    RANT 
    So a few months ago, right after high school, my parents kind of "persuaded" me to go to University (crabs in a bucket mentality, once again). So it's been 3 months now and I feel like my life SUCKS. It feels like I'm wasting my time. I believed I could both study and run a side-hustle. I was...
