6 years ago on this day I was working in a meat factory for $20.50 an hour starting at 4am. Every day I would wake up early, get to work and watch the clock and calculate the money in my head. 90 minutes prior to close I'd hose down and clean all the machines, and come home soaking wet smelling like meat. At the time I felt very resentful because I had gone to uni for 4 years, which cost me 40k. Yet here I was underutilised, working in a low paying job, with most of my colleagues barely able to speak English. These days I have a much better job and earn double the amount, but I still feel miserable. 6 years ago if I was in my current position I would feel happy. However, now I still feel underutilised...



Mate depression sucks. Remember to reach out here if you need to vent or talk to anyone.

Also from this point of view, be it from a distance, you've undergone a pretty remarkable shift in your life from back then to now. You should be proud of the changes you've made and what lies in front of you.

Sorry to hear about your situation. It can be difficult but this is the time where you succeed or fail where you put all your effort to pass this hurdle.  :ibsquatting: sticking point in life.

What are your goals sports wise as well as life wise. When you work without life goals it can be difficult e.g. if I was running and I knew where I had to stop it would be easier than running without knowing where you have to stop than you think I am running aimlessly and there is no end so you stop there and then.

Make goals > change life around it > go for it

Thanks brother!

We had our first game of the season and won convincingly 60-16.



I scored a couple of tries and got named as one of the "stand out performances of Round 1".



Unfortunately with about 10 minutes to go of the game my left Achilles Tendon played up again so I'm going to be out for a couple of weeks while I let it rest  :(

I'm number 4.

My team won 24-0 against the Roosters on the weekend  ;D

I have been treating my achilles conservatively so haven't been training. I will commence training again next week.

I caught up with a friend for dinner tonight. He's a couple of years younger than me and he started hanging out with me and my circle of friends when we were 15. At the time he was an innocent kid from a good family who never drank, smoked or touched drugs. I've never done drugs either (excluding alcohol as a drug). Unfortunately I feel like we led him astray because soon after he started hanging out with us, he started doing all of those things. Tonight I saw him and he was on meth and proudly telling me about selling drugs and who he was going to bash over unpaid ticks (drug debts)  :( 

The sad thing is about 4 years ago I lent him money  as he had sold all of his possessions to get drugs. At the time I lectured him about making better decisions and avoiding drugs, which he promised me he would. 12 months ago he came to me begging for help because people were after him. I told him I would not give him money but I would stand by him as I knew the people who he owed money to and I resolved the situation without anybody getting physically hurt. Once again I lectured him about the dangers of the drug industry and how he has an opportunity with his life to turn it around...it obviously fell on deaf ears.

As a drunk it sounds hypocritical but I wish he would get his shit together. I'm not the kind of person to walk away from long time friends but when people refuse to change it makes friendships difficult. As a realist his situation does not look good. Apart from me and 1 or 2 childhood friends all of his friends / acquaintances are career criminals and junkies. His family abandoned him 4 years ago and he currently lives in a squalor share house with 4 others who also have drug habits. With the quantities that he is now dealing with I'm certain that it will only be a matter of time before he is in for a long prison stint...the irony is that he cannot even see that he is a junkie and has a serious problem as he views himself as a dealer  :uhhhfacepalm:
