2023.05.28 18:35 Gemsofwisdom Free or cheap summer activities for kids

I've gotten tired of the mommy blogs click bait posts that have the same list of free of cheap kids activities for Summer. Can we collectively make our own here? It can pertain to all ages, different regions, and climates. Then we can all use this to reference as needed in the future, click bait free!
Local libraries near us have a Summer reading program. Also different scheduled events to attend.
Swimming in natural areas or splash pads. Oftentimes there's a playground near by. We pack a beach picnic. I freeze yogurt tubes, freeze peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, freeze water, popcorn, frozen grapes... Lunch slowly defrosts, but stays refreshing by keeping drinks cold. We bring shovels and buckets and play in the sand. Plus do nature scavenger hunts.
Playground marathons. Drive further away from your house where there are multiple playgrounds and go to every one on the way home.
Drive in movies or free movies in the park.
Free concerts in the park. Oftentimes I'll Google free events near (wherever you live) to find these events.
Feel free to add to the list!

2023.05.28 18:35 splishsplashintebath [Event] Impresa Edile Orsini II

The Orsini turned their eyes home for their next project. They had proven themselves to be gracious overlords, revitalising the previously destitute Alessandria from a small collection of vineyards and farms to a prosperous town with a robust mining industry. They sought to expand their mining industry further and construct more specialised buildings to process the ores from their mines. It is rumoured that gold miners discovered zinc deposits while mining new tunnels, and the Orsini will dispatch surveyors to locate more zinc in the hopes they may produce brass in newly constructed metalworks. A jeweller will also be constructed to make use of the gold currently mined in the hills.
The textile industry has always had a home in Alessandria, and the Orsini wished to see it expanded significantly. Sheep farms would have to be constructed in the countryside, and clothmakers would be built in Alessandria itself. Magnaneries would also be constructed to diversify the textiles they had and to produce luxury textiles.
Here is evidence for:
Looking to build:
Sheep Farm
Luxury Clothmaker
Gold Mine
Iron Mine
Copper Mine
Zinc Mine

2023.05.28 18:34 Jesuschristanna Moving in with a reactive senior dog

So we’re moving into a new place with a resident pug who is an old lady and she can barely walk anymore sadly. My dog is generally okay off leash once he’s met another dog (he can be defensive at first but usually chills once he sniffs the other dog out and recognizes they’re not a threat), but she can be a little feisty/reactive. I’m worried about how he’ll react if he comes to greet her and she snaps at him (which she’s been known to do to other dogs). My dog is a 65 lb pit bull so definitely want to keep the peace and keep everyone safe. I’m thinking I will keep him in my room or in the crate when I’m not home, but hoping to have a peaceful situation where both dogs can be out and coexisting. Just trying to figure out how to make sure my dog is comfortable and not too curious or anxious around her because when he’s anxious that’s when he tends to exhibit more problematic behavior (he’s never been totally aggressive per se towards another dog off leash but he has been a little overly stimulated in certain situations resulting in some barking and lunging). Also want to make sure the pug tolerates him too, especially since she can’t move much on her own. Any input welcome!

2023.05.28 18:33 sanguiniuswept Multiple things after the new mobile update

Why did so many things change, and who thought the changes were good?
First, how do i go back to sorting my home page by rising instead of hot or top or whatever it is? I like to get in on threads when they're new, not after there are hundreds of comments and mine will never be seen.
Second, how do i get my home page to stop suggesting subreddits? I don't care about many of them, and if i did, I'd already be subscribed to them. I use the home page instead of the popular page for a reason. I was to see what i want to see, and nothing else.

2023.05.28 18:33 jamesaurelien 24 [M4R] Netherlands/Anywhere/Online - Alt nerds/creatives, let’s chat!

