i wanna tongue kiss an anime girl. why did man invent cute anime girls? we know they'll never exist in real life so we can never kiss them or fall in love with them. why create something so beautiful that's always out of reach? is it masochism? I hope when I die I go to heaven and God gives me a cute anime gf to hang out with. I guess if I was in heaven I'd say hi to my grandma and the rest of my dead relatives. pretty selfish of me to immediately think of anime pussy the minute I die. ya I should say hi to family first. I guess im an atheist so I dont fully believe in heaven but I like to leave a little room for imagination and wishful thinking. it's unhealthy to not allow a few fantasies to slip in your mind here and there.

MBTI is all shit that typically only becomes apparent if you talk to somebody for an extended period of time. Improving your social interactions can be improved by reading others, but focusing too hard on systematizing all of your interactions could make you seem detached or pretentious if you go about it the wrong way. Don't overthink it, just be nice and improve yourself.

This was something I submitted to university a few years ago, very blatantly plagiarising Chekov's "The Student". My teacher had no clue, which was good for me but doesn't reflect very well on her.
>The air smelled of winter. The frost seeped through his lungs as he took each vital breath. The wind passed by as a presence, pushing past him in a rush, whistling through the branch beside him, shaking the ice from its leaves. The cold brought him to tremble, a sharp and biting force of nature. The tremble in his father's hands the last goodbye they shared. The cold brought such a weakness to even a man as young as this. You cannot reason with a breeze, explain to it your suffering and hope for respite in return. He could hear movement nearby, either something alive or leaves stirred by the breeze.
>His numb fingers clutched a basket as they quivered, half-full of what had left to gather, cursing as he forced himself through the penetrative wind. He wondered if this same accursed wind blew in past days of history. Had a wind such as this, on this same wretched day, blown through hand and throat of those before him? Had a wind such as this soured the mood of a peasant long dead? Had a wind such as this agitated a great general in wartime, who directed his agitation towards a township he hadn't planned on razing?
>A wisp of white smoke from a chimney marked his destination, as the sun took its leave behind Otuken. The mountain was said to be sacred, though the reason for its sacrality was never explained to him. Its looming shadow in pursuit of him as he fought to soak in the few remaining rays of sunshine before the cruel night swept in again.
>He had arrived. Beyond a narrow treeline of birch and aspen, his mother's home stood with a frail dignity, its chimney emerging tall from its thatched roof. The drying racks had not seen use since two summers ago. A fisherman no longer lived here.
He entered, a familiar smell greeted him. His mother believed her tea drinking was the cause of her long life. A figure between old jars of kompot. He explained the poor harvest. 'Na Boga nadesya, a sam ne ploshay', hope for God's help, but rely on yourself. She said that more often lately. She took the basket from his hand. A soup would keep them warm. The fire crackled in the stove.
>The dark swallowed the world, and the wind sung. The sound of a winter night, like a wolf howling at the door, desperate to pervade whatever warmth resound within, for no reason but its very nature. He'd known stories of hauntings but now understood the truth behind them. Spring would surely come.

"Money disappears, it becomes nothing. And thus all these things which seem to be real and upon which we can rely, are in fact of secondary importance. All human things, all things we can invent and create are finite. So too all human religious experiences are finite. They show only one aspect of reality, because our limited being understands only some parts, some elements. Only God is infinite and through him, his Word too is universal and knows no end. Only the Word of God is the foundation of all reality, stable like heaven. Therefore we must change our concept of reality. A realist is one who recognizes that the Word of God - this reality that appears so weak - is in fact the foundation of everything."

"I'm going to rape her. I am seriously going to rape her.", John declared to himself. His female professor continued to drone on and on about feminist queer theory. John's eye twitched every time the professor mentioned white male privilege.

"Alright class, it is time to put my words into action. All male students please line up in front of the class where you will pay for your historical privilege." Confused, all of the men slowly got up out of their seats and walked to the front of the lecture hall. As if on que after all the men were lined up, a parade of giant black men began waltzing in through the hall entrance. Each black man was carrying a dog leash, and a look of lust in their eye.

Sensing his asshole was in danger, John jolted to action. He removed the handgun he was conceal carrying from his side, an action he had practiced countless times, and aimed at the professor. But before he could take fire, all of the black men as if instinctively drew their own firearms and began shooting aimlessly into the lecture hall. All hell broke loose.

