    Wish I could fast forward to Friday night, beyond ready to get this work week over.

    Thinking of buying bunch of microwavable preserved food, or even military food packs in case of the pandemic going completly out of control.
    Thanks to the government and some shady cult for trolling all over the tiny country, we've become something of a global embarrassment.

    Just fk it, one more reason to prepare to leave the country, soon after college. Seriously.

    I dislike posts that say things such as "Real women have curves!"

    Whilst curves can be attractive, it is possible to compliment such features and not tear others down. Personally I have a rectangular body shape. This doesn't make me any less of a woman. I'm still real.

    If Pete Buttigieg becomes president, we need to make a $3 bill with his face on it.

    Disagree. If you take away the gay part and the eloquent speeches, he's a pretty awful candidate with a long history of being a selfish sellout.

    He worked at McKinsey, a company whose sole purpose is lying and covering up corrupt things for other companies. He was literally paid to find ways to lie and hide things.

    He did practically nothing for his town as Mayor, and managed to create a scandal of firing the first black police chief for reporting racist comments from other officers.

    He always touts how he's the poorest candidate and can relate to everyone, yet fails to mention his husband is a millionaire so he is realistically a millionaire also, which is blatant McKinsey style lying and manipulation.

    His entire life since high school looks like a series of box-checking what he's supposed to do to become a politician without any actual passion or dedication for any of the things he did.

    When someone is the "first" of something in a role that powerful, you have to make sure they're as perfect as possible to be an example. Obama was a good first black president, because he was the complete opposite of black stereotypes and had a squeaky clean record. Hillary would have been the worst possible first female president, due to decades of problems and fulfilling stereotypes, so thankfully she lost. Mayor Pete is acceptable for a Congressman or maybe even a Senator, but he should definitely not be the first gay president with that much of a scarred history already at his young age.

    Okay, I'll admit. TikTok has introduced me to new music, as much as I don't like the app.

    Flatmate: Hey, since you're single...can I find you a girlfriend? I'm something of a matchmaker.

    Me: (knowing full well I have no idea how to flirt, and doubting my ability to find a relationship. To the point where I worry that my socially anxious behaviour will ruin any chances I have with someone. I'm avoiding my crush even though she used to have slight feelings for me, hoping my feelings go away since I don't know how to talk to her) Pft, you can sure try haha.

    Flatmate: Great! I love a challenge.

    Me: ...Wait what you're serious? :confused:

    *Flatmate leaves*

    Me: ...I feel like I should almost be worried.

    I feel like I haven't been here in a while, and it seems really odd for some reason. I can't forget my EC family. Though it seems less active now.

    I hate timed online forms. Especially those that ask questions such as "How many hours do you spend doing (insert topic) on average per week?" and it's something I do a lot. If you're gonna ask me questions like that and you time me then you're probably gonna get botched answers. Listen, I have trouble figuring out how much time I spend on something on an average day never mind a week. I find it hard to estimate, so my best guess might be miles off the truth. Either you give me the time to work it out or I give you a random answer that might not even make sense.

    So, I went to the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras this past weekend. It's the second time I have been (first time was 4 years ago in 2016) and like last time I got to participate in the parade again. I have to say that I had a blast - there is something quite liberating about dancing up the middle of Oxford Street wearing some ridiculous outfit with thousands of people watching...

    New prescription :frowning2: The doctor was really pushing medication and was talking over me and putting words in my mouth when discussing symptoms. Also she was super fuckin quick to diagnose me with depression, even though I don't agree with that?

    I guess I'll wait it out for a while, and then decide whether to ditch the script or not.

    Over the last few months, one of my friends has really started talking about boundaries.

    I'm fully on board now - It makes sense and seems so healthy. Healthy boundaries = healthier mental health (hopefully!)

    We're all doomed. The only hope I have at this point is if I survive it all, I can invest at the low point of this recession and make a buck when it climbs back up. Maybe there'll be an increased demand in my profession as people seek to protect their finances.

    That awkward moment when you get your cousin's wedding invitation and it is addressed to your name and guest, and your are more single than a $1 bill and have been your whole life.

    Plus, you're my cousin, you should already know I'm not dating anyone...

    Is this due to the corona virus? If it is, same thing is being said in my country too.

    I thought I was over my crush, but last night I had a dream where she asked me out and we started dating. So uh, I don't think I'm fully over it. (Dammit brain why are you like this? Move on already) I realise I've been posting about this quite a lot. Sorry. In other news, I've been doing fairly well in terms of grades and I hope that I keep that up.
