what's your experience with love? falling in it, falling out of it, one-sided or mutual.

currently i'm crushing very, very hard on what might be the most unreadable person on earth. i fell in love (i guess) when they asked the professor if they could step out of class and stumbled over whether to say "can i" or "may i". they went with the latter (and said please) and dropped their phone on the way out.

crushing this hard is like throwing my heart and brain in a blender and pulverizing them at the highest speed, but the blender short-circuits and the whole thing just combusts and explodes. i've always been a hopeless romantic, so this is a real weird mix of unsurprising and absolutely terrifying. i've never been so frustrated and so joyful in my life.

how about you, sushis?

Update on this. After I got past my initial elation, I realized that a romantic relationship wasn’t what I wanted… it’s hard to parse, I was genuinely happy that I was confessed to. We never did anything but hold hands, but… we were friends throughout high school, and I got so used to being friends. My friends, her included, were finally the constants in my life I got after wanting friends and normalcy for so long, and I cherish all of them more than anything. I’m about to go off to college and am experiencing a lot of changes in my life. I just didn’t know I wasn’t prepared to cast another emotional variable into that mix. The concept of the intricacy and difficulty of an LDR also intimidated me a lot given that I’ve never had a relationship. What I really needed, badly, was my friends. The timing on this ended up being very bad.

We’re leaving the relationship amicably and are going to continue to be friends but I still made her sad by putting her through this roller coaster and that’s what makes my heart ache. Not ending the relationship. That’s how I know it was the right decision. I feel relieved that we’re friends again but sad about the emotional difficulty of this stuff.

Never underestimate the importance of platonic relationships, sushis.


fallen in love again for the first time in like, idk 15 years? it feels exactly like it did back then and i think engaging it will help me move on from my past (my first real) relationship.

i have to tread so carefully though.


ah, this one is at the bump limit. oh well, I'm happy enough to let my thoughts slip away into the void.


I know this thread is over the bump limit, but sometimes it's best to yell into the void.

Around last autumn, my friend confessed to me. Feeling wasn't mutual, we stayed friends. Classic. But now I've come to the realization that I actually loved and still love them too. I was just too stupid and dense to realize that. But now I don't know if I should go through it. I feel like we're a bit closer than just friends, but less than lovers. It's complicated. I'm just afraid of ruining the relationship we've built. Guess I'll tell her one day.

If you ever happen to read this super vague text, then know I love you and I'll love you till the end of time.


Well, it's been a year and a half and I haven't found anyone yet. Cheers to yelling into the void though!

Have you ever ran away from home, or been kicked out, or just been homeless in general?

OP here, I never expressed thanks for these posts. I didn't end up going, things got better for a bit, there's a chance I might soon though. If I do then I promise to remember all your advice. Love you rolls.


Depends on how long you think you would need to be away from a real kitchen with ingredients?

If it was just a handful of days and I had the money, I would get some MRE type meals, because they have the heat source to cook it with integrated into the kit, lugging about some type of hobo stove or something could be a bother, especially if you have no experience using it.

If you were going to be heading into the wild (regardless if urban or forest kind of wild) for a while, like weeks, then I'd get some type of portable kitchen unit that runs on some heat source that is both inexpensive and not too weighty, like maybe the gel type fuel (think its called FireDragon? same company makes lightweight portable stoves to burn it in). And then a large suitable container for water (need to be enough both for drinking and cooking liquids), and then some spices, some red lentils (cooks fast enough for portable stoves) and whatever else you could put in lentil stew that stores easily during travel circumstances. E.g. rice, spices, millets, oats (nice to cook on its own to change up things, just lentils gets boring).
That should be a very efficient way to survive, a weeks worth of food couldnt cost more than 10 bucks, if you dont account for the price of the spices. Fuel and the portable kitchen thing shouldnt be more than something like 10-20 bucks max either, if you're buying it at a store with sane prices.

If you are going to be homeless for a while I wouldn't put your primary focus on food. Shelters and churches are very generous and many people tend to gain weight while sleeping rough. That said shelters aren't very pleasant places to stay.

If it is short-term innawoods for a few weeks solid fuel as >>11696 said is a good idea, I'd also recommend wood gas stoves. Much more efficient and produces almost no smoke compared to campfires/conventional wood stoves, a Silverfire is around $30. Do get a concealment cover for your tent, getting harassed by cops and rude people are going to be something you have to deal with.

Good luck sushi.

Has anyone here dropped out of collage or university? Was it a good decision? How did it affect your life? I'm dropping my course and I'm pretty bummed out. I feel like a failure.
Sorry for un-comfy

Thank you all for responding, it means a lot. I don't know anybody in person who has withdrawn from a degree so it really felt like I was being left behind by all my peers (especially my sister, who is incredibly successful).

In all honesty I should have quit after the first year, but I was so stubborn that I carried on even when it was clear that it brought me nothing but stress. Having had some weeks now to reflect, it does feel like a weight off of my shoulders.

How did you take your next steps? I suppose this is no different from having graduated, but all the ideas I had for what to do next in my life revolved around me passing the degree. Suddenly the future is so uncertain and I find it scary

not my story but my brother went to university for 2 years because my parents forced him After not being able to decide on a major and dropping out he turned his attention full-time to his hobbies: photography and photo retouching.
He took a two-year associates degree from a local community college in this field and worked a bunch of odd jobs and gigs for several years, scraping by. Eventually he landed a full-time position at a large agency and now makes more than many of the people I went to grad school with, without any of the debt.
So if there's something you'd rather be/do, work hard at it and maybe you will find your path.

