I honestly haven't put any effort in gardening this chili plant, I just placed the seeds in the pot with dirt and this how it turned out a few weeks later. It's pleasuring seeing it growing day by day and im looking forward eating the chilli once its red.
It has such incredible calmness to it..

What are the small things that gives you some joy in this 'life'?


admiring my creations, especially my weapons


Plants are always calming. I have some basil and bellpepper growing myself. What helps give me my small pleasures is writing poetry and reading. Writing is very relaxing, reading depends too much on the book but when you get one you like its awesome. Hope your chili grows big and tasty wiz!


ah that sounds nice. I really love basil in food, you use it for that purpose?

I also enjoy writing and reading, what kind of writing/reading you enjoy? Im currently switching between Carl Jung and Eckart Tolle.

What kind of creations?


consoles and weapons mostly, things that took years of building skills to do


Yeah I use it in food. It's so good! I like philosophy, history, and anything that you could call AnPrim or wiz-tier I really enjoy. Big on French writers too, really love Louis Fernindand Celine and Georges Perec. A large chunk of my books are French lol. I'm about to start on Ligotti's "Conspiracy Against the Human Race", I just finished "The Book of Disquiet". Disquiet was beautiful, one of the best books I've read. Extremely relatable for us all Pessoa was a wiz.


Those two authors sparked a new interest, never heard of them. I own a hardcover of 'The Book Of Disquiet', however i haven't managed to get through it just yet. I decided to read it when i was at my lowest and I allowed my self to accept another downpath.. I went through some pages while writing this and now i want to finish it, especially when you described it as beautiful. When it comes to French authors, i havent read to many but among my favorite is Édovard Leve and his book 'Suicide'. His written in a very simplistic one line sentence, yet unique. It's written as the reader was the one committed the suicide.


90% of people used to be farmers before the past couple hundred years or so. I think it's more common to enjoy gardening than most people think.


never thought about that. do you think farming for so long has implanted something in us that doing it is rewarding on a primitive level.

Yeah definitely finish it, Pessoa is the man. I will have to read "Suicide" next, that simple style sounds good. You can easily be too wordy in literature. I've wrote a book of poetry over the past 2 years that I'm about to publish this summer. Will share it here first!! Another good small pleasure, a nice cup of tea. Hot tea. I like irish breakfast and earl grey myself

Cleaning. Feels pretty good to make a room spotless. I don't quite like the process of it itself but that moment when I finish it and lean in a corner to have a good view and the entire room looks fresh and clean. Pretty good.


tfw when you create the most technically advanced society in the history of man
and people would rather play stardew valley, animal crossing and farm simulator

Surprised no-one has mentioned their penis


Yes, I think there was an evolutionary selection for people who enjoyed growing things. They tended to survive better because they had more food and could have more kids therefore the genetic predisposition has been passed down strongly. Many of the things we enjoy I think we enjoy because it imparted some sort of evolutionary advantage. Take long distance running for example. It makes little sense for people to just run for no reason and yet millions of people around the world do it all the time because they enjoy it. Why would they enjoy it? Because their cave-man ancestors evolved a genetic quirk to make them enjoy it and then those ancestors were much better at running down food and reproduced more so the trait was passed down strongly. Whether an ancient evolutionary adaption like running or a relatively recent one like farming, any time a mutation causes enjoyment in some sort of activity that ends up being wildly beneficial, it will end up being expressed widely in the population. I think farming was definitely a big enough change in how humans survive to leave a genetic impact on our psyche and in fact there is some research out there showing gardening can have beneficial effects on people's mental health and well-being. We have been disconnected from both the hunt and now the fields as well, we are trying to adapt to being wage slaves but I question if any of us should want to make that adaptation.


because nobody here takes joy in something *that* small


Long walks.

A cup of fine tea with a little something sweet puts me in a better mood no matter how bad my day is.


Yeah. Makes me sad that tea time never caught on in America.


Has to do with cultural history and certain associations.
Country preferred coffee instead, which was more of a unpleasant utility drink to increase productivity rather then a pleasant beverage that happened to have positive side effects.

Only relatively recently (the past 30 or so years) has it become fashionable to make coffee that isn't imo noxious as far as flavor. Even then it is still tied to it being a drink of utility culturally speaking so rituals similar to tea time haven't spread.


Tea is not pleasant. It tastes like hot leaf water. The only reason it became popular is because it was expensive.


