I'm trying to cope with the fact that I will probably never be well-read. I keep trying to make this list, a kind of condensed list of the bare minimum I need to read in order to have a good foundational understanding of literature, but the list is never complete–always changing and shifting, its never perfect or even satisfactory.

So I decided to put together a smaller list, a list of core authors whose works I could keep coming back to year after year, a list of authors whose works would help shape and define my own. I stumbled onto Bloom's 'School of Melville,' consisting of Melville, Faulkner, Nathanael West, Ralph Ellison, Cormac McCarthy, Pynchon, and Toni Morrison. I was already a fan of McCarthy, Faulker and Melville so finding a set to which all three belonged was nice, so I could round out my reading. But then, there were so many more authors I had to read or wanted to read. I wanted to read Tolstoy but then I had to read Dostoevsky and Chekov. Flannery O'Connor was an obvious bridge between Faulkner and McCarthy. And so on.

The list never ends, it keeps going and going. There is so much to read and even though I'm only 19, I feel I will never reach a point where I'm comfortable with all that I have read; I will always be playing 'catch-up' with the greats.

Posted this a while ago but I was falsely accused of sexual assault late April and finally have an update. Going to stay discrete. Long story short I had a fling with a Tinder broad for a couple months. Was painfully obvious she was mentally ill and obsessed with me but the easy sex made me ignore the red flags. Called me to her place to initiate sex herself a few times a month since last year. After I cut things off and she found out I started dating another girl after we stopped talking she went berserk. Started telling her friends, parents, social media followers, etc. I attempted to rape her. Thought she was just trying to ruin my name till I got a call from a detective. Said he wanted my side of the story soon or he'd simply provide what she gave told him to a prosecutor to consider charges. Had to get an attorney who charged me $3000 right off the bat as a retainer fee. She told me to consider having to drop out of college and taking a plea deal to register as a sex offender for 15 years to avoid jail time if charges were filed and this went to court. I spent the last few weeks thinking my life was fucking over and couldn't make it an hour without being high on something to numb myself because I couldn't believe this was happening. Never even used drugs before either.

Right after paying the attorney, I sent her all our texts from Day 1. She was blown away and realized what happened, gave everything to the detective the next day and he dropped his investigation that same week. She said it was the most straightforward case she's ever had. Detective told her no prosecutor would bring charges let alone seek an indictment given the full story. The situation's over now. I get to continue on with my life as if this never happened but I just can't. I should be thanking the gods but I'm unable to snap back to normal. Maybe it's trauma of over a month resigning myself to the fact that everything I worked for my whole life was about to collapse and I'd be considered a rapist the rest of my life. My potential gf found out through social media and blocked me, I withdrew from everything, am still abusing substances, dropped almost 10 pounds, and lost over $5000 (most of my savings) for attorney fees but worst of all I feel like something died inside me. I always saw the best in people and looked at the world with rose colored glasses. Never was a feminist but I avoided internet "red pills" like the plague. When I'm not sedated with drugs I just feel venom coursing through my veins realizing this kind of evil exists in the world. A tenth circle of hell should exist just for this girl.

I don't really anything profound to say. I just wouldn't wish this upon my worst enemy. Please be careful around women guys. I'm probably an idiot for only just realizing this but all it takes is one unstable woman, or one bad night and it's all over.

Everything I want is so far away, right now. Ever since my birthday, I've been investing in stocks, some of which are working super well for me, others which are not awful, but mostly going nowhere. So I'm still poor.
I have general anxiety and was diagnosed with depression, so I don't feel as motivated as the average person, but like said person, I do my best to prepare for anything I want to do. I want a car, so I should get a job. I want to study, so I should change my environment to suit my studies. But I think life would be so much easier if I just had a car. I hate riding the bus and I hate wearing masks, especially since I wear glasses. If i get a job, I have to ride the bus, meaning I have to wear a mask more. It's just so much bullshit for me to deal with. But nobody said it would be easy. But fuck society, anyways.
I don't want a crappy car, which is the sub-2000 dollar category, but I can't afford any good ones. Then I have to deal with getting insurance, then dealing with terrible, shitty drivers. Maybe I could pick a good time to drive when practically nobody else is on the road, like at 9 or 10 am.
Sorry for the blabbering. That's what's on my mind right now.

