    LT: Dog had to forcefully puke because she ate 10+ pure chocolate eggs. That's incredibly dangerous for a dog of 7 kg, my poor lil bean could have died... Luckily we were in time and even though she's still shaken by puking 13 times, she'll be fine.

    LT: I know everyone's experience is different, but I don't really understand people with super low thresholds for embarrassment, and most of the time I don't get the "cringe". Like I once threw up in the middle of a history lesson in school when I was around 13, and that little baby of an experience doesn't even make it to the top 10 of my most embarrassing moments. Not even slightly. Not even that time I walked all around summer camp for like half an hour in front of everyone with my entire ass and back legs covered in blood without my knowledge, because no one had the heart to tell me. Some people would probably die being in my shoes, but for me it's just another day of being me.
    (My high school ski trip is probably the most embarrassing thing that ever happened to me, but, haha, that baby is going to my grave. I'm pretty sure all the teachers still remember and tell stories about that one every year, though.)

    I wish I wasn't embrassed easily. For me, I get secondhand embrassment from thinking how it would feel to be in their shoes in that moment. (Dang, I can't believe no me told you about the blood tho. That's sucks).

    @Starletka I admit, I am easily embarrassed (I have a lot of anxiety around socializing) but I'm not embarrassed for people unless they're embarrassed, if that makes sense. Idk, I also think socially we're often pressured to feel embarrassed about things we Shouldn't feel embarrassed about. But I have somewhat of a weird filter.

    LT: I live in Ontario, and gonna be honest, the fact we can't buy towels or socks now at our local Dollarama doesn't inspire 'wow we're helping small businesses' in me. It inspires 'wow I can't buy non-essentials easily without ordering from Amazon'. Basically all our stores only allow sale of 'govt-specified essentials'. Well, ok. People still need 'non-essentials' though, so we're going to buy from Amazon because that's one of the few online shopping sites that doesn't charge Canadians an arm and a leg. Of course, depends on your ability to do pick-up, which some people can do easier than others.

    I just feel probably, Ontario should ease up on small businesses a bit instead, as long as they follow safety measures. But everything here is a disaster, from the lockdowns, to the vaccination rollout, all of it.

    But tbh, I probably wouldn't be so annoyed if they weren't changing regulations week by week here. Plus my area right now (Toronto area, roughly) has the longest lockdown in North America. So you have places shut down for 300+ days now. I'm just constantly left wondering if anything interesting will be left. I keep hearing about business closure after business closure of anything somewhat niche.

    Honestly, I haven't thought too hard about how I'd ideally handle lockdown. It's just the way its handled here gives me a consistent sense our govt is also not sure how to handle all this and we keep getting yanked around.

    Oh neat, I live in Ontario too. Yeah, the pandemic policy in this province is a joke. Oh how I long for the day when we finally vote Ford out of office. Won't happen any time soon though given the state of the liberals and NDP.

    LT: This might sound a bit sappy, but lately I've been thinking about love. I've thought I was in love a handful of times, yet despite how convinced I've been of my own feelings, when those relationships ended I got over it so quickly that I have to wonder if I've ever been in love at all.

    Digging into my memories, I can't rekindle those feelings. I can't make myself experience it again. It's just a foggy notion that I was convinced of it at the time. I know it made me happy, and I know it made me suffer- usually far more of the latter than the former- but I don't know if it was 'real.'

    Does the real thing exist, and I've just never felt it? Or is romantic love always so fleeting that it's easily replaced with the mundane? The hedonic treadmill at work. I suppose I'll never know, but it's not going to stop me from getting all misty eyed when I see a good romance story.

    Honestly, I'm hoping for the day we can vote Ford out too. Idk, the politics here are so messy I also don't see it happening soon though

    LT: I fucking hate the Tories. That might not come as a surprise to some of you here but day after day things just seem to get worse and worse. Scottish independence is gaining a lot of momentum, Ireland is terrorised by riots not seen since the Troubles and could possibly be united by the end of the decade. Welsh independence is picking up its own steam too.

    Back in 2014 when Scotland had their own referendum I was firmly in the "stay united" camp, but not now. If the union completely comes apart I'll just feel slightly happier for those countries to be rid of Londons poisonous politics. Which makes me think about the union historically, and about England as a united country, about how all of it is built on bullshit, on the pride and greed of Kings that believed they could take what they want, that could shit from even greater heights onto the proletariat below. It's time to redraw the old lines, not only can the union itself not hold itself together under tory rule, but England as a whole. Let parliament govern their own little world of London and Essex, leave Wessex, East Anglia, Mercia and Northumbria to their own government, and maybe if/when we can prove that we can all come together under a union that isn't governed by blatant corruption, cronyism and lies upon lies upon lies, we can call ourselves a United Kingdom again.

    I've had a similar problem. There's really no way to know if any feeling is "real" looking back on it, not just that. You just have to trust how you feel at the time and try to make somewhat wise decisions based on it.

    I really feel for you guys. Things are not great in Canada and Ontario right now but it's absolutely nothing compared to the fiasco that is BoJo and the Tories. Brexit was just one giant middle finger to every person that works in a business that exports to the EU, and now this. The only silver lining here is that BoJo will likely go down in history as the man that destroyed the UK.

    For a second I thought you were talking about the existentialism of the concept of love too because I didn't see who you quoted. That was a weird train of thought.

    LT:

    Friend's been having some serious temper lately because of some unfortunate circumstances. I gave them some advice over it and I'm glad they took it pretty well. Listening very carefully to what is exactly upsetting someone does wonders.

    LT: My favorite band uploaded a new single. That really made my week. Kazakh people are really talented! Unfortunately I'm over my boyband-phase, so I can only fangirl over the music, but not over the people that make it.

    I think they're called 91, with Qiyalman, although not all of their songs are good, since I dislike rap quite a bit. I'm doing this game where I pick random countries and listen to their pop. Kazakhstan has definetly been number 1 for me so far. Thanks for listening lol

    LT: Not to be a downer, but I really do think that my life would be infinitely easier/better, if I was straight (if it was a choice, I wouldn't hesitate, I can assure you of that). And that's not a sympathy-seeking statement, that's just a sad fact. I have come to terms with it all, and I am trying to make the most of what I have, but ... there are days when everything just sucks.
