My boyfriend lives just outside our city in a suburb, and I live in a so-called "up and coming" area. I love him but my boyfriend can be kind of a wuss. He refuses to drive to my neighborhood at night time, and he told me he never feels safe wearing nice clothes when he comes over. I'm a woman and I live alone and I've been fine for the past year (my boyfriend has been in the area longer than I have). If I feel safe then he has nothing to worry about. There's a couple shootings a few blocks down from me every other week, but that's what you get living in a city.

This week his car got broken in to parked down the street from me. Nothing was missing but he was freaking out and blamed me for it. Now he's telling me that unless I move he's never coming to visit me again, and that if I want to drive to see him (15min) or meet somewhere "nicer" in the city he'd be fine with that. I tried calming him down and letting him know that these things just happen and you can't control everything in life and he just won't listen to me.

What should I do?

Stories about rich sand nigger students please
>>
>>2036010
Most of them can’t be bothered to do anything because they know they’re guaranteed a job and good income, and all my students were even richer and more spoiled than average. Culturally they have trouble writing clearly and concisely, they think quality writing is a paragraph full of run-on sentences and every verb/noun needs over the top adverbs and adjectives. Almost all of them are products of first-cousin marriages, and it shows. Classes are segregated by sex, and there’s always a shortage of female teachers so their standards are lower for them, but I had no interaction with female students and the female teachers didn’t complain about them as much as male teachers complained about theirs. Parents were haughty, drove ridiculously fancy cars, always spotlessly clean even driving through the desert everyday to drop off and pick up their kids. It wasn’t terrible but the whole region just seemed unsustainable. I can imagine them all turning back into desert war bands when their oil money runs out. Stayed for a year and went back to Asia. My cousin has worked there for a decade and now he’s set for life (unless/until the property market in Canada collapses) but I’d rather work almost anywhere else.

Eventually he just stopped showing up and when they called him he was in the Middle East and didnt tell anyone he was gonna leave.

Hey guys, I'll be finishing up my bachelor's this summer and am interested in teaching English abroad as my major has a lot of content on language acquisition and general language teaching.
I was mostly interested in Taiwan to teach in but for the vast majority of online ads that I've seen so far on eslcafe for instance, teaching jobs in mainland China pay a lot better than the jobs in Taiwan, not to mention that many of the China ads claim to pay for your rent.
I've never really been too fond of mainland China, but if the pay is much better than in Taiwan, then I will definitely consider it.
Can anyone attest to the pay difference between the two nations? Also, for those that have taught in China, how difficult/annoying is it to manage through the Great Firewall BS there? Thanks.

what is your ideal beach?
things to consider:
weather? should it be very hot, or only in summer months, not too hot?

size of beach
quality of sand, are there rocks
scenery is it pure beach or are there cliffs, shitty fishing huts or skyscrapers?

potential for large waves, or typically calm seas or doesnt matter?

is it busy or quiet? do the demographics matter? slutty women attract douchy guys, family fun, boomers, surfers can be gay about locals only, blacks or mexicans? What is the vibe, is everyone getting drunk and rowdy, or being loud families having a stressful day at the beach?
are you going to pick up girls?

is it part of a beach resort - are there waiters with drinks/food coming to your beach chairs?
are there vendors walking around selling snacks and drinks?

does it need to be near a developed area, whether it is a city or resort town, with bars/food/shops right off of the beach? drive out into the barren dunes, or climb through forest and cliffs to find a secluded little cove


are there beach activities you plan on doing or activities you hope other people are not doing?
surfing, fishing (boat or from beach), jetskis, paddleboards, volleyball, paddleball, soccer, sandcastles, bonfires and bbqs - picnics?

In Spain it is going to depend on the individual regions. The Basque country wants to wear masks until September, October: https://www.elcorreo.com/sociedad/salud/gobierno-vasco-augura-20210614220720-nt.html

But what I would also consider: you will be forced to wear a mask everywhere in the hostels.

I am from Germany. Map related is the places we can enter. Our government allows for nearly free travel but if you enter a variant area you have to quarantine (marked with an X). My work doesn't allow work from home and the classifications don't follow a strict pattern. Like I could travel to Mexico for 20 days without issues but if they change it on the 21st day then I'm fucked. What would you do in such a situation? My holidays are in 45 days.

You are gambling by trying to go far away of you can't work remotely.

If you can accept the fact that your flights may get changed/cancelled and you may not be able to work at all then go somewhere far. If not, stay in Europe.

I will be going on my longest trip yet this July - 17 days in italy.

My iternary is Milan - Sirmione/Garda - Bologna - Rome (4 days each, 5 in Rome).

I am a huge /ck/ fag and I am primarily interested in food culture, restaurants and local food products.
I made this thread for you to post the best food experiences you had in Italy, ideally in these cities and nearby places a day trip away. That should cover most of Italy north of Latsio.
The best trattorias, restaurants, bars, cheese farms or whatever the fuck you loved, post it.

I heard bologna has the best food in Italy.
Is naples worth a day trip from Rome for the "authentic neapolitan pizza" or is that mostly a meme?

