Share the good things that have happened to you recently!

I randomly got a call for a job that I didn't apply for, but the job offer is my passion (cake decorating)! I went to the interview yesterday, and was hired immediately. The chef is a cool druggy gamer guy as are the other dudes in the kitchen, so now I'm gonna make a bunch of awesome cool nerdy friends! He really liked the cake I brought him and the work I did. The pay is more than I was expecting.
The only thing that makes me nervous is that he also wants me to work the line, which I've never done, but the place is classy so we're putting out beautiful food that I'm really proud of and even messing with molecular gastronomy, which I've wanted to get into for a very long time! I'm so excited to do my best.

Giving my pets a treat always improves my mood. They hold it with their little hands and enjoy it, then close their eyes while I pet them and talk to them. It's impossible to be unhappy when you're feeding a friendly animal.

oh man I REALLY want to get rats, but two things are stopping me from doing that:

1) they have a very short life (2 or 3 years right?) I cant deal with the heartbbreak
2) They dont sell them where Im living atm

Yes, their life span is very unfortunate. But their companionship is worth it to me.
In case you meant pet stores, you shouldn't buy rats there anyway, so maybe you will find a reputable breeder or rescue in your country?

OP here~ so my coworkers/bosses are awesome and we're all friends. I brought my boyfriend to hang out with them before and it went well.

My BF has been needing a job, and we've been needing a dishwasher. He dropped off his application yesterday, and since we were slammed he got hired right away! Now I get to see him at work 4 days a week (a day extra than the previous dishwashers were there) c: Everyone at work already really likes him, and my boss told me so a few times last night. It made me heart so happy to hear people approve of my boyfriend, especially older people that I respect, because my parents haven't really said anything good about him even though he's great (my mom in particular is judgy).
I'll be moving in to a house with my best friends and my boyfriend and my girlfriend soon too! So happy!

My mental health took a massive tumble and I had to finally accept that I'd be dead soon if I didn't make a change. I moved to a new place and got new medication for my mental health and I feel like new. I get up before noon, I socialise with strangers, picked my friendships back up, play with dogs in the park, spend less time online and don't procrastinate as much anymore. I even stopped smoking weed every day and don't even miss it. I don't want to be too optimistic about this sudden change, but I hope I can keep this up and learn how to be a functional human being for real. I feel like for the first time in years I actually have a person inside me instead of just anxious thoughts battling it out and drowning out any semblance of a personality I could have.

Any advice for quitting weed anon?

Anonymous 937

>>936
It's not the first time I've 'quit' and I still want to keep doing it recreationally so I'm not the best person to ask and it's mostly the change of environment for me. I used to spend my entire life in bed with nothing but internet and anxious thoughts, so weed was a crutch to make things bearable and now that I'm happier and more energetic, I feel like I'd miss out on my current good streak if I spent it getting high and falling asleep (which I usually do after smoking). I'm sure in the drug thread >>>/b/469 you can get better advice, I'll also stick around there if you want to talk! One more thing, I don't know how you smoke your weed, but if you mix it with tobacco, you could consider working on that first. Nicotine habit is harder to kick and you'll find weed not as big a problem after.

>I don't want to be too optimistic about this sudden change, but I hope I can keep this up and learn how to be a functional human being for real.

I feel the same way lately. Congratulations on your progress!

It feels really precarious to me. Being a functional human has always felt like balancing on a moving boulder. It's really hard to get on top of it and then once I'm there I have to keep running tirelessly, because no matter how hard it is on top it's harder when you're under it. I always feel one misstep away from falling off again.

That's exactly what I'm so afraid of right now. I'm trying to use my current drive to get as much of my things in order as I can so that when it tapers off I'll have fewer of my former issues to deal with. It's the best opportunity at a real fresh start I've ever had and I intend to use it.

I'm moving into my partner and I's first place together on the 31st, and he just told me that rather than fussing together over furniture, that he'll just give me an allowance and I can go out and furnish the entire apartment by myself, because "I trust your taste". Apparently he doesn't mind shelling out for proper furniture either, none of the flat-pack stuff. His only stipulation is that he wants a giant, fluffy beanbag in the living room that he can sink into and play his Switch on, so I'm probably going to make that the first purchase, even before a bed.

