Do you have a neat web community or chat group you'd like to invite people to? Maybe want to drop your messaging handle and strike up some conversations? Do it here.

Chat/community/personal ads are no longer allowed on the rest of the site, except maybe on /hell/.

Important Note: This doesn't mean that you can't talk about communities or chat groups. You could, for example, have a thread where you ask people about web communities they visit. You just can't open your thread with an advertisement.

One post per service please! Duplicate ads may be deleted. This especially includes discord links. To make a permanent discord link, click on instant invite, go to advanced settings, and change the expire time to never. Dead links suck. If your discord link expires, your post will be deleted and you may receive a short warning ban.

No. The past several years I've been living an asocial life, communicating only with npcs in supermarkets and such. And I'm still not sure if I miss having people I can hang out with. Imageboards are great social substitutes, and even better.

Or well, scratch that. Let some internal horrors out last time I met my social circle drinking. Don't remember what I've written to folks on public facebook when I came home blacked out, and I'm more inclined to just letting it be social suicide than to check what it is and deleting it / apologizing to people if it was something bad. Something comfortable about just letting go. Having some time to just focus on rebuilding myself, exploring things I've always wanted to without judgement.

No, I have nothing in common with most people. I got way too into learning Japanese and don't like American media anymore, and I've basically become too much of a weeb for everyone.

I have some friends I see once in a while. One of them is obnoxious, trying to brag about themselves and make back handed insults at me. But I hang out with him a bunch since I have no one else right now, and he also pays for a lot of really good food. Then there's all these people I lost touch with since graduating, but thanks to me getting drunk and posting hysterical posts on facebook about my anger and depression, I've alienated many of them. Doesn't help that I can't even buy a gun to end it in my damn state because of mental illness history.

>>1959 here. I've started doing drawings using large pads of paper either on an easel or a clipboard. While I've found that it's actually a little easier for me to draw that way, the paper is too big for my scanner, so I'm back to taking pictures of my drawings.

I kept a diary my first year of uni. I think it's handy to just let all your darkest thoughts out where no one can see them and then think if you really believe them. Almost always I found that I didn't but I couldn't have done that if didn't confront them first.

That page looks like some trendy hipster stuff. Upon more navigation, it really is some hipster stuff. Meh, the bullet journal was invented by a designer guy.
But I really liked it, it's like org-mode on paper. Who'd say. It's similar to what I've been doing only with a framework. I guess I'll try that or adapt it to my needs.
Thanks for that

Yeah, just based on the page I immediately hated bullet journal, but I want better methods of organizing myself, so I read some about it, and it has some good developments over what I've already been doing. I guess I should have included a "vain airbnb hipster veneer" warning.

Trying to figure out what I can do to better my life during my free time and try to get out and socialize but there's literally no where to hang out and meet new people at where I live besides a few redneck bars. I don't drink and I don't feel comfortable being around those types of people. Does anyone have any tips for someone who lives in small town america that wants to get out of the house and enjoy life?

Also by the way, I don't have a car either.

You are pretty stuck with out a car. That's how I made a lot of my friends through messing about with cars. I joined a sort of group of people who just met up the only thing linking them was modified cars other than that it was just to hang about in car parks and make noise. I'd work on getting a car if I was you. Check papers for charity events and stuff like that. In the UK we have something called the round table group you could see if there is anything like that in your area, or start one. Maybe it's on you to make the fun things in the area.

I’m going to try and look at this from a pragmatic perspective, so hopefully this doesn’t come across as cold or anything!

If you have a job, start saving money. Try to get a couple thousand dollars(if possible) saved and look for jobs in other, more highly populated cities. Look for apartments or houses that would fit your budget, and use the money you’ve saved up to pay for the initial living costs before your job starts. From there, try to find organizations or clubs that might interest you and it’ll be easy to make friends.

If you don’t have a job, try to look for organizations or clubs in your area. Even if they might not be ideal, you’ll still meet people to hang out with and might learn a thing or two about something you didn’t know before.

Above all else, though, I recommend improving yourself in one way or another. I’m not implying you’re a bad person dear sushi, but I’ve found that throughout times I’ve dedicated myself to making my life better, people seem to naturally come in. Exercise outside or at a gym, get a job if you don’t have one, or get more involved with that job and get to know your coworkers outside of it.

