I'm working on an interesting essay for school, my desk is in front of the window so I can look out onto the snow covered trees and rooftops while the heater keeps my room nice and warm, I feel very cozy
Good luck on the macarons and have fun baking! I want a stand mixer so bad when I move out, hopefully a cute mint green one hehe. >>681610
You're living my dream anon! I hope you get an A on your essay!

today I almost told my boyfriend I loved him. Yes, I chickened out but still it's a very big thing for the emotionally withdrawn me to genuinely want to say it to a person, it's a first time I felt it!

Not something that’s happened to me but I saw this and thought I’d share it here. I’ve become less depressed over the years and more grateful for the life I’m allowed to live, but still overlook things in picrel since it’s just common everyday things to me. I want to continue to be grateful for all the comforts I’ve been afforded in my life, it makes me happy.

I went outside for a short walk with my dog and the weather is so nice. It's the perfect temperature for me (around 65F), a few clouds hanging out in the sky, the changing colors of leaves on the tree. I think I'm going to go out on a walk by myself to enjoy it (because my dog is old and doesn't like long walks lol).
Happy thanksgiving fellow burger anons! I hope you'll have a wonderful night with some nice warm food, whether it be with family, friends, or by yourself. Stay warm and well fed.

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

So recently I found out I'm 10lbs heavier than when I last weighed myself (years ago). But I'm actually okay with it.. I've been building muscle so I look pretty good and I haven't purged in months. Now I can donate blood for the first time!

happy for you anon! I need to do mine too, but keep making excuses lol.
Late answer but honestly the most ironic thing is this self-harm wasn't my most severe but it just kept bleeding quite badly despite applying pressure and all that so I had no choice but to go get help. TMI but the last few years I've usually cut down to fat so definitely on the severe scale but I've avoided the emergency room until now.>>691960
Thank you, anon. I thought I was "ok" but understood I was fucked while out in public. Had to sit down somewhere semi-private to assess the situation and had to hide my bloody hands from everyone in my pockets on my way to the nearest bathroom. Honestly I might've smelt like blood at that point. It was horrible. The doctor was so so nice to me though. I'm doing okay considering, just very drained. It's a mental addiction for me at this point sadly, it's been almost 10 years on and off now. I feel so ashamed of all the things I haven't accomplished because I'm so scared and so tired. I'm going to try my best to fight these impulses and do positive things but it's really hard.

I went out to get some lunch with a coworker and we came across this woman who was walking her shiba puppy, as soon as he saw us he got all excited, we stopped to pet him and he kept climbing our legs, he apparently loves people. We were so happy going back to work!
My room is neat so I can't really answer your question, but I like reading the room cleaning subreddit and they ALWAYS say it's because of depression. Like 90% of the posts call it a 'depression nest'.
I can't imagine letting my space get that disgusting so I guess it makes sense that there would be something wrong if you did.
My room never gets cluttered to that level but I am pretty messy in general. I guess the mess doesn't really bother me until it does, and then I clean it up and that turns into an instant mood-booster for a day or two because it's actually really nice being in a clean, tidy environment…then the cycle repeats.
I'm curious what other messy anons say. Because I do make and break promises to myself that I'm going to be tidier all the time. It's honestly probably laziness though…
If you spend all day sleeping or never go home except to sleep, then you only have to stand it for a few waking minutes a day. One of the things they do for some hoarders is make them sit and notice the mess.
That said, I've met people who are home all day and claim to be perfectly fine who I think might have been raised in squalor or something.

What made you get the reduction?
It's something that's been on my mind since I grew breasts basically. Mine are not debilitating, but things would be easier with smaller boobs clothing wise and I'd probably not have as much back pain. My husband's a bit scared of it because it's a surgery that's not 100% needed and he's basically afraid of me dying on the operating table. inb4 "He just doesn't want you to have smaller breasts" - he's a foot/leg fetishist, he doesn't give the slightest fuck about my boobs.
Luciel/707 from Mystic Messenger. I also considered Zen because he is so sweet and ai love his long hair, but his personality is too generic when compared to the weirdo Luciel.
I've loved visual novels for a long time, but until now only played galge. It's nice to be pandered to for once lol.
Nta but wondering how big your boobs were as you got it done on the NHS? Was the reason they approved it pain or body dysmorphia, or both? Was it difficult to get approved?
Sorry for all the questions.
I may still play some scrote visual novels (if they have actual good plot, likable female characters and are not too disgusting in my view), but otomes are amazing! I wish there were more titles released. I guess I should buy the already translated titles so we get more.
It also drives me insane that scrote vns get TONS of merch, like numerous figures of the heroines and there are hardly any ones of otome husbandos… this sucks!
Which otomes are your fave, anon?

Maybe it's not super positive but it is for me - I've finally pushed myself to go to therapy, found a therapist that seems to be asking just the right questions and understands me; after a few meetings of evaluation she said it might take a long time but I should be able to work through my issues - long time sounds terrifying but I'm so happy someone is taking me seriously I feel like crying ever since coming back from the session. it's been years wasted on mental illnes holding me back in every area of life, I hope this time I will be able to finally break free.

I finished my fall term with all A's! I really thought I was done for because I basically gave up toward the end and was willing to accept a B in my statistics class. I even purposely left essay questions on one of my finals blank because it was already past due anyway and I didn't care, but I guess I clutched it! Having all online classes was such a bummer. I'm taking fewer classes next term, but I'm just happy to have a break right now. Woohoo!

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

Not to be that person, I did shrooms for the first time last night and I feel like I'm still coming down off of them. But it was a really amazing experience and really helped me to break down a lot of emotional/mental walls I'd put up over the years. I feel like I finally can just speak my mind to people and say the things I always thought about them but for some reason wouldn't just tell them. Like all this time I just expected people to just read my mind and know how much I love them, care about them, how great they are & how important they are to me.
I just had this incredible outpouring of love and apprecation for all the people in my life and felt so happy that I could finally put it out there. I messaged so many people, pouring out my heart to them and rambling about how much I love them and how I feel about them. A lot of it was insane rambling, but I think they still got a lot of what I meant.
It helped me let go of so much fear & egotism, it feels like a rebirth. I'm still so tired, but I'm feeling so positive and happy.
2021 is going to be a good year.

Step outside for a minute and breathe in. Despite everything, you’ve made this far. You are incredible! A survivor! You have been through a lot, and it shows through your strength. By just being here, you are courageous. You deserve the world in your fingertips, and happiness in your golden heart! My dear farmers, no matter where you are in the world, you are loved.
After years of emotional repression caused by low-self-esteem/depression, I finally reached a breaking point, and the mask I had constructed over the years fell apart, as I sat sobbing on my bed. I told my brother about it through a sea of tears, and he was very supportive. He gave me some very good advice on the importance of self-love and the dissection of bad thoughts. That was a little over a month ago, and although there's still work to be done, I feel so much better. Today, a friend even told me that I seem like a different, better person.
Though I've been crying at least a couple of times a week and know I will continue to tear up at weird triggers for some time, I'm still amazed at how much my thought process has changed. No more petty jealousy of my best friend, no more fear of everyone laughing behind my back. It feels so great.

