It's 11 pm. I'm almost drunk and I have realized I have spent too much of my life learning. I have spent too much time working. I may only be 25 but I still am dedicating up to 100+ hours a week to my job and it needs to stop. It has only left me sad alone and drunk. I hope others on here try to have some social life because sitting here drunk and lonely sucks. Maybe I shouldn't be so picky. Who knows. Enjoy life when you can.

    @alexbrooklyn next year I'm going to try to spend less time home drunk coding and try to get out more.

    @icycrash If its any consolation I got so burnt out during high school that I spent the whole of my twenties just coasting along more or less and only dealing with anything at the time it presented itself.

    I've now had zero social life ( zero as in I bump into friends now and they're more likely to mistake me for the reincarnation of Jesus before they are to realize its me ) going on three years because I finally found something interesting enough to see through and now I'm having to play catch up for all those years to get to where I want to be.

    do not feel so bad. believe me, most of social life is fake. relationships are fake.

    i wish i had spent less time in people and use it for my science.

    I spent all of highschool working on projects no social life. Now I can work 100+ hours a week. I don't even get to see my family much. I need a change.

    @icycrash you most likely getting lets say 5 digit salary in dollars . Take a vacation or something. I dont advice you to stop working hard. Once you have enough money you can stop working for others. But you need to work harder for yourself. Like your own business or somehing in early 30s

    @sandeepbalan it's a small 5 digit salary. I'm working on starting my own business, but getting the money together is hard.

    @icycrash I would say you are on the right path. If this is what you want you dont have to worry about wasting your life . About to start your own company in 25. I cant see where the 'sad' part is. I am of your same age. Dont even own a house. Dad issues, most of the time stays inside after work. Never drunk, . If i am gonna start i got like millions of stuffs out there as reasons . Maybe the 'drinking' part is the saddest part in your story.

    @sandeepbalan I think owning your own house is a little overrated unless you got a career you absolutely love. I don't own a house either. I use to live with my now ex now I stay some at my mom's. Sometimes at friends on long far off jobs.

    @icycrash daam. Neither do i have a gf or mom owns a home. You got both. Seriously man where the hell is the 'sad' part. Dude happiness comes from inside yourself. Not from entities outside

    @sandeepbalan The part that makes me sad is. I just haven't took any me time. My job has came before my relationships. That's why I'm single. It's less sad and more of pisses me off because it's my fault.
