I got: Dark cloud and Dark Chronicle (ps2 games), calligraphy set, lebkuchen (German biscuits), a d20 lamp, gin liqueurs, cosmetic face mask thingies, Bath bombs, and one friend made me a hanging thing from a stick he found in the woods, some string, and 52 paper cranes.

So for context, I've been on here for two of those five years, though was definitely more of a lurker the first bit.

Not so much changed as refined/deepened. I ended up on raddle after my political shift (which had a lot to do with leaving the US and breadtube) away from ancap and all that nonsense. I still wouldn't put any labels on my anarchism (more so I dont have enough theoretical knowledge on any one camp to truly say), but I'd definitely say raddle has probably nudged me towards the anti-civ/degrowth/individualist aspects of anarchism over others. Still not as praxis orientated as I'd like to be, but it's a new year soon, so who knows.

Ooh I'll have to give them a gander.

Honestly, utilitarian notebooks are the ones I actually write in. Especially those black and white speckled composition notebooks I used in school. Love em.

The problem with pretty ones is that I end up getting them and never writing in them. I feel like I need to write perfectly in them to keep them in their pretty state.

Ive recently become enamoured with the idea of being a really planned person, like someone who has like planners on how their days/weeks/mo this will be generally going. Obviously with lots of unstructured play/rest times where nothing is planned.

Don't know why. I think I just really like the look of some of the planner covers, and saw a YouTube video of someone with very pI'mrewty notebooks olanners, tape, writing, etc. I'm a sucker for pretty stationary.

I've slowly deleted a lot of my social media, with the most recent one being Facebook, and before that Instagram and Reddit. I was surprised with how easy it was to forget about them honestly, with how much of a build up I gave it. It's sorta nice just not being inundated all the time by them.

I wouldn't say I live in a more offline world necessarily. Outside of any gaming I do, im still quite heavy usage on YouTube and their environment (their new shorts aspect is how I spend most of my free time, it's lethal). But it'll probably be the next thing if I can build up the willpower.

Don't see why you couldn't eat vegan at Chanukah. There are a lot of vegan recipes for traditionally Jewish foods. The only thing about chablnukah is to eat fried foods (like latkes), which can be vegan, if not the healthiest at times lol

Decided to observe Chanukah this year, and I've booked it all off as well, which will be nice. Hopefully the menorah will be delivered by Wednesday!

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.
