    I didn’t think my mental health could get any worse than it already was, but now so much more is going wrong with my life and I don’t know how much longer I can keep feeling this way.

    Just beat Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order last night. I really enjoyed the characters and the plot, and the different planets you explore are so beautiful. But the navigational aspect of the game was so poorly designed in my opinion and it really hampered my enjoyment of the game. Would it have been so hard to maybe put fast travel into the game? In the beginning I was having a lot of fun and couldn’t put the controller down but by the end I was kinda tired of it and was relieved it was over.

    Still a really good game but it got kinda tedious so I can’t give it more than an 8/10.

    Pretty interesting stuff, I used to make a lot of ambient/drone tracks but I started to move more towards club songs. A lot of those tracks on that jungle beat battles page are really good, can't believe I haven't heard of it until now. Definitely feel you on the whole "producer music" thing, sometimes it seems more like there are more artists than casual listeners in these spaces lol.

    Here's my soundcloud if your interested, haven't posted anything in a couple months cause I've been busy but I got a couple of tunes I want to release soon.

    BRO are you literally me??? This is so similar to my journey in music I actually thought I wrote this lmao. I always drum on things and make beats in my head and it grew into a love for jungle and other forms of electronic music and I started to make my own music when I was 18. Drum programming and writing bass lines is like therapy to me lol. Original Nuttah is such a banger and helped me discover a lot of that old school sound, Venetian Snares and Autechre also influenced a lot of my sound. A lot of contemporary artists in the hardcore scene like Thugwidow, Sewerslvt, Bakground, etc all add their own flavor to the genre and makes it feel so fresh despite how old/unpopular it is now.

    Is there anywhere I can hear any of your music? It’s so hard finding other fans/artists in these genres, especially cause I’m American and these genres were never popular here.

    Finally started going back to the gym after a 3-4 month long hiatus, I was simply too busy to go but now I have a bit more free time so I’m happy about that. Gonna be focused entirely on trying to just be healthy and in shape rather than powerlifting and PRs. I slacked off on my diet as well but I’m getting back into my older, healthier eating habits. I’m going to be trying low carb, moderate fats rather than the other way around and see how I feel about it.

    After a lot of anticipation I finally beat Shin Megami Tensei 5 and I was very disappointed. I was really hoping that Altus would improve the alignment system from SMT 4, which was one of the aspects of that game that I felt really fell flat, but they somehow made it even worse. Instead of the ending you receive being a culmination of all the choices you made throughout the game, it’s literally just a choice you make at the last minute, which takes the fun out of wondering which ending you’ll get. The story isn’t interesting at all, even with all the side quests, and the characters are boring and super predictable. Also, the music in these games are very important to me, and I felt like even though it had some good tracks, overall it wasn’t as good as it’s predecessors in my opinion.

    I don’t want to rant too much more but even though I had my issues with SMT IV, I at least had a lot of fun with it, plus the soundtrack was phenomenal. This game in my opinion has nothing good about it at all, not particularly bad but just very average.

    Yeah I remember learning about that as well, basically being “scared” of your own success. I always thought that concept was bs until I started to experience it myself.

    I think a remote job would be great, especially since COVID allowed a lot of people to work from home. I also think you’re right about not seeing work as a life long commitment, it doesn’t have to be that way and I never really considered that, so thank you for giving me a new perspective.

    This makes sense, starting off with a good career and then using the money I make to invest in hobbies. Thanks for the advice :)

    Yeah I think I kinda used the wrong words with that coworkers comment. I don’t hate people at all, in fact I really enjoy working with others that I find chill or interesting. The problem is I think when you have coworkers you don’t like, you’re still forced to be friendly with them, even if it bothers you.

    So I just recently graduated university this year and am 21 years old. I live with my parents and am able to make good money by selling stuff on eBay, and I'm also a musician. I just seem so confused on what I truly want out of life. The idea of working a 9-5 job scares me so bad because its like I can already see what the next 40 years of my life will be. Wake up every morning, go to work, pretend to like my coworkers even if they piss me off, eagerly wait until my shift is over, waiting for Friday to come, and then during the weekend dread waking up on Monday morning. Rinse and repeat, while possibly having a family of my own along the way. Then I retire, possibly move into an old folks home, then die. I thought I wanted security by just getting a good job, moving into the suburbs, and living a stable and peaceful life, but now that I'm actually an adult that life sounds monotonous and boring and it honestly scares me.

    However, I can't tell if this is a valid way to feel, or if this is just me being "childish" or lazy. I thought my adult life would be so straightforward and that I should just go the safe route like everyone else says to do but I feel like I'm gonna be so depressed in the coming years because I'm not gonna truly enjoy my life anymore. I like what I do now because I don't a set schedule and I find it fun searching for things to sell and making a couple of dollars here and there off my songs, but I don't know if I can expand those two things enough that I can live off both of those things while having enough money to move out on my own. I thought I wanted to work in tech and i have a degree in a tech field (Informatics with a concentration in Data Analytics) but even then I still don't know if I like it enough to enjoy a job, even though I do truly love technology. Its like my heart is telling me that I kinda need "chaos" or instability in a sense that I want to do something new everyday to feel fulfilled and have fun, but then my rational mind tells me to just work at a decent job where I know I'll be doing the same thing everyday and live a quiet life. I don't know, I guess I'm just lost. Do you think I'm just acting like a kid, or do some of you feel the same way?

    The idea that questioning why someone would be attracted to you could upset them is a perspective that I never considered, and I thank you for bringing that to my attention. I think sometimes I get hung up on the fact that I don’t seem to fit the standard of “conventional” attractiveness so I feel like no one would want me, even though rationally speaking I know that not everyone has the same type.

    I know I’m my own worst critic but it’s so hard to believe that I could be attractive, no matter how much effort I may put into it. Also, I could be wrong here, but it seems like often times the idea of dating someone you don’t find attractive because of their personality seems to only apply to women towards men they date, I’ve never heard a guy say he thought a girl was unattractive but dated her anyway cause he liked her for who she was. I just hope I can find a genuine relationship like the one you have found one day.

    Lol I appreciate the compliment! But yeah as a woman I’ve been considered more masculine than other women, especially when I was younger, and it really bothers me now. Often times people would say that I “wasn’t like other girls” and at first I saw it as a good thing but I realize it’s just another way of putting down other women. I don’t like getting treated like “one of the guys” but it always happens to me, as I get older I seem to be perceived as more feminine though. Not that there’s anything wrong with being a masculine woman, that’s just not how I want people to see me.
