One last thing

Why should you bother listening to me any way?

I'll tell you why. I don't care about your opinion of me, just like you don't care about my opinion of you. So with that said, I’ll give you my biased view of how life works and what you should do to get the most out of it.

Where I was (read: boring Background info)

I didn’t fit in one crowd in highschool - probably because every year I was maturing and changing my lifestyle. This allowed me to develop relationships with all types of people. I've had friends that scored perfectly on their SATs and friends who dropped out of high school and got their girlfriends pregnant. I've had friends who lead their church youth groups and friends who have tripped on acid. I've had friends who've sold drugs then gone to prison and friends that have overdosed on synthetic drugs and are no longer with us. All of these relationships have shaped my life and I have learned something from each of these people.

Where I'm at (aka The Present)
College is over but the learning is not. I am now working in the corporate financial world in my chosen field of study. I'm still young, but I've already learned many lessons which I will pass on. One thing I will say now is, if you think that popularity contests end after high school - you are dead wrong. The corporate world is another popularity contest, only with much higher stakes. I hope to navigate this world and end up on top one day. So the advice I'll be giving you is the advice I'll be heeding myself. Hindsight is 20/20 so enjoy this opportunity to learn before you get thrown into the fire.
