I got my laptop back from the shop today. They had to wipe everything and put a new body on it, but it's alive again. It was short notice and I wasn't able to save everything on a backup drive, but I still have most of my music tools, a lot of my internet/imageboard folder, and the desktop background of my waifu that I made. I'm confident I can rebuild.

I have noticed that recently the media has been trying to hype up natural disasters more so than usual and where I live even a simple storm might start calling for them to say there could be a flash flood or tropical depression though it might be the wave of hurricanes that have been coming through that have gotten them a bit paranoid or maybe it's just the way they love to bring out the worst in everything.

Money has run out. I have no food until the end of the month. And if things don't get better, monthly bills will be left unpaid. I'm not the type of guy to love food, but I'm feeling quite hungry already. This hole in the belly feels really awful. I'm afraid of how these next two weeks will be like. And I can't even imagine what will happen if things don't improve by the end of the month.

My mentally abusive, alleged "father" threw a remote control hard at me, this evening. Before that, I said that even his favourite mainstream media outlet SVT has said that basically no migrants have gotten jobs, recently (or "newly arrived" as they creepily are called, here, to explain to Swedes that they are here to forever stay and replace us); either because they haven't been qualified or don't want any, as their article said. He immediately came up with some migrant that had changed tires on his car, the other day, and that he worked "far more effectively" than the others around him. I said I would rather have seen that that job had gone to someone from here (they automatically get jobs as all Nordics now are consider second-grade people, by the state, but he's too unintelligent to get that, despite that it's been said it will be done by those he has voted in). Then when he realized I was right, he as usual started to point out how worthless I am. I pointed out that it's hard to get back to life when you have been harassed to despair by the psychiatry (he, by the way, has several times commended the worst of those psychiatrists and said "he only wanted to help me" and that my life would be good if I had listened (they wanted to commit me, give me ECT and antipsychotics, mainly for wearing "odd clothes" (normal, nowadays), being a vegetarian and wanting to become a farmer)). He said something nasty I can't remember so I said I would be better off dead. He said something like "die then," to which I replied that I actually think I might have breast cancer so maybe I will (I've realized I have faint, wide lumps where they shouldn't be, on my chest, that definitely aren't fat lumps). Then he threw the controller on me and stormed off. Then he returned, saying that if I don't stop being a "fascist" and change my attitude, he will send me out of the house. If he does that, I won't have my only reason of living, anymore; our dog.

I've decided to try to go mute in order to not speak with him. I prayed as hard as I could that he would die, but so far, none of those prayers have been listened to. Just further proof that no good god exists. I'll talk as little as possible with my mom, too, as he feels provoked when I ta

Well.... war is never nice, though. Even if you'd get to kill all who would deserve it, lots of terrible, nightmarish stuff would happen along the way. One can only, well, attempt to pray that it won't be that bad....

Oh, the day after, he acted like nothing had happened, the day before. Even was in a good mood. I'm not sure if he understands how much damage he is doing to me, mentally... and his behaviour is just making me get even more extreme. Of course, he has no idea of deeper views of mine... his view of a "fascist" is someone who doesn't want immigration. Kind of odd how he not once talks about rescuing the persecuted Boer in South Africa or the fact that Poland has taken in lots of *actual* refugees from Ukraine. He just repeats the official EU narrative, like a parrot. It's kind of odd how he's become so politically correct, because before I realized how lied to I have been, throughout the years, he was the one who kept talking about how migrants are a problem. It's almost as if he feels I "stole his thing" so now he needs to think the opposite to what he previously did.

Yes, although their view of me was incorrect. However, I did end up getting free money after getting harassed so badly by the psychiatry.... they ruined my life, so I'm not the slightest bit thankful for it. And I do have an apartment but I hate being there. At least at home, there is our dog and my mom. I really should just get a storage place for the stuff in my apartment and move out.... even if it'd have to be back home. If I'd just stop talking anything political with him, and never responding to anything he says that I disagree with, it should be fine..

Yeah, all artists need to be medicated, in their view. They'd really have loved to "correct" Nikola Tesla, too.

Not him but about war... "Lots of terrible, nightmarish stuff" is already my life. It could get worse with war but not by much and every day I care less.

