Sharing a College Dorm with Younger Guys

2021.12.08 02:38 cassie_hill Sharing a College Dorm with Younger Guys

Hey everyone,
I'm moving universities in the middle of the school year which is forcing me to have to share a dorm with some younger men. On one hand, I'm looking forward to it, but on the other, I'm a little intimidated. I guess I just want to hear some people's stories about living in the dorms as a trans man. Thankfully, I pass, have had top and am used to regularly packing and STPing, so I won't have to worry too much about those things.

2021.12.08 02:38 PuzzleheadedFox1 I can’t figure out what’s going on

I believe my GPU (1650ti) is not using its full potential.
When running even basic programs like Minecraft, the Task Manager states that the program is using 80-99% of the GPU, but the GPU is saying only 2-8% of its power is being used? I’ve done everything I can think of. Driver updates, I even wiped my Hard Drive and SSD incase I downloaded a virus. I cannot figure out what is going on.

2021.12.08 02:38 FAnna-Banana Midweek (sorta) reminder

Hi, my lovelies! Nana Banana here just checking in. How are things with you? Is everything okay? Remember to hydrate and practice self-care. Get yourself a treat even if it's loaded with calories, you deserve it and you've earned it. Lastly, as we get closer to the 25th of December, things tend to get hectic and stressful. People out there tend to be rude and spiteful. Especially if you work in retail, hospitality, or in foodservice. At least, that's what I've noticed here in the US. Remember, gift-giving and holiday shopping shouldn't break the bank and the spirit. Don't let the ugliness in others kill the beauty inside of you, okay? Cheer up, chin up, and keep loving yourself.
Much love to you all.
-Nana Banana

2021.12.08 02:38 PopHuntr So I pulled up to Taco Bell drive through first window

Skinny white guy I've never seen or met before (I've been to that taco bell 3 times in a year never spoken to anyone) takes my card and asks:
"You know what D&D is right?"
"I just came up with a great idea for an NPC. He's a skeleton Necromancer who has a portal to the infinite battlefield- The infinite Battlefield is a-
"Yeah I know what the infinite battlefield is" ( I don't actually ((or didn't then) but context clues plus I want my tacos so get on with it.)
"Well every day between 17:00 and 17:01 it opens and bones pour out. Perfect for a necromancer right ?" He asks in a sly tone clearly pleased with himself.
"No ? Why wouldn't he want it open for more than an hour" I asked foolishly
"A MINUTE ! It's a minute!"
"That's the stupidest thing I've ever heard in my life" I scoffed and he laughed in my face as I pulled off angrily.
I told my DM and other players hoping they'd understand the cringe but instead dm said that character is entering our universe. Our other player says it's only open for a minute because "that's all he needs"
Anyway I know you're out there reading this taco bell man.

2021.12.08 02:38 cheyenne11235 I can feel myself spiraling after yet another attempt at “moderation”

I had been doing “all right” limiting myself to just 2 for a while, and then last week I had two nights in a row where I didn’t quite black out but definitely got way too drunk and caused all sorts of problems with people I know and work with.
Last night I decided to go out, ended up blacking out, and woke up with a stranger in my bed. Who then told me I knocked on the neighbors door naked and asked to hang out. I’m so embarrassed and don’t know how to go forward from here. I don’t remember any of this and I’m sort of grateful for that because I made an absolute ass of myself.
Obviously moderation isn’t working. I have a few long stretches of sobriety, get complacent, and then give it another chance. Each of these trial moderations are worse than the last one. Even though I KNOW I can’t drink, I keep doing it. I think it’s time to revisit AA / other support groups, because it’s clear I can’t handle this on my own.
I’ve never posted in this sub, just read through it, but I thought saying something here might help keep me accountable.

2021.12.08 02:38 lkjhasdf87234 I hated UniMelb Engineering.

