So, are you one of those people who do not have any goals, dreams, or aspirations in your life? You kind of have nothing going for you at the moment or at all.


What do you think?

Yes. I'm literally a living waste of oxygen. I should donate all of my organs to someone that would make better use of them.

I had goals and aspirations but im physically unable to follow my intended dream career. So now im just meditating on my next move. Fortunately for me I dont have any obligations like kids or anything, so theres no rush.

I don't think the Coast Guard and Naval would be too happy seeing a guy in a kayak 25 miles off San Diego because he got the sudden urge to paddle because the weather and ocean looked nice.

My dreams died, but the urges to do stupid shit still remains. Not good for my age.

I'd say yes. I mean i wasn't always like that in each and every way. But i was never one of those people that knew what i wanted to be that had a set goal and was full of ambition.
I think some of that was from being weak minded/having self doubt, lack of confidence and being shy. Probably also from being a bit of a follower in some ways and also over thinking things and indecision.(and weed)
Although the weak mindedness and shyness is pretty much gone, the indecision is strong..

Maybe not being close to my dad back in the day and hanging out with the wrong sort of people contributed also.
But i did used to play sport and get good grades for a while there.
I did leave my last job and get a much better job and felt like my life was really improving. But it's been in a bit of a stale state for a while.

I feel like i took several big leaps forward but then a couple of steps back and i will soon find myself in a situation where i need to make up my mind and change is coming.

But yeah at 36 i feel like with some things its too late now. Things such as certian levels of education or certain careers or being a home owner and a family man.

I do envy people who never had the problems of self doubt or indecision. Or that somehow just knew what they wanted to be from a very young age.
I guess for most "normal" people alot of things just fall into place. But really you need to go out and make things happen. I've had large periods in my life where i just continued on going through the motions. And that isn't all bad. But yes i guess that is a sign of lacking goals and lacking ambition.
But when you've got bills to pay a steady job can feel like enough sometimes. I guess.

My only desire is for my people to be free to shitpost and farm their memes in peace.

Why would they care? It is your privelage to do so, and you pay taxes to make sure that they are there to rescue you.

The aspirations I had were not realistic. Jobs with creative writing for instance are next to impossible to have a steady income with, if any income. I am deathly afraid of school too, so that makes it harder to get a respectable job. I still have nightmares about school sometimes. I tried becoming a vet tech and that failed miserably and quickly, with financial issues to follow. So now I'm even more afraid of going to school. I've kind of accepted at this point that I won't get any fulfilling job and I'll just slowly rise up the retail ladder.

I always set new goals, new aspirations...
I'll jump into a new field, start a new project, or move to a new location in a heartbeat.

Although, sometimes my girlfriend does set me back (for example, she's not keen on me modding my drone, or building human-sized robots, or working on an AI that has been "taught" that humans are evil.). But hey, there are pros and cons of a relationship - so I'm willing to sacrifice those projects for an alternative, yet similar, ones.

I have to say that I've always had doubts about what I wanted to do when I "got older" (or "grew up" - like that ever really happened). The only thing that's really left on my "bucket list" is to start my own company. Most of my friends and family have always suggested I should have my own company. The issue is what - do I implement the AI I've been working on for over a decade into some practical way that AI is being used these days? Do I start a bakery (which was one of my earlier "dreams")? Do I go back to the lab and tinker with computer hardware again? I mean... that's where my main indecision comes from. Starting an IT-based company sounds like easy work (from the outside) but I've lived through startups - it's always an uphill battle and it's seldom that you become the next Google, Facebook, Snapchat, Instagram, Uber/Lyft ... or any other company that either hit it big or got bought out for more than they're worth. I'll figure it all out one day - just not today.

I would describe myself as a dull person (like this ?). I don't do anything out of extraordinary, I don't even leave my home on weekends, for me there's nothing to do out there.

However I have some hobbies. I started playing piano 8 months ago. I am able to play an excerpt of Fur Elise which is not bad. I would like to keep improving so I can play some songs that I like, not anything crazy nor serious. It's a hobbie which I don't dedicate loads of time to after all.

Like ninjitsuko I also want to open my own company. This dream only came to be last year. I never thought that one day I would even have the guts to talk about opening a company. I know exactly what I am going to do. It's something that is outside of my area of comfort but not particularly difficult. I don't know what will happen though. Will I be successful, will I quit after the first sale?

I guess it will depend on me. I hope I give it a try at least...

For now I am concerned about getting enough money to jump into that step.
