I'm about to turn 23 in 3 months with no job and no college. I have around $2k in the bank. It hit me recently how much time I've wasted since high school. Crazy stressed and lost right now. I was never a 9-5 person, I just can't function like that. Waking up, working for someone else, then earning the same no matter how much harder you work, like a robot, for the rest of your life. I don't really have a passion I'd pursue, so I don't know what I would even study. In HS I tried a little bit of PPD and made around $100 then stopped. I know IM isn't glorious and that it's hard work. I'm just not sure what to do right now. If I pursue IM full time, I'd put 14 hours a day into it, like my life depended on it, literally. Where can I be in a year if I do this? I realize that's kind of a silly question and depends on lots of things, but yeah. How realistic is IM as a full time, long term career though?
