For me high school means lots of useless material that I should be learning but don't want to. I believe learning by myself is better than getting up early in the morning and go somewhere where I feel out of place. I am mostly alone and I take a look around me and all those other teenagers are so different from me. Their way of talking....the things they want to do...drink, party...all that seems senseless to me. I don't have good grades and don't aspire to have them. I don't need good grades and I don't need school. My parents don't understand that. I truly feel like dropping out. The things that truly need to be learned about life are not something that you could learn at school. I wake up every morning just to wake up to the same routine. warm up the seat....which is also the same one everyday...listen to what the teacher says...
and write in the same notebook stuff that probably I won't remember and won't have a use for. I can't socialize with most of the teenagers my age... Maybe I have grown up a bit too early....They always call me boring or a way too serious person...I really don't see sense in what they do...Probably I'd have to take all this **** and wait the years.

    Perhaps you should look into an online school. That way you can avoid the other children and focus on the school-work instead. Education is important, even though it never seems that way until after you have it. You don't want to be confined in life by having to work the type of jobs that will hire a drop-out. Sounds ok now, but when your 30 and your boss is 18 it won't be fun any more. Plus, I'm pretty sure you will want nice things. Cable tv, cell phone service, clothes, lights, heat, and food. Don't meanto sound all adult & naggish, but it is what it is. Take some time and think about things before you act on impulse. At least talk to some people that have dropped out before you do. If you can be content living like they do, then maybe your right. I doubt you'll like the options though.

    I was going to suggest the same thing, online schools. They are perfect. Just make sure you really finish high school. It seems like it's not needed, but as someone who dropped out and went back for a GED the material may not always be needed for your desired career but the need for the diploma is always there. Telling people I have a GED (which I had to have in order to go for my college degree) has been the most embarrassing part of my life. Putting in on paper that I am a quitter. It's a harsh smack in the face each and every time. There are also correspondence schools (which are mostly done online but do require you to send some materials through the mail. Look at all those options. High school isn't for everyone. It wasn't for me, but please don't just quit and go for a GED it really does effect your chances at employment, the way you feel about yourself, and the way anyone in your future (husband, children, in laws, ect) will feel about you.
