HOW IN THE FUCK AM I SUPPOSED TO GET MY MOM'S CAT OUT FROM BEHIND THE WASHER? Been putting food dishes through the little space there is, water too and she has come out to do her business in her litterbox but I am just fucking done. It's been 2 fucking weeks. This is the only cat I have kinda regretted knowing, I have raised so many cats but I am so tired and nothing comes to mind. I just wanna get her out so I can put her in her own room, she'd be so much more comfortable.

It's sort of like an upside down L shaped little hallway she's in so I'm worried she wouldn't drink or eat if she didn't see the food right in the little space aaa. She did use the litterbox though so might move the food further away also. At least I catch little glimpses of her dumb face while she eats. Plan C will be just yanking the washer out or something, I give it a week or so before that. Sorry for the novel, I am just so done.

What's the backstory? Is she sick or old? Did your mom get her recently? You've probably already tried this but my instinct would be to sit in the room with her and talk to her in a soothing voice and try to get her to approach me while putting out yogurt or tuna in a position that she has to poke her head out a little bit and gradually increase the space between the washer and the food until she comes out enough that you can grab her. If it were me, I would move the washer and yank her out asap. I think if you leave her for a week she's just going to get more and more distressed.

Pretty sure this is at least partly genetic, half my family can do it and the other half can't. I'm good at remembering the route to places but I do it completely by landmarks, I can't keep track of which direction I'm facing or how far I've turned at all.

You can probably train yourself to do it better by doing activities like orienteering that force you to use a compass though?

I have a very good sense when it comes to cardinal directions because I can think of the place as an overhead map inside of my head and have a very good visual memory, but jesus christ I just can't tell left from right.

not at all, anon. i have a decent sense of N,S,E,W, but only because i live by a massive body of water so it's very easy to reference that for direction. when i'm a place without that reference, i'm totally lost.

>>552067
anon, we're the same. i have to seriously think about it for a couple of seconds before i can say 'left' or 'right'.

another one of those things i can never remember is the respective names of spades and clubs in playing cards. i get a spade kinda looks like a shovel, but still, my brain never makes the connection and i usually say the wrong suite when i put a card down.

I genuinely can not tell directions, the most I can do is following a mini map. Every time I have to go to an unfamiliar place I'm wrecked with anxiety because all it takes is my GPS fucking up and I'll be lost forever. Highways and roads all look the fucking same to me, can't tell if it's going north east upside down or in a loop. Roads being shut down for repairs and detours are rather high on the list of things that make me want to kill myself.

How attractive are Korean men on average? And are most them tall and somewhat muscular?

No. 552280

What do you do if a friend, a good person you still want to talk to, troons out? I'm pretty sure they're trans'ing because they're insecure about being more feminine than the avg guy.
They posted this https://turn-me-into-a-girl.com/ and that's when I thought "Man, idk why but I have a weird feeling about all this". I know the site's message is naive/nonsensical af, but this is the straw that broke the camel's back, and now i don't know what to do. The group of friends I'm in is extremely "trans rights", and I also don't want to hurt my good friend's feelings; is there a way/any reason to tell him I think he might not want to transition?

Honestly I would just try to help them come to terms with themselves. There's nothing wrong with being a feminine guy, but society shits on men who can't be as masculine as possible. I would also try to give them a realistic picture of the reality of something like this because its life altering. If your other friends are on the other side of the fence I'm sure they'll just give skewed pretty picture of what this will entail. Feel free to ignore the troll lol

No. 552304

Disregarding the racebaiting troll, casually talk about the horror of neovaginas with him, and try to make him feel comfortable about being a feminine guy.
I'm sure he doesn't want to end up looking like Riley Dennis or one of those horrible meme pictures, so I'd make sure he knows that it's not a light decision, neither is it something you can go back on without fucking yourself up and losing friends (detransitioners are treated like scum).

men that are female envious are usually a deep seated misogynists in denial. don't let a man manipulate you into coddling his feelings when your alarm bells are going off. that being said… if he's already convinced himself he'll be happier larping as woman, it might be better to just cut and run or ignore the issue instead of inspiring the rage and ostracization of your friend circle. it would take a lot of effort and great argumentative skills to successfully convince a small minded man that it isn't the right decision for him- especially when every aspect of society that he surrounds himself with will tell him it's amazing to be trans and also live as a woman. consider how much effort you're willing to expend on this man that's already exhibiting misogynistic red flags and consider if he would do the same amount of emotional labor for you.

this is solid advice, i wish i'd just cut out everyone at the beginning who became nb or trooned out rather than even trying to be rational. they honestly dont give a shit and will just call you out as a terf or transphobic bigot since women are easy targets. would've saved me a lot of effort to just cut them out rather than string along for months trying to talk it out, and still end up as the ultimate villain for not agree with troon logic.

