    Mood continuing to worsen.

    I'm so fed up. It's sad when I'm exhausted, and just want to rest, yet all I can look forward to is work because it breaks the monotony and I at least get out of this house.

    My only friend is too afraid to leave their own house, so I haven't been able to leave mine in well over a month now. There are no events for me to go to anywhere near here. Nothing to do.

    I could just get dressed up and go sit in a coffee shop or something, but wtf is the point of that? The best case scenario is someone compliments me and goes on their way, but likely I'll just encounter rudeness. And if I go out aimlessly, I'm more likely to end up spending money I don't need to because I'll end up browsing shops and wasting gas.

    I hate that I feel such a bigger urge to be myself again, and to go out and do things. It just makes me even angrier that I have no one to do it with. I feel like this is such a childish rant, but I'm so fucking tired of never having any fun. I need to move on, but to what? A social group that I have absolutely nothing in common with? I've had a whole lifetime of that and I CANNOT DO IT AGAIN. It's draining and prohibiting (ie, they aren't interested in any of the events I am so I miss out on going) and I just want someone who I can listen to/talk music with for once. I can't stay locked up anymore. I'm getting old, and I'm sick of hearing, "Oh, one day we should do this..." or "Someday, we'll...." NO. I AM RUNNING OUT OF TIME.

    Whatever.

    Sorry for the garbage rant. I'm just restless and angry and my ear is killing me from my recent piercings. Just fed up.

    I feel like I have made some decent progress in this goal the last few months. I've started to care more and put effort into my appearance again, which I've barely done at all in the last three years, thanks to depression. I almost feel like me again. I almost feel free.

    The problem with this lies in the fact that I am growing frustratingly bored. I want desperately to dress up and go out, but there aren't any "goth"/alternative clubs or even events in my city. The closest is Toronto, and for me to have fun (ie: be able to drink at all, not be too tired to drive the long ass trip back home), it would require a stay in a hotel. I would be willing to do this, of course, but my BFF does not have a job and cannot pay for anything. While I could technically splurge for a night in the city, I'm tired of things being like that (no matter who I've been around, even my family, I've always paid for everything), and I just don't think the cost would be worth it. So I'm stuck in limbo yet again.
    I'd love to do it on my own, but the city terrifies me as I basically don't know it at all, and only travel there for concerts. I've had a number of negative experiences in Toronto, which unfortunately kind of killed the magic of the city for me. Maybe I'm just too full of excuses because I'm scared, but I also don't want to be a tiny creature alone in a city she doesn't know in the wee hours of the morning.

    I'll think of something. At least I have concerts to look forward to. This year has been pretty great so far for that anyway, at least compared to other years. So far we've seen The Birthday Massacre, and Tears For Fears. Next up is Depeche Mode in September (IAMSOOOOOOOOOOOEXCIIIITTTTEEEDDDDD), and Christian Death with Lords of Acid in October. I wish there were more. I'd absolutely love to see Pet Shop Boys when they come in a couple months, but BFF has no interest, so I guess that's too bad. I'm so tired of not being around anyone who shares my interests or desires to do things. It really sucks. I don't even know how to meet people with similar interests, let alone ones near by. I've tried several online sources, but all I receive are dick pics, so that's nice.... :/
    I don't know, perhaps something will fall into my lap when the time is right, but, either way... I feel like I am getting to the best place I've been in a long time, or possibly even ever.

