Too many things to reduce it to only 4.

1. Learning (including discussion, analysing people, reading, life experience, etc.)
2. Achieving something (very broad meaning)
3. Beautiful, clear weather
4. Funny things (comedies, people's wit and sarcasm... => actually quite selective)

Maciamo and Frank had to get deep on us.

If I were to be deep and serious and truthful, I would replace chocolate on my list and put 'helping someone'. When I am able to help someone, that makes me feel extremely satisfied and happy.

I will not replace sex, though... :p Or maybe I should put affection, intimacy, etc. etc., because it's not just the actual act itself that makes me so happy.

Warm, sunny, clear weather couldn't be replaced either. It's amazing the impact of the weather on my emotional well-being.

That is also why I wouldn't be able to live in Northern Europe and that I like Japan so much. I wouldn't be able to bear tropical weather nor 25 Hawaiian degree all year round, but Tokyo seems just fine, with mild, sunny winter, nice warm and sunny spring and not so bad autumn. It's just summer that is too muggy and uncomfortable :atsui: , at which time it is best to leave for Europe.

1. Adventurous days, Having things to do, sitting around makes me sad (i like to be active)
2. Getting things accomplished
3. Being neat, and clean
4. sex
5. Traveling
6. Good Weather... Though some days I like it to be sunny and hot, but I'd say my favorite weather would be daytime, where the sky is filled with dark clouds to where it almost makes it look night but u have faint light, lighting up the day as it pears through the dark clouds and having a cool air feel. Nothing beats it! :)

Winter.. wierd, thats all.. So what is it you like about cocaine? The taste? The smell? The deterioration of your nasal cavity? Or incase of injection, the scars left from needles? The horrid come down? Or the mental addiction?

Does not seem appealing to me at all, but to each their own.. :?

Exactly the kind of 'dont do drugs' bullsh*t I'd expect coming from someone who doesnt do them. And if you do, then you must not have had pure. Pure is beyond euphoric.

And I only use needles for heroin.

02-05-04, 03:35
Dont do drugs, coming from someone who doesnt do them, exactly my point of view a few years back.. Pure, ever had a trip to somewhere such as colombia, panama, brazil? You might know what I am talking about then... Your right, I am not a user any longer, that was my foolish days. Never done heroin or needles, or crack.. but they are all useless wastes of money in my opinion now. Have not touched them in years, now I look back and see how stupid I was... That is why I said to each their own..

RockLee
02-05-04, 13:30
Telling an addic that he doesn't have to do drugs is like trying to fly without wings...it's all a sad story...I only pitty the ppl who became addicted...they don't know how many things give you a kick without spending all your money on shit that f*cks up your body and rational thinking.. :souka:

I lived on mary jane for a long time and shrooms too. Those are the only things I tried, and no, it wasn't because I was some self-righteous "just say no'er". It was because I was just scared of anything harder. Anyway, all day, all night, 24/7, never stopped smoking. I wouldn't go back to that for anything. Just to remember the taste and smell of marijuana makes me want to throw up... :sick:

Exactly, what changed my perspection I was involved in too much of that, seen too many of my friends wake up if they couldnt get anything, they went back to sleep until they could. Ive seen people I knew tied up in their apartments and shot execution style, And seen friends stabbed over what? Things not worth my time of the day. I have done almost every drug you can think of, except real heroin (I have done synthetic aka oxycontin) and crack... But I look now and see just how STUPID I was for it.

Howaito-san,

Are you a physician? Or a vet?


For about 10 years now I've been taking care of people in their homes.Now days I do elderly men.
Most have had a heart attack, stroke, or some type of medical problem that leaves them unable to take care of
themselves. Many would have to go to a nurseing home
if they didn't have help to stay in their homes. I help them get up, bath, get dressed, and get their meals.
I do their house cleaning & laundry, grocery shopping,
help with their pets if they have any.Some are bed-ridden,
some dying, some paralized from an accident.
I feel it's real important to help them stay in their own home. Most older men feel more comfortable with a male nurse close to their own age. I usually stay with them for
a few years before they pass away. It's a great job, I get to be part of their families. Each one has something to teach me, kinda like a living library. I wish I had found this job when I was younger!

Frank, that sounds cool.. I bet there is some wise words said by the elderly! I think that is why I look up to my grandpa, and his brothers. You would be amazed at how much I look like him and his twin brother did when they were my age. Its scary! but anyways, I always hate when you find something, too late.

How would you say a person ought to prepare for retirement so as to be well and fully psychologically ready?

How would you say a person ought to prepare for retirement so as to be well and fully psychologically ready?

Well, I'm not certain how you mean that based on your previous posts. I simply meant save enough, pay off your debt, and be ready to accept and enjoy a life in which nobody, outside of your wife, cares what you do or say. Some people can't accept the loss of power/prestige/importance they had achieved during their employed life. By the way, I think that latter comment applies to both corporate executives and house painters. Both got to some position of earned respect that won't exist in retirement.

Thank you. Although I do appreciate somewhat the respect I've gradually earned over the course of my short career, I am very ready for what you describe. Frankly I wish people cared far less about what I say than they do now. As it is I struggle to be ignored; a state of life where I am effortlessly ignored sounds like bliss.
