Blessings on the winter solstice! The tide is turning, light is returning!

For those who celebrate it: Merry up-coming Christmas! And for the rest, see you for the new year.

bright Solstice!!

I'm wearing my ugly xmas sweater and I'm ready for a week of too much food

Today at the winter solstice we had a sunrise at 9.28AM and the sun will set again at 1.46PM.. Please hurry up and give me more sun.

This week's been hard. I still have to go to work today and tomorrow before I get 4 days off for Xmas.
Have decided to check into a hotel in town w mom (separate rooms) so we'll get a luxury Christmas w/o all the stress of cleaning and cooking etc.

I guess I can only hope 2019 will be a better year...

I don't usually write in FFA and half the time I'm here it's to complain about my life I feel like. But there's something that's been bothering me so maybe other ppl can bring some sense into this.

[idk how to express myself briefly (is this tw: depression?]
How do people in their mid-20s make friends again? This year has been a struggle for me emotionally and has made me realize things about myself I don't think I was aware of before, like how I'm not good with change and I'm having a hard time not bottling up everything emotionally. I think the anxiety(?) has really taken its toll and is hindering me from doing the things I used to be able to do. Now I find myself at a point in life where there's not many other people in my life, for various reason. Actually last weekend my one friend invited me out to see our friend's DJ gig (it really comes down to her bringing me with her for me to go out at all it seems like) and it ended up being a huge get-together of ex-school mates and such. But after hanging out there I felt awkward in a way I didn't used to feel, and I felt like it didn't really matter if I was there or not, and it was sort of discouraging to feel?

I'm also not generally a very cheerful or loud personality and I think I get overlooked a lot because of that :( It's easier online to seem more approachable bc the lack of face to face contact when you don't have ppl questioning your RBF.

Somehow I've managed to sail through life with somehow making friends and having them keep contact but now that I'm in the age where upkeeping those social contacts is harder than it was before I'm stumped. I always like being alone but I feel like it's not healthy for my personality to be too much alone. I know it's a mindset and it's about putting yourself out there but it's a struggle when it's easier to just bundle up at home.

Was I much better at this when I was younger, or was it just simply easier back then? Or have I just changed that much? Is it normal to just lose interest in/second-guess things that used to bring you joy and to feel dissociated from people around you?
Also for this it feels like kpop is just a quick-fix happy pill that easily accessible but does nothing constructive in the long run.

Does anyone relate to this?

PS: This is completely unrelated but I wanted to mention this: I ordered some Marymond clothes a while after the whole debacle involving them in Japan(?) ft BTS & Twice (I think?) and they arrived like a few weeks ago and they're so pretty and nice! I'm really happy with them and knowing it'a for a good cause makes it feel even nicer. I've started to donate every once in a while to charities whenever I come across some and it's a nice feeling to finally have the financial stability to give back.

I can't say if it's depression, you need to see a psy to get a proper diagnosis. It could be depression, but it could be a wide range of symptoms. For example, I've been seeing a psy for a month now (once every week, but hopefully I'll move to once every two weeks soon) and we're working a lot on my anxiety and lack of motivation/energy, tackling the overal depressive episode step by step.

In my case I have friends, but I never have the courage or energy to contact them. I second-guess everything and focus way too much on me being depressed/not fun/etc (and thus imagine that people don't like seeing me), and even when friends say they're glad to see me, I'm doubting them since I don't have a good opinion of myself. I haven't found the perfect solution for that now, but I'm working on it with my psy.
Anyway, did the ex-school mates look happy to catch up with you? I know it's hard to see pass through our very harsh judgement of ourselves (again, I'm struggling but working on this personally) but you don't need to be cheerful or loud to be appreciated. People also enjoy someone who's more calm or serious, who can listen, etc.

I find it hard to make new friends in my 20s as well (especially as I'm bordering 30s lol) but my psy has been telling me to join an activity I like (whether a sport, or a book club, or anything else) to meet people with similar interest. I haven't done it yet lol but it's certainely a good advice.
It was definitively easier when seeing people the same age as us everyday in class, so you're not alone here. I feel the same :(

You'll be fine <3 feel free to message me if you need to talk more!

