    A short article about the responsible use of self-improvement. This is something I struggle a lot with and I like his approach to it.
    Read it. Its only a 5min read. Short and sweet.

    A great article about how gaming can replace work for some young adults. Very long but interesting.

    Hi Mathew,
    great that you found something your passionate about. I can speak from personal experience that it isn't smart to just study because it is the sensible thing to do. I rue a little that I didn't explore my passions before university. Otherwise I would most like didn't spend so much time there and instead learned a craft I want ot eb great in. I found Computer science right now and my Engineering degree will help me to follow that path but I could have prevented myself from a lot of self doubt and agony if I just searched for a proper path before Hand. So good job in beeing proactive. I leave some Inspiration here

    Hi my polish companion,
    How are you doing lately? I hope you don't beat yourself up with failing that exam. It sucks and ofcourse you have to take responsibility for it, but that's it. I watched some old wc3 streams too butI procrastinate my thesis mainly with learning programming .

    Nerdy is the new sexy Yeah I had some c foundations from University but it is still a lot of work. In my (limited) experience it is important to focus your efforts and your plan seems reasonable. I will atleast have a masters degree in Engineering which will help me a bit at getting a Job. We'll see if I am successful :). Feel free to message me if you want to look deeper in the c/c++/Assembler direction. I have accumulated some of the needed ressources.
    What is your opinion do MOOC's with certificates?

    Hey good job on the restart. It was a great step for me to stop gaming last year. I am close (1month) to finishing my masters in chemical engineering and I am pretty sure that I wouldn't have made it if I would still be playing games and watching streams all the time. I am sure it will help you in ways you don't even anticipate right now.
     I am fascinated about software development and did learn a lot about c++ and programming in general at the last year. You seem to be like a classical computer nerd (which I mean only positively). Why don't you search for a job in this area of expertise. You seems to be totally capable of bieing atleast an Administrator. I am searching for an entry level job in software development right now and atleast in my area (south Germany) there are a lot of admin/devops/developer jobs available. Are you still going to school or is something else holding you back?
     Security is definitely on my to study list to but computers are such a big topic so i need first to get my fundamentals on OS and Networking straight before I can go into that .

    I don't think that you are crazy, I don't know you good enough. I didn't think a lot about the negative implication of that suggestion and it didn't even came to my mind that it could offend you with that comment if I am quite honest. I am sorry that I offended you. I read what you wrote since I left before I wrote my comment. I agree with you that analyzing yourself is a great step. I just don't think that you have to be "crazy" to go to a psychologist. It is helpfull to share your thoughts with someone on a regular basis especially if it is someone objective. In my opinion it is totally ok to use a psychiatrist for this if you feel psychologically down. And you wrote by yourself that you considering to see a shrink but are shying away from the idea because you would feel challenged by someone trying to "treat" you.
     I just tend to be a bit hasty with that suggestion because I have friends who greatly benefited from going to a psychiatrist and so many people shy away for it because they are ashamed of labelling themselves mentally ill. And exactly because I don't know you I went wiht the "better safe then sorry" attitude  . I repeat for emphasize that it I didnt' want to imply that you are crazy or have mental problems (there is no way for me knowing if this assumption would be true). But in the same way I can't know if you  don't have such problems. 
    I also have to admit there is a great possibility that I am wrong in the assumption that trying out going to a psychologist can only have positive or neutral outcomes. If I think a harder about the subject it could definitely have bad consequenced to go to a shrink. It could  leave you feeling ill/crazy even if you don't have any problems. This is definitely a thing to consider (which I haven't at my comment).
    I just saw you struggling and wanted to point out that professional treatment is something to consider (because so many people shy away from it so fast not because it is the only or the best option). I hope you are working your stuff out. Best of luck to you. And thank you for welcoming me back. Really appreciated that you thought of that even if I offended you wiht ym suggestion
