niantic employee that keeps adding moves to it every couple seasons very happy). With Ice Beam it beats Jumpluff, but beyond that you really want Shadow Ball, I think, which can instead beat Seaking and gives Claydol unique coverage versus Psychics, Flyers, AND Poisons, among others.
Counter Ice Punch & Psychic
Speaking of doing just enough to be interesting, this is one of those rare-ish metas where Medicham is merely okay. It does manage to hold down the Poisons as a good Psychic type should, but beyond that it doesn't really know what it wants to be in this meta, settling for picking off some big names but whiffing on plenty of others. I don't feel great about it myself, but be ready for it to show up in your opponent's six at some point, especially after it absolutely rocked the first Play Pokémon tournaments of the new GBL season.
Snarl Sky Attack & Brave Bird
One final chance to put in a good word for Honch (and end a 50k section with some spice... sniff 😢), one of the ultimate boom or bust options in PvP. Really not much to say than that... just reminding you that it and its Shadow version remain out there, lurking, daring you to take a shot with it. High risk, but potentially sky high reward in this final Silph month, folks!

75,000 Dust/75 Candy

Razor Leaf Aerial Ace & Leaf Blade
I feel I am contractually obligated to start this section with ol' Banana Chin, specifically to point out a rare disagreement with my good friend Mr. PvPoke, who lists Air Slash as the fast move of choice. Respectfully, I disagree... it is Razor Leaf you want here. Not only does it still manage to beat everything Air Slash can that you most care about, and not only does it shred even scary Water types like Seaking and Jellicent, but it's also THE way for Trop to beat Florges and Electric types like Alolan Raichu and Dedenne. If you want more charge move pressure and such, go with Jumpluff. If you want to just beat stuff down almost regardless of remaining shields, Razor Leaf Tropius is your friend.
Wing Attack Night Slash & Earthquake
Regular and Shadow both have plenty of merit. Non-Shadow has the bulk to outlast Clefable, Florges, Whimsicott, Zweilous, Medicham, Emolga, and Swampert, while Shadow instead has the raw power to overcome Jellicent, Tropius, Zapdos, Whiscash (before it can get to Blizzard), and non-Ice Punch Hypno.
Wing Attack Night Slash & Returnᴾ
Honestly, though... purified Gligar is just better than Gliscor. Return is a big equalizing beatstick that allows Gligar to beat everything Gliscor can (regular and Shadow Gliscor combined, that is) except Jellicent, Whiscash, and Swalot, and further add on wins against Dragalge, Togekiss, and Gliscor itself! I think Gligar is a big time sleeper in Innocent Cup.
Hex Icy Wind & Shadow Ball
It just got Mystical Fire, but at least in this meta, I think Blim wants to stick with Icy Wind, which does everything Fire can do plus can beat Flyers like Gliscor and Togetic. And just this once, I even give Shadow Blim a thumbs up. It drops Dedenne, but gains Tapu Fini, Rainy Castform, and stuff like Slurpuff too. Nice!
Water Gun Weather Ball (Water) & Thunder
No Lanturn, no problem? Lanturn would indeed be perhaps a bit OP here, but Rainy is juuuuuuust right. Washes away Swalot and Garbo and even resists-all-its-moves Dragalge, Clefable and Togetic and Wigglytuff, and of course a ton of Waters (Jelli, Azu, Fini, Seaking) thanks to Thunder (and Swampert thanks to Weather Ball spam). Someone is definitely going to do well with it this month.
Qucik Attack Psyshockᴸ & Moonblast
I mean, you CAN run Sylvie with Charm, but what makes it unique is Quick Attack. That plus Psyshock makes it the Fairy that handles the Poisons, while still doing most of the standard Fairy job (handling Dragons and Fighters and Bugs) and beating most of its fellow Fairies (and Jumpluff!) as well. It is very quietly a great Fairy in this meta.
Dragon Breath Body Slam & Dark Pulse
Yes yes, it MUST avoid double super effective Fairy damage. And that leaves it with a less than inspiring record against the core meta. But take those away, and it has little to worry about beyond the few Bugs and Fighters in the meta. It beats the other Dragons you're going to see, and obviously dominates Psychic and Ghost types. And being a Dragon means resisting Water and Electric and Grass damage and beating many of those types too. It's far better (and sure to be far more popular) than the simple numbers would indicate.
Dragon Breath Body Slam & Aqua Tail
Similar story here. The numbers are so-so, for similar reasons as Zweilous, but Dragonair puts out a lot of very spammy neutral damage. And unlike Zweilous, it can handle Seaking, Whiscash, DDeoxys and others.
I'll point out that Shadow DRAGONITE is pretty spicy too, though far less safe. It's more of a blunt object to the scalpel of Dragonair and Zweilous.