>Has anyone here dropped out of collage or university?
Yes actually.
>Was it a good decision?
For the time yes. I was very inexperienced and had little means to pay for it. Me back then wasn't going to be able to pull it off. My second go around we're getting that degree though. However long it takes.
>I've dropped out of law
Ooh how was it? I've considered pursuing a degree in that field. Its been a long time dream of mine to get behind the civil rights movement like my grandfather and his father before him. They were in the offices of the NAACP and LULAC back in the day as an accountant and a treasurer. The lawyers were the real warriors though, and that's where I want to be.


I was heavily encouraged to go to university after school but had no real ambition or direction. I decided to study biology because it was one of the few subjects I enjoyed in school but quickly fell behind, failed all my courses, and dropped out after a semester.

>>11486 has the right advice, working menial jobs for 5 years was really useful. I think a sense of pointlessness and depression is just endemic to who I am because I've never been able to shake it but at least now I have the maturity to sustain full time study in something useful.

Don't feel like a failure, it's just part of growing up. Spend the next couple of years figuring out what it is you want to do if you need to, just try not to waste it. My main regret is simply not going back sooner or using my time to have more interesting experiences. Still, it's good to know that it's never too late; I know a chick who quit her job as a pharmacist to study CS because she was bored of her career. There's no shame in being in education when you're older, not everyone follows the same trajectory in life.


I studied pre-med for 3 years but had to drop out because I was just doing what I was told and wasn't really coping and ended up in a psych hospital. I spent about 5 years in and out of different life stages and only last year I finally went back to University to study what I really want to.

It obviously really, really affected my life and its progression but I would never say dropping out was a mistake. It's just part of the tapestry of my life it took to get where I am now.

Thank you, I'll do that right now


The transition from being in school with the same people all day every day to being an adult and not having any IRL social interaction unless I seek it out gave me some serious whiplash. I also do most of my work alone or with minimal human contact so even if I was into workplace fraternization like some folks are that wouldn't work either. The idea of actively going and seek out friends through hobbies and gatherings and things still feels kind of alien, though it might have to do with being more used to talking to people sushi rollymously online, where through sheer numbers there're always compartmentalized swarms to interact with, whether or not that kind of thing is conducive to forming lasting friendships.

hi op did you ever find friends?
i am in the same situation except i have 0 online friends too
i do have a family, but that's different


I wonder if you guys know that friends shape you. It can be like being in a relationship, and choosing the wrong partner can be hell.

I'm just pointing this out because I used to feel like this and then I realized, after trying to befriend people, that the majority of people aren't worth the time.


Furthermore, many are concerned more about how well the relationship is, what the relationship is, where the relationship is, where they each are, how each are, how many relationships one has, how alone but plenty their contacts are, how many people value you, how to make these people value you more, why don't I click as we-

But never is there a question on where you are going, why you need to be friends, what is bad about being alone, what interests me.

Most people aren't worth the time. Often they'll depress you.
I will concede that having a group that encourages each other and creates an interesting world together is valuable, but unlikely to find by posting your contact on some forum or sending status updates through IM.

As an update to the majo no tabitabi thread in /otaku/ (since I don't want to derail that thread anymore), I figured out what the problem was. I'd been putting the subtitle and scale filters as two separate -vf options instead of a single list of filters, which was causing the scale filter to override the subtitles.


At this point I think I'm fed up with my school constantly asking about their students' dreams in literally everything. Weekly assignments, essays, papers, exams… since I have to lie on every single one of it.
I don't have any particular dreams, I don't even bother to. I'm just living according to where life takes me. I have goals, but not necessarily a dream, and those goals are selfish as fuck (buying a PC that's good enough to play modern games, saving up money to pay for both bills and hobbies).
It's ticking me off in the wrong way about their optimism that their students have dreams. I'm sorry, mine is crushed a long time ago, so can you stop giving your students assignments like that for, you know, a day? 'Cause it's starting to get old to repeat the same lie just to get high score credits… I enrolled to a university damn it, not some sort of motivational seminar!


Quick question are your first to second year of college? A lot of colleges do stuff like this to be a pseud filter. Kids who don't know what they want to be when they grow up and choose a degree randomly or people with no passion, but a love of money tend to be trouble for colleges. Those stupid essays are a way to nip that idea at the bud and prevent them from wasting 4 years on a degree that makes them go "I hate this".

I have the same problem too. I don't see my degree as something I should be passionate about, but as a means to an end for money. I'd be ok doing any degree if it made me money and left me enough free time for my hobbies. I've long ago accepted I'd rather daydream about what I hope in life than getting it, so I have no real dream I want to achieve. Like you I just lie when they ask the question

A bit different, but I can't take "how would you survive X", "live in x time period", or live in the wild type questions. I'm diabetic so the answer always devolves to "I would have no insulin if I were at X. I die in a week". You can't stretch that answer out into 3 paragraphs so I just forget I have diabetes and make shit up.


It seems like whenever I say goodbye it's forever. I wish I could head to a diner with one of my old friends and just spend hours catching up and reminiscing.
Make sure you have some stories to tell them when you meet again.
