You know, I think it's a lot worse for those of us with the means and will to do the 2AM blitz.
This comic has changed my life... Everything's still exactly the same as it was before I saw the comic, but yet it's all changed. I now understand that I'm on an overloaded, 10 mile long freight train with no brakes, loaded with flammable materials, on fire, careening down a 33% grade at 150mph headed towards a washed out bridge over a motherfucking volcano called despair. I may as well enjoy the motherfucking ride.
.... But I still don't have the balls to go.
pros/cons chart man, make a pros/cons chart.
also, the analogy to your life you used is probably the most metal thing I have ever heard, ever. I almost headbanged.
except for "despair". if you had named your volcano "dinosaur" or "awesome" or something, that would be the breaking point.
and the thing is, here's really your options:
A) wild life changing move which will probably fuck up your life on multiple fronts (the bad kind of fucking up)
B) don't move. forget about her. it sounds impossible and you've heard it a thousand times, and i haven't even done it myself, but you can try. I had a solid string of no-go relationships, and my friend told me, "you know, if you try, and even if your failure rate is 98%, you just have to keep going until you meet that 2%." it sounded like shitty advice, but it's worked. (this isn't the most relevant advice, but it goes to show that not all advice which looks bad on the surface really is.)
also, on another note, does english requiring that sentences end within the quote bother anybody "like this?"
it's the exact opposite of "programming"; // and it angers me
I recommend filling soccer balls with napalm. Napalm is nature's toothpaste.
