Maybe someone might help if the right person knows my story
Originally I wasn't going to get into detail on my story because I didn't think it was needed, people could use it to help find who I am, and I didn't think it was anyone's business. But after reflecting on the back and forward of a thread someone made, and the words in the back of my mind that maybe if the right person knew then others can be helped. Maybe my failure in life can make others have a better life.
I decided to give a deep dive into my story. Note, I will leave out exact details because I still don't want to be found. I've already had pro life groups message me on here telling me not to off myself. I am very sure they believe they would be doing good if they sent cops to my place so I can be put into a nut house. But the way I see it is as a real risk of taking away the 1 thing that can end my suffering.
So I would ask for people to share my story. Maybe the right person will hearead it. Maybe some government program or something will be made to help. Or at least, maybe assisted suicide will be legal to help end the suffering of people who are not terminally ill. I know nothing can happen if I don't share and I expect nothing to change even if I do. But there is a chance something might change for the better if I do.
Side note: Sorry for the typos. I wrote this in 1 sitting. Also note, none of my degrees were in English :P. So forgive the bad grammar and what not. Something to note because this is a mind dump. My writing towards the end gets worse. Sorry about that.

BTW I know my point will get lost in the mountain of text. But it shouldn't be ignored that 85% or higher autistics who graduate can't find a job. It is the single highest disability which can't get a job, bullied even as an adult, extremely high suicide rate, it's the lowest likely of getting any economic assistance or disability even with others having a higher likely of having a job, and there is no real government program to help other than locking us up. Society itself looks down on it, and makes excuses like "I think I have" or "I think the person I work with has". Some even go as far as saying "I'm", but it turns out they never been tested. You wouldn't say that about almost anything else. But due to that, people use that are a saying to say whatever numbers, whatever hardship, or anything else is fake.
_________
I'm currently 30 something years old. I have 4 degrees. An AS in aerospace, AS in IT, AS in networks, and BS in industrial. I went out of my way to learn how to fly a plane, how to code, statistical analyst, I have certs in lean manufacturing, I have certs in leadership, and so on. I've literally been in the news paper because NASA flown me out due to my rover designs, and I was train by NASA to work on rockets when I was doing my aerospace degree. (They flown me out to more than less tell me due to the hiring freeze that I won't be getting a job or be able to be an intern. That was in Obama and Biden's term BTW. But at least I got a free trip out of it and pictures.)
During my first degree (aerospace), the college I went to was near KSC. There was some agreement that NASA would train us, allow us out there, and in hopes we would get a job when we are done and go for a higher degree in aerospace. This is similar to how Boeing and other companies have programs to help train their future workers before coming on the floor. The problem with this is my final semester man space flight went away, and the idea of us working out there went into smoke. Then to make things worse, about a year or so after I gotten my degree they made the program into a BS due to how hard it was. I don't think it was an ABET, but still. I believe during this degree I was documented as autistic. It might of been my next degree.
During this time I worked a number of jobs from retail, helping at a vet, cleaning toilets/floors/animal waste, writing, and a few others. Many times I would work for $8 A WEEK. Sometimes I worked/helped with food being my payment.
After this, it was obvious things were getting worse so my parents and I moved a few states away since my parents gotten jobs there. Before heading out, I picked up a manufacturing job in the area we were moving to, and I thought thinks were starting to work out in my favor for once. I was wrong. The place I worked at treated everyone horribly. They were hiring, firing, and rehiring people because they had an agreement with the state if they hire x amount of people then they would get something like $250 million from the state. But the loophole was each person hired counted, but it never counted how many kept their job or was hired before. So there was a strong mentality of firing people over nothing or no reason. Many who stuck around were horrible people. Every day I dealt with workplace bullies from people about double my age at the time. Every day it gotten worse. Then to top it off, the boss tended to join in, and by the time I was fired for no reason I was about a week off from crashing my car into a tree at top speed to end it. I was just trying to figure out how to make it look like and accident so my parents would get my life insurance.
After I was fired, and after I couldn't find a job for a while. My mom took me to the local community college so I can try another degree. We figure IT might be worth me getting into since I was already good with computers. I actually had a good time in this degree because the director of the program was nice, and he tried to help people out to a point. About mid way the director asked why wasn't I going for my networking degree. Something it is just a handful of classes apart, and I can graduate with both. That turned out to be helpful since the networking degree was a 2x2 into my BS.
Anyways, during my time of doing this degree/s I had to only take 2 classes at a time since beyond that I was overloaded, and realistically I wouldn't been able to get the aerospace BS degree anyways since my grades from the AS was so low due to the load. I applied to some QA jobs while doing this degree since I was certified in doing some of that, and one laughed me out of the interview. IDK if they did that because I was 24 at the time, and they were close to 50. Or the fact that I'm autistic. Maybe a little of both. The guy did mention my age a few times. Anyways, all the questions I answered 100% right. I even wrote down the questions when I got to my car, and looked up everything to see if maybe that is why the guy was laughing.
I ran into situations like that once in a while. One job I did pick up I had to go through hurdles to just get it. Take a test to prove I'm not mentally retarded or anything like that. 2 hours on my first day the boss fired me because they mentioned to the plant manager the day before I was working on my IT degree on my off time. What is sad is my pay topped out at what I started due to all my certs and what not, and it was only $20k. And during my time there all I heard was everyone bad mouthing everyone who worked there due to the drug use in the area.
Also while I was working on that degree I learned how to code. Basically, I heard about the learn to code crap and since my school wasn't going to teach me I decided to pick up those skills on my own. I wanted to make some Android apps to see if they can take off. None of them did, and I figure maybe it was marketing or experience. So my parents drove me out to museums and other places so I can ask if I could code an application for them for free. One of them I 100% completed. It was for a historic burial ground. Basically, I went on a walking tour of it and notice how people were complaining about the paper map. So I scanned the map, and had it where when you touched the number the information of the person would come up. I was able to secure a meeting and my hopes was high with this. That quickly went away when it was clear the historical place was going to do nothing with what I provided and basically was lying to get me away. I offered it for free, and just asked them to place QR codes so people know where to download the application. Another place, I wanted to develop something similar with them I kept getting blown off. (In the next degree I had to use the library to take a proctor test, and I heard them talking shit behind my back. The same ass holes that wasted my time.) I even went on some trips with my dad when he had business trips. Similar things happened in those areas. Where I couldn't get a meeting, I kept getting lied to, or whatever instead of flat out rejected.
Now some might be wondering why was I giving this away for free. The thought behind this was I would be able to use this as resume material. That this is why I wasn't getting beyond the interview stage when I interviewed for coding jobs or why I wasn't getting a call back at all.
During this time I took a YouTube channel I had in the past that I used for basic game how-to videos like Eve Online, and I turned it into a tech how-to and educational channel. The thought behind this is I could show potential employers what I knew and hope it will help me get a job. This never took off, and even today it's about 12k subs, but only gets an average of 100 views per video. The topics I covered was a mix of cyber security, coding, windows, server, network engineering, and a number of other things. I even gotten into aerospace, stock market, and a few other things. Some of it I bull shitted to act like I had more going for me than I did. But this was when it was obvious people wanted to see some confidence in what you're saying. Still, I dislike how I did that.

By this time I figured nothing was going to work out for me, so I tried freelance work. I found I was really good in SEO work. But I quickly found it was impossible to get work due to the flood of bids that undercut mine simply because these others would lie and they came from 3rd world countries. I tried hiring some to figure out what is going on, and quickly found it wasn't going to work since there was no way to filter myself to the top vs these others. Where an average person hears 1 person says they can do a job for $300 but this other says for $9. Then lets go for $9. So I killed that off.
Between this point till the end of my degree I tried making apps a few more times, tried YouTube throughout, and I asked my school for help. They tried, but most places didn't want to pay. I found 99% of the problem is I am not good with people, and I needed a people person to help. Since I didn't have that, I was SOL.
Sometime during this degree I was told about the Navy doing games. Where they wanted subject matter experts in their field to help them figure out how to best do things in the future. So I said OK to this. Like it wasn't paid, and I figure it would be fun (I was wrong about it being fun). Anyways, we found AI against human, the human almost always loses. But human and AI working together takes out AI alone each time. Like AI against human, you have something like a 12% better results. Human + AI you have a 64% better results against AI. Those numbers might be not right and I'm saying them as an example only. But since then, every so often the USA Navy sends me text and email when super important stuff is going on (like what you should do in this virus) because their system has me marked as a contractor.
Anyways, towards the end of my degree I was invited to look around Cisco. While there the recruiter talked to a group of us, and he gave us their contact info and what not. I sent them multiple emails and even tried on Linkedin, but never heard anything back.
Somewhere within this degree I was also dealing with my sister coming in and out of my life. My sister when I was in 6th grade had to be taken away to my other parent because my sister keep forcing herself to get into drugs and bad people (my parents lived in 2 different states due to jobs, and it took several years before they got back in the same house). This time she was "escaping" some guy who was in human trafficking, smuggling, and so on. During her time with us she made it a living hell. She never really gotten away from drinking, drugs, and so on. Almost every day she constantly yelled, she told plenty of lies to my extended family which put my parents and I into question, and she even tried to trick me into killing our parents over and over. Eventually, my parents ended up kicking her out when she was at my grandmothers about 2 hours away. That was the last I seen of her until she had her kid.
Well this isn't 100% true. About a year or 2 within it, my parents asked all my family if they heard from her for them to contact us to let us know she was alive. They agreed, but we haven't heard anything. One day several months later I was doing maintenance on my computer and remembered I put a tracker on my sisters laptop with her permission. At the time I explained what it did, and that she can use it to track her computer if someone steals it. I logged in and found it still worked. I told the tracker to activate the webcam so it would take pictures, it would send me screenshots, and so on. We found out my sister was in contact with my grandmother, my mom's sisters, and most others. We found out she was living in CO, and figured out she was involved heavily into drugs. My dad, because he works in the federal gov he was told around that time my sister was stopped by the TSA a few times carrying slightly under the max allowed amount of $10k. In short, the DEA knew she was smuggling money, and the DEA knew about what was going on with them. Remember this!!! But shortly after I killed the tracker since we knew our family was not to be trusted, we knew she was alive, and at a given point it was driving us up the wall. We pretty much agreed to cut ties with everyone involved, but my mom decided to not.
I believe it was after all of this, but before I got done with my IT AS I joined the Freemasons. Long story short on that front is at the time I believed my life was getting better, that I was on the right track, and I wanted to be around a group to start calling them my friends. Plus I was getting more and more hungry to see if I can go into the political field. Note that I didn't directly join to go into politics. But I hoped that would be a bonus. What at first seemed as I was making friends, that quickly faded away. Most of the members were 2 or 3 times older than me. They were so out of touch to the current problems, and there wasn't much to keep me there. I did endowed because I seen the good work, and I wanted the group to keep doing things. But as I got busy with school, that mostly faded. And what kept me from going to another meeting in a good number of years is the fact that I have come more and more to the realization how fucked I am. Like when I went to most all the meetings and helped out, I still had a ton of hope and I was trying to go out to places asking if they needed an app. Also the other thing that somewhat shown I won't make friends there is the fact that the people I talked frequently with. I notice none of them even tried to contact me. (When I was in HS I noticed something similar with 99% of my family. I use to call them weekly since I was states away. But I noticed they never call me even on my birthday. So I just stopped interacting with them to see how long it will take for them to check up on me. They never did.) I will admit I do miss it to a point, and thought of going into the Scottish Rite before I stopped going. But IDK anymore due to how life is.
During this degree I was invited out to NASA's Stennis Space Center after NASA liked my rover design. I took the offer and the group I was with on our last day they mostly just told us there is no jobs available due to the hiring freeze. On the way back we met with my grandparents on my dad's side (the only ones who my sister didn't interact with because they are religious and they have so little money that she can't get anything from them). We met them to see where my granddad grown up at and to meet some family that I never seen or heard of before. A day or 2 later on the way back I notice my grandmom was a bit odd. When we got to my grandparents house, my aunt showed up with her husband. They were drunker than drunk. She blamed us for kidnapping my grandparents. In the past she blamed me saying I hacked my grandparents computer, and I had 11 groups looking into her computer. And she went out of her way to have it where my dad stopped paying for my grandparents cable and net (which they can't afford) and blamed us for spying. But this shocked me. That she was accusing us for kidnapping them. After that I figured out my sister had a hand in this with her lies.
After all of this, I ended doing a round about way of using my pell grant money to pay for their basic net, get them back on their service ($10 a month), their own paid subscription of Netflix, and shared subscription of YouTube TV. I mostly did this because other than my parents I consider them to be my only family.

