2020.10.24 22:30 SpookyLisa Architecture School in COVID times?

My kid, a sophomore at UofO, wants to apply to the architecture school, but I'm concerned that the program will be scaled back due to covid and enrollment declines. Does anyone know how the architecture school is faring, and what the prospects are? There are a lot of less expensive ways to learn architecture via YouTube videos and Zoom meetings, iykwim. Can anyone in the program tell me how they're doing studio work right now? Is it all remote?

2020.10.24 22:16 artsyfartsy666 (Seeking advice) Looking to buy a machine, choosing between options

I live in a small city without any riso printers (closest is 3 hrs away) and am considering purchasing my own machine. I've got a deadline for a publication for Fall 2021 for a chunky art book (80 pages), and with COVID I don't think I'll be able to travel for print studio access consistently. Hence, the cost of a machine is looking better than a hefty print run shipped to me from another part of the country.
I worked with a RZ990U quite a bit in school, and I found a RZ220UI with drums and colours in good condition. I've also found an RC-6300 for half the price of the RZ220UI, but I'd be going through a reseller who doesn't know anything about the machine. The RC also comes with drums and colours and is listed as in good condition.
My gut instinct is to go with the RZ, thinking that parts and accessories will be easier to come by than with the older model. What do you think?

2020.10.24 21:48 Nyarko-San Play only one game but have some weird tasks, need advice!

Hello, I want to say first off that I am really not sure about about anything when it comes to computers, having never built one before and having used laptops only for a very long time.
I am currently in grad school and am looking to upgrade my system from a Dell Inspiron laptop. My work involves some pretty intensive usage of Photoshop and Clip Studio Paint, where I have to extract and heavily alter high-quality scans of historical documents, and my poor laptop basically cooks itself trying to perform said tasks. I also play a lot of League of Legends, and currently get around 100 FPS dropping as low as 30 in some situations with all settings as low as they possibly go at 1080p. Outside of that, I don't do much besides chat on Discord and watch/stream stuff. I might be interested in giving livestreaming a shot in the future. Another concern is that given my current setup with scanners, printers, a drawing tablet, etc. I am using 10-plus USB ports at a given time, which I think is further hurting my laptop.
Current specs are 8GB of RAM, a GTX 1060, and a Core i7 7th gen processor.
Given the tasks I want to do, I don't think I'd need a top ofnthe line model, especially as I have no aspirations of gaming above 1080p. I know that asking for all the parts I'd need is untenable, but could you all steer me in a direction regarding the "bandwidth" of parts that I should be looking for? Like what would the overall cost of a rig that can do what I want it to come to?
Thanks in advance!

2020.10.24 21:40 TrickyInvestment Making ur day brighter :) hope all of y’all happy 😊 :)

I’m just your average guy livin a basic life. I wanted to write this for my B day!
Just to clear up. I’m doing fine with life. My mental health from loneliness is getting better day by day. I still feel lonely time to time tho. Quarantine sucks dude.
I wish you all the best. Take care of your mental health, body health etc. Be ur self but without being rude. Stay strong, YOU GOT THIS. Don’t stress to much about homework, and also to those who are reading this without doing homework, please do ur homework :it helps a lot using death note on homework: :) I want u to be proud of what you have become in quarantine since the beginning of your improvement!
Those who are struggling stay strong Kay! Wish you love ❤️.
This song made my lonely moments turn into dust a bit. Sorry for rambling but... I remember when I was in elementary school, I felt lonely without any friends. I felt like I had no one. There was this person who said “Wanna go play a game?” I replied “no” . I wish I could have said yes to this day 😭. One time I was catching crickets in the grass and my teacher was like “stop catching crickets” I was like -In my mind- “bish I wanna catch crickets not hang out with people.” I’m an introvert btw.
Many years later in middle school... Wow I realized I’m super lonely 😭😭. My awkwardness with talking was like giving a speech at a ELA speech kinda.
High school Now - I still felt lonely in the beginning of my first year in freshman. I eventually found great friends in choir who made me feel loved! I love them too! I didn’t hang out with them outside of school which kinda made me feel lonely.
Second Year - I found more more friends who I related to :) There was this guy who was wholesome, he spread joy when no one else did in some ways. He was and is relatable.
I met a cute guy who became my friend. We related so much! It was like we were best friends for a decade ☺️. I’m so glad to be friends with him.
Quarantine - I feel a bit lonely, but what keeps all of us strong is by staying happy. We will get through it. I know we can!
Try and talk to make a club for online school. It is possible for that to happen. Find friends who u think are cool and say “hey! Female/dude/Non-binary/etc Wanna make a friendship? I feel lonely ... etc.
This beautiful music peace perfectly captured the feeling of being lonely and how tough it can be. The pain of loneliness is like drinking soda/eating cake/ while eating pizza. That’s kinda how bad I felt in school. It’s hard trying to talk to people in lunch because of how hard is it to find someone who cares about the persons feelings and emotions.
Studio Ghibli Spirited Away
I hated being alone in the bus for years. Thankfully I sat with a friend who is cool in high school.
If my school asked to talk about emotions with paragraphs I would write this.
And in conclusion I hope y’all find amazing friend who want to care for your emotional well being, understanding in conversations.
Artists I like to share with you!
Taylor Swift - Her old songs make me so emotional omg 😭
Rihanna - don’t forget this queen! A cool song would be Dancing in the dark.
Shawn Mendes - cool dude Song recommendations- Go listen to his old albums!
Phillip Phillips - his two songs made me remember amazing memories.
The Neighborhood- I only heard one song and was hooked to it. Sweater Weather is pretty good.
Arctic Monkeys - I heard they are pretty good.
Troye Sivan - I love his songs. I think For him is a good song recommendation. It’s so heavenly nice.
Twenty One Pilots - First listen to Stressed out, It’s pretty relatable.
Bridget Mendler - Ready or not, Hurricane are songs that I’d recommend.
Owl City - Good Time, Fireflies
Carly Rae Jepson - I only listened to Call me maybe ☺️. Her other new songs are eh.
Paramore - Ain’t it fun. I might get into the songs.
Alessia Cara - Literally every song she makes is a bomb! Too good. Just meh opinion.
Ghost - my cute friend recommended this cool band. It’s pretty good.
Coldplay - I love the song yellow and fix u are amazing.
That’s all I got so far. Can’t put more cuz it’s too much lol.
I’d like to end of this with these two songs Gone, Gone, Gone

