What do you guys spend your time with?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So, this is probably stupid but hey, it's been bugging me so, I have to ask others.

 

Basically, a co-worker is telling me that my life is meaningless and that there isn't a point to it. To be honest, he is right so, I wonder, how do others spend their time?

What do you guys do in your spare time and, what goals do you have, if any?

Everybody's life is meaningless, its not just you. Spending your time wisely doesn't give your life meaning, find what makes ya happy and tell your coworker to blow it out his ass.

I've told him many times that "yeah, things could be better but, I'm mostly happy with this life" but he can't be stopped.

To call a single life meaningless is to call all lives meaningless. We're here for a reason, even if we don't know why.

I tend to talk to @pinksnowbirdie, play some games that I have, capture VHS tapes and just whatever else comes to mind in my spare time when I'm not out and about or working.

Yes, I'm gay and don't give a shit about pride. My sexuality isn't my personality; my VHS tapes and my video captures are.

Your co-worker sounds like an asshole.  If you do what you like don't pay them any attention.

 

I spend my free time with the wife, woodworking, 3 gun & trap shooting, skiing, and gaming.

 

Hobbies vary by season; wife remains constant.

The only reason for us being here is random chance.


Yup the yup.

 

Socialism is for figs.

Not supporting the political facade known as "Gay Pride."

Would love to know what he does in his spare time that makes him think his life has ultimate meaning 

From what I've gathered, he is juggling two jobs and, he's learning some I.T. stuff on the side. He's also trying to get into being a full-time beekeeper in the future.

 

He's a busy dude and, he's trying to make his future better which I respect but, I wouldn't be happy with a life like that, I don't think.

Been there but, I'd rather be here and enjoy it even if there isn't much to it.

Everyone dies one day. Life is indeed meaningless. I'm counting down the days towards my demise and total oblivion.

"Here is some advice that might have gotten lost somewhere along the way in your life. 

 

#1. Treat others as you would like to be treated.

#2. It's best to keep your mouth shut; and appear to be stupid, rather than open it and remove all doubt.

#3. There is nothing "wrong" with being wrong. Learning from a mistake can be more valuable than not making one in the first place.

 

Follow these simple rules in life, and I promise you, things magically get easier. " - MageTank 31-10-2016

I plan to die with the universe.

 

Whether I'll last that long is an open question 'till I'm dead, and the more I study math and physics the more I realize just how much we have yet to understand. To say that life is meaningless is to claim absolute understanding of existence. Even I wouldn't be so bold, and I'm the one that's gonna die with the universe.

If he wasn’t your colleague, you’d be perfectly right to say sod off. (At least that’s how I got toxic people out of my life) because you’re either a pleasure to be around or you’re just kinda a douche. 

Might be worth mentioning that & no one’s life has meaning. That or mention to a manager that it interferes with workflow & he should cut it out because it’s a bit on nonsense. Idk... I don’t want it to dampen anymore than it has. 

Or ask him to rhetorically figure out what he could do with purpose.

I sleep most of the time.

Sometimes I go karting, but since it can be pricey I usually go to the simulation.

I beatbox or rap if things are getting too boring.

 

I used to talk to my gf during my spare time, but that's a thing in the past. I feel lonely now haha

So now, sometimes I make lots of plans about fixing my car (if there's something wrong).

I love my meaningless existence. 

 

My Fathers was less meaningless since he had to fight in WW2. Only civilians died in my family in that war but many were scared. 

For my Grandfathers it was the first world war and 2 out of every 3 men in my family died. I only exist because my grandfather was on the regimental football team.  

 

My life as been about peace. I missed Vietnam thanks to a grade ii systolic heart murmur and was too old for anything else.

 

My life is not a novel since no conflict has touched it and all my wounds are self inflicted. I am hoping for more meaninglessness since at 65 I am ill equipped for anything else.

I spend most of my time at work, probably about equal with sleep.

 

Next up is general parenting stuff. So far all good as I love all three!

 

I play PC games, golf, cook, eat and drink which are all great.

 

The only thing I do a lot of, about 3 hours a day, is drive. I hate driving and its a waste of life.

 

Only you can give your life meaning, find the things that give the meaning and embrace them.

 

A good golf round, fun playing PC games, parenting and my work do for me. The last two are both very rewarding at the moment.

Sometimes I don't even know. I don't really have end goals.

My life nowadays consists of school and work. But when I am not doing either, I'm busy drawing, video editing (basically just making timelapses of the drawings), programming, working out my existential crisis, modding/cleaning/'refurbishing' consoles/handhelds/controllers/etc. (For fun, not for business) and I am here (too much) as well.

 

I don't really have goals at the moment, other than short term stuff like finishing up some projects, doing good in school, etc.

 

I try to keep my 'dread life' stuff to a minimum, because it is not really benficial to being active, but yeah I also think about what the heck my purpose is here.

 

On YouTube and other online places I have seen an increase of characters like 'Doomer', which may describe my mood at many times. You can see this as horrible, since you don't want to put yourself in a position of self-pity too much, but it's kind of nice to see people going through the same motions as me.

 

Often times when I am in school or watching the news, etc. I just feel like I am not like anyone else, not understood, etc. But I recently had sort of an epiphany with that. The reason I feel that way is because people don't like sharing experiences of dread, sadness, anger, etc.

 

I may have spiraled myself into somewhat of a vortex of sadness, as that is something I mostly notice nowadays, but I can kind of take comfort in knowing I'm not in this alone.

Your co-worker probably feels like their life is meaningless and is trying to convince themselves otherwise by saying that others' lives are, so theirs cannot be.

Sucks to be them.
