8 Things That Make You Consider Dropping Out

Sometimes we get the short end of the stick

8 Things That Make You Consider Dropping Out

There are always things that we don't want to hear in life. In college, some of those things can make or break you, and honestly, usually its break. As a college student/human being, these are some of the things that shatter my already fragile college soul.

1. "I have four-wheel drive and enjoy the snow."

So there is no hope of your professor canceling your class due to inclement weather. Great. This is when you walk your slowest from fear of slipping and walk through all buildings on your way as to stay warm.

2. "Here is your list of assignments to finish over break."

What? Please repeat? do you not understand that it is called a break, because I need a break...

3. "Perfect attendance gets extra points at the end of the semester."

Thank you, Satan. And for my 8 a.m. You truly no how to motivate your students. And we all know that you made this part of the class because it is horrible and attendance would surely go down otherwise.

4. "The dining hall is closing early."

What? I literally have no food in my room other than sad popcorn and a jar of peanut butter, this will be nutritious and satisfying. We literally pay to be fed on campus because we can't do it ourselves.

5. "Your card is saying insufficient funds" or "It's been declined."

Lovely, I really need this shampoo, notebooks and various other things I've found walking through Walmart, but I am too poor.

6. "They're in a relationship."

Of course, they are. Why else would I be interested in them? Also, do you know who they are so I can stalk his/her Insta? Taken doesn't mean we can't admire right?

7. "Payments are due."

Yes, I love the emails reminding me of all the money I could be spending on something fun, like traveling, or expansive food. Below is how I visualize the school when around these times.

8. "I got the job you've applied for multiple times!"

This isn't how they say it but this is exactly how I hear it. So congratulations on the money I have applied to make more than once. On-campus jobs just don't make sense.

But fear not my fellow college strugglers, keep your heads up because summer break is soon!
