    Default Concerns

    What stage of life are you at right now, and what are your top concerns? The concern could be of personal, political, social, physical, professional, or intellectual nature.

    The near future. I just graduated and I realise I know nothing about life or what I want to do 5 years from now. Makes for an exciting time to live and explore. But it sucks how hard it is to find work.

    In all stage of life, there are always concerns.

    If you stay in your comfort zone, you are not progressing - you are regressing and will be shrivelled and die.

    my concerns? I need to be sure that I won't be financially dependant on my parents or anyone besides myself in any way when I pursue my further studies in animation as a fulltimer, which ideally should begin on September this year when I clear the entrance test.

    I don't want (to have) your concerns, but you're welcome to tell us what they are.

    my concerns? i dont know, im not particularly concerned about anything at all.

    im still alive, i have a job, i can afford a lifestyle i fancied, i have a wonderful family, good friends, and most importantly, I have faith in God.

    So what else would i be concerned with?

    My education and career, the latter of which hinges heavily on the former.

    Halfway through my studies, and still stuck in a limbo for career.... not a very satisfactory pay.

    Career, relationship, house, mental and physical wellbeing.

    Han Solo, when you become a consultant can I come down to Melbourne and train under you?

    I'm similar to you. I worry about career and relationship and occasionally health. Not so much house though.

    By the way, this topic isn't limited to concerns about yourself. If you're concerned about an external factor, that also counts.

    For example, one concern I have right now is the future of China's leadership. There is a power struggle between factions of the Communist Political Bureau right now, and within only about 2 years left until a new set of leaders will takeover the country, there doesn't seem to be a clear heir. I wish more people would unite to identify a good emerging leader. China has been on good reform for 30 years; I'd hate to see it suffer due to some internal struggle.

    Spoken like a person who really know me.

    Mine is more like can I finish this game so that I can catch one or two hour worth of sleep before working again.

    Professionally: I am concerned about developing into a good doctor and maximizing benefits to patients.

    Financially: I am concerned about my loan/mortgage and the fact that it will tied me down. Excited and apprehensive about owning my own place.

    Socially: the eternal relationship

    Others: My parents growing old and living apart from me.
    My decreased level of fitness.

    Have to wait for me to pass and get a job first.

    Have you decide what you wanted to do already?

    Have you considered asking your parents to move to Australia, or at least spend part of the year (e.g. 6 months) there, now that you are having your own place? It will help you to be less worried about them as you will see them more regularly.

    Play less DOTA, get enough sleep and get out for some exercise!

    Most personal, political, social, physical, professional and intellectual matures that I take interest in, don't bother me enough to be considered a true sleep-interrupting concern, but I'd wish for a set of more professional, independent, service-oriented and initiative-driven staff when they occasionally annoy me with stupid things like disappearing from work with very short notice or none at all and paperwork with things left out.

    Currently a university (college) student. Experiencing lots of stress from the workload and worries that I might fail any subjects. I don't really like my course that much. Tend to hang around at Spcnet and read wuxia to escape the stress. Might be spending too much time escaping reality and this is probably also another concern.

    1. How my two and a half year old son will react when the in-laws leave in 2 weeks (given that he can't leave my mother in-law for more than a couple of hours).

    2. Should we buy a house in a really nice area, and become super leveraged in this economy (well... not super leveraged... just carry a mortgage total 5x my pretax income...)

    You may want to consider changing your field then. University will be a pretty awful experience if you don't enjoy what you're learning.

    Not that many concerns right now, though I do have a lot of work to do, and keep getting more.
    Because I'm somewhere in between,
