    I don't go to parties. Not the partying type. Some people like me for my bluntness but don't call me rude. i just don't like making small talk and agreeing with the herd mentality.

    If the internet has taught me anything, it is that there is a herd for every type of mentality. You're not some unicorn, my friend.

    Nothing motivates me, i just live. I would assume there are a lot of people who would say the same.

    If I'm being honest with myself, I really just like getting my dick touched by a pretty lady, and most of what I do is ultimately to maximise the frequency at which that occurs.

    I have always kind of looked at life with those amazing plate spinners and jugglers in mind:





    All the balls and plates represent not necessarily the things that are important. But the things you are investing effort and energy in.

    They could be good thing you love, need, and want. GF/WIFE, sex, money, children, friends, charity, activities and hobbies, quiet time, whatever is important to you.

    They could also be bad things like toxic relationships, addictions, wasted time, apathy etc.

    Regardless of whether it is a 'good plate' or a 'bad plate' it takes the same amount of effort and energy to keep it spinning. And the more plates you have, the less attention you can put on each.

    What I try my best at (with varying degrees of success) is doing the following:

    1) Really look at the plates I am spinning to make sure they are good plates. My favorite plates

    2) If I am dropping plates, I put some plates away and just spin fewer plates.

    3) I do spend some effort and energy trying to learn how to spin more plates better (This, ironically, in and of itself, is a plate)

    Make of that what you will.

    I believe that when we die, something happens. I’m sure it’s not sitting on a cloud with Jesus and dead relatives.i think the idea of finality after a relatively short existence doesn’t make sense to me.

    I don't live; I just exist.

    Nope.

    Get used to it.
