I see that y'all are kinds inactive, but anyway, I just wanted to introduce myself and explain to you what I have choosen to do with my life.|
I am 18, and I never graduated from high school.
I went to public school through 10th grade and ended up feeling high school was a bloody waste of time. At that point (I lived in pennsylvania,) I stopped going to High School and started officially "homeschooling." That was the legal term, effectively I was going to community college for my junior and senior year. PA has this awesome thing where you can get an eqivilency diploma of HS, (a commonwealth diploma,) after you earn 30 college credits. ( I think not going to HS was the best decision I ever made.)
The last semester of my "senior" year I stayed in France as an exchange student.
Currently I am going to Earlham College in Indiana, but to be honest I am thinking seriously of dropping out after this school year. I want to just live my life, and I feel like college is a very coddoling (sp?) and kindof "elitist."
Anyway, I just wanted to offer my support and sncouragement to anyone trying to get by in a non-conventional way... I am a big advocate of it, you don't need to follow the plan that's set out for you to have a good one.
