    I restarted knitting the first sock in a pair that I've been knitting for one of my friends cause I messed up on it.

    I called McDonald's to ask about my application status and the first manager I spoke to just randomly??? hung up???? rude????

    I cooked a delicious dinner for me and Thorin, it was beef masala curry.

    Did laundry today as well and discovered that my apartment complex only has one working washing machine now and only one working dryer, which is bullshit and I'm so thirsty to move out.

    I made a list of prompts I think I want to seriously try writing about and sharing with people, such as my opinions on certain psychology topics.

    I made some delicious beef masala curry.
    I restarted a sock heel like five times.
    I made some really nice salted caramel butterscotch chocolate brownies for myself and Thorin.
    I listened to our roommate and his brother fight for like two freaking hours.
    The rest of yesterday is basically just a void.

    What’s up new member? I find myself curious if Thorin is the name of your partner or else who is Thorin in this equation? Because I am visualizing a dwarf king.

    also, got brownie pics?

    thorin seems like a dog name but thorin better not be a dog 'cause dogs can't eat chocolate

    Thorin is the name of the partner I live with. His parents actually named him after the dwarf king from the hobbit. His bio parents are fairly short and also really like LOTR so they were like "hey we're both short so this means our kid will be short....let's name him after a dwarf king, we are very clever".
    Then he grew to be six feet tall.

    I only took one brownie pic before they went into the oven: [​IMG]

    I really hope Thorin isn't a dog because aside from chocolate poisoning, this means I would be committing bestiality.

    May 5, 2020:

    I felt lethargic and like crap the entire day. Some of this is because I'm dehydrated and I'm having a very hard time drinking water and other liquids that aren't full of either caffeine or alcohol. I'm the pinnacle of health.

    I also opened up MS Word and stared at a blank page for like 10 minutes and disassociated before I decided to not actually work on my essays for college.
    But on the bright side, this sock I'm knitting looks nice tho! [​IMG]

    That does look nice! I like how the gradiated thread is making a very natural, spring-like look.

    I deeply appreciate your partner’s parents for going whole hog with the geek name for their kid. Does he have siblings with more geek names? I just love that kind of thing.

    Nope, he's the only one with a dork name. He has several half-siblings but all of them have normie names.

    Then he is... the premier sibling.... the king, per se....

    My one brain cell while I tried to work on an essay today that I hadn't started and that's due tomorrow:

    Trying to not keep procrastinating and actually do my essay that's due tonight. And it's five pages long and it's about the genetics of borderline personality disorder, which is a topic I picked because I actually have it.

    Fun facts: BPD is frequently comorbid with schizophrenia, bipolar, generalized anxiety disorder, and major depressive disorder. But because it's comorbid with a bunch of other stuff that makes it harder to study. On top of that a lot its symptoms overlap with the same disorders it's frequently comorbid with so it's difficult to diagnose.

    An actual really fun fact: The majority of people with it start to experience symptom remission within 10 years of getting treatment, so anybody who says that it's something you have to suffer with for literally your entire life and that it'll never get better are either wrong or are liars.

    Also today I took out the bathroom and kitchen trash, which is something I usually don't do because Thorin is sweet enough to do it for me because of my germaphobia. But he forgot to do it today and both trashcans were disgusting and overflowing so I did it...and I'm proud of myself for doing it but at the same time now my anxiety is bad. After taking out the trash, I actually went and got a short shower and washed my arms and legs and any other part of my body that was even in close proximity to the trash with soap.

    Woke up super late today, also when I woke up I found out I was cuddling a squid plushie. Originally, I was cuddling Thorin but then he had to get up to go to work so when he left he shoved the squid plushie into my arms as a surrogate. He's such a nice boyfriend, I love him.

    I also found out what my final grade is for my behavioral genetics class, and it's an A for the course overall. My behavioral genetics professor is based and even though he said my essay wasn't very good, seeing as how times are stressful and I did really well on a previous paper and the exams, he decided to cut me some slack and gave me an A on the paper anyway.

    I have an interview at a different clown-themed fast food place today, and this one is thankfully within walking distance. I might also have another interview lined up at a nearby convenience store as well. I have to say that I'm surprised I'm even getting interview offers in this economy and with my very limited work experience.

    Update: Rescheduled the interview because as I walking to the place, it went from being sunny to pouring down rain in 5 minutes. I got completely drenched, and so did my resume. It's rescheduled for next week.

    Also the convenience store people got back to me and asked me pre-interview screening questions and told me that they would tell me later tonight if I've been selected to go to an actual interview.

    So after sitting around in severe, lethargic depression for several weeks, some very nice things have happened!

    So for the first thing: My boyfriend, Thorin, was born with all of his stats put in charisma. When he was picking up a takeout order from a ramen place we decided to get dinner from last week, he asked the manager there if they were hiring. They were, so he told the manager about me and actually got me scheduled for an interview despite me not even being present. I went to the interview and the manager liked me enough that she hired me on the spot. My first day of work is scheduled for tomorrow. The pay isn't great but it's still going to be better paying than literally any other job I've ever had before (seriously, the best paying job I've ever had was at only $8.50 an hour) and I already have a good impression of the place since the employees and manager don't seem like grumpy dicks so far.

    The second thing: We finally found another apartment to rent so we can get the fuck out of the slum that is our current apartment. We should be moving into it at the end of this month.

    The third thing: I have discovered I have literally only four more classes to take and than I'll have my bachelor degree.

    I'm the pigeon, the guy telling me to get a job is my boyfriend.

    My first day of work was on Wednesday. So far my job doesn't seem horrible. Today I'll be going in at 5PM so we'll see how that goes.

    Also, getting a job is kind of a big deal for me because I haven't had one since 2017. A big reason for that is because I don't have reliable transportation, my city seems to think that public transit is a communist scheme. So for years even if I could theoretically get a job, there wasn't any point unless it was within walking distance. This job is in walking distance! The other reason why getting a job is hard for me is because I have autism and even though I think I can answer interview questions well, most hiring managers sense the awkwardness and anxiety and go "nah". At this job, the manager could definitely sense I was nervous but instead of being an ass about it she just...hired me, lol.
