I worked out for 30 minutes today. uwu
themes of night vale seasons be like:
capitalism is a fundamentally flawed system and cruelty towards workers is escalating
war is terrible and no one should ever enlist in the army
denying issues is not sustainable and the best road forward is acknowledging and dealing with them
but also sometimes it’s like ‘local frat boy summoned satan whom is a puppy and who got his ass kicked by cecil’s cat and no there is no social commentary or thematic relevance here’
Hi guys! How are y’all doing? Y’all still remember me?
It’s been some time, but I needed it. I’ve actually missed updating on my studies and fitness journey!! A lot of stuff happened while I was gone and some are quite bad, but let’s focus on the positive things today, okay?
How are y’all doing? How are your studies going? I hope y’all are taking care of yourselves!!! And keeping in touch with loved ones!!!! And I hope y’all aren’t feeling guilty about not doing too much during this time, it’s okay to rest a bit!
As for me, I’ve been doing okay with school. I feel like I’m doing really good at philosophy, for now, I’ve got back two grades and they were both 10/10!!! Oh, and I know it’s late, but I got my report card! This trimester I got an avarage of 8.4!!! And I think for the last trimester I can FINALLY go past 8.5, I REALLY THINK I CAN!!!!
Well, I don’t have much more to update on, since we’re stuck at home, but I’m very excited to be back. I want to get better and I feel like tumblr will be a safe space to do so. Hope everyone stays safe and healthy!!! uwu!!!!!
Hello. owo Anyone still remembers me? uwu
there is a natural cycle of creativity, productivity, and rest. there is no one on the planet that can work straight through without rest. if you find yourself falling into long periods of what you perceive as laziness, i challenge you to reframe that as simply your need to rest, absorb, digest, as you prepare to work again, to create again. simply acknowledging your natural cycle will allow you to anticipate them so you can finally start working with yourself, not against.
I think people need to understand that part of living a healthy life is having different people who understand different parts of you, so that you don’t overwhelm your friends and expect too much of them, or ignore valuable relationships because they feel “incomplete”.
We all want to be fully seen and understood, but it’s not shallow or meaningless to just have a pal you talk about TV shows with who isn’t also, like, your platonic soulmate. That’s still your friend! You still enhance each other’s lives with your company. Not everything that matters is profound.
I think a lot of you are lonely because you’re waiting around for someone who sees into your soul instead of just plain old lookin’ at the people in your life, finding common ground, and planting a little garden there. Even if that garden only grows Star Trek fan theories and memes, it’s still good.
It just… makes me real sad that you guys can’t imagine a friendship where you don’t talk about sex and trauma constantly, or that you think these are prerequisites for “real” friendship. Like, it legitimately breaks my heart.
Hi, guys. I’m sorry, I don’t think I’ll be updating in some time. Something really bad happened and I need some time to heal myself. Just saying this and letting y’all know that you’re worth it and even if you’re in a rough patch you will always have someone there to support you, even if it’s someone random on the internet. Please, reach out to people even if it’s been years. Y’all deserve to be loved even if you don’t feel like it.
hey since I just told a friend this and they found it helpful: if you’re having hallucinations and are having trouble distinguishing what’s real and what’s not, use your phone’s camera and take a picture of the thing you might be hallucinating. cameras don’t hallucinate.
hey maybe reblog this for other neurodivergent people to see please?
sometimes ur own hallucinations may show up on camera or on a recording if its an auditory hallucination, so if ur unsure and have someone you trust, you can try sending the picture or recording to them and asking them what they see/hear too!!
I’ve only ever had like three or four instances of visual hallucinations but a friend who has them regularly
says that the way she checks is that she takes off her glasses, and if the image is still in perfect focus, that’s a hallucination
that might not work for everyone, but it might be helpful for some!
When I thought I was hearing a roommate/family member in the next room and thought they were talking to me, and couldn’t tell if they were actually in there or not and if they were actually saying those things (and usually the things they were saying were pretty bizarre and mean), if I put on headphones and blasted music and could still hear them clearly then I could tell it wasn’t them and I was hallucinating (so bascially similar to the eyeglasses post above, but on the auditory side of things). Headphones and music are great for fact-checking or for helping to block the quieter things out.
these r all gr8
I’m delaying my weekly update to Monday for this week since I’m getting my report card then!!!
“Sometimes, when you practice a skill that you’re trying to improve, you might feel like you’re actually getting worse over time, instead of better. A common reason why this happens is that you’ve advanced from the first stage of learning, unconscious incompetence, to the second stage, conscious incompetence.
This means that you might start feeling like you’re suddenly making a lot of mistakes. In reality, however, you were likely already making those same mistakes beforehand. The difference is that you’re now good enough to actually realize when you’re making those mistakes, whereas earlier you simply didn’t have the necessary proficiency which is required in order to be able to notice it.”
You’re getting better, I promise! Keep it up! 💖
