10:50pm. clouds! we have clouds again!
i got a spam message on facebook that begins “Hello Elliott, I would like to share friendly ideas and feelings with you” and then I can’t read the rest because it was deleted as spam. i am v disappointed. i want to share friendly ideas and feelings :(
Today I learned that the Curiosity sang itself ‘Happy Birthday’ on its year anniversary of being on Mars.
Hundreds of thousands of miles from anyone or anything.
Guys I am depressed over robots now.
oh god this is the saddest thing i have ever read
Guys, shhh. No, this isn’t sad.
Curiosity isn’t hundreds of thousands of miles from anyone or anything. Curiosity has Spirit, Opportunity, Mars 3, Sojourner, Viking 1, and Viking 2 to keep him company on the red planet.
Opportunity is still exploring; Spirit, while still functional, is stuck in a crater, so cannot move around very much. The rest of them are quiet, asleep; old and beautiful and dignified in their silence
Curiosity sang Happy Birthday to himself and he had Spirit and Opportunity with him—and he had an entire planet down below to celebrate his life, his achievements, his brilliance
Curiosity sang Happy Birthday to celebrate an entire year of doing what he was designed to do; an entire year of exploring a planet on which he was not born, an entire year of roving and collecting information
an entire year of Mars becoming his home to share with his precursors, several of which are miraculously still doing their jobs (Opportunity was only expected to last 90 days; he’s lasted TEN YEARS)
it was a song of absolute euphoric joy, not one of loneliness
Curiosity is the exact opposite of lonely; he has hundreds of thousands of people down below who adore him, family at ground control to communicate with him constantly; and plenty of kin on the red planet’s surface to keep him company.
This is the exact opposite of sad.
We didn’t abandon the Mars robots. We sent them home.
i used to clean while dissociated and i’d put things in the weirdest places. like once i put the telephone under the sofa and my mind was like “yeah, that seems right.”
pros of turning 18: can legally do the stuff i already do
cons of turning 18: no longer the dancing queen
i think im gonna lay down…………
THE LAW! you all thought i was going to bed! justice never sleeps, haha suckers
Labeling the crushes young children have on same-sex peers as “inappropriate (read: too sexual) for a family audience” tells me two things: that you are a homophobe, and that you cannot conceive of innocent sexless love between young gay children. So basically you are twice a homophobe.
my dog walked across my face to sneeze in my ear
does anyone have any tips for fighting derealization? thank you
this has a whole bunch of great techniques :)
i usually pick something in the room and describe it to myself
and then i just… it’s hard to explain, but stop thinking and just see it? and exist alongside with it? this part is super hard to explain
if that doesn’t work then i rub something cold/hot/smooth on my palm or run something along my skin, i have to change the “something” up a lot but it does help.
this post is good, thank you!!!!
does anyone know anything that helps when you are depersonalized / when you feel like you are about to depersonalize?
