one of my online spaces just fell apart. it was a discord server with only a few people. i can never find a place in larger discords so finding one with 3-4 regular/active people was nice. gone now. where next?

figuring this shit out is a slow path. you can’t just take one step and be at your destination. you have to wander around the forest of ideas. that time isn’t wasted: it’s just a nice walk.

i wouldn’t worry about life goals imo. at least in the sense of finding “your purpose”. your purpose is just being here. what you like doing and what you want to do will change. there isn’t just one thing that you are supposed to do. idk.

anyway i’m alright thanks. i just passed a pretty brutal deadline for a writing assignment and i’ve got one day off before the most brutal deadline i’ve had in my life (150 pages in three months). so i’m really enjoying one day of not worrying about that stuff before it starts again.

other people can help them? if i visit with a disabled person i can get their food for them and wash their dish. if they go alone, i’m sure the cook wouldn’t mind serving the occasional dish in that circumstance, or maybe some other customers could do it.

I don't know anyone who has talked about this other than ziq possibly mentioning it.

i’m pretty sure graeber talks about the unnecessary nature of a lot of it in bullshit jobs. not that places couldn’t exist that cook food for others, but the servers, the people who seat you, who take your order, etc. it’s so unnecessary. we can do all that shit ourselves. we can go to the kitchen and serve up our own food. we can go and wash our own individual plate after. you’re right. the jobs exist just to be there and in this case to wait on you the way a servant would for rich lords in the past.

do what you want. if it gets annoying, someone will say, and then it can find its own space. i wouldn’t mind seeing it in lobby or wherever you want to post it. i’d rather see contributions/thoughts/discussions from users than random links to guardian articles or whatever.
