    I had that problem.

    When life is just about money, and then you get money, you realize life isn't just about money... it can be a bit of a confusing time for a while, until you figure shit out.

    Go back work and realise a 9 - 5 is equally as boring, then leave you 9 - 5 and find something interesting to do.

    No I am passionate about living my life as I want, when I want and doing things I want, without some cunt thinking they have ownership over me and can tell me what I can do, and when I can do it.

    Oh and because my time has a value, and no 9 - 5 is going to pay me the value of my time.

    That's why you made that money, for hobbies, use it.

    I'm pretty sure the total prize money of the Dota 2 international this year was over $10m or something like that.

    If you're any good, why not consider entering some local tourneys. You might do well.

    I did not mean spending money as in consumption. There are other ways to spend: travel, education, self improvement, investments. You could travel around the world and play games in South Africa, Russia, Madagaskar, China. Might be a great inspiration to see other cultures and see how much more happy people are who make less than a Dollar per day.

    If you come to South Africa, you won't see that lol. If people make money here, they make at least enough to live on. I know of some beggars who drive Audi TT's, true story.

    But yeah the happy thing I agree with. If you aren't scared of dying, go spend a day in a township on a weekend. It's a simpler, mostly happier life.

    I don't get people who are bored like that. I mean, you literally can do anything you want. That is lack of imagination/apathy, not boredom.

    Learn a language, travel, get a wife/kids, volunteer in your town, get drunk and bang teens, do whatever you want..you have broken free from slavery only to stand outside the prison twiddling your thumbs. Do something.

    Or give me your money so I can invest it in starting my IM :)
    $3k a month is my dream goal right now lol.
