College Time

Thanks for the guest post by Donn Schroeder

Being in college was SO much fun but now that I’m out in the real world looking for a job I really miss some of the things I took for granted back then. Of course I miss the obvious stuff like sleeping late and the free student gym and all the partying but what I actually miss the most is the opportunity to learn all the time. I just love learning and now that I’m not in school anymore I really miss classes and lectures and all that business. I don’t know, maybe it’s because the job market is so bad and now I’ve got to think about adult things like taxes and Direct Energy and getting my oil changed, but I really do wish sometimes that I’d gone back to grad school instead of trying to get to the real world sooner. There’s something to be said for taking the easy way out and I sure wish I had thought it through a little bit more before I decided on the “real world.”

  1. HI Betchai, I approve your thoughts, The learning part of college and the privileges we get as students are often overlooked which we realize only when get out of the college campus. Its human tendency to miss that life more because it never involved serious adult like responsibilities and now we fear the due dates of paying bills that look so enormous.

    1. hi Naqvee, thank you so much for sharing your thoughts, I too agree with the thoughts of the author ( this is a guest post). I was one of those who jumped too early to the real world and was overwhelmed in my first year with so much responsibility of paying my own bills.
