Still haven’t found a cure for my crushing loneliness
I told the guy I sometimes see that I’m in dire need of cuddles and he replied, “Sounds like you need a puppy.” Thanks, asshole.
But yeah, I’m going to get a puppy. I just need to make some more money first and settle in my new apt a little better. I can’t wait til I have a default cuddle bud.
PHOTOGRAPHER TOURS SHELTERS TO HELP DOGS GET ADOPTED - “Our mission is to provide shelter staff and volunteers with the resources to successfully groom and photograph shelter pets, helping give them the second chance they deserve.”
The One Picture Saves a Life initiative teaches animal shelters how to groom and photograph the shelter animals to present them in the best light (probably both literally and figuratively) for adoption. Photographer Seth Casteel is currently touring various shelters in the U.S. to put on workshops. You may be familiar with Casteel’s Underwater Dogs series. The photos above are examples of how different the dogs look depending on how they are presented.
In addition to Casteel, John Paul Pet, The Animal Rescue Site, GreaterGood.org, and the Petfinder Foundation are all partners in this endeavor. Click here to learn more about One Picture Saves a Life. You can also donate to this cause by clicking here. (Photos from One Picture Saves a Life)

Wahhhhh packing is hard
I’m packing up my life from my mother’s house to move into my new house! yey! But ugh it is the worst. Also I can’t find a lot of stuff, like my dishes. It is somewhere in the abyss that is the basement, maybe? What a headache. This will definitely make me think twice about moving constantly. I think I may try to stay at this place for a few years, which is scary to me because of my huge fear of commitment. Also, it gives me the sads to realize I’m not moving to Seattle or Portland any time soon. I will try to make the best of it!
Maybe Unbearable Loneliness should be a mental illness
I technically have major depressive disorder, but really, I feel like I’m just painfully lonely. I have friends but… feel so so alone and uncared for. They say that this causes people to die early. I can see why.
I got a job
And now I’m terrified that I’ll start and they’ll think they’ve made a terrible mistake and I’m going to suck at it and I’ll make a huge ass of myself.
I believe the term for this feeling is “imposter syndrome”
Weird effects of losing lots of weight:
All my veins are really close to the surface of my skin. I wonder how long it will take for them to sink down again?
(45 lbs lost)
I got a good chuckle out of this.
