Many ceo and many have said they wanted to hire me. Screw gpa. Ill get a job through connections

I'd still finish proper tertiary education in any case if I were you. Even if you're not going to apply the gained knowledge, a degree shows proof of intelligence and discipline, which is useful even when you have a lot of experience in the job you may be applying for. Plus, once you start working there usually is no return, living the student life is fun, and it will all end when you start working.

And I totally get what you're saying too. I get real low grades for stuff sometimes too, and I always feel cheated when that happens -- like I spent all that effort for naught. I realize this may sound odd coming from an over ambitious straight A student, but it's true. Sometimes school can be ridiculously tough, but always aim to not let your self-confidence sway. Personally my self-confidence is prone to go on roller coaster rides though.

Almost always it's the system that is wrong -- not you. You won't get a nice constant amount of workload and difficulty at university, it varies hugely, also from person to person. You may be struggling with certain things, but don't let that get you down. In such cases you usually aren't the only one, and even if you are then it's not that you're doing anything wrong either per se. Just bad luck.
If you get frustrated about it, it'll only pull you down. I know this all too well. Just try to not let it get you down and keep studying hard. It may be tough, but such is the way of life.

Connections are almost too important nowadays :P
 

Yep, thankfully i'm in this program or I'd be screwed. The sheer amount of influence I'm getting is insane. I'm talking to people and having random informal lunches with people in my University(professors) that are heads of their departements or deans of my entire college and just is amazing how awesome it is.

Yeah I will. However all my professors for this program have all hinted at and even said that if this program is extremely successful. They will want most of us dropping out/taking extremely reduced credits. My College's business programs are having problems in the last few years and my school isn't too known for business and entrepreneurship. My program is supposed to put Virginia Tech on the map. The amount of funding we are getting is insane. The Univ is spending $100,000 on each student here in terms of an investment.

Yeah, the system is flawed.

Right now I'm cheering myself up with some Joshiraku.
This show never fails to make me laugh :D
 

It sure is ♥


There are sooooo many references to other animes, games etc in this show.
They really love to make fun of K-On and even had a Persona 4 reference in it!
 



I could just dedicate a whole thread to all the great jokes from this anime....

May way of dealing with it is doing social stuff usually. When I'm busy talking with others I tend to forget my troubles.
Speaking of which, does that mean I have become extrovert instead of introvert?

Yeah, I also do that. Just going out with friends for lunch as a way to take my mind off the things.

 

Nope. Introverts can be very outgoing.

Then what the hell does the word even mean?
Reading the Wikipedia has not helped that much. But I from the description I'm definitely an introvert/ I think it's best to say I lost my social awkwardness.

The K812 is pleasantly different from other big name flagships. It doesn't shout at you with a sound signature, it just plays nicely with pretty much everything.

I took a course on this.

 

Introverts are just people who would prefer time to themselves and quiet time rather than spending it with friends. Many people tie 'introverted' to hikimori which is not totally correct. A big portion of Americans identify as introverted in that they value time by themsleves rather than with everyone. However most are outgoing

 

Introver!=hikimori

Yeah I know.

It's just that a word loses it's meaning when the actual definition and the definition associated to the word by the majority conflict.


Plus it's freaking personality descriptions. It's kinda like horoscopes.
Once you read it you immediately identify with it if it isn't too radically different from your self-view.

I find myself to associate both with extroversion and introversion, just more with the latter. Which only show that personality descriptors like these are portrayed far more black and white than they truly are. In reality they are a blurred grey spectrum. Whether or not you personally fit in with either side of the descriptor is more dependent on (biased) self-view than your actual personality.
