What happened? Have you accomplished anything today?

I slept under a tree, came home and started making appropriate folders and RSS feeds for all the new shows airing today.

I've been without power for the last 38 hours after one hell of a storm knocked it out. Moved through the area quickly, but it was a violent storm. Was sleeping when it it, thought the world was ending from how bad it looked with the constant lightning flashes.

The 100+ degree heatwave feels downright murderous without my fans or the AC. Been reading The Moon Is A Harsh Mistress and napping in order to pass the time, but with how widespread the damage is and how unreliable the local power company is I have a feeling that it might be a few more days. Hell, they even said it would be a week for them to get everyone's lights back on. Damn it, I much would have rather dealt with actually not having internet like I thought would happen weeks ago over this. I was prepared for that, and this came out of nowhere. Damn it all.

It's summer. I want to die.

That really sucked. I always nap to pass the time too.

Watched some anime, slept a lot, listened to an album by some people on another imageboard I visit, and slept some more. I wonder how the rest of the day will go.
>> No. 15701 [Edit]
Got a spiffy new keyboard and mouse today, and worked out the kinks of getting connected to a private server for a game. All in all I'm feeling pretty accomplished.

>>15689
Damn, I heard about that storm, my heart goes out to you. We're pretty blackout prone up here, but we've never had one that bad, and never in the middle of a fucking heatwave. Hope it gets fixed soon.
>> No. 15702 [Edit]
Today I watched all the new anime that aired, and helped typeset some subtitles for one of them. I started smoking again too...talk about hypocritical, but I forgot how damn well it makes you concentrate. Ran out of my schizophrenia medication and I've been seeing shit all day, so I've been going for random walks to stop it. Found some real nice flowers while out walking earlier, and put them in my kitchen.

Summer really murders NEETs, huh?

I wish I had AC so bad...

Slept a lot, posted on imageboards, played a few games of DOTA and watched some anime. I found out that a video rental store in my town recently got a job offering when the manager called me on the phone and I'm going in for an interview tomorrow. Pretty nervous, but if I have to do it, I suppose I will...

Today I read many ideas about social networks to try and get argumentation and base as to why I would hate them, and I stumbled upon the number of nine hundred billion people on Facebook. I had no idea the situation was that bad.

>nine hundred billion people on Facebook
are they pulling in registrations from parallel universes or something

Had a very lazy day. Went for a short walk in the morning. Worked on some writings, watched a lot of anime, and played a VN on PSP. Have work tomorrow, so I suppose I should try sleeping for once too.

I had an argument with my mom. I told her I want to move out to a little 2.5x2.5m storage room downtown which belonged to our grandfather. It's located in a office building, and it has access to a shared toilet as well as electricity and wi-fi. She said lol no, it doesn't even have a bed. I showed her my sleeping bag. She got angry and told me to get real and grow up. Haruhidamn I can't win any arguments against her. I need to get out, but she won't let me.

It may say that, but he now associates pizza with Pizza hut, which is what the product placement is supposed to do, and now that he wants pizza he wants to take his business to Pizza Hut instead of any other pizzeria.

I want pizza,too...
>> No. 15725 [Edit]
>>15724
A lot of the Pizza hut product placement in the past has made me want to get Pizza hut pizza, but then I remember Pizza hut in this country has nothing at all to do with what the product placement is in (japs at least get custom boxes related to the anime) so I just go to papa johns, which I think is better.

Ahh, I broke my mouse.

I was trying to fix my mouse because the wheel wasn't clicking correctly, so I took off the top part, which then cracked the thingy that pushes the buttons for the left and right buttons, and as I tried to set them in correctly, the left one snapped off making the left button completely unusable. Then I took off the plastic thingy and it somehow ended up moving the inside button thingy completely off the board thingy. I didn't mean for this to happen. I just wanted to fix my wheel.

Now it only works if I use my nail to press the tiny left button and give it a smack on the right side for the now retarded left button to work. The wheel works perfectly now, though.

Never mind, the right button doesn't work any more.

WHY AM I SUCH A FAILURE?!

Went in to apply for a job, they told me they'd love to talk with me about it tomorrow. I'll spend the rest of the day reading Evola and Derrida.

"Worked - hate it. Came home, studied Hans-Georg Gadamer, napped. Burned my hand with a cigarette. Saw an awful person (you're just seeing things, remember). Terrifying. Sketched Rakka from Haibane Renmei. Napped again. Had a weird dream - awful. Thought. Forgot to buy more meds. The mind is swarmed with delusions. Why you're a failure: contradicting thoughts and feelings - this is why everyone hates you. Stop bothering. New curtains, practiced sign language (you're so slow).

Yeah you gotta always be careful when disassembling something to fix it. If you don't, you're almost certain to break something. Often its designed in such a way tht you can't even open it apart without breaking something or setting loose some tiny part in some socket.

I'm trying out seamonkey right now, and I don't notice any difference from firefox besides the uglier default UI. Granted, I don't do much on the web besides tohno-chan, porn, and look for a job, so maybe it's faster or something, I haven't noticed.

Another difference is that there seems to be an odd bug when I try to delete all the cookies in a domain: it only deletes every other cookie in that domain...

Also, getting on exhentai was a pain because cookiemanager+ isn't compatible, so I had to use a sqlite database managager plugin.

Power came back on Monday, was glad it did because I was starting to get into arguments with my family over silly things.

Went to a Japanese restaurant (Gyu-Kaku for those wondering) then splashed in. The beach/half-assed swimmed then watched the independence day fireworks by the beach.

I use Seamonkey (like both you and the person you're replying to) and found it annoying to get exhentai to work. Maybe it's because I use an older machine and GNU, but I just found over time that it runs more smoothly and does everything I need as well as Firefox does.

Yep. In the game I'm playing sniper rifles don't show the crosshair and shoot wildly unless you scope in. With the tape, I will know exactly where I'm aiming and all I need to do is scope really quick and shoot. It's cheap as hell and makes people really mad so I love it

I spent the last couple days in a psychiatric hospital again. I was ready to die, but I'm okay now. I've determined I was brought to life to be physically and mentally abused. To be laughed at, ridiculed, stepped on. After all this time trying to change things and accept my terrible past, I've given up. I am weak, do whatever the fuck you want. I don't care anymore.

Slightly more uplifting is news I received: a short story I submitted to a literary magazine earlier this year was accepted. Though, I am unsure as to whether I really want it published; it's personal regardless how fictionalized it is, nor do I have much confidence in myself as a writer, though I guess if it was accepted it's worth something. Guess I'll think on it.

I spent the majority of today setting up a Windows 98+XP dual-boot on this computer from 1998 that I still had hooked up.

After that, I considered using it as a server for something, then I realized it's probably way too slow for anything like that. Oh well, guess I can always boot into 98 and play DOS games...

I tried talking to my mom about that episode of and it was frustrating because she totally misunderstood key scenes, which is no surprise considering she didn't understand the finale last year either and who knows what else. I have no idea how she can watch television if her brain can't make even the simplest deductions, must be why 90% of what she watches is reality show garbage.
>> No. 15892 [Edit]
>>15876
John Fahey is great. Check out Jack Rose and James Blackshaw as well, they have some similar stuff. And Robbie Basho too.

I woke up, had to deal with my annoying grandmother, then went to the park for a walk. It's too hot though, and there's that kind of sunlight that seems like it's not there but you still can't to open your eyes fully, so it wasn't a good walk. Also listened to The Downward Spiral while walking.

Called a bunch of bike messenger services. I got nothing. Well a few are hiring (like 2). Granted it's summer so shit is full then anyway, but I couldnt register earlier or try applying as i was dealing with class. Ugh. well I should specify I FINISHED calling all 20 or so listed on this site, after looking through all the messenger businesses posted on Yelp.

2 Days ago I went to this food festival with my mother and some cousins. They are in my city from Mississippi. Showing them how it is in a big city and all that. They fuck you in the ass re. prices, and they try to hide that by having a ticket system - i.e. 8 dollars for 12 tickets and most shit is at least 5 tickets. Fucking 3 chicken wings from a local/black-owned chicken chain is like 8-10 tickets. Fuck you, you can get a ~8 wing meal with fries for like ~8 dollars. One guy noted "they're playing with us". I also pissed away nearly an entire strip on italian ice + a pop as i ate some spicy-ass african food (jerk chicken + red beans/rice). I did like those Thai chicken satays with peanut sauce on it (the sauce is better than it sounds ^ _^)

Something weird happened to me today when I picked up the phone (there was no one else home)

I felt a electric shock go from my coxis straight into my skull. It made me tingly all over, and I got this salty taste in my mouth. I dropped down to the floor, and started grinding my teeth while drooling. I didn't cum, but I was pretty close. I have no idea what this phenomenon is called.

Today I was dragged out in brutal summer heat to go to a museum with my sister, and saw some interesting stuff. There was a piano & some sheet music in this one area, and for some reason I started playing bits from Brahms' Piano Concerto No 1. Somehow a person realized I was deaf and next thing I know a group of people were listening. It was really uncomfortable so I had to leave. At least I know I can still play well, but it made me really anxious for the rest of the day. Fuck summer.

I exercised for the first time in 2 years.

I ran for 30 minutes on a medium intensity program on the treadmill and it pretty much killed me. During exercising and a little while after, it felt like my heart was going to burst.
I'm going to try and do it 5 times a week, though.
The only thing I'm worried about is that I'll lose even more weight.

But seriously, it's as much fun as sticking your hand into a bee hive. Even with music, it seems to take forever.
>> No. 15915 [Edit]
Nothing. Learned like 20 kanji, tried to play go but I only played one match and got pissed so I stopped. The guy kept blitzing even though we had 30 minutes each, and resigned after a bit even though he was ahead. It was really annoying.

