ahhh tonight is the last night of Pride

it's always sad when it comes to an end, but it's also a perfect time to reflect on the month, what you did, what you remembered, and what you hope for the future!

I learned that queer folk love stickers! I learned a lot of folk love to share with eachother when you give them the space to do it. and that there is so much pride and love all around, despite what media retoric may say

I hope that people share there love more than ever, and in the face of adversity stand taller than ever!


Happy Pride Everyone! even if the month is over, the LGBTQ+ will always and forever be here, and may our colors always fly high!

next month, we welcome Gay Wrath month!

I hammered these two holes in the wall today to deal with the summer heat. It helped more than I had expected. I'm now able to sit in front of an A/C unit (albeit one that doesn't work properly) with a cold drink and relax.

Any other advice as to what to do in order to get better when it's summertime (besides cutting, like I'm really not going to start cutting myself no matter what the thermometer reads)?

I can't afford to live somewhere with working AC.

Best I can manage is moving in with step-dad to avoid becoming homeless in about three weeks.

At least, well, his downgraded place that he's going to is supposed to have working AC then.

As of yesterday night, it became clear that around where I live it's getting so hot and humid at the same time that it's medically dangerous to like... basically do anything other than be inside in bed.

I had thought that I'd be moving over a month ago, but due to negative family situations I'm still stuck.

After looking at alerts in terms of assistance for elderly and disabled people, I'm genuinely not sure what to do. If it's too hot and humid outside for people with breathing difficulties to breathe, I guess you just... don't go outside? Or what? What medically are you supposed to do to improve respiratory function?

Please help?

As I'd feared, my financial situation as well as my situations with my mental and physical health plus my family situation has kept on deteriorating this year so far, as it's been to a dramatic extent after the pandemic hit at a high point of my life during the very early days of 2020.

Other than literally dying, I'm not sure what exactly I should be doing.

Why exactly shouldn't I believe my parents when they've told me to my face that their lives have been worse off due to my being born and how disappointing it is as a parent to have children that're disabled or partially disabled?

What if they're simply right and I'm simply wrong? I've heard this from countless parents throughout my entire life in every single social situation that I can remember. I've never yet a single adult in my entire life who's had a disabled child and has loved them. Do these people exist? Is there one single woman in America with a child in a wheelchair, who's deaf, who's blind, et cetera who doesn't say that she wishes she had had an abortion instead?

I'm rather tired of fighting to deserve being worth living and would rather just die... especially since I live someplace where just existing here is hazardous... unless I literally find somebody else in the United States who can literally "rescue me" by allowing me to live with them or something? Maybe? I guess?

It's literally too hot and humid for me to breathe effectively outside... this isn't an exaggeration... it's been a problem for me all week... God...

i have, a curious question. lately, by all considerations, life has been going well.

my income is very strong this year. i have a lot more free time. i should be much happier.

but... instead, i feel oddly empty. not even like... a little empty. but a lot empty.

and i do not understand why. i feel as if i would just like to lie in bed all day. Maybe read. Everything should be good. why do i feel so deeply in despair? i have a long, long history of depression. But i always thought, when i was younger, that when i got to where i am now, i would be happier... not empty.

i have made some mistakes maybe, but they are not big ones compared to the year's successes. maybe, it is a fear of the future? i do not understand what is wrong with me.

Have you had this feeling? What can one do to fix oneself?

I don't want to do 90% of the things I do. I just want to lay in bed and rot. But that's not a healthy thing for me, I decided some time ago that I would focus on finding the things that would enrich myself and then do those things, regardless of "want".

Think of yourself as your own pet bunny. It takes a lot of work to keep a bunny and to make it's life enriched. And a lot of the time you have to do things for the bunny it won't like. So, start by deciding what you, as a human being, require to thrive. Then decide how to get those things into your life. Whether you want it or not, want is irrelevant.

You'r mere existence is enough. Everything else is personal preference and choice.

