I think that my cat really is plotting to kill me and take the car. I know he's not pleased that everyone is home all the time now, and I think he has finally reached his limit. He purposely stretches out in the middle of the kitchen floor, and recently has learned to do that at the top of the stairs too. He loves to trip me up at the worst possible times.

I think I'm slowly learning how to properly say no instead of just ignoring the guy and dropping contact. Not doing it super well, but better than before.

Hm, I'm at a loss. I live with a family with 3 kids and 4 adults (including me). We don't know what to do. The oldest, an 8 year old, is going on himself every day. I was sure he was autistic because of a few things like stimming and other behavior. The doctor that looked at him the one appointment said he wasn't because he looked you in the eye and stuff. He is special needs though... he was born with a cleft lip and such. I wish there's more that I can do with him. He's smart kids don't get me wrong and a few unfortunate circumstances like his cleft lip made him delayed with speaking and not being able to go to school on time due to understandable circumstances and with his biological dad being questionable character and possible ptsd from visiting his biological dad because of how he acted. I know this is kinda personal and none are experts. Just need a little insight. Just think there's something to do. They're not my kid but yeah.

It’s amazing how gays never tire of coming up with the same sappy “coming of age” teen movies where there’s always a scene in which the timid, bookish closet case has to bathe or massage (for some unknown reason) the overly confident, possibly straight, twunk sleeping at the dock, glistening shirtless in the sunlight. Good gay films can be counted in one hand. The rest are better left as workable plots for a Helix Studios shoot.

I don't know or watch many gay movies. One I remember seeing back when I was in high school was "But I'm a cheerleader". Idk how you feel about anime but they do sometimes have a few shows with lgbt stuff in it. I like Yuri On Ice and Gravitation. Then there's a lot of manga's I read seem to deal with cross dressing. Like kill me kiss me. Twins who look similar and ones a male and other is a female. Female has a crush on a dude who went to school with her cousins all boys school... they agreed to switch places and the guy who she had a crush with suddenly crushing on her while disguised as her cousin.

I can’t seem to recall many such films actually. There are a few, but I can’t recall their titles. And I am a sucker for coming of age teen movies.

Well, I’m also including low budget short films like those on YouTube.

Is it green tea that's meant to help you sleep?

I hope so cause that's the kind I just bought.

I think you need the decaf version. Green tea is quite soothing but the regular version is quite caffeinated.

No, no, no! Green tea has more caffeine than black tea, but it also has more theanine, which is the calming chemical in tea, so it balances out to be less acutely stimulating than black tea, but certainly not enough to make it good for sleep.

Camomile is the tea that can induce tiredness, but it may also disrupt quality of sleep for some people.

You can buy pure theanine powder online and then put a scoop of it in a decaf or herbal tea at night before bed. It really helps promote tiredness and sleep!

Lack of work and thus lack of any reason to get up in the mornings for the past like 2 months has just destroyed my sleep schedule. Heightened anxiety and generally just my mental health kicking me shitless from being cooped up so long has done nothing to help.

I'm basically half-nocturnal now and need to get back to normal.

I would recommend slowly trying to restart your sleep schedule. Try going to bed 45 minutes earlier each day. I’d also cut all caffeine until you’re reasonably back to normal. Definitely try things like reading and creating a low volume bedtime playlist for the hour running up to when you roughly want to be asleep.

Also if you can’t sleep acceptance is key. I used to suffer from insomnia and got anxious about it because good sleep is really important for me for health reasons. Best tip I ever had was when I couldn’t sleep, stop trying. Get up, go into another room for a bit, distract myself, accept I would get sleep at some point and eventually I’d get tired enough to sleep.

I’ve never really been into shorts so I can say I’ve seen many of them. But yes, that’s probably more of a common theme in those.

No there definately are alot of those shorts on youtube lately, a flurry of gay coming of age shorts has hit youtube, from europe and they all share a similar theme and oddly enough, very similar actors. :lol:

It's cute, but after awhile, it's like deja-vu. :rolleyes:

I think when this lockdown is over I'm actually going to seek out a therapist or 12.
