>>16645851
Damn. Right on the money.
>>
Just ask her you pussy.

God, the rejection would've saved me at least a decade.
>>
It gets much, much better.
Go travel.

Leave everybody you know in high school right now and never talk to them ever again. Not a single one will ever be worth it.
>>
>>16645820
Learn to love yourself before you love another.
>>
Travel with friends. You won't have time for it later.
>>
He's not worth the time, money, or emotional effort. He will fuck you over, and he does not respect you as a human being. Dump him. You'll get over it and meet your future husband in a few years in college, things get way better that point on.
>>
lift you pussy
>>
-do not fuck the crazy
-dont let her make you feel like shit, she wants company
-graduate on time, that school will be good for you
-do not fuck the liar
-do not fuck the virgins
-save your real friends
-stop playing so much WoW
-GET SOME FUCKING SUN
>>
-work at school

-read 4chan already
>>
It doesn't get any better.
University is actually fucking hard and stresses you the fuck out, you still won't get a gf or lose your virginity. And your gpa will drop miserably as time goes on correlating directly with a further gain in your depression.

So yeah fuck all that shit, save yourself the misery, here are the winning lottery ticket for the first draw after you turn 19, just say fuck it and become a rich neet somewhere.
>>
Stop trying to get a girlfriend, you dont care about people.

Stop playing video games, you are addicted and think its normal bc its "fun". Meanwhile you waste your whole lifetime on something you cant make money with.

Leave the house as much as possible. Your parents drive you into the abyss of negativity. The only escape is to leave. Their interpretation of love is so wrong, you cant tell people you love them bc you think its an insult.

Start to play an instrument. You love music so much.

You avoid doing important work bc people say you are smart. Doing the work makes you smart. Great people do great things.
>>
none of these whores are worth it. dont worry about your body and face. your genetics gave you shit aesthetics but excelent health. you dont have those crazy genetic diseases that kill you or heavily disable you, use that to your advantage. focus on career, the key to hapiness lies on focusing on that. remember: women = whores not worth your lovely feelings. focus. on. career.
>>
Stop smoking weed and being lazy. You're jeopardizing your future because you don't even have a plan and you're slacking off. Your 'best friend' is incredibly toxic and you need to leave him in the dust. You've exlsrimented. You've had your fun. Now realize your fucking life starts in two years and get your shit together.
>>
if you don't want to give up on pokemon forever, immediately start making videos.
>>
You are on the right path.

You're gonna have rough patches, but you'll be a better, happier person from all those experiences.
>>
The plural of advice is advice
>>
Look after your mum. Get her checked for cancer every 6 months.
>>
Diet. Stop complaining about being fat and do something about it.
You're better than you think you are. Don't let anyone tell you that you aren't great.
Don't give up on who you are and what you like for others.
There's a limit to kindness.
>>
Oh R, you're 16 now. You're young and you think G is the love of your life. Well she's gonna rip out your heart and eat it. Then, reeling from the pain, you're gonna meet V. Don't even bother. She's as flaky in relationships as she is in friendship and you'll last about 2 weeks. And then you'll get back together with G and you think you're gonna get married and run away together but she's gonna stab you through the chest again. You'll be on speaking terms again someday though.
And also stop trying to fit into stereotypes. You don't have to cut your hair short and wear men's clothes because you like women. Save your money. You're gonna need it during college. Don't go off your meds your first quarter of college, it fucks you over. Try harder. Take better care of your skin and listen to your mother about your blackheads. And in two years, when you're my age, you're gonna fall for a boy and it's gonna confuse the hell out of you. Which boy? Well that one you met through D, you know, with the long fluffy hair (he cuts it, don't worry.) Spend more time with him, fucking text him, you two have a lot in common and don't realize it yet. And when you come home for winter break, make your move because you'll regret not doing it as you're about to board a flight to go 600 miles away from home.
>>
Your life turns to shit in your twenties because your drinking and drug use. Since I know you wont get sober now just bottom out early so you can either die or go to rehab while your young. Save yourself the time.
>>
Don't change for your friends they will fuck you over so hard and use you. Keep fucking girls and don't fall in love. Fuck that shit nothing but drama and fights in high school. Just do you and keep at it. You shocked how far you go. No more working a piece of shit job. That makes you work 50+ while you only in high school. Fuck that its just a dam job you can fine another easy. Enjoy life, it's ups and downs. Stay true to yourself.

