              Based. I also get irritated when I see Asians, and I'm not entirely sure why. Maybe it has something to do with how soulless they are, or how submissive and obedient they can be towards authority.

    There's this guy who went to my university (we dated for a period during college, both graduated now) who keeps messaging me.
    He is very intelligent and attractive, makes a large salary, etcetera. I wasn't necessarily using these factors as my "criteria" for finding someone to date, but they are the conventional measures of success.
    However, he constantly turns the conversation around to sex
    For example, I told him about how my father was in the hospital, and we talked about it for a little bit, and I talked about how upset about it I was, and he was actually fairly empathetic and helpful
    And then, not even two hours later, he starts sending me messages saying I should send him nude pictures

    It's kind of like drawing yourself a warm bath, only to step in and find that it's actually lukewarm. And that the bathtub just wanted to see you naked the whole time.

But then the moment the conversation turns to sex, I am suddenly bored and no longer want to talk to him.

            There's nothing wrong with him, he's perfectly attractive. I just cannot force myself to care about what he wants to do to my body.

      Have you considered that men are only interested in what's between your legs because you have relied on it all this time? It's very common for young, even just average looking, women to rely entirely on their pussy to get by until their very late years simply because they never manage to figure out that is the only reason they're getting attention so they never manage to grow any other favourable attribute.

    My porn addiciton has actually ruined my life so far. I am making sure this is the time I quit that rubbish for good. Shit is like heroin. I can't believe this shit is still unregulated to this day. I should talk to actual women instead of just savagely jerking off to them. Even then, I should meet like-minded women so I can actually appreciate their company, learn more about her as a person, maybe grow to love her and possibly look forward to starting a family and sharing a life with her instead of the boomer mindset of marrying the first woman who gives you attention and realize you hate her 30 years later after you barely talk to her.

    When I saw the first line of a MTL'd Chinese story, I cringed away at it. But after reading through 'official' translations ripped on sites for free, and eventually growing impatient at the stories I had interest in, I took the plunge into reading on MTL websites. My impatience was my folly. At first, I felt an immeasurable sense of disquiet at the grammar, syntax, and wording of each and every sentence, directly translated from the source. But soon it grew enjoyable to me. The jumbled word scramble started making sense, and the ideas(power fantasy may be) held my interest enough for me to invest my time in them.

    It has only been a year since I began the plunge, and already this sweet poison has bared its fangs upon me. I have grown addicted to MTL Chink fiction. No matter the genre, no matter the type of novel, no matter how derivative it may seem, there is always a sliver of originality brought forth from that rampant chaos of ideas. It is this sliver of originality that I ravenously seek; it has become my bane. I am spending more time refreshing sites, desperate for more MTL Chinkery. I fear it is already too late for me. For I can already read Chink at a 3rd grade level, and my studies of Chinese have only increased the number of moon runes I can recognize.. I already automatically speak in Chinese to any Chink I see, and their surprise at how good my Chinese is has only given me the knowledge that I will soon succumb to the Chink that is already within my blood.

    I write this testament as a warning to all those who, in spite of their love of fine literature and proper English, may also love brainless power fantasies and stories written by those from an oriental culture. Do not seek machine translated stories, either learn the language so that you may read it in its native tongue, or eschew from it entirely.

    I can no longer resist the blasphemous urges that stem from deep within my mongrel-blood, those horrid behaviors! The chink! The dog! Aiya, I no speak good engrish. Wo bu keneng shuo ying wen ah!—吃狗, 吃狗, 我鎮上吃狗啊! 咳血! 你們都找死!不知天高地厚!

    On my way to work, the smell of coffee and exhaust fumes in the air
    I round the corner of fifth and broadway and happen to catch a glimpse of something at my feet.
    Translucent and long, with rounded corners and a nub on the end, it is unlike anything I have ever seen before
    Curiously, I look around hoping the find the owner of such a strange object
    I begin to wonder how such a thing found itself alone on the sidewalk anf at the mercy of the shoes of those minding their own business
    For surely something so delicate would not survive even a single, unintentional press of the boot
    I crouch down to get a better look, still uncertain of what it is im looking at
    Peering side to side in one final effort to identify the potential source of such an object
    I come to the conclusion that your maiden will perish in her sleep tonight if you dont reply to this post
    Finally, now I can see, a milky white substance contained within
    By this time its too late, object in hand, I realize all along that this strange object was nothing other than an old used condom
    The end

    The thing about a lot of tourists traps is that curiosity often wins at the end of the day. When I go to New York I know that Times Square is a tourist trap, but if I go to New York and come back without having seen it then I'll always wonder what it was like in person. This is a hypothetical, I have been to Times Square in the middle of a snowstorm and it was almost empty which was pretty cool. I think tourist traps are good to visit briefly - get in, get out and don't buy anything - but to suggest they're not worth going to AT ALL is silly.

