yesterday i learned a lesson i already knew about proprietary software
i plugged in my old iPad and asked it to download some episodes of Behind the Attraction to watch on the plane
then i put it in my bag and eventually boarded. once we got to 10,000 feet, i pulled out my iPad and was greeted with, "Please go to the App Store to update Disney+"
except, of course, i was in the air on a regional jet with no wireless, and i didn't need that update anyway because i just wanted to watch downloaded episodes!
anyway piracy is in every way better and more ethical than using subscription streaming services
venting about cheating / trauma
and ultimately when the bad thing happened last week, tho i missed the care of the past, i had to be my own protector and make the decisions that would keep me safe
it's a wonderful thing to be able to show yourself love
love is just an amazing thing
and i think that's what it all boils down to: i hate cheating bc it's disrespectful to love; there is nothing about it that is loving. And when love is such a source of joy and beauty, why do the opposite?

But how did we get here? Let me explain.
Chasing what's fleeting.
