Ive been in school since I graduated high school in 03, I've never had a break at all. Spent one year at a major university when I was 19 and completely wasted the opportunity by partying and not going to class. Spent another year getting the prereqs for nursing school which I never really wanted to go to but I did it anyways because it made my parents happy. Went through 1/2 of the program and the other day I finally decided to quit wasting my time and my parents money. Basically I've gone from living comfortably and rent free to being completely on my own so that I can pursue my real passion. I won't go into what it is that I'm interested because Id rather not defend myself from OT (its nothing gay like hairstyling or anything) but even though I'm completely on my own now I feel happier and more liberated than I ever have in my life. Has anyone else gone through something like this? Am I insane for giving up a free ride to college even though it wasn't what I wanted to do?