100,000 Dust/75 Candy

Running out of space (and already WAY out of time), so gonna blow through these briefly....


For those unfamilar, this final section wraps up with stuff that needs to be pushed far into XL Candy territory. It CAN be great, but we're way past any semblance of "thrifty" at this point. Let's bring this one home!
And before I ramble on any further... that’s a wrap! Thanks for hanging with me to the end... of this article, of course, but also for the many of you that have followed and supported me for four and a half years now. I appreciate and love you all. 💙
Before I go, one final extension of my thanks to my PvP friends, local and around the world, who have lent their own ideas and suggestions over the years and helped teach me to be a better player and student of the game. There are too many to list them all, but a few specific shout-outs to PvPoke, GO Battle Log,, PokeMiners, my old friends at GO Stadium for mutally getting each other off the ground in the pre-GBL days, and of course, one final time, to the good folks at The Silph Arena and The Silph Road. Krydos, Drock, Zooeys, the old Meta Team, Steeeeeeeeeeve, Myugenlol, and Dronpes for really launching this multi-year adventure by reaching out to me in the first place, back in simpler times. And to those I ran out of time/brain capacity to mention... you know who you are. Thank you for being here along that journey and walking parts of that (Silph) road with me. And once more, my thanks to all of you, dear readers, for your own encouragement, support, and patience with me over the years.
Okay, I said I wouldn't get sappy again, and specifically that I would NOT use this song, but I think I kind of have to as a musical outro. So with apologies to Ol' Blue Eyes... well, I always HAVE done these reviews... my way.
🎼 And now, the end is near
And so we face the final curtain.
My friends, I'll say it clear:
I stated my case, of which I'm certain!
And more, much more than this
I wrote it myyyyyyy way!
I hope you've enjoyed these analysis articles over the years as much as I've enjoyed preparing and sharing them with you!
All the best, my friends. I hope you have as many happy Silph Arena memories to hold on to as I do. To whatever comes next! Take care, Pokéfriends.
Don't cry because it's over. Smile, because it happened.

2023.06.07 13:42 sl0play Advice on next card / The right AMEX for me?

Background you can skip:
I went through a divorce and resulting bankruptcy a bit over a decade ago. Since then I've gone through the starter cards and slowly increased my available credit. I consolidated my post bankruptcy debt into a very large high interest loan and paid it off early. I paid off my car early. I pay my car insurance in full every term. I pay off the balance on my cards every month. This is all to say that I've been in debt and I don't like it, and now that I've eaten my share of dirt to get to where I am, I want the perks I feel I've earned.
I use my Discover almost exclusively as it offers decent cash back, especially during quarters with Amazon, Grocery, or Restaurant bonus points. I don't travel a lot, but I am entering a point in life where I'll be doing it more and I very much like upgrades and such. I also have a trip planned for next year I haven't booked (will be paying for 3 people).
Amex appeals to me as they aren't a bank like Chase or BOA, and honestly I've had better customer service while being arrested than I've gotten from Capital One. My family also likes to attend shows so the Amex early access stuff is enticing. The thing is, I do qualify for the 125K intro points on the Platinum, and I could easily meet the required spend, but the 6% on Groceries for the Blue Preferred and just getting cash back seems like my meat and potatoes, or the Gold card's 75,000 point SUB will pay its dues for 3 years... What I'm tempted to do is get the Platinum card, use it for a year, see how things are looking and then either switch to or add on a Blue Preferred or Gold card? Is that something I can even do?
Lastly, as much as I dislike Chase, I saw in a post that I can get a 90K SUB this weekend for the CSP in branch... if that is CLEARLY the thing to do I might consider, but I really do dislike Chase.

2023.06.07 13:39 TownRealistic5322 AITA for selling a concert ticket?

