Currently I have a few things on my mind, my girlfriend, art, n school.

I went back to school today from break n things did not go well as planed this mornin n it just ruined my mood n my day. I woke up to greasy hair thou I showed TWICE yesterday (What I get for not showerin at all over break), woke up cryin bc my dad got mad at me for it thou it wasn't my fault, n felt like breakin down all day in my classes bc my anxiety was bad at school like it usually is. I also feel as if I hurt my girl but things are fine between us, n imma re workin an old art piece that was Rush related but imma redrawin it n makin it Cure related, n I think Pearl will like it, bc Pearl has liked all my art I have posted on my public Cure instagram I run with 2 close friends (I also have a Private spam/80's n 90's account too).

Try a pinch of baking soda for that hair. Mix it in with your shampoo and your hair will feel so clean and fresh! Only do it about once a week because if you do it too much it might dry your hair out.

On my mind today is just school n my girl. I went to school today n got new music n band class, n yesterday my girl sent me this:

Te amo demasiado que por ti bajaría la luna y las estrellas. Es imposible pero lo haría solo por tí.
 
 N what I sent this to her a bit before:
 Eres tan perfecta como yo no eres kk eres hermosa como Mary Poole también dulce y bonita y sorpredente, te amo mucho, por favor no hables mal de ti mi amor.

Honestly truly my soulmate, n in 2 days it will be 3 weeks  :oops: :oops: :oops: :oops:

Trolls can be annoying, I know that...  :roll:
It's easy to say "ignore them", but it's not something which is easily done.

On my mind is a rather mundane thing: my bank account, which is at a lowpoint.  :(
Hope I can continue working and make some money, to be able to go to concerts etc., maybe a little holiday.

Other than that, on my mind is the upcoming weekend, weather should be nice enough to take a little trip & meeting my ex-girlfriend (we are on good terms), this should be a great experience.  :)

Watch the trailer and it will give you most info you'll need!

I might watch it on telly, but I won't go out and buy the dvd, if you know what I mean...

(Currently I've been watching "Bates Motel", which was pretty good. So it's still on my mind, somehow.)

I feel better from earlier n me n my girl are fine, tomorrow will be 3 weeks together but idek what to do. I already done like 3 drawings for her, dedicated a song to her, n wrote 1-2 Poems for her.

She's written me a poem back n dedicated a song to me back, but I feel like imma bein annoyin or somethin, n ppl are already hatin us bc they say we can't be bc we are both Lesbian girls or that u can't date someone from distance, but we can do whatever we want bc we are soulmates.  :oops: :oops:

She's my everythin, she means the world to me. I can't live without her, I love her to infinity just like she loves me to infinity. We need each other so much, n someday when I find her, I will hold her in my embrace n give her my first kiss, n never let her go, ever. I love u so much my little fluffy angel Mary soulmates forever n always.

Me too. I have 300 EUR less every month since last April and a new job is not in sight.
I spent too much for antiques and books and the trip to London will cost at least 800 EUR.
That goes around in my mind, but I'm very happy to say that I'm in touch with a Norwegian
author with the same passion: the Royal Air Force. I'm not telling more than that.  ;)

Maybe investing something in cryptocurrencies wouldn't be bad idea. Of course, only invest any surplus of money because this market is highly speculative and highly risky. However, the returns are insane and thousand-times whatever bank would give (for instance, anyone who invested 100 EUR in Ripple on 1st January 2017 had 36,000 EUR by 31 December 2017 - of course, this is not guarantee that this coin will grow the same in 2018, it could just also easily drop to zero)

https://www.reuters.com/article/us-cryptocurrency-2017-factbox/bitcoin-may-be-king-but-ripple-dark-horse-in-crypto-race-idUSKBN1ES1PT

https://www.clivemaund.com/article.php?id=4444

In Germany you guys are lucky, because if you invest something in cryptocurrency and don't touch it for one year, you don't need to declare any eventual profit to the tax office.

https://coinsutra.com/tax-free-bitcoin-countries/

Again, let me stress that all the above is highly risky, hence, before doing any investment I would read carefully about the asset you want to invest in. This market is pure speculation and some assets have not real value yet people is buying like a crazy just because of the hype. And of course, don't ever sell your house or ask bank loans to buy this, as some crazy people is doing.

Another way to earn some extra cash is with this https://storj.io/share.html
Of course any eventual profit will depend on your computer performance, internet connection speed, storage you're willing to share, electricity costs... I will try this and report back later. I Recently bought a 8TB hard-disk and I am willing to share 6TB. We will see how that goes. I definitely don't pretend to get rich over storj, but I don't mind to get some extra bucks by sharing some of my PC's space.

but we can do whatever we want bc we are soulmates.

Yes, of course you can. Dreams can become real, if you believe and keep pursuing...  :)

Wow, that seems a lot, but I know: London is expensive. Which is why I probably won't be there in July.  :(

Which is why I probably won't "invest" in any of those (even if I had any "surplus" money).
But if I had invested in Bitcoins a while ago, I might be rich now...

To be honest, 2017 wasn't so bad financially. A life insurance had been paid out
and I received a final compensation from my former employer and I like it when
the money is 'in flow'. I heard about Bitcoins recently, but I think it's too risky as well.

Still on my mind is the show, idek if I can do it bc Ik I will f*** up. Also on my mind is yet again my girl. She wrote this for me n I'm cryin:

"Y que cada estrella fuese una flor
Y así regalarte
Todo un racimo de estrellas" 🌌🌹
"El dolor es fuerte y lo soporto
Porque vivo pensando en tu amor
Quiero verte, tenerte y besarte
Y entregarte todo mi corazón"

She is the sweetest little fluffy angel 😢♥️

It's too late now, I guess. But those who invested in them a year ago, should have made some gain.

