Every night, my 17 year old kitty will come into bed and lay down on my chest and stretch his little paws out, one on each side of my head, and I pet his soft pretty fur and listen to his purr until we both fall asleep.

omg mine too, he will sit on the bed and wait for me to lie down then immediately lie on my chest so we're nose to nose. And then he'll rub his face against mine for a bit before sleeping. It's too cute, but usually he's not clingy with me so I assume he just sees me as a good electric blanket.

So cuuuute. I love having pets so much. It's so fucking special to have this heart to heart connection with a member of an entirely different species, it's also surreal. I feel like humans don't deserve it tbh. But I'm grateful as fuck.

So true, it's crazy that actual living creatures end up being so comfortable and affectionate with us. It's especially cool with cats because they retain so much of their instincts and seem so wild at times, they have similar body language to big cats so I always think of it like a tiny panther (my cat is black) choosing to cuddle with me kek.

Even at 17 my little guy will attack hair elastics and little fabric fish like he's going to murder them, rolling around on the floor biting and kicking them, it's hilarious and awesome to watch. I'm so glad he's so healthy, I'm going to go hold him and cry now.

I taught my dog tricks and obedience exercises and she's so good at them. She's very clever and she seems to have fun (I give her pets and treats afterwards!). The ones she likes the most seem to be fetching/hounding and jumps, but I love how elegant she looks while she heels. I'm only sad that her ear seems to have some problems.

I just took my first quiz of medical school (MD) and I'm feeling cautiously optimistic!

I actually started med school last year, but had to leave after a few weeks due to crippling depression from suddenly losing my stepmom. Also, my med school is on the opposite side of the country from my hometown, and we were obviously in a pandemic.

I really hope I can do well and become a doctor. It'd mean everything to me.

My stepfather recently finished The Last of Us and he and I were talking about it today on the phone and he was telling me about how he loved the writing of the characters and how he related to Joel because he was really broken by his daughter being stillborn but he found hope again when he started dating my mum and he met me. He said I'm his Ellie because we both helped each other out with our issues and I started bawling my eyes out immediately. I fucking love this man, I thought when my mother cheated on him and left he'd never want to see me again but he stayed in my life. When we immigrated he sent me letters and packages with little gifts like my favourite foods from back home and I visit him as much as I possibly can now. Even when I met my bio father it never got weird. He put aside his ego and gave him a chance and now things are genuinely stable. It's a weird family model I guess but fuck, I'm so thankful for this man. Without his guidance I wouldn't be where I am today. For my wedding day both he and my bio father are walking me down the aisle and I couldn't be prouder. I just gotta stop him playing the second game now so it doesn't destroy his view of Joel and Ellie's story lol.

My mom and I used to have a really rocky relationship. I was annoying as fuck as a teenager and my mom has anger issues and we ended up going very low contact as soon as I moved out. It was really hard to cope with being a young adult without a security net (My dad was barely ever in the picture and my extended family is insane) and for a while I was pretty resentful towards her.

Now, some years later, our relationship is better than ever. Her birthday is next week and I got her a big present that I know she will love.
I took time off work on her birthday and asked her if she wants to hang out and she was so happy I asked.
We settled on going to the zoo, which is something we could never afford when I was a child. I went with my grandparents and with school but we never went together.

I bought tickets and told her and she said spending time together is the greatest gift and I've been crying about it like a baby all night. I spent so much money on this dumb specific hobby thing of hers and all she wanted was spend time together.

Growing up maybe isn't so shit when it means you have adult money and aren't a retarded teenager anymore.

I'd been thinking lately that I have an ugly smile. I thought my eyes looked weird and small, my nostrils huge, and my smile lines just so deep and prominent. But it was recently my birthday and my sister took a picture of me with my cake, and when she sent it to me… I liked what I saw. Turns out what I hated was the smile I did in test selfies or while posing in the mirror, where I thought I was mimicking my genuinely happy smile but really it was too forced. My natural smile… looks damn good on me!

>>872369
I'm really happy for you anon, and I can somewhat relate. Growing up my siblings and I were awful to each other; sometimes we physically fought. Now that we're older, we all genuinely talk to and confide in one another, and feel like real friends. It's not necessarily "good" that our relationship was ugly once, but the "good" thing you get from that is that you're able to be honest and vulnerable with each other. I hope it's only uphill from here for you and your mom!

I posted it in the other positivity thread but I feel the same way anon!!!

This is so cute anon. I'm glad I grew up, because now I have the clarity to realize just how much my parents sacrificed for me and I'm so grateful to them. They're far from perfect, but they love me and I love them. I hope you'll have many more joyous birthdays and holidays with your mom anon!

I've been studying for a government position and even if I don't get in (it's a very competitive position), I'm learning a lot about economy and that's always good. I've been watching some online classes about it and the teacher is amazing, his method is great and I also admire some of his accomplishments that I went looking for.
Soon I can move on to financial math, I hope, cause I'm also very bad at math in general.

I'm finally starting to look and feel like myself. for pretty much all of my life I've felt very disconnected from my physical appearance and I developed a personality that didn't really feel like "me" in order to minimise the bullying I was experiencing when I was a child/in my teens (I was objectively very plain and weird). as I've gotten older I feel like my features have improved but I've struggled to find my own identity and a personal style, and have tied so much of my 'self' to the opinions of others. earlier this year I just had a "fuck it" moment, deleted my whiney, overshare-filled social media, cut my hair short, started dressing the way I've always wanted to, started therapy again so I could work through my shit in private, got my first tattoo. I got a cool part time job and I'm finishing up my masters degree and I've made new friends and picked up new hobbies. I have a boyfriend who ljves me and I have conviction in my own beliefs and opinions and I feel much more like a beautiful and worthwhile person.

