It was not an arc in the sky, but a refraction from the ground. Idk what brings it about, but it was kinda pretty I thought.

My chest kinda hurts.

So, I went out for some drinks with some friends last night. Invited along that girl I've been talking about with whom I went out for a while, but who decided we should just be friends. She mentioned not having a lot of friends, so I wanted to bring her into the friend group I recently made.

Even though I still fancy her, I thought accepting that it isn't reciprocated would go down a lot easier than it is. She mentioned that she might be moving to a town the next province over to move in with the guy she's seeing who is out there, and I felt something snap inside my chest.

Just kinda sucks knowing that I failed to make her feel all the things this other fellow is. Especially because I feel like it was my own lack of ability to act romantically that prevented her from feeling any chemistry, rather than incompatibility. I mean, I've went out with people with whom I just wasn't a match for before, but it feels like a failure when you feel you are a match, but just failed to do the right things. Especially when our culture puts all the burden of escalating on the male, it can be hard for shy dudes like me to really capture anybody's interest.

Also knowing that she got serious enough with this guy in the time since we stopped going out to want to move in with him, across borders, even.

I of course can't tell her any of that shit, she shouldn't have to deal with putting placating another person's feelings over pursuing her own. But I feel like it must be coming through, the way our ride when she dropped me off had more silence than conversation

I know the only thing to do is see other people and not get stuck on one u blew it with, but it's not like I'm having success with anybody else, anyway. And even if I were, I haven't met anybody I've dug as much as her. Like, I like everything about her down to her Tourette's tics, her perpetually dilated pupils, her belief in and fear of ghosts. The way she almost looks like a ghost.

I know, the oldest story ever. Person likes person who is with somebody else.

I hate myself for having such juvenile feelings I should have outgrown by now. I'm too old to be whining about girls.

It sounds like you aren't actually cool with being her friend. Speaking from experience, if you have an unrequited love and you keep trying to hang out with them knowing you still have those feelings, it's just likely to agitate and exacerbate your feelings of loneliness or rejection. I understand the thought process of, "This person is so cool, I really do still want to try and be their friend," but you should question yourself seriously if you would go out of your way to spend time with her if you had no romantic interest. Are you actually trying to hang out with her because you sense the potential for long term friendship, or because you are still trying to be near her despite how things turned out? You could just be torturing yourself, and continuing to hang with her could actually just be causing you to spin your wheels deep down in the muck of heartbreak whereas you could potentially have moved further on emotionally at this point. Maybe I'm wrong, but this is a self-harming behavior I have personally engaged in over and over and over.

erm, hi lads. so I hope this is the drunk thread, right?

so I've been drinking so much it's totally fucked my ability to drum. and that's the saddest fucking thing in the world - at least for me.

i'm watching Rocket @ Metro 93, realizing I can't play those parts anymore, and sobbing myself into the fucking ground.

I actually messaged Jimmy C on instagram, like, hey man, I'm really fucked and I wondered if you had any advice. He hasn't responded yet/if at all.

I've got Geek in the next tab as well. So that'll be a fun trip; I used to be able to jam these motherfuckers at 110 MPH just like the band....but I can't anymore. Ruby > By Starlight was nothing for me a year ago....but now it's such a struggle.

Sorry, I don't know why I'm posting this.

ram. i do not say this to put you down, but your JC obsession is reaching unhealthy proportions. you need to back down a bit, man.

just try to think about something else and listen to different music. let music come out of you because it needs to, not because you need to keep on par with Jimmy or whatever it is.

Do you mean that you're not able to drum when you're sober?

You do have periods of sobriety, right?
