not everything is about college... that's whats wrong with our society as a whole, now a days it seems like college is required by law and that's ********. College isn't for everybody; trade schools & other things of those sort are seemingly flying out the window. We are implanting in our minds that do be able to do anything but a minimum wage job you need a college degree, and its far from that. In all reality its some of the reason our economy is so bad, everyone is going into debt for jobs that could easily be taken by someone who went to a Trade School or just a normal High School diploma with a little but of training

No, in most cases not. You work a lower wage job until you can find work with the qualifications you gained through college, and you work your way up in that position by working hard and trying to improve. Without college, you guarantee that you're gonna be stuck with the ****** life that is lower class.

Anyone who uses the economy as an excuse to not educate themselves is full of **** and deserves to live the life that they're too lazy to try to improve.

You look for a job requiring the necessary qualifications which will boost your chances of getting that job.
You'll have better pay than you would've had if you didn't go to college, and maybe even enjoy your job more. Don't think college is a waste of time because it does far in the long run.

Wrong.

I'm joining the army as soon as I turn 18 so I can train to be an auto mechanic at Fort Dix for my AIT training, and working there for 20 years till I can retire and earn a military paycheck WHILE I get a second paycheck working as a dental technician.

Such a basic assumption by the way.

Also, if you really think your copy and pasted plan for your life is going to work for you, go for it.

Never said you were a college dropout, you just sound like one.
Your ideas of college and further education are blurred, its not a "copy and paste" there's so much variety of courses and things to achieve in universities or college not all strictly being academic , you can get some military qualifications and join the military at a higher rank (leading back to my other point). Plus Its a good experience and builds skills,further education is much different compared to high school, you're not just told to copy notes and told that this is that, its more down to your own study and research and helps build independance (aswell as living without parents)
I can't help but think you're a jar head, but sincerely, I wish you the best in your military service.

I'm proud to be a jar head, and I'm proud to be surrounded by fellow jar heads.

College isn't the type of education for me, and it's not the type of advancement I want in life. Yes, although college can help you pursue a higher paying career, it's still a risk depending on what you go for because chances are, you'l have someone better than you out there, that wants the same job you do, and there aren't an unlimited amount of jobs out there that everyone can just work hard to get.

For example, my mother's an immigrant from Korea that made a high paying living working as a dental technician. She couldn't afford college and couldn't afford to pay off college whilst paying for her already as low as can get living standard. So she didn't go to college, and decided to open up a dental laboratory instead.

College isn't for everyone, and I believe you have absolutely no right to judge people for choosing a different course for themselves.

Also, thank you for that last sentence.

Everything in life is a risk, its riskier not going to college/uni. You can be that better person in that field if you work your ass off, even If you're not the best but you'll certainly be better and life will be better. Yes you can still have a good life finding your own direction without guidance from further education but its less streamlined and more of a struggle, I bet your mother wish she could've gone to college. I would never judge someone for choosing a different course in life as it all boils down to you and your ambitions, however I am judging you on your narrow-minded view on the benefits of further education.

Good day, Sir.

More and more kids are starting to complain about school. Are you at school 8 hours a day, 5 days a week? No. Generally speaking, you start school around 8:30, and finish at 3:30. That's 7 hours, plus some schools give you an hour for lunch break. You sit around all day, just learning. Wait until you actually have a full time job, than you can complain. 8 hours of work 5 days straight, with only a 30 minute lunch break. Technically speaking you're at work for 8 1/2 hours. Depending on your work, you will do homework as well. So suck it up dick wads, you're only in school for a fraction of your life. And also, if you paid attention in school and worked instead of talking to your friends, you wouldn't get homework.

In what ******* world does paying attention not give you homework? If you're smart and competitive enough to try to get to a high level college, you're taking AP classes if available. If you're taking 3 or 4 AP classes, you average out about 4 hours of homework, not including studying for the AP test. That on top of extra curricular actives and/or sports, usually with a job to pay for those AP tests, you literally have NO social time except for a few hours on weekends and you're averaging 5 hours of sleep.

People make 250k+ a year for barking orders at people and making ******** deals 3 hours a day.

