  • I keep having to use the toilet and it’s past midnight. This is partly why I am sleep deprived.

    If you had an Xbox, we could both stop fighting the insomnia and play some Halo together. Terrible idea, I know.

    If this is frequent, maybe see your doctor?

    @Markness
    Have you ever been thoroughly descriptive about this with your doctor?

    Or do you prefer to suffer in semi-silence?
    Do I need to become a “bad boy” if I want a girlfriend?

    @VictorR No, I don’t want that for anyone. This is just what I’ve seen happen since my teens and it’s both confused as well as saddened me.

    I would be a good father to my daughters if I ever sire any. It makes me sad that I haven’t.

    @Rodafina It is exactly disheartening and unpleasant. I don’t know why my parents thought it was a good idea to move to it. My mother gave up the hippy lifestyle in Austin and she’s admitted to me she regrets it sometimes.

    Most Guys I see that have a lot of success with the ladies are just handsome, masculine, tall etc. If you are all of those and consequently high in social status you tend to get away with more aggressive behaviour.
    I had to get food and tea for my mother. The wait at the drive up was very long and my eyes became watery.

    She feels too ill to cook currently.

    Do you know how to cook? My father, for all his weirdness, insisted us boys learn to cook, clean, and touch-type so we would be able to take care of ourselves.

    I know how to cook.
    I think I missed out on a social opportunity a moment ago. :(

    @Gerontius I’ve asked female friends if they know any single women. The answer is always “No.” :(

    @Gerontius is correct: you went to Ikkicon and there you were social.=) You’ve gained a lot from that event and it was only a few days ago. Being too hard on yourself. More social opportunities will come and you will be able to make connections. Just like you did at con.=)
    Gerontius
    Gerontius
    But hey, YOU ASKED! That's a good thing. Try phrasing it as "do you have any ideas for me" or something. That will broaden the scope to include, not just single women (might or might not be any) but will include good places to meet them, fun activities where you might find someone-- Who knows?
    Somehow Petey and Morrigan got shut up in a closet upstairs.

    Oops! Naughty kitties. I wonder if they were playing with the door & managed to close it on themselves. Cats are something else--Hint hint, going into some threads on here with cat pictures is always welcome- ;)

    Maybe they were hatching secret plans for feline mischief.

    My cats get in everywhere even if I dont really realize where they are at the time. I’ve had one get into the bathroom because he likes to go underneath the cupboard. I’ve had one go into the rabbit’s house and has sat with them. They get everywhere they should go and should not go.
    You mentioned going for allergy testing a while back.
    Was that done by a blood draw?
    By poking your skin to see which materials brought a reaction?
    Or what?

    Did you ever get the results back?

    It doesn't sound as if you had many major reactions to anything.

    I’ll have to look at my MyChart.

    If you'll have to look it really sounds like they didn't find much of anything.
    If there had been severe reactions to stuff, seems like somebody would have
    notified you.
    I keep thinking about the clashes I’ve had with other users here, especially over my struggles with wanting a girlfriend. I wish love would finally come into my life so this year won’t be a repeat of the previous one.

    Something I and others have said before is that you gotta stop telling yourself this stuff over and over. Embracing these bad thoughts is one thing, but... wouldnt it be better if they didnt exist in the first place? Hard to embrace something when it's not there. And they dont have to be there, but you keep making more of them...

    I have intrusive, violent and recurring thoughts, but I had to learn to focus on the present.

    The past can be troubling and thoughts of the future can be troubling too, but keep your mind in this moment if you can…
    Rodafina
    Rodafina
    Are you typing? Are you learning something interesting? Are you calmly breathing? You can be safe in this moment without any interference of the past or the future. Focus on the activity you are doing to keep a wandering mind from causing trouble.

    That’s what helps me.
    Bands I hope I will see perform in my lifetime: Public Image Ltd., Killing Joke, Overkill, PIG, Underworld, Godflesh, Meat Beat Manifesto, Orbital, Monster Magnet, Crowbar, and Tomahawk.
    Bands I wish I got to see perform live but never will now: Motörhead, Black Flag with Henry Rollins, Sonic Youth, Dio, Neurosis (Technically they haven’t disbanded but with Scott Kelly getting kicked out of their ranks, the future looks grim.), Gwar with Oderus Urungus, Soundgarden, Type O Negative, Fear Factory with their classic lineup, and Fantômas seems unlikely to tour again.

    I nearly saw Celtic Frost during their unfortunately very brief reunion period in the late 2000s, but some issues made it so I never got past the door. They split a few years later, and with Martin Eric Ain dead I'll never see them live.
    I feel like a loser again. :(

    Don't let others say that to you. All my friends and teachers think I can do it.

    You're tired after that--I hope you rest up a little bit. Everyone on here is stoked that you had an awesome trip; you reconnected with your friend--now let's keep the momentum up. Proud of you, Markness. You're doing great. This is the real you.
    Just learned that my mother had to go to the ER while I’ve been away.

    Have you ever been away from home overnight before this convention?

    @tree I have. Never outside Texas, though. I wish I could travel outside the state but I can’t for many reasons.

    I was thinking it was a coincidence that she went to ER while you were
    away.

    How does the driver see out of that windshield? Lol

    Markness
    @Luca They would strain their neck driving with that thing.

    The art is based off a scene in the manga where the devil girl hits her friend and a random person with a car. She attempts to shift the blame on the human girl because the car actually belongs to her.

    The con is still fun but I am also feeling some burnout.

    I agree. When I went to the Church Christmas party it was crowded and loud. I liked it but I was socially and physically drained after. I fell asleep right away.

    Being away at events for the weekend drains me too. Make sure you get some time to yourself and plenty of sleep.
    I re-connected with my friend that I made last year’s Ikkicon!

    I am sure Markness knows what to do. He came with his friends, so that's important.

    @tree I remembered to bring the CPAP along.
    Gerontius
    Gerontius
    So you're out there, not only did you remember your CPAP machine, but you've also got your friends along? Fantastic. This is an awesome trip. I'm glad you're out having a good time! You'll have to tell everyone about it -- This has been awesome to watch.

    Most cosplayers also use social media like instagram, so ask them for their tags too.=) If you take photos of them, its easier to ask them for their social media tags so you can load up the photos, tag them and say that it was a good time and you met lots of wonderful cosplayers etc. =D

    I wish I could help a friend but I can’t due to being blocked from the place it’s happening at. :(

    So Wrong Planet? I hate that site too, if that's the one you're talking about. I used to be on there & to be honest it was a bit ridiculous.
    Markness

    I am indeed talking about that site. I wish it was purged from the web.

    Sorry Markess, they are missing out on the new you!
    Did the pandemic cut off any chance for me to ever be in a romantic relationship?
    Gerontius
    Gerontius
    No, but I'd wager if anything cuts off your chances, it's being publicly sad and desperate. We have to...no, you have to get the lies you're telling yourself, out of your head.
    Gerontius
    Gerontius
    I think you're quite interesting, and I see no reason someone wouldn't like you, but try improving your odds by presenting a more confident version of yourself and trying to go meet people. Bet it'll help
