Hello John.

Lately I've been bored with lots of things. All the other chans are either dead or so scandalous that I can no longer enjoy them. All of the discord groups I've joined to pass time as well have also gone down the drain. I've tried getting into things like weightlifting, art, music, and literature, but without people to discuss these topics with, they aren't worthwhile in my opinion. If you could direct me to a place with active people to discuss these hobbies with, please do.


John Smith 18/02/19(Mon)08:05 No. 46436

Weightlifting, obviously you should join a gym. Hanging out there long enough should pay off in the form of someone contacting you. Literature, go to Barnes n Nobles and order a coffee and read an important book. People talk a lot less here than other places but you should still have a chance at meeting someone.

Art and music, go to a local dive bar's next show. Should be some cool kids there if you like/find punk music to go see.

All of these might not even demand that you start the conversation so they're pretty good options. Sit at the bar in the bar. Stand by the window in the gym. Hump one of the dancers at the show. Point to the food at BnN and ask how it is.

On the internet though, I'm not sure we're even allowed to talk anymore. Everyone just uses Facebook, and no one uses it to have a conversation. I hear snapchat is big, but all I've seen from it is people making dumb faces.

With all due respect, John and John, there are in fact plenty of places to talk. You observe that big websites like Facebook and Snapchat monopolize people's interactions at the expense of the variety of smaller platforms out there, yet at the same time, the there's a kernel of truth to the fairytale idea that smaller sites only die when you stop believing in them. I hope I'm not too presumptuous to believe that I'm not the only John who might want to listen to your opinions on some of these topics.

Good evening John.
I wanted to share a recurring dream, hoping you could make sense of it.
Although it slightly varies every time, I am a hundred percent sure, that I only imagining having this dream in regular, although distant intervals.

It starts with me being chased on some kind of vehicle, once I remember it being on a bike, last night it was in a car.
This chase partakes in the street and surrounding where i grew up most of my life. The instance in pursuit with me is never visible, or lets say recognizable.
The transition to the second part is unclear, however I end up standing next to a small lake, standing on green grass. Just next to the shore is a huge metal boxed shape structure. Recalling it from my mind, it is about as high as a three story building and very long, id say about a hundred meters. There are rocks in the water, so I can jump from one to the other, until I reach the object. There is an opening which I enter. Usually as soon as this happens, the urge and tense feeling from the pursuit subsides and I am calm and the joy of adventure starts arising.
Inside there is water, up to my ankles, but above there are many smaller metal boxes, rather narrow bridges, seemingly randomly placed. Usually I just dream of exploring all the rooms and places.
Last night I dreamed of holding my cat in my arms when "arriving" at the shore of the lake. It seemed very stressed, as he would be outside, just like me, even after entering the structure. I put it the cat down after climbing some stairs. For some reason I then could not move anymore, the cat walked off. I was just standing there for what seemed an eternity, I was able to see rust forming on the metal hull. Nothing ever happened. The cat did not return. Eternal silence until I woke up.

The only other recurring dream I know I have is me standing in the flat of my grandparents, which have died in the meantime. I look out of the window and see a person looking at me which a face that makes me instantly wake up. I can never actually see the face long enough to remember its details.

Can you help me interpret this? If not feel free to share your dreams, John.

I have recurring dreams as well John. But usually only on evenings when I take an early nap. I'm usually somewhere that I have no recollection of being, and usually a large house. There will be people who know me, but I have no idea who they are, as I haven't seen nor met them irl. They don't seem to mind me, as it appears I am living or at least staying with them, and the floors are usually wet. When I get ready to go out, I cannot find nor remember where my car is, and I seem to panic a bit-then it's time to wake up. How I see people I've never seen before, and stay in a place I've never seen nor been before, but feels like home, I don't know.

At least it's not the stuck in school in my underwear and can't remember my locker combination dream.

I always have weird dreams taking naps during the day. Also lucid sometimes.
The wet floors are interesting.

