A little woe is me, but mostly looking to be pointed in a direction

If you were 20, set to graduate in 3 years from an ok state school with a CS degree(Cybersecurity is my concentration) that you are getting paid 20k after tuition to go to and had ~200k in liquid assets from business ventures in high school. What would you do? I'm feeling a little depressed and slightly aimless, it took a lot to get here and I usually feel depressed once I've reached my goals.

That's quite the resume man. What type of business ventures?

I would look towards new goals, are you thinking tech or finance? Tech would be all over a profitable high school business (especially if you continue or build out a new one in college) but if you want to pivot to finance that is also an option. you may need to add some finance to your resume with an internship or two. As a sophomore you have lots of time, and even for the hyper-accelerated IB recruiting schedule you are on track.

It was a combination of day trading crypto and performing arbitrage to make %20-80 premiums. Nothing else I was doing at the time was as profitable or scalable so I went balls deep, It lead me to almost fail out of high school(I failed 9th grade), but I could afford to blow 3 grand on correspondence courses that would allow me to graduate on time and not care.

I really like fin-tech alot and was thinking about going for my masters(a long way away I know) in business analytics, so I could pivot to both. Once I can start taking CS courses next semester I'll probably get much more into tech again. My school has internship pipelines with local tech and finance firms, so just for more exposure I'm gonna try to explore that. Its good to know I have time.

Not sure if this is a humble brag or what but you need to sack up my guy if this is what gets you depressed. Go get a job is CS, put your money in an index fund and call it a life.

It's really not, I'm just very lonely and money doesn't buy me happiness anymore. I'm just trying to pick people's brains for a little bit of inspiration. I'm just very different from anyone I speak to and it becomes harder for me to relate to them. I went from crushing poverty and having to buy my own school lunch because my parents didn't want the government in their business and were living $20 between paychecks to having many times more assets then them and having extreme stability.
