I met a guy from elementary school today at work, he is postman tho I haven't seen him in the last years I was working there, so he must be new at least in my area, I did not ask for how long he was doing it but he does it full time unlike me. Apparently he had served in the military for 4 years. I kept him in mind as a more fragile person, maybe even subordinate which would fit the military well at least.

The funny thing is I had to think about him a few days ago as I was asking myself what happened to all the people I met in life. The ripping flood of time we cannot avoid or hide from was my thought of origin to this.

You fucking people. I'm sitting here in Alsace, SSH tunneled back home to avoid aids from unencrypted hotel internet, and I've just spent 30 minutes reading the backlog from the last today threda. You and all your drama blogs, especially you, Franz Kazkha! Being here, about to go on a hike in the Vosges, I think what you need is to get out into nature every now and then, walk the steppe for a few hours to gain a different perspective.

And now I need to leave for the marché couvert or I won't get breakfast before I have to catch my bus. Dog, I love these market halls here in france.

Also, I haven't finnished the last today threda yet, so if all of that was obsolete and you're all fine, ignore the above.

On the other hand, I feel fucking incredible today.
Is this what exercise does to the psyche?

Although, a bit restless and hyperactive, it's better than being sluggish.

I will probably replace my leg routine with cardio, and dedicate all lifting to upper body. My upper body is pathetically weak compared to my legs, and I can't really do cardio when I'm having terrible DOMS from squats.

Thanks bro.
I pretty much gave away this month's paycheck to mom so she can pay bills and mortgage, so I don't have any disposable income, but next month I should be able to spend some alone time in nature.

I've always dreamed of having enough money and free time to just walk into the steppe and live there a year as a hermit drinking pisswater and eating plants. I think it could be a very spiritually rich experience that gives me a new perspective on life.

Walk away into the steppe, be consumed by it. Like the great prophets in the desert.

God damn section managers at work screwing with me, the shift management is fine because they share the same mindset as most of the staff but once they get to where they're in charge of front or back of house and above they just start acting like morons. They have my shifts so spread out that I'm out of practice by the time I come back to work, and then give me shifts that I haven't worked in six months or more and complain when I don't remember every aspect like clockwork. It's going to be ebin when it starts falling apart. I'm not the only one who isn't getting enough hours to make a living wage anymore and staff morale is rock bottom. Nobody writes up anything that needs fixing anymore because they know it won't happen, nobody busts their arse to go the extra mile because why bother when you're not even worth a living wage to your employer. Lots of the staff and some shift managers have just stopped giving two fucks about anything that's not going to cause them immediate problems because the entire workplace has stopped giving any reason to help them if it's not going to benefit you. There are some of us who have been there for years who get shafted by section managers giving hours to their friends who they hire on, section managers putting shit on shift managers for things that aren't their jurisdiction and so on. It'll happen soon I think that someone is going to walk out and it'll domino effect to the rest of the experienced crew because they start not knowing anybody anymore.

Well, I work out with BURNING FERVOUR when I am drunk, so I guess it's that.

And don't be alarmed, this is how I used to act when I was 16-19 and permanently maniacal. I used to be a celebrity in every single video game community I frequented, just because of how I acted.

I lived in a basement back then too, so I could yell to my heart's content. Good times.

These days I feel so boring, like I'm losing myself. I want to yell some more.

So far I have experienced 4 stages of mood while drinking alcohol:

1. Happiness
This stage can't really be described as "happiness" but I know of no better term to use. The chief characteristic of this stage is that it removes the "droning" quality of existence. To be more specific: it removes the feeling of disappointment that is felt when I wake up or have some strong emotional reaction and unconsciously expect reality to have ceased existing. When nothing happens and reality continues to exist I feel uncomfortable. This droning quality can also be described as a feeling that each day will be the exact same as the present, even if I know for certain that things will change (and even if I partially direct those changes). In spite of this, I do not want my life to be the same as it is right now. It is just that my current life is so sufficiently different (seems that way at least) from the life that I'd like to have as to make them seem impossible to coexist; as if they could only exist as two separate realities where I am a completely different person and my life circumstances are completely different in the other reality.
The "happiness" I feel is an accepting of my current circumstances; the feeling that the way the world is just how it is and I can be content with that.
A somewhat acceptable analogue of the removal of the "droning" quality of existence is Schopenhauer's "negative" happiness.

2. Anger
What mostly preoccupies this stage is the anger that I feel towards myself for drinking, and for wasting my time as I won't be able able to do anything productive (it is difficult to accurately gauge the necessary amount of alcohol needed to reach Ballmer's Peek).

3. Mania
I imagine this is that mood that you where in when you made those posts. I experience similar things; pseudo-spiritual revelations, intense feelings of empowerment, disassociation with reality, etc. I gain a lot of stamina and enjoy music like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ll-zNzEEelI, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TuzfMR-7v1I in this stage. It is also the stage where I lose control of myself and smash bottles on the wall, forget to do errands, etc. Try to remember/have in the back of your head during this stage that this emotional state will not last and that you'll be yanked back into reality in order to not do something that you'll seriously regret. Probably you don't need me to tell you this as you have doubtless already reached this emotional state countless times before.

4. Sadness
I do not know if you commonly reach this stage and stay there for an extended period of time, as so far it seems you peak at stage 3 and then go back to relative normality over a period of time. At this stage I am stricken with intense sadness and and start laying on my side. When I am on my side I start shivering, breathing slowly, and have trouble seeing. I am pretty sure at this stage it is possible to get alcohol poisoning. This is also the stage where I tend to vomit the most. The worst feeling is when you keep trying to vomit but only small bits of spit come out, so over a period of a couple hours you have vomiting sessions until some of the effects of the alcohol wear off and you eventually stop. On the plus side, the day after I start drinking I feel I have gone through a purge of my spirit and inner psyche in a similar way as the indigenous people of the amazon with Ayahuasca (although the process leading up to the "purge" is very different, as well as the purge itself). For the rest of the day I have a feeling of incredible detachment. Food and water taste different. To give an example: the bottled water that I normally drink starts tasting like plastic and I feel nauseous if attempt to drink it. These effects wear off after I sleep.
The attitude that does remain after a couple weeks is a strong opposition to consuming any sort of alcoholic drink.
So funnily enough one thing you can attempt is to nearly get alcohol poisoning in order for you to stop drinking alcohol for some time and hopefully stop drinking altogether (although I don't recommend this as I don't know if you will get this effect and I don't want you to literally poison yourself)!

