Oh my goodness, I love kittens so much. I also love seeing my cats become a mama, though that hasn't happened since I was a kid. I hope they're all heathy and ok. <3 Get your cat spayed, nonnie

My bunny always looks so comfy it makes me comfy too
I’m glad you’re here nonny
Be proud. Let’s both keep at it yeah?
Thank you nonnies, I know how lucky I am. I was checking FaceBook earlier and saw all the screenshots he'd posted from the game with cute lil captions and it set me off crying all over again. I won the stepfather lottery with this dork.>>870800
I know this sounds cliché and cheesy but that really is an achievement. I've been there myself and learning to celebrate the small victories was actually quite healing for me. Take things at your pace, celebrate those baby steps and never compare yourself to others. Godspeed, nonny
. I hope you climb out of that rut.

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!!! I hated smiling so much before, and outside of very meticulously curated and filtered selfies, I hated photos being taken of me. This weekend I went out with friends and I looked back on the photos and realized how dang cute my smile is! I'm happy we realized this heh.>>872369
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.
But it feels really good to study at my own pace, and to be engaged in a seemingly "boring" subject
Sorry for late reply nonnie

post may be a bit too bitterpositive but I went biking with my bf the other day and we biked for 40km/25 miles, it got so hard at the end that i cried and just felt weak

My mother's a narc too and finally admitting it was a big step towards healing for me. Therapy isn't easy (especially if your mother is anything like mine and trained you to be her attack dog) but it is so, so worth it. Good luck, anon! I wish you all the best.>>877054
I feel you, anon. I'm currently getting fit again after an illness and I biked and did weights this morning and I'm still feeling sore now, but the pain is spurring me on. I want to get back to normal. Good luck, nonny
. Remember not to skip your rest days though, I know how tempting that is from personal experience and trust me it's never worth it. Also remember that slow progress is still progress!
i'm taking it slow, stopped snacking, eating a bit less, sports once or twice a week… i'll get there!
i'm looking into going to therapy but i need to find the right person, good luck to you too

I ordered a super limited will never be produced ever again wooden charm from an artist I used to have small talks years ago on a MMO forum, she doesn't know it's me but we're probably going to meet for the hand delivery, I don't dare to tell her. Also the charm is about her super cute OC I fell in love with a year ago when I was looking at her page so I'm glad I bought it. It's just so nice

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'm finally not hating the person I see in the mirror for once.

I don't eat any junk food or drink alcohol or soda, just normal, mostly vegetarian food that is very high in protein. I eat about every 3-4 hours on a good day, small but balanced portions, I also never eat out mostly because I live in bumfucknowhere.>>878616

Thanks, I sorta did. Here's a cool lady. If you're on a laptop, my tip is to always scroll down slowly and keep eyes to the right, focus on the text. I often miss seeing it altogether as I'll hide new board images as a precaution. The rare time I've been sloppy, I've only seen cp out of the corner of my eye, enough to clock what it is, but no details.

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.

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.

This post made me a little emotional. I hope you and your mom are having a great life now, nonna.
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.

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.

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 might take a walk later today to enjoy the nice weather.

Me and my fiancè just assembled our new bed today, and it's a queen sized one. It's so spacious and sturdy and the foam mattress doesn't hurt our backs because it doesn't have broken springs!! It's so comfortable, I'm in heaven. It fits me, him and the cat without the need for us to fight over space. I'm so grateful for our new bed
me neither anon but you'll get through it. it wasn't that bad. the surgery itself will take 15-20min max. I was able to go home the same day, just a few hours later.
the thing though is, online and at the clinic they told me I will be fit again in about 3 days. that was not the case. it took me 2 weeks to recover because I was "in a rush" to get better.
please please rest, listen to your body and be careful when showering. I wish you all the best, you won't regret it as >>898868

I was talking to my cousin last night about the vegan char siu my mom once brought home and cooked and he brought some home tonight!! We’re not vegan but I loooove the texture of vegan meat. Not the kind thats kinda like a fishball texture either. I don’t know how to describe it but it’s so damn fucking good. I’m pretty meh on real meat but I eat it because it’s convenient to not hole myself into a single dietary restriction but FUCKKK this fake meat is so god damn good!! I’m so happy I get to eat it tonight hehe

Nonas my boyfriend and I broke up tonight and I feel so free!!!!! It’s been a long time coming, it was amicable, and I’m just so excited to single again after being in a relationship that felt more like a friendship than anything. Having no obligations to a scrote, no matter how okay, is glorious.

Congrats anon! I dare say I know that feeling. Like, finally it's just me and myself again.
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.
So now that I’m looking at them after brushing them properly, they really look nice.

ty and i love those too
Sorry anon, he bought it from a restaurant in Chinatown and I can't seem to find the an image of the one my mom brought home (and can't remember the name either). I think the taste is a little strong, since it's the sauce carrying most of the flavor with none of the meatiness to balance that out, but it doesn't really bother me. I hope you may find some! I think
the one we had was made out of seitan but I'm not 100% sure.

Oh my god I love my Planned Parenthood. Even after calling since June to get an appointment, then rescheduling after someone locked themselves in the bathroom, and then panicking after the receptionist told me I'd have to pay like $500 for an implant replacement.. turns out my poor ass didn't have to pay a penny. Bless those nice doctors! Five more years of no babies, woooo

No biggie, anon, thanks for the reply! Actually after I posted I went on a google journey and found that there's going to be Chinese restaurant opening soon that has a vegan char siu dish, pic related. So excited!
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.

Was watching Deep Space Nine just now and there's a female alien who shows up with her sons. She explains that "men are far too emotional to be leaders. They're constantly fighting among themselves– it's their favorite thing to do." And all the male characters just stand there, annoyed.

