Edit : become a chemical engineer and make pills in the pharmaceutical industry
i went for a few days and didnt like it...i had no idea what i wanted to do, so i didnt waste my time/money. Im doing alright for myself right now but i think i am a more responsible person now (6 years later) I think i could get an education to advance my career. But i still dont know what i would want to do. maybe one day ill figure it out.
ryan thanks for the chemical engineer suggestion. read about that for a little bit and that is very interesting. i was planning on taking classes in the summer but now idk. im starting to like the idea of a chemical engineer. seems like alot more and more broad options for a career.
being responsible and not giving up, being able to follow through with something you start says a lot about a person. even if your going for lib arts, get the paper, it'll prove to any prospective employer that you can accomplish some hard tasks and that you'll see it through to the end.
also, i believe that college teaches you the balance of being able to party and get your shit done vs. partying too hard and failing at life. imo...
have as much fun as you possibly can!!! i cant wait to start hitting these books, once that starts i can start smoking again.
College is definitely not pointless. Personally I can't stand that attitude. Not saying that you are like this, but many of the people who think that its pointless are so damn arrogant and are not usually as smart as they think they are. Guess I've just been soured by people who think school is pointless or a waste of time because a few of my extended family members are like that, and sometimes I want to strangle them when they talk about college (or school and teachers in general).
But I digress; I'm a junior now at a university, getting my degree in Journalism with a minor in Creative Writing. I've been to like 5 different schools, and have switched majors about three times. My first few years of college did not go well. I spent way too much time partying and just didn't go to class. My very first semester of school (first time living away from home) I think I literally went to class for two weeks and then stopped going. After trying a few more semesters I eventually dropped out of college because I kept falling into my old bad habits. I then got a job working full-time on the graveyard shift at a casino. I did this for about two years and it really made me realize how much my life would suck if I had to keep doing that for the rest of it. So I decided to go back to school, and have since maintained at least a 3.5 GPA. So yeah, it took me a while to figure things out, but once I did, its been smooth sailing and I can't imagine myself doing anything else.
