I'm dying so fast, /b/...

Does that happen to you?

yeah welcome to my world

Change of scenery, travel a lot, do lots of different things.

>>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.
>>
>>593787136
I do.

But when I travel time flies even faster. I recently traveled 7 hours in a bus, and it felt like 2 or so. I can't get bored anymore, no matter what i do.

I could stare the wall and i could not feel boredom. Time just dissapears.

I wanted to post something but then I realize that I'm fucked up too... :/
from 10 to 15 from 15 to 20 and now im fucking 26 and I have no idea what the fuck to do with it...

Bullshit, its sound cool and you have stories to tell, but more fun=faster time so you just blink and all that time disappear :/

>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.

You 25 today?
>>
Christ, /b/. I'm going to be 32 this year. I'm not married, not seeing anyone steadily, have no kids, a shit job, and I've slowly let my overpriced studio apartment turn into a shithole.
>>
Do you guys think technology has something to do with that feeling? It's going way too fast to get acostumed to it, to enjoy it, to feel it.

When I was a kid I had the sensation that my old Game Boy would last forever. Now I play with the PS4 and it's like "ok... I don't feel anything".
>>
>>593787819
Nope. I'll be 26 in 4 months.

Maybe that's the point. Being dumb again. Not conscious anymore.

Maybe drinking alcohol in a moderate but constant way helps? Juist to feel a little bit dizzy all the time. Or something.

I'm desperate.
>>
>>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)

This might sound gay but seriously, try meditating.
It really helped me handle all my negative thoughts.
>>
>>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....
>>
>>593789884
*60 seconds a minute, 60 minutes an hour, etc etc. I've been up for 22 hours, I'm getting pretty slow here.
>>
>>593789462
That's a good idea, when I feel like my life is slipping by on my countdown to death, I love to just sit in a room and do nothing.
>>

Don't worry anon.

How do you do that? I do nothing but thinking most of the time. Doesn't seem to do much.
>>
Well I'm 30 and the last 2 were the better years of my life.
Everything's relative, shit to you usually happens because YOU let it/want it to happen.
>>
>>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.
>>
>>593790644
If I do that, I'll probably won't do anything else anymore.
>>
>>593790851
It's a huge struggle at first, you feel like it's far longer than 20 minutes. Try it. I'm sure you waste 20 minutes several times a day.
>>
>>593791671
No, I mean if I do that and it feels good I probably do it for hours.
>>
>>593791851
Nothing wrong with that, it's actually good for your health, brain, and concentration.

It'll accelerate. Each minute that passes brings another that's an increasingly smaller percentage of your overall experience.

>>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
Nah, all my time I can account for by the jobs I worked and the stuff I did between them.

I'm 33 and pretty happy. Make sure you enjoy where your life is headed otherwise you regret getting out of bed every day.

The good news for you though OP is time flew by because you enjoyed it. You don't want to remember every single day when you hate where you are or what you're doing.

Lately I enjoy myself and my memory is shit because of it.

You only get this life anyway, keep enjoying yourself OP. And if you aren't enjoying yourself, make some changes.
>>
>>593787327
Let go of time, focus on what you will leave behind.
Actually dont let go of time; make alot of plans for the future, ways of self improvement. Be the creature of the moment.

β€œIt'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.”

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'm happier forgetting unimportant stuff.

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.

I've suffered this as well. It was a bad couple of years. I didn't change much though, I think it was regular old anxiety.

On the plus side, this mindset makes people a hell of a lot more patient.

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

make some new good memories.

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.
