LOL as if that’s gonna stop them from owning smartphones, teenagers don’t even have that much money to even pay for it to begin with cuz they’re school kids, so it’s always the parents that pay for it anyways. This proposed legalisation is literally not going to do anything.

You can’t download FLACs from this site but I’ve been using spotifydown.com for quite sometime now and the audio quality imo has been super solid so far imo. Really has helped me massively in terms of relying less on Spotify since I can just rip the song from there and therefore have my own copy of the tracks/albums etc.

I’ve also used Psst too as an alternative to the current spotify client on my laptop and that’s been also great too, much more lightweight than the main client, but unfortunately premium is a must if you want to fully use it though ;-;

Let’s hope this enables other ppl to start making their own ones and therefore, decentralise the market esp from Nvidia

Google Podcasts is gone — and so is my faith in Google ( www.theverge.com )

The Podcasts app is just the latest product to go through a process I’ve come to call The Google Cycle. It always goes the same way: the company launches a new service with grandiose language about how this fits its mission of organizing and making accessible the world’s information, quickly updates it with a couple of neat...

Whoever wrote this article should have lost faith in Google years ago

I heard Taotronics earbuds are supposed to be super good esp for audio quality at a decently affordable price as well in comparison to other affordable ear buds for that price.

I use both protonmail and tutanota atm. Had good experiences so far tbh! But for those I know that are truly dedicated to the foss lifestyle, most I know either self host their email service or use something like posteo/distroot. Some I know use riseup as well but I think it’s propertiary I think but have a huge emphasis on privacy though and being very anti corporate.

I should think so, though honestly I have not gotten any spam from protonmail/tutanota ever since I switched over from gmail years back and I’ve only gotten emails that’s I’ve signed up to or that I know are relevant to me aka important emails.

Services like gmail survive by spying on your emails in relation to also having ads on their services, hence why you get so many emails and junk you don’t remember signing up on the promotions tab, despite gmail is supposed to be well renowned for “anti-spam” whilst also not being totally private whatsoever cuz of it. It’s all just a cover tbh esp with top free mail providers.

People honestly need to start using alternatives to Discord fr esp as the app just keep getting more and more shittier in use as time goes on, plus nitro and the fact you gotta pay for themes etc is such a scam tbh

So I shouldn’t proud of my personal identity and my roots? Which literally plays a huge part of who I am today and especially, where I was brought up cuz without it, I wouldn’t be me and I wouldn’t have an identity without it.

But ok then go off……..

If maybe teachers were paid a lot better, many teachers wouldn’t be forced to do things like this but it does seem the teacher is enjoying what’s she’s doing atm, so I would say that’s a big win tbh.

Still, Teachers are way underpaid for what they do tbh and get way too much shit for the things they have to put through.

Not surprised tbh

And there’s me, I found both really interesting at school and throughly enjoyed it way more than geography, which was the case with me at school, but studying at home has been far more interesting in comparison o.o

Managed to get myself referred to a psychiatrist/psychotherapists for my complex issues after having previously done counselling/CBT with very little help in effectiveness of my emotional wellbeing due to having a complex past. Honestly can’t really believe it’s taken for me to get health insurance to be able to get help for it after having tried to get help via state healthcare but they’re entirely useless and only offer counselling/cbt within short terms and discharge you if they can’t help you anymore ;-;

It’s been such a slow process and it’s had a huge effect on my university education negatively, due to it but honestly I’ve haven’t felt more optimistic than ever tbh despite having days where it does get difficult.

As someone who is mixed race, I felt this so much ;-;

Even worse when ppl of your generation (gen z) try to make you out as a completely white girl cuz of growing up some what privileged (even despite them knowing that you grew up in a very intensively abusive environment)

Like as if I had a choice in being born lol

It’s like I just can’t win and I’ll never be able to fit in anywhere cuz of these labels and standards ppl have to determine if your mixed race or not and it’s a literal form of ancestral erasure, which is just purely disrespectful and out right offensive imo.

If you have money, you can literally get away with anything despite not being legal to do so cuz you can just buy the authorities instead

Gaza is getting less than half the humanitarian aid it needs to avoid famine ( english.elpais.com )

[The] U.N. World Food Programme estimates that at least 300 trucks of food are needed every day to meet the basic needs of the population. During the first half of March, an average of 159 trucks a day have entered Gaza, representing 40% of the minimum amount required, according to U.N. data. Before the Israeli offensive, an...

The fact that there’s very little we can do to actually stop this besides boycotting and protesting about this, is what makes it even more awful tbh

What lunches do you eat on a weekly basis?

I'm looking for easy and cheap options for lunches on weekdays. I mostly eat deli sandwiches and hot dogs right now and I always feel like shit after eating them. I think I need something healthier but I don't have time over my lunch hour to cook anything too fancy. What do you all do for reliable healthy easy lunches?

I normally eat omelette and rice for lunch, with rice pre made from the night before but you can always quicken with packet rice if you don’t have the time to cook rice and pre mix eggs to quicken the preparation time and just add the seasonings you normally add to the omelette.

Yeah sure, they are deffo trying to flood so much aid by rejecting most of the aid that’s trying to come to the country. Absolutely not an attempt to commit genocide to the Palestinian ppl whatsoever.
