My mom and aunts always joked that only cockroaches and little old ladies would survive an apocalypse. At least I know it would be an interesting time.

Unfortunately I think I would be the one to survive while my loved one do not. Death would be to great a gift. I've been watching too much Walking Dead.

I will survive with primitive technology when all hell breaks lose (I won't use arrows in an open field since they get pushed aside by wind, but I'm a decent slinger myself for hunting in breezy conditions). If this were heaven or Donald Trump heaven where everything would be too nice, then you wouldn't experience anxiety and fear to keep you striving in an apocalypse.

If Mars had lots of O2, but still has little life or terraforming, then I'll will have to eat something from this desert wasteland, even if food is scarce. Although, I could go on a low carb diet to achieve reduced appetite.

But anyway, I believe in survival of the fittest and that somebody will always be better than you. I also believe that going to camp, going outside more often and being far away from your mom's basement will help you overcome a post-apocalyptic world.

Furthermore, I want to be far away from a city and maybe become an even better slinger than Youtube username Timpa Linkosling and Balearic slinger Luis Pons Livermore.

No hope? There can be depending on the flexibility of one's moral compass

It's hard to say. Sometimes the way the world is heading makes me have little hope lol... by that i mean i dont have a huge amount of hope as it is, let alone in a situation such as mentioned in OP.
But yeah, i'd struggle, iam approaching middle age, i need my glasses (blind without them), not particularly fit, etc so it would be a struggle.
It would be a test staying positive and staying a kind person. Iam sure there would be moments of paranoia and fear and violent thoughts and such.
You'd have to be strong mentally to survive. Cant say i have a huge amount of experience in survival as far as training in how to find food and water and to start a fire and fish and set traps and grow crops and hunt and etc.
I get along with people well but there would be moments where you might have to be violent which isn't something i've often been.

I would get pleasure in a world like that though, the sjw's would actually really have real problems to worry about and they would almost certainly die out lol (couldn't resist). There be no place for political correctness anymore. Real issues would exist, no first world problems anymore. Shit, bring it on i say! :P

Lets be honest though, we'd all struggle without the internet! it would actually probably do us good to not all be on line though. Human nature and instinct would return, basic human instinct would reign over walking on egg shells like today's society.

Again, would be a challenge not being too nice or too soft but also not turning completely selfish. Survival of the fittest would apply. Kill or be killed may apply. But we'd also have to work together to make it.
