Welcome to /eh/

Where everything is just... eh...

/eh/ is not for crying, /rnb/ is for crying.

I hate being ill and having to go to work.

What things do you hate, John?

Hatred is one of those emotions that takes too much work to sustain. Another emotion like that for me is being offended.

John Smith 16/10/23(Sun)06:37 No. 45681

This sheds light on my situation. Do drudge work and learn to enjoy it even if it is uninteresting.

John Smith 16/10/24(Mon)17:49 No. 45684

I think hate is too strong an emotion for this place. Too interesting.

You have always been a moderately productive member of society and have an average track record. How do you do it John? What's your secret?

John Smith 16/10/16(Sun)09:25 No. 45675

I must admit, John, I've always felt that my mediocrity has been a product of the tug-of-war between my above average intellect and my below average work ethic

John Smith 16/10/23(Sun)00:31 No. 45680

John, it's probably due to my high tolerance for doing drudgework. Most people find a lot of what I do boring as hell, but I have no qualms. It needs to be done, and I enjoy the solitude.
Plus, not being addicted to social media and not wanting/needing/getting any kind of smartphone to distract me from my chores helps as well.

Dear John

What is your favorite font?
Mine is probably SimSun, it's notable likeness with some of the old typewriter fonts makes writing articles with those more of a delightful experience.
Still it's somewhat thin appearance induces some kind of inner fear that no one will be able to read it.

Truly yours,

I'm partial to Brooklyn Kid. It's not a general use font, true, but it has both upper and lower case letters and I like the casual, urban look.

John Smith 16/10/20(Thu)18:24 No. 45678

Times New Roman is the font that enables me best to focus and if there is ever an option to change the font in a program then I naturally change it to this font.

Dear John

Let us write a story together.
I am pretty confident, that we can create something great together.

I shall start:
John shut down his computer and stared at the now black screen in front of him for what seemed ages.

He sat there, frozen, as the figure slowly descended from above him. The light it emitted felt like nothing he had seen before, it was unlike the Sun or the stars, it was unlike any electrical source of light, and nor did it feel like the light released from fire.

The figure kept moving towards him as the strange light grew brighter and brighter. It was almost surreal; graceful.

It was almost angelic.

John Smith 16/10/11(Tue)18:17 No. 45666

The fear that froze him to the floor began to thaw, he feared no more.
He felt no want to flee nor fight - for all that was, was soothing light.

John Smith 16/10/16(Sun)21:45 No. 45676


John slowly woke up out of the eerie daydream which just had so intensely consumed him.
As his mind recollected itself it became aware of the immediate surroundings. He found himself still sitting, facing his monitor, which was now lit.
He didn't know how long he'd been staring at the monitor, nor how long it had been back on. It shone brighter than usual, which his eyes found a bit discomforting.

"The update must've change the brightess settings again.." he muttered slightly peeved.
The computer had finally restarted after installing a forced security update that he'd avoided for as long as he could.
He looked away from the display. His eyes were mildly irritated from staring at the bright monitor for.. "how long have I been sitting here?" he wondered.
He shrugged off that thought and turned his head back to face the monitor.

The monitor displayed, as usual, the familiar landscape of his chaotic desktop - files and folders, programs and pictures, all jumbled like an unsorted 1000 piece puzzle.

He tried to focus on what he was going to do next.

Hey John, how's corporate? I got moved to monetary last week, so I couldn't swing by your office earlier. I just wanted to let you know that the quarterly report due date is getting pushed back to the 28th, so you have more time to get that done. Also, the microwave in the break room is out of order, so don't use it for more than about 30 seconds. sorry I couldn't tell you this in person, but you know how the boss is. I'll talk to you soon

Well John, it's almost that time of year again. Fall and winter. My favorite seasons. I live in the north and love the cold weather and of course holidays. How about you John? What do you enjoy about fall and winter?

I would love the summer weather John, but in Michigan we are bombarded with such heavy humidity no one really wants to go outside.

John Smith 16/09/11(Sun)06:45 No. 45615

A lot of things. I like cold weather. I like bare trees. I like a nip in the air. I like all the bugs being dead or asleep. I like snow. I like jackets, coats, hats, gloves and winterwear in general. I like sitting inside and looking out at a cold day or snow. I like how much brighter the sun seems. I like the sensation of wind blowing and cold air on my face. I like my beard suddenly becoming a lot more practical. I like how I seem to handle the cold much better than other people. And I like how I am not coated in sweat within a minute of leaving the house.

John Smith 16/10/07(Fri)12:48 No. 45660

Dear John,

Cold weather makes me alive again.

Not absurd heat to keep you inside behind closed curtains and shutters.

No sun burning enough to crisp your skin to red ugly suntanned colors.

The cold air that makes feel so vivid, instead of feeling like a melting piece of plastic behind a car windshield.

The moment of year when people wear decent, classy clothing, instead of trying to show the more flesh possible and horrid bathing suit like stuff.

The comfy feeling of a warm chocolate after some hours out in the icy wind.

Being able to sleep without a fan running all night.

I guess it's mostly from stepping on it on the street.

Hello John,

I must say that image you posted does not seem very good. Not bad, but not good. I'd recommend buying a toothbrush and using isotropic alcohol to wash the foot. alcohol evaporates fast, kills bacteria, and helps break down dead skin. I recommend a bottle in every house, a very dependable chemical

sincerely John

I never really thought about it before, but this is how I am too. But I also hate running out of time so much so that I set the focal clock in my room, my alarm clock, ahead 30 minutes at 4 am in the morning so that I'd forget and always feel late but be early. I'm afraid to change it back

John Smith 16/10/03(Mon)05:12 No. 45655

Dear John,
days used to go slowly for me as my youthful naivety had heralded in excitement for things to come. Though after years of enjoyment and later disappointment, I find that life seems to go at an average pace as I watch my weekly routine unfold time after time. After so many times of this cycle occurring, I find that little can take place to breakup the weekly tedium I have become accustomed to and as a result, the only thing that seems to present a distinct passage of time is nothing but the dates I’m required to fill out on forms through out the day.
Your acquaintance,
John Smith

Next week I'm going on a date with a girl way out of my league. She texted me, says that she thinks I'm pretty and so on, and I don't think this is some cruel joke she's playing on me (she seems a nice person) but I'm scared.
Answer me John, what should I do to not feel scared?

The term "first date" usually refers not to your absolute first date but the first with you and a particular other person. Someone who has dated 3 people has gone on 3 first dates, for instance.

With that in mind, I stand by what I said in >>45635 about how to more effortlessly be yourself. Since we live in the age of the Internet you can also research the particular woman that you plan to go on a date with. If nothing else that undercuts the power of your most common fear, the fear of the unknown.

>The term "first date" usually refers not to your absolute first
You should treat every date like a first date. If you're not bringing your AAA game every time how do expect to achieve your goal. Whether it be sex, marriage or kids, if you slack of early you could fall short and end up with nothing but wasted effort.

John Smith 16/09/20(Tue)19:53 No. 45640

I disagree John.

Surely, for the first date you have to make a good impression; and maybe for the next couple of dates after you should be the best "you" that you can be, but at some point--if the relationship is something you intend to pursue long-term--you'll have to confront her with your real self. I'm not saying to do it all at once, but she's going to have to see you for the person you are most comfortable being--faults, uninteresting hobbies, and ugliness included.
