"I am afraid because I can so clearly foresee my own life rotting away of itself, like a leaf that rots without falling, while I pursue my round of existence from day to day."

Yesterday I was sitting in the grass making a flower crown and my hands were sticky from whatever the hell was in the flower stems and suddenly I was six years old again sitting in the backyard weaving flowers together to make a roof for my faerie houses and let me tell you that was something

the fact that lucid dreaming is a skillset we as humans can just like, develop and exercise like any other is WILD to me (pun intended). i was having trouble falling asleep last night, so i just like... induced sleep paralysis and wriggled into a lucid dream. spent the whole time flying around, giving myself sparkly insect wings, and riding a pegasus bc why the hell not. the fact that my brain can spontaneously generate a hyper-realistic simulated reality that i'm then free to hang out in for a bit blows my mind. the fact that i can remember the mundane steps it took to get to this point (learning to induce sleep paralysis, to transition from sleep paralysis to dreaming, developing dream recall, getting consistent enough at lucid dreaming to practice flying, etc) blows my mind. even after years of practice, it still feels like some crazy fantasy novel shit and i can't believe it's just something we can do.

❝ if you sleep any longer, you’re like to miss the war. ❞ @faithgunned

Sleep still clung to the corners of her eyes threatening to pull her under again. For a moment she considered it, the darkness of sleep was certainly welcoming enough. In the end she decided against it pushing herself from the cot with a small scowl not usually found on her face. “Perhaps I want to sleep through the war? she said, voice croaky from sleep. “Perhaps then I won’t have to listen to anymore boring meetings and attack plans.”

The weather is finally nice but I’m starting to suspect Osamu Dazai might be gay..? Or he was a bisexual. It doesn’t really concern to me about his sexuality. It’s just really unusual for a male author to write love poetry toward another man from the perspective of a Japanese woman. I would imagine the author would write a love poem toward a woman if he was cisgender straight. Honestly when I read the quotes, I don’t hear the voice of a woman. I hear a voice of a man lamenting his love toward another man.
The quote “As I listened to Noaji’s words, it became increasingly evident that not a particle of my odor had seeped into the atmosphere around the man I loved. It was not so much shamed that I experienced as the feeling that the actual world was an unfamiliar organism utterly unlike the world of my imagination. I was assailed by the sensation of desolation more intense than anything I had previously known, as if I had abandoned at dusk in autumnal wasteland where no answering sound would ever come, however often I called.”
“Is that, I wonder, what is meant by the pat phrase “disappointed love?” I asked myself if I were doomed to die, numbed by the night dews , alone in the wasteland as the sun dropped completely from sight. My shoulders and chest were fiercely shaken, and I was choked by a dry sobbing.”

Wee boy, I finished reading chapter 4 of The Setting Sun by Osamu Dazai and my favorite quotes so far are:
“Last year nothing happened The year before nothing happened And the year before that nothing happened.”
-----
“This I want to believe implicitly: Man was born for love and revolution.”
-----
“To wait. In our lives we know joy, anger, sorrow and hundred other emotions, but these emotions all together occupy a bare one per cent of our time. The remaining ninety-nine per cent is just living in waiting. I wait in momentary expectation, feeling as though my breasts are being crushed, for the sound in the corridor of the footsteps of happiness. Empty. Oh, life is too painful, the reality that confirms the universal belief that it is best not to be born.” 
-----
He wrote so intricately on the character’s evolving emotions and attitude toward the war. Felt like his wording was like glass, but it can be easily shattered.

every other week I watch a video of mitski performing once more to see you and think it’s sad that no one else has or ever will write anything that good

Planted a Cherry Tree yesterday to accompany the Apple Tree bought for my wife by our neighbour. Planted around 7:30 pm it was a great opportunity to take a couple of photos with the warm glow of the setting sun.
Cherry variety - Prunus avium ‘Sunburst’

i am. CRYING thinking abt chapter 1 komahina rn. like these two get thrown into a crazy fucked up situation and they just hold on to one another for dear life. theyre just inseparable and they like each other so much. they both help calm down the other. just let me live in my own world where no murders happen and these two stay by each other's side and theyre just so close and they trust each other and they help each other uuuugghhghghgg
anon you get it!!!!!!! it’s the trust and softness and the finding comfort in one person amidst all the bizarre stressful information being thrown at you!!!!! gahhh i miss early komahina being each other’s rocks.............

Mr. Dazai writes so eloquently. I feel like I’m reading butter on bread in a solemn poem. The story is also really engaging, I’m already halfway through the book. The perspective comes from Japanese women but honestly, I feel like he’s writing about himself and his views. I’m just curious why he hasn’t written a biography instead but I guess it might be too painful since he struggled with depression. Or maybe the stigmatization of it would shun him?
Either way, I think I may finish this before “No Longer Human” arrives this weekend. I found out why the book was sold out for several weeks. It seems like Pewdiepie, a YouTube gamer, shared to his audience that he enjoyed Dazai’s work. I’m surprised Pewdiepie read it because I only remember him as the dude who screams at his computer screen while raging at a video game lol. But he shared that he reads a lot of psychological and philosophical books.
Anyway, I’m kinda bummed to find the news that the writer took his life...it’s always sad to see the most talented artist or writer lived majority of their life struggling with mental illness. Just wished someone helped them when they were alive though. Since they didn’t get sufficient help they need, I feel like many of them express their emotions and thoughts into art and literature.

Home alone for the first time in a while... It's so peaceful. I'm chilling in the dining room, door open, listening to my music and outside noises filtered through my earmuffs... yeah. Sometimes, things are ok.

yesterday at 4am (the Prayer call started) I was already asleep when my father barged into my room quietly As he can and gently woke me up to see him with 2 huge cups of water, he offered me one and got out of my room as fast as he could so he could give my sister the other cup, I love Ramadan.

And I really meant it too!!#like who---?
