How do you start your day?

I usually prepare some coffee and buns, boot up my notebook and put on some OST that guides me out of the dream world. Sometimes it provides a catching tune to hum after rushing through morning toilette or on the way to work.

Music is essential for my wellbeing.

week days
>wake up at 8
>stumble into shower
>before I get out turn it to cold and try and last for 20 seconds
>grind some coffee beans
>make an espresso the size of a normal coffee (triple maybe?)
>realize I'm late for college
>drink coffee and leave
>wake up at mid day
>make some eggs or cheese on toast
>close all curtains and sit in the same place for all day


Tea and a protein-heavy breakfast with the paper or a book if it's a weekend. I like to start slow on Sundays especially.
During the week I start my day pretty shittily, coffee and a pastry or something fast and then im out the door. I don't sleep well during the week and I wake up badly because of it.
>Music is essential for my wellbeing
punk and rap are the only way for me to get started on a weekday properly

as comfy as i can with some nice food, sadly i have a bad tendency to wake up late nowadays but i love early morning!


this is for school days


>depending how tired i am, snooze and stay in bed for an extra 10 minutes, or get up right away like i should
>bathroom, drink some water, rinse retainer
>make/eat breakfast
>maybe check stuff online if i have time
>brush teeth
>get dressed
>pack bag (if i haven't the night before)
>go to bus stop and hope it's not full/late


On weekends and holidays I wake up around midday but end up laying in bed until 2 or so, at which point I force myself out of bed and eat something.
Normally I get up around 6 (am), quickly eat breakfast and then hurry out the door. I try to stay on the move as much as possible so I don't end up doing something that makes me late.

Why do i feel this sense of impending doom? i think ive gotten things figured out and i can clearly see what i need to do to live a good life, but i feel with every step i take, with every month that passes, with every changing season, im only awaiting a brutal revaluation bound to happen in my lifes time. Like a day of judgement, a day that breaks all logic and bends reality. the answer to all the problems that life has.

I feel like im going to meet god. Like we are going to meet god, and transcend into a higher being.

Am i crazy sushirolls? does anyone else feel it?

This is true. We have all the good things we have because we don't have to feed ourselves. There's nothing you can do but hope the food keeps coming really, which is what's so scary about it.

Everyone becomes an expert in something and does it for each other, and hope others do theirs for you.

Also the US is easily able to feed itself. I read about it somewhere but since forgot the details but the mid west alone produces a huge surplus of food and is the worlds largest food exporter. Followed by, believe it or not, the Netherlands which has about 45% of the US export value.

That said, I think it would probably be a good thing if a slight knowledge of growing food was more widespread. Just in case.

>I just don't think that every super market needs to be stocked with produce from around the globe.
The simple answer to that is that the places which allow for various types of food are few, and the development to exploit it to the full is even more rare. Lots of logistics is usually a sign of efficiency in production. You pick a place that suits something, get good at it then send it where it's needed. It's the same reason you have one hospital filled with experts in one place, then bring the patients to it.

>>2498 >>2497 >>2496 >>2492
I don't like the idea of shipping food all over the world, it seems wasteful. But I do appreciate the benefits, done well it definitely allows everyone to have a better quality of life.

What keeps me comfy at night is doing my little bit, buying local stuff whenever it's available, growing a little bit of my own food.
Whilst the economics of growing your own staples kinda suck, there's plenty of things you can grow that are really rewarding. Fruit and herbs are my favourites because they often suffer the most from long distance shipping, a fresh tomato grown by a beginner in the wrong climate can still beat anything from the supermarket.

Sometimes I feel like OP, that no matter what I do it'll all fall apart in the end. But working to make my little bit of the world comfier for everyone helps to keep my mind off it. I just do my bit and hope everyone else does theirs.

Another thing that keeps me going when all seems dark is the idea of feedback. Fedeback in society often seems positive, people just go with the flow, they see good they do more good, they see bad they do more bad. Sometimes it seems like for that reason we're just a few really shit days away from a downward spiral into eternal shittyness.
But the fact that humans are still around and not doing too badly suggests to me that there's some strong negative feedback too, and that's where I put my faith.
On some level, almost everyone wants things to be better and has the capability to make them so. Today, they might not care, but the worse things get the more motivated people are to fight it. Opression breeds resistance, adversity strengthens resolve, and as long as the knowledge remains that things could be better, they will eventually get better again.

