post #55276 of 125148

Thanks everyone for the kind words, and words of advice.

 

I agree with parts of what all of you have said, and my plan is similar to what most of you recommended.  

 

I plan to continue college, taking one or two courses at a time at UCSB.  It will be far cheaper to do this at UCSB than at my current school.  I really love maths, and I will continue to study that.  This will allow me not only to continue growing my business, but also to focus more deeply on each maths class.  One of the main reasons that this business venture has been profitable is my math education.  Behind every non-thrift purchase is a 500+ line spreadsheet in which I do analysis.  Beyond that, maths is my passion.  Take classes in this way will lower my stress, and allow me to study each topic with greater intensity.

 

I will finish my math degree.  It may take me 8 years, but instead of finishing it lost and in debt, I will finish it with direction and a large chunk of change in the bank.

This is how I now picture you...

That's obviously a Euro 44 because it looks like some tiny kid's jacket. You can see how short it is.

Yeah, good luck DM. I see waaay too many youngsters that are in college simply because it is the thing that middle class white kids do after high school. At your age, with your interests, there is no reason to drop serious money on an LA-based private school (I'm assuming this to be true, given the fact that the only thing UC schools are cheaper than are private schools) if it isn't, at this current moment, a proper fit. That said, I hope you can one day find a way to really and truly contribute to society using the thing you are passionate about (math, not second-hand Kiton). This world needs many things, but among those things are people with skills in math and science and the desire to do something other than finger capitalism's rotten butthole.

I can think of a small sliver of society that'd consider this a worthy contribution...

I may be late to the party but I think this is Huntsman Cancer or one of the local medical companies.
