I am currently twenty-three years old, and my birthday is in September. College is making me miserable. I still have a dream of being a paleoanthropologist, but college ruins everything. It’s all about competition and putting us deep in debt that we can’t get out of. People kill themselves over college, and that is a problem. If we were able to financially comfortable in school, maybe that wouldn’t be a problem, but it’s not. I am starting to believe college is all a scam. You pay $20,000+ every semester, and you could be in school longer than four years. You mess up on one exam, and they make you feel stupid. That is how I currently feel right now. They made these stupid tests to mess with us, even though we know the material. I am not a good test taker. I hate being under stress, and they make me feel stupid because of it. I am officially here and not taking any more crap. These professors and money-hungry officials can go suck a tree somewhere together. I am not wasting all my ’20sin college. This is not fun, it’s boring and miserable. Why should I be unhappy? I plan to get my anthropology degree, but I am dropping my biology minor. I don’t have time for it. All I want to do is travel the world, research, and live off-grid. I want nothing to do with the government. I am officially planning to be a van lifer so that I could travel.

After writing my first paragraph, I chose to waste no more time. I have officially dropped my biology minor. This is such a nice feeling. I am not good at it, and it was holding me back. You should never do something you’re not happy with. That will be a miserable feeling if you do. I started feeling all these things when I realized that we do not have a long time to live. People are dying every day, and it’s sad. I want to see something before I die. I do not want to study before my death. I believe everyone should do the same with their life. Do not waste your life in boring majors and minors that will do nothing for your future. It’s a waste of money and time. I refuse to be a part of a government that ruins everything I touch. You can say that’s life, but it won’t be my life. I don’t want to pay rent or a car note my whole life. They really try to control us and a lot of us don’t even know. It’s your life, do what you want and be in peace with yourself. Do not live a boring life!
