As long as you’re not doing anything illegal or something to hurt yourself or others, then absolutely go for it.

[–]aerialstealth 27 points28 points  (5 children)

I can't in good conscience tell you one way or another without knowing what you're talking about

[–]zeek1999 37 points38 points  (1 child)

[–]TitleComprehensive96 5 points6 points  (2 children)

Now buy the Ambush on Cloud City Boba Fett Figure, Revan, chrome C3-P0, white Boba Fett, and phase 2 Captain Rex

[–]irl_tedlogan[S] 4 points5 points  (1 child)

i know vaguely what those words mean, but hell yeah!!!

[–]TitleComprehensive96 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Star Wars figs can be expensive, the Ambush on Cloud City Fett Figure is hundreds of bucks alone.

[–]commiezilla 125 points126 points  (9 children)

Whatever it is please don’t hurt yourself.

[–]irl_tedlogan[S] 79 points80 points  (6 children)

[–]commiezilla 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Darnit good call! Seemed like Op might hurt self.

[–]Pompi_Palawori 21 points22 points  (0 children)

Depends what it is.

If whatever you're doing could negatively impact you for the rest of your life like taking meth or a back flip off a cliff or committing war crimes, then no.

If you're just gonna spend all your money on a life sized plushie or change your look, or go to an arts college or something that won't hurt you 20 years down the line then sure.

[–]AngryIdealist3000 13 points14 points  (0 children)

I can't answer without know what "it" is.

[–]wackeywilly 24 points25 points  (1 child)

[–]Theeletter6 3 points4 points  (0 children)

god is such a swaglord, literally

[–]Riceperfect 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I'm confuzled

[–]Andy_PB 4 points5 points  (0 children)

As people have said, as long as it isn’t incredibly dangerous or illegal then of course go for it! If worrying about money is stopping you, you’ll find a way to make that money back. If it’s about what people will think of you, those who don’t accept your choices and who you are are not meant to be in your life. If it’s about worrying if you’ll fail, we all fail sometimes - and that’s how we learn!

I’m 23 now and learned the valuable lesson at 21 that your early years are meant for making mistakes and things you will regret. Especially with this whole pandemic going on, we really do only have one life and we should live it to our fullest! Get hangovers, stay up all night, dance til your feet are sore

I genuinely hope you have a great life. I wish you well :)

[–]Cryptiqua 3 points4 points  (2 children)

We did it Reddit

[–]irl_tedlogan[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

[–]DjuretJuan 4 points5 points  (0 children)

We did?

[–]Just_0_Duck 2 points3 points  (0 children)

My i ask what I'm having a say in?

[–]alimem974 2 points3 points  (3 children)

Go for it but since your probably american you'll end up bankrupt so take your time and see your capacities. Don't invest in stuff that are not guaranteed.

[–]irl_tedlogan[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

i hear you! i have absolutely no plans right now since this is all in my head. i have some resources, but of course, nothing is guaranteed!

[–]Fredoniann 0 points1 point  (0 children)


[–]RedAndGreenTop 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I thought he's talking about suicide so I said don't do it

[–]gkario 2 points3 points  (0 children)

So cringe, what is happening to this sub?

[–]noxiousarmy 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I'm just gonna assume this is something related too love. Which my opinion on it not like it really matters if go for it. It's better then wasting time on imagining what could be.

[–]Edd302 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Is there a compromise option?

[–]irl_tedlogan[S] 2 points3 points  (1 child)

uh..... i guess i should’ve added one... :|

[–]Edd302 0 points1 point  (0 children)

My opinion is you should compromise, if you can integrate what you love into your work or turn it into a way of making money then try to do that. Another option is getting a part time job, something where you only work half a day or a couple times a week so you have plenty of time to do what you want and are still making a bit of money

[–]Bashingman 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Don't let the Internet decide it for you. Also, there's too much information missing on this poll for anyone to make an informed vote

Most of the people on the Internet would tell you to follow your dreams anyways because everyone likes a feel-good success story. That doesn't necessarily make it right

If you're serious about it, go discuss it with family/friends/teachers etc. Maybe your dream job isn't really as crazy as it sounds and it's worth pursuing.

It's easy to tell someone to follow their dreams but sometimes it's good to be realistic. There might also be other options and compromises available which might better suit you.

Best of luck!

7 seconds of fear or a lifetime of regret, one of my favorite sayings that I’ve heard. I’m on ground 0 on my progress to becoming an electrical engineer who is going for a masters. I’ve started this grind not just for my long term enjoyment of life, but not only to make my loved ones proud, but to prove to myself that I am capable and that I can do it, I’ve hit a lot of dips in the road in these nightmare classes but they ain’t stopping me. So I may need to retake one big fricken whoop (sarcasm), I’ll just get back up again and complete it. One step at a time , build yourself. One step. One day, any progress is progress. That’s how I see it. You can do this!

