I am seeking a female college student who will serve as a social companion for a young adult on the autism spectrum. The young adult enjoys participating in various outdoor activities, watching movies, and sports. The social companion must also have a passion for outdoor activities and sports. As for the schedule, it is flexible, and you can work 5 hours a week, with the option to extend your hours. Ideally, I prefer to hire someone available on Fridays or Saturdays, and you can complete your 5-hour shift in one day. A college junior or senior is preferred. The salary for this position is $22.00 per hour, with mileage and food included. However, you must complete online classes, pass a background check to work as a companion, and have your own transportation.

"Tim McGraw" Hint: blond guitarist with yellow jacket and red shorts on occasions
He said the way my blue eyes shined
How are her eyes? Needing sleep? So worried for her, she needs to eat more warm food. When she went to Vegas she was panhandling with song and she got $21 or so with her mom after throwing trash on the fountain like Detti soaped the fountain with a bar and got quickly bailed, and after the first girl scolded the security guard after the littering event. But what she earned with her mom that night was for 1 buffet that night. Not for breakfast. How is her mom? How is her makeup supply? She smeared her guitar with kohl from her tears?
Put those Georgia stars to shame that night
What do you mean? No more singers or celebs from Georgia could come to Nashville then/anymore? Or they were blinded by the LED light? Or the constellations put on a veil?
I said, "That's a lie"
Do you really have blue eyes? Or sunflowers are coming? You uplifted the homeowners of Georgia/ I heard real estate was quite affordable there. But your penthouse is $15K a month - does that include Lisa's 1800GOTJUNK services?
Just a boy in a Chevy truck
How old? Legal to drive? Tall enough to drive that truck? No limb fractures? Eye health OK? Is he wearing his mascot costume, eg Banana SLUG? Sun Devil? Blue Devil? Cardinal?
That had a tendency of gettin' stuck
How? Elmer's glue? Gorilla glue? Uhu?
On back roads at night
Oh, did you have special car lights on like according to the DMV book? And where did the back roads lead to - the stones?
And I was right there beside him all summer long
Why do you expect me to be with my date 24 hours all summer long? How can one date practice swimming in the pool when I am singing a duet with Alicia Keys or Beyonce on my phone in the gym nearby? How can another date earn money for us by Uber Eats while I'm at the office for Uber? How can a third date play tennis while I bargain with the sports store salesman about getting Penn balls vs Onix balls? How can a fourth date record his song in the studio while I coordinate the concert venue? How can fifth date comfort a downcast kid - not her own - with a Happy Birthday song while the peer circle arrange the audiovisual equipment on stage called Rhino Co.?
And then the time we woke up to find that summer gone
"When September Ends" was a cool song? Are you Sleeping Beauty? Who fought the dragon and the thicket for you? Who woke up the castle crew for you? Did you eat pufish? Who almost found a cliffhanger for you? So... what are you going to do in the Fall (Sem.)?
But when you think Tim McGraw
So you had his EP like Goodbye, Norma Jean single in CD? Cool. On Autoloop? What do you like about his songs?
I hope you think my favorite song
Which one? What do you love about it?
The one we danced to all night long
How many hours of dancing? How many calories burned? Was it like with Ed Sheeran for Perfect? What did you wear? What did he wear? Where did you dance? How many stars were in the sky that night? What styles of dancing did you do? How was "Loki" and "...Wonderland strummer"?
The moon like a spotlight on the lake
Cool poetry. Who do you think is worthy of performing on stage? Of having the spotlight? By the way, which lake were you talking about? Do you want to get an MFA degree and upon the conferral, you can write/perform for Equine Therapy Ranches where kids with sadness may go?
When you think happiness
Do you like Gretchen Rubin's work? Do you like Pharell's song, which is on Wii? What do you think of the emoticon deodorant?
I hope you think that little black dress
Do you know Jomaire Studio's sister in a little black dress and black stilettos for weddings? What do you think about Meghan Markle in a little black dress at a baseball game? I liked the white belt a lot.