Yeah, I got some advice for 16 year old me...

Whatever you do do NOT start playing World of Warcraft

If you do, you'll play so much it will interfere with the rest of your life. It'll cost you jobs, education, opportunities, relationships, your health and time.

So much time.

You'll end up playing over 19,000 actual ingame hours

>OVER NINETEEN THOUSAND HOURS!!!

That's almost 800 days you'll never get back

>OVER TWO FULL YEARS of your life spent on a game you'll eventually learn to hate.

If you has put that much time into work you would own your own house right now...

You fucking retard
>>
Fuck as many highschool whores as you can. It'll come in handy for your memory wank bank when youre 45+.
>>
>>16647597
Not even a man here but I can attest to wow's addiction. Those were the saddest and loneliest times of my life. I played with people who didn't really give a shit about me. That was just my friend base at the time. I was never good enough, always alone
>>
Do better in school you jackass
>>
Shut up, sit down, and study.
>>
Work out more. Soda is shit. Spend less time on the internet and video games. Apple's stock is gonna explode in a few years, get on it. And find a job in your field sooner rather than later.
>>
Work out, study hard, drop League of Legends, stop hanging out with lames, be honest with your parents, stop being such a miserable fuck, stay healthy, value your life. It might seem like your life is shitty now but it can always get worse.

You probably aren't going to suicide any time so that isn't a valid cop-out.
>>
>>16647620
I can't tell you the number of nights I spent locked in a dark room, living off of bags of ships and snacks I kept in a mini fridge at my feet.

I'd drink gallon jugs of Arizona tea and then piss in the empties so I wouldn't have to go away from keyboard. When trash day came I would have to make several trips in the night shuttling out 6 or 7 jugs filled with piss, emptying them in the gutter and then tossing the empties into trash bin - this way my family wouldn't know. This is assuming I remembered - Sometimes they piled up for a few weeks.

One summer I left my room only to shit, empty piss-bottles and restock food supply. My girlfriend came home from college and I ended it because I knew she would take up too much time.

>I even turned down break-up sex... I was raiding that night.
>>
Take regular showers, you smell vile.
Also try and find a psychiatrist for meds your ADHD, you really need it.
>>
don't smoke weed, it's not worth it, it will lure you into a decade long addiction that will be impossible to break. it will induce sexual psychosis and schizophrenia that ruin your life.
>>
>>16647597
I appreciate and agree with your advice to yourself but I don't think we can just blame a particular game. I haven't been into video games since I was 13, late 20s now, and yet I still look back on my life like "what was I doing all that time?" even though I was reading non-fiction books that are important and relevant to my interests. Still, it's hard to remember "reading a book" like we remember "hanging out with my friends that one night when..." etc. Yet, even though those memories stand out most, I still know that I would find it even more of a waste of life simply to spend time socializing just for the sake of it rather than pursuing my interests which, as it may be, leave only vague memories of doing the same thing all the time, namely reading.

I don't think we should let nostalgia dictate our lives. What happens is that we experience something and there's a chemical reaction in the brain, this leaves a deep imprint in memory, so when we're 25 we think back to that highschool crush we had, that 1 month relationship where our love hormones were all over the place, and it seems amazing. If we let that nostalgia trick us, we'll go out seeking that same thing, rather than pursuing something more meaningful or important. Often times in life, important things are not that pleasant to do, so it's harder to become hopelessly addicted to them, they require conscious will power instead to pursue, not merely giving in to instincts and addictions.

Not necessarily true, I am in college and have great friends from hs
>>
>>16646404
Prove it
>>
Don't break up with her because youre going to college next year
actually try in college
dont try to balance work and school
>>
>>16647793

>I don't think we can just blame a particular game

Whatever. World of Warcraft is the Devil.

