flashback to the time when katy told me to write an email with my love woes to captain awkward and he replied “this guy sounds like an emotional vampire”

she!! captain awkward is a lady!! but OMFG you never told me you got a response and that there is a record now of captain awkward referring to a certain local dude as an emotional vampire 

SORRY! I thought I did. Her exact response was, “This guy sounds like an emotional vampire and a nightmare and I think you can decide if you want to be free of him. 5 years from now you’ll be glad you are free, I think. People don’t need to work that hard at deciding how much they like you. They just don’t. He likes you obviously, he likes your attention even more, but if he can’t give you what you need and treat you well, then cut him loose for several months of no contact and get him out of your system.”

Nothing like creating a child to snap your life back into reality. I miss Athens but I was also a little nuts back then.

this is super satisfying 

me and jean were gonna go downtown then we ran into some friends doing some witchy shit, did some witchy shit instead

i would really really really love to read a piece or a zine of women’s stories of being in bands with awful dudes

i feel like athens could do this alone

I’m circulating this like wild fire because the mayoral election is fast approaching and I want everybody to know who they’re casting their vote for.

ugh my entire experience in athens

what really sucks is that while i have no idea who this is about i already thought “maybe it’s ____” about 3 or 4 different bands

to be totally honest i was always too scared of no one ever believing me about shitty stuff to say anything cause i was afraid of getting essentially kicked out of the scene/demonized myself which i feel like is/was a very real possibility

yeah i can attest to that not really working out

the only thing now is if people behave that way i just don’t really care anymore

there’s an awesome americorps position available in athens but i… want to… leave athens??? athens you’re making things difficult for me.

i guess i could have just made her look at the notes on this post

everyone i know in town that’s not…

This thread is makin me feel awful

:( Don’t feel awful! You came here out of choice, right? I mean, it’s still a great place, just, you have to choose it, not get stuck here. Also, you are an artist/creator, not just a kid bumming around without a purpose!

I mean, I have literally lived two places in my entire life, that’s it. I wish I had traveled more.

edit2: don’t listen to me, I’m having a bad week and questioning life decisions.

yeah, i moved here almost 4 years ago after i finished undergrad because i liked it here. i still like it a lot in many ways but i am often upset/depressed about not traveling more or experiencing other cities, especially now that i am single because dating in athens is terrible..

and it’s like, i feel like i have so much self doubt about my life choices, what i have done, living in this place where i do on my own! so when other people/friends talk so much about how athens is terrible/shitty/and about how living here is foolish it literally makes me feel like complete garbage and hate my life? maybe i should just stop following people who post about it so much. it’s not healthy for me, honestly.

honestly the point i was trying to make was “athens is difficult to leave” rather than “athens is a horrible place to live” but it’s difficult to talk about inability to leave without also sounding like you’re complaining about it i guess. (clarification: i’m personally not complaining, i loved living in athens but now i definitely feel ready to move on) i feel like your story about moving here is about like claiming your independence rather than staying when you want to leave and you shouldn’t feel bad about that!! 

OK MOM-

  1. isnteverything said: I left almost three years ago but even visiting has been so bad for me that I’ve been on an Athens cleanse for 6 months and counting.
  2. isnteverything answered: IT’S A TRAP. I got out, but I have case studies.
  3. harvest-gold said: Marie nailed it with her comment on the last post. It’s never, EVER “just one more year” and you usually don’t have anything to show for it later
  4. coral-greef answered: tell her to talk to the kitchen and wait staff at the grit
  5. coral-greef said: marieyall is RIGHT, that is a big part of why I left bcuz all my friends were 30 and GOING NOWHERE. also my life was fucked up there but if i stayed it woulda stayed messed!
  6. impossibletospell said: Athens is sneaky like that. You do have an awesome house and friends, and it’s cheap to live here…
  7. AND OF COURSE marieyall said: every year you stay in athens after you initially plan to leave it takes like 2 years to even get ready to maybe leave and sometimes you NEVER LEAVE. only saying get out if you want (asap) but otherwise **embrace it**!!!
  8. also marie’s other testimonial 

TRUST MARIE ALWAYS.

the magical door to leave athens only opens once every 4-6 years and if you miss it you have to wait the whole time til it opens again
