I was on my own all the time in college and I just didn't want to be there. When people had to pair up they left me out, a lot of the group went to the same school but I didn't so I didn't know anyone. I don't know why people made fun of me because I didn't do anything, once I did tell someone to f off at the start of the year because we had these cameras for this ask we were doing in college and these guys were trying to take a picture of me so I said that but I said sorry plus they were taking the mick out of me before that. I might have told them to f off for making fun of me. Staff were helpful at first, I reported it which I know is childish and being a snitch but it was making me miserable but I still feel bad so I spoke to one of the teachers who sorted it out which helped a bit but people made still fun of me but just discretely and I raised it with our tutor again but they refused to sort it that time and made excuses. I know its embarassing crying to a teacher but I didn't know what else to do, they were making college harder than it already was, I could have just hit them but tbf but I would have got done for assault and police might have got involved etc.
I have been feeling down a lot this year. I just have not liked college tbh and I would have quit in December if my parents let me but they didn't. If anything my confidence has gone worse. My course was supposed to help some people with low confidence but no. The staff are crap as well, the students and I just dont know what qualification I have got from this course, I have had no exams, it been course work and I don't know why I came. I think one good thing is its only 3 days week in college but that's it really.
As risky as this is, I told my teacher I don't want to work past this year (I'm 18 in September) and he's told my tutor about it. My dad's basically decided what my future holds which I don't like, 4.5 more years in education would ruin me mentally.
Email your tutor about this, so you think and type down everything she should know. You're in control of your future, people with no GCSE's are living decent lives so that's not something to worry about. Parents will be parents but they'll definitely listen to your tutor, even if they disapprove of your decisions.
