What have you done today? Anything you'd like to share?

I'll take appropriate meassures if it turns out that we already have a similar thread.

Mowed the part of the lawn that isn't a swamp due to all the rain we had here during the weekend, watched episode 17 of Steins;Gate, installed a few mods for Minecraft (the Better Than Wolves mod doesn't seem to get along well with several mods) and took a nap until it was time for dinner.

I fell asleep around 7;00 AM (didn't really "went to bed" cause I hardly leave it); woke up a while ago, at 5:30 PM; ate (a bit) with my family and now I'm back into my room, lying on my bed, laptop on my belly... and believe or not, I do am tired so I might -try to- sleep a bit.

I've never modded minecraft myself, but I've heard the guys who make that mod are total assholes and it wouldn't surprise me if it was made to conflict with other mods on purpose. Try yogbox instead

Went to sleep at 5. Woke up at 8:40. Got on the bus at 9:05. Slept through class from 10:00 to 11:26. Missed the bus at 11:29. Read K-On! 1 in Japanese for an hour waiting for the next bus. Got on the bus, head down to avoid somebody, at 12:29. Walked home, arrived about 13:00. Tried to sleep while watching assorted old episodes of anime without subs for 5 hours. I felt like I was probably too tired to enjoy new episodes. Picked a couple people up at 17:30. Here I am at 18:30. Pretty uneventful day so far. Maybe I'll try to sleep again.

I'm not trying to brag about the Japanese stuff. That's just what consumes my life right now. Learning and/or absorbing Japanese.

got up at noon, had a muffin with some shojo anime on the tv, shower after mom got home, watched a anime ova with while eating a subway sandwich she brought.
played a older videogame for a few hours untill my room warmed up, stood in the hallway pressed against the wall of with my room on the other side for 15 min or so as I listened to the sound of my clock. posted a bunch of stupid stuff here, did some modding of another older game (woot, the town now has a kfc) took some photos of stuff I was planing on selling online. played more of that game for a few more hours till my room warmed up again, let a fan in front of my open door and tryed to deal with it as I posted more stupid stuff here, more modding, more posting..

tldr, I wasted yet another day of my life.

It's nice to hear that you had a good birthday. Happy birthday late in.

Today I made sure to have a relaxed day, so to make up for the rather eventful day that was yesterday. That is listening to music, watching lighthearted things, eating fruit, sorting stuff; thinking, acting, playing and talking casually, taking it easy - enjoying various things.

I'm preparing for tomorrow. "Family and Friends" are going to go eat together and I'm preparing myself for the answers I'm going to come up with for the inevitable:

"Why don't you have a 3DPD?"
"Why don't you have a job?"
"Why aren't you in school?"
"Why haven't you moved out yet?"
"Why don't you have any hobbies [we're interested in]?"

Such is life.

I made some spreadsheets today. One for video games I want to play and their cost/download size, one of fall's anime, one for blurays of anime that I need to download to replace TV versions. It's all really in vain though, I don't have money for games, hardware to play the games, or hard drives to store the anime.

Then I watched the new episodes of Steins;Gate, Kaiji, Morita-san and Nyanpire.

My Dad's 3DPD came back from her overseas trip a few days ago, and she has been staying here ever since...has she moved in? It really irritates me because I pay half the rent here, and she is what you would describe as a complete "normal" so I've just been avoiding her.
Anyway, thats why I was relieved that I had to work yesterday. I had honey chicken for lunch. I really look forward to lunch times at work. When I got home the kitchen was a mess so I just ate snack food for dinner. Then I listened to an audiobook for a few hours before bed. Honestly I feel like I am living the dream.

We go to a wedding today, and my mom said I don't need to go if I don't really want. This made my dad angry, and he said maybe we should just keep a chart and count how many days I don't step foot outside. For some reason this almost made me cry

Tried to do something to stem the tide of insects getting into my room. It seems they're getting in through cracks between the wall and the floor, and near the sink. I have no idea what they could be after - the place gets cleaned pretty thoroughly and there's no food laying around. Maybe it's just the heat.

I'm going to start watching that Penguin series. I like penguins, so it should be pretty good.

Went to the wedding, and had to deal with my brother constantly asking me how hot I think the girls there are. When I respond with indifference he asks "Don't you notice these things?", so I'm pretty sure he thinks I'm gay. Oh well!

Being gay is great! You don't have to deal with anything related to getting a girl and establishing a family. That's all in the public eye, what you feel personally you can keep to yourself. I'm pretty sure your brother or whoever wouldn't ask whether x guy is smoking hot or not.

got up around 10 because of my alarm, but stayed on the coach for another hour just because there's nothing better to do.
had a muffin as I watched some shojo anime on the tv.. damn I do that a lot..
watched a old movie a game I had been playing was based off of.
not much else aside from sitting in a dark room in front of my pc (becuase my mom keeps bitching at me for leaving my light on)
although I did get in some yuru yuri, that was like the best part of the day...

more or less the same for the days between posts.
only highlights would be my mom forcing me to call my dad for his b-day, which was a month ago and hearing him give me crap about not having a job, and the animu crap on my car which he told me to take off.
mom been bitching at me extra about not leaving my room, since the mother of one of my old friends from before I became a shutin died, and she thinks the same might happen to me since she was also inactive, but she was also 3 times my age and 400lb, I wonder if it makes me a bad person that I not only didn't care that much (but do wonder how her kid took it) and I wondered how they would stuff her into a coffin, if they make double wide graves ect.
Mom took some money of mine to buy herself a birthday gift, which kind of bugged me, not becuase she never gets me anything on mine, but becuase I had already ordered something for her which she told me to get her a few days before, that and the gift was a new phone, and a few months ago I bought her a new cellphone which was like 150+, I forget exactly.

Had a cable guy show up, seemed my mom upgraded our contract with my isp, I frantically tryed to hide as many figs and animu stuff as I could, but there's just so much crap here I gave up and tried to keep him out, guy probably thought I had a drug lab in my room from how much I tried to talk him out of coming in here, I thought I made it, untill the end of his visit when he said he needed to check the modem.
looking at me you'd think my dog just died after being hit with defeat as he went in, I couldn't bare to see someone else in my room.. he couldn't have robbed me blind, to top it off, he wanted to use my computer to check the Internet connection, but I got him to leave it by saying I already did just before he went in.
As he left he told me I have a cool room, and that hes also a pretty big gamer, I'd rather he not have said anything..
My pride felt as if it had been gang raped in a back alley.

and now I feel like crap for blogging here..

I think I'm losing it physically. Been having the occasional headache in addition to a consistent, but not all that debilitating, pain in my left wrist and left... foot wrist if that's what it's called. Also my eyes feel really weird and when I've been reading I noticed things are getting blurrier and I sometimes see sets of the same by each other. It's odd describing this all, but I am getting pretty worried.

Ankle?

Have you been taking anything? Painkillers or Panadol or something? Try taking a walk around, or just do some wrist and ankle stretches/exercises.

Most important is probably to get off your computer for a day, it is probably causing you eye strain and headaches. Just go have a rest, eat a bit and have some peace and quiet, it is possible you are just overstimulated.

Hope this helps out bro.

My mother told me earlier I need to start seriously thinking about what I'm going to do with my life (I'm 21). I would tell her it's hard for me to think about getting a job and such things when I don't really want to live anymore anyway, but that would just upset her.

Woke up stupidly early, had a pop tart, sat down at my laptop and found some torrents finished, sang bad karaoke of anime OPs in the shower, had a sandwich, posted on tohno-chan a bit, fapped in girls' clothes, suffered some bipolar-related angst, family drama, read some comics, watched some more of Zeta Gundam, and went back to the internet.

tl;dr - Nothing productive.

Stayed home sick though I really didn't need to (no illness, just felt bad / exhausted). I enjoyed the day off (video games hooray) but am kicking myself because I feel like I took my slacker attitude too far and I'm gonna pay for it.

I've been sick for 5 days now, probably a flu. I'm having these really vivid dreams (one included Tohno-Chan but it wasnt a website; it was like an image board in real life). For some reason I started re-reading House of Leaves. Now I keep waking up with bedsheets soaked with sweat. Also I read The Lychee Light Club which was okay but I didn't find it scary or disturbing in the slightest.

I got a smartphone which is cool because when I wake up I can check my email without stumbling over to my desk and sitting my bleary eyes in front of my PC monitor. I've hardly used my computer at all lately.

Today was perhaps my most bored day yet. I got up at 2am-ish I heard people, turns out they were drunk and I watched them in the dark and turned on a light to get them to leave as they appeared to have started fondle a car out front, they disappeared silently, then I rested, then I went to watch star trek, turns out it is the week end... I think I tried writting (if that was today, I don't even know), then I went to check if star trek was on again, oh ya it's the weekend. Then I ate, and in between I repeated checked sites for new posts, I don't think there were any. Somewhere in between I went on IRC, and looked for IRC games, there were none. I also downloaded a few classical song from /mp3/, my speakers aren't loud enough, I couldn't hear. Then I had a shower. Then I ate, then there were some more posts, then I replied, then I decided to go to sankakucomplex, that lasted about 5 minutes + 40 minutes of loading (slow PC), then I checked sites again. And somewhere between that I checked if my laptop was running a web server, it was. Then I searched how to do dynamic DNS, then I didn't do it. Now I am going to bed, or something...

Also I reread this post like 10 times, it is horrble.

Woke up at 11:30, watched some anime, played some games, thought about changing my Steam avatar but my OCD wouldn't let me decide what I liked best so I didn't, and later I'm going to watch Breaking Bad and probably play more games after that.

Today my mom, in her growing quest to persuade me to get a job, told me I should be a "home school computer teacher", which can apparently be done over the internet. I hate kids, I can't explain things worth a shit, and I have trouble interaction with people, yet she thinks that job would just be perfect for me. What the fuck



I'm also shit at computer-related things, but I don't know if she meant literally a "computer teacher" or she meant I would teach using the computer. I'm going to guess the former since she assumes me being on the internet all day means I'm an expert at all things technology, and because of that getting a job at Google is another dumb thing she was pressuring me to do.

I spent most of yesterday and today locked up in my room because my sister and her friends were having yet another get together. Like usual, they spent the entire time in the main part of the basement, just outside my room, watching TV and making too much noise for my liking. I spent most of my time during the past 36 hours either sleeping, playing Fallout: New Vegas or watching Redline (which was amazing, by the way).

Thankfully, they're all leaving for college soon, so there will be plenty of near peace and quiet here for a long time, I hope.

From what I've been able to gather, most of her friends are going out of state for college. My sister on the other hand, is going to take a semester's worth of classes before transferring somewhere else, so she'll still be living at home. However, her friends won't be here two to three times a week like they were this summer.

Speaking of school, my parents pushed me into taking a few classes at the same community college my sister is attending. Classes start next week, I'm not looking forward to it.

Been typing out ideas I had for a comic series all morning and all last night. I don't know if it'll come off as fuckawesome or dumb as shit in the end, but I'm getting really into just coming up with characters, scenarios, backstories, potential plot, etc. I think I might be getting a little too crazy into it though. I've been up for hours now, and I haven't eaten or showered or done anything else since I woke up. I want to take a break so bad, but every time I start to step away from the computer, some new idea or detail comes to mind. It's kind of awesome though. Whether my idea ends up being shit or not, I have not had this much enthusiasm about anything for a long time.

A shame I can't draw for dick and don't know any really good artists, otherwise I'd be all over actually making it.

Still at this. Got about 11 single-spaced pages and counting of ideas, notes, character bios and plot summary. Don't know why, I doubt it'll ever get made.

The only people who can't draw, are the people who won't draw. That said, there are definitely levels of quality when it comes to drawings, but even the worst art is better than no art. You will learn a lot just by trying anything and hearing what people have to say about it. Just try it.

I've heard it before, and I agree.

I just have this thing with getting nervous tremors in my hands from medication side effects. Nothing too bad, except for anything that requires precise manual dexterity. I'm still waiting to hear back from a doctor about something to take for that. There are some times it's not as bad as others though, so I'm still trying to work around it and learn to draw in my spare time, but I'm still at the beginner level.

On another note, I keep wanting to get some criticism on my writing, but I keep avoiding asking my family, and I'm not really sure who else to ask. It's one of those things that (I'm hoping) could be good in execution, but if you try to summarize the plot out loud in detail, it probably just sounds a bit complicated and stupid to anyone unfamiliar with the story or genre. Like Evangelion or Metal Gear Solid 2. Or a lot of things.

The protagonist being a trap doesn't make things any easier for that either.

I wasn't on the internet for the past two weeks, and having spent a few hours online again I am pretty underwhelmed by it all now. Pretty strange, usually I wake up around 7 and get bored around 6 PM, but now it's 10 AM and I'm already bored.

Might have to try this. I've been glued to the computer way too much the last few days. I keep forgetting to eat or shower or do anything til the early evening.

Yeah I know how you feel. When I was without internet for two weeks I was wondering about all the stuff I was missing.

There's this useful add-on for Firefox called Leechblock that can block certain websites that you pick if you feel that you are spending too much time on them. You can set it with options that allow you to visit those sites only during a certain hour/day/etc. or just block them completely if you want.

Woke up and my arms were numb, room was blazing hot and I was sore all over.
first thing I see is the lights I spent a hour or two the night before fell out of place and landed on my figs.
watched a bit of anime before trying my hand at fixing the lights, lucky no damage seems to have been done to the figures.
couldin't stand the heat anymore so I tryed closing the windows and front door to turn on the AC for a bit, but the front door, which is a sliding glass door, fell out of place as I was closing it.
fought with it a fair bit before getting pissed and tossing a small fit about how much I hate this house.
played some video games until my mom came home and gave me crap about the door.
after a lot more fighting with the door, and each other, we got it back into place (although I did most of the work.)
had lunch with some more anime, more videogames..
oh and cleaned up a little...

Today in my everlasting attempt to find a suitable job for me I decided working in the most remote place ever (because few people) would probably be a good idea, this place being Alert, Canada, a military base. So I wondered is the armed forces just retarded sign up to learn to shoot a gun crap, or can I forgo violence training and just kinda get a job. Turns out it doesn't matter because you need 5 references you've been in contact with for the last 5 years that aren't family... You know you're fucked when even the military doesn't want you.

Woke up about 3:30 AM and been surffing the web on a off since then; it's about noon right now, but it's so clouded and rainy that it doesn't really shows. My mom went to the dentist (aunt and sister are working) so I'm home alone...

I decided to finally wash my Chamber for Butterfly Re-hydration (a.k.a. tupperware), and discovered it had fungi already. After giving it a good scrub, I went picking up my dog's feces outside and noticed that some of them were covered with a highly viscous and especially revolting mucus, wich origin on her diet I'm still trying to figure out (to never-ever let her eat that again). Then the garbage truck arrived and there I am carrying all the bags to it, when the driver told me: "Sorry bro, we don't pick that one [inorganic] today." ...wich I'm sure isn't correct, but whatever. As I got back to pick the correct one, I listened at the truck starting and going away so I left that alone; I opened our second trash container (to put the gathered trash in there) and SURPRISE! a very respectable swarm of mosquitoes flew direct to my face and spread all around; I yelled and cursed while I quickly closed it again; I went getting the insecticide from inside the house, closed the nearby windows, cover my mouth and nose with a scarf and my eyes with my protective plastic glasses, and then opened it again to fumigate the fuck out of it; after it was done, I proceeded to clean all around...

Suddenly, the postman called at the door. All eight packages that arrived this time were for my mom: insanely cheap jewellery from asian sellers at eBay, for sure.

My neighbors decided that they wanted to thoroughly enjoy their subwoofer at about 5 AM this morning, so after that died down I slept later than I normally would/should (10 AM).

I think nothing in the world makes me angrier than loud, unnecessary, human-caused noises interrupting my sleep or keeping me awake. I wonder what the best approach is to confronting that sort of thing.

I read a lot of Akiha's route in Tsukihime (not finished yet), played a little New Vegas and Minecraft, caught up with steins;gate, and re-watched my favourite episode of K-On!! (14).

This is every day for me, for more than two years now. I've become so neurotic about sleep, when I can and how much I get, and it's entirely due to hellish neighbors and military aircraft.

I've had similar results recently, I spent 11 days offline, I thought about stuff, came to some good conclusions about my thoughts, then today I started looking for a job online thinking I'd be able to now, but I just can't do it. But I feel better about it for some reason.

Though during those 11 days I watched 172 episodes of shows I had seen before, this is the first real marathon of any sort in a 7~ months. And I've realized that Welcome to the NHK isn't that good, I imagine my oppinion has changed greatly because when I first saw it I had been neet for like a year 1/2, but now it's been like 4-5 or something.

Also I didn't miss being online, so I suppose this could be a potential future reoccurance, not being online that is.

Today I tried to challenge my belief that a hot drink can't possibly taste good. After multiple failed attempts (hot chocolate milk, various flavours of tea) I decided I should try coffee.

No hot drink can possibly taste good.

Woke up and was greeted by a nice big CHKDSK screen for my 2TB anime drive. I changed the SATA cable, but still HD Tune says it's fucked. A shame really, I only bought it in September. I spent the day making sure I had everything backed up correctly with valid CRCs to my two 1TB drives. Then I made a list of what drive each show is on. I'll need to find out how to get the 2TB replaced. Until then, I'll be nervous as shit with my whole anime collection sitting without a backup. I'm only going to plug them when I really need to, via a USB SATA dock, just to minimize any chance of them failing. If either of these drives fail, I don't know what i'll do.

Spent the rest of the day playing Left 4 Dead 2. I got an urge to play it for some reason. It's a decent way to burn a few hours. Now i'm going to catch up on a few eps of this seasons anime, then i'll be off to bed.

Of course, I should download something new...Thinking of picking up Bento, maybe. It seems very cute and weird. And Fate/Zero, because Type-Moon. And guns + magic, that idea always fascinated me.
I'd have to catch up like a motherfucker, though.

Currently debating hooking up my old, old PC, just for the hell of it. Plus, all my emulators/music/anime/writing is on there, and I can't do without my music...I dunno, though, lots of work for little reward. Have to clear a space for it and all...

Played Aion in between the times I had to go out to pick up my sisters from school/drop them off at class. I then spent an hour and a half navigating Maryland's traffic clogged highways during rush hour to go see a showing of a Miku concert in a theater in one of Baltimore's suburbs. The concert itself was glorious, the other people at the showing not so much, for obvious reasons.

I think I would've been better off watching a rip of it on my computer.

Today I was psuedo-productive. I was going to fix the good PC that broke 1/2 a year ago. First I needed a harddrive to install the OS on, so I began to delete stuff off of one on my own shitty PC to make room for the OS for the new PC, then I made a partition. The previous harddrive still has save-able data on it, which others in my family may want that would need to be dumped to large HDD which I don't have, so I can't use it. But the HDD I deleted stuff off of is IDE an the good PC only has SATA... my mission was aborted.

It seems like every endeaver I make is hampered by the fact that I have no money, and everything I can do to aquire money doesn't need to be done and counter-productive to a society worth being a part of. So be a slave(job), fix PC, be miserable and shamed or do the best I can with broken equipment, and continue to be miserable and frustrated.

A funny story to go with this: My sister is sick with strep throat (which happens every few months for some reason) and yet she still comes over every day. I told her I didn't want her to make me sick again, and she said it wouldn't even matter if she made me sick because I do nothing anyway.

Downloading episodes 5-10 of Kyoukai Senjou no Horizon. This series is so damn fun. It's a very in-depth show. It's as though it is it's own little world in itself. You can really get lost in it. I love that.

Other than that, nothing's gonna be going down today. Might try and read a bit of Hamlet. Been getting an itch to do that. Or maybe Cross Channel. Downloaded that days ago, and I told myself that I'd do it up this weekend, but do it up, I did not, as most of the weekend was spent asleep/watching Horizon. Hmm...

Today I woke up around 4:30 PM. I ate and have some talking with my family, after wich I went back to my room; I had plans about doing some stuff today (I should be doing some stuff), but all I did was just fap and lurk random stuff online in-between. Normally I wouldn't mind; but considering I've been awake for 7 hours, that I took around 2-5 min's to come and that I've faped at an average ratio of 40 minutes between each session...

It wasn't as difficult as you'd think. After around a little more than a month of casual practice I'm at 39 words per minute, though I still feel more comfortable looking down at the keyboard than I do at the screen; not to say I can't type that way. So long as you get a program to help you practice and avoid QWERTY like the plague, it'll be relatively easy. Though in the beginning you'll either have to use an onscreen keyboard to see where everything is or lift your hands up, and this will be a minor annoyance. Just keep in mind that the prize is worth it!

Here's the program I use: http://macinmind.com/?area=app&app=masterkey&pg=download. Despite the site name, there's a Windows download as well. It's very nice: shows you how to position your hands and reach the keys and has various exercises ranging from single letters to a computer generated story.