One thing that was discussed before was microdosing LSD or psilocybin instead of drinking alcohol. If you do not have access to these substances (or do not want to take a chance) one thing that you can do is to order research chemicals with similar effects but different drug laws surrounding them. I do not know the specific drug laws in Kazakhstan, but for most countries in the world research chemicals are either legal or in a grey area.
Example for me: https://bclsupply.com/, https://chemlogix.ca/en/4-aco/2-4-aco-dmt.html.
You could probably order something from Russia or the EU if nothing is available in Kazakhstan.

Going to the public swimming pool now, hoping that it's not too full to swim. If it is I will only go the water a bit to cool off and read at the outside. I've read some reviews of the pool and one woman commented that likely some "youths" were completely out of control so the women had to swim in shirts and/or pants. Another guy wrote that arabs were hitting on the girls and africans were smoking a joint next to his family. :DD
Sounds exaggerated because I often go to the pools and it's never as bad as that but who knows what happens in the summer when everyone literally is in heat!

Damn, I'm feeling kinda embarrassed.

I really wanted to fix my relationship with dad, but he started a scandal again, and my "beat up dad" reflex just spontaneously activated and I split his lip.

You see, I get sort of a PTSD thing when I hear his angry drunken voice, it brings me right back into my childhood. I can't bear it, it makes me very anxious. So I got up and punched him in the face without thinking too much.

Anger is a preferable alternative to anxiety. I hate anxiety. And I hate loud noises and scandals.

It's kinda awkward because that other time when I was near-unconsciously drunk, I told him we should hang out and fix our relationship, but now I beat him up again. He seemed pretty hurt about it tbh.

Why can't he just NOT start yelling at the slightest provocation? Why can't he just, like be normal? I think he's legit mentally retarded. What am I even supposed to do with him? It's not like showing him respect will fix his malignant brain, he'll still be a piece of shit like he's always been. Not sure what I was thinking back then.

In fact, when you show him kindness, he starts acting like an even more of an asshole. Like when my uncle from mother's side gave him a job out of pity, and he'd eat at cafes, drink and gammble while our house didn't have electricity, and brag about how important his is to my uncle's business and how indispensable he is. When in fact he was doing more harm than good (just as the rest of his life).

I can't deal with the idea of a person who is an unfixable piece of shit no matter how you treat him, regardless of whether he's rich or poor, drunk or sober. He's just a piece of shit down to the core, and the tragedy of it all is that he doesn't understand that he's retarded, so he feels like a victim and the whole world is against him.

I have noticed that alcohol simply amplifies my previously existing mental state rather than altering it.

If I'm feeling optimistic, when drunk I become social and chat with people.
If I'm slightly hyper, I get hypomanic when drunk.
If I'm sad, I get manic depression and start writing poetry and singing out loud.

I haven't really been angry for a long time, though. I used to have really bad anger issues, becoming so enraged I couldn't control my actions, smashing stuff, etc. But now I don't feel angry at all, I dunno why. I just become sad instead.

Even when I was beating up and choking my dad I wasn't angry. I was simply in the "zone", letting my reptile brain control the body while I simply observed.

Sometimes I think that I want to work for long enough so I can buy mom her own place, then spend my last paycheck on heroin and coke, get fucked on speedball and die.

I really don't see my life going anywhere for the next 10 years. I can't bring a girl home with a family like this, and I will be paying off my family's debts for a long time before I can start building my own life.

I'd rather pay my dues, arrange a life for my mum, and then kys. She has two other sons who can support her and continue the lineage.

When I see all of these normal people with normal childhoods and normal families I get incredibly envious. Something that was predetermined for me to not have since before I was born.

I'm going to listen to acid bath and feel sad now. I wanted to get drunk again, but I felt guilty about mum, so I didn't. Now the stores are all closed and I'm fiending with no escapism. I wish I could fall asleep.

Find the boss and bluntly tell him that I fucked up. Shit happens to everyone and how you deal with that is what separates the skilled from the bone-idle.

I imagine it's a bit late for that but maybe you could send an email now or see him first thing tomorrow pretty understandably. In the meantime is there anything you can do to alleviate the damage rather than hiding under the bedsheets like a little girl?

Ok, I apologized to my dad and promised to never hit him again. If he gets drunk and aggressive, from now on I will just escort him to his room so he can go back to sleep.

And since I now earn money, I told him that if he has any problems with mom, instead of starting a scene, he should just come to me instead and I'll try to solve the problem.
His last chimpout was due to the fact that he was hungry and we had no food at home. Next time he feels that way, I'll just buy him something to eat.

I hope mom and dad stop interacting alltogether since they hate each other so much, and just use me as the mediator.

Damn. I feel focused and see things more clearly than I have in a long time. I spent a good 5 hours this afternoon staring out between my blinds at the street and watching the sun going down. I was extremely clear headed and could muster only disgust at them scurrying around like ants. It wasn't an aggressive kind of disgust though, it was very cool and eye-opening like I could see their true forms for a change instead of the smiling bullshit that they put on. I think I have found the optimal frame of mind for surviving in a world where everything outside my room is the enemy. A mental state that is fully squared away but always aware of how this entire society is designed to set people like me up and take us down. Why do you think that the state pays for people to go to shrinks? To get help? No. They pay for it so that the person goes there and within the bounds of their own game signs away their personhood. And every single one of the damn insects that make up the system are complicit in it.

Feels bad that this is the world I exist in but feels good that I'm clear-headed again.