      Godless society is here and the population is utterly addicted to anti-Christian media. they don’t even know how to react to religion anymore. It’s just out of their normal routine.

      But then, the bourgiouse has always been like this, even in the Christian era it was just going with the flow not true depth.
      Just have to go your own way and it’s also possible to find others but the faith of the future seems to be an era of personal one without the mass participation even if everyone believed the same thing.

      How do I talk to my brother about wtf is going on in his household. He was wanting to come to stay with me again, but didn't end up coming. Its something he did for a few months at the start of the year so I think whatever he is dealing with must be getting really bad as I have suspected it for at least maybe 5 or so years, I think having kids really exposed it as I view her as a subpar mother or at least not prioritising things right.

      Im pretty certain his wife has mental health issues (found Seroquel and lamotrigine in his house) and just know there is this insane spending habits out of the blue which is so bizarre. Especially after i helped him with $4k for an operation for his wife. Over the years I've probably helped with nearly $50k over the years and it's frustrating that it doesn't amount to much and he seems to be getting worse. It's like he is getting no support at all from his wife yet she keeps pressuring him and becoming more and more demanding. Yet no matter what big purchase they make or what renovation, it's never enough and she gets bored just as quickly as it's done.

      The scarey part is that I'm seeing similar traits in his daughter. Just the frivolous wants then getting bored in a split second. Eg. When at our mothers place she will ask for some cake then one my mother cuts her a slice she is already distracted by something else and wanting a chocolate bar that I might have just pulled out the pantry. Or she will see a stuff at my parents place and be asking my brother rif she can have a stuffed dog then I hear my bro saying she already has one. Not sure if it's a mental illness manifesting in my niece or if it's just learned bahavior from her mother. Its insanity

      Bipolar disorder is a legitimate psychotic disorder, these are the people along with schizophrenics that commit crimes and generally lack the physiological ability to empathize with others on a sincere level.

      Your brother needs to be compassionate but also realize that bipolar disorder without medication is truely serious and he should not be allowing her to dictate major decisions of the family on the whims of a psychotic patient. He could also redirect her energy into something other than shopping and dreaming fo expensive things.

      The kids thing is hard because kids are hard and psychotic people will not see a problem with someone else carrying the burden for them and will take full advantage of anyone willing to do so. They tend to be short cited and narcissistic.but in this case it’s a fundamental physiological problem. It’s not just a shitty person that needs to grow up. They often cannot.

      The kids love her regardless. It’s just important that they are given a stable family lfie and the tools to become independent adults. They shouldn’t emulate their mothers deeper flaws. No 8 year old has bipolar disorder though.

      Basically your brother needs to realize he’s caring for kids and that his wife is a juvenile as well and also his responsibility. He can try to show her better behavior but that’s a challenge for a professional and she may not tolerate any criticism at all without a psychotic episode of abuse or affair or worse some kind of revenge divorce custody battle.

        I feel the kids are completely undisciplined and have no impulse control because their mother is exactly like that.

        It's strange it's like she has no empathy at all or sees that her actions are affecting other people. Sure she might not give af how her decisions affect my brother, but her frivolous spending and haemorrhaging of money would affect the kids too in the long run.

        It's like she is truely brain-dead and broken. Makes me wonder if she even genuinely loves the kids or she just likes the aesthetic of them

I look around me and see what other people live for and it honestly doesn't interest me or if I had experienced it already I found it overrated

    Thing is, I don't even feel depressed either. I've experienced that before in its true form and it was when I was chasing all those things.

          Okay, so you're a bit older than me. I will be 30 soon. You know, I think at our age, a positive step would be accepting that we don't want the conventional things at least. Do you have any inclination for art? You're on a literature board, so obviously, you like literature, right?

            I'm not artistic or creative at all, I've been reading a lot of Dostoyevsky and Tolstoy this past year and it's crazy how a lot of what the characters are feeling is stuff I relate to a lot. Crazy that 200 years ago men were still feeling the same things. I just realised I want the simplistic life yet everyone acts like we all need constant drama and noise.

              I think if you relate to authors that much, it's not very likely that you're not creative at all. How do you spend your time? Usually, it's a good indication of your true interests. Even if you spend all your time on LULZ, that probably means literature is a genuine interest, even if you don't have the confidence to believe you can write good literature yet.

