    FUCK COLLEGE

    I am less than 10 credits away from getting my degree (after 5+ years), and I'm literally to the point where I don't care anymore.

    College has almost completely destroyed any enjoyment that I once derived from practicing my craft. I am so burnt out that I can barely write a six-page paper, do required reading for class, or even get up to go to class. My horn has sat in it's case since April 31st, and although I love playing, the idea of practicing stresses me out even more. If it weren't for all the money that I've already spent, I probably would have quit a year ago.

    Fuck you, college, for destroying my soul.

    Everyone fucking says that. I will be really sad if I do miss it, because that will mean that my life has gotten progressively worse over the following year.

    Just wait till you get to start paying back student loans if you had any, that's the real fun...especially if the job market isn't in your favor.

    It is the painful truth!

    You definitely miss some of the things about college a while after you finish it. I missed the freedom of class schedules and the social interactions I had when I was in university once I started to work. Went back a few years after to do a post-grad and got my fill again, only to miss having money.

    You will miss things about each.

    Take a semester off and get your head straight and take a deep breath.

    I graduated last year and I miss that life... I went to get a degree in Journalism and, in a year, out of my graduate class of 68 only 2 have landed full-time, fully-paid positions. The market for jobs is the worst most people in my profession have ever seen.

    The whole social side as well is missing from my life. I used to get up and instantly find a group of people who'd go to the gym, hit the beach, go for a few drinks etc. Now, I have to organise everything days in advance so we can all get time off work.

    The only benefit a working life has over college life is the financial aspect.

    I personally love college, it can get stressful at times but after doing a co-op for 7 months I realize the stresses of college don't even begin to compare with those of the real world, so savor those last few moments.

    I think part of your exhaustion is taking so long to finish school. What are you studying that it's taking so long? Just tough it out for just a little more, I know you'll be fine.

    I love how colleges make you take courses/electives that are totally unrelated to your major. Fucking money hungry pricks. That's what makes me hate college, and the fact that we even have to pay for college.

    I love college (no Asher Roth), couldn't have asked for a better experience thus far..

    sounds like you're a music major or something - not exactly my cup of tea and not sure why it took 5+ years?

    ya, because you will finally be teaching band to a bunch of HS shitheads who dont care. lol im just guessin though. thats what my cousin is doing, about to graduate after years of school for music (he was a french horn guy too) and he is going off to be a band director at some highschool.

    i fucking love college man, you will see that once you get into the real world, it fuckin sucks. its boring, same shit every day. atleast in college you get new chicks to check out every 4 months.

    Eh. I felt like you when I was almost in the same position. I sucked it up, graduated, got a good job, and never looked back. Finish strong and you'll be glad you did...maybe.
