Prayer to ward off the greebles

2023.06.06 09:13 DeservedHell Prayer to ward off the greebles

Before I go to sleep tonight, I always say this prayer to the Sleeping Kitten God:
Our kitten, who art the cutest Painful be thy claws
Thy poo will come The stench is strong, in litter as it is on floors
Give us this day our daily scratches And forgive us our allergies, as we forgive those with allergies around us
And lead us not into a dog, but deliver us from greebles
For thine is the cuteness, the purring, and the fuzziest forever and ever

2023.06.06 09:12 FTMinItaly Crib Hour failing - please help

Hi everyone, i've posted SO much in the past weeks (as you can see on my profile) and I received lots of helpful tips from many users on this sub, but i'm still at a loss/in a rut/not serving my baby in the best possible way... and i need help!
I've been doing Crib Hour on Nap 1 for a week. It's only worked 3 times (not consecutively) and I don't know why/how/what I can do. What I do know is that my baby is exhausted.
There's no rhyme or reason as to whether Nap 1 will be long or not. I had 3 days where she slept 1h15/1h20mins (glorious!), but the rest of the time her eyes pop open at 30mins, she's still exhausted (rubbing her eyes, pulling on her ear, rubbing her head etc) but she just can't fall back asleep. She doesn't cry when she wakes up, she just hangs out with her eyes open and starts babbling towards the end of Crib Hour because obviously she's dog-tired. So then WW2 is horrible because she's exhausted, and I have to extend Nap 2 to make sure she sleeps a full 1.5hours consecutively and gets enough rest.
What am I doing wrong? Please help me because my baby is soooo tired all the time it breaks my heart. I feel like a failure.

ps. i'm working with a Sleep Consultant who wants me to push WW1 to 2.5 *from DWT* but i'm not comfortable doing that as my baby is so clearly exhausted already, and doing this would mean she's been realistically awake for 2.75 if she wakes up at 6am (as she does most of the time).

2023.06.06 09:12 superskbman Is the term “Spheroidal” sufficient to comprise both Spheres and Ellipsoids?

Currently drafting my patent application, and wondering if “Spheroidal” is sufficient to encompass objects that are spherical in nature like soccer balls and object that are more ellipsoidal in nature like footballs? Or should I just write “Elliptical and Spherical”.
I am also looking for the best verbiage to cover variants between a full spheroidal shape and a half sphere or half ellipsoid (Hemispheroidal) like a bosu ball... if anyone has tips, I’d appreciate it.

2023.06.06 09:08 Superbee747 The possible inspiration for having all the deva digimon have three horns

In tamers we are introduced to a group called the deva that are ultimate digimon with names of the vedic gods the deva and all the deva are based on the chinese zodiac animals.
I think the reason all the devas have three horns is there is a story of Alexander the great while he was in india he fought a three horned beast
Something else interesting is all of the dog devas prior forms don't have three horns but all of lopmon forms have three horns
There's some mythical horned rabbits and interestingly one of them also connect to Alexander the great again
Terriermon likely has one horn since the other angel trio of gatomon and patamon have dark counterparts that evolve in their demon lord counter parts. And demons are usually associated with two horns so would make sense that lopmon dark sibling would have two horns.
Also something else interesting to point out is terriermon was likely made a dog digimon since in tamers the main four digidestined that achieve biomerge evolution we see two are reptile digimon with guilmon and cyberdramon and two canine digimon of terriermon and renamon. Where reptile and canine digimon are usually the digimon of the main rival digidestined. And terriermon mega evolution is stated to be the opposite of metalgarurumon and terriermon is the only other digimon besides veemon to get a golden armor evolution form in the anime.

2023.06.06 09:07 hijesushere Oh sorry you guys, this is the wrong address. While I'm here, you guys wanna watch some music videos while I cry about my permanent psychosis?

