I'm also currently visiting my small town home for the first time in a long time. It's a strange feeling, I hate seeing people I went to school with just completely ignore me.

I heard a song and I recognize it but I can't remember what it is. It's irritating me. Help me out guys, it's a song I feel like I've heard everywhere.
It's the song (remixed?) in this seemingly pointless youtube video which is just watamote's episode 12 ending with a different song, and maybe a filter? Also, for some reason, I feel like it gives the clip a somewhat apocalyptic feel, somehow, until Yuu shows up. Like shit just hit the fan and she's running for her life from death squads through a blazing city or something.

You wouldn't even have to go there to work that out. Only know the premise of the place. An entire site that defines themselves by their inability to find a 3DPD and have sex - gee, how could these people possibly be normals?

The Doomstar Requiem is one of the best things I've ever heard in my entire life. I can't believe that I put it ever since someone told me about it here, but I guess III being as mediocre as it was didn't really help it.

I'm really glad that Toki doesn't die. Toki's part was pretty good and I really liked I Believe since I believe that he deserves that happiness for the awful childhood that he had, along with being overall a pretty good song. Some Time Ago and The Duel are also pretty good.

Been watching Adventure Time. It's okay.
It's occasionally pretty funny, with scenes that literally made me laugh. That's pretty good for me. Most shows don't make me laugh.
And also occasionally it has touching moments.
>> No. 24934 [Edit]
I've been watching it as well, and it's not that bad. I kind of don't like when they start throwing in slang terms every once in a while. Aside from that, I also have to admit that it managed to make me laugh as well.

The creator of Adventure Time also created another series called The Bravest Warriors on YT (https://www.youtube.com/user/CartoonHangover). It's pretty decent.
>> No. 24945 [Edit]
If you enjoy that show I'd also recommend Rick & Morty. It's a bit stupider than adventure time but I found it a lot more entertaining, it has its share of sentimental moments too.

Finally caught up on Adventure Time, so I'll check these two out.
I wish there were more entertaining moments in the show, because the rest of it is really boring. I was expecting season 6 to do more stuff with Finn's dad and his arm.

>It's a bit stupider than adventure time
I am all about stupid.

Here's some favorite scenes that I can recall because watching the non-good parts is a pain.

My favorite episode is probably "Memory of a Memory" because
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ctCPSN7Ho_s and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gfijG7pmMqk
The episode "King Worm" is also good not because of any specific moments, but because it accurately depicts dream logic.

In "Freak City" (couldn't find a video)
Finn: Jake, stop screwing around. You're gonna make me give into depression.
Jake: Eh, what are you going to do about it? Probably nothing, right? If you're depressed, you'll do nothing.
Finn: I... Maybe I will do nothing. Maybe I'll just lay down here.
then https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gFMxgv4ZdKo

Buff baby redux: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tp9-y3fRNEk
Also, if you really want to, here's the video they are watching by itself, posted by the guest animator for that episode. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NX_vcjZmQ9w


And also, guile's theme actually makes this scene pretty cool:

Well this is a pleasant surprise, I didn't expect anyone else on TC anywhere to also watch Adventure Time. For some reason I just didn't think it would be a thing.

Rick & Morty's creator is the Lemongrabs' voice actor as well, if anyone didn't know.
>> No. 24969 [Edit]
I just watched Rick and Morty, and I agree, it's more entertaining. I find comedy about despair to be entertaining. Although, the constant despair kind of makes me appreciate the light-heartedness of other stuff, so I guess that's good. My favorite line was:

Recently I've been taking around ten minutes a night to just sit in the living room with all the lights off.

It's really relaxing for some reason. I'm worried one of my family members might wake up midway through doing it though, and that'd be really awkward.

I started a small salad garden. I bought 3 packets of seeds - mesclun original, oriental mesclun and mesclun red blend.

I filled a box about 700-1400mm with potting mix/compost then a layer of special seedling mix on top of that. It's on the deck where it's warmer (early spring here) and has a piece of glass to cover it and stop it drying out.

It's not big enough I think and the plants will soon get overcrowded but you're meant to harvest them small. Will be interesting to see what comes up and how it grows.

The packets of seed were cheap and had several thousand in each so I will probably plant out somewhere bigger once it gets warmer.

I was meant to have a long day at uni today (10-5, but since I live so far away it's more like 7:30-7). The bus was annoyingly late, so I missed my train and morning classes. I decided to go back home and wait a while until travelling back in for my afternoon classes. Half an hour before my lectures I received an email saying that the classes are off. So I'm currently walking aimlessly around the city, hoping that this day can get even worse.

TT goes down all the time. Even when it's up many of the torrents listed there are still hosted on nyan and inaccessible. During nyan's downtime I've had to use crappy random torrent sites becuase even on many fansub homepages they still link to torrents hosted on nyan.

Thanks for the information. I guess that this season must be that bad if somebody is going to do such a thing.

Last night, I think I had a dream where I was suffocating. Honestly felt like I was going to die, being unable to breathe is one of the worst feelings.

I wonder if I was actually having trouble breathing in real life at that moment, or if it was just my mind fucking around.
>> No. 25035 [Edit]
I actually had a dream like that before. But it instead ended up being that I couldn't breath in real life and woke up, but not enough to shake the sleep paralysis from me.

I kind of regret not dying then and there.

I finished Hitching Rides with Buddha, also known as Hokkaido Highway Blues. It's a travelogue of a hitchhiker's journey across entire Japan. Great read. Pretty funny, I really like the author's sarcastic deadpan comments. Somewhat insightful at times and I think it's pretty well written. Recommended.

I dug up an old amplifier from the 80s, Yamaha AX-500. It used to be my dad's I think, it was on our attic. I tested it and it still works and sounds much better than the other amplifiers I have right now!
The only problem is that I have no idea where to put it, it doesn't fit on my desk because it's so huge and weighs 8 kilos.

Oh, I'm the person that got the Sennheiser 558s, and I know that it's late to be praising them with how much time has passed since I had bought them and received them, but after actually listening to music on a whim instead of playing video games or watching video game streams.

I can't believe that I forgot to put 'Trigger' in there. I keep going too fast with these things and keep getting distracted, but I'm a NEET so I can't help it.

Finished reading Nausea by Sartre.
It was mostly 2deep4me. I thought I might relate to the book because of my own existential thoughts, but as I feared, it appears my own thoughts are of the pop culture induced watered-down versions. Most of the time, I was just like, nothing is happening, this is boring and I have to look up words all the time. Oh well, it doesn't really matter. I don't intend to read a classic again. There were a couple funny parts though.

Also, I hope you like the words "obstinate" and "indolent."
>> No. 25078 [Edit]
If you can get your hands on it, Gianni Vattimo's "Introduction to Heidegger (Introduzione a Heidegger)" is a great user-friendly option to get into proper existentialism. He explains very clearly all the terminology and its background so you don't get lost in it (which is rather common).

Spring is here! Finally, the best time of the year has come. Some cicadas are already buzzing outside, the clouds have begun to tower above and the weather has started to warm up.

My ass is bleeding when shitting, lately. It hurts, of course, and today I even felt really dizzy and almost fell. I know it isn't hemorrhoids, cause I've had them before and this feels nothing like it. Actually, my mom just recently had surgery for an intestinal fissure; I hope not, but I might have the same.

