2021.10.19 10:40 Josephus_A_Miller The Shot Heard Around The World
Deep within the bowels of the UIF's disjointed postwar military command structure, remnants of the old armies remained. The Imperial Continuity Army, arguably the best organized of all of them, was the predominant institution, although other formations such as the Commonwealth's spread-out armed forces, as well as the Laveskan militia formations, famed for their actions during that country's civil war as well as the raging bush wars in South Kafrica. Among this chaos was one unit that everyone had seemingly forgotten about - the Imperial Vanguard Force.
The Imperial Vanguard Force, or the In-Vitro Fertilizers as they were jokingly called by the rest of the army, was tasked with sabotage and partisan activities within Arcadia pre-Reclamation. Numerous oilfields were burned to the ground, convoys were ambushed, and local rebels were organized. Their most famed action was the demolition of the Osten Bridge, where a column led by famed Canstanan volunteer "Raketa" Duarte sent the largest bridge connecting Aeseria and Newseria to the river below. They would later flee in an Imperial Union submarine that picked them up at the mouth of the Andeus River.
But now they had a new task - attempt regime change in Belka. The Principality was well-known for their volatility, as its vast territories were rather unstable and its government was in disarray. Their military received almost infinite funding, which allowed it to bring to birth such steel abominations as the Eminent Domain-class floating gun battery. After several of these such vessels were sent to the bottom in quick succession by Admiral Vitgeft of the Arcadian, and now Crytilian Navy, the Belkan economy lay in shambles, and its navy was severely shortstaffed. As a result, its government grew more unhinged by the day, and at the head of it all, Princess Elbe of Belka believed that now was the only opportunity for her nation to realize its imperial dreams.
Elbe paid a visit to the New Kalban Republic, whereupon she added her nation to the "Non-Aligned" Movement, being promised the Orinian colony of Hartfordia in exchange for an alliance with the NKR. With the Black League throwing its weight behind the NAM, the UIF began to worry. After all, if the NAM succeeded in their mission, which they very well could, the UIF was next, and without a strong IU to back them up, their odds were not that great. As such, Duarte was to be sent into the country to rectify the situation.
It was reckoned that by taking Elbe out, the Belkans would be forced to follow a more sane leader, one who could throw nationalism to the side temporarily in exchange for taking out the threat to the status quo, the NKR. The mission was buried as an abortive project until the Arvenian airliner incident, which the NKR took the liberty of infusing the tragedy with nationalist and anti-Imperial rhetoric; the IVF's remaining command structure decided to resurrect the idea. As the UIF's command structure was extremely disjointed, nobody bothered to check on the IVF, and no order had come to dissolve it. The few that did not join another branch of service or return to the OAI were generally overlooked as they were so few in number. Thus the UIF's government had no idea the mission was happening until it was too late.
With the stage set, Duarte entered the country and pretended to take a vacation, enjoying Belka's mountains and its Baskay coast, which reminded him of his Canstanan homeland. But after a couple weeks fooling Belkan authorities (assuming they were following him in the first place), Duarte headed north to the Hartfordian border, where Elbe was set to give a speech. The day could not come soon enough, and at last, it arrived.
That fateful morning, Duarte went for a sunrise walk, and then returned to his hotel room to ready his gear. The murder weapon was a Zokesian weapon, an old ZAR-10, as that was the only rifle he could purchase without need for a license of any sort. Elbe was set to give her speech at midday, and as such Duarte headed to what he presumed to be her route to the venue in the morning. However, Elbe's small convoy was delayed, so Duarte took the liberty of going to a local restaurant.
As Duarte walked out of the restaurant, he could not believe his eyes. Elbe's convoy was stopped due to a bomb threat called in by a Hartfordian nationalist. After a protestor threw a Molotov cocktail, the riot police became more concerned with beating up protestors than protecting their charge, giving Duarte the opportunity to make his way to a shop that was supposed to be guarded but wasn't. He quickly climbed the steps and set up on the second floor, unslung his guitar case, and took the old sporting rifle out.
Duarte steadied his aim and sent a shot downrange into the back of Elbe's car. The bulletproof glass cracked, but did not shatter. Pizdec, he muttered, before loading the next round. The next shot seemingly rang true and the glass shattered. He could not discern what happened to Elbe, but there was no time to find out. He ditched his jacket immediately and hastily placed the rifle in the guitar case, sealing it up. He stole an electric bike from a charging station and rode as fast as he could to the Hartfordian border. By the time Elbe made it to the hospital, Duarte was cruising into Chadastok, where he was bound to take a flight to Kafrican Phoenia, and join his next war.