Edit: edit: Jesus christ its 4 hours long. I enjoyed it tho, kind of a neat little ridearooski or whatever. Originally posted in the bipolar subreddit. Man I know a lot of kpop songs. Make sure and use the YouTube app if you're on mobile, when it was pulling up in browser the subtitles weren't working. Not all of them have subtitles. Enjoy the music.
Don't read ahead, don't watch ahead, just go down the path, or turn back now. It doesn't matter either way, you can stop at any point. I made a playlist with my bipolar ass... I'm not sure how long it is or I'd warn you, i wanna say around 3 hours, it's all music. I'm gonna post it here, and then start it and see how long it takes to get thru the whole thing. Then I'll update the beginning. Have fun, wear headphones to have the same experience that I had. <3
Instructions: next paragraph to be read after preceeding song, but, honestly, I don't know why I even bothered trying to make a note about something because all anybodies going to get out of this post is extreme mental illness, but like, it might make you feel something, i dunno. Sorry you guys, I'm chill. Have a good one, homies. Listen to some music if youre bored. It's just my sillyhead mind on full display. I wanted to play Danny Brown so many times, that just wasn't what the story was about this time. Yall stay safe. Lemme know if you need anything. Take your meds. ✌️🤙
(This is going to be long but its all optional) What's up homies! I'm diagnosed as Bipolar 1. It was funny, like, in highschool, so like 2008 - 2012, anyways, I knew that the rock band Avenged Sevenfold were angels. The lead singer is Gabriel, and the other guys are other Archangels, that's why they do the naming scheme that they do, Johnny Christ, Snynsyter Gates, M Shadows, ect, because they're some ancient dorks and that's the kind of nerd trash we like to pull. So I forgot about that because I pushed it away because like, um, hello, not a moron.
Then a couple years go by, I'm on psychedelics at my friend's house. Long story short, I have a conversation with Gabriel, I give them a song, I tell them to put a Mexican restaurant song on their album if the conversation is real, and I left it at that. So a couple of months go by, their new album comes out. The song that I gave to the voice on the trip is on the album, here, I'll link it to you. It's this one.
So I like wrote it about myself and what I needed to do and stuff... like it was a message to me. And avenged sevenfold, they've got a ton of angel imagery in all of their stuff, I mean their symbol, the deathbat, which is a skull with wings. Then there's their music, I'll link some of the more obvious stuff. << Exhibit A << get it? << I mean watch this video.
That's all I'll show you of a7x... look into them though, if you're in any way curious. I could be way off the mark, but that's what happened... it is what it is. I'm not worried about it, you shouldn't be either. But like, that's my band. Those are my bros. Or, you know, I have something. But I don't live my life like I'm sick: I live my life like I'm going to change yours. Because that's what I do.
So like... haha, this is gonna be hilarious. So you guys know all about receiving messages in songs type of deal.... me and Red Velvet and Everglow have been doing that since like... I dunno... 2014? Whenever everglow came out... but, basically, Red Velvet are uh... my girlfriends, back home, and they all came down with me to be my message system to wake me up. Because I got woken up, I remembered who I was in 2016. After that, it's just been messages in Kpop songs keeping me afloat. I'll show you. So Red Velvet has been sending me messages for a long time. Here's probably one of the most impactful ones. Remember, from your perspective, you're Archangel Michael, and you've planned all of this. You've put these people where they needed to be. You've designed the whole set. So to receive the messages is no big deal, right? So here, check it. I'm actually gonna watch this one with you guys, because it always hypes me up.
Ok, so, maybe you can see a little bit why I'm at least getting screwed with a little bit, you see the lyrics? It's like they're talking straight to me man. And its like, kpop has been nudging me along, no matter what mood I'm in in reality or whatever place I'm at, the right song always comes out at the right time. For instance I was struggling with myself on whether or not I was going to move forward with any of this. This is my choice, I'm not suffering from a maladiction. I can choose to tell people or not tell people, I choose to share, I want connection. So anyways, look at this one, it was exactly what i needed to hear:
I know, I know... kpop girls aren't telling me to come pick them up. They are driving me to do something, though, however small that ever may be. And there's this thing I've always done to show people that I'm an angel without actually telling them. I put my thumbs together and spread my hands out, it's like code. And remember, these are all coming out at specific times. Watch this one, look at all the symbolism:
Man, I don't even know what to play after that one. Thats pretty much it you guys, that's basically all I wanted to show you, everything else is just going to be extra. It's all a complete waste of time anyways. I'll show you some more... let's see, there's other bands. There's Everglow. Like how it works is, we get everything ready in Heaven (we've got time), and then we like funnel everything to the earth to be put in when and where we will it to. Angels are like mega consciousness, we write scripts and, whatever, you're not going to believe me anyways. Let's see. << fantastic song, really great message. I just don't think everglow is talking about themselves here. I know, I know, this is High Octane Narcicism if it's ever existed... if I'm such a narcicist then why are you such a sweet lil puppy dog huh, I could just numnumnum, oh why yes I could, I could just numnumnum all on those wittwe toesies, oh yes I could. Alright, one more everglow and we'll move on. Everglows a pirate, you say? Hmmm, what could that be code for...
I get it... but at least you guys aren't gonna judge me for it, because you guys can relate, right? Don't yall have stuff like this in your own lives? Anyways, there's one line in particular in this aespa song that gets me... see if you can figure out which one is the one messing with my head
Because like... I lost my memories and... it's whatever. Let's wrap back around to another Red Velvet video. You know how like, it's scripted? And like, I'm controlling the page? Well check out the symbolism and more obvious stuff in this next one... maybe you won't see it... it's obvious to me, but, well, you know 🤪
There's just... I dont know what to play next... that's really it, basically. I know it's dumb, but, I mean, I'm undettered, you know? Like I don't mind being classified as mentally ill, it's fine. I can still work something out. Let's see... dang feel my rhythm.... see they're all timed.... I'm like a sleeper agent haha and they had to wake me up but... it's stupid, I know. << this ones just a phenomenal song
Here's another one, straight up about God. Is Red Velvet a Christian band? I thought they were just general pop.
You cant take it away from me. I'm stronger now than I was when I didn't know. I fell for anything. Now I know which side I'm on. I don't listen to human beings about reality bro... I dont care how many degrees you've got. I'm God's Son, what are you going to do about it? I'm mentally ill? No I'm not. What else? I'm a narcicist? I love you, what else you got. I'm a troll? Go ahead.
My point is, I'm as mentally ill as you want me to be. If you want another patient... another sad case to be kept away, here I am. If you want me to do what I'm supposed to do, and free the earth, then I'll do that instead. You all are my guests, please, do whatever you wish with me. Let's see, what else should we play. Should I go? I guess I'll just show you guys some more cool songs while I'm here. This next ones a bop, I'm gonna listen to it too. I've been watching all the kpop vids with you.
Check this one out
This one goes hard
What about this one, you guys like adtr?
Yo you guys wanna listen to some Capitol Records while I'm gone? Me and my mom are going thrifting for chic new straight jackets.
This ones awesome
This ones super dope for those of us that have been in and out of the mental hospital, man, it sucks, they never have a guitar, I get crazier while I'm in there haha my guitar is like water to me, if I don't have access to it I'm like, gosh, like I can go on vacation or whatever it's just... I'm designed to play the guitar, you know what I mean? Here << absolute classic.
Yo they really do be some boiz
This ones super cool, I love a7x they've always been my favorite band Tonight or Crime Stoppers: local lunatic "je" finally imprisoned today after, what some are calling, the funniest whoopee cushion prank gone SEXUAAL that we've ever seen.