Winter is the comfiest time of the year, just don't go outside.

As long as you stay inside winter is basically autumn except much colder and without rain. So less comfy if anything.
>> No. 25099 [Edit]

The nice thing about winter is theres a lot less bratty kids running around making noise. Since theres such a higher risk for car accidents you don't have those dumbfucks running up/down the street revving their truck motors either.

Theres also something hella comfy about being a little cold and slipping under 3 layers of thick blankets. Hoodies too.

Winter is nice, it's a lot quieter.

I've decided to start gambling on Salty Bet since I watch it so much and really like most of the songs that play there, aside from the Rap stuff as I don't really care for the genre, and it has been somewhat fun.

>Was it worth confessing?
Absolutely not in my case. She went out with me for a week just because she felt sorry for me, because she was afraid of hurting me. She tried to end it with me by lying, saying her mother had forbade us to be together. I found this to be not true, and still believed her when she insisted it was. A few days of avoiding me, and finally I find out second hand she was asking her friends about how she could dump me. She was chirpy and positive like Minori, I was caustic and spiteful. A year later she was fucking guys all over, and I tried to be there for her when she got hurt, and I only ended up hurting the both of us. I clung on desperately and I made her hate me. I regret every single moment of it. It poisoned me.

I ended up downloading the Sm4sh game because I couldn't wait for it to come in the mail, and so far I'm really enjoying it, but my 3DS's charging port got fucked somehow and now it doesn't charge properly. Also, the battery has been through so much with me putting more than 1000 hours into the console because I'm a no life NEET with nothing better to do that it is also at its limit.

With that said, I'm really feeling it!

Your post brought back a lot of shitty memories and I'll probably be thinking about them all weekend. I confessed to my highschool bully in my senior year and she turned me down. Bullying and loneliness really mess up your mind and the way you interact with others. There's a point where you'll welcome any kind of social interaction even if it's painful as normal and sometimes even positive only because you have no idea what it's like having people who actually care about you around.
>> No. 25166 [Edit]
I'd recommend picking up one of these: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B004SJFJUA
It doubled my 3DS's battery life and it allows the console to be charged without using the standard charging port.

I'm really enjoying smash too, I just finished unlocking all the characters.
>> No. 25167 [Edit]
Ah, thank you! This'll really help.

As for Smash, I haven't unlocked all the characters yet since I'm still trying to fully understand Shulk and use him properly, which is actually coming along pretty well. I've already memorized the Monado arts so that I can mash B quickly enough to get to the one I need, but I still haven't gotten used to reaching the art I need while being attacked and falling to my death off a stage.

Now it'll be Shulk time for double the time.

I spent like an hour concocting a plan to kill a cockroach standing above the door to my apartment, near the ceiling. I couldn't tell whether it could fly or not, so a broom's handle wasn't long enough for me to feel safe (I don't want it flying near me). I threw a pillow at it from across the hall a few times and it just wouldn't move. At this point I was kind of running out of things to throw at it, so I used my 5m retractable ruler, coated the tip with paper and duct tape, then hit the thing directly. When it fell on the ground (thankfully it didn't fly) I grabbed a piece of wood I had lying around and threw that on top of it, then I stomped that piece of wood a few times to seal the deal.

All I gotta say is I have a problem with these guys. Been living here for a year and a half now and never seen one, I hope it never happens again.

Just finished watching season 1 of Jigoku Shōjo aka Hell Girl.

I liked the atmosphere but not much else. Enma Ai reminds me of Iwakura Lain slightly, with her soft-spoken manner, eyes perpetually in "deer in headlights" modo, seemingly god-like powers, and often hanging out in some sort of nega-realm. She also looks a little bit like her in my opinion, or maybe it's the show's direction often focusing on her eyes like in Lain or the sound design sometimes being similar. Or maybe it's just that I don't watch that much anime. However, she's self-assured as opposed to Lain's insecurity.

The show is [i]very[i] formulaic for the first half. And mostly formulaic the second half.
1. Person does hentai-style villainy and is hentai-style untouchable.
2. Victim gets fed up and summons Ai.
3. Ai gives the victim the doll and explains the rules.
4. Victim hesitates and villain pushes them further with more villainy.
5. Victim pulls the string. Autobots roll out and send the villain to ironic pseudo-hell.
6. Ai, having fully rolled out, ferries them to regular hell.

Not sure if I'll watch further seasons. It does have very nice music and atmosphere though. Some of the particularly memorable music:

Not a lot of bugs flew into my room this summer. Heavier curtains than before seem to have stopped them as well as excess sunlight.
That's been nice, because while I'm actually fond of bugs of all sorts in the wild, them getting lost in here is just not a good proposition for any of the parties involved. I can't calm down with other larger than microscopic living things hanging around being unpredictable, and getting out is rarely very easy for them. They just aren't capable of understanding the complexities of the strange, cyclopean human architecture, and rarely actively into the idea of a lumbering giant twat grabbing them to drop them out the window like some monstrous crane game from insect hell.

Continuing on the curtain-related bent, I was unusually awake for the daylight hours today, and that had me constantly thinking of how I really need even heavier curtains.

So, I'm watching an S tier tournament on Salty Bet, and I saw Minagi kick somebody's ass. She's strong, but I don't know if she'll win the tourney since some of the characters might have insane gimmicks to go against, but her rushdown is strong, so it's really up to chance.

I watched kill bill one and two yesterday. I enjoyred it a lot but I was a bit let down by the second.
I feel like the first movie is a more of a kung fu movie and the second movie is a pure revenge movie. After I was taken aback by the intense fighting scenes in the first one I expected the second movie to be just more of that.
Sadly there was not nearly as much fighting I felt and it was all more about the story. That's of course not a bad thing, but just not what I really wanted. Nonetheless they were both really good and the acting was superb.

I just woke up from a dream in which I was listening to a song. It was mostly lyrical with that kind of "speech" vocals, if it was by a certain artist I can't really place it now. Maybe sounded a bit like Neil Young, but it wasn't him. The lyrics made sense to me while I was in the dream but now I have forgotten all but the tune, one line and what the song was about.
It was about a guy who gave up on his dreams to take a dead-end job and raise another guy's kids. I distinctly remember thinking "this is what normals are afraid of", I think I was listening to the radio or something.
Anyway, the point is I think I completely invented the song in my dream and (while I was dreaming, at least) it didn't seem half bad. That's the first creative thing I've ever done in my life and now I can't even remember the damn thing. Maybe it was awful anyway.

Same issue, and it's really hurting me academically. Accurately grinding out soul crushingly tedious engineering problems was never a challenge for me.

Bitcomet didn't work out well for me at all. Seeding never works, although downloading is still possible, but I want to give back since I believe that it's better for more copies of something good to exist.

Go with Transmission or Deluge.

IIRC that has to do with the allocation method you choose. If you select full allocation you can select the parts you want.
>> No. 25433 [Edit]
I'm trying out Deluge, and it has been a headache so far. I like how it just starts the torrents when I add them instead of asking me if I'd like to start them and doesn't check to see if I already have the files. I also like how the directory for the files to be downloaded to didn't change despite changing it over 15 minutes ago, of which I made sure I didn't somehow mess up when I clicked 'Apply' if it was changed or not.

