2021.12.05 18:10 No-Aerie-6873 I got into Big4 with a 3.0 GPA
I recently received an offer as an analyst from Big4 (Deloitte, EY, PwC, and KPMG).
The minimum GPA required was 3.3, but I still applied and got an offer.
I am not proud of my GPA, and yes, I struggled A LOT during my college years, but I was able to get back on track during my final 4 semesters. I was also having difficulty finding internships. All of my other friends were getting internships at larger companies, but I received no responses from "brand" companies.
I sucked it up and got internships at small to mid-sized companies that no one had ever heard of. My school was not even a top priority; in fact, we had a bad reputation for Big4.
Everything worked out in the end. Not only did I receive an offer from Big4, but I also received a couple of other offers from mid-sized and well-known IT firms.
So, if you're looking for a job (especially if you're still in college), invest in yourself. Put in the effort and time. Don't worry about getting brand names if you don't get any, like me, because what will get you a job are:

2021.12.05 18:10 steve42089 A letter from Illinkis
From the website The Bulwark
And from Illinois Dear Mr. Charlie Sykes,
I am a third year economics major at the University of Chicago…
I recently left the [Democratic] Party (though I will still vote Democrat until Trumpism is defeated) because political culture on the left has become increasingly toxic. I cannot consider myself in the same political tribe with people who think that all white people are racist, Israel is a white colonial state, speech is violence, the definition of good policy is throwing enormous sums of money at a problem, and the meritocracy is racist.
Of course, not all Democrats believe these things, but many of my peers do—peers who have the power to cancel me for my centrist views at any time they chose. The final straw for me was during the conflict in Israel a few months ago when many of my Leftist current and former classmates were sharing Instagram posts with rhetoric that could have come straight from a neo-Nazi. As a Jew, I was so horrified by what my supposed political allies were saying that I felt no choice but to disassociate from them and from the Democratic Party as a whole because of its refusal to condemn such rhetoric.
The reason I am writing today is the uptick in violence that we have seen this past year. UChicago is (was) in a somewhat safe neighborhood, Hyde Park, on the South Side of Chicago. However, we have had three UChicago community members murdered in the past year. Three. One grad student, one undergrad, and one recent graduate. This gives UChicago a murder rate of 15 per 100,000, three times the national average. On top of this, there was an assassination attempt of a congressional candidate (we do not know if he was specifically targeted or not) on my walking route back to my apartment. Had this shooting happened half an hour later, I would have been there too. This is not to mention the almost daily armed muggings in the neighborhood. I am terrified to leave my apartment and when I do, I cannot bring anything that I am not willing to have stolen from me. That means I won't bring my computer to class, even though this is essentially a necessity in the modern classroom....
The worst part is that when we students expressed our fears and demanded more policing of the neighborhood to keep us safe, left wing student activists called us racists and demanded, once again, that the campus police department be defunded. Similarly, Democrats in office refuse to believe that there is a crime problem and won't advocate for any policies that would make us safer because this opposes the interests of the Democratic base. UChicago’s President says that he will “work with the mayor” to reduce crime in the neighborhood, but for once I agree with Reagan: the most terrifying words in the English language are “I’m from the Chicago mayor’s office, and I’m here to help.”
To summarize where I think we are: our democracy is under threat from the Right and our freedom of speech is under threat from the Left. The Right is advocating for political violence and the Left is advocating for policies to increase crime that threatens my life and the lives of my peers at UChicago.
The Right houses anti-Semites like the “good people on both sides” at Charlottesville and Marjorie Taylor Greene, while the Left houses anti-Semites who attack Israel’s right to exist and promote deranged conspiracy theories and neo-Nazi tropes. The Right ignores policy problems that are important like climate change, while the Left promotes policy solutions where the only metric of success is the price tag. The skit from SNL from two weeks, “Republican or Not,” sums it up pretty well. My question to you and the Bulwark team is, how am I supposed to vote for someone (like Mayor Lightfoot) whose policies make me too scared to leave my apartment? How am I supposed to vote for someone (like Ilhan Omar) who votes against foreign aid to Israel and promotes anti-Semitic conspiracy theories that could potentially endanger my life when I go to Shabbat? I hate Trump and Trumpism as much as you do. I hate this current Republican Party as much as you do. I miss 2015 before I even knew who Trump was and took joy in learning about politics and supporting Democratic causes.
