Yeah, getting outside opinions on such matters is a really great way to see things from different perspectives.
You have the right mind set.
Now it's all on you; if you are able to go through with it or not.

Other things you can do to help you would maybe be:
Drive around with a relative/ parent/ sibling/ friend.
Bring your own music in the car, via cassette-tape, CD, or blue-tooth.
Bring a GPS. It'll display the speed limit, and if you set it up, it'll show when and where to turn. TomTom's are really great, btw.

I don't think having someone else in the car would help me. I've driven with other people before, but I need to work on myself first.
I'm too concerned about getting distracted for the time being, so any music, especially something I like, would just play into that fear.
That's a good idea. They were all good ideas, although to be used at later times.

It's something you face head-on.
You can try preparing for it by just going out and driving around your neighborhood once a day. Or simply driving to go get yourself food, or maybe go kill time at the mall.
Other than that, once you get into the habit of going to and from school, it will become extremely easy.

I used to feel the same way when I had to commute to and from my job.
It was an hour and a half each way, driving on i95. Does not help that Virginia has 5 of the top 25 worst cities to drive in, in the US.
After a few weeks, I became really, really comfortable driving. It became mundane. I was really comfortable with driving. Even with all of the crazy drivers on the road.

You will overcome the anxiety when the time comes for you to drive the same route every day. At first you will still have the anxiety, but I assure you that once it becomes regular and mundane, that anxiety will pass.

Hell, I was so bad, that I would shake by just thinking about driving. Then after forcing myself to go out there and drive that commute, I overcame it.
It's something that will be fixed with time. So the best thing you can do right now is force yourself to go to simple places. Go out to eat just 'cause. Go feed some ducks. Go drive around town. Go out and drive a few times a week, and it will get better.

Okay, thanks. I thought I'd have to do something along those lines, but you'll often look for other solutions before doing what you know you have to do. I'll take a look at what you said in the other thread too. Thanks again.

Wait, what would the carbon monoxide have to do with the bugs? Or do you mean the heating vent?
User avatar #144791 - thedudeistheman (07/16/2014) [-]
I mean with the heating vent. Sealing it up would solve the bug problem, should the bugs be coming from there. Like I said though, I no next to nothing about how carbon monoxide comes to be, so I don't know how safe or unsafe sealing it is.

If it all works out, the next problem you'd run into would be if the need to take the cover off arises. I don't know how smart bugs are, but in my experience, they typically aren't that intelligent. A lot of bugs might pile up in there. I never checked what happened with my outlet cover, but since the bugs could just crawl past, I assume not many got stuck there. With your heating thingy, I don't know if there's another way for bugs to go, once they're in there.

If you have a carbon monoxide detector, put one in your room for a few days. If it goes off, that might be why. Also, I know almost jack shit about how carbon monoxide is formed so take that however you will.

User avatar #144781 - thedudeistheman (07/16/2014) [-]
Yeah, that looks like it could be it. The problem there though is that you can't seal that up, in case you or someone else needs to get into it. I don't know if you can put tape around the borders because it might need some sort of ventilation provided by the fact that the cover isn't airtight.

User avatar #122563 - thebestpieever (07/16/2014) [-]
Elongated vowels make english accents disappear, and we give histrionic accents to the pronunciation of consonants when we sing. Also, the way we pronounce the r is (well, not the English, but every else) is either too rolling (scots) or it it's slightly slower than it ought to be for singing (American, Canadian) so we either take it out or always make it rolling. So in our langague it's almost null. Try hearing a Japanese person singing in English, though, and their L, R, A and will always be wrong. Because while elongated, they analogate it to a different sound in their language than we do (Well, the English do pronounce the A like the Japanese, but not the rest of the Anglosphere).

In Spanish their accents are dictaded by cadence (which is eliminated by singing) and the S, C, Z and R letters. Only one of which is commonly given an histrionic accent when singing, so it's actually noticeable there.