Hello Reddit! Preface: I am queer and polyamorous but not specifically looking for romance (although welcome!) - friendships are very much welcome too. I just want to meet cool folks and see where things go on a case by case. 💕
So, about me: my name is James and I am from the Netherlands. 24 years old like the title says.
I have a bit of a paradox where I prefer to spend my time at home, yet I can hardly sit still. I work fulltime as of now, I write original fiction (I have a book published!) and also fan fiction, I sing and am practicing harsh vocals (currently not taking lessons but wanting to pick them up again), and I also am practicing my drawing because I have plans/hopes to pursue a tattoo apprenticeship somewhere in the future. I have a degree in animal care but am currently not working in that field. You will find me mostly in my house working on my art, or doing some reading. I do also enjoy just lying in bed and watching some shows, although I have the habit of rewatching my comfort shows over and over again.
I am also big on ethics: I am antinatalist and vegan (8 years) and I do several types of vegan activism, been at that for years as well.
I am sober and I plan to stay that way, I am an atheist (and antitheist), I am neurodivergent (autism and ADHD-C). I have a huge Harry Potter (Marauders era) obsession, although I of course do not support JKR. My Hogwarts house is Hufflepuff. I love the band Ghost, also been listening to a lot of Batushka and making my way into the heavier metal genres. Snakes are my favorite animals. I love my weighted blanket and I love taking naps. I love nighttime. I love tattoos (of course otherwise I wouldn’t want to be a tattoo artist). I love star mint tea. I love Pokémon up until the most recent games and all. I am currently reading Why I’m No Longer Talking To White People About Race. Eh… I think that’s all I got for now, haha.
Location does not matter, although local people would be great, it is not a requirement. Gender does not matter. If you cool, you cool. 🫶🏻

2023.05.28 18:33 Economy-Law-9242 The Ender Dragon

In recent years the Ender Dragon has become an easy feat amongst many who play Minecraft.
Many can beat the game in under a hour without breaking a sweat. To fix this problem Mojang could do a number of things to increase the difficulty of the game.
1) Create a "ultra hardcore" difficulty which reduces the players number of hearts to just 1. This would prevent players from using the popular bed tactic as the blast would cause them to lose their hardcore world.
2)They could make the Ender Dragon fight more challenging by updating its AI. Instead of the Dragon perching at random times, the player must do something in order for it to perch they could also make the Dragon more agile to dodge various projectiles.
3)The devs could add another boss that you are required to defeat before leaving the end. You'd have to retrieve 4 dragon heads from End Ships and place them around the Main Island Portal similar to how you would respawn the Ender Dragon, this boss would have triple the health and damage of the Ender Dragon and would test the player greatly.

2023.05.28 18:33 MasterFridge I think my girlfriend is stuck under the yolk of her abusive ex

This is a weird one, not sure how to explain it so here goes..
My girlfriend and I have been together for close to 7 months. Her ex is the definition of controlling and possessive, lets call him John. They were together for over a decade and have a kid. John and the kid are in their home country since before xmas. John doesn’t know about me and her being together. She says she hides it so she doesn’t loose her kid, also so John doesn’t use her kid against her.
Imo she already lost the kid to John “side” by letting them go to their home country again. The kid has had John and John’s family in his ear the entire time, doing nothing all day. Not even school, as they plan was the kid to come back.
Here’s the catch, the kid doesn’t want to come back without John and wants them to be a happy family again and live together. Whereas my girlfriend doesn’t want to live with John again. She doesn’t want to live with John ever again, which I don’t blame her given the things she told me. John did the usual stuff a possessive and controlling person do. Beating, going through belongings and her phone, screaming at her in front of the kid and not letting her have any friends at all.
Recently she keeps ranting about it how much of a tw*t he is which is fair enough. John expects whenever he calls her for her to answer immediately, when she doesn’t he’ll keep calling and spamming the phone. She says she’ll block him etc. but never keeps to it as her kid is still with John. He demands photos of proof she is doing the thing she says but he can do whatever he wants. Which is only encouraged by his family.
This brings me to the most recent sh*tshow. After getting in last night we (gf and I) tried to watch tv before bed, but John spammed her in the same way as I mentioned before prior to getting him. She called John when we got back home and had a go at him. The day after, we’re eating lunch and I see her taking a photo of her food. I asked her why she’s taking a photo of her food as I’ve never seen her do it before. She said she always has and turned to me and said “am I not allowed to take a photo of my food?”, to which I said, “I’m not saying you need permission I just asked why” she said I’m annoying sometimes and I said how so. Apparently by asking a lot of questions, (I asked her once). She then gave in and said she just like to when it looks good. I thought fair enough but it was chips in a bowl with ketchup.
Anyhow, after she took the photo her phone buzzed and I know it was John as he’s the only one that talks to her, other than myself and obviously I’m not talking to her via phone if she’s right next to me. I thought it was suspicious moments after her taking a photo of the food John texts her. She slipped up and ended up showing the conversation when she opened it and I saw she sent the photo of the chips to John.
I’m afraid she’ll always be under John’s influence, but I don’t know if it’s because she’s keeping on his good side so she doesn’t loose the kid, or if it’s because she can’t let go of something. The thing that bothers me is that she lied to my face. I don’t know how to bring it up as it seems like a small thing but at the same time a big thing.
I needed say it as I don’t have anyone to talk to either so yeah. There we go Reddit.

