I don't know if I should sell my copies of Golden Sun and its sequel. I bought them second hand like 3 or 4 years ago and barely touched them because the beginning of the first game was a drag. Everytime I try to play it I get sick of the random encounters, I don't have enough patience for this anymore. But I can't thinking about how I could probably like these games later and how rare these games became? What do?

Can you really develop a full fledged pneumonia in two fucking days?
I’m freaking out, yesterday I thought I had a mild flu, nothing important, my nose was dripping and I thought it was either some pesky flu or just my usual allergies because of the remodeling stuff in the house and the bug spray.
In the morning of today I was annoyed by my runny nose, on midday I was okay, I was even sweating a bit so I thought I was getting better.
And now I’m throwing up yellow phlegm and feeling like my throat is all nasty and tight.

I think it more depends on if you're working towards managing your mental health better, ie going to therapy and finding things that work for you.

I want to furnish and decorate my rented apartment, preferably stuff that fulfills a use and is affordable, but since I know I won’t spend all of my life here, and will probably move out eventually, I want to invest in furniture and decorations that are easy to move in a car.
So far, I’ve thought of for utilitarian and moveable furniture:
-pillows and pillow-covers
-storage rack or storage boxes
-food rack for the kitchen
-an electric fan for summer
-nice looking dishwear
-coffee table (can be affordable and moveable depending on size)
Not Utilitarian but easily moveable and somewhat affordable or free:
-old family photos
-general wall hangs (rugs, posters, embroidery hoops,paintings )
-potted plants that I can grow myself
-small figurines from charity shops
My family was proud of me, but my father keeps making snide comments about too much muscle, even now.
Going to the beach with a body i actually like for the first time was great, but then the euphoria fades. Still, it feels good to have fun without insecurity.
Maintaining is hard and plateaus are hard as fuck to overcome. It’s a lifestyle and its not for everyone. You need to go for what brings you the most amount of joy,
I havent noticed a difference in how i get treated but then again I dont really go outside and dress in baggy clothes
Not an Arab here, I'm north African but from a Muslim family. Basically my little sister hid her relationship with her Asian bf until she felt it was a serious enough relationship, so she presented him to our parents at a stage where they wouldn't have been able to say anything about it. Then he proposed to her and they planned on moving together to a apartment, but he broke up with her the day before moving because he felt she was too obsessed with money, despite him being kind of broke and her helping him getting a job despite covid. At this stage my parents were angry at him and they thought he should be ashamed of himself for "scamming" my sister, yadda yadda. My big sister also hid her relationships until she broke up with her exes. I never had a relationship because unlike them I don't give a shit about religion and I think literally the only point of a relationship is sex, which would be risky given how strict my family is. A bunch of people I know tend to get married kind of young just so they can fuck without being in trouble for it, and they have kids while studying or starting their careers because then their family helps with raising the babies.
tldr; most people I know either don't date (included), hide their relationship for a long time (while only holding hands and maybe kissing), or get married soon after they start dating.
But are they truly throwing men under the bus or are they just lying and telling women what they want to hear to let our guards down?
No, there is no such equivalent as a male pickme because men are not conditioned to serve women and debase themselves for us.
Maybe "orbiter" or "simp" comes close, but that's just opportunism. Men frown upon it because they don't get to game women straight away but they're still sneaky fucks. When fatty uggo orbiters get into relationships with women even they take us for granted after awhile and expect to be served as eternal thanks for their initial simping. Pickme women are doormat slaves well after the honeymoon phase and always come to the defense of men.

Me and my wife are getting two shelter cats next week and it's our first cat experience. We bought two cat trees, bowls for food and water, some toys, boxes for carrying them, hiding beds, cat toilets etc. But I feel like we forgot something important still? Any cat owner who could enlighten me maybe?
Also German cat owners: what food do you recommend? Wheat and sugarfree is so expensive, but I want at least a proper wheat free one. Had one in my hand at DM earlier but wanted some experienced opinions first lmfao
My armchair theory is the lack of control, like probably the idea of a partner becoming immobile or unable to fend for themselves after getting so large, similar to amputee kinks.
And I assume for people who find fatness attractive, just taking that to the extreme and the idea of contributing to someone getting bigger and bigger.

sorry i only have general tips kek. you probably know this already, but if they don't drink their water, it could be because their water is next to the food bowl and that is considered their hunting ground. they don't wanna drink water from near a dead body, so to speak. just move it somewhere else or maybe invest in a little cat water fountain, most cats love these.
as for food, your cats will tell you what they like. never buy in excessive bulk and make sure to go through different brands. you will soon find out that maybe one hates fish and the other hates chicken. also they will love one brand one day and hate it the next. in the end you'll probably end up buying whatever sugary cat food they love because you want your children to be happy.
also they'll probably drag litter around and it's painful when you step in it, so these mats are godsend: https://www.amazon.de/ASOBEAGE-Katzenstreu-Unterleger-wasserdichte-Bienenwabe/dp/B07PYGLRGN?th=1

I am far from an athletic goddess, but have gone from being completely untrained skinnyfat (no sports even as a kid) to lifting for about a year and and now having some noticeable muscle. I was always average looking in clothes so people don't really treat me differently, except family and friends being surprised at how my arms look and feel when I flex. Sadly I haven't been to the beach or pool since I started. I used to be very self-conscious in swimsuits and only wear one pieces with swim shorts, but now I would have no problem wearing a two piece and am kinda looking forward to it– I'm nowhere near my goal body but am happy with it for the first time in my life. Bodybuilder-tier low bodyfat is definitely hard to maintain, but if you enjoy working out and find a diet that works for you, it just becomes a part of your lifestyle and I don't think it's difficult at all. It just takes a lot of time and consistency to form the initial habits.
Best of luck with your fitness anon! It truly changed my life for the better.

