Why do I feel like I'm just passing time? You are. If you have nothing to do and no desire to help anyone in any manner and are set up financially for the remainder of your life. Then you are literally just waiting to die. It sounds like you might as well live it up. Buy the things you enjoy, travel, see the world Really though, the world is much less valuable without someone to share it with. Make friends, search for the 'woman of your dreams' after all you've got plenty of time to do it right?
No reason to settle. Travel the world with those friends or love interests. I know you said you have no desire to help people, but I know you said you have no desire to help people, but you might find it something to give you purpose.
Start or help a charity, be a friend to someone you know who is in need. I'm not rich by any stretch of the imagination, but nothing makes me feel better than the look in someone's eye when I see a need that was never voiced, and erased a problem. The look of pure relief in the eyes of even strangers and knowing that you perked up their day, re-established their faith in the world can be very empowering and uplifting.
Still, your choice, enjoy life as best you can, good luck. Institute of Economics in Japan for my book on property in Philippines. Morgan for my same book Plus a lot of private feedback, say with the book on buying foreclosed property in Japan. Some books I write have no sales.
But he's too much of an idiot. I'd sooner not encourage him. He's beneath it. A lot of the books I write are half finished. Others are a lot of Notes. Learn, grow, and evolve. Delve into a field, explore Spiritual self-actualization is another excellent thing. Basically, if you sit around on your ass, then yes, you're waiting to die. Ironically, life gives you back the most when you invest effort. Try the very difficult task of meditation - concentrating on nothing We are living in one of the most dynamic eras of history, there is a lot going on Surely you can find something that interests you.
If you just focus on satiating your senses food, sex, physical enjoyment , you will be unhappy and empty. I'm not suggesting you give those pleasures up, but there must be more to life in order to find happiness. There is too much people. The only thing I look forward too is I am feeling worthless because of all the time I have wasted.
I feel like giving up everything: my work, savings, loved ones and running away to far away land and taking some time to discover myself, some It was insane. And his brilliant improvisation and inspiring leadership to rescue his whole expedition after the loss of the Endurance was astonishing. And its framing — the first and last verses are very similar. I actually learnt it for a recent folk club Dylan night reported here , but the words irritated me too much in the end.
The tune is known as The Croppy Boy and gets used a lot. See also McCaffery a true story, surprisingly enough. If not for an eleven-day blizzard unheard of at that time of year he would probably have made it to One Ton Camp, which would have given him, Bowers and Wilson a fighting chance of travelling the rest of the way back.
As for Nansen, belle, the Fram expedition was daring but entirely sensible — the insane part was deciding, apparently on the spur of the moment, to leave the ship halfway across and ski towards the pole, trusting to luck for recovery.
Obviously this implies that two of the party were able to get to One-Ton even in the conditions they actually encountered, but elected not to. By using hardier dogs instead of rotten ponies, Amundsen was able to start earlier in the Antarctic spring, on October 19th, whereas Scott started on November 1st.
That was a lead of 13 days. Amundsen reached the Pole on December 14th, 35 days ahead of Scott. And they were back to their base at the Bay of Whales on Jan 25th. So yeah, he ran into worse weather. But he ran into worse weather because his whole plan sucked.
Dogs were hardier and more effective than ponies; dogs were faster than man-hauling. Scott had to start later, and he had to go slower, because he preferred ponies and man-hauling over dogs for stupid pointless reasons.
And his whole polar party died horribly as a result. Spring starts in November, summer is Jan and Feb, March is autumn. Interesting to hear the latest interpretation. It always struck me as weird that none of Scott, Wilson, and Bowers made any serious effort to make a dash to One Ton Depot and return with supplies.
Surely with an unloaded sled they could have got there in just a few hours if there were any break in the weather? Or they could have built hang gliders!
Out of their tents! It would have been awesome! They were only 11 miles away. But if you compare the apparent passivity with which Scott, Bowers, and Wilson lay in their tent starving for 11 days, against the can-do spirit of Shackleton, who saved his whole expedition after the loss of their ship by making a journey of hundred of miles in an open boat, and then crossing an unmapped mountain range to reach a whaling station, the comparison is striking.