Taste pretty good to me, especially with a little sugar or honey to add a complimentary sweetness.
Though a well brewed tea doesn't need it and is quite nice on it's own. Especially the white and green teas.


Wine isn't pleasant either the first time you try it. But as you continue developing your taste and slowly work your way up the quality ladder, every drop becomes a joy. Same with tea.


People who aren't around nature often develop serious mental health issues. Humans value fertile soil because it means food can be grown.


Tea isn't a single drink. You can find a huge variety of flavours in all sorts of teas.


I’ve unironically thought about getting into gardening to calm myself and relieve the loneliness (sounds retarded I know) but I live in a very small flat. Any advice on how to start?


Watch Karate Kid

trop a rocka, Donald Trump's tea


playing my keyboard


drinking alcohol of any kind, eating popcorn, lounging with my cat on my belly, watering plants, sleeping and napping, sitting on the porch rocking chair, doing dishes, finding leftovers in the fridge, finding leftover pizza upstairs

basicslly just thought of the moments during the day when in happy


It doesn't need be hard, just get some soil and some seeds. Mix them together and make sure it both get sun and water daily. Thats all. I was cooking dinner and use chilli as an ingredients and simple planted the seeds.

but make sure to watch karate kid, this part is vital.


Cleaning (dont mention that canadian quack please)


It seems somehow you have managed to keep the structural integrity of your neurological pathways despite existing in the 21st century. I genuinely commend you and slightly envy your not burnt out receptors.

In the span of less than 100 years due to all the ground breaking discoveries in chemistry and theoretical physics man kind has opened up a literal “pandoras box” of drugs/chemicals which have effects on the human brain. Our entire planet is now laced with never before seen molecules of all sorts. The food supply, tap water, drugs from the doctors or even over the counter, in all likely hood even if you aren’t living in a dense city the air might still have something foreign in it wherever you are.

All I’m trying to say is that in my opinion a lot of mental health based suffering can be attributed to a chemical imbalance in the brain. As someone who grew up being over-stimulated with tv/vidya/recreational substances and is prone to major depression genetically I truly wish my brain would fire hits of dopamine off for the types of things you just listed off but especially >doing dishes

Keep on keeping on my wizza and don’t forget, you can’t miss what you never had.


>chemicals in the water


You must think very highly of humans to think we've made so many new chemicals and spread them so far.


he's canadian? that figures


He's not a quack. He's fucking smart. I wish I could become a millionaire telling trannies and succubi to pound sand while telling crabs to clean their rooms. Fucking jealous.


>telling trannies and succubi to pound sand
He never did that though. He even said that he'd respect a tranny's pronouns if they wanted to be called by that. His issue was with the government making it illegal to call people by the wrong pronouns.


>pound sand
never heard of that saying before, it's supposedly an american saying. neat

>SMALL things.

Oh, it's small alright.

I just like it, wiz. Last night I saw a less depressing dead sight.


Have you tried dissecting them? It's really interesting to see how the internal organs behave as they dessicate.


upping the ante on that edge


How is that edgy? High schoolers dissect fetal pigs in school all the time. Scientists dissect animals too. It's completely straight-edge.


Same. I've also been observing this habit of mine getting more fleshed-out and intensive during the last two or three years, probably to a needless degree even. I know do a complete clean-up twice a week, otherwise the faintest dirt, dust or body hair just annoy me.


context is everything


If the only thing edgy about it is the context then the act itself has no intrinsic edginess. The only edginess that exists is the edginess that you have attached to it. Since you alone have birthed this edginess through your act of judgment, I am innocent of any edginess for I have birthed exactly 0 edginess through my acts.


Something tells me you are being retarded on purpose as bait to derail the thread.


Fan-films that are better than the official versions.


Isn't that the fundamental principle of Stoicism kek


No, it is more like a really shitty version of a postmodernist deconstruction, which in its self aims to isolate words from context to destroy meaning.


You're the one who said context gives things meaning.

video games are cool

meeting people who are just as insane as me is awesome

seeing a 2d loli smile brings me unspeakable joy

music validates me and my struggles

so, essentially, being autistic as fuck has saved me from dying!


Made a ham sandwich for dinner. Sourdough, cheddar, lettuce, tomato, onion, mayo and mustard. Wasn't aware just how much onions really elevate a sandwich to the next level.