In short: It depends on what language it is, what defines its accents and what accent does the original speak have. The way native English speakers define their accents is usually deleted because of the way we have to elongate words for the purpose of singing.
User avatar #122564 - thedudeistheman (07/16/2014) [-]
Ah, okay, that's pretty cool. After you talked about Japanese singers singing in English, I remembered this band called Guitar Wolf, and the accent is definitely noticeable there.

Well thanks for that, it's pretty interesting.

sure
User avatar #131 to #130 - thedudeistheman ONLINE (06/26/2014) [-]
Well then, after getting the paperwork done, the bond shall be established.

I just wanted to say thank you.
User avatar #104 to #103 - instalation ONLINE (03/28/2014) [-]
Anyway, I'll be off now. Cya.
User avatar #105 to #104 - thedudeistheman ONLINE (03/28/2014) [-]
I remember this. It was no problem at all. I was just trying to help. If you don't mind me asking, are you okay? What happened?
User avatar #106 to #105 - instalation ONLINE (03/28/2014) [-]
I'm pretty okay. It's been nearly a year but I think I'm finally about to actually drop him. I've decided on it now, and I'm pretty okay with the idea.

I just feel like I should have thanked you for your help and stuff.
User avatar #107 to #106 - thedudeistheman ONLINE (03/28/2014) [-]
I wish you only the best of luck. You deserve happiness, and especially to be treated well.

I appreciate that, but you really don't have to. We shouldn't have had to talk about that, but unfortunately, there are people in the world who abuse others. I just wanted to lend a hand. I'm glad I could help.
User avatar #108 to #107 - instalation ONLINE (03/28/2014) [-]
Thank you.
To be honest I don't know what else to really say..
User avatar #110 to #108 - thedudeistheman ONLINE (03/28/2014) [-]
Oh, hey, just as a side note, my offer still stands if you ever need to talk. But yeah, I hope everything works out well.
User avatar #111 to #110 - instalation ONLINE (03/28/2014) [-]
I was just planning on stopping by. I might come back later. I just felt that thanks was in order
User avatar #112 to #111 - thedudeistheman ONLINE (03/28/2014) [-]
Okay, no problem. I'll be here if you do decide to come back for a chat. Again, it was really no trouble at all, but I appreciate the fact that you came back after nearly a year to thank me for that. It does mean a lot to me.
User avatar #109 to #108 - thedudeistheman ONLINE (03/28/2014) [-]
That's okay. It's sort of hard to transition from the previous topic. I understand you might have planned to just stop by quickly, so if you'd like to go, I just want to say it was nice hearing from you again, and that you're okay. Again, best of luck to you.
User avatar #96 to #95 - thedudeistheman ONLINE (11/06/2013) [-]
Yes, I see, yes.

After a full analysis of the content shown above, I have come to a single question: What is this?
User avatar #97 to #96 - revengeforfreeze (11/06/2013) [-]
I have no idea honestly
It's print screen taken from this video I watched

