Back to school

1 Name: Anonymous : 2018-08-26 13:02
It's about that time! What are your goals and fall backs for the school year?
For me i's just to hurry up and be done with this crap; going in on year 6 of college, and going to my third one because the second school I didn't study and was too lazy ot motivate myself. One thing that I'm not excited about is that I'm moving in today which is great, because living at home is a drain, but I'm a senior ad they got me living in the sophmore building. I don't have a roommate nor a kitchen and the latter of these sucks and the former is actually pretty sweet. I'm going to talk with the residence hall people to see if I can get a new solo place. ALso this school is a christian one so I can't really do anything like have sex or party (not like those two happen often, but like heated seats I like the option). Aside from those gripes though, I'm excited!

I've piled on a lot of stuff this year, I'm taking some tough classes and I'm also managing a club. My bare minimum goal is to pass, but ideally I'd like to stop being such of a shut in and maybe get a gf or a bf.

There's also the matter that I'm way behind on my graduation schedule (my psychological disorders make taking a "normal" classload pretty much impossible for me) and it feels like I don't deserve to be here, but hey I'll deal with this stuff as it comes.

One thing I'm actually looking forward to is my russian language class, the 2 semesters that I've taken have been really enjoyable, hopefully this one is too!

Is anyone here joining/part of any interesting school clubs?

I recently made a new website and my goals are to work more on my website, finish a group programming project with people, a website for a small company that will pay me for web dev, work on some of my other unfinished programming projects, put all my repos on github, get a new job at the company my friend works at (he encouraged me to apply for an opening and will give me a recommendation), and get medical care for sleep problems. And I guess a more general goal is to survive and not drop classes or fail anything.

I'm also going back to the gym with one of my friends too. He wants me to go on a trip with him to another country, but it's very expensive. I've traveled with him before, but I can't afford it this time. Also, my new roommates smoke a lot of weed, so I hope they don't get me in trouble. They've already set off the fire alarm due to smoking but thankfully managed to play it off and avoid getting in trouble.

I'm also way behind on graduation, but it's good to know I'm not the only one.

I'm in a computer science-related club.

Gonna be trying to get a new part time job at a restaurant since the old garage where I worked at went belly-up recently. I'd have to pay more attention to personal hygiene if I'm gonna work at a fancy joint, though. I'm a little worried.

Hygiene shouldn't be much of a worry, just wash your ass, brush your teeth, and use deodorant.

School is such a waste of time.

Give up on school.

You'll gain time.

As a NEET, you can invest yourself completely in anything that interests you.

You gain the skills to teach yourself anything you need to know.

Terrible advice. You can't be a NEET forever. You're just going to make life harder for yourself when you have to get a job later.

Yeah but who's going to finance that lifestyle?

Balancing a full time job with school is difficult, but I'm somehow making it. Not sure how long I can hold on, though.

I'll be graduating in the next year or so and decided to try visiting my university's career fair today. It felt extremely dehumanizing and pointless. Why do people attend these things if companies aren't even going to glance at your resume and then tell you to apply online? They feel like cultural relics considering most of the information you're expected to solicit from the company representatives can be found nowadays on Glassdoor, or generally by googling some. Does anyone have a perspective on this that explains why it might be worth it to attend? It seems like it might be easier to sit at home filling out online applications and sending resumes.

I'm really stressed about classes. I have an audition for a piano class tomorrow and I haven't been able to practice in a month due to items being misplaced in a recent move. On top of that, I still have to get my measles immunization forms in so that I can actually register for said class. Financial aid is being disbursed tomorrow, but I'm not sure I'll get the full amount because I'm not currently full-time due to not being yet registered for the music course. It's all really confusing to me and it's hard for me to stay on top of that. This upcoming week is also full of "school kick off" events that I really want to go to. I don't want to become one of those students who just goes to class and then goes home. I want to take advantage of being a student at a big university. It's just all kind of overwhelming to keep track of.

Typically, they'll expose you to companies you might not have known before. If you're lucky the stands will have people from the department you'd like to work in, and the opportunity to chat to them is really useful for submitting an application at a later point. If it's just HR/marketing randoms there give them a thanks and head to the next stand.

Good luck with the audition! If the financial aid is from the uni you can likely get in touch with them once you are full time to sort it.

Starting my first year of college with a part time job that I got right before starting. Worried that I'm taking too much in too fast after doing nothing all summer, but I hope I'll be fine.

College's started up on late August and midterms are just a couple weeks away. I have been contemplating suicide a lot, because hey - I feel that an incompetent dimwit like me is better off dead so I can give my spot to someone who's better deserving of higher education.

Do it.

Your spot wouldnt belong to you if that were the case. Sit, breathe, and think; youre far better off here - able to gain competency - than not.
