Is My Future ****** Up Now

I messed up my future?

Relax bud! The world is your oyster.

My grandfather didn't graduate from high school because he was forced to work during the depression to support his family. He became a plumber and was able to provide his family with a roof over their heads and food on the table.

I also have a couple of friends that graduated from highschool and became carpenters and do pretty well for themselves. It's all about recognizing what you like and what you're good at. If you're good with your hands, a trade is a great option! There's always going to be work in plumbing, heating/air conditioning, carpentry, landscaping, painting, etc.

You can still go to college! It's all about taking the first step...That would be getting your GED or highschool equivalent. Once this happens, you can talk to an advisor at a community college who will help you to figure out what path to take. You don't have to do this alone, help is always available!

The name of the game is a to have a plan. Take it in small steps and try setting mini-goals and go easy on yourself.

You're so young! It's ok to feel lost. Anyone that says that they haven't felt lost at some point in their life is lying to you!

I wonder what my future wife is doing right now?

She is still in your bedroom, under the bed, in her box...waiting for the one day you blow her up, and make an honest woman of her

Do you think the future can affect the present?

The future can only affect the present indirectly. Plans for the future (i.e. final causality) affect the present. But your question ruled out predictions, and if you consider final causality to be included in this, I'll modify this and say that the future affects our current present insofar as the future will affect how we interpret the past.

However, these are rational causes, since predictions and final causality are intellectual. Considering agent causality, the future cannot affect the present because the future does not exit as such--unless one wants to bring up some argument based on relativity.

I feel like I screwed up my future high school career.?

Okay, so I m a sophomore right now getting ready to start my second semester. I just got my grades back and I have a 2.7 GPA which is the equivalent of a C+. I ve been told that while it s not the best, it s not the worst, but this isn t very reassuring. I ve been going through some things and while I know that s not an excuse, I really need to step it up. I d like to go to a good college/university and not be stuck with a 2.7 GPA for the rest of my life.

My question is, now that I m starting my 2nd semester, if I start actually putting effort in, enough to raise to a 4.0, and pull it off for the next two years --- Do I have a shot at going to a good university?
