I go back to college in September, it's going to be my 2nd year studying Animal Care. That means I can't watch as much anime that I'm watching now.

I have 2 weeks, but it's less school and more a certificate to be able to be a Police Dispatcher.

I start in about a month. going into senior year for high but I know what I want to do and need to get some good marks this year


Your senior year has zero relation to your college career. The only thing good grades will get you is scholarships. In order to get into the higher end colleges you would have to have straight A's in a top end high school for all four years.

I hear what you are saying but I don't live in the states and it is different here in Canada. Only your grade 12 and 11(only a bit) matter for school and depending if you go to university or college you could even have a 70% average and get in

I don't understand why people do this. It's a waste of money... people who take this route only end up with a Arts & Science degree in some random major just to graduate. My cousin did this and she is still a waitress making minimum wage. I'm still in college and I have already received a job offer making $45 an hour because my major is in demand. (Computer Science)

well, not everyone knows what they want to do in life...unfortunately, my brother is doing the same thing right now. if it wasn't for my mom, he wouldn't even be in college.

That is exactly what is happening. People who have parents forcing them to go to college so they go undeclared as long as they can. Then when they have an idea they see all the classes they SHOULD have taken previously and say "screw that!" and just pick the easiest major to graduate. Then they are a college graduate waitress (in my cousin's case.)

Hahaha, no need to worry my friend. I still have more general ed to get out of the way so it's not like i'm wasting money taking random classes that are going to end up worthless to me. And I already know what it is I want to do, which is become a music producer. Only problem with that is there's no degree that magically guarantees you a job since its more about spending your own personal time developing critical listening skills and building your own basic studio to mix and master your own tracks.

Well, that's not undecided, you have a goal. Most people going undecided have no idea what they want to do, and the funny thing is they don't think about what they really want to do. They think time will give them the answer, but it won't. So, that's good.
