I don't think I've felt this way since my first night in North Carolina 6 years ago. My stomach literally feels completely empty, to the point of shrinking in on itself, despite the fact that I just ate. It is difficult to understand what brought this on. I'm not alone. There are plenty of people around here. I was just at the gym playing basketball for a few hours with some guys I know, and I've probably got a date lined up for this weekend. It's just that all of a sudden, I feel like a foreigner in a new country who doesn't speak the language yet and can't interact in any meaningful way with those who make up his immediate surroundings. Even PF seems boring right now, with repetitive and dull threads in which nothing is accomplished other than people continuing to hold the exact same points of view and not seeming to learn anything outside of the Homework Help forum. The Dodgers won big and are in first place and I don't care. My fantasy baseball team is dominantly in first place and I don't care. The semester is almost over and I have good classes and I don't care. What gives?
