Patrick's gonna be a loser in life
Aeon Posted: Wed Feb 18 12:17:25 2004 Post | Quote in Reply  
  No matter how hard I try and promise myself that I'm gonna go to college and do all my homework and everything... I just can't. Something in me won't let me. If I don't make all A's and B's this semester I lose my scholarship. Yet I have no will to try. I have no inspiration... I already missed my first exam in one of my classes and have missed the most I can in my other class, however I am doing extremely well in my writing poetry class and religious studies class... the other two don't take attendence... but I still miss the classes and feel bad. I'm a loser!



sorry to whine.

  Only have yourself to talk for that.


I know a lot of people who are like you when talking about schoolwork and so on.


I'm one of them but if one of my grades starts to go down I make sure I get it right again.


Just show some character and think of the money you'll make

  you're not a loser. (I'M a loser, okay buddy, it even says so on my shoes.) sounds like me all through my final year. things work out, dude. i mean, I know that cliched and all that. but hey, its what I've found. i have faith in you.

and if it doesn't work out, we can go on the dole together. dole-bludging is fun. lol

  I know what you mean patrick, I get like that in some classes. I go to them all, but I don't try as hard as I should, and I know I could get straight A's if I put a little more effort/time into things...I don't know how to fix it for myself, so I dunno what to tell you, except that it doesn't make you a loser.

  I know what you are talking about.
It's called laziness.
I think everybody has the same problems, exceptions are the extreme workoholics. Taking the easy way out. At least the easy way at that particular moment, but not necessarily in the long run.

Decide what you want. If that scholarship isn't important to you, why bother. If you don't want to go to school, no problem, there are other things you can do in life.

But if you want that scholarship stop telling yourself you can't do it. I know, it is so hard to begin, there are so many excuses and so many other things to do... But it gets easier when you begin and you do it the next day and the next day. Shut down the computer and start studying.

  Don't fuck school up man seriously I know a lot of people who have grown to hate themselves because of it.

You can achieve a lot by discipline.

  If I was in school I'd probably be doing the same. Probably worse.

What are you aiming for--brain surgeon? You said you'd be happiest if you could just write. Unless you have high ambitions, why make yourself miserable in school?

Pay the bills, keep ahead of writer's block. Chill out!

dont be sorry...maybe we need more losers...the way i see it is everyone i know gets up everyday to some monotonous life where they spend all their time working a job they hate to buy things they dont need and are never satisfied with...i dont claim to have advice, except to say that whenever i hear someone plead with people the way u have in this post everybody says the same thing- buckle down, just stick with it, make sure you stay in school, u shouldnt quit etc...id say the opposite - do what u want man, dont be satisfied with what everybody else says cuz everybody else has been doing the same thing forever and theyre all the same anyways...sometimes i feel like i should pity people who have it all together, cuz without desperation i wouldnt ever accomplish anything...suffering and hunger and pain and confusion are part of the experience of being a human, take any of that away and what do you have?
man i say do something wild, something that hasnt been done, that u would be advised against...like they say in fight club, never be complete

maybe you're in it for the wrong reasons. i only get things done so my friends dont suffer. thats about it. so... i put myself into situations where my friends are counting on me. its the only thing that gets me going at all anymore.

find your reason.
you'll get movin.

  College isn't everything, but sometimes it helps. It really depends on what you want to do with your life. Figure out what you want to do and just go do it.

  college isn't everything. but the paper is worth something.

it's sad cos in the real world, most people are just interested in a paper.

somehow people just give more credit and respect to that.

i'm not too sure abt the rest of the world... but in dingapore, the basic requirement these days is a college degree.

a diploma will get u somewhere but in the long run, u'll just see everyone else rise above u in the hiereachy.

that's why i says, join the resistance.
all u need is to stick your middle finger out and say fuck all to everything

  There's no easy answer to this. No matter where you are, paper qualification is important. If you're not performing well in your studies because you're not interested in your subjects, then I'd say take some time (even if it means wasting a year or two) to find and study what you're really interested in. Very naturally, you will do well.

And as many have pointed out, that doesn't make you a loser. Five years ago I quit my job to bum around for half a year. During that time, GT came about. And it ain't too bad. And I haven't worked a single day ever since then. And that ain't too bad.

hey Ms0... dun think of it that way...
rememeber always: it's not you... it's the rest of the world that's messed up...

  i had 2 friends in uni who were my fellow founding members of my production crew. they were bloody geniuses when it came to production and were singled out by the western australia film community to be people to watch out for in the future.

but one of them was kicked out from uni cos he failed his core units (which were theory units, super boring shit) once too often.

it's a waste of fricking talent cos most of the production houses want to see a cert.

he eventually got back into uni, and i'm checking on him once in a while to make sure he passes those.

people sometimes don't see the talent and rather skip the important stuff in life and prefer to judge a person's caliber with grades and papers.

you just hit the nail on the head, ant.
You're going along doing what's necessary to get by in life, and then one day you stop for a breather, look around in disbelief and shock at the deep hole you've dug yourself into, and say, "How did this happen? When did this happen? Why did I let this happen?"
and then, realizing at this point there's little you can do about it, you pick up the shovel and continue to dig.


*now there's a zippity do da happy post for ya! lol

Excellent! That's the way it should be. You should be scared if there's a low standard expected of you. What little I know about you Jizzy I do know that you're intelligent, and will have few problems meeting their academic expectations. I appreciate higher expectations from me. I see lower expectations as an insult to my intelligence.
