Anon, everything about this post is super cute. I'm really happy for you and how well your relationship is going. I'm pretty much in your same shoes when it comes to feeling emotionally withdrawn but being in a relationship where I said "I love you" to someone for the first time. It was cathartic when I finally managed to get it out. You'll say it when you're ready. Good luck to the both of you. ♥

I've finally started to write! I've always had OCs and stories in my mind as far as I can remember and writing was my favorite subject in school, but I never tried to do it for myself because I feared it would be too autistic or cringy. I started two days ago and I love doing it, when I'm at work I can't wait to go home and write again. For now I'm just writing down summaries of the characters and world building, but it feels so good to put my thoughts somewhere. I don't know if I'll try to write narrative works (I've always envisioned my stories in a more visual media like a comic), but writing is such a fun activity.

I've felt so miserable for so long, ugly and stupid. I even felt too stupid to ever figure out how to drive, let alone live on my own. For years I convinced myself my abuse happened because I was that weak and pathetic that I deserved it. I went out on a limb and moved out, thanks to one friend helping me. It seemed like it was all for nothing because I was basically living on people's kindness, working retail jobs that felt like they'd be my whole life, and that was when it was good and I had a job. Every day I thought I should go back to my abuser and just give in because at least there I knew how things worked. COVID made everything worse and I felt so lost. Yesterday I got a real job in my field that pays well, with benefits, and I'm so happy I can't even watch TV or read a book because I just want to fully bathe in how happy I am. I am so happy I persevered and got a degree, that even with how horrible I felt I left my abuser behind and started my life, a real life. I am so grateful to my friends who stood by me and supported me even though I was basically a shell of a human being. When I get my first paycheck, I want to buy all the gift ideas I'd bookmark and could never think of getting them. I'm so happy I could cry.

Late answer but honestly the most ironic thing is this self-harm wasn't my most severe but it just kept bleeding quite badly despite applying pressure and all that so I had no choice but to go get help. TMI but the last few years I've usually cut down to fat so definitely on the severe scale but I've avoided the emergency room until now.

Thank you, anon. I thought I was "ok" but understood I was fucked while out in public. Had to sit down somewhere semi-private to assess the situation and had to hide my bloody hands from everyone in my pockets on my way to the nearest bathroom. Honestly I might've smelt like blood at that point. It was horrible. The doctor was so so nice to me though. I'm doing okay considering, just very drained. It's a mental addiction for me at this point sadly, it's been almost 10 years on and off now. I feel so ashamed of all the things I haven't accomplished because I'm so scared and so tired. I'm going to try my best to fight these impulses and do positive things but it's really hard.

My room is neat so I can't really answer your question, but I like reading the room cleaning subreddit and they ALWAYS say it's because of depression. Like 90% of the posts call it a 'depression nest'.

No. 693191

My room never gets cluttered to that level but I am pretty messy in general. I guess the mess doesn't really bother me until it does, and then I clean it up and that turns into an instant mood-booster for a day or two because it's actually really nice being in a clean, tidy environment…then the cycle repeats.
I'm curious what other messy anons say. Because I do make and break promises to myself that I'm going to be tidier all the time. It's honestly probably laziness though…

If you spend all day sleeping or never go home except to sleep, then you only have to stand it for a few waking minutes a day. One of the things they do for some hoarders is make them sit and notice the mess.

I bought a husbando dakimakura on a whim and I'm so looking forward to receiving it!!! I told my boyfriend about regretting not having one when I was suicidal and alone. Turns out he doesn't mind me owning one at all and even wants to hug it himself kek though tbh the pillow is of a generic otome husbando that I enjoy and not my one true husbando that I relate to and who is my comfort character - I would feel uncomfortable having a pillow of him because it would be crossing a line kek. Good thing there is no such cover available because I would be tempted nonetheless
The cover is cute and rather nonsexual, I don't like overtly sexy dakis especially since I live with my bf and I have zero interest in humping it or whatever.

I'm too disgusted to clean up, basically, so I always say "I'm going to do it later". There's only one corner in my room that is consistently clean, because I spend time in that corner. And I try not to touch the other areas.
Anyway I don't have clutter on the floor or on my bed like in that pic, that's truly disgusting.

I had a breast reduction last year. It was the best decision I have ever made for so many reasons.

They fit perfectly and I felt a little emotional because I was so pleased!!!

No. 695214

What made you get the reduction?
It's something that's been on my mind since I grew breasts basically. Mine are not debilitating, but things would be easier with smaller boobs clothing wise and I'd probably not have as much back pain. My husband's a bit scared of it because it's a surgery that's not 100% needed and he's basically afraid of me dying on the operating table. inb4 "He just doesn't want you to have smaller breasts" - he's a foot/leg fetishist, he doesn't give the slightest fuck about my boobs.

I remember meeting my surgeon for the first time for my consultation and he actually told me he thinks I need one (not as bluntly though) my first consultation was Sept 4th 2018 and my surgery was June 17th 2019. It was meant to be April but I had to push it back for other reasons.

I may still play some scrote visual novels (if they have actual good plot, likable female characters and are not too disgusting in my view), but otomes are amazing! I wish there were more titles released. I guess I should buy the already translated titles so we get more.

I've had a Macbook Pro for years and am finally getting a gaming laptop for christmas in a few days.

Obviously I also haven't been able to play legit games in years except when I was dating my ex who let me use his gaming laptop to play the Sims 4 and also had a PS4. Ultimately I'm gonna keep the Mac for my computer to use when traveling (for casual computer stuff) but I'll use the gaming laptop for actual entertainment.

I even purposely left essay questions on one of my finals blank because it was already past due anyway and I didn't care, but I guess I clutched it! Having all online classes was such a bummer. I'm taking fewer classes next term, but I'm just happy to have a break right now. Woohoo!

Oo I heard of this chocolate (those square things that come with a fork) and just found out there's a location in my state. Can you please explain what makes it unique? Is it worth driving out and paying for some?

No. 700479

I’m not a very big chocolate fan but I looove Royce chocolate. It’s so smooth and creamy, my coworker said it kind of reminds her of ice cream (since its meant to be eaten chilled)! It’s very expensive here in the US (like almost $20 for a teeny tiny box) so I almost never buy it because as much as I love it (its only like $8 for a box in Japan). Go for it if you want, but I don’t want to get your hopes up and your money wasted!! I love love loooove it so much, it’s the only chocolate I would ever gorge myself on lol. I did post a copycat recipe somewhere upthread or in the last positivity thread if youd like to try making it! It’s an insanely easy recipe but the chocolate taste is dependent on the baking chocolate bars you use (texture is pretty spot on though).

Also kept an old Pikachu plush I found too because they just don't make fat pikachus like they used to (don't worry they are both getting a very thorough wash before joining me on my bed).

I need to pinch myself these days, it's like I'm dreaming. I finally am defeating my biggest demons thanks to therapy and a few others' support. Every day for years I would wake up anxious, hopeless, guilty, ashamed without needing a reason in the moment. I still have those feelings as the default, but I think they're fading. Because I stop and realize "why am I upset? The thing that used to bother me is improving," and I have partly my own hard work to thank. I can't believe it but it's real!!
Ugh sorry it's vague and maybe braggy, but I am basking in how nice it feels. I never felt normal, I had constant suffering and finally I can be normal… Ahhh I'm so happy and Christmas wasn't sensational but it felt great anyhow. the year of terror is ending, I don't need next year to be better but I have faith I can make it!!

Not to be that person, I did shrooms for the first time last night and I feel like I'm still coming down off of them. But it was a really amazing experience and really helped me to break down a lot of emotional/mental walls I'd put up over the years. I feel like I finally can just speak my mind to people and say the things I always thought about them but for some reason wouldn't just tell them. Like all this time I just expected people to just read my mind and know how much I love them, care about them, how great they are & how important they are to me.

