I'd say start running, but having seen that you'd have to prop up anywhere, and money would be drained unless you were back to staying in one place, that you can't do that. It would become drifting and than you'd be back to where you started.

Maybe I meant running from a bench to a garbage can. I need something adrenaline pumped, and am getting anxious due to covid living. Sure, you can do anything you've always done, to a degree, except shop and work, but the batch of things you've already done is stalling the plight for new adventure because you're back to where you've always been.

ok not running than, they should invent a running app on that new virtual boy with laser roads and things that trip you out on the side, like a moon than a bite being taken than a cat's smile than his teeth becoming pilons and someone is rollerblading. end of run. that would be weird and lame.

i got nothing today. i'm in my 30's and now feel old not having any good advice for myself...this covid is taming everyone and we got our lives to live

Let it be. Everything always works out. Just focus on things that you can control. Desire the best, work hard and deliver the best, but then let it be.

PS. Eat less processed food. And have protein shakes. ;)

Get the hell out of your job as it'll suck the life out of you. Do the same thing but do it elsewhere it's 70 % less work for the same pay.

Buy Amazon, don't bet on oil in 2020, and here's a copy of the 2019 Grays Sports Almanac (the 2020 one will be useless).

Date as many girls and pick the one you wanna spend time time with. Don’t delay it.

Save money as much as and have extra income.

Buy/rental properties and travel.

Take culinary/learn to cook.

Do what you really want to do NOW because when you get older you may not be physically able to (my situation).

You will be 30 one day and 50+ the next. It happens in a heartbeat. I don't know where the last 20 years went.

Buy a King not Queen size mattress, otherwise when you have kids they'll kick you all night long.

Buy real estate as soon as you can, rent less even if you need to stay at home with family or live with roommates. Don't buy the newest shiny thing until later in life - cars, phones, TVs, etc. Also get a degree; I couldn't have my job now because I don't have one and my company now requires it for middle management.

Wow... are you me???

The first one especially... I ended up accomplishing the other points fairly early on, but the most important one still eludes me, lol... That would be my Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure moment...

Another piece of advice for my 30 year old self, would be to not focus too much on the salary of a job, but to also consider long term factors, like job growth/potential/environment...