2020.10.24 21:33 NineteenSkylines "The Bronx Brothers" - 2049

[December 2049]
In a back alley in the town of Berrymoor, four kids and a robotic car are gathered around a radio.
Rhythm Street - Celebrating 75 years of hip-hop and 100 years of rapped music, from the Saturday Night Fish-Fry to New Music Sunday - is pleased to start tonight's Bronx Brothers Hip-Hop History Hour.
The group gathered more tightly around the radio, playing from inside an unfinished garage with the door open.
Hello, all you cool cats and kittens, moon-dogs and hell-hounds, boys, bots, and girls. Tonight is the 25th anniversary of the Bronx Brothers Hip-Hop History Hour. When we started broadcasting in the early 2020s, we were concerned that old-school New York hip-hop would be forever lost to the mists of time; artists like Kurtis Blow, Kool Moe Dee, Melle Mel, the Incredible Bongo Band, and Doug E. Fresh were getting less airplay among the kids on Spotify than the Big Bopper, Roy Brown, or even cough cough Pat Boone. By 2024, less than 5% of individuals under the age of 30 could name the five elements of authentic South Bronx hip-hop. From our first studio in a rented basement on Amadou Diallo Place in the borough that birthed Kool Herc and KRS-One to our current time slot on Rhythm Street, we would like to introduce Beatbox Bronx, Brother Rapp Bronx, and Scratch Bronx - The Bronx Brothers!
"So, you like rap too in Berrymoor?" asked Sofiane, 13. "I only been here for a year."
The car's sound system lit up. "Yes. While Johnny B. Goode is our declaration of independence, Chuck Berry's 1950s recordings are our Federalist Papers, and the boundary breaking of old-time rock 'n' roll and New Orleans jazz are our constitution, we are open to other styles. Old Chuck did rap - "Too Much Monkey Business" - and he did use electronic effects like pitch and speed shifting and overdubbing, so basically any modern genre is fair game if it his done in his spirit. As Rolling Stone said in 1990, the best of Fifties rock & roll may have promised a utopia that was not to be, but as long as the music survives, the dream will live on.."

2020.10.24 20:39 ibrown39 Make best of my time, stay motivated, and go about my goals before I graduate?

Me: I am 23yr student in CO. Got my first degree in Economics in 2018. Started my CompSci degree in Aug’19 and will finish my courses minus my capstone for my CompSci degree in Feb’21 and capstone April’21.
Technical: We use Java, C++ and I’ve taken classes with MySQL and Python. We will do some mobile development using Android Studio which I’m looking forward to. That said, I like some components to Fullstack, I’m starting to think I’d like to really strengthen my C/C++ skills and do something with that.
I’m mostly interested in making programs that work well and run fast on most, especially low spec, enterprise software (having had suffered with terribly optimized software). That and mobile apps. A project idea I have is making a scheduling or labor budget program that I can use to showcase multiple skills. I haven’t start that yet since I keep going back and forth between what to do and get stressed out I’m wasting time on whatever I’m doing/should be doing something else.
My goal: Be able to realistically apply for a job by February and have a good portfolio by April.
Currently: So here’s the deal. I’ve got a pretty nice work situation as sub for a private school. During the time I work on my projects and am trying to make the best of my time so I can achieve my goals. 1hr20min from 8am to 2:20pm. After that I go to the gym, play a game with friends from 6-7pm (before I was done at 12:40 with work and would be at gym from 1-4/5pm and so now I may go to gym after the game). I also do coding at the gym as it helps me concentrate. I can do much at home too.
I’m thinking about getting all of my school projects for my current enrolled classes so that I can focus on other stuff. I have a premium Leetcode account.
What should I be doing? What would be the most productive plan? I’ve been getting literally tired and bored lately when I try to work on something during work.
Edit: I’ll add I’m also much more of a crunchepower session sort of guy. I like working/being very focused on a task for a given amount time rather drawing it out.

2020.10.24 19:12 thrownoutoct23 I (M23) am horrible torn about my current relationship with my ill girlfriend (F22), and I feel like I am totally to blame.

My girlfriend, Jamie (for this) is a lovely, hilarious, down to earth human, and I love her deeply. We have been dating for two years and some change now, and are living together fairly successfully.
Sharing an apartment came about after she moved in with a friend, who, after a few weeks, kicked her out to accommodate her new girlfriend. Prior to that, she lived with her mom, who moved to a studio apartment after Jamie left for college. Without a place to go, a friend of ours looking to get an apartment closer to school and work looked with us and found a place.
In terms of living together we have virtually no problems, it has worked out as well as it could have, and we all get along great as roommates.
She had a few issues with her depression and anxiety, as well as a lack of self esteem. Having dealt with some severe mental health issues, I had no problem walking her through the steps to get proper care, and be as supportive as I could.
The trouble comes in when what we now know to be bipolar disorder started to manifest in her. She started to have episodes where she would black out, and yell, gaslight, and argue for hours at me about different subject that made her feel self conscious. Some of them were not unfounded. I had an issue with using porn and masturbation as a coping mechanism. It was bad for both of us, and I learned to get past it with therapy, and exercise as a replacement.
This didn't stop her from having episodes and in the winter time, they got much, much worse, she would often cry herself to sleep, stay home from work, and have episodes that last all night.
Now, these episodes were made worse because I am not great at conflict, and will just kind of shut down. I have been getting better at trying to resolve things, but it really doesn't help. She, at first, was reluctant to get treatment, and still needs a push sometimes. She is getting better though, little by little.
My issue is: she becomes abusive and controlling during these episodes, and I don't know if I will ever feel like I'm not afraid of her, even when she gets this under control. I know that she'll be able to change the way they manifest, her mom had the same issue. I just do not know if I can last until she does.
She really doesn't have anywhere to go if I leave, and she is financially dependent on me, which is my fault.
I feel so stuck. I have no idea what to do, and I would feel incredibly guilty leaving her. I'm lost.
Edit 1: I guess my question is how do I leave, and what resources can I give to her to help her live?

2020.10.24 17:12 redbrickdot I need some honest help. I can’t decide which house to possibly buy.

