[Pictures are available on my profile, if you are interested!]


✅ Saturday Palette Review & Pictorial 🤓
➡️ NOTE: the information contained within this post is based upon my research, opinions, and experience. As always, buy/use the products that make YOU happy. Also, none of my stuff is sponsored nor quid pro quo. I do it for fun. NO edits or filters are ever used in any of my posts.
🔺️ PALETTE: Anastasia Beverly Hills - Modern Renaissance Eyeshadow Palette ✌
🔺️ ACQUIRED: purchased myself
🔺️ SELECTION RATIONALE: I received this palette in my May Ipsy, and messed around with it yesterday. I liked it so much, I wanted to have a go at it again today and really put it to the test. I know I love the traditional ABH eyeshadow formula, so I was hoping this would work out to be the same one I've come to know and love.
👁 LOOK CREATED: 'Finger Grunge'
▪️ PACKAGING & DESIGN: 0.7g of shadow per pan, square-shaped pans, custom-wrapped cardboard packaging, bi-fold, palette name & brand is on cover, luxe-weight, magnetic closure system, rectangular-shaped, mid-sized mirror inside, pans are NOT removable with a magnet, shade nomenclature is designated conveniently southwards of each shadow, includes a branded, dual-ended eyeshadow brush
🔊 NOTICE: + measuring in at 0.7g of shadow each, the pans contain BELOW the average amount of product. I don't think anybody would find difficulty in storing this palette. [0/1pt]
▪️ TOTAL # OF SHADES: 14 (all eyeshadows, which are deemed safe by the FDA for use around the eye area). Upon further evaluation, NONE of the included shades stained my skin.
▪️ FORMULA BREAKDOWN [according to my observation]: 4 unique formulas + (8) mattes + (3) satins + (1) shimmer + (2) metallics
Officially, this palette (as professionally described) has: 3 unique formulas + (11) mattes + (1) satin + (2) metallics
▪️ COLOR-STORY DESIGNATION: 'berry-toned-neutral'
▪️ DESCRIPTION OF SHADE PRESS: very soft; recommend doing EYES FIRST to avoid ruining your base makeup with fall-out
▪️ EXTRA PERTINENT INFORMATION: originally launched in 2016, the creative inspiration behind this color-story is the resins and paints of Renaissance art, included brush consists of one blending end and one packing end
✅ ROUTINE DATA CHECK: + not clarified to be 'clean' or 'conscious' + cruelty-free + NOT vegan + 12-month PAO (located on palette)
🔍 COST EVALUATION: (ulta beauty) + 💲 $31.50 / palette + 💲 $2.25 / shade + 💲 $3.21 / gram
• Comparing this palette to similar products available on the market, the price-per-shade is 'AFFORDABLE'. Additionally - this palette has a relatively 'EXPENSIVE' cost-per-gram, as compared to other palettes I've previously reviewed. [0/1pt]

2023.05.28 02:38 YashNemo Question: Is there a classified sub-genre/specific name for this Hip-Hop rap style?

Hello! I'm a fairly new connoisseur of Hip-Hop rap, specifically Hip-Hops' "golden-era" rapping & rap styles. It's so diverse; as of now, I'm currently listening to discographies of the several greats (ie. Big L, Ice Cube, Nas, The Notorious B.I.G., members of the Wu-Tang Clan, etc.. to name a few). I can't help but noticed their complex lyrical capabilities. So my question, is there a classified sub-genre/specific name for this sort of Hip-Hop complexity? In familiar with syncopation, but I can't seem to crack down on their "secret" formula.
For example, you have members of the Wu-Tang Clan, Ghostface Killah, Raekwon, who rap very "encoded"-like. Links to what I'm referring to.
(unsure of the year) Freestyle: Ghostface Killah, Raekwon -
Nas also does this similarly.
TimWestWood 1995 Freestyle (timestamp; 3:45) -
Big L does this similarly later on in his rap career as well.
88HipHop 1998 Freestyle -
The Notorious B.I.G. is notorious for rapping complex-like.
1994 Live Performance, with Nas (timestamp; 1:15) -
Even Mobb Deep member, Prodigy similarly does this so of unorthodox-style rap.
Extortion, featuring Method Man (from their 1996 studio album, Hell on Earth) (timestamp; 0:48) -
Hopefully I can learn a thing or two from the more older listeners & connoisseurs. Thanks in advance!

2023.05.28 02:32 NoGoodGodGames Is formula front a good first AC game?

So I booted formula front up a day ago, and have been enjoying it, and I have some questions.
Does it represent the series well?
Is it one of the better or worse games in the series?
Is it a good first AC game?
Is the gameplay similar to the other games (ignoring the AI mechanic)?
EDIT: I now know that formula front was not a great first choice for an AC game. Thanks for the advice everyone

2023.05.28 01:20 AddressVladimir Don't believe the hate

As someone who has actually played 'Lord of the Rings: Gollum' for about 6 hours, I can tell you that the game is so much better than the bandwagoning hate reviews have made it out to be.
'Gollum' is clearly inspired by the likes of Styx, Thief, Fable, Gothic and many other games of this similar design. The game is intended to be a throwback to these early titles and so the graphical and gameplay decisions are designed to play and look like these as a style choice. The character models have been crafted to look like puppets/claymation in order to emphasize the whimsical world of this Lord of the Rings story.
The gaming industry is review-bombing Gollum as it is an easy target having been developed by a relatively inexperienced games' company. The hate for Gollum is designed to attack classic gaming inspired titles in order to promote current-year, formulaic slop like Horizon, God of War, Last of Us, etc. The hate for a classically-designed game like Gollum is spite for what came before. Games journalists hate older titles because in contrast the slop we have today is mediocre, there is also the monetary incentive from big-budget slop game producers to shit on anything that isn't in their "club".
In short, Gollum is a great game with a lot of soul made by developers who have a passion for classic games and wanted to bring that experience to the modern day. It is being attacked by blatant shills and industry stooges. Pick it up and try it yourself, do not believe the preconceived opinions from these people. Play Gollum yourself and see if you enjoy it, because I certainly am.

2023.05.28 01:04 BabyWrynn Any baby reflux parents on here? I feel so helpless.

My LO is 2 months and just keeps spitting up. It’s to the point where I can’t put him in the bassinet at night flat because he will start gagging, gasping and spitting up every hour. I’ve spent the last several weeks with him against my chest at night just to make sure he sleeps and that I sleep. I know it’s not safe sleep, but being woken up less than an hour after placing him down and having to soothe him over again is breaking me.
I’ve tried feeding upright, holding 30 min upright after, we tried hypoallergenic formula, Enfamil AR (the added rice), and messing with my diet (LO is fed breast and formula). The only route I feel at this point is medication (which his pediatrician has recommended), but I’m so hesitant.
I’m so broken over this. I’m struggling with PPD and this has made it even harder. I just don’t know what to do anymore.
Please, if anyone has gone through this… what did you do? Any success stories?

2023.05.27 23:27 DpressedOrange Advice on a specific situation

Hey guys
I am going through a round of interviews for a job of Logistics/SC Projet leader in Schwitzerland. I have a master degree in industrial management as well as being CPIM and CSCP certified.
It would involve partially dealing with stock monitoring of ramp up and ramp down products that have very deep BOM ( up to 20 lvls ) in the watch industry. This situation is new for me as I only have experience in the rubbetyre industry.
How would you guys go about this ? Is anyone here piloting a portfolio of products with similar characteristics ? Would like to come up with some ideas to the next interview.
Potentially an excel file with a series of formulas that would calculate dynamically the stock norms of each part depending on the constraints. Or a similar tool that would have to be implanted trough their BI.
I am open to ideas and wish you a great day

2023.05.27 23:12 PokemonTrainerLily As a top laner, should I still rotate to the bottom objective at the 7 minute mark?

Hello all. I'm a returning player and used to play before the rayquaza map came along. My question is: should I still rotate to the bottom regis? Do they give you a debuff similar to how drednaw gave regarding damage to zapdos?
Bonus question: does anyone have the damage formula of umbreon's foul play? Does the second dash uses only the attack Stat of the pokemon it hit with the first dash, or does your own attack Stat also influences the final damage?
Thank you in advance

Sale Details
Sale starts: May 19, 1pm UTC Sale ends: May 22, 1pm UTC DEX Listing: May 26, 1pm UTC (DEX TBA)Link to Sale: chain: SUIInitial market cap: $250,000Price: 0.11 SUI per Meadow tokenTokens for Sale: 7,000,000 MeadowSale method: Overflow/Oversubscription (unspent SUI tokens claimable after sale ends)Soft cap: NoneHardcap: 795,970 SUIMinimim Contribution: 80 SUIMaximum Contribution: No maximum because of overflow methodVesting period: 20% TGE, 20% weeklyUnsold tokens will be burned.Non-whitelist and Whitelist allowedWhitelist benefit: Access to a bonus token pool: 1,130,000 tokens ($135,600 @ listing price)
What is overflow/oversubscription method
Overflow or oversubscription method simply means that the more SUI you invest, the more Meadow tokens you will receive, and you will get back your SUI that was not spent. The amount of tokens you receive is proportional to how much you put in and everyone else puts in.This means that just because you invest 1,000 SUI doesn't mean all of it will be spent. Perhaps, maybe only 20% of it gets spent and you get the remaining 800 (80%) SUI back. Again, this depends on the amount you invested in and how much everyone else invested in after the sale.With overflow method, this means that even after 100% of hard cap is reached, users are still allowed to invest. The number of tokens you receive will be calculated as soon as the sale ends.You will be able to claim your unspent SUI immediately after the sale ends.
Bonus Tokens for Whitelist
Bonus token allocation is proportionally given to how much you invested in as well as to how many users invested. (very similar to overflow method)Formula: (Your investment amount divided by the total amount invested by whitelist users) multiplied by 1,130,000 (bonus tokens) = Your bonus tokenThis means that the more you invest, the more bonus tokens you get. You will receive more bonus as well if not many whitelist users invested. See here on how to get Whitelisted (OG role on discord)
Token Distribution:
Tokens purchased in the IDO will be distributed via airdrop at the time of token listing (TGE): May 26, 1pm UTC 20% weekly vesting distribution: June 2, 9, 16, 23 (1pm UTC)

2023.05.27 22:33 CawmeKrazee [TOTK] [SPOILERS] Tears of the Kingdom Doesn't Deserve GoTY, A critique of the Game.

