In getting some of my shit together today i stumbled upon a bit of a journal i was writing in almost two years ago. It was really fascinating reading the things i wrote and recalling the struggles i had from back then! Here's some fun out of context quotes from a past version of myself:

"Am i deceiving myself, again?"
"i'm so tired, everything is exhausting"
"i felt so good, that i felt horrible"
"Can't sleep, immune to sleep?"

It's cool, because these each represent personal issues i was really trying hard to work on, and today i hardly even remember being bothered by them. You sometimes forget, but you're on a journey and even if you have struggles today you likely have overcome much to get to here.

What kind of stuff would be written in your life journal that you've since put behind you?

I’m not even trying to get back onto the site at this point because Moony made it clear he’s never going to let me back on, I’m legitimately just wanting to make amends now and ask that you please just here me out. A friend of mine about a year ago mis gendered me and I was so angry I legitimately wanted to kill him, that was until a friend of mine (Toybox) convinced me to forgive him, this was someone who I can say with all confidence I had more hatred towards then you do towards me and yet Toybox talked me into forgiving him, I got a taste of what it feels like to be mis gendered and was filled with complete rage YET my friend Toybox convinced me to forgive him and after about a year I actually managed to. So I ask you, if I someone that I legitimately wanted dead for mis gendering me was able to forgive the person in question after a year of seething with hatred towards him, then couldn’t you someone less emotionally unstable then I forgive me for mis gendering you completely on accident?

Not sure if i should lock this or delete, but i guess maybe it's a chance to explain something to you, since you say you've been learning

Sometimes, we fuck something up and we can't unfuck it. We just have to live with our mistakes and move on. There's likely nothing you can say to convince Sherlock to forgive you. Probably the same as with other people that have grievances with you. i can't speak for anyone but myself but you are probably minimizing other people's issues with you as well, i highly doubt the only issue Sherlock had was with the one misgendering event, so you aren't making an appropriate comparison. Probably just upsetting people more by implying that they should forgive you because you forgave someone else. It's not a good look tbh.

Anyway, i don't really have anything against you myself but you shouldn't have ban evaded like that and i have to lock at minimum. Someone else might move or delete this as well. My advice is to just move on.

Earlier this year, the University of New Hampshire did a detailed study in which researchers took a series of 'are-you-serious' level bonkers scientific ideas, such as the Earth being flat and vaccines infecting people with microchips, and the college released their findings as to how popular all of them actually are with regular Americans.

They weren't a surprise to me personally because I'd seen the same general things talked about on Simon Whistler's YouTube videos (I did feel shocked, at first, that only four out of five people think the Earth isn't spherical instead of some way higher total).

I'm curious about all of this in terms of self-reflection! Really am! I'm probably way too doubting and self-loathing than I should be, I know, but... this is a kind of opportunity, maybe?

Are there specific ideas that you personally hold that you know are extremely unpopular? That are viewed as clearly wrong by experts right now? What about things that you believe that are popular and well-supported... how doubtful are you about a total reversal happening later on?

I can't imagine the Earth suddenly being revealed to be flat, even attempting to find an analogy is like fumbling for a way to think about 2+2 not being 4. However, I can imagine a time in the future where we discover not just that space aliens are real but also that they visited us at some point. Or that solid factual evidence is historically discovered that King Arthur was real. Hell, as time goes on I confess that the notion some disease such as the coronavirus got deliberately manufactured as a bioweapon seem less nuts. Thoughts?

Dogs, cats, guinea pigs, hamsters, fish, and rabbits specifically that I can recall.

My pet ownership experience honestly seems to enforce my desire not be a vegetarian or vegan because it seems clear-cut that animal intelligence, emotional capacity, ability to feel pain, and so on varies so extremely widely.

A pet dog can get to the point in which you basically by instinct act like you're talking to a fuzzy younger sister or younger brother. I've never had a pet trained at that level, but seeing films of canines doing everything from opening doors to finding small physical objects that you think a dog wouldn't care about... it's impressive. In direct contrast, having a fish resembles having a plastic doll or a houseplant a lot. To the point where if/when I change around my apartment organization I suppose I might want an electronic fish (using Google I can see that they're a popular thing).

I've seen that before, but then as stated in the text of the article we would expect general stupidity and/or an unorganized sense of malice to result in something like 5% of people going "Yes, of course, NASA gave me microchip STDs through my vaccine so I can't go out on dates now". Getting results in the range of 20 to 30% or so for magical thinking seems to be to denote people actually believing sincerely in magic. Which isn't necessarily like morally terrible or anything, hence why I made this thread. It's more just interesting.

