      My very bigoted "christian" mother has decided that my recent string of health issues, Concussion, sleep apnea (Which I haven't been able to sleep for years now), high anxiety (Probably from my 18 credits of college, 20 hours of work a week, and no money or sleep) and other issues like this fuckign recurring cold are all because the holy spirit is trying to tell me to leave my girlfriend because she's bi. Found out all this information second hand because my mom doesn't have a spine. 

      So if ya'll wanna just do me the favour of hitting me with a truck so i don't have to put up with this shit anymore, please do.

      Rest stop in Tennessee
      Found where the ignorant fucks of the world meet
      For donuts and coffee
      Spewing rhetoric, I thought was reserved for
      Westboro Baptists and lunatics like that
      So, you can hide behind the bible
      We still know you're fucked
      Inbreeding can claim this one
      Chalk it up
      These small town minds stay small
      The world evolves so stay in your shithole
      We're moving on
      Someone should burn this place to the ground
      I'll see, you motherfuckers in hell

      Fantastic album from my all time favourite band. I've been really into it recently. If you're into pop punk definitely give it a shot. 


      I don't really have much to say about it without writing 1500 words on it, and i don't have time for that right now because my life is a disaster, so. What I will say is I vibe with pretty much every line on the album so. 


      Have a killer week, peeps. 

    • I'm falling apart.

      1 month ago

      Benchmark

      Since the concussion I have just been off. I'm more self aware of how I'm feeling and I'm starting to notice some things. For one, I've been trying to figure out why I've been sleeping so poorly for the last couple years and I'm pretty sure I have sleep apnea, so I have an appointment soon about that. Secondly, through talking to some people and just my friends comments, It's very possible I have ADD. I also have an appointment for that, soon too. That's all draining me pretty bad. I don't have much energy for things and I just can't sit down and do what work I have when I have the time. I'm struggling to do basic multi tasking. I was hanging out with my lady the other day and she asked me to just grab a glass for her that was next to me while I was up. So I got up, them my phone went off, so i pulled that out while I was headed over and then i just stood still looking at it while i was right next to the glass. Things like that will happen all the time. People will ask me to do something simple and I'll just space. I'll lose track of things in conversations, people will be talking to be and I'm just lost and nothing they say is sticking. I hear "we've talked about this" more than almost anything else. That's all very scary to me. I don't like where I am health wise right now. 


      The worst part is I still really can't control my emotions well. It's hard not to cry during the day, and that's never a problem I've had before. It's stupid to me how easily it comes on, too. Even writing about this and the tough time I'm having makes me want to just lay down, stick my face under my hoodie, and just give up for a few hours. It's fucking with me on a level I didn't know I had. The lack of sleep sure as shit isn't helping, either. I can't read any social situation at all. I'm constantly making missteps in conversation, or doing XYZ that is obvious and I should not be doing and it's annoying the living fuck out of people around me. They're really good sports about it cuz they know I'm not trying to, but that doesn't make it easier for either of us to deal with. I feel like I'm out of control. Like I'm a bystander to my day. I can't make myself do work, my apartment is falling apart, my school isn't near where I'd like it to be, and all of that stresses me out and then I get really really bad stress headaches. Anxiety is at an all time high and productivity is nearing all time lows. 


      I don't know what to do while I sit around waiting for doctors to get to me. I feel pretty much helpless. Little things are turning into struggles and the struggles are turning close to impossible. I'm really fucked up right now. I've never felt like this before. 


      It's weird because physically I'm an anxious mess who can't sleep and I'm beyond worried I won't graduate because I'll fail a class this semester, but deep down there I'm still happy. I just can't focus on that. Or anything really. I carved out a block of time to work on a paper today, and I haven't started and it's been almost two hours. I keep almost getting there, and then literally anything else happens, and I'm trying so hard to focus, but man oh god. 

      It's also getting hard to drive. I'm spacing out a lot on the road and then that makes me anxious because I'm worried I'll wreck, and then I get a stress headache, and then i really can't drive well. I'm not sad anymore, I'm just tired most days, and I'm trying to stay positive.

      [Verse 1]
      I had that dream again 
      Like a punch in the mouth 
      And I just can’t get out of the cycle I’m in

      It’s almost 4am
      And I’m pulling up floorboards
      I’m swinging my pick
      Digging to sanity 


      [Pre Chorus]
      So if you find me on the other side
      Please stop and say hello / goodbye 
      I’m headed somewhere fast 
      I just hope it’s somewhere good 


      [Chorus 1]
      Ohhh, Ohh, Ohhhhh,
      I just want to be home
      Next to mountains and water
      Far away from this bullshit 


      Ohhh, Ohh, Ohhhhh,
      I’m still catching my breath 
      Take one swing at a time
      Choke on dust as it flies 


      If I don’t make it 
      There’s some cardboard in the corner 

      Shove me in it
      Ship my corpse to California 


      [Verse 2]
      I’m starting to question
      How much it really matters 
      To get a plaque up on the wall
      That says “You did it!”


