  1. This song is such a freaking mood. Feels like being wrapped snugly in a warm blanket and kissed and told everything's going to be alright. Exactly what I need now.

  2. Just a quick rant.

    Please, please, please practice safety and responsibility. Follow guidelines. Keep yourself, friends, family, safe. You know what is right. I know you're all tired of hearing about it. I am, too. But I'm faced with it every day. I've seen patients suffering and in some cases losing their lives to this. 

    Don't be part of the problem. Choose to be a part of the solution. This is getting bad. Worse than it has been all year. Stay safe, everyone. ❤️

  3. Saw your comment about not knowing where to start with sports anime, and I raise you Iwatobi Swim Club. That was my bridge into the genre and you might like it.

      @wikkidgrace Thank you,  I'll definitely check it out!

  4. I'm in the process of repurposing one of my clubs- Gaming Hub- into a totally different type of club. At the time it was made, I believe the gaming forum was out of commission. However, since its return, the club has become obsolete. Since I'm maxed out on slots, one of them needs to be sacrificed to make room, and it made more sense to reform GH. So please don't be alarmed if you are removed, I'll open it back up again when I'm ready to introduce my newest little corner to AF, and anyone will be welcome to the new one. :)

  5. Sinus headache again, but the warm air in my mask is oddly soothing... 😷 Maybe I'll rub a little menthol inside it haha

  6. Alright, question for our resident spaceman. What is your opinion about Oumuamua? I know there's no scientific consensus on it yet, but do you have any gut feelings? Speculation? Is it just a rock, or an alien craft? Or maybe it's a sentient alien species of space rock?

      My idea was to do something similar online, but I just never had the time to do the research for something like that.  I'd have had to quit my day job and I could not figure out a way to make something like a blog bring in enough income to replace the paycheck.


      Retirement goals!!

      But seriously you're totally right; Occam's razor seems to apply here. I see a lot of it lately. Heavy-handed astro-science is, I'm guessing, a frequent victim of over-sensationalist just because the hype of aliens.

      Not enough cryptid focus on the oceans, by contrast. There was a statistic I came across claiming we've explored more of our solar system and beyond than we have of our own oceans. For all we know, Lovecraft was right, and another intelligent species might be existing down there without us even knowing.

      @Wedgy... Did you ever check out the EVNautilus channel on Youtube?  Especially the ones on the underwater brine pools were pretty cool.

      YES as a matter of fact I have and I'm subbed to them it seems lol! Nature is wild. I wouldn't dream of diving down there myself, but watching the footage is endlessly fascinating.

  8. Might have found a house? Going to get an inspector in there to be sure but we love it and the yard is incredible. Beautiful porch and big lawn for Bria to run around in. 😍

      Still alive and working.  Not from home unfortunately, and covering 3 jobs for people out or sick.  Too busy/tired lately to spend much time online.  Thanks for inquiring.

  10. TIL about Scott Caruthers, a cult leader who convinced his followers that he was alien-Jesus, needed to harvest "positive energy" from young girls, and communicated with the mothership via cats.

  11. I've been hearing a lot about what's going on with the fires in your corner of the world. Just wanted to wish you a Happy 2020 and I hope you're safe and well. ❤️

      Thanks Wedgy, Happy New Year to you too! Yes the bushfires have been very ferocious and we're not even in the peak yet... I'm in a different state but we are still impacted, though not as badly as NSW.

  12. I've been reading a lot lately. Currently studying self-marketing in hopes of launching a freelancing gig. Working until 3am only to come home, get maybe two hours of sleep tops and have the baby with me clear until work again isn't my idea of sustainable or healthy. So I'm working toward becoming a SAHM with an income, my goal for 2020. 

  13. The more anime I watch the more disdain I get for the word "definitely." It's definitely overused.

      I definitely understand this status.

      I definitely knew I wasn't alone in noticing this. 

  14. I'm 'reading' (audiobooking) my first book in what feels like forever. I heard about 'Unfollow' from an interview with its author Megan Phelps-Roper- yes, that Phelps-Roper- on TDPS podcast and I've never been sucked into a book so fascinating. It's a memoir in which she opens up about her life growing up in the Westboro Baptist Church, and how she subsequently left the church and by extension her family. I'm always interested in the stories of people who have escaped cults, and at first that's what I thought this was. But the more I learn about the family's origins and Megan's recollections of her childhood, I'm seeing a slightly different framing of it all (though I still find their messages highly revulsive.)
    If you're looking for a new book to pick up, I'm recommending this one!

      Is that a thing in Buddhafield? I'm not familiar so I would have to look it up. I don't suppose that documentary you watched is still on Netflix? 

    3. Seshi

      Yes, it is, sadly. And yea "Holy Hell" is still on netflix.

      I'll have to find it. 

  15. Please explain why, despite never hearing how it is actually said, I always say "Washija!" like the Chinese food lady in Dude Where's My Car.

      When we were kids my brother thought he knew better than me and often chose to end an argument by basically lifting me on to a high surface (ie. Laundry shelf or high table/counterspace) and give me head a pat like I was a naïve child. Sucked cause I found it a bit demeaning and also it was a long way down...

      This is useful information that I will use in future disputes.

  16. I have tried to watch MHA three times this weekend. 

    The first time, I fell asleep. 

    The second time, I also fell asleep. 

    The third time, I was so exhausted I made it half-way in and had to go to bed. 

    I'm tired yo.

      This season is pretty lacking in its intro for sure.. Sort of a big letdown considering the hype behind this season 

  17. So I don't normally share youtube videos but this clip absolutely made my day. 😁 (I should add... Do not attempt this!)

  19. How was your rendezvous?

      It was perfect thanks :) I was so nervous at first but as soon as we hugged and started talking it calmed down. We are meeting again this Friday :)

      Thanks. Its from the OP to The Ones Within

  23. Therapy went well today I think. It was hard to talk about a good chunk of it but the therapist was patient with me and I was comfortable talking with her, she was even able to relate to a lot of what I've been through and helped me to make sense out of where I am now. She gave me a sort of 'homework assignment' that's supposed to help me feel more in control of where my mind goes and I think I will give it a try. Overall I'm glad I went, it felt good to talk about everything for once.

      That’s really great that you were able to open up to her the first day.

      Glad to hear it sounds like they will be able to help you with what you’re going through. Healing takes time, but support makes it easier.

  24. Something in me decided that having BH all day wasn't a good enough reason to call out of work, so I went anyway hoping they would chill out. They didn't. Developed muscle spasm. Got headbutted several times in the bladder. Work was crazy today, stayed busy well past midnight. Pretty sure every one of my patients managed to urinate on the floor at some point. Scarcely got a break tonight. I am an idiot. Never again.

      BH? Sound like a rough day. Hope your day/night gets better, Wedgy. 🤗

      Braxton Hicks contractions i.e false labour. They usually stop if you get up and move around but the problem was that I was moving around so much they kept happening anyway. I'm stubborn and don't know what "light duty" means, I guess. 

  25. Happy Canada Day 🇨🇦