I've done like 4 mock tests so far and with each one I get slightly better, even if by a point. This makes me so hopeful! I think I can actually get in when I do the real deal! It feels so good to actually see the results, it motivates me a lot. Here's to getting better every day, in every way

I feel like my partner is an alien, he's just so unlike any person I've ever met. I can't believe it's been six years and it's only gotten better and better. This is never what I expected for myself, especially not from a man. I don't know how I got so lucky. It's like the world is repaying me for growing up with abusive druggie psychopaths. Life is so stable and peaceful and fun. No mind games, no distrust, just two people spending every moment they possibly can together. Working jobs we love to build a beautiful future together. Taking care of our little kitties. This is worth all the hard shit.
I recently went on my first solo trip and had a fantastic time. I’ve always been kind of a (contented) loner so I don’t know why it took this long, just prioritizing other people I guess. It was great taking everything at my own pace and not feeling guilty for exploring things that were most interesting to me. >>922738

Today I engaged in one of my hobbies (fashion dolls) after a long period of not being able to (aside from some minor tweaks) and I'm almost finished with some customizing I wanted to do! It feels so fulfilling as well. I mean, I was studying and when I wanted to unwind I'd just play some vidyas, so it wasn't very satisfying, just relaxing. It's nice to actually craft something and such.
I am so happy, I really like how my little gals are looking so far, and especially how they look together. One of them had been friendless for so long lol
Hopefully I'll be able to sew for them again!
Picrel is not mine but they are also blythes
Happy for you nonnie

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!!!

Hell yeah anon. I used to feel bad about doing that, like I was babying myself so I just had to suck it up and deal with all the nasty shit like throws at me, but it really wears you down. Nothing wrong with avoiding bad shit and toxic
people that you can avoid. Build yourself up and be comfortable and happy in life, and I think you'll have a good solid foundation to fall back on when it comes time to deal with shitty stuff that you can't avoid.>>937200

Franklin NJ; it has the highest concentration of different types of minerals found anywhere in the world ~2 dozen minerals that are completely unique to the area. A lot of them are florescent which makes it even cooler. New Jersey surprisingly has a ton of great places to go rockhounding and even some extremely accessible fossil hunting sites!

I'd definitely recommend visiting Franklin if you're ever in the area!

I hope that things will work out for you. I reconnected with a friend a few years ago after dropping her from my life for a few years over something I barely remember, but after we reconnected, things have gotten much better in our lives. She did not hurt me, but I think we have both grown in many positive ways since we parted ways, and now we grow together and encourage each other to become the best versions of ourselves. I hope that this will be the same for you and your friend!

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.

I posted earlier this month that I ordered my best friend’s birthday gift and paid out the ass for international shipping and it got here so much faster than I expected given covid delays, AND!!! It made it here safe and sound! I got her a ceramic tea set and just double checked that there were no chips, cracks, or anything broken and everything is fine! I’m SO SO SOOO excited to give this to her heh. I don’t know what she’s gonna expect when I give her this giant fucking box hahaha. I’m gonna get her matching tea too just because it pairs so well with the gift! UGHHH I want her birthday to come already so we can celebrate and I can give this to her!! I’M SO EXCITED NONNIES!!!
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'm so happy your daughter has you, I'm sure she's going to grow up to be a wonderful person from all the love. Parents, and mothers especially, are such a powerful force of good in this world.

A (relatively obscure) movie that I love was finally added to a streaming service, so now I get to see it in 1080p as opposed to the old 480p torrent from like 2008. It's amazing seeing it in that quality for the first time.

Everything is going right for me lately. Ever since covid hit, it's been extremely difficult for me to meet new people, but about a month ago I got a new job and made a friend unlike any I'll ever make again. Like, it really feels like I was destined to meet them, that kind of bond. 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.

We've known each other for almost a year now and I can't believe that we are still having so much fun together. When we first met I was a hot mess trying to work things out. Now I'm just a regular mess!

I'm going to work my ass off and I'll pay my debts, I'll pay for therapy, I'll have money for Christmas and I'll finally be able to start my dream business once I'm a bit more stable financially. I feel like I can do it anons, I really do. I'm done being scared of everything.
I am so proud of you! Keep that energy nonny
, wishing you all the best!

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.

Someone spontaneously complimented my voice yesterday and it felt so good! I've been working on it and it's so rewarding to know it's improved to the point at least one person thinks I have a great voice.
Also I like when my dumb jokes end up on the Lolcow caps thread kek
What do you mean you've been working on it?
I have a deep voice and trouble talking clearly so I'm interested

I have tried a few self help programs and YouTube videos, picrel is my favorite so far, you can get it on Audible. I like it because it's geared towards improving your speaking voice rather than singing. Your voice can get better nona! Good luck! i know he looks like a smarmy bastard but I promise he has a lot of good tips!

I've stopped putting on makeup and now I only care about looking clean & healthy
I don't feel bad about anything about me and I'm just so happy to be at peace with my body & looks, I'm not prettier than I was before but I do feel beautiful now
I wish you the same thing nonnitas, hope you can fight your insecurities and embrace your body
Love you anon.
I haven't been doing any makeup at all for like 4 or 5 years, but I still feel a bit weird when I have to take a picture or record myself.
I hope to be as confident as you one day.

I love my cat so much and Im so sure I've never loved an animal this much even if he likes chasing my legs when i go up my bed or wakes me up at 3 am because he's fucking hungry. I was put on antidepressants last year and adopting him helped even more because of how I was able to be more responsible. I get up because of him and I lift weights for him.
I love my orange garfield looking baby.

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. One of the newest reviews said they saw on old faces back so I'm hoping they were able to bring back whatever of the old staff they could!

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!!
I have this pair of blades from 2000, they're black with cute yellow, red and green details and they're called BLADERUNNERS
and I love them.