      We’re all fucked anyways
      Cuz they’ve put bombers on standby 
      We’re all just a bad tweet
      From oblivion 


      [Pre Chorus]
      So if you find me on the other side
      Please stop and say hello / goodbye 
      We’re headed somewhere fast 
      I just hope it’s somewhere good 


      [Chorus]
      Ohhh, Ohh, Ohhhhh,
      I just want to be home
      Next to mountains and water
      Far away from this bullshit 


      Ohhh, Ohh, Ohhhhh,
      I’m still catching my breath 
      Take one swing at a time
      Choke on dust as it flies 


      If I don’t make it 
      There’s some cardboard in the corner 

      Put me in it
      And ship my corpse back home- 


      [Bridge]
      I was never big on walking away
      But it gets easier every day
      To just lie down and take it 


      But I’ve gotta see my sister
      Lord knows how much I miss her 
      and her brothers 
      And our fluffy little pal 


      So fuck the world and all it’s shit
      I don’t need this apocalypse 
      I’ll flip those fuckers off 
      Through radiation clouds 


      [Chorus]
      Ohh, Ohhhhh,
      I just want to be home
      Next to mountains and water
      Far away from this bullshit 


      Ohhh, Ohh, Ohhhhh,
      I’m still catching my breath 
      Take one swing at a time
      Choke on fumes as we die 


      If I don’t make it 
      There’s some cardboard in the corner 

      Put me in it
      And ship my corpse to California


      If I don’t make it 
      There’s a box that’s in the corner 


      It’s pre-addressed
      Please ship my corpse to California

    • The End of an Era

      I am not now and will no longer be a sponsor of the RT site. After watching this website become secondary to every other platform on the internet without a shred of change, and having my favorite sponsor features open to the public, there is no longer a need, nor a want, for me to support this company with direct financial contribution. This is weird for me to say, having been a sponsor for all but about 8 months of my 5 years here, whether on my dollar, or a generous gift from someone else. 

      It's sad to see something with such potential slowly slip away to something i no longer care for on near the same level. This is me officially giving up on RT turning this site around. 

    • I don't even have a title this is so disjointed

      Benchmark

      It’s another night in the dark. Melodic music playing in the background, a cup of coffee somewhere to my right. It doesn’t really matter as long as it’s in arm’s reach, although usually it lives at the outer limits of my capabilities. It’s times like these where I’m thankful I splurged for the backlight keyboard. In the small thinking moments when fingers are not flying across my keyboard with the intensity of a couple dozen high grade flashlights, the keyboard will dim down and remind me of another era. Many nights I was pinned into my little shelter, writing. Songs, stories, poetry not so much at the time, but opinion pieces were the majority of my focus. There was a lot I had to say. These days it’s very different but still the same. A lot rattles around inside. I just don’t know what time or what outlet it needs from me. 


      The advance of technology hasn’t gone quite how I had wanted it to. Innovation has stayed on a grand scale and advanced too slowly while the details fall through the gaps. I am incapable of figuring out what exactly needs to happen within Mac OS X to get my media buttons to function properly with Spotify, but I can tell you over half the time Play/Pause doesn’t do shit. If the volume buttons didn’t work I would riot. Core functionality has fallen by the wayside in favor of flash and flair. There still hasn’t been a merger of ideas between Windows and OS X, although I’ve heard rumors “Windows” as a brand is dead, and a new face will head the Microsoft consumer software outlet. It better have a better name than “Edge.” What a flop. 


      I suppose that could be said of any non-chrome browser since its release. I supposed I could say that about a lot of things in my life, technology or not. It’s the little things in life that are important. Quality of life. The things that I could ramble on about for hours with my best friend over the phone. Things I could make a detailed post about. Small things like being able to hard press on a word in OS X to get it’s dictionary definition in a small convenient pop up window. It’s been YEARS and I still couldn’t tell you why the Windows search function is such total garbage. Waiting for your results is basically akin to being in line at the DMV. I just want to know where I put my files. That’s it. Spotlight does it all so well and quick. It’s not something you can patent, so fucking steal it. God damn. 


      I shouldn’t have to be giving tech giants notes, but here I am. I feel like the best ideas are all left on the table. The small tweaks, the little nuances. I couldn’t tell you any of them until I switch platforms at the end of the day longing for little features the opposite system offers. Taste does change over time, and so does refinement. Ask me 5 years ago about dual centered joysticks on controllers and I’d tell you to go fuck yourself. Sure enough, refine the nubs a little and the DualShock 4 is still the best controller I’ve ever used. The thumbtack layout of the Xbox just feels so foreign now. It’s weird to me. Something I lobbied for so long I quickly threw by the wayside. That’s just the way it goes sometimes. 


