>>274965021 My father has always lied to me, anon. Hes fed me bullshit conspiracies and shit advice as a kid. He couldn't teach me math, english, or anything properly when I was a child. And he always told me to ask him about it.
He always tried draning sympathy out of me when I caught onto him as well. He kept doing that to me and my sister, acting as if he was in pain or crying crocodile tears or giving a sob story- and if that didn't work he would lose his shit and wish I was never born or how I was so much better when I was younger. He kept doing this to me until I lost all trust and respect for him.
>>274965920 My parents were very similar anon. My mother would always twist every event to make herself into the victim and do everything she could to hurt my sister and I, calling us worthless and freaks any time we did something she didn't like. Eventually my sister broke away and tried to help me but my mother always tried to tear us apart. I finally broke away too and now my sister and I are really close but I still have mother issues. My dad died early thankfully so I didn't have to go through any beatings or anything.
>Be 6 >Rich neighbours had a kiddie car >They'd always drive by me and my pals and laugh >Swore to myself I'd get one too and show them up >Parent's always told me I'd get one "Next-time"
They should have just said no instead of cock teasing me. Every fucking month when the SEARS Catalogue came in I'd circle that sick car and bookmark the page and let them now if it went on sale or anything.
>Hey dad, I really wanted to go to the water park. >We'll see. >They never take me there. >Think I have forgotten >Too shy and afraid to get them mad to ask again >A few years they later mention it, how I probably didn't care about it anyways. >tfw pretending I didn't care about it, even though I remember it to this day.
Raised by a single mother, but same thing as this anon pretty much. She explained why things weren't possible in ways I could understand, and when she said "we'll see" she really meant yes, just trying to hide the surprise.
>>274967469 Why do people do this? Just go with the flow for some shit and just don't bother raising a fuss sometimes?
Fuck that, I want to see what happens when I say something someone doesn't expect me to say.
"Actually I was constipated this morning because of all the noodle cups I ate. You see, I'm the type of person that holds his shit in for a week..", "I didn't forget; you didn't hold your promise. You lied to me.", "Actually [earlier excuse] didn't really happen. I lied to you."
>live in a small town >back at elementary school >dont even ask for something during xmas/birthdays >just tell them that i have gathered enough money and would like them to order vidya like power rangers the movie for mega drive >after many conversations get them to do it >i thank them and they throw witty remarks like how they paid postage for me fuck mang i just wanted some video games

>>274967160 That reminds me my mom got me a copy of macromedia studio that they already installed on their computers at work. I used to make a shit load of flash videos and games when I was younger. I wish I still had creative hobbies
>single mom who bought me whatever I wanted >didn't realize how much of a financial burden I was until I was 13-14 >stopped asking for anything but she still just went out and spend money on me even though I told her not to >now shes in massive debt >she still bought me designer suits for my birthday and shit every year >I've been paying off her debt for the past 18 months
honestly no regrets, it was awesome having everything I wanted when I was a kid and she always just wanted to show she loved me
>>274973198 >I wish I still had creative hobbies Same here, man... I used to create reaction images, regular "funny" photoshops, Youtube videos... If only I still had that spirit, with the smarts of today.

