^ You should give it a tiny morsel of raw meat like 1g or less and it can digest that.

^ oh gosh, I haven't owned raw meat for a very long time. I guess I could ask for a cube of meat from the butcher for my carnivorous plant heheh

Will cat food suffice?

Burst into the butchers and say you need the smallest sausage they have. Tell them it's an emergency.

Maybe going to study in uni again but I have to seriously think about it and commit to it this time.

The first thought I had today though is though career of professional success seems good I definitely don’t want to gain unhealthy habits as having a poor or messy sleep schedule seems to go with people who say they are studying hard or doing professional, highly skilled jobs. Even in the industry I work in it’s quite easy to fall into the habit of a poor sleep schedule.

The last few weeks I have had a good sleep schedule, sleeping and waking up at the same time everyday, including days off, apart from if I did a rotating shift. I’ve noticed that I have never really felt tired with the sleep schedule, only in the days I did a rotating shift.

I don’t want to sacrifice my sleep if I was to go uni. I think that this is possible but just requires being organised with work, it wouldn’t put me in the cool books for sure. I’m also thinking I can’t just accept any job that would require me to mess up my sleep schedule too much.

Something may have to give though if I went uni. This isn’t just about balancing uni work and work, it’s also about balancing my sleep and well-being. I think in a way uni would have to become my life as maybe an unhealthy sleep schedule is associated with working skilled jobs and studying because it’s easy and desirable to try and do more than we can do without pushing ourselves too much.

I think they should reintroduce the one way system in supermarkets that was used during the early days of Covid.
It made shopping much easier for me not having other trolleys being shoved from all directions and people dithering around in the way.

It’s so hard to speak about insecurities because in reality insecurities can come across as rude as no one wants to admit an insecurity so they may come across as rude or passive aggressive instead. And in this modern society they would be judged harshly for the perceived passive aggressiveness or perceived rudeness.

Decided to go cinema and have a few days off work. Only me and a woman were in the cinema room where a watched the film. It’s weird how when you aren’t going to work you don’t really think of others going to work, if that makes sense.

I just went to a meetup. A mens group one, one of the guys said how I wasn't there or he felt I wasn't paying the group full attention.

Tbh I felt the topics weren't something I connected too or were a bit too deep for my first time meeting them. They were speaking of getting drunk and times they felt disgusted.

But makes me feel like I am on a different wavelength. I know lots of men are into alcohol, getting drunk and stuff. I'm not into that.

I've been to this group before, but the last time I went I think the first one ranged more in age and temperament. Whilst I can't say that I connected in the group I felt I was able to contribute more in the group.

^ Was it a group for certain types of people or around a certain issue, or just a general men's group?
It was brave of you to go to something like that!

^It's meant to be for men. This one is men aged 20-35. Apparently we are meant to let our guard down and just be open.

Maybe the thing about being neurodiverse is that it's easy to see through when people say they are or want come across as open minded, willing to speak about anything. Stereotypically I see this as a big issue with my generation, we like to say we are more open minded about mental health and stuff but when we/they don't understand a behaviour, from my experience, they don't usually ask why the person is acting that way but label them a negative term or act passive aggressively.

The chat was mainly about being hammered but were the group willing to hear from a point of view that was of someone who hasn't really gotten hammered? Maybe it was a problem that the group was of only 4 people and everyone else saw getting hammered as normal. Also because I spoke about work a lot, didn't feel like I could open up, the guy who called me out assumed that I just came from work. I think I feel a bit angry about this.

The last meet I went to before this one though was a bit better. I think the topic was more relatable, it was mainly about relationships.

Thinking about it I think the issue, on a bigger scale, is that people want to be right. So when people see others that have different perspectives from them sometimes they feel the need to tell that person that they are somewhat wrong. It's like to fit in with the wider society, the easiest way to do it is to conform to them.

The last two times I've been to fill up on petrol it's cost £5 more. £5 more than the time before, in a matter of like 3 weeks. Time to invest in a penny farthing I think.

Our upstairs neighbour is doing stuff with his van on the shared driveway, so we are stuck inside *sigh*. Maybe he feels self conscious about people going past when he's there, who knows!

I have the same issue now and then with a neighbour whose door opens up into the area my bike is locked up. I've lost track of the number of times I'm ready to go out and....right at that moment it seems as I'm locking up I can see them coming out to congregate. It's definitely a "ffs, you're kidding me, could you not wait 10 minutes?" moment. Summer is the worst for it, as everyone seems to want to move their lives into the shared courtyard areas, etc.

^ It's a difficult one isn't it. It's not too bad if it's just a few minutes, but if it's longer it can start to get very inconvenient.

Oh and he's packed up and gone inside now lol.

I have a concept of cool, normal etc. This will always exist due to I how society is but I’m thinking to function at my best I need to let go of labels. I have strengths and weaknesses like anyone else but feel my strengths and weaknesses don’t fit so tightly into a category. It’s like certain things about me feel contradicting, but that’s probably more normal than I think.

I feel my recent haircut, which was a number one Caesar, check the mature hairline/ male balding thread, influenced this thought. I feel like I have wanted to grow my hair out but this haircut that almost makes me look bald brings out my face I feel and feels more effortless. It’s like I’ve stopped trying to be a certain way in a particular thing so there is less pressure and anxiety about that thing. I think this applies to other aspects of myself, to go with my nature although parts may feel contradictory.

It’s even like music. The most amazing music can sound both interesting but also familiar. Social media detoxes as well, with less pressure, being sm free feels more peaceful.

Idk if this makes lots of sense.

^^Imagine if you lived in one of those countries where everyone congregates outside all the time, at least in summer.