I recently read this: http://www.zeldauniverse.net/articles/the-message-of-majoras-mask/

, then I killed some bees with some cockroach spray that were trying to build their nest near the entrance to my house after I killed some weird flying black insect thingy that I'm starting to see more of in the house. The flying black insect thingy looks like a bigger mosquito that was an inch long (or at least seemed so because of it's hind legs). I then slept the rest of the day.

I now feel hungry. Or at least felt hungry when I was typing this up.

Guy with the 'hikikiomori' shirt from the last thread. I wore it again today, and a gay guy hit on me while I was reading a book on the baltic countries' history at a bookstore.

I made a lot of tweets on Twitter today. Most weren't very good but I could talk with a Brohno some, at least. If anyone else here uses it, I have my U/N in the email field. It'd be fun to add each other on there. It's kind of like IRC.

Ordered a new laptop keyboard (fucked mine up when I was drunk last night, heh). Looked at some esoteric belief websites online and got some good laughs. It's such a bizarre subculture, the new age and paganism and UFO's and NWO and all that. I mean, I think that I'm crazy, but at least I mostly live in reality... those guys are fucking NUTS. They really believe that Haruhi talks to them and that Satan's trying to take over earth or whatever. Could you call it modern mythology?

I think I'll watch the Zeta Gundam movies tonight after watching the K-On one. I feel like I've been disconnecting from reality again lately, so these distractions are helpful... it feels like my mind is full of mud and our material world is miles and miles away. But it gives me inspiration for ontological and metaphysical writings, so I can't complain too much. It's just making any form of thriving in life past staring at the computer screen or lying in bed very difficult.

Woke up real early with a bad headache that I walked off, and ran into someone again that I met from /jp/ earlier this week, who lives near by. Sat around the rest of the day cleaning, IRCing, and then wrote some more ramblings about phenomenology and its relation to modernist and post-modernist contexts, mostly for my university admission. Going to spend the rest of the evening playing VNs until I fall asleep.
>> No. 15943 [Edit]
Got very stressed out and emotional for some reason this morning after watching the K-On! movie so I went to wander around outside. Woke up someplace weird again. After I got home, I read some papers on Western new religious movements and attacks against materialism. I've been thinking about postmodernity a bit lately and how its ideas could be combined with some form of traditionalism. Other people are desperately in need of premodern though, I think; or perhaps they only think they do because fragments of it persist within our society... we don't need to move past modernity, we need to recreate it.

I've also been reading about a game called Nomic (http://www.earlham.edu/~peters/writing/nomic.htm#intro). I think that it'd be fun to play that here; if anyone else is interested, I'll make a thread! Ideal number would be 4 people, and we'd probably need to use a tripcode (though a name's not necessary). I don't really know how to play it but I think it'd be fun to try out.

Got really drunk and watched K-On!! (second season). Looked at lame websites online and went out for a long walk, had a good time. Haven't been able to sleep again (been up for 24+ hours)... but it's interesting, how it affects the mind. I'm sure I'll feel really awesome after a long night's rest.

Also found out that there's another diabetic hikki roughly in my area, and she's about my age. It's weird how many otakus you meet with type one, I don't know any with type two even though a popular image of an otaku is the fat neckbeard or whatever. Maybe I just look out for them more, but this makes five other diabetics I know... it's comforting, at least.

Stayed up all night thinking and wandering around the streets, trying to once and for all forget someone from my past, and to annul some vivid hallucinations I kept getting.

In the morning I had to meet with a sibling I never knew I had until a couple months ago, to take care of my parents funeral. It was the first time we met so it was really weird. At least those fucking pieces of disgusting trash are finally dead and rotting away. I've waited my entire life for this moment.

I'm a former active 9/11 truther (fell out with most of the 'scene' but still talk to some); and yeah there's some weird conspiracy theory shit out there. For a period of time when I was younger I read the UFO and other textfiles on former TOTSE, rense.com and infowars and related shit. Apparently there's more new conspiracy forums like the Haruhilikeproductions forum which I sometimes post on.

>another diabetic hikki

Actually, I'm taking some tests this morning, to check for levels of uric acid in my body. I was relatively well for a couple years; but last month I started again with polyuria (over 8 times/night), madding itch/burning in my heels/tarsals and a few days of acute renal and joint pain. I finally decided to Google about it and the possibility of it being Gout got me quite nervous. We'll see what happens.

Spent the morning sitting beside a river writing. The application requirements for the Ph.D programme at this school are quite long, but whatever - I have a couple months to do it. It's already longer than they accept, so I'll have to shorten it down another time. Later, got talked into accepting the idea of a roommate to live at my place for 3-4 months due to money problems. At least they're an otaku and, funny enough, does stuff on 4shit, so there are some similar interests. They have one really big manga collection too, which I can't wait to check out.

Feeling tired, so I'll just play Battlefront 2 the rest of the night.

Today I replaced the laptop keyboard which I broke. I added more RAM while I was at it, too. I found my Nook and added a bunch of literary criticism ebooks to it, with a focus on post-structuralism. I thought about dogmatic thought and its role in philosophy. Some dogmatic thought (such as Wittgenstein's Tractatus) appeals very strongly to me, while others (such as Evola's Men Among the Ruins" turn me off quite a bit. I believe that to an extant, all philosophy is dogmatic; but it's a term that you don't frequently see associated with philosophy so I really find it rather bewildering as I think about it more.

Good luck, man. Diabetes is a really shitty condition, I wouldn't wish it on anyone. Us type ones can eat junk food and drink soda with it, but for things with many carbs, it's a pain getting all the insulin in (if you use small needles) and it's also a pain if you stop being hungry half way through your meal. It's also annoying trying to guess how many carbs are in a food... Guess too many and you'll get hypoglycemic, with the risk of coma or brain damage. My friend told me about how once almost died from that.

Guess too few and you'll get hyperglycemia which is also a pain but not immediately deadly. One common misconception about diabetes is that you take insulin based on the amount of sugar you take -- in actuality, it's based on your carbohydrate intake. Insulin is taken in a fixed ratio to carbohydrates; that means that even if you want to eat bread or pasta (foods which tend to have NO sugar), you'll need to take shots.

Things like meat or diet soda or alcohol are pretty much "free" though, you don't need to take shots for the first two because they have no carbohydrates or for the latter because it just does weird things with your sugar levels. I recommend against getting too drunk, though, since it feels a lot like low blood sugars. You could black out drunk with a low blood sugar and get in serious problems with it.

On the topic of diabetes I talked more with my diabetic friend about the topic of meeting. I've never met a diabetic with an insulin pump (I use needles and I'm happy with them!), so I'll learn more about the condition, if nothing else. My friend's been a diabetic since the age of four years; I can't imagine how awful that'd be. I feel like my encounters with death and the amount of care for my body that the condition requires have made me appreciate life a lot more. What's kind of funny about the person is that they're also a 2D con, with a bunch of H manga and doujins and eroge. I kind of hope I'd get to see it...

I enjoy lazy days, but not the ones were you just sleep. The most productive thing I did was dust my library room.

That latter bit has me thinking: for those of you with lots of books (manga and LNs acceptable) do you bother to organize them in any way? By genre, author, or whatever? Mine just sit wherever there is room on the shelves or floors because I have so many.

I have a lot of books, and I tend to sort non-fiction by type of book (branch of study, date work was published, and finally by author). Most of my non-fiction falls under philosophy or religion so such sorting is very easy to do. As for fiction, I just sort them by author's alphabetical last name. With my manga, I sort that by series name, and for personal journals, I arrange them more or less by date finished.

Why not use the Dewey Decimal System or the American Library of Congress's sorting method if you have too many books to easily sort them with your own method? Dewey's system is very easy to use and it makes a lot of sense, and you should be used to it if your school system used it (most people I know have).

Here's the LoC's classification system, if you're interested: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Library_of_Congress_Classification#The_system

And for the DDC: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dewey_Decimal_Classification#Classes_listed

It's wonderful that you have many books! I thought I was the only one on here that was a bibliophile. Have you been reading anything good lately, Anonymous? I've been looking through Guénon's "The Crisis of the Modern World" and enjoying it quite a bit. A friend of mine's been luring me into the world of traditional thought, it's very intriguing...

Real 3D children are the most cruel creatures on this shit hole of a planet.

Pretty much this. Today I went out to eat and there was a family in front of me, and they had two kids.

Not all kids are awful and irritating. I've been working as a tutor, and I've had to teach some younger kids (well, middle school age) and they're not so bad. Energetic, to be sure, and they get bored with the material, but they do what I tell them. A couple are like that quiet girl you mentioned.

>[handling children]

There's this little stuff I do at home and get some payment for. However, the boss's birthday came along and he announced that he expected us all coworkers at his house the next saturday, to celebrate with him (so I'd better go). I thought it would be hard, with all those people there drinking and laughing and talking shit I had no intention to contribute on; but, like heaven sent, my boss's pretty little daughter, around 5 years old, somehow grew fond of me from the first moment and clung to me the entire while, showing me her drawings, stuffed animals and ballet books, withdrawing me from almost anyone else in the place and, very happily and specifically, from any other woman...

So, thanks to the loli, I could both endure the party and leave a good impression at everyone, as they admittedly acknowledged me as "good with kids". This was all, of course, thanks to her being actually cute (though kind'a nuts, at the end) and my being very civil about it.

Yeah I am expecting the children to be a bit annoying; as I remember that time when I was younger. I.e. classmates saying I was eating a dick because I was eating a banana. I admittedly LOLed at that. Thi will be fun.

They are like 10 to 13 years old (ppl at the job) and I used to judge policy debate tournaments - But they were teenagers and middle schoolers. And I was 21 when judging them I.e. not much older.

Honestly cursing and spouting memes doesn't bother me much. Depending on what happens I might let them wrestle each other without interference and shit if I can get away with it (I.e. don't get fired).