All I ever could wish for is a demise of this sad joke of a state in a bath of olive green. The full, roaring noise of tanks driving past the parliament and governmental buildings, securing key positions and putting the wretched, damnable career politicians out of commission, maybe softly, maybe with lead. All the inner contradictions that have been dammed up are going to need a massive catharsis to be resolved. There is no other way.

I can't wait to get my own apartment and leave-- I'll be free then. I'll be able to masturbate at all hours, take a shower or a shit without a fucking neighbor listening and complaining it's 3 am, I'll be able to sleep and not be woken up by anybody. It'll be cathartic, even more for others since I won't be around to hurt anyone with my words. I firmly believe I'll be happier than I ever was. I sometimes think about my old apartment, when I lived in my own for a year. I was depressed and imprisoned, indeed, but when I look back, I don't believe there was a time I was freer my life than when I was masturbating and crying in a 12 square meters prison. I'll be free with a new apartment, I know it. I'll be free then.

5 years neet here. I kinda gave up after uni because i put all my hope-eggs into one basket and it all crashed. I thought that there could be people with similar experience but it was just a HS on steroids. I hated every second of it because the field was boring to me but i didnt know what else to pick or switch to . Somehow I did graduate even with academic leave. I think my problem is a bit bigger than that. I feel like my life is completely meaningless. I dont want for others to choose what i should do but i cant seem to realize what i want to do on my own. I just dont know as the answer doesnt come to me in a clear way. Even now, im living at parents place and i feel the pressure to move out, find a job and start living on my own in general sense. However i see that all this change require much more strength than i have. I just dont know and feel completely disconnected from dreams, goals and energy despite it sounding like an excuse. Im not even talking about relationships in general, never had a slightest experience in that area so even if i'd somehow manage to acquire it, im just asking to be tricked, used or cheated due to my inexperience. Sometimes i do wonder why i continue living in this disconnected state but then i remember that im a pathetic coward who couldnt even kill himself and just continue tormenting others by his existence. Maybe it would put parents and brother at ease.
I dont know why i bother writing this in the first place but maybe that eases the pain a bit.

The niggers were out of control. Each and every one was instinctively firing their firearms into the lecture hall. John ducked just in time to watch a bullet fly past where his head just was, implanting into the eye of the girl sitting behind him. Interestingly enough, despite the active gun violence, every female in the room had the expression on her face that read "I don't see anything happening here". Many even had looks of lust for the black kings indiscriminately killing.

John began crawling through the labyrinth of corpses, with the occasional live victim being raped by a black man, desperately looking for the hall exit. The sounds of bullets began to wane off after the blacks lost interest in shooting their guns and switched to gangbanging the professor. Although, it seemed that the liberal arts professor was enjoying this.

Right as John had crawled to the door and was reaching for the handle, he felt a monkey-like hand grab his foot.

"Ay where this nigga think he going"

John's blood turned to ice as the negro began dragging him along the floor. John knew that pleading would be of no use, the chimp was already smacking his lips, hungry for his meal. John watched in horror as he was slowly dragged back to the negro orgy nest. John snapped out of his panic and his instincts kicked in.

"I've been preparing to kill niggers my entire life".