Several months ago, my friend, “Suzy,” and I received the opportunity to participate in the presale event for a musical artist’s current tour. Given the high demand for these tickets, Suzy and I agreed: If she made it to the front of the queue first, she’d buy 2 tickets for me and 4 for her; if I made it to the front of the queue first, I’d buy my 2 and her 4. Whoever bought the tickets would pay the other for their claimed number.
Suzy made it first and grabbed me two tickets, which I promptly paid her for. I have my second ticket to another friend, “Maggie,” with whom I planned to split the cost of a hotel near the concert arena.
Flash forward to two weeks ago: Maggie has to cancel. She sells her ticket back to me and I begin a desperate search for someone else who can come with and help split the hotel cost. The search was unsuccessful, so I sell the ticket secondhand for the cost of the hotel room - which was $300-$500 less than the ticket was actually worth.
Suzy is aware of all this because I’m giving her a play by play. We had separate uses for our tickets but still planned to sit together. She says nothing about my efforts… Until AFTER I’ve sold my extra ticket. Now, suddenly, she’s saying she basically sees it as though she gifted me a precious family heirloom, which I turned around and pawned. She claims she had “buy back rights,” that she considers all 6 tickets hers and my two as gifts (that I paid full price for as per our arrangement), and that I’ve taken advantage of her time in queue even though I spent the same amount of time in queue as her and it was the luck of the draw she got there first.

2023.06.07 13:32 JuneFernan The Monologue of Sir Andrian Mikhail Dazdraperma

Scene 1
Near midnight in a Midwestern downtown hotel. A lone front desk worker enters to answer a ringing phone. A voice is heard, speaking in a heavy Russian accent.
Hello? Who am I speaking with? June? Hello June, this is Mr. Dazdraperma. I’m sure you know who I am, or your manager does. And we’ve had a good working relationship for over twenty years, okay? I’ve stayed at that hotel every time I come downtown. I’ve brought you clientele from all over the world. And I’m friends with Governor Pritzker—or his father’s brother, who I had a working relationship with many years ago, the late Jay Pritzker. You know who I’m talking about, right? He helped me get this business started, and it’s not a huge company, but I’m proud of it, okay? And listen, you have the crew arriving soon right? Who is the captain of the crew? He’s coming in just a few minutes now, maybe even while I’m still on the phone with you. I have it written here. I don’t know if I can say this. Captain Alfonzo-Romano, or however you say it. He’s gonna arrive with his crew. And listen, June, in my thirty years of running this business, I never have ever heard one of my drivers say someone call him a mudda’ fucka’. Never, June. And today, my driver calling me while they’re in the cab. He told me this crew member call him a mudda’ fucka’. And he doesn’t even know why the guy is mad at him. Okay? So who are these HiFly guys that think they can talk to my driver that way? Does that man’s captain know he’s talking to my driver like that? You know I could call the police on these guys. They get in my cab again and call my driver a mudda’ fucka’, I’m calling the police and having them arrested for harassment. And then these guys are not going to have a shuttle to the airport. Okay? So I’m taking this seriously. You tell them I’m going to pursue every path I can to get my justice for this, because in my thirty years, no one ever call my driver a mudda’ fucka’. I don’t know why he even thinks he can say that to my driver. Is it because the driver is African American? I don’t know. He’s got anger problem. These HiFly guys were rude yesterday too. I saw it myself at the airport. And I go and tell the captain, and he’s just laughing. But now they’re calling my driver a mudda’ fucka’, and that’s gonna be the end of it, okay? So, listen to me. This is not your problem, June. I know you have plenty of your own problems to worry about. I know, because I’ve been there. You guys are a big hotel. I stayed there just two years ago, or just before the pandemic. It’s very nice, and I always have a good stay with you guys. And you don’t need to tell your manager about this, because I’m going to handle it. You just talk to the captain when he comes in, okay? You tell him, as soon as he comes in, to call me, because I wanna talk to him, and I wanna know who call my driver a mudda’ fucka’. It was not on this ride coming in, but it was the crew that flew out today, and that’s the same airline coming in now, so that captain has to talk to me before I shuttle them ever again. And you tell him I’m friends with the Governor, and I’m not letting this go easily, okay? And you tell him I never, in my thirty years in this business, ever heard someone call my driver a mudda' fucka'. So he’s gonna have to talk to me, or I’m calling the police, and they’re not going to the airport tomorrow. Thank you so much, June. Have a good night.

