I'm lazy, I hate work, I hate responsibility, and I FUCKING HATE authority. I can't keep a job for more than a couple of weeks because I hate the fact that I HAVE to be there from x to y time, I HAVE to do and say things according to x rules, and I may be disciplined if I don't. I hate getting up in the morning. I love to be alone and to sit around pondering. I have no work ethic at all. I despise work. For these reasons I'm suicidal almost every day because I just can't cope with reality. I hate it.

I shall repeat that you need to speak to someone in a professional field regarding this.

You definitely need professional help.  That and don't take any non-prescription meds.  Most people hate the things you hate ... you just have more of it.  Definitely beach combing is in your future.  Can you surf or play beach volleyball?  You could meet dumb blonds that way.

Getting professional help for depression is like a drug addict going to rehab. It works rarely. These people can't change the core of who you are, which is where your tendencies and behavior stem from. They can make temporary differences at best, but the good results will undoubtedly fade and I'll be back to my old self again.

Not a god damn thing. Every single thing I've ever set out to do has failed. And naturally, as someone who gets overly excited about potentially big things that are about to happen, I hype everyone up about it, only for it to be a false alarm every single time. Everyone expects false alarms from me now after crying wolf hundreds of times. I'm just horse shit. Nothing more.

I guess you could say that my pull-no-punches, no bullshit, objective views of myself are a rejection of the notion of deluding myself. I do not comfort myself with lies about myself. I give myself absolutely no leeway, and no compliment whatsoever. I don't want to live lies. I don't want people telling me that I'm x good thing or have x talent when I clearly don't. Unfortunately, a strict adherence to the truth reveals that I am indeed ignorant, unattractive, undesirable, and a failure.

Mindset, mate. Mindset.

Facing 'the truth' without leaping into denial takes guts. There you go. One positive attribute off the bat.
Continuing on despite what you considere an undesireable 'reality' takes bravery and power of will.
And I appreciate no-bullshit attitudes in general.

Just do me a favor. Don't jumble delusion and hope into one mess. They may seem similar at times, but one is hard to hold onto yet worthwhile, the other is easy to aqcuire but holds you back.

If it's trolling, it's not neffective, as it doesn't piss me off. Pissing off people is what makes trolling a art, right?

You're not really in a position to accurately analyze your situation.  The only way to feel better after spinning your wheels for 10 years is to make change.  Or not, up to you.  I can say if you make no effort you'll stay exactly the same.
Please don't take anything I say seriously.

I thought the same thing at first, but maybe it's just a person who is really depressed and also an atheist.

Intelligence is not the primary factor in success. Not even close. And success is not necessarily a marker of intelligence.

Now I'm 26, which is too old to even try for this goal anymore,
As Ann Landers would say....and in 4 years you'll be 30. So in four years you could be a graduate or still not. I have been told my IQ is 135....I don't think so....and many here would agree with me.

Have you ever tried acting? A real character actor can benefit from a less than ideal appearance. Maybe you could give some depth of understanding to an unconventional personality...

Jesus man, 26 is VERY young. You've been a legal adult for only 8 years.Get some perspective. You have your whole life ahead of you.

At 16, I was mowing army base grass at minimum wage.  On weekends I pumped gas at less than minimum wage.  At 18, I got myself into college and wasted all that money because political activism was a LOT more interesting.  But it got me a real job and I eventually went back to college and got my degree.  Not because it gained me anything at my job but because I WANTED IT!

I won't even bother to insult you.
