With the end of the semester nearing, I have made some very precise, earth-shattering observations about the life of a college student.
First of, college is hard. I mean like, really hard. In high school I would spend nearly 40 hours a week gracing the halls, and while I only spend 15 hours a week in class here, the workload is that much more difficult. Plus, professors seem to have this crazy idea that grades should be based solely on tests. Whatever happened to high school busy work?
Professors also don’t seem to enjoy showing up to lectures very often. One week I had a total of 5 classes cancelled. Even twice, all of my classes in one day were cancelled! I guess lecturing for an hour 3 times a week is just too much to ask for. But that just means more time for me to aimlessly scroll through social media (who am I kidding I probably do that in class, too).
Okay, and can we talk about how school continues to exist even when it gets cold outside? It’s only November, but it’s already snowed twice (good, ole’ Indiana) and I don’t think I’m really going to enjoy this snow thing for the rest of winter. It’s not really my thing. Plus I have this reoccurring image of me slipping on ice on the way to class never to be found again.
There are some positive aspects of college, though. Just kidding, there are a lot. But in my opinion, one of the best is probably the all-you-can-eat breakfast buffet in my dorm. I typically start my mornings in the buffet on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and it’s like breakfast heaven. Each day they alternate different kinds of breakfast favorites, like every type of hash brown you could ever think of.
There are so many other things I could say about college, but I figured professors, the weather, and an awesome breakfast buffet sum it all up. I also hope my sarcasm doesn’t go under appreciated, because regardless of what it may sound like, I also am maintaining a fairly good GPA. So thank you college life.