I feel you anon. My mom is similar to your father, plus she drinks. She doesn't throw stuff at me but she threw a brick into my window once. For me the only thing that works is not talking to her at all and avoid her as much as I can.

>>if I don't stop being a "fascist" and change my attitude, he will send me out of the house

Can he actually do that? I mean what's the law in your country about this and who owns the house, your mom or him? Is your apartment stable / paid for on the long term? If yes, then maybe you should just move and visit your mom and your dog when he is not at home. And before anything else certainly go and see a doctor.

>Well.... war is never nice, though.
Sure, but getting a influenza injection isn't either, but it's best to get it done. And war will really test my limits, I want to know just what I can acheive when pushed.
Nobody really deserves to die, though I sure would like certain groups exterminated, but that doesn't mean they deserve it, it's just what personally think is best and I wouldn't grieve over their removal.

>I'm not sure if he understands how much damage he is doing to me, mentally... and his behaviour is just making me get even more extreme
Yeah, sounds like mine. I've concluded he must be a sort of psycopath, since clearly he is unable to process other's emotions.
Best advice I can give is to just stop talking to him.

Always have the feeling that when I'm looking at someone's eyes in a photograph, they can see me looking at them. They can look at me in their thoughts like I look at them on the photograph or something.
I know it actually doesn't work like that but I can't shake that feeling off.

Also try to act as good as possible (not talking to myself, being carefully hygienic etc) when in front of either an 2D image, figure or doll. So pretty much all the time when I'm in my room (not bathroom/kitchen). Unfortunately not more than that. I would probably get more out of it, if I treated them like real persons (talking to them/feeling close to them) instead of this half-assed way.

Hatred, dread, being watched sounds like schizo.
Acting in specific ways to keep your stuff happy sounds like OCD.
At least it's similar to what I heard from other crazies at psych ward.

Have you gone outside lately? Did something terrible happen? Post it here so the rest of us can learn to avoid similar situations or just to remind people not to go out. No photos please.

Yesterday I went out and numerous strangers attempted to make eye contact with me as I walked down the sidewalk. It was awful, I knew that if I acknowledged their existence there was a risk of further interaction, so I deftly avoided it by looking at other things.

Asuka. I really, really didn't like her on the first viewing of NGE, but when watching EoE I realized that I empathized with her a lot. I guess I developed a feeling of connection to her that I felt with no other character, not even Shinji.

It is said that people you hate generally have traits that you yourself have and subconsciously dislike/deny, thereby hating them is a defence-mechanism to protect your ego.

As I was walking down the street, I passed a group of people, one of whom asked me if I "smoke weed fam". Being talked to by a stranger is bad enough already! I said "n-no thanks" and continued on. This is sadly quite a common occurrence where I live. I hope this post isn't against the rules, sorry if it is.

Aren't most ojou in anime represented as being foreigners though?
>> No. 30580 [Edit]
Right... half the time they're depicted as some sort of european, blonde and all. You've got me stumped...

The more true to life type are most likely the "secret ojou" characters, which appear as any other until the cast visits their place. With Japan being modest and all that seems a bit more likely.
>> No. 30585 [Edit]
Technically yes, they do. I'm relatively sure the ojou-sama laugh comes from the stereotypical French laugh "oh hon hon hon" (Male example; 3D Warning - which is why it's almost invariably a western-looking person. It's also possible this was a common thing decades ago (Female example; Wizard of Oz; 3D Warning - and it just extrapolated from there to represent rich people who look down on others.
You're partially right. A lot of stereotypes are based upon constant anecdotes and a lot of people are quite one-dimensional in their behaviour. Tsunderes are very much a thing in real life, for example.

As a pretty sensitive person, I agree. It's better to be direct than beat around the bush. Sometimes more offensive than to not be direct.

Also it's possible to tell the truth and not be a dick about it, people seem to forget that.

Ever notice how normal people talk, they say things without thinking about it half the time. They say they'll do something, then never do it. Or, they'll say they'll do it but later realize they didn't mean it or it is too much effort and make up some dumb excuse. Like some bullcrap game. They say they like something, they just say it to be part of the conversation. They say they did something, it's half bs. Yeah totally, haha! Think before you speak, people.

Non-normals do this too, so far I've seen. At the very least failed normals.

This one is a dead giveaway for the normaldry gene.
