Oh OK. I can understand being annoyed by her showing up, since she’s not really one of the original Star Wars characters. Personally, I don’t mind it, since I think she’s a good character. I was far more annoyed that Jar Jar constantly showed up in the Clone Wars.
Maybe I’m just thinking of rumours, but in addition to ‘‘Ahsoka’’ and future seasons of ‘‘The Mandalorian’’, I recall there being something about her showing up in future seasons of ‘‘The Bad Batch’’ and ‘‘Rangers of the New Republic’’. The last might just have to do with the fact that they’ve said the three New Republic live-action shows will be interconnected, so maybe they’ll keep Ahsoka out of it. She’ll no doubt be in the movie that’s supposed to wrap them all up, though.
The only episode I didn’t really like was The Jedi, mostly because I’m fed up with Ahsoka popping up in every single piece of expanded material
Outside of The Clone Wars where she originated, she’s in a handful of Rebels episodes and one episode of The Mandalorian.
She’ll also be in multiple shows going forward.
Happy Thanksgiving, all you Americans!
Well, there goes all of history, I guess. 😉
(Not to mention knowing things like that your parents love you–I hope they do, anyway.)

I wish I had a faith, but alas, I cannot believe was isn’t in front of me.
Do you not believe in atoms then?
There are layers to reality that we can never experience directly. Quite a bit of the world is mysterious if you look at it from a certain perspective, even if a lot is known about it.
I feel you. I find the mysteries of my faith to some extent preserve that sense of mystery for me, but it’s still not the same as when the whole world seemed that way. That shift is one of the toughest parts of growing up, I think.
Really sorry to hear that…I’ll say some prayers.
Congrats! Glad the first date went well.

I don’t feel motivated or inspired to do anything.
That’s tough. I find that I tend to feel more motivated once I actually force myself to start something. Maybe try keeping a consistent sleep schedule and getting up early to work on learning something new, like a hobby or a language. Often, once you start doing something like that, you feel a sense of accomplishment that keeps you motivated to continue. Getting started can be tough though.
And if you don’t mind me saying this, for the sake of being fully honest about what I think part of your problem is, I truly believe we are all ultimately made for God, which means that we can never find complete fulfillment without Him. At least that’s my own experience and that of the people I know.
That’s frustrating. But you also have tough competition. People like Harmy have already made very good colour grades and people tend not to like the artificial bluish tint that wasn’t in the original. I feel for you though. It’s tough to put a lot of work into something and not have it appreciated.
Do you have nothing to do or do you just not feel like doing anything?
I was wondering what kind of monstrosity that was until I realized it wasn’t a full room.
Both the above comments strike me as very true.
And yes, it’s absurd to think Netflix is jumping on the “anti-trans” bandwagon. The kind of stuff they feature is usually outrageous in the other direction.
I think precisely because the line is thin, I tend to cut comedians more slack here. A lot of good humour is offensive to people with thin skin. But I can also accept that some humour is legitimately offensive and in poor taste. I have no investment in or real knowledge about Dave Chappelle, so I can’t make a judgement in his case.
To all y’all complaining about Dave Chappelle, keep in mind that humour usually involves making fun of people and it doesn’t make people anti-whatever-they’re-making-fun-of:
I share your sentiments, but for entirely different reasons…
Glad to hear it!
Limited phone space is always annoying. At this point, I think the OS takes up 75% of the space on my phone, leaving space for a few apps and some photos, and that gets filled up really quickly.
As a Canadian, I agree extra. We have to learn the Imperial system here entirely because of the Americans, which I suppose is useful, but it’s a bit annoying that entire industries have to operate on the Imperial system just because the American companies in the industry do.
I like having my music on a harddrive so that I can catalogue and rate it as I wish and organize it better overall. I mostly use streaming for finding new music. CDs or records would be a nightmare though–I have over 20,000 songs and that would be unmanageable in disc form. I try to buy music when I like it, but I must confess that most of my collection just comes from other people.
Well, tons of doctors also aren’t getting it, so I think both getting the vaccine and not getting it can be reasonable. The problem is that people’s choices often aren’t rationally based and they just make decisions off of soundbites… But I feel you. None of my grandparents are getting vaccinated, and I worry what will happen if they catch COVID…
Not anymore. They force updates now. You can delay them, but sometimes updates still catch you by surprise. Or, as happened last time I updated my laptop, I had to do updates again and reboot my computer immediately after I had just done so. It’s much better when there are weekly updates or something and I can just choose a time every week to do them semi-manually…
Ugh, Windows 10 updates are the worst. There should just be an option to only do updates by selected “update and shut down/restart” in the shut down menu, without ever having the computer shut down on its own.
