I subconsciously slack on the job where I can. Maybe for you is difficult, bc you may have a very specific and physical task.

I despise the simple fact of selling my time for money.. I had some strategies to dropout, but I still need to figure out stuff

Fridge/freezer finally got fixed a couple of days ago; we moved here 2 months ago and had to wait 5 weeks before the repairman could get the part he needed to get; over $200 worth of groceries spoiled and the landlord sent us a fucking mini fridge that stopped working well after, like, 3 days as if that was some sort of reasonable substitute.

Still pissed about that because it found a way to haunt me: veggie burgers melted and froze again and I didn't even realize it until I tried heating them; they were a misshapen, half fused lump, didn't care until I heated them up again. Cold in the middle, warm everywhere else. Terrible.

Whole patties melted into each other to form some hideous, not-so-easily-evenly-heated beast. They were circular, but after melting and freezing again, they were folded into one another. I get 30 minutes for lunch and there wasn't a lot I could both prep and eat in a reasonable time frame.

Still ended up using around 20 minutes, but at least I didn't have to work hungry for an additional 5 hours.

okay, so i've been hearing a lot of stupid people talk about how the democrats are/have been powerless to help on women's abortion rights in the us and how we need to vote to make it all better....but, that's a fucking lie. I want to come up with a ridiculous list of things the democrats could do so I can just copy-paste it everytime i hear the argument. My list so far is:

  1. They could actually put real pressure on Manchin to vote along party lines, saying "you can't caucus with us and no down-ballot fundraising is available to you ever again if you don't vote with us." (Could also kick his DiNO ass out of the party).
  2. Biden could fill the empty federal judgeships with pro-choice judges so that the abortion cases have less chance to filter upwards (there are like 70 open slots to appoint)
  3. They could expand the size of the supreme court and pack it with pro-choice judges
  4. The bill they failed to pass? They could start acting like republicans and forcing a vote on every tiny piece. Make Republicans vote against rape victims. Force a vote that says abortion is legal if both the mother and baby will die and force those fuckers to vote for death. No wiggle room.
  5. They could stop being cowards and get rid of the filibuster rule that is making them powerless.

Anyone got any other ideas? I really want to highlight that it isn't that they are powerless, it's that they are doing nothing...and then to beg the question, why are they doing nothing?

they could support progressive candidates like Cisneros over anti-choice ones like Ceullar in Texas.

Good news is that the US economy is probably in recession and "retirees" are panicking. Hence the rush to force procreation to fuel Growth™.

i've been reading Anarchy and Anarchy Works and i think that anarchism might be the ideology that i like the most (i used to be a communist), though i'm still not sure if i should vote or not (╥_╥)

Breakdown of my ballot:

  • 12x Democratic
  • 12x DOOM
  • 4x Green
  • 2x Indie
  • 1x Republican

Did not take too long. Sort of skimmed through it. Made sure to vote against the fash and for the underdogs. Wrote in DOOM when the candidates were all pro-police.

Thanks.

It went terribly, but I didn't want that job anyway (not that I really want any job at all) Got my second in person one tomorrow. Much more prepared this time around. We will see how it goes.

Ugh, work.

I hate when people always asks why I look so tired or if something happened. Damn, I can't look like shit? Am I killing your vibe? Great, now go f+CK yourselves...

People expecting me to be functional on every aspect of my life, I can't even get drunk or stoned, I don't feel like it so my junkie "friends" (probably not friends, but you got what you got) are always pissed that I wanna party hard.

I wish I had a more direct action project to engage right now, I need to release some tension to get my life back. The mutual aid project is dead, my poor leadership skills plus lack of interest by others (well I am trying not to be harsh on them, but if you expect to deal with thief's and junkies and you don't live up to your 3rd world swag don't say to me that you are the ultimate anarchist).

I am not on my lowest, but people think that I am soft because I speak soft, and who said that soft need to be condescending or passive. It's like lying between the rock and a hard place, Lumpen&Bougie.

I don't know what future I am seeking for myself. Never knew

Ye may be soft spoken but some of us can pick up on dynamite vibes ;)

Seems to me that the future is always someone else's. Emphasis on one. I think that's what some anarchists are getting at with projectuality and prefiguration, we're attempting to continuously "unforclose" futures and are never quite satisfied with anything that suggests a narrowing of options. Especially when it comes down to one.

Sorry to hear the mutual aid project is dead. Sounded like something that gave you the occasional glimpse of a broadening of possibilities. No fun when even that goes away.

Don't needlessly complicate it. There's only one question that needs to be answered regarding the future.

I feel that slowly I am getting my life back. I created this account during the early pandemic lockdowns bc I always had raddle as a cool place to meet anarchists, so I had been coping with Raddlers.

I still feel depressed most of the time, my social life is so disfuncional right now, my self esteem is low as ever too. I never had the guts to live like a gutter punk. maybe I am frustrated by it, maybe I have some never diagnosed disability that make me not wanting a normal life