2023.05.28 18:33 thrilly2008 How do I help my son?

My (42f) son is 15 soon. I usually trust him with phone / going out with friends etc. I don’t usually have any issues with him and I hug him at least once a day. However, I know there’s a lot of cyber bullying going on in his school and when he left his phone home to charge I had a quick check to make sure he wasn’t a target ( or a bully). I saw no evidence of either but I saw a new msg where he says he cries, hates the way he looks and his friend suggested he cuts back on smoking and vaping to maybe improve his mood (no clue he did either). Now I don’t know what to do with this info. I want to help him but to come straight out with it will maybe prevent him from texting friends about it in the future. Any ideas on how I should proceed? Thanks x

2023.05.28 18:33 bdawg923 Is there a list of fun random things to do in TotK that don't necessarily relate to the main story?

For example in BotW they had stuff like Eventide island, the labyrinths, tarrey town, building your own house, stuff like that. They're not necessary to complete the story but they're fun to do and give nice items.

2023.05.28 18:33 MaleficentPassion771 A rollercoaster of emotions, did I get the job?

Day 1: Applied on Linkedin for an entry-level Software engineer role, using easy Apply.
Day 2: The person who posted the job emailed me saying they liked my resume and I got selected for a "mail-to-mail" interview the next day, so I need to put aside 2 hours for this.
Day 3: The actual recruiter emails me a doc that has a few questions and says I need to answer these and return them. I have a hard deadline of 75 mins. Out of those questions, some are technical, some are behavioral, and a few are related to pay and joining date. I returned them after answering those questions.
Then, after some time I get an email from the recruiter saying they sent my answers to the hiring team, and they'll take a decision based on my answers. They want to expedite the process so I might not have any interview and directly get the offer.
After 6-7 hours, I got an email congratulating me that I got selected and I'll get a formal offer letter the next day
~~I was very skeptical of the entire process and felt something is wrong~~
Day 4: I got the formal offer letter with the pay rate being the lowest value I quoted in my range. Then, I got a call from a guy from the company saying, "we have sent the letter please go through it and get back to us"
I asked the guy 3 things "1. Can I talk with some technical manager to understand more about the role, and my responsibilities" To which he replied you can have that call after your tech setup is done which is very sketchy
"2. (I am an international student who recently graduated) My OPT start date is after a month, so can I join then?" To which he said we are ok with that date so yeah
"3. Is there any room for negotiation, given I am this this this, can you please consider the upper limit of the range I quoted" To which he said, yes we'll decide and get back to you.
After some time I got the offer letter with updated pay and joining date. I was asked to sign it that day itself, I read it thoroughly and signed it. (It doesn't have any weird clauses).
Then I got a mail from the recruiter that my check is being processed by the account team and once that's done I can use it to buy my work-from-home setup(iMac, etc etc). I received that check after some time, and I deposited it in my bank account. But it is still on hold.
I sent them the confirmation number of the deposit, they were like we can see a hold so can you deposit to some other financial institution you bank with. I said, let it take its time, anyway I'll be joining a month later, then they were ok with it. Day 5: I get an email from the recruiter saying, some of my equipment is being delivered today so I need to pay some amount out of my pocket as the check is still on hold. I replied, I have an ample amount of time before I join so can you reschedule the delivery, I’ll wait until the check is processed. Also, I am just out of college, I cannot afford that kind of payment ~~Ghosted no reply~~ I tried to call the guy who called me the other day, but still no response. ~~I was convinced that I got scammed, and it was completely fake~~ Until that evening when the guy actually called me and said I understand your situation, is there any way for me to send that amount so that you can take the delivery? I again said the guy the same thing, that I am joining a month later, so why the hurry, then he was like “Yeah!! I will reschedule the delivery for next week.” ~~I am still very skeptical about this whole thing~~
I will wait until next Wednesday and think of reporting them

2023.05.28 18:33 OriginalMcNasty9er Today is my 1 month of sobriety

As stated in the title, today is my 1 month of sobriety and I will be receiving a chip for it tonight at my home club. This is the first time I’ve gone a month without alcohol in over 16 years. My parents are going to attend tonight to show support and how proud they are, but I don’t know what to say once I receive the chip.. I know I want to say something along the lines of-“introduction and I’m an alcoholic. The only way I achieved this was by completely letting go and giving God control; through his strength that He has provided. He deserves all the glory and I’d also like to thank everyone in these rooms (and Reddit) for helping to keep me sober. 1 day at a time.” Is there anything I should add or say less? Thank everyone! Have a great day!

