Query by : My jobs are boring, and so are hobbies, now what??? (TLDR)?
Sup, mid-life crisis man right here.
I started Martial Arts when I was 5 years old.
By time I was 14 I had a black belt and many victories in kyokushin and by time I was 15 I had a black belt in Taekwondo and had fought 18 undefeated fights and was offered the chance to fo fight in South Korea, but couldn’t due to the fact of funds.
At 15 I felt like I had accomplished sufficient in gloved Karate and Taekwondo, so I tried Wushu and Muay Thai boxing and was on the school gymnastics team.
I took enormous influence from Martial Arts films, and I wanted to be a stunt man, and ultimately work my way up to becoming the very best action and stunt choreographer in the organization and putting together a team and that was my life objective, but by no means genuinely knew how to get into the industry and by time I was 21, I was working a job I absolutely hated and still couldn’t discover operate as a stunt man, largely because I lived in the UK and was thousands of miles away from Hollywood and the stunt industry here isn’t quite great, and I never ever got the income together to go to Hollywood.
So I joined the Army and I stayed there till extremely lately when lastly got out at the age of 33, and I have not completed any martial arts for 12 years and I can’t do something any a lot more.
I am back to a white belt, and trying to go to Hollywood at my age to do what I want to do would never ever take place now, not at my age.
I work a standard job and live a regular life, I’m at present studying Capoeira and Jeet Kune Do, and I do not really feel like a true martial artist, I really feel like some drone who does it in his spare time.
Is this it?
Regular life, is it that fascinating?
Is it worth it n the finish?
I help people, I tried that, I used some of my army cash to go to south America and create items and I have worked for charities, but I do not really feel fulfilled by something.
I really feel like hobbies are nothing far more than issues we do to keep ourselves occupied whilst we wait for death.
Its like playing a gameboy while in a waiting area and that’s all hobbies are.
I don’t feel fulfilled by a job, they are all the exact same, and its all about money.
When I wanted to work in stunts, I wanted to earn a typical wage, I didn’t want to work for income, I wanted to work because its the only type of job I locate fascinating.
When people start speaking about obtaining jobs that spend a lot, I tent to quit listening, due to the fact people who operate for absolutely nothing a lot more than lots of funds are the most boring and mundane men and women on the planet, I might be a middle aged loser whining more than the internet, but at least I am not a funds whore, that is a correct life of shame, however that’s all I ever get “Nicely go to college and get a excellent job” but they all suck.
Can someone clarify?
I went in the army, I’m in college and work now for a job I could care much less about and I have hobbies…
Marriage and children?
I would never bring a kid into this globe, and I believe marriage is the most pointless human ritual in background, and all the ladies I meet bore the hell out of me.
Are lobotomies legal?
Can I get rid of the component of my head that nonetheless desires to have entertaining that doesn’t involve alcohol and personal computer games and the oh so fun activities that involve staring at a screen?
I talk to my co-workers at my job and my class mates on a night and all they do is talk about their youngsters and their bills, and is that all life is???