I think I've lost that spark, that thing that kept me motivated and made strive towards greatness. In the last 6 years I've seen how, slowly, my will to achieve things vanished, and how I descended into a pit of mediocrity and hedonism.
I have always been an ambitious man, and I have always felt that I had the capicity to reach my goals, but I was never able to commit to anything for longer.
Now I do nothing but lie in my bed, browse this, make some shitpost for some quick dopamine fix, listen to music, read and daydream. I barely even eat, even if there's food, my diet consists mostly of caffeine.
I feel like an old whose dreams had been crushed a thousand times, but I'm still a young man.
I have planned so many times my future, but plans have a knack of just not coming true, and I time runs so fast...

Ah young Anon, fret not. Perfection is an illusion which we as mere mortals are incapable of attainting. To be whole, that is better. Read what you want, 'well-read' will come with time.
For literature is no mere winding coil of written word, it is art. Sure, art has it's own traits which borrow and expound upon others, but you do not necessarily need to have read, say, Melville to fully appreciate McCarthy, or Faust for Faulkner. Man is not born 'well-read', nor is he made so in trying for haste. Savor whatever you choose to read, and as long as it is art, I assure you that you will be fine.

Lately I'm struggling to find a purpose in life. I read different books to learn about different ideologies, but at the end I feel the same.

Every religion, every ideology, just feels like role playing to me at this point. If I had to describe my philosophy, I would say that I simply don't care about anything anymore.

Following an ambition demands a sacrifice. For example, if you want to become a writer, everything that is not somehow connected to writing must go. You must become a writing machine that judges everything only in terms of "how can use it my work?". Life itself becomes nothing but writing material.

Many /lit/izens strive to be writers but few understand that being a writer in all seriousness means being a writer for life. Otherwise, it's a hard case of ngmi.

if you aren't even in college yet, then how do you know if your grades are good enough for business or law? don't get down on yourself. You have plenty of time.
Assuming you can switch majors up until 3rd year, my advice is: spend lots of time thinking about 1) what you're good at, 2) what you're passionate about (be it justice, coding, environment, marketing, etc), and 3) where those two categories intersect. Take a year off between undergrad and grad school--that will allow you to apply to programs without being pressured by schoolwork.

>he starts sperging out at some meaningless accusations despite having proof of it being otherwise

Bro if you think facing rape charges, even when the evidence on your side, is that simple then you belong on Reddit yourself. They'll throw the most serious charges at you, so even if those don't stick they can settle on a less serious offense as long as it's a sex crime to win. Brother's friend got accused of serious sexual assault and there was enough evidence she lied about everything but he still put his arm on her thigh, which was enough to count as sexual imposition. Guess who's on the sex offender registry now and probably won't be able to find a job, home, or normal life ever again? Oh and even if the charges are dismissed, they stay on your background checks (unlike DUIs these things rarely get expunged) plus if a single local news story reports on your, people who search your name aren't gonna give you benefit of the doubt or want to associate with someone even tied to that allegation. OP might've been an idiot but if he deleted those texts it'd be over, and even with the texts the tiniest bit of incriminating evidence is all they need. Detectives set up recorded phone calls between the accused/accuser in all kinds of cases so the victim can get a simple apology or catch him saying anything that looks bad and that's all they need. Detectives don't care who's right, they want to gather enough evidence to indict you, they'll use everything they can against you and won't care that you get destroyed in the process. And a county prosecutor literally has no goal other than to get a conviction, they're elected politicians whose "success" is measured by how many people they put behind bars, so any failure to do that is a stain on their record. OP (if he's telling the truth) probably did nothing wrong but got his name smeared online so much his gf left him. But hey I guess that's literally nothing too. After all it's only a man's name and reputation, no big deal right?

If they have enough for a warrant for arrest sure. If not they can't enter your home and they aren't allowed to treat you any differently than your average citizen, suspect or not. The reason they want you to voluntarily come is to gather more evidence for one because they either (1) don't have enough yet or (2) are hoping you're gullible enough to incriminate yourself and make their jobs 10x easier.
>and even if they did notify you before hand you could have just met and explained and it would have gone no further.
Going to cut you some slack because you clearly live somewhere with different law enforcement but you never EVER meet with the cops without a lawyer. Detectives play nice but will record every word you say and use it against you even if 95% of your statements are exculpatory/contradicting the victim all they need is the 5%. They aren't judges they're hired to solve as many alleged crimes as possible - aka arresting suspects by any legal means as soon as they can, simple as. It's impossible to do that if you take sides against the person whose allegations you're investigating. They don't have to tell the suspect anything, even what the charges are or what evidence they have. Believe it or not it's also 100% legal and common for law enforcement here to lie to you. They're allowed to pull of whatever kikery it takes so they can score a "win" by sending incriminating evidence over to the prosecutor keeping their unresolved case rate as low as possible, that's the only metric of their success.