I went to feed my cat really late in the night cause she woke me up and stuff. When I came back to my bed, I said "It's so cold" two times, normally, not too low nor too high. But my boyfriend that was literally snoring by my side immediately wakes up, covers me (with air I think lmao), hugs me and say something like "Not on my watch". Then sleeps 5 seconds later. It really made my night, it was so cute and I felt so loved.

It's my birthday today. I turned 26.
My partner woke me up this morning by throwing balloons at my sleeping head and letting off party poppers in front of me so that the sparkly foil ejected itself into my face aha (wouldn't have minded another ejection though right girls ayyyyyyyyyyy)

Today's reflections. I woke up in a new bed, in a new home, in a new place, and of a new age. Even though everything has changed so completely, somehow it all still feels the same. I don't really feel any older, but I'm one of those "only as old as you feel" types, which I guess means that as far as I'm concerned I might as well be 8.
I am happy though. I'm really, really happy.

Since I got the day to myself, I'm going to finish pulling on my tights, dry my hair, slam my face into some makeup and go out and buy me a birthday Starbucks.

I don't know where to put this because it isn't negative but it's like bittersweet but still good. I don't know but yeah.

Almost all the kittens I've raised,except two(I'm adopting them myself), are going into homes in a couple weeks. It feels really great because I know they'll have really loving homes and warm places to sleep and grow but I handraised some of them when their mom got extremely sick so I feel like they're my babies. I've helped find cats and kittens homes before so this isn't new to me but it's just a mixed bag of emotions.

Regardless, I hope they all grow up to be healthy and happy in their new homes. I'm so glad I got to save them all from sickness or freezing in the rain! I know they'll miss me when it's time to go to their new owners but these are people who will love them so I can rest easy.

I hope I don't write a super lengthy and cheesy post, but I'll let my heart speak here. Sob. Bear with me… Okay. Sob. I bet this is going to get VERY LONG.
I hope it can help one or two anons there, or at least inspire or help you a tiny bit.

The thing is I'm so happy to see how far I've come.
Last year was really sad and tough for me. Life was so shitty.
I've dealt with depression since I was 13 (it's been 11 years) and back in 2016 I was on some really heavy psych meds. I do understand they helped me a lot during that period of my life, and maybe I wouldn't be here without their help. But they made me feel horrible in the long run… Physically, I felt like crap. Super fat, tired, insomniac… And I felt incredibly sad and alone. So lonely. I was hurting really fucking bad. If I had to sum up 2016 for me I would say it was the same old stage of the repetitive depressed cycle I already knee so well. You know, "woe-is-me, I'm so tired of trying to kill myself and failing/giving up that I'm gonna accept my fate and be unhappy for the rest of my fucking existence". I was getting numb again, and didn't have motivation to fix my life. In the end I guess I needed some sort of savior. And that didn't happen. So I decided I'd work on myself again, for the very last time. I felt unworthy of that, but I decided to do that just for the sake of not dying knowing I hadn't tried everything I possibly could.

I started with eating healthier (because I was huge and felt very tired).
My first motivation wasn't really losing weight, but taking better care of myself because of how horrible I felt, and I know it had a lot to do with the way I was eating. I'd eat anything I'd see in front of me without a second thought. I decided to change everything in December, before the holidays. It's not like I was going anywhere or like anyone would invite me to eat at their home anyway, so while everyone was feasting, I was planning on becoming healthier.
Changing my diet really gave me an energy boost, and – not very surprisingly, but sort of unexpected anyway – I lost a bit of weight. So I started to try to actively lose weight to improve myself and feel better with my own body. It's been eight months and I've lost 18kg. I am still overweight according to my BMI, so I want to keep losing weight from now on so I can get to a healthy number by the end of this year or early to mid 2018.

Anyway​, losing weight and feeling better health wise gave me confidence enough to dare to think I was worthy of trying to live.
But I couldn't continue to live the way I was living… So awfully negative. I have the tendency of overthinking everything and anything, so I started to talk to myself whenever I thought I was thinking way too much about unimportant things that would only make me suffer:

"Yo anon, why are you overthinking this topic? Chill! It will be okay"
"Anon, that doesn't even matter anymore, does it? Let's think logically for a moment. Hm. Hmmm. You see, it really doesn't! So let's let it go, shall we?"
Etc etc etc etc etc

I understand it can sound very silly, but that helped me so much. Also, I started​ setting reminders of my phone saying things like "you do matter, Anon", "things will be okay" and "good vibes".

In the past I'd say that was a really stupid and overly simple action. That trying to trick my brain wouldn't work on me and that I knew I'd be miserable forever. But I can guarantee that once you allow yourself​ to give positive thinking a chance, it does work. It doesn't mean things will magically work out. No. But you will enjoy your life better, and deal with situations better too, especially when things don't magically work out and you're left frustrated or down.

This one sounds super silly, but I've realized it does help me is stop saying that I am sad and that is it. Or that I am fat, period.
Instead of just saying I am or was this or that, I say "I am fat, BUT I'm doing something about it and in a few months I won't be fat anymore". Or maybe "I feel sad right now", focusing on the fact this feeling is temporary.
I guess that just keeping a positive attitude has helped me a lot.

Yup, I still need to work on many things. My self esteem, obsessive thinking, the way I saw myself as the victim every single time, and more. Ugh. But I want to better myself. If the problem has nothing or little to do with me, I say fuck it and move on, focusing on myself. I don't need to be everyone's savior.
There are things I'm not sure I can change, but I'm going to fucking try. And if in the end I can't really change them, I'll adapt to make things easier for myself, or more comfortable. That's it.

Oh, and one important thing was definitely hitting the gym. I only started that last month, but I've noticed I sleep a lot better and that I feel like my body was craving some type of exercise. So exercise, even if you can't leave your home. Do it consistently​, it doesn't need to take too long in the beginning.

Sorry if this is all over the place or confusing, but god… I feel good now.

hey anon, if you didn't do anything wrong and if the person really acted in a shitty way, then it's okay to feel the way you do. you're not provoking their sadness/stress/whatever, so it's ok to sit and watch.

i don't know if i believe in karma per se, and i probably don't, but i believe that when people act shitty or do stupid shit, they will have to deal with the eventual consequences of their actions. enjoy the show.

Went to a country fair with my parents, even though I should be studying, had a nice time and feel relaxed and a bit more grounded.
I don't get a chance to be around farm animals at all so petting cows, horses, and ducks was fun and one of the sheep was very accomodating and let me pet it's fuzzy black nose.

My only regrets were that there weren't any bunnies to pet this year, the brave llama that defended her sheep flock from a bear wasn't there, and I didn't see the horse that snuffled me out of a PTSD flashback the other year, he was just absolutely magical.

I never planned on getting in the kayak in the first place and had said from the beginning that I wasn't going to do it. I wasn't dressed at all for the activity (intentional to avoid doing it), I looked completey retarded and became soaked in lake water, but I had just decided "fuck it", and clambered in.

There was a moment where I stopped paddling and just allowed the current to take the kayak, and I was floating serenely down the channel of the lake, surrounded by swans and grebes and people waving from passing boats and the nearby grass. Overhanging branches filtered the sun which beat down on my head and shoulders, and the wind blowed gently through my hair and across my ears making a light "phwooooo" sound. I turned around and saw my boyfriend smiling from the seat behind me and my brain must have leaked a gallon of serotonin in that moment.

I think I just made my happiest memory. I'm going to start saying "fuck it" more from now on.

I was thinking the same thing! I think that because it's the sites own brand it's cheaper, but since the reviews about the website have been very positive so far I'm looking forward to it :)


I'm going to buy curtains next as the streelamp outside my flat got a way-whiter-than-necessary bulb installed and it glares around the sides of the blinds I have at the moment. My whole room colour scheme is white and light wood so I'm wondering whether to go with plain or patterned fabric!

Thanks for the link anon!