I just had this incredible outpouring of love and apprecation for all the people in my life and felt so happy that I could finally put it out there. I messaged so many people, pouring out my heart to them and rambling about how much I love them and how I feel about them. A lot of it was insane rambling, but I think they still got a lot of what I meant.

It helped me let go of so much fear & egotism, it feels like a rebirth. I'm still so tired, but I'm feeling so positive and happy.

My cat had been laying on my feet/legs for a long time and I was kind of wanting a cigarette so I slowly sat up, which usually gets her to move instantly. But this time she just kept laying on my legs and I just sat there petting her cute lil self a bit and just laid back down - not having the heart to disturb her. When laying down we looked at each other for a bit and she had her eyes relaxed, blinking slowly a bit now and then, purring despite not being petted by me anymore. It's just as if she was sending me so much extra love in that moment. It made me cry some happy tears.

After years of emotional repression caused by low-self-esteem/depression, I finally reached a breaking point, and the mask I had constructed over the years fell apart, as I sat sobbing on my bed. I told my brother about it through a sea of tears, and he was very supportive. He gave me some very good advice on the importance of self-love and the dissection of bad thoughts. That was a little over a month ago, and although there's still work to be done, I feel so much better. Today, a friend even told me that I seem like a different, better person.

Though I've been crying at least a couple of times a week and know I will continue to tear up at weird triggers for some time, I'm still amazed at how much my thought process has changed. No more petty jealousy of my best friend, no more fear of everyone laughing behind my back. It feels so great.

When I was 19 I got blackout drunk (first and only time in my life) to the point where I have several hours missing from memory and I was incapable of walking or holding consciousness for minutes at a time. This was in a public place outside with guys (just guys) I had met from uni. I think I might've been roofied but I'm not sure, either that or the vodka was expired. Two of the guys spent the night trying to sober me up, and when that didn't work they literally carried me home because no taxi would accept me on account of how drunk I was. They remembered where I lived, took me to my doorstep and made sure my parents saw me go inside.

It occurs to me how very, very wrong things could've gone. They could've left me somewhere unconscious, or raped me, or done a number of other things. We weren't close friends or anything, yet they helped me and didn't do anything wrong. My (expensive) phone was missing but I could've just dropped it somewhere during the haze. I'm very grateful that they got me home and I'm even more grateful that they didn't take advantage of me as I can imagine some men would.

An anon suggested intermittent fasting to me the other week and I've only been doing it for a little over a week but I think it's done really good for me. The last time I "dieted" a few years ago, I was in the midst of depression, caught up with a stupid fuckboy and was doing everything for all the wrong reasons. I'm a lot kinder to myself this time around, and it's great.

My hunger in the morning isn't anything too bothersome and I usually drink tea or water to help satiate it. I used to get bad hunger nausea in the afternoons but now I don't. I've also been calorie counting and even bought a bathroom scale (two things that were awful for me last time and helped fueled my borderline ED tendencies), and I've been doing good on them! They're helpful tools that help me track my process in a concrete way. I've gotten used to small portions and my cravings have gone down. Last time I did this, I was thinking about food 24/7, thinking about when my next meal or snack was and was so hyperaware of every little pang of hunger. Now? I eat my regular meal, and if I want some chips, I'll let myself indulge just a little bit, then I can go back to doing whatever it is I was doing without thinking about food until I'm actually hungry again. I don't even feel the need to boredom eat anymore, even with a bag of snacks right in front of me on my desk. I've lost an inch off my waist, and it might be water weight, but an inch is an inch. I don't know what my highest quarantine weight was, but I'm currently a pound heavier than when quarantine started. While I'm not sure how much progress I've made, I think I've made some headway. I hope I can get down a little more.

I'm a lot more comfortable in my body this time around, and I don't mind not having the body of an athlete. I want my body to be strong enough that I can indulge in my favorite hobbies and not have to depend on men to do some heavy lifting, but still being soft and cute is nice too.

I know this isn't impressive or noteworthy, but I finished my fourth week of running three times a week. I could've probably run further/harder than I actually did but it's an achievement for me because I have never been able to keep an excersise routine going for more than a week and I struggle with anxiety from being seen/recognized while excersising a lot.

I'm so in love with being alive and in love with myself. I don't care if it's cringey or lame, I'm so fucking happy being able to watch the glow of the sunrise on the building across the street from my window. I feel so blessed to eat hot food and have a warm home to return to every night. I think there's so much joy to be found in my existence. I love my softness, I love my strength.

I feel like I can't say this that often because it comes off as bragging, like "hey! I'm not depressed anymore! I think my life is great!" but in reality I know my life is pretty mediocre (college degree yet still have low wage basic bitch office job, not that smart, painfully average looks) but I still enjoy it so much because… I just do. I worked hard to get out of retail and find a job that lets me have time with friends and family, I worked hard through my demons to sit around with my head empty so I can stare out my window and feel peace. I hope many others might be able to enjoy the same things I do, because I know how it feels to be on the other end of the spectrum where everyday feels like I'm trudging through a field where the mud is up to my neck and I'm two seconds away from offing myself because I'm so fucking tired of being awake and alive. I used to dwell on moments of peace and always think "this is temporary and I'm scared of when it'll end" but now all I think is… so fucking what!!! If this shit is temporary I'm gonna enjoy it 110% until it's over. I don't care if the future has shit in store for me, it's not the future yet so I'm gonna relish in all the love and peace in my life right now.

Life is good and I'm happy.

Yes!! I love it! It feels so cheesy to say things like "just appreciate the small things in life" but I think they're the parts that are so nice and fun! Little things about the world and people that get overlooked deserve attention and love too. I know I'm very fortunate to be surrounded by many good people and have supportive and loving parents, so I want to enjoy living my life as a love letter to my parents for giving me life!

Good luck anon! It might be a long and hard journey until you find a better job, but I hope you'll get there one day! I was job hunting for a little over half a year before I was finally able to get something. It was just a temp job, but I think that one job will open up many others. I'm at another office now, and despite some office politics, the people I work with are lovely. If I can do it, I think you can too anon! Don't give up, I'm cheering you on! You deserve to live a good, happy life!

Thank you anon! I changed the way I've approached a lot of things in my life and the peace and happiness came naturally after. It's hard to not feel jealous of people I know who are achieving truly great things, but I don't think there's any shame in having small goals like just living a lowkey life. Maybe it sounds really bad, but I don't think we're all meant for greatness. There's a lot of emphasis on being the next CEO of a multi billion dollar business or creating a cure for cancer or really big shit, but I'm okay just coming home and watching some TV with my parents. I'm tired of being told I have to do big things with my life, especially if it means crawling over others or being crawled over. I'll do my part to be socially and environmentally conscious, to do right by myself and my neighbors, to make my little corner of the world shine a little bit brighter.

Good luck anon!! I hope you'll get it!

You're awesome anon, I'm really happy you've been able to get into this mindset. As a fellow formerly depressed person (who still relapses occasionally), it's been freeing to recognize that just enjoying a cup of tea, seeing a cute cat on a walk, reading a good book and all that are "enough." The little things are what make up the vast majority of our lives and it's a shame not to appreciate them. I don't have to be deliriously happy all the time, just content. No use beating yourself up over the fact you're not retiring at 25, jet-setting around the world and making millions. Even those types can be unhappy when they aren't at peace with themselves and lack the ability to be in the moment. Life really is what you make it and I don't want to look back seeing I wasted all my time lamenting the things I didn't have rather than enjoying the things I did.

Yes, exactly!! I hope despite your relapses that you’re living your best life out there! I used to think I needed to be over the top happy to be truly “happy”. But I think this is what true happiness is (or at least, very close to it)- the peace, the quiet, the subtle joy that come in all sorts of shapes and sounds and moments. Shitty moments don’t feel all that bad either, of course things won’t ever be 100% smooth sailing, and it just makes returning back to peace all the more better.

