Let's have a thread for friendly ladying about life's little pains.
After 10 or so years of my right jaw clicking when opening and closing, I got a sudden pain and now my jaw doesn't click anymore. Thing is, I can only open my mouth about half of what I used to be able to. Seeing the dentist on Thursday but feeling some despair. Not in terrible pain though, just some soreness.

What's bothering you?

I dunno about the reading quality thing; if I was truly focused on reading quality I'd just get a paper book. The only thing that matters to me reading a book digitally is getting as much text on the screen as possible while the text size remains readable, so a desktop is better than a laptop is better than a tablet is better than a phone. I just binged Wheel of Time as an ebook, so it clearly doesn't matter that much whether or not I'm paying 500 bucks for an e-reader.


Not feeling well lately. Headache, stomachaches, backpains, tons of coughing and fevers night after night. Taking a break from college doesn't seem reasonable since it's online class and all I have to do is sit in front of a laptop; it's not like I have to go to classes physically.
I have a seminar to host next week and honestly I don't have the energy to even work out on my assignments. My head's too tired to think about it. No energy to even watch youtube.

Is it covid? Your answer is yes. It feels funny to take a break off college if all I need to do to go to class is open a link then sit in front of my laptop with camera on for a few hours…

I have a Kobo Libra H2O for reading. I was about 160 bucks, and I love it for reading fiction. It's a completely different experience from reading with an lcd (or similar) screen, and reasonably affordable. I have a couple hundred books on it atm.

Not so good for reading pdfs due to the slow refresh rate of eink displays, but for regular books, it's great. Definitely replaces printed fiction for me. Stock pic related.


My sleep schedule got screwed over again. It's 5:30 am and can't go to sleep.
Also I feel lonely again

What are you having to drink, fellow rolls?

I went out for dinner tonight and had a few different drinks: a cocktail called Chuck Norris which was bourbon, ginger and lemon; two different drinks in a jar; one spiced rum, pineapple, lime and ginger ale, and the other bourbon, orange, cinnamon and ginger ale. Finished off with some sake. Delicious times all round.

Hot toddy bro


I'm definitely going to buy some really malty beer today. Still on vacation for another week… Wanna get a huuuuge bottle of something I haven't tried. Or default to more Chimay like usual.

I should really get a blender. Smoothies are very expensive premade, but with a blender, I'd drown in that stuff.


File: 1610344856152.jpg (107.71 KB, 580x885, Goudenband.jpg)

I don't think I've ever had that one, but I love Belgian beers. Pic related is really really good and they sell it in big 750ml bottles.


I checked, they don't have it here. Shame. They have the red Liefmans Kriek Brut, but that seems to be the only one. Booo.

I'm going to be moving out to an apartment soon. I'll be living on my own for the first time. What are some tips and things I should do to get ready?
11 posts and 7 image replies omitted. Click reply to view.


Thanks for the advice everyone!

I'm living with a roommate at the moment and I manage most of my own things so that isn't too much of a problem. What is scary is that I'm moving to a completely different part of town that I'm not familiar with. I don't even know where to get groceries yet. The freedom I'll very much enjoy, though. Feels like a new start.

I'd love to but no cats allowed…

I'm pretty good on the food situation. I already do plan my meals but a spice/herb garden sounds like a really cool idea.

I have most of the furniture I need besides maybe a couch but I definitely want to make the place feel like home. Other place's I've lived I never felt like I had control over my environment, even my room, so here I'm going to make it as comfy as possible. For the moment though I'm going to just manage with what I already have. I am however making a list of small things to buy and plunger is near the top.

Post too long. Click here to view the full text.


moved out my parents' place last year into my own apartment with my girlfriend
a few things that have helped tremendously over the last year being here:

>buy an electric kettle if you don't have one for when you're short on time and want oatmeal, ramen, tea, instant coffee, cocoa, etc. without having to wait for a pot to boil or prefer using boiled water over microwave for certain food.

>if you have a thrift store/goodwill in town, check their furniture section. sometimes, goodwills especially, thrift stores get "corporate donations" from stores like target that include brand-new or like-new furniture (such as lamps, shelves, chairs) that were either under surplus or acceptable quality returns.

>use storage organizers like mad. if your bed frame is tall enough, under-bed bags (the non-vacuum ones) are cheap and can fit comforters, extra blankets, pillows, and more. buy racks for your cupboards to separate dishes or food and get more usable space. "furinno" brand on amazon is a good resource for decent budget shelves and other furniture if you don't mind the cheap looks.

>if you have an on-site laundry room and it requires quarters but there's no change machine on the premises, look for a couple reliable places to exchange for them as soon as possible. there may be times where you need to wash some clothes/towels at 11pm when most places are closed and you lack enough change to do a load or don't know of any alternative places when your usual place is closed/out of order.


Lots of good advice in this thread.
I would say it's good to have a first aid kit on hand so you don't have to go out to the store in case you cut yourself.
A flashlight or two for if the power goes out.
Also, packs of wet wipes are great for wiping down pretty much anything that's dusty or dirty.

I moved from a not so big but very modern city to the countryside some years ago to do medicine college. In the end I didn't like it, but there were some important developments on my life and learning to live by my own in a house with strangers was valuable, but holy fuck what annoying deceptive people, it gets worse that at the countryside people think they have to take care of your life. It got lonely that everybody valuable was far away and controlling strangers were near, but the freedom was good, with time i learned to not care about the countryside silly social customs.
Living on your own is good to understand your own agency over your life. It's always good to take hobbies that will help you decorate your place and fill it with things that make you happy. I made the mistake of living on a plain white no personality undecorated room for 3 years, because I had to manage money tightly. Nowadays I live with this agency i learned there, but at rooms family lend me while I don't finish my college course.

