2023.03.29 11:13 gggty7 I need some perspective...
I generally considered my husband a good person, a decent dad and a semi-decent partner. I have an issue with his drinking habit and that is because he doesn't know his limit (that's what he says) and he over drinks at social event, where our children also come along. There were instances where he got so drunk he lost his balance and wet himself.
Over the last 6 months we barely attended social events and when we did, we drove there in different cars. On these occasions he would not overdrink and I honestly thought he finally broke this habit.
Last weekend we attended a birthday party, and all night he dumped the kids on me, and spend all his evening with his male friends and he overdrank. I confronted him on our way home and he tried to shift blame, tell me I was overreacting, and ask me 'what exactly did he do?'. On Monday he called me a scum in front of our kids. This was because he had to take over the kids in the morning because I had to drop something at the doctors and he was sleep deprived and angry that i didnt tell him in advance he needed to take over the kids. Despite this, a few days later he was trying to initiate a conversation, talk normally, ask me if I'm okay and even touch my arm in the morning. I don't understand this behaviour and what does it mean.
For context, this is my only serious relationship I ever had and I have nothing to compare it to.

2023.03.29 11:11 rhack89 To bakfiets or not to bakfiets
Hey fellow Ghentians,
I'm becoming a dad this summer and of course this begs the question: do I become a bakfiets parent or not? Since this is related to the city you live in, I decided to post it here and not in a general dad-group. I live at the edge of the center (Strop), work is in the center of the city for both my wife and me. We have a car (or at least coming in half a year).
Until now we've always been Cambio + bike people for the last ten years. But I'm happy to get my own car after 6 years of Cambio since my usage has gone up drastically in the last two years. My wife is not comfortable driving cars, so biking is her main mode of transport.
The options now are:
- Premium bakfiets (Urban Arrow, Lovens, ...): very expensive but high resell value and comfort - Standard bakfiets (Babboe, etc): more affordable, but seemingly less convenient - Electric bike with decent kid seats and a big basket
I don't mind spending the money on premium is it is worth it. I see so many Urban Arrow bikes around that it feels like it must be convenient.
I wonder what people's experiences are in Ghent?

2023.03.29 11:09 Commercial-Kick-8184 Should I trust him?
Waking up, I had an off feeling about my future plans with him. Going to a local shopping center to enjoy a meal…potentially shopping for some cute clothes, it sounded appealing. This was until I had a realization.
To answer a very likely question running through your head, who exactly is “him”. Well, “him” is a friends boyfriend in which they met through a dating app. Since knowing “him” (which has only been for a month or so), there hasn’t been too much red flags. Of course, everyone has their own idea of what a red flag could be, so maybe he does have a few, but I wont waste you’re time with what I consider to be red flags.
I’m not sure if its my overthinking or intuition telling me to not meet up with “him”, but I feel as if I can’t trust an ultimate stranger, especially off a dating app too quickly.
I don’t know exactly who he is.
Yes, my friend(s) may trust “him”, but their trust doesn’t reflect my trust in him. I read stories of people having terrible experiences with trusting individuals off dating apps, because who they showed themselves as wasn’t who they became, or in reality, truly where. To add emphasis to why I have a hard time trusting folks from online platforms is also from personal things I have experienced, along with friends sharing negative stories as well.
I have a strange feeling of this exact outing, with us being alone in his vehicle. I have to trust him to drive me safely from my house and back. I wasn’t scared until now, when I realized my safety (and life) can be in the hands of someone I don’t trust.
Yknow that off feeling you experience right before something bad happens?
Thats me right now.
Anxiously deciding if I should put my trust into “him”, or if I should go with my gut and cancel.
Advice is appreciated, im not looking for a direct answer as truly it is my ultimate decision. What are your thoughts?
EDIT/clarification: I am a woman while the man and friend involved in the story are a gay couple

2023.03.29 11:04 gothamnightlights How do I get him to understand?
Hi Witches, long time lurker here.
My darling other half is a gentle soul. His work requires a lot of driving and so recently he started listening to podcasts, including the big Joe R. That was fine with me, but today he messaged me saying he’s really enjoying an episode starring…the lover of the patriarchy…the psychologist…JP. I was devastated. At first I approached calmly and tried to explain that he’s basically anti-everything important to me (I am a bi tree-hugging woman of colour with a trans man for a best friend), but that if he wanted to listen to him it’s fine so long as he does his research. He argued that it’s how he is portrayed in the media. After a bunch of voice messages back and forth, I’m at a loss on how to get him to see that he’s idolising and falling for the tricks of someone who would see my best friend dead before calling him a man. He has never had any views like this. If anything he’s progressive. I’m just kind of stunned and I don’t know what to do?

