At what age would you say its to late to ''make it''. I'm 26 and starting college next semester. Do I have a chance?
>>
>>34469254
Define "making it" or at least your definition of it anyway.

Nothing wrong with starting college at that age though. If nothing else you will have a different set or experience and knowledge than most your classmates unless you're taking night or online classes.

I felt I had a leg up on most others as a returning college student. Not because of the course work I'd done before. I just felt more on top of shit with knowing how to focus better and network unlike the first time I did college.

Dude, it's never too late to make it, whether that means getting swole, getting educated, getting happy, or getting successful. Shit, my mom didn't start school until she was 28 and raising two kids by herself and now she makes six figures and owns a very nice home. Don't let yourself think you can't because then itll just be a self fulfilling prophecy. Lift hard, work hard, study hard, and have discipline and there's little you can't do.

>i honestly thing the only way i'm going to make it is by cutting myself off from everything and everyone.

Bad idea. Don't go down the road of avoiding friends and partying. I tried that earlier this year for the first few months where I worked out like an animal. Coming home from work and then lifting weights never having any fun time to let off some steam. I noticed my gains started to stagnate because of stress and a lack of play time with friends.

Here's my advice. Work hard and pay your bills or school.... and then every so often do something fun and a little wild. What I do is about once a month I go ham with booze with my close friends (usually at a house party).

To make a healthy balanced life requires play time anon. Work hard, play hard.... but responsibly. After my night out of drinking I detox for the next several days for balancing my health out.
>>
I'm starting college again this next semester I am 25, OP.

I'm 25. I have a bachelor's from Europe but now that I live in Canada I'm in school again. I took some courses last year at night and now I'm full-time student. I'm still waiting for an answer on my transfer credits report but I'm not expecting much. I'll probably have 3 more years ahead of me, at best.
Like you, I also feel bad about it sometimes. I feel like a looser. But, anyway, it's better than not trying, and I'm pretty good at everything as long as I give a shit and keep motivated.

Meh, I'm 26 and about to graduate this year. I have to say, socially it's not great. I'm living in a college town and sometimes I feel like I'm barely treated as a human. Everywhere I go, in school, around town, I'm given this "skeptical" look, as if no one is quite sure what I'm even doing there. My major requires a lot of groupwork and whenever I'm in the group they just talk to each other and as soon as I say anything they all stop and look at me with this freaked out expression as if they're scared of me. It maybe doesn't help that my hair is already going grey.

I can tell you're not very bright if you think I failed college the first time around.

I already have a Bachelor's degree but in order to work in the field I wish to work in I will have to go back to college and chip away at courses designed for that degree. I know it's a hard concept for you to wrap your little head around but I'll be patient with you.

Dude it can be done and has been done a thousand times before you. You know what you have to do so buckle down and get this show on the road.

I had to cut back on going out every weekend to focus on school and work. Learn to make school and work your social life if possible. I made lots of friends in class and looked forward to coming to class, helping others out and studying.

And if you're doing good in class you can always start a study group or help others out. You never know when you'll need their help too.

Successful people don't do that, where have you failed in life to feel the need to do that? I can see you have your education and finances in order, but what about other aspects of your life?

I think it might depend a bit on how you age though. I went back at 28 not really knowing how I would fit with the younger crowd, and can honestly say I have never had this much interest from women before. I have to say my looks have aged well, though.

Confidence definitely has a lot to do with it too. Maybe this guy is projecting his insecurities too much. People pick up on that.

I know a guy who always wanted to study engineering, but through whatever life choices didn't.

Then in his early 40s he finally decided to go to school and give it a try. He's 44 now, and just got accepted into a graduate program.

I think the age thing is more than anything just in your head. The old saying "age is just a number" is true. It only affects you as much as you let it. Sure you will stick out a bit, maybe hear some whispers or comments or get some looks, but don't worry about it.

I partied out during my early twenties, so I'm finishing at a slightly older age (I'll be 29 when I graduate).

Honestly, it's way easier than when I was younger. Kinda like what >>34469296 said. And it's strange because with certain assignments I can tell that my younger self would have had trouble with it. Now I don't.

Top it off, talking to people, networking, and making friends just isn't as difficult anymore. It's strange, really, because a lot of us get this image of college being the best years of your life, and it wasn't when I first started. Now that I'm a little older, it is. Plus, 19 and 20 year old college girls are easy as fuck.

