    Default Is it me, or is it an EP thing?!?

    `
    I'm 27, and, in many ways, refuse to "grow up".

    And by "grow up" I mean, settle down into an occupation, an academic field, or, I dunno, do such stifling things as my taxes. :/

    I'm a perpetual child, and I CAN'T STAND doing things that I do not LOVE!!!!

    At this point, I have accumulated over 140 credits but have yet to get my B.A.

    I need to feel INSPIRED in order to really do anything, seriously, I do.

    Yeah, and I am indolent, too.

    le sigh...

    Why can't I focus on ONE THING, why must I constantly get side-tracked and distracted!?!?!?

    I DON'T KNOW WHAT I WANT TO BE WHEN I "GROW UP"

    And, I'm not ashamed to admit it.

    But, I think... somehow, someway, I need to become more responsible.

    But how?!?!?

    I just want to be happy, pursue things I love, and, in a small way, make the world a better place.

    I want to continue to explore and learn and absorb new things, and live life to the fullest, but alas, that dreaded reality-factor comes in.

    Having to pay bills and shit.

    It's all about the path, right?

    The journey, the process...

    But, am I aimless?!?!?

    Doomed to go nowhere?!!?

    I do not have a set destination.

    I just know what feels right, when it feels right.

    Who can relate?!?!

    Can you relate??!?

    I think I may need help.

    Do I need help!??!

    Any responses would be greatly appreciated.

    With love and respect,

    -SS

    I have the same problem except for the grow up part, mainly because I am more mature beyond my years.

    I just want to learn everything and experience everything.

    Do you write down your goals in a book and try to make some effort in reaching them?

    Imagine tonight was your last night to live.
    Would you be happy with what you have done with your life?

    You owe me an apology, pal.

    I'm trying to help a friend.

    I don't know.

    It's so day to day, mood dependent.

    Sometimes I feel like a failure, a fallen angel, a fuck up to the umpteenth degree, and, other times, I feel as though I've been living my life as authentic and real as can possibly be.

    I have seized many days.

    But, what have I *done*?

    What have I accomplished?

    Not much.

    Perhaps, I am a master of mediocrity.

    A sorceress of solitude.

    A nobody.

    A somebody.

    Another human being trying to fight the fight, live the *right* life, I dunno.

    I just feel as though I'm disappointing some people who love me, who think I'm not reaching my potential.

    Harumph!

    I do not know.

    :/

    Yeah, I do think it's kinda a P thing.

    I score in the 80% range regarding my P-ness, so yeah, who knew being so well endowed could be so problematic.

    And, yes, you are a kindred. (Your avvy speaks to me)

    It is, it is, but what about paying bills!?!??

    Reading and writing and playing and daydreaming doesn't exactly pay for dental and healthcare.

    What's ironic, is that, I too, am very mature, in some ways.

    I have been told many times since I was a child that I was an old soul.

    Paradoxically, I feel so young and old at the same time. :/

    Do you write down your goals in a book and try to make some effort in reaching them?

    No, my goals are kind of broad, esoteric, metaphysical and vague, I have them written in my blog, will go check and post, though.

    Ugh, there's the rub!!!!

    I am an autodidact, I love to learn for the sake of learning, not for the sake of getting a degree, or some other bullshit like that.

    And get serious about what!?!?

    I think you're on to something, but...

    DNC!!!

    Read post #9, that was directed towards your question.

    I don't think he was being cruel.

    I am glad to see you back on the boards, I've missed you!!!
