Life, Love, Ambition and other odd sorts.

When I was 17 years old, I framed an ambitious and egotistical plan to take over the universe. More specifically, I expected myself to be enrolled into a leading technical school where I would reign as the best computer hacker/mathematician EVER! Well, I've been going to this so called "leading tech school" for the past 4 years. I believe I might have barely passed another math final. I have just one more of these math courses to complete and I will have completed my math requirement for my degree.

In the very near future, I must contemplate my next course of action. I've gotten through most of my classes with Cs and Ds and I am tired of getting such results. I'm falling short of my devine goal and thus, it's time for me to get my act together. I have come to the same conclusion three years ago and I was quite successful for one semester. Somehow, I have fell into this compulsive rut of failure since then. I hate being the guy that makes false promises to himself and others. Plus, I will be in a difficult position at work if I keep messing up semesters of classes. I am only vaguely sure on what is in my way.

that's exactly what's going to happen to me when i go back to school. I know this because it happened to me all throughout highschool. there'll be a couple of months where I really pull it together and stop being so lazy but it never lasts long enough.

i understand completely. my first year at msu i slacked off really badly, and now my gpa is still paying for it. i have a 2.711 and i need a 2.75 to get into grad school :/

I feel the same way with my cruddy 2.614 GPA. I'm surprised I'm even above 2.5 with the way I do in Math. I wonder if there's still a shot for 3.0, but I'm not holding out on it.

I dropped out of Turkish school if it makes you feel any better... ve şimdi tüm Türkçesi kendime öğrettim!

...and now I've taught myself Turkish! :)

You know, I'm not sure if you're from America, Turkey or somewhere else. Where are you from?

2005-07-28 02:52:57 ET

I'm from a small redneck town 45 minutes north of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA called Butler. You might have heard of it -- it was listed on Jay Leno as 3rd in the nation for heroine usage (something to be proud about).

Anyways, yes, I'm an American just like you (and a crazy one at that for coming to this goddamn country!)

I wonder, are you a Masshole by any chance??? :) :)

And the next question, why the hell Turkey??

A what?! Masshole?

2005-07-28 15:15:02 ET

According to the first hit from google, a masshole is

1. (n.) Any motorist from Massachusetts.

2. (n.) A gigantic butt orifice. Possibly large enough to smuggle large amounts of drugs or refugees into foreign countries.

3. (n.) The bastard that goes 90 mph all the time, cuts you off any chance he gets, and travels a foot behind your bumper even when he has the opportunity to pass you.

That's mean stuff girl.

Nooooooooooooo yanlış anlama!!!!!!!!!! Nooooooooooooo dont get me wrong!

Joke joke! A masshole is an impatient driver from Massachusetts. The REAL question is, are you from Mass???

YOu can call me a Turk-hole now if you want me to :)

Turk-hole is where you insert the tur-ducken.

2005-07-29 15:01:29 ET

hah, how's defcon leo?

Ah, well birk, I'm a bit insensitive because I've only been driving within the last 4 months and I've made a lot of driving mistakes that make me worthy of being a Masshole. I'm from NYC, just like my faq says.

i have the same prob w/ school. i focused on schoolwork after first semester freshman year in order to forget the trauma of a near death experience in a car accident. but now i'm getting bored w/ the college and don't know what i want my major to be and feel like i'm wasting time/money.

2005-08-25 02:14:25 ET

Heh -- I'm sure I'll be a Masshole when I get back to the states. I havent driven for a year! Dont worry about it :) sarıldım (hugs)
