2022.01.22 00:05 VigilantHylian Do you feel like you weren't given enough instructions?
Growing up I was never given many direct instructions on how to do things that I think were supposed to be "intuitive".
Don't get me wrong, I was the "the most brilliant and intelligent person in any room" growing up, according to my parents, teachers and peers. I didn't (initially) have any issues learning skills and doing the homework and learning the curriculum. The problems were elsewhere.
I found myself struggling in areas that everyone else didn't, all the areas outside the classroom. Other people were coming up with games to play, music, songs, dances. They were creating stories, or drawing. They were designing robots or superheroes. They cooked things with passion, and had adventures. But for me there was something missing. With schoolwork I could understand and just follow the curriculum diligently and arrive at the intended conclusion, but for anything else... I seemed to be on a different planet.
I was always given vague input like "You can be anything you want to be!" and "With your smarts, you can have any job you want!" but it left me directionless. No matter how I tried, I couldn't do things that others were doing, and I think the problem was instinct. I didn't have any instinct to "learn to draw" or "make music expressively" or anything like that. I was an ***excellent*** piano player, but could only play the sheet music put in front of me.
The loose and "instinctive" nature of being creative doesn't make any sense to me. I think that if people had sat down with me and explained the creative process to me, given me some kind of direction, and "taught" me how to be creative, I would have gone down a very different path.
I'm now, at 30, having spent like 20 years wishing to be an artist and trying and having no idea how people just "magically" create things with their hands, had it click that I need process. I can't figure it out myself how to.... create like others do. I need to be able to follow some kind of plan and guide, from start to finish, to completely and thoroughly understand it. I need to learn how to "be creative" and take ideas and flesh them out. I need to learn how to develop the skills I need to do the things I need with my hands. I feel so ashamed that I've always been praised as so smart yet I would cry when my cousin would draw a generic superhero with a cape he made up and I didn't understand how he did it. I know we're all flavours in the neurodivergent community but I truly feel like I fit into some odd niche of extremely process-driven learning that requires extreme structure and direction.
If anyone else resonates or understands it'd be appreciated if you could chime in, or even give advice.

2022.01.22 00:05 hotpocketdamn for those that went to a drop-in site for a test, has anyone gotten text messages about clicking a link from the people who also messaged you during the vaccine?
I live in Oakland got a test recently that was free.
ever since testing with at a drop-in site, I've gotten text messages to click a secure link. it's the same one when I got my moderna jab but it's still odd to be message so often. its the same messages from the number I got when I got my first two jabs.

2022.01.22 00:05 baethief Can't connect headset to PC without audio splitter??
This is driving me fucking nuts. I just recently built my first PC but on console it's always been so simple. Ive talked with windows support and they couldn't help. I have messed with every sound setting in my PC. There's no way I can't just plug my headset straight into my PC to get it to work?
My mobo is a strix B560-g with audio ports for Mic in, Line in, Line out, Rear, C/Sub, and a Type C audio port. Corsair case with 1 audio port on the front panel. Software is Windows 11 Home with Realtek Audio.
I began to hate Realtek. There's something fucky going on there. Audio is directed through windows settings can also be directed through the realtek software and it confuses my console-brain.
I think I have tried every combination of Windows output/input in relation to Realtek output/input in relation to which audio port I am plugged into. If anyone can figure out this mystery I will always think about you every time I put my headset on

2022.01.22 00:05 The_Samurai-42 I can literally hear mom badmouthing me while I'm stuck in bed.
So it's exactly what it sounds like. My mom has been talking smack about me when it comes to things completely out of my control.
She's brought up how "my lazy ass" didn't feed the dog today. Oh I'm sorry mother I can't even go to the bathroom without throwing up everything in my stomach. Oh and get this, she's the one who got me sick.
She's also acting like the tornado incident was way bigger than it actually was and she even changes things to make herself sound better. Like I get not wanting to look weak but literally saying I was just standing around and not going to shelter. No mom I was waiting to make sure you got out of the house. She says that as soon as we got to the storm shelter she slammed and held the door closed because the tornado was there within 30 seconds. No I was standing there with the door open making sure our neighbor( it was his shelter anyway) got inside. The tornado didn't strike for another 5 minutes. Mom during all this was sitting in the corner shaking in fear. Don't blame her one bit for that. Then she tries to claim that our house is destroyed because of the tornado. Again all that happened was a leak sprung in the back corner where the sheet metal had peeled a bit (It's a mobile home) The house was still livable we should know we stayed there for a full week
What was her immediate thought when we get a new place to stay. 66 Beers in 2 days. And at least 8 beers every night.
