I don't know for 100% certain, but I think I just saw someone steal a dog. So yeah, my faith in human decency has gone down a lot... It could of been mine if I was walking a little bit faster as well.

I recently caved in and decided to book a doctors appointment in regards to anti-depressants. I've purposefully avoided them in the past, not exactly comfortable with the idea of drugging myself for the illusion of happiness. But given that in my current state i'm just wasting away, growing ever more embittered at everything, unable to rev up that motivation to do something meaningful with myself, I think they could help give me that extra 'umph', y'know?

In fact the more I think about it, this might turn out to be kind of a good thing for me in the end. But at the same time I can't help but be a little disappointed in myself for not being able to solve my problems on my own two feet. I know this is kind of an odd place to post all this personal guff, but hey, it gets it out of the system.

What a freakin' tool, eh?

Despite my angst-y whining, i'm twenty years old. Really should be getting my act together at this age, but hey-ho. I have heard various things about anti-depressants just making things worse, but very few have elaborated on why that's the case. If its not too much to ask, would you care to tell why they didn't work out for you? If you don't want to share that's perfectly understandable.

@SqueakyTheBone it's a shame to hear about that. I've come close to asking about anti-depressants a few times in my life, except I just kind of roughed it out. I figured that it wasn't so much an illusion of happiness, but that my life was really starting to suffer with the lack of sleep and the malnutrition from being too meh to eat. I hope they work out for you!

always thought I'd change to Gyarados after I turned 20 but hey, this is more fitting I guess. (also somebody registered under the original Magikarp name and I can't get back to it anymore orz)

@CanisWolfred I see. Apologies for bringing it up, but thanks for sharing. I'll have to give it some more serious thought.

@Magikarp I'm glad things (presumably) worked out for you! I wish I had the strength to tough these things out, but my mindset is too weak in that regard. Thanks for the kind words.

I don't really want to go into details, but I had a friend which I haven't talked to in about a year and we were both in the same crappy long-term situation for a few years. Just saw a post of his on Facebook, and it looks like he's doing much better than me. I was already feeling pretty depressed today, so that didn't really help...

Man I hate Facebook.

I'm going to need to take a break from Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor Overclocked for at least a few days because of how depressing I'm finding it. I was hoping to beat it before the release of Animal Crossing: New Leaf but now I wish I had that game already. Then I could alternate between an RPG with a heavy story and relaxing in the tranquil world of Animal Crossing.

I stumbled across a certain user's artist page on a certain website, and saw his most recent upload. And it looked amazing! I had seen this user's DeviantArt page last year, and their art was decent, but that pick was on a whole other level! I thought, "Hey, if this guy could dedicate himself and start making kick@$$ pics like that, perhaps there's some hope for me? Maybe I just seriously need to dedicate myself and keep up with the drawing. Maybe even reinvent my art style. I just need to believe and keep at it! Surely someday I'll be as good as him!" I got so motivated, I was about ready to go off and start drawing like hell!

...then I scrolled down the page, read the description, and found out he didn't draw it. It was a commission from another artist, who had been doing art since he could hold a pencil. I then went to the Deviant Art page of that certain user again, and found that while he had improved a little, he still wasn't near the level of the guy who drew his commission. All of the enthusiasm I had drained out of me all at once, and now I don't feel like drawing anything...

I just posted about this in Weirdness of the Day, but basically, earlier today I said something really stupid/awkward/just-not-like-me, all because I'm frustrated that I don't have a girlfriend.
Do you want to hear my whole story about how I don't have a girlfriend or not?

Hurray, now I don't have to double post!

I'm getting so desperate to find a good forum of a certain nature, I think I've resorted to stalking...maybe I should just bite the bullet and join one already...or maybe I should just give up...

@Canis What do you mean by "find a good forum"?
Also, if there's one thing I've learned in my life struggles, is that no one should ever give up, no matter the circumstances.

Just to throw in my own two cents regarding anti-depressents, I can't tell you how many times I've seen commercials for them and the side effects included, "May cause thoughts of suicide." Talk about just making things worse...

So my own disappointment today is I went to the dentist, and they said that my premolars are all coming in wrong and one is starting to pop through. So now my parents are debating whether to have them cut out soon (as in slicing through my gums), or just wait until things start hurting before having them taken out. It's not bothering me too much now, but the fact is going to be looming over my head during the next few weeks...

Avian fact of the week: The Moa, an extinct relative of ostrichs and emus that inhabited New Zealand, was the tallest bird that ever lived at 12 ft tall (3.6 m). It was also the only known bird to have no wing structure.

@canis good luck trying other forums, most forums now have awful people.

I've joined, like 20 forums over the past 3 years. Trust me, I know that all too well...that's why I'm so afraid to join any and trying various different methods to find a good one. It doesn't help that the particular type of forums I'm looking for tend to have low populations, except for one site that's simply too massive (and is probably where everyone's going)...I don't have many choices from what I've found so far...
