i really, truly want a bachelor’s degree but i am so awful at actually attending & succeeding in school despite my talents in my field that i am now looking for jobs to support myself in order to take a hiatus from school (again) & just build a life. as much as i would pride myself in having finished college, i know that i would be ultimately happy with a decent job, my own funds, & my own place. being a homemaker, hosting get togethers, cooking, cleaning, caring for people/animals — all these things please me more than going to class ever has. i know i have great talent & that i can use it somehow in my life but after failing at college so many times (this is my sixth year) i feel like i should just learn from this experience & move on to something that will make me happier. seems simple enough, right? wrong, because my family will disown me if i quit school. everything about my life & my future has been weighing me down but i’m afraid to make a step forward because i know that family-wise it will be a step back. what do i do?