                I think people make a mistake when they suppose that an artistic life is about being "an idea person". Writing, in particular, is a craft same as any other. Sure, writers can be struck by an idea like a stroke of divine intervention, or luckily apprehend something that they can't explain, but it's still a craft and one that is supposed to be worked at and practiced. Great passions for things are usually discovered by working at them and not stumbling upon them. That's what I think.

                Well I lost my job over refusing to get vaxxed. And see! I bothered no one, I mind my own business, I always wanted my simple life in my chill job I loved, but society didn't even want me to have that. Now that vax mandates are starting to lift here as they know it was always a load of crap to force it onto healthy people seeing it never slowed spread significantly, I'm not even sure if I can be bothered working anymore. At least not hard as I used to. I will take an opportunity if it came by but I'm not going to strain or jump hurdles for one. I probably would only put basic "quiet quit" effort at my next job as I learnt it doesn't amount to much

                Anyways I spend my mornings exercising (bodyweight/dumbell stuff), get too distracted by music before and after which I think I need to cut out (don't listen to music while working out). Then I just spend my day reading a book or reading about random stuff or spending time here. As strange as it sounds, I'm actually feeling very content and happy.

                I have a garden to grow some vegetables that I tend to. Nothing self sustaining but I do enjoy seeing these things grow. I also enjoy setting up or maintaining worm farms to have my own fertilisers.

                If you don't have any debt and want a simple life, maybe you should try to find work in agriculture.

                I dont think that you're wrong by saying that great passion is something you stumble upon and it never fluctuates. Even having great mechanical skill is just like being a great copycat if you dont have a single original idea or atleast able synthesize them into your own style. Perhaps, I'm so sensitive about not know what would I want to say throughout the writing even though I do not see myself ever being a writer due to before mentioned reason. Ideally, one should feel some gravitation towards writing, then increase skill capacity and more ideas would follow, like catch and toss.

                I'm quite certain that you have some gravitation towards writing since you post on a literature board. In fact, you're writing right now. Anyway, it's not like you have to write. I don't know you and I could be wrong, but the point I'm making here is that all you can do is try. I personally believe that there is a small group of people who find modern life very meaningless and undignified, and I also personally believe that those people are well-suited for pursuits like painting, poetry, fiction, sculpture, and other artistic things very often.
                There's this John Adams quote:
                >"I must study politics and war that my sons may have liberty to study mathematics and philosophy. My sons ought to study mathematics and philosophy, geography, natural history, naval architecture, navigation, commerce and agriculture in order to give their children a right to study painting, poetry, music, architecture, statuary, tapestry, and porcelain."
                Well, if you've got no interest in politics and war nor mathematics and philosophy, geography, history, architecture, or commerce, you may as well give painting, poetry, music, and ceramics a shot and I think enough time has passed between us and John Adams and enough success had that it's legitimate to do so. I could be wrong, but why not try?

                This is rather approaching the realms of psychology because the main reason of not wanting to try completely new things is that I do not to experience the circle of getting my hopes up, then crashing it into the ground and becoming regretful about the whole experience. Basically I just look for a limitations because I'm that afraid of that feeling.

                You don't have to get your hopes up. You only need to do the work. Read Michel Houllebecq's essay To Stay Alive: A Method. It may or may not resonate with you, but what you'll see clearly from that essay is that this excellent poet, storyteller, and essayist does not start from a place of hope, and while I can't say I think that produces the best writing, it does produce writing and really, that's the beauty and uniqueness of art and literature.

                I think the trick is to find something or some things that you intuitively feel are worth it independent of guarantees. I think actually, you'd probably be willing to accept that, in which case, the problem is not really a lack of guarantees but a lack of willingness to try. At some point, you just have to set out to do something.

    How do I talk to my brother about wtf is going on in his household. He was wanting to come to stay with me again, but didn't end up coming. Its something he did for a few months at the start of the year so I think whatever he is dealing with must be getting really bad as I have suspected it for at least maybe 5 or so years, I think having kids really exposed it as I view her as a subpar mother or at least not prioritising things right.

    Im pretty certain his wife has mental health issues (found Seroquel and lamotrigine in his house) and just know there is this insane spending habits out of the blue which is so bizarre. Especially after i helped him with $4k for an operation for his wife. Over the years I've probably helped with nearly $50k over the years and it's frustrating that it doesn't amount to much and he seems to be getting worse. It's like he is getting no support at all from his wife yet she keeps pressuring him and becoming more and more demanding. Yet no matter what big purchase they make or what renovation, it's never enough and she gets bored just as quickly as it's done.

