    This past college year I have been through a lot at home and along with this and other reasons my college attendance is low.
    I have not attended college for at least the last 2 months. I am enrolled on a graphic design course and hated it! The amount of work was unmanageable and I always struggled to meet deadlines.
    I knew the course wasn't right for me even though there were aspects of it I enjoyed.
    Always I would find myself having sat for literally hours and achieved very little and I couldn't understand why this was. Its as if as soon as I sat in front of a screen my mind would just shut off so I decided to quit.
    I do part time work at a supermarket so its not like I'm sat at home doing nothing all the time.

    But my main query is now what do I do. I have this inner feeling like im not progressing towards anything in life; as if I'm just flat lining and this is playing on my mind a lot.

    The only other career path I have a passion for is the technical side of theatre such as lighting directing however I am struggling to find any courses of such a thing.

    Has anyone ever dropped out of college this late in the year?
    If so what did you do?
    Any advice on my possible choices now?
