You may be wondering why I've invited you here to read my bio.
Maybe it's because you liked something I said. Or you found me disagreeable, and you're curious if the rest of me matches.
You're probably just bored.
Either way, thanks for stopping by.
And hey, you're pretty alright.

I really look forward to spending a semester at somewhere like Denmark or Sweden. I'm hopeful for it; I want to travel, but I come from a family that dislikes it.
I'm glad to hear you've had such a unique time with it. Late nights are fun, but I always end up missing a regular sleep schedule.
I wish you the best; have a merry Christmas.
No, you're right about that. There's a pattern of indecision and dissatisfaction.
It makes me wonder what it would take to break or escape that pattern.
I've always considered simplicity a virtue. That's what I use to break indecision when I need to.
I'm not sure how much I could contribute (still in University), but speaking from my own experiences with semi-realistic goals and hobbies, I'd encourage you to start planning it out as a small business, just to see how feasable it is.
So you'd need a database for the drivers, a way to test and then add new drivers (since it's starting out, you could do it by hand), a database for the users, a user-side and driver-side app (this would be the expensive part. If you're ever bored, try learning how to make an app (I say as a Computer nerd), but honestly this would be the toughest part of the startup). Etc etc. At least putting it on paper might help organize it in your mind and assess if/when it's viable.
Back to the general questions.
If it helps, you in 3 years will definitely have a different opinion on what you should've done. That's inevitable, and that's okay. What really matters is figuring out clear goals now, so that finding what you should work on becomes much easier.
Live a life full of adventure/travel (if you want to) and worry about being a parent when you get there. Working backwards, being a healthy father would originate from a loving relationship, and the key to that is living a satisfying and fulfilling internal life. Love yourself, and respect/pay attention to others, and that bit will work itself out, I believe.
I wish you the best of luck with the coffee shop! Taking risks and starting ventures is something I've always wished I had the guts to follow through with.
Self sufficiency is an elegant way to live. More and more, I see people subscribe to the idea of "if it's broke, then replace it". I think it's because we increasingly value our time, but sadly see slowing down and learning to fix things as a waste of time.
Sounds a bit hectic, but overall satisfying. I won't put words in your mouth about that though.
I'm glad you're able to live comfortably! That's where I'd like to be in the future.
Also, the schaudenfreude of the market crashing is underrated. Your description beats whatever I'd have to say on the matter, but I was also taking out some time just to watch.
Has a nice sentiment that the keu factor is IRL encouragement, but then the article quickly offrails into their social media advertising.
Still a nice idea, even if poorly presented.
