    Ha, I mean I guess because I work here. 😅 But within that, posting on the boards tends to be the 'have fun and chill' part of my day. Always fun hanging out with y'all.

    A combination of all of those, but probably to feel less alone fits it best.

    Interesting that most folks so far have voted 'to feel less alone'. I wonder if that might take the pressure off supporting others - even the simplest gesture can make people feel less alone. :3
