I’m 18 and live with my father. I’m going to community college at the moment, and in order to stay in his home, one of the conditions I must meet is that I have to be pursuing my bachelor’s degree. I first tried nursing which I was extremely passionate about, but I was not making good enough grades to get into the nursing program at the 4 year college that I would attend next. I was making a C in anatomy when they said I had to have an A, and as a result I dropped out and now I’m going for a criminal justice degree, but have chosen this degree just so I’m doing something, so I don’t get kicked out. No other degrees interest me in the slightest. Criminal justice does slightly, but it doesn’t interest me that much. I though about doing an LPN program, as the grade requirements are not as strict, but my father won’t let me. I’m going to pursue a degree that I really don’t want, and I’m not looking to be a cop or anything, and my father won’t let me pursue my dreams. I feel so alone. I’m going to hate the rest of my life, and not to mention that I have an irrational fear of becoming homeless. Criminal justice jobs are hard to get and my dad will throw me out if I don’t have a job before graduation. I don’t want to live like that.
