i always want things i really don't need

So, serious talk.

How is anyone supposed to both have a full time job and be a solo 1d fan?

  • nicky: i know we're all adults here but I think we might need better supervision...
  • matt: *stares aggressively* *whispers* Ily and will die for you
  • aaron: I consulted with everyone I care about: me, myself, and I all say we don't care.
  • dan: my favorite thing to do is yell "sorry for your tiny penis," at every giant truck I see.
  • renee: *fake ass smile* I'm trying really hard to be moderately nice.
  • allison: you're right, I don't need to spend my money. But I <i>want</i> to and I <i>need</i> you to fuck off.

  • (side note - View of a Virgo rising, Leo sun in the 12th, Libra moon in 2nd, mercury Cancer in 11th, venus Leo in 12th, mars Leo in 11th)
  • Aries: was once my best friend, she made literally everything in my life brighter and always helped me to just enjoy things and stop worrying all the time. Also great hugs. Just simply has that energy, wherever it may be - physically, mentally, staying up until you binge watched that show, giving you their last money so you can get yourself something to eat before you starve to death, always down for a talk and a walk even if they had a packed schedule. Please don't miss out on times when you just have to take a day off to get your beautiful and strong energy back. I care about your health so please don't forget to eat properly and don't miss out on that quality time if needed.
  • Taurus: a girl from my drama class and my little sisters moon sign, I am just so in love with your sense for aesthetic. Total sunshines. I feel like I can always rely on you, super compassionate and knows how to make you feel comfortable when youre not. I love that when you have a goal in your mind, you will give your everything to achieve that! Also so humble but like I want you so desperately to know how beautiful I think you are!! I enjoy your company a lot. Please don't be afraid of changes, I know that's such a mainstream thing to write for Taurus but I really do believe that maybe sometimes you need to be reminded that life can also begin at the end of your comfort zone.
  • Gemini: a guy and a girl from biology class, I am literally stunned at how much these people know. Eloquent fluffballs. I could listen to you spreading knowledge 24/7, make great jokes in my opinion and just kind of knows... everyone?? Get along with so many people, can be very chill but also full of energy when they're talking about things they are interested in. Also fun-fact kings and queens. Please remind yourself to stay loyal to your true friends, you may know many people with whom you get along with so well and for sure everyone is intersting in their own way, but it's very possible to feel lonely in a crowd. Your closest friends will always get you out of that and help you, I promise.
  • Cancer: a close friend of mine, literally the most caring person I've ever met. Actual comedians. I don't know I just straight up fell in love with your humour. All the Cancers I know have or had some extreme physical problems going on, please get well soon if you read this and you're also not feeling well. Mentally on the next level, strong and kind of unbreakable. Don't hide their feelings because they just know that when you bottle up your feelings it's never going to end well. They just get you and will be there for you no matter what. Please take care of yourself just as well as you do with your friends and family, you are a true blessing and it's definitely okay to rant or cry or just let it all out.
  • Leo: my english teacher and a guy I used to be close with, very often completely misunderstood and taken for granted, which can lead to unhealthy behaviour. Will make you feel great after a plain shit day. I strive to be this talented at just expressing myself or being confident, even if you just want the world to think you are confident when you're actually not. Cuddly queens and kings. Better not hurt their pride because it took them a lot of time to actually get to that level and in a world where people hate on you for loving yourself, to them it feels like, despite all their work, they are not worth of loving themselves. Please don't forget that although sometimes it's hard to look in the mirror and like what you see, there are caring and warm-hearted people who love you just the way you are.
  • Virgo: a girl in my class I simply adore, I always annoy you with my endless compliments. Kind of just in love with these down-to-earth and sweet people. Either super chill or worried a lot, I wish I could just hug you until you feel less stressed. Smol but strong beans you can learn a lot from. So reliable, I actually hate doing group projects and always want to do everything myself but since you share that opinion we created something I was really proud of and now we always do them together. Please remember that passion is something you shouldn't be ashamed of, you simply don't have to be because it's something you love and your needs are valid. Also dreaming big, it's possible, especially for you so why not?
  • Libra: a girl I recently got to know and am already completely amazed by, literal social butterflies who sometimes only know in hindsight how much they enjoyed the company of someone because they adapt so easily and it's rare to find someone where you can just simply be yourself. Love how they view life and that they make me want to talk more. Very open and you never feel excluded because they just know how to include everyone. Please don't forget to remind yourself who you truly are and not to lose yourself in another person, because there really is only one you no matter how good you are at adapting to literally every social situation, you are amazing and I want you to be comfortable as well.
  • Scorpio: my dad and my ex boyfriend's mom, two very caring peole in their own way. I always love how sharp their sarcasm can be. Can comfort extremely well when they want to. So many secrets and things to know about them that I can lose myself in them wanting to explore whats actually behind their shell. Teaches you life lessons. Please don't forget that humans aren't flawless and that's completely okay. You don't have to hold onto old grudges, communication is key and talking about these things, confronting these people who did you wrong will help you grow as a person.
  • Sagittarius: an old friend of mine, very cute people who get interested in so many things and they are so versatile and adventurous I absolutely love their lively nature. Memes™. Total dorks you can fall for in a second. Are actually the best partners to just talk to about anything because they will be interested and share their opinion with you. Please remind yourself that cutting off people can be a very wise decision and you don't have to keep up with everyones shit if that's just not what you're in for.
  • Capricorn: I am literally so attracted to these people it's unreal, although I kind of always think that they don't like me...... anyways, my bigger twin sisters are caps and they are humble souls who really had to fight for a lot in life sadly. So proud of you. Keep up with the hard work, you really deserve everything. So realistic and pure I have heart eyes. Supportive and extremely loyal. Will stand up for you if you need it. Straight face™ but still manages to make even the most serious people laugh. Please remind yourself to not overdo it with the work, take a day off to relax and let yourself go maybe, even if it's hard - with the right people you don't ever have to be afraid of being yourself.
  • Aquarius: my ex boyfriend whom I had a crush on for like 4 years, teached me great life lessons. Will always have a weakness for aquas, they just attract me so much, how much of a fluffy dork can you be tbh? Capacity of acceptance is incredible. So much fun to be with. Are kind of just good at everything? You can talk to them about anything, it won't feel weird, they won't question it and just talk to you about that topic. So friendly, an underrated trait in my opinion, just complete and simple friendliness you enjoy to the fullest. Please remind yourself to let people not only see your amazing shell but also your stunning core, there are people who love to talk about the same things you love and nothing about you is weird, you are special and I absolutely love it.
  • Pisces: a very sweet guy I've been texting with for the past months, very open minded and also have that sensitivity I strive to have. Very inspirational smol puppy. Actual daydreamers™, may be late to school but love deeply and would never neglect your love. Kind of hate almost everything that's planned out? (I'm sorry I just love to plan things out) will hug you no matter what. Does not fear to dream big, is very talented at artsy stuff in my opinion. Please don't forget that even if it seems hard, and yes our school system is kind of very bad,we get to have that education and your dreams will be reality if you work hard enough to achieve them. You have so much potential, please don't ever waste it.

