Severelius wrote:The 'Poem of the Moment' thread constantly makes me think that I really wish I could have ever gotten into poetry as a medium or art form or whatever you want to call it, but the way I was taught about it in school made me loathe it instinctively and to this date there have only ever been like two poems that I actually like reading and my brain just bounces off the rest as too obtuse at best or dismisses it sight unseen as pseudo-intellectual pretentious wankery.

And this upsets me. I've managed to get into other things I used to find pretentious as fuck, as evidenced by my expensive box set of Royal Opera House opera performances. But poetry I just don't seem to have the inclination for, and I blame my secondary school English teacher for that.


I relate a lot to this! I detested poetry at school.

Without getting deep, I think as you grow up you can relate or identify more with the emotion in a lot of poems though in a way you can't at school. 13 year old who's only thought was getting back home to play Call of Duty was never really going to embrace what I thought at the time was a waste of time.

Apparently my brain just doesn’t much like me tonight. I feel poorly (emotionally) and so weary of life. I don’t know what to do about it; I don’t know what’s even left for me to do.

Man that sucks. We are our own worst enemy. Can you take it as a personal challenge to counteract whatever it is in your brain that causes this situation? That may sound strange, but something like this has worked for me. When I am depressed there is a small (sometimes tiny) part of me that rebels and just gets fucking angry that I have to deal with that shit. You deserve better.

My husband told me that I’m only no longer a smoker when the smell of smoke annoys me. I never was bothered by smoke smell even before I started smoking…

I quit smoking cold turkey a week ago because it’s just too expensive to continue. The first few days were awful but I’m fine now. :thumbsup:

Don’t be afraid to let your hair grow. Have you tried dyeing it? Constant dyeing is probably not great for your hair but I think they sell some hair coloring pens to target certain areas if it really bothers you that much.

I think not having to say “please” when I ask Alexa to do something is teaching me some bad manners. :shifty:

I had the most weird-ass dream where I was dating some kind of insectoid alien thing and I needed a catheter. The alien thing could speak English though and was quite the sweetheart. :shrug: :asleep:

I’m wondering whether the Sun is hot or not. I’m starting to think it isn’t.

I was wondering why the forums have been so quiet lately. Turns out most of the notifications have been going to my spam folder. Most, but not all. Kind of random. Weird.

Why is it so weirdly satisfying to watch clips from Disney movies I know really well but in random foreign languages?

I'm aware this is a question literally nobody but me has ever asked. Because I am weird. But it is what it is.

I had a dream where I went to a urinal and someone started feeling me up from behind and licking the back of my neck. What on earth does that mean? :wide-eyed:
