I just installed Nanny for Google Chrome, which, like LeechBlock for Firefox, should help me to recoup some of the time that is now actively being stolen by YouLube and FaceLook. If I'm too weak on my own to push back technology to its proper servile place, then I might as well use technology to do some of the pushing for me. You're a tool, you damn computer, nothing more than that!

Maybe my biggest accomplishment to date—maybe my only real accomplishment, if your glasses are so colored by society's standards—has been to be accepted to the University of Groningen as a fulltime biology student. To apply, I had to send my curriculum and a letter of motivation. Which motivation? I wasn't so sure that I'd like to be a student. Actually, I had been quite certain for most of my adult life that I really did not want to study and waste all that precious time for a few crums of knowledge.

I'm trying to pump up myself to write a piece of text about psychopathy. All three other group members already wrote their part. We're making a scientific poster titled “Is there a psychopath hidden in your brain?” But, do I even want to know? It's all very close to home, with a mother who's been accusing her ex-husband (my dad) of being a psychopath for, like, forever, and, simultaneously, this monkey in my brain, pointing it's accusative little finger straight at me.

There are many clever ways to tell you this. There are many ways to deceive. But in the end I feel that more often than not the deception merely serves to reinforce that image of a very vulnerable naked man.

Ok, so according to the family doctor it was never a fungal infection (which a jock itch is), but really eczema. Nobody knows what that is. Whatever. I'm not a doctor. It itches and it affects my cock, so I am just going to refer to it as my cock itch.