I feel so blessed to still be friends with my close friends from highschool. I know lots of people just ditch each other after highschool like “good riddance!” but my best friends from highschool are so sweet and we are always rooting each other on. I don’t feel any competition or jealously towards them, just pure love and support. I don’t even have any common interests with them, we just hung out in highschool because we clicked and then stayed friends (out of survival in a way I guess) but our personalities click SO well that we are friends as we head towards our 30s, on very different life paths, with the only common denominator being that we went to highschool together. We rarely get to all see each other, and even our text chat only comes alive a few times a year, but I feel like there is such a deep bond between us and they are no lesser in my life than other friends and I am no lesser in their lives. It’s a special feeling to feel so secure in your place in the eyes of other people. I don’t think I can ever fully and properly articulate how much they mean to me, I just love them so much.

I went to go see my friends yesterday, and I'm so glad that I did. I almost didn't want to go because I've been spending almost every weekend out seeing friends and just wanted a weekend for myself to decompress and conk out, but I haven't seen this group of friends in almost two years, so I decided to go. I took a different train out there than usual, and even just on the platform I had a nice time waiting for my train. It was sunny, with wispy clouds, and a nice cool breeze. Just a few people on the platform, and I enjoyed walking up and down and taking photos for myself. On the actual train ride I almost started crying as I was looking out the window because I felt so grateful for my existence and the beauty of the world that was passing by in front of me. At my friends house, we caught up and had a relaxing time chatting and eating food and having drinks. Her mom gave some friends some vegetables from her garden and let me take some of her basil to propagate.

I am so happy to be alive nonnies. Life is can be so incredibly cruel, but also so incredibly wonderful. I cherish all the good moments that I'm allowed to have, and cherish these friends who still love and care for me as much as I love and care for them even though in the past I just completely fucked off when I went away for college. I hope nonnies have similar friendships, or will find similar friendships, in their lives. Yesterday was really one of those reminders where I thanked myself for not killing myself before, because even just simply connecting with friends after a long time is worth living for. I went through a lot, and sticking it out was worth it. I've exited the tunnel and now I'm basking in the light.

I met a snakey on a bike ride and I saved his life, he was right in the middle of the path and I did this sick break and slide shit like I was TJ Detweiler and scooped him up. He was super friendly, he was very curious about my phone and when I would move it to get a look at him, he was turn to face it. Very photogenic guy. I put him on the other side of the path, where he was headed, into some damp leaves. I miss him.

A bit of a brag - before COVID I attended a friend’s birthday party, drank and danced, met lots of new people, played beer pong, basically had a grand old time. We lost contact with each other when quarantine began and just recently caught up. He admitted to me that in the days after his birthday he got messages from several people asking who the fun girl was who “killed it at beer pong” because they wanted to get to know me better. One guy even said “she destroyed me and I kinda liked it.” He had to tell them all I was with someone at the time, so I recall some friend requests from some attendees but no one particularly flirty. But I have to admit I loved the ego boost I got from this news anyway! A little damper is that it made me sorely miss parties and meeting new people!

Someone posted a baby sinclair pic in another thread and fuck.. the fuzzy feeling of nostalgia it gave me. Not just the show itself but memories of all the things I watched with my mom at the time. I'd be laughing at the slapstick jokes, she'd be laughing at the jokes that went over my head.

It was an uptight house when my dad was home but those moments when he was at the pub we'd laugh til we teared up. We'd let loose. It's like I unlocked some lost memories. The good ones.

I love my cat so much it hurts, she cuddles with me every night and right now we’re spooning and she’s snoring and I’m on my phone posting on lc, she is so soft and pure and I would literally die for her. She woke up a little, but I kissed her forehead so she just stretched her paws a little and scooted closer to me. She’s 14 and I still can’t get over how god damn cute she is and how we have this beautiful relationship with her where we play hide and seek, nap when we feel like it, run around the house and spend every night huddled together in a soft ball of pure love. She’s always so proud of the toys she brings me and I love the way she says ”mama” when she’s excited to see me.

I reconnected with someone I went to college with because we now work in our field of study. We were never close, but I respect him because he’s clearly very passionate about the field and has honestly done SO many cool things in it (arranging talks, doing an internship at a major org, giving a speech at said org) but is still very sweet and supportive to me, a fool who has fumbled into my current job through sheer luck. I’m so grateful for being allowed to be here, and today we were catching up because I posted that I got press clearance at the org he interned at and while talking about work, he offered me the opportunity to cowrite an opinion article with him if I wanted to!! Which is such a cool opportunity!! It’s an opinion piece so it’ll be low stakes it I muck up, and he offered to split the pay for the piece, but it feels like another stroke of sheer dumb luck in my life. I can’t believe he’d be willing to extend the opportunity to me.

I’m just so, so grateful for the people in my life. It’s a “who knows who” game in my field (like every field I guess lol) but to just have the chance and possibility of freelance writing with my classmate solely because we happened to take a few classes together and crack some dumb jokes… it feels too dumb to be true. Maybe nothing will come of it! Maybe we will not cowrite a piece at all! But just the fact that someone who I really respect is willing to take the chance on me, means so much to me. It feels like the universe isn’t throwing me crumbs, it feels like it’s thrown me a fully stocked kitchen and is telling me to make something already! Also, I caught up with a friend I made while studying abroad but ended up ghosting in the throes of my depression. I apologized again, but I’m happy he’s still willing to reach out to me… he’s been so patient and was there for me when I was suffering alone in that foreign country.

I have so many good people in my life and I can’t thank the universe/god enough for it.

