  1. Really all I want to do is grow up. Unfortunately, the transition into adulthood is being a huge pain in the ass. The only thing I can do is keep at it though. What is it exactly I want though? Well...

    I want a job that I feel comfortable with. Fuck that, I want a career. I'm a job that I hate and it's the kind of job that by all rights should have been out of 3-4 years ago. Serves me right for taking so long in finding one, I guess. This seems to be the real big thing though, and the one with the most obstacles. I need to get into college, but I need the money first. It's a big paradox. Should I get a second job to save up money, and hold off on college, or should I just go into college and risk going destitute? And I can't go into it blind either. I need some direction. That seems to be the hardest part. Right now I'm leaning more towards audio production than anything, mostly because music is my real main interest in life. However, I've realised that I enjoy working with people more than working alone, so I'm going to have to find exactly what combines the two the best. This should probably be the first thing I tackle.

    I want to ACT grown up. I keep finding myself doing immature selfish shit and being childishly lazy all the time, and I always regret it. It's time for me to be a responsible adult, to get into action, and be a respectable person. I can't really get anywhere if I keep pissing people off and keep sitting around doing nothing.

    I want a home. Where I'm living does not feel like home. It's some shelter I've been living in the last year and a half. From day one I've been telling myself I will move out as soon as I can. I haven't even unpacked fully yet. I need to get serious about moving on with my life, get all my shit sorted out, and get somewhere where I'm comfortable. This is the one aspect I've actually made progress on, though I've been in a slump lately, and I blame the weather, the cold, and my apparent Seasonal Affective Disorder. Of course, this isn't helped by my laziness in telling the landlords to fix the heater. And while I'm at it, I should probably tell them about the assholes upstairs and their fucking around all hours of the night.

    I want religion. Yeah, I'm as shocked as you are, but this one is just tentative anyway. I'm at peace with my own beliefs, but sometimes I feel I'm all alone in this world when it comes to them and that I just need to share them or something. I've been wanting to go back the the Unitarian Fellowship that I went to as a kid for a while now. It would also be nice to have somewhere to go once a week to put a bit of closure to each week. I'd like to go back, just to see what they offer, though I'd feel too weird going there alone. I'd also need a Sunday morning off every once in a while. :/

    I want a family. This one just looks like a long shot now, nearly impossible. Maybe if I improve one or two other things, I'll be on that path. Oh, life...

    I'd like to get to all these things someday. I'm getting old, too old for where I am with my life right now, anyway. I'd ask for help, but independence is also something i need for my maturity. Instead, I shall ask for...advice. I'd like your advice. Somehow, I think asking for advice here is a bad idea, but what the Hell. I posted this three other places anyway.

      I think that's one thing I really hate about my job. I break even every month and never gain any kind of savings.

      My wife and I are in the same situation now. It's been a huge motivation to apply for school. Not only will I be making more money when I get out, I'll actually be doing something I enjoy. I don't care how much debt it puts me in. We want to eventually be able to afford a house. Retail isn't going to get us there.

      My sister got married with four kids when she was 24, no college, no degree and no plans on what she wants to do in the future. She now works at a fast food restraunt making minimum wage and no longer has time to go to school as she has to pay full attention to her family. Hell she doesn't even have time to do classes online. Always plan what you want to do and stick with it.

      Yeah, there's no way in hell my wife and I are having kids any time soon. So many doors would close, it's not even funny.

      Have you looked into the trades? It doesn't have the prestige of going to college, but I have relatives who work a trade and they are very happy with their lives. There is always demand for tradesmen and they are actually paid quite well, certainly better than you will make as a peon in the retail or service industry. You can raise a family with the money they make.

      It is kind of like college in that you must get trained before you can be certified, but unlike college you take an apprenticeship where you are paid (not a lot, but almost certainly more than you are making right now).

      Obviously you need to follow where your heart takes you, but I thought I would just throw that out there as an option to escaping the wage-slave cycle.

      Oh, and also Danarchy, I'd say go to school and earn a good education. Its best to be prepared in something than to go out in the real world without anything to back you up.

      Yeah, I know.

      Well like I said, that's more of a long-term thing than anything. I want it eventually, but if I can't get a girlfriend in the next 5 years, then I probably never will have any of that. :/
