food 

i've been trying to figure out for a long time why i couldn't pull off restaurant quality basmati rice. figured it was my technique

never occurred to me i was just buying crap rice. the roomie bought some this time and it was effortlessly amazing. i've been talking about how good the rice was for 24 hours

We trust you have received the usual lecture from the local System
Administrator. It usually boils down to these three things:

#1) Don't fight a cat.
#2) Use your brain.
#3) Use drugs.

my dog has moments where for just a few seconds, she is heartbreakingly cute. like so cute i want to fucking cry about how cute she is. and i wish i could share that with people

maybe it's just the depression and isolation talking, but as far as i can tell

1) social media brings out the worst in everyone
2) every single person is bad. Not in a "lol so nothing actually matters ¯\_(ツ)_/¯" way, more of a "holy shit every one of you is so exhausting"

if you spend your downtime "recovering" from the stress of your job, you are actually spending 100% of your time on work