If you have a bike, take a look at [1] and find the best way from your place to the hills south-east. Do it in the morning when you have no work ahead (sunday?), take only water with you, drive out there until you are no longer surrounded by houses. Then turn away from the street/path and just find a place that blocks the view to the city and where not many people should pass by. Sit down, look at the surrounding nature, stay there for at least a few hours and soak in the sounds and view of the place. If you are lucky you might get the feeling of being the last person alive.
Do this regularly. For example whenever you think you should drink a beer, go out there instead. If you've found a good place, go there each time and learn to concentrate on just the things that are there. Grass, maybe trees, insects, the hard ground, the sky. This stuff exists; you are impermanent, all your problems and worries are impermanent.

I really hope you'll give it a try. These things helped me.

The teacher who was assigned to my class said she's leaving the school. Judging by facebook posts the administration has completely collapsed, so I've decided to transfer schools.
A HS is ought to take me after two early, +90% maturas and good grades.

I feel completely demoralized. It's like I've been betrayed. Is this natural? Feeling sad about school and such. I wanted to go study, and I've been hindered.
Honestly, I don't want to work next week on either my essay, or my translation. Depends how my mood is.

No, I still have 4 chapters from The Master of Go. Then the re-workings.
Nibelungenlied would be my next project.
Looked into the copyright thing, and I have my hopes up, since the guy who did the English version bit the dust 10 years ago.

Have I told you how much I like the Nibelungenlied btw? It's such a moving story. I could get more out if it if I were German I think, but I just find this medieval epic so touching.
I've read parts of the German original, the Simrock version, the Hungarian translation from 1867, and I've also read the Völsunga saga.
Tears flood into my eyes, just thinking about it.
Haven't read the Wagnerian take on it, but I managed to haggle for a Hungarian copy, and my music and chorus teacher said I should definitely read it, because it's a good read. Too bad I wasn't picked to hold the little "seminarium" or "presentation" about Wagner, his works and his life.
I got Tchaikowsky. I've listened to nearly 30 hours of his music to get to the bottom of it.
The Nibelungenlied makes me wish I were German.

Oooh I didn't know about the Völsunga Saga in particular, but readin about it makes me want to read it. At first I thought you meant Voluspä, but even though it's a different piece it seems indeed to be connected.

All your talk about the Nibelungenlied makes me want to read that as well. My former flat mate had a print from around 1900, but he took it with him and I don't have any copy at all. Maybe I can borrow it when we meet again.

To make you more envious I can tell you that I've visited many places in the Rheinland that are connected to the story of Siegfried, like the Drachenfels in the Siebengebirge or the Loreley. Beautiful places, and if you ever visit this area you should pack hiking gear and search for a path called the "Rheinsteig" - it runs along most of the river rhine, split into stages for daily tours. I recommend the section between Bonn and just south of Koblenz the most.

I just felt something I didn't feel while reading the Homeric epics. Some genuine connection with the characters and the events. Their heroic deeds, misdeeds, betrayals, and grandiose, yet petty revenges.
On one hand, it's serious, yet it's not really graphic in its contents, save for Siegfried's death and betrayal (I cri every tiem).
I mean if I had a 8-10 year old son, I'd read it to him. It's an exciting story and the language is pretty.

One of my bigger woes is that I'll probably never visit the Bayreuth Festspiele, plainly because it's far away, I lack the funds, and there is a 5-10 year waiting period for a ticket.

As for the Völsunga saga, that's just the Nibelungenlied - Director's cut. Longer story, less Christianity, more supernatural elements, more divine intervention. It's the Icelandic version. The names are changed, and it's in prose, with the occasional small verse in an untranslatable Icelandic form.
If you liked the original, then you are ought to read this to get the full picture. By all means, do read it, it's undeservedly obscure in some parts of the world. I'd shout "Germanophobia", but I don't think it's because of that

I've picked up our would be national epic from the 1800s (Would be, because it would be a trilogy, but the guy who wrote it died before he could finish it), and I realized with excitement, that it was a retelling of the Nibelungenlied, but from the side of Attila's and Bleda's Huns. Haven't read it yet, but I must read it now. See how dear this work is to us, yet here, not even the textbooks mention it, and it hasn't received a widespread printing since the 1900s (The 00s of the 1900s). It makes me feel genuinely sad. That's why I want to re-translate or re-work it into Hungarian. Maybe I can breathe new life into it. [Delusion of Grandeur intensifies]

All this talking makes me feel better, maybe stuff will be all right.

I'Ve been lurking twitter mostly for the last year since KC was blocked at wörk and I wanted to be more productive anyways but now I quit my job so...
I know KC is ded for a while, can someone fill me in a bit what happened after it went down? I remember checking some other sites as well (krautchan.co, kohlchan, ...?) but they didn't seem particularly active
Is this the board where most /int/ BerndsErnsts(?) migrated to?

KC was deactivated by DerGeneral, and most Bernds flooded Ernstchan, since this was the "other German imageboard", while also creating a bunch of other boards like Krautchan.co, 8ch.net/KC and kohlchan in the process.
The original mod team of Ernstchan had a different view of what an imageboard should be, and banned Bernds left and right. This culminated in a raid by Kohlchanners spamming the word "nigger" and doxing some mods and shaming them for being communist anitfa members.
So they closed down Ernstchan.net .
Ernstchan was revived on this by entirely new mods shortly after most Bernds and cancerposters moved to kohlchan, which became the new shitposting board, and EC became the wall of text depressionblog and assburger central you see here.
The /fefe/ board was turned into the independent "dietchan", to which bot EC and nu-KC links to. Einskanal.net is the /jp/ offspring of nu-KC. The Drunk Anime Thread lives on magyarchan.net's /i/ board.

No, after KC died a death Bernds split into many fractions, many new imageboards were born but only few of them survived.
In the end the /pol/ tier Bernds settled for Kohlchan and the rest invaded Ernstchan but because Bernd has to destroy everything he also killed Ernstchan.
Ernstchan.xyc was made after the original died and it's around as slow as it was before Bernd invasion.

