School’s Out Forever

But life long obligations sure as hell ain’t!

"The tears that come with textbook prices are all too real."
“The tears that come with textbook prices are all too real.”

I am not sure if it was just me that was absolutely smothered in this ‘Life gets so much better once you’re in college!’ kind of crap, but it becomes a painfully ironic punch of the face when things turn out to be the complete opposite. I know. You know it. Hell, I’m sure that even my dog knows it so why don’t we all just join hands in our little community care group circle and take deep breathes before shouting the obvious truth.

“College is NOT like it is in the movies.”

The media has a real nasty habit of making college out to be this whimsical period of life in which searching for yourself becomes some kind of painless journey and sex is pretty much a weekly occurrence. As much as I would like to engage in a weekly helping of intercourse, I very much doubt that anything of a sort is going to happen to me out here in Real Life Land. If anything, it’s been the complete opposite. Not that it’s entirely a bad thing. Especially not when you have a lovely waifu in waiting.

But the point I am trying to make here is that high school might as well be the apex of your young life because with the combined responsibilities of work, study and taxes, you’re not left a whole lot of room for anything fun. You’re gonna be strapped for cash too unless you strike gold or form a successful band that sells the fuck out. And even then, your music is going to be so horribly mainstream that you’ll find yourself coming to dislike your work so intensely that one day, you’ll end up springing your tempered rage onto the nerdy keyboardist, giving the poor schmuck an emotional scar and possible a concussion while you pile drive his self esteem through the floor.

A waste of a post? I regret nothing.