I know that feel. I think a lot of people naturally gravitate towards others that have their shit together and are actually happy, whenever I've had my life sorted I always find a lot more people approaching me than normal. Feels pretty good.

Tell me about the places you live in sushis. I live in a small city with a lot of public servants, it's an odd feeling to be in a very urban area but still always be running into people you know. Hoping to go innawoods nearby soon, the weather gets really cold this time of year.

I live in Stillwater, Oklahoma USA. It's a nice college town, totally deserted over the summer and on spring break, surrounded by ranches and oil refineries. Tornado season always gets interesting, but the sunsets can't be beat. Plus the people are much friendlier than on the east coast where I used to live.

I live on an island on the west coast of leaf country. It's a comfy place where it rains a lot, and most urban areas are close to a forest, so the scenery is always really pretty.
The town I live in is a decent size; not the biggest here, but we're just big enough to warrant a few smol shopping malls and plenty of mom and pop businesses.
During the summer drives down island are so pretty because of all the farms and untouched beauty.

Does anyone else hate the fact they know a language?

All of my thoughts are framed as dialogue - when I think about a topic all I really do is have an imaginary conversation with someone in my head about the topic. I plan out sentences I might say, adjectives I might use, etc etc.

But the problem is that words are all mundane. I didn't invent them, so I only have a clumsy grasp of what they mean. Because I think in English words therefore, all of my thoughts are muddled and slightly ambiguous.

I wish that I could somehow forget every language or method of communication I know - I feel that then my thoughts would at least have the chance of being something higher, something greater than myself. The way my thoughts are pinned to the English language depresses me.

I wish I had never been taught to speak or write as a child.

Re wordless thoughts, I am almost certain these exist. When translating from a learnt language (in my case German) to my mother tongue, there is sometimes a perceptible delay between 'knowing' what the word is and finding the English equivalent. During this time it's as if I've found the key to getting the English word out but I have yet to find the box holding it.

 No.2220

>>2219
Like that "I have the word right at the tip of my tongue yet I can't quite remember what it was" thing that sometimes happens, right?
Which means the concepts in our brains are probably abstract and not bound to words. It's probably the other way around, the words are attached to the symbols at the time we compile them into phrases.

 No.2221

I don't know if thoughts, ideas, or arguments are held back by language. I think you still have them, but you might have to use simple language when you have to discuss those thoughts with others.

When I went to the university, my lecturers often told us to use simple language, since it makes it much easier for others to understand the ideas we tried to argue. They also said people often tried to use words or sentences they didn't fully understand, which makes it harder to understand what the writer really meant. You might need more time to explain something when you use simple language, but your ideas are much easier to understand.

It's like when you discover this fancy word that you like, and you start using it as often as you can, but you don't really understand what it means, or how it should be used.

When the word you want to use is right on the tip of your tongue, it might be better to use a longer sentence or maybe even a paragraph instead of that word.

This is mostly about how you share your thoughts and ideas rather than the way you produce those thoughts and ideas. I have no idea if my thoughts are held back by my known languages. It's not something that I've ever really thought about, but I have noticed that I think more in english when I'm trying to solve a more technical problem.

 No.2222

>>2221
Often though, a single word expresses a thought clearly, and sometimes such word is a bit "fancy" because what it tries to convey is more specific than what simple generic words can.
Obviously this works when you know the word you're using, rather than doing guesswork. But I wouldn't sacrifice preciseness or succintness just so I can use generic words.
Then also, it is sometimes better to use a single word that expresses a thought precisely than to use a long convoluted sentence which ends up obscuring the thought because of it's verbosity.

 No.2223

>>2222
I even got quads which backs up my argument :^)
But I just wanted to add that, were I better with speech in general, I would try to keep my phrasing as efficient as possible.
I actually dislike verbosity, and while I do elaborate quite a bit when I comment in imageboards and otherwise, it is just because I just spit out my thoughts. If I were to compose, I would take my time to compile everything in as few words as possible that convey my thought concisely without so much verbal boilerplate.
Again, I think that all this verbosity drawns what I try to convey in a sea of clumsy words.
