Zoe Tate was a true icon. Literally no one else was doing what she was doing on 90s tv.
I've been sleeping horribly lately, for no apparent reason. I feel fine physically, my apartment has been comfortable in spite of the awful heat outside, and I'm not any more stressed about [gestures vaguely to everything] than I have been for months. But for some reason I have not slept past 5 AM for several days. I'm drowsy all day but I force myself to stay up instead of crashing in the afternoon, but no matter what time I go to bed or how tired I am I wake up stupidly early after unsatisfying sleep. I'm so annoyed every time I wake up.
Engineer boys are the fucking worst!!
AMEN. I knew someone who would only date engineers and then be disappointed when it wouldn't work out.

maybe there's a "not all engineers" component to this (idk since I've never dated one) but if you purposely set yourself up to date according to someone's career path.... good luck
are there any podcasts everyone would recommend about weird internet things? i've been listening to "red web" and i really enjoy it so i'm looking for something similar.
check out the Geeks & Beats podcast - it's got a Toronto-y spin to it, but it's about futuristic tech stuff for the music industry
i'm canadian so that's kind of a draw, haha. thanks, i'll take a listen!
Reply All isn't exclusively about the internet but the bulk of their stuff definitely is. They've got some fantastic episodes.

Billie Eilish posted that she voted today, I'm glad to see her setting such a good example. I wonder how much of Gen Z will be voting in this election.
I'm due for my period within the next week, and woof my mood swings/depression are not fun.
I feel that.
Today's my mom's birthday, her first since she's passed, and I’m up here in Seattle, its cold and rainy, while my family is celebrating in California. It really sucks. I left roses the day I left but I just feel so weird. One of my friends out here lost her mom a couple years ago, she's taking me out for burgers and beers and a pumpkin patch trip. I know I came out here to start a new chapter in my life but I think I'm homesick and just questioning why I came out here, its definitely not what I was expecting but it's beautiful and there's always something new to see. It's bittersweet.
Thank you I really appreciate it.
Well I am now in possession of some white chocolate raspberry cheesecake

And I say, what the hell am I doing drinking in L.A. at twenty-six?
I got the fever for the flavour
The payback will be later
But still I need a fix
Lol I listened to many of their songs the other night. I used to live that album.
Such a classic. Good taste bb
My favourite sub genre of pop music is songs about being disillusioned in LA.

I’m reading the book Normal People and it’s...ok. All the supporting characters are annoying or awful and it’s bordering on overrated for me. Was the series any good?
I read the book and I found the series better!
Good to know! Maybe I'll stream it after I finish the book

I’m really worried about my daughter’s mental health. She’s 22 and went through several bouts of serious depression as a teen, including self-harm. She’s been really down the last couple of months, crying a lot, clingy (not like her, she’s really independent), staying over at my house several times a week because she doesn’t want to be alone and her housemate is working, etc. A couple of weeks ago she dropped a glass bottle of water at work and they had to send her home because she couldn’t stop crying. And she told me recently she had self harmed for the first time in years. She has a counsellor appointment tomorrow which will hopefully help but I just don’t know how to help her, or if I can. I basically just listen and try not to “give advice”, but I struggle to relate to it because I have been fortunate enough to not have ever been really depressed so it’s hard for me to understand someone being so down without a “reason”. It’s frustrating for me to not just be able to fix the problem, you know?

Anyway, I just wanted to get it out, and if anyone has any advice for mums to do/not do in this situation, I’m all ears.
As someone with depression and bouts of it, I recommend listening and just being there for her. It means a lot even if you don't have anything to say. Someone just listening can make all the difference. Hope this helps.
It does help, thank you. ❤️

Gonna dress real cute to go out into the world and pick up tacos, maybe that will make me feel better.

So I have a problem. Generally speaking.

My friend invited me to the cottage for New Year’s. I am generally a homebody but I wouldn’t mind spending it with friends. However I don’t really drink and I don’t smoke. I have one drink and I’m good. My issue is I have an issue BEING around drunk/high people. It’s one thing to be at a house and then I can leave. But this cottage is 40min away and it’s for the weekend. So I can’t leave.

I’m being that non committal person bc they need to book it but I don’t want to be a buzzkill and just be like no because you guys are just going to get drunk and high and I don’t want to. But I guess I have to. It’s not a judgement on them, I judge myself more for not being able to handle it really.

I also don’t want to drive 40min in the middle of nowhere in the dead of winter
say no, blame the pandemic, stay home and cozy on New Year's!
I second this.
I don't think it's a problem though. I can totally get not wanting to be around people who are drunk or high, especially if you aren't imbibing. Also who would be there aside from them? Some people are fine when they're impaired but others are fucking awful and I wouldn't want to be near them at all. idk, don't force yourself into an uncomfortable situation.

It sounds like you're not going to be missing out on anything but your brain has tricked you into thinking you are. But you're really not.

I totally feel you.

I'm frequently around verbally, mentally abusive people who are drunk or high, to the point where I'm always, always afraid of being around other people who are drunk or high (mostly drunk) because it triggers me.

One of my best friends drinks, along with basically all of the other friends in his social circle, which I orbit around as a result. None of them are "bad" drunks, or at least they haven't been yet and I like to think that it's because they understand my position, so I'm relatively comfortable around them as a result, but a part of me always has a nagging feeling that it could end up bad.

Honestly, I'd turn the offer down.
