Do you usually have dreams? What usually happens in your dreams? Are you a lucid dreamer? feel free to share dreams you've recently experienced and have other sushi rolls psychoanalyze you

I have dreams that are either about romance, architecture, or night terrors that I'd rather not get into because uncomfy. Usually the romance and architecture ones seem to merge. I had a dream recently about being in this mansion on the water intentionally shaped like a boat where I would have nice, cozy times with this girl I really like and been talking to (outside of dream). We would cuddle in the night, and occasionally invite our friends over for karaoke and movies that were projected on this huge living room screen and make nice dinners in the kitchen together. It was really surreal but I honestly loved the dream and have been cherishing it in my head for some time since I had it.


That sounds wonderful, I hope this warmth stays with you.
Many years ago I had a dream like that, and every once in a while something reminds me.
Even now, the strength of feeling it evokes amazes me.


Me again, I guess I was thinking about that dream, and how I'd explain it to someone.
I realised to explain the feeling fully, I needed to explain a little about someone in it, and in exploring that I realised it was a feeling I'd carried with me more than half my life, and never mentioned.
So here you go rolls, the rambling secrets of an insufferable fool.
We met in the first year of high school, which where I'm from means around 14 years old.
We grew to be pretty good friends, and in time I developed pretty strong feelings for her. I didn't think she was interested, and I valued the friendship, so I kept it to myself.
Over time we drifted apart, took different paths in life.
She ended up dating an exceptionally dull classmate, at the time it was a bitter feeling, but I moved on.
Through talking out those feelings, and some similar ones in return I ended up very close to her then best friend, now one of my closest friends.
We both moved away to study, and drifted further still. We met up a few times after that, but she wasn't the person I once knew.
The last time we spoke she was utterly preoccupied with money, and virtue signalling to her fancy new friends. The dull classmate had dumped her, and she was now dating a guy with very wealthy parents, and who was absolutely smitten with her, but had all the personality of a damp paper towel. She was telling me how great everything was going, but it felt so forced, so unnatural.

I'd been going through a bit of a low patch myself, and I sort of expected the meet up to bring back some pangs of youthful yearning, of tragic unrequited love.
But instead it was just sad. To see the wonderful little weirdo I used to know leading a life I know she would have once found abhorrent. Aspiring to things I don't think she really wanted, and settling for easy conveniences over following her passions.


Sometimes I wonder, what if we had got together all those years ago? I doubt it would have lasted, but perhaps it would have set her down a different path. Perhaps could have held on to the wonder and beauty she used to see in the world, and made peace with who she was, instead of reshaping herself to another's mould.
But back then I didn't really know what was coming, and the suspicions I had I didn't really credit.
I'd have been going against what I thought was best for her then in persuit of my own teenage horniness.
And if things had gone my way from the start, might I have ended up the same way? For sure my experience back then shaped who I am today.

It's all very presumptuous of course. I've no good reason to believe I know what's best for anyone. But what I wouldn't give to find out what might have been.
In recent years I've come to realise she's probably pretty autistic and didn't really know how to make sense of her feelings and others advances back then.
The life she was living when we last met was perhaps a mask she adopted to fit in with the people she saw as successful.
I hope it's not that simple, I'd much rather believe she really is happy with what she's got. But it's hard to believe…
And of course, that was years ago too. Perhaps she has moved on, and found herself. That would be the best outcome.

That's kind of what the dream was about. It came to me a few years after that last meeting.
There has been some kind of apocalyptic event, I don't know what exactly, but there was noone around but the two of us.
We were working on a farm, planting potatoes and digging channels for irrigation. It was hard work, the sun was fiercely hot, she was complaining constantly and I was finding it harder and harder to put up with.

Apologies for the blog post, I typed the whole thing on my phone in the tiny reply box. It was so long (or perhaps so self indulgent) the server wouldn't accept it in one go.
I don't really know why anyone would want to read it, but I do know one of the things I love most about this place is reading the little pieces of themselves others share, without any real reason or reward.
Touching fragments of humanity, floating in a big cozy soup.

But, finally, I have made it back on topic.
The last dream I can remember started with my next door neighbour climbing in my bedroom window to ask me where I got my alarm clock because he really liked the sound. I explained it was from Lidl, and I'm not sure if they still sell them. I offered him mine, but he declined. We both had a cup of tea, I let him back out the front door and went off to work.
It seemed a perfectly casual interaction at the time

i want to talk about egirl fashion. i really enjoy the vibrant colors and creativity of egirl makeup. also i like the outfits that egirls wear because i like the designs and they look very comfy to wear. i like womens fashion because of the diversity in it unlike mens fashion which is very boring. i love to hear your opinions on womens fashion

If I'm being honest I kinda hate OP's pic
But I am a fan of cute clothes generally


iGIRL is best.


