    Re: College life

    I LOVE University life!! way better than Highschool! The Uni I go to is right near the coast 5 minutes away from the beaches and even closer to major shopping centers ^^" err.. not that I got there instead of classes

    nah! i'm not that bad, I love all but one class this semester.

    Don't worry, once you get into it, you'll be fine! I guess it seems scarier because you are going so far away, but once you get used to the place and the people, it will be a great experiance. heck, starting uni/college itself can be a bit daunting, I was there last year ( but hey! I only live 15 mins away from my uni ^^") But you'll be right

It's just to stop random people from going in and stealing stuff.....
    Well... we're not in jail but it happens that this University is a General Baptist University... so "some" stuff is not allowed in the dorms.... like "extreme display of affection".... some ppl brake da rules therefore we lost the priviledge of visitation in the rooms during the week.... TT_TT.... guys can come over all week long to the lobby, that's it.....
    We also have a e-key.... just the gurls though...

Our university used to have really big parties, but they super cut back, so parties are a wee bit limited now.
    Hmmmmm....... u miss a looooot!!!!!!! errrrrrr...... I live 8h away from my home so i live on campus.... there is always stuff going on.... even when ur trying to study or to sleeeeeeeeeep..... but it is fun anyways.....

With highschool, you have absolutely no choice, it's just something really boring that you have to do. Also, for the most part, there's less work per term...you have generally have about two essays, and one final exam and that's it...though the essays require more effort than in high school....

    College is about independance yes, and it is pretty cool.... but one has to be more responsible for oneself.... it is not only about paties and fun... there is a looooot of sacrifices to do. I love college and I am glad to be studying what I like.... but it demands a lot... it is great though 'cos then I'll be a quality professional.
    My point is: don't get a wrong (movie) idea of what a college life is...
    I do not hate high school because it is hard.

    It's not.

    I hate high school because it is just overrated. It's stupid, and I don't like it.

    I understand that college is about studying and responsibilty..but you have to live your life as well.

    There is such a thing as partying too much.. but people do have lives, you know?

    Re: College life

    Ugh, college life. It varies on your personal experiences...as for me...its ok. I wasnt too "bright" in high school, my grades were average...so I say. It really helps you out if your HS grades were good, seriously.

    For those still in HS, work your @$$ off so that you dont have to suffer through college by taking out loans and workin your butt off while you go to classes to pay for it!! (>_<)/

    College is ok for me. Not too bad as long as I like the classes. I've tried my hand at a couple programming classes and art classes. My skills in both are...ok. A LITTLE over average but no where good as....the "good".

    Midterms and Finals....aaaaaggghhhh!! Dont even mention it!! The memories still haunt me!! @_@!!! Its hell working jobs and trying to work on your projects with little or no sleep!!

    ...I'm taking it easy next sememster. (=_=)

    Re: College life

    Going to college would be a lot easier for your careers and all, so far I found the only way to become a policemen and going down to new mexico and go to a academy, and of course a clear background (no being in trouble with the law), My g'f said she wanted to become a docter or a nurse, so thats a lot of school work I hear, said that it takes maybe about 10 years of knowledge.

    Why HS is stupid??? Don't u prepare there to go to the U???
    If u put "a life" in front of ur future... ur screwed......
    Yes whitey I do have a life..... but when ur here u don't think that much of life being party.... one matures ya know........ I don't see HS the same way I saw it when I was 16........ I was really stupid and crazy on my teen years..... and of course that I don't see my life as I saw it when I was a kid..... on my teen years......

    A suggestion: if u want to get to college/university good, study hard on hs and get good grades... if you are GREAT FOR YOU!!!
    glad that u want to keep w/ ur studies, it is the best decision to take.... just make sure that you really want to go for the right reasons. This life can be as fun as u want.... but also it is very hard to keep up.... but if u have well defined ur goals and what u want to do... ur good...
    But now... get focus on HS and enjoy... ur going to be part of it just for a period of life... then it is over....