    I've been MIA here for well over a week now. I'm sorry for that and I appreciate all the kindness that was posted here during my absence.
    Last weekend I did something mildly out of character. Coupling the idea of this goal with this irritating loneliness that grows deep within and occasionally begins to take over until I feel like I am going to explode, I joined a dating site.
    I showered, did my hair and face, and put on different clothes for a couple pictures. (I never care to take selfies. I am a shame to my generation.) I hammered out a couple lines about myself and that was that.
    I was surprised at the bombardment of messages I received. Most were either far away, twice my age, or came across as generally pathetic and/or creepy, but I started talking to some men and it was nice to be somewhat social without the crippling anxiety that comes with having to do it face-to-face. It was nice to be complimented, given that my last relationship left me believing I was a grotesque troll who was both disgusting and undeserving of any form of happiness.
    Shortly after I made my profile, I received a message from a gorgeous guy who lives in my city. He didn't look like the type who would go after me. He is a typical brand name sporting jock who listens to top 40, whereas I do not hide my fresh from the grave/forever undead nature. But I decided to go with it anyway... we talked all day and decided to make a coffee date for the next night. He said he was on a paid site because he was looking for someone serious and he wanted to settle down. He kept telling me how I was perfect, beautiful, "different from the others" and all that garb.
    Things seemed to be going crazy well. We got along decently during coffee and he kissed me in my car (God forbid I ever attract someone who drives...), which was nice. He said he liked me and we should hang out again the next night. Then he sent me a picture of his junk. I didn't think much of this, given that it seems to be the standard mating call of the modern male, so I was happy anyway. I'm thankful I didn't send anything back, as that makes me uncomfortable.
    He came over to my place the next day, which always makes me nervous. I hate having anyone other than Michele over. Not that I have anyone other than him in my life, har har. My ex used to complain that the smell of my two cats bothered him despite my rampant vacuuming and cleaning and generally acted so disgusted with me and everything in my life that it gave me a bit of a complex.
    Anyway, I put on a movie and we kissed a bit and sooner than later, it became very apparent to me that he just wanted to have sex. I was disappointed and told him again that wasn't going to happen within the first couple of dates because I was beyond tired of sex ruining every dating experience I've ever had. I had discussed this over coffee, but no one ever seems to understand or listen. After that he got quiet and we just cuddled and kissed a bit more. It was really weird, but not unpleasant.
    For the next couple of days, he began to text me less and less, and when I finally called him out on it, he told me, "It isn't you... I just don't know what I want anymore and I'm trying to figure it out..." LIKE ARE YOU EFFING KIDDING ME? How foolish was I to believe that anyone on a paid dating site would be any more serious than those who are on the standard hookup ones? FFS. I'm just tired of people wasting my time. I want some kind of companionship, and the more days that pass, the more alone I feel. He could have just told me if he didn't like me as much as he initially claimed to, or that it was all just a tactic to add me as another notch on his bed post... but it just really discouraged me and made me feel like there really is nothing different out there. The compliments were nice. Kissing was nice. Generally getting made up and going out and pretending to be a normal girl was nice... but it was a lot of effort. It wasn't worth it. I'm too emotionally damaged to handle this kind of crap and constant rejection. But whatever, at least I tried...
    I might go back on the site, but to be honest, the guy I went out with was the only one of those who messaged me that didn't give me the creeps. Oh well. Whatever. Nevermind.

    I am about to buy tickets for a handful of concerts coming up this year for Michele and I to go to, so I have that to look forward to anyway.

      @skeletalgarden I don't think you were foolish at all. And I don't think that him sending you photos of his "junk" is really the modern male mating call, although I do think it is the calling card of a certain type of guy. Don't blame yourself when someone else is clearly a jerk. And getting out there and trying was a big step - one to be proud of no matter how it ended up. Keep looking for ways to push out of your comfort zone, just be reasonably on guard.

    Long weekend and I'm effectively spending it rotting in my bed with the cats, as usual. I took sleeping aids and slept for a much needed 10 hours, and I'll probably do it again tonight, too. #partyhard
    For the last couple of days I've been experiencing terrible physical cravings for a cigarette. I started smoking when I was 16, mostly socially, and stopped at 18. I didn't smoke again until I was about 21 or so - when we started going out to the bar. Everyone smoked, and it became social again but soon after was a regular thing. So once again I was a regular smoker, this time until I was almost 24, and I quit. I went through a brief phase of deeper depression last winter where I started smoking again, lasting from about March to May. I quit when my intense shame and embarrassment became too much to deal with, as I had kept a secret of my failure from everyone except Michele, which was difficult. 
    I had a few puffs of a cigarette the last time I got drunk - in late October - and felt horrendously nauseated. I figured I had finally become an official nonsmoker.
    I noticed at work the other night that I had that same horrible internal dread and itch. I chewed nicotine gum that I (for what I thought was a silly precaution) carry in my bag and usually don't touch at all and it helped a bit, but I've been feeling awful all weekend so far. The craving comes more and more often, and I refuse to buy an entire pack because... well, NO! but you know... I don't know. I'm just rambling but I'm so confused and irritated by it by this point. Maybe I am just more anxious and stressed than normal, but I don't feel any worse than I normally do. Grr.

