Well, hey

So I just found out about this website through a friend and I thought it was a good idea.
I like the concept of basically having a personal journal that can be scrutinized by people you may or may not know. I also like having a place where I can get my thoughts out to people who don't know the individuals I might be complaining about (because we all have people we need to bitch about, don't we?). Or something along those lines; stuff you can't really tell your parents or your siblings or maybe even your close friends but you need to get out there. A personal mental flush is always good.
I don't really know what else to put. I feel like this website would be where I talk all about myself and my opinions, but I still feel hesitant. I have this instinct that people generally don't care about what other people have to say. We're all out for ourselves. Which raises the question: Why did I join this website in the first place?
Fuck it, I'll get used to talking about myself soon. It's just that I hate the people that only talk about themselves. But that's what this whole website is about, isn't it?

Oh yeah, one last thing: I tend to over-think stuff. I guess that's evident.

So a lot of stuff has happened recently that I'd say is worth mentioning.

Yesterday, I bought all the parts I'm going to need to build my own gaming PC. It's nothing amazing, but hey, it'll sure as hell beat the laptop I've been using for a year. I had to put every single setting down to its lowest, run it in windowed mode, and it would still barely run beyond 30 frames per second. And that's with games like Team Fortress 2.

On Monday, I went with my mom and dad to Lake Tahoe for a couple of days of hiking, exploration and relaxation. Most people think family trips suck, but not me. Maybe it's the fact that I don't really have any reason to hate my parents; maybe it's because they are supportive and caring; maybe it's because they just helped me pay for the PC I was talking about; maybe it's because they let me drink beer with them. It's probably the last one. Anyways, I had some of the most memorable experiences of my young adult life in the last 5 days, and I can pretty much thank my parents for all of it. Lake Tahoe is a beautiful, astounding, and wonderful place. I strongly suggest everyone goes before they get too old or the whole place is filled in.

I saw a psychologist on Thursday to reevaluate some stuff about my ADHD, and to address my almost nightly bouts of my fear of death. He ended up deciding I should try a different kind of medication for ADHD, instead of the one I have been taking for 8 years. It tends to make me... grumpy... although that isn't a listed side effect. On the subject of my fear of death, he didn't have much advice. He suggested I see a therapist while at UCSC and little else. He kept saying, "Interesting, interesting..." while I was explaining my fear. I thought this was normal; my brother has the same fear on a nightly basis, and he's 23. To a psychologist, I guess we're all special snowflakes.

Also, I messed up my back while in Tahoe and now even the slightest movement (and sometimes just staying perfectly still) hurts pretty bad. It's been going on like this for quite some time and I'd really love it if I'd just get better already, because ibuprofen doesn't do shit.