💐I Dislike How Insecure Ino Was/Is (IDK If She Still Is lol) When It Came To Her Self Image. (Very Long Post) My Opinion. No Hate Towards Sai/Ino Or Sasuke/Sakura. Analysis💐

 Ino Displayed A Longing To Be Seen By Others When It Came To Her Image. The First Person To Acknowledge On How “Beautiful” She Is Was Sai. 

Ino Instantly Grew An Attraction Towards Him (B/C He Resembles Sasuke) Which Could Be Seen As Shallow (B/c She Doesn’t Even Know Him). The Result Of How “Shallow” Ino’s Personality Was Shown When Sai Lied To Her Calling Her  “Beautiful”, When He Actually Meant She’s “Ugly”. This Action Showed How Insercue/Foolish Ino Was When She’s Suddenly Shock That Someone Actually Found Her Attractive.

Little Did She Know That People “Especially Boys” Have A Tendency To Lie Straight To Your Face Without You Ever Knowing How They Truly Feel. Not Knowing That Rule Sai Had To Learn The Hard Way, That He Can’t Express His “True” Words Towards Everyone Especially When It Came To Girls.   

Because We “Girls” Tend To Wear Our Hearts On Our Sleeves Thinking What They Say Is Truly What They Feel. So Sai Knew He Couldn’t Call Ino Ugly Or He Will Get The Same Treatment As He Did From Sakura.

Please Don’t Tell Me Ino & Sai Had A “Strong” Friendship Before They Started Dating.

B/C We All Know That’s Some “Major” B.S.

She Only Wanted To Get To Know Sai Because She Finally Found Someone (That Looks Similar To Sasuke) Who Thought She’s Attractive. This Action Caused Her To Want To Be “Desire” By Both Sasuke & Sai.