    The scarey part is that I'm seeing similar traits in his daughter. Just the frivolous wants then getting bored in a split second. Eg. When at our mothers place she will ask for some cake then one my mother cuts her a slice she is already distracted by something else and wanting a chocolate bar that I might have just pulled out the pantry. Or she will see a stuff at my parents place and be asking my brother rif she can have a stuffed dog then I hear my bro saying she already has one. Not sure if it's a mental illness manifesting in my niece or if it's just learned bahavior from her mother. Its insanity

        How do I get him to open up properly about it. His life is obviously bothering him and I'm worried she might flip likw the guy I the pic if she really is that insufferable.

        Even on Sunday at our parents (she doesn't even come anymore, just him and the kids) he was complaining about a headache. Then when our mother offered him a tablet he said not him but other people are headaches. Then just let out that "my life isn't how I imagined it to be".

        He is just getting so frustrated and makes me what burdens and expectstions she keeps putting on him when she is a lazy fuck who hasnt worked a day since getting married. And doesnt even out in effort to make proper meals for the family (their pantry is full of just snacks and the kids literally have those liquid breakfast dirnks for breakfast even though the oldest is only 8). Nor does she even prepare the kids educsitonwise or practice reading or teach them basic counting or the alphabet

        She is truly strange. It's like she just likes things on an aesthetic level or superficially but once she gets it, she doesn't give af about it anymore. Like she jsut lieks the idea of her engagement, the wedding, the kids 1st birthday, the trips they go on. But doesn't want to get involved with what marriage and having kids is really about. Even her wedding dress is just hanging in our parents garage despite having asked her to pick it up for a decade. Would've thought all girls kept that shit in their home closet for safe keeping for sentimental reasons. But nope it was literally just discarded in my parents garage for so long even the cover is disintegrating.

    Last night was my first wet dream of No Nut November. In that dream, I stalked a scantily-dressed woman through the woods and raped her. I ripped off what she was wearing, held her down, and forced myself upon her. She moaned in both pleasure and pain. This isn't the first wet dream I've had with themes of rape. In a prior dream, I molested an unconscious woman (once again in the wilderness) and ejaculated as I humped her body. I don't recall ever having a wet dream with a consensual sexual encounter. Strangely enough, I have had dreams with sex but I never ejaculated during them.

    Most nocturnal emissions I have don't come from dreams of sex, rather my body just decides to excavate my balls at a random moment when I'm flaccid and nothing in particular is happening in the dream. It's strange to ejaculate while flaccid. It feels like your body is just pissing a small amount of cum rather than throbbing and squirting it out. When one doesn't ejaculate as frequently as they should, I suppose the body tries its hardest to keep the prostate from getting backed up.

    I have frequent nightmares, especially in the winter months, so I appreciate my mind giving me a pleasant dream. Good dreams rarely seem to find me.

      I know we have a hate boner for China in the West, but this is a good example of the modern Western "man" versus the Chinese man. Xi is to the point in his first sentence, and lays an ultimatum in the second sentence with a classy reminder of the other man's failures to satisfy to that point. Trudeau's reaction, of course, is to not speak to the man directly, but to repeat some squeaky clean line he's rehearsed about "his values", and he doesn't even grant the other man any recognition of his complaint. Xi recognizes this spinelessness and shakes his hand and walks away.

        What I forgot to mention is that Chinese men are generally very good at communicating goals and don't shy from professional criticism. Western structures on the other hand are falling apart because they pussyfoot around everything and never say anything directly (prbly scared of being sued for "workplace harassment" or "causing emotional distress"). I worked for some Chinese guys once and they don't fuck around. Even some local Chinese businesses in my city run their shit like the military, from grocery stores to travel agencies to artisan shops to fucking dim sum houses. They're exceedingly professional and alert, and lay out information very clearly. I've had Chinese business partners straight up tell me I don't seem like I could benefit from them and they'll recommend another firm. They don't do that prolonged fake "let's put a pin in that and open a dialogue for a future relationship" bullshit. They're just like, "Nah, bud, we don't do that here. Best of luck. There's the door." I've had Chinese travel agencies tell me, "No, whoever told you that is crazy. It's never going to be that cheap. Here's our two options so give us a call when you've made up your mind." Cold motherfuckers. Not for everyone, but as someone who grew up with old school business and tradespeople, but unfortunately now live in one of the gayest, fakest cities on Earth, I like it.

          the lab next to me is run by the one Chinese faculty at my uni, and all but one of his grad students are coincidentally Chinese. This lab has had so many safety violations it's been nicknamed the "liveleak lab." They had a 2000 volt hot wire just hanging in their lab for several weeks. They've had to move 1-ton blocks of steel with dubious setups while every single one of them wears fucking crocs and sandals. They tried to take a 2-ton heat sink out of a fume hood with a fucking bike lock chain before we told them straight up "yeah this is sketch we won't help you until you get a real chain," and on top of that they hadn't even cut the (still live) wires going into said heat sink.

