Confession: I've had mild bouts of depression since middle school. The only way I get through it is to ignore them. A big 'F*ck you' to my emotional state.

I agree with TigerX -- try to take your mind off of whatever is making you feel so awful.

Do not trust her. This video game will only make you more depressed. Its done that to me, as I suck terribly at it, yet cannot leave it be. I must get more achievements!

Hey now, Snakes on a Plane was awesome!

Confession: I went to see Snakes on a Plane at a special premire the day before it came out. And I chanted along with The Line. And I loved pretty much every second of the whole movie.

That makes entirely no sense to me. Feelings never leave. So I'm goign to assume you mean you haven't accepted the loss yet. Because it's ridiculous to think you can lose those feelings forever. They're always there. But i think you do mean you haven't accepted the loss.


Who are you talking to and what are you talking about? I totally understand how Rummy feels. I've been there. Several times. And sometimes, once you realize that person wasn't your soulmate, those feelings do go away. At least they do for me. I realize, of course, everybody's heart is built differently.


Er sorry for double posting, but i saw your post and i meant to more directly quote Rummy. And what i mean is, i understand his disposition, that standing makes sense to me, BUT the idea of feelings having to be entirely gone to continue makes no sense. I'm arguing what he's implying. I think if you haven't "got over" (lack of a better word) them then yes, Rummy makes perfect sense. But i don;t think you can ever forget/lose (one of those 2) those feelings permanently


background: We dated for two years, she was in school in a certain city, I was here in Massamachusetts which is her homeland. She graduated. I own a house here, have a great job, both of our families are here. I coaxed her into moving in for a month after her graduation because she still didn't have permanent plans to move back here. At the end of the month she was going to head back to the city whose name I do not speak. I took it as rejection and we broke up. That was over a year ago. We had since remained friends, almost exclusively online or via telephone machine. Over labor day weekend we hung out with her family in Maine. Nothing of note happened, it was just awesome to see her. When I finally had to leave it was really painful. If I was convinced she was my soulmate I'd move, but I'm not. I think we got cut off too soon though, and I'll always wonder.

The girl I'm dating is ready to make it not so casual, so I think I'll spill the beans soon and save the two of us a lot of trouble.

also, yes, they were silver slippers, as The Wizard of Oz was written as a parable on populism in the late 19th early 20th century when farmers were pushing for a gold and silver standard for the American dollar


Actually... L. Frank Baum hated populism.
The Wizard of Oz can be interpreted as a parable on populism. But, you can interpret things a lot of ways. It was not written as such.

"Littlefield's political interpretation of The Wizard is belied by Baum's known political views. Far from supporting the Populist Party, Baum opposed it as detracting from the strenght of the Republican Party, which he supported editorially in his newspaper and by his votes throughout his life, so far as is known; he opposed free silver as editor of the Pioneer and published pro-McKinley, pr-Gold Standard verses in the Times-Herald in 1896..." (Katharine M. Rogers, L. Frank Baum - A Biography, page 265).

Confession: I obviously have no soul because Requiem for a Dream did not seriously affect me at all. I didn't get depressed because, well, I'm not a heroine addict, so my world looks nothing like the characters'. Also, the movie taught a lot about ill-gotten gains and what they come to. I actually felt quite uplifted after watching it. I walked away with "my reality does not suck and it is due to making some not-so-bad decisions".

It's not like they were a victim of circumstance. They got themselves into drugs and dealing, then, when it dragged them down, they had the brilliant idea of getting out of it with more drugs and dealing. I just can't relate to people like that.

I suppose, as someone who doesn't see anything inherently evil about drugs, I didn't get the protective dehumanization of "they are doing bad things and bad things are happening to them".

I think it just had a worse effect on me because the number of parrallels I could draw from it. i.e. Imagine if that were really your situation while watching.
Also, possible lack of sleep at the time may have contributed, I can't remember.

Confession: I can't help but be annoyed at my lack of ability to put some continuity and smooth flowing points to an debate. I just finished typing up a post in "Guys that hit girls", but i'm displeased with the quality and wording of it. I havn't had to write essays for like 4 years now and my ability to do so has degraded to misused grammar; What sounds like common argument, due to lack of emphasis on parts that i'm strongly implying; It just being a collection of random points with some vauge level of understanding showing and little continunity.

I suppose, as someone who doesn't see anything inherently evil about drugs, I didn't get the protective dehumanization of "they are doing bad things and bad things are happening to them".


I don't think drugs are "inherently evil" at all. I don't think french fries are inherently evil, either, but if you are fat because you eat too many of them, then feel the need to whore your girlfriend out for them, you can't blame 'fate' for the bad things that follow.

You're knocking out all the justifications that let me believe you're a human being, and not a robot of some sort...

I guess I just don't entirely lose empathy for someone because they make a poor choice.