Well one day I might have to "go for" some "savings" as well (like life insurance or whatever)...
But hopefully more work will be coming in. Year hasn't started off too badly, so looking good (in the long run - it might take a while until my bank account looks better though).  :)

On my mind is again a mundane thing, book-keeping (yawn)!  :roll:

Other thing, a little better, is visiting an old aquaintance, living near Stuttgart now, he's in a wheelchair these days and not in best health, so I should visit, hopefully this week(end)...

On my mind is my show on Sunday I am so nervous I am drummin in the show but I am afraid I will mess up.

That is totally normal - don't worry too much! Fingers crossed all will go well!  :)

I have a you tube where I mostly post video edits n a few random vids!! Actually the 2nd vid I posted is gettin lots of play time, but the rest of videos really aren't n I find it unfair. I posted a video of Alex Lifeson drunk by the campfire n it gets so many views, yet I spent 3 hours on my recent video edit I posted there in it only gets 4 likes :( :( :( :( :( :( IT'S SO UNFAIR.

My you tube is @thatonebeckfan

Beck Hansen fan not a Jeff Beck fan (No offense but I haven't heard a single song by Jeff Beck but he seem cool!!)

Yea true but I've felt this way for months even before falling for Mary.


She tells me she can't survive this shit world without me.


I doubt it, no one says that to me, does she mean it?? She could just be lying to me. Who knows mate.


I f*** up n everyone leaves bc the paranoia I get over thinking that ppl are lying to me bc I've been screwed over so much n also bc anxiety n depression n I'm bi polar too.


I have no real friends only online or in my head n I've been used to it I guess. I've pretty much only had fake friends my whole life minus like 1 person n a few of his friends back in 2nd grade for like a year. Everyone else just an acquaintance or a fake friend.

Post by: PearlThompsonsBloodflowers on January 24, 2018, 22:08:54
Okay well the problem is her so I am staying of Instagram for a bit to think n such.

She told me she never intended to hurt me, but that she needs some time away from me bc she hurt me.

I respect her choice/decision and I Hope she feels/gets better soon. Yes we still love each other but she just needs some time to get better, which I 100% understand n support fully. Tbh I need to do same.

In The Meantime I will try to gather myself mentally, n mostly be on Curefans n The Rush Forum till I feel okay. I will still use Insta, like when I'm watching Rock Block, I Want My 80's, or 120 Minutes on MTV Classic n also a tiny bit at school n a tiny bit at my drum stuff I do on Saturdays but that's it until I feel okay n my girl feels okay, I need some time to feel safe.  :smth049 :smth049 :smth049 :smth049 :smth049 :smth049 :smth049 :smth049 :smth049 :smth049 :smth049 :smth049 :smth049 :smth049 :smth049 :smth049 :smth049 :smth049 :smth049 :smth049 :smth049 :smth049 :smth049 :smth049

Just read it! OK, so things are more clear and you're not upset anymore. Good. Glad to hear you're feeling better now :)

Thanks but i'm still upset, n nothing is helping not even music, school is making things worse but lucky I have 2 half days this week.  My grades are slipping, n I am failing Math with a D, n I gave 2 C's n I can't do anything to raise them n so I am a failure now I suppose, but it's okay my dad thinks the same too mate.

I am gonna fake sick so I won't go to math tutoring tonight so I can just stay home n draw Perry. Today I am gonna draw a lot of Perry sketchs n some Pearl maybe too so I can help feel better n I will listen to my favorite bands n blast em loud. Maybe this will help idek but I will try.

Sorry for the spam it will end in a few days maybe, or never, but probably never.

Yup, sorry to say so, but this is indeed becoming a bit much and confusing... it might be helpful for readers of the forum, if you keep to one (clearer) message and not put out every thought in your head every other minute...

I like to think most of us do know how love can hurt.  :(
(Of course, many of us listen to the Cure's songs, because this is what many of those songs tell about.)

In my mind is an elderly woman which almost killed herself and shocked a train driver, me and others.
She crossed the tracks illegally with luggage in both hands when an ICE fast train approached at full speed.
It went so fast that I couldn't even think that she's a suicide. The train driver saw her in the last
moment and gave a signal. She missed the train by a hair's breadth. All that happened today at 9.00am.
I witnessed it from the opposite platform. She didn't see the train approaching because she was late
when she tried to reach her own train on the platform, where I stood. Unbelievable...

She crossed the tracks illegally with luggage in both hands when an ICE fast train approached at full speed.

Did you help her up the platform? And then hopefully gave her a "telling off" for doing this?  :o
Title: Re: What's On Your Mind Atm??
Post by: MeltingMan on March 03, 2018, 12:22:01
No, I didn't. She was about 50m away and someone obstructed my view for a moment.  :oops:
I don't know how she made it. The platform is at least 1m high. A female employee of the
board service attempted to get in touch with her, but she ignored her and went straight into the train who
had stopped a couple of minutes earlier. A conductor was also nearer than I, so I hope she has received
her "telling off" in the train. That was crazy. Suicides in such a way are not uncommon in our region.  :?

That was crazy. Suicides in such a way are not uncommon in our region.  :?

