I swear to God I'm just going to drop out of School!

I really am.
Two of my profs can barely speak English, another doesn't give a flying f*ck if he supplies us with enough books or not, another has all but outright said she hates us all and she should really be on anti-psychotics. Another is a wacked out, half baked hippie with a photographic memory who thinks that everyone else has the same kind of memory and he can therefore just test us on any OBSCURE fact in the book. Every week.
I am ready to give up.
Why am I paying THEM to do this to ME?
Sigh.
I was burnt out about four months ago and I was stupid enough to push myself over the edge (so to speak) with a very intensive hard science semester.
Point Being....Cheer me the Hell up! I need some PLEBA lovin'.
Caption those pics ladies.
If you need me, I'll be in the oven.
-Blue

Oh, poor baby!
*sends Bluey a cyber hug*
Please, don't fall down. I know you can do it. Listen to me: I dropped out of school many moons ago, and now it's the only thing I regret in my life. You have to be strong, dear. Please hang on, everything will go just fine.

And I have a question, Bluey: The teachers are the ones giving you a bad time??? If so, why don't you try to change school or something?? There must be something to do.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE ponder about it.

Ana
Listen to some U2, how'bout Zooropa??

Blueeyes I know just how you feel.

I FAILEd my calc test. and I studied HARD. I don't understand...
I have a Bio test on Friday...the last avg. for Bio was 48%...what does THAT say?


Don't do anything you'll regret. It'll all be worth it when you're a doctor...
*big hugs*

Cheer up...think about an elevated Bono...

And so the collective PLEBAN sigh begins...

*stands on the verge of the dropout cliff*

You know... pushing the "drop" button really looks good right now.

I can't believe this... *sighs* I'm probably getting the best grades of my career... yet I can't write these two bloody papers!

From the lips of Bono:

Stuck In A Moment (You Can't Get Out Of)

I'm not afraid of anything in this world
There's nothing you can't throw at me that I haven't already heard
I'm just trying to find a decent melody
A song that I can sing in my own company

I never thought you were a fool
But darling, look at you
You gotta to stand up straight, carry your own weight
These tears are going nowhere, baby

You got to get yourself together
You got stuck in a moment and you can't get out of it
Don't say that later will be better now you're stuck in a moment
And you can't get out of it

I will not forsake, the colors that you bring
But the nights you fill with fireworks
They left you with nothing
I'm still enchanted by the light you brought to me
I still listen through your ears, and through your eyes I can see

And you are such a fool
To worry like you do
I know it's tough, and you can never get enough
Of what you don't really need now... my oh my

You got to get yourself together
You got stuck in a moment and you can't get out of it
Don't say that later will be better now you're stuck in a moment
And you can't get out of it

I was unconscious, half-asleep
The water is warm till you discover how deep...
I wasn't jumping... for me it was a fall
It's a long way down to nothing at all

You got to get yourself together
You got stuck in a moment and you can't get out of it
Don't say that later will be better now you're stuck in a moment
And you can't get out of it

And if the night runs over
And if the day won't last
And if your way should falter
Along the stony pass
It's just a moment
This time will pass

I love that song... but for some reason, the goal seems so distant right now.

OMG J-Tree. I'm on the verge of crying. I really feel sad for Bluey. She needs to be strong. I hope she takes the right decision

*crosses fingers for Bluey*

ah, crying... trust me... that's all I've been doing... my brain's become a useless piece of mush... I cried till it hurt and then some. Apparently it didn't write my term papers for me...

Aww, thanks so much you guys!
It's good to know I'm not the only one ready to call up the registration system and hit the magical drop button.
I know what you mean Jtree, I had a crying jag before an exam tonight...great timing. I walked in looking mighty unglamourous if I say so myself. I really really hate crying. It messes with the makeup you know.
I know what you mean about marks, my marks are pretty good right now, but I just feel like a huge failure.
I'll make you a deal Jtree, I won't quit if you won't. If we both quit, we will "Themla and Louise" it and drop at the same time. Hopefully we won't. Don't quit, you are so close, really. Look at me, I could have another decade of this. Btw, the thought that Hell could be a perpetual Chemistry Lab is what keeps me a good person.
Thanks for the song. I got in my car to go to class tonight and it started as soon as I drove away (and turned up all by itself Lol...my car stereo is possessed!).
Ana, thanks for your concern. I will be fine, I just need a little push every now and then.
You guys are great, and I feel better reading these.
UV299, Sweetest_Thing, Jtree...you'll all be okay. Just remember,the bell curve is your buddy.
Thanks again,
-Bluey

Bluey I feel your pain, really girl. Right now school's got me so completely unmotivated I have 3 papers that are late. And guess what I don't give a rats ass. And no I wasn't always like this, in fact I used to be pretty studious. It's just like you I've grown extremely disillusioned with the school system. Like Matt Damon said in Good Will Hunting, you pay thousands of dollars for an education you could've gotten for a couple of bucks in overdue library charges. All for a fucking piece of paper after 4 years of having teachers dictate to you what books to read then testing you as to whether you MEMORIZED the info. The world is so fecking backwards, my head spins to just think about it. You wanna know the worst? I technically don't even need a major for what I want to work with (film) it just happens to be safe route in case I don't make it in. So if you feel you're in a hole, consider me in an Abyss.

