The toggles and elastic came in mail now just waiting on the micropore tape. With each arrival I get more of a sinking feeling lol! Because the doom gets closer haha! I’m trying to make light of the sad situation.

Do you think you will go right away, or just something to have on hand?

I want to go pretty soon. As soon as I make the exit bag and kind of wrap up some stuff. Don’t want to leave a mess. I already don’t have much stuff for this reason. So there’s less work for anybody to do once I’m gone.

When I was 25yrs, I have my plan to suicide when my age around 40yrs. Plan was to save money for next 10years which I'll turn 35. And then stop working no more, and start spending my saved up money for traveling, do whatever, for a few years or until I run out of money. Then I will schedule my own death. My age will probably less than 40yrs at that time. That was my dream but not anymore tho.

Now, I want to speed up my suicide. I'm so tired of working and living boring life, I want to die a lot sooner .

whether I do it now or when I turn 50, I'm pretty sure it'll be the way to go for me. I'd rather get fucked before I die of a heart attack, aneurysm, or any other unsavory things.

I truly, sincerely hope I don't live that long. The mere thought that I might makes me feel quite unpleasant, to put it extremely lightly. I'm a hermit free from the grueling drudgery of wage slavery, so at least I've got that going for me, I guess. Escape plan would be a better way to describe it in my case.

Of course one has to assume that retirement will even be an option going forward. Remember that the modern form of retirement (wage slavery then slow rot) has only been around since about the 18th century when there were far fewer people and there was still plenty of room for economic growth to provide resources for both those working and not working.

Yeah, agree with you.
There is this beautiful quote by my favourite philosopher, Emil Cioran:

"You know, I’ve written very little, I never assumed it as a profession. I’m not a writer. I write these little books, that’s nothing at all, it’s not an oeuvre. I haven’t done anything in my life. I only practiced a trade for a year, I was a high-school teacher in Romania. But since, I’ve never practiced a trade. I lived just like that, like a sort of student and such. And that, I consider the greatest success of my life. My life hasn’t been a failure because I succeeded in doing nothing."

He also wrote a lot about suicide.

Suicide is my retirement plan as well. I live with a chronic physical disability in addition to bipolar disorder. I'm 22 years old and am in college because it's the expected course of action for someone my age. Since starting college in 2014 my mental health condition has begun to deteriorate and I don't see myself being able to hold on to a job for long. Also, I'm not interested in becoming a slave wage for forty years: I know my body can't handle it. Because I don't have to work at the moment or for the foreseeable future I'm only engaging in activities that cause pleasure, such as reading.

However, for the long run I will have to end it. At most I'll make it to 40. Unless something changes dramatically between now and then I will have no choice but to off myself. This is my retirement plan.

Yes, this is absolutely my plan.

A series of various personal disasters and limited choice meant that I wasn't even remotely financially stable until recently, far too late to begin saving. Most of my income has gone to others. In any case, on the off chance that I would make it until retirement age (which I am sure will rise from sixty-five), exactly what good am I to anyone at that point? I'm hardly worth it as it stands now. The idea of puttering around, alone, watching my pennies so I can afford dented cans of cat food, is not a future in which I would invest.

I know other people have a future with a spouse and children, plans for trips, or a desire to write a memoir, but I do not have any of these things.

The bit in Blade Runner, in which Deckard "retires" the replicants, that is my idea: I get retired. I'll just have to do it myself.

Blade Runner is one of my favorite movies. My ultimate favorite is actually the sequel, Blade Runner 2049. I saw it in 3D. Fantastic!

Great quote. Brought a smile to my face. I love me some Cioran, as well.
