    I started university right out of high school going into engineering for my dad which lasted about two weeks of crying every single day after school so then I dropped out and worked the rest of the year. I then did a full year of accounting, loved my school and friends that I had made but accounting just was too dry. Math has always been my strong suit and favourite subject in school so I decided I should get my math degree and become a teacher. I had to switch to a new school since they didn’t have my program at my previous school. I absolutely hate university. I hate learning I hate studying there is nothing I enjoy about it and this year has been so much worse cause I have yet to make any friends at my new school. I have breakdowns at least twice a week and just generally am miserable. My grades are horrible I’m getting C+ in all my math classes which is the lowest grade I can get while still continuing on. I also just don’t feel like I fit with anyone in my classes they all enjoy learning the stuff and find it interesting whereas I just wanna get it over with and move on to the next. My question is, is it normal to hate everything about university? I don’t have any motivation to do anything I always leave everything till last minute which just makes everything worse I know but I truly just don’t wanna do it but feel like I have no other options please help!

    Uni isn't for everyone and that's fine. It sounds like you are a bit lost at uni and aren't enjoying it as much as you thought you would. Why not take some time off and work for a bit. You don't need a uni degree for everything and the time working may help you to realise that you don't need to go to uni at all.
