Things That Are on Your Mind

The rise of such short bite-sized content on places like TikTok and YouTube Shorts is shortening everyone’s attention span and draining society to a concerning degree.
I think this is made worse by the fact that information is treated as a feed on social media, and it's an endless stream and we get overwhelmed realizing there's no way we'll be able to get through it all, so we favor minimal engagement heavily focused on visuals and such so we can scroll through our feeds to consume as much of it as possible with the least amount of time spent on each post. It's a very superficial way to absorb information but it's honestly the only way to process the massive amounts of content without overload.

But yeah, it has some horrible impacts on our ability to process information more deeply for longer periods.

I feel so dumb and it's hilarious lol.
So for the past... almost a year, I've been borrowing my friend's premium crunchyroll account. Recently it ran out, and considering we're kinda estranged I don't want to message him and be like "HEY PAY MORE MONEY ON THAT SERVICE YOU NEVER USE".
And so for the past month I've been pretty bummed. I have My Hero Academia season 6 and the second part of Spy x Family season 1 coming out in October. And because I'm unemployed, I can't justify spending $100 on a subscription. But then
But then I realized
It only costs $8
To get crunchyroll premium for a month
Why didn't I think of this before
I am incredibly slow
This is excellent

2 years ago today, I was feeling proud of a novelization of a video game plot I was writing for a friend, and decided to share it in a fansite Discord for the franchise of said game. I didn't get any feedback, so I went to their forums to share it. I got some feedback there, which was nice, but eventually I realized that my writing on it sucked so I abandoned the project and haven't logged back into that forum since.

From one writer to another, I know this feeling very well!
I figure it's a good thing though - it means you have progressed as a writer between then and now.

Had a brain CT scan this morning due to a headache pain I have been feeling for around a month and the results came back to my doctor showing nothing abnormal. Hopefully it is just stress related, gotta try and relax more.
Thank god it's not showing anything!! It's very likely it's because of stress. You had a lot on your mind. Especially with your mom's situation. It isn't an easy time you're going through Jims. I hope when things get better your headache will go away :hug: :hug:
