Motorcycle to Auckland (11)

1 Name: Anonymous : 2007-03-20 11:40 ID:RVlyga6o

For the past 2 months now ive been failing college, i have been since i started, but i do the minimal requirements needed to pass. Last year i did relatively okay with minor mishaps but this year is different as we are graded mostly on our projects (last year i was mostly graded on the end of year exam). I have attended only a few class/lectures for the past 3 weeks and thinking about leaving. But if i leave now i would have wasted two years for nothing (we get a diploma after 2 years) And at the rate im going i will probably have to repeat the year.

When im in class i find myself drifting off thinking about riding on a motorcycle to new zealand and horseback riding in auckland. I keep saying to myself someday i will go, but my lazy self says otherwise. I am too lazy to get up and go but when i go somewhere i love every minute of it.

I dont drink (everybody around me drinks) and have a bit of a phobia of people which stops me from joining backpacking groups. I would like to make new friends and when i do make friends im glad i did. I think the reason why i fear people is because im afraid of what they think of me. I know that i shouldnt and i should make steps to rid myself of this problem.

Does anybody get this feeling to just leave and forget everything?

Its not just college im failing its life also(bet you never heard that before) im going on 20 and i still live with my parents and live in the same town i grew up in. I would like to move out but if i were to do that it would be rather pointless. My town is small and if i were to move out i would like to move as far away as possible from them.

Also it would be nice to travel with somebody but my friends are not really into unplanned trips to nowhere. This may also be the reason why im so slow to leave as it would be comfortable travelling knowing somebody was there with you.

Im a loss in what to do, im avoiding class right now

Why don't you try doing better than the minimal requirements? rather than just doing the minimum, aim for a pass so that you would do better than you would aiming for the minimum. for me, when i aim for an A, i always get B's. try that! if it can't work for you, i don't know what will...

Don't feel bad about the 'wanderlust' feelings... I've been feeling like that more & more lately, and I'm 25 ys old... My difference is that I'm in a dead-end job (even as I write now), and feel like I'm never going to see even a one-hundredth of the things that are out there in the world, if I don't just save up some money, and just leave everything behind, and just drive off, and start a fresh life on the road or traveling...

As I'm not in a relationship (and not likely to find one in this rural area), I feel that other than my family being in the area, and concerns over finances hold me back... Otherwise, I'd just love to forget everything and drive off, starting over...

New Zealand is not that great unless you like bumpy land and sheep.

Wellington > Auckland

Or go to the south island.

Auckland is a hole in the ground (sorry guys!).
