    I'm turning twenty in a month, and seeing as I didn't do as good as I had planned (got a D+ in one of four classes) this semester, that means I've dropped out of college, twice. Well it's not official, but I'm stressing out just the same.

    If you're over 20, please tell me what you were doin back then.

    23 tomorrow.

    At 20 I was starting my 2nd college, I'm at my third now. 70 something credits, getting there.

    This semester was terrible, 3.2 gpa, now factor in two F's and two D-'s.

    School isn't life, it will be over soon enough, I also have trouble remembering that sometime.

    My dad put it best when he said, "Do you know what they call a Med School grad with the lowest GPA?"

    Most schools put you on academic probation and give you time to bring your grade up. Just because you gota D+ doesnt mean you have to drop the fuck out.

    That D+ is the kiss of death, since I'm on academic probation already. Thank god I've got tons of work this summer so I don't have to think about it but I may be starting over again in a year. How how are are you you, you'd be stressing too if you combine failing school with a total cash deficit of $50k.

    When I was 3 weeks away from turning 20 I quit the band and went to school for a couple semesters. Then I quit college. Not for grades though, unbelievably, at that point I was on the Dean's List. Anyway I quit school in Alabama and moved to Tampa and started working at a nightclub doing lights, that lasted a few years. Also when I was 20 I got hit by a train and the day after my hospital release I went to Lollapalooza (the first one), so it was a busy year...

    lets see when I was 20, I was pulling 4.0s in college, working part-time, doing mad drugs and pills and having my roomates or random homeless guys/college kids buying me natural ice 12 packs and other cheap budget beer... and being on probation, doing community service and doing moderate amounts of graf...

    going to college in Boston rocked... i contemplated dropping out of college many times.. just stick with it, don't slack... treat it like a job... do your thing but just get up every day and go to class then hit the library for a few hours... college is pretty easy unless your taking engineering or soemthing

    At 20 I was jumping state because of warrants, dealing with friends dying, doing mad drugs, selling even more drugs, going to school and skipping class to sleep in the library.

    Funny. The only thing I still really do out of all that shit is skip class to hang out in the library... except now when I do that I'm actually reading or working on something.

    Don't stress. You've gotta fuck up to learn... or something equally as corney.
