I am recent graduate from a degree this summer and I regret all of it. It is one of my biggest regrets and I feel it has harmed me irreparably and I will not be able to mentally or physically recover from the grief it has caused me.
I hated studying and I feel I only went because of my parents. I am now unemployed, despite working my hardest to attain a First Class degree. I also have made no friends, having only spoken to two people since I graduated. They literally do not care about me at all.
I will likely never use my degree in real life. I am going into an industry that does not even require a degree, so it was useless me attaining one. Also no one in my family cares about my degree. They were moaning at me for not having a job a week after graduation finished. It was that soon. No one cares about your degree.
If anything, a degree might actually be a hinderance rather than help considering the vast amount of unemployed graduates out there and that employers cry out for experience rather than qualifications. I am sure I will cry my eyes out when I start paying off my student loan because only then will I truly realise what a waste of time it was. Please don’t go. Do anything else but go. It will ruin your life. I wanted to write more but I do not have the time or energy anymore. Thanks for reading. Have a good day.
