    Default As a university student

    All that talk throughout high school of "college is going to be WAY harder and you'll have no free time and will be poor! ramen noodles and mac n' cheese for four years straight lol"

    I don't know if I'm doing it wrong, but I'm taking 15 credits and spend more time watching TV or playing video games than I am doing homework. Probably more so than I was in high school.

    Maybe I should wait for post-spring break weeks to kick in, but really, my hardest course right now is psychology. srsly.

    I don't have extra money because a financial aid, nor do I have a job. I've just been hoarding all my christmas and birthday over the years + high school graduation money which amounts to about $500 dollars or so. My parents buy me food and give it to me when I visit home and I'm on a meal plan so I have 14 meals a week 'for free' at any campus location, including venues like Pizza Hut, Denny's, Chick-fill-a, some awesome chinese food takeout place, a bagel shop, two school buffets and more.

    So really, I actually rarely spend money, and since I'm not allowed to have a job, I can't exactly get more anyway.

    Over half my teachers did.

    "College professors won't accept late work like high school teachers do. So to train you, I won't accept late work either. :F"

    It's gonna be interesting getting to a real college. I hear community colleges like to overload you with coursework and all the professors take the shit way too seriously to overcompensate for the fact that it's a community college. I can imagine walking into a university and having an easy time.

    Some people just go to class in their pajamas while some professors even dress casually because they want to.

    Of course, as a whole, my school is very laid back. My Intro to Computer Science professor graded us almost wholly on participation, and my Mass Media and Society professor says we don't have to take the final if we just take all the quizzes (he drops the lowest five quiz grades). You can take a nap under a tree and no one will bother you.

    School isn't hard period if you are of average intelligence, study when you need to and have good work ethic. What sets you apart is doing something different as an undergrad. I mean look at me, do you think a gpa of 3.81 is going to get me anywhere? I have the equivalent of a 3 major course load, will have studied abroad in several countries once I graduate, have exemplary letters of recommendation from various people in my field in addition to a Harvard Ph.D graduate and I will be a published undergrad; AND I STILL am worried about my future job prospects.

    College isn't hard, getting people to really notice you when you graduate is.

    I'll be a better educator than anyone that has been part of your life. Especially your middle school gym teacher....