This happens often, unfortunately...It is always shocking when I wait for the train and there are delays or cancelled trains because of suicides

Yesterday was strange. After the incident on the rail tracks I must have broken off my short trip
to the town. I was afraid of freezing to death and fled into a large bank building. Happily,
I made it back home. Today I wrote my thirtieth application - who knows the out-come,
and walked for fifty minutes. Saw adults and kids on ice. That reminds me of a Bruegel-landscape.
We have -6℃ outside. No spring in sight so far.  :(

I got a call from my dad yesterday, my great uncle has Alzheimer’s and has been living in a care home and in his lucid moments, he’s been asking for my dad so we are going to see him today. I’ve not seen him in ten years. I’m hoping he recognises us...if not, still, it’ll be nice to see him. Pretty sure he’ll still be able to insult my blue hair!
Title: Re: What's On Your Mind Atm??
Post by: word_on_a_wing on March 27, 2018, 14:16:26
Thanks for sharing Chemicaloverload.  It's amazing how the lucid moments shine through such awareness. Hope you and your dad take care of yourselves, I'd be interested to hear what the experience was like for you.

I'm thinking about a really weird dream I had last night, and trying to work out the meaning....
 I'm in an indoor shopping area and see two young girls and an older boy. The girls and boy are pretending not to know each other, but I'm watching from the sidelines and can see they are running a scam on passersby,  I point out what they're doing, and they all run in opposite directions. I chase the girls. Then the next scene the girls seem to be caught... But now they're not girls, they are shrimp (prawns). They are in the front window of a restaurant, beside other seafood (all alive). The seafood are able to talk to one another. Another sea creature (lobster I think) is modeling for the girls/shrimp what they should do: he/she is jumping into a fryer (boiling hot oil), then quickly jumping out again.  Seeming to model for the girls/shrimp that with perseverance they can continue to jump in and out, until fully cooked. It seems this is the hoped-for end-goal.  There is a sense of this being a very positive thing.  A sense also of strong inspiration, but also that the experience very very challenging.
..feel free to take a guess to the meaning!

Thank you all, it went as well as it could. He saw me and instantly recognised me which was wonderful but he was crying. He whsipered in my ear as he was hugging me ‘I remember the last time I seen you, do you?’ and he smiled and laughed looking at me the whole time, the best I could of asked for. He’s lucid at little points but in his own world most of the time. He knew who we were but didn’t recall our names, if that makes sense? I asked him if he knew other members of my family and it seems he has blocked them out, but not me and my dad. He was talking about his sister like she was still alive, bless. We are gonna go back next week and take him out instead of staying there, he kept saying how he felt locked in, really awful to hear. It seems as though the illness has made rather aggressive hence why he’s there. I get the feeling he would escape given the chance!

And yes Ulrich, he did , he said ‘ pass me my clippers so I can that f*****g hair off’....  :lol: At least he has not lost that part of him.

WOAW- you’re dream is mental, the prawns remind me of a SA film. If I put a psychology hat on (it’s not a good hat btw) it would seem (see, already using the shrink like words) your overseeing a situation from a distance and battling your own sense of morality. Then you discover and accept them for who they really are and begin to understand the gravity of their purpose, finding solace in it.

The shrink would then ask you...do you know who you really are inside?

Fire the shrink. Eat the shrimp.

...haha that'd be too easy!

Of course. But many years ago I had a meal w/ seafood - that night I had a strange dream about being on a beach in the water and fish (shark?) trying to bite me.  :o

he said ‘ pass me my clippers so I can cut that f*****g hair off’....  :lol: At least he has not lost that part of him.

Oh well, some things never change, eh?
Thanks for reporting - I think it'll be good for him to see your faces every now and then. (Plus if possible play him some old music from his past, I heard it can be a good experience.)

They do not :) I shall try that with him. I know that sometimes giving them something to love, like a doll helps them too but I don’t think he’s the doll type. I intend to just spend some quality time with him, as much as the family will allow and go from there.

WOAW- you’re dream is mental, the prawns remind me of a SA film. If I put a psychology hat on (it’s not a good hat btw) it would seem (see, already using the shrink like words) your overseeing a situation from a distance and battling your own sense of morality. Then you discover and accept them for who they really are and begin to understand the gravity of their purpose, finding solace in it.

The shrink would then ask you...do you know who you really are inside?

Fire the shrink. Eat the shrimp.

Wow I love your guess, but I don't think it quite fits.  ...you probably won't believe this, but I'm a psychologist ("shrink")!! And a vegetarian!!  ...Please change your slogan from Fire the shrink, Eat the shrimp to > Hire the shrink, Feed the shrimp !!

...Yes I am aware of the irony, and should be interpreting my own dreams! In my defense I work with kids, and don't specialise in psychoanalysis or dream analysis :)

Hahaha well you certainly have the trickery of a psychologist, tripping us up trying to guess :P

I took a stab. I have quite the fear of sea life, perhaps your skills will come in handy unravelling that?

Consider the shrink hired. Keep the shrimp...as far away as possible...

Yes, the effects of listening to music for dementia seems quite remarkable ...in Australia they've done some research, and there's a great clip here that talks about it (hopefully can be viewed from other countries)

http://www.abc.net.au/7.30/harnessing-the-power-of-song-to-help-people-with/7854230

I recall when I first watched this and heard that the most powerful effects come from the music which is personal to the person (such as favourite music from the past).  ...so...perhaps in a few decades we could be elderly folk listening to The Cure for therapeutic purposes?!

In any case, it is a good idea to spend some time with (older or younger) relatives - as they say "loneliness" is a problem these days for many.

