after seeing a few signs that maybe I've lost a bit of weight over the past couple weeks I decided to weigh myself
I'm currently 30-40 lbs overweight
I really really want to feel comfortable with my body and now that I'm not a kid anymore it's been hard to avoid being more sedentary since I can't "go out to play" with friends, and I don't have sports like soccer, swimming, or track to keep me active every day
I don't need to make any drastic changes but I do need some way to keep myself accountable
just cut out pop because I'm drinking so much of it and the calories add up fast
I've been walking more, but it's giving me horrible blisters everywhere for some reason and my feet have been in sharp pain for the last week or so
also my heels look disgusting lol
for some reason the physical aspect of my last job wasn't really keeping me in shape either
anyway that's what's currently on my mind as I eat an entire package of processed ramen at midnight
I wouldn't drink Coke zero honestly, I've heard that stuff is really ****in bad for you, even moreso than the regular.
If you're looking for exercise that doesn't involve walking, maybe swimming would be good? If you've got a place nearby that's easy to access I've heard it's really good exercise and it's less strain on the body than other stuff
Why is it concerning? Literally every time a new technology comes, or that a piece of machinery starts improving at something, people freak out and start acting like they'll dominate the field or take jobs away. Hell, since its creation to up to this day, a ton of painters complain about photography.I saw a twitter thread earlier about an AI system that can replicate human art very well, and it's a little bit concerning.
Like, I can definitely tell the art is still AI generated because it lacks the nuance that a real artist can give a piece, the AI art looks really, well, souless. But to non-artists this stuff could certainly fool them into thinking a human made the work.
It might not happen right away, maybe not in our lifetime, but I do find myself wondering if AI is going to replace real artists within projects at some point. It's a scary thought.
Well yeah the hope is AI just becomes a tool to streamline the process even more maybe, and I guess a lot of people even now are trying to add it to their workflows for idea generation.Why is it concerning?

I saw the same twitter thread, and honestly; people in art, outta all places, panicking about it kinda makes me roll my eyes a bit. While drawing something pleasant to the eyes is part of what makes art impressive, it's not all that it has for it. Being able to add a concept, being able to transmit a message or feeling through it, being creative... they're all things an AI will hardly ever understand. Most of these modern AIs are trained with other human arts; they can mainly only (somewhat) replicate styles and based on others art, and that's it. Maybe that's why some people feel like it's """soulless""".
Even if the AI eventually learns how to be creative by itself, even if the AI learns how to express feeling by itself; it's THEIR message and feelings. It's its own thing, it isn't stealing anyone's creativity; it isn't stealing anyone's feelings.
Sure, AI might cause changes in multiple fields, but that's more of just another revolution in these artistic industries rather than the "omg artists won't exist anymore!!!" freakout we keep seeing? Like, of course AI might eventually earn its place in, like, automation in an animation studio; but just as another tool to be used, not another competitor.
In the end it feels like the people who feel threatened by it are either the ones who have a very shallow and aesthetic view on art; or just mass-spew out commissions for a quick cash grab, which, sure, it's their business and their lifestyle, so it's understandable. But c'mon, commercial commissioned art has always been meritocratic, with all due respect if people are paying someone because they draw anything for cheap rather than because of the quality of their work then they were going to become obsolete regardless of any AI.
