College: A magical land of opportunity, growth, and some of the most unique experiences that you can’t (and shouldn’t) get anywhere else. Don't let college students fool you; they may seem like a rare breed of overconfident kids who think they're untouchable, but don't be deceived. Believe it or not, I'm here to tell you that college students are just like you. Whether you have yet to enter this phase of your life or chose a different path after high school, don't worry, your life is surprisingly similar that of today's collegiate beings.
How can I prove this you ask? That’s easy, I have solid and verifiable proof! Over the past couple of weeks, I have reached out to my peers and requested that they send screenshots of the craziest, funniest, and wildest text conversations they've had to date.. Now some of these are a little raunchy so if you’re looking for a post-church read I will warn you to hit the little “X” in the corner of your screen, but if not I give you, college.
We'll start off slow.
College students have to eat just like everyone else.
Sometimes, they are insecure about their bodies.
Loneliness is no stranger to the collegiate individual.
They even make mistakes.
Sometimes really big mistakes..
Too often the only way to learn is by trial and error, but some people prefer to gain knowledge by way of asking a simple question!
And they say hands-on learning can be very effective for a lot of people.
College is like life, full of questions…
But sometimes they can be a little confusing.
Though we are led to believe chivalry is dead…
And even though the bar closes at 2…
Persistence is an admirable quality in and out of a University.
While college is a truly happy place for these bright individuals, home is where the heart is, and even in college, people depend on the folks back home to make it through.
To offer a new and honest perspective…
To give us those important tips we can't get anywhere else,
And most of all, to provide that one-of-a-kind entertainment.
College students really do enjoy being home more than you think.
Ultimately, there are texts that stand out to us, and conversations that don't. There are messages that we'll remember, and encounters that we won't. Here is one of the most unrelatable texts I have received to date.
At the end of the day, we all just want the reassurance that we are not alone in this world. We want to feel like we're a part of something. Having the knowledge that there are people just like us out there is a great feeling. College students are far from normal, but really, what is normal? While I hope that you, my lovely reader, never or rarely receive messages like these, but have found some sick type of enjoyment knowing that other people have. This was a fun one.