Moving home next week and want to pick up a BBQ / electrify grill asap - anything you’re using that you recommend? When I was last living in Ireland we had this tepanyaki griddle that was unreal but open to any ideas! Budget wise willing to throw a few beans into it if it’ll last, ideally something we could bring in the car but not a must.

2023.05.28 18:32 bill_e_midnight The victories worth celebrating

My last post
I’ve been meaning to write this for a while and life got in the way. So it’s a little longer than I would like. To anyone who reads the whole thing, thank you.
For those who prefer a TL;DR: My progress has been so fucking good. I completed a 4.2-mile race I’ve wanted to do since I was in college. I spent a week in Disneyworld for the first time ever and did multiple open to closing days without feeling like I wanted to die. I am on track for my goal of being under 300 pounds before my 30th birthday and take my first discovery flight on that day to begin training to get my pilot’s license.
I feel so fucking good.
Now onto the full post.
I never thought I’d write something like this.
When I was in college, my mother passed away unexpectedly. It was, as one might expect, extremely difficult and something I was nowhere close to being prepared for.
My mom was a spectacular woman in many ways but what I always admired her most for was not putting up with any bullshit people tried to give her. It was likely her upbringing in Jersey City, in the shadow of the skyscrapers of Manhattan, that fostered that.
When she passed, my immediate feeling was numbness. After returning back to school following all the business that had to be done at home, the feeling remained for a long time.
I remember not long after she passed, I was given my first internship. Since completing an internship was required for graduation from my program, it was something I had been long stressing about and venting to my mom about. So even after hearing the news I couldn’t celebrate.
Why should I if I couldn’t call my mom to tell her?
Suffice to say, my mental health after she passed was not good. I spent a lot of time by myself and when I was with friends I was not a pleasant person to be around.
It was around this time I had the idea of running a race that is organized by a foundation affiliated with my alma mater. I could not tell you how overweight I was at the time exactly but it was definitely well over 400 pounds so I knew I would have to do serious preparation to do it.
But I don’t think it will come as a shock that I couldn’t do it. It was a goal that simply was far too great for my current mental state and I gave up on the idea not long after beginning a moderate gym routine which I also abandoned to return to my room where I’d spend my time in much less productive ways.
It’s been over 8 years now since my mom passed.
If anyone has ever experienced loss in that way you’ll know that it never really leaves you. It certainly gets easier to live with but the thought of your loved one not being there for you is always there in your mind no matter what.
I have done plenty of growing in that time. I’ve had a few jobs. I started my first real relationship with a woman who I know beyond a shadow of a doubt loves me for who I really am and who I love in return. I have, what I honestly believe and will argue to the end of time, is the best group of friends anyone could ever ask for.
But there was always still this feeling that I was missing something.
If you’ve read my other posts here you’ll know I began losing weight back in September but really began taking it seriously around February. It was around then I decided to commit to walking more and more every day and being more mindful of what I eat every single day. During one of those walks it hit me that the same race from college was coming up in a couple months and they always have local versions of the race organized by the alumni associations.
I decided then to sign up.
I wasn’t planning on even jogging it. I was planning on walking the entirety of the race just so I could say that I could. But when I was on the sign up page it included a training schedule for people who wanted to prepare for jogging. The race is slightly over a 5K so the training plan is a somewhat modified version of “Couch to 5K” programs.
