Found a hummingbird nest today. I see and hear them quite frequently in my area, but this my frist time seeing a nest. It was on a path close to my home that I walk several times a week.

This is really cool, thanks for sharing! Are there a lot of birds in your area?

My day was ok. Just another day of college courses. I'm looking forward to this semester finishing in a few weeks and I finally get a break from it to focus on more personal projects. I'm at the last stretch of it, so I just gotta keep my head down and focus.

Really nice! I had never seen a hummingbird nest either; when i saw the picture i thought "it must be some other bird".

I live near a forest/park area so there's a bunch of birds. Most are common. There is a bald eagle nearby as well.

There are bald eagles all over the place where I live. I must see one or two a week.

I'm finalizing a project on my PC. There is just the slightest bit of rain outside. All the greens of spring are dark and healthy looking. Someone in an apartment accross the street is playing piano calmly. In an open window two dogs look at me.

Sitting at work in the office. Have some downtime so mostly lurking the internet while getting paid for it. When I come home I will do the laundry and then play some video games.

On my walk home the street was pretty quiet. There was a kid with a longboard walking home. A couple people who seemed like they were getting home from work, like me. There was a nice cool breeze and it carried what smelled like a campfire. I later passed a house that seemed to have a small gathering in the back yard, with a charcoal grill going. It was charcoal, not a campfire, that I was smelling. It smelled nice. I heard one really loud bird getting louder and louder as I walked. When I came underneath a tree I looked up and saw a really fat orange and grey bird, singing at the very top of the tree. It's nice to be home.

A special someone's sparked a very wonderful feeling in my heart.

My heart flutters and races while our minds intertwined like luscious passionfruit vines scampering across a silver trellis. Every discussion, every topic and every detail we lob across each other, we poke and prod and palate our minds further. We've been losing sleep by talking late into the nights, delving deeper into our own special irregularities - call them quirks, habits, knacks or something that isn't quite the norm. While we're not always on the same wavelength, our thoughts would never violently clash and we would somehow accept and understand our actions and decisions and our rationale. It's almost as if our minds fondled and caressed each strand of thought, each notion or idea that we pass. Plenty of teasing plenty of playfulness, too. While I'm on the receiving end of most of it, we manage to turn the tables over and over again, returning point after point after point. I really enjoy it.

I've confessed multiple times, but I fear that the feeling is not mutual. Or perhaps, their playfulness, competitiveness and refusal to lose doesn't let them admit it as well? Time will tell. I guess I'll enjoy this warm and sunny sensation for now.

reminds me of a lyric:
Thinking 'bout what my father told me
"Love every second you get
Love every night that you sleep
Love every morning you wake
Because you may not live another day to see"

These words are very true. It's something I struggle with and am trying to get better at. I need to learn to stop worrying about the future and focus on the little enjoyable things in the now.

Hello from an old laptop of mine that I installed Linux on!

I decided I'd give Linux a try a while back and installed xubuntu on an old laptop I had lying around. Forgot about it for a few months and decided just today to mess around with it a bit more. Been learning some of the basics of bash. It's pretty cool.

I started using Linux the same way a couple years ago, and I haven't used anything else since. I like having so much control over the computer, especially with regards to the desktop environment. I'm still not very good with the complicated problems, though, and my old laptops have a lot of problems.

I had another Trader Joe's frozen meal for dinner tonight, which was tasty, but probably not worth what I paid for it. I should learn to cook for myself sometime. After that, I cleaned up my room a little, which I've also been putting off for a while. It's nice being able to see my desk again. Now, I'm lying comfortably in my bed and listening to a new album. Overall, not the most eventful night, but very peaceful.

Very nice! I recently did just the same. Had an old laptop in a drawer, collecting dust. Still had Windows 8.1 installed and due to me always putting it on standby and rarely ever shutting it down and cramping up the hard drive with garbage it slowed to a crawl to a point to being barely operable. Then I got my smartphone and realised I use that way more frequently than the old laptop and thus neglected my old pal even more.
But a few months ago a coworker told me he is using Linux only at home and I was, at the time, learning bash for my job so I decided to dig up the computer and try Ubuntu.
Really fun to mess around with and see what's beyond Windows (or Apple's OS for some).

Pleasant, spent most of the day writing, constantly deleting what I write, then working on my huge world map instead of my story, and then blankly looking at tips for writing fantasy novels, well-knowing that the best way to write any novel, is within' my imagination.

I agree, I think it's awesome.

That's pretty cool! I still have another old laptop I need to find something to do with, and yet another laptop that used to be my main PC that's just sitting there collecting dust.

Update: I have now installed Ubuntu on my other old laptop because my other one was like 10 years old and was struggling.

It's a little stuttery (due to this laptops age and it not being the greatest machine to begin with), but overall it's not bad.

I'm also still working on my knowledge of bash, seems like a cool little language. It's been a while since I programmed, so it's a good way to get back into it.

What I did to my literally first gen thinkpad was swap out the battery, hard drive and ram, disassembled it entirely, replaced the thermal paste, and ran tronscript. Runs good as new.

