I am 20 years old coursing the fifth semester of the law school (the career is ten semesters so I'm at the half of the way), but I hate this completely, I'm so sick of having to go every day to college, I hate the classes, I hate most of my classmates and most of my teachers, I'm just so sick of it, also I never put attention in class, I always sit in a corner and play Final Fantasy III or Pumpkins vs Monsters on my Ipod touch, I have excelent grades, almost at the end of every semester a friend borrow me all the class notes and I spend a couple of weeks studying and I get really good grades at final exams without a problem, but the school requires 80% of assistence, so I can't just go to the exams, so I have to wake up early every goddamn day, and go to college just to play with my Ipod at college, I'm so sick of this, and I don't know what to do.

Who cares if you're half way through. If you don't dig it dude, what the hell's the point?

You're wasting your time. Good, you figured out you don't like it. Now you can find something you're interested in. Go do a course on iPod games. Haha.

Don't waste your life doing shit shit.

the problem if even if I quit, I don't know then what to do, I don't know which other career would make me happy, before considering law I consider to study philosophy or history, beacuse I like both, but studying any of those in my country means dead by starving.

I also would want to pursue a music career, but I'm not enough good at music to aspire to that

Seriously though if nothings stopping you, it's not too late to change your major and study something you like doing. You're still young, you don't want to live life thinking what if.

Finish it. I'm halfway through Engineering, and its getting to me. But i'm going to get it done. The time might let me figure out something else to do, but even if I pursue that, i have a degree in something useful. Don't forget how important that can be...

I only play with my ipod becuase is mostly what I have at hand, also I used bring to school books about a lot of subjects, and I used I read them in classes, but this semester I ran out of books and of money for buying more,so my Ipod is my mainly way of distraction.

this is the way I used to think, I thought this career would give the economical resources to live well and to do the things that make me happy, but everyday is harder.

I never said it wasn't going to be harder.

If life were easy we would all have BA's.

I finaly figured out that I wanted to be a professional artist just a couple of years ago, I'm 45.
Life is about discovery, so go and discover what you want to do and what you are capable of doing. For instance, you said that you want to pursue a music career, but you're not enough good at music to aspire to that, so why don't you see if you can improve your musical abilities?
Remember, you don't have to be a virtuoso to be a professional musician, Sid Vicious couldn't even play and he managed it.

An alternative is to get into the music business from a different angle, for example, at the higher end of the music business, lawyers, as it turns out, are essential.

In all politeness, allow me to be blunt.

If parents, fear of your parents, or fear in general dictate your decisions in life then whatever happens, you deserve.

Free will, dude. Sucks, eh?
I walk the line between fantasy and reality. One is more fun, the other is where the food is.

lol. I went to Law School as well. Sometimes I feel the exact same way. I feel sorry for you that you're still enrolled. I just recently graduated from Law School. A piece of advice for you - you've already come this far, might as well finish it off and there's all sorts of other things you can do once you get out as I'm finding I can get into corporate compliance or City Trading etc...a professional legal qualification is still very versatile but you may be looked down upon - not because you're not good enough but a lot of people may deem you overqualified if you look for other things which is what I've experienced.

EDIT: Wait a minute - you're 20 years old - which means you can't be in Law School . I think you're confusing a college law course with Law School proper and in which case, that's not your career at all and you can always get into something else unlike someone like me who actually enrolled and completed Law School proper - and finds it more difficult to change career paths.

listen to this dude, he speaks the truth.

I was studying electrical engineering for a year until I realised that I would either kill myself, or continue studying it. It wasn't too hard or anything, I just hated everything about it.

Plus, you're fucking 20, dude, you have no fucking career. You're barely starting out in life. You can change any and everything, so just quit law school and choose something you like, bro.

FFIII is on the Ipod touch?!

i mean yeah, do something else.

Persevere, finish it! You don't have to practice when you finish, but having a legal background is one of the most useful things anyone could ever have, and it's a good fail safe. Plus, you could do pretty much anything with a law degree. I'm keen on Journalism. You don't want to end up 5 years from now having no job, no qualifications, and regretting giving up a pretty sweet opportunity. You're obviously smart enough. And as for waking up early, get used to it imo. I hate it too, but it's all part of growing up.

Stick with it and it will be worth it. Dropping out when you've come this far would be really silly.

Stop being a pussy, I can think of hundreds of people who have to work their ass off just to get a pass because their course wasn't right for them. If you can play Final Fantasy and still get top grades then you're sorted.
#21
Normally I'd say change what you're doing, but the problem isn't your course. It sounds like that whatever you do, as soon as it got to the stage where you had to put effort in, you'd start to hate it.

Maybe if you paid attention, actually tried at it, you might enjoy it more. Of course you're going to hate it if you just sit in a corner playing on your iPod. You get out what you put in. If you're throwing yourself into it and still hate it, then quit and find something that does make you want to put the effort in.

This. Could it be that you're so good at it that attending all classes gets boring? That could mean a quite good professional career in the future, but might still suck to get the degree done.
#24
Man up and pay attention in class. You never know, maybe you'll like it. You may even you like some of your fellow students or teachers if you participate and socialise with them...

I've just finished three years of uni, the only people who weren't liked in class were the ones who sat in the corner and did nothing. Everyone else, including the lecturers got along great. If you put nothing in, you'll get nothing out.


Finish the course, you'll have a decent qualification to your name, then you can find something to do properly. Maybe even think about what you'd like to do before you graduate to save yourself from graduating and having nothing to do.

And, just a general point, not strictly relevant here. It's no good learning nothing until the exam then cramming for a couple of weeks. I'll bet you don't remember the stuff even a week later. Do yourself a favour, and learn it all properly first time. It'll be a great help for a time when you don't have a stack of books to look something up in.

At least you can afford to go there, but I think 10 semesters is too long.
#27
I think you should just say eff it and go do something you want to do....becuase it is not only the next 5 semesters of suck it would be the rest of your life suck....so nut up and start over...before it is tooo late.....
I haz gotten gud
#28
Well if you were smart, like me, you would have spent your teenage years inside learning how to make beautiful music, instead of wasting them going out and partying and getting head. Now I'm 20 years old and have a quadrillion dollars and can buy all the cinnamon rolls I want.

well, the money is not a problem, unlike the united states, the best university in my country is free and public, I only spend money for some books and for transport.


yeah 5 years is too long, but that's becuase I will not only get a bachelor in law, but also a specialization in law.
