Oh hey it is November!
You know what that means?

Because I don't. I don't know what anything means anymore. I took a quiz to tell me what kind of quiz I was and it told me I was a dumb quiz. The world is and has always been confusing.

Also please don't let this community die.

I know it's slightly more work than some places, but it's the only place online I don't feel like my participation is being soul-crushingly gamified by a points/likes system, or picked apart for a corporate branding agenda, or the political machinations of Russian internet trolls or someone else.

A lot of the huge other social sites leave me with this weird sick unsatisfied empty feeling, like everyone's competing and trying to destroy each other and there's no warmth.

We have had our ups, downs, problems, and undeniable drama here. It's not as fast paced as some other places. But I genuinely feel better after spending time here than I do sooo many places online. I don't know.

A crowd-sourced, algorithm based editorial voice isn't necessarily bad, but it gets reaaaal tiresome and repetitive.
I want this place, flaws and all.

I agree wholeheartedly. Posting on Reddit just kills my soul. This place warms my heart.

Tired of Pokemon Go? There's a new game called Draconius Go, which is basically a Pokemon Go copycat, that actually includes some features that Pokemon Go has been missing. I think the greatest part is that it allows you to play in rural areas and forests, something that should have been integral to Pokemon Go in the first place.

Hey Irish people, you okay after Ophelia?

Here in Dublin it was pretty disappointing. Huge fuss in the city, people here didn't know what to expect at all. Went into work and everyone was complaining that everyone else they knew had had their work cancelled. Eventually the boss came in to a sea of displeased faces and made the call. All public transport got suspended for the day a couple hours later so it was a good thing - I would've been stuck.

But then it came and it sucked/blew (I was hoping for something a little more dramatic), it was real windy but not dangerously so. We did lose our doormat though. RIP. We also lost power from 9pm to midnight.

My dad was down south in rural Cork and it was way worse there, it blew the roof off a school. The country had three deaths, all from falling trees.

Yesterday the weather was back to being perfectly normal, except the trees are noticeably more bare than before.

And we have "Storm Brian" coming over the weekend, too! Thanks, climate change!


Hear hear, more death and destruction! Thank god for storm Brian, may it mow down the rest of Ireland.

Finland gets temperate climate from the gulf stream and no major storms. Win-win!

Just when you're about to relax
The alarm goes

The neighbour plays out his bass
The fire alarm goes off upstairs

Just when you're about to lie down
Take a deep breath

Just when you're about to relax
Get news from the boss
An urgent message from your course


Get up now
Get out now

The smoke fills your lungs
You stumble out


Just when you're about to relax
You're about to wind down
The alarm goes


The deadline is tomorrow and you've got
No time to borrow

You're about to relax
You get

Either have hippie friends or buy them on the darkweb with bitcoins.

This isn't really poetry, but I just thought it was like. So. Frickin. Deep.

I just realised I've been living my life
like yesterday
didn't exist
just trying to erase the past
over and over again
but it does exist
and it cannot be erased
just like the goddamn scars
on my face

Nice to see someone is still drawing.

Not me. Capitalism has killed my soul.

Last night I dreamt that I spoke with my dad. I told him that we all thought he were going to die but I'm so glad he's still alive.

Weird. It seemed so obvious in the dream that of course you're still alive, it was a mistake to think you had died.

My friend gave me some shrooms and I realised that people form their idea of me based on a few short exchanges. No one knows what my life is actually like. They just know what I was like the few times they talked to me.

Just came to mind that people probably base their opinions of me on stuff that are completely meaningless to me, but it may be the only thing they remember about me since they were around at that time. But for me, tons of stuff has happened since then. Something that seems to me to have been ages ago may be the most recent memory about me to someone.
