Sorry for the long post. This is the follow up to my original post here: Link
Hello again Reddit! I'd first like to thank everyone who commented on my original post. I cannot explain to you the relief in knowing I'm not alone in this, and your advice was extremely helpful.
It's been a whirlwind of a week, but I can proudly say I've officially gone NC with crazy antivaxxer mom and dad. Honestly, I've never felt more relieved.
I knew after the post I had to do something asap. I decided at the end of my last post that it wasn't worth keeping the car. I texted my manager at work sunday and she greenlighted a PTO day for me the following monday. First thing I did was go straight to my bank the moment it opened and explained my situation. The clerk I worked with was extremely understanding and helped me plan a strategy. I couldn't ditch the car until Saturday, and I didn't want Entitled Dad figuring out what I was up to until it was too late. She suggested we keep the old account up since he could see it, but move most of my money to a new account though a withdrawal/deposit so it just looked like I paid rent or something. While we worked the transaction I texted Entitled Dad 'agreeing' to meet next week Thursday to sign the promissory note. This smug asshole replied that that was fine and said "It's good you're coming to your senses." I'm amazed I didn't pull something with how hard my eyes rolled.
Once I finished up at the bank, I thanked the clerk and moved on to my next move: Obviously I was going to need a new car. I'm sure Entitled Dad thought he wiped me out with that $2.5k. He didn't have access to my savings account, so he didn't have a clue how much money I actually had saved up. Late Sunday night I inquired about a lot of used cars in my area, and got a response back from a dealer who had a car I liked with decent milage right in my price range. After the bank I drove over there, and after a quick inspection and look at the car's history, I went ahead and bought it. While I waited for all the paperwork to go through, I tapped away on my phone and extricated myself from everything I shared with them. Car insurance, health insurance- everything. I decided in order to go full NC, I needed to vanish from their life completely.
Car purchased, I moved on to my next move: Changing my phone number. Entitled dad still had me on his phone plan. I did worry that I'd have to get a new phone, since *technically* he bought it back in december (I gave him the money, and he went into the store.) Luckily, since I paid the full amount and it wasn't on a payment plan, I got to keep my phone. Score! Getting on my own account and switching everything took all of 15 minutes, and I walked out a free human.
I went home, and talked to my landlord about the event. She lives with me (it's a shared house) and said if Entitled dad comes knocking for me she'll call the cops- which is super cool of her. My manager (who knows my situation, and is a real MVP) helped me pick up my new car on Tuesday. That just left getting rid of the Prius.
Obviously, I'd need help. I couldn't drive the car there and just get a cab back since Entitled Dad's house is way out in the sticks. I don't have a lot of friends since I moved here during the lockdown and haven't done a lot of going out and socializing even though I'm vaccinated. So I asked my partner and my rock through this whole nightmare. Since he can't drive long distances due to a health problem, he asked some of our mutual friends (See: his friends who I've only hung out with a handful of times.) I didn't think anybody would do it, since I don't exactly live close to my parents, and I needed to drop off the car in the dead of night to ensure my safety. To my surprise, multiple people came forward saying they'd help.
Reddit, I cannot impress upon you the relief in just knowing I have allies. I nearly burst into tears when I got the texts volunteering to not only meet me in the middle of nowhere at the dead of night then drive my sorry ass back home, but offers to have me stay with them instead just in case Entitled Dad tried to hunt me down. It just felt so good to know people cared about what I was going through and wanted to help, and I felt so deeply moved by their kindness and generosity.
After the most nerve wracking week of my life, I woke up at 2am on Saturday morning and met my partners in not-really-a-crime at a gas station near Entitled Dad's house. We successfully dropped off the Prius, and once I got back home I immediately turned around and drove to my Brother's place in the next state to meet up with my sister and hang out with my adorable little baby nieces.
The best part is, while I was hanging out with the kids, Entitled Dad called my sister LIVID that I wasn't answering the phone and demanded to know how the Prius got to his house. My sister looked at me dead in the eye, as she told Entitled Dad that she has no idea what he's talking about, and that I'd been at my brother's place since Friday. When he demanded that he talk to me, she said he couldn't because I had already left, and hung up the phone. She told me over a nice bottle of bourbon that she'd also been planning on going NC with them for a while, and she was so proud of me for having the strength to pull all of this off.
Now I'm just straight chilling, looking forward to the future with my court appearance for a legal name change looming just over the horizon and following up on a couple applications I put out for some higher paying jobs in my field. I can't say for sure that they won't try *something* but Entitled Dad is very limited in what he can do. Really, it feels like I've dropped a huge weight. They really caused me a great deal of pain and suffering throughout my years on this planet, and it feels great to finally be free.
TLDR: Entitled Dad tried to extort me for a lot of money over a car because he thought I couldn't fight back. He was wrong, and I have even more people in my corner than even *I* realized.
That's the end of my tale, Reddit. Thank you for all your previous comments, and support. I really appreciate it. Just remember, even if you think you're all alone, more people care about you than you might realize. Thanks for reading <3

2021.09.20 04:02 Complete-Salad2314 My Essential Phone (PH1) is no longer supported... LF a new mid-priced, small, sturdy, functional smartphone
I don't need a photographer level camera, but a decent one would be nice.
A big battery life, and large storage (or at least an SD slot) are also important for me. Possibly a good mic for voice recording, but that's a low priority.
I mainly use my phone for Googling, GPS, messaging, email, basic social media, a little YouTube, stuff like that. A ton of music listening via Bluetooth. I don't watch videos or game at all. So it doesn't have to be real powerful. Just something stable that won't crash (I've had a lot of issues with this PH1 being unstable and glitchy).
I'd like it to be small and convenient to carry around/use single-handed. And can hopefully take a drop because I'm pretty clumsy. Nothing flashy or sexy, just what works.
Price point - $300-600
Thanks for your time and input!

Hi there!, so as the title says I want to know how I can move all of my Brave data from Windows to Linux (Manjaro). The problem is that I can't be in both OS at the same time since Linux is on another partition. Any idea of what to do? Thanks!
