This is the continuation of my previous journal thread, as I'm not in my 20s any more. Good things in my life: career is OK. Lots of things interest me, mostly intellectual subjects. Improving my fitness through regular calisthenics. Room for improvement: I need to do more activities with visible output: writing, making stuff, and developing social connections. I should find some IRL friendly associates outside of work. That includes dating. My dating life has been completely mediated through dating apps and sites. Not much success recently. When I get a girl's attention, I know what I've gotta do. Mostly. What's my deal with porn? In general, my use of it is mostly a waste of energy. I should be spending that energy in more productive ways. See above. There are specific undesirable effects of porn in sexual matters, I think, and I've written about them before. I'll write more later, as I learn more, and come up with more idle speculation. I'm in for nofap/noporn September. I'll fill this weekend with intellectual stimulation. And try chatting to the Tinder/Bumble matches I have... with an aim to set dates up for next week.