Think of my head on your chest
Got the ALS challenge? How long did you have to wait for it? I thank Coleman too for supporting the neighborhood around Galleria, which had a cafe and their version of Sparkletts.
And my old faded blue jeans
Can anyone help her get Wrangler jeans? Or Rock Republic trousers? Or jeggings eg from the pharmacy? Or Old Navy blue denims?
When you think Tim McGraw
How often do you think of his name/face? Why? Do you pray for him?
I hope you think of me
Do you like Phantom of the Opera? What do you think if her dress? What if there was a modern version for Jabbawockeesz?
September saw a month of tears
What kind of tears? Was it because of first day of school again?
And thankin' God that you weren't here
Oh, what were the advantages of him not being "there"?
To see me like that
Were you wearing makeup in September - and what brands if so? Did you lose much weight in the summer(s)?
But in a box beneath my bed
Is it from ULine? Was the bed from Ikea or from Sleep Number?
Is a letter that you never read
I remember I had letters foregarding different people, like one of the top human/child traffickers of China and one on a cover for a football player and some for a farmer and some for a colleague and I regret one which was like under hypnosis (I praised his enumeration of "Crayola") - which I sent to someone whom I wanted to say goodbye and I found him as a storekeeper who shooed me away, as a guy who hung around the doorway of my bedroom at 3 am or so, as a guy wanting to know how to get a Peruvian passport, as a guy who bragged abou eating cat dumpling, maybe trying to gain 9 lives (is that the canned cat food?).
From three summers back
Oh you met him at around university? Thanks for your loyalty.
It's hard not to find it all a little bittersweet
You like Dove dark chocolate like fortune cookies? The Ghirardelli dark cocoa squares? The dark chocolate bars by the checkouts of dollar stores? The dark chocolate at the airports? Do you like black coffee? Like Colombian coffee? Do you like Whitney Houston's "I Will Always Love You"?
And lookin' back on all of that, it's nice to believe
How often and how long do you go into nostalgia? Did you do Throwback Thursday posts?
When you think Tim McGraw
What do you share about Tim McGraw?
I hope you think my favorite song
What is your favorite song, if it's okay to ask?
The one we danced to all night long
Was it a country song? Fast? Duet? With banjos or fiddles? Any props when you danced?
The moon like a spotlight on the lake
What was the phase of the moon then?
When you think happiness
What three things minimum would you do today to be happy?
I hope you think that little black dress
How is your weight (I am concerned with your photos, and you look like a politician in a Christmas green dress in front of a mic, with empty row before her)? When did you buy that little black dress (the song's topic) for yourself? Waist size? Do you think Lululemon or Walgreens leggings would go well with it, like a ballerina?
Think of my head on your chest
Did you have to sanitize the Coleman? What was in it?
And my old faded blue jeans
What brand? When did you buy it? Was it fashionably torn?
When you think Tim McGraw
Someone said he has an MBA - would you be inspired to get an MBA degree as well?
I hope you think of me
What are your three hopes before the weekend? And when someone remembers you, what are the top three qualities of yours that people can publish/televise/discuss/promote action about you?
And I'm back for the first time since then
Where did you return? How?
I'm standin' on your street
What have you been wearing on that street? How long/what time have you been standing there?
And there's a letter left on your doorstep
Can you summarize the letter in a Tweet? What's the color of the envelope? Does it need the HMat?
And the first thing that you'll read is:
What is the first thing that you think of every morning? And every sunset?
"When you think Tim McGraw I hope you think my favorite song Someday you'll turn your radio on
What is your favorite radio show and your favorite radio channel? Your favorite song on the radio? Who is your favorite DJ? I hope it takes you back to that place"
What place? How does it look like?
When you think happiness I hope you think that little black dress Think of my head on your chest And my old faded blue jeans When you think Tim McGraw I hope you think of me
Oh, think of me Mmmm
He said the way my blue eyes shined Put those Georgia stars to shame that night I said, "That's a lie"
Whom do you accuse to be lying?

