College is stupid. I am so tired of how professors love to assign us homework over break as if we don’t have a personal life like they do. Every single time that I get assigned homework during break, they expect us to do it even though we could be on a cruise or on a trip somewhere. Then, professors end up assigning us so much homework that we have a lack of sleep, and they get mad that we aren’t engaged in class. How do they expect us to engage when we were up studying all night for a test on something that will mean nothing for our career?
Honestly, I don’t think I’m getting my money’s worth when it comes to class. We are stuck in these buildings that smell like trash and are covered in black mold. Every time I see how much I have paid to go to college, it basically gives me a heart attack. Especially when it comes to textbooks. I swear, every time I see the amount of money I need to pay for my textbooks I think, “These pages better be made out of gold.” College tuition is already expensive enough as it is. Why do we need to pay for textbooks that we will never use again? Plus, if people do end up getting a refund check from the university, they spend it on trips to Cancun or Florida. But some of us are not that rich and have to actually use it to pay rent. College means nothing. It is just bragging rights. Personally, I believe that real life experience is more valuable than sitting behind a desk all day. Plus, as an added bonus, experience is free. But that’s my opinion. I’m in college so you know I’m right.
