I ask this question because this summer is my last summer before I go away for a higher education. In this, my parents are forcing me to work for this program that I really dislike very deeply because it's about something that I really dislike doing, and I have to reside in a terrible neighborhood. This program is really making me hate my life, not that I don't have any hope for the future, because I do. But is anyone else beginning to hate their life as of now?

Actually, lately things have been going really well for me. But bad things keep happening to everyone around me, so that's been making me feel kind of bad.

I still haven't met anyone since my ex-fiancee and I broke up back in October, but things are otherwise decent. My job is good and I have many creative projects. It's not the most glamorous time, but it's not a bad one either.

Well, let's see…

My dad is having heart problems, and most likely has to get some kind of surgery done. All while that, my mom is freaking out over it, worrying herself to death, and keeps fighting with my dad. Thus, making him more stressed out, increasing his blood pressure, and giving him more heart problems.

Pretty much any time I go for a girl, something happens, and I end up getting f'ed over. I end up falling for them hard, something happens, and then I get hurt bad.

But, I suppose I have to keep my head up. I'm still young yet. And I just have to make things work.

I wouldn't say I hate my life anymore. I'm trying to come to terms with a lot of shit. I've started to see existence as more of an abstract concept and I've sort of detached from my role in life, which means I don't have to feel connected emotionally to anything. It's liberating, in a way. Whenever I feel unhappy, I just remember that what I think to be myself is nothing but a conglomeration of particles in a single endless entity, so I can never truly “die”. Right now, I'm somewhere between total existentialism and Nirvana.
I am so happy to finally be back home

Actually i'm just starting to get my shit in order/get my life back together. I've picked a real degree to get, my teeth are near perfect besides that shitty wisdom tooth glarblefgf, and my hair is growing out again from the last terrible terrible haircut i suffered. (goddamn blind gay bastard one day i shall end you! :gem: ) Also my art skills are improving steadily and i get many compliments on my lineart(something i never got before)

Romance wise my life sucks ass. I've given up on finding it for now, but if it comes i'll be ready.

I still have this delusional nagging in the back of my mind that i'm destined to do some great worth-while thing in my life, and maybe i am, but as far as i'm concerned everyone thinks this way at some point.

Well I was hating my life at the begining of summer. I couldn't find a job to help pay bills, Doctors said my mom wouldn't be able to get anything from her work related injury, My rich uncle said he wouldn't help me with college expense and I should find a job instead, I don't have a GF and I thought I failed a class.

But now its alright. Found out I got 3.4 and I basicly decided screw my family I'll just go into debt with loans if I have too. Also hangin out with friends helps.

I'm going through a long period where things aren't going right for me. My mom has been having plenty of health issues including heart problems. I haven't found Miss Right. And my current job sucks hard. But I keep telling myself that things will get better soon. Never give up.

My life is in a good place. :)
I just wish I was advancing faster… I don't like just hanging fire with things even if it's because I'm in a good situation, I want to be improving my situation!

It's like when you're playing a real time strategy game- All your bases are well guarded with sentry turrets, you've got a good army of soldiers and tanks ready to defend against any attacks or attack someone else if needed, and your mines are just piling up resources.
But at the moment you've got nothing to do with all those extra resources because you're against all the building caps for everything! You shouldn't really go off and invade because your troops and tanks aren't at a high enough level and you can't upgrade them to that level until you've finished some time consuming research that's taking forever to complete…

Truthfully, you could probably mount a good invasion, but without you're guys being high level it's a really risky proposal and you could lose them all- which would be fatal if your base was then to come under attack. So instead you just sit around piling up resources and exploring while you wait…

Hahahaha… RTS analogy. :)
I haven't played an RTS in YEARS.

I dunno things are looking up for me these days… and none too soon neither, I'll be thirty in a few months…

I'm really enjoying writing and drawing my comic at the moment, even got a side project in the works… I'm spending more time with my daughter after hiring a lawyer and telling my ex to pull her head in the legal way (instead of resorting to swearing and anger)… I keep messing things up with the woman of my dreams and it seems that everytime I screw up she bounces back to me and things were stronger than before… yep, all you grumpy motherfuckers can suck it up and kiss my merry Marmite loving arse!

I have huge discounts on my favorite paints and supplies from my job, plenty of money for the time being, even if it's not as much as I wanted it's decent enough, a good-looking nice girlfriend, a gallery to put my work in and a decent car to drive. I do have a few health issues from painting and being overweight and I still haven't found a place to live for the next year of school, but that's life. All good with the bad. Heck, I woke up on someone's back porch the other night, but it was the best night of sleep I've had in a couple months.

