How is everyone doing?

good. final semester and only one real serious course, the rest are 100s so ive been playing a lot of etrian odyssey and drinking lately

Got a group project that's going to absolute shit, bros. Started with a group of 4 (myself included). One of the fuckers dropped out without telling any of us in advance so his share of the work got dumped on us. Another guy is just completely ghosting us; he reads everything in the group chat but never responds or does any of his share of the work. The only other guy besides me does do his fair share, but he's thick as shit so I end up having to correct/edit most of what he does.

This is such bullshit. College meme is absolutely not worth it.

>>50921720
Just apologize to your professor and ask if you can take it for partial credit or if there's something you can do for extra credit.
>>
>>50921820
I thought about telling him I was very sick over the weekend (which I was, and still am), but he'd surely ask for a doctor's note (which I don't have).

Most Trades are a meme and you still need to be decently smart for decent trades like electrician. I might be able to get NEETbux because I have autism (asperger's) and ADHD. But I have no employment history and have a wealthy family so I'm not sure. Neet or minimum wage is probably the only option for someone like me.

fuck me. i'd consider grad school but imo it's just an excuse to not work for another 3-7 years and slave away at schoolwork. the few people I've talked to about that either feel the same way or are clearly hiding it, considering that the salary gains vs loan costs aren't anywhere near worth it

Did you do any internships anon? If so you could ask the professors you researched with for some connections. They sometimes are a ton more connected than they look

>>50923173
Just say you were sick and therefore forgot about the test. Apologize for missing it and ask if there's any way to get at least partial credit. If he says no, then you're just back to where you started, so you have nothing to lose.

>>50921720
Start treating Uni like a job. Get on a consistent routine, eat right, sleep well, go to the gym, wake up early and crank out 8hrs a day and then chill. Stop procrastinating and letting the whole rigmarole of uncertainty stress you out. Stop tying your self worth to your grades, positive feedback and recognition by others. Focus on being better in mind and body a little everyday. Focus on getting educated and skilled. Fuck thots and be ascetic. Make it a mission to graduate in 4 years. Don't let procrastination be an option. Have a core focus but also a breadth and depth of knowledge outside your chosen area. Don't downplay writing skills and other non-STEM subjects such as philosophy, history and classics. I did literally the opposite of this and I am warning you.

>>50924813
I tried to get internships but failed at that. That was the issue I was having before, so now I'm just saying fuck it and trying to find a job. There is a required "career course" for one of my majors that I took a year ago, but it was completely fucking useless. Some of the speakers gave conflicted advice, and honestly I'm probably just going to go to my uni's career center later.

It did nothing but piss me the fuck off because of how those assignments were structured. One assignment had you turn in your resume, and you'd get criticism/improvements that you could make to it, and everyone just got bitched at. One of the "Criticisms" that a classmate had was that she didn't have enough workplace references or past job experience, despite the fact that she was an international student that fled north korea or some other shithole like that when the assignment was for how to get a temp job in town at a place like McDicks.

Fuck team taught courses. I have no idea why the fuck my uni thought it was a good idea to have some courses have 7+ professors for a class like this, since it's a fucking meme idea that only works for certain gen-eds where having that many professors could actually be helpful.

the university reddit had people bitching about it once and it got swept under the rug by mods, and you bet your ass that a lot of us reported that class come evaluations.

I should add though that it is highly dependent on where you are looking. If you are going out to clubs to try and find a gf, you're going to find nothing but barsluts and trashy whores. That said, there is no guarantee that the quiet girl in the library isn't a whore either, but you get the idea.

Women should always be second to whatever your interests are.
e.g. If you go to a rock climbing club or DnD club or w/e because you enjoy it, then it's that much easier to find people that are worth your time.

Fucking awful, my semester started on January FUCKING 2nd and got a shit load of homework from the very first day so I stopped attending 2 different classes and essentially failed because my stupid fucking uni won't let me deregister/remove any classes until I'm in 5th semester and my major is full of self important little shits as teachers who want to make everything a problem to gain something or fuck over students and are constantly infighting and my classmates are all marxists who romantizice poverty even though they are poor themselves and I'm not 100% integrated because I come from a high end high-school and I hate it here and I can't even choose my teachers yet. Worst part is that I'm in a fucking meme degree because it's the only thing I can moderately do well in and I sort of like and STEM is extremely out of reach because I'm a brainlet and math and logic is beyond boring for me.

psychology or biology if you don't think psych is a real stem

>>50922679
>>50922696
>>50922960
>>50923847
it depends on the school and type of psychology. There's cognitive psychology focused on the nervous system/physical body which is pretty close to medical shit, and then there's psychology focused on disorders and what usually causes them, and how people live with them. The only bullshit "psychology" if you can even call it that is shit like sociology and social work and even that depends; Social work and therapy can be a real science but the problem is that 99% of dumbfucks that do it aren't properly certified, which is why there are so many memes about people here going to a psychologist and getting nothing out of it.