Well, I hope my relatives and others will remember that I do like The Cure (and more) and won't start playing me cheesy 80s pop I can't stand any more!  :lol:

I’m trying to decide on whether I should have Catalana Crema in coffee or Baileys? I’m celebrating my freedom, last class of the year was today. Next- exams. But Easter first. Eggs. Lots of them.

Side bar: watching Over The Garden Wall with spooks, has anyone seen or heard of it? (Have i asked this before? I feel as though I might of?! Losing my marbles...perhaps it’s time to stop watching cartoons haha) I realise many might not watch cartoons, but it is excellently dark and has some supremely catchy tunes in it  :)

Haha my fav Talk Talk song, I know most of it by heart and I know the video by heart completely.


Such A Shame to believe in escape, a laugh on every face, and that's a change. Till I'm finally left with an eight. Tell me to relax, I just stare. Maybe I don't know if I should change a feeling that we share, its a shame. (Such A Shame) Number me with rage, its a shame (Such A Shame), Number me in haste, it's a shame. This eagerness to a change. It's a shame. The dice decide my fate, that's a shame. In these trembling hands my fate, tells me to react, I don't care. Maybe it's unkind if I should change a feeling we share, it's a shame.

I have work coming out my ears and yet, I’m sitting here, browsing the net, watching Scandal. Why? Because spooks likes to talk. She likes to talk so much that the little hours of quiet I can steal from the night are keeping me sane and from joining in her endless babble.

I’m off again to see my Uncle tomorrow. My dad told me today that he’s been ‘canoodling’ with another resident and was caught by his grandchild kissing the lady. I laughed but the family were so horrified that the poor lady was moved to another unit while his actual wife had to see the Dr for Valium. I know this isn’t uncommon for dementia patients, to form other relationships while still being married and to be fair, I’m not against it. I get the hurt that comes with it, but if it keeps that person happy for what little time they have left, then let them be happy, at any cost.

I’m looking forward to lunch tomorrow, when he can get out and be free for an afternoon.

Hahaha rule 101 of unravelling- don’t do it in a formal setting, or the men with white coats might take you away...

Maybe a bit of both? It helps to be heard and also just to say whatever was on your mind at the time. It’s clearly done you some good in a sense that you’re reflecting back on it.

Babblefish? It was the best and only back in the day for translating. Like you, I conversed with someone but they did speak English at least. We are still friends to this day, 16 years later. Many a late night we spent on msn messenger, helped us both :)

and she doesn't talk to me anymore. It's weird from today's perspective
because I have met her in real life. From time to time I googled her name,
and today I found an article with a photo from her (she worked for a newspaper
until 2016). I couldn't read the text - her face and her smile was enough. I held
my head with both hands and said to myself: OMG, OMG, OMG. I love her...

(I grew up in the 80s, with all this talk of the atomic war being close; religious folk talked about the "apocalypse" - and then people wondered that I wasn't interested much in getting a good job, learning for my future etc.?  :smth011 )

The religious folk still speak about the apocalypse, my mum included. Riveting stuff. Love hearing about it  :roll:

Long live your optimism Ulrich, as strange as it might feel, it’s good for you :)

In my mind is a former girlfriend. I haven't seen her for seventeen years
and she doesn't talk to me anymore. It's weird from today's perspective
because I have met her in real life. From time to time I googled her name,
and today I found an article with a photo from her (she worked for a newspaper
until 2016). I couldn't read the text - her face and her smile was enough. I held
my head with both hands and said to myself: OMG, OMG, OMG. I love her...

Wow, what are you going to do?

Good question. I did mistakes and she might think that I'm stalking her (again).
She was still in a relationship when I met her, but I was so blind to notice that,
and when I fully realized it, it was already over. I know where she lives and she
knows that I'm here, so I hope she's our guest at times.  ;)

Umm... *feeling a little concerned*
When I asked what you may do, I had been thinking something such as an opportunity to gently and respectfully say "hi". ...your response surprised me...
it sounds like you recognise in yourself a vulnerability towards stalking, but also that when you acted in that direction previously it had a negative impact on your life.  Sounds wise to keep an eye out for those urges, as I dare say that would not lead to anything good. 

...I notice in myself that sometimes I can feel drawn to someone, and later can realise they represent symbolically something that I'm wanting more of in my life ....so it's not really about the specific person, but about myself and aspects of myself I need to get more in tune with, or things I realise I need to bring more into balance in my life.
...Just sharing these ideas in case it should resonate :)

There's nothing I would rather do. She had once problems in her relationship and decided
to leave him, and not only this, she decided to move to a different town. That was in a way
an exceptional situation - for her and for me. I visited her spontaneously in her new flat after
we had spent New Year's Eve together and all hell broke loose. I couldn't handle the situation.
That's why I'm careful regarding 'spontaneous visits'. Thank you.  :smth023

has died or is seriously ill, forcing her to reduce her activity as editor-in-chief. We will see...

In part. I do have emails promising me "part" of what I'm owed for mid-May. But I have nothing specific (which a court would accept). Never mind.