Why do interests matter more than personality? Or atleast why are interests what we present outwardly as opposed to say what kind of people we are?
I suppose it might have to do with interests being easier to relate to and find commonality with, but wouldn't the same be true for personality? I mean, there's certainly going to be common ground there.
Or maybe its because interests are heavily commodified and so since we see things that would be considered interests all around us they just become indistinguishable from personality, like basing your existence around fitting into a certain role, a Star wars fan for example, or a marvel fan, basing their person on an "interest"
Maybe there's not much difference between the 2 I guess, one would certainly influence the other right?
I would certainly appreciate any thoughts anyone else might have on this

>> No.18371270 [DELETED] 

imo, it’s because we are not sufficiently capable of identifying ourselves either due to ego (an irascible or lazy person would not accurately describe themselves as such) or the inherently complicated nature of an individuals personality. Interests are things to that run deep in our minds and souls, and are probably the quickest way to the root of someone’s personality without having to get hung up on minor distractions.
I don’t think there is too much of a separation ultimately, a lot of people like to take this sort of ‘fake person’ angle as a critique, but not all interests are funko pops and YA novels.
I have met people on hikes whose love of hiking makes them act like religious ascetics. I don’t even like hiking too much, but I recognize that an interest in it coincides with a really insightful, patient personality.

How do I deal with what feels like the double edge of a fear of being single/alone, but the knowledge that I know I won't really be happy being with another person (unless I find, let's say, the 1 in a million "love of my life" that invigorates me to want to be more selfless and apply my entire devotion to her with earnest sincerity)?

It really makes me feel sick. I'm getting out of a 9 year relationship with a person who I many times had feelings of, "I don't want to be with her anymore, I don't want to be here anymore, (but I don't want to be alone...)" and even though I'm getting out of it, I feel a greater anxiety than the idea of remaining with her even if I was to be unhappy (unhappy > anxiety?

Animals behave the way they do because they follow a narrative of life for life. Humans can condense storytelling by expending energy to use language, gestures and tools to narrate events, and so we suffer for we will always find words lacking. And because our words sounded mundane compared to the real thing we embellished our stories to compensate. We anguished more. However, there is no need for this. Being yourself and feeling life and living life will do. Writing stories is unnecessary head stuff and mental detouring. Really, it is cope for those who are unwilling to excite, lead or join the others in living in the world,

I moved to moldova recently as an american, a month before i came i talked to this girl online and we fell in love, when i arrived we went on some dates and entered a relationship. I did not come for her but recently she got romanian citizenship which allows her to study in western europe, now she wants to move to sweden i guess this fall.
I want to break up with her now, theres no point in being in a doomed relationship when in one year we will break up, i love her alot but logically this is the best thing to do.

I want to stay and live here moldova, she wants to leave, its that simple.

I cried a couple times today because i dont want to do it, i even have thoughts of moving with her but i shut them out quickly and hate that i have them. I did not come here for her and i wont leave for her either and i fucking hate the west, i left for many many reasons.

Anyways i hope she isnt too mad, i implied i would do this and she called me lazy for wanting to stay in eastern europe and not make as much money as i can.

Part of me looks forward to getting another girlfriend i guess and cold approaching girls here in chisinau, but another part dreads finding a decent girl in the fucking mess that is the dating market but maybe this country is better, or worse, than america

Its cheap and comfy, amazing food, great nature, rent is 200-300 euros, food is unbelievably cheap.

Still fighting my porn addiction. It's a struggle, but it will be worth to overcome it and myself. The addiction is truly a need, my body aches for it sometimes. At times I'm very frustrated and disappointed in myself for giving in to the urges, but I try to forgive myself for doing what I know to be bad. Most of all, boredom leads me easily towards porn. So I try to stay mentally busy and physically active through walks, bicycle trips and jogging. Reading has been a big help against inaction and thus boredom and porn. Reading great ideas and the quest for knowledge is in my view a fundamental human archetype. Now, to use that knowledge to improve mine and the world around me, that is the harder question.

Is this trolling? It's not clever or funny. Anyone can to act like a seething retard. It doesn't take any special knowledge or skill, and it only serves to drive away anyone with more than half a brain, because no one in their right mind would want to spend time in a place with people like these.

Everybody believes in things that are not physical and cannot be explained empirically or rationally. It is a natural human tendency. This is why atheists who reject God make up new things to believe in, such as their social forces spooks, systemic racism, toxic patriarchy, etc. If they actually followed the purely empirical and rational worldview that they pretend to have then they would not believe any of that shit. The new systems of today are not entirely new inventions, but more like a change in the order of things. Instead of starting with the metaphysical and God, modern secular people start with the material and extrapolate vague wishy washy, pseudo-metaphysical ideas from that.

