Great.
My Rainbow Warrior one is 2,000 words and I still don't even have a decent defined topic yet. This isn't good.

I suggest you look into a behavioural health center in your city. The payment options can be quite reasonable, if you want to take care of it for yourself. I don't have insurance, and I only have to pay $20 per appointment, which is not bad at all.
I have to involve my mom for a couple reasons: I'm on her insurance, I don't have a job yet so I couldn't pay for appointments and I can't drive.

Nice to see that parts of America aren't in the fucking stone age.

We used fake names when meeting girls on the boardwalks both nights. My one buddy was Finch from American Pie and the rest of us stole names from out school's baseball coaches. After we gave out our numbers, we changed all our voicemails to the fake names for the rest of the weekend.
Sounds fucking awesome. You made those two days count.

Surprised to hear that 30 year-old Ocean City-dwellers suck so badly at volleyball. They're not that old.

Ah. That's different then.


Honestly, getting a job would really give you some social experience.

We only played volleyball in Rehoboth. But they weren't bad, we're just fucking awesome.

I play server. I have a great serve. I don't do much else, though. I'm not tall enough to play front line and I may have broken my thumb on Saturday, so my sets weren't working too well either.

I've played volleyball a couple of times. Serving was probably the easiest thing for me too...for similar reasons.

How the fuck did you break you thumb? That's no good.

Excuse me while I back away slowly, avoiding eye contact ...

I'm much more socially confident online. Online there's no pressure of speech. I can take my time to stop and think and work out what I'm going to say. In real life, in real time, I'm more likely to say something stupid and embarrass myself, or not be able to think up anything to say at all.
I find it very difficult to become comfortable with people, and I have to get to know people quite well before I'm able to hold a normal conversation with them without becoming flustered and nervous.
It takes experience to become fully aware of the true double nature of the word 'petrified', it can refer to wood that has turned to stone, or to fear. I've found that when I'm thrust into social situations with strangers, I tend to shut down, sitting quietly, not speaking, not making eye contact. As though I've turned to stone.
So there's social anxiety, which lends into depression when I begin hating myself for not being able to be interact 'normally', and there's also general self-loathing, when I over-worry about how people perceive me, and find it impossible to forgive myself for the smallest mistakes. I sometimes find myself inwardly scolding myself and hating myself for tiny embarrassments which happened years prior and that surely no one else remembers. The hard part is in learning how to let that stuff go.

You do realize that Fresh Kills means the landfill - said to be seen from space!

I dominate the overhand serve. Pwnage to the max, broski.

Not sure if it's broken. Playing volleyball, actually. Early on in the day. It didn't affect my serve since I serve with a fist, but it's swollen up pretty good. Made sets difficult.

A friend of mine broke her thumb while trying to grab the remote control as it fell from the side of the couch. She was quite embarrassed to tell the doctor that.

I do that too. Every little mistake haunts me. So you can imagine what the big ones do.
