You get hope. By the time your 35ish, you now know how high you can go, you know who you are, you know what you want.

If you need any help “figuring things out”. Message me. I wish I had a bit more guidance at your age.

I think I got it relatively figured out, learn as much as I can for free, get a job, pay my mothers debts/credits, get a stable ground, work on my gardens, invest in them.

Yea, find a job that has guaranteed “job progression”. Lots of people pick jobs like cashier for a small town plumber company or something. A place where there’s no where to go, not now and not in 20 years.

If you do electrical or plumbing, they pay for your school and support you to get the licensing.

If you start right now, you will be dead rich by 27.

Am learning IT at the moment, becoming a programming engineer, but I believe that I can also easily learn Mechatronics and some other things that are available after I finish one thing.

IT is a good career. Programming engineer is a completely different job. If you want to program, you have to learn different computer languages.

Sitting down, picking a job, and focusing on that job is something a lot of young people have an issue doing.

No matter what you do, if you focus on becoming a professional, you will end up doing really well.

Listen to this man, Gravi. Be the best you can at one thing. Don't worry about being good at a lot of things. You want to be in demand.

Pay your mother’s debts? What?

[–]GraviAss We Can[S] 1 insightful - 3 fun1 insightful - 2 fun2 insightful - 3 fun -  (2 children)

A loan there for car, another loan for smthin.

Bruh, you are not responsible for your parent's debt. If you are of means and she is poor and you want to help and can help, that’s cool. But, if your mom is stupid with money and you feel obligated out of guilt to help her, you need to look deeper into that before you go down that road.

Don't get stuck in supporting your parents forever. If they are not good with money and you bail them out, they will get into debt again.

Congratulations on not being a shota anymore. To be honest, even 19 isn't shota. You're still a youngun though.

[–]GraviAss We Can[S] 2 insightful - 4 fun2 insightful - 3 fun3 insightful - 4 fun -  (0 children)

Being almost 2 metres and probably around 100 kg is a shota? Holy shit, I must be like a gigantic one then.

[–]1Icemonkey 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (2 children)

I just looked up “shota”. Pretty fucking gay man.

[–]LarrySwinger2 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (1 child)

I just meant it in the sense of little boy, without a sexual undertone.

[–]1Icemonkey 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

I figured, but I had to look up the term as I had never heard it. There’s some really sick stuff out there.

Arthritis, tinnitus, and crippling back pain is all you're entitled to once you're no longer young and invincible post 20.

Don't have Arthritis, I use an ergonomic mouse, will probably switch to an ergonomic keyboard too.

Tinnitus I've had all my life and back pain is when I slack too much on the computer or if I work too hard.

Just more or less the usual, learning, doing shi, but at least I have 2 gardens to attend to and work on, gonna prep some stuff to grow there again.

What I do want to do is to travel to Skrunda or some other places that have abandoned stuff to explore.