Thanks for the detailed explanation, seems like it's all rather fragmented now
I guess I'll just try lurking here as well as kohlchan for a while, I'm all for serious discussions but I don't mind some shitposting either. I think KC had a decent mix of both at some point, though it was getting out of hand a bit. Though actually I don't even remember it that well

What's the name of this would be national epic? And has it ever been translated to German or English? I'd be quite interested in this story from the perspective of the huns.

The title is Buda Halála, or The Death of Bleda.(Der Tod Blödels, perhaps?)
It hasn't been translated into anything as far as I know, and I'm surprised to find that it hasn't even got a Hungarian wikipedia page.
The work itself is a bit irrelevant, since as I mentioned, the trilogy was never finished, and this is the lonesome first part, but it has all the Characters from the second part of the German epic.
Some of the names are changed though, "Hungaricized".
Blödel becomes Buda
Dietrich becomes Detre
and so on.
Some of these changes persist in the translation of the epic itself. The Hungarian translation has an inconsistent spelling of names, mainly to fit the verse. I didn't really have a problem with it, I'd say it added to that archaic style the text itself had.
I've also noticed that the character's nicknames are evoked a lot more often for the same reason. Volker is called "Geigenschlag" in the German version I think, but I had to search the text for this, while in the Hungarian version he is called "Hegedős" or "One with the fiddle/Violin" throughout the text.

Honestly, I have no fucking idea what our national epic is. This is the would-be epic we were supposed to have.
The other that comes to mind is Szigeti veszedelem (The Peril of Sziget in English and Der Fall von Sziget in German translation) Surprised to see it has a German translation, but there seems to be only one printing of it from 1944
This one is about a castle the Turks laid siege on, and instead of surrendering, the defenders charge through the gates in a blaze of glory, killing the Sultan if I remember correctly.
But this isn't a "Folk-epic" like the Nibelung-ethos, but an artificial one from the 17th century. Heavily Christian in tone.
The language is very dated, and borrows words from Latin and Turkish often in the text. I'd say most native speakers would have trouble reading it without some footnotes, explaining the extinct words and expressions.
I don't know about the German and English versions though. I'd say the style is untranslatable, and I haven't found much enjoyment in it besides the funky ye-olde magyar style. Honestly, this epic is the reason I translated 10 or so episodes from an anime, because I wanted to refit the subtitles into this archaic, almost aristocratic manner.
Honestly, I feel a much stronger bond with the German national epic, than with that. No idea why. Maybe I'm just a closet germanophile.

Yesterday I went to the local mall to buy myself some clothes for fall and winter. I gotta say, that was a very unpleasant experience. Hundreds of people were talking at the same time, which, combined with all sorts of screens flashing and changing colours caused a sensory overload within 30 minutes of me being there. Oh, and the most "fun" part was trying on clothes. Every time I looked at the mirror to see if the clothes fit, I saw Spede's certified stare there. Not joking, I looked like pic related minus the beard and the suit.

My order just came in the mail today. My collection is coming along nicely thus far. The most recent acquisitions are in "Collection_2018_002.jpg". Those were shipped without jewel cases for the seller to save on shipping and packaging.

I'm getting quite a bit of an education on tracking bootlegs which seem to be all too common in this niche. The difficulty for bands with these political views to keep their material in circulation provides ample opportunity for bootleggers to issue fraudulent reissues. The Ultime Assaut CD sadly is one of them. The telltale signs should've been obvious, but I decided to take the risk and sadly got burnt. The insert had all the hallmarks of a bootleg: poorly translated liner notes taken from second hand sources, artifact-ridden images sourced from various websites, lack of photos from the band, et cetera. The biggest revelation the CD was a bootleg was FLACing it. Running the FLACs through SPEK revealed almost identical levels to the 192kbps mp3s floating around on various sites and filesharing communities. In any case, I'm not blaming the seller since I specifically asked for this version because I was too curious to see if it was a bonafide reissue.

Another bootleg woe was the copy of "Land and Heritage" by Arresting Officers I received from an eBay seller. Truth be told, I wholly believe the guy acted in good faith on account of some rumors regarding Rock-O-Rama Records. After Herbert Egoldt died, Rock-O-Rama was in limbo as he alone owned all the rights to music issued on that label. Apparently, the rights went to an unidentified individual who purchased the label and started issuing CD-Rs of the previous catalog. According to user Ödelagt on Nuclear War Now! forums, all that this label using the name Rock-O-Rama Records sells are deadstock CDs and crummy CD-R reissues. This would explain the "Land and Heritage" CD-R I received as well as other listings I've spotted on Discogs. On the plus side, the "Patriotic Voice" CD from Arresting Officers appears to be bonafide with a few caveats. The CD was pressed during their years when they were tagging reissues with ALCD rather than the proper RCD or RRR code during the mid '90s.

From the handful of people who share my passion for all things RAC, I advise you against buying directly from Rock-O-Rama Records. Not only have they been hacked by Anonymous, all their reissues have all the hallmarks of cheap knockoffs: pressed on CD-Rs, inserts with artifact-ridden images, et cetera.

Anyway, enough niggling. There are plenty of CDs I'm quite happy with and look forward to growing my collection.

I find it strange that there's enough of a market for them to bootleg. You'd think that people would stick to making false copies of things that'll sell quickly and easily. Or is it more like the collectible market where the real ones disappear quickly and never reenter the market?

>Or is it more like the collectible market where the real ones disappear quickly and never reenter the market?

That's much more common. People often change or simply wish to leave their days as musicians behind them. As such, bonafide original issues command a high market value. Hell, this is not just limited to RAC. I've seen bonafide copies of G.I.S.M. LPs fetch for four figures.

In other cases, the band loses the original DAT or master tapes and thus the album is lost forever. That was the case with the band Italian Doom/Prog band Black Hole. Every CD copy of "Land of Mystery" you see online is sourced from a cleaned up vinyl LP sanctioned by the band.

How I'd go about it is double check on your end before you send it upstairs and tell him that you've double checked it but take a brief scan and tell you if he sees a mistake and you'll fix it. I dunno, maybe you do/have. I think that if you haven't already, do make it clear that you're not asking him to fix it, just spot it before it goes out the door, but he's also probably not a proofreader so there should be some checking before it gets to him too. Give a little take a little, probably the best way to go about that situation.

