    If I could do it again i'd go to community college for the first two years then transfer out to a full university to do major work.

    That’s what I did and I’m still amazed at how expensive it is. Can’t imagine having gone straight to a 4 year.

    I’m honestly really excited to go back. It’s my final semester and it’s gonna be so easy.

    Monday: 4 - 6:45p - Applied composition for educators K - 8

    Tuesday: 11-12:50p - Archery

    Wednesday: 4-6:45p - American Ethnic Lit

    And that’s it

    I dropped the ball on applying for financial aid so now I’m not sure if/how much I’ll be awarded
    Buuuuut assuming that all comes through...
    I’m so ready to start my senior year. 5 classes each semester is gonna kill me, especially since I have to leave my house at like 7 this semester which is going to suuuuuck.

    But I just am so close to graduating I can taste it and I just need it. I don’t even want to think about if I have to take a semester break cause of financial aid -___-

    Fortunately, I received a lot of grants. I think I’ll graduate with only 13k in debt. Some of my friends are 40 - 50k in debt.

    Yeah I'm 35k. All state school. Even with my STEM degree and a 75k salary, it's a burden living in Boston. It's crazy.

    shittiest taste 2k18

    Graduated three months ago, just chiming in to agree here. I miss college more than anything and frankly my heart hurts every time I think about the fact I'm not going back in a couple weeks. I miss my sorority, I miss my fellow theatre department chucklefucks, I miss some of my professors, and hell, I even miss some of my classes.

    Probably helped by the fact that academics were a breeze for me and I got good grades with very little effort (unlike high school) so my experience is probably quite an outlier but even so. In college it was like every day was a wild new experience. Post-grad life has been an exercise in making the most of a mediocre existence. Realizing your gender identity halfway through college and exiting back into the "real world" where you've never been public about your gender in before probably doesn't help either, as opposed to back there where everybody knew about my gender and everybody respected it.

    College was stressful and being broke sucked but I'd still honestly take it over the intense doldrums of temp work and job searching. Oh well. At least I don't have a crippling amount of debt. Someday things will get interesting again. Someday.

    I'm Emotional, I Hug the Block

    I’m still working on my master’s thesis and I will never miss that, but I do miss going to class etc. I have always either been self employed or part of the family business, which is great in many ways, but can also be isolating. College was the antidote for that.

    My financial aid officially hasn’t gone through so I have to go meet with the advisors on Monday. Give me all your good vibes that it works out because I’m kind of panicking and I don’t know what I’ll do if I have to defer a semester

    Fun must be always. Prestigious

    so my Spanish class is fine and my geography class is super cool because the teacher is so into it.

    It makes it a lot easier when the teacher can lecture for days. He also only writes his notes on the board so that is different from the usual pace lately.

    my history class however has just been so boring that I even get sleepy since it’s a lecture class. I don’t know how I’m going to survive even if history is my major.

    Anyone have any backpack recs?! Looking for functional yet stylish!

    It's way too late, or much too early Prestigious

    Idk if this counts as stylish but it's pretty minimal, fits a lot and it's not too expensive. I've had it for about a year and it's still going strong.

    Financial aid came thruuuu!!
    I drove an hour to school today just for them to tell me oh it only just got processed today, you’ll get your offer soon, btw you could have just called! Lmao
    So I got home and I got the offer!

    For some reason I am being offered less than usual for spring semester so I’m not sure if I can appeal that or find out why but in the mean time I have fall semester covered and it’s the biggest weight off my shoulders and I wanna cry

    did your semester already start?? @Dog with a Blog

    also I spoke too soon and everythings NOT peachy now, because my school offers so few classes that actually satisfy my major. I will actually have to for sure take 1 or 2 classes over the summer after graduating- if they even offer them, that is...
    It really sucks. I'd take 6 classes in a semester if I had to, but they just literally aren't there to take.