My "friend" has stolen my first song I was working on. I gave him a copy to work with and bring back to me. So he would have possession of the updated version, the version I would go over and use to move forward with him. I need him because I know what I want the song to not sound like, but I don't have the skill to make it happen That was a month ago; he agreed to have it back to me after a week. I have repeatedly told him to bring me the song and he refuses. I don't know anyone else that can play drums and bass. And I can't go on by myself because I don't know a single thing about music.

I don't even know why he would want to keep it for himself, let alone refuse to give me a copy. It wasn't that good. I wouldn't even care - I gave up on trying to get into music a while ago - if not for the fact that I promised my waifu I would make her a song and dammit that was my first step towards that goal.

Been there...

Maybe he simply hasn't worked (enough) on it, wich is why he's avoiding the subject (if I understood corretly). By all means: unless they are serious producers who dedicate themselves to do that, or some fellow men you're together within a project (like a band), I wouldn't entrust other people for completing a song that I expect to rest as the author of; not that much because they might steal it, but because most people just don't compromise enough when doing things as a favor... and I'm sure you have the greatest expectations for that particular song.

Having one of those things where I can't/won't sleep. Just been happening lately, and I have no clue why.

Just do it, it's really hard to knock anything around. If you knock a plug out, it's very easy to find where it goes again, anyway.

Also, as well as air dusting, make sure the fan areas on your PC are open to the entire room. I used to have mine almost against the wall, but once I sucked the dust out and rotated it like so I shaved off about 10 degrees from all temperatures, half that for the GPU. Using Dolphin still puts my cores above their max temperatures though, which is disappointing because there are quite a few Wii and Gamecube games I'd like to try.

I don't know, I just think it had something to do with that(notice that what I mean is that the computer itself was still plugged to the outlet, I had only turned off the PSU).
Maybe I discharged something into it, as I don't have those fancy wristbands and ended up touching the cooler's metallic heat sink, the motherboard itself and all that.

Yup. It's what I usually do, but as I said, I was particularly panicked and tired from unplugging the whole computer just to adjust the fan all the time and ended up doing everything wrong.

In hindsight, I admit to having committed some serious crimes on my hardware. In fact I do it all the time. It's true that it's harder than you'd think to mess shit up. I've done some crazy things that by logic should've been lethal, but none of my hardware failures have been related to my rough treatment of it - as far as I know.

Attented my grandmother's funeral yesterday, the coffin was quite heavy so my hands hurt from carrying it. I have been also working on finishing few assignments (around 6000 words) and finally submitted them today, no idea if they even qualify as passing. I barely slept during the week in order to finish them.

I planned to revard myself by watching some anime or playing some games or doing something I like. When I started to search for something to do, I realised there was nothing I'd like to read, watch or play even when my log is full of material I've planned to take a look at.

Went with my mom to get this older gentlemen's will officially signed over to us in the morning.
found out there, that they require the person to have at least two friends to act as witnesses, but who aren't in the will.
I found this rather offenice and asked them if that meant a person with no friends wouldn't be able to register an official will, she didn't say it but seems such people are shit out luck.
it also bothered me, becuase it means, if you only have two friends, and you want to put one in the will, not only would that second one not be enough people to act as a witness, but you have to leave that or any other friends completely out of your will in order for you to sign off on the other friend getting your stuff, nice huh?

latter I repaired a pair of broken headphones of mine, by cutting off the end and soldering on a new jack.
was kind of proud of myself for actually managing to pull it off.

I woke up today with a priapism. I sucked it up and waited a few hours to see if it would go away, but it didn't, it only started hurting more and more and more.

Let's fast forward to the hospital.

I finally caved in and went, hiding it under my XXL jacket as I did. Telling them was hard enough, but it seemed that the receptionist didn't even know what it was! So they send me back to a triage nurse and after talking with her about it, and getting things ready for a room in the back, she says "Hey, you don't need to be embarrassed, you aren't the first guy to come here with this problem." YOU AREN'T FUCKING HELPING!

Fast forward to my room.

The doctor comes in, talking about random shit that I don't remember. He then moves the blanket to see how its doing, then says some medical stuff to the nurse and walks off. The nurse puts in an IV and then also walks off.

About 20 minutes later he walks in and says "Hey, what we are going to do is stick a needle right in the middle of your penis and inject something that should help relieve it." On the way out "OH, and there are a few doctors around here that want to watch this get done. They've never seen it, and this is a rare chance for them. Ok, we'll be back in a minute." I could only laugh bitterly after he left and wait for the group to come back.

Well, come back they did. An Asian male, a short Asian female, a white female doctor, and a while male doctor, in addition to my doctor that's doing the procedure.

Well, things go fine. Painful(They had to stick three needles in three different times to get it), but fine. Afterwards, they give me a sedative(Adavan?), which barely touched me, so they gave me another one in pill form this time, which still barely touched me, but now I could walk out(Slowly) with my head held high and my other head dead in my pants.

In conclusion; FUCK TRAZADONE. And fuck the doctors that repeatedly prescribed it to me.

Well, shit happens.
>> No. 12677 [Edit]
>>12676
so was the trazodone at fault for your priapism?
>> No. 12678 [Edit]
>>12677
Yeah.

I overheard the doctors talking about how all the priapism cases lately have been trazadone based, which means there might be a recall if something serious happens and someone sues.

I'm done with it though. As soon as I got back, before taking anything off even, I grabbed the pill bottle, opened the window, and threw it as far as I could. We live on the 11th floor, I should add, and it's snowing out there. It's someone else's problem now.

Today I made a complete ass of myself.

Sometimes I get into this weird state where everything looks like something else. Like I'm interpreting my surroundings differently. Once, I woke up and looked at my desk and chair. Rather than a desk and chair, I saw some kind of abstract landscape.

Today, this happened as I was leaving an appointment. The building had glass walls next to the glass door exit. Then I entered that weird state again. I couldn't see the door at all, only a very small section of the entire glass area. I couldn't find the way out.

Eventually I snapped back and turned my head a little. I was able to see the door and left quickly while saying something like "the glass is too damn clean, I can't tell the difference!" in case somebody had seen me looking odd and confused.

I have no idea what causes this, but I sure hope it never kicks in while I'm out in public again. That was... really embarrassing.

I symphatize with that. I once actually walked into a glass door because, well, I didn't see the door. Too damn clean indeed.

Sadly, that happened before I got into anime so I couldn't have finished that with saying 'tehe~~' after hitting my head.

But I still think confusing salt and sugar is impossible outside of 2D realm.

Well this is interesting, last night when coming from college on the bus and i was up against some 3DPDs on the bus, as it was crowded. Apparently some people thought we were in a relationship. After the two 3DPDs got off, they started talking to me about how we're together and they're fuckable and whatnot.

The ethnic group I am a part of it is more social than average in the US and there is a stronger pressure to be in a relationship I would say, for both genders. They were going on about that I should've hit on the girls and done some questionable harassment shit like hitting their ass with the excuse of being on the bus and not noticing that/accidentally. They asked me why i didnt talk to them or hit on them, and I said something like "I didnt feel like it" and "I was listening to music (I was listening to Linkin Park).

Interesting how one of the guys on the bus was saying 'be smart and all, but put yourself out there. The worst that can happen was you get turned down' and he said some shit about 'our best men turning gay or nerds'. I facepalmed and he recognized that and explained something about one of his friends in HS who was a 'player' who 'turned gay and married a football player'

If I wasnt sleepy/distracted I could've just said in response to the 'they can only turn you down' statement, 'they can do worse than that' or something along that line.

Have you all had similar experiences with random people on buses and shit telling you to 'put yourself out there'? My ethnic group has that a lot and I remember some arab posters on here mentioning how their family does the same thing with trying to get them married and whatnot to the point of hooking them up with 3DPDs.

Today someone broke into my house.
He entered in the neighbour's, jumped the wall separating our properties and entered through a window with a broken lock on the second floor.
I was locked in the computer room playing loud music and didn't hear shit until he was messing around in the room next to this. As soon as I opened the door he ran and got away the same way he got inside.
Luckily he dropped what he was carrying while fleeing and then my wallet back on the neighbour's house. She returned my wallet and the whole sum of money I dumbly left inside it.

Now I'm fucking paranoid. Talking with the neighbours and the cops later I found out there's been a wave of robberies on the street last weeks, and now it seems they are aiming to the houses.

Picked up the last Viz print issue of Shonen Jump today.

They've abandoned printing in favour of online, paid subscription e-magazines.

...why would I pay for online manga when I can get it months ahead of their publication, and for free no less?

Bitches dun committed suicide.

PS: I like how so many manga publishers, about a year before they go out of business in North America, talk about a "really cool" transition over to "digital publication" like they're trailblazing by surfing the hip new wave of the future, just to cover for them laying off people and going overbudget, dropping titles and counting down to inevitable doom.

I give Shonen Jump Alpha eighteen months max, before Viz drops the monthly publication and most of the tankoubons, and maybe 36 months max before Viz has to sell out or drop everything like Tokyopop.

Rather than my points I see the pattern- All of the companies that have recently gone out of business start by touting a new electronic publication program, then they drop titles, then staff, and then announce they are going out of business in full, and a month or two after they announce it, they close all offices for good.

The main reason people still buy manga is because there isn't any satisfaction in an external hard drive filled with manga. A shelf full of it is different.

I can tell you that even as a fellow skinny dude (unless you actually are a kawaii girl) that it's not that bad. Even if you're really stick thin, you have some muscle that can be strengthened, if not increased in size. Also, sitting in front of a computer causes gut fat to accumulate. Doing walking or any kind of physical cardio is good for working down that gut fat. I found this out through experience, so it might be different for you.

Today, I started a project I have been planning for five years. Or seven. Lost count. It's more than five though.

Relatives moved so I got the materials at last. All I need to do now is make the arms, and cover the entire thing in a layer of cardboard-coloured packing paper, to make it smooth and free of markings.

Completely agree with this. The only people who prefer all their books to be in electronic format are minimalists and people with organisation OCD, and the iOS crowd. I have seen far more complaints from consumers about electronic publishing than people who were for it.

pfffffffff I love this filter.

It's because it's trendy. And advertised on all pixel space on the website.

Still, people can leap across platforms. I mean, depending on the book, I personally would find a $30 hardcover book versus a $15 (is that how they price it?) would be a no-brainer. The thing is, I like collecting some books, and I am certain that a vast many do share my sentiments. If it's some vampire hunger tribes book or some paperback smut novel old women on planes read, or the flavour-of-the-month political memoirs of Presidential candidate Benjamin McWillardshits. But when it comes to some things, like (a matter of opinion) Sherlock Holmes or Yotsuba, I think those things have staying power, and I'd rather keep a physical copy rather than have it in zeroes and ones.