          But one thing that I will respect is that they are direct in what they want, and that they are accepting of direct criticism of the bullshit they pull in their lab.

        keep it real, would you let Xi get up in that bussy? See ive been thinking about it right, many a long night and early morning if you catch my drift, wondering why so many discard such a fine hunk of yellow meat. Now I know what you're thinking, small cock, how can he top? Like you said it's not in the physical but how he commands the room. See topping (im using slang so to clarify for my non homoerotic readers what im refering to is anal sex) is all in the control. His admittedly small but firm hands guiding you, his direct booming voice barking out orders. Even now I'm getting cubbed up pondering how he would use that 3 inches of pure authoritarian power to make my little white bussy cream. I've attached a picture ive been using recently, since i know there's no putting into words what those deep black eyes can do to a man. Anyway enjoy the chinese theater just know that he's mine, at least until he's done with me 😉

    I have to confess, I have never read The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, despite seeing a whole host of other media based off of it's premise, and at one point even considering my own Tyler Burden persona to improve my life. Seeing how short it is, I have taken it upon myself to download a PDF and read through it this afternoon, despite my preference for physical books.

        Having just read it as an adult I was still slightly unsettled. Despite the "unexplainable horror" trope description of Mr. Hyde's physique, I think it adds to the story as Mr. Hyde would be able to blend into human society with the exception of his evilness, which exists as an inseparable part of him. It seems like the kind of story that would be more relevant to an adult rather than a child, since adulthood is usually when one is fully socialized and can really contemplate the morality of their actions.

    I don't know what I'm doing with my life. I'm decently intelligent, but I just feel directionless.
    Spent the past 5 years in various shit jobs, while getting a degree in English.
    I'm not sure how to get a good job, as my social skills are shit & I've no experience in anything.
    I have this deep fear that all I'm good for are shit jobs, that I will never attain anything even slightly better.
    Most of the jobs I can see on job boards, don't even offer a wage any higher than a typical food service job ($15/hr).
    I'm only 22 and I already feel so completely burned out.
    The idea of just disconnecting completely, and going off to live in a shack in the middle of nowhere honestly sounds appealing to me, but I know that's not a real option. I've years and years of toil ahead of me, and nowhere near the level of savings to even be able to live on my own in a shack.
    That's what depresses me the most.
    I'm so tired of working.
    I'm disturbed by the realization of how mediocre I am in comparison to my peers. Seems like most of my peers in college spent their time wisely accumulating bullshit to put on their resume, whereas I squandered my time toiling in low wage work & playing videogames. I've formed zero friendships in college and have avoided joining any clubs or anything like that. I'm afraid future employers will realize just how little experience I have in anything.
    It's already been embarrassing when I talk to people my age and always have to lie about myself when they start talking about their high school experiences I have to pretend I can relate. I've never been able to form a relationship with someone. I just can't do it I'm too detached and feel this all encompassing indifference. Like even when I like someone, it's only a vague abstract kind of liking.
    I just don't see a future for myself.
    The honest ideal for me at this point would to be to find some quiet easy library job. I don't even care if it pays well at this point. Just something where I'm not ruining my body slowly.
    I can see the impact of the years of stress on my face already. I've these permanent stress lines on my forehead, eye shadow under my eyes & bags from years of working jobs late at night.
    I quit my job in security the other month. And have spent the past month or so doing nothing. I've one class that I'm finishing up to get my degree. Then after that I don't know what.
    I've a decent amount of savings and investments because I'm so frugal.
    On the other hand I kind of like the idea of finding some sort of dangerous job. Like joining a fishing boat or something. Just to get out and see the world a little more, as I've lived in the same city my entire life. I'm way too sheltered and have seen so little of real life.

      As a freshmen I was never able to connect to people, but I was always so eager to learn, and could easily spend an entire day reading in the library.

            I don't mind doing some minimum amount of socializing though like "party days" or whatever. I'd assume, though, as long as I'm proficient and providing for the team they wouldn't fire me. Or is that not what it's like?

