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?

This is a really stupid question and I'm sorry. I'm in desperate need for money, I can't work, because I'm going to school full time and the amount of knowledge we get has me learning 24/7. I listed everything I can online to sell, but that won't work fast enough.

What's the best way to rest your eyes and keeping your eyesight good? I spent years trying to make money by drawing and I don't want to give it up, but since I have to stare a lot at a screen my eyes are getting bad. Right now I try to stare in the distance every now and then and use apps that take away the blue light of the screen. I go outside daily. But even if I stare into the distance, how should I do it? Should I actually make an effort trying to focus on far away things or should I just look carelessly? Should I keep my glasses on while I do it?

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.

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:
-blankets/throws
-foldable chairs
-bean bags
-mirrors
-lamps
-pillows and pillow-covers
-rugs
-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
-cork board
-small figurines from charity shops
-fridge magnets

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.

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

So I’ve noticed that a lot of zoomer trends are just rehashed 90s/00s trends, repetition of the past with bow the lens of nostalgia and awareness of time firmly slipped on…but what is fairycore is recycle of? For me it’s just the cult-ish boho style that was so common in the 1970s, but I also see some mori kei.

Unrelated but I hate zoomer brands and how they style everything. The advertising, the marketing, it’s all so old and tired. A rehashing of some old look with aesthetic nostalgic cues. We’re truly at the end of history.

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.

Am I a misogynist for liking Bratz? I know they were a bad role model for little girls but I still think they're so cute and can't stop liking them no matter how much I try. Plus I turned out fine, haven't done anything to my face, don't wear makeup unless it's a special occasion and don't even think twice about what to put on. Not that I think those are bad things (actually I wish putting more effort into my appearance came more naturally), but just to give you an idea of what I'm like. They are one of my best memories growing up, little me was absolutely enthralled with having a doll that I knew I had the potential of growing up to look like, if that makes sense. Is it ok to like them as long as I acknowledge they were bad?

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.

What does empathy/compassion feel like for you? Do people tend to overstate how strongly they feel about things? When I see someone suffering I help because I know it's the "right" thing to do, but I don't feel sad or anything. If a friend or family member is going through a rough time, I don't really care at all, but of course I will talk to them and offer whatever help I can. I find that I constantly misinterpret other peoples feelings and they seem to care about stuff a lot more than I do, but a lot of the time I think they're probably just being hyperbolic.

There definitely are people out there who are way more empathetic than I am so it might be that they feel everyone's pain really deeply in a way I just don't. Someone I know could be going through a hard time, I will listen, make all the right faces, do everything I should. If I can help, I will help. But they don't weigh on my mind at all.

women are naturally more intuitive and they have been powerless historically. Also, witchcraft is common amongst gypsies and Africans exactly because they have been poor and very weak, when you are poor there's no material or physical way of getting back at others. What is presented in modern media or on the internet as "witchcraft" is a lie and literally an aesthetic. I've talked with an 80 year old witch and the tradition is passed orally from mother to daughter for hundreds of years and they use a secret language to cast the spells in. The language is not known by others and it sounds like demonic shit, it literally feels like you are summoning something from another dimension. The spells might work or not but usually those that badmouth others or try to hurt others are always miserable

No. 1020939

>>1020924
I think people vary a lot, I definitely wouldn't say you're abnormal but I don't think other people are exaggerating their emotional responses either. For me I guess I feel empathy in that when I hear about people's problems I automatically imagine how I would feel in that situation, so I feel emotionally affected in an egotistical sense. But then if their situation is something that wouldn't bother me if it happened to me then I just feel nothing, so I wouldn't call it real empathy. Imo the way someone responds to a person who is struggling is much more important than their internal level of empathy/compassion - if you genuinely listen and don't dismiss their feelings to their face, that means a lot more than if you have the 'right' emotional response to it, which isn't something you can even control to begin with.

