Tell me a short story from your life.
Anything mundane, exciting, nostalgia, emotional. Literally anything as long as it's a vaguely happy one.

Met a girl after lot of nice online chatting, was so tired because of a sleepless night so she invited me to take a nap with her. It was so sweet and comfy.

Can't tell if it's just remnants of addiction or what. But now I'm working nights again and miss browsing imageboards and discord bros. We had a lock on the obscure gaming niche.

One day, I walked into a snack bar, thinking I had some extra change to spend. As I entered, I asked for a croquette and when I pulled my out wallet I noticed that I didn't have enough coins. Just then, a little old lady eating at the back of the snack bar tells the attendant to put the croquette on her tab. I got my croquette and thanked her for her generosity. It was a berry small act, but I still feel warm inside when I remember that day.

Good luck Anon. I'd suggest you go all in with your wifey, since you're already committed there.

That's a kind story. Good for her.
>>1133 (OP) 

At one time I had the opportunity to serve in the Russian army, then I defended my PhD thesis and now I work in science and also teach at a university. Many of my colleagues are very surprised when they learn about my military background, because in Russia scientists are exempt from military recruitment.

I understand, despite feeling a bit weird there is a strong dreamy vibe in this video.
>Sorry if it wasn't comfy
It is ! Just that delicate creepy comfy vibe like being lost in a weird dream. Also the Ballad of Fallen Angels really fits it.

TOURNAMENT INFO

-If final player count is below 26 players, the event will be a Best of 3, Double Elimination contest. Otherwise, it will be a Best of 3, Single Elimination contest.
-Use autopunch as a host when forwarding ports is impossible. Try to mention that it's used in the thread in case of connection failures - for some players, autopunch may simply not work. Link for non-modpack games here - https://github.com/delthas/autopunch
-Streamer is likely to be autistic, please put up with him.
-Take it easy.

TOURNAMENT PROTOCOL

From previous tournaments, there are some things that we've learned regarding the setup. Therefore, all participants are asked to get a couple things ready for when something inevitably goes wrong.

1. OTHER PLAYER DIDN'T SAVE REPLAYS

As spectating is unreliable at best, it's best to automatically save replays (enable in options). After the match, one of the players must upload the replays (found in Hisoutensoku\replay) and then give strmfag the link. This will let everyone see your matches on strm.

Heya /comfy/. I want to hear your discoveries and experiences on the numerous adjustments you made to your life to make it as comfy as it can be. It can even be plans for future comfiness. I want to see it all. It doesn't even matter if someone else posted about a similar experience. I want to read as much as you feel comfortable sharing. It doesn't matter how small, since even the smallest change can yield a net positive.

Sometimes, I just become too complacent in uncomfy stuff and assume it can't be helped until I see someone set an example. I have difficulty letting myself be comfy due to personal reasons and as a consequence, I do nothing.

Being comfy isn't just about doing nothing, but it's also about going out of your way to do stuff to be comfy. I'd love for this thread to be a helpful resource into achieving the comfy mindset and serve as a source of inspiration, so share away!

To start, here's a bunch of experiences that I'd like to share.

I always liked Logitech keyboards, but the keycaps they come with are pretty shoddy. The letters washed off when I cleaned them. They even peeled away and stuck to my fingers after some light use. To top it off, I'd have to fork over more money for replacements that likely would do the same. It always stressed me out. I did a little investigation and found out that there are different types of materials used for keycaps. ABS, PBT, and pudding keycaps from what I remember. 90% of keyboards these days come with ABS keycaps and Logitech was no different. Basically, ABS keycaps are the cheapest type and they're thinner, but they're decently quiet for typing. PBT keycaps usually have better ink and sometimes even letters engraved into the material, but they're thicker which means they might produce a heavier thonk sound when you type on them. Pudding keycaps are the best of PBT and ABS combined, in my opinion. The very top is PBT which makes it very durable, and the letters don't get worn off, but the sides are ABS and not inked, which still keeps the quieter typing experience of an ABS keycap. Now, most Logitech keyboards have their unique switches that the keycaps would have to be attached to, and finding keycaps for those switches is a bit tricky, but I was able to find a keyboard from them that used those common cherry switches. I ordered that one and some pudding keycaps in my favorite colors and voila, I now have a comfy keyboard that looks aesthetically pleasing, functions well, doesn't feel greasy after a day, and doesn't fall apart after some soap and water!

Regarding outfits, I decided to embrace wearing oversized sweatshirts about 2 sizes bigger than what I am. For both loungewear and when I'm out and about. Since I like to present myself as a bit dressier nowadays, I just toss a plain-colored collared dress shirt underneath it and I get the style and comfiness all at the same time. The oversized nature of each sweatshirt is perfectly comfortable enough to lounge around in on its own. I can tuck my knees under it to keep my legs warm. It's also big enough to be thrown over some actual clothes without feeling a bit tight. They add an accent color to my outfits since I wear mostly black and white, and it also generally gives me an excuse to wear some vibrant, yet soothing colors I love without it being too much. Efficiency!