My main takeaway from my alco adventures is that the joyous state is quite exhausting and bothersome. I much prefer being sad. It feels comfortable and familiar to be sad, and there is no pleasure greater than lying in your bed being sad, and then falling into a deep slumber and seeing sad dreams. It feels like home.

And others seem to view me being a sadcunt as my "true" self. Apparently, they think I'm so much more charismatic when I'm miserable. I guess they're right, I hate extroverted spazzy fucks myself.

It's not that being a sadcunt is your true self but rather that you under a large dose of a mind-altering substance like alcohol is by logic alone, not your real self. If you find a way to be happy that doesn't involve drinking yourself to oblivion/death, then we'll all see that.

I seems kinda weird that my source of reality checks is an offshoot of an obscure german imageboard, but it is what it is.
It's why I've been shitposting so much lately, I need second opinions, and a lot of them. If you don't act obnoxious enough to breach the barrier of politeness, you'll never hear anyone's true opinion.

But the part about being more "charismatic" while melancholic is from my mother. She said that when a big man (by asian standards) like me acts like a hyperactive spazz, it looks "weird and disturbing" (in her words).
>>
No. 7341
>>7330
I couldn't say if it's weird or not. NTs have their social circles that they presumably bounce ideas off of, and imageboards are the social circles of people like us. To me it makes perfect sense, but I guess to a well-adjusted person it might seem strange to have a social life in text. That said, if your ma is saying that you're acting kind of disturbing, you should probably take that to heart. She's better versed in the physical aspects of your behaviour than us, especially in the Brickistan context.

Have ever heard of Citavi? If you plan on doing masters and you have a degree that contains a lot of writing papers, citavi can be useful in organizing your notes, you can create the whole structure of your bachelor/master/book/paper in it with your notes individually attached to each chapter and then just import that into Word where you just make the fine adjustments the transitions between notes/chapters etc all the notes.

Basically Citavi organizes your research notes and literature and makes it possible to create the skeleton of your work

LaTeX is a set of macros on top of TeX. It's written by different people and has a lot of the typical open-source rot attached, unlike TeX which is feature-frozen for all time and only receives bugfixes. It is however the way most people (including me) use TeX nowadays.

I reduced my dosage of Prozac. I think it was making me slightly maniacal and inducing drug seeking behavior.
After cutting down, I drank two cans of beer expecting a familiar buzz, but instead almost threw up and passed out.

My paycheck's going into bills and mortgage. So I still have no agency and self-sufficiency. If only I didn't turn schizo at 16. If I started working at the age of 18, I'd have something by now, maybe.

I'm not sure what to do with my time. Since I don't drink any more, all I have left is shitposting on imageboards. Still have no motivation to play video games and music is awfully dull recently.

I think I might need IRL friends, as weird as that sounds. Force myself to do at least SOMETHING, with company as encouragement. Funny, I used to think "I don't need any friends, I can do whatever I want on my own". Well, I can, but turns out, I won't.

This is England e.g is a film I've seen many years ago and I liked it as well. There is something intriguing about British society.

Damn it man. I dunno what to say here since I've quit because of shitty bosses before, but part of having a job is putting up with other people's bullshit. That's why you get paid and aren't receiving profit directly and why starting your own business is such a popular thing. As a worker though, pride don't do you no favours, you've got to swallow it and just do what you've been told to do and it's not always pleasant but it being unpleasant is why you get paid.

Also, I wouldn't be too sure of their inability to replace you after two paychecks. I've seen far more experienced guys sidelined for less. I suppose some good is happening in that you can't afford half as much beer as you have been able to, but that's not really a step up in the end.

Nah, we'll probably calm down and arrange something.

His problem is that he doesn't want to pay me as much, and wants to cut my pay by 30%. This little incident, which isn't even worth stressing about since it was such a small order, was just an excuse.
At the same time, he doesn't want me to work from home even though all my job is digital and online.

30% of my paycheck already goes into commuting and dinner, so there's no reason for me to really go to work if I'm gonna be earning less than 40% of the originally promised amount.

Ideally, I'd like to work from home and get 66% of my current pay, so in the end I don't spend as much, and he doesn't have to pay as much. Seems like a win/win, I don't know why he's so hellbent on me sitting at his dumb office all day.

If such an arrangement works out, I'll just get another job and do his on a free schedule as kind of a freelancer.

I think the fag needed a bit of pushback all along, he's too much of a pussy to convince the investor to pay me, but he doesn't want to pay me out of his own pocket either. If he said, "I'll pay you X for this job", and then tries to find every excuse to pay me 60% of that, I say he's a blabbermouth who lies for convenience and has no honor.

I see. Yeah, cutting your pay by a third after two paychecks is bullshit. I can see where you're coming from.

The reason for wanting you to commute is psychological. It's a separation of work and home. If you're at a workplace, then the theory goes that you subconsciously go into work mode while if you're just at home then you're still in home mode and are more likely to slack off. Plus they can keep an eye on you and just come to your desk if they need to talk about something.

It's utter rubbish, in reality there's not really a true work mode. People just get bored and act up as much as they can get away with but that's the theory anyway.

Not to mention we lose 2 hours a day commuting.

Oddly enough most if not all corpo media outlets killed the story. ABC removed it from their site.

> PODGORICA — Montenegro on Thursday issued an international arrest warrant for a former CIA agent for alleged involvement in what the government said was a failed pro-Russia coup designed to prevent the Balkan country’s NATO membership.

>Montenegro’s state TV said that prosecutors want the extradition of Joseph Assad, a U.S. citizen born and raised in Egypt, on charges of participating in a criminal enterprise led by two Russian military spy agency officers.

>The Russians and 12 others, mostly Serbs, are on trial in Montenegro over the alleged election day plot in October 2016 that included plans to assassinate then-Prime Minister Milo Djukanovic, storming parliament and taking over power. The Russians are being tried in absentia.