Going to tour a 1 bedroom apartment today! It's pet friendly and within my budget, also closer to my work. I have never lived alone, always with family or roommates. I could not have imagined living alone a few years ago. It'll give me a lot more freedom to have things how I want to. Also, I won't be totally alone since I have my dog to keep me company. Hopefully I will be settled somewhere new in the next month or so.
An anon suggested intermittent fasting to me the other week and I've only been doing it for a little over a week but I think it's done really good for me. The last time I "dieted" a few years ago, I was in the midst of depression, caught up with a stupid fuckboy and was doing everything for all the wrong reasons. I'm a lot kinder to myself this time around, and it's great.
My hunger in the morning isn't anything too bothersome and I usually drink tea or water to help satiate it. I used to get bad hunger nausea in the afternoons but now I don't. I've also been calorie counting and even bought a bathroom scale (two things that were awful for me last time and helped fueled my borderline ED tendencies), and I've been doing good on them! They're helpful tools that help me track my process in a concrete way. I've gotten used to small portions and my cravings have gone down. Last time I did this, I was thinking about food 24/7, thinking about when my next meal or snack was and was so hyperaware of every little pang of hunger. Now? I eat my regular meal, and if I want some chips, I'll let myself indulge just a little bit, then I can go back to doing whatever it is I was doing without thinking about food until I'm actually hungry again. I don't even feel the need to boredom eat anymore, even with a bag of snacks right in front of me on my desk. I've lost an inch off my waist, and it might be water weight, but an inch is an inch. I don't know what my highest quarantine weight was, but I'm currently a pound heavier than when quarantine started. While I'm not sure how much progress I've made, I think I've made some headway. I hope I can get down a little more.
I'm a lot more comfortable in my body this time around, and I don't mind not having the body of an athlete. I want my body to be strong enough that I can indulge in my favorite hobbies and not have to depend on men to do some heavy lifting, but still being soft and cute is nice too.

I'm so in love with being alive and in love with myself. I don't care if it's cringey or lame, I'm so fucking happy being able to watch the glow of the sunrise on the building across the street from my window. I feel so blessed to eat hot food and have a warm home to return to every night. I think there's so much joy to be found in my existence. I love my softness, I love my strength.
I feel like I can't say this that often because it comes off as bragging, like "hey! I'm not depressed anymore! I think my life is great!" but in reality I know my life is pretty mediocre (college degree yet still have low wage basic bitch office job, not that smart, painfully average looks) but I still enjoy it so much because… I just do. I worked hard to get out of retail and find a job that lets me have time with friends and family, I worked hard through my demons to sit around with my head empty so I can stare out my window and feel peace. I hope many others might be able to enjoy the same things I do, because I know how it feels to be on the other end of the spectrum where everyday feels like I'm trudging through a field where the mud is up to my neck and I'm two seconds away from offing myself because I'm so fucking tired of being awake and alive. I used to dwell on moments of peace and always think "this is temporary and I'm scared of when it'll end" but now all I think is… so fucking what!!! If this shit is temporary I'm gonna enjoy it 110% until it's over. I don't care if the future has shit in store for me, it's not the future yet so I'm gonna relish in all the love and peace in my life right now.
Life is good and I'm happy.
Yes!! I love it! It feels so cheesy to say things like "just appreciate the small things in life" but I think they're the parts that are so nice and fun! Little things about the world and people that get overlooked deserve attention and love too. I know I'm very fortunate to be surrounded by many good people and have supportive and loving parents, so I want to enjoy living my life as a love letter to my parents for giving me life!>>717631
Good luck anon! It might be a long and hard journey until you find a better job, but I hope you'll get there one day! I was job hunting for a little over half a year before I was finally able to get something. It was just a temp job, but I think that one job will open up many others. I'm at another office now, and despite some office politics, the people I work with are lovely. If I can do it, I think you can too anon! Don't give up, I'm cheering you on! You deserve to live a good, happy life!>>717691
Thank you anon! I changed the way I've approached a lot of things in my life and the peace and happiness came naturally after. It's hard to not feel jealous of people I know who are achieving truly great things, but I don't think there's any shame in having small goals like just living a lowkey life. Maybe it sounds really bad, but I don't think we're all meant for greatness. There's a lot of emphasis on being the next CEO of a multi billion dollar business or creating a cure for cancer or really big shit, but I'm okay just coming home and watching some TV with my parents. I'm tired of being told I have to do big things with my life, especially if it means crawling over others or being crawled over. I'll do my part to be socially and environmentally conscious, to do right by myself and my neighbors, to make my little corner of the world shine a little bit brighter. >>717711
Good luck anon!! I hope you'll get it!

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

singing again feels so good. i was too scared to do it because of annoying flatmates. but i found a way to do it without causing much noise.
>blankets under the door frame
>head into corner of the room
>put blanket over head
and tadaa i can sing
it feels so freeing
Thank you, we actually got it, I'm so happy and relieved! Now comes all the paperwork part which makes me a bit anxious.>>717901
Moving in with my brother for a while is probably the best decision for us, we get along great and we have similar lifestyles, we don't make a lot of money and real estate is hell in my city, especially for young singles. We don't plan on living together forever of course, but I think we're off to a good start. Good luck to you and your brother too!

I am working on self-esteem and making progress in general. I feel smart learning to code and finding it easy so far. I took a pic of myself from an unflattering angle but it still kinda cute I guess, and another that's normal and I think is nice. Also reminded by the other anon who I'm happy for, I'm singing a little sometimes. Sadly not skilled or confident to sing for real, but I sing in a not-caring-if-it's-bad-or-weird quiet voice, making up songs and stuff. My hope is to sing in the shower and when I'm alone. I always worry someone overhears. If I sing near them then they know I'm being silly and not wondering "what's that sound" you know

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

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

With all us kids moving out, my parents are downsizing and moving to a smaller, cozier house. Meanwhile, I'm moving into a little place of my own. My mom and I both LOVE home reno and interior design and love showing each other our design ideas for our new homes. Floor tiling, paint colors, furniture, you name it. We even bingewatch HGTV together and daydream. I feel so happy and bubbly being able to bond with her this way, combined with the excitement of having a new place all to myself!>>721172>>717711>>717901>>711020
Cheers to my fellow new home/new home seeking anons!
Aww that's sweet anon, glad you and your mom can share that together.
I made a pinterest board for my upcoming move. I usually would just take old furniture or the cheapest furniture because that's all I could do. Now I am trying to find out my personal style and I don't have to compromise for what my roommates want, since it's just me.

After months of severe nerve pain that even morphine couldn't touch, my doctor has referred me on to the chronic pain clinic! I'm probably going to be given a nerve root block which could potentially wipe the pain out for up to three months. I've been crying with relief all morning because I don't remember what it was like to walk and be independent. I might be able to walk soon, nonnies!!!

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

It was my mom's birthday today, I cleaned up a little before she came home from her office space, woke up the cats to be there by the door to greet her and I had ordered her fave desserts and her fave weird beers! I had no chances to get her what I wanted to get but she loved the art prints I got her and I'm gonna pay to get them professionally framed locally. Had a nice, cozy night, watched a movie and I wrote her a little stupid poem which she enjoyed, it's nice her bday falls so close to valentines though, you can find so nice cards and flower bouquets!
Your mom is living my dream life! I’m so happy I’m short and like contorting my body into weird curled up positions because I’m ready to cozy up in this hammock chair hehe>>737835
Happy birthday to your mom!!! You sound like the sweetest daughter, so happy that she enjoyed your gifts!

I went out for a little Galentines date with one of my best friends last night! We went to a place that had an outdoor set up, with heated private cabins. We ordered a lot of food (one of the servers commented on it when we left lol) but I had a good time and have zero regrets ordering a bunch of food. Everything was so good, and the only thing we didn't finish was desert because it was way too rich for us. I've never done anything for Valentines because I usually don't have a partner, but I'm happy I got to celebrate with a good friend this year!
Rather than being sad and eating my feelings away that I don't have a partner, I'm just happy to have a cute little date with good food and good company. I'm happy for all the love I have in my life, from friends and family. I always think of this post I saw from an anon two years ago, and I never thought I'd ever be in a position where I am just filled with such love and happiness that I have so much to share with them. I'm in no rush to share it with just anyway, and wait patiently for the day I'll meet a wonderful person that I can share it with, and can spend future Valentines days with. I'll always be working on my life and myself, and I hope that my future partner will be a good person to the person I am trying my best to become. Hope all of you farmers have a happy Valentines day!

It tickles me to think that there’s a massive subset of fanfiction revolving around just comforting and caring for people. Girls are just so caring. I love girls.
Proud of you, anon!
Embroidery is awesome and so useful for personalization/gifts. It's also really relaxing and easy to do while watching shows or something.

We hit it off and have another date this weekend. Big plus is she's tomboyish but TERFY too so I don't have walk on eggshells with what I say, or worry about her being genderspecial. Proud gay girl who is hot and butch feels like such a rarity, especially when we clicked so heavily personality wise. Wish me luck anons that things continue going well!

i closed on my first place today! despite only living away from family during college (i'm almost 25), i somehow ended up buying a condo because rent around here is way too expensive; it was a stressful process first time around and i'm still a bit nervous about things from here since everything is so unfamiliar, but despite the fact that its somewhat tiny (~700sqft) and needs some work done, i finally have a place of my own and even came out in great shape financial wise. adulting is scary but i'm gonna try to stay positive!

The idea of buying a home seems so foreign and impossible to me, but I'm so happy for you anon! I hope to own a place one day. I live in a co-op that my parents bought, so it's not technically owning it, but they plan to leave it for me to inherit and it will be the closest thing I will ever have to owning property here in NYC. I get excited thinking of the day that I'll be able to renovate it. I hope you'll get lots of great furniture deals to make your home super nice and cozy!
Anon, this makes me so happy to read. Being at peace and enjoying the simple wonders of the world is an absolutely beautiful thing and it makes me so happy that you can experience it! It used to feel impossible when you're in the depths of depression, to just be happy with existing and the things around you. It feels so silly and dumb to find peace in things like warming yourself up in the sun, stepping out and being greeted by beautiful weather and a clear blue sky (or cloudy weather if that's your cup of tea), but when you get there, it's amazing. Truly no thoughts, head empty. No intrusive thoughts to ruin my day, just staring out at the world and feeling overwhelming peace and joy at our existence in this world.
I hope you'll be able to experience many, many more of these moments anon! I used to not appreciate them and think "this will be short lived" but that's just a part of life! Other moments of peace will come, and the unsavory parts of life will make those moments of peace all the more welcomed.

usually have this thread hidden, but i feel so good today for some reason, my spirits are up and i went to my job and actually felt keen on greeting customers, and sounded naturally peppy. for the first time in awhile, i have a day of contentedness
Thank you, kind anon. You described this feeling so perfectly, better than I could. Happiness really is a transient thing, and I used to freak out about happiness going in an instant too.
Right back at you, too! May you have plenty of happy days ahead!

deleted reddit off my phone 4 hours ago. let's see how long i can keep it up this time.
i never really thought of the health benefits but there was a fact i know, that im not sure if its credible or not, but using earbuds and headphones for long duration could potentially damage hearing.
my main reason is that i tend to be more aloof when using headphones, like less outgoing and that i am also less productive with my tasks since i get really invested to listening music or videos. the only time im not wearing one is when im asleep so i spent using it for really long hours which is gross now that i realized.

I started shaving my pcos beard with a straight razor and now I feel like a hot butch cowboy every morning. It makes me a lot less depressed about having a pcos beard in the first place. Also tbh a lot easier than normal razors once you get the hang of.
True especially the over the ear kind of headphones.
I wear mine a lot too and started cleaning it up every 3 days with cotton pads and alcohol because imagine the dirt and bacteria that accumulates there…

I stopped talking to someone who always made me feel less and never cared about me. I'm so proud of myself but I'm afraid I won't last long and talk to them again. Encourage me pleeeease
Most of the time I'm absent-minded and distracted because of ADHD, but my boyfriend treats me so well. He's always telling me how cool, amazing, and intelligent I am despite me feeling like I'm fumbling over myself and always showing him my flaws. It's like he only sees the best in me, and it's helping me see more of that too. He's the most wonderful man I've ever met, I can tell he genuinely respects me and he's always going out of his way to make me happy. Just being around him makes me feel really warm. He's so sweet and chipper.
My previous exes were nice guys on the outside, but only when it was convenient and easy for them. They also never gave me genuine compliments, but would call me generic stuff like "cute" or "beautiful." I know this part sounds like humblebragging, but it feels like a world of difference when my boyfriend compliments something I did well or what he likes about me besides my appearance. And when he does compliment my appearance it's never generic shit like "u look gud bb", he notices the effort I put into my outfits and hair.
It may not sound like much just from this post, but I feel really lucky to have found him.

