The simplicity of stupid. : College
As a high school student coming into college it is a pretty freaking huge step, I mean two months before you were having to ask to go to the bathroom. Now your here and they expect you to pay bills, turn in assignments on your own, never ask permission and keep up with a schedule that can change week to week depending on your teacher.
Its official they have lost their mind.
College is nothing but lectures, assignments, parties, boys, and work. We come to college to get smarter and further our education but yet all college does to us is simply make us stupid. We choose to go to parties vs. study and spend money on new clothes and alcohol instead of rent. We don't have to do these things but we choose to. It is fun we laugh with friends we make memories, isn't that what college is for?
Once we enter this world of college where there is a different party to go to every weekend we make great memories but stupid choices. It is as simple as saying no. Saying no to that drink, or no to that guy that wants to kiss you after that drink in hopes of a night together after. As the first semester of college comes to an end you look back and look at the damage that is done. People say you should never have regrets but I on first hand can say after my first semester I have about a million and five. I moved out on my own didn't have to ask permission to have people over or when to be home or even what I ate. It was like It was almost to much responsibility at once.
I by no means want to say us a freshly new college students aren't responsible some are and some have to be just to survive. I look back though and think if I wouldn't have gone and drank that last drink I wouldn't have woke up to someone I know but didn't want to know on that level. I wouldn't have to be praying for a low B in a comp 1000 class or that I have enough money saved for rent coming up. It is little regrets that make you realize how simple it is to be just a little bit stupid within just a few hours.
We are strong kids just trying to figure out who we are, and I personally found out it is hard soul searching while in college. You try to find someone there you are somewhat compatible with just to have to talk to about these simply stupid things that happen. But regardless of how much you drank, or spent , or didn't spend on studying, these simply stupid things make us a simply stronger person.