Also, those things aren't indestructable. That's why I hated music players. Lose it, and you lose not only a $150 electronic, but however many books you bought for it. And if you read a lot, well, then, tough shit I guess.

Plus if I wanted to suggest a book to someone, or let them borrow it, I can't just snap off a piece of my kindle like a hershey's chocolate bar and let them borrow it for a couple weeks.

I like ereaders for things like textbooks or if you're one of those older people who have so many paperback novels they can make an addition on their house, and literally give them away like firewood.

Today I think I finally learned what it means to have a panic attack.

I was getting some dental work (I didn't ask for) done south of the (US) boarder, felt like a eternity with that drill in my tooth for about 45minutes, but wasn't nearly as bad as what came after.
My mother had decide to forgo driving across the border for walking across becuase she thought it would be faster, this meant having to wait in an enormous line with a smoker in front of us for two and a half+ hours, a line in size that would put any of disneyland's lines to shame.
The pics I took here barely even show 60% of the line.
There were people offering to drive people in taxis or something across the boarder, and I offered to pay, but my mom didn't want to because we'd lose our spot in line after waiting for 15 minutes.......
After about an hour, I was at my limit, breathing heavily, trembling, disoriented, the works.
That's around the point when my mom told me to hold a bag full of liquor bottles she just bought so she could go on ahead and sit down, I dropped it there and left, at that point I didn't care about the line place or getting stuck across the boarder or anything, I just had to get away from all the people!
FUCK! eveyone stands so close!
has no one ever head of personal space!!?!
Anyway, there was nowhere I could really go to get away from all the people, so I just stood in some plaza area staring at my cellphone trying to take my mind off what was around me.
after about 15-20 minutes she dragged me back into line , even though she didn't lose her spot, it was still another half hour from there or so.
She knows I have these problems, we fucking saw a doctor about it a week ago, I swear this bitch is just fucking with me and is loving this.
I spent most of the two hour drive back in the fetal position with earphones blasting and trying to forget what happened.
Shit like this really makes me hate all the people who claim there's nothing wrong with me, that I'm just faking it becuase I'm to lazy to work or some shit.
YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE!!
YOU CAN ALL SUCK MY MOTHER FUCKING DICK!!!

My dad used it as an opportunity to lecture me about not having a job, lost mine a month ago after missing too many days when I got sick. He told me that he would kick me out if I don't find a decent job within the next few months.

I assisted someone in finding a place where they were doing a job interview. It was closeby, and he was interested in going to it as well. It was the direct competitor with my old favourite store in the city, the one that went out of business.

This place had a really nice aesthetic.

I made a small shinto shrine on my property, but I'm not sure what it will house just yet.

The shrine is on a certain boulder that seems oddly placed. It's impossible for it to have been placed by a person, so its perfect placement seems like something to be celebrated. The torii is four feet tall, and I made a small structure with a roof behind the boulder.

I have about three small auxillary shrines around my property, one at the base of the tallest tree in the neighbourhood, another is on a natural rock formation I found near my driveway, and the third is on top of the highest hill on my block, where two cedar trees are growing. Cedar trees are really rare in my area.

The new one may end up tying all the functions of these smaller shrines together, and I think I'll make an offering box for this one.

All of this is shaman-style shinto, I don't have a priest to come and bless any items or anything. I'm sure I can address it to an appropriate kami, and have it enshrine a sacred object of some sort.

Unintentionally started a blowout internet argument with someone I was in contact with for a while. She is making a big deal over her new kpop obsession, and has posted a ton of kpop videos on her profiles all over, and is making a big deal about how she is now selling all of her anime and weeaboo stuff because "that phase is behind her".

I told her that she's just an insecure weeaboo hipster, which I find steps down from even narutards, and that she can have fun listening to Liancourt rocks arguments and singing along to music sounding like she has severe sinus congestion. Hit the nail on the head with that one.

>And are there really that many people that see Kpop as being cooler that anime, manga, and Jpop?

Yes and...

>I suppose I'm even more out of touch with the fandom than I'd previously thought.

... yes, apparently very much so. It's something that's been going on at least since 2008. Probably way, way longer. It's kinda interesing to see how it has grown from just a few people posting SNSD videos to the point where 4chan is probably in serious need of /co/ - corea (bye bye /co/).

Also K-dramas are becoming more and more popular despite being absolutely terrible. I've only seen a single ep of two but damn, they were arguably even worse than your average anime. And the acting, Jesus. It's funny because old Japanese housewives supposedly love this shit.



I think it's related more related to how certain people feel the need to 'move on' every once in a while. They abandon their old interests and take a 'this is so yesterday' attitude towards it.

As for why such need exists I can only guess. There are lots of possibilites - they want to feel they're moving forward in life, , everybody suffers from ADD (i.e. they et bored of the medium; it's actually a wee bit fair to say that about anime but still) or maybe even simple elitism. Who knows.

Kpop is gaining attention from kids in college a lot, and apparently SNSD made an appearance on Letterman or some shit, so now people are liking Korean things a lot and hating Japanese things because weeaboos like Japanese things.

I bet if we can get a million autists to talk about their love for kpop nonstop for hours we would find that the beikoku kanryu would die pretty quick. As for K-drama on, say, crunchyroll, it's proof that its the Pabst Blue Ribbon of asian entertainment.

As for "getting over that phase", I'm not sure what to think. I don't think liking anime is a phase, and I am willing to bet a million dollars that most of the "otaku" who go to k-pop are either the epitome of hipster or were bitched at by a Korean about comfort women or some shit.

The popularity of anime, like any other form of entertainment, has a very large effect on it.
although it certainly doesn't do much for what is already created, it can easily determine what gets made next.
If a certain type of anime gets more popular than the rest, like say, cyberpunk anime for example, in the coming seasons or even generation, you would see tons of cyberpunk anime, and what happens if cyberpunk loses it's popularity and suddenly ecchi harem anime becomes popular? of course you'd see a lot less cyberpunk and a lot more ecchi harem stuff get made, same for slice of life moe anime after that or grim dark shit after that.
what difference does it make though?
although no one genra is going to take over completly, and there's always going to be some variety there, you do have to ask yourself, what if something I would have really enjoyed got sidelined and replaced for something that would be more popular?
what if anime X that you'd have loved to death, was pushed aside for a mediocre flavor of the month?
That's something we will never know now will we?
but it's not imposable.


The popularity of anime in the west on the other hand results in more and more anime getting licensed and dubbed, which results in fansubbers dropping projects, and in many cases effects distribution of the licensed work in both subbed and raw form.
and this actually can effect already made anime, becuase of a little thing called localisation, which is not always limited to just audio and can indeed include editing of the video as well, as seen many times in anime aired on american tv.
In a way, funimasion and the like are doing to anime, what gorge Lucas is to doing star wars, releasing crappy edited versions of the original work while making the original harder to acquire, in a sense making the new version the standard.

Downloaded a couple of Kill Me Baby Episodes and japanese subtitles. The subs timing was all messed up and I had to resync it by hand. Not that bad, a few timing shifts and most of the lines were satisfactory. Only did episode one so far, though.
Now I only hope I'll be able to finish episode one before next week.

Also found jap subs for, at least for a couple of episodes, most of this(last?!) season's shows I plan to watch. Hopefully it won't be necessary to resync every single one of them.

I've decided to give up one of my few vices - Stimulant drugs. It sucks, but it's got to happen.

The crash is just too heavy for someone like me to deal with, and they're also really damn unnecessary for a NEET. If I was talking to people on a regular basis, then I might be able to find some precedent for their use. But I only end up rambling to strangers online whenever I use them, and that's not really fun in the long run, y'know? Oh, I also write random, nonsensical files full of unnecessary information - Sort of a minute-by-minute guide to my high. It's just getting really weird. There's also addiction to take into account - I don't want to end up addicted (if I'm not already).

You'd think you'd be able to watch anime, maybe complete a few series even, on the "focus pills" and such, but naw. Just rambling to yourself and blasting music you haven't listened to in years at 4 in the morning.

It was a fun time, though. I'll give it that.

Friday I went to WalMart with the renter to pick up groceries.

Walked up to the self-service checkout because we are terrible with cashiers (or anyone with a face really), and I looked down, and in the pocket you get your bills, someone left sixty dollars in twenties. So I nonchalantly snatched them up and put them in my pocket, and counted them when I got to the car alone.

The thrill was short lived, however, as we needed to fix the kitchen sink for six hours that night.

I just got back from going with my mother and her co-workers to a "haunted" house. It was just a trip to a deserted house that looked like some sort of mushroom house (If it was painted a littler different it would've looked like something from a Mario game) that looked pretty cool, if it wasn't spray painted straight to hell. The house was just a pathway for a couple of other houses which were the same, so it made for a bit of a walk. It would've been pitch dark if it weren't for the moon which made things a tiny bit luminated (just enough to see the shape of things, but not enough to see any detail on them). Anyway, nothing happened except for some bats that were hiding in a hole and a bunch of mosquitoes.

I only went just to make sure that nothing happened to my mother, so it was nothing more than a walk in the dark with some strangers for me.

Oh, and apparently some people were killed there or something. I didn't get the full details since I was watching out for any signs of wild animals.

There was also a shed, but it was in the middle of the woods and we weren't prepared to go through the woods since there was a ton of tall grass.

I took a train today. It was an Amtrak train. It ran on diesel. The locomotive in the front is actually where they pilot the train. The train is powered by two diesel locomotives in the back. The locomotive was a EMD F59PH. The locomotive powering the train was a GE Genesis P32AC-DM. The GE Genesis P32AC-DM was on the north side. I was going south. I enjoyed going on the train. The tickets were strange. I had to reserve them online. They printed in my printer using regular paper. You may find this post offensive. The conductor did not rip the ticket stub because it wasn't a proper ticket. The conductor did not yell "ALL ABOARD!" He was a bad conductor. Dad told me not to tell people how to do their jobs.

This same thing happened to me several times. A puff of air test says I need a better test in a few months, then the better test (where they poke your eye with some sort of contraption) says "oh it's fine". Eventually I stopped going because it's just a waste of time and it freaks me out

So today I was rummaging through some old videotapes, and saw this movie that really stood out to me, I guess possibly becuase it had a very short and cryptic description to it. I had never even heard of it before. when I tried watching it, it was so... strange, so bizarre... and not just becuase most of it was static, it really felt like it was talking directly to me, not even braking the forth wall, just ignoring it, and giving my life at that moment directions, it was down right scary, but I couldn't stop watching, in fact, I was memorized, I watched the video several times in trying to understand it's hidden message, but I guess it was really just too DEEP for me to understand....
I think it was called 'RCA VCR head cleaner tape' or something around those lines, a strange name for a strange movie if I do say so myself, and definitely a instant favorite of mine.

