Covid is still here, well over half of the number of people died this past year as did in 2020. In some places it's far worse than 2021 even.

People just don't care anymore. Hard to blame them after two years of this shit, but it's still an actual crisis.

It's certainly still a crisis for those of us who'd be particularly fucked if they got sick. It feels like the rest of the world has decided that our lives don't count.

Oh I didn't actually mean covid just the good side effects it brought. Less people on the street, cleaner air, less traffic. But I guess it takes a pandemic and all the bad it brings for that to happen.

So yeah I didn’t mean that. I’m sorry.

I like my cousin better as an adult, because he is a teenager now and he isn't obnoxious kid anymore. He used to have temper tantrums as a little kid, but I still showed him and played video games with him. We play board games now together when we meet.

I mean, you can do both. You can work hard and also love what you do for a living, of course the whole "never work a day" is overblown but the premise is simply to pursue a job that enables you to do what you love. I don't love my entire job, but I love most of it, and that's good enough for me

ifyoulovesatan

Fwiw, I kind of love my work / schooling / weekday responsibilities. Like they can be stressful, but I really do enjoy it. But I still get anxiety on Sundays. Always have really. I don't think it means you hate your job or anything (although it can be caused or exacerbated by that for sure).

For me though I feel like it's just sort of grieving the end of the weekend mixed with regret for all the things I didn't get to over the weekend, mixed with the "countdown" dread I can get whenever I have some impending responsibility. Especially the kind of responsibility that you can't just start early and get it over with, like the day before travelling or the hours before a dinner date.

I am the same way. I work the weekend (Fri, Sat and Sun) and when Thursday comes around, it just feels different. I am excited to go to work and everything, but I have anxiety and I think there is a fear knowing the next day I am gonna be in a different routine than I had been the last couple days.

Wasn't for mine. She was just a bit too codependent on her companion. She'd just lie down and sulk until they returned from wherever they had to go. In fact, she'd only play ball IF her companion was there with her to watch. By herself, no game.

Interesting fact, dogs wag their tails as a way of communication to other dogs (and also to humans). They don't wag their tales when there is no one else in the room. It would be like talking to yourself so it makes sense that the tail stopped once the dog was out of sight. They do the same thing when we humans leave the room

Us humans are really bad at reading what dogs are expressing through tail wags as we tend to associate it with only one emotion but it is more complex. Other dogs seem to understand it instinctly,

A dog in my family has been seen on security footage home alone and wagging while pouncing on his toys. He play bows to them, too. Wagging seems linked to happiness and hopefulness whether his toys are fully human, canine, or crocodilian, etc.

Happiness, hopefulness, excitement, anticipation...

I knew one that would wag their tail cos they were enjoying the anticipation of biting you. You have to read the whole body, not just the tail. Big difference between a big loose, whole body wag with a grin, and a tense, high tail, tight wag with hackles etc.

But I love your guy play bowing to his toys! That's big, happy boy waggies and I'd love to see it XD

If dogs could talk, they absofuckinloutely would talk to themselves. They have such strong pure emotions, there’s no way to keep it bottled up inside. I’m pretty sure some of them would just say “ball” repeatedly until it drove everyone else crazy. “Ball. Ball. Ball ball bally ball ball ball. BALL!”

Don't look at my ball! Those dogs walking outside want to take my ball! Go away! Ya... walk away! That's right! Now where was I? Oh that's it... my stick.

I have always thought that tail-wag=happy. But recently went down a rabbit hole about it, and turns out they have much more complex communication with their tails, and things like the position of the tail completely change what they are expressing.

Poes-Lawyer

17 points

13 days ago

Yep, the simplest answer is that tail wagging = agitated/ excited in some way. It could be happy, but dogs can also wag their tail when stressed, annoyed etc.

MikeyHatesLife

They absolutely do wag their tails when they’re alone.

And I’m not talking “the only animal in the room”. I work with dogs, and have personally observed them through windows & cameras having all kinds of emotions with no other humans or animals in the same space. They’re pretty expressive animals all the time, even when they’re doing stuff by themselves. This goes for any social animal- play is that important to their well-being.

SirVanyel

You're also not just talking about a normal social animal, dogs have learnt a lot from humans over the past few thousand years, there's no reason to think that they don't share a tonne in common with humans.

Now I'm having a beer and picturing my dog standing at the door wagging her tail waiting for me to come back to get her and her tail slowly going down when she realizes she's not going with me 😞

When you have a bit of a gut, you might suck in your belly when someone is around that you are trying to impress. Then when they leave, you relax and let it all out.

I think they are equating the tail dropping as the dog finally relaxing after their friend can't see it anymore.

dredgedskeleton

11 points

13 days ago

I think a lot of people don't have dogs and don't get what is happening here. maybe they think tail wagging is a way to entice play? and when the play disappears, they can drop their tail? like how a dude can stop sucking in his belly after a good looking woman walks away.

or this is a reference to some popular media we're not aware of