Anyway I'm doubting these kids will all spout net memes these kids are kind've ghetto - but fuck I've seen ghetto people and people from the hood at anime cons and wearing weeaboo shit so meh.

Woke up early, read a bit of manga and organized some books. Watched Yuru Yuri and got bored. In the afternoon, I took a handful of Ativan and went to my old university and bugged a music professor I know & asked if I could play around on a piano. I've been considering some of the best musicians were deaf, why stop what I like to do? So I spent a couple hours playing Totentanz for piano solo by Franz Liszt over and over solely by memory and watching the hammers/dampers. Apparently I can still play all right, but there are some issues with the pressure velocity and thus loudness of some notes.

Thanks!

I went out to eat with family for dinner as celebration. Sometime, I think maybe thirty minutes before we left, I began to enter a state of psychosis. About two hours later I found myself in bed with a bad headache. I think that I saw my family and I think I left sometime in the middle, but other than the fact that I left, I can't recall anything else. I'm not a psychologist, but the best I can describe my mental state would have been as being "psychotic." I remember losing myself in daydreams. It's very hard to describe, but it's like dropping out of reality into your imagination. Rather than having the things you see around you forced into your visual field, and the things in your mind's eye barely visible, existing underneath your perception fo reality, if that makes sense, the things in my imagination became much more powerful than what I could see. I knew that it wasn't real, but my actions must have been unconscious. In my bed I had some spare change and there was an empty water bottle on my floor, so I think I bought that. A while later, after I think he arrived home, I asked my father how dinner was. He said it went great but he wondered why I left. "I dunno," I told him. "Do you really not remember? Were you just nervous, maybe?" No, I can't remember anything at all. "Were you on drugs?" The scary part, I think, was that I wasn't on any at all. My blood sugar levels were also normal before I left and when I returned, so I don't think it had anything to do with that. I've had several episodes like this before, but as I haven't been leaving my room, there's been no harm to me and no one else has been affected by it.

My dad said he'd buy me some books so I got him to buy me a 4 volume set of Joseph Campbell's "Masks of Haruhi," Sherwood Anderson's "Winesburg, Ohio," Rene Guenon's "The Crisis of the Modern World," and George Berkeley's works. I also got a text on literary criticism from Ihab Hassan. Really been enjoying Winesburg, Ohio. I'll probably read Campbell next because I've been really interested in religion lately. We went out to sushi after we got books and that was nice.

Today I had an early doctors appointment which left me pissed off. After, I read a little Averroes, worked on a painting then played Macross Ace Frontier with my sister.

Got more medication, but my illness seems to be intensifying again. I'm seeing people that don't exist, and hearing voices that demand I do awful things to myself if I am to be offered any respite. The sick thing is they don't give it to me - but I can't say no to them. I don't know what to do.

Going to screw around with Red Alert multiplayer for the rest of the night.

Today I went out and did some very stupid things, which I regret immensely and will probably obsess over for the next few months. But I also feel more lighthearted than I have in a long time.

Today I read and daydreamed. It'd be nice if I could do that forever. I've been trying to see if there are ways I can induce "total hallucination" in myself (thinking about unpleasant memories, spending time outside, sitting in the complete darkness [my fear]), but I can't seem to figure it out. If I knew what caused them, I might also know how to prevent them. I've been thinking it was stress, but that's not it... and I've been eating and sleeping and drinking water like normal, so that's probably not be it, either.

Got stuck in the rain last night with my sister for at least 2 hours, so we got drunk in a park. There were some real cool lightning strikes. She suggested she buy me a real piano and would not let me refuse, so today we went shopping. I settled on a used Yamaha C3 Grand Piano. I have no clue how they plan on getting it in the building we live in but apparently it is no problem (coming this week). I can't wait to play it, regardless.

I've been reading this real cool VN I heard about yesterday, called Subarashiki Hibi: Furenzoku Sonzai. It's so far one of the best I've come across. The characters are all very interesting. Check it out - seriously!

Got really drunk and played a bunch of Counter-Strike last night. Passed out, woke up a bit hungover. Pretty fun night.

Later on, in the evening, my sister wanted to take me out for a drive. She was kind of creeping me out because she kept squeezing my shoulder and rubbing my back and smiling at me. We stopped by a little store and she bought me a bunch of sweets (my father doesn't let me buy them for whatever reason) and told me she wanted to see me more. I hope she's not a brocon because people who fall in love with their family members are really mentally fucked up. One of my friends online was just telling me about how he knew a Japanese fujoshi who was fucking her brother, so I know it's a thing which happens... Really, really disturbing.

On the way back from our drive, she asked me if I wanted to smoke weed with her. I told her "maybe" to be polite. She thinks I've never used drugs or drank before, it's kind of adorable... Maybe I was reading too much into the stuff earlier, but I've lost a lot of respect for her after finding out that she's a stoner. But she has a nose ring and frequently has 3DPDs spend the night... they sometimes make lewd noises... ick.

I ordered some clothes on saturday for some odd reason and they came today. I was home alone but luckily it's one of those delivery companies that let you put in where you want the package leaving if nobodies home. Just had to go outside and fetch it without talking to the guy.

Then I went for a bike ride, 21 miles in 10 minutes less than I did my previous 20 miles. Feels pretty good.

They see me and the big girl smiles at me and says hello.

Few seconds later, she says "Fuck you" and pushes me to the side as they walk on and laugh.

it does what is supposed to do play music.
20000 songs was not much when I realized I had 45000 songs more on another harddrive. My advice would be to only upload specific certain albums you like and not a bunch of random albums like I did.
Google music feels also like the first time I used Itunes all music became unsorted from being sorted(songs with same name are put into one album and many other strange stuff like covers)
I have been spoiled by spotify(2008) and foobar.

Two days ago, there was a big parade in my town. For some reason I can't explain, I went and wandered around during it. I ended up settling down in a bookstore where I bought a copy of Schopenhauer's "World as Will and Idea," and I enjoyed reading that there. Idealism's been really appealing to me lately for some reason.

After I finished reading that and drinking a few teas, I left the woman in the store a tip of $20 which she seemed to really appreciate. They had nice chairs in the store and it was very quiet, and the service was nice... Then I made my way down to a local grocery store and picked up some cough syrup.

On the way home, I consumed 533mg of dextromethorphan (9 days worth of the stuff, according to the label!). It lasted for about 11 hours. Had a grand old time on that. I played some video games (Left4Dead on Easy mode, Killing Floor) and just had a blast. Wandered around in my house on it a bit too. When the drug started "peaking" as much as it really does, I just stared at my hand... then I went outside and just stared up at the stars. There's been shooting stars where I live which made it even more wonderful.

When the trip was nearly completely over, I went to Seattle with my family. The car ride was great, I just tuned them out completely and felt good riding around. They left me and I wandered around for a few hours. Had some Japanese food, played arcade games, rode around on the bus system, stopped by a bookstore. Got some more tea. I did surprisingly well; I didn't feel any anxiety or stress like I usually do when I'm outside of my room, and I wasn't tired at all, which was odd, considering I was up all night. I believe both of those strange effects resulted from my drug use.

I passed out in the car on the way home and slept for about 12 hours. I'm still pretty exhausted since by body's catching up to me... spending a lot of time outside, interacting with others, and going on mystery drug trips really wears you out. Today I'll probably just sit in bed and read Descartes and ponder more on Idealistic thought. Wow! I had such a great, amazing weekend! I can't believe how happy I've been, this is the best I've felt in... literally years!

Felt dizzy and went home, and worked on this Russian language play I've been doing that is vaguely based on Texhnolyze...or at least borrows its setting. To thank the person who bought me the piano, I took them out to dinner and had an ATM eat my bank card (fucking stupid thing).

My last wisdom tooth started coming in today. I figured most people have theirs by 16 or so, but I'm 20 and just now getting the last one.

Dammit, does it hurt or what. I can't breathe through my mouth, swallow, talk, or even listen to music without feeling pain in my mouth.

I noticed that I had a bit of swelling on my thigh that could've been from a bug bite or maybe some allergy. I've had it for a couple of days and decided to let it bleed out a bit by cutting it a little. I managed to put a small incision on it with my best knife, but as soon as I saw the blood coming out of me, I have no idea what happened, but I felt extremely nauseous and felt like vomiting. I felt a good deal of vertigo to the point where I lost my sense of direction for a few moments. My stomach was in pain and I couldn't do much except inhale and exhale as much as I could to calm myself.

I'm still not sure if it's the sight of blood itself or just the sight of my own blood that makes me weak, but I have no idea how I've come to be like this.

The 3dpd who cut my hair this time though, oh gees. Wearing a crop top, skin tight jeans or jeggings, fake tan and dyed black hair. Most of the time she had her tits in my face or digging into my back. I told her I wanted it short but then she cut it like a mid length womans haircut, then when I told her I wanted it shorter like shaved short she suddenly seemed really pissed off and didn't cut my hair very calmy.

I cut my hair a week ago.
I hadn't do so for over the last 3 years.

I cut my own hair since I was 15. It's not that hard, indeed: you just need 2 mirrors. And however it has turned out, it always felt alright or liberating, in any case; because ruining/mutilating oneself in many ways it's usual, but giving someone else the chance to do it (and pay for it)? no way in hell.

I got into an argument with my dad while I was helping him outside with some yard work. After I was finished, I was standing on the porch in the shade and suddenly he walks up to me and says "Why do you stand like that? You look like a robot, stand up normally."
Obviously, being the autist I am, I was and still am completely confused. I tried to fix my posture, but he just told me that if I continue to act the way I am, people are just going to make fun of me. For some reason, I was pretty hurt by that.

Now it really scares me to think of all the things I've been doing wrong and haven't even noticed. I don't think I ever want to go outside now...

