Go write down on a piece of paper the following :

1 doesn't include suicide, 2 & 3 doesn't include don't know. Keep thinking till you find the answer.
I suppose you wouldn't classify what I am feeling as a classic case of "depression," but at the end of the day, all I feel is emptiness about life in general, and that doesn't really make anyone feel too good.

Anyhow, those are some very tough questions for me because I've pretty much failed in answering them my whole life. Though I am young, I've pondered a long time about what exactly interests me and, I really can't find an answer.

I have some general hobbies like anime, but it's almost a tool for escape... And often times I seem to like shows that often reflect my own personal negative view points or struggles in life (Evangelion, Ergo Proxy, Texhnolyze, etc.).

To answer some of those questions, though, this is the best way I can answer them at the moment...

1. Connection
2. Become a pro tennis player
3. Very unrealistic goals have no means to get there
