IDK, you might get one or two loads out of it before it catches your home on fire.
Yeah. Chances are anyone selling one that cheap knows there's something wrong with it.

On the topic of washing machines, I think my dad has finally completely borked the door on our frontloader (remember I said he's obsessed with the laundry and washes clothes every day?).

Well, I'm not entirely sure what happened but our washer and dryer was only ever a pretty tight fit in there. They can be stacked by my mother didn't want them stacked. So when you open or close the door to that room, the edge of the door only clears the washer by a tiny bit.

Well, at least that's how it used to be. Over time, I guess the washer walked itself forward just slightly because now you have to turn the doorknob to make the door miss the plastic frame of the washer door. Maybe you can guess where this is going? One fine day, I found a large crack in the plastic of the washer door frame. I am not sure whether my dad grazed the plastic with the door and cracked it or he may have had the washer door open and accidentally slammed the room door against it trying to close it from the inside.

Whatever the case, I taped the plastic crack and told them they needed to get the repair dudes out here before things got worse. The washer weighs a ton and I cant move it or else I'd have moved it back a bit.

They never got the repair dudes out here and now it's getting worse. I think my dad definitely must have done something else to it because now the door is wobbling. Which is really bad on a frontloader. I told them they're gonna end up flooding the place if they don't get it fixed. They're still messing around with gorilla tape. This won't end well.

I haven't been into my email address since I let my tutor know I was dropping out of college.

Only yesterday I finally put away my washing from the last time I posted on here that I'd done it. It's just been sitting in the floor in a big pile since then. Yesterday I just felt I really needed something to help me mentally make myself do it. But got it done in the end. Just got to keep it all in its now designated places.

I don't have enough room for everything that is in my room so slowly sorting through stuff. Picked out some clothes yesterday that I'm never going to wear; it's tricky this because my mind is like but I might wear this and this haha. I haven't worn one item for 18 years but one day I might wear it 🤣
haha i thought the washing was somehow going to make you check your email or something, i kept reading expecting some item of clothing would make you think ''ah! Email" :LOL:

For the last two weeks, I’ve been trying to wipe away an annoying black mark on my iPad screen, but it never went away, even if I scratched it harder. I started thinking it must be stuck under the glass screen protector. I just realised that it’s a flying bird in the new picture I chose as my wallpaper on New Year’s Day. :) That explains why I can’t clean it off my screen.

Aww, that's very cute and funny, honey. 😊 😘

I've gotten my truck mostly fixed. Had a mechanic change the fuel pump because I thought it would be too much of a pain without a car lift. It was still running poorly after I got it back and only getting like 5mpg. So my Google research led me to change the fuel pressure regulator and o2 sensor.

Got the fuel pressure regulator changed easily with YouTube videos. And that made it run much better and got the gas mileage back to normal. Which unfortunately is like 12mpg, but still much better than 5mpg. I struggled with the o2 sensor for like an hour and realized I needed a special socket. I'd only watched the YouTube up to the point they showed the location, so I went back and saw that. So went and bought one at Autozone.

Changing that made no difference. It still has some weird hesitation at 60+ MPH. I guess my next steps will be plugs, wires, and distributor cap. But when I was checking the air filter the hood stuck shut and now I can't open it. So now that's an obstacle to doing anything else. And since it seems to be leaking coolant it's kind of an emergency that I get it open soon. I guess if it comes down to it I'll just use a crowbar on it and buy another hood from a junkyard.

I've also figured out that it's the fuel pump on my work car that's out. So I'm trying to decide if I should attempt changing that. I bought a jack and jack stands, so I'm kind of committed at this point.

Went to see my friends at the book market yesterday. I really feel like I'm a part of that community - which is sort of strange for me having isolated myself so much. I need to push myself to go more often. And they're finally starting to understand about my bipolar disorder - they don't seem to mind at all. I need to stop being so hard on myself.

That reminds me. My eyebrows get itchy a lot. Then, I scratch them and notice dandruff falling out. 🤣
I have exactly the same problem. Or at least I do sometimes. It used to be really bad. My eyebrows are solid black, which made it very embarassing. You're not going to miss white flakes in black eyebrows. :LOL:

White flakes don't show up good in my eyebrows but I can just see them falling down like snow when I scratch them. 🤣
