u/Quick_and_Vigor · 1 pointr/Fitness

I do. I posted a bit ago on a pre I made for myself, but I have altered it as I changed when I worked out in the day. I also made some adjustments to some of the dosages.

My Pre-workout:
---

  • 10g BCAA 2:1:1
  • 5g Glutamine
  • 6g Citrulline Malate
  • 5g Creatine (Requires daily dosages to maintain levels. Typical loading protocol is 10g for 7 days and 5g thereafter. Some articles say 3g.)
  • 2g b-Alanine (requires daily dosages to maintain levels)
  • 2g Taurine (typical loading protocol is 4g (2gx2) for 7 days followed by 2g thereafter)
  • 1g Arginine-AAKG
  • pinch iodized salt
  • 20g Dextrose
  • kool-aid flavor squirts for flavor
  • Vitamin B (single pill, all versions)

    You can look up most of the info on this: Dr. Axe has some articles, with scientific citations, that are pretty information dense.

    Anecdotal Notes:
    ---

    I add salt because it actually helps with the flavor a bit and a little more sodium won't hurt me. I use iodized salt because, well, I might as well get iodine too (it's essential.)

    Vitamin B is vitamin B, but I add it because it works in conjunction with glutamine for protein synthesis.

    I take 5g Glutamine pre and 5g post. (10g total per day)

    I take 2g b-Alanine pre and 2g post. (4g total per day)

    Arginine is one of those "why?" supplements. I am still using it because I still have it. Before I was using Citrulline, Arginine is what I used as NO booster. Here's what I else I noticed with Arginine, when I started: my erections were faster and harder and my semen was larger volume and thicker, so those parts are fun. I don't know if citrulline has these effects as well as I haven't used it on its own. When I run out of arginine, I'll find out then. I only take 1g because any more gives me GI issues sometimes.

    Taurine is a known cell volumizer: it increased cell volume by allowing more water into the cells, it does this by altering the electrolyte balances. I don't know what effect on electrolyte intake is, but I can't find any studies that discuss it.

    Dextrose is part flavor masking and part fast energy.

    The Citrulline and Taurine, up front give a nice pump look to my workouts. mentally it feels good to see it and it does translate to some motivation to do more.

    It might not be a bad idea to add in a 1g of coconut water powder to this mix, I just haven't done so because I haven't sought it out.

    I used to add whey to mine (instead of the kool-aid) but since I started moving my workouts to lunch time instead of night time, I was too "sloshy."

    I get my supp powders for this from Myprotein.com

    Tips for mixing your own: multiple scoops, one at a time
    ---
    Get some small screw-lid containers like these. I say screw lid because press-fit lids get a little less fitted once powders get in the seal grooves.

    Put each powder in the container for daily use and store the bulk bags in your pantry. It's easier to take from the container than from the bag.

    Label each lid with the contents and add the weight of each scoop to the and/or the number of scoops for a serving of X grams on the lid as well. A small kitchen-grade gram scale is good for this.

    Note: many kitchen-grade scales won't register a change until 3g or more is added. they will register 1 g changes to existing weight, but won't go from zero to 1g. YMMV depending on the scale. this model, or one like it, is accurate to .1g which means it will register changes from zero, likely at least 1g.

    Tips for mixing your own: bulk mixing
    ---
    Conversely, instead of mixing daily, you could bulk weigh the ingredients in a larger container and take one larger scoop as a serving for the shake.

    Start by adding each ingredient for one serving. For example, in the above, a single serving would weigh 51g. Then find a scoop that will get you close to being that weight at full scoop or find a smaller scoop and do it twice, or three times (you get the picture.) most supps come with a scoop, so if you are like me, you have a bunch of scoops in a drawer.

    Now that you have your scoop size set, bulk weigh the ingredients in a larger container and shake it up to mix it. I recommend shaking in a very large container to ensure the powders are mixing instead of just moving up and down in a stack, and then transferring the contents to a smaller container.