Tldr at bottom.
There are two townhomes located close to each other. For reference, they’re different elementary schools but same middle and high school. They’re close enough that location isn’t a factor to me. And it’s just me so I don’t necessarily care about the schools other than resale and the schools are fine here.
The first one. Let’s call it the older townhome. It was built 20 years ago, has no basement (I’m in the Midwest so we have tornados), and no storage except for spare bedroom. It is a 2 bed, 2.5 bath home connected to 2 neighbors by walls, and has an older furnace, AC, and appliances. 2 car garage. It’s a bit of a fixer to get it to my standards but not bad. Like it needs new carpet because it’s original and has seen better days. The kitchen and bathrooms aren’t anything special. They work and I wouldn’t necessarily need to do anything to them. There’s no kitchen backsplash so I’d probably put something up, it has older / original appliances, and Formica counters. Think renters grade or circa late 90s early 2000s. The whole place feels to me like a rental unit but I’m thinking it feels that way to me because everything is so old. The only reason I’m considering it is because it’s so affordable. I couldn’t rent a 2 bedroom for what I’d pay for this place.
Then there is a brand new townhome that is the last of its kind to sell. It is a 3 bed, 3 full bath with a finished basement. It has a huge unfinished storage room in the basement. 2 car garage. The kitchen and bathrooms are beautiful, updated and need no work. I’d only share one wall with a neighbor and it’s pretty minimal based on how the layout is setup. This one feels like a single family home (aside from having no backyard and I’d be sharing a wall). I don’t get the sense that it’s a rental unit like I do the other one. And since it’s brand new, I don’t have to worry about things breaking right away.
Thanks to covid, I’ll work from home indefinitely. So one bedroom in either place would be the home office. Having 3 bedrooms is a nice perk.
The price difference comes out to be $500 more a month for the brand new townhome. This is calculating taxes, insurance, HOAs, and p&i at each location and putting 20% down at each location.
I’m aggressive with 401k contribution so my take home pay after taxes, health insurance, taxes, etc is $3600 a month. I have 0 debt. I don’t spend more than $1000-1200 a month on food, entertainment, living etc. (non rent expenses) I have enough saved to put 20% down at either spot and still have money for closing, moving, and an emergency fund. Plus I get a generous bonus each year in February that will be coming but I’m not including that as income. Just excited it’s coming.
Let’s say you’d live in a townhome. (I know they’re not for everyone but SFHs in this area are out of the price range.) Would you spend $1500 a month to get a brand new townhome that needs no work or $1000 a month to get a 20 year older townhome that is smaller and needs small upgrades plus potentially big ticket items? But the monthly cash flow is great on the older unit. For perspective 2-3 bed rental units start at 1300 and go up from there in my area.
Financially the decision seems easy. It’s just me so take the older one and save the difference. But this decision is hard because I’ve rented all over the country. I’ve rented in NYC where 1500 for a studio shoebox can be a steal. I’ve rented in the Midwest where 1500 is a luxury and I wouldn’t pay it for just a rental. I’m overthinking this but it’s just me so I need help to think this through. Is 1500 too much to spend?
Tldr; deciding between two townhomes. One is $1500 a month and is brand new with an extra bedroom. The other is $1000 a month, older and in an ok but needs some work condition. Take home pay after aggressive 401k, health ins, taxes, etc is $3600. 0 debt. Its just me.

2020.10.24 15:19 Excitement-Fearless Audio Production PC

What will you be doing with this PC? Be as specific as possible, and include specific games or programs you will be using.
*Audio production
What is your maximum budget before rebates/shipping/taxes?
*1000 euro
When do you plan on building/buying the PC? Note: beyond a week or two from today means any build you receive will be out of date when you want to buy.
*I am ordering the parts for a build at christmas
What, exactly, do you need included in the budget? (ToweOS/monitokeyboard/mouse/etc)
Which country (and state/province) will you be purchasing the parts in? If you're in US, do you have access to a Microcenter location?
If reusing any parts (including monitor(s)/keyboard/mouse/etc), what parts will you be reusing? Brands and models are appreciated.
Will you be overclocking? If yes, are you interested in overclocking right away, or down the line? CPU and/or GPU?
Are there any specific features or items you want/need in the build? (ex: SSD, large amount of storage or a RAID setup, CUDA or OpenCL support, etc)
Do you have any specific case preferences (Size like ITX/microATX/mid-towefull-tower, styles, colors, window or not, LED lighting, etc), or a particular color theme preference for the components?
Do you need a copy of Windows included in the budget? If you do need one included, do you have a preference?
So for my DAW I use cakewalk and to be honest I don't plan on changing its just really good and I'm only in secondary school so pro tools would be very over budget I would rather spend the money on a pc like I am doing now

2020.10.24 14:21 fernbrook123 Katana Hum

Ok first time poster , My name is Gary and I live in Holland Landing Ontario , Canada . Why do I feel like I'm in gr 2 first day of school introductions? lol Anyway my question is why does the Katana 50 hum so much ... I've looked high and low with the answer from 60 cycle hm to emi etc etc . I tried it all , no success .
So , i took it back to the local music store where i purchased it and well the guy said " its normal" on any setting other than clean and .5 watts!!! I tried another new one in the store same thing . I can believe how this can be considered normal. Anyway i brought it back home , glad i didn't buy a xhum for 120 , a new guitar cable for 20-80 dolllars , had an electrician re wire my house etc etc lol .
I love the amp and tone studio ( yes ive used the noise suppressor) like i said tried it all. and the fact a new one at the store was just as bad makes me with i could have gotten a refund . Anyway thanks for the rant .. Look forward to feedback positive or negative ...... Stay safe !!! Gary