Anyways, when I took my BS all my classes were 100% online. Unlike the CC where I went to class in person, I found while this being the only way I could've done it due to no funds. It was stupid since I couldn't network to hopefully get a job. During this time I kept trying to get into remote work, and I think in 1 month I applied to 10,000 jobs. And for the next 2 months I upped it by an extra thousand. Some gotten back to me, but most didn't. Some interviewed me, but most didn't. Many said remote, but weren't really. Like they wanted remote but you were mostly called in every day. I was applying to so many jobs that I had to apply in other countries.
I think it was during this degree or right before it my dad gotten a number of bee hives, and part of my duties went into that. I hate it because the obvious, and in order to sell the honey my parents are going through my mom's sister. The only good that came from the bees in my opinion is over the past few years my parents started looking into buying a farm. The idea was originally something that can mostly keep up itself with contracts. And it can be a safety net for anyone coming after. But between that thought and now, my parents said I can be a farm manager. I went out of my way to suggest this because as time went on, it became more and more and more obvious how screwed I really am. Anyways, it turns out even if you have the money and income to pay off loans of a given amount. Thanks to Obama and Biden, you legally can't get a loan for anything over 10 acres without it being some type of farm loan. This is unless if you're building a manufacturing plant on it or something like that. And then, you can't get a farm loan unless if you already run a farm.
How fucked up is that? You have the income to pay for a loan (in this case my parent's joint income they could), but because it's over 10 acres you have to have a farm loan. And legally you can't get one unless you already run a farm. You can see who I'm not voting for. Anyways, because we have bees they said they will make that classified as a farm, and then we can do business.
Somewhere mid way of my degree my parents found a 200 acre farm they liked. We went out there, and found it to be worth while. Long story short, the owner spent about a year to 2 years jerking us around. Not wanting us to get the farm evaluated which is required for a loan. And saying they wanted half a million, when the place at best was worth $350k. After my sister moved back in, the owner sold it to their family member for $250k. Since then we think we might of found a place or 2, but it's iffy. The entire point of the farm is multi-year crops. Something to keep the workload down, with low competition, but high payoff like lavender or grapes. All the work and what not to be contracted out, and a company deals with it.

Somewhere mid way of the degree I started getting into 3D printing, laser engraving, and stuff like that to see if I can make money. After several years I still haven't gotten enough to pay for the $1,000 3D printer setup. I only gotten 2 sells with my laser engraver, and that was by force. So that is dead.

Anyways, sometime last year my sister came back with her kids. She told my mom the guy she was with rape the kids, and she was fearful of her life (same guy from before). Before my mom got her, the guy kicked her out. My parents rented her a hotel so she didn't die from the cold (my sister says she was homeless during this time). It turned out she wasn't there most of the days, and it was expected that she was whoring herself not because she had to. But drugs and drinking. Eventually my mom gotten fed up and told my sister to get her kid's papers in order and get ready. My mom bought a ticket and the same day got there. She found out my sister didn't have their bags packed, didn't have their papers in order, and I guess forgotten about it. While getting the stuff ready, my sister told my mom she was afraid that the guy was going to kill her. After my sister gotten back we had a hurricane coming toward the area and we asked my grandmom (mom's side) to stay away. She didn't listen and brought a few people to see my sister and her kids who just came out of a crack house. My grandmom I caught her a number of times talking shit about my parents and I. When I went to show my sister where the security cameras are since my sister said the guy put cameras in the doorknob (had wires coming out of it) and shower head (and I guess was selling videos of her). My grandmom said some bullshit like they are just going to change the location of the cameras. After the 4th time of hearing bull shit, I ended up letting her have it. But still it never stopped. My grandmom saying I was a guest that would never leave. That I'm like trash that needs to go. During this time I heard my parents tell my grandmom the DEA and FBI knew about the guy in human trafficking, and how the guy is smuggling drugs. But the law enforcement literally said they were waiting for him to kill my sister before they moved in on him.
Anyways, after all that was said and done my sister 100% started up drinking in no time and the hell that went away when she was gone the last time came back. But this time I could 100% see something was off with the kids, I could see they weren't healthy, and Holocaust camp. I started working on the kids to get them better, and gotten them a good way with the help of my mom and dad. My sister has nothing to do with her kids during the holidays outside of photo moments, and my sister even broken her daughter's (1 year old at the time) leg and more than less walked away. During this entire time I dealt with her recording us, her sneaking off and leaving us with the kids, her constant yelling, and so on. Due to this we increased the amount of cameras from 4 of them on the outside and 2 on the inside to 8 on the outside and 12 on the inside of the house just to cover our ass. One of her tricks was to insult day after day and hour after hour my mom. Then get me PO so I would try to protect my mom. After which, my sister would 100% calm down like nothing happen, pull out her phone, and record it.
In the past I threaten my parents to show the cops the video of her because I have video of when the guy kidnapped the kids, and we had a swat team around his house. Around 12AM my sister was drunk, loud, and acting up on the deck. My dad went out there to tell her to stop. She thrown a water hose at my dad and it split his nose. She went inside and started slamming doors to the point a clock fallen off the wall, and then she started stomping on it. Like that isn't the worse of it. My parents said if I was to do that then I will be kicked out and the kids will go back to their dad. Later it was found that he raped the son on the trip, and at some point he was allowing people to fuck his son (4 at the time) for money. People being both male and female. (What allowed the guy to kidnap the kids btw was a judge in my state breaking the law. The judge never gotten ding for it. I don't remember his name, otherwise I would've given it here)

Anyways, to make a long story short on that side. Her and her kids are still living with us and it's a living hell many days. I honestly believe my sister is a sociopath. Like a legit one, and my parents agree she needs to be tested after the guy goes to jail. Also there is a number of times throughout this my grandmom and my mom's sister helped my sister break court orders and they knew it. I already declared when my dad's parents die, I won't be going in that area anymore. And if I do, it won't be to see any of my family. I can get deeper into that, but I think everyone has the point.
Towards the end of the degree I 100% gotten burned out. Normally I was taking 1 to 2 classes at a time, and even at that I had the hardest time with any classes that weren't tech classes. Like I had to beg one of my teachers to pass me, it was that bad. I believe I am still dealing with being burnt out.

Anyways, late last year I ended up walking the stage for my last degree. I've told my mom I don't want anyone to go other than my parents, and my dad's uncle (he stayed far outside of this crap with my sister, and he has been OK to me. Also I wanted him there since his kid died, and he didn't have the ability to see someone walk. Plus my grandparents on my dad's side refused. I'm guessing due to family drama that was caused by my sister.) Against my wishes my mom forced it where my sister, her kids, my grandmom that called me trash, and my mom's sisters showed up. I'm still piss.

Around this time I was getting desperate to find a job, so I started trying to use my contacts. The director of my last degree said he wanted to help, but couldn't help since I don't have work experience in IT. The people I let cheat off of me in return they would help me get a job, they ghosted me. My mom was using her contacts, but even after interviewing me no one wanted to hire me. Like one place I applied for a networking job, and they told my mom they weren't going to interview me since I didn't put anything about coding in the resume. My mom told them about how I coded, and during the interview they only asked me about database admin questions.
About this time I pivot my YouTube channel from tech how-to to gaming. I tried a little Star Citizen, but lately I've tried Flight Sim. Making how-to videos and what not. They get extremely low views, and I'm thinking that is going to tail off soon. IDK what to do on that front.

After the virus kicked up I started looking into my backup plan. Because I knew how to fly small planes, I figure I could go for an airline pilot spot or the military. It turns out both won't hire you if you're autistic. The airline thing requires knowing someone to start with, but they won't even look at you if you're autistic. My dad used his contacts to figure out what is going on with the military. He found out that you need a waver, but it's near impossible. And even then, you need to get a waver each time you get a new CO. And if a CO or anyone doesn't like you, they can easily use your autism to get you kicked out. The reason why there was policies to keep autistic people out is many have been bullied to the point that there has been permanent damage mentally and many times physically to the autistic person. And there is even investigations on this because it has gotten so bad.
After that, my hope went completely away. I tried the normal method, but obviously no one wants me. I tried starting my own company, but after so many tries that has never worked out. I even tried writing a book, painting, and things like that and I haven't sold a single one. Even advertised it as coming from an autistic painter in hopes it will bring a buyer.
When I was trying to figure it out I kept asking myself how does these people afford these $20k patents when most don't make any money. I ended up asking around and found out about product licensing. Currently I'm on my 3rd product I'm trying to license, and no one so far wants anything I have to offer. Some even call me back and spend half an hour on the phone with me. After which, I hear nothing. I figure it's similar to interviews. Where the person gets a vibe because I'm autistic, and that blows the entire thing.

I'm honestly at the point I just want to fucking retire. I want to have enough money where I don't have to worry about what happens if I get kicked out. That I see a $10 game, and I can buy it without worrying about things. Factorio has been a game I keep looking up videos almost daily for the past 4 months, and I hate how I'm worried about just that little amount of money.
The only things that is keeping me from offing myself this second is what kept me in the past. Stupid things like wanting to play a game (cyber punk), or that it will make my parents sad. I figure in 2022 if my life doesn't get better. I might end things. It would be nice to just find some nice women with a good job, create a family, and play the stay at home dad.
Getting a job is pretty much impossible for my disability. You might want to check out the unemployment rate for people with autism. Like it's predicted to be around 85% of people who HAVE a college degree but are also autistic are unemployed. In fact, there is a major gap between autistic people and other disabilities who have a degree or not. People with autism have some of the lowest paying jobs compared to others. I've seen studies talk about people who are autistic are 9 times more likely to off themselves. Being autistic I'm far far far more likely workplace bullying (and I have in most jobs I've been on. Even when I was cleaning toilets for $8 a week because that is all the work I was able to get). In the USA, if you're blind, you automatically get the full amount. If you have anxiety problems you have a high chance of getting the full amount ($750 a month btw). If you're autistic and only autistic, then you have near a 0% chance of getting a cent. Even blind people have a higher chance of getting a job than someone who is autistic. Even people with missing body parts have a higher chance. How fucked up is society that not only there is no disability. But there is no programs to help someone who is autistic to get and keep a job? Even more if they are educated like myself. And worse off, how fucked up is it that not only all this other stuff. But me wanting to end my life is viewed as shameful, taboo, and enough to be locked up in a mental hospital.

Like I would love to run for congress or governor. But I have no doubt in my mind me being autistic will stand in my way and be used against me. Similar how the dems had no shame of trying to use Trump's weight as one of the reasons he shouldn't be in. So I don't think I can fix the system directly. Again, please share this. Maybe the right people will see this and maybe at some point the system will get fixed. I just hope this won't be used against me, and that is why I ask for people to not try to figure out who I am. Like I know if this info gets out, and this is linked to my name. This will kill my chances of working in ANY good IT job since why would you trust someone that to some might seem unstable with quarter of a million dollar code/parts.

___________________________________

Side note:
  • Have I tried talking open about this?Yes I tried once on my YouTube channel to see if people would help. This never happened, and it damaged my channel. I didn't get deep into it and I deleted the video. I've also tried to talk with others about it, but I keep getting blown off.But for the most part, the problem isn't emotions. It's that I can't get a job, that the gov isn't going to help, and that I'm fucked due to variables out of my control.
  • What is the biggest problem?Society. Look it up right now on 85% of autistic... and in Q&A sites you will find people say some BS like that isn't true because they THINK they are autistic. When I was asking about the military, some were saying yes autistic can join. I THINK I'm autistic and I THINK some around me are. This mentality needs to go.Same with the how the spectrum is open now older people should've been on it. Guess what. I've been around researchers, engineers, and others like that. Hell, if it paid well I would try to get my PHD in astronomy, and I interacted with plenty of them over the years. I only met 1 autistic person that worked at NASA, and he was going out the door and he was from the Apollo age. Not a single other person I met even came close. So stop devaluing the problem. Keep in mind, that 85% is those who ARE counted. How many stopped looking for work or make $500 or so a year (which causes you to be labeled as having a job) and they aren't on that? I'm sure the real number goes up to 90% easily.
  • What do I hope comes from this?My hope is maybe through my shit life, it might somehow make the world better somehow. Like it would suck to have this much bad luck, this much I have to deal with. But at the same time have NOTHING good that comes from it. I hope for it to reach someone with the power to actually push for a fix to this 85% problem. A fix being in a way that
  1. Help in us getting a job or making a company (hell, if you're a female you get help. Why not us)
  2. 100% ability to get disability so we don't have to work. I think this is the best solution since realistically the other 2 requires a massive shift from society and this one is quicker and easier.
  3. And/or assisted suicide laws to be allowed for those who aren't terminally ill. I know I would take that option if aviable. Part of the reason why I don't off myself right now is fear of doing it wrong in a way that makes my life worse, and fear of the pain.

The following is evidence of some of my certs and degrees. I blacked out a lot of things so you can't track down the date, location of the school, my name, and a few other things. Again, I still don't want to be found. I am only sharing this because my word by itself means nothing. And I honestly haven't thought of how out of the norm what I done is. Keep in mind, I only did it to survive and I live with it every day.
And this is something everyone needs to keep in mind. I did what I did to survive. So I can have a chance of living a happy normal life. Some have called me a Renaissance Man. Some called me a savant. I don't view it that way. I did what I did to survive. I did what I did because I knew doing nothing won't get me anywhere, and I thought doing this will get me a chance of a normal life. I did what I did because other than doing nothing, it's the only other possible action I could think of to get me to a normal happy life.
NOTE: I have to scan my degrees. I didn't notice that wasn't done until I looked for them for evidence.
There is a lot I'm not including. Like a lot of IT certs that basically said I know x technology. I've gotten a load of them through my BS. There is also a lot of certs I know I don't have like my OSHA stuff I lost it a while back, NDT certs I have no idea where they are, and there is a number of others that past work places that required me to train but kept the certs so I had to retake it if I worked for anyone else (like driving forklifts, lean manufacturing, and a few others)

Chapter 9: Regret

Eswick Jailhouse; 2 April, Year 329 of the Hallowed Era
Chester Carr yawned. His shift was only halfway done, but he was already dreaming of crawling back into his warm bed in the barracks. He hadn’t slept well at all, having been intermittently woken by the carousing of his fellow guards outside, before dragging himself out of bed for the second night shift.
He glanced towards the open window to his left. It was still dark outside, but perhaps not as dark as the last time he’d checked.
Three more hours, he thought. Three more hours, and I’ll get to go back to bed.
He yawned again. Just as well that he got the night shift, really. It had been stupidly warm out, considering the season. Gods only knew how hot it would be once the sun was up. Both the door and window were open to let in a breeze, but there was none to be found.
His family had tried to dissuade him from taking this job, and some days he almost agreed with them. “But you’ll be with criminals all day,” his sister had said. “What if they get violent?” As it turned out, she hardly need have worried. He was more in danger of being bored to death than attacked by any of the petty thieves, drunkards, and gamblers in his cells. Still, the pay was good, and it was better than the alternative of working at his brother’s market stall. If he had to say “Welcome to Carr’s Carpet Cart” one more time, he would have killed himself.
Chester drummed his fingers on the old wooden desk. Perhaps he should walk around and glower at the inmates some more. Yes, there was the new inmate who’d been brought in the day before. Big fellow, but seemed meek enough. Hardly a word of complaint when he was tossed into the cell, only a stupid grin on his face. A drunkard, most like, but by now he would be awake and sober.
He stood up.
“Excuse me,” said a voice. “Are you the guard on duty?”
Chester turned. A man was standing in the doorway, sporting a long ponytail the color of Aunt Jacinda’s carrots. A bow was slung across his back, and a quiver of arrows hung from his belt.
“You can’t bring weapons in here,” said Chester. “And anyway, visiting hours aren’t until noon.”
“Oh, I’m not here to visit someone,” said the man with a smile. “I’m here to break him out.”
Chester had never been the quickest guard at the jailhouse. Before he could react, a woman, her head shaved bald, leaned in through the open window to put a dagger at his throat.
“Please sit back down,” said the redheaded man. “And stay quiet. We would really rather no one got hurt.”
Chester obeyed.
The man tied him to the chair and stuffed a rag in his mouth. “It isn’t too tight, is it?” he asked “I’ve never had to do this before.”
“Would it kill you to talk less?” asked the woman, climbing in through the window.
“I’m only being polite, Sister,” said the man. “He’ll probably lose his job for this; no need to make his day worse.”
The woman scowled. “Let’s just get this over with.” She flipped through the ledger on Chester’s desk. “Yep, here he is. Arrested for fisticuffs, public drunkenness, and damage to public property. Come on.”
The redheaded man nodded, taking the keyring from its hook. He turned to Chester. “I hope you don’t actually lose you job for this,” he said, then ran down the hall after his sister.
Most of the prisoners were sleeping, but a few stirred at the sound of footsteps.
“Yer not a guard,” slurred one of them, sounding more asleep than awake.
“Observant,” said the red-haired man.
The bald woman glanced down at the prisoner. “Don’t talk to them, Flame.”
“I’m sure they’re harmless, Sister,” said the man, but nonetheless ran a few steps to catch up with her.
“Flame?” called a voice from down the corridor. “Frost? Is that you?”
“That depends,” replied Flame. “Will we have to break you out of jail again any time soon?”
“Yes, yes, I’ve learned my lesson,” said the voice. A face appeared at the bars: dark, handsome, and with a comically exaggerated frown. “I promise, I’m the epitome of contrition.”
Flame unlocked the cell door. “Out you go, your contriteness,” he said. “Try to be more careful next time.”
Chester glowered at them all as they passed by again on their way out. The dark-skinned man—the one who had been a prisoner until thirty seconds ago—gave a mocking bow. “Thank you for your hospitality, good sir,” he said, “but I’m afraid I must depart.”
“Garth, let’s go,” hissed Frost.
“Of course,” said the man called Garth, and with a wink back at Chester, exited with his companions.
Outside, the city was asleep, the streets empty, and a round moon hung bright in the sky. Garthniiel stretched, enjoying his newly regained freedom.
“You’re lucky they didn’t figure out who you are,” said Frost.
“How could they have known?” asked Garth. “I’ve been careful.”
“You were arrested.”
“I escaped, didn’t I? With help, of course.” He paused. “But you’re right. Perhaps we’ve overstayed our welcome here in Elyria. I think it’s time we returned home to Ajjraea.”
“Finally,” sighed Frost.
“… just as soon as I figure out how.”
Wilderness; 2 April, Year 329 of the Hallowed Era
The two horses clip clopped along the road. Deena stared resolutely ahead as she rode. Not that there was much to look at; just trees, trees, and more trees.
“If you have something to say to me,” said Avenel, “then say it.”
“Why would I have anything to say to you?” asked Deena.
“Because you’re still here,” said Avenel. “You haven’t tried to run off.”
“I don’t have anywhere to go, remember? Everyone I know is gone, and from a fire that I didn’t set.”
Avenel looked at her. “You’re upset.”
“I’m—Of course I’m upset!” exclaimed Deena. “You’re a murder! A-a murderer and an arsonist!”
“You already knew that I’ve killed in the past.”
“Yes, when it was your job. Not when—when—whatever it was I saw.”
“So you saw me?” asked Avenel. “In this dream?”
“It wasn’t a dream!” said Deena. It had felt too real to be a dream. “And I didn’t see you, exactly. I saw… through you? Like it was your memory.”
“How do you know it was me?”
“Because I saw your reflection,” said Deena. “And because you didn’t deny it. You’d deny it if it wasn’t you, wouldn’t you?”
Avenel didn’t answer.
“You don’t have to believe me,” said Deena. “I know how it sounds.”
“And yet, there you are, in possession of knowledge that no one else has.”
Deena looked at her. “Are you saying no one knows this? What about Lord Vallus? Or your wardsister?”
“Officially, the fire was an accident. Only Ephraim knew the truth.”
“O-oh,” said Deena. It made sense, but somehow it still surprised her.
By noon, the forest had given way to plains, vast stretches of wild grass as tall as the horses’ knees. Here and there, a lone cottage or tree broke up the monotony in the distance.
They stopped by a pond, and the horses drank greedily, having been sweating beneath the sun all day. Avenel took out the cheese and cut a piece for Deena.
“No thank you,” said Deena coolly.
Avenel sighed and set down the cheese. “Would you like to talk about it?”
“No,” said Deena.
“Fine,” said Avenel, getting to her feet. “I’m going to fill our flasks.”
Deena eyed the cheese where it sat in its wax paper wrapper. She tried to ignore it, but a short while later, when her stomach began to growl, picked it up and devoured it in three quick bites.
It was mid-afternoon when they passed through a farming settlement, just a cluster of houses that called itself a village. One of the houses was an inn, so Avenel suggested that they stay there for the night. Deena had no objections; anything was better than the ground.
“It will be better to use a false name,” said Avenel. “It’s safer, on the road.”
“What are you afraid of?” asked Deena. “Other murderers?”
“Mostly bandits and thieves, actually,” said Avenel.
“Couldn’t you—” began Deena.
“Kill them?” asked Avenel. “Yes, I could.”
The inn was empty but for a young man in the corner who looked them up and down as they entered. The innkeeper was quick to arrive, however, and showed them to a pair of rooms upstairs.
“Would you like to draw a bath?” asked the innkeep.
“Please,” said Avenel, “for the both of us.”
The innkeeper nodded. “Dinner will be downstairs in an hour, if you want it.”
Avenel wasn’t in her room when Deena finished her bath, so she went downstairs, but Avenel wasn’t there either. Once again, the room was empty but for the young man in the corner. Deena took a seat as far from him as possible.
Much to her unease, he got up and walked to her.
“Um, can I help you?” asked Deena.
“No,” said the man. “My father’s the magister, you know.”
“Oh. That’s nice,” said Deena, wondering why a village this size even needed a magister. She wanted to get up and leave, but the way he was standing blocked her path. “I—I should go find my friend—”
The man didn’t move. “She’s in the stables,” he said. “I saw her leave.” He took another step forward. “I like your hair.”
“Um,” said Deena.
He reached for her arm, but a dagger whizzed past his head, knicking his ear before embedding itself in the far wall.
“Step away from my ward,” said Avenel from the door, “or the next one goes through your eye.”
The man touched the cut on his ear. “My father—”
“—would undoubtedly prefer his son in tact rather than in pieces,” finished Avenel. “Leave.”
The man scowled and took off.
“Let me know if he bothers you again,” said Avenel, retrieving her dagger. “I should find the innkeeper and pay for this hole in his wall.”
“A—aren’t you having dinner?” asked Deena.
“I’ll eat in my room,” said Avenel.
It was early enough that there was still some sunlight after dinner. Deena returned to her room and tried to read, for a bit, but found that she couldn’t focus. The room felt strangely empty. She thought of the dream she had had, the fire at Parvelhaugh, and then the fire at Taunsgrove. Somehow, the fire in her dream—in Avenel’s memory—felt more real.
She went out into the hall and knocked on Avenel’s door.
“Yes?” asked Avenel, as she opened the door.
“Why did you get us separate rooms?” asked Deena. “Why not share one, like we did at the Silent Tower?”
“I thought I would give you some space.”
“Oh,” said Deena. She felt she should say something else, but wasn’t sure what to say. After a moment, Avenel stepped aside to let Deena in.
Avenel’s sword was leaning against the bed, its ruby pommel bright as blood. “He was wearing that sword on his hip,” said Deena. “The blond man—Nicholas. I saw it.”
“You saw him?” asked Avenel.
Deena nodded. “He was—he shouldn’t have done that. Hurt you like that.”
“Yes,” said Avenel.
“But he didn’t deserve to die, not like that. She didn’t either. None of them did.”
“No,” agreed Avenel.
“I thought you were like me,” said Deena, “that your family died like mine, but—” She bit her lip. “—But it really isn’t the same, is it?”
“I suppose not,” said Avenel.
“Did you mean to kill them? When you set that fire?”
“Does it matter?” asked Avenel. “Either way, they died.”
“Do you regret it, then?” asked Deena.
“Of course,” said Avenel, “but regret won’t change the past. What’s done is done.”
Deena nodded. “I’m sorry I was rude today.”
“It’s understandable.”
Deena shook her head. “No. You’ve been nothing but nice to me, ever since—since what happened at Taunsgrove. It—It shouldn’t matter to me what you did in the past. People change, and right now you’re—you’re all I’ve got.”
Avenel looked at her for a moment. “If you’d like to stay, I could ask the innkeeper to add a cot.”
Deena nodded. “Yes, please. I—I don’t want to be alone.”
That night, Deena’s sleep was blessedly devoid of strange dreams.
It was only half a day more to Emdenshire, so they took their time in the morning. Breakfast was flatbread, eggs, and juicy strips of bacon. The magister’s son didn’t appear again.
The sun was already high in the sky when they retrieved their horses and set off. The houses dotting the farmland increased in frequency as they rode. They encountered other travelers, too, people heading to and from the city: lone riders and mule carts and travelers walking on foot.
“Mr Allard was going to Emdenshire, wasn’t he?” asked Deena. “To fix his cart.”
Avenel nodded. “It was the nearest city, but he’ll have moved on to Glennark or Eswick, by now.”
“I think he’s in Rook’s Town a lot,” said Deena. “He mentions it a lot, anyway.”
“He lives there,” said Avenel. “It’s where his wife and children are.”
For some reason, Deena had never considered what Allard’s life was like when he wasn’t on the road. It made sense, of course, that he would have a family, but she had never given it any thought. “Do you have a home?” asked Deena. “Somewhere you go when you aren’t travelling?”
Avenel shook her head. “Just the Tower,” she said.
It was afternoon when they reached the city proper. Deena had always imagined cities to be just like Taunsgrove, only larger. She was wrong. Emdenshire was bigger than Taunsgrove, yes, but it was also much louder, filthier, and more crowded. Pedestrians jostled each other in the streets, and at every corner was some vendor hawking their wares. Beggars held out chipped bowls to ask for spare coppers, only to be ignored or pushed aside. Barefoot urchins ran, laughing and shouting, bumping into aproned matrons who swore after them. Shops lined the streets on either side, offering all manner of goods, and above them towered multiple stories of living quarters. Laundry hung from lines strung between the upper story windows, waving like mismatched pennants in the wind. It was a wonder they weren’t dirty again by the time they dried when the air was so thick with the smell of dead rats, rotten vegetables, and human waste.
“How can anyone live like this?” asked Deena, wrinkling her nose.
“One gets used to it,” said Avenel.
“I don’t think I could ever get used to this,” said Deena.
“You would be surprised what a person can get used to.”
The crowd was forced to step aside to allow their horses through, which they did begrudgingly and with many loud and rude protestations. Deena shrank a little from all the dirty looks, but Avenel seemed unfazed, as did the horses.
The area where they stopped was a little nicer, with cobbled streets instead of dirt and larger, more inviting shopfronts. The smell, however, remained the same, as did the crowds. The inn Avenel chose was tucked away down a side street, with a stable out front that looked as though it had been squashed into the neighboring building. A sign outside read “The Manticore.” It was with some reluctance that the stableboy tore himself away from a game of ball with his friends, at least until Avenel tossed a few coins his way.
The inside of the inn was larger than the narrow front would suggest, with the room being longer than it was wide. A dozen patrons sat eating or drinking, most of them alone or in pairs. There was a bearded man behind the bar, polishing the counter, and he looked up as they entered.
