covid, comparing Italy and the USA 

I feel safe here in Italy, in a place where everyone wears their face mask in indoor spaces. The worst I can see is the occasional person who doesn’t cover their nose, but every person has a mask. And they’re often surgical or even FFP2 (N95) masks, not unwashed bandanas.

After a month spent in a place that had given up in fighting the pandemic while it was going through its worst wave of infections ever, staying here feels much, much safer.

It's a bit late, but I finally made these two custom emoji: :olympics: and :no_olympics:

Current mood: I just looked up “All Star minor key” on YouTube

Ooof, those times when you are watching a movie, you stop it because someone interrupts you with a series of text messages, and when their messages are over you no longer feel immersed in the movie and you struggle to resume watching it because now the movie feels like an extraneous story

currently relaxing to lofi hip hop radio - beats to relax/study to

The theme of today’s therapy session has been: 

Also, when my therapist asked me about a negative memory from my childhood, while we were doing an imagination exercise a week ago, my mind went blank. I could not thing of anything.

Today we just talked (and went meta talking about that exercise) and I came up with four or five examples from my youth.

The theme of today’s therapy session has been: 

I am still harbouring much anger for the way I was raised, and I wish I was taught earlier to allow myself to disobey authorities.

NB-misia, bigotry, birdsite 

Why did I check the Italian twitterers' reactions to the Demi Lovato news? It's the same unfunny joke hundreds of times

If you are reading this, please tell me: Are the emoji in the toot I'm replying to displayed correctly in your instance?