It's pretty funny I'll link it to you
www.youtube.com/watch?v=1M_9gtmMZpk
User avatar #98 to #97 - thedudeistheman ONLINE (11/06/2013) [-]
I'm not quite sure what to make of that.
User avatar #99 to #98 - revengeforfreeze (11/06/2013) [-]
The video? Me neither. It's just cool.
User avatar #100 to #99 - thedudeistheman ONLINE (11/06/2013) [-]
Can't disagree with you there.
User avatar #115 to #100 - revengeforfreeze (04/22/2014) [-]
It's been like, 6 months, damn. Time goes by too damn quickly... How was your life when I posted this and how is it today?
User avatar #116 to #115 - thedudeistheman ONLINE (04/22/2014) [-]
Well it was good then, and it's good now. Thanks for asking. How's yours been, and how was it then?
User avatar #117 to #116 - revengeforfreeze (04/23/2014) [-]
That's great, man. Anything new except for the thoughts about ocd?
Ive been a bit confused but else great
User avatar #118 to #117 - thedudeistheman ONLINE (04/23/2014) [-]
No, nothing in particular. Just school work and some other things. Mind if I ask what you're confused about?
User avatar #119 to #118 - revengeforfreeze (04/23/2014) [-]
School is hard isn't it?
Also yeah I think I am confused about my fluctuating mood
User avatar #120 to #119 - thedudeistheman ONLINE (04/23/2014) [-]
Eh, sometimes it is, sometimes it isn't.
Any ideas for what could be causing it?
User avatar #121 to #120 - revengeforfreeze (04/23/2014) [-]
Hiw about now
Music probably
User avatar #122 to #121 - thedudeistheman ONLINE (04/23/2014) [-]
It's good. Been getting more homework than usual, though, but that happens sometimes.
That must be some intense music.
User avatar #123 to #122 - revengeforfreeze (04/23/2014) [-]
It's for a good cause though the future. Lol cheesy
It is, this particular song is called sterile nails and thunderbowels and every time it makesme feel an eemotional storm..
User avatar #124 to #123 - thedudeistheman ONLINE (04/23/2014) [-]
Is it a good song at least?
User avatar #125 to #124 - revengeforfreeze (04/23/2014) [-]
I think.it is. Took me a while to get used to the vocals but they massively add on to the experience of despair.

User avatar #90 to #89 - thedudeistheman ONLINE (11/03/2013) [-]
I've watched it.

It was interesting. Being that it's experimental and has come from the creativity of your own mind, I can't even begin to imagine what it could represent, if anything at all. But I like it.
User avatar #91 to #90 - tvfreakuk (11/03/2013) [-]
At the moment what is there means pretty much nothing in terms of the visuals meaning.
But as the original premise was coming from my fear of procrastination, what I'm wanting it to be is that it's simply something I've made, that I can say I've made and can be proud of, show people, and have actually achieved something... And I guess that's the meaning
User avatar #92 to #91 - thedudeistheman ONLINE (11/03/2013) [-]
I understand what you're saying. Good luck with the rest of the video. Judging from this, I'm sure it'll turn out very well, even if it's nothing like this part.
User avatar #93 to #92 - tvfreakuk (11/03/2013) [-]
Yeah I'm currently working with Paper Mache in stop-motion of a moving eye with the lighting superimposed on top.
In a way, it's going to be about the procrastination thing again (with the eye being "distracted" by the lights) but it just makes it interesting visuals, rather than the narrative I had before about the computer that was just getting a little complicated
User avatar #94 to #93 - thedudeistheman ONLINE (11/03/2013) [-]
That sounds like it'll be really interesting. Best of luck.
#87 - tvfreakuk has deleted their comment [-]
User avatar #88 to #87 - thedudeistheman ONLINE (10/28/2013) [-]
That sounds great! Sounds like, when completed, it would be worthy of a festival run.
#80 - tvfreakuk has deleted their comment [-]
User avatar #82 to #80 - thedudeistheman ONLINE (10/11/2013) [-]
I do remember. Maybe I'll be able to catch it at a festival. Seeing as this is now the case, if it does get played at any festivals, can you let me know which ones?
#83 to #82 - tvfreakuk has deleted their comment [-]
User avatar #84 to #83 - thedudeistheman ONLINE (10/11/2013) [-]
I'd been thinking about going to some festivals with some friends anyway. Your film might coincidentally be playing at said festival.
#85 to #84 - tvfreakuk has deleted their comment [-]
User avatar #86 to #85 - thedudeistheman ONLINE (10/11/2013) [-]
I live near New York City and the surrounding areas, so I'd most likely be going to a festival in or near the city.

