RE: Departing from Childhood
I want to forget about my childhood, I want to lobotomize those thoughts out of my head. Nothing but pain those years. Dodgy

I'm 17 now. Next year I will be 18, and shortly after I will have my exams which will decide what university courses I can apply for, based on the results I get.

I literally have NO IDEA what I want to study. Absolutely none. Not even a hint. Nothing. I find it hard to study because I have no reason to. My mom nags me constantly, but it does nothing. I just live day to day, waiting for weekends and holidays because school is so dull. Before I know it, 2015 will be here and I will be fucked. I think it's just the fact that every college degree entails a job in which I have to work for someone else, 5 days a week, for the rest of my life. Until I'm retired. By which time all chances for life experiences are over. I would like to run a business some day, to make more money than any regular job ever will, and to live by my rules. Then retire early and do what I want.

I wonder what will I look back on when I am 80. Will I still be alive? Will I have been a complete failure, or a billionaire? I have no idea. Shit's about to go down though Drinking Beverage
I'm not a teen, I just turned 26. But I deal with issues that teens should have, if they were allowed by their families.
Nagging never does anything, it's just a softer form of bullying, eroding your soul like a dripping acid. How can be anyone nagged or bullied into anything? It is an overt display of disrespect to you, distrust that you could be able to look out for yourself, take care for your own stuff. An order to move your lazy ass! How can you respond, but with utter lack of motivation? A mother's tongue lash is like a slaver's whip, slaves work as slow as they can get away with it. Because it is the mother's will, not yours, that is pushing you now. You may go to college and perhaps you should - but for yourself, not for your mother!

You at 80 years? Man, you should be worried if you are alive now, with this nagging jail guard on your back.
As for the school, it's bound to be dull. It is the Soviet model, financed by socialism. Whatever you make by honest work, will be taken from you and given to teachers' unions to pay for the dullest schools imaginable. One year of dullness and learning nothing of one student gives them 12-14 grand.

You live in an utterly unsustainable political and economical system. There will be no economic recovery. Your government (especially if it's American) is printing money like crazy, but prints even more money to pay the rich people to sit on the extra money, so that they don't get to you and fake ratings stay high. All that while taxing all that moves and subsidizing heavily all that ceased to move, but doesn't cease to grow and never starts working productively again. As for maintaining hundreds of military bases around the world and sending young troops abroad to get PTSD and commit suicide later, that is not good for young people either. Poverty in what used to be middle class is soaring. You live in a freakin' empire of downfall and decadence, only with better entertainment and propaganda.

So it looks pretty grim. If I were you, I'd try to pick a few practical skills, get out of home, live alone and figure out who I am and what I want and don't want. Maybe college isn't the right thing - learning is, but not the debt trap for the rebellious youth, that is the college loan.
I had some savings and I blew them on 1 year of private Libertarian college to finish my Bachelor's degree. Best spent money I ever had. Made me a smarter human being.

The problem is, with nagging and perhaps verbally abusive household mentality, I had no idea what I was doing or who I am until about 23 years of age, it was just a torturous bouncing back and forth off the extremes and then it was a huge climb to get where I actually wanted to be. The problem is, I turned out to be one of these rare people who don't fit anywhere, thrown at the wall of the world in high speed to break new niches into it, apparently.

Well I'm from Ireland, and the economy is improving. We exited from the bailout program thingy, jobs are being created and overall things are getting better. So that's fine. America is in a pile of shit at the moment apparently.

Yup.

I just want to become a scientist.

As a person who recently departed from my teenage years (I am now 20), I just want to let you know a few things. There is no magical occurence between the ages 17 and 18. There is not a sudden adoption of adulthood. Adulthood comes with experience and responsibility. A serious mistake most people make is rushing children off to university without the support that they need. You don't need to know exactly what you want to do yet. You've got time to figure it out.

Just my 2cents though.
