I've been cleaning for a few days now. Just about finished now that I got shelves to put my boxes and crap on. Just have to do the dreaded under the bed cleaning, scrub some nasty spots on the floor, a small bit of sorting, and then probably put some sort of weather stripping on my doors to avoid the excessive filth outside my room coming in.
Also planning on downsizing my wardrobe significantly. Probably keep enough work shirts for the week, work pants and shorts for the week, and a few very casual weekend outfits, and one decent outfit in case I need it.

All in all, I've mostly just been trying to make things easier to keep up with. I spend most of my time in my room. Might as well make it someplace I enjoy being rather than just where my computer happens to be.

I played the game To The Moon and it made me think about how I wish I wouldn't have been so stupid and cared about myself while still young, then maybe I would have tried getting work in a nature related field, something fairytale solitary like bird studying, or becoming a park ranger. I can't stand the thought of being in a city surrounded by everything loud anymore, but the romantic life in the woods won't happen anytime soon so what are you gonna do.

Turns out patting your hair dry with an old shirt really is better than roughing the water out with a towel.

The cute cashier over at the grocery store kept smiling at me today.
I'm not sure if it was because I didn't look like a crackhead today or for some unrelated reason, but it was nice either way.

if being in nature makes you happy, what's stopping you from being a park ranger for summer vacation…?

As a follow up to this post, I started with a book on Taoism which was written with the intent of introducing it to a westerner. I figured it would be appropriate as I have had very little exposure to eastern literature.
Taoism has been incredibly fascinating, but I don't like the author much. His writing feels like one really obnoxious imageboard post. To his credit however, the book I read did accomplish it's purpose. As a result, I'll just read Tao Te Ching instead.
>What do you guys think about the book "Lord of the Flies"?
I read it a very long time ago. I enjoyed it, but I can't speak on if you would simply because I don't remember many details.
>Also, what do you think of the book "Animal Farm"?
I also enjoyed "Animal Farm". It is an easy read and most people can get something out of it.


I haven't read Lord of the Flies, but I have read Animal Farm back in high school, so it's been a fair bit. I recall it being a somewhat simplistic allegory about Soviet Russia during World War 2 (simplicity not being a bad thing) but I sort of enjoyed it more as a literal story about different animals being representations of very basic things like the workforce, the clergy etc. In fact I just liked reading it as a story about a bunch of animals building their own society, but I guess the whole Stalinist Russia aspect of the book is what really made the book. It wasn't too bad I guess.

Can you give some Light Novel recommendations?
I am a beginner in Light Novels, only having read ToraDora so far, which I liked. And I am planning to probably read Boogiepop next (unfortunately only the first six volumes, since those are the only ones that got a translation).
Preferably, I would like something other than generic Isekai #1488, but I would not mind reading a few Light Novels like that.

I began reading this one recently after getting in the mood for UFO stuff a little over a week ago. It's probably the first UFO book I've started since I read Confrontations by Jacques Vallee years ago and found it unsettling.


I’d recommend checking out Spice and Wolf

Do you cook? I’m not a big cook myself, but I like to prepare simple but wholesome meals for myself. Tonight I had steak and eggs and a salad. It was excellent!

I cook every other day when I'm not eating leftovers.
It's healthier than buying premade.
You learn to cook pretty fast when you live alone unless you succumb to buying awful microwave food.


I decided to cut back on the frozen pizzas. I bought some ground beef and a big bag of rice.
The burgers I made today were about what you'd expect from someone that doesn't know what they're doing. Partially burnt, partially bloody. Too much spicy seasoning.
Rice is still in the cooker. I think I added too much water.


Did you make the burger in a pan? If yes then I can help. Cook them on medium heat and turn them multiple times while cooking. To check if they are done make a little cut in the middle in one of them, so you can see inside if they are still raw/bloody. If the rice is soggy, then it was too much water.


Thank you. I will be trying again later, hopefully this advice will help. I will post about the results.

Out of all of spices and herbs I that i have tasted, I think there's one herb that I always overlooked at from trying adding it into my cooking. Well today I discover that ginger ground actually does taste great. Usually herbs like oregano and paprika ground only gives you the base level of flavor, but ginger in other hand especially in a form of powder like texture give you a rather unique depth of flavor. It has that acidic kick, felt like there's a slight venigar in it despite not using any venigar. The taste compounded with the flavor from aregano ground makes it a complete delcious swing, from slight acidic into a profound savory flavor. This certainly works very well when baking chicken slice, meat or bacon in the oven.

In case if you have ginger ground around in your kitchen, why not try adding some.

Hello frens, can you request me some apps where me and my friends can grow together ? Like a multiplayer game where everyone can help to improve something like an island, a home etc ?


Try minetest (sic)?


They aren't "apps" they're programs.
Please do not call them apps ever again!!

Have you ever had an imaginary friend? I haven't.


Me either




I had a imaginary friend. I called him "blue me" because he was me but blue. Sometimes I'm still visited by him. Very rarely tho. Like once a year or so. Typically when my mental health hallucinations are extremely active.

Value will be defined as anything which contributes to a sense of satisfaction and well being.

What are among the most Valuable posts you've read, and how does it compare to the average Value you get out of a typical surf?

With the above answered internally (or explicit if desired), are you happy with the average or do you hope to find more fulfillment/extract more Value somehow?
If hoping, how will you proceed?


For me, the most valuable posts are simple, fun, and positive. They don't have to be original either. It's those posts that make a place feel like home.
Take, for example, the daily gif thread. Another board I frequent also comes to mind.
I don't know what you mean by the value of an "average surf". I don't care for most posts these days, but the posts I like aren't uncommon.
I am fine with how things are. I will live eother way. I will enjoy what I enjoy either way.

It's warm. Turning down the heat and opening windows.
Sure feels like summer is on the way.

What are some /kind/ things to do this summer?

I make smoothies and sandwiches with homemade bread most days of the week. Late in the day I just eat whatever, although I'm not fond of most sweets. For drinks I usually have flavored water/tea or nut milk. I avoid drinks with sugar most of the time.

My mom is type 1, by the way.


I should mention I also have a craving for carbs.


Type 1 diabetes was once upon a time called "childhood onset diabetes", since it was extremely rare for children to get type 2 diabetes. With the rise of childhood obesity and increasingly bad diets becoming the norm, we get the vague type 1/2 labeling.


Oh okay. If your mother has type I diabetes then there’s a chance you also inherited it. Hopefully you can get that checked up on by a doctor.


I think I've had whatever I've got since my mid teenage years and noticed I was exhausted no matter how much sleep I got. I had a blood test done years ago to check for thyroid conditions and stuff like that, and that came up perfectly fine. I'd honestly rather let myself die than have to give myself shots and go through what my mom does.

Here's a thread to share music you've been listening to.
It's an interesting way to see the culture of the people here.

Whatever works.
Whether top 40 or underground grunge revival with cyber-vocals.

Glad you enjoyed it! That one is definitely a fun one ;) Do you like that type of music in general (music of that type from the channel)? And did you post something here?

i think earth-chan is dying… and i don't think there's much we can do to help her. there are too many people on this planet, and the threat of a nuclear war seems inevitable. if a nuclear war ever does happen, earth's future will likely be cold and bleak.

Earth's going to be just fine without us. It's just too bad we're taking a lot of species with us when we go.