This is of course, a shit metric, but well, they are teenagers, and even it beats the metric you use to determine who can be your neighbors - which is usually tax bracket.

"Personality", on the other hand, is hard to quantify (even Myers-Briggs is horoscope tier), and a lot of young folks don't really know what they want (and even some older folks are open to surprises).

Social forces and systemic racism etc. are actual things and they’re caused by belief systems. IE the racist has picked up a belief racial supremacy/inferiority from his parents.

I do not know how nor where to start analyzing some crude data for a scientific article, it has been like this for almost a year. It is a small niche in climate science, it is troublesome as I do not have faith in peer review, research culture, or how my small contribution will find its way to humanity inside little boxes of highly specialized knowledge. The person who was my advisor told me that the paper must be published as soon as possible, as someone else may publish the same findings earlier than us and it may be a waste of money if that happened.
I feel genuine disinterest for the data, yet it does not seem I can just give it away, if it is duty or fear what stops me from moving on, changing my life, doing things that fill me with hope and desire. I feel like a brainlet for not enjoying this stuff. What I fear is coming off as a useless piece of shit. I have felt left out of scientific circles for reading spiritual stuff and philosophy. I do not know how to communicate my own views without coming as preachy or a narcissist, my science pretty much is seeing the world as problems to be solved and predicting for disaster to break loose. I fear just saying fuck it and regretting it later. I have lost what it means to be genuine to myself. If being genuine is staying with the trouble or running away with all my strength.
I’m still speechless why it happened to me. Why I have this huge complex for institutions and figures of power, why I want to come off as a good person and stand out as successful.

materialist, you are a hypocritical fool to use logic. Your post is meaningless and worthless.

Counting calories is popular for a reason. The main reason people end up binging is because it's extremely easy to say "one more" unless you're following a specific ruleset that states clearly exactly what your limit is. The brain must have evolved toward binge eating because there's nothing really preventing us from it and a lot of triggers in the mind that push us toward it, which has been exploited by the (US) food industry. What you should really ask yourself is, don't you hate feeling like shit all the time? That weighty feeling you get when you walk around? The feeling of dissatisfaction after eating something bad for you despite the momentary pleasure, and the knowledge you can't eat like this forever? Imagine a life where it actually feels good to walk around and do stuff. That's what it's like to be healthy. You should definitely try it.

A healthy diet and exercise can help to improve your outlook on life. Honestly. You can get better. You have to do it.

Well, it worked for me and many others. The idea isn't to do it indefinitely but to use it until the urges to cheat go away, which does eventually happen.

i come here to plant the flag of my new colony we shall henceforth refer to as and only as The People's Democratic Republic of the Bongo.
Autists and girls are NOT ALLOWED (refugees welcome) in this our grand illustration of the intended implementation of the american Con-stitution.
If you join my colony you will be allotted 2 acres of irrigated land.
You should also consider there is a reason you have found yourself in this very situation, and are now reacting to it the way you are. Let's be honest here, you don't have much of choice. SO GET THE FUCK ON THE BOAT Блядь.
»these were the first words to rain upon my ears from the sharply dressed soviet officer. Everyone gathered on the dock in the Ostyak settlement that night knew they wouldn't hear from this officer until they would be told to get off on Nazino Island.

> People maintained a healthy weight long before calories were on food packages
We didn't figure out how to extract nitrogen from the air until the turn of the century, so we've never had so much food before. We've certainly never before had so much shitty food basically designed to break your endocrine system forever.

Not that calories alone mean much of anything. You can get fat eating 50,000 calories worth of burgers a day, or starve to death eating 50,000 calories of celery.

Traditionally, it meant to build an RPG character for maximal combat efficiency while ignoring its personality and role in the group, but has come to indicate any situation where you favor statistics over potentially more important factors with wild abandon.

She is depicted as "swiping left", discarding a flood of dating opportunities on, possibly, Tinder. The poster is no doubt alluding to the mechanization and "unfair distribution" of the modern dating scene than so much of the youth complains of.

But as I remember Nixon, and am likely the oldest grampah in the virtual room, I suspect you already knew all this.

I'm possibly mentally ill and highly successful in my career. Yet I feel like I'm not happy with my ability in my career. I also have not moved toward any self actualization of my own creativity. I need new glasses, I have an ear infection, I have friends and talk to none of them. I'm just as unfocused now as this post. Have a great night everyone.
