Yeah.. this "zomg the forums are falling apart" nonsensical bs is lulzy.

This forum is running... MUCHHH smoother and far less spammy than a couple years ago. I'd even go as far to say that the audio forum is very possibly the best run forum of any of the NG public forums.

Spend a minute in general and try to say anything is wrong here lol. I've been very happy with the goings of things here recently for the most part.

Bitching
Ah fucking shit. I spend all this time trying to carefully guide a song of mine towards a DECENT score, and some asshole destroys several days worth of work. It's too fucking hard to get recognized 'round here sometimes.

Ah well.

More bad news

Well, I just got a letter saying that loan papers never went through for my college tuition... That means I'm about $8800 down the hole right now. Beautiful.

On a path of self destruction

I have no idea why..maybe lack of sleep but I've never slept much but I've been fucking myself up the last couple days!
I took out the garbage and somehow ended up missed the last step on my way down a got a nice little (by little i mean my knee and half my shine) road burn. I cut nearly cut my thumb off last night while making dinner, luckily got away with cut..pretty deep and painful though. And this morning I took my dog to the doggy park to play with her little buddies and went through the little dog tunnel with her (lol she was too afraid to by herself) and stood up too soon at the end and hit my head on the concrete slab.

Someone is using voodoo on me i know it. I've never been this clumsy in my life lol.

maybe you just need to have more B vitamins in your diet or something or start drinking energy drink to improv your agility and dexterity.

if i drink to much coffee i get all wired and sometimes clumsy.
sleep helps as well

FUCKING TOE

I'm going to be honest, I'm not the best on my feet, so I was just fucking around. So I was playing soccer in the backyard with some of my house mates. I was in goal and was doing pretty well to not let up too many shots. After a while I traded out and started to kick the ball around. I really wasn't doing too bad, but towards the end of the little scrimmage we had, I kicked the ground REALLY hard. Now before anyone calls me an idiot (I know I am), the backyard isn't exactly even. It's full of divots, and holes and what have you.
It just so happens that the ball was rolling past a hole. I went to go kick it and hit the ground. My toe is now black and blue and hurts like a mother fucker.

TL;DR I kicked the ground hard and jammed and or fractured my toe.

Just thought I'd share my dumb experience.

I'm too serious.

Lately, I've been noticing that I have close to zero tolerance for people being retards/people having fun.

For example, I posted on the wall of a facebook group where they used 'U' instead of 'you'. I can't stand people letting down on their proper English like that for some reason. People on the group instantly got pissed at me and told me I needed to take a chill pill.

Now with this 'crisis' (lol) I just have the feeling like all that off-topic derailment in typical threads shouldn't be allowed. It just annoys the hell out of me.

Do you guys have any tips for me to gain some sense of humour and/or open up for some 'normal' fun again? I see the internet as serious business for real I think, and that's probably the problem. AFL, HELP.

Take a couple days off from the internet. Go out and spend time with friends. They'll loosen you up. I have the same problem from time to time. Although it might be easier for me because I live with my friends. But give it a try, I've always found that to help.

They're all at school during the day, and my school is in the evening. I have nothing else do next to internet/computer. The people I consider as real friends are pretty much only contactable over the internet for me anyway... It's just that my world I constantly think it is so different to the things other people would talk about. When I hear casual chat about for example celebs, sports or any of such, I just get the feeling 'I can't believe you guys talk about such insignificant things'.

Perhaps I should just go out on my own and go jogging around here?

it's all diet bro. try eating an apply for breakfast every day first thing when you wake up, and see if that makes you feel any better. sense of humour is directly related to diet

I assume you mean an apple :p. Well, good, I'll do that, but you're not taking away my cereal. :p

it's probably a passing phase, when a girl become a woman, they have this thing called "PMS" about a week every month. They then bleed immensley out of their vagina, but they don't die from it. They do however get extremley cranky and bitchy, and that's most likley what happened to you.

There is no known cure.

Lol, that should make me laugh, and there's the problem.
Also, I hope it didn't seem I meant that people having fun are retards, as I didn't.

