I guess that makes sense. With GED you can go to college. Most of the dropouts I know were more like, "I hate school. Screw this. I'll just be a waitress for the rest of my life."
The only person I know off the top of my head who got her GED and planned on going to college is my friend from grade school who dropped out because she had a baby. She got her GED and planned on going to college when the baby was in kindergarden. But she just had another baby, so I guess she'll have to wait a bit longer.
Plus the idea of going to college because you can get a better job that way is bull. It's true, but it's not going to get me through school mentally/emotionally. You'd love college, Adriane. You get to be totally crazy and do whatever you want. And there's so so much to learn that they don't even offer to teach you in high school.
Of course... right now I'm saying college is fun. In a month when I have a paper I don't want to write or whatever-such-thing I'll be all, "I hate college! I don't wanna work!"
high school sucks. but you just have to stick it out and muddle through. It's not for everyone, I suppose. But truly, it's not for anyone. Everyone hates high school. But you just have to pick yourself up and keep on keepin' on until graduation.
