Re: Peach Harmonics and the I.S. (Kid Anthem)

feeling: trapped

living at home with mom is weighing on me. rents are selling the house and i've been keeping everything in top shape, while taking care of the dog during showings. lately her shouting has been about me not being helpful enough -- really unfortunate she feels this way.

i bought a vaporizer to kill the smell of weed, which it did, but sometimes there is a trace smell even when using it outside - it's completely gone by the time the house is shown - it also helps me sleep at night and not get hospitalized - but it doesn't stop her from waking me up to yell about it. she was even okay with weed recently before her life became more complicated. it's like she's grasping at straws to find an issue with me since becoming tidier. last night she came home from work - i was trying to sleep - 20mins later the dog (blind) pees on the floor. i hear her yell from downstairs about how that's my fault, but no thank you for the half dozen times i took him out earlier in the day.

now i have to remember to wear headphones around the house to keep her from picking fights with me. the worst part is she then resents me more for not talking to her. it's not a wonder where my low self esteem comes from.

Re: Peach Harmonics and the I.S. (Kid Anthem)

I often feel the same with my mom, even living 600 km away. I don't have a good solution. The idea with headphones is totally creative , but.....

Just hugs.

edit: what helped me a little bit is the realization that the problem is not in me but in her. There is no way that I could ever satisfy my mom.

True or false:

If a clock were large enough, in one full turn of its hands the universe could age to its death.

Re: Peach Harmonics and the I.S. (Kid Anthem)

I've found meditation to be expansive over time with practice. At this current moment, I am of belief that at a point of centering myself, I'm able to let my mind roam free-range without paying much attention - retaining the value of being centered while ever present thoughts work themselves out without concerning me. It feels rewarding in a way that is energetic and also soothing and catabolic, while also feeling as though I'm floating upside-down rotating in cerebral dimensions.

I think online poker players can naturally relate to this. After a tiring session, it's natural to sit back and relax and not think about anything for a minute while things decompress. It wouldn't be possible to fit this in the 5-minute MTT window because that would interfere with getting high.

Re: Peach Harmonics and the I.S. (Kid Anthem)

Hold'em with computer assistance as a bonus, or used a set number of times per match, could be a thing in the future. An example could be shown via heads up SNG. Each player, on a single postflop street, may one time activate the GTO switch and receive a solution for their hand. The challenge becomes employing it early in the match, or hoping to still be contesting later when it would be more valuable, or knowing your opponent could option to use it directly after you before the river, and of course picking spots where it has any value at all! (e.g. when your opponent is not planning to fold to any bet.)


Eta - Dnegs may opine if he wishes -- instead of raising rake to improve game quality, how about offering GTO-solve-tokens to players in proportion to how much they lose?

Re: Peach Harmonics and the I.S. (Kid Anthem)

This blog is like, a collection of attempts to cope within a realm of altered states written not very well. I don't feel it serves an outward purpose and am pressing it out of existence.







Let the rain
Wash away
All the pain of
Yesterday
