So i'm doing my first year in college and it's a pain in the ass. I feel like i am wasting so much time on things i will never need, that do not interest me at all and am not sure how will i benefit off of it, except that i have to finish them to pass. Not all shit is useless, but majority of it is, not to mention that for the majority, it's just a theory with very littlle real life use case. All this hard work so once i'm done with college, i'll be able to get enslaved by an employer work 9hrs a day and get shit. Now let me point out, that i've been watching other students and boy was i impressed. They all seem to be okay with studying and all the work, just following others lead and do what they are told to do. I do not feel like that, if you want to be an engineer you have to learn, but i am really not like that, i have so much resistance and i just hate this shit to be honest, i hate it from the bottom of my heart. I don't believe i could last another 2 years. I am from Europe and the college itself is free. The average salary is like net 1k€. So even if i finish college and get hired somewhere in the IT sector, i would make around 1k a month, probably even less at beginning. But i really don't imagine myself working for somebody else, i WOULD hate that so i am practicaly doing what i hate(college) to be able to do something that i would hate. Ofcourse this is because i am following your standard path there, eg. have good grades, go to college, get a nice job and blahblah, boring. I have saved up around 50k€ so far from various sites and my online endeavours. I love working on my projects(various websites, services and so on). Because i believe that sooner or later one of them will succeed. However due to the college i lack free time to be able to work on my projects At the moment i have no steady income for that reason though. So i REALLY don't know what to do. I am unhappy with this college shit, i hate it, it's so hard for me to focus on studying, i just can't do it. I don't know if i will be able to grind through it just to get a diploma.. Not to mention i don't see a point in getting a degree, getting a job and then on top of that not making shit, but for a living and occasional barbecue. Can someone give me suggestion? I have read about on there a bit and many have said that they regretted dropping out. How would i even tell that to my parents? They are pretty conservative and old fashioned - eg. working their ass off their whole life - they don't know there are ways to make more money faster and easier. With 50k i would be able to live decently for like 5 years not having to do anything. But in the meantime i would like to establish something and get income from business/online sites and so on, i mean even if i fail i could still return to college?? If somebody could give me their oppinion i would really appreciate it.
