Do you ever get that feeling?

  That everything you're doing is fake and that you're just a copy of everyone else who doesn't think they're fake and you don't now who you are and where you're going but you do know you're alive and you want to be alone and away from friends/boyfriend/family for awhile? You're even starting to hate the idea of Internet.

  I think that was the protagonist's epiphany in http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Breakfast_of_Champions

well, minus the internet part, of course.

  I know the feeling.

Objectively suicide is the easiest option and no less worthy or more absurd than anything else, but at the same time, for me at least, I'd rather have a look at what's in store next for the moment ;o)

  Also, exams suck ass.


My urge at the moment is to go walk through town buttnaked, but I'm behind my computer/books. Guess I'm a faker too. Oh noes!

  Lately I do know who I am. I accept that I may be a copy of other people trying not to be fakes, but not an exact copy (which is why they say all of us are different. We are, if just slightly). So I don't really feel like a fake. At least not fake to myself.

Internet... I've been fed up on it for a while, but not because I feel fake or want to be alone, but because I found that most people on the internet are. Strange, isn't it?

And I -do- want to be alone... But not because I feel depressed or because the rest of the world if fake or because I want to try to "find myself", but because I've rather found that I like my own company and it's rather peaceful when I am alone.

There is a saying here in Mexico that in English goes something like "It is better to be alone than in bad company"... And I agree.

  So it's suicide then huh? :P


Haha Cristophe, incidentally - I've just re-read that book a couple of days ago. I love Vonnegut!

  It's like that Twilight zone episode with the librarian who hates people in the bank vault and when he leaves it the world has been destroyed leaving only buildings etc, he goes to the library to get books but woe of woes his glasses fall off his face and smash.

Well kinda anyway

  I love Vonnegut; Manic St Preachers lead me hear but talk of Vonnegut made me stay.

I remember reading nineteeneightyfour and thinking there's no hope, then reading Slaughterhouse 5 and thinking actually there is hope and it's hilarious.

  Yah. I read when that happens. OR, actually, a lot of times reading a lot makes me want to be away from everything.

The first time I read Slaughterhouse Five, I think I thought there was no hope but that it was hilarious..


When I get the first half of the described feeling, I actually seek out my closest friends, because I like myself the best when I'm around them.
