  Parenting (Otherwise Known as the "Jesus Give Me Strength" Thread)

Real talk.

It doesn't look like we have a thread like this, and I thought given the obvious trappings that go along with being a parent it could be a good idea to have a place to share advice.

I've got a 6-year old and 3-year old.

For a long while now I've been struggling with being interested in most things I used to enjoy doing. I used to be an avid video game player and rabid devourer of movies. Obviously, the limited amount of time you have + 99% of things I enjoy that aren't kid-oriented makes it much more difficult to invest in such things (unless I want to be a shitty, irresponsible parent).

But even when the time comes where I can finally commit to such things (kids go to sleep, parents watch them for awhile, etc.), I still suffer from not being interested enough to do anything worthwhile with my time. I'll look over my library of content and nothing ever seems to "click" with me; meanwhile, while I'm wasting away at work, I find myself longing to do such things "if only I weren't here."

My question is, for those of you that have already gone through this stage of child rearing... is this normal?

Sometimes I wonder if I'm suffering from some form of depression, or going through my version of a mid-life crisis, but it's admittedly something I have no experience with, so I'd have a very hard time differentiating it between the result of having young children versus suffering from something different.

Any words of wisdom?

My vote is for LOWLIFE.  It's MACHETE by way of PULP FICTION + WAY OF THE GUN. It's an amazing fuck you to ICE and the garbage who exploit Latinos trying to make it to the promised land/believing the American Dream.

If the EUROTRIP thread survived the transition, I couldn't find it. Boy did I enjoy this:

  Comfort Movies

I thought there had been a thread about this around here someplace, but a search yielded nothing, so here goes.

What are some of your go-to comfort movies?  Not your all-time favorite movies (although there may obviously be some overlap), not the films you think are objectively the best you've ever seen, but movies that never fail to lift your spirits.  The ones that just plain make you feel good while watching them.

Here are some that immediately jumped out at me:

- BACK TO THE FUTURE
- RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK
- GHOSTBUSTERS
- YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN
- CLUE
- JAWS
- A CHRISTMAS STORY
- THE PRINCESS BRIDE
- THE INCREDIBLES

I could throw on any of those at any time (well, maybe not A CHRISTMAS STORY!) and I can guarantee my mood will improve dramatically (even if it was already good!).
