Hi everyone, I'm 24 and would like to try going to college again. I've been there for a few spotty semesters throughout my YA life. And I'd really like to actually get a degree but honestly, I feel so old and stupid compared to how I felt even just the few years ago since high school. A lot has happened in my life and I dont really know how to be a student anymore, but I know that all I want to do is learn. I feel like I'll be out of place in a classroom of younger students, that are probably more aware and up to date than me. I was smart in grade school, but I've become, well, honestly quite dumb compared to that me. Idk how to even prepare to start studying and learning and "studenting" again..
I’m the very same. Consider these times discovering yourself. Don’t be hard on yourself. There’s this controversial saying “You’re not meant to do the thing they do, but they are not meant to do the things you do” I’m still needing to complete my high school diploma.
I've never heard that saying. It actually made me feel a little better.. is it possible to get a diploma? I dropped out Sr. Year [regrettably...] and got my GED about two years later. It felt great to hold that paper even if it's not the traditional way.
