>Rutland

Rutland has always been a bit of a joke beacause well, it's tiny. I mean, the UK itself is a tiny island in itself but Rutland? Rutland is pretty much a large village

I mean, look at populations. If you ignore london the largest county population is  West Midlands wth 3 million.. But Rutland? 40 thousand. Does not help it's case when the second smallest county is the isle of wight with a population of 150 thousand.

Oh, and Rutland did not exist between 1974 and 1997 as it was simply a part of Leicestershire then. Don't ask me why, most people seem to forget Rutland exists too.

He wasn't a "tyrant", and in fact in his general attitudes to life and governing seems like someone that we'd now call a "public intellectual", to me... yet, of course, his illnesses plagued him until his death.

Interesting take here: https://www.psychreg.org/king-george-mental-health/

"Even as an American, when my own mental health condition grew more complex and evolved into schizophrenia, I found comfort, honesty, and asylum in the king’s narrative. People suffering from extreme impairments from a mental health condition know all too well the vast implications mental illness can have across a cross section and various domains of their life. During the darkest moments of my break, I fancied myself as King George III. I had just lost huge personal and public defeat and knew I needed to forgive myself and my naysayers. Indeed, I needed to forgive myself, and those that had let me down, and rebelled against my wishes, and restore hope and peace in my world. I also knew people were beginning to question my health, specifically mental health condition, and my ability to continue on with my important work at the time."

"During my most tormented days before my mental health disorder was treated and recognised formally, I wrote about the similarities between myself and King George III. Indeed, my inner dialogue, which was growing louder, as thoughts with subsumed by voices, were centred around my struggle living among peers that believed I was ill, and people who rejected me similar to King George’s rejection by America during its revolution."

One wonders what the King might've been able to do were he in different circumstances throughout his life!

my family was cleaning, and found my juris doctorate diploma. it was just... in a paper tube. it's still here, in the tube, sitting on the floor by my guitar. it has been many years since i got it... and nobody ever told me it arrived, and i never thought about it.

in our culture, these things, they are not achievements, they are expected, so they are not celebrated. ...nobody went to my graduation, for example: it was not something to be proud of. it is just, what is expected.

it made me think... what does that feel like? to feel like, you have accomplished something that is to be proud of?

i worry, i may also not be empathetic enough, when others ask me about things like, feeling accomplished...

do you... feel accomplished? when you do something? what is it... like?

Wow. Yeah. I always thought about how my parents had certain expectations of me. If they were met, then nothing was said. But if they weren't met, then something was said or otherwise shown, implied, or something I could pick up on...

...I think that achievements aren't about accomplishing things you're expected to do; they are about accomplishing things you decide to do.

But to accomplish something you're proud of... maybe pride isn't the best thing to feel about accomplishments... Perhaps the satisfaction comes from the process of your inner knowing. If pride or feeling accomplished does happen to appear, maybe that has something to do with true true friends knowing how hard you worked for it...

...otherwise, pride or a feeling of accomplishment as a result of doing things that you didn't decide to do and just going along, meeting the expectations of others... ...maybe that kind of pride isn't really something to care for...

I used to feel it more often.

Then I started to accomplish things that nobody else cared about or understood.

I realized that a lot of my sense of accomplishment came from sharing it with other people and seeing their reaction to me having done it. Or at the very least, seeing other people enjoy something I made.

There are a few rare moments where I'll be working on a particularly difficult problem and I'll come up with a solution that only I could have come up with, and it helps people, and even if they don't know what it took to do it, I'm still proud of what I did.

I feel accomplished then. But that's quite rare these days, especially since I no longer have a job, and don't yet have the health to get one.

The closest I've felt over the last year were an addition to the Lc0 chess engine that allowed me to make specific chess bots for Lichess, and a datapack for minecraft that makes the game as challenging as it was in the alpha/beta days.

I'm proud of both of those and have wanted both to exist for a while. And while barely anyone uses them or even cares about them, I still feel like I did something great, even if they're essentially useless in the grand scheme of things.

Maybe one day I'll get to work on a large influential project that I can actually finish and feel like I've actually done some hard but incredibly useful thing.

Whenever I accomplish something big, the good feelings I get afterwards disappear within a day. I don't necessarily mind it, since then I'm motivated to move onto my next goal(s). Though, it begs the question: If these good feelings aren't sustainable, what am I really trying to gain with these accomplishments?

As childhood becomes more and more of a distant memory for you, to what extent has your past interests in different things (ranging from anything from media franchises to sports teams to social causes to whatever) eroded?

What has taken the places of all that, maybe just day-to-day efforts to work on health goals, career goals, family goals, and the like?

Or, alternately, if you're even more passionate about different fandoms, subcultures, and such, why do you think that's happened to you?

Last week was my best friend's. As in, we've known eachother since we were 4 years old. Totally casual affair, just some food, about 20 people and a very quick ceremony on the inlaws' lawn.

This weekend was my sister's wedding though. She and her husband actually got married back in December, but there were still a LOT of Covid restrictions then, so we had a relatively small wedding with just parents, siblings and kids. But this one was the BIG party, about 70 people, three courses, band, drinks, the whole shebang.