2023.03.29 11:00 Electrical-Carry5740 I'm gifting all articles from a recent series in the Washington Post about gun violence
Hi folks, we've been very critical of administrators for failing to reduce crime around campus, with gun violence an especially frightening trend. It's a justifiable reaction given the frequency and severity of threats to student safety and the historical charge of universities to maintain safe learning environments. Notwithstanding limits to the doctrine of "in loco parentis"
and the endemic nature of crime in North Philadelphia (with violent crime surging since 2020), I think students are reasonable to expect that when the university enacts a crime prevention strategy, it does in fact prevent crime. And it's probably fair to hold the administration accountable if they've claimed the lion's share of responsibility for student safety.
What I'd humbly like to add to this conversation, though, is that students themselves can be part of the solution. You can advocate for public safety. You can understand how the manufacture of guns for ostensibly legal purposes drives the black market for guns used in many shootings near campus. You can understand the role of assault rifles in making confrontations between gangs especially deadly for perpetrators and for any pedestrians caught in the crossfire. I hope I'm not portraying myself as some violence prevention expert, because I'm not, and you don't have to hold yourself to that standard. I only want to urge folks to explore how they can solidify their commitments to a safer campus and put them into practice. And that might start with doing something as simple as reading the news.
In that spirit, I'm sharing these articles from a Washington Post series about the AR-15. The links take you to the full versions without a paywall. You don't have to be a WaPo subscriber. Please feel free to circulate with your friends. These are poignant, eye-opening, and not that long. And while the intractability of gun violence in the US might not inspire confidence in your capacity to help solve it, I hope you'll find that learning in itself can be a source of motivation. Not to get too corny, but maybe, maybe, knowledge is power. A letter from Executive Editor Sally Buzbee on the AR-15 series What does an AR-15 do to a human body? A visual examination of the deadly damage Sutherland Springs survivors haunted by an AR-15's carnage, trauma Magazine restrictions could reduce mass killings by AR-15s, but courts must decide As guns saturate the United States, police turn to the AR-15 Decades of marketing reinvented the AR-15 into a top-selling firearm Why do people own AR-15s? 33% of owners cited self-defense, poll finds How the AR-15 became a powerful political, cultural symbol in America The AR-15's impact in America: Here's what The Post's examination found Armed with AR-15s, extremist and militia groups anticipate civil unrest Gunmakers' growth in red states marks a divide on weapons like the AR-15

2023.03.29 11:00 Mich3006 Mich´s 1st Rd Mock (1.0 / No trades)
I hope it´s okay to post my mock in here?!
Please let me know what you think. Does this mock fill some of your team´s needs?
- Panthers - CJ Stroud, QB CAR pick the (most probably) best choice on QB.
- Texans - Bryce Young, QB The Texans go the obvious way and draft the 2nd best player on a position of need.
- Cardinals - Will Anderson, Edge I guess this pick could be traded but in my mock the Cards draft one of the biggest talents this year.
- Colts - Anthony Richardson, QB A trade for Lamar Jackson´s still an option but with no trades in this mock the Colts go with Richardson.
- Seahawks - Tyree Wilson, Edge Seattle have lot of options but I think Wilson is bpa for a position of need.
- Lions - Jalen Carter, DT Detroit draft a raw talent who´ll be a force if he´s handling his business the right way.
- Raiders - Christian Gonzalez, CB Raiders have some needs but Gonzalez is a very good fit for their secondary.
- Falcons - Myles Murphy, Edge Murphy fills a big need for the Falcons and would be a very solid choice for them.
- Bears - Paris Johnson, OT Best tackle in the draft, obvious and great pick for the Bears imo.
- Eagles - Lukas Van Ness, Edge Eagles could go CB with #10 but with Bradberry and Slay still on the roster I think they´ll go for Van Ness who´s an incredible addition to their defense.
- Titans - Peter Skoronski, OT TEN reset their OL and with their FA additions and Skoronski they did it the right way.
- Texans - Nolan Smith, Edge HOU could go for JSN too but I think Ryans will go for one of the biggest talents in the board.
- Jets - Broderick Jones, OT They draft an OT to protect their (most probably) new star QB.
- Patriots - Devon Witherspoon, CB NE have a lot of options (I think they´ll trade back) but I think Witherspoon is a very good option for them.
- Packers - Jaxon Smith-Njigba, WR Obvious pick and a great addition for GB and Jordan Love.
- Commanders - Joey Porter, CB WSH needs help in the secondary and Porter is a great choice.
- Steelers - Jordan Addison, WR Steelers could go for some OL or DL but I think Addison is a great weapon to give Pickett as many options as possible.
- Lions - Michael Mayer, TE Another great pick for DET. Mayer is a day 1 starter and their 400th option on offense. Lions are legit.
- Buccaneers - Will Levis, QB Heavenly addition for the TB. Levis could be their QB for a long time.
- Seahawks - O´Cyrus Torrence, OG Drafting Torrence in top20 might be too high but he´d be a gread addition to beef their oline.
- Chargers - Quentin Johnston, WR It seems LAC needs a WR and CB every year :) but Johnston would be a perfect addition for the short/mid/long term. Bijan could be an option too but I think the Chargers will keep on Ekeler.
- Ravens - Cam Smith, CB It seems Marcus Peters is gone so drafting a talented CB like Smith is a great choice.
- Vikings - Deonte Banks, CB They have different needs but adding a guy like Banks is a safe choice imo.
- Jaguars - Kelee Ringo, CB Jags fans, please don´t kill me, I know you guys don´t like to go for DB´s that early but I think Ringo would be a perfect addition to their secondary.
- Giants - Brian Branch, S Branch is a versatile option for the Giants. I think they could go for an RB like Gibbs too (see next spot).
- Cowboys - Bijan Robinson, RB I´m pretty sure Robinson won´t drop that far bc the Boys will trade up to get him. He´s an ideal pick for them.
- Bills - Trenton Simpson, LB It´s hard to think of the perfect addition for the Bills but with the loss of Edmunds drafting Simpson would be a good choice.
- Bengals - Darnell Wright, OT I think Cincy will go with Irv on TE so adding a player who could play different positions along the line is a good solution (and with the fact that Williams might be traded too).
- Saints - Bryan Bresee, DT NO needs help upfront their defense and Bresee would be an ideal addition imo.
- Eagles - Tyrique Stevenson, CB I think the Eagles could trade that pick or go for a DT too but in this mock they add a versatile defender to their secondary.
- Chiefs - Anton Harrison, OT Protecting Mahomes is still one of the biggest priorities and Harrison fits exactly that bill.