2023.06.07 13:18 FantasticDare2515 My Postal ID Story

Hello everyone,
I would like to share my experience regarding my Postal ID.
September 14, 2021: I applied for Postal ID kasi magpapalit na ako ng demographic sa mga government IDs ko. From San Juan City to Muntinlupa City. Since Postal ID is the easiest one to get, ito ang una kong inasikaso. Birth Certificate and Baranggay Certificate lang po ang prinovide ko. Registration Process and Biometrics went smoothly. During this time, hindi po available ang expedite kaya I waited for 3 months po for delivery.
December 2021: I waited for the whole month and walang dumating na Postal ID. I was in a WFH setup during this time and wala po talagang karterong dumating.
January 8, 2022: Nasunog po ang upper section ng Starmall Alabang which is kung nasaan po ang mga government satelite offices nila. Unfortunately, kasama po ang Post Office. At this point, naging selfish na ako thinking "paano na Postal ID ko?"
March 2022: Nalaman po namin na may bagong Post Office na in Alabang, near Sogo Hotel. Nag follow up po ako sa status ng Postal ID ko. One of the staff photocopied my receipt and sabi niya ire-request daw po for reprinting. However, it may take a while daw po since need ng kasabay para hindi raw po sayang sa resources. Okay, I understand. So waiting game po ako ulit.
August 2022: I am now working onsite during this time, sa Quezon City po ang workplace ko. I followed up once more sa Post Office sa Alabang. Thinking na baka na-reprint na ang ID ko, unfortunately wala po silang update. Photocopy ulit nila receipt ko and ipa-follow up daw sa head office.
November 2022: Same thing, wala pa rin. Photocopy ulit receipt ko, to follow-up. But this time, nakausap ko po yung kartero na naka-assign sa baranggay namin. He gave me his phone number para sa kanya na po ako directly magfollow-up which I did. Hindi naman po siya sumasagot until...
March 2023: Back to Post Office ulit for follow-up. I also learned what happened sa kartero. He died around February 2023. This time, sinabi ng staff na stopped daw po ang printing sa head office and wala sila ETA. May isang kartero ulit na nakipag usap sa akin, binigay ang phone number niya, and this time kinuha yung receipt ko. I was hesitant to give it, but he said na mas mapapadali raw kung nasa kanila ang resibo. I took photo of my receipt and took note of his full name.
Until now, wala pa rin po sa akin ang Postal ID ko. Same with the previous mailman, hindi nagre-reply sa text at hindi sumasagot sa tawag yung bagong kartero. I am more worried now because may nasunog na part ng Post Office sa Manila. I know it will cause another delay sa Postal ID ko. I sent email na rin po sa Post Office and sent message sa FB page nila but wala sumasagot.
I have a few questions regarding this experience hoping anyone here have an answer since ang Post Office ay hindi sumasagot:
1) Can I just ask for refund and magapply at biometrics na lang ulit? 2) Paano po yung validity period? Going 2 years na po since nagapply ako.
Thanks in advance!

1) Where would be a spot I could get spring water near here? Usually there's a tap somewhere, haven't seen any yet.
2) Do you drink tap water here?
3) Are there restaurants that are more authentic and less touristy, even if they're a little further away?

2023.06.07 11:57 mArKoLeW My dreams seem dumber and dumber the more time I spent here

DISCLAIMER: I am no professional and trying to educate myself on the go.
Hi, I started to plan a homelab for myself and did quite a lot of work on that so far. Planned nearly everything out and am currently looking for HW and starting to feel down. I layout out my future rack (left is front, right is back) and noticed it's going to be expensive but that's fine as I am going to do it modularly so step by step. Even though it's going to stay in the planning state for quite some time as I want to do it properly and not spontaneously.
In general, I want to have something like a "three node" setup (one node optimized for cpu power for tasks like virtualization and for example cfd, one node for gaming and GPU accelerated computing, and one "node" [consisting out of at least 3 low power nodes] for HA and serving services like DNS, pihole, website, etc) The Diagram is quite complicated but you maybe get the idea. I want to only have the HA nodes running all the time and powering up the "bigger" ones only when I need them.
My main focus for hardware is the ability to scale the "power" nodes up. So a great mainboard in which I could for example easily put more and more ram or more GPUs without having to change the mainboard. Feeling like "Oh I need more RAM" Okay just buy it, put it in, and be done without the overhead of needing to change the mainboard and so on. The goal is to make them more overpowered as money finds its way into my pocket.
What I am struggling with now is finding suitable hardware for that purpose and it makes me question the whole project. So I just thought I could share my progress so far with planning, maybe a lil sanity check, and some recommendations on trusted stores for used commercial-grade server components to get the motivation up again. Also, a lot of concerns in posts on here about noise and heat, and the classic only get what you need is stressing me a bit out. So as I plan and read on here I feel more educated but also more delusional about my project.
Also how much did you guys plan and how did you cope with struggles while doing so? Or did you just go with the moment?
If someone feels like talking about it on maybe discord or sth I would be more than happy about that.
Just for fun here is my network diagram but I don't think that is important. I am going to try to realize it with Proxmox and VLANs.
Please ask for any more information you want/need and give feedback on my post itself.
By the way, I see the whole planning and homelab as a hobby so I am not interested in rented or cloud solutions.
So please share your thoughts if you have time and maybe I get a great new idea.
