Dear 100 Hour Board,

Do any of the writers have hobbies or interests that you hope no one will discover? For me it's fan fictions. Not a stereotypical consumer of such literature, I would be mortified if anyone finds out that I read and write corny fan fictions. There is nothing I love more than an old fashioned, melodramatic love story featuring a pair of star-crossed lovers forever separated by fate. That or a story where the lovers overcome all odds but only to face death together, usually taking the form of an apocalyptic event such as an asteroid or the Death Star.

Dear Veloci,

I honestly can't think of any such hobbies or interests. I'm pretty much already as nerdy as they come (I majored in math, I like playing D&D, I know a greater percentage of the history of Middle Earth than actual Earth, I listen to educational podcasts for fun, I watch a ton of anime... you get the picture).

Sorry I can't be a source of commiseration.



Dear Physics Raptor, 


Also, not that it's any secret really, but trashy dramatic TV shows (like Riverdale, truly garbage) are my guilty pleasure. I also watch nearly every new Netflix original movie they make. They're all mostly bad... but I can't help it!




Dear Velociraptor,

I truly love really trashy, dramatic TV shows. I've watched every single episode of Grey's Anatomy and will continue to watch it no matter how much longer it drags on or how many ridiculously implausible things happen to the hospital. I also *sometimes* watch The Bachelor/Bachelorette, and Keeping Up With the Kardashians. I don't know what it is about me that causes this, but I just can't get enough of the drama.



Dear PR,

Web comics. While I'm at it, I might as well recommend a comic for y'all to enjoy: have fun. (Those who know me in real life, please don't judge me.)

Dear Raptor,

I watched a Korean Youtube channel that grooms fluffy dogs... They're so relaxing and they bring me such great joy!

I google my feelings. I don't think I could handle someone seeing my search history and how seriously I take everything I read on Psychology Today
