Gets more expensive, actually. Inflation as time passes, plus not being eligible for a few scholarships because you're not fresh out of high school, and of course any credits you previously earned disappear after a certain amount of time, so you'll waste plenty of time retaking classes....
Well that was a dumb move. Did you really think your friends would buy enough music to cover your income for the rest of your life?
I agree. I'm assuming you don't have millions of friends, let alone a thousand. You had no reason to drop out of college for such a low amount of people. YDI for what you did, but you should go after your friends for stealing it if you're that upset about it and think your life if fucked. You know which person bought it and put it up on the site, and you know which other ones stole it, go get em or stop bitching.
actually, that should be the other way round - "I'm assuming you don't have a thousand friends, let alone a million". It's like saying "I'm assuming you don't have even a thousand friends, so you're sure not going to have a million." Saying it the reverse doesn't even make sense.
If it was really that good, people would buy it, share site or not. Get a manager, play your ass off, and if you are good enough you'll sign with someone and have a nice shiny buss.
Risky dream. You tried to go all out, and pretty much lost everything in the process. My recommendation? Try local shows, like open-mic night at bars, and try to promote your album. That would have been a smart first step, but this is your only chance at success now since you went all out, so you might as well try that route. You can't just trust that your "friends" are going to promote your cd. You spent everything on those cds, so now you should go out and try to make it worth while.
