    One should never be afraid to live the life they desire. You're way of life does not harm other people or creatures, so I see or have never seen any issues with you. I still think you are as adorable as ever!

    I agree with @Rebel Brony 42, we're always going to be here for you as your friends, but there is only so much that we can do to help you, especially online. Some of it is on you to get out there and just do it. It's that Nike motto- Just do it. Even if you absolutely hate working, your never going to get anywhere in life without a job, so you really do just have to push yourself to get out of your bed and just do it. It's not going to be easy, and it may not be pleasant, but having a job is the first step in being successful in life. Once you get going you may find it easier to continue as well. Maybe try reaching out to a recruitment office, someplace that can help you find a job that's suitable for you, they can work with you and you can even try out several different jobs within a few weeks as a "test run" to see if you find one that you like- it's what my cousin did because he too was struggling to find a job. They may even help you set up transportation to and from your job as well. But again, while others can help you along the way, and as your friend I can help encourage you and offer my two cent take on things, it really is up to you to get going, because no one is going to do that for you other than you.

    Here is some reality. The vast majority of women only want the top 20% of guys. So if you're not at least a 8, forget about it. I have, and my life is better for it. I get up at 4:30 and work 12 hours, outside in the heat of the summer and the freezing of winter. I have worked in Canadian winters and southern summers. You just get up and do it. But that is why I have a lot of money saved and I can buy things without worrying. Nobody is going to hand you stuff. We all hate work. You just do it. I don't say these things to make you feel bad. I say them because it is the cold reality. It takes strong moral character to over come life. Start simple. Get a job, even of you hate it. Save money and look for a better job. Build a resume. Show employers that you aren't afraid to work. 90% of life is just showing up and doing what you're told.

    I am glad to hear it. We have a community here of those who at least WANT to believe that friendship is magic, and is worth fighting for.

    If they affect my friends they affect me. That's one of the definitions of friendship.

    Religion really is a touchy subject, I actually became religious after reading the bible when I was around 15 myself and wasn't overly pressured to Catholicism (I just decided based on it based of the main interpretation of the bible being closest to mine), I personally believe religion is a personal journey to God

    That's true. Im speaking about morale though, I simply can't stand people who are against LGTBQ, neither those who support Trump. I won't feel forced to be their friends.

    Not too much to add here I didnt write on discord already. It is great you found this way for yourself! ❤️ Also, many of us have...some weird quirks, as society views us, starting from liking ponies meant for 7yo girls. Apart from being a hoarding dragon in general myself....I think my 60k magic cards lying around in my room waiting to get sorted and sorted over and over again...would quite scare some people.

    The Oscars itself isn't really the main point of this blog post though. The main point is how Trump mocks a film for winning best picture solely based on its country of origin. So I guess to Trump, any film that is not from "MuRiCa" isn't good enough to win best picture. The fact that Trump isn't guaranteed to lose this upcoming election should depress people due to how pathetic this country really is.

    I don't really care about the Oscars, but I will say that Trump's comment on Parasite's win is quite obviously xenophobic. Also, the Irishman won no awards... At all... Yet they gave one to Once Upon a Time in Hollywood? Also, "Gone with the Wind?" Really? That movie is 80 years old... They're for movies made THAT year, and of course leave it to a moron like Trump not to realize that.

    Sound very nice to have medication, and being able to get your life back again! I am currently following most of your steps taken on this forum, as you inspire me to post as well.

    My story is somewhat similar. For some reason the "FlutterGuy" clip showed up on my YouTube one day. I watched it and thought it very funny. I wasn't sure if it was a fan dub or not, so I downloaded the whole first season. I planned on watching until I found the FlutterGuy clip so i could see if a fan had dubbed a male voice in. I became hooked after the first two episodes. I did enjoy them, but due to being an anime fan, I was slightly disappointed that the Nightmare Moon story line wasn't going to be the whole first season. I binged the first season, and then only had to wait a couple of weeks for season two to start.

    Society shapes us, that's true. Our family, people we meet, teachers, tv, everything! I believe that some people are able to escape those influences to a certain degree though.

    I always respect other people's religious beliefs, even as my dad was bigoted towards Catholics and I was an atheist for some time. I don't let people just disagreeing with me being bi get to me anymore even as I don't agree with them. I've been a syncretist of Christianity and Buddhism for about a year now, and it really gives me the motivation to endure hardship and move past any kind of silliness.

    Religion is always a touchy subject. Some people rely on it to live, to shape their lives and to guide them. Others use it as a weapon to control the world around them. But what i have learned is, paying respect to people's belief is the most important. Some religious texts are enlightening and can help in daily life, defeat depression, make all kind of wonders. It can even give you friends similar to what we have at this forum, having a common thing behind the friendship always help.

    Friendship includes a few fights as well. Only people that have been through fights together and are still together have achieved a great friendship. Problem is, you don't want to try to fight a friend just to get to that point

    I’m from there but I don’t necessarily support it 100%. Our gov is really skewed and it sickens me how a lot of the times good things only come to those who are white and/or have a lot of money. The main thing is that it seems like it’s all over the place. That’s all I have to say about it, really.

