  • If you're sleeping & dream about a clock--that's probably not Greenwich standard time you're seeing. You will be late!

    Woke up at 4:30, then fell asleep. Woke up again at 7:00, figured well, I can close my eyes a bit, and fell asleep at 7:30. Next thing I know I was up & around & the clock read 7:30--realized I was dreaming because it was already 7:30 and I know that clock keeps time.

    I'm 8 hours behind so if it's GST we have a problem! :)
    I'm maybe not doing great but I think I might have saved my relationship with a nice young lady so that's positive.

    Saved?
    For a while it seemed to be slipping away?
    But ok enough now...

    Well, I had 3 days of depression hit and had got to that point where I could have started pushing my friends away.
    Somehow things worked a lot better. We opened lines of communication and I was able to start working with clearing my head again.
    This put me in good condition to be receptive to her interest. Depression renders me incapable of keeping up in that regard.
    Found a free typewriter today in the scrap pile--and it prints in cursive!

    @All-Rounder well, I really don't necessarily want people to know much about me anyway. I like anonymity & yeah that's basically it.
    Typewriter still doesn't work; I have a lot of disassembling & un-jamming to do. It might not run any time soon. Hey, it may never run.

    Good luck with the hard work, hope it ends up functional. Sounds like a fun machine.

    Hey, curiosity killed the cat, but in such a case that cat could be the other person, heh. That's why I don't like to ask specifics.
    This has been the first year in years where I do not think about shooting myself. It's consistent.

    I agree. We all appreciate your input here at this forum. These last couple of years have been a tough ride.

    Glad you haven’t done it. Seriously. Glad we met.

    I actually think way less people know what their dreams are than it seems. All the people I met in college who didn’t know what to do with their life…and even the ones who have some sort of an idea change it in school or amidst their career. Me being one, I guess.

    My suggestion that might not really work? Keep looking and trying new things.

    Well, it's just a lot of getting used to, actually enjoying the everyday experience of A Good Day. That wasn't happening, for awhile. It was all better describable as anhedonia. Now that I've been less depressed since January--as in, no more depression whatsoever--I have to say that I am a lot happier, but I have to figure out how to make plans and keep on moving. So far so good! but it's still a wild trip.
    Sometimes I kind of wish I had gotten into building model railroads. Those always seemed cool.

    I used to do that when I was younger but trains (real or miniature) take up a lot of real estate. So I think if I do this, I should probably start scratchbuilding instead of collecting ready-to-run kits.

    I like crafts and building things in general.
    We were both Catholics, both more left-wing, both ASD-1 type autistic, and both English majors and literature nerds--anyway we're three dates into this as of last week-end and she and I are showing no signs of slowing down.
    The forum could stand to have a functional block button. Unfollow doesn't help with privacy.

    I don't mean that. I mean to keep people I distrust from seeing anything I post, hence what I said about privacy.

    I think if this forum had that capability, the forum pages would look like Swiss cheese. Holes everywhere.

    That would actually be ok, in my opinion. I had the good fortune to irritate one of them this morning, so hurrah for not having to deal with the Creep
    I'm happy. Life is good. It could be better, but it's good, so I like that.

    Not really anything to say here, other than I think everything is going all right. I don't have as much to say as I did, because I don't want to bother anyone & I also want some privacy. But it's going OK and I think I'll graduate college soon.
    We are having mad-dogs-and-Englishmen weather here. My apologies to Noel Coward. It's too damn hot at midday!
