    I hope that you go back to school next year. Working for minimum wage is not the way to go.

    Agreed. Its hard for a person to acquire a good job without a degree.

    Sucks but true. On the flip side, school's not for everyone.

    Sure, but you pretty much NEED a high school diploma these days. While a GED can be ok, some places require a hs diploma.

    Sometimes life gets in the way of school. It happens. But don't forget about school by any means. Worst case scenario, go get your GED, man. You can't get by anymore just working with no diploma/GED. It's too dang hard.
    College isn't for everyone but you gotta get your high school diploma or at least GED. Good luck and glad your grandmother is better.

    Trust me.

    Go to school, get an education, or prepare for a hard hard life. While schools not for everyone, the alternative is for even less. Its working long hours of hard jobs that don't pay well to hopefully one day move up, or join the Army (What i did).

    You may hate school, and school may hate you, but its worth it.

    I'm happy for ur grandma but get ur BUTT back in school (evening classes, online etc.)...I'm sure ur grandma would want you to at least finish. Life isn't always fair nor sympathetic...you're going to have to work twice as hard with ur grandma to help, working and school but it's worth it...get it done now vs later or you will regret it...I know I did

    I didn't realize that you were a college student. I'm glad that your grandmother is recovering and doing well.

    slatonisabeast, my initial thought is missing school for a year will make it easier for you to not go next year. Kind of like a college student taking a semester off, promising to go the next year and 5 years later, wishing he finished what he started.

    I'm sorry for your grandma, and I'm happy that even at 100+ she is still alive, but c'mon man!!!!!!! In the grand scheme of things, your grandma wants you to finish school so you don't have to earn minimum wages for a living. Take the time to grieve, but don't put yourself in a position to where you're getting kicked out of school because you're missing too many days.

    Get back to school, dude. There ain't a frickin' thing worth dropping out for. Believe me...the quality of the honeys at J & J can't touch those at your school. Get back...NOW!

    Life is tough...it's tougher if you're stoopid. And being stoopid is a choice. YOU are better than that, man!


    It really sucks you have no responsible adult in your life to lead you by example.

    Your parents just let you not go to school? Very responsible parenting! :clap:

    My grandmother died of cancer, in my house, two months before I graduated high school. I think I maybe missed one day of school. I cannot believe your parents would be so irresponsible to let you skip school because your great grandmother was sick.

    Then someone needs to show you that "fits" are not acceptable. I think that is a lesson I would teach my kids with an ass whoopin' or 5.

    There's a school down in Harlingen your folks oughta look into. Tailor made for kids like you, too. Hopefully they will.

    My suggestion to you is get into some good therapy/counseling to work through the problems you are currently facing. That way when you go back to school next year(perhaps even summer school now) you will have the coping strategies in hand to deal with your emotional problems.

    There is nothing wrong with having emotional problems as long as you are taking steps to work through them.

    You got it, Roc, three letters: MMA. I've seen and heard of countless young men who come down here and get straightened out. Discipline and structure...

    MODS please delete that first post...apologies

    MMA? Really? I don't know about teaching them to fight would be better than trade school? Automotive mechanics make a good, honest, and safe living.

    FWIW, I think slaton is full of doodoo. I believe his misspellings to be greatly exaggerated and intentional. The guy can spell poise, recently, attack but not better or really? C'mon now... when will this charade end?

    I think the kid is starving for attention. The attention that he isn't getting at home.

    By the way, MMA stands for Marine Military Academy.

    the worst thing i ever did in my life was fail out of college. Point blank period. But if not for that, would i have my fiancee and my life and my 2 cats and a new turtle? I don't know.