    Thanks for the advice, I'll try to apply it to my life. It makes me feel a little better knowing that I'm not alone in this. And I hope you feel better, because feeling this way is terrible.

    In a small way I understand how taking a break feels unproductive and useless. The problem with this is that you eventually feel you have to work more and more and more and you start to burn out. Once you start to burn out you start to feel bad because you really want a break but you feel like it’s a waste of time. I really believe taking breaks now and then would really ease your mind if you let them. Allow yourself to have a bit of peace and quiet every now and then. It gives your mind a chance to think more rationally if it doesn’t have a million other thoughts swirling around.

    Update on this. Turns out he is already going forward with something against these sites. Hilarious how he did essentially nothing during this pandemic (and he sat around for months doing nothing while it made its way here) but Twitter calls him out on his lies and immediately he jumps forward to go against them. https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/trump-is-set-to-announce-an-executive-order-against-social-media-companies/ar-BB14GKRP?OCID=ansmsnnews11 Depending on how far he takes this, it will cause extreme backlash.

    Yeah, there's no way he would shut down social media because he doesn't have the power to do that. If he did then there'd be a worldwide riot and a revolution combined.

    I am the same as @Princess of Luck 🍀⚡🔥, in that I cannot understand the will to hurt myself. Mostly because I am too scared of doing so. And I have seen some scary things in my life, which might be out of scale to what we talk about on an emotional level. I remember hurting myself once to get a point across, but I regretted it badly. It hurt, and it didn't change anything for the better of for the worse. I have never felt more ashamed, not for myself, but for the people around me that I tried to reach in such a stupid way. I also understand you situation @ElectricEnergy⚡, as I read your topic in Life Advice, but I couldn't respond. The religious part of your life is very strong, and nothing I will say can change that. I can only say that you are with us for a reason. You are here with me, and the rest of the people at the forum, and we all enjoy your company! We want to keep seeing you here!

    I really want to give advice, but I'm honestly going through similar problems right now. Sure I might seem all cheery on forums, but it's kinda of a front I put on to hide how depressed I really feel. I probably feel 80% of what you said in the blog too. Talentless, feeling like a waste-of-time, loneliness, demotivated. Maybe I might not feel them as deeply as you do, but I am in a similar boat to you. I know that this probably doesn;t make you feel better, but I'm just saying, you are not alone. There's many people out there. Most of all, don;t take your life or hurt yourself over this please. Like I feel terrible but I have never considered doing those things, since I'm more scared of being hurt than anything else.

    Thanks, and it seems like I've been in a rut for a few years now. I just want to get out of it. I've been this way for about two and a half years now.

    @Nsxile @Bas @Sunamena @Lyra Heartstrings TR @PoisonClaw Thank you all so much for your support and positive words. <3 It truly means a lot. To think, right before I posted this blog originally I was actually incredibly worried, but it seems that worry was entirely unwarranted. I am glad I posted this. It makes me feel a sort of relief within myself, you know? Like me knowing that I'm not afraid to just be me. It has a much larger impact on me than some might think. With that said, I now give hugs to you all. *hugs to you all*

    What do I even respond to this? Never ever trust anything off the internet that says you can get something for free, especially money. That includes gold, and other pleasures. PayPal is safe to use. It is pretty much the only payment method allowed on Ebay nowadays. Still, be caution. The scams, pyramid scams, fake stuff you find on the internet, fake ratings, fake everything. It draws people in, especially vulnerable ones. I don't want you or your family to get hurt, ok?

    Well, you can have fractional numbers in binary as well, just that they are not exactly used like that. Normally, yea, you could represent one half as 0.1, one quarter as 0.01 and three quarters as 0.11. However, in computers, fractional numbers come in two types - fixed point and floating point. Fixed point, as the name suggests, has the decimal point in the same place all the time. It's essentially an integer that you always divide by some number (for example, you count cents, then divide that by 100 and display it as Euros). This is useful for operations involving money and similar where accuracy is important (more on that later), but you do not need to move the decimal point arbitrarily. Floating point numbers come in a few types, but they all work like the "scientific notation" works in decimal. Just like you can represent 0.034 as 3.4*10^-2 or 3.4e-2, the same is done in binary - there is a part of the variable that shows the "value", called mantissa and a part which shows where to put the decimal point, called the exponent. The space for those parts is limited, so you get limited precision - adding 1e10 + 1e-20 you will lose the small part, since the mantissa may not have enough space to represent the whole value. Just imagine having a limited amount of space to write the numbers after the decimal when writing the format 1.2345e5. So, when you do operations with floating point numbers, you lose a little bit of precision, which makes it a problem if you use floating point to calculate money. Floating point has another problem - just like in decimal, some numbers have infinite number of digits after the decimal. Representing 0.1 (decimal) in binary is like representing 1/3 in decimal. So, with floating point, 0.1*2 may be a little different than 0.2. This can be shown in decimal as well. 1/3 is 0.(3), but if you had limited amount of space and no way to signify that the 3 is repeating, you would have tow write it as 0.3333. Now, multiply that by 3 and you get 0.9999, but the real value is 1. Even better, 2* (1/3) = 2* 0.3333 = 0.6666, while 2/3 = 0.6667.
