How do you sushi rolls go to sleep fast or at a reasonable rate? I've been trying to get a better sleep schedule, but a problem I've run into is that it can take me 1-2 hours to go to sleep. I know it sounds insane, but I can't fall asleep at a normal rate.

I've sleeping 20 minutes after getting off electronics. It helps, but it isn't enough. Any tips?

>people don't tend to talk about them.
I've never heard that term for them before, but I've heard plenty of people talking about a "falling feeling" jerking them awake.


I don't actually feel like falling, it's usually more like I'm walking down stairs and miss a step and my leg jerks really hard.


I used to have this sort of problem too, I found that reading for an hour or two (A book not your phone) worked pretty well. Also agree with the other posts about getting up and doing something rather than tossing and turning


How much is a good night's sleep worth?


I didn't know it was called that. Yeah, it happened several times.

Make sure you get plenty of sleep too, sushi. Sleep deprivation can cause a depressed mood.

Without proper sleep, I lose interest in everything I love and go mad with "nothing" to do.

Get well soon! Hopefully you don't end up w/ bronchitis all month like me.


yeah, I guess you're right. I've been staying up really late lately because I've been talking to a girl that Lives in Japan, and the time difference is killer.


To add to what the other sushi said, make sure you're also getting enough vitamins. People tend to develop slight vitamin D deficiencies over the winter months due to getting less sunlight, which can cause depression in some people. Low vitamin D also weakens the immune system, which is greatly affected by mood as well, meaning you could be getting sick more often than you should be.

Get well soon, sushi!


thank you ^_^

The last time I hung out with what little friends I have (which isn't too often), I gave them surprise gifts.

It's probably not very exciting for other people, but I've almost finished preparing my garden!
A few months back I cleaned out my family's decrepit old greenhouse and filled it with plants. Now that it's all verdant I don't really have the space in it to grow what I want to. So I dug out an old tiller and am trying to learn how to make an in ground garden.
It's been hard, I'm physically weak so controlling the tiller was rough. And then trying to rake out all the grass, rocks, and small bits of trash that got lost in the dirt has been a multi-day project. But my first section of daikon has sprouted, my tomatoes in the greenhouse are thriving, and I even made the time to set up a table and chairs out there under a tree so I can rest. Planning to put decorative plants around it, hopefully they'll attract bees.


The most exciting things that happened to me are rather bad, like I almost wrecked my car twice in the past weeks. The first time I dodged another car and barely made it out of the rain grove before hitting the next tree. The second time a bunch of deers crossed my trajectory, so I had to perform emergency braking, but hit one of them anyway.


i got into a car crash a month ago. nobody got hurt, but still, not fun times. winter is tough, stay safe out there, sushi.


Good on you. May your garden be verdant.

>Billie's legs are noodles. The ends of her hair are poison needles. Her tongue is a bristly sponge, and her eyes are bags of bleach.

This doesn't evoke any emotion when I read it. Is this because the writer is bad or is it because I didn't put enough effort into feeling it?

I kinda get it. My interpretation is that Billie is a nasty woman. But the legs being noodles doesn't fit and the eyes being bags of bleach just doesn't make sense. Are they puffy but not brightly colored? Does it mean she smokes a lot of cigarettes?


>Descriptive writing
Reminds me of a passage from Terry Prattchet's Discworld #2 book The Light Fantastic:
"The point is that descriptive writing is very rarely entireliy accurate and during the reign of Olaf
Quimby II is Patrician of Ankh some legislation was passed in a determined attempt to put a stop
to this sort of thing and introduce some honesty into reporting. Thus, if a legend said of a
notable hero that 'all men spoke of his prowess' any bard who valued his life would add hastily
'except for a couple of people in his home village who thought he was a liar, and quite a lot of
other people who had never really heard of him.' Poetic simile was strictly limited to statements
like 'his mighty steed was as fleet as the wind n a fairly calm day, say about Force Three,' and
any loose talk about a beloved having a face that launched a thousand ships would have to be
backed by evidence that the object of desire did indeed look like a bottle of champagne. "


Don't be afraid to let your reader's imagination and/or autism spectrum disorder do the work for you! You can get way more flavor out of mere voice than you can imagery so why not let the reader have some fun with the details? There's only so many things that you can compare weak legs to but there's all kinds of different people who could try to describe the same thing:

>Billie's shit is fucked all the fuck to hell and she should probably see a doctor regarding said fuckedness at sometime within the near future.

>Billie is looking like a 200lb. bag of oof and she's walking like one, too.

>Literally everything about Billie is currently either gross, pathetic or all of the above. It's hysterical.

Treat your story like a conversation. How people respond to you affects how they respond to what you have to say. Your personality is just another tool of communication and it takes an engaging narrator to relay an engaging narrative.

Time for scorched earth..


Large words usually have more specific connotations than smaller ones. They demand and create specific contexts to be used. "Big" and "large" almost always work, but "gargantuan" means something specific, and sometimes you don't want specific. In fact, unless you specifically want specificity, you probably don't need it.

when I was studying korean, I used to hate kpop and even did a korean class report on why it sucked
then AOA got kind of popular and while the sex appeal drew me in i began to unironically enjoy their songs
then I discovered IU, and by now i unironically enjoy a ton of girl groups' music
i don't listen to the male stuff though, i guess the sex appeal is a part of the attraction for me


I only like gen 2

It is just sad that there is no hope for snow this Christmas. It does not really feel so special without it. Surprisingly, a lot of people I talked to said that they prefer it that way - what is your opinion, sushi? Or maybe you live in a land of permanent snow or endless deserts, so that problem does not concert you at all?

Let's move up north, Sushi!


I miss when the snow was taller than my house :(


The process is natural, but its been exacerbated by all the pollution and might snowball (heh) if people can't be practical about the solutions and do their own part in solving it. There's some hope though, technologies are being developed that MIGHT reverse the trend. Major polluters like china are in the process of moving to clean energy like nuclear. some companies are setting up carbon scrubbers to take the co2 out of the air. etc.

Green groups have unfortunately (like PETA) become groups that _complain_ about the current climate condition, instead of doing something to _fix_ it. That upsets me more than anything about this: the hijacking of scientifically based concerns by dumb advocates who can't tell fission from fusion, and will spend all day telling you why we're all gonna die, but couldn't name a single working solution that doesn't require everyone going into breadlines.

Hope is what we got though sushi roll. Try to stay cheery, things might turn around in the end. The future is our oyster.


I used to live in a place that had snow on Christmas, not a lot but it was nice. Now I live somewhere blisteringly hot in December, it doesn't feel right to be sweating constantly on Christmas. I miss the snow.

Pretty much this, things like Santa Claus's clothes or reindeer only make sense in colder areas which is probably why it feels strange to be in a hot area during Christmas.

I haven't seen snow in a long while and even when it did show up it was always very little. It makes me sad.

Do you have faith, sushi?

I have this old memory when I, as a kid, lost a precious toy. Asked God to help me find it, but to no avail. I blamed God for this misfortune and declared that I no longer believe.

Now I would say I am an agnostic, but I think I really want to find God. God, as someone to talk to, to confess to and to find support in. Lately I faced a lot of difficulties and praying helped me. I even made few liabilities, that I now struggle to accomplish.

When things go well I forget about my prayings and obligations, there is that thought that it is all my work and not some old dude above my head. Until now I went by this and it made me feel like a tiny, tiny man.

I really want to believe, but something is stopping me. Please, share something about yourself.

I think you could say that belief in an Ideal bigger than yourself, in general, is necessary when there's a lot of chaos/suffering, but that doesn't necessarily mean religion. All the most important atheist societies and movements in modern history have come out of periods of chaos (religious movements have too sometimes).

It does seem like religion is more likely to come out of generations of suffering and oppression in which there's no hope for worldly change, and earthly higher ideals out of more dynamic periods in which people have some hope and agency even if there's equal amounts of actual pain.