Also reminded by the other anon who I'm happy for, I'm singing a little sometimes. Sadly not skilled or confident to sing for real, but I sing in a not-caring-if-it's-bad-or-weird quiet voice, making up songs and stuff. My hope is to sing in the shower and when I'm alone.

>New job

I had so much COVID anxiety over my last job (working at a preschool) and they fired me because of that. I work at a middle school now. Not only is it a lot safer here because they actually take safety seriously, it's way easier and looks better on my resume. It's also nicer to be able to see multiple adults every day besides my critical boss and one annoying coworker that I didn't get along with at all. I'm so lucky to have my job.
>Annoying/dangerous roommate moved out
I can't believe one person moving out would make such a huge difference. My old roommate was not only annoying, but also dangerous because he insisted on going to the bar about every single day. That made me want to avoid common spaces and made hanging out with the rest of the roommates awkward because they loved him. I'm getting along way better with my new roommates. They also seem to think I'm cool which is awesome.
>Social differences
I know it's weird, but I honestly love being in middle school every day and getting to know the teachers and other staff. I'm having way more casual conversations, and it's soooo good for my mental health. I also have more free time to volunteer, so I got to meet someone cool at a nice organization in town. It seems like we're going to be working on a long-term project for the organization for the next couple of months. (I know it sounds weird, but I have to volunteer as part of my job contract)

Because of my school job I also got vaccinated yesterday. I just feel so good about everything which is amazing when I was borderline suicidal last March. Because I didn't get a ton of social interaction last year, I ended up spending wayyy too much time inside of my head. It's kind of embarrassing in retrospect.

Today I realized that I have really good best friends who love me and stand by me through thick and thin, no matter how awful I am. I make good friends and I really do love them so much. But I’ve always been afraid deep down inside that I was going to end up not being good enough for them and somehow getting my heart broken, because I came from an unstable home and friendships couldn’t last long. But it was me who would create ideas about them so that I wouldn’t miss them when they were gone. And again it was me who pushed them away to save myself. All this time they did see a genuine friend in me and treated me with love and loyalty. They won’t turn their backs on me, either. I haven’t had best friends (plural) since high school, and now I want to reconnect with those girls too. I miss them and I understand now they probably never judged me as harshly as I viewed myself, too.. I was lucky to have them in my life, and I know now I wasn’t a disposable hindrance in theirs.

Over the years, everytime I wanted to workout regularly, I was obsessed with losing weight and didn't have an actual healthy motive behind it so I didn't have discipline either and couldn't exercise for more than 10 mins.
Nowadays I started working out just to lose some energy, feel tired, sweat and sleep better at night. Of course I still want to lose some weight that's bothering me but I'm not obsessed about it at all. Mostly I want to be stronger and healthier, I want to be more capable with my body. And I'm loving it, I can keep up. I'm happy anons, I've struggled a lot with enjoying exercise

No. 720952

That's awesome anon, even if you don't lose a lb you'll benefit a tonne from exercise.

My motivation to exercise regularly came from reading up on health outcomes for elderly people. It's by far the most important factor in maintaining mobility and health as you age, and even just going for a daily walk is a huge help. I want to have an awesome, active retirement so that motivation REALLY clicked with me and now I go for a walk every day I don't do my normal exercise. I'm also trying to lose weight but I know that motivation which comes from something deeper than my appearance will keep me exercising regularly even if I don't lose weight. It helps to know it doesn't have to be extremely intense work outs, as long as you keep moving that's the important thing.

It's usually restaurants listing leftovers they have that you can buy for a cheaper price, and some restaurants around my work had pick up options midday so I decided to order from a nearby poke place. I ordered a $6 bowl that's regularly worth $12. When I got there, the lady said "there's a lot of poke left, so do you want a larger bowl?" and of course I said yes! She let me pick two choices of fish instead of just one, and gave me sooooo much food! The city I work in is really expensive, so to get so much food for $6 was a steal!

I've been wanting this chair since I saw it on instagram the other week, but it's always out of stock. The other day I saw that it was in stock, but only for pick up at a location that was sort of far from me so I couldn't go pick it up. I had in-stock alerts set up, and it worked once but when it notified me, it was for pick up at that same location sort of far from me… Since then I've been periodically checking the product page and when I happened to refresh just a few minutes ago, it was in stock (didn't even get an in-stock notification email)!! I zipped to buy it and got one of the two left in stock for delivery, and I'm super duper happy and excited for this chair to come in!!!! What amazing luck!! I've been weirdly obsessed with hammock and relaxing in one my whole life, but since I live in an apartment, they aren't really feasible. A lot of other hammock chairs tend to be very expensive too, this one is only $40. Maybe that cost reflects it's craftsmanship, but it has high reviews and at least if it sucks I'll return it and know I don't like it than always wishing for it.

It was my mom's birthday today, I cleaned up a little before she came home from her office space, woke up the cats to be there by the door to greet her and I had ordered her fave desserts and her fave weird beers! I had no chances to get her what I wanted to get but she loved the art prints I got her and I'm gonna pay to get them professionally framed locally. Had a nice, cozy night, watched a movie and I wrote her a little stupid poem which she enjoyed, it's nice her bday falls so close to valentines though, you can find so nice cards and flower bouquets!

I went out for a little Galentines date with one of my best friends last night! We went to a place that had an outdoor set up, with heated private cabins. We ordered a lot of food (one of the servers commented on it when we left lol) but I had a good time and have zero regrets ordering a bunch of food. Everything was so good, and the only thing we didn't finish was desert because it was way too rich for us. I've never done anything for Valentines because I usually don't have a partner, but I'm happy I got to celebrate with a good friend this year!

Rather than being sad and eating my feelings away that I don't have a partner, I'm just happy to have a cute little date with good food and good company. I'm happy for all the love I have in my life, from friends and family. I always think of this post I saw from an anon two years ago, and I never thought I'd ever be in a position where I am just filled with such love and happiness that I have so much to share with them. I'm in no rush to share it with just anyway, and wait patiently for the day I'll meet a wonderful person that I can share it with, and can spend future Valentines days with. I'll always be working on my life and myself, and I hope that my future partner will be a good person to the person I am trying my best to become. Hope all of you farmers have a happy Valentines day!

Anon, this makes me so happy to read. Being at peace and enjoying the simple wonders of the world is an absolutely beautiful thing and it makes me so happy that you can experience it! It used to feel impossible when you're in the depths of depression, to just be happy with existing and the things around you. It feels so silly and dumb to find peace in things like warming yourself up in the sun, stepping out and being greeted by beautiful weather and a clear blue sky (or cloudy weather if that's your cup of tea), but when you get there, it's amazing. Truly no thoughts, head empty. No intrusive thoughts to ruin my day, just staring out at the world and feeling overwhelming peace and joy at our existence in this world.

I hope you'll be able to experience many, many more of these moments anon! I used to not appreciate them and think "this will be short lived" but that's just a part of life! Other moments of peace will come, and the unsavory parts of life will make those moments of peace all the more welcomed.

i never really thought of the health benefits but there was a fact i know, that im not sure if its credible or not, but using earbuds and headphones for long duration could potentially damage hearing.

my main reason is that i tend to be more aloof when using headphones, like less outgoing and that i am also less productive with my tasks since i get really invested to listening music or videos. the only time im not wearing one is when im asleep so i spent using it for really long hours which is gross now that i realized.

Most of the time I'm absent-minded and distracted because of ADHD, but my boyfriend treats me so well. He's always telling me how cool, amazing, and intelligent I am despite me feeling like I'm fumbling over myself and always showing him my flaws. It's like he only sees the best in me, and it's helping me see more of that too. He's the most wonderful man I've ever met, I can tell he genuinely respects me and he's always going out of his way to make me happy. Just being around him makes me feel really warm. He's so sweet and chipper.