 It’s A Shame How One Boy “Sasuke” Could Destroy These Girls (Sakura & Ino) Confidence. And To Make Matters Worst The Girls Start To Feel Like They Are “Useless” or “Ugly” Because Of Being Rejected By Him. 

Where The Hell Were Their Parents During Their Childhood? 

Ino’s By Far One Of The Most Develop Female Characters In The Series. She Faced So Many Hardships Such As Rejection, Insecurity, Troubling Friendships and Death.

I Strongly Dislike How Kishimoto Created Some Of The Naruto Girls To Portray As “Lovestruck, Insecure & Weak Minded Female Characters”. When That’s Not The Case.

 End.

🎶Thanks For Making Me A FIGHTER🎶

P.S

The “Sai & Ino” Episode Was Very Weak & Fast Paced. I Literally Felt No “Love/Friend” Connection Between The Two Characters.

It Was Awkward As Hell Seeing Her Hugged Sai. 

Shikamaru Hiden Novel Had More Emotion Then This Episode.

 I Know The Novels Are Typically Better Than The Show/Movies, But ShikaTema Felt More Realtistic In The Episode .So,There’s Something “Missing” With Sai & Ino’s Connection.   

Did You Notice How Ino Disregards The Word “Kindness” And Only Focuses On Being Called “Beautiful”?

 She Still Shows Signs Of Being Insecure (Even Her Reaction Could Be Seen As How A Young Girl Would React Being Called Pretty For The First Time).

My Point To All Of This Is Ino Yamanaka Is More Than A Beautiful/Kind Hearted Kunoichi She’s A Survivor. 

She’s Not A Character Who Waits Around Waiting For Someone Just To Acknowledge Her. She Needs Someone Who’s Capable Of Showing Actions Of Affection Rather Than Speaking Them. That’s Why I Shipped That “Small” InoKiba Moment. B/C Kiba Was The Closest Thing (Similar To Shikamaru) Who Seemed Like A Capable Character Of Always Having Ino’s Back When She Needs Someone To Catch Her Falls.

DAMN THIS IS LONG! LMAO (I’m Just Caught In My Feelings) I’m Sorry Followers. 

  • Me: I'm exhausted
  • Parents: You aren't really exhausted, wait till you have kids

Hey I'm sorry if you've already answered this but I was wondering if you had any tips on staying focused and committed in lectures? My lectures always make me tired and I end up leaving early. I really want to do well but when I try and stick it out, I don't retain anything anyways. Thanks in advance. :)

Helloo! No need to apologise! Here are a few things you could try:

  • make a commitment to yourself - write down a goal of going to and staying in 2/3 lectures during the week. If you manage, reward yourself! If you fail, you’ll have let down yourself and probably feel bad about it. Whilst feeling bad about it isn’t awesome, it’s a good way to motivate yourself to try again next time!
  • don’t bring your laptop unless your need it - I think everyone is tempted to go on random sites, do random stuff, just generally zone out if their laptop is in-front of them. I am no different haha! Unless you absolutely need it, it might be worth trying writing your notes.
  • put your phone away - again, it’s tempting to look at it! Put it in your bag so you can’t just pick it up whenever you’re bored. Or use Forest or FocusNow apps to gamify your time management and help you stop checking your phone!
  • sit closer to the front - it might just force you to pay a little closer attention plus you might not want to walk out in front of the entire lecture hall. If you’re in a tough spot to get out from at ease, you might just wait and sit through the whole thing!
  • be prepared beforehand - see if you can find the material before the lecture begins and make sure you’ve done any required readings. If you’ve got an understanding, it might be more interesting to you and therefore you become more engaged. This can also mean you end up only taking the most relevant notes!
  • eat and drink wisely - if you’re feeling tired, try eating an apple (or drinking coffee) beforehand. 
  • be active (even if it’s just in your mind) - write down any questions you have or answers to rhetorical questions your lecturer mentions. If you’re confident enough to answer or ask questions, go ahead!
  • if you zone out, try to get back into focus - we all do it, there is not need to beat yourself up about it! Just take a moment to regain concentration and listen.
  • record and review the lecture - if your lectures are already recorded, it could be worth watching them again should you have really lost focus. Or if you notice at some point you’ve stop listening write down the time and then go back in the recording to that point so you aren’t just hoping it isn’t important. If they aren’t recorded by your uni, Microsoft OneNote has a great recording feature!