      I’m still a sucker for new and creative applications. I recently picked up a program of which I am currently writing in called iAWriter. It’s a very simplistic text editor, but it lets you focus better on your work, has a night mode (As a quick aside, I will literally kill for night mode functionality in every and all programs. Please just make it happen. Dark themes are the best themes) and a very nifty feature that colors different words on the screens based on what kind of word they are. Adjectives, Nouns, Adverbs, Verbs, conjunctions, they are all highlighted at a glance. I’ll include a little example piece using a lyric from one of my favorite songs. 


      cT7sfAQ.png


      The lyrics read a lot differently than they sing. I guess that’s what’s so interesting about music. It’s so dynamic in several different ways. There’s a lot I have to say about that, but that’s a much longer and different topic for another day. What I will say is I had the pleasure of seeing The Wonder Years live last Thursday night. My girlfriend bought me tickets, and their vinyl from the show. We got one of the last limited prints of it they had available. It was an unforgettable show. I doubt much will ever top that memory in terms of concert experience. It was an immeasurably sweet gesture. 


      For a while I’ve been theorizing getting a collection of records together to put on my wall. I want it full of albums that I am a fan of 100% of the songs on. A wall full of music carefully organized and displayed to show visitors “Hey, this is some dope ass music I am adamantly behind.” I’m proud to say I own the first record towards my goal. Only twenty something more to go. 

      Dinner is soon. I’m making a nice stir fry. Let me tell you, nothing quite like checking all your nutritional boxes off in one fell swoop. And it’s delicious. I haven’t been cooking as much as I’d like to, but I’m trying to change that. My sanity has been slowly slipping recently due to a lot of factors, but my apartment is a mess and I don’t know when I’ll really have time to clean it. I’m frantically busy these days with little time I am even home.I might have a new job offer for some Sunday Audio work at a church and while that’s a tremendous blessing both in money and experience, that’s just less time I have to relax. I’m a little worried about myself to be honest. 


      My phone just broke. The MINI USB port on the bottom is dysfunctional and I’m lucky if it charges at all. Hope it holds together till Thursday when my new phone gets in. Fuck Motorola. I’m done with them. I’m not a big believer in large budget phones ($600+) but boy the cheaper stuff is biting me in the ass. (Or maybe literally it’s just Motorola. We’ll find out.) Either way, I’m excited for a new phone, and mad I have to buy it. Now that we’ve hit the Benchmark classic 1,200+ word count I’ll leave you be. Hope you’re all well. 


      If you get a chance let people in your life know you love them.

      What Disney character would you most like to have dinner and a conversation with?

      Answered: Sep 25, 2017

      Kind of a cop out, but the Fox version of Robin hood. I think that'd be a fun historical conversation. Otherwise, I'm not entirely sure. Most of my favourite disney movies lack characters that aren't just fun people.

        Hey! I really appreciate that, it means a lot to me. I'm not doing super well. Very bad stress related headaches right now. Trying to avoid loud things, which is hard when you're an audio major, so. I've been super self-aware of my health since my concussion so I'm noticing a lot of things wrong recently. I was about to wrote a post about it but i got lost in time for a bit. 
        I'm pretty sure I have ADD, so I have an appointment in the works for that. I am having a very hard time doing anything these days, and my friends are all commenting on my lack of multi tasking ability. 

        I'm also 98% sure I have sleep apnea, which again, I'm waiting for a appointment for. I sleep like absolute garbage and it's just too hard to start my days tired. It was all kind of manageable before the concussion. I could never really sit down and read, my mind is too busy for that, but now I can barely sit down and focus on much, and I'm so tired all the time. Currently in a panera about to chow down on some french onion soup before i write a paper. 

        So. I'm kind sliding. Just waiting to see some M.D.s and holding myself together. How are things in your neck of the woods?

        This sounds sadly familiar, although not quite to the same degree.


        My memory went to goo for a while. Like, months. It's only now starting to show signs of its former glory.... which was not that "glorious" to begin with. It IS definitely an issue with concussions. But, it should level off and come back. Same for the focus. Mine ebbs and flows. But, it seemed like for a while it was virtually non-existent. That will come back as your brain heals. Slowly.


        And really, that's my biggest issue with all of this - the lack of speed in healing. Like you, my mind was on Warp 8, all the time. I'm lucky to get it up to 6, these days. One thing I've noticed that has been helping are puzzles. Small ones. And, Lego. I have a few small sets around (joke gifts from my brother, over the years) and trying to piece stuff together from scratch has been helpful.


