Loki's Words of Wisdom Entry # 3

Posted by Loki Laufeyson , 18 June 2013 · 652 views

childhood better times
Anybody remember when things were simpler? When there was no facebook, no cell phones, no internet. Just going outside and hanging out with your friends, then coming back inside and staying up all night to play video games? When you didn't have a worry in the world? When you didn't have to worry about what people thought about you, and you could just do what you wanted? I hate the reality of having to grow up, the reality that in a little more than eight years I'm going to have to pay bills. I remember how bad I wanted to grow up when I was a kid; now that I'm grown I realize how bad it sucks. Having to make all these complex decisions, having to be in constant worry. It sucks, plain and simple. For any younger players on here: Don't be in any hurry to grow up. Enjoy your youth while you still can, because before you know it; it's gone. You'll never get it back either.




Remember the simpler times when you rogued GOONS then quit the game after getting wrecked?

 

You should try that again.

It's different for everybody. Some are happiest as kids, some are happiest as adults. Some have the best years of their lives when they retire, while some have them in high school.

It's funny because I loved my childhood and hated high school. So hopefully I'll be one of those cool old guys who can just sit back and enjoy life.

Being an adult is awesome. You just happened to have reached the sucky crossroads between adult and childhood, which really sucks. It will get better. 

 

Being a young adult is awesome because whilst yes you have to work and pay bills, that is you, doing it on your own, in your own way. Yes it is scary. Yes there are fears of unemployment, debt, death by giant squirrel. But at the end of the day, you can do what you like, when you like, and how you like. You get to decide what happens to you. Especially when your first paycheck and are independent of your parents.

What? Being an adult is more of a pain in the ass than being a kid or a teenager? That is absolute !@#$%^&*! All you have worry about, as an adult, is labor and the bills, that is it! Teenagers have to worry about schoolwork, blending in society, the absolute headaches your own peers and your own parents causes, being commanded upon, seen and viewed as unimportant. If you are an adult raising children, then that is a different story, but if not, then I see no struggle to be an adult.

Ahahahahahaha. Ahahahahahaha. Hhhahahahahahahaha.

 

I can't even type a coherent response to you, Marin. I'm laughing at your naivety too hard.

I don't know about you but high school was easy as !@#$. Not to mention the whole "blending in with society" thing is !@#$%^&* because the cool kids in junior high are pregnant/fathers by the end of high school and the cool kids in high school are gonna be jobless five years from now, so being cool is the least of your worries (or should be)

Man, there's so much advice you should take from me Marin.

It is also taking care of your family, finding a job, buying a car, having to pay back student loans if you take the college route (which will most likely take up your entire life) etc. While high school was probably some of the worst four years of my life, it's nothing compared to what comes after it. I agree with Neo Uruk (for once), being "cool" should be the least of your worries. Unfortunately I didn't realize that until after I graduated, as most of the "cool" kids either have kids or aren't doing squat with their lives. Me, I'm at the late teens/early young adult stage of trying to figure out what I want to do with my life. Like I said enjoy your youth while you still have it, because after high school it's gone.

While I like the whole independence aspect, what I hate is having to make all these decisions. Nobody ever said it would be easy, but like you said I guess it will get better.

Wait. You said in eight years you will pay bills.

 

Your ten and have better grammer then me?

 

kk

Maybe he has a planned out agreement with someone where he doesn't need bills; or will be living at a university for 8 years.

There are several options that do not mean he is a ten year old, and given the fact that he stated he is a young adult it seems unlikely.

Remember when you had a good post, cuz I don't.

I'm 19...

I paid rent for my uni accomodation at 18 and started paying bills at 19 and now have a job at 21 (now 22). How is it going to take you 8 years to start paying them?

I was making an approximation, I'm in college and I live with my parents still.

Really? This is merely a post, I do not know what is so hilarious about a text -_- .

Yeah, Im about to turn sixteen, so maybe what I am speaking of is naivety, but the only worrying I see in andult is the bills and his/her own job (if the adult does not have a family).

As I have said, if you're an adult whose had no children, I do not see the real struggle of the adult. 

Somebody hasn't heard of the economy lately. Hell, there aren't even any summer jobs where I'm at.

LOL. Then you're in for a serious rude awakening once you graduate from High School.

I was making an approximation, I'm in college and I live with my parents still.

So you estimate living at home until you are 27? That's probably part of the problem. You are not seizing the opportunity to get your independence but are old enough that you have full expectations and responsibility of an adult. 

As for the difficulty of adult with children vs a teenager and the amount of worries, I have far more worry than when I was 16. I am however far happier than I was when I was 16.

Not what I said at all. I meant to say within 6-8 years, because of college and everything after that. While a big lack of motivation on my part is a part of my problem, I also do not have the resources to live by myself; which is why I still live with my parents for now.
