    She works at it—she puts effort into this seemingly effortless phenomenon.

I've been trying to get my partner on board with this. She's long maintained that I have this superpower when it comes to people. She thinks I "connect" with them instantly and socialising is like breathing for me.

Not true. It just looks like it. There is a lot of effort put into both maintaining friendships I have, and creating new ones. Hanging out being a core component. Along with the effort, it's a lot of fun, and I go a bit loopy without interaction. Lockdown? I needed socialising so I befriended a bunch of Australian's online and now I've attended two of their weddings.

Oh god maybe she's right. Maybe it's like breathing for me, in the sense that I need it..

Anyway that was a lovely read, and I also want to get the book now.

Was thinking the same thing about getting book, and reflecting on the lack of art in my bathroom! Might need to print up a photo or two to put in there.

Online but not on Hubski? Suspicious...

I've got a proper print of this in our bathroom, it's an NZ beer. Not great beer. Honestly one of my least favourites they've put out, but I loved the name and the aesthetic.

    Suspicious...

I am unfortunately cheating on all of you with a rambunctious Discord group.

Once upon a time Elysian Brewing Company did a short run of 'AK-47 Malt Liquor'. It was, by all accounts, wretched. But the T-shirt was uproariously offensive. I miss it.
