Up until before dropping out, I was like Neo from The Matrix, always feeling there is much more to life but just couldn't figure out. Then I was introduced to books, and blogs and the gig economy and the self-help world. These things acted like Morpheus for me. Then dropping out was just like taking the red pill. Now in the training phase of unlearning and learning new things.

P.S.-Sorry for being so dramatic.:p

I was going for all the wrong reasons. My heart was never in it and up until I found this website and podcast, I thought I was the only one out there feeling unfulfilled with school.
Haha well welcome to the community! You are DEFINITELY not the only one ;)

Dropped out because I went through 3 majors in 1 year, was depressed, and needed to take control of something in my life so I didn't feel totally helpless.
Was so worried I made a bad choice, but since my loans are almost paid off I'm glad I made that choice!
That's great! :)

The prerequisites for getting into computer programming classes was just about every math class offered. And, the guys in the computer club were snobs. The club president seemed like he had a huge ego, and loved to tell me what I couldn't do. Yeah I break stuff sometimes, but that's how I learn. Tinker with stuff to understand what's going on. Tear it apart, put it back together. Examine the pieces. Fathom what this does and why it's important. If something isn't working, figure out what happened to cause that. I'm self taught by reverse engineering.

Here's the question. Don't understand it? Here's the answer. Figure out how the question leads to the answer. I'm weird. I work some problems backwards.
