For Netflix - Cobra Kai, I Am A Killer, a couple movies, and some stanp up stuff.
For reading - The Unexpected Joy of Being Sober and The Power of Now. More self-help stuff, than fiction.
What sort of videos have you been watching, or writing have you been doing?
Interesting! And I used to watch stand-up comedy with my family.
It's so good that you've been reading books on self-help.
By the way, I plan on getting myself a copy of Lili Reinhart's book of poetry which is titled Swimming Lessons: Poems.
Sorts of videos I've been viewing: art tutorials, cooking tutorials, some other educational stuff, real-life stories, some vlogs, interviews, behind the scenes stuff, trailers, TV clips, movie clips, short films, pornography, music videos, memes, and pranks.
Plus, like I've mentioned before, I watch a new show called Filthy Rich on FOX. Corey Cott (Casey Cott's brother) is in it. ( You know Casey is the one who plays Kevin on Riverdale. )
I've been writing down my thoughts, feelings, opinions and perception regarding various cases and topics, as well as writing about my experiences.
Now I'm getting started on writing a new piece of poetry. It will be about sunshine. ☀️ The sunshine lifts my spirits every time I see it, and I miss it during cloudy days and rainy days. Plus, I'm looking into creating an illustration to go with my sunshine poem.

Yup! What I need especially during a time like this.
I believe any old passion of yours may find its way back to you someday. So hopefully you'll eventually find the motivation to be creative and write new music.
Thanks! And, it's cool that you've been cooking dinner every night and finding joy in cooking up awesome meals. I get blissful whenever I cook something that satisfies the taste buds.
I'm glad to hear that everyone is doing alright. How sweet that your mom is loving her new granddaughter! I think so too. And, it's great that Keith survived a heart attack and is taking extra good care of himself.
I really hope and pray that you won't get locked up.
Yeah, seems like it. 2020 hasn't been the best year for me either.
haha That gif tho! I did a lot of running ... ... from my problems! That's for sure.
I am sure after everything blows over, I will use the emotional baggage as fuel for my creativity.
Yea, tonight I made fried potatoes and onions with smoked kielbasa. Mm Pure fat!
I hope so too, Rikki. Thank you. Whatever the case, I will walk throught it and be okay.
Yeah, lol @ that gif. Cool, and so did I. hehe
I'm optimistic about that too.
Mmm... that meal sounds super tasty! I love fried potatoes and ONIONS! And I would like to try smoked kielbasa.
Last night my dad ordered me a philly cheesesteak sandwich, french fries, and for dessert white cake with vanilla frosting and colorful sprinkles.
You're welcome, Matt. And I like your positivity.

Do you ever just wish so bad that time travel was a thing? I want a do-over for my 30s. haha
I am so happy to know that you are back, it's great!! ... I would also wish a time machine and eliminate at a stroke this asphyxiating and terrifying 2020 in many aspects of all our lives ... I feel that our whole world such and how we knew it, it changed in a matter of 6 months, and I'm still waiting for everything to return to relative normality .
I have been reading your messages on the thread, and I am happy to know that very soon you will return to work full time ... I also know that you are in a transitional house living with other guys, I know that it can be difficult to lose a little of your privacy , although it is also a way to have people of our own age with whom we can share thoughts, talk ... I just hope you are well, and like I told you that nothing bad happens, I know that everything will work out, sweetie... you will see .
P.S. I loved that way of expressing the feeling that this 2020 causes you ... You have a way of saying how you feel that I really adore it, when I grow up (lol) I want to be like you, always trying to see the positive side of everything ... Te quiero mucho, cariño! .
As a youth, I refrained from exposing my attraction to females. I couldn't help fearing that many people might vilify me and do me dirty, and how badly it could affect my mental health. And so, I felt it was safer to only be open about my attraction to males.
ALSO: Back on the old Sprousefreaks site, I wanted other members to know I'm bi, but I was hesitant about disclosing it. I thought I was the only bi female in the Sprouse fandom. And, I worried that I might get a ton of backlash after revealing my sexuality.
Since I see you guys as my good friends and I confide in you all, I'll also share this part of my past:
When I was younger, I had a sole preference for females. I was extremely mesmerized by the bombshell physique. I experienced eroticism and orgasms whenever I saw a bombshell or more fully nude, topless, bottomless or scantily clad in one or more pictures, magazines, videos or movies. I often spent some of my leisure time fantasizing about female erotica. I didn't even dream of being romantically involved with a man, as I wasn't attracted to the male physique at the time. And I had been so secretive about all this.
As I grew older, I became a lot more attracted to males than I ever was before, while still being attracted to females. I've been attracted to males with handsome faces, slender to average build physique, and little to zero body hair. I even developed the hots for males with long hair, and even males who wear makeup and cross-dress. I also started fantasizing about male erotica during my leisure time. And, like I mentioned before, I definitely wasn't so secretive about my attraction to males.
There were times when I felt so alone and so ashamed of my sexuality. I've felt so weird and so awkward about having the hots for females. I've also felt alien about being sexually attracted to two genders. Back then, I didn't know who I could connect with in this instance. Besides, I was being raised a Catholic. And so, I even tried to convert to heterosexuality.
