Hello John,

It has been a long time since I have made my way around these parts. I am not doing very well. Today I folded at least one hundred pieces of paper. It is raining.

Hello John,


Thank you for your concern, I'm doing well. I hope you are feeling fine also.
The weather is nice. It just snowed a few days ago, but it's warm enough to walk outside without freezing. Spring will be coming soon.
What's your favorite season?

-John

I really love soda. I can't get enough it.

Do you like soft drinks?

The whole San Pellegrino range is enjoyable, mostly for the flavors but also a bit for that feeling of "well at least it isn't the most sugary drink I could be having right now so that's almost like being healthy."

If you get your hands on chinotto, that one's worth a try. The bitter orange flavor won't be everyone's thing, but it'w worth trying for the unique taste alone.

I do love me some soda. It's something i cant get enough of but is something that needs limiting. Too much of many things is bad for you.

Hello John, I've recently been enjoying the mixed drink or cocktail, if you prefer, know as the "White Russian. I find it's creamy and smooth texture to be rather pleasing and quite the boon after a hard days work.
The beverage is mildly exotic but not at all displeasing; perfect for sharing with polite company after a rich dinner.
What beverages or mixed drinks do you enjoy at the end of each day?

Yours in curiosity,
John.

John Smith 18/03/08(Thu)00:55 No. 46448

Greetings, John.

I used to enjoy a straight Scotch quite regularly in the evenings. At one point I conjured up a cocktail of Scotch, Amaretto, dark chocolate sauce and milk, which I found to be to my liking.

I have since greatly reduced my intake of alcoholic beverages, limiting myself to meager amounts in social settings. This has been mostly due to me choosing marijuana over alcohol as my "glass of wine in the evening", if you will, as well as recognising the not-so-jolly scenarios the consumption of alcohol often leads to. Having said that, tonight I have indulged in some Grappa Chardonnay, a bottle of which I had kept around since June of the previous year. This very unusual minor carousal of mine owes to a notoriously disappointing day, but I shall spare you the details, John, as I am sure you have your own worries to tend to.

I must say, however, I've always found the bottle of Ketel One Vodka rather pleasing to look at.

Yours truthfully,
John

Lately I have found myself going for walks late at night, pondering, gazing at the universe, and all I wish to have is someone to experience it with me. Yet it seems as if none of my friends are night owls. I don't like being alone this much. Any similar experiences, John?


>>
John Smith 18/03/06(Tue)20:37 No. 46447

I find it hard to imagine contemplating the majesty of the universe with friends. I like having friends, and I like looking at the night sky while walking quiet sidewalks and trails. Where it trips me up is trying to do both at the same time. The time I spend appreciating the company of my friends is time I don't get to take in the night atmosphere, and time I spend soaking up the universe is time I'm not spending paying attention to my friends.

I sincerely hope to be proven wrong about this one day by experiencing a late night walk with friends.

What is your worst irrational fear, John?

Mine is the fear of complete isolation. Quite odd considering I'm an introvert.

Yours Truly,
John

Dear Johnny,

I consider myself lucky to have none, though I do have fears that are rational. I will fear things such as carcrashes and my light chest pains, though ultimately I only fear bigger than life sorts of things, maybe not actually in the scope of rationality. The concept of space for example is terrifying but beautiful to me, I don't want to die to a black hole but I do want to see it before I die as it is theorized you wouldn't just die immediately but you would see a lightshow before it finally sucked all the oxygen from earth where then I would die. Things such as a pulsing star potentially emitting a ray so strong it obliterates the earth does not scare me as that would be instant though a meteor I would probably spend inside maybe even on here away from some madness. Death itself does not scare me but the concept that I wouldn't feel like I have seen everything I should have before dying does, like I was put here to appreciate everything and squandered that.

John Smith 18/02/28(Wed)22:08 No. 46441

Dear John,

An irrational fear of mine has always been dying while my bladder is full of urine. Whenever I feel threatened or in danger, I head to the bathroom because I don't want that aforementioned scenario to happen. However, I'm afflicted with paruresis. This, ironically, makes it physically impossible for me to urinate anywhere but in the solitary comfort of my home.

Kind regards
John

Hello John.

Lately I've been bored with lots of things. All the other chans are either dead or so scandalous that I can no longer enjoy them. All of the discord groups I've joined to pass time as well have also gone down the drain. I've tried getting into things like weightlifting, art, music, and literature, but without people to discuss these topics with, they aren't worthwhile in my opinion. If you could direct me to a place with active people to discuss these hobbies with, please do.

Sincerely,
John.

John Smith 18/02/19(Mon)08:05 No. 46436

Weightlifting, obviously you should join a gym. Hanging out there long enough should pay off in the form of someone contacting you. Literature, go to Barnes n Nobles and order a coffee and read an important book. People talk a lot less here than other places but you should still have a chance at meeting someone.

