i recently tried a dandelion + ginger tea i saw in the grocery store, iced because its hot as fuck outside, no sugar... my verdict is that i don't like it. it has a strong floral aftertaste that sticks around a while that i find unpleasant. adding lemon helped but not enough. i've never been a fan of floral tastes because my brain associates "floral" with "soap" or "lotion", so drinking this tea just kind of made me feel like i had drunk soap. maybe this association would weaken with time as i got used to the taste, maybe i could try it hot with sugar, maybe if i steeped it less the aftertaste would be weaker... but i think for now dandelion tea will be filed under "drink in case of x" as opposed to something i just drink everyday because i like it. green tea remains the champion in that particular arena

my moms nutritionist has her on a 1200 calorie diet so i decided to stick with 1200 too. i do all the cooking so its just easier for meal planning. this means i'm actually paying attention to serving sizes now, and realized that i had been overeating by a lot. for example, a serving of ramen is not the whole packet, its half!

i'm only a few days in, and i think i feel a little better than before. maybe its because eating smaller meals makes me feel less lethargic and sleepy. wondering now if some of my constant tiredness/low energy can be attributed to being in a constant state of food coma?

most of the time, i don't see the cat i'm feeding. the most i've seen is like, a tail disappearing behind boxes in the garage when i enter. but today the cat was sitting under my neighbor's car, and it didn't immediately run from me! though its body language still said it was scared of me. and by the time i put its food in the usual place it was gone. is this progress? i've been mostly leaving the cat alone while it eats, but now that it seems to be marginally less uncomfortable being seen by me, i'll start staying nearby while the cat eats. babby steps,

made a new linkedin account to look for jobs because i love torturing myself
08/01/2021 - 08:44 PM
i found out recently that there's a skinny black cat hiding out in the garage, and i've been trying to befriend it. i haven't seen any missing pet flyers around on my walks with my dog, and the cat hides from me whenever it sees me, so i'm assuming its a stray. it is eating the food i leave out though, so i guess i'll just keep doing that until its not scared of me. i can't afford to take on another pet though so i'm already looking into a permanent home for it, hopefully with someone who doesn't mind a cat that may be more standoffish than usual

the fact that its august now doesnt feel real to me, but i'm glad that this year's Spicy Months are coming to an end. it also means that i'll soon find out what the psychologist thinks of the results of all the tests i did so thats something i guess!! i hope i get some kind of diagnosis because having to sit still for 15 whole minutes and press a button every time i saw a letter that wasn't X was torture and i fucked it up a whole lot slakdfj

i like playing videos game because you get to live the fantasy of "having your hard work mattering and paying off"
07/29/2021 - 10:40 AM
a part of me is also kind of sad that the legion is evil because i've always thought the roman legionaire uniform was kinda sexy,, the short battle-skirt not only shows your enemies that you don't skip leg day and allows for more freedom of movement while slaying them, but would also allow for more easy access in non-battle scenarios,
07/29/2021 - 10:33 AM
one thing i dont get about fallout new vegas is why caesar hates me so much. like the dudes just taken it personally that i kill his guys on sight and he progressively sends more and more powerful guys to make me stop killing them on sight. like get a fucking life, man!!
07/29/2021 - 10:29 AM
can't wait to get my ovaries removed. periods dont make me suicidal anymore but they're still a major inconvenience. just sterilize a woodpecker and let it pluck my estrogen meatballs out doc

when there are no horny gay or gender-neutral fics about a character u like so you start reading the hetero ones
07/26/2021 - 09:16 AM
so here are my first impressions of falling out nude vegas:
i like:
- how many more dialogue options there are depending on how you build your character
--- i especially like how making your courier stupid will make them take Raul's sarcastic comments seriously. very relateable and funny
- making your courier gay is an optimal Pro Gamer Move
- the general increased complexity/difficulty (ie. your stuff breaks with use, stimpaks aren't a magical cureall) over 4, its a lil frustrating but i appreciate the Challenge
- Raul 👀