This is gonna have some heavy spoilers. Story and Gameplay. This is the only warning I will give. Leave now or forever hold your piece.
I want to clarify something. You can sing praise for a game but still find issues with it. I love Skyward Sword and A Link Between Worlds. However, Skyward Sword suffers from pacing issues and reusing two bosses as mini bosses later on. A Link Between Worlds suffers from... well.. you know honestly nevermind ALBW is flawless lol (I joke). My point is this though.... Tears of the Kingdom has some really great gameplay and overworld but is very lacking outside of that. I'll be breaking this down into 5 sections. Each section able to score a max of 2 points. 0 points means it fails that category greatly. 1 meaning it did good stuff but didn't blow me away. Gameplay Game Gimmick Soundtrack Enemy/Character Variety Story.
Gameplay - The gameplay is some of the best in the series, the way to explore the overworld and the amount to the overworld is stunning. It's amazing how they fit all of this in one cartridge and then make it run on the technology it's played on. A toaster could play this game. Which is not to knock this game at all. The game has a gorgeous art direction. Which makes up for what "good" graphics are considered in modern times. Traversal in the overworld has never been better in an open world game. Cooking could use help streamlining it if I'm honest. I'd prefer for there to be a menu that opens at a cooking pot rather than having to scroll through a bunch of stuff at the inventory menu. Now here comes some of my main issues with the game... Dungeons - I miss dungeons feeling like they mattered tremendously. rather than being a checklist. I think a reason why people like the great plateau and the great sky island so much is because it's like a miniature version of the old games. They are paced really well and the shrines matter more there because you get a cool zonai hand ability or in other games "items". Which in turn allows you the ability to explore the starting area in better unique ways similar to how when you got a new item in the other games that lets you explore the open world even more. I feel like the dungeons in the game would've been more relative and mattered more if the ability that you got from them was more unique in how it effected how you explored the world as much as the zonai hand abilities. The dungeons felt better than the Divine Beasts.
Combat - The combat for both BoTW and Tears of the Kingdom is probably some of the weakest in the entire franchise outside of the 2d games. Wind Waker you could learn an ultra spin attack. Twilight Princess you learned a multitude of different sword combat. Majora's Mask had different masks of letting you transform into different races to fight as. Ocarina of Time had a multitude of itemsand magic able to be used in creative ways. Skyward Sword had motion control combat which when it works.. it works very very well. (when you get good at it, you can do it very quick) Botw and TOTK - while having a multitude of different weapons... fails to make the combat for them unique. It's the same -dodge- -flurry rush- or -parry- or -Updraft into the sky then bullet time-. You can in ToTK infuse arrows but that doesn't make it feel different from BoTW with the arrow types. I will say the infusing does wonders for some ideas like flamethrower shields and whip swords. However it doesn't feel inherently different from each other or unique enough to be amazing. I'm not expecting Dark Souls or Devil May Cry level combat. I'm expecting at least what other Zelda Games brought to the table when they had 6 years to improve on it. BoTW has the excuse of there's a bunch of different weapon types. However, ToTK doesn't have an excuse for this The only thing I can say is... why is there only one fighting technique you can learn in this game? Why can't you learn from each of the different races/clans. Zora could teach something with spears. Goron could teach with two handed heavy weapons. Rito with bows. Gerudo with one handed swords. Zonai could do something with magic or technology. You could maybe find a hylian training manual that teaches you stuff like the "Ending Blow" from Twilight Princess. Have the Sheikah teach something like Mortal Draw. Make these races feel unique with different fighting styles. Except all we can learn is the Yiga skill. The Gerudo even offer to let you train with them! It just feels like a major missed opportunity. I would've loved the combat to feel special. It's something i get bored with very very much....
Overall Gameplay get's a score of 1 out of 2 points. The overworld is great and exploring is neat. The dungeons are an improvement but lacking in overall impact, and the combat is really leaving a lot to be desired.
Game Gimmick - The Zonai hand is a great improvement over the Sheikah Slate. The amount of stuff you can do with ascend and Recall is crazy. That's not even touch ultrahand and fuse. It's truly great and while i do miss stuff like the hookshot, beetle, and the spinner. I find that zonai hand adds a lot that makes the game last for a long time. The sage abilities are annoying to activate and don't change a whole lot outside of Tulin's ability. Game Gimmick gets a solid 2. I have nothing I can say is bad with it mostly. I could try and nitpick it but I found myself using each ability multiple times. Unlike the sage abilities which i try to use a lot but are annoying to activate.
Soundtrack - I find myself having a hard time remembering any of the songs from both BoTW and Tears of the kingdom. A lot of the songs from BoTW return and a lot of the songs from BoTW were covers/remixes of songs from previous games. I honestly find it kind of lacking. I think they need to stop trying to do the minimalist style and go back to the styles of skyward sword, twilight princess, oot, albw, etc. I can't even remember the boss themes. When I can remember the other games themes for the bosses over this. I expect better out of the Zelda team.
Soundtrack gets a 1. While no song is amazing no song is bad. They are just... not memorable.
Enemy/character variety - The enemy variety is greatly stepped up compared to BoTW and that is great. I like seeing the Gibdos(redeads), the like-likes, the flying monsters, some new undground creatures, horroroblins, gloomhands. All great new inclusions. Although I finding myself still running into 90% bokoblin varients and lizalfos. Which... just aren't really that great to fight. The new bosses are nice but... they all are mechanically the same *hit weak point aka the eye most of the time* *slash them to death*. I'ts been a long time since Queen Gohma from OoT. Can we not get any more creative then that? I liked the temple bosses but the overworld bosses lack interest. I do think that the Molduga got improved since BoTW due to bombs not being able to be tossed onto the sand anymore. Makes you have to think more with how to beat them. The others just... are the same formula. I expect better when the temple bosses are so great. Phantom Ganondorf is dope too btw.
Characters are done extremely well. I do wish almost every character had a unique look at every town and stable. A lot of the characters that aren't story relevant look very dull. I get they are just npcs but the Zelda games are known for the iconic looking characters and i want to remember all of them but some just aren't memorable... which sucks. Still some of the best character work though in gaming when you got characters like Riju, Tulin, Josha, Purah, Robbie. I'm gonna save talking about Link until story....
Overall Enemy/Character Variety get a 2.
Story - This.... is gonna be a very long drawn out discussion on the story. I'm gonna first overlook it as just a sequel to BoTW and nothing else. None of the previous games as there is still a large disconnect between the two when ToTK is meant to be a sequel. The biggest grievance I have (besides Link, which we'll get to him...) is the lack of continuity. Riju hardly comments about the Thunderhelm when you get it from the Yiga. The Divine beasts aren't mentioned. None of the new sages comment about the divine beast helms and how similar they are to them. None of the sheikah tech is mentioned from BoTW why make these new towers when the others already exist that do the same thing? What happened to the divine beasts? They didn't go underground because we go underground and don't see them. Even if they were dismantled that's a lot of sheikah tech that is just used on towers that is then missing. These divine beasts are the size of mountains. those just don't go missing. The biggest issue is hardly anyone references what happened in BoTW but no one goes into detail... it's just so disjointed. It's like BoTW just doesn't matter at all. Why does Yonobu not have the Daruk's protection anymore? Why does Riju not Mention Urbosa or even her own mother? No mention of Ravali at all. Mipha is mentioned but that's unavoidable when they have a full on statue and brother dedicated to her. I'm sorry, I get they wanted to make this game standalone as well as a sequel but you need to make the first game matter in some way. So some kind of reference outside of a town to the first game. Only reason why I can think everyone has amnesia is maybe when Zelda goes back in time that changes the events of BoTW but then that makes another timeline split (not to mention all the timeline splits that should have happened during Skyward Sword). Which I have a feeling Nintendo wants to avoid more timeline splits. I just have a hard time believing this is in the same world as BoTW outside the same characters and map.
So what about the story itself? It's... fucking weak. Rauru is maybe the most memorable from the memories? But then I have to ask.... why the fuck are we doing memories again and they are so much worse then in BoTW. They aren't an effective story telling rule. It's kind of like just looking up where cutscenes are at. Which is boring. I want to play these events. Not just see them. What's the point of playing the game then? I can just look up all these cutscenes and get the same affect for the story then go play a different game that has better gameplay than ToTK. It's not impossible to tell a cohesive story with a freedom exploring game. Look at any GTA game. Look at Red Dead. Look at Fallout. Look at Elder Scrolls. Look at Batman Arkham Knight. Look at Dying Light. I'm sorry but story wise ToTK is very weak compared to any other open world games. Hell Elden Ring which has minimal story telling does it better than ToTK. I have a hard time caring about these characters when I know all of these characters are fucking dead. I don't care about Rauru, i don't care about Sonia/Sophia (what the fuck was her name again)? Mineru is about the only one I should care about in all honesty from the memories and she only shows up like twice. I hardly care about Zelda because well.... Let's talk about Link finally... the weakest part of the game.
Link... I'm sorry but humming while cooking and giggling when jumping while shield surfing isn't a personality. The man shows no other personality outside of those very very minor situations. He looks barely chocked at memories. His body language is so lacking what a normal persona has. I'm sorry but him being raised in a military family isn't an excuse. Many military family kids that go into the military are still human who laugh, smile, cry, and get upset. They don't just lose what makes them human. This Link is the least human out of the Links. Look... when the intro to the game happens and Link fails at doing the last military job he was assigned which is protect Zelda and he fails at doing it. You'd think he'd show some kind of angesadness/emotion when he wakes up... but he doesn't... he just goes about his day. Then you go through all the memories and every time one ends... he just does the pikachu shocked face and goes about his day like nothing happened. He doesn't even tell anyone else that is looking for Zelda when he finds out she's turned into a dragon. I was expecting at least in the final memory for him to look upset or something when Zelda finally appears as the light dragon. Maybe have him cry. But instead he is a stone wall. If any of you disagree with me by saying "well Link has never had a personality" allow me to show you this . This is Link showing actual distraught when something happens to His Zelda. Shit still makes me tear up... but where is this heart with ToTK Link. And if we're to believe that Zelda and Link are dating in ToTK why the fuck is he not crying? That's his girl man. That's the person he loves... yet he doesn't show any signs of sadness. And before you all say he's stoic I'm sorry but again. Military men would cry if something happened to their wife like this.
I know some people are gonna claim that a majority of the story is hidden behind notes but im sorry. If we give heavy criticism to other games for doing that then we must be fair to even Zelda games when it comes to that.
Overall... I can't. I can't give the story a 1 or 2. The characters outside of Link are great but... great characters can't carry a story. It's like when you have great actors in a very shit movie. They're gonna kill the role they have but that doesn't keep the movie from being shit.
Games are 75% gameplay 25% story most of the time and Zelda Tears of the Kingdom fails with it's story. For me that makes it a 0.
The overall score I give ToTK is a 6 out of 10. I'm not saying the game is bad by any means I just don't think it deserves game of the year where it fails to improve on the previous Zelda games and even BoTW. The story is the weakest part even when looking at it under a microscope of just BoTW's Sequel. Not even taking into account it's connections and flaws to the other games.
I do hope the Zelda Team writes a better story for in the future but that is my score for the game that ultimately... No one will care about.

