I am a student at a Canadian university taking civil engineering. Ever since I could remember, I've always wanted to be an engineer. I designed tree houses, dams and cabins, and built them myself, as a teenager. I've got a 4.0 gpa, without ever really studying, half way through second year. I'm about to finish second year and I think my grades will be about the same. I hate it. Every minute I'm in class or looking at a textbook or hearing about what I'll be doing in the field; I fucking hate it. A lot of the time I wish I was just taking a trade or some shit. Or joining the coast guard. I know I can finish uni no problem, the schoolwork itself I've always found easy. But I don't want to spend the rest of my life at a desk. Help me /adv/, I've never posted here but I don't know who to turn to.

The first two years are quite boring. I'd take a look at the third year and fourth year classes, since those will be more specialized to your interests. See if you can sit in on one of them.

If you wish you were just taking a trade or something else. Why the fuck not? There's nothing wrong with taking on a trade. Just really think if that's what you'd rather be doing or if it's something you're just going to because it's "literally anything else" compared to what you're doing to yourself now.
But if it actually sounds attractive to you, why not go for it?

Impossible with my class schedule. Even if i skipped a class to make it in on one, I'd feel super awkward because of the low class sizes in my program's upper year classes.

That is exactly what has been going through my mind. My problem is, I know I can make a ton of money if I finish, and right now I am very deep in debt (shout out to nova scotia). Could I make then money to get out of that with a community college course right now?
