MAN DROPS OUT OF POLY REGRETS AS HE’S UNABLE TO ENTER ANY UNIVERSITY

Advertisements

For reference, A university is where you get a degree and a poly is a trade school/community college where you get a diploma or certificate.

I (18M) was attending poly to get a diploma but I dropped out after becoming disinterested with my trade but later on I realized that I wanted to go to university instead. Because I did not meet the requirements to go to a university I started to take classes at an adult school in order to be eligible.

The first class that I took I got a good grade in but it took me 8 weeks to complete instead of the standard 6 weeks. The problems that I had started when I went to take my second course, I was struggling a lot with understanding the coursework and this caused me to withdraw from the class within one week.

I started another course the week after I dropped out and I am still struggling with the course despite the fact that it is something I have always been good at. It has been 2 weeks and I have only handed in one lessons work so far.

After some thinking I ended up just deciding that it would be better for me to just go back to college and pursue a different trade than the one that I was doing.

I told my dad this but he said that if I drop out of this course then he will kick me out because he doesn’t want me to live with him if I don’t have a “good career” planned out. I told him that I did know what I wanted to do and said some of the trades I had thought about and he said nothing, gave me a disappointed look and walked away.

Parts of me feel bad because I feel like I just gave up before I even tried so I have been wondering if I am just giving up too easily.

What should I do?