“What can I get you?” he asked.
“A double room, please,” said Avenel. “Just for tonight.”
The man retrieved a thick ledger from beneath the counter. “Your names?” he asked.
“Azalea,” said Avenel. “Azalea Mills.”
The man nodded as he wrote. “And you?” he asked Deena.
“Um, Hyacinth,” said Deena, then immediately mentally smacked herself.
The man didn’t react as he wrote it down. “Second floor, third room on the left,” he said as he handed them the key.
“I can’t believe I said ‘Hyacinth’,” said Deena as they went up the stairs. “Who would name their child ‘Hyacinth’?”
“It could be worse,” said Avenel. “You could have said ‘Butterwort’.”
Deena made a face.
The room was neither large nor elaborate, but it was clean, with two beds, two chairs, and a wooden screen. In between was a large window that overlooked a back alley. Deena threw it open to let in the afternoon breeze, then realized too late that she had also let in the stench. She slammed it shut again.
Avenel took off her boots to sit cross-legged on the bed. “We have a few hours until suppertime,” she said. “Is there anything you would like to do?”
“I don’t know what there is to do,” said Deena.
“It’s been a while since I was last here,” said Avenel. “We could go to the market; I need to pick up some supplies. There are also some shops that sell things you might like, and sometimes there are performers by the square. Jugglers, puppets, that sort of thing.”
Deena thought for a moment. “Performers might be fun,” she said. Travelling performers came to Taunsgrove sometimes, but not very often. “Is it far?”
“Not very,” said Avenel, “and we can visit some shops on the way.”
Emdenshire was not a large city, according to Avenel, but it still boasted a variety of shops and craftspeople. Every object in existence seemed to have its own specialty shop. There were glassblowers and milliners and jewelers and bookbinders, alongside the more commonplace businesses like butchers and carpenters. There was even a shop dedicated entirely to different pens and inks, where Avenel spent what felt like an eternity picking out a gift for her wardsister.
“There’s a shop just for sweets?” asked Deena, staring in awe through the shop window. “Who eats this many sweets?”
“No one, I hope,” said Avenel. “Would you like some?”
“I wouldn’t know what to get,” said Deena. The delicious aroma of sugar and fruit wafted tantalizingly through the open door, and inside, the shop was filled with shelves and shelves of sweets. There were licorice and caramelized nuts like Mrs Sandler used to make, but most were things that Deena had never seen before.
“First time in the city?” asked the confectioner when they entered. “If you don’t know what you like, you could try a piece.”
Deena’s eyes widened. “I—I don’t even know what to try.”
The confectioner chuckled. “Why not a piece of everything, then? Here, start with this.”
In the end, they bought candied lemons, dried dates, and two different kinds of toffee, all wrapped in neat paper packages. There were also strawberries on a stick dipped in some sort of sugary syrup, which they ate as they watched a troupe of performers in the square. There was a sword swallower, a contortionist, and a blindfolded knife thrower who cleanly sliced through the crabapple placed atop his assistant’s head.
“How did he do that?” asked Deena, jaw dropped. “He couldn’t even see where she was!”
“He can,” said Avenel. “That blindfold isn’t nearly thick enough.”
The leader of the troupe stepped before the crowd. “Duncan the Unerring, ladies and gentlemen!” he called, as a stagehand set up a wooden target behind him. “Does anyone wish to challenge him?”
A hand shot up from the crowd, holding a silver coin. “I do!”
“Then step right up,” said the troupe leader, taking the coin from the young man’s hand.
Duncan went first. With an almost careless flick of his wrist, he sent his dagger flying straight into the center of the target. The young man’s dagger missed the target altogether, landing in the haystack behind it.
“Bad luck, I’m afraid,” said the troupe leader, pocketing the young man’s coin. “Looks like you lost this wager.”
The crowd laughed. The young man, looking dejected, slinked into the back.
“It’s rigged,” said Avenel quietly to Deena. “The knife they gave him isn’t balanced; it’s designed to curve in the air.”
“But that isn’t fair,” said Deena. “They tricked him!”
“I know,” said Avenel. She took a gold coin from her purse and held it up. “A gold piece,” she called, “but I get three tries.”
The troupe leader hesitated, but the allure of the gold was too much. “Step right up,” he said, taking the gold from her hand and biting it to ensure it was real.
Avenel took the dagger from the assistant’s hand. She tossed it between her hands, as though feeling for the weight and balance, then stepped forward to the line on the ground. “After you, Mr Duncan,” she said.
Duncan nodded. Once again, his knife hit the center of the target.
“Your turn, ma’am,” called the troupe leader. He was playing with the gold coin, flipping it between his fingers. “As promised, you get three tries.”
Avenel threw the dagger. As with the young man from before, it went wide. The crowd laughed, but Avenel only smiled. “Good thing I have two more tries,” she said.
The assistant brough the dagger back to her, and as soon as she was clear, Avenel threw it. This time, it hit the target in the dead center, so close to Duncan’s that the two formed a single hole.
“W-well,” said the troupe leader as the crowd all cheered. “Looks like you won.”
“I still have another try, don’t I?” asked Avenel.
“Yes?” said troupe leader uncertainly.
“Good,” said Avenel and held out her hand for the knife.
The troupe leader watched her uncertainly, still flipping that gold coin between his fingers. Once more, Avenel threw the knife, but this time it hit the coin in the troupe leader’s hand, sending it flying.
The troupe leader scrambled to run after it. The crowd laughed. Even some of the stagehands chuckled.
“Looks like I missed,” said Avenel. “Keep the coin.”
The crowd was quick to disperse as the assistants and stagehands began to walk around with their bowls of clinking coin. Avenel was talking to Duncan, who had lifted up his blindfold. Deena ran forward to join her, but a man with long red hair bumped into her shoulder, causing her to drop her packages on the ground. “Ah, I’m terribly sorry,” said the man. “Let me help you with that.”
“It’s alright,” said Deena, but the man had already picked up the packages and placed them in her arms.
“Your friend is quite the knife thrower,” said the man.
“Yeah, it’s her specialty,” said Deena, examining the packages. They appeared unharmed from the fall. “Thanks.”
“No, it was my fault,” said the man and hurried off after his companions.
Avenel was just finishing her conversation with Duncan, demonstrating some sort of wrist flick. “Try it a few times,” she was saying. “You’ll get more accuracy at a longer range.” On Deena’s approach, she turned. “Are you hungry?” she asked. “It’s nearly suppertime.”
Deena nodded. “I’m famished.”
“Let’s head back, then,” said Avenel.
The Manticore was apparently a popular spot for dinner, because all the tables were occupied when Deena and Avenel returned. Fortunately, a couple in the corner had just finished their meal, and Deena and Avenel sat down as a serving girl cleared the plates. Deena’s stomach growled, and she contemplated the package of toffee for a moment before deciding to wait until after dinner. Thankfully, their order came quick.
“I’m glad the sweets didn’t spoil your appetite,” said Avenel, as Deena devoured her bowl of stew.
“I guess I didn’t eat much yesterday,” said Deena. She paused. “I’m—I’m sorry again for being rude.”
“It’s alright,” said Avenel. “When we arrive at Olyssa’s, I’d understand if you preferred that I leave.”
Deena shook her head. “I—I feel better when you’re around,” she said. “I meant what I said: you’re all I have.”
Avenel nodded.
Half an hour later, Deena had polished off a plate of peas, two buttered rolls, and half a large sausage in addition to her stew. The room had emptied considerably. Apart from the innkeeper, there was a man dining alone, a couple enjoying a game of chess with their dessert, and a trio of people in travelling cloaks drinking at a table by the door. Deena unwrapped her toffee and broke off a piece. Across the room, one of the chessplayers gave a loud cheer as he gleefully knocked over his opponent’s king.
“He could have won ten turns earlier, if he hadn’t been so careless with his rook,” said Avenel, watching them.
“Do you play?” asked Deena.
“I did,” said Avenel. “Ephraim used it as a tool for teaching strategy.”
“I never learned,” said Deena. “Mr Allard offered to teach us, once, but my friends weren’t very interested.”
“Perhaps Olyssa could teach you. She was quite a good player, even as a child.”
Deena nodded absently. There was something about the trio in the travelling cloaks. “Avenel,” she said, “I think saw those people at the square, after the show.”
Avenel followed her gaze. “Are you sure?”
“Yes, or at least that tall man with the orange hair. He bumped into me.”
Avenel frowned. “I’m sure it’s a coincidence,” she said. “We aren’t far from the square. It wouldn’t be odd for them to come here for dinner afterwards.”
“You’re probably right,” said Deena.
“Are you still hungry?” asked Avenel. “We could order more food, if you like.”
“No, I’m full,” said Deena. “But not too full for toffee,” she added, breaking off another piece. “Would you like some?”
Avenel shook her head. “Take our packages up to our room. I’ll head up after I pay.”
Deena nodded.
Avenel watched her go. The trio in the travelling cloaks made no move to follow Deena up the stairs, or even seem to notice Deena’s leaving. They did not have the look of soldiers or spies about them, but they were armed. There was a broadsword in its sheath leaning against their table, alongside a bow, and there was a crossbow sitting on an empty chair beside them.
Avenel made a show of getting up, stretching, and walking to the counter. One of the trio, a man with broad shoulders and dark hair twisted into ropes, glanced her way.
“You could have paid tomorrow when you pay for your room,” said the innkeeper.
“I know,” said Avenel. She counted out her coins. “Those three in the corner, are they staying here?”
The innkeeper looked over, less surreptitiously than Avenel would have liked. “No,” he said. “They’re just here for food and drink.”
Avenel nodded and handed over the money. Twice more now, she had caught one or another of the trio looking her way. “Thank you,” she said to the innkeeper, and with a feigned casualness, strode out of the inn’s front door.
She shouldn’t have done that at the square, with the knife thrower. It drew too much attention. It was possible that these three were only interested in her wealth, but… Her hand went to Ephraim’s dagger at her belt, the comforting cold of the hilt. It was little secret that Lord Avenel was fond of throwing knives; could they have figured out who she was from that alone?
Outside, it was already dark, and an overcast sky obscured the moon. She climbed up onto the roof of the stables, laying belly-down so she could not be seen from below. Within moments, the door of the inn opened again, and the trio stepped out.
“Did you see where she went?” asked one of them, the tall one with the broad shoulders and dark skin.
“No,” said one of the others, a tall thin man with long red hair.
“Are you sure it was her?” asked the third, a bald woman with a small, slim stature. She had grabbed the crossbow on her way out, but the other two had left their weapons behind.
“I’m positive,” replied the man with the broad shoulders.
“She’ll be back,” said the red-haired man. “The girl went upstairs; they must be staying here.”
The bald woman shook her head. “This is a bad idea, Garth. She’s too dangerous.”
“She won’t kill me, Frost,” said the broad-shouldered man. “I’m too valuable to kill.”
“She doesn’t have to kill you,” replied the woman. “Maybe we could get the girl, while she’s gone.”
“I’m not sure I condone kidnapping children, Sister,” said the redhead.
“I’m not saying to hurt her,” said the woman. “I’m just saying we could use her as leverage.”
Avenel reached for one of her daggers. It would be easy to take out the one with the crossbow before she had time to react, and the other two would never reach their weapons in time. But then she would have three bodies on her hands, three bodies to explain, which meant revealing her identity and her presence to the city’s guards. Besides, these three didn’t seem like common bandits; their clothes were plain enough, but the fine construction and tailored fit gave them away. Not brigands, then, and not soldiers or spies, so what did they want from her?
The easiest thing to do would be to ask. She could kill them later if she had to.
She stood up and stepped forward, letting the light from the inn’s windows illuminate her. “Looking for me?” she asked.
The trio looked up. The dark-skinned man was the first to recover from his surprise. “Lord Avenel of Elyria,” he said with a smile. He bowed, deep enough that it was almost mocking. “A pleasure to see you again.”
“Have we met?” asked Avenel.
“You killed my favorite uncle.”
Avenel paused. She had killed many people in her past, but… “You’re the Queen’s Bastard,” she said.
“I prefer Prince Garthniiel,” said the man.
“Are you looking for revenge?” asked Avenel.
“Hardly,” said Garthniiel. “I’m not stupid, contrary to popular belief. If I tried to kill you, I’m sure you would kill me first, and I would really prefer to not die.”
“Then why are you here?”
“Would you believe me if I said we were sightseeing?” asked Garthniiel. “See, the pubs and taverns in Ajjraea are all alike, and it was beginning to grow stale. We simply wanted to see what Elyria has to offer.”
Avenel raised an eyebrow. “Are you sure you aren’t stupid?”
“Nobody’s perfect,” said Garthniiel with a shrug. “Unfortunately the false identity we used to enter your country has been compromised by a, ah, incident at Eswick. We feel that we’ve overstayed our welcome, but I doubt your border guards will allow us to leave without the proper papers, and on our own side, we’d rather no one knew of our little excursion.”
“So you were hoping I could provide you with the papers,” said Avenel. She considered a moment. He did not appear to be lying, and his story certainly aligned with his reputation. The common consensus was that the prince was harmless, with little power at court and little interest in it, but he was still a prince. “I no longer have the authority to grant papers of passage,” said Avenel, “but for the right price, and if you’re willing to wait a little, I could make a forgery.”
“I suppose we don’t have a choice. How long will it take?”
“A few days. My first priority is to continue on to my wardsister’s. Once there, I’ll make your papers.”
“And we’re supposed to just wait here?” asked the bald woman. “How do we even know you’ll come back?”
“Now Frost,” said the prince. “Beggars can’t be choosers, and I’m sure Lord Avenel is a woman of her word.”
“She murdered your uncle Jaliin!”
“Frost, please.”
Avenel studied them for a moment. “You could travel with me, if you like,” she said. “It would save me the trouble of returning. Just be aware that if you harm so much as a hair on my ward or wardsister—”
“—then I’m sure you’ll have all manner painful deaths prepared,” finished Garthniiel. “Again, I would really prefer not to die. You and yours are safe, you have my word.”
Avenel nodded. “We leave in the morning,” she said. “You understand of course, that this won’t be free.”
“Of course,” said Garthniiel. “So how much will you be wanting? I have some gold with me, but if it isn’t enough—”
“Do I look like the type the broker in gold?” asked Avenel.
“I suppose not,” said Garthniiel uncertainly. “So what, ah, what will you be wanting as payment?”
“Information,” said Avenel. “Tell me, have you heard of a town called Taunsgrove?”

