    Lightbulb SLIs, what's your 5 year plan?

    Or 5 day? And less importantly, how do you feel when someone asks you that?

    I don't plan that far into the future, lol. I would never end up following through, because circumstances change. More so, though, I change. That and the more complex a schedule I am expected to conform to, the greater the likelihood I will break it just to be free of it, regardless of the implications at times. I might feel surprised if someone asked me that

    I just have a general idea of what I want to do with my life and that can happen any time between now and death. The details will handle themselves

    5-year plan? You should ask this guy about that:



    On a serious note, I just plan to finish my studies during the next 5 years (in less actuall, but nvm). For everything else I'll just see what's happening.

    Much as I like this post, it's hard to share this sort of thing. Generally I'd like to be stronger and more knowledgeable in my areas of interest, and have more creative works under my belt.

    144000 people in heaven each 5yrs. God is Ni-polr. God plans things. You have to wait 5yrs to go to heaven, to get resurrected. This way, there is a constant influx of new people.

    Anyway, dumb question, dumb answer.

    You sure you're not related to korpsey, ESC?

    You both have almost the same preference for music.

    I will say that this is true. I had forgotten that what is fated to happen months or years from now will not change because of what you do tomorrow.

    I want to say that I would call it the logical end of nihilism rather than anti-nihilism, but I have no substantiation for such a bold claim.

    Parkster must be Ne-polr. He didn't think about SLIs who are going to die in 4yrs from now.

    Related like Esau and Jacob? I hope not.

    Yeah I know he has a similar musical knowledge/preference. I don't know what that means though.

    Nihilists in present day tend to assume the fatalistic interpretations of the concept of nihilism, that's why I call it anti-nihilism(I think these people aren't really invested in the subject). What I referred to as anti-nihilism is probably closer to Nietzsche's existentialist interpretation, with some optimism added to it.

    It means you're both going to kiss and make up pretty soon.

    Why don't you ask an EII what our 5 year plan is? I don't have short term plans but I have long term ones. There's only a thread for EII and 5 DAY plan How the heck should I know what I'm going to do in the next 5 days except I'm scheduled to work every day...so work? That could change though.

    5 years? That's way too far away. Think back to where you were 5 years ago.... Could you have guessed you would be where you are now?

    For me, I see no change on the horizon...uh oh.

    Dead people can have plans too, and yes, they won't ever come true. Ni polr it is.

    Eh. Seems like a common trait among us SLIs. Biggest downside - skepticism.