My favorite unusual restaurant in Milan is La Sidreria. meaning a place that serves Cider. It is all you can eat of a 7+ course meal where many dishes are apple inspired, and all you can drink of choice of like 5 ciders maybe they give 1 beer. It is not a best italian food in milan type of place but you do get to try weird stuff and it is a cheap place to fill up and get drunk with friends.

Peck is like a luxury food market, they also have a fancy cafe.
La Rinascente is a luxury department store, they have a top floor of restaurants and food that are expensive. Obica mozzarella bar has a balcony right next to the top of milan's duomo, also mozzarella based dishes are good (more than one location in milan).

Other places with view of duomo to have a drink are Signorvino - they have food i think it'd be ok over priced but its a wine shop with a bar you can chill have a glass.
I've never been to this but Terraza Aperol is an aperol spritz themed bar that is a nice view of duomo, aperol spritz is one of my faovrite cocktails but milan is a city of cocktails to try.

Enoteca is word for wine bar, i don't know them but if you want a tasting of wines but can't get to a vineyard, look for one. I'm usually happy ordering vino di casa.

Maybe this idea is offensive to you, but maybe you are with a dogbrain woman, there is a starbucks reserve rostary https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jf0ZtZ8CVkk
however if meme fancy expensive cafes are your thing milan has many less evil ones like Pasticceria Marchesi, Camparino (aka Bar Zucca - many italian bitters developed here including Zucca - a rhubarb based one i dont like), Bar Luce (Wes Anderson designed one), 10 Corso Como café (pretentious shopping and pretentious nightclub should also have a pretentious cafe), there are several more

one treat i always liked was getting a Granita, a sicilian slushy, many gelateria or cafes have them but also street carts, i usually got one behind castello before walking into parco sempione
>>

No problem, and congrats on being trans

Aperitivo is a concept in much of italy but very popular in Milan, food is served with a drink - the idea was supposed to be a snack before dinner/your night out, but some places have gone full buffet you can replace a dinner for the price of an expensive drink. It is mistranslated as happy hour but the drinks are actually a euro or two more than their usual price... the quality and comfort of aperitivo varies widely, many fancy places just give chips focaccia and veggies (like Bar Rita - i still recommend nice cocktails), many popular ones without a reservation you are crowded standing with your drink but also how are you going to eat rice off a tiny plate? A local one i'd go to was Ciu's where you could get a liter of any drink and then a super large buffet selection, but you'll see online ratings are mediocre hah not for people looking for glamorous milan holiday.

In navigli area there are dozens of bars with filling apperitivi, navigli is a nice area to wander for random food and drink if you don't have a plan. also in area form colonne to porta ticinese but not sure about apperitivi there. by no means are these the only places for that.

Mentioning Colonne di san lorenzo - its quite popular on nice nights to get drinks and sit in the piazza drinking and smoking there are many bars around that sell beers and cocktails for a euro cheaper if its takeaway not sit down. There will be sri lankans around trying to sell you roses or from their tray of lighters cigs gum toys which could be bought at the tabaccheria just next to the place you bought your beer.
tabaccheria - tobacco shops where you get smokes and etc, also where you buy public transport tickets (universal), cant buy on bus. there are machines in places tho like the metro.

Birrificio Lambrate is a local brewery they make several styles of beer. they have a bar and a pub location. they are usually always packed and hard to get in the door because smokers crowd entrances drinking outside.

La Fontanella was a fun place to drink a lot of beer in a group - they serve beer in gimmicky containers.

Kilburn cocktail bar does really fancy ones, its nice

Nottingham Forest bar has crazy cocktail presentations

in general, drinks to consider in italy
aperol spritz
campari sprtiz - more bitter
hugo spritz - new cocktail, prosecco elderflower, mint
negroni - campari sweet vermouth gin
negroni sbagliato - campari vermouth prosecco
cardinale - campari dry vermouth gin
americano - campari vermouth soda
bellini -prosecco and peach puree
rossini - prosecco and strawberry pure
sgroppino - lemon sorbet, vodka, prosecco
angelo azzurro - blue angel - curacao, triple sec, gin
quattro bianchi - 4 whites, a cocktail to get fucked up, like long island iced tea(also in italy), it masks how strong the drink actually is.


you can order specific beers, but often you can just ask for a type of beer on tap - birra alla spina by saying the color. of the mass produced beers in italy they're all fine, i like menabrea and forst
birra chiara - light (color) beer
birra scurro - dark beer
birra rossa - red beer

Italy has many amari - bitters, and other liqueurs. im not too into it but if you're interested in trying local things:
Fernet-Branca - from milan, in argentina they make a cocktail called fernando with cocacola
Disaronno - town of saronno is in milan's sphere
Sambuca - rome, often in cafe correctto
Limoncello - the south origin, often given a free shot if you spend a lot at dinner
Grappa - north, bassano del grappa maybe reachable from garda. often in coffee also
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Italian_liqueurs

Chinotto - a type of bitter orange soda
Limonata - lemonade
Gazzosa - lemon soda
Aranciata - orange soda
Aranciata rossa - blood orange
i like the brand Lurisia - La Nostra sodas
cafes often have tiny bitter sodas if you dont want a coffee, alcohol, or succo d'arancia/spremuta (orange juice often fresh squeeze); things like stappi, crodino, cedrata
