2021.12.02 21:46 impartialperpetuity Dissect Podcast
As a fan of Mac, I was so excited to hear about the Dissect Podcast choosing Swimming in Circles as their subject for this new season. I had no previous experience with their podcast, and after a brief bit of research, was delighted to hear about such a unique opportunity for an in-depth look at some of Mac's music... (The episode of Faces was a huge pleasant surprise).
But I'm posting here today because, as I've listened to their episodes, I can't help but be disappointed or annoyed at the fact that they (the hosts) tend to take a lot of Mac's lyrics and (seemingly) "try" to apply them to drug use... "Drugs" or "substances"..
Listening to Swimming since it's release, it's a very deep piece of art, and surely there are infinite interpretations to it, as there is any piece of art and it's interpretation by the human mind. However, It seems to me that drugs seem to be the "go-to" topic of inference if anything is even possibly and remotely suggestive. The book however, states otherwise, that during the Swimming era, things were going relatively well for Malcolm and his mental/physical health. Now, admittedly, the Swimming creation era spans a few years, which includes the end of the relationship with Ariana, who notably left him due to circumstances related to various factors related to his drug use...
I personally have noticed that I get sick of the host(s) chalking his in-depth lyricism up to drugs in various places of each song.. reduction to drug use is such an easy thing to do if you're trying to, given Malcolm's history of lyrical honesty into his personal life struggles, and using what knowledge is available through other sources publicly...
However, in my mind, when I hear certain lyrics, I've had such different and deeper interpretation to some same specific parts, that are being referenced by the hosts, and it seems like they could go to deeper, more humanely connected places, but they stop at "drugs" cause it's eayt and ambiguous....
I suppose I also come from a place of addiction myself, and I really do hold Mac in high regard.
Mac helped me find myself, and my spirituality (you can PM me for more info).
I could sit while the world literally falls apart to his music, and it could all make sense.
So It's hard for me to hear his most personally honest, most in depth, and sonically "perfect" album, just get dumbed down to "hes talking about drugs" so often. It's so simple and easy to toss any of his lyrics up to that.
It seems (to me... [Very important]) that the hosts of the podcast really haven't gone to the depths of drug use and addiction, AND, the philosophies/concepts that Mac regularly contemplates and displays....
ANYWAY... Just wondering if anyone else feels the same way.
That the convenient "answer" of drug use is used when contemplating the meaning of Malcolm's lyrics in the Dissect podcast?
Could just be me, and that's fine.
Hopefully my in-depth analysis isn't over the top or repetitive... It is a character flaw of mine..

2021.12.02 21:46 notastarfan Went to McDs to see how the vaccine pass was handled/abused
So I tested out the passport at McDs for lunch. Ate in to observe.
1) Nobody on door, but when I went to a kiosk, a woman came up to me and asked to see my pass. No problem, but she only sighted it, didn't scan it.
2) She then asked two school girls behind me who were all 'oh what? A pass? No I don't have mine on me'. She explained that they'd let them get takeaway this time, but they couldn't eat in.
3) While seated, I watched a hippie couple walk in, then the girl yelling and storming out "Can you believe you need a fucking vaccine pass to eat here!"
4) 2 girls and 2 guys came in together. The two guys immediately went and sat down in the corner away from the counter, so to me it was clear they were hiding. The checker spotted the two girls, asked them, they did the 'uhhh' at first then pulled out their passes on their phones. (Hypothesis: is it 'uncool' with young people to use a pass?). However the checker had spotted the guys so walked over to them to ask (they were sitting behind me). They literally played dumb for a while - 'photo id?'. One guy finally showed his, but the other guy did not have one, he was stalling. Then I see the two girls waving at them and pointing at their phones. The guy looks at his phone and goes 'oh there it is!' and shows the checker, who walks away satisfied. Yep, one of the girls had sent him hers, and they giggled over it when the came and sat at the table with the guys.
So even scanning wouldn't really have helped, without checking photo ID this system is a bit useless, unless I'm missing something.

