I was in a band called noose. We did some practices a lot but also like this man above said, smoked quite a bit of pot.

Jesus, four?! What happened in those instances, exactly (if you're ok with talking about them)?

Fell in a ravine, almost fell a couple yards into a bunch of sharp rocks, ran into a man who was not very nice while taking a walk and bashed my head open while playing tag in my house. All in the span of 8 or so years.

I used to play guitar for a punk rock group 'Overdose Movie Star' back in high school. We weren't very good and spent most of our time smoking pot. 

 

I used to play drums and when the band my brother was in practised in our garage I played with those guys sometimes. My friend asked me if I wanted to be in his band but I didn't like the idea of dragging all that drum stuff around.

Aw shoots, many of my life experiences are hard to believe and might sound ridiculous. Not trying to impress anyone, some of these are still hard to think about.

 

I've survived many attempts on my life (both natural & man-made): lymes disease, a snowmobile flipped over and dropped on me by my POS father, living on the streets and dreaming of food/shelter, abusive step-father with a gun, multiple car crashes in the ice (I wasn't driving), wild fires, house fires, many floods & hurricanes, tsunami, one white squall that forced me to cut my lines or flip, a massive carport flying through the air that almost impaled me, too many bullets, aggressive dogs, an insane and territorial wolverine, a stampede of cattle on my property and a mule (turned both around with strategic shots to the balls [wrist rocket with Chinese ball-bearings]), real gangsters & wannabes (32" SD-TV to the head sends a message), drunk ass racist hicks/locals with trucks, guns & bats ... Caribbean pirates with knives that come at night (me with a machete & two flare guns), two tiger shark circling in bloody water (in the middle of the ocean with no help in sight), an electric ray shocking me through my spear-pole ~3.3 fathoms down, thousands of barracuda with teeth that look like long icicles darting at me for nibbles during a storm while I'm trying to replace my propeller (Pro-tip: Don't wear anything shiny in the ocean), Florida gators in the murky & electrified ICW, multiple rattlers on cliffs and waiting in sheds, multiple bear (which killed my first dog Moon), one giant ass crab that I should not have messed with (they can swim really fast, and look like a massive spider on PCP), a murderous house invasion (when I was five) that killed a baby and then returned for me and my unborn sister, old burning coal mines, nearly drowning, nearly getting crushed between two boats when I didn't know better, high-speed chases both driving and in the backseat, drive-bys, robberies, school shootings that resulted in my friend being set on fire on the school bus, a fuckin' nuclear submarine that almost split my sailboat in half (thought it was a whale on my fish finder), getting so drunk on Y2K that I fell off a bowling alley and was almost impaled on rebar, attacked by a racist Hawaiian who wielded a wrench bigger than I've seen before or since, the time my dumbass dad convinced me crossing a train bridge would be safe then we had to outrun a train and jump in a river, more drugs than ever thought possible when I was a teen (understandable if you made it this far), a giant boar latched onto my hand who I later befriended (typically I like animals more than people) BTW a boar is pure muscle, you cannot stop them ... the list goes on, after awhile you stop counting because theres not much point. All that yet I've never broken a bone, only cracked a tooth; knock on wood. Never been attacked by a wild cat so thats something ...

I don't fear death, I fear pain and leaving my loved ones without ample protection. I deal with depression but still consider myself a pretty happy person. Someday I'll write a book or make a video about it, I try to incorporate my experiences into my art and keep the perspective that things can always be better or worse.

So to summarize, I am a survivor and while it might sound contrary, I believe in peace and diplomacy first. Of course I've had many good experiences as well, but thats for another day.

Visited a phoniatrist today. He put a camera into my mouth to look at my vocal chords. Then I had to make a "Hiiii!" sound, but it sounded more like "Haaaa!" and felt like throwing up. The left vocal chord is a little smaller than the right one. This leaves a gap between them, because they're not same size. Is this why I speak so quiet? If I talk louder, my voice gets tired really fast. I'll get voice therapy later and maybe surgery if the therapy isn't enough help. I got few times of voice therapy years ago, but then they didn't check my vocal chords at all.

I actually kinda unironically like 32X Doom's soundtrack. I think it's interesting to see how simplistic Doom's music can get on a Yamaha soundchip.

I actually hate watching porn and sex related jokes.

 

If you have to put sex related stuff into your jokes to make them "funny", then your sense of humour is probably shit.

I’m hanging out in a nice hotel bar three negronis deep. I like walking around and ending up in nice quiet fairly low key places. Is that level of solitude good? I’m not a complete introvert but I like solitude and people watching and getting loaded in luxurious places.

As someone who spends most of their time in solitude and isn't exactly very social in the first place, I say yes. It gives me the time I need to refill my batteries.

 

Plus, I sometimes like to go out for walks into the park at night during the summer/summer-to-autumn when it's neither too hot nor too cold, it's good stuff.

Back when I had (more) time to do (other than school) stuff, I used to go out running in the middle of the night (but more related to my sleep rhythm being nearly "backwards"). Usually here's no one around outside in the middle of the night. Although I do like going out sometime near sunset and go look at the sunset on top of a hill.

I used to do that too, but I live in a gated community with tall hedges separating the lots. I felt like a serial killer walking around hearing people partying and having fun, so never did it again.

I have many virtual friends, with much diversity, ranging from British nerds who IRC while smoking weed, to random furries around the globe, and even women who use IRC to chill and talk with other people (usually people who share the same chat channels, like me).

 

In real life, I have many friends in school, but few otherwise.

