Hoping my job contract gets extended another six months, the difference it will make it my life is unmeasurable.

Besides the antiwork rhetorics we may spouse, one needs to recognize the necessity of material support that a salary brings.

Hope you get stability in your job to not worry about unemployment.

As a job, it's one of the most bearable ones around. Probably do an hour, maybe two, of work a day and get paid enough to cover my expenses for the month. I dread the idea of getting a full time job.

Got my first vaccine yesterday, second is scheduled for mid May. I kind of like wearing masks tbh. I like being partially obscured. I'll probably keep wearing masks even after they officially say it's fine to stop.

I really hope we can make it culturally acceptable. Not only does it seem like there is still risk of spreading, even between inoculated and asympotmatic people but also just feels like a good call, especially in really dense places like on public transit and stuff.

Agreed - I haven't really been sick in the last year. The only thing that changed was wearing a mask. Sorry for the late reply!

I think civilisation and collapse are the same thing.

I already like my new job because the food is really good but last night while we were closing one of the guys started playing some hardcore & punk, and then the boss started playing some even heavier stuff. So now I love it.

I know it should be the bare minimum but the boss also told me I did a good job tonight and I really appreciated that. I very rarely got positive feedback at other jobs and almost none from my family growing up so it means a lot more to me than people probably think.

I've got pretty major life changing things happening in the next few months.

All of the changes are positive, yet my brain has decided that panic attacks are clearly the best response to change.

AS a side note, I almost made it two years without a full-blown panic attack. Probably my longest record in the last ~15 years

Been feeling real lonely lately and a foray back into online dating certainly has not helped. IDK how, but I need to learn how to meet new people outside of an app. I'm a rather awkward and shy person, but at least IRL I can express myself somewhat well, whereas in messaging I just seem so boring and I have no idea how to even begin a conversation in that sphere so I usually don't get around to meeting the people I'm matching with. Sacrificing the security of isolation takes a lot of effort from me, but... I can't keep feeling this way. I think there's some casual bike ride groups in my area so I'll probably start attending those...

Dating apps are a scam. Ditch the phone. Depending on where you live, looser covid restrictions means more opportunities for stranger interactions. Pick a hobby, join a group, mingle, get rejected, and then come back to raddle where you are loved for merely existing as screen name. Good luck!

I feel you on the loneliness part, I've been longing for intimacy too. / Joining a casual bike group sounds dope!

As I was planting 2 new raspberry bushes (Anne Gold) yesterday two of the neighbors across the street were areating and dethatching their hideous, fossil fuel fed, wasteland, monoculture grass lawns. Makes me glad I'm a "lifestylist" and could celebrate doing what I love and not see it as a "waste of time." I did appreciate the irony of it nevertheless.

Anybody tried the new Kung Fu?

I need new stuff to watch real bad this weekend, suggestions welcome.

I've planted about as much as I can with the space and energy and money that I have.

My baby dragonfruits are all doing well, which is nice.

I would happily learn Kung Fu but that takes resources I don't have either I think.

I've been watching The Irregulars on Netflix. Bad teen drama with supernatural elements. I don't know that I would recommend it, but I do enjoy the show's take on Sherlock Holmes and Watson. I won't spoil anything, though!

Uh. Have you tried watching Mob Psycho?

The Irregulars

I think I tried it and it didn't work. Depends a lot on my mood at the time.

Mob Psycho

I haven't. Is it any good?

So I started hanging with the ex again (not my wisest decision) and have since gained 10 pounds. Coincidence or something more sinister?!

Absolutely something sinister at work here. I recommend an exorcist—wait, exorcizist—wait, no, exercise. I recommend exercise.

If it bothers you. If not, you do you, friend.

snack wrote

I think you might be onto something here... I'd totally watch work-out videos of an exorcizing excercist / exercising exorzist!

As a non-native english speaker writing those last four words were a hell of an exercise in itself wtf

This week was school vacation. I've been getting really into chess recently, which is an interesting game. It kinda carries an image of elitism around it, but to my surprise it's been fairly easy to learn and play. Of course, like most hobbies, you can spend ungodly amounts of money on it, but I've managed to improve quite a bit just with a internet connection.

i had an idea for a poster with a caption that says something like “the only good infinite growth is the growing of trees” but i feel like someone must have done that one before.
