How can I improve my listening skills?

2021.10.21 11:39 samentha_gracilis How can I improve my listening skills?

Some background:
My first language was English and I started reading from a young age. But I remember preparing for the listening portion of a region-wide English Language Arts exam in 2nd grade and having trouble listening to the passages that the proctors read. I knew all the words, I didn't have a vocabulary or grammar problem like my immigrant classmates might have. It was as though I could not keep the info in my head, and being able to jot down notes didn't help.
I have since improved in that area in terms of exams, but now that I am a college graduate, I see that the problem still lingers in some ways. For example, when people talk to me, my mind wanders even though I am nervous and tense (social anxiety). When people give me instructions, I forget most of them in a minute. Or I didn't absorb them in the first place.
Another example is that when I went to the doctor the other day, and I always try to get my mom to come because this happens: The doctor tells me about a possible course of treatment, including the names of medications, tests to be ran, the plan of action, etc. and I can't repeat what she said shortly afterwards. But mom was able to catch it (I don't know if it matters that she's a healthcare professional.) When the doctor is talking, I try hard to keep eye contact and nod like I understand. But I don't. I leave the office embarrassed that I need my mom there.
The reason I am bringing this up now is because this is affecting my life especially badly now that I am job hunting. I had 3 interviews at different stages from 1 company so far, and each time was a battle to hang onto the words the interviewers said. And later on, how will I be able to follow instructions when I get a job? I purposely avoid going out without someone with me now because I'm afraid that my problem will lead me into a hole one day.
I desperately need help.

2021.10.21 11:39 AggressiveHorror5541 Today I came out to my family as a fat person.

Ever since I was little, I never felt great in my body, I was slim (90kg) and have been gaining weight for the past 10 years. I am 175kg now and it's been getting hard to hide my back boobs and my triple layered belly, so today I took my family out to dinner (McDonalds) and told them everything. They were very supportive and ordered me 3 more big macs to show how much they appreciate that I finally came out. They also started using my correct pronouns (big/fat). I wanted to share this little story with you because I am sure many of you are struggling and are afraid to be your true selves and give you hope that your family and friends will support your identity. Today is a big day in the life of a big person, surrounded with people with big hearts and I have never been happier. Remember fellow XL (extra lovable) people, the universe is expanding and so should we ❤️

2021.10.21 11:39 pineal_bland Has anyone had liver pains after taking Kratom for a long time?

I’m now only taking 5 grams a day but I’ve been pretty addicted to Kratom for over a year now. But I’ve been getting paranoid about my intake along with caffeine, alcohol, and sometimes ibuprofen(not all of these at the same time). Sometimes I have a weird ache where my liver is. Just wanted to know if anyone has ever had experience like this

2021.10.21 11:39 Talzael Has Noritoshi Kamo ever ''existed'' ?

I know this might sound like a weird one but we know kenjaku was using kamo's body at some point but when was the switch made ? Was he already an evil sorcerer before ? When they talk about ''Noritoshi Kamo, the most evil sorcerer to have ever walked the earth'' are we still talking about Kenjaku or nah ? I mean Kenjaku would still need a reason to want his body over someone else's, maybe the Kamo bloodline was enough to pick his interest ?

2021.10.21 11:38 DarkNinja1424 PF Stereotypes Pt.2

The Sniper-Only guy: A very rare but common person. Real snipers are snipers who bring a sniper regardless of the map. CQC map? No problem, the TRG is here! Long-range map? Hecate is there to help! They usually camp in secret sniping spots that they only know and never shares them. They're very common on sniper heavy maps like Ravod (who even snipes on Ravod?), Mirage Revamp and Desert Storm. They also probably have TF2 Sniper theme on full blast.
The Aggro Sniper: The aggro sniper is a sniper with none of the qualities a sniper has, like patience. They would use a short barrel and remove stock on the R700 or use 8mm on the Mosin.
The Fal Fan: His name explains it all. The Fal Fan is a person who only uses Fal type weapons. He would defend his beloved Fal Family if anyone dares criticize it. He would also have It's a long way to Mukumbura on full blast.
The SCAR Supporter: Basically the Fal Fan but SCAR version. He only uses SCAR type weapons. CQC map? SCAR PDW. Long-range map? SCAR SSR. Want to use a LMG? SCAR HAMR. He would defend the SCAR family and say the SCAR family is the best family of weapons in the game and anyone who has never used a SCAR is lesser poop and should be ashamed. Or he could be a Fortnite fan who thinks the SCAR is good in Fortnite so it must be good in PF.
The Wild Western-er: The Wild Westerner is a person who uses all weapons used in the wild west. From the Colt Navy carbine or revolver to the Henry, he loves to use them all. Until he gets clapped by a rank 10 BFG user from 69 studs away.

