Why would I do anything special? I already went to Howlerween. One party is enough for me.

>someone just banged on my door demanding treats

I have no treats for the child, so now I must suffer the trick

I spent my Halloween laying around and then re-going to a doctor because life is pain (or maybe it was my head that was pain...)

But at least I got to Howlerween!

Are any of you burnt out?

I can't seem to motivate myself to do any of my schoolwork until the absolute deadline, without doing the readings/homework. It's not interesting at all and has no relevance to any career that I may have or anything even tertiarily related to any of my skills. To be honest, I can hardly take it. I'd rather do literally anything. If I was a construction worker, I'd at least get some exercise, see the product of my labor, and see a livable paycheck at the end of the week. I could even work overtime and start saving.

Like many, when I my work isn't even painful enough to feel like a challenge or has nothing to be solved or nothing to be proud of (even the grades are irrelevant at this point), I just can never seem to motivate myself to do any of it until the last minute. Like... you remember in fight club, how the guy says that work is basically so monotonous, feminized, and disconnected from reality that it just sucks his soul right out? That's how school feels. I love the adrenaline of a long-distance (by my standards) jog, hell I'd even pay to be able to get dragged out to sea again, just for the sake of skin-in-the-game and a challenge. This dread (in the literal sense) just makes me wanna disappear. I watch youtube videos, browse websites, and do all this inane shit I don't care about, just to hide for seconds, hours, and days away from my Danaid-labor. Yeah, it's easy to imagine Sisyphus happy, but what about the Danaids? At least Sisyphus reaches the top.

I don't even see my irl friends very often anymore. One I considered my best friend and I haven't seen that person--not really--in ages. I wanna stop. I'd take $10/hour paving the sidewalks ffs. I really have no idea how I'm gonna finish my final projects. Oh people say "Don't worry, anon, you'll get it done! It will all be over soon." But it can't be over soon enough, and I don't know if I can hold out that long.

A little-known fact among college-goers is that your degree doesn't decide your fate. If you hate what you're doing, graduate and do literally something else, follow what matters to you. If the work is drudgery, don't just escape in bursts, break the fuck out. If you're willing to sacrifice pay for it to be less soul-sucking then you can definitely find work that has meaning for you. Follow your heart, let your passions guide you. You can do this in undergrad by taking more non-major classes, leaving your shitty major altogether, or adding another major that your actually enjoy. After college you can go do something you like, whatever that is. If you can stay solvent and happy, then who gives a fuck. You have control over this part of your life, so take it! Start looking into things you actually want to do, pick up neat work on the weekends, take community college classes or what have you to get deeper into something you're passionate about.

I'm one of the lucky ones, I got out of an uninteresting major early and started doing something I love, but it's never too late. I'm dating one of the less lucky ones in that she graduated with a major she hated. Buw she has now struck out in another direction for what actually matters to her. It's not too late and it never is. In college I met so many cool and interesting people who got a degree in something and are now doing things they love that aren't even tangentially related.

One may imagine Sisyphus or the Danaids happy, but the joy of Odysseus requires no imagination. We don't have to be tragic characters, we are not only marble and sculptor but also story and author. A man cannot remake himself without hardship, but you know your work right now does not define you so why would it be remaking yourself? To choose a new direction for a story, you just need to put pen to paper. No pain or hardship required, just careful thought and planning.

Go get em, kouhai.

what are my fellow howlers reading lately? I'm reading Fear and Trembling by Kierkegaard, which is honestly a pretty fun read that has made me more interested in the Old Testament. I'm also slowly trudging through Psychology and Religion. i hope I get through it by the end of the year-- it feels like a burden lately.
Also! How do you keep track of what you read? I've been using goodreads lately, but I want to move to a better solution.

>laughably cheap

I always buy books second hand, so I agree those are dirt cheap, but you also run into issues of mold etc in those.

Dirt cheap new books are not actually that common unless you consider 15-20 laughably cheap.

I am filled with nothing but disdain for Quebs. Just leave already and stop being so damn mad that not everyone is a fluent French speaker, this is just a consequence of a multi-language nation. Just because you speak both doesn't mean everyone should and don't be EVEN ANGRIER when people try with anything less than perfect fluency. I don't know why anyone stops them from seceding, are they even a serious economic force within Canada?

They're superior to the rest of the country but outnumbered and outgunned. Much like the American Southeast, they're basically an occupied territory. With the exception of the NASA thing and the 90% of the competent armed forces thing, the southern analogy fits

>listening to EMS freq on chinkshit radio I finally got in the mail
>find it comfy to listen to the crackle of static as calls come in every now and then
>hear a notification of a cardiac arrest in Valentine Commons

This is the first time I recognized the address given for a call. All night I've been listening to reports of falls, people passing out, all in unfamiliar areas. This one was different- too close to home, not to mention way more specific than most calls I've heard on this first night of listening in.
It's always jarring to realize just how bad of a night this is for some people in our beautiful city. This realization doesn't come often--pain demands its privacy, after all--but when it does, it's lugubrious.

A week or two ago I came home late at night to a bunch of cops outside my apartment complex. A girl had stabbed herself to commit suicide, right in front of her roommate. I didn't know her, but my roommate brought their dog out to help comfort her and stayed out really late because she was so devastated. You think it doesn't happen often until it happens in front of you.

Yeah, creepy shit happens everywhere, every day. I m-mean, post-industrial capitalism has brought everyone out of squalor into... what's the word... dignity, yes! Nothing to see here. This woman's medical bills will be modest, we swear.

Heya, let's talk about careers! What do you do / what do you want to do? This has become more relevant recently, especially as I am graduating college soon. Let's chat!
I wanna make cream as an FPGA engineer while I get my PE licensure, hopefully while staying in the RDU/RTP area for a while.

>no reasons exist to use LaTeX for documents that do not contain complex mathematical formula

As THAT freetard in CHASS, I feel super called out. Use templates!

>> No.9937  

>>9932
I absolutely agree that they're wrong about NO reasons existing as they're using slave mentality to determine there's no reason. The "no reason" is that it doesn't increase productivity and instead slowed it down in their study. Productivity has been steadily increasing anyway with no similar increase in wages, so the eternal push toward HYPER EFFICIENCY is meaningless unless you're the owner-class or get more upset the longer you do something. The enjoyment of the laborer is literally relevant and (if you need a cold-blooded reason to care about the happiness of others) will likely increase productivity longterm. There's def not a /need/ to use LaTeX when you're just some CHASShole, but anyone who likes it better should do it that way imo. Word requires the death of the user and sometimes I ain't finna die.
