Hi guys, I figured I would start a thread for twenty-something members to have a place to hang out, have discussions and exchange notes, since it seems like many members of this forum are much older, and are at a different phase of life, as I imagine many of us are still single, looking to establish ourselves, finding our careers, buying our first house, etc. Feel free to just drop by and share what is going on in your life these days. Also if there are any 18 or 19 year olds, you are welcome to post here as well.

As for myself, I am mid twenties, single and living in an apartment. I am self-employed so I don't think I will be able to be approved for a mortgage for a while, despite making enough income to afford a mortgage. Right now I am mainly focused on finding work life balance so I can pray and read more, as well as do the things I enjoy. Some of you may have seen my 30 day praying for wife and nofap thread. Someone suggested in the future I start at the beginning of the month and give people notice so others can join. Well, with that being said I plan to do another 30 day challenge with livestreamed prayer in the mornings before work for No Nut November. It is funny to type this out loud, but I love November specifically for NNN. I think the energy is great because I always do it with all my friends and you can tell the young men are excited to stick it to the establishment.

Look forward to meeting you guys :)

Considering I grew up in the misery of poverty as an atheist, I've done quite well for myself after leaving my parent's secular nest.

Curious to hear from other members in their 20s!

That's pretty great what you've got going so far, congratulations!

Have restrictions been harsh in your country?

@Jive Turkey, you seem to have gone through quite the transformation yourself. I remember only few days ago you were looking like a Boochi-clad turbo-nihilist who teaches pick-up at the black peoples' mall; now you look like you have the years of wisdom that come with living for a few decades as an aesthetic. What is your secret?

I guess I had a "paradigm shift" ;-)

Compared to the neighboring countries, not harsh at all. There's an annoying indoor mask mandate that all the sheeple follow. Supermarkets enforce it heavily, but on public transit I'm maskless and pretty much never get hassled. Helps that I have a "don't fvck with me" kinda vibe.

Outside it's way more relaxed; masks are simply "recommended" aren't very common. Those masking outside are:
- Numales: 100%
- Boomers: 60%
- Women: 40%
- Based Men: 0%

If you go into the rural areas it's even less common to see them outside. Vaxx mandates were ruled unconstitutional, so I'm not really worried about vaccine death squads knocking on my door anytime soon. Still bought a few machetes just in case, better safe than sorry.

Right now, location matters more than ever. Geomaxx or strap up.

Hey guys, I am in mid twenties and live in the liberal wonderland of the northeast US. Right before the age of twenty four I had a reckoning and saw my own stains and a large amount of the lies that I had told myself when I was younger. I changed overnight, became a more welcoming person, believed my own bullsh*t much less, and became a less reclusive and judgemental person in general. It brought me a revelation that I had based myself on lies, and brought God to my attention; as it didn't seem possible for me to come to these conclusions all by my lonesome, by myself, in my sleep.

I am pursuing my own path in the jewelry industry, and want to start my own business in the near future. Part of the revelation that I experienced was in the midst of realizing the power of art; it's use a tool to see our own impurities and work through them with the lord's grace. I have a great affection of art, and pursue a variety of artistic projects and pursuits.

I have never dated. I live a very modest life currently in a very nice town, in a very cheap pad. All things considered I consider myself blessed.

Looking forward to meeting the rest of you!

Good to hear your stories. As 20s we are inbetween a generation that has a feel of some tradition at least through our grandparents and the lack of internet growing up, and the internet/climate change/transgender/cojona dystopia we live in now. What I am grateful for that I grew up in the 90s was that internet was a peculiarity, as in you had to wait at an internet cafe in the queue when you were abroad to get 30min of it. No social networks either. The amping up of the internet and the demonic agenda behind it with the porn, social networking, online continual news etc has really been of catastrophic impact of the generation just after us.

