I dunno... Just thought I'd ask..
Feeling like there are no goals that you could achieve? That your life so far has been a bit of a failure, and you are doing nothing to help it? Oh yes, every day. Every. Single. Day.

Not that I care any more. I'm doing evening studies because I have nothing else to do, no chance of getting a decent job and all. I'm going back to complete my military service next summer and having a chance of getting a truck licence, maybe that will help.

Thing that's pissing me off the most is that some of my friends seem to be getting all that luck for free. One of my friends found a girlfriend, sheer luck, and now he's spending most of the time with her. ****ing A.

Personally, I've felt like **** for a long time. I'm supposed to start jogging, but the roads are still full of snow, ice, or half-melted mix of both. I'm lazy as **** every day, and I know it. I'm not stupid, I know that, I'm just an underachiever for the lack of a better word. Never lived up to my potential, and seemingly, I can't have nice things either.

Life is a gift, but it's also a two-edged sword. I know I'm supposed to work hard to achieve anything nice, but it's kind of hard when there's no work in first place.

Feeling anything similar? I hope not. It's ****ing annoying, yet I can't complain about it without getting responses such as "you're just lazy", "get your ass up and go work harder", "stop complaining about it" and so on. And I don't complain often, usually I'm the first guy to cheer a friend on or help them if they need it. Feels like I'm taken for granted sometimes, even often.

But hey, that's just life. Full of choices. Sometimes the choice is "rock" and "a hard place", but it's still a choice and it's yours to make. There may be no quests, goals or "level-ups", but the game will end sooner than you realize. It may end any time, as a matter of fact, so for now? Try to achieve full potential of every single day. Do whatever the **** you want, instead of what others want you to do. Finish your studies, if you have any, as that should be your #1 priority. After you're done with that? Get a job on your field, if you're able to find any, but if not, make sure to find just any job you have a chance of getting, even if it's not in your field. Job experience is more important than you might realize. Take time to do a nice CV that will stand out positively, as that will help your CV to actually get reviewed instead of just glanced at.

And also, don't show ANYONE that you're not happy with your life, depressed or dissatisfied. Be confident, even if you have no reason to be. Good things happen to people who are confident about themselves. Remember though, there's a thin line between confidence and arrogance. DON'T CROSS IT. Bad things happen to arrogant people, especially if they can't back it up.

And lastly, I was flamed and laughed at last time when I gave advice, so remember that these are just my opinions based on my personal experiences in a country that's very different to yours. Things might work differently around there than they work here, people are different and we certainly are different from one another. Things that might work for me might not work for you, I don't know because I'm in a similar situation. I'm merely listing things that you should try.

Oh, and you wanted a goal? Cook a meal that's a bit better than what you usually eat. After that, find some new music to listen. Little things. They'll make you feel better, more positive and as such allow your brain to be more creative once you're in a better mood.

TL;DR: Nope, read it.