I got pet guinea pigs about three months ago and whenever I look at them I just get a really warm fuzzy feeling that i’m taking care of two cute creatures from the moment they were basically born (well I got them when they were three weeks old) and I get to watch them grow and develop their little ‘personalities’ as well as the fact i’m their primary caretaker so they get to know me more. I’ll go to work and then I think about coming home, playing with them and giving them their fresh veggies and it helps me get through the day. it’s been a long time since i’ve had a pet and i’m enjoying it a lot. my boyfriend loves to help out and play with them too so it makes me feel even happier that I have a partner who likes small animals and cares for them. life is going really nicely for me so far and i’ve been a lot happier lately which is something I never expected to happen and I feel like I owe it to my piggies for giving me a reason to keep going when other things in life don’t feel as certain.
i'm so happy for you anon! i think i've found the same thing with my boyfriend and i can't believe how lucky i am. it feels really good to be supported and loved. i just need to make sure my foggy ass brain doesn't let me forget that i need to reciprocate just as much!
i really hope everything goes well for you two! i'm rooting for you ♥

I feel really glad anons, not much of a reason. I love everyone right now. Ok so I'm a little affected by medication but still. Anyway, I have this energy beneath my skin so I am listening to music, walking around my room a little, and dancing even though it's silly. I don't really know how to dance hmmmm
Have fun nonny
Today I undressed to take a shower and caught a glance of myself. You know when you look in a certain direction where you don't expect to see a mirror, and you think your reflection is someone else for a split second? That happened to me, and my first thought literally was "Damn, her titties look good". Mind you, ever since mine grew in at age 11, they were always saggy, and I was extremely self-conscious about them and hated them ever since. They were probably a big reason I had my trans phase, too. But today I thought they looked sexy as hell, and in retrospect really berated myself for thinking otherwise. They seemed not even 'sexy' at that moment, but clasically beautiful, like of a Greek marble statue of a woman.
Love your boobs, anons!!
I'm so happy you are happy about yourself. I felt similar today. I put on such a cute outfit, I wish I could show you all. I have this tunic/dress that looks like something a witch would wear, but a cute young witch not an old evil one.
Also I learned that if you cut stockings into socks that they will not slide down if you wear another pair of stockings under them. I cut up a pair because they had holes and were short and now I have socks

Feeling much better after a breakup! Had one last interaction with him and really found out it would be a constant stress for me to be with him. I don't have to regret a thing. I feel much lighter, while still a bit lonely, I feel like I'm turning a new page in my life. And while it might be childish, I love how it's spring right now. It really feels like new beginnings are all around me and I love it. Days are getting longer and brighter, it's warm enough for long walks outside and flowers are starting to bloom.

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

I looked at my bank account and I have a very comfortable amount of money in there. Even outside of the money I've set aside from emergencies, I have a comfortable amount in my checkings. I'm gonna start investing some of it soon! I don't want to be a finance bro or want to try to become super rich off of it, I just want to give my future self a small helping hand. >>763772

I got a notification at work and I think the irs just sent me a check with the additional refund for the unemployment tax. Money just keeps falling into my lap right now!! The unemployment last year giving me twice my last salary, the stimulus checks, my new job paying a dollar more, and now this. The pandemic really sucks but it gave me the chance to pull out of working grind hell.
My job recently sent an email reminding me of the 70hrs (10 days of PTO) I still have left and since I got promoted I'll have 160 (23 days!!) in July to spend on my first real vacation ever.
so glad things are going so well for you! that all sounds great.. trying to invest some of that luck myself!!
this thread's given me lots of motivation to finally start applying for jobs again since covid, love y'all <3
Time to treat yourself anon!!!!! >>765645
I wish you the best of luck on your job hunt! I'm about to start up again and it's sucky and draining but remember that rejections are not a reflection on you! I'm sure you're a hard worker, I hope you'll find an employer who will be able to see that in you!

I made a profile on Spacehey (new myspace clone) and it's fun to look at people's profiles. There's lots of identical scene kids though. But there are some interesting people too. I found a blog post by a girl whining about being reprimanded for not following the dress code and I felt so happy, like it's not just a copy of myspace, it's the real new myspace, the place for teens to whine and paste photos. I hope I can find likeminded people

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

Hello anons, a few things had happened that had made me reflect on a lot of aspects of my life. I finally decided to just be more open about my feelings and try to change for the better.
I'm finally going to be honest to my crush on Discord. No more stalking, no more secrets, nothing. Just an actual conversation face to face for once. I don't know if he is going to accept my feelings, but I don't mind anymore. I just want both of us to be happy, and if that means that we should find a different person for each other, I understand.
Anyways, wish me luck anons. Whatever the result is now, at least he and I made each other happy for a while.

I like when my dad wakes up at dawn, prays and then upload a "good morning" whatsapp statue every day. And then I find a cute "good morning " text from my mom and aunt. May God bless them all .
i love that you love this quiet environment. enjoy it, anon! you deserve it.
my job is regularly like this on weekends. i work overnights and my busy work only takes at most 2 hours to complete, so i have 6 hours of free time throughout my shift. on weekdays i get 4-5 hours of free time, it's still a great environment. i sometimes sneak in an hour or two of sleep lol. my supervisor is laxed about it since he's been in my position for a few years. majority of the time i just play video games or read books. at one point i was doing comissions for my friends, so i was basically getting paid on top of getting paid, but i got tired of hauling in my laptop and drawing tablet. my laptop has turned to shit, so that's out of the question for now.

I think other women are so pretty. I love women so much. The eyes, the lips, the hair, the voices. The way women dress, the way they move. I love how women talk, I love the warm feeling they give me when I become friends with them and get to know them and listen to them. Even the ones I don't get along with are such a strong and interesting individuals. I don't know if I actually am into women romantically or just appreciate them a lot for existing but I can't help but be drawn to them. Women are just so nice.

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

I finally ditched my formerly abusive ex for good. He didn't do anything wrong of late, I just felt exhausted interacting with him and dealing with the anxiety of wondering if/when he'd eventually revert back to being cruel and manipulative even as a "friend." In the past I would've spent hours crying over losing him and our interaction ending, but now I genuinely just feel relieved and free. I'm looking forward to focusing on myself and my happiness without relying on him for a sense of worth.

I felt pretty shitty and exhausted after bad things kept happening to me last few weeks but I still did all the very difficult things I needed to do! I still pushed through and managed, maybe not with best possible outcomes but it was good enough. I also managed to keep up with everyday yoga to make my mental state better. I didn't give up.
My goal now is to just power through next week and love myself. It's all gonna be okay in the end, bad things will pass.
I am in a similar situation and I hope I will feel better.
I smiled for the first time this week today :)
Anon that's HUGE, the best is yet to come! Congratulations!>>788165

I just texted my best friend for the first time in a month Not negative, but I think I was overwhelmed and (seasonally)depressed? I genuinely don’t know what makes me feel the need to be distant every once in a while. I think mental exhaustion from lockdown had a part in it.
I missed her so much.

As my 20s are slowly coming to a close, I realized I am 100% comfortable living as the slight eccentric I've always been. I didn't allow myself to enjoy or do a lot of things because I was worried other people would think it was too weird or cringey. But now I don't care anymore, I am going to start that doll collection, buy all the plushies, crystals & cringe anime merchandise, start wearing lolita, grow my hair as long as it will go.
I'm actually looking forward to the freedom of being in my 30s and being considered "past my prime" by scrotes & society at large. Feels like a sort of freedom to be considered irrelevant, I'll be free to do whatever I want.

