    I recently got bored and started playing through NFS:MW again. I never realised how many SMS messages there are in the early game.

    Alright then. Thanks for answering me. By the way, what do you think is worse. Being highly confident and being a narcissist, or having low self esteem and not being a narcissist?

    Being a narcissist, in my opinion. It's because you don't even know that you have it.

    For those who think AI will evolve to have singularity, look again. There is a website called inspirobots which makes ''inspirational quotes'' Here's what I got

    ''If we can't buy air, what can we buy?''

    ''Remind yourself everyday there's a little prisoner in each of us''

    ''Buy Her''

    ''Enjoy the pleasures of giving up''

    ''Romantic Love Sucks''

    ''Eternal particles are opportunities''

    Let me know what quotes you got from there!

    Agreed.

    Anyways, I think Reddit is a load of crap. There are a lot of comments on there that have stressed me out, including this one that I copied from the Reddit thread or whatever called "Trade school is a joke".

    "And on another note, my passion is competitive gaming and to have a YouTube channel. For the former, there's no other way but to work and get money on the side and then do competitive gaming as a hobby. Same with YouTubing. No, I am not willing to throw away a secure future just for my passions. I can do my passions in my free time and as such, it's overwhelmingly stupid to throw away a guaranteed source of income to make my passion my main source of income. The term "starving artist" doesn't exist for no reason." Aquafuze

    I honestly kinda disagree with this post. Look, making a YouTube channel is not for everyone and there are starving artists out there. However, there are people like Jake Paul that can make a million dollars off YouTube. By the way, a smart idea would be to promote your YouTube channel and give a link to it. You can also start a Patreon account.

    Look, I think Aquafuze can do whatever works for him, but I'm sure there's people out there who make music and entertainment that make a good wage off it. I am aware that there are starving artists out there, but that can be because they don't promote their work, or they don't allow themselves to make money off it. Look, I'm not saying that you have to make your passion a main source of income.

    I totally get the appeal of working at a job that you don't love/enjoy, but you make good money off of. However, there are people out there who make money off gaming and YouTube. Some people actually make a living off YouTube and depend on it as their main source of income. By the way, you can totally do your passions in your free time, but if Aquafuze wanted to make his passions his main source of income. He probably could.

    "I'm seeing the complete opposite with my friends. The ones with the degrees are excelling while the others that thought they didn't need one are struggling while preaching the "college is for suckers" line. Depends on what you do with it" evilfatman89

    Yes, but there are successful people without degrees and there are unsuccessful people with degrees. College is not a black or white thing.

    "Very very ture. I'm right there with you. I got a degree and a decent job. All my friends from high school that took one or two semesters at a community college are still working as servers at Texas Road House. Granted they make some good money but most still live with their parents." naturalborn

    Well, people with degrees (on average) do make more then high school grads. However, there are people without degrees who make a decent wage.

    "TIL if you aren't making money you are worthless and can't possibly be contributing in any other way." huehuemar

    What if you're a nice person that helps people?

    Honestly, comments like this are the main reason I dislike Reddit.

    --- Post updated ---
    By the way, here's some advice. It's up you on whether or not you want to go to college. Do what works for you. Don't do something just because some random internet user says you should. College is not black or white. If you disagree with the things I said. Please explain why.

    Yeah, parts of Reddit tests your sanity. And, yeah, making a channel and uploading videos for a living is not what some people do. (considering i last uploaded like a month ago). And, yeah, I really do think that it is a choice; you are independent, you choose what you want to do, and that you can DEFINITELY use your passion as your job. However, to have a channel and depend your income on it, while do-able, is risky. I'm not saying that people can't work without a degree, no: it's just that you will have to scour to see if anything was copyrighted, if that cafe you walked by was playing a copyrighted song, or if you hummed a song that was copyrighted. It's not really anything much with the person themself, but it's really bad YouTube copyright systems.

    Hoestly, yeah there are people who are very successful with their own passion. And yeah, you don't absolutely have to do it as your main source of income.

    Yeah, like not literally ever single person who does videos for a living will make a million, and using your basis on a small amount of people (or even none) is quite arbitrary.

    I agree. And, if they are living with their parents and they are 21 living in the US economy (which is completely broken), then living with parents isn't much of a problem. However, when youu are nearing your 40's and still live in there, then you gotta go.

    I can make you a little teddy bear, huehuemar, to contribute to your smidge of happiness.

    Serious talk, you can be contributing. Non-profit organizations, you probably use one in your life without kniwing it.

    I fully agree with you, honestly.

    Well, making YouTube videos as a job can be risky, but there might be people out there who make a million dollars off YouTube videos. As far as this whole entertainment thing I'm planning goes. I might get a part time job at a place like Food Lion when I get out of high school until my career takes off, but we'll see where my life goes. I may even go to Hollywood someday and make $50 million off being an actor or a director. However, we'll see. As far as copyright goes. If I want use copyrighted music. I will make sure I get permission from the artist before using it.
    Are you referring to me, or are you referring to evilfatman89?

    By the way, I'm sure you can make a million off YouTube, but that's only if you're successful like Jake Paul, MrBeast, etc.
    Oh jeez, imagine an 80-year old living with his or her parents.
    Exactly, You can make someone a stuffed animal, or make food for them.
    Thanks =D