Play command and conquer: Zero Hour.

There are no unit caps (you can make units as long as you have the cash to do it) and your units wont level up unless they get combat experience. Very few upgrades.

All that matters in that game is the CASH, THE CASH, and THE CASH.

If you got alot of cash while you cut off your enemy's supply lines (many ways to do it but my favorite tactic is blockading them), the game is all yours.

You'll love it.

:)



But before this goes into a topic about video games, I don't really think we should sit around and feel sorry for ourselves and think that there's no hope for the future.

This is an interesting time to live in.

We have a world thats ALWAYS on the brink of a nuclear confrontation (but most of the time its just saber rattling on ALL SIDES) and a world that is headed towards the direction of a total police-state takeover and the destruction of all liberty.

On a low level, I think this sucks.

But on a deeper level I think this is a fun time to live in.

lol!

- Vince Lombardi

My motto was always to keep swinging. Whether I was in a slump or feeling badly or having trouble off the field, the only thing to do was keep swinging
- Hank Aaron

I’ve always made a total effort, even when the odds seemed entirely against me. I never quit trying; I never felt that I didn’t have a chance to win.
- Arnold Palmer

My greatest point is my persistence. I never give up in a match. However down I am, I fight until the last ball. My list of matches shows that I have turned a great many so-called irretrievable defeats into victories.
- Bjorn Borg

Continuous excellent effort, not maximum strength or superior IQ, is the key to unlocking your potential as an achiever.

Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan ‘Press On’ has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.
-Calvin Coolidge

The power to shape the future is earned through persistence. No other quality is as essential to success. It is the sandpaper that breaks down all resistance and sweeps away all obstacles. It is the ability to move mountains one grain of sand at a time.
- Calvin Coolidge

I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.
- Thomas Edison

Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.
- Thomas Edison

Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.
- Thomas Edison

Sticking to it is the genius! Any other bright-minded fellow can accomplish just as much as I did if he will stick like hell and remember nothing that’s any good works by itself. You got to make the damn thing work. I’ll never give up, for I may have a streak of luck before I die.
- Thomas Edison

The three great essentials to achieving anything worthwhile are; first, hard work, second, stick-to-it-iveness, and third, common sense.
- Thomas Edison

Nearly every man who develops an idea works at it up to the point where it looks impossible, and then gets discouraged. That’s not the place to become discouraged.
- Thomas Edison

It’s not than I’m so smart, it’s just that I stay with problems longer.
- Albert Einstein

In the middle of a difficulty lies opportunity.
- Albert Einstein

When one door closes another one opens; but we so often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door, that we do not see the ones which open for us.

Never consider the possibility of failure; as long as you persist, you will be successful.
- Brian Tracy

Our greatest glory is not in never failing, but in rising up every time we fail.

When you get in a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hold on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn.
- Harriet Beecher Stowe

With ordinary talents and extraordinary perseverance, all things are attainable.
- Sir Thomas Fowell Buxton

If you want to get somewhere you have to know where you want to go and how to get there. Then never, never, never give up.
- Norman Vincent Peale

Great works are performed not by strength, but perseverance.
- Samuel Johnson

Your biggest break can come from never quitting. Being at the right place at the right time can only happen when you keep moving toward the next opportunity.
- Arthur Pine

All great masters are chiefly distinguished by the power of adding a second, a third, and perhaps a fourth step in a continuous line. Many a man has taken the first step. With every additional step you enhance immensely the value of your first.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson

For now you know one of the greatest principles of success; if you persist long enough you will win.
- Og Mandino

I will persist until I succeed. Always will I take another step. If that is of no avail I will take another, and yet another. In truth, one step at a time is not too difficult… I know that small attempts, repeated, will complete any undertaking.
- Og Mandino

Persistent people begin their success where others end in failures.
- Edward Eggleston

We can do anything we want as long as we stick to it long enough.
- Hellen Keller

What doesn’t kill me makes me stronger.

That which we persist in doing becomes easier – not that the nature of the task has changed, but our ability to do has increased.