I'm probably one of those "I'm an empath" fags but for me it's a mix of being able to put myself in the other person's shoes and knowing morally it's the right thing to do.

That said I liked both of the dolls as a kid, I just preferred Bratz.

Is this mostly online? You're going to see a disproportionate amount of autists because they struggle or are exhausted by real life socializing. There's also the self-diagnosis trend. Could also do with age of women having children in US being higher and compounding, since autism in parents increases likelihood in child. Also, can autists in your country get the support they need to do better and thus be able to have more of a presence online? Would higher-functioning autistic people bother to get diagnosed in your country?

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.

>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

No anon you aren’t misogynistic lmao, dolls are dolls. The moral panic surrounding Bratz, Barbies, anything under the Mattel sun is kind of stupid. I get that fantasy might escalate into irl territory but the arguments are “oh she has an eating disorder because they stylized them to the extreme!” “they are sexualizing them because of the fashion they wear” “they are teaching girls to be whores”. Barbie is ridiculously skinny but she also has a million fucking careers and one of them is being a princess on an island walking around with a fugly elephant, does that seem realistic for any kind of real life human being? No dolls will ever weigh significant value in the real world, that is why children play dolls to invest in their imaginative worlds that will always be separate from real life but it doesn’t make it any less important to them. Also the idea behind Bratz was to get away from how sterile the Barbie brand became, I’m not a dollfag but I would assume that something very similar to Bratz would be Monster High dolls and something similar to Barbie would be Ever After High that’s the only comparison I could make kek, Bratz was more 1990s-early 2000s fashionista and Barbie was for horse girls

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.

Toxic 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:
-blankets/throws
-foldable chairs
-bean bags
-mirrors
-lamps
-pillows and pillow-covers
-rugs
-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

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.

It comes from the original imageboard i.e. 2chan, which being Japanese used Japanese terminology. The verb "sageru" (pronounced sah-geh-roo) means "to lower" hence it's usage to prevent bumping a thread to the top when you reply to it and it eventually got shortened to sage. The term carried over to 4chan and from there it just became a part of the imageboard vernacular.

No. 1022827

>>1022791
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)

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.

No. 1022885

>>1022884

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.

No. 1022895

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.

I’m trying to remember what I think was a visual novel or dating sim with a nautical theme.

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:
- Bathmat
- Tableware
- 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.

Yes I think that's a bad idea, the scratch marks will be very visible on plastic.

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.

What are good signs that a job position is basically doing nothing all day? I've got a nothing job right now, maybe 2 hours of work a day and very low expectations from the managers, it's basically be willing to do something if the need arises. But in the interview the manager said we could work maybe an hour of overtime here and there so I expected it to be demanding. Unfortunately it's ending in 6 months.

Before this I had a job that was tangentially related to my interests but fucking sucked because I was busy doing redundant bullshit all day. This one I can't even make up shit to do there's so little of it. Both said they were routine jobs.

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 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.

Shops with lots of reviews and buyer photos means you'll probably get the item. Outright scams should be pretty obvious, brand new shops with no reviews or very fake looking reviews. Most commercial looking sales pictures are "reference images" as in the maker references whatever is the picture but they didn't make the item in the photos. This is the norm on there, so expect it. See if you can find pictures of the actual item usually at the end of all the reference images so you know what to expect to receive. Expect low quality goods and be pleasantly surprised if they turn out decent. Don't buy anything that goes inside your body. Don't expect to ever make any returns, but if something doesn't arrive any decent shop will send the missing pieces out if you just message them. Most items on AliExpress can be found cheaper and better quality on Taobao but it's a little harder to order on there.

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.

If the person already dyes their hair diff colors a lot then I don’t think it’s strange. It’s a way of self expression and can be cute to be matchy. If they only dye their hair in reference to whoever they’re dating it’s maybe a bit iffy, but overall feels like a nitpick about someone you don’t like more than a red flag.

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.

