Yep, happy new year anon. Russian people are pretty unreasonable. I had two glasses of champagne even though i'm not 21 yet. In your own house it's whatever, but this was a public place in a venue with like 200 people. Something about that is surreal. I'm back in my hotel room now becuase I wasn't in the mood for watching the second half of paranormal activity with a couple of wiggers. I don't mean to be rude or anything, but they're just very boring people with poor music taste. Good night.

>I never understood the appeal to celebrating the beginning of a new year, it's the most depressing "holiday" in existence.
It's the symbol representing the passing of time, the "ritual", what drives to celebrate these kind of things as holidays. It's like birthdays; they're there only to remind you that time passes and you can't do anything to stop it.

While I understand it, I don't see why everybody frets their shit so much about it. I mean, it's no different than a weekend. Monday always comes right after it.

Why won't you work in a field you like instead?

There is a lot of alternatives when it comes to work, especially if having not-so-high-but-enough-to-live-with salary doesn't matter to you much. You can try yourself as a freelancer, you can go to the courses for a thing you're interested in (with the money you've saved from this work you do now. there are a lot of courses that give you work in the field once you've finished), you can find work where you do nothing, you can find a work where you have to travel a lot if you're into that kind of thing (you can became a stuart and fly to the different countries for example) etc.

Maybe you're not happy with the lifestyle this work forces you to have.

I can’t stand any more how much my social anxiety keeps blocking me away from what I want to do. I feel like each day I’m going crazier from the weariness and frustration it causes me. And I feel like my life is getting closer and closer to a situation where it is essential for my survival to be able to overcome this, at least enough to not end up starving on the streets.

So, this next week, I’m going to force myself to join at least one discord group I know about for people with anxiety. From there I’ll try to join some non-directed for my problem and instead to my interests. Yeah, I know how ridiculous it is that I can’t even join online groups without stressing out. This is how much social anxiety hinders me.

Through the suggestion of a friend, I’m also going to create an account on tinder. I know how stupid this is, but it might offer in some part what I need to be challenged with. Exposition, been identified, sharing personal information, being approached by strangers, having people manifest interest in talking to me. Where I live this app it’s still not a complete cancer container. And having to deal with the assholes proliferating there will, I expect, allow me to develop other social skills that are also needed.

Have any suggestion to my plan? Or want to tell how stupid it is and that I’m doomed to fail? Feel free to either, I don’t care. I can’t stand how things are anymore. Even if this experience kicks me to the ground, at least something happened, at least I’ll be out of this cycle, even if just for a while.

Have any of you ever done something similar? What have you tried to fight against social anxiety?

I believe in you, anon.
Go ahead but don't push yourself too hard.

Do you have any hobbies (like drawing, programming, making music)? If yes, I'd recommend you joining discord servers with the people doing things you do or like. Because if you join server just with social outcasts, it may be difficult to find a topic to talk about so it will be hard for you to start a conversation sometimes. BUT if you join server with people sharing your interests in case you don't know what to talk about you always can say something on the topic of this particular interest and you'll always be sure that everyone will be interested in this as much as you do.

And also if you feel uncomfortable in some particular group — it's always okay to leave. You can't like everyone in this world and that's pretty normal.

I watched Roma yesterday because I wanted to expand my perspective and try new things. I wanted to go far out of my comfort zone. It sucked. A pretentious bore. I understood what is was trying to go for, I understood the symbolism and what the obscure details meant. I still hated it. Why? I didn't connect with the characters. They were all unlikable or boring, blank skates. Whatever empathy I felt for the mc, Cleo, is the same amount I would have for a stanger. I don't get to know anybody. None of the characters truly develop either. The way they act at the beginning and what you can imagine them doing, remains entirely the same at the end. The mother does become more self-assured after she has to become a career woman, but this might only be visible because of the actress. It wasn't coveyed particularly well by the writing and plot. Cleo just felt like an alien to me. She was quiet, dumb and naive. At the end, she was a bit less naive. This again, was not coveyed through much action. She has one line of dialogue that indicates this. The revolution backdrop of the movie feels totally separate from the main plot and I didn't have the background knowledge to understand why it was happening. The film gives no insight into this.

The film seemed to me like a propaganda piece made to give a human face to Mexicans and get me to sympathize with them more. I'm not deliriously cynical enough to completely believe this was for political reasons, but I wouldn't be suprised. It failed. It has two hours to accomplish the bare requirement for a compelling story and it failed. I didn't even learn anything new. It was like a late night soap operaish flick with a few extra embellishments like class struggle. Nothing new or suprising. It seems like a movie made by Mexicans for Mexicans. How it got so much praise is a mystery to me.

For a moment I thought it was actually about rome and didn't understand why anything had to do with mexicans.

Anyway, checking wikipedia
>On review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes, Roma holds an approval rating of 98% based on 191 reviews, with an average rating of 9.3/10. The website's critical consensus reads, "Roma finds writer-director Alfonso Cuarón in complete, enthralling command of his visual craft – and telling the most powerfully personal story of his career." On Metacritic the film has a weighted average score of 96 out of 100, based on 47 critics, indicating "universal acclaim".
>At the Toronto International Film Festival, the film was named second runner-up for the People's Choice Award. The film also won the Golden Lion at the Venice International Film Festival.

