Damn these bodies. I can only listen to one song at a time. I want to listen to like 50 songs right now.

I want to stay up late and do all the things i used to stay up late doing. But my old ass is breaking down and I'm going to be in bed by 9:30 at the latest I'm sure.


On the bright side.... it's earlier than I thought it was.

I have two essays, a History test, a math quiz, a vocab quiz, and two assignments all due Monday. And if that wasn't enough, conferences (as well as my birthday) are next week, adding on to the stress and pressure of being a good student and getting (and keeping) my grades up. It's going to be just another friggin long, sleepless night, isn't it?

While I have all A's now, I seriously can't afford to blow it and let them spiral down. It's going to be a crap-ton of work and I'm sure it will all be worth it in the end, but for now, I'm on the verge of losing control of balancing being a student and living a life of a fifteen-year-old child who just wants to have fun and have a good, stress-free life.
Just some kid who likes to draw and sprite. Thinking of starting a comic and actually sticking with it.

Aaaaaannnnnd here we are.... I had to put my comic in hiatus.
Life get too busy this month, I end my days too exhausted to draw as much as I want.
I feel so frustrated and defeated *lies down end pretend to be a carrot*
Just a comic banner down here.

Good for you for sticking to it. You're a lot more motivated than I was at your age and that's what's going to make you successful as an adult.

That said, make sure to enjoy this part of your life as well. Prioritize what things really need to get done, or need your full devoted attention, and be sure to spend time hanging out and doing dumb shit you're only allowed to do when you're a teenager.

(Re: the dumb shit- I don't even mean like partying or getting in trouble or anything like that. If you want to take a day where you spend 8 straight hours playing a stupid game and only taking a break to go to the bathroom this is your optimal time. If you want to stay up 24 hours straight to do the 24 hour comic challenge this is your optimal time.)

Nothing I love more than waking up optimistic and motivated and then getting reminded that most of your closest family members secretly resent you and collapsing on the couch trying not to cry because everyone's been ripping you apart over everything. Maybe I can reach an emotional threshold and my feelings will crash like a computer process and I'll be able to get one of the many things I planned on doing tonight done.

*EDIT*
For every shitty hurtful person in my life there's another who that actually makes me feel like a person and helps keep me from falling further into the abyss. I take them for granted.

Are you ok buddy? If you feel like talking to someone, you know how to contact me.
I'm just a guy on the internet but I'm a good listener... I suppose. ;)

I always appreciate the offer, but things are better now, it's just been a dramatic couple of days.

I love finding such topics on the web. First of all, I hate myself for spending much money on useless trash. After reading [potential advert removed] I spent tons of money on hair masks and shampoos from Amazon, but my hair is still one big mess. I hate ads, I hate amazon, I hate myself.

Why does this always happen. I feel so defeated. I get pumped, I get confident, I tell myself I'll get shit done and then I tell followers I'll get shit done and it all goes to shit. I get destroyed somehow, someway, by something, I get mentally and/or emotionally destroyed and I sit and I cry or stare at the ceiling and I think "oh boy I better keep my mouth shut or it'll sound like I'm just using depression as an excuse to not get work done like I always do" and then get stuck in a loop of "I'm not drawing because I'm depressed but I'm getting more depressed because I do this all the time and I said I'd get it done and I always fuck myself over by giving people my word and agadfhahafhjafjahfjadha"
Why can't I just live a typical, happy life with typical, nice family members. Why do I have to have anxiety. Why do I have to struggle to communicate. Why do things that are so small to everyone else have to matter so much to me. And when people tell me to just "get over it, stop letting it get to you, only you can change how you think/feel about it, etc" it only makes me feel worse. Like I'm not strong enough to just shove it all aside like everyone else I know can, I'm not strong enough to go through life unaffected by the things people say or do to me, I'm not strong enough even though every waking moment I'm having to shove things aside just to operate, just to be a human. When I'm with friends I can distract myself from unhappiness, but then I'm right back to the other side of my life where I feel alone and distant from my family. Now for the next part of the loop; I'll post here because I have nowhere else to vent, I'll feel embarrassed, I'll get over it for a little while and then walk on eggshells until my next meltdown.
To those who've seen me vent here like this for the past few years this is business as usual, don't mind me I'm just gonna wangst at my keyboard and lay on the couch. Maybe I can charge myself up with caffeine and spend all night getting done what I had planned to get done 4-5 hours ago.

So, this isn't widely known among very many people, but I'm a godfather, a legitimate godfather, to a friend of mine's little boy, down in Texas. (For those who don't know what that is, basically, if anything were to happen to my godson's folks, I'd end up taking care of him.) His name is Dakota, he's about three years old now, and the kid's a sweetheart. His real daddy is no longer in the picture, hasn't been since right before he was born, but my friend's new husband (I had the pleasure of officiating their wedding earlier this year) adopted Dakota as his own son, alongside his own two little boys. Couldn't ask for better people to know.

I was talking to my friend last night, and she told me Dakota keeps saying that "Uncle Brennen (as he refers to me) is coming home! ("Home" being his parents' house in Texas)" He's so excited, he's bouncing off the walls about it, and even asked Santa if he could make it happen.

Unfortunately, I'll be up here in Montana, working over both Christmas and New Year's. I deploy shortly after that, too.

I'm not even a parent, but her telling me what Dakota said hit me pretty hard. You don't know heartbreak until you have to look a little kid in the eye and watch his reaction as you try to explain why you won't be coming home for Christmas. It's even worse when you have to do it over Facetime.

Just in time for the Holidays, I've got a big ass pimple on my nose that makes me look eligible for Reindeer recruitment. Merry Christmas :?:
