>>593786943 No - you get involved in things as you grow up and time just slips away. Jobs are major time sucks. You'll be lying on your deathbed realizing that half you life was spent staring at cubicle walls. Family and kids to, although they have at least some chance of providing happiness. Or total misery.
>Going to be 24 next month >Still feels like I'm 16 personality wise not maturity and the world moves so fast
All I did was 16 years of my life was play video games,look at porn,and watch anime. I don't feel that different than I did back when I was a teenager. When you become an adult, nobody really cares what you do with your life anymore you just go with the flow.
>>593786450 it gets worse when you have a kid -- then *blink* your kid just went from a baby to heading off to college and you are fucking 50 and don't know what to do with yourself (unless you're like my friend who's a richfag, then you just travel all over the world, get season tickets to two different sports, etc. -- fucking hate him)
>>593786450 It feels like that after the fact, sure. And there's volumes written about how our perception of time changes as we get older.
But that doesn't change the fact that it took you 9 years to get there. And time plods along at 60 seconds an hour, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year for all people.
Look, this is just my little philosophy so take it or leave it as you will but I tend to think people who spend what time they have being afraid of how much has passed haven't been spending their lives in a worthwhile way. A life spent diligently tending to your money, your craft, your hobbies, your loved ones, self improvement, etc etc leaves little time for existential fears. That "oh god I'm dying" thing you're doing is an alarm going off trying to signal that you need to make some changes.
Or you know, do what you've always done and wind up a mess of PTSD like anxiety attacks because you wasted your life worrying about having wasted your life. You have to live in your fucked up brain, not me, so make a decision and stick with it. But above all, quit your bitching.
daily drinking alcohol is bullshit. it can ruin more than it can do good. the only thing that can change something is changing the thoughts and using the time. nobody can stop it but everybody can use it and when you use it right you dont feel like you waste it. and thats the only way to not feel horrible about it when it passes....
>>593790290 There are online tutorials on how to meditate. When I was doing it I set up an alarm clock for 20 minutes, went into a quiet room and sat on the floor with my eyes closed, focusing entirely on the sound of my breathing, imagining it was the sound of the ocean.
>>593790160 Thoughts like that, yes >>593790290 There are multiple ways to meditate but most of them are about NOT thinking, focusing on something instead.
I like to keep it simple. I just sit in a semi lotus position in the sofa, close my eyes and focus on doing deep breaths. Every time a thought pops up, I just discard it and put my focus back on the breathing
About 10 minutes is enough for me to clear my head and stop obsessing over every negative thing ever.
>>593786450 That's why you have to get your body preserved and your consciousness stored in a computer. They (biologists) think that we'll have that technology before 2060. Hold on a little longer, OP.
>>593786450 “It's being here now that's important. There's no past and there's no future. Time is a very misleading thing. All there is ever, is the now. We can gain experience from the past, but we can't relive it; and we can hope for the future, but we don't know if there is one.” ― George Harrison
Man time is, like, perception, dude. You, like, try and think of the past, and, like, it would suck if, like, you experienced it all again when you, like, thought about it...so...I don't want to live the past 24 years every time I, like, think about the biscuit I just ate...so, like, that's good. Live in the moment, and, like, for now and forever.
Yeah man. When I turned 28, my taste in almost everything changed. I don't even think I'm the same person I was before. I just look the same now with more wrinkles. Then next thing I know I'm 31. Failed marriage even though I waited until I was 27 thinking it would make any difference if I waited until I am older. No kids. I'm truly alone. There are some times when I just get this breath taking soul crushing panic that sets in affirming I will be alone for the rest of my days. Now I drink a lot more than I should and spend my time hanging out with cam whores. At least I know there are no strings attached and if I crave attention I give them money, the same money that my ex would be taking anyway.
I want to go outside but I think I will just sit in my room and stare at my closed blinds.
I use my android phone for appointments, meetings, and work stuff.
Everything else I enjoy while it's happening, avoid over-photographing/over-recording things and just experience them.
I used to be obsessed with holding onto every single memory then I realized I should just spend that time hanging out with people I think are awesome and stop worrying about having a wealth of memories and just focus in the now.
Did wonders for my depression and I don't really find myself over-planning things anymore either.
>>593796391 >>593796391 Years ago I used to record punk bands i'd go to see using a mini DAT and a really good stealth mic.
I have recordings of some once-in-a-lifetime shows but I had to stand in the back and not really enjoy the show to catch the recordings.
After a while I realized I was giving up being in the pit, getting stoned int he bathroom, doing shots at the bar, and all the fun shit I couldhave doing because I was obsessed with immortalizing these musical memories to always have.
Eventually said fuck it, left the DAT at home and drank some green dragon with my friends, got shitfaced on whiskey on the walk to the show, and took off my shirt and sang on stage fat and shirtless with the circle jerks and stagedived onto a bunch of terrified 13 year old girls. never woulda did that if I was babying some mini-DAT recorder.
I'd like to think that night made me look at my life and how I was living on safety mode so I'd have pleasant memories and I said fuck it. Joined a band again, switched jobs because the one I had was sucking the life out of me, and in the process re-connected with an awesome girl I've been with for 6 years now.
TL;DR - I stopped being a bitch and trying to archive my life
There's nothing wrong with being an adult and enjoying things, justs top looking for that magic in old games you had when you were a kid, it's different now.
I guarantee (and confirm firsthand) that there's so many good games and stuff coming out now, Just be interested in what you like because you like it, not because you have a longing for how the series used to be.
My comicbros get super bitter all the time about changes with old characters, I tell them - read some new stuff then, it's obviously different and changed in the way you don't like it, move on to something else, yeah it sucks but life is kind of like that, when shit is stale and unrecoverable, just move onto a new series.
you really can't be a fan boy about your interests or you're going to be miserable. Be a little bit of a noob somewhere else and you'll feel that spark of interest.