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!
Hell yeah anon!>>975763
This is so great nonnie
. I'm so glad to hear it! I wish you many more happy days with your boyfriend!
That’s so amazing nonna! How did you improve to such a degree? And what made you want to learn?
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.
That's literally my dream nonny
, to work a relaxed mediocre job, have tons of free time and just enough money to buy cute clothes and accessories.

I was feeling kinda down because none of my old friends invited me to their new year party (nor wanted to plan something with me), and just today I received an invitation from a ex coworker. When I confirmed she answered "OMG I'm so so happy!", it feels AMAZING knowing that someone actively wants to see me.

Thanks so much, nonnas!
I am aiming to get the JLPT N2 certificate, and I know I'll have to work hard because I forgot a lot of things from the time I got my N3 one, so I have to review a lot of the past things I studied - but I am feeling motivated! Hope is indeed amazing. I hope both of all are also happy in the path you've chosen or will choose!>>978966
I am completely there with you, anon. I live on the southern hemisphere so it's currently hot here, but I always think about how lucky I am doing the cold weather. Even during the hot weather, just the fact that I have a bed, a roof, food on the table. I am so grateful to my parents for providing for me still, and that my family have enough money to keep us all afloat and comfortable.

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. >>979781
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. I mostly just want to get good enough to just read my mangos and other dumb shit now. >>980465
That's so cute!! I hope you two will get to be together soon!

If you're okay with saying it, what are you studying it? I hope you'll have lots of fun at your university! I miss my university days so much.>>982367
Congrats nonna! I hope your wedding will be beautiful and fun and surrounded with great friends and family. In regards to applying for jobs, whenever I feel underqualified or nevous, I think of an article I read that said men will apply to jobs they are sorely underqualified for meanwhile women will only apply to jobs where they meet all or the majority of the qualifications listed. Apply away! Job hunting is never ever fun or easy, nor are rejections a reflection on you or what you are lacking! Always remember that. I'm sure you'll find where you need to go, best of luck with everything!

The other day I went for a walk with my dog and I took a different route, it was a quite and pretty nice neighbourhood and there was this house with a little yard that had a rabbit in it! I thought it was a statue at first but then it moved and it even got close to the fence to smell my dog. I was surprised it wasn't scared of dogs at all. So yeah I guess my dog now has a bunny friend and I think it's very cute. Picrel isn't my picture but the bunny looked exactly like that. I will go visit the bunny friend again.

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.

May your future be full of fun outings, late night bitchings, and irreplacable companionship!I feel like I've been put on a watch list just by trying to find these images kek

I hope things will only continue to go up from here! Best of luck at your new job! I hope your coworkers are nice and your work is easy.
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!

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!
I love you. I'm gonna bring vegan shepherds pie
and lots of herbal tea.

I got my bf the perfect Christmas gift (picrel). My boyfriend is super into computers and Feynman is one of his favorite thinkers of all time. I don't think he even knows that Feynman wrote a textbook on computation and I can't wait to see his face opens it!!!

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."

This is the first year as an adult that I feel really excited for Christmas. Not because of getting gifts, but because this year I have put so much effort and thought into all the gifts I am giving and I can't wait for my loved ones to unwrap them and be happy and excited about the things I got them.

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.

My favorite manhwa updated today!!!! I've been waiting for it for MONTHS now and I'm so happy it's back.
I hope everyone enjoys their gifts and you’ll get some good ones too!! I’m so excited to see my friends and give them their presents!!! My family doesn’t celebrate and my parents will actually be working tomorrow so it’ll just be me, my brother, and the dog, and will probably just feel like another day, but I bought ingredients to make us some delicious mac and cheese so there’s that at least!
May your Christmases be filled with lots of warm, delicious food and good company. Love you nonnies ♥

Had a nice Christmas, although not a lot people were there is was very pleasant and chill. The weather was warm enough to wear a skirt and sweater. I received two similar looking mushroom mugs from family and some handmade items. Going to go home and spend the rest of the night taking a nice bath and having some wine with a movie.
Even if you were alone this Christmas, please take care and treat yourself, take a bath, roll a j, get yourself something nice. Take care nonas <3

Awwww, congrats. I remember getting my art featured in a YouYube video, one of my happiest days.

I LOVE MY BOYFRIEND SO MUCH! I miss him and can't wait to lay down beside him and rest against him and feel him play with my hair and protect me whilst we can both relax and bask in each other's love… I love him so much, I'm so happy with him, I don't want anyone else. Side note: today he showed me pictures of him when he was little and oh dear he was such a cute little boy. Definitely mischievous though, I'm happy to have met him as an adult, hahaha

The books thread really helped me get back into reading for the first time in years, there are so many good recommendations in there! Going to my library and picking up a nonnie
's suggestion is one of my favorite things now.

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. I love Pikachu so much and I love my best friend.

It’s snowing pretty hard right now and all the tree branches are white. Very cozy looking through a window and silent outside. I have nothing I need to do tomorrow so I think I’m gonna go for a hike in the snow when I wake up.

Update, I've lost 10 pounds since I posted this!! Went from 136 to 126. I'm 5'2" so it makes a huge difference, even my family commented on it when I went home for Christmas. Still not at my goal weight (115) but I feel sooo much better. I might actually raise my goal weight a bit since I've begun strength training and want to focus on building muscle. It feels so nice to be making progress!
nonna this is SO great!!!! I’m rooting for you!!!! >>1019579

Just started making a habit of journaling and I am loving it. Scrapbooking in stuff I find and decorating the page with shitty little doodles after a long ramble session is the highlight of my day. Why didn't I start doing this sooner.
I would do this if my mum didn't wander into my room and look through my stuff for my own safety kek
You won't regret it, it's like self therapy, great for introspecting, and you can look back on your diaries in about 5 years and be like "haha i was such a crazy bitch then" or "that was a good day". Good luck with the journals McNonna
Happy for you nona! I started journalling a few years ago in college and it's still one of my favorite hobbies. When I write down my bad thoughts it makes me feel like they're leaving my body and I'm physically trapping them on the page, so I feel a lot better after venting in my journal as opposed to, idk making a vent post on here where I could go on in circles forever.
It's a nice way to save ticket stubs or other things to remind you of what happened today, or to finally have a place to put in cute stickers and stuff. I started writing with the intent of reading back on my journals when I'm old and bedridden, my favorite entries (that I tend to skip because they're boring to write lol) are about the days where nothing happens at all. I like slice of life media so I know I'd like to read back on even my most mundane days lol.

