Quaochu Yuan also known as ‘Magnificent Adult Baby’ on Twitter started this rant after taking a “medium dose of acid”. He claimed he wrote 35 pages over the course of 12 hours and still fluctuated between being sober and high.

"A few days ago I took a medium dose of acid and wrote for several hours straight and admitted some things to myself, mostly about money. Let's start here: the last august my mom gave me $100,000 for my birthday. I resented her for this and also suppressed the resentment."

He further added,

“I learned that my feelings about money are intimately tied to my feelings about my parents. I went on to successfully avoid the topic again for several weeks. Then I had to move out of my group house,"

“You've been feeling social pressure to pretend like you have financial health that is entirely about your savings and your income, and it's just not true at all. The truth is that if you run out of money your parents would send you more because they love you."

The rant did not end there.

"The truth is that your finances aren't separate from your parents' finances and they never have been. You resent your mom for sending you $100,000 because she forcefully reminded you of this fact."

"You feel like you were told by society that the way making a living works is that you do labor and are paid a fair wage for your labor and that's how you earn the right to exist and be a member of society. you feel guilty because you've never done this."

"When I explain my current life circumstances to myself in a matter-of-fact way it does not look good. I literally have no job, no gf, no friends (in the sense of people I interact with IRL regularly), no community, no mission, no purpose, no team, no religion."

We’ll spare the rest of the tweets in the thread because it gets super long.