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!

my roommate kept her cat out of her room most of last night, and in the living area where it meowed in the early morning. the cat's food and litterbox are in her room.

It's probably hungry or thirsty or needs to use its litterbox, yes. Will the cat be okay if it can't get in until she wakes up, yes. Would it be better if you just let it in, yes.

The real world is full of texture and noise. You can make great works without them if you're skilled, but often some kind of texture overlay gives it some sense of tangibility. Texture overlays and noise can also dull down oversaturation and make lines look softer. That's why it can also be an instant improvement to mediocre digital art when done right, since amateurs are still learning about color and line.

What would I feel like if I was in a position where I was gruesomely dying and that exact scenario happened? Also a mix of just seeing the totally outlandish and freakish.

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.

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.

>monotonous
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
sound familiar?

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.

how can i get men to treat me more like a pretty lady and less like one of their dude friends?

i realized that men tend to treat me like i’m one of their homies, instead of a woman they’re interested in. not sure if that makes sense. i want men to treat me with respect, not treat me how they treat eachother.

i think it has to do with the way i act too, i’m trying to act more ~womanly~ and less like “one of the dudes.”

i think i’m probably way too nice to men, i have to start being rude, it seems to make them act better when you treat them like they’ve not human.

Why does my neck almost always hurt when I wake up? I sleep with 2 pillows & sleep on my back. I stopped sleeping on my side because I have a habit of craning my neck weirdly when I sleep on my side, which obviously causes pain. But just sleeping on my back, neck straight, I wake up and have awful neck pain. I only just turned 20. I feel like I’m way too young to have these problems. Am I doing something wrong?

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.

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.

They're not my friends or anything. Random ladies just compliment me a lot when I go about my day - some cashiers, hairdressers, that type of thing. However, even men I'm friends with refuse to pay me a single compliment. Even mundane stuff like telling me my hair looks good after a haircut.

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

What is this ability/process called in psychology (if it has a name)? When you talk to someone and filter out what they need or don't need to know and speak accordingly. Like, you know it'd be inappropriate to talk about your gynecological examination during a meeting or when you know that asking someone out on a date 2 minutes after you met would probably end up with a refusal.

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.

Aw hell yeah! Finally something i specialize in. Baby jumping spiders will eat almost anything. The easiest thing to catch imo are little ants. Make sure that everything you get is at least half alive but that they dont bite back. I crush ants jaws with a tweezer and feed my baby spiders that way. To catch fruit flies use a ziploc pag and throw them in the freezer for 20 seconds and it will become dormant. Little spiders have a hard time holding down a meal because they're inexperienced. You can buy crickets in bulk and they're cheap. Spiders dont eat every day, more like every other day and sometimes longer. Overall dont be surprised that your jumping spider becomes used to you. Theyre smarter than most spiders and they can memorize your face and routines.

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.

No. 1029522

Write them down, make a checklist and force yourself to do them. Then, once you start to feel like lazing again, think about all the times you've wasted lazing and doing nothing in the past, and compare it to how much productive you are now. You decide how you feel about it after that. Are you feeling much better doing something? Or would you rather go back and laze while thinking of the things you wanted to do?

got them cause they were super cheap , surprisingly haven't dropped them exactly because they are so smooth, already went through one blue pen and i regret not buying one more pack, hopefully they'll be available in my country soon again.

con is that the black runs a little bit more on the grey side and they're not super precise. i use them for drawing mostly but they're comfy for writing too. if they're accessible to you they're a great cheap find.

As for the photos - either selfie stick or a different phone. A lot of phones have lenses that completely distort the way your face looks like, there are filters to balance it out but since it's just a filter it's not gonna look on point the same as you'd look in the mirror. Selfie stick would help in a sense of that from a distance the distortion won't affect your face so much

To take flattering pictures of yourself, you should probably try taking pictures on natural lighting rather than artificial lighting, know your angles and best expressions, practicing on the mirror helps a bit but the camera always changes how you view yourself. And take pictures throughout the day, you may find an hour of the day more flattering than another. That mostly what I do.