Yesterday I saw the most beautiful thing I've ever seen in my life. It was like a movie.
We were driving home through the countryside at sunset, and in this field at the top of a hill was this gorgeous horse. She was beige, with a blonde mane and tail. She was up there on that hill looking so majestic, shaking her mane and making little steps with her hoof. The sunset hit her, and it was like her hair was gold and fire. God it was so beautiful I could cry.

I loves him

I found this stuffed cat in the middle of the road (picrel is from ebay or something, but that's him), he was all covered in dirt and you could tell he had it rough. I took him home and unstuffed him and gave him a good wash, and gave him some new polyfill.
I'm thinking of making him into a badass villain. Like his whole back story is that he was abandoned and left for dead, and he was taken in by me and nursed back to health, but his heart still has so much anger. He wants revenge on people who abandon the companions they say they love so much when they stop being fun to them.
So I'm going to make him a sick cape, put some fancy wrist bands on his front paws, maybe a couple earrings and maybe even a crown. But he needs a cool name.
Any suggestions??

Didn't play a podcast last night as I went to bed so that I could fall asleep to the sound of the heavy rain. I woke up and did my morning workout with the bright sun coming into my apartment, then took a nice warm shower because it's a tiny bit chilly out. The trains got super fucked up because of the rain but I've been blessed to be allowed to work from home, so I'm working from home again today.

I know this might not seem like a big deal, but my boyfriend is so thoughtful. Yesterday I didn't feel like going to the supermarket, so he offered to order me delivery from a nice restaurant. He got what I asked for, but he also added in a whole bunch of extra food so I have something to eat the next couple of days. I always feel a little guilty when someone spends money on me, so I didn't order as much food as I wanted to. Yet he knew this and ordered all the extra things I love anyway. Even though we are long distance for now, he always finds ways to make me feel loved and show that he cares.
It may seem like a small thing, but he is consistently generous despite me being bad at asking for what I want. I get the feeling most men will cheap out if their partners aren't demanding, but I never have to ask and he gets me anything I want, even if it's expensive. Even if he doesn't get any use out of what he gets me or doesn't get to see me use it, it just makes him happy knowing I'm happy.

I am so happy! I have been making a lot of female friends recently and have been arranging moments for us to meet and spend time together. I have not been rejected yet by the girls whom I am most compatible with. I have also let go of all insecurity in these interactions as I truly just want to connect with other women and build valuable relationships. I am so grateful this has been paying off and manifesting itself so wonderfully. I am also very excited for the activities we have planned. Building a strong network of various friendships with unique and talented women is so important to me, and I am so blessed to be able to pursue this. I hope I can help others build valuable connections as well. In addition, my confidence in general is much stronger now than before, primarily due to the conscious decisions I have been making to let go of insecurity, immaturity and past hurt. Men still act in their usual ways, but I am unbothered by them. Their energy and attitude has no place in my life. Whatever they choose to do and how they choose to treat me has lost its effect. I am very grateful to have this mindset and lifestyle… Finally, I recently ended things with a semi-boyfriend. Our relationship existed to teach me many lessons, including one that I have been struggling with for the majority of my life yet again. Although it required some time, I ultimately made the conscious decision to respect myself and my worth. I ended things respectfully and on a positive note. I hold no resentment towards him nor regret towards what we had, because I understand my value and how to live life right now. I am so grateful to now simply be left with warm memories and a stronger me, as well as no intense male influence in my life. I am truly just overjoyed to be surrounding myself more and more with fantastic women and far less with low value men. Life is very wonderful and I am proud of myself for putting in the effort to create a life like this. I still have a lot of goals to achieve but I am already so glad and thankful for my present situation. I am very proud of myself and confident in my abilities as well as the workings of the universe to bring me towards my dream life and highest self. <3 <3 thank you for reading : )

I feel like my teeth are looking amazing, sure, they’re not exactly perfectly aligned like those from toothpaste commercials, nor shiny white.
But they have a nice color and shape. And I feel like I feel like this because my new dentist is amazing, she explains everything that she does as she does her job and I don’t know, I felt great.

I love my cat so much. He's so beautiful and adorable. He let's me touch his little feet, and rub his soft belly. He is the cutest thing I've ever seen in my liiife. He follows me everywhere and is very talkative. He has his own seat in every room so he can hang out while I work or while I play games or whatever. He doesn't like laying in the bed in case he gets bopped in the middle of the night, so he sleeps right next to the bed at night. Precious. His favorite thing to play with is paper bags, he tears them up and throws the pieces all over the floor and I think it's hilarious. He also knows how to play fetch! He can also walk on a leash. He knows lots of words too, and always comes when I call him or gets up to leave the room if I tell him to come with me. He has coffee bean toes, and his little nose is the color of rosewood. He has four white mittens, and spots all over his sandy colored tummy. His fur is full of beautiful swirls of black on his back and legs and intricate patterns on his little forehead. What a beauty. I love my cat.

I took a look at some recipes and it's also piss easy to make yourself, e.g. https://delightfuldeliciousdelovelyblog.wordpress.com/2016/05/10/vegan-char-siu-or-chinese-bbq-pork-ribs/ - just go easy on the sweeteners if you try one of these recipes out because the sugar content seems like it was meant for meat marinades (i.e. disgustingly high for more absorbent plant products) and don't use pre-minced garlic because that's repulsive. If you don't like seitan then I bet this would taste really good with some extra firm tofu you carefully pressed, or that five-spice tofu that comes pre-pressed.
Those veggies (bok choy and carrot) look steamed or (way too) lightly sauteed, which you can do yourself within a matter of minutes, even better if you saute them with some garlic and ginger in vegetable oil and a dash of soy sauce if you'd like. If you have trouble cooking rice then you can serve it over straight ramen or even soba noodles and it'd probably turn out pretty okay.

Fuck yeah anon!! I'm very biased but short hair is far superior heh. Minimal upkeep but maximum cute (well, depending on your hair texture I guess). Also, I didn't know you could get spiderveins lasered off! I should get the ones on my face lasered off one day.