If you mean "as opposed to waxing hair" then no, not really, but they do look thicker. Shaving means you just cut hairs so the end of you hairs that you just cut will look thicker until it's fully grown again. When you wax you hairs or remove them with tweezers you remove the entire thing so it has to grow back entirely, and the end of your hairs will be as thin as usual.

What, are you in the market for conversion therapy? As >>552628 said, pornsickness could make you turned on by the other sex. Hence why straight AGPs find themselves attracted to men. Regarding FTMs, I think some detrans women say it made their sexual interests more intense, so a lesbian might have greater drive to self-harm through sex with men due to hypersexuality. Though I do believe more FTMs transition due to autoandrophilia and wanting to have gay sex. Video is from a lesbian about how she believed she was a gay man.

People who walk around with their outdoor shoes in their house need to mop all the time. Disgusting.

I visited a friend's house before and I always remove my shoes when entering. I regretted it instantly, grains of dirt stuck to my feet and there was visible mud streaks. These people mopped 2x a week but it didn't mean anything since they had an open back door and let dogs run around inside and out while the family walked around with dirty ass shoes on. They even lifted them onto the table and armrest, where you may put your head.

Worst thing is those who enter their bed with shoes on. Or people who put their dirty ass suitcase onto a bed. Some people "clean" all the time but there's no point when they live like gremlins.

Number of people living there, like another anon said, but it also depends on peoples daily habits. I share a bathroom with one other person and I only clean it like once a month, sometimes once every other month. I know I should do it more for sanitary reasons but in terms of actual griminess it's never that bad, just kind of dusty/linty but no stains or anything. I went to a friends place and her bathroom was filthy (soap scum, toothpaste, and makeup everywhere) even though she had one roommate and cleaned it as often as I did. I told her that I usually throw some water around in my shower after I'm done to rinse the soap residue off and she thought I was insane.

Does that information if you’ve viewed it or scrolled past it stay in your cookies or anything?

I feel like it depends. OMAD is a legitimate way to lose weight if you're consuming enough calories and nutrients. However, if you're worried, maybe you should take a step back and think about how you view food. Some questions I'd consider are:
Do you unhealthily obsess over calories/food intake? Do you feel guilty or extremely distressed when you eat something that falls outside of your food-related goals? Do you find yourself hating your body/appearance? And so on.

I don't think any way of eating can be inherently disordered, just the mental/emotional factors that may determine how someone eats.

I only started wearing glasses a year ago after a life of perfect vision and while I scored with cute frames I honestly really miss my bare face without them and want to be able to switch between both options. but by the time quar is over I'll have aged out of my family plan and I haven't researched a new plan nor am i really going to be able to afford my own insurance anytime soon. was supposed to eventually go to my optometrist for a fitting before the world stopped.

Honestly anon, you should go to an optometrist and do the test for contact lenses. it's important that they fit well or it could damage your eyes further. i have a slight astigmatism in one eye and normal contact lenses (drugstore-ones, fairly cheap but not bad quality) don't really fit perfectly and they end up hurting my eyes.

if you wanna wear contact lenses, do it the safe way. and for me they aren't expensive (but i live in switzerland, idk how it is where you live). for 6 months i pay around 80-100 dollars so that's super fair.

I once had an online boyfriend when I was around 10 on Habbo, my sister somehow found out and I ended up fully sobbing and crying, begging her not to tell our parents. Lol.

Funny thing is: After my brother was born, they never said anything like that to him and even went as far as ENCOURAGING him to get a girlfriend. I hate men and their privilege so much.

I was also never allowed to visit my friends' houses and have a sleepover, even if they knew the kids parents and talked to them before. They weren't allowed to visit me either and there was a time in middle school where people would make fun of me for being "homeless" over that aka no one's ever been to my house before and I always wore the same clothes out of insecurity = anon is homeless.