In today’s world, there has to be another option. I will continue to vote Democrat as long as the Republicans pose a threat to the Republic, but I should not have to vote for people who I believe are dangerous to myself, my friends, and our country. I think the answer is structuring a non-partisan, pro-democracy coalition that endorses good, moderate candidates from both sides of the aisle while opposing the dangerous ones. Admittedly, they would be supporting basically a handful of Republicans and most of the Democrats, but this might be a force that independents and centrists could attach to, ultimately bringing the parties closer to the center to gain this endorsement.
This email is much longer than I intended, so I will just conclude by saying once again how grateful I am to you and the team for the excellent work. You are making a difference both to me personally and to the rest of us who no longer have an ideological home

2021.12.05 18:10 Two08 What is the best and worst month for job change?
2021.12.05 18:10 Rymesakian Without any information on my own thoughts on my type, I’d love to get some unbiased opinions on my core, wing, and tritype
1. What drives you in life? What do you look for?
This is something I try to find within myself all the time. At different times it can be different things. I sometimes feel like when I look at the fears and motivations of the Enneagram types that none of them truly encapsulates that core thing for me, but then again maybe it’s because what drives me is so unconscious that I don’t even notice it. My infatuation is with finding meaning for myself and for the world. I need meaning, and it can be very discouraging when I think things are meaningless. It’s a constant battle within to consistently find meaning and passion in the things I do. I very often find myself saying “What’s the point?” and falling into depressions that I can’t seem to get out of. When I’m passionate about something though, I’m completely all in. There’s no feeling like the feeling of fulfillment you get when you know you’re doing something that’s aligned with your purpose. I want to make the world better for everyone, including myself. Humanitarian and environmental causes are very important to me, along with expressing love authentically and creating beauty in the world.
2. What do you hope to accomplish in your life?
Many things, but of course I can only choose a few focuses. First and foremost, I want to be a great artist. I want to make things that no one has seen before, and that really define me as a person. I try very hard to be unfiltered in creating pieces that reflect exactly what I was experiencing at the time of their creation.
I’d also love to do as much humanitarian and environmental work as possible. I’m a firm believer that everyone has a responsibility to make the world a little bit better each day through their actions. Being mindful about how we fit as cogs into the greater machine of the world and society as a whole is important. Especially now, we all need to examine ourselves really closely and have a good look at what really matters - things like climate change, fair treatment of animals, corruption, capitalism, wealth inequality, etc. etc.
3. What do you hope to avoid doing or being? What values are important to you?
I would hate to become just another average Joe that does nothing of significance with their life in the greater world. I’ve always envisioned myself as a powerful mover someday. A work of art as a human, and someone that people can look up to for inspiration and healing. I would hate to have all this potential inside me go to waste. If I never overcame my shyness to be the brave, bold leader I know I could be, then I’d have quite a bit of regret at the end of my life. I value integrity, authenticity, and kindness above all at the end of the day. It bothers me that we continue to plummet into superficiality as a world, creating higher and higher standards for each other, taking us further away from our true nature and what really matters as human beings.
4. What are your biggest fears (not including phobias)? Why?
Similarly to knowing what motivates me in life, I have a hard time knowing exactly what my deepest fears really are. Of course, I can think of knee jerk answers off the top of my head - the fear of being truly alone in the world with nobody I can share my inner self with, the fear of being physically attacked or hurt by someone else, the fear of losing my sanity or that my mind may stop functioning properly someday, the fear of hurting others unintentionally. But none of those feel like they quite get to the heart of it. I’ve been on psychedelic trips in which I’ve faced very intense, deep-seated fears I didn’t realize were so real and all-consuming. I realize since childhood I’ve had a fear of complexity, especially when it has to do with things like life and death medical procedures. The idea that my body could fail me or that I’d have to live with a compromised mind or physical limitations is terrifying to me. The idea that I could be left alone with those ailments or be a burden to others because of them is just as terrifying. The fear of being stuck in one place forever, in darkness, unable to move away from that singular existence makes me shudder. I simultaneously respect and fear the unknown and the greatness of the universe and the divine. That knowledge and collapsing of the perception of the way I always thought I knew things to be was and is still one of the scariest things.
