I have run into a very rare and unusual problem for me.

ya see, it snowed a crap ton yesterday, in something called a Bomb Cyclone

https://www.denverpost.com/2019/03/14/colorado-strongest-storm-record/

and it just absolutely messed up all the roads, and all the things and places i usually go to were closed down. So i got to stay at home yesterday and today

however, I just finished a project that i've spent the last 4 months making, and i had no pressing homework or things that were necessary for me to do. i tried doing some kung fu inside, but i can only do small bursts as i wait for my chest to heal fully

so it left me in a unique predicament for me.

I had all the time in the world, and nothing to do...

i mean, in all honesty i have plenty to do. there are games i have, books i can read, videos online to watch, movies and shows i can catch up on. I had plenty to "do". but i tried doing some of them, and instead of feeling content, i felt agitated and moved away from them.

so i've just been antsy and not very mobile, and i certainly don't want to go anywhere right now because of the mess that is outside

so i was hoping y'all can keep me company or something! tell me what's going on in your world!

any cool projects you are working on?

have you ever had sphagetti sauce on rice?

a tale of horror and fury of the creature with the wings of a bat, sharp deadly talons, and the face and trunk of a wild african elephant.

possibly more than that. This friend of mine is someone I met 15 years ago who would eventually become a pretty close friend, and then he moved out of Texas and kind of stagnated and floundered where he was living in Ohio, then he moved back to Texas, all our mutual friends got i to relationships and started having kids, the a couple years after he moved back I moved out to California to be with Thorax, he stayed in Texas for another 6 years, and then a little less then a year ago, he quits his job he had for the past ten years, and takes a new job in Virginia, because he felt like he was stagnating even worse by staying in San Antonio, made even worse by a bad break up between him and another guy, and his job becoming increasingly soul crushing.

So sometime at the beginning of feburary he sent this really really long and heartfelt letter about a lot of things on his mind lately and how that all relates back to me and our friendship over the years. It was all a lot of emotionally heavy stuff, and I spent about a week writing a response to it, but I got really dissatisfied with my response and discarded it, and decided to put it off till I could think of a better way to respond, which so far, I haven't, but at this point, I think Ive procrastinated too long and need to write something. So I texted him and apologized for brushing him off and promised to write a more complete response.

I forsee myself taking a few days for this and sending whatever I have, even if I want to discard it afterwards

I would consider us to be pretty good friends still, though we don't often have much time to stay in contact, but that's partly because I tend to be the more reclusive one, I barely talk to anyone I know still in or from Texas anymore, and least not proactively, I mostly just respond when I am contacted by one of them. For a number of years, whenever I would go back to visit, while all of my other friends might have been too busy with their own families and children and whatnot, me, thorax and this guy would frequently get together during those trips. But now he's in Virginia, working in D.C., and the last time I was in Texas for Thanksgiving, I didn't get to meet up with any of my old friends, because having kids tends to do that, and this guy is in Virginia right now. While It makes trips to Texas a little less exciting, I think it's better for this guy ... at least I hope so.

I'm not sure if he's taken any trips back to Texas since moving to Virginia honestly, I think he's basically trying to figuratively hit the reset button on his life in Virginia since his life in Texas kind of floundered, and in some ways, he feels like it was sort of a mistake to try and move back to Texas and settle there for as long as he did, since it really only made him feel more isolated and stagnant than it did when he moved to Ohio.

Hell he even frequently told me he felt like his life had essentially become like that show Bojack Horseman after moving back to Texas, which I think is why he was kind of obsessed with it for a while.

yeah, this guy kinda is a real life bojack Horseman, at least in the sense that he's had enough career success in his life to be considered more well to do than many his own age, and a lot earlier in life too, and yet tend to suffer from a lot of depression and dissatisfaction with his life despite that success. I mean, this friend of mine has an MBA and had a fairly successful job in the financial sector, and by the time he left Texas, he already owned a big house there in a fairly upper-middle class neighborhood on San Antonio's north side. Of course, he always said he didn't really want a house, but it's jus "what you're supposed to do at this point" just another life milestone that he accomplished just to be normal despite having no real desire to accomplish it. So he finds himself basically living alone in a big empty house with more space than he knows what to do with, occasionally lending out one of the spare bedrooms to other people. So basically, like Bojack Horseman.

I wouldn't be surprised if his fursona was a horse, honestly

I hope he can eventually get out of his funk in life, but honestly I think it might end up being an uphill battle, sometimes I think the core of his problem most of the time Ive known him is that it seems like he's never treated himself like he ever deserved to pursue any passions in life. I mean, he told me that the entire reason why he ever persued a career in business was because, and I paraphrase "of the four career paths you're supposed to purse in college (doctor, lawyer, engineer or accountant) accounting seemed like the one that would be the easiest for me" and then later expressed regrets that he didn't bother to persue a degree in biology or a PhD in biology cause that is a subject he actually had interests in, perhaps enough to consider it a passion.

