I-dropped-out

anonymous asked:

Hey, I just dropped out of school two days ago because of mental health and it was the best desicion I ever made. For some people school just isn't the best place and that's ok.

Yeah,,,

TBH the first time I considered wanting to be a movie critic I was in middle school but I dropped it after finding out they get paid jack shit. In high school, we had to look up stuff on a possible future career (at that time I was considering being a mortician) and one of my classmates wrote about being a movie critic and decided it’d be a shit job because of how most critics are crammed in a room to watch a movie on a small screen and that sounded really unappealing to me

After a few experiences in college, I realized I legitimately wanted to be a movie critic. I just got out of my first legit/professional press screening and I have never loved an experience more and I sincerely hope? I can continue this?

I may have cried over this already

anonymous asked:

kind of out of the blue, but do you have any tips for getting through college? i'm only in my first semester and i already feel like dropping out, and the work never ends.

What helped me the most was I did shorter bursts of work each day rather than cramming all of it within 1-3 days every week. I never did this because I never got into the habit of doing it in the first place, but writing a weekly/monthly schedule of the assignments you have to do/when you’re going to do them alongside their due dates probably helps even more.

and this won’t be helpful atm cause it’s already halfway through the fall semester but it might help a lot once you register for classes in the spring - if your core classes are a lot of work choose electives that are known to be super easy and with less of a work load. And depending on your major - I wouldn’t recommend going above 15 credits, unless you have a lot of free time and you’re not working.

Im a twin flame, and I have pretty much fully ascended. I have no identity anymore, and I cannot function properly in the 3D world. I'm only 17, and I'm a way it ruined this life for me. Nothing is enjoyable as I feel I have already experienced everything there is to experience. I don't like talking to anyone anymore because no one is on the same frequency as "me" anymore. My vibes are too high. I had to drop out of high school because it was literally driving me mad. I have no idea what to do.

“I have no idea what to do.” 

You do. If you’ve ascended to the point that you say you have, then you know what to do now. I understand what it feels like to literally feel like the third dimensional world doesn’t have a place for you. Like the people you meet and the society they’ve created and the paths/behaviors/ideas that are seen as “normal” here just don’t apply to you in the slightest bit and spending time trying to assimilate into it may send you mad. I get it. But, here’s the thing - after the third dimension, there’s the fourth. And after the fourth, there’s the fifth. And so on. There’s always a next level.

There’s no such thing as having “fully ascended,” really. You’re not finished. You’ve just awakened to the point where you see this world through a different lens, and you’re on a different frequency. But that frequency can still be raised. You can still go higher. You’re young, and ascension never stops either way. That’s why we as indigo children are here, to help others to grow and to help ourselves to ascend. So, what you should do next is go higher. How did you get to where you are now? How did you ascend to this point? Try to meditate on what you did and how you’ve reached this. Do that some more and try to get to the next level. If you feel like you’re on a 4D consciousness right now, aim for 5D. Keep going. Keep rising. It never stops. That’s what life is about. Upward ascension until, finally, you ascend so high and your frequency becomes so high that you become God again. 

In the process, though, try not to dissociate from this world. Like I said, I know what it feels like to not have a place here. However, you won’t be able to ascend any further if you no longer enjoy life. Apathy restricts spiritual development. Think of your state of consciousness as the vehicle that will allow you to enlighten others. Maybe your soul mission is to help the rest of the world ascend to the level that you’re on, which is why you don’t fit in. Which is why you had to drop out. It’s because you’re supposed to be an example to others of what they can be, of how they can release themselves from the system if they want to. You were born for a reason, after all. Your soul didn’t just happen to land here. You chose to be here. Why? You can remember. Meditate.

you're one of the most positive blogs and just Good, and I'm not sure who else to go to? if this makes you uncomfortable go ahead an delete this ask, I understand, but I've recently dropped out of school due to mental illness and I'm just feeling. aweful about everything. do you have any advice?

Well, there’s a few things to remember when you drop out of school.

1) Your reasons for dropping out are valid.

Whether it was because of stress, or taking care of a sick family member, or school just wasn’t working out for you – all are good reasons. So yes, dropping out for your own mental health is definitely a good enough reason. School isn’t for everyone, and it’s definitely NOT suited for the mentally ill. But that’s the public education system’s fault, not yours.

2) It isn’t the end of the world!

It can definitely feel like it. You’re expected to complete school, and you’ve just assumed you would, so when you drop out, you don’t really know what to do. Where are you supposed to go from here? Well the bright side is that you have a LOT of options.

There’s been so many people who’ve dropped out of school, just to go on and do great and memorable things. So it’s definitely possible to still do the things you wanna do in life!

3) You can always get your diploma or go to college later!

It may seem like once you drop out, that’s it. You can never go back. But you can! Maybe not now, or even years from now, but you can always go back to school if it’s something you really want or need to complete. And if you can’t go back due to a physical illness or disability, there’s always online courses!

4) Put your health first.

