I will be satisfied with my life.

a kingdom of isolation and it looks like i'm the queen

things I like:

  1. that when I sit down on the ground, its like a silent call goes out to all the doggies in the house and they all run over to greet me and say hello
  2. that Randy and I will be going on a date to Universal together this upcoming weekend.

Things I dont like:

  1. being sick right now
  2. not getting any work done

the “you live with your parents” insult is really flaccid because a metric shitton of cultures don’t see “leave the house forever” as some grandiose moment of liberation that’s so important to the development of a person that it has to happen as fast as possible. until i came to the USA i didn’t know a single person who was pressured by their parents to leave the house because they’re “too old to stay there” or whatever. in puerto rico it is really common to stay with your parents until they and you are both stable enough that you can leave. whaddaya know, there are cultures that don’t place a stigma on being poor or wanting to care for your family or needing your family to care for you for some other reason.