    She opened the beer and took a sip.

    I looked at Clare, lifted my beer and had a hit. She was plenty of woman, a Mae West type, wore the same kind of tight-fitting gown—big hips, big legs. And breasts. Startling breasts.

    Clare crossed her wondrous legs, a bit of skirt falling back. Her legs were full and golden and the stockings fit like skin.

    “I’ve met your mother,” she said.

    I drained my can of beer and put it down by my feet. I opened a new one, took a sip, then looked at her, not knowing whether to took at her breasts or at her legs or into her tired face.

    “I’m sorry that I got your son drunk. But I’ve got to tell you something.”

    She turned her head, lighting a cigarette as she did so, then faced me again.

    “Yes?”

    “Clare, I love you.”

    She didn’t laugh. She just gave me a little smile, the corners of her mouth turning up a little.

    “Poor boy. You’re nothing but a little chicken just out of the egg.”

    It was true but it angered me. Maybe because it was true. The dream and the beer wanted it to be something else. I took another drink and looked at her and said, “Cut the shit. Lift your skirt. Show me some leg. Show me some flank.”

    “You’re just a boy.”

    Then I said it. I don’t know where the words came from, but I said it, “I could tear you in half, baby, if you gave me the chance.”

    “Yeah?”

    “Yeah.”

    “All right. Let’s see.”

    Then she did it. Just like that. She uncrossed her legs and pulled her skirt back.

    She didn’t have on panties.

    I saw her huge white upper flanks, rivers of flesh. There was a large protruding wart on the inside of her left thigh. And there was a jungle of tangled hair between her legs, but it was not bright yellow like the hair on her head, it was brown and shot with grey, old like some sick bush dying, lifeless and sad.

    I stood up.

    “I’ve got to go, Mrs. Hatcher.”

    “Christ, I thought you wanted to party!”

    “Not with your son in the other room, Mrs. Hatcher.”

    “Don’t worry about him, Hank. He’s passed out.”

    “No, Mrs. Hatcher, I’ve really got to go.”

    “All right, get out of here you god-damned little piss-ant!”

    I closed the door behind me and walked down the hall of the apartment building and out into the street.

    To think, somebody had suicided for that.

    The night suddenly looked good. I walked along toward my parents’ house.

          I did this once with mixed results. I began applying for jobs I was unqualified for and drinking before the interviews. Right off the bat, I landed a 6-figure developer job. I was a mess though and the position was short-lived. I was let go three or four months later. To my appeasement, I was awarded a massive amount of unemployment benefits

              When I drink, I can sell a vacuum to a vacuum salesman. The guys that interviewed me were both incompetent and easily wooed. If it hadn't been for a crippling drug addiction, I'm sure I could have kept that job.

                Try practicing. Do research on how to structure your answers and practice them. You can learn how to give a "good" answer and you can practice it aloud. Watch yourself speak in the mirror and you'll become more confident because you know what you're doing. You don't have to HAVE charisma, you just have to BE charismatic for about an hour. Put in the work and it gets easier.

                No, I'm sober now and much better off. My meth and xanax days were short-lived. Eventually, the pain of heartbreak subsided, and I got sober. However, If I was looking for work, I would have a few drinks before the interview, undoubtably with great success. But mostly, it's me that's asking the questions now.

    What a palace of abandonment, a vile den of filth, housing a creature begotten to the world by a thoroughly disappointed mother and growing more ungrateful for it with each miserable day. In every corner of this small abode was a shrine of rubbish built by and for the god Laziness, the creature’s main deity of worship, his only one, the only thing he truly loved. Besides that, only the beginnings of new shrines could be seen on the bed and near the door, to him a total comforting chaos.

    He spent his days in thought as to how he could show even more total devotion to his god, ever enthralled by his promises of moving little and accomplishing less. As he sat in front of his desk, illuminated by the pixels of the overpriced curved monitor, he could hear the god Laziness tear at his clothes in agony as it shouted: No, no please. Anything but another job.

    But the universe is a cruel master and planning your future usually goes as well as planning to piss straight during a stroke.

    He scrolled and scrolled, “Unspecified Caretaker Position (168 hours per week, no breaks)”, “Dung Thrower (20 years of experience required)”, “Senior Financial Data Analyst Manager Internship (Unpaid)”. This could not be, truly, was there nothing simpler? Something that needed no skill, or at least no perceived skill.

    Existence Smith closed his eyes, leaning back in his chair. Yes, what a name his mother had given him, “Existence”. It made him wonder how she had not realised what a clash of cultures it was to have such an unconventional first name right next to the most generic Anglo-Saxon surname the world had known. He would have been bullied for it, he definitely would, but caring is effort and effort is a precious resource for Existence. It can only be depleted when absolutely necessary.

    When the apparent bullies were not given this resource for their efforts back in the High School days, they came away embarrassed, making only clowns of themselves in front of a person who barely acknowledged them.

    This was the bizarre way the world perceived him. People, ever since school, thought he was “cool”. No, he did not try to be. He was only trying to never try, yet somehow in this world ridden with anxiety and a search for purpose (Or a delusion of purpose) he appeared like the ideal many strived for. A search for purpose, what a silly thing, he had always thought. Every purpose for everything you see or hear is created by you; why would life be any different?

    Ultimately, it was about freedom. Existence did not wish to conform to the rules of civilization made mostly by men long dead. No, he wished to live by his rules and reap the rewards of civilization at the same time. He could hear the many men and women shouting in impotent rage “How immoral!” Not to me. “You must respect the past!” The past is dead. “If all men were like you, humanity would be finished!” They will never be like me. Not all of them.

    What do you think about this situation. I'm mid 20s living with my two older sisters. Whenever I go out they ask me where I'm going. If I want to go out at night for a walk or some shit they object, saying it's too dangerous, it's too dark, whatever. When I go out anyway, my mother calls me and starts giving me a long speech. If I'm out at night with friends or anything they (or my mother who lives in other town) start texting me that it's too late and I should return home, blabla. I've told them that I don't understand why they interfere so much with what I do, and the usual answer is that they get worried if I'm out, that as I don't go out with my phone they can't reach, etc, etc.

    Also worth noticing is that this is relatively new, they didn't mess with what I did or didn't years ago, but they have grown more controlling.

    This is all related to night time, it's like they are afraid of it.

    How to approach this, what do you think?

      You are good enough. You’re not ugly, how can you even say that? Maybe you think I “deserve better,” but I don’t want to be with anyone but you. And you don’t deserve worse—you deserve to be happy. I’ve done horrible things too, and made tons of mistakes. You’re not a bad person—even if you’ve done things that you regret, there’s always the opportunity to do things differently now. And you have done good things for other people. In the time that we knew each other, just being able to talk to you was a good thing for me. It helped me so much. I know a lot about you—maybe more than you think—and I’m not disgusted at all.

      Don’t tell yourself it was meant to be this way— you can still change it. It’s not too late. I have all of the same fears and insecurities as you do. We have a lot of the same problems. Communication is hard for me too. I understand how you feel, and you can trust me. Please don’t give up. Don’t you want to at least try? It’s okay if you’re tired—you can rest in my arms. Maybe you’ve made the wrong choices, but the future can still be changed. It’s not too late to make a different choice now.

      You do deserve help. And helping you would never burden me— I want to do it. You don’t know how much I want to help you, in any way that you need. It’ll be okay, we can figure it out together. I know that you’re scared—so am I. I’ve spent my whole life pushing everyone away. I’m lonely too. I never let anyone get close to me either. But I’m willing to risk it for you. You are enough for me, I promise. You’re the only one that I want. I don’t think that I’ll ever get over you. Please don’t break my heart.

      This probably isn’t even who I think it is, and I’m most likely making an utter fool of myself yet again. But I’m willing to risk the embarrassment if there’s even the smallest chance that I’m right.

    It's ironic how there are plenty of people who seem perfectly capable, and have accomplished more than I have, yet they think lowly of themselves.
    On the other hand, I am objectively quite mediocre. The only thing I excel at is doing my homework, reading books, and playing video games. I have never had a sexual partner, and may as well consider myself as having no friends at this point. I'm quite the misanthrope Yet there's some unshakable sentiment within me that makes me feel genuinely better than other people, and like I'm destined for greatness. Similar to Raskolnikov, but for me it's less of an aspiration and more as if I'm just fated to be special in some way. From a rational standpoint, I know this feeling is objectively wrong - so far, in my life, I have only been on the lower end of the totem pole. This delusion won't go away, however. Is this schizophrenia? Is this mania? Or am I just very devoted to lying to myself? I can objectively tell it's wrong, but my guts, my instincts, tell me otherwise.

    I hope all the anons in this thread find their true worth. If you have had a real job, a romantic/sexual partner, have completed secondary education, or have a passion you love to pursue, then you are indisputably more successful than I am, despite my delusions of grandeur.

