    Basic stuff, mostly (health and career). I've been learning to DJ recently, but tbh it's not as fun as I thought it'd be. You can't enjoy a party whilst DJing, and it's difficult to even enjoy your own set. I want to produce but I can't afford a new laptop atm which is holding me back, and that takes us back to the new job thing.

    What do you DJ? If youíve got friends in the crowd itís fun as shit, and even if you donít you can just enjoy the tunes. And if you make music, playing your shit and watching it go down well with the crowd is akin to a prostate orgasm

    Drum and bass usually, but just because that's what most of my friends prefer. I just prefer being in the crowd not having to worry about what to play next, how to mix it and whether people are enjoying it. I'm sure it'll get easier, though. I want to become a don with techno, dubstep and grime over this year.

    Producing and DJíing go hand in hand obviously, you should def try your hand at the former and you donít need a god computer for that either

    Tbf, getting a copy of Ableton or whatever + 1 synth will cost the same as a laptop decent enough to run it, so you might as well double your get-stuck-in price. It mustve cost a bit for the DJ stuff too though no?

    I've got Ableton and there are decent synths on the market for not much. The DJ stuff is my mate's, but they'll be at mine for the foreseeable future. When he moves and wants them back I'll make a decision whether to get my own. If I had a decent laptop I could just get a controller, though, but that'd be a bit of a backwards step.

    I have achieved my goals for now and am genuinely happy as I am. No more kids, just raising the ones I have. Starting a new job the day after tomorrow. We will see where we go from here. It's quite relaxing to have no plans.

    I'm gonna book that trip to New York before I decide to chicken out. I'd like to travel just a bit before my passport expires. Oh, and should probably make some effort into finding someone to settle down with. Other than that, I've nailed life.

    My aim for 2019 is to just grow up, essentially.

    After faffing around after uni I got a temp job in an office on £10/hour, and living at home rent free I managed to save up £5,000 in 9 months.

    Moved to Edinburgh and after another 9 months I'd come back home with my tail between my legs, slightly deranged, quite fat and £5k savings had turned into £3.5k of credit card debt, lol.

    It's two and a half years since I moved back and I'm still on pretty much exactly £-3,500, despite living at home rent free on a solid wage the whole time. I've had a pretty fun time, and made genuine progress in a lot of areas - best shape i've been in since I was a teenager, gained more confidence with the opposite sex, and have a great network of mates. Don't think I have any genuinely impressive skills but I'm fucking quality at making and maintaining friendships. But I'm drinking (and the other stuff) too much, stuck in the same shit town and the same dead-end job. It was alright when I was 23 and it was like a post-university bonus level, but I'm fucking 27 and l'm a bit bored of it.

    Also, whilst I sort of play up to being a bit of a div on here, I'm like...not an idiot. I was always the smart kid at primary school and basically smashed GCSEs, A-Levels and my degree without doing any fucking work (i imagine a lot on here are like that). I took pride in pissing it and lolled at losers getting their boring jobs and boring lives and trying, and this year I finally realised it's me that's the cunt and not them. I err, basically want to stop that stuff.

    To be more specific I have a basic plan to keep my head down and be really fucking boring all year. Mostly knock drinking and drugs and all the other impulsive shit on the head, eat healthily, exercise, pay off my debts and save up some money. Then late 2019/early 2020 transfer within my current shit job to somewhere with more stuff going on and then find a "proper" job.

    Think I'm ready for a serious relationship as well, but I'd take an increase in casual sex.

    Correction, £5k I had, £3.5k that I didn't. I don't even know how I managed it, I didn't even do drugs. The shit excuse I'm going with is that before my dad took me back to my mum's house every weekend as a kid he'd give me like £20 and literally say "don't spend it sensibly".

    You're chasing shags and then moaning when they don't lead anywhere like a teenage girl / gay man. Either you're desperate to find 'the one' like your body clock is wired to explode or you're just a massive preening tease that wants to masquerade every shag as a potential relationship.

    Settle the fuck down.

    Nah, I'm not chasing shags. I'm looking to meet people for meaningful relationships, I've just taken crap sex when it's been available as a consolation.

    I don't think the consistent fuck up is bottling it though, it's getting some vague interest from a woman then getting massively carried away. Italian girl for example was fucking 18 years old, it was ridiculous but she was alright looking and I was flattered. I mean you've got a point in that I've probably over-analysed my way out of a few shags but I've definitely not bottled on anything even remotely approaching a proper relationship.

    Aye but that's just because my life is so boring that as soon as a 5/10 girl matches with me on tinder I decide I'm in love for about a day and come on here to tell everyone.

    I want to get better at everything. Better at living, better at working, better at cricket, better at telling other people how to play cricket, better at accumulating money and spending it on things from which I benefit, better at talking to people, better at being healthy, better at not being afraid of things, better at dealing with the llama in the basement, better at coming up with relatable euphemisms.

    Better at golf, too, but I like to stick to realistic aims and goals.