Holly is with Jared but he seems to ignore her everywhere, never interacts with her on streams, never likes her selfies while she tries to get his attention as hard as she can. The more time passes the more miserable she looks. Heidi is doing fine, she sometimes vents on twitter about how Jared gave her trust issues but she is working on it, while Holly said numerous manipulative and stupid things throughout this year and definitely doesn't feel guilty or anything. Lately she looked especially greasy and sad, Jared started liking selfies of other girls and interacting with them while still ignoring Holly, and this is the face she made when Heidi notification appeared on her AC stream.
Basically, we laugh because she got what she wanted - Jared, who is a manipulative jerk with porn addiction. And while getting what she wants she destroyed both his marriage and her own. Both Heidi - Jared's ex, and Ross - her ex are moving on and are happy.

So that makes sense why she has only female 'besties' IRL with whom she never hangs out (but came to all of them to give her a job after she got kicked out) while talking only to men on internet… Honestly I considered this part really sus ever since the beginning, because it seemed to me that the way she spregged about her besties was both middle-school level and both seemed like she just uses them because they've been friends for awhile.
And yes, I spoke my opinion that I would always prefer being progressive (if i had a choice, I said that I don't care about such stuff that much, never thought of it so deeply that I would be calling myself trad or not) over being traditional, explaining that I was born in a country that (still) has a huge patriarchy and traditional propaganda.

It honestly made me feel really sad for her ever since she said such words. When I started saying that I will always support women over men, said that I believe that women are even better than men because of the way we were raised, she started spregging that 'not all men'.
I sound like ''feminazi'' here, but I meant that women are calmer than men and are better at handeling situations, and most of the time they are not the 'woman-child' of relationships.

Ever since she somehow started trying to throw dramas on me whenever I would come over (she is, unfortunatley, a sister of my significant other), even though I've seen it coming because ever since the first day we met she was showing jealousy traits, you know, these kinds of stares and creepy compliments that involve her degrading herself. Ever since the second I met her, it was written that she is really insecure all over her face.

I feel bad, thinking I did something wrong but I never tried picking fights with her or anything. It bums me out how she also is trying to ignore the existence of mine and her big brothers relationship. I really want to talk to her about it, but whenever I try she literally runs out of the room like a child.

It seems like its really hard to…Befriend women IRL… I never said anything mean to her.

>I haven't talked about it much with anyone because I feel like people will think I'm lying/exaggerating.

Seek a trauma-informed therapist if that's the case. They're literally trained to help clients overcome childhood abuse, and they won't accuse you of lying. Avoid psychologists and psychiatrists, as they tend to be more focused on diagnosing you and treating you with medication. Not that they'd necessarily accuse you of lying either, but if you're more focused on healing from abuse, rather than treating individual symptoms (such as depression/anxiety) that you struggle with as a result of the abuse, therapy is a better bet.

You can use websites like psychology today to find therapists in your area that specialize in childhood trauma. Use the filters on the left to narrow down specifically what you struggle with, and it will pull up specialists that are trained to tackle those issues.

Oftentimes, therapy is a long process, it might take years and you might even feel like you're getting worse in the beginning. At least that's what people keep telling me. I always feel a bit better after my therapy sessions though, and I've been going for three months now as well. The subjects are hard to talk about but at least I feel like I have someone to talk to. Maybe the therapist isn't right for you but I'd definitely give her a few more chances if I were you.

Meat is a bit gross to me from so long not eating it but I'd probably get over it and start eating it again. I support lab grown meat since that's going to be the actual way factory farming stops once lab grown becomes more profitable. I get the impression that some vegans are against it just because they get their whole personal identity from being vegan and want there to still be a reason to preach about being vegan so need to find a flaw in the actual solution.

No. 554153

>>554124
Before considering consuming it I'd want there to be a few peer-reviewed studies on its impacts on the environment.
If it has a significantly lower carbon footprint than "normal" meat (be it industrial or organic) then I would be totally for it being more widely available. However if a diet that includes it has a bigger carbon footprint than a local vegan diet, then I would say it defeats the purpose a bit.

