I failed an exam today and I feel hopeless. I don’t think I’ll be able to bring my grade up in order to pass this class. Because of this, I’ll be a year behind in my program. I don’t even know if I want to continue in this program or if it’s even for me. I’m scared to explain to my parents because they expected me to graduate in 4 years but I don’t think it’s even possible to anymore.
I feel like I’m having an existential crisis as well. I didn’t research careers well enough when going to college, I kind of picked a major out of the convenience of job security rather than personal preference. Whenever I try studying, the material doesn’t interest me and I’d waste time staring at the ceiling and thinking about less important things. I feel so lost.

Well friend you and me are a lot alike in that regard. When I was 18 I went off to college in a different state. it was going all right but I felt like I was wasting my time I wasn’t taking classes that pertained to what I wanted to do and it really was a real low point for me. I got back home on break and I decided not to go back to college and right now I am currently sitting at 3 years still unsure about what I want to do. today I decided to turn down a job that would have paid well but I didn’t think that I would enjoy it and I really think that that is the most important thing that someone can consider when getting a new career.this fall I want to go back to school and tomorrow I think I’m going to talk to someone about getting classes scheduled because every time I walk through Kroger and I see all the new school supplies I’m itching to get back into it and learn something do something worthwhile. honestly if you’re able to my advice would be to back out now while your debt is still low and figure out what you want to do. I I moved out and I’m currently living on my own at some starting job and it’s giving me the time to think about what I want to do I went originally to school for genetics and biology. And I really think that I want to do something along those lines. I don’t know if I want to invest 12 plus years of my life to get a doctorate like I originally wanted to but I think that’s becoming more and more okay with me. I grew up needing to be perfect I was the star child a+ student that you know and then when you hit the real world it’s a big Cliff that you fall off of. I hope the best for you and if you need to talk about anything any further reach out please!
