If that's all that I'm getting out of this **** then I'm going to a third world country and starting a communist revolution. That's all I have to say on that matter.
#87 to #77 - yuukoku (10/07/2013) [-]
That's sort of the reason Communist revolts happen in the first place. Don't actually do it, though. They never end up like you hope they would.

Marriage is a choice, children are choices, getting a loan is a choice.

not everywhere marriage and children are choices
User avatar #25 to #24 - Jewssassin (10/07/2013) [-]
But the first world countries it is. This content is referring to places where they are choices.
User avatar #66 to #25 - logicstrike (10/07/2013) [-]
yeah but they are still things to consider

good luck getting a house without a loan
or a car that isn't a piece of crap

So is buying a house and living in the real world and finding a job.

Abortion or adoption.
User avatar #98 to #96 - hawaiianhappysauce (10/07/2013) [-]
They still have to carry them for 9 months. I think dying giving birth would be another concern. I think it should count.
#101 to #98 - laoflyer (10/07/2013) [-]
Yeah, I agree about carrying them. But I don't think that many women die from birth nowadays.

A loan isnt a choice when you're slowly starving to death
User avatar #28 to #27 - Jewssassin (10/07/2013) [-]
Yes it is. As my homeless-by-choice friend said to me last night "Anybody that starves in the US is ******* retarded"

Take it from a Jew, NEVER take out a loan you know you cant afford.

Lemme ask you something, have you ever sat down and had a casual conversation with a Jew, then walked away thinking "god that guy is a dick."?
User avatar #41 to #40 - satrenkotheone ONLINE (10/07/2013) [-]
My teacher said not to trust Jews because they did 9/11.

It's true. They also put Obama in power.

I'm not someone who hears a lot of these theories/stories, so I was just surprised about the Jew thing :p

The Jews caused the Black Plague.

I'm confuse
#57 to #52 - kamicerotres (10/07/2013) [-]
It's some kind of "Illuminaty type" of theory/conspiracy, that implies jews controled the world from thousands of years, and most of disasters/catastrohpies had occured at their will.

Am I the only one that thinks marriage is a positive thing?
#35 to #19 - wishanonscouldpost (10/07/2013) [-]
Marriage is a positive thing if you marry the right person. Most people **** up hard and don't.
User avatar #36 to #35 - Kairyuka ONLINE (10/07/2013) [-]
Well that should be a matter of course

There's a reason marriage rates are trending down. I don't know that I want to ever get married. At any time, half my possessions could legally be taken away, and potential children of mine could be almost stripped out of my life.
User avatar #80 to #79 - Kairyuka ONLINE (10/07/2013) [-]
Suppose you get married to someone you love and who loves you, and that you can live a nice life with?
User avatar #97 to #80 - hawaiianhappysauce (10/07/2013) [-]
90% of marriages for 90's kids and above fail. Our generation is the reason why they are going downhill. The old people and the baby boomers have a 20% fail rate. This is why 50% of all marriages end in divorce.

Overall, my advice is don't get married. I've seen relationships where I thought they were good for each other, but it turns out that the man / woman wanted out. The ones who wanted it to work are now broken and miserable. Some of them turned to drugs. One of them got screwed over big time. She dumped him, claimed he tried to kill her, sued him, got a restraining order on him, and got custody of his pet. My cousin, she got screwed over recently by her boyfriend for 7 tears. He kicked her out of the apartment and now she lives with my grandmother.