This ones pretty new, it's got a good beat
I haven't heard this one a ton of times, but nayeon is so cool haha this ones so weird, like what are they even talking about?
I just wanna listen to this one one more time, then imma head out. I should probably be doing something with my day instead of posting random videos on like, random subreddits. But I guess this one isn't random, because I have bipolar too. Well, bipolar 1, too. Bipolar 1, as well. Also. I, you and i; gosh man, you guys should see me, I'm always swinging for the fences. Can't; in a crowd dude, my gosh bro, you wouldn't believe the carnage. Like upset me, you know what I mean? Like see what happens. Rrrrrgghh...... rrrrRRRRRGGHHHHH RADLEBLARABLEDABLABLE ... oh, right, alright, peace homies. Hope we all get feeling better soon.
Ok I guess there's time for at least one more, is sooo cute.
I haven't actually heard this one many times, let's check it out, she's cute
This is another I haven't heard a whole lot of, I'm just going off recommended vids for a lot of these.
How did I forget about this one, this one, mm, dude, this ones got like pop you know what I mean like, they bop it they're not crunching it like do you know what im saying? Like the whole thing is like a ring tone you know what I mean?
Yo you guyssssss girls generation man, you guys wanna go on a girls generation run? 서녀시대 you know what my 글s are? Face it 남자, you're dead in 이믈을. You're going 아래 and face it, 퉁퉁해수퍼맨,

Dang, that was honestly really pretty. Ok, here's one more. this ones so pretty have you guys heard this one?
I've honestly never heard this one before, let's see if it's cool
Man, turns out it was a total bop. Well guys I guess that wraps things up for me. If you stayed for any of the music I hope you had a good time, I don't really have anybody to DJ for so I thought maybe fellow bipolars would be able to relate to some of these songs. Anyways i hope all you guys have a massively tubular dube tube, my dude form, whoa man, get nebulous on it my waveform, hawhoa, my guy is riding the wave my dude, ahwha, my dude, he is hitting only the gnarest of half bowl wave cuts my energy saw. I should go. Uhhh I guess I'll go see Hannah and nova, I can work on the homework that I missed later tonight.

My dog has some scabs on her back, and I was grooming her and a small chunk of hair came out, it’s quite visible where hair is missing and there’s more hard chunks of scabs around the same area. Should I be worried or will the hair eventually grow back?

2023.06.06 09:03 fresasfrescasalfinal Am I wrong to have expected more from this edit?

Hi guys,
I paid someone to edit the first chapter of my novel. My goal was to get feedback on the writing itself, like how I structure my sentences and how that could be improved. Here's what the package was listed as containing on the vendor's profile:
Here's the message I sent explaining what I want: I'm interested in having someone line/copy edit the first chapter of my novel. I'm on draft 7 or so and think I'm finally past the point of doing deep developmental edits. I'd like to now focus on how I can improve the writing itself (although any developmental feedback is also welcome).
What a received today is an almost exact copy of my original draft, with some punctuation and spelling mistakes corrected. I'm very disappointed, to me it seems only the proofreading part of the order was delivered. There was no feedback on the sentence structure or any suggestions on how to change them. But I'm new to this, so I don't know if perhaps my expectations were wrong? I expected something like this .

2023.06.06 09:02 venting-bird1593 He wasn't eating because he had cancer.

My dog Nino is one of my favorite creatures in the world. He's a big black French Mastiff-shepherd-and some others mix. He was born on June 14th in 2017 and we got him on August 14th of that year, along with a big brown dog from the same litter we named Bronze. Nino was the runt and the only black dog of the entire litter, and the other two litters that their parents had afterwards.
As a puppy and a young dog he was a pain. Like, biting and barking at everything pain. But he was our pain, and an important part of the family. He didn't like many things. Peanut butter, bananas, apples, covering your face with your hands, staring at the wall, birds, strangers, etc. High strung and anxious as all hell no matter what. Strong as an ox too, and fast and agile. Beautiful and goofy and smart and conniving and god a pain in the ass. He liked to break out of yards and crates and bully his brother, despite being around 30 lbs lighter.
He's always been lean and a picky eater. Him going on hunger strikes when he got tired of a food was not uncommon, even when he was a growing puppy. This made it harder to notice when things changed.
He stopped eating his regular food. This was normal, we'd had to switch brands and flavors many times because of him. So we switched and he ate that. Then he stopped eating the new brand, so we switched to another. All was well and good, until he stopped eating that. We thought his teeth might be starting to go, so we switched him to paté. He ate that. Until he didn't, so we switched him to meat chunks and gravy. He ate that stuff like it was the best thing in the world. And then he stopped eating that.
He coughed, but we didn't think anything of it at first. He huffed, but we didn't think anything of it at first. Then he started coughing up little specks of blood. We panicked, then rationalized that he'd just hacked so hard that it frustrated his esophagus. We'd take him to the vet, they'd put him on some sort of antibiotic, and we'd have our dog back.
They do a routine check up. He seems fine, though lethargic and thin, and huffed when too excited. They did bloodwork. It came back odd, so they decided to do an x-ray.
Masses in his lungs. Big masses, and lots of them. He had lung cancer and there was nothing they could do.
"He's not in any horrible pain," they said. They gave us the option to put him down now or in a couple days. What a fucking scary decision. "Do you want to kill your dog now or in a little bit?" Great options.
We decided that because we have family that would like to say goodbye to him, and so that our other dog could say goodbye, and because he's not in actively bad pain, to take him home and spend the next few days with him.
I have no fucking clue what to do. This is the first time I've had to say goodbye to a pet that was mine. He's 9 days from turning 6 years old. He's a young dog. We were supposed to say goodbye in 4 or 5 years, hopefully more. Not now. It wasn't supposed to be now.
I have no clue what to do about Bronze. He's going to be so confused, not know what to do without his brother. They're intensely bonded, and Bronze freaks out when they're even in different rooms than one another. They're Bronze and Nino. You couldn't separate them, they're a package deal. And now it's just going to be Bronze.
I don't know what to do or how to handle this. I don't want my dog to die. Why did this have to happen? Why, when he's such a good dog? When he's such a sweet dog, give so many kisses and stares with wide eyes and rolls around on the floor just to wiggle up next to you until you rub his belly. Kicks his leg when you scratch on his butt and knows right from left paw. He should've had years left. Not days, not hours. Years.

