Random Thoughts/Things?

Random Thoughts/Things?

I wasn’t really sure what to call this thread, but I’ve had this idea floating around in my head for awhile now. Basically, anyone can post anything here. Any random thought you have, any random thing that happens to you, any random question that pops into your mind. Have fun, and don’t be afraid to be random.

Reccomendations of the Day - Positivity for Saturday 

Song: You and Me On The Rock by Brandi Carlile - a happy song about loving someone and appreciating life with them. Sort of country-sounding, very upbeat, and great vocals

Book: The Tea Dragon Society by Kay O'Neill - this is a cute, charming fantasy graphic novel with beautiful art. Though the storyline is a bit rushed in places, the art and aesthetics make up for it, and includes LGBTQIA+ representation. It's very calming and comforting if you're feeling sad <3

While you're on the CB, try: poetry! Check out the regular poetry thread on Pudding's Place, and try writing some of your own! You can also try out the poetry contest, also on PP.

Spread some love in the world: paint some rocks and hide them around your neighborhood for others to find.

Spread some love to yourself: make yourself some tea, hot chocolate, or whatever you like

And that's it for now! Love you all <3

I just came back from an escape room with some of my friends. I'm honestly still shaking. It was fun, though. We got it literally at the last second. I'm glad I (for some reason) brought a squishy-thingy (it was helpful to my friend mainly) and a notebook and pencil (we probably could've done it without it, but still, helpful). 

Also, I'm trying these markers that Mushroom gave to me for my b-day. I have no idea how to use markers, but whatever. At least I'm not actually starting with a human.... I was going to, but now I'm doing roses. They're cool.

I was today years old when I realized that I don't have to if I don't want to. Watch me rediscover this conclusion many many times more in the future...

it's really interesting how the demographics of the CB have shifted so much since the beginning? like some of the earliest threads on DtE are full of climate change denial. and around 2016 (i think) there was a bit of vaguely homophobic stuff floating around and a lot of endorsement of conservative candidates. and some heated debates about it. and now there are so many queer liberal people i can't even imagine climate change denial existing in this place, ever. like, this has been my main source of lgbtq+ education. i made my first openly queer friends here. i probably wouldn't even have realized i was queer  (at least, not as soon as i did) if it weren't for this place. huh. i think as a community, over time we've gotten so much more welcoming + accepting of people and it makes me really happy that this is a space people are comfortable sharing their idenitities and can be confident in the fact that they will be accepted and supported :)

(side note: i don't mean to equate liberal with accepting, seeing as this isn't always the case, and i certainly don't mean to equate conservative with climate change denial and homophobia as this certainly isn't the case much of the time. i also don't mean to imply endorsing conservative candidates is a bad thing: it only becomes a problem when these candidates start to say and do homophobic, racist, sexist, and other discriminatory things, because by endorsing a candidate you are endorsing their ideology. unfortunately, a lot of the time candidates with such harmful ideologies tend to skew conservative, but this is by no means a catch-all and there are definitely conservative candidates who are not racist, homophobic, sexist, or etc.)

note to admins: this is a general question, but how political are we allowed to get on the CB? <-- in answer to your question, we generally tend to steer away from political discussions because they often lead to heated discussions and subjects that might not yet be appropriate for our youngest users.

Strange... it feels as though I've been missing myself for a while and I came back just this morning...

You know you're different when life makes more sense than some people... idk what that's supposed to mean, but yeah.

Elli says gggwu. I think she's confused too.

It literally is confusion when you're sorta confused about not being confused when you're usually confused... and it literally isn't when you aren't confused about that fact.

I don't know why I go around looping words. I'll be the loopy character one day, you'll see...

Totally freaking out/having a gay crisis hahaaa

Was just laying in bed last night after being awake for 18 hours straight and all I wanted to do was sleep but my brain has been weird lately and all of a sudden it jumped me with "hey you've got a crush on your best friend here's an overwhelming amount of evidence to prove it from the past five years" 

And now I've just been going insane trying to process and wondering if it's romantic or platonic or if I'm just kidding myself

any help or advice would be really cool lol I'm in a panic mode

Oh, me too! I have no advice (yep, that's right, resident advice giver is at a loss for words) but I will say that it… Might get better. Maybe. I believe in you, good luck <33

My brother just pointed out that we eat pizza from the inside out. Now I can't stop thinking about it.

On Saturday I went to the mall with two of my friends. I had two weird experiences. 

1#. I was in a store called Spencers. And I was looking at the shirts with with my friend...when this kid who was clearly older than us asked.."How old are you?" To that I responded in a weirded-out voice "Uuuuh. Twelve. Why." AND THEN....he askes.."Can you buy something for me?" I didn't even have ten dollars. So I said no...but it was still weird.

2#My two friends, sister and I were heading back to the food court. I was walking a bit faster than everyone, and my friend called me to slow down (I'll use my name on here) "Reuby wait up!".....but then...these three guys behind us started yelling "Yeah Reuby. Wait up Reuby..REUBY!" It was the weirdest thing...
