But I don't know what I'm doing anymore. I'm just flailing around at this point trying to survive. I want to do stuff but I can't even bring myself to start. What do I do?

>I don't even know what I want
Then start by figuring that out. What kind of thing have you got a lot of enjoyment from doing? Drawing? Programming? Playing music? If you cant think of anything, what have you daydreamed about doing in the past? Exploring? Making films? It doesn't matter if it seems totally unattainable at the moment, just think of something.

>I want to do stuff but I can't even bring myself to start

The first step is to just put yourself in front of the thing you want to do. If you want to draw, crawl out of bed, get a pencil and put yourself in front of some paper. It sounds obvious, but if you don't start like this then you will spend all your time thinking about doing stuff instead of doing it.

For general methods of feeling better:
- Do some light exercise everyday. You could try one of the more meditative martial arts like tai chi.
- Listen to some nice music that doesn't perpetuate your gloom.
- Grow plants in your room. There are lots of plants that are good for increasing air quality, plus aromatic plants that can reduce depression (just do your research to make sure the plant/s you use are helpful, as some plants will reduce air quality). A side effect of this is it will mean you have to let sun light into the room, which is also good for mental health.
- Take walks. I think it's best to do this either very early or very late in the day, preferably in the rain, as this means that there will be less people and a nicer atmosphere.

I'm done trying to fit in.
I'm done trying to get along with people.
Social chameleons foster lukewarm friendships, lukewarm passions, and lukewarm loves. They live like a microwave dinner that's a little cold in the center but you eat it anyways because you've started eating already and don't want to go through the effort of putting it back in and waiting more.

Why are people who use imageboards sad all the time? Is it because they don't socialize? Or are the imageboards the cause? Or is it just that everyone's unhappy and they only want to admit it when they're sushi rollymous?


File: 1534418303034.jpg (146.99 KB, 636x900, 52348198_p0.jpg)

I think it is common for people that spend a lot of time on the internet and with technology to be sad, or at least somewhat sensitive. So the same is true for imageboards too. It seems no matter which community I join on the internet, there are a lot of sad people.

Ofc, it is much easier to admit to being sad once you're sushi rollymous. Going on facebook and twitter about such things is harder since all your friends and family will be watching.

Post your beliefs, outwards rather than personally.

> it is possible for people as a whole to be better than they are


Every tenth person will gladly backstab you and yours. The rest are nice, probably, but you can't tell nearly as easily as you think. Never leave yourself exposed.

Hormone Replacement Therapy? If so, congrats, sushi!! Not in that position at all, but it's nice to hear you and a lot of other sushis are making great strides in life.

As for me? I'm finally not scared to drive, now I need to get a car that doesn't fail.


Nice! It legit made my life so much better. Super happy for you.

I'm heading off to university in a city I love! Equal parts nervous and ecstatic. My life is headed in the direction I want right now and that's an amazing feeling.

Off work for two days!! I'm pretty comfy now that I've showered and have my dinner almost done, sloppy joes and french fries, delicious. Then after some relaxing videos or maybe some anime, self foot rub and sleep! Max comfy.

I had eaten a good slice from a "flan of chocolate" like this one in the picture.
Also, I had found some good albums of doujin music.

Hello everysushi. How are you?
I am learning web development by myself and I've always found the concept of imageboard appealing, so I tried creating one, using the TinyIB engine. Here it is https://tinachan.club/
I'd really like some suggestions and advices on how to improve and make it a better place!
I'd like to keep it comfy-oriented, where people can be nice to each other.
Thanks Sushis <3


A few things to note:
1- One board at this current state is not a bad thing since you don't want to separate the community too much.
2- Design is very basic, but I'll give you points for not just using the default tinyIB layout.

That's pretty much it. Keep working on it and don't give up!


Keeping it simple, very nice. Honestly, you're doing it right so far.

I would make a point of trying to network with a lot of the small chans, people wash up in places like Samachan and Dreamchan just to keep moving on because of the slowness of these communities. Keeping the momentum up is key with an imageboard, and a post on a dead board could mean years of free advertizement to lost souls.