      Worldly success is relative. All men die.
      However, I was just reading a novel that included a character with a sort of "delusion" of grandeur. I think it has common themes with other archetypes, especially real-world examples. It is possible for anyone to "become a great figure" as long as they are at least of average and patient. I don't mean famous, certainly infamous. A normal person would never do this willingly. This is because normal person has social and societal connections that make them feel guilty to do whatever they believe is right if it would mean breaking those connections.
      I wouldn't doubt that you lack those connections, and because you may have identified some great problem with the world, there is a small sort of voice telling you, "You know you can do something grand. You know it's possible."
      But fear and apprehension take hold of you. It's not a delusion of grandeur, it's your inner mind realizing that you have little or nothing to lose besides your life and future.

Don't lose heart and try your best to enjoy every day of it. I can't tell you how but find something you absolutelt love and will make you money and stick woth it to the end. Also, get a hobby and make friends in the anime club. They accept everyone.

        There have been many deciding factors. The final catalyst this asinine-in-hindsight "me or them" situation with my friends that escalated to attempts at humiliating me through the shitflinging, with her rhetoric boiling down to "if you're not with me on this then you perceive me as worthless". I was backed into a corner and felt very confused as for what to do, so I decided to end the relationship at that point (although I do think she was willfully trying to push me to that point by starting the mess). I thought well and hard, and I didn't see any other way out. Figured she would eventually be better off without me since my presence was causing her so much stress. Plus it set a bad precedent that would have probably lead to bigger problems in the long run. Let's not kid ourselves I just chickened out from the responsibilities lel.
        Yeah that's what it was, I yielded to the game of probabilities. I was unable to drag her out of the self hatred/low self esteem gutter. All she wanted was to cuddle, and I couldn't visit her because of the long distance and the circumstances surrounding our social status. I didn't make her understand how good she was. I didn't help her realize that she was better than me all along. Just sort of left her in the cold, dark corners of her room. I sincerely hope she's doing good.

          I too felt great sadness once over this, and I sincerely hope she found someone that could bring the greatest good out of her. When I loved her the most she became the most stressed, I had to end it since she didn't have the strength.

          It is hard to say if this is chickening out of responsibilities or the adult thing to do. I think I was genuinely suffocating her.

    How do you know if you're in an abusive relationship? Im noticing and am self aware about some "things" she does but at the same time it kind of turns me on, yet feels a bit messed up at the same time

      There are checklists you can look up. I can tell you too, if you elaborate.

    Popeyes fried chicken might unironically be my favorite food. It's just too good.

      there was an anon here the other day that accused me of conflating the synthetic / analytic with the a priori / a posteriori, he / she / it was exceptionally rude, and wrong, but i must admit, they have also helped me, as after reading their comments i did feel cause to re-familiarise myself with the distinction, and having done so i feel better equipped for it. Thank you anon, i look forward to our next encounter.

    Yeah, hello? Hi, yeah, I'm anon and I'm calling to enquire about certain policies. Yeah, so I was told that all these hardships would eventually pay off. I think your sales rep used the term "silver lining." Yeah, yeah, so that silver lining has yet to show up and the hard times havent abated. I think I'm investing a lot morr than I'm getting back. Am I waitlisted or something? Is there, like, a premium membership I can buy? No? Well can you give me an approximate timeline regarding my waitlist status? Hello? Hello? Are you still there?

      Life isn't fair and there's nothing I can do but seethe about it. Men like us suffer through toils and hardships only for others to live lives full of joy without a care in the world.

    what the hell is going on in the next thread?

    I self-publish erotica, and I know I will die in poverty. My writings might gain their value after I am gone. I made my peace with that fact. sometimes my depression and procrastination take over and I don't want to write.

    sometimes my tinder dates will show interest in my writing. That's all I have to show for, really. I am not social, and can hardly hold a conversation IRL, but I can write. it is usually the new-wave feminists with dyed hair. the bookworms who love romance. and my shame prevents me from sharing my stories. What if they hate it so much that they get a restraining order? That's also the reason why I don't share my writings with friends. To them, I just write and dance around the topic.

    then I will say wth, and send the first chapter to my dates. They love it, and I don't know how to take compliments. They say it makes them horny, and want to read more. that gives me hope. maybe one day I will get out of my slump and actually send it to a real publisher.

    I am not afraid of simple rejections. I am more so afraid of getting rejection letters similar to that one anon who wrote the most racist cuck shit ever. What if my writings are the same and my tinder matches just lie to charm me...

    A vile temptress tricked me personally into failing NNN. Perhaps an exception can be made? I didn't explicitly intend to masturbate.
