I didn't seriously go to college until after I did a hitch in the U.S. Army. The first time I went I was right out of high school and WAAYY too unmotivated for it. I spent all my time at the beach instead of going to class. Living in Daytona Beach can be a bad thing when you are young & dumb.

When I flunked out my old man broke my plate, bent my fork and kicked me out and told me the best thing I could do was to go down and see the man about joining the service.

The next time I went it was on my dime and by then I had pulled my head out of my *** enough to take it seriously. Also by then I had enough game that bagging babes was like shooting fish in a barrel.

Gonna agree with old man winter: When you are older (and it is on your dime) you will take it much more seriously. Hard to justify failing a semester (wasting a ton of $$$) when it is coming out of your pocket.

Go back and do it. More education will never hurt you, unless you get some worthless liberal arts major.

Yeah, Don't bother with college unless you have a serious degree/career you want to pursue. Some people claim any degree is better than none but that isn't proving true so much anymore. What you know, past work experience/past wages can play a much a bigger role. Also, the Lollipop guild doesn't require a degree so I don't know why you are bothering.

My sister went to college right away, got 2 degrees by the time she was 22.. did nothing with them, didn't help her at all, then she went back at 32 to become a doctor. she should be done in 2.5 years. Her husband paid for the school though... so no debts out of medical school will be nice for them.

Agree, later is better. I am almost 30 and in college for my second run. The first time I went I did not finish because I was young and using the parents money. Now I pay for it and I take it way more serious (only serious enough to obtain a decent GPA). I am going for a degree in skill trades at the moment and then will transfer into a Bachelors program afterwards.

Yup, I got got my Associates at 19, but my GPA was only a 3.0, went back at 26, now I take it way more seriously, don't really waste time hollering at girls though, too focused on my grades, rocking a 3.8 at the moment and that's because at the beginning I was a bit rusty, been rocking all A's lately.


Even though I don't try to talk to girls, they are easy as hell to holler at, never have any problem striking up a conversation.

If I was starting over again, I'd learn how to weld real well and get on the next thing smoking to North Dakota or Texas.

I graduated with a 2.7 GPA after 6 years of college for a 4 year degree.

I probably would've done better if I went later in life, but this worked out alright I guess.