2021.10.21 11:38 KarlLehne Zum Thema Bestatterprank

Hey, einer von den Angesprochenen hier. Ich, Bestattungsfachkraft (m) 29, fühle mich "angeshoutet", daher hier meine 2 Cent:
Zum Thema Sterben und wer ruft wann den Bestatter, grundsätzlich habt ihr zwei Recht. Jemand, ein Arzt, muss den Tod offiziell feststellen und eine Todesbescheinigung ausstellen, erst dann dürfen wir den/die Verstorbene(n) in unsere Räume überführen. Ausnahmen bilden hier offizielle Anweisungen durch z.B. die Polizei.
Zur Abholung muss man sich auch keinen Sarg aussuchen. Wir kommen mit einer Trage, ähnlich der des Rettungsdienstes, nur mit Sichtschutz.
Robin muss ich auch enttäuschen, so kreativ ist dieser Prank nicht. Ich weiß nicht, wo oft soetwas bei uns versucht wurde... Als Profi merkt man aber sehr schnell, ob die Anrufe ernst gemeint sind.
Zu Knossi direkt: Kann ich (leider) nicht viel sagen. Weder kenne ich den direkten Ablauf, noch was genau vor Ort gesagt wurde. Ja es kommt mal vor, dass wir gerufen werden und erst vor Ort erfahren, wer genau verstorben ist. Der Anrufer ist in einer Ausnahmesituation und nicht immer in der Lage sich am Telefon verständlich zu machen.
Ich hoffe, ich konnte ein bisschen Klarheit schaffen. Für Fragen stehe ich gerne Bereit.
P.S. Da ich zur Zeit nur mobiles Internet zur Verfügung habe, können vermehrt Rechtschreibfehler auftreten.

Novice here who has recently become interesting in making my own recordings. Wondering if this can be done well using an iphone and, if so, what the best mic would be? Not wanting to spend much more than $100.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

2021.10.21 11:38 kzoogr Played my first round Slice free

Just completed 9 holes. I'm still sitting here in disbelief at the result. I shot a personal best (by far) and I was driving fairly straight (had a slight left to right contained to the fairway).
Grounds were super wet, and my drives were falling between 215-250 with what seemed like zero rollout. (plugged fw shots). I didn't care at all about distance. I was sseeing good ball flight from my driver and my irons.
I watched this video last night:

Showed up to play this morning and hit a warm up bucket of balls and just worried about this weight shift she points out.
It is so simple, that I'm kicking myself. I know everyone is different, and I've watched dozens of videos that promise to "Fix" my slice. My brain is jumbled with so many thoughts that I'm often feeling like I'm taking half swings, 3/4 swings, rotating weird, whatever.

2021.10.21 11:38 steveissuperman Empower Clinics ($EPWCF / $CBDT) has been halted all morning...

No one seems to know what is going on, but Empower Clinics ($EPWCF on OTC, $CBDT on CSE) has been stuck in a halt all morning. They just opened their fourth clinic in Canada earlier this week, and have an ongoing dispute with Health Canada about their take-home covid test kits that were previously being sold across Canada. They are still sold in the US where their subsidiary Kai Medical Labs is located.
This halt didn't seem to be triggered by volatility as far as I could tell, so some major news is about to drop...

So I’m planning on going snowboarding January 2023 but need advice as to what attire to take (brands included) and what snowboard would be best for someone in my position (beginner) I’ve looked at freestyle and all-mountain options but because there are so many camber varieties, I don’t know what way to turn…
Any advice on what attire to buy and snowboard to rent would be greatly appreciated 👍👍