So even if he does have a new job now, it's still one rooted in the same skills he's built up for himself in school and in the decade after he got his MBA. I guess since now he's not quite so focused on just trying to hit the milestones in his life that he's "supposed" to hit (he moved back into a small apartment in Virginia rather than try to find a new house to buy) perhaps he can find some other way to live his life that won't lwave him so constantly empty and isolated.

Course, I think it could help him to just try and see a therapist for depression, as so far, as far as I heard, he finds it kind of hard to find the motivation to go out and meet people and try to make new friends. That's something that's been on my mind when writing my response, what do I tell him to encourage him and give him motivation?

hmmm, i think a therapist would do him a world of good. like, it seems like a path for him would be to rediscover his own self-love and to explore the things he loves himself. It's not an easy path, but i feel that he has lived so much in the path that was set for him, that he hasn't discovered how to find his own way.

it's kinda difficult for me to suggest ideas, simply because i don't know him, and a lot of my ideas are sorta tailored towards the person in question. but my end goal would be to try and have him rediscover what he loves to do. or even something as simple as finding something that interests him on a purely curiousity level. but i trust you to find a way to speak with him

I've found myself a bit more 'goal oriented'. I busted my hand a couple of months ago out of frustration living at home. A few days later I met up with an old friend who wanted to see the city during during Mardi Gras season and after parting from him and his company made my way back to my car through the mostly empty square of the old French Quarter, where I was accosted by a fortune teller. I feel at home around psychonauts so I sat down with him in front of Saint Andrew's church.

We talked for a while and he sussed out that whatever I'm going through is okay, even if I feel crazy and damaged. He said that I want to have goals and connected it with the notion of the Sacred Masculine; additionally, he hinted that I should be okay with wanting to express myself sexually (this time, I don't think the guy had a crush on me--though he did give me his number).

Of course, I took all of this with a grain of salt but allowed it also to work on me in the way that intuition works. I haven't made any "conscious resolutions" but I recognize opportunities when they come my way. I've been taking skill development more seriously. I'm trying to get certified in math and am focusing on Spanish and also Chinese, and I've joined a philosophy reading group (my study habits in college weren't the best), so it feels a little like I'm in school and working. Additionally I've got a couple "creative" things I'm doing, but I don't like to talk about those before there are tangibles.

It's alright, I was really just explaining my perspective on this. I think his biggest problem is how much he seems to beat himself up all the time and feel guilty about a lot of things, but tge kicker is that he seems to feel guilty for feeling guilty most of all. He'll describe times when he feels like he has no motivation to leave the house and go out and find something to do other than what he always does or go find people to meet, and then ends up hating himself for undermining his own happiness. He can be really depressive, and extremely self conflicted, which I think just makes him more depressive. Like I said though, I hope this figurative reset hes trying to pull off works, but at the same time, habits can be hard to break and I sometimes worry that he will beat himself for not being able to change as fast as he would like to.

And in fairness, it can be very hard to tell when I'm being serious about something, but such is the price I pay for satirical deadpan.

It sucks, though. It's the first injury I've had that's probably going to affect me for the rest of my life. It feels weird, like a form of death. And I did it to myself, dude. I'm a psycho. Life is some tapestry.

definitely fooled me! i thought you were just having a laugh with me, and given that i am a fighter, thought it was just a way to make a nod to me. sorry i didn't take your injury seriously dude :PP

hey man, it will be alright. It may affect you a little bit, but it will heal, and you will survive.

it's actually interesting, because it reminds me of a real conditioning training that i have read about for kung fu training. They would purposefully break your knuckles and then have it heal in such a way to be more durable while punching. Then after it heals, you would practice punching non-stop with that hand until it fractured again, and then heal it again. and just repeat like that.

your punch would be super deadly.however they recommend using your off hand, because it's basically unusable for anything else other than punching for the rest of your life.

but you didn't go that far, so i wouldn't worry too much about it dude

I just wonder if trying to say "uf you feel overwhelmed by social phobia or social anxiety and thus feel drained of motivation by it, tell yourself it's okay to feel like that and as frustrating and depressing such things can seem, tell yourself it's okay and that's it's all just a practical problem".

I sometimes wonder though if it is a matter of social phobia or just a matter of depression. Like, he's often talked to me about feeling like he's got no passion in life, and oftentimes wonders how people find any sort of passion in life, and I sometimes wonder if that means he's depressed, but then on the other hand, he did once express regret that he had majored in accounting and not biology, which makes me wonder if he does in fact have potential passions and is basically just lying to himself, as if he won't accept that he has any passions, if they are not the "correct" passions, or if he won't recognize them as passions if they don't seem to overwhelmingly drive him in the directions in life that they would for other people. I  mean, I can list a lot of things he has interest in based on frequent topics of conversation we have had over the years, primarily things like critically acclaimed movies (he's certainly a bit of a movie buff) as well as music, and he finds religious philosophy pretty interesting as well, and he likes to talk about science topics quite a bit, he's big into hobby gaming and used to like going to game stores for tcg tournaments with some of our other mutual friends when we all still lived in San Antonio. I think it's pretty obvious that he does have a lot of interest, and he's far less fickle than me when it comes to these things. And yet ... it seems like he thinks he has no passions in life, which just makes me wonder if it's some form of denial.