But, as time passed, I learned these important lessons: • I didn't choose to be bisexual, I was only born this way. • Bisexuality is not a phase, nor is it a sin. • Bisexuality is real and valid. • Bisexual people exist and are valid. • Bisexual rights are human rights. • I should be happy with myself and proud of who I am, not ashamed of how anyone else sees me. • I've got the right and deserve to live my life authentically. • Love has no gender. • Love is love. • I may be fortunate enough to meet other bisexuals, other members of the LGBTQ+ community, and even cisgender/heterosexual people who are LGBTQ+ supporters.
Now I feel so fortunate, blessed and grateful to have met other bisexuals, other members of the LGBTQ+ community, and of course cisgender/heterosexual people who are LGBTQ+ supporters. 😁
Today I'm a proud bisexual woman. 💗💜💙
I'm genuinely happy for Lili that she's finally found the courage to publicly come out as bisexual. Plus, it's great that she has pride in her bisexuality. 😀
I'm sure she's become an even greater inspiration to other bisexual females all around the world. ✨
FUN FACT: She did a liplock with Camila Mendes on Riverdale. This was during Episode 1 of Season 1, during the scene in which Betty and Veronica try out for the River Vixens (Riverdale High's cheerleading team). This Beronica kiss is one of my favorite scenes! 😍🥰
SIDE NOTE: I would never invalidate someone's declaration or story when they've finally come out of the closet or their shell. It had taken them so much time to find the courage to come out and open up. Just because they had never publicly shown their like or love for or interest or pride in something, doesn't mean they've never been actually into it. They just didn't have the courage to be open about it, fearing how other people might react to it. Nobody likes or wants to get vilified or mistreated, because it makes them feel worthless and miserable. And I've been there.
I am glad that Lili has decided to tell her truth, without fear of anything, and feels totally free to express her sexual orientation.
Likewise, I am proud that you have been able to express how you have felt and what it was for you to discover your bixesuality, I know that people can be cruel, but ... I am glad to know that you have already overcome everything, and you are not afraid to say it openly, as you well said ... Thanks for sharing with all of us, Rikki! ... Un beso grande
This is my niece, btw. haha I think she's about 3 or 4 months old now.
WOW!!!! ... Your niece Aurora is beautiful!!! ... maybe you don't know it, although I'm sure if, I love babies, they are such sweet, soft and sensitive, I would spend the day with one between my arms, I hope you have followed my advice, and when you feel a little stressed, if you can, take Aurora in your arms, and all your stress will disappear completely ... The peace that a baby can transmit is unheard of .
She is really adorable, and she looks so cute in her pumpkin costume, I love it ... It sure has stolen your heart completely, right? ... I love you with all my heart, my sweet angel Matt!!!! ... and thank you for sharing her beautiful image .
Good for her and good for you Rikki! Gaining pride can be a hard fight, especially in your youth, but overcoming it all can make you a more humble and meaningful person. I used to think that everything would be okay if the univerve would just answer me and fix its mistake. Now, I realize so much of what I like about myself is wrapped up in having had that experience.
I still prefer males, but sometimes feel I could be bisexual. I did not feel that was an option for me back in 2005, though. The social climate was different then and I do not think my dad would have accepted it. Being gay, however, is like saying it is either this or I'm forced to live a lie. Some people who are more close-minded might understand that a little better. So, I can totally see the complexity that accompanies being bi.
Yeah, that's true. It may take a lot to gain pride in who you are, but it's really worth it - if you've accomplished it, and it's made you a more humble and inspirational person.
During the 1990's and 2000's, I always felt like I was required to be a "normal" girl and I wasn't allowed to be who I am. I wasn't aware of any LGBTQ+ people or supporters in my hometown. Most of the people I knew didn't seem to be the most empathetic people, nor the best people to confide in. And so, I managed to crush on females without showing signs of it.
Last decade was life changing for me. Now I feel so fortunate, blessed and grateful to have come across so many things that have motivated me to show my true colors and my pride in it. And, I'm hopeful that I can inspire others to do the same.
The only males I've got the hots for currently are Rob Raco, Casey Cott, and Corey Cott.
Corey and Casey are brothers, btw. Cott brothers.
Now I feel like I'm mostly into females again. I've been having the hots for quite many females lately. However, I don't check out all of my female eye candy per day, just one or a couple of them per period. I habitually diversify my world.
At the moment, I'm supremely obsessed with Camila Mendes (Veronica Lodge from Riverdale) and Sarah Desjardins (Donna Sweett from Riverdale).
I would love to see Veronica, who is Latina (on the show), hook up with a gal at some point. I'm Latina as well, and if the writers ever actualize bisexual Veronica, I'll have her to look at for Latina/bisexual representation. (Camila Mendes believes Veronica is definitely bisexual, and she really hopes Veronica tries to discover her sexuality. Veronica kissed Betty anyway.)
As much as I want to gush about Choni (Cheryl and Toni) again, I don't feel like I'm in the mood for it right now. I'm just feeling bored with them at the moment. I constantly hold them in my heart though.
(Season 4 ended last May, and Season 5 is scheduled to premiere in this upcoming January. The Riverdale set was closed for six months due to COVID-19, and Season 5 production began last month.)
