I am going to keep wearing a mask even when the pandemic is over. I like having a warm face when when I walk around and no more runny cold nose after 15 mins of walking from allergies. Plus I like the merch option from bands.
I really wonder if people will just ditch the masks or if it will be more common to see people wearing masks.
Tbh i would love to go on wearing them at least when i know i am ill or i don’t feel well. Also going to a doctor, i often sat there waiting to get in and thought “till me and my kids are inside we probably catched something else from someone else”
I knew that thanks to the pandemic and quarantine my social anxiety became more bad, but i didn’t know it had become bad enough that my whole body was trembling from a strange woman (that lives in the same neighbourhood as me) tallking to me, because i was feeding my street cats.
I’m late to the party, but I was sad to see that most CD shops I’ve come to know are now gone. And this was before the pandemic. Likely, the remaining ones were swept away this past year.
It’s sad, but bands are opening up to more accessible options of buying CDs, i.e., directly from their website, Amazon, or Mercari, to name a few.
You will still see 配布CDs being given out if you’d like to risk your wellbeing and attend a cramped basement live house in a country that still hasn’t begun 配布Vaccines for anyone under 65.
Thinking again about how good this ARUKARA live stream was, even though it was just a fixed camera in a studio.
Throwback to when my Mum brought me to the psychologist and lowkey Told him I wanted to be Asian.
I want to be skinny as them, But that’s it lmao.
I wanna be a japanese

People are so disillusioned and out of touch…especially in regards to relationships. I’ve seen a lot of relationships plagued by the concept of “freedom”, and I don’t think many people even understand there is no such thing. Ppl think that “doing whatever you want” = freedom, but more often than not, that just means you’re “free to be dumb”
Whether you realize it or not, you are submitting to SOME thing. Even if you’re “doing whatever you want” , you’re still submitting to some thing. Most ppl are in submission to their own ideas and feelings, which they’ve usually not explored or examined at the root. And so they’re astonished when those roots sprout up and bear unsavory fruits like chaos, drama, dysfunction, heartbreak, depression, etc…The only real freedom anyone has is in what they choose to submit themselves to.
Ppl will embrace these artificial feelings of “freedom” in relationships, which may certainly feel good in the moment, but ultimately do not yield anything life-giving or sustainable…thereby inviting chaos and the aformentioned woes. Meanwhile, concepts like boundaries, jealousy, possession/ownership, submission, etc. are so terribly misunderstood and percieved to be oppressive that ppl forsake them…not realizing that they’re also forsaking order, peace, function, and joy at the same time.
I tend to look at relationships like gardens. So many ppl want a pretty garden, but don’t want to submit to the principles and the wisdom required to plant and maintain that garden. So in the name of “freedom”, they’ll just throw some seeds (any seeds) on the ground and hope for the best. But for a relationship to be functional and to truly produce life, those “oppressive” concepts need to truly be understood. There’s an order to everything, and submitting to that order yields the proper results: you can’t have a beautiful garden without the key elements like soil, water, and sunlight. In the same way you’d put a fence around a garden, you set up boundaries to protect a relationship.
When you own something, the state of that posession is a reflection of you. It’s the same in a relationship. Relationships aren’t just some arbitrary things that exist outside of us. No they’re a DIRECT reflection of you. If you don’t own something, then you’re not accountable for or to it. But when something (or someone) belongs to you, then how you treat it…how you care for it…how you maintain it will be made manifest. If you own a garden and its overrun by weeds, and all the plants are dying…how is that going to make you look as its owner? But if you own a garden and it’s a beautiful sight to behold, and everything is glistening and glowing, and functioning as it should, then what is that going to say about you as its owner? If you value what your posessions, it will show.
And contrary to popular belief, jealousy isn’t envying others or coveting what’s not yours. No. It’s simply the instinct to protect what belongs to you. It’s no different than a mother bird watching over her baby chicks. Same vibe. If I own a garden, then you’re DAMN right I don’t want any strangers walking up and trying to plant whatever they want in it. Fuuuuck outta here lol. If you’re cool with that…well, at that point, it’s a community garden, and some ppl are into that …
I digress. I’m rambling. Writing my thoughts out is therapeutic in a way.
