Just an FYI, the OP was started in September of 2012. I hope the OP comes back to post an update, but the last post from her on this thread was in 2012.

As someone with a Master's Degree and who excelled at college, don't feel like a loser. Unless you're going to be a doctor or something or are a brilliant individual you won't get far, even with a college degree.

College is not for everyone. If you dont feel like going, then dont go.

so you started and have gone to college a few years and want to quit? to me, that's pathetic. college is easy and if you cant finish it, that doesn't say very good things about your capacities. but that doesn't make you evil or even a bad person. im sure you are aware of that, so by asking if you are evil you are looking for an answer you know you will get. just finish it.

do whatever. it's all a lie that you need a college degree to do anything.

College is a great asset to have, but if you don't have it in you right now.. instead of moping and feeling bad for yourself, make yourself marketable and pick up skills. Don't be a lifer at a restaurant and spend your money on booze, find ways to make money, invest a get where you want to be.

How can it be bad or evil? Are people without degrees bad people?

I think upper-level classes tend to do this. The fun and novelty of college wears off, and you are getting into harder classes, all in the same general subject. It gets to be a chore just to reach the finish line.

Are you living in 2014!? Maybe if you're an older person thats been working without a degree for several decades. But if you are young, it is hard to find a decent paying job without a degree. It happens but it's not the norm anymore. Many jobs that never required a degree before, now do. A bachelors is the new high school diploma. Sure, people are happy working at Wal Mart or McDonald's but a lot of people don't want to make minimum wage for the rest of their lives.

This is true. I am 23 and in college and I've had classmates that are in their early 30s. They said they planned on taking a short break from school but things got in the way. They got married, had babies etc. They never got to go back until now in their 30s. I would rather just get it done and over with. I don't want to be in college in my 30s.

You may be under the confused period of life. You gotta figure out what you want to pursuit in the future.
