How are you this evening? How's your week? How are you ending it (the week, I mean)?

Are you also stuck in life? Do you feel like you're not moving forward, even tho (if maybe) you got it going good? How do you plan on dealing with it?

All in all I have a good life, but I am not happy and I feel as tho everybody else is moving forward while I am stuck doing nothing. I plan on changing that. Question is - where to start?

Have a nice evening and SLAYER

This evening, I'm average. My week has been less than wonderful. My life could be quite a lot worse, though it could also be quite a lot more interesting. I fixate on small issues and use them as an excuse to wallow. At least I'm not fat, yet. Nah I'm not happy, but I'm not dead as far as I know. I'm increasingly reclusive and generally hate everything. No, really, everything. I feel pretty empty, to be honest. I don't know how to end this daily drudgery.

I'm checking Fist of the North Star for the first time, it's pretty much WATA + AHH TA TA TA TA TA TA / 10. I think I'm more of a Legend of Galactic Heroes kind of dude though. That was a good journey.

And yeah I'm pretty much stuck too, don't want to give away too much but I'm pretty much in a situation where change for the better is pretty much incompatible. Couldn't even kill myself even if I wanted to because of it. I could try to have a better career but nothing outside of work would change.

I'm trying to change the small parts I rule over into something more valuable, find my way back to doing things instead of killing time, but leftover routines and behaviours from years of depression run deep. But I guess only giving up makes it certain that I won't make it.

I never understood the concept of 'having a nice day" or "having a nice week" or "how was your day"

Who keeps tally of such things or thinks in those terms? Am I alone in this? Whenever someone sincerely asks "wow was your day" it causes me to think about it for the first time. I simply don't understand it

Don't you think it's far stranger that you have to stop and actively search your self to figure out how you're doing? They're asking, "how are you doing?" You can be like, "Oh, crappy. I woke up late and then spilled my coffee all over myself on the way to work."

I think you should ruminate on the nature of social interaction if you're puzzled by some of the most basic of human interactions. I'm not trying to talk shit, I mean I do understand your angle, but I don't think it's nearly as much of a thing as you think it is. Just saying. Sorry if I caused any ruffles.

>Don't you think it's far stranger that you have to stop and actively search your self to figure out how you're doing?

Not really, but I think this sentence got to the heart of the matter. I would have to pause and think about the minor details of the day in order to make an assessment and serve it out to someone asknig. They wouldn't hold a place in my mind enough that I could easily recall them in the moment.

Please, ruffle me, I think that kind of small talk is a sign of stupidity.

maaan, I love tech talk. Sometimes I like to read complex tech manuals or detailed papers on the history of TCP/IP for example just because I love the sense of looking into an enormous world that I know next to nothing about. It's refreshing and comforting.
I'd love to have someone in bed talk to me and make me understand complex systems.

some stories from BellLabs, DEC, or early systems admin stories make me tear up a bit

like Ken Thompson signing each physical copy of source code he sent to universities "Love, Ken", or when Tom Limoncelli bamboozled the Warranty Lead at Sun Microsystems to keep his office at Bell Labs for free tech support

behind every cool system there's usually a very human project management story that is very fun

you also get horror stories like the one time Emory Universities drive wiped everyone in their active directory by pushing an image of Win7, including the SCCM server, which reformated itself, leaving thousands of computers unbootable

or how the Google internal name for a crack team of 5 sysadmins who retiring old hardware as a "death squad", who literally visit systems owners to tell them to reimplement their shit onto newer hardware

really decarboxylates my trichomes

hey OP, ill teach you where to start, please hear me out and i would appreciate a response

Recently i have realised that I am addicted to everything I do,

I browse facebook, instagram and this chan, thats where i get my social fix
but really its making me miserable because its not progressing my life at all

next i smoke, which makes sitting around doing nothing exciting enough to keep doing it day after day, again, my life is not progressing.

NOW, here is my theory,
i quit sugar and found it to be a massive thing, it was like, i didnt know how much i was using sugar to make up for my shitty life.
then i quit carbs,
and thats when i realised that carbs are the gateway drug!

get in a van, drive away from your wifi and your phone,
wake up, meditate, do nothing that your brain tells you to do, until doing productive things sound amazing and exciting.

these things that seem boring to us,
like plain ol hemp protein shake for instance, will seem amazing once your tolerance to dopamine is lowered, and then you can start doing productive things and ENJOYING THEM

we are all just too dam high! on tv, on processed foods, we are dying from dopamine overdose! slowly wittling away to nothing but an online presence.
its soul destroying but we can break out

eat nothing but meat this week and see how your mind is blown when steaks start tasting like fuckin ice cream.
seriously dude, start with dropping all carbs, it will change your life

The past few weeks have been the same for me actually. I broke up with my ex last december and she's already moved to a different country and got a new rich man. Really I'm happy for her since our thing wasn't going to work and I still want her to be well but at the same time it contrasts into my life really roughly, since I don't even know what I want with my life yet. At first I was like this is completely normal for my situation and thought that I'll know in time. But after a while this still bothers me, because I know I want something with my life. So what I've been thinking is that maybe I've been relying too much on things working out by themself. Waiting for things to fall in perfect line is an endless wait since you never know anything for sure. I think that I need to learn to take a more explorer kinda mindset into life in order to find out more. Things aren't supposed to be easy all the time. That's what makes it exiting.

Man, I've been having dreams lately about being a dad. I'm in my mid-20s and more or less decided in my teens that I would never have children because they're a bummer.

But a few weeks ago my friend found out she was pregnant (and promptly miscarried last week) but that shit did something to my head cuz I've just been having these recurring dreams about having a kid and having to take care of them.

My biological clock is internally screaming and manifesting as these dreams. Shit is weird.

I'm in no position to have kids, but ya know I guess I'm not as opposed to it today as I was 5 years ago. But one important detail: I'd only want a daughter. If it was a son, the mother would be taking a visit to the abortion clinic pronto.