My previous exes were nice guys on the outside, but only when it was convenient and easy for them. They also never gave me genuine compliments, but would call me generic stuff like "cute" or "beautiful." I know this part sounds like humblebragging, but it feels like a world of difference when my boyfriend compliments something I did well or what he likes about me besides my appearance. And when he does compliment my appearance it's never generic shit like "u look gud bb", he notices the effort I put into my outfits and hair.

I got pet guinea pigs about three months ago and whenever I look at them I just get a really warm fuzzy feeling that i’m taking care of two cute creatures from the moment they were basically born (well I got them when they were three weeks old) and I get to watch them grow and develop their little ‘personalities’ as well as the fact i’m their primary caretaker so they get to know me more. I’ll go to work and then I think about coming home, playing with them and giving them their fresh veggies and it helps me get through the day. it’s been a long time since i’ve had a pet and i’m enjoying it a lot. my boyfriend loves to help out and play with them too so it makes me feel even happier that I have a partner who likes small animals and cares for them. life is going really nicely for me so far and i’ve been a lot happier lately which is something I never expected to happen and I feel like I owe it to my piggies for giving me a reason to keep going when other things in life don’t feel as certain.

But this morning she woke up early (she's usually still sleeping when I leave for work and wakes up around the afternoon or when my parents wake up) and was very cute cuddling with me and even ate her breakfast as soon as I put it down. Maybe it was just because she was hungry, but I like to think that she was checking up on me. She brings me so much joy even if she's a tiny little asshole.

In general I consider myself very unremarkable looking, not hideous, just not someone you'd pass on the street and pay a second thought to. Then during a Zoom art workshop we were paired off and told to draw each other as an exercise. Later when we showed everyone our works, my partner showed her drawing of me and said she paid special attention to my lips because she found them so beautiful. I was genuinely surprised because I didn't like my lips all that much lol! Made me happy for the rest of the day.

I took my gf's virginity last night and it was so, so, so nice. It was my first time with a woman so I was really nervous beforehand, I wanted to make sure she'd have nothing but good memories about it. I ate her out for what seemed like an hour and I almost made her cum but when she was getting close she started squirming and twitching and moaning I lost my rhythm completely because jesus fucking christ how can you stay calm in that situation? But we had a good laugh about it and next time I'll hopefully do better. She's so cute. I'm so happy. After so many shitty relationships with scrotes I finally have the gf of my dreams.

Today I undressed to take a shower and caught a glance of myself. You know when you look in a certain direction where you don't expect to see a mirror, and you think your reflection is someone else for a split second? That happened to me, and my first thought literally was "Damn, her titties look good". Mind you, ever since mine grew in at age 11, they were always saggy, and I was extremely self-conscious about them and hated them ever since. They were probably a big reason I had my trans phase, too. But today I thought they looked sexy as hell, and in retrospect really berated myself for thinking otherwise. They seemed not even 'sexy' at that moment, but clasically beautiful, like of a Greek marble statue of a woman.
Love your boobs, anons!!

Feeling much better after a breakup! Had one last interaction with him and really found out it would be a constant stress for me to be with him. I don't have to regret a thing. I feel much lighter, while still a bit lonely, I feel like I'm turning a new page in my life. And while it might be childish, I love how it's spring right now.

I asked my cousin to buy strawberries when he was coming home because I only saw them as I was leaving and didn’t want to go back so I got to eat yummy strawberries for dessert.

I'm so hyped, my bf got picrel a few weeks ago and even though I'm not strong enough to do a real chin up, just hanging from it and doing stuff like pointing my toes and bringing my knees to my chest has already resulted in my legs and butt looking more trim, my abs firming up, and for the first time in my life I have some muscle definition in my back. My horrible posture has also improved dramatically, like I don't feel the scoliosis constantly pressing my spine into a curve anymore. This thing just speaks to my ADHD monke brain in a way that regular exercise doesn't. I'm sort of addicted to it.

I got my first vaccine shot today! It was at a convention center in my city that I usually only go to for anime cons, so it felt very weird going in there and not seeing big anime tiddy banners being hung from the ceiling haha. The weather is chilly and cloudy, which is how it normally feels when I come here for a con… Getting through was super quick, which was great because I know my mom had to wait 1+ hours to get her shot here. While I was sitting in the observation area, they had volunteers playing music and they played a cover of Viva La Vida which is, for whatever reason, one of my favorite songs and reminds me of Code Geass because of this one amv I watched over 10 years ago. Just weird vibes but I’m happy I got my first vaccine dose! A lot of people around me are rightfully wary, but I figure that if the vaccine doesn’t take me out, then covid will. I took a detour before going home to pick up some specialty flavored pancakes from a restaurant thats doing different flavors every few days for the month of March and I’m soooo excited to get home and eat them!

Today I responded to a dilemma I’ve been avoiding facing in a way that showed my growth and maturity, and this week when fate (if you believe in such a concept) was tempting me to be cruel to myself or compromise my morals to please both people I want to, I held my ground and politely navigated my way through the interaction without myself or anyone getting their feelings hurt or misunderstood. The metaphorical icing on my really great week-cake is that my gf and I talked about gender for the first time in a long time and found we have more in common than we thought in the sense that we both were afraid to bring it up to the other and relieved to find we had so much common ground, plus I love hearing her talk her voice is so soothing and she’s so intelligent so it was a really good interaction. Earlier today before talking to her I was lurking terf-tok on another really smart woman’s profile and just watched tra’s have meltdowns for tdov, she’s so clever it makes me feel dumb in the best way, like in a way where I learn something. I’m excited to feel like I can talk to people with more ease than previously, and learn from more women. Pls no bully or ban for talking about dumb gendercrit stuff I just feel like the last few days things have been getting better for the first time in years and I’ve been gentler and more open with myself, thank you to anyone who reads this.

Hello anons, a few things had happened that had made me reflect on a lot of aspects of my life. I finally decided to just be more open about my feelings and try to change for the better.

I'm finally going to be honest to my crush on Discord. No more stalking, no more secrets, nothing. Just an actual conversation face to face for once. I don't know if he is going to accept my feelings, but I don't mind anymore. I just want both of us to be happy, and if that means that we should find a different person for each other, I understand.

Anyways, wish me luck anons. Whatever the result is now, at least he and I made each other happy for a while.

i love that you love this quiet environment. enjoy it, anon! you deserve it.

my job is regularly like this on weekends. i work overnights and my busy work only takes at most 2 hours to complete, so i have 6 hours of free time throughout my shift. on weekdays i get 4-5 hours of free time, it's still a great environment. i sometimes sneak in an hour or two of sleep lol. my supervisor is laxed about it since he's been in my position for a few years. majority of the time i just play video games or read books. at one point i was doing comissions for my friends, so i was basically getting paid on top of getting paid, but i got tired of hauling in my laptop and drawing tablet. my laptop has turned to shit, so that's out of the question for now.

Writing smut makes me so happy lol. I usually have a story running in my head all the time but never wrote any of it out. I still get kudos on an original work I posted a while back, but I cringe when I read it lol. I don't want to take it down though, because I know how it feels to have a fic you like taken down without word. I posted it anonymously so it doesn't really matter whether I keep up a piece of cringey writing or not heh. I never expected people to like it but people have commented such nice things about wanting more of my characters and enjoying their dynamic, and even asking if I would post off anon so they could follow me… I can't believe it! I think I have a long ways to go with my writing, but writing dumb love stories was always a favorite pastime of mine when I was growing up and it feels so validating to know others enjoy the dumb shit brewing in my head.

Yesterday was grooming day for my dog. I bought new hair shears just for her because we've never taken her to the groomers before and I think it might stress her out too much to start now (she's very old). I only wanted to trim her butt for sanitary reasons and I think I did a decent job! Her butt looks so funny and cute now when she walks, and I trimmed some fur on her front legs that tends to drag on the ground and get dirty very easily too. She didn't fuss too much when I trimmed her nails and also got a bath. Now she is a clean puppy, ready for all the snuggles.