>Montenegro’s prosecutors are investigating whether Assad was hired to help the 14 suspects on an escape plan. He was named during testimony by another former CIA agent at the trial.

>Assad has reportedly refused to testify and denied wrongdoing.

>Assad and his wife, Michele, both former U.S. counter-terrorism officers, gained international attention when U.S. media said they helped more than 100 Iraqi Christians to escape Islamic State group violence and flee to Europe as refugees in 2015.

>Assad’s whereabouts are currently unknown. He is said to be heading an Abu Dhabi-based security agency.

>Montenegro joined NATO last year despite strong opposition from its longtime Slavic ally Russia. Moscow has denied accusations that it took part in the plot.

You are going to end up in a hospital or jail.
The quicker this happens will be better for you.
You seek out to be punished, but sometimes when a screw is loose it will not go back the way it was suppose to.
Perhaps alcohol is not a good fit for your brain.
Have a shower and a eat some food, steal a bicycle and head somewhere warm before it is winter.

You know it's reallly easy to convince psychiatrists that you're merely "depressed" and not actually batshit insane?
It's really easy.

I'm not going to work on the text any more today. Almost at 200k characters.
I feel like a stereotypical aspiring literati. That is fragile and weak.
Let's hope my health doesn't give up on me again. It's probably just stress.

Picked up my new textbooks. Surprisingly enough the State Bureau managed to improve the quality a bit at first glance. Most people make it out to be a political issue, but honestly, even from a student's perspective they are shit, and I judge them based on that.

for school right?
I don't know what kind of subject but I can tell you that my history books that was used in 2011/12 even tho published in the 90s perhaps are shit tier compared to what you will have to read in university.
Even tho uni got restructured, it is still more demanding than school if you want to do it right. I got really irritated when I had a look into the school book some month ago and realized that this is what I was working with back then. Rough and broken down knowledge/methods. And I had history as a major in HS tho I had meh tier grades which completely switched when I started to really study a few years later

School books are a joke when you are good at what it is about.

>Are you the farmer Ernst?
yeah. harvesting is mostly done. very, very dry summer; early harvest. i'm helping on two different farms. one farmer still has some corn on the field. he has population corn instead of the usual hybrid corn (you can use the seeds to actually seed them; the hybrid corn seeds cannot be seeded, but they give ~20-30% more yield in "normal" years. this year the population corn did better; much more robust plant.)
but my work is mostly with animals on the one farm and on the other pretty much only cleaning and repairing old, overused machines.

today, tomorrow and the day after is "Kirmes" in our town. biggest festival of the year; everyone is coming "home" - even those not living in the town anymore, everyone drinking.

>Were the books at least factually correct

Well I haven't look thru it completely but it is more or less basic knowledge and the bigger streams of historic narration like "why did Weimar fail" and it's the birthday doom determinism which is not totally dated but there have been lot more newer research. I wrote a paper on how the biggest organization compared to the Roter Frontkämpferbund and the NSDAP, the Reichsbanner Schwarz-Rot-Gold which was a useful tool to the Weimar democratic government to spread democratic values. So Weimar was not torn appart between Commis and Nazis. They did create a messy trouble and it definitely had civil war character but I think the dimension is really different from any other country like Syria. I doubt Weimar was doomed from the beginning. After WW2 historians were fixated on why did Nazi Germany happend and they tried to explain it with the failing of Weimar and how the Nazis systematically destroyed it together with all the conservatives and red ones. I could imagine that people would have been get used to it actually. The stability it had in its middle years are a good proof. The crisis management was bad. The US with the New Deal had just like the Nazis which overtook many aspects of government issues/politics from Weimar btw a policy of deficit spending unlike Weimar authorities who went on austerity.

Yes, HS textbooks.
The political thing is somewhat complex, but I'll try to explain.
When the Government started restructuring the complete education system, they enacted a law that said teachers can only use textbooks that are approved of by a central committee.
Then they proceeded to not give permits for textbooks currently on the market, and only permit the textbooks that are produced by the Institution for Educational Improvement and Research, which is a governmental body.
The textbooks they produce are basically useless. I can't use them as textbooks, because they aren't well structured. They often have a really bad "Zusammenfassung" section that is completely useless and overly colourful even when produced for HS students. With the history books, the problem is that the secondary sources and the primary sources aren't well arranged in the book itself. With literature you had the problem that the commentary and the texts were next to each other, so if a teacher wanted the students to have a text while writing a text (Essentially write your own commentary of a given poem or short story), they'd need to print it out or find an older text-collection. (This has been fixed for HS books now, because I got both a textbook and a text-collection, independent of each-other)

Then there are the apparent plagiarisms surrounding the authorship and how they just cut parts from other textbooks. You get the idea.
And because it was done by a Government with a Supermajority, it's essentially a political issue.

Now I wouldn't give a rat's ass about any of this (I mean who has the time, willpower and nerves for politics?) if the books were actually good. This is my main problem. They've turned education into an us versus them political debate where the well being of the student is a third rate issue. The government says something, and the poseurs in the opposition act like dandies, which is they can only exist in absolute opposition and can only brainlessly attack whatever is currently being put forward by the government.
Whenever I criticise the system, I always feel obliged to say "as a student", because then it's clear that I'm not attacking it based on tabloid pieces, but on the grounds of suffering through every new experiment and idea they decide is for my own good.

I'm officially giving up on finishing it by the first school day.
I'm a whole chapter behind and it's just not wort the stress and the bickering with myself to do it. Honestly, I'd rather not make my health suffer for it. I could do caffeine rushes accompanied by half a painkiller for my head hurting, but that'd be reckless. Gonna translate the three pages in this chapter, then I'm going to take this day and the next one off. While I like being this reckless guy who's fighting against something indescribable through his work, it's just a bit too tiresome sometimes and too much over all. Going crazy or getting sick over something like this, while quite romantic, isn't really good for you in the long run.

I'm eagerly awaiting how my classes will be arranged. I'll have tons of time off during the day either way, but it's important to know just how much. This is the year when we choose which subjects we want to "specialize" in, so that we can pursue a higher level matura exam at the end of year 12.