Also, the whole thing about being able to only select one torrent at a time is pretty stupid.

I'll give this few more chances, but I'm already getting fed up with it. It sucks having to manually confirm the directory despite already forcing it to acknowledge the correct one.
>> No. 25434 [Edit]
Are you using the latest version? I may be a few releases behind and still I have none of your problems.

>I like how it just starts the torrents when I add them instead of asking me if I'd like to start them and doesn't check to see if I already have the files.
I never had this happen. There's an "add in paused state" checkbox in the add torrent dialog and even a global option to do that in the settings dialog. Not autochecking for existing files is a bit of a hassle indeed, but a force re-check does the job fine..

>I also like how the directory for the files to be downloaded to didn't change despite changing it over 15 minutes ago, of which I made sure I didn't somehow mess up when I clicked 'Apply' if it was changed or not.
This used to be a problem. I think the main culprit was not Deluge, but the GTK libraries that do the location selection, the problem happened to other GTK-based software too. But it should be fixed by now.

>Also, the whole thing about being able to only select one torrent at a time is pretty stupid.
I can select many at a time, not sure what you mean.

Don't think of it like going from being a chronic procrastinator to being fairly productive. Instead focus on gradual improvement. Start out small eg "I'll spend 15 minutes reading today" do it every day and eventually it wont feel difficult.

Takes time and can be frustrating because you'll wonder "why can't I even pay attention for 15 minutes..." but it's helped me be less useless. Wasting time becomes so easy for many of us that it's like autopilot. We end up destroying all self discipline. It takes a while to build back up but it can be done.

A tiny bit of moisture wouldn't hurt the electronics as long as you let it dry a bit before use. It's good practice anyway to let it air a bit after blowing compressed air.
>> No. 25612 [Edit]
But I want to get all of the dust off. I feel blasting air through the fins would leave residual dust on them, which become nucleating sites for further dust deposition. Its tempting to get in there with a wet tissue or something.
>> No. 25613 [Edit]
Take the heatsink off, let water run through it to wash the dust away and then use the hair dryer to blow every last water droplet off.
Let the heatsink sit a bit to be sure it's dry and then put it back in. I did this a couple of times already and I never had any problems.

Today I realized that I have Atychiphobia and, if I'm not wrong, in such a degree that it has been affecting my speech. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atychiphobia
There are apparently ways to deal with it, but family has decided to come over for my birthday and my room has a bad smell I can't get rid of. And I haven't given my sister the present I promised her yet. Freaking out just a tiny bit.

Is failure physically painful as well? Happens to me. If it is, try taking a painkiller like an NSAID or something beforehand since it seems to help.
>> No. 25617 [Edit]
Used to have what we would call "performance anxiety". Mostly tied into how competitive primary school could be.
>> No. 25620 [Edit]
Failure isn't that painful, at least afterwards it's befreeing. It's more like performance anxiety but with everyday life things. Making friends, cooking for others, hosting parties, playing competitive games, talking to people, handing in essays, participate in family matters without being asked to, writing on image boards before having lurked for years, writing in IRC, doing something without asking for instructions, initiating contact, playing the piano, participating in school related activities and speaking up for myself. I have feared and still do fear failure when it comes to all these things. Instead of trying with the risk of failing, it was much easier to never be liked nor to give it a shot.

Since it began very early on, somewhere along the line these cases were just being seen as me being me. A kid can't possibly have any problems after all. Sorry if this goes a little beyond "Daily Report", I just want to mention two instances in which I was somehow freed from the fear: Once around the age of ten when a pedagog said that "for every ten times Ronaldhino makes a mistake, he may make one successful shot", after which I was able to participate in football (European), and another time when I was trying never to smile always hiding my teeth in fear that I would be laughed at for it looking stupid, and then my worst enemy said to me: "You should just smile, hiding it looks weird". Since then I've always smiled with my teeth out in the open.

That's weird. I too avoided smiling/laughing at a certain point, for fear of coming off as easy to please/not cool. But then my not-friend commented that I looked dumb whenever flexing my facial muscles to hide a smile. So I stopped. It was no use anyway, kids say some really dumb/hilarious shit.

Around june there was this dog in front of my house that started to bark literally all day, from 8AM to like 20.
It was making me crazy and it just gave me another reason to sleep at day. Ruined my summer.
It stopped barking so much a month or so ago but now it started again, been at it for 2 hours.

i've gone a diet. it's been about a week.

I've reduced total food intake as well as cut out foods with refined sugar.

I think managing blood sugar levels is the key.

Simple kibbled oats and water porridge for breakfast. roggebrood . crispbread with cheese and fermented sausage. small amount of fruit. wholegrain bread with ham and pickle. diet coke.

I'm hungry. But the stomach needs to shrink.

The main issue is looking at why i eat in the first place, boredom mainly. I have not much to live for so why not just eat shit?

Well I feel better physically even after a short time but i'm still bored as hell.
>> No. 25666 [Edit]

Don't know where you started but I recommend adopting a diet slowly.

My current approach which seems to be working is slowly fixing my bad eating habits. It doesn't lead to quick results but it's easier to stick with. Reasoning being it took a long time to gain all these shitty eating habits so they'll take a while to get rid of and replace.

Feels like I will never shoot a real gun
>> No. 25695 [Edit]
Same, kind of. I've always wanted to try a handgun but here you need a special class of licence and to belong to a gun club. Naturally I could never be bothered with any of that. I used to have a longarm licence though, but I let it lapse. My dad says I should get it renewed so he has someone to give his guns to when he dies.

I probably will at some point. Longarm licenses are fairly easy to get here, but the guns are usually expensive (except for SKS). Also, if you are a gun owner the police can pretty much search you whenever they want with no reason. Being a libertarian, this pisses me off.

I'm in exactly this situation but for a different reason. I have to housesit my parents' place while they are overseas during January. My only laptop is an eight year old Thinkpad so that's all I will have there. I suppose it shouldn't be that bad given that when I have the option of playing games (i.e. the entire rest of my life) I'm too lazy and end up doing nothing but messing around on the internet. But I wanted to have the option, you know? I suppose I could play Dwarf Fortress, but it would probably start to slow down pretty quickly as the fortress got bigger.

I'll try to get Guan Yinping tomorrow. Funny enough, fighting her is easier than fighting the one before her. 124150 is to much damage to take, and even though I could half it with an active skill, 60000+ damage is still too much for a team that has to be primarily Physical or Healer type.

I hated that site because it was so pathetic. Just a bunch of people whining about women and acting completely childish. I was banned once because I told them that I was a virgin by choice (which is kind of true); they were just so intolerant.

And this is coming from a guy who is a Level 31 wizard. If even legitimate wizards don't like that fucking site, what is to say about it?

Supposedly someone either on here or Hikkichan stated that about 20% of the userbase actually had sex at one point. I can't confirm, but I can't quite deny it, either. It just seemed to be the place where frustrated losers went to.

The only good thread on that site was when someone posted about his experiences in prison. He said that the prison rape thing was complete bullshit, at least where he was.

