...Not one of your best QoTD threads, have to say.
So generic. Dude, if you're going to be doing these, at least make them somewhat unique. I remember a poll about this exact same subject here a while ago (where you actually rated the quality of your life from 1-10).
Anyways, I don't think my life sucks (anymore). There's a lot of things that could be better—a lot of things that will be rectified once I can get a damn job—but it's not too bad. A lot of other people would consider my life as being extremely lame, but I'm okay with it.
I'm actually surprised for some reason at the responses. I actually picked yes, but only because I lack the one person I want most in my life atm, therefore I feel like my life sucks. But I also had a bad night last night, and that's not usually me. I'm generally a pretty optimistic guy and one of the few people I know who replies with "My day was great" when asked if I had a good day. lol.
But I do think people's response to this question will change on like a weekly basis. But I pretty much agree that most of us probably have it a lot better off than things could be or than other people we know.
Yep. Well, it doesn't suck like it did in school when I was younger but it sucks in a paycheck to paycheck, coworkers are idiots, my girlfriend nags, I might get fat if I don't exercise, Stephen Hawkins solidified my notion of lack of purpose in life and living, my hair looks like hell, something smells funny, too much dishes, 'have to do' things, too self aware, too narcissistic.
Also, the little nub on the top of my iPhone that puts it to sleep fell off into my fluffy living room rug and vanished.
It depends what you mean by "suck".
Is my life at a particularly high point? No. Could it be far, far better? Yes. So yeah, it does suck.
However, am I happy (at least for the most part)? Yes. Could my life be far, far worse? Yes. So no, it doesn't suck.
My life is awesome. I live with my girlfriend in a kick ass two story apartment. We have a huge comfortable bed, a huge versatile living room, a nice kitchen, a cozy (yes, that means small) bathroom with a shower and I use the upstairs bedrooms for making down hill skateboards.
Barely costs anything to live here because she scored a deal where she watches the owners kids every now and again instead of paying rent (yes, the owners are loaded).
I work at a local mart where the pay is above average, my co-workers are mostly awesome people, it's a upperclass store so there are no obvious drunks, drug addicts or other people who can be unpleasant to interact with (this is contrasted with a previous job where we've called for an ambulance twice for the same drunk).
I have a few close friends and a little chapter of long boarders as the people i most frequently interact with and the company is varied enough for me to question my social intelligence.
What has previously gotten me into the my life sucks mentality was the difficulties I had finding a job, not knowing what direction my life was going in and not being able to tell my parents which direction my life was going in. i felt pretty worthless. It could have effected my relationship a lot had I not been honest about my problems with my girl friend. She was my light house in those times where I didn't find any meaning in hanging out with friends, didn't get any calls back from the countless people I contacted about work and when I feelings were pretty much FAIL.
After getting the my current job at the aforementioned mart everything changed. I meant something, with a higher income I could contribute more at home, the happier me led to an even happier relationship, I spent more time with my friends and started to be able to appreciate the days I had off rather than just laying around not doing anything.
My next goal is becoming an apprentice under a carpenter. After making long boards for a year I've found out that I'd like to make similar work my profession. It's 4 years as an apprentice with night classes and obtaining some certificates on the side, and it sounds awesome.
I said no.
I'm unhappy about a lot of things (no job, no car, no money, graduating a quarter late), but at least I'm in one of the wealthiest/most free countries in the world, and in one of the best private universities in the region (even if it's all being paid with loans).
" I am going to school for next-to-nothing, live at home, and will be playing Halo: Reach, Fallout: New Vegas, Medal of Honor, and Call of Duty: Black Ops this semester. It could be better, but it could be a lot worse. "I'm in the same boat here. My life doesn't suck by any means- I'm getting an education and living at home, but it's boring as Hell when all my friends are living at school and just seem to be having way more fun than me. It's just very boring.
My lives fine, it's nothing special and sure every now and then I may think my life does suck but everyone feels depressed every now and then but my lives not so bad that i'm gonna go on Facebook and make status updating saying FML or posting my favourite lyrics from one of those Linkin Park songs.
So I guess I'm doing fine. :)
