WTF? ::sigh:: lately I feel depressed and, unlike usual, I have no freakin' idea why! Everything seems to be going good for me.

I have a New Job™, I just networked up my house (tres cool), I've finally fully accepted the fact that I'm a geek and it's something i should be proud of. Everything is going pretty well, I just can't figure out what's wrong. I'm not even minding my classes (that much), but last night I just started feeling depressed and it hasn't stopped. Now I feel really stupid because I'm depressed over not having anything to be depressed about, and I'm depressed for being stupid enough for being depressed over nothing. To make things worse, a friend good friend of mine got a speeding ticket tonight, but, that's not bad enough, he freaked out when the cop went to pull him over, so he also got "attempting to elude an offficer," AND he admitted to it. It's not the ticket, its' that his parents are gonna' absolutely FREAK, and there's a good chance that I might not see him for a good long time.

This just plain sucks. Thanks for listening.

i was sorta depressed and you know what i did? I pretty much abandoned organized religion, and followed my own path. Then i wrote love poetry, that made me feel suprisingly good.

MacManKrisK: You know what we do, we list all the good things that happened during the day. Surprizingly that helps a lot. For instance, you're smart enough to realize you're depressed for no real reason, and smart enough to tell someone about it, even the Forums. That's a good thing in my books.
And your friend wasn't hurt or luckily didn't hurt anyone, and will probably learn a valuable life lesson and mature a bit over this incident.

Dr Cyclops... those words to live by... Magnificent Valour! Why can't everyone try this for a day?

I was in the #joyoftech IRC channel on radon.slashnet.org and this person came in and started reciting poetry....

...then suddenly Snaggy left the channel and Nitrozac came into the channel.... and I thought... "no, could this be?"...

Something like...

I studied the raindrop as it fell and became a part of the little puddle on my window sill. Hours later, I left with a smile as I knew the true meaning in the bright reflection.

Milk and cookies always cheers Me up, though by looking at My belly, I think I have had a bit too much cheering up. I wish there were something better than food to make Me smile.........Z

Happens to me sometimes. Go out and get some exercise. Really beat yourself into the ground. Endorphins fix everything. Trust me.
