School atmosphere is not for everyone but it is not a reason not to try to excel yourself in a school environment. I'm not giving you some guilt trip about some children who wanted to school but cannot due to lack of financial support, however I think that you should make most of what education can provide you. You have a chance to be educated formerly and I say you go for that chance since formal education is one of the qualification that some companies look for in a job seeker. Education can help you to succeed but you also have to put some effort in your studying. If you really cannot afford education, try for some alternative education that won't take too much financial demand. But if not, you should pursue and end your education with some achievement like finishing high school and learning some skills that you can use for livelihood.

Hey its usual but please think positively. As you were absent for so many days it will take some time to feel ok and start your education back. But believe me it will all get settled with time. Please be determined and think that you have to complete your education. First of all you have to make your mind prepared for this and you see once you become determined nothing can stop you.

I had the same thing in my 3rd year of college - I was just so tired of going to school! Dropping out was definitely not a good decision, but one way to think about it is it is hard to get a job without graduating high school and you are so very close. You can do it. Now, don't let anyone force you to go to college. College is good, don't get me wrong, but I went and didn't know what I really wanted to do with my life. In the end I changed my major three times and ended up graduating with something I really can't use. College is great if you have a goal and know what you want to do. Take some serious time to think about what you want to do and if you need college to get there. I graduated with a Bachelors and I work at Walgreens feeling like my four years in college were a waste of my time.