2021.10.19 10:40 welcomeisee12 Accepting current employer's salary match
What are your opinions on when your employer says that they will match the salary of a new job you just were offered?
I was able to get a pretty good payrise and figured that it wouldn't make sense for my current employer to match it. However I did bring it up with them and they said they would match it (~35% payrise).
I had already decided to leave the company, but while them offering to match did make me feel a bit valued, I just felt disappointed that they were completely willing to pay me so much less if I just never wanted to go.
Has anyone here actually accepted a significant payrise match and did it affect the working relationship with your employer?

I feel like I'm just missing something.

2021.10.19 10:40 Evongelion Controlled by deep feelings of loneliness
My (21M) personality has always existed in a weird place between introvert and extrovert. Over time, especially in recent years since I've been out of school, I've managed to work on the social anxiety I have spent most of my life being controlled by. I've made many great friends and expanded my social circles greatly. I've also developed real social skills and would now consider myself as outgoing and friendly towards most people I meet. Overall, in many ways, my life has improved over time, and I am both proud of myself for the progress I have made towards becoming the kind of person I want to be and extremely lucky for being surrounded by such a great group of people.
My dating life however has not seen such success. In fact, if you were to chart my success with women on a graph against what I'd consider my personal progress you'd see that it has actually gone down over time. I haven't had a single relationship since high school. My last relationship, which ended in 2018, was nothing to write home about either. I won't go into it extensively here but I will say it wasn't normal or healthy in a number of ways which lead me to break it off.
Since then I've only had one real thing with a girl and it was at the end of 2019. I don't know how else to describe it other than that it felt like my long-term dreams of many years had come true. We never actually dated, but we had something going for around 3 months. She was damn near perfect, or at least that's how it felt. I'd met her out at a rave one night and spent the whole night getting to know each other. In the following days, we went to a trance festival together which is where things really took off. To this day the 3 days at that festival were by far the happiest of my entire life, and I would give anything to get to experience them just once more. In the end, she started to drift from me. I couldn't understand why at the time, but in hindsight, I determined it could have been for a number of reasons all stemming from either my lack of experience or just oversights on my part. I felt, and in some ways do still feel, like she was the one true blessing of a person that had finally walked into my life and my dumb ass had blown it.
2+ years later and I still think about her every day and miss her immensely. I shouldn't. It's stupid and pointless to feel this way. Getting hung up on the past is never healthy, especially with these kinds of things, and I know that but... what can I do? It feels like I am powerless to stop missing her until someone new comes along, and God knows how likely that is to happen to me for a second time like that.
I've spent years going up and down with how I deal with this. There are phases where I am able to mitigate it and not let it bother me and affect my day. Then there are the other days. The days where I wake up feeling lonely with no one beside me and go to bed the same way if not worse. It has now gotten to the point where after years of riding the wave back and forth I feel like this feeling has finally gotten its grip on me for good. I have come to the conclusion that this insatiable desire for love, companionship, and sex can never be quelled while I am alone like this. These feelings eat at me every day. They permeate through everything I do, every thought I have, every emotion I feel. I cannot escape them, and it is made all the worse by the fact that everyone in my circles nowadays seems to have someone. It just seems... so fucking easy for everyone but me, and I hate it. It feels like despite the leaps and bounds of progress I have made in my life in this way I am still an outcast to those around me. Even masturbation and sexual urges have begun to torment me. One of our most primal and rewarding senses has become to me a prison as it is a blessing for everyone else.
Its at the point now where I don't know what else to do. I am starting to go to the gym regularly and am active on many dating platforms all of which have lead to nothing but more defeated feelings. It is starting to eat at my mental health which has up until now only been getting better over time and I wish I knew how to stop it.
If you actually made it through this wall of text I really do appreciate you taking the time to read :)
This was partly to vent but mainly to get some feedback from you guys for how you would deal with this. Any comments you have to contribute are appreciated and will be read.
TLDR: 21M feeling weighed down by feelings of loneliness and starting to feel controlled by it despite breakthroughs in personal progress over time.
