[18 / 2 / ?]
My life is in an utter mess right now. I have been underperforming in academics for the past five years. Since I scored very poorly in my high secondary school exams, I managed to get into a tier-three engineering college that isn't even within the top thirty colleges in my state. But even here in this college I am performing very poorly. This is my fourth semester and my chances of clearing the semester are very slim. I can't see my parents disappointed anymore. If I drop out and get a job I will have to lead a life of poverty, because the best jobs for a high school graduate here pay about 150 USD per month. What do I do? I don't want to repeat a year. The situation is so bad that for the first time in my life I have been unironically considering suicide. I just sat through seven hours of class without understanding anything.
