My story is a fairly common one. I didn't try my best in high school, ended up going to community college for two and a half years before transferring to a state school. This is my second semester living on campus and I'm about forty credits away from graduating.
At community college I thrived. It was my second chance. I had some amazing professors, I established meaningful friendships, and I learned a lot about myself. I don't feel like I'm getting much out of my experience here. My dorm room feels like a jail cell at times. I'm surrounded by acquaintances. I'm broke and lonely.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I'm contemplating dropping out, but I really don't know what I'd do with my life.