    If you do it this way you can just add powdered flavor to the mix as well. gatorade sells powder mixes as well as koolaid. Adjust the dextrose for the sugar content of these things. Or just continue using the sugar free squirts.
u/Cawendaw · 1 pointr/Calligraphy

This is... really good for a second day doing calligraphy. Actually, it's pretty damn good for a second month doing calligraphy. Stop making the rest of us look bad by comparison, you talented jerk! >:( Ok, but you wanted tips on how to improve. So...

**

It's good that you're using a nib ladder, but it looks like you aren't using guidelines? Either that, you're using guidelines that are misaligned. One of these two things is causing irregular letter heights, and for each line of letters to sag downwards as it goes to the right.

Either way, it's an easy fix: when you make a nib ladder, align a straightedge to the bottom and draw a line to the opposite end of the page (a lot of people on here use a T-square or a rolling ruler; I usually just use another piece of paper because it's easier to tell if it's really perpendicular and also I am a cheapskate). Then do the same thing to the top of the nib ladder. If you want, you can also make a nib ladder on the opposite end of the page to check if the lines are really parallel. Do this for a whole page of lines.

When you've done this once, you can use that piece of paper to rule future practice papers: just make tick marks at the places the guidelines begin/end and use a straightedge to draw between them.

*

Other than that, it looks really good, especially for the second day! You have all the letterforms down, your strokes are confident, and you're keeping the nib at a consistent angle. I'm especially impressed with C, O, Q, and G—it was months before my circles were that even. some days they still arent! If not for your title, I'd have guessed you were at least 3 weeks along.
Bravo!*

>The letters S, X, and Z

Saaaaaaame :( I'd suggest studying the geometry of those letters. X and Z are basically diagonals drawn across a rectangle. Figure out the proportions of that rectangle (
x units wide by y units tall) and try to internalize them. Try drawing a bunch said rectangles and filling them with X's and Z's. Then have that in mind while writing them. It looks like you might already be doing this, since they're underlined? If so, ignore this entire paragraph except the last sentence. If not, I found this pdf to be mildly helpful, although not as helpful as I thought it would be when I first found it, if that makes sense. I'm afraid it's mostly going to come down to practice.

S is like that, but more complicated. There's guides out there that have it as circles inside of circles, or inside a half-square, but I could never keep it all in my head. So far, I don't have a better answer than "practice, compare with examplar, practice some more." There's some pretty awesome people in this sub, though, so maybe one of them will have better advice.



One final note that has nothing to do with calligraphy:

  • if you want to make a bulleted list

  • put a hyphen followed by a space, and it will turn into a bullet and become indented.

  • remember to double-tap enter after ending each line, otherwise reddit markup will ignore it.

  • also, always remember to flair your post! On desktop, there should be a little dropdown menu that allows you to do this. On mobile, it depends on your app. If you can't figure it out just type out the name of the flair you want in brackets inside the title, and it will be added automatically (it's too late to do that for this post, but you can do it for the next one). In this case, it would be [CC] or [Constructive Criticism].
u/shesanti · 3 pointsr/Parenting

I know that this is a touchy subject with a lot of parents... but have you had your child tested for any developmental delays? My son is High functioning Autistic and our journey to diagnosis began with the same issues you are experiencing. I could have written this post a year ago.

Mainly what stands out to me is: No awareness of danger, Difficulty following directions (namely if not concrete), Opposition to authority, lashing out physically.

I truly hope it doesn't offend you that is suggest this, I just know that my husband and I have agreed knowing what we know now I wish we could have gotten our boy help sooner. Since these aren't typical indicators of the ASD diagnosis we assumed the same, coming from a home daycare, being a boy, etc. Even if there isn't a diagnosis, talking with your pediatrician may help you to locate underlying issues that may be causing the behavior

