    I Have A Post Graduate Degree And It Is Going To Waste

    I feel my life is going nowhere, i really am not one to just show myself off and apply to jobs or positions where I might have to take some risks. I have the same job i always had before i got my final degree and i feel trapped and wasting time or moving so slowly.

    Where Do You Think It'S Going To Go?

    Someone said that life was like digging a big hole and then filling it back in again. Ultimately pointless. Whatever you do is just filling ion time between birth and death. After I die it doesn't matter what I do in my life, I will be dead and gone and at best just a memory to...

    I Hate My Life

    I am 23 and I am going nowhere. For 3 or 4 years I have been stuck in routine but my problem is that I squander a lot of opportunities. I don't know why I do this. It doesn't help matters that I'm a closeted gay individual and I am more or less a recluse. Every night I wonder why...
