Fuck pure academics, learn a trade or something. Its too late for me, ive decided on leaching off parents forever now.
Why do retards say 'hurr STEM masterrace' when they barely make any money?

you sound like a cool guy, secretly hoping your friend will fail while pursuing his dreams

Neither is essential to the other.

I laugh in your general direction.

Dont blame me, i just went in the direction i was told to

>thinking art vs STEM makes a difference

Success in life is all about luck

>>25717169
Your first mistake was studying CS

Seriously? You're gonna major in a first-person shooter? what a gigantic faggot.
Hope you have some sick walls, kid.
>>
>>25717300
What a fucking sheep you are.

The dude you're talking about pursued a career where he thinks for himself, while you just mindlessly followed the crowd.

No wonder he's doing better than you.
>>
>being in any way shocked that a person with passion and talent is doing well in life.

There's nothing whatsoever intellectual about you, OP
>>
>>25717300
A very intellectual decision.

>>25717169
"it's too late for me..."
stop whining and do something useful that you really like to do, like your friend. Otherwise you think in to years the same about friends who didn't think it was too late.
>>
>>25717169
>mfw an arts student can have his shitty stone sold for thousands of dollars but i, an intellectual cannot get a job for more than 8.5 to 9$ per hour

You're an intellectual who dropped out of a CS degree and doesn't understand the value of the arts? You don't sound sound like an intellectual, OP - you sound like a true pleb, like most STEM students.
>>
>>25717169
Is that your friends work? Because it looks stupid and is not "art" in any way. Unbelievable that people can make money doing this shit.

I dont have any interests.

I know man, rich people gobble up any bullshit in the name of 'modern art'. His work is pretty similar, because honestly its quite difficult to differentiate two chiseled blocks of stone

>honestly its quite difficult to differentiate two chiseled blocks of stone

Classically, sculpture was considered the highest form of art. You are the lowest form of plebeian.

>but muh intellectualism

No, you're not in the least bit intellectual.
>>
>>25717586
>I dont have any interests.

What a surprise you're a boring failure!

>rich people gobble up any bullshit in the name of 'modern art'.

You're really keen to let us all know just how much of a tasteless pleb you are, aren't you?
>>
>>25717581
>openly admitting you're this much of a pretentious wannabe "patrician"
It's just an oddly shaped lump of rock. It's not art and you're the real pleb.
>>
>>25717194
Call the fire department because you just roasted the shit out of OP.

TOPLEL!

I'm happy for your friend. he didn't give up and now it's working out for him. I just wish I wasn't so weak willed.

Barely above minimum wage? There are a thousand jobs you can do when you learn to program. Take that ability to learn computer languages and apply it to anything involving typing non-english into a computer.

I am copying this for /r/justneckbeardthings. Thanks anon. Continue being an intelectual euphoric gentlesir

You're just about the opposite of an "intellectual".

I'm not a sculpting expert, but if you think that's one rock then you're blind.
>>
>>25717169
>i, an intellectual
You're not an intellectual. You dropped out of uni because of low potential future pay. Then you spent years doing nothing.
>>
>>25717300
That's the problem. People inclined towards stem make money with it. People that do what they're told without proper justification deserve minimum wage jobs.
>>
>>25717822
literally nothing he said was euphoric
>2016
>not knowing how to meme
