...and it made me frown

It's not even necessarily that I'm not into what other people are into - oftentimes I am, I just don't see the point in talking in references. An occasional reference is fine (I make them too sometimes), but I know too many people who speak entirely in references and then judge "outsiders/n00bs" for not knowing. Also, if I haven't seen [whatever person is talking about], making me feel like I'm not worthy of your time isn't going to make me want to watch [whatever] any time soon! I just wish people weren't so smug and jerky. I don't know why I let it bother me so much, it just does. :|

*deep breath*

 

Anyway, sorry about your computer problems. And basically everything else going on in this thread. I wish I had a magic wand that made everything better.

Hehe I feel you, keep it easy. I think they are just majorly excited about something and they want to share it and do that in a kind of counter productive day. And when they find someone that also likes it they want to excitedly share it with references. I've also been on the excited side, actually broke a friendship for a week or what once... Now I try to keep myself in check.

 

And well, the computer problems are bad but I'll manage.

If I get pissed I'll just listen to the 'addicted' live show of 'devin townsend'.. and if I'm REALLY pissed I'll even listen to 'deconstruction', but that's only when I really need to get my rage out.

 

 

Also, I'm feeling like I'm doing about 80% of all the work needed to be done in the project, and the 20% that the other guy does is of low quality and full of grammar errors, which I have to fix. Sometimes it's so horribly bad that I'm thinking I could have just written the whole thing myself and have lost less time than now...

Yet at the same time I don't want to do the project on my own or whatever, maybe I'm just scared... Gah fucked up situation.

I get that - I get too excited whenever I meet someone with similar interests, too, and I've been known to totally wreck the situation because I was coming on too strong. But the people I'm talking about are just so... smug and rude about it. It's cool that you're excited but making someone feel like they aren't on the same "level" as you is just, like you said, counter-productive and a huge peeve for me. 

 

Sounds like a frustrating situation for you. I'm sorry, I wish I knew what to say... Just hope it gets better/less frustrating for you soon. :)

Fed up of feeling down about things I can't change. I should focus on my own positivity and just forget about the horrible, shitty stuff, but it's so hard when it's family.

It's becoming tiring, forcing the smile and the 'oh, I'm fine's. I can usually cope fine, or at least force it to the back of my mind but every once in a while, it gets me down. Depression is a slippery slope and I have to get myself out before I start to fall.

My writing is suffering, and I hate that. It's normally my escape.

I hate that slippery slope so much. I was reading an article yesterday about 21 comics that capture the frustrations of depression, and it's so true. Here's the link if you're interested:

The good thing is, at the very least, you will have some good days in there and when you do just make sure to remember them. I collect little mementos or look through pictures when I feel down so that I don't go down that slope at rocket speed. It sucks that your writing is suffering if that's normally your outlet... Maybe you can pick up something else, or just read for a while instead? Eventually the fog will lift. :)

 

And Gajeel, oh man that sucks. I'm sorry. :<

Thank you so, so much for posting that Lady Riddel, some of them are scarily accurate of me, especially number 9! I love number 13 too.

Like I said, most of the time I'm fine, or at least I can convince myself I am. I'm a happy, upbeat person but my biggest flaw is bottling everything up; I won't talk to people, not really. I always feel like a burden. I have amazing people who say they're there for me whenever, and they mean it, and I'll be like 'oh thanks, I appreciate that, I'll do it.' And it's a lie. I do appreciate it, I really, really do but I'm lying when I say I'll go to them. I just can't do it.

And Gajeel, that's really sucky. I hate it when you're so close to perfection and you're one hit off the mark. But at least you did really well; don't lose sight of that.

The Subway I go to for lunch everyday finally got the new garlic bread in.

It was wholly underwhelming.

So I disemboweled the manager.

Yeah, this is a recipe for disaster.

Dunno man, I'm into so kinky stuff. You'd have to go real far for it to be a disaster for me.

In hindsight, yes, you're probably right.

I did my best--I have no regrets.

Just about any time someone says "just do what you what", it means they will be disappointed in the end result and you'll need to fix it or eat the cost. Drove me nuts when I was doing hair. -.-

Took my first support call today; a seventy-four year old woman asking me how to make her text bigger. So I showed her how to access the magnifiying tool, and she thanked me and everything was great.

 

Then I found out I was supposed to transfer her to the department that would have charged her fiddybux to 'fix' her issue, because I'm only supposed to be handling internet issues this week.

 

I don't think I'm gonna have the fortitude to milk Nana Wrinklebottom for every penny for something I could literally fix with my eyes closed for free (and would gladly do so).

And this is exactly why I hated my time at the Dell supportdesk.
