And once you've done it for so long that you're out of news, especially good news, to tell the people you meet regularly, you begin to avoid them even more.
Wow, dude, you really hit at least one of these nails right on the head, there. That's probably one of the biggest factors to all of my feelbads.   
Anxiety and depression are self-feeding sicknesses. The more they affect your life, the more you're embarrassed by those effects being observed, the more you isolate yaself, and the worse the whole dang thing gets. Bleh. Thanks for the kind words, hope things improve on your end sometime soon as well.   

Maybe I should try learning an instrument again...

Ah, these things; I have things I want to say to perhaps offer you perspective, but I fear that what works for me wonít work for someone else. Perhaps my fear is more shining a light on how little ambition I have and the means through which I make my life easier, rather than better...

... but anyway, changing perspective might be a useful, if challenging thing. Rather than figuring out what things would make your life... more, I guess is the right word? Rather than that, figure out how to be happy with what you are and what you have.

It is at this point the yawning chasm between what that actually means and how to do it rears its head. Mindfulness is a most important skill to have, particularly when it comes to being aware of your own thoughts, motivations, and changing them.

Coincidentally I'm holding back on two things that were very high up the list when I quit my job: veggiegarden, and music production... let's just say having neighbours that practically live in their garden doesn't make it any easier for me. Another 6 precious months lost avoiding judgement for something which would probably occupy the minds of the people around me  for about 15 seconds. God even the things I could brag about i'd rather that nobody sees me doing them like I didn't bring it over me to mention to hans I've been doing some exercises too and that it's getting even more regular,joke about soreness that will pass, like I couldn't just casually mention that - despite all the overly personal, inflamatory and intangential stuff I allready dared write around here... I swear I do em when I'm sure there is nobody around.

I guess the lesson is don't be a silly manchild like me? Have a nice day Imma try to sleep now, it is getting comfortably chilly (the weather has been nuts I need to go out!).




Oh that response was brilliant Hector, that's how I manage when I do. Or used to? Things are a bit different since I "rejoined the system". Now I own stuff and feel bad that I don't make the most of it. I tried to mention once the causal relationship between ambition and depression, but IRC my foul-mouthed manner just opened a can of worms. It's one of those topics I'm too passionate about.

Aah this is the story of my resocialisation, little did I know I hadn't met rock bottom yet..... lol ok nightnight now for realz see y'all around and thanks likewise

A lot of my countrymen didn't knew the meaning of xenophobia a few years ago. A lot of them know it now. It's sad, this country used to receive virtually anyone with open arms and the saving grace of this place was despite the violence and corruption we never EVER had a sliver of racism or xenophobia. Welp, cet's la vide mon ami.

Also didn't managed to get back but a single movie besides the ones saved on a flashdrive. At least that's enough for peter we the power is in.

I'm curious as to how a tank would evolve. Would it climb out of the primordial ooze wiggling it's track-nubs, feeding on smaller jeeps before crawling onto the shore having evolved proper treds?

Or get a needy pet. Like a herding dog. It's way easier to give a shit about someone else (especially a pet, because they aren't usually dicks) than yourself, and it's a motivation to get up and do things. Mine has a chair next to my computer chair, so she can let me know when I've been there too long (which is most of the time, if I'm being honest).

Mindfulness is a most important skill to have, particularly when it comes to being aware of your own thoughts, motivations, and changing them.

Unless you've got some sort of trauma thing, like PTSD. Mindfulness is not great when your thoughts, motivations, etc. are mostly terror.

Racism and xenophobia are tools used by people in power to keep the citizens fighting each other instead of the people in power. The rise in it makes it look like a lot of governments are afraid of their citizens right now.

Who the actual fuck designed bowties?

Secondary question: Who the actual fuck designed all these guides on how to tie bowties? They all seem to have a single step that is very much "Draw the rest of the owl". I can do all the folds, but nothing goes into depth about the fucking loop you stick the second bow into. NOTHING. I can't find a fucking loop. Even better, one fucking guide I found assumes that you're somehow able to make the fucking bow tie go *inside* your chest to get that second bow. It took me some time to work that one out.

"The bow tie originated among Croatian mercenaries during the Thirty Years' War of the 17th century: the Croat mercenaries used a scarf around the neck to hold together the opening of their shirts."

There you go. Let me know if you''d like any other overly literal answers to your clearly rhetorical questions.

You silly lunatic, you. You don't tie bow ties. You clip them onto your shirt with that handy clip they have.
And if your bow tie doesn't have a clip, then it's broken and you should file a complaint to the vendor that sold it to you (to get a refund), a second one to the Smug Fancymen's Neckfrills Association (for promoting this shit), and yet another to your senator (to hopefully ban it).

I appear to be one of the unlucky people affected by the side effects of SSRIs.

In this instance, nausea.

I was supposed to be going somewhere else today, but I can't drive when every time I yawn I have to spend 10 seconds trying my damndest not to gag.

What do you mean one of the unlucky people? Have you never read the little pamphlet you get in it? It usually lists the proportion of folk who get various side-effects, from most to least common.

I do hope it goes away though; I refused to take medication after a few years on them Ďcause Iíd rather feel deep loathing for myself than deal with the side-effects.

I don't know what an SSRI is, and choose to believe that it means "Super Saiyan Rhode Island". When did this happen? How long was I asleep?!

Jokes aside, sorry that this (probably a medication) is making you feel that way. Hate it when you have to choose between nasty side effects and going without meds.

Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor. Anti-depressant, that tries to elevate the levels of serotonin in yer brain.

Unfortunately there are serotonin receptors in yer brain, central nervous system, and yer gut, so the side effects can be unpleasant and wide ranging, but much better than MAOIs, which if I recall correctly stands for MonoAmine Oxidose Inhibitor, Ďcause Iím too lazy to check.