then again I go to a based school where we learn proper psychology. I had one professor that got pissed anytime he saw people reference meme statistics like IQ and myers-briggs tests (aka 16personalities/ISTJwhateverthefuckyouare), since those are some of the biggest examples of bullshit psychology our there. They're practically horoscope tier with how bad they are.

it's my first semester at a shitty local college. i decided to give cs a go, since i didn't really know what else to take. i always figured a deeper understanding of computing would be pretty sweet. intended to do a year here, then transfer to a proper university. however, i feel like i'm dying. i cruised through highschool with honours, without an ounce of actual studying. stayed up late playing video games and shitposting, pretty much every night. now it's really biting me in the ass. always figured i was decent at math but i'm getting my ass handed to me. taking discrete and calculus. in hindsight, i probably overestimated my abilities. also taking english, which i fucking hate. i don't even know why i took it. at least i'm enjoying my introductory programming course, but it's almost too easy. i guess most introductory courses are like that. but fuck, i can't study for shit. easily distracted, always in a haze. never feel like i'm actually learning. I feel like garbage and i'm afraid i won't succeed in anything at this rate. i feel so fucking stupid. its been nothing but anxiety and stress. anyone else feel like this first semester? did the whole routine eventually start falling into place? Fuck.

your best bet is to set aside a small amount of time per day to working and increasing it every day so that you get better anon
you might be able to drop classes if it isn't past the deadline yet.

Dropped out recently, fucked up most courses but also didn't like any of them really. Luckily it's only my first year so not too much of a waste. Did throw away a couple years before this though. Have to start looking for a job soon till at least next school year since i moved out of my parent's house. Now I'm just sitting at home all day doing nothing feeling like shit. My last few normie friends were really worried about me drinking a lot (alone) so i promised not to anymore, and keeping to it. Doesn't make me feel better tho. Started a bit of reading recently to fill the time and it helps somewhat. And of course i can browse here all day.

>i cruised through highschool with honours, without an ounce of actual studying. stayed up late playing video games and shitposting, pretty much every night. now it's really biting me in the ass.

gen ed courses suck dick but it's best to get them out of the way as soon as possible.
>did the whole routine eventually start falling into place?
you have to learn to not be a lazy sack of shit. it took me over a decade to learn that because i had a similar high school experience. get ahead of your work, stay ahead of your work. games, 4chan, shitposting, group chats, none of that shit matters until your homework is done. get a physical planner, one with month and weekly/daily views. write down big dates on the month and your todos on the daily. if you keep writing the same shit on your dailies and still haven't done it, observe if you really are going to do it or want to do it. it's a good way to confront lingering issues in your life. you can still have leisure time but try to work it like pomodoro where you break and then go back to working. there's a lot of time you waste daily that could go towards getting shit done or studying.

the cs courses are definitely worth it later on, it feels great when you're only taking cs or major/elective courses. i would be wary of transferring to a different school. you are bound to get fucked over on credits and take longer to graduate. look into maybe doing research or working with some profs there if you're interested. after you start your career school doesn't matter as much. make sure you finish hard wherever you are. transferring and being around another group of people you don't know can set yourself up for failure. transferring also requires you to have so many courses done at their school to get a degree for it and you might have to retake some bullshit classes you're already taking.
>>
>>50928530
forgot to say, use a fucking 3-5 subject notebook to take notes. do not have your laptop or tablet open during class. pay attention and you'll be fine in math. electronic notes are not a substitute for pen and paper.
>>
>>50927377
i can drop a course by mid-march to receive a w (withdrawal) on my permanent record. but at that point i'm not getting a refund and i've wasted money. hardly seems worth it. to apply for university transfer i need 24 credits, so 4 courses per semester. if i drop a course i'll not only end up missing the application deadline due to lack of credits (mid-september, i was planning on taking courses over the summer to apply for the winter semester), i'll have to spend an extra semester at college, which only covers up to second year cs. transfer at my local universities is absurdly competitive. a gpa of 3.4 was the average for transfer students at my university of choice. even higher at the larger, more prestigious university. i'm so fucked. the biggest problem i'm facing is my ability to focus on a single task. whenever i'm studying for a certain subject, all my other subject and their respective assignments are constantly on my mind. i'm always on the edge and can't study, effectively. i can sit down for hours but it doesn't feel like i'm doing anything meaningful in terms of learning.
>>
>>50927297
best advice i can give you
is study all everyday
play games on the weekends to relax
don't let that chad stacy meme fuck with you in college
people don't give a shit about viriginity
they do however give a shit if you're only hobby is video games.
hang out with people
if you have an hour between classes
you should either spend it studying
or
hanging out with friends

thanks for the advice, anon. i'll grab a planner tomorrow. transferring is a necessity though, since my school only offers up to second year cs, but luckily the transfer system in my province is pretty straight forward and i've planned my schedule in a way such that it mirrors the courses i would be taking at the school i want to transfer to. it should be relatively smooth. i just need fantastic grades.

alright, good luck with that then. down south our county colleges sometimes get fucked by transferring to the state schools even if they get the associates. as i said, make sure you knock out whatever general requirements are necessary. look up the college you want to transfer to's diploma requirements to see how many courses and which you need to take there as some get very weird no matter how much everyone tells you "it's easy to transfer"

Holy fuck, how do I get good at seminars?
I read all the required reading but I'm too much of a brainlet and miss all the important talking points and I'm just too shy to be talkative and the professor thinks I'm an idiot for not participating in the discussions.