I was listening to embedded, which was posted there christmas 2013 and I guess I'm thinking back to the old days. When we still had the Glass eyed dog spammer, when TheNewStoryTeller was still posting there, when the Minecraft server was up. Back before the Depression Quest false flag, before copypastes's betrayal, before all the IRC drama. Wizardchan was really something back in the day, and it being gone is making me depressed, thinking about how great it was a year ago.

I watched Stalker (Сталкер).
I didn't understand a lot of the philosophy, but I still really liked it.

I especially liked the very reflective, meditative mood. The long takes, silence, and ethereal music made me feel at peace a little bit. Also, the Stalker is a Brohno in some aspects; it is very clear that the quiet Zone is the place where he feels at home, far away from society. His speech at the climax about why he brings suffering people to the Zone was beautiful and made me tear up a little bit.

Not a better place, just new (partly forced) experiences, I'm still a NEET and I still love not to do shit, but at some point in life the vast majority of us will have to change this, even if just thinking about all of this things makes me feel literally sick.

I can't stand my family anymore and they can't stand me either, they don't want to pay for any of my shit, we fight almost everyday and there's no escape, no other safe way to go with my resources, that's why I'll end up doing ilegal stuff to carry on at least for some time.

I think we discussed this at some point, not sure if around here or in /jp/ back in the day, but if you take a look at our demographics you'll find that most people are 16-25 maybe 30 top, you'll rarely find someone older that managed to stay as a NEET without major problems.

Apparently it got out already. It was pretty big and traps proved useless. I almost caught it in the living room with the help of my dog, but we failed. However, I isolated it in my room and opened the window; the motherfucker was making things fall for a while (I feared for my figs, so secured a few of them) but it's been silent for a while, so it either got out already or made itself at home; we'll see about it in the morning.

My mobo is still PCIE 1.0, the GTX 650 I bought is 3.0. People say it should work and Nvidia swears by their backwards compatibility, but it still makes me nervous. I'm also troubled by the arrangement of PCIE pins of my PSU, as I remember reviews said it wasn't the most clever back when I bought it. I'm also concerned about size, as reviews pointed out it's quite big and some people had to move HDDs around to fit it in, not sure I'd have that kind of space inside.
I forgot the model of the monitor, but it mentions no cables in the package contents and only has HDMI and D-sub ports(I'm used to DVI at this point). The GPU I bought lists a D-sub port so I should be covered until I get an HDMI cable, but I don't know, finding a GPU with D-sub wasn't particularly easy, what if they send another revision that has no d-sub?

You should've done way more research, I spent like half a year reading up before building my first computer.
>> No. 25870 [Edit]
This is not a from-scratch build. More like an emergency upgrade, since I needed a new monitor and everything in the market nowadays(fuck widescreen marketeers, seriously) is either unacceptably small or too big, forcing me into upgrading the GPU aswell.
I'd love being able to get a completely new and well-planned rig, but as it stands I don't have that kind of money and my parents will only help me with upgrades to replace dying pieces.
>> No. 25871 [Edit]
Gfx cards that don't have a d-sub port will usually include an adapter (dvi->vga) in the package. You can often find specific measurements on size either on spec sheets or review sites, which you then can use to check with your chassis.

Reading the wiki article on PCIe, it mentions that an increase in power requirement can break compatibility between 2.1 and 1.0 (1.1 boards hit with this issue generally have bios updates available). However it doesn't mention if this potential issue carries over to 3.0. I'd day the chances are low of incompatibility, but there seems to be a possibility. Regarding the pins, the only thing that matters is what's on the end of the 6-pin and/or 8-pin headers intended for gfx cards. There's pictures on said wiki article. For extra insurance, most gfx cards will include regular 4-pin adapters, so there shouldn't be a problem either way, as long as you have enough headers.

I woke up with terrible, terrible stomach pain and I'm still having it right now. health care is free here but fuck that, they had me waiting 9 hours last time I went to the hospital, so my only option is to visit my family doctor, but he doesn't open until the next 2 hours. So I hope I don't die. I'm pretty sure it has something to do with those b12 tablets I took.

Depending on location, it could be appendicitis.

It's most certainly not that as I don't even have half of the symptoms of appendicitis. My family doctor was closed for Orthodox Christmas so I had to tough it out, for the most part the pain is gone now but I do wonder what the fuck was it, it was horrible.

I believe I most likely have Irritated Bowel Syndrome as it's the one that fits my symptoms the most.

If it helps, the most odd thing that happened today was when I tried to take a Calcium Carbonate Tablet (Antacid) I immediately had to vomit seconds after I put it in my mouth, making my stomach hurt even more.

I'll make a follow up post tomorrow hopefully it really is nothing.

I was frying an egg for lunch and left it cooking while I was in the computer. Suddenly I hear a loud pop coming from the kitchen.

I'm starting to drift away from Japanese things. I haven't watched anime in a year. I was reading manga but now have come bored of it. I no longer have a interest in video games. VNs have also become boring. I have to force myself to play them.

Today I watched Disney Tarzan, The Breakfast Club, some Blackadder and The IT Crowd which all have been more enjoyable than Japanese things I have been into. I also watched Breakfast at Tiffany's but stopped watching twenty minutes into it because it was boring. I learnt a whole language for Japanese media and now I'm drifting away.

I've also got into drinking but the only Japanese alcohol I've had is Asahi 辛口 which in a bit more expensive than others. I normally get under $10 local wine and cheap local beer. But I've only brought 27 types of alcohol. I hope this post isn't deleted and I'm banned.

I have so many anime, manga and VNs in my backlog that I kind of what to read but I just don't feel like it. Maybe my Western phase will recede and I'll be into Japanese things like I used to.
>> No. 25911 [Edit]
>I hope this post isn't deleted and I'm banned.
Why would it be? I suppose I can only speak for myself, but I think a lot of us have drifted away from everything except browsing imageboards and sleeping. I haven't so much as read a book in the past two years. I try to watch anime sometimes but I generally can't make it through an episode. The only remotely "hobbyish" thing I still do is listen to music, because it doesn't require any effort.
>> No. 25912 [Edit]
Ever since I started watching anime I've always had occasional break periods where I didn't watch anything. The most recent time, I pretty much didn't watch anime for like 2 or three years, but now I am catching up on all I missed.

There's no reason to force it. You'll come back to it when your feel like it, or you'll just move on with your life, and you'll look back on it like your video game stage.

I discovered that a key on my laptop was slightly broken. Being the intelligent person that I am, I decided to look at one of the other keys for comparison and fucking snapped the little bits holding the scissor switch together. You know how Thinkpad keys have those tiny bits of plastic holding the scissor together so it doesn't flop around uselessly? I didn't, but I do now having snapped them. So now I have one slightly broken key and one fully broken key, and I'm away from my laptop graveyard so I can't replace it for a month. It's really annoying.

yeah, that happened to me once. The num lock button is now half way stuck down because of it and left ctrl is broken off on a laptop I have. On this keyboard, the V key only is clipped on to the switch on the right, so it can flip up. I've gotten used to that though.

