I'm clairvoyant and idgaf what any skeptic has to say about it.
So yesterday my gf was having a poor mental health day and just feeling totally butts. They decided to go for a drive in the evening to clear their head, get out of the house a bit, try to lift their mood.
and idk why, there was no reason for it, but I had the thought "this isn't going to end well" but shook it off as just unwarranted pessimism and existential dread
No, turns out they blew out a tire on a pothole and had to wait for friends to come rescue them and now they gotta buy a new tire and deal with all the drama that comes with unpleasant adventures like that
I didn't know it was going to happen
but i totally knew something was going to happen.
#I get these feelings a lot and they are often right #'i fucking called it' is something my roommate hears regularly #he is very tolerant of listening to predictions about things he doesnt give a shit about #just so i can have the triumph of later saying #'hey remember when i said blahblahblah? yeah i was right. totally called it.' #(and to be clear i consider myself a skeptic. i dont believe in this kinda thing until the evidence smacks me in the face) #(but i have been on this earth 35 years now and this has happened too many times to ignore)4 notes

So just an FYI, if you ever see a picture I post and have a yen to use it for an edit or background or moodboard or anything, I am cool with that.
I know what a pain it is trying to hunt down a free stock photo that captures that exact vibe you want. Then you finally find it and the size or quality is kinda meh.
I'd love to be tagged so I can see any pretties you create!
And I usually still have the original image which is prolly gonna be like 2600 x 1800 or something else ridiculously large because I refuse to use other size setting except maximum on both my Nikon and my phone camera. So if you need the high-rez version, I got ya.
#art resources #free stock photos #kinda #idk #sometimes i want to start shooting my own free stockphoto collection to share with people #but like i have the money for the kind of setup that will let me host hundreds of giant image files that are meticulously tagged #and have an intuitive search filtering system? #pipe dreams2 notes
Me: I'm bored and lonely
Brain: make an okcupid profile
Past me: THIS NEVER WORKS OUT
Present me: maybe....
Gods help me I actually went and did it
Best of luck! I dated a few people from OKC way back when and enjoyed the experience, even if the relationships didnt last all that long. I've known people who have made good friends that way and know a married couple who met through OKC.
I made another profile a few months ago but abandoned it after a couple weeks because I got very overwhelmed while looking through peoples' profiles. also because i get very bored having the same old small talk with 20 different people when maybe 1-2 of them turn out to be interesting.
