    I graduated college 4 years ago.

    I had 2 job experience, and both of it is not even more than 5 months. I am not happy to it and keep on quitting. I am so bored in my life. I don't know why I feel this way...I feel like I am not contented on what I have and can't find happiness in what I am doing.. :(

    I am so over everything.

    I just want to scream and say "I'm done" whilst hiding under my bed sheets. My friends don't make time for me anymore, the word "love" is a myth and humanity is destroying the planet. What is the point of life? What reason is there to live for? Why do we use the word "hope" when...

    My purpose is to do great things

    for GOD in life. Love people, forgive, and die and be with The Lord. Before JESUS my purpose was temporal. If my purpose was for a boyfriend or whoever else, people die and people leave.

    I think it's normal though,

    you feel me? I guess it's one of those things you're suppose to figure out as you go. Otherwise it wouldn't be nearly as fun. Don't get me wrong, life can ******* suck. Still, I think part of the appeal of being alive is getting through those rough patches.

    My phone's screen brightness at the lowest is brighter than my future. I don't have any talents or things I like so much. I feel like everyone is moving forward and I'm just going backward. I think I'm making wrong decisions in my life but I keep on doing it anyway. :/

    I don't have a future plan,

    and even if it did I don't think I would be so enthusiastic about it. Everyone seems ready for the future and can't wait for it to come sooner. But my only wish is for it to slow down. Why can't the world slow down... but most importantly why can't I catch up.