It's ok, your not alone there. I always don't know what to do with myself when people are watching me and look beyond awkward. It's the worst when I'm self conscious about it. I just discovered how bad it was to be self conscious today. I'm usually stimmed out of my mind on coffee for 2 days straight every weekend. I feel like shit but just more mentally numb, not so self aware shit. Today I didn't have anything and I went out later to a buffet. I felt like the whole world was watching me and every movement felt slower. Was also much more angered easily by everything around me. I can not be sober on a weekend, very embarrassing and uncomfortable things happen.

Yeah when I'm out I am the definition of zoo animal when I'm out. I just look different or to people something is very off about me or I just give a strange vibe or something on top of never knowing what I should direct my eyes to, to appear normal enough so that people question me either. I try hard to not draw attention to myself. I also hate when there is a long walk to the exit door and a lot of people are looking at me. Then my movements become extremely fast and twitchy making me look even more disturbing to them. Some laugh, others give strange looks, kids point, staff is confused. It's a nightmare.

Disclaimer: I'm a NEET and I don't do any excercise whatsoever (in fact I never did). I'm pretty much a shut-in, too, I leave my house less than once a month. An occasional 20 minute walk to the library and I'm already out of breath and my legs hurt.

Spent 3 hours carrying some heavy building materials yesterday; we spent the first hour carrying 25kg bags with concrete to the top of a building which is 3 stories high. We still have some ~ 1,5t (60 or so bags) left to carry. Did it with my father who is in his late 50s, he looked fine to me. Embarassing as hell.

I'm 21 and at night the muscle cramps were so bad I could cry. Couldn't sleep at all even after stuffing myself with painkillers (well, not literally 'at all', eventually I did fall asleep). I expected to be unable to move today but it's not as bad as I thought it'd be. Still, I don't think I can carry more than 5 of those Haruhidamn bags. 25kg sounds okay and it's not so bad if you just have to walk with it but once you enter the staircase...

Actually, my day is about to finish. It's pitch dark where I live; all family sleeping. I ended the pencil study of a butterfly I had to do; I listened to a version of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" by Susanna and the Magical Orchestra (which was surprisingly good: she included probably the best stanza of the entire poem); had a cigarrette outside and then remembered there's some Jack Daniel's they just found in the cupboard, from many years ago, and I had good shot...

I hadn't have a drink in ages. I hate drunkness, for ideological reasons; I just did it with the hope that it might help me dreaming with my waifu, as it has happened before. The thing is, I drank a 360 mL Red Bull first and, so, I got almost instantly drunk. I rush in heat, now; I can barely type...

I can't see why just about anyone wouldn't like at least some touhou centered music/doujin music in general. So many releases that there is something for fans of everything. You don't even need to actually be into touhou anything else to enjoy. I was listening to some psytrance tracks by this artist called Raveheavens last night with some other psytrance and I finished off my night with some heavy darkpsy by an artist called Tryambaka. It blends in quite well. We need more high quality doujin psytrance. Only other I can think of off the top of my head is some of EastNewSound's stuff. Fun music, I just like to blast it loud and play pc fps games all night to it. Maybe I'll even throw some drum and bass into the mix too. But most other times late at night playing pc games normally I'll just be listening to some average metal/metalcore or some quiet glitch music in the background.

I was taking it specifically for the delirium. I was a bit tired when I took it already, but I was able to stay awake... and while they weren't very severe, I had some hallucinations. The next morning, when I awoke, I slipped into brief periods of delirium. Took a low dose just to see if there were a possibility I were allergic to it. After I had sobered up "enough" that day, I took 250mg, double the dose. I had to watch my house while we were having a garage sale and having to interact with people had me feeling very very nervous. Left me feeling really nasty to seemingly no more effect (possibly less, I felt!), but hey, it helped me deal with my anxiety some. I had a bit of a "body high" (felt a little bit like being drunk, but I wasn't much happier or sadder, my thoughts felt very clear). It most of all leaves you feeling thirsty with a gross taste in your mouth, can't say that enough. I plan on going 500mg this upcoming weekend... with 500mg of dextromethorphan as well.

I got a book called Solitude by Anthony Storr from the library.

I live in a small town so tons of books I borrow from the library have been used for decades; I think less and less people use libraries nowadays so every now and then I borrow a copy which hasn't been borrowed since the 90s. Feels pretty surreal when I find some notes in them, they have been written over a decade ago afterall...

But I don't like people who write/underline stuff in books, you should only do that if you absolutely need to and even then you should use a pencil and erase it before returning the book.

I should have made it clear: I only underline and write on MY books; if they're borrowed, I indeed just take notes of them somewhere else (folded sheets of paper, more commonly)...

However: scribbling on books, for me, is fundamental for one to restructure and apropriatte of them, as it turns the initially plain text into a sort of relief map ad hoc for one's interpretation, needs and purposes. It's the only way for me to start incorporating them into a ready-at-hand acquis of knowledge; and it didn't just started as a whim of mine: I was taught to do so, in philosophy and text analysis courses. It isn't mandatory either, of course; the important thing, in any case, is to build an efficient system of notes to rely on.

I like to find out notes on books that were used long ago. Almost nobody buys music sheet books nowadays, most people copy it out of the internet, so large editions are normally really cheap in used bookstores. I recently bought the sinfonias of Bach for harpsichord from one of them. The woman who owned this book must've been really good because all of the pieces have dates on the end of them from back to the 70s. I presume they were when she concluded studying each of them.

I went to my psychologist's today, but I was feeling so "out of it" that I left 20 minutes into the appointment. I saw really bad static on his walls, and I couldn't think at all. I kept glancing around and mumbling. He had a hard time understanding me, I think. He kept having me repeat myself and conversation was very difficult. "Don't worry about it, just go for a walk, and then go home and rest," he told me. After that I walked around outside and the colors were all so vivid. The sky was so blue, the grass was so green... It was awful, I just wanted to be in my room more than anything else. I saw a girl I'd spent some time with in high school on my way back home; she was pregnant now, and smoking a cigarette. "Hey," she goes, "we should hang out again sometime." We talked some about art and I guess that was kind of nice. But she isn't the type I could see at all past a brief hello on the street... I grabbed a copy of Hegel's Phenomenology of Spirit, Smullyan's First-Order Logic, and a compilation of texts in a volume titled "Man and Spirit: he Speculative Philosophers". I really hate abridged books, but it'll introduce me to some new texts, I suppose...

I bought a close friend of mine Dota 2 and we're going to play that some tonight. I'm looking forward to being able to teach someone how to play and having a new person to play with.

I'm still feeling really awful and distant and everything's very fuzzy and distant. I'm watching myself type this and my hands feel like theyre a thousand feet away, it's so bizarre. I'm completely sober today and I have been for a few days, so it's not like I'm high or drunk or anything.. it's so bizarre! And I'm disappointed that my psychologist couldn't do a single thing to help me with it, even though it's the reason I'm seeing him! May as well get some rest

From what I remember, most of my day was spent sleeping. In the morning I played some Monster Hunter Tri and got quite far in it. Later on I got beat up again by the person I live with. For some reason or another, they are really violent toward me...but there is nothing I can really do about it. After that I took a bunch of sleeping pills, and went to hide in my library all night. Switched between napping, writing in my notebooks and reading a few Sherwood Anderson shorts from "Death In The Woods" until I lost focus, and then played more Monster Hunter until I fell asleep.

I don't know why or how it happens, but I've noticed in the last few weeks a very strange phenomenon: I feel very depressed and "lifeless" all day but somehow as soon as midnight passes I feel much happier and energetic somehow, and my moods stays like this for the rest of the night. It's very unsettling because during the day I know I react to things in a strange way and witness myself acting illogically but I'm powerless to change it. And the same thing happens in the reverse direction during the night. It's also disturbing because my daily routine is the same, and my activities are also essentially the same whether it is 2 AM or PM. What's more I know it's not because of the light because I only go out about once a week to stock up on food, and the rest of the time I sit in the dark with the windows closed.

I'm starting to get used to it but I wonder what causes it.

So, it's been about two months or so since I have been on the internet last. Now that I have it back, I'm not even sure if it's what I really want.

But it's surely better to be on the internet, for sure. The term "introspective hell" doesn't even begin to describe where I was during that time.

Not being able to be online made life as a NEET seem definitely unappealing. I feel like I have probed into the deepest recesses of my mind. Now that I have I'm back online, it feels as though I have pulled a band-aid off of my soul. I feel genuinely disqualified as a human being, now. It feels completely alone and alienating and strange.

Ate a little more than I should have this week due to some anxiety that I might be called for a job interview. Well what a silly thought that was, who would ever want to call me anyways.

So I think I'm in the clear as they also ship quickly and I'm just a state above them. But Friday I'm taking the perverted plunge. for fapping!

Talked to my grandfather on the phone, applied for SSI, read, pondered, gamed, and chatted. Didn't drink. Here are some thoughts I end my day with:

When I lie still in my room, silently, time halts for me as my space ceases to change. With this death of time goes space with it. A quick shake of my head is all it takes for me to leap back into reality.

Our memories are not the source of the stream of time. Rather, they are like lamps on boats, letting us see we're traveling down a river at all.

Things only happen because they must.

If the future were predetermined, and a method for glancing forward were to exist, how would our minds handle seeing their own next thoughts?

Determinism is the belief that time is an aspect of the world, while liberty is the belief that time is an aspect of the self.

Time and space are as inseparable as world and self.

Watched some anime, mostly shows I need to finish before next season. Later on drank, then talked to some people about things. Wrote a bunch of drunken gibberish in my notebooks about whether positive virtues, good actions and such originate naturally, or if they must be a conscious decision we attempt to take. Went to sleep for a little bit and woke up feeling ill but clear headed. Attended two doctors appointments. One for a new medication, and one regarding general therapy for learning how to socialize properly without getting paranoid and anxious. Luckily they were at the same place, so it saved time. However I sure don't want to do any type of social stuff and what they described sounds awful, so I'll probably not go.

