    MANE - Chasing Butterflies

    Such a banger of a song.

    This is such a nice fit. What is your height?

    [–] 17m Job made me shave... Jaqwan 1 points ago in amiugly

    It wasn’t even supposed to be an insult, yet you took it personally.

    I think the first thing you need to do in my honest opinion is tell yourself how much you want to change your life. Tell yourself when you wake up “I’m going to do something productive today” or whatever it may be, to motivate you into an idea of what you want in life. An example of this could be, saying to yourself “I’m going to apply for a job today” and throughout your day, going and applying for different jobs, no matter if you lack the experience or not.

    I also have a few other pointers that really helped me over the past couple months:

    1. Quit everything related to gaming.

    The biggest distraction for me was gaming. I’d hop on, play all day, forget chores that I needed to do, and overall, the day was finished. Unplug your computer/console and either store it away or just don’t touch it, and do something boring like duties around the house.

    1. Apply for absolutely anything and everything.

    When I was applying for jobs, I would only lookout for retail fashion jobs, and they only advertised once a week. About a month later, I said fuck it and looked at local grocery store jobs and there were dozens. Go look for jobs that you might think are stupid or worthless, because the experience you acquire will help you greatly.

    1. Work on your passions, no matter how out of reach they may feel.

    You said music was a very competitive industry, and I 100% agree with that statement, but it doesn’t mean you have to stop perusing it. Get back into making music if that is your passion, spend a couple hours of free time just looking through menu’s on recording software or making beats on instruments. Take your time with things, but also don’t think about it as a way you are going to become famous.

    I would personally start of with those recommendations. It’s entirely up to you with what you do in life, and if you want to talk about anything, chuck me a message!

    [–] Does anyone stop listening to music for a couple days due to not finding anything new they like? Jaqwan 1 points ago in CasualConversation

    Puppet Show by Umphrey's McGee is fantastic, really vibing to it!

    String Cheese Incident sounds super experimental to me, just like beck, who I love. I haven't found a favourite song but I will keep searching.

    Thank you for those bands!

    My goal this year is to see way more live bands, so I guess this is a great time to start. Thanks for your insight :)

    Rahul really does have a lot of learnin' to do.

    Everything looks really nice. I'm guessing you are quite tall, since your legs do look really slim, but it's all good.

    [–] Does anyone feel like theyre wasting their young adult lifes? Jaqwan 5 points ago in CasualConversation

    To me, teenage partying and adult partying is completely different, but I see what you mean :)

    [–] Does anyone feel like theyre wasting their young adult lifes? Jaqwan 3 points ago in CasualConversation

    I used to be as slim as a stick, never hated the way my body looked. Recently I've wanted to be bigger, but I love the way I look now, which is a good sign. Just gotta keep at it!

    [–] Does anyone feel like theyre wasting their young adult lifes? Jaqwan 57 points ago in CasualConversation

    I don't have that itch to go party, drink, drugs etc, don't think I ever will either.

    I've really made big changes over the past month, such as quitting gaming, getting rid of all the negative out my life, going to the gym more often, and so much more self-improvement activity.

    The best part of your advice is the focus. Focusing on future goals (Gaining muscle at the gym, dating and socialising, finding a career that's enjoyable) is the most important thing right now and I'm sick of not seeing results, so I have to put in the hard work and achieve that.

    We have a huge amount of time in our lives, and my goal is to use my time to better myself :)

    [–] Does anyone feel like theyre wasting their young adult lifes? Jaqwan 22 points ago in CasualConversation

    I 100% know it won’t “cure” it, but I should’ve said ease rather than fix.

    [–] Does anyone feel like theyre wasting their young adult lifes? Jaqwan 452 points ago in CasualConversation

    I currently feel like you. Had anxiety for my whole life, so missed out on pivotal moments in my teen years such as partying and doing whatever I like. Flunked school and lost 95% of my friends.

    Something I always tell myself is, I'm 19, I'm improving myself, I'm not sick or disabled and I can take life as quickly or as slow as I like.

    I have recently completed online schooling, this week I'll be going to the doctor to fix my anxiety and I'll ask a couple of people if they have any plans. I have the will to change and I will 100% be changing how I live my 20's - zero regret. I understand the hardships of life but I'm going to try and live my young adulthood to the fullest!

    [–] What song just kills you? Jaqwan 2 points ago in CasualConversation

    Seventh Heaven is a fantastic song.

    [–] Classic YouTube when all that played was Dreamscape- 609 Jaqwan 1 points ago in CasualConversation

    009 Sound System, aka, YouTube’s National Anthem. Good times.

    There is so much naivety with bitcoin and cryptocurrency in general in Australia. Not saying it’s the only place but god, crypto Facebook pages are absolutely cringe worthy.

    [–] Music is a drug Jaqwan 10 points ago in CasualConversation

    I'm in the same boat as you. The best parts of my days are listening to music at the gym and right before I go to bed. I love how everything is different in a way.

    I have yet to venture into listening to live bands, but that's something I am looking forward too.

    [–] My friend will be gone for a while, so now I have no one to really talk to. Jaqwan 1 points ago in CasualConversation

    ODESZA is great, haven't heard of Electric Mantis, but I will definitely give it a listen. I've been jamming to Beck and The Jungle Giants lately.

    What kind of music are you into? Usually, when my friends go on holiday I tend to find new music and listen to that band's discography.

    [–] I'm going to give my self a challenge for improvement each week. Week 1 - Posture. Jaqwan 3 points ago in selfimprovement

    I wear a back brace when I go on the computer. Definitely helps with reminding me to position my shoulders correctly.