2023.03.29 10:58 Jiale88996 Comprehensive Coverage for Gap Insurance: Do You Need It?
| || | submitted by Jiale88996 to Insurista [link] [comments]
We all love the smell of new when we buy a new car, so we ask for a loan for this new car. However, will our comprehensive coverage cover our car? What happens if our car is totaled when we step out the dealership? Should we add Gap coverage on our pilcy? In this article, we will discuss what gap insurance is, how it works, and whether or not you need it. Gap Insurance will help you cover what you owe to the lender incase your car is totaled or stolen
What is Gap Insurance?
Gap insurance, also known as guaranteed asset protection insurance, is a coverage option that will pay the difference between what you owe to the loan or lease and your vehicle’s actual cash value (ACV), up to the limit of your policy in case your car is stolen or totaled.
How Does Gap Insurance Work?
To answer this question, we should use an example:
Imagine you asked for a loan to buy a car that costs $30,000, so you owe $28,000 in your car loan. Let’s say you exit from your dealership with your new car and suddenly, a fast car impacts on your car and completly destroys your car. Your car insrer’s adjusters declares your car totaled because the repair costs are worth $24,000. As your car was already out of the dealership, the actual cash value of your car is $28,500. so your car insurance pays you the limit of your policy, that tends to be $25,000. So the dilemma goes this way: your car insurer gave you $25,000 to buy a new car, however, you still own $28,000 to your lender, in that case Gap insurance would cover the rest of money needed to cover your loan, that in this example is $3,000.
Who Needs Gap Insurance?
Gap insurance is especially important for those who:
- Put little or no money down when purchasing a car
- Finance a car for a long period of time (more than 60 months)
- Buy a car that depreciates quickly
- Drive more than the average person
- Have a high-interest car loan
If you think one of these factors would fit one of your real life scenarios, you will need Gap Insurance. Remember, if you ask for a loan to buy a new car, lenders will always request you to add comprehensive and collision coverage in your policy.
How Much Does Gap Insurance Cost?
On average, Gap insurance costs $60 per year, so that will be added to your premium as an extra. The car insurer with the cheapest gap insurance is Travelers that costs around $35 per year, and the most expensive is Eire that costs $60.
How to Purchase Gap Insurance
The cheapest way to obtain gap insurance is through a car insurer rather than dealership, because Gap Insurance from dealerships charge you up to $600 on Gap Insurance. The best way to purchase Gap Insurance is by contacting to some car insurers that offer Gap Insurance. You can choose between Trevelers, Progreesive, Auto-Owners Insurance, American Family, State Auto or Eire. Once you choose one of them, you only have to contact to one of their agents, or go directly to their website, fullfil several questions they will ask for, and buy it.
Benefits of Gap Insurance
The benefits of gap insurance include:
- It will cover the gap you owe to your lender when you owe more than what your car’s acv is worth.
- There is no deductible to add for this coveage option
Downsides of Gap Insurance
- Adds an extra cost to your car loan or car insurance policy
- If you added gap Insurance throught your dealership, you will pay way more than through a car insurer.
Alternatives to Gap Insurance
Some car insurers offer a coverage option named “New Car Replacement Coverage”. This coverage will reimburse you enough money to buy a new car if that is stolen or totaled. However, there is also a deductible added to the amount of money you will recive for your totaled vehicle.
Keep in mind that your car must meet some mileage requirements to be quailified for this coverage option. Some car insurers that offer new car replacement coverage are Farmers, Nationwide or Amica.
What Happens if You Don't Have Gap Insurance?
If you don't have gap insurance and your car is totaled or stolen, you will be responsible for paying the remaining balance on your car loan out of pocket. So the worse part of all of this is you will still have to pay what you owe without any help.
How to Cancel Gap Insurance
If you already paid your loan, and you want to cancel your gap insurance, you can contact to your car insurer agent or thought your car insurance’s website and cancel it. Remmeber you can request a refund for any unused portion of your Gap Insurance. Let’s say you paid 1 full year and you only used 6 months, then your car insurer must reimburse you the remaining 6 months.
Your car insurer will request you some documents like your car has been sold, traded, or paid off. They may also request your car’s current mileage. So please provide it to them to cancel your gap insurance.
Gap insurance is something you must consider to add when the loan of your car is quite extended, and it will protect you from the money you owe to your lender in case your car is stolen or totaled. It’s important you consider adding Gap Insurance for your car because lenders will request you only to add comprehensive coverage along with collision coverage. This coverage option will cost you from $35 to $60 per year only if you buy it through car insurers, if you buy it through dealerships it will cost you around $600 annually.