TL;DR marriage is dangerous, avoid it at all cost.
User avatar #114 to #97 - Kairyuka ONLINE (10/07/2013) [-]
But it's like... At some point you've just been happy together for so long that it's just a formality and a nice party. I fail to see how that can ruin anything
User avatar #115 to #114 - hawaiianhappysauce (10/07/2013) [-]
Well, when you get married then divorced and have to pay child support, which is spent on the step father's drugs he uses before he rapes your daughter, then you will understand.
User avatar #116 to #115 - Kairyuka ONLINE (10/07/2013) [-]
I don't plan to end up that bad.
User avatar #117 to #116 - hawaiianhappysauce (10/07/2013) [-]
Neither do most people who get married, but your partner might have other plans.
User avatar #118 to #117 - Kairyuka ONLINE (10/07/2013) [-]
No. Just no. That won't happen, I'm confident in my own honesty and my taste
User avatar #119 to #118 - hawaiianhappysauce (10/07/2013) [-]
Being confident about something doesn't make you correct.
User avatar #121 to #119 - Kairyuka ONLINE (10/07/2013) [-]
Maybe not, but I still believe my emotional maturity and the things I look for in a relationship will avoid such situations, or at least break them off before they happen. I won't get to test that idea anyways, so it doesn't matter
User avatar #156 to #121 - hawaiianhappysauce (10/08/2013) [-]
Why won't it happen my child?
User avatar #157 to #156 - Kairyuka ONLINE (10/08/2013) [-]
Why? Because no one can love me.
User avatar #184 to #157 - hawaiianhappysauce (10/08/2013) [-]
There are two types of people, those who were meant to love and those who weren't. I suggest focusing on a career instead of sulking over being unlovable.
User avatar #179 to #19 - sparkyoneonetwo (10/08/2013) [-]
" and there is no one compatible with me c:" biggest lie anyone has typed EVER!!!....

there is 7 billion ******* people in this world probably millions you are compatible with.

I never said love and effort where the same. All the effort in the world won't help if you two just don't click but most times it takes effort to find the ones where the chemistry as you put it happens. There is like trillions of ways to meet people but you gotta be willing to put the effort into meet them.
User avatar #180 to #179 - Kairyuka ONLINE (10/08/2013) [-]
I do meet people. More so than you'd probably imagine. No one cares to stay. No one gives a **** about me, not even the people who at least cares enough to claim that they care about me. I suppose it's simply in human nature to avoid me
User avatar #181 to #180 - sparkyoneonetwo (10/08/2013) [-]
Maybe they do care but they are afraid to show it. Where confident and effort comes into play. There is absolutely no one in the world that no one gives a **** about the worst criminals, shut-ins and hermits there is people that care about all them. You can be the most hated person in a whole god damn town and some people will still care about ( and I know that from personal experience.)
A lot of times people who care a lot never show it cuz they think you don't care about them.

You can't just sit around and expect to find love and from what you say that pretty much all it seems you are doing.
User avatar #182 to #181 - Kairyuka ONLINE (10/08/2013) [-]
Except I do go out. I do talk to people. I have fun and all that palaver, as much as I can, being a non-drinker in Denmark. It's just that people don't want me around. Now I used to be the kind of guy who just didn't care and forced myself onto others anyways, but I since then learned to take the hint. I mean, why burden others with my presence when they don't want it?
User avatar #183 to #182 - sparkyoneonetwo (10/08/2013) [-]
You are probably like the 1000th person from Denmark I've talked to that is a non-drinker. I've met at lest 15 of them on this site alone. Like I said there is like trillions of ways to meet people. If you ain't found people like you you clearly didn't' try that hard.
User avatar #185 to #183 - Kairyuka ONLINE (10/08/2013) [-]
Then tell me oh master of social interactions, try what, exactly? My old classmates left me without looking back, I've just recently lost some of the only people I could hang out with, due to my depressive phases, any kind of social interaction I can find now involves alcohol and I can't do that.
User avatar #186 to #185 - sparkyoneonetwo (10/08/2013) [-]
You could try one of the billion dating sites there are. A lot like a ******* **** load of people use sites like that. I've meet very many awesome people on places like that. Not even trying to date people I go to places like that to meet really cool and interesting people. I've found awesome people who live less than a block away from me. There is **** loads of free ones out there.

Or ( I don't know if you guys have places like this) go hang out at places that don't allow alcohol. If you got lots of people that drink those are fantastic places to find other non-drinkers.

or this list could go on for eternity of ways to find people.
User avatar #187 to #186 - Kairyuka ONLINE (10/08/2013) [-]
Okay I have tried dating sites. No one replied, and the site kept trying to charge me for the smallest functions, it seemed liek a big scam, really. Also the chances of meeting someone from Århus, Denmark who are equally insane as me are miniscule to begin with.
And there are no such places. It's Denmark.
User avatar #188 to #187 - sparkyoneonetwo (10/08/2013) [-]
"No one replied," You either didn't send a single message to anyone or you are straight up laying right now unless it was they type of site that has no free membership at all. I could pick any free dating site ever meet at lest 10 new people in day if you actually send messages to people. You can go with a totally blank profile and still meet tons of people. According to Google where you live has over 300,000 people the chances that there is someone like you or someone there that would like you is pretty ******* high.
User avatar #189 to #188 - Kairyuka ONLINE (10/08/2013) [-]
Not when you consider who I am c:
I wish I was normal so many people could be compatible with me, but I'm not. And no, I'm not lying, the site tried to charge me for looking at my inbox or checking out others profiles, and several of the functions that were free were broken. I don't really have any faith in dating sites...
User avatar #190 to #189 - sparkyoneonetwo (10/08/2013) [-]
That clearly wasn't a free one then. Many dating sites have free options that will limit you to so many actions a day then ask you to pay but you get more actions every 24 hours.