Neither have most girls who played with them. I don't think that many girls who played with them actually wanted to look like them, if anything we wanted to emulate their fashion sense but we acknowledged they looked cartoony.
You're fine. I liked bratz more than any other dolls as a kid because their skin tones looked more like my actual friends than barbies. In a weird way, all "dolls" can be problematic
for always being idealized stereotypes of women and girls, but there is never anything inherently wrong with a child loving a toy and forming an emotional attachment to it.

and everyone knows the superior, terribly bimbofied dolls were my scenes
Not at all? I find Bratz less problematic
than Barbies, honestly. Their proportions are way more obviously cartoony and Barbies always made me feel bad for not being a pretty blonde, I didn't want to be the "friend" doll (Chelsea/Theresa) that nobody cared about just because I had olive skin and dark hair.

thank you, exactly. when could bratz compare to this collection? i will admit though that bratz clothes were their strong suit. bratz dolls themselves look absolutely insane and it's shocking that girls want to look like them physically. they look almost mongoloid-like, really. and i lost many of their feet. i would always imagine they'd have to pathetically patter about around school on their delicate little nubs whenever i lost their hoofshoes, which happened a lot. the my scene site and illustrations were also factually superior

great clothes but hideous. my scenes reign supreme
Idk MyScenes faces were just as ridiculous but sized down. Bratz were clearly just exaggerated and as a child I never took them seriously in a way that a woman should look like that.
Also I really loved Bratz hair, it was always so soft and easy to comb and style whereas MyScene suffered from that Barbie problem with the overly plastic hair.
That said I liked both of the dolls as a kid, I just preferred Bratz.
Also I think Bratz had a bit more edge to them which appealed to me as a kid. And the RockAngelz songs were so good I still like them today kek

I used to love bratz as a kid but I couldn’t play with them without someone saying they where dressed “like sluts” and that id better not dress like that when I’m older. My favourite was the yasmin from the Tokyo collection. I was obsessed with her green braids. Unfortunately I was a bit too old for them by the time the monster high dolls came out, because I would have gone apeshit over them.

>>1021281>Their proportions are way more obviously cartoony and Barbies always made me feel bad for not being a pretty blonde, I didn't want to be the "friend" doll
ayrt, and same, the real appeal of Bratz for little girls was that they were marketed together
as friends, the theme would have been different had they put forth some sort of "Yasmin and her friends". Like, Barbie started out alone so introducing friends and slapping a catchy brand name on the friend group would have been difficult to pull off because her name by itself was already popular. Not that they wanted to anyways. So little girls would have had to play as a sort of side-kick/supporting character. So child self-centeredness played a huge role.>that nobody cared about just because I had olive skin and dark hair
This is a really good example of what little girls' interpretation is like when dolls are marketed the way Barbie was lol. I also didn't like Barbie's bland style, so I wouldn't have wanted one that looked like me anyways. And loathed pink>>1021314>>1021308>>1021254

>>1021555>The moral panic surrounding Bratz, Barbies, anything under the Mattel sun is kind of stupid>Mattel
Did you mean MGA? Nowadays nobody is protesting Barbie, even on lolcow. How do you feel about vidrel btw
Bratz were supposed to be My Scene btw, the creator got into some drama with Mattel and created their own brand. I think they lost a lolsuit to Mattel.
Well zoomers certainly don't think so with their Real Life Bratz make-up. Also dolls look in many different ways and aren't always innocent as any collector would tell you. They can be analyzed and criticized, like any cultural text (idk if that's how the term is translated to English, so bear with me). The heavy make-up, come hither eyes, giant puckered lips and often thotty outfits made me think they look off, and I was a kid. Didn't have a problem with early My Scene, Barbies, Diva Starz… Even Flavas didn't seem bad to me (another moral panic, this time about hood culture corrupting children). IDK if Brats ~sent the wrong message~ though the tiktok mania could be a good argument for the case. I've always found them ugly as hell though. I know there were a few less "sexy" series (Winter Wonderland?), but I still find their molds hideous.
I don't know if I buy into any tinfoil, but MGA has been at it with selling dolls that make you go hmmmm for the last 20 years
>>1021281>I didn't want to be the "friend" doll (Chelsea/Theresa) that nobody cared about just because I had olive skin and dark hair.
This is a big thing too, Bratz are/were more diverse so of course more girls would like them. Maybe the CEO being Iranian has something to do with it
Too bad about the weird/gross shit they're putting out these days though
FUCKING DUMP HIS ASS.
Or give him an ultimatum. Lose this weight in this time.
, I have been with the same bf the whole time and obviously he is very happy and encouraging of it. He was already more active than me and gave a lot of pointers in the beginning, I kind of attribute that to why I stuck to it as there's a huge amount of conflicting info online to sift through as a beginner. It's important to lift for yourself first and foremost, but it's definitely motivating to notice him finding me even more attractive than before and to share new PRs with someone else who cares.

