Have you ever spent months working on a project something only for it to fall far too short of your expectations?
I spent 2 months working on a simple web game utilizing jquery draggable and droppable widgets.
It's my first project I've ever worked on in web dev. And as I near closer to completion, I'm realizing it's just not quite hitting the mark.
On one hand I'm proud of what I have acconplished, but am disappointed that my project I invested so much time in isn't working out how I planned.
It's a recreation of a simple coin puzzle game featured in a Numberphile video on YouTube.
It was so fulfilling to work on throughout the process. So many problems to solve, new ideas along the way. But two problems are coming back to haunt me as I near completion.
One is the fact that draggables (coins in the game) don't have any collision behavior, and the other is that I might have made the game too simple by enabling a "hint" function showing allowable places where coins can be moved.
The former has caused problems defining what the rules are in the tutorial. So they can't be as intuitive as "you can't push coins out of the way", and has forced me to employ some sub-optimal, verbal gymnastics to explain properly.
The latter I'm afraid makes it too easy to solve, yet it's the single most aesthetically pleasing element of the game.
I'm forcing myself to finish it... but it's just kind of disappointing, even embarrassing.submitted by /u/dmvaz to r/web_design
Hi all. I’m 18 years old and have been daydreaming since I was about 11. That being said... I have never been caught daydreaming, or mentioned it to anyone, so no one knows that I do this except for me.
I’m seriously ready to kick the habit... or addiction, rather. But I figure I need to speak my truth about it first. I’m not comfortable telling my family, and have no desire to seek therapy at this point, so I figured this would be a good outlet. I feel extremely dumb and embarrassed doing this, but I know it’s necessary.
So... Hi. I’m The Aquarius, and I’m a maladaptive daydreamer.
I usually turn my music up LOUD... and jump/pace and get lost in visions of myself singing, dancing, or doing acrobatics/gymnastics... performing. Since I was a kid, I’ve LOVED to dance but due to growing up in a small town & in a single-parent home with not much money, I was never able to pursue it. I’m also a very good singer, but because of social anxiety and constantly comparing myself to others growing up, I never revealed that talent to anyone either.
As silly as it sounds... I also have an ex that I’m having trouble letting go. He always doubted and underestimated me, put me down all the time, and would laugh at me when I’d pursue anything. So... a lot of my daydreams involve me performing while he’s in the audience in shock, wishing he never doubted me. I know, cringy and silly. I’m cringing as I type this. But it helps me cope.
The only times I’m NOT daydreaming is when I’m sick, injured etc., or very absorbed in something I like doing like hanging out with family. And even then, I sometimes feel myself drifting/having the urge to daydream.
Daydreaming for me is definitely a coping mechanism. I’m definitely not satisfied with my current circumstances, and I constantly feel that I’m not living up to my fullest potential. I can draw, write, sing, dance, and am actually very intelligent, but crippling anxiety, damaged chakras etc. keep me from blossoming the way I know I can. So I daydream, to console myself, which wastes time. And the cycle perpetuates itself.
If you’re still reading... thank you kindly. I honestly don’t know where I’m going from here, and I hope that when I go off to college, I’m able to engage myself in more things so that there’s no TIME for daydreaming. In the meantime, I’m gonna start drawing again and maybe even posting my drawings on Instagram like I used to. Idk. I’ve been trying to kick this for MONTHS with meditation, grounding exercises, putting my headphones on a high shelf.. all of which have failed me. But I refuse to give up. I will overcome this, and if you’re like me, I believe in you, too.
This is getting pretty long winded, so I’ll leave it here.
Thanks for reading.submitted by /u/the-aquarius to r/MaladaptiveDreaming
Me: 38HLM and Wife: 38LLF. 2 kids, a 4 year old and 7 year old. Dated for 8 years, married for almost 10 now. Been together since college.
I feel like I am going a bit insane, and I think I have become so trapped by my own coping mechanisms and my own dysfunctions that I am just not sure what to think any more. Here is my story, looking for a fresh set of eyes for criticisms/support/thoughts.
So a little background - intimacy has ALWAYS been an issue. From day 1. While sex was ok when we were dating, intimacy was always difficult. She would never really open up emotionally - I think 'I love you' was not uttered until about year 5 or something crazy. She actually tried to break up a few times early on, but when I asked her if there was another reason (to breakup) other than fear of becoming emotionally involved she decided to put in a little work and open up bit by bit. I think this is also why marriage came so late into the relationship.
Sex tapered off while we were dating and became infrequent enough that it was an issue - but the lack of sex was just a symptom. I am sure there were a million reasons for this, but in the end I broke it off. After this, she realized what we had together, or what she had in me, and doubled down to get back together. She realized she really needed to open up more and commit if we were to get back together. She did, we got married. We had kids.
