:ddg: how to tell the people that care abt u that you're miserable and need help without actually interacting with them or worrying them

the push to re-instate Queer as a slur is TERF agenda because its easier for them to figure out who the "wrong" sorts are by neat little labels. Queer is too inclusive and too covert and they HATE it.

so using Queer is a real schrodinger problem. you're either the right or wrong type but they can't know which until they look in the box and it drives them up the wall.

good. die mad about it. i'll die queer.

the feeling when you fought someone and vowed never to speak to them because they were being mean and unjust to someone close to you, and then years later you see that close person turn into the person you fought

Ecological doom 

TIL that monocultures of pines and eucalyptus were planted in savannas of the Brazilian Cerrado to meet a global carbon quota, causing irreversible damage to the local ecosystems and even destroying the livelihoods of local human communities

Lesser known duty of a cat's human: calling 'It's okay! It's okay, buddy! I love you!' several times a day

Spent half an hour trying to retrieve a box of poetry I accidentally dropped into a weird shallow river, this probably didn’t happen last year

Huh, I’m doing exactly what I was doing last year this month:

- gearing up for summer, finding new trails and nature places
- new load of work stuff with tight timings because brands want to do so much now
- immersing myself in hours of Assassin’s Creed (Valhalla, this time; Odyssey last year)
- re-realizing there’s things I need to study
- making schedule for reading & learning
- scrambling to socialize somehow
- dealing with intense urgent desire to DO LOTS OF STUFF NOW but having no energy

@neeti Yeah, picking your battles — or picking which ones to avoid — is sometimes more taxing than just going in and winning.

sometimes I see people I barely know doing the most senseless things (driving with their cat on their lap) or saying stupid, elitist things on social media and I want to tell them to stop, but I don’t, because who am I, and I’m trying hard to not judge these people, but I end up just being annoyed at myself

So yeah that’s how my day’s going, ssup

I’m a very different person at 2:30 am huh

@neeti if you press all the buttons at once the day will soft reset and you can try again

My nap was unnecessarily long, I have failed the day

Since when did people start rooting for and wishing for 90-min-or-less runtime films
