2021.12.08 01:56 goldblo1 How long to study for finals?
I'm a freshman and have never taken a final before. I have 2 next week on Tuesday but haven't really started studying yet. I have the entire weekend and Monday to study, and I hear people start around 3 days before. Should I just begin studying on the weekend?
I have a bunch of projects and assignments due this week, and I'm struggling to even start before the weekend. If you're wondering, the finals are intro to CS and chemistry.
I'm doing pretty well in chem, but I pretty much forgot a lot of the concepts. Should I go back and memorize them again, or should I just skim/quickly review the concept?

2021.12.08 01:56 TheSouthEnder Rewrite the Stars - Part One
Connected to "The Haunting of Castiel Castle". The follow-up to "Haunted by the Memory of You", "Between Hushed Whispers - Part Six" and directly after "With the Sun in Our Eyes - Chapter 15"
"No! No! Noooo! Why did I get pulled out from that reality!?" I trembled as I opened my eyes.
Mar, my quantum computer responded. "The principle source from which all derivations exist has been located." Finally, after so long, I had found it, yet my mind still felt burdened.
"Mar, when do I—" I paused and corrected myself, "When does the Lucas of that last reality lose Mateo?"
"Three days from your point of origin."
"No... three days before tragedy strikes? Already? That day was Thursday, so that would mean… Sunday, how will it occur?"
"Any perceived observation will lock the quantum event in place. As such, it will be unable to be changed."
"Argh!" I screamed in anguish as I placed my hand on my forehead and shook it. As tears cascaded down my cheek, anger surged deep within. "Fuck!" I slammed my fist. Clenching my fists, I raised my gaze. "No, no, no, I'm not going to let that happen. Just for fucking once!"
Once long ago, in my timeline, I met Mateo. A true friend in every instance of the word. He loved me, but I denied his feelings. It took me years to realize how much I loved him, but it was too late by then. He passed away in my arms. I was unable to do anything at all.
For years, I kept his memory and essence in my mind. He haunted me like a ghost. At times, I'd catch a glimpse of him in the mirror. I'd see his smile in the most mundane of places. During that time, I started having these dreams. I didn't fully comprehend it at first. But I was glimpsing alternative realities, almost like stories, that played out in my head.
Then one day, he knocked at my door. I thought I had finally lost my mind. Yet, his ghost reminded me of what I had strived so hard to achieve. I was going to find a way to bring him back. I built an Andriod from my recollection of his memories in one instance. However, in futility, it wasn't the same. I created a virtual simulation in another, but the minor details didn't feel right. Eventually, after many more failed attempts, I constructed a time machine to alter the events of that night.
I went back over and over and over. I suffered through Mateo's loss countless times. Nothing I could do, nothing at all could change what would happen. I needed to think bigger— no, dream bigger. If I couldn't bring him back, then I'd travel to a world where I didn't have to. Thus, I begged my father for a position in his pharmaceutical company that dabbled in fringe science. I became the director of experiments of all kinds and secretly explored quantum mechanics and alternative realities.
For years I painstakingly was devoted my research. I kept it separate and private. My goal was simple: I would find a version of Mateo that was as alone as I was. Even if he wouldn't be my exact Mateo, I'd still pour all of my love into him. Failure after failure did not deter my goal or make my conviction falter, not even in the slightest. In five short years, I built my dedicated quantum computer to traverse all realities and keep my promise. But the truth was much crueler than I could have ever perceived. Because that's when I discovered the dreadfulness of it. I didn't want to believe it. First, I refused to. But the more I came across the events, the more I could no longer deny it.
Across every reality, time, and space, we were doomed. No matter what the Lucas of that reality tried, he could never prevent the series of events from happening. The ones that ended in Mateo's death. It was a multiverse of pain, suffering, and sorrow. It was our Enderverse. Because it always culminated in our end.
The first time I traveled, I arrived in a world devoid of color. Everything seemed so black and white. Because I had traveled too far throughout the edge of the boundaries between the branches of realities, the version of myself was akin to a stranger. But I didn't give up. I continued searching and searching. There must have been at least one reality where Mateo and I had a happy ending. If I could at least see that, maybe I'd had hope for myself.
In another, I arrived where Mateo and I were married. He and I seemed so happy, surely, I thought to myself, this would be the one. But no. I saw how that version's world ended once it was discovered that Mateo had cancer, a painstakingly aggressive one. So strong that in a few months, it consumed him. Leaving me all alone withering away.
