Right now I’m teaching myself Calc 2. But honestly it kind of seems like a waste of time.
Truth be told, I am way better at just building random projects and teaching myself useful skills. Projects for example I can spend 10+ hours a day glued to a screen until I learn something. With math? Well let’s just say doing infinite series problems all day doesn’t give me the same satisfaction. This math stuff to me seems like a huge drill. My business, my Ebike, my LTX project, and more was something school never taught me anything about. I’ve taught myself everything from running a business to PCB design to 3D printing. I have consistently made the most progress (personally and professionally) doing something that I did myself rather than focusing on schoolwork.
School just doesn’t work so well for some people, and I’m one of them. I have met successful people (in all sorts of fields) who have completely unrelated degrees to what they are doing now so there’s evidence that being self-taught can work.
I am considering turning my attention to other things. I want to build a DIY Battery Management system using an Arduino MEGA. Employers are going to care a lot more about a project like that than just saying I taught myself calculus on a resume.
What to do now?
