You think you’d know your own sister and whether she’s dating that one friend in the friend group, but no, apparently fucking not. Apparently keeping me in the dark for a whole month about it while never hinting it at all is what she decided to do, and push every other person in the friend group away. It’s not my say on whether you should date someone, but jesus fucking christ, if your relationship’s foundation is to fucking lie and making others shut up about it so I don’t find out, it’s a garbage relationship already.

I feel like I'm a doormat, I felt bad for her after a day or two, but thinking about it, she really doesn't feel bad at all or doesn't seem to care. I don't want her to feel awful, but honestly, there's times where I want her to act genuinely sad about something, she doesn't get that her actions are her's alone and honestly doing whatever the fuck she wants. She's not going to change this way, and I feel like the consequences she deals with is almost nothing because she can just as easily warp them. I want her to be a better person but honestly I feel like it's hopeless, she's just a bitch. She did something she wasn't supposed to, when she said she was done with it, she didn't, despite mine and other's influence, and it was the guy who had to break it off. You'd think your sister would enough respect for her family, but no, she doesn't, and she still doesn't. I'm sitting at home, and she acts no fucking different than before the incident. I can't trust her anymore. It hurts a lot honestly. You want to trust her and it's not like you can cut ties but you love them regardless and all they do is be an ignorant bitch back, not knowing at all what they're doing to anyone, and once you tell them, they disregard it like it's something to be taken lightly. I'm tired of all this bullshit. She's not sorry at all, and I don't feel like she'll ever be sorry for whatever wrong she does. She'll only be sorry because she got in trouble for it, not because she genuinely believes or cares on what she did wrong.

It's fucking sad how I'm an adult and I still need to basically add permission from my parents if I'm going out of the house. They won't tell me shit, they'll arrange appointments, to only tell me a day before when I've already made plans, hell, I'll tell them a week before about whether I'm making plans or not, and it's either ignored or they just don't care enough to take note of. I already have a crippling social life, it's goddamn amazing the friends I have, who I can only see almost only once a year since we're so busy, planned this a week before, but no, it's either I have to push my time, or cancel it.

My story is a pretty typical one for the most part. There's this girl (we'll call her AA) I've been very close with for like 4 years now. Our story is seriously long, but I've always been her best friend, and now that things were going really good, I get the same thing that has happened before: some random guy comes over and gets her in 5 minutes. They've barely met and they're already as close as we are. It's fucking magical. I did say for the most part, and that's because that's only one of my problems.
There's a friend I have (we'll call him JJ) that did the same thing this other guy did. He won the girl in 5 minutes, and not happy with that he also completely fucked everything up by spreading her nudes, breaking up and dismembering the whole group, the one that I'd been a part of since the beginning (about 5 years ago) and the only people that I trust. So I was (and still am) in the middle of a war facing the consequences because fuck me. But now he's fucked up BIG fucking time. His fucking girlfriend decided to fake her death. Because fuck it. So he tells my friend(this guy's KK) and KK tells me seeking help. But JJ apparently isn't happy with people seeking help for him because he forgave his gf immediately when he knew it was fake, and he got mad with KK for telling me when he told him not to tell anyone. Like he has the right to get mad with anyone. That piece of shit is one of the reasons I have symptoms of depression, OCD and anxiety. The other reason is AA. But I'd rather pay the price than live without her love so I don't fucking care. I'm tired of everyone and everything galloping over me and of life treating me like shit. The worst part is that I don't want to leave anyone because my biggest fear is losing friends so I'm fucked in that regard. I'm also terrible at explaining things so this is probably an absolute shit storm. Fuck it.

So, gun laws, kids being killed at school, shitty politicians….I'm so sad that we have to keep having this discussion. We need to ban assault weapons, there is NO need for anyone to have one. We need background checks, age limitations, waiting periods, no gun show, or relative loopholes…Guns for hunting, & personal protection are one thing, assault weapons aren't needed by anyone outside of the military. We need to vote out politicians that cower to the NRA & their $ donations.

The machine gun clips that are high capacity can shoot 14 rounds a second. 300 million dead almost daily from this and we can't just put in a background check, or make it a crime for a felon or someone who has been involuntarily committed to a mental hospital to be in possession of a gun.

