Choosing Not To Go To University, how Do I Deal With My Choice And Where To Go

Jon (@necroking14) 8 years, 7 months ago

so i’ve recently made the decision not to apply to university or college
i realize what im doing is very risky, but i can’t find myself taking any other path
i feel equal parts free and terrified
i want to hopefully pursue music in the form of djing and production
but im also very young and not sure how the “real” world works
so can anyone explain to me what course of action i should try and take in 6 months when i graduate from high school

any helps is very appreciated, if you too the time to read thing, thank you

@necroking14 leave the fuck college and university, those degrees are meaning less if your passion is music, my real cousin ,see his profile his parents fuck his head and force him so much for university education, but he did,t join college and he is a guitarist now , now he is having his own band, earning so much from music industry, play in live shows, malls and give private coaching too, he took his talent to the extreme , and he gained so much respect and money by that, university education was going to be waste of time for him, and once u rock in your field and gain success , u can get a university degree later on, its now running away, after giving 5 years to music, my cousin is now doing Majors..

” Listen to all but do what your Heart and head told u to do, because even if u fail, u will have Pride, at least i had done, what i want and fuck everyone ” take care

A person who doesn’t go to college can have just as a fulfilling, if not better, life than a person who does go to college. During the early stages of our lives we’re continuously lead into believing that success and happiness are achieved by going to college, getting a degree, then getting some high paying job. This isn’t how it is at all. Getting a degree does not automatically guarantee success or happiness. For the most part, normally in the pursuit of a degree, people usually start accumulating thousands of dollars in debt. So in terms of “riskiness”, I’d say not going to college straight out of high school is a lot safer financially.

As for what to do after high school, simple – Live. Work towards the things your really want to do.

When you make a choice in life, you’re not ‘dealing with it’, you Accept It… don’t look back and wonder what could have been because that thought can become a cancer that will eat at you day and night.
Follow your Passion, period!

Find the best people who are doing what you want to do. Ask them what they did to get there and what they would have done differently. An experienced mentor is especially powerful because connections are essential for the type of progress you are looking for.

This is my first year at university. I finished high school last year. These last week I have been looking at my financial situation and my financial needs. Well every way I looked at it I would need to take a good amount of debt and the fact that I would not have a good paying job. This summer i will gather up enough cash and go travelling in the fall. I will look into trades jobs wich pay much higher when I get back.