From a more personnal point of view, I don't think I'd eat it because I'd be too afraid it will make cravings worse. Same reason I won't eat eggs even if they're from someone's backyard: it was difficult to stop even if I didn't go cold turkey, I think refreshing my memory of tasty animal products will make it harder to stay vegan.
However some people argue that having an ethical lab grown meat will make it easier for people to stay vegetarian/vegan because they won't need to eat real stuff when they get cravings. It's all theory tho, as far as I know there's been no studies on animal product substitutes and whether they help transitioning diets or make it more difficult.

On the ethical side idk. From a purely utilitarian pov, sure a few animals are killed to get the cells but how many animals are not uselessly brought into the world and then killed as a result? It sucks that it would still support the killing of animals for a profit but at this point it would be the least terrible option.

Depends, if your professor has proctorio or any other proctoring software then your screen is going to be recorded at the very least. Your professor may also enable your webcam so that the software can record you and your microphone.

If you do plan to cheat (unless it's open note) hopefully your professor only has the screen recording available so you can look at your textbook. Otherwise you're kind of out of luck.

The softwares all have some sort algorithm that tracks your time on questions, I'm not sure how it really works but it does give your professor red flags that you may be cheating and they can review it.

Also lived in Korea for a while, and I think I did find Korean men overall move attractive on average than other populations (I'm from MX/US)
But! It wasn't necessarily their build or faces–they were just more idk, uniformly well-groomed? Trends in Korea are pretty strong so most young men will make an effort to keep up and it's easy to get access to cheap, nice-looking clothes. I did find about 1/3 of them to be quite tall (maybe 6ft, usually accompanied by an equally tall gf), the rest were probably short by Western standards (maybe 5'5-5'7). Rarely in between lol. Didn't see anyone fat but also not really muscular either.

For reference, I lived around Sinchon/Hongdae so I was surrounded by a lot of trendy young people, and I think it totally depends on the area/social class/etc, like any other country. Sorry for the overly detailed answer, I just miss Korea.

Because they can legally pay people way less by sourcing them from a "recruiter" company. Which is why contract hires don't technically work for those companies despite doing all the same shit their direct employees do.
Companies save beaucoup money this way, and they don't have to offer those contractors benefits or nothin.

If a company really likes someone they can "buy out" their contract from the recruitment agency but there's really no incentive to do so most the time. Usually only happens when they know their employees will be leaving or transferring so they'll be short staffed otherwise.

I looked again by searching for author by genre, and then sorting by number of series. All of the top ones are female… At least, according to the website. You never know on the internet. No matter how random I try to be, it's still about 80/20 female/male. I don't know what part of the internet you grew up on but I've never talked to people who use "shoujo ai/shounen ai", I just call everything yuri and BL, it's much easier. You could say GL if you hate the word yuri.

Alright I'm gonna reveal myself as a degenerate by asking if you all think hentai is also contrary to radical feminism (particularly the argument against the exploitation of women in porn).

Prior to a day ago I hadn't watched hentai before but I found a series geared towards female watchers and I actually liked it shamefully. I'm sure I'll get a side eye for saying this but it wasn't violent or degrading, nor was it pedophilic loli shit. I've sworn off of porn a while back because of how much it disgusts me as a radfem, but I don't have the same feelings towards hentai and literotica. The most disgust I feel in regards to hentai is weeb scrotes who advertise their hentai addictions. I actually think literotica is the least exploitative/harmful of all of them but I need visual stimulation.

Firstly, what is this mythical female-targeted hentai series you mentioned?

Hentai is argued to be "better" than irl porn solely on the basis that real people aren't being exploited. It still does the same amount of brain damage. Written words and drawn pictures can still meme people into degeneracy, actually they can give people more fucked up fetishes than irl porn ever could. After all, real people can not perform "all-the-way-through" or "eye socket fucking", and yet there are now those who are turned on by it all the same because of hentai. But this is still fine, after all, it's not real, right?

There will always be escalation, no exception. People undoubtedly seek out as real of a simulation of their impossible/fictional fetishes as they can. Do you know how much 3D hyper realistic snuff loli porn there is on wildly popular websites like pixiv and patreon? There are sickeningly real images of children bodies, all out in the open and accepted because hey they have anime faces!
With the way technology is going, it'll be incredibly easy to make fake too real, at which point "no woman was harmed in the making of this" is irrelevant. It harms women all the same.
So if you're looking to hear that hentai is a viable alternative to irl porn, you just have to think a bit longer to see that it's not.