People who live for the MEMES really need to shut the fuck up honestly. Yeah, it's fun and all, but when the entirety of your being is to be meme-shit, and be a complete fucking idiot, then you really need to shut up. It gets old and becomes annoying REAL fast. You're not 12 years old, so stop acting as if you are because that just means you're a dumbass at that point, and it's blatantly obvious to everyone. Nothing wrong with having fun and jokes all the time, but when you're pretty much a fucking mesh of all the dumbasses of the internet for the sake of "jokes", you're honestly just a boring and brainless guy who can't figure out when and how to function as any other person.

Where the fork do i even begin? I mean, my life in many ways is pretty good, but the one problem is that I'm clinically insane and so are a lot ofher people around me.
Okay…All you need to know is this. I'm a teenage girl who doesn't struggle academically, has a small group of good friends, big dreams, an okayish family, and even a boyfriend who sticks by side no matter what. I've never had any worries about money, I don't get bullied, I didn't THINK that there was anything wrong with me… look, what I'm trying to say here is that I know how lucky I am and believe me, I am grateful for what I have.That fact only makes me feel even more guilty about being so angry and upset about what's currently going down, but the problem is I can't TALK about any of it. You see… as much as I adore the people who surround me…most of them (my close family in particular) are not very good at listening.
In all honesty, I think I'm going to be pretty vague about what's been happening ( as it makes me REALLY REALLY ANGRY and I'm not too sure why) but as I've established, I think I need to talk about it and yet I can''t. It doesn't matter how much I try and spell out what I'm feeling, they just don't seem to get it . Then again, if anyone's reading this, I want you to know that I don't blame them. I'm aware that I've never been brilliant about putting emotions into words and asking for what I need.
Anyway, this is just one way of phrasing it. There are plenty of other things in life that drive me up the goddamn wall but I'm getting a bit sick of typing so I shall leave it at that for now. And one more thing… I know I'm just a stranger on the internet, but I hope you are okay. You're probably on this site for a reason and I know it seems like the whole world is against you sometimes but it can and will get better. Honestly.

My husband, our 3 children, 4 cats, and I have been living in my bosses house, (which had her 4 cats, 1 dog, and her living here) for 6 months now and at the beginning everything was great, we paid half of everything and she paid have of everything, we bought food she bought household items like toilet paper and paper towels, but then having 5 extra people in the house was too much, sure i get it. so she moved next door in with her boyfriend. We were still paying 50/50 on everything, excpet we took over the household items and took care of and paid for her 5 animals as well. Well, i paid her every month but 1 time. i had just gotten out of surgery and my paycheck was a little short so my husband was going to cover the rest of it, which ended up being the worst idea ever because his internet was more important that paying out rent and utilities. My boss had gotten mad about it, understandable, i was pissed too, but instead of understanding or giving us any time to make the payment she freaked out and told me im either taking over all the bills fully or im moving out. so now instead of 300 a month im paying more like 700 a month. Well all her bills are a couple hundred behind which she said was my fault somehow (Whatever..). I'm a nicer person than i like to lead on so i agreed to pay the backdue amounts. 1 bill of which is the water bill. Somehow i racked up a $466 bill.
Let me back track a little. While i was paying 50% i paid her a total of $300 a month. 125 for half of her mortgage, and 175 for the water and electric. And the entire reason she said i had to pay everything is cause it felt like we were trying to fuck her over after not paying 1 time (which was compensated and then some within days)
Fast forward. so im paying $87.5 every month to this water bill, which i thought was half the bill. Today i get a statement from city hall, which has every payment and due amount for the last 20 months. This bitch only paid on the water bill 2 fucking times the entire time ive been here?!?!?!?! how the fuck you gonna tell me its my fault the water bill is 400+ behind when your the one not paying the fucking bill with the fucking money im giving you to pay the fucking bill with?!?!?!?! And get this! I was paying 87 dollars and 50 cents. THE NEW CHARGE WAS ONLY 77.64 EVERY MONTH!!!!! I thought i was paying half the water bill not the water bill and then some!!
So me being the penny cruncher i am added up the total New Charges for the last 6 months, added up the amount ive been paid… $457.89 is what the actual amount was, $428.64 is what was being charged in total, and i paid a grand spanking total of 485.08!!!!!!!!!!!!! Even if i added in the 30 penalty charges im only 2 fucking dollars short of paying the entire 6 months worth of water!!!!!!
So i keep asking myself, over and over and over, whos getting fucked over? how you gonna get mad at him for not paying 175 when you couldnt even pay the water bill. and my favorite question im asking is how is she going to tell me its my back due bill to pay when i paid more than the total amount and she never paid on it unless it was getting shut off or it already had been shut off..???

