Convincing my dad I can't go back to school and I need to take a year off?
Okay, I am trying to transfer from Johnson and Wales to NC State. I need a Claculus credit (which JWU doesn't even offer so I had to take it at CPCC which I failed for reasons that are NOT my fault, and i missed the mark by .22%) my dad says that If I don't get into NC state (wich I can't right now) I would have to go back to Johnson and wales, BUT I CAN"T Weve had this argument all year, he keeps asking me why I don't want to go back to johnson and wales, well, here are the reasons Ive told him Its not a "Real" School, They have trimesters instead of semesters. State would be cheaper even with housing, I hate the 40min commute everyday, Everyone thinks im a chef(and they fucking advertise on tv, and they only advertise the chef side so everyone thinks if i go there i'm automatticly a chef) But more importantly, here are the real reasons I'm about to let loose on him if it turns out i did fail Calculus and the onlyway to get into state is to try again next year. 1.There are no hot girls at my school, none, all fat and black girls(No Offense) I'm not prince charming but I would at least like to meet a moderatly attractive girl. 2. I did'nt do anything in HS and I want a chance to do this in college but JWU dosn't do anything, they don't even have dances, and the few things they do have are impossble for a communter to find out. 3.I HATE being called a Chef. 4.They have a business dresscode, I WANT TO GO TO CLASS IN MY JEANS DAMN IT 5.Part of me wants to take a year off beacuse I'm younger then everybody and they all think i graduated HS early, I just want to be normal damn it, I want to do normal things, I want to go to a normal school, I want to go to a school that isn't one cramped building in downtown Charlotte, I don't' want a job placement center to stick me in Bank of America one fo the most evil companies on earth and the biggest reason is if I fail calculus and have to take it again (The summer class is already filled) it wont matter, if I go to JWU for a 3rd year i won't be able to transfer, ill have to go for a 4th year and now I have a barley accredited degree working for some shit hole in BOA and ill be called a chef for the rest of my life. and Ill regret everyday knowing I never experienced anything that a NORMAL college kid should experience Going here is the biggest mistake ive ever made in my entier life, if I don't get into state My life is ruined.
