I think some of my depression in life is now affecting my gym performance. Yesterday, I tried 315 on the bench, even though I didn't really feel it. Sure enough, I got it off the bar, down to about 4 inches above my chest, and almsot spazzed as my right arm couldn't hold the weight. Luckily I got it off to the bottom rack of the bench, circumventing a decapitation. I was not pleased at all, and the rest of the workout suffered further... everything was lower numbers, less reps, and it upset me. I pushed twice as hard as I normally would just to get through my workout, and all I could think was I am a loser.

D is not pleased.

What the hell is your problem?
Just remember you asked.

Short version, my dad's slowly dying from literally body failure, and 8 years of working for him has made me sort of....not believe in my own skill set. Work's been tight lately, only small jobs here and there, and a lot of bullshit in between. Money's lacking due to assholes delaying checks. A personal problem that's been on and off for a while has once again struck me and is worse this time than it's been in years and I really don't need to go to a doctor and be told something drastic that's gonna cost money or worse keep me on the injured list for the next few months.

The big kick is my dad's shoulder has been really acting up lately. He got a shot of cortizone the other day with almost no effect, and he's almost constantly in pain. It's really throwing me off my game. I always stay up late to make sure he doesn't need anything, which results in me constantly being cranky from lack of sleep. I also am getting stuck being essentially a housemaid, havinv to clean up after him constantly now, and being nervous when I go out in case he's in need of something or he's slips and gets hurt...I lost my kom a few years back, don't really wanna lose my old man just yet.

It boils down to...
I wanna go off on my own and do my own thing, but am afraid of what's gonna happen to my dad and my sisters, who still rely heavily on "Bank of Daddy" which is funded by my backside.

I wanna stay here still and try to keep daddy dearest comfortable and make his day to day dealings easier, but that results in a literal dead end in however many years he may have left, as I'll be left with whatever debts (monetary and job related) he has left, and nothing to show for it. I'm 27 years old, I should be fucking deciding about starting my own family soon, not playing hospis at home...however it's my dad, my only remaining parent.

Even typing this is depressing the shit out of me, feels like a fucking cow sitting on my chest. I don't even get angry about it anymore, which used to help me deal with the stress of it, now I'm just always upset about it.

It's real simple, this guy wants to tell the government to fuck off by giving idiots abroad a way to create a death-dealing device that can go anywhere. Even better is anyone actually giving this guy some form of press coverage to further spread his idea and concept.

Congrats man, you've got the new terrorist weapon of choice, AND it's eco-friendly.

The only reason the concept of pissing your life away drinking and fucking doesn't sound desireable is because you know you can't support said lifestyle. If you were a multimillionaire (or a hippie bum), you'd probably have a very different outlook on life to begin with, and much less concern regarding things like responsibility, the driving force behind us not simply catering to our own primal desires all the time.

To be fair though, I do not like drinking much, myself.

Desire, determination, and comfy footwear.

Bear in mind I do not run, but I use a similar logic for when I bike at the gym.

The name Vanillaware meant nothing to me until Dragon's Crown was really getting slammed.

What a shame.
Not really, having seen Odin Sphere as one of their other big games, I see why I don't recall the name. Wasn'5 a fan.

Bad press is still press. The name Vanillaware meant nothing to me until Dragon's Crown was really getting slammed. Granted, it's only being covered in circles that are focused on by people who knew of it already, but it oughta provoke more people into playing that would have simply passed it over as a Dungeons amd Dragons game "or sum shiet".

Don't care what other morons have to say about it anymore. I wanna play this game.

So I did some lifting today, shoulder stuff. I haven't eaten today, and I only got 4 hours of sleep and had taken down a show prior to my gym visit. I was fairly beat by the time I got to the gym, and I feel my performance suffered for it. Only pressed 75lb dumbells, which isn't terrible but not my best by a longshot. Also fudged upright rows entirely, only doing 2 sets and the second set at 155 lbs and only 6 reps. My machine raises weren't terrible, forward and reverse at 30lbs for 2 sets and 40lbs 2 sets. Ended on shrugs, which I was really upset by. 270 lbs, followed by 330, then 385. Each set was ridiculously hard for no reason, it really saddened me. I finally tried for 405, which took everything I had to pick up...I could usually lift it with some effort on a regular day. The only real shiner for the trip was the 6.2 mile bike run I pulled off. 22 minutes, 250+ calories burned, and I wasn't even that winded. So now I gotta keep doing that I guess.

Hoping to go check out Iron Man 3 tomorrow night, but it seems unlikely. I look forward to it, even though I read the plot online (non-spoilers, extra scene at the end sounds funny).

Just watched Pain and Gain. Was pretty good, albeit long. It was definitely a lot darker than commercials play it out to be. Mark Wahlberg plays a meathead incredibly well, and the Rock is amazing in it. The acting was very well done, and the entire flick was just very solid. Definitely a good bring your buddy flick.
