    My dog passed away this morning... She died while in labor. Her puppies didn't make it either, in fact, she miscarried. I've been crying nonstop all day, and I do not know at the moment how to do anything but cry. I told my friends about it, and one of them had the nerve to say "I don't get it, it's just a dog". Yeah? Well, how would they like to die and then have me say at their funeral "I don't understand, they were just a person". My baby was my world, and now my world is gone. You know I get that some people just are incapable of understanding how others feel, but seriously?

    Anyway, this is my last thought before I try to get some sleep.
    I am struggling to understand how the world can be so beautiful, and yet so cruel at the same time.

    All my best wishes and thoughts. Our pets are our family. Our fur (or scale or feather etc) children. There's a deep emotional bond. I get it. I dread the day my cat (Selbbin btw) leaves. He's my best buddy, so I think I'll struggle to handle it. Cry away. Release those feelings of loss.

    Fear not. Even the ancient romans, cold and stone-like as they are, cried for their dogs.

    I'm convinced that anyone who says 'it's just a dog/cat/etc' obviously have never owned a pet in their lives, so of course they don't understand the pain of losing one. Our pets are family no matter how you look at it. Very sorry for your loss.:(

    So sorry. I love my baby too. It's so wrong that we get to keep them for such a short time.

    Thank you, It is very wrong. I do feel her presence though, I know that she is still with me though she is gone. She was my child, and I was her mother. There is no greater bond than between a dog and its owner. She was more than that though, she was my friend. She always listened to me, and never passed judgment... sometimes I wish humans were like that.

    I'm tired.

    I don't know why.

    I'm 22.

    Where did all my energy go? Where was the boy who could study for hours on end without pause, without losing concentration?

    Where was the boy who could run around all day, sleep for 6 hours, then get up again charging towards a new morning?

    I'm 22, but I feel 50.

    I'm probably one of the youngest members here, and I got to say I understand how you feel. I'm still very very young and yet I need a cup of coffee in the morning. My mother always said I was born 42.

    I like to refer to life as a battery... When we go to sleep we recharge that battery. I notice that a lot of the time, something has happened in a person's life that made their battery lose power easily. Therefore that's why some in my opinion feel more out of energy when they are younger.

    I understand how you feel, a few years ago a beloved cat passed in my arms, I still have tears for her.

    Missed the bus I was trying for by a minute, but there's another one due seven minutes later, no problem.

    Bus was five minutes late.

    But I build extra time into my schedule for just these occasions.

    Reserved a seat on the express train to the city via their website.

    Bus caught every red light and picked up or dropped off at every stop, leaving me rushing up the stairs to my platform. What should have taken five minutes had just taken eighteen.

    Did you know the express train leaves from a different platform on Saturday morning than on weekdays?

    So now I'm on a sub-express heading into my first day of new lessons. Like I said, I build in time, but there goes coffee and a muffin.

    Winter came late this year, but now it's here. Time for another season of Ice Road Pedestrians. I hope I get a motorcycle helmet and hobnail boots for Christmas.

    I miss my grandma.

    She's sick, old, and isolated due to Covid-19.

    Usually in this time of the year she'll be making noodle soup for me with chicken broth and hardboiled eggs. but I can't see her.

    Six fucking rounds of "find the crosswalk, now find the bicycle, now find the traffic light, now... " all because google is scared a spammer might find general search info.

    I just quit, I'll find it later.

    Of course, since I use one of the more popular VPNs, this is just my life now.

    Need some help with my new Lenovo Chromebook if anyone knows anything about laptops.

    On starting it up for the first time it asked for my internet password to connect me to the internet. I put it in and got an error message saying: failed to connect to network. bad password." Tried several more times and still nothing. Turned off laptop and router, left it for a few minutes. Started up router (BT hub) waited for it to turn blue. Tried again and still getting the message.

    Using my spare laptop at the moment and it's working fine. Anyone know what the problem could be or how to fix it?
