I'm thinking about dropping out of college? Watch
I've always struggled with the academic side of education, mostly due to anxiety and depression, and I'm finding that while I enjoyed college at first, and enjoy seeing my friends each day, I have less and less care about the actual courses I'm doing. I don't know if this is just my mental health talking, but I just can't see myself getting a job in any of the three fields where I live now, as I don't want to live away from home. My college are offering a few land-based courses in September, and I'm considering going for one, but the question is do I keep going with college this year or do I drop out, get a job and then go back, or just keep on doing what I'm doing next year as well?
What you could do is just forget about college all together and go for an apprenticeship, that way you're getting qualifications and money at the same time.
You would need to consider what line of work your leaning towards before applying for an apprenticeship though as not every job do apprenticeships.
Or you could do the plan of taking a year off to work, but when you return back to college you're probably just going to feel the same way as you do now.