2020.10.01 04:36 SkittishReflections Would You Rather

“Would you rather grow hair on your teeth, or teeth on your hair?” my sister asked, not letting our two younger siblings’ snickering affect her serious expression as she tapped me on the shoulder with the asking stick.
“Before I make my choice, there are a few questions I must ask,” I replied with a pretentious eyebrow lift as I swept the asking stick away. “If I choose the first, would I be able to shave the hair off my teeth? And, if yes, would it grow back?”
Our siblings began making retching noises, but my sister maintained her poise as she replied, “The answer is yes and yes.”
“And if I choose the second, would I be able to shave the hair off my head? And, if yes, would the new hair grow back in with teeth?”
“Once again, the answer is yes and yes,” my sister replied as our siblings squealed in disgust and scratched their scalps.
“And what would I use to brush?” I asked. “A hairbrush or a toothbrush?”
Our siblings found this question hilarious as they laughed and clapped. They always enjoyed it when we took things too seriously and dramatized our thought process, and they seemed to be particularly entertained as my sister and I introduced them to this game.
My sister remained unflappable as she replied, “If you choose teeth on your hair, you would use a wide-toothed comb. If you choose hair on your teeth, then a toothbrush if you decide to shave, or both a toothbrush and an eyebrow comb if you choose not to shave.”
“Hmm…” I pondered for a few seconds, stroking my chin with theatrical flourish. “Then, my dear big sister, I would rather grow hair on my teeth, because I could just shave it each morning and be normal for the rest of the day.”
Our siblings shuddered and giggled as they stuck their tongues out, spitting imaginary hair out of their mouths.
“You’re weak,” my sister scoffed with a superior head tilt. “I would rather grow teeth on my hair. And…” She flipped her long curls off her shoulders. “…I’d wear them proudly.”
“What on Earth are you two talking about?”
That was our mother, standing outside my bedroom door with a look of utter revulsion on her face.
“We’re playing ‘would you rather’,” my sister replied.
“Teeth on hair and hair on teeth?” my mother asked, staring at us. “That’s not how I remember playing it! Where does your generation come up with horrifying things like that?”
Our younger siblings doubled over in laughter. It was always amusing seeing parents exasperated, disgusted, or out of their element.
“Actually, that question was pretty tame,” my sister said with a shrug.
“And is that nana’s cane?” our mother asked, crossing her arms in disapproval. “You know better than to remove it from its case.”
“No, it’s the asking stick,” my sister replied, balancing it across her shoulders. “And it’s not like anyone’s using it. It just sits there collecting dust. I’m doing it a favor today, I’m giving it purpose.”
“Its purpose is being the only keepsake your father has of his mother’s. He’ll kill you if he finds out you’re playing around with it.”
Our father peeked in the room, standing behind our mother and wrapping his arms around her waist. “Who am I going to kill?” he asked, nuzzling his face against hers. “Because it’ll have to be quick, we’re going to be late for the movie.”
My sister waved her hand, shooing them away. “Then go! Don’t worry, we’ve got it handled.”
“Curb your creativity,” our mother said. “I don’t want you two giving Jude and Lara nightmares. And tomorrow is the first day of school, so bedtime is—”
“This isn’t the first time we’ve babysat, mom,” my sister said, rolling her eyes. “Just go enjoy date night.”
“Come on, honey, Mona and Nadia know what they’re doing,” our father said, pulling our mother away. “Just put the cane back in its case,” he called over his shoulder. “My mother didn’t like us playing with her things when she was alive, let’s not disrespect her now that she’s passed, you hear?”
“Yes, dad,” the four of us called out.
After we heard the front door close and lock, Jude turned to Mona and me. “I want to ask a would-you-rather!”
Mona shrugged and handed him the asking stick. “Go ahead, ask Lara.”
He grinned and turned to his little sister, poking her in the stomach with the asking stick. “Would you rather turn into a cockroach or a rat?”
Lara grimaced and shoved the asking stick away. “None of them.”
“You have to pick one!” Jude said, pouting. “That’s the game!”
“No, I don’t!” Lara turned to Mona and me. “Do I?”
“Yes, you do,” Mona replied in an authoritative tone. “Those are the rules. If you don’t choose one, then you forfeit your right to play.”
Lara’s lip trembled, and I nudged Mona and whispered, “Mona, chill.”
“Fine,” Mona sighed. “Lara, how’s this? You can ask Jude to answer first.”
Jude didn’t even wait. “I would rather turn into a cockroach. That’s because they can survive anything. I learned that in school. They’re like super bugs.”
Lara looked at him, quizzical. “Super bugs?”
He nodded, excited to share his trivia. “They can eat anything, so they’ll never starve. They can hold their breath for over thirty minutes, so they’ll never drown. They are super fast, so they’ll never be caught. They can survive nukes so they’ll never die. They can even live if they lose their heads! And I’m going to choose to be the one with wings so I can fly!”
Lara stared at him in awe. “I want to be a super bug. I choose to rather a cockroach with wings too.”
“Hey, you can’t copy me,” Jude said, frowning as he turned to Mona and me. “Can she?”
“Yes, she can,” Mona replied. “It’s called ‘would you rather’, not ‘first come, first serve’.”
Jude wrinkled his nose in confusion. “Huh?”
“My turn!” Lara said, clapping her hands. “Nadia, would you rather…eat…um…your glasses or…um…” she looked around my bedroom. “Or your curtains?”
Jude scoffed. “That’s a stupid question.”
“No, it’s not,” Lara said, crossing her arms. “You’re stupid.”
“If I may,” I said, drawing her attention, “will I just have to eat it one time, or would it be the oooonly thing I eat forever and ever and ever?”
She giggled. “Only one time.”
“Then I would rather eat my glasses, because they’re smaller and I’d be done with them faster.”
“Me too,” she said, beaming.
“You don’t even wear glasses,” Jude said. “Your question isn’t fair.”
“I have sunglasses,” Lara countered, scowling at him. “And I’m going to eat them!”
“But make-believe eat them,” I said, now worried she may be too young for this game.
She rolled her eyes. “I know, silly.”
“Yea, she knows, silly,” Mona teased, and I stuck my tongue out at her.
“Mona, ask me one!” Jude said with an eager smile as he shoved the asking stick in her hands. “Make it really weird too! Like the first one!”
“Fine, hmm…” She waved the asking stick in his direction. “Would you rather fall—”
Mona’s cellphone rang, interrupting her, and she held up a finger as she answered. She then snorted an obnoxious laugh and threw the asking stick on my lap before she hopped off my bed, and Jude frowned in disappointment as he watched her leave the room.
“I can ask you one,” I offered.
“No, this is a stupid game,” he muttered as he slid off my bed.
He was at that age where he took everything personally, so I just sighed and let him go. Lara asked me if I wanted to watch videos with her, so I tossed the asking stick on my desk and spent the evening lounging on my bed with her as we laughed at animals being ridiculous.
When eight o’clock rolled around, Mona and I made sure Jude and Lara had washed up, brushed, and changed into their pajamas before we tucked them in and read them a bedtime story. I then went to my room and browsed for a while, trying to ignore the endless chattering coming from Mona’s room before I turned in for the night.

The next morning, I woke up before my alarm, coughing and sputtering. Groggy, I sat up in bed, my tongue flapping as I tried to spit out whatever was tangled in my mouth. Parts of it hung from my lips and stuck to my chin, and I reached up in bewilderment.
It felt like hair.
I grabbed my glasses and ran to the mirror, and my jaw fell open in disbelief at the sopping locks of hair sprouting from my teeth. I pulled my cheeks to the side and tilted my head in all directions. Every single tooth from my incisors to my molars was covered in silky, auburn strands.
I hooked my fingers around the locks to guide them out of my mouth, and they hung down like a glistening, disconcerting beard.
“Holy shit!”
I jumped at Mona’s exclamation. I hated it when she entered my room without permission, but I was too distracted by her hair to yell at her. Each and every strand of her curls was now weighed down with pearly grains that coated them top to bottom.
Awestruck, I reached for her hair and ran my hands through it, the minuscule teeth tinkling as they rubbed against one another. In return, she shoved her fingers in my mouth and pulled at my cheeks, staring, mesmerized.
“Wow, did they grow this long overnight?” She twirled one of the dripping locks around her finger and tugged, making me wince. “Ooh, does that hurt?” she asked.
“I dunno, dush thish hurt?” I asked sarcastically, pulling her hair.
She yelped and jerked back, and I was left with a few strands in my clenched fist. I brought them closer to my eyes, inspecting them, and was surprised to see incisors, canines, premolars, and molars represented, albeit not in any particular pattern. I ran the edge of my thumbnail over their tiny forms, trying to pop one off, but they were stuck tight to the hair strand.
“Beautiful, aren’t they?” Mona asked, grinning.
“Aren’t you wondering how thish haffened?” I asked, spraying her with spittle as tooth-hair flopped between my lips. “Thish offeeushly hash shomthing to do with the game yeshterday!”
“Obviously.” She cocked an eager eyebrow. “Does this mean you’re going to eat your glasses?”
I looked at myself in the mirror. My glasses remained as unappetizing as they were yesterday.
“No. Mayme it only worksh on the firsht question we anshered?”
“I don’t think so, it’s not the first time you and me have played. We have to figure out exactly what we did because I want endless wishes! Imagine all the stuff we could ask for! We could be rich! We could have superpowers! We could fly or—”
“Mona, what amout Jude and Lara?” I interrupted, my blood running cold.
Her expression shifted to worry. “I don’t know, mom should be waking them up for school right about now.”
We ran out of my room, then froze at the sight of our mother leaning against her bedroom’s doorframe.
“Damn flying cockroaches,” she muttered in disgust as she put her slipper back on.

2020.10.01 01:59 Xisas 30 [M4F] Midwest - Looking for someone as nerdy as I am

I'd prefer that you were close-ish to me since traveling is a pain right now but I'm open to longer distances.
I feel like online dating is the definition of insanity but here I am yet again trying to find someone or something. If the following sounds like a perfect day then we may be a perfect match!:
We have the day to ourselves. There is a light thunderstorm outside. We crack the windows so we can hear the rain and thunder along with the fresh scent of rain flowing into our abode. We decide to cuddle up and the couch and cover ourselves with a fluffy blanket. In front of us is a TV which sits upon an entertainment center containing a (most likely) fake fireplace, but that doesn't bother us. Our dog decides to join us to keep us company as we snuggle and play video games or even watch a new movie or show, or perhaps we revisit one of our favorites. Both of us feeling as happy as we can be look at each other and say "there is no place I'd rather be than here with you" as we go in for a kiss our dog excitedly decides to jump on us and slobber us with kisses. We both laugh and start playing with our favorite doggo. Content and exhausted we curl up together and take an afternoon nap and dream of each others smiling faces.
Ahhh one can dream right? Here is a bit about me:
I'm a fairly nerdy guy... ok very nerdy guy! I love video games, anime, movies and music. Some games I'm currently playing are League of legends (carry me?), WoW, Among us, Avengers, Fall guys. For anime I can get into just about anything but tend to go to shonen such as Naruto, DBZ, bleach and MHA. Movie wise I'm a HUGE star wars fan (mando season 2 plz), marvel, harry potter (I'm gryffindor hbu?) and lord of the rings. Music is just all over the place. Lets see... personality wise I'm very sarcastic! I consider myself very kind, trusting, loyal, honest and a good listener. I'm also 5'10''. I'm a very shy and quite who is socially awkward BUT I do come out of my shell once I'm comfortable so give me time! Love dogs and the occasional cat. Traveling is fun and I would love to do more of it someday (damn covid).
Phew ok I'll end this with pictures of myself (ignore the beard, I usually clean shave now). If you decide to contact me I'd appreciate a picture back! I prefer to know who I'm talking to!