you still doing those minecraft story things?
User avatar #69 to #68 - thedudeistheman ONLINE (09/07/2013) [-]
Not at the moment, no. I can't think of any other good ones to share.
User avatar #70 to #69 - zaxzwim (09/07/2013) [-]
and you said something about having a server?
User avatar #71 to #70 - thedudeistheman ONLINE (09/07/2013) [-]
I used to have one up. I plan on creating a new one, but I haven't found the time to do so. Enabling the port forwarding on my router requires a reboot, and I don't know when I'd be able to do that without interrupting others.
User avatar #72 to #71 - zaxzwim (09/07/2013) [-]
no one has played on my server for about 2 months now
User avatar #73 to #72 - thedudeistheman ONLINE (09/07/2013) [-]
I'll join you sometime if you want. I haven't found a good server in a while.
User avatar #74 to #73 - zaxzwim (09/07/2013) [-]
it's on FTB at the moment
User avatar #75 to #74 - thedudeistheman ONLINE (09/07/2013) [-]
I am unfamiliar with FTB.
User avatar #76 to #75 - zaxzwim (09/07/2013) [-]
never played any of the feed the beast mod packs? have you played tekkit before?
User avatar #77 to #76 - thedudeistheman ONLINE (09/07/2013) [-]
No and no. At most I've messed around with some Bukkit plugins, but the server I used to host was either Bukkit or Vanilla with some client-side mods (TMI, any number of flying mods, maybe OptiFine).
User avatar #78 to #77 - zaxzwim (09/07/2013) [-]
well your in for a world of confusion then
User avatar #79 to #78 - thedudeistheman ONLINE (09/07/2013) [-]
I've seen in-depth Tekkit stuff before, but I have no idea how to do or use any of it. But hey, you can't learn if you don't mess around with it.

The following events took place on what I believe was the first server I ever hosted.

> Myself, Scooby Doo, and another kid are playing (we'll call that kid Goaty)
> Goaty is doing something far away from the town we built up (this was probably around Beta 1.2 or very close to that, so we couldn't hijack pre-built towns)
> Scooby Doo and I decide to have some fun
> Go into Goaty's house
> Place TNT under one single block in his house
> Put pressure pads on every single block in his house to trick him
> Goaty comes back
> "What is this?"
> Tell him it's just a game
> "No, you guys put TNT under my house."
> The jig is up but he still hasn't activated the TNT yet
> Goaty starts breaking all the pressure pads
> Fuck, we didn't anticipate this
> Get nervous that he won't blow up his own house
> He breaks the pressure pad he was supposed to step on
> I replace it
> At the time, he would always hit you the same number of times you hit him
> I punch him once
> I turn around and start running
> I step on the pressure pad to activate the TNT
> Scooby Doo sees this
> Shit is going down
> We both rush out of the house
> Goaty just barely makes it
> Kaboom motherfucker
> His house explodes
> Turn around to observe the damage
> 95% of it is gone
> Only some of the sides remain
> "WHY DID YOU GUYS DO THAT?"
> Tell him he stepped on the pressure pad and blew it up
> Goaty rages
> Scooby Doo and I head off somewhere else
> Goaty destroys the museum we made and some other stuff
> Looking back on it, we did deserve it
> To this day, whenever it comes up, I still tell him that it was his fault
> Don't know if he knows the truth or not

Kinda short, but still one of my favorite experiences in the game. If wanted, I have one last story I could share.
User avatar #67 to #66 - georgeojffs (08/13/2013) [-]

The following events took place on a server I used to run but unfortunately lost the world file for.

