What a waste...

Honestly, at this point I'm very frustrated.  Being 30, getting a later start in life (financial and educational) is difficult to deal with.  Difficult but manageable. However, sitting here in school I wonder why I'm required to do this. 

Certain classes I understand.  Being an IT major, I totally understand having to take classes like Unix, or database management, or networking, etc.  However, unless I plan on going to South America to do some kind of IT support there, or decide to write a website only in Spanish, why am I required to take TWO semesters of language? Must I take some kind of art class?  History? I'm old enough where I've written my own.  This is just silly. 

It gets to the point where you just want to get out.  I'm looking forward to next semester.  Loading up on IT courses.  I'm dreading the next few as I have to throw in this junk that I don't feel is necessary.  Maybe it will make me smarter? More worldy? I don't know, I just know they get more of my money.

College trolled me...

I completely agree. That's why I stopped going to school and went into business for myself. I don't need a degree to be the boss of myself, and now quite a few more people.

@The Suit hopefully you're successful, as i know many people are that go business themselves. Plan on it one day, just have to generate the capital =]

Thanks for stopping by again =]

I fall in love with system where you choose your own subjects. Can't wait to begin my studies in a bit less than 5 months. For the first time in my life I will have to learn things that actually interest me.

I had to pass philosophy majoring in accounting. I could understand ethics but this?
