Reminder to cook a hot breakfast in the morning. It's not too expensive, buying bulk bacon, eggs, & sausage is good because you can piece freeze the meat so little to none goes to waste, as well as giving you insentive to wake up early to a hot breakfast. Modern cereals are full of processed sugars and HFCS, not to mention all the soy in them.
>but i dont have time to cook breakfast
Wake up earlier, if you already wake up as early as you can, then use multiple pans and cook multiple things at the same time
>good idea! I'm gonna go down to the shop and buy some pancake shake and waffle batte-
BAD! Wayyy too much processed shit in those, if you're gonna make them for breakfast (i personally never got the appeal but each to their own) you should once again make a big batch of batter and piece freeze it.

I admit that I'm too weak for most of the challenges on their site's screenshots. For instance, there was something about diving a distance underwater and pulling a 10-pound weight back up; my breathing habits while diving have always been bad and I've relied on holding my nostrils shut just to pull off diving underwater without my nostrils flooding like the basic bitch I am. I've tried overcoming that habit, especially this past summer, but I still can't submerge myself headfirst without nearly choking through the nostrils, let alone opening my eyes and seeing with these godawful eyes of mine. I think that as nice as this site is, it'll take a lot of work for me just to reach baseline 'strenuousness.'

I'll see about joining after I've lost another 15-25 pounds. This site does look great, I just think I'm too much of a soyboy to really get anything out of it. Plus I'd probably manage to fail that 12-week bootcamp.

How to relax?
I have the hunch that I really need relaxation.

Everything I do has something like a goal.
More sports, more reading, more learning, cook better food, eat slower for digestion, go for a walk because you need some daily excercise and you did sports yesterday and need some rest.
More better faster more and even relaxation is like something I have to do to a certain extend in a certain amount of time.
Even when I do something like watch a movie I study acting, writing, culture…

I am pretty sure that I am so stressed that I don't get anything done.

I think the trick is to get some idle games, like wrestling game ISOs and 4x games. Then you can have the game's AI play matches against itself, the whole thing captured and recorded easily. While that's happening, you can do whatever you want. Read, watch anime, exercise, anything.

It's what I do, but I think I need more idle games. So far, I'm just doing Civ V (torrented) and WWE 2k18 (torrented)

>tfw stressed out about being stressed out

I think I figured something out.
I am stressed. Really fucking stressed.

I am stressed about not having an olypic medal and a nobel prize and humanity and myself and everything else and the very opposite of these things.

I am an illiterate fuck for not speaking 5 languages and not having 5 DoXs and being better build than Adonis. I am stressed out about me and all the others, about how things are and how things could be and how things shouldn't be and my perception of this and the meaning of thruth and every other fucking thing you could think of.
I have to do more in less time under harder cirmumstances than everybody else and if I get second place I get last place.
I gotta get burn-out and still deliver at least twice as much as the nr. 1 not only in the current time but in the entirety of human existance.

I can't sleep because of all the stress and when I fall asleepp it is through exhaustion which is a sign of weakness.

The only thigs that bring me solice are long baths and ponies but even then my mind wanders or I gotta study everything for the sake of story-telling or drawing or music or philosophy or anything else.

I had a thought today. I always thnk that it is a shame that we have to deal with the way things are insteat of what things could be like and I started to apply that thought to myself.
Normally I come here to try to become a somewhat decent human being, which means going from the bottom to the mid.
Today I had the very rare thought that I acutally might be not (always) as bad as I think.

Despite being overweigt I got an acceptablt body with an very good imune system and strenght.
Despite being a retard my IQ is his enough to get a masters degree.
Despite being socially inept I managed to make some good friends and get girls interested and become somewhat alpha in certain groups and even managed to shift some votes.
I can into arts and science and philosophy and crafts and IT and office and…

I am human waste but despite that I see the possibiblity to get something done.
What I am asking is how to unleash your potential?

14401 No.1134

>What I am asking is how to unleash your potential?
That is a good question, and I am first to admit I don't think I know the answer. I know what I would have liked to have done. But I am not sure if it would have been the right way to go either. So take what I write with a good healthy dose of skepticism. Also sorry for rant.

I don't think unleashing your full potential always is necessary. I think it is more important to be content (or happy if you are lucky) with life.

Lets say you are going to have kids. The most important I think is that you have time for them after work. Don't chase after a job that will stress you out, or wear you out. Try to find something that you never have to bring home. And I think most importantly that it is a bit varied so you don't do the same thing day in and day out, and that it is work that you can say is done and complete at one point. As an example a house is complete at one point, a web-server will always need monitoring updates ad infinitum.
Sure a house needs maintenance but it is varied maintenance and seldom time critical (sure roof can become leak, but nothing a tarp or bucket can't temporary fix and give you some extra time). A web-server that is compromised needs to be fixed ASAP and you can't leave until it is fixed. But as a house-builder you will not get calls asking why the house needs a new layer of paint after 10 years. You might get a call on a web-server on why twitter feed don't show up anymore because twitter chose to change their API a year later.

Sure hard work and late nights building your own business can pay of in the long run and grant you much more that if you choose to just be a worker raising your kids. So it is also something to keep in mind. Lots of work in start for potential big gain or an steady pace to retirement.

Been away for a while, really glad to see people in my thread.
Great advice here.
Ill just give some of my opinions on the things discussed to help resurrect the site.
Find what works for you. I rock shitty boots issued from basic training or my running shoes kek. Most guys hate the boots but they work for me and if im not going super far then I might just go with sneakers. In the past I would train my feet to be barefoot on runs and short hikes. Im gonna get back to doing this more. Tough feet are a really good asset, just gotta keep good footwear for cold or hot weather and sharp things or bugs. You can make your feet as tough as shoes.