I feel so pumped right now I was picking which photo of my paintings to post on facebook and looking at them I got the will to paint right now so I started painting, and before I did that I was studying for school even though I just got back from college (usually when I return I lie down exhausted and do nothing) and now while my layer of paint is drying I'm studying again, also my roommate returned from home so I'm not all alone in my room and I talked to her a bit and I feel good and I feel like doing so many things and I hope that continues because for the last year I have had no will to do anything, I started doing worse in school, I've been crying for no reason at all and couldn't get out of bed in the morning. I know just because I'm feeling good right now doesn't mean it will continue to be like that, and I don't know what exactly I did that made me feel better or if my brain just decided to feel better on its own, and thank you to the anon who posted this swan photo, I'm painting it and my other roommate is at work right now and she loves swans and I can't wait until she comes back and sees it I just know she is going to hug me. And sorry for the long sentences I don't really care about language I just say what I mean without care for syntax or interpunction and I hope you anons have a nice day.

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!

They're even cheaper now! I bought them for $99 but thankfully they allowed a price adjustment kek. >>1028808
They look even more awesome when I'm wearing them. They felt more cutesy to me in the stock photos but I feel like a badass when I wear them out kek. I love them so much. I think they would even wear really nice with long skirts in the fall!

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!
Thank you nonnie
you inspired me to finally order this game and give it a shot. Wish me luck
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!!
Today an elderly man (he was walking with a cane too) dropped his groceries as he was walking out of the store so I helped him pick it up and he looked so so grateful he thanked me like three times, how sweet is that it warmed my heart>>1033970

Good for you nonna! Imo retail can be pretty fun but it wears off quickly, what made you quit yours? I hope you can start doing something you actually like soon ♥
(I actually want to be my own boss, but not sure enough in the direction I want)
I worked at a giant American grocery chain, and I was too tall to work the solitary position for 8 hours in a cooler by myself. The team had plenty of people capable of doing it, but they chose someone with a hip injury for that job.
I also got reprimanded for being really sick with Covid, and that was it for me. They don’t care about employee OR customer safety by pressuring me to return during an infectious period.
Fuck a job, really. Fuck a job indeed. There are so many places that actually lookout for the “essential workers” and it was not happening there.

Hey nonnies….there’s something I’d really like to happen in the next two weeks. It’s not impossible at all but I really need it. Pray for me if you can. Or keep me in your thoughts. Or I don’t know. I just need this one thing. I’ll behave afterwards. I promise. I’ll get my shit together.

I'm so in love. He's a sweetheart, today I was feeling a bit shit about my art and he told me I have no reason to be insecure and I have plenty of talent. He says sweet things like that all the time ♥ We'll be able to see each other more in the future and I can't wait! I didn't really like him at first (he came off a bit crass) but he's really grown on me, and in my experience those are the best people! It's not often I feel comfortable around someone so to have someone I can actually chill and be myself with feels like a god's send. I truly hope our relationship goes somewhere>>1044911

It really doesn't matter if things are imperfect. If you have a very cluttered house you have to thoroughly clean due to depression, and piles of missing assignments, unanswered messages, unmet personal goals, jobs waiting to be applied to, a fridge waiting to be filled, etc etc… It still doesn't matter! You don't have to have everything together, you can still be a good and successful human. You can be everything at once! I don't know properly how to express myself, I just know what I mean and especially that it's right. I'm going to class tomorrow and I have a horrible week of depressive habits behind me. In those few days I've amassed an intimidating backlog of important responsibilities as well as self-neglect. And yet! It doesn't matter. I'm going to go to school tomorrow, and everything will be fine. No matter what happens, nothing can break my spirit. Life is not about those puny problems. They can be solved easily, unless you're so overwhelmed with worry over them that it paralyses you. But once you stop caring about them and instead care about what is true: that you're alive, that you only have the present, that it's only you who you have, that the sun shines, that you breathe air, and that you can do anything and it really doesn't matter– then you can really have a lovely fulfilling life! I'm proud of myself for managing to let go so much. To be grateful for what is certain and to see everything around me as something passing by, as an illusion, really. Knowing that I am the entire universe expressing itself through one of the many little human beings and other vessels on earth, is such a relief. It's okay that I was becoming overwhelmed or that traumatic events were triggered, and that I wasn't so good to myself. It's okay because it can only harm me as much as I fear it. And there's good around me as well as within me, so truly why do I even fear?? Just take it one step at a time, enjoy every part of it, and know that no matter what, things are good and fine. Unironically be like this little animal in the picture… chill!!! and allow yourself too. also I've written a letter to myself, a script if you will, to help me remember and stay on track. I wrote it from my perspective and in it I promise to accept that today is a wonderful day, and that I am fulfilled, and that I have what I need. And it helps me to push away the distractions that blind me from the perfect dream life I truly do lead. Even if you don't believe me, it really doesn't matter. just wanted to share

I have been reading in bed recently and it is my favorite thing to do. On the weekends, I spend as much time as I want reading in bed and enjoying the light coming in from my window. My room is small but I have a south facing window so weather it's cloudy or sunny, my whole room gets lit up and I love basking in natural light. On weekdays, I'll maybe only have like 15-30 min before my bedtime but I will still try to squeeze in a bit of reading.
I'll tuck myself in like picrel, with my favorite teddy bear resting on me while tucked into the covers. Whenever I'm reading in bed, I always think that I feel like one of those really well put together adults like "look at me, I come home from my comfy 9-5 job, made a delicious dinner, and now I'm reading before bed to relax" sort of things kek. I enjoy it though, and I've been enjoying the books I've been reading too! An anon posted in another thread about how if an adult read for just one hour everyday they could get through like 52 books a year and it made me think "wow I should finally get off my ass and start reading again" so here I am.
Recommend me books nonnies! Any kind is okay, preferably if I can get it on libgen since I read on my kindle.

