    I'm feeling pissed off, by being on here, to be honest at the moment. Not by any particular person, but just because I can see what the forum is becoming... It feels like, to me, all the support (what little was left), has now completely gone from it. Just my personal view, there. Doesn't mean it's true in any sense of the word, though.

    I'm also feeling rather bored in life, currently ... Although I've just had a great couple of hours discussing what consciousness is, what the brain is, what meaning is, and all the associated philosophical gumption that I love, and besides that, currently, right now, I'd chuck that in, just to feel like I'm going somewhere in life. I've got a variety of interests, of jobs that I think I could do, and that I could pratically, actually do ... I'd do them in a heartbeat at this precise moment. Yet, I always come back to the ''Well, the next four years will give you a grounding and [hopefully] will set you up for a decent job for life''.

    I've got so many aspirations currently .... To write a novel, to just scribble down philosophical stuff that ends up as some sort of amazing philosophical book or novel or something ... To have a job that I'd like doing, that I'd enjoy ... The money would be much much less important than the satisfaction, which is integral...

    I'm just bored. Pissed off, bored and blah, at the mo...

    :hug: Joe, we all have times when we feel like this, just don't do anything rash! (I'm sure you won't) :smile:

    Stick at uni, get your degree and see where life takes you from there, well that's my opinion anyway! :laugh:

    Sorry you're feeling like that :( I suppose when you have been a member of a place like this for as long as you have it must be difficult to see it change all the time - it's like life - circumstances, people, environments etc are all changing all of the time. I would imagine the forum is like that and goes through periods of time when it is more supportive and times when it is less supportive, depending upon circumstances. What would you like to see happening on the forum? Is there anything the people you know and trust can do to make it feel like a better place to you at the moment?

    I think re university, there is often a point whereby students are taking on board so much knowledge and new concepts that frustration starts to kick in because it's all very theoretical and you're not able to 'use' what your learning in a practical sense. I would imagine that uni IS very much a grounding for your future - as frustrating as it may be at moment. But your obviously thinking about your future and where you want to go with what you've learned and what you're passionate about - that has to be a postive? Your aspirations are great! Do you think that there is something that you could do about them whilst you are still studying? What would make you feel like you were going somewhere?

    I'm thinking of you :)

    hey Joe

    i hope you are feeling better now, you have always come across as a down to earth, sensible guy so i know you wont do anything on the 'spur of the moment' but maybe its just that what is missing, idk maybe you are over thinking things just a tad?
    its ok to have a life plan about the future but sometimes you just got to say ' fuck it' and just go and do something different.

    take care mate

    Hey Joe..... need a little spice in your life? Try Canada. Can promise you many surprises, the weather that is one day 5c then the next -45c, kid you not, the seasons that include winter, winter, mosquitoes and winter and of course "real" beer not that imitation american stuff (yeah I said it and meant it too!!!!). Hun you need to take a "what the Hell day." Just get up one morning pretend SF doesnt exist ,promise it will still be here with all it's problems when you get back. Hell maybe even an odd new one,and just do something totally UnJoe! But keep it legal huh, we only allow you one UnJoe day per year. You know we are all here for you sweets!!!! But you end up in the clink you're on your own!!!! Joe dont worry so much about the future just enjoy today and let the SF stuff go for a bit. Ya know ya wanna!!!!! Loves ya!

    I am feeling better now mate, yup. Maybe I am over thinking things a little, but that's what I'm feeling (or was feeling).. 'Tis a pain, as at times it just hits me, but, like now, I'm happily plodding on with philosophy and german, which is a great degree as it combines both my great interests.

    I would do something different if I could (and still do my uni degree), which I guess is that this thread has as a subtext. But anyway, at the moment, at the current time, I feel happy where I am. As I say - the feeling comes and goes.

    Sounds good to me :laugh:

    Cheers guys :)