Like previously stated many places do not allow fires. Ive been using a Coleman stove my brother got me for Christmas for when I cant make a fire. I love that thing. My father uses a military issue stove from the 70s still with no problems. Good equipment can last you forever. Another reason to have a stove is for when you are unable to start a fire due to environment and not just regulations. I learned this the hard way by going up a mountain under the rain the whole day. It was too damp to start a fire and got cold really fast. Thank god I had a tent and sleeping bag.


I carry the little purification tablet you can buy at most cmaping stores in America. Idoine crystals are good to use too, not sure if they are sold as much anymore. I usually boil my water and purify it and I live in an area with pristine streams. If it is coming straight out of the mountain than I'll usually drink it as is.

I've been wanting to learn how to draw for a long time, but have never gotten around to it because I simply do not know where to start. On a scale of 1-10 my skill level is basically a 1. I can draw basic shapes, that is about it. I don't have any hobbies right now other than gaming and working out, and I would like to pick something else up.

I would preferably like to learn how to draw on a computer, most of the really nice art I see seems to be done that way now a days. As I stated earlier, my skill level is basically 1. I can draw basic circles and have used MS paint a few times, and have never touch any editing programs.

I have been wanting to do this for forever, but have been held back because I just have no idea how to start, or what even I should be doing for practice. Right now would be a great time for me to do this because I am currently somewhat incapacitated with some medical issues. Any tips/resources would be greatly appreciated.

Learning how to draw anything is more important than learning how to draw one thing.
His guide is fine. Also anything worth having is worth working for. Art isn't just something you can shit out. There is a natural talent for it yes, but even the most gifted person will have to study at some point in their life.
For me, 2D art was always a pain in the ass. 3D art was always fun, even when I was shit at it. If learning sounds like a drag to you, maybe art isn't for you.
Touchscreens are expensive, anon. A cheap 80 dollar tablet can save you from buying paper/pens/etc, but it's a different feel from a screen/paper. You won't be able to see where you hand is in relation to what you're drawing. On the other hand, you don't have your hand blocking the screen.
If you get good at one, learning the other shouldn't be that hard though.
Even if you don't draw every day, try to read up or think about techniques for the next time you end up drawing. (This might not really apply to 2D, but it works for me with 3D)

In the end, if you have fun with drawing, nothing will stop you from doing it, just make sure you don't end up halting your own progress by never experimenting.

Couldn't be bothered to find it, but I have an image somewhere on this computer where an artist actually got WORSE over a period of 6 years.

7808c No.1078

The very first word of advice I can give you is too just keep drawing! Practice is the key.
Don't stop; just keep trying and experimenting over and over, regardless of how shitty you may be. Try new things, and try them dozens of times. Experiment with concepts. Attempt to copy styles you admire once you get a hang of the basics.
Even little thumb sketches are progress. Make a habit out of doodling for fun. Carry a sketchbook as a hobby if you prefer. If you practice any skill enough times, you're bound to get half-decent at it.
And don't ever get discouraged just because you're bad at it. If you suck, that just means you're not practicing enough. Don't quit because your first thought after scribbling for 10 mintues is 'I'm not any good at this'.

Since I've lived in southern US my whole life, I'm no stranger to sunburn. Usually I just leave it be and deal with it but if it's bothering you, put some lotion on it. Not much else to tell you than just after awhile in the hot blazing sun, your body will adjust to it in time.

Aloe Vera is good for taking away some of the pain as well as make it heal a bit quicker. Lotion should work too. Should be at any Walgreens or a similar drugstore.

A bad sunburn in my mind is a 2nd degree burn with blisters. If you have them, don't use any creams as they can hinder the healing process.

Frontiersmen survive at all costs. They battle blistering heat and scathing blizzards. They conquer mountains and bogs. They not only survive, but thrive in all manner of the toughest conditions mother nature throws his way. This is the ideal body type we should strive for.

Mass bulk for the sake of photos is merely another case study in societal decay and decadence. Fitness is for a greater purpose. We are not made for fitness; fitness is made for us. We must learn to master ourselves for the pursuit of higher goals.

Smoking tobacco should be banned worldwide. It's a jewish psyop pushed on white people and their kids using media and TV.

I can't do it. Caring about MLP is suffering. Hasbro's going to keep on making it worse. People are waking up and seeing through the bullshit but nobody's doing anything about it. Nobody's willing to dox feminist doxers and report leftist criminals to the police. I've got a list of ideas to make "For Fun" because I have no job or life because my country is fucked and pozzed and already dead, and I can't bring myself to actually make any of it. I'm 25 years old and I feel like giving up on life. I held on and kept fighting and it never got better. I… never got better. I'm still just a beaten-down child waiting for his parents to burst in and tell him what to do.

most women like that just need a good rodgering and a man to set them straight like their father should have. Find one that's decently attractive and as unused as possible, seduce her, take charge and become the authority figure in her life. Women need to be trained to be submissive like an animal, women don't really have political opinions they just use emotional reasoning and group awareness to decide what it is they're expected to believe and they believe that, if you're dominant and strict you can decide for her what that is.

Understood, I'll be on the lookout for a good one i can make better.

By the way, I feel good. I saw a self-unhelp video and stopped doing the dumb shit it told me to do. I stopped napping, sunbathed in my bedroom while gaming(leg still injured) and started doing creative things I care about and like doing.

as long as she's not fat or ugly you should be fine, women don't really have political opinions they're just overly sensitive to groupthink. Introduce her to your friends and provide for her, put your foot down if she believes in any bullshit.

looks like they let a bunch of children make a cartoon about their OCs, looks quite gay and terrible. if this is the future of MLP this franchise well and truly fucked. Good Riddance.