I found e-girl fashion interesting because I worked at a make-up store, so I kind of saw the behind the scene's of it. The aggressive use of make-up in e girl is a bit harder to pull off then the natural hidden makeup. If you're using a couple dots of concealer perfect color matching doesn't matter, but if you're smearing blush all over your face you will 100% notice if the pink's off.
Also e-girl fashion is interesting because it works best in picture's of short-form media with filters. No matter how hard skilled you are or how expensive your products are there is no hiding the fact that you have a crap ton of make-up, giga lashes, and a synthetic wig. All three of those things are blatant if you see them irl or without filters. This is a style needs a filter to smooth over the weird shine in synthetic wigs/over dyed hair, noticeable caking from to much blush, etc. Alongside that the make-up gets really melty if left on for more than 5 hours, so it has to be short form content.


There isn't an egirl fashion. Its just social media sludge, an inconsistent mix of random stuff pulled from other subcultures. So you have the aesthetic style of 2000s MySpace emo, elements of New Wave and Pop Punk, metal band shirts despite most egirls not being metalheads or references to anime, which aside from mainstream stuff, no egirl watches. The egirl is the ultimate corporate culture vulture. She follows whatever's popular and trending, a slave to the algorithm and the law of the market. What really creeps me out about egirl fashion is the lack of any real culture. When you see a metalhead covered in patches you know those patches mean something, they signal other metalheads and its a sign they're all part of a game, a common culture that gives what they do meaning. Egirls are the total opposite of this.


Are you saying that egirls represent a strong nexus point of hyperreality? I think I'd be inclined to agree insofar as your representation is concerned.

Today's sunset was very pretty. The fiery oranges melt into the milky smooth white which leads the way for the light blue cheering up lonely wanderers in the darkness ahead.

These summer nights outside always give me calm yet uncomfy thoughts about me and my purpose in this world. Since they are uncomfy I shall not talk about them so use your imagination! Do you have any comfy memories and thoughts that summer nights bring out for you instead?

There are some dreams that my mind lunges for but are too out of reach for reality. One of them is to just get a vacation from living, get somewhere where nobody knows me and just camp there in a tent. Read a bunch of books, cook small meals and aimlessly wander in the small half-empty villages and towns at night. Are there any comfy dreams you are actively trying to turn into reality?

Since you are here, this is a public reminder for members of the Cult Of Good Sleep to check their clocks, maybe it's YOUR time to join with the dark!

Good night sushirolls.

Heya sushis! Our ability to learn and grow is limitless if we allow ourselves to try. Show off what stuff you've been doing and what stuff you've been learning!

Learning the blocks of a language is good to start. I think sushis are recommending phrases because languages are a tacit knowledge like learning to swim or dance or play a video game where you need to be "in" the language to learn new stuff through it. I've learned in my own experience that comprehensible input and immersion are the absolute best way to acquire a language.


>i was going about it all wrong then
Nobody's wrong because nobody knows how to study and nobody teaches you, I suspect educators proactively truncate our early learning abilities. You learn how you learn as you go, in effect, learning.


>i'll be flying in to Tokyo
Enjoy the stay there. What in Tokyo are you interested in?


File: 1707236332257.jpg (126.4 KB, 1205x1111, study.jpg)

besides the obvious of going to Akihabara i'm really interested in the food, the city sights, the nature, honestly just kinda taking in the culture in general. one of my favorite aspects of travel is experiencing how people from all across the world live their lives. might sound a bit lame but i'm excited to even just take the trains and walk the streets and appreciate the differences that native Tokyo residents experience daily. really puts into perspective how big the world is! as an American i'd love to try and chat up some locals but from my experience most places (including Japan?) are weird about talking to strangers so i'll have to act with tact and hope i can stumble upon someone less reserved.
>>17778 >>17779 >>17788
fair enough. i seem to be doing just fine with learning individual words and grammar so i was surprised the sushi said to focus on full phrases. i don't think it's a bad idea though, i'm going to make some flashcards of common phrases i can think of or maybe sentences that accentuate the differences in English and Japanese grammar. i've been watching youtube videos on comprehensible input which helps with this as well. a mix of both full phrases and individual building blocks is probably how i'll move forward.


