Feeling like a real adult because I'm doing laundry *before* getting to the desperation point

People who are so mad that literally anything exists that isn't specifically for them - go jump in the sun

I feel particularly annoyed by this because SNL is one of the reasons I thought for a long time that I didn't like comedy very much.

Also I kept being distracted by how many characters Tilda Swinton plays ๐Ÿ˜‚

Most horror movies don't need more than 90 minutes and it's 152 ๐Ÿ˜ฉ

I enjoyed the new Suspiria but it's really long and messy

At a meetup to see Suspiria (2018) and this guy is telling me I won't be able to enjoy it because I've seen and live the original

My dude

I'm feeling so attacked by this season of Bojack

I don't want to be Diane

When someone responds more to subtweets than being told directly to their faces I think that means they only care if they think other people can see. Right? Otherwise idgi

My workplace is the exception because we rarely do crunch (rarely but not never).

I don't know of a single AAA studio that doesn't crunch for months on end.

I'm glad that games industry labor practices are getting attention but I feel like we are not going to get very far if we pretend that Rockstar and Telltale are particularly exceptional in this regard.

So weird and awful to think that I used to just assume people around me are gonna lash out at me in low times

How awesome it is to know now that it doesn't have to be that way

That's probably obvious to a lot of people but it's opposite to how I grew up - I just expect everything (esp people close to me) to be awful when I'm stressed. (Probably the main reason my reflex is to withdraw tbh)

I think one of the things I'm realizing about people who require more effort on my part to maintain boundaries is that those relationships become exponentially more draining in times of stress

"The holidays" aka spoopy season

Season's greetings aka screams of terror and delight
