Does anyone else feel like life after high school is weird? I'm living at home with my parents attending my first year at a small community college and I'm completely lost. No one is social so I'm still stuck hanging out with my high school friends. Time feels nonexistent. Is this what real life is like?
>>
>he fell for the community college meme

You also sound underage, except for the part where you mentioned graduating high school already
>>
Make the move anon
All you can do
Is provide a setting
Set the environment
To allow people
To be social.
And keep at it.
If you build it.
They will come.
>>
>>26377472
I'm in the same situation. Are you thinking of transferring?
>>
>>26377472
You make friends in high school, afterwards people already have their group they want to associate with
>>
>>26377513
Definitely. I'm only here to begin with due to my state's free Community College program.
>>
>>26377472
Anyone else here have no friends? My days consist of going to cc, doing the work, and spending the rest of my time home alone.
>>
>>26377523

You sure about that?

Because most people drift apart after.
>>
>>26377586
Going through something similar too. I'm getting money basically thrown at me because I'm an Hispanic STEM major that has good grades. I'm such an idiot for not going to a decent school like my sister did after hs and I can't wait to leave desu. Which state, if I may ask?
>>
>>26377608
Right. You lose friends, but you don't gain new ones to replace them. At least not in the quantities that you had at the start.
>>
>>26377713
Tennessee. Computer Science major but can't seem to find the motivation to do the coursework despite it being incredibly easy(easier than high school even).
>>
>>26377472
Go to a state school if you want friends
>>
>>26377472
I know that feeling. Same situation. No one is social. Community college makes you feel like you're going no where in life. Should have done better in school.
>>
>>26377472
Dude life is about to tuck you so hard up the ads. Prepare your anus, boy. Enjoy this easy articifical college life style before you graduate and life fucking rapes you. It's goi g to get much worse than you can imagine. Much worse. But, it will also get better, if you stay positive and not be a fag. Stay away from the college students, they're all pleb tier at best. Nothing but shallow douche bags m8. Even all my high school friends are long gone, as yours will be someday. Be your own man, don't let society and it's ideals run you into the ground.

CC is one of the best deals out there

Don't fall for the "college X-perience" meme, you'll regret it when you need to pay back your loans.
>>
>>26377472
>Time feels nonexistent. Is this what real life is like?

Yes. After spending so much of your life with clear progress markers every year via the schooling system, being set loose is a big fucking nothing.

I'm in my early thirties. Time just kind of slips by. I'm not entirely sure what I did with the last decade. Compared to my life up until the end of high school, the last ten years seem to have flipped past almost instantly.

I'm sure I'll be sitting around twenty years from now wondering where my life went and having no real answer. This is the fate that awaits all of you.

Dude, I went to college, did an enlistment in the Navy and now I'm working full-time living on my own and I still feel like nothing has happened to me. This is your life until you die.
>>
Its not what real life is, unfortuately. I went to a 4 year school, and i felt like time was in limbo the whole time. But it was also the best time of my life.

Now I a 27, married, have a house and responsibilities. I cant just go off and do drugs with my boyfriend (who is now dead, because he decided to live this way forever), stay up till 4 AM and sleep till whenever. I go to work 8:30Am to 5:30PM Monday-Friday and try to earn a little beans. It wears you out. Enjoy being carefree, I miss it.

My plan is to get rich and work my own hours. If anyone is interested in purchasing etizolam let me know I am about to start up a biz to fill a space in the market place. Should be up in running by the end of the month, but if anyone wants some samples in exchange for reviews on reddit let me know.

Heh. Mine is all hicks(Tennessee) and small town normies. My friends are still literally seniors in high school.

Same here. I wish I could just stay home and do the work instead of bothering with coming in. I don't like being reminded of what I can't have.
>>
CC is not for making friends or being social, its for getting enough credits to get your AA and transfer out as quickly as possible. It also acts as a great way to washout the people that don't really want a degree.
>>
The main difference to me was that in high school it felt like anything could be possible after graduation. Once you graduate you quickly find out how hard the real world is and that you are insignificant.

Scale back your expectations and you will be happier.
>>
>>26378012
After graduating, I realize just how little high school prepares you for the real world.
>>
>everything gets better after high school LOL

No. Being an actual adult out of high school is many times more complicated than being a dumbfuck edgy teenager. This is the point in our lives where normal people and robots separate from each other: normies will be able to bask in their new-found independence while the robot will essentially wilt under the pressure and fall backward.

You're probably alright, but I'm a little hesitant about meeting internet strangers from 4chan irl.

