What is your worst irrational fear, John?

Mine is the fear of complete isolation. Quite odd considering I'm an introvert.

Yours Truly,
John

Yep that's all pretty normal. Took me years to be able to vent in front of others, would instead keep it to myself. A brooding sort of hatred develops, symptoms that beta males are used to but men like us, John? Men who are capable, know they are, but are also intelligent enough to be aware of all potential consequences branching off from such confrontational behavior?
We're a different sort, brother, so don't hold back. You don't earn respect, John. You command it.

Over-flowing toilets. Like, when the water is just below the rim of the bowl? It scares me. Really.

Dear Johnny,

I consider myself lucky to have none, though I do have fears that are rational. I will fear things such as carcrashes and my light chest pains, though ultimately I only fear bigger than life sorts of things, maybe not actually in the scope of rationality. The concept of space for example is terrifying but beautiful to me, I don't want to die to a black hole but I do want to see it before I die as it is theorized you wouldn't just die immediately but you would see a lightshow before it finally sucked all the oxygen from earth where then I would die. Things such as a pulsing star potentially emitting a ray so strong it obliterates the earth does not scare me as that would be instant though a meteor I would probably spend inside maybe even on here away from some madness. Death itself does not scare me but the concept that I wouldn't feel like I have seen everything I should have before dying does, like I was put here to appreciate everything and squandered that.

There's nothing about having a diploma that makes me feel particularly superior to someone who doesn't. Rarely do any of the degrees have a direct correlation with knowing what you're doing, least of all in this modern age where lots of information is freely available over the Internet.

I remember skipping straight from high school algebra to college calculus without precalculus in between, so now I'm using Khan Academy to refresh my knowledge of the portions of math that I'd carelessly breezed past. I'm pleasantly surprised with how deep trigonometry can be.

John,

I'm off to university again, later this week. I probably won't have much time to write you, but I'm not concerned. Things seem to stay the same with you, no matter how long it's been since the last time we talk. It's very comforting, in a way.

I know I probably tell you too often, but it really is crazy to think just how long you've been in my life, and I appreciate you a lot. Stay comfy and safe, I'll be back again in a while.

Best Wishes,
--John

Recently my paychecks have been somewhat lackluster.

Maybe I should ask for a raise.

I got a raise recently. Now I make $10.50 an hour. Good thing I live in a rural area, or else I'd need a second job just to live.

John,
Thank you for your reply. I've asked for more shifts and am working overtime for the next two weeks, hopefully I will be able to keep up.

Sincerely,

John

I think I should go to bed, but the mattress just isn't very comfy. So I'd rather sit here and waste time.

Does anyone else find the audio here relaxing?

John,

though I cannot speak for the others here, I can state with certainty that I find the audio here to be relaxing, yes.

Perhaps a new mattress is in order for you.

Have you slept well in the past few weeks?

John Smith 17/08/09(Wed)06:34 No. 46174

Hello John

It's rather soothing. I cut Alcohol out of my life rather suddenly so when I'm about to go to bed this tune helps me settle down. Have you ever tried drinking hot tea? Chamomile may help you relax even if the bed isn't the most comfy.

John

I got into a fight several days ago. Some gentlemen took issue with a gesture I made in a parking lot, a misinterpretation as it was towards my female coworker whom I've no intention of courting. Afterwards, when I left the store, he confronted me. I threw 78 cents worth of various coins at him while questioning his sanity in regards to my "finger guns."

I lost, but he grabbed my shirt and then my leg during the proceedings. The following blows to my guard and the back of my head did not hurt, and I'm completely unharmed save two knuckles having been scraped.

Looking back, I had much more fun then I've had in a long time, and it made me hope you were enjoying your summer, too.

Wishing you the best,
-John

John Smith 17/07/23(Sun)08:09 No. 46151

John, are you telling me you spent the better part of an argument throwing coins at a man? In hindsight, your weaponized currency is probably the reason it escalated to a fight. Regardless though, I'm glad to hear you had a good time. It's been too long since I've had a good scrap--they become less and less common, the more mature company you keep.

John Smith 17/07/29(Sat)18:50 No. 46163

I haven't ever been in a fight in my life save for a very few short lives spars.
I'm happy to hear you weren't hurt, John and I have to admit I admire people who can casually get into fights as I have huge mental block towards it

Yesterday I was going through the laundry in my dryer and found my earbuds. I thought they would be dead from the water and the plastic was a bit melted, but they still work. Anyone else have luck like this?

I had the same thing with an mp3 player.

Same thing happened to me as well, though they were inside my jacket's pocket.
Thought they were a goner for sure, yet they're still working fine.

Computer science or electrical engineering. What should i study? What would be my job prospects in both fileds?.I live in Estonia so I`m in bad luck because we dont have a Sillicon valley here and there is very little manufacturing going on, so I guess i`d better choose something completely different(like healthcare or the army), but I really want to choose either CS or EE. I`m not chosing computer enginering because I think that it offers much less jobs than software development(especially web dev), while with EE i`m thinking that i could come in handy in a variety of places, not to mention I could just start out as a simple electrician with a degree(thus more qualified and more promising career). But i`m scared to take EE because it`s engineering and I`m afraid I will suck at it, because it`s kinda hard right? Also there are little engineering jobs here, but more front end web dev jobs(which I sincerely hate).
So please help decide my future because I do hae to make a decision fast and I dont want to fuck up my life. Thank you!

Isn't that true for every aspect of life?

CS and EE tend to attract people who aren't socially gifted.

John,

Things are getting difficult lately. I don't want out or anything drastic like that, but this overbearing feeling of dread/melancholy is really weighing on me. I'm fighting to get over it and see my situation as a good one again, but once I get into this hole it's hard getting out of it again.

I'm very thankful for both of you taking the time to write me. I'll work up the courage and plan to see a doctor soon. The way it is around here, with a little luck our letters will still be around then, and I'll try to write back and let you know how I am.

Best,
John

Johns,

I went to the doctor and they had me run some tests. Now results are saying some enzyme or another in my liver is out of whack. I have an appointment on monday, and a referal to a specialist soon after that.

None of this is helping much with my mood. I'm fighting it, but I can feel myself slipping back into the mindset I was in back in March. I'm scared I'm going to go in and get diagnosed with something deadly, cancer or something. Please keep me in your prayers.

Best,
John

I had a date with a girl yesterday. But, like every other date I've had in the past seven or eight years, it ended miserably. I've given up on trying to be interesting. Life is just /eh/.

But in other news, I am drinking Diet Dr. Pepper.

I never have acquired the taste for diet drinks. The aftertaste of the fake sugar still puts me off.

Cherry Dr Pepper, however, is something I appreciate because it very nearly approaches the flavor of Cheerwine. Another convincing Cheerwine imitation is Rockstar Revolt Black Cherry.

I feel sorry that it took you 7-8 years to give up, but I'm not sure what's worse: Giving up only after a couple of years or at least putting in the effort like you did.

I hope you enjoyed your Dr. Pepper.
