Random fashion thoughts - Page 4887post #73292 of 1090532/8/13 at 11:55amjust preempting a reply that we all know was coming.
i'll also say this:
this site is a horrible place to try figure out what you want to do, because of the endless and obvious conscious consumption. it's hard to say 'i want to become a social worker' when everywhere you look lawyers and ibankers are dropping $45,000 on a patek or 10 pairs of edward greens.
you should also take the next few months and talk to one of your school's counselors. its the only time in your life that you can get free therapy -- take advantage of it.post #73293 of 1090532/8/13 at 11:57amQuote:Originally Posted by Teger
also it goes without saying that this conversation is the most first world problem thing imaginable, but still.. look at where we are. also 'money isn't everything/happiness' is definitely true, but having been so poor that i literally didn't have the money for a burger from mcdonalds, i'm sure as fuck thankful that i have enough money to eat. money doesn't solve your problems, but it lets you get to a position where your problems are 'what should i do after graduation' and not 'how the fuck can i buy medicine to live.'
so in short, what kanye said.
money ain't everything, but not having it, is.post #73294 of 1090532/8/13 at 11:57ampost #73295 of 1090532/8/13 at 11:58ampost #73296 of 1090532/8/13 at 11:59amQuote:
by money I mean 'the base floor wherein you can purchase food, a place to live and the occasional luxury.' money doesn't mean a pair of aldens a month. i probably make between $17,000 - $20,000 a year, and receive no outside help, and have found that wage very livable (for now).Quote:

Creating some abitrary figure as "enough to make you happy" is bullshit. Happiness is based upon your expectations; if you expect to make $40k and pull down $70k, yes, I can see that you'd be pretty happy. If, however, you expect a certain lifestyle (say, similar to the one you grew up in) that you cannot afford as an adult, I cannot imagine that you'd be satisfied.post #73298 of 1090532/8/13 at 12:09pmpost #73299 of 1090532/8/13 at 12:10pmsorry reedo and mikey, you're both probably screwed.
"I sometimes wonder that we can be so frivolous, I may almost say, as to attend to the gross but somewhat foreign form of servitude called Negro Slavery, there are so many keen and subtle masters that enslave both North and South. It is hard to have a Southern overseer; it is worse to have a Northern one; but worst of all when you are the slave-driver of yourself. Talk of a divinity in man! Look at the teamster on the highway, wending to market by day or night; does any divinity stir within him? His highest duty to fodder and water his horses! What is his destiny to him compared with the shipping interests? Does not he drive for Squire Make-a-stir? How godlike, how immortal, is he? See how he cowers and sneaks, how vaguely all the day he fears, not being immortal nor divine, but the slave and prisoner of his own opinion of himself, a fame won by his own deeds. Public opinion is a weak tyrant compared with our own private opinion. What a man thinks of himself, that it is which determines, or rather indicates, his fate. Self-emancipation even in the West Indian provinces of the fancy and imagination — what Wilberforce is there to bring that about? Think, also, of the ladies of the land weaving toilet cushions against the last day, not to betray too green an interest in their fates! As if you could kill time without injuring eternity.
"The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation. What is called resignation is confirmed desperation. From the desperate city you go into the desperate country, and have to console yourself with the bravery of minks and muskrats. A stereotyped but unconscious despair is concealed even under what are called the games and amusements of mankind. There is no play in them, for this comes after work. But it is a characteristic of wisdom not to do desperate things."
just kidding.post #73300 of 1090532/8/13 at 12:14pmpost #73301 of 1090532/8/13 at 12:16pmpost #73302 of 1090532/8/13 at 12:22pmpost #73303 of 1090532/8/13 at 12:24pmpost #73304 of 1090532/8/13 at 12:27pmpost #73305 of 1090532/8/13 at 12:37pmQuote:

K, but have you read his journals, though? He basically just lived in his parent's basement, mooched off his brother, and spent his days walking as far as the nearest pond to observe the battling insects, divining from their actions great and immutable truths....sort of like a 19th century version of Jeff Who Lives at Home.
