I strongly suspect that this is the worst time of year to ask people to consider donating towards anything, but sometimes that’s just how things work out. This is just in case anyone is willing and able to donate - I don’t usually ask but this one feels personal.
How is your Monday? We have a bank holiday in the UK so I’m off work today. I was lazier than I planned over the weekend so this morning I did both some tidying and some studying. My Japanese progress is going ok, I completed all of last week’s material and I already got 75% of this week’s vocabulary correct (Mondays …
I don’t want to bother the writers I know about this because I don’t want them to feel obliged, they probably get asked writing questions a lot. So I’m asking here where people can choose whether they’d like to respond or not.
Otherwise known as an excuse for me to scream about Seungri’s solo album dropping today :) I’ve been waiting since 2013 so please excuse me. I absolutely love it, every single song, he never disappoints me. The single is catchy and poppy and fun, I can’t stop it playing my head. Obligatory plug:
I need to vent this out, so please go ahead and use this post to do the same for things you need to vent about. I am probably going to try and sleep. Also this is very stream of consciousness and you don’t have to read it, or comment. I just need to write it.
This says it’s from 3rd April so I must have missed it before. This one really resonated with me, and I wanted to put it here as a reminder to everyone that actually, you are worthy and you do deserve respect. No one should have to feel like they don’t deserve better than this. Just because the person you choose to…
In happy news, today is Molko’s 21st birthday! She can legally drink in the US now but she would rather lounge on every available surface and tell me off for existing near her. She’ll get a treat of fish tonight!
TW: mention (no description) of sexual assault, response to trauma.
If you don’t know what Boxing Day is, well neither do I really but I get a day off for it and that’s what counts. Plus it means eating leftovers with mashed potato and pickles, it’s probably my favourite meal of the year.
We are interviewing for a senior position within one of our operational teams. A woman was interviewed for the role and afterwards the team who would be working with her were discussing what they thought. They were very pleased with her except, when someone else asked them if they had any concerns, their concern is…
I just need somewhere to put this. I know this is a weird place for it perhaps but I really dont know where else to do it. Tw suicide/death.
Well. Perhaps I shouldn’t say ‘of the week’, because I think it’s quite obvious I just don’t have the energy to keep these going at the moment, I’m kinda burnt out. But I’m keeping the title so that these posts can be found, when I do have the energy to make them.
What’s on the vagenda this fine Sunday?
I’m at the airport. I will be in New York for a week before heading to Chicago. I don’t know what to do in New York though? My close friend lives there so I’ve visited many times and am running out of ‘obvious’ things. Does anyone familiar with New York have any ideas for things I might have missed?
I’m not expecting GT to solve this for me, I’m just wondering if anyone had any experience with this or advice/thoughts as I can’t seem to find what I’m looking for by googling.
I hope I’m not stepping on any toes but I need a good things post today. No matter how small, please share. Let me experience happiness through you :)
Tw probable attempted suicide
This week’s theme is ‘covers’! If there’s a cover of a song you enjoy, please share it here. Note that the cover does not have to be as good as the original! You just have to like it. It could be in the same style as the original or a completely new take on it. Please try to check each other’s songs and chat about…
This week’s theme is ‘strong female vocals’! Not every great singer is a Beyonce but this week is a celebration of songs by or featuring female groups/artists that have impactful vocals. Please try to check each other’s songs and chat about whether you’re into them :)

This is a new user-contribution led series I thought might be nice for those of us who love sharing music. The idea is to pick a theme and share songs we enjoy on this theme. Please check songs others posted and talk to them about them as well as sharing your own, I’m hoping people will get conversations going :) I…