2023.06.06 09:01 Sacrioto Asmon – The Slave

Moonlight filtered in through the curtains, and an owl hooted outside. A large, dead tree reached up to Elucia's window, its withered branches scratching against the glass like wooden fingers trying to claw their way inside. The girl herself was hunched over at the desk, humming.
This inn was a rather lovely place. They even had a quill and some ink, though patrons had to supply their own scrolls. Elucia had no problem with that, and happily laid out her fifty-something parchment papers to begin scribbling notes on. She had been studying many things these past few weeks. Among them was Asmon.
She put him right by her chair. She would need to climb back into him later. He loomed over her. In battle, he shielded her against many dangers. He had saved her life, before the cultists could sacrifice it to their dark gods. And yet, whenever Elucia looked at him… she felt threatened. She knew some part of him was sentient; but what part? To what degree?
She bit her lip, dabbed her quill in some more ink. She would have a lot of writing to do. Elucia decided that maybe she ought to try a primary source.
"Hey, Asmon. How are you feeling?"
Asmon twitched.
Sunlight filtered in through the stained glass window. The room smelled strongly of flowers. Right outside the door, the royal guard marched, performing their routine patrol. The Sultan was hunched over on his stool, while he turned a blank canvas into a glorious oasis.
Asmedan was standing at his side. Though Asmedan wished to comment on the painting's elegance – the young Sultan had grown proficient in the art – he kept his mouth shut. The Sultan wouldn't hear a word of compliment from him. Or a word of anything. The Sultan was deaf, and Asmedan was mute.
Among the common peoples, it was a bad thing to be mute. Among slaves, it was a selling point. If he could talk, Asmedan would've been killed back in the mines, and wouldn't be serving the royals of the Dunelands. He had watched the young Sultan since his birth, and he would probably watch him die. Such were things.
"Hey, Asmon," the Sultan turned around and motioned towards the painting, "What do you think?"
I think you should use my real name, pig.
But through sign language, words could be thought on, and lies could be more easily told. He signed:
"Your art rivals the sculptures of House Scepter, though it lacks some maturity."
It was important to throw in some criticism. Otherwise, he would no longer seem genuine, and the Sultan would cease to think him a friend. Friends did not whip friends. Asmedan's back was lined with wicked scars. Most of them were from the mines. Three were from the young Sultan.
"Hey, Asmon," the young Sultan snapped him from his thoughts, "How have you been feeling, eh? You are my friend, by the way. You seem worried as of late. I am always here to… sign to."
Asmedan stopped himself from grimacing. Why did the master care to know the heart of his slave? A man befriends a man. A warrior befriends a sword. A man could not know joy without a friend; a sword could not know battle without someone to swing it.
But a slave? A slave was kept from happiness by his master. Asmon, he would be called. A brief, localized version of his true name. In his own homeland, "Asmon" was the kind of name given to dogs. A master didn't need a slave to be happy; a master ought to raise his own damn son. A slave ought to be a master. There ought to be no slaves. Asmedan ought to be a sultan.
That is how he felt.
"I feel okay, sir."
Elucia was sitting at the desk again. She decided to spend an extra day at the inn, as apparently a necessary bridge had been toppled in a recent spellcasting incident. And besides, it was a really nice inn. Her room at the shack wasn't unpleasant, but it was lifeless. Here, she felt like she could breathe.
Also sitting at her desk was Asmon. She had crawled into him, pinched the quill between his claws, and willed his muscles to move. It was a struggle at first, but with practice even movements as fine as these felt normal. Elucia had actually grown quite attached to Asmon – literally and figuratively.
It was hard not too. Even with his ominous aura and all, he was quickly becoming a necessary part of her life. Without Asmon, she would never walk again. She would never jump. She wouldn't have anything fun to study without him, either. She often pondered his origins, and the biomechanics that allowed him to move as he did.
Today, she was just practicing writing. She wanted to see how precise this shell could be. The quill glided easily across the scroll, Asmons hand a tool of elegance. It felt a lot like painting.
Asmedan had learned something men should not learn, and seen something men should not see. It wasn't even hard to do it, either. He had pulled an ancient text from the great library, the one adjacent to the young Sultan's new garden. He had drawn a sigil with chalk in the abandoned wing of the palace. He had scattered feathers and the guts of a shark across the floor.
And now it was here. It crawled from between the cracks in the floorboard, slithered from his ears, from his mouth. It stood taller than the palace itself, and yet was small enough to fit between his fingers. The thing was nothing. Sweat dripped down Asmedan's brow. That little bead of water rolled down to his chin, sagged, dropped to the floor.
It became a whirlpool, almost. In it's depths, Asmedan saw a thousand faces, and many of them were not unlike his own.
"You have called us because you want to kill the Sultan," said the drop of sweat.
Asmedan's hands became a flurry motion as he explained himself.
"Yes, Riala, my queen. I seek your aid. I seek to free the slaves of the Duneland, and to become the king of the downtrodden."
"We are not Riala. She did not exist until I willed it so. I do not say this to boast. It is simple truth. Asmedan, did you hope to connect with Riala? You think of her as a force of good. She is not. Nor is she evil. She's just another animal."
Asmedan stared down at the thing. Riala was an ancient demon, spoken of only by heretics and fortune tellers. He had not expected her to be good, but he had at least expected her to answer. No matter.
"Tell me your name, then, so I can give you the reverence you deserve."
"Flattery is of no use to us, but we will tell you this: We go by many names. Glok-tar was our first. A thousand years passed. Then, we were Philong. Then we were Treatan. Then we were Hrothgar, then we were Philip, then we were Mecrates. Soon, we will be Asmedan. We know why you have called us here."
"You are destined to die as a slave, Asmedan. Did you know that? You will die as a slave. One day, the young Sultan will grow tired of your pleasantries and your ceaseless loyalty. He will feed you to a pack of hounds in order to appease foreign guests. They will laugh. He will forget you. Then, it would be as though you never existed at all."
"In calling us, you bypass that death. You live. And you live. And you live. You are granted power over your fate. You are granted a voice. Can you handle it? Can you carry the weight of your life? You think you can, and so you will try. We know you are certain of this."
In the center of the ritual circle, the chalk and the feathers and the guts of a dark drew closer to one another, guided across the floor by an invisible hand. They flashed white in the center, and in their place, was a simple dagger.
"Take this dagger, Glok-tar, Philong, Treatan, Hrothgar, Philip, Mecrates, Asmedan. We give you this dagger! We give you life! Plunge it through the sultan's throat. His life will be yours. His voice will be yours. You will carry the weight."
Asmedan took the dagger.