Hope this helps! xx

youcantfindmeno-w  asked:

Hey!! So I am a future pet owner and I really want a German Sheppard, a calico cat, a pastel ball python and possibly a king mantis. Is there any advice you have for me? I already know that you should keep cats from reptiles, and that dogs and cats don't always get along but I don't have much other knowledge than that -.- help a future pet owner out?

I’m not the best at mammals as pets, but one thing I’ve learned is that dogs need things to do, and most “bad” dogs are just dogs that haven’t had a lot of work put into them. I’d follow some dogblr blogs with german shepherds- @pawsitivelypowerful, @floofboof, and I know there’s others- to see how they train their dogs to get ideas. A trained dog is a dog with healthy outlets for energy!

The snake, however- that I can definitely give you advice on. Calico is a beautiful morph without any neurological issues or physical deformities that come with it- just make sure you avoid the calico combo “calibee,” which has spider in it. Spider’s got a neuro defect called wobble, and it can drastically reduce the snake’s ability to feed.

As far as animal management, just be sure to get a cage with locking doors or a lid with latches! It might be good to have a separate reptile room where the mammals aren’t allowed, but it can also be hard to keep a cat or dog out of a room, so training them to ignore the reptile cage might be best for everyone’s stress levels.

Also, be aware that you might have to have two vets! Not all exotic vets treat cats and dogs; not all cat/dog vets treat reptiles. If you can find a practice that has vets that take both mammal and reptile patients (even if it’s with different doctors), that might be ideal. 

Good luck!

I'm just curious though and i hope u answer this. Why are still hopeful of camren and think that they are dating on the low? Like i don't think its that simple for u like theres a deeper reason as to why u still believe they're together and i really wanna know please? 🙏 😊

Do I need a deeper reason than just wanting them to be happy? 😊  Tbh I have no idea if they’re together right now, but I’m not losing hope because I know that we barely see anything and that most of the things we do see are often manufactured. So they could be together or they could not be together but because I’m still and will always be a delusional CS, I choose to believe that their love is still alive even if we don’t get to witness it anymore. And like I said before, I don’t need them to be together to ship them and be grateful for what we did witness in the past - that’s why making the down memory lane posts still makes happy, because those moments and those memories will always be there no matter what happens from now on, and that’s why Camren will always be real to me.

I really don't want Clarke to be an outsider to the group when they all come down. All 7 of them were together for 6 years so they'll probably be even more tight-knit and closer to each other than Clarke is.. i hope the writers can pull off this time jump thing

I think you need to remember that Clarke has ALWAYS kind of been an outsider. Bellamy was the man with the bond to the people. 

She was the rich princess in season 1, and she won them over. Season 2 had her mostly separated taking care of them from a distance. Season 3 had them divided in distance and alliance. Season 4 had her ‘leading’ but also held apart, divided by lists and science experiments and hard decisions.

For all that Bellamy is the rebel king, Clarke is a loner. She cares and she is devoted, but the only one she REALLY belonged with, at least after season 1, is Bellamy. Her bonding has been very distant with all the delinquents since season 1. 

I think they’ll be building something new together. 

Dan Howell or Phil Lester?

What I don’t get is why people will choose one or the other then hate on the one they didn’t choose? Like, Dan is amazing, he’s funny, he’s a total nerd, and he’s just so beautiful inside and out. Then there’s Phil, our ray of sunshine. He’s sweet, adorable, and completes the Howlester duo. Alone, both are amazing, wonderful, together, they’re a force to be reckoned with. How can one even think of hating on one or the other? Like, yes, you can have a favourite, hell, mine is Phil,  but I still love Dan with all my heart. Both deserve the world, and this hate they’re getting isn’t giving them that. Idk, I just don’t like the idea of one getting hated on while the other gets showered with love. And I know not everyone does this, and I thank you for that, really, but those who are always choosing one and then talking down on the other, just remember, they’re people too. And if there’s one thing in this world I don’t want to see, its seeing these two beautiful men hurt because of one person’s thoughtless actions or words.

clever-girl98  asked:

Hi I love your Wish By Spirit And If Yes. One thing that always pops into my head though, the Whitebeard Pirates? How they kidnapped Ace until he agreed to join them? I kinda want them to do that to Sabo....just take him. When the RA asks for him back their just like "No. This is what happens when you don't take care of your toys, they get taken away." And Sabo just being so much happier cause he's around Ace all of the time, I mean he prob tried to escape for a while but No he's one of them now

Ahhhh I’m so glad you like Wish by Spirit! Thank you, that’s so kind of you to say! haha, that’s a hilarious thought, I love that thought of the Whitebeards running away with Sabo over their shoulders going “na na na~”!