Not that I know of, you could gargle some warm water with salt, or get some of these things that you can suck slowly. I would do both. Some people also does some gargles with hydrogen peroxide, I think I did it once, it was too late for me, but you feel some relief.
Thank you nurse nonnie
, salt and warm water sounds gross but I’ll just say it’s ‘mermaidpilled’ and get on with it.
when it's mostly just one person abusing the other, it's toxic
if they both have the freedom to leave but stay together being shitlords to each other
relationships are usually a case of a person being mentally ill/immature and not actively harming their partner but making their life overall worse regardless of the love between them; abusers actively do things towards their partners that harm them in some way, even if the abuser isn't aware that their actions are abusive
the actions are deliberate. Both are shit, but abusers are evil.
So like for example a toxic
partner could be someone who has a mental illness and isn't using it in any way against you, but isn't really trying to get better either which slows your life to a halt. They've got depression and are in a stage where instead of getting better they're subconsciously acting in a way to make everyone around them depressed as well. It's technically just a symptom of depression and they aren't doing it to hurt anyone but themselves though it's still horrible. They're generally bringing your life down, but it's not out of them trying to hurt you, they're just not in a place where they should really be in a relationship. Another common example would be a situation where the toxic
partner is enabling the other one's bad habits, usually out of misplaced love or by having a problem themself that they don't want to confront either.
An abuser on the other hand will take explicit action against you and are fully aware of what they're doing (again, regardless of if they see it as abusive
or not). They'll make decisions for you and take their own opinion as gospel (even arguing that people's personal tastes are "wrong" if they're different from their own). They'll "logic" their way into a circular argument that will take you around in circles until you give up or they escalate (or trigger
you into getting angry and then they place full bad guy status on you). Lundy Bancroft's book on abusers is an absolutely eye-opening book and I highly recommend it for anyone interested in learning about abusers (especially for those formerly in abusive
relationships or those who suspect they're in one, it shows how they're all basically the same and is great for identifying and destroying any gaslighting you've received). Abusers always escalate and even if you're perfect they won't be happy

I've been working for a small newspaper for half a year now, but my position/company is reeeeeally slow so I know I probably have a different experience compared to most other people in the field, but I'm… ambivalent about it. I don't plan on staying on the field after this. I didn't go to school for journalism, I went for international politics, but got my current position because I was recommended for it and took it because of benefits (pay is shit tho). I wasn't really doing anything really interesting anyway and wanted to try out something new that would kind of be relevant to my degree to see if it was worth it. It's not kek.
I get to do some interesting stuff like visiting the United Nations often, applying for press badges for events (my boss lets me apply to stuff even if I just want to go for myself), and occasionally interviewing people, but most of it is a bore. The paper I work for is obviously out to put a certain angle on stories, which I'm not a fan of, but that's just life in the field. I don't mind doing street interviews but it's not my favorite thing. I guess it can be fulfilling for the right person but it isn't worth for me to really pursue it any further than where I'm at.

I want to furnish and decorate my rented apartment, preferably stuff that fulfills a use and is affordable, but since I know I won’t spend all of my life here, and will probably move out eventually, I want to invest in furniture and decorations that are easy to move in a car. Am I missing anything?
So far, I’ve thought of for utilitarian and moveable furniture:
-pillows and pillow-covers
-storage rack or storage boxes
-food rack for the kitchen
-an electric fan for summer
-nice looking dishwear
-coffee table (can be affordable and moveable depending on size)
Not Utilitarian but easily moveable and somewhat affordable or free:
-old family photos/ personal photos
-general wall hangs (rugs, posters, embroidery hoops,paintings )
-potted plants that I can grow myself
-small figurines from charity shops

I'm looking for a camera that I could use for streaming and vlogging, what are your recommendations?
I need a camera that I can keep connected to my computer while streaming (so I don't have to worry about the battery) but has enough capture quality that I can take out and do some minor vlogging. I currently own a very cheap Logitech camera but can only capture properly if I'm using the camera's software, otherwise everything looks like ass.

kek, i guess their entire "identity" they think is being ripped off because of simple interests. the only time any of this matters is when your livelihood is riding on your whole identity and people are capitalizing off of your look, personality, interests. sometimes when i see people complaining about it it definitely seems like they're being unreasonably posessive over these interests.
otherwise i can't understand caring about people developing the same interests or hobbies as you. claims of skinwalking seem highly exaggerated.
a lot of people suffer from lack of identity, so they can appropriate yours and it might be frustrating if they do so especially if you've been marginalized/bullied or not given reaffirmation for your interests, hobbies and who you are as an individual. It is not necessarily about selling yourself. This applies to day to day socialization and life and it does not have to be on the internet. Has it ever happened to you that in class in school you rise your hand and someone steals your answer because you do not say it loud enough and they get the praise you were supposed to get? It's just normal to feel frustation after something like that. I don't think it is about simple interests, BPDs go beyond simple interests and their skinwalking is psychotic. They begin mimicking your hand movements, gestures, the way you talk, dress, your voice inflexions, your interests and so on and most people cannot observe it or know it. I have dealt with a handful of BPDs that have done this to me. I think the best is to stay away from people like that, I'm trying to learn their phenotype. Skinwalking is surprisingly very common nowadays. Have you seen girls skinwalking Belle Delphine? It goes beyond having the same interests as her like gaming or doing OnlyFans. They are copying her shoots, editing their faces to look exactly like hers, talking like her and so on. I just think a lot of people literally do not have an identity and it might be a modern phenomenon. Belle was just an example because this doesn't only happen on the internet but also in real life and not only for onlyfans thots but for other content creators as well. It is one thing to get inspiration from someone or begin liking the same things that they do and another thing to literally steal their entire identity from hand gestures, speaking inflexions, looks, expressions and so on. It's creepy and even more creepeier that it is so common but most people overlook it.
NTAYRT but you're so right. I remember a while back an anon posted about how she was being skinwalked by one of her coworkers, to the point where they would copy her exact socks. She said something like how she curated her fashion sense from being raised in a poor household and she even learned how to sew too growing up. I don't think it's petty at all to be upset someone is taking a personal part of you because of their own insecurities.
Anon do you have any tips on detecting BPD people who do this?
just to add to this, the japanese is for sageru is 下げる and for sage is 下げ
and it's not really shortened because of amerikkkan shorthand but because that's the informal conjugation of the verb (sageru = ``it lowers''; sage = ``lower it'', i.e., don't bump the thread)
Is it on the sidewalk, outside of the yard? Near trash cans? Then it is trash and you can take it.
If you are not too autistic you can ring the doorbell and ask if its OK to take it.
There is no front yard, just doorstep and pavement, so I think it's ok.
I don't think I want to ring anyone's doorbell over there I swear the odd house is a brothel kek

