i talk a lot about work, but never about going to school which took up a lot of my time in my 20s. i graduated from an expensive liberal arts school in georgia. it took me some time to finally graduate even after attending a community college for a brief period of time.
as a result of very little financial planning of any kind for school i have significant student loan debt. it’s something that unfortunately i never had a plan to pay off at least with a high paying job that i never prepared myself for. while thankfully i found a job that provides benefits and better pay than at the movie theater it’s still not where i’d feel comfortable paying off my student loans.
regardless i finally graduated with a BA after to be honest almost being kicked out twice for academic performance. it was a triumph after it hadn’t been going well for a while.
to be sure this period never went the way i wanted it to. at one point thanks to money i was forced to leave. then figuring out college financing i was able to return although with more student loans.
another thing that didn’t go the way i had wanted it was my relations with women. i thought i’d find her away at school where my school had an all-girls campus next door and hoped one of them would look my way. well i told briefly one story about that – involving my cousin – and how it went down.
for the most part i used social networking as it evolved during that period of time to approach women. unfortunately it couldn’t be described as a rousing success for me although even today i maintain some online connection to these women.
well i accomplished in small ways two main things in my life graduating from a prestigious liberal arts college and changing from a minimum wage job to a higher wage job. one thing i have failed to do is accomplishing a long-term relationship with her.