YES, DO IT. EMBRACE BEING A WEIRDO. Only naïve, boring, anxious people care about that kind of approval– and there's still no guarantee everyone will like them regardless. Indulge in your hobbies, wear what makes you smile when you look in the mirror, learn and grow without restraint. I promise you'll be happier.
I hate when women propagate the "past my prime" bullshit against themselves, particularly on here. What makes you valuable is not an arbitrary rating from some strange chucklefuck who lives on the internet. Imagine how much more fulfilling it will be to cultivate relationships with people who share your interests and don't see your "flaws" as ammunition to reject you.
I relate to this because I'm also a weirdo… the problem is, I don't show it to anyone. I feel uncomfortable talking about my real passions even though they're harmless. IDK how to change that, I'm in therapy, but I have so many issues it's crazy.
BTW, also looking forward to wearing lolita once I lose weight and can afford it.

I'm like at the verge of tears.
The past few days/ weeks everything in general has been stressfull af. I gotta hand in my criminal law thesis tomorrow and I still have to write on that. I broke my rib laughing 4 weeks ago. I had so much unnecessary trouble with my insurance company because they thought I wasn't in my parents plan anymore and wanted to charge me 12000€ (luckily they did realise that was a mistake)
My boyfriend is gone on a motorcycle trip today and I thought you know what. Fuck cooking. I'm broke af but I really want some pizza, I probably have enough change laying on my desk for the Dominos Lunch Menu. I did. So I order myself this bad boi right here. Cash ready for when the order arrives and then boom:
SOMEONE ALREADY PAID FOR YOUR ORDER INCLUDING TIP! HAVE A GREAT DAY.
I have no clue who they are. Why they've decided I deserve some free Pizza. But this makes me so goddamn happy. It's like life was like: Look there is still a lot you gotta do; but I've been a little hard on you have some free Pizza.
The total order was like 11€ so it's not like it was a lot of money. But fuck this is just so damn nice.
I hope whoever paid for it has the greatest day ahead of them.
I didn't know a free pizza would make me almost cry but I'm also super stressed and on my period, with a broken rib so yeah.
Here is the beauty. So yeah I will enjoy some free pizza and I hope life gives you some free pizza too! (That's actually a great metaphor)

I know it's silly, but I am tearing up because I started bonding with partner's little brother…
We are only having chit chats about videogames (some jrpgs included) and share nice pixiv art, but it's already something…
I have not seen my little brothers and family in two years now, so I am really happy that I can feel at least a tiny bit important in such small moments.
I am very happy cause his sister hates me, but I do not care about it for a long time now cause it's her mind and her choices.
I started doing morning stretches, which turned into morning yoga, when I returned back to work after lockdown. It was to help my incredibly stiff body (insane amounts of time playing ACNL during lockdown lol) but also help me wake up since getting out of bed early again was rough. Now it's just a part of my routine, and I hate it when I can't do even just a short 10 minute routine. I don't do workouts or anything, but I'll browse around for a 15-20 minute video that I think looks easy enough and I think it's such a great way to start my morning. I love to look out my window and see the glow of the morning sun on the buildings across the street. Something about it fills me with such joy and peace and I'm grateful to be able to see it every morning and I feel like it feeds my soul, as cheesy as it sounds.
I've been getting out of bed just a little bit earlier, minute by minute, as the days and weeks go by, just so I can spend more time doing yoga. My goal is to actually be up and out of bed at 6am (I usually wake up and go back to sleep lol) and do a reeeeeeeally long practice, maybe even some work outs. For now, it's just 15 to 20 minutes of some nice slow stretches.
I'm becoming the person I want to become. I hope one day I'll be able to regularly set aside time for journaling, reading, and night time stretches too! But I'll take it one step at a time.

I've started "losing interest" in the internet. Typically I'm online until right before bed around 1AM. But lately I get bored by 9PM, shut my laptop off and start reading a book. It's such a nice way to wind down before going to sleep, and probably better for my eyes in the long run kek. I don't even lie in bed scrolling through my phone anymore. I hope I keep these habits up!
I believe in both of you, anons! I suggest actively looking for books you want to read. I built my latest to-read list just from browsing my local bookstore's online shop and borrowing a couple from my sister. And find a nice comfy nook in your home to designate as your reading spot, not your computer desk or your bed. Don't turn reading into your "homework", turn it into something you actively look forward to! Have a nice drink to go along with it, even. Enjoy!>>792961
Hell yeah, cheesecake is my fav. What kind of cheesecake was it, anon?

So anon if you read this, please know you helped so much and you likely are helpful to others.";-;
I don't do crazy work, I was just helping her with some stuff my job offers but damn. This makes me so happy, what a sweet lady.

I’m the baby carrot anon in the vent thread
I got drunk and ate a normal meal with my mom (huge bowl of Korean food) and fried calamari, had two candy bars
And decided that I wasn’t going to treat myself like shit tonight or punish myself for indulging
Like who HASNT gained weight during this past year
I’m not even overweight like damn why am I shooting myself in the foot. I had so much fun with my mom just talking and getting things off my chest and I’m going to make a blueberry and lemon cake for Mother’s Day for her at her place… ahhh
And I’m watching a good movie about beauty YouTube drama and vibing with my cat
Okay, I’ve polluted this thread with too much sub negativity, here’s to not being a bitch to yourself for ONE night.
It's a step in the right direction! I hope you'll have many more nights where you can be kind to yourself, you deserve it!
I also felt terrible about gaining weight because of the pandemic and lockdown even though I didn't gain too much noticeable weight (pants definitely didn't fit though lol), but I've learned to view it as "as least I was fortunate to be in a situation where we could afford snacks and food to cook every night" instead of being down in the dumps for snacking a little too much.

i second this, and this is why i'm dating an older man. it's not for everyone, but dating someone your own age isn't for everyone, either.

I started playing on an aging pet site again to live out my teenage dreams despite being older, and I was worried I’d be the odd one out… but I found a whole discord full of older women to hang out with that play too! Moms, even grandmothers!
So much of my adult life online has lived in caustic moid communities, I didn’t realize how much I missed interacting with women. It’s been a really nice change during an otherwise very physically and mentally difficult time.

I spent the last bucks I had with sushi. It was so delicious, I'm completely broke now but I have no regrets. I always order from the same place and they never disappoint. If I could choose my last meal before I die, this would be the one. I'm grateful I'm able to order food I like occasionally.
I was actually thinking of female professors when I posted that (and I'm straight), but I do have an enduring crush on a former male prof who's a good decade older than me. He's married with kids, plus he's genuinely a good guy so neither of us would touch on anything beyond friendship, but it's definitely attractive when an older man actually has his shit together rather than just playing at being an adult. >>795043
This is really sweet anon! I'm in my late 20s and still visit virtual pet sites now and then. I think it's so cute and wholesome places like that are where even older women tend to congregate. I'm also in some Discord servers entirely composed of women and I agree that it's a relief to be surrounded by people you know can relate to you and aren't going to bust out gross or sexist commentary out of the blue. At this stage in my life I could really see myself getting behind separatism if it was more feasible, but engaging in women-only spaces as much as possible is still a good balm for the soul.