>>927785
i can believe it is a bit of both. i maybe reading too much into it, but it seems to me that he grew up in a situation where going into accounting and these "expected" directions gave him the idea to follow what he believed were passions, even if they weren't. and because of that he has fooled himself into believing that he has accomplished those parts, but then the reality hit of how hollow that victory was for him. I don't doubt that he has passion, and i believe they are real, but he's probably so used to disconnect those passions with what he believes are the real paths in life, that he doesn't acknowledge that they are ways for him to find himself and his happiness again.

it's a messy process, but a lot of social pressure and expectations can force that seperation of actual desire for what is good for the self, and what is expected for them to do

That's pretty similar to what I thought for a long time, but it also doesn't really make much sense ... or at least there seems to be some part of the picture missing here. As far as I can tell, from the few times I met and talked to his parents, I don't get the idea that he was raised in such a way to see his interest as "improper" or "not legitimate" like, I think his parents always come off as the kind of people who would have encouraged him to purse any path in life, so long as it made him happy, and like, his Dad once joked about how he can make himself feel guilty about anything (and say it in such a way that made it seem like he was trying not to let it show that this habit was really concerning to him). So I don't know how my friend got it into his head that his interest couldn't be "real" passions or how he got it in his head that he was "supposed" to purse a more traditional and more traditionally respectable career in college.

I think if I understood that, then maybe I could better figure out the best thing to say that might change his attitude and maybe help motivate him out of fear of pursuing his own passions as passions instead of just "silly hobbies" (my words, not his)

it may not have been his parents, but rather other family, or maybe school and media at the time influencing what he thought. or maybe this friend of yours had a way of internalizing things to extremes, and the parents were not even aware of it. And parents can seem different when other people are around. i don't know, but i can believe a lot of different things.

the only thing that i have is just how you describe him to me. and it seems that he has believed life is best lived in one way, but his heart and mind do not agree. causing a dissonance

I got my Switch a little over two months ago, but I got wrapped up in tons of shit and had Spiderman and Let's Go to play. But yeh, back to it and it's ingenious.

And Hariet appeals to my enjoyment of drawing lady villains, so that probably helped

Perhaps, perhaps his perspective has changed in the past few years. I don't really know how he thinks about it anymore. Before he left for Virginia, we had a conversation over DMs where he expressed that he felt like the entire past decade of his life was a mistake, so I don't know. I need to reread the content of that email. I'm just considering the possibility that some of his ways of thinking in the past had become habitual and that that might mean he could fall back into them.

I loved that movie when it first came out. I saw it with a bunch of my friends, and the whole "Be Prepared" song made us laugh so hard we rewatched it in every dubbed language available on the DVD.

Hurrr hurr vurry funny.
But actually, good news! WHile my art classes end next week (for now), I just sold a bunch of introductory courses a la the one I did back in February. So in July and September, I'll be doing two, and hopefully attract more students.

hmmm, well i definitely would do a bit of content analysis, and just talk with him some more to really get more of an idea. I do honestly believe that regardless, perhaps time with a therapist will do him good. but that's something you'll just have to find out.

i'm sorry you have to concern yourself so much about this though, it doesn't sound like it's a very light subject matter at all

>>927811
ooooh way oooooh!!! pidgey pidgey!!!

that movie was freaking hilarious! i adored it so much. and Be prepared was a blast! Horns to Open bottles! Horns to HOld my Keys! Horns that when you turn them right,they help me turn on me TV

also the Pull the lever kronk moment is great!

AN AVALANCHE IS COMIN AND I DO NOT FEEL PREPARED!

That is fantastic news! I am so happy for you dude! July and September are gonna rock!

The most concerning part about the content of this email, while not being that depressing or even all that negative is that it's like he's confessing that he has feelings for me.

Which just makes replying to this all the more complicated.

He says stuff like how, looking back on the past 20 years, he sees me as the friend of his he identifies with most and that's why in retrospect he's considers me to be the best friend he ever had, as he sees a lot of himself in me and a lot of me in himself,  and as such, he thinks about me a lot, despite the fact he rarely reaches out to anyone to talk these days. This email is clearly an attempt to reconnect to me and Thorax, and the fact it comes off as a confession of feelings just makes it so much more complicated ...

Yea... Think i'm gonna delay the move until spring is well underway. I don't like my odds in my post-wreck sentra vs. colorado blizzards.

I got no projects, and i've never had spaghetti sauce on rice. I've just been playin games and watching anime and trying to save money and get my car as rockies-ready as i can.
