College is an amazing time, but it’s also full of new and big challenges – living on your own, having to feed yourself, getting yourself to class, keeping your grades up, and all of the rest – and sometimes it takes quite a few fails before kids can start to figure it out.
I’ll let you decided where these 15 kids fall on the scale, but I’m thinking it’s not too close to being actual adults.
#15. This is honestly kind of goals.
i just saw a guy in the library cry for five or so minutes and then his phone alarm went off and he just? stopped crying? and went right on back to work

#8. But seriously, why is that?
In highschool I woke up at 6 am, went to classes for 7 hours, went straight to track practice and ran 8 miles, then went home and did homework without taking a nap..in college I can't even take a shower without needing a nap

#7. I wouldn’t tell people that story, TBH.
ok, i have a confession.
one time when i was doing a chem lab i purposefully ripped a hole in my glove, poured a (mild) acid on my hand, & my skin got irritated so my professor let me leave early
all so i could go get an Einsteins Bagel.
thank u for ur time
