I couldn't agree more.

 

So, the first time I posted in this thread, I made the 400th post. My last post was the 500th. Coincidence? I THINK NOT.

That's....excellent. How did it feel? I just put a cigarette out on my arm. We all self harm in some way or another.

lol, I have a cigarette burn on my arm too, but it wasn't self inflicted. It was a... dude thing... where we were giving each other cigarette burns that night. I have a friend, his girlfriend of like 5 years had broken up with him a month or two before (a long distance thing by then, and apparently rife with infidelities on her part) and since then he had fallen into this terrible spiral of Klonopin abuse (Klonopin, side note, worst drug ever. Every time I took one I was asleep ten minutes later and in a coma for 10 hours, but he was able to pop them as easy as Xanex, it was a problem). Anyway, so he's totally fucked up, comes to try to get in on the cigarette burn game, "Who wants to do me." He's being kind of aggressive about it and really pushy and none of us felt comfortable giving him a burn.

So, the others and I we go inside and start playing WoW (at the time me and my friends hung out by sitting in the same room and playing WoW for hours), but he disappears for half an hour.

 Finally he comes back, crying, he had snuck off and done it himself in private, it had taken him a couple of tries and his was bigger than the rest of ours. He was a mess.

Poor kid. Closing note: Now he's the only stable one of us. He's a gym teacher at a lower school, gets along great with his new gf, and has mostly paid down his student loans (which he spends most every spare dime on) since he was also the only one of us who graduated even close to on time.

My self harm of choice is psychological. My mind is a deeply scarred battlefield. I spend a lot of time trying to break the habit of talking shit about myself.

Damn, you people pass some crazy amounts of time in this thread. I go off the grid for a week and there's hundreds of new posts. Hope you all had a great New Year's. I'm finally back from faerieland so I thought I'd pop in and say hi.

Letting my hair down for a night turned into a right bender. There were raves in a gay bars, drugs in pub toilets, and waaayy too much vodka. Finally came round on the evening of the 2nd in my friend's toddler's bed (no, you sickos, her daughter was with the grandparents so I ain't going to jail) wondering what the hell had happened and who had abducted me and put in the weird pink room.

I have no idea how the fuck I used to do that shit every weekend.

Result - I have an ankle thats swollen as fuck and really hurts. No idea how that happened. However I also have a date this upcoming weekend with a psychotic quasi-lesbian, who as far as I can tell, just wants to eat me alive to prove men won't cut it. Which is fine by me.

All in all that was a way better New Year's than last time round. Back to the grindwheel now though, back to the frontlines and all that! I noticed a few of you talking Solarcide a page or so back. That is super-cool. For the record we are happy to consider stories from anyone over here. You guys review our stories and check out our posts. That means we love you. Always chuffed to check out stuff people send us, it makes my day without fail.

Peace.

Dexter season 6 was disappointing up until the last scene of the last episode, that almost redeemed the season. I like cliffhangers.  My current guilty pleasure is a TV show called Revenge.

Naw, I mean like...earlier this week i got laid with my ex, and it was not nice at all. idk...it's confusing. I feel as though sex is uninteresting. As are relationships, because for people my age, relationships are in the end, just about fucking.

Relationships at any age start out about fucking. Once it stops being about fucking, and you take a good look at it, most of the time you just end up staring at a person you barely know who bitches you out because you hang up the toilet paper the wrong way.

Of course, I'm pretty jaded. Time for that break for me, too.

We're all damaged little people in our own ways, I've got more baggage than an average oceanliner, but seem to be drawn to maintain relationships that are little more than disguised addictions. It makes sense though, I've never met anyone who's fully kicked an addiction without just replacing it with something moderately healthier.

yay! this is my fourth step of sex addiction:

I have had sex with a boy, and a girl.

I've given head to two seperate boys and a girl.

That's all. (This is over 2011)

That doesn't sound so bad. I just found out that all but a few of the dudes I've slept with share a house 3 blocks from mine. And the ones who don't live in a seperate house together with my kid's father. Sufficing to say, life is awkward in my neighbourhood. It's an incestuous little city I live in.

I'm thinking about making "Ex-Boyfriends' Club" shirts for them, but since they probably have no idea, I think I might as well stay mute about it.

Hahaha it's a combination of sex, drugs, booze, and zombification, yes. Lately, I do a lot less of all those things, but the boys don't stop. Plus, no one ever (excuse my generalization) dates band guys for the intelligent conversation, so I don't know how much of an effect I can really claim on any of them.

There was a revision of science? What's happened now? :P

I'm halfway through this story I'm writing and only just realized I'm basically writing a horror version of Winnie the Pooh. I have a character named Jerome the Bear and he has the exact same personality. It's very depressing. I've never even read the books and only ever saw glimpses of the show. HOW DOES THIS HAPPEN.

He lives in a Theocracy, I don't think the Queen will mind. But, in the US, no matter what the Republicans say, kids are allowed to pray all they want in school. Teachers can't lead the class in prayer, but I mean, you can't get in trouble for praying by yourself. Just don't be a pharisee about it.

But then of course, this hypothetical praying person couldn't rub everyone's face in how "good" they are, and it would defeat their motivation for piety.

It probably sounds like I'm taking this too seriously, I'm sorry for that. I've been biking clear accross town to get to class twice a day all week, my car is broken, I got tripped up and faceplanted over a railroad indent this morning, it has been rainy and cold, and I feel like shit. And when I'm grumpy I take everything literally.

Profunda Saint-Sylvain's picture
Profunda Saint-... from Calgary, AB is reading Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy Series January 11, 2012 - 8:57am

That sounds like a pretty crappy morning. I hope the rest of your day gets better :)

I just remember being in elementary school and having to say the Lord's Prayer, and then suddenly we weren't allowed to sing God Save The Queen anymore, but that might have had more to do with us becoming too familiar with the Sex Pistols version than anything political. Even though that followed shortly after, no more prayers. Which was fine for me, since I didn't know what prayers were for, I thought we were literally asking someone to bring us lunch, and sometimes, someone did, so I think I believed in its power for at least a couple weeks.
