I found the inner strength to change things. I'm sorta pleased with this crazy con on my side, but hey, it could be worse, ya know?

If you can stay drunk all day, you can stay high all day.

Not a day goes by without me thinking of my father's drunken rants and how much I want to cut my dick off.


I AM THE FUCKING STRONG

I honestly wasn't trying to pry. I thought you mentioned you were a teacher in the past. Do you ever miss it?

But thanks for sharing. Good for you with the work that you do.

yes, i planned on becoming an english teacher (at the secondary level) for a year during university (even working at a school for a semester), but it was ultimately not for me and i returned to my original plans


i was a TOEIC/TOEFL tutor and i was really into it (teaching, that is) because that's how i met my girlfriend (at the time)


i never really taught (i was more of a teacher's assistant who was required to do it for university credit) and it was not a paid position


i also worked at a k-mart (in electronics), a museum (as a guide) and event center, and an ice cream shop (only two weeks) for those who might want to know


by the end of university, i just really wanted to move out of the u.s., and i did (just two months after graduation - enough time for applications, skype interviews, etc)


that's almost a biography and probably way more details than anyone needed to know about my life, but there you go

I'm not here to straighten this out, I'm quite fond of trolling myself, but I'm just pointing out the obvious. We're all happy for your life success, man

this is all too confusing for the few brain cells I have left. even if he was trolling me, it's not obvious, nor do I see any reason to be trolled. Otherwise from my perspective, you wouldn't feel the need to state it. If you're using Sekhem as a conduit to troll me, then bravo.

It's a good thread, I like the community talking about their ups and downs. You're not worth enough for me to derail it completely.

Response to Are actually happy with your life? 2019-08-11 18:56:44


in a very real way, what is happiness

I work hard, make good money, have (and take advantage of) opportunities for travel, just bought a condo in the city, have met countless very cool people all over the world often as a result of this website, and am still able to post to Newgrounds with the angry faic.


I still yearn for so much more out of life, though. So happy in the sense of grateful, but not in the sense of ultimately satisfied. I've heard that comes with age. We'll see how the middle third of my life progresses.


holy shit my newgrounds account is older than I was when I first came here.

Yes! Even though I never thought I would have the life I have today, I didn't have much expectations a just a few years ago and I'm pleasantly surprised, since I'm currently the happiest I've ever been :)

Everything is taken care of for me, and my mental illness is under control. Emotionally, I'm very content because there's nothing screwing with it now. This is the best I've ever been. Though, I have doubts about the future; I still wonder if someone like me can even amount to anything. Self esteem is fairly very neutral, which is my outlook on everything else. I'm in a more privileged spot than others now, as well. With how I'm living now, I don't deserve it because I couldn't make the most of my privileges.


All in all, I don't have a reason to have a negative stance towards my life. Everything is fine on my end