In another case, I do have receipts from my bank about money being booked off my account by a company I have absolutely no ties with. Now it's up to them to prove why they did this and pay me back the amount they owe. (A few bookings were cancelled by my bank. My bad: I noticed too late, as I'd thought it was something else when it first appeared...)  :unamused:

Strange coincidence. Yesterday I walked through the town centre and then I saw
that person who once owed me a large sum. We had arranged a monthly repayment.
It worked good for a while, but after a year or so she started to putting me off. Luckily
for me, I had enough receipts and a handwritten contract and went to a lawyer. It was
unpleasant and didn't save our friendship but at least I got my money back. Lesson learned.  ;)

By the way, I like that picture - almost like a painting!

in between. I met her stepfather and his behavior was strange. It was horrible
in the end but somehow I survived it. Someone with knowledge told me that she's
unable to have a relationship. That was hard to face. Today I know that this liaison
was unhealthy. I'm saying that because no-one warned me of "damaged girls".

Lots of people are unable to keep up a relationship (just look at numbers of divorces), for various reasons.

Which reminds me of this song/lyric (no idea how Hugo R. managed to write about me and my ex, but...):

http://www.lyricshall.com/lyrics/Hugo+Race+Fatalists/Lost+In+The+Material+World/
Quote
Life's too short to say goodbye
And leave the story here
I need a witness
Only you can make me real
I won't forget you
As you fade away
Into your future joy and sorrow
We couldn't finish what we started
...
We are damaged seeds
Scattered by the breeze
Numbers on a screen
Ghosts in the machine
And do you question this?
You've got to answer me
Does this mean anything to you girl?
Now you're lost in the material world...

I'm not sure what you mean. I didn't see the stepfather as the wrongdoer.
He acted very reserved and he were there when I didn't expect him. My subconsciousness
told me that something isn't right and I saw no other reason than to get in touch with her
again. Only then she completely freaked out. I found myself in a room with Medusa. Some
men can handle such a woman - I couldn't. It is one thing to reject someone's love and a
different thing to reject and trample on it. This is pathological.

MeltingMan, even if you'd tell us the whole story, none of us will ever be able to understand 100% what really happened - maybe she thought your subconscious/intuition was totally wrong... maybe she's just crazy... who can know?

I’m with you Ulrich, no one can or will understand. What I mean MM is that no one in this world is damaged to begin with, people or experiences make them that way. How she’s acted towards you, you’re only seeing it from your perspective and quite rightly so, but to generalise her and all others as ‘damaged girls’, you can’t, something has made her that way. I hope you can move on from her and heal also, perhaps eventually with time (and with Ulrichs musical suggestions ;) ) you’ll come to understand what you currently don’t about this specific girl. Experience serves you well for future days.

I'm sorry for my private sh*t. Thanks to both of you. I'm "damaged" too and I'm surrounded
by "damaged" people. That's the truth and the truth is always subjective. We all have our "back-pack"
of private or life issues in general, but the major problem is that narcissism is so widely accepted by
the western civilization. That means roughly: no regret, no excuses, inability to love and pure egocentrism.
This is what I have once encountered with her. I needed help and I got it very soon. Other men were not
so privileged, and all those (young) men I had in mind when I pointed on her. OK...it's enough. Thanks.

No, don’t be sorry. Honesty of this degree is admirable. Narcissism, there is a fine line between it and self preservation, for which I’m all for. Preserve thyself is an unwritten rule that everyone should follow and that way, you won’t lose yourself. From what you have encountered, don’t let it spoil your outlook. If you are surrounded by emotional vampires who suck the very life force from you, find new people that wont  :)

Oh, I do David and I did it all the time. I had my neighbors in mind when I mentioned it.
Some of them died last year surprisingly and relatively young - others are depending from
alcohol and cigarettes and another one (a female) has been "damaged" by a stalking ex-friend.
Good people don't stay forever and letting go was the hardest lesson I must have learned. Family

MM, I was just gonna say (in reply to dsanchez), that you might end up all alone on an island if you try that... ;)

well...you gotta change that. get surrounded by people who make you a better person (personally, professionally) and keep distance of those who don't. life's already hard and having the wrong people around you will just make it harder.

Well, as I said before, everybody's "damaged" in their own special way.
Of course most sane people will try to keep distance from those who don't treat them well. I try too.

On the other hand, if anyone close needs my help, I will try to help (and I suffered sometimes, e.g. when I borrowed stuff or money and didn't get it back). I don't really care if they "make me a better person" - in the end that's up to me and nobody else.

I remember years ago I knew someone who was always moaning that he had no money and was in debt. When he proudly told a story of how he "threw money out the window" (in my view), of course I reacted angrily. I did not write him out of my life though.
Thus, this guy is still a friend in a way, he now lives in Stuttgart and is in a wheelchair (health problems), but I do visit him from time to time.  :cool
And I think he knows he receives an honest response from me if he asks me anything...

The videos aren't so bad. In "damaged goods" he (CRP) described a situation
which I had once experienced 1:1 during my first (and only) marriage. The absence
of the father (at work or dead) was a feature with both women. "Damaged goods" is
rhetorically brilliant, but Schopenhauer analyzed exactly the same 200 years earlier (!)
and it seems as if nothing has changed since then.

A "happy end" - as suggested - is very unlikely. I do not judge or hate her. The door is slightly ajar...

Why were they clearing it in the first place? I ask because I'm reading a judicial reivew on something similar, only it was a park in Edinburgh which had remained a green space for over a 100 years and they wanted to build a school on it. They built the school. Completely ignoring the original disposition prohibiting it.

