Student: moving to Stockholm to study some manner of engineering this year. Love versatile professions.
Job: Work at a magazine and run my own company that sells socks. I make a lot of money off of it for someone my age, might quit engineering mid-studying to run the company full time, but I'd want to move to the US in that case to lower the tax burden. You can't become rich-rich by working for a salary, only well off. In any case, I make enough money to pay off rent and buy clothes. I don't buy any pieces that cost more than 150 bucks unless it's a suit.

its very competitive but if you have the talent for music and have a high turnaround (sometimes contracts are given to you with a single day to complete 30-45 second songs that need to be perfect for the advertiser) you'll be golden. movies are obviously different - can span from no creative freedom to complete control and usually you have months to complete a project. i haven't done any work for TV yet, but i'm in the process of pitching music (of my own alias) to publishers.

its been said so much but the industry is really who you know and is hard to break into. i got lucky and met some people who enjoyed my work and it just branched off from there.

I just do things that are low effort and high payout. I doubt I will ever hold down a real job. I don't care about the prospect of prison that much because I generally steer away from drugs.
My first bigger payout was $40k when I was 19, from a poker tournament. I don't have the nerve to do that for a living, and probably couldn't. I applaud people who can.
It wasn't sudden though, I played dozens of tournaments with 50-100 bucks buyins without winning a dime.

Selling stolen goods is fairly lucrative, if you can hook up with foreigners that just want to offload stuff quickly.
I think one of the lowest risk, biggest reward schemes out there is match fixing. I don't mean the big league stuff, I mean local college level games and 2-3rd division sports.

It doesn't take much effort and persuasion of young players to perform certain actions on the field, but there's a generous payout if they follow through and you bet on these actions on various sites
(I'm paying a chinese person to coach me on bet layering on skype atm, there are all sorts of algorithms on these sites that try to detect whether you're truly a casual player or involved in the match results).

I don't generally view myself as a bad person, I just don't feel like working for money in the traditional sense is worth it. Now I can make about 150k+ a year without physically harming anybody. I think it's worth it.

But I also don't want to pick up a disciple and stick to it. I don't want my identity to be a fence, counterfeiter, fixer or dealer. I don't want a pseudoidentity like that. I just want to exist and then die off some day. I don't want a profession or identity.

Age: 18
Student: dropped out of physics bachelor this year
Job: no job, no idea what to do with my life and i dont think its worth it having a job making 5 euros/hour.

I have some sort of anxiety for doing things like getting a new job or getting a drivers license or basically anxiety to start doing things that will ultimately have a positive influence on my life, because im scared to be in a vulnerable position and have always regretted stuff i did impulsively. My school class was full of insecure and tasteless children who all wanted to fit in and bully anyone who was different, so basically i drilled myself to say nothing and show no emotion when i wanted to react to something out of fear of saying some stupid thing i could get bullied for. This caused me to become very shy and silent and only people who know me for a long time really know the true me. This has also caused me to never be able to start a relationship with a girl, because i basically need to know her for a couple years before i can start behaving normally around her. Fortunately im good looking and my friends and girls who know me well dont understand how i dont have more game. So yeah life is kinda shitty right now although its getting better, but the behaviour you were drilled to have in your childhood is hard to get out of you.

Thinking about starting philosophy bachelor next year, but not sure i also get really fascinated by crazy people and think it would be amazing to talk with them so thats more like psychology right? well idk i know i am attention whoring

you're well on your way. i'd say just keep the people you work with as close contacts, and always try and keep up a working/casual relationship with them.

also try hitting up post-production houses, advertising agencies, search up local films and find out who directed them and get in with them, find local musicians and go to gigs and drop a business card and meet people.

depending on your specialty, get a demo reel going on like vimeo or some shit.

print good business cards (moo is lit), and also maintain an aesthetic/brand for yourself. either hire a designer or learn it yourself, and become a brand/identity rather than a random kid trying to write songs.

nah it's national ads, not local. very different. sometimes they license songs from artists and other times theres a demo budget for original compositions (which is where i come in)

>>10907979
How the fuck does this even work? I don't understand. I have no idea what I want to do at college but getting anything other than a STEM or law degree seems like you couldn't get a job afterwards. People tell you to do whatever you want and encourage you saying that anything is possible, but that's not the case when doing an arts degree gets you a job at Mcdonalds after 3 years of work.
I saw a job that was recruiting a student out of college and paid 45k starting, all it required as a bachelor of science minimum because it was lab work.

Why do you think that exactly?

There's not a finite age limit to the vast majority of things. The bigger mistake is to do nothing, to stay mediocre for your entire life. Don't do it!

It's sales bruh you ask them some questions and then make up some BS about cushion and support if they're old or if they're young you point them to a more expensive shoe and talk up how popular and cool that model is even when it's hideous. Really diabolical stuff.

Should I even bother studying for the LSATs and killing myself over applying to good law schools, or should I just slit my wrists and be a good boy who probably ends up studying for MCATs anyway and hating himself for choosing a non passionate career path?

focus more on composition than anything with that path of study; audio engineering pays literally nothing and is an awful industry, but if you can WRITE and produce you become a whole new level of employable. you wouldnt believe the 'audio engineers' i know who don't make or understand music.

Sorry for the delay on this.

You should study and apply but carefully. If not a T14 or T1 + full ride, don't go. Don't ever go to medical school - or law school - out of obligation, both are currently bad investments for 99.9% of people. That said, you should see what pathways are available to you.

Intersections between law and medicine: pharmaceutical antitrust (not fun), pharmaceutical patent (fun), mass tort (maybe fun), some aspects of criminal law (very fun). There are a LOT of well-paid MD/JDs out there for those categories, esp. in the mass tort world. Your Neuro degree would also get you into general patent prosecution/litigation work, probably somewhere nice. All of these jobs would be just as intense as research, though, so there is no "easy" path.

tl;dr: You sound like a smart dude. Stop worrying and just dip your toes in both pools. The LSAT isn't something you study for, it's more like training for a marathon, so it won't be much of an investment. Take a STRICTLY TIMED(!) practice test a day for a month, take the test, see how you do. If it's anywhere between 170-180, you could probably slide into a good law school cheaply. Appease your parents and also take the MCAT. Then, results in hand, evaluate your options. The medical world 'aint great either - my ex was in med school for neuro and it wrecked her, part of the reason she's my ex.

>Craft beer sales

I do outside sales for a well-known craft brewery. Salary is 55,000 plus 10,000 bonus. I get really good perks as well which include:

-company car (all costs including gas are paid by company)
-Company credit card w/ large expense account for travel and entertainment
-free beer

Basically I oversee a few distributors during the day to make sure sales are growing, and also set up and execute promotional events for the brand. The job is a lot of work, but it's really fun and I get to talk about and drink great beer everyday. I also get to meet a lot of new people and do something different everyday. I also just work out of a home office and can pretty much wear whatever I want to work everyday. I really couldn't be happier.

It's funny, I never really see anyone else in this line of work in job threads.
