I loved Eurovision! It's great fun to watch, taking the piss out of the really cheapy acts, and getting down with the entries that are genuinely good.

Like Italy's entry last year, Follia D'Amore by Raphael Gualazzi.

Oh god yes! I loved their song too! It was so bouncy, I found myself playfully dancing through the living-room. xD

Shame that we never win.

I spend most of my life never taking anything I do seriously because when I do all of a sudden nothing is good enough, everything is worthless, and I can never find the motivation to do anything.

I can't do that anymore, I need to learn to not look down on myself so much, and let myself improve my encouraging myself to work hard.

I've also realized that I can't depend on others. I need to learn to stand on my own two legs, or else none of the projects I work on will ever get done.

I'm just afraid over what I'll lose from letting go ...

This is how I deal with life. Go with it and let everything slide off and when it comes tumbling back at me I hit rock bottom. Hard. After a few days of feeling like
everything is worthless, and I can never find the motivation to do anything.

I pick myself up again, figure out what to do and move along that path. If I didn't I'd have probably thrown myself off the edge by now. Everybody deals with it differently, I take it in bulk and sort it from there. That's just me though
I can't do that anymore, I need to learn to not look down on myself so much, and let myself improve my encouraging myself to work hard.

Good on you. All I can say is keep up with it. I do this for myself, but I can only do it in bursts. I'll be motivated for a week or two then it goes away. A couple months later it may show up at finals or mids for school, but then it's back to doing stuff last minute and general procrastination.

I've also realized that I can't depend on others. I need to learn to stand on my own two legs, or else none of the projects I work on will ever get done.

I'm just afraid over what I'll lose from letting go ...

I know the feeling you're describing, but for me (maybe you too) it's a physical thing of moving out. The one time I did, I had my gf, somebody to help (though didn't) and lean on. Now it'd be me alone and that scares the HELL out of me. You aren't alone like this and the people on the board will help in any way they can if you vent or generally chat about it. Suggestions, comfort that you're not alone, and general good feeling of camaraderie to push you on.

I am not disguising my spite in the least when I'm openly speculating on the mental health of a coworker. To the point where I refer to her as nothing else but "stupid crazyass bitch-whore".

I'm crumbling. Every day it gets worse. Always something else to chip away at me. I've been trying to fill the void with all sorts of things but nothing's working. I think I've just been pushed right over the edge lately and being surrounded by IDIOTS isn't helping.

I find my body, and my breasts in particular, disgusting.


I look better clothed than naked.

While I lack the ability to make a specific counter-arguement, I can think of at least one person who would disagree, and I trust his opinion in such matters.

My girlfriend has accused me of something recently, and the more she says it, the less of a counter-argument I seem to have. I don't think I can deny it any longer.

I think I might be a hipster.

For reasons I need not discuss, I find myself really understanding a lot of the old Linkin Park songs. Some of those lyrics are really connecting with me. It's weird.

Do you have something crawling in your skin and wounds which will not heal? I'm sure you should see a doctor about that. :D

I just saw someone I haven't seen in eight years. It might be nine.

She's the girl I had a crush on for eight-and-a-half years. And I was totally fine with having not seen her in so many years. I had gone from the point of sighing and reciting her name the way some people would say, "God, give me strength" to hardly thinking about her. It took a while, and it might all be for naught.

I wasn't even making videos when I last saw her. I've done a lot in that time, I guess. I wrote a novel, a novella, and about a dozen short stories. I made a film in college and nine shorts. I started a review show. I traveled abroad for the first time.

I was shocked, but after a few minutes, I felt the same as always.

When I first met LRR, I was surprised how unreal the whole day felt. I thought that meeting them the second time would help shake that, but it didn't. Every memory I have of those two events feels like something I might just make up.

When I flew out to Victoria for Desert Bus, I thought it would simply be too much for my mind to reconcile and it would finally break through and wake me up out of this. I was on the plane, thinking, "It just hasn't hit me yet." And I spent almost two weeks living with LRR. I have a Canadian $5 bill in my wallet and the LRR chainmail zipper-pull on my keychain. I went there. It's a fact.

It still doesn't feel all that real. It still feels like something I might make up. The Pacific Northwest just wasn't enough of a culture shock, I guess.

For me, seeing her again was, I thought, the last horcrux of my depersonalization. I really thought this would be the thing to snap me out of it. For years, I was absolutely petrified that seeing her would wake up all the dormant feelings and I'd be back where I was when I was 15. I haven't even friend-ed her on Facebook. (I've had one minor crush since then.)

I'm relieved that hasn't happened, but perhaps it's too early to tell. On the other hand, it seems there really is no way out of the dictionary. There is nothing so anticipated, so surprising, so dreaded, that it won't feel just plain not real when it happens. Not unreal. Just not real.

If I'm going to go through life with all the brightness turned down, I don't also want to be nursing a crush from thirteen years ago, too...
