Hey good people,
So I'm currently at a well known college on a scholarship. A college that is almost out of my league.
Most of the people here seem to be from fairly rich backgrounds. At first it didn't phase me but after socializing a bit more over the past month, it is starting to affect me a bit. It just feels like I just don't fit in here.
I've been able to meet a few girls I can relate to but it seems like I have different perspective on life, as well as different priorities.
I am from a pretty rough background so I've been a bit care free, go with the flow type of person. As much as I like to have fun, I know how to prioritise my academics.
The social scene just seems like a whole different ball game here. You can just tell by the way I carry myself I just don't fit in here. I've been told I am pretty confident and fun guy to be around but it feels I'm constanlty being looked down upon because of who I am or where I come from. Picture 8 mile Eminem at Princeton or Harvard.
How I turn things around and still have fun?
The past year I've made excellent progress developing myself, I workout a lot, reading and just working my ass off to save some money.
