Don't Rush Into It.
I got a degree with high honors in the standard four years and have been aimlessly wandering since. A college degree does not mean success!
I realized I hated what I was training for (I am a law school dropout) and after "wasting" so much money (still repaying) I find it hard to have the confidence to venture forward again. Stuck in a holding pattern. For over 6 years now I have been. Shamed from my past mistakes and scared at the emotional and monetary costs of making more. Even though every day that I wait I am costing myself more wasted life. ....Aaaargh! Frustrated! :)
I envy people that went to college, found something they enjoyed, and have made a successful life out of it.
Nothing seems to hold my interest for 3 months, let alone a lifetime.
And college is a very expensive way to find out that you don't like something.
That's my sad truth for today.
