I'm not buying Shakespeare's "better to feel sad than nothing" quips about romance. I was definitely mentally healthier when I had my guard up and lacked hope.

Remember when everyone thought that in the future it wouldn't matter if someone posted dumb shit on Facebook as a kid because everyone else would be in the same boat?

Welcome to cancel culture, kids

I want to get out of my car but my shuffled phone music keeps churning out bangers

I should really stop sadposting, but it's sort of a natural consequence of being sad and posting

The neat thing about growing up with internet is that it's entirely possible to have nothing in common with anyone in your local community

I want to meet people locally. I do not want to meet people locally badly enough to:

• attend a book club aimed at older women
• join an Agile fanclub
• go to an "entrepreneur" "networking" event

This has been an essay on living in a relatively small city.

Hmm, I could have sworn I put my *impenetrable wall of apathy that I use to cope with the fact I will almost certainly die having never experienced any trace of intimacy or companionship* down somewhere around here.
