>>25538896 I made it a resolution to start treating women like shit, and I've been bullying them on apps like tinder and yik yak fairly recently. I'm gonna have to wait and see if I have the balls to harass whores on campus when the semester starts later this month.
>>25539432 I'm kind of in the same boat. I'd like to visit Japan, not as an obnoxious weeb fuck, just to observe their culture. I think if I could handle that I'd be ready to become more independent. But I'm pretty scared to be honest.
>>25539517 Yeah. I thought about travel in eastern europe where costs would be cheaper. Just to live, basically, get the experience of independent living.
Then I set a more achievable goal of travel in my own country (UK), but so far I didn't really manage that. The idea of dealing with people, doing things like renting an apartment on airbnb or whatever, collecting keys and the possibility of having to make smalltalk is just too scary.
>>25539596 Try starting smaller. If you can't hold small talk with the people in your community, then you can't do it somewhere foreign to you. Baby steps man.
>>25539630 I'm glad you enjoyed it, that gives me hope. I'm actually looking to really crack down on studying the language because I feel like I'll learn a lot more, and have more fun, if I can talk to some people about what life is like there.
>>25539055 Like I said a few days ago, maybe check out Palahniuk's technique of scheduled suicide as some kind of ethics of effort (itw in The Believer) He draws on the fact that small things (like paperwork) are always easier when you're trying to avoid something much worse (death, that he schedules at day 7)
>>25539902 Was going from West Aus to Canada (then was going to work my way across canada, then through north america, europe, india, nepal, etc down through south east asia and back to West Aus) but the best flight had a 2 night layover in in Japan. I moved some shit around and turned it into ~8 nights.
Landed in Narrita, got cab to a train station and a train to tokyo, stayed in the some shitty hotel that was really expensive but super central and kinda just hungout for 7 days. Lots of food (oh my god the food!) and exploring on foot. I had a Lonely Planet guide and just did things I could from that. Museums, nightlight, sumo, expat bars, FOOD! markets, temples, more food, so much walking around.
Fuck, this was all 8 years ago now, how time flys anon.
>>25539902 I too made a trip alone, at 26, from France to London. I was lucky enough to be at least in the friendzone of a french girl who had moved to London. She invited me for her bday, I decided to go. Went to hotel.com and booked a room. Bought new clothes, then laundromat, hairdresser, etc. Took the Eurostar tunnel for the 1st time. I was so nervous I passed through the metal detector with my bag, in a hurry, I totally forgot to give my bag to the security guy. Right from the beginning of the trip, and despite wearing a suit (!), I was humiliated and caught as a pleb who only pretended he was a frequent traveller. But then it got better, I made a new friend right in the train, I told him I would have a lot of free time alone in London, he gave me his number and everything. Friendzone behaved as a Queen as usual, she totally forgot me, made me wait an hour. I had a big bag with me all the time, I looked like a tourist, I didn't know where to put it. We took a taxi (cab) from her dorm to her boyfriend's roommates place in Pimlico (a very posh neighborhood). It was weird taking a taxi, I felt like Cinderella. The party went well, had to speak english, then slept on a couch. Then I had 2 days alone. My hotel room turned out to be the worst room in history (a very cold november, no heating, I felt like a bum and thought I would die, but was too beta to say anything...) It's real nice to be able to go where you want, with noone to interfere, I went to Brixton, to the Victoria Gallery, found the Rough Trade record store, went to the Tate Modern, got lost at some point (looking for Rough Trade) and realised I was in Notting Hill, like in the movies, the cars were impressive.
Also, my friendzone refused to show me around the city (always found me moderately creepy, I guess), but introduced me to brit friends of hers, it was quite a challenge to be alone with pure brits, as the accent is hard to get.
