Life to me is like being thrust into a game that you don't want to join.

Play by your own rules then.

If non-participation makes you happy, go for it.

I've given my life meaning. I've set a goal and am sticking to it no matter what happens.
I could fall in and love then lose it all but I wouldn't care if I still got my one reason to enjoy this life.
I'm 21, life is great now, it's what I make it.
But as a teenager I can say from experience that life is only boring if you make yourself feel closed in by school, the people around you, and your parents. I say CARPE DIEM, seize the day, for it is only during my adolescence that I have any regrets.


I agree. This is a good way to see one's life.

Very unusual advice and yet it makes ten times more sense than "Grow up." or "Stop whining."

Life is a chance to rule the world! Or at least make an impact on it. That's the interesting part, thinking how I might still change people's lives even after I'm gone.

Live your life as you feel is right for you, that seems like the base requirement to be happy. My mom still watches Scooby Doo, though, so I guess that's easy for me to say, I grew up with the idea that you're never too old to enjoy what you enjoy...

Life is a series of biological and chemical functions encased in a complex system. With these functions active, we have various experiences. Most are mundane experiences; sometimes the biochemical function named "emotion" is activated through our system, which produces effects both desired and undesired. We have sensors that pick up warmth and coldness, light and dark, bitter and sweet. We can interact with other biological units; both their input and output functions and our input and output functions produce effects that affect our functions as well as the functions of others, both positively and negatively. We often save recollections of interactions with our sensors onto a "memory" function we all possess. Eventually, our biological and chemical systems will slowly deteriorate, and at some point, all of our functions will cease entirely.

Some units will attempt to complete a main specific objective at some point before their system shuts down permanently. Other units simply attempt to repetitively activate the positive aspects of the biochemical "emotion" function through one or more of the multitude of interaction methods.

I don't know if it's healthy to call people "units". We have the term "people" for a reason, why not use it?

People referring to humans....
Then what about other forms of living things...?

I would agree that unit is a bit weird in this context tho...
...Organism is the word that should be in use.

If you want something to happen, make it happen.


Damn, getting all philosophical xD That's true, but I don't think I know how to make something interesting happen-.-

There's always trial and error. Do something you haven't done before until something interesting happens.
Odds are it will take fewer tries than you would expect. :)

It is of course worth keeping in mind though, there is a reason why "May you live in interesting times" is considered a curse.

It's cyclical and it's just one big giant circle jerk.

I agree with the original post.

That's how I'm feeling at the moment, I wish something interesting would happen, like an alien invasion.

One night, I drove through the mountains at midnight in a desperate bid to break my daily routines and to find that thrill. IT was really thrilling actually. It was foggy and I never drove through mountains before... made me feel so alive.
