CrispyCactus,

I’ve really enjoyed watching this come along on Wednesdays! You’ve clearly added quite a bit to the original pattern. It looks great!

Are we all fucked?

I’m worried for the world. All I’ve been thinking about is WW3 and this shit makes me want to vomit. I can’t even smoke weed anymore without having a near panic attack. I feel unmotivated. I wake up and immediately just want to go back to bed. I’m not trying to spread fear but the Doomsday clock is 90 seconds till...

CrispyCactus,

I’ve noticed over the last few decades that every time I start worrying about WW3, climate change, solar flares, super volcanos, giant meteors etc. that there’s something going on in my personal life that’s causing me stress. Something I feel like I have no control over.

I guess my brain doesn’t want to admit/deal with my own issues, so I focus on something else, something that feels just as overwhelming.

Working on taming the anxiety itself is quite useful, especially if you can’t help the situation you’re currently in.

The things that have helped me the most are: meditating (chakra and mindfulness) which has been great at helping me calm down; finding activities that feel meaningful to me; spending time with the people I care about (making the time); and finding beauty and/or amusement in everyday life.

All of these things take practice and time, which might seem useless if you think that the world will end tomorrow. But even if all you can do is one meaningful/fulfilling thing today, then it will improve your day and help make your last day on earth a little better.

Of course chances are good you’ll wake up tomorrow, and the next day etc., which means you have even more time to live an even happier life.

Good luck my dude.

CrispyCactus,

Your mother sounds like an amazing woman. I’m sorry to hear everything she (and you and your siblings) had to go through. It takes incredible resolve to survive all that.

As someone who’s had poor health their entire life, I can absolutely agree that the ‘tender moments’ really make life what it is.

Thanks for sharing.

CrispyCactus,

Well that was just fun and delightful. Thanks for sharing!

CrispyCactus,

No need to be embarrassed! Everybody needs a good punch right in the Feels sometimes. I listened to a few more of their songs and got a ‘dudes being bros’ vibe, which I always love.

CrispyCactus,

I don’t know why, but the sticker still being on the axe is the best part to me.

CrispyCactus,

My dad and I were shopping at Home Depot one December and found a small Christmas decoration I wanted. When we got it to the register the cashier couldn’t find a tag or sticker on it. Normally I’d go get another one with a tag but this was the only one they had. The cashier tried looking it up through the computer system but still couldn’t figure it out. She handed it to us and told us it was free because it was the store’s fault that she couldn’t find the price.

We’ve been enjoying that decoration for years, my mom still puts it in the middle of her kitchen display. And we always remember how nice that cashier was to us.

CrispyCactus,

Oh no, those are stupid cute. I love that they're neighborhood groundhogs and not some randos from who knows where =)

CrispyCactus,

My siblings and I are all in our 30s and we still get visits from the Easter Bunny. We go through our baskets in front of our mom and talk about how much we enjoy our gifts from 'the bunny'. I wasn't able to be with my family this year so my Easter basket shower up in a FedEx box. Chocolate is chocolate, I've got no problems with this tradition.

CrispyCactus,

Haha, that's great, your MIL sound fun. We've all been 'bunny's assistant' over the years (helping to buy stuff) but maybe next Easter mom will get her own basket!

CrispyCactus,

Super interesting, I never heard anything like it.