      @skeletalgarden (((hugs))) nicotine cravings suck big time! I gave up in 2012 and the pangs can sometimes smack me across the head when I least expect it but more noticeably it's when I'm hating on myself.

      @tazzell I'm sorry you know the struggle as well, it's really not fun. I ended up caving and having about half a cigarette and just felt so sick and ready to hurl and like it was totally not worth it. What a ridiculous craving lol.
      I definitely notice it worsen when I am feeling down on myself also.

    I've always wanted to learn sign language. My uncle was deaf and was willing to teach me, but sadly he died when I was quite young. I have tried to teach myself in the past but lost ambition. I'm going to look into the possibility of any local courses being available. I also think it would be a good thing to have on my resume.

    Finally looked into the details of how to go about doing this on the government's website. Holy god it's expensive... $160 for the passport, at least $20 for shipping, and then I have no idea for the photo, but I'm guessing it couldn't be more than $20-ish? But it's good for 10 years, so I suppose that's not so bad.

    Anyway, I might do this the week I get paid, so the week after next. I also have to find two references and a guarantor, which is probably going to be the worst part other than having to go to Service Canada, where the employees are always beyond miserable and rude and the lines are always 20 miles long even if you think you're smart for getting there before they open. Bleh. Oh well, it needs to be done. I can't wait to buy a super cute passport case for it!

    One more step to having no excuses!

      I've always wanted to visit the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam. She's been one of my heroes since childhood so I think that would be an incredible experience, and I imagine the rest of Amsterdam would be beautiful to see as well.

I was able to tour through Chatsworth House, a huge stately manor house where they often film period pieces.

    I need to have the next one done by my review in just over a month, then want to rush to complete the last two before they are due. I just get so nervous with tests. Going to bribe myself with some kind of reward for each level I complete. I really want a hair crimper, so that might be my first. After I complete them all, I'll book an appointment for my next tattoo(!!!).

    I try to do this every year. I succeeded in 2010 and have come close since but I never seem to read as much as I'd like to.
    I find that reading really helps my depression and has always been a great method of escape for me. I have a fairly massive personal library (I'm addicted to thrifting, lol), so I never run out of things to read.
    So far, I have read 8 books this year. I keep track of them on Goodreads, but also plan to update here like I did years ago when I was active on 43Things.

    So far I have read:


    1. Letting Ana Go by Anonymous

    2. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them: The Original Screenplay by J.K. Rowling

    3. The Passion of Alice by Stephanie Grant

    4. Full House Michelle #18: My Almost Perfect Plan by Sarah J. Verney (I swear I'm an adult - I stumbled upon a couple of Full House books while at a local thrift shop one day and for fifty cents a piece, I couldn't pass up the ~nostalgia~!)

    Vague title because I don't yet know what the next ones will be.

    I love body modification and I'm sad that depression stole several years from me that I could have spent getting more piercings and tattoos, but I just didn't care. Nothing I can do about it now but live in the moment and get them done.

    In June, I got my nostril pierced. (Third time I've had it done, but was at crappy job where I couldn't have it in, so it kept healing over. Now I have a great job that doesn't give AF about what I do to MY body, yay!) And just over a week ago I got the third and fourth holes in my left lobe and my rook done. Now my left side is very sore, but pretty! It is not recommended to heal a lot of piercings at once, so I have to calm down for awhile and let my body do its thing. I currently have 13 piercings, and my eventual goal is between 40-50 (mostly in my ears, and nothing below my navel. Just saying).

    I'm thinking I'll probably go again in October, and I'll either get an industrial and fourth lobe in my right ear, or my nipples. I had the industrial already, but took it out due to the fact I went to a crappy piercer and they didn't do it correctly. I'm hoping that because I now have a better piercer, things will work out for it this time. I had an industrial on my left ear as a teenager as well, but it was pierced wrong and basically just caused me a ton of pain for months until I couldn't take it anymore and just took it out. My ear is still slightly misshapen from it, but not too bad. Live and learn.

    I mostly want to work on my ear projects, because I have them fairly well planned out (including terribly drawn on piercings on pictures of my ears, lol) and as I have the sides of my head shaved, they are on prominent display. Also, cartilage piercings take forever to heal and are a pain in the butt, so I'd rather not put them off.