2023.03.29 10:58 spammmmmmmmmy How does the anniversary date of a car insurance No-Claims-Bonus work? [NCB]
I've recently imported a car from Japan and subsequently discovered that I must switch car insurers.
My previous NCB is two years with insurer Admiral; the anniversary date would be coming up in July this year.
My new car is registered and insured now, in March. The new insurer is taking on the NCB, but in July are they going to offer me the 3rd NCB year? Or, is a new insurer typically going to grant me the 3rd year in March 2024?
I only ask because I've just received the NCB certificate from Admiral. It states the early policy end date, but it does not actually state the policy inception date (July 2020) from which the two years was calculated.
What I am wondering is if - with the timing of this new car's arrival - I have just lost 9 months of NCB as a result of the changing of the "NCB anniversary date".
- July 2020 bought first UK car, insured with Admiral
- July 2021 earned 1 year NCB
- July 2022 earned 2nd year NCB
- March 2023 new car imported, insured with Adrian Flux, paid in advance for the year. Admiral policy cancelled.
- July 2023 is the date I would have earned the 3rd NCB discount - if I had not bought a new car.
- March 2024 - will be one year I've been insured with Adrian Flux.
In case anybody is wondering why I switched insurers, Admiral could not find the car model on any of their databases, and would not quote. I only got a single provider willing to quote for the car and my postcode.

2023.03.29 10:55 StepwiseUndrape574 Rockstar Launches GTA+ Subscription Service With Member Exclusive Benefits But Is It Worth It?
Once upon a time, it was commonplace for online games to have subscription fees. The earliest popular graphical online games, including Ultima Online and EverQuest, all had recurring service fees, as did many games that came after, such as Final Fantasy XI and World of Warcraft.
That model has largely given way to the "freemium" model where the publishers give the game itself away for free, but much of the game's content is locked behind the choice of either extended play times "grinding" for materials, or the option of skipping that grind with a real-money payment.
However, some games have both, and that usually includes the longest-lived and most-successful ones. Sega's ten-year-on Phantasy Star Online 2 is free-to-play, but has extensive cash purchases and also has a "premium" subscription available. In Final Fantasy XIV and the venerable World of Warcraft, the subscription fee is still required despite the presence of a cash shop.
Grand Theft Auto Online has a lot of similarities to what we usually think of as qualities of "MMO" games. While it isn't "massively multiplayer" on a local scale—sessions normally include a maximum of 32 players—there are tens of thousands of players online at any given moment. It has named player characters with persistent progress and all of the other things we think of from MMO games: equipment, appearance customization, player housing, difficult multiplayer "raid" events, and so on.
With that context in mind, it probably shouldn't be a surprise that Rockstar is launching a subscription service for GTA Online. It's called GTA+, and it costs $6 a month. Ponying up for the premium subscription earns you a cool $500,000 in the in-game GTA$ currency every month and extra GTA$ on "Shark Cards," as well as exclusive benefits. Here's the list of benefits for the first month: The Principe Deveste Eight — along with a complimentary Hao’s Special Works upgrade for it before it is made available to purchase by the general public — plus the HSW Orange Trip and HSW CMYK Glitch Liveries. The Auto Shop located in La Mesa, introduces an assortment of gameplay updates from Los Santos Tuners. Current Auto Shop owners can relocate to La Mesa at no additional cost. Waived LS Car Meet Membership fees. Current LS Car Meet members with GTA+ will be reimbursed GTA$50,000 during this event period. Yacht owners can upgrade to the Aquarius Super Yacht at no additional cost. The Gussét Frog Tee and Broker Prolaps Basketball Top and Shorts automatically added to your wardrobe. The Conveyor Livery for the Mammoth Avenger, HVY APC, and TM-02 Khanjali. A selection of free paints and emblems for the Auto Shop. 3X GTA$ and RP on Hao’s Special Works Race Series. 2X Car Meet Rep on the Street Race Series. It would be easy to criticize Rockstar for this move because the company has already taken $60 of your money for the game. That's to say nothing of the grind-heavy nature of GTA Online that practically forces players to purchase Shark Cards for in-game currency if they want to make progress at any kind of reasonable rate. There's also the fact that the company is charging money for what is honestly an extremely minor update on the current-generation consoles.
In the interest of fairness, though, we'll note that many players who bought GTA V (including GTA Online) purchased it nearly a decade ago. Just like other major online games, GTA Online has seen years of additional content and improvements through continual updates, and that stuff does cost money to create.

If you own GTA V, you don't actually have to pay Rockstar anything to play it for the rest of eternity, so giving players an option to spend a little every month to support continued development is fair. However, the list of benefits, at least for the first month, is pretty weak.
There's another caveat, too: this program is only available to players on the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series consoles. We've asked Rockstar if GTA+ will be coming to the PC version, and will update this post if we get a response.

