Ive been meaning for a while to write about this. basically this is just a article to show people who arn't going to a university like the majority of people there age around them will be doing, that there life isn't gunna go down the toilet because there not.
I look around me and it seems everythings telling me to go to uni, or its a good idea or its crucial for a sucsessful life. the tv, the news, advertisment and other people all around me. it seems that its unescapable. It tends to leave you feeling like that because your not going to uni your life is somehow gunna be worse and I think thats fucked up.
Im not usualy the sort of person to compare myself to others with things like this but after its shoved in your face constantly for years of school and college it becomes a problem. everyones telling you that uni is the good thing therefore not going would be the bad thing? - sounds kind of simplistic dosnt it? too simplistic.... I am never going to university simply because I feel I don't work well in that sort of learning enviroment. i never did in school, I did a little better in college but uni was just one step to far, if you feel the same then its perfectly normal and fine - stop listening to college teachers because there most likely only saying it to make their record look better - the more students they send to uni the better it looks on their cv - just remember that. and also remember that although you might not have any grades and you may be working a job you hate, this can be a long or short term thing and thats up to you
its sounds so lame but as long as your earning some sort of payment you can use that payment for something benefical. you can learn skills with that money, hobbies and travel. maybe even one of those skills could be your job too? then life wouldnt suck so much would it? - this is all possible
just because everyone else is telling you one thing it does not mean its for you. try not to compare yourself to people by grades on paper or the number of zeros on their paycheck because thats not what sucess is in this case. don't get to wound up with preparing for the future because its what we do now which matters. enjoy the moment and remember whats truly important in life and where your genuine prioties lie
Peace and thanksx