People of mediocre ability sometimes achieve outstanding success because they don’t know when to quit. Most people succeed because they are determined to.
- George E. Allen

Persevere and get it done.
- George Allen

The majority of people are ready to throw their aims and purposes overboard, and give up at the first sign of opposition or misfortune. A few carry on DESPITE all opposition, until they attain their goal . . . . There may be no heroic connotation to the word persistence, but the quality is to the character of man what carbon is to steel.
- Napoleon Hill

Luck favors the persistent. This simple truth is a fundamental cornerstone of successful company builders. The builders of visionary companies were highly persistent, living to the motto: Never, never, never give up.

Let perseverance be your engine and hope your fuel.

What we do not see, what most of us never suspect of existing, is the silent but irresistible power which comes to the rescue of those who fight on in the face of discouragement.
- Napoleon Hill

The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.
- Nelson Mandela

If I had to select one quality, one personal characteristic that I regard as being most highly correlated with success, whatever the field, I would pick the trait of persistence. Determination. The will to endure to the end, to get knocked down seventy times and get up off the floor saying, Here comes number seventy-one!
- Richard M. Devos

A hero is one who knows how to hang on one minute longer.
- Norwegian proverb

Hold on tight
To the place inside where the candle burns
And tend to the flame
Then it will always light your way
The vision seen
Was more than just a dream
And the truth will shine
Even through the darkest night
- The Voice

Thanks for those quotes. Now I'm deathly tired AND depressed… X_X

In any case, as long as I'm alive the sun may shine over the horizon one day. All I can do is keep driving forward no matter how much rain may pound on my vision, no matter how hard the wind tries to push me back…

Amazing how the wisest things were said by that quietest of American Presidents “Silent Cal” Coolidge.

Real time Strategy games (which tend to have little to do with real world war-fighting ;) ) are an interesting analogy. You pursue goals that are often an illusion. The game will beat you because you can't persist like you can on a real battlefield. Computer War games rarely let you grasp victory from the jaws of defeat. That's a problem with the random number generators, at times they're just not random enough. Not too many RTS games let you pull off the Miracle at Midway and conversely MacClellan always destroys Lee at Antietam.

To be a general you must love the army. To be a good general you must be willing to destroy that thing you love. (R.E. Lee)

Don't give me skilled general, give me a lucky general! But a truly masterful general makes his own luck. (Napoleon)

Why is the American soldier so successful? As an amatuer he doesn't know enough about war to know when he's defeated so he keeps fighting until he wins. (A German general in WWI)

“I STILL LIVE!” (John Carter of Mars' battle cry.)

As long as he survived and persisted he wouldn't fail. Edgar Rice Burroughs understood that. He was nearly at the end of a long spiral of failure when he wrote his two books. (Tarzan of the Apes and A Princess of Mars)

I'm a survivor. I used to think life was World War One trench warfare. Over the top striving for the green fields beyond and everybody drowns in the mud of Passchendale. I know now that you just have to persist because eventually you will make that breakthrough. I still live.

Eh, that's because they're about resource management. They're like a bastard mix of a management and hostile colonisation scenario using a pseudo war theme. The best way to do well is good management, not clever strategy. Usually.

I'm a bit slow with RTS games myself. I prefer the 4X games, especially the Sci Fi ones (current favorite is Galactic Civilizations II).

I thought my life would stabilized, but now it's going haywire again and it's mostly work related this time too. We got military moving in from Japan; things are going be lively with all those marines here (and my job will be harder if my experience with the Marines is any indication)…

This year hasn't been the best for a lot of people. My grandmother died of cancer a few months ago, my parents and bf don't get along and I'm fighting with both sets to try to get along. I've started Grad school and feel as though I don't know where my life is going to be anymore (once im done with it). Everyone around me is getting sick or having heart attacks. Stress from work, school, family and friends.

I'm getting along okay though. The best reasoning that I use when I feel stressed or upset is this, “This too shall pass”. I don't remember where I originally heard that, but its true. If you think about any problem you ever had, it eventually finds a way to get resolved! =)

I'm not totally satisfied with my current place in life but I think it's alright. Work takes up most of my time but I think I recognize that I'm in this really stressful period of my career so everything will change and stablize eventually.

Time is always a big issue. I want to take up drawing again but I have a hard time even socializing let alone sitting down for two hours every other day to draw. Work just took up my whole life.

(I actually had this crazy dream today about how I tried to kill myself in a method that clearly wouldn't kill anyone…and I stood there later in the dream wondering why I broke this model of the Effiel Tower. “I could have used that in an art class for still life drawing.” Apparently even in a dream where I am trying to commit suicide I still think about work.)