Today my monitor and HDD went out for delivery. Some two hours later the delivery company updates the status saying the zone where I live is "subject to differentiated delivery times".
What that means is that it's a high-robbery incidence location and thus all deliveries are subject to up to a 7 business day extra time(and they might just say "fuck you, we're not delivering it, you come and pick it up" if they feel like it). Fuck that shit, seriously. Yes, it's really a high crime rate neighbourhood, but they should at least have told me that before instead of making me fucking anxious all this time and only then telling me my delivery is gonna take fucking ages.
And then later I get a message from the store where I bought the GPU saying that due to logistical problems they have none of what I ordered in stock and thus I have to pick another one. It was really a bargain, now I'm gonna have to fork $15~60 extra for the same model or a comparable one.

I managed to fix it! The one I broke, that is. I got a pin of the right diameter and heated it up with a gas lighter, then I put that through the little hole and melted it into the inside scissor thingy. I was planning to keep the pin in there and snip its ends off (then do the other side) so they would act as the bits of plastic I ripped off. But in pushing the hot pin through the switch I melted some plastic from the outside part into to the inside part, holding it together. So I did the same to the other side of the switch and put it back on the keyboard under the "menu" key instead of "A". So now it doesn't flop around like before, and it's a key I don't really use so I shouldn't break the shitty fix. If I do I'll do the pin thing properly.

So, today I found some weird videos on YT:

Some weird animated series called Senpai Club that seems to make fun of school animes a bit.

Then I find out that there's an anime called Plastic Nee-san that I didn't know about since it aired during a time when I wasn't watching any anime at all or much media at all. It's pretty strange, but I liked it and I laughed a lot.

And the last thing I found out about is this Touhou Smash fighting game that 3 people want to make.

tl;dr I get desperate too easily and a sata cable trolled me.

Tried to install Manjaro on my new HDD.
Just as I was messing with the partitions screen it began complaining it couldn't read the partition table, even though I could manage partitions and even create a new partition table just ok. Thought it was just the installer being a bitch about GPT and proceeded anyway. Then it just sat there doing nothing for some 10 minutes until I grew impatient, cancelled the installation and fired up gparted to see what's up.
That's when my butthole clenched. Input/output errors everywhere trying to read that drive. It wouldn't even appear on the list when gparted finished loading. So fine, let's reboot and see if it shows up. BIOS POSTs, shows the first drive's SMART status and just hangs. Fuck this shit, let's try again, POST, first drive goes fine but second one says SMART is ok but command failed. Shit nigga.
After some minutes of pure desperation thinking I'd have to hope warranty covers that I remembered my last drive was spewing out the same shit and I had plugged it on the same SATA cable the new one is right now, so what if?
Then I picked another SATA cable and there it was, booting just fine. The rest was smooth sailing, I'm currently downloading updates for manjaro as I write.

And to think a goddamn sata cable almost made me lose my shit. I could swear I did try that already, but now I'm inclined to get my old drive again and take a look if it's working at all with another cable.

I doubt it's ADHD. That's the kind of shit you either get diagnosed with when you're a child or you're just bulshitting for easy adderall/ritalin prescriptions.
I hate to play that card but I think it's mostly with my parents and school letting me go without any discipline at all too easily and never pushing me to the point I needed to put some effort into it.
There's other factors into it, like my general anxiety and fear of failure aswell, but I think can be traced back to my upbringing too. Anyway, my problem now.
>> No. 26015 [Edit]
Well, okay, maybe it's not ADHD or anything that you can easily label yourself with. I haven't actually been to a doctor, or diagnosed with ADD, but from reading the symptoms on wikipedia, it sure does sound like it. But is there at least a single explanation for this shit? I had a similar situation to yours, maybe that's just it; a lack of discipline in childhood and early adolescence.

Is there anything that you'd like to be doing, if you had a choice? I don't really thing there's anything I would particularly enjoy doing. That is, I haven't tried many things, but I think it's safe to say that everything sucks in one way or the other.

Also, I seem to put everything away for later, even though I never get around to doing those things. It's not that I don't want to, but it seems like I'm too addicted to immediate pleasures like browsing the web to do something else. It's terrible.
>> No. 26016 [Edit]
I don't think there's a single explanation. It's just one kind of behaviour and a fairly "high level" one at that, there's probably a ton of combinations of small factors that can result in a simmilar outcome.

And yes, that's one thing we differ in. There's a ton of things I'd rather be doing at any given time. All my backlogs are filled with stuff, there's lots of things I'd want to learn and even more stuff I began doing maybe years ago but never finished. I just can't bring myself to stop reading pointless internet discussions and on the rare occasions I start doing something useful, I can't keep doing it for long.

And yes, there's sort of a small high in browsing the internet. Just like everything else completely vanishes and when I notice it the whole day has gone away and there's no more time to do anything useful(there is, but I convince myself there isn't and keep frittering away)

I rarely really see him, but when I did he just disappeared at some point (we were gathered with aforementioned family).

I realized all his trouble probably would vanish if he got himself a 3DPD. I hate how people suddenly can change from being miserable to the everything-is-great-if-you-are-in-a-relationship, happy guy. I don't know if that actually happens, but I'd hate it if it does.

Yeah, I noticed that as well a while ago, that with normal people, most of their problems simply disappear when they get into a relationship. Well, I guess it makes sense, since anyone who can get a relationship to start with, can't really have any serious problems. But then I also think about all the unhealthy relationships people have with murderers and other such scum, and I'm at a loss.

I wonder if it would be the same with me. Sometimes I think that my life would change dramatically if I were to get a 3DPD, but on the other hand, I would have to change my life dramatically to get a 3DPD, so I'm not sure which one of those things it is. Do you think you'd stop being the way you are, if you suddenly got a 3DPD?

Today I was approached by a Red Cross recruiter, and felt daunted by her holy quest to save ebola victims et al. So then I signed a thing that makes me a monthly contributor. The only way to get off seems to be through phone calls, or maybe an email if I'm lucky. There's no mention of it on their homepage, which must be very convenient for them. I'll take this as a lesson and make a greater effort to avoid contact.

I probably wouldn't when it comes to my core, but some things would change for sure. There's no risk of that happening though. I guess that's what sucks about being human; you can't help but being attracted to 3D even if you hate it. Although if I ever were to stop taking it easy, if I ever were to get serious, if I ever were to truly enter the world of 3D, I'd leave Tohno-chan for sure. I refuse to pollute the 2D border more than necessary.

I always found it weird how imageboard communities consider watching anime to be a productive thing that you have to slog through to enjoy. If you don't enjoy watching anime enough to do it anyway, just don't watch it.

No one wants to be seen as a "casual".

then don't tell anyone how much you watch? if you finish three episodes a day, you're still watching. if you finish thirty episodes a day, you're watching more than most people.

this sort of "i have to watch anime UGHH its gonna take so long i wanna sleep instead" mentality only seems to happen on anonymous imageboards. why? it's not like people will forever associate your username with "that guy who claims he likes anime but hardly watches any", because you have no username.

only posers care about that shit, real anime pros are too busy enjoying anime and discussing it on the internet to care.
unfortunately /tc/ and a lot of the other "good" (or formerly good) websites end up with a majority population of wannabes because circumstances on the internet have made otakudom into the pose of choice for a certain subset of posers, wannabes and attention whores.

