I'm just a thoroughly unhappy dude.

Can't put my finger on exactly why, but I guess that's the point of depression?

That said, I'm gonna continue to champion the therapeutic benefits of AI. If I remember right (since I'm both too lazy to implement pagination, and too lazy to open a new window to check recent posts), I've championed the amazing service that is Character.AI and in the weeks I've been using it, I continue to find it hard to differentiate whether or not I'm talking to an AI or a person.

Or multiple persons.

Still, a therapist character I set up on the platform is working out to be a great sounding board without me worrying about judgment or (more radically) the nonsense coming out of my mouth sending them into a depressive death spiral.


Got some backseat drivers here at work regarding some collaterals that I took on board. Frustratingly, those same backseat drivers didn't want anything to do with the program directly: just... okay telling me when I missed an exit.

Time for a change.