【EVERYONE MUST READ】Received extraterrestrial messages through channelling: Regarding open contact and the future of humanity.
The following information is presented as a direct transmission without any personal subjective elements. Its authenticity is subjective and open to individual interpretation**.**
It is important to approach the content with an open mind, suspending conventional three-dimensional perspectives.
You are welcome to question, disagree, and inquire while maintaining respect for others. The information provided is based on my compilation of diary entries from the past two years, during which I have also received guidance from extraterrestrial visitors. Thus, the following content represents their intended message for humanity on Earth.
In the past two years, I have had experiences where I encountered beings that I believe to be extraterrestrials. If we classify them based on physical appearance, I have come across more than 50 distinct types, with the majority resembling the commonly known "Grey aliens." Although their colors varied slightly, they shared common traits such as slender limbs and large heads. Notably, all the extraterrestrial beings I encountered were devoid of hair. The height of these beings ranged from approximately 15cm (infant stage) to around 3 meters (adult stage).
In these encounters, I found myself often alone in a room, and they would approach me or transport my consciousness to another dimensional space for communication. On some occasions, these encounters took place in public settings such as airplanes, libraries, parks, and other crowded areas. However, I must emphasize that during these moments, I was the sole witness and participant in the interactions with these beings.
During encounters with certain alien species, I have noticed unusual physical reactions. For some of them, my eyelids would involuntarily twitch regardless of whether my eyes were open or closed. In the presence of highly energetic beings, I experienced involuntary movements in my limbs as well. Subsequently, their images would manifest in my mind, as if a vast mural was being projected before me.
However, I have also encountered extraterrestrial beings that closely resembled ordinary humans, though I could sense their true essence within. Some of these beings wore glass helmets, possibly to accommodate Earth's atmospheric conditions or magnetic fields (vibrational frequencies).
In addition to encountering extraterrestrial beings commonly depicted in media, literature, and online sources, I have come across entities whose existence has no recorded precedent in human accounts. Remarkably, I even find myself using terms like "beautiful" to describe certain female-like extraterrestrial beings due to their unique physical characteristics.
I have primarily encountered civilizations within our own Milky Way galaxy. During these encounters, I have observed certain civilizations whose attire suggests the presence of social hierarchies. However, it remains uncertain whether these hierarchies are based on an "elder system," "mentor system," or "monarchical system."
The information they transmit to me will not surpass my cognitive range. If there is a need for me to explore unfamiliar areas of knowledge, even beyond the existing knowledge on Earth, they will "arrange" opportunities for me to learn about them in advance.
Our communication takes place using telepathy or pure consciousness exchange. In this mode of communication, they utilize my native language, which is Cantonese.
In my experience, most of the information I have received has been through passive means, as I have been approached by these beings rather than actively seeking out encounters or information.
The information provided is as follows: We are currently existing in the 363rd universe, which is the fifth Earth, and it represents the eighth civilization. Starting from the latter half of 2019, there has been a notable shift in the vibrational frequency of Earth, leading to the occurrence of various extreme climatic events. Simultaneously, this shift has brought about a change in the frequency of consciousness for many individuals, resulting in a spiritual awakening. It is my understanding that these individuals have discovered a deeper sense of purpose in life, transcending materialistic pursuits.
Based on the information provided by extraterrestrial beings from the constellation of Andromeda , it is said that there will be a series of collective and open contact events between alien civilizations and humanity before the year 2025. During one such encounter, I encountered an extraterrestrial being who emitted a luminous white glow and possessed elongated limbs. Interestingly, they wore a glass-like covering around their neck. The spacecraft I observed differed significantly from what I had previously encountered or seen in popular depictions. Its surface had a dark metallic appearance, composed of overlapping three-dimensional geometric shapes such as irregular polygons, cubes, and flattened geometrical forms.
On March 12, 2023, it was conveyed to me that the first public contact would take place on May 30 of the same year.
On March 30, 2023, the spacecraft entered the solar system.
On May 12, 2023, at 1:00 AM, during my daily Zhan Zhuang(站桩) session, I had a visit from a pale gray extraterrestrial being.
This time, I took the initiative to ask questions.
Me: What is the significance of open contact?
ET: It is intended to assist individuals/souls on Earth in gaining a deeper understanding of themselves.
Me: What about the Creator?
ET: The Creator is the inherent existence itself, implying that every conscious being is an aspect of the Creator.
I further inquired about the concept of Earth's ascension, and the extraterrestrial explained that ascension involves returning to the past. If one does not ascend, they continue to exist in the present, but there is no conventional notion of a "future."
It is speculated that in the year 2030, Earth will experience a significant shift known as the singularity point. During this time, awakened individuals will transcend to a higher frequency, entering a dimension separate from the physical world. This event is often referred to as Earth's ascension. The process of ascension requires the collective power of awakened souls as well as the assistance of certain structures scattered across the planet, such as ancient pyramid-like monuments. These structures are believed to have served as energy amplifiers or charging stations for extraterrestrial craft in ancient civilizations.
After 2030, the frequency and intensity of both natural and human-induced disasters are expected to increase. As Earth undergoes profound changes, including extreme weather events, the fate of humanity becomes uncertain. The exact timeline or duration of these transformations leading to the eventual disappearance of human presence is unknown.
It is believed by some individuals who have awakened to their higher consciousness on Earth that they may be experiencing their final incarnation within the cycle of reincarnation on this planet. As a result, there may be a decrease in the number of souls choosing to incarnate here. Personally, I have noticed a noticeable decrease in the number of individuals since November 2022.
In my clairvoyant visions of the future, I witnessed a final scene of Earth where all surface water rapidly returned to the planet's core, leaving behind a desiccated terrain. The Earth's atmosphere vanished, and the protective energetic boundaries surrounding the planet dissipated. There is no specific timeframe for these events, but when I witnessed them, I was astonished for about 30 seconds.
On June 3, 2021, during my time in Toronto, I encountered an extraterrestrial being who claimed to be from the most advanced civilization in the Milky Way galaxy. This being had a head resembling that of an octopus and spoke with a masculine voice. Unlike previous extraterrestrial encounters, this being had human-like eyes and emitted a subtle blue and white light. He had a humanoid form.
Using blackboard-like equipment, he wrote a series of symbols and mathematical equations, some of which involved the use of π in different orientations. However, I couldn't comprehend whether these symbols represented text or formulas.
Given my limited knowledge of physics, I asked him to provide a simple and easily understandable example to explain the concept of a singularity. He responded by saying, "A singularity is like a fully ripe watermelon." From my understanding, he meant that a singularity represents a transformative point where a significant qualitative change occurs.