        Also, working on music has been very therapeutic. If you have that inclination, get at it.


        As for the sleep apnea? Definitely get that appointment. Had to bite that bullet a couple of years ago (I was nodding off at stop lights... scary!). It's not the fix-all. But, it should fix-most, if you know what I mean.


        Ease yourself into more physical activity. The hardest part of this is self-motivation. It's been my Achilles but, I'm getting better at it.


        Other than that? Time. And patience.... on everyone's part.

        Second one is true, not whiny.
        Networks know that the american populous doesn't have the attention span for a two hour show, let alone waiting 7 years between seasons. Try casting that, you're gonna have nightmares.

        My beck comment was mocking people after the grammies. All I kept hearing was 'Who the fuck is Beck?'

        My Podcast comment was whiny, I'll grant you that, and in retrospect I feel like an asshole for saying it, but to be fair at the time I didn't know it was only put out because of the whole Monty situation.

        But hey thanks for getting back to me with examples.

        Don't mistake my curiosity for rudeness, I am genuinely interested in what you're saying however my articulation is often misconstrued, and rightfully so.

        What you're referencing, it's more of a constantly reoccurring negativity?
        Would you not classify that as being a human?
        General annoyances here and there, things like that?
        I'm curious as to whether the element you're referring to is unique to myself or present in most people's journals.

        Is there something specific you can reference?
        I can't seem to pinpoint what you mean.

        I suppose it's more so reoccurring negativity I'm picking up on. (Obviously not every post.) I appreciate the effort you put into your posts haha. And even if there is some negativity there are also good bits in it that I like reading about. You post interesting things, basically. Negative or positive, they keep me interested.

        I'm inclined to agree, but at the same time I have no idea what you're referring to.
        In my past weeks worth of journals only one of them is a complaint.
        However, I can see how my material could perceived to be complaints, and if so my question is then do you a actually like my content if you don't like the complaining?
        I would think the two are almost the same thing.

        I feel like it's close to two switches, but I have no idea what would get knocked off.

        Well, most importantly, it's original. Secondly, it's kind of an inside joke/tribute to one of my friends. Finally, ever heard the phrase "Benchmark moment"? It's something that's noteworthy or special. Hope that answers your question.

  • Questions answered by Benchmark

    Kind of a cop out, but the Fox version of Robin hood. I think that'd be a fun historical conversation. Otherwise, I'm not entirely sure. Most of my favourite disney movies lack characters that aren't just fun people. 

    There's not much I would want to put on a pizza that I don't already. Perhaps the best Pizza is just Hawaiian with bacon and a shit-ton of pineapple. Unless I want to game the question and ask for diamonds on my pizza, that's what I'd get. 

    NY and Chicago style are shit. I don't want some thin bullshit crust and I don't want to eat my pizza with a fork because you decided to literally make a pizza 'pie.' I like a nice medium crust, it's got some flop on the front but support towards the back, and I like a good bit of crust on the back end, chewy and preferably cheese filled. 

    We have a yellow lab/retriever  puppy on the way. I won't get to see her much before I leave which is honestly heartbreaking because I've wanted a dog my entire life, but I got to pick the breed and the name, and she's adorable. I'm as excited as I am sad about it. 

    Gearing up for finals, so I'm in work mode. Favourite color is Magenta you really just can't beat it. Favourite movie is a 90 minute sketch-movie by the WKUK called 'Civil war on drugs.' Basically a low budget film that's just pure comedy to me and means basically nothing to the rest of the world. I love it. 

    Not a huge fan. Feels too forced to me. Part of why I love the podcasts is that they're not scripted so it all just rolls. I kind of like that they're not educative and don't try to be. If I wanted to know the answer I'd look it up later, google is magic. 

    1. Get a god damn good lawyer.
    2. Buy my dad a house.
    3. Invest.

    Steak or hamburgers?

    | Asked by: TinaBobina 1 year ago

    Ooo, that's a toughie. Steak is classier but I think if I had a horrid day I'd sooner want a quality burger than a quality steak. There's just something comforting about biting into a juicy burger. And now I'm hungry.

    I had been following RT since the drunk tanks days, ( I was subbed when I saw the first ever AH video be uploaded. ) I then waited until i was 16 to join the site (on my birthday actually) BECAUSE I'M A FUCKING ADULT.

    Oh, yeah, I'm looking at all you other shits I see on here before 16. The TOS says 16. Get on my level scrubz.

    Really just always wanted to join, but I'm not one of those cunts who was impatient.

    What is your real name?

    | Asked by: TinaBobina 1 year ago

    Nice try, stalker.

    Laughing, 200%. Honestly I think if you died having sex, most of the time it's murder. That's some gone girl shit right there.
