I’ve heard it said time and time again over my life that college is supposedly “the best years of your life.” Now as I’m drawing closer to the end of my college days, I’m thinking about it more often. Surely, this can’t be true, right? How in the world is 4 years of listening to “Oh man, I got soooo drunk this weekend. I can’t remember what happened that night” and “Yeah, I’d totally hit that” weekly and working on stupid assignments all the time the best years of my life? I’m sure things might be different if I had been more outgoing but I have never been outgoing. These past 4 years have been the longest of my life and I’m in for a long freaking life if this was as good as it gets.
Another thing that is depressing is I had a teacher tell me a while back that college is the easiest and best time to date because you see so many people daily. After college it’s hard to meet people because most of the people you interact with are the people you work with and those relationships are really tricky. I really hope this isn’t the case because if it is then I am almost definitely going to be an old cat lady. I haven’t been on a date since high school and I can could on one hand the number of guys that have been interested in me over the last 4 years.
So what do you think? Is college really the best time of your life or does it get better after? I’m really interested to hear from those who are already done with school.
