I ask because I'm about to start an on campus internship that is only for the best, regarding graphic designers, web developers, and IT majors at my school. Normally you have to pass a certain assessment.

Due to a mistake my school made this was my only available option, very last minute, and the dean of my school performed an over ride on my transcript to get me in, so I could still graduate this may. I'm extremely uneasy about this but I'm going to have to give it my all. This is easily going to be one of the hardest things I've ever had to do..


So pit tell me your biggest challenge, I could really use the motivation...
Ibanez RG1550 Prestige
Schecter C1 Hellraiser

Peavey 6505+ 112 combo

ISP Decimator
MXR M234 Analog Chorus
DeltaLab Digital Delay
Planet Waves Tuner Pedal

Doing well in college.


I lost sight of motivation and just fucked up my last semester. Taking a break, going back with new focus and direction.

But good luck with your shit man, that sounds like a blessing in disguise if you ask me.

Actually I agree with Blake1221. So far college has been my biggest challenge. there have been multiple times when I just wanted to say **** it and quit. I'm trying to keep pushing through though.

I'm meant to be going on World Challenge next year. Raising around £5000 is hard for a 15 year old trying to juggle school, friends, girls, guitar, sport and sleep, never mind the month I'll be spending rough in the Himalayas. But it's pretty easy in comparison to other situations.

Roughest challenge I've ever had to go through is going through what I'm going through right now. My girlfriend has been having been having weird mental breakdowns over the last couple of months, and I'm doing my best to be there for her - do what I can, but I'm no freaking shrink that's for sure... She's going to go and start seeking some professional help but I think I'm losing her </3

Played in a musical with some pros/semi-pros for 8 nights and was the only one who couldn't read music properly. Nailed it all like a baws.

Also this. It was a similar situation, but they were great at helping me learn things and get the parts down. Really improved my guitar playing and performing abilities.

Yup. My first semester of college was horrid by my standards. This one's been better, but I can still improve. Grades, social life, everything. First step for me will be not just immediately flipping on the xbox when I get downtime. Unfortunately, that's kinda how my roommate and I hang out, but we can find other shit to do.

When you coast through high school and still manage a 3.5 GPA, transitioning to college is hard.

I'm sick of your tomfoolery.
Why do you keep posting that?

Log off, and go do something else for a while. Come back when you decide to contribute something.


As for me, I guess moving away from the city when I started high school was hard. Also I moved out of home a year ago and I've just finished my first year of uni.

But I don't think anything has really happened to me that I'd consider a 'biggest challenge'. I wish something challenging would happen to me though.

I did the same thing 7 years ago- you'll manage it, and you'll love it.

asking a girl out a while ago

I've grown since then but before i was extremely unconfident, self-loathing, perpetually sad and somewhat socially awkward. It didn't work out the way i wanted but the whole experience of wanting to be with her forced me to challenge my own insecurities, so like i said, i've grown it.

Hmm, that's interesting.

I'm kind of in a similar position to how you were.

This has inspired me to ask out a random girl, in order to be rejected.

Ranger School... it sucked and I had to do two of the phases twice each, but it was worth it


My respect for you has just gone through the roof. From what I've read about Ranger School, I don't know many UGers who'd be able to get through it in the first place, let alone having to do some bits multiple times.

Convincing the old landlord to give us an extra month, then marketing my mom's work to galleries (which I didn't do very well, but got her contacts every time), while working to get my dad out of jail (to be fair, I didn't actually do this and my mom borrowed cash for it) and getting some money for plane tickets and doing my best to give a proper goodbye to all my friends before I left. The end goal was very, very shitty. C'est la vie I guess.
