@boyrrito: @Glume: thanksgiving is now over, so the christmas season is beginning. i'm sorry i wasn't online on thursday to talk! i was busy with my own family, and i had a really awkward thanksgiving, which is better than a bad one, i suppose. i did a bit of shopping online on black friday, not much, but enough to get started on buying gifts for my loved ones. i agree with you glume that the gift-giving part of the holiday feels superficial. i love the idea of giving to my friends, but having a set time for it makes it feel less natural. christmas songs and movies are going to be playing at all times and i'm not excited at all for that, but it is what it is. cheers to the end of thanksgiving! and good luck for the rest of the holiday season. <3

@Totalanimefan: thank you! and you're right, it thankfully is just the one day.

maybe you have seasonal depression. maybe the holidays give you anxiety. maybe you can't stand spending time with your family. maybe you don't have anyone to spend your holidays with. that's ok! this thread is here so you don't have to go it alone <3

this is a space to vent and get help from others because the holidays can be a particularly stressful time for a lot of people.

NOTE: if you need to vent about something particularly triggering, such as sexual assault or suicidal ideation, please put it behind a spoiler with a warning as a courtesy to others.

@Totalanimefan: i checked the temperature for right now and it's in the 40's. i've never been to any place colder than the bay area so i wouldn't know, but i guess you're right that the 40's is still cold o3o

i'm about to take a nice warm shower and then get underneath a blanket so the socks will have to wait until tomorrow. (damnit) but i'll be glad to put them on in the morning lol.

thank you for the warm wishes! also i'll be back online in a bit if you still want to talk :p

@Totalanimefan: personally i like the cold more than the heat, but i can see why you wouldn't like it. one time years ago i made a post along the lines of "it's so cold" and my friend from the east coast chewed me out for complaining about like 40 degree weather when it actually snows over there lol. the way i see it though, you can always layer up and get underneath a blanket when it's cold, but when it's hot you can't take off all your clothes! and even if you did, what if it's STILL hot? there's an exception to that rule for me today bc i've been barefoot all day and my feet are freezing. i haven't done as much laundry as i should so i'm running low on socks and i gotta save em for tomorrow when i leave the house. anyway, idk if i'll be online much during thanksgiving, so i'll wish you a happy one now! hope you get to spend time with people you love

@Totalanimefan: i know right? absolutely wild

@deaa: i'm doing good! i've been having bad dreams but i'm trying to focus on them less. other than that, i'm just trying to chill and enjoy thanksgiving week even though the idea of being around my family all day tomorrow stresses me out lol. at least i got to make a "wack sh*t our family does" bingo card for me and my siblings :p

Posted in Top 5 spookiest movies you've seen Posted 4 years ago
i'm not sure what i'd pick for the spookiest movie i've ever since, since i'm a horror junkie and trying to remember which movies scared me and how gets hard after you've seen way too many to count. but i can definitely tell you about my favorite horror movies ^_^ i have a little bit of eccentric tastes though, so they probably aren't for everyone :p

  • Clive Barker's Hellraiser (stylish, sexy, gory fun. not very scary though in my opinion)
  • RAW (definitely not for the faint of heart)
  • The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (pretty self-explanatory. specifically the original though, i haven't seen the remake)
  • Creep (i didn't like the sequel as much but the original is amazing)
  • A Nightmare on Elm Street (this was my very first horror movie so it holds a special place in my heart <3)
Posted in I am so angry at my dad right now Posted 4 years ago
ugh that's so awful. i'm sorry you have to deal with that. my grandpa's the same way so i intentionally avoid talking to him. i really wish there was some way to get people to realize that like misogyny is bad. but they say you can't teach an old dog new tricks, so i guess it's true.

anyway, i'm also sorry to hear about the kpop star. it can be really difficult when someone you look up to passes, especially due to suicide. if you ever want to talk to anybody about it, i'm here <3
