    I get up in the morning b/c if I didn't then I couldn't pay the bills for my house and would end up moving back in with my parents. Not a happy thought mind you. :D Hopefully one day I'll have a better job so I can live more comfortably than I do now. Don't have to have wads of cash like most people, but to be able to afford above average things without scraping to save for 6 months would be nice. :D

    because I am contracted to for the next 5 years, 6 months, and 26 days... ;)

    Other than that... because so much happens before noon than I ever knew before I joined the Navy, and because I tend to be in a better mood when I only sleep 4-6 hours...

    And to play with Linux... :eek:

    Because I have no choice or alternative, not get up, miss all lectures, get kicked out of uni, have to live with parents again *shudders*

    I also really enjoy life, most of the time :)

    why do *I* get up?

    because if I dont, how can I wonder whether there is truly a god, whether the matrix is just another in a long line of messages from god saying "this isnt real, but I'm watching you nonetheless". Because I know I am alive, but have no proof that any of you are, perhaps I died thirty trillion years ago when my head was chryogenically frozen and this is just a mind stimulating illusion by my caretakers (ala Vanilla sky). Because if I'm the only truly consious person alive, it would be a waste to waste it. Because without life there is nothing, without nothing there is life. Nothing is the creation of life, so death is the creation not the destruction, so why create without experience? Because if there is a god, I must do what I must to apease him/her/it. Because it is what must be done, for if it is not done, what is done is not worth being done for it is nothing.

    I hope that cleared things up for you :thumb:

    We just studied that in my philosophy course. Unfortunatly I missed a bunch of the lectures because i have not yet found a satisfying reason to get up in the morning.

    If I didn't get up in the morning I'd be sent back to the doctor and have to take happy pills (again :rolleyes: ).

    I'd also have well meaning people want me to talk about my problems and all that ****.

    If I get out of bed and look even vaguely awake everyone is happy.

    I feel like a robot these days, same **** day in day out :(

    At least i get to avoid rambling on about god and philosophy though, my creator seems to have designed me around a very straightforward piece of code:

    Code:
    /*********************
    *                    *
    * MrDT's LIFE        *
    * by: MrDT's creator *
    * 17/11/03           *
    *                    *
    *********************/
    while (i_am_alive)
    {
    	if ((time >= 6am)&&(time <= 2pm))
    	//sleep between 6am and 2pm
    	{
    	sleep()
    	}
    	else
    	{
    		while (missing_a_load_of_lectures)
    		//as soon as lectures finish break while-loop
    		{
    			watch_daytime_tv()
    			play_on_pc()
    		}
    		if (workday)
    		{
    			go_to_work()
    			//ensure that i am at least 5 mins late
    		}
    		else
    		{
    			get_stupidly_drunk()
    			make_prat_of_myself()
    		}
    	}
    }
    go_to_hell()
    

    // lol, how sad am i! :worried:

    i have no idea why i bother going on with life, i suppose it's more because there's no reason not to than anything else.

    I get up in the mornings because I've either
    a) Got lectures (weekdays) or going to work (w/es)
    or b) Slept at my bird's and she gets up at 6:30.


    As for goals in life. Well, firstly, finish my degree, and make my girlfriend happy.
    Longer term; similar to [DE]FreD_S really. I'd like a wife whom I love and who loves me back, and children. At least two. Don't aspire to be rich, although it would be nice of course. Just enough so that I'm 'comfortable', so I don't have to worry about where the money's coming from for the next bill.

    I'm a simple folk.

    Even sleep gets boring.

    I get up to go to work to satisfy my financial needs, that in turn support the main premise of my existance. It's a biggie.

    "To have a good time"

    That's it. It doesn't get any better (or easier) than that. It might be riding motorcycles, or eating, or fiddling with 'puters, or painting my house. So long as I enjoy doing it, it's officially approved.
