I am proud of where I am, but I feel like i can still do more. I bought my first brand new car off the lot when I was 19, had a near death incident 19 days later (Not related to the car). I bought my condo with a 20% cash down payment at 21, I married my wife at 22. Obviously I have had to work my ass off to get where I am, and sometimes I feel like I missed out on my late teenage/early 20's. I feel like I have made and then lost more friends than I can count. Sometimes I feel like I have kicked ass in these 23 years, but at other times I feel like so much has been missed out on. So yes I am proud of where I am, even if I don't know where the fuck that is sometimes :).

Being 19 - and soon entering my 20s, I'm pretty happy with what I've accomplished thus far in my life. Coronavirus put a wrench in the majority of my near-future plans (e.g. acquiring my own place, buying a new car) but I'm still attending college in a very lucrative CS program, which puts me ahead of a large majority of the population of the world from a sheer education perspective. Seeing footage from third-world countries and areas that are less well off than my own really shows how good I have life. My upcoming months may be uncertain with my internship plans in disarray, but I'm confident everything will work out fine regardless.

Am I proud of where I stand? No idea. I almost feel like that implicates that I did everything by myself -- which I did not. Countless hours of help from friends and professors got me here, so it feels wrong to label it all on me, all I brought to the table was hours to spare and a very strong mental fixation on technology. Am I content with where I am right now? Certainly.

I feel the exact same as pb when he says the coronavirus put a wrench in all plans.

Everything that I did got cancelled, and I never thought i'd say it, but I miss school. I barely see my friends and do things with them. All my classes got delayed and I am just now finishing up CNA.

Am I glad where I stand? Yes, I have great plans for the future for college and career for the rest of my life in the medical field. I enjoy helping people. The only thing I don't like about my life is that I pass girls off all the time and don't give them the time of day.

i would say i could be more proud of where i am

i only started my job in january and i havent made as much as i wanted to. i work my ass off most of the time but im not that happy with the outcome, i mean i guess its good for a highschool job but i just dont want to be a failure if you know what i mean. i haven't bought my own car yet and i think that's something everyone shouldve done by now. i also havent been proud of what ive done school wise because of my attitude towards school work, i make excuses to not to the work but its just something i should work on with myself. overall, these are all things i could fix myself! i just need to get motivated to do it, and thats what i plan to do.

but for now, ill keep working as hard as i can to make sure everything turns out for me great in the future! hopefully i'll be able to buy a car soon and hopefully get a new pc. am i happy where i stand? i think so... i'm doing the best i can and will continue to do it, hopefully after this virus things could look up for me!

I'm proud of what I have accomplished, however I am not proud of how little I have accomplished with the time that has been given to me.