I would say higher level high school students have about the same amount of stress in their life as the majority of adults who work.

Maybe it's different where you're from.
I had an 8 hour (or more) schoolday with 30 minutes for lunch, and a 10 minute break.
If all you do during the day is the bare minimum for school (which is pretty much showing up and nothing else, like you described), you can pretty much kiss your chances at getting into a good uni goodbye.
At least in my circle of friends, we did at least 15 hours worth of extracurricular activities a week.

As for the homework thing... Yea, the essay will just write itself while you're sitting in class not talking to your friends.

Oh so you want to do good in life, you need to actually work at it? Who ******* knew. It's the exact same thing with work. If you show up and do the bare minimum, you'll never get promoted. But if you go up and beyond what you're supposed to do, you have chances of getting promoted. If kids are complaining about school now, no way will they survive in the real world, where they need to handle a job as well as actual responsibilities. Such as rent, bills, buying food. Not to mention if you have a medical condition it's just that much more responsibility. What I'm getting at, is school is easy compared to other things you need to do in life. So what you need to do 1-2 hours of extra homework some nights of the week? How will you survive when you're going to college/university and have a full-time job to pay for your expenses when you think high-school is so hard? Good luck is all I have to say to you. Not you personally, in general all high-school students.

Yes, my view on high school is apparently different, I must have skipped the whole high-school thing I guess. Then what was that building I went to for 12 years of my life everyday full of kids? Hmmm, a true mystery... Sure, school is tough. But it sure is a hell of a lot easier then other things. University is easy because you're going for something you actually want to do, not just **** you're forced to do. I know how people feel, I was bullied in school from grade 1 to 12, to the point I needed a body guard at one point. I got bullied for having diabetes. I got so behind in some of my classes I was stuck behind a week after school was done trying to finish all my assignments. I know exactly what it's like because I've gone through it. I've also gone through how difficult it is after school, when you're living on your own and trying to make enough money to pay for rent, bills, and all that **** while going to college and getting homework done. I was just like every other kid, thinking about how school sucks donkey ass and it's pointless. But now I can see there are things much more difficult than just highschool. And kids these days complain like it's the hardest thing in the world.

So what you're essentially saying is that you shouldn't complain about anything in the present, because even if it's the trying time in your life so far, you might have to deal with something even more difficult in the future so you're not entitled to bitch about it.

That's honestly not going to stop.

Also, if you could just stop generalizing every high school experience in the world, that'd be great.

How about this, in my school it starts at 8:00 and ends at 3:00 you are right, that's 7 hours. But we only get 25 minute lunches and half that time is getting the lunch and getting situated. But here is the kicker, 75% or more of the junior and senior grade have jobs. That means my ass gets up at 6, gets ready for school get out at 3 and then I have one single ******* hour till I am working till 11 to 12 at night. depending on the day I have a 14-15 hour "work" day. And this isn't uncommon for people my age, so how about you take your self righteous "adult" ass and shut the **** up.

My old school (I just graduated) started at 7:30, so yes we did/do go to school for 8 hours a day, 5 days a week. For those Holidays we would only get the day of the holiday off, unless it happened on the weekend, than we would get no days off. That's just the High School. The Elementary School kids start school at 7:50 and don't get out until 4:45 which is about 9 hours. That's why we here in northern Indiana complain.

P.S. and here in Indiana, at least in Elkhart, if you want to drop-out you have to be a independent 19 year-old. Which means you can't drop-out till you are already graduated.

Wait until you go to college/university for 5 hours in the morning, then go to work for 8 hours.

So that's 7 hours Mon. and Wed., and 2 hours on Tuesday and then I'm free the rest of the week. So I can work anytime Thur. Fri. Sat. and Sun. If you can schedule your classes right, there are no problems to be had and no ***** to be given. And work, I am going to be working at a pizza place.

Not all places let you plan out your schedule like that. First time I went to College, I had class the same as any high-school. 8:00 am to 3:40 PM, then had to deal with going to work after that, on top of getting homework done. Second time I went to college, for a different course, it was a little better. 7:30 - 12:30 pm so it was easier to get a full time job. but my homework suffered because of it.