Kidding. It could just as easily have been another game. It's me. I'm the problem. My mother is an alcoholic and my father is a compulsive gambler... We all have something.
>>
>Don't suck that dick
>I know you're curious
>Stay curious
>It's not worth it
>>
there are so many girls that want you, you won't believe it. With one in particular, I know you know. Stop being afraid of women, she is not going to eat you. If you carry on being so scaried by women you are going to lose your virginity at 25.
Stop playing videogames and watching porn the whole day. You think they are better than real life but they are just fucking up your perspective. Learn a language, play an instrument, do something for hell sake.
Ah, and about your high school...you hate it. You hate everyone in it. Why don't you go to another one? It is full of high school in your city. Dumbass.
>>
>>16645820
Start lifting now. You beautiful bastard. Oh and make friends with your Dad's friends. Particularly the blad one. You know who.
>>
Although you like the car, you dont need it and it will become a moneypit sell it before college. Open the mai regularyl, it saves you alot of money. Reduce the weed and vidya consumption during college it will safe you a couple years. After college dont force yourself on a carreerpath because it is what everyone else is doing, start your own business already, you hate working under a boss.
>>
>>16645820
do not go to that New years party
>>
You best stop drinking and smoking so much or it will literally destroy you. If you do not change over the next 5yrs you will have 3 nearly fatal car crashes all induced by alcohol one of which will involve you driving partway through someones house and ending up in their living room.
Seriously put that shit down and get back in the books you love so much. Oh and as for S hand her off to whoever will take her or that miserable bitch will be your baby mama who takes half of your paychecks every week.
>>
1. Don't cheat your way through calculus, dumbass.
2. Study for the SAT; don't just wing it.
3. Sleep with her.
4. Maybe apply to more than one college.
>>
Kill yourself before it gets worse.
>>
Hold her hand you fucking pussy
>>
-If you wait until tomorrow you'll lose her.
-Everyone lies.
-When someone pulls a gun on you, the appropriate response is literally anything but saying "What are you gonna do, shoot me?" Yes. Yes they will, dumbass.
-If it's between your friends and anything else, choose your friends.
>>

>Kill yourself before it gets worse.
THIS!! ABSOLUTELY THIS!!!
>>
Chill out man. 90% of the shit that you're stressing over means absolutely nothing. Things with mom don't get "better" as much as you think it will. Tell dad you want nothing to do with her. You think you're being mature by saying you want a relationship with her, but lying about it isn't going to make you feel better. Quit trying shit with Kelsey, she's got a boyfriend. Go out with Madeline, I know she seems like one of the girls that'll never give it up, but believe me, she definitely will. Plus, free Mexican food. Her family won't seem to care for you much until you're gone. If you want someone who will relate to you interest wise and emotionally, talk to Rachael. She's a really cool person and she's gonna be homecoming queen. Don't drop out of the drama thing, that'll get you in with her. Treat her like a lady though. Don't fucking compliment her ass, it's the best way to get her to quit talking to you. You probably already know, but Ben's going to turn into a shitbag, don't do too many favors for him, you'll never get one from him. If you get out of school on a halfday, STAY HOME!!!!! I don't care how much dad is pushing you to get a job. You'll wreck your car. Quit trying to be the responsible one of your friends. You take it too far and they eventually push you out of the group. If Dusty gives you a reason to, kick the living shit outta him, while it's legal to do so. If you do it after you turn 18, you're gonna have to hope he hits you first. He's going to grow into an asshole. Don't take Karate, you'll take it way too seriously, and piss everybody off. Keep playing guitar. Take care of Maxx, I miss him a lot. He's the one thing in this world who'll love you because of you, and will always be happy to see you. Take him for walks and play fetch with him more. And cut your damn hair, you look much better without it. It doesn't make you look metal. Girls don't like the "mane" and you're going to look like a serial killer in your dad's wedding pictures.
>>
>>16646427
I-I hope she's ok, anon
>>
Don't waste your time man. You should just go for it, because your position would be a hell of a lot better than it is now. Also don't post anything stupid on social media. You'll regret it big time.
>>
Go on MySpace and find a guy named ARB. Talk to him about Type O Negative. Marry him when you're 21, and have his kids by 25. Then live happily ever after.
>>
Yo, Hunter, you need to drop the bitch. I know things you don't know so JUST DO IT (you'll get the joke when Shia becomes popular). I know you're starving at home but be stronger. Maybe it's been 3 days since you've had food but fight through it, even if your head feels like it might split open from having not eaten. Just take the free lunches, you asshole! Fuck, go in for the free breakfast every day so you can focus on the future and not your cheating girlfriend. You're a smart kid. You always were. You don't know how hard life will be, even with military "benefits." Your junior and senior years will be phenomenal GPA wise but straighten up before no university will accept you, even if you are an AP scholar and turn that 1.2 GPA into a 3.1 by the end if it. The world is circular in how you qualify for a career and you have to play by the rules.
>>
>>16645820
Stop Sarah from killing her self. Get on anti depressants. Get anti androgens. Fuck society and be yourself.