Title: Re: What's On Your Mind Atm??
Post by: MeltingMan on October 09, 2018, 11:51:30
Well, the forest is located on the edge of a large brown coal mine and it should disappear,
if you ask the energy industry. Several environmental protection agencies had taken
legal action against it with the support of local communities and other people from
different regions too, luckily. The second and decisive trial is attached to the administrative
court of Cologne, and won't be decided before 2020, so far so good I suppose.  ;)

It's a win for environmental law and for the surrounding communities, preserving the forrest. Coal mines, they are a massive part of our landscape here too, all of which are defunct. The environment is big on the agenda at the minute, I can feel the panic setting in.
Title: Re: What's On Your Mind Atm??
Post by: MeltingMan on October 10, 2018, 12:08:32
The same panic has once been spread with CFC and the ozone hole. I mean there's actually
no need for any panic, but the lifestyle of the mainstream is indeed a problem. That forest
is only the top of an iceberg. Some people built small houses in the branches and lived there
for years(!) - widely ignored by the media. Until now.

Your story of the school reminds me of another building but vice versa. It was used in its last
decades as medical center (for British troops) and then as a kindergarten - the Farne Villa in
Bad Oeynhausen. You can watch it on old postcards - for my taste the most prominent house
in town - but after a long period of dilapidation they finally demolished it in 1968. The worst
case ever, but nobody wanted to preserve a building that represented the pre wartime. The good
thing is: the public opinion is changing - slowly.

It happened a lot after the war, that old houses were demolished and the materials used for building new ones (or repairing damaged ones).
Nowadays a lot has changed, since the 1970s "protection of (historical) buildings and monuments" has become much more important!  :cool
For example, over the years I have enjoyed looking at the buildings of the fortress in Ulm (built about 150 years ago):
http://www.festung-ulm.de/

Five years ago I went to a festival held at the Old Gasworks buildings in Augsburg, now they will be re-used for theatre, restaurants etc:

Title: Re: What's On Your Mind Atm??
Post by: MeltingMan on October 12, 2018, 09:54:08
In a way Oeynhausen could stand such a loss. The people had other problems after the war.
Therefore the value for neo-goth or neo-romantic buildings was little. My or our generation is
not responsible for the war(s), so we ask: was it right to demolish them - long term?
I have to admit that it took thirty years to decide that Oeynhausen will get a bypass and it
will take another fifty years to initiate a possible reconstruction of the villa - apart from the
money. I'm not angry, but when I heard about it firstly (two years ago) I couldn't believe that
this had happened.

Yes Ulrich, the same idea of ‘listed’ buildings over here. To preserve them. But, like most things in life it comes down whether the Local Authority has the money to preserve them. So lots of buildings that have lost their use, they let they go to the point of being a danger so they then have the right to knock them down which is sad really. I live near an old hospital and they are doing it to that. It has a beautiful old clock tower and who ever owned it prior to it beoming an NHS building, had gifted it to the NHS, so what they’ll do according to the original disposition, who knows, but they are letting it crumble and die. It has an old railway tunnel too, that used to ship wounded soldiers to be treated.

You worry as you get older that the next generation will miss out on all these points of historical interest. I keep hoping they turn the old buildings into houses.

The hospital where I had once begun my professional career was closed in autumn 2017.
It was built in 1868 for a growing population and it's located in Genthin (NE of Magdeburg).
The loss of more than a million Euro per year led to the closure. But my impression is the inhabitants
do rather complain about the job cuts and not about the building itself. It's made of the typical red-brown
bricks. Memories came up when I was there for a job interview on the other side of the street. If they don't
reuse the rooms in any form, this building will be definitely in danger - not now understandably, but after
a while the clinic operator will focus a demolition. I have seen it here in town. Nobody cares until the
digger arrives...then it's often too late.

Yeah, I do agree here. Many old buildings can be "saved" when a "new use" can be found for them, e.g. here in Germany some old monasteries have started offering their buildings for "congresses, trainings" etc. and they do quite well.

Remember the link I shared a few months ago about the building the Cure used many years ago in their "Charlotte Sometimes" video? It's been turned into flats for people to live in. Very good.

Of course, if a building is protected by law ("Denkmalschutz" in German) they will have to preserve it. (If it gets knocked down, they will be in trouble with the law.)

I enjoy looking at old buildings (and taking photos of them), thus I often take a walk through old town centres. I like it when I get too see an old castle or church or tower being re-used for new purposes (museum or even a governmental instution).

OK. I've got it. I must admit that I haven't followed "Places of interest..." because
I can't afford any trip now or even next year. Thanks for the remark, however.

What appointment was that? (Well, the person who still owes me money, has more or less disappeared from the face of the earth - at least I don't know where she is... but I try to keep my mind off her...)

It is indeed a new person. We agreed to meet again and are both looking forward to it.
Will see, it could go any way, but I am positive about it.  :cool

Shouldn't have, the way it turned out. (Borrowing money and then disappearing, isn't the nice way - only can reach her via email right now.)  :mad:

In a way it's my fault: She is looking at me as a friend and not as a lover. That means
friend-zoned; acting like a friend. Building up faith - building up a "connection" lowers
sexual attraction in her eyes and means entering the friend zone. It can happen to everyone.
Leaving it is a proper challenge.

I think it’s very cute you didn’t know what it meant :) or more so, the terminology

Friendship is the problem though. If you want to be friends with someone that’s cool, but problem with men being friendzoned is they don’t wanna just be friends...

Why you finding it hard to leave the friend zone?

First of all, I wish Ulrich all the best with his new contact. Keep us informed about the ongoing.  ;)

Staying in the friend zone is normal and common, unless you have developed sexual desire for
someone. The latter helped me to get in touch with women anyway - it's a miracle, if you will.

By the way, I haven't followed the thread so far because I'm a "morning-type".

