If anything, that has made things worse for me.
It has always been easy to get thoughts across, but the problem is my grammar always seems unnatural, to the point I have plenty of embarrassing memories of others asking me if I'm a Slav based on the structures I make use of. On the rare occasions I don't screw up with grammar and syntax, I spend much more time writing a comment than someone else normally would, just to make sure everything is in place and order (that would be the case with this post).
I'm not into making excuses for being dumb, but I suppose that's because most people on the internet aren't English speakers themselves, which means "learning" a language from people who can't speak it very well in the first place. And many of the native speakers make mistakes too which, deliberate or not, will be mimicked by non-speakers.

>most people on the internet aren't English speakers themselves
I seriously doubt this. A lot of them might have English as a second language but have been learning English from a young age.
Its selection bias. As someone from a backwater English speaking country I assume everyone online is American unless they use British colloquialisms.

Mine too, and I was born/raised in the US. Not sure if it's my mental issues or the lack of human interaction but I tend to slur my words, mix them up, or trip over my sentences and say stupid nonsensical things while generally sounding like a retard.
my spelling meanwhile is horrid and hasn't improved much as I've gotten older.

I can read nearly everything.
I can understand most things I listen to (not every accent).
I take to much time to write shit and I make a lot of mistakes that lead into me taking more time to write something.
And I'm awful at speaking English. I need to much time to find the right words and I do accidentally use German words all the time.
So basically:
reading/listening 7-8/10
writing 5/10
speaking 3/10

Maybe because I read English stuff all day and also listening to English content but I rarely write my self and I don't talk at all.
I do have a lot of basic every day words I don't know in English like basic plant or animal names because I never use them anywhere.

Still better than 99% of all Japanese.

I hope one day my Japanese will be nearly as good as my English.

What was the happiest moment of your life, TC?
16 posts and 1 image omitted. Click Reply to view.
>> No. 23420 [Edit]
There never was a happiest moment, but rather a recollection I have of happy moments.
When I was a teen, I got a failing grade in High school, as I was walking down the road to my home to report to my parents, I had my head held up high as I knew I was a capable young man, so no matter what the outcome I get didn't matter, and I had a smile. This was one of those fleeting moments of hapiness
I had some more, but this one just resurfaced today and I was extremely happy, thinking if I ever will get back to those dreamlike days.

I have become stronger, more knowledgeable and capable in the past 5 years since, but I have also become more robot like. I am tough as nails now, but I don't really want to become that way any more because I loved being able to feel things and living my life according to emotions.

Whatever happens, I will stay myself, but I hope, I do it with spirit and love again.
>> No. 23424 [Edit]
Talking to a friend.
>> No. 23426 [Edit]
The happiest time of my life is when I read the visual novel Dal Segno. I got very deeply infatuated with Hazuki, and even now I still remember the warmth and happiness I felt.
>> No. 23428 [Edit]
Close to the end of high school, I made my first actual friends. On one hand it was nice to be treated like a human being for once, and the more time I spent with them the better things became. But with graduation around the corner, I knew our friendships wouldn't last long. That, and when it ended I started to feel empty. It left me wishing that I could have met these people much earlier and been friends with them for longer. Probably would have avoided a lot of depression and bullying that way. Probably would have grown into a healthy adult.

Do you feel empty? Not really happy, not really sad, but alien and different from your surroundings. Only spiced up by the occasional shame brought about by base desire like lust and hunger. Like there's just nothing there at all within you.

Life feels like a boring monitor stream that I can't really get engaged in and don't have any feeling towards. Like the blinking screen of some phone on display at a cell service store, dull and noteworthy.
>> No. 23412 [Edit]
Very often in life. I don't think it's that uncommon? Some probably just pass the time better with TV and Youtube. I suppose in many cases I am actually grateful for my imagination and violent inner desires, they make me feel less empty from time to time.
>> No. 23413 [Edit]
Yeah, to be honest. Even when I do things to distract and lie to myself, I know deep inside that there isn't anything that can help me.

Also, fuck the people that say "first world problems". These cocksuckers shouldn't disregard anyone's problems just because it isn't a problem to them.

So TC I've been trying my best to deal with my mental issues and keep going. Around 10 months ago I joined a small online community of people (to try and learn how to socialise on non imageboards/IRC) with a similar niche interest(?) and things mostly went okay. However around 4 months ago I started to notice increasingly people on it making fun of me, and outright insulting me thinking I wouldn't realise it due to my autism. Fast forward to now, I've left the community. I just feel completely lost, I thought those people actually cared about me but clearly they didn't, and my mental condition is worse than it has been in a long time. What do I do when the foundation for my "getting better" turns out to be a lie that only hurts me more? I'm sorry for this stupid personal blogpost, but you guys are the only place I can turn to.

Yes it was my first real experience with discord, I should have on retrospect seen the warning signs of the original purpose becoming eroded. I told them briefly about my husbando when an off-topic discussion ended up with on waifuism, I regretted it. I really don't mean to sound rude in this, but thank you for telling me what I guess I already knew, just couldn't bring into words, I hope I can help you with any issues you have one day anon.

TC IRC has had a lot of people that were dicks in my experience.

