    I abandoned my ebay account recently.
     
    I had several returns I didnt respond to. Ebay permanently restricted my account. I can no longer sell on ebay. I called them and they gave me the runaround.
     
    And you know what? I feel like a giant weight has been lifted off my sholders.
     
    Thank you ebay. This is (and I mean it) the single best gift I could've ever asked for.
     
    I can just focus on school, because now that's all i've got.

    Something very strange happened over the summer regarding my medications. 
     
    I take both Adderal for my ADHD and Zoloft for depression, and over the summer I managed to drop both of those. 
     
    I visited our Univertiites healh center and I have a perscription for Zoloft. Looks like I am going back on pills again. I have taken Zoloft before, and it did help me immensely.
     
    But here's the weird thing. Why is it that I didn't need these medications all during summer? What was it that was so different about my external enviornmnet that warranted me not needing to be on costly drugs again? 
     
    I think it's because summer felt like literally a gigantic party to me. I was making money, paying my bills (I rented an apartment and bought food, toiletries, ect), and saving 50% of my income (my bills were VERY minimal, I was spending 1K a month on everything). Yet I could also afford to go out to meetups around Michigan and network, and I met people worth in the 7-9 figures and asked them all sorts of questions. I even got a job offer at a battery startup because of the electric bike I built this summer as a technician. I was Running around to scrapyards and making new discoveries every day, and my income and network continued to grow. I felt like I was actually in full control of my life, and that what I did had a direct positive affect on tomorrow, vs being in college where life just seems to mundane in comparison.
     
    I feel like I had found a one-in-a-million job. One where every day is something different AND you are paid well. There are only a few people I know that have these kinds of jobs, and they generally work in highly creative fields. I'm not talking about working a high paid job then doing a bunch of things outside of class, i'm talking about doing a high paid job for a living that you love the vast majority of (not ALL of, all jobs have their shitty times), and you would happily do for free if there weren't bills to pay.
     
    All that came crashing down when I came to SIU. 
     
    I thought I could just bring the business with me, turns out I can't. I need to live near a city for this business to work. Out here, there just aren't nearly as many people (and thus ewaste) so in comparison to being back home, the juice isn't worth the squeeze. 
     
    Imagine if you got paid to party and travel, then you have to go back to school? You probably wouldn't be so thrilled. We'll that is the position I am currently in. 
     
    I have a friend back home who works at a resturant then blows all his money on EDMs every weekend and smokes weed, and he's the happiest guy I know. This is not what I would do with my life, but it's his not mine. Now imagine if you got PAID to go to EDMs and smoke weed, And let's imagine that the weed only had positive side effects? You probably wouldn't be so thrilled at leaving that behind?
     
    My experience at Rockwell taught me another valuble lesson: I can't work in a big company. Maybe once I "settle down" or something, but there's all sorts of things I want to do. I'm young, I don't want to squander this time in an office, doing meaningless work. I want to get out there and do awesome stuff that is so distracing that I won't even have time to think about being depressed. I have yet to find a job which connects all the same dots like the one I had during the summer.
     
    I long to get back to something, anything, that makes me that excited to wake up at 6am every single day, but I haven't found it yet. School and it's subjects are never gonna do that for me. There are also very slim chances a standard job will ever do that for me. Maybe all I need is more excitement in my life? SIU is a huge party school after all. But parties don't produce anything of value. Building cool projects and talking to people who are vastly more successful than you will ever be at least has a potential to ROI.
     
    I am focusing on my health right now. I am trying to consistently get 8hrs of sleep a night and eat better. It has been helping, a little. I still have yet to experience any life-changing events like I did summer of 2019.
