I'm thinking of keeping a food section in my house that's for house pests because I don't like killing house pests. I love animals. My budget hasn't allowed it yet, but I'm planning to have a stock of cheese for the mice, biscuits for the cockroaches, and extra food that will attract flies so the spiders can eat. If I give them their own food, maybe they will not wander over to my food.
I hope it works. If it doesn't (which has a high chance of happening since I'm a bit afraid of germs), I'll be sadly using pesticides and mouse traps just like everybody else.
That never happened to me before. Your copycat is disturbing and close to criminal. Don't connect with him anymore in any way. Cut him off now that he knows you only online. I don't mean to scare you, but with that kind of obsession, he might stalk you to your house. Just a realistic warning. Block him.
Same. There is something about spending money that makes me feel like I did something unforgivably bad and that I'm irresponsible. I start to tell myself I'll spend more money like I spent that money. I tell myself I'll soon run out of money. Then I start telling myself I'll be homeless in the near future and will be completely hopeless.
My skincare routine is simple and practical. I use only whatever I need.
During the day, I wash my face and use Vaseline. My nighttime routine takes a longer time to finish. It is at night that I exfoliate my face. I don't exfoliate daily, though. I exfoliate every four days. I also moisturize at night using Nivea. On days when I have acne, I use plain bath soap. I rub it again and again over my pimples. It dries my pimples out and makes my pimples heal faster than usual.
Afterward, when my acne has healed, I apply All Purpose Hydroquinone Cream on my acne scars. Daily application for two weeks removes the scars.
When both acne and scars are gone, I return to my usual skincare routine that consists mainly of Vaseline.
It's a simple routine that maintains my skin, although it has been difficult making my way here. It took a lot of disastrous trial-and-error.
The younger me used to collect in garbage bins for food. No, I didn't collect rejected foods of the rich and ate them. I collected metals and recyclable things, sold them, and used what I earned to buy food. My family was extremely poor.
It may seem like a depressing existence right now, but I was proud of it at that age. I said my job position was "collector." I woke up before sunrise each day and went on my way to work. I computed how much I would earn in a week and a month if I covered a wide area of garbage bins. My days were spent walking from garbage bin to garbage bin in search of things I can sell. Then I rushed at the end of the day to the junk shops to sell my collection.
Afterward, I hurried to the bakery to buy their cheapest bread before they closed. (They usually made their bread cheaper right before closing time.)
My work was a satisfying work and it kept my mind too occupied to focus on the depression of being poor. I was somehow happy.