This was the most restrictive, exhausting, and creativity-crushing course I've ever attended, run by people with seemingly no vision for what a 21st-century education could and should be.
Our university's approach to education is horrifically outdated. In an age of instant and personalised communication, we still drip-feed subjects at a one-size-fits-all pace. The default teaching method is the hour-long monologue, like we're in Ancient Greece. We emphasise standardisation and submission to the teacher's initiative - being a good student is mostly about competing to be the fastest worker on the factory line. Mistakes and failures are treated not as a normal and necessary part of growth, but instead as a permanent stain on your intelligence. Nobody would choose to learn any other skill in this way.
So you'd think that any university course worth its fees would be trying urgently to modernise away from its archaic traditions. But in UniMelb Engineering, hardly anyone seems to have noticed. If anything, we're going backwards.
For a start, students are made to shoulder a pointlessly exhausting workload. The course handbook puts a standard Engineering subject at an optimistic 200 hours' work, which means a standard semester takes 800 hours. A standard semester is 17 weeks long, from the first day of Week 1, to the last day of exam period. So, even in the theoretical best case, where your exams finish on the very last day of semester, you'd still have to work 47-hour weeks, for four months straight, just to get by the content - this sort of commitment would earn you a windfall in overtime at your average company. If (more realistically) your semester ends halfway through exam period, then that number goes up to 52 hours per week. So, ever wondered why you always end up too swamped to do your assignments justice or to engage the content properly, no matter how you plan? Apparently, it's by design.
It might not be so bad if these hours were at least being put to effective use. But another recent teaching trend is to micromanage even your private study time, by burying you in "educational/continuous/nested/homework" assessments. I'm talking about the assessments that are intended not to measure your ability, but instead to "make sure you keep studying", to "help you learn", or to "provide feedback", collectively worth too much of your grade for you to ignore, but not worth the time it takes to complete them. The problem is not that these assessments are all necessarily pointless - it's that you don't even get a choice. You might be perfectly capable of self-directed study, you might be struggling with a completely different topic, or you might be overloaded with work already (I once had 12 hefty deadlines in a single month when I was only halfway through semester). Hell, you might even point out that your marks are not meant to be used as bargaining chips to control students' day-to-day behaviour. Nevertheless, if you don't conform to this top-down, one-size-fits-all study schedule, then you're punished with grade deductions. It eventually feels like a stress-driven office job where you're churning out useless paperwork for the sake of your tutors - except that you're the one who's paying.
The reason usually given for such ham-fisted policies is that it "raises the average mark". But even this reasoning is problematic, because our marks don't tell much of the story, do they? In nearly every subject (including most "project-based" subjects), your evaluation is still dominated by the timed paper exam: that assessment where your skill as an engineer (that is, your ability to think deeply and creatively about open-ended problems, to conduct research, to consider real-world issues, and to co-ordinate a solution with various stakeholders) is measured by how well you can guess, in approximately seven minutes, the exact method, solution, and level of detail envisaged by your individual marker, on a series of black-and-white, pen-and-paper problems that (if you're lucky) represent a partial sliver of a cross-section of twelve weeks' content that you have memorised for reflexive regurgitation now and never again, all at one arbitrary moment in June/November, where pure speed is massively overvalued down to the second, and where research and collaboration are banned.
Is it any wonder, then, that those who filter through to academia have a reputation for being petty and sheltered? Is it any wonder that any half-intelligent person knows not to read into your grades? And is it any wonder that UniMelb Engineering graduates are notorious in the industry for having no initiative or social awareness, to the point where the Faculty has actually started forcing its students through a crapshoot of remedial programs (albeit programs that, true to form, miss the point and famously waste everyone's time) aimed at teaching us How To Think And Talk Like Normal Human Beings? We're not nurturing or selecting for the best engineers. We're just running a bizarre ranking system based on how compliantly you can parrot one-off memory tests while locked in a shed. Does anyone else feel like they've barely had a chance to use their brain at university?
At this point, you usually encounter the cop-out chorus: "Other unis do the same", "We're researchers, not teachers", "Something something university run like a business". But whether you buy those excuses or not, the Faculty's actions haven't been those of an organisation that is apologetically going with the least worst option - they recently doubled down by turning our exams into hurdle requirements. So, you might have spent all semester labouring painstakingly over your masterpiece of a project, but if you have a single bad morning, or if you just get thrown for time (because, I don't know, maybe you're a meticulous or imaginative type who tends not to do all your work at a sprint), then it's an instant fail grade for you, and you can look forward to repeating the whole circus next semester - here's your invoice. And when the COVID era showed that our exam conditions are divorced from reality to the point of being unenforceable, the general response was not to rethink our assessment methods, but instead to double down on the difficulty and time pressure - which, far from stamping out cheating and "collusion rings" (what is this, a drug bust?) has only turned them into a necessity.
Of course, you can try to explain to your subject co-ordinators how they might facilitate greater student autonomy. But even in response to low-hanging fruit, such as...

...you're typically met with tone-deaf dismissal and insecurity. They'll pull out every excuse in the book, or they'll baselessly tell you that "yours is not a majority opinion", even when the whole point is that there's no need to do everything by tyranny of the majority. And the higher up you go, the more you have to put up with toxic narcissists whose reaction to anything short of having their arses kissed is to bluster and bully.
