So I have never been great at making short sweet postings ever…
To start off and give a view of my situation.
I am almost 30, I have a reasonably upper IQ…not super genius or anything.
However, I spent many of my early 20’s years…well slacking.
I had issues completing HS due to my home life, personal mental health etc. Rough childhood and all that fun stuff made it hard for me to find interest in school. While when I did apply myself, I did exceedingly well…but life happens. And after moving over 4 times I ended up dropping out then achieving a G.E.D (Yaay)
Now fast forward about almost 10 years, I kept working crappy retail jobs and bottom of the barrel deals…cause they were easy to get into (Hindsight, 0/10 would not recommend gas stations.) I was going nowhere, and technically until I find a solution to my current debacle still going nowhere. However, I just enrolled in a choice University for computer programs development and security (Lol what is security) My passion for computers has been there since I was a kid, when my uncle built me my first computer a win 95 (Yikes thinking about it makes me feel like an ancient one)
I loved taking it apart playing with everything…(Bluescreen every other 20 minutes) Nowadays, I build my own custom computers and have been advent about learning everything about VR and in general programming. Now I can play around and learn some things…but unfortunately going nowhere doesn’t pay and I like expensive things apparently. So my journey to school…(In grand egoist fashion if I graduate, I will be the first person on my mothers side with a college degree) I guess the best question I can ask before I yeet myself a rabbit hole, albeit I am passionate about computers…I am left with a question, is there a place among this path for someone like me? Someone who started out later, and with a not so pretty and flowery resume and gaps in history…(I have done a lot of things in barter manner between jobs to stay afloat)
Sorry for the long book
Am I too old and inexperienced to learn and have time to become part of this industry?