i dont like:
- killing the geckos. they are so cute, if you hit their heads they stop and clutch their head in their widdle hands and it makes me feel bad but taming animals isn't conducive to this playthrough

job search update: i've now had 2 businesses reach out to me asking to schedule an interview, then proceed to ghost me when i agree and tell them my availability 🙃
07/25/2021 - 06:46 PM
im a few hours into new vegas and i can already tell im gonna like it more than 4. i guess thats one benefit of your first game of the series being one of the less-good ones (so i'm told), because then you get to be extra impressed by a better one
07/25/2021 - 03:28 AM

allegedly lots of businesses have been hiring, but in my experience they aren't hiring for me. in the several months i've been applying i only got one interview, and that business took OVER TWO MONTHS to tell me they weren't going to hire me. i guess i could try applying for unemployment insurance (for the third time) but at this point i'm sure i'll be turned down again. its to the point where i've seriously thought about, if my psychologist doesn't end up Diagnosing me with anything, doing something to permanently physically injure myself to guarantee i get on disability. or at least injure myself enough that i can convincingly lie about needing disability. i won't do it but it'd be nice to not have to worry about taking care of my pets for once
07/09/2021 - 08:07 AM
i started playing fallout 4 again and this time i'm going to finish it. i will not be distracted for 200 hours by mods and side quests. i will not allow that irradiated larping thot to touch my penis and stand in the way of my goal of finally putting this game to rest so i can move on to another fallout
07/07/2021 - 10:05 PM
also bad memories of playing clive barker's jericho, a terrible game with great monster and level designs wasted on it, created to punish me in particular
07/07/2021 - 09:59 PM
GOG has clive barker's undying for six bucks.... really tempted.... fond memories of unknowingly walking my guy in front of a mirror and scaring myself with the reflection

i'm going to attend a virtual job fair tomorrow so i guess i'll need to take a shower for the first time this week so i look less grimy on cam

sites requiring you upload a Real Photo of your face are transphobic
07/03/2021 - 09:19 AM
i really don't want to get a job because as stated not too long ago, jobs don't benefit me much (tl;dr: i'm possibly autistic and other stuff and have never been able to: get a job with a livable wage, stay at a job long term, and therefor can't pay for all the things i need to pay for and can't build a savings). i'm hoping in the coming months i'll be Officially Diagnosed with something/s that will make it easier for me to qualify for disability but i worry that the fact that i'm Technically Capable of working might be used against me 😔
06/30/2021 - 09:45 PM
thinking about how i don't understand what it means to be "valid" as a trans person and why a lot of trans people want to be "valid". it just seems like a very nebulous and abstract concept, too nebulous and too abstract to be stressing over

my best understanding is that valid = "knowing others see you as the gender you are as opposed to assuming based on what they think your appearance says" but honestly, if people don't see me as a guy thats not my business? i can't control other people, i can't control how they view me. if they think i'm a girl or that i'm not being male correctly thats their problem and i don't have an obligation to fix it

what is within my control is making conscious efforts to Look Masculine, to signal to others that i'm male using stereotypically male signs (ie. a "male" haircut), but it guarantees nothing. and i end up at best uncomfortable because i'm forcing my body to move and appear in ways that i don't like (i've found that i actually like having long hair...thanks covid), or more likely i end up discouraged and depressed because in spite of my efforts i'm just viewed as a masculine woman

i guess my Take here is that chasing validity from others seems like a great way to stay unhappy and uncomfortable, and as a trans person i get enough of that by merely existing
06/30/2021 - 10:44 AM
doctors be like "i know you already wrote down everything i need to know in the form i gave you but i need you to repeat it to me again with your voice"
06/29/2021 - 08:16 AM
been doing more research into ASD and i'm more convinced than ever that i'm hashedtag Actually Autistic. a lot of autistic people can have ADHD according to google, which is the other diagnosis i think is likely. if the psychologist says something different than either of these two i'll be very surprised
06/28/2021 - 03:58 PM
knowing what dril sounds like is an infohazard because he has a sexy voice and the concept of dril being sexy in any capacity deals psychic damage to me

