If you thought high school was hard, try college.

I Asked 10 College Students What They Hate Most About College Life

Most people, at least me, seemed to think high school was the hardest and most boring experience in their life. College has that excitement of making a bunch of friends from everywhere across the world, choosing your classes to take on your own time, and generally just having a lot more freedom.

However, with that freedom and fun comes a lot of responsibility. College is a fun time, but can be extremely stressful and challenging for each individual in different ways. I asked 10 college students what they feel is the hardest part about college.

1. “The school work of course. I wish I could just be in college, hang out with my friends, chill, but not go to class or do anything academic.”

2. “I hate the quarter system. We always have midterms even during Week 10. It goes by so fast that by the time I realize I’m failing a class, the class is basically over.”

3. “I hate the peer pressure. Not just academically, but socially too. You need to be cool and go out and drink and party, but at the same time, be able to control yourself and not go overboard or your reputation is at stake.”

4. “Greek life. It’s a f***ing cult and they think they’re better than everyone else.”

5. “I hate how fast rumors spread. I had sex with one girl and she told everyone I sucked. Now, I have an embarrassing nickname and no chance with most of the girls at school anymore.”

6. “The fact that everyone is so attractive and is always at the gym working out. I try, but I just take too many classes to devote that much time to looking hot. I don’t understand how girls show up to their 8 a.m. classes in a full face of makeup!”

7. “I hate how so many people just seem so repulsed by me. I know I’m not the most social, but every time it seems like I made a friend, they’ll block me on social media a couple days later. I’m not even sure what I’m doing wrong, but I don’t want to have some kind of messy confrontation.”

8. “I actually miss home. I thought I wanted to get away from my parents, but I wished I had went to a college at least somewhat driving distance from my hometown.”

9. “I hate how lonely I get. I’ll just be in my room, feeling like a loser. I don’t know if anyone else feels like this. Sometimes, even when I’m with my friends, I feel lonely. I don’t want to go out of my way to force people to make me happy because I know this is my problem and I need to get it out of my head.”

10. “I hate that no matter how hard you try, you still get a C in the class. You can go to every office hours and study so much, but the class will be so hard. And it’s so hard to ask for help sometimes. You actually have to reach out, which is different from high school when everything was handed to you.”

The Superbowl is the biggest football event of the year, and the 50-year history of the competition has seen a lot of memorable moments. The event first began in 1967, when the first AFL-NFL World Championship Game was played in Los Angeles. Since then, the NFL has grown from a small regional competition to an international phenomenon. Over the course of the last 50 years, the Superbowl has seen some amazing plays, memorable moments and incredible records. This includes Tom Brady's record of five Superbowl titles, the first time the Patriots won three consecutive championships, and the Steelers' record of six Superbowl titles. The event has also become a cultural phenomenon, with millions of people tuning in each year to watch the big game. There are now commercials, halftime shows, and other events that make the Superbowl a true American spectacle.

11 Genres Of Music That Originated From Black Culture

Numbers don't lie, up in the charts many times, black culture has defined the music industry. Music is a worldly language that can be understood by people all over the world. You bet black culture has taken over the music industry, but not from the way you may think. I'm not talking about their prominent presence in the rap game, but the origins of eleven different genres of music. Black culture is always using their heritage and ancestral knowledge to transmute the current energy to a higher frequency. Personally, I'm not surprised that many of these music genres have originated from black culture. Thankfully, I've been able to grow up in a diverse environment. I can only thrive in a diversity of friends.
