Hello sushi, do you own a car?

I just bought Audi A4 B5 1.6 and it is mad fun.

Would you recommend one of these? I think they really look fantastic but was put off by how slow they are. Not really 'the new CRX'

Definitely not the new CRX SiR, more of a CRX Hf.

Honestly best I can say is see if you can try one yourself, it's not very powerful but when you're actually driving one it feels good, fun to rev out and has the low down electric motor push to spin tyres. It's still more of a handling car than a power car, coming from a Miata I have no regrets, but coming from a more powerful car you may not like it.

It definitely makes tradeoff between power and econonomy, and for me using it as as daily it sits in a nice medium, but if you're just in it for performance there's probably better cars.
Even if you supercharged it (180-200hp safe) you probably coulda just bought a similar age Type-R for the same power with a similar or better handling chassis, even if you lose that short wheel base fun and good looks of the CR-Z.

Let's tell each other about strangers doing things that made you feel comfy.

Recently I went to the laundry room to clean some clothes. I like to hang around in the laundry room and play video games and keep an eye on my clothes because I don't trust people not to take them out of the machine.
Sitting at the table was a man wearing a US Marines (or some other military) cap, I guess he was a veteran but I didn't ask. He had a creaky old laptop on the table and was playing a Christmas themed hidden objects game.

Pic unrelated.

I don't really know if comfy is the correct word, but like a year ago i was in the bus with my earphones on, and also the guy sitting next to mine.
I play piano since I'm a kid, and Ihave the habit of start playing an imaginary piano every time I'm listening a song that I already know how to play it. I think at the time I was listening to Bach, so I was trying to resist the temptation of doing that autistic shit, when suddenly the guy next to mine started doing that exact thing. That was odd af, so I decided to do it too, thereby we spend the whole trip (about 30 minutes) playing our imaginaries pianos, and sometimes laughing, but we didn't talk to each other. I kinda regret it cause he seemed pretty based.

Boredom is always pretty weird. As someone else said, usually if you're truly bored, it's because you've put yourself in a position where everything just feels the same, everyday is a routine and there's no real distinction between them. If someone asked how your week was, could you really go in-depth with it, or was it all just a blur? It's pretty scary to think about tbh, like if someone asked me what I did today, I'd have to think really hard because of how easily the time slipped away, and not because I was doing something interesting that's for sure. Lately I've been trying to push myself to get into drawing, hopefully that makes thing a bit more interesting for myself :) Hopefully you find something else that'll free you from that blurred phase.

Depends on how long you think you would need to be away from a real kitchen with ingredients?

If it was just a handful of days and I had the money, I would get some MRE type meals, because they have the heat source to cook it with integrated into the kit, lugging about some type of hobo stove or something could be a bother, especially if you have no experience using it.

If you were going to be heading into the wild (regardless if urban or forest kind of wild) for a while, like weeks, then I'd get some type of portable kitchen unit that runs on some heat source that is both inexpensive and not too weighty, like maybe the gel type fuel (think its called FireDragon? same company makes lightweight portable stoves to burn it in). And then a large suitable container for water (need to be enough both for drinking and cooking liquids), and then some spices, some red lentils (cooks fast enough for portable stoves) and whatever else you could put in lentil stew that stores easily during travel circumstances. E.g. rice, spices, millets, oats (nice to cook on its own to change up things, just lentils gets boring).
That should be a very efficient way to survive, a weeks worth of food couldnt cost more than 10 bucks, if you dont account for the price of the spices. Fuel and the portable kitchen thing shouldnt be more than something like 10-20 bucks max either, if you're buying it at a store with sane prices.

If you are going to be homeless for a while I wouldn't put your primary focus on food. Shelters and churches are very generous and many people tend to gain weight while sleeping rough. That said shelters aren't very pleasant places to stay.

If it is short-term innawoods for a few weeks solid fuel as >>11696 said is a good idea, I'd also recommend wood gas stoves. Much more efficient and produces almost no smoke compared to campfires/conventional wood stoves, a Silverfire is around $30. Do get a concealment cover for your tent, getting harassed by cops and rude people are going to be something you have to deal with.

Good luck sushi.

I think there's two kinds of good smells. First are just legitimately good smells, like fresh coffee or a forest after rain. Second are smells that on their own are average but are associated with memories of a good or happy time in your life. I have some cheap cologne I no longer wear but still keep in the restroom and whiff every once in a while to bring back memories of younger days staying out late with friends.

