Me too. That's what happens when you replace the people you'd be talking to IRL with the internet.

Speaking of which:

T'was a good day today yesterday. Great even. Got to give two very emotional FUCK YOU's without actually saying it.

Laid a friend to rest and said my piece. It felt like a huge load was lifted off my shoulders. His parents and school chums are pissed at me, oh well, to hell with them, we were his real friends and he willed everything to us.

After the funeral, our old racing mentors physically dragged me and the rest of us to the old kart track for some "therapy". It actually worked, though it took 30 minutes of flying hot laps and for them to tell me that I just set the overall track record, which ex-Best Friend held for 6 years. Even better was that she was racing right beside me, and the only thing she could do was watch as I passed her. She winced each and every time; I just felt better and better.

I shouldn't feel happy right now, but I do. I feel like such a shitty person, but I shouldn't, or should I? I don't think that watching someone you love(d?) self-destruct in front of you should be this enjoyable, if so at all, especially since I'm self-destructing a bit too.

Oh well, I haven't had a swig of alcohol in nearly 23 hours and that's all that matters to me for now.



Yeah, I always feel like self-destructing, I just rarely have the chance. Once I graduate, I'll see how far I'll go in self-destructing. Even when I'm happy the thought pervades my mind. You know, I want to just get drunk or high 90% of the time, unfortunately my options are limited. So my parents think I'm doing fine on that front, when really I'm not.

It's kind of odd. I'm not depressed like I was when I complained before, but I still just want to lose control of everything. And I just know it's gonna happen eventually.

The whole self-destruction thing is quite new to me and my friends. Events of late have rocked us all to our cores, I've been hit hard, but by no means the hardest. It doesn't help any of us that there are several striking parallels between the recent happenings and things that happened 3-5 years ago. It's kinda like how MJ's will and his memorial were on the same day only 7 years apart, except in my case, it's a whole lot freakier and depressing. None of us have really gone really far with this self-destruction thing, it's just that we're all sitting on the edge, and have been doing so for a few months now. It's just that we're all so tense that we can never totally let go and be happy for too long if we can at all.

Lithium33 wrote:You know, I want to just get drunk or high 90% of the time, unfortunately my options are limited. So my parents think I'm doing fine on that front, when really I'm not.

Honestly, I don't want to get drunk or high that often, it's just that I find it to be the last resort as I often can't find anybody close to talk to. My parents pretty much know what's going on in my life, but just not how hard it's been on me lately, so they've quite wisely deferred the handling of my case to the closest people in my life, my friends. I find myself to be extremely lucky like that.

Lithium33 wrote:It's kind of odd. I'm not depressed like I was when I complained before, but I still just want to lose control of everything. And I just know it's gonna happen eventually.

I know the feeling quite well, at least I think that I do. Karting has taught my friends and I how to walk that fine line between being in control and losing it. You're right, it does happen eventually, however, when it does, all you can do (as I've been told by my mentors) is find some grip, push hard and settle into a nice groove until next time. This is how my friends and I generally approach things in life. I want to lose control, however, each time that I'm on the cusp of doing so my training takes hold of me, and if not, my friends do. I have a feeling that I'm overdue for a massive loss of control though, since that while you can save yourself from spinning out of control, you can't really do that each and every time and expect to walk away with no damage. One of these days, I'm thinking that the damage will just be too much, and I'll have to come in to pit for repairs.

Kinda unrelated: I have $500 on Barrichello beating Button today. Whilst the drinking has stopped, the gambling has not. Oh well, it's all in the family anyways.
If I get you angry, know that:
I have a talent at saying stupid things, either that or I'm drunk; and,
Normally I'd be ranting to my friends, but since they're gone, I have only the internet; and,
If I do this, call me out on it. Just don't call me crazy.

Yeah, when I think of self-destruction, it's very personal, not involving other people. For example, right now a DXM high is hitting me, but I feel a little sick from the stuff I drunk. I feel stupid for doing this, but in a little while it'll be good, maybe I'll throw up. I don't really like myself right now.

While I agree with the overall theory of "Humans, as a general rule, are social creatures that need interaction as part of their lives", I disagree that you can say "All humans need friends"

I mean, if nothing else, that bit of our brains that needs social interaction from time to time is bound to fuck up in someone's system. The one extreme exists - people who tend to freak out and have panic attacks or cease being able to function properly if they don't get constant human interaction. They can get by for a time without it, but they'll need it eventually. I assume the opposite exists as well - while they can interact with other people fine, they need (and would prefer) to be left the fuck alone.

Worst part is this is someone I've wanted to ask out for a while, but I still chose going to a LAN party over her. Damn am I awkward.

Nah, she's only mildly interested in video games, and would probably spend the night pestering me about some baseball game that she'd be watching the night before. She did that once, while I was trying to work.

PROTIP: A simple "how's it going?" probably isn't best responded with "Well, [sports team] did great last night, [sports player] did [some sporty thing]. [sports, sports, sports, ad nauseum]".