That being said though, feeling empty right now when things are going better does not mean that something is wrong with you on a fundamental level. You could just not be used to it, you could need a depression medication, or it could be that money doesn't bring you happiness and you are so used to not having free time, that now having a surplus feels uncomfortable because you are not used to it. Maybe it even feels wrong, like if you're not doing something productive then you must somehow be bad.

I don't know if any of that hit home for you, but if it did, I will say that sometimes you have to learn the hard way that down time itself is actually a form of doing something productive and good. It gives your body a chance to catch up and heal, it gives your mind a chance to work through its issues.  It's self care, and there's nothing wrong with taking care of yourself.

BUT, if you are uncomfortable, then it probably couldn't hurt to speak with a psychologist, therapist, or just a doctor, to see if there's any tools that could be used to help you not feel so uncomfortable.

Oh, and something else that could be going on is that your brain might be craving dopamine and not getting enough. I don't know about you, but whenever I don't have something to do and I am truly bored and there is really nothing to do, it makes me irritable and depressed. I have actually cried, embarrassingly more than a few times, simply from being bored. It feels like low-key physical torture to me and if I don't do something, it can leave me in a foul mood for days.

maybe right and wrong arent the best terms to check your life against.
but i do think people are wired and shaped a bit differently, and then their whole current context adds up too, complicated stuff.

i dont feel like this more than 2 days at a time usually.

what's funny is i've done less exercise and felt less at home with most of my non-work and non-family irl social surroundings and still don't feel worse or somn.

Rating something from 0 or 1 to 10 is pointless and clutter. 5 is the perfect balance.

5 = Perfect
4 = Really Good
3 = Decent
2 = Flawed
1 = Bad
0 = TERRIBLE

What more could you ever need when it comes to rating something?

The problem is aggregation.

If it's a singular score to inform the reader as a summary of a specific thing then you don't need a point system at all. A super short blurb suffices. "Oh but how will I compare between different things?" - yeah that's you wanting to do aggregation already, and it's a fool's errand anyway because what's better, Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri or Stardew Valley? The former has a normalized metacritic reviewer score of 4.6/5, the latter 4.45/5. Does that mean SMAC is Simply Better, end of? Or are these things not really comparable, existing in entirely different contexts, and having a number for each just misleads as to the ability to compare them? If it's the latter, when is it ever not the case for two things being rated?

Numeric rating scales aren't completely useless, but it's generally just going to be vibes anyway when doing comparisons. Might as well just do +1 / 0 / -1, so long as it's consistent.

You ever just stop and think about how the universe is 14 billion years old and yet here you are, 14 billion years later and yet we get to only live for like 80 average odd years or so

And then we die and return to nothingness and the universe just goes on forever and ever like a quadrillion gorillion years? Well, until the heat death and everything just dies and nothing is ever born again

Like, kinda crazy to think we are but a tiny blip that gets to live for like less than 0.1 percent of the universes lifespan and we didn't even ask to be born

Really quite rude of the universe if you ask me it could have at least asked my permission first

Well not one you'd know.

But I was introducing a friend to the late-70ies danish protest band "Jomfru Ane Band", and I ended up listening to their song "God Save Us" quite a lot during train rides today.

It's basically a song about religious leaders just using God's name to cause violence for their own gain.

With lines like
"So was it women, kids or gays they sent to get a scolding by their strict boss in Heaven this time around?",
"They call themselves the Moral Majority / and that is more than just a little sad / considering they like to portray Jesus as some kind of confused Neo-Nazi" and "Born from the desire to save yourselves and the fear of never having enough / rises the judgment of the common folk that causes them all to run amuck"

This band never held back, let's just put it that way.

Chorus is basically:

Being dead = Nothingess

Before I was born = Nothingess.. but then I came into existence from that nothingness

After I die I will return to nothingness therefore =  When I die I was I simply return to the same state I was in before I was born

And the last time I did not exist I came into existence at some point

Rising beasts and falling angels.

We, collectively as a species, are a grain of sand in the hourglass of creation. That by sheer will can observe itself and others.

To never have been would have been the most moral creation could have done, but we are and so the only moral thing now is to be kind. Be kind to others and yourself.