I think I read somewhere you want to be a doctor, unfortunately this leaves you no choice but to suck it in and take the torture. But you can make it easier on yourself and REALLY look into another school. Cause if it's the professors you're bumping heads with then you do have a choice just make sure you speak to some before transferring to another school and making the same mistake.

I don't know but if you want to be miserable, we can be miserable together.

Sounds good mbi..you, me, jtree...Vegas baby.
It goes deeper than just profs, like you said it's the whole concept of it. The wasted money for a credential. I mean, for a doctor...yes, the M.D. is important. But I'm not even sure if that's the road I want to take anymore.
When I was growing up I never knew what I wanted to be (except for a super famous singer/ rockstar etc...but that's every kid's dream). I knew who I wanted to be, what kind of person...but I didn't think about what I was going to do in the mean time. I guess I feel a lot of pressure to go into Med School. Mostly self - imposed. I don't know. It's martini time.

*Larry gives blueeyes the up and down*
Sgt. Larry: So you wanna be a doctor aye? *Larry paces back and forth*
Blueeyes: *nodds*
*Larry pulls out Blueeyes' last exam*
Sgt. Larry: You see this? *points at Blueeyes' grade* Do you know where it came from?
Blueeyes: My head. *blueeyes crosses her arms defiantly*
Sgt. Larry: Good. *Larry sticks his face right up to Blueeyes' and grumbles* SO DON'T WASTE IT!!!
*Larry, now proficiently chuffed up, marches out of the room*

*Blueeyes is in her room, bent over a Chemistry textbook when Jtree comes in.*
Jtree: Dude..this sucks.
Bluey: Dude..I know.
*Both of them start bawling like babies*
*There is a knock at the door...*
Bluey: *sniff, sniff* Who is it?
Edge: It is I..THE EDGE!
Jtree: EDGE!!??
Edge: Yes, I am here to help you with your school work. Now what have you got here?
Jtree: I have two political science papers to do!
*Bono bursts in*
Bono: Did I hear politics?
Jtree: Bono! Thank GOD!
*Larry...now in a dominatrix outfit cracks his whip..he has a German accent for some reason*
Larry: GET TO VERK!!! Ve haf vays to make you verk!
*Jtree and Bono, frightened by dominatrix Larry scamper to Bluey's computer and start typing not one but two papers of sheer brilliance...as brilliant as Bono's crotch*
Edge: Now, Bluey what did you have here?
Bluey: Well I have a little chemistry to figure out...
*Adam flounces in the room, in a little french maid outfit with a feather duster.*
Adam: Hello, I am Adam and I will be cleaning for you tonight so you can study.
Jtree: Little skirt...*DROOL*
Larry: Girlie man OUT OF ROOM! *Cracks Whip* No more distraction!! ONLY VERK! *He tosses Adam out of the room and looks threateningly at Jtree, who types so fast smoke emerges from the keyboard*
Edge: What do you need to know about Chemistry Bluey?
Bluey: Well I need to get more familliar with the hybridization of orbitals...you know how they mix -
*Macphisto saunters into the room*
Macphisto: Easy darling, they mix like drinks!
Larry: No! Out of Room! Only VERK!
*Macphisto ignores Larry and rubs Bluey's shoulders*
Macphisto: You're so tense darling!
Bluey: *Unintelligeble happy sounds*
Edge: Umm, Macphisto, you are distracting her.
Macphisto: I'm helping! Look...*Macphisto takes the book* Hmmm, well. Actually, according the VSEPR theory, what you really need to remember is that while all electrons are mutually repulsive, lone pairs of electrons situated around an atom are even more repulsed by each other than they are by pairs of electrons that are shared between two atoms.
*Everyone stops. Everyone stares*
Macphisto: Oh come on! I'm not just a pretty face!
Edge: Okay...I'll go burn us something on the BBQ.
Bono: Perfect! That's one paper done JTree!
Jtree: It's so easy with you to talk at me!
Bono: Thanks
Jtree: Can the maid come back?
Bono: Later.
*Bono and Jtree finish her last essay in ten minutes and Macphisto teaches Bluey all about Chemistry while Adam and Edge cook and clean....Ahh yes, the only way to study!*

*door shuts in Adam's face, confused and still carrying the vaccum he heads for the living room. He plops down on the couch next to Marina who is munching away at her popcorn while watching Farewell My Lovely*
Marina: *holding bag of popcorn to Adam* want some?
*grabs a handful and watches as anothers falls to the floor, shrugs*
Adam: Oh well I suppose that gives something to do, why aren't you doing HW?
Marina: Well I am see, I'm supposed to study the evolution of Film Noir by comparing Farewell My Lovely to Sea of Love
Adam: *finding the comparision rather silly* Do they have anything in common besides the word love in their titles?
Marina: Nope
Adam: So what are you writing about?
Marina: I have no idea that's why I'm watching the movie for the 500th time. *funny smell coming from kitchen* Is that smoke?
Adam: Oh no is Bono cooking again?
Marina: No but Edge said he was gonna burn us something on the BBQ *realizing what she just said both Marina and Adam get up and rush to the kitchen spilling the popcorn all over the floor and knocking a lamp over with the vaccum cleaner they enter and find Edge in a cloud of smoke calmy over the BBQ flipping a black piece of meat that falls onto the grill hard as rock*
Edge: It's almost well done why don't you guys grab a plate?