Genki and Koichi are looking gorgeous!!!
are 8SPB back???
Sometimes I’m just lost in dark, exhausted and kinda feel sad. It seems I can’t find my way out of it. I looked around everywhere. This place is an huge painful labyrinth, surrounded by insanity. Can I choose not to lose myself anymore? This anxiety deep inside me leads me to a wrong path. It seems I’m always on the search finding my light again although you know you shouldn’t be on the search anymore anyway or else the vampires come to you and take your energy away. Also you just forget you’ve already made it this far. Look, where are you standing now? You’ve made it this far 'cause you didn’t choose to give up 'cause everyday you managed to live on. Never forget this! Hiding in the dark is useless so show your scars proudly 'cause you got through this! You’re stronger than this nightmare! Go and change it , change your destiny, your attitude to move on. Leave unhealthy things behind, let it go this toxic darkness. And when you did that you’ll you bloom again. This light deep inside you, will bloom in your heart. Don’t let go of it! Play this Dark Souls game till the very end 'cause you know, success doesn’t come with a few empty tries. When you defeated this darkness, this pain, be proud of yourself 'cause you chose not to give up anymore. Now open your eye. Can you see this little sparkling light? Reach it and you’ll see an endless, beautiful sky filled with calmness. You’re now fully at ease and able to fly everywhere. Congrats, you’re finally free.
@CAT5 always gives those beautiful life lessons / reflections umprompted and I’m here for it, thanks
But I’d say this doesn’t only apply to relationships but also to life in general? Being free is nice but being 100% free in this world is… very unlikely? Almost utopic? In the end life is like the art of choosing what we will bound ourselves to. When we say “I want to be free” what it really means to me more often than not is “I’m not happy (anymore?) with the things I’m bound to” or “associated with” … be it people / relationships or job / tasks or roles / traits or whatever. In that sense I do wish for more freedom often but I can agree that it’s not the absolute some paint it to be IMO
had no idea gazettE stans called themselves SIXTHGUNS
feeling like a major boomer LMAO
or is this a “kpoppies gone vk” thing
Because i always feel they a obsessed with fandom names.
(Probably to make it easier to know who they have to bully and who not, because, “OMG they don’t stan my group”)
I don’t get why people are mean when the only thing you are trying to do is helping them. I guess some people don’t want to be helped, because they are so deep into their own pain and so selfish they don’t realise their life is going off-track and the only thing you want is to guide them a little. I’ve been doing that all my life, and I’ve suffered a lot from it. A lot of people I met don’t want to change and will never listen to you, even if what you are saying is to help them, just a bit, they refuse to change and they will always whine about their current situation without changing. I guess some people will never change and will never be helped. I tend to care more about myself lately, and I toss away people that hurt me, people that only want my kindness, people that only want to talk to me about their problems but don’t listen to me when I have my own ones. I guess the only person I can truly help is myself, oh yes, that I’ve realise. There might be exception, and I met someone lately that wanted to change and through our conversations, I helped myself while helping her (you know who you are).
So yeah, that was me, passing by.
Yes, I am fine, just a bit upset
On a brighter note, @Catness has become a good friend of mine. She cheers me up and I cheer her up ^^ So thanks
this is how I felt when I realized there was a B-T ~ stan twt ~ circle calling themselves fishtankers ( I’m okay with calling myself an universe bc it’s the kinda lame corny shit I expect from k-pop fandom kids but no this isn’t it )
I still say “Boners” being the official name for fans of The BONEZ is the worst one. Jesse speaks fluent English, and he’s spent a lot of time overseas, so I’m sure he’s well aware of what it means.
What the actual fuck is wrong with some people?! Some dude was trying to beat up his girlfriend in our work’s parking lot during peak hours.
We called the cops and he got arrested and his car was towed. His girlfriend managed to escape unharmed.
I wonder, how people like this get a girlfriend in a first place? I’ve seen a lot of stuff in this department while commuting to work. Sometimes it is mutual, but more often than not, it is one side abusing the other.
