Adulting in College is Hard

Adulting in College is Hard

By Shelynn Handy

 

There isn’t a single class that I could have taken in high school that could have prepared me for college. Of course, they went over the proper subject matter: math, English, science, and all things closely related. However, no one told me how hard it would be to simply wake up and be an adult every single day.

They told me how it would be to get assignments done on time, and how hard it would be to get up for an eight AM class, but no one told me how hard it would be to balance school and social relationships. No one told me how hard it would be to have a job and take classes full time. No one told me how hard it would be to go to class and go to work and try to find time to go grocery shopping. No one ever told me when I was supposed to find time to cook said groceries!

Being an adult in college is truly a different kind of struggle that no one ever could have prepared me for.