Forlorn. Null. It was so forlorn and null that Jaeicho felt there should be a new word to describe it. Nullorninity. Jaeicho thought himself very clever, seated in his tiny boat in a lake that was pale and empty and endless. The fishing rod he held was as still as the water’s surface, and in fact he couldn’t remember a time when it wasn’t. How long had he been out here? Well, Jaeicho’s mind was brilliant and did not waste time reflecting on trivial matters like that. There were more important things to concern himself over. Such as, what was available for him to eat, currently? He realized that, if he couldn’t remember a time when his fishing rod was useful, then he must have been out here a very long time. And if Jaeicho had been here all this time without so much a scrap of food, surely he was fine to go a little longer. So that problem is resolved. Jaeicho was clever like that.
“I’m quite good at things.” commented the insufferable puffer. Rude, that statement was supposed to be in Jaeicho’s thoughts. The ridiculous puffer was such a bad, unimportant, and unmemorable thing that it wrapped around back to being interesting, important, and memorable. The dastardly puffer was so uncouth that it didn’t even care that it wasn’t supposed to be capable of floating in the air, but there it was, like a little spiky ball of frustration. Jaeicho considered batting it away with his hand, but changed his mind, worried by the prospect of retaliation.
“You aren’t supposed to be here. And I don’t like you very much.” the two of them glared at one another. The situation was quite upsetting. But in that moment that Jaeicho’s gaze left the water, so it was that the surface broke, but only gently. An entity surfaced from the lake that was pale and empty and endless, and in fact she was an old friend of Jaeicho’s. Which was odd, considering the pair of them had never met until now. Jaeicho reasoned this was called “charisma”. With a very long neck she brought her eyeless face to glance at them without vision.
“What’s all the negativity?” She asked without a mouth. Jaeicho pointed at the obnoxious puffer.
“He started it and no one invited him!” cried the intolerable puffer. The friend tilted her head to listen without ears.
“It’s always just best to leave a bad place.” And so it was that the friend raised a baker’s dozen of arms from the water, grasping Jaeicho without hands. Jaeicho wasn’t all that offended by this, he had begun to grow tired of the nullorninity. And then, he was pulled below the lake that was pale and empty and endless. If only he could have held on to his fishing rod. But then, he had never remembered a time where it wasn’t completely still, so he wasn’t upset over losing it after all. Jaeicho was clever like this.

Finding what you like can only happen if you free up space in your life for it to occur. If you distract yourself 24/7 by playing video games, watching anime, etc. Then of course you're never going to find what you enjoy. You have to actually go outside your comfort zone to discover what you like.
Of course this is hard, which is actually the same issue 99% of people have. The only difference is that when the people you see as successful were young they were forced outside of their comfort zone by their parents and learned to socialize while you were likely cocooned by your parents.
The benefit of this is that if you can overcome your social anxieties in adulthood that opens up the pathway to overcome other anxieties and become more successful than the jock who was having the time of his life in highschool only to be destroyed by the responsibilities of life and having to compare his current failures with his previously carefree existence.

I reflected on my kino psychotic break years today and came to the late revelation that stress was a necessary ingredient for transcendence. Cursory comparisons to shamanic traditions and coming of age rituals involving subjecting the individual to voluntary stress like fasting, isolation, and chemistry altering substances followed. Our era is incapable of producing great works of art because we do not possess enough stress in our lives. And if we do, we are force fed drugs to dull stress's awakening potential. Unless we stop the war on stress and reject tranquility we will never make an important cultural mark again.

Winter fell with a muted, static silence on the Hollow Forest near a long-abandoned superfund site in what used to be Virginia. The Hollow Forest had been named as such some time ago because of the unique nature of the groundwater pollution nearby, which made its way into the trees by way of their roots, killed them, and induced rot from the inside out, which eventually led to the large hollows in the trunks developing not long before the rest of the state cleared out for not-too-dissimilar reasons. So even though no one had been around to call it the Hollow Forest in several years, some people out-of-state knew about it, so the name was as official of one as it was going to get.

The year's winter started out particularly harsh, with what might have been called a "wintery mix" if it had been reported on on the weather channel falling heavily from slightly yellowed grey clouds onto the forest, filling the husks of the trees with a melange of various states of water. The temperature stayed consistent for a time, then warmed slightly, which allowed for the ice inside the trees to go to slush as it was occasionally supplemented by further rainfall. No animals came near enough to the forest to make use of the potentially cleaner water the hollows would afford them, so they sat untouched for weeks until January brought with it a bitter cold, which started to refreeze the pools that had formed inside the trunks. Dutifully following the rules that govern it, the water expanded as it froze, in part rising out of the trunks in newly solidified pillars, but also bursting the seams of the hollows from within, cracking through what remained of the dead and half-alive wood. Most of the trees were sufficiently decomposed that the ice met with little to no resistence, quickly cracking through the facade of the trees' former healthy selves and eventually felling all parties involved when the structure became too damaged to hold up the weight of the water. Some, however, had a recent enough hold on life that the ice wasn't easily able to locate the path of least resistence, and held their shape for some time longer as the water froze. Eventually, though, time enough had passed that these more stubborn trunks could no longer hold on, and they started to fall, one after the next, with thunderous cracks as the tension that had been building up in the trunks found release. Hour upon hour, more of the remaining trunks could no longer hold on, and the Hollow Forest played its own cannonfire as it passed.

