    The problem is immortality eventually is going to get - not meaning to pun - really old. Every single person you meet you will be alive when they die. While it could be fun for a few hundred years, eventually things would just get very boring.

    As per usual, a whole lot of nada. Just tried to enjoy the three day weekend. I had been dealing with a terrible eye infection for about three weeks, so it was nice to be able to see clearly as Saturday was the last day of the antibiotic eye drops. Not 100% sure it's totally gone, but it's definitely at 95% well.

    I'm not sure I've ever gotten a full night's sleep, at least not without waking up multiple times. I am probably the world's lightest sleeper - to the point my husband has joked a mouse could fart two blocks away and I'd wake up like "what was that?" So I can't really answer that question.

    Most of my issues are my past and the effects it causes well into my 30's.

    I'm alright I guess. Most days feel like a struggle, but it's been like that most of my life.

    Last thing I will say I cooked (not pre-prepared or frozen or too simple to count) would be a chicken stew last week. We ate on the leftovers for a couple days.

    Coffee and hot sauce (obviously not together) - didn't really like either much until I hit my 20's.

    Not really much of anything. Took most of the week to get my arm to stop hurting from the first vaccination shot.

    Yeah, really wishing I could get a few myself. There's one or two people I'd love to invite over.

    Bisexual here....I mostly identify as female despite not really feeling my gender (somewhere around NB).

    I honestly don't like the word queer as it's been used so much as an insult.

    There are hundreds of terms, so there would be a word for it...not sure what it would be as it would be up to how that person wants to identify.

    It's likely bisexuality, but again it depends on how that person wants to identify.

    I'm nearly 35 and been with the same guy since I was 17, so figure I can weigh in - LOL. Honestly a lot of it boiled down to I could not (and cannot) imagine my life without him in it. Just thinking about us breaking up or if something happened to him is enough cause me to break down in tears. For us in particular, I think it helped we had known each other for years before we started dating and were friends first - and we keep the friends first even now. So basically even if we're arguing or ticked at one another, if anything is wrong with either of us, we can put it aside to be there for one another. How much we care about each other supersedes our differences.
