    I'm flunking both advanced chem and my public speaking lab.icon_sad.gif
    I just got in over my head, school's not for me.....i don't go to the labs cause I'm scared as shit to speak in front of people. Chemistry is bullshit, my instructor made me take the exam even though I was out for an entire week when I had major surgery on my cornea. Nooooow my dad's gonna beat my ass (literally! like he will physically hurt me) when my grades come out...

    I just really been thinkin....suicide (if I could find a less painful way to go) isn't so bad. Like I have nothin goin for me. No friends, guys, or anything...getting through each day is a chore/hell

    Ok first off...NO SUICIDE...LIKE EVER! icon_evil.gif

    Secondly, talk to a guidance counselor. I'm sure there are other programs that would better for you. It is not the end of the world. If need be take a year off or push back your graduation date.

    As for family, you better have group meeting with your counselor if you're afraid that your dad will beat you.

    Its not the end so breathe!

    Yeah, seriously, don't even think about suicide. That is a permanent solution to a temporary problem--and its far from a solution, really. Your dad shouldn't be hitting you. If he does, that is assault and you can press charges. But beyond that, you just need to see a guidance counselor and get this sorted out. It may take some time but that is what life is about. Many of us fail at one thing and succeed at something else. But you have to give yourself the chance to figure it all out. As someone old enough to be your grandpa, I can assure you there's plenty of opportunity ahead.

    You want to kill yourself because you failed two classes?
    That shouldn't even be an option.

    If school isn't for you then maybe you should take some time off. Maybe go back in a few years (or not at all).

    Suicide is nature's fail safe switch and should only be used when your life is so damaged there's no way back -after all you can only use it once and theres no coming back from it. I don't think now is the right time to flip that switch and for most people there never is a right time.

    bonapart01 saidsuicide helps


    Please ignore him. I actually thought I had him on ignore and I RARELY do that unless someone rubs me the wrong way over and over again.

    Look at this as a learning opportunity. Do you really want to tell your nephews, nieces, or children that you flunked out of college because you were afraid to speak? We all have things we are afraid of and usually much later in life you'll want to overcome it. Unfortunately I think you have to make a decision RIGHT NOW. Find your professors office hours and tell them the situation -- I doubt you're the first to be nervous.

    There was an English course that I hated raising my hand to talk in, but the grade was more important -- participation was a major part of the grade.

    Even if you don't want to continue, please finish the semester by doing the best you can. The courses you pass will always count -- unless you transfer to a college that doesn't accept the courses.

    You're young, you're probably nervous about what direction you're headed in, BUT until an ah-ha moment comes to you -- just stick to what you're doing man. How many credits are you taking? Maybe if you redo the course your father won't be so pissed. If he is in fact paying for it, usually the price stays the same once you're a full time student. So whether you take 12 or 16 credits it will be the same amount for that semester. Also you should've just dropped this course way ahead of time if you didn't like the professors methods.

    Yes, don't even consider suicide, that is not the solution.

    Why do you have to be such a dick? Is your life really so pathetic that it makes you feel good to say shit like this to someone else? Jesus, and I though my life was lame. What the hell is your problem? If you pix are you, you're a young, attractive, full of life guy, but saying shit like this to a teenager who is feeling insecure and down about his life right now is just plain sick. You obviously have serious problems and need to grow the fuck up.

    You probably shouldn't joke around just in case the guy is serious about considering suicide.

    jmusmc85 saidOh suck it the fuck up and stop being a wuss. icon_rolleyes.gif

    Just decide....do I want to go to school or not? If you really want to, stay. If you don't, then don't.


    Don't rely on your parents to pay your way for everything. Maybe you just need to get a job. Join the military. Anything but suicide.

    You are being a little spoiled princess in wanting to kill your self bc you failed a few classes and are afraid of daddy. #firstworldproblems
    And, jmus, I know you mean well but tact and diplomacy obviously aren't your strong suit. The boy is 19 years old, from a small town and probably has never been anywhere or done anything. You, by comparison, are grown up, an adult. It wouldn't hurt you to act like one on occasion. I like to kid around, too, but there are times and places its just not appropriate--and when someone is contemplating suicide is one of them. Tough love is fine but there has to be some level of mutual respect for that to have any weight. Without it, it is just abuse.

    jmusmc85 saidAnd here's me being serious for a moment: talk to your instructors. Most want to see students succeed. I know that when I wasn't doing too well in class I would just have a talk with them after hours on ways to improve/make up my grades. Almost always will they be able to work with you.

    So yeah, I would def. take the time to explain the situation. It most likely will help...icon_biggrin.gif


    I also agree with Jmusmc85's earlier comment. College isn't for everyone and there are tons of college grads with "worthless" degrees as in they could've just been working from the get-go without college loans etc. Yes, it's a great experience, but I could move to a new country for a year and have new experiences too.

    I love and excel in an academic environment, which is a far cry from the real world. Just realize you do have other options. There are guys that take up being an electrician, plumber, or mechanic and they love what they do -- while making a decent living. I actually read a lot of times their net-worth is higher than lawyers, because they don't have to spend as much money on keeping up appearances.

    If you don't know what you want to do college isn't a bad route, but it's not the only route. I know the owner of a dance studio who never uses her degree. She could've used the money, her parents saved for her college, as a down payment on a new house.

    Sustenance saidI made 80K per year between 1999 and 2004 all on a college certificate program in Graphics Technology. It landed me an account with the largest manufacturer of vintage chevrolet products in the world. They sold over 11,000 parts. Very prestigious company.


    To bad you can't use all that money to buy a clue.

    Hey!! I have a worthless degree that I'm not putting to use....icon_cry.gif


    But you still have your hair! Something tells me I'm sure you made several guys on campus very happy (vice-versa) so I know in your book that isn't a complete waste. I think it's great you're comfortable with your sexual side.

    My buddy told me I should be exploring more in my 20's... He's also in his 20's and he's kind of sexually liberated and I honestly respect him as a whole. He asked while we were watching Orange Is the New Black if I'd visit him in prison and I would. I actually went to visit him in the hospital once. He makes me so happy.

    Well I have bonapart on ignore, and i thought I had anoriginal on ignore too - will quickly remedy that oversight.
    But suicide is not the solution - it's rather permanent - and if you're catholic, you can't get to heaven, and if you're a hindu, you'll probably be reincarnated as a cockroach. I seriously doubt you are actually considering suicide.

    But like jmusc said - make up your mind - If you don't want to be in school, get out. Or take a break for a year or so, while you get your head together. Maybe you don't want to be taking the courses of study you are in. Work for a year or two or sign up for the military (safer now that the wars are over.) Join the Peace Corps.

    Or study harder, and complete the semester you are in before you make a final decision - get some tutoring help if you are in over your head.

    whats with all the suicide talk on this board lately? its really not funny. i hope you are not being serious.

    Spend more time on your schoolwork, and you wont fail. You are a very good looking guy. You have that going for you, that i can tell you - that's not true about everyone. If you spend more time on homework and go to your labs you are going to do just fine.

    PM me the link lol! I think every RJ member should share all the naughty videos they've done, we can start with the pretty ones and end on the bears! It will be a natural video progression, kind of like puberty. We'll go from smoother toned guys to hairy big guys.

    Why do you say you have no friends or guy?
    You made several topics saying how the ex-QB or your high school became your new BFF and you guys cuddle and stuff...