Even if developmental delay is not the issue, there are a LOT of tricks you can use to help him in social situations. We've implemented a token system with our son using this chart: https://www.amazon.com/Kenson-Kids-Reward-Responsibility-15-5-Inch/dp/B00ULVNT10/ref=sr_1_1_sspa?ie=UTF8&qid=1539288689&sr=8-1-spons&keywords=i+can+do+it+behavior+chart&psc=1&smid=A2P5I4NW0QQAX1 The chart is excellent as it has pictures depicting the behavior which helps with younger kids. (reasoning sometimes is hit or miss at that age) Generally for each star earned he gets a ticket that he can use to earn screentime, candy, small toys. It's worked very well and it's a great reminder of expectations. You can also ask if the preschool uses "pivot praise" This is something we learned in ABA. If your child is exhibiting an unwanted behavior the teacher can choose a child who is modeling the correct behavior and praise that child, it normally involves a treat/gummy or some kind to the child modeling the correct behavior. Generally the child will notice the praise and strive to model the same behavior. Once the behavior is corrected they also get a treat.

If your child is visual learner there are books that teach no hitting/bullying that were super effective.

u/garimus · 1 pointr/DIY

Personally, I enjoyed the capability of my table-top drafting table that I ended up giving to a friend, but that may not always be the best suited since you either need a table or a somewhat stable surface to sit on (can work laying over your lap on a couch, for instance).

I always thought having a collapsible drafting table (stand folds up; think TV dinner tray), that would stand on its own, and be sturdy enough to not move when in use (locking positioning will be crucial). Given the fact that she paints, glass is probably the best idea. Also, angle adjustment will likely be very important to swap between a building surface for models, and a drafting surface for drawing.

This was the portable drafting table I had.

This is more what I always thought would be awesome to have, but it doesn't have the attached straight-edge; which I would deem necessary, but your girlfriend may not.

Hopefully those examples can lead you into building something appropriate.

Best of luck and have fun!

u/Symbiotic_insanity · 2 pointsr/TrollYChromosome

There are the usual's, set up a place to study, reduce distraction, yadda yadda, and that helps to a degree, but for me, I can't just have one place to study, sometimes my usual place just bugs the crap out of me, so have a few places you can study, like in your room, at the table, at maybe at the library or something similar, I used to love going to my local bookstore/coffee shop until the hipster crowd decided it was "in" and now it's crowded all the time (good for the store owners, not so much for me).

Next, take stock of the things that distract you. For me it's sounds more than anything, so I use the headphones and grey noise to mitigate that. Plus using the headphones habitually helps to train my brain that when their on, it's time to focus. There are also acoustic soundtracks on youtube and spotify that are designed for study sessions, give them a listen, you may find they help you focus better.

My biggest problem, and a huge reason that studying felt like smashing my head on a brick wall, is because I have issues with visual processing. Things that feel visually cluttered, too compact, or otherwise "off" will make it nearly impossible for me to register what I'm trying to read. This means I can read something a million times and it's just not going to sink in if it's not formatted properly. So, when you can, get your books in e-format and adjust the size of the font, this reduces the visual noise that comes with small font. Also download a blue light filter like lightbulb, and put on an antiglare screen protector to reduce eye strain. Some e-books/e-readers also have an audio option where you can listen to the text as you read along and this can really help a lot.

When e-books and audio books are not an option, try using a reading guide like this one, this one, or made out of a piece of paper with a slot cut in it to help you focus on just one line at a time. If your problem is visual clutter you'll notice a difference in a hurry using these methods.

On top of these methods, when you are reading/studying, take one paragraph at a time, read it, then write a single sentence that summarizes the paragraph. It doesn't have to be anything spectacular, it can be as simple as "birds dance and sing to attract mates" to summarize a paragraph describing the mating ritual of the peafowl. This forces you to break up large amounts of information into bits small enough to process easily. Then when you go back over your notes you're more likely to recall some of the finer details from the chapter, even if you didn't specifically write them down.

