Hey, that's pretty cool. What field of engineering are you interested in?


Computer engineering is what I do now and primarily what I'm interested in above others. I wouldn't mind going back to university though and getting electrical engineering as well though.

I can't exactly speak for everyone, but parents by choice aren't looking for what they get out of it. It's a selfless hope and contribution to the future. Choosing to have a child is a creation of love and all one hopes from it is for their success and to be loved back. It's great you want to help your parents, but don't do it out of any feelings of debt.


Oh, of course I know that.

I know they don't really expect anything in return. That's exactly why I want to help them. Certainly not because I feel indebted to them, but because I love them.

I mean, the way I see it, "Why not?"

I never planned on bending over backwards or hindering my own success for them. That's something they'd never want anyway.

Hmm, how can I explain my mentality?

Basically, if you think about it, people share their success with their spouse. Since i'm not going to have a spouse, i'd really just be hoarding my success to myself. Spending it on absolutely no one but me.

Perhaps there's merit to that if you're someone who wants a lot of stuff or who has big dreams and what not. But my only real dream is to travel. So why would I do that on my own when I can almost just as easily share it with people I love?

But i'm probably not making any sense. The important things are though:
1. It's definitely not out of obligation
2. "Why not?"
3. I think i'd rather share my success with someone I love anyway.

I would just keep programming.
void AttemptDreams()
{
bool hopesanddreams = false;
tryagain:
int randnum = rand() % 6000;
if(randnum == 42)
hopesanddreams = true;
if(!hopesanddreams)
goto tryagain;
}

I go back and forth on what I want; I think having a partner would benefit financially (even though I have zero debt & my career is steady) - but if I were to remain single for my lifetime I imagine I would work my career until about 35, basically until I could put back $250k in 401k/IRA (should take about 10 years) for retirement in the states - then sell most assets like house, etc & use the money + normal savings account, which is hopefully a few hundred grand minding no medical expenses in the next 10 years, & take a decade or so long vacation travelling the world. If I want to live cheap - South Korea does a real estate form called a “ jeonsei” contract which means “paid in full”- it requires that the tenant pays a specified sum of money to the owner or landlord (usually 30-80% of the cost to rent the property). & the best part is you get your money back when you leave assuming no damages. yeeeppp. that's correct & two-thirds of all housing in Korea is managed under the jeonsei system so it is pretty accessible and widely used. The problem is apartments often cost over $100,000 cash/deposit to just rent, but if you can afford the deposit you are essentially renting a place for free. By chance if the landlord refused to give your deposit back or did not have the money to give - you maintain ownership of the residence until the landlord does pay your deposit back in full. - Eventually retire back to the states to draw social security if it still exists & my 401k/IRA accounts if they still exist by then as well; buy some quaint condo or foreclosure somewhere nice & enjoy my days as an old man. oh, and I want a shark tank if I'm single.

Live my dream. There is no room for changing your lifestyle for compatability with another. Being single means having your choices to be compatible with your own goals and dreams.

Pretty much I want to create something that people will remember, I want to focus on creating such an idea that it would change the world one day. That requires solitude and separation from most people. So I am destined to be single until I can achieve this. You learn more when you are alone, because your mind is the only way to achieve the impossible.

I would rather observe others. It is the only way to understand your role in life. You're either someone who wants to change the world, or someone who wishes to be complacent with another.