In the strangest reality, an eldritch horror had caught on to the multiversal tragedy. It had been moved so profoundly, it preserved them both in a never-ending dream. That was the happiest ending I had glimpsed. Yet it was one where Mateo and I were technically dead.
And now, the last one I had traveled to reminded me the most of my past. That Mateo danced around Lucas, the same way mine did, the night before he perished. It was the most treasured memory I still possessed because it was the one where he confessed his love for me. I sobbed harder and harder at the mere thought. But I remembered I made that Mateo a promise. Whatever it takes, whatever happens to me. I'd protect him and that version of me. I would see that promise through.
"I have located the origin in which all derivations extend," Mar repeated. "Would you like me to calibrate for that reality?"
"Yes," I answered. As Mar stirred, I felt time all around me freeze. The clock on my wall froze, and Mar no longer responded to my commands.
I felt frightened as a disembodied voice spoke. Its voice was like a booming, roaring thunder that reverberated with thousand voices' echoes. "Who dares trespass my domain?"
Before my eyes, a placidly expressionless golden mask appeared with a singular red eye. "So, it is you." His eye squinted almost as if displaying pure hatred.
"What is going on?"
"You have defied the laws of the multiverse by trying to save him."
"Then surely you must understand what I am trying to do. Please..." I begged.
"You may not tamper with what you cannot comprehend."
"I won't allow his death to continue." I declared.
"Most foolish one, you cannot change that which has already happened."
"But it hasn't happened, not across all realities. That is why I sought out the origin, the principal source from which all derivations branch out. Perhaps—"
"No mere mortal may touch the domain of the gods and remain unscathed." It interrupted.
In anger, I cried out. "Who are you!?"
"I am the Ender, the Alpha, and the Omega. The One Above All who guards all realities." A white corporeal shadow appeared from behind, encompassing the mask's body. It outstretched its white shadowed arm. I felt a force push me back, almost as if I was falling to the ground. I was descending onto a dimension of shattered glass, each presenting a vision of Mateo and me. I felt devoured by pain and suffering, seeing how deeply Mateo's death affected each version of myself. I saw more than I ever had seen before, thousands if not millions of visages. I experienced all of their excruciating emotions at once. They screamed out to me.
"Accept the truth of the multiverse. You cannot change what is destined to pass. Heed my warning mortal, or suffer my curse."
Brought back, I shook my head and raised my voice. "No, no, never! Not as long as I draw breath."
His eye demonstrated disgust. "You never change, do you? You are so pathetic. It's inevitable. You cannot save him. You are utterly useless. Flail helplessly as you might against fate; accept that it is futile."
I defiantly raised my gaze towards it. "If you get in my way, I will destroy you."
"I simply despise each and every single one of you. If that is your choice, then so be it." It outstretched its arm, "You will be punished for your impudence." With a simple wave, my quantum computer imploded on itself. Unable to transport me. He raised his hand, perhaps to do the same to me, but he stopped. His singular eye squinting once more, "knowing that you can never save him, is punishment enough. Rot in your endless despair, most despicable one." The mask before me warped itself in an instant, and I was left alone.
That night I screamed and screamed helplessly in anguish until my voice became hoarse. But it had not broken my spirit. No, if he was the one responsible, the one behind everything, then I would stop him. As long as I had my willpower, I could achieve anything I set my mind to. And I did. I spent months recreating what had taken me five years. But this time, I knew what I was facing. I took the proper measures to ensure that I wouldn't be stopped.
"Mar, set the parameters for the origin."
"Parameters have been set," Mar replied.
"This is your final warning. Abandon your misguided task." As I expected, the mask appeared before me once more. Its deafening voice rang in my ears.
"You couldn't possibly understand the lengths I'd go through for him."
"Then perish alongside him." The mask's corporeal white shadow appeared, but it could not move this time. "What is this!?"
"Nice, isn't it?"
"Nothing should be able to interfere—"
"A quantum field disrupter. The first time I encountered you, I theorized you were made up of quantum particles. You stand before in an enclosed space as we speak, disrupting them. Let this be your lesson." I locked my eyes with its eye. "Rot in your miserable despair as I go save the man I love."
"No!" It screamed. "You cannot change destiny!"
