I wasn't meaning to offend you; I've been having to do that as well during this summer due to failure of not getting my own job. I'll have to do both when school starts up, so in the summer I can just relax after everything's done.

With college, I actually lose my alone time. Different circumstances, I suppose.

i'm going into my junior year in highschool and i go back in september.. i don't look forward to it. mostly because i'm going to a new school with thousands of kids in it while my old school had only around 200.

so basically i'm going to an urban school and i'm a rural kid :^O

i'm scared that i won't be able to make friends or cope with the stress of having so many people around me. i struggle in school and i'm missing 3 creds

I'm still at summer school at the moment, so this can't really apply to me xD.

I'm gonna be a senior in high school starting next week. I spent the whole summer studying my butt off for the SAT so I'm tired and I really don't want to go back right now.

I'm incredibly excited to start school this Monday! It will be my first semester as a theatre tech major.

The faculty is really nice and the curriculum seems really interesting. Got a great deal on all of my books, too!

No complaints here what so ever!

I wanted to go back to further my science degree.

but after seeing the $40,000 loan on my account... it demotivated me. I think I should pay this off first, as much as I love learning new things, I don't want to accrue $100000+... and never be able to pay it off.

I can't wait because I'll be spending this semester abroad in Japan! I'm just counting down the days until I leave. I went back in June and ever since I've been back, I've been in post-trip depression lol.

I'm really anxious because I'm going to be starting a slow-transition college program. Back in September, I ended up leaving my public high school (I was in tenth grade) and going to a virtual academy where I could take all of my classes online because my anxiety was extremely bad. I breezed through everything and was recommended to join the college program and get my associates degree before I turn 18.

I couldn't turn down the offer in fear of disappointing my family, so now I officially start my classes on the 25th of this month. I'm really nervous because this is my first time learning from a teacher that's not on a computer screen in a long time. I mean, what if I can't learn as well as I used to? What if I can't make any friends? I guess I can just hope for the best. :c


I did that exact same thing when I was your age, the get an associates while in high school bit. To be honest, it was pretty boring being the youngest person in every class. At the college I went to everybody was in their late 20s, had a job, and was really career focused. So, it was kinda hard to relate to them. Also, if your program is anything like what I did, DON'T TELL THEM THE SCHOOL PAYS FOR YOUR TUITION AND BOOKS. Oh man, everybody resented me for that haha. Like they didn't treat me that much different, but they were still had that air of, "Eff this kid and his free shit..."
You'll be fine, though . People aren't weird and cliquey in higher ed (in my experience), and if you end up wanting to be a quiet recluse in the corner of the class no one will bother you. For me, social stuff is way less of an aspect in college than it is in high school. That is if you want it to be.

I mostly don't want to ever attend college. The concept of being shackled with student dept is a powerful deterrent.

I'm going to be a freshman, and I'm kinda nervous because my crazy English honors teacher is making us present a project on the first day. Otherwise, I'm okay with going back to school, because at this point I'm bored and lonely with being at home all the time.