Hi I'm wondering if anyone can give me any perspective. I started dating my now ex-boyfriend 7 months ago. We were both very taken with each other and quickly moved in together. Honestly the last 7 months have been incredibly important and wonderful. He and I have slowly come to know each other better and helped each other in so many ways. Even though he lives together are I wanted him to understand that I thought it was important we took certain things slow in terms of commitment for the long term. He was in a difficult situation when we met and I was able to give him a place to live which honestly just made me happy because I have not always been able to support myself, so it made me happy to be able to help someone that I was coming to love get on their feet and pay it forward I guess. We have so much in common. Most of what we do together is talk and help each other figure out how to best accomplish our own personal goals side by side in a partnership that neither of us expected to come out of nowhere the way it did. He has bipolar disorder but when I met him had finally found a combination of medications that he felt were stabilizing. I have OCD and I struggle with that but I have a therapist and have been doing very well.
My ex-boyfriend treated me really well emotionally and was working hard to get on his feet. The reality is that I was financially supporting both of us until this month when he finally was able to save enough money to pay his half of the rent.
He was always so loving. He really wanted me to know that I am beautiful, and talented, and capable of accomplishing anything. That's all I ever wanted for him as well and together it really seemed like we had a great opportunity to grow beside each other. we were partners and we were monogamous. He knew that my OCD often centers around irrational fears of HIV and other things, but HIV has been a big one throughout my life. When I've had moments of irrational fear, he has comforted me. We got tested together in September. If you don't know anything about OCD, basically your mind is plagued by intrusive irrational thoughts that are difficult to discern as irrational. That's just a little bit of context.
He is a bit younger than me and I was hesitant to really make a long-term commitment because of that, but from the beginning he really urged me to let go of the idea that our age should be something that could prevent us from finding out whether or not a relationship together would really work. And I didn't want to lose the opportunity to find that out either.
He was always stable. He told me about the only major manic episode he'd ever had. It was a few years ago and it was really bad. So as a good partner I was always on the lookout for signs that something might be happening. But he was on his medication and it was going okay.
Last week was his birthday and I wanted to make the entire week special for him because he has made my life so special. I planned a little surprise for him every day and it was a gift just to be able to do that for him, and to see how happy it made him.
About 6 weeks ago or so he told me that he had stopped taking his medication. I've never dated anyone with bipolar before and I really didn't know how to deal with that other than encourage him to work with a therapist if he was going to go off of it. He told me he would but he never did. I was naive and inexperienced with this condition. I also wanted to support him in finding his own path, and because I had never seen him before he was medicated I really didn't know anything about his condition or what it looked like. I had of course done some reading but I'm no expert.
Last weekend I realized something was wrong. And at first I thought it was a manic episode, but then I realized it was something more than that. He wasn't just making impulsive choices or speaking rapidly or incoherently. He was showing signs of psychosis as far as I could tell. I started finding strange things in the apartment. Like one day I found a bottle of vegetable oil that was dirty just sitting next to my shoes I'd never seen it before and he told me he must have found it on the street or something. That day he was talking basically in metaphors and only in the abstract, it was almost impossible to communicate with him. he was leaving and entering the apartment every few minutes until I finally convinced him to stay inside. That's when I sat him down and told him that I thought we needed to talk because I felt something was really wrong and that he couldn't see it.
An outsider would have thought that he was on a lot of drugs but he wasn't. Now I was ready to deal with the unexpected mood changes that are inherent to this condition. And when he started displaying these signs of bipolar psychosis I was scared for him, but not for our relationship. By this point I knew that I loved him and it didn't make a difference to me if he had an illness, it just needed to be managed. I suddenly realized how serious it was that he had gone off his medication and so I told him that he needed to let me help him. So I asked him for his phone so I could get his doctor's number.
He gave me the phone and opened it and there was a message from someone else that he had been sleeping with. I had read plenty about not having serious conversations during a manic episode and had been avoiding having any even when he had said some hurtful stuff earlier. When I saw the message he kind of just gave me the phone and let me look at it. Then he opened up a dating app and showed me all of the messages.
Just a week prior I had a scare during sex with him because we always wear condoms but there was an issue with one and he quickly reassured me not to worry because we had both been tested for HIV together and he hadn't been with anyone since me, of course. I have OCD, that's why it was so frightening to me. I never thought that he had anything I just have a chronic anxiety disordered that makes it difficult for me to think rationally.
When he gave me the phone I just stared in disbelief for a second and then I asked him how many people he had slept with since I met him. At first he said three. I was shocked. I didn't think he actually had slept with anyone when I asked that question. Within a few minutes he confessed that it was actually a lot more something more than a dozen but he doesn't know how many.
I know that hypersexuality can be a symptom of mania. And perhaps if the infidelity had occurred during the only manic episode he'd had since I met him, I could understand it better. But I looked through the phone and I talked to him and it was revealed that he had been sleeping with lots of people our entire relationship. When I asked him if he wore a condom he said only sometimes. so he had been knowingly putting me at risk all of that time.
I found messages from the week before when he was probably already a little manic and I just didn't notice. And then I found messages from every month leading back to the month we met. Before he stopped taking his medication. When he was lucid and stable.
I'm struggling to understand what's going on. I know that some men cheat and I don't know how they can do it but I know that they can. I ended the relationship immediately. I made him contact his family to come pick him up in the morning and move his stuff out. I would not have ever ended our relationship because of or during a manic episode otherwise. But I had just found out that I'd been lied to since I met him and he told me that the entire relationship was a lie. He told me that he had been using me for a place to live.
I know when people are manic they can say things that are cruel or maybe not true I don't know. But what is true is that he was deceiving me since we met through my own mental health issues specifically related to sex and safety, and after reading messages spanning over the last several months, I saw that he had been arranging hookups when we were together in bed. Sometimes he was finishing dinner and then he was going out to hook up with someone. I remember one specific day that he was supposedly visiting a friend from high school who had recently moved near us, and that turned out to be a lie.
At times he was telling me that of course he was feeling guilty and that he had felt guilty. But then, because he was having a period of bipolar psychosis, he would start laughing at me about it, and tell me he never really cared. He kept doing that thing where you start to cry and then you start to laugh maniacally.
he left the next day and it was definitely for the best for his mental health I mean either way he needed to get to the hospital. That's where he is now his mother told me. I guess he wants to call me but he doesn't have his phone and his mother told the nurses not to let him call me.
I'm having a hard time for obvious reasons, I didn't see this coming, but I'm also struggling to understand how or if or to what extent any of it has to do with bipolar. I imagine that any infidelity that he had after he stopped his medication was informed by that. But he was and I know I'm repeating this but I just want to make it very clear, he was lucid 95% of our relationship or more. Lying to my face, and according to the manic version of him, he was taking advantage of me because he knew that I would be easy to take advantage of.
all of that's really difficult but it's also really difficult that I've only heard any kind of explanation from his manic self. The person I know would never talk to me like that. But then at the same time the person I know was also lying to me the whole time, lying to me when he held me at night telling me how much he loved me, lying to me when my own chronic mental illness was hurting me. So I'm having a difficult time accepting that this is real even though I know it's real because I saw the messages.
I haven't talked to the lucid man that I spent the last 7 months with since before this all came to light. I guess I'm wondering if anyone knows whether or not it's possible that someone with bipolar could have been doing what he did our entire relationship due to his bipolar, even though he was completely stable, lucid, and apparently fine.
I'm asking that because I'm struggling to understand this still and I can't talk to him because I won't talk to him after what he's done. I'm grateful that The truth came out even if it had to happen when he was suffering during a manic episode. I don't know if he would have ever told me if he hadn't been manic. But this is isn't the person that I know, and I don't know how I could have been so wrong about someone who I spent so much time with.
I mean we spent almost all our time together because of the pandemic. Reading to each other, talking about life, philosophy, mutual interest, I helped him build a music studio in our apartment cuz he's an artist. He finally paid rent this month because he had managed to save enough money, we just celebrated this beautiful week together, and then all of a sudden at the end of the week my life turned upside down. Everything he owned is gone from the home because I kicked him out and he's with his family now. It's traumatic. I don't understand it. And I just can't believe that this is because of his mental health disorder, I don't see how having bipolar and being stable could account for intentionally deceiving me and serial cheating and doing so in such a sinister way.
I guess I'm just looking for something of an answer because I also don't understand how the sweet tender and gentle person who I've come to love so deeply was doing that all this time if he wasn't sick. He's one of the sweetest people I've ever met and that's the first thing that people say when they meet him. This is never happened to me before so maybe I'm just naive about people and their ability to lie I don't know. I'm just struggling to understand reality. And I miss him terribly because I love him, but I respect myself and I could never forgive him. He even had people in our home.
anyway I'm just reaching out here because I'm desperate. If anyone has any guidance please let me know. And just so everyone knows I'm very sorry this is so long. Also I am in therapy and I have people who are taking care of me and helping me through this, I'm not a danger to myself so please don't worry. This has sent me into a deep state of depression and anxiety that I am struggling to not sink into but I am committed to taking care of myself through it.
Any help that you can offer me is so appreciated much love.

