    If it is possible, I would very much like to read the paper about male issues and priviledge you wrote Mental health is also a topic close to me, and I'm looking to learn. ..I wish I could help with the custody crap. But if you want, hugs are something I can offer? Yes, there is violence, and sickening, twisted things in the world, but however hard it is at times, I still (at least try to) feel there is equal amounts of good and bad in the world, just that we hear more about the bullshit and less about the quiet, wonderful people and things? 'The more there's blood or sex in it, the better it sells' >.< Also, I have no real proof, it's just a feeling, but bad things tend to come in big lumps, death, violence, emotional pain, and kindness is more subtle, and spread out in smaller things, but more often? Idk Then again, kind things, like simply listening to someone, and caring, or helping when needed can have a tremendous impact on someone's life? Or a heartfelt compliment <3 Like, having a good friend, or art, or simply a wonderful spring day, it's just as powerful as betrayal, or pain, or a mugging. In case you need something good https://www.reddit.com/r/AskReddit/comments/elal2/have_you_ever_picked_up_a_hitchhiker/c18z0z2/ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vr3x_RRJdd4
  2. How long would you need to sleep to feel good, or is that.. 4-6? hours you are getting usually what you like? (Though, I doubt it is) Excited to hear more about the forge project!
  3. I think it was Spezzy who said that actually working towards the goals is more important than posting about them Glad to hear it's going forward The short of it is that the crap I've had the last few years is subsiding, and I'm back on track. Even if slowly, but still
  4. That is so cool, LT! Acting sounds wonderful! But, how are you doing?
  5. I am feeling concerned here, but I don't know how to phrase this gentler. Sorry. But you do know you have to do it at some point, right? If there's something wrong there, it's only going to get worse if you don't look at it. The earlier you see it and can take steps to correct it, the better.
  6. Loistavaa! As a Finn I'm very happy to see someone learn our language! Hmm. What kind of help could I offer? I certainly could talk over Skype, and do grammar corrections, though I do not know if you are looking more of a professional teacher for that. I am 'only' a basic native speaker, after all, but the best way to learn is to start talking, right? (Quality of words uttered notwithstanding, sometimes )
  7. Well, this is a development I wholeheartedly support! (though my personal opinion is 'books are totally freaking awesome' ..so I may be slightly biased here )
  8. Ate an apple and a banana before bed ^-^ My mom suggested I would just wake up at 7 every day, no matter how much I actually slept. And eventually I'd be so tired it'd fix the sleep cycle. ...I like your suggestion better, it sounds more humane Yeah, I assumed as much I sure do hope so..
  9. I started reading Half the World by Joe Abercrombie, but then realized that's the second book in the series, so I had to hop back and read the first one (Half a King) in one evening to catch up, and just now, upon googling the author I found out he's actually finished the trilogy! Yess! The books are about fictional vikings, but his style of writing makes it seem halfway between Beowulf, and halfway something that is actually happening. It's as if he published a second, or a third draft, but the roughness, and the way he adds these details I wouldn't have thought out out to add makes it a very refreshing and captivating read. Do recommend This far I've been sick, mostly just sneezing and drinking lots of tea, but I've remembered to eat a handful of sunflower seeds, and I think I'll be recovered enough to get in some sort of workout in the weekend. I've been also sleeping in. I keep falling asleep around or after 12, and waking up 9 or 10. I don't yet know how I'm going to start nudging it to earlier time.
  10. Okay. The short version is that right now, I’m between studies, without a job, living with my parents, and I have no hell of an idea what I am going to do with my life. I have to either return to finish a line of studies I’ve grown to hate, find something new altogether, or try to find a job. With high school background.. Yeah, not so much. I’ve now done shit all for a few months, and I can say that sucks. I have a tendency to write massive challenges I never finish (or get even halfway..). So, here, a bit smaller this time: 1) At the end of the challenge, I have cut my time in front of the screen to six hours. (Currently probably closer to 11.) Honestly? If I have to ask myself if I am addicted to digital distraction fodder, I probably am. At least reading a real book is fucking useful. 2) Two vegetables, fruits, or handfuls of seeds or nuts every day 3) A basic bodyweight workout twice a week. I’ve done this before, and I know how much better it makes me feel. And if it is boring, I will change the exercises I am doing. Not stop doing the whole thing. 4) Write. At least half an hour per day. And not that half-in-youtube/reddit/whereever bullshit either. I’ve got a dozen story ideas in my head, I’m constantly thinking about them, and wanting to write them. Yet I do not. I guess it’s that they’re safer inside my head, thought out far better than what I can put on paper. And that, imperfect beginners' skill kind of ruining them scares me. But what good do they do in my head? The truth is I’m just being a coward. And I must write. I don't want my stories to die with me. (Large images spoilered for convenience) Today I tried pole-dancing for the first time. It certainly was something I had never experienced before And that made it fun. I ate a handful of almonds and a banana. Wrote this, though it doesn't really count. Planning to go to bed at 11.
  11. A nice, useful challenge. And not too big. Always good to have someones to brag to Hmm.. You think the goals are recycleable in the next 4WC? (If you're going to join?) Also, it's 10 pm and I'm hungry after reading that. I'll blame you
  12. I haven't got much to say about to what happened to Kim, but I can give you a big, warm hug, if you want to? *hugs* That sucks. It's just not a fair world sometimes :/ Lucky to have met her, though?