>mentally ill people with vicious dispositions

This has been my experience with some people on TC IRC, but not everyone of course. And for some of them they just seemed so depressed that they were lashing out.
>> No. 23385 [Edit]
Been lurking the TC IRC for a while. I have only seen one (1) person who had anything close to a "vicious disposition" and they were ultimately banned. For the rest the lashing out are extremely rare. Unless you count being vicious people who don't participate in a hugbox, I don't see how your assessment is anywhere near accurate.
>> No. 23386 [Edit]
I worded that too harsh, sorry. Most people in TC IRC have been friendly and polite. I'm also thinking of years ago, things have changed a lot there. I guess I was caught up on times I've initiated more private conversation in PMs. The group chat is not vicious or anything minus one person who was extremely depressed and alcoholic and would shit on people for a while (this stopped as far as I know). Most people are not going to be huge dicks openly, I think, unless they have nothing to lose and don't mind making themselves an enemy in the group. What is more common is passive aggressiveness and subtle trolling, but I believe even that is much rarer lately.

how come japanese are better than me at everything?
have you looked at videos of arcades there? have you seen their innate musical talent? their innate drawing talent?
junior high schooler shit scribbles in notebooks while going to the bathroom look better than anything i've ever drawn and i actually practice and they don't.
even the women there are better at games than me. normalfag women that are going to college and have a part time job stop at the arcade once in a while and fucking destroy the arcade machines. the arcade is their only practice and it's like 30 minutes a week at best. me, i have been playing rhythm and fighting games for YEARS and i own the home console version, i dont have to go to the arcade miles away like they do, for eight hours a day i practice and i have made barely any noticeable improvement.
no, i don't have an inferiority complex, it's true, there is video evidence of this happening everywhere and i seriously have been playing project diva since 2012 and still can't perfect any extreme songs.
not only that but i am limited to the few games i know and would have to start all of my work over again if i were to move to a different game. them, the fighting game community there, there are some guys that join tournaments for several different games. they can juggle them all no problem.
they cook their own food, they go to school, they go to work, they clean, they study, they watch anime, they all usually have a project going on like writing a book or developing a game or running their own website where they post their drawings, they have drinks with friends ALL IN ONE DAY and they still also have time to be better than me at every single conceivable thing without any practice.

i hate them, anyone that's not japanese might as well have not been born, they're human perfection and they do more in one fucking afternoon than i do in years.

In asia they tend to spend time getting very good at one thing, while in the west it's usual to spread your time across many different things.

Because Japans culture promotes a ridiculous work ethic and heavily shames those who do not conform, then they kill themselves at 30 because of the stress. Do not worry so much about comparing yourself with other people, try and improve for your own sake. I know that's difficult.
This particular attitude took root in Japan because there is a culture of craftsmanship. In the past, you would study under a master at your craft, be it making sushi, woodworking, farming, whatever. These are jobs that are important, rewarding and technically challenging. This was the way things were in Japan for centuries, in fact it's quite common in a lot of Asian cultures. However, once technology improved and a lot of those jobs became heavily automated or up-scaled this attitude was now applied to unfulfilling, useless, boring jobs. This is how the "sallaryman" came to be. This culture of hard work in crafts, when transferred to a modern office environment was exploited by government and companies because it's great for making a profit. However, since these new jobs are comparatively unfulfilling, with little room to learn or grow and ultimately little purpose outside of profits, it leads to a lot of stress. Hikkikomori is the direct result to this, people who drop between the cracks of that society who can't bring themselves to work like that. In the past, those people would have trained and become contributing members of society, but now they have nowhere to go.
>> No. 23279 [Edit]
>Hikkikomori is the direct result to this

Not necessarily. Recluses have existed since the dawn of time. As long as there has been social groups, there have been hermits and loners who tackle life on their own. The only difference now is that parents and government find it acceptable to put up with it, so the "hierarchy" is different (a hiki being maintained), but the principle is the same. Additionaly, hikis exist outside of Japan too (whatever you might want to call them).
>people who drop between the cracks of that society who can't bring themselves to work like that.
That would refer more to NEETs than Hikikomori.
>> No. 23328 [Edit]
I think you are correct, NEET would have been a better word to use instead.

changed my mind on this. my dad's abuse made me into the man i am today. the man who loves his waifu very much. trauma develops mental illness and mental illness develops strong obsessive bonds with fictional characters.

instead i would go back to the 8th grade alternative school for retards and criminals where I met a kid named Earl and a kid named Abe. these are their real names, not ones made up for the sake of the story. if either of you are here, which is possible since you were both fucked up people too, i am sorry.
i was on a lot of psych meds and my parents had just split and i had no friends and spent my free time outside of school crying and playing video games in the dark and stuffing my fucking fat face with food. and i took it out on people. i beat people up and made people suffer cause i was suffering.
the stereotypes about "bullies are just insecure bigger losers than you!" is 100% fucking true. you were both better people than me.
i think about you two little retards all the time even though it's been a decade now. i respected you both and thought you were cool and i have no idea why i had the compulsion to punch the shit out of you and make fun of you for being poor. i was poor too. i was living in welfare apartments. i'm sorry.
i'd go back and stop myself from being mean to them. their lives were already a piece of shit.

i hope stopping myself from being a bully wouldnt have a butterfly effect and make me have never fallen in love with my waifu.....

There is something relatable to this post and I don't know what it is. I wasn't abused and don't have a waifu.
