Like Amazon, Facebook finally caved in and decided to ruin a perfectly good word by making it their company name

Very true. Perhaps they'll flash before my eyes instead of my life at the end.

I got my degree after all, I'm looking for a job now. Also partying all weekend :)

My ram is slowly falling apart. I activated a linux kernel module to test what usable ram I have left at each boot (at least that's what I think it does..?). It's not great, everything's kinda broken. My laptop's almost 9 years old now.

Congrats on the degree. Hope you get trashed and have a blast partying the night away.

It's time. You know what to do ...

Send it to live on a farm, where it can run free with other laptops, and chase wild mainframes.

Excited for Halloween my kiddo has been talking about Halloween almost daily since the last one. Going to be bummed when its done.

Also how would I leverage the internet to make friends/ get invited to a dnd group? I checked out bumble which has a "BFF mode: but it's super dead. Someone told me to check out tinder but I think they were pulling my leg. I checked out meetup but that was more event based than anything else. Or like how do you make friends without the internet? All I want is like platonic speed dating, why isn't that a thing?

I ended up using tinder to find friends lol. I was just super clear in my profile and when matching what I was looking for. I'm now meeting someone in a couple weeks for some board games. Feels kind of weird to meet friends on a dating site but we'll see how it goes. There are a surprising amount of people on there using it to find platonic friends (some in addition to dating but some solely for that reason (at least according to their bios)). There is also a surprising number of commies on there.

On an unrelated note taking my first super baby steps into the vegan thing. I tried oat milk today for the first time. I really enjoy it which surprised me. I also remembered a bud made me some tofu tacos that were bomb so I'm getting the recipe from him for that. (tacos are like a staple to me so I am excited) Also bought a few other vegan replacement things. I was surprised to find out that Naan wasn't inherently vegan (though there are vegan versions), I thought bread would be a no-brainer but it isn't always, made the mistake of buying pretzel bread at the store. Beginning to realize I have no idea how 90% of my food is made.

For dnd specifically: online, maybe check roll 20? I know they offer an online tabletopping services, and might have resources for joining online groups. In real life, you can try adventure league, where you can go to play dnd with a bunch of randos and play with friends, though that's if you have an adventure league group around where you are.

On the internet in general...I suppose you could look for a forum site on an interest of yours, and build connections over shared interests? Or find yourself a discord group for the same thing?

Also there is a video my kid likes to watch that just give me such a weird feeling. Not in like a bad way but just borderline surreal. Like something about it makes me feel unreal. Anyway I feel like I have to share it with someone so here. If you watch it through the 2 minute mark you'll get a good feel for what its like.

There is also this kid's book that lowkey makes me feel like a cannibal called "The Skin you Live in?" . I linked the title to a video of the author reading it. Just check out the part at about 1:50.

Yeah there is something lowkey disturbing about the rhythm and format of that cartoon. I did not like it...

Definitely drank a little bit too much this week, which is funny because I was being really healthy last week -- exercising, sleeping, etc. This week I am just feeling like garbage. I can't even believe its friday. I literally feel like it was tuesday yesterday. I spent at least one day this week just laying in bed with my dog while "working".

Also my partner wants to buy a new car that will be a bit larger than our current one and its such a daunting task; I'm really struggling with it. Last night I was awake until like 2am just reading about cars and searching for one nearby. I really fucking hate cars. I wish we didn't need one.

I have a right-wing friend from many years ago that is a facebook friend. He literally only comments on political shit he doesn't agree with me on. The last time he did that was this week and I was like "I think Facebook is messing with our friendship. I think Facebook is only showing us each other's posts when you disagree with me." and told him I was miffed that he only ever fights with me and we don't engage at other times. My husband laughed and said I shamed him into behaving nicely. But, to me, it's just another thing to add to my list of reasons why the internet was a mistake. Facebook has this whole thing about "engagement" and you see posts that are more engaging. Well, fights are very engaging. So instead of liking each others' kid photos, we're fighting over vaccines and agriculture instead because the algorithm manipulated what we see from each other. In person, before Facebook, we would talk about stuff we mostly got along on and when something was contentious, we'd disagree for a spell but then turn our attention to other things. You know, like humans do. The machines controlling our friendships these day suck.

I've been thinking about getting noise canceling headphones specifically for such moments. Do you have any you recommend?

Myself and a friend are looking to get a flat together. It's a bit awkward, cause we both live in two separate places, and the place we want to move to is in a third place, but we're trying to make it work. We both want to leave where we are for a variety of reasons, and luckily both have jobs that have opportunities in said third town, which makes things easier.

I cannot escape the reality that part of me needs 'faith'.

My main faith however is that people will choose anarchy when the state fails.

I know it is not rational but I cannot live thinking that the world won't change and this is all their is, it hurts me.
