Dear Average College Student,
Hey, you. You maybe complaining that you’re broke or you’re hung over but that seems about normal. I am however the complete opposite. I am writing this out of complete frustration to be honest and I am just very fed up. I want to be the broke college student. I want to be out making memories with my friends, however I am stuck in bed. I don’t want to go out because being the only sober person in a crowd of drunks is anything but fun. In fact, I’d rather spend time alone like this because going out is a job for me. Anything average for you, is anything but average for me.
Going to the pool today?? Same! Do you have a time frame of two hours and have to drink plenty of gatorade so you don’t get dizzy and pass out?? Same!! Are you going out with your friends tonight? I’m not. The repair my body has to go through after a night out (even sober) is enough to make you wanna stay in bed. In fact, yesterday I spent the ENTIRE day sleeping because an hour and a half beach trip tore my body up. I go through period’s of questioning and frustration–even 4 years later. I’m probably even more terrified than you to start classes. My reason for not doing well in a class isn’t because I was too busy partying, rather I fall ill and physically cannot attend class anymore.
These are the days I wish I could relate to you, and make the rookie mistakes, and mess up like everyone else.