After a few days of no response my landlord messages me and says it's no problem if I want to get a small dog! I feel like I've spent every free hour of my day reading about dogs and listening to every drop of dog/puppy content on youtube and I'm seriously ready for a puppy. I'm so excited to actually start the process!

Thank you anon! And yes I'm mostly looking at pomeranians. I didn't know much about them for a long time but reading about them they seriously have such sweet and silly personalities. I love how they usually really love their owners and act all suspicious towards strangers. And they're just pure comedy with the faces they make.

I am SO incredibly happy right now!!!! My childhood friend who always had a crush on me is coming to see me in July, she's so cute she's an afro latina, omg I just want to kiss her, I'm so so happy and I just aaaa I wish we could use emojis here because I feel so much joy!!!
Anon this sounds so lovely!!! I love going for walks. Now that it's getting warmer I hope I can take morning walks by the water again. I love those days where things just feel so right
, like the sun shining down on our day and the flowers around us blooming, it's wonderful!
Tomorrow I'm interviewing at a company I used to work at. I had to leave because I worked a contract position but I made friends with people there and one contacted me to let me know a position opened up. I don't know if I'll get it and don't want to feel too full of myself, but I like to think that things are aligning in just the right way and that's why this opportunity presented itself. Even if I don't get it, I'm happy that my friend there immediately thought of me and was recommending me to the person who is the interim HR director now. She believes so much in me, so many of mentors in my life believe in me, so I will believe in myself too. I will prepare for the worst, and hope for the best.

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

Nothing relaxes me more than a hot shower. Whatever science behind it, it always feels like it washes my soul too.
I will be utterly destroyed if I'm jumping the gun here, but I think the interview went really well. I knew the HR girl already and she only asked really basic HR questions (what salary are you looking for, when can you start, etc), but the other interviewer is someone I don't know and he came in after I left the company so I was sooo nervous. He said he asked around the office about me and everyone said good things about me, and he seems like a nice guy. He was impressed with my schooling even though I'm actually dumb as bricks lol.
My friend who recommended me for the position went to go talk to him today and she texted me "I believe it's all up to you now!" in terms of working out salary… so I guess… maybe I did get it?!?! He had a good impression of me and said I was energetic lol. I do have another interview tomorrow with a different place that I know has much higher salary, but I think I'm willing to forgo the better salary for a work environment that I know and am comfortable with. Maybe I sound like a pompous asshole for saying money isn't the biggest motivator for me, but it kind of isn't. I left a well paying, high stress job for low wage basic bitch office work and was so much happier with the chill environment.
But things aren't set in stone yet, so I'm still going to try my best on my interview tomorrow too so I'll have a backup at least!

While I was grumbling through a tedious task at my job, I paused, took a step back, and realized that I’m living my dream. I have the career I’ve always wanted, that I said I wanted in high school, then college, then later when I took a detour with my first job that wasn’t in that field but to just get my feet wet. I have my dream career and I get to grumble through its tedious parts. I’m grateful.
Awesome, I'm really happy for you!>>799636

A little light at the end of the tunnel - while the first place he was committed to was bad, people found out where he was sent and major figures like H. G. Wells and the prime minister actively pushed to have him moved to a better facility. The next hospital was pretty nice and had a garden with cats, so he was able to spend the last years of his life surrounded by the critters he loved and in relative peace.
I love my best friends from high school so much. We basically have nothing in common besides the fact that we went to same high school, but we are best friends and have been for a decade now. I kinda didn't care for them in high school because I would hang out with cosplay friends I made outside of school, but lo and behold I'm not hanging out with those weirdos anymore. Then in college I became friends with the cosplayers on my campus but, again, I'm not friends with them anymore. Maybe picking cosplayers/people consumed by the internet and internet culture for friends was my first problem, but through all the years my high school friends have stuck by me. Who knew that the normies would've made better friends?? I don't mean it in a bad way, but they're normal, well adjusted people who didn't spend a huge portion of their time consumed with tumblr and fandom culture (and by extension, the mental illness hype train). We only talk like once or twice a year in the group chat, but we pick up conversations like nothing and the time spent apart just means we get to talk and talk and talk about all the things that have happened since we last talked/hung out. We've seen each other glow up, and I feel like these people genuinely root for my success and happiness and I do the same for them. I think rather than being bonded together by similar interests, our friendship is so strong because our personalities just mesh so well.
My high school was extremely small, so everyone knew everyone. I feel like any time I get to talk to any one of my other high school friends that I talk to maybe once every few years, it's the same feeling of being happy for each other and rooting each other on. It's so great, and I feel so fortunate to know these people. It sucks that it's taken me so long and so many lost friends to realize what an absolute treasure these people are, but better late than never to realize it right? I hope everyone finds friends like these. I hope when I grow old, we will still be able to catch up every once in a while.

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

This is amazing, nonnie
! I am very happy for you! Cats are wonderful creatures and each one have their own personalities, but they're delightful.
If you don't already, i recommend watching Jackson Galaxy's videos, he's a cat behavior specialist and very helpful, especially for first timers

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

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

I’ve been thinking about this tweet a lot recently and I really love it. Even the people who left my life because of a fight or a break up- there are still bits of me that are me because of them. And the people who I love and love me, there are parts of me that shine through them and parts of them that shine through me! I love it.

this is pretty beautiful to think about anon! even if it's worded a bit cheesy for my taste lol. it's not easy to think of it all that way, but helpful with reconciling the good times with the bad. even the bad experiences have shaped us to be hopefully wiser.
I'm happy I got to hold my arm around my brother while he fell asleep against me. He is the light in my life ngl. Also glad I accomplished some things today and kept a level head. Time to get some sleep!>>805445
This is so wholesome I'm happy for you! What sweeties (both of you).
I'm back to confirm that YES!! I got the job!! I start on June 1st! Kind of sucks that my last day at my job is May 28th so I won't get that sweet holiday pay from memorial day but oh well lol.
I'm really excited to go back to my old company. They gave me the minimum pay rate I was looking for, which isn't a lot, but there's apparently bi-annual bonuses, and I know they have decent benefits. I'm excited to see my old coworkers again and just be chill all the time. I know this department has it's own little room off to the side in the main office, so I get to be secluded and not many people can just walk up behind me and see what I'm doing besides my supervisor hehe. I'll also have my own desk!! The room also has big windows that get a lot of sunlight, I'm excited to do my job while basking in the warmth of the sun. The company is on the top floor of the building, so the view is just some of the other high rise buildings in my city, but it feels a little like I'm living in a movie that takes place in my city hehe.
To all the job hunting anons, here's some of my luck!! Take it! Take it and get that job you want! I'm rooting for all of you, I hope everything works out for you!