2023.06.01 16:37 dickforbraiN5 Does anyone else think Toronto winters aren't that bad?

I like having four seasons and I find that it's just cold enough to have snow instead of rain, and just short enough where you don't feel like it's half the year (like you would in QC or AB).
I don't mind bundling up a bit, and I don't let it stop me from getting outside. The snow can be beautiful and winter sports are fun. When we're in the ugly part of the shoulder seasons, (cold, rainy, no leaves) I found niche outdoor hobbies that are only possible at that time of year. Plus, you get the parks all to yourself!

2023.06.01 14:17 teaconfused Busy boyfriend and worried gf and lack of communication

Edit: my bf and I live in two different cities, he’s a 20-25 min drive from my place but because I don’t drive it’s an 1.5hr commute by bus (3 of them) each way. He lives with his parents since he took a gap year so I can’t go to his place and nor is he home often. The other side I live alone and his workplace in my city and sports arena is somewhat in my area
My bf has been way too busy since he started his job. We had only been dating when he started working there and now we’re nearly 2 months into our relationship. Last night because of smth he did I finally burst open and told him about how I felt . It weren’t well organized thoughts nor did I have solutions. Just 4 days before that I texted him how I felt and back and forth we texted paragraphs and fixed it. This time I had to say it on call. I told him I felt I’m on a pedestal, he’s been too busy, I’m settling for the bare minimum’s and everything. I told him what my friends thought too. He ofc got pissed that my friends who don’t have happy relationships themselves said stuff and that they didn’t know shit about him, they didn’t know shit about us and how could I listen to them. He was telling me I need to mature up and not be such a kid. He thought I’m finding excuses to slowly breakup and I thought he’s doing the same. He made me sound desperate for a moment saying should I call u instead of working x times a day etc; and I’m like I never told u to quit ur job or sports for me. Mans has to drive around a lot, Ik his job is exhausting and he claims that everytime he’s free after work or in the morning he calls me and on his day off he “tries to give me as much time” Tbh idk how to feel about things because we both don’t have solutions. I didn’t have anything because even Ik I was being absurd to some extent but on the other hand he wasn’t being too helpful either and I altho he was pissed I felt that he turned the things on me instead. Yesterday was the first time ever he actually got really mad at me and spoke in a rather louder voice which he has never done till date. He said that I need to stop being such a kid and mature up, and how did I even turn 19 then. And when I told him abt my fear about him leaving me he said that if he had to he would’ve left longtime back. But he loves me and wants me. (Ik him, he’s the kinda guy who if he doesn’t like smth he will make an excuse or not put any effort at all and leave.) he as reassured me time and again that he loves me and won’t leave me but due to circumstances I always feel the lack of effort. I told him my concerns yesterday even tho I know he has to go on a work trip and I won’t see him for 4-5 days. We have a lack of communication, not sure how to fix it but we want to be together. He’s joining my uni in 3 months and that’s all that’s keeping me going at this point. I know I’m busy too but with my adhd I struggle with prioritizing and then I focus more on him than on myself. My anxiety kicks in and makes things worse. I told him this is happening because I fear losing him and I don’t wanna be hurt again given my past. And he said he loved me and he wanted to make it work and everything but I can’t seem to believe his words, I know it’s absurd to expect him to drive so much everyday at work, to his academy and everything and also want him to come see me but what else am I supposed to do when I don’t see him often? We ft in the night after 11 cause that’s when He comes home and I’m famished by then, he rarely wakes up before 10am while I’m up at 7 and I study or prep for school or work. If he’s ever up by chance he calls me for an Hr when he needs to get ready for work. The thing is since we see each other so less we never really have much convo or rather meaningful serious convos. I lowkey get hurt over how things are going and ik relationships take time and effort and we both want to be in a long term relationship so I’m not sure what to do.

