Throwing in the towell on school

My symptoms and voices are just terrible lately. I am going to have to drop my class. It kind of breaks my heart, because I was set to graduate this year.

It’s an online biology class and I had absolutely NO idea it would be so difficult, on top of my symptoms.

Oh well. So it goes. I guess there’s always next year/next semester. I’ll be online tonight if anyone want to chat (on here).

Take care friends. :v:

Sorry you’re having a rough time. You’ll get there eventually. Like you said, there’s always next semester.

No kidding bro. I thought it would be easy, man was I naïve. Hindsight really is 20/20.

I wish I would’ve signed up for a more easy type science class. “Intro to gardening and collecting tullips?”

Exactly. The really sucky part is all the gi bill money I’ll have to pay back. It’s times like these where sobriety is the hardest.

I think I’m gonna throw in the towel on poetry. I’ll still write it but I wanna focus on writing more books. It’s good I’m a writing major and not a poetry or music major :v:

You have to pay it back if you don’t graduate?

Well I might be able to get out of it I can have my pdoc prove to the Va that my circumstance prevented me from going to school.

That is a BS rule. You did your service, you should get free college. That is supposed to be the deal. I hope you can get out of it.

I took more then 12 years off from school, 1995-2009. I went back and I actually got better grades then I did before. I’m 55 years old and I need four more classes for my degree, I’m taking an online class right now. I just wanted to show what is possible to you. I got diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia in 1980 at age 19.

That’s cool @77nick77 I got a lot of respect for you and your perseverance. Thank you for the positivity.

Take care :v:

PS - What are you getting your degree in?

Humanities…

Cool. I am thinking about majoring in philosophy or history after I take a long break.

Good luck Chrishasheart. I dropped out of college and it wasn’t the end if the world. It still hurt a bit though!

Back my first go at college life. The second semester I got a 0.0 gpa. I was able to have the pdoc write the school and have the grade dismissed from my transcript, I didn’t get my money back of course but I’m so thankful my parents made me follow through and do it because I couldn’t have done anything by myself at that time without hand holding I was so fragile.

Thank you @everhopeful I am going to take a long break from school. Then I am going to find an online college that offers the degree I want.

I am not sure where you’re located, but if you know of any credible online school in the U.S. please let me know. Take care :v:

I understand @Skims that’s great that you’re back in school and following your passions.

If you’re going with online classes, try to take ones offered by a real college. The for-profit colleges are almost all under fire lately. If it has a commercial, don’t trust it.

Haha! Thank you. Yeah the phoenix U’s and the Kaplan’s I am staying away from. There are some local universities here that I think offer an online philosophy/social science degree.

I know Arizona state university also offers an online religious studies degree. But their application fee is really high. :confused:
