WWN's Topic of Depressing Things and ANGST

Post by Pkdragon » Wed May 05, 2010 3:27 pm

shinji wrote:i will not run away
so yeah i might be failing my first college class this semester

and it's all my fault kinda though it's more that i've been depressed, more than a little bit obsessive, and running off way too little sleep these past few months, getting sick a couple weeks ago was also immensely disruptive. but that still means that it's all my fault because if i was in a more solid state of mind i wouldn't have picked such a stupid thesis for my research paper and i would have remembered to actually do the library research assignment worth 10% of my damn research paper grade and i wouldn't have left it to the last minute out of escapism, ultimately the fault lies in my bad judgement and that just makes it all the worse y'know if it was just something that happened to me that sucked i could say "hey that sucked" but the fact that i let it happen means that i have some character faults

though as i mentioned in the other topic it is shaping up about as good as an ill fated paper can shape up, there's still a good chance i'll fail it, and the guy's syllabus explicitly states that if you fail the paper you fail the class regardless of your other grades.

not to mention my other essay grades aren't great and my participation isn't great because having the night shift on wednesday means i tend to forget to set my alarm wednesday night and there's no way i'm waking up without that alarm so yeah i've missed class a couple times, this just means that my participation grade is not that great so even if somehow i manage to score a D on the paper i might still end up in failing territory

my advice to you all is not to take night shifts if you have a class at say 9:30 because it completely fudge with your sleep schedule the whole week and i dunno i have a hard time functioning when low on sleep

made this topic to counter the other one because i really don't think i have a right to be happy right now

sometimes being depressed is the right state of mind

tomorrow lol

i'm going to work my ass off to get it into tip top shape but yeah

to be fair i started the research about a month ago, but that was part of the problem, that was when i started getting caught in the quagmire that was vietnam

part of the problem is that i was baffled about my thesis. i had one, i didn't like it, but i couldn't think of an alternative one. i say thesis but it's actually question and thesis.

we read a book, then we created a question based on the book, and then we created a thesis to answer the question, but i never really liked my question or thesis but haven't been able to think of anything better so i've been proceeding with it anyway, in hind sight the best move would have been to change my thesis as soon as i had my first doubts about it, maybe even ask the teacher about it, but hind sight is always 20-20

plus i've got this thing about talking to teachers i know you're supposed to be able to do it but quite frankly teachers intimidate me and always have and i have no idea how to go about talking to them, so asking a teacher for help is something i don't think i've ever done

That's your biggest mistake, darling. Make an effort to humanize yourself--add a face to the name in the top corner of your paper. When a prof realizes you're an 'A' student (i.e. have an academic track-record of excellence), a hardworker, or even a human being (with a job, dreams, etc etc) beyond meek in-class contributions, they're inclined to hand out nicer grades, extensions, and one-on-one time for reworking difficult theses. Hindsight's 20/20 but going to your prof a month ago would've been the best option. Send an email: hey, when are you free? Wait for a response, set up a time, and go. There's no special effort required; if it's simple shyness, shake it off. You don't know how to talk to a teacher? There's no rulebook--you'd chat with them like any person albeit respectfully.

It might not seem fair, but the people that get good grades set aside time to talk with profs. They deserve the grades too. They're putting effort in the class. They're showing professors that they care. Try it in next year's classes.

But that doesn't help you now and makes me sound like a broken record (I've said it so many times before). Write the best damn paper you can, deary. Show the prof you've been working hard regardless of what you've missed. And if you fail, what's one fail in a college course? Fail is the wrong word. It means taking a single spring or summer course sometime before the end of your four years. It might lower your GPA, but if you're not planning on law or grad school, who cares what the number says?

Also on the topic of angsty things: I can hear the fat chick getting it on upstairs with her boytoy and it makes me want to hurl. I shouted 'shut the fudge up' and that seemed to help :)

This happened today at my university

6 people were hospitalized due to flying debris at an outdoor barbecue that could have been postponed until the next day and $80k in damages was done when 5 solar panels flew off one of the engineering buildings.

oh yeah and the dorms lost power for like an hour

thank you, that's half the reason i made this topic

i mean, it's amazing, i actually felt better once i got all that off my chest. the situation is still nasty, but i was able to turn my thoughts to other stuff. like the fact that i did make one decision and bought two books "English Grammar for Dummies" and "Research Papers For Dummies," both of which I plan to give a good read over the summer.

Also taking a class "The Essay" which might help. It might hurt, depending on the quality of the instruction and course work. But it's an important part of my minor so I might as well get it done with now while I actually can possibly benefit from what the class teaches.

but yeah, no two ways about it, i messed up and i'm probably going to receive hell from it from my parents. my current plan is what treed suggested- making it as good as possible. well my real current plan is making sure my other two borderline classes (high C's atm but that could change) do not fall. Then I would be in serious crumpets.

finals week is fun stuff. >_>
You don't know how to talk to a teacher? There's no rulebook--you'd chat with them like any person albeit respectfully.
this is probably the root of most of my problems- i'm really bad at talking with people in general, not just teachers. teachers just make it worse because there's such a distance between us, but i seriously am really bad at socializing with people. it's a long story and a completely different topic, and it would mean another fence of text of ANGST so i'm not going to go into detail atm but let's just say that "chatting with them like any person" doesn't help me too much >_>

My gran died suddenly at the weekend within the space of about 2 hours. Fortunately it was a very painless death thanks to doctors and she died consciously with her all of her family around her bed. No better way to go, I suppose. Was very disturbing seeing someone die in real life. She was 78. She had a stroke and her body basically packed up. She smoked all her life so her heart and lungs were in a pretty dire condition, liver was on the way out too.

So I'm growing further and further apart from people, and I don't know how to change that. Some people are even no longer friends and I don't really know why. Maybe I'm not giving people enough space? People rarely start conversations with me, it feels like.

Also, AP Euro test tomorrow, and I'm just afraid that the essays are gonna really suck as our teacher underprepared us and even though I studied on my own, I don't know how I'll do. I got back a truly horrible interim, too (78 in AP bio!?). My fault due to laziness...and I wish I didn't procrastinate so much. Ugh.

Oh, and I'm in the slow heat in the mile for Lower State. And I most likely won't make it to the state meet unless I magically improve over 35seconds (5:45 right now, 4th place overall is around 5:10). I'll try do do OK my own heat, but still.

I have finished uni, I've got a full-time job and I've been able to pursue my art. I feel as though I have everything I asked for last year. I feel as though I have no right or reason to be unhappy. But I still feel that same sadness time to time - but now I can't pin it down on anything for certain.

I'm not sure I want to pin it down on something. To blame one particular situation for my sadness will likely only lead to disappointment when that situation changes but the sadness remains. But I feel directionless, I feel like I need to move towards something. So lately I've been moping about moving out of home.

There are little and big things that contribute to my growing intolerance for my house. The way my father talks to me like I'm a pet dog, or the fact that I can't find food here without having to search two fridges, four freezers and around six "pantries" - and then find out the food was hidden away somewhere else. Or that the food has been there for two years. Or that it's crawling with maggots. The way my mother talks about people - to be "optimistic" is a bad trait. The way my parents talk about each other, putting me in the middle. That the dishes here are rarely cleaned properly. The fact that Terr has opened my eyes to the fact that a family doesn't have to function like this.

But I don't know if I can move out. I feel totally inadequate and incapable. My laziness and disinterest in placing myself between my parents have left me unable to look after myself fully. I have been uninterested in cooking because it means searching aforementioned fridges, because when I take something my parents will grumble about the other taking their food, because when I'm in the kitchen my father will make irritating cooing over "oh, good girl you can cook!" etc. Similarly for cleaning and tidying. And leaving the house to get to uni/work has been made easy for me - as annoying as it is that my father demands to be able to drive me to work, it is convenient.

