    Hi I'm 22 years old and sick of everything, i just want to get away from everything. I feel like we are brain washed to think that college degrees and working a job for the rest of your life is the only way to make it but i know there has to be another way to make it in life, "THIS CANT BE IT!" What are some good alternatives to college and working a job the rest of your life? I basically have no responsibilities at the moment, is there any type of programs or anything where i can be able to travel and make money or anything of that sorts as to where i can just get away from here or anything "Out of the box" That "normal"(9-5ers, college kids etc...) people don't do to make a living....

  • Professor failed me ?

    I am a 25 yr old girl in college. In the summer I had a philosophy class as a requirement, even though I am a psychology major.

    I am a 25 yr old girl in college. In the summer I had a philosophy class as a requirement, even though I am a psychology major. The class was fairly difficult for me being that I had not had a phi class before .. and there were a lot of assignments and papers. I showed up for both exams but did poorly and was late a few times. I thought I would receive a D, but to my surprise, the Prof gave me an F . I emailed him asking my grade and he replied saying that I could see it on the website and if I wanted to we could discuss it in his office. Should I meet with him and what should I tell him ? Is it okay that he failed me?

  • Do colleges force you to take remedial classes?

    If you take the placement test and don't do well, do colleges force you to take remedial classes? Or do they just tell you you need them/recommend you take them, but you have the choice to just go straight to a college level class?

Stanford has been my dream school, but my concern is that I may not be able to get in because of my low GPA. What can I do to get in? I understand that I may have to take additional courses to boost my GPA, but what other requirement will I have to meet to have a chance?

  • Am I a worthless loser for taking a year off from college to decide what I want?

    Best answer: You're not a "worthless loser" unless you sit around playing video games and scarfing down potato chips. Your first step is to get a job, if you don't have one already. Get out of the house and start working. Your dad looks at others who "take a year off from college" and sees lazy,... show more
    Best answer: You're not a "worthless loser" unless you sit around playing video games and scarfing down potato chips. Your first step is to get a job, if you don't have one already. Get out of the house and start working. Your dad looks at others who "take a year off from college" and sees lazy, idle, empty-headed slobs, and he doesn't want you to be one. Prove him wrong by getting busy. The second thing you should do is get a place of your own. The type of fool that your dad does not want you to become sponges off his parents while lying around the house. You need your own living space, not only because you want to be out from under your parents' feet, but also because you don't need to be bombarded constantly by criticism about your decisions. When you are on your own, supporting yourself, and making your own way in the world, nobody can logically call you a "worthless loser." You may never be able to convince your dad that you are making the right decision, but you can demonstrate to him that your choices do not reflect laziness or sloth.

  • What is your advice, regarding "Christian brainwashing" and "atheist indoctrination"?

    On one end, I have noticed that some websites talk about "atheist indoctrination", especially when people make schools more secular and teach about evolution. On the other end, I have seen the term "Christian brainwashing" in the Religion and Spirituality section, referring to the very existence of Christian schools influencing young people to follow the Christian religion instead of "waking up to reality in atheism". These two terms can best summarise the divisive attitude of the Religion and Spirituality section, which seems to become a ridiculous bar brawl between Christians and atheists. So, who do you think I should trust for this issue: those who accuse atheists of "indoctrination", or those who accuse Christians of "brainwashing"?

    Hello, I had my midterm exam coming up and i missed the last class we had where the prof told us about the location of the exam. Like any other student would i began to panic. I tried to log in to the course webite to check but i was having technical difficulties. I had no one in the class i knew that i could contact so as a LAST RESORT like any other student i emailed my professor with my question. Email 1: (me) Hello professor, I am a student in your lectures for class **** and i was wondering what the location and the time was for our upcoming midterm on Sunday. Thanks. Reply from prof: The information is posted under "Announcements" on the course website. Email 2 (me) Professor, Unfortunately i have been having technical problems with my student account and im not able to access the course website at this time. Reply from professor: "My mother died last night and I am feeling quite touchy.   I can't share with you how outraged I am at your inability to contact a classmate when you can't find information on your own. Your audacity at contacting your professor for info published weeks ago is mind boggling.   Please make contacts with classmates so you can catch up on what you missed.  We discussed the room location at class on Friday.   I am going to forget this email exchange and have copied the announcement below. fyi." ----- As a student i was always told that if i had any questions or anything i was unclear about i should contact my profs. That response was filled with so much anger i did not know what to do. Quite frankly i thought it was unprofessional for her to bring her personal matters into the mix. Yes im sorry your mother died i really am BUT HOW WAS I SUPPOSED TO KNOW. everyone i showed it to has told me, YOU HAVE TO FILE A COMPLAINT. that it was rude and unnecessary. Professors are not supposed to treat their students that way. They are not meant to invoke fear in their students. Now because of her i am genuinely cautious of asking anyon

I have blonde highlights and she told me that I have "fools" as parents and that hair dye is for the elderly people who wanna cover up their white hairs. I mean,the schools here does allow people to where whatever they want as long as they dont wear something with offensive words. Im 12 and my socials teacher talks about this alot for some reason as if she thinks theres a problem with it.

    So I m wanting to go to college in another state, but I graduated early (I m 16). My parents wouldn t be willing to move considering how much they have in the state we currently live in. I don t have relatives in other states, which would mean I have to move in campus or live on my own. Would it be illegal to go there on my own with them knowing? Or do I have to get an emancipation? What if they don't want me to go to another state? Can I still go through the process?
