I Want to Do Something Crazy

"I Want to Do Something Insanely Crazy and Stupid!"

This question is from a Group Therapy post in our TrèsSugar Community. Add your advice in the comments!

Life is way too short, I've been realizing that lately. I'm so sick of the typical boring lifestyle. College college college. Work work work. Never any spontaneity! I've been having the urge to do something that I know is stupid, but I just don't care. I need something to throw the balance off in my boring, stressful life. I've brainstormed ideas with my boyfriend about eloping, running away, couple tattoos or even moving to a new country and starting a whole new life. He, obviously, is the voice of reason and destroys all ideas. But, I know we are young, I'm not saying we should do it now (18-19 yrs old) just sometime in the future so I have something to look forward to. I don't want to waste even more of my youth. Life, like I said, is incredibly short. I can't stand the thought of looking back dissatisfied. Help/opinions?

Postmodernsleaze had great ideas! And I agree...don't get married or tattoos right now. Because once you're married the spontaneous things have to be put aside because then your developing a household together and paying bills together and responsibilities come before anything fun at that have to think about the other person before yourself, his needs, his issues...and please don't mess up and have a kid at this point because responsibilities become more prevelant and more taxing. Marriage is not the answer....but if you want to go to a different country, or plan an unplanned road it...Lately I've had the urge to just start at the east coast and drive across country.all the way to the west coast....stopping at odd and end places, getting my picture made with those crazy monuments like the worlds biggest donut and stuff like that.....if something like that is too expensive find something local to do like sky-diving or something that you would normally never do. Good luck!

You're 18 and thinking life is short and that you're wasting your youth? Did you just lose someone in your family? Or are you just impatient to get through training for adulthood to being an adult? I felt that way, couldn't wait to be grown, and then, when I got there, wondered how I'd missed learning to play. Started relearning how to play in my 30's. I think, maybe, that's what you need, is just a little more play time. :) Hit a nude beach, or do one of those hge photo shoots where thousands turn up naked....something that requires a lack of inhibitions. (I'm a huge fan of getting naked! Nothing quite so freeing as skin :)

You're both 18-19?  Don't elope yet and don't get couples tattoos!  Take a spontaneous road trip together.  Romantic and fun.  Don't plan it all out like a regular vacation.  Just pick somewhere and start driving.  Decide a place to stay and what to do when you get there.  Don't have a time frame.  You get there when you get there and you leave when you leave.   Living young and wild and free is a lot of fun, but you can be spontaneous and adventurous without being straight up stupid.  And if your boyfriend is too tame to do anything silly and spontaneous, grab your most adventurous girlfriend and do something crazy with her.

Something stupid? I'm thinking face tattoo. Preferably with a misspelled word on it.

Btw, I've been working since I was 16 and going to school full time and still make time for work outs. But I try to fit fun in and balance it out. Anyone can do it.

At your age I went to Hawaii at 18 then again at 19 and San Diego gaslamp when I was 20. Las Vegas when I was 21. At 22 I went skydiving and ran a mud run 5k, now I'm 23 and went to both Vegas and SD in the same month. Am going sky diving again, and have another mud run in a few weeks. My point is... You don't have to do something so drastic to make life fun. You can do it in spurts. And believe my I partied my ass off in Hollywood and Los Angeles (where I live) ever weekend in between and do not regret anything. Now I just want to relax. You're right, life is short, but make the best of it everyday.

Its normal for your age. It usually occur in teenage fun stuffs (sex, party, drinking and ...) Just try putting yourself under control, you don't need to disorganize your life just you're trying something crazy. You might as well, start with Europe trip, backpacking and other reasonable ones.

I was feeling the same way a couple of years ago. All I did was study and work, and study some more and work some more. I had almost no social life and no time to myself. I ended up going to Fiji for three and a half weeks with my partner. Best. Idea. Ever. It was so good to not only slop about on the stunning beaches, but to take in a different culture. The best part was when my partner and I took in a culinary tour of Lautoka, we bought everything fresh from the markets and cooked it up with the chef in the hotel and had a massive feast for dinner. Most of the food we had never tried before but it was amazing. We also tried Kava, Lovo cooked food and sang and danced with the locals. Travelling somewhere a bit off the beaten track is my suggestion. In Australia everyone goes to Bali, but noone goes to Fiji, and if they do they NEVER stay in a tiny beachside bungalow (they prefer to stay at the Hilton). Go do something like that, something fun and different and have the time of your life. :)

First of all this is normal. This happens at this age.Why don't you move to another country for a few days? You can do party with your friends , family and so on . I think the decision is yours that how you will live your life. I always think that my life is boring . I am from a conservative family so it is seen most of the time that my desires end up in dreams they never come out from my dream . But after reading your post i am feeling good that there's at least one like my situation right now . Live your life . Just add life to your days. :)

In today's world, the most radical, counter-cultural thing you can do is follow Jesus. Watch the comments here and you will see that claiming truth and working to follow His Ten Commandments will put you at enmity with the current main stream.
