Are there periods of your life that you look back on and think "what was I thinking"?

#1

like, how was attracted to that person, how did I have an interest in that, did I really post on drowned in sound?

There’s a risk here that we could plumb some and depths so let’s do just that (no let’s not).


#2

Yes.


#3

the HIM years, mainly


#4

all of it


#5

I should’ve remembered the spoon.


#6

Sure.


#7

vast


#8

fuck sake everyone, rise above the sort of thing I’d post, don’t aim for it


#9

#10

course


#11

Yeah. About a month ago I turned down about £50K voluntary severance, and like a chump I carried on working here instead.


#12

Nah everyone I have fancied has been awesome and a personal credit to myself


#13

80% of the previous 32 years.


#14

My heart has just sunk for you but good on you for turning down a big lump of money and fuelling the property for the better of society.


#15

Yes. I call it the ‘centre-parting years’.


#16

Yes. I go in cycles with this stuff, seems to happen every few years. Then I think I’ve sorted myself out and things are good, and then a few years later come back to another ‘What was I thinking?’ moment.


#17

yes this is an ongoing state for me i just call it life


#18

Life, oh life, oh life, oh life,
Doo, doot doot dooo.


#19

It’s my life, set me free
So you bed, so you lie
What you see is what you get
Listen to people and sort things out
Things I do I do them no more
Things I say I say them no more
Changes come once in life
Stop bugging me, stop bothering me
Stop bugging me, stop fussing me
Stop fighting me, stop yelling me
Stop telling me, stop seeing me, it’s my life

It’s my life (it’s my life, my worries)
It’s my life (it’s my life, my problems)
It’s my life (it’s my life, my worries)
It’s my life (it’s my life, my problems)

It’s my life (it’s my life)
It’s my life (it’s my life)
It’s my life (oh, oh, oh)
It’s my life

It’s my life (stop bugging me, stop bothering me)
It’s my life (stop fussing me, stop yelling at me)
It’s my life (it’s my life)
It’s my life (it’s my life)