I realized that if I started the program that week that it would line up perfectly with race day. To make this as short as possible I’ll just say I was shocked at my progress in the program. There was only one training session I wasn’t able to complete. I felt great.
Mind you I was not jogging very fast, and still don’t go very fast on my jogs. Before the start of the race I had the goal of finishing in an hour and 15 minutes.
The run was not easy. Even with all the training I’m still carrying so much extra body weight that it is still very difficult. But I had so many of my fellow runners giving me signs of encouragement along the course I felt truly phenomenal.
I crossed the finish line in under an hour and hugged my girlfriend and cried. Her and my friends had come down from Los Angeles and made signs and all made t-shirts spelling out my name. Typing it now is making me cry again.
Race day was April 15, 2023 and I weighed in at 353.8 pounds.
Today is May 27, 2023 and this morning I weighed in at 332.3 pounds.
As of posting I am officially down 90.6 pounds since last September.
In the time between I got the chance to spend a week in Orlando visiting Disneyworld and one day at Universal Studios. It was the only week since I began training that I did no jogging but, in my humble opinion, I think I made up for it with the amount of walking.
Even on the “off” day I took from the parks I spent most of it walking all around Disney Springs and the resorts exploring. On the first night we stayed past close to ride Space Mountain and I felt incredible.
I love theme parks but for context, in the past I rarely if ever stayed to close because my body simply wouldn’t let me do it. We stayed to close multiple nights during the trip and I never really felt that bad.
I came back from the trip essentially at the same weight I left it despite having some poor options for food in the parks (literally the first thing I ate in the Magic Kingdom was a hot dog with electric green relish). The amount of movement during the trip was able to offset it thank goodness.
Upon return, I’ve tried to keep the jogging going although there have been one or two nights where I skipped it but even on those nights I went for my long walk. I’ve continued being mindful of what I’m eating while not feeling like I am missing out on anything at all.
Did you know you can get a power bowl from Taco Bell that tastes like all their other items but you can make it so it’s only like 450 calories for like a good amount of food? I just got that last night for dinner and while it’s not something I get regularly it feels like cheating.
Going to Orlando was a good reminder of one of the goals I have. For those like me who are big and also love theme parks, you’ll know that Universal is not a very accessible park. I can go on my soapbox but I’ll just say I think a lot of times it’s just out of sheer lack of consideration.
Despite my progress there were still several rides I couldn’t do. And even though I didn’t need a seat belt extender for an airplane I did need one for the Jimmy Fallon ride, but whatever.
But one of my goals from the beginning has been being able to go on thrill rides like those without worrying about fitting in the seats. I fully believe that goal will be achieved.
The other two goals I’ve had also are well within my reach. Firstly, I wanted to be under 300 pounds by my 30th birthday in November. At my current rate, I should be well under it by then.
I also have a goal of taking a discovery flight on my birthday as the first step to getting my pilot’s license. I’ll need to start calling flight schools to see if they have specified weight limits but I feel good about the possibility of it happening.
I still have a long way to go but there have been so many little victories as well. I recently have finally started seeing a difference in progress photos I take. There is a shirt I’ve had in the bottom of a drawer I wore maybe twice because it was too snug and I put it on recently and it was actually loose.
I feel really, really good. I feel like the things I’m doing continue to be sustainable. And I feel like I can do anything.
And I also feel like anyone reading this can do this too. Be consistent, don’t let one day define the story. It’s a long road but it can be filled with wonderful moments worthy of celebration.