Most importantly, be patient with yourself. You know you are smart, your brain just processes differently so you have to find what works best for you. Once you do, you'll do a lot better and things will start to fall into place for you. But the journey to get there can be hard and very disheartening, so don't give up.

u/JonSzanto · 1 pointr/fountainpens

This is a bit of a kludge, but if you like the way the pen writes and want to have a bit more comfortable grip, it is a perfect size to slip on the little 'foam tubes' that are made to improve the comfort of a pencil grip. (Like these) You can just slip it on from the back end of the barrel (so you don't go over the inky nib) and right up over the gripping area, and then slip it off when you are done using the pen. When I wanted to write a couple of letters or something, this made it more comfortable.

This pen, and an identical model in a gun-metal blue, were the first two pens I purchased when I got interested in FPs about seven years ago. Purchased from Ron Zorn at Main Street Pens, whom I've remained friends with since then.

u/Accelephant · 2 pointsr/Handwriting

Hey! I'm not sure if this would be of any help to you, but they make special pencil grips for people who aren't used to holding a pencil correctly. You should check them out:

http://www.amazon.ca/The-Pencil-Grip-Crossover-TPG-17706/dp/B001SN8HPI

http://www.writingclaw.com/

Having one of these on your pencil at all time for a while should help. Otherwise, it really just comes down to making a conscious effort to correct how you write. The way we hold pencils is pretty automatic in that we do it without much thought. You have to put that thought into it in order to change it. Good luck!! :)

u/spellingerror · 2 pointsr/Dyslexia

They are several programs and apps that can help with spelling. I didn't have the luxury of using them but I am sure someone here can suggest some.

I learned how to write in cursive and how to use a calligraphy pen. It helped me write neater and kept me from writting down the page. It takes some time and practice and isn't for everyone.

You already mentioned overlays. I use these to help keep me from dropping or skipping lines when I read.

Color printer paper if you need to print something out for him to read. My color is goldenrod.

Another thing you may want to look at in the future is a text to speech app. I use dragon but it cost alot and they are some free or less expensive out there. This is because he could hear or see a word many times but not correlate it as the same word.

The last thing is a calendar and a note pad. Even though people know we have reading problems, we also have problems with memory. Having someway of keeping track when something is going to happen or due helps alot. He can use the note pad to just write down anything he needed to remember like meeting with friends or doing homework. Teach him this early and it will become 2nd nature.

u/Astutely · 1 pointr/Astronomy

Hey, sorry i'm a little late to the party. I just got the same telescope last week, and it is awesome! I just picked up a couple things.

  • A 2x Barlow Lens

    This One.

    and

  • A Moon Filter

    This One

    The moon is still fairly bright with the filter, so you may want to get the 25% instead of the 13%, although im happy with it.

    I also got this sky chart, but it's obviously not that necessary. Keep in mind, i'm still a newbie, so take my recommendations with a grain of salt. Have fun! :)
u/breezy727 · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

A bit more expensive, but so worth it if you travel

I have one of these in my kitchen and it's a great conversation piece, and super satisfying scratching off a new country every time you travel!

u/alifelongreader · 13 pointsr/migraine

Omigoodness I love the word crygraine, I'm totally stealing that.

I work with those all the way from two to young adult, and let me tell you, kids are way more kind and understanding about migraines than adults are.

Also, I don't know about you, but when I worked in the schools the fluorescent lights were terrible for my migraines. You can put up light filters (magnetic) over the lights (most come with a sheet saying they're not fire hazards) which really help. Bonus is that my high schoolers said it made school feel less like a prison (direct quote).
https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B001YT7DFQ/ref=sspa_mw_detail_2?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Alternatively, if you have a good school, you can ask them if you can take one bulb out in every light. That helps too. Or just get rid of the lights directly above your desk to give you a bit of a sanctuary.

Finally, a glare proof screen cover and the add on f.lux (if school will allow you to download it - they gave me permission) will seriously help when you have to use the computer.

u/kris10leigh · 1 pointr/52book

This is a good idea! They sell transparent ruler-type things (example) to be held over the page and moved downward as you read that can be really helpful for this, too. They're usually recommended for people with dyslexia or other eye/attention issues but are pretty awesome across the board (bonus - they make convenient bookmarks!).

u/Guano- · 2 pointsr/Darts

I figured it was for aiming, it is nice. The most I've done for helping with aiming is taking a hair tie and needle pinning it to the board in an attempt to get all three darts in.

