Wasting Four Years. . . .

I'm a Senior now, and I feel as if I have wasted my time. I was always supposted to be following the path of my other family members, but yet I sit in class and wonder, "What is going on?" I look forward to going to work more than college. It began well and all my first two years, but now, I don't look forward to the thirty-minute drive every Tuesday and Thursday.

It's not that I don't want to learn - I want to learn everything that will make me a better person. I cram like crazy, and then put down what I think the professor wants to hear on the test. Why do I need to know what Spanish word to say when I want water? I work hard in my job, but in my classes, it is as if I do not care what happens . . . I just want to graduate and get into the work field.

everything has its beauty, but not everyone sees it.

I know how you feel...I am a sophomore, and can already feel that everything I know by the time I graduate could have been crammed in my head in less than a week. :/ <br />
College is about learning and maturing, in my opinion. I also feel like it leaves a since of "wastë" as well...which is why I am going to study abroad, learn another two languages fluently, and start my own company. lol. I like languages, and I already told myself that if I don't have at least 1 million dollars by the time I am 30 I will kill myself so...better get going now (I turned 20 a few months ago ^__^). Also, I dont even want to work for someone else anyways...I feel it is degrading that someone as hardworking and motivated as myself would work for someone else for the rest of my life...making less money, with less flexibility, cramped in an office during the best hours of the day and most days of the year. I am only getting the degree for credibility and because the scholarships allow me to get it and also pay food/rent . haha. XD my job will be for study abroad and business funding now!! But yes, I totally agree. Unfortunately, college is the new high school diploma.

same here. i just want to go work instead of go to school. i feel like i'm wasting my life in here taking these stupid *** classes that are all pretty much theory.<br />
i want to learn what i NEED to know to get my job done.<br />
i want to do something medical. i don't give a crap about plants or about chemistry. if there's chemistry i need to know, i think i'll learn it when i'm on the job.<br />
i just hate all this class ****.
