Life is quite literally wasting time until you die
Its a sad reality.
When we are kids we are led to believe that the world is this amazing fun place, and that when we grow up its gonna be great. That we will be able to do what we want, have fun all the time and that our feelings matter.
Then we grow up.
We learn that our feelings mean less than jack sh*t in the real world. That, yes, there are fun things to do, but they are fleeting, and that the majority of our time is spent 'on the clock' under somebody elses rules, most often doing something we really don't enjoy just to earn the money to keep a roof over our heads.
And so, in our free time, we look for our little distractions, some people watch sports, others go hiking, clubbing, etc.
In the long run, how we choose to waste our time should make us happy. Very few other things will.
