I just took my first year at the University of Toronto and it was boring as hell and I didn't feel like I got anywhere with it myself. I'm planning to drop out of school to pursue things that I have a passion for, what do you guys think about school?

make sure that you can actually have a chance doing what you want

spending time at school when you dont want to will only cost you money, but get a plan

Just have a strong idea of what your passions are, and prepare to struggle. Nothing worth getting is easy to get

Andrew, you don't have to push your bitterness onto other people or do any name calling lol. We're not in highschool after all. I currently make money off of street dancing and that's what I do to raise money for my current projects. I saw no future in my program with what I was learning and I felt like a sitting duck. I've got my twin that I'm currently working with and a friend on some projects and I'm not going to let anything hold me back. I'm not saying school isn't important for some people, it's just not for me. Anyone else have any of their own experiences to share?

School's an easy path that I'm prepared to throw away, to make room for something unknown which I still need to create but I'm on my way!

@brown I'm from a decent family, I take care of myself and through dance I've gotten good opportunities. Thanks! and @miles wise words, and you're right. Something does not come from nothing.

@Pantic I'm 18 years old and I'm a bboy. This is what I do, and no, my passions are not rap music or photography. I'm using my passion to make money to fund my business, specifically being an entrepreneur. I know nothing comes easy, I learned all of that through my struggles with dance.

I'm just looking for some other perspectives of doing your own thing, is all guys

To be honest, most I can see you doing is opening up a studio or maybe getting on ABDC, but maybe with that studio you'll have a line of clothing, then get lucky and meet someone famous, then get your shot, etc. But if you're here for validation then you haven't really decided to dedicate yourself to the cause, if you're going to drop out then drop out my dude.

Finish college. It costs alot, but it will increase your percentage of finding a job if dancing doesn't work.

I would say that this is the biggest gamble of your life. You're either gonna regret this for the rest of your life, or prosper as a happy individual.

you prolly wanna drop out of college so you have more time for everything else like dance or time for your self. i say if you really wanna dance work at it, but don't drop out of school. sacrifice a lot and go to school and practice your craft cuz when if it don't work out, you'll be stuck if you don't have anything to fall back on. again, that's assuming you just wanna drop out to not spend time at school

If you decide college isn't for you, you have to have a legit back up plan. Not plan on being a fuck boy dancer. I dropped out of college but I picked up a trade. Its hard work but I make more money than a lot of my friends with shitty degrees.

considering you are asking this on a forum, you probably lack vision for your future... it would be a dumb move to drop out unless you got a plan and/or have a lot of discipline

If you want to be an entrepeneur and run your own business dropping out of college is the number 1 stupid move you will ever do. Passion is not enough to succeed in that field. Besides if running a business is your passion i don't see how you find it boring to study and learn about it, i just finished the first 3 years of my own and i love studying it.

if you confident in your ability to actually turn your skills into profits then go for it, just be prepared to work hard. College is easy, you shuffle through the system until they give you a piece of paper showing that you're certified to be another cog in the wheel and then off you go, if you're willing to put forth the effort to actually EXCEL at life then fuck college, that drive is all you need

All I do is smoke weed and listen to MF DOOM innercitykidsmusic.com