“I’m just here for a few days,” Sabo tells them, and Whitebeard laughs.

“Of course, son,” he says. “You’re always welcome here!”

Halfway around, Sabo stops and turns back because that’s not quite right. “I am?” he asks.

“Course you are!” Whitebeard booms at him. “All my sons can come and go as they please.”

That’s really not right. “I’m not yours,” he points out.

An arm drops over his shoulder and a familiar, warm weight leans into his back. “You kinda are,” Ace points out.

“I’m really not,” Sabo retorts. “I have a job and a life and everything.”

“And we’d never take you away from that,” Whitebeard tells him with an implacable kind of gentleness. “But our home is yours.”

“It’s too late now,” Ace says, really loudly and still right in his ear. “You’re already family.”

That’s a loaded word if ever there was one, and Sabo shrugs Ace off, perhaps a bit sharper than he meant to. “I don’t need family,” he says, loading the word with bitterness. “I’m not anyone’s son.”

Ace wraps himself around Sabo’s back again, offering comfort without clinging. “Neither was I,” he murmurs in Sabo’s ear, “but they took me anyway.”

“I can’t afford–” Sabo starts, and then he makes the mistake of meeting Whitebeard’s eyes.

“We aren’t asking anything of you, son,” Whitebeard says. “And we never will. But we’ll be here, always, and we’re yours to claim if you want it.”

That’s not fair–it’s not fair. “You can’t give me a choice,” Sabo says, and it comes out higher and faster than he’d meant it to. “Don’t–you can’t just do that.”

He doesn’t get choices. No one gives him choices. If he wants something, he has to choose it for himself and then fight for it, tooth and claw, like he did for Ace and Luffy. Like he did for his position in the Army. Nobody gets handed things in this world, especially not things as nice as family.

“You can’t seriously think–” Sabo says, waving the arm that Ace isn’t pinning. “You can’t just offer someone unconditional acceptance like–like it’s an invitation to dinner!”

“Why not?” Whitebeard asks, genuinely curious.

Ace scoots sideways to lean on his shoulder instead of across his back. “You’re not winning this one,” he tells Sabo. “Seriously. They got me.”

Which is a valid point, really, but Sabo’s not prepared to let this go without a fight. “I’m not yours,” he tells Whitebeard, because if there’s one thing he is, it’s stubborn.

“That’s fine,” Whitebeard says, and at the same time Ace grins at Sabo and adds, “not yet.”

Look, I really do like the way Korrasami’s being written in the comics. I really do and I feel like this is the comic that might finally bring me some peace in this fandom, but I also do really hope it’s not always Korra doing the insensitive thing or the wrong thing or the thing that needs apologizing for. Even if Asami’s telling her it’s okay or comforting her.

I want to see Asami do some wrong shit, too. I want to see Korra scold her for things, too, or tell her how it is when Asami does things she’s not supposed to.

Like, I want Korra to be the one to give advice every once and while. Korra knows a lot of things Asami doesn’t based on her experiences. Just like Asami knows things Korra doesn’t. My biggest complaint about Asami is just generally that she always is so perfect. She always makes the right decision or does the right thing in just about any situation.

All I’m saying is that I don’t always want it to be Korra fucking up in the relationship, tbh. I want to see Asami fuck up and not necessarily have a good enough excuse/justification/reason for it. Because we all fuck up. All of us. I just really hope Mike shows us a side where Korra’s the one being responsible and not the one needing to do all the learning in this relationship.

Hello! I read a fic a while back about dan and phil being in college, and being roommates. Dan was really short and phil was tall and always putting things on the top shelf, because dan walked around the place they lived wearing only a shirt, and he had to climb on things to get what he needed to reach (so when he climbed up to get whatever he wanted phil would see his bum) I remember it ended with smut, but I don't remember what it's called.. I tried looking for it, but couldn't find it.

Zenith And Nadir - Cute short 5'3 Dan doesn’t wear anything but a big knee length t shirt to bed. His uni roommate Phil is 6'3 and Dan thinks he is a jerk because he refuses to help him get stuff off their high shelves, little does he know it’s because Phil knows the higher he reaches up the more his shirt raises at the back which means the more of his cute bare butt he gets to see…

Hi! I wanted to start watching Kamen Rider but i just don't know where to start! (On a previous post you said Kamen Rider Ex-Aid was a good starting point tho) Any other suggestion? Thanks!