2023.03.29 10:55 Feanorek 2023 BMW 5 series - which options are worth it?
The time has came, and I'm finally getting a brand new BMW. I've already decided that it will be either 540i xDrive or 545e - it might be a last chance to get 6 pot engine in sensible money. Bad part of this is that it limits my budget for options a lot and I will probably pass on at least some.
There are a few options I'm wondering, whether they are good or not and I would be happy to hear from current owners. There are few things I'm 100% taking, as heated seats, comfort seats, heated wheel, backing camera, whole Business Paket, and I have a little more budget for some extra things.
I would be happy, if any of you guys and gals who have options below could help a new guy! I have test driven many of those options and have some opinion, but at least a few were not available in test rides here in Silesia.
- Harmann-Kardon Hi-Fi - I will certainly specc into Hi-Fi, but Harmann-Kardon is double the price. Is it also double the quality? I'm not much of a loud music guy, but I hate distortions in sound, which sometimes happened in my current Jaguar XF.
- Active cruise control with stop&go - it seems on paper as great thing, but testing comparable 2022 Jaguar XF was irritating - it was leaving huge gaps, was slow to change pace and so on, but in Volvo V90 it was great. How it is in BMW? I found a test drive for tomorrow, but I'd be happy if you chimed in.
- Nappa vs Dakota - I'm certainly speccing into comfort seats, but I'm not sure if Nappa leather is better, or just prettier. It certainly looks great as Nappa Mokka, but I could spend money on some other options. Merino is probably out, as it is only specced in Poland in full leather package and would increase price of a whole car by 10%. Sensatec is out, no questions here.
- Ventilated seats - as previously, depending on car, it was either great or useless. I tested it and seems nice but weak, and it's currently -2*C in Poland so I'm not sure if it will do when it's 35 in summer.
- Laser lights - I'm certainly taking adaptive leds, but lasers seem to make difference if you have 650 meters of straight road with nothing going in front of you - and I'd be hard pressed to find such roads in southern Poland.
- 360 cameras with parking assistant - seems cool, but how is quality of that? I tested exactly one car, where I was happy with how fast it was parking, and it was BMW i7. On C-klasse it was awfully slow, as it was on V90. Okayish in XF. Also, probably something I would use extremely rarely.
- Sport brakes - this option is cheap, but does it actually change anything except for colour? It does not say clearly on BMW site. Two different salesman answered it in two very different ways...
- Galvanized/crystal additions inside - this option is cheap, but what does it actually change? Are radio buttons actually metal/glass with this options, or is it still plastic? Original plastic is a bit cheap feeling, so I'm leaning into that.
- Gesture operating - it was fun thing to play with, but 5 series have physical buttons, so I'm not sure if I would use it anyway.
- Rear steering axle - is it worth it for this car? In my current Jaguar XF I never felt I had any problems with fitting into parking slots, and salesman also said it is not worth it - on the other way, in test i7 it was magical feeling, and you can never be too agile!
- Driver assist package professional - it contains Active Cruise Control, lane assist and a few safety assistants. As before, in different cars it behaved vastly different. In V90 it was almost autonomic, in XF it was severely lacking, in C-Klasse it was... okayish?
You may ask why asking and not taking for test drive - I certainly will, except here test drive cars tend to not have many of those options. I've spent a lot of time trying to find a dealership where I could find both Nappa and Dakota in 5 series in the same place, and there are issues with test drives longer than 20-30 minutes.

2023.03.29 10:51 DakotaJade19 Interac: Second Interview Just Finished!
Trying to remember all of the questions I was just asked - I applied via Link Japan Careers (JLC) for their Oceania role as I'm Australia-based. The interview was done through them, and is my first video interview with them (first was just a phone interview).
I'll list every question I remember down below (some may not be exact, I didn't write them down during the interview), but feel free to ask about anything! :)
I literally only JUST finished this so I don't know my result yet, but thought the questions themselves may be of help for anyone who hasn't yet gone through this step.
Can you give a brief summary about yourself, and why you are looking to teach in Japan?
What is it about Japan that you are interested in, why would you like to come here specifically?
You mentioned your current role is in ____ industry and you would want to maybe pursue that in the future in Japan, based off this what does your 5 year plan look like? And to follow up, how would being an ALT in Japan help you get there?
Do you have long term plans to stay in Japan?
Do you see any reason why you would terminate a contract early?
What do you think an ALT does in the classroom?
Why did you pick an ALT position to apply for, and how does it benefit you?
Is there any particular reason why you prefer to go for a public education system, and teaching younger children?
Let's say your JT (Japanese Teacher) is veering away from the lesson plan for that class and you notice, and the class is no longer covering the required topic/s. What would you do in this situation?
You mentioned that you would like to build a relationship with the JT, how would you go about this?
There isn't a set marking/grading system for a lot of Japanese schools. Based on this, how would you monitor a child's progress in the class?
If you notice that a child is not picking up on lessons very easily, what would you do in this situation?
Typically the ALTs will have a few hours in the middle of the day in between classes where you aren't teaching, but you'll still be at the school. What do you see yourself doing in that time?
On occasion, someone from the Interac team may come out to monitor your progress and sit in on your classes. How do you feel about receiving potentially critical feedback on your performance?
You've mentioned this briefly before, but would you be open to living in a more rural location and potentially driving to schools?
Most school days start at around 8:00-8:30AM. What time would you try to arrive to the school before classes start for the day?
You've mentioned on the last call that you have tattoos. Are you comfortable ensuring these are fully covered while you are at school?
What do you expect when you arrive in Japan to teach as an ALT?
In case you haven't studied or researched Japanese culture before, do you think arriving here will be a bit of a culture shock to you?
The intakes for Interac are usually around August-September, or Spring the next year in around March-April. The closer intake usually fills up quite quickly and may result in fewer job vacancies available. With this in mind, do you have a preferred intake period you would like to aim for?
What does professionalism mean to you?
In one word, how would you describe yourself as a teacher?
I'm sure I missed so many others, but these are the ones I can remember off the top of my head! I'll add any more that I may have missed as I remember them, but please feel free to use this as a guide for your own preparations - and good luck! :)