Yes, my aim is to write like Pynchon; nay, to BE Pynchon. And be Pynchon I shall, O my brothers and sisters. Let us embark on this grand road of discovery together so that we may ALL be Pynchons.

Insane you say? Impossible? Why, take that crap and shove it up your snatch! Being Pynchon is hard, but hardness is different from impossibility. Of course, one cannot simply replicate Pynchon, but one can aim for that same level of intense condensation that characterizes his prose. First, we must understand what exactly MAKES Pynchon Pynchon. And I don't mean just a namby pamby analysis of symbols and references like a dried-out, withered, old cunt of a lit scholar. I mean matching voice for voice, detail for detail, image for image, tone for tone -- an EXCAVATION of Pynchon. I say we shovel up bones, set alight old tomes, and READ READ READ.

Sadler is great for beginners generally, and this is a mostly good list. That said: Boethius is an unconventional choice to start with, Lucretius might be a decent replacement. Mary Wollstonecraft being on there is a meme, plainly put. He wanted to put a woman on there I suppose, but there is no reason that someone trying to get their footing in philosophy should spend time on that sort of text right now. It will be there later, and will be no easier or harder than if you had started with it. Its utility is extremely marginal for a beginner, and even if you want to read things on rights/political philosophy, you'd be better served with Hobbes or Rousseau. Otherwise, very good selection.

i can't sleep. or i don't want to sleep. but i just can't wake up either
once i'm asleep, waking up is almost physically impossible
once i'm awake, sleeping is nowhere to be found
some nights, i admit, i'm obsessed with my phone and can't put it down
but even on the nights i have a shred of self control and am not drawn to the blue light i toss and turn for hours
and it's not just sleep i can't acheive, a peace of mind is out of my grasp as well
i have a job that pays, but even when i see my bank account go up it does not alleviate the stress
i get so stressed on the job that it actually prevents me for doing work properly
i can't concentrate and do what needs to be done
and it loops
i live for my days off so i can do no work without the guilt
i don't fear losing my job, as even if that happened i wouldn't feel so bad
i fear the confrontation that may occur in which i must justify my lack of work ethic some days
i a department that's understaffed and overworked, i shouldn't feel guilt for trying my hardest
yet the level of work prevents me from trying my hardest all the time

i've spent over 2000 hours on a single video game
i've gotten quite good at it, but there are others much better than i'll ever be
there's a creative aspect to the game as well in which i find great joy
but also a sense of dread crops up when i don't feel as creative as i could be

this feeling, maybe cognitive dissonance of sort, has haunted me my whole life
i did well in school, in math and english and physics, etc
but i always felt i had this creative side which i could never express
my brother was the creative one, or so thought my family and friends
but in my mind, i was more creative but i could never show it

always, one day, i would think, i'll be able to show the whole world how creative i can be
but when i try to be creative i'm just appalled at what i produce
i think that maybe i'm really not creative, and this kills me more than anything else
am i just a boring person?
i can't imagine being a boring person would be a life worth living

i have imagined so many different outcomes for my life, almost all an outcome where i get to produce art in some form
and maybe that's why i can't imagine a life working an office job for the good years of my adulthood
a life stuck in a capitalist modern society does not suit me

all the jobs i've had so far i've enjoyed at first, i quick;y excelled at them and gained a sense of accomplishment
but as time goes by, around the one year mark, i grow entirely dissatifies with my work
i lose any enthusiasm i may have had, and my work suffers, and i lose more enthusiasm, and my work suffers...
and this may not me so bad, but this lack of enthusiasm enevitably leaks it's way into other aspects of my life

and here comes the biggest problem, maybe
after i've written all this, i begin to doubt myself
is this how i actually feel, or have i made it all up
then i think and, yeah, maybe this is how i feel
but i quickly forget about in anyways