2023.06.01 14:12 sonofabutch No game today, so let's remember a forgotten Yankee: Jackie Jensen, "The Golden Boy"

Jackie Jensen, "The Golden Boy", was a superstar athlete in the 1940s who seemed destined for greatness as the heir to Joe DiMaggio... only to be supplanted by a different golden boy, the great Mickey Mantle.
Jensen would eventually live up to the hype, but with the Red Sox -- but his career prematurely because, as baseball expanded to the west coast, his fear of flying made road games unbearable!
The Yankees between 1947 and 1964 were utterly dominant, winning 15 pennants and 10 World Series. And it wasn't just the major league team that was successful. The Yankees of this era were loaded up and down the system, from Rookie ball to their two Triple-A teams!
With such a loaded major league roster, the Yankees had many talented players stuck either on the end of the bench or in the minors who would eventually find an opportunity with other teams, including Bob Cerv, Vic Power, Gus Triandos, Lew Burdette, Jerry Lumpe, Bob Porterfield, and Bob Keegan, who would all be All-Stars with other teams. Clint Courtney would be the 1952 A.L. Rookie of the Year runner-up after the Yankees traded him to the Browns, and Bill Virdon was the 1955 N.L. Rookie of the Year with the Cardinals (and then Yankee manager from 1974 to 1975!).
But the most talented player who just couldn't find the playing time in New York was Jack Eugene Jensen, born March 9, 1927, in San Francisco. His parents divorced when he was 5, and he grew up poor, his mother working six days a week, 12 hours a day. Jensen said the family moved 16 times between kindergarten and eighth grade -- "every time the rent came due."
After serving in the U.S. Navy during World War II, Jensen went to the University of California in 1946 on the G.I. Bill. There he became one of the most famous college players in the country, leading Cal to the Rose Bowl. In 1947, he was the starting fullback as well as the team's top defensive back, and in 1948, he rushed for 1,000 yards and was an All-American.
He also was a tremendous two-way baseball player, pitching and hitting for the Golden Bears in 1947 as the won the very first College World Series, beating a Yale team that had George H.W. Bush playing first base. In 1949, he was an All-American in baseball, too.
His blond hair, good looks, and athletic accomplishments earned him the nickname "The Golden Boy."
Halfway through his junior year, Jensen left Berkeley to turn pro. Jensen would later say he couldn't risk playing a career-ending injury playing for free while teams -- baseball and football -- were trying to sign him to big-money contracts.
"There was a money tree growing in my backyard. Why shouldn't I pluck off the dollars when I wanted to?"
Jensen considered a number of offers, including from the Yankees, before signing a three-year, $75,000 contract with the Oakland Oaks of the Pacific Coast League. Jensen said he thought he'd face better competition in the Pacific Coast League, the top minor league of the era, than he would at the bottom of the Yankee farm system. He was right about it being more of a challenge -- he hit an unimpressive .261/.317/.394 in 510 plate appearances with the Oaks.
At the end of the year, the Oaks sold his contract (and that of Billy Martin, another Northern California kid) to the Yankees.
That same year, Jensen married his high school sweetheart, Zoe Ann Olsen, an Olympic diver. (By age 18, she had won 14 national diving championships and a silver medal in the 1948 Olympics.) "Together they looked like a Nordic god and goddess," Sports Illustrated reported. Nicknamed "the sweethearts of sports," they were the Dansby Swanson and Mallory Pugh of their era. More than 1,000 people attended their wedding.
Jensen would start the 1950 season not in the minors but in the Bronx. He joined the Yankees in a time of flux. They though they'd won the 1949 World Series, the Yankees knew they had to make some changes, with 35-year-old Joe DiMaggio nearing the end of his career. And their heir apparent was not Mickey Mantle -- at the time an 18-year-old shortstop playing in the Class C league, the equivalent of A-ball today -- but the 23-year-old Jensen.
But Jensen disappointed, hitting just .171/.247/.300 in 70 at-bats, and only starting in 13 games. Watching from the bench most of the season, Jensen would later lament the lost year of development, saying he'd have been better off playing every day in the Pacific Coast League.
The Yankees won the pennant for a second straight year, and in the World Series he once again was left on the bench. His only action was as a pinch runner in Game 3 as the Yankees swept the Phillies. That "Moonlight Graham" appearance would be his only taste of the post-season in an 11-year career.
The following year would be DiMaggio's last, and Mantle's first. Jensen began the year as the Yankees' starting left fielder and proved he belonged, hitting .296/.371/.509 through the end of July... and then, shockingly, was demoted to Triple-A and replaced with previously forgotten Yankee Bob Cerv.
I can see why they called up Cerv -- the University of Nebraska stand-out was tearing up Triple-A, leading the American Association in batting average (.349), home runs (26), triples (21), RBIs (101), and total bases (261) -- but why demote Jensen, who had a 140 OPS+ in the majors? Maybe the Yankees felt the brash 23-year-old needed to be taken down a peg. In any event, Cerv hit just .214/.333/.250 in August and was sent back to Triple-A, but Jensen also was left down there. He hit .263/.344/.469 and was recalled after the Triple-A season ended, only getting into three games (he went 3-for-9).
Mantle, too, had started the season with the Yankees, and after hitting .260/.341/.423 through the middle of July, was sent down to Triple-A. But he hit .361/.445/.651 in 166 at-bats, and unlike Jensen was back in the bigs by August 24. He would play pretty much every game the rest of the season, hitting .284/.370/.495 in 95 at-bats.
The torch had clearly been passed -- Jensen was no longer the heir apparent to DiMaggio. In the World Series that year, Mantle was the starting right fielder, and Jensen wasn't even on the post-season roster.
Jensen was so disappointed with how the Yankees had treated him in 1951 that he talked to the San Francisco 49ers about switching to pro football, but ultimately decided to stick with baseball.
Never shy about what he said to reporters, Jensen told The Sporting News on October 24, 1951:
"I felt so badly about the treatment that I received from the Yankees that, although I was in New York at the end of the season, I didn't feel like sticking around to even watch the club play in any of the World's Series games."
"I do not feel the Yankees were justified in sending me to the minor leagues. When I was shipped to Kansas City, I was doing as good a job as any Yankee outfielder and better than some of them. I was hitting .296, which was ten points better than Hank Bauer and 30 points better than Joe DiMaggio, Gene Woodling and Mickey Mantle. Yet Casey Stengel didn't give me the chance I felt I deserved."
Despite blasting his manager in the press, Jensen was still the property of the Yankees. That off-season, teams were circling, hoping to pry away the talented but disgruntled outfielder. There were newspaper reports of offers from the St. Louis Browns, the Detroit Tigers, the Philadelphia Athletics, the Washington Senators, the Cleveland Indians, and the Boston Red Sox -- with one rumor being Ted Williams to the Bronx in exchange for Jensen and several other players. (A Red Sox scout called the rumored deal "a lot of hogwash.")
Sportswriters spent the off-season speculating whether DiMaggio would retire, and if he did, whether Jensen or Mantle would take over as the center fielder, as there were still concerns that Mantle, who had hurt his knee in the 1951 World Series, wouldn't be fully recovered by the start of the season.
On Opening Day, April 16, 1952, it was Jackie Jensen in center and Mickey Mantle in right. Jensen went 0-for-5 with a GIDP; Mantle, 3-for-4 with a double, a walk, and a stolen base! Seven games into the season, Jensen was 2-for-17 (.118) and found himself on the bench. He'd never play for the Yankees again. On May 3, the Golden Boy was traded to the Washington Senators along with Spec Shea, Jerry Snyder, and Archie Wilson in exchange for Irv Noren and Tom Upton.
In two years with the Senators, Jensen hit an impressive .276/.359/.407 (112 OPS+), but the team was terrible, and Jensen wasn't happy. Still just 26 years old, he later said he had almost quit after the 1953 season... particularly after a harrowing flight to Japan for a series of exhibition games with a squad of All-Stars that included Yankees Yogi Berra, Eddie Lopat, and Billy Martin. That experience gave Jensen a lifelong fear of flying, a phobia that became so intense eventually he could only fly with the help of sleeping pills... and a hypnotist!