The following is a personal account and viewpoint.
Extraterrestrial Technology
I can only say that the technological advancements of extraterrestrial beings surpass our current level of Earthly technology by a significant margin. It is important to note that the depictions of alien technology in science fiction movies cannot truly capture the full extent of their capabilities. At present, our ability to "detect" or "discover" extraterrestrial life is limited. Therefore, relying solely on visual evidence captured by human senses, optical instruments, such as photographs and videos, or even advanced military radar tracking technology, may not be sufficient to prove the existence of extraterrestrial beings. It is possible that these observations only provide glimpses into their plans and intentions.
During my personal encounters, I witnessed their spacecraft, which seemed to be powered by crystals that resemble those found on Earth. Therefore, when I tried remote viewing the base of the Egyptian pyramids, I observed the presence of enormous crystal formations. I have contemplated whether the ancient extraterrestrial beings, such as the Anunnaki, were interested in mining not for gold, as commonly believed by humans, but for the seemingly undervalued resource of crystals.
Aliens on the moon
The extraterrestrial beings I observed on the Moon resemble the appearance of small greys, but their skin is not smooth and instead has numerous wrinkles. Whenever they are outside their spacecraft, these beings always wear spacesuits, with their heads exposed and not requiring a helmet. I saw this through my clairvoyant abilities, but as soon as they became aware of my presence, I stopped RV them after a few seconds. I gathered that these particular extraterrestrial beings have some connection to Russia and the United States, with a closer affiliation to Russia.
On January 23, 2023, at 3:00 AM, I used remote viewing of the Moon again and discovered that all of them had evacuated from the lunar surface, still wearing their spacesuits. This leads me to speculate that there will no longer be any human lunar exploration missions in the future.
The pyramids on Mars
March 25, 2023 -The following information was conveyed to me by my ancestral spirit guide: There are currently two pyramids on Mars, similar in size to the one in Mexico. They have been buried underground by orange-red sand. Some interstellar extraterrestrials are still exploring the interior of the pyramids.
Interstellar extraterrestrials are a group of beings from outside our universe who explore other celestial bodies. They cannot breathe in space or environments with oxygen and require special gases. They wear suits similar to spacesuits on Earth, but their structures and functionalities are more advanced. Their bodies emit a faint glow.
Earth Ascension
APR 12, 2023 - Over the past couple of years, I have been gradually glimpsing fragments of my existence before reincarnating on Earth, leading me to speculate about Earth's previous civilization. It appears that Earth was once a highly advanced civilization existing in higher dimensions, and the occurrence of the great flood undoubtedly caused a significant dimensional decline. As a result, the tales of advanced civilizations such as Mu, Atlantis, and the mythological stories passed down across the world, which I initially believed to be true stories of divine encounters, now seem to be events involving ancient higher-dimensional human civilizations. The ascension of Earth does not involve a transition from three dimensions to four or higher dimensions, but rather a restoration of Earth to its original trajectory and vibrational frequency.
ET Wars
During the summer of 2021, I had my first encounter with two distinct large spacecraft engaged in a "war" in the skies above Vancouver. However, from my perspective, the "warfare" amounted to the two ships closely approaching each other for a brief moment before one of them vanished entirely. For the average person looking up at the sky, they would likely see nothing more than a peaceful day with blue skies and the sun. It seems that there are factions of extraterrestrial beings on Earth representing different groups or alliances.
Thiaoouba Prophecy
It is a book that gives me the impression of an attempt by an extraterrestrial to write in a human-like manner. Many people consider it to be a pseudo book, as it contains elements that come across as rigidly presented, and the author's thinking appears quite different.
North Korea
This country is associated with an extraterrestrial race of insect type, of which I am very certain, that the highest leader Kim Jong-un appearing publicly inside and outside the DPRK is not himself.

I would like to briefly share my background. I was born in a small tea plantation in Guangdong, China. From an early age, I frequently encountered extraterrestrial beings or had experiences where they sought me out. Although I didn't know who they were during my childhood, I was certain that they did not originate from Earth. For me, extraterrestrial beings/civilizations have always been present on Earth, and they are ubiquitous. It was not until I reached middle school that I realized their existence in this world was either unknown or denied.
In my perspective, extraterrestrial beings have not openly interacted with humans due to our overwhelming fear of the unknown and our inherent resistance to anything different or dissenting. Humans often approach unfamiliar things and differing opinions with hostility.
In a dream I had in February 2023: Many extraterrestrial beings descended from the sky wearing silver-white protective suits made of metallic material. Their spacecraft resembled our helicopters to some extent. However, at that time, humans were still unable to visually perceive their presence. It required a large screen device, larger than our current smartphones, measuring approximately 20cm x 15cm x 2cm, to detect them. The extraterrestrial beings did not engage in any actions that would harm humans physically or mentally. Some curious individuals were solely focused on capturing photos and videos using this device, while others were filled with panic and fled the scene.
On March 5, 2023, for the first time, I had contact with extraterrestrial beings through a dream. This dream occurred when I fell back asleep after waking up in the morning. In the dream, I temporarily stayed at a guesthouse near an airport as I needed to go somewhere. One day, I took a ride in a seven-seater business vehicle rented by the hotel to visit a nearby commercial area. Suddenly, during the journey, I fell into a drowsy state. Just as I was about to rest my eyes in the car, a long, soft tentacle-like appendage coiled around my right index finger, making two loops. I immediately opened my eyes, and the tentacle disappeared.
At that moment, I had a realization that I needed to close my eyes to establish a connection with the entity. I closed my eyes once again, and a sense of its presence enveloped me. It stood approximately 20 to 30 centimetres tall. As I touched its body with my left hand, I noticed its skin was remarkably smooth, akin to the delicate skin of a human baby. There were no hairs, and its form lacked excess fat. Its head resembled that of a human, measuring around 8 to 10 centimetres in diameter. It felt considerably softer than a human head, and on the left side of its head, there was a protrusion resembling a fan-shaped structure, somewhat reminiscent of tendrils. Throughout the entire encounter, I kept my eyes closed, yet I could sense the overwhelming sense of joy and serenity emanating from the being. After approximately ten seconds of contact, it disappeared.
Upon waking up, I experienced a faint electric sensation coursing through my body. Every pore seemed to be wide open, creating a peculiar sensation similar to a slight chill, yet different from the usual experience of feeling cold.
Based on these two dreams, I speculate that in future encounters between extraterrestrial beings and human beings, we may not be able to observe their existence with our naked eyes. Instead, we will have to perceive them through our senses.
The Flat Earth Theory
The Earth is flat, not just based on online opinions, but because I saw it with remote viewing as a flat surface when I was young, and it remains the same now. Based on this fact, the scientific understanding of the planetary orbits in the solar system is entirely wrong. At the very least, the Earth should be stationary, with the Moon and the Sun revolving around it. This aligns with Buddhist cosmology, where the world is described as a space illuminated by the presence of the sun and moon.
Feb 28, 2023: Utilizing remote viewing, I intended to project my consciousness beyond the boundaries of the solar system to observe the trajectories of the planets. However, to my astonishment, what I witnessed was that all celestial bodies within the solar system appeared to be motionless when viewed from outside.
It seems that the concept of time may not exist in a high-dimensional world, but rather in our three-dimensional reality. Another point to consider is that the Earth's ascension would require an acceleration of space-time. From the perspective of the universe, the solar system appears to be stationary due to its overall low vibration frequency.
When I came across Elon Musk's Mars program in the news, I posed a question to my guiding spirit.
Me: Will humans relocate to Mars or the Moon in a thousand years?
Spirit: I am uncertain whether you (humans) will be able to embark on the journey to the next civilization.
Therefore, I have always believed that the preservation of the world's diversity and the continuity of human civilization depend on human inclusivity.

2023.05.27 20:44 Suraziv 22 [M4F] Michigan/Midwest/Anywhere – Looking for a deep and long-term connection with that special someone!

Hey! I hope whoever reads this is having a nice weekend so far! As I’m beginning my first full-time job post-college, I thought it wouldn’t hurt to start looking for that special someone. So, why not try looking online as well? Leave no stone unturned, I say. The perfect person could be here and I wouldn’t have known! So, here’s a bit about me:
I graduated from college last year with degrees in both marketing and management (yuck, a business student, I know). I work in the automotive industry and am just starting my first full-time job! My interests include cars (duh), video games – albeit casually, tv/movies, Formula 1, American football, history, politics, finding new music, taking long drives and walks, and a lot more that I either can’t think of or are more random. I’d also love to hear what your interests are, and even if we don’t have anything in common, I’m sure there’s lots to talk about. I’m pretty open-minded! And learning about new topics or being introduced to new activities and hobbies is always fun. Love to hear new perspectives and people’s stories, as well as share my own. I believe that everyone has so much to offer.
I'm a slight bit introverted, especially early on, but I open up to people pretty easily after getting to know them a little. I like to think that I’m kind and considerate, but nobody is perfect. I'm also a pretty good listener and a bit of a hopeless romantic, and would consider myself at least somewhat funny. I strongly value family, honesty, faithfulness, accountability, and loyalty, so you can expect me to be 100% dedicated to you and our relationship. I’m a creature of habit, so I love routines. If we end up developing a routine of calling/visiting/doing things together, then that is something I’ll take great pleasure in. I also can really geek out on things and talk your ear off if you let me.
Appearance: I’m pretty average appearance wise. I’m 5’11, so I barely missed out on the 6-foot club. I’m white, have brown eyes, and short, thick brown hair. I usually wear glasses since I have terrible eyesight. I’m in decent shape, working on trimming down a bit, but I’m around 170 lbs. I’m usually dressed super casually (hoodies, sweats, pajamas, t-shirts, shorts, etc.) unless I have somewhere to go or dressing up for work, which I’ll have to do quite frequently.
What I’m Looking for in a Partner:
Firstly, being around my age is ideal (18-25). I find it easier to connect with people similar in age since we are all in similar parts of our lives. I’m not too picky so long as you take care of yourself and carry yourself well. I’m also looking for someone who has similar values as I do. You don’t need to have anything in common with me in terms of hobbies or interests, but it always is a bonus! You also don’t need to be close to me in terms of location! I have a car and some money to spend on travel. I’d be 100% willing to for that special someone. Most of all, I look for someone I can see myself spending my future with, through thick and thin.
So if you made it this far and are still interested, I’d love to hear from you! No need to go crazy on introductions, just some basic information to get started is perfectly fine! And if we get along well, I’m more than happy to exchange pictures and other social media or numbers to communicate elsewhere. I’d also prefer not to rush into things. Taking the time to really get to know someone makes things work out better in the long run in my opinion.
Look forward to hearing from you!

