Sounds like you need a man in your life.

I'm not doing well in school, at all. My mom threatened to move me in with my father if I didn't bring my grades up - not only that but I have financial aid and I'm pretty sure they'll take it away for good this time when they see how badly I've done this time. Thing is, I don't want to be in school. I want to be a radio host and sing in a band. My biggest fear is that not working out, and me living out on the streets. At the same time, I'm NOT motivated enough to do this..and I think it's too late. I've been trying to succeed in school for about 2 years now and it's failed both times. I really don't want to move away from my mom but I feel like it's just a maternal thing and I'll have to do it eventually, anyway. I'm already 20 years old.

A friend has asked me to come along and with him to Florida, get a job out there, and be his roommate. I could go with him but again, I'm scared..what should I do?

You're a young person and you have a long life ahead of you so their's no need to rush anything. I'm on financial aid also, but they wont take it away just because you're failing ( at least that's how it is in NYC ) Usually if you drop out, they take it away and also force you to pay the money the gave you back. You can still be a radio host, and sing in a band, but since you're already two years in, why not get your associates degree and stop right there? Try to live out your dreams and if it doesn't work out at least you have that to fall back on. And if you even want to go back to college, the most you would have to do is 2 more years o__o; College isn't for everyone, and no one has the right to force you to go; just make sure you have a back up plan, because life is hard now. And getting jobs is even harder.

Why not go to Florida with him in the summer, just to test it out and see how it goes o__o?

If you or anyone else wants to talk or need more "advice" just message me :D

You're a very giving person. I have a pell grant and according to what I've read, the chances are low that I'd have to pay anything back. My not wanting to take these classes and have a "successful" job is due to the fact that I think materialism is generally bullshit - I don't want to get wrapped up in money problems when I know they're the least of my personal worries. I've asked the friend if he's still going and told him I would get a small job and that I wouldn't use many utilities often, to which he agreed to when he asked me the first time - he's like the opposite of me and is training to be a head chef. I'm waiting on a response.

I'm still thinking but this is feeling more and more right. I'll use this summer to fully decide Thank you.

SaturdayAir is wise. I would just like to add that sometimes it is just finding what makes you happy. If music is what excites you then look into going to a school that offers careers in music or radio. Can you see yourself teaching music? I know a lot of music teachers who play in bands on the weekends but teach lessons to pay the bills. Radio I don't know much about but I would suggest that do some grunt work, call some radio stations and some technical schools that offer training in radio programming and ask lots of questions. In other words, phone calls and questions are free.

You might have to save up for it but like SaturdayAir said, there's no rush and try to have a plan and a back-up plan. Also understand that it is a parent's job to worry and I would hope that they would! Your mom might never "approve" of what your plans are. Depending on your relationship with your mom and dad (whomever you feel safer with), I would recommend you gather your facts and present your plan to them. Regardless of the outcome, at least in your mind you will have told them what you plan to do. I think a parent's biggest fear (if they are caring parents) is having their son or daughter just up and disappear for good.

That's my 2 cents (coming from an old guy).

Nope, not weird at all. Being obsessed with stuff is like, THE thing that teenage girls do. Although your choice in obsession is a little weird o.0
What would I know, I'm a 50 year old dude.

It's not normal, but it's not bad as long as it doesn't involve periods of depression. A lot of teenagers do seem obsessed over a lot of stuff at random times, but most of it is just to fit in and look cool. Which isn't your case otherwise you wouldn't ask.

I have this problem not actually. I JUST WANT YOUR GUYS OPINION ON THIS. I mean.. Is this weird? I have these obsessions which only lasts a year and it changes every year. Lets start from 2008. In 2008 I was obsessed over WWE. HHH is my favourite wrestler still now. In 2009 after Michael Jackson died I became one of his die hard fans. I listened to his songs but never been this crazy after his death. My cousins teased me saying I was a necrophile! Then in 2010 I was all gaga over Brangelina! Angelina Jolie is my fav actress. In 2011 I became crazy for Johnny Depp and POTC.
Now I guess I'm getting this Beatlemania disease onto me. I just can't resist Paul Mccartney's cuteness! Offcoarse I meant the early sixties!
I also had these small obsession over the years like with the anime Blood Plus in 2008 and The Vampire Diaries in 2011. I haven't even finished the season 2 now I don't even bother to touch it! Heck I don't even listen to MJ anymore for two years after buying that last album.
Whats wrong with me?

THANK YOU


In my opinion, there is nothing emotionally, medically, or physically wrong with you. If you want, you can think of it more as a learning process of who you are rather than what may be wrong with you. You are human and just a teenager whose trying to find ways to deal with your racing hormones. Usually, the teenage phase is to like things that your friends do and take similar classes that your friends are enrolled in in order to fit in and feel like you also belong but sometimes you may find differences or something you didn't know about yourself and that is completely normal.

How does one (me) watch TV with friends when afraid of doomsday (try being read the Biblical flood at age 7...), having emotional meltdowns when hearing babies or children cry if heard too frequently, partially stabilized erotophobia as it depends on intensity and, lastly quick to anger when prejudiced jokes are made, but only shown by expression?

So I was out the other day walking around with the ants following me. I was thinking about them, thinking if they were hungry. I guess they were. Anyhow, I was walking with them following my lead and suddenly, BAM! I stepped on their house (the hole of the unbeknownst)! What should I do? I mean, I am basically a cripple right now. My arms are broken and the only reason why I can actually type this is because the Doctor helped me position my hands. I know, I can just ask the Doctor to position my hands to make an ant hole for the ants, but no can do. I mean, what if the Doctor thinks I am gay for him? Totally not right because I know my Doctor is married and it's just not fair to him nor his wife. Anyhow, I don't want to spend so much time with him anyway. So, how should I make a new nation for the ants? What should I do?!

I call this, The Duty of Ant Quest Town.

First of all you need to make a huge money donation to my bank account.

Put them out of their misery: Pour molten metal down the gape, then after it has cooled, dig it out. You'll have a cool 3D sculpture made from the ant colony you destroyed.

Here's how to do it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O05javlMW6k