After the date (it wasn't
actually a "date") I had pain in my lower abdomen for about two days if you know what I mean.
But I'm quite sure that I don't love her, and love changes everything - as you know. Only the sexual
desire is massive - a ten on a scale of ten, but I know it can ruin my life if I don't love her.
And love is the icing on the cake, so we are connected as friends, doing our things - living our
lifes and have a cappuccino from time to time. A very common sight in Germany. Just a side note...

The truth is: We know each other for over ten years. She has an adult son from her first marriage,
an ex-husband and an "admirer", so I'm the fourth in a colored carousel. She appreciated my cards,
phone calls and my general attention (that's what she said to me on the phone), but there's nothing
more...from her side. Welcome to the friend zone.  :lol:

Post by: chemicaloverload on October 24, 2018, 10:32:02

Hmmm MM, you sure this isn’t just a friends with benefits type thing? ;) Why would it have to ruin your life? Can you not just have fun without the emotional bit?

Why not appreciate it for what it is without trying to label it. Ride it out. The good thing about carousels is when someone gets off, another gets on  :lol:

 Well, there's nothing I can do in the moment. She pulled a red line and someone else
 rides it out, possibly. She belongs to a sect and when she opens her mouth you can imagine
 what comes out. That alone shakes me off. I have a different background and she knows it.
 We can perhaps talk about it, but I suppose the "fun" level with her is lower than it really is.

Oh, thank you, that's so kind of you. I'm glad if anyone's interested, because I need to tell someone when my heart (& head) is full of excitement...
So it's good we have this topic here for more "private" discussions.

She sent me a sweet text message in reply to mine.  :happy

And btw, no problem at which time you follow the thread, some of us live in different time zones. I'm just looking in when I find the time (sometimes during work, sometimes after).

...we are connected as friends, doing our things - living our

Ah yes, I think I know this sight.
Not just seeing other people do this, but from my own perspective, too. ;)

Oh well, you'll have to accept that (for the moment at least).
The other stuff (a religious thing?) does not sound too good.

The girl I met is a little "active" in a church, but she's "down to earth" and seems like a very "normal" person to me (so far) - and that's good.

Aw Ulrich, does this mean you’ve had enough of me and need new friends already?  :1f62d:

Ulrich, it’s nice to see you happy :) and it’s even better that you wish to share it. Long may it continue. As for new friends, I’m glad your not ready to dispose of me quite yet :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes: Who would amuse you if you did?

Very true!  :D

There are some people/friends I don't see much anymore - some are far away, some I don't want to see too often, but I hardly ever said to anyone: "I never wanna see you again". (Someone would have to cross several red lines to make me say that...)

That’s kind of crazy right ? Maybe it’s just hard for my mind to wrap itself around the fact that something/someone who feels so personal to me ...is experienced like this by 3.1 million others 😮

Right. It's yet too soon to think about a relationship. But the second date indicates that it's more than
just "friendship". By the way, did she yawn? It's not a joke: If someone doesn't like you, he/she doesn't
yawn. It's therapeutically approved.  ;)

I have no idea (that means I don't know if that is true and I don't remember if she did yawn - I'm sure I didn't because I wasn't sleepy for once and she didn't bore me at all...)  :lol:

For me, it's more about the way she looks at me and how she smiles.  :heart-eyes

Oh and btw, I'm sure if she hadn't liked me she wouldn't have agreed on another rendezvous.

It is smaller, thinner but more expensive, so he suggested a 0% financing. But you know, I'm
not a friend of those deals. I wonder if the laptop technology isn't "out-riped" today. Maybe it's

Ah, don’t worry, if she’s been ill, shes probably been doubly ill which is why she’s not in touch. Give it time

It's been a bumpy road this week... not much communication with the aforementioned woman, tried to phone several times; when I reached her on Monday she was sick and wanted to phone me the next day, but never did.

I'm sorry to hear that. Wait until she reaches out to you. Don't call or text too much.
I made the same mistake.  :(

Well, via text we'd communicated; it was supposed to happen that we'd phone on an evening, but I couldn't reach her - that's no big problem, but hearing nothing for two days after is a bit... "disappointing" maybe?
Of course I can imagine she's busy with job and private stuff, especially if she's still a bit sick... so I'll wait...

You have already shown the initiative, I think. Now it's up to her. Let her come to you.
If you call and text too often, you risk a rejection. Give her a week or so. Maybe she feels
better then for the third (?) date. Think about Christmas. Everything is OK so far.  :angel

An old English poem about today from childhood....

The Fifth of November

    Remember, remember!
    The fifth of November,
    The Gunpowder treason and plot;
    I know of no reason
    Why the Gunpowder treason
    Should ever be forgot!
    Guy Fawkes and his companions
    Did the scheme contrive,
    To blow the King and Parliament
    All up alive.
    Threescore barrels, laid below,
    To prove old England's overthrow.
    But, by God's providence, him they catch,
    With a dark lantern, lighting a match!
    A stick and a stake
    For King James's sake!
    If you won't give me one,
    I'll take two,
    The better for me,
    And the worse for you.
    A rope, a rope, to hang the Pope,
    A penn'orth of cheese to choke him,
    A pint of beer to wash it down,
    And a jolly good fire to burn him.
    Holloa, boys! holloa, boys! make the bells ring!
    Holloa, boys! holloa boys! God save the King!
    Hip, hip, hooor-r-r-ray!