I'll try. I was derping pretty hard, so this is going to be a derpy post.

I went to a store attached to a range in the outskirts of the city. I was afraid of going to an urban one for obvious reasons. I actually went to a different one two days before, but I told them it was my first time buying a gun and they asked if I wanted to do a safety class and I thought it would be suspicious if I refused. Then I left, defeated. The store employees were nice enough though.

They didn't interrogate me about why I was buying a gun. I don't think the second place even asked. The first place did because I said I had never bought a gun, but they didn't ask anything further after my response of "defense."


I pointed to the cheapest revolver I saw and said I was thinking about getting that one. And they took it out and two other similar ones and talked about the differences in weight and trigger pressure and stuff and then asked me to dry-fire them to find which one I wanted. Took me a while to figure out how to open the cylinder or whatever, because you know, you're always supposed to make sure a gun is unloaded for yourself. (For revolvers, you have to push the lever forward. Also, after you close it, rotate the cylinder to have a chamber line up with the barrel.) I pointed it at the floor when dry firing. Probably anywhere but at somebody is fine, the clerk aimed at a wall when he was.

He noticed that I was unfamiliar with handguns, and recommended that I do a familiarization class thing. I was like oh fuck not again, I'm fucking getting a gun this time. I said I'd take the flyer with me, but I would like to buy the gun now. He asked ask if I wanted to rent it first. I'm guessing that's a range-only thing. I declined.

I live in Georgia, so he just had to enter my driver's license and I had to fill out some papers and then he did a background check. Then he asked if I wanted ammo, and I said yeah. He said they had three types, and I don't remember what he said the difference was, maybe "stoutness" or something? Anyway, he recommended the middle one, so that's what I took (+P ammunition). Then there was like 6 brands to choose from. I chose the cheapest box.

Well, I mean, on gun safety rule lists, it always says you're always supposed to check for yourself to make sure a gun is unloaded.

After getting the message and finally checking I asked if it was working and he told me it was, so I go to unplug the router and he tells me to wait because he didn't know if it was working or not yet.

One painful part of the performances was a white ass blonde girl in a kimono, with her friend on a harp, and she was reciting a terrible version of a "Japanese folk tale" with horrible, dramatic tonation. "IN THE ANCIENT JAPANESE SHINTO RELIGION OF JAPAN, THE KAMI OF THE SAKURA CHERRY TREE SHEEN-BOHKEW, IS A KAMI THAT IS DELICATE..." It was certainly cringe-worthy for me. Also the inaccuracy of basically every noise that came out of this girl's mouth was awful. She also had that stereotypical weeaboo girl groany, butchy voice, which made it almost comical if it weren't so tragic.

I like my happi though.

EDIT: there were some booths that were giving away free Japanese books, including Genki. I didn't get the Genki textbooks, but I got a TouDai textbook on Japanese history. Will be an interesting read once I can read it.

Today I found out I have to get a job. Or what? I don't know, but I don't really want to deal with all of the arguing anymore.
It's so weird. I feel this mixture of emotions. On one hand, it could be nice - Having money for more games, and, in 5 months (probably much earlier, though - I have no willpower), Unlimited Stimulant Works. On the other, I feel more scared than I've ever been in my life. Like, terrified. Worse than "first day at school" terrified. It's very, very strange to see that this life can't continue forever.
Although I welcome the feeling of satisfaction that will come from the fact that even applications for the most meager, lowly jobs will be rejected because I'm not affable, not really a people person, have no education, and no "special skills".

I'm thinking about trying to get a job at a convenience store, preferably late shift. That's always been a weird fantasy of mine. There are like, 4 gas stations in a row down the street.

From what I understand convenience store jobs (or most jobs) could have you work different shifts if nobody else is available. getting stuck on a morning shift with tons of people would be awful

I woke up to find my grandma strangely not awake. She was lying on the sofa, her hands andlegs ice cold and blue, and she couldn't talk. The paramedics said she suffered a stroke and her whole left brain is damaged.

Finished a portfolio today. Edited 5 long-ass papers and a letter, up to like 5am, slept, did a runover/edits and printed them at my college literally 5 minutes before they were due at the college, stapled all the shit together, submitted. I fucking hope I do not fail this class, as I am on the fucking borderline. That is basically my final. There is a short paper like 500 words which is my technical final but all my shit reservea around that. I hope I don't fuck up that.

Tomorrow my remaining math work is due, i did that over the weekend. But now there's again a damn final. I am not happy, but in a way I am happy.

Went to my dad's place, whom I had not seen in like a year, for a belated birthday dinner.
Played horseshoes and darts in his backyard with him and his brother. I failed miserably.
was able to help them out with their pc problems easy enough though.

My uncle made me a large candle himself for my birthday, seems more charming to me when a gift is made rather than bought.
Dad got me this portable dvd player thing, I don't use dvds much, but might be able to use the avi connectors for playing ps2 games on the go or something.

also, my pc crapped out on me.

I went to the hospital today and learned the importance of regular food and fluid consumption. They wanted me to stay overnight, but I had to write someone and go to class so I refused. My doctor said that health was more important than education; my father, a teacher, disagreed. I've drank several tubs of Pedialyte now and my body is feeling much better than it has been, so I'm not worried about that any more (though I was never worried in the first place). Please remember to eat and drink regularly NEETs.

My copy of Voltaire's Bastards arrived today and I have been reading that. The writing style is pleasant and the content is interesting. It's a rather lengthy book, so it should entertain me for a while. Or is distract the better term? All entertainment is a form of distraction, I suppose.

Mail my the diploma and end it all fucking ready. My phone is shit so im not uploading anything now at least.

I really want to stab some bitch ass niggaz today.

Oh, and I wont get to eat out for my fuck graduation probably or even go to an arcade. How niiiiice. I feel like killing people right now.

Today I practiced some ASL and finally made it to a class I've missed for two weeks. Turned out the absences didn't matter; I haven't missed any assignments or anything "important" and actually got an A- on the midterm that I thought I'd failed.

I've been worrying about a very close friend of mine who has been suffering a lot lately. I wish that there were some way I could show them how beautiful this world and other people are, and how wonderful the future will be, for better or worse. Even if there's awful things in this world, as long as you can find love for something, anything, every day will just be a little nicer...

My mental condition has been degrading, unrelated to that. I've been spacing out for longer periods of time, feeling more strange connections between things, and having more strange daydreams. In them, I feel like I'm watching an alien planet, and false memories bring me strong feelings. It feels like everything inside me's mixing me together. I keep thinking nonsense and it brings confliction more than anything. I can't remember what happened 5 minutes ago or what I plan to do, but at the same time I can remember everything I've said, read, and done today with perfect clarity. I just wish there were some convenient way to clear my mind... anime and alcohol and all that can distract me from myself, but that's not what I want. It's not bad, but it's weird. I'm just slightly worried that I might lose my grasp on reality completely someday...

Edit: Oh, and there have started to be things which I remember doing but didn't, if that makes any sense. I think that daydream really is the right word, because it feels like I'm dreaming at times!

My dad's trying to sell my house, which involves a lot of strangers coming in and looking in my room, among other things... that's stressful just in itself. After I finally cleaned up all my dog's messes, the people came in and tried to talk with me, standing in my doorway and looking at my anime posters on my wall with a judgmental eye. I let my dog in a few hours after they left and she did it again. Just remembering it makes me feel like I'm going to barf again. Hopefully my doggy hell ends today.

Today I got a bunch of flower seeds from someone on the street who was handing little packets of it out. It was weird at first until I realized it was some promotional item, so I accepted them. There are about 8 types, 2 of them blends of random seeds.

I have nowhere to grow them due to where I live, so I stopped on the way home and bought some foam cups and a little bit of soil (what a heavy thing to haul around). I labelled the cups, put drainage holes, and planted the seeds. If they manage to sprout I have no idea what I'll do with them. Maybe I can get some kind of window cell garden thing so I can see them without having to go out.

Flowers are really nice. I'd love to have a huge pile of land to grow them (and vegetables). But then I worry about bees.

It felt like I was seeing reality through someone else's eyes and I watched as my body did things, and with another part of my mind (the part that daydreams?) I saw all kinds of strange things. Colorful little squiggles and static. It felt like my surroundings were moving, beating with their own pulses and warping in strange ways. When I'd try to sleep it off, I'd hear very loud pops that were really scary. My heart felt like it was beating very slowly and my brain felt like it was getting zapped by electricity. I was shaking very very dizzy. My dad asked me why I was in bed all day and I told him that I had a bad headache and left it at that. He told me that I was a fucking liar. I've had some experiences kind of like this before, but never with the loud cracks and pops or the zaps, or this bad. I'm afraid to talk about this with anyone in real life, but it's kind of scary. Even if I know they're not real, the delusions I have still bring awful feelings--mostly shame, guilt, fear, and sadness. It's all away for now, though...

Does anyone know what this kind of condition is called? How do you deal with it? I've been stressed out lately, worrying because I'm an anxious person, and I think it's related to that. I don't think it's schizophrenia because I haven't been hearing voices, but I don't really know much about psychology. I'm not going to kill myself or anything, but I wish I had something like drugs to distract myself from it. I described this to someone else who said that they would cut themselves when it happened but I feel sick when I see my blood.

Perhaps it is some form of psychosis? I know when people are really depressed or anxious, psychotic symptoms can begin to manifest themselves. Delusions, strange hallucinations and so on. It's hard to say. They call it psychotic depression (go figure), so maybe check that out.


Today I have not done any activities. Tried to read, but I'm too distracted. Maybe I'll go pick some flowers and brighten up my desk.

Today I took care of some things.

Some books came in the post today, which was nice. I've been reading a few of them but I haven't decided which one to start with and give a proper reading. Maybe I'll flip a coin.

I also finally did some laundry today. I hope it doesn't rain out, since I hung them outside. I bleached a bunch of dresses by accident too, which sucked.

Although mine have never been as bad as what you're describing, I have experienced mild visual and auditory hallucinations accompanying particularly bad bouts of depression. I have also experienced the "colorful squiggles and static" that you described, and have seen insects such as wasps and flies that turn out to not be real. Aural ones that I experienced were mainly voices, but could be random noises as well. My parents made me see a psychiatrist when I was younger, and I was diagnosed with "major depression with psychotic features". Apparently, the hallucinations are a response to the severe depression. I was prescribed Zoloft and Zyprexa (an antipsychotic), both of which I took for maybe two months before I decided that the cure in this case was worse than the disease. But while I hated them, if you can see a psychiatrist and get a script it's worth a try at least.
I regret to say that I've little practical advice to give you regarding how I deal with it, as I'm not really sure myself.

