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.

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.

Hello John, it's John again.

I got my first job since the original letter, but I lost it last month. I also got a second job back in April but quit it in June because they were only giving me one shift a week. Now I feel isolated, I lost contact with the little people I had left when writing the original letter, and the "friends" I made at these other jobs won't even respond to texts. I feel truly alone nowadays. I miss my friends. I can't even motivate myself to get out of bed most days. I've run out of money and can't find another job, soon I fear I will run out of a will to live as well. I would say I'm depressed, but if I acknowledged it, I would have no way to fix it. So I've just been burying it down.

Life hurts.

Hrllo John,

What makes you say that acknowledging depression would make it impossible to fix? A lot of Johns have the opinion that realizing you havr a problem is the first step towards overcoming it.

Safe travels,

John Smith 18/09/04(Tue)11:57 No. 46677

I agree with this sentiment. I've lived through depression and I can tell you it's not something I wish upon anyone. Acknowledging your problem is indeed the first step to recovery. Please, John, share your thoughts with us. Writing them out anonymously might help more than you think.