Remember rolls, the smallest act of rebellion against a hopeless situation can inspire a whole counterculture. Vive la révolution confortable!

Woops, I completely misread >>2358 and got a little carried away.
Hopefully there's still something worth reading in my crazy tired person ramblings.


That was interesting enough to remind I should buy or find the necessary to grow herbs to bring more joy into my food.

Your feedback part is interesting, but I'm already too drunk to add something of value about it. I can fantasize about hermit life and hide it all I want, I'm an empty shell without the validation and recognition of the few people I adore

Wow what faggy replies. I'm starting to think this is really the homo board.


Well, if this is the homo board, then let’s invite you in the fun sushi, I suck your dick with my soft lips and I’ll be sure to rub your balls with my manly hands. Then we can get into the most gay thing possible.

Do you Sushi Rolls have any hobbies outside of /silicon/ stuff? What projects are you working on? How did you get into the hobby and why do you enjoy it?

I'm personally into cosplay. Just finished making Corvo's mask and am working on finishing up the rest of the costume in time for a convention in September. I like cosplay because it's completely different from the coding & analysis I do during my day job, and I like working with my hands. Good cosplay involves sculpting, sewing, crafting, fitness, photography, and elements from many other different hobbies. Plus, the conventions themselves are really fun.

I can see through both of them, but they can't zoom/move/do anything cool from the games. Real-life optics don't work that way unfortunately.

Here's a shitty pic of the full costume, I didn't get any nice ones of myself unfortunately.


Hey, that's cool!


my hobbies are gambling, electronics and computers, games (tekken7 and ff14), languages, and all kinds of consumeable media reaching from anime and manga to movies and literature but that goes without saying i guess.

i've picked up a guitar once but never went through with it and i was considering to pick up /ic/.


I enjoy trombone and karate. Recently I've also started writing my own Visual Novel, that's pretty fun so far. I've always been the kind of person who leaves projects half-finished, so it feels good to actually be making progress on this.


very impressive sushi!

So i recently stumbled across solarisjapan(.)com It's got some pretty dank stuff listed, and it's tempting. I've heard maximiliandood talk about he's gotten things from here, but i would like a second opinion. just to be sure it's safe. Has any roll here used this site to order goods? How was the service? thanks in advance


Thanks for sharing roll, seems like a cool site.
If I but anything off it, I'll let you know in this thread.

bats are flying rats
I had bats in my roof once
they shit everywhere, and their semi-liquid shit stinks and corrodes wood and paint
and I couldn't get rid of them because they are under protection or some shit
after they were gone, my roof needed super expensive repairs, but the same people who refused to allow me to delete bats, said my roof is not their problem )))

bats are super annoying, not comfy at all

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.

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.


Hopefully OP still lurks around.
I've been pondering about this these past few days.
Surely you mean Sapir-Whorfe, which I used to consider true, now I'm not so sure, but I have realized that a very inherent part of language is culture.
What I mean is that the structure of the language probably doesn't affect the structure of our thoughts, that there are proto-linguistic structures taking place in our brain before our thoughts are translated into language, so that languages are actually a couple layers above "pure thought".
However, in everyday thinking we "dialogue" with ourselves, and in so we use language structures heavily informed by culture, for speech is mostly the use of learned patterns, the more common of which are expressions said by those around us and not a part of the language per se.
Anyway I think that everything we learn is a language of sorts, so "language" is an inherent part of human experience.
However, since each spoken language conveys a culture of sorts, and in learning a foreign language one has to learn the culture of the region(s) where the language is spoken; then I'd say learning a language is acquiring a new culture. So if there is a culture whose character you really like, you'd do well in learning that language. I've come to realize that I have an affinity to the japanese people, not because of their cartoons, but for it's quiet methodism.
There are other roads you can go. For example Lojban is a conlang that aims to be "culturally neutral", so if you want a sort of a "blank slate" language you can pick that. However, language is inherently informed by culture, so it's not really ideally neutral. It's community is on the internet and becuase of it's goals it's likely to attract geeky ppl who look at planets technically oriented people like computer scientists, mathematicians, linguists. The demographic is obviously closely related to the culture (man I've been repeating the word culture over and over, culture)
Somewhere else I also saw the idea of "visual thinking" where instead of having a dialogue with speech, you visualize your thoughts as images. Which is also very interesting.
To close, I've had for a while the idea of learning a language such as lojban and immerse myself in it enough that I end up *thinking* in that language instead of english. (Actually I think in english half of the time, it being my second language)


