    It all started when I was 12 and played call of duty (COD) for the first time. I instantly became addicted to it resulting in me getting very average grades in secondary school despite having a lot of potential. I was also very good at sport and could've potential gone professional, but video games drove me away from the passion completely. After secondary school, I didn't want to go to college, but did anyway to keep my parents happy and took subjects that I had no interest in. I left college after 5 months as was a completely failure in the tutors and my parents have never forgiven me for this. I remember that Christmas my mom asked me what I wanted and all I said was Monster energy drinks. She bought me a whole crate full of them and I would down one after another so I could game all night. I hated myself but I loved video games. I actually became good at COD and went to a gaming event back in 2015 and I was completely ridiculed due to being small and introvert. I have not played COD since then and I try to avoid people as much as possible since. Fast forward to 2018, and now I don't play video games but my life's a mess, **** job, **** pay, **** life, no passions, no hobbies, nothing. Why can't I just go back in time and fix my life when I was 16. Now everything's just fucked because I couldn't put the controller down. PS. my 21st birthday was hilarious, went for a meal with family I hadn't seen for a while, and seeing the looks on their faces when I told them about me.

  • How pathetic is this man?

    Best answer: He's not pathetic. The person who has asked this "question" 20+ times is the pathetic one. I gather you approached this man and he refused your advances?

    I thought R.N.s had to be able to spell.

    EDIT: You seem to be very confused: “What kond of person you think I am? When i was 20 I had kids with a man who would eventually end up in and out of jail. I dropped out of school in the 9th grade. Work fast food and weigh...I'm 34 now.” https://answers.yahoo.com/question/index...

    I'm 18 and currently doing level 1 functional skills. When I was 16 I failed all of my GCSEs getting a lot of Us and 1 E, I was bullied, I was dealing with depression, anxiety and barely revised. I want to do Criminology and Psychology at University but I'm struggling to find somewhere to allow me to retake Double Science, I've found a Pre Access course to retake English and Maths but I need to revise to get on to the course for next year, luckily you don't already need grades for it but I found a Trilogy Science course you need a D to get on to, I have an E, they're saying it's a big jump to pass and get Cs/4s or above from an E, I'm feeling like I'm completely f**ked my life up failing GCSEs I mean what can I do? I don't want to be working class my whole life when it's bad enough being born into it, my sibling made it out, got great grades, studied a good degree and got a good job, I want that to happen to me but I had a worse start by having to cope with very bad mental health unlike them, if I knew how important GCSEs were, had help from others and didn't have the problems I had I probably would of passed, I just couldn't concentrate on revising and missed a lot of school. I need advice.

  • How do I motivate myself?

    I'm not ending this year of high school with good grades. I have two days to change them but nothing will probably happen within that time. So I end with 2 A's, 3 B's, 2 C's and 1 D.

    I'm not ending this year of high school with good grades. I have two days to change them but nothing will probably happen within that time. So I end with 2 A's, 3 B's, 2 C's and 1 D. My parents are really disappointed and keep lecturing me about how lazy I am and how I'm going to "end up just like my brother" and annoying stuff like that. They think I don't care about school and they think I can "do better than this." I do care about school. I do most of the assignments, they're just almost always late. Because I procrastinate. I just can't get myself to work on things quickly and now days I just want to do my own thing or nothing. It sounds kind of lazy but I think I might be depressed so I've been trying to see with stuff like online help and trying new things and stuff but nothing works. Both my parents were straight A students so they expect me to be the same. Unfortunately for them they didn't get a perfect kid who inherited their brains and self discipline. They think that because they're smart that I'm smart too and I should have straight A's as I "have the potential" (which basically means they're in denial of how stupid I am lmao). So they're no help at motivation at all and I feel pretty worthless. I'm probably burdening them because who wants a kid you're not proud of? Why would you want to go "oh yeah that one's mine" to the world pointing at some failure?

  • Are actions good or evil?

    Best answer: Some actions can be good or evil. It also depends on the circumstances. Generally a person stabbing someone in the chest is a bad thing...unless the person is a surgeon and they are performing a life saving procedure. It's not just the action but also the intent of the actor.

  • Spiritually speaking: does anyone else ever get sick of having to speak/think/breathe "Logic" all the time?

    To the point that the FIRST thing on most people's mind is always: "well, is it logical, though?" Ever felt like saying: "f*ck it!", and becoming something else instead?

    To the point that the FIRST thing on most people's mind is always: "well, is it logical, though?" Ever felt like saying: "f*ck it!", and becoming something else instead? Like... handing out answers that are not dictated by whether or not something is *logical*, but just simply by whatever colors, images, emotions and sensations are moving inside you, at any given moment? I used to be all like: "let's rebel against this dreary, soulless bullsh*t, man!" But it's not even THAT anymore.. It's just, my brain no longer works that way. Unless I bloody force it to. Which is.. well.. boring. Ever felt like you'd rather create a story than win an argument? That dreams are just as real, and just as impactful, as academic propositions? Or that maybe you just don't care anymore, trying to define what's what... In short: I wish more people on here were slightly mad, perhaps. And that more real life people couldn't sleep right now, because insomnia. Grrrrrrr.

  • Would you say a 24 year old is almost 30 as it's only six years?

    Best answer: LOL. No. 6 years is an additional 25 percent of living for the 24 year old, or 20 percent of life for a 30 year old.

  • Are we born with an ego?

    Best answer: Yes. Development studies show that we have instincts at birth, called performative motor skills, and recognition neuro devices giving us a sense of mine and not mine, even at that age (at birth).

    Best answer: Yes. Development studies show that we have instincts at birth, called performative motor skills, and recognition neuro devices giving us a sense of mine and not mine, even at that age (at birth). This continues to develop as the human's brain grows. The ego is a very simple construct for the infant, and it increases in its complexity until it reaches such heights of consciousness as achieved by Monks, or someone like me ("my" consciousness)