Yuzuru Hanyu makes me so happy. I found him when he blew up on tumblr a long time ago and then I closely followed him between 2014 and 2018, between the olympics and other competitions. More than just thinking he's cute and enjoying watching his skating and learning about how figure skating works, I went to study abroad in Japan and my host mom found out that I was a big fan of him. On Christmas, about a week before my exchange program was over, she gave me a present. I opened up one end and saw that it was a book and I thought it was a bible because my host mom is a Christian and I thought "not my thing, but I love my host mom so I will still cherish this." It was Yuzuru's autobiography. I didn't mean to cry but I did. I was speaking to someone about how I was trying to find his book but couldn't, and she must've overheard and got it for me.
When I think of Yuzuru, I also think of that moment and my host mom. I can't think of him and not also think of my time with my host mom. I think his SP was beautiful last night, and it made me miss my host mom a lot.
But I do still think he's very cute and very handsome and I will not apologize for my fangirling!!! A little sad he most likely will not take home gold but I still love watching him skate

I'm finally back in touch with my favourite Grandma and it makes me so happy. We both love art, fashion, history, medicine and she made a huge impact on my future by calling CPS and I'm just so happy to have a family member talking to me.
I have a serious fear of aging but all the badass older women I know in my life make it so much easier. I just love them all!
This is so dumb but I’ve always fantasised about having an online best friend so I could send her parcels and surprise gifts. There would be useful gifts, like stuff she wants for hobbies or for practicality, or dumb little references to things she likes.
Anyway I’m glad you got this. I hope you stay good friends.
Nta, be my pen pal! I have another nonnie
pen pal but I think she might be a little busy

Two years ago I got fired from my job after attempting to unionize. I got the department of labor involved and have been in a legal battle ever since. Finally got the verdict today and the judge decided in my favor so they owe me two years of back pay(I've been living off my savings) and they have to give me my job back and tell all the employees how they broke the law (they did more then just fire me illegally to prevent unionizing) I'm so happy that things actually worked out, and glad I didn't give up when everyone told me I was stupid for going against them and I was going to lose! Can't wait to go back and try to unionize again!
My manager told me that I was doing a great job and that she will renew my job contract for 6 more months. Given how cursed I was as soon as I started looking for my very first job it feels like a miracle.>>1058840
That must have been so stressful, I'm glad for you that things worked out.

Had the shittiest day, came back home to unwind playing a game and got invited by complete strangers to do a raid activity; normally I'd refuse but decided to give it a shot and I got to spend a few hours trying to get through the encounters with the nicest, most patient people, effectively distracting me from all the bad thoughts. "Gaming community" can be trash but moments like this make the hobby worth the time
Cute. I'm jealous nonnie

I can't wait for school to start again. I took a gap year but I feel so shitty about it, I had a job as a cashier for half a year but it's just so demotivating when doing it 35 hours a week. I actually love learning when it's something I'm interested in and I'm going to the college of my dreams in half a year, I can't wait! I feel so happy I finally have a path in life, or something resembling it ♥ It's weird, sometimes I want to die and sometimes I feel like the luckiest person in the world. I feel like some very good and very bad things will happen this year, but I can't wait to see where the future takes me. I've never been to college, it's not full time so I'm sure I can handle it alright, I feel really really good about it

I love watching the women's Olympic events. They are so cool and strong. I love when the medal-winners cry with pride for all their hard work.
That's so exciting, anon. I hope you enjoy university! I think your genuine interest in attending will help you so much, it will be so motivating.
What do you want to learn about?
Have fun nonna!! I was very depressed and in hindsight, surrounded by many shitty people in college, but it was 4 years of crazy fun shit that I would never go back and change. I met bad people, but also met people that I am still good friends with today, and many people who continuously lent me a helping hand despite how god awful I was because of my mental illness. I still email one of my most beloved professors to this day.
I hope you'll meet lots of cool people and make amazing friendships! Befriend your professors and visit them during their office hours! Many of them really want you to succeed. Join clubs too if you have the time/your school is allowing it, I met many of my friends this way. Good luck! I wish you the absolute best!

I have no more eczema! Actually, I don't even really know when my eczema went away… it just did one day! I wasn't born with it but I starting having eczema patches appear on my hands (particularly around my fingers) in high school. I remember waking up to scratching myself. It was so painful, and even at its best I still had one or two persisent small patches that seemed to migrate between finger to finger.
I don't know what finally solved it but I haven't had any eczema patches come back in over a year.

I posted it in the bunker thread, but I got to see Billie Eilish this past weekend! I also made friends with a random girl I was on line with kek.
It was my first time seeing a major pop artist and I had fun screaming out the lyrics and dancing around!! I'm not really that fond of her new album and where her music is going, but if she releases more music in the future that I like, I'd really like to see her live again. The vibe of her concert was so fun, I really enjoyed myself.
Ohhh, I'm so jealous of you nonnie

Being a NEET with my also NEET best friend and living together is honestly the most fun I've had in years. We do almost everything together and I love it.

