    but is it supposed to be so boring? Isn't college the time of finding out who you are? While getting your degree. Obviously

    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. 😊😊