What I would be interested in is how do you guys see your future in your 30s and up? I find it very hard to plan stuff as things are changing so fast and the restrictions for the non vaxxed and non compliant are getting tighter too. Previously I would've thought long term but now they can drop another hoax to shut everything down, amp up the demonization of the non vaxxed and non compliant and even go to measures where we ought to be worried about not being imprisoned in our 30s and up instead of what we could achieve for ourselves, God and our communities, although this might be what God expects from us, to just go with the flow, live in the truth and abide in the faith to guide us to wherever we need to go, let His will not ours be done, that idea.

A pleasure to meet you.

Truthfully I am uninterested in the future. Let whatever happens, happen. Fear lives in the future, and it is not of God- so I will not follow it. There is but a small patch of soil I am responsible for in this life; I shall tend to it everyday to the best of my abilities. This is not to say that I will drench myself in hedonism, or have no regard for the path ahead- but I find the nose and gut to be more accurate markers than the mind or the eyes. If something smells I will see it, if it disturbs my gut I will know it. I have already paid much for my beliefs. I am willing to go the distance.

I am just not smart enough to project myself with certainty in timespace. I am reasonably sure that most people lack that ability too. But to answer your question as to what may come: I see my own enterprise expanding, possible imprisonment, and if that is the case most likely I will have no companions of either gender, but will be closer to God and Heaven than I am today. All I do now is what I can, so that when such a time comes- as every man must pass on- I will be prepared to lose everything and smile about it.

But that is just my listings. What about your life, friend? Where do you see the ship headed? Are you of the mind to head for safer waters, or weather the storm, like me?

Good to hear buddy. I'm very hardcore in on the truth side of all this stuff. I've stated before that I'd rather go to Auschwitz then take the vaccine. I know that is a strong statement, but that's how I feel about it. Of course, when rubber hits the road let's see how much our words are worth, but I see this as a spiritual test by God. For some reason we came here and we've seen all these truth sources that are out there as a tiny percentage of the global population. I see that as a gift by God. But with this gift also comes a great responsibility. We have no excuse to say we don't see what's going on and what's coming. If you've seen it you can't unsee it. To whom much is given, much is required, that idea...

In the past I would wargame my future all the time. Fun thing is that it would never add up anyway. In fact, the more I planned the least I would do. If I'd write down that in 5 years I wanted to be shredded, that was absolutely a guarantee that I wouldn't start any workout. I work much on impulse, not so much emotion, but what I feel I have to do and know I have to do at that given time. That has always given me great challenge in life as I wasn't prepared for many things that happened, but eventually that pressure created who I am now and having the knowledge I have now. Diamonds and gold become diamond and gold amid pressure. For the future, the last years my world perspective has changed almost every week. Now I'm pretty consistent but especially the last 1.5 years studying cojona/NWO/God all that stuff we talk about here was just a mental trip. Now I just want to live a stable life, knowingly that my own plans and ideas won't add up anyway, just trusting that at the right time I'll do the right initiatives, meet the right people, see the right chances. A lot is required of patience in fact. In the last years this has always worked out exactly as what I needed to have to progress to a new stage in life and especially in the truth.

What I do wanna change personally is to take much more time in silence, the Hesychastic idea, just reflecting on things and building a relationship with God. This is what I've truly been lacking as I've been on the hamster wheel consuming information for 5 years hours and hours every day. Also, I don't think in these circumstances I could have a wife/children, it just would take too much to make that work in a world that's so inverted/evil/difficult as it is now. Imagine having a child growing up, how are you going to shield him/her? Tremendously challenging. Especially as we ourselves will be pariah's in society, for example in the NL from next week almost no public life without the vaxx/test pass (even though there's quite some friction now and people publicly stating they're not complying, like entrepreneurs which is hopeful). But they're gonna go after the children and if the vaxx or multiple vaxxes among masks and other inhumane stuff are going to be warranted which they will for kids starting from their birth, how would I cope with that and protect him/her? Who knows what will happen but I lack the skill and responsibility to do that now, feel like even if that would happen I have a long spiritual journey ahead before I would be ready for that anyways.
