2021.11.29 20:01 Nuceloptido Offering: Spanish or English/ Seeking: Mandarin
I started to learn Chinese 7 months ago using this paid app called Pimsleur. I have improved a lot and I'm able to have casual conversations, but I don't get to practice with other people because I self study.
I have tried language exchange through the internet before, which is basically two people that want to learn each other languages get together and practice. But it haven't work as good as I expected, we always end up talking only in English, and is hard to know how to practice and introduce the language to the other person. In real life you have a context to talk about, like lets say you go bowling, or to some kind of workshop, or to play baseball, volleyball, tennis... You name it. Through the internet the context is only: I want to learn your language, you want to learn mine, so… where do we start? -awkward empty chat-
So I thought, what if we combine that with videogames? It immediately gives us a context depending on the game we are playing. You can introduce phrases like, follow me, don't go there, grab this, do that, come here, don't die, try making this… and if you don't understand or don't know how to say something you just have to ask! You can have a lot of fun in the process, and get to use right away what you are learning, and get to meet cool people… anyways. I have tried to find someone to do this, but haven't been lucky either. Reddit is my last hope, then I'll start to pray. So if you know a cool community, or a good place where I can try to find a videogame-language partner I would appreciate it. Or if you are interested yourself, I can exchange English or Spanish, and I want to learn Mandarin. About the videogames, I currently play Minecraft and Phasmophobia the most. I don’t play that many but I'm open to suggestions.

2021.11.29 20:01 mrjosecuervo3000 I have a personal work related question
I have a 4-year B.S. degree from a great university and work in a laboratory. I previously bartended for years and never really felt any financial strain until trying to use my education full time. I have 2 years of applicable experience and great references. Unfortunatrly I accepted a base pay of 31,000 about a year ago which equals $2,000 a month (I know I should have asked for more, but being a smaller company I thought they just wanted to make sure I would be a good fit and make sure I pulled my weight before paying me reasonably). After coming in most weekends to help out (for free), not missing a day, and staying late to finish work for 6 months plus, I asked for a raise a month ago and was essentially told that my boss and the other lady who has been here 20 years only work here because their partners make the money in the family. My boss did not give a straightforward answer as she doesn't give the raises. What are my next steps? I like the people I work with but the pay seems unreasonable.
TLDR: I asked for a living wage and was told this company doesn't pay a living wage. What do I do? Is this common?

2021.11.29 20:01 CabinetDisastrous830 Young adult/teen fantasy book
Second try with a more specific title! I read this book when i was a kid, maybe around 2010 or so? It was a chapter book about this girl who was a servant to an evil sorceress. This girl lived in the sorceress's castle where there weren't really any other people, but there were magical animals that really liked the girl. The sorceress' favorite food was turtle soup but the girl would trick her and use mushrooms instead. One night the girl decided to escape and run away and the sorceress sent some kind of magic wolf things after her, but she managed to outrun them and she found this safe haven place in the middle of the forest. Any help is appreciated! This has been driving me nuts!

2021.11.29 20:01 Putrid_March_5384 How did you get your foot in the door when you were green? What's your story starting out?
I'm from a small mountain town. All of the work we did and what I learned was for equipment for plows and tractors. Now I love in an area surrounded by specialty machine shops.
I want to learn and get into the industry and get the heck out of retail. But I dont have much of an idea on where to go outside of knocking on doors, pitching my case, and hope I can land an apprenticeship during some of my free time.
Tech school really isnt an option for personal reasons, unless it turns into a last resort.
I dont know anyone in the industry either.
I'm tired of checking out groceries, and I'm ready to start making cool shit again. I can only go so far with a dremel and a 1960's cadet vice on the floor...
Any words of advise? What's your story?
What would you do again and what would you avoid?

2021.11.29 20:01 Askittishcat Iconic poses
What is your favorite character's iconic pose?
I'm looking for more statue ideas. Next up I'm planning to make Kenny standing menacingly with a crowbar and Lee in a protective stance holding an axe?file=TWD_GOTY_Edition.png) (and at some point I need to finish painting Clem with her bow).
So, what are you thoughts on the rest of the characters? Please include links to images if you can.
FYI: I can make poses that include common, easy to find props, like knives, bows and axes, but unique items like Chairles could be hard to find a model of.

2021.11.29 20:01 Strangersgambit Cat cries for a specific toy and paws at it, but won’t actually ‘attack’ the toy?
First post here, so my apologies to the mods and community if I put the wrong flair on this.
For some context - I have two male cats, both neutered, and just over a year old each. They were together when we adopted them, and were together before that; they get along very well. Always playing and cuddling, though the shorthair seems to be the dominant cat. The black cat (might be a bombay, not sure) is the cat in question here. The other is as I said an american shorthair (i believe). The shorthair tends to hog the toys during playtime.
I try to play with my bombay boy’s favorite toy, but the shorthair lad has decided it’s his favorite, too. The shorthair is far more focused when it comes to play time - the guy’s got moves and he pursued the toy relentlessly- and it seems like the bombay is hesitant to go for the toy because either he’s afraid the shorthair will plow into him going after it at the same time, or he is trying to let his brother have a turn… the problem is he never takes a turn for himself, and the shorthair always comes running if I try to play with the bombay alone. There’s never been a fight over a toy, never even aggression, but he just watches the toy from a distance, no matter how I move it around.
I don’t think separating them for play time solves the issue either; I did try at one point, but the shorthair just cried and clawed at the door. He didn’t like being excluded, clearly, so there has to be a better solution.
Any advice is appreciated; they really do get along fantastically, and I want to make sure my boys are getting enough stimulation.

2021.11.29 20:01 benclifford247 Anyone else noticed the new 4k stickers are attached with some insane glue that you can't remove from the packaging? If you do the glue separates from the paper and it is no longer a sticker, it also bend the paper beyond all recognition, which is especially noticeable with the reflective print

2021.11.29 20:01 angelofthecosmos where in the world is the balls sound effect
we know it, we love it: that one sound effect of a woman saying "balls" with reverb & enthusiasm. but like... what is it? where can i find it? i know kurtis uses it in plenty of his videos but i can't find it isolated on its own. maybe it's from an old video and i genuinely just can't remember, but if anyone knows what it's from, i'd love to know!
