Hey everybody, Just wanna get this off my chest/chat with people who are likely to understand (my family certainly wouldn't ). I'm currently a second year student at uni and I'm slowly but surely loosing all dedication for my degree. When I started, I loved it, it was challenging, interesting and fun, and the little bit of internet marketing I did gave me some financial freedom and meant I didn't really have to worry about money as much as my housemates (you've gotta bear in mind those were back in the days when all I knew was DP and whitehat marketing, so earning a couple hundred $$ a month was all good). Jump to now, I know I no longer want a job related to my degree, its stripped all the love I once had for the subject. I look at my lecturers and I see monotone professors who have spent the last 30 years of their lives researching one protein or one reaction, man that SO isn't for me! Then I come on here and see people making massive ammounts of money and I simply know I could be doing the same if I had the time and freedom to do so. Take the other week for instance, I spent the whole day learning the precise ins and outs of notch signalling in neurone differentiation for a crappy exam, then I come on here, work for 2 hours and make $150 (and I'm not even any good at this kinda thing!!!), how messed up is that? I genuinly see myself making my living online in the future, something a biology degree won't help me achieve. Don't get me wrong, I still love animals and will always wanna keep/work with them (thats what I'm IMing for, the freedom to be able to volunteer at zoo's/wildlife parks without having to worry about money). I should add that I have no intentions of dropping out (well, unless I start pulling 5 figures a month ), I'm going to see this to the end, the problem is when I'm revising for exams (which I should be doing now, heh heh heh) all I can think about is how ridiculus this whole situation is, I'm spending my days learning about VERY specific things that don't really (in the grand scheme of things) mean anything, for a degree that won't lead me onto a job, when I could be setting myself up for life... Can anybody else here relate?
