So I hate college and I have no interest at all in continuing once the second semester rolls around. I would like to tell my mom this before I need to sign up for classes (sometime this week) but I'm not sure how to do it. Whenever my grades are brought up I'll just give a vague "They're fine" and she'll say something like "if you fail I'll kill you". While I don't believe the violent threats I do fear being tossed out on my ass with no job and little money. I'd like to let her know I have no interest in staying in school before I sign up for classes next year and she's blindsided by this semester's shitstorm. The only way I've been able to think of is just not being a bitch and saying it, but I'm looking for possibly an easier way to do so since I like having a place to live.

tl;dr how do I tell my mom college blows and avoid potential of being kicked out of my house

Is she hot?

I can't answer that for political and moral reasons.

And, no, I won't regret dropping out, I already know what I'm going to do.

edit: and it has nothing to do with the miltary (if that's what you were getting at with the mile running)

Would it help to change the degree you're pursuing? I've switched universities once and changed majors twice and it made school go from suck to great.

You will regret it when you learn that education is key for lots of monies.

Get a job, then tell her. That way, it will seem less like you're a whiny bitch-ass dropout who wants to live in her basement until she dies.

Grow up and start putting effort into school because without a degree there's a significantly higher chance you'll have a mediocre low-paying job which will make it difficult to support a family?
#18
Well I've kind of shot myself in the foot already. I hate what I'm taking (basic classes) so I rarely go/do the work, but I'm going to get a degree through community college at studio (kind of like interning I guess).

What makes you assume I want a family? Grow up and don't be a self righteous prick who tells people what's better for them.

Just tell her you're really not happy and you're going to regret it if you don't pursue said career plan you have in mind?
If she really wants whats best for you, she'll be like, 'mmkcoo'

I hope you're POSITIVE you want to do that though. I'm not saying you aren't, but just make sure that that's what you want to do.

None of them interest me. And I'm not paying out the asshole for out of state tuition just to go to a school that offers classes I want to take to find out I hate it just as much.

The 18 year old you may have different thoughts than the 30 year old you. Regardless, if that's really the case, what kind of standard of living do you expect to have? The more education you have the more money you will make, that's basically a fact of life.

You yourself said you didn't put effort into your core classes, so why not?

Sorry, but some people need a reality check and need to realize that life isn't always fine and dandy. Sometimes it takes effort to get what you want. My advice, take it or leave it, is to just monste rtruck it through college. Besides, after your freshman year you will start taking more interesting classes.
#31
Good luck.

Do what MightyAl suggested and get a half decent job first. That will soften the blow when you tell your family, as it shows you may be able to sustain yourself better.

Just be honest with her, tell her your plans, and I wish you luck. if you can succeed on your own back, by all means do it.

Finally, someone who agrees with me. I thought it would be obvious. People these days really do need reality checks.

Oh, I'm quite familiar that more education = more money, I just don't care. I'd rather make just enough for a shitty flat and food and enjoy my job than make tons of money and have to work from 9-5 doing something I can't stand.

In general, it is true.
However, if you're not getting on well with your education, sometimes it is better to drop out, and just start working.
There's always night schooling at whatnot if you feel the need to go back to education later, but there's no point in screwing it up now.

And generally, the higher paid jobs are usually the more enjoyable ones. Working in a run down factory is your idea of a job you'll enjoy?

I can't give you any more advice. Do whatever you want to do.

They can also be more stressful, will take up more of your life, and in many cases, eat your soul.

Yeah, nothing is more fun than sitting in an office seeing 20+ sick kids every day. Or being a lawyer. Or sitting in an office filing peoples taxes. Sounds pretty ****ing awesome to me.