"Not when you consider who I am c: " That is bull **** . That hardly matters you can be the most normally boring person in the word. You could be some super furry that never leaves his house with out his tail. You could be you, you could be hitler, you can be the most crazy physoc **** in the world. People will still care about you.

You are pretty much just bitching and making excuses for why you can't have what you said you want.
User avatar #191 to #190 - Kairyuka ONLINE (10/08/2013) [-]
I didn't make excuses, I'm simply saying what happens. It must be nice to be different from that, but you have to realize that we're both speaking from personal experience here. Trust me, I'd love for that dating site thing to work, I really would.
User avatar #192 to #191 - sparkyoneonetwo (10/08/2013) [-]
Then ******* do it. You can't just try one ******* thing and when that didn't work just give up. You will never get anywhere that way. You have the internet, you have google, you have bing, you have **** loads of ways to search **** look for some you will find tons of them. Use the personal ads on craigslist( the Denmark version clearly) Its a 100% free and totally anonymous way to find people. for all you know you could have 50 perfect woman or men or what ever the **** you are into all with in 10 miles of your house. Maybe you have to go a bit farther to meet them IRl maybe 20 or 30, 50, 100. It only takes a few hours to travail that far. But with out effort you will never find out. From what you say you are just making excuses to not try" oh I tired that once" or "I'm weird and not like other people" only trying once is pretty much worthless and I have ton of fantastic friends even pottionally lovers who don't have a whole lot in common with me and thats why we make such good friends. She could be your complete opposite and be the best wife you could ever have. I am easily the weirdest and most not like others I know person I ever met in whole ******* life of meeting people yet that fact don't stop me from finding people. Your excuses are stopping you.

User avatar #194 to #192 - Kairyuka ONLINE (10/08/2013) [-]
HAHAHA OH JEEZ
I think I can cross Craigslist off the list xD
User avatar #197 to #196 - Kairyuka ONLINE (10/08/2013) [-]
It's filled to the brim with spambots and horny people. I can't even tell what is real and what is just spam xD
User avatar #198 to #197 - sparkyoneonetwo (10/08/2013) [-]
that can be a problem there. Just keep checking it at different times. maybe an hour, maybe 10 hours maybe a whole day. there really is (at lest in the us) a lot of people not just wanting a quick **** .
User avatar #199 to #198 - Kairyuka ONLINE (10/08/2013) [-]
Yeah well Denmark is both smaller and worse protected against spam, so yeah. I will continue looking though, thanks
User avatar #200 to #199 - sparkyoneonetwo (10/08/2013) [-]
I am going to bed for now. I will send some emials when I get up to some of my freinds over there see if they know of any sits.
User avatar #201 to #200 - Kairyuka ONLINE (10/08/2013) [-]
Alright man, thanks for all the help, it's much too nice of you c:
User avatar #193 to #192 - Kairyuka ONLINE (10/08/2013) [-]
You know maybe you're right. Just because no one likes me, shouldn't stop me from at least meeting new people. Got any recommendations for dating sites? I suppose you don't use european ones though...
User avatar #195 to #193 - sparkyoneonetwo (10/08/2013) [-]
I could probably find some for you if you want though it would be a pain in the ass every time I look up anything about Denmark I get the city in the US but really you should try the craigslist thing.

You need to login to view this link


you can look up ads of woman looking for men or post your own ad about looking for woman. There is a lot of post about people just wanting sex but there is also many about people just trying to find freinds and stuff.