I felt very lonely yesterday because it was my day off and no one else was home, so I decided to check out the arcade. I was coming home from the dollar store, so I said fuck it, let's do another stop. That was a really fun hour. It didn't cost much either, I bought a points card for $20, and I only went through barely half of the credits, so $10 an hour is not bad at all. I'm gonna go back with my boyfriend soon.

Hell yeah! I used to frequent arcades/game centers a lot when I studied abroad in Japan and they were so much fun. I did sink a lot of money and arguably developed a borderline addiction to them because of depression, but I have a lot of fond memories of having fun by myself. My friends would sometimes see me glance at an arcade and suggest we go in because they knew I liked them too, and playing games with friends and then doing photobooths was always the best! I miss arcades so much, there's almost none in my city.

When I first hit puberty I had terribly heavy periods with the worst cramps. On the worst days I'd be overwhelmed with nausea and overheating. Then as I grew older the worst of the cramps and nausea subsided, until my dumb scrote obgyn gave me the patch for birth control (fuck him but that's a different post). My cramps came back and it sucked.

As my 20s are slowly coming to a close, I realized I am 100% comfortable living as the slight eccentric I've always been. I didn't allow myself to enjoy or do a lot of things because I was worried other people would think it was too weird or cringey. But now I don't care anymore, I am going to start that doll collection, buy all the plushies, crystals & cringe anime merchandise, start wearing lolita, grow my hair as long as it will go.

I'm actually looking forward to the freedom of being in my 30s and being considered "past my prime" by scrotes & society at large. Feels like a sort of freedom to be considered irrelevant, I'll be free to do whatever I want.

Based anon. I didn't feel truly free until I hit my 30's and realized I can be as cringe as I want because the only people who will care are insecure zoomers who are terrified of aging. Gonna wear all the altfash I want and be a weeb forever.

I haven't been out in such a long time because of Covid and I got very depressed because of this just was in an awful state for a while. Yesterday I found some cash I saved up from past younger birthdays and decided to go out on my own and get some cute clothes, plushies, and boba tea. I had a great time just being out again and buying some cute things, it really cleared up my head. I think I might start taking daily walks because getting out of my room for once is really helping me. I feel a lot happier already, I wanna reset and I'm looking forward to doing so. I feel great.

YES, DO IT. EMBRACE BEING A WEIRDO. Only naïve, boring, anxious people care about that kind of approval– and there's still no guarantee everyone will like them regardless. Indulge in your hobbies, wear what makes you smile when you look in the mirror, learn and grow without restraint. I promise you'll be happier.

I hate when women propagate the "past my prime" bullshit against themselves, particularly on here. What makes you valuable is not an arbitrary rating from some strange chucklefuck who lives on the internet. Imagine how much more fulfilling it will be to cultivate relationships with people who share your interests and don't see your "flaws" as ammunition to reject you.

I don't want to stray from the thread topic too much but how would one go about this? I'm an insecure fuck and I'd love to stop giving a shit about what people think but I have no clue how. I consciously know that it's stupid to be so insecure but it's hard to just ignore it. I guess I'm just lonely and afraid I'll isolate myself from others even more if I stop trying to be palatable.

No. 789807

I relate to this because I'm also a weirdo… the problem is, I don't show it to anyone. I feel uncomfortable talking about my real passions even though they're harmless. IDK how to change that, I'm in therapy, but I have so many issues it's crazy.

Joke's on you fam, you're still gonna get hit on by scrotes since we don't miraculously transform into shriveled hagbeasts on our 30th birthdays like society suggests. Hope you enjoy the confidence and mental stability though.

No. 789934

It's one of those simple solutions that's harder to put into practice. You have to ask yourself if wearing a mask and contorting yourself into someone you aren't is worth it to maintain relationships with people who would abandon the real you. If someone would stop interacting with you because you have some arcane interest then were they ever really your friend in the first place? No, so it's no great loss. But in being your real self you'll attract other people who like the same things or may have been too shy to express they have the same interests as well, and your friendships will be stronger for it.

Ooh it's so cute, look at it's stripy little body!

Maybe I'm just a Disney princess wannabe but have you ever tried talking to them?

What did you sell and how?

I managed to get a few hundreds euros by selling a lot of books, video games and some clothes, 1600$ seems like a huge amount of money.

I'm like at the verge of tears.
The past few days/ weeks everything in general has been stressfull af. I gotta hand in my criminal law thesis tomorrow and I still have to write on that. I broke my rib laughing 4 weeks ago. I had so much unnecessary trouble with my insurance company because they thought I wasn't in my parents plan anymore and wanted to charge me 12000€ (luckily they did realise that was a mistake)
My boyfriend is gone on a motorcycle trip today and I thought you know what. Fuck cooking. I'm broke af but I really want some pizza, I probably have enough change laying on my desk for the Dominos Lunch Menu. I did. So I order myself this bad boi right here. Cash ready for when the order arrives and then boom:

I have no clue who they are. Why they've decided I deserve some free Pizza. But this makes me so goddamn happy. It's like life was like: Look there is still a lot you gotta do; but I've been a little hard on you have some free Pizza.

The total order was like 11€ so it's not like it was a lot of money. But fuck this is just so damn nice.
I hope whoever paid for it has the greatest day ahead of them.

I didn't know a free pizza would make me almost cry but I'm also super stressed and on my period, with a broken rib so yeah.

Here is the beauty. So yeah I will enjoy some free pizza and I hope life gives you some free pizza too! (That's actually a great metaphor)

I also didn't know it was possible but I already had what was assumed to be a tiny fracture in my right rib (from coughing too hard. I can't make this shit up) but nothing too serious. Just don't overdo it with physical activity blabla. Friend came over like 3 weeks later. We're sitting around he tells me a shitty pun. I fucking lose it. I'm laughing so hard. I don't even remember the pun, all I know is there was a fuckton of pain suddenly and I could barely move. Went to the hospital and they explained I broke my rib because I was putting too much pressure on it while laughing. This is so sad it's funny and I could break another rib laughing about it. Pain level is pretty ok at this point I just have to be a bit more careful atm when it comes to movement

I started doing morning stretches, which turned into morning yoga, when I returned back to work after lockdown. It was to help my incredibly stiff body (insane amounts of time playing ACNL during lockdown lol) but also help me wake up since getting out of bed early again was rough. Now it's just a part of my routine, and I hate it when I can't do even just a short 10 minute routine. I don't do workouts or anything, but I'll browse around for a 15-20 minute video that I think looks easy enough and I think it's such a great way to start my morning. I love to look out my window and see the glow of the morning sun on the buildings across the street. Something about it fills me with such joy and peace and I'm grateful to be able to see it every morning and I feel like it feeds my soul, as cheesy as it sounds.

I've been getting out of bed just a little bit earlier, minute by minute, as the days and weeks go by, just so I can spend more time doing yoga. My goal is to actually be up and out of bed at 6am (I usually wake up and go back to sleep lol) and do a reeeeeeeally long practice, maybe even some work outs. For now, it's just 15 to 20 minutes of some nice slow stretches.

I'm becoming the person I want to become. I hope one day I'll be able to regularly set aside time for journaling, reading, and night time stretches too! But I'll take it one step at a time.

Poms are wonderful and a great choice, but remember that they require a stern upbringing and a good amount of discipline. They might become very aggressive if not socialized and properly trained since puppyhood and easily take a mile when you offer an inch as they tend to develop big egos. Other than that they're lively, friendly and very beautiful dogs. Good luck with getting your puppy!

Tomorrow I'm interviewing at a company I used to work at. I had to leave because I worked a contract position but I made friends with people there and one contacted me to let me know a position opened up. I don't know if I'll get it and don't want to feel too full of myself, but I like to think that things are aligning in just the right way and that's why this opportunity presented itself. Even if I don't get it, I'm happy that my friend there immediately thought of me and was recommending me to the person who is the interim HR director now. She believes so much in me, so many of mentors in my life believe in me, so I will believe in myself too. I will prepare for the worst, and hope for the best.