2020.09.30 22:38 MrReaper_C This will be long, but I would like to know what it means

First off, I want to say that usually my dreams are in 3rd person, and are shot like a movie. I don't know how common/uncommon this is for other people, but its unusual for me to be in my own body when I dream. And this dream was entirely in first person, and was the scariest dream I've ever had. Not like a horror movie, but still scary.

Dream Part 1

Anyways, the dream starts off when I go to bed. I can't remember what I was thinking about before I fell asleep, but I was out pretty quickly. I now appear to be standing in some hallway, and I already know that this is a dream. The hallway is probably about 8ft wide, and has no walls. Where the walls should be is black (similar to this) and it looks like it goes on forever. In front of me, there are 3 doorways, but they don't have doors. So, I walked through a doorway. I can't remember which one I picked, but when I got through the doorway I saw the exact same thing. So, I repeated these events, choosing a random doorway and walking through it, for a while before I started to panic. It was never ending. I quickly lost track of time and I felt like I was going crazy. I think I was there for years. I eventually had a mental break down, and curled up in a ball on the floor and started crying.

Dream Part 2

I don't know if I fell asleep in this ball or if I just had my eyes closed, but the next time I opened them, I was sitting at a table (this kind of table) with my heads in my arms like I'd just been asleep. I looked up and around and realized that I was in my old middle school gymnasium, and I looked the same as I did when I was in middle school. I didn't attend a school that had those tables until high school, so I still knew I was dreaming. I quickly remembered the dream I'd just had, and got a sense of relief that it was finally over. "This was now just a regular dream" I though, although the fact that I was still in first person worried me some. It looked like I was at the after school program because most kids had their bags, and there were some adults in there supervising us. On my left, some kids in my grade were trying to throw the basketball across the gym and into the net. Some misses later, they ask if I want to try as I had been watching them for a while. I said sure, and threw it across the gym. Obviously, I missed, and then I sat down again at the table and thought "huh this was a weird dream". For a while nothing happened. The kids next to me kept missing, and then one of them asks if I want to try as I had been watching them for a while. I was now very worried. I hesitantly said sure, missed, and sat back down. I realized that I hadn't left the previous dream, and the only thing that changed was the scene. Again, they asked If I wanted a shot, but this time I declined because I wanted to see what would happen. They said "alright" and continued missing the net. They stopped asking me if I wanted shots after that, so I had some time to think. "what is going on", "Why is this happening to me", and "How do I get out of this place" was pretty much all that I was thinking about though. The thought crossed my mind that maybe if I could make the shot, I could leave, or wake up, so I asked the guys who were playing and they obliged. We still all took turns shooting so I knew it would take a while, but eventually I got it, and after some brief fist bumps from the other guys I looked around and then... nothing changed. It still kept happening. It was still looping and I was still so completely confused. After what felt like even more years I had another mental brake down. I put my head back in my arms on the table, and closed my eyes. I was done with this, and I just wanted to wake up from this nightmare.

Dream Part 3

I woke up in the bed I had when I was a child, and after some brief looking around I saw that I was in the bedroom of my childhood home, and I looked like my childhood self. I hadn't been awake for long when I realized that I was still in first person, and the same thing was probably going to happen again. I decided not to get up, but to instead sit there and cry. Soon after my sister came into my room and asked if I was okay. I've never responded to that question with anything but yes in my entire life, but after spending that long reliving the same events on loop and never being able to leave, I wanted someone to talk to. I explained to her everything that I'd just explained to you all, and whether she believed me or not, she was worried about me. She offers to go get me a glass of water because I "really look like I needed one" and I said yes. She leaves the room, and I felt some sense of relief that I finally had someone to talk to about this. She opens my door again and asks me if I'm okay. I think my heart actually stopped beating when I heard those words again. She asked again, and I just said "yeah, I'm fine. Don't worry." She left and I though I was going to die from stress. I sat there, thinking of all the fond memories I had in this house. In that moment I got up, ran outside to the street, and just started running. My sister stood in the doorway and said "What are you doing?" and I didn't even bother responding.

Dream Part 4

I didn't make it far down the street of my old neighborhood before everything went black. It felt like my eyes were closed, but I wasn't the one who was doing it. When I opened them again, I was in my bed, in my current body, in my current house. I was shocked. "Is it finally over? Did I finally get out?" I thought. I leapt out of bed and down the stairs to find my sister in the living room. I went up to her and asked what the date was, exactly. She says September 29th. I ask for the year, and she gives me a confused look and says "Uh, 2020? Are you okay?" I hug her as hard as possible, with tears streaming down my face, and all I could say was "Finally, I'm finally out. Thank you"... and then I wake up.

I finally know I'm awake now. For sure. That's why I'm typing this. Because after I woke up I was confused and scared, and since I know I'm awake now I would very much like to know what this means. Also, I didn't mention it in the story because I didn't really know how, but I was sure that someone or something was doing this to me. I felt like I'd spoken to whoever it was at some point in the dream, but I have no clue when. It felt like they were taunting me. Like it was just a game. And that made it significantly worse. If you read this whole thing, please tell me what you think it means. I'm still trying to process this myself, so I'm wondering what other people interpret it as.

Edit: also forget to mention that I've dreamt part one before. I've only ever dreamt it once before, and it was by itself, so I thought the 'Long Dream' tag would work better than "Recurring Dream", but if I should change it let me know.

2020.09.30 22:17 jamesmaximus1 The visitor(reupload)

The Visitor
Hey, I don’t know who is reading this, or if someone is ever going to read this but i just have to get this off my chest as i don’t know what else to do at the moment. The current date is 21.06.2019. This will have importance later.
You might be confused right now, but don't worry i am going to explain everything. My name is Jacob, I am 27 years old and live in a small city in europe. I used to stay in a major City but due to family problems had to not only quit my job, but also move to a new flat.
I got this apartment for a very cheap price of only 400€ a month which is honestly perfect considering i live alone and also work as a salesman in the local supermarket.
But I don't want to bore you with the story of my life so let's get to the part that actually matters… a far more disturbing one.
It all started when, while visiting a flea market, I found a box foul of old cables, lamps and books 10€, the man selling the box told me it used to belong to his now 20 year old daughter, who recently moved away with her boyfriend and left some of her stuff back, to throw away. But he did not want to, so he threw everything in a box and is now trying to sell it.
At the spur of the moment, I decided to buy it. Call it instinct or gut feeling, but I just knew I had to have this box. So I bought it, and that should have been the end of it, just some old junk that I could sell again to make a bit of profit, but… it was not.
While looking through the different items I found a rather strange looking book, with the first title, which used to read “Diary”, being crossed out and instead in bold letters, there stood the words “The Visitor”.
I was confused, this was his own daughter's diary, why would he sell that to just a random person? He seemed rather nice and polite so I had half a mind to bring it back to him, but I stopped… I mean it would not hurt to have a peek now would it?
So I decided I would bring it back later and just have a little read this evening. I really really should not have.
What follows had to have been some kind of prank or at least I hope so. There were around 200 sites filled with the day to day activity of her, over the span of 8 years. Starting from 10.05.2011 to the 18.06.2019. While most were normal some where rather creepy and downright disturbing.
Let me just show you
(This is her writing, I just typed it off from the diary, words that are in brackets are my own comments)
Day 01 10.05.11
I played with my friends outside today! We had so much fun and I love Alina so much. But the boys were there and they were kinda yucky but they left shortly after so everything is ok! My mum told me to not go with strange men and Alinas mom told her also but there were not any so that's good. I have school tomorrow, which is so much fun because all my friends are there.
Day 32 18.07.11
I dont like Becky, she was really mean to me and said I was ugly and stupid, but dad always sasid I am his little princess so that is not true. At least Alina defended me, I like Alina we are best friends. Today we played outside again, but the teachers came to us and told us we had to leave because there were weird men around.
Day 33 27.07.11
Becky is gone. My parents told me that she was “kidnabed?” i don't know what that means but they told me to not talk to strange men that I see outside. Geeeez I am not a kid anymore I know that. Anyways at least Becky is gone, I never liked her anyways.
Day 61 18.07.12 (a larger gap between days is forming)
Alina is not talking to me. I accidently called her a dumb cow but I really did not mean to I swear. I also told her that but she just yelled at me and told me I was dumb and stupid. I am not stupid, Alina is stupid, I wish she was gone.
Day 63 29.07.12 (now its getting creepy)
Alina… is gone. I don't want her to be gone. I am sorry!! please bring her back.Please Please! Please! Please! Please! Please! Please! Please! Please! Please! Please! Please! Please! Please! Please! Please! Please! (This is getting weird)
Day 64 30.07.12
Alina is not coming back
Day 65 04.05.14 ( A large skip I know)
Today I played with my friends outside, and there was this cute boy, Derek and omg he is so cute, I just want to have him for myself. But he spends too much time with Alice, Alice should go away.
Day 67 11.05.14
Today there was this weird man in front of our school. He asked if we had seen Alice and that he was here to bring her home. But when he saw the Teachers he just ran away. The teachers told us then that we should not talk to strangers, but I mean he was not a Stranger he was Alice… What did he say? I can't remember.
Day 68 12.05.14
Alice wont be coming to school again, the teachers did not tell us anything but i overheard them talking about some sort of torture and a murder. At least now I have Derek all to myself.
Day 91 17.06.16
I asked Derek to go with me to the ball, but he said no. I hate Derek, I Hate him! I Hate him! I Hate him! I Hate him! I Hate him! I Hate him! I Hate him! I Hate him!. He should never come back.
Day 92 18.06.16 I did not mean that, why did you take him away!!!! give him back! give him back! give him BACK!
Day 93 19.06.16
I hate you! You did not give him back! I don't need you anymore
This is where the first part stopped. The next page was blank and after that the really disturbing thing began. When I first read these entries I was confused. She never mentions the Person she is talking to and the fact that all of the people she doesn't like disappear? It's… really creepy.
I really should have thrown the book away at this point, but something kept me going, a desire to find out more, to find out what also happened.
The next entries did not have a date but... no let me just show you
“I am scared, I am so scared… I don't know what to do please help me, anyone… There is this man standing outside my window and he won't go away! He has this big creepy grin on his face and is slowly tapping on the window. My Dad is not home and my mom is away with her friends. Please anyone… Please. (It ends there… the next one is even creepier)
HE WON'T GO AWAY! I screamed at him to leave me alone to go away from my window but he just won't listen… I… I am scared. Why won't he go away? What did I do? (And the next one…)
He is in my closet.He is in my closet.He is in my closet.He is in my closet.He is in my closet.He is in my closet.He is in my closet.He is in my closet.He is in my closet.He is in my closet.He is in my closet.He is in my closet.He is in my closet.He is in my closet.He is in my closet.
At this point I was positively terrified, whatever this girl had to go through should not happen to anyone, but I still wonder, why has not she called the police, I mean I know I would. Maybe there is something more?
Well… the next entry did not make anything better
He… He is standing at the side of my bed… I… I… I want my mommy back… (there were teardrops everywhere) He won't leave, he just stares at me with this giant grin and those almost glowing eyes… I… I don't want to anymore.
And this one terrified me even more
………… He is laying beside me IN MY BED!,.... I don't know what to do, I cant call the police… HE will know… HE will find me.
At this point I was sure I had to talk to her father as soon as possible, but I kept going… I should not have
………………………………………………..he is inside my bed covers…………………………………………...help…………….help………...please……. anyone……...why..is………..no…………...one………..coming?
My heart stopped after I read this, but there were still 2 pages left to read. I swallowed hard. I opened the second to last page.
hehehe….. hehehe….. he is not scary, wHy was I worried? He does not want to harm mE. He just wants to heLp me go to sleep. Oh god and hear I thought he actually wanted to harm me. Silly me. Mr. Happy face is comPletely friendly.
I paused. I read it again and I paused again. She was definitely not ok. I will go to her father tomorrow. Lets see what he has to say about this. But i can't stop reading.
The last entry had a date. 18.06.2019. It sounded different that's all I can say just read it for yourself
I am leaving today. My new boyfriend came over and he told me he wanted me to move so he can get to me easier. He also wants me to call him Mr. HF. I think it's kind of cute. So yeah this will be the last entry. I am going to take it with me and should anyone find this please just throw it away. There are so many memories that I just want to let go off.
And that's it. After that there was nothing, so with all of my remaining energy I closed the book and grabbed a drink before sitting down to write this. I am honestly scared right now but I will update you on what happened after tomorrow.
23.06.2019
I have a Problem guys, please listen to me, shit… I just fucked up, really really fucked up. Let me explain. So I went to the house of the man expecting something…. not giant? But what do I get? A giant 3 story mansion. A Giant 3 story mansion! I first thought I had the wrong address but I decided to test my luck.
On my way to the mansion I got this weird feeling that something is wrong, so I decided to have a look around. There was a beautiful looking garden with a small bird bath and way around the house.
Before I could investigate further, the door opened and her Father came out of the house with this big smile on his face, talking to me as if we had known each other for years.
We had a bit of small talk until he asked me what I wanted from him today. So I told him that his daughter's Diary was under the things I bought from him and if his daughter was ok.
His expression seemed to harden in an instant. And with a voice much colder than before he told me that his daughter was fine and if I had read the book. I obviously told him no and that seemed to brighten up his mood considerably. His smile got even wider, if that's even possible, and he smacked me on the shoulder telling me what a fine young man I was, and that most people would have looked and kept the diary to themselves.
I sweatdropped internally but my happy facade remained outside. He asked me if I wanted a drink and come inside. In that moment… my gut screamed at me to run away. I don't know why but i am glad I did not go inside, or else I might be dead already.
So I left after politely refusing to accept a drink. For a split second that smile fell off his face and there were only hate filled eyes looking at me, but they were as fast gone as the smile so I probably imagined things.... right.
So I went home expecting my boring life to continue as it was, my mind having completely forgotten the previous encounter. That was until 5pm. where I saw the box standing around with some stuff still inside. So I Decided one last look could not hurt before throwing the stuff away. SO I grabbed the box and emptied the content on my bed, and after all of the useless junk fell out, there was a small picture of a family with the caption “My Family <3” under it and an address “ 142 willow street house b”
I paused.
I knew that street, it was on the other end of the city, the exact opposite direction of the house where she had lived the last years. Her diary also never mentioned her moving away so I was getting a really bad feeling.
On a whim I decided to go to the street to see if I could find out anything.
I took the bus to get there and once I arrived it was already 6pm and the sun began setting on the horizon slowly, dousing the apartment building in a faint orange shimmer. On the front porch of the building stood an old lady with her dog, so i decided to ask her about this family, maybe she knew something?
“Excuse me Miss, do you know this Family? I recently found their stuff on a flea market and wanted to bring some things back (obviously lying)”. When she looked at the Photo her complexion fell.
“What did you say”?
I looked at her
“excuse me”? I asked
“What did you just say young man”?
She seemed to become increasingly pale. So I told her the same stuff again.
“They are dead”.
I did not expect that answer in all honesty.
“what do you mean by that”?
She looked at me, now with a sad look in her eyes. “The entire family was brutally murdered and the apartment was robbed clean, well all of them except for the daughter, her corpse was never found.”
I paused then a small frown came across my face. “That can't be possible. I just recently met her…. fath-.” I stopped. My eyes widened, and my heart stopped.
“What did you want to say”? She asked me, but I did not stay to hear her out. I started running faster than I had ever ran in my life.
Everything just seemed to fall into place. What if the man was not her father, but the murderer and what if he was just selling the stuff for some extra cash? what if- but I never got to finish that train of thought as from the corner of my eye, I… saw his face… smiling at me.
I think I almost pissed myself.
That was 5 hours ago, I am now sitting at home writing this report, for the world to hear about what really happened to that girl. But… I have a problem. I now know about him… and he doesn't seem to like that. I can hear him you know… laughing from inside my closet. faint but it is there.
He was at my window, briefly, but then I turned away and I heard movement in my closet. Then under my bed, then behind me...
I am sorry, but now that you know, he won't leave you alone as well. heh He will come for you as well because you know my secret. And I don't like people knowing stuff they should not.
I know where to find you.

