Parent Problems about College

AQWERTYUIOAQWERTYUIO Registered User Posts: 4 New Member
I want to go to college I don't want to be a bum when I grow up. However, I am not aloud to go to the college I want. I have a week before I graduate high school and all the colleges I got accepted too are at least 4 hours away and one 2 hours away. I have my heart set on the one 4 hours away. My parents say it's either the college 2 hours away or community college because, they don't want to make the 4 hour drive. I don't know what to do. I really hate the school that I am being forced to go too. I am embarrassed to go to that school and I feel like no one understands that I want to be myself and do what I want to do where I want to do it. I told my parents that I'll go to the school I hate because I am tired of fighting with them. My parents will let me transfer out within a year but I just don't want to go to the school I hate at all. I hate it so much and to get back at my parents for making me go to school somewhere I don't want to go. I am going to join the military. I have always wanted to join the military but my parents have always said no. I want to be a pilot in the Air Force and they won't let me. They won't let me do anything so if I have to give up a school I really want to go too then I will join the military.

What do you think I should do? Is my idea a good idea because I want to be in the Air Force and they are not going to take that away from me. They can take 4 years of my life away but not all of my life. The fu**ed up part is that they let my brother and sister do whatever they want whenever they want because they are older than me. They want me to do what they want because I am the youngest child.