Now that I think of it, I have a bunch of these that would be perfect for aiming stickers.

Good luck on your 180, I've only ever had 2. Today I switched my grip ever so slightly and was hitting 140's more than I usually do.

u/[deleted] · 3 pointsr/pics

I hope he got one of these for this birthday as well. Awesome cheap gift for a chemistry enthusiast.

u/chunkyice · 1 pointr/Breadit

If you want a digital scale for super precise measurement like decigram / centigram / milligram, you would need to get a pocket scale that's designed for chemist or pharmacist like this or this

However, precision scales like this will have a low maximum weight range. So if you want to be precise in measurement, you can get one precision scale and one kitchen scale (I recommend oxo brand)

u/JamesIgnatius27 · 1 pointr/iamverysmart

Jesus, these people are fucking demoralizing.

If you're a chemistry major, then you are probably smart, you probably like the subject, and did pretty well in Gen Chem. The biggest problem with OChem is that there are so many different mechanism. Dozens of different types of reactions, with different catalysts, producing different products, with a variety of structural characteristics. You'll need to learn all the different structures of the reactants, products, intermediates, and track every single atom as it transitions through every step. It seems impossible to remember it all, which is why people hate it.

But you don't need to learn everything all at once. OChem, if nothing else, is the one class that teaches students how to properly study (and that it's impossible to learn all the material the night before the test).

Here is my advice:

Go to every single class. Take notes by hand (putting away the phone). Review said notes from the previous day for 30 minutes before bed. Do all the homework. Review said notes from the previous week for a couple hours each the weekend.

If you do those things, you will have learned the material five separate times before you even study for the exam for real. Once by hearing the prof, once by writing it down in your notebook, once by reviewing your notes later that night, once in the homework, and once in a weekly review. And if any of the material does not make sense after your weekend review session, go to the professor's office hours and ask.

If you do those things, in OChem and PChem, I guarantee you will do well in the class.

(Source: Got an A and a B+ in OChem, an A and a B in PChem)

P.S. A molecular modelling kit can also be a very useful tool for visualizing organic structures and understanding the reactions.

u/homemadecheese · 2 pointsr/travel

go for it! I used this map; it's 24"x36" but they have larger sizes too. And if you're only interested in Europe, they have a Europe specific map. I would watch a few videos about modge podge if you haven't done it before because it can get messy, especially when dealing with larger prints. Also, make sure your cork board isn't too thick for the frame; I think I used 1/4" thick cork board. This was the original inspiration for my map

u/AdaAstra · 2 pointsr/Astronomy

For a starter book to get the basics of stargazing, I would recommend Nightwatch: A Practical Guide To Viewing the Universe or Turn Left At Orion. They don't have real detailed sky maps, but they give good representations of some of the major constellations and names.


For star maps, I use Sky & Telescope's Pocket Sky Atlas or Orion's DeepView Star Map. These ones are good for more detailed star maps and require a few basics to figure out. Or you can just match the stars up to known stars and just stumble your way around (which is not a bad learning method either).

u/skittles_rainbows · 2 pointsr/autism

As a follow-up. The theory of different colors for reading has pretty much been debunked, but he may be able to focus better on different colors. Here is a pack from Amazon that has clear and different colors.

u/Oppiken · 3 pointsr/needadvice

These look dumb but I used one of these growing up to improve my writing. It forces you to learn how to hold a pen/pencil properly to get the cleanest writing.

After that, it's just time spent on practicing and developing the muscles in your hand so it doesn't get sore after writing half a page.

u/Nuranon · 8 pointsr/travel

Search for world map posters (on amazon or so) and then get a nice frame (depending on the map the frame will be more expensive). The standard poster size is 61cm x 91.5cm.

