Oh I know. Loans should not be taken lightly, and I can see how you would be hesitant if your career goals are still up in the air. They're just a necessary evil for some people.

I don't know how it works for the UK, so I can't say for sure we have it worse. I actually don't have many problems with it. Subsidized loans are available so the government pays the interest until students are finished with school, and students in my field very nearly have a guaranteed high paying job once they're finished.

So they're still a good avenue for lesser fortunate people to seek higher education, it's just up to people to be responsible and ensure they can carry the burden once they have graduated. Hopefully higher interest rates scare off some more students from taking out unnecessary loans to finance less-than-helpful degrees (you know who you are! lol).

Man, I have a very active mind. I'm amazed how I can take the littlest detail and absolutely blow it up and eventually stress over something so unimportant and dumb. Like someone forgetting to do something for just one example. It's annoying.

@Retro_on_theGo: You and me think identically. I understand what you mean... I usually (mentally) beat myself up for stupid unimportant things and usually forgets about simple things. I hate it too..... >:[

Even though I have beaten many of the games I'm still playing, I play them not to win, but to have fun.

My life right now feels like its stuck in a rut. I'm just sitting around, wasting time literally doing nothing. I know I need to get proactive and start trying to find a new job, think/plan about the future, ect. but I can't find any motivation and feel completely hopeless...

I feel the same way, bro. Didn't get the job I was expecting this summer and I already finished my studies for now so I'm just sitting around doing nothing. I played F-zero X so much today that I got sick of it and stopped mid cup. I've been looking for other jobs to no avail.

@WingedFish, I feel you. My summer has basically been me sitting around doing nothing, crying, doing unwise actions to forget about pain, with the occasional good moment here and there. I really need a job as well, and I'm very fearful about this next year and what it might hold- mostly regarding college after high school is over. The future seems very blurred for us and it's definitely hard to make sense of what to do with ourselves at this moment in time. I hope the best for you in this time <3

@Retro, I can also relate to this. We just have to do our best to not let the little things get the better of us, but it's not easy~

I believe in make believe~

@Retro, @Emaan My situation is even worse. Forgive this long ramble, but this always feels like the best place to let out my feelings, since I don't really have any real world friends.

You see, I've been through two jobs within less then a few months. First was at McDonald's, where I was at for a while. Then I got offered a job at a dog boarding kennel, which I quickly took and dropped McDonald's over. And I loved my job; working with animals was something I've wanted to do ever since I learned how to talk. But in less then two months, I got fired and was told I wasn't fit for the position. That was the biggest blow to me in recent memory, to be told that I wasn't any good at my childhood dream job. I have no idea where to turn now; not even video games give me much enjoyment anymore.

Every aspect of my life since has been met with total apathy. Even my beloved pets have been neglected, because I just don't feel like anything in life is worthwhile now. All in all, I feel absolutely miserable. In fact I'm crying as I write this...

Not something I just found out today. It's just today's events proved it. I thought he was a good friend and reliable and I've sacrificed so much for him only to be beaten with the same truth for the 100th time that he's only using me. Can't say I'm sad but rooming with him next semester is bothering me. It's too late to change it if you thought about the suggestion. I have too much stuff to worry about.

@WingedFish That's sad to hear. :( Don't worry, buddy! Just stay positive and keep going. I'm sorry you have to go through that. Don't give up, there's always something better waiting to happen. I'm sure it's tough for you right now but just keep moving forward. That's why we have eyes in the front of our heads instead of the back. We can see our goal and keep getting closer to it. If they were in the back we'd never move on because we'd always be stuck looking at the past. I can only hope your luck turns around so you can be happy again.
Nah.
I'm sure it will! <3

Don't worry, @WingedFish, I know how you feel.

I had great grades in high school, and then I got a job at the same place my dad worked & was going to university, and things seemed like they were going great.

Then, I lost all my scholorship money because I got a 3.4 GPA instead of a 3.5 GPA, and with no scholarships, I had to quit. A few months later, I lost my job, because I had to get dental work done, but they didn't want me to take the time off.

I've had one job since then, but I was late too many times because the cab drivers I used didn't like using the highways (they liked to zigzag their way around town, based on routes they were comfortable taking, and sometimes be slowed down by picking up more than one person).

I was 20 then, and here I am at 22, and still havent found another job (employers scared about my short duration at my past jobs), living at home, and I feel absolutely useless half the time, when my parents are having financial troubles (and my dad constantly gets on to me about not having a job, and when under stress, threatens to kick me out of the house).

@Retro, I have severe anxiety and manic depression so I'm often happy then sad the next moment, so I can understand me coming off as cheerful on here. Then again I'm not going to post negatively all the time on here because I use NL as a getaway of sorts, along with video games in general, so discussing them also is a nice reprieve. Back to how things affect me easily and how I said I can relate to you in that aspect, I've just been experiencing major instances of loneliness and sadness due to problems with friendships, self-identity, and other things. I don't really look at crying as much of an occasion anymore, it just happens- very often some nights. Especially this summer in which I don't have a job, most of my friends are off on trips, my parents are away at work, my sibling is away at college, I am at my most lonely. It's probably due to this that I am more vulnerable and prone to letting my thoughts get the better of me, because sitting around day after day with nothing but ourselves can do that~

@WingedFish, again, I am deeply sorry to hear this. I hope things work out in the end for you~ Happiness is certainly something that we can't take for granted because we don't know when we will reach those times when it seems like it is so far away. I'll keep you in my thoughts <3

I believe in make believe~

I have a Belkin router which is a potato and it hates my 3DS so I find it difficult to engage in peer to peer gameplay across the globe.

@Retro_on_theGo Hey, man. It's VERY common to be like that. Even people that are practically perfect in every way like me :D are like that at times. And don't worry about whether or not you'll get a job, I'm sure everything will be alright in the end.

@Emaan Yeah... I'm sort of the opposite. I come off as morbidly self-deprecative and depressed in a lot of my posts (don't forget overly self-aware) and in real-life I'm all smiles. On the subject of your situation, just remember what I always say: The darkest hour is just before the dawn.

@WingedFish I know sometimes life can be depressing or painful. I'm not going to make up some lame speech about how it isn't because that would be a lie. I'll just say that you aren't alone. Everyone in Nintendo Life (including yours truly) will be there with you through all of it. I myself have gone through some tough times as well (though not nearly on the level of what you're going through) and I've always gotten through them knowing that my friends in Nintendo Life will help me.

@Wingedfish I feel the exact same way. I graduated (barely) from high school a year ago and it seems like things were going great. I got a job painting from someone I know and things were going well. Then it went downhill. I hated painting, and I was constantly being yelled at for being too slow. Eventually I got fired.. Since that I haven't had a job, aside from doing some shoveling in the winter. I hate feeling like a bum without a job, but I just get way too nervous (I feel sick to my stomach at times) about applying for a new one out of fear of not being fit for it. I hate being autistic..

I was bored out of my mind today. The kind of profound boredom that leads people to do things they'd regret later for a bit of short term excitement. It's a little sad when I realised that all I'm doing right now is waiting until semester starts so I can drown myself in work again.

and @WingedFish I totally get where you're coming from. A lot of my uni friends are realising that the dreams they used to have are in reality dead ends, and it's not an easy revelation to get over. I hope that you'll find something enjoyable soon :(