I have a little notebook I kept.
I have a few jottings where I make notes about what to do to improve my life.
Notebook is 5 years old and unfortunately, no longer stinks of cigars(I stored it in a bad with cubans), In it I never complain or lament, I only give strategies on how to improve my life.
At the time, 5 years ago, I was working a job I hated for £18k p.a, I had started on 16k, and turned down a previous offer because I though 16k was too low.
I have mixed feelings, I also know how much I was drinking, but I remember keeping it to the weekend and losing 20kg and sparing in boxing, I also remember a LTR which nearly killed me and without I might have killed myself.
I have notes on saving money so I could go to HK for two, weeks and I am taking it page by page.
I threw away a big diary I kept at the time which had lots of maniacal drunk thoughts.

This post is verbose and unorganised just like my life.

However I just wanted to say I NEET'd for a few years, I drank for many more, I did a job which was beneath me until, by circumstance I was promoted, but not financially rewarded.

I have similar feeling about this job, anxiety and other concerns, but I have moved a long way in ten years, some small some big.

I think my parents will be proud, me I know I have to go back to school :(

I've just gravely insulted my father after he's returned from travelling. He brought home two bowls for me to use for tea, and asked "Can you find a use for these?", to which I autistically replied, "can't really", which saddened him greatly. His sadness saddened me in return.
He's trying so hard, yet we can't connect like father and son. My mother said during the holidays I'm a shit person to be around, and she is right, I know this because I spend 24 hours a days with myself.
It's just feels bad that I did this, but then again, what am I supposed to do with a really small bowl? It's not made for tea. This whole situation is overly contrived. "You might not want to take out and then pack away the proper teaset every time you have tea." I just don't get it, but even without any pushing I know I was in the wrong.

He’s almost never home. But when he is, it only creates tension. He gets irritated easily, so it’s not like I dislike it when he is away. It’s better if we don’t annoy each other much.
But I didn’t mean to cause emotional distress.
It’s almost like if we are strangers to each other sometimes. Every smalltalk we have is basically a giant play, where we play catch as we awkwardly pass the ball to one another, knowing that this conversation has no reason to happen because we don’t have much in common.

I am bad at math and logic nor can I program a single line of code.

I don't want to exactly code something but understand what is done on a macro level only if it is so interesting I would invest time to dive into the micro level e.g. programming but given my other interests it is unlikely

tip: find a book for kids, which explains it all. This particular book isn't for kids, but for a first-second year students. Actually explains everything pretty well. Don't know why they had to put this picture on cover. Highly recommend.
You don't have to understand it all. Modern computing is a wide area and nothing is simple. But it's created as a number of levels and black boxes. So you don't have to understand how everything works, just get it as it is.
I know the guy who worked in google as lead developer in a small team. In his area he was so better than me, basically in all coding, i was feeling as a dumb villager with him. Once he decided to learn hardware programming and his question were on 7 years old kid level. What is this word means, how this works in real life. When i said that its better to use numerous "GOTO" for his solution(blasphemy in the world of high level programmers) he assumed that i am trolling him. I am concluded that is better to be a top specialist in a small area, then to know everything a little as i do.

Good idea with the kids/elementary school book actually.

Yes, specialization is important somehow, you will find a specific knowledge growing which means expanding the borders to other areas just by building upon your already existing knowledge. Yet I want to fuse and cross knowledge which is also quite promising in whatever kind of reward I will get.
Specialization is just what our society is built upon and by now it got quite refined so ofc people like that developer have followed that logic and excel at it exaggerated: functionality perfectly fulfilled which out rules playing/accident. But he certainly will lack knowledge from far away areas which crossed with his own could lead to new thoughts/thinking.

I basically just hold up/favor the principle of interdisciplinarity. Which covers specialization but also tries to avoid getting trapped in blind spots or ending up getting blind sighted for other stuff that seems uninteresting at a first glance.

I keep having dreams about being back in school.
No, not college, middle school.
Best damn times of my life, even if they were actually miserable and depressive. I crave that sense of childhood peace and innocence that I had a taste of, but was denied.

And I miss my school mates. Not in the sense that I want to meet them, but in the sense that the people they were as kids, the people I knew them as, are gone forever.

I have those consistent locations that I revisit in my dreams, like an idealized, dream-verse version of my memories. The middle school, the peaceful hilly steppe during a road trip, the evening sunlit room where I am sitting as a child, and doing child things, just wasting time and playing with things. There is no sense of time in these places, the moments impressed in my mind stretch out forever, eternal peace.

Sames actually, I'd have to try really hard to remember most events of my childhood, and those that I do, are the unpleasant ones.

My dreams are less about memories, but more about a sense of "being in a place, experiencing the geist of being". A similar sense to being immersed in a video game. Just this feeling of "realness" of being.

Which is something I don't experience awake. Damn derealization. Awake, everything feels like an arbitrary collection of sensory inputs.

One only sold for credit, which you have to visit the bank for, and I didn't want to do that. It's only $10, I don't need to split it for 3 days.

So I called another internet shop, but they were far away, and their delivery to my place was $5.

I said fuck it, and decided to order, but they said the model I wanted is out of stock. I said fine, I'm tired of this bullshit, I'll buy a more expensive model. So in the end it ended up costing me $20.

Worst part, later I found out that the first internet shop actually had an instant buy option, but they hid it away in some UI clutter to trick me into getting credit.

Had my first proper school day this year.
Met my new literature teacher, the new German teacher, and the new librarian.
The literature teacher seems to know more than the previous one, a whole lot more. She started by quoting the Epic of Gilgamesh. I was honestly surprised. Not only honestly, but pleasantly. I have high hopes that I'll be able to perform well on the abitur with a teacher like this.
The new German teacher also knows Russian, and said she can help me with my translations, since she used to work at a publisher as a corrector for German. This should come in handy during my next project.
The new librarian seems fine. I told her about some of the traditions the previous librarian held, and some issues with both the collection and some of the equipment we have.
I like being a student. I like being there. Speaking with people there feels like a therapy session. It feels like they are interested in my projects and my future endeavours, which is nice, I don't want to feel alone.
The first week will be a bit lax, since the facultative classes aren't arranged yet, so I'll have 4 classes off. From the week after next week on, I'll have those classes too. I've picked History and Hungarian Grammar & Literature. Most of my classmates picked English, Math or Informatics. I stand alone, yet again.
Honestly, it's just feels nice to be "back in business".
Another thing I've found out is that while my PC isn't strong enough to play the episodes of Three Kingdoms I've downloaded, my phone is. The only issue is that I'll have to manually add the episodes and then delete them off, because they are too large. What a shame. I should read the books first. Read some of the first volume, and I'd say I wasn't ready to appreciate something like that a year ago. I'm ready now.
Over all, a pretty fine day.
Also got the books in the mail I've bought with my first pay-cheque.
I already read some of the Japanese book, really weird. Got interested in it because it's contemporary literature and the premise of colloquial speech seemed interesting. I've experimented with similar things myself.
And I thought if I'm going to read dubliners for the third time, I deserve a proper copy, so I spent extra on a hardcover.
But I've got Soul Mountain to finish first.

What? Nobody has 24h shifts. What dystopian world do you live in?

Also: I was meaning to meditate and pretty much immediately fell asleep for the next 25 minutes. I guess I needed that. Slept well, time to make diner :DDD

That sounds like a stupid capitalist rather than an evil one. People can work 4 hours at a time, 6-8 hours max, before they are tired and reduced to very low percentages of productivity.

Tbh, their jobs consist of putting money into the box and turning the computers on.

They're just an interface between the client and the computer, a glorified button.

So they don't need to do anything but sleep, and turn on a computer once in a while.

I'm being followed around by another weirdo who went to the same mental ward as me (at separate times).
He's obviously fucked in the heda and I'm his only "friend", but I don't like him. He's an egotistical narcissist with megalomania, which causes him to be a friendless cringelord, who, nonetheless, tries to present himself as some playboy hyperchad, when in reality he's an assclown.

I pity him and would like to help him, but it's really grating trying to make company and help someone who acts like (or believes that) he's the one helping me out with my schizo problems and acting as older brother/mentor when in fact, it's the opposite.

I'm not sure if I should tell him to fuck off or keep up the facade. He's an unpleasant person overall, tbh.

i bought these fuckers some ~6 years back. they were around 120€. the "normal" in-ears do not fit with my ears. i need those silicon forms; they are easy to change and cheap to replace. (those are the first things to break)

how much did you spend for your earphones over the years? maybe it's cheaper to buy good stuff ones in the long run?

They weren't bad, it's just that I'd accidentally tear them or lose them.

They were cheap, but also sounded really nice, and were very light. Most importantly, they had a frequency response curve I liked (slight bump in midbass, no harsh highs), and knew the measurements of.

I'm kinda autistic about audio, I don't like buying something I don't know the measurements of.
It's like 20 USD * 2 (second time I didn't really re-buy them, just exchanged for free under 1 year warranty).

For a $20 buck earphone that satisfies all my audio needs, it was a great buy and served me well tbh.

Never buying anything from local retailers again.
It's aliexpress now.

They have the wrong picture in the catalogs and no refunds, I have to wait 2 days for my phone arrive.
I didn't want to wait a month for the headphone and smartphone, but next time I'll just order from china.

That weirdo dumbass obsessed with me called me again, wants me to visit him for BBQ and shit.

I don't want to go to, but he sounded desperate, said he called everyone and nobody wants to go.

I regret the day when I decided to engage in a conversation with him, since that day he has latched on to me like wet toilet paper.

The first week is almost over.
Had my first ever Ethics class. We compiled news headlines, and examined if they are positive or negative. The teacher was really neutral.
>Two Russians detained in Estonia because they might be spies
>"Well, you could consider this either negative or positive"
I still have my feels. Maybe I'm fearing for my views, even if a lot of them are not political in nature.
I also found the "lost" copy of the Nibelungenlied at the library. It wasn't lost. It was just up on a really high shelf with other books that were printed by the same company in the series.
Wrote a letter to the retired librarian, since we've been looking for it since the end of last years first term. It was one hell of an adventure.
This is going to be a really easy year I think.

Talk incessantly, complain like there job is super complicated, do no actual work unless forced, flirt with potential customers and facebook 70% of the time, although now they usually play games or use other social apps on their phone.

So to get a sick day in HK, all you need to do is visit a Dr wait time is about 2 hr in total and pay 25-50e to get a 3 day sick note, 3 days is the max, I only required one.
He gave me about 50 tablets, I took not a single one.
Interesting, However general wait time is 1 hr to see a doctor much improvement from 3 weeks to see a GP, or 3-4 hrs in a walk in clinic or ER, walk-ins tend to not see a doctor anyway.
Only reason I need to see a doctor is for tablets, oh well 33e well spent.

My own diagnostics was insomnia from alcohol withdrawals.

You and me both.

It must be the bored, indfferent eyes. My schizo US penpal also once posted his mugshot, and you could immediately tell he was schizo.

It was the lack of any narrative in the photo. When normies take selfies, they try to frame it in some kind of story ABOUT themselves. "Look how cute I am", "I am at the park", etc.

When a schizo like me or him takes a photo, we do it solely to convey the geometry of our face. No narrative, just pure data of what our faces look like. I suspect it's because schizos have depersonalization, and don't feel emotionally connected to their bodies. They don't think their body represents them, what represents them is their internal world. So in taking such a photo, he literally objectified his body.

His body, to him, was not symbol for his identity, but rather an object that his identity happens to occupy.

Such cases.

I know that feel. I think it has more to do with hair type though and probably the wrong skull shape or something. It is also increasingly tempting to wear a yamulke around strangers just because I like the complete efficiency of dealing with the balding question. I cannot think of any better solution than a kipa. Shaving is not an option. Unless I find a way the hobo/terrorist look can work in a career. Cult leader sounds decent.
