theeffingjam replied to your post “can I go back in time and tell myself, if you fuck up your first two…”I actually finished university a couple of years ago. This was me coming to…As someone who straight bombed my first two years of college… it does get better!
I can totally relate to your frustration! I simply wasn’t prepared for college or college life and I started screwing everything up as soon as I got there. I also worked a lot, and partied a lot, and know it was through no fault but my own (though I later learned I have ADHD, which I’m sure played some part).
5 years out of school, I was working for a company I absolutely loved, but I got dead-ended in a position I was clearly over-qualified for due to my math grades from my freshman year and they didn’t want to promote me because of my transcript. Because of some stupid math grade I got when I was freakin 17 years old, they decided I had no analytic skills.
I’m in marketing, so I don’t really know much (ok, nothing) about the science field. Thankfully, there were a lot of others out there that didn’t give a crap about my grades, and though it pained my heart, I eventually left that company.
At some point, experience (regardless of what it is) should trump grades. And hopefully you’ll find the person out there that can see that and give you a chance. Best of luck to you!
