    Would really let me feel better if those that are 20 and over gave a shout out.


    Don't want to feel like everyone here is a teenager.

    From the outside looking in, I'm sure that at first I appear to be a completely normal individual. Maybe this is why i have more fun sometimes and generally enjoy talking to strangers, and why no relationships I have generally last very long. I wonder if anyone here has similar experiences or feels the same.
    Seems that a lot of the threads I read are things that I can relate to but maybe not as badly.

    Maybe i need to talk things over with people my own age. Forgot to mention I'm 22.

    While watching Fight Club yesterday i sarted to feel like someone at those groups who's there as a tourist. Am i really a tourist here? I'm scared of bridges and traintracks for a reason. Not a normal one. But I have never had the experiences of any self-harm, though i have joked about it innappropriately. But may be i joke about tons of stuff innappropriately.

    i'm ranting. i'll stop. I'm awaiting responses.

    So many memories...

    .. alternative music movement was born and then died out.. electronic music events in Baltimore - DC died out a few years later after the Rave Act was passed.. so many friends, people, months so full of experiences that they seemed liked years... leaving school, old friends moving away, employment, college, living on our own...

    The year 2000 was the best and worst year of my life, the extreme highs, the crushing lows, it felt like 5 years all rolled into one. Life and culture hasn't been the same since then.. there's too much commercialism, propaganda, rhetoric.. feels like our society's soul is dying a slow agonizing death, enthusiasm and imagination become jadedness and paranoia. The 00s are almost non-existent to me, as if none of this ever happened. It's almost as if I'll wake up one summer morning and be 16 yrs. old again, heading down to Union Station to meet up with an old friend, and we'll have the whole day ahead of us to walk around the district and laugh at our childhood memories.

    Anyway.. yeah, I used to think I would never grow up. Then eventually I found myself on my own, just struggling to survive and maintain some kind of sanity in a paper-thin existence with strange people and random events that come and go without even leaving feather light traces on my emotion or memory.

    Nice to meet you all. maybe there should be more groups that we could join (ie one for teens, one for 20s, etc. and then for different issues too). Not to segregate. just feels like reading posts of much younger people tends to make me feel worse rather than better.

    like my rant? innappropriate place for sure. Had to get it out nonetheless.

    Thanks for all the responses