Confession: I'm a guy who hates sports who is, ironically, interested in a girl who loves sports (at least baseball and possibly hockey). Thus far I haven't the heart to tell her I'm uninterested in sports, because it seems she isn't faking it (she regularly attends games and practically dresses entirely in sports uniforms, etc) and may be devastated that I don't share a key pastime of hers.

Spoiler:
Extra-secret confession, because I'm feeling kind of buzzed: If I do work up the courage to ask her out, and it works out well, I'm ashamed my father (who's a bit of an asshat at times, but overall a great fellow), may start to call her the "son I never had". Yep, he's ashamed I'd rather play with the computer than watch a football game, and would probably revel in having someone to share his pastime with, while casually mentioning at every opportunity how "unmanly" I am. I often wonder if that plays into my awkwardness around her...

Haha this is an interesting conundrum. How much do you hate sports? If it's really active hatred, I can't see the relationship working out. If you just don't care that much, it'll be fine, just find some other common ground then. There are lots of sports-crazy guys who go out with girls who can't care less about sports, so there's that. Or try to take at least a partial interest in the things she's doing, because if this girl is as crazy about sports as you say, she will want to go to baseball/hockey games with you. This is an odd gender reversion.

And if you can't get over it, well, she's a plus for a lot of other guys.

Ah yes I agree with you. But what I was refering to was the "troubled" part. She obviously desired to have someone to talk to and confide in but was considering Isolation to spare her friends the trouble, which I still claim is no good alternative.
And as far as Isolationism goes, I guess I could argue that you get your social needs fulfilled on the internet. It's not like the internet or my post walked up to you and demanded conversation ;). But I'd feel like I'm trolling. As with every "rule" when it comes to humans there must be exceptions.

Confession: I recently looked in a full-length mirror and didn't like what I saw. Don't know whether it was hypoglycemia or not (hadn't eaten for 10 hours), but my profile looks like a somewhat overweight woman, and my face is decidingly pale. If I didn't have such a gigantic penis wasn't so self-confident, I probably wouldn't have prepared a joke about it to tell my friends at a later date (going to pretend I was a woman all along, and insist on it being true for as long as possible).

If you just don't care that much, it'll be fine, just find some other common ground then. There are lots of sports-crazy guys who go out with girls who can't care less about sports, so there's that. Or try to take at least a partial interest in the things she's doing, because if this girl is as crazy about sports as you say, she will want to go to baseball/hockey games with you. This is an odd gender reversion.

And if you can't get over it, well, she's a plus for a lot of other guys.


I really don't like sports, although I'm fine if I have something interesting to think about while sitting there. I'm perfectly willing to sit through a game so long as she doesn't actually expect me to be anywhere near as enthusiastic about it as she will be. Sort of like how (most) guys (I know) don't like to be dragged to the theatre or symphony, and will just sit there pretending to like it because they like her.

Confession: I really like the theatre and symphonies. Knowing my luck, she'll find them to be unbearable.




Confession: I've lately had a serious desire to drink some Earl Grey while reading a book. Preferably I'd do this in a room reminiscent of a 19th century study. I'm either the most awesome person I know, or the lamest. I choose the former.

That'd make an awesome sig. Unfortunately, I'm sure self-sigging isn't allowed...

You have your music, she has her sports. I'm sure that you'd be happy if she went to see the orchestra with you. That said, I'm pretty sure that she'd just be happy that you're there at a game. You're giving up some of you're own time to spend with her; who doesn't like it when somebody else sacrifices their time to spend it with them anyways?

Besides, after a while, I'm sure that sports will grow on you and the symphony will grow on her. Pretty sure.

I have done this quite a few times. The first time, I spent the rest of the day acting all snooty and talking like Captain Picard though it was probably due to the fact that I was in Britain reading a Star Trek book, it also probably didn't hurt that I was also coming off a massive sugar rush. The other times though, ended normally.


Fuck. Now I've forgotten what I was gonna say when I got here. Damn.
If I get you angry, know that:
I have a talent at saying stupid things, either that or I'm drunk; and,
Normally I'd be ranting to my friends, but since they're gone, I have only the internet; and,
If I do this, call me out on it. Just don't call me crazy.

Not really. As long as it's literally/musically sound, I'll probably watch/listen to it. I mostly just attend local events, so my experience (especially in theatre), is extremely limited. The various local arts groups (if you could call them that) don't perform often, and usually just pick some popular works when they do perform. Still, it is fun, and I'm sure as I branch out from the local events (don't really have the money to travel far right now), I'd be better able to answer your question.

To stem the obvious question (why don't I join a local troupe/orchestra?), I'm not particuarly (or even at all) good at acting or playing an instrument. That is all.

Sounds like a plan.

That sounds awesome. I'm going to have to do that at least once, just to see the looks on people's faces.

Not like it's against the rules or anything, but it's like wearing spandex. You want to be very, very sure of what you're doing before you do it.

For some reason, I just imagined you in spandex after I read this.
