    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.

    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...

    and every day if gotten out of at least one class earlier! I am a freshmen I college and I can honestly say already recreational therapy was the right path to go for. I was a bit nervous I wouldn't like the major but I liked it by the 2nd day! I'm thrilled to see what other...

    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...

    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 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...

    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. 😊😊

    It's hard to believe

    that we are already at the beginning of another school year. For me this is my last first day of school until I decide to start my PhD, this is both amazing and frightening. Only 1 more year in the world of academia before I must embrace the world. I am a student that studies...

    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.

    dear professors, why don't you provide "one

    correct answer" instead of "one best answer" in multiple choice questions so that my life would be much easier??

    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.

    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 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...

    One of the interesting things I've learned

    about college is how much it changes you. So much can happen in one year, and I feel like a different person, in a good way. I feel like I'm wiser (not just in academics, but about myself and life in general).
