Yep. 20 is when it hit me too. That's the ball starting to roll downhill right there. Your school shit starts piling up, getting real serious, then you gotta start looking for a real job, then you work your ass up the ladder. Then you get married, have kids, get a 50 year mortgage on a house. By the time you have a job, you're lost about half of your soul. Wife and kids will chew up the other half in time.

No, but I love that you do. I need to buy a new copy of the book sometime. Though I've bought it probably five different times in my life. Lately I've been trying to build up a nice library for the baby, but my god books have gotten expensive. Perhaps I should steal them in order to provide TS with work.

I mean, who in the hell decided a Dr Seuss book should cost fifteen bucks? Do you know how many teeth a four year old has to lose to pay for that?

i also went through numerous copies of that book. mostly because i read it so much the binding fell apart and i lost all the pages, but the pages with illustrations that fell out of the hardcover version made nice little posters for my walls.

The nice thing about being an adult? I'm going to buy a signed copy of that book right now.

Been married 3 years, daughter is nearly 2. Life ain't that bad also I get to play on the PS3 almost everynight.

While you don't have a wife (dunno about gf?) or kids my best advice is, if you can, save up whatever money you can.

If I could go back and save I would do and wouldn't go out (at least not as much)pissing it up the walls or on a friends floor.


Jesus, so much this. I'm 26 with a house and a long term partner. If I'd not been such a waster when I was younger, I'd have a nicer house, car, money for holidays etc.

No law forces you to get married and have kids, you know.
Also, I guess things here are a bit different (Europe - Italy) but i'm almost 25 years old and just 1 of my high school friends has got married (and we were 24 folks in the class).

I have the money for one, but I can't convince myself to buy one anymore. If this was two years ago, I would have. The really weird thing is that I'm not hard up for cash and still feel like I should sell all my pedals and amps cause I don't use them as much.

I don't get it. Study hard enough and you won't have to worry about money anyway.

Of course my real passion is music; writing it, playing it etc. But I just cannot seem to find a band to play with. Even if I could, I barely have any spare time on my hands. And I don't want to drop out like my brother did and be kind of a dissapointment to my family.

The fact that I have no gf just makes shit even more depressing

Things used to be alot simpler. Man I sound old

Your situation sounds like an exact replica of my situation, except I don't mind my career path its more the people who I have to be around daily gets to me big time.

I liked being a kid, then I turned 18 and started hating life and all that growing up shit, now I'm 20 and I'm a stupid kid hating life. What happens when you're stupid and you hate? You destroy. I find the concept of destroying something beautiful invigorating.

I want to destroy my college course then destroy my physics degree then for the rest of my life destroy all the shitty parts of me that make me hate my self and self perpetuate this feeling of hatey destroyingness.

I think the last bit is called 'self improvement'

>Wanna be independant
<Don't wanna have responsibilities
>Wanna stop being a little bitch
<Don't wanna grow up

What do

Why should you worry about getting married? The odds that you'll get divorced sooner or later are quite damn high anyway. Getting a gf is another thing though. Just realized I'll be 20 in four months and still never have had a relationship. That bad?
