    the only down side of putting the "do we want this/is there a thread like this" threads in That's So Meta is any time there's a Seebs related problem it wipes out any other current topic on the recently displayed list and it's the only thing I see so even I forget to check most of the time because I assume all that's in That's So Meta is fire at this point unless there's another recently posted in topic on the display. orz

    boy golly gee. i can’t wait to go protest as we’ve been doing for consistent 8+ hour days and to have to deal w the org who has been using abusive tactics on their people (and brought TERFs to a meeting to ‘struggle with us’ abt whether sex workers are evil) canvassing during someone else’s protest!

    also the Web Stalkers have threatened to track us down at our friends memorial (he was shot during a protest so it’s like, on a bench in the city) and “curbstomp us” so i’m not loving that

    EDIT / nvm my partner told me he doesn’t want to go because of those prior mentioned things. but now i’m really antsy because it’s like... i Need to be out there when i can be lmfao

    if I were less in crunch mode the fruit flies crawling over my screen n flying into my ears n such might distress me more! as it is they just read as a sort of funny visual metaphor. no my life is Not rotting from the inside out! and it's a bit funny that I'm getting all this stuff I automatically read as symbolism of decay when for once that Isn't the thing I'm worried about. instead I am worried about all my one hundred as-soon-as-possible tasks. and also the possible process of talking to people about adhd lol trying to postpone figuring that one out til the next enormous overarching task

    my function when showing contractors around the building is basically 1. take minutes 2. support the guy who knows stuff about the building so he doesn't have to do all of them by himself, and these are things worth doing, but also god I do not enjoy it, they all ladies-first me and look to the guy for every question which - like, fair, in a lot of senses, because my knowledge of the building is v limited to our fire system - but it's a bad feeling. and I feel bad that the guy has to do basically all the talking even though this is Not my area, and that I did kind of a bad job supporting him in doing that today bc I didn't, like, ask him how he was in the debrief even though he seemed even more subdued than me lol, because I woke up 2 hrs earlier than usual and all my social stuff is working on a delay. aaaaa

    also While I was walking between buildings doing like the only thing useful I did that whole visit got laughed at by some teens chilling on our steps w no masks lol... love to walk past some kids and have them go 'what the fuck?' in a laughing scandalised tone..... like I Get It I too have been a thoughtless youth and I don't hate em for it it's just more feeling ridiculous in a bad way than I've dealt with since lockdown started p much

    i was good at making friends as a kid (read: i was likeable and friendly-ish and fun-to-look-at, or depressed to the point of having no personality which was mistaken for intriguing) and now im very bad at connecting with the few friends i do have let alone making new friends and i just feel incredibly lonely and isolated, which is stupid because i live with my supposedly best friend, i just literally dont know how to talk to him or anyone anymore

    It's my birthday in five days. I like the cake and presents. I hate getting older. I'm only thirty now and it feels like I'm too old to exist already.

    The rate that radical feminist rhetoric has infected certain discourse and how little people can recognize it when it doesn't have all-capital TERF flags.

    Thinking about doing thesis is miserable because the idea that I won't be able to validate my claims because I didn't research the right things or find the right resources just chokes me
    And the fact that I don't have access to the school library and the books that might have information I will need is kind of demoralizing
    Theres a book delivery service that will be set up somehow but I live quite far from my school and my topic is kind of common so theres also the huge possibility that books I might try to borrow will have been taken first
    I'm just really worried abt not being able to scramble up to making my words mean something coherent because my sources are shit or aren't academically supported

    Saw someone reblog an Aromantic post with commentary about how a guy might've been interested in them while also mentioning that they're a senior and he's a freshman but then they have an ambiguous warning about if he 'tries anything' - just leaves me vaguely on edge. I get not wanting attention from someone that way if you're aro, trust me, I do, but when you're 18ish and they're like 15? And you think they're gonna 'try' something? It's hard to put it into words but it just... reeks of victim-blaming on someone's attraction (and an inherent assumption that attraction is predatory despite him a. no knowing and b. being described as nice I wonder why that is) and a complete unacknowedgement of the potential messed up power dynamics. I don't know.

    If you don't want a reply, mine's in the spoiler!

    Hearing about it just from your post my problem with it is mostly... the older person, notably an adult (albeit very young one) is putting the onus on the younger to not try anything and... no, just, no. Kids, especially amab teenagers, ARE going to get crushes on older people, especially older women! MOST kids are gonna get a crush on someone older than them! This is completely normal! It's on the older person, especially if they're an adult or even if they're just not comfortable, to SHUT THAT SHIT DOWN. Let the kid have his crush, omfg, just reject him if he does make a move, it's not that fucking hard.

    Then again.... gen z by and large tends to think boundaries are abuse, so....

    When I seek validation and encouragement, I think what I'm really looking for is someone to tell me it's okay to give up and never have to try anything again, so I can just withdraw into my blanket fort and never do anything productive ever, because doing productive things feels completely impossible. I know this would make things worse, but I wish it could happen.

    oh no im getting irritated cause im trying to look for examples of transgender graphic memoir, and someone made a curated list -but its turning out that these books are about gnc cis women? thats not what im looking for at all :/// what kind of list is "transgender graphic novels and memoirs books" when its not about transgender people

    eta: like literally I googled one of the authors and she's said she's not trans!!! like what kind of curated list is this

    Miserable with how the schools are handling learning right now - we don't really have the infrastructure to support mass online learning for all, leaving a lot of students with limited or unsupported learning. And what with the devastating typhoons to hit the north islands, in the middle of a pandemic, people barely scraping by trying to support their families, and universities want to claim they're trying to preserve academic excellence? Its utterly shameless.
    Teachers and students dont all have good internet, some students have to focus on working, and in general things just feel miserable

    And all that aside im miserable, I want to give up. What have I even learned? Isn't that what school is for, to learn? The semester started late, classes had to be missed sometimes due to poor net, sometimes due to typhoon, one of my teachers has personal health issues - it all feels like a waste of my time. Maybe im just complaining cause I'm sad and miserable and stuck at home and I wish I could be allowed to simply give up. I can't, it won't be supported by my family. I wish I could just be failed so I can sleep away this period of nothingness.

    Miserable cause I can't concentrate on online classes, I zone out, its hard to contact groupmates, I have no motivation, I'm distracted by being at home.

    I'm tired and feel weak but this is not an environment conducive to learning.

    Oh my god, making fun of a throbbing asshole because he’s ‘dumb and ugly’ is not the glorious punching up that you seem to bloody think it is.

    experiencing one of my extremely rare quasi-motivations to clean/ get rid of stuff that I should have long since gotten rid of and nowhere will take the fucking things I need to get rid of most urgently and I guarantee you in 24 hours I'll have slipped back into apathy for the next five months

    also mad because the only recommendations ANYONE will give me are 'list the things for free on craiglist/nextdoor/ whatever' and get frustrated that i refuse to do this because I'm scared of people - well why not do a no-contact dropping it on the porch then- because my neighborhood is a shithole and I don't want to give anyone a reason to look at where I live! I guarantee you my damn car is going to get stolen within a year or so because that's the kind of environment I'm in but all anyone will fucking tell me is that all THEIR similar interactions in their comfy middle class neighborhoods were just fine

    I know I'm being irrational but I still can't fucking do it under any circumstances and I need to get rid of this god damn stuff
