I quit school because...
In high school I was an honors student with an above 4 GPA. I felt it was my duty to get a proper education and to make a living doing what I loved.

I busted my ass and felt accomplished for the most part. I was given a decent scholarship at a central Indiana school, a very large reputable one.

I couldn't be more excited.

I moved out on my own and started to make a living on my own while going to school. Loans were the majority of my college tuition payment and the scholarship helped a bit with books and things .

I went through my first semester rather mindlessly. In fact, I don't remember too much of it. I began smoking cannabis regularly and went through a massive awakening.

I went from brainwashed liberal to freedom carrying libertarian. From somewhat financially stable to on the rocks.

I woke up. I became spiritually involved. I started seeing what was truly going on, and that it was much bigger than anything I could even imagine.

I then resented school. I saw the venomous snakes running the place. The obvious liberal bias on every matter, and succumbing to the powers of the over powerful government, even in a republican heavy Indiana.

What made me quit?

It was the teacher. I'm not afraid to post his name. It was rick ranucci.

On the first day of semester 2, rick made it known he was a public defender, and a socialist.

He made fun of those who questioned and said they were afraid of truth and filing their lives with their own truths. He brought up 9/11 and said people were mentally sick to think our government was capable of something so vile.

I sent him an email after only attending 2 or 3 of his "Logic" course periods, a course required of all freshman. The syllabus called for a restructuring of how it was we were thinking.

I said I didn't want to take this course and I wanted to withdraw.

They denied my request because it was a required course and gave me a failing grade.

They revoked my scholarship.

They put me on academic probation.

And that is where it now stands.

I won't return.

It feels wrong even thinking about.

I want to live, not follow the course of someone else's ways.

It's just sad... Sad to see the young and old sitting in the classroom eating up the bullshit...

I went from academic genius to failure. At least by the numbers.

To myself, the only self that can make decisions forme, I made the right choice. I choose a free mind living through the struggles of life and enlightenment.

My soul tells me, and any of you who follow your intuition, that this test is the final test. The test of life.

No test from a book can ever match that.

College is horrible.

It is constant lies and brainwashing.

After community college I simply refuse to sit though that sit for 4 years.

I hear you on that brother; I am another awakened soul here reppin the 317. Blazin blunts and experiencing psychedelics to expand my awareness knowledge and conciousness is my tool. It is definitely amazing all sheeple here in the community, that are blinded and stuck in the system. They gossip about celebrities, reality tv, and fake news and politics; when they absolutely have no idea what is really going on in the world. If you believe in a higher being or a God you gotta know that everyone on this earth whether you believe it or not has a purpose or goal in life. Your blessed with knowledge saying you gotta 4.0 GPA, why not continue and get that degree, and do something to change the world for the better. Who gives a fuck what people think man, its your world. Dont let a class ruin your life. Im stuck at Ivy Tech wishing to have a 4.0 GPA. lol

Sorry to hear about your experience. I too had that same experience. But I knew how they thought and what to write and how answer their questions. Never could you speak in class the truth.
I remember I was in a Masters level Woman's Study Course. I was the first man to take the class as it was a newer offering. I was surrounded by frothing at the mouth, man hating militant lesbians. I was attacked one night in an estrogen pit full of blind hatred for men, but the instructor, a grey haired bull dyke came to my rescue. Because on my papers and tests I spoke her language. I was a miracle man. The one man in a million.

But in the end they confer upon you a Diploma, that says you have all rights and honors to practice.....Your chosen profession. And you can practice on your terms and beliefs.

I encourage you to take his class again. Make an A and get yours and practice any way you like!

Re: I quit school because...
Sad, but lucky for you to have it happen before you were there any longer. Pay off your loans and figure out a way to get training or a degree without going into debt.

All schools are not the same, now that you know what to look for, choose more wisely.

You could move to where you want to attend--say a more free thinking state like vermont. And get a job, save some money and start classes at a community college till you finish the first two years and then transfer to a better school for your last two.

College is not a good deal if you have to pay back BIG loans.

Don't even think of giving up--look into the facts about how many kids change schools--you are just altering your path a bit--perfectly ok, and will work out better in the long run.

Prolly a good thing with whats coming down the pike. After the election, he'll get serious about taking our guns and implementing the police state. A lot of folks will prefer to stay home and a lot of business's will close down as a result. there will be very few decent paying jobs out there. I can't imagine being stuck with tens of thousands in student debt and no jobs....

You're smart enough and you're already in.


Play their game, by their rules. That means break them carefully, just like they do.


Once you're ahead, THEN start rocking the boat. Don't wind up wasting your potential flipping burgers.


I'm with you, OP, but use their game against them. Repeat what they tell you to repeat knowing in your mind it's all bullshit.

Just go through it. Learn on your own on the side if you wish. Play their game. Get a job in the medical field where most of the knowledge has been rung through the scientific method. Get paid. Took me an A.A. and quitting halfway through getting my B.A. and changing majors to figure this out.

Well, I will return to school, but I'm thinking online.

Honestly a lot of what I've learned came from online

It's just a new medium. I think allowing me to learn in my own way would be much better. I know there is always bias and not everything you read is true, however reputable the sources may be.

How else would I learn online? Online is always sorting through knowledge of all angles. It is worldly knowledge.

I remember all angles of everything now. Very analytically.

I follow my intuition and let my soul guide me.

Re: I quit school because...
Mac I know your pain. I walked away from my master's degree not too long ago due to my adviser not doing his job. He would say it was an important topic, give me all the encouragement in the world, then belittle me behind my back and not help in any of the work. So I did it all myself and when I had to have him look over my chapters I got a "I don't have time for this." Exact quote

I waited an extra semester on him, paid out of pocket instead of the GTA position I was damned lucky to get, and got the same response when crunch time came. So I just walked away. Haven't talked to him or any of the other faculty there at all since.

I was not just a slacker either. I taught several labs, was representative to the student council, the topical honor society local chapter president, and even recommended for a national position. So when I walked, it was not an easy decision for me.

You are not alone in your experience though. I have heard of others do this because it was the right thing in their conscious to do. Things will be tough for you, but at the end of the day you have to ask yourself who you want to be, someone who thinks for themselves and refuses to be pushed and prodded like some cow, or just another student.

Obviously if you have the standing to get such accolades in the first place you have the capability of teaching yourself just as our forefathers did: with books, time, and grit. Heck most of the college courses could easily be dissected and learned for the cost of a textbook (and even that can be negated if you buy used or get it through a library). You just have to make lists of questions that you want to answer by your self-education. Check the chapter glossaries for major theorems and concepts (anymore they make study guides to highlight these). If you get stuck somewhere, find a message board on the topic and post your question, what you've done to research it, and where you need some guidance. Most of the time you'll get decent responses and you will get people who will try to troll you (as happens anywhere sadly).

Genius is just a word, its what you do in this world that counts.
