im in a funk so here’s a thing about my dumb dog.
but yeah, soemtimes i just sing at my dog about how great it is but he gets really fucking paranoid if i dont confirm with him yes, he is still a good dog.
(unless he farts then no, no he’s not)
called in sick and feel like the fucking worst person in the world for it so i’m trying to console myself with the fact that i was actually physically sick so at least i’m not lying
and it’s not working because i still feel fucking worthless.
it’s 5:15 and i can’t sleep and i need to because i have work in the afternoon
and anyway i can’t even decide if i should sleep or if i should die
i’d feel bad about calling to say hey i can’t work today because i want to kill myself
i’m gonna be on a guilt trip right to the end.

More character questions
(I don’t claim things like this are the only or even the best way to develop characters - there’s a lot to be said for putting the list down and just writing them and seeing what happens - but I think they’re interesting, so.)
What skills or abilities do they have outside of their major occupation? How much time and effort do they devote to cultivating these?
How quickly can they pick up new skills? Do they prefer to learn by doing, or study the theory first?
Are they willing to learn new things, generally? Do they try to keep their skills and information up to date? Do they not care? Do they think they already know everything they need?
How persistent are they? When confronted with a difficult task, can they stick with it, or are they more likely to give up?
When something goes wrong, who do they blame (e.g. circumstance, somebody else, a higher power, themself)? How easy or hard is it for them to get back up?
How well do they take care of themself? Is it a priority? Are there areas they neglect?
Can they cook? Do they have specialties or strong preferences? What is their attitude toward food?
Could they fend for themselves in a strange environment? In the wilderness? In a town or country where they don’t know anyone? How well would they find their way around and meet basic needs?
What constitutes luxury for them? What are their biggest indulgences, and how often do they treat themself?
How is their fashion sense? How much time and care do they put into their personal style? Do they have a deep wardrobe, or dress mostly the same from day to day?
How comfortable are they with violence?
How readily do they believe what they’re told? Are they gullible? Skeptical? Do they only trust certain sources, or even just their own experience?
How much do they speak? When they do, are they more likely to choose their words carefully or say the first thing that comes to mind?
Are they honest? (Does it depend on the context?) How good are they at lying or at lying by omission?
How readily do they emote? How much or how well do they think they express emotions?
What are they insecure about?
What are they afraid of? What do they find intimidating?
How do they balance the various aspects of their life? Do they keep work (or school, or whatever else they do) and home life in their own compartments, or do things blur together (maybe they can’t leave work at the office, or one of their hobbies affects the way they look at everything else, or they also repurpose their high-powered battle magics for simple household tasks)?
Do they prefer structure or spontaneity? Do they keep routines reliably or leave their options open? How well do they keep their commitments, or how well can they cope with sudden changes in circumstance?
Do they like people, in general? Do they tend to believe people are good, bad, selfish, altruistic, neutral?