  13. His smile at the end really does it for me. He must've had a pretty amazing mind.
  14. Thank you.. It feels like it's been too long since I've heard words like that. Thank you so fucking much. I mean just.. *hugs* Heh. *amused, slightly wry smile* I think I might have a small inkling..
  15. Fuck. I'm here, wide eyed and stunned. Her regret and tears.. I don't know what to say. So I usually hug people at the point where words fail. ... *hugs* So it's like you'll see her only every other weekend, or, like.. never? What does this mean? (Sorry if too curious, feel absolutely free to tell me to sod off ) Now, isn't that a badass way to look at it. Where do you come up with all this stuff? You have a stunning headspace. This is some amazing imagery right there. [Archive binged your challenge thread] so, you've mentioned writing a few times, now. Is it just doing essays, or something else, like fiction/fantasy as well? ( Art and creative things like writing/drawing is fascinating, always excited to meet other writers. Let's call it 'a professional curiosity', if you will )
  16. Well, what can we do? You are awesome. And if you do get all squeamish-ticklish about compliments, what kinda rebels would we be not to take advantage of that? Seriously, you are pretty damn awesome. Really. Fucking. Awesome. *hug*
  17. Ouch. Those -1's.. *winces* I can guess it must've been pretty shitty. Randomly curious, what kinda stuff is in that book? Seems to be helping ^-^ Funny, people keep saying that from time to time... Ever wonder what it means? Naw, I'm just glad it helped. Some more *hugs* for a good measure Treasures for the dark days, see? And just so you know.. You cannot ever fuck up anything so bad you wouldn't have a place among friends. There's always hugs for you here.
  18. Hi! *hugs* How are you doing? Y'know, anything you need help for, just ask us. Ok? Totally awesome, warm, lovely cuddlehug *hugs* Thinking about you from time to time, because the words you have said to me earlier, (well, quite a whiles back) mean a lot. And because you are lovely, and so very precious. <3
  19. Hmm. Maybe you can't get servo-enhanced hands or cybernetic legs anytime soon, (Deus Ex type stuff for real would be so cool, though! ) But maybe you could pick up self-defense as a hobby? Aikido, maybe? (Using the attackers momentum to your advantage with fluent movement and joint locks, basically. Came with a pretty neat non-violent philosophy to boot.) I remember having a guy with pretty brutal arthritis on the class I was briefly on, so if you pick up something that doesn't have any high hardware preqs (Tai-chi?) Well.. who knows?
  20. So, are you going to go for an another round? (On, 17th, I believe?) I hope you do, it's going well this far! ^-^
  21. *Scribbles a note to follow you along at 17th* When you put that all together.. I immediately thought of a industrial espionage type of story. Glass skyscrapers, familiar urban setting, yet it's a hi-tech future.. You, looking at how the big corporations are taking advantage of the world, and deciding to do something about it.. But I'm rushing forward here, it's your story If there's one piece of advice, it'd be: have fun writing it. Just let it fly! (You can always edit it later. ) Yeah, okay, good, holy moly, nice! You've got a good taste in books.
  22. It's really nice you have found something that works for you! I'd guess we won't ever get things perfect, so just adjust on the fly, and keep going. Melatonin helps me. Won't need prescription.. at least in Finland you don't (Oh, Wikipedia says not in USA either.) and the pharmacy clerk said there won't be any dependency issues (as in unable to sleep if you stop taking it. That'd suck.). Working well for me this far. Additional reading, if interested https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Melatonin https://sleepfoundation.org/sleep-topics/melatonin-and-sleep (Tl;dr Some benefits have been shown in some studies, and then not in some others, so no conclusive data. FDA doesn't look over the production, so be careful what you buy. I'd say not the cheapest shit, and the staff are there to help. Unless you get a 'Whatever. I'm just working here'-person. But, generally anyway.). Having a trouble finding a decent article about good conditions for the bedroom. What do you think is behind the trouble falling asleep?
  23. Stumbled across in random research: http://www.healthcentre.org.uk/sleep-disorders/nightmares-night-terrors.html (The second half seems little much, like "Oh, just think positive!", but I may be a little cynical. )
  24. Yikes! Would scare the hell out of me. Do they affect your daily life, as in come into thoughts all the time or such? Was it just this one? But then.. dreams are weird, that's kinda their point I'd worry only if they come more frequent, or you start seriously considering hanging yourself. (Please don't.) I'd say, for now, because something is wrong (namely being depressed and stressed out, right?), it shows up in disturbing and weird ways. But not a problem in and of itself. You're not going crazy or anything
  25. Enjoyed reading that. But oh man, you're so screwed if you fail him!Thought several times too 'Yikes.. what've you gotten yourself into..?' All of that seems a bit much for one challenge, in my opinion. I'd cut the least important thing, or downscale slightly. But if you after thinking it through still think it's okay, hell, go for it! Not intending limit you But, hm, remember, that 3$ saved, or one piece of bread replaced with veggies, or 'only' 4 days not putting crap in your body.. each thing is still something. It's still a proof of the concept 'I am capable of change' You just need a little more of it, then ^-^ But sounds like Durzo is quite capable of arranging certain. How should I put it? ..Incentives.
