Thanks everyone it means a lot to me. Quoting: Eazy D
I guess I don't give myself enough credit--I have been down on myself lately!!
My professor told me that I need to get more involved in school and there IS people who think like me.
The thing is, I really don't like school. I have never been a school person, always smart and whatever, but never, ever wanted to go to college. Working up the motivation to go participate in groups, meetings, and socialize with other students is foreign to me.
Don't get me wrong--I am a highly charismatic person, but I have always associated myself with the 'unambitious group'--most of my buddies are musicians, no one I hang out with goes to school, a lot of temptation with marijuana...ya know.
I'm almost 21. Maybe a new direction in my life is due?? Maybe that is why I have been kinda depressed lately (besides stupid girl drama lol). I'm taking a singing class next quarter for fun--I am a good musician but lack the skill to sing so hopefully it will get me outta my comfort zone ya know?
Enough about me...I just wanna be like you all and know how to cook, dehydrate, and live on my OWN!!!! I feel blocked from my dreams at this moment by focusing on classes.
Anyway, thanks again my dear friends I feel a bit better today than I have been lately.
Life has a way of leading you towards your dreams. Its up to you to realize it.
Living on your own is a great goal, and it will happen sooner or later, the question is can you be patient and get thru school or to a point in school where having to commit to a lot of work hours to afford being on your own is worth it.
You should seek out some of the other students in groups, there are all sorts of them and you will find people in each group who have other interests that may be simular to yours.
Both my girls were the same as you, although they got into study groups to make the workload easier, they made some really good friends with a few of them, they spend weekends together at clubs or the beach and other fun stuff, and one of my daughters met her boyfriend in a calculus study group.
It started out with studying and craming for tests, (daughter is not a good math student) and they have been together officially for about 7 months, but were friends for a year before that.
