the thought of living the rat race for the next 40 years of my life depresses me * 5
    #521280 - 01/30/11 07:10 PM (5 years, 10 months ago)

i honestly dont think im capable of it, i havn't even really began yet, but i already feel morbidly depressed at the reality of working my life away in a dull grey lifeless enviroment.

how the fuck does everyone deal with it? i cant be the only one that feels like this.

I feel the exact same way.  The thought of going to a job I hate everyday depresses the fuck out of me.  Poker and weed ftw :bonghit:

Do you enjoy the work that you do, or are you only doing it to pay the bills?

Being self-sufficient.

Meaning, hunt your own game, grow your own food and drugs, collect your own water, collect energy (via solar panels or whatever), etc.

We don't need to be slaves

thats pretty hard to do in the UK, unless you buy a smallholding which costs £250,000 at a minimum, and keep a few livestock.

land is so expensive here:rolleyes:

I'm sure you can still grow food. Even at relatives places. Rain water collection tanks are also a very good idea.

There are 10000s of reasons why being self sufficient is / will be an absolute must. I'll only explain why if you want me to due to it being waayyy too much for most people to accept

Gotta look at it like this, you can make money working a shit job that you hate forever, or you can use that as a stepping off point to finding a job that you might even like to do, even if it pays less. That being said, nobody can make money by sitting at home and smoking bongs, unless you're Magash or famous or something.

Sir smokes it right to a point, but I can see how hard it would be to move from the London suburbs to Oxted or somewhere, try to be as self sufficient as you can. Get a rain water tank, grow as much of your own veggies and fruit as you can (good practice for growing ganja I might add) and maybe in a couple decades when your older, and have the means to live the rest of your life the way you want, you'll be able to make that choice and settle down because you'll actually know how you want to live your life since you would have experienced both the hussle and profit of city life, and he joy of a simple yet rewarding rural life, and you'll be financially able to make that choice.

Find something you enjoy doing, and you'll never work a day in your life






P.S I read this like 4 times and it the wording is still annoying me, but I'm baked and no longer care

thats some good advice, :awesomenod:

im still living with the parents at the moment and have 2 years of college left, so not too many decisions to make yet.
each lifestyle has its benefits, i want to do some traveling before i settle down, so ill have to deal with the day to day work routine for a while if i want to do anything awesome in life, like learning to hang glide :thumbup:

stoned ramblings :vaped:

Do something you enjoy doing for a living? Work to do the things you want? Find a partner you like to spend time with?

Doesn't seem that dull, grey, or bleak to me.

See, that term pedo gets thrown around a lot.
Is a 16 year old guy having sex w/a 16 year old girl a pedophile?
If not, then how is a 30 year old considered a pedophile for doing the same thing?
I think y'all need to look up the definition for pedophile.

I honestly don't understand how anyone from our generation has any reason to be depressed . Unless you live in a third world country, have an oppressive government  or some really bad traumatic stuff has happened to you. Then shit I don't blame you for feeling that way. And if this was an era before the internet blew up then I wouldn't blame you either. However, we unlike any other generation before us have so many options to have a very nice life style in our futures. If you work hard, apply the knowledge you learn during the course of your life and do the things that make you happy. Then it becomes practically impossible for you to be come depressed. Information in today's society travels in less than a second. Your life is determined by the choices that you make.

It's just how T-Rex explained and stated. Get a job that you truly love and enjoy to do and you'll never have to work a day in your life. That statement can come true for all of us currently making our way through the world. Just gotta put the time and effort in is all :wink:

Some people will say find a more pleasurable way to make more money. Yeah, good luck. When that doesn't pan out I suggest
  • don't marry a greedy cunt if you can team up with someone with your same value structure that's the way to go- think long term with marriage- personality over looks

    don't have ANY children

    keep your expenses low as possible

    take pleasure in small cheap things (like literature and music)

    learn to travel on the cheap and work temp jobs abroad

    quit any job that becomes oppressive but do it in a real friendly way that doesn't piss people off - try to live your life on your own terms without burning all your bridges and try your best to avoid making enemies

You could trip to get some ideas TrippyStoner :wink:

If you'll do this make sure you write down all the questions you want answered and keep it handy.

Reading The Secret and The Psychedelic Experience would greatly help :thumbup:

im not depressed at all, i love my life. its just the thought of working the rest of it away thats a bit depressing. i know how lucky i am to have a roof over my head, loving family, clean drinking water and regular meals. and im so grateful for these things. i just feel im going to get bored of working 5 days a week, and not really having anything special to do on the weekends.

im training to be a plumber, which is fairly enjoyable, but its not something i can say im passionate about.
i feel i could happily live the working life if i had something to look forwad to on the weekend, like going snowbaording, kayaking, or a camping trip in the wilderness or whatever :lol:

cant do these things here, so i really am considering moving out of this country after i got a couple years experience as a plumber.  canada australia and new zealand offer skilled worker visas to plumbers, so maybe its not so unrealistic to think about.
