Sounds like some pretty rough time you're having and I understand your frustration.
But if I may ask, what is it that you want to do? Just earning some money? Because I don't think that doing some paper work would be much more interesting than attending your classes in College.
The educational cage seems to be something today's society has locked us in. No one can really escape it. We are expected to climb up the ladder of success and get a well paid job, with a proper educational level achieved of course. That way, every family wants that their children start out with a proper education. Can't be helped.
Most school stuff is unnecessary and very uneffective education ... like latin in my school for instance. I mean, I know for sure I'll never need to be able to translate a latin sentence. Period. Why learning it in the first place? Still, I value school for not having any responsibility.
Although I guess your situation is a bit different. But anyway, for whom are you studying if not for yourself? If you really dislike it that much ... You just waste precious time that way, don't you?
