Coming from a person having a quarter-life crisis being just a baw hair from their 30s.

  1. You are still extremely young but don't fixate on this. Telling yourself "I'm still young and have plenty of time to do X or fix the Y" means eventually you will be too old for those things. Unless you will fall ill or there will be some age restricted obstacles, it's not true. You can learn new skills in your 20s as well as your 40s if you are determined enough. Shifting your career? No bother, I know heaps of people that did just that in their uni days as well as ones that are long into their existing career.

  2. Don't worry about this. If you fell behind the pack with your studies, means it wasn't for you. Whether it was the nature of your course, or maybe a uni in general. Going to university is not for everybody, just like doing manual labour is not for everybody. Use this opportunity to ask yourself a question, WHY did you drop out. Is it because you were too lazy? If you had true passion for it, you would find motivation to do it.

  3. No shame in that. I know people that are in their 30s and live with their parents to save money for their first home. Use this opportunity to enjoy your life without certain worries. The time to pay taxes, rent and for your food will come and you will look back fondly on this period of your life :) It would still be a good idea to chip in for utilities and food to your parents if you have means to do so. Will probably make you feel better about living there.

  4. Good. Do mistakes. You learn more from your mistakes than from the things you did right. But the important thing is to analyze WHY you made those mistakes.

  5. Maybe check if there is a career advisor near you/on your campus? They offer free advise based on what interests you. Ask yourself what are things in your life that you are passionate about or what kind of stuff do you enjoy doing. Remember, if you are passionate about something, there is a way to make it into your career. There is a reason why some people that are truly passionate about video games, they go into streaming career, and they are very successful. Me for example, I love playing video games, but I don't see myself doing for a full on career, because I want to keep it as my private hobby, and I lack certain traits to become a successful streamer (English is not my first language, I'm self conscious and I lack certain charisma).

  6. Do it. Only by trying you will learn anything about yourself. Hypothesising will only get you this far.

That's my advice :)

I used to have an app and it would count 30s every 30 min and I didn't have to press anything to reset it. It also had an option to vibrate rather than beeping (within app not phone wide)

I cant achieve that with a timer

CoachDom OP ,
@CoachDom@lemmy.blahaj.zone avatar

I don't know of such a FOSS app

Not to be an ass, but that's what I was asking about

CoachDom OP ,
@CoachDom@lemmy.blahaj.zone avatar

When I have the timer on and the screen is locked and it runs out it gives me an option to stop but not to reset and restart. So I have to unlock my screen got turn the clock app change to Timer tab reset and restart.

Im asking if there is any FOSS app because there is plenty of apps on PlayStore that are doing it but im on GrapheneOS

CoachDom OP ,
@CoachDom@lemmy.blahaj.zone avatar

Just found a webapp that does just that

No.1 Apparently not present on uBlock Origin, which makes it not a problem for me (though it's shite that they are doing it anyway). I don't use YouTube that often anyways.

No.2 You are not loosing a lot - it's most likely some crappy video about a guy slipping on a banana peel or some shit like this - 99.9% you are not missing on much :D

See as much as I dislike the company, I can see how it would make sense from a business and logic point of view. They are paying for the servers and, to some extent and form, for the content, and by using any ad blocking content you sabotage their earnings from this platform. I'm surprised they are not blocking browsers with said plugins, but that would cause a major uproar. But then again, not much competition around...

It's the best feature of the Fediverse - you have so many options!
If one instance doesn't work for you, there WILL be one that agrees with you better.

I'm not LGBT or Q but this is my instance because I whole heartedly support people and I appreciate that mods here do their best to separate from pure human garbage while retaining connection with like and different minded groups.

Disco Elysium - Switch or Xbox/PS5

As in the title - its on sale on all consoles at the moment for a very good price and I was wondering what console should I get it on. I like the idea of playing it on the go and I thought as it looks like it should run no difference what console im playing it. But I heard some mixed reviews regarding the performance on Switch.

Correct answer is sitting.

Three scenarios:

No legs folded - standing

Rear legs folded - sitting

All legs folded - laying down

Oh man been off the personal plan on gmail for a while (only have gmail for work because my office is on gsuite) and my pal showed this to me recently and I fucking rolled 🤣 I had tutanota an proton for a while but no SMTP support forced me into zoho which is still a millions time better than gmail

The fact that it goes to a malware website makes it 100 times better

I get that it was delivered with bugs and server issues. I get that it wasn't what was promised to the players. But being toxic to the devs? Fucking get a grip. You don't like it? Get a refund. And probably don't preorder in the future.