2023.03.29 10:50 TomatilloFlaky5394 Feeling bad emotionally, frustrated with myself and spouse.
We're both in our early 30s. Together 13 years, married for 8 of them.
Basically I'm frustrated by feeling like I have to parent my spouse and then feeling annoyed at myself for being annoyed. Sometimes I think I'm just a demanding, irritable person who shouldn't be in a relationship with anyone. I get annoyed because I feel like I have to manage the house alone. His one thing is that he's supposed to cook and I do everything else. Two or three nights a week is take out(pizza usually), another is chicken nuggets or hamburgers or hot dogs, another is 'make whatever yourself'....it boils down to like 1 or 2 non junk food meals per week. I tried looking up new recipes he might like, but he has no interest in them. I tried offering to take over cooking but he said no to that, too.
He never knows where anything is, if we have it, or where to get it if we don't. I sweep nearly every day. I'd ask him to lift his feet so I could sweep under the couch or desk sometimes if he was sitting there. Recently, he asked if we owned a broom. He seemed to genuinely not know. This sort of thing happens all the time. Do we have x? Where is y thing that you have told me where it is several times now? He got irritated with me once for putting the new vegetables beneath the older veg that should be eaten first, claiming I 'hid them' and made him 'forget to use them' in some food he was making. It's like I'm a storage account for him to deposit tedious shit into so that he can withdraw it whenever and not have to be bothered himself.
I tried the 'stop doing things for him' thing for awhile but it just doesn't work on someone so intensely oblivious. We had pizza. He ate the last slice. The empty box sat around our house for 3 months before I got fed up and tossed it. I did the communication thing. Please pick up after yourself. Didn't mention the 3 month old pizza box, didn't want to make him feel bad. Things get a little better for awhile, the empty jar of whatever will sit to be cleaned out for a week now instead of longer, etc. Baby steps I guess, until it goes back to the way it was. He just feels thoughtless. If I don't tell him every little thing, it's my fault, he shouldn't have to just remember stuff for himself.
It's also hard to have any serious, intimate conversation. I'm not saying we need to talk about our feelings daily or something but like I made a comment about the sunset being beautiful, he doesn't have to care, but does he have to make a stupid goofy face instead of just being like 'yeah nice whatev'. Does he have to go on rants about how boring everyone is for liking xyz hobby or movie or music or whatever so that I never want to share anything about myself or interests with him again? Does he have to make mocking(they are jokes and i get it and maybe im just sensitive) remarks about what I'm doing while I research for school work? When I try to ask him something serious does he have to just deflect with a joke even when I'm begging him for a serious answer? When I watch a comfort movie that I used to watch with my recently dead grandma does he have to mock the movie? Like not even me making him sit and watch it with me, just me watching it on my own and he can't help but make some remark. I don't expect him to like everything I like, and I'm not going to be mad if he says "I don't like that thing". But I do feel pretty shitty when he has to make actively mocking comments about it. It's his way of joking so I know he probably doesn't mean ill will but it's also just like exhausting. I'm tired. I don't want negative, mean joking anymore, I don't care if this makes me humorless or frigid or whatever, I'm just tired. I feel suffocated inside myself because sharing something just makes it a target for jokes.
He doesn't even listen to me half the time I'm talking anyway. I was trying to have a conversation with him over lunch. In the middle of it he disrupted me to point out something some birds outside were doing. He apologized and I'd forgotten what I was saying at first, and I asked, "What was I saying". As I asked, I was starting to remember and pick up my train of thought again but then he said, "Uh....I don't know. Something about *vaguely related keyword to the topic I was on about*? I don't know." So I just pretended I'd forgotten altogether and let it drop. I get this can happen, I'm not trying to be upset about a one time thing. But this happens all the time to the point that I just don't want to talk to him anymore. I don't feel listened to because he's so eager to just make a joke or something. Even when I'm asking him to do or remember something, I don't hear "Okay," and then a joke, it's always just a joke. I just want to feel heard and understood!! It's extra annoying because those very things I'm asking you to do, you don't do them because you were so busy joking you forgot I asked about them!
This has probably made me less interested in sex too. I think a lot of it has to do with a medication I'm taking, because I did genuinely have a harder time with sex once I started taking it. But now I wonder how much of it has to do with my frustrations with him. I kept refusing him, more irritably than I should have admittedly, and it finally blew up. So I tried giving him oral more often, but he wanted sex. I told him I thought the medication was making me have a low sex drive, and that I just didn't want sex. I didn't want him to think it was his fault. I felt guilty, so I said I'd do it for him anyway if that was what he wanted. He did and I think I messed everything up permanently because now I'm repulsed by sex. Not with him, with anyone, ever. At first he was grateful. I try hard to orgasm every time because he was unhappy if I didn't, and I still can't manage it 100% of the time. Then it turned back into a problem, he said he saw me cringe sometimes while we did it and that this made him unhappy and feel like I was doing this out of obligation. I apologized but internally felt so dead. Like yes, it is an obligation, I explained this to you, I said I do not want this, I'm doing this FOR YOU and you AGREED that was what you wanted and now it's still not enough?!!? You notice me cringing and crying and still get off and somehow I'm the one apologizing at the end?!? I mean I get it, sex is important, getting none is a dealbreaker so I'm trying, but what am I supposed to do? How do you talk to someone who never seems to remember or listen to what you are saying to them?