Your room sounds wonderful <3 I would LOVE a white room with light wood floors. Personally, I'd choose whichever looks best…perhaps white with a subtle texture to it. Obviously I can't see your room to suggest based on what it looks like, but based on your description that's what I might do. Or like, a very light creamy colour in between the color of the floors and walls.

Holy shit i feel like crying.
In the last two months i had multiple consecutive 10's (perfect score in my country) in exams and projects without a single score dropping below it.

I had a rough patch where i was going crazy with studies and i didn't know how to express myself correctly since i couldn't muster up the energy to care (i was very stressed and depressed, still am but hey), i was even considering dropping my studies. But after taking some months out and relaxing and having some time to myself, i turned the tables around and i finally feel like i am slowly but surely going back to my roots before depression and stress took my memory and good school life away.

My professor (which is very strict), that before this kept telling me i should express myself better and more concisely, to not be so "messy" and that it looked like i didn't care (to be fair, most of my grades were a 6-5 or below at best, which are some of the lowest i had in my whole life), told me in my last project review that i sound very eloquent and that i explain myself in a perfect manner. She also told me she is very proud of how good all my work has been recently and that she sees a very bright future in me if i keep this up.

I honestly haven't felt happiness in a while, but this encouragement from a teacher after all the shit i'm going through and seeing how little by little i am improving on my own seriously made me feel that maybe i am not a lost cause after all.

I was kinda unmotivated/sad because of college stuff and couldn't study properlly for the JLPT, and was also demotivated since I decided to go a level down cause without proper studying I woulnd't be able to pass N3, so yeah, it kinda became a big snowball of unmotivation and sadness. But going in today to do it, I think I actually went pretty well, N4 was way easier than I thought it was gonna be (since I had struggle a bit with N3 before),
Now I am pretty hopeful that I may actually pass and maybe get a short term internship that I was eyeing before that asks for N4 or higher.

Feels good.

A bit of backstory: Graduated highschool last year and became a NEET after parents refused to cosign a student loan. Spent a lot of time thinking about the past. I'll be attending a CC in spring in hopes of transfering , and. I'm happy I've moved past the whole "doing/liking things to impress other people" attitude. If only I'd left it behind sooner, things would be so much better.
If I want to go barefaced and wear my hair a bit messily, I'm going to do that. I'll focus on the betterment of myself, and not be concerned with other people's judgement.

If you do a 23andMe genetic test it can tell you if you're predisposed to get Alzheimer's. It would also be stressful to see a confirmation of it but then at least you can know for sure that you need to take preventative measures like exercising daily. And if it only runs on one side of the family, there's hope you didn't inherit the genes for it.

Anonymous 5246

>>5245
Thanks for your advice but if I did that and found out I had the gene, I would probably go fucking crazy and god knows what else. I rather just wait and hope they'll find a cure or die before it starts affecting me.

My dad is almost 70 and so far no sign so i HOPE he didnt get it, and if so, I guess the chance that Ill get it is almost zero right?

Anonymous 5247

>>5243
Genetic predisposition doesn't mean you will certainly develop Alzheimer's.

Get a DNA test to see if you have the 3 responsible genes linked with it. Minimize amyloid beta deposition and tau phosphorylation. Do puzzles/sudoku/math problems daily. Learn new things. Check your B12 and make sure you don't have a deficiency.
Depending on your age you can take mmse-camcog, Tea, Bdi, MoCA, BDAE tests. Your father should get tested.
Depression and anxiety up the chances you develop Alzheimer's , MCI or SCI considerably. Beck-anxiety test and the ICD-10 geriatric depression/anxiety scale tests are pretty fast to take.

Over 6000000 people suffer from this disease, it's not a death sentence, anon. Don't worry too much about!

positive feels post:
yesterday I got my teeth cleaned for the first time in about two years. there was some discoloration on one of my lower front teeth for a long time that (although my lip covered it whenever i smiled) I was incredibly self-conscious about, but I figured it was just a permanent stain and there was nothing to be done about it short of bleaching…but the dentist I went to managed to get rid of it! I can finally look in the mirror without wanting to cringe or worrying about whether other people noticed it. I was so happy when I noticed this morning. On the downside, I have to get my first filling, and I hate that idea (dentists scare the shit out of me, please do not poke my sensitive face tissue with your sharp metal implements/whirring mechanical gadgets) but it's better than letting a cavity develop. I'm going to be super conscientious about flossing and brushing regularly from now on so I don't have to worry about doing this again.