This is a good example (Amazon US, you can see a bit more on the customer pictures). 10-15$ seems to be what most posters (and I assume) of those dimensions and quality cost.

Or if you are willing to spend a bit more for something a bit nicer and possibly bigger then you might wanna look into National Geographic's World Maps although I have honestly just assume those are nicer, NG is known for their great maps but I its also owned by 21st Century Fox/Murdoch, so no clue if quality is still what it used to be.

u/urban_ · 3 pointsr/travel

Yep! Just went back to my Amazon history, here is the link to the map: World Executive Poster Sized Wall Map (Tubed, World Map). I absolutely love it. I paired it up a rustic, smooth grain frame, similar to this one (but in a 3x4).

If you want to limit or filter additional fluorescent light, there are these shades that you can purchase online. They attach over top the existing light with magnets and give additional dimming/filtration to flurescent lights. I have used these over my desk for a while and they help me a lot. They come in a pack of 4. I just had to show the package information to someone in facilities to get an OK and then request that they install them over top my desk.

Unfortunately I can’t find much on knitting with arthritis. Perhaps it would be worthwhile posting to the r/rheumatoid subreddit, they are very helpful there. And r/knitting has a lot of subscribers as well so hopefully you will get some good ideas there as well.

u/antisocialmedic · 18 pointsr/CrappyDesign

It's not dildo shaped. It's broom shaped. Do we need to ban young girls from playing with cylyndrical objects?

Should young girls not be able to use electric toothbrushes or squiggle writers because they are oblong and vibrate? Because people definitely use those things to masturbate. But like that broom, they're innocent items and not fucking sex toys.

Who cares if a kid uses something for a different purpose than intended? If we're going to get outraged over innocent items that kids (male or female) can masturbate with, buckle up because the list is long and we'll be here for a while.

In general, you can just buy stuff from Amazon.

Like lab coats.

Or those gold stickers we used to have to work hard to get (http://www.amazon.com/Teacher-Created-Resources-Stars-Stickers/dp/B000YABDEI/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1347649944&sr=8-1&keywords=gold+stickers): 120 gold stars for 4.05 (incl. free shipping with orders over 25$).

You could get a parallel straightedge board. I got one a few years ago but haven't gotten much use out of it since they really don't teach manual drafting at my engineering school.

Or if you have the space and want to get REALLY fancy, a drafting machine. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Drafting_machine

Neither of these are particularly good for notebooks though.

To match message with medium, I was expecting it to be written with one of the vibrating pens that were popular in the mid to late 90s. They had a small ball point pen cartridge in the bottom and the top was an oversized weighted spinner top.

Thinking Science - Zap? Sorry I can't find a better link, I'm on my cell.

Anyways, I remember the light section focused on lasers mirroes and color filters. The electricity section had you making circuits that allowd you to power fans and lights and stuff, plus you could "see" the electricity flowing through the wires.

I want to day that you were "hatching" animals in the sounf section, but that is the section that I have the least recollection of.

Hope this helps.

Edit: I'm so excited tgat some one else might know this game that I continued searching and found some images

Your kid will grow up into a world of typing most things by the 5th grade. It's not a bad thing, i've been in the same situation since kindergarten. I would say improve by getting college ruled paper and teaching him about spacing his letters and basically have him write out the alphabet and coach him on correctly placing the characters on the line to improve neatness. My first grade teacher gave me one of these and it improved me
a bit http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00FQQRRIQ/ref=pd_aw_sims_1?pi=SS115

My Grandfather has awful adhd and doesn't really write at all. My dad has really bad adhd and writes basically sideways, he happened to be a silicon valley business man so typing devices have been available to him his whole life. I also have adhd as well. At a young age i found a special interest in computers because i could type faster than other students and it was rewarding because with my handwriting, keyboards were essential. Here I am a senior in high school who has worse handwriting than a 4th grader. I was given a packet to fill out to present to my schools college counselor for a meeting regarding letters of recommendation for private colleges. I tried my hardest and wrote about one character per a second (probably slower) and still handed in a messy document. If it becomes a problem never give up because some that would not be fun to run into the same problems as i do.