"Mar, teleport me to the origin." As the light surrounded me, I arrived at a foreign reality. From afar, deep and sleepy forests and mountains painted the landscape. The grass reached my knees. I felt the air enfold me with fresh crispiness. There was an ever-present enchanting aura that enveloped me. It was quiet and pure and devoid of chaos. In front of me stood a tall tower, seemingly the only form of advanced technology in a rustic grassland.
From its entrance, a man in high-tech armor stood guard. "That's far enough!" His voice echoed through the air.
"What is this reality?"
"This is Shangri-La, a paradise reality without suffering, pain, or death. It is the future of all realities."
"A future without any humans, it seems."
"Why have you approached Ender's domain?"
As I stared at the gigantic tower before him, I pointed. "In there, that's where it operates from, correct?"
He sighed, "Yes, that is correct." Abruptly he removed his helmet.
"No, no... it can't be!" I shrieked.
"I'm sorry, Lucas, but I can't let you pass. The Ender was right. You can't change fate without disastrous consequences. Our hands are tied."
Mateo was standing before my very eyes. It was my Mateo, the one from my reality, his eyes, his facial expressions. I didn't understand how that was possible. "You're my—"
"Yes, Lucas, I am the Mateo from your reality. Plucked seconds before the crash. The Ender sparred me, and he anticipated your arrival. He told me everything and he is right."
"How could you possibly defend that... that... that monster!?" I demanded an explanation.
"Do you see those up there?" Mateo pointed at the arriving night sky. "In this reality, each star up there represents a different one."
"I don't understand—"
"Why did you come here, Lucas? What is your plan?"
I stood silent. But by the expression in Mateo's dark hazel eyes, it seemed like that silence revealed my intentions all the same.
"We cannot change fate. You must live to accept that which is."
"So, you claim it's not in the cards, and fate is pulling you miles away and out of reach from me." I shook my head. "But you're here in my heart, Mateo. You always have been, you always will be. So who can stop me if I decide that you're my destiny? That you're my fate?"
"What if we rewrite the stars? Say you were made to be mine. Nothing could keep us apart. You'd be the one I was meant to find." I nodded. "It's up to you, and it's up to me. No one can say what we get to be. So why don't we rewrite the stars? Maybe the world could be ours, even tonight."
Mateo shook his head. "You think it's easy? To just stand here? Do you think I don't wanna run to you? You don't know how every fiber of my being is screaming, begging to be with you. But there are still so many things you don't understand. There are doors that we can't simply walk through. Moments across space and time, we can't change without severe repercussions. I know you're wondering why and once you find out, you're gonna wake up and see that it was hopeless after all. It's not up to either of us. No one can rewrite the stars. How can you say you'll be mine? Haven't you realized? Everything keeps us apart. What if... what if... I'm not the one you were meant to find? No, it's not up to you; it's not up to me."
I shook my head. "You are the one I was meant to find. There is no one else."
"You know I want you. It's not a secret I try to hide. But I can't have you. We're bound to break, and my hands are tied."
"Dammit Mateo, why must you always be so—"
"Stubborn?" Mateo gave his characteristic warm smile. "You say that about me, yet you're the one who goes through these lengths. Sometimes, you take it too far. In this case, you're the one who shouldn't be here."
"If I'd known that night, that it would have been our last, I— I would have done so many things differently. The words I was never able to tell you while you were alive. I love you, Mateo, I always have, I always will. You are my world, my heart, and my soul. My world begins and ends with you. I have observed how every version of me has utterly and profoundly loved you. How can you say that each version of me has to be cursed to watch you die?"
"What do you think happens?"
"When we die, what do you think happens?"
"I'm not sure..."
"You know? Every atom of our bodies was forged in a star. I think, like a drop of water, it returns into the ocean and continues the cycle and so does my love for you. It reaches across the cosmos, across space and time, and becomes a part of it. It shapes it, like a song etched in your name, a song that carries itself through every reality, every story where you and I meet. But that is why you have to let me go. You must. You have to learn to carry that pain with you and let it go. Remember the good moments for what they were and forget the rest. Move forward. Find the strength I've always seen in you."
Broken by his words, I suddenly remembered the last song played the night before I lost him. "Mateo, once upon a time, we had it all. Somewhere down the line, we went and lost it. One brick at a time, we watched it fall. I'm broken here tonight, and darling, no one else can fix me. Only you... only you. Mateo, you're the only one for me. How could I ever possibly let you go?"