Sitting at the main gun of a Cruiser Semi Truck had taken its toll on the old man, both physically and mentally, and perhaps even spiritually, as if the unflinching bite of the Australian sun and piercing arid winds of the Central Ghost-Plains had writhed into him and snatched a sliver of his very soul to be forever kept a guest of the ever shifting amalgamate of red dirt, cloudless skies. and... whatever else was out there.
His sunburnt, parched skin, mottled with green-brown, as typical of the orcs of Italian descent, off of his lean frame, the rigors of aging gradually beginning to diminish the physique of a man whose job involves fighting for their life, leaving him with a stooped spine, an attribute which he was oft to blame on leaning over a Bren gun for the better part pf his adult life.
The eyes, however, they were not sundered one bit by age. A steely azure, those were the eyes of a man who could, and had, shot down everything from Fly-Boy helicopters, to the many limbed Arthro-Drakes, to even the fearsome Empty Lords of the deepest desert roads.

Middlebrow, dull people think that Marxism and liberalism are the opposite of each other. They could not be more wrong. Marxism is simply an extension of liberalism. Marxism starts with the same liberal presuppositions.
Marxism and classical liberalism both start with assumptions of liberating the individual from the """oppression""" of traditional hierarchies and social structures, both are revolutionary, nominalist, secular, rationalist, anti-monarchirst, and anti-aristocratic. Both have equality as their telos.

Focus on expression, not impressions. Seriously. Ultimately it's easier, but you will also come off as a more memorable person to everyone. You'll be one of the few guys with an actual personality. It's inevitable that some poeple will dislike you, but it's impossible to be loved by some without being hated by others. The only alternative, via impressionism, is being considered warmly, but without great strength, by everyone. No one will particularly hate you or love you. TL;DR be who you are, and you'll pretty much be better off for it in every way, you'll feel like a real person too rather than a cog trying to to make impressions and calculate people's personalities.

This thought has entered and left my mind in waves. In the city, everything reflects my physical being. The storefronts, coffee shops, office buildings, the constant stream of vehicles and glass walkways. And I am unnerved by it, constant reminder of the flaws and faults of my body, I escape to the woods and the small towns, at least in the judgemental looks of other people there has to be some honesty to it.
But to the city again; there is nothing but repulsiveness to be reflected. The cider whales' waddling gait, the rail thin addicts with their nervous gazes, the hordes of day drinking university students, hurling insults and crude gestures to anyone unlucky enough to pass by. A maze of mirrors where nobody reflects upon themselves.

Your gender. Your identity. An amalgamation of me -isms. A low pressure system. Hectares of ripe flood plains. The canvass of a semi-conscious/unconscious being having archives of past impressions at its fingertips; the host of memories that holds together under the guise of identity, all simultaneously at the ready to be recalled at the drop of a hat, or the shake of a little lamb's tail.
All there and not there. Yet still so very, very there. To be alive. It matters not whether 'tis Socrates waking or Socrates slumbering. It's aware.
—Then what is there to be scared of? It's only shifting sands. Besides, Socrates had steel fuckin' balls.

Corporate wageslaving actually feels kind of rewarding if you go into a field where profit making happens to align with public interest. I'm in a corporate job where we develop software solutions for farmers in developing countries. We charge the poor sods a high price for our software, but their crop yield increases so much (median increase in crop yield is around 450% if they use our full service suite) that their quality of life drastically improves regardless of the price gouging.
It also happens to be easy to perform well in a corporate environment as long as you have high IQ. It's designed so you don't need to be particularly structured or energetic. It also does feel good to just knock out 8 hours from morning to evening and then you can feel good about taking the rest of the day completely off.

I have to choose between staying in my hometown with my family or moving across the country to live with my ex-GF (who I broke up with only due to the distance).
We were together for 3 years and I feel, if the distance were no longer a concern, I could see myself marrying her. But the idea of moving so far and being away from family and friends terrifies me, even if I'd only live with her for about a year.
Maybe it'd be good to do so I could get out of my comfort zone and start to grow, but I also hate how terrified it makes me feel and I'd still need to live here for a year before I could move due to school.

Shit, moving out of my parents house to place that's less than 10 minutes away already made me feel anxious as fuck so maybe I'm just a turbo-sperg. I probably am if I'm using 4chan as an emotional outlet.

To piggy back on this I wanna say some stuff.

