I really envy children, they view life and the future with such innocent optimism.
Impatient to be adults, if only they knew the shit and misery that lies ahead.

Preach Professor Willow!

I sort of view it all like being on a bus

Where you start off at the back of the bus and you feel confident that someone is driving the bus

Then as you reach your 20's, you start to question if anyone is really driving the bus. You even find yourself looking down the aisle of the bus. Where you are hoping to see a glimpse of that elusive bus driver. But alas, no driver can be seen. Although you can see another passenger that is further down the aisle than you. Who seems to be giving you a reassuring thumbs up. Which then makes you think that someone is driving the bus after all

Then as you reach your 40's, you finally have a good view of the front of the bus. Only to realise that no one is driving the bus!!! But at the same time, you don't want to alarm the other passengers that are behind you that no one is driving the bus!!! Which is when you find yourself turning around and giving everyone a reassuring thumbs up. While also thinking to yourself, no one is driving the bus!!!!! OMG!!!! No one is driving the (expletive) bus!!! Argh!!!!!!!!!!!!

Or something like that

^ that was great, well done.

Also, who put me on this bus? I swear I never bought a ticket. And where is the bus even going?

^^ I'm guessing that the passengers who have reached their 50's are lying bloodied and irretrievably broken on the tarmac among the tangled remains of the smouldering bus. Hmm, that could explain an awful lot

Those are good questions, Mike. Although I'm guessing you are under 40? In which case, everything is fine up here. Plenty of legroom is what I'm trying to convey! Enjoy the journey!

Consolida! How lovely to hear from you! Is it my imagination or have you gotten more wonderful since the last time we chatted on here? And my answer to that is:



That's also a great analogy about reaching your 50's. Between me and you, I don't know where the time has gone. One minute I was roaring like a lion. With a magnificent mane. Whereas now, I am thankful if I only make 2 trips to the bathroom at night. Although on the plus side, I can still roar like a lion. But that's probably linked to my SA meds.

Talking of which, I need to make one of those trips. Minus the roar hopefully

And its great to see you on the forum again!

How socially isolated I am. I have one friend that I speak to on WhatsApp. But no one to really talk to or bond with. I’m going back to work on Monday, after a three week holiday and am thinking how my lifestyle off a job, which I’m not best suited to and I don’t feel like I bond with most colleagues, and then home where I just eat and go on the internet is not satisfactory enough. The social isolation I suffer from is also partly my fault though I guess.

I have a crush on one security guard at work and she is really nice to me. She is Christian though and shared live prayers to which I checked out but ended up not believing the prayers to which I told her I’m not religious. I’m hoping my honesty didn’t drive her away. I like her but I feel like we can’t really go out because she is noticeably older than me.

In Nigeria a few aunts have a girl that I can marry. At first I was against the idea, but I wonder if I should try to get to know the girl they have for me. They posted her picture on WhatsApp.

I think it’s Nigerian culture to be honest. I am watching a video of a woman where an arranged marriage worked and she talked about how at first he just looked like a regular guy, not cute or anything. That would upset me a bit if someone said that about me. But then it’s honest I guess.

At the airport in Lagos, Nigeria coming back one of the staff asked if I was scared of one airport security guy to which I said no. The question was really unprofessional and not nice at the time. But then, when I think about it, she was just speaking her mind in a maybe curious, childlike way. It’s much better than if I am to get a dirty look or a signal to calm down, like what would be the usual response in the uk.

Doing the weekly food shop this morning.
Last Sunday I was in the supermarket and bumped into my boss. I was extremely embarrassed. He just said hello , I said hi back.
Then I hung around the shop for an extra 20 mins hoping that would give him time to leave , as I didn't want to bump into him again especially at the check out.

The next day at work, saw him and he said ' get your shopping ok?' which I found extremely annoying.
I thought ,yeah I'm quite capable of getting shopping ffs.
Think I gave him a puzzled look and said yep.

Now I'm worried of it happening again.

There would be nothing wrong with speaking to and getting to know this girl, there's as much chance you'll get on with eachother as anyone else (I hope she has a choice whether she ultimately marries you though lol.)

No it's not!

^^ Aww that's very sweet of you Percy but you deserve a lot better

I just wish that I was like every other woman on the planet and had one or two real life female friends of a similar age that I could talk to and share things with. Facebook seems to be awash with women posting endless photos of themselves 'out with the girls'. I must be so unlikeable as a person

With the family pressure to get married. It's actually made me think I need to live more of my truth. I notice I am interested in haircutting and wanna learn makeup as I follow makeup artists on Instagram.

I have quite feminine interests and some masculine. I have never seriously been into sports though. I think I really need to express and get more comfortable with my feminine side to be okay in a relationship, if that makes sense. Most of my relationships, which haven't been that close honestly have been me compromising parts of myself.

I think one thing stopping me from getting in a relationship is that despite knowing which types of women turn me on, I am not certain about which women or men I really like due to not getting close to most people. I am not even certain on my sexual orientation.

Instagram is actually quickly starting to feel old fashioned or something that teens won't join in a few years.

Youtube, Facebook, Instagram are desperate to imitate tiktok to attract young people to their surveillance platforms* but they seem to be going the wrong way about it, just by trying to copy the short form portrait video trend, which seems like a Polynesian cargo cult trying to build an airstrip out of bamboo and expecting the US Airforce to return. Of course the fact that this is also a way to pack in even more ads to people more susceptible to them is a bonus.
The reason young people don't use FB et al is because their parents do.
* I'm not suggesting that tiktok isn't another surveillance platform, of course it is.
