College

What several people have said to me about college:
  1. You have to go or you'll be fixing toilets for the rest of your life
  2. You can't go or you'll go OTD and become a mumar.
  3. If you go you'll become an alcoholic and a drug addict
How it measures up with reality:
  1. I missed the first class of this semester because I was fixing a toilet.
  2. I daven vasikin
  3. I was at a wedding last night where I was the only current college student at my table and the only person who never smoked weed.

Ya, but wedding= alcohol.

Yay!! Welcome to the world of college! I just started too. I stopped caring what people had to say about it. I figured, if I'm going to hell, I might as well be knowledgeable before I get there!

yahoo! The BB community is getting educated. Since last semester, Modeh, Altie, and Cheerio have all started school!

Altie said...

E, you are having an effect on people.

Cheerio said...

ah, reality. it's beautiful.

-E: Who says they were uneducated before then?

Altie said...

Thank you Mottel! I second that.

I wonder if studying fine art counts...otherwise I'm still unedumacated.
Anyways, that's pretty funny. Good luck.

Mottel is an expert on education because his wife has a masters.

College prepared me for life, but ruined my liver, credit and reputation.

Of course there's a lot of knowledge in universities: the freshmen bring a little in; the seniors don't take much away, so knowledge sort of accumulates....

I myself am in college now, and i love it. dont listen to what people say and dont care what they think. Hats of to you man

Actually, I started sophmore year. This wasn't even the first time I missed class to fix a toilet, it was just the first time I missed the first class. Great start, huh?

E:Computer Science. If you ask me "Computers? So you want to be a secretary?" I will personally track you down, murder you bloodily and post pictures here.


When I finally snap they're probably going to use this comment to prove I was always deranged.

Altie said...

I would pay for those pictures.

just curious said...

What can you do with computer science besides be a secretary? maybe you can be a receptionist?