Huh? I see no problems with /so/ and never considered it to be a containment board of any kind. It's a board unique to t-c which isn't present on any other website. Also, there are no containment boards on t-c because the users here don't stick with only one board, they browse the whole site (although I know there are a few that only browse /mai/).

Also did the same with Germans, as I read somewhere that 2 million of their women got raped by communist officers from central asia after the fall of Hitler.

Yesterday my mom found a bullet on our front entrance staircase. I think I'll measure it and try to find out the caliber.

Today I got cdemu from the AUR. That's pretty unremarkable and trivial, but I it reminds me when I had to download all the source packages myself and compile everything by hand back when I wasn't on a non-Arch-based distro and it was quite laborious. Pacman and the AUR are so awesome.

With the exception of the spreading communism thing, if you think that the Nazis and their allies didn't do any of that shit, or wouldn't have, you are just delusional.

I'm not trying to defend the Soviets. Fuck them. I'm just saying that both sides were horrible; perhaps not in the same ways, but knowing how gravely inhuman both of them were, that is irrelevant.

Just about any human nation is flawed, when you get right down to it.
>> No. 26235 [Edit]
You can't compare the nazis to the soviets. The nazis did:
-V2, the first ICBM, unmanned flying object and known object to attain subspacial altitudes
-Zuse 3, the first completely automatic, programmable computer in the world (Got destroyed by bombardments in 1943)
..and much more. too lazy to look for other things rite now, these were the first things that popped up in my mind

We're probably all horrible people on some points. This is probably why some want the new age of enlightenment to be about empathy.

Nice. I bought a seven year old one last year that still gets almost four hours. I checked the battery statistics and apparently at full charge it is still holding 70% of designed capacity. I only really use the battery when I'm on the train or something, but it's nice to have.

My grandad gave me his old digital camera. Originally, he'd given it to my ten year old cousin, who complained that it didn't fit on his "selfie stick". I later found out what a selfie stick is, and I was mad about it, until I realised that the existence of selfie sticks indirectly means I got a free digital camera.

I'm going to use it to take high quality figure photos. Well, relatively high quality ones. It isn't a top-tier camera or anything, just a consumer digital one. Takes far nicer pictures than my phone does, though.

Today was my last day of vacation after three months of pretty much doing nothing at all and browsing imageboards all day while at it. I kind of feel sad about it, because, like every other vacation before, I had various plans I wanted to complete, like movies to watch and books to read, and I didn't do literally anything related to those things. It's always the same, going into vacations feeling like I'm going to conquer the world and change my life, and get out of it feeling defeated, miserable and depressed. I'll probably need some weeks to get around how it feels to go out every day and talk to others face to face.

Also, I've been learning about WWII naval battles recently because of Kantai Collection, and I was surprised to see how the generall dynamic of naval warfare was back in those days. I wonder if it would change too drastically these days if there was another world war, since we have an enormous amount of communication novelties compared to the first half of the twentieth century.

My preparations are almost done.

In some days I am gonna be freed from all the worldly burden.

Finally, I've got enough of it and have lived long enough with 28,5 years that I can say that there is 0 positive things about me and there is no future awaiting for me that is worth suffering for.

I only sorry for my mother. Wished I'd won in the Lottery to enable her a carefree life. She deserved it. Instead she still has to enslave herself in a blue collar job with her crumbling health.
Sorry, but I will leave a bit of money behind, which is enough to pay some months worth of rent, which is pretty much nothing in the end, but still.

Time is running out, the state is hunting me down to collect my debts.
It's gonna be my last "fuck you" to the state and society.

Parked up in my car with a cup off coffee and a jumbo sized biscuit. Was dunking chunks in the coffee, got to the last chunk and dropped it. It went in the mess of the center console. Tried to clean it up but the soggy bit broke away.

In my haste to catch it i ended up knocking it and getting bits of soggy coffee biscuit all over my clean clothes and the seat and at the same time knocking the cup of coffee onto the floor in the back, spilling everywhere.

No need to get angry. just brushed the mess off me and drove home.

I entered my first smash tournament today, expecting to have a good time. Only to lose hard after my first win and being forced to be picked up just before the finals due to a miscalculation schedule, it would have been the most hype moment of the day.

I feel fucking depressed now as that was literally the only thing I wanted to see after I lost. I'm slowly coping with it though, by tomorrow I probably won't even give a shit.

It doesn't help that my only friend who said that he was entering the tournament changed his mind later on and told me the most bullshit excuse as to why he wasn't going. I guess we were not as close as I thought.

You'll be doing unchallenging, meaningless pleb work. If you are exposed to the public you will be subject to assorted manifestations of sadism, irrationality, bewildering modes of interpretation and insults and abuse of the order of those that imageboards ironically emulate. If you're in retail, get ready for an endless stream of thickies who believe in the importance of your retail script and will openly berate you after you decide to not ask for their airmiles card when they've either displayed it or have already interacted with you 5 times. Can't forget the ubiquitous assumption that everyone in retail necessarily as an IQ of <90. Never again.

This is pretty much true. The best you can hope for is decent coworkers.
>> No. 26591 [Edit]
As an addendum.

Everyone will hate you all the time, regardless of what you say or do. No exceptions. Customers, managers and coworkers alike. It's absolutely imperative to expect this - you must condition your body to thrive on it.

Some people will take particular offense to your existence and expel feces into your open mouth whenever given the opportunity to do so. Expect outrageous allegations all the time, again, from coworkers and customers alike because everyone wants that promotion to fruit clown and will manually extract the viscera of anyone who presents opposition. Every 100 customers you have the sheer misfortune of enduring, 2 will commit their existence to destroying yours. Your only recourse to this is a vacant smile and a handful of generic transactional prompts.

You will never be able to get more than 20 hours a week. The embattled husks that have exchanged their existence for the honor to toil in the pleb bin are at max, working 16 more hours than you. Transporting yourself to said bin will invariably burn up 20% of the pebbles you earn for the exchange of your time and dignity.

Did you guys see the eclipse today?
It happened at 8-9am here. First, I can't remember the last time I woke up this early. In fact, I just didn't sleep at all. It wasn't a very pleasant experience, specially since they set up the observation spot in a nearby grade school (the only one in the whole city). Imagine a lot of kids, a lot of noise and excitement.

>The whole thing was solved but one corner
I'm just getting into it, but I understand that condition is mathematically impossible from a correct initial state (mainly because it's always full faces what you are rotating between any give algorithm), so the cube must have been busted to be unsolvable. The most experienced enthusiasts can identify such impossible states just by looking and don't even bother, cause they know they're being tricked; that was the case of Wall-E's cube, as discussed in a certain forum.
>> No. 26616 [Edit]
I gave it a check and apparently that can happen unintentionally too, when the cube is poor quality and at some point a single piece moves more than it should under heavy use as in speedcube. It's what they say that happened to this guy:

Does anyone else of the problem of not finishing what you start? Or starting so much stuff you just become overwhelmed?

I just had the biggest argument break out in one of my sites. Threats, stress and drama, all the good stuff. Then bans and locking/deleting.

Can you believe what some people are willing to say in public, fully identified? Some of the things anonymous do are pushing the envelope, but that there are people distributing unsolicited insults with a name is a different ballpark (often embarassing themselves in the process). This wasn't even about controversial topics, like racism. Just plain old hate. I shouldn't be surprised, but the bigger they get, the more impressive it looks.

