    I'm feeling really really down right now...i've just had a shitacular week-two weeks...the first two weeks in October always really suck for me for various reasons...Two years ago, it was my girlfriend at that time (also the first real girlfriend I had ever had) cheating on me...me catching her and confronting her, denying it and dumping me just a few days before my birthday...the moment October started this year, i've lost my fucking debit card after going out to eat...so i'm 1k+ miles away from home at college with no access to my savings...my account was with a small bank back home, so I had to jump through a lot of hoops just to get them to send a new card...which I may be unable to pin until I go home in winter...to top things off things are getting really sour with my current girlfriend...

    I love this girl to death, despite the fact her Mom has constantly tried to sabotage our relationship, even before she ever met me...she constantly speaks ill of me, and calls me a retard...supposedly retards come only in one body shape...mine >.>; The less said about her the better...it's like dealing with a mother-in-law you can't stand without even being married...now my girlfriend has taken a change for the worse...I can't really blame her though, because she's really stressed right now...paying her own way through college, stuck at home with a psycho bitch of a Mom, work is tough on her, and at the moment she's been hit with really bad finance charges on her card...

    Just the last few nights she's been getting sort of bi-polar...she'll want me, and need me...then she'll turn cold on me...I've got my own dedications, such as school...like needing to get my paper done last night...instead of her being understanding she got crazy on me....my school work is important, and indirectly i'm doing it for her...because if we end up getting married one day, I need to have a good job...and doing well in college is necessary for that...especially as an animator...

    She accused me of cheating on her, because I needed to get my work done...she asked if I had a girl on the side, because I chose to do my work rather than spend my time being intimate with her...I have a fucking deadline on a paper, and my grades are important...I'm about to graduate in a year after all...she asked why I would choose to do my work, over time with her...she went as far as to say, she wouldn't blame me if I did -_-;

    I just can't understand what's possessed her, and it scares me...though now you understand me and what i'm going through...anyone have any suggestions of what I can do to blow some steam off...I'm getting together with a group to watch Heroes, going out tomorrow after class to pick up last weeks comics, and going to see if I can find some gym time in there...nothing like a good sweat to cleanse the mind...though, what suggestions do you all have? My birthday is Wednesday, and despite not being a drinker...if I had the cash or access to my account...I might be a little inebriated or at least a tiny buzz

    Well, I play "Good or Don't Be" or "Komm Susser Tod" from Evangelion on the piano when I'm down, I used to be a cutter, but in positive ways, I just listen to my favorite songs

    the answer to this is to hack into the pentagon, almost cause ww3, and just sit and watch as they run around and panic.

    I usually play Half Life 2 Deathmatch. For some reason that game just makes me smile and cheers me up to no end.

    In the past I'd just spend time drawing or painting, just trying to keep busy and be creative. As of late I've gotten into models as well as repainting Transformers. Thanks to Jin's painting guide I can repaint Tfs a lot better than I could have ever dreamed and this relaxes me and kills time to no end.

    Also movies.

    Just think of this rhyme- "fuzzy wuzzy was a bear, fuzzy wuzzy had brown hair. Fuzzy wuzzy ate 12 people".

    Whenever life get you down
    Keeps you wearing a frown
    And the gravy train has left you behind
    And when your all out of hope
    Down at the end of your rope
    And nobody's there to throw you a line

    If you ever get so low
    That you don't know which way to go
    Come on and take a walk in my shoes
    Never worry 'bout a thing
    Got the world on a string
    Cause i've got the cure for all of my blues......

    Well the rest of the song is inappropiate. Just trying to give you a laugh man.

    Relationships are a compromise, if she is unwilling to compromise, I would move on.

    I used to really be into Monty Python...so was my ex, so now i'm kinda jaded with it...though this song always makes me kinda happy and yet sad :/

    Some things in life are bad
    They can really make you mad
    Other things just make you swear and curse.
    When you're chewing on life's gristle
    Don't grumble, give a whistle
    And this'll help things turn out for the best...

    And...always look on the bright side of life...
    Always look on the light side of life...

    If life seems jolly rotten
    There's something you've forgotten
    And that's to laugh and smile and dance and sing.
    When you're feeling in the dumps
    Don't be silly chumps
    Just purse your lips and whistle - that's the thing.

    And...always look on the bright side of life...
    Always look on the light side of life...

    For life is quite absurd
    And death's the final word
    You must always face the curtain with a bow.
    Forget about your sin - give the audience a grin
    Enjoy it - it's your last chance anyhow.

    So always look on the bright side of death
    Just before you draw your terminal breath

    Life's a piece of shit
    When you look at it
    Life's a laugh and death's a joke, it's true.
    You'll see it's all a show
    Keep 'em laughing as you go
    Just remember that the last laugh is on you.

    And always look on the bright side of life...
    Always look on the right side of life...
    (Come on guys, cheer up!)
    Always look on the bright side of life...
    Always look on the bright side of life...
    (Worse things happen at sea, you know.)
    Always look on the bright side of life...
    (I mean - what have you got to lose?)
    (You know, you come from nothing - you're going back to nothing.
    What have you lost? Nothing!)
    Always look on the right side of life...

    I got a couple of remedies
    - Watch some Red vs Blue
    - Doodle
    - Listen to some tunes
    - Fiddle with a TF
    - Play some Video Games
    - Go for a walk

    None of them have failed me yet, except playing video games. When I get to a bit I can't do and keep dying.

    Making smiley faces and fluffy clouds and chirpy birds and sunflowers is my guess.

    I watch a few minures of a NASCAR race, think of all those poor people who actually think that it's entertaining/ life-or-death, laugh, and get on with my miserable existence, thankful I'm not one of them. Unless you're one of them. In which case, watch some ESPN fishing.

    Ok you really need to lose this girl listen to me. I am a girl, My boyfriend spends alot of time doing his school work. I understand it is really important to him, I let him get it done. He makes time for me. Likewise when I have to study I pay no attention to him, or else I can't focus on my school work. If someone does not understand that you have to get your work done and it is important to you, then get rid of them. That is clearly immature, if she is 14 then maybe I can understand. If she does say "you got a girl on the side don't you?" say "yes" and go back to your work. Once you find a new girl who is mature and nice to you, you will be much happier.