2021.12.02 21:46 StrawberryOwn8423 If you had a universal basic income, would you quit your job?
I keep on hearing arguments that research shows that people who have UBI don’t quit their jobs. What this doesn’t show is that these people only had UBI for a limited amount of time. It would be dangerous for them to quit a job. If UBI is passed, it would be “forever” or at least for a much longer time span than these short social experiments. I for one would quit and travel the world or just do whatever I wanted. So would a lot of people. I don’t see how UBI could continue funding itself as people stop working. Either that or the benefits will decrease to the point where you still have to work to earn a monthly livable income.

2021.12.02 21:46 lunavicuna Help me not hate hospitals
I'm in a position where I must give birth in a hospital (was originally planning a birthing center). and I'm basically terrified. I don't even know if I'll be able to labor in a hospital. I think my labor will probably stop.
I want to have an unmedicated birth, and it seems that medical professionals don't care about patient consent. A woman says I want to lay on my side, they flip her on her back anyway and she's in too much pain to put up a fight. They lie to you about things being 'required' when you can actually decline (this is actually coercion of your consent). People come in and out of the room as if your lady parts aren't on display and you aren't in one of the most vulnerable positions of your life. I could really go on and on.
Can someone help me see things in a more positive way?

So, I have been thinking about getting into therapy for a while now and I’m just wondering how I should go about it. I have insurance and have looked up who takes my insurance. But should I just call them up and ask if they are taking new patients? Or should I ask my GP for a referral first?

2021.12.02 21:46 IDKHowToAdultPHVer A lost work newbie who's not sure where to go, nor what to do
Throwaway account, so I graduated as an average and subpar engineer (no fails, but no latin honors) roughly a year ago and decided to forego the idea of taking the board exam due to the pandemic and me miserably struggling with online reviews (lol). Ended up with work instead, I currently work in an IT firm (Project Management related) and recently marked my first year at work.
One year in and to be honest I've been overly anxious at work because my management background only comes from org work and I've got no formal education re: PM. Well I'm planning to try and take either CAPM or Google Certification but it's sort of expensive and my schedule is horrid because of my workload. Even more so that the mentorship is non-existent, I have no PM to look up to and can parallel my work with while at the same time the pressure of handling 10+ private and public clients and more then 7+ unique projects is really challenging. Not to mention that because of how we are lacking of manpower I even have to to QA, Systems Analyst, and others tasks at times. Working 6 days a week, sometimes more or even holidays? Although to be honest, I do think it may be a part of my work load to begin with?
I honestly want to move on from my current workplace and find a new company but I'm really not confident with my skills or what I have learned with this current work specially how this field is both incredibly demanding and competitive. Not to mention that my projects aren't really completed yet.
While on the other hand, board exam will most likely take place by either Q2 and Q4 next year and it may be tempting in a way. Although to be honest I'm not really inclined to take it because I'm not confident that I'll make it through and I've lost any form of belief in myself but admittedly, the satisfaction to be called engineer by other people is unparalleled. A part of me is convinced I'd rather take ITIL + PMP or CSM, or maybe even shift to my desired industry, cybersecurity instead of taking that board exam.
So what do I do now?
a) Continue my current work, and just don't think much about it because my mind's all over the place or I'm just being OA and overthinking it?
b) Reconsider to take board exam to satisfy me ego / fulfill my contentment? And figure out what's next?
c) Find another work place, maybe try in NCR?
I know this is a lot to digest but this has been bothering my mind for more than a month. Thank you in advanced for all the help and replies.
Ask ko na din if what are other companies that I should be looking at or aim to be with if I want to continue my path as a PM in Tech? Thank you.

2021.12.02 21:46 FancyBrownie 2021 XSE Hybrid humming noise?
I just got a new XSE Hybrid and so far love the car. The only thing of slight concern that only I seem to have noticed is a humming/buzzing noise when going over 50 mph. I’m not sure if it’s just normal road noise or if it’s an actual problem.
My wife believes it’s just normal noise and no different than other cars. Anyone else experience the same or am I just paranoid because it’s a new car?