Don’t panic and start trying to plan out your life all at once. Allow yourself to feel bad about what happened! Grieve about dropping out. Worry about the future. Let all those bad feelings happen so that you can move on, and be in a better place when you do figure out what you’re gonna do next.

I wish you all the best, and I hope you can start to feel a little more mentally well without the constant stress of school. I believe in you! 💖

I think I've decided to drop out of college and I'm going to get a job and save my money and buy a camper. I think that it's my destiny. That God didn't put me here for such small reasons like to go to college when I hate it and don't know what I want to do. I think I'm just wasting my time and money. But I'm terrified all at the same time to jump into the void.

do what you gotta do to be happy. that’s it. be good to people and do what you gotta do. there’s nothin else to it.

anonymous asked:

I can't do college, either. I dropped out. I hope it improves for you, but even if it doesn't, I hope you know you're not alone in this.

thank you

my parents do have a strong mindset on me going so I really don’t think i even do have the option of dropping out. i always believed college was not needed in life, but they believe it. 

if anything, i am trying to get only an associates degree. nothing more. i do not want any more school after i get that degree. i can’t handle anymore.

Hey guys. I’m glad to be finally posting my “mental breakdown survival guide”. As you know I struggle a lot with mental health, and so I have been through a lot of breakdowns. So many that I actually dropped out of university after 3 weeks in 2016 and had to take the whole year off. Because of this, I’ve made it my mission to help others with mental health issues as much as I can, so you don’t have to go through what I’ve been through.

Anyway, here is my guide. I tried to keep it general, and actually useful. If you have any questions or additions please feel free to add them.

And as ever, if you want to talk to me about studying with mental illness or want to see a post on a specific topic, please feel free to message me.

“My older brother was my hero growing up.  Everyone called him ‘Jise.’  He was this hip-hop dude.  People loved him, especially the girls.  Everyone knew when he walked into a room.  I was the opposite.  I blended into the crowd.  I was quiet.  I made straight A’s.  I liked comic books and action figures.  So I always looked up to him.  He was murdered one night in 1989.  Somebody shot him.  I was fifteen at the time, and I just kind of gave up.  I thought our family was curs…ed.  I always had this feeling that I was up next.  So it was like, ‘What’s the point of being good?’  I dropped out of school.  I started hanging out with the wrong crowd.  We started robbing people.  I never actually took anything myself.  I just tagged along for the adrenaline high.  Even at my lowest, part of me was always the same good kid.  I always held down a job.  I wrote poetry.  I kept dream journals.  Whenever we were getting into trouble, my friends would always tease me.  They’d say: ‘This isn’t you, man.  Why are you here?’  Hip-hop saved me.  It gave me a voice.  I started doing open mic nights.  I took all those dream journals and turned them into lyrics.  I joined a group called The Arsonists.  We toured all over Europe.  We pressed a lot of records.  Of course I always held down a second job.  My proudest moment was when they wrote about us in The Source.  My stage name was ‘Jise,’ in honor of my brother.  It was like I’d gotten us both there.”

I’m not going to be active here for a while, Rocky the bearded dragon was stolen a few days ago on the 27/9 (or 9/27 for Americans I think?) & I’m not really coping well with this. It’s all I can think about, but I’m not ready to discuss it at length. 

I think I’ve mentioned here before that I’m in the middle of moving house, I got a new job offer I had to take (my dog & ferret aren’t doing so well, I was feeling hopeless in my college course anyway & I decided to drop out so I could afford the veterinary care they’re going to need) but it’s hours away from Dublin & I don’t drive, so I’ve slowly been moving the pets down on the bus because it has sockets, so I can plug in their heat mats & keep them warm on the trip. My girlfriend is still at the old flat for now because we haven’t found new accommodation yet & most of the reptiles are at the old flat & still need care obviously. I’m staying at my parents house for now & between working full time, house hunting & travelling back & forth from Dublin to pack.

I’m so ashamed to say this, but I was so tired on the bus that I fell asleep, & Rocky was stolen from my bag. He was the only thing they took, he definitely didn’t escape as his travel container was taken too. I’m doing everything I can to get him back, but I feel so hopeless. 

I keep telling myself that even if I never see him again he’ll be resold to someone who’ll be able to take care of him. He’s not like other beardies, he needs special care. Maybe they’ll take him to a vet that will explain to them what his needs are.But I know how silly that sounds. 

People have been so kind about this, kinder than I deserve, so far 207 people have shared a facebook post about him in the hopes that someone will see someone attempting to make some quick cash off him or something gross like that & he’ll be recognised & returned to me. It’s an island, the reptile community here is pretty tight knit & Rocky has to be the only beardie in the country with a hunchback & dwarfism. So in a wierd way, maybe he’s very lucky he was born just the way he was. 

I don’t know, I just want my little Rocket goblin back

Client: My internet has dropped out! I don’t know what has happened! One minute it was working fine, and now…nothing!

Me: Okay, I’ll come have a look.

I walked into their office, plugged their Ethernet cable back into their laptop, and walked out.

No words were exchanged. It was never discussed again.
