If I'm not motivated a slighest, I rest. If I have any glimpse of motivation rising, I use it and try to feel happy about the process and the result. It's a dopaminal thing anyway. Like when you eat too much sugar you stop feel the sweet taste so good. Same happens with too much easy satisfaction, normal sources like getting things done don't kick in.

what's the most trouble you've or someone you know'd ever gotten into in school and what for?

I had a lot of anger issues and wasn't doing so good, so basically I said something I don't remember saying but it was still enough to concern """someone""" that knew me. And so one day two police men searched me outside of the classroom, cuffed me, and next thing I know I'm at the station. Things were SUPPOSE to get much worse from there. It all haunts me still, school life was not very good around that time. I made many mistakes but didn't have any good friends and nobody knew what was going on. It's been a while sharing this so I guess it wouldn't hurt to.

I hope I am not ruining the thread by deviating from the OP and continuing the theme of school. Looking back objectively at my time in American public school it's no exaggeration that it's akin to prison. Smaller or anecdotal things not brought up was an administration exaggerating referrals, drawing any sort of weapon or warfare would get you trouble, talking too loud in a lunchroom full of loud kids would get you in trouble, can't wander the halls without permission, the works. I have two stories from elementary that I never put much thought in until recently on how bizarre it was.

One time when the bell rang to go home I decided to use a different hallway to exit the building and a teacher insufferably asked me why I went to a hallway outside of my grade to leave the building but that and the older kids intimidated me so I decided to go back and use my staircase. That teacher saw me and was befuddled that I went back and made me sit by her until my ride came and I accepted it because I was a wimp.

When game day came for the semester (the last hour of a school day set aside for kids who met their reading quota) I was goofing and joking around as always, and my teacher decided to revoke my privilege to attend and this being the one time I was ever going to play Pokemon with my friends I started crying and pressed hard on my arm with a pencil and started dragging hard ripping the skin which left scars for years. When my parents saw them and I told them I did it they grounded me, and started screaming at me threatening to put me on pills which they did indeed do later that year as a contributing factor now that I piece this together.

I don't condone and support my response and I'd consider anyone else to do it at my age stupid or at least definitely immature too but a kid got severely punished and exempt from something they earned by a glorified daycare attendant who already punishes them for petty misdemeanors and you except them not to get mad and upset? On top of parents that take the school's side most of them and only softly reprimand you for causing trouble. I'm having trouble giving sympathy to myself after years of self-betterment and shame for the person I was, and I think I've been gaslighted by this system or that is a gaslight by myself and I shouldn't be hung up on my experience as I'm past it and came out strong.

I used to think anyone who shot up a school was a tunnel-visioned loser who couldn't see the bigger picture of life or get over the past but I understand now why it happens seeing how bad it was for others and myself, and don't blame someone who lacks the mental capacity to do otherwise. Someone who gets chastised at home and school, doped up on legal meth, up against teachers and students, having this be their entire life, I don't blame them for snapping and in fact seems like the natural even normal thing to do.

Excuse my rant.

>drawing any sort of weapon or warfare would get you trouble
I used to doodle war scenes and stuff and was always afraid my teachers would see them and get me in trouble. I also remember goofing around with a friend acting cowboys at the end of recess, and we were duly informed by one of our recess babysitters that the school had a zero-tolerance policy on guns. She wasn't that obnoxious about it, but it was still a load of crap.
>talking too loud in a lunchroom full of loud kids would get you in trouble
My elementary school's lunchroom had a big traffic light that reacted to noise. While we wouldn't individually get into trouble, they'd have someone in there to try and quiet things down when the light turned red. I never really understood what the point was and always thought it was stupid, even though I wasn't a loud kid.
>One time when the bell rang to go home I decided to use a different hallway to exit the building and a teacher insufferably asked me why I went to a hallway outside of my grade to leave the building but that and the older kids intimidated me so I decided to go back and use my staircase. That teacher saw me and was befuddled that I went back and made me sit by her until my ride came and I accepted it because I was a wimp.
I remember getting chastised by a teacher for exiting through a side door when school was over so I could get outside faster. No reason was given either. Teachers seem to love enforcing petty rules for no real reason.