I hate this


Playing my favorite game (Cluedo)


cooking and eating




Reading books even of normalfaggot creation because their fake morality buttthurt can help find interesting historical figures like this guy :https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manuel_Santa_Cruz_Loidi he even had a flag with a skull very cool the attempts of the moralfag in the book to make him look evil only make him more fun to imagine a priest removing norms left and right and regardless of gender unlike average white Knight soldiers lol


even though i am retarded and have a hard time doing it due to bad memory. i retain nothing


If you retain nothing then it could easily be argued that you aren't actually learning anything.


I built a raised pond and recently I stocked it with 50 goldfish and 6-7 koi. I enjoy just going out there and watching them swim about. Feeding them is fun too.



Do you mean expand?
You've triggered them.


Imagine how pleasant it could be to not learn anything after a certain point. You would be able to read a book over and over again with only a vague sense of familiarity. Take biology as an example. What if every day you wanted to learn about mushrooms or Pre-Cambrian organisms and you could feel the same joy and wonder at how strange life is? Yes, it would be difficult at first to emotionally grasp that one was retarded, but once you accepted the fact, you could plan ahead to keep enjoying everything life throws at you. The world would truly be your oyster.


Go get a full frontal lobotomy if you want to live like that.

There are small and faint, but still noticeable moments of joy when my ears catch an interesting song for the first time, or after having forgotten about it

Internet radio, the twitch music category, and my YouTube playlists are good friends

I don't do it for fun but I remember passing this fox in the car at 5am.
I thought I saw it move as I drove past. I walked back to it after getting home but it was definetly dead. I stood there looking at it for a little while, it was sad.
I remember seeing a mating pair of foxes that had both been hit and died next to eachother. That bummed me out too.


Why? Was he "supposed" to get raped into it taking your logic into account?


Took me far too long to realize that small pleasures and victories in life are just as important as the big pleasures like degree, car, house, etc. This was highlighted recently when I finally figured out how to repair a small hole in a floor tile, an ugly clip had been visible for years, but I coincidently saw some putty that was the same color as the tile and had a brainwave. Pleased with it, best improvement I had done in a long time.

Just because you don't touch succubus doesn't mean you can't have kids through machines.

Take the surrogacy pill.


My first batch of baby shrimp have now grown up to the point where you can start to see eggs forming inside of them. I started with 10 shrimp about a year ago and now I have several times that number at least.


Is this a moneymaking venture?


lol, nah. They live in a 1 gallon bowl on a shelf next to my chair. They are about the size and shape of a cooked long grained piece of basmati rice. They are just pets for my entertainment. They mostly live off the algae and bacteria growing in the tank. Supposedly as time goes on I should feed them less and less so that they don't overpopulate and just create a stable colony. I have only fed them about 6-8 times since I got them and I never feed them more than a piece of food as big as one of them is. Now I just do it every few months but they are still breeding quite rapidly so I guess there is plenty of bacteria and algae to eat in there. It's kind of miraculous just how easy it is. As long as they get enough light for the algae to grow you basically don't have to do anything. The algae can produce enough oxygen for them to live off of so you can even keep it sealed to avoid moisture loss. I have a piece of seran wrap over the top of the bowl that is loosely fitting. I think it is a good combo of moisture retention and gas exchange because I can see gaps where air can get in but most of the moisture condensates on the film and falls back into the tank. If I had a timer for my light it would be completely maintenance free but since I live in my room I don't find it hard to turn on and off the light every day.


>What are the small things that gives you some joy in this 'life'?
when there is new Yu-Gi-Oh! cards revealed


I feel like The Book of Disquiet is the quintessential wizardly philosophical musings


Writing. But not like writing stories or anything fancy just writing itself. I have a decent collection of nice fountain pens and just the act of having the pen leave a line of ink on paper has always made me happy ever sence a kid. Don't understand why.


I need to find the pic but I came across roadkill fish on my island. Not even like from a flood or near the shore. Show how a fish got run over in a parking lot and dried out.


I kinda feel the same way about clicky mechanical keyboards.
The feel and sound of using it is satisfying in of it's self to me.


tiny solar panel in the window and LED grow lights.



> to calm myself and relieve the loneliness

Check out Bonsai. It's the whole point of it and it looks beautiful.


> calm myself and relieve the loneliness

I think you're expecting too much out of gardening. Unless you have a shit ton of plants there's not really much to do.


Vulgar normalfart. Plants are the only friend a druid needs, and one is often enough.


ahh yes, the tidiness emits motivation and a mood of deep focus as well. Very comfy to sleep in a clean room.


idk looks kinda stupid
