Honest question, is anyone else totally miserable in college? I keep being told that it's supposed to be the most fun and amazing years of your life but I cannot wait to graduate in June and have it finally be over. Makes me think there's something wrong with me.
@JakobJeanCiccone, youll realize how amazing they where once the rest of your soul is crushed by the world
@JakobJeanCiccone, it may be because you're actually putting effort into your schooling. I feel like the more work I put in the less time I have for fun
@JakobJeanCiccone, that's because you're doing it all wrong. You're not supposed to go to college for an education, you go to college to party.
@JakobJeanCiccone, I know exactly what you mean. I think I've spent most of college having breakdowns, pretending to not care, hating myself every other day, and feeling lonely and terrified of what the hell I'm supposed to do with my life.
@JakobJeanCiccone, no it pretty much sucks. It's where people go to spend money they don't have to learn information they don't need for jobs that do not exist. Having a college degree doesn't mean you're smart. There's an overabundance of morons with them. It just means you're ignorant with class. But if you're lucky, you'll find a decent paying job with that stupid piece of paper with fancy words on it which you can work to pay off the mountain of debt you accumulated by going to college. Congrats on graduating tho.
@JakobJeanCiccone, honestly I miss college! It was great time.. I was going through depression and other crap.. I just wish I knew the things I know now when I was in college.. now I'm 27 with no degree because I can't afford college
@JakobJeanCiccone, Mechanical Engineering student here: my philosophy is that if you are enjoying college you probably won't learn anything that will help outside of college. Don't get me wrong: it's ok to have some fun at college but your main purpose in spending 40k a year there us to learn a trade that will help you earn that money back. There's nothing wron with wanting to graduate ASAP but ke sure you apply or jobs and internships so that you can have a future outside of college
@JakobJeanCiccone, real talk from a 25 year old that got out of college/grad school a few years ago. College is only as fun as you make it, and there is no way to party like an animal and still get good grades in a demanding/useful major (i.e. not business/psychology/etc) while remaining physically and mentally healthy. I picked the path you’re on where I focused on schooling. Never went to a single party. At my school the majority of students went Greek anyway, and I didn’t like the idea of paying hundreds to thousands of dollars to buy temporary friends I would never see after graduation. Fast forward to now and I have a stable full time job in my field, all my college loans are getting repaid fast due to my job choice, and I have never ran into anyone from undergrad in the real world. Put the time and work in, and the rewards will show in time. That’s a fact of life.
@JakobJeanCiccone, don’t worry. I worked my arse off for four years in college. I feel like my diploma should be framed in platinum, and I don’t regret it. The best years of your life are what you make them, not what people who drink too much say they are.
@JakobJeanCiccone, I'm in engineering, I have lots of friends here but I feel the same way
@JakobJeanCiccone, oh yeah man I fvcking hate it. I feel you 100%. You'll be alright. Get yourself that job and then go get yourself that girl and you'll turn around.
@JakobJeanCiccone, I don't know, I rarely go to parties and focus a lot on school, but I live with fantastic people and let myself do many extracurricular activities. It can be busy, but I'm having a wonderful time. Part of it is definitely point of view though, so look up, my friend, it can only get better from here.
@JakobJeanCiccone, It could be your school and surroundings too. I know a lot of people that hated college until they transferred to a new one. You just need to find a group of likeminded people and it will make all the difference. Sometimes that group just isn't at your school though.
@Facebook Memes, freshman in college here. i had a reaaally sh!tty high school experience. im only two months into college and it kicks fvcking a$s because im not afraid to do anything, i become friends with every guy and flirt with every hot girl and for some reason which never happened in high school im good at flirting and the girls talk to me too. all i wil say, is all the fun college is producing for me, is coming from interacting with others. and rightfully so, as that was something i was too anxious & afraid to do in high school
@JakobJeanCiccone, it’s 100% about who you surround yourself with man. I’m a senior and college has been my best experience so far but that has nothing to do with parties or girls or the town I’m in it’s 100% the friendships and relationships I’ve made. Get involved with something if you haven’t yet bro. I know everyone says that but it helps a ton.
@JakobJeanCiccone, meh I would say early childhood is the best years. No real responsibility just be a kid
@JakobJeanCiccone, Yeah me too. I feel like I picked the wrong school and it's a terrible fit, and I try to work hard in my major but I really don't know what I want to do when I leave, so it's tough. I don't see what everyone said was so great about college. It sucks
@JakobJeanCiccone, college, like everything else, is what you make of it. Works comes first, but beyond that you have freedom and choice to have great experiences with friends, at parties, meeting new people, and doing things you never would have gotten the chance to otherwise. Have you established a good basis for friends and stress relief? It’s key; I’m a mechanical engineer so the workload is damn near crippling but with a little bit of time management it’s just that, manageable
@JakobJeanCiccone, college was the absolute worst time of my life. Hated every second of it.
@WhoseLineIsItAnyway, Business isn't a useless major, dude. As long as it's specialized and not general business or management.
@basrrf, that’s exactly what I’m referring to. 👍🏼
@JakobJeanCiccone, I chose technical school over college. My mom says I’m missing out, will lack social skills and be uncultured for not going to college. The thing is, I’m much more mature than other 19yr olds so I wouldn’t fit in anyway.
@JakobJeanCiccone, I didn’t enjoy college life either and it was by the beach.
I only need a girl that can do about half that.
@A Math Dealer, Quarter of that for me
@A Math Dealer, you poor dears
Put a ring on that finger
