There are two types of drop-outs. There are the high school drop-outs that end up working at your local fast food chain because they just couldn’t handle it. And then there are your college drop-outs that just can’t be handled.
I can list some famous college drop-outs that ended up being super successful, but I won’t. That’s not what I’m getting at.
Doesn’t matter if you’re a Harvard drop-out or a community college drop-out. Honestly, all universities are the same. The professors are the same. (Don’t care how many awards they win or medals they receive, because I strongly believe that there is no correlation between how personally acclaimed you are and how well you teach). If anything the student population is the best indicator because you are constantly competing with your peers. But people are always out to get you, most of the time your own professor. Group projects never truly imitate real life project teams. I will never use these formulas again, because they are outdated by at least decades.
I’m sick of worrying about my grades. I want to worry about my rent. I’m sick of a lot of things because I’m ungrateful and grumpy. I succumb easily to emotions because I get too easily upset by what I perceive as incompetence because I think I’m competent.
And that’s not I know I’m probably incompetent. And that is why I am still in school. Because I need to prove to someone, especially myself, that I am worth something. Because if I really believed in myself, I wouldn’t be here right now. I wouldn’t be ranting on Tumblr.
