Other people's blood bothers me a fair bit, for whatever reason. Not fond of it on TV, on animals, people, meat... much of anything. Photorealistic/real life gore in general is just a sort of "Y'know, I'd just rather not, thanks."

My own blood doesn't have nearly as much effect, though. At one point I was bleeding basically constantly for about six months straight (surgery that was found to be bungled after a few months, necessitating a second surgery and recovery -- don't listen when they say you're good to be sewn back up right after the surgery, folks), and by the time that got wrapped up I think I was pretty much used to it.

Meetup.com requires me to post a pic of my ugly mug before it'll actually let me participate in whatever is on there.  I don't have any pics of myself, and I don't feel like bothering just to attend one thing.

Weird.  I wonder if I still have an account there, I have barely used it since college but it was pretty useful back then.  I don't remember uploading my face, sounds like a relatively new thing they might demand if I log back in.

My municipality is the florida of my country. I swear folks here are so noticeably dumb it's more than statistically relevant. If you ever wondered what's wrong with me there is your answer.

I travelled through a suburb of single-family houses to get to a suburb of apartment complexes further out today. Luckily this isn’t my commute, but increasing that for tens of thousands (and even more as the city grows) for the sake just a couple of thousands is still horrible city-planning. And sure, there are some valid arguments that cities shouldn’t get too dense, but then put a park people can actually use there instead, instead of a relative desert of houses with green bits only available to their owners.

The other day a friend suggested the First Law books from Abercombe, taking up his suggestion I went and found a boxed set on bookdepository, wasn't too expensive so I went heck it, I'm getting near the end of the Black Company books so I might as well started one something new. Ordered the set on thursday, today I get an e-mail from them informing me they're having a big week long sale on a bunch of things. Wanna guess which set of books is at about 50% off compared to what I paid for? With discounts on other stuff as well I could've bought another 3 books for the same money :(

I considered it but the damn things shipped already, making the whole thing a hassle not worth going trough as I'd had to ship the stuff back out of my own pocket.

I'm just feeling really depressed today.

Like, I want to know how people... are motivated? About anything? Like I'm telling my friend that I don't know what to do with myself, and he recommends "Maybe going back to school?" but I don't have the heart to tell him "Who fucking cares? Why should I care about anything like that? Putting myself out there for any reason is just morally heinous. Doing so is me exposing myself to the innate evil of society; and exposing society to the poison that is my own existence. I'm so negative that adding myself to anything is not an addition but a subtraction."

Though I know I'm being melodramatic and shitheaded. Living just feels so futile, cause it just feels like I'll never care about anything to actually be motivated to do anything, and therefore nothing will validate my existence, and therefore there was no point to ever being born.

Most every day I feel I'm just waiting to get old and die.

Also been in a mood for weeks now.

After getting royally pissed off at my shitbag friend for what he's done and said around work, and him getting fired, I was drained. But now I feel empty and unmotivated. Been having problems sleeping, my appetite has been out of whack. Work has been super busy and that has taken a toll, and hanging out with my friend group has been hard to do, both because of his presence and for how I feel about the whole thing. I've been steadily withdrawing from my friends circle because when I'm not happy or feeling right, I honestly don't want to be around other people. But it's been going on long enough now people are starting to notice and ask questions, which makes me want to retreat even more. Started working out again but it's pretty sporadic, the recovery is slow and I seem to find a dozen emotional/energy excuses not to fully commit to it.

I dunno. Long covid? Changing seasons? The fact I'll be 40 this year? There's a lot of things going on that are dragging me down and I keep hoping that next week I'm going to shake off whatever has been dogging me emotionally.

About the only thing that motivates me right now is my own personal fun. My escapes are still something I look forward to most days, unless I've done something like called in sick for work which makes me feel guilty.

Bottomline, to me though, survival is its own reason. I'm not the "lay down and die" type of person. Survival and a reasonable amount of comfort, and maintaining those things, are usually enough to get me out of bed everyday and do well at work.

I guess JoshuaFH, you need to spend some time thinking about what you actually want and what you're willing to do for it. For me, I still want to achieve my "ideal body" so the gym and eating right and maintaining a good diet are still important to me. It's just rebuilding the momentum on the gym side that has been tougher than I anticipated it would be.

But the idea that someone should just "care" about stuff they don't honestly want has always been foreign to me. Go back to school? Why the hell would I do that? To get a better job? Do I honestly want a better job? Not if it means putting myself back through more education.

When you find something you legitimately want, "putting yourself out there" just happens. Just like a job, or dating or any of that stuff. The equation never makes sense if the legitimate desire isn't there on one of side of it.

That's basically it, I call them my obsessions,but they are nothing special, a bit particular at best. I can fall into deep holes when I'm done with one obsession and don't have another in sight... I need things to look or work towards to, to have a sense of purpose, even if it's just a new game or a classic I longed to replay that gets me hyped to get infront of the pc. Thing is from time to time vydia don't cut it and I need to do stuff with my hands and not my mind. I consider myself in dire lack of motivation generally, but these things can make whole weeks fly by.

TBH I also think it's toxic to aspire towards motivation... IDK maybe healthier people have wells of unspecified motivation to use on anything... Evenso I doubt they think of it as such, maybe it's about gritting one's teeth to everybody. To me it's more like: "this particular activity I don't mind for now, dunno about tomorrow though"


Also make sure you're not burned out, when that's the case I couldn't even care for things that should passionate me on a better day. If you are burned out: it is ok to just be, don't torture yourself with any preconceptions about what should be done; if you can enjoy baking in the sun that's enough too. It's a big issue of mine,. I can fell pretty worthless withouth any kind of personal achievement to show for the last 24h.
