wow, a lot of people really do have shallow goals. fairly materialistic. nothing horrible about that, but still. it's very hallow. the kind of useless people that can be hunted to help lower the population, or die the next day and it'd make little difference.

basou and mauz are probably the only ones i've heard who has a more real kind of priority. not something hollow like money and other such things within society.

then again, we gotta keep on topic here, jess asked for current priority, not necessarily long term goal.


I take offense to this post.

How dare you judge me like that, because I do not overtly state some pleasing to read faux-spiritualist self improvement drivel, refining ones mind, and strengthening ones moral outlook is a day by day process. No arbitrary target can be set, no one path can be espoused above all others.

Every mans every day is an opportunity for improvement, be it mental or whatever, how can you say that one mans mission to live his life in a 9-5 job, has any less worth than one that is spent studying theology at a university. You are being the very epitome of elitist, and it irks me somewhat.


Should i take offense to this? I do exactly what i said, more so than you'll ever know.



It was not directed at you but Titan, it did touch on your post I guess, but I wrote it because it seemed like what Titan was looking for, and it's something that is very easy to write and very difficult to live up to.

sounds cliche (a la naruto) but, dying with a smile on one's face does sound like a pleasing notion

I've heard so many bad stories about lotto winners. Ruining families with people asking for money. People following them around. Oftentimes the winners don't understand how to manage money so they lose much of it poorly, etc. Might want to re think this.


Lottery winners… or losers
Instead, learn from some people who have actually won lotteries. Here are a few, courtesy of Bankrate.com:

* Evelyn Adams, something of a statistical freak, won the New Jersey lottery twice, in 1985 and 1986. (Notice that she hasn't won lately? She must have learned something and stopped playing.) Her total take was $5.4 million. What does she have to show for it now? Zippo. She lives in a trailer and recounts that, "Everybody wanted my money. Everybody had their hand out." Her own hand was out, too, at gambling venues.

* In 1988, William "Bud" Post won $16.2 million in the Pennsylvania lottery. Says the man who, after declaring bankruptcy, now lives on Social Security and food stamps: "I wish it never happened. It was totally a nightmare." (These quotations are real.)

* Willie Hurt won $3.1 million in 1989. "Two years later he was broke and charged with murder. His lawyer says Hurt spent his fortune on a divorce and crack cocaine."

* Janite Lee was unlucky enough to win an $18 million jackpot in 1993. She shared her wealth with many charitable organizations, but before a decade had passed, she had filed for bankruptcy and had just $700 in the bank.

My main priority

Is just to live life as freely as I can.

I only have two responibilites, school and taking care of the ones I love most.

Other than that, I just need to have a good time and focus on my writing.
