I hate my last class, I fall asleep every day, and I'm fairly sure I don't need it - drop it?
    #3798133 - 02/18/05 01:33 PM (12 years, 3 months ago)

I'm sitting here picking my butt constantly debating what I should do. I'm ALMOST 100% sure I'm going to leave computer engineering. It's not a fun major, and it's about 10 years from being outdated. I hate the class I'm in, and I'm behind and failing.

Someone convince me to just hit the drop button.

Wish I could pick another major..Discrete Math? Any math majors out there?

I did that last week!

Well, I recenty dropped a math class because it is my weakest subject, the teacher moved too fast for me, and I need more time to devote to it. (which is what I'll be doing during the summer)

If you think you might fail the class, then drop it.

It was a 3-and-a-half-hour seminar that went from 6 to 9:30 in the history of folklore and children's tales, which sounds awesome I know, especially cause the semester wrapped up with a discussion of the Burning Man festival, but it was a Senior Seminar, and I had already taken one, and the reading load proved to be humongous, and English majors are already buried under reading in ALL our classes, so it proved to be too much. I also wanted to switch into the last class I need to finish up my degree but it was closed...so after taking one summer course, I'll be all done.

I'm majoring in Computer Information Systems (fucking programming) but I'm not too sure about it. I'm thinking about changing to something in the natural sciences (or maybe chemistry).

I don't understand how a person can decide what they want to major in at 19 or 20. I'm back in college now after a long break and I finally have a much better idea but I'm still not sure. (Organic chemistry or some sort of biology)

Yeah man..I'm thinking about natural sciences too. I just..I dunno, I don't dig majoring in computers anymore. I'm not bad at programming but I dislike it intensely. I'm even interested in it, but DOING it just doesn't cut it for me. Me disliking programming is something I don't understand, but I'm not too sad. Too many programmers out there. I want to maybe go into chemistry, but I'm SO far behind =( God..it's killing me. 2 years at school and I'll only have 44 hours, and if I switch my majors I'll have even less than that.

How far are you into computer engineering? I would stick with engineering... that is a quality path that will give you many high paying job options.

I'm interested in programming but I just don't think I can do it for a living. I love it but I think it's more of a hobby than a career.

I'll probably change over Summer, seeing as how this is my second year of community college.

I think I'd much rather make modest money working outdoors than great money as a programmer. Although, scientists can make some damn fine cash, money is not an issue for me.

Haha, programmers don't make great money.

And I'm not terribly far into computer engineering. I've only gotten credit for 2 classes in the Comp. E line-up and I just dropped my 3rd one. I'd be behind not because of the classes I'd lose but the classes I now have to take. Chemistry, I lack like 4 classes with labs. Orgo, Inorgo, number 2 on both of those, etc. I'm really kinda in a bind =( I'm going to be at school for a long time.

I am biology major, with a minor in chem. I really like chemistry and wish I would have majored in that, or gone into chemical engineering. After graduation, I plan on studying chemistry heavily, and then going back to school in a few years with intent for a chemistry masters degree.

Yeah, programmers don't but I know some positions in software engineering can make upwards of $100,000/year.

I'll probably be at school for a while too, but is that necessarily a bad thing?

I dunno, I guess not. Why rush it I guess. I'll have to just suck it up and start majoring in something. I can probably pick anything and be satisfied. Maybe Physics? Cool shit in Physics without all the labs =D

Or discrete math, but I'd feel kinda useless. Unless a discrete mathematician can log on and tell me why he's a badass.

If you fall asleep in a College Class that is being paid for by someone, you should reevaluate why you are going to college.

Lol, that's a little hasty. I fall asleep in that class. I don't fall asleep in the other...2 classes. I fall asleep in Economics.

But I stay awake in Calc II and English II. I like math..to an extent, and English II I can always handle. I stayed awake in Chemistry most of te time, except on really bad days for my prof. when he was just a mess. I stayed awake in CS class..

Really, I'm just still trapped in High School version 2.0. Alot of core classes, and the only non-core classes I've taken I haven't enjoyed so it's time for a change.

My intentions for college are fine, thanks.

Programmers make good bread.  I'm programming for myself and I have it pretty easy...  I mean, I don't have a lot of money right now, but I'm on the boards a lot, you may have noticed - I probably spend about 1 week a month working.  :smile:

Because I want to earn money and be in an interesting field, and not have to work some shit job the rest of my life, barely scraping by to support my family. I'm paying for my own education and I fall asleep in classes all the time, or just skip entirely (I feel worse disrespecting the proffesor by falling asleep than skipping entirely), and I still have good grades (3.5 GPA) and an understanding of the material.

Perhaps the OP falls asleep in class because it is not challenging enough? Or he parties too much and doesn't get enough sleep? Or the professor presents uninteresting material (and unrelated material for his major) in a dry and extremely boring manner? Also, it's possible that the OP has a blood disorder that causes him to require more sleep? Don't just assume someone is going to college for all the wrong reasons if they have trouble paying attention in one meaningless class.