Haha, perhaps I should have gave context. I have a friend who studies humanities; he showed me an essay he was writing. Somehow, we were debating about gender and social constructs. I said I don't think gender is real, he said just because something isn't physical, doesn't mean it isn't real. He then said that emotions itself are a social construct, me liking bags are a social construct, bags itself are a social construct. So yeah, it left me pretty confused.

No. 1030273

>>1030256
Is he saying that someone liking something is a social construct? I don't really see or follow his logic. Bags literally exist in physical reality; people make them from all kinds of material which are sold or given away for other people to use or hold stuff or to decorate their outfit. You can argue that emotions technically are physical, as some parts of brains become more activated than others and hormones are released as an effect. Emotions also have a visible tangible effect on people, from one killing their friend due to anger or another whooping due to joy. I can't tell if your friend is obtuse or I'm just uneducated about philosophy or whatever this is.

>>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.

If an alien comes into contact with a banana, does it know how to peel it in order to eat it? Does it even know it can eat the banana? I don't think so. Is a banana therefore a social construct? Idk man sounds like he's spouting a load of bullshit lmao

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)

/his/anons, a bit of an esoteric (and rambling) question but

is it recently that cultures treat excluded ethnicities as having equally dangerous men and women? In Western countries where one race is overrepresented over the others in crime stats the vast majority (like 90%) come from the males of that group, while in contrast the females of that group would not have extremely high crime rates over females of other ethnic groups. Yet, when those "problematic" ethnicities are talked about in Western countries the women are typed as violent and dangerous as their men.

When I read 18th to 19th century Western autistic theories about races I noticed they don't have this mentality and generally treat the women of the race they're oppressing as much less of a threat than their men (and always treat the men as a "threat"/dominant no matter what) but still regard the women as having antisocial behaviors (like usually sexually promiscuity in their eyes). Are women and men in an ethnic group regarded the same in the current era because of something to do with modern gender politics and feminism erasing the distinctions between men and women in the first place?

My depressive episodes are unbearable, the meds are only making them less frequent but not any easier, do you think giving weed a shot would be a good idea? I've read it can help short term and it's all I need honestly, a few hours break

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"

If it's on twitter there's a way to only receive notifications from people you already follow or even nobody at all, all the notifications from the people you didn't approve will be muted.

You can also tune the sensetivity of your tablet so you don't have to press down as hard to get 100%. I have sensitive wrists and have it set up so it's at 100% with about half the usual pressure. You can also adjust it in some drawing programs like Clip Studio.

why do so many people in first world countries barely consider apprenticeships when considering what they want to do with their lives? I will admit that apprenticeships aren't for everyone or for every job, but for some reason, a lot of people would rather go to uni/college without knowing what they even what to do, don't even bother learning about what graduates usually do with their degree. I will admit that I don't know what apprenticeships for art are like, but they seem more trustworthy than going to college/uni for it, or just degrees where you're on your own in general. I also find it weird that people take maths degrees only because they think that they'll get a 'serious, well-earning' job from it, even though most maths degree majors want to become researchers or academics

Schools don't sell it to students the way they push you towards uni. It wasn't even mentioned as a proper option back then when I was in Y11/6th form. There was a point when I almost went down that route after leaving university and after looking at some of the apprenticeships available… you could tell you wouldn't go very far after completing it. I think the govt helps funds it over here so these smaller companies just wanted easy cheap labour for a couple years while you have no real prospects lined up afterwards. That said, there were still some great ones available occasionally like GSK or some hospital-based ones. I do wish it became a part of the norm because imo it's great idea to have people work and study together in certain fields, but I guess that would remove the "novelty" of a degree and all the money that surrounds university.

Also kinda funny you say that because after all that hell I went through I'm going back to uni now for a maths degree kek
