Anyone else not make future plans for anything because they think we have no future? Feb 16, 2022

        At least we all have some kind of a future, whether we planned much for it or not.

        For a long time my plan for the future was to survive the inevitable degradation of living standards due to the future being so awful. That's why I have the land & tiny home-I don't want to be in a city when everybody suddenly realizes that the bread is no longer coming.

        When I was in college (1990s) I lived in central cities due to fear of nuclear war of all things, which was totally illogical for the times. The future today is climate collapse and running out of resources, which can be planned for & survived.

      I'm 48 now, but I keep thinking I'm 58. Maybe because the past two years alone have aged me at least a decade early.

        It's okay, it won't last forever. I promise. Influenza used to be a terrible plague, and now because within a couple years, our bodies eventually built up immunity, now it's just the flu. My pharmacist friend says that covid is going that way, and she's actually annoyed by the lockdowns.

      I think human beings are selfish, violent and destructive by default and will never change.

        I believe that people in power want to turn us against each other, but most people just want stability in their lives.

        I agree. I basically celebrate the whole holiday season: wintertime is dark and cold and it's nice to be celebrating. Technically they used to celebrate until February 2nd so I figure it's still the Christmas season. Don't feel bad for celebrating and having fun.

      If we can't have a Happy New Year, I'll settle for average, decent, uneventful New Year.

      I want to dress completely in black from now on to express my feelings towards this world we live in.

        I see so many people all dressed in black. Most people, in fact.
        This miracle planet, loaded with incredible lifeforms, is
        not even a grain of dust in the vastness of space. We are surrounded by nothing. We used to be nothing. Now, we're alive. Soon, we return to being nothing. This is the only experience you will ever get. Life is colourful. Celebrate life!

        https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O4irXQhgMqg Paint It Black by the Rolling Stones, from another era full of despair and rage and upheaval.Part of the song was used for the opening credits for the 1980s Vietnam War TV drama Tour Of Duty. That's worth trying to dig up on Youtube.

      Someone on Reddit called me an "edgelord". As if that was a *bad* thing.

      I read that there's a Chinese unofficial holiday on Nov. 11 called Singles' Day. Pfft! Every day is singles day for me.

        Perhaps another cat? The love and novelty of a new pet can actually speed up grieving.

      It's fall, but it was really hot today. But it won't be long before everyone complains about it being too cold. People love to complain.

    I'm part cartoonist, part mad scientist, part toy enthusiast, part first-generation gamer and just a little bit part crazy cat lady. How many cats do you need before you're crazy, anyway? I only have two.:smileycat::smirkcat:
