Hello. Just to let you know I'm actually fine. To be perfectly honest, I'm glad some of you are concerned about my well-being after my tulpa's thread in /ef/. Anyway, he's gone away for now, but he always comes by anyway.

So, how are you all doing today? I hope you are all well.

A handheld that utilizes a single-board computer. It was made by a now-defunct tech startup company and it looks awesome.

Because of the fact that the company that made it is gone, it is also mostly community supported. It seems to be a good community too though.

Yeah, everyone was wearing masks, and nobody sat next to anyone, which was actually really nice, everyone basically had two seats instead of one.

The plane was only like 1/3rd full and the airport wa as a ghost town. I have never seen or heard of an airport being that empty in my life. Getting through security took like five minutes.

I'll post pics of the airport soon.

I’ve been completely abstaining from caffeine and sugary things for just over a month now.

My mum bought me a energy drink today. After drinking it I was super hyper active for a few hours, and now I can’t go to sleep. I drank it about 8-9 hours ago and my brain still feels pretty hyper. Not as bad as when I drank it, but I can’t get to sleep because my minds still racing. I used to drink energy drinks everyday or every other day, and I’d also have about 3-4 teas a day, and some sweets, and it wouldn’t affect me at all, or at least I didn’t realise it.

After ‘detoxing’ from all added sugar and caffeine for what must be about a month and a half one can is like a drug. It’s like being a kid on a mad sugar rush. It’s 3:40AM and I feel the need to run about my room, or at least do something. Despite the fact that I’ve been going to sleep at 12 for awhile now.

I think I’m just going to have to stay up all night.

It just goes to show how much these things can affect you. Obviously they’re going to affect you more severely after being off them for a long time, but surely taking them everyday must also have a big, if less drastic affect.

>detoxing from all sugar
Do you still eat carbs?
How about particularly sugary fruits (ripe pears, mangoes, oranges)

Also, if you are still feeling affects of caffeine after 8 hours, there is something else wrong with your body. It is not a problem with sensitivity, it means your body is not filtering contaminants like it should.

No, I’m obviously eating fruit and things like that. Sugar is an essential part of the human diet. What I mean is nothing with added sugar, no sweets, etc.

>your body is not filtering contaminants like it should.

A few months ago I used to drink things like energy drinks pretty regularly and they didn’t really affect me. My diet hasn’t really changed since then, other than removing them.

>>42138983
Sugar is an essential part of the human diet until you medically have to start avoiding as much of it as you can. Which sucks.

affecting you more does make sense, but even if the affect is more intense, it should still be mostly processed out in a reasonable time. We can use my blood sugar as an example. It spikes higher than most people's, but if I am managing things correctly it should go back down in a reasonable time.

>>42138985
To be honest energy drinks used to make me sleepy (maybe even slightly lethargic) sometimes when I was taking them regularly, but that wasn’t common, so maybe there is something wrong with me.

What was in it? And how many servings did it have? Did you drink the whole thing? Did it have a ton of caffeine? Sugar rush dies off very quickly and is followed by crash.

Good afternoon.

ngl I really this pic of Scorbunny with hot sauce. It's adorable as fuck.

Anyway, I've been messing with noisy shitcore-y stuff lately (i.e. Passenger of Shit, etc.) because I'm running low on ideas (for now at least). Also, I can't find a written tutorial on Pico-8 game development, so I'm kinda stuck on that too.

So, yeah, my day's been relatively uneventful so far. How are y'all doing?

Yep.
It's neat, I've been talking on Toki Pona Facebook groups, and knowing the language lets me communicate with all sorts of people I wouldn't normally be able to, from all over the world.
I mean, poorly, because I'm still learning, but I like it.

I like the language a lot as a tool for mental health, as the book for the language mentions. There are no hyperbolic words, no contradictory terms like "bad friend", no way to let yourself spiral into over the top catastrophizing language. Every idea must be expressed succinctly and at its most basic level, since there are only 120 words and no niceties or clutter. So thinking in Toki Pona is kinda... meditative.

It also works great, as I touched on, as an interlang, for both parties to learn the one very small and simple language so that they can communicate with each other, instead of having to learn each other's massive languages.

And it's really really easy to learn. So I can push myself to actually finish completing learning a language for once.
