I'm gonna be 20 in a few months and I still don't know **** . I actually feel dumber than I did when I was in high school.

You're probably not any dumber, it's just that you're not surrounded by the immeasurable idiocy of high-schoolers anymore.

It's normal. Once you figure out what you're doing and start applying yourself, you'll feel like you're successful in life.

24 weighing in here. The world can be big and scary, but it is for everyone. Everyone feels a little lost, but we all fake our way through it. For a lot of the confusing stuff, there's often a nice person behind a desk/counter who's job it is to help you out or point you in the right direction, and just being polite goes a long way.
But if you feel stupid on day-to-day stuff, there is nothing stopping you from learning. Whether or not you're in college, go to the goddamn library and learn something. Learn sign language, how to write computer code, how your car works, how to make cheese, how to brew beer, learn the difference between a stock, a share and a bond. Books will give knowledge and online forums will weigh in with experience. We live in the information age, much of it free. There's no reason to feel stupid if you don't want to.
Another piece of advice I give to you, and all of FunnyJunk, is to carry a swiss army knife or equivalent multitool. Just having the tools to solve problems gives you incentive to do so. Being able to handle all the little problems in the day with just the stuff in your pocket turns you into the guy that gets stuff done. And when people come to you for help, you realize your not so lost as you once thought.

Toilet access is a human right.
Toilet access is a human right.

So you're telling me that its illegal to refuse someone toilet access? Even a kid in school? Please say yes.
#94 to #51 - blancka (02/02/2014) [-]
Yes, kind of.

Basically they can and will say no. But they can't do **** if you get up and go anyway. They'll threaten it, but they're powerless, as refusal to use of a toilet can cause serious medical issues.

The ******** an institution like school or university is, the more restrictive they get on you. My experience.

I can vouch this. My old high school would expel you even though you were faking a fight, then would confiscate your Ipod during lunch and you couldn't do anything indoors at lunch time.

Many people don't know what they want to do until junior year in college, a good percentage of people change their major twice or more. Just relax, work hard, do your gen ed and keep an eye out for stuff that you enjoy.

mum:"well its a pretty big decision, you have to live with it and if you don't like the choice later in life it can be embarrassing and not a lot you can do about it"

true, but choice is limited, for us its like
"you can do anything you want at university! there is a whole range of courses!"
as long as you have basic qualifications t high school level, and a further and more specified degree at college education in the subject you want to choose
"ANYTHING AT ALL!"

The reason today's teenagers feel so lost is that they believe that school is the SOLE place that they're supposed to receive education. That's not true at all.

Your entire life you're supposed to be experimenting and finding out things that interest you beyond school.
User avatar #36 to #25 - ScottP (02/02/2014) [-]
Yes but we are told from the first day of school that school is our only place to learn.
User avatar #38 to #36 - swimmingprodigy (02/02/2014) [-]
no you're not. It's the idea that a formal education is given by schools, and a formal education is all you'll ever need

What is with all these My Little Pony things? Sick of it.. Am I alone on this?

On another note, yes, at our sixth form, they say they treat us like adults yet we have to stand by almost every rule and limitation we previously had, from this most students in the sixth from hate it, then they wonder why everyone does so crap.

I took me a year and a half in college to finally get over raising my hand to ask a question. Raising your hand for permission to speak can increase some efficiency when talking in large groups, but for me it just makes me feel inferior because I'm not allowed to speak when I want to. I had a professor last semester who insisted on following all of the high school etiquette rules and pushed them onto our class. It made me end up hating the class.
User avatar #6 to #5 - rheago ONLINE (02/02/2014) [-]
I was taught for seven years that I should adress every teacher with mr. or miss.
I'm in college now and it took me two years to shake that habit.
We still have to raise our hand though
User avatar #8 to #6 - hyeroshi (02/02/2014) [-]
I've always considered Mr., Mrs., and Ms. as honorifics, so I've never had a problem with it. I call a few of my friend's parents names with Mr/Mrs before it. I had a teacher ask my class just to call him Andrew because he didn't like being called Mr.

A teacher once told me i couldn't go to the toilet, i was sick and ate medicine that was diuretic, so i just pissed in our classroom. I was never denied toilet access again after that.

Why do we need permission to go to the bathroom? Is that necessary or is just some form of showing control over the students? I always asked this to myself
User avatar #24 to #4 - threeeighteen (02/02/2014) [-]
I wonder if they've had dumbass kids that get lost in the toilets or somehow drown in them.
User avatar #31 to #4 - eatchickendaily (02/02/2014) [-]
My school's claim is that they don't want people skipping classes. Probably also to prevent drugs and vandalism too.
User avatar #32 to #31 - eatchickendaily (02/02/2014) [-]
In fact, my high school doesn't allow any student to use the restroom during classes at all. Only the five-minute breaks in between classes. I think I've seen just one kid beg and plead to a teacher enough to let him go.
#103 to #32 - blancka (02/02/2014) [-]
You know that ****** illegal?

It's part of your human rights, schools can't do **** if you get up and go. They say they can. They can't. They have no power to follow through when you go and follow through.
User avatar #105 to #103 - eatchickendaily (02/02/2014) [-]
Pretty much every teacher in the school disagrees with the rule but enforces it because the principal is a menace. If you actually manage to leave the classroom and go use the restroom without asking, of course you'll be able to do it but you'll probably have a detention or even suspension notice handed to you the next time you go back.

