Hey, I made this alt to post this because I'm a bit self concious, even when there really isn't any need to be. But that's not why I made this thread! I was looking for input on something that has kind of been making my life pretty stressful for the last year or so.
I'm a senior in high school with no clue what I want to do. I'm applying to colleges because that's what my parents expect me to do, but I don't know what I want to study. Furthermore, I am not very excited about schooling of any kind. I am pretty poor about doing my homework in school (which has led my GPA down to somewhere around 2.8) mainly because it is all really boring to me. I'm always told, however, that I just need to buckle down and do it, because better grades will get me into better colleges, which will allow me to do what I want more easily.
But there's the problem, of course. It doesn't motivate me because I don't know what I want to do. So the prospect of not getting into a college doesn't seem that horrifying, although it would be nice not to work for a few years. I don't know what I'm really asking for in terms of help or advice. I guess I'm just wondering if anyone else has felt a similar way, or was able to get past a similar feeling at some point.I don't know if I'll really get into any colleges, considering the sorry state of my GPA and not having many extracurricular activities, even though I did manage to get a 32 on the ACT. If that did happen I would probably just take courses at the local community college and take up a part time job.
Like I said, I'm not as sure about what I'm asking for advice on as I was when I started writing, but if anyone could put forth some words from the wise or relate to my problem, I'd greatly appreciate it.
