    All you had to do was volunteer in a local community eco program, reading program, ESL program @ local library to have social balance. No one explained this @ college registration? Called being “human”.
    Use your heart, and you may be able to prevent it from seizing in your chest and killing you. You are not a machine. Lesson learned.

    I teach at a community college. I heartily agree that a person should not be in college if he or she is not really prepared or committed to being there. Even as a college prof dependent on my enrollment, I have to say there are people better off doing something else first and coming back to school later.

    I’m wondering, though, if maybe these are age and experience issues more than school issues. I suspect everyone in the 18-22 age range (“traditional college age”) is having to confront these same things whether they’re in college or not. There’s a certain “welcome to the real world” shock that everyone goes through in their twenties, no matter what the education level.

    Besides, think about all the instructors you had in college. Are those really the kind of people you want to teach you relationship skills? People like me? Fuggedaboutit.
