Okay, I Admit It. I Hate College.

Okay, I Admit It. I Hate College.

The best 4 years of your life? More like the WORST 4 years of your life!

I remember those days back in high school when I looked forward to going to college. In fact, it was all I talked about most of the time. For some reason, I was stupid enough to believe that my college years would be some of the happiest years of my life (I sure thought wrong on that one) and that I would be surrounded by some mature, determined young people who are ready to prepare for the real world (I guess I thought wrong on that one too). Now as a third-year college student, I have began to hate college. Why do I hate college? Well, let's just say that there are several reasons. I will break them all down for you.

I hate college because the workload can get overwhelming at times, especially after midterms. I know that all too well because for the past couple semesters, I had to take 18 credits due to changing my major and failing a class (that statistics course was my worst nightmare and I'm currently retaking it this semester. Fortunately, my overall grade in that class so far is an A-. Hopefully is stays in the A-B range). Anyway, the overwhelming workload is even worse for someone taking anything over 17 credits. On the bright side, it is all worth it because last semester and the semester before, I ended up getting As and Bs in my classes.

I hate college because some professors get snippy if you don't understand something. In my opinion, that's just disrespectful. If someone doesn't understand how to do something, then they don't understand how to do it. It's the professor's job to talk to those who don't understand the material before class, after class, or during office hours. I mean, come on. Why make someone feel stupid about it?

I hate college because some people are snobby, immature, and care more about drinking than being considerate or courteous towards others. In fact, people like this make me even more stressed out than I have to be. I try to ignore people like that, but sometimes it's hard. Don't even get me started on people who talk too loud in the library (whatever happened to the famous "be quiet in the library" rule?)

I hate college because it is way too expensive. Why does it have to cost so much to prepare to get a good job? It's kind of silly if you ask me.

Now that I have broken down all the things that make me hate college so much, I have to say that I don't have to put up with it much longer because after this semester, I only have one more year left. I may hate college and college life, but after I graduate in May of 2018 and get a job in my area of study, I will look back and realize that college was worth it.

The Glory Of Moving Far, Far Away

There is beauty in new beginnings.


In this day and age, people everywhere seem to have wanderlust. I like to say that July is when it is at its peak, especially for me. I am now adjusting to life in Coatesville, Pennsylvania with my family after moving from our previous home in Greensboro, North Carolina.

This is not my first time moving away, and it will certainly not be the last one either, but it still feels different to me. The main reason for that is because this is my last summer before I graduate from college.

It not only marks the end of my entire childhood, but it symbolizes the end of freedom. While I am still familiarizing myself with my new home, I want to take the time to write down how I feel right now.

Finding New Places

I am originally from Blacksburg, Virginia. I spent most of elementary school there, and I managed to stay for all four years of high-school as well.

So, it is safe to say that I know it pretty well. I loved living there, but I fell into this routine of frequency. I knew where I wanted to go out to eat and what movie theater I liked the most.

However, all of the places in Coatesville are new to me right now. Who knows what kind of memories I will have from all of the restaurants and stores here?

There is beauty in new beginnings, and I am already looking forward to stepping into a Wawa.

Happiness At Home

Fortunately, the moving process went very smoothly from the beginning for all of us. I kept the necessary belongings with me for the car ride and reunited with my other belongings quickly since the movers arrived the day after us.

One of my favorite things about coming to a new house is having a different room. I like sorting all of my stuff and thinking of crafty ways to arrange everything. The yellow walls actually closely resemble my dorm room which helps me think of ideas for the upcoming semester.

Plus, I have two side-by-side windows which give me a gorgeous view to our front yard. The first observation I made was all of the green surrounding us. The trees and grass just paint the entire neighborhood. It must be a sign for me to relax and enjoy the outdoors from time to time.

Make It Count Every Day

Like everything else in life, summer does not last forever. Even though it is not always easy to live in a new place, I am determined to make the most of it.

On one of our first nights at our new house, my sister chose the movie "Titanic" to watch that night. This is my most beloved movie and it made me feel more at home.

I cannot finish this section without giving credit to Jack Dawson. He once said, "I figure life is a gift and I do not intend on wasting it."

Since it has been almost a week since our journey here started, we have become accustomed to our family rituals including walking the dogs around the circle and watching the weekly showings of "America's Got Talent."

I am so glad that I have the chance to live in Pennsylvania and I am looking forward to the future. I am now more inspired to explore the area around me and learn more about myself.
