Continuing on: once I have amassed enough UNDERSTANDING of whatever the normal person would have learned in FOUR YEARS at a regular college, in what I assume to be hopefully half the time, I will apply for jobs, and well you can see where that's headed.
Meh, phoniness makes me contemplate suicide.
What is that hinders you from being able to do so? Is it your wandering mind (fuck, im starting to sound like one of those phonies)? Or what? I'll take some details and go from there
Thoughts of worthy ideas that I have yet to see genuine threads on:
I believe this is what people are attempting to achieve when they meditate: the loss of the inner voice, the one that thinks, to let go, its really eliminating subvocalization (temporarily).
Welcome to the forum.
Unless you're studying something technical you don't really "learn" anything substantive in college. You do learn how to put up with nonsense, work within deadlines, etc.
More than anything though, a degree is a license to compete in the job market. I think you have a bit of a romanticized idea of how easy it will be to get a "job" with your DIY project (assuming by job you mean something sustainable in the long-term that can also be thought of as part of a career).
You can be a autodidact in college. I sure am. You could also learn a trade or some sort of technical skill that doesn't take 4 years and a waste of money. However hanging out at a library isn't something to put on a resume.
