LOL - you know 36 year old me would eventually strangle 18 year old me for being an egocentric narcissistic jerk. I'm not certain how anyone put up with me. I did not know nearly as much as I thought I knew then - I worry that is likely still the case. Am I a jerk now? Sometimes - more than I would like. Was I a jerk then? 99% of the time.

Don't hestiate now; if you do there will just be too much of a mess for 22 year-old through 28 year-old us to clean up despite over a decade of effort.

Take the MCAT even though she wants to go to law school and the LSAT is easy.

And buy AAPL and gold.

Air Power Vector, for the man that has climbed to the peak and wants to look down on the beaten and defeated opponents left in his wake.

I often have this exact thought.

Go to Penn State, spent 4 years and a lot of money at a private university to get a degree in a field that Penn State is one of the top in the nation.

There's no going back and no help for me. Live your life as best you can and don't regret the might have beens.
My Feedback:

Political Correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical,
Liberal minority and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media,
which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

It only costs 150 bucks and a little bit of pen ink to start your own company. I wish someone would have told me that when I was 16, but instead I played football and all I have to show for it is a long temper.

In my case take over the family business and sell it off.

And stop blazing. Sure it'll give you lots of great stories, but you'll get so much more done when you stop.

One advise i can give: Listen to older people! Did not want to then, so i screwed up!

- Smoking pot
- Harcore rave parties + XTC and other substances (remember, it was the 90's)
- Wrong friends

Well considering i have basicly FUBAR-ed my education i did ok... Woke up on time, got some great help from real friends, and picked up the pieces. Some of my dope friends at the time were less lucky...

So listen to people when they think your life is getting out of control.
Yes! I love being in battle! I love the moment when my marker stops being a machine and becomes part of me! My blood boils and my mind goes all white! It's an incredible high! There's no time to think, only action!

<-- Don't give in to this greedy company policy.

After some more thought:

You know all those people you are smarter than. Its a gift. It means nothing if they put in 100% effort and you put in 20%. You have been given major advantages with how you think, your memory, and by your parents. Your mind is not going to last forever at the level it is now and the decline is going to be rocky. Use it and put in a little more effort. See a psychologist and have open and honest discussions - they are far easier now than they will be later and your later plans are not good. And your a conceited arrogant jerk still.
