Don’t find fulfillment in your career. Find fulfillment in the hobbies you have, adventures you go on, and people you help because you have the financial freedom to do so. If you love your job that’s awesome, but this isn’t realistic for many people.
I know that airports are traditionally hated by everyone for the constant rush and anxiety, but for me, I love them. The feeling of sitting in a seat (especially at night) watching so much happen around me reminds me how small I am in relation to the rest of the world, and I love this feeling so much. Does anyone else feel like this in airports?
Make sure you preface your request by asking that people only choose party-specific songs (or whatever other preference you have).
Also, have a bunch of your own party songs pre-loaded on the play-list to give people an idea of mood/genre.
Disclaimer: For many people, this is an LPT for post COVID. I hope everyone is keeping safe in the meantime.
Regarding the risk of people adding silly songs to the playlist / adding duplicate songs: ensure you do an audit on the day of the party, and lock the playlist so no-one can make further edits.
If you are concerned with what the flow of music at the party will be like: ask people to stick to a couple of specific genres.
Regarding 'giving people homework' before a party: you don't have to make it compulsory.
I don't have tolerance for people who try to push their beliefs on others, especially when it comes to diet, fitness, bodies, etc. I have a big issue with the body acceptance/fat acceptance movements but usually keep my opinions to myself unless I'm asked. I also have a problem with the corny "be positive/love yourself" mindset.
Well I gained some weight over the past year. No excuses, I just stopped caring about what I ate and drank and packed on the pounds. I'm working on fixing it, but obviously it doesn't happen overnight. Me and another woman were commiserating our break outside, and this woman "Nicole" from another group came up and inserted herself into our conversation.
It turns out she doesn't like diet talk, so she was trying to push us away from it. Me and the other girl kept moving the talk back, because she was struggling too and we wanted to talk about it.
Well Nicole interrupts and says "You guys are spending so much of your mental time and energy talking about this. You need to focus on loving yourselves!"
I side eyed her and said "Uh, I do love myself, that's why I'm doing this."
Nicole said "No, but if you really practice self love and self acceptance, you won't spend so much of your time obsessing over every little pound. Love your body for what it is and what it can do for you!"
Honestly I was just like... who the fuck is this woman? Why does she think she and barge in and interrupt my conversation with my friend? I tried to play it off nicely, but it really pissed me off.
She kept going on about self love and body positivity and blah blah blah. So I just had it.
I said "So you're saying you would be okay with switching bodies with me and looking like I look?"
She looked kind of shocked and said "Well.... I mean..." and she just kind of trailed off. Her face got all red.
I said "Right, so if you wouldn't be all loud and proud and happy if you had this body, why should I? And why should you get to tell me how to think about my body? How is that your place?"
She looked like she was about to cry and she left without another word. The friend I was with cracked up after this and we continued talking. I guess Nicole's group heard about the whole debacle and a few of them told me that she was just trying to help us have "a more positive outlook" and that I made her feel bad.
I do most of the cooking for me and my partner because I like to. I need some more variety tho and was hoping for some inspiration, I know it’s a simple question but I’d love to get more ideas.
We decided we’re sick of pasta, I love pasta but we’ve been eating a LOT of it lately because it’s cheap and so good. Dishes I’ve been making a lot lately: cheesy rice with broccoli and chicken, PASTA (spaghetti, pesto, ravioli, lasagna, etc), ground beef in general (I have made hamburger helper, chili, and tacos a lot lol)...and we are feeling burnt out on these things.
We aren’t picky eaters and we like rice, potatoes, all veggies, chicken, shrimp, any other kind of beef, anything really. Asian style noodles would be okay I’m just done with Italian. Just looking for some new ideas :)
Edit: just wanted to say a collective TYSM to everybody posting recipes! Didn’t expect such an amazing response, you guys are super creative and I appreciate this community 💕 I’m reading all and taking notes lol.
