Is it okay for college to not be right for me?

I come from what you could say a slightly upper middle class family. my parents dont make LOADS of money but enough to support me and my brother and to provide us with material things/vacations/trips. I've been in college now for a year and i really do hate it. I want to be successful-and am okay with not making as much as them-but i also do not want to be "poor" or a failure. i'm afraid that by not going to college everyone will look down on me and think i'm "Stupid" a "failure" "unsuccessful" or a "loser". I usually don't care about what people think of me-but i really can't stand being thought of like that. Is it possible that i can be successful and comfertable without going to college? I go to a private art college which is about 40,000 a year. I feel like i am p*****g money away if A. im not enjoying it and B. if i'm not doing well and C. if my passion for art/college is not even there. please help and be honest. Everyday is depressing because i dont know what i want to do with my life!

Don't mistake a temporary hard time for a something it's not. College doesn't make you a failure or non-failure. It's what you learn at college... More
