>just now starting to get my life back together
>striving for University as soon as possible
Now I am hit with huge regret that I didn't do this sooner. I wasted 6 years of my life being a faggot who only played video games.
for what it's worth i did the same thing, went to uni as a mature student, did better than all the normalfags because their lives have gone so perfectly that they can't understand self-direction or self-determination, and now my life is pretty sweet
if you stick to it, don't let yourself be beaten down by discouragement (i came close), and don't get complacent along the way because of minor successes, you will be very surprised how much better you are than normies for whom it all came easily.
no one cares that you're old, btw. pretty much no one cares about anything. as i started getting more socially adroit i started experimenting with exposing my pure autism to normies, and getting horrible reactions from them. i did it, i got my horrible reactions, and the next day they'd basically just forget. it blew me away that a normie wasn't like "WOW, NOW I KNOW YOU'RE A WEIRD FUCKING VIRGIN WHO PLAYS VIDYA ALL DAY AND HAS NO FRIENDS LOL." they just didn't give a shit. no one cares. it's sort of like walking to work and seeing someone with an overgrown lawn. you don't REMEMBER THAT LAWN FOREVER, you go "damn that lawn is overgrown" for 2.1 seconds if you notice it at all.
in a weird way I think I owe it to all the sex they're having
chad doesn't give a shit when I say some stupid cringe shit or act like an autist around him, he's going to go home and bust nuts in genetically superior pussy and forget all about it
thanks normies, my actions have no consequence
>Being excited about entering the slaveforce
this is such a promising thread
I'm almost 20 and feel like absolute shit to know that most of my old schoolmates are halfway through their second years and I've just been NEET this whole time
I wanna go back to school but
But I'm glad I took 3 years off, became a degenerate druggie, anxiety and shyness went away, became extremely witty and lots of other shit. I wonder how I'd do in school now that I've learned all these new things, back in high school I was autistic as fuck and quiet all the time.
they're just very dumb and unreflective
but then i have a grand unified theory of normies not being technically sentient so don't listen to me
in my vocation it has been a boon rather than a difficulty because it makes everyone assume i was really reflective and mature and chose to go into my field, which differentiates me a bit from the ten billion fresh-faced 20 year olds who can't take anything seriously and think they're going to live forever so they don't work very hard at things
but i can also tell you that just about every normie i know has some weird thing:
>one is getting her third degree because she kept getting useless degrees
>one is finishing a phd he doesn't care about, finishing it really late and slowly too, no idea what to do next, in debt
>one is going back to "get his MA" in some field that will be just as useless as the BA he got which left him semi-jobless for 2-3 years
>one keeps taking "hiatuses" on welfare
>they all take 2x as long to finish degrees, to do normal coursework. don't think i've ever met a person in a "4 year degree" that isn't taking their 6th year because they're too fucking stupid to do anything right.
these are all normie as fuck normies with friends and wives and sometimes children.
normies are awful. don't feel inadequate next to them. you cannot even fathom how much our society has gone off any rails it once had. it's a fucking eye-opener when you finally get to "normal guy" status and get a job and start to associate with them organically, and you realise EVERY ONE OF THEM is a mid-thirties manchild who has never made a good decision in their life.
the men who made Robot Chicken are basically the mainstream of western society right now. a bunch of manchildren who talk about cartoons all day and pretend to care about Issues on twitter. that is what has replaced the dwindling remnants of the baby boomer version which preceded it, which had "did u see the sports game last nite" instead.
Investment is like gambling if you are trying to make a living off of it. The only way to make money continuously is to have insider information.
He means go to trade school or start community college.
Trade if you just want a job. Degree if you actually have a plan that ABSOLUTELY requires a degree (professional career).
Not the guy you're replying to but I'm in the area too. Going to UC Davis.
Not too late OP. 26 here, wage slaved for years to get experience and worked all through school. Will have my bachelors this year. You'll be ok but WORK through school in a job semi relevant to your career path to gain experience. Even if it's only 6 or 20 hours a week it can only help you.
If you're 24 the age gap isn't huge so dating won't be a big deal. I knew a 29 year old guy who was dating a freshman, nobody gave a shit.
>How do you work?
I worked part time while living with my parents while going to CC. When I transferred I quit my job and got a lot of financial aid after declaring myself independent (grants not loans). I have enough for tuition and I get $3000 a quarter after tuition is paid.
i got a dui when i was 17 and it really fucked my life up and i gave up and became a neet. i'm now 20 and just starting to try to fix things, i know that feel OP even though i'm not as old