Over the years things have just gotten progressively worse. I know she has issues and a history that have an impact and I try to be sensitive to this. I don't push her. I try to tell her every day that I appreciate her and that I think she is beautiful. I try to clean the house every day. I am affectionate, I have a good job, I am handsome, I am well endowed. I pack her lunch for work, I make dinner, I do the dishes, I pick the kids up from school, take them to gymnastics, do bedtimes. I work from home when they are sick. I am involved enough with the kids that one of my co-workers slipped and referenced me as a single parent when talking to someone else one day. I talk with her about how to plan out our time so that she can get personal time to herself to get work done or have fun or whatever. I think I am a good husband. I don't know what else to do.
I think she is just an unhappy person. I have always tried to 'fix' this, and the goal posts have always moved. I came to realize I can't make her happy - that is something she needs to find on her own. The best I can do is support it, but I think I have definitely stopped trying so hard to make her happy - whats the point if she will always come up with something new to be unhappy about. She is constantly creating new drama and issues for herself and blames the universe for being out to get her. She is NOT open to criticisms or talking about anything that infers she has a deficiency or shortcoming in any way, so I have tried to take a long game with this and just plant seeds that I hope will grow. Some have, most have not.
For as long as I can remember now the sex has been horrible. I think she really has just no interest whatsoever. I feel like she only has sex with me after a few months because I can begin to get crabby. But until that time, any intimacy is basically out. No flirting, no foreplay. Barely kissing. I feel like I have to ask her for a kiss most of the time. Affection is almost always initiated by me unless she wants me to hold her for emotional support. When she touches me affectionately I am almost shocked. Sex is usually 5 minutes. This is not my choice. I like making love and enjoying my partner. I am not only high libido but I am very sensual - my greatest pleasure comes from making my partner shudder. She wants no foreplay, she doesn't do oral - she let me go down on her once the first time we had sex. She immediately wants to just race to an orgasm and then taps my shoulder 'Your turn' - and urges me to get finished. Sometimes I cant. I think she initiated sex once while drunk in the past x years.
So nowadays I don't even initiate. I try to even avoid the possibility of being in a situation where I will feel obligated to attempt some type of initiation to keep intimacy in the relationship (since she wont) because I will just be depressed when I am either rejected or the 5 minutes are up. There is always an excuse. I sleep on the couch because of my snoring so that she can get a better sleep, and this doesn't help. But I don't think it would matter anyway. I gave up trying to make her happy - now I keep the house nice because it makes me happy. Sometimes I clean the house because I am angry and feel emotionally abused when she goes on crazy rants when she snaps under stress - she is incredibly high strung.
She is a good mom, and I think she loves me. She does some nice things for me. She will plan some date nights for us (but still almost always no sex). I know she loves me, at least as you would love a family member or a best friend. I am thankful for that. But this slow smoldering resentment is growing inside me. I am horribly unhappy in this marriage. I fantasize about divorce sometimes, but I don't really consider that an option because of the kids. I grew up without a dad, and I don't want to put my kids through a divorce. I think really, I am only in this marriage now for them, although I am not sure if I am doing the right thing. I am not happy, and try as best as I can I know this affects how I interact with the world day to day.
So now I feel like I am going crazy. All I really know is that I have a dead bedroom - and I have come to accept that, but I am deeply unhappy. I think I have repressed most of what I feel but I just can't do it anymore. I have mentally castrated myself to cope and this has caused further damage but I don't know what else I could have done or if anything else would have changed where I am now. I feel confused - I am not sure how much of what is going on is my responsibility and what I can do to make changes. I feel like if I talk to her, which I know I have to, nothing will change in the end and she is just going to flip out because that conversation will involve uncovering and talking about some deeper issues. All I know is that I need someone that makes me feel loved and appreciated - that at least gives me some unsolicited affection, a tiny bit of romance, and tells me I am handsome at least once in a blue moon.
My priority is my kids though. I just want to do right by them, but I am not sure what that is right now or what my next steps should be... but I know I have to start walking to make anything better.

My daughter is 7 and undoubtedly one of the stronger, well balanced and more flexible girls at our gym. The coaches and other parents expected us to jump at the invite for her to join the JO team a few months ago but with the time commitment and whatnot we went instead with their XCEL program. Does this decision have any huge repercussions at this age or can we move up later if she's motivated to do so?submitted by /u/leezer99 to r/Gymnastics

Hi guys, so ive been doing crossfit for about almost two years now & i love every single moment of it. Since last year i competed at my box during the open placed second overall and 3rd in the online standings from where im from. This year i went RX and everything went wrong, well not so wrong but not like how i wanted to. So since the open i wanted to follow a program that would help my individual needs such as Gymnastic,Lifting,Aerobic System & Endurance. Ive seem to follow the programs at my local crossfit facility but i cant say that im happy. So i was thinking, should i follow a individual program set specifically for me? If so, who should i contact? I saw bunch of good recommendations out there such as Dave Lipson that will create a specific program for you also on Overtime Barbell Shrugged. My main goal out of this is that i will like to be in great shape once the Wodapalooza Online Qualifying starts, plus we have a local competition throw down on the 7th of September till the 9th. I want to achieve as much as possible for next year. This year was a bit of a lump especially coming out from a 2 month knee injury. So i would just like to know what do you guys recommend? and have you ever been in such situation like mine?!
