I dropped out of school, tried to resign from my own website about college life, discovered I’m a hipster (only when the moon is full) and decided to start a webcomic based on my hipster adventures (coming as soon as I buy the domain name). Oh, I also got a promotion at work. Being a college drop out SUCKS.
At first I was like…
At first I was so relieved that I don’t have the pressure of school weighing on my already extremely sore shoulders. I didn’t have to wake up at 7am for my stupid 8am class. I didn’t have to go to classes I hated anymore or care about studying or getting good grades. I just didn’t have to care at all.
Then I was like…
I have no sense of time or anything. I never know what day it is and I feel old and overworked. I want to go back to school and have fun like I used to. I feel like I’ve been home for months and I’ve only been home for 2 weeks. I literally feel like I’m getting older just sitting here writing this. When I’m not working all I do is sleep and surf the internet. I have no friends other than the select few that actually want to hang out with me. All my friends are 2 hours away. Or 3 days away…or two states away or…you get the point.
There’s never anything fun to do but work.
This is the life of a college drop out
And I am bored. There’s really nothing to do around my house but clean and then it’s exhausting cleaning someone else’s mess but I do that every night at work and it’s just not fun, okay?
I mean, college isn’t for everyone, but it’s definitely for me. I cannot wait to get back so I actually have something of relevance to post on OLA. I mean, other than my controversial opinions, which don’t really sit well with some of the members of OLA. But if you want the truth, this is what you have to deal with in college and in the real world as well.
And Reality is ALWAYS going to be HARSH and CONTROVERSIAL.
But I understand why we shouldn’t be here. It makes sense to avoid issues that cause bad press, just like it makes sense that I’m bored all the time now.