thanks for the blog /v/ i'm sure you dont give a fuck
>>274975167 Similar story but complete opposite >dad was a shitbag, haven't seen him since he beat my mom when I was 8 >mom raised me alone >she had a shit job, always poor, I never asked for anything, pirated all my games as emulation up to sharazaa/kazaa/limewire/DDL and then eventually torrenting, got one multiplayer game for each birthday and christmas and I cherished it >somehow never in debt, mom worked her ass off to provide >she got a better job, suddenly living outside of her means >every raise she started accruing more debt >now she works as a consultant pulling six figures and somehow her debt has magnified exponentially >still never ask for anything, afraid to even ask for birthday presents because she thinks to have way more money than she actually does >I barely work because I'm a neet but all I use up is toilet paper and food, and I cook every meal for the household.
Nah. I didn't ask for much, and I got whatever I did ask for. I did chores on the farm and when I was young I basically could just ask for stuff and I guess I never went over what the value of my work was to them because they never said no. I never skipped or halfassed anything I was asked to do.
If I asked for something big, I'd get extra work, I'd do it, and then I'd get whatever.
And I got to make money anyway I could if I wanted to, like baling, I could do that and sell the bales whenever I wanted. Also did fun stuff like bounties for other farmers, they'd pay me for various types of tails to confirm my kills.
I bought a shitload of c64 games that way. Had a guy up the road who raised minks and coyotes would stress them and that could fuck up their fur so he paid a premium for their tails for awhile, $50 a tail.
I'm kind've glad games were different back then or I would have ended up doing a lot of fetch quests to do a lot of fetch quests.
As a middle class family, I got pretty much the things I wanted most, but the little things on my wishlist were ignored. Not that bad of a compromise, honestly.
The only stupid thing was I wasn't allowed to play any "violent" games until I just started doing it anyways (this definition was flaky as hell anyways, it was basically just anything M-rated and FPS games). So one year I asked for Advance Wars and my Mom freaked out so I got Professor Layton instead. At least I lucked out that the guy behind the counter wasn't such a dickhole he just shoved some shovelware on me, and I like the PL games as a result.
As of recent, though, my Dad won't buy me anything. I asked him if it's because he thinks I'm too old for presents, but he never admits to it. I just want him to tell me the truth. He's extremely controlling about some things.
>>274976061 >I've never had a new years resolution in my life but I think I'm going to do something creative with my time again You think it's that easy? A new year's resolution? If you lose that spirit, it's gone, man.
i went back to the old house many years later after we left and it was completely renovated. Completely different family lives there now. When I asked my mother about it she said he moved back with his parents house (my divorce out of hate for my stepdad dont get me wrong but the family was falling apart financially and she was doing the heavy lifting and wanted to "cut the fat"). From what I hear from his son who isn't that bad now but is genuinly sorry for how he acted as a kid and confesses that he did most of what he did because his dad forced him. Turned out he was a horrible person to his real son behind everyones back and the ex took him away because he was fucking awful as a dad. he said his dad is a washed out old fat has been. I haven't seen either of them in years since.
I moved out of the house seven years ago, but my 12 year old sister still lives there. My parents pull all kinds of bullshit with her. >She's played her Wii and DS to death >Tell my mom I'll get her a 3DS for Christmas >First time, mom insists she already had a DS >Explain multiple times the 3DS isn't the same thing >She ignores me >Let sister play my 3DS >She loves it >Mom says sister doesn't even play games anymore so I shouldn't get it as a gift >My sister says she doesn't play games because she's tired of the same ones over and over >Get a 2DS at a yard sale in perfect condition for like 30 bucks >Comes with a bunch of shovelware >Tell mom I'm going to get her a Pokemon game to go with it >She complains that 5 games is too many already >Explain what shovelware is >Mom insists that it won't matter to her
This is the same woman who bought a Wii, a Wii Fit balance board, and like 6 EA/ubisoft shovelware games for it, played it for a week, then promptly let it sit at a dust collector.
>hey dad can I have the New Thing 2000 >"why?" >ummm... >"what do you need it for" >like... fun >"didn't we buy you the New Thing 1000 just last year" >that was 3 years ago dad >"you had that C in physics last month" >ok dad nice talking to ya
be grateful your parents are looking out for you. you were getting shitty taste in vidya. also you're STILL getting actual gifts from your parents? when i was 17 i was lucky if i got a fist full of cash, a new shirt and a cake. Keep in mind my parents were fucking loaded they just didn't want to spoil me or buy my love or some such shit.
>>274971884 It's much harder than people would make you think. It's possible to get on the bux for autism, but if you want a surefire way to get on the dole you want to go for schizophrenia. Also you should read uncle remus guide to autismbux
i'd get money from family for crimbo my dad would collect it in my 'account' sometime after the holidays we'd go to the toy store and, knowing precisely how much money was in my 'account', i'd ask to buy a toy my dad would rebuff me and tell me i don't need it, to pick a smaller one
why god dammit all it did was make me very good at keeping track of my money and even better at not denying my indulgences

>>274978167 Heh, twitter is the worst. Anyone remember that one kid who was bitching that he never got anything for christmas, then his parents read the post and completely fucking #rekt him, listed the $2000 worth of shit he got last year and said they were giving away the shit they bought him that year to kids who would actually appreciate it? >>274978263 >child realizes he/she's not getting it later >throws an even worse fit because now he's hyped BOY THAT PLAN SURE BACKFIRED
>>274965021 my mom and dad did this shit. they always complained about not having money. years later I find out that they're fucking millionaires and were trying to teach me a fucking lesson. now I buy all the games and shit I want since I'm not worried about retirement.
I'm still bitter about missing out on most games when I was a kid. seriously, that shit was not cool, and I would pawn shit while I was in college to make rent/pay bills because I thought my parents had no money
>>274978731 Fuck if I know anon, she has a shit car and we still live in the same house she was paying off when she was making 55k. If anything it's just lots of little things, $50 nicknacks here and there which add up considering how many she buys.