Life's different for everybody, that's all I have to say about that.
User avatar #21 to #20 - Kairyuka ONLINE (10/07/2013) [-]
Yeah and I realize a marriage can go sour, but if your marriage sucks from the get-go, you should really re-think your life decisions.
User avatar #22 to #21 - theugandanhero (10/07/2013) [-]
Re-thinking is easy, it's putting it all in motion that's difficult.
User avatar #23 to #22 - Kairyuka ONLINE (10/07/2013) [-]
Maybe so, but no one said the right thing was easy.
User avatar #128 to #19 - sparkyoneonetwo (10/07/2013) [-]
I have never ever understood the point to marriage. You pay some money to have a pice of paper given to you to basically say you love someone. That same stupid piece of paper could cause you **** loads of trouble if you marriage ever fails. The hole things just seems extremely stupid to me.
User avatar #158 to #128 - Kairyuka ONLINE (10/08/2013) [-]
I think it's about the party and also about the legal advantages.
User avatar #161 to #158 - sparkyoneonetwo (10/08/2013) [-]
The troubles don't seem worth it for the legal **** . I can party any day I want to so that don't seem worth it eihter.
User avatar #162 to #161 - Kairyuka ONLINE (10/08/2013) [-]
Well if you find the right person, then the troubles would hopefully be minimal c:
User avatar #163 to #162 - sparkyoneonetwo (10/08/2013) [-]
I will never get married. Even if they make gay marriage legal all over the world and everyone stops caring about it and I found the most perfect guy ever I still wouldn't get married.
User avatar #164 to #163 - Kairyuka ONLINE (10/08/2013) [-]
Well to each their own, as they say c:
User avatar #165 to #164 - sparkyoneonetwo (10/08/2013) [-]
one top of that other than the legal **** I've always seen mirage as kinda a religious thing and being i'm not exactly religious I don't see why I would ever do that.
User avatar #166 to #165 - Kairyuka ONLINE (10/08/2013) [-]
Marriage has never been a thing made by religions, religions merely adopted ownership of it. It boils down to "Two people wants to be together forever, so they do stuff to make it legally easier"
User avatar #167 to #166 - sparkyoneonetwo (10/08/2013) [-]
I've never heard that before or seen anyone else who heard that or read anything about that. No matter what you look at mirage has always been tied in with religion until recent times
User avatar #168 to #167 - Kairyuka ONLINE (10/08/2013) [-]
Well I suppose it has always been tied with religion, but that won't stop me. You can have non-religious marriages too. Also I just love the thought of sharing my future with another person c:
User avatar #169 to #168 - sparkyoneonetwo (10/08/2013) [-]
why do you need to be married for that??

Pretty much any origins of mirage I could ever find was so you can **** and not go to hell or so that you could **** to have kids to pass on the blood line. thats pretty much it before it became a legal thing. Now people are ******* left and right up and down and every thing else and not caring. The only benifies (unless you believe in religion) is legal **** and that can back fire horrible if you end up having a bad mirage and there is no telling if it will work out or not. what seems like the best mirages can go horribly wrong. Yet everyone is always like I wanna spend my life with someone I have to get married so pretty much you are saying unless you have a legal paper saying you love someone it's not possible. That makes no sense to me at all... its the biggest mind **** I have ever encounter...... Nothing else in the whole world has ever confused me more than when people say what you have just said.


I am not trying to sound like dick or ass or anything like that. I honestly just don't under stand that. I'm really sorry if I'm sound dickish or anything I just don't know... it just blows my mind...
User avatar #170 to #169 - Kairyuka ONLINE (10/08/2013) [-]
I'm not saying I need to or that anyone needs to, I just think that it's both nice AND beneficial, IF you're in a good relationship. Although since most people seem to evaluate their partners by how well their sex life is going, it would make sense that many modern marriages don't last.
User avatar #171 to #170 - sparkyoneonetwo (10/08/2013) [-]
I've seen people who have said what seemed like perfect relationship end ******* terribly like worse than any bad relationship I've ever seen. I know a few people who where married for like 40+ years end up in divorcees. You don't even have to be married to get the legal **** you can get a civil union pretty the same legal **** as Marge with a lot less back fire if **** goes bad. If I was ever gonna do anything like that that's what I'd do but like you said each to there own.... I guess I'll just never understand thsi.
User avatar #172 to #171 - Kairyuka ONLINE (10/08/2013) [-]
Well you don't need to, to respect others' decisions. Marriage CAN go well too, you know?
User avatar #173 to #172 - sparkyoneonetwo (10/08/2013) [-]
I'm not trying to be disrespectful... I'm sorry if you see it that way.