I love my gecko sm. She really works with my schedule bc I usually have work/school & am out of the house all day, but when I come home in the evening she's awake and active. I've had small nocturnal pets before like hamsters but they were a bit more maintenance and sadly have a much shorter lifespan. I think she doesn't mind not being let out as often as mammals do because she spends most of the day under her heat hide anyway. She also just chills with me when I'm studying or on the computer, I don't have to worry about her wondering off too far. She's the perfect pet for me right now!

I will be utterly destroyed if I'm jumping the gun here, but I think the interview went really well. I knew the HR girl already and she only asked really basic HR questions (what salary are you looking for, when can you start, etc), but the other interviewer is someone I don't know and he came in after I left the company so I was sooo nervous. He said he asked around the office about me and everyone said good things about me, and he seems like a nice guy. He was impressed with my schooling even though I'm actually dumb as bricks lol.

My friend who recommended me for the position went to go talk to him today and she texted me "I believe it's all up to you now!" in terms of working out salary… so I guess… maybe I did get it?!?! He had a good impression of me and said I was energetic lol. I do have another interview tomorrow with a different place that I know has much higher salary, but I think I'm willing to forgo the better salary for a work environment that I know and am comfortable with. Maybe I sound like a pompous asshole for saying money isn't the biggest motivator for me, but it kind of isn't. I left a well paying, high stress job for low wage basic bitch office work and was so much happier with the chill environment.

But things aren't set in stone yet, so I'm still going to try my best on my interview tomorrow too so I'll have a backup at least!

While I was grumbling through a tedious task at my job, I paused, took a step back, and realized that I’m living my dream. I have the career I’ve always wanted, that I said I wanted in high school, then college, then later when I took a detour with my first job that wasn’t in that field but to just get my feet wet.

A little light at the end of the tunnel - while the first place he was committed to was bad, people found out where he was sent and major figures like H. G. Wells and the prime minister actively pushed to have him moved to a better facility. The next hospital was pretty nice and had a garden with cats, so he was able to spend the last years of his life surrounded by the critters he loved and in relative peace.

I love my best friends from high school so much. We basically have nothing in common besides the fact that we went to same high school, but we are best friends and have been for a decade now. I kinda didn't care for them in high school because I would hang out with cosplay friends I made outside of school, but lo and behold I'm not hanging out with those weirdos anymore. Then in college I became friends with the cosplayers on my campus but, again, I'm not friends with them anymore. Maybe picking cosplayers/people consumed by the internet and internet culture for friends was my first problem, but through all the years my high school friends have stuck by me. Who knew that the normies would've made better friends?? I don't mean it in a bad way, but they're normal, well adjusted people who didn't spend a huge portion of their time consumed with tumblr and fandom culture (and by extension, the mental illness hype train). We only talk like once or twice a year in the group chat, but we pick up conversations like nothing and the time spent apart just means we get to talk and talk and talk about all the things that have happened since we last talked/hung out. We've seen each other glow up, and I feel like these people genuinely root for my success and happiness and I do the same for them. I think rather than being bonded together by similar interests, our friendship is so strong because our personalities just mesh so well.

My high school was extremely small, so everyone knew everyone. I feel like any time I get to talk to any one of my other high school friends that I talk to maybe once every few years, it's the same feeling of being happy for each other and rooting each other on. It's so great, and I feel so fortunate to know these people. It sucks that it's taken me so long and so many lost friends to realize what an absolute treasure these people are, but better late than never to realize it right? I hope everyone finds friends like these. I hope when I grow old, we will still be able to catch up every once in a while.

I posted in one of the vent threads a while back being nervous about adopting a cat and return with an update- while we’ve had our ups and major downs (first time pet parent, cats have been a learning curve) we’re coming up on week three and he’s truly already brought so much joy into my life. i love him to pieces even if he gets zoomies while i’m in meetings at work and can be a bit stubborn at times, but I’m learning that’s just how cats are despite my various worries. i’m so happy I took the leap.

Yay! I'm so glad you and your new friend are bonding. Kittens certainly can be stinkers, and sometimes it might not even go away as they age because cats can be just downright spiteful, but that's also part of what makes them so lovable. I wish you and your kitty a bright future together!

thank you omg!! And yes, I’ve been watching a ton of Jackson Galaxy in the last few weeks, he’s been a lifesaver especially for nighttime and litter related stuff among other things. my little guy (I say as he’s 3) had a rough first few nights and while I’m still sleeping with some earplugs because he has a LOUD meow let alone at 4am, we’re doing so much better than before now that we have somewhat of a schedule going on. I’m just so thankful he was friendly right out of the gates with me especially as a newbie, I know it’s inevitable that there’s gonna be some bumps ahead (mostly with myself rather than him, ironically) but hopefully things will keep going up from here- he’s definitely a cat thats always either 0 or 100 but he really does have the sweetest personality at the end of the day.

i was very closely bonded with my childhood cat who i had for many years when he passed of old age a few years ago. ive spent most of the time since then dealing with the loss and intense grief, but recently finally felt ready to adopt a new cat.

after lots of searching for the right fit at tons of shelters, a few months ago i adopted a senior cat with special needs. he has behavioral and physical health issues and in the beginning was very difficult and aggressive because he suffered a lot before he got to me, but the past few months of caring for him and bonding with him have brought me so much joy.

i struggle a lot with severe depression but spoiling him and giving him the best life i can brings me the most happiness i've felt in a long time. when he curls up next to me at night sometimes it makes me cry. i feed him the most high quality food, make sure he gets the best nutrition and hydration, i medicate him so he is comfortable, and he has so many toys i can barely walk around my house without tripping over them. within a few weeks his fur was filling out and he gained a nice amount of chubby housecat weight and he looks so healthy. i hope he knows how much i love him. it makes me so happy to watch him stare out the window and chirp at the birds. i dont mind when he's loud or difficult because it honestly reminds me of my childhood cat who was annoying and high maintenance. he has the cutest meows and he is so funny and unique and has so much personality. he makes me feel like i have a reason to stick around. im really thankful for that.

My work friend and I, who have a sibling-esque relationship, bickered a bit at the start of my shift, and my day was already bad enough and that made it worse. He ended up coming back right before close to grab drinks, but he helped pull in furniture from outside first. We got to this horrible, severely damaged table that we all hate but still used for some reason, and we just decided to toss it out without checking in with our boss. We walked it to the dumpster together and both apologized—a lot of our (and others) anger is misdirected at each other when it’s meant for our retarded boss/shop owner lol.

According to the scales I'm heavier than I've ever been (within a healthy range but on the high end) and frankly I think I look great. I've been doing some strength training + dance at home and just eating intuitively. It's been a relief not stressing over carb counting or whether I fit into all my old clothes. Even though I can grab fat on my gut I still look fit and have a decent level of muscle definition. Makes me happy that I'm strong enough for it to show even when I'm not at a low BMI. I've never been an anachan or wanted to be super tiny, but I guess I still subconsciously felt pressure to maintain a certain size and look. Letting that anxiety go and just feeling happy with where I've landed is nice.

My city went into lockdown two days before I was supposed to see an artist in my city. The concert was eventually cancelled and they just sent out emails with unique codes for a presale before the general presale. I was a little impatient and figured I had better chances of getting a floor seat for friday's show instead of saturday, and I got let into the room to buy tickets for friday sooner. Well, I ended up getting floor seats for friday and then was let into saturday's room to buy tickets and there were still floor seats available! But the code could only be used once so I couldn't get floor seats for saturday ugh…

But who am I kidding?!?! I got floor seats for a major artist at one of the largest venues in my city!!!