2020.10.24 10:41 MeInMyOwnWords Although I’m not the best music producer in the world, I love the tracks that I create. Most of my projects go unfinished, but I’m ok with that. It’s a wonderful outlet for me.

I’ve been creating music since I can remember.
My family had a keyboard when I I was little. I was put into piano and opera/vocal lessons at a young age. I remember getting my little acoustic Squier when I was 8 (it’s beside me right now!), then an electric guitar when I was 12. In middle school, I started playing trumpet and learned to read music. I got fairly good and fell in love with a bunch of different genres (and sub-genres). For reasons unknown to me, melancholic and ethereal music really resonates with me (genres like future garage, dark ambient, post-rock, etc.). It’s moody. Maybe it lets me know that I’m not alone when I’m feeling down — I’m sure everyone can relate to that.
When I was 15, my parents bought me FL Studio, a USB keyboard (M-Audio Axiom 49), and some VSTs (Virtual Studio Technology) instruments and effects. I began to collect more and more hardware and software (legally). I started making horrible dubstep, transitioned to trance, and now mainly make downtempo, sort of cinematic stuff.
Karaoke changed my life, too. I’m no Whitney, but singing is probably the “instrument” at which I’m most proficient. I’m really comfortable in saying I have an excellent voice. It’s one of the few things that I’m truly good at. (I hope that doesn’t come across as pretentious or cocky). Karaoke exponentially boosted my confidence. Now I LOVE performing and public speaking. I hated being in front of large crowd before.
Although I’m not amazing at creating music, it’s a hobby that is foundational to my life — probably because it always has been. There’s nothing I like doing more.
I’ll likely never be a famous music producer or make a career out of music, but I’m ok with that. It’s something that I love to do, and it’s helped me through some of life’s rough patches.
I think we all have a hobby/activities that make us who we are — passions that define us and that we could talk about for hours on end.
I have my dad to thank for mine. He’s a great musician who introduced me to the world of music.
Thanks Dad! Thanks for reading, too.

How viable is this? Do I value cheaper rental for my own sanity or enjoy the ability to walk to school but in a shared flat with unknown people?
Update: Seeking zip code recommendations for cheap studios, preferably 30min commute max via tube.
If shared flat, en-suite is a must.

2020.10.24 07:16 SealLionGar I think everyone should have a chance to animate with flipnote studio

I can imagine an art class using Nintendo DSi's to animate cartoons, its better than synfig, flipaclip and digicel.
I've been using flipnote studio for drawing and flipaclip for editing and coloring, holy heck, schools should teach animation this way. I feel like a pro!

