i don't knock nobody for this if they actually stacking up and helping they people with bills but if you just lliving there with no plan in sight or a goal to one day leave and take off in life as an individual on your own than i can't respect that... i chose to save up and move out at 18 to chase a dream, with a clear path, already preparing for life and manhood, not being brainwash or keeping up with the joneses. once you get the feeling of being an individual, and the journey of knowing the struggle, the bottom, restless every night to work your a.ss off, knowing you never ran back to momma. the journey is made to make you stronger spiritually, and not so money driven. you learn about happiness, and what life is all about. somehow you cheat yourself out of that by never fully growing up, and never seeing the big picture. instead of just remaining determine from day one, and taking advantage of the opporunity, instead of always waiting for sh*t to be handed to you, without doing too much work. without breaking bad habits. sh*t don't work like that. life is hard but its true when they say you control your own destiny. if not we wouldn't have oprah, jayz, kobe,will smith, lebron and etc for inspiration. that the result of knowing your destiny and max out your full potential, never know till you try. keep ya head up to those still trying get it and find the light at the end of the tunnel. keep pushing my n*ggas. the power of an education and a open mind, hard worker is limitless

My mom told me when I was 17 and a senior in high school that she was going to charge me rent once I turned 18. Knowing that, I already had my mind made up that I was going to venture out on my own once I graduated high school. To me, there was no sense in paying to live somewhere and not have my own space, privacy, rules, etc.

My adult life thus far (11+ years since finishing high schools) has been filled with high's and low's economically, but not once have I moved back home with my mom. Even though I know she would welcome me with open arms, my pride won't let me do it. I rather struggle and be independent than live at home with my mother as a grown man. To me, it builds character as well.

The only way I see college being a waste is if you took out loans to pay for it and didn't find a job related to what you went to school for -- or found a job which didn't require a degree in the first place.

Computer science and IT is a big field right now. You don't even need a 4 year degree. You can make bank in the IT field with an a.ssociate degree and some certifications.

Information Tech is a big field, but with those small degrees you will end up doing mostly hands on work while those with BA or MBA sit back and watch over you..

I agree with this, to be honest.

I had to grind my a.ss off for my first relevant position. I was simply lucky to get grabbed by a very reputable consulting company right after I graduated with my bachelor's last year.

Because of them, a lot more doors have opened up internally and to other companies just based on the connections I made at my current company and from the reputation of my company alone.


I'm not gonna say it's impossible to be successful without a good network, but it definitely relieves the pressure a LOT.

I was super lucky to get to where I am at in my profession. I dont have the formal education etc. Networking def plays a big part in anything you do.

Hell Im collecting unemployment right now while Im going to school but Ive applied for a couple of unpaid internships just so I can stay fresh and up to date with everything going on. plus It will look great on a resume as well.

This doesnt apply for all career fields. Mainly IT/HR and other "professional" type positions.
