I really spent two hours talking to my classmate/friend at the school's parking lot after class. It was a decent conversation about tons of different things, so no regrets there, but I feel like going to the movies or getting something to eat with him would have been a better choice than just standing there for two hours in the parking lot.

[Quote] Nope. I've been intrigued by minimalism before I found out about those two corny guys. They would be cool if they just exposed more people to the idea of minimalism without acting like they created it. They act like they coined the term. It seems like they turned minimalism into a marketing scheme for themselves ("I'm just going to quit my usual job and spread this idea of minimalism to make money now."), which is pretty corny if that's really what they're doing. I'm not going to limit myself to a certain number of items I own, but I'll just try to only buy what I need and what brings me joy. I'm not going to call myself a minimalist, but I can say I learned some things from the minimalist approach.

- I had a dream about meeting Ariana Grande. She dressed like how I'd expect her to, but it was a unique outfit I hadn't seen before. I tried talking to her, but she only gave brief replies, which was understandable because she had to deal with the other fans as well. I don't know why, but that dream kind of inspired me to have the life I want. - I feel like going the minimalist route, but I'm just too interested in fashion and style. Deep down, I know I need to work on getting physically fit first. I'm not fat or anything like that, but I could be more muscular and more masculine-looking. This seems like insecure talk, I know, but there's nothing wrong with aspiring to look a little more muscular.

I had an awkward moment with my teacher today. When we were doing a sample problem and she was walking around to see how everyone was doing, I yawned and looked at the example/demonstration on the wall. I was really trying to work on that problem; it was just that she came to me unexpectedly at the wrong time. I haven't been getting good rest lately. I've been feeling like absolute trash. I feel unhealthy, but I'm going to do something about it. I shouldn't be feeling like this. I should be in the best shape of my life right now.

I can't stand when people teach grown folks how to act and talk. You're basically teaching them to be fake as hell. I know of YouTube channels that teach people how to be charismatic. For all we know, sociopaths could be picking up new methods of getting info from people and tricking them. Why not just keep things the same and teach people to be themselves? I don't know about you, but if people seem like they're too into me the first time I talk to them, I'm going to be careful instead of thinking they're so charming and charismatic.

They're taking so long on the repair for my A.P.C. Petit New Standard raw denim. I just saw a picture I took from back when I they were new and crisp. I feel like getting another A.P.C. PNS pair out of nostalgia and the notion that it fits me the best out of any jeans, but I already just got a new pair of Rogue Territory. Didn't SonOfRise wear raw denim? I remember back when he kept asking questions about it on here and some of us were getting annoyed by him, downvoting his posts and whatnot. Those were the days.

Are People Still Into Raw Denim?

I respect the vision! Raw denim is the only denim I prefer to wear nowadays, so I'm intrigued. I wanted something similar to A.P.C.'s Petit New Standard cut, but with more quality and craftsmanship. 12 ounces seems like an ideal weight for the warmer months ahead, so I might consider getting myself some of that custom denim. Some questions: Do you only do one weight (12 ounces)? What are the different types of hardware, threading, and pocket that you offer for the custom denim? How much stretching should I account for?

How do you deal with people, particularly family members, who don't care about the environment? I have a younger cousin who lets the bath water, not the showerhead water, run full blast. I'm over here cringing as I hear the water run like she doesn't even care. It goes on for extended durations. I don't know what she's been taught, but this stuff is a waste of water. It doesn't help that she's the type to look up to and glorify Instagram girls like Kylie Jenner. It's cringeworthy. She's such a hedonist; I don't think she even empathizes with anyone else. Maybe she's a sociopath. I know her parents aren't always around due to work and all, but my parents were seldom around as well and I'd say I'm more compassionate than most people. I just wish more people would care more instead of living and promoting this hedonistic lifestyle. Social media's a great thing, but people need to stop letting it turn them into soulless zombies.

[Quote] I think a lot of folks in our generation (assuming we're in the same generation) have this rather cynical view of society and think things took a turn for the worse. A lot of things are better now than before, although I do feel like all those modern segregationists out there are just holding a lot of people back. People want to only hang out with people of their racial identity all of a sudden just because they feel comfortable and and empowered. What I think would be more empowering is to hang out with a diverse group of people and realize that you have what it takes to deal with people who are different from you.

- I'm so out of shape. I need to stop with this bad diet and lack of sleep. I'm not obese, but I get tired too easily. Basically skinny fat. - Today was a rather disappointing day, but it ultimately showed me I need to make some changes to get the life I want. My social life is disappointing because I really don't have the kind of friends I want. It's so often that I see these folks in movies and music videos hanging out and wish I had friends like that. When I hang out with people, we don't know what to do except some repetitive, predictable stuff such as getting food or drinks. I don't think it's the location that causes this. I still see other folks in our area having cool weekends and whatnot. - Now I'm just in my room, listening to music on Spotify. Check out "Still Got Time" by ZAYN and PARTYNEXTDOOR. I capitalized their names because they're stylized as such. It's a great song. - I might start making Vocaroo posts in this thread. - I just watched this movie called [i]iBOY[/i] on Netflix. It was a good watch.

One of my pet peeves is when people overestimate changes in our society. People are always talking about how things will go entirely digital since when? The '90s? I still haven't seen any of that being close to happening. "Books will be entirely digital soon." Nope. Barnes & Noble still exists at its current state for a reason. The physical books are still selling; many still prefer physical books over digital ones. "Newspapers will go away soon." Nope. I see newspapers everywhere. There are still many people who love reading physical newspapers. "There will be no more physical copies of movies. Streaming will take over." They just recently introduced 4K discs to the market. There are still people buying discs, obviously. "Every car will be self-driven soon." Man, many people are still reluctant to trust self-driven cars.

Has anyone here dealt with a sugar addiction? I feel bad about not having taken good care of my body. Sure, I went to the gym, did some running, and shot some hoops, but drinking all that bubble milk tea on a frequent basis was not good for me. There were times when I couldn't stand going without a sugary drink in a day. I think too much consumption of sugar causes excessive thirst. I don't want prediabetes. Plus, that money spent on sugary drinks could be used for clothes instead.

[Quote] I'm pretty sure he's joking. I've been watching some of his videos lately, and I find them hilarious. This type of over-the-top comedy is the best. If there's any type of over-the-top humor that's acceptable and actually funny and entertaining, it's this. I noticed this kind of humor has gotten more prevalent within the streetwear community. It's basically making fun of ourselves for being so into what we're into, which is great because we shouldn't be taking ourselves too seriously.
