Going to College

Hey guys well finally after 12 years of crap from my rents and brother about messsing around through grade school and high school i've finally got my act together and decided that im going to school. Im going to Kansas State for horticulture/landscape design, so now when i get back to this area with my fancy degree i will be able to beatify peoples housesfor them. (people around here pay for everything to be done for them)

so any good stories or things that i should or shouldn't do before i leave?

also my mom promised me if i can get through 2 years without any major problems she will buy me a 4-eye coupe mustang so i can start my next project.

I made it threw 2 years... to me college is simplified to this. you get a bunch of tokens (classes) and when you have enough you trade them in for a prize (degree) then you take it home and put it in your basement never to be used again.


but uh good luck!

Guess that depends on what the Degree is in. I got my Engineering degree in '85. That helped me get my Commission in the military. Used that degree for the next 7 years in the military, and the following 16 years since military
retirement.

My daughter is getting her medical degree. She'll certainly be using that -
and yes, she'll be paying for it for SOME TIME, too.

Make the most of it. Get everything out of the college experience that you can
(at least, the positive things). Education is never a waste - some things might be more immediately useful than others, though.