Just broke off one of the most toxic friendships of my life and I feel fucking incredible. She ofc used my friends number to blew up my phone and tried to say that I was the shitty one all along (even though she treated me like garbage for YEARS), and I left her on read, just like she did to me whenever she was giving me the silent treatment.
A message like that would usually send me spiralling but this time I felt absolutely nothing. She was lashing out and trying her hardest to take back control of the situation and make it seem like SHE was the one who wanted to end it. Tbh anons it did give me a bit of a rush to see the person who held so much power over me having a full-blown tantrum. I just feel totally at peace, like a massive weight has been lifted off my shoulders and I can finally breathe again!!!

i think i'm finally making a tiny bit of progress on my quest to learn how to hula hoop. it's not much but it doesn't drop after 5 spins around my waist. i think it stays up for like 10 spins now? also my hoop is so pretty (picrel) and i love how it looks.

ayrt, yeah it's crazy hard for me! i started with one of those massage hoops that are like 1.5 kgs and it was wayyy too heavy for me, my hipbones weren't bruised but the fat? muscle? was super sore and it just kept getting worse. so i returned that one and bought the blue one in the pic i posted. i just made wicked progress though while watching some youtube videos! i ended up hooping for 30-40 minutes and of course i kept dropping the hoop but i managed to keep it going for almost 30 seconds and maybe more at a time! i feel so good about myself now, i never had that "practicing until you get good at it" learning curve because my parents never encouraged me to try anything, so this feels amazing.>>1069603
i think for me the secret is putting the feet apart and bending the knees so your hips are more flexible and can move more freely? there are tons of beginner youtube videos though and maybe a different strategy works better for you. also you need to buy a proper hoop for adults since your hoop, when placed in front of you, should reach approximately up to your belly button. i'm 160 cm and mine is 95 cm in diameter.
for reference, i started practicing a week ago and have been using the lighter hoop for four days now.

Based Texas. I'm certain this will save some children's lives. This is how it should be in every country.
conservative evangelical politicians hating trannies is a distraction for them trying to take womens rights away, it's surface level fluff to try and skirt peoples support who wouldn't usually be on their side. they have been doing this for ages and i don't know why you people always fall for it. they hate biological women or pretty much any group that isn't an old rich white male so how can you call these turds based? greg abbott is not a terf

Politicians can have several views at once without being completely good or completely bad.>greg abbott is not a terf ally he's a monster whos caused suffering to millions of people, especially biological women
What is he doing exactly?
Why do you assume I'm calling the politician based and not the act of making it illegal for children to be trannies
Why do you assume I think he's a terf
I honestly don't give a fuck about Gregg and I'm not even American
basically what >>1069916
said any southern republican politician is likely to be regressive when it comes to abortion rights and healthcare for women, so if you're an amerifag they're not your friend. they also hate workers rights, livable wages, and environmental protections, so if you have any progressive worldviews at all outside of your views on trannies then you probably shouldn't be calling them based, they hoard millions of dollars for themselves every year from their shoddy practices and only care about themselves.
abbott in particular is also really repugnant for the reason that he limited how much people could sue if an accident disabled them. despite receiving a stipend every year for the accident that caused him to be paralyzed, he won't allow people the same provisions. him and ted cruz are sociopathic wastes of space

I’ve officially saved up $10,000 and I’m so proud nonnies. My friends are all very rich and get that much from their parents if they just ask for it but I’m proud that I saved that all up by myself. Might not seem like much but I did it while studying at university and working part time. So for me it feels like a huge amount of money and I’m proud of myself.
Proud of you, nonnie
! I've been in a similar situation when I used to study, so I totally understand this! Def a reason to celebrate yourself!
$10k is no small amount at all!! I'm so so so proud of you nonnie
! Keep that momentum going!
Studying and working at the same time must not have been easy at all, be proud of yourselves, nonnas! Also, rich-nonna, just a gentle reminder: don't tell just anyone about your savings.
Love you nonnie

My mom is finally making six figures and i’m so proud of her because she’s worked so hard to get where she is and it all finally paid off. She’s the best mom ever and I love her so much and i’m happy she doesn’t have to worry about finances anymore like when I was little, I remember budgeting for food and not being able to buy a lot of non essential things because she was making minimum wage due to us being immigrants and her not speaking the language and other circumstances. I’m just so over the moon about the fact that she can finally treat herself to anything she wants and not worry about if she can afford it. She really inspires me to do better in life in general.
That's so amazing nonny

I started a diet and I am slowly losing weight without losing my sanity. I am happy to see the number on the scale dropping, but even happier knowing that I still feel like my good, happy self. I did not have to deprive myself of a yummy snack or pastry to achieve this. I did not have to force myself to eat pathetically small portions and leave myself hungry and obsessed with when my next meal was to achieve this. I am not the person I was years ago, and I hope to continue and do right by myself, both mentally and physically.