I think people have a misconception about the idea of hydration
clear pee doesn't mean you drank too much water–it just means you have a lot of water in your system, not an amount that is dangerous or anything
Super gross dark pee is gross, but it doesn't mean you're dehydrated. Could you use more water? Yes, but you're not going to die if your pee is dark for more than a couple days.

I think people think of hydration in terms of beauty terms instead of medical terms. Drinking more water is beneficial for your skin/body/overall beauty, but you don't want to bloat–But none of that has anything do do with your actual physical health

Just drink water when you get thirsty and you'll be fine

Is it really that bad to live with your mom?

Im in my 20s and I still live with my mom since its the most beneficial set up for us, we are able to keep the family home that would be too big for one person otherwise, groceries, bills, etc are manageable and cheap since they are split between two people, my mom doesn’t understand jack shit about computers so i handle the banking and finances that rely on apps and the internet, we also seem to have pretty healthy boundaries when it comes to going out, im allowed to leave whenever i want and used to be able to come back whenever I wanted too (as farfetched as it sound my city had a serial killer who targeted college aged girls last year, fucking bizarre i know) with only basic questions asked, where im going and when should i be expected back, now i have a 2-3 am curfew which still sounds reasonable, same with my mother, she tells me where she’s going and that’s it whenever someone comes back the owe no explanation or details either.
She insists on doing the household chores but only because she doesn’t like my more soft cleaning style, she goes all in with the bleach, so im relegated to finance, groceries and cooking, it still seems pretty fair since we do have all tasks evenly set up.

Its a pretty cushy set up that allowed me to go to a much better college than if i insisted on moving out and living alone, but I can’t help to feel weird since everyone else in the internet finds living with your parents weird lol

Another is still in full-time education for their doctorate so he’s staying at home too. It’s really not that uncommon in today’s economy.

Absolutely have a talk with her about it– just try to phrase things in a way that doesn't seem like you're trying to control her or "kinkshame." You need to have a honest dialogue with her about grooming. One thing you could try is getting her to talk to women who have been groomed and are recovering from it.

Is there anything I can do to avoid vanity/narcissism while being meticulous about my appearance?
I notice that when I spend lots of time on makeup, hair, fashion, etc. I become a lot more self-absorbed and judgemental. I feel awful being that way. When I'm negligent about those things I focus more on my life, hobbies, and interests and don't care so much about the image I'm projecting/how I'm being seen.

Is the idea of an entire site dedicated to discussing lolcows problematic?
Like, dedicating yourself to this drama, pouring over all of their posts and every instance of them you can find, basically stalking them by trying to dig up whatever information you can about them–is that wrong?
Or is there some sort of reason that it's acceptable?

Truthfully I come to lolcow.farm because it's a good place to interact with people who aren't dumb, incel, neckbeard nerds. But I guess I'm just wanting to understand the parts of the website that form the basis for everything.

I don’t think anyone is singularly obsessing over one cow. Most cows have some sort of following or someone finds them and they have the urge to discuss their strange behavior with others and cannot find the outlet irl. I can’t turn to my boyfriend and say omg did you see what Onision just posted, my bf doesn’t care and doesn’t even fully understand the situation of all that’s been done through out the years. Its more of a discussion of behavior most the time, and with others like Shayna, I was seriously one of the girls following her on tumblr and than was so confused seeing kiddie inspired porn all over my timeline. That personally affected me for example, and I wanted to talk about it to others who understand. I don’t actually know a single person that posts their personal information as much as cows do, I don’t know anyone who posts like that or has more than 500 followers. It’s not a normal thing, these people can easily delete their social media accounts and move on. there is absolutely no reason they can’t delete their online pages if they feel so negatively effected. It’s not a good thing to do, but neither is posting pics of your asshole for $5 or telling 10k strangers your every thought. We live in an experiential age, we don’t know how social media is going to end up effecting any of us, but it can’t be healthy to post the way cows do. It’s not “healthy” to gossip but that’s what we’re doing. We’re just gossiping about the strangers who somehow get “famous” from social media.

