Except for the fact that I have an occasional beer or glass of wine, this post might as well have been written by me.  Even the wisdom teeth at 16 thing!

You're being overly dramatic but I'm guessing you believe all that is true. I work at a halfway house and one of the things we do is help clients develop a support group (family, friends, coworkers, etc).

Wanna know what the easy/fastest way is to make a friend? It's not a bar or a church. It's volunteering. Volunteer somewhere where there will be other volunteers. You won't be coworkers, just two people with kind hearts and at least one thing in common (the place you volunteer).

Volunteering also helps you feel better about yourself because you are helping others even when you yourself feel you are the one needing help. We all need help sometimes.

Volunteering is also HUGE on a resume even if it's the only thing on that resume. If you don't have a job or can't find one then volunteer somewhere. You'll be busy, have a reference for a future job, feel better about yourself and life, and most of all...meet new people.

No joke. If you're hurting, find someone who is hurting more and help them.

If you want a Myspleen invite, just PM me and ask.

I would recommend experimenting with your consciousness at least once, not because it's cool or fun, but just because it is a unique experience. When people say it expands the mind they aren't joking...except for when they are.

Really, that is all you can say, is volunteer for something? What the hell should I volunteer for? I have no clue what to do.

Volunteer for Loaves & Fishes or at a soup kitchen. It's easy, it's only a couple hours once a week and you can volunteer weekly or monthly just let them know in advance when you are available.

Everyone should do something like this at least once. It will be a very humbling experience and it'll give you some perspective as to just how horrible your life isn't.

other options besides volunteering?

Do you have a job? If not, get one (even if it's the food, service, or retail industry). A lot of places hire on more people for the holidays. Go to your local job center. There tons of resources there including volunteer opportunities.

Have a job, but need a friend? You could join a club or some organization. I have friends that I made solely through hanging out at bars but we only seem to hang out when drinking is involved. You could go to church (I don't recommend it). Even Atheists have meetings.

No job, no friends? Go to college. Even if you have no money you would be surprised home much state and federal loans cover. Also student loans have low interest rates and you can defer payments until you get a job. Even if it's community college or vocational school. You'll steer your life in the right direction, meet lots of new people, schools have counselors, and you'll a future to look forward to.

I have a job, and I went to college (BS degree). But it was in a major that although it wasn't a joke degree (chemistry), it was something I didn't really want to do for the rest of my life, and it was too late to switch majors. So I blew that oppurtunity. Plus I get absolutely no emotional support from my family, yet I am stuck under my parents roof and have done little but go to work for low pay for the past four years.

Also never smoked a thing. I love my tea and coffee. I go many months between having any alcohol. I've never had a desire for drugs.

It would be doing something. Meet the psychos before moving in with them.

Recently an ad was posted there on my behalf. A single response received. An older gay gentleman offered to share his studio. There was no mention of money but there was an ellipsis...

It doesn't hurt to only list an ad.

I wish my wisdom teeth would've come out. Mine only show up on X-ray, they're buried in my jaw, and that has prevented me from getting braces. That's why I have crooked teeth.

On more things to bitch about, ever blow your nose in the sink, early in the morning, you feel the booger come out, but can't figure out for the life of you where the hell it's gone? It has happened for the nth time to me this morning, and it's probably gone down the drain. But sometimes I've found the bastards in my fingers, or in my hair, sitting there like they're mocking me... Sodding flying boogers...

People do this? As in, blow their nasal mucus onto their surroundings without inhibition?

Sounds disgusting.

You just push on one nostril to close it and blow out the other. My fucking roommate does it all the time. It's always disgusted me.

I'm aware of how to blow a snot rocket. I just didn't realize people do it the way you describe - indoors, with no regard for where it goes.

I send snot rockets into the sink then I wash them bitches down. But what you're conveying sounds like someone sitting on the couch then shooting one onto the sofa pillow or something.

You should totally rub your anus on his pillow.

Of course I use tissues. As I said, it was in the sink. It feels convenient to do that while I'm waking up and washing my face.

Although I occasionally stick my finger up my nose, when no one's looking.