He might have quit if not for the trade on December 9, 1953, that sent him to the Boston Red Sox for pitcher Mickey McDermott and outfielder Tom Umphlett. He was homesick, he hated flying, and he now had two little kids at home. Red Sox general manager Joe Cronin convinced Jensen to come to the Red Sox, telling him that Fenway Park was tailor made for his swing. Cronin was right: Jensen was a career .279/.369/.460 hitter, but .298/.400/.514 at Fenway.
It was in Boston that Jensen finally lived up to the hype, becoming a two-time All-Star and winning the A.L. MVP Award in 1958 and a Gold Glove in 1959. During his seven seasons in Boston, he hit .282/.374/.478 in 4,519 plate appearances. In his MVP season, Jensen hit .286/.396/.535 (148 OPS+) with 31 doubles, 35 home runs, and a league-leading 122 RBIs. During his peak with the Red Sox, 1954 to 1959, Jensen's average season was .285/.378/.490 (127 OPS+) with 28 doubles, 26 home runs, 111 RBIs, 14 stolen bases, and 3.6 bWAR. During those six seasons, no one in the American League -- not Mickey Mantle, not Ted Williams, not Al Kaline -- had more runs batted in than Jackie Jensen.
Of course, Mantle was the far better player -- even in Jensen's MVP season, Mantle had more runs, hits, home runs, walks, and a 188 OPS+ -- but Jensen's 127 OPS+ between 1954 and 1959 would have been an upgrade over the aging Hank Bauer's 110 OPS+ in right or the left field merry-go-round of Norm Siebern (113 OPS+), Irv Noren (107 OPS+), Enos Slaughter (103 OPS+), and previously forgotten Yankee Hector Lopez (101 OPS+). Casey Stengel would later say the Jensen trade was the worst one the Yankees had made while he was manager.
Despite his success, Jensen was sometimes booed by the Boston fans, just as they sometimes booed Ted Williams. There even was an article in Sport magazine, "What Do They Want From Jackie Jensen?", taking Red Sox fans to task for their unreasonably high demands from the Golden Boy. In 1956, in a game at Fenway Park against the Yankees, the hometown fans were razzing Jensen so much that teammates had to restrain him from going into the stands after a fan. Later that same game, Williams misplayed a wind-blown fly ball from Mantle, and the fans booed lustily. The very next play, Williams made a leaping catch at the scoreboard to rob Yogi Berra of a double. But Williams, still furious, spit into the crowd. He was later fined $5,000.
And Jackie was unhappy to be away from home. He and Zoe Ann had bought a house near Lake Tahoe, where they could both ski and golf year-round, as well as hit the casinos. They also had a home in Oakland, and a restaurant there, and each year Jensen hosted a pro-am golf tournament. But the marriage was struggling. Zoe Ann, once nationally known for her Olympic exploits, was frustrated to be a stay-at-home mom in the shadow of her famous husband, and Jackie became angry if she engaged in her favorite outdoor hobbies, suspecting there were men around.
Jensen's fear of flying also had become even more intense. Sometimes he was so drugged up that he had to be carried on and off the plane, fueling rumors that he was a drunk. Other times he took trains or even drove while his teammates flew.
Once again Jensen was talking about retirement, and in Spring Training 1957, the Red Sox allowed him to train with the San Francisco Seals, Boston's Triple-A team, rather than having to go to Florida. But he was still miserable. That year, he told Sports Illustrated:
“In baseball you get to the point where you don’t think you have a family. It just looks like I’m not built for this life like some ballplayers. You are always away from home and you’re lonesome, and as soon as I can, I intend to get out.”
