Depression's a funny thing. Not funny like, say, a fat person falling down, or Snooki being hit by a car, but funny like "fucked up". I could be fine for days, weeks, months, whatever and then bam. I'm in my room listening to Elliott Smith and crying. Most days, I can deal with it; push it aside and get on with my life, but when it builds and builds, sometimes you just break. And I think I'm broken.

Sometimes... well, most of the time, it's about a girl. It makes it tougher to deal with it, especially at work. If I were straight, I could say "Oh, this guy I like dumped me." and I'm sure I'd get even the basest amount of sympathy. But as my boss is the type of person to call Johnny Weir "Johnny Queer", something tells me I wouldn't get a real pleasant reaction if I came out. It's like in high school, when I was just sickeningly in love with this girl, and vice versa. We were together (albiet online) for almost a year when she broke things off with me. I've never been one to lie, so I couldn't even tell my friends that a guy broke my heart. I just nursed it on my own; not that I think they noticed at all. I didn't know what a real friend was until recently.. (I should add that I'm talking about someone I see often. The internet's fantastic, but something about face-to-face excludes people like The Almighty, or my Butch, both of whom I love.)

I'm kind of at a loss on what to do. I'm not suicidal - for all the talk, it's just me trying to psych myself out of doing it. Some weird-ass defense mechanism I have where talking about it and making myself more depressed just kind of brings me back from that edge. So I'm in the purgatory of depression. It's lasted about a month so far, with a brief interval in between - someone I thought could make me happy, but just made it worse in the long run.

Basically, I've given up. Rejection hurts a hell of a lot when it's one right after the other after the other. Putting yourself out there is hard enough but when no one wants you, it's worse. Some people are supposed to meet their soulmates or their perfect match or whatever the hell, and be together forever. Some people find brief flings or small romances and are happy with it. Some people are just supposed to be alone, I guess. Maybe I'm meant to do something great. Maybe when I'm gone, no one'll notice. Who knows?

Remember the movie Homeward Bound, where Shadow falls in this muddy pit and fucks up his leg? (Spoilers) I feel like that damn dog. I just keep clawing and struggling but in the end, I just slip back down. But like a moron, I keep trying. Maybe I'll make it out and limp on to someone who'll be waiting for me; cue triumphant music, hugs, credits.

Trying again before the CCEE

I'm really hoping to find a men's frock coat and a brown wide-rimmed fedora for a cosplay adventure.

If anyone has one kicking around or knows where to get them, I'd love them forever. (I've been looking at Value Village for a couple years, on and off, no luck.)

Amy Pond


Been a few months (at least) since I've actually done one of these, and though I sincerely doubt that anyone would read it, some of it needs to be/should be said.

Voila. A cut.Collapse )

101 Reasons Why I Dread My 10 Year Reunion: Or, Mara Writes Her Memoirs on LJ.

I've been feeling introspective lately, which can be good or bad - in this case, I'm not even sure. Talking to Stacey-Lynn has made me think a lot about high school/junior high and how goddamn glad I am that it's over. I wonder what things would be like if I went back and re-did it, knowing what I know now.

I'm sure I'd punch Amanda Karadimas in the fucking face. I would knee her in the ovaries and tell her to back the fuck off. And by that one action, I'm sure my high school life would be a shitton better.

This is what you get when you mess with us..Collapse )

Movie/TV Review Revue!

Okay. So other than a movie that I'm pretty sure I dreamt about and probably doesn't exist.. (And damnit, now I can't remember enough to IMDB it), let's take a gander, shall we?

Shows I Broke Up With:

Heroes - I couldn't even be arsed to watch the first episode, to be honest. Last season was so hit and miss that the only moment that stood out for me last year was Sylar driving around with 'Psycho Killer' on the radio. Fuck, that was awesome.

Torchwood - Killing off Ianto in a completely useless manner was only part of it. I think RTDickhead's total disdain for his fanbase and the fact that he's the Stephanie Meyer of Sci-Fi (Just a giant fucking Mary Sue. Let's face it) is part of it. He ruined what made Jack such a great, fun, camp character, and turned Series 4 into the Jack and Gwen OMG WE'RE AWESOME Party Fun Time Revue.

Scrubs - I tried with Scrubs: The New Class, but it all just seemed old hat to me. No thanks.

NCIS - Meh. Same old shite. I'm done.

RTD Era Doctor Who: Suck a bag of dicks, RTD. I'm fucking sick of your obsession with Wose, and turning 10 into an emo little bitch. It's been the same old shite with flashes of brilliance (from other writers/directors) for three years, and now it's over. Bring 11 on, please. Now.

Because someone'll bitch that it's too long, and that'll be the only comment I get.Collapse )

So. 2009.


+ Made a couple new friends

- Ended 8 year friendship with The Victim

+ New job that I kind of love as a florist

- New job that doesn't pay well.

+ New kitty

- Had an insanely bad breakup in March.

+ Joined Mishaland

- Stopped writing, for the most part

- Massive emotional breakdown

+ Came out, semi-officially

So for all I can think of, it seems to be even. Still. Not entirely sure where the year left.