> Myself, Scooby Doo, HGA, and Friend A are online
> It's pretty much always just us
> We all wanted to try messing around with Bukkit, so I boot up a Bukkit server with a few plugins
> Have this one plugin that has a shitton of commands
> Scooby Doo and I decide to try them all
> At the moment, only he and I are OP-ed
> Go out into the desert to mess around so it doesn't affect the town
> Find one command that lets you spawn huge balls of material
> Let's try it out
> Spawn a huge ball of sponge
> Neato
> Decide to spawn an even bigger ball of water or ice or smething
> Probably has a radius of 50 or larger
> Entire server lags out
> Less than 1 FPS
> Even the town gets a lag spike for a few minutes
> After eventually getting back to town, the lag dies down
> Call that area "The Forbidden Lands" and never return to it
> Don't let it stop us from fucking around
> Move to unpopulated jungle-like area (jungles weren't a biome yet)
> Find a command called "delchunk" or something
> Gee I have no idea what this could do
> Decide to test it where Scooby Doo is standing
> Nothing happens
> "Maybe it doesn't work or something."
> Suddenly entire chunk disappears and he falls all the way through the world
> We share a hearty laugh for a minute or two
> Have no way to undo our mistake
> Have to block up missing chunk
> Only do top layer
> Wait for some poor soul to dig over there and find the horrors that lie below
> Go back into town after testing some less fun commands
> Find some commands that appear to cause large explosions
> Go to HGA's house
> Decide to test the explosion stuff practically right next to his home
> "But thedude, we don't know how large the explosion radius is."
> "Please, I know what I'm doing."
> Use a nuke command or something similarly destructive
> Aim the cursor fairly far away from HGA's house
> Press enter
> fuckinkaboom.everywhere
> Massive explosion lags out the server for a moment
> The edge of the exploded area can't be more than 5 blocks away from HGA's house
> "WHAT THE FUCK WAS THAT?"
> HGA is visible distressed
> "Don't worry about it, it was nothing."
> Keep dicking around in town, yet more cautious of seemingly explosive commands
> Find a fireball command
> "It can't be that large."
> Fire one off near HGA's house because we clearly know what we're doing
> Let me tell you, this was not a small fireball
> Strikes the impact crater the nuke left
> HGA can see it from his house
> "GODDAMMIT WHAT ARE YOU GUYS DOING?"
> "Don't worry, we're being careful."
> Suddenly notice HGA's roof is on fire
> Initiate game type Firefighter, difficulty = insane
> Fire is spreading like STDs in a sex ed video
> Quickly make our way to the roof of his house
> Put it out quickly somehow, but don't question it
> Replace blocks before he notices anything
> Eventually finish going through commands in a less destructive manner

Sort of an anticlimactic conclusion, but not all stories have the best endings.

I have two more stories I remember that I can share, if there's still interest.
#62 to #61 - BlakHoleSun (08/11/2013) [-]
Another good story.
User avatar #63 to #62 - thedudeistheman ONLINE (08/11/2013) [-]
Will do. I've been saving one of my personal favorites for last.
User avatar #64 to #63 - georgeojffs (08/12/2013) [-]
love these so much
User avatar #65 to #64 - thedudeistheman ONLINE (08/12/2013) [-]
I shall mention you too. I think this next one will be one of the better ones. Probably on a similar level to the Hunger Games story.

The following events have taken place on various server. I think this particular story was on one of my servers.

> Scooby Doo, Hunger Games Addy (we'll just abbreviate that to HGA from now on), and I are messing around on the server
> HGA is working on his house or something
> It's primarily wood-based
> Scooby Doo and I decide to have some fun and play firefighter, a "game" we made up
> The game involves setting someone's house on fire, turning around (or watching) for five or ten seconds
> This server was made after fire spread was nerfed in one of the updates, so we decide to give it a full twenty seconds before stepping in
> See HGA's house is mainly made out of wood
> Tell him we're going to have some fun
> Responds with something along the lines of "Okay, just don't fuck around near my house"
> He has no idea what we're doing
> Perfect
> Scooby Doo and I go to the front of his house while he's working on the back
> We each set one block on fire
> Turn around and count to 20
> Turn around to face the house again
> Oh dear Lord what have we done
> Entire front of the house is one fire and spreading inside
> We both start to half-panic, half-laugh in that panicky sort of way\
> Both start punching out fires as fast as possible
> It does virtually nothing, as the fire just re-spreads to the blocks
> Start breaking blocks to prevent fire spread
> It's no use, blocks are breaking from fire anyway
> "WHAT THE FUCK IS GOING ON?"
> Oh no, it's HGA
> He is not a happy camper
> "Don't worry, we have this under control
> Entire second level of house practically gone at this point
> Suddenly, I have a genius idea
> Just fill entire house with water
> Go inside and place source blocks covering at least half the house
> Well the fire's gone
> Scooby Doo and I spend next ten minutes blocking up the source blocks and other pesky water leaks
> Spend next five minutes replacing floor
> Front of the house takes another five minutes, spruce it up a bit as an apology gift
> Scooby Doo and I wander off and HGA gives us no thanks even though we repaired his house
> Jokingly say "You're welcome."
> "YOU BURNED DOWN HALF OF MY HOUSE."
> "Yeah, sure we did."
> Scooby Doo and I bored again
> "You wanna play firefighter again?"

