i have a 2.6 GPA, but i keep getting C-'s in my classes, and i need at least Cs to move on to the next class in the series. Im a third year computer science major, but i haven't gotten into the upper division courses yet because i've had to retake so many classes. Beyond that is the fact that i dont want a career in computers anymore. I used to spend all my free time on my computer during highschool because i didn't want to be a carpenter like my father. I also didn't live in town, so i didn't have anybody to hang out with when i was at home. So what the fuck would I do if I dropped out? Pretty much the exact opposite: become a musician. I know, I know, its hard to make it, hardly anybody does, i know. My goal would not be to become the next kurt cobain, or be in the next RHCP. My goal would just be to get by on it. I honestly believe i have the talent and the passion to do it. To at least get a record out and make a living. I play bass, and theres always a band in need of a bassist. Im currently in a band that has played three shows, and people talked to us afterwards saying "that was amazing!" "do you have a demo?" "i want to play you on my radio show" "that kicked ass!". Im just going to see what happens i guess.
