Wait, first time in a library ever?


first time studying in a university library. I've been in them before but not for any longer than an hour to eat something or just walk around.

Jesus, how big are your libraries? Even the ones up in Auckland and down in Wellington (largest NZ city and capital respectively) are only big enough to have a cafe outside somewhere. And then not to mention every library being all "No food inside book house, bro."

Welp. I have been feeling a mix of depressed/anger for the past month or two, and I don't know why. I can kinda point out things that anger me, but I feel like there not the reasons.

So, me and my best friend used to be close for a couple years now. Talked to each other every single day. Then he gets this factory job, and just stops talking to me. This went on for about a month. He has time to play games with my cousin every day, and take people out to dinner, but not to even talk to me. Then he gets fired, and he suddenly has all the time in the world to talk to me, like nothing happened. So part of me is pissed because I basically lost my only "real" friend. (But honestly, he's been making me mad for far too long).

Then there's the girl that I've had a crush on for years. I basically tried my everything to get close to her. It's kinda hard to get close when she can't hold up a conversation for more than 2 texts before she doesn't respond, and she doesn't respond when I ask her if she wants to hang out. I'm kinda pissed at myself for trying for too long. But I can't move on. Every time I basically move on, she ends up texting or telling me something that makes me fall for her all over again.

I'm also mad at is the fact that my mediport was giving me crap (i.e. not working and causing some serious friggin pain). Get home from the hospital where we had professionals access it, and what do you know. I p*** out a kidney stone (Which if you don't know, HURTS LIKE HELL). And then a few days after that, I started getting some serious pain in my tooth. And so on Friday, I get to go to the dentist where I (most likely) have to get it removed or filled. Plus I might end up getting braces because of my fugly teeth.

So, slap all that on the fact that I still can't find a job, still don't have a girlfriend, have no idea what I want to do with my life, and don't know where to get started. And sadly, the only thing that keeps me going these days is the next big video game release to keep me occupied for a single day.

TL;DR: Life sucks. /rant

Edit: Alright. I think I'm finally starting to feel better, regardless of the dentist tomorrow at 8 in the damn morning. Because what's more enjoyable than a healthy breakfast with a dose of needle-in-the-gums. Sarcastic bullcrappery aside, I started to think of good memories last night, which made me feel good in the morning, which made me message my friend and tell him I'm sorry for being an ass. And I also seen that one girl I like created a new facebook account and didn't send me an invite or anything, so now that I know she most likely doesn't even acknowledge I exist anymore, I decided to finally move on. And it feels so, so good.

Have to write a 5-page short story for my apocalyptic fiction's final exam.

Anyone want to toss me some ideas of tropes to parody or something? Someone mentioned what I thought was a pretty good one (every time they find some kind of canned fruit, it's always peaches) but I'd feel bad for taking that idea and running with it.

I'd like you to meet my good friend TV Tropes. He's nice and wants to help!

that's like me and Cracked. And that's how I used to be with college humor, until they became too mainstream *sunglasses*

Cracked is a website that has articles both utterly hilarious and also boring as hell. I basically just wait for someone to link something so they can do the work distinguishing between the two.

It can definitely be hit or miss. I think it's more reliable to just follow certain writers on Cracked.

Yeah, that's a good point. The reason there's such a big range is because there are so many writers.

My length requirement is between 1125 and 1375 words. I've already hit that length and I haven't even sent our hero on his foraging mission yet.

I hate writing :x

EDIT: So who wants to read my first attempt at creative writing in years?

Hit me. 'Twas already submitted and now that I've had more than a night to think about what I was writing, I think it's rubbish. This is what I get for waiting until the last minute.

Old habits die hard, it seems.