I feel bad since they feel bad when they can't get me anything. I never asked for anything for my birthday this year, asked my dad to loan me $250 a month ago to replace a broken monitor and last night when I said I'd have the money to pay him back after my next check he told me not to worry about it. I hate owing people money, and being a leech for a while's made me really hate to rely on him for anything. Meanwhile my brother and sister both owe him far more than $10k that he'll never see again.

>>274979553 Anon I've tried several times, for several years. And she knows my skills with money are stellar, I work 2-3 months per year, last job I had was a year and a half ago and I STILL have money saved up. I bought a $300 phone just 2 months ago and she was shocked, she couldn't believe I still had that much saved up, and I still have $100 in the bank for her Christmas present. But every fucking time I try to help her ration her money, every fucking time I say something like "are you SURE you should be spending money on that" she goes off on some retarded "IT'S MY MONEY AND I CAN SPEND IT HOWEVER I WANT" shit, and even when I point out "no, it's the BANK'S money, and you're accruing debt because of it" she goes silent and buys it anyway.
>>274978167 holy shit when i was a kid i'd only get like half of the things on my christmas list and a few neat other things they found that they thought i'd like, and even if the things i wanted most were the ones skipped over, i'd be hype as fuck and build a little fort out of the boxes of cool shit i got and use the hell out of all of them
aren't they probably gonna be putting phones in protective cases anyways? the color of the phone itself doesnt matter at all whatsoever if they do

When I was little my sister used to convince me to ask for consoles and shit when I just wanted simpler toys. My parents still bought me the consoles but I'm sure they knew what was going on, after all 4 year old boys usually don't ask for a Playstation and Tomb Raider 2.

I swear I covered my fucking tuition and then-some stealing phones that dumb rich kids had just left laying around. Most of the time it wasn't even outright theft, it was just a bad case of finder's keepers.

That she was way out of my league. She scoffed and said that "Leagues" don't exist and that she's happy. I'm not ugly, I have Crohn's disease so skinnyfag and I don't go full autism outside of /v/, but I still feel like she's way too good looking for me. She looks like Audrey Hepburn when she was younger, except she wears her hair down.

>>274982185 I've tried to get her to feel good about herself because I like to make people happy. She's a really cool person, too, not shallow in the least because she grew up not thinking about appearances. I've known her a few years, and we've been dating about 6 months now. I'll just treat her as an equal, because that's all we are. She's started showing an interest in vidya because of me which is really cool, because nobody I've ever dated has been interested in it. Started playing League of Legends, which is better than nothing. Hoping I can get her into something more enjoyable that we can coop together or something.
>>274978167 >>274981406 I live under a fucking rock and use some old ass samsung phone but why the fuck do people go and throw their shekels on ipod/ipad is having internet and an okay camera on your palm really that worth it?
>>274982526 iPad and iPod touches are generally bad ideas. I have an iPad I got as a handmedown from my family when they upgraded, and I only use it as a more mobile laptop. I'll take notes on it in OneNote in class or use it in bed to dick around on /v/ or YouTube. Other than that, it hardly gets much use.
>>274982526 I always imagine think in different generations there was like, just electricity and gas bills, then the cable bill showed up, now the internet bill, and with cell phones and that idea that even like 9 year old kids want one each with a constant internet connection, nowadays you gotta pay for a whole families fucking individual phones and everything.
Shit that must suck so much. The picture is a cute idea but now that I can register as an adult the idea that the kid with the ipad will probably barely use it, goddamn.

It's not much better for my race, I guess, but still. It's a culture I wish would get phased out. It's not good for anyone.
On a side note though I actually asked for the PS4 but only because I couldn't think of anything else and wasn't interested in having a big party. Just had a BBQ in the backyard with my best mates and they pre-ordered the PS4.

I'm actually pretty lucky. I don't make much but I give a lot of my money back to my parents since they paid for my schooling/
>>274983598 Just tell her "nevermind, I changed my mind." Reverse the victim roles. You'll at least get the satisfaction of letting her know you don't want her anymore. You don't want to be with a chick who isn't sure she likes you or not. It'll just make you feel on edge and insecure. Go try your luck with a different girl and don't dwell on the bad ones.

