Oh, well, if you want. I was just going to say hi to people and ask how they were and so forth. Which is basically all I used to do. Feel like I'm probably missing something. If you want to do something else, I guess that's OK, too.
Hello. I believe I talked to a Moony a few times. Does seem Moony was a popular name so I suspect there were several, but anyway. Not sure if you suspect me of pranking, but if so you're free to be forgetful if you like.
How have you been?
Moony is a very popular name.
It would be unfair to suspect you of anything since we have just met. Pranks can be very ingenuitive but often there's a very sad and painful story behind them. I guess that's why I don't often like them when it comes down to it.
I can hose to be forgetful? Like deleting bad files on a computer? That would be very practical but I'm not sure how to do that. What I can do is try to not give too much attention to bad things. For the sake of myself and others.
I have beeen waiting for a job since January and it was to fall through now in May but… it turned out it was only a prank. Here's hoping that their next promise of a job isn't yet another prank.>>391768
I haven't read it.
Everyone has a bad time once in a while. Old people like me and Tracer can think back on them, put our cigars in our mouths, stir our cognac, smile and think of them as only memories.
But for young people who are still building themselves up, bad times can be a great hindrance. Because they are currently shaping the very foundations of the universe and what they do or don't is super important. I think we should try to make sure that young people have a good time.

Right. Of course in the book they have…you know…magic. Although I was thinking – I could keep a journal, and in that you can choose what you record. And although you may not be able to change the memories themselves, you have some control over what you access when you review the journal. Sometimes I think I don't have many friends, but perhaps it's more that I don't remember all the friends I have, or might have, especially considering how much I talk to people online.
>I have beeen waiting for a job since January and it was to fall through now in May but… it turned out it was only a prank. Here's hoping that their next promise of a job isn't yet another prank.
Sorry to hear that. What kind of job? Dosen't seem very…professional…to be making a job offer as a prank.
>But for young people who are still building themselves up, bad times can be a great hindrance.
I agree. I think some adversity is good, but too much makes people shut down. And yeah, when younger, your capacity to take some kinds of adversity is less, so getting hurt can be easier. On the other hand, some things are easier to recover from when young – stuff can heal faster.
I do want to say, I like your Fluttershy pictures, Moony.
Attention is magical yes. A shrinking or enlargement spell to be more specifik.
I'm not sure. They ran out of money. Let's hope my goverment put their money to good use from now on and don't invest it into yet more pranks.
I hope that people are healed fast from all the bad things so they can get back at living the good life.
Your Fluttershy pictures are nice as well, Flower. I shall download them now.
Yeah, had to find the old Fluttershy chan folder. :)
Hope a job with money behind it turns up. Never have been much of a fan of job searching myself. I want to work with electronics or computers, but currently stock shelves, so I may eventually start the process again. But I'm sorta lazy, too.>>391772
Well, if efchan.net logs them and you have access to those logs, it's probably in there. Unless you have a more interesting way to get them.
Speaking of getting a name, you dropped yours.
You'll need to specify what "It" is.
Oh, yeah, sorry. Still Flower. It being an IP Trace. Assuming you don't have admin access to efchan, otherwise it's trivial.
Only handle I've used on the chans. Was thinking maybe someone would remember me, but if not that's fine, too.
Anyway, need to go to sleep now. Hope you all have a nice day.
Another day we can create new memories.
Oh hey, I remember you.
If you're looking for something similar in atmosphere to olde Lunachan, I would suggest https://ponyville.us/pony/
Hello! I guess I am looking for something similar. I usually just Facebook, but few are able to respond with depth there, and my FB becomes something of a journal broadcast into the void. Might be nice to have other options.
How have you been?
Seems I've posted in a way to receive some slightly defensive responses. Perhaps I was not sufficiently welcoming. At any rate, I have no desire to be where I'm not wanted in general. Normally I don't seek people to talk to at all, but I read something sad and felt motivated.
Oh, sure. Can't think of any harm in linking my real name to the online handle.https://www.facebook.com/hannah.leitheiser
Although I hope in saying 'few are able to respond with depth,' that I'm not being critical. I've been sorta serial-reading obscure books and pulling quotes out of them, and I don't really expect most to be able to link up with that stuff very often.
Do you plan to finish it?
People who feel the need to prove to themselves that they are not idiots sais it works.
I don't know if I'm going to finish. Professionalism and the world of academia rub me a bit the wrong way. I'm a bit too much of a free spirit to take their rules and authorities very seriously, and that makes people upset, and I don't like to make people upset. So I don't know.
How about you? What do you think of university?
I need rules and authorities to get things done. But as I said earlier I'll see if I can get my one year job and get back into the habbit of actually doing anything.
Maybe you can find other ways to prove to yourself that you are smart.
>I need rules and authorities to get things done.
Yeah, I don't think I get things done either way. :p Although I guess I do respect authorities when they pay me. I have a pretty good working-class work ethic.
Hope the job works out.
>to prove to yourself that you are smart
I think that smartness is something for the humans to obsess over. Who's smart? Who's educated? Who gets to decide what science says? Who get to publish?
I once dreamed of being a physicist. Thought maybe all my little social quirks could be overlooked and I'd be with like minds. But now, professional science looks like a social club, just like any other human social club. Gotta pull the right strings and make the right people like you. I tend to always be on the outskirts of such clubs. Very few minds are like mine.
But maybe it's OK. Humans scientists might look down on uneducated Flower, but I can still read books and play pretend scientist on my own, and maybe someday I'll attract a few like-minds. :)
Still get a twinge of jealousy when I meet people on the professional path. But perhaps that will fade in time.
Are you on a professional path?
The laws of physics doesn't care about your social quirks or how socially adapted you are.
Physicists are problem solvers so I understand it can feel hard if you are among people who want to see only the problems.
I haven't done anything for a good many years now. Lived my dreams and though life through. So now I stand where it doesn't matter if I do nothing or if I spend all my time with a profession. So sure. A profession sounds like a tempting adventure.
Thank you for talking to me, Moony. I sense a lot of joy in you. Almost makes me feel guilty talking to you, for worry I might take it from others you could be talking to.
Yes, truth, in its most objective sense, doesn't mind which groups I fit into.
I suppose I've lived my dreams, too. This book I've read hit me pretty hard, and I've been reflecting on my life and my memories. It's been a bit more online than I might like, and it usually feels a struggle to find many others of what I call 'my kind,' but it really has been a very blessed life. I've stumbled into a lot of good fortune.
I'm glad you're in a place of freedom, Moony. Hope you get a great job, whether professional or working-class. :)
No idea who you are but hi
no idea who you are but hi
Hello, Czarina. How are you?>>391899
Suppose that's how you make baby ponies.>>391919
I don't think anyone really knows me, and I suppose I could have figured that out on my own by reviewing names, but I was in a social mood so I used the social method. My mood is returning to normal now, for better or worse. But anyway, glad to have met some new ponies.
