I first hated college when I arrived here as a freshman for several reasons, which you can read in some of my other experiences. Sophomore year wasn't too bad overall. Now that it is junior year I am starting to loathe it again. There are so many reasons why that I have decided to break them down into sections for easier understanding.
As Sheryl Crow's Soak Up the Sun quotes "You've got a fancy ride, but baby I'm the one who has the key" this can apply to college life. I've got the fancy education but my parents for right now are holding the key, which has as many advantages as disadvantages. The most recent disadvantage is that of not agree who I decide to room with (more details in the ranting room)
90% of them are a joke, especially the distribution classes. Why do I want to waste money and time on things I will forget once the class is over and have nothing to do with what I want to do after college? Also, I am getting sick of pay $100+ for textbooks that I read just because it is assigned, but have nothing to do with lectures or the tests. What God says we have to have textbooks? Classes also become a joke when the professor cancels every other class and also when it is evident they just want to shuffle everyone through it. If you are going to do that, just give us the credit and save us the time and energy of doing stuff for your class!
This is a huge, huge one for me. Being here has caused me to lose what little hope left I have in humanity. The people here are much worse than the worst of high schoolers. Everyone is focuse only on themselves and MAYBE one other person. All anyone does around here is go to class, eat, and sit in front of their computers or televisions for the rest of the day being anti social and not givng a crap about schoolwork. I make schoolwork a priority and have been raised not to watch that much TV or be addicted to the Internet, but anymore that's all I can do to survive. I used to be more outgoing, but people shutting me out has caused me to shut most other people out as well. I will give it right back to them! Also, I am pissed off at the lack of stable friendships I have. One year you are close to a group of people, the next you have to start over fresh like you transferred or something!
Why am I paying through the nose for crappy food, crappy classes, and outdated living conditions?
Enough said for right now
