The thread for flipping shits (and tables)
RE: The thread for flipping shits (and tables)
I didn't do too good in a math test and this makes me peeved but mostly really anxious and sad, because I know no matter how much I study i'll still make mistakes, because I'm forgetful and I have my head in the clouds too much. I don't want to look at my report card, it terrifies me. But I know my mom will and that terrifies me even more.

I have a huge hole in my tooth that i can't afford to fix so i've been trying to ignore it, but its getting worse... Mum has offered to pay but also has been talking about her own financial woes bc of already subsidising our rent and my sister's medical stuff (have i mentioned in here that my sister has cancer? because yeah)

RE: The thread for flipping shits (and tables)
I feel like I want to leave my job. I'm not really happy, and this feels like a dead end job. But, can I really afford to pursue my *dream job*? Can anyone, really? Like, it just constantly depresses me that there are people who settle for their current job that they hate because they have to support their family somehow. Is there even a job that I will like, or will I become tired of every job quickly simply because there's work involved?

RE: The thread for flipping shits (and tables)
It's hard to say, really. Right now, I've landed in a place where I could very well support myself (in a kind of bare-bones lifestyle) for the rest of my life if everything goes well. I'm doing what I like (drawing, animating). However, this could also be an opportunity for me to jump somewhere else after I get enough experience here (because i'm animating very boring things and I want to do more creative stuff). So, in my case, no, I don't want to settle for what I have even if this is technically not a dead end job.

It all depends on what you want from life, i think. Sure, there are "dream jobs" like being your own boss, working on what you like to do. But for some people, being comfortable enough and having enough money to support a family or even just hanging out with friends is more than enough. Some others are forced to do this even if they don't want to though, like you mentioned.

I think as long as you have an interest in something that can be profitable, then you definitely can have a dream job. Because as cliché as it sounds, if you enjoy what you're doing (and I mean really enjoy, the kind of enjoyment that makes you not want to stop doing what you're doing), then it's not a job anymore.

Maybe you're becoming tired of every job quickly because you don't have an end goal, which makes the whole endeavor seem pointless.

I can say some people are perfectly happy to live to work, and some people are perfectly happy to work to live. Of course, not everyone is happy. There is a great deal to be said for sticking with an unpleasant state of affairs for a higher cause, yes, but evaluating whether it costs more to stay or to go can be very tough: We pay a price for anything we do, but we also pay a price for anything we don’t do.

Either way, making these kinds of calls for yourself is a big part of what maturity—of having your act together—is. It’s hard not knowing what you’re about, and it’s hard knowing what you’re about but getting stopped every step of the way.

I’ve been pondering (and reading up) on such things quite a bit over the past few years myself because I’ve been stuck in my personal hell. In material terms it would seem to many people that it’s a very nice situation, with a broad knowledge of things and a degree in a hot field, but that’s a part and parcel of the problem. It is costing me very little to stay, but it is also profiting me nothing, and knowing that the true cost is anything else I could have been doing, it’s like I’ve been paying for it with my soul. But ah, this is not about me and my long history of (in retrospect) attention-seeking behavior (that manifested in ways few people would interpret as such).

Perhaps to spin this more reassuringly: lots of people don’t have this figured out, neither on a practical level nor on a rational one. If they do, it’s usually not at a young age; Hunter S. Thompson seems to be the notable exception.

Also one of the countless things I wish I knew 10–15 years ago, but was never told (many people seem to need the opposite lesson at those ages anyhow, plus who knows whether I’d act on it?): if you are young, or just really unestablished and have nothing, it is in some ways safer to take more risks if the rewards are worth it; hitting rock bottom and bouncing back is no big deal at that stage. This is a door less open to people with mouths to feed, less health, (hopefully) higher pay commensurate with more experience and knowledge, and/or retirement savings to lose, and people are far less sympathetic—fair or not, and I’d say not—if you’re taking the risks at age 3x deemed more of a 2x-year-old’s game just because you weren’t back then.

Hope that helps, but then again I’m still nobody and also not who I thought I was in the first place so what do I really know eh.

Missed a phone interview today because I forgot to account for timezones.

Currently filled with a mixture of embarrassment shame and self-loathing for such a stupid fuckup.

Only recourse now is to find a hornet's nest and shove my head in it.

That's okay, we all forget things sometimes, there are so many things to keep track of and sometimes we can't handle them all.
I completely forgot about an appointment I had with my therapist (which was going to be for free) and I felt really awful about it. But after curling up in a ball and crying I decided to call her up, apologize and promise it won't happen again. So my point is, yeah, take your time to feel bad about it, but remember it's not the end of the world after that!
