I just dropped out of Uni (college for the Americans) I was 4 weeks in and now my family is so disappointed in me that I haven't gone home. It just wasn't something I wanted to be doing for years to come. To make things worse I was a little bit cocky after being put down by my parents that I told them to shove their opinions in a paper shredder. It felt warranted since they said I don't have 'permission' to drop out. For the record: I'm 20. I live with my parents out of financial hardship (no time for work with my daughter and study). I'll be starting a different course next session. so.. do you think I did the right thing??
