Dear Students, here is some advice on life.

When you are in your mid twenties. You have a lot of time to reflect on life. I have been doing it for the last 1.5 years and there are some thoughts that I wish to share. I am not experienced enough to write a book (actually maybe I am ..) but I do know that there has to be someone who has to stand up and say "Dude this is bullshit, life is not pretty."

Here are my advices to you if you are just out of school.

Life does not get easier after 10th or 12th, it will be only hard. And very much so.
This is the biggest lie your parents and well meaning friends and uncles will tell you. Life does not get easier. After 10th, you have to work on your 11th. It is hard and boring but it makes college easier. When you are in the 12th. Your life is going to only get shit. Besides the thought of trying hard not to be a virgin, you have the added pressure of trying to appear cool by smoking, grade swapping and getting into a university that doesn't get your uncles asking, "Where the heck is that?". Don't smoke. You need willpower to quit.

Then there is college.
These will be the best times of your life. You get laid, drunk, high and sometimes thrown out. Don't get thrown out. Stick in there, don't be anal about your studies, but good grades count. Ask those that have to come up with 10k reasons as to why they didn't study. In the end it's because of 2 reasons. You had something so much more time consuming and amazing that you didn't study. Or you were lazy. For me it was the former.

Ok so you are out of college now wtf kageman?
First step get money. Without money, son, you can't do squat. It's liberating to open a bank account and see money roll in. Use it wisely. Learn about stocks, investments and the sit at home blog and make money bimbos who tell you how to lead a life of sloth and make money while you earn. Seriously, stfu and get down to writing what it is you want to do in life.

Trust me, this is the most important part of the post. Sit down and write the 10 most important things you want to achieve in life before you are 40. And if the first one is getting laid, then you need help. And it's not far off, the place is called Amsterdam.

And then after this post. There's only thing that needs to be done. Read this interview. If it changes your life then let me know what it did exactly... I'm still searching.

Before 40? I'd have thought it was more like before 20 or something... but then, I'm over the hill :o

You people are perverts. So many other nuggets of wisdom, everyone had to get the get laid part highlighted.