I don't know if I'll be allowed to move out. And if I do, (especially without their approval) I know what to expect will be said about me. It won't mean anything but it will still damage my fragile ego. (I am over-sensitive with praise and criticism.) I wonder if I should buy a house. I wonder if I will be able to take everything I own and box it up - I feel as though I own so much crap I wouldn't be able to move it all. I wonder what my parents will do once they no longer have a buffer between them. I wonder if my reasons for wanting to move out are worthwhile reasons, whether moving out is the right step to take from here, whether it will resolve anything. I wonder if having to fend for myself will leave me feeling more depressed.

tl;dr I'm not quite right yet and am uncertain about what to do next.

allete aren't you like 22 or something?

for fudge sake i understand overbearing asian parents (no i don't but pretend I do); but really, do they expect you to stay in the house until you're married or something?

regarding cooking & cleaning - you learn these quickly once you move out. the biggest thing you need to worry about is how the fudge to get to your job and making sure it's a tolerable commute time. everything else in your life will fall from there.

also as a warning you may not think it now but living alone can be awfully lonely so if you already feel isolated from society/people/whatever even slightly i wouldn't really recommend it.

Sven, conservative immigrant parents (not just Asian) have (spoken/unspoken) expectations for daughters to live with them until marriage. It's less about religious bs than it is 'what's everyone in the immigrant/non-white community going to say about my daughter.' You can say all you want about being 'over 18' or 'hey just move out' but it's never that simple: move out and you alienate your parents and start your extended family gleefully flapping their gigantic mouths. Immigrant parents also tend to baby their children (even as adults); you don't feel prepared to stake out on your own intellectually, financially, and hey, sexually too. It's difficult crumpets.

I feel for you, Ale honey. It ain't easy. It's been easier for me because I'm a guy, but living with a conservative Muslim father came with its own problems. And don't get me started on couple-child dynamics in mixed marriages.

Dunno what to say about how to get your parents to let you move out, but I will say this: Moving out is intimidating but worth it so much.

It's NOT as hard as you'd think, adapting to living on your own. Even a socially disfunctional kid like me was able to figure it out, and I don't even have a driver's license (of course, I have the dining hall a short walk away so that took care of a couple of problems right there). It's a bit of a shock at first, living on your own, but it's worth it. It's amazing the little perks that living on your own has. Like not having to make your bed. =D

I would say to start with an apartment if you can. I doubt you need a full house just yet. For one thing, I think a house with only one person in it would be kinda depressing and lonely, while an apartment is nice and compact and always filled =D

In any case, if there's one thing I am a total proponent of it's moving out on your own. I was so afraid to take that step, but once I did, I could never go back (well, except in the summer. But this will be the last summer I go back home, because I WILL get my driver's license this summer. After that, I'm living on my own full time).

I got it done, turned it in. Not sure I like it especially my conclusion though the rest of my paper is better than i thought it would be so I'm trying to not think about it because I feel stupid and because i have two other finals which are more important atm

but even if it gets a decent grade (which it probably won't) i get a feeling i'm going to tear myself up over this for years

he asked me when i turned it in if i "had fun" which was my turn to giggle a little hysterically and tell him that yeah it was probably the hardest paper i've ever written but i had fun in a way

and then i fled the office as fast as i could manage

Actually I was sprinting indoors to close the windows in my girlfriend's room since she has books on the windowsill and it looked like there was gonna be rain, so I got inside like 3 seconds before the winds struck. >_>

She was outside though and I'm glad she was fine. One of my friends lost his glasses when a gust of wind carried them 30 feet up in the air, though, which we all had a good laugh about later.

Moving out is definitely what you should do if you hate living with your parents. You have no idea how liberating it is.

Just get an apartment comfortably close to work and worry about the technicalities of moving your trash there later. It'll work itself out.

Also, solitude is a great thing.

Don't take it out of context or proportion, lol. Leaving home is hardly raping a child.

I'm not all that surprised about that. Such is the human nature, after all.

Not really. People just suck at making good things happen.

Good things happen all the time. People just fail to acknowledge them.

I thought the happy topic would be motivational. Turns out it's not: when you're unhappy, seeing happy people only reminds you how unhappy you are.

But seeing other unhappy people is emotionally supportive, cause you feel you're not alone.

Misery loves company.

I suppose you get what look for. If you don't look for good things, you won't find any.

Summer starts for me in three days, and I don't have a job lined up, don't have the money to do what I want (and don't have the money to finish what I've started... that computer, for example), and while I want school to end so I can be out of Hartford, I don't want to be killing myself with boredom once summer starts. Which is pretty much guaranteed to happen.
Make good choices