My psychologist told me that he had no way to help me with my derealization/depersonalization today in our final meeting, but told me a lot of nice things. Read some Spinoza, got a really cool straw hat (very warm, yet also very cool), lectured a child about philosophy some -- I'm really trying to get him to study it while he's young, and he's very bright, so I have hope for him! -- survived a medical emergency, pondered on the world and on beauty, counseled another, and meditated on the best way one could conduct himself. Just now, I finished writing a short essay on why poetry is merely a shadow of what philosophy is. TL;DR: Although both poetry and philosophy are man's attempt for discovering Truth, poetry's methods are flawed, resulting in a useless end product. To be poetic is to be opaque, while philosophy strives for opacity.

My mother gave me a nice collection of essays on postmodern thought. I'll have to read that Saturday or Sunday...

My doctor spoke with me some about desensitization, seems like a good idea to me! "See, the idea is that if you go outside just a little bit every day, and go out just a bit longer, it'll be a bit less scary. But don't do anything too extreme -- just going out for a block or two can be enough." For someone with an awful aversion to people, maybe being dropped in a room with a bunch of them isn't the best idea, but if it's done enough, there's a chance it makes that person feel better.

Last night, I drank just a little teeny bit of gin, wrote my former philosophy professor (the man I have the highest respect for) an email, played a bit of Black Mesa until I realized I'd already played Half-Life, played a bit of Counter-Strike with a Brohno (we got slaughtered ;_;), watched a movie called "Tao of Steve" with my father, who loved it not nearly as much as I hated it.

So old contact in the Air Force (really nice, generous guy) tells me he's taking leave this next couple weeks. He has recently learnt about the severe anti-Japan protests in China and is scared that he may have to go to Okinawa. He was never notably pro-Japan, but he's asking me to help him write a bilingual letter to the Japanese consulate, stating the people of the US support Japan, and wants to get together a few people to go to Boston and deliver the letter to the consulate, stage a small demonstration, and then protest outside of the Chinese consulate.

I nonetheless talked him down from the Chinese consulate protest, but I think I would like to do the letter to the Japanese consulate and deliver it.

I deleted a lot of the music I had stored, around 4/5ths of it or so. I used music mainly as a means of avoiding the world, and lately that has stopped working, and I realized that most of what I listened to was pretty bad musically. I was content to listen to it so long as it kept me distracted, so I never noticed.
I started trying to make notes on what I read. I wrote two fragmented sentences and couldn't do it anymore. Too tired. I have a feeling I'll erase them tomorrow, but I think I got a glimpse of what I want to write there a few moments ago. I must be more constructive and structured. My mind is all scattered lately, and it is becoming frustrating. Maybe by writing down things it will make it easier to organize it. I also must work on my handwriting. I think I can make it a bit neater now.

I remember getting diagnosed when I was about 11, right after moving to a new town, probably because I was just a sheltered, quiet kid. I think that was the point when my life started to go downhill, since the new school overreacted to the diagnosis and treated me like I was retarded.

I worked out again. This time, I didn't feel as weak as I did last time. I was able to fully support myself with both arms as I did pushups for the second time this year.

Then, what I thought was difficult turned out to be extremely easy. I managed to do correct situps by using my toes against the wall, which is a first time that it I've been able to do it like that correctly.

I think that I'll be able to get strong enough to fend myself if anybody were to attack me on that day.

I'M NOT FAT, but I think that I'll be able to lose a little bit of unnecessary size. When this is all done, I'll probably gain it all back since I don't plan on leaving my room with the exception of that day.

When I was a student at my school, I did a term of "work study" in its IT department. I didn't learn anything, but it was just a few hours of very easy work a day. Because of budget cuts, they've had to "let people go" and other people have quit on their own. I did my work and I did it well, so I guess that's all there was to it. The guy sent me an email a few days ago sayng they needed help and that I was at the top of their list, so I should come down.

When I just go downtown or look in my newspaper when I wanted jobs, I couldn't find any either. I guess I just got lucky that I could make the right connections when I was a student. What's funny is that my mom told me that her brother applied for the same exact job I have now a year or two ago and was turned down.

Sounds fair enough.

Last night, I called Shinden9, drank a bunch of whiskey, shouted drunkenly at Russians in Dota2 (and got a few to yell back), read some doujins with onee in them, and <drugs>abused a drug called Benzedrex as I started sobering up. (Benzedrex is a stimulant drug, legal, over the counter.) I'm feeling a ton of clarity of mind and euphoria, but it comes with a bit of a shitty body high, like a lot of legal drugs do. Maybe I'll do it again... So glad I had some gel caps saved for this, it smelled like crap. WHY IS IT THAT SO MANY COUGH MEDICINES ARE ABUSEABLE?! Yeah, yeah, I'll go read or something.

Then I when I finally got out of bed in the morning I had to choke down some food as I blew my nose and spit gallons of the disgusting and painful snot saliva out. Then all throughout the day I must have drank over 6 full glasses of water. I feel my efforts are starting to pay off now, pain is going away. Let's hope it stays away.

At the end of the day, it's just data, and if I really cared, I would re-play the games up to the point I was. Most of them were beat, anyway. The only major "loss" (if it could be called that) was my P3P data - I had just barely made it past the first boss, and to be perfectly honest, I am sick of playing through that specific portion of the game. You could say it sucks, but in a small way.

I guess I'm really surprised at how little it's affecting me.

Benzedrex is honestly the best. I don't see how anyone can dislike the body feel of it. I guess I can see how some people find it jittery, though. Or maybe it was the alcohol that made it so bad? DPH is the only drug that I've tried that has a "shitty" body load. Now that I think about it, it's the most strange, inappropriate drug to even consider trying. DPH that is. Benzedrex could be considered weird, too, but it's nothing but good in my eyes. I ended up with it being a habit, actually. It was at a point where I was either crashing from it, or high on it, day in and day out. Needless to say, I did nothing but write a bunch of sometimes mundane, sometimes brilliantly insightful ramblings and masturbate for 8 hours at a time. But I still like it. Just don't overdo it, and it's perfect.

Sinus infection? I used to get those a lot as a kid. They're awful ;_;

I think part of it was imagined, and I only really felt a little bit of one at first. It was nowhere near as bad as DPH. Tons of fun! I'll have to watch out and make sure it doesn't become a habit for me as well. How did you deal with the taste? Did you do lemonade extractions, would you parachute the cotton, use gel caps, what?
>> No. 17131 [Edit]
>>17129
Chop the cotton in half, put some water or soda (although soda makes it worse in some ways) in your mouth (fuck that sounds weird - I mean take a mouthful of whatever drink you have and hold it in there), put the cotton in, take another sip of water, and swallow. Taste is barely noticeable if at all. You can chase it with a few (as in 3-5) Halls or some other really flavorful cough drop if you want to almost completely eliminate the lavender burps. That's how I used to do it. I never bothered with extractions myself. Watch out for the crash, though. It will kick your ass. If it doesn't already, it will, as it gets shittier the more you indulge.

So, I'm getting a state ID on Tuesday. In order to join the GED program. Really strange.

Has anyone here taken the test? Is it particularly hard? I'm imagining it's quite easy. But still, it has math on it, and like...I'm fully retarded when it comes to numbers. I barely know my times tables and all that shit. The notion of me doing long division is a joke.

And I'm probably going to have to take the classes, which is going to be a whole other deal. Kind of like going back to school, but...probably worse. I'm assuming that there's going to be a bunch of the "pregnant at 16" types, as well as some heavy-set black men. I'm not racist, but the idea of going to school again is so weird.

But yeah. My goal is to get that done, and then get a job. Hopefully I'll have my own place by the end of next year, and will be attending the local community college.

It's so surreal...I honestly never thought my NEET days would come to an end.

I took the GED exam just myself last year. It's very easy, very slow, and very boring. My first thought when I actually took the exams were "fuck I could have done these in middle school! Why did I even go to high school?" and could do each of them in about 20 minutes. There were a lot of stoners and alternative school-type kids, and a few older heavyset moms, as best as I can recall. They give you a calculator for the math section and a piece of scratch paper. Even if you have a hard time with numbers sometimes, you can form basic sentences in English as well as read them, can't you? Everything will be fine, then. I wish you luck!

I never had an ID before. I can't drive, so I can't get a drivers license. I tried to get one once from the DMV but they make it as complicated as possible and you need to meet requirements as stupid as "3 pieces of mail to you personally". I want to sell a lot of shit and in general have more freedom so when an employee anywhere wants to be a dick and ask for my ID I actually have one. I didn't know they actually expire though. If that's true then I'm still fucked because there's no way my parent would care enough to take me down to where I got it to renew it, the only place is far away.

Closest thing to Unix I have here ready for use is Cygwin.
Tried with it and failed because MAME has no configure script and I couldn't find how to instruct it to use mingw-w64 as host directly on the makefile. Then shit happened and either it wouldn't want to do the cross-compilation or it wouldn't find the 64 version of the required includes.
I ultimately gave up on Cygwin again and found the Mingw MAME toolchain by accident on their site, which worked almost immediately.
Seems my main problem before was getting mingw and mingw-w64 to coexist on the same MSYS enviroment. On the last try I just ditched MSYS completely(fuck Bourne) and did everything on windows console itself, besides using the mame-specific toolchain.

Compiled, runs games, HLSL works properly, all cool.

Today I found out that I'm going to be going bald. Possibly within the next 10-15 years. Maybe even 5.
Shit kind of sucks. I mean, Hunter S. Thompson was bald, and he's pretty much my hero. Damian Abraham, of Fucked Up, too, although he's not particularly a figure I look up to. But he was fat and bald, and the dude is bad-ass. I figure if I really need to, I can call upon the natural charisma that everyone seems to have, but nobody really uses, and people won't really care.

