Am I right in saying most teens today hate college?
Not the friend bits and not the parties, but the real effort of getting up every morning and the studying – aka; psychologically copy and pasting endless spurts of information.
I definitely hated it even though my course didn’t involve sitting, listening and inhaling knowledge. Performing arts is purely physical and my genuine passion in life so that’s what I was doing. Yet I still despised the idea of attending education, it seemed endless.
You can’t blame teenagers for being ‘moody’, and you certainly shouldn’t define it as ‘hormones’ – because it isn’t! Of course we are going to feel shit if we have to endure constant early mornings and data cramming for 14 years straight. Well I couldn’t cope with it anyway.
So here is my tip for surviving college;
My life immediately became better! I successfully acquired a job and earned what I needed. I was rewarded with the love of my life and that kick started a new, fun and exciting life. I started again and did what made me happy, and in return achieved the utmost comfort with my own life.
Yes, it’s the law to attend education until the age of 18. But it is somewhat overlooked if you make an effort to do something else.
I had to quit college, I didn’t want to be stuck in a place where I was constantly sad, persistently uncomfortable. I cut everyone off, avoided all the people I was associated with and hit the reset button.
Be happy; this hasty and drastic change in my life gave me new friends, new challenges and – most importantly – a new love and thirst for life.
Do what makes you the best person you can be.
Ps. Your old life will come back to you, and I have experienced it comes back looking better than it was before.