Finally set up a doctor's appointment! I recently got good health insurance through my job but I'm still opting to go to the health center I usually go to (for low income/no insurance people) just because they have my previous health records and if I lose this insurance I know I can still afford to go to this place kek. The receptionist I spoke to this time was very nice and clarified right off the bat if I wanted in person or telehealth (had a bad mixup last time), and I got scheduled in to see the specific doctor I want! It's over a month's wait but she has very good reviews so I hope it's worth it. If all else fails, this place has a fuck ton of doctors so I can keep switching around doctors til I find one I like heh. I'm also going to see the dentist next month, and I've got a lot of money I can freely spend on medical expenses (insurance/company is very generous) so I'm thinking of seeing a chiropractor too just for the hell of it for my persistent lower back pain.

My friends love hanging out, but we're all a bunch of people pleasers, so planning used to be a nightmare because no one wanted to be the one making a decision where to eat, where to meet up or what to bring and to whom. I have now started to plan the stuff ahead and just text everyone a group message asking if they want to tag along when I'm done. It feels so nice to be able to tell people I've booked a table for 4 at a local restaurant at a certain time and date, and right away have people reply that they want to come. No more "uh any day/place is fine really what about you guys" nonesense. I love my friends.

Ever since I met my best friend, I’ve really fallen in love with the holiday season and gift giving. My family doesn’t celebrate the holidays (or any holiday/birthday really), so it was a breath of fresh air to meet my best friend who is really gung ho about the holidays. She hates it when you ruin surprises, of your own gift or hers too, which really adds to the spirit of it hehe. I used to like the holiday, admittedly for selfish reasons for liking getting gifts. I didn’t like giving them, and honestly from the end of each holiday season til the next I am loathing buying gifts and have a backup list of safe gifts to buy, but every year the PERFECT item manifests itself in front of me and I am so, SO excited to give it to my friends and see their reaction. I truly, truly enjoy the act of finding the perfect gift for them, wrapping it, and giving it to them, very much more than I am to receive gifts. I would honestly be happy with just heartfelt and handwritten cards, oh those are 100% the way to my heart, I love them so much and I always try to write one for friends. I am broke for my friends but it’s okay because I get so excited seeing them wear or use something that I got them that so perfectly embodies their personality and spirit. Halloween hasn’t even happened yet but god fucking dammit I am READY for Christmas!!!

Anonitas, I’ve been seriously thinking about life lately. And I’ve came to the conclusion that… is okay being in your own bubble, is okay to not follow the herd and we should all embrace what we had been given. Bad and good stuff will happen but what only matters is you, not what’s on trend or what others think, only what you are and believe matters and it matters for you. Life is hard and is not fair but we should all give a shot at happiness as hard as we can, however we can, cause our time is short. I appreciate all of you nonnies very deeply, I’ve been listening to Minecraft Relaxing Music Box 10 Hours (Rain + Visuals) on youtube for days and I’m on my period so I’m very emotional rn.

I became a mom earlier this year and watching my baby grow every day is one of the greatest privileges I have ever known. It’s been more than half a year and I still tear up every morning when I first wake up and see her. I’m so happy that I didn’t go through with suicide in the depths of my depression years ago. Back then I never would have thought that my brain and body could recover this completely. I’m thankful that I was able to get help and wind up in the situation I’m in now. I’ve never been so happy to be this busy and tired every day.

This is so fucking sweet. I love reading about the adoration mamas have for their babies, it's so comforting to me. I'm very thankful for my parents (despite their shortcomings) and I often come across more parent appreciation posts, but I also really love reading more about parents just talk about their love for their child. Not just gushing about their accomplishments, but just pure, unconditional love. I love that shit so much and it makes me love the world and existing to know that it exists, and there are good, loving parents like yourself who look at your babies and see the whole world. I don't want children of my own, and at the same time I feel hopeless thinking about what kids will have to grow up with given where humanity and the earth is heading, but I remember seeing a post somewhere when someone was asked why they wanted to have a kid in this climate and they said "it's because of my kid that I strive to make the world a better place" or something like that.

I also made plans with said friend and some other friends for Halloween that I'm super excited about, and also today at work I had an almost fairytale-esque encounter with a (really cute) fellow lesbian who wanted to exchange numbers with me. There's even more I could say, but these are the big things that have happened to me lately. Like holy shit, I don't even know what I did to deserve these good things, and even typing it now, it feels so fake 'cause it's all perfectly aligned.

Had a really nice date night with my bf today!!! We visited the local market and made an delicious Fall dinner together, fish and ravioli with chestnut and kabocha, with a salad on the side. I also got him to watch Cowboy Bebop with me and he really liked it (he's not a weeb).

After years of rotting away in NEETdom and crushing depression I'm finally starting to see that there's a way for me to get my life back.

I’m happy for you anon! Good luck at your new job! I do think retail is soul sucking to an extent and I would never go back, but I don’t regret working in retail for a few years. You build up thick skin, you learn transferable skills (working under pressure, how to interact with all sorts of people, maybe even management skills if they promote you), and it’s just a good place to begin a solid work foundation if you have none. Also, while I hated my last retail job, the people I met were fucking awesome. I don’t make friends like that in the office jobs I work now. I still talk to quite a few of the friends I made! I hope you’ll succeed in life and will be able to pursue your dream business one day soon!