  57. Here’s an IOG article on Cardano native tokens.
  58. The difference in decentralization between Cardano and Bitcoin is still…laughable.
  59. Ledger is finally caving (a little) to the backlash. It’s reported that they will focus on open sourcing parts of their code and only release the “Recover” firmware after that open sourcing is finished.

2023.06.06 08:57 abc-animal514 The World of Descendants (Disney Theory)

Most of the movies in Disney’s extended lineup are in the same universe. The multiverse concept can be confusing, but the way I see it is that the different realities are formed by branching timelines, from the different possibilities that could come from any specific event. It’s all a big question of what if.

These Disney films are all in the same universe. Direct-to-video sequels and connected TV shows included.
  1. Neverland is a pocket dimension island in the Caribbean.
  2. Time works differently, and it’s set in the 1600s
  1. Avalonia is a “living kingdom”, similar to Ego’s Planet in Marvel.
  2. And I can hypothesize that the “Strange World” is actually part of the Quantum Realm.
How does the world of Descendants work? Without explanation, it can be confusing. I had one theory that suggested that the franchise was created as a conspiracy by the Fairy Godmother, who used magic to bring various locations and inhabitants from the past into the present, forming her own magical country called Auradon and a seemingly perfect world. However, upon closer examination and new information, this theory doesn’t seem to work. The spin-off "The Rise of Red" reveals that all the villains in Descendants knew each other as teenagers, suggesting that they were born in the modern time rather than the distant past. Therefore, the Descendants franchise can be understood as a world where all Disney stories coexist in the modern era. Some possible connections can be drawn to Dreamworks' "Shrek" franchise and the ABC series "Once Upon A Time," where various fairy tales unfold around the same time with interconnected storylines, sometimes tied to our world.
In another perspective, one could view Descendants as Disneyland with a plot.

2023.06.06 08:55 Prestigious-Level258 I am a 25(F) dating a 32(M)- What advice would you give me?