My mother used to beat me all the time when I was a kid, but well, I was no saint either, I would to everthing again the day after I got a beating.
But even so I loved my mom, she cared about me and my sister like few parents can, I remember the day she got a nintendo 8 bytes for me, around 94 or 96, it was such a happy day.
That was the last console she gave, I worked so I could buy my own games even at the age of 14. On my first day of work my mother cried because I was growing up too fast, she said I would soon leave her behind to live my own life.
In the end she left me behind, she died in 2011 in a car acident, just one week before my sister gave birth to my nephew. Its a strange thing, you go in life always thinking your family will never die before you, it can't happen, not to your family.
I used to think like that until the day death came calling.
>>274975995 >>I barely work because I'm a neet but all I use up is toilet paper and food, and I cook every meal for the household.
This part is really true for me. My parents want me to move out but I mean...it'd be the same out there as it is here. I'd only use money for toilet paper, food, electricity, internet, which I already help pay for.
Why does American culture want you to shove out your kids early as possible? I'm never having kids but if I were I would love (provided they're not shitheads) if they stayed with me, assuming they pitch in and help keep things running of course.
>>274984562 They claimed I stole it to the bank and they backcharged it. They found out only a couple days later so there was time. I also recieved a juvenile record because they had to report it to the police for the bank to accept it. Needless to say my account recieved a very angry message from the server owner.
But damn my life took a turn for the worse after this

>>274984778 >3 when I started playing Atari >4 when my Dad got the family a SNES >5 when I beat my first RPG >"5 is too young to play video games that you won so let me sell it and keep the profit you little shit"
>my brother is mostly a jew when it comes to money >takes medication since he is all sorts of "boohoohoo i feel so useless that i cant work" >40+ year old cousin approaches him and takes 800+ burgers of him as some kind of loan in a month >only find out by cornering bro since he seemed down during those days >mfw i am so angry that i want to murder both of them
thanks for reading my blog /v/ but at this point i dont know if i schould push for directly or play dumb since its not about the money but how a fucking relative exploited my dumb ass brother
>mom dated this man >even though technically not married, he lived with us for few years >they had a kid together >this guy just played WoW and EVE Online all day >relied on my mom for money >was also shit at WoW and EVE, often bought gold & isk (with my mom's income) because he was terrified of losing anything >eventually he got a really good job working at a computer assembly line from nepotism from joining a bunch of Mormons >25$ an hour, gives out free classes at this local community college, full health & dental care, very lenient management >he fucking blew it because he kept oversleeping (I was at school and my mother couldn't wake him for work because she was working) >refuses to accept it was his own fault for fucking up so hard >a dear childhood friend dies from a car accident after being hit by a truck when walking home from work >he insulted my dead friend, saying he probably was involved in gang crime or something even though he was the nerdiest kid I knew and known him for years >mom gets tired of shit, kicks him out of the house >he doesn't even get to see his kid nor his own kids before he and my mom started dating >constantly tries to get back with my mom but eventually gave up >eventually visited me a year later, saw that I obviously didn't want to see him and had this incredibly depressed look in his face >his own biological son doesn't even remember him anymore
>>274985357 I knew they didn't take out a loan, because my family is actually very well off. And I originally bought the car as a second, weekend car for me (since it's an 80's sports car), but then I fell in love with it and want to drive it all the time, so I feel it's unnecessary to have a second car that isn't as fun.
And regardless, after you're 18 your parents have no legal obligation to you. Perhaps you should put yourself in their position and realize that they're real people too with lives of their own and maybe after 18+ years they would like to have their own space and privacy
>>274981052 Lying implies they knew the truth to begin with. They were wrong, they didn't know they were wrong, so they didn't lie, they're just diluted. But a broken clock is right twice a day, so every so often they hit the nail on the head and have a egotistical circle- jerk over how smart and accurate they are.
>am indecisive, not sure what I want to do after graduating highschool >considering military but family friends advise against it at the time, consider other things >really didn't want to go to college because I figured it would be really stupid since I didn't know what I wanted to do >parents push me to enroll at college nearby, "a business degree is never a waste" they say >one has military background and other didn't even go to college, not sure how they came to that conclusion but whatever I'll roll with it >2 years of college later realize it's stupid horseshit, drop out >parents are understandably worried but understand my reasoning >fast forward a bit, living with them again >riding with my dad on our way to meet the rest of our family at a relatives wedding >were talking, college shit comes up >dad admits he feels like its his fault for me going into it and coming out with debt (came out with 15k, which had freaked me out for a long time) >feel like a shitbag for it
>parents kept me showcasing me as "mature" to the rest of my family >thus, acting smart or mature was the best and easiest way for me to get attention >detail -- acting "mature" means i could never make a fuss about nothing and rarely show any speck of feeling >whenever i'd get my parents to get me stuff (always looked for the cheapest shit possible, as in, used to search around town for used, dated games) >"you shouldn't care about material gifts like that, that's pretty immature" >"we're going through a hard time now, just be mature about it" >nigga why the fuck you repressing a nine year old child's feelings in troubling times >rarely got shit >feel bad because being "mature" as a kid was my whole persona and pretty much my only way to get appreciation, wouldn't ruin the whole shtick >meanwhile my sister who was 15 years older than me threw tantrums all the time >not to mention, we were relatively wealthy but father was quite the cheapskate, he once told me he asked my grandfather for a toy car, but my grandfather opened his empty wallet and looked deep into his eyes almost crying >think he wanted to do the same tactic to me >grow in a rich family, but with none of the good shit that comes with it (except education and pretty much whole infrastructure of raising me of course, thankful for that)
I grew up to hold and ok job and life, thankfully, but way more jaded than i'd like to be
It feels good to talk about this once, it's the first time i told my troubles to someone
>Parents were ultra new-age parents to me >Did all this positive reinforcement bullcrap and enabled me to ridiculous levels, and made sure nothing harms me, and that everything I did was golden and incapable of making mistakes >Brother is born >Realize that the way they raised me turned me into an entitled cunt >Be really hands-off with him to let him make mistakes >He's addicted to drugs and dropped out of high school and some sort of hipster with a media studies degree
>>274965021 Oh man >tell my parents I want a ps2 >didn't know anything about the new consoles >get 360 >wtf.jpg >Thought my parents got me a shit console >go home and start playing >blown away Man I still feel bad that I was disappointed at first hopefully my parents didn't notice
>>274986481 just to make sure did the other one showed heavy signs of depression and generally >i will go meet him/her soon because fuck i felt helpess that i could not fill the void at their heart and they were dead set on dying as fast as possible
I was really lucky with my father, even though we were poor as shit because he got into a car accident and lost his really high-level job at some software company he wasn't disconnected from me like it seems so many Anon's parents were. He treated me like a fucking human being, respected my intelligence, and didn't pull stupid shit. We're both really similar and we're both depressed bastards, but we still have each other.
Fuck my mother, though. She's an alcoholic drug-addict bitch and I'm glad my father won the custody battle.
>>274983759 >working retail >black hood mama comes in looking for a dvd player for her car >pregnant, 2 year old and 3 year olds following her around >she's on the phone the whole time >everytime she stops to look at something or yell at whoever she's talking to the girls wander off >when she goes to move again she just yells at them to come on for a minute straight
this isnt really on topic but shit i typed it in a story thread a while back and never got to share it
>used to know slightly chubby girl >small breasts and perfect skinny face >long dark hair and pale-ish skin >10/10 appearance >start talking to her and hanging out with some of her friends too since theyre usually around with her >get along great >after only a week, one of her friends says the girl loves me >hell yeah >about to take the shot >find out that shes bisexual and she had lesbo sex with this one black chick that full out stalked my best pal for three years >find out shes still having lesbo sex with her and the black chick is still stalking my pal >find out that she was just using me for the black chick so that she could be closer to me which might equal her being closer to my pal >decide to ask her out anyways >she slips questions about my pal ever so often and i feed her bullshit >black chick starts to believe even the most bullshit things i say and spreads lies about my pal since he found out about the stalking thing, got super pissed at her and told her off prior >everyone else knows its bullshit and people finally believe that shes a creepy ass stalker and now a liar >go out with the girl that told me that the other girl liked me another week after the plan was finished >called the black chick a nigger >even banged the 10/10 girl a time or two before finishing up the plan
>dad was a geologist >had to fly in and out to the mine on a weekly basis >takes me there for a holiday one time >all of the guys working there live in these dormitories >each have their own pc >massive lan party setup >playing modded bf1942 (Desert combat) for a straight week with my dad and all of his co-workers