I've learned absolute pitch (for C, D, and E)!!!
They said it was impossible, that I was "practically tone deaf", but I did it! Look at me now!!! HAHAHAHAHAHHAAHHAHAH

I'm feeling so tired and sad, sushis…

Christmas is coming down and holidays are so emotionally taxing for me… I never know what to gift others, and being tied to my whole family all day is a bit exhausting. (I know I'm lucky to have a family at all but still, I feel awkward around them)
On top of that I'm on the brink of a breakup and it's killing me to think that I'm not seeing her anymore after new year. But what hurts more is the fact that all of this could've been avoided if I did things right 2 years ago, or if I really try to save the relationship now, but I'm just feeling too hopeless for that.

I just want everything to be over and be okay and love myself sushis… I thought this year would've ended well, but I guess we can't all be winners.

sorry for venting btw


That's okay sushi. Sometimes things don't work out, so don't beat yourself up over it. Hindsight is 20/20. With a new year comes new opportunities so don't get stuck in the past or worry about the future, give yourself the opportunity and permission to grow!

So love yourself, you've got a new year coming! Mend your broken heart and have a happy new year! I love you!

is compassion contrasted by strength?
I'm too soft and that makes me feel weak
16 posts and 4 image replies omitted. Click reply to view.


The way I see it, compassion is the existence of strength combined with the will to use it for good. A person that is only nice to people who are stronger than them and could hurt them isn't compassionate, they are a coward. A compassionate person is kind to others that they are stronger than and could easily hurt for gain or ignore for convenience. This extends to animals and children as well. Even if you don't consider yourself to be very strong or influential, there will always be someone or something below you. A compassionate person doesn't just allow the weaker to survive, they go out of their way to help those who are weaker than themselves and give them the same fighting chance at life that they themselves have.


You gotta have trust.


And put your faith into something strong.


Showing compassion for the reprehensible can be a strength. Showing genuine compassion for people society hates or loves to shit on is hard.


compassion is beauty
beauty shall save the world

I don't remember if I posted here, but I do remember posting on another thread of a similar topic. Here goes~

>TV Show

I'm sure there was a show I really liked, but it never came to mind. all the others weren't worth mentioning.
In retrospect, i could have added "Whose line is it anyway" lol


I like strong beers. All the ones I like are from local breweries so I didn't want to share publicly much

Lots of cool favs, highlighting my favs
nice lol

Wait i recognize that movie, it's so cute, the friendship stuff. I wish I remember what it was called though, I can't read japanese…

H-how is a rabbit dude sipping water porn? And do aphrodesiacs really exist?


>I wish I remember what
Arashi no Yoru ni :)

**>rabbit dude
It's an artist's pfp. favorite out there. draws and explores really cute ideas.

>Aphrodisiac really exists?
There's not really a real life equivalent to the fantastical idea of it as far as i know, but there are stuff out there that can increase tactile feelings, libido to a degree. it is as close as i'll get to the ideal aphrodisiac but it's pretty damn close.


Isn't that just placebo?


Ay. Honestly: Probably. The environment and mood of your setting plays a huge part when taking a recreational drug like weed or drinking. If u were in the mood now, good chances you'll increase that feeling.

but, stuff like mdma will actually do the feelings described. Ofc, it is more or less subjective and millage may vary. I haven't dabled in it yet and don't think I ever will, personally. If I ever do, it will be with someone that knows their stuff and can tripsit. It can get out of hands if you don't know it, I read. Otherwise, I like the idea of it. Enjoy stuff in moderation :)

I thought of a rule to hopefully make it a fun challenge in English while keeping it natural.
Will you play with me sushi?

1. The word posted must start with the letter that the last word ended with. "Girl -> Lounge"
In this case, lets call L the "Bridge Letter".

2. Besides the Bridge Letter, the word posted may NOT contain any letters that the previous word had.
"Lounge -> Easy" is allowed, because there are no shared letters besides E.
"Lounge -> Egg" is not allowed, because there is a G in both "lounge" and "egg"

3. The word must be a single English word

4. The word must not have been said previously

Let's start with…

Just read it, listen to the original songs, and listen to the albums made for the show honestly. It's really sad it turned out the way it did but for a lot of people, it felt like the actualization of characters they helped establish as fans, so there's lots of nostalgia.


moar like mekaku shitty actors amirite


that's more or less what I remember of it as well


I enjoyed it


You better believe it…
