Who on here is in college right now. Do you honestly think it is worth the money to go or would you have rather done something else other than that.

People who havent gone to college, do you think it would have been better to go to college or are you happy right now?

If you do decide to go to college I would recommend a community college it is over half the cost of a university, you are getting taught the same thing for 2 years and gives you a chance to see what you want to do in life before getting into debt for the rest of your life.

This is what I have thought about doing really. The local community college is about 700 a semester. I think that is a somewhat good price.

I graduated from college one year ago, and im still unemployed with no income. I'm diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder and PTSD, i live with aniexy, depression and paronoia every single day and therefore it's hard to get a job even though i graduated with good grades. I took a loan at age 18 when i was in college and i have been living on that loan for 2 years now but all that money is spent by now. I'm still trying to find a job though so i can move out as quickly as possible and also pay off my loan and live my own **** up life but it's hard being around other people sometimes and therefore it's also hard to get a job where you don't have to see other people 24/7, but im getting there i hope. I go to psychiatric meetings and stuff where i get help.

Anyway If you don't suffer from any mental illness / illnesses, if you're not born with a silver spoon in your mouth and if you're not employed before you go into college i strongly recommend you go to college and while you're there... Have a hard think about your life and your future, and the things you want and set up a reasonable plan for how to get there and by the time you graduate you will be a few steps closer to that goal, whatever it might be. + Just mind your own business and focus on what you want your future to be like, Personally for the most part, I was almost never on the classes listening to the teacher, but when I was, I was usually drunk or high with my feets on the table, ignorant and didn't listen much. I lived in my own world and nothing really matters. I had a special kinda attitude, we live and we die and tomorrow is never promised so i do whatever the fu*k i wanna do... whatever happens, happens it is what it is. None of this have benefit me in any way, I still have kinda the same attitude but more under control because im trying to learn and focus on the future.

I'm in college and at the moment, I enjoy studying rather than working. There's absolutely nothing wrong with not going to college and dedicating yourself to working and being a working joe, so long as you keep yourself active and being a responsible member of society.

Now, if you were to decide to not go to college and not work either, that's a definite problem. You wouldn't be applying yourself to becoming a contributing part of society and you'd probably end up living with your parents or a family member, leeching off of their hard work.

If you haven't graduated from high school yet or have graduated and still have no clue what to do: take this second semester (and hopefully your last semester of school) to think about exactly what you want to do. You're going to want to make a pros/cons list of both situations: working or going to college.

You could also do both and while you won't be able to have a full-time job while going to college (due to the lack of time you'd have to be able to study and deal with your classwork), you can still have a part-time job and acquire some experience in the work field.

If you do decide to go to college, make sure you pick a field of study that you deeply WANT to study and don't do like me (and most college students) who join a field of study, whether it's pressure from family members or "I've always been told I make money here", and then regret starting there and you either quit college or try to switch, which can be a slightly annoying process depending on the institution. Pick a career you would LOVE to study.

I hope this helps even a little bit. Good luck.

My parents are paying for me to go to college so for me it's worth it.
