I went to a community college because I didn't have the money or the grades for someplace big. Unfortunately I was a shit student and my finincal aid was at the bottom of the to do list i never looked at. So long story short I went back and forth for several years, never finding a real job or making any real progress in school. Last year i decide to fulfil my lifelong ambition to join the US Army. But i got an extermely bad case of bronchitus and once they found out i lied to get in i was sent packing. I had been through so much i didnt care.
Look whatever you do in the short term make sure you take it seriously and jump in with both feet. Dont dick around for years. If you've got an urge like to paint or whatever then take that seriously. Experiment a bit if you don't have any real desires for a career. That's what college is really about. Still, Good luck.