Nonas I really need some advice.
How do you get yourself to do shit?
I've always had trouble focusing and staying motivated, but never like this. I just panic and get anxious and freeze at the idea of doing anything. The tiniest thing like checking my email seems impossible and even stuff that's supposed to be fun like responding to a friend or taking a walk. Doing something like that once already feels like a herculean feat, let alone doing it every day like I'm supposed to. It feels so pathetic and overly dramatic even just typing it, but I have no idea how to get back into the momentum of being functional.
All the advice I found online is in the vein of 'just do it' which I understand but is there any more tangible advice out there? Sorry if this is too blogposty for this thread.
If you don't have mental health issues: Just fucking do it. Stop being lazy and practice some self-discipline. Do it because if you don't you will feel more anxious and guilty over time. If you just fucking do it, you won't have to feel guilt and anxiety. So just do it.
If you have (or believe you have) mental health issues such as ADHD/depression: go to a specialist and find the medicine/therapy that will make doing things a non-issue.
I'm going through the exact same shit right now, right down to not even being able to bring myself to do extremely simple things or stuff I'm meant to enjoy. While I'm struggling to manage it at the moment (so take my advice with a grain of salt), I've found that making a to-do list that breaks down tasks into small components has been helpful in the past. Since I procrastinate simple stuff so much that it piles up and becomes overwhelming to even think about, having it written down and in front of me in more easily 'digestible' chunks can make it easier to visualize and approach.
Also, sometimes I procrastinate tasks because I'm waiting until I 'feel motivated' to do it. This feeling literally never happens so don't even bother waiting for it, just get started even if it feels excruciating to do so since starting is always the worst part.
There's definitely mental health issues at play but there's a ridiculous waiting list right now. I made an intake appointment for the soonest possible date, which is in march. I don't like the idea of meds for different reasons but even then there's an extensive process before you're even at the stage where meds are considered. Realistically it's going to take until may at least.>>1022895
Thank you, I'm sorry you deal with the same thing but it's comforting to not feel alone in it. I've been trying to make to-do lists like that and it feels good to organise but actually doing the stuff on it instead of abandoning it after the first few items is very hard. It's the consistency that sucks to maintain. Like, it takes all of my willpower to answer some overdue messages today, which is relieving. But if I don't manage to do that every day, it reverts back to the same chaos it was before in no time. >sometimes I procrastinate tasks because I'm waiting until I 'feel motivated' to do it
I can relate to that, thanks for that advice. The discipline to just start is difficult to muster up either way, but it helps to realize that it's always gonna be shit and that it's no use waiting for some magical moment where it's suddenly easy.>>1022896
Yeah, smoking weed is definitely a motivation killer but I quit a while ago. The thing is, in the past I have tried several adderall-type adhd medications and both me and multiple people around me have had extremely bad experiences with it, so that's not something I want to revisit. I'm hoping there's other methods to increase adhd motivation.

Is there such a thing anymore as a dedicated website where good artists post their illustrations? Like Deviantart but not flooded with terrible fetish artists.

It’s slowing driving me nuts so maybe one of you guys knows what I’m talking about.
I’m trying to remember what I think was a visual novel or dating sim with a nautical theme. Like the characters are like loli versions of sea creatures, I think the MC had a sailor lolita thing going on, simple artwork etc. I have a feeling it was probably popular a few years back and I completely missed it. Hell, maybe it was a webcomic. Seagulls might have been a thing? Did my mind make this up?
Honestly, the best way to make your furnishings portable is to not buy so much. Most of the stuff on your list is useless.
- You only need one throw blanket, or zero if you live in a warm area.
- Bean bags are not moveable. Once you take them out of the original packaging, they're impossible to squish back down again.
- Your bathroom will probably come with a mirror installed (if you're in the US, not sure about other countries).
- You only need sleeping pillow(s). Throw pillows are useless and take up space on your couch/bed.
- If you get a rug, you will also need to buy a vacuum cleaner. If you just want to keep your feet warm, you could get thick socks or slippers.
- Dishware is good, but you don't need more than one size of plate and bowl. Beware faddish patterns. I recommend plain white Corelle. It's lighter weight than stoneware, but also less fragile, and still microwavable.
- Regarding decorations and knicknacks, even though each individual item may be lightweight, the collection will take up precious car space when you eventually move. Also, eventually you will get used to your decorations being there, so you won't even look at them anymore. It's called the hedonistic treadmill.
I also thought of some things you need that you didn't list:
- Cookware (IMO, a cast-iron skillet, saucepan, and Dutch-Oven-sized pot are sufficient. You could even go without the big pot if you don't do batch cooking.)
- Cooking accessories, like spatula, spoon, knife, cutting board, measuring cup, dish towels.
- Microwave, if your apartment doesn't come with one.
- Brita or similar, if the tap water in your area tastes bad.

