Tough times don't last...
Tough PEOPLE do

I’m bored so here are my opinions on proposed mastodon features 

Do not want:
- Rich text/markdown
- The ability to edit other people’s posts
- Encrypted point-to-point messaging
- More buttons on the interface

Do want:
- CWs and image description prompts on by default
- Lists that aren’t just a subset of your main timeline
- Something better than fediverse relays
- A separate fediverse for bots that I don’t have to look at

Can't concentrate, can't enjoy distractions... Is it better to try to distract myself than to just sit doing nothing with stuff on my mind?

If you ever get the desire to accidentally drive your car into a lake, don't. You must first drain the lake, then drive your car in, then finally replace the water. We cannot let the lake win.

Propel, propel, propel your craft
Gently down liquid solution
Ecstatically, ecstatically, ecstatically, ecstatically
Existence is but an illusion

"God how is it that we surrender
to love giving it the keys to our city
carrying candles to it and incense
falling down at its feet asking
to be forgiven
Why do we look for it and endure
all that it does to us
all that it does to us?"

- Nizar Qabbani, Syrian Poet.

I want to be your favourite colour.
I want to be your favourite song.
I want to be your warm spring morning.
And your comfort when nights are long.

I want to be your favourite dream.
I want to be your home.
I want to be your favourite sweater.
And the reason you're not alone.

"Economic conditions resulting from the global pandemic have significantly impacted our revenue."

And that's why we've passed these savings onto you, the people we decided should suck it and be unemployed in a pandemic byeeeeee hugs and kisses!!!

They say I have a lot of patience. I don't. What I do have, however, is an incredible ability to let people walk all over me without saying anything. My patience for them ran out a long time ago. Now I'm just letting it continue, and the only one getting hurt is the person underneath the boots

Setting boundaries 

"Next time you say yes to someone, make sure you’re not saying no to yourself."

Oooo yeah I felt that one.

i am here to tell you that multi-tasking is a myth.

I want you to know that you have been the last dream of my heart

I have feelings for them.
They have feelings for me.
Their family hugely disapproves.

Family thinks they're being immoral.
No lines have ever been crossed.
I won't let that happen.
Neither will they.
The family just don't see.

A choice between me, or their family.

I'm just going to be over here, quietly trying not to cry whilst my heart is bleeding over the rock.

Losing my best friend, too.

I know I'll get over this, but I've not been this close to absolute bliss in a long time.