I don't know what high school you went that started at 8:30 and had an hour long lunch. My school only gets 20 minutes and most kids are lucky to get 30-35 for lunch. almost all high schools start somewhere between 7:00 and 7:30 which isn't that bad compared to the average job except for the fact that most kids have to take the bus which means that they have to be outside waiting and ready to go as early as 6:30. This still wouldn't be bad except for the fact that you don't get paid meaning that many kids have to get a job after school where they work around 2-3 hours a day and then come home where you have to do chores and 1-3 hours of homework and even though you are "working" 10 hours a day you only get paid for 3 of them, not to mention you are making minimum wage. I don't think my life is harder then most working adults' but I think the way you are acting like students have it so much better and have nothing to worry about is ridiculous.

this is well stated. i think that the people who run the school board aim as high as they can to make the schooling experience as much related to the working world as they can. going to school and trying your hardest is the best thing you can do as a kid. jobs are hard to come by and whoever has the best education always gets it unless you 'know a guy' in the company or have an excellent background in the field. kids, go to school.

I had to wake up at around 5:30 to catch a bus at 6 to get to college on time as well. I won't deny that it ******* sucks.

I'm sorry, but needing to have a job while you're a high-school student to pay for your cellphone is not a priority. You don't get paid for going to school, sure, but you gain knowledge. Knowledge is priceless, sad to say college's make you pay a **** ton to go back to school. When you're living at home, going to high-school, all you need to worry about is high-school, and sure the few chores you have to do that EVERY adult needs to do. Most of the time, your parents do part of the chores around the house. When you're living on your own, you need to do everything yourself. Sure work starts at 7:00 AM, but you still need to get up much earlier to get ready for work, and the car ride there. You still fail to see my argument. School is nothing to complain about once you get out in the real world.

Most students get a job to save money to pay for college or to help support their families, not just to pay for their cellphones. Everyone has to get ready in the morning and get a ride wherever they are going, not just adults. A student who's bus leaves at 6:30 has to wake up at 5:40, take a shower, eat breakfast, and then walk to the bus stop where they will have to wait outside until the bus picks them up, often in the snow if you live in the north. I understand that adults have more responsibilities and the argument that you are trying to make but, I still think that the average student has it much worse off then you believe.

I'll agree with that it may be worse than what I believe, school has apparently changed a lot since I went 4-5 years ago. But It's not as bad as what some students may think.

Most of my friends had jobs in high school so they could get a car and pay car insurance, that's how their parents were. One of my friends had a job simply because his parents wouldn't buy him food so he had to get his own food (he didn't have a cellphone). So don't say high school students don't need jobs.

A car is a not a priority, it's a necessity. You can get around without a car. As for your friend with his parents not buying food, his parents are complete dicks. My parents actually wanted me to only need to worry about school. And don't say I was spoiled because I got **** whenever I asked for something. I was lucky enough to get $10 a month from them.

Here a car is not a necessity it is a priority. He could not have made it to school without one. Out here if you live more than 15 minutes outside of the school, like me, you have to drive yourself or catch a ride, the bus would not come for you. Which I was happy to give some of them when they wanted or needed one. There are no taxis buses in Elkhart except for downtown.

(My friends parents said that high school was a learning experience for real life and that he had to learn to not be a free-loader so they gave him nothing he had to do everything himself from grade 9 till he graduated.)

I was fortunate that the small town I lived in had a school, otherwise I would have been ****** going to school, my parents would have had to drive me and honestly, they wouldn't have done that every day. I can see having a car in some places might be important, but there are also kids that live a minute away from school and find the need to have a job to buy a car. That's what I'm getting frustrated about, people that think it's tough but don't understand how tough it might be for others in different situations. Might not seem like that the way I was saying things, but for people like your friend, if I was in his shoes, I wouldn't say school itself was hard, just the entire situation he was in. School would have sucked definitely with all the added stress.

School is very easy, compared to say a job. All these down votes must be from retarded kids that think school is the hardest thing in life. Wait until you get into the real world kids, just wait. You don't even know what tough is.

I always think the second statement, what is the point of going home from school if you're gonna do the same work you did in school, and same with weekends, are weekends not for us to have a break from 5 straight days of school?