I absolutely HATE my stepsister! Long story, first of all, my little sister (8) has a diary. I always read it so I can know what's going on. She writes about what she does everyday. She also writes comments on my stepsister (8) who is pretty chubby. My little sister calls her a "stupid copycat pig" and a "fat idiot" in her diary. However, my stepsister recently got a diary too. My little sister got jealous and hid it in my stepsister's closet and read it. ( I know this because she told me to tag along) So of course I didn't say anything. It was hidden for 2 days before my stepsister found it. Then a month after, me and my little sister never saw it again until we found it in a shelf. We read it and it and found out that my stepsister read my little sister's diary! It even called MY little sister a "pink fat loser"! and "long thin skinny and weak"! At the bottom it said "remind me, She is a loser and stinks." I'm so PISSED. I could just punch my stepsister in her fatass face! I have no idea what to do! We can't just tell the parents because they'll just ask how whe know all this and we'll have to tell them that we read my stepsister's diary! I'm fucking ANGRY.

He's so supportive of me and tries to help me out with any problems (it's a bit hard when he's a 6 hour flight away and my time zone is 2 hours ahead of his). We video call on Whatsapp most days. I wish we didn't have to be apart, but we both agree that study is important. I'll be visiting him after I graduate at the end of the year.
I sometimes feel inadequate because he's so good to me. I'd like to do something for him to show him how much I love him but I'm not great at romantic gestures… any ideas??

I'm not sure how I feel, but I do wonder if my life here is of benefit to anyone. I cannot live in a world like this and I lack the skills needed to do so. Even the things I'm supposed to be good at make me feel incompetant, which is why I just want to disappear. To melt away. To leave this place behind and all of it's unsolvable problems. Sure, there are people I'd miss but I could learn to live without them and they could learn to live without me, although to ease any potential damage I'd want to cast a spell so they'd forget me. Not that I'm much of a loss.
I want to go to a different dimension where life is satisfying. Where i know what to do and can help people and not be a burden.

So this is the second post under this name… I have previously made posts under different names but anyway, why does that matter?
Why am I so full of unprovoked hate? There is no reason why I should hate this particular group of people but I do and it sickens me. They did nothing to deserve it at all, in fact given my circumstances I should be filled with respect for them but that is not the case. Why did I never learn to deal with anger when I was younger? I mean, nothing worked. AT. ALL. Writing doesn't really do it for me, neither does meditation, breathing, art etc. I mean, how does anyone get into the right state of mind to meditate or draw when they're furious? Anyhow, when I was small I had to deal with perhaps a little more than most and never knew how, so I just sat and didn't do anything, letting it all build up. I thought it had gone away, but no.
Even worse are the people who try to drag me down. The biggest problem is that they are actually trying to help I suppose, but all they've accomplished so far is making me feel stupid and miserable. What gets to me the most is that they haven't considered my feelings at all. Look, I know I'm very quiet but as my English teacher said, I'm not invisible… Right?
I hate my friends sometimes. I hate the teachers that are nice to me for literally no logical reason at all. I hate this world and the way it works. I hate people who are boring and I hate people who are smarter than me. But most of all, I hate this uncontrollable brain of mine that hates things it really loves. I hate how it can't stand being helped by anyone else and I hate the way it JUST WON'T STOP!
There's nothing I can really do about it except silently project my hate on to people. Not act on it necessarily, but just let it be there. I take someone who I don't like (and probably have never actually met personally) and try convince my brain that they are the source of all my problems, which is what I've always done. That causes problems in itself but it can take the heat away from less deserving people a little.
Why did I spend all this time typing this?

I'm so fucking tired of people saying something "fetishized" is automatically a "fallback for the community" or some BS like that as a criticism for something that's gay, because YEAH it's not like every straight romance is fetishized in any way, it's not as if those thousands of fictional stories are taken in a way nicer light than it is, they're all REALISTIC, and if they happened IRL, they wouldn't be controversial AT ALL. Guess we gotta get rid of all the porn in the world because it's FEtisHizED and holding everyone in society back!!
There's so many things the SJW community or an average "progressive", try to push that are just bullshit. They're just shoving down things down everyone's throats, and making people who are just trying to live their lives, a thousand times harder because they're "trying to help" but actually are obnoxious little shits who have no idea what they're talking about and give the people they're "supporting" a harder time.