5. How do you want others to see you? How do you see yourself?
I want others to see me as someone who knows themselves deeply and fully. I want people to respect me because of the personal power I hold. I also want people to see me as joyful and kind, a beacon of love. The image I project is complicated. I don’t think people see it that way, but internally I’m always conflicted on what I want people to see. I obsess over it, constantly wondering how others are perceiving me when I walk into a room or onto the street. There’s a whole tidal wave of intensity just under the surface most of the time that I very rarely show. I have to trust people deeply to show them the full range of emotions and opinions I have, otherwise I’m just very warm, cordial, and people-pleasing.
I see myself in so many ways. I look at myself from all different angles as if I were a specimen in my own lab I’m looking at with a magnifying glass from all around, inside and out. It changes day to day. Sometimes I see myself as the most loving, amazing person, like I can give everyone the best kind of advice and support, and that I can see their condition very purely and empathetically. At times, I get into states where I think I’m way better than most people because of it, like only I see the world the way I do and only I have all the answers and patience. Other times though, I feel like I’m a piece of trash that no one could ever love. I tell myself that I’m incapable of deserving love or giving enough of it to others. I feel like a weight that others have to drag around. I make excuses as to why I’m so f’d up, like everyone else just has it all together, but I can’t for some reason. I’ll genuinely believe that everyone in the whole world has this head start or this perspective on life that makes it so much easier for them that I just can’t have and could never have because my past was so different and f’d up compared to theirs. It’s a lot. In those times, I feel very very controlled by my negative emotions. I see myself in the worst light. I almost enjoy being dark and twisted and sad. When the feelings pass a bit, I joke about it all and make fun of myself for how dramatic I was, but if others point out something negative I still get a little offended inside. I can feel very misunderstood and as much as I know my dark emotional states aren’t good for me, I sometimes just wish someone would come in and tell me I can bask in it for as long as I want and enable it. It’s like I want people to agree with me that there’s nothing I could ever do to get out of my situation and that I’ll always just be flawed in a certain way that can never be fixed, but also want someone to fix it all for me. It’s a push-pull battle internally that almost never feels peaceful or satisfied.
6. What makes you feel your best? What makes you feel your worst?
I feel my best when I’m accomplishing things I need to accomplish and have genuine goals I’m passionate about. I love doing work that feels like it feeds my soul. I love knowing I’m doing a good job and that it’s making a difference. If I have a solid community of people I feel connected to, along with my loving partner and family relationships being harmonious, nothing could be better.
I feel my worst when my life is in limbo. Because I’m an artist there can be long periods of time where I stagnate and don’t actually have to go in to a 9-5 job, and those times can get dark quickly if I don’t will myself to make myself and my situation work. As much as I secretly love doing it, indulging my negative emotions is a guaranteed fast-track to an unproductive, depressing day. But I feel like I need to feel those feelings to move forward. I feel horrible when I’m being criticized or when people think I’m being lazy or unproductive or not good enough. No one’s really ever said those things directly, but I have very high standards for myself internally, so when I’m not meeting them I naturally feel like the whole world just knows it and is looking down on me shamefully. I absolutely hate conflict, especially with loved ones, so that also makes me feel pretty crappy inside. I also feel dead inside if I’m being told what to do or if I feel like I can’t speak up or like my life is being directed by others. I need to be the driver of my destiny.