I feel something is deeply wrong with me.
So, I'm currently dating this dude for like a few months now. We haven't met irl obviously. But I have some weird feelings about the whole thing. The thing is, whenever I am talking to him I feel so good and I feel happy and seriously feel like I really like him. I tell him so too. But whenever I stop talking to him and just go on about my day I started doubting if this is really worth it and should I really invest my feelings, I get thoughts like we are probably eventually gonna break up. But then when I talk to him I just never wanna let him go. I even get teary eyed expressing my feelings to him everytime.

No. 555374

right, that's kind of what i thought the general consensus was here. i'm the same way and call myself straight but it feels kind of incorrect considering i think of women when i fap and developed sexual feelings for women long before i did for men. though, no one needs to know any of that so i guess straight is a better "functional" label even it's not completely accurate.

still, it's funny that the same doesn't apply to men. i can't imagine a man fully fapping to other guys and having crushes on them being able to say "nah i'm still straight because i don't actually date/fuck men." they would be called closet gay/bi by men and women alike.

Stumbled across a youtube channel called “Dad, How do I?” and it’s just a father giving tutorials on some basic stuff (changing tires, unclogging stuff, typical dad tasks) and I can’t help but wonder where do dads just seem to learn all this stuff? Obviously probably not all men or dads know, but even though my dad is pretty dumb when it comes to a lot of things, he can fix our bathroom or kitchen stuff with no problems. All I know is that my dad lost his my grandpa when he was very young, and doesn’t have education past middle school, so I don’t know where he learned it from. But it seems like common male/dad knowledge to just… know how to unclog a sink or use a stud finder lol. Where the hell do dads learn all these dad tasks, especially prior to the internet?

It’s a dumb question but I would always find it funny when I rant to my best friend about my dad doing dumb shit and she says “my dad too!!” like it’s just a universal dad thing…

No. 555422

from their dads or male family members, it's just handed down knowledge.

I guess their own dads and just general experience out of necessity? Some skills were just more important to have in the past and you couldn't immediately outsource the work to an expert.

Fair point. I didn't think of it like that. I can see now how a person might consider themselves bi without dating a woman/man

There's definitely a stigma against gay/bi men, but that's probably because men find lesbian relationships sexy, but no one really sexualizes gay relationships the same way. Like talk about how they thinks its hot to have a threesome with two girls, but it's a lot less common to hear a woman saying they want a threesome with two dudes.

i think a lot of men just have good intuition about how things fit together and they seem to find it very interesting compared to women. remember boys taking apart mechanical pencils in class and trying to put them together over and over? cars and plumbing is just an extension of that. i only fuck with that stuff on as needed basis. i don't find it very interesting in its own right.
the same thing could be said about girls and fashion/styling. a lot of us never learned from our mother or anywhere else in particular but we figured it out through trial and error how to do hair and put together looks. and then you have some trans women who have absolutely astounding bad taste in fashion and the worst hairstyle you've ever seen because they never cared about it until transitioning. a little intuition and a lot of interest goes a long way.

I want to pick up a new hobby and I can't decide if I should learn to sew or crochet. Which one is better and easier for a total newbie to learn? I'm mostly interested in making little dolls and plushies, not so much clothes. Crocheting seems a bit less intimidating to me but I really like the results of sewed plushes. My mother is also pretty good at sewing and has a couple of machines she would let me use, so I have access to a machine from day one, but it still seems quite difficult to learn. I just don't know anything about either hobby. Any advice from more experienced sewers/crocheters?

For me smells and touch always help, I can sit next to a window or smell some scents I like and I actually feel like I am a living being and not some kind of robot.

My therapist also helped me out with some grounding techniques, like box breathing and meditation. Meditation has always helped me more than box breathing. I just lay on the floor and kind of exist for a bit.

I'm 28 and I just started a skin care routine tell me if I'm doing the right thing or not. Might as well start now than never.

First I wash my face with simple micellar water gel wash.
Then I use gommage rosette gel to exfoliate
After that I wipe my face with a stridex pad.
Next I spray on some Pyunkang Yul toner mist and I then use mizon 100% hyaluronic serum. For sun screen I used spf 50+++ canmake gel sun screen. I use the loreal charcoal clay mask 3 times a week.

how do i make my facebook hacker proof??????