I have one of these and I wanna sell it but it's yellowed a lot. I'm thinking of taking a fine grid sandpaper to it, is that a bad idea?
When women say their needs aren't being met it's because they genuinely aren't and it's fair game.
Just be careful because if you're caught, your main scrote can either kick you to the curb or enact violence against you as punishment while society claps because you should have CoMmUniCaTeD more. It's not always as simple for women to "just break up" when they live with men and cannot support themselves, so hey, one bitch on lolcow understands.
But men though? Nah, I don't believe the majority of men who say they aren't having needs met because usually it's through some fault of their own or misconception that they aren't.
ie. Not being served hot dinner when the wife is busy counts as "abuse" in a male's mind.
ie. Man complains about dead bedroom while not doing anything to romance wife while she juggles work and house duties.
The only time I dealt with being skinwalked was when someone was picking up my exact niche interests, particular styles, and habits while actively hating me in an attempt to take my place as my best friend's best friend. She tried the same thing with my friend's fiancee and failed, so I was her next target.
I ended up cutting her off completely in the middle of the night and she had the audacity to ask why I blocked her everywhere. I would have been open to communicating my problems like an adult, but the one (and only) time I tried resolving a separate issue, I was immediately blocked across 3 separate platforms and when I asked wtf was going on, her response was "oh sorry that was an accident! lol"
I'm almost positive she had undiagnosed BPD too.
I guess in the end it was less about the interests being copied, and more about everything else in combination with that. That's what skinwalking is to me, anyway.
Do you think this is due to anxiety, OCD, depression, or something else? If you're nervous about trying meds or the wait is long, you could look into supplements or OTC lavender-based anxiety pills, to find research on it look up "Silexan". I'm in a similar rut now where caring is hard because of external circumstances, but not keeping up with tasks only makes it worse. If lists are partly working for you, maybe try reordering so you go from one east task to a harder one instead of putting all the easier ones first? Building good habits takes time and consistency; even if you forgot or don't do it one day, what matters more is getting back on it. For something like taking a walk I hope you can motivate or get yourself to do that, put on some good music or a podcast, getting outside and moving is helpful.

i have an interview where they are requiring a typing test be performed at the end but autotype for the past few years has kinda stopped me from increasing my wpm. Is there anyway I can increase my wpm from around 58 to 70 (what they require) or should I just accept imminent failure LMAO. What can I do to increase my speed? Just take typing tests all day?
I really relate to these feelings. It can have a lot of different causes, try to sit down and figure which one could it be for you. It's usually way deeper than just not "feeling like doing it". Sometimes it's what we eat, an emotional issue rooted in something that happened to us, being online too much, a health issue, etc.
But for a more general advice on discipline, it is said that is much easier to have discipline when we have our needs met, that is: doing exercise, sleeping and eating well. I also think that having a routine that gives our brains a little bit of clarity and focus is great. I started to wake up early, stretch a little bit, take a shower and have breakfast without looking at my phone. I don't know how doable that is for you, everyone has their own needs and characteristics but personally starting my day like this made me feel good, motivated and I was able to finally sit down and study for hours.
But yes, discipline is hard. It never gets easier, you just get smarter with your decisions with time and practice. Other tip is to think about the consequences of not doing it now that you have the time and resources to at least start that task. It's always so stressful to procrastinate, being disciplined is an act of love for your future self.

You can get pregnant on your period. Sperm can live for a few days inside of you. If he has a good sperm count, odds are higher more live to see you ovulate.
If a penis is involved, you can get pregnant.
Yes and no. I’ve had big one that was too big (long) and one that was too thick, but I’ve had big dicks that we’re good. I’ve never had a good experience with a small one. But I know some women do.

for the love of god dont buy anything with fragrance your skin doesn't need it, it will fuck you over. I would also recommend avoiding: tea tree, witch hazel, citrus, snail can cause acne if you're allergic to dust/dust mites, mint, essential oils, fermented ingredients can cause under the skin bumps. I highly recommend at this point anything which is only for babies or people with eczema because they will usually cut out all the bad fillers that are normally in pretty much all sephora, ulta, and other skin products. pic related are all the face washes I would recommend. the white for dry skin, blue for oily, and vanicream white sensitive if even the other two are too much. skin bliss the app can scan ingredient lists you give to tell you what all will be harmful too. you might be able to find what foods give you acne too like too much sugar, nuts, dairy, specific veggie/fruit, wheat, maybe a type of fish.
Well I'm relieved it's not just me. Though with women I find %99 attractive and with men it's the %5 at most. Men's shitty personalities don't help either.

Do the same and advertise his number to gay men and transvestites. Can also put his number on sites as a prostitute ad or transvestite.

He was very handsome but I'd never think of a literal married man in a sexual way nevermind try to make a retarded move like that. He was a good man, he'd always get so uncomfortable kek.

I'll admit that a good chunk of them look uncanny because of fillers (i assume). But there are many naturally pretty ones. Theyre just much better "untouched".
I think the attraction comes mostly from seeing them "be cute" (like those "x member being cute for 10 mins compilations). If you think a guy is cute and innocent enough, u'll think theyre attractive.
BTS is definitely a bad example, they used to look cute, sometimes, but went overboard with fillers.
Also most of them look much better on videos from interviews and games. Pictures are overly photoshopped and so are music vids.
Just gonna post two people who i think arent the most conventionally attractive in their group, but definitely natural.

