A thread to write about the things you're grateful for, no matter how small it is. Don't be shy to post daily!

"One of the early research studies on gratitude journals by Emmons & McCullough found that "counting one's blessings" in a journal led to improved psychological and physical functioning. Participants who recorded weekly journals, each consisting of five things they were grateful for, were more optimistic towards the upcoming week and life as a whole, spent more time exercising, and had fewer symptoms of physical illness. Participants who kept daily gratitude journals reported increased overall gratitude, positive affect, enthusiasm, determination, and alertness. They were also more likely to help others and make progress towards their personal goals, compared to those who did not keep gratitude journals."

We used to have a thread like this, but it died on /ot/ and I think it could find a better home here on /g/.
Please keep cynicism and sardonic comments to a minimum.

I am very thankful for all of the mice that help us with science. I love rodents (I love all mammals, really) and I know their conditions can be less than ideal sometimes and I know they're not there willingly, but thank to a lot of these mice and rats, we can save a lot of lives and make breakthrough discoveries. This is not much, but I want to honor their spirits.
I'm so sorry, mice friends. But thank you so much, a thousand times, thank you.

That's a really sweet thing to be thankful for nona ♥ I always think about the contributions animals have made to science research because I do want to study biology some day.
It sucks knowing that there is a lot of necessary evil in the pursuit of knowledge, especially for the medical field. Not even for just animals, I imagine a lot of people had to experience a lot of pain before we knew what the fuck we were doing. Though hopefully we know now a lot of things are obsolete to test now.

Reminded me, The secret of NIMH and Plague Dogs are good fictional stories about animal testing though they are pretty bleak

No. 266070

Today I'm thankful for the fact that I have food to eat and a place to live, and that I have parents who love me.
In also thankful for being able to study something I actually like and am good at from the comfort of my home.

No. 266224

I'm grateful for when I tell my parents "oh this thing is really yummy" and then they keep coming home with more and more of it and I just have to eat it until I'm absolutely sick of it. I love that gesture of parental love. I'm very physically affectionate but my parents aren't, but I'm grateful for all the little things they do for me.

No. 266245

Thanks, I think you may know, but The Secret of NIHM is based of in this real life experiment. Warning for animal abuse. I loved the movie as a kid (although it scared me) so it surprised me that it was based of a real thing.

On topic, I'm very grateful for Wikipedia! I know it's discredited a lot, especially in the earlier days, but it's such a good site. I think I use it almost daily, even if it's just to check what is the name of this specialized word in english or or any other language or see how old an actor is, for example. Maybe I'll just read it for fun because there are some topics that I had no idea even existed. I really love their message of never monetizing the site to keep knowledge open for all people that have an internet access. I was reminded of this because I got an e-mail from them thanking the donation I made last year (it was a really small amount), and now I feel like donating again, they really deserve it.
Thank you: Jimmy Wales, the programmers, the editors, the scientists, the consultants and everyone else all around the World that makes Wikipedia possible and accessible.

I just know alot of women who wear the engagement ring til they're married and then often they put it away and just wear the wedding ring and maybe eternity band.

I was more excited about my eternity band because that way I was getting diamonds that I'd realistically wear for decades.

who cares you can replace the stone if necessary, and keep the old one in a memory box or something

Maybe I'm being optimistic but he seems like the kind of person that genuinely wouldn't try to pressure me into doing it. Which almost makes this harder. If he was a dick trying to pressure me into kids when I don't want them I'd have an easier time letting him go. But he really does love and value me and never tries to force me into anything. Just like how I wouldn't want to have kids to make someone else happy, I wouldn't want to keep someone from having kids to make myself happy. This sucks. I guess I'll have a talk with him about it soon. I'm thinking of telling him how I feel and for him to not give me an answer so that he can sit and think on it for a while. I know his immediate response would be "I don't mind, I'll do anything to be with you" but I don't think he's grasped the reality of saying something like that.

No. 266229

Man, I don't know what to say to that. That just sounds like a way to make yourself miserable. My boyfriend's siblings all have bachelor degrees, if not graduate degrees from really "prestigious" places, and they laugh about being Mexican but overall, they don't really care about it. It is pretty cool his parents literally slept in hammocks and made their own pottery out in Mexico yet their kids are all so successful in the American sense of that idea. I have met some of those Mexicans he's talking, but if he is in STEM, imo, all the Mexicans I've met in those fields are pretty hardworking. You have nothing to gain from acting more "white" as they will still never see you that way. I've seen this time and time again as a white person. Reminds me a lot of internalized misogyny. It's kind of sad.