Good start so far. However, your site is slow and has error messages when you post. If you could fix those things, it'd be much better.

i know this is just basic existentialism talk, but we're so small i have trouble comprehending it.

i'll live maybe 60 more years, and in the grand scheme of things that tiny sliver of time will only account for one hundred billionth of the 200,000 years we've been living, of the 4 billion years this tiny earth has been spinning, the trillion years this big universe has existed and will keep existing. giving a species the intelligence to realize this feels like one big cosmic joke the gods like to tell at the water cooler. we, as a species, happened by chance.

and yet i'm still here, creating things, laughing at things, trying new things, reading new books, meeting new people, freaked out at how real this all is. i'm hardly a step into life and in a couple decades, i'll be back to dust. that's beautiful, somehow.

i should really go to bed

The universe existing for 13.7 billion years before your birth aside, that doesn't mean you have passed through any of that time at all. That chunk of time simply doesn't exist for you. So you can't argue death will be like what you experienced before birth because you didn't experience your lack of experience at all. You were not there.

It's a little hard to communicate this thought, but I'm basing it on relativity, how each observer in spacetime has their own clock and center (own reference frame). Time is relative and space is relative, so saying I was dead for 13.7 billion years before I was born because the universe was there is like saying I'm 300 kms from where I was 10 seconds ago because of the Earth's orbit around the Sun. Being dead "before" birth is strictly a relative relation and there's no absolute reason to pick the beginning of the Universe as our reference point. The only "absolute" reference frame we have is our own - I am where and when I am - which as far as we know is only defined between our birth and death.

>we're so small i have trouble comprehending it.
I think the problem lies in language. There is a gap between grammatically correct sentences and sentences whose meaning you can understand. Look at this sentence:
>that tiny sliver of time will only account for one hundred billionth of the 200,000 years we've been living
It follows the same grammatical rules as this similar sentence:
>Sleep accounts for a third of my day.
But the second can be related to something you have experienced, like going to bed at 11pm and waking up at 7am, whereas the first cannot.

When you read a sentence like the first, you understand it grammatically but cannot understand it meaningfully. You hit a wall and suspect that beyond this wall lies something which would overpower you if you could grasp it. But you can never do that. The result for most people is an existential sulk.

Humans are intelligent enough for language, but no-one is intelligent enough to comprehend all the things they can say in it.


that's a really interesting way to look at it.


Are you familiar with Kant's definition of the sublime?


No, I'm afraid not. Please explain for me, roll.

For a sushi wish, I wish it was about twice as active.

For a real wish, I wish I could interact with anyone, or even just my partner, without anxiety. Without remembering a misstatement I made 15 years ago.

That doesn't sound very comfy.


Strangers are strangers. People forget. I think even if you feel you messed up for them it won't make any difference in the long run. The only person it really affects is yourself, depending on how you deal with it


See, I kinda like it, but it's not fixing any of my problems. Might even be causing new ones.

If it 'might be true' or 'could have happened', then there's a very good chance that it isn't true, or it didn't happen

Make as many friends as you can, many more opportunities come through weak relationships than you think.

Decide what your objectives are and stick to that. Don't let anyone else set your objectives for you.

Also, have fun!


I had a similar experience with my universities anime club. Most of the focus was on the current seasonal anime, and discussion of older and/or more niche shows was usually met with blank stares. Most of the people there were kind and welcoming, but it got a bit boring having to talk about the latest episode of My Hero Academia 24/7.


All this talk about anime clubs and university… whenever people IRL mention anime, such as people I've met in college, I pretend to not be interested in it, or even to not know what it is at all. It's because I think I'm too old to still be into it, and I also know that people who are into anime often have a tendency to be weird (no offense, but you know the bad examples I'm talking about). I try to have a more professional (and I guess boring) facade in real life, so my odd interests are confined to image boards.

Hell, I've even come across people who mentioned image boards in person before, and I feigned ignorance because I felt kind of embarrassed for knowing about these kind of awkward sites that have poor reputations among normal people.

Is it strange to do this?


Not strange, but unfortunate. I understand the need to hide the fact that you like anime, but if the person you're talking to is into it too then there is not a chance that they will look down on you for it. If it helps, when asked about anime you could say you've seen some ghibli movies. Most people have seen one so it's not weird to say, plus it gives you a chance to talk to the person.


I joined the anime club as well, though I didn't manage to fit in very well. I did meet an irl japanese weeb transfer student though who also didn't fit in well. I went now and then over the years but I didn't get much out of it. I think clubs which outgoing people do is actually good if you're socially awkward because they will be able to kinda do the stuff you can't for you. Whereas in a club full of autists people just keep to themselves and you end up alone.

I wouldn't say it's strange but it's probably shooting yourself in the foot a bit. Just remember that the majority of stigma against anime and imageboards is actually contained within the community itself. Outsiders neither know about it nor care.