I went to see Miyavi with friends tonight, my first concert since the pandemic started and boy have I missed them! I’ve never been the biggest fan of Miyavi, but I knew of him and listened to some songs when I was really into visual kei bands. My friends and I went since the tickets weren’t expensive and we saw him at a con a few years ago and enjoyed it. I only know a few of his songs and even then I’m not the biggest fan of his newer songs but I can and will have the time of my life at any concert I go to and let me tell you anons, I definitely had the time of my life tonight! Lots of jumping and dancing, and really enjoying that concert energy with the rest of the crowd. I couldn’t see him at times but even when I could see him it didn’t matter because I was jumping and swinging my head around so much that my vision was kinda blurry anyway. I am tired but I’ve really missed going to concerts and how fun they are. Also, I found out his older music is on Spotify now so I’m just going to listen to him on repeat for a few days now heh. I can’t believe he’s still this attractive at 40 with three kids.

Samefag I realize I didn't really answer the question lol. Working on your voice means practicing things like breathing, posture, enunciation, and pacing yourself. Like anything, you practice it until you just do the right things naturally without thinking in everyday conversation. Having a good program like Love's is nice because there are a lot of bad habits I didn't even know I had. I started it thinking I just want to sound louder and clearer. But after a few lessons I realized why my throat hurts after speaking for a while, I have vocal fry because I don't breathe enough when I talk. When I started breathing the right way, being clear and loud enough became a lot easier.

I had the day off today so I got some fresh fish from the market while I was there and then made my own kinda "gourmet" version of a McDonalds fish burger and dropped it off at work for her when I knew she'd be taking lunch. She looked so happy when I showed her what I had and she said it's the best she's ever tasted! I was actually worried she wouldn't like it so that was such a relief lol.

I had an amazing week-end, I went to a lovely city specially to finally see one of my favorite band twice, it was at an opera house so it was a beautiful place, the setlist was great and the musicians were amazing, I couldn't believe the drummer and one of the main singers were in their 70s, they were still so talented. At first I had planned to only go to the first show (it was postponed for a year because of corona) but I decided in the end to go to the two shows, and good thing I did, the very last song they played was one of my favorites, the very one which introduced me to the band, it was beautiful to finally see it live.

I know I've bonded over this with a nonny before, but ever since I've moved into my own place after living with an evil ex I love not only the freedom but the ability to be a disgusting goblin. My place is clean and organized (no scrote messes to deal with) but in terms of behavior, being able to walk around half naked with a food baby gut, belch/fart freely, go makeup-free when I have a zit forming, wet or unstyled hair, eat tons of snacks, not shaving very often, tossing period waste in my bathroom trash without worrying about covering it up.

I know I know, women in relationships technically can do all these things, but personally I really felt the pressure to be perfect all the time and come across flawlessly composed in my own home. (No doubt because said ex was especially controlling.) Shit's exhausting. I'm no enby but truly, fuck gender as a social construct. Men don't have to do or care about any of this garbage and still get lauded as heroes if they manage to clean their ass cheeks. I fucking love being able to exist without anyone's judgment and I will never give this up again.

This is why I can't imagine ever living with a guy. I want freedom to be mildly gross when I'm in private, and I don't think I could relax except around immediate family who love me unconditionally. A partner does not love me unconditionally, men can be super judgemental of women and how 'ladylike' we're supposed to be, I'd feel pressure to be attractive all the time.

I mean honestly, is a man even worth it if you have to hold in your farts in the comfort of your own home?

My favorite pho restaurant opened back up?! There was a huge fire like 5 years ago and I expected them to open up after a few months but 5 years had gone by with no news so my family and I gave up… but suddenly yesterday we saw that it was open again!! It's been so long I've stopped bothering to look at it and didn't even notice they had been working on it.

We have three pho restaurants in my neighborhood but they range from mediocre to shitty. I'm happy to see the true king come back to take its throne, and I'm excited and hopeful that it will still be as good, if not better. I used to go here all the time as a kid so it also has a special place in my heart.

I've posted about buying rollerblades before, but I finally put on my rollerblades and skated around my apartment yesterday. I bought them last month but due to back pain I couldn't skate. My back is much better (still doing exercises and stretches daily to make sure it stays that way!) but now my problem is my protective gear doesn't fit so I've avoided skating. I figured it wouldn't hurt to just skate in my small apartment and nonnies… it's everything I was hoping it would be and more!!

There's something so exhilarating about being on skates! I've been watching tons of tutorials and trying to be mindful about proper body positioning, and after a shaky and rough first few minutes, I was gliding up and down pretty easily! Maybe it was muscle memory from 15+ years ago kicking in?! I wanted to go out to the park but I was worried about not having protective gear and also being stared at for fumbling, but I guess I'll just have to suck it up with regards to the latter. I'm so excited to skate more, I don't care if it's getting colder out. It's Thanksgiving weekend here in the US so maybe I'll go out to my local park and skate in the morning despite no proper fitting gear yet. I'll have to install my heel brake too until I learn how to stop without it… aaaaaaaa nonnies I love skating!! Rollerblading is cool again I don't care what anyone says!!

As luck would have it, Amazon has the protective gear I was looking for in my size and on sale! So I snatched it up heh. Not the color I wanted but at this point I care less about color coordination and more about just not breaking my knee caps as I skate around like an idiot.

>>975255
Yes! Go for it anon! I think that they can be quite expensive (~$100 for a decent softboot when I was looking), but is there a place around you where you can rent a pair to try out? It's really fun to zoom around and I can't wait to feel confident enough to skate around in a big park!

>>975261
They sound so cute nonnie hehe. Mine are all black but I'm hoping to paint them one day! I'm sad that there seems to be a hole in the market for cute and high performance skates. Impala makes some really cute skates but I've read they're not the best performance-wise. I hope to skate for a long time so I invested in a pair of ugly but well regarded skates. I hope with the revival of rollerblading and the whole Y2K nostalgia thing that big companies will realize that they could open up their market to zoomers and women who like cute shit by just making cute shell colors kek. When I was researching skates I saw SO many posts on the subreddit by women asking specifically for cute skates!

