    This might crash and burn but..

    I feel like all of the mental anguish Trump/the world is throwing at us needs to be countered with a little positivity and encouragement. I'm not sure how it will work but maybe give encouragement to the post above you or respond to any reply. Whether it's a quote, funny meme describing them or telling them something wonderful about them. Just anything positive in general. We as a human race don't do this enough, imo.

    I don't want this to be misconstrued as a popularity thing and I'll delete if anyone is uncomfortable.

    @thechrisformat You were one of the first people to interact with me on AP. I feel like we have a special bond and I consider you a dear friend. You've been a positive influence in my life and let me bitch whenever I need to or talked me off of a ledge. The world needs people like you in it and I love you. :heart:

    I agree. Obviously stay informed on what is going on but do not spend endless time watching the news or reading online commentary on the negatives. I have been delving a lot of time into a few passion projects. I will talk about one in particular:

    I am in preproduction on a stop motion film, something I have wanted to do for years. It is challenging and I have found a lot of solace in my friends who we have all been encouraging each other to pursue their projects.

    I know that it can be a dark time and it boggles the mind to why and how people could support such a troll but also realize that I have not lost faith in Americans. We have been through shit before and it is comforting to see people fired up and actually care about the world they live in.

    Though I don't talk to you typically, I lurk an unhealthy amount and you're all wonderful and I've learned a lot from you all over the years. I hope you all find more happiness.

    @Fucking Dustin You are ok.

    @RiotGrlErin Prestigious

    I admire that you're moving a good ways away from home. That takes bravery. I couldn't do it and fuck working the to go shifts at your job lol

    Thank you! I appreciate that. It was definitely easier being in Jax for a year or so. The key is not moving completely away at first haha. But I like movement, it's nice but not for everyone.
    Yeah, it's not the greatest haha. I'm down to two shifts a week in Togo though. Plus the other manager slips me dining cards to use on cash checks sometimes haha

    @AelNire i appreciate the work you put in helping pick people back up when they're feeling down and also just making threads like this to inject positivity into the forum. also your gif game is srsly on point

    @CarpetElf your takes in the sports forum about the jaguars coaching/management and their bad decisions make me laugh harder than anything.

    @Fucking Dustin is okay

    @everyone else in here, yall are all great and i love u all
