    [–] Americans Of Reddit, What Is Something That You’ve Been Envious Of That Other Countries Have? ferrisweelish 1 points ago in AskReddit

    I've been living and working in the UK for almost two years now. We get 25 days Paid leave, plus the option to buy up to 10 more if we'd like. I'm going to be taking a 3 week holiday in August and will still have 3 weeks left to take.

    Women are entitited to 1 year of maternity leave- 3 months are paid, 3 months with half pay, and after that you get social security benefits for the remianing time on maternity.

    I don't own a car here. I can walk most everywhere, or can take the bus on the rare occasion I need to go out of town. It's also made me less lazy. Before the thought of walking 20 min. to get somewhere wasn't even something I'd consider. Now I walk if its less than 25 minutes, bike if its more, and take the bus only if I really need to. But also everything is just so much closer that I don't even need to consider needing a car.

    [–] What was the most confusing school subject that you tried very hard on, but still did bad in class? ferrisweelish 1 points ago in AskReddit

    Calculus. I was able to get as far a pre-calc in high school, than had to take calculus in university. Attended tutoring sessions went to all the classes and still barely managed to pass. It just wouldn't click.

    [–] Non-British people, what's something you want clarifying from our culture? ferrisweelish 2 points ago in AskReddit

    Here in Jersey (Channel Islands NOT new Jersey) there's a cream tea/dance/royal wedding watch party at the town hall.

    So I guess some people are excited?

    [–] What non-standard house feature is a must have for your dream house? ferrisweelish 2 points ago in AskReddit

    This! We have only one drawer in our kitchen and barely any cabinets. And no normal cutlery organizer fits it in. I found a handmade one at a charity shop and it's the only one that fits. It drives me insane every time I have to take out all the spice bottles to find the one in the back.

    [–] [Hair removal] What do you use for facial hair removal that won't cause irritation? ferrisweelish 1 points ago in SkincareAddiction

    I did quite a bit of sessions, more than 10. I just went every month and it was only $20 for the face so for me it was worth it. It made the hair on my face a lot thinner and lighter but didn't make it go away completely. I think it has to go with the type of hair though, because on my legs and under arms most of my hair still hasn't returned after 10 sessions each.

    [–] What innocent question has someone asked you that secretly crushed you a little inside? ferrisweelish 6 points ago in AskReddit

    SO much money! For me, w/o health insurance an initial consult cost $180, and than $100 for each visit after. Than if you end up not liking your dermatologist, than you'd have to find another one and pay the initial consult fee again. And my dermatologist prescribed me this cream that cost around $300 (Can't remember the name) and it didn't even work.

    I tread as well on eyebrows and upper lip occasionally. But I notice that when I go the full face I tend to break out :(

    [–] How to fix a super salty daal ferrisweelish 1 points ago in IndianFood

    That's a fantastic idea. Never thought of that. Though to be fair the idea of making my own roti's or parathas actually terrifies me lol. Perhaps when I get a bit more confident in my cooking skills

    [–] How to fix a super salty daal ferrisweelish 2 points ago in IndianFood

    Yea I ended up adding quite a bit more daal and freezing the leftovers. At least I've got some extra meals out of it :D

    [–] How to fix a super salty daal ferrisweelish 2 points ago in IndianFood

    Tell me about it! I forgot to taste and accidentally added it twice.

    [–] How to fix a super salty daal ferrisweelish 1 points ago in IndianFood

    Thanks! I ended up adding more channa daal which helped balance it out, and thankfully still edible!

    [–] How to fix a super salty daal ferrisweelish 1 points ago in IndianFood

    True! This time was a fluke though, lol I accidentally added it twice because I'd forgotten that I already added it in the beginning.

    [–] I’ve noticed with these Pure Romance people, they refer to themselves as “sexual health educators” ferrisweelish 4 points ago in antiMLM

    That's so annoying. I'm an actual certified health education specialist with a masters in health education, and I know classmates who actually got an additional certification in sexual health education. This is an actual profession, not just something you can pretend to be because you sell this shit.