The 32-year-old Jensen announced his retirement after the 1959 season, and he spent 1960 home with Zoe Ann and their children and running his restaurant. But he returned in 1961. After hitting just .130 in April, Jensen took a train from Detroit home to Reno, determined to quit once again. After a week away, he rejoined the team and had six hits in his next 10 at-bats. By the end of the season he was at .263/.350/.392, and this time he quit for good.
After leaving baseball, Jensen invested in real estate and a golf course, but lost most of his money. He then got a job working for a Lake Tahoe casino, was a national spokesman for Camel cigarettes, Wonder Bread, and Gillette, and even tried selling cars. Ironically, Jackie found himself on the road almost as much as he had been as a ballplayer. In 1963, he and Zoe Ann divorced, remarried, and then divorced again.
In 1967, Jensen became a TV sportscaster, married his producer Katharine Cortesi, and eventually teamed up with Keith Jackson calling college football games for ABC and a college baseball coach, first at the University of Nevada-Reno and then at the University of California, and he managed the Red Sox team in the New York Penn League in 1970. In 1977, Jackie and Katharine moved to Virginia and started a Christmas tree farm while he coached baseball at a military academy. About five years later, on July 14, 1982, he died of a heart attack at age 55.
You Don't Know Jack(ie):
In 1958, Jensen told Sports Illustrated that the biggest thrill of his career wasn't being an All-American or an All-Star, it wasn't winning an MVP or a World Series. "The biggest is having played in the same outfield with both DiMaggio and Williams."

We have another round of new mods to announce, fidelityinvestments! Help us welcome them to the team.
Hey fidelityinvestments,
We’re excited to announce some mod additions to help respond to all your posts and comments.
Here are some brief bios to help you get to know them a little better:
I’m a big Cincinnati football fan, even if that includes losing brain cells watching them on Sundays. I love my vintage early ‘90s SUV most days, and it’s even fun to fix on the days it inevitably breaks. Speaking of retro, I’m a massive classic rock nerd, and my vinyl collection is unparalleled, along with my love for ‘80s instant cameras.
Hey everyone! I have been with Fidelity since December 2020. I enjoy traveling, photography, and binge-watching TV shows. I play trivia once a week with my friends and family, but you wouldn't know it based on our performance most nights (something we are all too familiar with as Cincinnati sports fans). On the beach looking for shark teeth or in a hammock on a nice day are my happy places.
Texan, USAF Veteran, Gen-Xer. I’ve been at Fidelity for 16 years, 12 of them working in tech support. I’m working toward an M.A. in creative writing and close to publishing a collection of essays about military life experiences. I'm also neck-deep into writing my first sci-fi novel. When I’m not writing for Fidelity and myself, I’m striving to live a strenuous life outdoors with my camera and journal, leading a hiking club and a rucking crew, and serving my local community in times of need.
I’m a writer, editor, and media addict. If you can name it, I’ve probably binge-watched it. While I love plants, the only one that has survived me is a very stubborn aloe vera that just sprouted two new buds (I really don’t understand how). I enjoy bowling, getting skull tattoos, and collecting art.
Alongside being a finance girly, I like to keep myself entertained with all kinds of things. I love to travel and am currently working my way through the 50 states—and boy, do I have a long way to go! When I am not traveling, I am either working toward completing the theological program at my church, watching one of the big three animes, or trying new recipes off the internet. I've already been working with this community, but I look forward to where the future takes us!
I love snowboarding, country concerts, and impulsively booking last-minute flights. I want to visit all 50 states and as many international destinations as possible! Europe is next on the travel list. I love dry humor, and I also have a pet hedgehog.
Hey all! I am so thrilled to be a part of this community. I have been with Fidelity since 2021. Outside of my role here, I love to do things with my family. We enjoy taking trips to zoos and aquariums. Much of my free time in the warmer months is spent at the lake camping and boating. I love being outdoors.
I am originally from Texas but have lived in the beautiful state of Colorado for a little over five years now, and I’ve been with Fidelity for over two years. When I’m not working, I enjoy hiking all over Colorado with my German Shepherd, Kaiser. I’m also a huge music junkie and love to travel. You can either catch me at a concert or on a flight to somewhere new. I’m excited to be a part of this wonderful community!