I'm trying to lose 35-40 pounds and go back to my pre-sedentary weight by August through excerise and yoga. (It's 6 months so I know it's very doable and won't give me health risks). I can't do push ups or situps, but I CAN DO LEG LIFTS!!! And to think that freshman year I couldn't hold them in place for 1 minute. I WANT TO BE FIT, I WILL BE FIT AND BE ABLE TO HIKE AGAIN.>>1082552
Share your secrets oh wise anon
Maybe I should clarify that I've only been at it for 2 weeks before I get anyone's hopes up kek. But I do believe for sure that I've dropped weight (a little under 2lbs) because I have an unfortunate habit of weighing myself pretty frequently and the number on the scale as consistently been dropping.
It's nothing special besides being more conscious of what I eat, planning out what I eat ahead of time (including snacks!, usually a quick rundown in the morning in my head) and estimating the calories based on that. I'm probably doing it in a really janky way where I can easily screw up by not estimating correctly, but its been working so far! I try to overestimate if anything. I don't use an app to track calories because I quickly become very obsessive, especially if I can see the numbers. I've been pivoting towards much more healthy food choices where I can fit them in (I live with family and everyone eats terrible and does not want to change) and just being kinder with myself. Compromising with myself, holding myself responsible, and learning how to have self discipline with myself without letting myself fly off the rails as is what often happens. I'm still learning how to stay in this middle ground but things are going smoothly right now so I hope I'll be able to keep it up in the long term. I am also in a relatively good place in my life right now so that probably helps me mentally a lot too lol.
I've gone from obsessive calorie counting to giving up and doing whatever to intermittent fasting to where I am now. IF just isn't for me because it is really not that hard for me to eat all of my days calories in one sitting if I'm given free reign kek. Also I've found that hunger from fasting prompts me to carelessly overeat because I'm so hungry when I do get to eat.>>1082665
Anon that's awesome!! I also recommend checking out Hybrid Calisthenics videos on progressively working your way up to an exercise! If you can do leg lifts, you're well on your way to sit ups! I want to be able to do them too. I have a terribly weak core that results in a lot of back pain. I was doing bodyweight workouts but now I use ring fit to make things more exciting for my pea brain lol. I love doing yoga on days I'm too tired to work out. Becoming more flexible is great!
In the future I'd love to start lifting. Great way to work out, building up muscle means a higher tdee, etc… but also it's just so fucking cool!

It's my dog's 18th birthday!! The big 1-8! She's slowed down considerably and is not much one for toys… or walks… and will maybe only accept cuddles under very certain conditions, but she still eagerly awaits her food everyday. Her favorite treat is only just coming into season but I haven't seen any good ones in the super market (alphonso mango), so instead I'm gonna be buying her some gouda cheese (her favorite of them all) for her to enjoy.
I feel so lucky and blessed to have had her for this long. Through the ups and downs, she is the light of my life. I have many regrets but it's useless to dwell on them. Every passing day is a blessing and I'm so happy to hear her little feet stomping around (even if I know it means she just peed somewhere she wasn't supposed to and now I have to go clean it up kek).

I went on a night walk in the park the other day with my boyfriend and we found TOADS. They were so cute and I kept finding so many. I had never picked one up before until then and their bellies are so fucking smooth and nice. I love their strong little arms and they made really cute croaks. We made sure to be really careful not to step on any since we had a flashlight with us. It was such a pleasant surprise.

Yess kek she loooves fruit! We bought her one of those cheese sampler plates and let her try all the different cheeses to see which one she liked best, but for fruit she will usually bark when she wants to try whatever we're eating. She won't bark if she's not interested though. I know dogs live beings with preferences but it's still so funny to think about! She doesn't get fed human food otherwise and shows no interest in any when I let her smell my dinner or snacks (sniffs and walks away).>>1089015

I don't know if manifestation is real, but I feel like I've manifested the person I've wanted to become for a long time. I wanted to be someone who wakes up early and basks in the morning light, someone who works out regularly and takes care of her body and mind, someone who just enjoys life and all that it has to offer, and now I am that person. It feels so weird to remember thinking "I wish I was the type of person to (do/enjoy xyz thing)" and then after a while I am that person. Is this manifestation? I don't know kek.

Picrel! It's the JBL Flip 5, it's a bit pricey but totally worth it! The noise doesn't go through walls either, my parent's room is next to mine and I asked them if it annoys them, they said they never noticed. So no worries about annoying your neighbors either lol.

Nonnies, I got accepted into my uni's mortuary science program after leaving my previous major that my parents forced me to pursue! I've never felt so free and happy in months. I'm also optimistic that I'll beat my ADHD's ass!

I just checked all my accounts and I have almost $30k to my name. I can't believe it. A huge chunk of it is in retirement funds, some of it in investments, but other than that it's all in separate bank accounts I have. I'm not as frugal as I'd like to be but holy shit it feels fucking surreal to know I have that much money to my name. It feels good to know I have some semblance of a safety net for me and my family.

I think It's wonderful younger generations are more encouraged to get into the arts and that there are so many easily accessible resources out there to learn now. When I was a child I loved art and wanted to learn, but felt like I had no natural talent or skill and face discouragement and ridicule for trying from others. So I quickly stopped drawing even for fun or trying to pursue any kinds of artistic endeavors. But it warms my heart to see so many young people getting into art now and using it to express themselves and have fun.

Today feels really good and warm even though the ground is still wet from the storm last night. Enjoying it now before it becomes balls hot.
I'm sorry for everyone having a rough time in the world right now I wish I could change it all, but just reading about happy things helps me stay positive and hopefully brings more positivity into the world, even if it changes just one person's day.
Cute sweet nonnie

I saved this post a long while ago, and I think about it often. I think I saw it around the time I broke up with my ex, and all I could think was “can this be me one day?” I’ve usually always been one always to have a crush or always yearning for a girlfriend, so it felt impossible to just be happy and content on working on myself… but right now, I’m happy! I’m happy being single! I’m the happiest I’ve ever been in life! I think I’ve grown a lot since my last relationship and I’m in no rush for another. There are times when I do wish I had a girlfriend, but I have plenty of friends to do go around town with. I hope I’ll find my lovely girlfriend one day, and that she will be as hopelessly in love with me as I will be with her. I hope that she will think I’m the sunshine, and know that I think she is the earth that I want to keep warm and loved. I hope I’ll find someone to share in my happiness.
I hope the OP of this post is doing well!