I know they can go good ( personally never seen that happen) all the bad that can happen just don't seem worth the risk that at lest what I think, clearly you see it differently but, unless you are religious and **** I see no reason to ever get married.
User avatar #174 to #173 - Kairyuka ONLINE (10/08/2013) [-]
Again, I don't need a marriage, but I think it's a nice gesture and such. I would want to have been in a functional relationship for many many years before doing it though. That probably won't happen any way, so I don't have to concern myself about it
#175 to #174 - sparkyoneonetwo (10/08/2013) [-]
Not with that ****** attitude it ain't. Believe in your self mother ****** good **** comes that way bro.
User avatar #176 to #175 - Kairyuka ONLINE (10/08/2013) [-]
Haha, that's an optimistic point of view. It's not true though
User avatar #177 to #176 - sparkyoneonetwo (10/08/2013) [-]
Its not just optimistic. It's very true in a way. It's not 100% true like every thing you ever want will happen but by believing in yourself and believing you can do what you want to achieve you got much better chances that just being all like " oh well that will never happen" ain't nothing gonna happen if you don't work at it. some confidence and self belief will take you miles farther than others. It's not 100% but it's a huge step in the right defection to achieve what you want. Why would you work hard at something you dont' think will happen?? if you believe it will or you can many times that is the push that people need to get them to get to there dreams.
User avatar #178 to #177 - Kairyuka ONLINE (10/08/2013) [-]
Effort and love are not two things that fit together. I could put all the effort in the world in, but if the mutual love isn't there, it just gets pushy and creepy. It all starts with the chemistry, and there is no one compatible with me c:
User avatar #32 to #19 - hanabro (10/07/2013) [-]
I don't think it's talking about marriage, as a concept. It's more like worrying ABOUT getting married. "Should I get married? What if I can't find the right person? I'm afraid that life will be different, but I don't want to be alone."
User avatar #130 to #32 - queenjester (10/07/2013) [-]
You won't be along if you don't get married though. Were you alone before you married? Naaah. Besides, I'd rather stay with my significant other simply 'cause I want to, rather than have a legal document that says I have to be. To each their own though.

Huh. Well I'm not afraid of being committed, maybe because I really love being around the ones I love. Sucks that I won't get married though.

People are always so quick to act as if being an adult is worse than being raped by Satan.

"Oh, being a kid is so much better, I wish I was still a kid, being n adult sucks!" Yeah, because having zero say in anything you do and having all of your opinions thrown away is so great.

The people who talk about how amazing it is to be a kid have obviously ****** up, somewhere in their adult life. If you want your adulthood to be great, you can make it happen. If you have a ****** childhood, there's nothing you can do but wait it out.

**** being a kid, being an adult means real freedom and the choice to make your life what you truly want it to be.
#54 to #39 - Rascal (10/07/2013) [-]
That's like when I think "Wow, as a kid I had everything".

But I was also fat, neglected by my friends, and no one ever understood what I was saying.

It's like those people that go to high school reunions: Their dead hopes and dreams manifest in their failed childhoods to provide temporary nostalgia in a life of regret.
User avatar #61 to #54 - tenaciousjon (10/07/2013) [-]
Exactly. As an adult, you have the freedom to change the things in your life that you don't like. You can do something. As a kid, your freedoms and rights are so extremely limited.

Oh but being a kid is the most magically amazing thing in the entire universe, right? When I was little, if there was a problem in my life, I had no power. If the adults wouldn't do anything about it, I was stuck dealing with it. So great, though, right?
#123 to #61 - Rascal (10/07/2013) [-]
What kind of serious problems did you have as a kid that you needed power to deal with and how can you compare them to problems that you will now have as an adult like bills, debt, etc.?

As adults yes we have the power to change and better deal with things we don't like but we also have to deal with generally more serious situations and problems. Personally, I liked it when my life was simple.
User avatar #126 to #123 - tenaciousjon (10/07/2013) [-]
Well, if you were being bullied by a kid who was much bigger/stronger than you, you basically NEED an adult to help you. If you don't get that help, you have to just suck it up and deal with it. And that would simply be the end of it. If someone is harassing you, as an adult, you can go to the authorities. They HAVE to help you, so long as you're in the right and you didn't provoke the person.

As a kid, it's all up to "if they decide to help". As an adult, you have many ways of solving this problem and it's in your ability to solve it.