TLDR; theyre attractive because they act cute and innocent and non-threatening. Also because most fans see them without photoshop and extreme makeup, like when they play games etc.

Any anons who knit here?
I plan to start knitting or chrochetting as a new hobby and I was wondering if there's a difference between the two and if one is easier than the other. I'm hoping to try for a beanie as a first project. Would that be biting off more than I can chew as a start?
I do both! A beanie is a good first project for either craft, though you may want to practice with some basic swatch squares first to get the motions down. Also, beginner-appropriate crochet beanie patterns tend to be fugly so you may have to dig through Ravelry a bit.
I wouldn't say that one's easier than the other. Knitting seems more complicated at first but makes good-looking fabric easier, whereas crochet might be simpler to pick up (for some people) but you will run into issues with your projects curling or getting wonky if you're not carefully counting stitches. if you're interested in both crafts, regardless of which one you start with, learn continental knitting as the yarn-holding technique is very similar to crochet so you'll have an easier time transitioning. If you can't decide, think of the type of projects you'd rather make. If you want to make clothes like sweaters, beanies, scarves, socks, or gloves, start with knitting. If you want to make toys/amigurumi and more 3d objects or lace, start with crochet. If you don't like one, you can always switch to the other. Good luck!
Thanks, that already makes me feel a little better about myself.>>1025979
Don't be jealous, the fact that I barely have anything to do is only temporary. I worked way too much these past few months because of deadlines and I skipped lunch break and worked overtime almost everyday of November and December and now all I have to do is just wait for clients to call me and give me information I need. Hopefully everything will stay calm until the end of the month.

Gore videos or just movies that contain gore?
I watched a lot of LiveLeak back in the day out of morbid curiosity and because it made me snap out of my suicidal ideation. The scrotes I've talked to about it however saw some sort of relief from the videos like a monkey brain itch being scratched, they became used to them and used the site as proof that the "real world" is full of grotesque shit and God isnt real, we're all sentient meat sacks, murder is natural, etc. Overall I would avoid them as they tend to be nihilistic losers with excuses for everything, which makes for the worst scrotes ever, whether it's a life partner or simply conversation partner.
samefag but wanted to add that blocking her is a form of giving her attention. she will be gleeful to have evidence that she’s getting to you. Wait until she moves out to block her unless she’s harassing you online. Meanwhile you can mute her profile.
Don’t fully ignore her, just grey rock her by only having interactions that you must have as roommates (ie “could you please do your dishes” or “please don’t use my milk” etc)
I'm still not entirely sure why I watch those videos but it's certainly not because I get some sick enjoyment out of it. It's more to do with curiosity…for some reason I have this need to know and see. Some stuff is just too brutal for me to watch though.
Definitely wouldn't trust a scrote who says he likes gore.

Nta but your choices are not only mbti and astrology anon there are also personality theories like big five that are relatively valid
compared to mbti. They don't separate you into types though I guess that's less fun.
By the way mbti is based on Jung's theories and it has some truly arbitrary choices like you can't have 2 consecutive functions both be both introverted or extroverted. They don't really have any justification for this and Jung himself when he talks about Nietzsche mentions that he thinks he might have introverted thinking as well as introverted intuition. Which he couldn't possibly have both under the mbti system. Sorry for psychologyfagging.

At what point during a fat loss journey your breasts get smaller? I'm on the higher range of "acceptable" fat percentage, I store it mostly on my lower body and have medium chest size, maybe even leaning to the smaller side (I'm 85 cms, idk which bra size) and when I touch it it feels like breast tissue mostly, not just fat. I don't want them to get much smaller but I want to lose my body fat (to a healthier range, nothing too drastic)

It’s genetics nonnie
, take a look at the women in your family for a general idea. I’d say keep losing and see what happens. There’s generally an “order” to the areas you lose fat from, and you just have to find out yours. You can always gain the weight back if you hate it.
Because they don't like their coping methods, like talking about mental illness in the "wrong" way or making art about it that is too aesthetic or persistent. Get over it! How long are you gonna ruminate on the debilitating mental disorder?
I think that a lot of it is oppression olympics and inability to understand that others may cope or be affected in different ways: "well I have depression and I never would try to kill myself, she's a selfish attention whore". Treating yourself as some paragon of being a Good Mental Illness Sufferer.
You can have mental illness and still be gauche. Unless you have psychotic disorders you live in reality and can control your behavior. No one is forcing anyone to make Hello Kitty self-harm edits. At some point that person needs to take a look at the behavior and realize that notes on Tumblr aren’t actually “coping,” and having depression isn’t a free pass to publicize disordered behavior.
The whole worshipping ana goddess thing the pro ana bitches did is another good example of 100% romanticizing anorexia in a completely inappropriate way.
AYRT and while >>1026531
is correct in their response I'll also add that people who tout MBTI and rely on it are often unlike myself in that they don't retest themselves every year, they stick to the one result they got when they took the test initially as a curious teen and will ham fist that same personality type well into adulthood.
Sorry but if you spend your days making/sharing demented memes about trauma and wanting to kill yourself or your inability to function as a human (á la BPDandChill), you’re clearly more invested in the aesthetics of your mental illness than you are in actually taking any steps toward getting better. There’s “coping mechanisms” or “raising awareness,” and then there’s coming to define your entire identity by your disorder which means you’re more reluctant to actually do anything to manage or recover from it.
To say nothing of trends like TikTok teens discussing their tics, alters, or stimming techniques for attention. Romanticizing mental illness does indeed happen quite a lot. It doesn’t mean everyone who has a mental illness does it, but it does happen.
kek ok, anyway retard, hope you understand that "romanticizing" pertains to romanticism>: a literary, artistic, and philosophical movement originating in the 18th century, characterized chiefly by a reaction against neoclassicism and an emphasis on the imagination and emotions, and marked especially in English literature by sensibility and the use of autobiographical material, an exaltation of the primitive and the common man, an appreciation of external nature, an interest in the remote, a predilection for melancholy, and the use in poetry of older verse forms

