I'm 20 years old, living at home, and struggling to go to community college. I've been made the move from 50NL to 100NL/100PLO a few months ago and have done well over a large sample 24 tabling putting my liferoll at ~$35k(not including a $25k car I inherited because I'd never sell that)
The majority of the classes I've enrolled in I've stopped going to. Chemistry in particular, I've failed twice, just because I can't see the point. I took the same class in High School and received an "A". 2 years later I've forgot everything I learned. So why spend so much time relearning impractical, excruciatingly boring information that in 2 years I'll forget again? I have no motivation to get a college degree because of how much tedious work it entails, the huge amount of money it will cost me, and all the people I know who have graduated with degrees the past ~5 years and are working as pizza delivery boys or as assistant managers at grocery stores.
My social life isn't good. I've lost contact with my good friends from highschool, and the only people I still talk to are the people I went to highschool with that didn't go to college or are going to the community college. I only hang out with them when they want to deviate from their regular activity of getting hammered in someone's basement/appartment -- fun right?
I very much enjoy playing poker 30-50hours/week and seem to be able to make a decent amount doing so. My plan at the moment is enroll for the fall semester at my community college while grinding a ton. If I can continue to win and get my roll to 50k-60k by December, make plans to move somewhere to play online poker for a while; give the professional poker player lifestyle a try, see if that can make me happy because what I'm doing now surely isn't.