2023.03.29 10:49 jeepersoh Anything I can do about this or do I just have to suffer?
Bus stop right outside my house. About 30-40 kids all stand outside from multiple different schools. Car was dead this morning, so had to get it jumped which meant whenever it was leaving time it was also peak sprog going to school time.
4 kids all stood in front of my car, and wouldn’t let me out. Now these kids stand in our driveway, and on grass in our garden but this isn’t an issue. But I beeped at these children, revved, and threw up my hands and they still wouldn’t move. 3 of them appeared out of nowhere so I stalled my car trying not to mow them down, and we were dead again.
Was too late to drive to work at this point, cause my car needed jumped again, so I had to fork out money for a taxi, and then realised that I’m not actually delusional and scraping up walls there’s about 4 of them that lean up on the wing of my car with their bags and that’s where the little small scratches are coming from.
Not too sure what I can do about this, because I asked one of them to move this morning and she just looked at me like I had four heads.
I’m usually gone before they get the bus, so I’m not bothered about the being let out because I usually miss them, but sometimes it’s cheaper for me to get the bus to work or it’s my day off so they’re still leaning on my car regardless.

2023.03.29 10:45 FrostyDreamy I (F23) need to know what he (M23) was thinking
I never got closure from my previous relationship and I just need to vent real quick. My ex cheated on me quite a few times, the first time I caught him texting his ex and I tried to tell him to just go back with her. He refused and insisted he wanted to be with me and I was in shock that this was happening so soon, our relationship was too fresh so I didn't know what to think.
Next time I caught him was after we had our first baby, I was 2 months postpartum and he was texting some random girl planning to meet up with her. She contacted me saying how he was talking to her and how they were supposed to see each other but he didn't show up. She felt the need to apologize to me and I sincerely tried to leave him right then because if I'm not who he actually wants then what are we even doing? He called me crying and begging to work things out, saying how he's just "in a really dark place" and he was just feeling so alone. We never lived together because he didn't have a stable place for us to stay.
I decided to give him one more chance because love does that thing that makes you a bit too dumb, plus I tried to believe we could make things work for our baby to have both parents consistently in her life. But then I noticed how he wasn't trying to better himself and after our baby turned 1, this guy moved an hour away. He doesn't have a car so I had to make the drives for our daughter to see him. This trailer he lives in legit feels like a safety hazard. He still wasn't consistently keeping a job or trying to figure out how to make transportation more fair for us. I can't be somewhere that doesn't feel secure.
I finally broke up with him and he refused to accept it, he cussed and yelled, called me every name in the book, and yet still tried to persue me. Every time I would bring our daughter to see him, he would pressure me into having sex with him. Even when I tell him I don't want to. Then once I finally agree to give him another chance, he then tells me he's seeing another girl.
How do I process that information? I was literally stressing the month prior about whether or not my period was coming, going through pregnancy scares and then I find out he's seeing somebody else. I'm over here thinking maybe he will actually try to improve his work ethic, maybe he's finally going to figure out some type of transportation, things were almost looking that way and then he dropped that on me.
Now it's been almost a year since that happened, he still doesn't have transportation, he still isn't keeping a job consistently, his current girlfriend doesn't want to meet me or my daughter, I'm convinced she hates that he has a child, and now I'm struggling financially because childcare has been pretty tough to figure out.
Td;lr - my baby's dad cheated on me many times, I took him back bc I didn't want my daughter to grow up without her dad, I tried to finally end the relationship for good and he hated that, I decided to take him back and then he confessed he was seeing someone else. Why did he want to get me back if he was already seeing someone else?

2023.03.29 10:44 Cold-Body4067 What are some things I can do daily to actually start living and enjoying life?
I'm in my early 30s and have suffered from clinical, treatment resistant depression for almost 20 years. I live in a HCOL state rent a single room. I drive a shitty car that I'm 2 months behind payments on because I had to pay what financial aid didn't cover for my tuition. I go to school online but probably won't be able to graduate this year due to several labs I still need to complete, but I haven't been able to find a place that will let me yet. My day-to-day is spent working 2 dead-end jobs (one at night, and the other in the morning) over 70 hours a week. I'm often stressed, anxious, and physically tired. I'm obese and just started going to the gym a few months ago, started off great and lost a little weight, but gained it all back due to my dog dying recently, and right now I just feel...stuck. And discouraged. Most of my life is spent either working or in my room. I have a few friends, but find it difficult to regularly socialize--mostly due to me not feeling up to it most days.
I go to therapy weekly, and am on the right combination meds that take the edge off and help me function, but am still deeply unhappy. I feel depressed because I feel like I have nothing to show for my life, which has been fairly lonely and hard due to growing up in an abusive, narcissistic household. I have PTSD from the things I went through. All my friends and peers are out their living their white picket fence lives and I'm just here...in my room...lonely and alone. I have no gusto for anything. Nothing to look forward to. On paper, my life looks...like it has promise. At least that's what everyone, including my therapist, says. But most days I can't see the light at the end of the tunnel. It's like I have all the right tools, but something stops me from using them the correct way.
I want to change. I want to have hope that things will change and get better, but how?