Used to be a straight 90/A student, and now I’m struggling to even pass my courses and handing in assignments that are obviously incomplete. I could be doing well, I could be getting at least above average grades if I tried, but I just keep getting distracted, I just don’t have the willpower and focus to just sit there and study or do work anymore. I was completely fine in highschool, but now I can’t do anything I wanted to do, I’m struggling and fucking up in university where my grades actually matter. I want to change but I don’t know what’s wrong, there’s too many distractions? But I can have nothing around and I’ll just be lost in thought or my mind can just go blank for hours. I’m just so tired of this, I should have stopped and changed back to my old ways after the first or second year, but it’s still happening and I want to try better, but my “try” is fucking nothing.

I feel so much hate and anger towards my parents. Coming from a third world Asian country, I was sold the dream of becoming an engineer and getting a good job will be everything. I have worked and studied hard my whole life, never really asking for anything as such. My parents have always demanded that I study well and go to good schools and what not as it will surely land me a job. I did all that, came to one of the most expensive schools in USA just cause I was told that I can get a job easily. Now I am about to graduate without getting a job. Also studying something that I could not care less about. Probably the poorest amongst all my classmates. Don't even have a girl friend or anyone I know living around me as all my close friends are back home. My dad would rather pay the rent in Boston than take me to the fifa WC (probably the only thing I have asked for explicitly in my life). Also I am suffering from depression while toiling away in grad school, something I was clearly not ready for and now I will be graduating without a job. Out of luck max.

There are times where I just want privacy, or want to be doing stuff on my own, in peace, but I can barely do that at home. Share a room with my sister, so I can't hang out there all the time because she's doing her own thing, and usually being loud about it. Can't go to the living room because my parents are always going back and forth. For months, maybe even a year now, my dad's been listening to podcasts (not in English at that), listening them all day, even when he's sleeping, always loud as hell. I can hear it from my room or even in the living room, when he's just in his room. It's unbearable and he refuses to listen with earbuds or headphones, I have to get a random pair I'm currently not using and force him to use them if we so happen to be in the same room, otherwise, he won't. I don't understand why he does this, but I'm just tired of this, and on top of that, having nowhere in this house where I can be alone, and be at peace at mind. I don't mind being interrupted every now and then, I grew up with it, but if I have to choose this and between my lonesome apartment where I'm there and there's no one to talk or interact with, I don't know. Both sides are just too much, I get angry here, I get sad there, there's no in-between, I can't say anything about it at home, because whatever I say will be scoffed at as nothing, or I'll get lectured at if I try harder to get my voice out there, and there's nothing really I can actually do over there.
Maybe I'm just tired right now, but it's irritating how I can't just do whatever I want to do on weekends, because I'm being bothered or having to deal with my surroundings.

"What if I told you the stars, he drew them only for you?" "What if I can't dream, because I'm dreaming of you?"
What if I really did love everyone in my life but couldn't express it? Why does my brain freeze hhe does "the thing"? Heck, why does my brain freeze when I 'm thinking of him?
Why can't I change myself, and why can't they love me for who I am?

This is odd and out of the blue but I'm afraid of hell. We were talking about life after death in school today and… The whole prospect freaked me out more than it should since I've never had a religious upbringing of any sort.
Just think about it… After I die as an agnostic, either I'll end up in hell, tortured for all eternity because I didn't fully believe in God, or nothing will happen, and existence will fade away into nothingness. OR something unknown will happen to my body, mind, or soul.
Isn't it weird how all of these prospects are equally terrifying?

My husband and I have been trying to conceive for a couple of years with no luck. I love my siblings and I adore my niece and nephew like they are my own and we are all very close but it's hard watching everybody else to get to have what I want so badly. I'm 2 weeks late today and I took a pregnancy test this morning just to make sure. I didn't feel in my heart it would say positive but I just had to know. But still, seeing the negative result with my own eyes was hard. It hit me in waves and I spent most of the morning crying softly and quietly to myself. The worst part is it's the Friday before mother's day. I'm in the south and I'm in my 30's so it's assumed I already have kids. So all day, every customer I've had at work has told me Happy Mother's Day. It's very annoying that people assume you're a mom just because you're a female and it's even harder today because I'm facing the hard reality that I will probably never be a mom. It will be fine, the day will pass, the weekend will pass.
I feel your pain. My wife and I have been trying for about as long as you with the same results. We’re in the south too so we know what the general way of thinking is.