>tfw I now make enough money to have a real vacation for the first time in my life
Going to Ocean City, MD in July for four nights!! Hotel booked, it's a king bed with an ocean view. Me and my bf are going to spend some romantic, drug/alcohol-fueled quiet time together, meet up with a couple of friends, oh god I'm so excited I can't
Do you mean the coaster that was also a haunted house?! If so I tried that on the first time I went (it was a short day trip thing) and it was amazing!! I didn't know they could put real actors in there! Tbh the best part of the ride was how literally unsafe and rickety the ride felt lol, would ride again 10/10
Also hell yeah, people always say how seacrets is awesome, maybe we'll give it a shot!

Made some digital art for a commercial last month. Got paid and moved on. Today the director emailed saying they're expanding it to print/billboards so they're going to pay me an additional usage fee. My earnings doubled and I didn't have to do shit. I love money so much>>808504
The fucking dream, anon! Enjoy your vacation!
The production house put out an open call for freelancers with experience in digital art and photo manipulation, both of which I do. I sent in my cv and portfolio and got the project. I should add, my art was hardly the star of the show, nothing glamorous. It was a mostly live-action filmed ad with little animated drawings scattered through it.
Follow the social media of production houses, design agencies, etc! They outsource often because they always have several projects going on.

My work friend and I, who have a sibling-esque relationship, bickered a bit at the start of my shift, and my day was already bad enough and that made it worse. He ended up coming back right before close to grab drinks, but he helped pull in furniture from outside first. We got to this horrible, severely damaged table that we all hate but still used for some reason, and we just decided to toss it out without checking in with our boss. We walked it to the dumpster together and both apologized—a lot of our (and others) anger is misdirected at each other when it’s meant for our retarded boss/shop owner lol. Anyways, it was just a nice way to end the night. I didn’t want to go to bed stewing over work for nothing. Picrel represents us.
Yep! The ones that employ savvy young people at least. Good luck out there!>>809655

I love women, there are so many sweet and wonderful, cute and thoughtful and deep thinking ones of you out there! Even though I'm sad for what we go through, I'm also happy and blessed to be one because of our strengths and good qualities. Sorry this isn't coming out clear. I just admire how hard working we are, how beautiful inside and out, when we are at our best that is. I was thinking about fanfiction and how much love and talent goes into it, I love how it's a female-dominated world because there is so much passion, creativity and intelligence in some of it. I just find it really cute to think about the person who wrote it and how much care she put in. Then the super kind and thoughtful comments on it, sometimes they write long analyses of what they read, all for free born out of enjoyment, it's wonderful and adorable and makes me smile. Sorry if it's weird to feel this way or express it like this. There are just so many very lovable women I hope I can make friends soon I will value them with my whole heart

My hobby group is the best. Healthy mix of zillennials to recommend fresh and trendy designs/resources, and boomers so the woke/gender discourse is kept to an absolute minimum. I know it's annoying for most depressed people when others tell them to just take up a hobby but when I post something in the fb group and my notifs fire up with comments from people just as enthusiastic as me about said thing, it makes me feel full of light and joy for living.
Pretty broad, actually! The group is primarily for fiber-based crafts like knitting, crocheting, sewing, weaving, embroidery, but some people have shared their woodworking, leathercraft, and candlemaking since you can imagine crafters like to have a thumb in everything kek.>>811250

I had a nice date today! First proper date since I broke up and got my heart broken. I was pretty insecure about myself but once I met with him I socialized really well, had fun talking, joking and I being myself. That's such a big deal for me, I used to be really afraid and awkward socially. It's a big deal I didn't chicken out and cancel it. Even though I'm not really sure about the guy himself it was a great experience and well spent afternoon. Cider and cappuccino, watching sunset from a castle restaurant and a nice walk around the walls. I guess I was just bullshitting myself that I'll never find anyone else.

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

i finally made a good character design for a project i'm making. i’ve been working on it on and off for a whole year now and was nowhere close to being happy with his design until now so it’s a big deal to me. it used to be so generic and uninspired and now it tells you everything you need to know about him at a glance, the concept might be extremely silly but i think it works. i love him.
That's a sweet compliment from your brother, I'm glad he was supportive and gave you due praise! I admire anyone who can put together artsy things like this with all the care and precision it takes. Nice work nonny
and I bet your doll looks great in it.

I downloaded a friend-finder app (kinda works like tinder) that's girls only. Made an account but abandoned it since August because of my social anxiety. However this month I downloaded the app again and spoke to like seven girls on there. Ended up meeting one of the girls today for brunch and I had so much fun nonnies!! I'm honestly overjoyed that it actually went well? I feel like I might have imagined that my social anxiety was worse than it is during this pandemic. I'm so damn happy I feel like I can do anything now!

And I told her how I planned it and she said my ideas are great. I'm so happy my mom is supportive of me, I know most parents would be disinterested or disdainful of such hobbies but she says I'm amazing and didn't mind too much when I took up half the kitchen table for a few months.

This is such a great photo. Through all these years I still smile everytime I see it. I feel the exact same joy as my child self did the first time I saw it, ''haha funny monkey man with pigtails''. It's just as funny everytime. It will never get old and I love that. My favorite photo on the Internet.

I ended up incidentally running into my ex and I didn't break down sobbing or rush into his arms or attempt to soothe him over whatever new shit he'd gotten himself into. Didn't even get mad about everything he put me through. Just spoke briefly, wished him good luck and walked away without looking back. I may be a lonely bitch sometimes but at least I've finally broken the cycle of abuse. I deserve better.
Thank you nonny
. I felt like I'd moved past him despite occasionally missing the good times, but it was nice getting that confirmation of him standing right in front of me and having the strength to walk away.
queen shit. thats something to definitely be proud of. this nonnie
is proud of you
Anon isn't responsible for the dogs that are in a shelter, I hate this mentality that you have the moral obligation get a pet from a shelter when you're looking for one.>>816247
Enjoy your puppy!

