You know Ronin, you have to grind a bit before you can level up.

...

I'll just leave that there.

You could get a job and save up, apply to scholarships...take your first year or so at a community college on the cheap then transfer. That sort of thing.

Don't just jump into it. Make sure you know what you wanna do, mainly because you just end up coasting in classes you probably don't want to be in.
Example: I love psychology, yet I decided to go for a bio major, I hate science classes, but love the subject. Make sure you love what your going for man. Otherwise it's gonna be a fucking miserable experience.

@Razzly: I think "Fine" is French for "The End" so with you being a Finn, and having a panda for an avatar = The end of the world is a cute Panda.
(yes I know it uses a special 'e' or some such crap)

@Ronin: in 2000, at the age of 19, I was working for a lawn mowing group for about $60 a day (on the days there was work for me) and attending full time University.  Later that year I was a pizza delivery driver, then in 2001, after completing a year of my Uni, I got a part-time job as an IT techy (sort of help desk role back then) in a meat works.  I kept doing full-time Uni until I finally got a full-time Job in the Help Desk for a systems and software company in 2002 and switched my Uni to Part time.  I completed my uni in 2004 (graduation in 2005) and by 2006 I was earning over $70k Aus.

I have other friends who have started out as call operators for credit companies, cleaners, burger flippers, checkout grubs and more, but they've all since gone on to much bigger jobs.  I have one friend who's never had his first job and he's stuck, still trying to finish his Uni and still picturing himself in jobs that you simply can't walk into with nothing.  I have another friend who slammed his Uni, graduated with Honours, got a job as a casual clerk in a financial firm and in less than a year, became a financial advisor and accountant with only one test left until he completes his CPA (often considered the hardest certification in the world).

Best advice I can give you, is either get a crummy job with government or some mob and enjoy a more relaxed life or go hell for leather, get a crummy job, slam into your Uni and pour 80 hours a week into those two areas for at least the next 3 years of your life.  You'll get one rejection after another for the jobs before you get one but once you have it, even if you're fired, it'll be that much easier to get the next crummy job until you're working the crummy jobs in your desired field and then its one rung of the ladder after another.

Keaoden: I get that ALL the time. Especially from my own friends.
I didn't want to acknowledge it at first, but this actually was funny.

charles: wow that sounds like hell on earth.  I know it gets better after time, but I probably wouldn't be able to make it.  Not without large amounts of drug use.  But then I am an extremely lazy person, or at least I physically and mentally revolt against doing things that I don't want to do.  I have a lot of willpower so I can manage to sort of function at levels that are acceptable to an employer, but that's about it.  But I guess the important thing is Ronin's attack plan and whether he can handle it...(and/or even wants to handle it)

Well, if I may wax emo for a moment, it's always been a chronic problem. I've always been the outsider in groups, never the one invited along (and often my schedule just *happens* to interfere with those kind of things anyway...sigh) despite me being the most dedicated friend to any of them.

So, yeah. I need to find people that actually return the favor.

I always found friends overrated.

But I do know how you feel C.D.S.M. I was also the outsider everywhere.

oh so wait you were serious?

I just assumed it was because irl you act like you do here, which seems to involve intentionally evoking animosity.

so I thought that was a joke, forgive me :D

Well, just because it was a joke doesn't mean it's not true. I tend to exaggerate myself to comedic levels to make myself more appealing.

Mildly negative pessimist = disliked.

Impossibly negative pessimist = endearing.

Yeah so I'm tempted to call you out on that one.  I guess since this is the shrink's sofa it's ok?

Mildly negative pessimist = doesn't get attention

Impossibly negative pessimist = gets attention

it's true though!

There's no such thing as negative attention! Hence "endearing".

Well anytime that shows some type of emotion in a mild form it Usually gets blown off. But if you show a much higher level of that emotion (even without making a scene), people empathize to a greater extent.

Yeah, but they don't know how to wield that attention. See, if you're going to rape children, do it in public and then proclaim yourself a Demon Incarnate!

Also, do it in a whacky cosplay to see if you can get a completely fallacious association with anime fans and thus ruin their reputation. Even worse than it already is, I mean.

"The squeaky wheel gets the oil"

Certainly true, the louder and more often you shout, the more attention you get as opposed to the quieter groups.  Look at the War in Iraq.  Massive protests against the action and media attention all pointing at it being wrong, but poll after poll showed the more quiet majority supported it (not trying to start an argument on the war here, just using it as an example).

Individuals and minorities around the world and across time have generally sought to shout louder than the majority to get more attention to themselves or their cause and drown out any opposition.

The reality is that rather than complain about such people, you need to follow their example and stand up or speak up for yourself.  But you also need to know how to emphasize and when to do so as shouting all the time or in the wrong way will simply numb people to your cause and you end up as the boy who cried wolf, unable to get the help when you need it more than ever.

I have until June 4th to get a haircut. And I haven't had a haircut in almost 5 years.
I don't know if it qualifies as a mental problem, but it's still a problem. And I could probably use some mental support.
I kinda feel like I'm going to be a different person. I'll definately look different. But I don't want to feel different.
Also I have all those little habbits that involve my hair (using it as something convenient to keep my hand busy when I'm nervous) and after it's gone I'll go crazy without those habbits..... :(
