@Urwelt If it's not a being an adult thing, I have it too. If I accomplish anything that's not laying around watching Netflix after work it's a miracle day.
@ellochka FOT and texting my east cost friends are the only things I don't like about living on this side of the country. (Also NFL starting at 5:30? Outrage)
@coolallison I do this on like a weekly basis. I'll see a cute baby or hear about my nieces doing something cute and I'm like "Yeah, babies, that's a thing for me," but then I go to a restaruant and there's a crying baby or I decide to just eat frozen yogurt for dinner or I want to sleep until noon on a Sunday it cures me.
@katiemcgillicuddy yay! I'm too lazy, I mean, busy, yeah busy, for fantasy football so this is perfect.
Podcasts! I am recently in love with them to feel more personally productive at work and also for fun I suppose. What should I add to my list?

@blueberry mary Not at all like this terrible person, but my worst date:
Right after I took the bar exam and was living with my parents looking for a job I went to dinner with this guy from OKC (of course). We had a boring, awkward dinner but I thought maybe its just because first dates or whatever so I agreed to go out again, for dinner and a movie. First red flag, he didn't ask my opinion on the movie at all, and just picks Jack the Giant Slayer (second red flag?). At dinner I order a drink, and he makes a face and says "I just don't really drink..." Then I tell him that I found a job, which I just had found out the day before, and would be moving in a month. Instead of congratulating me, possibly with a "too bad for me," he spent the rest of dinner telling me that there's no point in going on a date if it can't lead to marriage and he has has such a bad week and now this has just topped his bad time. Then we leave and he says "I'm just going to skip the movie." He texted me a couple days later to "apologize" by saying "sorry, after you told me I just didn't even want to sit there with you anymore."
@phipsi I have been going to acupuncture for my teeth grinding/jaw clenching and I think it's really making some improvements. I still get pain and headaches but less often. Also I take great naps and have the weirdest dreams during acupuncture so that's neat.
@mmmcheese Can we all agree that we wan potential lady (or whatever gender) friends to talk to us and we'll talk to potential friends? And then we won't be weird about bridging the casual conversation to friendship gap?

@nowwhat Not nearly as complex (my stuff was in 3 places but in the same state), but I moved mostly across the country a few months ago to an apartment I had never seen in a city I'd never been to, and drove for 3 days with my parents and not only did no one get murdered, my apartment turned out to be fine and my neighbor helpped carry up the couch which was impossibly heavy and it's mostly going alright. Good luck!