Today I thought about things and walked around outside. No hallucinations, mostly clear thought. I saw a boy at my college playing Touhou on his computer. It's nice to know that there's at least one other otaku in my area. We talked for a little while, which was nice. I was tempted to ask if he went to any imageboards, but settled on not saying anything. My father also took me out and bought me some pop. He's going out of town for five days and told me he'd buy whatever food I wanted but we already have food... he's worried that I'll be lonely, but I'm secretly relieved.

Depression? Maybe... I took Zoloft a while back and hated it, though. It made me feel like complete shit.

I am very jealous of those books, bro. I wanted to read The Age of Reason ever since this girl mentioned it to me Freshman year. And Camus is one of my favorite authors. I only own two books by him, though - The Myth of Sisyphus (a collection of essays and letters that I love) and The Plague (but that's in there). I wanted to read The Fall since forever ago.

I'm genuinely worried about my ceiling fan. I need it to be at the highest setting for it to be comfortable in my room, but it shakes and wobbles somethin' fierce each time I put it on that setting. It makes me scared that it's going to pitch off and fly at me while I'm at the computer.

Fuck summer, man! It just crept up on me this year, and before I knew it, it was time for the heat to come in and suffocate me. Such a pain in the ass. I want an air conditioner...

Gosh, almost 700 posts soon. Perhaps we should split the thread, though it's not image heavy and doesn't take too long to load.

Today I went to meet some deaf people that my physicians wanted me to meet. I was scared of them and being outside and eventually got bored, so I took my leave and went to read one of the books I got in >>14930 (I settled on The Age of Reason since it's one of the last from Sartre I have to read).

Now I am ironing clothes and drinking vodka.

This morning, there was a spider running around the outside of my window at quite a speed. I'd say it was around 4-5cm, so pretty big by UK standards. I paid no attention to it, because it was outside. Whilst searching for something in my room, I've just discovered it sitting in a mould covered corner. I don't know what to do. I'm too scared to go to bed knowing that such a big and fast spider is about two metres away. I also don't want to sacrifice a shoe, as disturbing that mould would probably make this room uninhabitable. I don't want to inform a braver family member (my mum), because then she'd discover the terrible state of my mouldy room, and probably complain about me sleeping through yet another jobless month.

I'm genuinely considering jumping ship into my sister's old room. Because of a spider.

Update: I took my eyes off it for an hour and it's fucking gone. Now I really don't know what to do.

I was very frustrated today (I very rarely am) so I went for a run, thinking it'd get my mind away from those feelings. After about 10 miles my feet started bleeding and most of the cuts on my legs had opened up. I was feeling very dizzy so I came home to disinfect and bandage my feet. Now I'm feeling worse and barfing. I'm a failure.

Some calluses on my feet opened up, so I'm guessing it was more overdoing it than poor form. When I was younger, I used to run as a team sport and I did pretty decently with it. My medical condition factors into it; in addition to problems with my feet, I need to bring snacks when I go out so that there's no chance I pass out and fall into a coma from just using my body. It'd be awful for some person to come across my body and bring it in to the hospital.

Ah...well anyways today I got stitches in my arm. I think the doctor was prejudice toward those who self harm, because it seemed like he was hurting me. I've experienced that before, so it could be the case.

Today I dressed up nicely and went to church because I thought it'd be interesting to watch, having not grown up in a religious home. Even though I am not religious, I sometimes enjoy reading about religious philosophy, and I've also been feeling very lonely. "Maybe I'll feel better if I'm around people who are happy, maybe they'll talk about interesting things," I thought. So I called my grandmother and she picked me up on her way.

There were a lot of friendly and kind people there, which made me happy. It also felt good to dress up nicely and a lot of people who were friends with my grandmother said many nice things to me. But I did not like the singing (it made me very, very uncomfortable), and even more of an issue to me, the pastor was teaching things that weren't part of the Bible and using rhetoric in the place of logic. But everyone there was very happy and they were donating money to charity, so I guess the ends justify the means. After the service, my grandmother introduced me to to the man in charge of things and he asked me if I had any questions about their kind of Christianity. I only asked, "if Christianity is supposed to be the answer to all of our problems in life, why does it still have so many questions and uncertainties 2000 years later?" The man just looked at me very, very carefully and we were quiet for a while. Then he kind of steered away from answering. It was an interesting experience, all in all, and it made me feel a bit happy, but it just wasn't for me. It didn't satisfy me on a deeper level. At least it made my grandmother happy that I went. I'm glad to be home because it was very tiring. My anxiety was starting to get to me and my feet were a little sore.

Oh I thought I was the only person who doesn't like to eat around others or hate it when other people watch me in the same room I'm in. I just want to eat in peace without people watching me or making noise when I'm eating. Even worse is when people speak to me when I'm eating or I actually have to eat with someone else in the house at the same table. Another annoying thing people in my house do in the kitchen is even if it is still light outside they feel the need to turn all the lights on in the kitchen making the lighting yellow, ugly, and unnatural which ruins my meal. Other times people bother me is when I'm in my room and they just come in and sit on bed watching me. When they do that I don't do anything on my pc because no matter what it is they'll have a stupid reaction to it like they do to everything I do. I don't know why anything I do even surprises them anymore.

Two nights ago, I took 888mg of DXM Polistirex (5oz of Delsym). I just felt slightly tired at first, but after about 1 hour and 20 minutes I started to feel sick, and then started tripping. I'll do my best to describe it, but it's hard to accurately remember what I saw, so it will mostly be just about the experience in general. Sorry if this is too bloggy.

For me, the experience could best be described as dream-like. I sort of related it to the times right after waking up when you're still sort of dreaming, but much more so. When I was lucid enough to try to do something, i could shape objects and stuff, or say "I want to fantasize about X." And it would happen. Usually, the interface to these fantasies was these 4 book icons in the lower right of my vision, and I would choose the fourth one, which was the book unlocked by the DXM, to tell me a story.

Also, when I was lucid enough to test stuff, I would try to open my eyes to see if I would have open eye hallucinations, but I don't recall ever having any. I would hallucinate generic room stuff when my eyes were closed, so I couldn't even tell if my eyes were closed until I tried opening them and then the room became much brighter (by this time the sun was starting to come up, or maybe it was just ambient light from the street) and I recognized it as the room I was actually in.

The rest of the time was pretty much just a bunch of dreams, and almost as hard to remember. It didn't seem like an alcohol blackout, where you just time skip, it was more that it was too disorienting and events too unrelated to form coherent memories. I remember thinking at one point that there's no way I'm gonna remember all this stuff. For some reason, I felt I could only have 4 discrete "tasks" active at a time and visualized slots for the tasks in the middle of my vision. I'm not really sure what a "task" was. I think a memory or thought would be one. And maybe moving a limb would be another. Very simple things.

The only sequences I have a decent memory of were one where I asked Lain for salvation (I don't think I used that specific word though, I think it was more asking if I could stay with her), and she said no. I said "that's what I thought." And then I was in a future orb thing going down a tunnel. And at the bottom, it was an infinite expanse of blackness with red lights floating in the distance, presumably the eyes of giant robots. The other sequence I sort of remember was one where I was like "I could make a game out of this stuff!" and then I was playing a Yume Nikki style game, and I was like, damn, this is just a ripoff of Yume Nikki.

After 4 hours, I realized that yes, my computer is a thing, and is usable. And so I crawled over there and turned it on and got on IRC. I had double vision like a motherfucker, so I had to use a hand to cover up an eye. Then I got nauseous from the movement and the light and crawled to the bathroom to throw up, and sat there for about 10 minutes. And stopped halfway back and cold-sweated from the nausea. Shortly afterwards, I turned my computer off and went to sleep.

Woke up the next afternoon, still under the effects a little. I still had a lot of trouble with coordination and balance and speech. Everything felt too compartmentalized still to do any of those things effectively. I was worried until I looked in a mirror and noticed my eyes were still dilated. I slept for most of the day, and by the end had mostly recovered except for a minor headache. And then I had a minor headache all yesterday and my jaw and neck were a little sore from being tense often. And today I'm fine!

That sounds like quite the experience. I hope you enjoyed or at least benefited in a way from it, despite being sick. That part sure sucks.


Today I had a horrible hangover, and slept/sat around until at least 1PM. I was so hot and my head hurt, so falling or staying asleep was impossible. I stared at the roof for the most part while occasionally falling asleep. I've been drained of energy all day and can't be bothered to do anything. Even typing is more effort than I want to do, so I've been watching Strawberry Panic and bad 80s sci-fi OVAs all afternoon.

I think it's really great that you tried it, even if it wasn't the BEST experience it could have been. Drugs change the way you understand reality to be, and I think that's good... mixing things up a little bit from time to time doesn't hurt, and it might even make us better. Just please please don't become an addict! DXM is very easy to get addicted to. I recommend doing a bit more research on it if you plan on taking it again sometime. At lower dosages where the trip isn't as extreme, it can be a fun way to relax... just as long as you don't grow hooked on it.

I've always wanted to give DXM a try along with DPH but I live with other people here and shit might happen. I also find it odd how that person had such a good experience, usually deliriant trips are filled with bugs and many other nightmarish things from the trip reports I read lately.

Anyways today was an average fat ass Friday, woke up made a pot of coffee, drank it all. And then just played games and surfed the internet the rest of the day as I felt strangely depressed because I was just too focused on my fantasies I will never feel. Later I'm tagging along with someone else in the house to get some pizza, makes me feel like more of a fat ass than usual on Friday but don't have a choice. I got kicked in the balls by my own mind again for thinking too much and it ruined my day.

That's because normals want you to suffer just like they do.

The good thing about this is that you don't have to suffer. Just do what you want and pay them no attention since you know what is best for you.

My neighbor was talking to my dad and said that a few nights ago another neighbor almost had his door kicked in in the middle of the night, and the cops told him that he should just shoot the guy through the door and drag the body inside. What the fuck happened to this place. Actually that's a silly question because I know: the cops said the number of burglaries in this neighborhood has gone up significantly since our neighbors started renting the house next door. Hopefully the won't be dumb enough to try to rob the house right next to them, or if they do then they don't take my computer

I'm sure that the only reason the cops said that was because they really don't want anything bad to happen to the honest people that live in that neighborhood. At this point I'm sure that they're tired of letting criminals go and watching them get away with even more crimes when them being dead could give everybody the peace that they want.

