    I've attended three different colleges. I just regret that none of them resulted in a degree. I fucked around my first couple of years and then could only go part time when I finally got serious. If I ever get the money and time, I'd like to finish.

    Unless you know out of high school what you want to do for the rest of your life college is a colossal waste of time and money.

    It was for me. I know a couple of kids who are graduating high school and they're getting apprenticeships. That would have been better for an unfocused dolt like me.

    Plus I really lost focus in high school after we did this job inventory test to see what careers we would be most suited for and I got "tile sorter" and "metal presser." My retardation had reared its ugly head.

    I'm one semester away from graduating with a degree in Urban Horticulture. I already have one in Liberal Studies.

    The first two years of college were a total waste for me. I had no direction and zero support from my academic advisor who was an old lady who was probably just counting down the days to retirement. I did get my degree but have I used it in any of my jobs? No. I still think of going to get my masters and maybe teaching but that is taking a big chance and also taking out a lot of loans.

    One of the things that keeps me from going back is group work. I hate that.

    I've been passed over lots in my field due to no degree. Most of the promotions I've gotten are because prior to the promotion, I took classes that fit that job.
