Sorry you're feeling so frustrated, Herman. However, I did not go to college because I hated school even though I was a good student and regret that decision everyday. Just thinking of the things that I could be doing if I would have continued. Don't get me wrong, I love my life now and am happier than I've ever been (when my teenager is in a good mood), but sometimes I just feel that I had/have way more to offer.
So hang in there. You will have plenty, plenty, plenty of time to kick back at the end of the day, but if you don't stick it out you won't have a career...just a job.
Good luck to you friend.

See, I loved college, but I liked the other part. The academic part. Instead of going to class, I'd be chatting up the special reserves desk to get in to the rare books collection, and finding UT's acumulation of grimiores: Barrett's The Magus, or Remigius' Daemonolatrea. I'd spend hours lost in the law library looking at the "annotated" copy of the Warren report, or in the history stacks reading original galleys of Frank J. Dobie's Coronado's Children: Tales of Lost Mines and Buried Treasures of the Southwest.
The conversations with professors about suppressed research, or the construction of the pyramids, or anti-grav propulsion systems. Professors who first introduced me to Qabalah.
