This doesn't evoke any emotion when I read it. Is this because the writer is bad or is it because I didn't put enough effort into feeling it?

That picture reminds me of of the instructions my professors used to tell their students. I think they were tired of students using advanced words when simpler ones would've been enough.


What kind of school did you go to? My English teachers always told the class to exchange simple words for "better" (i.e. more obscure, not more descriptive) ones, and also to put in lots of adverbs. They had posters of fancy words (ironically titled "Wow Words") in all the classrooms (They also didn't like me using parentheses very much).


University. Philosophy and history professors. The idea was that it would be easier for people to understand you if you used more more common words, and many students didn't seem to understand the words they used that well either.


Writing in a manner to make your work accessible isn't really what the thread is about though. It's to mess about and have fun with words isn't it?


Read "A Case for Small Words" by Richard Lederer, you might reconsider your stance.

This thread isn't meant to be all about me, even if my writing makes it seem like it, it can be anything to do with friends.

Do you have any online friends sushi? How did you get them? What do you like to do with them?

I have a problem making online friends, because all the sites I go on are sushi rollymous. I have tried a few forums, but I can never commit to them, and they're usually pretty bad anyway. I dont have time for IRC, and I always make a big old booby of myself in live conversation. Do you think it's possible for me to make online friends, or should I stick to being by myself for the moment?

Never made online friends because I simply don't have the energy to maintain them. I constantly read online about people complaining about ghosting and that kind of stuff and I wouldn't want to hurt anyone, because my time in my computer is mostly spent either posting on sushi rollymous websites or consuming japanese media.


I ghosted my real life friends and then they never attempted to contact me again

guess they weren't my real friends

ghosting is a test of true friendship – if they don't attempt to get back in touch with you, you weren't really friends to begin with



that's not how it works kid


>don't have the energy to maintain them
Same here. Out of sight, out of mind. Relationships today are incredibly demanding. Instant messaging and effortless social exchange let people expect at least weekly updates. otherwise you degrade from "close friend" to "just another acquaintance".

I wish I would care enough to prevent myself from acting like that instead of occasionally regretting and forgetting about it.

For example once I don't enjoy an online game anymore, because it becomes too tedious or difficult, I usually just stop playing regardless of contacts and clan memberships. When I'm already unproductive, it should at least be an enjoyable waste of time.


This sums up the dilemma pretty well. Plenty of friends have complained to me that they have trouble keeping in touch with everyone, especially when they also have to juggle that with irregular work schedules.

This might be why your friends haven't contacted you. I've sometimes gone for months without seeing someone because I was too scared to take initiative, only for them to apologize later that they didn't get back in touch sooner.

I plan to recover from the life sapping semester I just trudged through. Heading back home for the Winter, so I'm going to play a lot of video games, watch some comfy anime and relax. Just, get away from the world for a few weeks.


>rewatch the Disappearence
I'm gonna do the same, for me its basically a tradition at this point.

I finally got a good job so I'm going to get nice things for my family, they deserve it. I'm hoping I'll be able to have some tranquillity and maybe get a bit further into persona 5.

>for me its basically a tradition at this point.
It is for an awful lot of people that ever went on /a/ for more than a couple years.


I'm in the same boat lol

A friend from abroad is coming over, so I'll be catching up with her for a bit. Shortly after that is my birthday, then two Christmas dinners with family and friends.

I'll need a time out after all that socializing, so I'll probably watch the fireworks alone from my comfy view while sipping champagne and listening to shoegaze, Lost in Translation style.

Let's tell each other about strangers doing things that made you feel comfy.

Recently I went to the laundry room to clean some clothes. I like to hang around in the laundry room and play video games and keep an eye on my clothes because I don't trust people not to take them out of the machine.
Sitting at the table was a man wearing a US Marines (or some other military) cap, I guess he was a veteran but I didn't ask. He had a creaky old laptop on the table and was playing a Christmas themed hidden objects game.

Pic unrelated.

That reminds me I gotta download Jazz Jackrabbit Holiday Hare for my yearly playthrough.


I'm sorting out my drives right now actually, I always find that comfy. Finding old files you've forgotten about, rechecking everything you found worthwile enough to save. Goal is to only have the bare essentials left and everything important made sure it's backed up before the new years.
Looking forwards to that feel of a cleaned out system without duplicate folders and all that.
Maybe he was a LGR fan, his last vid was one something like that.


>strangers doing things that made you feel comfy


Seeing that video is actually what reminded me of it happening and prompted me to post this thread ha, but no it was a couple of weeks ago.

Gonna be worse, with climate change, resource wars, and cultural decay.

I have mixed feelings about that, technology and health care is cool and all that but we are becoming more and more controlled.


Every age has good and bad, the problem we have now is that the good in the world is really good and the bad is really bad. Medical technology is amazing, but nuclear warfare is terrifying. So you have to take the good with the bad, the only other option is suicide. Unless you're a time traveler, in which case, you can take whatever good with whatever bad you want.


I don't have health insurance so I can't actually afford healthcare despite needing it really badly

Yesterday was my birthday and girl I wanted to ask to prom texted me that she will show up at my school.
Fortunate event. Got haircut and shaved myself, think I am good looking when I am fresh - you guys
even complimented me on face thread. I met her, few words exchanged and I asked her on spot. She said
no, because she had exams on her university, but I felt like she was going to say yes at first. Mind you, this was
the prettiest girl I know and I felt really confident talking so casually to her, knowing that everyone
was prolly looking at us. Later I heard that few guys had same problem, their girls just had to study for colloquiums.

Regardless, I felt really confident after that talk. I just wish I could have been always like that.

Don't know if this kind of topic belongs here. But does anyone else feel utterly repulsed by social media and the climate of virtual interactions especially on platforms where sushi rollymity is an option. Though whether or not sushi rollymous is turned on doesn't make much of a difference in the poor quality content produced. It's an endless repetition of temporary pointless trends and people bandwagoning another's point of view instead of establishing their own. I'm dead tired of the fanatic obsession focused on sex and politics over and over. I don't fucking care. I feel immobilized and unable to interact with most people my age, I don't see the purpose anymore of trying to be social especially in this unfiltered cesspool of vapid thoughts. I gave up on imageboards, lasted a streak reaching a full year. Came back occasionally to small boards to see what's up but I can see the toxicity slowly leaking in.

Digital Ocean tried to do that with me a logn time ago. Disabled my account and asked me to upload a picture of my passport. I never did, but rather contacted their support. They re-enabled my account again without me ever having to give them sensitive information.

This is funny and sad how some people willfully share their ids and pictures and whatever private information someone on the web asked for. Whai. I ditched twitter when it asked me for my phone number, the hell I'd upload my id somewhere.


I've lost track of all the accounts that I can't recover because they demand a phone number.


Things like this will generally let you access your account again if you bother the support email about it and reply back to automated responses.


Meanwhile I give google 2 numbers and instead of using them to send me a confirmation code, they ask for them both and still want to know when I created the account. Hell if I know. I've been waiting a week for someone to personally review my request for recovery.

In retrospect, I think it was actually harmful for me to get my sister into PC gaming, and she got really into it whereas I just kind of gave up on that entirely to focus on more important things. It enabled her to have a more lethargic lifestyle. Smoking weed and drinking and playing video games while only working dead-end jobs minimally. One time, she even spilled booze on the front of her computer and the front panel's USB ports stopped working. It's a miracle she didn't destroy the whole PC though.

My sister did live with this group for a while, but she was no longer in charge. But then she started dating someone and let him stay in her room. I'm not entirely sure how they met, but it might have been online, possibly through gaming, considering that he lived quite a distance away, so it's not like they met in high school or at a local bar or something. One of the other roommates, an older guy in his late 30s or maybe 40s, got upset, because I don't think my sister's boyfriend was paying rent. They had some sort of altercations. This older dude was quite a character. I'm not sure how he got into this group, considering the age difference. You'd think someone that old would have their shit together by then and wouldn't need to share rent with tons of people, but oh well. My sister said he did a lot of acid, and that he was kind of crazy. He also did a lot of weird psychedelic paintings.

My sister gave a very one-sided explanation of the story, but apparently they were sending each other passive-aggressive post-it notes, instead of acting like adults and resolving the conflict in a mature way. She said he felt threatened by her, and he also didn't like her guests who were coming over frequently and staying the night or living there without paying rent. So the entire group decided to kick my sister out. I think she might have actually been at fault, but she acted like the other guy was at fault and then everyone took his side based on false information or something. She felt singled out and that she was kicked out unfairly. But after moving out, she and that group got on better terms again.

I got invited to occasional gatherings there, and I eventually met this guy who moved in at some point. He was another older guy, maybe early 40s, who needed carpooling because he lost his license due to a DUI or something. HPost too long. Click here to view the full text.


Last post:

I guess I wasn't really going anywhere with that story. It's not like a novel that has a conclusion or whatever. It was just a bunch of nerdy/geeky people who decided to live together and they had some bumps along the way. I heard that the couple live somewhere else now, and I've moved far away, and I never lived in that shared housing situation to begin with (I think they called it the "batcave" or something at some point, I vaguely remember because of the wifi name and password). I've had a lot of roommates after moving out of my parents' house, but they had next to nothing in common with these people. I'd take boring but high-functioning roommates over these kinds of people any day of the week. Roommates don't have to be your friends, they just have to be good roommates. Friendship includes boundaries, like not living with them, and those boundaries are part of why you can tolerate your friends.

To people who haven't experienced that stuff, it might seem cool. But I thought it was pretty grating. Lots of people smoking weed and playing N64 Mario Kart together? Sounds cool, right? But it also meant the house would reek of weed, I'd get hotboxed and feel anxious from being too high, etc. I'd also constantly worry about police when I was hanging out with these people, because of all the drugs and whatnot. I also didn't like the weird "we're nerds so we're clearly smart and better than other people" attitude that often plagues these kinds of people.

But the point I'm trying to make is that I don't think nerdy or introverted people are good for each other. People who spend too much time getting drunk and high and spending a lot of time on their computer… these kinds of people are better off interacting with more extroverted people. Your friends and roommates shouldn't just be a carbon copy of you. Find people who are different. That being said, these people were, on the whole, more outgoing and social than the people OP described, but it was still pretty dysfunctional.


Oh yeah, and one last thing (if it wasn't obvious from the other posts): pretty much all of these people were poor. Most didn't have degrees, or I know one person there had a degree from community college, but they still worked at a restaurant. Lots of shitty/dead-end/low pay jobs.

I think that might have driven these people to get more into their hobbies: when you're broke, you don't want to think about college, promotions, professional networking, and career stuff. You just want to finish your shift and then do something fun, like escapist stuff such as getting high or playing a game to forget about your troubles and situation.

I used to be more into escapist stuff like anime and video games and weed, but I've kind of forced myself to be less into it now. The people who put all their free time into just enjoying themselves don't really have any upward mobility. I'm concentrating on my education and career goals now, but I bet a lot of these people are still poor and have no opportunities for career advancements.



I thought of that when the topic came up. Fredrik knudsen did a good video on that for down the rabbit hole if anyone is into that stuff.
