    Ugh I want to just say 'bye', 'sayonara', 'adios bistachios' to all. I need an actual good break. Even when I'm doing nothing, shit drains me out.

    It's been a WILD day to witness the Smash community implode under the weight of dozens and dozens of very serious, very credible sexual assault allegations. I'm honestly reeling from the sheer volume of stories, and they keep coming. Unreal how much crap is being uncovered, unreal how many people knew and did nothing, unreal how long these predators have been running rampant for years.

    I'm not surprised, I lost the ability to be surprised by these things happening long ago sadly, but the extent of it is still revolting. These ain't bad apples, we should burn the whole orchard. The apologists are almost as gross as the perpetrators. I feel sick. Only thing I'm relieved of is the fact that my little sister was always too lazy to join the scene despite having the skills to compete.

    Just woah, what a day, but hey, at least it's coming to light and punishment has been swift and decisive so far.

    The amount of times I have had to explain today why minors can't give consent and why they don't share the blame with their abusers even if they initiated sexual contact has me the most baffled I've been in recent memory.

    *Sigh*

    I don't think some people fully realise just how much effort I put into functioning normally.

    Sometimes I wish I could make them experience it from my perspective for once in their lives. It can be rather difficult to explain to people that don't experience the things I do. No, I do not freak out for no reason, I try to explain why but they can't fathom it. Yes, I realise that some of my social worries are irrational. I know that hating the sound of chewing is also irrational, but do I secretly want to slam my head against a wall when I hear it? ABSOLUTELY. I want to start clawing the wallpaper off the walls and scream. There's a reason I start humming, put on music, or I make pointless conversation and it's because I'm distracting myself from that urge.

    I am not purposefully being awkward. But there are things I have to do otherwise I lose my calm. Otherwise I start behaving in inappropriate ways.

    "Why can't you just learn *insert skill here* already? I thought you were planning to do that ages ago"

    *Sigh* YES I KNOW, I AM INCREDIBLY AWARE OF THIS. But I have to work up to the point where I am able to function normally in my everyday life, otherwise if I attempt to learn this skill I will breakdown. The intrusive thoughts will become all consuming. I'll become depressed and anxious. My productivity will take a hit and I'll hate myself for it.

    I probably shouldn't work myself up over this and accept that there will be people who just can't get their heads around all this.

    Okay, if someone says they're bi, they're bi. Like, don't do this "oh, they just want attention", or "they're just saying this because it's 'cool' right now" nonsense.

    We are floundering. Why do we keep trying? This is the definition of insanity.

    Sigh here we go again

    I never realized much weight I've lost until I crossed my arms and noticed I don't have a belly to rest them on anymore..

    Nothing is more annoying than sports going overtime and delaying/interrupting my shows. If the sports go overtime they should be switched to a special channel and regular shows broadcast in their normal timeslot.

    I agree with this so much. It's especially annoying if it's a show I was looking forward to watching.

    Love it when people make me feel worse for struggling to find a job. Good thing the pandemic is over now :slight_smile: (/sarcasm)

    I just spent an hour venting my feelings in my thread, some stuff I wanted answers to, musings etc. and I accidentally clicked on the "members" button and lost the whole thing. Tired, angry and disappointed right now.
    That was some of my best writing too :disappointed:

    Have you tried going back to the page you wrote it on? Sometimes it automatically saves.
