i am coming to the end

Postby User » 07 Dec 2018, 17:29

after three years i am coming to the end of my time here in myanmar, the golden land, the grand military dictatorship, the nation of eternal ethnic conflict that has never seen peace since its independence from british colonialism in 1948

i signed my final lease until the end of june next year. i will work at the brewery here until mid-march, do this project for a whiskey company writing an anthroplogical recipe book on cocktails here, spend a couple of months in australia doing university stuff, come back to myanmar to run a language course and make some $$$ and then ... i have to write my phd thesis. i will have another year of scholarship funding but i have no idea where i will be to write. australia? some isolated country town in uphill southeast asia? the united states? singapore?

what are all your plans for the next year, goals, dreams. some of us are in long-term relationships, some MABBers are righteously single, some steady jobs, some not so ... what do we all want out of our thirties (or forties for the few old bastards on here) ?

we're gonna die soon! :xx:

I'm still pretty much in my day job as a graphic designer for the marketing and communications department of an American financial services company (we deal with SIFMUs, securities, trade repositories, etc.). The pay is good and the benefits are amazing; I can work remotely for as long as I want. I may stick around for a while. I'm in the process of reviving my freelance design jobs which I'm doing on the side. With that combined with my day job, I'm hoping to raise enough funds to buy my own house.

So far so good, no loans/debts that I have to pay (having no kids ensures this :idea: ). Just my annual personal insurance plan where I pour in my annual bonus.

Real estate is definitely more affordable outside Manila. A decent place in Manila’s upper class communities will cost you around USD$ 660,000, more or less. That includes living in a gated community with guards roving around and shit. Of course, a home with lower standards will cost less.

luke out there living fucking life. good on ya mate :xx:

when im not working overnights (at fucking walmart) i am home on mabb, youtube, and porn. listening to music, eating shitty, greasy food, and sleeping.

that is literally the extent of what I do. I'm not complaining, I have money in the bank and adore my solitude. I'm content in my seinfeld episode of nothingness, but after reading lukes plan for the next few years, I feel extremely inadequate :chetty:

Just moved into a new place maybe two months ago with my womang and with the addition of our dog, things have been looking up.

Need to start doing more voice over auditions to see if I can actually break into that industry. Once I can get it rolling it should be pretty lucrative. My current job isn't terrible, but if I can make more and work less while doing something I don't dislike that would be ideal.

luke come to usa

i am in a weird place. life is stable, but i have tired of everything. work has no surprises left, games are as stagnant as ever, i have no inspiration, social life has shrunk as marriages and kid-having exploded. i am not particularly bitter about that, it just sucks to lose that outlet. five year anniversary is coming up at work, supposedly there is a new position in store for me, but if it's on the same payscale i'll start looking outside. been marginally involved with a new lady recently but she is a tough nut to crack and anyway it probably won't go anywhere, she's mega sharp and i'm the same dullard i've always been.

new apartment soon; same address, just more space to cram all the stupid clothes and other possessions i've amassed. none of this is building towards anything and the west has doomed the entire planet to boiling seas, we're past the point of no return so what's the fucking point of anything really

righteous living in this thread. skinno should do voice over. this is fact :judge:

i thought fargo was cool except for the weather and the politics also

shadowalk i slept with the grand total of two burmese women before finding the new girlfriend last november. we've been together a year now, she is from india but we live far apart so mostly do holidays and stuff, now we are figuring out if we can level up the relationship or not. she is applying for jobs at harvard, singapore, yale etc. she will finish her phd before me and i only need to write so it make sense to follow her, but i'm not really sure if it's the right thing to do ... i mean then i basically go into a marriage scenario. i like long intense periods with her and then long intense periods not with her-- i haven't lived with a chick for three years now

if you decide that following is the correct thing to do, she should get a job at harvard and then you can both move to the greater boston area and we can all hang out on weekends :bulb:

I'm in kind of the same place, at least in terms of not really having any surprises left at work. There is upward mobility there, but I don't want any more responsibility or longer hours because I don't need the money and the challenge there would be more of dealing with problems caused by dumb people rather than perfecting a skill set. I'm content with what I do in the sense that some days I have a lot of fun on the job, but I don't look forward to heading off to work and seeing what I'm made of the way I used to. The most recent wave of new hires is what has kept me around. Awesome group of misfits from all walks of life.

Meanwhile a close fellating lover (we have a bizarre history) is staying with me, but that should probably come to an end sooner than later. I love seeing him every day but I think the living arrangement is ultimately unhealthy for both of us. I'll probably have to reach out to his mother to get an honest idea of where he's at financially (he works and was supposed to have gotten a large inheritance by now) and talk about whether living alone is something he can pull off. There's that and it turns out my father is in the mid stages of Parkinson's (thankfully therapy for this has come a long way) so I'm hesitant to make any big moves and generally grateful for what I have.

i didn't plan on sharing because i could have written almost the exact same post. everything is stable, everything is boring. next may will be my 7th year at my job, very content with it but i get bored often. i'm bored and feel no motivation/inspiration to do anything and a big part of me doesn't care anymore. that's all i got

I knew the singer was from Vermont because abzu mentioned it a few times. Just assumed the rest of the band was as well I guess.

What I need:
Do more fitness and yoga to be in a much better shape.
Save money to move and buy a house.

What I want:
More mushing training with my dog this season and participate in our first race next season.
Take a 2 week trip to Norway.
More Krav Maga.

Got plenty of other things on my mind but those are probably the main focus points for me.
