I don't even know how to begin writing this but here goes.
I'm tired of not being able to make new friends. I get nervous, I'm in my head all the time and I'm afraid how people perceive me. I never had a girlfriend I'm about to turn 22 at this point it's embarrassing. I want to make new friends! I wanna be that outgoing guy but I don't know where to start.. I don't wanna be a loser. I don't want this. I want people to like me. These thoughts torture me everyday I get so frustrated it's tiring... What should I do where can I get help.....

2021.10.18 22:14 Danny_rayburn1974 I think this is a $300+ stock so long term hodlers have nothing to worry about. Just have a horrible feeling we’re going to see $16-18 (so around $600-700M market cap) until a week or two before first earnings. Any pumps we see right now are most likely day traders. That’s why GREE fell so fast.

A high quality pellet/stick burner combo smoker?
Majority use for me would be pellets, especially for longer smokes, but I would love the option of a more manual smoke sometimes
I know most of you would say buy both.. but one would not get nearly as much use
I had a YS640 that I LOVED, but sadly I sold when I moved cross country

2021.10.18 22:14 vibenta 20 charisma vs Resilient (CON) at level 4
Hello all, I’m looking for advice to inform my decision for level 4. This is my first game rolling for stats in a while (usually do point buy) and my spirits bard ended up with 18 charisma and 15 constitution at level 1. For other considerations, we’re playing with gritty realism rules for resting (1 week long rest, 1 night short rest). Also, I’m the only spell caster in the party. So that definitely impacts things like bardic inspiration. What would you recommend I take at level 4? Either option would be in character.