It's cruel, but it's likely that it's true.

Today I talked with some people online. Went for a nice walk, too. Cleaned my room and just broke out some vodka. It was a fairly good day, but it ended in kind of a confusing way. I have a hard time understanding people, but I wish I could make everyone happy. I guess I can only try my best.

Today so far has been an average Sunday. Woke up, made a loaf of beer bread and ate a bunch of it. Then I was back into my room all day on the internet with average Sunday soul crushing depression as my mother pestered me to apply for jobs I'll never be able to get but will apply for anyways just to shut her up.

My mom decided that today was fine to throw a party for my birthday from a couple of days ago or whenever it was.

I hope that I can get through this day with the most minimal of contact. She also took main fan that kept my room cool and have to use the tiny back up to keep my room from becoming a sauna.

DPH is just a kind of...bad drug that people shouldn't do. Like, ever.
I can not recommend it with a clean conscience - If you want to do it, you're in for a hellish time. Honestly, the best way to sum it up is "Silent Hill". You're scared, you don't know what's going on, all of the hallucinations are manifestations of your inner demons, and you have no clue what is real or if you're crazy or what.
DXM is a good kind of drug that people should do as often as possible, without getting too addicted, anyway, haha. It's when you start binging on it that you have to worry; Nobody likes DXM enough to binge on it, and so if that's happening, you have a problem, and should get away from the stuff for a while. Anyway, I'd recommend both, together; Namely because of what DPH does to DXM (it potentates it like a motherfucker - turns even the lowest of the low doses into something worthwhile; 300mg DPH + 300mg DXM is usually a fun time for me, but I've grown to hate DPH enough to completely cut it out of the equation - last time I did it, I think it was April...10th? I don't know, haha...anyway, it sucks, don't do DPH, even with DXM). It's just not worth it, what you get for your money, y'know? You're way better off buying some DXM and apple juice with your money - DXM is much more fun on it's own, I'd say. In my personal experience, I have had much more better results just forcing the syrup down my throat, and being sick a little later, than just doing the DPH/DXM combo. Shit is not fun. Apple juice is just generally good, and good for you, too~!

Anyway, today was fun. I dosed the rest of my Concerta, and spent the rest of the night writing about my dreams, and this one day at the beach with these people I barely knew came to mind, so I started writing about that. I feel like I've gotten something tangible there, but that was probably just the Concerta, haha. Oh, well...I'm all out, now. The dream is dead. It's not even like I loved it to begin with, but I couldn't help but feel a certain wistfulness as I dosed that one last dose, y'know? It was certainly a fun time, that's for sure. Now, my neck hurts, and I'm so spun I can't think straight. My eyes also hurt from staring at a screen all day, but I'm not going to stop. Why would I stop? I've got the crash coming soon, man, if it's not already here (which it definitely is), and I need to stay up for that, at least.

I was writing this since 8, haha~ Haha, oh, man, that's so strange, y'know? I was writing this since at least 8 AM (it's 12:40PM now). Haruhi damn, that's strange...

I keep having awful thoughts, awful hallucinations. My room feels like it's closing in on me, it feels like things are alive and they hate me. I'm convinced that they're out doing it again, I keep seeing all kinds of awful sceneries in my mind. I'm having intense daydreams that are more like nightmares, memories of things which haven't happened that are strongly felt enough to overwhelm my senses... it'll all end soon enough, I know, but it's awful. I keep barfing and shaking and crying and all kinds of unpleasant thoughts keep coming into my mind, and I can't keep them out. They're so terrible that I can't sleep, I can't concentrate. I just want it to all go away. This is anxiety like I've never felt it before. I just wish that everyone that's close to me would leave me and run away. We're all slime but I'm slime without a cast.

Today I woke up in a pool of dry blood without remembering how or why. Apparently you can cut yourself so bad you pass out from blood loss for a day. As a result, I went to the hospital to get stitched up. They tried to get me to stay in the psychiatric ward, but I hate it there and refused.

Instead I met a doctor who, from my countenance alone, seemed to notice how low I've sunk. I mentioned how desperate I am for help but lack the means or will to attain it, and he got me back on some anti-psychotics and anti-depressants for free (they became too much money) as well as an appointment with a doctor who treats the mental illness I have. I've been off my medicine and such for years and have become a pathetic, awful, terrible excuse for a person as a result. Well, let's hope that can change.

I've had a mostly wonderful day so far. I woke up this morning, full of energy and nothing to do, so I walked down to the local swimming pool and did some laps. Relaxed a bit in the hot tub and then went to the weight room (which, thankfully, was empty). It felt nice to use my body. After that, I took a bus to the store and bought a cheap new cell phone as well as some clothing. I walked around downtown for a few hours and enjoyed the nice weather and talked to some strangers to try to get past my anxiety.

My sister had a graduation party today and she rented out a room downtown. About sixty people or so came, mostly her friends and their families. Some of my family came as well and I was required to attend with them. My grandfather surprised me with a very healthy collection of very old Wittgenstein books, mostly books written by him but also some written about him. My family surprised me with about $600 of money. Like myself, my grandfather is very passionate about philosophy and religion and literature and all of those sorts of fields of interest, so we just sat in the corner and talked about our passions while ignoring everyone else. We talked about happiness and stress and anxiety some (he spent several years in in the field of psychotherapy) as well as the topic of worth. More than anything else, my grandfather is a con artist in my eyes. He seems to only care about himself and his own possessions, but he's very happy in the way he lives, which I find interesting. He gave me a lot of advice for finding jobs. "Haruhi helps he who helps himself," he tells me, himself being a devout atheist. "Other people don't matter. They have their problems, we have ours. Stress is purely internal, and things will only bother you if you let them." As someone who grew up as a beatnik, I think that he would understand and agree with the term Ford Driver if he heard it.

But my day was fairly good. I had a lot of good discussion and got a lot of money and good books. I tried looking for jobs but most of the businesses were closed today, so I'll try tomorrow. I really think that once you can be comfortable with who you are and once you can determine what it is you want in life, your life will get better. No one will ever love me, no one can ever love me, but maybe I can. I'm filled with a burning passion to improve my life. I can do it! Maybe that will get my mind away from that two month old distraction... all kinds of awful feelings like love and disgust and fear and regret and hope have been destroying my mind, I wish I could just shut off my irrational longings for other humans! It's awful! As much as I hate having to deal with other people and doing actual work, I really think a job would be a good way to stabilize myself and my future. Ah... I'm sorry for making such long and boring posts, it's just that my mind is full of many powerful thoughts and they're all running around and making me excited. I'm going to finish off my day by watching "Mysterious 3DPD X" and catching up on Fate/Zero, Korean Desk Car Zombie, Nyaruko, and Upotte! If you haven't seen Mysterious 3DPD X, you should check it out. There's a terribly cute girl in it...

If you can cut yourself so damn badly that you wake up in pools of blood and forget how it happened, maybe you should go to the psych ward for a while! What if you do it again, what if you do it worse? Your life can never reach a point so low that you can never recover. I've self-harmed myself before too, it's awful, you can't honestly say that you enjoy that kind of thing, can you? What are you trying to escape from in your life? Even if you feel that you're a disgusting waste of a human being, you have to convince yourself that there are worse people out there! If you're a hikikomori, it's virtually impossible to be a bad person! Compared to the drug dealers and soldiers and politicians and bankers and everyone else in our world whose greed seriously makes others suffer on needlessly, the most your actions can hurt are yourself. People can do disgusting things, but as long as you can leave the past in the past, you can become better! We all have our differences in how we live and how we came to be who we are, and that's what makes we humans so beautiful, who we are in our ideal states and how we change. What's been bothering you in life, Anonymous? It sounds like you're in a very bad position at the present, I'm sure there's an interesting story of how that came to be.

True, they usually do. I wonder why that is. I suppose I was quite lucky with that. I haven't slept or ate much in weeks, so I probably looked terribly pitiful in any case.

I spent much of the remainder of this day outside in some green space, thinking and writing of my existence. I've been piecing together why I believe I'm so unhappy and why it leads to so much self destruction, ambiguity and lying. I can thus far attribute it to one thing: varying degrees of brutality during my child hood, of which have left a cicatrice. Withdrawal, dishonesty and submissiveness became my only known tools of survival during these times and so I carried these concepts along with me to the present, never exonerating them nor ever taking a moment to think whether they were valid methods of dealing with things. Consequently this desire to isolate and obliterate all feelings progresses into more harmful acts, such as self-harm or drug use none of which is at all beneficial. Suffering becomes a tolerable and pleasurable experience when it has so much familiarity. It's flawless escapism.

Arriving at this minor understanding, I've become beset with a feeling of contentment. I still despise life and people and much of it I will never understand, but suddenly things don't seem so hopeless. Though unrealistic, there is a seething desire to rectify everything negative I've ever done or to anyone I've ever wronged. The best I can do is accept and learn from what I've done and hope I don't repeat the mistakes I've committed.

Alas, I don't know where to go from here but fueled with such positivism I feel a sliver of ambition growing inside me. I haven't felt like this in a long long time, it's actually damn scary. Ah, well, tomorrow is another day for more thought and experience, let's hope they're positive for each one of us out there.

Just came back from a job interview. A store. 

Walk into the room after a long time of waiting for the customer service person to figure out how to contact his boss that I was there. He confides that I was the only person to apply for the position in a month. I finally am directed to a storage room. Guy walks in with a woman. They ask me questions. Then they ask me if I can work nights and weekends. 

I say I am uncomfortable with it because their nights and weekends are 11 PM to 4 AM. They both chuckle and say "well, it's not about your comfort." I say I was mislead by the sign and noted it was the only position posted that didn't ask for nights and weekends. He said it didn't matter. 

I stood up and said "if neither of us want to maintain a level of professional conduct from the beginning of our discourse I feel this position is not within either of our interests for me to fill. If you will excuse me it will appear my interests in employment here have changed." I left. 

Seriously, fuck them. This is why I can't stand normals. They act so superior while letting people shit on them. Nobody respects anybody. I ask for a job fixing problems in a building (something I have the qualifications to do) and get offered shitty customer service retail hours. And? I am interviewed by an assistant manager in the department I am not applying for, not the manager or the assistant manager of the maintenance department. 

Why does every prospective job I look for have the stupidest management? This is almost as bad as being under a pregnant latina cunt and the registered sex offender flip that knocked her up in the break room, being told to work on days I have said time and time again that I cannot work because I have had plans on that day for a year and a half.

