  2. Not only was there a pool, but earlier in the day we took them to one of those family fun centers for a few hours, a geek store which was mainly for me but they still got a few toys themselves, and got to eat junk for the whole day. For them, it was pretty much the best day ever. But the topper, of course, was that the surgery went well. My mom went back home before he ever woke up so no ones talked to him yet, but the doctors said it went as smoothly as it could. I just feel relief that at least this part of it is over. However it went, I just needed it to end, honestly. now I’

  7. Nightly stopped being a popculture discussion board years ago, it's down to just a handful of people who like talking to each other about movies and stuff. Trolls have all outed and flamed themselves out. None of us are interested in being an angst-filled anonymous place to yell at each other. So you come back 15 years later, still acting like a teenage edgelord, and you're mad that we're now just a small group of friends who are are adults talking about adult things, and it's our fault and we suck? Have you really run out of places to troll and you'd hoped we'd take your bait? If y

  8. My day at work was really light, so I decided for some reason to hit the high points of my relationship past: I went on my first date as a junior in high school, and it didn't exactly go well. It was my junior prom, and I went with a girl who was a senior, and she spent the entire prom in the bathroom with her friend who was crying over a boy she liked being with another girl. None of my friends went, but I danced with a girl I knew who's date also abandoned her. Didn't date again until my senior year, when I started dating a girl, we went on a few dates, then we went to prom together. I

  9. Tomorrow starts medical leave. I get 3 weeks off. I'm going to get sliced open and have a bunch of bones removed, but unlike when I was in such horrible pain back last December, I can sleep the whole damn day if I need to for three whole weeks. Also, they're going to slice me open and remove a bunch of bones in a week, and I am so glad it's almost here and not seven weeks out like when I scheduled the surgery.

  10. So many things right now actually! It's helping me hold space for all my friends who are dealing with some shit right now. I started my new job last week! This week my boss is at Disney, so I'm on my own to do my training and start organizing this business. It's going well. I love working from home and on my own schedule. I just make myself available during the day for meetings and to answer emails/texts, but nobody is actually staring over my shoulder making sure that I'm always on task or micromanaging me in any way. This is new for me, and I love it. The boys are out of town t

  14. Not trying to take over this thread--it's supposed to be about COVID not my parents--but they called to tell us to come out anyway. My mom is only allowed to visit my dad once a week now anyway, so they agreed it was worth it to take a week off so she can see the kids. So I guess the trip is back on. All the kind words are greatly appreciated though. This month has sucked a lot.

  17. Why can't I reply in this stupid thread?? So I got the job. This thread REFUSES to accept my typed out reply. So I'll bullet point. Still waiting for the official offer, but it's been confirmed. It's going to be 95% work-from-home and I get to pick my schedule She liked me initially because of scouting. She needs help with scouting. She also really likes my planner pictures on Insta. My real estate experience was just like a bonus.

  18. I'm not sure if it's fully possible for men to truly and fully understand what it's like for women to be pretty consistently valued mainly for our ability to provide sex. But we are, pretty much from the moment our boobs begin to develop (if not birth). It affects literally every aspect of our lives. The world, and most of the people in it, regard women as little more than sexual objects. The amount of trust and bravery required to give physical intimacy (not sexual intimacy) to a man is enormous. Being able to trust that the man you're touching isn't going to "make a move" is so relievi

  20. So KP came over early afternoon yesterday, stayed about 24 hours, then left. It continues to be very intense. We did a lot of talking and acknowledging that there is definitely some deep connection and things are progressing fast between us. She told me that she has been talking me up to her more casual regular hook ups, a work mate, and even her mother. She's also admitted that the usual walls, rules, and protective boundaries she has for herself are things that don't seem to apply to me. She also admitted that even telling me that is very much against her usual operating procedure.

  21. Yeah I want to run away but Katie talked me out of it. We got a hotel for the night—we were planning on staying til Monday anyway. They just moved the surgery up, too, which is good. Sooner it starts the sooner it’s over.

