I've been thinking recently about life. It seems that so many people are possesed by work and that it seems that is what their life is.
Im the opposite I do no work [the reason im failing school,till tomorrow and ill do my work] and I was just wondering what everyone else is doing with theirs.
I play guitar,listen to music and am planning to go to college to do E.lectronic engineering
EDIT: Im 15 by the way,flame me all you want I coudn't care less im more bothered about my fingers bleeding from 11 hours of playing guitar

To much time on the computer. I do graphic design at college so it's good to have some work to do.

Work is necessary, but the most important is your family.. (Was just watching the "Click" movie )

That's what scares me about like growing up (for me I'm only 14)

Like, I don't wanna live just to work. It's like everyday, Get up, shower, eat, go to work, come home, eat, watch TV, sleep. And it just repeats. I want to actually do something. I want to travel and tour. I wanna be a musician or something creative. It scares me. I don't wanna be stuck in a tiny cubicle. Meh.

I agree... "All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy", I must have my job be something that I enjoy doing so a musician would be perfect, maybe a guitar teacher on the side for some, somewhat steady cash flow.

I'm just trying to pass school. Play the guitar for kicks and what not. I'm not sure what I would like to do later on. Maybe an architect, or a carpenter. Maybe just real-estate, or future leader of the world. From reading the bible, what I believe is that the only purpose for living is worshiping god, I mean thats why he created us in the first place so whatever.

no work huh? electrical engineer? touring musician? bullshit, u get out of life what u put into it...if you don't work at watever it is ur trying to accomplish then u'll never achieve ur goals, if you work hard for what u want then u'll reap the rewards later, success doesn't come by sittin on ur ass, playing guitar, and watchin TV

that tiny cubicle could be as big as you want

you could work in a boring office all day but at night you can play at a local bar with your blues band

/deluxity's dream


but i wouln't mind being a sound engineer or a session musician

Yeah. That would be cool. I'd rather do something as my main job though with music.

Heh, I like to follow a minimal effort policy. Even though I am studying for my A Levels, I only do what is necesarry. I suppose it helps I'm quite good at blagging tests and stuff with no revision, but I generaly get through on as little work as I can.

You see, getting A Levels and becoming a scientist is only a plan B. Of course I'd like to be in a band and get rich, but deep down we all know it just won't happen. So I have the saftey net of an actual career.

I know I need to actually work to keep the saftey net, but that's all I actually work for.

I did say I was failing but I will clear that up, Im not failing as such, just my grades are not reflecting my ability.
As soon as I finish my coursework I'll be well ahead. I should Be leaving with straight A's Im gonna leave with C's and maybe a B in Science and English[possibly Product Design]
anyway my grades ARE up to scratch for the course I wanna do

Sure would be nice to have some though. What I mean is I'd prefer not to spend all my life trolling round the bars of Leeds with my battered up gear just to buy food lol.

I'd either like to get reasonably successful, like being a session musician, or have a regular job with a secure paycheck every month.

You don't seem too smart, so I'll spell it out. If you don't work in high school, then you are not going to go to college and become an electrical engineer.

OK fair enough but still that gives u no grounds to call me stupid man. My IQ is well above average but I really am soooooooooooooooooooooooo lazy at school at the moment. Tomorrow I will do my work and pull my grades up

It's sort of a strange phenomenon, if you ask the average person what their IQ is, the average response will be that their IQ is well above average.

keep telling yourself that.

but i'm pretty sure the average person has enough common sense to put this together:
do well in school = good grades and credits
good grades and credits = college
