    so, I told my boyfriend,

    that if I wasn't majoring in psychology, my second choice would be to major in Law. His response: ahh. both choices which you don't need much math or science. how intelligent." -__- I know he was kidding, but sometimes I feel like he thinks he is generally smarter then me...

    So far, I've gotten along well with

    not only my dorm mates, but the form of girls right next to us. My roommate and I accepted their invitation to watch Neighbors with them last night, and for a lot of us, it was our first time seeing it. Good motivational movie for college. I was the last of the guys (there was a...

    If you aren't crying by now

    because of how stressed finals have you, then you don't care enough about your education and you're doing college wrong.

    The very awkward moment

    when your very married professor tries to hit on you. **blinks** I'm already making all A's but thanks anyway. I'll stick to just being the student.

    Handy guide on what I actually needed in

    college, because freshmen year we brought like an entire suburban full of bins of stuff and that was so unnecessary. For bathing: -Shower caddy (unless you have a bathroom in your dorm room/apartment room) -Robe -Toiletries (toothbrush, toothpaste, makeup remover, shampoo...

    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've only just entered week 2 of college

    and I've already had enough. Seriously nothing positive to say about it. I've got teacher that no non about what they teach and young brats in class taking advantage of my kindness.

    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...

    I don't get how people see college

    as a "fun time", for me it's the most stressful months of the year. People think I'm lame because I don't party...like ever. While I'm wondering, how the hell do you even party and get through college? I understand you can "get by" with average grades, but that's not me. I...

    I don't understand what I'm feeling.

    I know that there aren't many people on here and that most likely nobody will read this. But I need to get my feelings out. I am lost. That's the simplest way to put it. I am a freshman in college and I was excited to come here. I am tremendously worried about the grades and...

    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 watching all the freshies post experiences

    about their first days/weeks here and it brings back good memories for me. I'm a junior now, but freshman year was probably my favorite year. It was so exciting and everything was so new and great. Then if you're in a difficult major like me you slowly get broken down over the...

    College is like high school you live at with

    your friends with no adult monitoring. Academically it's exactly like high school, only you go WAY more in depth into the material in the field you want to go into. So if you're a science major, you're going to learn a TON about EVERY main type of science, and then you maybe get...

    Those high school students be complaining bout

    high school and stuffs saying they can't wait to be in college. Just wait til you're in college and experience constant flow of reports, assignments, 24/7 of hunger, stress and so on. Better be prepared high school students. 😊😊

    Transfer.. I really miss my other college.

    I was 10 mins late for my first class. I hate being late it gives me anxiety. I hate that I don't know my way around. Although silver lining to my new school I got Starbucks and I feel much better now that I am caffeinated! Praying the rest of my day goes smooth!!

    I am in college and I can't wait to graduate.

    Somewhere, someone told me that college is the best time of your life. Really? That means my life only gets more ******? I'm a junior and I still have no friends or fond memories of this experience. The food is gross and the people here suck.