one thing that helps me make better sustainable choices is my sensitivity to styrofoam. there is NOTHING worse than the sound styrofoam makes 😖

i've started drinking oolong tea. its good, but its taking some getting used to. because it smells and tastes a bit like coffee, my brain has kind of an instinctual revulsion to it since coffee makes me very nauseous for some reason. fortunately i've experienced no nausea so my brain will eventually get over this.

one thing about it though is that in spite of containing caffeine, it has a stronger-than-expected sedative effect on me so i have to be careful when i drink it. its supposed to help with sleep so maybe i'll just start drinking it in the evening instead of sipping on it throughout the day.
06/24/2021 - 08:18 PM
i found a blackberry bush while walking my dog earlier. at the time i wasn't sure what it was, so i pinched off a bit of stem that had a couple of leaves plus 2 unripe and 1 ripe-looking berry to take home for ID. once i was sure i popped the ripe-looking berry into my mouth and had to spit it out soon after. it was so fucking bitter i couldn't bring myself to keep chewing. i don't know if it happened to be a bad berry or if it actually wasn't ripe yet or what. it was the only black berry on the bush so that could be it. i'll give it some more time before attempting to eat any more.
06/23/2021 - 01:40 PM
today i learned about hwajeon and i am now obsessed. i am going to make some soon, just have to decide which flowers to use...
06/21/2021 - 09:53 PM
thanks to being more observant due to antidepressants, my edible plant field guide and the internet, i've been getting better at IDing the plants around me. i had known dandelion and clover were edible, but the amount of wild food besides those two just growing around for free is crazy! some of it even tastes pretty good raw, ie. mulberries.

a lot of it is either not tasty but not offensive, or something i wouldn't eat without preparing somehow, such as the aforementioned dandelion.

and of course, a lot of it also tastes pretty terrible and i'd ony eat it if i were desperate, like the mock strawberry. these are particularly offensive because the berry looks so cute and delicious, and it of course reminds you of a juicy strawberry. but when you bite into it, its: dry, flavorless, and has a bad mouthfeel.
06/19/2021 - 11:11 AM
i've been reading the first two Foxfire books and they're pretty amazing! makes me wanna go out and live in the middle of nowhere even more than i did before
06/18/2021 - 08:58 PM
just realized that "Lofi Girl" sounds way too similar to "Blowfly Girl".... i do NOT want to listen to that playlist
06/15/2021 - 09:10 AM
good to know that while my antidepressants help my mood they don't make my memory work any better lmao. time to turn into an old man and use one of those weekly pill organizers
06/15/2021 - 09:08 AM
fuck i think i accidentally took 2 of my pills again. i'm not sure. i guess i'll find out in a little bit 🤦‍♂️
06/14/2021 - 12:46 PM

06/14/2021 - 10:43 AM
while walking my dog this morning i found a broken chromebook in the street! it belonged to the school system around here so i'm assuming some cantankerous teen threw it out of their car in a graduation celebration frenzy. i'm gonna try to fix it.
06/12/2021 - 08:50 AM
we're on day 6 of nemesis thirst... i guess this is just my brain's way of telling me i need to play more RE in general. $AMC hasn't popped off yet so i don't have any video game money, maybe watching a RE3 lets play will suffice
06/10/2021 - 09:32 AM
last thing i'll say about Kink At Pride is that you NEVER see this level of pearl-clutching over horny straight people events like mardi gras. inch resting.......
06/10/2021 - 09:27 AM
not that i've ever been to a pride event (or go outside at all) but it seems like complaining about kink at pride is like watching an R rated movie then complaining that the movie had R rated content in it. you could've just watched one of the numerous G rated movies out there instead
06/09/2021 - 03:28 PM
charging dock, battery, back case, adhesive, tools... i have everything i need to attempt surgery on and repair my phone. just have to watch a few more videos to make sure i'm doing everything right...

