    Okay, we all are/have been to school, correct? (well, most of us), but I just wanna know one thing...... when you die are you gonna be proud of what you accomplished in life? I mean, think about it..... you study hard through highschool and college, basically watching your youth years pass you buy while drowning in science and math projects.... then you goto college, same shit.... become a doctor or whatever, workin 9-5 doin the same shit everyday, maybe head out to the bar for a drink, but everything is much the same, your making money to pay the rent in order to survive, but in order to survive your time is overtaken by your job, so in actual fact, the job you are working to keep you alive, is actually taking 95% of the life anyway....... so its fucked..... I just wanna know how yall feel about this...... we never know when we are gonna pass on, so if you were to die tomorrow, would you be proud of how you have lived your life....... just something I was pondering.......

    You know what man......
    to sum it up for me....
    Sadly enough I would not be very proud of myself because I don't feel very fulfilled!

    Learn shit for and by yourself. It's cheaper and you'll grow better mentally.

    crazy positive thinking

    I wouldn't totally be proud, but I'd be pretty content with my life. I know that I've passed up plenty of opportunity's in my short life already, and I know I'll pass up many more and have more regrets, but I love life, and would appreciate what short time I've had. I'd be proud to an extent of what I've done, 'cause I have been holding pretty damn true to my beliefs and views so far.

    i'll be relieved more than anything.

    and research shows that when you're paid for something you love, your enjoyment for it declines.
