The first post that no one ever reads

They say when you're going through a confusing, troubling or "interesting" time in your life you should write about it. Writing allows you to get things off your chest, relieves you of that stress so you don't end up relieving that stress by stabbing everyone at the local supermarket.

My name is Damian. I've just finished my third year of University and I have no idea where I'm going with my life. I don't know what I'm going to do with this Science degree or what awaits me when I finally graduate. For all I know, I could be on the brink of failure. Eternal joblessness and living in my parent's basement until they kick me out.

I'd rather die in a car accident than become like this.

I know I can't be the only one stuck in this purgatory, there must be other people who have experienced or are currently experiencing the same things I am. Maybe I'm being too pessimistic, but I find it's better to expect the worst only to be proven wrong.

So come with me, as I share my story. And hopefully, it won't end with me going on a rampage at the nearest Superstore.

 It would make for a good blog post though.

  3. Unfortunately, I'm not in the same boat. I never made it to college, but I did spend an inordinate amount of time in my parents guest house. Now that I'm on my own, I still can't say it gets any better. Good luck to you, though.

  8. Hey man, it'll be alright. :D If it *is* hard, sweet, it just makes you stronger. If you *do* fail, it's just one of many to help you hone your skills, so that when you DO succeed you've done it with hard work and dedication and you will simply feel SO proud to just be who you are once you hit that moment. That moment is what you live for.

  12. It's actually incredibly common to feel the way you are describing. I've definitely been there. My philosophy is to flow through life like water. Just keep living day by day, taking the path of least resistance and you eventually end up exactly where you are meant to be. It will all be ok in the end, just keep up the hard work and you will get what you deserve :)

  35. Stuck in pergatory? Like a comment on an old post that may never be read by anyone.

  36. i have been stuck in purgatory for years. i live with my mom or with friends who run a soup kitchen, or both places as i'm doing these days. i have no money and can only afford the bus between the two. good thing i get free food at both places. getting ahead, or just not being left behind in this world means plumbing contacts, which i don't do a whole lot. thus, my life.