2023.05.27 20:33 FreshNoobAcc Clinically useful medical audiobook examples?

I recently completed ‘the emperor of all maladies’ audiobook, was about 20 hours long, really really enjoyed it, (highly recommend for anyone interested in the origin of many chemicals we use everyday), took about a month of listening on commutes but had me thinking whether there was a useful similar book on clinical medicine, maybe full of anecdotes or eponymous terms or stories of patients with learning points at the end? I listened to the oxford handbook using AI but it was a bit too dense and formulaic so got very boring. I would also accept a formulaic podcast (that is one that is structured and covers all resp topics, then all cardio topics etc)

2023.05.27 18:33 Ragnanicci More evidence that the stolen moon directly concerns a woman

The mercenary who comes to the Waystone Inn is looking for a woman. At the bottom of this post is a copy/pasta of some of my research and language cross referencing. It's jumbled, but should be fairly straight forward to follow much of.
Felurian's song is somewhat translated down below, and I believe the song is calling out to her "lost love" trying to lure a specific person in.
More importantly, I think I've figured out most of what the Skindancer was saying at the Waystone Inn. I believe Kvothe is hiding someone at the waystone, and he was looking for her. He uses a word for her that basically means (Shadow turned evil woman)
And when he asks Kvothe Te Rhintae?
I believe he is asking Kvothe if "she" turned him into something
Anyway, if you believe that or not, there is a lot of useful info in my notes below so enjoy:

Wind is related to God, Aerin = God / Ae = of wind

The language spoken by the Mercenary is not Siaru, it's the same as Felurian's language and Kvothe knows it in the frame story but shares many similarities to siaru

"Demon be gone!" Kote swallowed and changed languages. “Aroi te denna-leyan!”
“Oh come now,” Bast reproached, his smile falling away.
“That’s just insulting.”
“By earth and stone, I abjure you!” Kote dipped his fingers
into the cup by his side and flicked droplets casually in Bast’s
direction. “Glamour be banished!”
“With cider?” Bast managed to look amused and annoyed at
the same time as he daubed a bead of liquid from the front of
his shirt. “This better not stain.”
Kote took another bite of his dinner. “Go soak it. If the
situation becomes desperate, I recommend you avail yourself
of the numerous solvent formulae extant in Celum Tinture.
Chapter thirteen, I believe.”

The lay of sir savien does not mean the story of sir savien put down
It means, "to be the saviour"

ae and ai are equally related to the wind, though ae seems to be benevolent and ai seems malevolent
ai seems to be related to dominance, or a more personal aspect or the wind

