It has been 2 years since I dropped out of my college.Eevery time when my family or friends ask me am I regretful for that?My answer is definitely no.Then think I am just pretending,just don't want to admit my "mistake",they think I was totally wrong about dropping out of my college. But no,I am not pretending.I am happy now,I 'd rather die than go back to college.I wasn't never happy at my college.I didn't like my major,and there was nothing I could do about it,it is very difficult to change your major in my college.So i just dreamed away all my times till one day,I couldn't tolerance myself anymore.So I ended it.Of course,my parents went crazy about what I did,I really disappointed them.But I didn't want to disappoint them anymore,college really wasn't not my way. Yes,I went through rather tough times the first year I dropped out of college.I was kind of lost,nowhere else to go,it's very hard for me to find a good job without a bachelor's degree.I never find a good job. Till one day I found out online earning.I think it's great.myLot is great,I want to improve my English here ,then I can be an interpretor or a translator in the future . Thank you guys for your time!Would you mind share your stories? Or give some advice?

I had planned to go to college for a bachelor's degree same as you did! When the time came, I stayed out for six months, then went to a medical assistant study program that only took nine months to complete, including on the job training! I still intended to take a few more classes as I grew older! I did not know about the internet until 1997, when I bought a webtv and found out how much I could learn online! I love it here and want to make some money, not too much expected but a little something to spend! There are many ways to live on less money. I grow fruits and vegetables whenever I can, make my own compost, and use freecycle.org to find items that we need or to give away items that we do not need anymore!

Your parents may think they know what is best, but you did the right thing if it was making you unhappy. They need to understand that you have to make your own decisions, and you have done a good thing by joining myLot and finding a way to earn money online. You will make your parents feel proud of you when you find work as a translator in future.
