Whenever you were.... 10 years younger, did you imagine ending up where you are now? Did you accomplish all the goals you thought you would accomplish?

Are you happy, content or rather change some things about your life?

While not 10 years ago, I never really cared to go to school, I knew my interests and I knew my hobbies. Family + Technology + Endless thirst for Law/History knowledge was all I cared for as a preteen even. And it still kinda holds up right now.

I imagined myself having multiple children at this point, and not really being in the work force(I don't really like it). I have many skills I do not get to use because I didn't end up where I thought I was going too. I learned A TON of worthless homemaking skills that are pointless since I work 10+ hours a day. Sometimes 12.

I wanted to have children since I was 17. I'm about to be 20. I will probably get really depressed if I'm 23-25 and still with no kids. shrugs.

As far as how close I am to how I imagined I'd be at this point. It's a fucking 0/10. Lol

I got two jobs, no potential mates, and I'm STILL classified as a sociopath because of shut that happened last year. Fuck.

Well! How about you? Is your life close to what you thought it'd at this point? Are you happy with your life?

I'm happy with my life until I think about how I went astray from my path. Pushing 20 and I'm starting to feel like an old hag since I got accustomed to hanging out with high school/college girls.

I pictured being normal and making money, essentially.

I ended up being a fuckin' introverted as all hell. I locked myself in my room for years on end playing video games, questioning the walls of my room and shitposting. I fucking love my life. I did manage to get a boyfriend and make money, so that's something actually relevant to what I'd thought it be. Hell of a lot better than the bullshit I conjured up.

You've been there since I was 7!

Can you tell me how life was back when gas was cheap and there wasn't too much air in a bag of chips?!

A lot simpler and a lot cheaper. You could see a movie and get snacks for just a few dollars. Now it's around 15-20 for that bs. Though my first 18 years were spent in the ghetto until I got a full ride to a university so my life differed greatly compared to the average American child.

This is a really good question.

I did not imagine myself being where I am right now; I did not accomplish what I expected to accomplish, but I did accomplish other things, that I think surpassed what I had originally planned. In retrospective, I had some rather foolish goals based on my ignorance of the bigger picture that was my life, as I understand it.

They (things that I accomplished) may be humble goals, but they are worth a lot to me. The thing is, I usually tried to achieve something, realized that at that current time it was impossible, and then forgot about it or let it go. And when I realized it, a few years later, I had already accomplished my objectives without being aware of it, like a natural flow of things.

One of the things that surprised me quite a bit is how some people and me were close to certain death several times, and endured different kinds of suffering (and other people telling us there was no hope for this or that), and coming out of it alive by trying what was said to be of no help or the cause of more suffering. And ended up with a lot of good things in return, and newfound strength, befriending people I would have never thought I would sympathize with because of clashing ideologies. In fact, I think that 'conflict' of ideals was what brought us together.

I may also sound like a really petty person by saying this, but one of the most enjoyable things for me in life so far was 'doing justice' and/or getting revenge on certain people....mwahahah! It's a big saturday morning cartoon lie when they say that you feel empty inside, it feels extremely satisfying.

I am somewhat happy right now, but can definitely see some room for improvement.

Magical-Soul, may I ask why you want kids and a mate at such a young age? It's also interesting that you feel somewhat older.

I am behind schedule, but only by a little bit. I should be getting my B.D soon then I plan to travel, hopefully enter foreign exchange teaching programs. Eventually planning on getting a masters.I live on my own 7 acre lot, been fixing my house and growing my own produce. I plan to sell the property before I move it's already significantly in proved I'd imagine my profit will be significant. I have no plans for getting married or having kids senpai so don't get your hopes up.

Well, when you grow up in a shit hole the only way out is education. Kind of motivates you to make something of yourself. Robs you of a lot of things when you have to do that. Worth it in the end. Better than lying in a ditch or selling drugs like others I knew.

I wonder how the alternate you that didn't go to college is faring. I'm sure he found a decent job and is fine!

I'm happy with where I am now and I'm only excited when I look at my future.

Looking back, I wouldn't be where I am if it wasn't for that one friend in high school. Back then, if I continued saying no, I wouldn't know where I would be. He kept on asking me to join the varsity football team (was a freshman at the time) and I wasn't having any of it. At the time, I was addicted to anime, manga and anything Japanese. I guess you could say I was a weeaboo. One day, I just yes for the heck of it and for him to stop bothering me. The moment I stepped into the locker room, my life changed forever. 6 years later, I'll be playing football at the university level. My dream is to play football at the professional level, CFL or NFL, I don't care and I believe that I can make it. Thanks Luca, I'm forever grateful.

I'm a year behind where I want to be, but as long as I'm working towards it, I'm not complaining.

No. I want to be living in my dream house, which coincidently, is just up the street.