I was very close to bumping this last night with a story, I really was. I didn't because I hate getting lost in a fantasy and jinxing myself but I will post it today. I've posted bits and pieces of this information here before but I really am proud of myself.

I have been taking better care of myself this year. Even with all of my lows I know I am happier in 2018 than I was for quite a few years. It has been almost 2 months now since I last smoked a cigarette, I got myself hooked at 17/18 and am 25 now. I haven't smoked weed in about that amount of time too, and I'm not here to judge anyone who does those things but it wasn't easy for me to just give those up.

I dealt with some stressful shit in December 2017, I was dumped in a very awful manner after a 3 year relationship.

I've moved on. I would get hit and on some occasions to the point of receiving a concussion or black eye, I had my wrist twisted and torn once and had to wear a homemade brace made from wooden spoons and medical tape. I had my ability to just go for a walk alone taken away from me pretty early in the relationship, I ended up in a really bad place because of some unhealthy instinctual belief that I was helpless being alone and that he was the only one who loved me. In hindsight it was crazy to have remained there but I was very mentally unhealthy, right before being dumped I spent a lot of days in the mental hospital. I had no one else.

I hurt so much those first few months being alone but am actually in a much better place now.

I weigh like 25 pounds less than I did at that time, I haven't been this thin since I was 19. Even though I'm 25 I feel prettier than I ever have as an adult these days.

This part I do not want to jinx, but I ended up going on a date recently after whining about nothing working here. He took me out for coffee, walked around with me and we talked watching the sunset and the ocean and I never wanted it to end. He made me laugh many times and even said the cutest things like "we can go wherever your little heart desires". I didn't even think it was possible someone like this would be interested in me, his face is so cute and he is a "chad" in that he is confident, 6'4 and has an athletic body(his job forces it on him) except he plays computer games like counterstrike and runescape and is more of a dork like myself. I'm so overly happy with this, he is coming over one of these days to watch anime with me all night. I almost feel like I'm dreaming. It feels too good to be true but each day I text him I know it's real.

I only have 2 friends, one irl and one on the internet, but they're both smart and humorous girls who think I'm just as special.

I didn't think my life would be like it is right now, ever. I am a newfag to this CC in that I only started using it in February and it has been a positive influence on my life so far.

Despite everything that has happened in my life and how hellish and lonely my early adulthood was, I know happiness and a good life are possible for me if I love myself and mind my thoughts. I know that it's within my power and that I'm a strong enough person for it.

I'm feeling particularly sappy tonight and just want to say good vibes and good luck to all of you, especially those in the darkest places.

Everybody had already left and I was standing there alone in the park looking like Cinderella waiting for my family to pick me up. It felt super awkward but then I saw a little girl with her mom on the other side of the street looking at me and she looked so happy and amazed by me. That was the coolest moment of my life

happy feel for today:
when i was in middle-school, I had a really close online friend that I used to play Furcadia with (before I knew what a furry was). Pretty much whenever I got online, we were either talking or goofing off together. She was a pretty well-known portrait artist until she went to art school and basically fell off the map, and for years I had no idea what happened to her because she deleted all her art/personal accounts associated with Furcadia. For a while I thought that she was maybe dead because she'd disappeared so completely and I couldn't find her even when I was looking for her irl name. But today when I was going through my art folder looking for a picture to contribute to the avatar thread, I found one of her old deviantart drawings that I had saved from years ago, and guess what? it had the watermark of an account that was still active. I looked up the same username and it turns out that not only is she not dead, she's a senior concept artist for a popular video game rn and she's living her dream out on the west coast. I'm so happy for her and proud that she's following her dream. I don't think she would remember me nowadays but I sent her a message on Artstation anyways, and I hope we'll be able to reconnect.