Art and music, go to a local dive bar's next show. Should be some cool kids there if you like/find punk music to go see.

All of these might not even demand that you start the conversation so they're pretty good options. Sit at the bar in the bar. Stand by the window in the gym. Hump one of the dancers at the show. Point to the food at BnN and ask how it is.

On the internet though, I'm not sure we're even allowed to talk anymore. Everyone just uses Facebook, and no one uses it to have a conversation. I hear snapchat is big, but all I've seen from it is people making dumb faces.

With all due respect, John and John, there are in fact plenty of places to talk. You observe that big websites like Facebook and Snapchat monopolize people's interactions at the expense of the variety of smaller platforms out there, yet at the same time, the there's a kernel of truth to the fairytale idea that smaller sites only die when you stop believing in them. I hope I'm not too presumptuous to believe that I'm not the only John who might want to listen to your opinions on some of these topics.

Good evening John.
I wanted to share a recurring dream, hoping you could make sense of it.
Although it slightly varies every time, I am a hundred percent sure, that I only imagining having this dream in regular, although distant intervals.

It starts with me being chased on some kind of vehicle, once I remember it being on a bike, last night it was in a car.
This chase partakes in the street and surrounding where i grew up most of my life. The instance in pursuit with me is never visible, or lets say recognizable.
The transition to the second part is unclear, however I end up standing next to a small lake, standing on green grass. Just next to the shore is a huge metal boxed shape structure. Recalling it from my mind, it is about as high as a three story building and very long, id say about a hundred meters. There are rocks in the water, so I can jump from one to the other, until I reach the object. There is an opening which I enter. Usually as soon as this happens, the urge and tense feeling from the pursuit subsides and I am calm and the joy of adventure starts arising.
Inside there is water, up to my ankles, but above there are many smaller metal boxes, rather narrow bridges, seemingly randomly placed. Usually I just dream of exploring all the rooms and places.
Last night I dreamed of holding my cat in my arms when "arriving" at the shore of the lake. It seemed very stressed, as he would be outside, just like me, even after entering the structure. I put it the cat down after climbing some stairs. For some reason I then could not move anymore, the cat walked off. I was just standing there for what seemed an eternity, I was able to see rust forming on the metal hull. Nothing ever happened. The cat did not return. Eternal silence until I woke up.

The only other recurring dream I know I have is me standing in the flat of my grandparents, which have died in the meantime. I look out of the window and see a person looking at me which a face that makes me instantly wake up. I can never actually see the face long enough to remember its details.

Can you help me interpret this? If not feel free to share your dreams, John.

I have recurring dreams as well John. But usually only on evenings when I take an early nap. I'm usually somewhere that I have no recollection of being, and usually a large house. There will be people who know me, but I have no idea who they are, as I haven't seen nor met them irl. They don't seem to mind me, as it appears I am living or at least staying with them, and the floors are usually wet. When I get ready to go out, I cannot find nor remember where my car is, and I seem to panic a bit-then it's time to wake up. How I see people I've never seen before, and stay in a place I've never seen nor been before, but feels like home, I don't know.

At least it's not the stuck in school in my underwear and can't remember my locker combination dream.

I always have weird dreams taking naps during the day. Also lucid sometimes.
The wet floors are interesting.

John, I have no idea what the wet floors mean, but it seems like it's just water and needs to be mopped up. There's never any pools or shower/baths involved either. I have no fear of water either, so this is a mystery to me as much as anything.
One more thing though about my dreams-they always happen during the 8 o'clock hour. If an evening nap, they'll wake me up when they finish. When I was able to sleep until 9 in the morning (can't anymore due to work), they hit in the 8 am hour as well. So my rem cycle does not hit during the middle of sleep/naps, usually toward the end. Go figure.

I just realized I forgot to refill my phone and went the past 3 days without noticing. The alarm clock functioned though and I use it mostly for that.


>>
John Smith 18/02/02(Fri)12:50 No. 46418

The alarm application on my phone requires one to specify the day for which the alarm is to be set. Failure to specify it leads to it assuming that the alarm is for 6 days in the future. This... feature has put me in unfortunate situations, especially when I am too tired to remember to set the day.

Do you set your alarms for 6 days in the future, John?

I apologize for making you wait on my reply John. My phone is old, actually a cheap flip phone, so I have never had to deal with any sort of "app". This actually gives me a slight feeling of satisfaction.
People can text me all they want, I cannot read them as the screen has been cracked for the past 5 years. More satisfaction.
I can only set the alarm to go off 5 times, so this gets set each night when I go to bed. I don't even know if I will be around 6 days in the future John. I hope so though, as I do have a vacation next month.