Hi sushis. Hope you're all doing well.
I think most people are finding new ways to be creative in these uncertain times, and I think it would be cool if we used this thread to share some of the things we've been working on!

That being said, I'm currently brainstorming some sort of novella based around humans who have ascended to the level of cosmic gods (kinda inspired by The Microcosmic God), and what it would be like to be dehumanised by such awesome power. It's also a chance for me to play around with some flowery language and sci-fi-esque grand descriptions of unfilmable concepts, my favourite of which being a game which these gods play. Here are the quotes:

"They still play games. But not at all like they used to. These people move entire species around like draughts, collapse an empire like taking a bishop, all with the regard for life tantamount the respect humans once had for a six of clubs."

"The Game is at once simulation game, chess board, blackjack and match of Go. It is equal parts dance of territory as debate of philosophy. They are making decisions trillions of times per minute, making plans and laying traps decades into the future. The ants on the ground believe it to be them making the decisions, but it is in fact us."

What are you working on, sushi?


I recently finished rewriting a 50-page setting document and am learning how to into Illustrator. I don't really know if that counts as creative though.


I though about ways to interact with my contacts in a productive manner and came up with a project combining the interests of my friends and me with the goal of a short animated music video.

Have you read "The Glass Bead Game"? The citation you posted reminded me instantly of the descriptions in this book.

Was ghosted a while back for basically no reason
I think, even deleted her acc what do?. Also talk about being ghosted in general and give a homie some advice on what to do.

why dont you let people know what problem you have with them? do you just not want to face the awkward conversation? because ghosting leaves the other person wondering what they did wrong, if its their fault and they have no idea what to do to imprrove and avoid such mistakes in the future.

I hope instead of ghosting people you will judt tell them what you dont like about them and clearly end the conversation rather than to just leave them clueless to what they did wrong.



File: 1609710916196.png (241.13 KB, 783x1020, jun3.png)

Guess I'm just afraid of their reaction. That is a personal flaw of mine.

I recently forcefully ended a relationship, that I felt was pushed upon me. It was tough, as I didn't particularly dislike the other person, but realized I couldn't match their feelings and felt like betraying them by continuing the relationship. So I said some mean things in hope that by sparking their anger, they could overcome the sadness more easily.

When I was in elementary school, I had a close friend. We goofed around all day and were hero buddies fighting imaginary dragons in the school yard. One day he announced, that his family was relocating and that he had to switch schools. We swore eternal friendship and thus I never heard of him again.

Things like this happen. People are involved in all sorts of business and quickly lose former bonds when exposed to enough new experiences.


this is what i wrote, but what I wanted to say is, that often times it's not your fault for being ghosted. Get yourself some slack.


>So I said some mean things in hope that by sparking their anger, they could overcome the sadness more easily.
It doesn't work like this. If you made them genuinely and you had a relationship, it's hard to get over it bc you're enemies now.


I have both ghosted and been ghosted. I have ghosted because I started to dislike the person after getting to know them. I've been ghosted for being boring.

what's your experience with love? falling in it, falling out of it, one-sided or mutual.

currently i'm crushing very, very hard on what might be the most unreadable person on earth. i fell in love (i guess) when they asked the professor if they could step out of class and stumbled over whether to say "can i" or "may i". they went with the latter (and said please) and dropped their phone on the way out.

crushing this hard is like throwing my heart and brain in a blender and pulverizing them at the highest speed, but the blender short-circuits and the whole thing just combusts and explodes. i've always been a hopeless romantic, so this is a real weird mix of unsurprising and absolutely terrifying. i've never been so frustrated and so joyful in my life.

how about you, sushis?

Yeah but how else am I supposed to meet girls. I hate social places when everyone there are strangers to me.


File: 1609882315656.jpg (191.61 KB, 850x1267, 20210106.jpg)

Ask family or friends.


Not really an option sadly, I don't have any terribly social friends and my family certainly doesn't know anyone my age and single. It's probably for the best, girls are weird and scary.


>girls are weird and scary

Unlike cute boys!!


I don't find boys cute though

What helps you relax or calm down?

Over the years I've noticed that no matter how distressed or anxious I am as soon as I just sit down under the Sun for a while and listen to some instrumental music consciously I get calm enough to think clearly or even take a nap. And removing shoes is a must to reach peak comfiness for me.

What about you sushis?

There are a few things that relax me but for some reason its hard for me to actually do do them even when I know I'd like to. I like going outside for walks, I like laying in bed, I like drawing and these are all helpful when I'm stressed but I'm too addicted to my computer. I'll go for a walk and think to myself 'this is really nice, I should do this more often' but I never do! One thing I do regularly is cook. It basically forces me to get up and move around for half an hour and I even get a treat out of it.


File: 1590011686085.jpg (81.59 KB, 850x1154, __hatoba_tsugu_hatoba_tsug….jpg)

Hey, that's what I feel too. It's like "I know I'd be calmed if I took this game I wanted to check out for a long time", but find it hard to even run it in first place. Or go for a walk, totally.

No idea about cooking. I like it, but also have to do it anyway or I'll starve.


Mindfulness meditation, cocktails, and cooking for sure.

Something about the process of considering different layers of tastes and textures when deciding what ingredients to use. It's really engrossing, and then you get the payoff at the end when you can enjoy a well-made drink/meal.


Meditating: I quit drinking ten years ago and stopped smoking weed a year ago after I mastered my meditation skills.

Nowadays when I'm stressed, I automatically switch to watching my breath and trying to make it more comfortable. Learning how not to cling onto anxious or just heavy thoughts makes a huge difference.


Alcohol is my poison, man. But I prefer coffee these days.
