    i thot it was kind of inevitable that there would be no way it could possibly live up to absurd expectations + all the gameplay footage showed no really innovative mechanix

    Well Bungie has been super secretive about it but its not Halo we DONT know what to expect so people wanted more clarification.

    Like up until about 6 weeks ago-ish we didn't even know the way the game was structured, and that was only revealed because one of the designers went on Neogaf to explain because people were like "WTF is Destiny?"

    My parents had an actual argument for arguing with me being impossible:

    not about random things, they're in the wrong there and they acknowledged that - because yeah, I get "urgh stop arguing all the time" and I never say that in return, which is why them arguing with me had been so annoying - the hypocrisy, or just being blind to their own actions

    but when we're discussing what I should do to make things work going forward, I'll take the argument on irrelevant tangents about the internal logic of one of their statements or whatever, not because i'm threating the discussion for discussion's sake, but because I fundamentally disagree with them - their solutions does not work because they don't understand the problem - and explaining the problem is too frustrating to try so I, in frustration, get an outlet for my disagreement through that

    (also as an aside: no, I do not do that here. Here I discuss for discussion's sake. We don't have any discussions about things this important where there is such a lack of understanding or such a problem of explanation of the problem.)

    Me and mom had a talk about the problem. Oh, to be less vague: depression. Explaining why shit doesn't work for me. It's not that I don't have enough time, so that's why their suggestions about what I should spend less time on to have more time for studies are met with counterarguments that aren't actually addressing anything they're saying. It's not this or that or this and that.

    It was a good talk but, it was also a talk we've had a few times before. I start off saying man I don't want to try to explain anymore it's too frustrating, discussion goes on I get calmer and less frustrated and talk openly but I realize that the conversation's the same and I suspect I will have it again. If that bit of pessimism proves true, next time I get a suggestion that maybe stop working at Hulen so I'll have enough time I will not bother to have another go at explaining, but I will be better and say no, your suggestions are founded on faulty understanding, stop.

    Aaanyway. That was actually kind of not the main bit of the talk which was at the start.

    Which was: I'm going to join Andy in driving back to Bergen tomorrow. Because I've been here long enough.

    And then followed a long explanation of not so much why the dinner argument was the straw that broke the camel's back, but why all the other straws were there.

    Essentially, I do not enjoy being here. It is frustrating and annoying and I stay for as long as I can take it, which has been less and less. And this summer, it's only three days. The reverse "do you argue with your friends that way": do you talk like this to any other adult? Do you tell any other adult what to do, or do you ask?

    No, was the answer that wasn't said. As in, they didn't argue. An argument punching through and "winning" like that would probably have felt satisfying - or at least cathartic - if I was at all emotional about it, but I was not.

    So basically, I told my parents that being with them is terrible for me and that this time I'm just going to not bother and leave, because I am finally, finally done with not liking the way I am treated and talked to. Instead of just enduring I am just leaving.

    This is not a fun thing to hear as parents. Probably worse so when they think I'm right in what I am saying.

    So now I have very very sad parents.

    Therapist for depression is something I've considered. I will get one the moment I feel myself slipping this semester.

    This is something else. This is me being finally, after years, done with being told that I must do something. Everyone but you treats me like adults treat adults. Everyone but you.

    So that's why I'm not going to stay and endure it - because of course I can't just say that I "can't take being here" and leave, can I? No, endure it a while longer, leave saying I'm bored here or something.

    But I can do that so I am which is why my parents were in tears and I sit there with no expression.

    I would get a therapist beforehand honestly.

    It is so much easier to call Dr X who you've met before than it is to actually make a first appointment, especially when you're depressed.

    Same deal as with doctors. Goes under the same deductible.

    (so if you've already spent the $324.7 that is the deductible, at your doctor, or on prescriptions, or the hospital, the psychologist is free. That's the total you have to spend of your own money per year for all of these.)

    yeah opting to wait is a bad idea i think

    unless it would put you in super dire financial straits, seems like a therapist (and potentially medication) is a no-brainer, given how much trouble you've had with stuff in the past

    and also given how depression can often mask itself such that 'as soon as i notice a problem' is a tenuous benchmark
