I have an hour long bus ride to get to another town for college. It never used to be a problem for me until my vocational direction start to change. I do art at college and it's so unbelievably boring and stressful, I recently got a new job in childcare which I just want to do now full time but my dad insists I finish this course (which I understand to a degree because I've been on it for two years and I finish in maybe April time)
My dad struggles with money and I want to help him as well as be more stable and fulfilled in myself, because after two years I know this course will get me nowhere art related...
I know I have to finish it, but I have no passion or motivation whatsoever...
I've skipped a bunch of class in these last weeks (my attendance isn't that bad however I'm still far above the worry stage) and I just don't have to energy to go in... what do I do...

If the course finishes in April then you only have a couple of months to go. Having stuck at it for around 90% of the course maybe the best bet is to stick it out - you're so close to a qualification that will provide evidence that you can stick at a course and work to a high level - even if it's in something you don't want to carry on with.
Packing it in now will give a different kind of message on your CV,
Everyone sometimes takes the wrong direction - it's inevitable so don't beat yourself up about it.
Good luck with it all
