May you have the courage to break the patterns in your life that are no longer serving you

there is no reason for credit bureaus to be giving my info to marketers! and on top of that you put artificial limit on how you accept opt out requests! why is every financial system garbage! i don't consent to shit just by having an SSN!

here's a new one: i get a credit card promotion in the mail. back of the letter says to opt-out by going to a website... but in order to opt out permanently you have to *mail them a letter.* online opt outs are only good for 5 years. why

depression randomly deciding i don't get to do any work today is actually just windows update deciding to reboot me without asking. that's going to be my excuse next time i have to skip work due to my mental health being crappy

it's not a depression nap, i just needed a power cycle and you gotta make sure all the big capacitors have a chance to drain fully

@1ynx that's exactly what i wish i had... unfortunately, current life circumstances mean that it's more difficult getting someone to lay on top of me than it used to be
