You've been in the hardest part of life and it's DONE! You only have 2 more years, you can do it! I realize being a teen is hard too but you really are through the worst of it! Hang in there!

Hating School

Vickey and others who don't like school:

I don't know how long ago this was posted, so maybe this advice is to late for her.

If you are in the 10th grade and old enough to drop out of school--THINK AGAIN. DON'T STOP READING, please finish!

What can you do without a high school diploma? Wait tables, wash dishes, collect garbage. Someone has to do these, but do you?

Perhaps you can find someone who would help you study for the GED so that you don't have to actually "go to school". I work with students that have disabilities and I know how the "social climate" can be a stress for them since they don't "fit the mold".

Also, check to see if there is a trade school close by that you can take some courses at instead of actually going to your high school. Sometimes these trade schools work with high schools and the student can get high school credit by attending a trade school. I know we have a school like that.

What do you like to do? How can you turn that into a job? Or how can you use your passion on a job? Find a business where you can be an "apprentice" . Without pay (or very little) ask if they will start training you. Sometimes doing something you love will help you be more motivated to get the schooling you need to have a permanent job at what you like.
