I’m having family issues, may y’all could give me some advise?
I’m a first year college student, and I was placed into a biology, chemistry, elementary functions, and comp 2 class this semester. It’s a rigorous schedule at this college and I’m regretting it. Originally, I told my parents I wanted to go to pharmacy school, but really my only reason for wanting that was because pharmacist made a lot of money without having to actually deal with sick people. I’ll be the first to admit that it was a terrible reason.
In the time I’ve been in college I’ve immensely disliked the sciences I’m taking. I’m just not good at them, no matter how hard I study. And then I feel like an idiot, as in high school I was the salutatorian of my graduating class.
Anyway, earlier I was home for the weekend and my dad and I were watch American Dad. One of the Adult Swim commercials mentioned that college students should go to pharmacy school, or something along those lines. The only reason I know is because my dad had me rewind.
I mentioned that I didn’t want to go to pharmacy school and that I’d rather be a teacher. He said that I couldn’t pay off my student loans on a teacher’s salary and not to close off all my options. There was lab work I could do.
I told him more forcefully that I didn’t want to be a pharmacist and he told me not to take lip with him.
I realize that he’s my father, but doesn’t he see how unhappy the classes are making me? I mean, they’ve made me literally cry several times. They make me feel stupid. I actually nearly gave myself a concussion a few weeks ago because I was beating myself up about continuously making less than good scores.
I mean, I try. But I don’t want to be a pharmacist :(… And I just started crying again. ****.