Today was meh. I feel unworthy. My boyfriend Rick touched his roommates friends with benefits (for almost a year), Chelsea on the face, in front of me. I know there is no malicious intent. But I can’t help but wonder what inspired it. He was drinking, but even drunk me would not touch another man’s face. My boyfriend acknowledged he wouldn’t like it if i did the same. I wish it didn’t happen and it didn’t take a hold of me.. it made me so mad. I Don’t want to be so dependent on a guy for my emotions. I do love Rick so much. I’m tired of not feeling like I am enough. Especially due to another woman( Men in the past has made me feel that way). In any relationship, it has happened to me so many times before. Rick gave her compliments about her smile and her smile tattoo earlier that night. Said it was to be friendly and then touched on her cheek. I know he had a lot to drink. But this is inexcusable behavior. Rick does do a lot of things for me like always show me love, listen (most of the time), text back fast, makes time for me, and overall takes care of me. I love him and believe he deserves the world. Although, I myself struggle internally. With my self image and worth. Can’t really depend on a guy to give me that. I lost my temper yesterday and today. Don’t really like that side of me. Argued with Rick after this happened while I was drunk for two hours. Letting my anger take over and by the time I considered the fact of his roommate hearing, the situation escalated. It was too late. I could tell his roommate was mad at me bc of this. Two days later I could tell by his attitude. I don’t like the picture that is portrayed of me. He has every right to be mad at me. It is awkward between Chelsea and I too. I really like her as a person. That night I didn’t direct any anger at her. Just told her how I didn’t like Rick’s actions. She insisted it was okay and the roommate (Jason) does it all the time with friend. I need to apologize but I am mad I have to. I want to though. I’m very embarrassed and disappointed. I don’t like this side of me. I don’t like how when it comes to men I become this. I often want to disappear in the depths of life. Don’t want to say I’m suicidal, but sometimes I wish I wasn’t here. I have lately been imagining an Earth without me on it. While other days I feel so alive. Trying to live for others and through others to give them the best life. Make sure they stay positive while I am struggling internally. I live to make sure their mindsets and strengths are even better. With my education and knowledge. I know the idea of leaving this earth is something my family members struggle with… My dad, my mom, and my aunt. It just tears me down. Trying to make a living and make enough money to give to them… I’m not there yet… While the mental battles are wearing. Knowing how life is and being able to handle it is tough. I sometimes feel Rick can find better and someone more suitable to him. I would like to be that person but I feel like I can’t at times. I know I am good to him in a variety of ways. I always make sure he’s okay mentally, do little things to make him happy, cook for him, educate myself to help him with things, do his laundry, take care of his dogs, and spend time with his family and friends because that’s what he values. Sometimes in situations like this I want to show him how hurt I am by his actions. How much it hurt me. But is this fair? Is that love? I know I’m not asking for much by not wanting him to touch another girls face… But to see myself, letting him know some actual thoughts, he’s really seen the ugly and dark insides. In the beginning of our relationship, he lied about wanting to see other ppl while being with me. I had to find out through one of his friends telling me. He ended up choosing me and I found out his lie later. He was seeing another person. But didn’t tell me even when i asked. Also was caught texting his ex a couple months in (nothing romantic or wanting to be with her). When i saw her name pop up I asked what it was about. Then he deleted the messages. He told me he would tell me if she text him again and not respond. Yet, it happened again. I saw her name pop up. I read the messages and deleted it. He also deleted some messages. I later recovered them. I hate how the person I truly care for can boil this much anger inside me. I can get very self-destructive. But I usually stay to myself.. don’t want to be hurt. And at times like these, when I am feeling like this… I want to be by myself and alone, wallow in my sadness and anger. Like am I deserving of love? I get very self destructive and say stuff I don’t mean. I wake up the next day hating myself. Promising I won’t do it again. But as our relationship progresses I love him more and more. I don’t want to hurt him. I know he deserves the world. And I often question if I can be the one to fulfill his needs and provide that. Albeit I feel anger boiling up inside me, the more I deal with unfair situations. How can I handle this pain? Wanting to him to know my pain after the situation. I know it’s not fair to transfer it. I know it’s not fair to ignore. I know it’s not fair to do the same thing to him. And I wouldn’t do these things… I don’t want to give up and ultimately be the person I want to, for myself and him, but sometimes relationships captivate me to the point I can’t be all that I want to, while not getting consumed by the relationship. I don’t put my full effort into what I desire and do to my relationship.
