I hate when people say money doesn’t buy you happiness. it does. it buys you financial stability, a nice house, nice cars, nice vacations and trips, healthier food, a better education, etc. like wearing burberry while driving around in an audi would probably make me pretty happy too. but it’s just that rich people often take their comfortable lives for granted and end up being spoiled and ungrateful for what they have
Money doesn’t take my depression and anxiety away.
Ugh, I’m sorry, but I hate posts like this.
Yes, I get it, money can solve a lot a problems, but for me, the point isn’t “money can’t ever make you happy,” it’s “if you focus all your time worrying over money, whether you have it or you don’t, you’re going to be miserable.” If all you do is think about money, you forget to appreciate the stuff that you have in your life and take it for granted.
I already worry about finances enough irl, I don’t need other people bitching about it here.
Friendly reminder that you’re allowed to like a thing without knowing every single fact about the thing
You’re allowed to like a movie without having to know every crew member’s name
You’re allowed to like a book without having to memorize every page
You’re allowed to like a video game without having to know all the Easter eggs and cheat codes
You’re allowed to like things and not be an expert on things
Liking things isn’t supposed to be stressful
There’s a new villager in town! Why don’t you go welcome him?
Bunny Pretends to Not Notice the New Dog
Thanks, Samantha and bunny Elmo! Samantha writes:
I recently rescued a dog and she is infatuated with Elmo, who is a little upset that he doesn’t have my full attention anymore. This picture is of one of the first days they met. Elmo was putting so much effort into ignoring her, which was not easy with her staring at him.
This is pretty ridiculous
when your headphones break and there is only sound from one side
Theyre having a nice time
In order to become the supreme adult, you must perform the seven wonders:
- Public speaking
- Not being afraid of teenagers
- Calling the doctor yourself
- Arguing without crying
- Having a normal sleep pattern
- Having an answer to the question ‘what do you want to do with your life?’
- Not really. I know quite a lot of adults who aren’t great speakers, but are still competent in their job. You only have to have good speaking skills if you plan on doing jobs that require good communication: teachers, lawyers, entertainment, politics, any leadership role really.
Like, as long as you have basic social skills, you’re fine. And like any other skill, public speaking can be conquered with practice. Even the best professors I know still get nervous.
- Bitch, with the “knock out” game being an actual thing, EVERYONE should be afraid of teenagers. Teenagers should be afraid of teenagers.
No but seriously, most grown-ups aren’t really afraid, just annoyed sometimes.
- Eh. Depending where you go, you can set up appointments online or send an email. Although, getting over phone call phobia makes life much easier.
- Welp, there are places that do it for you instead of doing it yourself. Yeah, you can “groan” all you want for making that a responsibility, but for the most part, if you tax right, you get LOTS of money back and idk why that isn’t enough motivation for everyone to get their taxes done. I mean, MONEY.
- Not…really? I mean, yeah, you may have to be composed in certain situations, but Jesus Christ, you’re allowed to cry even as an adult. It’s not like adults magically stop crying…?
- Haha, nope. That’s the “responsible” thing to do, but everyone I know still don’t sleep normal at night. Sometimes, things like work and life still keep us from having regular sleeping routines. But eh, that’s what coffee’s for.
- Uh…okay? Hey, I’ve been there and I still am asked that question. But you know what? When I got older, I got thick skin and stopped caring (for the most part) what people thought about my life. Is it annoying? Sometimes.
But what I want to remind everyone is that when people ask that, they don’t mean it maliciously or are trying to make you uncomfortable. For the most part, people (especially those who are older than you) want to just get to know you, but don’t know where to start. So they ask about your plans/future/job to get an idea what kind of person you are or what your interests are.
Not sure about family and relatives, but as for friends/acquaintances, this applies for the most part. Idk, that’s just my opinion on that question.