Yes, we have to deal with more serious and complicated issues, as adults, but that's what we've been growing and maturing for. I've dealt with so very many extremely serious and important matters and I'm used to it. I have the right mind and maturity to deal with and handle serious issues.

My main (But not only) gripe with being a kid vs. being an adult is that, as a child, you have no power. No rights. No freedoms. If you want to do ANYTHING, you gotta check with Mommy and Daddy, first. Your opinions mean nothing, as a child. The adults will just laugh at what you say in that "Kids say the darndest things" way.

As an adult, you're finally free to live your life as you want You finally have freedom.

Yeah, screw that. You can still have fun being an adult without needing alcohol or drugs. If you want to do something, DO IT. Also we don't need marriage, a house, or babies as much as before, there are 7 billon people on the planet and many people have kids, doesn't mean you have

Never too late to make some then don't you think? ^^

Hell my life pisses me off at times, wish I could be 16 again, come home after school and watch cartoons all afternoon. **** I still do that today every now and then but sometimes responsibilites gets too much, like the fear of never amounting up to anything in my fathers eyes. I gave up on that, find something that makes you happy and keeps you going. The rest can all go **** themselves. We all grow old and die one day, so **** it, might as well try to enjoy the ride, its not always easy and sometimes we feel like qutting but heck, we can't expect to go through life will all the answers right


That'll be the end of my essay chief ^^

I hate the way I was raised. My folks took no interest in teaching me about the real world, or teaching me how to do things. It wasn't until I was almost 20 that I could move out of their house, and I'm finding out about all of this **** just now. It's like being hit by a ******* freight train. You gotta understand, it may not seem like a lot to most of you how adult life works here in America, but to somebody like me who spent almost 20 years of his life locked up in his room with no clue to what's going on, it's a nightmare. Just the staggering amount of work you have to do to tread water. I'm almost 21 now, and I've never had a job, because there are none in this backwards redneck town. I'm almost 21, and I have no idea how to drive a car, how to apply for a job, or how to handle a job interview. No idea how to rent a apartment, or how not to be scammed and ripped off by everybody and his brother. No commons sense, no social skills, and no deductive reasoning.

I love my mother, but I wasn't raised correctly. This is becoming a rampant issue, because more and more morons are having kids and not teaching them about the rel world. Most of the kids in my high school classes had cars, because their stupid parents payed for it. Now they have no concept of work, money, or value, or cost-benefit analysis. We have a whole generation growing up like this. I feel like those of us born in the last 30 years were ******* cheated.

These are important things for kids to learn. If not, they're going to have to go through the School of Hard Knocks, and these classes aren't east, and dropping out isn't an option. If any of you breeder funnyjunkers are out there with kids, make sure they know how to deal with their future. Teach them these things, and don't let the television or Playstation be their third parent. As much as I love Pokemon, it doesn't teach you how to buy a car or rent an apartment, and it certainly doesn't teach you how to make relationships with other people.

I know what you mean. But, I figure what's life without a little risk? Or you could movie to a city that has public transportation. It's nice to live in a location that has everything you need in walking distance so you don't need a car, or you can just save up for one later. A car's a pretty big responsibility, so you gotta figure how much driving you'll be putting in. Figure out if it's worth it.

