What should I eat for dinner? I'm thinking about oats, just because I'm too lazy. For lunch I had spaghetti, even if I'm actually on a cut. I was running today, though, so it's kind of okay. It was with a friend. At 11am we met at the local Starbucks.
I also don't see why some people value your achievements more if you didn't work for them. I think it has something to do with not feeling bad about your own lackluster performance if you convince yourself there was nothing you could have done differently.
Since OP fucked off, I was a "child prodigy". Everyone thought I would do such great things. They were wrong, I was discouraged from doing the things I was actually interested in, which probably would have ended up fine. But, my older brother died in a car accident when I was 15, after that I just couldn't keep it together any longer. I basically turned into a pathological liar to keep people at a distance, I kept doing this for around a decade. Stayed at uni long enough to finish my masters, got a job and became a mindless drone. Somehow I managed to avoid alcohol and drugs, or I'm pretty sure I would have killed myself by now.
Hilariously, I am now back in school doing what I wanted to do as a child, the thing that everyone discouraged me from doing. Ultimately, I just want to teach...penance for a wasted life.
Should turn this thread into a wasted potential thread.
>>7132140 Which country? Hungary? Only asking because I live there. What happened after you completed your B.Sc.? Why did you burn out? What are your plans for the future btw? Is there anything that interests you? Do you have any purpose? Do you want to be in a relationship (it is likely that you are still a virgin, and it is extremely unlikely that you have a girlfriend)? Do you want to make big bucks?
As a child I got tested for a 140 iq, I would constantly get invitations to gifted schools and programs...but my dumb child ass rejected them all because I just wanted to fit in with the "normal" children. I eventually dropped out of school and didn't return to education until I was 24. I feel nothing but regret, I wonder if things would have been better if I took the other path, or if I was just doomed to failure from the beginning.
>>7132235 I always wondered why people lied on an anon site.
I just realized, the anonymity doesn't matter. As long as they get to say it freely, they feel good. They feel like they are worth something, seeing something so prestigious, on the internet, written by themselves.
>>7132407 >this is a taiwanese knife sharpening advice forum This is what I thought too. I'm literally here since 2009 and in 6 years I've not obtained a single piece of advice regarding my knives. Fuck this gay earth.

People have told me that education majors are the thickest people in higher ed. I guess the old saying "those who can, do; those who can't, teach" rings true for people working in lower levels of education.
I never really interacted high school teachers much, save for one who was from Australia and taught geography. She thought I was smart, poor woman tried to get me on the right track.
Top fucking kek, you're not a child prodigy because you completed a math BS at 19. It's not uncommon to be through it when you're 20, all you need is a head start in high school. Undergrad math is easy. Quit thinking you're so special.
