Yeah, yeah, we're all at crossroads. I actually faced a crossroads when facing one was still cool: either quit working and start developing my life skills, or continue making lots of money and impressing everyone who asks "what do you do?".


I picked the first one.


The hard part is sticking with it. How the hell do you wake up in the morning and go "I still want to be me?". Like I make my fashion choices now based on odor. I sometimes chew gum/mint drops because brushing my teeth is too much. Every day of the past week I've told myself that I'm gonna buy nicotine patches (I'm patchless). I see my gut growing and then still make that order. Actually, if you want to know how bad it's gotten: I fell asleep last night with gum in my mouth and woke up with it not in my mouth. Just imagine where it went.


How do you do this day to day stuff? I have no obligations at all, it's just about improving myself, and I just can't do it. I can tell that I'm at that real crossroads where I'll define whether I'm just this loser man-child or if I'm the kind of guy who knows how to work a laundry machine thing.

don't worry about that man, i swallowed gum when i was seven, life is gonna be fine

also, you were kind of dumb for quitting your job when you didn't even know what you wanted in place of that

How old are you now? Do you still get farty?


And I actually think it's the smart thing. Sure I could afford to send my clothes out and I ate $100 meals that I didn't pay for. But I was halfway up a ladder I didn't want to climb instead of just starting at a ladder I did, y'know? Now I have to do that discipline thing and it's insanely difficult. I think.

uh oh, you're saying it's the gum?...

the middle of that ladder is a perfectly fine place to stop and ponder. you weren't ready for the ladder and you evidently were not ready for this...so i would have stayed.

no big deal though, just find another ladder and stick with it because you haven't found anything better to do.

I for one applaud your decision but you're right, you just need to give yourself a kick up the butt, make yourself a game plan and then grab it by the balls. When you're not fulfilling the **** out of your dreams with your eyes shut, no hands and four Swedish models at your side get some physical exercise, go for a jog or something, that kind of thing.
You know what you gotta do, now do it soldier

Motivation, doing something you're genuinely interested in, and anti-depressants.

Doing laundry isn't that hard. Separate your whites (just like racism). Set the machine to "Cotton" and 40 degrees C if you're not sure. Read the labels and instructions on the detergent. Don't wash anything with this symbol .

Look up a tutorial on YouTube if you're not sure. Such is the way of the modern man.

Have a five minute pause and just let your mind wander. You'll find out eventually what you want to do. For now, just go where life takes you and try new things.

It'll come to you I'm going through something similar at the moment.

Eh, i'm kinda in the same boat. My live is pretty much screwed. I'm doing horrible in university, I don' t have the motivation or dedication to go out and do stuff I'd like to do and I'm probably gonna end up with a shitty job. I don' t even know how to earn enough money to move out of my house, I got a part time job and I was incredibly miscalculating the money I would get. I don' t know what to do with my life either, man :/

Just throw your clothes together in the machine, they'll be fine.

I know what you're actually doing and I'm jealous. Stick with it.

Take a shower you scummy arab.

Self improvement and motivation are the most important things, get them. It's not hard, you just need self control.

Don't quit smoking, it helps with concentration.

Take a shower and wash your clothes.

Go out and make friends.

Stop watching porn.

Listen to Black Flag.

Do exercise.

You escaped a country torn apart by civil war and now you're wasting a life that was luckily unscathed, think about how lucky you were and how you're wasting it. Think of your fellow country men, do them proud and be a man. Sort it out Ali, I know you can and you're really living the life right now, just take a bloody shower.