Take care to keep the friends you get to know in school. They slip away way too easy.

Ah, school and friends... these are 2 words that absolutely do not fit in the same sentence from my experience.

 

Only the high school was a more pleasant experience, but my years spent in school were otherwise a fucking nightmare. I'll never forget the mockery and ridicule these years brought me, wnd I most definitely will never forgive those responsible for it. It's probably one of the reasons why nowadays I have barely any interest in befriending anyone, although I have always had anti-social tendencies and never really got along with people very well. And even if I do, it seems life always finds a way to remind me of that.

If all goes well tonight, then I can expect to be partying and drinking myself silly until the wee hours of the morning in the vicinity of Celebration Square, Mississauga. Jurassic Park TO is pretty strict on alcohol and smoking, but security for Jurassic Park West seemed perfectly fine with everyone having open bottles of liquor and smoking out in the open when I was last there. 

 

I can't believe this is finally happening. It all seems so surreal.

I have like one some sort of friend from school. We seem to meet so rarely that I don't know exactly what kind of friend she is. Sure we have fun together when we do meet. I'd like to meet more often.

 

From previous schools I had crappy friends, who eventually insulted me or otherwise treated me badly. Now I've distanced myself from these people and the memories. It all feels like it happened to someone else, but I just happen to remember it. And tomorrow I get to talk about this stuff to a psychologist (again). Should also make some kind of life timeline chart showing all the major events in my life and maybe another line going up and down to show how happy / unhappy I've felt.

 

Fortunately I did some text some year ago listing of all the major events from each year of my life and how they affected my life and what I felt back then. So I don't need to think too much about what to put on that chart.

Speaking of thinking, now here's a random fact: Sometimes when I'm thinking too much when doing or saying something, the end result is almost the same as when I'm not thinking at all. Cool stuff, isn't it?

The problem is, if it was a more traumatic experience the memories will eventually end up haunting you. It's definitely my case, there's things from that dark period of my life I will probably never forget, as much as I tried to distance myself from the people responsible for them. It'll always be there.

 

Sometimes, I wonder if my self-esteemed wouldn't be almost nonexistent if it wasn't for these experiences, and a few others.

They did haunt me for some 10-15 years. I got some professional help to deal with most of the stuff, and later some more to deal with the rest. Now this stuff still affect my life in a way that I don't have much of anything to talk about with anyone. At school or work people of my age all have children/family and that's what they all talk about if they're not talking about school or work.

 

I don't want to talk about my crappy past to them, because it might become a problem if they knew I've had mental health problems. I could talk about being trans, but there just hasn't been much to talk about that, unless I've needed to change some work shift because of having some appointment at a clinic. Both past mental health problems and being trans have made people question if I'm able to work/study. Even for this school where I'm now, I had to get a doctor's statement that I'm ok to work/study. Though I'm glad they at least gave me this sort of possibility, other schools didn't.

 

For me it helped to be able to talk about my traumatic experiences. Earlier the events would play in my mind in repeat, and/or like a constant police interrogation going on in my mind about everything I did or was going to do. It took some years too to be able to even talk about this stuff, though when I finally was able to talk about it all, none of it troubled me much anymore. Have you tried talking about your experiences to someone?

Yeah, a few times, but never got professional help. It might have been the better option because past experiences with people only led me to the conclusion that no one really gives a damn about you, if they didn't change their view on me immediately afterwards and think I'm a joke because yes, that's how some people see the victims of abuse: As always being the ones who had the problem in the first place, and their fault for being weak, not deserving to be taken serious or sympathy. Mhm.

 

Not to mention that others might even want me to forgive them, like fuck right off please. No sane man would forgive them. I even almost got expelled from school due to a so-called "friend" at the time, the same guy who later wanted to literally trade his girlfriend for another in high school. Trading, girlfriends? You can just tell by these 2 words that the guy had serious problems. Other people also come with the eternal excuse that "they were kids, they didn't think". Yeah, and so what of it? Being immature or a kid does not always excuse everything. I've also done real some dumb shit when I was in my teenage years/a kid but not once it crossed my mind to:

 

- Mock and ridicule people for the sake of having fun, and psysically abuse them.

- Use them as a tool to further my own ends.

- Try to get people expelled out of jealousy (yes, that was the reason behind it).

- Hang someone upside down.

 

And that's just the tip of the iceberg. And yet some people want me to forgive the ones responsible for them. How about no.

 

It definitely left a mark upon me, no idea how big though, but I know the memories will always haunt me, even if nowadays they don't piss me off or make me feel embarrassed as much as they once did. They're more like a shadow from the past, one that can do no harm, but will always be there.

Feels, man. My kid self never would have thought it possible that there'd be a brief time in college where I actually believed I was "popular." Sharing a class and going to the same DIY punk shows? It was so nice to have people recognize me. I always took it for granted and would sneak off with just the one or two people I really cared about, but the universe doesn't discriminate. A lot of those people have disappeared, either died from illness or settled down with an SO or just completely changed. I wish I accepted more people unconditionally.

 

Although where's the fun in that? Something something esteem, don't give yourself away too freely. Sometimes I feel bad that my dad had me so late in life (he was in his 40's when I was born), because what I gained in maturity I lost in terms of my patience/naivete for most of the people in my age group. Just couldn't ever relate to what they were going through. I was always too existential and nerdy. And I still am now, even though I've gotten better at seeming confident.

 

So old guard Doomworlders, how the hell do you make friends after college? I'm 26 and still can't figure it out.
