Ok here's my predicament /adv/ I'm 20 and was forced into 3 online college courses by my parents and I've got my first 2 assignments due tonight by midnight but I just can't find the strength to do them because I think college is pointless since literally every retard with half a brain can get a degree plus the obligatory $60k worth of debt here in America and I would rather do something else like go to a trade school but I know if I don't do my college assignments and drop out my parents will bitch at me because I'm not doing exactly what they want me to do. What do I do?
I probably should have phrased it better it's more that I look at the assignment and see that it requires over a page of writing and then I look at what people have already submitted and see that it's all a bunch of PC shit and then I just sit there and wonder why the fuck I'm even taking these classes when I'm incapable of writing something that long for something I don't believe in.
Im at the end of a similar problem. I went through teachers college to make my mom happy but I fucking hate teaching. I've told my folks that and they've slowly realised that I'm probably not going to pursue that career. Luckily my parents are pretty caring and supportive, which means I can now apply to jobs I'm actually interested in. I'm hoping to end up at a banking job. I guess what I'm trying to say is do what makes them happy, if they're paying for it even though you don't like it, whatever its not your debt. That's their call. You've voiced your opinion and displeasure. If they care about your opinion they'll hopefully see past it and you can do a career you enjoy.
>if they're paying for it even though you don't like it, whatever its not your debt.
They aren't paying for it though. They signed me up for a community college along with financial aid without my knowledge. So technically the government is paying for it.
At least with a trade school or a job I'd be doing something that I actually enjoy and not something that I'm being forced into.