2020.09.30 22:01 snori74 Day 19 - Inodes, symlinks and stat

INTRO

Today's topic gives a peek “under the covers” at the technical detail of how files are stored.
Linux supports a large number of different “filesystems” - although on a server you’ll typically be dealing with just ext3 or ext4 and perhaps btrfs - but today we’ll not be dealing with any of these; instead with the layer of Linux that sits above all of these - the Linux Virtual Filesystem.
The VFS is a key part of Linux, and an overview of it and some of the surrounding concepts is very useful in confidently administering a system.

THE NEXT LAYER DOWN

Linux has an extra layer between the filename and the file's actual data on the disk - this is the inode. This has a numerical value which you can see most easily in two ways:
The -i switch on the ls command:
 ls -li /etc/hosts 35356766 -rw------- 1 root root 260 Nov 25 04:59 /etc/hosts 
The stat command:
 stat /etc/hosts File: `/etc/hosts' Size: 260 Blocks: 8 IO Block: 4096 regular file Device: 2ch/44d Inode: 35356766 Links: 1 Access: (0600/-rw-------) Uid: ( 0/ root) Gid: ( 0/ root) Access: 2012-11-28 13:09:10.000000000 +0400 Modify: 2012-11-25 04:59:55.000000000 +0400 Change: 2012-11-25 04:59:55.000000000 +0400 
Every file name "points" to an inode, which in turn points to the actual data on the disk. This means that several filenames could point to the same inode - and hence have exactly the same contents. In fact this is a standard technique - called a "hard link". The other important thing to note is that when we view the permissions, ownership and dates of filenames, these attributes are actually kept at the inode level, not the filename. Much of the time this distinction is just theoretical, but it can be very important.

TWO SORTS OF LINKS

Work through the steps below to get familiar with hard and soft linking:
First move to your home directory with:
cd
Then use the ln ("link") command to create a “hard link”, like this:
ln /etc/passwd link1
and now a "symbolic link" (or “symlink”), like this:
ln -s /etc/passwd link2
Now use ls -li to view the resulting files, and less or cat to view them.
Note that the permissions on a symlink generally show as allowing everthing - but what matters is the permission of the file it points to.
Both hard and symlinks are widely used in Linux, but symlinks are especially common - for example:
ls -ltr /etc/rc2.d/*
This directory holds all the scripts that start when your machine changes to “runlevel 2” (it's normal running state) - but you'll see that in fact most of them are symlinks to the real scripts in /etc/init.d
It's also very common to have something like :
 prog prog-v3 prog-v4 
where the program "prog", is a symlink - originally to v3, but now points to v4 (and could be pointed back if required)
Read up in the resources provided, and test on your server to gain a better understanding. In particular, see how permissions and file sizes work with symbolic links versus hard links or simple files

The Differences

Symbolic (soft) links:

2020.09.30 21:53 MSthree3 183 on NBME to 249 in 20 weeks (a realistic account)

