(this is not real life. these are not pictures of me. I am 25 years old and a woman and passionate about politics and fanfiction and, as far as you are concerned, I only exist online.)

I was thinking about this last night while going through the My Mad Fat Diary playlist on Spotify, and thining about how many of those songs I had on cd or on tape - and how difficult and ultimately expensive it was for me to get new music and keep myself up to date, while now I only need to do a Spotify search and if something isn’t on there, well, it probably is on youtube. I wonder whether the more intense relationship I had with music back then was just typical teen behavior, or if the fact that I had to put so much effort in it made a difference, too.

"FEELS" HAS BEEN A LEGIT TERM SINCE AT LEAST 1782:

The Duchess, by Amanda Foreman.

Georgiana, Duchess of Devonshire, really wrote a real letter to her mother complaining about the feels in 1782.

I love everything.

No, Carnivale (Mardi Gras) is not observed as a National Holiday across the United States. We do have Mardi Gras celebrations primarily in the southern US along the Gulf Coast, but it's truly more of a spectacle to watch than to get dressed up and participate in. In those areas you MIGHT find school children being dismissed from school for events, but they don't usually (in my experience) get dressed up. Just the performers and musicians wear costumes. Everyone else drinks. B)

Thanks :) I suspected it kind of worked like that but I wondered whether it was celebrated in some region other than Louisiana.

For the record - Carnival isn’t a holiday in Italy either, but it’s pretty normal for elementary schools and kindergartens to host a costume party for the kids during the last week, if not exactly on Fat Tuesday. Some towns also host a street parade, with floats and such, but those are almost always on Sundays during the month leading up to the end of Carnival. That would be more like Mardi Gras re: the audience/paraders divide except that kids almost always dress up, and while a minority, grownups doing so aren’t seen as odd either - though if you are an adult chances are that if you want to celebrate Carnival in some way you’ll go to a theme party. Or you can do like my friends and I did and take a day off to hit the bars in Venice as we do in the rest of the year, except in costume, lol XD

I had no idea what you were talking about with your first post asking how well know “Carnivale” is in the U.S. (nor did the meme pic above it make any sense to me) — but yeah, Mardi Gras definitely happens, though it was never celebrated in school, as far as I remember. It’s actually more for adults, as another excuse to get out and party on a weeknight (or to eat the king cake and wear multi-colored beads), and to go to New Orleans if they can for the big parade.  Actually, it does have some degree of respectability/recognition, because I just met with my therapist this morning, and she told me that this past week she was out until 3 or 4 in the morning, in New Orleans, flinging out beads in the parade. :)

Also, I have friends in the Midwest (Wisconsin and Missouri) who were definitely celebrating or acknowledging it, so it’s not just in the southern U.S. anymore.  But it’s not known as Carnivale.

Lol, it seems like it’s hapened a bit of what went on with Halloween over here - it was definitely just a thing I saw in the movies during my childhood and even my teens, but it has gained popularity over the last fifteen years or so as yet another chance to throw a party, though sometimes there are also small kids who go trick or treatin’. Globalization, man!

Yeah!  That’s one of my favorite things about online international friends, the chance to compare cultural differences. :) One of my best friends used to be a girl in New Zealand, and it was so funny realizing that her “fringe” was my “bangs,” etc.

Let me make something clear:

Enjoying things you like is NOT WASTING YOUR LIFE.  Enjoying things is the exact opposite of wasting your life.  I don’t care if what you like to do is stare at digital clocks or ceiling fans.  Immersing yourself in your interests cannot be measured in value.

Forcing yourself to become a blank slate is torture.  0 out of 10 stars, would not recommend.