2020.10.24 05:48 throwaway________111 Where do I even start

This is a really long rant post just to organize the timeline and clear my thoughts but if you want to offer advise, scroll to the end to see where the real trouble starts.
I (22F) live with my boyfriend J (26M) and my roommate K (24F). We rent a 3 bedroom 2 bath house with a little studio with a fully functional kitchenette (oven, stove, sink, cabinets), bedroom, and full bathroom attached through the garage. This is my first time living with roommates as before I had only lived by myself. J and K were roommates in their previous living situation with a third person they fell out with. They were roommates when I first met J and we started dating so I had seen K around his place and we occasionally hung out all together. I am a relatively clean person and I hate sharing the bathroom with anyone, so I agreed to move in with J and K on the condition that I get my own bedroom and bathroom. Although J and I are very much in love, I wanted to have my own space to get my schoolwork done and generally for my things.
Things started to go downhill before we even moved in. When we agreed to sign a lease together, we all went to the leasing office of the rental company we would be signing with. But when we got there K didn't have the money to pay for her portion of the deposit. As this would be her fourth lease, there was really no excuse for this being a surprise but since I didn't have time to come up with another plan two weeks before my other lease was up, I volunteered to pay for half of her portion of the deposit if J would pay for the other half. I figured since we would be living together, there would be no way to avoid paying me back eventually.
I have no idea where K is on moving day but as I am finishing cleaning out my old apartment, I get a call from J asking if I can help clean their old place. Because they had a falling out with their last roommate, he just took his stuff and dipped and didn't clean anything. K who had been using the master in their old place has cat litter all over the place, little bits of trash, and questionable leaky stains in the wall. So I spend the rest of moving day cleaning out her room for her while she does god knows what elsewhere. I never told her I did this for her and she still got her portion of the deposit on the old place back.
J moved into the master bedroom, and K wanted the studio in the back because she wanted to live alone but couldn't afford it. That leaves me with the smallest room, which I'm cool with as long as I get to park my car in the garage. We all agree on this and agree to split rent and bills three ways equally every time. I volunteered to be in charge of the bills because I'm good with numbers and I would rather have the peace of mind knowing the bills have been paid and I won't have my electricity shut off for someone else's mistake. All the utilities and internet are under my name and I request the bill with the date it's due at least two weeks in advance on venmo from both my roommates.
The first month of living together, K has an internship in Montana for a whole month. She has two cats she can't bring with her. She essentially waited until the last minute to tell J and me we're watching her cats for a whole month without pay. I've never had a pet before and idk what watching her pets entails but basically I fed them morning and night and played with them for an hour everyday and scooped their poop and made sure they had clean water while she was away. At this point I didn't even know I was being taken advantage of, as I said this is the first time I've ever had roommates.
Every time I ask K about a plan to pay me back, not to pay me back immediately for all of her portion of the deposit, but to come up with a regular plan like $100/mo or something (it was ~$350), she feels attacked and refuses to talk to me. After five months of this and several sporadic payments later, her debt to me is repaid so w/e. She never paid J back for the other half of her portion of the deposit. I should note that J was in charge of bills at their last place and K would apparently do the same thing she does now which is pay the bills when she wants, if she wants. J never told me about this issue.
K quits her job and I am trying to set her up with a new one. One of my ex coworkers works at a classy burlusque bar and makes really good money just working two nights a week. After getting her in contact with the right people and giving her some of the right clothes she needs for the job, K goes in for her first weekend and loves it. The second weekend she finishes training and comes home to complain that she's been put in a position she doesn't really want to work, and that she wants to work as a bartender instead. I tell her she needs to tell this to her boss and let her know early on before she gets stuck with this position permanently (even though it still makes bank). This goes on for two weeks, where she goes to work then comes home to complain about her position but refuses to do anything about it, and now she's stuck with it.
In December of last year J is invited by a friend from college to come visit him in NYC for nine days and I am invited as well as I had met this friend the previous year on a different trip we took together. Being the nice guy J is, he invites K sort of jokingly even though it was really going to be a romantic trip for the two of us and K immediately takes him up on the offer. I am a bit upset with J but I think it'll be fun anyways so we start making plans for the trip. J offers to use his flyer points to help us buy our tickets (he's a frequent flyer), which is really generous of him. J and K complain that I want to make plans that are too strict when in reality I just want to be able to do one or two things a day when we get there to maximize our time. The night before our flight the friend from NY calls and says his gf won't let us stay with him because K works at a burlusque bar and he has an ex that used to work at a burlusque bar. Bullshit, but I manage to book an airbnb in flatbush which is not ideal, but at least we will have somewhere to stay. Also that night K tells us she wants to work one more night before leaving so she forces J to cancel her ticket and move it to the next day. I'm pretty sure this one came out of J's pocket but I never found out.
When we get there it's nighttime and the next day is when K gets there. The first full day is lovely and that night J and K want to go to a bar. I don't drink but I go with them anyways. J and K get absolutely sh*tfaced and when we leave for some reason I let J do the navigating. 45 minutes later I decide to take over the directions and find out we've been walking the wrong way the whole time and it's freezing. J tries to do a backflip off a wall and f*cks up his ankle so he couldn't do anything else the whole trip. Wonderful. K is planning to get a tattoo while we're up there but otherwise we plan to do everything else together. There are days I want to do things and K won't even wake up until 3pm. There are days K says we can't leave to go to the MoMA even though I scored us discounted tickets because she forgot to charge her phone all night so we wait until 5pm to even leave the airbnb. There are days K has us stay in all day because she decided to take a class online over winter break and needed to do her homework. Eventually I got fed up and spent the last three days in NYC by myself, enjoying the sights, trying to stay safe on my own as a small skinny female all on my own.
On the last night in NYC K tells us she wants her brother to move in with us. We have a fourth bedroom so it wasn't really a problem except a)her brother has a record for domestic abuse b)he's an alcoholic 20y/o c)he has nothing for him where we live? We are talking about it and I'm really reluctant to let him move in because I don't know the kid. He's not getting along with their parents so he wants to move out, but this isn't the first time he's moved out. I can understand that sometimes you don't get along with your parents, I had the same issue and my relationship with my parents improved drastically after I moved out, so I'm sympathetic. She wants me to share my bathroom with him which makes sense because the spare bedroom at the other end of the hallway from me, with my bathroom in the middle. Except I specifically requested to have my own bedroom and bathroom when we decided to move in together so I'd like for that to continue to be respected. After some more discussion we call it a night. The next day when I bring it back up, K says she already invited him to come stay with us and that he would be there when we got back from NYC. Whoa. We had not even finished having that conversation and she had already given him the greenlight. At this point I decide since she already gave him the go, he could come as long as a)he comes with $500 cash to cover his first month's expenses b)he gets a job immediately (in fact I had already set him with a cushy job as a server in the fanciest restaurant in town because I worked there for several years and the manager basically told me he had a job as long as he shaved and showed up), c)he pays for a fourth of everything and if he fails to do so K would be responsible for him, d) he uses K's restroom instead of mine, and e) he would only stay for ten weeks. K agrees and we fly back home.
Kid is three days late coming. When he gets here, he doesn't have any money. He reschedules his interview at the restaurant three times before my manager gives up because he keeps not showing up even for the interviews. He's gross and keeps my plates and dishes and cups of who knows what in his room until they mold, drinks all day, uses my things and eats my food and doesn't clean out my coffee maker, pees in the empty hard liquor bottles in his room, doesn't know how to do his own laundry, and lets my kitten out of the house three times because he can't be bothered to check and make sure she doesn't leave with him. And all this time I fed the guy home cooked meals three times, tried to vouch for him at my job, and offered to drive him around to other interviews. I don't have too many rules I think, but this guy thinks I'm going to jump down his throat every time he leaves his room and has K come and tell me not to treat him like a child when he doesn't leave his room for days at a time. Inevitably he fails to pay for any of his sh*t and when I ask K for the money, she asks me why she would do that. What does it mean to take responsibility for your little brother to you then? Then she asks me why she has to pay for him when the bills have already been paid. Who do you think paid for them?? Eventually I cannot live with this disgusting manchild and I refuse to enable his alcoholism so they agree he will move into her little studio with her and not pay rent since he will be her guest. Fine by me as long as he pays for electricity/gas/watewifi. Also inevitably he continues to pay for his stay and I even tried to sit down with him to explain exactly how he was being billed, and I even offered to defer his payments for his first month with us until his last month in order to give him a chance to save up a bit to find his own place. We all sat down together several times per my request to talk about the state of the house, not peeing in bottles, why he wasn't paying his bills, etc. By week 8 he is getting on K's nerves so he dips and heads back home. On his way out he stole some of my things, just knicknacks here and there but when I told K she laughed it off and told me "he has a bad habit of doing that." I didn't find having my things stolen particularly funny but I didn't have the nerve to confront her about it back then. I haven't heard from him since.
