2021.01.22 22:08 theRealLOCURO Online gigs as barista FI
There was this recent discussion of barista FI. I'm testing this stuff and just wanted to throw this out there.
There's a program by Amazon called Mechanical Turk. You do actions that computers can't process (like classify images) and answer short surveys. Additionally, there are content mills like iWriter where you don't have to be an amazing writer to find work.
I'm experimenting with both. The problem is is that they don't pay well, around $7-10/hr.
It's a lot better than my recent retail job. No standing up for a full shift. No boss. Work at your own speed and at home, take breaks when you want.
Additionally, I'm submitting bids on upwork to get better paying gigs for writing. It's very competitive though.
The big hangup is of course that I'm paid less than minimum wage (which will reach $15 soon in my state). It just goes against my instinct. I already have a rental property that's cashflowing nicely so I"ll be able to make a living. But I'd hardly be true FIRE.
I think I'll be happier than most barista FI jobs.
I'm still thinking how to play this.

2021.01.22 22:08 ham_beater Some suggestions for someone new to anime
So I'm pretty new to anime in general and I've only watched One punch man, attack on titan, and I think the garden of words. I can really appreciate the super good animation and would love some recommendations, maybe some cool ones with cooking or something

Hi guys. Was looking at an eBay listing for an NES when I read it had its lockout chip removed. Is this a bad thing in any way and what does this do? Would it allow me to play American games on the PAL console and is there any disadvantages to this being removed?

