things that made me stop wanting to die that require no effort whatsoever
- change the color used to highlight text on your laptop
- move the pictures on your wall
- stack whatever clutter is in your room into piles even if you don’t have time to clean it all
- slightly vary your commute, even just by one street
- change where you sit and scroll aimlessly on your phone even if it’s only to the chair in your room instead of your bed
- drink water or juice out of a wine glass in the morning because nothing is real
- shower with the lights off, without music
- buy $3 flowers at trader joe’s—they look bad next to the more expensive ones but they look so good in your room
- start typing things you don’t post into your notes. your thoughts can be worth documenting even if you don’t deem them worth sharing
- wake up super early just once. you don’t have to make it a habit it’s just extra satisfying to go to bed that night
- listen to the entirety of your favorite album from 2015
Almost all of these are about variety. Humans need stimulation! We need enrichment! We literally cannot do the same thing every day!
The other day I was feeling miserable, so I hopped on a bus and rode it all the way back to where I’d started, and my brain, which had finally had some proper stimulation via new environments, was suddenly ready to go again!
This is why taking walks/drives and trying new hobbies are good for you! Don’t turn yourself into a sad zoo animal! You need some pumpkins to roll around in your enclosure!
god i fucking love the quote “dont turn yourself into a sad zoo animal” it has really inspired me!
#this story is actually sad like #he said he didn’t go anywhere when he died #but his dad wrote the book and put the kid’s name on it cause the dad knew it’d sell a shit ton of books #”no shhh you went to heaven shhhh” #despite both the boy and his mother saying they DID NOT want the book published #it was published #and the boy saw NONE of the profit #it went straight to the dad #so the parents got divorced and he lives with his mom now #and despite asking and demanding and explaining multiple times that they didn’t want this book out there #and please take it off the market #it never stopped #so what did they do? #they did the only thing they thought would work #they said he went to hell instead so that the christians wouldn’t buy it so the monsters wouldn’t keep selling it #and it worked #it fucking #worked #they’re pulling the book from shelves #I know this post was meant to be funny but damn #knowing the whole story kinda #feels more important to me (tags: abananapepper)
Can I have a link to the article?
Here’s one I found.
Sidenote: I find it hilariously ironic that this family’s surname is Malarkey—for those who don’t know, it’s a colloquialism that means fake, B.S., etc.
Women’s hairdressers when you want to take an extra inch off your regular cut: “Are you sure? I don’t think that’s a good idea. You’re probably going to regret it. I’m just gonna do your regular length and then we can discuss it”
Barbers when dudes ask for shit like this: “Say no more fam. That will be $4.”
Tumblr truly is the town square where peasants gather to celebrate when bad things happen to the nobility
the Suez Canal gets blocked and loses billionaires thousands in trade money?
the (British) queen’s evil boytoy finally dies at the age of 99?
Reddit users make hedge fund managers lose tons of money through Gamestop Stonks?
say what you will about this place but I almost never see anyone posting about “how you shouldn’t celebrate anyone’s death, ever.” Like, did you meet Margaret Thatcher? lmao
absolutely obsessed with this guy who is gaslighting an ant
Can I just say how disgusted I am for this person. He clearly doesn’t no what it feels like to be told that you’re just making things up and stop wasting my time and stop being childish and act like an adult while they never let me grown up like the person I should have been. They fucked me up big time and this person is bringing all of that back right now just by harassing some ants.
He redeemed himself
The duality of Manguin

this entire family is problematic but lulu was framed and that’s my conclusion
I’m so invested in the penguin drama
This Tool can print more dots when you print, making the tracking dots useless. it can also sometimes decode the dots and tell you what your printer is saying about you
While the rise of police states around us makes this article a bit more concerning, I think some people might appreciate the name of this team that decoded one of those patterns even from shreds.
we fork open source printer drivers and work the tool into them so it adds the dots by default. we push for this to become default. and at the same time, we tell everyone we know that this is happening and kick up a stink about it
English is so fucked up for not having a bon appetit/guten appetit/eet smakelijk esque saying