I continue to ask K about a plan to pay me back. Let me reiterate, a plan to pay me back. I never, ever asked her to pay me back in full immediately. I simply want to talk to her about if it would be reasonable to ask for like $50/mo or something to make it regular and more convenient for her, and so I don't have to keep asking her about payments. She becomes increasingly more hostile, and even tells me I agreed to not ask her for any money until after she graduated in May (when little brother left at the end of February), and that I volunteered to pay for his things, even though there is literally no reason I would ever agree to that, and eventually she asks me what I want from her, which is funny because I’ve been saying the same thing this whole time. I just want to talk and also please pay your bills and rent on time. I’ve explained to her before that whenever she doesn’t pay her bills on time I have to pay for her portion because I absolutely need reliable internet and utilities. The other option is to leave her portion unpaid and make me look bad to future creditors as all the bills are in my name.
Eventually after months of putting off making any payments, I send her a long rant about how I’ve been trying to figure this out with her for months and clearly stating again that my expectation isn’t immediate repayment but that I just want her to commit to a plan to pay me back and she continues to ignore me. I am finally at my wit’s end and I lash out to her, saying things about how she’s a gross person (she laughed about streaks of old soda left next to her bed when she moved it, meanwhile I was horrified, tells me about mold in her fridge and does nothing about it for MONTHS) and that we can’t coexist without communication. She finally responds with some bullsh*t story about being asleep for a full week straight and I say I’m sorry that happened to you and I’m sorry I lashed out. Yet she says she doesn’t accept my apology even though I’ve been so patient with her this whole time, incredibly careful with my language and acutely aware of the pressure I put on her as to not stress her out too much. Which is fine, I understand just because someone apologizes it doesn't mean you have to accept their apology. But the fact that she refuses to apologize to me after all the abuse I've been made to endure really rubs me the wrong way. Over the course of the week this is going on, she started her laundry and let it sit in our shared laundry machine for a week, preventing J and me from doing our laundry. We asked her to move it several times and finally because I was scared it would grow mold and ruin our machine, I put it in a trash bag and left it on her doorstep. She later tells J it's the most passive aggressive thing that's ever been done to her (nothing passive about repeatedly asking someone to move their laundry, nothing really aggressive about that either.)
This is the first time I have said anything that could be considered even remotely mean to her, I was so careful as to not even make jokes at her expense. I cooked home cooked meals for her, let her borrow my brand new, nice, expensive kitchen set from my old place as it fit perfectly in her studio (she returned it to me broken without a word), let her borrow my things anytime for cooking and baking (she left them in her sink to rust and grow mold), bought her the cat tree of her dreams for Christmas, was used as her personal bank for loans, and even baked her a gorgeous graduation cake for her graduation in May. She has never done anything nice for me, maybe bought me a coke once. I listened to her complain about her job, her friend, was there for her when she broke up with her boyfriend, watcher her cats for her for a month and every time she left the house for several days without payment, got her a well paying job that paid even more than mine did, and she never bothered to learn anything about me. This was apparent when I told her this relationship was one sided and although I’m not counting all the favors I do her, when it’s this one sided all the time, I started to notice, do you even know anything about me? I even offered to forgive her of all the debt she owes me for her little brother staying with us if she will promise to pay for bills and rent on time or to at least let me know if she’s going to be late but that she still plans to pay.
This whole time J is a saint and listens to me rant and cry about this for months until I finally build up the courage to confront K about it. I am naturally a very non confrontational person but if I never said anything I would continue to be walked all over. J is still on good terms with K and has a separate conversation with her about all the issues we’ve been having. It seems to end on a productive note, with K admitting she has communication problems to J. This all goes wrong the next day.
I let her know I’m willing to talk some more about the issues and don’t hear from her until she comes into the main part of the house with a dude she’s going to f*ck that night. Dude just broke up with his longtime gf and he’s also a mutual friend of J’s. Keep in mind this is at the height of the second wave of the pandemic in June so I’m obviously alarmed. K is moving her plants into an indoor greenhouse we started to keep in the spare room. Not only did neither of them get tested, but K’s plants end up having parasites that kill all of my plants I’ve been keeping for three years in a week. I have a particularly weak immune system (I missed a whole semester of high school due to this) so I confront K about getting tested. During this time, my grandmother in Korea passes away and I’m unable to fly to say goodbye or even attend her funeral because of flying restrictions, meanwhile K invites random people who haven’t been quarantining over and drives across state lines to celebrate her dad’s birthday. After ignoring me again for several days, K finally snaps and tells me she’ll get tested. (Keep in mind that this whole time I’ve been texting her to let her respond on her own time, but days at a time is a bit much.) She also adds a bunch of horrible rude and sexist things, insulting my relationship with J, telling me I’m a gossipy immature high school girl, etc. We decide to split the house, with her staying in her studio unless she wants to do laundry, in exchange for a reduced rental rate for her. She tells me the agreement sounds fair to her, and J also is involved in this conversation and agrees. (I made the mistake of resigning the lease with her back in May despite all the problems we had been having, right before things blew up at the end of June)
Even though K usually pays at least one of the bills late every month, it's usually not more than 4 days late so it hasn't been too much of an issue. All seems well until the next bill is due and I ask K if she is going to pay it and she ignores me. I text her once a day for three days, then give here a call on her phone and am ignored. Finally, I go up to her front door and knock and wait for a response. I know she’s home because her car is here. No response. I knock again and wait. Ignored again. Finally, I knock again and just start talking. I tell her that regardless of her personal feelings towards me, she still has the responsibility to pay her bills and rent on time as we are on the lease together and she still uses wategas/electricity/wifi. She’s texting me, insulting me, telling me she got kicked out of the house even though I have proof in her text that she agreed (“sounds fair to me”), telling me she doesn’t have to take out the trash to the street because she didn’t throw anything away this week (She has taken out the trash to the curb less than ten times to date, I do it almost every week and sometimes I ask J to do it and K to do it even less), etc. In the end, I get her to agree she needs to at least let me know if she’s not going to be able to pay any of the bills.
Inevitably she misses the next bill and I ask her what her plan is. This continues for most of the next few bills and last week she was a week late on her portion of the electric bill. I finally decided if there are no consequences for her failure to pay bills, I would cut the electricity to her place. I told her I won’t be used and she’s not entitled to electricity she won’t pay for before I do this. K left the previous day and doesn’t come back home for 4 days. I think she has gone to stay with her parents across state lines because it is so uNbEaRaBlE being asked to pay bills here. I'd like to emphasize I keep my texts to remind her about bills to once a day as to not stress her out, on top of requesting her portion of the bills well in advance, often over two weeks early. Rent is of course due at the same time every month in the same amount. Since K is not talking to me at all at this point, she is screaming at J through text, telling her she’s going to call the cops, her food spoiled, we’re damaging her property, she’s entitled to electricity she refuses to even talk to me about paying, how could he throw away a lifelong friend over $50 a bitch that doesn’t even love him (she is the one throwing a tantrum over $50), etc. She even tells J her dad offered to pay for her bills and to come down and talk to me (even though she hasn’t looked me in the eye for several months now). I hold my ground and eventually she pays for the bill but in portions so she can leave me a nasty message on venmo with each payment. She tells me J has been cheating on me with her the entirety of our relationship and I need to find a new roommate, blah blah blah. I obviously don’t believe someone I can count on to lie to me over someone I’ve worked hard to build a loving and trusting relationship with for the past two years, on top of us all living together, it would basically be impossible for this to occur without me noticing so I just laugh it off.
Now it’s time for another bill to be paid, on top of there being piled up late fees from our rental company from K paying rent late almost every month this lease. K is threatening to move out, which I will firmly tell the rental company to still charge her for her portion of the rent as I will not be paying it, K already owes me a lot of money, and that she signed the lease so she is still legally bound to pay unless she pays to break the lease. I can no longer devote time and energy to this issue, I don’t want to deal with this every time it’s time to pay a bill. Which is five times a month. For some reason paying bills has become a personal issue for her and she acts entitled and has child logic. My parents have been kept up to date about the situation and when I lost my job due to the pandemic they have been supporting me since May, which I am very grateful for. My parents fear for my well-being, they think K will snap and try to hurt me or call her dad and brother down to hurt me. They even offered to pay for her portion of the bills whenever she fails to do so in order to stop this vicious cycle of me losing my mind over this mistreatment and K just ignoring me and living rent free in this house even though a)they’re already supporting me and are lower middle class b)K is not even their kid and is in fact being incredibly rude to their kid. I don’t think talking to K’s parents would do any good as when I asked her to ask her parents about paying me for her little brother’s expenses, they refused. J is a lawyer and tells me it wouldn’t be worth it to take her to court even though I have all the evidence to support everything I say here. What should I do?