Sometimes people want to know the genetic history of the dogs they are getting, which reputable breeders can provide. Sometimes shelters make the adopting process very difficult (yes, this is a thing that happens) and it’s easier to just get a dog from a breeder than being turned down constantly by a every shelter in a 100 mile radius because they didn’t like what was written in your lease agreement or whatever other reason. Puppies can also be difficult to get from shelters because they are very much in demand compared to senior dogs/dogs with health issues.

inb4 i adopted by dog from a shelter just fine!
My parents and I visited several shelters, including some we drove hours out for, only to be denied or skipped over. My friend had to submit a ridiculous amount of documentation, including his lease agreement and many other private documents, only to be turned down by multiple shelters for over a year.

Please realize there are many reasons to choose a breeder over a shelter, not just the two I listed. Even if someone wants to get a dog as an accessory, if the dog is well fed, loved, and taken care of properly, who cares? Anon is ready to open up her heart and home to a new pup, and I’m sure she will provide a good home for that dog.

The highlight of buying dogs: by doing that, you make sure that the puppy will not be mistreated and/or eventually dumped by people who only got it because their 5 year old saw 'a funny doggie just like that' in a cartoon, and ended up being shocked that the puppy doesn't stay young forever, requires training, can be annoying, has breed-related (or not) health issues etc. I realize that this is not as saintly and admirable as adopting a dog elder, but it still does some good.

After a dental examination the other day, I was recommended braces to help 'pull' out a partially erupted far back tooth on my bottom jaw. I'd had one my far back teeth removed as a child, so there is room for it to fully erupt, it just needs help to be anchored out. (The missing tooth is also why they didn't suggest removing the partially erupted one) I'm actually really happy about this, I'd wanted braces since I was a teen but my family was too poorfag to get me any. Never looked into them as an adult because I didn't want to pay thousands purely for vanity, my teeth only being mildly crooked. But after being told I should get them for my dental health, I keep looking in the mirror and thinking how much it'd improve my overall appearance to have straight teeth. I'm so excited!

Puppy anon here, I didn't realise my post would gain such a response but I do have answers for you all.

We wanted to adopt a rescue dog, there were a few factors that got in the way though. The shelter itself is nearly adopted out (which is amazing!) and the dogs that are still looking for homes sadly all don't get along with young children - I have a young daughter and I can't risk her safety.

The puppy is coming from a chap who has kept dogs out of love for many years, he has insisted that we call him for any help or advice once we get her home and to this day he keeps in contact with people who have had puppies from other dogs in his home. I detest puppy mills, they are abhorrent.

In the future when my daughter is older, I would love to home a rescue dog or several. I don't plan on having any more children and I have a lot of years left so plenty of time to welcome all sorts of pups into my life.

Thank you to everyone for the love! And honestly, I appreciate the concerns too.

I can't imagine spending more than $100 on just 2 outfits, but you do you. You might be basking in the glory of having extra money right now, but remember that by making poor consumption choices you could quickly go back to having the same amount of money you did before. Spend the money wisely. For $800, you could probably get 5-6 whole outfits from a general clothing department store and 15 whole outfits from a thrift store or resale store.

No. 821313

Go for it; there's nothing wrong about spending more on clothes occasionally if you have the financial means. One purchase is not "poor consumption choices" that will drive you to poverty; and why have 15 whole outfits from a thrift store you will never wear as opposed to one you'll love?

No. 821322

>why have 15 whole outfits from a thrift store you will never wear as opposed to one you'll love?
What makes you think someone will like something they bought more just because it was more expensive? How big brands get away with charging customers more than necessary is specifically by convincing them that their items are somehow better, or that they'll like them more, just because they cost more. Obviously, that isn't how it really works, and items can be expensive while also being of low quality or of the same quality as inexpensive items. If someone chooses to buy 15 outfits at a thrift store, only to get home and decide they don't like what they bought, that's their personal issue. If they didn't like the clothing, surely they wouldn't have bought it? You can say that one purchase won't drive you into poverty, but the fact that it's one purchase doesn't change that you're spending nearly $800 on something that might not be worth that much.

No. 821428

>why have 15 whole outfits from a thrift store you will never wear
So if someone doesn't spend 800 dollars on two outfits that must mean the only alternative is buying outfits they hate at the thriftstore? And that you can't get outfits you love at the thriftstore? I'm all for investing in high quality and sustainable clothes but this is such odd reasoning. I don't get how you jumped from expensive clothes to hating 15 outfits from the thriftstore lmao.

No. 821441

Hey don't be so upset by my response (and don't twist my words please), she said there's something she really wants to have from an expensive store and anon responds that she should rather go to thrift store and buy 15 outfits for the money she wants to spend on something she already likes a lot, just because that's cheaper; I think it's a ridiculous advice. I exaggerated saying "15 outfits she wont wear" but while I totally believe you can find great stuff at thrift stores it's pretty hard unless you're 1. lucky 2. crafty 3. willing to spend a loooot of time looking. So it's a choice between one outfit she's guaranteed to like vs hunting for perhaps more but no guarantee she'll find anything she likes half as much as what she's already picked.

I adore sunshine and hot weather, there's nothing more enlivening than feeling the deep, full-body warmth of sun soaking in your skin then getting brushed by a cool breeze or sprinkler water or brief summer shower. I love how everything is in full bloom and the air smells like five different types of flowers. I love how the light lasts late into the night and the air feels like a soft blanket and the purple-orange sunsets that paint everything in dreamy hues. I love going to the beach, coconut-scented sunscreen, the feel of my feet sinking into sand, fresh watermelon juice dripping down my chin, melty ice cream cones, and how my skin feels supremely soft after soaking in saltwater. I love watching fireworks and crackling campfires and smelling the black powder and wood smoke. I love seeing light glittering on the water, the little motes of pollen or tiny bugs drifting in the air that look like fairies, and the mysterious light of fireflies. I'm not in a location that has them right now, but I love listening to cicadas and dozing off like a lazy cat midday to the sound of their chittering drone. Everything is lush and sensual and otherworldly and I always feel nostalgic even as I'm living it. It's incredibly romantic, but like nature itself is loving you. I wish I could stop time and just exist in an eternal summer and do nothing but absorb the world. I really need to move to a tropical island. But then, something about how fleeting it is makes it all the more beautiful.

I think this has been a really good week compared to how awful I've been feeling. I stayed with my boyfriend in the mountains for the long weekend and it was so fucking beautiful to the point where he started tearing up lol. We went on trails and there were a shit ton of deer that were use to human contact so you could stand relatively close to them and they wouldn't mind. They were all female and some had sweet little babies. Since I'm staying there next semester we went to go see the school and they had ducks and pretty wildflowers anywhere. After our trip we thought it'd be really nice to consider moving somewhere in the mountains and having a little farm would be really nice. I finally got to see my doctor and restarted my antidepressants, and I decided to give therapy another shot. My menstrual cup came and I'm excited about that since I always forget to buy tampons and it wasn't as hard as I thought it'd be! And now I get to see my friend tomorrow for her graduation party and have a good time. I FEEL AMAZING NONNIES I LOVE YOU ALL SO MUCH

I am an anon from a while ago that posted about recovering from brain surgery. Figured for any chronically ill or in pain anons out there I would tell you guys that since I had my surgery 9 months ago I’ve been able to work, start EMDR therapy for my PTSD, exercise every day and I’ve lost almost 90lbs! My depression and anxiety is significantly reduced and I no longer feel like I have nothing to live for. My health is completely in check for the first time in five years, I sleep soundly, and look forward to my days. If any of you guys are out there feeling crippled by your pain or health/mental health conditions, don’t give up on finding a solution for yourself!

I've started being more conscious of what I put into my body (converted to veganism, drinking more water, exercising more) and for the first time in I don't know how long, I feel full and satisfied after eating a meal. My body doesn't seem to register when I've had enough food and I'm constantly ravenous. It's horrible to experience and I've given up finding the cause after having it present for years and finding no reason for its occurrance. Now that I know I can feel full on this diet, I finally know that I am on the right track and there's hope to escape that feeling. Nobody in my life is greatly supportive so I just wanted to share this here. Pic of Ping to brighten someone else's day.

