I finally have a better idea what to put on an #introductions.
I generally enjoy the aesthetics of casinos/gambling and especially jesters.
Nothing is more important to me than my friends.
CW: Vore-focused discussion centered around a lack of consent during interactions in the community and why that's a problem
Did a write-up on a widespread problem in the vore community (and one that I deal with constantly): Consent!

Asking for help, looking for somewhere to move
I can't remember if I asked here, but does anyone have a room I can move into?
I can pay for it, but I really want to move out of this shitty fucking city. But due to my unemployment it makes moving on my own difficult. :/
Most apartments won't accept "Yeah people on the internet pay my bills don't worry about it"
I had such a fantastic day yesterday. Not a single plan of mine worked the way I thought it would, but it was still just amazing being surrounded by friends that showed how much they enjoy me and care about me.
This post probably sounds like sarcasm based on my general tone, but I'm being 100% sincere. I hope all my birthdays can be like that in the future.
I massively prefer spending time with friends today. I don't like, want to ruin whatever positive associations people have with Valentine's day, but I really just dislike sort of being told to like, dedicate a day to deciding who gets the Valentine's day trophy.
If you are reading this, then you can be my Valentine. Let's spend the day doing things we like with people we love, in all the manifold ways that can present.
listen, i don't make the rules
Obviously, looking back. As part of "treat others as THEY want to be treated", if you desire an apology, please let me know.
I have nothing but love for my friends, and I realize that I'm not always great at expressing it, and just saying "I love you" can become as hollow as saying I'm sorry (though unlike I'm sorry, I will continue to use I love you because I do think that one resonates better, even if sometimes overstated).
I hope I can continue to become a better person through solidifying this path forward.
In any case, it's something solidified in me, from now on, going forward. However, I am not a mind reader, so I hope that people will be willing to approach me and let me know when I have crossed a line and treated them in an unsatisfactory manner. I will do my part to try and ask ahead of time how they wish to be treated, but that's a broad question, and I don't expect comprehensive answers from everyone I ask. So all I can do is hope to remain approachable.
That said, thanks--very amusingly--to Microsoft for changing their code of conduct on Xbox and instating "The Platinum Rule". Basically realizing that the Golden Rule that many of us were taught as children is insufficient. There are people out there that like to be borderline abusive to each other in teasing and behavior. So the Platinum Rule states that you treat people how THEY want to be treated.
I dunno why it took me this long to realize that consider that's also more or less the dom rule
I don't like receiving apologies either, for these reasons, they feel hollow and insincere. I'd rather just talk out the situation with someone and try to reach an understanding with another person, so that further fighting doesn't happen. I don't enjoy fighting with friends, I don't try to fight with friends, it reminds me very much of competition, stuff ingrained from capitalist conditioning that I'm not happy with and eager to leave behind.