What are some bald anime characters? Kagerou, from SZS. Mr. Braun, from S;G. That's all off the top of my head. Probably loads more.

My neighbor stopped by to tell us that one of her ex-boyfriends has been threatening her, and if we see anything suspicious to call her.

Checked my e-mails and all that stuff, and found a message from a past employer I had a small job for. They'd like me to work another job for them again, messing about with visual data compression.

Yesterday for my allergies (getting better, inside of head still feels stuffed up and nose isn't as runny) I went to the store with my mother and she got some pills for me but they don't seem to do anything. But I also noticed they contained DXM and that reminded me I always wanted to DXM trip. Then I also remembered I don't have an ID and I probably would get carded. I'm what you would call ID locked from society. I can't do anything no matter how old I am just because I don't have a little plastic card that says I'm me. I'm so fucking sick of it, I can't even freely buy or sell things on my own without questioning myself if I will need an ID.

Today I stayed up late playing Borderlands 2. Woke up a bit too early and some brunch with my little sister, then I got ready for work and had a short first day there.

Some advice regarding cough medicine: Check to see if there's an active ingredient. If there's not one or it's not labelled as a drug, it probably won't do anything. Some advice regarding DXM abuse: read the Haruhidamn DXM FAQ, for starters... and yeah, it'll help with your cough a bit during the trip, but then it'll go back to normal.

Had to go out to eat since there was nothing here. Ate some very bad chinese crap somewhere and felt like killing the person I went with beside my father becase he's just the worst type of normal (though my father's not much better). Then I listened to some songs by artists I liked and realized I disliked most of them. I wanted to keep reading The Republic but I can't figure out where I put it. I played go, won a game because of a big ko. I started feeling uneasy, restless and more self-loathing than usual a few hours after that so I did some bad things to myself, and managed to calm down.

Friday I scheduled a phone interview to see about applying for SSI. So the $120 I was supposed to start getting each month isn't SSI, but something else? Don't know and really don't care, I'm just going with the flow for now.
I'm thinking that nothings going to come out of this, but the lady I talked with when I got my medical insurance back said she can help with my case, so there might actually be a chance in getting accepted.
Though I still plan on trying to get a job sometime, this is just an interesting distraction until then. The sudden switch from full on anxiety, to talking with people on the phone without much problem has at least been some improvement. Maybe my anxiety is exaggerated.

As for other things I did today...
I talked with my brother for hours while he was playing devil survivor 2, then later, somehow I got lost in time and accidentally took a 2 hour walk, did my anki reps, then paced around my cousin's yard for about 30 minutes. Even on medication my time is wasted on stupid shit. It HAS to be the music's fault... can't stop listening.

a bit extra for today's wastes, since 4 months starting, today's the first day I smoked over a pack of cigarettes in a 24 hour period. The usual's just a pack or two a week.

Went downtown and as always I started feeling awful on the way there. I couldn't focus or think, I felt uncomfortable, and everyone pissed me off. On the way home everyone I saw looked strange. I felt like they were all planning something. I listened to some Autechre record on the subway trying to ignore everything around me, but it wasn't that good so all it did was annoy me more. I'm exhausted now and I have a really bad headache. Awful day, but I really shouldn't expect anything else, lately they all are.

When I'm feeling really upset with something that will prove to be a problem that can extend into the future and block the flow of my life I can't enjoy music. It's like my mind telling me I'm not worthy of freely enjoying it at the time. Also I never liked Autechre much, tried to since I love glitch but just couldn't.

I took a 100-minute walk looping a lit <1km slice of road that has a few steep slopes on it with a backpack weighing about 12kg. I'd been omitting exercise for three months, so my legs shouted in pain, but I made it.

Woke up hungover, which wasn't fun. It had been forever since that last happened, haha. Some smokes and a couple of ibuprofen tablets cured me, though. I was disappointed, because we didn't have water when I woke up, because I couldn't take a shower. How the fuck does that happen?

At dinner, my stepfather compared me to his deceased daughter. That kind of fucked with me a bit. She would have been my age if she didn't die.

Other than that, I just played MGS: Portable Ops. It's alright. The camera can be a little frustrating at times (only one stick, so you have to use the D-pad to control it, and it gets stuck in weird angles a lot), but I love me some Biggu Bossu.

Also downloaded Shin Sekai Yori, and I'm not so sure if I'm looking forward to watching it or not.

Sometimes. Just sometimes, it feels like the world is only some kind of sick show, and everyone else are just characters/NPC's to interact with. But solipsism's played out like the jehri curl, so I quickly quash those thoughts. It still disturbs and shakes me, when it comes up, though.

Tried going online last night. Ubuntu used up its entire partition of the hard drive to the kilobite, so Chromium kept closing out. I wiped my (probably virus ridden) sda2 partition so now a year and a half worth of files and programs are gone. The partition would not mount so I had little choice in the matter. Going to wipe the hard drive and start over now. I have some pics on a few flash drives. Not like it matters. What do I do with pics anyways? I get halfway through a file dump and just give up. Nothing was organised anyways. 

Now my network is doing to my itouch what it did to my computer: it won't send me any info from the internet unless it is a certain time. I know that the same viruses that affect a PC don't affect this iPod, and I know that they don't know I have this iPod, so it must be Comcast or the router firewalling me because it must not like a website I visit or some dumb ass shit.

Went to work, got a desk, and was introduced to a few more people at my college. A few teachers said "congratulations!" to me, which made me feel better about myself. I had a surprisingly nice time -- after I had to be social, I got to spend a lot of time alone in a big computer lab doing mindless work. They don't let people drink soda in computer labs usually, but since I'm staff they don't care!

After that, my dad told me that he'd rented a nice apartment that I'd really like. "It's really big, three floors with three rooms! You'll love it," is what he said. Three bedrooms? Who's that third one for, I asked. Turns out that the ex-3DPD of his I despised most is moving in with him "for economical purposes." I told him that I was going to move out if he did live with her and her brat again, and well, I got a job and a degree and I'm an adult, so it looks like I'll be living on my own soon.

I spend most of my time spacing out alone on a computer already, so transitioning to a line of work (being the IT guy) that lets me do more of the same won't really be too bad, I tell myself.

Today I accepted a job offer after spending a week or two ruminating over it. I'll be working with signal processing and lots of numerical linear algebra - very autistic. It's only a 4 month offer, but it pays really well. I hate working but at least it's something tangible I can focus on to avert myself from more depressing and enervating things going on.

After I spent some time worried, over contemplating some strange thoughts I had about something, while also becoming a bit more lucid to the fact I've been aberrant in many ways lately. Went out for a little while again to do some things, bought some masala chai tea and calmed down. Once I got home I shrouded myself under a blanket and read some literary works by Dmitry Merezhkovsky, and watched someone in my family play League of Legends. It's a game I've only played a bit myself in the past, but I tried it again and did okay.

The rest of the evening I've spent cooking, reading work by Joseph de Maistre and wondering a lot of things.

Good job getting the job, man. Surely you'll be happier with some cash flowing in?

Today I wrote a lot. Like, from 1 AM to now. It's 4:23. And I intend to do more, after I finish this. It feels nice to write...Sometimes I feel as if I can make anything happen, with just a few colorful words. I can make a happy world, I can (try to) make a heart-wrenching story if I want to. I can influence emotion and I can create characters with only words. No need for painting or drawing, which I'm terrible at. The only real "con" I feel about writing is...language. It bothers me to think that English might someday be obsolete (it's a vague possibility, y'know? give it a couple thousand years). I wish there was some kind of universal language we all shared. But that's all stuff for the ponderings thread, I guess.

I should probably head to bed, but I don't really want to sleep...It's not that I'm not tired, I just don't want to curl up and basically die for 8-16 hours quite yet.

Recently I've been more aware of noise. People are so noisy. I can't be in crowds or anything, it gives me really bad headaches. What's strange is that I never really noticed it before. I think it's because I was always listening to music when in public, and lately I haven't listened to anything. Music sort of lost its charm.

Tonight I found out from family member problem with pc is more complex than just power supply issue because it just got a blank screen with all fans running. They said they will try to rule out a graphics card issue tomorrow. They at least said the HD is ok which is a relief. Looks like I'm in another week of misery. I can't do anything right now, life seems to be on permanent stand by at the mercy of my family who probably grows more sick of me with every passing year. One problem goes down another comes up equally as crippling in it's place. I feel like a caged animal right now. I think this is the most hopeless and depressed I ever felt in my life.

My day was rather prosaic but stressful. In the morning I had an appointment with my psychiatrist who put me on yet another mix of medications that "should help" - meaning it's more an experiment than a cogent treatment of any sort. The appointment time was confused and I ended up a couple hours early, forcing myself to waste time at a near by cafe which drove my anxiety to its limits. Once that finished I came home and wasted some time writing about Hegel and his predilection to the théorie du grand homme often prominent in his thought and its role on contemporary political concepts (namely fascism). Hegelianism is a philosophy I academically despise yet nonetheless find very interesting to study.

After, I went out and wasted a lot of money on a video card and installed that. I haven't yet played anything to test it out, but for what was paid it should run anything - quite excited to see what it can do. My elated mood eventually came to an end after learning of some terrible news, which has left me feeling very depressed though such feelings I must deny to myself. Instead I'll have to be as supportive as possible and try to help the person affected.

Mouth ulcers you mean? I get absolutely huge ones once a month or two, the size of a 1p coin most of the time. I have bad mouth hygiene even if I brush my teeth twice a day. A good thing to numb it I find is something sold over here in the UK as 'benzydamine hydrochloride' which I'm sure you could find in any drug store if you asked. Rinse around like mouth wash but do not swallow, numbs it.