Good luck!! I'm manifesting good vibes for you!!
Sometimes people want to know the genetic history of the dogs they are getting, which reputable breeders can provide. Sometimes shelters make the adopting process very difficult (yes, this is a thing that happens) and it’s easier to just get a dog from a breeder than being turned down constantly by a every shelter in a 100 mile radius because they didn’t like what was written in your lease agreement or whatever other reason. Puppies can also be difficult to get from shelters because they are very much in demand compared to senior dogs/dogs with health issues.
inb4 i adopted by dog from a shelter just fine!
My parents and I visited several shelters, including some we drove hours out for, only to be denied or skipped over. My friend had to submit a ridiculous amount of documentation, including his lease agreement and many other private documents, only to be turned down by multiple shelters for over a year.
Please realize there are many reasons to choose a breeder over a shelter, not just the two I listed. Even if someone wants to get a dog as an accessory, if the dog is well fed, loved, and taken care of properly, who cares? Anon is ready to open up her heart and home to a new pup, and I’m sure she will provide a good home for that dog. >>816247
Very excited for you and your new pup! I wish you the warmest cuddles and all the sweet puppy kisses in the world!
There's tons of reasons, real and superficial, why people don't want to adopt shelter animals.
Animals are property at the end of the day and nobody owes it to animals to adopt them just because someone else's poor choices landed them there.
If the real issues were addressed, then the need for shelters wouldn't even exist and this conversation wouldn't be happening.
>>816395>nobody owes it to animals to adopt them just because someone else's poor choices landed them there.
Preach.>If the real issues were addressed, then the need for shelters wouldn't even exist and this conversation wouldn't be happening.
Very true. People buying from reputable breeders are NOT the real problem and they don't deserve to be treated as such.

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

I'm going back to school to get a degree. After thinking about it for years, I finally made the decision and today my study materials for the first 3 months arrived.
My mom is so happy for me and hypes me up ever since I made the decision and my best friend supports me and even sent me a parcel full of snacks and cute stationary.
I was so happy and excited all day that I can't sleep now because my stomach hurts. I haven't been this happy in a long time and it motivates me even more!

its my birthday today!
There's a certain kind of warm vulnerability to unending friendships spanning across decades. Growing up and influencing each other, branching out in college yet never losing touch, then coming back together afterwards even stronger. Nothing needs to be affirmed or hidden anymore, it's just unconsciously understood nothing can tear you apart at this point. My life has been so interwoven with some of the most wonderful women on the planet for so long I cannot begin to think about where I'd be otherwise.>>818554

I've finally come to the realization that in order to become happy with my body I have to quit drinking so much. There's no other way. My face and weight are never going to look how I want them to unless I stop being such an alkie. It's definitely not going to be easy but I know I'll look like Shayna in a few years if I go on like this.
Sorry if it's not positive enough for the thread but I feel like I've found the resolve to actually do something about it instead of just thinking it. Feeling pretty optimistic about it, I'm going to do my best!
I got $5 credit from my favorite froyo place for for my birthday and I'm so excited.>>819981

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

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

I am an anon from a while ago that posted about recovering from brain surgery. Figured for any chronically ill or in pain anons out there I would tell you guys that since I had my surgery 9 months ago I’ve been able to work, start EMDR therapy for my PTSD, exercise every day and I’ve lost almost 90lbs! My depression and anxiety is significantly reduced and I no longer feel like I have nothing to live for. My health is completely in check for the first time in five years, I sleep soundly, and look forward to my days. If any of you guys are out there feeling crippled by your pain or health/mental health conditions, don’t give up on finding a solution for yourself! My entire life has been changed because I got a second opinion and advocated for myself. You got this!
I'm so happy for you anon! I hope your days will continue to be filled with joy! >>824884

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

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

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

I recently did a bunch of basic, banal stuff to declutter around my apartment. Set up some extension cords and tied off wires, reorganized my bookcase and desk, put away some craft supplies and equipment I’d been ignoring. I really do enjoy organizing things like a complete nerd (wish I could get into stuff like washing dishes and vacuuming as much) and it’s nice having an extra tidy, pretty place now!

Thanks, lovely anons! >>830959
I don't really have groundbreaking tips, but here's my story: I got lucky with a decent paying job after uni, so that really helped. If I had a lower paying job, this wouldn't have been possible. I did put away 50 to 60% of my net salary into the loan. Additionally, I'm pretty thrifty and the lockdown/pandemic helped a LOT, since I wasn't going out or eating out or buying as much clothes (though I never did those two that much before the pandemic). Finally, it took me about 1.5 years to do it (Dec 2019 - yesterday)

my boyfriend just made me cum 5 times in a row
I want what she has, please.
(srsly how did he do that, my bf never made me cum even once)
he goes down on me as foreplay for at least 20 mins every time before sex and he is incredible at oral so i came twice during that, then because i'm super turned on the sex is amazing and his dick is curved so that it hits my g-spot perfectly during missionary so i came three more times from that… i swear when he's fucking me its like one long orgasm the entire time with "peaks" it's so amazing. i am such a lucky gal.
i think its seriously all about the combo of good, patient foreplay to get you in the mood and then finding the perfect angle once you start PIV… i'm lucky that his penis suits me enough that i don't have to work too hard for it to hit my g-spot but typically tilting your hips so that the dude's dick goes in deep and angles up is the best way to hit your g-spot! i have had the best luck when i'm on top riding and grinding back and forth or missionary and shifting my hips. and when all else fails a vibe is always fun to integrate to kick things off hehe. godspeed ladies!!! get that nut!

After struggling to find a very anti-social job and being afraid of customer service due to my social inabilities, I finally stepped out of my comfort zone and got hired as a cashier. So far I've just been in training and I'm still a little scared because I've never been good with my speech, I stutter a bit and sometimes words slip out wrong due to processing issues or I take a while to respond thanks to LPD, but I feel hopeful that this may help me and I'm trying to break out of my shell of being scared of people. I know that really nobody is going to mind it and I'll adapt. This is such a huge step for me towards obtaining happiness and independence, I was so anxious for years I never thought I could do this. I have a long way to go, but I'm proud of myself!

I just remembered a really cute memory from my childhood. Me and my siblings would go to my grandparents house for a sleepover, usually our parents would pick us up after lunch the next day. Sometimes they made hot dogs for us and they had this "hot dog house" that they'd steam the hot dogs in. I remember being really excited about the hot dog house, my grandparents always made it really fun too. To my little kid mind, those hot dogs were the best thing ever. Pic related, it's the hot dog house
Hey anon! I'm so proud of you! One of my first real jobs was as a cashier, and let me tell you, it was nerve wracking as hell! I remember hearing the shakiness in my voice and seeing my my fingers shake as I tried to figure out what buttons to press. You'll get the hang of it anon, I believe in you! Most people are kind and understanding when you mess up, and learning to deal with the shitty ones is just an unfortunate part of life. I hated working retail but I think it's a very good place to start learning basic skills and learning how to interact with many different people. Eventually you'll build up a cache in your brain of phrases to use and it'll be second nature interacting with people! I think it'll also help you build up a thicker skin too. Best of luck anon, and congratulations on the job!>>842018
This is so cute anon… the little hot dog house…!!
For my little piece of positivity today, I went into my parents room and saw that my dog was awake so I went to give her some pats. She was still so sleepy and could barely keep her eyes open as I held her head and rubbed her face and ears. She likes to rub her eye boogies on me which is kinda gross, but I like to think she's blessing me with her puppy goodness. I've had her for so long, some days I still can't believe what a cute old grandma she is. I feel so blessed to have her in my life.

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

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