I don't want to go to college anymore?
So... I'm a Freshman at a private college. I'm in winter quarter right now and I already dislike college. I feel that most of the work is bullshit and I realize that right now I'm taking my prerequisites but still. The university is very nice, I like the class sizes, most of the professors aren't too bad, but I don't believe that the best way to learn is through preparing students for an exam. I love learning, I got a 3.7 GPA in high school and a 3.7 fall quarter of college but still... I'm tired of studying and I'm tired of this on going pressure on students to know everything about the material because then it just leads to memorization instead of actually learning something. I feel like my life is being wasted away because all I do is study, do homework, and sleep. I don't have any friends because I'm too focused on studying. The only time that I do socialize is on weekends and it's with my boyfriend. I'm getting depressed and feel like college is becoming pointless, even though I know that you need college to "get a good job." I understand that, but I feel like I'm missing something out of my life... Like purpose and self accomplishment. Yeah, if I go through college then I've accomplished a degree.. Yeah, a little piece of paper that says that I'm "educated" and that I've spent 4 years of my life slaving away to become an "acceptable member of society." I have all this pressure because out of all of my older siblings, only one of them finished college and because I'm the last one, I feel like I'm the prize and last hope of my parents; the kid who does things right and finishes what they've started. I'm burned out with the whole idea of studying for most of your life to get a single piece of document allowing me a place in society. I know you're not suppose to get things handed to you, and I don't expect that. I just want actual meaning in my life other than than this bullshit that they've been shoving down your throat since you were born. Anyone else feeling this way? How do you guys deal with it or have dealt with it?