Don't forget that it's important to talk about insignificant things (lol, contradiction). I mean, of course there are things much more important than celebs and stuff, but you should really try to just chat along and make jokes. It makes you feel better when people listen to you and/or laugh about your jokes, even though you're talking about insignificant things.

Perhaps I should just go out on my own and go jogging around here?

Well, that's a good idea. Jogging clears your head.
Maybe it's also a good idea to join some kind of club or something, idk. Just a suggestion.

The thing is that I'm absolutely not interested in any of that stuff, which makes me unable to chat along. And the things that I have on my mind are not to be talked with with other people, as that's a bit too 'weird' for them...

I've been thinking about that, but somehow I always got bugged off (if you even say it like that) for some reason. Plus I don't exactly have spare money at the moment.

MICHhimself for mod sigs

Would you guys mind taking them down? It gives some people the idea I'm really going for it to be modded or something, why in fact, I am not at the moment. You all want it more than I do, seriously.

Why so serious

Start drinking!

No? Okay. Fine. But do go out somewhere, find some peeps to chill with. Go get lost in the woods with someone. Tip some cows. Something you don't normally do.

The 'someone' is the problem. This neighbourhood is filled with a bunch of elderly people who do nothing but mowing their lawn and gossiping about stupid shit.

Go to whatever norway has instead of malls. Like a snowbank or something, find some guys your age.

I only like being around a select few of my age. Mostly I find them very childish, and I guess that's part of my problem. Blegh, whatever.

I think it's time for you to Grow down. Just remember man, life is WAY too short to take anything too seriously. You need to live it up while you still can. I used to be like that. WAY too condescending about everything. Eventually i just learned how to see color again. (metaphor i'll explain in a second) It's absolutely changed my life. I mean, if i can go through being rich to homeless twice in a matter of 2 years, and still enjoy life like i never have before, (Without drugs) there's got to be SOMEthing going on.

As far as seeing color goes. It's an old game my mom used to play with me.

Basically in the car she would call out a color. And I would have to name off all the things that were said color.

She'd say red and all of a sudden the world seemed to be overflowing with red things. Signs, cars, buildings, clothes. Everything was red. But then, in almost an instant, she'd throw purple out there and BAM! Purple everywhere.

In retrospect, it wasn't about the colors, it was about teaching my mind to focus on certain things.
Like with the colors, as I would focus on the color red, all i could see was red things, or purple , or blue depending on the choice she made. When I focus on the exciting wonderous things in life, and don't even give the negatives a second glance, it's very easy to forget the annoying, bad, and obnoxious things in this world even exist.
(inb4 ZOMG you need to be aware of your surroundings and whats going on in your world) You can still pay attention to what people are saying and doing, but it makes it very easy to not get caught up when someone makes a mistake or does something stupid :)

ANYWAY :D That's my 2 cents. Take it for what it's worth and give me the change if you'd like.

Beggars can't be choosers.

If you're not willing to sacrifice, then stop moping around. YOU chose what to do with YOUR life NOT other people.

A great way to lighten up:

Watch a Godfrey Ho movie. Just pick any one, they are all classics.

Here, start with Catman: Lethal Tracks. It's all on Youtube:

Part 1

It'll get you in touch with your silly side.

oh silly mich - you're surrounded by elderly people - and you havent gone elderly people tipping? It's great- they don't get back up - or they flail around and mumble about useless stuff!

Or they break a hip..

the key is to see humour in pretty much everything and twist it to your advantage - and if that dosn't work - twist conversations so that they turn gay - it's quite simple - I mean look at me - ive been wonderfully immature ever since I've been on this site - and you'll be hard pressed to find some prude that disapproves of my actions.. that isn't a mod :P

Mmm, caffiene

I haven't slept for 2 days lol, I've been busy. I spent the first half of this night feeling like I was about to pass out, trying to work on the bibliography for a research paper (yawn) I've been downing can after can of Dr Pepper with no effect, until all of a sudden after an hour of blasting trance music to help me wake up, I feel a second wind and yay the caffiene is kicking in finally! :D The tingling in my brain feels awesome and I can actually think and see straight! MOAR!
