Every. Single. Night. I have a dream about college. It is only 10 days until I get shipped off and I am just SO excited. However, that is when I am awake. In my dreams I keep seeing myself running out of paper, pencils, notecards and not being able to study. I believe that these dreams are trying to tell me something, and that something is “don’t fuck up“.
In high school, I was not really one that would be found studying in the library (ever) or go home and open a book (didn’t even bring them home). I was the gal that kind of just slid by without doing the work that I probably should have. And you know what? It didn’t really change my life. That being said, I know that I will really have to focus in college.
My major of choice is Mechanical Engineering as I am a more mathy/sciencey type of person. I am NOT the type of girl that finds great peace of mind from reading Plato…nope, not me. I am the type of person who likes to be challenged and mentally stimulated, which you can probably tell from my personality.
So, given that I plan on making enough money by the time I am 30 that I can retire, I am really going to need to focus in college. And not just for the sake of finding wealth and a good job. Also because I would rather be poor and not wear Louboutins, than be one of those “Sorority Life or No Life” girls come senior year. PUH-LEASE! So if I want to have a life, other than that on sorority row, I am going to need to put my face in my books and study.
Now, I’ve been thinking about the pros and cons to spending time studying in college.
- Hot men study in the library (especially those from grad school)
- High GPA = High Pay
- Will not murder liver #DOM
- Will meet new people in study groups
- Fun summer internship
- Weight-loss (no time to eat)
- No wine allowed in the library
So, yeah. I think it’s fair to say that the pros outweigh the cons.
And let’s be real, if I’m not studying for the GPA, I may find my future husband in the Law Library, get wifed, and graduate with an MRS in boys.
Basically that means that there is no excuse for me not to study! <3