So I don't celebrate Halloween on my own, or any holidays for that matter (except for one, but it's not one any of you would know).

But I DO love candy! I would have made this thread earlier after Halloween, but I didn't focus in on candy until just today!

This thread is to basically just talk about candy! What candies we like, what our favorites are, which ones we don't like, which ones we like sometimes but not others, stuff like that!

This thread is brought to you by my favorite type of candy: FRUIT FLAVORED CHEWY CANDY! Whether it's Starburst or the Fruit Rolls made by the Tootsie guys, or those sour gummy worms you get at the movies, it's my favorite type of candy! Don't get me wrong, I LOVE chocolate, but sometimes you just need that slightly tangy taste of fruit! And I LOVE IT!

So come on in, share your tastes and opinions, maybe even tell us about a candy we're not familiar with, let's have some fun!

It's still quite a coincidence. You also knew of Bosnian Ape Society! ARE YOU IN MY RECOMMENDEDS

Anyway, yeah, I do have some fondness for the unusual so I look through that channel on and off, but it seems that unless you grow it yourself the only way to get the weird fruit is to actually end up where it grows, which I don't expect will happen for me often, and then actually know what to look for (which might be extra tricky - the fruit that was key to Jamaican cuisine was straight up poison for the most part!). The growing bit is something I keep recommending people with garden spaces do. "Ooooh look at me I'm growing apples" - oh really, the stuff available cheaply from every supermarket. How truly fascinating and not at all a waste of time and effort. So far I've managed to convince my mother at least to plant a black mulberry at least (yes this is what passes for "weird fruit" over here), and it was a good move. The yields so far grow exponentially, and the fruit are excellent.

i've never tried my hand at gardening, and the climate where i'm at would make it rather difficult, but not impossible, to do so. but it's too much work for me to really wanna do it

still, if i ever did have a garden, i would try to specialize in weird stuff that you can't find anywhere else. exotic fruits and veggies, or other plants that can be made into stuff

It's so patrician in here there's a square hole in the middle of the roof.

Oh, I'm not really into gardening myself. I look at it and think of all the time and effort and yes also money, do a little calculation of "but what if I just bought the produce instead" and it never works out for me in favor of gardening instead of buying. Yes even some generic things are just better if you grow them yourself (like tomatoes, available always and everywhere and yet the storebought lose to homegrown easy), but are they better enough? Eh.

Except... some things which could grow well in your climate aren't actually available to buy for whatever reason. Now we get into the interesting territory.

>still, if i ever did have a garden, i would try to specialize in weird stuff that you can't find anywhere else. exotic fruits and veggies, or other plants that can be made into stuff

I knooow. I don't understand people who do otherwise. If you're going to spend the time and effort, you'd truly want something special out of it. I don't understand people who just up and go grow string beans or whatever. Yeah, they're relatively easy to grow and with the right variety relatively high yield. But they're just string beans. How much are you even saving by growing them? Especially once you account for the labor cost of gathering and then cleaning them, compared to just buying them flash frozen, which you're going to have to do anyway for most of the year if you want those beans out of season?

Now compare that to growing fruit that's delicious but awful to store, making for no interest in mass commercial growth and thus no availability. Or yeah, veggies that just don't keep well and the only way you would ever have a supply of is if you grow them yourself. Now that, well, that has some point to it.

To be honest, I don't really see the line between "I want to express myself while playing 'dress-up' as different characters" compared to "I want to express myself in a fursuit made to be an anthro character", both of those being creative sparks that start early and should be nurtured.

Either way, it's happy exploration of fantasy into allowing yourself to dream and expand your own identity.

I'm not into crafting and outfits specifically myself, much as I enjoy a lot of other creative-ish pursuits, but as a hobby it'd be an ideal way to meet cool people.

But i'm also aware that these requirements are in place to filter out all the people who don't deserve to own a dog. And by this prospect I am complaining about how I am very unfit to be a dog owner, which makes me a horrible animal abusive person by extension.

>anybody got anything interesting going on?

"Interesting" is certainly a term. It's actually a rather somber time over here, of visiting graves, thinking of the dead family members those graves are for, and lighting candles there. The actual holiday for that is tomorrow, but there's been a tendency towards it spreading over a few days as to avoid the cemetery rush. I did my rounds today. Is this interesting? Iunno. Is this the kind of interesting that was asked about? I also unno. If it isn't, well... I do have a candy recommendation?
