    Hey there. So far I lived a short but very full of things life. Being born in not so rich family, I grew up in one of the third world countries. By the age of 21 I was working on Wall Street, in the heart of Manhattan. So finally I got everything I was dreaming of. But it did not make me happy. Yeah, of course, it is much better to live like this because I do not struggle for food, place to live, nice car etc. Those wasn’t very pleasant problems to solve but it was cool solving them, achieving something etc. During that “achieving” time I had absolutely no time to get bored. So I am now. No hobbies, no nothing. Of course I can go reside my job, move back, and repeat everything all the way again, but what for? I am looking for something to make it my goal, something that seems unachievable and very attractive. But what is it? Any suggestions?

    Thanks 🙂

    A better more unobtainable job? some kind of record braking physical thing eg solo sailing or marathons etc? Help change other peoples lives?

    My suggestion is to go volunteer for a bit helping people in your community and see what happens. Or get some herion and see what happens. Its all good.

    That is a problem – I have no clue anymore. Before it was simple –

    1) Move to some nice to live country
    2) Get money enough to buy a place to live and a car
    3) Make a career

    All done. What is next? I am too young to retire.

    The goal is to be happy, of course. But the thing is that you can feel happiness only when you felt terrible not so long ago. You always need a contrast. That is how I understand it. Is there some other way to be constantly happy?

    Not at all. I am not rich. But I have enough for living. I still need to work to keep it that way. And I like what I do, this is kind of my hobby, something very close to it.

    Anyway, I tried to support children somewhere in Indonesia or something. I used to donate money to children there trough the charity. So was doing my wife (donating my money, haha :-)). The charity did not know we are husband and wife and we had different official addresses and bank accounts. Once we received two letters. Each letter supposed to be from one of the child you support. And you know what? They were from different children but absolutely identical except for the photo. So I gave up helping pure hungry children. Turned out it is a big scam.

    Volunteering is a good point too but with some cons. For example, I am not really good at something that might be useful. I am a geek software engineer creating trading systems for bad guys doing tons of money out of pure people all around the world. So I am useless to regular people needing volunteering help (and I am not sure if that is not a scam and someone else is making money out of you that way).

    I don’t trust people.

    What I need is more ideas on what to do? Not like reading jokes on the internets or something – that is all done. Something crazy and fun. Maybe I just need real friends?

    I think ur find starving Indonesian children arnt always too hot with their English writing. I very much doubt it was a scam at all.

    If you don’t want to help people (and they need everything including IT skills) then further your education or become a pimp?

    If you have spare time to give and are a programmer, you could find a nice free software project to support. Something you use or would use, and can improve. Sometimes you can get a good job through knowledge and ability to customise a product like that.

    David Rowe’s Web Site has lots of techie projects to help people worldwide, David there is always looking for help. I do use his echo canceller and send him words of support but the rest of it is all beyond my brain…

    unless you know what the projects are for or are prepared to learn its not very comprehensible – but its like looking upon a load of building supplies in a yard and saying its a load of old junk because you’re not a builder…

    Thanks for your advices my friends! I will think of them and do something 🙂 Psychedelic experience sounds attractive, haha! But I am definitely not trying drugs (I still can’t give up on smoking, that is in my task list for this month).
