I'm a pessimist. The current system is royally fucked and will run itself into the ground. Time to head away from the coast, buy a gun, and learn to grow your own whatever the hell will grow in the chaotic weather of the future.
I'm not unhappy - my current job is a reasonably well paid waste of time. Me and most of my friends chase empty, meaningless shit from bland overseas holidays, to getting laid, to cars which within 5 years will be too expensive to run.
Bring it on - it's exciting in a fight club kind of way.