I have BPD and my relationship with my boyfriend has become amazing. We've both matured and changed in so many ways and I haven't flipped out for a while. On his end, he's learned to listen. Like, he used to get annoyed at me when I'd vent or be emotional, but now he earnestly listens and tries to help me in a kind, gentle way. We are both sober (he is hard sober aka never drinks or smokes, I am soft aka I will have 1 drink maybe 2x a month but I never get drunk and I don't smoke weed; I still occasionally buy a pack of cigarettes but I want to quit for good next year) and I don't think I act in a way that would qualify me for a BPD diagnosis anymore.

I really miss the steep learning curve in reading I got when I was in China and starting to understand my surroundings better, so please share any techniques you have!

I am feeling hopeful for my future and like I have an actual plan for the first time in a long, long time.
It's a bit frustrating that I am sorting this stuff right now, kinda "wasted my 20s" (but not really), but it's good to feel hopeful.
This 2022 I will try to go back to studying japanese hard, get my JLPT, try for a JET programme that consists of working for an international relations office. If that doesn't work, I'll try the MEXT research program. If that doesn't work, I'll be, meanwhile, enrolled on a webdesign course. If that doesn't work, I'll apply for for another degree in 2023, this time for japanese linguistics, and travel to Japan as my brother did.
If noone of the above works, at least I can get more work here in my country as a webdesigner and/or as a translator. I always see these positions available but my design and japanese levels are not there yet. But they'll be. I can do this!

Nonnies, life can be good if we just keep it simple. I while back a friend of mine called me after finding out I had a loss in my family, she told me she found a job at a coffee shop but sounded kind of embarrassed (she has a degree in engineering) I was so happy for her. I told her that it was fantastic news and she sounded almost relieved, so that got me thinking.
You shouldn't be embarrassed or feel bad for having a "small" job, all honest work is good work. If you make enough to have a roof over your head consider yourself a winner! Have a small job, go out to the park on weekends with friends, family or just by yourself and just hang out, find enjoyment in watching tv shows on illegal streaming websites.
I'm a poorfag so I don't have much money most of the time but that has never stopped me from enjoying life. Don't worry about what society wants from you, do what you want, do crimes, be gay.

I've absolutely embraced working mediocre jobs and tbh I'm at the point where I almost feel sorry for people with impressive high flying careers instead. I'm sure they don't feel sorry for themselves, but I'm never jealous of someone's money or status if they have minimal free time and a tonne of stress at work. Chances are they also have a lot more student debt than me too.

That said I'm fortunate enough to have a well off family and a lot of financial security as a result, so I consider my ability to live off lower wages a luxury.

You're correct, I had a shitty call center for a year before finally having a job in the field I studied for and while it was awful overall it helped me so much because I really needed the money and it was during covid. I'm also seriously considering moving abroad in a few years once everything calms down, I don't care what kind of job I could get as long as I have money and free time. For example I keep seeing American expats in Japan laughing at new expats moving to Japan or Korea to become English teachers because it's not as amazing as it seems but it seems like a pretty normal job to me. Now that I have a new job my clients are most engineers and high level managers and they won't stop trying to call me during weekends and sometimes until 9pm. I wish I could earn as much as them but without their shitty schedules.

I have an autistic obsession with model horses). His parents popped in to say hello and wish me happy birthday too, it was actually his mom's idea to get me the cake.

I love this nonnas. Grass is always greener on the other side. I used to feel embarassed when I had to tell people what I did for work, but now I don't really care. I'm not a "live to work" kind of person and I don't like this "you MUST succeed at the top of your field" type of mentality. I've never felt that sort of life calling to a specific job, career, or field. I just go wherever will pay me a semi-decent wage and will let me actually live my life. Am I expected to work until my 60s and then enjoy my life? No, I want to enjoy it now. I'm very fortunate that a lot of people at my company are very strict with their work-life balanace. There are those that will respond to an email off hours within a minute, but plenty of us that say "you need to wait until business hours because I don't get paid to care right now" lol. Some people really like the hustle of top tier well respected careers, but that sort of life isn't for me.

Time is more precious than money, and I know I'm in a very fortunate position to say that despite my shit salary. I like being able to see friends frequently, go out with family, and spend nights at home with my very old dog.

Good luck nonna!! I stopped studying Japanese after college and I feel a lot of guilty and anxiety when it comes to returning to my studies. I want to study it again but there's so much bad juju around it for me. I work for a Japanese company right now so it feels like it'd be the best place to practice (lots of coworkers are very friendly and try to encourage me to practice) but it's hard for me to overcome that intial anxiety. I hope you'll get N2 and get into JET! I used to want to do the CIR position but I don't really know if I want to work in Japan anymore haha.

this is a bit stupid but 3 years ago i wrote on the impossible dreams something like i wished i was able to scape from my household, but due how insane the schedule was i wasn't able to get a job. I wanted to give you guys a positive update i guess.

the following year i got a job at the uni that allowed me to work and study in the same place (25 hours a week salary amounted to almost nothing in my country), it wreked my health but i learned a lesson on putting boundaries and starting to be the one in charge of my life.

So far, things at my household have gotten better, I got diagnosed with adhd and thanks to the meds i've been able to manage much my studies and day to day life much better. I finally graduated (july) and got a full time job thanks to an intership i did. My mental health is the best its ever been. And thanks to the savings from that old job and the new full time job, i might be able to move out soon.

just wanted to say if anyone is struggling just keep pushing bit by bit, and always put your health first. At first i thought it didnt amount to much but looking back now i am proud to see the changes i've made in my life and how i've changed.

