    seriously though, does everyone agree that there's nothing quite like being fucking dirt poor, living in a shitty rental house on free lunch wearing handmedowns, eating fucking mac and cheese or pancakes every night of the week, buying even those meager dietary supplements with foodstamps...


    that makes a kid resilient.


    or dead. resilient or dead, those are the two settings.

    or a juvenile crime statistic.

    What?

    Do you...do you cook your rice and pasta in Milk?

    A lot of this instant pasta stuff calls for milk.

    Now I have a decent job, make a good living, and have the ability to eat whatever the fuck I want, whenever the fuck I want.

    except, you know, not now.... because they took all my teeth out.

    But I could.


    If I had the teeth.

    Now I love a good gummer, but this is going a little extreme.

    so what is happening this time?

    Does meditating really work better than sleeping Futore? I've been hella tired lately, sleeping for 12 hours a day some times, can't think it's healthy at all.

    And Stale, that wheat thing sounds crazy but really goddamn useful. Need to get this info where I can though, poor studentdom hoorah.

    look online for Vegan substitutes for milk. Sometimes they're inconvenient or a little more expensive, but as I said earlier, you can pretty much promise they'll be happy and quite often cheaper

    and I don't just mean soy milk or almond milk kinda stuff. like actual recipe substitutes

    Wouldn't a big bag of normal pasta and some tins of tomatoes be cheaper? Pasta is pretty instant anyway.

    It doesn't necessarily work better than sleeping, but it's something that can be healthy. It can build mind and body health together. It's a nice, constructive way to pass the time.

    Sleeping too much can just make you more tired sometimes and if you don't take in the right nutrients while you're awake, you can get pretty sick. That happened to me for a little while last fall.

    Also, sometimes you just can't sleep anymore. I've had entire days where when I wake up, I stay in bed until I fall asleep again. But that can be horrible and boring and sometimes just make you more depressed.

    I made slop in a bowl just before, one egg, beaten up and fried in a pancake form then thinly sliced, one stick of celery, one mushroom, one slice of ham which I diced, two and a half spoons of rice left over from last night and a half size can of corn.

    Then I put lots of pepper on it and it tasted fantastic, but now my farts smell.

    I've been getting like that lately, sleeping way too much. Only problem is if I'm not sleeping and I'm not out somewhere then I'm on the computer. Hah well might have to try and force myself to try it.

    It's a good way to keep your body in shape. It'd be even healthier with some yoga, though you should do the simple yoga if you do it to avoid burning too many calories.

    Basically a lot of stretching to keep your muscles flexible and efficient and in shape

    I still have my front teeth, they just took out my back ones.

    Bone abcess in my jaw, been a problem for a while, finally just got too bad and they cut them all out. Can't get replacements for at least a year til the bone heals.

    in the meantime the front teeth all need work due to being in close proximity to the abcess.



    or in other words, My jaw tried it's best to kill me with a +5 Necrotic Blast, but I made my saving throw and only took half-damage.

    Might be worth giving a go, my mum's always said I ought to give yoga a go.

    damn big guy, sorry to hear it. I'm rooting for ya, though I know you'll pull through and have that beautiful stoic jaw that I want to snuggle against

    If you could learn it from borrowing tapes or whatever from your mom, I'd say go for it. I've been meaning to take up actual yoga

    one last tip off the top of my head is in regards to the biggest mistake people make when going cheap.

    Do not buy the cheapest things just because they are the cheapest. I know that every cent can count and sometimes you can't spare even a few extra dimes, but it can be worth it.

    If at alllll possible, go for stuff that is better for you. People just grab the cheapest thing, but that often leads to more buying in the future. This is due to a lack of good nutrients from cheaply produced foods with a lot of preservatives or chemicals. If your body doesn't get the right nutrition, it will tell you that it is still hungry and you'll end up buying more.

    Often, the cravings your body gets for specific tastes or foods results from your body lacking a certain nutrient that it knows is in that food (from you eating it at a previous point). So, make a trip to the grocery store efficient and get what you need. Take the time to look through the ingredients in things. You'll be healthier and you'll have a few extra bucks in the long run.