“No.” She gave her head a tiny, firm shake. “You are my Ciridae, and thus

Just one person’s opinion. WE diehard so I’ve seen more or less all of their games, but I’ll catch other games here and there. Did a lot of Oracle’s Elixir and Leaguepedia digging as well and followed/consulted @DJJohnnymeister on twitter (must follow IMHO if you care at all about the up and comers of the LDL) for thoughts on lower-level prospects. Will probably make me look stupid when it’s all said and done, but that’s part of the fun right?
Top Contenders
1) JDG
Top – 369
Jungle – Kanavi
Mid – Knight/lzq
ADC – Ruler
Support – Missing
Was the best team on paper last split and lived up to the hype. Coming off of a dominant MSI championship run, they are the slam dunk pick to top not just the LPL power rankings, but the World power rankings.
369 is perhaps the best he’s ever been, easily 1st team All Pro. Kanavi has re-established himself as the best jungler in the world at MSI. Knight’s mechanical talent finally shone through on the international stage. Lzq is an 18-year-old who somehow skipped the LDL altogether and isn’t really relevant to the narrative, but he's on the official roster so I have to mention him. Ruler inserted his name in the GOAT conversation and proved his mettle out of the Samsung/GenG sphere, doing his thing of blending solid damage output with consistent safety. When Missing is the worst player on the team by default and yet still the Spring 2nd All Pro Team support you’re in golden shape.
They get a sentence each because I shouldn’t need to tell you about this team. They’re really just complete without any exploitable holes. Adding Knight and Ruler to China’s best squad in 2022 feels similar to the off-season where the Golden State Warriors added Kevin Durant, with the added bonus that Boogie Cousins is still in his prime. I suppose that makes Yagao into Pro LOL’s Harrison Barnes (I actually like this comparison, down to Yagao receiving blame for the blowing it when it mattered most) and GenG into Pro LOL’s Sacramento Kings (pretty bad, but if we equate the playoffs to making world finals?… ehh still really bad). We’ll see who (if anyone) can rise up to challenge them, but at this point they have to be considered the odds-on favorite.
2) LNG
Top – Zika
Jungle – Tarzan
Mid – Scout
Support – Hang
This team had one hole in the roster going into the summer and filled it. LP didn’t have a bad rookie split and showed mettle but he was clearly the odd man out on a team built to compete today. After looking at IG’s ADC Ahn, they chose to spare no expense and traded LP and a boat load of cash for RNG’s GALA who more than fills that hole. GALA will be paired in the bottom lane with Hang, who was a key partner for LP’s surprisingly competent debut, earning an All-LPL 3rd team shoutout in the process.
Scout meanwhile had a downright incredible split that fell by the wayside due to LNG’s immediate playoff exit at the hands of OMG, but it appears that even away from the EDG machine, he’s still one of the LPL’s premier stars at a very competitive position. I mean he put up a mind numbing 17 MVPs individually. To put it in perspective, ThunderTalk Gaming, who were the 8 seed in the LPL Spring Standings, had 18 wins in total. With teams like EDG and JDG sharing the MVP load among their members, Scout downright ran away with it.
Zika didn’t have a super flashy split, but was low key very strong. The team devoted a lot to making sure LP wasn’t exploited and you would think Zika, who was heavily strong-side suited as a rookie on IG last year, would flounder because of it. However, he quietly flourished in the role, even though he only picked up a single MVP performance all season. Putting up strong CS numbers and showing some good weakside ability on top of his typical array of more damage centric tops. Honestly, he might be the most underrated player in the league since he’s overshadowed by his much more resource heavy teammates, but that weakside ability might be even more key with GALA joining the team and needing the resources as well.
Tarzan meanwhile continued as a standout in the regular season, best jungler KDA, strong kill participation basically the rest of the regular season MVP performances, but was perhaps the primary factor in their playoff disappointment. Similar to JDG’s situation with Missing though, when Tarzan (specifically in the playoffs) is the team’s biggest concern, you know you have a roster ready to compete.
3) EDG
Top – Ale
Jungle – Jiejie/Monki
Mid – Fofo/Fisher
ADC – Leave
Support – Meiko
Despite losing their key Korean carries, EDG barely missed a beat last split, finishing 3rd in the Spring Split. It’s a pretty good result all things considered, but it does feel like they have holes in their game. Still, I think that between their core veterans still at the peak of their game and the overall consistency, they are in very good shape for the Worlds slots, even if they feel a step behind the likes of JDG right now.
Even without Scout and Viper, they still have a great veteran core that starts with Meiko, who with Ming’s absence/retirement(?) stands alone as only active LPL’s all-time top 10 support. As part of the EDG core for over 9 years now, and the team’s primary shot caller for a huge part of that span, his presence alone means that EDG will have one of the best macro games in the league. Combo that with Jiejie, who has served in the EDG system for a huge period of time and grown into a top level jungler in his midst of his prime and you immediately have a team that has championship aspirations even before the other 3 members are considered, as both players were 1st Team All Pro for the Spring Split.
The 3 other members were where a lot of the concern lied going into the season, but they exceeded expectations as EDG was the number 2 seed going into playoffs. While the least talked about of the three, it was a great bounce back split for FoFo who was one of the most disappointing players on 2022’s most disappointing team BLG, eventually losing his starting job to mid-season acquisition Icon. On EDG though, he looked revitalized and fairly close to his form on RA 2021, though admittedly he was flanked by better players with EDG. It was a commendable, low drama, stable split for a player who needed it bad.
Similar to FoFo, Ale was coming off of a rough 2021 as well where a talented by troubled LNG team didn’t completely flop by the results, but completely missed the high expectations set. This included a benching for PandaC halfway through the split that really hurt the team in key series down the stretch amid talk about attitude issues. He’s always been a talented pair of hands though and EDG did well to keep him focused and on his game, as he stepped up big time, particularly when given non-tank champions while piloting tanks well enough, earning 2nd team All Pro honors. Obviously, Ale isn’t always the most stable player, but so long as EDG has him on the straight and narrow, he’s going to be a net positive for the team.
Finally, we come to the rookie of the split Leave, who came in with some serious LDL hype and lived up to it for the most part, working well as EDG’s damage carry and showing a flashy mechanics style. Being flanked with the likes of Meiko helps of course, but EDG handed the reigns to Leave and he seemed up to the task. Unfortunately, going up against the likes of Ruler and Elk in the playoffs did prove to be that freshman wall for Leave, but as MSI showed they’ve been folding everyone, so it’s not too shameful. Still as the least experienced player in this top 4 group, it’s going to be a lot of pressure on the youngster. It’s crazy that this super mechanically skilled star of his rookie class could be the weakness of the team, but that’s just the level of the competition among the top teams of this league.
I do want to give brief mention to EDG’s substitute players, who are both very talented youngsters. Monki is a 19-year-old LDL promote jungler who was strong at the lower level and warranted a promotion. Fisher meanwhile had been a standout Korean trainee from Shadow Corp (the same team they picked up About, the new Korean bot lane trainee Ale was talking about) and directly went onto the EDG main roster at 18 years old. Neither will likely see play given this team’s veteran tilt and the championship ambitions, but they’re worth keeping an eye out for down the road whether they’re future EDG starters or purchases for other LPL teams.
4) BLG
Top – Bin
Jungle – XUN
Mid – Yagao
ADC – Elk/Baiye
Support – ON
Given BLG’s penchant for big expenses for early playoff exits, it would be easy to write off their latest roster as yet another flailing attempt to microwave a team into stardom, turning over basically the entire 2022 roster they reportedly spent top dollar for. And yet, it felt different this time around. While the players they picked up weren’t exactly household names, they were talented mechanical players on the rise. They looked genuinely strong in the pre-season tournaments, which admittedly doesn’t count a whole ton, but was interesting to note. And when it was all said and done, it resulted in the best split BLG has ever put up. And while they couldn’t outgun the JDG machine in any of the many shots, it was a great season. While I have them below LNG for their sheer top to bottom power and EDG out of respect for their veteran track record, I’m still very impressed by this BLG squad.
Bin, as somehow the longest tenured BLG member of 2 splits, was the face of the team’s turnaround, and a far cry better from the rocky 2022 he endured swapping between 2 dysfunctional teams. 2023 was where he re-established himself as the premier mechanical top in the league. Always known for his excellent hands since his debut on Suning in 2020, he was able to back up those skills this split, while furthering his profile in the west with his fun trashtalk and gigachad persona. Furthermore, when the chips were down at MSI, he even showed a willingness to pick up tanks, which has always been the clear hole in his game.
As for the free agent additions, the one who most established himself was Elk. If I can put on my hipster hat on, I was an Elk fan before it was cool, given he’s always shown an ability to put up eyepopping damage numbers since his debut which continued this season as he topped the tables far and away leading the league with the number 1 DPM and damage share. However, it was the finer points of the game where Elk struggled on back in the day. Off positioning, hit or miss laning, occasional overextensions trying to maximize damage were all issues for Elk on WE. On this BLG squad though, that has largely ironed itself out, with only occasional blowup performances every so often. An unknown on the World stage going into MSI, everyone now knows the name of this fearsome player. They also added a name that nobody knows, that being Baiye an LDL ADC to the main roster as well. Having just debuted on BLG.J last split and playing all of 7 games in the LDL, it’s tough to take this promotion seriously at all, let alone as a threat to Elk’s seat.
A major part of supporting Elk’s rise was the acquisition of the best young support in the LPL, ON. One of the big pain points of LPL teams is that LDL promotions are just so difficult, and none so more than support, where the talent pool is shallow and the transition is just an absolute killer. So many of the highest profile LDL supports have floundered on promotion, and ON was no exception on Suning back in 2021. That being said, he’s improved an incredible amount since that first rocky season, and the mechanical ability he has as a support and his young age (only 20 years old despite debuting in 2021) makes him perhaps the most valuable long-term asset on the BLG roster. As EDG has shown with Meiko and his cavalcade of ADC pairings, great ADCs can be acquired in the LPL but great supports when kept are backbones to long term success.
XUN was an acquisition much like Elk and ON, a young mechanical standout who BLG scooped up with projection in mind. He arrived into IG in 2021 as a highly touted rookie, and was mentioned alongside the likes of Bo and Xiaohuangren, the 2 super prospects junglers as the next generation. He joined right at the tail end of the Rookie-TheShy era of the team and while he had early struggles then, by the time the next season rolled around, he was IG’s standout player. Even after arriving at BLG, he’s still a very volatile player, and hasn’t solidified his play the way Elk and ON have, but at his best, he’s capable of getting bot rolling, which is exactly what BLG is want to do.
Finally, the Harrison Barnes of the LPL, Yagao, who was the typical blame target for BLG in their losses. It’s true, he’s older and certainly doesn’t match up great against the top of the table mids that he’ll need to beat, but the bottom line is that for the most part he’s fine enough. Just like Barnes, he’s certainly not the team centerpiece, and he occasionally has baffling performances, but he’s usually stable enough to not get in the way. Honestly, he’s probably the weakest individual player among these top 4 teams and the predominant reason (along with coinflippy XUN) that I have the MSI runners up 4th on this list, but to be clear I’m not huge Yagao hater, it’s just that these top teams are so stacked that every potential available weakness makes a difference. I mean, you don’t see Harrison Barnes on the All-NBA teams or anything.
Playoff Expectations
5) OMG
Top – Shanji
Jungle – Aki
Mid – Creme
ADC – Able
Support – PPGod/Jerry
OMG returns with the roster that brought them to their highest playoff finish since Spring 2017 (!!!), finishing a highly impressive 4th in the split. On paper, I still think their roster is lacking in marquee raw talent, but it’s clear at this point that they’re more coordinated than some of their flashier opposition and that they’ve cultivated 2 young stars that have now shown some serious killer instinct.
Without any doubt, this is a team that is defined by the play of their solo lane talents. Starting from the top Shanji had a standout split primarily as one of the most effective K’Sante/Sion tank players the large majority of the time, but occasionally busts out Kennen and his signature Rumble, and been incredibly impactful when he gets them. Furthermore, this synergizes perfectly with OMG’s other star laner Creme, who is afforded the ability to fit AD assassins like Yone. Assassins have continued to be Creme’s calling card and while his control mage play is lackluster, OMG has tailored their gameplans around his champion pool and have reaped the benefits of the young mid laner.
On top of these two really clicking simultaneously, a big hat tip must be given to their teammates as well. PPGod in particular proved to be the right ingredient to bring OMG playoff glory as he continues his ability to accent teams into playoff threats even if he hasn’t been quite been able to reach the Finals at any of his stops. I’ll give him some additional props once we reach the NIP write up. Given PPGod’s late arrival to the team last spring, LDL promotion Jerry sat on the bench for the season, and looks to do so again. Able meanwhile has a pretty non-descript year, taking a back seat to his solo lane teammates but showing some stability that he’s usually lacked. Certainly not a masterful split, but credit where it’s due, he reigned it in and was steady for OMG’s best squad in ages.
Finally, Aki deserves a big hand for his role in OMG’s success as well. A solid vet who isn’t considered a mechanical master by any means, he was steady at the wheel throughout the season, and was even able to out jungle Tarzan of all people in their shock upset win over LNG. Despite taking the most MVPs for OMG in the regular season, it was rarely for single handed domination and I’d point that more as a credit for his facilitation of the team’s coordination in general where they were able to get over the competition where it counted.
I don’t think this team has the ceiling of the others in this tier, but they have a known formula that works. While the others in this group have more talent on an individual level, it’s clear that they have serious questions to sort out that OMG really doesn’t, so I’m considering OMG the safe team in this particular group, but without the upside to challenge the tier above.
6) WBG
Top – TheShy
Jungle – Karsa/Weiwei
Mid – Xiaohu
ADC – Light
Support – Crisp
This team and the one after it were the teams with close to the highest expectations in the League and yet fell flat in spite of talented rosters. Both have largely decided to run it back, with new coaching staffs in an attempt to fix the tactical side where they came short. WBG went big game hunting for their next coach after sacking Easyhoon and was attempting to court Kkoma before he opted to focus on Korea’s efforts at the World Games. They settled for an Kkoma adjacent coach in Daeny, formerly part of the Damwon and T1 programs. A controversial coach in his own right, he’s drew criticism for his pick/bans and his questionable roster decisions, but he still has that Worlds title under his belt, so WBG is out here shooting for the moon. Born to wintrade or whatever.
TheShy is as always, a pretty good representation of the team. Perpetually on top of the damage charts due to his confidence in his mechanics and his propensity to fight constantly, it leads to the coinflippy hit or miss results you so often see from TheShy and his teams in general. He’s certainly not at his peak form where he dominated on the Worlds stage, but he’s not at his worst either near the end of his IG tenure when that whole team looked out of gas, TheShy is an LPL icon, even if that icon is occasionally the death notification on the side of the UI.
Purchasing Xiaohu out of his RNG contract was one of the big stories for this team going into the off season and a large reason for optimism for their future results. In actually he was rather middling by all accounts. Not a total disaster of course, it felt like he was fine for the most part, but not the immediate plug and play mechanical players that Scout, Knight or Rookie serve as. Maybe a second season to mesh is what they need to comeback.
Light for my money was the most dependable member of the team in the regular season, being just a generally stable force in the otherwise chaotic team structure. I wouldn’t call him the best at any individual thing: Ruler is a much safer ADC and Elk is a better pure damage pump, but light is good enough at both of those things to be a consistent plus for WBG, which can’t be said for the rest of the team. Supported by the veteran Crisp, you have to expect them to anchor the team in general, though Crisp was particularly bad in the playoff series against BLG, where his hooks on both Thresh and Naut were off point. It’s just one series of course, but the play needs to be better than that in crunch time next time.
