You could learn to brew beer. I'm pretty sure UNC Asheville has the program.

10 years late.

Strange question to ask on the huddle, but my son is in college now...which I and his mother are paying for. So I'll answer the question as if this were my kid and I having the conversation you are going to have at some point:

My Son: I don't think I want to stay in school, it's hard and I just don't have any interest in anything...what do you think I should do (translated can I come home)

Me: You are a grown man and you have the right to make any decision you choose, just be aware that with choices there are consequences (translated: hell no, you can't come home and I am using your college money to fix up my media room)

My Son: My friends have dropped out and done quite well for themselves, maybe I can be successful as well (translated please let me come home)

Me: Really, what's your definition of successful? Do any of they own their own homes, Have a steady, stable job, pay their own bills, own their cars, or do they spend all of their money on things they like beer, women, clothes, etc...(translated the only way you are coming home is paying your own way)

My Son: uh, I guess so.. translated what does this have to do with me coming home

Me: Well, in order for you to be considered successful, you need to be sure that you are capable of providing all of those things, so how do you plan on doing that? translated, you better be prepared to take care of yourself if you drop out.

My Son: I don't know, I really don't have a plan

The jist of what I am saying here is you don't have a plan now and are in school still under the care of your parents. Should you choose to leave school you will still not have a plan but more than likely will not be under the care of your parents. This will present to you a whole series of problems you are not yet prepared to handle. Stay your azz in school, grow up and stop whining..you have an opportunity, take advantage of it

College is like a 4 year vacation.....you just don't realize it until you are 30. Who doesn't like vacation?

where else can you get drunk 4-5 nights a week routinely yet no one suggests you have a problem....I mean it's college. Also, college is the prime era of your life to enjoy young hot firm females.

Drop out.

Just make sure you practice the following phrases:

1. Would you like fries with that?

2. Do you have a rewards card?

3. Would you like to sign up for our rewards program?

If you work really hard you might get to use these:

1. The schedule is already set. You'll have to find someone who isn't going to the prom to swap with you.

2. I cant give everyone Christmas day off.

3. Corporate doesn't allow me to pay more than minimum wage for your position.

Stay in school and finish a degree, any degree.

Give up now and it's going to be a tough road ahead of you with more people making decisions for your life than you would ever imagine. A degree helps you to decide your worth. No degree means that someone else will do it for you.

this idea of getting "any degree" is kind of funny to me.. I have so many friends with a poo job, taking orders, and barely bringing home money because they went out and "got any degree"..

unless you were born to be an order taker, the corporate rug in which your boss wipes his shoes, then yeah, any degree will do..

it's a tough road regardless.. especially if you align yourself to be expendable in the corporate world and the economy goes to poo.. you then have it worse than many other people...

You could end up like Ryan Reynolds in Waiting though. That could be fun.

Hey man I feel for you. I'm just now in the last couple months of my senior year at a fairly prestigious University in the Northeast and let me tell you... there were times when I wanted to quit and the stress was wearing my down almost daily. I declared my major in Political Science the last week of my sophomore year and am so glad to have made the right choice. The professors here have really opened my eyes to a lot of things and I am now in the process of applying to six graduate schools for Homeland Security or International Relations. I've always wanted to serve my country and this way I can use my education and analytical skills to make a difference and aid the federal government and military with intelligence.

Talk to your advisor at school. Weigh ALL of your options. I wish you the best, I would not rule out transferring schools either, maybe the programs at your current college just aren't for you and there are some out there that are suitable, I can promise that.

Yes! Waste of time and money to teach lies. Only fun part is the atmosphere, mingling with your fellow peers and peeretes.

If you guys are having trouble dealing with the "stress of school", you are in for a RUDE AWAKENING in the real world.

College is not even close to the stress in the real world. You go to class for about 4 hours a day. Try working for 12 hours....then coming home and having to deal with sick kids....a mortgage...car payments...yard work...etc.

College is by far the most relaxing and enjoyable time that you will have until you retire.
