      We have moved to Discord   08/04/2016

      There has been a strong desire among the community to migrate to Discord for quite some time. As of today, our community will be using Discord and as a result, we will no longer be actively using our TeamSpeak Server.  The TeamSpeak server will temporarily stay active to help inform all of our move to Discord. Within the next couple of months, it will be shut down completely.  For a quick invite to our new Discord server, you can click here.

After making the decision to start taking my life more seriously, I started thinking about my living conditions. Right now, I'm living with 4 other people in a two bedroom apartment. There are two people in each room, and I sleep in the living room because I sleep like a rock. I'm almost certain I could be sleeping on concrete with a gunfight going on and still sleep like a baby. We have all 5 of our computer set-ups in the living room because most of us have different sleeping schedules and it makes it to where people can still be on their computers and let others sleep in peace. It makes for a fun enviroment but comes with quite a few downsides.

On more than one occasion, we've gotten on each other nerves with either the volume being too loud or laughter and talking too loud to hear what you're trying to listen to. I have a hard time focusing on things as it is, but it becomes almost impossible for me to do something about it with no place to get away from it all. If I ever want to start cracking down and getting stuff done, I need my own space.

Luckily enough for me, a coworker of mine has a room open for rent at his place. It would be about $80 more than what I'm paying now in rent but would come with so many added benefits. My own room, a washer/dryer, and air conditioning(Thank god). I would also be only a 5 minute walk away from my current job instead of the 30 minute drive I make now. So I decided to go for it and should be moved in by the end of the week. But this is has been sort of a bittersweet decision.

I've lived with my 4 other roommates for 2 and a half years now and have grown extremely close with them. I consider one of them to be my best friend. He let me move in rent free, with no job and paid for my food for 3 months while I looked for a job. If it weren't for him I'd probably still be living with my parents. I wouldn't even have my current job without him. Its just been alot of fun playing games, watching anime, and just goofing off with these guys, but I think this is for the better. It couldn't last forever.

Despite all that I'm looking forward to the change. Life can be bittersweet but it goes on nonetheless.

"If your everyday life seems poor, don't blame it; blame yourself" ~ Rainer Maria Rilke

After frying my brain over-thinking things the last few days, I've realized that I'm not satisfied with my current place in life. I always thought that as long as I found a good wife and had some kids, my job wouldn't matter to me as long as I could get by. But after some heavy self reflection I realized I wanted to do something I was passionate about just as much as having a family. I want to be doing something I love rather than working at a place where I count every second I have left before I can finally go home. The problem is, I haven't done anything to make my dream a reality.

I was so paralyzed by a fear of failure that I let myself become my own worst enemy. It hadn't occurred to me that while not trying meant I couldn't fail at anything, it also meant I would never succeed in anything. So you know what? I wanna try. Even if I fail a thousand times, even if I don't end up doing what I want, at least I can say I tried. Because any move in the right direction is better than living a bland life.

So I want you to do something for me. Ask yourself if your happy. Ask yourself if you're satisfied with where your life is. Are you doing what you love, or have you settle for complacency? The unexamined life is not worth living, so I must beg you to question yourself and your life. Don't settle for normal. Don't let your life filter through your fingers while you do nothing. Ask yourself if you are happy, and if the answer is no, then do something about it.
