I finally joined uni. With all of its fucking bureaucracy. But I love the feel I get being there with people I know wants same stuff as mine. I picked Math.
It's equally ambitious and crazy as 1) My previous school didn't prepare me at all, (not even limits for fuck's sake) 2) it has given me an antidepressant boost, but I'm also a person that yes goes on anyway but at the first difficulty I second guess my own ability in first place to overcome what's ahead (so, depressive rebound). 3) I have dyscalculia and adhd. Lucky me, not the kind of dyscalculia that makes you unable to grasp logic, it's more like I can't do calculations in my head and 8x7 is HARDER to me than explain graph theory or some stuff about riemannian geometry.
What did you all feel when you went to university? Because I'm feeling a lot ignorant, but worse, stupid, very stupid.
Any advice?

    Dude, I feel stupid on a daily basis. But at the end of each semester I get to sit and marvel at how much I've learnt, despite having felt the entire semester was one long struggle. The joys of uni! Congrats and good luck on your journey.

    Watch out for that depressive rebound, you should start preparing for it ahead of time.
    And always remember: not knowing something doesn't make you stupid. You just have to learn it yet.