Finally, the jungle situation for Weibo. Karsa continues to be the perpetual punching bag when the team struggles. It’s been a major decline since his Flash Wolves and early RNG days and frankly it might be time to just bucket him as not able to get it done at the highest level at this point. He can still work enough in the regular season to make the playoffs, but the form is just not where it needs to be at this point. In a fascinating move, scooped up Weiwei, who went from BLG’s star jungler to league washout over the course of a single year. The biggest victim of BLG’s 2022 catastrophe, the last look of Weiwei we got was not a flattering one as the team fell flat on it’s face amid roster instability and play not matching up to the expected standard. Still, we’ve seen a number of comebacks for players leaving the BLG ecosystem, such as PPGod and FoFo returning to form after splitting wit the team. Of course it’s not always a winning formula as Doggo and Biubiu (shudder) can attest to, but there’s enough of a strong track record from Weiwei during 2020 V5 and 2021 BLG to say that trying to get that level out of him is worth the attempt.
7) TES
Top – Wayward/Qingtian
Jungle – Tian
Mid – Rookie
ADC – Jackeylove
Support – Mark
Reuniting 2/5ths of the legendary IG core was supposed to lead TES to their Worlds destiny. Yet going into the Summer split they are another team running it back with the exact same roster, though unlike teams like JDG, BLG or OMG, the Spring split was an unmitigated failure for TES. There was not glory, but a collapse down the stretch of the season and shameful defeat at the hands of OMG, a team that is probably running a budget less than Jackeylove’s individual paycheck (note: The previous statement was hyperbole. I do not actually know how much OMG pays their players.) With some of the flashiest names in the LPL, finishing without at least challenging JDG would have been a disappointment, let alone the 7th/8th that they actually managed.
The big obvious question for this team is what exactly they do with the top lane because the decision making around it was seemed heavily stilted. They chose to run Qingtian basically the entire regular season, and then yanked the rug on him with a single series to go? Sure, he was largely a hit or miss top laner who was missing against the better teams (and LGD’s because rookie Xiaoxu was feeling it) but pulling the plug on him and swapping to Wayward literally at the last second heavily sabotaged both of them. Congratulations, Wayward crushed Biubiu in round 1 of playoffs, like basically everyone else who played top lane in the LPL. Up against Shanji (a player TES bypassed as a rookie to pick up Qingtian), Wayward was not up to it, and it was a big part of what ended their season. Even though both top laners are limited, I find it hard to place the blame on them directly given this awkward setup and how they approach top lane in the Summer with both players still on the roster remains to be seen.
The bot lane continues to be the same story as always. Jackeylove is still super high ceiling but there are still sometimes these baffling efforts where he’s playing off of his game, which has been a repeating trend for a while now. Mark did well to stabilize him at the beginning of their shared tenure but it’s been rough going as of late for this bot lane in general.
Moving to the big free agent swap they made, adding the legendary Rookie to the team, and it wasn’t all bad. It’s not like he was an abject disaster, he had his share of good games, such as dominating against Shanks in the first round of the playoffs, it’s just that there were too many series where he didn’t lift the team when things weren’t clicking elsewhere… like the 2nd round against OMG. It felt like too often he wasn’t meshing with Tian who was also off his normally solid domestic game. People joke that it was his Worlds performance showing up and frankly, I’d have to agree.
I don’t know with this team. The on-paper talent is on there as usual but there’s something missing… Normally with teams, the question is: how can this team coordinate together and be more than the sum of their parts, which OMG showcased best? I don’t get that vibe from TES, where the question I’m asking is: do they feel like playing up to their talent, or are they going to let go of the rope and lose in shocking fashion? Just weird vibes. I’d say maybe the coaching swap could help, but bringing in the guy who was overseeing BLG during their moneybag disappointment era doesn’t fill me with confidence. I still think they still should be fine for the playoffs off of their sheer talent running over enough teams when they do hold it together, but I just don’t see them as a viable challenger for the LPL crown unless something flips in them, particularly given how good the top 4 seem.
Playoff Bubble
8) TT
Jungle – Beichuan/xiaohuangren
Mid – Ucal
ADC – Huanfeng/1xn
Support – yuyanjia/Yaoyao
A pleasant surprise last split, making their first LPL playoffs since they were known as Sinodragon, TT has shed their bottom feeder status and actually have some breakout potential. They’ve formed a decent core to build off of and collected some of the most exciting young talents in the league. How they split their starts between the young guns and the vets they played last split is quietly one of the most interesting storylines in the league as those talented swing pieces could push them up into contendership or down out of the playoffs depending on how they handle the LPL stage.
We’ll start with the boring part of the team in their now solidified Korean solo lane pairing, HOYA and Ucal. After spinning solo laners basically their entire existence, the duo has been locked in for basically 4 splits now. Neither blow anyone’s socks off (though I maintain Ucal in particular is pretty underrated), but you know you’re gonna get a playoff worthy performance but not much more. Together they provide the solid foundation for the rest of the roster, where it really gets interesting.
Starting with jungle, Beichuan had effective but flawed split. He output damage well and did much to incite action, but he also died a whole ton, with the highest death share of any jungler in the league last split. This volatility has been his modus operandi this TT squad as he manages to lead TT in MVPs and I’m sure would have also led the team had an “Most Un-valuable Player” award been given to the biggest inter on the losing team, so he’s pretty core to the TT identity as they’re constructed. However, the clearly more intriguing option has to be Xiaohuangren, who is likely the youngest player in the league right now, and the most hyped LDL jungler since Bo. Debuting in LDL at just 16, XHR was immediately one of the best mechanical junglers in the lower level, and even when the age limit was placed, he took to dominating the Korean ladder with multiple accounts in his excess time. Promoted in the middle of the Spring split days after he turned 18, he hasn’t seen a stage since that age limit was placed, but eyes will be watching to see if TT put the hyper-talent on the rift.
Their other young hyper-talent TT acquired is at the ADC position where they are bringing JDG’s LDL bot laner 1xn. Highly touted by LDL experts, 1xn doesn’t have a mechanical flaw to speak of, putting out insane damage and CS numbers on the regular. The one thing to note was that the JDM team surrounding him didn’t have the skills to back him up, so he never really got the accolades his performance deserved. How he splits time with Huanfeng, who was pretty ineffective last season, and just clearly is no longer the do-everything ADC we saw at 2020 Worlds with Suning is the other big question. It’s weird to see him morph into a rather conservative low-risk low-reward player, and honestly, if they gave out a “Least Valuable Player” award to the winning team, he’d probably be the among League’s leaders in that sketchy credential.
Finally, the support situation is less exciting but lowkey just as important as the other 2 positions as they’ve opted to add Yuyanjia to the roster to which I’m fairly confused. A lackluster veteran (25 years old?) who has never really helped a roster even at his “peak”, I’m not sure what he brings to the table for TT. It’s even more confusing since incumbent support Yaoyao has been the rare promoted LDL support who has actually looked good in his initial LPL stint, which is some sort of minor miracle given the typical LDL support struggles. Trying to fit XinLiu in last split probably cost them some series, so I’m not sure why they seem so interested in these mediocre at best support players when they have a solid one in hand.
9) WE
Top – Cube/Demon
Jungle – Heng
Mid – Shanks
ADC – Hope
Support – Iwandy
I see WE as the LPL’s gatekeeper team. Last split they were great against the lower ranked teams (exception AL), and awful against the higher ranked teams (exception BLG) and managed to sneak playoffs thanks to the likes of IG being just a bit more volatile. I’m sure I’ll have more to say about them as the season goes on, so I’ll keep things brief here.
They managed to do this with an essential deadweight in the top lane. Cube doesn’t completely alter the equation for WE, as he’s coming off of his worst split to date where he was largely stuck on tank duty, but he does turns the top lane for WE from being a ceiling capper into a floor raiser for the team. Worst case is that he continues his middling tank form and he serves as a rich man’s Biubiu who can actually lane competently. The best-case scenario is that the change of scenery (where he was on RA for 4 years) works to revitalize him towards more of the damage top lane champs he played in his earlier years. Either way, the best part of this addition is really the subtraction of Biubiu, which adds much needed flexibility to a team that desperately needs it. Meanwhile, Demon also augments the team’s flexibility by adding his skills of doing promotional videos when Chinese New Year rolls around. So yeah, you can say this is a much-improved top lane situation.
Otherwise, the team remains the same as their gatekeeper-selves. Iwandy quietly had a very solid season as WE’s most consistent player and a foundation as a support. Hope had a mid-season swoon that showed his deficiencies particular as a laner and on less focused champions, but was able to showcase his carrying skills as the season concluded. Both are what they are: usually net positives for a team, but not really able to take you to a top 6 seed independently. That is going to have to come from their teammates, speaking of which…
Heng was up and down as a rookie jungler, but for the most part demonstrated a willingness to be proactive and facilitate his lanes via early ganks, even if it didn’t always work out as planned. And of course, Shanks who had his best regular season to date, relying on consistently strong lane performances. While capitalizing on those leads remains a hit or miss affair and a particular bad playoff series against TES are marks against him, I still have those high expectations for him and continue to see this as a prove it year. Outside of Cube unlocking something additional, which shouldn’t be counted on, this jungle-mid pair are the key for WE to climb higher than the lower playoff spots. Both are usually strong early, but they’ll need to clean up their mid/late game play for the team to be a contender against higher caliber teams.
10) IG
Top – YSKM/neny
Jungle – Tianzhen
Mid – Cryin/Dove
ADC – Xiaoyueji/Ahn
Support – Wink
Putting IG too low was a big miss for me in Spring and despite narrowly missing out on playoffs and making some pretty major roster changes, they do make sense as a team as a whole to the point where I can see them in playoff contention.
YSKM was the breakout player for them, as his mechanical prowess was legit right out of the gate though I do think he’s a tad overrated as his DPM isn’t as high as you would expect for a player that almost exclusively plays damage top laners. You have to assume he starts over neny who is just perpetually going to be on this roster as a break in case of emergency/illness weakside player.
Their other returning player is Wink, who has proven to be a successfully above average support and revitalized his career in the process after floundering at ADC for IG. Wink is reunited with his former mid laner Cryin, as both were teammates on a Estar team that vastly exceeded expectations on their debut year. While being the low econ mid laner in a Xiaohu-GALA centric RNG didn’t flatter his talents, Cryin had a pretty good year all things as UP’s best player last season, and he’ll get another shot this year. The expectation is he starts over Dove who is still on the roster? He wasn’t awful but was certainly less exciting than his jungle counterpart and I assumed he would be leaving along with GIDEON and the Korean coaching staff.
This is Xiaoyueji’s second shot at the big leagues given he was tried and passed by Ahn last season, but he’s coming off of an LDL Season MVP where he was clearly above the lower level. We’ll need to see if he can step up with the tougher competition ala Photic, or if he’s just a quadruple-A player (too good for LDL, not good enough for LPL) like Asura. It might not even matter though as it’s worth noting that Ahn remains on the roster, even after the promotion of XYJ and a tryout from LNG (who clearly have contending in mind). He’s coming off of a quietly strong split and likely has the inside track in the battle for the starting role as in a repeat of LPL Spring 2022, these 2 will duke it out for the spot again.
Despite not being the LDL MVP, Tianzhen might be the more exciting prospect actually and notably doesn’t have any veteran to compete with. At only 18 years old, he’s going to be one of the LPL’s youngest players and has an eclectic champ pool that is highlighted by his signature Rengar. It will be interesting to see if these LDL standouts can continue the momentum in the LPL. The promotion isn’t easy, but both of them are in position to excel.
11) RNG
Top – Breathe
Jungle – Wei
Mid – Tangyuan
Support – LvMao/Lele
It’s crazy to think this time last year, RNG were celebrating their 2nd consecutive MSI championship. Obviously, this team has more or less completely shattered from the Golden Road-seeking team that once ruled Spring and faltered at Worlds on a regular basis. I mean it’s been years of speculation that RNG was actually in a NA-esque perpetual financial meltdown that was held together by unfair streaming contracts and bobby pins, but with the departure of GALA and in particular, Ming, who has more or less been on RNG since the start of the era, finally puts RNG on the backfoot. Still, even with the exodus of more or less everyone on those famous teams, there’s a window at the playoffs.
Wei is the final piece of the MSI 2022 team, which is wild to think about because as I mentioned, it's been just 1 year. Now the longest tenured player on the roster, it’s a weird situation as there’s no longer an obvious lane to play into. While he wasn’t always bad, he had many questionable moments and his weakest split to date, and now without GALA in the bot lane there’s no clear place to focus for this team. He’s demonstrated he can be effective without the likes of Xiaohu, GALA and Ming back when he was on EStar in his debut season in 2020, but it’s been a long time since then, so I suppose we’ll have to wait and see.
Similarly, Breathe is also coming off of a split where he failed to meet expectations. It feels like ever since he left WE, he just hasn’t really found his footing as the good flex top laner, first on that weird 2022 BLG failed “superteam” and then on RNG where he never fit in to the Xiaohu-GALA puzzle. This last split he was basically relegated to weakside tanks and was subsequently pretty inconsequential as either a positive or negative factor. The few forays he took towards more carry champions were bad last split and it’s not a great sign for a player once considered so promising. I guess it’s the WE fan in me talking that he still has that upside to be among the best in the league. Maybe I’m lending him too much leeway given he was maybe WE’s best strongside top ever (which for the record is more about WE perpetually playing bot-centric). With out any of those other major carries on RNG, I’m interested to see if Breathe is placed back in that role.
The rest of the team is a smattering of cobbled pieces who aren’t without upside, but don’t exactly scream playoffs. GALA was exchanged for a large bag of cash and LP, who was the only consistent starter of the new cohort. he was heavily cared for as the rookie bot laner on LNG’s otherwise star-studded group, he was able to deliver in that capacity. Notably, he narrowly had the 2nd highest DPM in the split, though admittedly there was a large gap between 1st place damage monster Elk and a much smaller one to the following ADCs of JackeyLove, Assum and Leave. However, he certainly wasn’t perfect as he managed the lowest CS per minute among ADCs in the league, and he didn’t wow the way rookie of the split Leave did. Still, it was a relatively promising start, though the downgrade from Hang to one of RNG’s supports looms large as needless to say, the “cash considerations” RNG received with LP are most likely not being used for his lane partner.
With Angel departing after a pretty rough split, where the highlight was creating a meme after defeating his former team Weibo Gaming, RNG were rumored for a number of domestic mid laners but ultimately just stuck with the player they seemed intent on before they picked up Angel at the last second. Tangyuan is an LDL promote who has been flatout bad in the few stage performances he got in with the main roster, struggling both in the pre-season Demacia Cup and then to open the proper LPL season while Angel got up to speed. He’s at least known to have good Korean solo queue ranks, but you have to imagine there’s going to be a lot of handwringing over his inevitable growing pains as he starts for one of the country’s most popular domestic teams. There’s not zero upside here, for example Xiaoxu came from the same LDL team and vastly overperformed expectations, but I’d lean towards a year of hard knocks for the youngster.
Ming’s departure is the biggest loss for RNG as they now go from one of the rare franchise defining supports to… not that. LvMao spent the split unsigned for the most part before latching onto BLG as ON’s backup to end the season. Reportedly he served a coaching-esque role for the team as they went on their impressive MSI run but LvMao’s play has left a lot to be desired. Now with over 3 years removed from his standout performances in Spring 2020 and no Bard patch coming in sight, it’s tough to see what LvMao brings to the table as a player outside of an experienced hand. The other option they brought in was Lele, the young rookie support FPX promptly benched for Qiuqiu, which is never a great sign, and you know my stance on LDL supports: they bad. Funnily enough Lele was originally a pretty hyped RNG prospect the team once spent 300K yuan signing out of the yearly rookie camp. Needless to say, he’s been an okay LDL support but hasn’t lived up to that price tag at all, though now it seems they could at least get some games out of their failed investment.