if you have some free time, you should check out good old neon by dfw. it touches on the idea of translating between things intrinsically understood to english a bit. either way, it's a nice read.

Grab an umbrella and go for a walk at any nature walks nearby. On rainy days they are usually devoid of people and people-made sounds. P E R F E C T


I go on walks like most people here, one of the most amazing ones was at 5:00am in some woods. The rain has something about it that just "washes" the stress away…

If it's summertime, I love to open the windows and feel the wind and listen to the thunders and the rain while playing a video game. If it's cold, I put on my coat and take a walk around, maybe stop by a bar to drink a coffee and listen to music and casually browsing the web for a while. Rain is the perfect weather for comfy spacing out.

Share and archive your dreams here sushis. I'll start.

I dreamed I was an eldritch monster who took peoples eyes. A tar-like tentecle shot out from my palms and took the eyes straight out of their sockets. For some reason it would only take one at a time, so you had to do it twice to completely remove both of them.

I took the eyes of some middle aged man who was being horrible to his daughter.

Last night I had a spooky dream. It was not a nightmare, and I kind of liked the … well you'll see what it is.
I was in a crowded place, some kind of event or something, out in the open, a wide place.
There was a big thing, about 30 ft tall, and it was covered with cloth, seemingly several layers, to keep all light from touching it. At the bottom there was an opening through which people would walk in.
I was told that it was a sort of shrine where people would worship a god that represented a corpse, and that was the reason that it had to be in complete darkness (or at least, untouched by sunlight). It was not a cult like that of Santa Muerte in Mexico and other parts of south america. Santa Muerte delivers death (I think), this was a representation of that very state of being dead, or being a corpse. Spooky.
Pic semi related. This resembles a buddha, though the one in my dream wasn't anything remotely related with enlightenment or any higher state, but something wicked.


I now realize I have a tendency towards spooky dreams and shrines


The question is: did you go in and see the lich?

Are you sure you have the right server and channel? There are always plenty of people, even though it's mostly silence. Just say hi.

I dreamed I was with a girl at a party and I knew she was going to break up with me but when we went into a corner to discuss it I saw another guy yelling at and hitting his girlfriend so I walked over to stop him and then I tried to tackle him but he caught me and threw me off balance (I knew it was a bad idea the whole time but I felt like I had to do something) then suddenly some old guy picked him up and tossed him aside before he could beat me up and it felt like everything was going to be alright because at least I tired, even though I knew I wouldn't be able to solve it all on my own. I was laying on the floor and my glasses had fallen off and there was some 80s song playing, sounded like something out of the breakfast club, and it really did feel like it was all going to be OK. and then I woke up


File: 1501640781041.jpg (1.54 MB, 2210x1578, american_white_pelican.jpg)

I dreamed I was in a company of monster slaying semi-medieval warriors on a mission in some unknown desolate city.

In the dream, we were recruiting new soldiers to make up for a few losses we took, presumably during a previous battle or something. So we were lining them up in a big clearing in order to inspect them, when suddenly there was this sound, kind of like a passing jet, in the sky. At fist, nobody could recognize where the sound was coming from untill a pelican, as big as a building, appeared in the sky. Then it suddenly swooped down and started dive bombing us with it's claws.

It didn't look as big in the sky but when it got closer to the ground I could sense how big and heavy the thing was because of the big booms it made when it's claws touched the ground to grab somebody close to me. So we all scattered into the nearest building where we spent the night in because the pelican kept circling above even when we were gone.

>kinda looked like pic related but it had eagle talons instead of webbed feet
