Hey BHW, I consider this forum to be a virtual home for me, so I wanted to share the newest turn of events in my life with you guys: I just decided to drop out of school. School is the major reason for all negativity in my life at the moment and I worry way too much about it constantly. It drags me down and it leads to a lot of procrastination in all my life activities. I believe that sometimes you need to say fuck it and just do it to turn things around. And I really need that "fuck it" right now. For the next 6 month I have 15 hours per day to focus on IM. I made some good money in the past but I want to extend my knowledge and business ventures by a big amount. I am not without a degree, I have the "Realschulabschluss" which the second highest standard degree in germany below the "Abitur". I theoretically have only around half a year to go for the Abitur but I skipped a huge amount of lessons and my grades are not that impressive overall. If I do something I wanna do it good, so I may retake the "Abitur" stuff later in evening schools if I really feel like I need it. I always have my programming experience to fall back on. Thanks to all the awesome individuals here who make this community such a great thing to be part of, Wish me luck everyone, It is "now or never" for the next few month.