Watching women's sports (specifically softball this time) is helping me to (I hate this term) feel empowered, admire other women's achievements/skills, and feel inspired especially seeing them all play together as teammates. Also, I think it is helping with my body image issues because plenty of them forego makeup and all have varying body types but are still athletic and living their best life. I know college sports might not measure up to professional, but I enjoy them especially. They don't go hard in changing their bodies with steroids or that sort of thing, maybe the games are considered less high stakes but I seriously admire them all the same. I just feel so happy from watching and it makes me more excited for when I can make female friends. I kinda hope I can recreationally play softball someday as well.

I half-heartedly applied for financial aid at my uni not expecting much aside from shitty loans because I thought had to be well below the poverty line to be considered. I make enough money to live comfortably, but can't save much month to month even on a pretty strict budget. I just found out that I've been offered a very generous grant that will cover like 70% of my tuition. I am utterly shocked and this is seriously life changing for me. I was thinking I'd have to live hand to mouth for the next year but I'll actually be able to put some money away for when I plan to move later on. I'm so stunned, happy and relieved! The gov't has never really done shit for me but whatever initiative led to this is awesome!

I don't really have groundbreaking tips, but here's my story: I got lucky with a decent paying job after uni, so that really helped. If I had a lower paying job, this wouldn't have been possible. I did put away 50 to 60% of my net salary into the loan. Additionally, I'm pretty thrifty and the lockdown/pandemic helped a LOT, since I wasn't going out or eating out or buying as much clothes (though I never did those two that much before the pandemic). Finally, it took me about 1.5 years to do it (Dec 2019 - yesterday)

he goes down on me as foreplay for at least 20 mins every time before sex and he is incredible at oral so i came twice during that, then because i'm super turned on the sex is amazing and his dick is curved so that it hits my g-spot perfectly during missionary so i came three more times from that… i swear when he's fucking me its like one long orgasm the entire time with "peaks" it's so amazing. i am such a lucky gal.

i think its seriously all about the combo of good, patient foreplay to get you in the mood and then finding the perfect angle once you start PIV… i'm lucky that his penis suits me enough that i don't have to work too hard for it to hit my g-spot but typically tilting your hips so that the dude's dick goes in deep and angles up is the best way to hit your g-spot! i have had the best luck when i'm on top riding and grinding back and forth or missionary and shifting my hips. and when all else fails a vibe is always fun to integrate to kick things off hehe. godspeed ladies!!! get that nut!

Everyday when she's at work and I'm going to the hospital she's texting me and calling me every minute she can, she sends me random thing to make me smile: cute pokemon fanart, silly memes, pictures of cats. When I'm feeling like I've had my brain put in a blender afterwards the mere sound of her voice on the phone calms me. And every day without fail, whether she's been busy with work or not, I come home to a hot bath and a home cooked meal. I vent and tell her my worries and she listens and listens and listens. And then she tells me what I need to hear, not what I want, what I need. She reminds me why we're fighting this as a team. I go to bed not fearing the next days radiotherapy.

So far I've just been in training and I'm still a little scared because I've never been good with my speech, I stutter a bit and sometimes words slip out wrong due to processing issues or I take a while to respond thanks to LPD, but I feel hopeful that this may help me and I'm trying to break out of my shell of being scared of people. I know that really nobody is going to mind it and I'll adapt. This is such a huge step for me towards obtaining happiness and independence, I was so anxious for years I never thought I could do this.

I just remembered a really cute memory from my childhood. Me and my siblings would go to my grandparents house for a sleepover, usually our parents would pick us up after lunch the next day. Sometimes they made hot dogs for us and they had this "hot dog house" that they'd steam the hot dogs in. I remember being really excited about the hot dog house, my grandparents always made it really fun too. To my little kid mind, those hot dogs were the best thing ever. Pic related, it's the hot dog house

That's awesome! The first step to conquering a fear is remembering that making mistakes isn't fatal, but it can feel like such a massive chasm to cross. The fact you've taken it is a testament to your commitment to improve. I hope you're able to build the confidence you need for yourself!

Hey anon! I'm so proud of you! One of my first real jobs was as a cashier, and let me tell you, it was nerve wracking as hell! I remember hearing the shakiness in my voice and seeing my my fingers shake as I tried to figure out what buttons to press. You'll get the hang of it anon, I believe in you! Most people are kind and understanding when you mess up, and learning to deal with the shitty ones is just an unfortunate part of life. I hated working retail but I think it's a very good place to start learning basic skills and learning how to interact with many different people. Eventually you'll build up a cache in your brain of phrases to use and it'll be second nature interacting with people! I think it'll also help you build up a thicker skin too. Best of luck anon, and congratulations on the job!

This is so cute anon… the little hot dog house…!!

For my little piece of positivity today, I went into my parents room and saw that my dog was awake so I went to give her some pats. She was still so sleepy and could barely keep her eyes open as I held her head and rubbed her face and ears. She likes to rub her eye boogies on me which is kinda gross, but I like to think she's blessing me with her puppy goodness. I've had her for so long, some days I still can't believe what a cute old grandma she is. I feel so blessed to have her in my life.

Congratulations anon! Retail helped me a lot with dealing with my social anxiety, I learned how to speak without hesitation, be assertive and to carry myself confidently, and now I have a nice office job in the field I've studied in.

I'm proud of myself because I repaired the broken glass on my phone all by myself. Normally with any tech problems I run to the nearest techbro for help but this time I watched a YouTube video, ordered the component and installed it. It looks so new and shiny and it cost so little to do!

This fucking picture KEK

I'm finally down to my high school healthy weight! After anorexia I fell for the binge recovery thing. I got better really quickly, but I also got really fat. I went from 88lbs to 245lbs in the space of three years. I didn't try to lose it for a few years, because I didn't want to get poorly again and end up in a cycle of starving and bingeing.
Anyway, once I got my head together and started loosely calorie counting and moving more, and I've lost ~100lbs since September. I'm 5'8" and 140lbs and though that's not skinny, it feels right for me because I'm at the weight I was before all of this happened. I'm proud of myself. I'm not in a disordered headspace. ​It feels so good to have a second chance.

That's a huge accomplishment anon, well done and congrats! At your height 140 lbs sounds quite slender, so long as you're healthy and happy with your looks that's great. Best of all I'm glad to hear you're in a good mental place and treating yourself well.

I'm the same anon hehe. I always try to reply nice things to anons just because I like being replied to with nice things! I always feel bad when I write a mean post lmao. It doesn't matter whether I'm nice or rude since everyone's anonymous but that's part of why I like to be nice too!

I procrastinated on a bunch of important stuff and also got very little sleep last night but despite my utter lack of time management capability I still managed to get through the day and complete all my tasks without becoming an embarassment. I feel dead but relieved and I promise myself I won't procrastinate again (at least for the next couple weeks). It's exciting to think how high my power level would be if I actually got my shit together.

I went out with my boss for something work related, and he suggested we get lunch afterwards. There was a big observatory tower nearby and he asked if there was a restaurant in there (because I googled and found another place just a few blocks away) and I said yes but it was very expensive (saw it on google and didn't suggest it because $$$). He said, "well, it's part of our job and we can go for research." We had to pay for observatory tickets to go up the tower to even reach the restaurant and he said "yeah this counts as work too" and charged it all to the corporate card kek. I already really like my job so these occasional great perks are just the cherry on top.

My brother has been dating a girl for the past 3 months and just told me about it and I'm so pleased for him. He's good looking enough and smart but he has a really bad stutter that's impacted him negatively his whole life. I don't think he's ever had a gf before this tbh. Growing up people would call him retarded because of how hard it was for him to speak clearly. She looks cute and seems really nice, I wish them well!
