@yookalelee these look super professional!! And cute!
@JMHowell let’s talk plants on discord! Also, I’m not a houseplant person either, but the great thing about native plants is that they don’t need our help. We just put them where they want to grow and they do the rest!!
@JMHowell if you want I can help you figure out native plant and garden stuff! Also, I am adding a patreon tier for that based on your feedback, too!
@JMHowell it’ll probably be fine! If anything relatively minor is wrong, you can get some money knocked off the house price - that’s what happened for us because of a shittily repaired part of the roof (that we still need to get fixed, haha)
@JMHowell holy shit, huge congrats!!!! So exciting!!!!!
@cryptovexillologist good luck, I’m sure you’ll gain more confidence! I think it must generally be scarier to learn how to drive when you’re past the “cocky teenage kid” age (I learned to drive at 18, although I never had a cocky teen phase, I wonder if it might have been slightly easier at 16?). In any case, take it slow, but know that you can do it!
@hauntedsuburbs thank you for the pep talk!! Ugh I wish I could have just a fraction of the confidence of people who drive like that, they’re obviously hogging far more than their share
@hauntedsuburbs thank you!! It’s kinda comforting to hear that even people who I think of as super confident drivers (you!) deal with anxiety around it. I’m trying to go easy on myself for making mistakes, it’s just hard when driving feels so high pressure. I guess I just have to get myself to practice more even though it suuuucks
@JMHowell thank you! It gives me hope for myself that you had similar driving anxieties and were able to get past them. I had tea and watched a nature documentary this afternoon, which helped somewhat. Trying not to let myself think too much about having to drive by myself tomorrow!
I did a test drive with Ezra today to practice driving to the farm where I’ll be going tomorrow to meet the farmer. It went fine and I should be feeling relieved or something but I’m stuck feeling panicky because I missed a turn, drove across the next town, and briefly stepped on the gas when I meant to hit the brakes at a stop sign. Nothing bad happened!! But I feel terrible!! Brains can go fuck off
@hauntedsuburbs Maybe the ghost is trying to woo you??? Bring it a gift for valentines day
@hauntedsuburbs aahh well I hope something interesting but not terrifying happens...? Is it an old building?
@hauntedsuburbs is this the same place you've been working where there have been other creepy occurrences??
@JMHowell whoops, this got buried in my notifications. Wow, the road thing sure is something.... definitely sucks for the people who live on that street.
@JMHowell yeah that's what I mean! There's HOLES in the city that are other towns? There's a long spindly arm following the river way out west? Amazing.
@JMHowell btw, looking up Cinncinnati on zillow made me learn that it is the WEIRDEST shaped city, wtf
@JMHowell dang, the busy season arrived suddenly. I had no idea places would often sell on the first day in cities! That's wildly stressful. I hope you have some good luck soon!!
@JMHowell That seems super weird, I wonder what's going on? Also that's frustrating as heck.
@yookalelee I really want Cayugas someday! The ducks themselves are so pretty and goth too. The weird thing about their eggs is the black is a thin coating that easily scratches off, and also their eggs get lighter as the laying season goes on, so they end up laying gray eggs. Still cool though!
@yookalelee not me, haha, I have the exact same situation with my desk. Jey is probably the best out of us at creating a good workspace.
