seems pretty bad. i haven't experienced much personally, but have observed plenty of it.

i'm not very well-versed in it, so speaking about it would be tough to do with accuracy.

what are your core motivations for living?
samX500
I don't know why but ever since the kyoAni tragedy, I can no longer think "It wouldn't bother me if I were to die tommorow", which is something that I've always thought since I started refeclecing on myself (Funny enough the one other time I couldn't think that was when I had finished watching Clannad and was waiting to watch after story). Ever since that tragedy I am trying harder to improve myself for their sake, which is why I have begun playing the euphonium and working out.

What's one thing you would take back if you could?
samX500
My highschool days definitely. I've wasted my chance to play in a band because back when I was in high school I didn't care about music. The best I can hope if I want to do band would be a collaboration on the internet with other people. Though before thinking about that I should get better at my instrument.

now... there is one thing i want back, only one... it is something i treasured when i was young, it is my harmonica... my dad knew i loved harmonicas way back, so he bought 2 of them... i lost them both (high chance my manipulative aunt stole those two, she stole my sibling's money, turned them into a slave as well), but if i could just have one of those, doesn't matter if its the more fancy one or not... i just want at least one back... i want to learn how to actually use that... i want one of my dreams to be true...

my parents doesn't want to buy a harmonica anymore... now i might be a bit too desperate, but i just want to save up money just to buy one... i just want one... one harmonica... i would be happy to at least have one... that is all i want...

I can't think of anything that used to belong to me that I regret having done away with, but I remember reading some book in primary school. I had loaned it out from the library and it was a really thick book, I think it was a story about the journey of a Scrabble player. I couldn't finish the last chapter before the book was due, so I returned it. I never saw it again. Looking back, I wish I'd finished it to figure out what happened in the end.

What advice would you give to people who easily get distracted?
samX500
Put yourself in a situation where you cannot get distracted. I can easily get distracted when I am working with a computer, so I try to avoid using them if I don't need them. I actually stay at school to study because I know that if I get back home to study, I will end up playing on my computer and won't get a whole lot of work done.

HOLY SHIT.

THE ABSOLUTE SAME.

so i've got a similar problem, and i tend to throw on every bit of work i can do while i'm still at school. i used to stay after-school in one of my previous high schools, in the classroom of a pretty interesting art teacher i knew, in order to work on my art projects. sadly, i had forgotten to reclaim them before i left the school due to moving out of my old home, back when it got sold. it frustrated me, as i was really proud of my charcoal piece.

anyways, i don't have anything great to offer, heh. i'd probably say the same thing. adapt to your circumstances the best you can and get done with whatever you can while you have the time. ask for help if needed, or find a method that works for you and gets you engaged in the work you do, like some internal goal or something.

ever wonder what others think of you, and what perspective they have regarding you as a person?
AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
Yes and that’s why even tho I don’t look like it, I’m self-concious all the time

I think it's only natural to have such questions.
I'd suppose everyone would wonder the same thing from time to time, even if they don't really care what others think of them.

Which philosophy do you follow, believe or is interested in?
Birdy
John Locke is my personal favourite philosopher. Empiricism used to be my #1 interest while studying philosophy and I strongly "follow" it. I also like Plato.

A fair question. I had an interest in philosophy, but was not exactly very serious about it. I never purchased any books to read up and research on it, and hardly spent much time going through everything, and I'd mostly delved into its more existential "answers", in a sense.

I think I had mostly sympathized with the ideas set in Absurdism.

Hmm. I glanced at it again and found something that sounded rather similar to my thought process when I escaped my own thoughts of suicide.

I had thought that "As pointless as life may seem, death would be even more pointless".

In the New World Encyclopedia's entry for Absurdism, it eventually says: "...suicide is not a worthwhile solution because if life is veritably absurd, then it is even more absurd to counteract it...", and "...the beauty that people encounter in life makes it worth living. People may create meaning in their own lives, which may not be the objective meaning of life but still provides something for which to strive".

So, yeah. It seems to describe my thoughts pretty well at times, but I should look into things more seriously at some point.

A large part of why I live, after all, is to create, and whether it be some sort of meaning for myself, or perhaps some solace for others to find, even something for me immerse myself in, it's all enjoyable.

I strive to create, and to see how things turn out.

i'm really interested about Nietzsche.
I haven't own any of his books yet since I'm poor atm but I've read about him.
Though it's a shame how he's been misquoted and his philosophies were misunderstood. The prime example of this is how he was misquoted by the Nazis in WW2 to further their ideals.

I think of myself as an utalitarian dabbling in social darwinism, although I find most philosophy highly interesting. I would love to own more classical works. Right now, I'm thinking I might try to grab some of Gilles Deleuze's work.

How do you view yourself now compared to 5 years ago?
Cahyono29
I Don't think i am change,still an introvert kid who had trouble talking to new people.i mean i want to change,but its quite hard
Same question
pentaqola
my view to myself compared to 5 years ago feels like a whole different story... i view myself as a main character... see myself on top of everyone else, perfect... i view myself as the perfect human, the best... my ego is so horrifying i would say anything even though it would hurt people so badly... that was who i was back then... and that was the final year that personality of mine is extremely visible, yeah it went on throughout my young days.

my view to myself now is a huge change compared to the past, yes i still see myself above people sometimes, but its not that extreme. that is because my ego went down so quickly, in just a few months after going to a different country, my ego dropped so hard that it even got my social skills with it. that caused my view of myself to change, i now see myself as a someone... nothing special... sometimes even lower than that... i don't want to achieve what my past self wanted, perfection... its impossible...

i'm just glad i didn't find this place when my ego was high... i would've been a nightmare to deal with...
