That's quite ambitious. It takes a lot of time and effort everyday to thoroughly learn topics (ballpark estimate: ~1 hr/day average for 1, 3, 4, 5, and 6 each), but you have a good (and very achievable) list of goals.
I have made a very similar list for myself, and I have so far found it helpful to have an itemized list of goals to meet. That is, it may be easier to break your big goals down into reasonable, achievable specific aims that you can try to achieve one after the other.
In any case, I hope you're successful.

What are some things that really bug you?
Things that genuinely piss you off?

I thought it would be nice to have a thread to vent about any little annoyance, no mater how big or small.
Any and all complains about the world around you are welcome here!

Old one reached bumb limit I think.

This may be an unpopular opinion, but a shit ton of people rush into sterilization way to fast. I sound like some 'you'll change your mind honey' dude because I am. Back then people had to debate over it, talk to people to get info, and really think about the choice. If they got sterilized they were really serious. Now they find /r/childfree circlejerk about how 'doctors are totes wrong', 'they're all wrong about how you'll regret it!', and so on. Even worse the sites average user base is teens so kids are being convinced to make a bad decision by age 18.

People seem to hate walking around here. I just found that I have work colleagues that would drive 2km by road than walk 300m to get to the shops. FFS.

Second going for a walk. Something about leisurely walking around without an aim while everyone else in the world is hurrying to do truly meaningless shit is cleansing and relaxing. It's not good if you live in crime or snow though.

Aside from that, hot tub or massages help temporarily, drinking hot tea, ASMR or sleep hypnosis. And this sounds counter-intuitive, but if I exercise it takes tension and stress out of my body, which in turn helps my ability to relax later.

It's sometimes too bitter for my taste but it's the only thing that I can drink without wanting to throw up.
>> No. 33887 [Edit]
No real preference. I enjoy the taste of most everything but I'm sensitive to the effects of caffeine and alcohol so that takes away my ability to enjoy things fully. For tea and coffee, I prefer it plain/black. For alcohols, I tend to favor liquors.

What kind of tea do you normally drink? You could try steeping more tea at lower temperatures and for a shorter period.

I like coffee
>> No. 34020 [Edit]
Black coffee, maximum strength and bitterness possible. I have hated soda and carbonated drinks since I was a kid, so I don't drink those at all. I used to drink a lot of tea, but at some point I found that it is easier to brew a pot of strong coffee than it is to prepare a similar amount of adequately strong/bitter tea.

Is it weird to have your laptop like this in bed? Like before you go to sleep or something. Not a great drawing but I'm drunk and not an artist either.

I tend to put serveral pillows under my head so my neck doesn't hurt. While I prefer lying down with my laptop like that over using my desktop when I'm tired, I tend to not do it a lot because the area where I place the laptop (so either the chest or bladder area) will just end up hurting a lot.

Use a tablet

I used to, but I go out of my way now to seperate my sleeping area from my entertainment area. They're still in the same room, but the little bit of seperation helps me maintain my sleep routine.

I own a few pillows like the one in this picture. In my opinion, using my laptop in bed with one of these pillows is significantly more comfortable than sitting at a cramped desk. I keep an extra monitor by my bedside in case I want to view anything in higher quality or use an extra screen. Very comfy.

>In 2006, the Wikimedia Foundation shared hosting and bandwidth costs with Wikia, and received some donated office space from Wikia during the fiscal year ending June 30, 200
That's disgusting. It also helps explain why Wikipedia's been deleting a lot of articles on fictional works (no matter how significant).

Sort of a hybrid between the book club and "post something new you learned." Post any interesting essays, articles or prose you've stumbled across on the internet.

It's interesting.

>2.34. In Europe, young girls are always very strictly kept in their houses; in Japan, girls go alone wherever they want, for one or several days, and are not answerable to their parents about that.

In the Hagakure, it says that one should keep their daughter at home never allowing them to even visit a temple and never allowing them to interact with men. That seems quite the opposite to this, maybe common people allowed them to do whatever they wanted but the rich didn't or maybe he says to do this but it was not so common.

The Genetics of Sex Differences in Brain and Behavior
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3030621/
>In this paper, we will review sex differences in brain and behavior that are not due to the action of hormones secreted by the gonads—which has been the dominant mechanism associated with such differences—but from what we term `direct genetic effects.' These are effects that arise from the expression of X and Y genes within non-gonadal cells and result in sex differences in the functions of those cells.

Garage sales, pawn shops, online selling, everything goes so long as it is kept legal.
You can also recommend some good places to sell stuff that others might now know about or share resale knowledge that others might not know. You can also post pictures of what you intend to sell before you it's gone.