Reduce first but have attainable goals. Go easy and steady.

For some folks cold Turkey works best but it might not be for you.

Most importantly, find a reason that’s really important to you.

Maybe try sports - something measurable. It easier to tell yourself no after a cardio as you realise how it ruins what you just achieved.

Thanks for you answers so far.

My point is, she is still mentally there (I think) so if she wants one of those subscription buttons, she can 100% get it herself.

I was just thinking, as an extra layer of security, if I’m in the area to help out.

CoachDom OP ,
@CoachDom@lemmy.blahaj.zone avatar

That is really cool, but too techy for me. I need something plug and play.

But thank you so much for this suggestion and code offer!

CoachDom OP ,

Thank you :)

We are not even that close, we have a casual chat once in a blue moon and she is very nice. I just want to make sure she can get help when she needs it.

I had a similar issue and two things helped.

  1. I once heard that people like to talk more than listen (which was true for me). In addition, a great conversationalist is a person that ask and listens - not the loud, funny outspoken one. People will have a laugh and will listen to you for a little while, but will eventually get bored because they didn’t have an opportunity to participate themselves. So what I started doing now is asking a lot of questions, even if I’m not 100% genuinely interested in the answer, but eventually the other person will say something that will bring us closer together and will give us something to talk about. The second rule of this game, is to try as hard as possible not to say anything unless asked. This is the hard part :D But once you catch yourselves giving opinions/story telling unprompted - stop - back to asking questions.

You wouldn’t believe how much it changed my life. I used to be extremely nervous about going out 1v1 even with my close friends, out of fear of “What are we going to talk about?”“What if there is going to be an awkward silence” etc. Now I thrive and I love hearing from people, what’s new in their lives and so on. And I noticed people like to talk to me a lot more too!

  1. Realise that “opinions are like assholes - everyone has got one” - and this works in two ways. Respect that your opinion is not definite and final - listen and maybe somebody will say something that will make you revaluate your “truths”. Learn. That’s the only way to grow. Also, don’t give opinion unless asked - sometimes people just need to vent. Not always you need to be there to fix things or correct them.

Just be respectful, wait for your time when called upon and enjoy the conversation. You know your opinions - by saying them out loud you just repeat what you already know. It’s time to find out what other people are thinking :)

CoachDom ,
@CoachDom@lemmy.blahaj.zone avatar

Not 100% true. Some people are more egocentric, like us, but they never look out for any other way of being. These people, will talk and talk and talk for hours, unprompted. Nobody asks them, because they will talk anyway.

You, my friend, made a step forward to becoming a better conversationalist. You asked us for our opinion. Make a change if you feel it will make a positive impact on your life. Observe how your family and friends respond :)

Start small!

CoachDom ,
@CoachDom@lemmy.blahaj.zone avatar

Don’t forget about the number one - you!

But in this case, I feel it might be positive for both sides. Just don’t do something purely for the sake of others if you don’t feel it makes you happy as well. It’s unhealthy and unsustainable.

CoachDom ,
@CoachDom@lemmy.blahaj.zone avatar

That’s a great rule “three before me” - worth noting down!

This is just ridiculous - prosecuting Yaroslavl Hunka makes sense, as he himself was a part of a nazzi military outpost.

Prosecuting or using it as a political tool against Chrystia Freeland makes absolutely no sense as it was her grandfather (!) who was at involved in the nazzi business.

Blame granddaughter for grandfather’s sins…

I don’t know what’s going on politically in Canada, but this is just pathetic in my opinion.

Edit:

Michael Chomiak, Freeland’s maternal grandfather whom she’s repeatedly cited as a political inspiration

The link to her essay mentions her grandfather a couple of times, but never “cites as a political inspiration”. Just to give a historical context.

Terrible piece of journalism

CoachDom ,
@CoachDom@lemmy.blahaj.zone avatar

Are you trying to imply I’m a nazi apologist for simply refusing to punish anyone for the crime they did not commit?

What if you grandfather was a rapist - would you find it necessary for yourself to go around, admit that your grandfather was a rapist, apologies for this and suffer consequences?

Anyone who worked for or supported Nazis should suffer the consequences. She did not.

CoachDom ,
@CoachDom@lemmy.blahaj.zone avatar

100% agree - but when did she say that?