John, I have no idea what the wet floors mean, but it seems like it's just water and needs to be mopped up. There's never any pools or shower/baths involved either. I have no fear of water either, so this is a mystery to me as much as anything.
One more thing though about my dreams-they always happen during the 8 o'clock hour. If an evening nap, they'll wake me up when they finish. When I was able to sleep until 9 in the morning (can't anymore due to work), they hit in the 8 am hour as well. So my rem cycle does not hit during the middle of sleep/naps, usually toward the end. Go figure.

Dear John

Let us write a story together.
I am pretty confident, that we can create something great together.

I shall start:
John shut down his computer and stared at the now black screen in front of him for what seemed ages.

As John ponders, his head became heavier and heavier. Swaying gracefully from side to side, mindlessly John stumbles towards his laundry to find his coat. Amongst the pile of clothes, John found his prized possession.

It was his sister's, and a friend long passed. John was always quiet, so much so it led others to a distant curiosity, a smothering, vacant aspiration to understand; a disruptive stillness, and a fear of the calm. Distance was routine, but it wasn't people John gave a shit about. It was his sister. The only one who cared to talk, and a friend in spite of silence.
When the fever took her, John felt only more of the same. He hadn't seen her in years, and he never spoke over the phone. It wasn't principle, it was mindless, it was familiar. Now his sister was gone, and he didn't care. Through the haze of this vacancy grew a bitter seed, and a loneliness that stuck, "I'm a fucking monster."

He'd kept the horse for so long because it made him sad, and it still did. Softly, John smiled.

I just realized I forgot to refill my phone and went the past 3 days without noticing. The alarm clock functioned though and I use it mostly for that.

John Smith 18/02/02(Fri)12:50 No. 46418

The alarm application on my phone requires one to specify the day for which the alarm is to be set. Failure to specify it leads to it assuming that the alarm is for 6 days in the future. This... feature has put me in unfortunate situations, especially when I am too tired to remember to set the day.

Do you set your alarms for 6 days in the future, John?

I apologize for making you wait on my reply John. My phone is old, actually a cheap flip phone, so I have never had to deal with any sort of "app". This actually gives me a slight feeling of satisfaction.
People can text me all they want, I cannot read them as the screen has been cracked for the past 5 years. More satisfaction.
I can only set the alarm to go off 5 times, so this gets set each night when I go to bed. I don't even know if I will be around 6 days in the future John. I hope so though, as I do have a vacation next month.

I actually took off tomorrow for the same reason. How humorous.

Seattle rain is a disappointment. For a few weeks in fall and sometimes late winter we get nonstop rain which is great, but then the rain just kinda gives up and only comes round every so often. Summers are completely dry. It's also usually light, so you can't even hear it on the windows.

I hear Ireland gets a lot of rain.

John Smith 18/01/23(Tue)03:11 No. 46405

Dear John,

It has only snowed here twice this year. It is unseasonably dry.

I do like the rain though. We could use more of it.

Yours truly,

John Smith 18/01/23(Tue)03:12 No. 46406

P.S. I like to just sit and watch it rain. I also like to just sit and watch it snow. Weather is so nice to watch.

Today, John, I continued my struggle of trying to make my two pet ferrets interact on friendly terms. While usually social animals the newer creature is having trouble learning that gentle nibbles are a sign of playful and are not, in fact, vicious attacks designed to maim and kill. The screams it gives off when running away scared are most disconcerting but given that ferrets have the jaw strength to bite a finger clean off at the knuckle I suppose it’s fear and self-sense of dragility are not without merit.

John Smith 18/01/22(Mon)06:52 No. 46402

Fragility. Not dragility. I have also yet to get used to this phone’s keyboard. Another struggle I continue on with.

John Smith 18/01/23(Tue)03:06 No. 46403

Dear John,

I also ride the bus. It takes about an hour for me to get to work in the morning. It takes me about another hour to get home at night. I have to admit, however, that I transfer to another bus in the morning. My bus driver's name is Frank.

Yours truly,
