Ahoy there, brothers of America. I'm Kaustubh, a seventeen year-old currently starting my final year in high school. I came across this site a week ago, when looking for style tips for somebody my age. Little did I know what sort of journey I was beginning. Within a week, I have now read every even slightly relevant article posted here in the past two years.

I started this year having resolved to improve myself in every way, and I shall strive to do so. My problems lie not academically - I am a competent student - but physically and morally, as I am grossly overweight (90 kilos at a height of 5'8) and circumstances have made a cynic out of me. These two things are what I want to change, as I aspire to become, above all, a better human being.

I'm currently working towards gaining admission in one of my country's best law colleges - there is a five year law course which you can pursue at the undergraduate level called the BA.LLB - and losing 15 kilos this year. 

My hobbies include quizzing, debating, and essay writing. I enjoy a game of tennis (either lawn or table) every now and then, and I love to swim. I'm an avid reader as well.

I hope this community can serve to guide me and mentor me, and provide the manly touch which my life is currently lacking.

I can't wait to get to know all of you.

Well welcome to the forums friend!  I hope you find a good bit of wisdom amongst the blog.  I always suggest this to young people, but have you looked over the Heading Out On Your Own series?  I've been going over it a few times in the areas I lack and it's helped me immensely. It's a good read for someone who is about to enter schooling, and it serves as a guide to taking steps towards responsibility and self reliance while leaving you with time for some fun here and there.

When it comes to your weight it's mostly 80% diet 20% exercise. Do you have access to any workout equipment?  How are your eating habits?

Thanks a lot. I'm already finding the wisdom, this place is unbelievable.

I did take a look at that series, and was amazed. It's just perfect, there's no other way to put it.

I exercise mostly on my own, using the Power 90 Fat Burning video. And I've really started controlling my diet now. I'm trying the intermittent fasting technique, fasting around 14 hours daily. Hope to see results.

Depression (And Suicide)

This is something we all face in this life.  We get lonely.  We are disappointed.  We fail.  Sometimes others fail us.  What do you do when you are  truly depressed?  What if it goes on a long time?  Ever considered suicide?  It happens all the time.