"Wageslavery" is just a cope for people who are unemployable. It completely reveals one's own bottom position in the social hierarchy, because they're basically broadcasting the message that their only job prospects would be working shit jobs for almost no money. Well, whose fault is that if your only prospects are to be a "slave"? It's embarrassing.

I actually think it's epidemic. We have a generation of people who find work intolerable. I wonder also if most of these crybabies are children of single mothers. Women generally complain about work in a way that men don't. If these people had fathers, real fathers, then they would understand that life is work. Also a generation of people growing up on their computers, not having to leave their house, are obviously going to be scared of going outside.

Anyway, I don't want to tell my own story, but God, is having a nice job like being in a secret world. People are a joy to be around when they don't hate their own jobs, and when they have a sense of ownership and accomplishment about their work -- and when they have money!

These morons are no different than communists who whine about "the system". Well, dream on, because like it or not you're gonna have to work, and whining about it is going to keep you on the bottom. And, frankly, I don't care if you're on the bottom. By and large most people are failures.

Somewhat. It's definitely well-written (or at least better than anything I could articulate).

I know the decision will always be up to me in the end, regardless of how much I ask friends for advice or read about the experiences of others, yet having that choice just propels me into further paralysis and fear of the unknown.
When I first read Notes from Underground, I felt ashamed by the end of the book because of how much I empathized with the Underground Man. Being "intelligent", yet so lacking in an understanding of others that I'd rather stay in an unfavorable present and revel in my own misery than work towards a new future (although I don't find my current life particularly deplorable as UM did).
Maybe the ending of Notes should be a lesson to me, that if UM had been able to save Liza, who could have also opened the path to salvation for himself as well. Or maybe I'll be destined for stagnation as he was.

There's something about the old ways that can't be replaced. I know deep down that the few Campfire stories I was told as a child were nothing like the stories told five hundred, a thousand or more years ago. Or maybe just a few hundred years ago. When humans were still a part of the great Earth and not apart from it. I can't know what more the stories were like, as they were largely forgotten generations before my great grandparents were born. But I know that the way people acted back then, as necessarily savage and simple as they could have sometimes been, I know for certain that they were more human than I or my children can ever hope to be. I know the way they felt and thought and experienced their great Earth was so much deeper, more intimate, more personal than any experience I can ever have with it.
I can't shake the idea that so much of us has been lost. And we don't even really know what is gone. How can you call something missing if the hole has simply become a part of your entire shape?

working class suburb

I didn't know what a close friend was.

Bright spark, keenly inclined,
the kind of childhood mischievous creativity only brought from lack of parents.
Green eyes,
like the hills.
we were only kids.
And to think I could laugh this much.

Hostile world, different schools,
study at night, if at all.
But I still had dreams and projects,
And he still had dreams, and projects,
the sort of technology no one but us knew.
And to think it would mean so much.

warped facade, new ideas
changed more than appearance.
Desires profit from years of self loathing.
And to think what I lost.

I missed the part where you said that apathy stems from it. If you are certain that apathy stems from a lack of meaning, that means your solution could be a mental one.

As far as i remember, i never found meaning in anything. If anything it was more like i did what others thought could bring a meaning in my life. It wasnt like i wanted something and my parents opposed it but rather my parents encouraged doing and involving myself into anything but i refused because it seemed meaningless to me. Even now when i talk with mom, my main argument is that i'm unable to create myself from zero. It seems like it doesnt come intuitively to me like to others. Ever present doubting at myself also tramples every single positive thing i can think of.

To all anons writing prose and feeling like its dogshit, something that helped me was an interview recently with Kim Stanley Robinson that I saw live where he explains his novels as “eyewitness accounts”.

If you’ve ever read a KSR novel, there’s so many goddamned words and they’re very easy to read. The man wrote hundreds of thousands of words describing the surface of Mars and none of it reads like fiction, it doesn’t have that fake tryhard tone that lots of amateur prose has.

He explained that his technique is to give a big fuck you to all that “show don’t tell shit”, to abandon all the sensory immersion shit that people try to write. Tell a story from a character’s perspective the same way you’d tell a story in real life. Don’t try and get your reader to “feel the scene”, don’t acknowledge that it’s fiction by trying to over-write it. Think of it as an eyewitness account of a fictional event.
