    Default Is this plan legit? PART 1

    Get a 3.1 GPA by end of last year in college, 3.0 gpa by end of next to last year in college summer semester by getting all 4s. (after this semester). (it's gonna take me 5-6 years to graduate, prob 6). Get an internship and emphasize by solid 4.0/near 4.0 record in the major core. Volunteer possibly. Or go get a master's by doing really well on GRE, and invest that stipend money to make more money. THEN get a job. or former, internship with maybe volunteering. Would anyone wanna hire an intern with no work experience? I suck at working retail. I don't wanna work for anyone and be micromanaged, and I don't wanna deal with bitch ass customers. I'm too neurotic. And I can't start a business because to start a business you need enormous amounts of capital, and interest is a major sin in my religion and I don't believe in it, and there are no Islamic banks in my area. and i cant invest cause you need capital. and i doubt i can invest my stipend.

    No, it's not "legit". It relies on you being able to control a lot of things you have no control over, while seeming like you're trying to put off as being "too neurotic" to avoid the low joe on the the totem pole stuff you WILL have to deal with. Youre plan reads like you're bricking yourself up into a corner of self fuflfilling prophecy...

    Why should I work in retail? customers and bosses should be nicer, and all people are gonna be autistic in a few decades anyway. and economic democracy is the future. and i dont see why we cant just automate this. long live the techno socialist revolution!

    Why ask a question if youre not open to answers? Long may the revolution live, long may it not. but your chances of survival go up with a job. Unless you're happy where you are. You seem like you probably are. La. Goodbye Kid.

    You need an entry level job that accommodates somewhat neurotic tendencies and so want to avoid dealing with a lot of people? You could work restocking shelves at night at a store or packing boxes to ship or something? Maybe there is something in manufacturing that involves routine that you could do? Or data entry.

    I think you mentioned saving money while on graduate school stipend pay, and I think that is probably unrealistic. It tends to be barely enough to get by.

    Because sucking it up and doing things we don’t want to is “ life 85”

    yes, indeed, i already found one i can do. i see your signature, and yes, animals have souls. im an animal lover myself. i talk to the birdies and doggos out of love for nature unless the doggo barks at me, but there are a lot of friendly dogs, too. most of the unfriendly dogs are those glued to the window. i also love cats.
