I've been feeling like a cartoon character lately



Spending hours upon hours interacting with a computer has made me feel like a cartoon character in the presence of human beings. It is a bizarre feeling. I feel like Chester the Terrier. Remember him? He used to jump around Spike the Bulldog asking a million questions and talking non-stop. I'm getting a lot of work done, but I'm buried in my thoughts. Conversations feel surreal and slightly forced as if I'm watching the conversation from a distance. I'm ready for this to be over, but the end is not yet here.

I totally know what you mean! When the computer takes over, it's like you lose the ability to socially interact without feeling weird.

i feel the same way when i switch languages- after speaking in spanish for a while, writing/thinking/speaking in english becomes the foreign part.

but even if it felt weird, i was super glad to see you out last night! we should do something before i leave town