I am not a lefty, but my teacher mom says that 3 sided grips for writing utensils helps those learning to write for the first time. Also you can find triangular pencils and crayons! https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00FQQRRIQ/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_TSliDbHYTHFWV

u/evilkittie · 3 pointsr/MakeupAddiction

For the eyeliners, or even smaller brushss, have you tried those blocky pencil grips? They're pretty angular and you can put more than one on if you need more grip space. I don't know how difficult they would be to put on initially, though.

Edit: Revlon also has a new-ish mascara line in a bottle similar to the Revolution lip glosses. Here's a random blog post I found going over the formulas.

Easy to make: print off the images you want, and then put in one of these: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Capsules-Containers-Holders-Different-Available/dp/B01GC17LRK

You might want to pad it out with cardboard.

  1. I had one of these to help me write properly.

The device on the right here is a parallel ruler. The idea is it slides perpendicular to the lines you draw, so that you can draw parallel lines. Like this.

u/drelliesattler93 · 2 pointsr/pens

Have you considered getting a pen grip made from a gel or cushion-y material for your Staedtler Fineliners, as you seem to like those the best but they hurt your fingers? I've seen tons of options at office supply stores -- something like this, perhaps?

https://www.amazon.com/Classics-Pencil-Assorted-1-5-Inch-TPG-16412/dp/B00GN1YN8U/

or

u/Vathsade · 1 pointr/boardgames

Found them on Amazon.ca, available in lots of slightly different sizes:

https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B01GC17LRK/ref=cm_sw_r_sms_awdb_t1_cROMAb8DT0TQT

Alternatively, you can buy the Fan kit, which I managed to get from here, when it was briefly in stock. It will likely come in stock again, just not very often. Add yourself to the notification list.

Plus side of this is that it adds a 5th player to the game.

For fluorescent lights, they make these light filters which are a LIFESAVER. A few years ago I was working in an office with horrible lights so I put these up and it fixed everything. https://www.amazon.com/Educational-Insights-Fluorescent-Filters-Tranquil/dp/B001YT7DFQ/

u/mongoOnlyPawn · 1 pointr/Aquariums

I've used lighting panels for recessed ceiling lights similar to these.

They're hard to cut, so I score them and then snap them instead of cutting with a saw.

One 2'x4' panel will cover about 3 standard 20gallon tanks, so it's a cheap way to get covers. You can replace them with glass if you like one tank at a time.

Since they're made to hang with just the edges supported, they're stiff enough in a smaller size for a tank.

I didn't delete my comment, it just had so many downvotes it got buried. Either that, or a mod deleted it, I have no idea.

Look, I get it, you're a nice guy. It was a quick comment that OP should learn how to draw and paint or be destined be another script kiddie that spends a day trying to find the exact right photo reference to copy when if they could link up their hand with their brain they unleash their imagination.

But I'm a dick so don't sweat it. To prove my dickishness, here's a fun piece of unsolicited dick advice: Don't forget to top off your [supply] (https://www.amazon.com/Teacher-Created-Resources-Stars-Stickers/dp/B000YABDEI/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1481505706&sr=8-2&keywords=gold+star+stickers)

Yep! Mine was orange. I can't believe they still make it.

Judging by the size and shape in pictures, I think you could just get those rubber grips for pencils. https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B00GN1YN8U/

Try using a guide. It will suck at first but you can retrain your grip and eventually not need it.

Penguin onesie - $55.89 and she promises a terrible dancing video if she gets it.

Calligraphy kit - $33.99

Penguin-opoly - $24.99

Poster - $19.99

There's $20 leftover for the small things on her list. I thought the necklace would work but it goes over with S/H. gah.


Edit: She commented that she wants this book which we could add onto these items.

Squiggle Wiggle. The vibrating pen. There's zero way this isn't a vibrator for girls too young to secure a PO box. At least in my experience ...
