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.

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.

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).

None of the girls here are worth a long-term commitment and idk what to do

>tfw probably got a 19-20 on the ACT because brainlet

Looks like I'll never be a unifag anons.

What's the real reason you didn't take it? Did you just forget? Don't feel like you have to bullshit people. It's probably not that big of a deal for him to let you take. Uni professors in general don't really give a fuck.

Don't worry lad. Most of us going to uni go because of familial pressure anyway. There's plenty of good opportunities in the trades. If all else fails just use your brainletism as an excuse for sweet and comfy neetbux

Just say you're Native American. You could be president one day.

Go to a business school, so obv all the girls are pretty (and gold diggers).

My autism and my inability to talk to them makes me reeeeeeeeee

Can you post more uni wojaks?

It's not 2010-2014 anymore lad
Trades got mobbed and suffer the same issue of too many people now along with boomers holding onto their positions until death

Which stem majors have the most girls? Anything else than bio?

I have zero native American ancestry. I think you need proof of ancestry.

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.

Psychology is full of women, which says quite a bit about the field.

It's not stem though

Shit, you're right. Psychfags always get mad when you tell them that.

>have an exam tomorrow
>can't bring myself to study for it

>What's the real reason you didn't take it?
It's pretty stupid honestly, but its because I didn't know it was due last night. I received an email about it on Friday, but I didn't check. I also haven't attended the last 4 lectures.
>Don't feel like you have to bullshit people
I spent all of high school bullshitting my teachers, but I'll try to break away from that habit.

It can be. There's science-psychology which is more statistics oriented and social-science-psychology which is more "Freudian" and patholigizing Conservatives oriented.

About ready to kill myself. Haven't had any meaningful human contact since last semester. The only thing holding me back is that my frat would look bad

>tfw semester is starting in a week
I don't want to go back, bros. This time was bad enough, I went home in the middle of the exam period and have to retake every course from last semester because of this. I just want it to be over.

I'm so unhappy here. I don't know why the fuck I picked this path.

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

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.

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.


Im proving to myself that im a failure. I had three weeks to right a 5 page paper and i have 4 days left. Why did i think i was cut out for uni. Why are all the great careers locked behind a stupid degree.

I've started this, 3rd year. It's never too late

How are you in a frat and have no human contact?

If your college has an english tutoring center go there. Legit they get half your shit done for you because they have to deal with all the illiterate jocks

Are there any comfy, brain-dead jobs I can get with a CS degree?

I'm considering doing something like this once I graduate. I don't care if I have a salary much lower than the average CS graduate, I'm just not very ambitious

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.

it's not a lot and shit didn't use to close down when i was in school for that little unless we were getting at least a foot. but they've fucked up things with insurances, injuries, and school buses so they close earlier now. i just want to be able to sleep in more.

it's an urban area and things get really fucked up for parking and traffic, 15 minute ride taking 3+ hours just to get back home. i'd prefer to avoid that if i can.

I relate so much, user.

Just apologize and admit you fucked up. Nobody is perfect and taking ownership will give you the best chances.

>would be my last semester but i skipped a class all semester and ended up dropping it because I'm lazy af
Now i have to go another semester for 1 fucking class... I prefer school to working full-time so its w/e.

Last semester I got a C in my Speech class bc I missed the midterm and 2 journal entries out of forgetfulness. My GPA for that semester would've been closer to 4.0 had I done those assignments.

I will always regret.

Every year I just lose my will to continue the university, may drop the next year and finaly I will try to find a damn job

If shits bad, stay in. No need to risk your life over some basket-weaving course. I go to a regional campus, and everytime it snows they don't cancel, because the dumb fucks at HQ say "lol, what snow?". Fucking dumb.

Don't go to uni for women.

seconding 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.

Just roaming the campus like a ghost. So a normal semester...

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.

Dude 4 days is more then enough for a 5 page paper. I'm assuming double spaced, so its even easier.

environmental engineering lad

if they're being cunts about it then tell em to at least turn off the lamp.
if they need to use a PC for online work then make them get an RGB keyboard or any other backlit keyboard.
if they won't stop fucking your life up you can get your RA involved

you can do it user, I just bs'd a 3 page paper in only a little under 2 hours despite freaking out about it earlier. you just have to work yourself into the zone

2nded, bitches love flowers and shit

Without winter tires in an area where people aren't used to driving on ice/snow it's a big problem. Seriously winter tires make all the difference in the world.

Kinda makes me wish I hadnt done AAE which is 99% autistic men

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

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.

philosophy is a bunch of airheaded prattle, history is written by the winners, classics are mostly boring but i guess they wouldn't be around so long if they completely sucked

Fuck, user. Every single point except the one about internships applies to me. What are you studing? Math here.

pick one originally

I have nightmares about this

Have you seen the MBTI threads on here? Shits hilarious.

don't go to university if you're getting a useless degree and you don't even enjoy it

not that user i did math and i learned nothing. i learned a bit more in compsci but not really much.

What's AAE?

I hold retail in a much lesser regard and below me. I'm probably going to kms.

Try again and more interviewers. For internships it doesn't matter if you're awkward people still get 'em. Do more.
You'll make it.

Uh just get a note now, like tomorrow or something. If the doc asks why you didn' come in earlier, say you were too sick or couldnt get a ride to the medical center. Ask the doc to put in you were already sick a few days ago. A lot of docs should be amenable if you just explain your school/workplace requires notes even though you expect to get better alone

Haven't made it to uni yet, thinking about taking one class at a time at community college for a couple years to get my associates while I study cyber security at a certification training facility.

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 user
you might be able to drop classes if it isn't past the deadline yet.
worst case your school might have a grade replacement program where you can retake the course and the failed course won't count for your GPA

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 literally missed three quizzes for one of my Comp Sci courses cause I decided to skip on the days I thought I had nothing. I am barely keeping up because I decided to go ahead and play Resident Evil 2 since release. Hopefully I can get my shit together since tomorrow I have an essay due for some short story i never fucking read.

Can someone explain to me why uni threads get deleted so quickly while the r9gay, imouto, and fucking drugfeels threads last longer than they should? I just want a comfy space of my own. Isn't that the point of this board?
