    Today is a very happy day for me.
    I am sitting in my res room not goin to any of my classes because i realized i dont know what i want to be!
    I had an epiphany the other day that made me think long and hard (thats what she said) on whether i was making the right choice.
    So today i am goin to call the school, get a refund eat some campus food, pack and go for some nice walks around the city!!
    I am so happy. I may go back to highschool for a 12b and take more classes to see what careers are out there or go to a different university and take random classes.

    What do you guys think? Highschool or university?

    Too all the young IM's sit back and really think about what you want your career to be. I never thought about it until i was under pressure. Sit back and really think before hand, so you dont make the same mistake as me!

    :D

    Only recommendation I can make because we have all been there is take a variety of course to see what you like and then work backwards to a career choice knowing what you like. But whatever you do get your ass in college. If you don't invest in yourself you can't expect an employer to.

    Additionally, I recommend that you do work for "the man" at some point so that you have incentive to get away from that trap in the future.

    If you dont know, how should we? You are smart, most would just stay in school because thats what the herd is doing. Follow your heart, find the thing that you love doing, that you have a passion for, that you would work free and long hours to do, not for the money but for the love of it, and do that. Here is a recipe for success: Find what you love doing as above, once you have it, go find the person that does it best. The person at the top of his/her game, work for that person, even if it is for scraps. Be a sponge, learn, ask questions, copy, borrow every single thing you can. Learn his/her system inside and out, then go do it yourself, but bring your youth, energy and passion to it. See you on the millionaires side. School is not the save all, especially today. Motivation, Perseverance and Persistence is. You must have goals, you must strive to reach them. All you need is a little time off to clear your head, find your interests, cultivate your interests, make you future, as no one else around here will. Pick up the book, you can find cheap copies. Think and grow rich, Hill. Oldie but goodie. Stay positive!