I am really afraid that I won't be able to get done what I need to at work.
I do audio and every year the school that the theater has puts on a big production. Unfortunately, they don't understand the tech side of things so we, the lowly peons of the production staff have to figure out how to make it work each year. The problem is we keep managing to do it, so the people in charge never learn their lesson.
And now this year's show is much bigger than previous years. That means a lot more microphones and because they never get us info on time, I didn't realize and now I don't think we have enough mics or channels on the console to make it happen. And if I tell her this, she might not understand and I could get fired or disciplined for simply pointing out a problem that could've been fixed if we'd just looked at it earlier.
Not to mention that today, the first day of load-in, the second tractor trailer with all the important things broke down and couldn't make it, so now we're essentially a day behind.
I am scared and angry and anxious and I don't know what to do.

Thats a tough spot. I wish I had a good answer for you. An account I worked for years ago was a lot like that. She would fire people and discipline you if you couldn't produce no matter what the circumstances were. Her answer would be "WELL YOU HAD BETTER BE FIGURING IT OUT!!!" She wouldn't lift one finger to help you either. She would let you fry.

Kinda done with this "friend", if I try to bring anything up, they just don't wanna talk about it and I have to swallow down my feelings because I guess friends aren't allowed to talk about bad shit together. We can't just talk it out because "I don't wanna talk about this bad stuff and I'm tired" just means you're selfish and don't care about the relationship at all. Every time I feel displeased about something I guess it's just MY problem and I can't say I wanna talk about it with them because it's just MY problem whenever they say something that just rubs me the wrong way, it's never THEIR problem if they just carelessly say shit and I feel offended or upset when they do it constantly. It's also MY fault if I make them feel bad because I'm busy doing something but they guilt-trip me by saying they're lonely or that I'm "hurting their feelings". Trying to fix this friendship was a mistake, even if I try to talk it out to them to fix it, I'll just be slowly distancing myself from this person until we aren't friends anymore. Everything is just so one-sided, I'm starting to have more dislikes than likes about this person, it was someone who I thought was my friend to someone who I don't wanna deal with majority of the time. Right now, it's just all these small ticks, they'll just keep adding up, and then eventually, it'll just fall apart after they pulled that one big thing that's eventually going to happen.

I 100% don't care about Mexicans getting deported and held at the border for trying to cross illegally.

I am a purist when it comes to the 2nd amendment. For me, it is not about guns. The amendment does not say we have the right to bear muskets or pistols or rifles or even the generic guns. It says we have the right to bear arms. The term dates back to the 1300’s and refers to the weapons of a warrior. It means the weapons of the day that could be used against you.
Yes, that means those men that wrote the 2nd amendment wanted you to have access to the same types of weaponry that the governing authorities had. These were the people that could threaten your rights and liberties. They had used their own weapons to overthrow the tyranny of England and wanted their posterity to have the same right and ability. There were even private individuals that possessed war ships at the time of the Revolutionary war that interacted with the Royal Navy.
It is important to note that they placed no limitations in the amendment and they preferred an armed populace to a standing army. The Bill of Rights is the very aroma of sedition. It is a proclamation to those in power reminding them that the people hold the ultimate power and there are areas beyond their reach. We need to stop giving these control freaks the thumbs up and replace it with a different finger.
I get that many of you are not "gun people." I don't have an issue with people who are ignorant on this topic. What does piss me off is willful ignorance. If you really wish to understand, keep reading.
People who think that some sort of "extensive" training is necessary for a teacher to defend against a school shooter do not know shit from Shinola. ANYONE who possesses BASIC competency with a concealed carry pistol can carry safely in a school, and can defend against a school shooter. Period. Full stop.
First of all, none of these maniacs is looking for a gunfight. If they were, they'd go hit a police station or a Friends of NRA dinner. Historically, EVERY SINGLE TIME one of these losers run up against ANY armed resistance, they either flee, surrender, or commit suicide. The only exception to this rule are attacks by self-proclaimed jihadis, which we thankfully have yet to see at a school. (Though we will, eventually.)
Second, no one is asking armed teachers to form a SWAT stack and head down the hallways to seek and destroy the attacker. Some might decide to go on offense, and we should thank God that such heroes exist. It's the type of courage that the coward deputy of Broward County wishes he had. But all a teacher needs to be able to do is to secure their classroom as well as possible, get the best cover they can, and point the gun at the door. Bad guy comes through door…shoot bad guy. Kids saved.
In police circles, a common term for a door is "the fatal funnel." Do you know why that is? That's because it is the easiest place to get yourself shot while moving through a building. If somebody can hit a DOOR, they can hit you, if you hang out there too long. That's part of the so-called "extensive training" cops get (especially SWAT and active shooter response)…so they don't make themselves an EASY TARGET. Unless your school shooter knows and utilizes proper technique for entering a room through the "fatal funnel," guess what that makes him? You guessed it…an EASY TARGET.
Don't get me wrong. Training is good. More training is great. But while there is no such thing as "too much," there is also such a thing as "enough," and most of the people making proposals like this don't know the difference.