Thanks to the nonny that played the Umineko VN tracks in the Tunesday room. It's the perfect drawing music for me! The chat really lifted my mood even though I didn't talk much. I love women ♥
This makes me think… am I only worthy (or in the right place) to have a healthy relationship if I have (a lot of) friends? No matter how I try, I don't care about most of people. I wish I could find one close friend and one SO to love. It's so hard to find the kind of relationships im looking for.
I'm working on my life and self-esteem issues, but IDK if I will ever have many friends.
Thank you for the sweet reply nona ♥ Love you!>>1099670
Absolutely not! You are worthy of having a healthy relationship with people regardless of how many friends you have or don't have. You don't need to have a lot of friends if it's not for you, I don't! I said "plenty" in my post, but that differs from person to person. My best friend has a crazy number of friends that she gets along with, but for me, I have her and two others lol (and that's enough for me to go around and do fun stuff with).
I get what you mean about the types of relationships you're looking for being hard to find. I met my current friends when I was much younger and outgoing. I'm much quieter and more reserved now, and struggle to make new friends on my own. It also makes me wonder if I'll ever find a girlfriend because I don't like to put myself out there, so I hope she'll somehow find me lol.
I don't think you'll need many friends to feel fulfilled. Even just one person who you click really well with is all that matters! I hope that you'll continue to work on yourself and become a person that you're happy to be, and that you'll find yourself with a small, intimate circle who loves you in the future.

One of my favorite creators is doing a Monthly class and gave away a limit number of seats for free on her patreon and I managed to get a seat! I'm very excited. I don't know how much I'll learn or if it'll be worth it, but watching this person's videos always sparks something crazy in me that makes me want to go out and build crazy stupid shit for fun. At the very least, I didn't have pay the steep $250 for the class lol.

damn, nice. that's a fucking great deal. what do they look like? estate sales are great, just sometimes a little depressing but you can find some real literal gems there. i have a similar story to tell. i just bought an (originally) $1200 kohler soaking tub, open box, for $430 yesterday. everyone please admire my sexy sleek tub. literally this tub has sex appeal it is so beautiful. i'm so psyched at the savings. i can't wait to soak in in this bitch considering how small BISQUE (should be outlawed) and positively geriatric looking my last tub was
(not my bathroom, just the same tub, it's also taller than it looks here)

I've made posts in the vent thread about having to shave my head because I was losing hair due to malnutrition. I'm posting in this thread because my hair is growing and it looks way, way healthier than it did just a few months ago! It's still a bit thin but way better looking. My pixie cut is coming back and I'm so excited. It makes me happy, nonnies. I'm feeling much better about myself and the birds outside my window are chirping up a storm. It's a good day and I hope it's the start of something better!

I worked my third shift at my new job and it was busy and fun! People have been really nice and encouraging to me. I’ve never felt so welcome at a job, and this is one of the only jobs I’ve had where I don’t even feel like going home at the end of the shift. Feelin’ pretty happy about things for once.

I SAW THEM!! I SAW MY FAVORITE GROUP!!! AND I GOT TO BE AT THE VERY FRONT!!! Nonnies I had the absolute best time of my life tonight. It was worth it sitting outside for 6 hours in chilly, windy weather. It was worth my back pain flaring up. I had so, so, so much fun tonight. I love seeing this group so much, they never disappoint. Their shows are so much fun, and while I usually get pretty close to the stage each time, this is the first time I’ve ever been at the FRONT!!! and I’m SO HAPPY!!! I’m sorry to all the people behind me for getting my hand/arm in their videos kek I don’t know if there’s etiquette about being in the front, I was just too busy having the time of my life to care.

I am happy I never looked into MLP ENG community during the days. I grew out of the show quickly when Lauren Faust left it and returned just to read the comics. They are ten times better than the actual (after-lauren) show with a lot of deep and fun storylines, especially the reflection one which is _kind of_ canon, so to speak, which I cannot explain without spoiling it. It's amazing how good the comics are, there are even separate ones about the villains.

In the past weeks, I’ve been watching a lot of documentaries about Blobs because I find them fascinating, and I’ve finally decided to purchase one so I could cultivate and make experience. Yesterday I started the process and I was so afraid of messing it up but it went fine and look how beautiful and strong she looks now ! It’s been only a day and she is growing so fast it’s amazing to see, it’s so hard to imagine that it’s only one huge cell moving so fast! I could sperg about it for hours so I will stop and I’m sorry for the godawful pictures. Also, I’m looking for names for her, if anyone has funny ideas I will greatly appreciate it !
Thank you nonnie
, Nonna is now her official name !>>1121987
This is the best question nonnie
, I will try my best to answer! The real name is Physarum polycephalum, it's a slime mold and they are only one huge cell containing several nuclei. They are supposedly a very simple organism but it is absolutely crazy the things that they can do! They can sometimes measure meters and if they are hungry they can move at 4cm per hours! They are known to be super efficient in finding the shortest path towards food and scientists made all sorts of experiments to make them solve labyrinths and combine different sources of food to create the perfect nutrition for them.
Audrey Dussutour who’s an expert on the subject proved that blobs were capable of habituation, which was a huge deal for biology. They can learn to accept something they disliked after enough exposure to it ; when they combine with another blob (yeah, they can do that) they will pass down this knowledge to the newly formed blob.
When they are somewhere without food they will dry out and just wait to be awaken by water ( like the gremlins kek). The crazy thing is that they totally regenerate during this dormance( they telomeres grow back to their initial size) and they can stay 2 years like that!
There is a funny story behind the nickname "blob", it’s because a woman in Texas found one in her garden and started freaking out when she couldn’t make it disappear with pesticide, the thing just kept on growing so she called the police and they started shooting the poor thing lol. It just kept on growing and disappeared one day. It was a rural place and nobody knew about it. A journalist ran with the story and started calling it an alien, so they gave him the surname based on the sci-fi movie “the blob” !
I bought mine on amazon (https://www.amazon.fr/Kit-culture-BLOBE-Physarum-polycephalum/dp/B09MDHC8FR/ref=pd_lpo_1?pd_rd_i=B09MDHC8FR&psc=1