If you're super flat like barely an A I imagine it wouldnt really matter but maybe you're worried about nips too? There's decorative bralettes that I've layered with sheer thin strap shirts for the summer. I go for something 2nd colored to the outfit or white/black to match lots of tops. They add cute detail to outfits while still covering you. Pic related I'd buy with some white tops to layer, hell I might save up for it.

Maybe invest in a pillow designed to be comfortable for back sleepers? The one to support neck the most, maybe with memory foam too. I don't know if it's possible during covid but normally in mattresses stores you can try out different pillows and choose the one you like best. I'd say it's one of these things you should not save your money on and really go for something best suited for you even if it will be on the more expensive side.

They basically like undertale, danganronpa, omori and Persona, if it was just liking them it's one thing but they're all super fucked up, have weird OCs, make fucked up art, make up kinshit and tulpas , write smut fanfic, are under the influence or have mental issues, lgbt and race obssessed, have a shit ton of discord drama to even IRL stalking etc.
Obviously not everybody who likes these games falls into these categories.
just this certain group that seems focused on these specific games and act that way.
about 90% of them seem to be female and the remaining 10% seem to be MTFs

With trans identification entering mainstream, and other women disidentifying, not odd at all.
People regularly have weird thoughts like that, i.e. being up high and thinking "What if I jumped?" The thoughts themselves don't mean anything, you give them their weight. >>1026824
Be more feminine and more distant/less open around men, if you want a dude to act more trad around you then you yourself have to play
into that role. Can't do a total 180 in a short period of time or it'll weird people out you know, maybe try to say you're changing your style or whatever. Have a stronger circle of female friends. If you're from a culture where these rigid roles aren't as common then it's probably not going to work well. I don't think it's worth it to play a role unnatural to you and it seems helpful to see what these men are like to easily filter them out.

i feel this, i've gotten a lot of random compliments from women but rarely ever men. if that many women compliment you unprovoked, barely even knowing you, you really must be making a good impression on them physically. i highly doubt it's the case that you're ugly and they're just being nice.
for myself, i used to worry a lot that i was just ugly and invisible to men but i think i just don't have the kind of looks or style that would have them randomly compliment me or try to flirt or anything like that. men not complimenting you =/= you are unattractive. i trust women far more on making these judgements anyway

People trying to demonize you because you have a different opinion. I expressed I preferred some (controversial, disliked) writer over another (controversial, more liked) writer in a low register entertainment franchise (meaning it's all meaningless junk anyway) and somebody jumped at my throat, trying to tell me how morally bad that former writer is for writing immoral characters and supporting NFTs, and tried to make me into a bad person just for this opinion. Holy shit fandom nonnies, how do you deal with this absolute insane groupthink and puritan culture that modern fandoms have??
Daily exercise or just daily stretching, even if it's just mild
Pick up a new book, maybe check out the /m/ thread for recs
Do you have any deep cleaning to do? You might have neglected some rooms while you've been busy studying

How did you become a studyholic btw I almost wish this was my concern
Thank you both. I always overlook meditating but i might try to see if its actually something that works.
Btw anon, i became a studyholic through pure anxiety, after failing 2 classes and having to extend one semester.
I really hate sounding like a know-it-all motivational speaker, but heres how i did it. For reference, i went from a 2.16 semester gpa to 3.90ish the next semester (not cumulative gpa, obviously). And im an engineering major. I was 125th out of 229 people in my major and went up like 50 people that semester.
1) even if its extremely petty, find a reason to want straigh a's. I personally hate my major, so my reason to want straight a's was not academic related. Im in a very good university in my country (was good in high school, lost it after i became a uni studeny) but my friend who studies in a shit college always made sure that i knew his gpa was better than me, and he would always act like he's better than me. So i literally wanted to become better just to show that he is doing worse than me even in his shitty college. Its petty but im a petty bitch motivated by petty things.
2) tell urself that u'll push urself just for this semester. Once you see results, its addicting.
3) always have focused studies aka no notifications, no music thats too loud or upbeat. Just you and your work, and a 50 min timer (try 30 if 50 is hard). I use pomodoro timers online.
4) if you are in stem, NEVER memorize a solution. One thing changes in the question and you dont know how it should affect the result. Always know what you are doing, for which reason. Also if youre in stem, try to take one non-math/science course per semester. Humanities classes usually have less workload. If you hate humanities, take language etc.
6) you can skip class if the teacher sucks. But usually, i advice going to class. Also try to be a few classes ahead of schedule if you can. I finished a classes subjects 1 month before the teacher did (didnt go to class since the book was good at explaining). Was 40 points above the curve.
8) resolve mock exams or past years' exams multiple times. I would solve them like 5 times.
9) dont lose points on dumb stuff during semester like hw or attendance. It makes a difference.
10) dont skip sleep. Even if i have a final tomorrow, i always sleep at least 6 hpurs instead of studying all night. Its better to get up early and study, then to force ur brain to study at night when youre already tired.
If you ask for a study routine, i had around 4-6 classes per day most days. i would study 4 hours min. Projects/writing lab reports etc. are not included in these hours. If you just push urself until you see the results once, it becomes a habit.
Sorry for extremely long post. Im not a native speaker so hope i was able to express myself without sounding cocky. Its really not my intention. Im not particularly smart, so dont think that you have to "have it" to be a high achiever.
Samefag. 4 hours studying on top of 4-6 hour classes, not including time dedicated to school work that doesnt pay immediately (likr coding. You can code for 5 hours and get like 50 lines of code. Those 5 hours dont count as studying to me).
I know its extreme and having 10 hours or school work everyday IS too much. But thats just what it took for me, an average student, to get straight a's in a top uni for my country (idk how it is in the us or europe). You dont have to push as hard tbh cuz im pretty sure i would get an a in most classes with less work too. Its just to guarantee. U can definitely achieve better results while studying less. I just take a long time to fully understand stuff.

