I don't get lonely being superior to normalcy. Sometimes I think I am trapped in a world of people who want to suppress me, but that doesn't feel lonely. Then again, I am also completely incapable of love and empathy, so I have an unfair advantage...

Heh. I do the same thing, wondering if people really understand me when I'm talking. I sometimes mentor people in engineering, actually just recently I was teaching a bunch of people electrical safety and of course one of them had to test my safety tactic by sticking a knife in the outlet... and then in the fuse box... and of course it was supposedly my fault for teaching them technicality instead of the difference between good ideas and bad ideas. Hey who cares, it worked, the person was completely unharmed because they did what I said... But people usually don't know what I'm talking about. I hate having to explain the same thing ten times.

For me the loneliness is a mixed bag, it's not the kind of lonely like "I'm all by myself and sad" but the lonely like "It's so hard to find someone who can keep up with me, even those who understand or at least try to don't fully get it, though I appreciate their attempt." There just aren't enough people in this world I can fully discuss concepts, ideas, as hairbrained as some may be, and plans with. You get it when it comes to that, which I'm glad of. Others try, and I value those who do but, in the end they normally end up going "Huh, what?"

And I know that feeling, I can't tell you how often I go "Fuckit, I'll do it myself, just stay by in case something goes wrong and a call to 911 is needed!" for the most part, that has become the extent of me asking others for help these days. Least the guy didn't get fried and it worked, but obviously the guy lacked a bit of common sense. I have a rule, I explain it twice, maybe three if clarification is needed, if they don't get it by then, they need to get the hell out my way before they cause some kind of accident or get my temper flared.

Yeah, I know what you mean there. Sometimes I will be discussing my ideas to improve the efficiency of a certain machine design at work and a fully licensed, experienced engineer will ask me to slow down and explain what I'm talking about! That's the problem with savantism, my brain skips steps and jumps right to the answer and normal people can't keep up... I think you would know what that's like.

I wish it were legal to give cyanide to stupid people...

For some of them I felt some connections in similar or exact thoughts and knowledge. And to do this, I'm not going to say it took guts but it is an honor to know you like this, now.

Reading this, I found myself slightly jealous of your motivation and dedication. :)

Don't be jealous, in pain is no way to live. Just kinda got to the point where I went "I hurt like hell, it's not going away, I can either be miserable and moan bout it or push through and live." and let's jus' say a sub-par existence ain't my style.

At least having lived like that certainly doesn't make you a lazy person. Most days I'm too fed up to even do homework anymore.

Here's a chuckle for ya, back when I was in school, from 8th grade up I never did my homework, if I was even in the class to get the assignments to begin with! Figures, all my dedication, and I skipped school til they expelled me! Eh, I learned more with independent study anyways XD

Really? Phew, someone who understands! Lol, I'm seriously considering being a mostly self taught artist myself after college. Seems that I've gotta learn at my own pace or I'll start losing enthusiasm. XD

There's nothing wrong with being self taught. I've worked as a freelance graphic designer since I was 18, was making decent money for a bit too until my health failed me. Now I'm shifting to just a 3D artist and I'm completely self taught. It can be done, but to do so takes a lot of work and a little more time with some things, then again on the flip side it can take less time with other things. The main thing that matters however, is experience, because you'll always improve and learn with experience. . . .and I'm rambling, my apologies.

No, no! This is actually advice I've been needing for a while now to tell you the truth. I'm not that much older then you were when you started so that tells me I still have plenty of time to get my skills sharpened. I'd love to spend hours improving myself not because of pressure from grades, but because I really want to and that certainly seems to be what was going on with you.

That's exactly what was going on with me, I loved art, I still love art, it is my passion, my gift. That in an of itself can give a drive that grades cannot, learning under pressure it kinda, it doesn't have the best results. You do 2D digital if I remember correctly eh? There's a lot of resources, information and tips out there for 2Digital artists so, actually, independent study would be a very doable option for ya which would allow you to do it on your time, but still have no problems finding information, tips, tricks and techniques for when you get stuck. You'd likely be able to learn it faster than I did with 3D. (7 years and I'm still learning!)

Also, you always have time, one is never too old to learn, though you are right in that prime age group to start focusing on a trade/artistic skill. Listen to me talking like I'm a lot older when I'm only 23 ++Facepalms++ I gotta stop doing that!

There were a number of things on yours (you know which ones) that would be essentially the same on mine, so I picked other stuff to try to not duplicate similar answers. O.o