    ~exciting~

    Definitely possible. I'm adding this as a kind of "subgoal" to my goal of attending Wave-Gotik-Treffen, which takes place yearly in Germany. I will likely have no one to go with, but it's probably best that I understand a decent amount of their language anyway.

    I haven't gotten a tattoo in years now. I think my last was in 2012, maybe 2013 at the latest. I've always wanted to be covered, and I was on a roll (I got all three of mine done within the span of just over a year, which isn't bad), but funds became a problem, and then depression took over everything.

    It's going to be a portrait of my two cats, as they've been my best friends for over half my life. I've wanted this for years. Just need to save a bit and decide on an artist. I save my cash and change separately and have probably close to $500 altogether, but I know a good artist doing a detailed piece like this will probably run me closer to a grand, if not more. We'll see. I just need to start becoming the me I've always been meant to be. I'm sick of waiting.

    1. Bridget Jones's Baby (5/10 - Much better than TEOR, liked the happy ending.)

    2. Tucker and Dale vs. Evil (4/10 - Highly recommended horror comedy with a great premise, but I found myself bored.)

    3. Class of 1984 (5/10 - Cult classic which I am shamed for having never seen before. It was fun, plus Timothy Van Patten was so super cute and Lisa Langlois was killing the 80s bad girl look... Wasn't my favourite, but I'd watch it again.)

    4. The Witch (6/10 - I tried to watch this awhile ago, but got bored. So glad I tried again! Shout out to Netflix Canada for adding a horror movie that isn't UTTER garbage!)

    1. 31 (4/10 - Big fan of Rob Zombie's work and was super excited for this. Not as bad as everyone says, but not even half as great as his other work, either.)

    2. Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason (3/10 - I just finished the book, so obviously this was a necessary one. I've always loved the first Bridget Jones movie, so I was really excited for this, however, both the film and the novel were kind of not great... the book was still better, though.)

    1. 30 Days of Night (5/10 - I liked the idea/plot of this one, and also their portrayal of vampires as scary monsters/animals instead of sparkling sex symbols.... But also Josh Hartnett, nooooommmmmmm.)


    About to start number 12, but I'm a bit tired and fear I might fall asleep, so I'll wait until later to count it.

    1. Krampus (5/10 - I don't know, lol. It was available on a site BFF gave me their login for, and I wanted to watch it a couple Christmases ago, but was in the height of my depression fuelled inability to sit through movies. It was decent, probably something I'd recommend during the holiday season.)


    Ten down!

    1. Green Room (3/10 - Was interesting enough to keep my attention, but wouldn't watch again. Love Anton Yelchin though, such a tragic loss. He was so cute, too.)

    2. To the Bone (4/10 - I waited forever for this to come out, but have avoided it because I feared it'd be "triggering" as I am currently in the best place I've been since developing an eating disorder a few years ago. This didn't "trigger" me, it just annoyed me. I also hated the ending. But Lily Collins sure is flawless, so I guess there's that. In terms of entirely "realistic" eating disorder films, my absolute favourite is [The Brief Life of] Catherine (1988), which I watched dozens of times at my worst. I related most to her story. The book is alright, but I wish the story went more in depth. Anyway, this movie was a disappointment and at some points rather insulting.)


    And yes, I basically just lay in bed and watch movies all day lately, lol.

    WGT is a HUUUUGGGGGEEEEE goth music festival that takes place every year in Germany. Tons of people who look like me and listen to the same music I do, and a bunch of bands that never really come to Canada.... YES PLEASE.
    I've wanted to go since I was a little baby bat, but never thought it possible. Now, I realize all I need is the funds and a damn passport.
    I've never travelled anywhere, never been out of Canada, or even on a plane. It will probably cost a couple grand to make this happen, at least, but I want it so terribly. I'm scared and I wish I wouldn't have to go alone, but I can't wait anymore.

    I have a plastic bin full of random crap I don't want anymore. I need to go through my records and weed out the few I don't want. (I bought some in "lots," so I have quite a few only because they came with ones I really wanted.) Other than that, I just have a handful of random DVDs, books, dolls/toys, and some clothing items to offer. I hope to maybe sell my mini fridge as well, but who knows. I've never had a garage sale before, but I'm going to try. I'm hoping to put any money I might earn towards my tattoo goal.