I got into my dream university! I applied for an extremely specific degree that suits my dreams and skills specifically. The university alongside its application process is tremendously rigorous, but my application was successful enough for me to be accepted. I was confident about being a strong contender throughout the process, yet it still brings true satisfaction and glee to conclude the process with a positive acceptance letter. I can't wait to enroll next autumn, it is going to be an absolutely amazing experience. I can already envision myself and the clothes I will wear whilst riding my bicycle to the relevant faculty and studying what fulfills me most in life. Whenever I read about the subjects, particularly in conjunction, I am overwhelmed with a unique sense of purpose. Studying these fields is uniquely invigorating. It is endlessly energising for me to occupy myself with these subjects, so I simply cannot wait until I can study them in an academic environment that suits my needs and abilities.

I love my best friend. I have a solid group of friends and I would consider a few handful of people to be my best friends, but I have one best friend were it feels like if this was another timeline, we'd probably be lovers. I never thought in my life I would have a friend so close, that would know me as well as I know her. Like if people ask me if she will like XYZ, I can really confidently answer them as if I was her. It's really like we share the same braincell sometimes. There have been moments where she has annoyed the absolute shit out of me and I didn't want to be her friend anymore, but at the end of the day I love having her in my life. We all have our shortcomings, and I'm not perfect either.

We have plans to move out together one day, and it's just a given at this point that we will live together some day. When we go into a Target or something, we'll look at appliances together and talk about which ones we want to get. Or we'll send each other other decorations or furniture we want to get. We met in college and used to be roommates and living with her was like a dream come true. I loved to come back to her. We've grown as people, but rather than grow apart, we push each other to become the best version of ourselves. I remember one time when I glanced over and she was at her desk on her laptop and she looked like she was concentrating hard on something so I thought "oh fuck I better work on my own assignments too", but in reality she was fucking off and looking at something completely unrelated, but when she looked over and saw me doing work she switched into doing work because she had the same thought I had earlier kek. I miss the days of tumblr, if only for those person specific tags people would have. Sometimes I go on her old blog and I browse through her tag for me and think "heh, she knows me so well." I love the holiday season because of her. I never thought that I'd actually enjoy giving gifts more than receiving them. Buying gifts can be difficult and troubling because it can be hard to find something the other person will like, but when it comes to her, it's difficult and troubling for the opposite reason! I'll find way too many things that I know she'll like!

Also, even though I'm quiet about my terf tendencies, we'll privately talk about how bullshit some of today's gender shit is. We'd never say it in front of our friends, but it feels like to quietly know that we both view things in a similar way (although I'm probably more critical about it than she is).

She is the sister I never had.

Had to disassemble it a bit because I messed up and didn’t even lose my shit, kept it cool and just fixed it. Kind of proud of myself for keeping the negative self talk down and just enjoying it.

He made me feel so comfortable and he listened to everything I said so intently and actually made me feel like we were taking steps to help me get better. It was so unexpected and refreshing. I'm going to put him in the "this scrote is okay" pile.

I had a close call with a male chiropractor who was literally a predator (turns out one of my current coworkers worked for him before and told me) and the next one I found close to me was unfortunately a moid too but I was in such crippling pain that I sucked it up and went. He was very nice and fun to talk to, and very conservative when it came time to having to touch my body. He was sympathetic to how much pain I was in, went over with me what might be causing my pain and really helped me through it, which was a lot better than my family doctor (who is female) who just prescribed me painkillers.

I'm glad your new family doctor doesn't suck!

Finding compassionate and non predatory male doctors is such a pain. I've only ever been to female doctors, except for dentists but sadly a lot of female ones (at least the one's I've been to) are so dismissive when it comes to my concerns and just give you some pills. Especially gynecologists.

Nonittas, I've been having a rough month, so I decided to throw a LC dinner party. All farmers are welcomed regardless of their post history, we'll have delicious food and mixed drinks or tea/coffee, whatever you want. If you want/need you can bring your meal/drink of choice, just don't leave your tupperware behind. No moids allowed, if you gotta bring your husbando he's gonna have to wait in the assigned "Husbando Room" until the party is over, waifus are permitted. I'll personally send an invitation to komaeda-anon so she can grace us with her presence (or make us ill, whichever happens).

Hope you can come and enjoy yourself!

Fell out of touch with my ex gf for years and finally found the courage to message her and tell her how much I've missed her. I didn't even think she'd respond but she did and it completely exceeded my expectations. Feels like I might get a second chance to build a friendship with her. I can barely imagine the possibility that she still has feelings for me since I'm still completely in love with her, if that was the case I think my heart would explode from pure joy. Just having the chance to talk to her again makes me feel like I'm on cloud 9. She's such an incredible woman I'm so grateful for this.

When I was a kid I thought I was ugly as fuck. I kept thinking "I can't wait until I'm an adult and I'm pretty" because my cousin who was 10 years older than me always seemed so pretty to me.

Now I'm an adult and I do think I'm pretty. Actually, I think I've always had good features, but I was trapped by bad young teen styling of the early 2000s and low self esteem kek. I just looked at myself in the mirror today and just kept thinking "wow I look good." There are things that I'm don't entirely like, but I don't hate them enough to consider plastic surgery.

I'm finally the pretty adult I've always wanted to be. I'm no head turner but I think I'm at the perfect balance of "very happy with my appearance" and "painfully average to everyone else so people (i.e. men) leave me alone when I'm out."

I've never had a desire for a romantic relationship. I deal with depression and I have never met someone who was understanding of it long term. I'm one of those odd personalities that only meshes with a specific kind of person romantically, otherwise there's no feelings at all. I have a pretty good idea of what I want. My experiences and views are near identical to Sekhmet She Owl. I resigned I'd be alone for the rest of my life, but I met a man who just left NEETdom, like myself, at our new job. He's very kind, soft-spoken, hard working, very patient with the physical things, and lets me go on radfem tirades and actually reads the literature. He browses 4chan and we have similar niche interests in aerospace and the occult. I can be myself, he has not negged me once in all the time I've known him or tried to change anything about me. He's encouraging me to finish my STEM degree and get back into sports & gym with him. I won the lotto. He's meeting the rest of my family tomorrow.

