Thought:

College is no longer useful for me, because I've learned how to learn.

The classes I'm in are all waaaaay too slow. Even the ones on subjects that I don't know. I could buy the textbook and assimilate it in two weeks, two hours a day, at least well enough to know where to find things that I don't know. I've done that before, since leaving college, and I really enjoyed it too.

Right now, I'm sitting there bored listening to things that I admittedly don't know, but that I most assuredly do know after glancing at the slide for fifteen seconds . . . and then watching the professor explain the slide for five minutes. Or more.

And I'm paying how many thousands of dollars to progress through at a snail's pace?

I could probably do just as good of a job by renting a house in the middle of nowhere, buying some textbooks, and holing up and learning for a year or three. And I'd have far more time to go out and have fun, too. *And* I'd end up with a lot more money left over at the end of it.

I think my decision is made. I don't have to decide immediately, of course, but . . . I can't think of anything that would change my mind.

On the other hand, that's why I'm mulling it over.

Comments definitely appreciated.
