cos I am.
Having still not achieved anything.
Still got 10 more months to go.
I believe in you!
What if I accidentally achieve something between now and September?
Get up every day and say to the world "Today, I will achieve nothing!"
I'm not getting up every day
make of that what you will
I know you've looked at my profile page.
you soon forget about these things.
I assume your already on your blue wkds.
it's my birthday in a few weeks and I still havn't written any good songs or bits of writing. what's gone wrong?
or talking to girls instead?
I have yet to:
1) Play up front for Rangers at Ibrox
2) Play to a packed out Glasgow Barrowland
3) Have sex with Claudia Schiffer
4) Speak fluently in any language other than English
5) Make millions
I live in hope though.
think my life is all down hill from here (I blame the Universtity of Cambridge and its high achieving wankers for giving me an inferiority complex).
Hopefully this will all pass. As I'm sure it will for you too.
I just have massive crises of confidence every so often that mean I end up sitting at home, doing nothing.
I'm not moping though. Something will happen. By the time I'm thirty I'm already going to be a fucking legend.
Oh fuck, fuck, fuck.
kill yourself yes
save yourself the hassle and kill yourself now
(just in case you thought I had)
The joke will get old quickly though.
i thought, hey, everyone probably worries a little about this and have done for generations, and i felt, hey, as long as i'm positive about my abilities and my potential for happiness - fawin' in luff, etc. - then erthing'd be alright.
then i fucked my coursework up and lost confidence in myself completely and now i've spent the past week feeling like this ^ and badgering people i don't know well for sympathy.
starting to get better again though. i bought a wooly shirt and a record.
blah blah blah
mostly its thinking 'oh my god what the fuck am i doing'
i mean, i'm pretty happy, but although i've enjoyed my degree i don't actually know what i want to do with it, and i have the feeling that it'll be pretty useless, and that's a depressing thought. I don't know, i'd rather have done this than a degree in business or something unbearably awful like that, but i feel like it's quite a selfish degree to have done.
I've got ten years to do something with my life before i'm 30, i'm hoping that'll seem like a long time.
i've been thinking about teaching in future. decorating the class room with maps and posters, indoctrinating pupils, having a janitor cupboard affair with the music teacher... teaching better than i got taught myself would be my ultimate goal really...
but ultimately decided that i would absolutely hate it. Children - gross.
I think i'm just going to trundle along and see what opportunities present themselves. Hopefully they'll be good ones!
I'd love to be a famous artist, that would be amazing :D i'm probably not in enough emotional turmoil to be the next tracy emin though. woe!
I worry about what I'm up to next Saturday, but not in the next ten years.
It probably is a bad sign on your part to be worrying about not achieving
on the other hand, if you can turn that worry into ambition and a determination to succeed then it could be a healthy thing
im starting to feel like this is it and i've failed at life.
i need to find a direction likE NOW
IN THE ARMY
AND KILL THEM
but i'm hopeful that i'll have "experienced" stuff, and it's nice to think of how much time i have left to do that, at the very least
to achieve. i'm 23 next year, have no job, and still have no idea what i want to do. you just have to bide your time, and not rush into things, or is that a lazy persons answer?
my advice would be, start smoking weed, or if you already do, smoke more.
most people won't. but it depends what you mean anyway, you haven't said (i don't think, but i only skimmed this monster anyway)
i'd be quite happy with an average mundane life. No one achieves anything by 30 anyway (outside of creative stuff) your 20's are just and extended teenagehood where you go to an office instead of school
you're going to be thinking that for another 13 years!
It never gets better!! Ask sadpunk!!!!!!
babar the elephant all yours worrys would be over.
and realising youve not achieved much.But i was never really wanting to achieve anything as such anyway.
its scary bein this age,its like your in limbo,still in my 20's but 30 in aug next year.The main thing is im alot happier at this age than what i was at 21.Its funny when i see 18-19 year old nowadays i just cant relate to them or identify with them,iv just noticed this over the past year or two,i believe its called gettin old,its weird realising that its not your generation anymore,takes a bit of gettin used too.
therefore,dont worry about gettin older,just make the best of the time you got.
At least not the stuff you're supposed to: A career, a mortgage, a wife, kids, a car, holidays in exotic locations. I really don't care about it, but everyone I know gives me these pitying looks. They seem to think I'm trying and failing when the truth is I'm not trying and I'm happy not to. I work in a city center club, make a lot of money, have a lot of fun, and am responsible only to myself. I've been called selfish for thinking like this but how the hell is it selfish?
Spending too much time thinking about this and not enough time doing things that will stop it from coming true maybe.
Seems like everyone is too obsessed with **BEING SUCCESSFUL** rather than actually being good enough at something to warrant it.
As long as you harm no-one and try to help the other peeps as much as possible, what the fuck is the problem?
Personal enjoyment is what its all about. As long as I've laughed as much as I can laugh and danced as much as I can dance, I'll die a happy man.
Any achievements thereafter are secondary bonuses.
Creaky? Is there a post limit or something?
Since it takes very little effort to conceive (unless you're unable to). HOWEVER, raising kids right, so they don't end up working in McDonald's or an office, is far harder and is a real achievement. I suppose it's all subjective, really. A mortgage means nothing to me; clocking GTA IV in successively faster times does. I'm positive there's someone who considers a mortgage more important than a career, or a career more important than having kids. Personal choice, folks. Personal choice.
so I'm not going to post again in this thread.