7. Describe how you experience each of: a) anger; b) shame; c) anxiety.
a) I feel anger pretty regularly. It’s not the most common emotion I face, but I experience it often enough. It normally comes out as frustration with the way things are. I get frustrated with myself and how I’m moving in terms of my career and relationships, but I think I have more passionate “frustration” about the state of society as a whole. I just hate how people can’t see what really matters sometimes. I get really upset when people don’t understand my vision or how I’m feeling about something or when I feel like I’m being controlled or manipulated. Anger can be very fiery and destructive though, so I tend to keep it to myself or vent to the people closest to me when I need to. I’m pretty comfortable with it.
b) Shame is probably the worst feeling you can feel. I experience it very often, most days really. I think it’s always there, even when I feel my best and think it’s not. I’m always ashamed of myself, often just for existing. I’ve always struggled with feeling like I don’t even deserve to take up space, like I have to do something to earn my existence rights. I’m so painfully sensitive to people’s perceptions of me. If someone says something even slightly negative about me directly to me, especially if I know it’s true and can’t argue it, I feel a lump in my throat and want to go cry in the bathroom. I have a very hard time allowing myself to feel good or happy. It seems like my lot in life is struggle. I have a very hard time asserting myself or brushing off people’s projections even when I know they’re not true. I just always feel bad around other people to some extent even if things are going well. I’m always expecting that shoe to drop where someone gets upset with me or rejects me and doesn’t want me anymore.
c) Anxiety has always been very present for me as well. It almost 100% has to do with other people, so it’s more social anxiety than anything. I’ve always been very very shy and as a child kids didn’t always understand me. I came from a strict upbringing and kids weren’t always the nicest so I learned to always be on guard around other people. I’ve always kept to myself and never really had any really close friends after the first year of high school. I have a hard time reaching out or making anything happen socially now in adult life because I always expect people to be busy or think I’m boring. I get very anxious hosting anything in my home with people I don’t know super well. It’s just a lot of pressure and I feel like I need to entertain and be responsible for making sure everything happens and goes smoothly. I’m also just afraid they won’t understand me or that they’ll think I’m weird and eccentric, but also that if they don’t leave when I want them to I won’t have anywhere to go to escape. So yeah, social anxiety is big. I get anxious about my own standards for work too as I said before. I’m just always fighting against my own impulses to run away and hide from everything. Mindfulness and meditation has helped reduce anxiety dramatically though to the point that it’s not as big a part of my life anymore. I can spend time around people now and just feel peace internally knowing that I’m me and that if people don’t like it then I can just leave and the world won’t end.
8. Describe how you respond to each of: a) stress; b) unexpected change; c) conflict
a) hmm I react differently to stress depending on what kind it is. If it’s work stress then I normally get kind of frantic and push through to get it all done. I clamp down and try to focus but I can feel the tension and irritation coursing through my body. If it lasts for too long or if it has to do with work I don’t want to be doing then I’ll probably have an emotional breakdown that lasts a while. It happened a few months ago. I just cried and cried and cried and couldn’t stop. I was desperately reaching out to my partner and family hoping they would see how bad I had it and how I needed to be rescued from my misery. I get very self-pitying and even vindictive if I feel too stressed. My problems become everyone else’s fault and I need like a circle of people around me consoling me in my head. I start imagining how I’m on my own in this world and how no one appreciates the things I’m doing or who I am. It’s kind of embarrassing and verrrry dramatic.
b) again it depends. I don’t really like it, but I’m also ok with it. I tend to be very open and adaptable, so I usually just go with the flow to make things work, even if I feel inner tension or irritation at the change in plans. With my partner especially though I have a very hard time hiding my disappointment or upset when something I was looking forward to or expecting changes. It can very much trigger my internal feelings of shame and anger, like maybe there’s something I could have done to make things work out but also “I’m so angry inside that things aren’t going my way, and you should’ve known how this would affect me.” It can throw my whole mood off, but it depends on the situation, why things are changing, and who it is.
c) I HATE conflict. But again it depends on who it’s with. In my close family I have no problem with hashing it out. I used to get into very heated arguments all the time with my mom, so that’s no issue really. I’m pretty comfortable with my partner too, but it still feels awful when we’re talking about each other’s shortcomings or things that need to change in the relationship. If I know there’s no hope for a situation with someone and that conflict needs to happen then I’ll head into it very assertively, but I’m much better at doing so in writing. When I know someone is in the wrong I can bring the hammer down very hard and have no remorse or time for any kind of negotiations (this has happened more in the past with narcissists I’ve known who won’t own up and try to lie). I have very little patience or time for people who show no interest in working things out. But at the same time im very uncomfortable working things out. I don’t like doing the whole compromise thing. It can feel like im having to sacrifice part of myself or vice versa like it’s fake to try to make each other do things differently. I just feel very uncomfortable with conflict and avoid it when possible but when it happens it is what it is and I try to move through it as patiently and gracefully as possible.
