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.
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 think civilisation and collapse are the same thing.
Hate to link to the bad site but I saw a writeup in r/collapse that was making similar argument this week.
I feel you should mod f/RadicalDoggos
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
Anybody tried the new Kung Fu?
I need new stuff to watch real bad this weekend, suggestions welcome.
I think I tried it and it didn't work. Depends a lot on my mood at the time.
I haven't. Is it any good?
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.
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.
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.
Hoping my job contract gets extended another six months, the difference it will make it my life is unmeasurable.
