Memes are one of the greatest things on the internet. They really help me feel better when I'm having a bad day. As a college student, I have seen so many memes that I relate to. There are more memes out there but here are a few of my favorite.

Yes, I'm an Education major, and yes, I love it. Your opinion of the field won't change my mind about my future. If you ever happen to come across an Education major, make sure you steer clear of saying these things, or they might hold you in from recess.
1. "Is your homework just a bunch of coloring?"
Um, no, it's not. We write countless lesson plans and units, match standards and objectives, organize activities, differentiate for our students, study educational theories and principles, and write an insane amount of papers on top of all of that. Sometimes we do get to color though and I won't complain about that.
2. "Your major is so easy."
See above. Also, does anyone else pay tuition to have a full-time job during their last semester of college?
3. "It's not fair that you get summers off."
Are you jealous? Honestly though, we won't really get summers off. We'll probably have to find a second job during the summer, we'll need to keep planning, prepping our classroom, and organizing to get ready for the new school year.
4. “That's a good starter job."
Are you serious..? I'm not in this temporarily. This is my career choice and I intend to stick with it and make a difference.
5. “That must be a lot of fun."
Yes, it definitely is fun, but it's also a lot of hard work. We don't play games all day.
6. “Those who can't, teach."
Just ugh. Where would you be without your teachers who taught you everything you know?
7. “So, you're basically a babysitter."
I don't just monitor students, I teach them.
8. “You won't make a lot of money."
Ah yes, I'm well aware, thanks for reminding me. Teachers don't teach because of the salary, they teach because they enjoy working with students and making a positive impact in their lives.
Choosing a college is a very difficult decision that you have to make your senior year of high school, and I feel that I made the exact right choice.
I applied to multiple colleges, and most were far away and out of state.
I am very glad I decided not to leave Oregon though because I don't think I could start an entirely new school, and be far away from my family at the same time. I really enjoy that I am a quick two-hour drive away from my home because if I have a bad week at school, I can just drive home to see my family. I could not imagine not having this option.
I feel like it is important for seniors who are picking their schools to know that college is hard, and you will get homesick, but being close to home makes it a little bit easier.
Also, there is nothing wrong with choosing a college that is close to home, because college is still a new experience and you will meet tons of new people. When coming to the University of Oregon I didn't fully realize that I would meet so many new friends, because I thought I would know a lot of people who went here. It is nice to meet new people, but at the same time have the friendly faces of people from your hometown around you.
With all this being said college has made me realize that I am now ready to grow and move away from my home state but I needed the last three years to fully be prepared.
Not everyone feels the same way about going to a college in-state, but I am glad I made that decision because I don't think I would have been as happy at any other school.