I love different smells. My favorite incense would probably have to be sandalwood. Sage smells pretty nice too and has a cleaning effect…

When I first bought my bed it had a very earthy smell that I want to replicate to this day. Its a fully organic 50/50 wool cotton futon.

perfumes and stuff change their smell over time coz of the volatile ingredients that eventually dissipate. so if that cologne is like 2 years old or something since you opened it, it's probably changed a bit.

How do you stay motivated? I feel like I have such high aspirations but never the motivation to put the effort in to anything. Everything takes time, and the only thing I put time in to is my career, which ends up feeling self defeating. I have the funds to do anything I want and I end up doing the same thing over and over to ease my anxiety.

I guess my question boils down to "Those who found something to pour their soul into, how did you manage to focus on that above all else?"

Thanks for the input friends!

I've found getting up early, dispite feeling very unnatural for me is pretty good. It's much nicer having two hours before work for a hobby than two hours after work. After work I just want to eat, listen to music and do something mindless.
I've found I've stuck to things pretty well, and gotten good at some of them, but I'm individualistic, so the projects I work on can't be as large as collaborations.

might be ADHD/ADD or some shit, but when I'm unfocused, I tend to waste time doing nothing or close to nothing. technically while I haven't solved the core issue, I manage to cope by procrastinating from thing I want to do, with another thing I want to do that is a different subject/interest but still productive. this way im replacing one good thing with a different good thing, rather than wasting time, but it still lets me have the sense of escape from the initial thing im avoiding for whatever reason. then ill get bored and go back to it at a reasonable time when my mind is fresher

You first have to know what you want to do and why you want to do it. If you want to learn a new language you need to come up with solid reasons for learning a new language. Then while you're learning the language continue to remind yourself the benefits and purpose behind it. If you try to do things on a whim without knowing truly why you want to do them you will quickly lose motivation.

Another thing is that sticking to a schedule and making your efforts a habit greatly reduces the difficulty. By conditioning yourself to make an effort consistently the effort becomes automatic and eventually you don't even need any rational motivation to make the effort. Remember to start out small too, if you try to make a whole bunch of difficult habits at the start you will most likely give up sooner.

I personally use this website (https://habitica.com) as a tool to condition habits. Essentially it rewards you with currency/exp when you complete an activity. The currency can be used on either in-game rpg items to strengthen your character or you can set up a system to exchange it for real-life rewards (like chocolate/candy/whatever you consider to rewarding).

It may be a chicken and egg situation, but browsing imageboards (or rebbit or sozial media) is bad for you. It is addictive behaviour which leads to not being able to do meaningful stuff because you either don't see the point or simply keep coming back for the dopamine. Not seeing the point, bt , is because the dopamine reward is higher here, eclipsing the benefits for which you need to keep a sustained effort, truly eaningful activities have delayed gratification, while addictive behaviour often relies on immediate gratifocation.
It is chicken-and-egg because you might know this already and you probably get bored browsing the internet, but your dopa ine receptors are conditioned to come back, making you feel bad because you just spent your time boring yourself.

Hey roll, any effort you put towards your goals is cumulative. You don’t have to be completely devoted to a hobby or skill to make progress in it.

I keep track of how long I write. My log was very helpful in the beginning to reinforce my habits. Previous attempts at writing failed because every time I came back after a break, I was demotivated by the feeling of constantly starting from square one. Once I started recording my hours, even if I broke the habit for a few days, the log reassured me that I was not only capable of progress, but I had grown a lot since I started. The most important thing is to make your interest something that you come back to. Maintaining records encourages this kind of long term awareness.

This happened once when I was in college and was riding my bike somewhere. While I was stopped at a light, a girl from one of my classes, who was on foot, recognized me and started a conversation. When the light changed, I automatically started riding away while I was in the middle of a sentence, without even thinking about it until I was already pretty far ahead of her.

This is one of my only embarrassing memories that actually makes me laugh when I think about it, instead of making me want to die.

I remember sitting in a bus that was fairly packed at night, minimal lighting so it was especially dark inside. With nothing else better to do, I was messing around with my camera and decided to send a picture of the floor, telling my friend I was on the bus coming home. Well for whatever reason the light setting was enabled (honestly have no idea how this happened, I never turn that on) and I didn't notice so I ended up flash banging the whole seat row in front of me. Happened years ago, still keeps me up at night.

Yesterday I went to a nearby cafe while waiting for my driving test. All the tables were occupied so I thought I'd sit together with a girl who also waited for the test. We just sat there for half an hour and talked for less than a minute. Pretty sure she found it creepy that I'm really fidgety when in public.

She ended up paying the drink for me after trying to do so myself.

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?
