I'm depressed

I can go from feeling ok to being depressed in an instant. Can any of you relate?

I haven't been to the gym in a few days. There just doesn't seem to be enough hours in the day. I'm being killed by school and I am also really lonely.

I just found out that my school has a program that lets students with bachelors degrees in other fields but education; can take additional classes to get a masters in education. cool

Is it normal for me to think that college courses shouldn't feel like chores or punishments? That the work should be something that the student enjoys doing?

I took another personality/career test and these are the results.


It says I would be a good personality for teaching.

Well instead of studying, I decided to take a career aptitude test online. It consisted of 485 questions and the top 3 jobs for me are:

1. New Account Clerk
2. Word Processor or Typist
3. Clerk (office, postal, general, file, shipping and receiving)

Please kill me...

It also showed 305 other jobs for me and it compared them with my " Predicted Skill / Interest Level: Lower,Moderate,High,Very High

For all of the teaching jobs (professor, middle school, elementary, special ed), I scored the highest for elementary teacher with a rank of "moderate." I think I will take more tests. At least I am getting something from them...

Oh and for marketing/ sales manager I scored "lower."

I had another frustrating day today. Why did I say "had?" The day is only 1/2 over but it feels like another day wasted to me. I'm debating if I should drop out of school for this semester. This may sound like a shocker, since I made a thread complaining about school but then I ultimately decided to suck it up and take on the 8 more classes needed to get my degree.

But the thing is, why should I go for a degree that I won't even use? Sure it sounds nice, having a marketing degree and it looks good on a resume... the truth however is that I'm not getting anything but frustration out of my classes. I like the advertising course that I'm taking but thats because I can relate to the material. I'm able to participate in discussions because I've seen commercials.

As for the other courses, they are nothing but a waste of my time. I honestly feel like some of my professors (mainly this one in particular) are trying to test me by pushing me to my breaking point. I don't know how much longer I can force myself to do something (not to mention the fact that I am wasting money, time, and energy) that I don't enjoy.

I'm still clueless about what I want to do with my life but a part of me is leaning towards teaching. Which means I would have to take a whole bunch more classes and be in school for probably 2-3 more years. My grandma and grandpa were both teachers and I am good at explaining things to fellow classmates- help them before tests, on homework, etc. I enjoy helping them too.

I don't see myself working in the business world. I would much rather work 7-3, have weekends off, not have to kiss ass to advance the ranks, and I want to make a difference. So I'm currently at a crossroads about what to do. Should I suck it up and complete the 8 classes that I need to get a degree? Should I take a chance and go for a different degree that I may actually use? I don't know what to do and it is driving me nuts. I can't enjoy life anymore it seems. If only I could go back to being a kid again... when all I thought about was what was on tv or playing with toys. *sigh*

I do extra stuff too but I still finish hours early. My boss isn't there when I work because I work late. Umm today I didn't eat McDonalds but I'm depressed once more. Its because I'm alone... I really want a girlfriend but I'm too shy and not outgoing enough to get one. I've never had one.

Have you tried asking your boss for more to do? I start making stuff up at work to do cause i get done quick too.

I'm actually happier at work than when I'm at home. I just wish I had more things to do...

Im having a better day today. I hope you are too. Dont complain about your job because so many people are getting laid off. I used to complain until i saw that 450 people in my small town of 20,000 got laid off. Just keep the job until you find something better. Take care dude!