2020.10.24 05:45 Holiday_Childhood_61 Can I survive medical school and residency with my mental illnesses?

Hi there internet strangers, I’m trying to figure out what I want to do with my life and could use some advice :)
Here are my accomplishments as an undergrad that make me think i might have a chance if i decided to become premed. I hate how braggy it sounds so feel free to skip to the next paragraph lol. I recently graduated from my university with a 3.9 gpa, a neuroscience major and chemistry minor, highest distinction on my thesis, and phi beta kappa. I was a founding president of a neuroscience honor society, in leadership positions for multiple other clubs, and volunteered almost every semester. So I’m hoping even though I wasn’t a premed as an undergrad I don’t think the door is totally closed?
Anyways I worked really hard as an undergrad but it certainly was at the expense of my mental health. Each semester I progressively kept getting more and more anxious and depressed until I was barely able to function. School essentially became my life. I didn’t sleep, have friends, exercise, or even practice basic personal hygiene because I was so focused on nothing but my studies. My senior year I decided to get help, I started seeing a therapist, started antidepressants, and did yoga five times a week. For the first time in my life I actually started to feel happy! I had my work life balance under control, I was sleeping, and I even started to become friends with my roommates. And then shit hit the fan.
COVID arrived, my dog died, my boyfriend moved across the country, my yoga studio closed, and I was really struggling with transitioning to my job post graduation. My mental health spiraled. I stopped sleeping, I was drinking or getting high almost every night, I gave into all of my OCD compulsions (RIP my skin as I pick when stressed), and I started being pretty reckless. Eventually I ended up breaking my arm to the point where it needed surgery and I’ve been out of work for the past three weeks and won’t be returning for some time. While I do not recommend breaking your arm lol this hiatus from responsibilities has really given me time to think. I’ve realized that my goal of going into research and getting a PhD isn’t for me anymore. I’ve only worked as a lab tech for a few months but the constant failed experiments and uncertainty surrounding research were really not great for my self esteem and definitely contributed to my poor mental health the past few months.
Another unexpected plus of breaking my arm was getting to see a more in depth look at medicine. I loved researching all the information related to my fracture and my doctors were all so kind and willing to answer my nerdy questions. I’ve always had an interest in medicine and a hobby of mine has been reading Wikipedia articles on various illnesses for quite some time, but this experience has been the first time I’ve seriously considered going into medicine for my career. I do love the idea of being able to help people when they’re sick and the information is fascinating. I really do think I could see myself one day as a pediatrician or ob/gyn or psychiatrist.
Although I do recognize how fragile happiness for me is. Living with generalized anxiety disorder and OCD make every difficult scenario that much harder. I know that medical school is no walk in the park, and residency is even worse. Is it even possible to get through them with mental illnesses? As much as I think I would enjoy being a doctor, I do need to prioritize my happiness and make sure what ever career path I decide to go down doesn’t lead to another downward spiral.
What do you all think? Have any of you gone through medical school and succeeded while struggling with mental illness? Any advice would be greatly appreciated :)
Thank you!!

2020.10.24 05:36 crazybloodmonkey how would i go about making a blank but x amount of times video?

so about 2 weeks ago i finally hit 500 subs. and i didn't know what to do for the occasion so i thought it would be funny if i made a shit post of a bunch of my school friends saying "congrats crazybloodmonkey on 500 subs" yeah no one wanted to do it but one of my friends suggested another shitpost idea i can do. which is i say my intro since it's a meme with my friends but i layer the audio up to 500 times. but i was wonder before i just do this the hard way manually layering and duplicating stuff is there an easier way to do this or no i actually have to copy my audio and maybe image that many times i use and old editing software it's called sony vegas movie studio 11 so i guess keep that in mind it might not have that easy short cut i mean it if exist.