Also, cover them in salt until the stinging goes away. Will numb them hardcore too.

My room is pretty nice to me but there is some old shit in it I really want to get rid of and replace with like a nice poster or something. I guess some other parts of it I can edit to my liking but I don't have the money to do that right now. I just got done throwing more money into the blackhole that is music collecting today. In today's Internet purchase I got 2 pretty expensive albums but I'm glad I did. Supreme Show by Ami Suzuki (probably just expensive because import.) and +\- by Ryoji Ikeda. Pricey but worth it for me. With every album I purchase I inch just a little closer to completing my collection. I should start saving up for more expensive rare stuff. But then all of a sudden some artist releases a new album I want that really blows me away and I become slightly dissapointed in a way as it's like taking one step forward and then one step back so your back where you started just with less money.

It dawned on me that by running away from home at a young age to get away from some troubles, I subjected someone else to the same thing. How can I live with myself? I'm really fucking selfish and lie far too much. I don't really deserve to live.

I went and saw a female shut-in otaku who gave me a bunch of books on philosophy. That was all that happened, she shoved the books into my hands and ran off.

I spent the morning with my sister shopping for houses, but without any results again. It nonsensical to move right now anyways, so such setbacks are a good way to coerce her otherwise.

After that, I don't remember a thing. I was told I kept having conversations with my hallucinations, though I can't recall any of it. When my memory of events or entire days starts to fade away into nothing, it tends to mean my disease is getting worse and I fall back to my addictions and intents to destroy myself. While it's something I've grown used to, I've never been able to perceive why. Any time I begin to feel hopeful or happy for something in life, the pastiche of voices and personalities in my mind go out of their way to deny it to me by any means possible.

I start my new job soon (was supposed to be today, but just got told to not bother - it's a holiday and they figure there is no point), but I've already become really anxious about it and fear I'll fuck it up. The last one I tried ended after no more than 2 weeks when I shamefully quit and ran out of the building. However this one is a job I am comfortable doing so hopefully it doesn't once again result in extirpation.

So, I wrote out this entire post, and accidentally closed Firefox, so the abridged version will do (it was superfluously long).

Thought I had skin cancer, but it turns out I just have Becker's Nevus. I'm honestly the most relieved I've been in my life, because dying of cancer is my deepest fear. Especially as a NEET. Becker's Nevus is just gross as shit (and even then, mine isn't too bad).

I also faced the realization of my own death, and came to the conclusion that I don't want to die without seeing Kizhi Pogost (and Rome). The former is a wooden church in Russia. Made completely out of wood, without any nails. Like Lincoln logs, just significantly more creative.

Although honestly, I'm hoping for some GiTS-esque technology to become available in the distant future, so that I can have a full-implant loli-cyborg body (seriously, I'd give anything in my life to be even a failed experiment for that kind of technology).

And I played Valkyria Chronicles II way too much and drank a teeny bit, finishing the bottle of tequila I had been going at for the past week or so.

I'm a huge gym rat, find a 24 hour gym and go in the early morning (2-5 am). No ford driver idiots, all equipment is free, the only people there are there to do real workouts, not chat or do the baby curling shit that the kids who want to be popular do.

Tomorrow I have to see my new psychiatrist. The last one retired or something and I've only met this new one once. I hope that I can just make him think that I have some ADD and depression so that he can leave me the fuck alone. I'm a little nervous about the whole thing, though.

Today, after spending four weekends in a row going to concerts, casinos and hotels, my mother has the gall to demand I start selling my inheritance and give it to her. I am given "until the end of the month" to sell two dolls a month and give the money to her.

That money is NOT my mother's and she will NOT get away with trying to make me depend on her more. Nothing is worth this. Nothing. My plan is January or sooner, I will be gone. And to the last place she wants me going. She can't be going to concerts and HaruhiDAMN GAMBLING AND STAYING IN FIVE STAR HOTELS and claim to be having money issues because of me (when my meals and Internet come from the renter and my mother never pays for anything but cheap gifts on my birthday and Christmas).

I pirated Sibelius to see how what the fuss was all about since it is so popular. I can't believe a program that calls itself the best music notation program doesn't have 64th notes, it doesn't even compute them if you import a midi file. How archaic can it even be?

I was too quick to judge Sibelius, the program is far more useful and has far more resources than what I initially imagined, turns out I could find them because it is equally complex. I guess using Sibelius instead of, lets say, Muse Score, isn't as much as target a classical music audience as much as anyone who needs more resources for notation than what most of other programs give.

The instrument's sounds are shit though, you should use Cubase 5 for that.

I'd really like to quit smoking. It's just so unhealthy. I've been chain-smoking for more or less two straight months, so it's not going to be easy. But it'd be worth it, I guess.

Other than that, today was okay. I ended up staying up for over 20 hours, and that brought me to a really weird place. I ended up looking up synopses of films by Harmony Korine (the shittiest human being alive, and one of a handful of people who made me lose faith in 3D movies) and crying on my back porch because of how helpless everything seemed. It was cathartic.

I also realize that, anywhere else on the net, I wouldn't feel comfortable at all telling people this kind of shit. Tohno-chan is special like that.

So I responded to my decision to quit smoking by rolling cigarettes for most of the night.

Other than that, today was good. Got really into Manic Street Preachers. I've been listening to them a bit since a couple of years ago, but I was never this into them. A guy (named Richey Edwards) from the band disappeared. I think I'd like to disappear someday. Just move to like, some obscure Eastern European country, and not tell anyone where I'm going. I listened to them all morning and read a bit about his disappearance.

And I need to stay up until at least 9 PM to normalize my sleep schedule. 9 more hours to go.

Going to download K episode 2 and Robotics;Notes as well. That should keep me distracted for like...an hour.

I did the same today as in the last couple of days: absolutely nothing. The days should be longer. I sleep for most of them and when I'm trying to convince myself I should do something, it's suddenly the middle of the night and I'm sleepy.

My cat is sleeping on my lap, I just had some tea, and I'm warm though, so it's an enjoyable friday night. I might read something, watch some anime if I can force myself to get up, and research some things that interest me tonight. I feel so much more peaceful at night.

I have and had a much more disgusting experience. One time I was really thirsty and didn't want any water. So I went in the garage and found a bottle of Powerade Zero just sitting on a cooler. I figured it couldn't be that old if no one touched it yet and I didn't mind if it was a little warm. So I open it and take a sip without a second thought and it tasted disgustingly sweet. So I take off the label to check it and inside was one of the most vomit inducing sights I ever seen. There was this huge, white, hairy looking, spore like thing floating in it. Needless to say I never drank Powerade ever again. I have no clue what it could have possibly been.

Thirdly, I hung out with my only two 3D friends. We went to the local comic shop and played Magic, which turned out to be both really easy and really tedious while spun.

And one of my friends, who's a bad driver (reckless; I'd love to do a Fear and Loathing-esque thing with him - a mad dash through miles of uncivilized desert), drove pretty decently for most of the day, which was a nice change of pace.

My SSI appointment is today. Has been on my mind for awhile. spoilers are drug related

Before that, some things I've done today...
Few minutes ago on a walk in the park I almost ran into two people, right after almost falling off a short bridge. Should really be careful walking in the pitch black. That got me thinking that I *might* be one of those creepers people say to watch out for walking at night, I'm probably too weak. I look like somewhat of a bum, and sometimes under the effect of stuff, often pacing around randomly in a public park at night. Nightwalks are better than day, not giving a fuck.

Other than that I did some writing practice with some random japs. Rarely actually do this though, not even sure why. Writing my thoughts out in a different language can be fun. My reading and writing have made some improvements it seems. That's it though... I'll never be able to speak nippon, I STILL can't even understand when others speak.

Later, I'm going to make progress on my quest to get SSI.
First, I have a doc appointment, 10 hours until the doc, 12 hours until an SSI related over-the-phone interview. Doc's appointment should be easy if these side effects go away. Wide open eyes and slightly foaming mouth will stand out. SSI interview will be a new situation, unknown questions,etc. therefore scary etc.

I honestly have no clue what I'm going to answer with when they ask me about my "disability", "why it prevents me from working",etc... Aspergers and social anxiety doesn't sound like a very solid reason. My cousin had to go through court, get a lawyer, etc. No way I'm doing that shit though, if it comes to that I'm giving up.

This interview was actually supposed to happen last week, I really fucked up and skipped it. Almost lost whatever chance of getting on disability... or so said the lady that's "helping with my case". She seemed pretty mad over the phone.

Though that only happened because of stupidity with my meds, planning ahead this time.was only on 15mg, which is just 1/3 of my prescribed daily dose. Playing borderlands 2 with my bro allowed me to save up 4 days worth of the stuff. I've downed 105mg of adderall IR today, two 15mg pills every 30min. Then to prevent me from avoiding my business, I'll be taking another huge dose before my first appointment. My daily dose is 15mg 3 times daily. Confirmed that I won't avoid this.

Getting any amount free money monthly would be a nice bonus to have, while I take my sweet time with job searching.

Only reason I'd want friends is for when I'm using my stuff, two NEETs on it would be some fun. Too bad I'm a friendless aspie. Large doses of amphetamine actually make me want to talk to others, like seek them out, leave my house. Scary how close to being a normal high doses can make me. No one would even guess I'm a shutin. After waking up my anxiety returns at full force. then I get the cringe inducing memories of me in situations I'd normally avoid at all costs.
I want to try out stronger stimulants someday, if prescription shit that anybody can get does THAT, illegal ones must be pretty badass.
If disability is granted to me, I'll use tax payer's money to buy that shit. Surely the tax payers wouldn't mind assisting me in temp. curing anxiety. Can't do it with this neet budget.


