interesting words to use instead of “OCD”
- persnickety (it’s real word i promise)
basically there are loads of really cool words out there, (persnickety!!) so you don’t need to appropriate OCD for your own use if you don’t actually have it!
use these, people
please and thank
"Finicky" and "persnickety" are p. good choices if you want to be self-effacing. Here’s a quick list of some more self-effacing words that you might use to describe your own particular meticulous habits, for when you know other folks are thinking you’ve gone over the top to do something ever-so:
- Niminy-Piminy (yes!)
- "a bit of a Fussbuget" (Also: fusspot)
And describing the way you feel about people not hewing to your painstakingly fastidious behaviour? “It just makes me ornery when you don’t clean up.” , “I get really peevish when you skip instructions.” , “I’m quite fretful about being on-time!” Just some, y’know, examples.
woo. Gonna be in NYC on Thursssday~~
oh gosh yes. 8gb of RAM. May this help the memory clog that is my use.
think imma sit in the living room and draw new Phantom Brain chapters
fulldisclosure: I am not a programmer, coder, etc. I’m shit at it and have no real functional literacy in any programming language. However, these are some ideas I’ve had as projects-that-involve code.
- Old skool Redwall-flavour roleplaying board; styled after BBS sites that were common in the late 90’s, nearest accessible format being an imageboard/discussion board. Currently have this working on Kareha; mostly I just need a host and a domain, both can be got for cheap but I have no $$$ so not yet. Free hosts that allow perl have all banned me for having a spamtrap (“spam.txt”), I noticed some errors happened that I haven’t been able to fix (pages failing to post or reload after changing the text or deleting a post). Also still looking at other forum software. Want to implement a chat somehow.
- What I’ve been calling an “RP Hook-Up Site”, it’s styled like a dating site, but for non-romantic purposes. The overall “site culture” is one based around the generation of original content (writing and art), with writing samples as a backbone instead of pure character profiles. Options include specifying the types of characters you play (OCs, Fan OCs, Non-OC/Preexisting); things that I hate in RP solicits will be banned (no face-claims, the idea of “literacy” in the RP context…instead of trying to seem cool by citing “literate” people would browse samples, be able to view chats/sessions the player has on view). I desire the ablity for people to flag the kinds of RPs they are seeking (perhaps the kinds of situations per character?), as well as for people who RP for more complicated reasons (e.g. therians/otherkin, multiples/people with DID…basically those who use the format for spiritual/psychological reasons) so that they can communicate their needs/find others easier. Age verification so youngins can’t request erotic RP (they can be on the site otherwise and obvs you can’t control what folks do but it’s to more encourage age-appropriate interactions), but also for over-age folks to be able to state they are down with eroRP, or to plainly indicate they do not want that. Additionally this would be for genre, scenarios, and character-type requests. That’s all, frankly, check boxes. Harder level things would be the idea for multi-faced profiles…that one user has many sub-profiles, some of which may be hidden, all of which may be viewable as their own profile (with the option to hide the user), so that a character can stand on it’s own and other users are allowed a sense of mystery about their interactions…a larger scope would be to allow the formation of groups, which would provide a dedicated forum and webchat for a set of users, as well as areas to list member and add flavour (setting stuff, rules, etc); as well as users to each have their own forum/journal type area that is default-private/invite only, but has the option to post publicly for “open threads”, the idea being that users can accept/invite other users into a semi-private roleplay scenario, or leave it open to the site so that anyone can join. However the overall function of the site is more to advertise for off-site RP. I expect this to need more original code than the former, though I’m looking at opensource “social media” software. I also expect it would be, if accepted, more traffic-heavy and more load-bearing. Thus it would be more necessary to have a dedicated server as time goes on. Also moderation would be important, possibly attempting to do some kind of community self moderation but often [with you little shits] it’s a fox-in-the-hen-house situation. I also expect that some type of awards for interaction would be given, not “achievements” but perhaps something like “the daily crown” on Doll Divine, where logging on gets you a point to respend in community involvement (on DD the point is given as an award to a user-created doll you like, like an upvote) because it serves no faux-money purpose, in deters hording points (imagine if you had to create one original post for every “like” on tumblr, because there’s no content value for the liking user, it doesn’t contribute to spam-abuse) such a system might be used within a “karma”/upvote system (you spend your log-in points to give kudos/tokens of esteem to other users for making constructive contributions, a user with a high number of esteem points is someone who has the respect of their peers and contributes to exemplifying “good content” over poorer content) but again, rough. The biggest hurdle for this project, after the code, would be the maintenance…my observations as a user are that most hobbyists expect a professional-quality hobby-interest site, even if it’s run by fellow hobbyists. The site is more of a hobby to me and I worry that the potential userbase would demand the attention of a full-time job. Again, I currently don’t have the money to experiment with a functional site yet, so this is more something I want to work in theory and may not see air for several years. Ugh I’ll be 30 and I’ll basically be one of those guys in a 3-wolf-moon shirt uuuuggh.
other potential problems: admin wants to be a user. no ads/minimal obtrusive ads (static, relevant)
anyway hello i have a hobby i just don’t participate in it ever.
so i just saw this kinda mental health affirmation-type post and something ticked me off; more than affirmations usually do. So lemme just clear the air:
In bipolar disorders, mania is not happiness.
let me say that again:
Bipolar. Yeah… mania is not happiness.
Bipolar disorder is subject to any number of different types of manias, the “highs”, that contrast with the “lows” of various depressions. A “high” day is not a “good” day, it is just as bad as feeling the lowest rock-bottom of depression, it is a symptom of the disorder. Mania is sometimes masked with euphoria, but it is not contentment. Mania is also subject to be violent, impulsive, aggressive, hyperactive, and irritable; someone having a manic episode may start a number of projects that quickly overwhelm them, or they loose interest, or they just feel restless. Mania is not a maintainable state, the depression? Often comes as a “crash” from the manic episode. Some sufferers have “minor” manias that lack the usual “high-intensity” behaviour of Type I manias, but it is still a manic episode and while the behaviour might pass as normal elation, frustration, or confidence, it too is not maintainable, it’s not a “milder” form of Bipolar, just different.
I can’t really say what happiness is because that’s a subjective observation. But mania is not normal happiness; it’s not necessarily “good-feeling”. And if you’re going to write positive affirmations about how to accept mental illness and direct anything at Bipolar people, you need to grok that.
