@Gamecubed Yeah, talking can really help! I had a similar thing happen recently, except with anxiety instead of depression! You don't have to tell the world, but telling one person can make all the difference!

Absolutely. If anyone reading this is going through a similar situation, definitely find someone to talk to. Not everyone is going to get it, but when you find the right person who actually understands and is supportive, it makes all the difference. My friend had crippling depression and was in a far worse place than I am currently, but she still gave me some excellent advice and it's been quite helpful.

There's a stigma to depression and anxiety too, and that makes it a lot harder to talk to people about. I'm personally a little embarrassed about it, because before this I was a proud, confident and fearless person. I still am, it' just that behind closed doors I tend hit these low valleys quite often. I think when you're a naturally proud person, it's a blow to your ego when you realize that there something wrong, but it's reassuring when someone gets it. Despite depression and anxiety being the most common mental illnesses in the world, you're going to always have someone saying "get over it".

Yep yep, I will also recommend that having someone to talk to is the best way through any sort of troubles... being able to talk to someone about it is extremely, extremely helpful. :) I know from experience; I've been both the person who needed to talk to someone and I've been the listener before. :)

I truly have to appreciate my grandparents and I love how the timing is just perfect.

I will be moving into my own place this August, which has a ton of expenses. Furniture, cleaning supplies, among other things, had me very concerned about whether or no this was going to work out.

My grandparents are downsizing so they can move into a smaller house, and they are giving me their extra furniture. My grandfather does a lot of wood work, so that accounts for some of the extras.

Right now, I have two side tables, a coffee table, a dresser, a desk that could double as an end table, and a love seat, all thanks to my grandparents. I'm so happy!

@brewsky: Congrats on you own place. :D Just a tip though thrift stores and garage sales are good places to find good cheap furniture as well as stuff like dishes silverware etc.

I went to a neighborhood yard sale today. One guy sold me a Sega Genesis with two first party controllers, two third party controllers, Golden Axe, and a 32x expansion for $3, (The system itself seems to be working, but I'm missing some cables, and while I can run video through the 32x, I get sound but no video. In going to pick up an AV cable later.) A nice clear plastic Gameboy Color for $3, a nice clear plastic Gameboy Advance for $3, Pokemon Pinball for $1, Pokemon Trading Card game for $1, and, the best deal of the day, a golden Majora's Mask cart for $1... with a holographic label! After countless days of yard saling and coming back with nothing, this is a nice change! I feel kind if bad for the guy who sold this stuff to me though...

Edit: I got a new cable and the Genesis works great!

That sounds AWESOME! I wish there were more yard sales here so I could buy all that stuff.

Wow, just wow.

I just watched the past two episodes of 24 and they were simply incredible. I like the 12 episode format compared to 24, but it's a shame that there are only three episodes left in the season (and quite possibly, the show. Haven't heard anything, yet). More seasons, please! :)

I get the house to myself tomorrow (or, I guess, today, since it's past midnight here now). That never happens. I usually have to work, but not tomorrow! Laundry, Netflix and researching what my next laptop should be.
And our neighbour is moving away since her husband died and she's trying to get rid of some of the stuff so they don't have to pack away as much. She's pretty much giving us this massive entertainment centre that will take up the length of the rec-room wall and an awesome reclining chair. I'm also going over tomorrow to pick out some books since her husband was an avid reader and they have a room full of his books. Best neighbours we've ever had, by far.

@brewsky, do you mean 24: Live Another Day? I LOVE that. I haven't been able to keep up with it as much as I want to, but I try to catch it when I can. I'm usually at work when it's on, so my mom watches it and then tells me what happened.
I've heard rumours about there being a Kate Morgan spin-off being considered. Those are just rumours though. I'd totally support that. Yvonne Strahovski is awesome.

@Gamecubed The producers said they were open to Yvonne Strahovski taking the place of Kiefer Sutherland. But if they're going to make more seasons, I think Sutherland is going to stick with it a little while longer. It depends on how long we have to wait until the next one, though....if there is one.

it's like I can't obey myself and end saying or doing the oposite of what I wanted... guess I'll never learn.... T_T