2021.10.18 22:14 MaaDFoXX 2021 Complete Bingo Card Review - Row Four Mini-Reviews
I've just finished my 2021 Bingo Card, and will post mini-reviews for each of the rows in separate posts. I can't promise that the reviews are spoiler-free, hence the tag.
As well as the mini-reviews, I have provided a rating out of five, for each book. A 5/5 represents a book that I think is exceptional, and would happily keep on my bookshelf. A 4/5 represents a book I think is very good, that I would buy, but probably ultimately wouldn't keep. A 3/5 represents a book that is okay; I wouldn't buy it, but I would perhaps borrow it to read. A 2/5 I would not recommend reading. A 1/5 is a truly ghastly book that is a waste of organic material.
Of the 25 books read for this Bingo Card, I rated 5 books 5/5, 4 books 4/5, 11 books 3/5, and 5 books 2/5.
Now, on with the reviews!
Row 4 Books:
Latin or Latin-American Author Mexican Gothic
- Latin or Latin American Author - Mexican Gothic by Silvia Moreno-Garcia
- Self-Published - The Sword of Kaigen by ML Wang
- Forest Setting - Kings of the Wyld by Nicholas Eames
- Genre Mashup - This is How You Lose the Timewar by Amal El-Mohtar and Max Gladstone
- Has Chapter Titles - Age of Swords by Michael J Sullivan
by Silvia Moreno-Garcia
Mexican Gothic has all the hallmarks of a literary classic. An incredible atmosphere, distinct characters, and subtext and symbology coming out of its figurative ears. Taking cues from such works as Daphne du Maurier's 'Rebecca' and Guillermo del Toro's 'Crimson Peak', Mexican Gothic tells the tale of Noemi Taboada, a Mexican City socialite who is sent by her father to find out what the hell is going on with her cousin, who now lives with her husband's family in a Gothic Mansion in the middle of nowhere, and appears - through letters she has sent - to be decidely not herself. This is the setup, and what follows is a psychological horror show, Noemi having to contend with a hostile family who have lived in a particular type of stasis for so long, that she is seen as an invading bacteria on the immune system of their lives. At once a ghost story, an examination of colonial subjugation and the blood and bones that legacies are built upon, and a commentary on class and gender, Mexican Gothic is a thoroughly enjoyable read that lives long in the memory.
Rating: 4/5 Choice Quote:
She thought that men such as her father could be stern and men could be cold like Virgil, but women needed to be liked or they'd be in trouble. A woman who is not liked is a bitch, and a bitch can hardly do anything: all avenues are closed to her. Self-Published The Sword of Kaigen
by ML Wang
The Handmaid's Tale. Assassin's Quest. And now, The Sword of Kaigen. I was quite honestly not prepared for the emotional turmoil that this book threw at me. I mention Atwood's and Hobb's landmark books here because, for me, The Sword of Kaigen will be joining them in the part of my bookshelf I like to call 'Exquisite Masochism corner'; books that I am so, so thankful that I have read, but that I am not in a rush to read again anytime soon. The Sword of Kaigen is beautiful, in its deft descriptions of pain and longing. In how it deals with expectation and tradition, and how loosing oneself from the grasp of both is never an easy thing. Misaki, a woman who has had a taste of the world but is relegated to a small part of it for the rest of her life, takes centre stage here. We watch her grow, and we feel every lancing moment of pain that she does. M L Wang has done a remarkable job with this book. I thank her for its existence. It truly is a thing of beauty, and I can't want to see what she does next. Please read it, but be prepared to have a lump in your throat for almost all of it.
Rating: 5/5 Choice Quote: There are quite a lot that sent me reeling, almost all of them contextual. I elect for the simplity of the first one to stun me. Setsuko
: "I said, you're not a disappointment. You couldn't be if you tried." This is in response to Misaki informing Setsuko about her miscarriages, and her feelings of self-loathing around them. It's on page 15 of a 600 page book. Prepare yourself. Forest Setting Kings of the Wyld
by Nicholas Eames
Kings of the Wyld, the first in Eames' purported The Band trilogy, is a straightforward quest road-trip romp, as we follow an aged band of mercenaries through icy mountains and an eldritch forest to liberate a besieged city and save the band leader's daughter. The heart of the book is Clay Cooper, the level-headed former merc who longs to own an inn with his wife and daughter by his side, who gets pulled back into 'one last job' because of empathy. His lifelong friend and band leader, Gabe, wants to reunite the band and rescue his daughter from a besieged city halfway across the continent. Although reluctant, Clay knows what it would feel like if the shoe were on the other foot. Come hell or high water, they'd be making tracks, even if it's a suicide mission. We are told it's a suicide mission. It really should be - these are retired mercs, who don't have the reflexes their younger selves have. Ever seen a boxer past their prime fight a young and hungry fighter? Often doesn't end well for the former. And yet, there really isn't ever a sense of peril in the story. Even when things look bleak, to the characters, we - as readers - feel as though it's all going to be fine. The book wants to raise the stakes, but the tone just doesn't allow it. This is a fairly lighthearted tour of set pieces and, while enjoyable in the moment, doesn't really do anything new or particularly exciting.
Rating: 3/5 Choice Quote:
Home, for Clay Cooper, was not within the boundary of any realm. It wasn't Coverdale, or a house at the end of a long road. Home was where Ginny was, its boundaries defined by the circle of her arms. Hers was the hearth in which his soul burned, unquenchable. Genre Mashup This is How You Lose the Timewar
by Amal El-Mohtar and Max Gladstone
Billed as a romance told through epistolary form (letters) between two rival agents engaged in an interdimensional Forever War, you'd be forgiven for thinking that this may be a somewhat more optimistic endeavour than Joe Haldeman's classic. While it is optimistic, there are also a tonne of issues with it - namely, that this is a romance meets sci-fi tale where the romance feels forced and the science fiction is just fiction. First the setting: Red and Blue are the (somewhat) individual offshoots of two separate hiveminds, one biological the other technicological. These hiveminds send their agents through time and space across multiple parallel universes in order to secure their best possible futures across all universes. As such, these hiveminds are multi-dimensional beings, where events that we would observe occurring in different spatial and temporal locations happen instantaneously for these hiveminds. Past, future, x, y - all rolled up. The problem with this is translating their actions into linear time, for us temporally fixed little beings. As these entities are masters of time and space, it stands to reason that the occurence of both Red and Blue separating somewhat from the collective and gaining independence is NOT accidental. This has been purposefully done, and so everything we read in the book will already be known by Garden and Commandant (the hiveminds). While we can quite happily see Red and Blue go through their journey (as they are avatars of the hiveminds existing solely in four-dimensions while they are separated, so will experience the linearity of time as we do), it makes no sense that Garden and Commandant should every try to stop them. This is why they were created, to learn, experience and form something new, bringing the two hiveminds together. This brings me to the issue of why any two alien hiveminds that are so very alien would want convergence, unless they saw their inevitable mutual destruction otherwise. But then, why would you send Red and Blue? Why bother with this convoluted overture? All of this I could forgive if the central romance between Blue and Red made up for the underlying conceit. But to me, it just falls flat. What goes from a bemused admiration very quickly turns to love, with no notion to how we really got here. Foregoing the age-old 'show don't tell', we are simply told that 'I love you, I love you, I love you'. Now, considering the characters, I believe that you believe that you love each other. But really, you are just in love with the notion that you have the capacity to love (how novel!). The romance between Red and Blue might be one that they believe in, but it's not one that I want to read.
Rating: 2/5 Choice Quote: Red, to Blue
: It's amazing how much blue there is in the world, if you look. You're different colors of flame: Bismuth burns blue, and cerium, germanium, and arsenic. See? I pour you into things. Has Chapter Titles Age of Swords
by Michael J Sullivan
I am a recent convert to Michael J. Sullivan, having only read (prior to this) the first in his Legend of the First Empire series. That book was like a breath of fresh air, a decidedly Tolkien-esque tale that set the stage for a world-changing war between the dominant race of the continent (Fhrey) and men (Rhunes), the latter seeing the former as Gods, the former seeing the latter as something akin to livestock. I loved Age of Myth for how it built a vivid and (largely) compassionate cast of characters, and how self-contained it was. The pacing was superb, with the ending being that very deft of handlings that came as a shock, but in hindsight shouldn't have been, such is the keenness of Sullivan's writing. While I felt that Age of Swords was, at times, a bit on-the-nose in terms of writing (specifically Roan's numerous inventions that echo humanity's own inventions, such as the wheel, the bow and arrow) that seemed a bit too 'hey look, this really is the dawn of civilization'. It just seemed a little off to me, as I truly doubt such a well-spoken civilization, with its apparent politics and way of life, could have come so far down the road without inventing the wheel or a basic alphabet (even if pictatorial). Despite this gripe, Age of Swords is a worthy successor to Age of Myth, with a couple of wonderfully emotive moments that make you want to keep reading. Tonally, I consider the series so far to be straight-up myth-telling. There is danger, there is loss, but it's never too dark. It is a lighter, but no less fascinating, read when compared to much of what is being produced. I will definitely be picking up the third book in the series.
Rating: 4/5 Choice Quote: Suri (who else)
: Once you're a butterfly it's impossible to go back to being a caterpillar, even if you want to. You're stuck with those wings, and you have to fly away, and life stops being a simple thing of inching happily along leaves and eating in the sun. Life becomes something else entirely.
Main Takeaways: I will finish off The Legends of The First Empire series shortly, and will be diligently on the lookout for ML Wang's next novel.