  23. We don’t want, or need, a villain. People who try to fill that role pretty quickly find themselves removed from Nightly. We’d love to have you here, but if you really want to play a villain, there are better places to do it.

  24. Here's an example of why I like KP. I just texted her: "Hey-- I know we just hung out on Sunday, and we're on for tomorrow... but assuming you're not luring me to the woods to kill me, do you want to hang out this weekend too? Kid is with his mom. I'm not trying to take up your time, but also, I totally want to take up all your time." Now, using the power of my imagination, psychology skills, and writing knowlejeses, I can show you how women from my past would have responded to this. Metal would have texted me back: "Ask me Friday." Gray would have said: "I want to, but are

  32. I either think I’m awesome or hate myself. Seems pretty consistent with what other people have said. I find that I am at my best when I’m doing the most self care, which for me means spending time alone doing things I enjoy, or having good interactions with a very limited number of people. I just did a weekend retreat by myself in a tiny cabin in the woods. No one to judge, no one to require my time or attention, no opportunities to fail. It was great for me. Work is hit and miss. I both feel like an imposter and like I’m way over qualified for what I’m doing. And both are probably t

  33. My self esteem goes up and down like one of them roller coaster rides. Some days I feel invincible and other days I feel worthless. Even people with high self esteem have moments, many of them, in which they question their worth or value. I can't pretend to have a good answer or know what works, and it's probably different approaches for different types of people. Maybe your brain is wired that way or there are past experiences that lead to the low self esteem. Or both. I try to use my low self esteem to my advantage. I see a cute girl and think hey this girl won't be in

  34. My new guitar came in. It was 3/4 size (kid size) instead of full size. Drove to the other side of town to return it to a physical store to avoid shipping. Ended up spending $100 more to get a much nicer guitar, and the guy threw in a hard case ($100+) a strap ($20) and some miscellaneous odds and ends.

  37. I remember when Nightly, Lando specifically, was edgy and aggro. I was a major contributor to that vibe. Then a few things happened. First, the entire internet turned into one giant hot take. Snarky reviews and clap backs became the norm everywhere to the point that decades later we have Twitter which exists solely to deliver hot takes to wind people up. Second, I grew up and found out that being informed and kind made ME feel better than shouting down some nerd who likes TPM.

  38. It's shocking when you have the realisation that people may not be the people you believed them to be all along. I'm glad you have made repairs to your relationship with your father, but sorry you are going through this loss with your mother. It's shit, no two ways about it. But you've made the right call. Your family is your wife and kids and from what you have said here you have done right by them. Stay strong man, but talk whenever you need.

  40. She made it, so I can breathe again. Apparently one girl from their team did get cut. I'm hoping it's the anti-masker dad's kid because she didn't even come to tryouts, but we haven't seen her since December anyway, so my daughter forgot she was even on the team. But worried it's the girl who showed up 30 minutes late yesterday and didn't even come today. Mom doesn't have her shit together but the kid really wants to play, and she's a good player. She did really well today, paid attention and played well. Even played a little out of position and did well there, too. She earned it.

  46. I know I'm reasonably smart and can do a handful of things. I think I'm better looking/stronger/more capable/more creative than I realize. I'm definitely more confident and have more self esteem in my late 30s than I have at any other period in my life--good lord I'm embarrassed of my teens/20s self, and definitely owe a lot of people a lot of apologies for the stupid shit I did as a result of low self esteem. That being said, at the same time, I don't think I'm particularly smart or good at anything. Maybe yelling. I'm a lot louder than I realize I am.

  47. I have stupidly high (and, frankly, likely unwarranted) self-esteem but, ironically, crazy-low self-confidence. I, honestly, don't even know how that works. Actually, a lot of it is imposter syndrome and a crippling fear of failure. And actually maybe more arrogance than self-esteem. So like, I don't have the self-confidence to actually put myself out there for ANYTHING even if I logically know I could do it. AND if something forces me to acknowledge my shortcomings, I get really angry and upset because it goes against everything I feel about myself. If that makes any sense? As long