The thing about modern Kamen Rider is that you really can start just about anywhere and not be lost.  What you need is just a good series or a good single movie to get you started.  You could always go with the film that got me on the road to Kamen Rider, 1993′s Kamen Rider ZO.

ZO is a single, stand alone story that’s wrapped up nicely in its run time.  It tells the tale of a young man who was altered by a Scientist to be able to transform into a grasshopper like hero to defend the scientist’s son, who is being targeted by a jealous life-form the doctor created because it wants to force the doctor to complete its evolution into the ultimate form of life.  The effects are fun, the fight scenes well choreographed and the designs for the hero and the monsters are fantastic! Just look at this nightmarish spider monster!

Another good place to start would be with Kamen Rider W from 2009.

I’ve done a much longer write up on this one before (which you can find here) but the short version is that this is one of the best of the recent series.  It’s the tale of a Private Detective named Shotaro and his partner Phillip, who solve cases for people in the fictional city of Fuuto.  Their cases almost inevitably involve creatures called Dopants, which are humans who have used devices known as Gaia memories to gain powers.  When in danger, the two become one with the help of their own Gaia Memories and a belt called the Double Driver which (usually) merges Phillip’s mind into Shotaro’s body making them a single Kamen Rider.  It’s a fun show with a great sense of humor and a really nice introduction to the franchise for a new viewer.

Of course, as I have always maintained, any Kamen Rider show can be someone’s first. That’s kind of the genius of the franchise (and of tokusatsu heroes in general) each season is its own story with its own heroes and its own themes.  The only real constant is a transforming hero with an insect motif (though even that can be violated from time to time i.e. Kamen Rider Amazon) who battles monsters working for an evil organization. So, if any series you’ve read about seems to strike your fancy, give it a shot.  There is a Rider out there for everyone.

Another personal favorite of mine, just as a quick recommendation, is Kamen Rider Fourze.  Space, High School and the overwhelming power of friendship are the themes of this entry and it’s one several of my friends have really loved.

I am sure you’ll find a series that will get you hooked and I wish you the happiest of viewings.  I actually envy people getting into tokusatsu (and especially Kamen Rider) these days.  It’s so much easier to find it than it used to be and the discovery process is part of the joy of what keeps me coming back to the genre over and over again!

anonymous asked:

How do you cook for yourself when you are depressed? I don't have the $$ to do takeout as often as my depression makes me want to, lol. Do you have any simple go-to recipes that are still healthy? I always end up just eating frozen ravioli for a week :(

ha well, I had a day like this today, when I couldn’t really function and at all, we have a fridge full of food that needs to be cooked (not simple dishes) and I just made my gf go downstairs and get takeout (we live above a chinese place) so, yeah. 

but I get the takeout thing! there are many times when I can’t make myself cook but don’t have the money for takeout, so what do you do?

~DEPRESSION MEALS~

 If you’re not allergic, always always always have peanut butter (or another nut butter) on hand to make PB&Js, or just PB sandwiches (or PB - banana). It’s easy, it’s cheap, and if you buy PB you always have it on hand and it’s the most low effort food that still have some nutritional value (protein)

broth!!!!! stock up on chicken or veggie broth. it’s nice if you have some veggies on hand as well, like onions or mushrooms or carrots but you can drink broth with just some seasoning! I recommend low sodium broth (usually <$1.00) and I like to put chopped carrots and onions, or mushrooms and scallions. so easy, and it’s good for you + it’s comforting. Fresh veggies are obv better but if that’s too much effort (which is okay!), then also maybe stock up on frozen carrot slices or s/t. You can put noodles in it too if you want!

rice is another thing that you should just stock up on, it’s pretty low effort and you can do just about anything to it. again, with the frozen veggies like broccoli or whatever, you can make a pretty good, filling meal with very low effort.  

for just slightly more effort, in that you might not just have these ingredients, I recommend shakshuka!!!! it’s the most comforting food and it is so easy to make. I use canned diced tomatoes and season it myself but for a low effort depression meal, you can totally use canned tomato sauce that’s already made. then just heat it in a pan, make little divots for the eggs and cook em up! you can also add canned chickpeas. 

I would also say that if you feel yourself falling into a slump and you have the chance/foresight, make a big pot/dish of something to eat throughout the week. I recommend this broccoli and cheese casserole, which you can freeze & eat whenever, or I can get you my gf’s chicken soup recipe because it can fix almost any problem tbh

Basically the best thing to do is stock up on these cheap pantry items so you don’t have to worry about it when the time comes! hope you’re doing okay, love <3