How do I set a routine and stick to it? I'm on a break currently and have a lot of free time, but this usually makes me very depressed, like when I have no routine and nothing to do. But I just can't bring myself to make myself a routine and follow it. I know it would make me feel better, I like order but since I know no one can enforce the routine, I just laze around and feel worse by the second. Any help?
Hm, this actually worked for me in a few instances in the past because I was just itching to take off the post-it note and feel satisfied about it, kek.

How does one take cute pictures of myself? In the mirror I look pretty cute but when I take a picture with my phone (Samsung J3V)I look weird, like my face is long and my forehead is really really big.
A friend gave me the O-kay to modify a bag she gifted me. I'm really into punk/goth/vkei shit and I planning to use black ink, a brush and a few black markers to draw some stuff. I already have some ideas but I wanted ask if anyone has any suggestions? Here is a pic of what it looks like.
>>1030256>emotions are a social construct
Failed logic, no they aren’t, a person can feel emotions even while isolated, boredom, sadness, anger, all of them, while intangible, are real to the person feeling them.>Me liking bags is a social construct
Bags? Or purses? Because a backpack doesn’t have any assigned gender roles, they’re unisex, anyone can wear or not wear a backpack. Purses on the other hand do have a gender role assigned which is that they’re carried by women, in that case, you liking a purse, specially one that’s only pretty and useless, could be considered a social construct.>bags are social constructs
No, because they have an utility other than being cute, unless you’re talking about a purse, of course, bags are used to carry things, they were created to accomplish a function, therefore, they can’t be a social construct, they’re not a vanity like makeup or purses.
At least that’s what I can get.
Google how the menstrual cycle works for better details on the stages but basically>uterus makes lining filled with blood and tissue in case of pregnancy>egg forms in ovary and eventually falls down fallopian tube and sticks somewhere in the lining. This is called ovulation and is the peak time to get pregnant>if no sperm fertilizes the egg within a certain timeframe, it dissolves and hormones signal the uterus to dispose of the lining. This is the period.
PMS usually occurs a week before the period due to changes in your estrogen levels. Some women get it 2 weeks before. If you find your symptoms to be intense you might wanna check with an obgyn to make sure everything's okay. If you want to keep track of the stages of your cycle to see when you're at the highest risk of getting pregnant, I suggest trying a period tracker app. I use Clue.
Hope this helps you.
Thanks for the response anons, I appreciate it! We only brought bags up, 'cause I've mentioned in the past about how I like collecting handbags. He said that liking things is an abstract concept, emotions aren't physical, nothing is real in the material sense. I did say that bags exist physically, sure what we define as a "bag" is not concrete, but you can still use objects to carry other objects. He replied with, if an alien came into contact with a bag they wouldn't know what it is, so it must be a social construct. "If a tree fell over, would it make a sound?" and all that. Hmm, yeah I'm not sure why he argued nothing is material, yet gender is real. My brain has melted.
You should throw a rock in his face and tell him that because material reality isn't real, he shouldn't feel any pain. For a more serious thought, I feel like cavemen and neanderthal didn't really have a concept of the things we have in the modern day today. Yet they were able to think things through and make primitive tools from scraps of whatever they could find and use them. Are rocks and sticks abstract and not real because they haven't yet figured out how to work the two together?.Maybe the process before actual thought is abstract but the end result is real and therefore material reality? Idek. Just throw a rock at his head because gender is definitely a social construct (kinda. Ot but I had a quick questioning moment when I was tripping hard on shrooms where I had to check in with myself about ~gender stuff~. That's the closest thing I have come across for gender but that's it. I don't think about it. I still think the modern concept of gender is bullshit and very much muddied. Inb4 someone calls me trans
Willing to put money on the bet that he'll never finish his humanities studies. Seriously. He's too stupid to finish college.
He's spouting bullshit on the same level as new-age spiritualists when they try 'explaining' the world. Just pulling stuff put of the ass that sounds deep.
Honestly no. I used to smoke weed constantly and the most depressed I've ever been was on it. Sucked the life out of me and made me anxious all the time, although I was smoking 24/7 so that was probably a contributing factor.
Maybe just give it a shot, and try different strains. I found out later that indicas make me depressed and anxious, while sativas give me a more "classic" high. Also get a strain with a lot of CBD to balance the THC. A lot of the strains now days are tipped way in favor of THC despite that making it awful for "calming down"

No, just remember to take breaks doing hands/arms exercise regularly. And I guess get used to some pain every now and then, things be like that when you do one thing a lot
