    Best Time Of Your Life

    I'm not sure who said "college is the best time or your life," but the statement is grossly incorrect. College, for me, is a repeat of high school. My roommates go through stupid drama, students are money obsessed, no one really wants to learn, and my period syncs up with fellow...

    Almost everyone goes to college

    because it's necessary for them to get a good job. I go for the same reason but at the same time I go for myself because I genuinely love learning. I love doing anything that's mind stimulating and going to school fulfills that need for me.

    Finding the Right Time to Go Back to School

    I went to college fresh out of high school like my mother wanted me to. I even went to the same college she had graduated from. By the end of the first semester I was convinced I wasn't cut out for college. I failed almost all my classes and was so homesick I could hardly breathe...