Maybe stop blaming your parents and take some initiative. I wasn't taught how to apply for jobs or go to and interview or write a resume or cover letter, I just went out and did it and when I was unsure I googled "cover letter examples" and such.
No one taught me how to rent a apartment, I just got on craigslist, typed in the max amount I could afford and started emailing people for viewings.
Yeah maybe in life you may get ripped off, but that is how you learn. If you want to learn to be an adult, just go out and be one.
Being an adult isn't about knowing how to do things, or even succeeding, its about taking responsibility for your own life.
I've worked the ****** jobs, been in crazy debt, eaten nothing other than peanut butter sandwiches for a week, but I have also gone to different countries to explore, gone to concerts, gone skiing every day for a week. I enjoy my life as an adult because it's what I make of it and I make it a good one, despite how much I was taught.
User avatar #147 to #143 - rhinocerous **User deleted account** (10/08/2013) [-]
That's what I'm trying to do now. Since I've moved here, I've gone job hunting, and I've moved out once. There really aren't any jobs available in the area, because they're all taken. That's why I"m getting a CNA license, cause I'll pretty much be guaranteed work wherever I go. Financial stability comes first for me, everything else is put on the back burner.
User avatar #150 to #83 - linktheherooftime (10/08/2013) [-]
I'm going to be 18 in a couple months, and my Grandma never taught me how to do anything. I know how to do little to nothing, and until recently I wasn't expected to do anything. Now she gets super pissed at me when I don't know how to do something I "should know how "
User avatar #151 to #150 - rhinocerous **User deleted account** (10/08/2013) [-]
So you had absolutely nobody to teach you how to do anything?
Like, no friends, parents, family members or anybody to drop you some advice growing up?
User avatar #152 to #151 - linktheherooftime (10/08/2013) [-]
I was exaggerating a bit when I said anything. I don't have many friends, a lot of my family doesn't like each other, my mom's a druggy, and I've met my dad once. My Grandparent's are the only people in my family who are even partially normal, and that's borderline. They've never really made me do much, but now it seems like they expect me to just know how to do everything.
User avatar #154 to #152 - rhinocerous **User deleted account** (10/08/2013) [-]
Well, maybe you should mention your position. Maybe if they see how you see things, they'll let up, or maybe you should ask them how to do these things. See, my problem was I was too ignorant to even think of what it took to make it in the real world, so I never asked anybody. Now I'm the opposite. Try soaking up as much advice from people as you can. Listen to the news, and research on the internet what you need. It's time to start thinking about what you want to do, but you don't have to have a career in mind yet. If you're planning on going to college, it would be a good idea to find out if you're eligible for financial aid. If not, look into student loans, and get the FACTS. Don't believe anything anybody on the internet says without looking it up yourself.
You know, set some reasonable goals, and lay out plans to achieve them.
User avatar #113 to #83 - Underground (10/07/2013) [-]
I'm sooo glad there's another person who's 21 and doesn't know how to adult. I'm not alone!

My mom raised me a lot like how your parents raised you, I was never taught about checkbooks or jobs or even taught how to drive. After my parents divorced and took me out of school I shut myself into a room with a computer from the time I was 15 till now (21) and suddenly everyone's expecting me to magically know how to do all this **** . Suddenly I was responsible for putting food on the table seeing as how my mom didn't have a job. And on top of that they want to know what college I'm gonna go to and what I'm going to study and who's gonna take care of my mom while I'm gone (my mom is disabled).

I deal though, and I'm sure you can too, don't let it get you down because I know from experience that it is overwhelming sometimes. I finished highschool on my own, got a job and am (slowly) learning to drive.
User avatar #120 to #113 - rhinocerous **User deleted account** (10/07/2013) [-]
That's great, man. I'm going in the same direction. I have no intention of locking myself in a room and dying. There just comes a time when enough is enough, you know? Like, the lifestyle just sort of impairs your brain to make everything seem pointless. Depression and a self-defeating attitude are hard things to live with, and you can't just "get over it". It doesn't make it any easier when everybody insists you're making it all up, and you should just magically pull social skills, a girlfriend and a high paying job out of your ass.
User avatar #122 to #120 - Underground (10/07/2013) [-]
Yeah and you can't really talk to anyone about it or they'll tell you to stop whining and 'suck it up cupcake' as my manager/friend likes to tell me. They don't realize its a culture shock to someone who wasn't exposed to things like that growing up. Kinda like a rich person being thrown into the suburbs to fend for themselves. I stagnated for damn near 6 years and in that time got hugely depressed and now with the weight of 'the rest of my life' bearing down on me it's hard to not buckle under it. Our housing situation is being compromised so I may have to find us somewhere to live. But I look at it like this, no matter what happens life goes on and you can either keep moving with it or let it drag your ass along.
User avatar #124 to #122 - rhinocerous **User deleted account** (10/07/2013) [-]

Well, the good news is, if you do wind up having kids, you'll know what you have to teach them. Furthermore, I feel like for a lot of things we're kind of making it up as we go along, no matter how well our parents prepared us.

Am I the only one that thinks it's not as bad as it seems?
I mean even when you're legally an adult you still can have
many years of education ahead of you, so it's not as if you're
suddenly plunged into the 'real world' as soon as you come of age.
And the 'real world' is only as bad as you make it be. Bills, marriage,
babies and all that sort of thing are caused by YOU, so it's
unfair to say 'ohhh the world's so hard'.
