Do any other Ps find formal education irritating? It's not that there aren't any interesting topics to study--there's a wealth of those--just that I don't feel like dealing with them every day. I need the freedom to study things at MY own pace, to wake up and decide that I'm not going to read that particular book today, and when I feel forced into doing them on a regimented schedule for prolonged periods of time, it actually annoys me enough that I develop a negative association with the subject matter, even when it's a subject I typically enjoy!
It's really kind of a problem. I'd like to have a college degree (I was a junior when I quit last year) but I just can't stand the "Study exactly what I tell you to exactly when I tell you to for exactly how long I tell you to" framework for education. Are there any realistic alternatives?
