how do you maintain drive?

>25
>engineering science
>only second semester
>full time student, full time retail
>will to continue fading fast
>far behind in classes out of total negligence

i just want to do one good thing for humanity, then be comfortable and not worry about money for the rest of my life. i know engineering would guarantee me security for the rest of my life. but i'm only in it cause i'm good at math, i don't really have a passion for anything besides dicking around on the internet, and there's no career you can make off of that.

i just want to quit everything, but i know that's stupid. my whole nuclear family relies on my meager wages. how do you keep going?

Hey man, I've been there. I persevered through uni and then took off overseas to escape the bubble that was my life. It's been tough at times but I don't regret it in the slightest.

In terms of your studies, it's just a matter of pushing through. I'd recommend going part time for a while if you can afford it but if not, what can you do except maybe take up a reduced study load if you don't mind extending your time at university a bit? It's a matter of how long you can maintain burning the candle at both ends, as it stands.

i'd like to take a break, but then i'd completely fall behind and i don't think i could catch up again. it'd probably be for the best if i did only take one course at a time, but then i get reduced financial aid.

you had that trip planned for after university? how did that go?

Hell, man. We should have a one-of-these-threads general since it's so common around here.
I'm in a similar boat, btw:

>no aspirations in life that don't make me feel guilty and egotistical
>second to last semester pre-med student
>almost 30 y.o.
>behind in studies out of sheer negligence (i didn't show up to classes during whole semesters)
>studying just in order to get more money
>work part time
>have gf but don't really care much about her
>live with parents for the time being

I cannot bring myself to give the slightest bit of a fuck about my studies or work (used to, then I realized fucking company keeps 75% of my paycheck), but I cannot imagine what I would rather do instead.

Halp.
