RIP my BOI WARNICK sometimes i won't think about it for days, and then one random minute it will hit me sometimes... and I've even broken down in Park Lane , crying and shit , fuck
And yup, getting older sucks I was just about to post that cause its 2am and I felt nostalgic for this site
But no, foreal, getting old - it slips up on you, and honestly, most if not almost all the people i shared so many of the dopest years of my life skiing east coast park and urban with them.... Its weird to think where everyone is.
Im not trying to be that kid to just drop in out of nowhere, a and say whats good for no particular reason out of my way... no but i miss 2004-2005
Here's the thing I figured out through above all:
It's mostly worthless to try and explain to someone who is 14, 15, 16 what they have still and don't realize it at all (least with this demographic ha) and that includes me without a fucking doubt......... I actually have no idea what I thought, that I would YUNG for pretty much ever...
And I still am YOUNG relative to other ages, but fucking serious I'm going to b 30 in almost 3 years makes me want to cry
The perspective you gain or are supposed to, like I said all along that I WOULD TOO!!!!! the issue is especially get caught up in a world of being stoned 24/7, feeling great, thinking ur pretty dope when its called for...... laughing when u fuck up, but overall its (almost) impossible to explain the advice and suggestions I would give anyone who is right NOW The age i was young' east here... 2004-2008 at most.
I could tell you about how its not my opinion, just a fact.... that anyone who is on college loans or any of that shit is retarded or just ignorant.
IF you were born by parents who figured out the game of life, aka. had or have money, then fine, by all means go to fucking Art School , Film School whatever... or anything haha
BUT if they were not, usualy younger parents, but not always.... and can't or won't help you out pay for college a penny, fucking don't go to that shit!!!!!!!!!
Its a BUSINESS literally, trust me, Ive gotten to see things around Harvard's faculty/administration/the president etc. back b4 i peaced out, that Im not saying its some huge conspiracy. Not at all, its quite obvious, to myself now at least....
So I dropped out, and sure like I said if you are having no issues with it, really loving it , and getting through the academic part of it fine - it really doesn't hurt at all obviously.
What is NOT simple? High school, like FUCK that shit ever again, 5 days a week, waking up at 6:30am or w/e and just having SO many classes, with work due for almost all of them of some sort EVERYDAY or close to it, and followed by simultaneous exams and shit. Goodluck , and adderall will make it SO MUCH EASIER but (it takes A LOT out of me to say this..) the thing is that it might ruin your life to a degree.
Im addicted to pills.... no doubt... and my doctor is my drug dealer no doubt. But after a while the pain gets bad enough u just wana feel OKAY and ski and chill and not have that thing
to the coding thing..
Funny how many people are ignorant of developer jobs being THE ONLY job sector that has an influx of POSITIONS PPLZ ARE DYING TO HIRE SOMEONE FOR.
And guess what? Unlike ALL your friends, if you take this route, which does take a great deal of self discipline and understanding of how things actually are... but if you do, you'll be out of high school, go move somewhere dreamland to ski if thats what your about, but close enough to also a medium to small city at least - thus it has the companies, start-ups, and corporations that
- don't care what your sophomore year math and chemistry grades look like..... they care if you can impress them or at least SHOW them, usually after or before any more traditional interview talking shiet.... To solve an issue right in front of them "live" or "build something that _______ and therefore does ______ "
I know a lot about Google's interview process, and are down the street from me but they are not normal,
You can easily be done with that b4 you are done with high school. Or start earlier if u are smarter. Whatever.
But then you can tell the world to suck ur dick because they will, and you will have companies fighting over you - really awesome, really high paying ones...
dont do that, or do that and then NETWORK as much as possible, and start something with 2-5 people id say tops, obviously anyone who doenst belong in that clique needs to be out, but you can quicker than u could imagine build a start-up that sooner than later, transforms into actual full established company status etc./
EVERYTHING increasingly is controlled and about technology obviously, so please someone tell me 1 reason that MAKES SENSE that you would get hung up having to have a stupid fucking piece of paper on the wall, unless you are going into law or medicine basically - you MIGHT make $30,000 starting out on average, and get up to like $80,000 after years of hating ur life probably and just that office space shit
or learn how to write code, and its not just for "nerds" anymore hahahaha cause then I'm a nerd , which is just silly...
