That's "Doctor Vendetta" to you

I am glad you seem to be on the track to fixing your life, but I would be remiss not to comment that based on what I've read here, you play the blame game quite often. Shit happens in life, and you cant let other peoples unjustified success impact how you live.

Sometimes what defines you as a person is when you say "ok, its not fair hes getting all that shit when he's fucking up so bad, but I have to just deal with it and succeed regardless". You arent doing that, you said you are figuring out how to be just like him--which means, based on your earlier post, you are going to screw the system.

I fear the scenario where you cut out all that you think is a negative influence on your life (good), and think you've solved the root of your problems...and then when shit gets hard and the chips are down, you find other things to assign blame to, when in reality the root of the problem is you. I hope that doesnt happen.

That's fine you dont want a paycut. I just find it funny you saying you're all about image, when really you don't seem to have anything to offer aside from a nice car and you're full of information from self-help guides and the internet.

Not trying to flame you, just trying to give you an outsiders perspective on your character.

Well because my roommate doesn't do jack shit, got worse grads than me, drinks, smokes weed every night and I came home tonight and he's on ecstasy. Yet receiving financial aid.

And my roommate at the first 4 year college I went to did the same thing, and that's mainly why I wanted to drop out.

So ya, life wouldn't be that stressful if the government paid for all expenses, I just found out how to do it, and I'm going to file it tomorrow.


I have a terrible group of people who hang around me, rather my roommate brings lowlifes around. And they drink and smoke and play video games every night. I thought I didn't like school because the teachers were , but it was because I was unprepared for class. I live in an environment that is not keen on studying or going to sleep at a decent hour. I recall asking my roommate to stop playing video games at 1am, or mute it and it was always "just one more game" which turned into hours, and eventually I just joined him.

So our lease is up on july 15th and I'm high-tailin' it.

I found the source of my problems, now it's fixing that. I've been trying to mend, or put a band-aid over, rather than finding the root of the problems.

I once again thank genmay for being a listening ear and a sensitive word.

As for the image thing, I know waiting tables sounds like a shitty job, but when I look at what I make vs a more respect job the pay cut isn't worth it to me at this time. I have a nice savings that will soon disappear come July, but for the past year I've been saving and living comfortably, not paycheck to paycheck.

You're giving up on school because....

You're jealous you have roommate that "...brings lowlifes around. And they drink and smoke and play video games every night." and get away with it, don't have to study and still able to live life etc...
and...
You "thought I didn't like school because the teachers were "...

Those 2 statements right there makes me shut down and not even care to read any other sentence. You sound like every other school drop out. Every rebel. Every emo. Every single person that has ever had a problem with continuing on with school. No seriously. The fact that your roommate is a pothead, doesnt study, and probably still passes is just a fact of life - people will live sweeter, better or even shittier lives than you. Sorry the world isn't equal - suck it up and go to the library if you need to study - our University has ours open to very very late hours (AM), im sure other Universities are even better.

Second you're complaining about teachers? Really? That's something out of grade school man. "I can't pass because my math teacher is BULLSHIT MAN! He fucking wants me to fail!!" Sites like ratemyprofessor exist for a reason - and that to avoid professors that aren't like you. Personally - I looked for professors that don't take attendance, because I find I do much better study for most classes on my own. That's not to say the professors I avoid that do take attendance are bad - just that they probably aren't for me. Sometimes I don't have a choice and it's just time to suck it up.

Why does everyone think going to class is a waste of time? I just took the MCAT and spent over 3 months studying for it, I don't feel like I wasted my time at all.

I'm a cellular biology major and I have a very firm grasp of my knowledge. I agree some classes didn't cater to my intellectual search, but I still found a way to enjoy it.

Also, what's so bad about student loans? I ask you that worked your way to the top without a degree, what happens when you're fired? You won't be able to get the same job again. A person with a Masters or BS/BA will have an easier chance than you. Can someone explain that?

so i have to bust my ass working 6 days a week, while he sits back complains about his job that he works 16 hours a week, and the government pays his bills. Seems right to me.

I should have known the intellect of people on a forum was going to be lacking.

Please IP ban me so I am never tempted to come back.

Answer this question: How does your roommate's behavior affect you?


You're finding excuses to avoid doing something. If you were actually dedicated to getting through school, you'd ignore your roommate, or find a new one. It's irrelevant to your success in school.

You've just proved what I and others have been saying throughout this thread. You encounter a bit of dissent, a bit of challenge, and you crumble like a fucking paper towel.

You're bitter. You're bitter that someone else has an easier time than you, and can't seem to accept that life isn't fair. Your roommate slacks off all the time and drinks and plays around, it's fucking college! You have all the more respect in the world for working your ass off to put yourself through school

Here's a bit of comparison. I have a doctorate, and those 9 years of higher education were all paid for (fellowships, for example). I don't have any student loans. My fiancee put herself through four years of private university education, often going hungry so she could pay for her schooling. She immediately moved to nyc and busted her ass until she made it.

Do you know how much respect I have for her? I can't even quantify it. That's relatively the same respect I have for anyone who works their ass off to put themselves through school. But YOU, you are coming off like a whiny little bitch.

I'd be very careful challenging the intellect of people in this thread, sport.

Dear god you lack the maturity I gained around the age of 14 when I sprouted my first pubes. To put it simply: Vendetta hit the nail on the head but ill try to spell it out to something you can understand...

There are guys born into families where they can snort coke off a hookers ass their whole lives, girls inflow to them like a river for nothing, your taxes pay for tons of peoples bills who don't work, along with low lifes who smoke pot in their dorm rooms all day and barely pass. Get over it or hang yourself because you will see that your entire life

So 2 things: People have it a fuckload easier than you.... and more importantly... An absolute SHITLOAD of people have it a fuckload worse than you. Get over it sonny im 1 year younger than you and rolling my eyes at your replies to legitimate help for you.

I went to private school my entire life. My parents worked their asses off to get me through there, and I went there on financial aid, doing meaningless work studies while all the rich kids lived off their parents' teat and fucked around.

I went to class anyway. I went to labs anyway. I went to work study anyway. And I graduated anyway.

Life isn't fair. You deal with that fact or you let it run you into the ground.

It doesn't matter how much you make or what you drive. Everything you've said here about "knowing" people, or "people are in awe" is a load of crap. You're a full-time waiter with access to the internet. You antagonize or patronize people because you've got this arrogant, self-centered attitude that you're above whatever hand life has dealt you.

If you don't want to go to school? Great. It's really not the right path for everyone. But the one thing that people who graduated with honors or got their PhD share with people like theNoid and others who are making a lot of money and successful at a relatively young age is that they worked their asses off, and that seems to be something you're unwilling to do.

Drop the sense of entitlement, drop the arrogant attitude that you're better or smarter than anyone, and do the work. Until then no one gives a shit about what you think you can do.

school definitely isn't for everyone
don't be afraid to buck the "you must go to college" mindset if you decide it really isn't for you
but also don't use "college isn't for me" as an excuse if you're just wanting to be lazy
and if you don't go to college, definitely be prepared for a more restricted career path

the problem with many people who say "man college just isn't for me" is that they are the same people who constantly complain about their shitty paychecks

You have a shitty atitude, and that alone is going to raise more roadblocks for your future than anything else.

Vendetta hit the nail on the head several times and you kind of ignored it.

Getting a college degree will never be something you'll regret. Being a waiter and buying a porche probably will be.
