I just spent the last few hours cleaning the apartment while drinking beers and listening to music. The wife started her morning with yoga followed by lunch/drinks with her old coworkers, so I took advantage of the four (4) beers in the fridge and wetjetted this poo poo like a pro.

It was one of the better afternoons I've had in awhile (cuz of the beer).

I go to work every day. I code every day. It's mentally exhausting. I have all these ideas kicking around in my head that I want to implement and put out there, but I just don't have the energy. I am 31 years old and I am trapped. Kids are around the corner. They will trap me further. While they'll make me supremely happy in other dimensions, the Age of Brian is over. I am drinking gatorade to combat dehydration.

I'm a little worried about when the wife comes home and finds me super tipsy/drunk. I hope the fact that the apartment is spotless will compensate.

I can't stand work. We supposedly live in a democratic society, but our day to day lives are ultimately authoritarian. Corporations are extremely hierarchical and I've done a good job of climbing the ladder, but I can't stand what I've done/become. God I hate sending emails across lines of business just to make my name known. Ugh. We live in a farce. I wish I made more money so I can check out earlier.

I watched Escape from New York and LA recently. I'm a little disappointed in John Carpenter for blowing his load on escape from LA. NY was a low budget (6m) film that did modestly well (25m). LA was big budget (50m) and flopped (25m). If they just stayed modest we'd have seen a lot more from Snake Plissken. Bah. Ditto but for Dredd. Ditto but for Riddick. I escape into dystopian sci fi a lot.

I was having a fantastic run on Friday. I was over two miles in at a sub 6:30 pace and my left calf started hurting like a mother fucker. One step it was fine. The next it wasn't. gently caress. It's still painful. It's getting better but it'll take time. My body is not what it used to be.

My life of quiet desperation doesn't have an ending in sight.

Aight goons. Let's commiserate. I'm off to pick up more beers and some quarters for the wash.

So you're 35, fat, jobless, and living with your parents. I'm living exactly into society's expectations and effectively trapping myself into continuation of that existence. At least you're like gently caress that, I'm gonna do whatever the gently caress I want. In some ways I'm envious.

if you take age to mean time as a function of brain plasticity/learning ability, as opposed to chronological age which is pretty arbitrary, you're middle-aged at around 20, op

Yeah part of it is definitely a lack of neuroplasticity, but another major factor is no longer being unattached (i.e. responsibility).
