College...

Recommended Posts

I've been in twice in the past two months or so. Course leader phoned today and left a message on the house phone. Fortunately no one was in the house at the time and I have deleted the message, shes basically said if I dont go in and do all the work by Friday, I've failed a two year course.

 

What would you do, tell the parents whats happened and go in and do the work or just pretend nothing has happened and stay off.

 

:lol:

Can you feasibly get the work done to a passing standard by Friday?

Do you care about the course?

How do you reckon your parents will react?

Could get the work done, but I dont really give a shit about it anymore, since am going to do football coaching next year thats why I have kinda switched of, I am currently doing some shit course about Web Design and stuff like that. Mam already kinda knows I dont like it anymore but I have been making up excuses for why I am staying off.

I reckon you should do it if you can get the work done. Pain in the arse for a couple of days or whatever but it might be useful in terms of a future job (even if that job isn't specifically about designing web sites). Just a question of whether you can be arsed or not :lol:

Trouble is, if you're focussed on Football coaching now there's no guarantee you'll still want to do that in a years time. I've been in the same boat and I regret not tying off loose ends before starting something new.

 

Also, if you get the Web Design thingy sorted you can help with a couple of ideas I've got for something.

tbh i did somewhat the same as you

went on some 2yr course at college and ditched it after a couple of months, mainly due to the content being moronic and the teachers even more so.

If you have a genuine interest in a subject you tend to be able to pickup more yourself than you can at 90% of those college courses.

 

 

if ya don't give a stuff, do something you will try at instead, no point wasting your time

Ant, what do think would look better on a job application a few years down the line - a two-year web design course or a two-year gap in employment because you couldn't be arsed to finish the course off? Great advice there like.

is it going look better if he fails the thing by rushing through work by the end of the week for something he's barely attended in months?

 

aye it is good advice, i jacked my shit course in, bothered my arse to apply myself at better courses which I finished in stupidly fast times (did a 1year course in 2months for example)

I'm now a fairly high grade for my age and earn more than most of my friends who are graduates in decent jobs (one of which is a lawyer).

 

if your interested in something you'll end up doing a lot better... and i doubt if hes going for an unrelated job which hes qualified for and seemingly worked to try and achieve something at any employer will go "uhh sorry it seems in your early 20's you have a gap here"

 

god help all those people who take a year out to go round the world and such...clearly unemployable