Advice please
Fairly new home owner. Cleaning basement yesterday and I found some water on the floor and discovered this leak, it appears to be in that joint (T-intersection).
I put a cup under it last night. In about 18 hours I have about an inch of water in a solo cup. If this is a repair I can do, I would like to, but I don’t want to put a bandaid on a bullet hole if it’s gonna screw me down the road.
Please advise.

2023.05.28 18:32 psychedduck Some advice on Rhode Island and Mopeds.

Hello moped, I come to you in a time of great need. I'm looking for some advice on finding a new moped community. The girlfriend and I are up and moving to H. P. Lovecraft's city in the not-so-distant future. I saw on Moped Army that once there was a group there called the Metal Ponies, but that they've since disbanded. I'm wondering if any other two-stroke moped riders are in Rhode Island. I had a lot of help from Adam at Pike Powder coating in Boston, and it looks like there aren't any shops like that in Providence. One thing too that makes me nervous, is that it looks like Rhode Island requires mopeds to be inspected. My Maxi has been modded to be 65cc and tops out at around 43 mph right now. Wondering if that might be a problem with bringing it over from Mass. Thank you in advance for your wisdom.

2023.05.28 18:32 Fickle-Entertainer84 My First Experience

This story is a little hard to talk about, I've talked about it once but didn't wanna get into it much but thought maybe I should start from the beginning with these 2 orbs. I was only about 11 years old at the time, I had lived down the street from 2 other kids around the same age. I had been to their house many times before and had never experienced something so vivid. But either way I'm about 11 years old and the season outside was fall, I ran down the street to see if me and my friends would be able to hang out. I reach their home and knock on the door, their parents answer and proceed to let me inside. Now for everyone wondering what the set up to this looked like I'll do my best to keep the description but this was over 10 years ago and their house was honestly a disaster. So as I entered the door I'd step into the kitchen, as I stepped through I could smell something burning, it was strong smelling never smelling it before it hit me strong. Not knowing I figured I'd just ask one of my friends, but I stopped before reaching their living room because above their kitchen table I was seeing 2 orbs circling around each. Almost as if they were in fight for control of the house or just constantly in motion but you could see them vividly as they spun around in circles at each other. I couldn't help but stare in amazement from never seeing something so interesting. So I turn through this sheet they have in the doorway of their home into the living room. Sitting on the couch were both my friends playing Halo on the Xbox. I sat near them on the couch and asked them what had been burning and they told me sage, at that time I had no idea what it was but the smell was growing on me but years later my future friend would actually tell me what sage is used for. So after a few mins of watching them play I asked what with the weird light in the kitchen? 1 is black and 1 is white, I'm trying my best to describe what I saw to them as I came inside. They look at each other and a friend says to me that it actually isn't the first time this has happened. As we are all talking about the orbs somehow they made their way through the sheet in the doorway to the living room from the kitchen. But at that point it didn't seem like they were seeing it or letting it bother them but I kept my eyes on them until it got late and I was already given permission to stay there that night. As I began to head towards the bedroom which was back through the kitchen I accidentally ran through the orbs, nothing happened at first. But about 5 mins after walking through the kitchen into my friends room I went to turn on their tv. As I went to turn it on I heard this loud snarling then bark in my ear, I turned around and my friends were still on the bed. I asked if they heard that dog bark and they responded what dog? I said come on y'all didn't hear a dog just now, like you guys didn't just bark in my ear? Again they responded but confused no we don't even own an animal, also I already knew since that wasn't my first time there but I just really needed to know. After the first bark about an hour went by before I would hear it again snarling and barking at me that night. This would happen about 3 times that night. After that night my thoughts on the paranormal have forever been open and I'm curious to know more. But that was my first experience into the paranormal. Question how would someone go about documenting these paranormal events but with little to no budget? I want to try and debunk this small ash that seems to follow me for the past 5 years and now my girlfriend is starting to see it. Any ideas from anyone?

2023.05.28 18:32 ThrowAwayHolidayFail How much longer should I (25f) keep waiting for my depressive partner (28m) to improve? I feel like my life is on pause.

