I am a complete failure.
« on: August 19, 2010, 06:08:09 AM »
Just an announcement really, about my personal life, some of you may or may not have known that I was attempting to attend a university to study Music...Well, my grades were worse than expected...and as a result, I will not be going...

I'm not quite sure what I want in this topic, in the way of replies, I mean sympathy is welcome, but not necessary, I guess you could even make fun of me if you wanted...I might join you...

But yeah, don't be surprised if I'm a little depressed or angry or...fuck, who knows for a while...Also this means I'll probably have to get a job...which means I might not be around 24/7 like usual, but I will try and get on.

You are a complete failure. Disregard that, you will stand up, fight and eventually overcome it because life is more fun this way.

One does not necessarily need to go to college to get a good job. On the other hand, you could always apply in other places. There's got to be a decent college out there that'll take you. The education system is fucked anyway. I mean, subjugating people to this scary accepted/rejected process seems a bit too harsh to me. If somebody wants a post-high-school education, I feel they're entitled to it and in a perfect world, the system would be legally obligated to let them in.

Don't give up so easily. Sure you'll need to get a job but you can handle it! The best way to get what you want in life is with determination and perseverance. Eventually, you'll arrive at your goal, as long as you keep trying. Your wants and needs are no less important than those of every other average person on the planet. Do you have friends to go to in times of crisis?

Just because you didn't make it into college, doesn't make you bottom of the barrel or anything. I think that in my country around 10-15% of the working population got a university degree. So which ever way you look at it, going to university means you're an elite. Not going to college doesn't mean that you are dumb or anything. It is simply a matter of perspective. The vast majority of the population doesn't go to college, but still manages to live everyday lives, by following a different sort of education or something along those lines. Like Chang said, there is more than likely a different educational path you can follow to accomplish your goals. There are more roads that lead to Rome.

Thanks, zeroin...I think a higher proportion of people go to university here...but I'm thinking now that maybe I was forced into applying to it anyway, by institutions...so I'm just getting my head straight.

All I really wonder is...Why do all proverb thingies mention Rome? It wasn't built in a day, and many roads lead to it? Well...that's good to know, I guess, if you wanted to go there...on holiday  :lol:

It's true, JackO. It is a joke to suggest that schools can determine how much you are worth in society. Just look at lawyers, all that college and their worth is so little it's in the negative. :lol:

My only advice is to try and find a boss that isn't a douchebag. If he's cool and willing to talk freely with all his employees, maybe cover for you if something happens, then you'll actually have fun with that job. :)

You aren't a failure, dude. Uni isn't the be all and end all of life. Enjoy your vacation and above all, smile. 

Do you have friends to go to in times of crisis?

Aww wow, you guys are awesome. I'm definitely feeling more upbeat than I was, and I have my vacation to look forward to (Hotel has wifi, so I'll still be able to get onto the site \o/) but thanks again everyone for your nice words, they are appreciated.  :blushing:

Uhmm Serika... Just so you know, I'm in law school :glare:.

KILL THE LAWYER!  *gun

No, but seriously... all the work lawyers have to put in just to pass law school seems utterly wasted at times with certain clients... and then you have less scrupulous lawyers who do nothing but prop up those who shouldn't be propped up...  I mean, you may get a good lawyer here and there... (let's hope you're one of them, zero  :P )...


Well... we're fucked...

I was going to say bankers at first but changed my mind because someone might have replied saying he/she works in a bank. Guess i dodged one bullet and got hit with another. :death:

Anyway i was just trying to make a joke. Please don't think i would be rude to you in person just because you're in law school. :)
