leaving college at 17 and starting work ? Watch

    • Thread Starter

    Hello, so my english aint perfect even tho i live in UK( im eastern european )

    So basically im in my 2nd year in college now and, i dont enjoy it at all, like honestly all what i do is just complain how bad the course is, how nothing is related to my life etc.
    Personally i have certain stuff what i do at home , what im working towards,im spending tons of hours on it , and its something that college wont help me with . I've even was looking at college's that were 2 hours away from me and i still cant find any course that i would like it or enjoy it.. So i was thinking , im not sure how the Law's in UK are as each website says different thing but.. I kinda thinking that start working now 8h a day would be way better for me rather than college few things why: for something what i do the stuff i use kinda matters, being at college i need to save up for 6months or so to buy something by working i could get it within a Month or week . I skip college quite a lot , and its not cause i oversleep,lazy or so , but i just cant find an interest in going there. I would reallly appreacite everyones oppinion on what i should do Also,things like talk to teachers etc, all what they say its just nonsense and i know that for sure comments like " u will regret in life " etc arent needed as im confident that i wont regret anything.

    Get a job and get some work experience behind you, don't be too picky with regards to what you do work wise, just get a job so it starts to fill up on your CV.
