Confession: I accidentally looked into a thread I made a year ago that I promised I wouldn't visit ever again because of egosearch. I only saw one post, but I still feel like I let down all those people who posted in it and then forgot about it.

Last night should have been a happy evening, instead it was one of my most miserable experiences in a long time. I wound up crying myself to sleep. And all because I couldn't keep my mouth shut.

Last night my friend was talking to her friend over MSN on my laptop and she decided to turn the webcam on. She was telling me about her friend and saying really nasty stuff about her. I didn't tell her the mic was on and her friend could hear everything she said.

It's a question of purity vs. control. When you play video games, do you play them with nothing but official patches, et cetera? Or do you install mods? Do you consider it to be your game, or the designers? If you want to go through life with the gifts of your genetics and environment, that's a completely acceptable way of doing things. If you want to chemically hack your body to adjust your user experience, that's fine too.

I like your analogy. I think I have an addictive personality. I really like being fucked up (like now) and I don't ever really want to be sober. I've smoked weed three times today and it's 9:11 PM. If I had pills I would take them. It's kinda weird being able to logically conclude that drugs are bad, but still want them. Oh well, I'm just stoned and rambling. And everyone thinks I don't have issues anymore haahhahaa.

In 6 days I'm going to be 18.
Now; that means I'm going to be an adult. This thought pleases me, as I've always been a bit of an adult, and despite my circumstances, in fact because of my circumstances, I've always been treated as a child.
But here's the thing; in 6 days I'm no longer going to be a child, but I've never been one, I never had the chance....
I've always been stuck in this gray zone; being an adult treated like a child.
And soon I shall never have the chance....

The only nice bit about turning 18 was being able to get a phone contract in my own name. (Sorting that out was the only interesting thing I did on my 18th birthday.) I'm 20 in a bit over a month, which is pretty scary, but I do know that it's going to be as much as an anticlimax as turning 18 was. I figure I don't need to even particularly consider growing up until I finish uni.

Recently, before my 17th birthday, I was kinda worried too. In less than a year I'll be considered an adult as well, and I'll have to sue my dad and everything. I'd rather not think about that kind of stuff.

Now, I've no idea if I've felt like a kid enough. Maybe it's just easy to oversee those moments. It probably is. It's never too late to have fun, though, and that's all that matters =)

Maybe you need to reconsider what you think defines feeling like a child. I mean, you must've felt like a child sometime in your life? I can't imagine you haven't. I don't really know how I define how it feels to be like a child, but it's something like innocent fun or play (which I should have more often).

I really empathise with you, here. This was actually something I was thinking about the other day, as I was removing my one surplus piercing for work reasons. I skipped childhood more or less, and after a couple years my one futile attempt at teenagerdom is also having to go [even if I did try that in my 20s]. I think.. well. Being the perpetual responsible one [or: whatever appropriate word you feel applies to you] isn't something you should regret. I do wish I could have had my childhood back to do child-y things [less so my teenage years, wouldn't take them back for any amount of money] but at the same time a lot of what makes me feel as though I was never really young is kind of what makes me me, it's a lot of who I am and often, as I find when I'm talking to other people, it's a lot of what people admire about me. You could well be in the same position. As long as you can have fun, and enjoy yourself, don't look back in sadness at a lost youth. Because, basically, you're probably going to be able to rock the whole "being an adult" gig, which is probably the more important thing to be good at.

I just called one of my friends up for comparing a facebook app to rape and I know she's going to make a big deal out of it and say I'm over reacting and being over sensitive or it's just a joke or just a word or whatever and I don't think I really want to be having that argument with her and I know if I have to I'm just going to get really really angry at her and that'll lead to the rest of my friends taking her side and I don't want that to happen... I thought my friends had more common sense than this.

Edit: Oh good, she's chosen to completely ignore my comment in favour of telling me some random gossip about two people I don't even speak to at all... Should I be trying to explain my point or do I just ignore it? I don't think I'm a very good feminist sometimes...

Edit2: I've now got friend number 2 full on arguing with me and she's so fucking stubborn I know that I'm not going to get through to her. I'm all shaky and angry and I think I just want some hugs.
And I've just lost 2 friends. I wonder how long before the rest will follow (everyone in this group of friends kind of does everything these two want)...

You don't know this girl. She is the most stubborn person I know (and I know a fair few stubborn people). She's also of the opinion that her opinion is the only right opinion and is a master at making it look like everybody but her is in the wrong. I'm probably actually better off without her I just hate losing friends.

She used to be better, we just kind of drifted apart a lot when we both went to uni. We both changed and that means we're not so good at being friendly towards each other any more, but that group of friends pretty much made me feel like I was an alright person when it seemed like nobody else liked me, so it's kind of hard thinking that they won't want to see me any more.

I've been seriously stressed out lately. I've been on unemployment for a year (to the week), with no chance of a job on the horizon. I've been contemplating joining the military or going back to school because I'm getting jittery from doing NOTHING for the past year. I've looked at everything I need to do to be able to go back to school and it's just.. so daunting. I don't really know where to start and I'm already getting overwhelmed.

Add to that I haven't really had sex with my so in forever (try like... 3 times in 6 months). Neither of us has been in the mood because of stress due to unemployment and not having money and trying to make ends meet. (Not to mention the state of CT screwing us over on food stamps..)

I really just... I don't know what to do. I kinda just want a nice heavy drink and sleep through the rest of.. I dunno what. Week? Month? I don't even know.

You've probably thought about it already, but what about voluntary work? It's a great way to get to do something and help people, so it'll likely make you feel better. It adds up to your resume as well, so it'll increase your chances at getting a job. Might be an idea =)

I discovered an achy, almond-sized lump on the side of my neck.
I'm not _all_ that worried about it, I mean, it's probably nothing(although of course cancer and death and all that jazz is always somewhere in my mind when such things occur), but I just realized that I'm really aversive of telling anybody about it. Even my closest friends, even my mother. Heck, even random internet people.

If this happens to actually be something worth worrying about/a thing worth worrying about occurs in the future....what will I do?

My Aunt was 40 when she had her daughter. And she adopted another kid several years after that. You have more time left for this than you've been around so far. I'm usually not big on optimism, but in your case I think it's warranted.