And the last one for now since I'd like to avoid blogposting: Shaving is no longer something I loathe. I thought my skin was just extra sensitive to shaving, so I just lived with razor bumps, nicks, redness from irritation, etc. Turns out, I wasn't preparing myself for a shave as well as I should've been. I thought just shaving wet in the shower was enough. I picked up a much newer safety razor that was appraised for being gentle to sensitive skin, switched over to a different brand of razor blades, and started using actual shave butter instead of using my 2-in-1 shampoo as a substitute. My eyes no longer burn and turn red from the 2-in-1 and to top it off, shaving has never been faster and more therapeutic. Most importantly, it's now a comfy experience.

I do have plans to pick up one of those scented shower steamers so shaving and showering is even more comfy. I think I'll try those out sometime next month and give an update here, and maybe ramble some more about more of my experiences after I read some posts.

>Burpees were always fun to do.
Now that you mention it, I did have knee pain the first few times I did burpees.  I learned quickly that your knees have to be aligned with your ankles the same as in regular squats.  I can see why that would be a problem if you've had an injury.

>Does it happen on its own, or do you purposefully hone your energy to accomplish that?
There's a sense of richness that arises from engaging in the content that I've seen fit to archive.  Audiobooks, classical music and such.  To spend time like this is to spend it with the greatest minds of history, as they say.  To so immerse oneself in beautiful things for a week or more, uninterrupted by the inanities of modern life has a profound effect.

There's also the contagion of negativity, the awareness of which is easy to lose when online habitually.  It's not just people being overtly vicious, but also desperate, grasping.  Being on the internet seems to come with a whole ball of assumptions about life, and seeing how people behave after being offline for awhile is very strange.  Like they're hypnotized, acting out instructions rather than acting of their own will.

I've started doing yoga once a week. The lady who teaches it is very nice, but the classes are brutal, I'm talking very active almost aerobic yoga, and she usually goes like 10 or 15 minutes over the timeslot, and it's usually very warm and kind of crowded. Despite all the uncomfortable features it becomes /comfy/ and that level of, I don't know, radical acceptance(?) makes everything in my life more comfy.
maybe it sounds very boring, but constantly cleaning my home makes me very comfy, even the mere act of cleaning can be very relaxing. the best part is when you finish the cleaning part and start relaxing making a warm drink and listening an album or just doing in the PC.

I have a rule where I ban certain thoughts at night so I can allow myself to relax and unwind. Concerns about tomorrow and the future, things that anger me, un/comfy/ thought, ect. Unless I'm actually doing something about it that night, they are set aside and I say to myself "I can think and deal with this later". This practice to me is like mental PJ's.

Tell me your dreams, I can do an analysis on them

I used to record my dreams and analyze them myself, but I started on medication not too long ago which seems to make them all nightmares. So I try my best to forget them these days.

The last one I remember was me in a room with my father. He was training me to throw better, but I wasn't sure why. He kept on getting me to drill this one particular motion, where I was to throw an object out of a window in my old house I lived at as a kid and let it get lost in the bushes. Later the police arrived and he gave me the object to throw as they entered my house. In that moment I realize he wanted me to hide evidence, probably drugs. I felt disappointed in him, and as if I had never really known him at all.

This is a weird one considering that I don't get on with my father, and he is maybe the person most opposed to drug use in my life. Not that I even do anything beyond weed myself, and that's only about twice a year.

Nice, I don't remember having seen those in Bulgaria but I will look closely next time I visit. I'll ask my gf which went to Turkey if she's aware of that, I'm sure she'll enjoy the idea :)

I'm still thinking about leaving [current country] to go in Bulgaria as I fell so in love with this country and things here tend to go worse everyday and we no longer even have the pleasure of dreaming of a serene future. Also I'm getting sicker and sicker about my compatriots.
I basically just change out of my work clothes and sit down at the computer for the rest of the night . I'm pretty much stay there other than eating or going to the bathroom until I'm ready for bed. I like to have some baked sweets late at night too on occasion.
chocolate, food, quality time on the computer and mostly opioids of all kind

The first thing I do when I get home is to change my clothes for my "home outfit".
This is important for me because it allows me to mark a frontier between the outside world and my comfy den. This is an old habit from a time I was living in a big city and not wanting to bring the outside dirt and sadness inherent in that kind of environment into my home.
Now I live in the country but I have kept this ritual.

What's your favorite "home outfit" /comfy/ ?
I generally put some old jogging pants, old t-shirts or sweaters depending of the season. I also have a warm bathrobe I like wearing after a good shower and staying naked underneath. Also I never wear underpants, they're not comfy for staying at home.
I'm always barefoot, sometimes with socks when I feel a little bit cold.

In general, people here just put on their pyjamas just before bedtime, or simply go to bed in their underwear. I guess it depends if they're used to showering at the end of the day too?

What I was thinking about is simply placing a \b before and after the string, and hope that javascript's word boundary matching is good enough, but the filters right now don't even use regexes.

Yeah, that's why I wrote I'm not completely sure what is the good approach. On the other hand, when you post, you probably don't want the replacements to be ignored just because you forgot that you're still logged in. But if it works differently when posting and editing, that's super weird.

Good thinking. I'm hoping that Junkuchan will step up with a real /shelter/ board soon. It's relatively-neutral, and AFAICT from the anon/shelter/ bunkers thread, he'd be open to the idea. Cheers.
