I don't normally zap myself on purpose, but when I do...

🎵 It's electric!... 💃

So I hooked myself up to one of those electronic muscle therapy things and OK SO I PRETTY MUCH ELECTROCUTED MYSELF.

After my fingers completely curled up and I lost feeling in my arms, I was finally able to hit the stop button with my nose.

No one told me it was on the max setting, but my anxiety is definitely down.

Unexpected twist 

You ever video call someone & end up accidentally reaching a complete stranger?

It's happened seven times in the last month and I gotta say - I didn't expect to become video-pals(?) and it's not nearly as awkward as I would've imagined.

For every one of those "accidents", I've realized we're all a bit shy, a little wild, maybe even lonely, but making those connections have opened my eyes & ears to people I might never have known otherwise, for which I feel very grateful.

How do I go about anon-gifting something that could benefit someone who really needs it, in the most fair way possible?

Ideas/boosts welcome


It's pretty wild having a vivid mashup of everything I need to do for myself all in a single night.

So... music's blasting and I'm bopping around in circles. Feels good :)

@Mainebot That's it. Now you've done it.

Tears for Fears marathon all day!


Grateful to have slept in a nice bed last night. So I did the thing and made it nice again.

If nothing else, I've accomplished something.

I’m only several hours behind on my first meal today, but it’s pumpkin pie so no complaints :)

❄️ Snow... 

I'm still shoveling snow even tho it'll all melt in a few days. But it's the least I can do to help neighbors, postal workers and others get to all the mailboxes and whatnot in time for Xmas.

🎵 Any music recommendations?

Something laidback, maybe a bit dreamy, similar to Cannons and Holiday Sidewinder. What is that, indie electro pop?

Seriously tho, I learned a lot, got a bit messy, but I also avoided paying another "expert" $300+ just to "take a look."

This calls for a celebration!

Hey now, I'm an HVAC expert after watching hundreds of videos all day and fixing my heating problem. Woo! 👊

Turns out my heat doesn't work when it gets cold outside 🤨

Poetry on courage & strength 

Inside of this darkness
that I love so well,
I search for my pieces
that broke when I fell.
A mosaic of strength
built for your eyes to feast,
I came to hell, shaken
but I’m leaving, a beast.