It doesn't matter what you put on your application they're going to make you work when they want you to. This is why I can never get even the lowest job since I'll never be able to drive myself or live alone because I'm too stupid to do any of that. On top of that the one time I was able to get an interview I had nothing else to discuss other than when I would come in to work and what I needed. So either way, a job just isn't for me. I just fill out applications and call places often to shut my parents up.

I was in the supermarket looking for ingredients for something I was going to make for myself since my parents were going out and I would be home alone. I figured I would make authentic ramen. 

So I looked at the ethnic food aisle. The Asia section of the shelf is blocked off by a stocking cart because nobody in my town wants to buy Asian food ingredients. They don't have dashi, but I have some at home. I see the miso I want but the cart is blocking it.  

I looked around. Nobody was in the aisle so I decided to move the cart. It was heavy and I had a lot of trouble moving it. 

A girl in the employee uniform rounds the corner and yells "WHAT ARE YOU DOING?!" I am shocked and accidentally tip the cart over. Import wine and caviar smash open and cover the floor. My hat falls off and a Japanese flag pin and a Haruhi pin fall off of it. I was wearing a hachimaki too. I scramble to grab the pins and she looks at the pins, me, and the miso on the shelf and yells "OH MY Haruhi, YOU'RE A WEEABOO!!!" and points a me. I yell "NO I'M NOT!" and my iPod falls out of my pocket and starts playing the Strike Witches OP on full volume. She screams and points. "WEEABOO WEEABOO WEEABOO!" 

Soon a bunch of blue collar workers run into the aisle and start throwing bud light cans at me and yelling that I was a Jap lover and a chinky chingchong and ask me why I hate America so much. A war vet runs and tackles me to the ground and punches my stomach. I struggle out of his grasp. I start running out of the store but soba noodles fall out of my pockets all over the floor, and I slip and fall in a pile of moist soba and my own tears and blood. The pain in my stomach has me convulsing and I struggle to get up but slip again and vomit on a small dog a woman brought into the store. Obata-sensei, the owner of the local karate dojo that I went to when I was nine, walks in, looks at me, and shakes his head in pure disappointment. Everyone is pointing at me and yelling "slant go home! Go back to Hong Kong!"

but really, whenever I go to the super market and look for ingredients for Japanese dishes I make for myself, I get super self-conscious and always wait until the aisle is completely empty because I am deathly afraid that someone is going to call me out on it or will give me a snickering glance. It is a stupid fear but I still have it.

I made a visit to the hospital today regarding my broken leg. The cast comes off in a week. I don't ever want to have one of those on again, they are really annoying.

While there, I got scrutinized which was uncomfortable. I recently got some bad bruises on my neck from another accident, and they kept thinking I tried hanging myself and were treating me real weird. I was worried they'd have me assessed or something, but I made up some bullshit story about why they were there. At least I got home without any more bothers.

My mind is all over the place today from my anti-psychotic medications, and I feel like shit from all the odd thoughts I'm getting. I feel like everyone knows the type of awful person I am and are out to get me because of it. I want to flee to France or something and become someone else but I'm too poor.

I decided to spend the rest of the afternoon baking bread to keep me distracted from it all. Oatmeal and honey goes together so well.

Today I saw a psychologist and set up his fax machine. He lectured to me (on my request) about the human soul and morality and ethics among other things. Some bullshit happened and I decided again that I just want to lock myself into my room with my books and my tea and sleep for the next few days... the amount of pure crap there is everywhere is just so depressing and frustrating. We live in a society that will try to shove as much as it can down your throat as possible only to wonder later on why it is that people feel ill. I guess I'm a rare case because stress and anxiety and any other bad feelings I get will make me physically ill...

>>15269
What does it matter if people know that you're awful? At least they can form an honest opinion about you. The best state of mind we can have is one which portrays reality accurately; for that reason, lies and other forms of obfuscation from the facts are harmful to us. At the least, if you feel shame, it should be easier to change things about yourself you dislike because you are at least aware of your problems. Even if you don't care about other people, even if you don't care about yourself, it is important that you put thought and consideration into your actions so your memories will not torment you! Instead of asking yourself "what is the easiest thing I can do?" ask yourself "what is the best thing I can do?" I believe that only by immersing ourselves in our thoughts and making things clear to ourselves (our strengths, our weaknesses, our limits, our hopes, our fears) can we hope to progress! Shut yourself away from everything (people, books, internet, music, tv) with a notebook until your mind stabilizes and the bullshit fades away, that's what I do. You are only responsible for yourself in this world! Everything else around you will come and go, but you're stuck with yourself forever.

That's a pretty tricky thing. Especially when all I want is pursue self improvement and pleasure in my room with no (immediate) financial prospects.

As for the topic, I tried getting feedback/subscribers by messaging people who commented on a phantasy star online video.

I spent most of the day recovering from some heroin use. Sleeping, laying around for the most part. I tried reading but was too lazy. I don't think I achieved anything productive.

Yesterday I fapped like crazy, then looked at pictures of cute lolis, studied a bit and listened to music in bed. A good day. I also decided to start working on my French so I will only be speaking in French to my mother since she is fluent. Hopefully I'll improve.
Today I woke up at 12:00, ate, and am now waiting for the Euro matches to distract me for a bit. Later I will probably take a bath and study some more, and possibly read Dostoyevsky's The Gambler.

Heroin is great, I love it and don't want to give it up. It certainly turns me into an idiot, though, and has me doing things I wouldn't do otherwise.

Went out and spent $50 on tools so my mom could take apart her car and see what's up with it. However, we need the parts to fix it, which I'll have to go out and buy tomorrow. I just hope this doesn't run me too much, and that she'll pay me back. I doubt both of those.

Today I noticed that, sometimes, I forget to breath. I don't think this is an uncommon thing, though when I do forget to breath I just inhale a very large amount of air and then go for more time without breathing.

I do the same thing, oddly enough. Although it's not that I "forget to breath", but rather that I "feel" as if I don't need to breath during those moments.

Today I read the Upanishads and some other Indian philosophy. I find it quite beautiful and a lot of it agrees with me, although I'm too lazy to meditate. I went to a coffee store (cafe?) and talked with some strangers about what faith and Haruhi and all that meant to them and heard some interesting replies. It's remarkable how peoples' definition of "Haruhi" differs. Some people seem to envision a powerful man in the sky on a throne, some people say it's destiny, some say it's love or hope, or beauty. The way they justify their beliefs are even more interesting.

I also saw a drug dealer and he offered to sell me psilocybin mushrooms at a very low price, so I saw no reason not to buy them. Drugs alter the way we perceive reality, so using them helps us understand our perceptions better, I reasoned. As long as I have money and don't become an addict, there's no good reason to avoid them.

I'll finish off the day by watching Upotte! and Nyaruko, writing another 20 pages or so in my notebook on my various philosophical and religious musings, and trying some of those magic mushrooms. All in all, I would say that it has been a perfect day; everything's gone as it should, and everything has been enjoyable. I don't know why, but for the past few days I've felt quite contented with both myself and the world. It'd be nice if this feeling never went away...

It's not about will. You will go into a delusional mental state, I mean, that is what you are after if you consume shrooms. I once knew a person who ended up being hit by a car because he was completely out of himself and on the streets. No matter how much attention you put into it before using something like that, there is always the large possibility that something will go wrong. Or maybe not, maybe nothing will even happen. I guess that is the fun of it.

I woke up real early today, went for a little stroll, and then did some heroin. Later I made amends with someone close to me who recently hurt me. Things are feeling right.

The remainder of the day I spent trying to keep awake, as I was pretty tired, while passing time. My sleep cycle is the biggest mess because I can't rely on an alarm clock anymore.

I watched some Kino's Journey, and then read bits of "Egotism in German Philosophy" by George Santayana though I don't quite agree with many of his his assertions. Cleaned my loft up a bit, as well. Now I'm just waiting to sleep.

oh man mushrooms are kinda wacky. i did a few kinda dumb things but man that was neet. def not something i should do often tho, a bit woozy. i feel its almost over, still spacin out some. literally was trippin

>>15398
read the dhammapada and the upanishads, find good translations. short simple sweet cheap. it pretty much boils down to "be aware of shit and love everything, have faith in something, dont chase pleasure." pretty much waht ever religion says. its fun reading very poetic

heroin anon you seem to be using a lot, maybe you should get help or something. is everything okay? if you need someone to talk to, my email is up above. iknow some people whove used it, it really seems to fuck you up... i care, if it means anything.

I had yet another early awakening today. While I tried returning to sleep I figured there was no reason and decided to remain awake.

For the rest of the morning, I read the last of Descartes over some tea, then disseminating his ideas on Haruhi (which I thought were crap). I sat around on IRC while watching anime, then went out to buy some new notebooks to write in.

While out, I crossed a sidewalk sale of books outside some shop. Most were rubbish, but I got a few that looked interesting: a textbook on Kabbalah, an old collection of random essays and short stories, a nice looking edition of The Kings General, some Miguel Angel Asturias, some Melville shorts, another Steinbeck novel, and lastly a general text on ethics from someone at the University of Oregon.

After putting those books away in my library and contemplating a bit, I had a great idea to distract myself from heroin: I'll learn German. I've taught myself 3 other languages prior, so I don't think it should be too hard. In any case, at least I'll have something to do and if it helps me stop my drug habits, even better.

For the remainder of the day I'm going to take it easy with some drinks, because it is so damn hot out.

That's a good idea, to learn german.

Had a rad day for the most part, I suppose. Stayed up late, woke up early, played some DOTA in the afternoon, wrote some tonight. Some things change but the overall picture remains the same.

I talked with a guy online after drinking a bit. "Women these days are so depraved," this guy laments to me. "I used to think sex would make the loneliness go away [...] but now I can only look back and regret the past." He goes on to talk about how his job and life in general don't feel meaningful, although he earns good money and lives in a nice place. Strangely this makes me feel more contented with living as a shut-in... the Ford Driver life really ISN'T all it's cracked up to be.

Today was unbearably hot and uncomfortable. Since I have no AC, I sat in a cafe all morning leeching air conditioning and coffee, while writing about Stoicism and some other unrelated topics.

I bought a few text books on the German language, and a new fan since summer is here. Back at home I sat around watching anime, reading obscure short stories and got mildly drunk on some wine. I will just take it easy until I go to sleep.

Today I helped hang a bunch of paper Metapods in my little brother's room. Some were hung from the ceiling, others were taped to the walls, and a few were hidden away in his drawers.

I will leave a note on his door telling him to keep his room clean if he doesn't want bug infestations. Hopefully it'll convince him to finally clean his pigsty of a room.