I bought a Pikachu passcase in Japan many years ago when I was a student. I used the hell out of that thing since it was a passcase, then it eventually just became a cute giant plush keychain on my bag when I came back to the states. The pulling thread got thinned down so much after so much usage that it snapped one day, but thankfully it was while I was leaving work and I forgot something in the office so I found it when on the floor when I turned back to get something I forgot. It sucks because I can’t even fix it, so it sits on my bookshelf. My best friend gave me a fluffy Pikachu head passcase for Christmas! She tried to find the exact one I had and found the specific series/line it’s from but she couldn’t find the passcase anywhere, but still! I’m so happy that she even got me another one.

Today immediately after waking up I called my boyfriend because I missed him. he was with his parents at the time and so they heard I was on the phone with him. my name is also a word that is featured in a few sweet songs, and his father started singing one of them for me. having lost my father when I was younger, it was especially meaningful to me. although my boyfriend and his mother teased and "scolded" his father for it, I genuinely appreciated it. it really made my morning and provided such a wonderful start to my day.

Botched nose jobs are usually because people want to have a completely new nose when that's not rhinoplasties are supposed to do. That's how you get hot messes like Ollie London whose nose is basically collapsing on itself They are supposed do some light smoothing in and little reductions, not give you a button nose when your original nose is nothing of the sort. That's why celebrity nose jobs tend to always look good because they keep a lot of original imperfections such as not completely nerfing humps, but rather making them smaller, hence why people tend to not notice. A lot of people also don't realise that noses that are worked on will shrink over the couple of years.

When I was in elementary school, I was chosen to participate in this "Duck Stamp" contest, where you would draw a picture of a duck, and the best ones would be made into stamps. I participated for three years, so for three years I submitted swans. Fuck ducks. Swan life.

Two years ago my girlfriend gifted me a charm bracelet, and every birthday and christmas she gets me a charm for it. So far I have a ship that opens up to reveal a galley, a bird holding a letter, a kitten playing with a yarn ball, and a set of lucky symbols (a four leaf clover, a wishbone, and a die). I love it so much nonnies, it's such a thoughtful and cute gift and I love the charms she gets me.

My new leather boots I ordered came in today. They’re suuuper comfortable right out of the box, although a tiny bit snug but since they’re leather I’m hoping it’ll loosen up after a few wears. They’re so cute and I can’t wait to wear them out!

I can't believe I woke up half an hour earlier than I usually do just to play a full hour of ring fit adventure because I wasn't happy with the 30 minutes I normally manage to squeeze in in the morning.

I love this stupid game so much. It's so cheesy and dumb, but I enjoy my mornings because of it and despite waking up earlier, I still feel refreshed and awake at work. Hoping I can keep this up!

Yay! I hope you'll enjoy it! I had been sitting on whether or not to buy it for a while now, and a nona in the mail thread posted about it and that's what prompted me to buy my copy! I might not get absolutely shredded with it, but it makes working out feel very approachable and takes my mind off of being so obsessed with working out with the ultimate goal of having a nice body (leading to burn out which has happened before) and shifts it towards "yeah I want to level up/get more coins/beat this boss." Not everyone likes the gamification, but I sure do.

I also can't believe in the cumulative ~14 days I've been playing that I've done like, what, 500 squats? It doesn't even feel like it! An hour passes by like nothing when I'm playing it too. Have lots of fun nona!!

I went out to the park this morning to rollerblade!! I haven’t been able to skate for over a month because of time/weather and just generally feeling down about it, but today I was finally able to go out in the morning (which I always want to do because I like mornings and they are generally quieter) and the park was soooo empty besides some old people!!! I finally got to skate on wide open, flat ground!! I didn’t focus on practicing anything in particular because I didn’t want to get into that mindset of feeling that I have to improve and I just let myself enjoy skating around in circles instead. Skating makes my heart feel so full, it brings me so much joy, I don’t even know how to explain it. I’m shit at it but I don’t care. It makes me so happy when I’m skating. It was only 20F but I didn’t care, I had so much fun and I like skating in the cold. I think I’m gonna pay for private lessons with a well known slalom skater who happens to offer them in my city so I can get some solid pointers and advice. Online tutorials are great but I’d like to spend in person time with someone to learn. One day I hope I’ll be confident enough to skate outside of parks and actually just cruise around my neighborhood.

I've been getting into art again. It's making me so happy. I can't explain it, I Just love it so much. The expressive marks you can make, the deep colors you can mix, the feelings you can air out. I'm picking up some new paint cause I'm running low and my ld ones ae so so cheap, these are like low end of good qulity. But I feel so happy. I might be starting an art degree soon too, but to get accepted I got to make a killer portfolio.

I was advised to send an application for a compressed education that would get me a CNA certification (before I consider whether I would be able or want to go for higher education within healthcare). It seems like such a perfect fit for me.
However I found out that they only have 5 spots for women (it's mostly to get men into healthcare which like ok great but there are so many women who would benefit from this? five spots??) and there's already around 15 applied so I'm getting really worried that I'm not going to get it.
I don't know if anyone here reading this believes in positive thoughts making a difference but if you do then cross your fingers for me basically.

For the first time in my life I can devote it to something I'm actually in love with. My parents are proud of me too for finally giving school a chance. I haven't felt this good about life in a long long time.. 2 months of drawing and painting my heart out, visiting interesting places to do studies and going to art museums!
