    I use KISS launcher and let it do its job.

    Specifically, it can sort apps by Frequently Used/Recently Used at the same time, that way my most used apps are always on my home page, while the rest are only a few key presses away.

    And it let's me put my favorite apps at the bottom on the screen.

    I haven't read a "Build Your Own X" book (yet), but is something that I would like to do in the future™. According to the orange site, it's obvious that these books are the endeavor of a single person—interpret that as you wish.

    Just sharing this new release in case anyone else is interested.

    What frustrates me the most about Menslib is that it is very anti-action. It doesn't have concrete goals, or try to reach out to people outside the subreddit. They just discuss articles in an arm-chair academic way about how masculinity needs to be redefined, but masculinity doesn't need to be redefined because it can be anything, but if masculinity can be anything then nothing is masculine, but people should be able to decide what masculinity means for then, but most people need guidelines in life so we need to redefine what masculinity means, but we don't need to redefine masculinity because... And someone in the thread will complain about how nothing is changing, or at least not fast enough. Granted, is not fair to expect much from a subreddit, but it is weird when people inside and outside of the subreddit call it a "movement".

    I wish they would at least organize some online events outside the subreddit.

  7. Comment on Loneliness results from an isolating society, not individual failures to pursue connection in ~health.mental

    In a hyper-individualistic society where we’re constantly told to exercise personal responsibility, it’s not surprising that we are told to manage our emotions this way [contact a friend]. And for those who can’t self-manage, and for whom mental healthcare is either unaffordable or undesirable, there’s life coaching to pull us out of our rut.

    In the midst of what has been characterized as a “loneliness epidemic” in American society, even friendship is being commodified and outsourced to the market.

    The liberal media will instruct you to manage your emotions, and the life-coaching industry will sell you a product to help you manage your life, conservative media will focus on a different but familiar bogeyman [...] the decline of “the family.”

    When it comes to underlying structural factors that have caused changes in our “old-fashioned patterns,” the analysis stays relatively superficial [...] “wealth drives us toward solitude.” This makes loneliness seem a bit inevitable—an unfortunate side effect of human progress—and if something is seen as inevitable, how likely are you to propose major structural changes to address it?

    These problems are not individual-level problems. Changing them requires policy and political will. Simply put, we have to create an entirely different society which prioritizes human social life along with human and ecological well-being. Doing this requires ending the prioritization of private profit in our society.

    Was this the car?. I remember a concept that used 6 small wheels to get into a parking slot, but I couldn't find it in this Wikipedia article.

    I feel extremely frustrated with therapy. I got diagnosed with Avoidant Personality Disorder several years ago, but every therapist seems to overlook the diagnosis. I understand why they don't want to pathologist a patient, but at the same time, maybe is worth investigating why some people find underwhelming to just get out of the house.

    Why can't the professionals up their game and communicate if they aren't a good match? Why is it left to the individual seeking help to make a professional assessment if the therapist is a good fit?

    I'm writing this because I'm at a point in life where I'm completely stuck. My two previous therapists always emphasized thinking about the life I want but imagining myself achieving anything seems impossible, especially when some days feel impossible. But at this point, I don't know what else is there to do.