I CAN'T STAND MY DAD ANYMORE!!! I only see him like 1 week out of a month and whenever I DO see him all he does is get on my back for crap I never even did. "You raised your voice, you have attitude," etc etc. It ticks me off so much because I know for a fact that I NEVER DID THAT. My tone had remained at a neutral level the whole time! Apparently he's never wronf about anything. And he's such a hypocrite! He's always fighting with my mom and being irrational (it ticks me off even more how he treats her; like a little housewife to do everything he wants; she's works harder than anyone I know). He's always like "Don't argue with your mom," etc, then turns around and argues with her right then, like WTH. Don't think I've never tried to talk to him about how I think he acts, I've approached it at so many angles that I could draw a fractal. He never wants to listen and he never wants to change. He never does ANYTHING around the house then complains whenever we don't want to do something. He doesnt do the taxes, clean the house, cut the grass, or even go to his kids' sporting events. I don't think he's ever been to any of my games, ever. He isn't even a father figure. He never teaches me or my brothers how to be men or whatever. He doesn't hang out with us, he's always so controlling and isolative. I don't even see him as a father, just a dictator living in my house.

I'll never "support my local union." They can go to hell. Fuck them all. You're days are numbered. Soon Right To Work will be law everywhere. The Supreme Court already struck down your mandatory dues. You lose.

Umm… okay. So this is hard to explain but I live a fairly normal life except that I'm rather shy and I'd rather live in my imaginary world. Problem is that said imaginary world is far, far away from here and henceforth all my imaginary friends are also far, far, away, meaning I probably out to find some nice people to hang out with. Unfortunately, I still feel really really lonely thanks to my various habits:
#1: When I get attached to someone, I get REALLY attached. Not in the clingy, stalker-y way but rather in a more silent way. I think about them all the time, getting over-excited every time they acknowledge me, portraying them as superhuman in my own head and then getting disappointed when it turns out they aren't completely like me. This leads on to my second point.
#2: Apparently I can't trust anybody. My school actually called in an educational phycologist (but that's a whole different story) and it turns out my trust levels are a lot lower than that of an average person, which confused me at first. I thought I was the type to puppy love anyone who was nice to me (which is true to a certain extent. Recently someone was quite sweet to me in a YouTube comments section and now I wanna be their best friend) but thinking about it IS true that after somebody hurts me even a little, it takes a long while for me to trust them again if at all. Rarely do I want to talk about it, I just leave myself to grow further apart from that person.
#3: I don't really realise anything until I stop to think about it. I've always been a bit of a loner and there's nothing wrong with that until something comes up that I need to talk about or that I need to feel loved. Yeah… things have been really weird lately and I just can't get it OUT. Maybe it's because my friends have all been happy lately and I don't want to burden them or maybe it's because I just don't know how to begin… but I just can't confide in anyone and I need someone who'll listen! That's another problem; people around me lately never seem to take my emotions in to account. No one ever seems to want get very deep or emotional around me and they never seem to think that I have feelings too. It's like I'm just a robot who just needs to keep on going on mindlessly no matter what.
So yeah… that's kind of it I suppose. I'm lonely and I need to find snap out of this somehow.
