family that basically says you're going to be poor unless you goto college
to an extent that is true.
society nowadays wants you to have that paper.
to prove you're competent.
i don't agree nor disagree with this.
it's just the way it is.
What are your guys' experiences with school?
hated it, all of my time i spent at homework is shown at my steam account. (about 2000+ hours of counterstrike)
Did you go?
yeah i forced myself to go, just like you.
did you drop out and why?
yes i did.
because i F-ed up.
i smoked to much of something i can't mention here.
i was too immature and too lazy to do anything for school.
i had the mental capacity and all, i lacked drive.
I wake up every morning trying to figure out what I want in life
i did as well, still do sometimes.
but i need to tell you a little more about my lifestory.
i'm 23 at the moment btw.
i dropped out of school when i was 16.
i messed up THREE years in a row and dad decided to pull the (financial) plug.
i needed to pay for my own education if i ever wanted to go back to school.
so i got a fulltime job at 16.
spent 3 years of my life working and saving a nice buck.
then i went back to school.
about 3 weeks ago i finished my education and currently looking for a job.
so yeah, pretty much went through the same ordeal as you.
but the three years of fulltime working did it for me, it opened me eyes.
it thaught me a lot:
- work etiquette
- working in a team
- learning from your co-workers etc.
but it also showed me that THIS (working fulltime) isn't what i want right now.
so i went back to school.
because of my nephew being diagnosed with borderline i decided i wanted to be a healthcare worker.
so far i'm still enjoying it!
hope this helps a little!!