Getting my exam results this friday. Does anybody have experience with UK/EU universities? How likely am I to get the boot for shit grades during the first semester and bad exam results? Do I have a chance at redemption? How lenient are they to shit students? What happens in these situations? I am also scheduled for an ADD test, but that won't be soon, hopefully that will help a bit. I am an international student, if that matters (not from EU). Back home I got kicked out before I could finish the second semester and I am terrified of getting kicked out again.

this or just no private/stick with in-state schools that give you a lot of money

>>50940011
US but usually there's some form of appeal where you can speak with your advisor and it goes before a board review. you have to write a letter explaining your situation and a study plan for improving next time. you being international, there's probably a lot less lenience since they could fill your spot with hundreds of kids that will actually do their work. it doesn't seem like school is for you so you should work for whatever rich family member sponsored you.

how
>>
>>50921720
Went to first couple of lectures in my 2nd year and haven't been to any since. They're just so pointless when all the material's online and I hate sitting alone feeling like i'm being watched in lecture halls. I've got a group project where I do two presentations too which i'm dreading, haven't been to any of the group sessions yet, feeling like dropping out especially after my terrible attempts at exams last month.

>why'd you get fired
I was asking too many questions regarding the CAD program they used that I was supposed to know the answers to, which is true but I didn't want to make any mistakes so I asked them the same stuff every now and then.
Because of that I got into a little conflict with my superior and he had enough of me.
I wasn't really efficient at my task and the job kinda sucked anyway.
Pay was good but I probably won't get an employer's reference which annoys me the most.

depends on the uni. also depends on your medical history.

FWIW, I'm an overseas student currently intermitted from my UK uni for depression. I got approval to disregard my whole first year after doing virtually no work and attending no lectures or supervisions after first term. However, I had a long history of therapy and medication and was taken to hospital twice during lent term for suicide attempts. I also was recently diagnosed with narcolepsy, which will support my application to return.

I had to move out of college once my application to intermit was processed, and I will repeat the whole first year when I return. It's not in any way a decision to be made lightly, but if you are struggling with ADHD it may be right for you.

do you have a tutor/counselor you can speak with about this?

SQL exercises 1 & 2 due this Friday, didn't attend uni for 3 weeks because my ID was blocked so have missed every bit and piece of knowledge needed to complete those exercises.

Got work tomorrow, Thursday and Friday after class. Shityy night shift.


Got 25% for maths, basically failed and have to take retake for the biggest exam.

Idk how the fuck I got 5% for the exam which was worth 70% of the total module.

the point of having a roommate is to cut down on expenses and maybe be friends

The calc professor is a massive grown up autist (in only a slightly amusing way) who makes Monty Python and Rick and Morty references every ten minutes in his lectures.

feeling like i want to die, fren.

I got fucking mono, lost gains (what little there were), and now im sitting here contemplating my sanity. I just can't sit down and getshitdone and its harder and harder to nap because of an utterly fucked sleep schedule.

Flip side, I managed to get laid in the fall, but now I just want a peaceful relationship and it is such a fucking hassle. Texting, snapchat, all that bullshit, feels like a prerequisite for a relationship at this point, but I just cant find it in me to entertain the people who use it, ie: everyone. It might as well be a foreign language that I only know a few phrases in. Anyone got advice for snap/texting, generally?

It's all so tiresome

hey anon I'm about to go to sleep, but just know I believe in you. I am 31 and I am going to graduate with a bachelor's degree. I have been taking part-time classes at a community college for years and have been to jail 4 times, longer each trip. Just keep at it. You may have failed out of 3 or 4, but you still passed one. That's one more closer to getting your degree. Even though you've failed the class you've still picked up a little knowledge that might come in handy later. It's all experience for where you're headed, and I know you'll be just fine.

I love chemistry but I actually hate the classical physics. For some reason all the formulas look the same and the letters all mean different things in different contexts. It's so damn confusing. In organic I usually just write (whatever salt, anhydrous) and that's sufficient. But in physics mg could be milligram or mass x gravity. I hate it. I'm going to die this semester if I cant get over this stumbling block.

My point is that classical formula of physics is just boring as fuck, and all the dozens of formulas looked exactly the same way first glance. We cant just write (initial Velocity minus final velocity... whatever) and instead everything is variables and since the problems deal with the same issues my formula sheet looks like gibberish at first glance.