I'm pretty sure you can guess what happened next, although we turned around for a much shorter period of time. Only ten seconds, I think.

Anyways, should I tell another?

I don't think they'd do well as OC. More of a short story kind of thing.

No worries. I never expect anyone to comment right away.

Will most likely post another story tomorrow.

The following events took place on the FunnyJunk server

> Connect to FJ server with friend (the one I won the Hunger Games with, we'll call him Scooby Doo)
> FJ server is notoriously laggy at this point, but whatever, we still play without much trouble
> Decide to create base of operations
> Get as far away from spawn as we possibly can
> Start digging into the side of a mountain, think it's less noticeable
> Don't use a door, just block up the entrance with dirt
> Plant seeds inside base to reduce need to go outside
> Start mining downwards
> Eventually create living area further underground, reduces the need to go up to the top of our base
> Soon realize we're quickly running out of wood, friend and I go back upstairs
> find all of our crops missing and chests looted (thank Notch it was just basic material like dirt and stone)
> There's a sign where the crops used to be
> It says "Black Midgets" (I don't remember if there was anything else written, but it can't be more important than that)
> Wonder why the Black Midgets never went down the mine shaft, but I don't question it too much
> Fear the Black Midgets for the rest of the game
> Block up entire upstairs area and permanently move underground
> Fuck, we still don't have any wood
> We get another friend to come on (Friend A, who was unjustly eliminated from the Hunger Games match)
> After a few deaths, he finally makes it to us, brings wood with him
> We live happily for probably an hour
> At one point during this time, Scooby Doo mines his way into an adjacent mine shaft
> Follows it, finds some other guy's loot, and steals most, if not all of it
> I get paranoid for two reasons
> 1 - He's going to find our mine shaft because we're so close together
> 2 - He's going to be super pissed that Scooby Doo stole all of his stuff, and he's going to seek revenge
> Scooby Doo dismisses the idea
> After about an hour, I'm still concerned, but not as much
> About 30 minutes later from that point, we all decide to go get pizza (we usually play
at someone's house, so we're all together when we play)
> Our underground living area was dug into the side of the mine shaft, so we block it up with dirt so it's not noticeable if you're just walking down the corridor
> Keep in mind that this is not the same side Scooby Doo dug into that separated us from the other guy's mine shaft
> Also place all valuable items into our inventories so they can't be looted while we're not online
> Maybe 30-45 minutes pass
> Scooby Doo and Friend A are playing other games
> I quickly log back on to see what materials we had in our chest
> There is a guy standing in our living area
> nope.jpeg
> Quickly log off, tell Scooby Doo that the guy whose stuff he stole was in our base
> Don't know if it was actually that guy, but who else would it have been, there's virtually no other way to know we were there
> Give it about two minutes before I log back on, figure this guy could do whatever he's gonna do in that time span and be out
> Log back on
> I'm dead
> Must've lagged out when logging off, he killed me while I was lagging
> Stole at least 20 diamonds, countless stacks of iron and gold, etc.
> Also broke our beds
> The coordinates we had were for the upstairs area we blocked off to avoid more Black Midget attacks
> We have no way of getting back
> Notch, why have you abandoned me

It's been a couple of months, and I still have not logged back on to the FJ server since that day.

So, what do you guys think? I have more stories to share if you guys are interested.

Question: Is there a space between "Hole" and "Sun" in your name? I don't think FJ allows that, but the formatting makes it look that way to me, which is why I listed your name twice in the comment, one with and one without a space.

Also, it seems like there will be another story tomorrow.
