28 is not too late, you can still do everything.
Piece of advice: forget about acomplishments society or other people pressure you to acomplish.
Your goal in life should be to be happy and enjoy the time you have in this planet.
If you enjoyed all that time of playing vidya/watching TV etc. it was all worth it.
Sure it sucks to not have a gf but having a gf doesn't = happyness, and there's a million things in this world that can make you happy.
If you do want a gf, or a good job or whatever and it's you who want it, you just need to put in the work and suffer to get the reward later, it's all up to you though and want you want to do in this life.
If being a loser is enjoying life and doing whatever you want, I'd gladly take that adjective from society.
Yes, I know they say "life isn't a race" but stagnation stinks. Escapism seems to only work for so long. Eventually you realize you are going nowhere, and that you missed out on a lot of things, and that you can never go back or make up for lost time. Can you make up for lost time?
I guess you said 28 is not too late but it feels like it.
you've had sex, haven't you?
I dunno. Seems worth it. I want to feel something again.
Speed is the one trick that does it. I really like riding my road bike, so a motorcycle should be even more fun. Might try skydiving if riding a motorcycle fast becomes boring.
I didn't even get close to getting my shit together until I was 28. Now I'm 36, employed in a job I enjoy that doesn't feel like meaningless slog, married, own a house, and generally feel content.
Fuck what anybody else thinks, aim realistically, focus, work hard, and you'll be fine.
>I didn't even get close to getting my shit together until I was 28.
Oh great. Feel a lot better. Did you read the subject line? Many of us are almost 30 and don't even have a goal or much experience doing anything productive. How messed up were you? Were you a permavirgin?
>aim realistically, focus, work hard, and you'll be fine
elaborate. How do we know if we are aiming realistically?
>worthless bachelor's degree
>lots of SL debt
>never had a gf
But at least I'm not wagecucking. This is important. 1 year of NEETdom is worth 3 years of wagecucking at least.
>raised by solo mother, long term unemployed, welfare, drug dependencies, psychological problems, but not a perma-virgin...
Realistic, to me, is something you could aim for achieve in 5 years of hard work and commitment - not becoming an astronaut or a rockstar
What do you do now?
I considered going into law or trying to get a job in the State Department, but that seems out of reach for a borderline autist. I'd like to make a lot of money too- always have - and law doesn't seem like a good way to make lots of bucks right now.
>Never had a job
>Drink every night
>Spent 3 years as a shut in
This past year i have been going back to the outside world due to shitty "work ready programs". It dose not get better.
