studied sociology and econpsy, now working as a journalist writing about finance mostly. not the most exciting subject, but the pay is good. employer announced that every full time employee gets 1000 yuros on top this month, free of any tax (thanks Bundesfinanzministerium). feels good. Sometimes I sleep with an ex.

About the gifted part: I remember in elementary school, we had something called a dictation, teacher reads a text and you had to write it down, and I always handed mine in before he was even done reciting for the second time, without flaws. those were good times.

Some are and some aren't. It's mostly a meme, I'd say 70% of the people that describe themselves with this label were only considered gifted because of grade inflation and continuously diminishing standards. At the same time I'd say that the public school environment isn't exactly conducive to amounting to anything great so there is still the remaining 30% that I'd say is genuinely gifted but fucked up their chances due to unfortunate conjunction of circumstances. I am 99% convinced that I can safely count myself among those 30%. I'd even say that the majority of great literary figures fall into that category

That’s only a subset of them. Tinder addicted zoomers are also included. Coomers are simply cumbrain dopamine addicts who think that the entire purpose of life is getting sex and thus let themselves be controlled by their lower level desires with no regard for anything higher. The guy I called a coomer was so deep in cumbrain retardation that he threw out all common professional etiquette (and common sense, really. Anyone could deduce that fucking a student would have consequences if found out), because some dude who obviously thought he was a POS lead him on with ‘yeah man, no one cares, DO IT’.

Travel. If you make 6 figures, don't spend a fucking dime. Dump the bitch. Travel. See the world. A single man making 6 figures can easily save and spend later. When I was in the Army, I'd travel during my leave rather than go home. Did an archaeological dig in Israel, Greece, and Egypt. Threw a dart on a map of Africa, Middle East, Asia, and Europe. ended up in fucking Moldova.

Anyway, I'm rambling. Go travel. See the beauty of humanity and learn other peoples and cultures. Enjoy their food(I'm a burger, food is #1), their lifestyle. You will learn to appreciate what you have, you will accept your role on this Earth, and to no end you should pursue it and live life.

Was a good concept but I couldn't get the finish how I wanted it.

Second one was about people hallucinating from the tap water and shit in the air and even in the gas mask canisters when they became needed. Conspiracy type book but not what you'd expect in the end. Actually sold a decent number of copies.

When traveling abroad in the continental style,
It's my belief one must attempt to be discreet,
And subsequently bear in mind your transient position
Allows you a perspective that's unique
And though you'll find your itinerary a blessing and a curse,
Your wanderlust won't let you settle down
And you'll wonder how you ever fathomed that you'd be content
To stay within the city limits of a small midwestern town
Most vagabonds I knowed don't ever want to find the culprit
That remains the object of their long relentless quest
The obsession's in the chasing and not the apprehending
The pursuit, you see, and never the arrest
Without fear of contradiction, bon voyage is always hollered
In conjunction with a handkerchief from shore,
By a girl who drives a Rambler and furthermore is overly concerned
That she won't see him anymore
Planes and trains and boats and buses characteristically
Evoke a common attitude of blue
Unless you have a suitcase and a ticket and a passport
And the cargo that they're carrying is you
A foreign affair, juxtaposed with a stateside
And domestically approved romantic fancy,
Is mysteriously attractive due to circumstances,
Knowing it will only be parlayed into a memory
Go out there and live your life, don't stick around in the city in one place.
