    My current situation is becoming so dull that major procrastination is settling in. I wish I had another opportunity to work out of state or do something new because this shit is getting bad. If I don't drop all my current opportunities at work and in school(which would be a seriously hard step), my recent subpar efforts are gonna cause it all to collapse on me. This stagnant lifestyle is getting to the point of depression. I'm strongly considering the military as a "get the fuck out free" card seeing as I'd leave on a good note.

    I've got a research paper due tomorrow after work that I've had a month to do and I haven't even opened a book. It's 8:30pm and I have to get up 5am for work, so fuck me.

    I know I'm not the only one to procrastinate, but am I the only one who has to move around to retain sanity? I've even moved out of my own place multiple times to rent a room from friends for the sole purpose of change.

    Have you ever been diagnosed with ADD or ADHD? And in my opinion enlisting because you are bored is pretty much the worst reason for joining you could come up with.

    What kind of stuff do you do on the weekend? Do you shoot pool or bowl? You could try joining a league maybe.

    lol. you have pretty much described me.

    i get itchy feet. i hate staying in the same place for too long. i have been back in tn for a long time now. im ready to leave, but commitments and requirements have kept me here. depression does sink in when you want change. its a bitch.




    fuck that add bullshit. thats retarded. some people are content with staying in one place and having a routine. some arent. thats just how it is.
    i could rant on ADD bullshit forever. but thats for another thread for another time.

    want an idea that will help you until you at least get through with school?
    stop working on weekends, take weekend trips. go anywhere and everywhere that is less than a days drive away. go see friends and family you havnt seen in a while. anywhere you can stay for free.
    buy a tent. choose a random park to camp in for the weekend.

    I was a big procrastinator in school myself. I forced myself to go to the library to study / write papers. The hardest part is forcing yourself to go. Once there, the atmosphere is pretty conducive to getting shit done. Second, whenever I get in a rut, I work out. A long run or bike ride lets me clear my mind, the endorphins cheer me up, and the blood pumping wakes me up.

    Well you could save up some cash and take two months off drive around the country and see if that helps work out the restlessness.

    same shit here.... i gave up after a while because i just didn't care anymore. I don't think the military is the answer. some time off from school may be the thing to do.

    military is not the answer. pm me if you want to get into details and other options. (no homo)

    the way to get out of the stagnant lifestyle is to make the best of your spare time. do something exciting. something that gets your heart pumping. something that makes you "live for the weekend".

    i would highly suggest finding a local track and taking your bike out.

    find your "fight club"

    I get like this sometimes and everyone is right. Find something that makes you want to work for extra cash or whatever. My current goal is to get a new board for this snowboarding season. I also want to hit CO, VT, and maybe Canada this year. I need the money to do it so I keep working. And I'm about to order my board, I literally have adrenaline running through my veins.

    Finished my paper at 2am and made it to work on time. Barely have enough time to go home, shower, and head to class. Some seriously good advice and I appreciate you guys chiming in. Hopefully I'm physically capable of reading everything over before passing out when I get home.

    I can relate though. just on a different scale. I'm bored of feeling overwhelmed with work, bills, money and responsibility. I just want a major change in life, but the only thing I can do is wait.

    I've been trying so hard to type something while nodding off. My work schedule is 6-2:30 Mon-Fri, but I end up working overtime quite a bit, so I normally leave at 4:30ish. I actually did take a break from school this semester, I'm only taking one class and it's Tuesday night. My schedule for the passed year has been school for three hours mon-thurs directly after work and is supposed to go back to that in January.

    My biggest issue is that I took a break from school so I could finish remodeling an apartment on my mom's property to live in, but it's turned into such a hassle. Remodeling the apartment has been the easy part, it's all the bs that has entailed. I need to just finish this apartment, sub-lease it to someone, and move back into a place with zero responsibilities so I can focus on school. I haven't even taken my bike out in almost 2 months and much longer since I've gone for an actual ride.

    andddddd, just woke up in front of the computer again. Going to bed, I'll try this again tomorrow.

    I call it being strong willed and having integrity and initiative. Yeah I slack. But I get my shit done. If you're getting close to failing and don't got it, then fuck it.

    Grab a pair. Get off your ass and make something of yourself. Yeah its easier said then done but you really need to literally think about this.








    If you can't hack school and have no drive. Then quit wasting your time and devote your extra time to something else that will make you better or further your future. Its the sacrifices now that make your life easier in the future.

    I've been "diagnosed" with manic depression and social anxiety, but my beliefs on that kind of stuff seems to be the same as invisibledemon's. Beliefs aside, I do get some pretty rough mood swings and I posted this on one of them. I'm far from suicidal or anything, I just start overanalyzing everything. Yeah, I take some odd measures to spice things up and keep it new, but that's what life's all about. You guys are absolutely right, I just need to get out more. My schedule is filled from light till dark all week and it's just getting old. I wont be making any major decisions irrationally like joining the military. I've been thinking about that for a long time and if the time comes, I'll be mentally ready for it... kinda. My GPA is 3.5 and I aced that paper I wrote the other day. I'm mentally capable of making it through school and am doing so fine. Just when I start feeling down, I feel like I need to gtfo and go somewhere or I'm just gonna fuck stuff up.

    Instead of taking another trailer load to the landfill the other day, I decided to have some fun for the first time in a while. Took my shotgun to a local range's seven stand skeet setup, man do I miss that. Then I setup a few archery targets at home and practiced shooting out of my tree stand.

    Drake, good call on the league thing. Maybe I'll look for a skeet/trap shooting league. I've also been considering joining the local Mason's lodge, but when I go back to full time school, I could never make it to the meetings.

    Nick, I would absolutely LOVE to get into some track days, but it's just too much money. An 09 is the wrong way to go for someone on my budget.

    I was honestly being a whiney bitch, but with every right. My current living situation was supposed to be perfect, but has turned out to be the worst decision of my life(hardly an exaggeration) financially and mentally.