9. Describe your orientation to: a) authority; b) power. How do you respond to these?
a) I don’t love the idea of authority. It feels oppressive. I know it’s needed in some capacity to make society run properly, but too many authorities abuse their power. When you put so much power in the hands of a few people, the majority’s wants and needs can very easily be swept to the side to make room for the authorities’ self-interest. That’s the dangerous part of it, and I think my aversion to the word itself is because of how I grew up and how it’s been portrayed in the media as of late. I was raised very conservatively and religiously so I know how dangerous it can be to trust fully in authorities to run your life. The brainwashing can take away years of your life and cause psychological issues that take years to overcome if ever. People who fully give themselves over to tradition and authority also tend to be quite closed-minded. It just hinders people from being themselves. There’s give and take in any society, but generally authorities want people to conform to some kind of idea or order. It just doesn’t sit super well with me when I think about that and I think society could really benefit from fewer iron fist authority type figures. I wish we could trust that humans are inherently good and that each person is their own authority at the end of the day.
b) Power. It’s an enticing word. Power is a good thing. Personal power is very important. Every single person has the power to manifest the life they want for themselves. We are creators. We just have to believe it. It’s when people abuse their power that things go south. It’s really the whole thing with authorities and power. If people had integrity and truly had everyone’s best interests at heart it would be amazing, and it can be amazing. There are fantastic, very powerful leaders in the world. That’s just not the way it happens a lot of the time.
10. What is your overall outlook on life and humanity?
I think life and humanity are beautiful. In their purest forms they’re magic. Life is a chance to create. It’s a chance to bring something beautiful to the world. It’s a chance to experience the universe as something bigger than yourself very consciously. It’s just exactly what is meant to be manifesting itself moment to moment. Humanity is a vessel for life in all its different forms. Each of us has a slice of consciousness that the universe has doled out. Our physical bodies, our species, our animal is just a vessel on the journey. Our past hasn’t always been pretty, and our present isn’t either, but there are so many redeeming qualities to our race. We’ve done some really amazing things and I have hope that we can continue to evolve into something beautiful. It can be hard to maintain, but I think it’s the only thing that will keep us going, clinging to that hope that we can live and die as respectable and good beings.

2021.12.05 18:10 doodle12345678910 PID?
Is PID common? I have lupus and have routine bloodwork and urine tests every 3 months, when I went in August my doctor told me my swab came back positive for chlamydia. (I had only been with one person since my last bloodwork) the first time I seen him was about a month before getting my tests done. I had no symptoms at all and no signs of infection, I got treatment and told my partner to get tested and treated as well. Fast forward to my most recent tests done last week, I was shocked when my doctor told me my repeat swab was once again positive. I had only been seeing the same person previously mentioned the whole 3 month span, and we were using protection since I went off my birth control. My doctor explained it’s possible the antibiotics didn’t work or that we have passed it back and forth but I am freaked out! That means I could have had it for over a month without knowing. I have got treated again and am going to be abstinent until my next tests. I have recently started having horrible abdominal cramps and burning when I pee. I’ve been looking up my symptoms and am scared I could have gotten PID. Is anyone familiar with more symptoms?

I don't own the studio version of Davinci but I do own several Adobe services which includes Premiere. Now it's pretty obvious that I would switch to Adobe for Video Editing but I prefer nodes and Davinci UI/UX x100 times over Adobe's AE and Premiere UI.
What settings and filters would I need to use to create the VHS effect and the digital screen affect. I Would love to use these two features other than that Studio seems worthless to me so I don't want to spend 299$ on only two filters