I hate the rule so much myself. I'm not sure if it's "illegal" though.
User avatar #141 to #103 - sagedivinity ONLINE (02/03/2014) [-]
I once saw one of my teachers refuse a girl restroom access, she got up and left anyway and then was sent to the principals office after returning to class. She got a day of detention for "non-compliance."

if you're going to the toilet you're not learning
User avatar #149 to #4 - unfortunately (02/03/2014) [-]
I am never told that I can't go to the bathroom, but I always ask. It's just a politeness thing.
User avatar #52 to #4 - dyllygaf (02/02/2014) [-]
I figure that students have to ask to go to the bathroom so the teacher at least knows what they're doing instead of just getting up and walking out of the class, I bet a LOT of high school students would abuse the **** out of that if it were actually like that
User avatar #89 to #52 - chenn (02/02/2014) [-]
Do you really believe they don't abuse it now? They can ask to go to the toilet but go smoke a cig outside, instead. The teachers don't care enough to interrogate them or anything and this "can I go pee" has become a formality, or more like a lie.
User avatar #10 to #4 - vgmddg (02/02/2014) [-]
In the case of an emergency, they likely want to know where you are. Depending on the school, it could also be to trace who's causing vandalism.
User avatar #101 to #10 - kevtheg (02/02/2014) [-]
but cant they just allow you to sign out of class
leave a destination and time
User avatar #139 to #101 - sagedivinity ONLINE (02/03/2014) [-]
Thats a good solution. Except some kids may walk out without signing; I guess teachers will have to watch out for that.

I do really like this idea though.

Take the right classes in High School, and you'll be prepared somewhat for these decisions.
User avatar #12 to #3 - wliia (02/02/2014) [-]
I don't feel like that's right. I took a whole bunch of ap classes in highschool, and those that weren't were honors Not like that means a whole lot and I'm so lost as to what to do about my future.

Taking higher level classes in highschool will leave you prepared to deal with whatever decision you do make, but it doesn't really help you to make the right choice.

My brother has 4 years to get 28 credits.
He has to have:
4 Math credits
3 Science credits
4 English Credits
3 Social Study classes
Social studies include: U.S History (required), Geography, World Geography, World History, European History; Economics and U.S. Government are only semester courses, and have to be taken in the same school year.
That leaves him with 17 credits. You have to take some kind of fine art class: band, chorus, Art. You can either take gym, and wellness (taken the same way Econ and US Gov. are), but taking 2 years of JROTC will count towards that, but if you take 3 years of it you don't have to take Econ. and US Gov. Students are required to take keyboarding. You have to take 2 years of any of our extensive list of foreign languages (2) to count as one credit
The school only offers a few business classes, most of which are required if you take the Technical, or Dual path. They are offered as electives on the University/College path. The thing is, you have to have certain grades in other class before you can take those classes. Juniors specifically have to take an ACT prep course throughout the year. The students have almost no time to take courses that will prepare them for real life situations; such as filing for bankruptcy, taking out loans, getting insurance, buying a house, etc.
User avatar #39 to #37 - vortexrain (02/02/2014) [-]
Econ. and U.S. Gov. are required unless you take 3 years of JROTC. I forgot to mention that they were required.
User avatar #40 to #3 - ScottP (02/02/2014) [-]
Eh...I don't feel prepared. I took the honors classes, the AP classes. I did well in them all. Got A's throughout High-school. Don't have any idea on what to expect. I don't feel ready to open the door and step outside.
User avatar #58 to #3 - pokemonstheshiz (02/02/2014) [-]
I came out of high school with 55 credits, still wasn't prepared. In fact, it was harder because I couldn't adjust with easy classes
User avatar #17 to #3 - jajathezombie (02/02/2014) [-]
"Take the right classes." As if you have a choice in what classes you take in high school. In 4 years, I got to choose a grand total of 3 classes, and it was still highly restrictive.

Everyone,

I don't know what the **** is wrong with all of you. You should all be an electrician. Electricians stay clean and work with their minds. Electricians have an interesting job, and learn new things everyday. Electricians hold their multi million dollar pieces of equipment in each ******* hand, and bounce a third one on their dicks. Electricians are tougher than every other trade. Electricians eat batteries and **** nuclear waste. Every car that isn't a complete piece of **** needs an electrician to fix it. Electricians control the ******* lighting on everything. Electricians know which piece of metal is safe to touch and which will turn you into ******* smoke. Electricians make ******* history. Electricians invented the ******* 20th century. Electrician **** smells like bakery fresh bread with a hint of rosemary. Being an electrician is an art in itself. Electricians are better than Picasso, Michaelangelo, mozart, and that other faggot combined. Electricians make way more ******* money than anyone else. Being an electrician is ******* exhilerating, I make 8 million dollars a month and I **** a chick with massive tits everyday. Not only that, but it takes amazing skill and precision. Yesterday I had to use six wire plenum instead of eight wire. I also had to do some basic math on my notebook because I forgot my cell phone. Anyone who isn't an electrician just gets in our way. They are also stupid, because they are too stupid to become an electrician. We run the world. We built this planet. You inane ******** wouldn't be reading this on the internet if it wasn't for electricians.

My father has been with ComEd for well over 20 years, starting with the ****** , literally back-breaking work of digging places for power lines (he dislocated some spinal discs and can barely move around much anymore), and worked his way up to the good spots. He earns well over $110k per year, and has first pick on his vacation days and overtime. Despite his coworkers often being... well... less than companionable, he says he wishes he didn't waste time at college and had jumped right in a few years earlier. (He didn't use his degrees AT ALL to obtain this job).

He's pretty much telling me and my two younger siblings to join in, since the electric business isn't going anywhere anytime soon, and college is NOT NEEDED.