i went to the doctor today for the first time in years this morning.
also for the first time in years was honest about the fact that i'm a crippling alcoholic and i need help because self-medicating like this is going to eventually kill me.
i was so scared that she would judge me. nobody else knows about this, not even my family, and i can fake 'normal' well enough (even while totally flipping wasted) that nobody can tell the difference. i was so scared that i'd just get this talk like 'well you need to go to AA don't you'
but she just tried to help me and let me know there are options that she can make available when i'm ready to start weaning myself off the bottle. i left the clinic feeling happier and more optimistic about the future than i have in years. i actually have hope that things can get better now.
anyone who's involved in health care, i hope you know how much the services you provide mean to the people that need them. thank you.

honestly, i just realized that sleeping until 12 am and eating shitty junk food made me feel unhappy and sad all the time

i had to change my mindset completely and i took a long ass time but now i work out regularly and try to eat good stuff that acutally fuels my body instead of shitty processed food

basically i don't drink soda anymore, cut out read meat almost completely, get up early to get some workout in (even just 10 minutes does wonders) and i just try to be all around happier, yknow?

took some effort but i never want to go back to my neet days where i'd sit on my computer for 12+ hours a say, drinking like a litre of energy drink and eating chips shivers

After going out to dinner, my boyfriend and I walked back to our car. He always opens the passenger door for me which I appreciate very much. Obviously I can do it myself but I find it very sweet. A guy parked right next to us gets out of his car and jokingly tells us how his wife now hates him because she saw us and kept interrogating why he's never bothered to open the door for her. We both chuckled for a good few minutes on the way home. I love how much of a gentleman my boyfriend is!

Have to share-
I have been eyeing the Cheating thread for two plus weeks with dread.
My husband was acting oddly; staying after work, solo ‘errands’ on a Saturday, a few calls at night where he went outside so I couldn’t hear. On Facebook chat, which he never does. I swore once I heard him on the phone saying ‘my wife can’t find out’.
Then Wednesday I was checking the account - he’d spent $2,000 at a jewelry store. My birthday is in July; our wedding anniversary in March.
I was gonna’ confront him Saturday.
But last night he came home, ordered me to dress up, and took me to an amazing dinner and gave me a lovely ring - the 10th anniversary of us meeting! I hadn’t even thought about that.
I admitted I thought he was cheating and he just laughed, said he was married to the best woman on earth, why would he settle for less?
I just am so relieved and happy

I can cry prettily if I show some restraint (so my face with tears streaming down it with little redness or change in expression).

It is awkward, though, because I was sobbing at work that way and then a co-worker starts talking to me and I realize she doesn't realize I was sobbing. I tried to sort of wipe away my tears that fell to my jawline.

I started uni expecting to start gaining the freshman 15, but I actually lost 2 inches off my waist without effort. I haven't even started going to the gym there yet, just keeping up with my regular home workout (that has plateaued me in the past).

It could just be because I'm already kind of chubby so lose weight eating the same amount of food that makes smaller girls gain weight. It could be that I'm coming off of working nights. Regardless, I'm relieved.

no you aren't.
you made that post assuming that the person who claimed autism was doing it just to appear 'cute'. and then you told them that you were justified in telling them to kill themselves if they weren't 'legitimately' diagnosed with autism, regardless of whether they had the opportunity to see a mental health professional in their life or not. you have no idea what other people go through. i believe you when you claim autism because your total lack of empathy testifies to that.

NTA, but you were wrong, you had wrongly accused someone and now you're still riding around in your high horse. Being wrongfully f accused of lying is an issue and just because you say it isn't doesn't make you right. I thought your kind realized when others tell them they're acting inappropriately.

This is just a cheezy stupid happy vent about an overly idolized relationship. Very long rambling. A lot of rambling.

I'm with my boyfriend for 5 years now. I always had a strong dislike of men and thought that i'll either be alone, find some girl to be with or end my life. The last part was the closest. I tried dating before, but all the guys just wanted sex, would never listen, would close up and never talk, would be angry at everything, would be complete human filth. start okay and go down hill fast. But he was someone that saved me. I love how we talk, I love how we discuss things. I love that I can tell him anything and never be afraid that he will get angry. No matter the topic, if it's emotions, problems, mistakes, even sexual or any other thing..The way he takes criticism or just me being filled with a bag of diagnosed mental problems and all that is comforting. Never got yelled at or had to be afraid. He would always just calmly be with me, hug me and then try to understand the problem and discuss. Or sometimes say nothing, kiss my head, leave me be for an hour and then just hug me for a very long time.

The things I told him multiple times would gut most men. I know that really well. I even challenged his manliness, his ideas and beliefs at the start. All men I talked with used to flip when you don't stroke their ego. But the way he'd take it…Just openly say, no fluff or anything that he feels hurt, annoyed, angry, but that it's also fair that I feel one thing or another and then we'd just talk. Try to understand, find a solution. Other times he'd openly just tell me something that i'm lacking or he's unhappy with. It was shocking at first, but then I realized that it was never a thing he tried to hurt me with. It was always something that bothered him and he wanted me to know and he would always want to change or find a compromise. Sometimes we can't and we grew to accept that nothing is perfect. I'm not perfect. He's not perfect. What's important is that we know the flaws.

The point is, i'm thankful that I feel that I can fully trust someone. I feel that I can crumble and he will catch every single piece of me. When my mind went to shit a few times he did just that. I want to be with him. I want to raise our children together. I used to hate children and the idea of pregnancy. But now…It's driving me nuts. With him I became a complete idiot so fast when we met. I'm an idiot, idiot, idiot for feeling like this now and I couldn't be happier. The way he speaks, the way he reasons, the way he reaches for goals, the way he also crumbles sometimes and shows it, the way he does silly thoughtful things like read me fairy tales when i'm sick…I can't help but feel the way I do. Intoxicating. It's not healthy. The more I write and try to actually put forth these emotions the more silly it sounds and looks childish, but can't help it.

It's funny, all these years passed and I only feel the flame for the entire relationship growing. Sometimes it takes a step back, but then it takes 2-3 steps forward.

it might sound like my life revolves around him…But over the years I was able to make major changes in my life that i'm happy about. It just always feels that it's his support that drives me forward. There are still so many things that I want to improve in my life, but it feels nice to reflect. I Overcame major things like self harm, major anxiety, bulimia. Was able to find something i'm passionate about to focus on it, learn and pursue as a career. So many things I still need to work on and so many problems, but i'm happy.
So yeah, thanks for reading my rambles, it just feels nice to leave this somewhere as a vent.

I guess it was kinda sketchy to begin with.. but eh we decided not to go with this apartment. But the landlord we have now she also has a another place in that same area so we're thinking of just waiting until she kicks out the tenant there (she's on her way out, just an old lady with dementia and she's trying to find a facility to go to).

I just saw the new My Hero Academia movie yesterday and it was SO EPIC! I had so much fun and I went by myself since my bf doesn't like the show anyway and he had to work. I met some guy there (both of us were about 3 hours early) and we talked for the entire time until the movie was starting. We sat by each other and he basically hyped me up the entire time. This was his second time watching the movie and he was like 'prepared to be hyped!' I've been hyped about this movie since it was announced and it did not disappoint. I kinda wish I wouldve gotten his name or something he seemed pretty cool but after the movie was over we both went our separate ways. Boo we could've gushed about more anime!

Congrats for going out of your comfort zone Anon! I was kinda scared too since I had to take the train to get the theatre (as it was only in select theatres). It was my first time taking the train alone but my love for the series helped me push through it lol. I spoke to him first because he was wearing a My Hero Academia shirt, I complimented him and then he sat by me and started talking. Lol if he wasn't wearing the shirt I wouldn't have talked to him, so i'm glad for that. He was very talkative so he invited others to talk to us too, I enjoy people like this because I'm really shy so I /never/ start the conversation unless I see something I can relate to (like his shirt for an example). There's still hope for you Anon! This series is like insanely popular! I'm sure you'll find friends through this series.