2021.01.22 22:08 AnoymouseB315 Should I Cave and Help My SIL Kids Even Though I Don't Want To?
This just happened and I'm pretty pissed about it.
When I met my fiancée's family there was some real friction between us. My fiancée was the youngest and had always been the one her mother and sister depended on for support and all that, as she worked for the fathers business before he died and it was sold. As my fiancée was not a planner and more of a follower than a leader, she had no savings, no assets, nothing. So when she got let go, she took her severance and let her mom, sister, and those kids eat it up.
I originally moved her from her state to my home state, where I was part owner of a hobby shop with my 'friends' and was beginning my fledgling design business. The Design business took off, the hobby shop died because my 'friends' treated it like a club house and not a job. Due to a lot of things, my fiancée convinced me to move back down around her family cause she didn't like the way I was being treated/ taken advantage of by my family. Only to land us in a position where we were used/ taken advantage of by HER family.
Neither her mom nor sister liked me at all at first. Cause Maya apparently got these odd notions that she was an individual and need to focus her time, effort, and money on building for our future instead of kowing to the whims of her family like always. You know, the shit she'd said to me to get me to to move. I had to work hard to actually get Maya to develop skills of self reliance and general responsibility. She'd been coddled by her father and was a victim of nepotism. The woman was used to eating out six days a week, she never cleaned up, and had never done taxes. I hate to say it, but kind of a kid in an adults body. She also could not say no to her family, though she criticized me for letting my family take advantage.
One of the things SIL used to do when her kids were younger was drop them off at our place without notice and drive off to work. Just leave them with us.
These kids were bad. Had attitudes, and had trouble reading and were poor academically. So since I wasn't going to be able to work when they were around, I started trying to help them with their education.
I made flash cards. I bought books. I made simple rules like they couldn't go out to play or go to the pool unless they read five pages. They needed to bring they home work to me and have it done. They needed to do better with the flash cards and I even made a sort of quiz game show thing with prizes and stuff. There was HEAVY resistance from the kids, but eventually there was starting to be improvement.
Now, my first sense that something was wrong with the parenting style is when I was talking to the oldest, we'll call him Jerky McJerkface, and he was out getting into trouble. He snuck out while I was working with the younger ones and got chased back to the house by a girl whom he was supposed to be dating, but not the same one he was supposed to be dating the day before. Anyway, he was like 13. I told him that he needs to be more responsible, cause he was the oldest. I told him he needed to set an example both here for his siblings, and out there for his family. I asked him if he wanted to be like all them other little N* words out there, acting trifling, running the streets, setting themselves up for failure. He was cool, but his mom came and was not happy.
She was of the mind that I was uppity, because of my degrees and my financial stability or whatever. You got no problem asking me for a hand out, but you kind of resent me for being successful. She goes;
"Don't tell my son that, I don't want him thinking he better than anyone else out there." I looked at her and I replied; "He already do, just not for the right reasons. He arrogant, bullheaded, and self absorbed, but not about his future, education, or anything positive. He wanna be running the streets." She gets mad and tells me I don't have the right to parent her kids. I tell her, you leave your kids at my house for almost six hours a day, because you don't respect that since I work from home that what I do is a real job. You expect me to babysit, feed the kids, make sure they homework done, and all of that, but you don't want me parenting them? She then does the; 'Oh if it so much of a bother than ya'll ain't gotta see my kids' dance. This is an idol threat, but nevertheless always gets Maya to try to calm her 'offended' sister down.
After this she tells her kids they don't have to do what I say or listen to me, cause I'm not there parent. All I got control over is my house, and that they should respect my house and the rules, but other than that they ain't got to listen to me. I'm like cool bet. So I don't even see them after that. They come over, I let them play PlayStation, watch tv and go outside. Until Jerk-face got sixteen and started having him watch them at home.
Fast forward to today. Eldest Jerk-face is a High School graduate who can't read. Got pushed around from school to school for disciplinary issues, smoking weed in class, and all that. He'd been passed a few times just cause of his age. Middle child, we'll call him, Salvageable, has after struggling and school and not wanting to be his brother, been calling me for my help. I had been helping him, and grades have improved, BUT, again mother got up in her panties cause she wanted Salvageable to stay home and watch the kids. This was before covid. After that, I just stopped, told him he gotta listen to his momma and can't come over when he wanted to. The little girls I will call, Future Gold-Digger and Future Thot, are beyond me. I didn't even try.
Highlights from them are; Future Gold-digger, 'I don't know why you think we need to remember anything, if we don't know something we can just look it up.' and 'I'm not going to college, I'm gonna get a guy with money and have him take care of me.' Being real, she ain't gonna be cute enough fort hat. The little one, future Thot, is obsessed with boys and material things.
Now that Covid has struck and SIL has been witness to they education; she always blamed any failing, any fault of theres on the teachers, or the school or anything else. No they just lazy and you let them be. But now that she has to be more active as they are at home, she sees EXACTLY how far behind they are, and Jerkfaces current lifestyle and situation got her all upset.
She is talking to Maya about all this while I'm moving all my cats old things to the storage in the back. I hear her ask if I could come over sometime and help the kids. Maya tells him that I most likely aren't going to do that, since the girls are a handful and don't like to listen and I'm already overworked as it is. My business had expanded and I subcontract other designers who need more hand holding than I'd like. I pretend I don't hear them and walk back through, but SIL stops me and asks me directly. I told her I don't have time for that. She talks about how I work from home and how I can take a break from my 'little art thing' to help family. I tell her I cannot, and that my little art thing is my job. She then tells me that I need to be more understand in these trying times; and that I should be more than willing to help out, 'Cause it takes a whole village'. I remind her that she made it abundantly clear that she didn't want my help raising her kids, and that they like this cause you never forced them to take they education seriously. She starts making the same excuses about the schools, the teachers, and everything else, but I tell her it's her fault. She gets mad and asks me if I'm gonna help out the kids or not. I tell her no; 'It's not my job to help her kids.' I have a child of my own I gotta worry about.
She gets all pissy and says I'm a vindictive jerk and storms out. My wife thinks I'm being too harsh, but understands why I did it. But I got folks who never talk to me, her cousins and her other sister down in Texas who I only met once and spoke to three times calling me up, trying to cuss me out, telling me I'm petty for not putting the kids first. I'm like no. You guys borrow money, never pay it back. Don't respect where that money comes from. Use, abuse, and disrespect me and I still tried to help them bad ass kids out. Now that Jerkface is an adult and you see that your way of doing things left you with a 19 year old who can barely read and best options is a job at Popeyes, you want me to fix it. No, that's not my job. My job is to make sure mine don't end up like that. My time and money is focused on that. Taking time out of my work day is taking money out my pocket and food out my daughters mouth; so... no. I don't think I'm wrong at all, but everyones giving me the; 'THINK ABOUT THE CHILDREN!'
I put a lot of time and effort into these kids before and was undermined by they mother. I know it ain't they fault, but they pretty difficult to be around and deal with too, with the exception of Salvageable, who can always ask for my help when he needs it. But like formally doing things, taking on that responsibility, nah, I don't have time for it and I don't want to anymore. But everyones acting like if I don't it'll be my fault if they end up like Jerkface.

I dreamt of a glowing cross it was slanted diagonally but more so pointing upwards. It was glowing white and blue. It made me feel peace and happiness, in my dream I smiled.
When I googled meanings it came up as a more troublesome omen, but it didn’t make me feel that way. What else could it mean?
I’m new to religion by the way, I just became Christian 2 weeks ago or so.
