    I go to school full time

    and work full time. I have no life and no free time. But it feels so good to know I'm working towards an attainable goal. My future is in my hands.

    Two of the worst things

    as a college student: 1. Having LONG multiple hour gaps between classes & 2. Having classes that exceed 2 hours. It's atrocious.

    Currently on suspension at my last college

    and took a semester off. After much deciding and crying and anxiety, I decided to go to a university, away from all the stress and drama of my parents, my depression, my job, and my community college. It's one of the cheapest universities in my state? an hour away from where I...

    So we had a late opening.

    If a class starts before the opening time, it's supposed to be cancelled. So I didn't go to my lab. But turns out they held the class anyway and I missed the lab and if I don't find a way to get it done anyway, I will fail the class. I am very confused and angry because - why...

    My favorite experience

    so far of being in college is watching two hot guys from my dorm hall (one of whom I have a mild crush on) give another hot guy (whom I have a MAJOR crush on) a sexy lap dance. 👅💦 they were all just joking around but god damn it was so hot

    I'm in my Sophomore year of college

    now (just started a week ago), and I initially hopeful and excited but now I'm rather disappointed. Two of my classes are really small (only around 10 people) and I was looking to make new friends. Every time I try and talk to someone, it seems they don't want to talk. Either...

    I'm 34 and just started college.

    .. Going for my bachelors in HR Management. I work in HR and love it. But I do find it a challenge to balance my time. Sometimes my job has me working so many hours and on weekends and it's hard to find the energy to do my schoolwork. Anyone have any good tips?

    I'm in college, I hate it,

    and I could care so much less about it. I guess it doesn't make it any better when I'm basically studying something that's only my secondary interest (if even that). "You're making a better future for yourself." Yeah, like I haven't heard that from the 1000th wage slave...

    I can't bring myself to study.

    I know I have to and my grades depend on studying but I just can't. I'm around people that as soon as they wake up in the morning and take care of their hygiene, sit down and study until it's dark outside. They freak out whenever they take a day off to go out and instantly...