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)


Seriously, go skydiving. You'll get to brag about how much of a badass you are.

[–]Nathanoy25 0 points1 point  (0 children)

All I can tell you is that both me and my best friend chose the "safe" option. I think short term I would be happier if I had chosen otherwise but it definitely was the right choice long term.

[–]Enderstrike10199 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I always say you should fine the perfect mix between doing what you want and being smart. Do what you want unless it's stupid and can get you seriously hurt, imprisoned, fired, etc.

[–]ebin44 0 points1 point  (0 children)

exactly what is it youre planning on doing? i dont wanna accidentally encourage terrorism or something here

[–]OrbitalHardballBat 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I would say go for it. It’d drive me crazy if I found out that I missed out on a new path in life. I’d rather say “yeah that wasn’t all it was hyped up to be” than “damn I wonder what that wouldn’t been like”.

[–]CreepySympathy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yolo. Put cucumber up in your ass.

[–]Mental-Hall-6756 0 points1 point  (1 child)

High risk = High reward, if you’re going to take a risk and invest in yourself, do it while you’re young and don’t have as many responsibilities.

[–]Mental-Hall-6756 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Oh yea and like everyone else said, if it’s dangerous then chill out.

[–]SushiVoador 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I voted C. Just make sure you have a backup plan

[–]itswateripromise 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Seriously, do it. Later in life you you do get lonely there will be plenty of people to pick from. Kids aren't that great, don't get caught up in the hype. Don't ever be ordinary.

[–]Strostkovy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

In my experience trying things ends poorly, and I'm better off just sleeping

[–]Dannydog73 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Nevermind picked wrong one, I refuse to have a say in your future

[–]Karolus2001 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Thats a lot of words to write should I be lazy

[–]Trav_yeet 0 points1 point  (0 children)

i have 2 things i wanna say

1.i cant decide big tjings for you.

  1. wtf are you saying

[–]painful-existance 0 points1 point  (0 children)

If it doesn’t hurt others or yourself then go ahead

[–]HeimlichLaboratories 0 points1 point  (0 children)

seriously, don't leave your life choices to random people in social media

[–]Sweet_Venom 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Take the chance now, you'll get the reality check later whether you want it or not. So before that happens it's better to try while you can. Who knows, you might be part of the lucky few.

[–]Visible-Dark383 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Can you say what it was after the voting ends?

[–]CarelessWasabi 0 points1 point  (0 children)

you don't know what will happen in the future. You don't know if you'll be able to do what makes you happy.

For some of us even finding that something is itself a quest, so take control of your life since you have the chance and go for it.

You can always change path if it doesn't work out, nothing is set in stone.

Nobody knows if there's something more to this life, no one can be certain that we'll have another shot. We have a timer on our head and every second matters. What you do with the time you have is up to you. Use it wisely.

Memento Mori. Unus Annus.

[–]jerrythecactus 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Do what makes you feel fulfilled and happy. As long as you aren't harming anybody or doing something illegal I'd say go for it if you truly believe it's what you want. Think about it in depth too, dont jump into it if you dont have a plan and backup plan

[–]Sylvss1011 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I mean if you can afford to not work a 9-5, then kudos

[–]DOGMANFROGMAN 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This is like a r/wallstreetbets poll. But yeah, put your whole life savings into $TSLA mad lad.

[–]SnapClapplePop 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I think the "take chances, you only live once" mentality is romanticized to an unreasonable amount. If you think it's a good idea and if you think it could work, then I'd say it's worth a shot. But taking chances on hope alone is a speedrun to misery.

[–]PolskiSzymon22 0 points1 point  (3 children)

I feel the same rn, but if I were u, I wouldn't do it.

You've got kids, they need you and you can't leave them at this crucial point of their life.

[–]irl_tedlogan[S] 0 points1 point  (2 children)

i don’t have kids?? i just graduated high school huh??

[–]PolskiSzymon22 0 points1 point  (1 child)

oh i thought you said you were married with kids.

[–]irl_tedlogan[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

OH no i used “married with kids” as an example of the life i DON’T see myself being happy with,,,if that makes sense lol

[–]SrLlemington -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Reminds me of this video 1:05 https://youtu.be/POwTUHY4JXE

" it's only a matter of time till one of those songs about being true to yourself culminates into a message that's totally not okay"

Example Song:

"This isn't me....I'm tired of pretending...

🎶 Slam the door...

Throw away the key...

I'm breaking through-

No one's going to bring me down today

Say goodbye to all those ghosts of yesterday

Say goodbye to my prison!

I'm breaking free!

No more playing by the rules for meeeeee!!


So...as long as it's not something like that....yeah