last night i was going through stuff in my room and found the collage of couples photos my ex made of us in a last-ditch effort to manipulate me into getting back with him. as i looked them over, i was overcome with emotion...

he really thought he could endear himself to me by showing me pictures of me back when i was thin lol. then i threw it in the shreddin' pile. all this paper is gonna make good compost!
06/05/2021 - 11:04 AM
i was planning on buying one of those pull out day beds from IKEA but i decided i'd rather save my money by sleeping on a pile of folded up blankets on the floor instead

06/02/2021 - 11:42 PM
i watched Radical Reviewer's video about atlas shrugged and i am now completely obsessed with how bad it is. i knew it was a bad book going in but i was not prepared for the intense second-hand embarrassment i feel for ayn rand for writing the damn thing. the Cringe(tm) is off the charts and i am frothing at the mouth over it
06/02/2021 - 08:03 PM
i finally got a prescription for antidepressants and have been taking them for about a week now. i think i'm feeling... better? at the very least some of the edge has been taken off and i can actually get out of bed at a decent hour and do things better than i was when i wasn't medicated. i put a table together today! i also have psychological testing happening later this month too. we'll see what happens 👀

pinterest has started showing me pins that are correctly sourced since i started sourcing them myself lol
04/12/2021 - 06:34 PM
its crazy to me how incompetent microsoft is with their app store. i've begrudgedly made an instagram account for my online store, but you can't post anything accessing it through a browser. so i'm about to go download the app from the microsoft store, only to see that it has 2 stars and a slew of reviews complaining about how microsoft REMOVED THE ABILITY TO POST in the latest update. what the fuck were they thinking??
04/10/2021 - 12:30 AM
as i was just about to give up hope, yandex pulled through and i was able to find the source of the previously stated artwork! i excitedly go to the artist's page and am immediately confronted by the fact that they draw shotacon. which means sourcing the unsourced instances of the image i found would mean potentially putting softcore little boy art in front of peoples' faces. maybe not all images need to be sourced after all...
04/10/2021 - 12:11 AM
i have quickly run into a powerful foe in my crusade to properly source artwork on pinterest: a piece of fanart of meowth and mew cuddling which has been reposted so many times on pinterest and amino and whatever the fuck that im truly stumped.

reverse image search turns up nothing but reposts. i found a dead japanese site that i thought might be the artist's, but based on the whopping two pages that have been archived, it also seemed to be a source-less, repost-heavy site... and one of the archived pages just has lots of pictures of questionably-aged school girls from some yuri anime for some reason??

i've only been using google reverse image search though. perhaps yandex will assist me...
04/09/2021 - 10:59 PM
kind of a hot take but i kinda like pinterest's ui, its very convenient for finding inspiration and stuff. however it of course is also a great way to obfuscate or completely strip credit from artwork, so when i logged in for the first time in ages i decided that i would go ahead and try to edit improperly credited pins i've saved to have the proper credit somewhere more accessible, and i found out two things:

1) if you don't create the pin, you can't change the source link. so that one piece of porygon fanart i like is forever stuck with 'cheezburger.com' as its source instead of the actual artist's website.
2) you can't post a comment with the full source either, because pinterest eats comments that have a url in them.