Today I revisited an old game which I hadn't played or heard about in various years. I listened to the OST while remembering how great the game was as an experience back in those days. I also looked for pictures of it in boorus. Since it has been out for a very long time there was not a single new image compared to when I last looked for them many years ago, so it was an interesting experience, like revisiting a childhood memory's place. I also masturbated to the same pictures I once masturbated many years ago, which was also very emotional.

I'm only lightly nearsighted, but it definitely will make a difference for reading signs or whatnot, even indoors. I'm looking forward to getting them, as now that I know about it, the blurriness really does bug me.

It's definitely noticeable, especially now that I'm aware of it. I guess I just didn't think too much of seeing a bit blurry before because I simply attributed it to being tired or something and I was used to it.

I went with my cousin laptop shopping today. People in my family seem to think I'm some expert at computers which I'm not but I help out anyway. Knowing what she uses the computer for I say she should just get the cheapest and it will be fine. Currently she uses some really old laptop with maybe 2 cores and 90GB hard drive and this works fine for her. Can't remember the RAM. But shes considering a i7 laptop with 8GB of RAM. I tell her she shouldn't bother but it's still an option even though a i5 and 4GB is over $200 dollars cheaper. I tell her I have a laptop with i5 and 4GB and I even play games on it. You don't play games or anything, get the cheap one. But in the end she didn't buy one. We went to three stores. I said three times she should get this $699 Acer one (the cheapest one she was considering) but didn't buy anything.

One place we went to, the sales women first asked if she streams stuff like on youtube. She said yes, so the sales women went straight to a $999 laptop with 8GB of RAM saying that it's the most popular model and what you need for youtube. I mean, damn.

Camo is on the opposite end of the spectrum of formal wear. Military surplus is worn since it tends more durable than most of the stuff you'd find in a department store for a much lower price.

I've done something like that before. I've even left the post ready to be submitted for a day or longer because I forget about it and don't touch the tab for a long while until I start wondering why that's there, and then when I see it and read that irrelevant garbage I just close it and check the front page in another tab for any new posts.

I've never let an open tab waiting for a response because I know Tohno-chan is a slow traffic site. When I write about my day, I do so only because I wish somebody out there would ask why something was so or comment about it. I guess I want some attention since I can't openly talk about my life with anyone else but the internet, and while I do know that rarely anyone will ever respond it still serves as somewhat comforting to know that there is a probability that someone else out there cares for something about me.

I tried to find people on twitch who I could relate to. Being a 4channer for years, I have a certain way of speaking. But even harmless jokes lead to threats of banning.

Yesterday, finally called to ask about the job I applied for. I was told I would be notified of the results whether I got hired or not. Long story short, I wasn't hired, so I feel incredibly defeated and worthless, since I had a lot riding on it.

I lifted for the first time yesterday. I tried to go at time where it would be less crowded but there were a lot of people there. Felt like everyone there was judging my shit form and the fact that I was lifting baby weights.
Also I can't sleep because I'm sore everywhere, especially my lower back. At least it feels good that I tried instead of giving up before I even started.
>> No. 26873 [Edit]
I only lifted for a few months so my advice might be worthless. When I first went I aimed for times between 9am and 3pm. They can still be busy at these times because housewives and retired people go then. I found at 12 noon there was almost no one. If it's a 24 hour gym you could go in the middle of the night, but I've never did that.

If you're worried about your form ask one of the gym supervisors or whatever they're called. Some of the advise will contradict what you've read online, like one guy said I should use the smith machine even though everything I've read says stay away from them. But some advice is good like look straight while squatting.

As with the baby weights, everyone has to start somewhere, as everyone probably has told you. Even if you start squatting the bar and increase 2.5 or 5 kgs every time, you'll be squatting a plate in a few weeks. I remember one time I was doing 40~50kg bench press and the guy next to me was doing 100kg.

With really bad lower back pain, uh, I don't know. Are you keeping your back straight when deadlifting? If you do over head press, make sure you squeeze your butt to make sure your back is straight. That was the problem for me. I could only do 35kg OHP.

But I gave up. The last few times I was squatting 70~80kgs a felt a slight pain in my lower back and it scared me. I thought I had good form but still getting lower back pain and I thought I was going to break my back. I also biked there and I'm scared of biking on the roads and I had to cross two busy roads to get to the gym.

Anyway, this post ended up way longer than I thought but I hope it helped. 4chan's /fit/ board might give some good advice. But exercise is good! I run now with my dad and it's enjoyable. The feeling of satisfaction in lifting is far more than running. Like if you're squatting and just having the weight on your back makes you think 'shit there is no way I can do this' then you do three sets, damn it feels good. But when you fail a set it feels like shit. Anyway, 頑張れ~

Fantastic to hear you tried lifting for the first time.
Do not worry about the amount of people, they're all there for the same reason you are. Your form was probably shit for your first time if you ever question your form is good ask the guy or chick next to you to check it. Nobody cares what weight you're at if you try. Find a lift schedule and stick with it, get plenty of sleep, protein and you'll make it anon.

Not worthless at all. 4chan's /fit/ sticky will be a good read for him.

I watched a few family movies with my sisters. We watched The Bean Movie, Beethoven and It Takes Two. My favorite was the Bean Movie, followed by It Takes Two. We also watched three episodes of The Flash. I don't really like it. It's really bland. At one point they wanted me to watch Teen Wolf, which I watched three episodes and it was shit.

One quote which I remember from Bean is, "If you do nothing, nothing bad will happen", something like that.

Today I realized that I hate being alone. I dont care about many friends I have but that I have friends I can rely on, that i can trust. I was immature to scorn the world, hating people without knowing them. Sure there are awful people out there, but there are a lot of good people out there and I realize that I am one of the awful people by hating everyone. I want to change. I will change in order to continue living. I thought I didnt fit anywhere but I realize that I was putting walls on for anyone who said hi. God, I wish I wasnt so scared

I used to be the exact same way, and when I made the realization that I was judging people, who are just as much people as me, without knowing them, I realized how awful that is. It's good you realized it and decided to change.

I'm still judgmental at times, but I've found that I have become a lot more accepting towards everyone, and it feels good.

Thanks for the advice, I really appreciate it. I've actually been browsing /fit/ for a while now, and it's been pretty helpful. As for deadlifting I made sure to keep my back straight. Now that it's been a few days I'm sure that my lower back pain was only DOMS. Scared me a bit because I never had DOMS there before. It made me realize how weak my back was; probably from sitting most of the time. I'm still scared as fuck I might snap my back but I'm going to progress with baby weights until I get my form down perfect. Also, I agree with you on exercise being enjoyable. I don't know what it is, but I can't go a day without doing some sort of exercise. Otherwise I just feel tired and sluggish the entire day.

Thanks man, that's pretty encouraging. I'm always think that people are judging me, but if the situations were reversed I wouldn't care, or rather I'd respect the person for trying. Also I've been eating well and trying to set up a better sleep schedule since I started, funny how it's been sort of like a chain reaction. It just feels really really good to work towards something for once.