The autumn is my favorite season. Walked yesterday through the park at 5pm when it was getting dark.
Orange, green and yellow colors everywhere. Perfect sunset in the west. The fog rose slowly from a river.
Here and there a chirping robin. Large formations of crows in the distance - looking for a place to sleep in the
branches. Two grandmas with buggies and dog ahead in the twilight. Peace...

 Well, this is at least something. We had recently a VIP godparent campaign in the Hambacher forest
 for selected trees. At that point the public opinion has already shifted - thanks to the media coverage.
 And the administrative courts aren't unimpressed by that. That impressed me, on the other hand. We
 need justice and not dog-eat-dog capitalism.

It's an intreeguing concept isn't it? Do you think by giving tree's legal rights, it goes far enough though? Ecuador has the protection of mother earth, Pacha Mama, written into their constitution.

On the one hand, I think it's good when people do protest against the deforestation of certain areas (especially if they are beautiful old trees), on the other hand: often these things go "unnoticed" during building projects at the edge of town or so. It can go so quickly and if/when anyone takes notice, it's too late. :1f62a:

And then we have a crazy guy becoming president in Brazilia, who is actually "pro" deforestation of the rain forest(s)... sadly the trees won't be able to sue him.  :unamused:

This is exactly the problem Ulrich. Every good idea is about 50 years too damn late. I've heard nothing but bad things about the new Brazillian president. Him and Trump...bad combo.

Sometimes the trees can be saved, if/when there are enough people taking action. The Hambacher forest for example (as mentioned by MeltingMan) did receive the media attention.
There are other places though where (almost) nobody cares.

Now for something completely different:
I'll soon be giving up hope of ever hearing from her again...  :'‑(

No, actually not. It can be only a symbolic step. I see clearing campaigns every autumn - with
mixed feelings. People tend to act first and think later. Look, an oak tree takes 100-150 years
to be fully grown, and then you can fell that beauty in a couple of minutes! Not good, and the
nature strikes back, of course. Our actions or non-actions always have consequences. For my
taste the German government is not ambitious enough. But that's a new topic.  ;)

Title: Re: What's On Your Mind Atm??
Post by: Ulrich on November 09, 2018, 13:55:01
There are no "new" details. Last week, as reported, she wanted to phone me the next day, which she didn't. I suggested via text that I call on Thursday then (as I was busy on Wednesday), to which she replied "yes we could phone on Thursday", but when I tried she did not answer her phone. No call back, no nothing.
After this "long" time I took this as a clear sign she does not want any more contact. I will maybe send one last message to ask if she's okay.

Yeah and I'm really sorry for that. What a bad ending! I suppose you are not interested
in "friendship", are you? It seems as if she's not so interested in you and has problems with her
self-esteem. Otherwise she would call and text you back within two days. She didn't, so I wouldn't
contact her again. When she backs off, and that's the case, you back off too. Do nothing, except the
things you like. Supposing she contacts you first unexpectedly, be happy about it, but make clear that
you are not interested in "friendship". That's what I would do. Harsh story. You deserve something better!

Oh well, never say "never", but in this case it seems unlikely she will suggest that.
When we last talked (from person to person) we were both looking forward to the next meeting, so I have no idea why she changed her mind.  :pensive:

Well I will remember these 2 dates as "special", because they went like a dream. Her eyes, her smile... told me it could've continued in a good way. Obviously she doesn't see it that way any more, which is kinda disappointing. But it's not the end of the world... (or is it?)...

Thank you, I did, solidly, as did spooks. Shes feeling better today too which is also great, she had a sickness bug, even sicked in her sleep the night before which was scary.

Ulrich, do you know what I like about you, you seem to have this magical openness about you, a positivity and the ability to envision the future from the moments you experience with people and I think that is a rare quality. I would hate for you to lose that based on the words of others. So no, its not the end of the world, it will never be  :×

No call back, no nothing.

I had once a girlfriend from the Stuttgart region too. Not very close - just an "in-between" thing.
She waved and smiled at me in the beginning and was open-minded, so she made it easy for me
to flirt with her. After a while she gave me her phone number and I started to "softening-up" the
communication. The result was that she interrupted phone calls for whatever reasons. By that time
she had lived nearby, so I was able to see and talk to her from time to time. But I knew she would
return one day to Stuttgart (that's what she once told me), and I was keen not to be involved too much
emotionally. She was my type - absolutely - but she might had noticed that I "wanted more" and that
she allows only a friendship. So far - so good. Then came our very last meeting (with her mother), just
a cup of coffee you know  ;). After twenty minutes we separated in different directions. In the distance
she turned around to me and said "she wouldn't like types with long hair anyway". -

I still have her number, but I never heard from that woman again.

Oh, thank you, that is so kind of you to say this.
I'm not sure if I do "envision", sometimes it's just a bit of a "dream"... (in this case, it seems, it dissolved quickly...)!

"nothing here ever gets resolved, like a dream you can feel it dissolve
soon as you found it, you lost it" (TV Smith)

Maybe I put a certain "persona" across in internet forums, just like Robert Smith puts a persona across in The Cure (which may be similar to the real one, but not 100% the same, if you know what I mean).

I can be angry and even curse at something at times, if things don't work out my way.
I try to be positive - but I can be negative and depressed too. I try not to let "outside" things influence my well-being too much, but it's not always possible...

In that particular case I was able to walk away without any lovesickness, but I was perplexed, of course.
My divorce and my liaison with the "redactrice" were over for just a year or two. The major concern was
not acting like a stalker. However, I could redirect the focus on my life, my interests and stop b*llsh*tt*ng
myself. Please inform us when "she" calls out of the blue! Thanks.