1st gen meaning first gen core i cps?
I'm a thinkpad guy too, still can't bring myself to sell my first one, x200s. It just lies on a shelf there.
Also, old thinkpads feel so much better than new ones...

Yeah, they feel really rugged, kinda like if an ak-47 was a laptop. No bells and whistles, just yknow, straight up utilitarianism.

Yeah, I guess that is always an option. Just figured it would be easier to install it on a slightly newer computer.

I'll always have Xubuntu on my other one though if I ever want to use it for some reason.

I fixed an old zippo lighter. The previous owner don't know how mechanical things work, so they bought a lighter and used it until all liquid was gone and the wick burnt out, apparently. 5 minutes of work and it's alive.
Feels great to fix things.

I found a new tea mix at the store. Ginger, peppermint, lemograss and lemon skins. It warms up and brings up longing for winter.

How can you like winter? I hate it with a passion, and I think I might actually have a minor form of seasonal depression or something. I've been feeling so much better since summer began.

I'm not that anon, but it feels great to sit indoors during the winter with a significant other and stare out the window whilst drinking spiced tea.
I suppose it's a matter of taste.

I have strong mixed feelings about winter.
What depresses me about it is how you have to keep going with your daily routine but it's often more difficult due to the weather, work seems more stressful, you go to work when it's still dark and you come how when it's also dark. Barely seeing any sunlight.
At the same time, I like the off days, when you can go for a walk, take it easy, warm up next to the heater with a warm drink. When lucky it might even freeze a bit and the whole town comes out to go skating.

Yeah, there are aspects of winter I enjoy (particularly around the holidays) but after that it slowly just gets more and more depressing for me.

I feel terrible during summer. Insane heat boils by brain, I can't think properly, I can't read, I'm covered in that stage of sweat when it becomes sticky and disgusting. We have TWO air conditioners in the coffee shop, TWO of them, and they barely keep 22 degrees celsuis together. No, they are not broken. And I have not yet lived in a domicicle which has an ac.
At least I can wrap myself in sweaters and coats (which, I'm sorry, are COMFY) and balance cold during winter.
There's nothing you can do in summer.

Yeah, I see what you're saying. Sweat doesn't bother me that much, and I'd rather be hot than cold. Although I do love snuggling up in a big fluffy blanket in the winter.

Difference in personalities I guess.

My friend, seersucker everything, Hawaiian shirts, gym shorts. Better than wearing nothing at all, since they block light AND radiate the heat away.

Having some very fine Sushi at a restaurant right now, everything looks high quality. I hope this place is good, had too many bad/mediocre places in my area.

On my way back. It was very delicious, so far the best place I'd say.
Trivial anecdote;
While sitting at the window, I peered outside while waiting for the food. Outside there were traffic lights and whenever it turned red, I could perfectly see the cars and their drivers waiting there. One time a fairly young couple waited there and the guy looked straight into the restaurant i.e. at me. I was bored anyway and for thr lulz waved at him because he was almost staring. He smiled and waved back then the lights turned green and they drove off.
Fast forward 10 minutes and guess who also enteres the sushi restaurant? Yep. They went past our table, he turned around and waved again. I was somehow embarrassed but at the same time very amused. He was friendly and took it as the joke it was supposed to be.

Sounds like a cozy experience.

Out of pure boredom and need for a break from the internet I decided to paint today. I've always been terrible at it and that stopped me from doing it, but today I didn't care. I think it was very good for me, and helped me take my mind off things. Even if it was a bit frustrating lol. I produced one painting I'm happy-ish with, and the other two I crumpled up half-way through.

I think I need some more hobbies that don't involve my computer.

I asked if we could date and they said no. I'm kinda bummed about it but it's waned over and I'm okay with it. I've tried this crazy date and raisin wine and it was fantastic. I've been laughing so hard with a friend telling stories and silly things that my chest hurts.

I feel alive again. Sharing laughter and joy is wonderful.

>>91
How warm and lovely!

I hope you all have had wonderful evenings with many more to come. If you're ever feeling down, not comfy, sad or just plain uncomfortable, ask someone to share to share some laughter and silliness with you. Sometimes a good jolt of dumb, slapstick hilarity can lift what seems like a planet on your shoulders.

Anon, the fact that you did it is a good thing.
If you can make it a habit to paint, maybe every week or every day if you are courageous, I'm sure you will get more and more out of it.
I find drawing to be very frustrating at times but a worthwhile challenge, I've challenged myself to draw every day some 2.5 years ago and I'm still going with lots of ups and downs but what it comes down to is that it takes my mind off of the computer (which is my job) and even gave me a few opportunities to socialize by going to figure drawing sessions.

Anyway, I hope you keep painting. Getting started is always the hardest, at least it was for me but it's really worth it and getting an honest compliment from another person is a wonderful feeling.

Thank you, anon. I don't know if I'll be able to do it every day, but I'm definitely going to make an effort to do it more often. Even if I never get good at it, it's still fun and even a bit therapeutic.

No need to push yourself. For me it helped to set a relatively simple daily task, it made it easier to keep going and all I do is draw anyway so I can just pick up a sketchbook whenever I need.
I hope you can keep it up.