If what you say is true, then I'm really disappointed people claim it to be such a masterwork if there isn't even any character development or story to drive your interest in the film. Maybe I should watch it to judge it better, but it doesn't seem that appealing to me.

If you've got two hours to spare, please do. As I was walking out of the theatre, it seemed like everybody had a negative opinion on it. Admittedly, most of the people in that small theatre were old and white. They complained about it being boring or too depressing. I love depressing stuff that's well executed, so I knew that wasn't the issue. The movie certainly has, "layers", here and there, especially with the Fernand/Fermind character, but a smattering of themes and symbolism does not a good movie make. Ultimately nothing significant changes, certainly not anything the audience is made to care about. Bit of easy, "emotional torture porn", here and there to try to wring out pity for a character we barely know.

Also, if I had to compliment the movie on anything, it would be the cinematography. Lots of well done long takes and some good blocking. The Black and White effect was totally unnecessary and added nothing. The contrast between the silly tv shows and dloo,y, "reality", of the movie was a nice touch, but it just made me want to watch those shows instead. It doesn't actually make any kind of relevant statement to the rest of the film.

this isn't something new critics do. critics have often praise films and music if it's culturally or politically relevant regardless of the quality of it. they also then get buttmad that the rest of the viewers/audience didn't like it and write embarrassing articles about how they don't like the viewer for having an opinion contrary to the critical view. critics/rotten tomatoes are usually jokes.

It's halloween season again.
When I was a kid I used to scour around my school for a pumpkin a couple days before the 31st. Then i'd come up with some kind of plan and steal it without anybody noticing. After i'd carve a pattern in it at home and stick a candle inside. Didn't even put it outside. I just kept it in my kitchen and checked on it all the way through the night until it flickered out finally. Now a days I just buy one. What kind of tradtions do you have?

Also, this year i'm looking for a physiological horror movie to watch instead. I'm hopng people here can suggest something that's not entry level like The Shining.

I finished it. Akira might be the best action film ever made. I'd say its sort of like The Matrix, in that its very high-concept, except its better in every way. It's action and visuals are more interesting and impressive, and it doesn't water-down its concepts to be more accessible. Akira gets praise more for its merit, while the Matrix is praised because it's different and dares to make the audience think in an environment of total schlock. The Matrix is also somewhat(very) unoriginal and derivative. Even from a character standpoint, Akira is superior. Despite having a large cast and having little time spent just talking, even supporting characters are more fleshed out and compelling than Neo or Trinity or Morpheus(Cipher's not bad actually). The few talking scenes were poignant and moved the plot along in some way, while the Matrix indulged in longish, repetitive speeches that only served as exposition dumps or to indulge itself despite being in a visual media and having other options for communicating information. Akira came out more than ten years before too. The Matrix being far better remembered in the public conscious is a poor sign to me.

I liked the Matrix when I first saw it and that was only last year, so nostalgia didn't play any part in that enjoyment, but it didn't even come close to blowing me away enough to make me write word vomit like this.

I'd also say Akira says a lot more about people, the way they perceive each other, and their relationship with authority and the government than the Matrix, which just alludes to the idea that what authorities tell people could be deceptive, and most people just extrapolate that the movie implied the government lies about so and so or just everything for nefarious purposes. The Matrix's 'best' theme of what reality actually means and whether it matters or not is hardly explored in a meaningful way(impacts characters and story). Again, most of the laundry list is only briefly touched on in some characters conversation. That's why Cipher and Anent Smith are the best characters and could potentially make for more compelling protagonists than what we got with the whole chosen one crap.

In the past I have been diagnosed with general anxiety disorder and more specifically social anxiety disorder.
It was so bad I couldn't even look people in the eye and I would start shaking whenever I feel like I am looked at, I would run out of classrooms at university because of anxiety attacks.
I can't remember what I was on back at the time.

I have now started a new course ( which basically guranatees a job ) and it's back. It's more under control because I am more mature and have learned to breathe, try to calm myself and distract myself but it still doesn't let me function as a human being. ( + )

I am too poor to afford therapy but my cousin works as a nurse. I have access to: paroxetine, citalopram, sertraline, venlafaxine, regabalin, tradozone and alprazolam.

( + ) I'm currently anticipating social situations and taking 0.50 of xanax ahead with like half or 3 quarters of an hour but this will not last me long because I'm developing resilience to the drug ( I used to take 0.25 ).

I exercise using the bodyweight fitness app whenever I can. I do not drink coffee, alcohol or energy drinks. I used to drink tea but at some point I realised black tea unsettles me and I kind of stopped.

My concerns are anhedonia and gaining weight because this happened last time.
I plan on informing myself for a few weeks first and I am seeking help.
If you can and want please share this post to communities which you think might me knowledgeable.

Hopefully the right place to put this, but looking for a couple people to help play-test an upcoming game.

Best way I can describe it as a cross between LSD and Dreaming Mary. It all seems very randomy but does have an overarching horror element exposed late-game that ties it together. Very heavy exploration based with levels that change themselves as you progress.

Does require a decent gaming rig, and fully supports local CO-OP. The game is finished besides any last minute bug-fixes or additional hints as needed.