Today kinda sucked, I'm the new guy so they had me washing dishes for 2 1/2 hours.
We make a lot of fried stuff. Fried avocados, fried fish n' chips, fries, falafel, portobello mushrooms, etc. Standard pub stuff, like burgers, salads, soup. Most of the money is made from appetizers (we have this pretty damn good bacon-wrapped pineapple thing) and drinks.
It's not the greatest job in the world but it's fine for now. I'm not sure if I want to go back to college or not. Kinda want to see who gets elected for President and where my chances go from there.

I literally half ass everything I do and will ever do.

I can make more money then a highschool graduate but less then some fuckboy with a bachelors.

Word of advice: the first few years in college where you get your basics done suck shit. It's boring and completely unnecessary but once you get into your core classes it gets a lot better.

All the necessities for an adult life and they hardly teach you them.

Life after highschool is weird, I feel really disassociated with everything. Well it's either you spend your life as a normie just constantly seeking validation and enjoyment or you spend your life a recluse like me not doing anything all day. Life after HS is weird and unnatural either way

21 and same position, except I'm about to finish. My social life is nonexistent.

What's the switch like from community to 4 year?

I got accepted into a top 20 from community so I wonder if I'll actually struggle for once.

I plan on transferring to another college and getting a BS but I don't think I can do it.

I can't go from no social life, living in solitude all the time to being in that situation. I'm so fucking awkward and have no idea how to do basic things.

Honestly my plan was to kill myself after cc but i don't think I can do it.

>>26377472

Life is gonna be a wild ride lads

Just worry about working and transferring to a 4 year.

People hang out more at a 4 year.
>>
>>26378012
This. All through high school you're told how special you are and given bullshit easy hurdles to jump over, just so you can feel like you've achieved something.
Real life is totally different, but in a way it's liberating. It makes small successes so much better, because you know they're 100% your successes and they're not just manufactured to make you feel good. I went from being a high-achieving student (ie. Good at learning prescribed curricula and regurgitating them) to a mediocre nobody. But I'm MY OWN medciore nobody, and that makes me feel better than I ever did in the academic hugbox of high school.
>>
I don't talk to any retarded faggots from community it's great. Don't know why you're bothered by not talking to insects OP

I am friends with a few professors though.
>>
>>26379998
First year is the hardest part. Adjusting from piss easy courses (even the hardest community college course was pretty easy) to more difficult and rigorous courses will come as a shock at first. If you can adjust and survive the first year, you should be able to thrive through the rest.

Granted, this depends on your major I suppose.
>>
>>26380104
Yeah, it seems like community stuff is mostly regurgitating information with 0 theory.

My logic is that because I'll have nothing but time I don't really mind working 18 hours a day if I'm actually braindead and squeezed through the system, who knows. Can't say I care much about anything beside the piece of paper that said I did it
>>
>>26380068
They really need to stop teaching this "you are special" and "you can do anything" bullshit in schools. It just sets people up for failure.

This is the true route to take for those that want to play videogames 12 hours a day in high school and still be able to get a job that allows you to continue to play videogames 8 hours a day.

You can do it anon!

Yes, free samples with free shipping. I will be either doing pellets or capsules, and the strength should be the same. Prices will be well below current market for pellets, and there is NO market for capsules right now although folks on forums ask for them, but I intend to sell them for less than pellets. Just kind of want to see what people want and I will get it for them.

Wont be running up till the end of the month but if you email [email protected] I will put you first on the list for samples, which like I said will be free with free shipping for a good number of first time customers, to show I am legit. When I am ready I will send you an email back asking for your shipping address and info to send the samples to.

Also intending to make clonaz pellets or capsules and possibly flam if theres a market for it..i and am open to any other suggestions people want. Thinking of getting a stim in there. I personally dont take RC stims but if theres something a lot of folks want I will order it.

Obviously any products are not for human consumption and research purposes only
>>
>>26379820
sorry read my post >>26380710 and send an email to [email protected] . When I am ready in a week or two i will send you a free sample with free shipping. I will contact you asking for your shipping info when ready

I went to cc for 2 years and then transferred to a main uni, I've met like 1-2 people I"m cool with but since I love at home and don't drink or do drugs anymore because I used to have a heroin problem pretty much the only fun I have at school is lifting and browsing the Ch0n. Trolling on yikyak is pretty entertaining on a uni campus I must admit, but without going to parties pulling girls is non existent for me.

It's nice to go to back to school after figuring out what you really want out of life.

It's clear from this that I'm an idiot, but my point so stands.