Is paying people to be your friend a viable strategy for forming powerful long term friendships?

 No.2686

It depends… How much are you offering?

 No.2687

I never thought about that

 No.2689

No, because they wouldn’t be your friend instead that would be considered Prostitution without the sex part.

 No.2695

I think you should reevaluate your strategy. Paying people to pretend being your friends will only keep them until the money stops flowing, paying people to learn how to make friends gives you a skill however that can grow long term friendships.

 No.2707

It depends what you're capable of offering. All relationships are transactional.

Should I adopt a cat? Is it difficult to take care of a cat?

 No.939

Whether it is difficult depends on you. The only real maintenance for a cat is emptying of the litter and refilling of the food and water. But some of them have weird personalities and can become high maintenance if they develop a habit of scratching furniture or knocking things off of surfaces. Also, most cats act up in response to changes in routine. So, if you move a lot or if your work schedule is erratic, the cat my start pooping on the floor in protest.

Cats domesticated themselves so they won't listen to you like a dog would so if you want attachment with one you have pamper it when young and show that you're it's primary caregiver. I'd have a cat myself but I don't want toxoplasmosis.

I want to watch movies with you, /kind/! To do this we must first establish when, where, and what we will be streaming.
>When?
8PM EST
>Where?
I want it to be hosted at https://cytu.be/r/kindstream since there is no need for watchers to make an account to participate on cytube. This venue may be subject to change.

Hey /kind/, me again. Do you all like to drive? What's your favorite car that you've driven? What's your dream car?
Personally, driving is my favorite activity. My favorite car is the Nissan 370z. I've been driving them since I started learning to drive. They're really smooth and easy to drive. My dream car is a Sileighty. I think they look really cool, and there's just something cool about having a mash up of two cars.

I STILL don't have a car. I lost my job and I was going to maybe have enough money for a car, but instead I'm broke now. At this rate it seems like I'll never catch a break.

I still want a 300zx.

It's not a big rush, especially for now. The prices on used cars are much higher than they were before covid became such a huge deal. You definitely have time to get things in order.
The z32's bother me because of their weird headlights. The z31's are pretty nice looking though.

Yeah, I'm in limbo right now and I have more important things to attend to. School and finding a job, so it'll have to wait. They're a bit hard to find for me, since I'd like a model with both the digital dashboard cluster (pic related), in addition to the manual transmission.

I'm actually thinking of getting an econobox in the meantime. Well, not now anyway, since I'm broke, but before I get a 300zx since then I wouldn't have to worry so much about finding the right one, and repairs. If I were to get myself a new part time job or internship, I'd be thinking of an old Accord.

I felt weird about z32 headlights too, haha. They're cool cars but something about it is just off. I think they would have looked better with pop-up lights, but that's just me.

Old cars are really comfy. My first car was a '95 SAAB 9000. I fucked it up a bit after a few months and it's never been the same. Slowly but surely I'm fixing it though. Not much left to do, but money's a bit tight right now.
Manuals are awesome, but I don't know how to drive one. I haven't had access to one to learn. I want to get my hands on a cheap little civic with 200k miles that I won't be scared to ruin.

 No.2520

I tend to drink whiskey myself and the odd vodka, beer doesn't really do anything for me. As for why it's usually because of boredom as I was drinking everyday for 3 months when my country went into lockdown and I wasn't working. I haven't drank since then until last night since I've got a couple of days off work.

The worst was when I drank for a year straight because of heartbreak but I was working as well. I'd sometimes work drunk but because of my personality nobody noticed anything different. I won't drink if I'm in work the next day anymore now and I've since recovered.

 No.2521

I quit drinking but I used to drink whatever, with a preference for rum, red wine, and tequila.
