At what point do we make it socially unacceptable to keep using Facebook? What does Facebook have to do for that to happen? It feels like we just keep making more excuses: "I only use Facebook2[Instagram]", "Facebook is friends with all of my friends and I'll be socially isolated", "I'm monetarily dependent on Facebook", "Sure facebook knows they are harming me, but they also do X that I like".
We are all in an abusive relationship. What will it take to walk away?
Always gotta be weaponizing the avoidance 👼
I have a task that I need to finish this evening that involves sitting down and doing a relatively minor amount of like, gut excavation (just thinking about what I want my involvement in a project to look like, really nothing wild) and I have gotten so many other non-thinking tasks knocked off my list while trying to swerve away from the thinking task lol
Its great too cause the person I make/eat food with the most often doesn't really like spicy or sour, and I really do, so its like the perfect equalizer for our shared meals.
A few weeks ago I needed 1 scotch bonnet pepper for a curry but they only had a pack of like 10 I could buy, so I sliced the rest of them up along with an onion and a random sad chunk of cabbage, packed it in a glass jar and quick pickled it (1/2 white vinegar 1/2 water with a little salt and sugar, bring to a boil, pour into the jar with the veg, throw it in the fridge) it is absolutely the most perfect spicy crunchy condiment and I am so pleased with myself
....or sometimes they spend the last 100 pages getting extremely christian and then the bubonic plague comes and everyone dies??? That was easy lol
I can't tell if its intentional but it feels like some authors are better than others at like, helping ease the reader with the transition? Like they make it a little boring at the end so you're ready to be done, or the characters age so it feels more OK and less premature
Also there was nobody at the the reception when I got there so I had to wander through several funerals to find someone, it was weird.