Starting college late is a bit like starting lifting late. You won't reach your ultimate potential, but people rarely do anyway, and you'll end up much better off than if you didn't do it. Plus if you work hard and smart you'll outclass tons of people who started early, but stopped improving.

I'm black, so one of the few advantages I have is that I meet the "cultural" requirement for a lot of scholarships. Plus, I have experience teaching at "urban" (AKA poor, black) schools, so that always looks good on applications for some reason because I can just make up some bullshit about how I can relate to the kids and want to change shit (even though I came from an upper middle class family).

White people love hearing stories about how poor black people are struggling.

And what's stopping you from making up some sob story to bring white people to tears?

Like I said, I come from a house with both parents, well off, and I always had everything I wanted. I still talk about how hard it was living in the ghetto as a kid and seeing my friends take the wrong path even though I grew up in a white neighborhood in suburbia.

The white people reviewing that shit don't care if you made it up and they sure as hell won't check. They'll just see that you're black, automatically assume you're from the ghetto anyway, and pat themselves on the back for doing their good deed for the day by helping some little nigger get an education.

20, 30, or 60, you have to ask yourself how you would like to look 5 years from now.

Buffer, stronger, leaner, or the same or fatter than now. There is your answer.

Thanks for the responses, I know, "it's me," etc, but I think that probably goes for most people on this website, none of us are really normal. Being older is just one more strike against you, maybe you could get away with the rest of your shit if you were the same age, etc.

I've been able to make friends in most other settings of life, but at a nice college with young, superficial kids, it's just not happening. There's too much weird shit about me.

med school sucks balls. i worked my ass off in undergrad, 3.8 GPA and got an okayish MCAT (12 PS / 9 BS / 8 VR under the old system.) did the extra-curriculars, applied, interviewed, and was accepted to a private US MD school. 1 semester in and i hated it so much that i dropped out.

Aw shiet, going grey that early must suck. I'm 25, but if I didn't mention it, I'm 100% sure nobody would think I was any older than the average student. 18-25 is all pretty much a wash as far as I can tell...

I went to university for 4 years, but for the last year I was horribly depressed and basically committed academic suicide by not doing any of the assignments/not showing up for tests. I was actually required to withdraw for good.

I've been working full-time for three years at a dead end job for just above minimum wage and I'm pretty close to feeling totally dead inside, so I was thinking about going back to school. I'm not totally sure whether I'd even be able to get in anywhere with my GPA status, although I had a pretty respectable academic standing before that depression set in.

Age 35
Former military specialized forces
Work as a park ranger or mountain rescue, make enough money for vidya, books, lifting, guns and rock climbing.
Spend every day doing what you love, come home to weights and books, play grand strategy and mount and blade into the night, have a cup of tea, go to bed repeat. I wouldn't make much money, but it would be a fun life.

At the moment, I am competing in powerlifting competitions with a 1450lbs total, oly competitions with a 300kg total, and I climb about 4.12c (too big to compete well.)
I am in with the next round of BUDS.

People think about two things way too much.

Money, and pussy.
And neither are really worth much.

5.12c*

>i honestly thing the only way i'm going to make it is by cutting myself off from everything and everyone.
This is my situation. Involuntarily of course because I have no friends. You get ripped as fuck because there's no peer pressure to drink or deviate from your diet, but it's incredibly ronery. ;_;

I'm 31 and in the best shape of my life - easily made it prior to then - but not to /fit/ standards. I've lifted on and off since High School but never kept with it until I was like 29, so for the past few years is when I really put on muscle.

Just eat right and be consistent. No I didn't use any /fraud/, but then again I'm not really shredded.

The Boomers are going to work until they are dead. There's no reason to believe X and Y will be any smarter than they were.
I heard someone claim that only 3% of men can bench their own weight.
Obesity is frighteningly relevant.
If you were born in a western country you can have a better quality of life than most people in the world, even if you're homeless.
Whether you fail or succeed you're going to be as dead as the alpha guy before too long and chances are neither of you are going to be remembered. No one is going to give a shit that he had a nice house and car.

Okay, this is getting nihilistic. My point was supposed to be that, with some effort and foresight, a guy that makes it at a later age can have a better life than any of the normies that were born into good homes, with good parents, good genes etc.

OP are you a GI-Biller?


I have these feelings every day, I'm gonna be a dumbass among other brighter minds in those lecture rooms after I gtfo. I'm constantly worrying about the future.