>bf hacked into two google accounts, insta and finsta, whatssapp and obviously facebook messenger to read my messages

>he promised he would never do it again but also said "i didnt even need your password, silly" and "i didnt delete the history, but i could have, if i delete the activity youd never know i ever entered your account" like it felt like a fucking threat but hes like ofc i would never do it again but im like hmmmm can i know????

i feel like i have no privacy anymore. i feel watched. i dont think i can talk to my close friends the way i used to. he promised multiple times not to enter but im still very afraid cause he literally said he could do it and id never found out about it. i dont feel safe talking to my friends anymore cause im afraid hes reading everything i say

i dont know how the fuck he does it anons. he did it while i was asleep. and like for example i found text messages from instagram with the codes to enter my account, but like how did he know the codes without having my phone??? how did he hack that'????? is nothing hacker prooof???

Does he have access to your primary email? Get a simple password manager or something on your computer or phone. He might be getting in because your passwords are retarded or you use the exact same thing everywhere.

How do I become intrinsically motivated?

I recently had this realization that I do things for others' sake.
Like, I can only make myself do the dishes or clean my apartment if I know my roommates coming home. If it was up to me I would live in a place full of trash.
I also always struggled with keeping up doing my hobbies. I just have this feeling that doing things for my own entertainment is not worth doing, I need to have someone to impress with them.

My best guess is that it’s because animation is pricey to do, and shit happens. I didn’t back it, but I loved the pilot and was really looking forward to watching how the story would play out. The ending felt lackluster, but you gotta do what you gotta do when you don’t have a whole network funding your project.

maybe. don't go into it trying to find minecraft, go into it ready to play a new game. ac switch is minecrafty but goes against pretty much every other game in the series in that regard. the original ac is available on an emulator. slow-paced game to dip in and out of, not a game you can sink hours into like mc. acww is for ds and is handy and portable and a personal favourite, an upgrade from acgc but again a simple game. acnl is cool it's on 3ds and is probably the best one for your average gamer. switch i haven't really looked into because i'm so bah humbug about it being different (and i personally think the ac series is being milked and should have been left at acnl) but it's not a sandbox

if you change up the painting from the reference photo enough to where it's not over 60-80% recognizable, you can sell it. you only really have to worry about breaking laws when painting from other's photos if 1. their likeness is exact and they didn't give permission for you to use their likeness or 2. you're selling their likeness through your painting and profitting. Otherwise, especially for personal work, you're fine.

I've always been indifferent to sex; it's just something that happens. I look forward to it but when it happens it's like eating bland macaroni and I space out in my own thoughts. This time it was different and I think I might have dissociated and then I started crying for absolutely no reason.

The term "bullying" is stupid and funny to me but it is the only word that works for this context.

Does anyone find themselves being bullied as an adult? Like you'll be talking with someone and they'll constantly crack jokes about your behavior, features, accomplishments, and go "I'm joking". Except it's relentless and they aren't doing it to other people. How the fuck do you even handle a situation like that without playing victim or reverting back to middle school?

i feel like i get this because i tend to be very quiet/reserved in group settings with coworkers. i don't even know if people necessarily know that they're being insulting (or "bullying"), but it's really annoying lmao. it really makes me think less of them, especially because i'm generally very laid back and try to get along with everyone. i know this is what people say about high school bullies, but in my experience they're doing it because they're jealous or uncomfortable. you just have to smile and act like it doesn't bother you, or pretend that you don't get it. they won't explain and then they'll drop it. the goal is to seem like the bigger person

yes, i use a vpn, although i need to renew mine so it's off at the moment. i use it for private internet browsing.

vpns will do absolutely nothing for google tracking you if you leave your google account logged in, or accidentally log into it while browsing. otherwise, vpns mask your internet browsing, making it impossible for your ISP, law enforcement or government see where you are going on the internet or what you are downloading. there are caveats - if your vpn provider keeps logs, they are still required to hand them over if asked by law enforcement. i would always recommend getting a vpn that doesn't keep logs (discards the record of sites/downloads from their users).

finally, the things you do on the internet still leave a trace - whether through posts you have made, or your vpn dropping in the middle of a download, or even keyloggers analysing the way you type. you should never assume FULL anonymity.