TL;DR: My fiance is in a difficult situation with his job, but he doesn't take any steps to change the situation sustainably. He burdens me with a lot of emotional load caused by this and it is going on for a while now. I start to wonder, if I'm wasting my time waiting for his improvement and if it may be better to end it soon.
Hey y'all! This is my first post ever on reddit. I hope, I do follow all the rules :) (and sorry for the length. I didn't know how it shorten the story)
My fiance (m28) and I (f25) reached a point at which I wonder, if our relationship even lasts. We met 5 years ago and started out as aquaintances. We did so much together, travelled a lot, did all kind of fun activities and it was just great. We hit it off so good and about 3,5 years ago we started dating, moved in together and got engaged. It was great, we never had a major fight about anything, we share the same morals and got along with chores etc as well. We still did some great trips, however about half a year ago, this all changed.
My partner has always had some issues since I know him and I start to wonder, if they will ever get better (or if I should even expect improvement). He is in psycho therapy for almost two years now for his depression and they work on a holistic solution (addressing other issues, taking a close look on the family dynamic in his childhood and this kind of stuff). I think, that the therapy did help him, but I start to doubt, that the therapy will do enough for him. (It feels so bad and wrong to say it that way.)
Since I know him, he does always struggle with his job. He is a hard-working and skilled, experienced and educated, but only in crafts. He did not go to college after high school, because this was his wish (and I think, that this is completely fine). However, he hasn't found a job yet that he really likes, that's why he changes his job every few years. He doesn't put a lot of effort into finding a good job though. I tried to talk to him about the importance of a propper application, but he doesn't really see a point in them anyways and hates writing them. His plan is to write them thoughtless and get some jobs that may promise to be right and then find another job this exact way, if the previous one wasn't the perfect job for him. He won't go to school neither, which would allow him to do other jobs as well, because he doesn't like school. Honestly, I kept quiet until now, because I had hoped, that he would eventually find a good job and this problem would've solved itself. Hoewever, this did never happen.
The other issue, that affects me, is his inability to overcome his own bad emotions without pulling everyone around him down too. He doesn't want to do this and he feels really bad about it, however it still happens and I can't see improvement. It basically means, that no one else can enoy themselves, if he isn't in a good mood too. He doesn't provoke fights or is mean, but one can really kill the vibes, if they sit in a corner and go with "Why do you even bother asking me?!" or "*shrug * Whatever, I don't care". I am certain, that he does not do it intentionally, as I have seen this to be normalized behaviour within his family. He doesn't know how to regulate himself. I did try to communicate this with him, but he only understands it as "Suck it up and shut it up". Which is not true. I believe, that one can communicate negative emotions and yet still don't burden there loved ones with a constant bad mood. And he currently is always in a bad mood due to his job situation and I'm walking on eggshells to not get one of these snappy responses for any "stupid" or "pointless" question. I try to cheer him up and try to plan things, to distract him, encourage him to apply for another job etc. I don't know how to handle this anymore.
Today we came home early from the only vacation we could have together this year, because we can not take other vacation days at the same time together. We only did half the road trip, then on the ride to our next destination today he missed our exit (I even pointed it out to him previously, I really don't know, why he simply didn't took it or respond to me at all) and we accidentally went on the highway and had to drive quiet a few miles in the wrong direction. He said, that "This was it", took the next turn possible and we went on our way home (but he did miss a few exits too, which caused us to drive quite some miles extra, I didn't dare to ask for his reasoning, because the mood was icy). I offered to drive, since I do not want to spend the day on the road going wrong ways only and just accepted that he wasn't in the mood for holiday (this was not the first time, we quit something I really appreciated and wanted, because he wasn't feeling it. I did agree to adjusting the plans to accommodate him though). He finally agreed, and spent maybe half an hour looking for jobs, while I was driving. He finally threw his phone down and announced, that there were no good jobs available at all.
I feel so rejected by this, because right now, he is chilling with his friends in the garden doing a BBQ (maybe he's talking with them about his problems, making this time anyhow "productive" idk), instead of using our remaining holiday time to improve his situation. I'm torn. On one hand, I feel like, he should put his big boy pants on and finally write some neat applications and really put some effort into finding a job (or even going through some extra education to qualify for better jobs), even though, he may not like the process of doing this tasks. I did encounter tasks, I really did not enjoy, too to reach a higher goal. However on the other hand, I don't know what's going on inside of him. After all, he has depression and I don't. I will never experience the feeling, so I am hesitant to judge. It seems that he is not following his weird job plan that avoids writing applications and further schooling out of nowhere. He surely doesn't do this for fun. He is suffering a lot too right now and I doubt, he would maneuver us into this situation, if there was an easy way out. So I feel like, pressuring him into it, may not help anything and would only increase the stress for both of us.
On the quiet remaining ride back home today, I did question myself, how much longer I should keep waiting for him to finally get better. I think, that mid- to late-twenties is a good age to finally get your stuff figured out. When else will he? I feel like I waste my precious time by constantly adjusting and lowering my expectations according to his mood. I don't want this life for sure, but I really do love him (or at least, how he was at the beginning). I am hesitant to approach him or to even tell him, that he should figure his life out or else I'd leave. I think, that this pressure would block him only more so and won't produce anything benefital. I can't bring it over my heart to present him an ultimatum like this, because he might currently be going through something I don't understand.
Please, don't get me wrong. My partner may sound rude and reckless in this prescription, this is only because I'm describing problematic situations. He generally is kind and he acknowledges most of his wrong-doing. When we got home today, he apologized for ruining the trip and said, that I was so kind to him the whole ride back even though he acted that way.
I would love to hear your insight on how I could handle this and how I could help him efficiently. I know for sure, that I will be planning my next few trips without him. However, I don't know, how to gently tell him how I feel and I don't know, what I should tell him, which improvements or changes I would be expecting in the near future.