Part 2 ...because I forgot to click submit. chance to add some extra shit I thought about.

I was thinking that ME getting disability would be funny. As far as I know my health is perfect, have access to stuff to fix my only problem, even tried to apply for jobs, not my fault nobody hires me. With that I could leech tax payers without any guilt. SSI is somewhere in the $600-$700, more than I thought. Curious to see if food stamps is also included. That one lady mentioned "helping my case", no idea what that means.

I'm going to be paying attention to what kind of questions, etc, and of course how badly I think I fucked up. Most likely won't tell me my real result until laterr. Way later.
blogpost so tooo long, might be boring as hell.

I'm going to post again after my interview, might be able to answer questions from fellow NEETs or soemthing

Went to the dentist today.

My teeth have always been terrible, so nothing they said was of any surprise to me. One is going to end up getting pulled because it is too close to another, apparently. It's in the back of my mouth, though, so it probably won't affect much.

Also, I'm pretty sure my body is fucking up. Blood comes from a place it probably shouldn't. Not often, though, and it isn't like a constant stream of blood, or I would have gone to the hospital. Or bled out before I could have, but it still weighs on my mind.

I miss talking with you guys.

I went to the get "interrogated" and was asked a bunch of questions. I didn't feel all that bad until the layer blurted out "he has schizophrenia or something" in a very "put down"-ish kind of way. After that and being humiliated about being a NEET and if I had a GED and shit like that that I became depressed while they sorted the rest of the shit with my mother.

I didn't even do much to make myself seem like a retard, hell, I even answered their questions and looked them in the eye and everything like a normal does. It wasn't until my problems came up that I was considered a retard by everyone in the room.

There are no trains in my country.
>> No. 17769 [Edit]
I love trains. I'd like to just ride them for the rest of my life. But on the inside. I don't want to be a homeless person or something. If there was a way I could own a private train, and travel around on the railroads, then I'd have something going.

I acquired my state ID today. It's like, a month later than I intended to get it. But still. Now I can get started on life beyond my bedroom. Pretty excited about that. Although the car ride there was horrible...I always end up in a really bad argument with my mother whenever I get into a vehicle with her, and this time was no different.

I also realized I use the words "though", "like" and "dunno" way too much. Basically, I talk like a teenage girl. That should change. So every time I use one of those words in excess, I'm going to flog myself. Not really, though.

The day started out kind of shitty, but I feel better now. Definitely cheered up substantially within the last hour. I don't even know why. I'm actually really craving cigarettes and I'm too sleepy considering I got a solid 10 hours last night. But still. It's gotten better since going to the DMV.

I've also begun playing Haruhis Eater Burst, which is actually pretty fun. However, I think it's just a Monster Hunter rip-off. Made it to the end of the second chapter. Of course I'm playing as a girl. Although I'm hung up on what weapon to choose - I keep shifting between the 3 choices of sword-type.

I wish it was colder right now or at least colder and beyond October since the temperatures for it can be so weird that I don't even know if it's warm or cold and I don't like this month anyways. I like one extreme or the other. I don't really mind November since it is just getting cold and staying there. I never know what to expect from the temperature and it drives me crazy sometimes.

Someone recommended looking into hospital work, so I've been looking into it today, along with night jobs at a few places. It hasn't gone well. Having no references or work experience, and only a few years of school, really hurts finding a job I could live on up here.

>>17753
Yes.

I've already accepted that if it gets worse I'll go to the hospital, but since it has happened before and went away, I'll wait and see what happens, even if it is a pain in the ass. HAH. Ok, that was bad.

I managed to get some work done at my job today. My boss is in Atlanta so motivation to work on stuff iss difficult, especially when I don't understand something. I just try to go at my own pace. I also got started on a huge chunk of my backlog today, so I'm feeling happy of that. I might lay down for a quick15-30 min nap soon, then work on sorting a bunh of cards I have.

Sadly I have to go to bed between 10 and midnight, as this new job forces me up at 6. I really didn't want a job in the first place, but I figure taking it was the best option since they approached me with the offer, not the other way around. Wish me luck in my work endeavors

Well, luckily for me, I still live at home with no expenses. It's also only a part time job at 19-20 hours a week, but it pays $10 an hour, so really, it's not too bad. I still have classes after work, but it's only two classes total this semester, and after this winter, I am done with school forever. Since I don't have any expenses, if I still have this job after I finish school, I'll just keep it at 19-20 hours a week to keep my sanity and have a bit of money to both save and spend.

To be honest, figs aren't really my thing. I'm more of a plushie person (and there's quite a lot of plushies of my waifu and her friends), but hey, money for waifu-stuff is still money for waifu-stuff right?

I've basically lost my mind over the last week. Ruined so many things, lost so many things, regret so many things. Just another repetitive juncture in life. Doctor says I have dissociative identity disorder on top of my schizophrenia which is just fucking great. Tell me more please, maybe that I'm dead and none of it's real. Worst of all is that I have no good anime left to watch - I'm convinced I've now watched everything I want to see.

I only ever get into that kind of predicament if there's something that I want, but sometimes I just realize that it's impossible to obtain it on my own and give up.

I don't mind, but music scene is total shit around where I live and no one but a bunch of terrible cover bands and other typical indie bands. Also the closest place that plays music near me is some old bar with a small concert area. No way am I going into that place. So I'm limited to one place much farther away, just within reach of me. I just like to see a bunch of various metal because you can act like a total retard and still have no one give a shit. If you have a chance and these place is decent, go for it. You'll have fun.

Aren't they not supposed to tell anybody without your permission? My old psychiatrist used to ask me if it was okay to tell my mother anything, although once I let her tell my mother about how I loathe my physical appearance without thinking and she ended up telling a ton of people.

It was awkward and annoying as all fuck to hear so many lies that day. I figured it out months later when I was thinking to myself since it seemed really odd for something like that to happen.

Well, I went to the movie theater and it was full of shitty middle school kids. My mother wanted to watch a horror movie, but the one she wanted to watch was full or some shit and we ended up watching the one called Paranormal 4 or something. The movie itself was terrible and it involved some sort of plot about ghosts and some sort of adopted kid that was apparently some sort of "chosen one". The movie was stupid as all fucks, and the fact that some woman was 1HKOing all of the normals almost made me fall asleep. Then something about a bunch of humans with demons in them and them grabbing the lead 3DPD because she was a virgin lol at the end was a very stupid. It wasn't all that scary and the normals were too fucking stupid to understand it.

I stopped paying attention close to the end, so I have no idea what happened to the father, but I guess that having a knife magically almost fall into your skull with no visible traps or tools was not enough to convince him that something was very wrong.

After the movie was done, I decided to wait for my aunt to finish her movie, so I went with my mother into the Hotel Transylvania movie and found it to be much better than the shit I was watching, despite still being pretty stupid.

Fuck the outside world and fuck movies. I should've stayed home. Fucking disgusting 3DPD shitspawn.

Can't remember most of my morning other than going to school. When I got home I sat down, drank some tea, cuddled with my cat and read some useless news/checked websites. The internet is becoming quite a bore. I need to find more interesting websites to visit, but it's hard. Right now I'm trying to gather the courage to get up and take a shower, and then maybe go for a walk if the weather is nice, and take my half-decent camera to take some pictures of ducks and whatnot. I have decided that I'll finally catch up on all the anime I have missed lately. I hope I don't slack off again. I'm considering trying to buy a laptop just because my desktop PC is really uncomfortable to sit at and noisy...

Yes the internet has been so slow lately. I usually waste time searching for more interesting music, talking with a small handful of internet friends that are still around, or just playing some pc games to pass time.

It's one of those "rare" days where I don't want to do anything but listen to punk records and laze around the house, but can't get comfortable no matter where I am.

Not that I'm complaining, I'm fine with not thinking, but it's annoying when you can't just space out because you're in public. I'll have some tea and pretend I'm a moe loli now.

I have a job interview this morning at 11:45 and I can't sleep. It may end up being my first real job in my 21 years of living, and with my living conditions right now, a lot is riding on getting a job.

It's not even the job part that makes me nervous, it's that the job is in retail, so I will be in constant contact with people, which, as one may guess, fucking terrifies and agitates me.

Woke up early, drank a lot of coffee and did my job (book editing now, easy work which I can thankfully do from home most days of the week). Got distracted from that and worked on a paper of my own about Catholic theology; for a few reasons, I've a renewed interest in Catholicism - not only intellectually but personally.

Missed a psychiatrist appointment in the afternoon for the second time in the past 2 weeks. Watched some Sound of the Sky episodes with someone, then cooked dinner. After, my identities began to change, and there is a 1-2 hour gap where I was not "myself" and forget everything - reading my notebooks, at least all I did was read an LN and lay down for a bit.

Spent the remainder of the evening talking about travel, world history and fascism while waiting on Chuunibyou subs, which completed the night.

Today I watched movie "Lars and the Real Girl" because one person recommended it to me. It's been while since I've watched live action movie and I think it was really good and most people here would probably like it too because story has similar elements than having a waifu. While synopsis might look like joke, it's actually very touching story and something different than most western movies. Movies like this give me hope that maybe in reality people aren't so judgemental as they seem to be.

Today I played around with a UNIX server at work, cleaned up my apartment and found $200, and then went out and bought some movie tickets. The movie was rated "R" and the woman gave me a funny look and said, "You don't look 17 to me, buddy," which really hurt my feelings.

At home, I played some DOTA2 and set up my computer so that my bro on here could get past his parents' anti-hentai webfilter using my computer as a proxy. And right now I'm spamming Tsadiq's memos on IRC with requests to be unbanned. Guess I'll play some more DOTA2 and eat some garlic bread for dinner if I get hungry.

Living alone rocks. You all should try to do it if you can. As much as work can be a drag, it feels so good getting away from my parents.