the best you can do is create a private note that only you can see on the pin, which i don't want to do because my goal is to make sure that the image source is somewhere publicly visible and easy to see. i think my best bet is still to leave a comment but not do a url.
04/06/2021 - 03:30 PM
i hate kids and don't know much about raising them, but i do know that if you have a child thats still in the pre-verbal shitting-themself phase of life that yelling at them and threatening to hit them whenever they act their age is a good way to at best create a teenager who will go no-contact with you the second they have a way out
04/05/2021 - 11:25 AM
next time i have money i'm gonna buy up a bunch of nonfunctional tamagotchis/giga pets/etc, fix them and try to sell them for a profit. would like to do the same for old dumbphones but idk if there'd be as much of a market for them since idk how much longer they'll be able to function
04/04/2021 - 11:34 AM
when i made this layout i decided i didn't need the userpic on each "tweet" or the like/RT/etc buttons below each one but now that i've posted on this a lot i realize the text really bleeds together without them. the social buttons don't have to be functional (maybe an effect happens if you click them but nothing else), and since i wrote this page by hand i have the freedom to use different userpics per "tweet" unlike real twitter
04/03/2021 - 10:37 PM
i'm of the opinion that it sucks to be someone on fiverr offering to "clear energy blockages" or make "prophetic prayers". its the opposite of good that fiverr gives charlatans the platform and means to take money out of gullible/desperate people's pockets

if you were a goth child in the early 00s, a major formative experience was the trauma of having your johnny the homicidal maniac comics confiscated at school
03/31/2021 - 12:37 PM
20 years ago nickelodeon looked at the creator of johnny the homicidal maniac and said "yeah, lets allow this man to write a children's cartoon"

just saw that james charles has been messaging underage boys so i suppose now is a good time to impart the lesson i've learned from my years of enjoying content:

go into every single book, movie, youtube video, etc with the assumption that the creator/s of that thing are terrible people. assume they've done horrible things that you don't know about. that way you just enjoy the thing in isolation, without getting attached to the creator/s, which accomplishes two things:

1) it keeps you from getting as disappointed in them when you learn about their behavior because you're already prepared for it, and
2) prevents a situation where you are so in love with them that you ignore evidence of bad behavior or attack those who come forward about it

if anyone is interested in how i've been doing irl, here's a fun fact: i've only managed to shower once in the past almost-a-year

friendship ended with shower, now hand sanitizer on my armpits is my new best friend

oh anyone remember that kid who got thousands of dollars for doing a kickstarter to make a chicken salad sandwich or something. maybe i could do the same thing but with soap

preface: since i'm male and like mlp, i guess that means i'm a "Brony". as a brony, i must have a cartoon horse waifu. that waifu is definitely Princess Luna.

so, here's my weird nitpick: so many of the luna toys out there get her colors all wrong. she's predominately varying shades of blue with very little purple, but the toys are always making her a weird shade of purple. even stranger, the upcoming bishojo statue gets the colorscheme of her pony self correct but puts a ton of purple on her human self, particularly the hair. even if i had 100+ bucks to spend on waifu plastic i wouldn't because of the miscolored hair. (also i don't really like her dress but i can't really articulate why at this time)

one of my biggest regrets in life is the time i somehow ended up at a fancy dinner sitting at a table with some Real Fucking Richies and i didn't do everything in my power to piss them off or gross them out. [dead name] was a polite and timid young girl afraid to make a fool of herself and embarrass her too-old-for-her boyfriend, [chosen name] would've at LEAST chewed with his mouth open while giving them a detailed retelling of the pony cum jar project while they tried to eat
05/19/2020 - 07:21 PM
as frustrating as it was to make, im glad i made my own twitter clone. this way my exposure to the varied and numerous flavors of unbearable horseshit that site expels is reduced significantly. this isnt in response to anything recent or in particular, i just mean in general. dumping my thoughts here instead of opening that hell app means im much less likely to see something that will piss me off, trigger me or make me want to ctrl+alt+del in real life. those are really the only three things social media does well which is a shame considering the potential it has to improve people's lives
05/18/2020 - 06:47 PM
trying to remember what it was like to experience video games as a child when they were new to me, and just a new medium in general.. being blown away by N64/PS1 graphics, having no expectations because i had nothing to form expectations from, even terrible games (ie. fucking bubsy) were magical in their own way