What you say about modernism makes sense, but I'd just add that atheism/secularism movements are also different in different societies


One of the most interesting things that has come out of (anthropologic) religion studies in the past two or three decades is the realization that there is no such thing as religion in the broad sense of the word. The word Religion was, before the early colonial era, essentially always singular and essentially always referred to Christianity. When Europeans of the late middle and early modern ages came into contact with other belief systems, what they did was they projected Christianity onto that belief system imperfectly and humanistically, but teleologically, proclaimed it to be a "religion" - something that at least somewhat resembles Christianity, but is not belief in Christ.

So before we discuss where the origins of religion comes from and why some places are atheist, it's meaningful to discuss what you mean by a 'religion'. Faith in an ideal bigger than yourself is very much projecting the Judeo-Christian faith onto other religions in a way that's usually not realistic - far from being a model, Christianity - especially with its focus on orthodoxy ('correct belief') instead of orthopraxy ('correct practice') is very much the outlier. This is even more obvious when you go back in time to historical paganistic beliefs, and it's also the reason why modern paganism is so incoherent - it's projecting a Christian doctrinal, ground-up construction onto a belief system that's both older and more practical.

The Matter of the Gods (C. Ando 2008) goes into detail on this matter, and it also explains why - for the most part - religious systems oppression (as opposed to specific gods) didn't happen in the pre-Judeo-Christian world, EXCEPT to Jews and Atheists, and why, exactly, societies that were otherwise known to be religiously open kneejerked so violently at monotheism, why being accused of being atheistic was a massive insult, and why more organized religions could take the place of pagan belief systems [even while leaving the rest of the culture, including pagan rituals, largely intact].

Back to my point here; what does and does not count as atheism in the broad sense of the word, as opposed to 'doesn't go to Church', is actually an unresoPost too long. Click here to view the full text.


It's interesting to look at how the myriad metaphysics have adapted in a world in which colonialism and cultural hegemony has left Western European Christianity as somewhat of a religious benchmark against which others compare themselves. Especially in places like South and Southeast Asia and Subsaharan Africa where traditional unorganized religion is still pretty strong and groups try to codify and categorize both beliefs and practices to solidify their place within a wider community among organized proselytizing Abrahamic religion.

A lot of them seem to have appropriated, among other concepts, the Abrahamic notion of apostasy and its relationship with heterodoxy and atheism. Even in "religions" where there have been traditional atheist movements (in the strict sense of the word meaning without worship/belief in deities, but not necessarily a rejection of metaphysics or even some other aspects of theology) nowadays you can see purists outright rejecting such adherents' membership. The example I'm most familiar with is that of modern postcolonial Hindu theological discourse and the parallels with Christian debate and apologetics is striking, even if there's more of a direct relationship with politics considering the ethnic nature of it.

Regarding "faith" though, when I hear that word I generally tend to assume that the user is specifically talking about religion in the monotheistic Abrahamic sense, since in other traditions, even where there is orthodoxy it tends to revolve around some other idea such as dharma. I don't think people who discuss faith really mean to be discussing anything more than worship of a deity, even if they think they mean to be, because in an Abrahamic context that falls more into the field of philosophy. In my experience at least, if a guy asks me about faith, he's not asking what I think happens when I die or what it means to be or to know, but rather what I use to help get me through the uncertainty of an absurd life.

The answer to that question of course, is mai waifu.


"Fear is the greatest of faith.."


File: 1605562325978.png (54.54 KB, 206x210, qt.png)

I have faith in My Goddess, focusing mainly where I can do my best always to exert the faith. Mostly it is manifested throught studyings all shorts of phylosophies and wordviews, i do prefer the ones i relate more though, or psychonautism or just enjoying experiencing life itself. How it all happened is quite the craziest story for me.

Its not even that i didnt have faith before, but i never took attention to it without rationalizing and not being so interested in it, "until stuff happened directly to me".
