Don't make excuses, find solutions. And don't talk about money, because if you do you aren't making any. Real shit.

In a few or a few dozen years you will see the emptiness of human life. You will see the futility behind status, career, relationships, finite bonds of love, and money, whether it is triggered by a loss of someone or something you valued or a grinding tedium of daily life. You will realise that, unlike in your teenage years, if you were suddenly to die, the world would not care too much.

When you go through this phase, know that it is common to all thinking men. Pick up some books that deal with existentialism and straighten yourself up. Don't grow old bitter and disappointed.

But enough gloom for today! I remember my 18th birthday. I celebrated it by smoking cigars and sipping booze with my friends on a balcony. A very liberating moment, haha. All the best, anon!

Hey anon. You don't necessarily have to be kind to everyone you meet, just don't be unkind. Ok?
Don't go to college/university just because its expected of people, if you're going to do it, make sure it is what you want, and don't dismiss trades out of hand.
If you're going to University, you should focus all your energy on the thing you're studying. It should feel like you're deeply immersing yourself in a hobby that you enjoy. Spend as little time here or playing vidya as possible. Use your energy productively. Always live frugally. Go to the gym and get in shape, it's not as hard as weak willed people make it out to be. Fuck tinder sluts for a while until you feel ready for a proper relationship. Don't waste your summers, try to have an internship, research, or job. Keep a journal. Literally just write down what you did and what your goals are every day.

Realize that most people are just drifting through life (that includes the people you hate from high school). With a little drive and direction you can surpass most people Anon.

-life isn't fair, get used to it
-when you gain something in life you lose another, always, and time is almost always involved in the transaction, not a real advice but more something you must be aware of.
-losing time doesn't necessarily mean wasting it, very important
-knowing what you need and above all what you don't, setting your desires accordingly, is key to happiness
-try to read a minimum, humans write things since a bunch of time and thought about lots of things very cleverly
-keep your brain stimulated, exercise and eat healthy

willpower and hope
you will need them, a lot, an awful lot

happy birthday

Always remember this one thing.. Happiness, it comes from within, not outward. No friend, partner, money, human, object or thing, can give you happiness. Pure enjoy and enlightenment comes from no one other than you, you are the source of your own peace and only you, can do that :) Happy Birthday my g <3 Btw, I took this photo on the evening of one best days of my life, I hope this translates over to the day you're having :)

>2000 kids can now use this website
What a horrible night to have a curse.
My advice to you is to expand yourself as a person. Be multifaceted, always have something interesting to say. I don't meant to learn a bunch of stuff, I mean for you to go out and do a bunch of stuff, and get passionate about things. It sounds hard, and trust me, it is. It's one way to make yourself appear a little more charismatic. As a one-dimensional person, I find it incredibly difficult to leave a lasting impression on people.
If you're going to uni, don't put too much attention on studying. It might seem like a meme, but the main thing about university is making lasting relationships. It's something that I failed at, and sadly it's not something you can pick up easily later in life.
I believe that simply living is going to become a lot harder for younger generations, so I wish you the best of luck in your future. We're all going to need it, but your generation is gonna need it.

I know that this is all horribly cliched, but I've become wholly convinced that, in order to love life, one must love the living. Any form is defined by and interacts with its container, and the cycle repeats, ad nauseam. Learn to appreciate the world around you, and do what you can to take care of it, before it's too late. Don't become to cynical, it's not an easy hole to come out of. Happy birthday, anon

be yourself
by that, i mean be your honest self
the first thing that comes to your mind during conversations, or anything really, are your real thoughts - use them, do not filter yourself
you will attract likeminded honest people, and the fake ones will leave

and always improve... do not compare yourself to other people, for it is chaotic. compare yourself to the version of you from yesterday.