My Step 1 "dedicated" was an absolute mess, partly due to Covid and partly due to a lack of discipline and structure.
People say you need to build a super detailed 6 week schedule and follow it to the T, only deviating to use the restroom, sleep and eat. Within the first day I think I woke up 2 hours late according to my schedule and decided to never look at it again. Do not confuse a good plan with a good outcome. Planning is indispensable but plans are useless as the quote goes.
My goal was a 240+. My approach initially was to watch and finish as many of the tried and true learning resources (Pathoma, Sketchy Micro, Sketchy Pharm, Pixorize) as quickly as possible and then move on to doing questions from QBanks (Uworld).
In retrospect, I completely overestimated my level of preparedness at the beginning of dedicated (started with a 183) and was way too confident regarding how quickly I could get through the resources.
What began as a 6 week dedicated in late April turned into 4 months (May - September) of pride-shattering humiliating setback after humiliating setback. I’ve never been so humbled in my life. I had to push my test back twice (I originally scheduled it for June 10th, but pushed back to July 31st then eventually to Sep 13th). I made so many bargains with myself and with God in that time and stayed awake until 3am on countless nights ruminating on what kind of specialty I would be able to go into, the impact this test would have on my future family, and so much else. I missed a lot of hangouts with friends, but paradoxically, even though I was “super busy” I would somehow find myself using YouTube or social media as escapes, sometimes binging for 3 to 4 hours on end after getting a bad NBME score. Overwhelming guilt would ensue and I’d oversleep until 11am or 12pm for days afterwards before getting back on track.
It was a dark time but thankfully I continued to exercise and eat well throughout. I also had a great group of friends who I quarantined with and they kept me sane with hikes and happy hours. Do not underestimate the emotional and mental toll you have to pay for a “good” step score, whatever that means. Don’t forget your priorities in life, especially your reasons for trying so hard in the first place.
Okay enough moralizing, let’s dive into some specifics:
Here are the resources I used, not in order of chronicity but in order of importance.
UWorld - Only got through 66% of the QBank with 72% correct. I wish I had finished all the questions but I ran out of time towards the end. I always did questions in 40Q blocks on timed random. I would take notes using the notes feature during the block and I found it incredibly helpful to write out my reasoning process. I used the highlighter often. At first I moved very slowly in reviews, because of my total lack of a scientific foundation. Sometimes I reviewed one block for 2 to 3 hours. Towards the end of my study period I would go straight to the last sentence and read what the last sentence was asking. This helped me apply a filter so to speak as I went back and read the question. As soon as I finished a block I would quickly review it right then and there, using a google spreadsheet to mark the question as correct or incorrect. I would then write out the key piece of information that I lacked which caused me to get the question wrong, for example “I got this wrong because I forgot that factor V leiden is caused by an inability to degrade factor V, leading to MORE coagulation and hypercoagulability, not LESS.”
NBMEs/UWSAs - I dreaded taking these. Especially the NBMEs. I never got above a 227 on a NBME and my performance actually decreased from July 19 to August 23 and August 29th.
April 27 - NBME 22 - 183
May 2nd - NBME 21 - 181
May 17 - UWSA1 - 217
July 19 - NBME 24 - 227
August 23 - NBME 18 - 223
August 29 - NBME 23 - 222
September 7 - UWSA2 - 247
September 12 - Free 120 - 83% or 243 according to the score predictor
September 13 - Real Step 1 - 249
Anki - I would make Anki cards based off of UW questions that I got wrong. I tried to keep up with Anki as much as possible during the 4 months I eventually spent studying, but I was inconsistent with my efforts: some days I did 9 cards and others I did 900. Between April and September I only didn’t do any Anki on 4 or 5 days. According to my stats I averaged about 240 cards a day. My deck at the end of dedicated had 9730 cards, 5840 (61%) of which were mature, 2230 (23%) of which were young+learning and 8% (800) which I never even got to (unseen).
I used Zanki for Pathoma and Adytumdweller’s Pixorize deck (massively helpful) for Pixorize. Finally, I used Pepper Pharm and Pepper Micro for Sketchy Pharm and Micro respectively. I found that there were certain pharm cards (ADRs for example) that were way too hard in the Pepper deck. Who the hell can remember all 9 of Amiodarone’s ADRs in one go?? So for those I supplemented by finding the individual Zanki Sketchy Pharm cards. It was worth it to spend time doing 9 individual cards as opposed to the 1 that I never remembered.
In retrospect, some of the Anki cards I made were way too long and DID NOT INTEGRATE and relate to other topics. I encourage you to make your Anki cards with a low cognitive burden in mind. More than 4 cloze deletions at a time will break your momentum during reviews. On a similar note, it was super helpful for me to include little snippets of information on my cards that helped me tie topics together. For example, on a card on hemochromatosis I would write “hemochromatoSIX - HFE - mutation on chromosome 6, Wilson's chromosome 13” to keep those salient mnemonics and related topics at the top of my mind. Another favorite example is "SarcOID - Schaumann & asterOID (bodies) and sterOIDs (treatment)" I would then screenshot the First Aid page on the back of the card as well to look over the whole topic and related topics if I wanted to. Anki made it so that on test day I could recall information and draw connections very quickly having seen it 4 or 5 times before. I got a 526 on my MCAT by using Firecracker, which was basically a knockoff version of Anki back in the day so I knew how important spaced repetition and recall were. I hate to admit this but in the last 2 months of studying I would do Anki on my laptop while walking on a treadmill. This kept me focused and awake. I probably looked like an absolute psychopath but this was huge for me.
Pathoma - I had done 70% of Pathoma during MS1 but finally went through all of the videos again over the course of 3 months during dedicated. Pathoma is the quickest and best way to get through Pathology at the right level.
Goljan audio lectures - Found them on spotify under “Daddy Goljan Lectures”. For God’s sake listen to Goljan. He serves you up Biochem, Pharm, Physiology and Pathology in entertaining vignettes with hilarious jokes interspersed in a question and answer format. It’s like you’re having a conversation with the old man. I mastered so many topics because of his explanations alone. For example, I would have never understood the difference between dead space and V/Q mismatch without his help, or that in septic shock venous O2 is actually increased. Every chapter is important, but I think the first 5 were absolute gold. I listened to all 15 or so of the lectures 2 or 3 times between April and September, usually on bike rides or runs or in the car. Not a lot of the information stuck at first but as I did more and more UW questions I would recognize a topic in the podcast and go “oh!!!! That’s why that is the right answer!” I would run or bike almost every evening during dedicated and would listen to goljan then.
Pixorize - I got through ~70% of the Biochem videos and ~30% of Immuno. In biochem, I did all of the Vitamins, Biochem pathways, Lipids, Porphyrias. I did most of the AD diseases, Metabolic Disorders, Lysosomal Storage diseases, glycogen storage diseases, chromosomal abnormalities, collagen disorders, DNA repair, lung cancers, neuro disorders, and vasculitides. I did probably 30% of the Misc, none of the onc drugs, some of mitochondrial, some tox and no mechanoreceptors. I found vitamins, AD diseases, DNA repair and Lung cancer to be the most high yield topics.
For Pixorize Immuno I only did immunosuppressants, immunodeficiencies, transfusion reactions and transplant rejections because they were the most high yield and required more pure memorization. I found Pathoma’s Immuno chapter to be quite good at covering the rest. I will say HS reactions were super high yield in general but I didn’t watch the Pixorize vids for them. I also had watched all of the Boards and beyond Immuno videos during MS1 and that probably subconsciously helped me on immuno more than I give it credit for.
I only started Pixorize during dedicated. I did not touch it during MS1 but I wish I would have.
Sketchy Micro and Pharm: If I could have done things differently, I would have tried to go through the Sketchy Pharm videos earlier. They are SO HELPFUL!!! A lot of people question their utility because of how much physiology they start with in each video and just how long the videos are, but man I can’t imagine every comprehending pharm without Sketchy. I got 21 of 22 questions on UWSA2 in the pharm section correct, solely because of Sketchy Pharm. Micro is both easy to get through and incredibly helpful. You just have to watch Micro. I had already gone through Micro once very diligently during MS1 so I only watched about 60% of the videos and only got through maybe 50% of the Pepper cards during dedicated. That came back to bite me as there were 2 questions on my real test about parasites that I was weak on.
Below is a narrative of my timeline:
June 2018 to June 2019: MS1 - our school gives CBSEs in December and June of our first year. I was one of those MS1s who wrote “270” on their bathroom mirror as a goal and thought I was a BAMF. I inconsistently did Anki during MS1 for certain disciplines. For example, for our neuro block I did Zanki Neuroanatomy. The big decks I mastered were Sketchy Micro (Pepper Micro specifically) and portions of Sketchy Pharm. I also inconsistently watched Boards and beyond for topics I struggled with. For our Pathology block I got through about half of Pathoma and Zanki but didn’t keep up with it at all as soon as MS2 started. I got a 161 in December of MS1 and a 165 in June on the CBSEs.
June 2019 to March 2020 MS2 - This is our clinical year as we do all of preclinical during MS1 in 12 months. I did okay during clinicals, honored half of my shelves and used mostly UW and Amboss + Tzanki. I got a 172 in December of MS2 on the practice CBSE the school gives. Pretty terrible.
March and Covid - By mid-March I had done nothing for Step 1 during MS2 year. I remember I had all these high aspirations to finish Amboss Qbank by March and get a head start on UW. However, ain’t nobody got time for that during the clinical year. All of MS2 year I basically just focused on clinical shelves and step 2 material. In mid April, an announcement from our school came out that they were making us push our step 1 dates up by 6 to 7 weeks, in order to make up our last rotation during what would have been our dedicated study period. I had originally scheduled my test for July 31 but had to move it to June 10th, in order to make up my Internal Medicine rotation between June 15 and July 24. I finished my Psychiatry/Neurology rotation from home on April 24 and started my 7 week dedicated on April 27. (sorry, lots of dates).
April - At the start of dedicated I generally tried to do 2 UW blocks in the morning and review them/ make anki cards based off of them that same day. I would also try to watch some Pathoma/Sketchy videos and move those Anki cards into my Step 1 deck. This meant I moved VERY SLOWLY. Side note: I sincerely believe that everyone who comes into dedicated with a 240 NBME has for sure already gone through one Qbank, watched all of Pathoma/Sketchy/Pixorize and done all of the Anki cards for those resources. Otherwise, there’s no other way to start with such a good foundation! These amazingly disciplined students then spend 6 weeks just finessing their testing strategy and then crank out a 260 on test day. Meanwhile, students like me who goof off MS1 year will usually start dedicated with a….
1st NBME, April 27 - 183. This was taken on my first day of dedicated. I took it with a friend and the whole time we were like “wtf… I have no idea what the hell is going on”. I legitimately guessed on 8 out of 10 questions on that exam. It rattled my cage.
Over the next week I used NBMEanswer(s) (when it was free) to review the questions I got wrong. This took me 2 and a half full days. Anyone who says it takes 3 hrs to review an NBME is lying or a demigod.
2nd NBME, May 2nd - 181. Blood pressure rising. I was 5 weeks out from my “scheduled date” of June 10 and not even passing... I decided to take 2 weeks to prep for UWSA1. I was still in the illusory world of denial saying “I can break 240 in 5 weeks time!” No. That was my pride speaking. If you have no mastery over any of the topics, you need more time.
UWSA1 - May 17th, 217. This was a rude awakening to say the least. The first of many humblings. I decided to push my test back to July 31st after realizing how hopeless my situation was. UWSA1 usually overpredicts your score so I was probably getting a 200-205 on the real thing at this point. I re-prioritized my time to finish Pathoma/Sketchy/Pixorize ASAP over the next 6 weeks. But once again I overestimated my own discipline and I didn’t finish Pathoma until August… 12 weeks later.
June - I started my IM rotation on June 15 and this actually really helped me understand some key topics (Renal Pharm, CV Pharm and Phys, etc.) I remember the feeling of breaking 80% for the first time on UW. It felt amazing. And then I got a 55% on the next block :D Although I had less time in the day because of clinical duties, I still probably watched 2 or 3 videos a night and did maybe 1 UW block as well. I was slowly working my way through Pathoma/sketchy during June.
July - During week 5 of my IM rotation, on July 19th, I took my 3rd NBME and got a 227. I was 2 weeks out from my July 31 date. I was happy to have made some good progress (181 on May 2 to 227 on July 19 over 10 weeks) but I still felt like a total failure. I had only gotten through maybe 70% of Pathoma at this point and 30% of Pixorize and Sketchy Pharm. There was still so much material I had yet to learn.This is when I began to realize that I lacked URGENCY. I was way too nonchalant about studying and would sometimes have a champions league game going while trying to do Anki. Hint: this does not work!!!
Also, I had wanted to be comfortably cruising on NBMEs in the 240s by this point, in order to safely break 240 on test day. I emailed my dean of student affairs and he said it would be difficult to add 15-20 points in 2 weeks. I texted my classmates and they agreed. I called my other brother (a PGY2) and he said “you only get one shot at this, make sure you feel comfortable before you take it”. I made the difficult decision that night to push my test back to Sep 13th. I was starting a 1 year MBA program on August 3rd but knew I could make time in the afternoons and evenings to study.
August - I kept grinding through Pathoma (with more urgency now) and finished it in early August. I started working through the remaining Sketchy Pharm and Pixorize I had in mid August and finished Sketchy Pharm in late August. Crucial to note: I had only done 20% of UW by August 23rd. I was so scared to use UW without having all my content covered that I delayed using the single most important resource. I shot myself in the foot big time.
On August 23rd I took NBME 18 and got a 223. Utter humiliation again. I thought: “4 points LOWER than the NBME I took 5 WEEKS AGO?!?” I called my brother in an anxious rut, devastated. He asked me “how much UW have you done?” I told him "800 or so questions". He said “bro, you’re trying to run a marathon on one leg, what the hell are you doing” — because of him I adjusted my plan and made the goal to do 1500 questions over the next two weeks, roughly 120-160 questions a day.
On August 29, six days later, I scored a 222 on NBME 23. I was LIVID. However, in retrospect I remember taking that test scared out of my mind and a bit too wired on caffeine. I took that test with way too much pressure on my shoulders. I remember dropping f bombs left and right in that test and getting super frustrated. Remember, these practice tests are PRACTICE. They are not the real deal. The point of taking them is to LEARN from them, not to have them determine (or destroy) your self worth. This article by Ben white gave me serious perspective on how to correctly approach practice test anxiety.
I was 2 weeks out exactly from my Sep 13th test date at that point. (Tangent: people say “save UW til dedicated” — I don’t agree with this at all. If you make Anki cards based off UW and consistently do them, it is way better to do UW early in your MS2 year. Maybe start on it 6 months before your Step 1 date… as long as you have a way to review the information UW teaches you, start whenever you want. The earlier you master UW content, the better. Sure, save maybe 1200 or so questions for dedicated but you absolutely do not have to save all 3000+ questions for a 6 week dedicated period. In fact I would advise against it.)
For the next 8 days (between Aug 30 and Sep 7) I cranked out 160 questions a day in UW, focusing on reviewing my incorrects immediately afterwards using the google spreadsheet method I wrote out above. I think this was crucial in getting me to externalize my reasoning process. I was starting to get >80% in UW more often and even broke 90% a few times. My scores were still pretty variable though. My last 10 UW scores (between sep 6 and sep 3) were 75, 75, 85, 60, 72, 77, 82, 67, 72 and 62.
On September 7th, I took UWSA2 1 week out from my actual test and scored a 247 (2 points lower than my eventual score). I cannot describe the incredible relief I felt getting that score. To this day I still don't know why the NBMEs were not accurate representations of my knowledge and that UW was. But I didn't care. I finally had something resembling hope. All the topics were finally coming together. Over the next week I reviewed UWSA2, did Anki like crazy to not lose my reviews, but internally I relaxed a bit knowing that UWSA2 was the most predictive test.
On Saturday Sep 12th, one day before my exam, I took the Free 120 and got 83% correct. This was the second confirmation that I was ready to sit for my exam. I was super relieved and thankful for this score. The score predictor equated this to a 243 and generally the conventional wisdom is that the Free 120 (because it is written by the USMLE) is very representative of the questions you will see on test day. I can’t agree more. When I took my test on Sep 13 I felt like I was taking the Free 120. The wording was very similar and of course the format is the exact same.
Sep 13 was test day. During my test there were basically 3 types of questions I came across:
  1. 60% were super easy questions that I recognized in 5-10 seconds and that I spent 30 seconds on in total.
  2. 25% were questions that I likely got correct, but had to spend 60 - 90 seconds thinking about.
  3. 15% were questions I had no idea how to even approach. I didn’t even know how to narrow down the answer choices. I spent 3 to 4 minutes just drooling at the screen hoping divine revelation would occur.
I finished each section with 10 minutes or more to spare and took breaks after blocks 2, 4 and after each of the last 3 blocks.
My biggest takeaway from test day would be to not second guess the easy questions. Yes, the question is actually asking you just for the MOA of penicillin. In general, eliminate any answer choices you can and then go with your gut. If you have no idea, follow Ben White's example and don't ruminate. Just guess and move on. Don't let one question sink your ship!
When I finished the test, I thought it was just like the free 120. I thought I would break 240 but I was overjoyed when I saw my score of 249. All the work paid off. I called my family immediately to celebrate.
For MS1s reading this: get through Pixorize, Pathoma, Sketchy Micro and Sketchy Pharm alongside your curriculum if you can. Do the Anki decks along with that if possible. I hear Anking is the new go to deck.
For MS2s reading this: If you can have pathoma, sketchy pharm + micro and pixorize mastered and anki-ed by the start of dedicated, you will be in an amazing position. Then just spend dedicated cranking through UW and focusing on your weak areas.
Some thoughts about testing strategy and First Aid: When you are learning material, do not learn the material in isolation. For example, when you learn about Primary biliary cholangitis, learn it in the context of its mimics aka Primary sclerosing cholangitis and Secondary biliary cholangitis. Same thing with the nephritic and nephrotic syndromes and basically all other topics. You want to learn how to distinguish and differentiate PSGN from Goodpasture or Wegener’s on test day, not just the isolated facts about PSGN. In that vein, focus on the SALIENT distinctions that separate pathologies from one another. First Aid is built for this! The tables are designed to help you compare and contrast topics so you can eliminate close but ultimately incorrect answer choices on test day. For example, consider Hashimoto’s thyroiditis and its relationship with anti-microsomal antibodies. No other pathology will show anti-microsomal antibodies (i.e. anti-microsomal Abs are pathognomonic/specific for Hashimotos), so make sure you have those specific associations down pat.
Quotes that got me through studying
“The work you are doing now can never be undone” - every day that you work and study you are building an unshakeable foundation! I’m a runner, so just as every mile in training builds your strength, every effort you put into studying builds your mastery.
“The pain of discipline is nothing compared to the pain of disappointment” - I remember thinking about this quote a lot during MCAT prep. No explanation needed. I knew I had a goal and I took the steps necessary to put myself in a position to reasonably attain the goal.
“We do not rise to the level of our expectations, we fall to the level of our training” - meaning, if you do all of UW and averaged >70-75% on the first pass, you are most likely in a decent place. Continuing the running analogy, if you’re training for a 10K and put 8-10 weeks of 30-40 mile weeks in and run an 8K at or near goal pace the week before your race, you’ll probably be ready on race day. What this quote is also saying is that reality does not care about your aspirations or high hopes. Reality cares how much actual work, training and practice you have put in to attain your goal.
That’s all I got. I hope this was helpful for you to read! Please comment or DM with questions. Thanks to all on this subreddit for your contributions during covid and best of luck to future examiners!

2020.09.30 19:21 onyaa MongoDB Inc. just arbitrarily changed Atlas promo code expiration dates

Thanks to this post from drmirk, I was alerted that the MongoDB Atlas Promo Codes I've been saving up for an upcoming open source project had their expiration dates changed from the year 2099, to, in some cases, now expired.
Via chat, a MongoDB Inc support rep confirmed this was intentional.
I get the need to limit the duration of promo codes, but arbitrarily changing expiration dates of existing, redeemed codes doesn't sit well.
Many of us have been diligently going through trainings and participating in the MongoDB World and MongoDB.local events to improve our knowledge of Atlas and sharpen our mongodb skills. Finding and redeeming promo codes was a nice tangential benefit and certainly helped endear me to MongoDB Inc. the company.
I'm going to continue to assume positive intent until the company responds at a higher level, but I'm curious how the expiration date switch sits with everyone else.
