I'm currently studying computing at university, and it is coming to the end of my first semester. I always thought that this was something that i was interested in, but i just seem to have no motivation for the course. I also don't know anybody in any of my classes, and am far to socially anxious to go up to and chat to people. I'm thinking of dropping out, but i just wanted other peoples thoughts on the situation.

Don’t run away from your current situation, run towards something better.

I honestly dont know what I want to do tho. I'm really enjoying working, so I was thinking of maybe just getting a full time job. I also really enjoyed graphic design in school, so maybe look into that line of study. I just dont think this course is for me

I'm in my second year, in a course I hate. If you arent feeling it go with your gut sooner rather than later is all I can say. Work for a bit, look at apprenticeships you could go down, alternative routes.

Definitely speak to family, friends and you tutors about the decision though as it is a big one
