Review of "The Time Traveler's Wife By Audrey Niffenegger" (4 stars): Surprisingly good story that's not too corny

What does it mean if you don't have impostor syndrome, even though you probably should have? *insert "are you even good enough to have impostor syndrome" meme*

@thebiologist1117 Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it.

Most of our actions aren't chosen, they're a reaction.

Review of "Die Ermordung des Commendatore 02" (5 stars): Don't trust my judgement on this, I like Murakami books too much

I fell victim to the workification of games: I'm playing No Man's Sky (again).

I feel stupid doing virtual tasks, just so I can buy virtual goods, to have a bigger and better virtual vehicle, all after coming home from my real job, but not living that kind of materialistic lifestyle. I guess I'm just compensating? 🤔

The game got better by a lot since release tho 🙃

🇺🇦, bundle

There are famous games like Celeste, Bleed, Minit, Baba is you, Superhot, 2064: Read Only Memories, Night Call, Bury me my love, Cook Serve Delicious 2, Towerfall Ascension...

And tons of other good games (not necessarily as famous), and not just games (though it's 60% video games and 30% tabletop RPG games)

Unless you don't like the cause, it's a very good deal

@stux Hey, did you figure out my wallet problem on creapaid? had an issue with data loss, as you might have heard, so I don't know if you got back to me about anything 😅​ My wallet is still empty though

Is somebody here using Fedora or OpenSUSE? How are they, compared to Arch(+EndeavourOS, Manjaro) and Debian derivatives like Ubuntu, Mint and so on? I love the AUR (been using it for years now), but I'd like something more stable that I don't have to tinker with. I'm annoyed by apt and the amount of important packages and programs it is missing but I don't like having to fix something every now and again after an update. Especially on a computer that is used for work.

Review of "Embrace your weird : face your fears and unleash creativity" (3 stars): Am I out of touch? Am I getting old and grumpy? 😱

I feel like us 20-something fediverse users should form an online club. We could talk about stuff like job searching, books to read, comparing life in different parts of the world, aesthetics, projects, etc. Feel free to boost or message me if that interests you.

Is there a FOSS service (app and/or website) to save movies and series but also save the progress in episodes? I can't find anything that does all in one, just parts of it.

Some people like to do push-ups if they have the urge to do things like smoking a cigarette.

Maybe I should be doing that as well, but only if I am procrastinating. I would be looking like Hulk in no time or get more stuff done 🤔

Spontaneous motivational speech:

We are not aware of how little time we have and how we use it. It's about making decisions and not swimming with the flow of others expectations, what we think we should do and decisions in general that we didn't make deliberately. Kurzgesagt made a good video about that just recently:

I feel like they didn't emphasize one point enough, even though they mentioned it:
It's not just trying out new things or old hobbies, it's also about meeting new people. Building connections becomes a bit harder the older you get, but you are never too old to build these meaningful relationships. The internet and hobbies (which they alluded to) are good ways to do that.

You might think:
- "Yeah, but it's not that easy / I'm very introverted / I'm not good with people / I might seem needy" and so on, but are you really?
- "Yeah, but where would I even meet people specifically / I don't have any hobbies / I have no idea how and where to meet people" have you really tried and thought about this question as much as you think?
Maybe some excuses like these are built on the foundation of finding the easy way out of there.

At so many points in my life, I had those same issues and didn't change anything. I was kind of a recluse and I thought that's just how I am.

Sure, it's not going to be easy, it is going to disturb your routine, it's going to feel weird at first, but that's just our body not wanting to change. Change is a risk, takes energy and it might not stick, but it's never useless.

Especially regarding building human connections: There's so much to gain. Our ape ancestor genes still crave relationships. Try to reach out, try to find deeper connections. These are things that generate happiness in our lives and are always worth a try.

I just felt like throwing that out for whatever reason. Fight against always going the easy route and try something 😄
