"You don't describe yourself as a spoilt child, but you purely do have the earmarks of one. Coast through school, and now are having a life crisis at age 19?
The really old school advise would be to metaphorically give yourself a swift…"
"You could try being a bit more specific in writing down what you did or did not do during the day to accomplish your goal. For example, say you want to learn an instrument, and you set a goal to practice for 20 minutes a day. For me, being able to…"

I keep a journal almost every day. The only problem for me is that I procrastinate through my journal! haha
I'll always be writing stuff I realise and want to do but carrying it out is a different…"

"Hey Liam. That's awesome! I went to Devon a few times when I was younger and loved beaches. Thanks man. I'm hoping the degree will help me out with my music (I'm a music producer) in the long run. Out of interest what are you doing…"

"This is a nice story. My last two relationships have been similar (this includes my current one), and the other one lasted a year and a half. As great as I am sure 'L' is, you have to make decisions based on what is best for you. That…"
Hey folks, quick question here.I'm a Canadian from Ontario finishing up a master's in the UK before returning to the home country for professional school. Things are good and I'm very lucky.Before I left in September I got to know one of the girls at my undergrad uni a bit better. Let's call her L.
