Right now, community college isn't even cutting it for me. I'm on prohibation from my financial aid again for the 2nd time just for only dropping ONE class past my deadline (yet still passed the rest of my other three classes), which is bullshit. It still costs me too much money to pay off my classes and textbooks and my parents can barely afford it because they're struggling with their own financial issues loaning money to my older sister and her daughter with their problems.
I feel like I'm wasting my time in community college constantly taking classes that doesn't relate to my field at all so I might as well just take job corps where I don't have to worry about financial problems and get the necessary skills actually used in the workforce and in the real world.

It is normal to think that the classes you are taking do not relate to your field. But I know plenty of people who have wished they had more of the non specific field classes. Its about getting you to a certain level of critical thinking and developing your knowledge so that you are not just learning about your field and can not be flexible when needed.
I personally think it is worth sticking with it. Most people have a hard time going back to college once they drop out. Work and family gets in the way. It does not mean all do. If your profession of choice requires this degree then I would stick to it. If you do not necessarily need it then why stay in school.
Or you could work full time or part time. I worked full time and went to night school to get my associates degree, before I decided I wanted a bachelors in a different field.0