unfortunately I do know how it feels. and it sucks. I never thought I'd leave my ex but the relationship was draining me.
But now I'm with the girl (with a great family) of my dreams. Sometimes going through a tough struggle in one relationship shapes the future of what the next one will have. But in order to reach that sacrifices are made, and good-byes are said (or none at all)
>>274987108 Massive motherfucking playmobil castle set. In terms of vidya: Metroid II and a couple other simple games on my Sisters old Gameboy Pocket. Still have that gameboy, love showing people the contrast wheel
>>274986363 Your family are terrible fucking people and you should tell them to fuck off if you can. Do your own thing, become more successful than them, and have kids, raise them with fun and joy in their lives.
>dad was paralyzed when I was 5 >mother has horrible hips >both of them are completely out of work by the time I'm 13 >have to get a job to try and support them >my dad begins to resent me because he, over the years, has become financially dependent on me >21 now >go out and drink with friends, moved out at 20 but still gave them money to help them every month >get a text from my dad when I get home saying "can't even spend time with your family on your birthday, i don't have a son" >cut them off completely >get another text a month later >"so thats what sort of son you are" >send back a voice mail yelling at him saying I thought he didn't have a son, I'm sick of supporting the family, etc >last text I got from my dad was "you stole my role as a man, you robbed me of my only use now you treat me like this." >ends up killing himself
>backstory >Grandparents only have two kids, my mom and my aunt >Mom is older sibling, but big family disappointment >Aunt isn't much more successful but was less of a cunt growing up >Mom has me >Aunt has cousin 2 years later
>be me growing up >Stigma of the family because of who my parents are >First born child of my generation in the family >Get fucking massive expectations put on me >Meet them and then some >Get treated like shit anyway because I had the audacity to be born >Cousin treated like the fucking messiah >has a birthday in the middle of the summer >Gets anything and everything he wants, grandparents and parents spend hundreds on gifts, food, and parties >My birthday at the start of winter >Get told I can only celebrate christmas or my birthday because they don't have enough money to buy everyone presents for everyone >awkward growing up because I didn't celebrate my birthday >Have little friends until high school because nobody got invited to the birthday parties I never had >Cousin is super popular because he has huge bashes >Now 22 and the first time I ever celebrated my birthday for real was last year when I went out for drinks with uni friends
>>274988746 Sorry but your dad sounds like a total cunt and deserved to die
>you help him with everything you have got >still help them after you move out >your dad talks shit >you hate it and do the right thing and cut them out >still talks shit on you >kills himself cause he failed as a father and couldnt do the one basic thing and provide for his family
fuck him anon, be glad hes gone cause he was a piece of shit pulling you down.
>i swear art is one of the biggest wastes of time anyone can do. Nobody likes fucking paintings and it will get you nowhere in life
Dont think of deviantart, think rich people in galleries looking at overpriced shit and trying to out-erudite eachother by pretending they know shit. Its actually a really good job if you manage to get popular in the circlejerk scene.
The lulzy shit is that I wasted literally hours if not more of my life forced to draw shit ending up only using CAD tools for everything.
>>274983609 Different anon, but I've done fun interesting things, and I feel like attention whoring out of boredom for a sec since you seem interested. >flew a plane a couple years ago while step dad was trying to get his pilots licence, it was essentially "let's see how you handle flying a plane". Apparently I'm fucking great. It's easier than driving a car, since there's nothing to hit within a thousand feet. Take off is pretty simple, landing is a clusterfuck. >got lost in Vegas on the family trip since they closed the tram. The New York New York had a path through the Luxor into the Mandalay Bay, but the only sign was a foot long, dimly lit, and 15 feet off the ground, an old Englishman pointed it out after half an hour of wandering He was a pretty cool guy, even though I only met him for 12 seconds. >before that we were in Utah 2 hours away, we went canyoneering. On a 60 foot drop I slipped off the wall about 40 feet off the ground and almost fell out onto my head. Could've been killed/crippled. Everything went fine, fun as fuck. Southern Utah is great. >when I was a lot younger, me and my dad played vidya together and/or took turns on single player ones >got me into KOTOR 1/2, Republic commando, Jedi outcast/academy, Tribes for a while, City of Heroes/Villains, and SW battlefront 1/2 >we've grown apart and he's become a politically left casual who doesn't take care of his car and hasn't reached out to me since June. >passive aggressively texts 14 year old brother a month ago and a few times before, didn't follow up seriouslyat all >step dad went full retard, started acting like that clingy GF to my mom, faked shooting himself over the phone while 100 miles away, shot a BB gun at her window (separate homes thank god) >Dad probably continuing in veg financial irresponsibility and being a liberal casual who's awful at maintaining a non-superficial friendship, likely because his parents did too >I've also had ADHD the whole time >mfw the wild ride that is my life
>>274989351 Kids not mine, we've been together 6 months. I know the baby daddy and he dipped the moment she told him she was pregnant. I've been friends with her for 5 years now. The relationship just kind of happened.
