When people do an AMA (ask me anything) my first reaction is to ask “IS the only way up” … from that song lyric. The thing is, I don’t even really know the song very well. But it’s always what I want to ask. I wish I knew why. But also it’d probably tell me some weird shit about my brain so maybe I don’t want to know why?
I know I’ve ranted about this one before, but people who post on a second hand site with the RRP and say “make me an offer”… No, grow the fuck up, and set your own price. Cos if it’s just something I want, rather than need, I’ll offer you like $20 and you’ll be horrified and offended because to you it’s worth $300. We all measure value differently and I have VERY different amounts I will spend on wants (I’ll op shop, wait, spend time) over needs. Surely I can’t be the only one who can distinguish my wants from my needs and value accordingly?
I thought this was a thought provoking statement on creativity:
Did not anticipate Robert Pattinson becoming one of my favorite actors but he has. I love his thoughts on method acting: “You only ever see people do the method when they’re playing assholes. You never see someone being lovely to everyone while they’re really deep in character.”

I placed a book on hold at the library and it kept telling me that I had borrowed it before. At the reserve page. At the checkout screen. It’s like…. ok, can you stop shaming me for not reading it the first time around?! Sheesh-a-baloney. Also, I still haven’t started it again. I guess I won’t be reading it?
“Push yourself out of your comfort zone to succeed” is not only terrible ‘advice’ masquerading as a unique idea from every generic piece of shit “thought leader” out there but incredibly abelist as well. (Have written about this before too.)
I’m trying to decide what computer to buy next as both of ours are getting very hard to use but ugh apple gives you such a bullshit level of info. Like I can see option 1 is ‘8th gen’ processor and option 2 is ’10th gen’ but what does it MEAN? Tell me the implications please … so annoying.
