This. At bottom, what we talk about when it comes to "is x thing that isn't a piece of clothing or a cosmetic /fa/" is self-improvement, and the foundational question of all philosophy: what is a better self? ("What is the Good," "the teaching of the good life," "how should a person be?") It's just the human question usually dressed in Raf Simons Rick Owens.

Chances are you have some ideas, however muddled their reception, already. Work them out; live them out; "live the question."

Two reheated morsels from the 19th century:

Henry James advised to "try to become one of the people on whom nothing is lost," but of interest to this board he died a virgin and/or was a homosexual deeply, pathetically closeted beyond even the standards of his time.

In justifying a certain aspect of his ethics, John Stuart Mill came up with a deliriously simple sieve for ranking the quality of pleasures. Which would someone exposed to both choose? Or, updated and adapted a bit, who is trying to ape whom? Is the person wearing Rick trying to wear AllSaints? Is the guy at the gym trying to be he guy at home shitposting? And – real question here – who is the guy at the gym trying to be? A great a functional athlete, Chris Sharma, Roger Federer, or Michael Phelps? Or a great bodybuilder, Charles Atlas or Arnold Schwarzenegger? Or is he really trying to be a sexual athlete, a physique substituting for whatever gets people into bed with Jack Nicholson or Henry Kissinger or Count Mippipopolous? Or is he still doing it to be attractive, but just looking for true, intimate, loneliness-ending love? Or is he just looking out for his health so he grows old? Or does it all come together in one chase of interlocking ideals?

Introspect on that bench, man.

The thing is, I signed up when I was interested, but some of the classes took a turn for the boring, and I'm sitting here with my final assignments for the semester struggling to find the motivation to get that shit started. I don't know if it'll get better over the next 4 years, but all I want to do right now is abuse substances and get my sleeping pattern back on track. I don't know how I'm going to enjoy life without money, and I'm one of those people who's been told all their life that I have to go to university and I have to get a job with excellent pay and I can't throw it all away if I don't feel enthused because I have "so much potential".

I'm feeling pretty suffocated, and shopping for and looking at clothes is becoming one of the only things that helps me breathe.

>> No.6282153

Mm, might find the time to think after exams. I've traveled before, but with the wrong group of people and found it extremely stressful. Recently I visited a friend in college where we partied almost every day and I had a fling with a cute girl - it took me a couple days after coming home to get over how much I was going to miss that place.

That may be what I want to do, but it's just too expensive...

Thanks for listening though, dude. I really appreciate it.

"Create yourself," consciously, with joy and concern. Push yourself to be better; you probably have an intuitive understanding of what "better" is already. But while you're doing so, reflect more on what exactly you mean by "better." Explicate it; dig in and make your goals and motivations plain to yourself, to more closely track your actions to the sort of life that'll truly have you not wanting to post pictures of suicidal penguins on 4chan.

Look inside yourself and figure out what appealed to you about Media and Law in the first place. Work on that.

If you really have a lot of potential, doesn't that mean you're cut out for more than making a lot of money as a media lawyer? I mean, they're definitely useful people to have around, but I don't think too many of them are exceptional examples of what humanity is capable of.

Re: money and happiness:

>β€œLet us toast to animal pleasures, to escapism, to rain on the roof and instant coffee, to unemployment insurance and library cards, to absinthe and good-hearted landlords, to music and warm bodies and contraceptives... and to the "good life", whatever it is and wherever it happens to be.”

Hunter S. Thompson, who is not exactly the nutso chill icon of stoned masculinity a million dorm room posters make him out to be.

Re: happiness, forget it. The term's been so abused as to do more harm than good in most deployments, and what it should be referring to is a byproduct of events and situations, not something that even can coherently be made a goal. You feel happy when you feel loved, when you're doing meaningful work, when you're making tangible progress on a dream or maybe staking out uncertain hope in one, any time it feels like the world is vibrating at the same frequency as your soul.

You need cash to get stuff done. That's a certainty under capitalism. But never forget the cash is just a means to a means, a flow to call out and draw on, not something that's of any real interest.

Thanks. I'm trying to learn the guitar. Not sure if there are any places near where I could hike. I suppose I would like to travel but obvious concerns come up, but I guess that's the point.

Go cycling out into the country/around the city
Go for a walk around a nice area and admire the buildings (sorry if you live in plebsville)
Go to art galleries and develop your own viewpoints on the arts
Go window shopping
Go to the library and find something that interests you/pushes your mind and read it in a park
Arrange volunteer work/work experience
Improve your life drawing
Have light-hearted conservation with strangers
Get to know the city you live in, get a map and try to walk every one of its roads (apart from pleb areas)
Find new music online
Look up events(festivals/openings/gigs/clubnights) near you
Get the train to a near by city you've never been to and have a nose around.
Go hike in the mountains
Form detailed opinions on what you believe in (politics/society) and cross examine yourself
Learn a new instrument.
Watch/read the news. Economist is good but expensive for the volume. Stay up to date with whats going on around the world.

If you're having trouble with computer dependancy, try limited it until after a certain time. When i'm free of study/research i normally choose 7/8pm.

Sheeeeit dis nigga here got me feeling all feelosophicle

It was Casanova who said "I know that I have lived because I have felt," so go out and feel things. Do what makes you happy, and if you don't know what that is, take a moment and reflect on what you're doing right now. I find that I derive the most pleasure from the simplest things; a literal ray of sunshine, a well set mood in a room, a refreshing breeze, etc. As the old adage goes, stop and smell the roses.

But I don't suppose that really tells you what to do other than the 4chans. So, as many others have said, read a book nigguh. I would recommend checking out /lit/ they have sticky with a recommended reading list. Personally, I'm reading Lolita right now, and it is effay as fuck.

I would also say become a student of history. In my experience, the illusion that we call depth comes from an interconnectedness we have with concepts larger than ourselves.

I'm in the same boat as OP. I read the thread. Some good suggestions. I might go finish learning a piano piece I'm halfway though.
But my problem is motivation. I feel like I'm sick of everything; no energy to do anything.
I have a stack of interesting books, but I struggle to read. I read lines and lines over again. It's really infuriating. I think I might have a problem, but it only happens with fiction books.