Seriously, all the jobs you get after that, especially as I said, starting on it young with free amazing online resources to get things rolling immediately... and in edition after a while even go to (Hackreactor - SF the best that exists so far), and yeah its not bullshit at all that 99% of everyone completes the program, and 98% get a job that starts at 98,000$ the least, to an average of $104,000 i think.
What does this have to do with the thread? Cause getting older turns into ONE huge fucking super lame money miserable grind, and I'm not about that never was. Dropped out of college because i can learn 25x as much, and more pertinent info into my long term and solid memory, about how things work, and therefore cursing over the learning curve - THAN anyyy school.
But if you do that, or better yet, do something WHILE you are in high school, its extremely possible:
- Before you are 18, sell drugs, like serous weight, but be extremely smart and only if you are extremely smart and brilliant about it... better start young, and know the game even if its mostly or all white suburban rich kids etc. Example? I have an asian homie from one of the high schools I went to.... and he started selling grams and 8ths of bud early, like between 8th and 9th, but by 12th grade he had done what ALWAYS happens unless ur just a sketchy ass person and no one will fucks with you .
But assuming you know the deal, like him, who you would never stereotypically expect, he graduated HS in 2011' like me... but with close to $500,000 / half a million dollars put away. Then he moved to yayo, and sold both, but half a mili isn't that crazy when you are picking up 50 lbs of bud at a time... and selling each one so fast, for no less than $3600 (east coast)
but then ya, I don't know, its a lot better to get in trouble before you turn 18 anyways, so w/e , If I could go back Id still have all the fun skiing that I did, SOME or MOST maybe,.. of the partying I did but probably would of toned it down a little or a lot...
Blacking out becomes not cool. And i was young blackout for so many years.
But in edition to hustling weight, to regular customers who only grow in their wealth too which means they start taking off more and more off u at a time, so you can get rid of 50 lbs in 1-2 weeks absolute tops, without ever driving anywhere or doing anything where statistically or physically it would be possible to get busted ,anomalies aside
Put A LOT of that into investments, mutual funds, keep like 100k to play risky with...... and if you a bit of smart but mostly lucky , you might flip that to 3x the 100k$ amount in a very short period of time while u do nothing.
But that's almost besides the point, if you aren't about that stack$ hustle life, then moving on.....
THINK ABOUT IT: Your tuition is going to cost on average roughly, what? $40,000 approximately. A YEAR.
Again I said, plenty of parents of kids - many legends on NS that I grew up with and crewed up with , their parents didn't think twice about floating $60,000 year bill + money to drink and party and travel to shit like IF3 etc...
And I fell under that category too , but it can almost , not quite but almost be a disadvantage because the point of college is ultimately "TO GET A JOB?" Right?
Well...... sadly only a very small % use it to its potential or even remotely anywhere close. Instead, its a good excuse to not worry about real life for 4 more years, not worry about money, have it not be quite real, everything paid for - and yup, party, fuck college pussy, and have a ton of fun and sleep in all while doing it !
IF thats why your going, u have to just be honest with yourself..... then don't. Or even if part of your excuses are saying well "I'm not going get hired without a degree in something"
Not true. Look at Matty B here on NS originally - from St. Michaels college, VT.
He may of finished i forget I'm at least a few years older than him, but nonetheless, what happened? He had a THOUGHT, right there, touching while zoning out halfway his cord on his headphones in his room or something like the way I'm saying it, and wondered why they essentially had to be so fucking lame and break easy and just be white that gets dirty, and not everyone wants that shit.
So unlike the other 500,000 people, he actually got RIGHT on the internet and found out if a company existed that produced what he had a potential chance of coming up with first......
At that time? No one did. Yessir, and I haven't talked to him in years, but really, I Know you are BaWlin hard, Matty B , props.
However, that was a mix of luck, personality, and ambition / to not just be a lazy fuck
But if you want to make as much money as Matt does promised, take the money you were going to spend on college and invest it into launching either a start-up IF and ONLY IF you are that type A personality and yet also have that nerd in you, as well as are just driven independently.
So long story short, people will do what they want, but its crazy how I see these little kids , even their parents making them do all this BULLSHIT just to try and "have the perfect college resume"
Again, I've been lucky to become influenced at an extremely young age by some really fucking incredible people, just due to luck, and yet I haven't broken across yet and I'm 27.....
But in the end, I believe that without a doubt, if I made it through all the years ,have done my fair of stupid things, should be dead for sure.. but now Its weird, I'm not looking too much older than I did when I was 22 I think...... just your brain does change, and as much as I