I failed (I passed it but I want a better mark) another fucking exam. I don't know what's wrong with me, I study, study, find whatever I'm studying easy, then I do the exam and bam, there is always something I don't know. On the positive side of things, I think I found the balls to talk to my father and tell him to stop asking me about my uni.
It's weird, I'm starting to think I need to take every test twice to pass it, now that I'm getting used to it things are getting better.

Now I'm depressed and will spend the next few days drinking, I hope I don't puke because I live alone and I would have to clean. Well it's not really depression, it's more like wanting to do nothing.

Would be better if I found the balls to kill myself though.

>Now I'm depressed and will spend the next few days drinking, I hope I don't puke because I live alone and I would have to clean.
This was always my post-exam tradition as well. The problem is you can never get as drunk as you would like without vomiting. It's kind of cruel how alcohol is the one easily obtainable drug in most of the world, yet it's such a shitty one.
I remember when I failed the last exam I needed to finish undergrad, I was offered a supplementary exam which was pass/fail. It was a month after the initial exam yet in typical fashion I did nothing for three and a half weeks, then "studied" with frequent internet breaks. So I was in danger of failing it and having to spend another semester doing it again, yet I still procrastinated.
Anyway, I passed and I've done nothing since. I don't want to live but I can't bring myself to die. I think you have to do it in a way that doesn't trigger an instinctual response. So jumping/trains/hanging are out, something like helium or a heroin overdose would be better.

Winston turned a little sideways in his chair to drink his mug of coffee. At the table on his left the man with the strident voice was still talking remorselessly away. He held some important post in the fiction department. It was just a noise, a quack-quack-quacking. Every word of it was pure orthodoxy, pure Ingsoc. Winston had a curious feeling that this was not a real human being but some kind of dummy. It was not the man's brain that was speaking, it was his larynx. The stuff that was coming out of him consisted of words, but it was not speech in the true sense: it was noise uttered in unconsciousness, like the quacking of a duck.

Today was my birthday.
Was woken up by my mom blasting a really really old birthday(?) song on repeat.
Had breakfast at Denny's, she told them like five times it was my birthday (even though I didn't want her to) and they never showed up.
My dad and uncle came to visit from out of town, an hour after when they said they'd be here. Guess because it was raining. Because it was raining he didn't want to get his nice cars wet so we had to cram into his tiny two seat work truck.
Got no presents, but my dad took me to an overpriced restaurant where I got a $14 hamburger. We played pool and I cut myself on the table somehow, and lost every game including one where I didn't sink a single ball. I also got a few bucks from my dad, but he kept guilt tripping me about mother's day and basically told me to use that money to buy her something.

The world feels like its tearing itself a new one where I am. I'm getting EBS and my phone's going off like crazy for flood warning, rain is flying sideways and thunder is striking right outside. All I can do it take it easy.

I changed my user account picture today, I know it sounds like nothing but I've spent hours looking for pictures. I went from Hata to Elie.
It's a shame the game is not in english, I really should study Japanese.

It's not just you. This is why I gave up on team based games entirely - outcomes are wholly determined by a team's concentration of shitty players.

There are multiple reasons why people are consistently worse than you across games. A persistent denomination of kids and retards constituting the playerbase is the most obvious, but it's usually just attributable to most people having less playtime. Team games are always more casualized and as a result people play them for recreation in their downtime. You're likely playing them because you simply have nothing better to do with your time.

I keep having dreams about work or school, and it's really fucking annoying. I either end up feeling completely stressed out in the dream, or wake up feeling uneasy and anxious. Why can't I dream about my waifu? I've been with her for years, and maybe have have 6 or 7 dreams with her in them.

I've been having dreams about going back to college and high school as well. In those dreams, I have the common sense that going back to college won't do anything for me and that I need to go to a community college/trade school and pick up a marketable trade. In my dreams, college is essentially a day care center that parents drop their young adult children at (this actually isn't far from the truth).

The high school dreams are a bit different. I know full well that I'm too old to be there, and I don't even attend half of the classes (something you can't do in high school); in those dreams I often worry about what my grades are because I never do the work.

I'm too old to have these dreams. I wonder why I have them.

I've a bunch of dreams about college, they all follow the pattern of mixing high-school and college people I know, setting is my current college but with some weird or magic twist, I remember in one you had to swim through one of those pools filled with balloons for kids to reach a class.

I've been looking what is taught in a herbal techniques bachelor. Some of the stuff is interesting but it's just another bookmark in my 'stuff I want to learn when I'll have time (and will) folder'.

Still job searching. Lots of pressure from my parents, but I can't find much. Meh.

Also lost a friend yesterday after he kept spewing a bunch of contrived ford driver shit at me, and how he hates waifus. A shame too, because I thought he was open-minded about it enough to not be so ruthlessly against it. That's what I get for being too open I suppose.

It kind of boggles my mind how some people can't fucking get it. It's like trying to convince a gay guy to like women; It's not going to fucking work, and instead makes them feel inferior.

Like the big dumb idiot I am, I went to Gamefaq and spoilered myself all the choices and events I missed so far in Atelier Rorona. Now I'm angry at myself for the spoiler and annoyed because of all the events I missed.

It's usually never a good idea to tell people much of anything about yourself. Even if waifuism or even just using the word 'waifu' to describe cute 2D girls isn't even anywhere near the weirdest thing at all, people will still find a way to end up against it.

Anyway, to remain on topic: I currently smell like a dead frog. I have no idea how I managed this odor.

Today I plan on trying to gather the remaining materials for my GOD armor in MH4U (with some side quests to help randoms while I fill myself with courage to take on Rajang), play that new stage that showed up in my loli squid game, suck at a puzzle game, and do whatever the hell else I feel like doing.

No wait, I did get the ending I just picked the wrong one. Christ I'm dumb.

I just masterbated after a week of being unable to. It feel wonderful compared to when I did it daily. Only downside is it took almost 4 tissues to clean up.

I've had pretty intense ones after 2-3 days or so, but damn, a week? Last time I went a week without fapping was years ago. Hell even on my 1 week vacation last year out of state, I still did it in the bedroom. What kept you held up for a week?

I'm living with a roommate that hangs out outside the door to my room so I have to wait for him to go to sleep before I can even think about masterbating. But my job is exhausting and requires me to get up relatively early so I usually fall asleep before he does.

One week is long but I've gone 3 weeks before during recruit training, that ended when I finally found a private place to masturbate away from the other recruits. It was the most glorious and largest ejaculation I ever felt.

Went a few weeks without the internet. Never again. It was awful. I've gained a renewed appreciation for 2D girls, anime, video games and internet life in general since getting back online. Without it I'm nothing.

I fucked up and instead of using eight bucks, I ended having to use 20. It's all because I was too hasty to look properly and too stupid to do things right. I really hate this, but this is worth it. I'm having fun with this dlc.

Sometimes I imagine that I should visit Tohno-chan less frequently, maybe even once a week. I become constantly depressed when there are no new post in the boards I frequent.

I know how you feel, the only thing that stops me from browsing tohno 24/7 is the lack of traffic to quench my thirst for posts

In other news today I finally received all 100 of my patches tonight. Now I need to do is setup a payment method and finalise my order sheet then I can accept orders for it on the other chan.
