Haven't read the piece yet, but the design on this motherlover... Candy!

My feeling is:

It's not about the truth. It's about them being recognized through the effort they put into their conviction. Most of them aren't crazy enough to actually believe it. Many of them believe it because it's a controversial subject - i.e. it causes people to get angry, not that it's actually of any value - and they want to feel like they know the truth, even if there's a ton of evidence against their belief three seconds of googling away.

Could it be maturation rather than shift in political views per se?

I'm just gonna leave it here saying I'm excited for the progress, as always.

I had to wait years to gain enough self-confidence to get it. Hearing that makes me feel great.

    I reckon it isn't exactly walkin' weather in Novosibersk


Thank you for a good advice - and for reminding that there's a way out.

Really? Reddit took some stuff from Hubski? Fascinating.

It's like I went up to the portal and saw a glimpse of the dark side for a moment.

Oh. "red[dit] scare". Got it.

I'm quietly falling apart. I'm anxious, overwhelmed and tired. The thoughts of self-harm are coming back, for the first time since months or even years.

I have several important uni projects pending, and I can't seem to make any progress in any of them. Two of them are already post-deadline, and I haven't even started making sense of them. I've skipped a month's worth of classes already, and only have enough in me to visit the classes I like or those where attendance is as much as you need to get a credit.

Tried to reach out with that to a couple of people. They didn't know what I'm talking about and didn't care to find out. Neither has shown me sympathy or empathy. Shit, it was me who ended up extending the hand, because I'm giving.

I have no idea what to do. All I know is that action breeds action: what you do defines what you do next. I'm gonna see if I can gather it and put myself through one of the tougher subjects I've been skipping tomorrow.

I'm giving a private lesson on Russian to Patrick, and as much as I am excited about it, I don't even have the basic materials for it. All because I can't do enough to make it to the search.

I'm a fucking mess.

You from there, by any chance?

Could you explain? I seem to be stuck at the Cold War "red scare".