2023.03.29 10:43 FanNo8142 Help, I’m miserable !// parenting ?
Before i start my very large rant, I would just like to say, I love my parents and am grateful for everything they have done for me HOWEVER, I just can’t seem to add up the remnants of my past 18 years. Okay, so where do I begin ? I’m 19 this year and I don’t think I can handle the constant loop of unproductive days followed by waiting for what seems to be FOREVER to go to bed to avoid everything. I was a bright kid who talked using dramatic gestures and the people loved me. I’m not sure what happened but I then became this extremely shy kid who had major separation anxiety/social anxiety. I cried during my first year of school and cried for many more years. I loathed the idea of being around other kids and demanding teachers for 7 hours and I never woke up without trying to find a way to call in sick until i was in 10th grade. I’m lonely, I feel sad and jealous seeing others at the shops. Eventually, I feel as though I’ve transcended into a void. I feel numb. Growing up, I had friends, some that left quickly others that were my friends for many years. I always felt left out . My parents are religious but aren’t strict upon it to a large extent. They did, however, use religion to deprive me of what would have made many childhood experiences and memories. I was allowed to go out with friends, maybe twice in my life without supervision , the other four with my parents being there. I begged for a phone and got one in high school but wasn’t allowed to message or call any of my friends ( I lived near my school, so the phone wasn’t really of any use ). My life consisted of going to school, then back home. Any outings had to be with family. I never face timed , or went to houses. I never watched any popular shows or movies because any show/movie that involved human actors was deemed inappropriate by my mother so I was never able to relate with any of my friends. My friends often told me that I probably didn’t consider them as friends since I “never wanted to hang out”. In reality, I didn’t want to make my parents look bad and simply told my friends that I didn’t have time to go to their plans. My 14 year old sister stays in her room all day with the door closed, when I until now have someone barge in on me. I always told to get out of my room and be with family so I basically lived in the living room. Remember the COVID-19 lockdown? I did all my zoom meetings in the living room when I had a perfectly spacious room. My father told me that he liked this new house better because everyone is together. No double storeys to keep people separated and the rooms are all near each other. After graduating high school, I thought I would become a more improved version of myself in uni ( college, whatever you want to call it ) but boy was I gullible. I got my learners license 3 years ago but I don’t have my license because : 1- Anxiety 2- I saw no point in having one. It’s not like I was going places. I made all my classes online except for one day on campus. Despite all of my parent’s friends asking why I didn’t take the bus or train, whenever I brought up their comments, my parents would answer for me. “ Oh but you’ll be scared since you’ve never used public transport. You’ll be so lost or even miss your train!” True but I’m not scared. So my mum offered to drive me there. Getting ready, she’d tell me not to wear baggy clothes because it didn’t look nice. She’d also comment on how certain things made me look like a ball ( thanks to that extra 15kgs lockdown gave me ). Then she’d tell me to wear something different in case people notice that my pants were the same as last time. Then, she’d ask why I used my own shade of foundation, I needed a lighter one because fair skin looks nicer than tanned. She’d finally end up wearing something that looks like all her other black coloured clothing and we’d drive off.Around 40 minutes away, she decides to stay at uni since there’s no point in driving all the way back. I definitely didn’t enjoy it when she walked with me all the way to my class on the first day. Or when I have to walk back to the units coffee shop to meet my mum and walk back to the car together. Don’t get me wrong, its lovely spending time with parents but being privileged plus being heavily dependent on your parents gives other the impression that you’re an ignorant and spoilt snob. Or you’d get made fun of for not knowing how the outside world works. She makes sure to emphasise how she never has time because she always has to take the kids to school and take me to uni. Anyways, then I’d go back home, try to study with all the noise, end up wasting my entire day making empty promises to myself and have nothing done. Then at around 10-11pm, mum would announce that she’s tired and when she’s tired, we have to give her all of our electronics ( phone, iPad, laptop, switch, everything ). Then I’d have to wait until she waked up in the morning until I get my things back and thankfully she charged the phone but oh god she forgot the iPad this time, looks like lectures will have to be watched later. Nowadays, she tells me that I can keep my IPad /laptop with me until late so that I can study. I refuse each time. Why? I don’t enjoy pity. So now I sit here, not doing my skincare, not happy with my weight, no motivation to study, not bothered to complete simple tasks such as making my own bed, not going out with friends despite my parents getting mad and telling me that they aren’t stopping me from doing so. Well, surprise surprise, I’m pretty sure that none of my friends message me anymore since I never put in the time for them. Now, I watch my 14 year old sister FaceTiming and messaging all her friends. I look back and see my 9 year old sister FaceTiming her friends on her iPad, playing Roblox together. It’s messing me up and I sure as heck am jealous. My parents do love me but all of this pointing out my flaws, treating me like a child, not allowing me to be able to grasp a single fragment of a childhood memory really has turned me into this miserable, anger consumed person. I need to learn to suppress certain feelings while emphasising others. E.g. I could be so emotionally driven, anything would make me cry ( children’s movie, celebrities being cheered at, etc ) but I also can’t tell the difference between nervousness and anxiety. When I see my mother or sister cry, I feel awkward, sometimes annoyed. I’m not moved yet I remember what I need to do in steps and I only take action out of guilt so step one, see if they need to be alone, step two coax them, step three move in for a hug and so on. SO so sorry for this rant, was never given psychological help so I’ve kept most of my problems to myself. This would only accumulate to a quarter of my issues. Any advice is greatly appreciated !
P.s - I can’t move out ( religious reasons ) and I’ve never ignored my parents as it would make them fume with rage so I can’t do either of the two.