We welcome them to the team and know they are excited to engage with you. Anyone’s bio relatable to you?

2023.06.01 13:56 dbernard4652 25M Aussie looking for some Christian friends

Hey everyone, hope you’re all having a good week :)
Keen to meet some new people and make some new Christian friends to chat and socialise with. I’m from Melbourne, Australia.
A bit about me: I’m 25, genuine, easy going and friendly here. I love experiencing new things and getting out of the comfort zone. Enjoy being outdoors, travelling, going to the gym, playing a bit of basketball, aviation, listening to music, sport in general. Open to exploring and learning new hobbies and interests as well as things in general. Keen to discuss Christianity and faith.
Planning on heading to the Medjugorje Youth Festival in July so hit me up if anyone is planning on heading there too.
Be great to meet some cool genuine people and have some interesting conversations.
Send a DM through with a bit about yourself if interested in chatting :) Cheers

2023.06.01 13:37 Arolen5 Just a Rant

So very recently I've been packing on the muscles and hitting the gym hard. My fitness has been pretty important to me for the last decade or so, but I really got in to being muscular when my ex and I split a couple years ago. I love being muscular but he wanted me petite and toned. I got used to being petite and toned.
Fast forward to recently and I have been getting a lot of comments on my physique. Now this isn't new per se, I have always been the "for person" at work and such but the little self conscious part of me that wanted to be that skinny and toned girl is cringing.
I was out with my current BF, tagging along to his weekend outdoor passion. Always tons of other guys around, it's a group sport. Well I was off by myself while he played a match and I saw some guys off to the side looking my direct. I overhead them laughing and one guys was like, "Yeah man I bet she could beat me at arm wrestling."
I hate to admit it but I immediately got a little self conscious. My BF was like damn straight you can, bet he's just jealous cause you're jacked babe. Very supportive, but I wish my brain was just as supportive 🙄
Fast forward to yesterday. I was at my gym, when I was done with my workout I noticed a guy that I swap words with on occasion. I hadn't seen him in a minute so I swung by to see how he was. Ensue light chit-chat. Then he proceeds to go, "You're looking pretty buff! Is that what you're going for?" I was a little taken a back and again, inner me cringed. I laughed and said whatever happens, happens. Usually this guy has been very gym bro, "looking jacked! Do you do shows? Etc" with his comments on occasion, but this one just hit different than usual.
I feel like I am getting more comments on my physique lately and I am just trying to get my brain behind a more, "Damn right I'm muscular, strong and awesome!" way of thinking. . .but damn is it hard sometimes.
Not really looking for validation, but needed to vent cause I am sure at least a few ladies here can understand the feeling.
Anyway, if no one has told you today; you're doing great. You got this shit. Have a good workout! Have a good day!

2023.06.01 13:15 ShellMan417 Fostering a teen

Hey guys,
So, here’s my story. I’m currently a stay at home dad with a 16yr old foster son. He’s a good kid, but I am really struggling with being at home alone with him for 8+hours a day. My wife and I decided to fosteadopt, but the process took so long that our lives shifted just as we received him as a placement. Originally, we were both working from home. Now, she works in person 5 days a week. I was sort of thrust into this single parent like situation suddenly and without preparation. My issue is not knowing how to fill the hours with him. He doesn’t like being alone, so it’s tough to get any work done. He doesn’t play any sports, he doesn’t have any friends, so all he does is play video games. We live in a neighborhood, so I don’t have much for him to do outdoors. I do take him to a local state park about 4 times a week and we hike/fish/kayak for a few hours. I’m just looking for some advice on how to find things for him to do, he doesn’t have a license yet, but I can drop him off/pick him up. Plus, honestly, I’d like to have someone to message with sometimes just to have adult conversations lol, my friends (the few I have) are not friendly to adoption or fostering, so talking with them is painful.