Completely random : anyone still playing Pokemon Go ? I need friends to exchange gifts (also they've just released a battle option between friends!!) but I don't want to go scout for Pokemon Go friends in the streets lol

Otherwise I'm buying my last Christmas presents tonight lmao I'm soooo late. But my brother just gave me ideas for him (finally!!!) the day before yesterday and yesterday I had other things to do. Wish me luck, shops are certainely going to be full tonight TT
I'm so ready for the food overload starting tomorrow evening lol
Merry Christmas to everyone celebrating it <3

I've been 30 for a couple of weeks now. People keep telling me I don't look it, which I guess is good, but I don't know what that'll do to my ego. Haha.

I have been grinding away at trying to find a better job, but I'm under qualified to do what I want to do and I have no idea what else I'm good at. I had a bit of a breakdown a week ago and got super depressed. I feel stuck.
gathyou 21st-Dec-2018 05:52 pm (UTC)
You said you're underqualified - but by how much? Do you know what kind of training you need to get there?
If it's a job not many people are trying to have, it's worth trying! Companies could consider someone really motivated that they could train to their own processes!

Most job agencies have something called skill assessments that help you realise what you can do (even if you don't realise yourself how much skills you have right now) and the kind of jobs you match with. There are even some tests online :)

it's finally last day of work! the past few months was so hectic and crazy, it drains all my time and energy so i'm glad that we've got 2 weeks of holiday. i have no plans so most likely i'll be staying home.

i'm saving up for upcoming exo concert (ksoo said it's in february) but ughhhhhhhh my group of friends decide to throw parties for every single thing (birthday, bridal shower, baby shower). i feel burdened and i'd rather use the money for paying bills/savings/etc i already think of an excuse so i wouldn't join them.

Besides omona and ontd, i want to be more active on livejournal again and post stuff on my journal! Anyone else who is active here? Would love to be friends and visit/comment on your journal!
pepsi_twist9 21st-Dec-2018 03:29 pm (UTC)
I love the platform for Livejournal but I'm not active on here. Especially after Tumblr was gone I don't think it'll be the new thing but I want it to again lol

I can’t wait for those year end lists determining which songs were ‘best’ end

Idk preferences in music and most entertainment is subjective so they rub me the wrong way, just phrasing it as ‘my favorites’ vs ‘top/the best’ would be more tolerable
lemonadetea 21st-Dec-2018 02:08 pm (UTC)
Omona, if you like a plotty, suspenseful drama, get watching Children of Nobody. It’s really good. (Subject matter is pretty heavy though, cw for child abuse.)

This Christmas I decided to do things I don't usually do.
This year I'm going to use my apartment building's sauna on Christmas Eve (I've always been at work the past few years so I've missed it). I've never seen It's A Wonderful Life, so I'll watch it when it's on TV. I might even buy glögi and gingerbread.
Any suggestions on what to do? What kind of traditions do you have this time of year?

My apartment's been a mess for weeks (months probably) and it's so difficult and annoying to try and clean the whole place at once, so a week ago I decided I'd do one or two small things per day. Today I finally managed to get to the point where the only things left are laundry (I have a laundry room reservation for tomorrow) and vacuuming. There's still some micro-managing to be done but that can wait for now.
Making this place seem habitable has also improved my mood. I'm still anxious, but at least I have some control over my living space. Kinda makes me feel like a human again, you know?
daynr 21st-Dec-2018 08:11 pm (UTC)
Controlling my living space gives me such peace, it's exciting you got yours sorted! And enjoy all the new things. One of our traditions is mulled wine, I love the way it looks and smells with all the spices. (You can do mulled non-alcohol things too. It's just fund to have the fragrant, warm thing.)
magicpineapple Plz advise me on tips to find an escaped cat...21st-Dec-2018 02:16 pm (UTC)
Any ideas on how to get an escaped (skittish...) cat back inside? He's been gone for, I think this is like day 6? now :( (no intended pun but roll with it lol) Tried the food, making a scent trail, being quiet & patient — to no avail.
I've seen the lil 💩 so I know he's at least alive, but I'm worried bc it's gonna get stupidly cold here soon :(
benihime99 Re: Plz advise me on tips to find an escaped cat...21st-Dec-2018 02:24 pm (UTC)
Any change in your house that would explain why he won't comeback?