2023.05.27 16:21 No-Dragonfly3382 OCD beyond diagnostic criteria?

Hi, I’m wondering if there is any research on whether OCD shows up in ‘atypical’ behaviours or cognition methods beyond the obsessions and compulsions described in the DSM and ICD.
I ask because there seem to be structural and functional differences in the brains of those with OCD, and some people call it a neurodivergency (I’m of the opinion the environmental factors in its onset and repeats are too great to cleanly classify it as such), and in my experience I have always attributed certain behaviours of mine to my OCD (they may indicate something else in which case I would be interested in any vague opinions) but for example: attributing omen like meaning to random events and ‘synchrocities’ but with the same level of insight as I had for my obsessions, my extreme over explaining for worry I might miscommunicate either incorrect or harmful messages, my mechanical interpretation of social cues, verbal and nonverbal communication according to a mental ‘formula’ I have and a similar process for expressing myself in those domains, and ‘spontaneous compulsions’ - I’m of the opinion that for the more normal of these that I exhibit them more frequently and intensely. There are more but yeah.
Thanks in anticipation

2023.05.27 16:12 _a_bat How do I tell a girl I met at uni I don´t want to interact with her without being rude?

It's been almost a week since I (a woman in my 20s) met this girl (same age) at uni. She plays the guitar, sings, and we started talking about music. I thought we could be friends, but I feel like she may have misunderstood my intentions. I am bisexual, although I haven't explicitly come out to people, they seem to have picked up on it.
I complimented her hair and called her pretty once, but I said similar things about everyone there too because they are my group of friends and that´s how I talk to them. We've only interacted a few times in person (4). Twice, it was just a quick greeting. The third time, she asked for my number because she wanted to share some songs with me. I didn't think much of it since it's a normal way for me to connect with new friends. However, she started sending me an excessive number of voice messages and making comments that made me uncomfortable. She asked if she was bothering me(I should have said yes), if she could call me(I said yes once because i just met her and wanted to talk about an event but she did all the talking in the end), if I was busy, if we could talk, and even said she missed me. I found it strange to be missed by someone I've only known for three days.
I just want to be direct with her and let her know that I don't have much time to spare. She has become overly clingy, following me around uni even when I expressed my need to study and be alone. Recently, I bumped into her on my way to class, and even though I explained that I wanted to study and asked her to leave, she said "I´m going to your class with you" in a really demanding tone. It caugth me out off ward so I said "ok.." but told her I really needed to study. She would not shup up and I was unable to focus on my work, and it's possible that it contributed to me not passing that exam because I could´n even make my paper with formulas to use. She would not leave even tho the exam was about to start and left just when half the class was there. I don't blame her entirely, but the situation was certainly distracting.
Given my schedule—waking up early, working, studying during lunch breaks, going to uni, more work, and limited sleep—I simply don't have the energy or time for this. I´m usually a calm person but lately, I've been feeling constantly angry and it has affected my interactions with people, even leading me to be rude at times. I just want her to respect my boundaries and leave me alone. I understand that she may not be aware of the impact she's having but she´s insufferable and I´m really tired and angry. I already told her that I don´t have time for anything and like being alone but she keeps messaging me all the time.
How can I tell her that I don´t want to interact with her in a more direct way without being rude?
PS: Sorry for any mistake. English is not my first language.