Mateo smiled. "I still remember the look in your eyes when that song played. You know? This feels like a dream. The multiverse and its infinite dreams. I think, in some sense, it's all a dream. There is no concept of time or death. Life is a dream, and love paints it. Love is what connects us all to each other."
"Mateo, why are you speaking like this? It's breaking my heart." Tears started streaming down my cheeks.
"Can you really do it? Can you really rewrite the stars? Our stars?"
"For you?" I chuckled a bit. "I'd block out the Sun and the Moon if I had to."
For the first time since our encounter, Mateo laughed. "This is the version of you I fell in love with." He sighed and closed his eyes. "Okay, I won't stand in your way, just follow—" Suddenly, time froze. Behind him, the golden mask appeared once more, its red eye emanating nothing but wrath. I glanced at Mateo's chest. The shadowy white arm had pierced through it. From its point of contact, Mateo started disintegrating.
"Mateo! No!" I rushed to be by his side, but I was too far. I wouldn't make it in time.
"I love you. I will always love you. Please... don't... hate... yourse—" Mateo's hand reached out to me, disintegrating into a million particles. I lost him, yet again.
"Noooooooo!" I screamed out helplessly. "Why, why would you do something like that!? How could you? You're a fucking monster! He did nothing wrong! Why... just why...?"
"I simply fulfilled his destiny. You still haven't figured it out, have you?" Its arms outstretched to remove its mask. "Don't you see?" As it revealed its face, chills ran along my spine. His eyes, their color, they were undeniable. I couldn't refute what I saw before me and immediately became horrified. Tears swelled, and agony overtook me. I finally realized why my efforts had been thoroughly in vain.
His voice returned to normal, "For all that you plan, you always seem to miss the smallest of details... You're so fucking pathetic. Haven't you realized? Mateo dies in every reality where he meets you. You're the cause. You're the fucking monster. You're the villain of this story. And I would know... because I am you..."

2021.12.08 01:56 PastSad6546 Are CDM particles (that aren't massless) interact with the Higgs field?
Hello everyone. I have a question, but maybe it isn't so simple, but let me try to ask it anyway, because it's not like I know where to find some specialist of this science sphere.
We know, dark matter particles are "cold", that means they're pretty slow compared to the speed of light, so their rest mass is above zero. Does this mean cold dark matter interacts with the Higgs field? And, maybe, it's possible to detect these particles via ground-based experiments using H bosons?

2021.12.08 01:56 KingDouchNozzle How to help a female friend over text
So this is something I've been struggling with for a while now. Yes, I am a man. I have a friend my age (female type) who is comfortable enough that she tells me how she is really doing (as opposed to that lie all of us tell when we say we're good), and I genuinely care about her. I really do want her to be happy and okay, and I really do want to help her in every way possible.
The problem (and where my question lies) is, as a man, my default course of action is to give advice. While I do know that when a lady comes to you with a problem, she does not want advice, bit simply to be heard, and I respect it completely. But I just don't know how to do that over text. I just feel that a message without advice will give of a vibe of apathy, and no text will simply be interpreted as just not caring, despite the fact that I honestly feel happy when I am able to help.
So I guess what I'm asking is, what can I do to be most helpful to a friend in need?

2021.12.08 01:56 Useful_Sale_5665 She broke up with me because we were "moving too fast"
Some context, we're both college students for which this was our first relationship. Me [18M] She[18F]
We basically met last week and really liked each other, so we hung out a lot and did things such as getting dinner and doing work together. We made the relationship official yesterday when I asked her if she wanted to be my girlfriend, and she said yes. From what I can gather, she was really happy and into me and so I was I. Later that evening we both had our first kiss as well, which she initiated.
Today she wanted to talk and basically said that we were moving too fast and the kiss and making it official was too quick for her and so she wanted to end it. She made it clear that it wasn't me but that she wasn't ready for a relationship and was okay to be friends(not sure what that means). She mentioned how she didn't want to lead me on for a long time and wanted to be honest and end things.. She then hugged me, said she's there for me, and we said bye to each other.
I'm feeling completely blindsided as we had been totally happy the past few days and everything seemed on the up. I don't know what to believe about her story and if any of it is even true??
More context, this happened today and we started hanging out around the end of last week.
Additionally, how do I emotionally distance myself from this relationship now and move on?
TL:DR- New girlfriend broke up with me because we were moving too fast? Need advice on why and how to proceed