No. 266231

Kids is the one issue where you can't compromise. If one partner wants kids and the other doesn't, then you will forever have a conflict and resentment in your relationship. Even if he thinks he will be okay not having kids right now, in 10 or 15 years he could seriously regret that and then he will resent YOU for it. Seriously don't stay with someone who doesn't want the same things in life as you.

No. 266232

This. He may not be feeling the desire too strongly right now but that will change as he gets older. He'll forever feel like he missed out on something huge he wanted in life if he doesn't have kids, I've seen it happen in other people's relationships. Don't put yourself through the greater heartbreak of waiting things out for a few more years before having to split. Sorry you're in this situation.

No. 266238

My understanding is they're talking about an anti nuptial agreement. So it's not a 50/50 split of assets/debts earned during the marriage but custom if that makes sense? So say I spend 10 years raising kids (not the plan but hypothetically) and the husband decides to divorce I wouldn't be entitled to much because I wasn't earning. Or the agreement of keeping finances separate which is what I think they did. I'm not too acquainted with the specific marriage laws in my country and variations because I didn't think it would be something to consider.

I can't even imagine the grief you must be feeling right now nonnie. Please remember through all you're about to go through and through all you're going to support your sister through, to take time for yourself. You're grieving a loss too, and it's going to take some time to process all of this.
Are you seeing a therapist? Is she? If you're not seeing one already, I recommend chatting with a professional, even if it's just to have someone to talk to that's removed from the situation. Having a solid support network outside of this traumatic event is imperative.
Good luck, and I'm so sorry for your loss.

Laidback, easy to get along with, a little retarded. I can talk about pretty much anything, and am alright with switching subjects frequently or having a lengthy discussion about one thing.

I have a question regarding IUDs. I've been on the pill since early 2017 and I get pretty bad side effects. My breasts swell up (they become REALLY painful) and I get extremely nauseous. I haven't been off the pill since 2017 and the symptoms haven't disappeared. I'm honestly sick of it and decided to get an IUD. Have any of you had experiences with IUDs? I am not sure whether to get the hormonal or non-hormonal one. I absolutely hate and almost can't stand the side effects of hormonal birth control, but I get very painful periods and I heard that the copper IUD makes them 10x worse. ;-;

Just straight him ask when the last time he got tested and make him show the results. If he hasn't ever got tested, make him get one and refuse to sleep with him until he gets tested. If he refuses to both, leave him.
>If I could I would just pick up the most simplest condom I could find without all the climax, pleasure or intimate types.
Just get lubed ones. KISS: keep it simple, silly!
Obv condoms will feel weird, lol, but if you can't handle the feeling, either use lambskin condoms (don't really suggest it since they don't prevent STIs like latex) or just do other things instead.

No. 261538

Tbh I don’t live with family anymore, but when I did, I never discussed it because I knew what a headache it would be. Everything about sex, sexual health, condoms, etc I learned from the internet. Even if you can’t discuss it with them, it’s a good idea to look up condoms online and read their reviews, that way you know what to get before you go to the store (or you could even buy them online, but I know my family would open my packages kek). The different names like “climax” and whatnot aren’t important, all lubed latex condoms are pretty similar. I’m a burger so the biggest brand is Trojan, but you should search the top selling condom brand in your country and look at the reviews.

>I just sometimes worry that it's more me putting him at risk rather than the other way around.

Unprotected sex is a risk to you both, but the fact is a huge number of guys just don’t care about the risks and would rather go condomless because it feels better for them. It’s unfair but it’s also more dangerous for women because of pregnancy and potential infertility problems from STDs. I would just ask him straight up if he’s been tested (no need to sugarcoat or step around it). Ask to see the results. Getting tested yourself is a good idea too because some people will lie, and most STDs are easily treatable early on.

Seconding this. I'm horribly depressed from outside circumstances AND from the fact that I can't control when I want to have sex. I'm dry as a bone no matter what and it's such a huge mood killer.

Don’t put it on the plant. You’ll kill bees but to stop beetles and slugs you can take an empty plastic gallon. Cut the bottom off and place it over the plant and then cover it in D.E. So it makes a white circle around the plant. DE is too big and will stop them.
