What I Miss About College [The Weekly Ten]


This week my college goes back to school. I’m not going back. Since graduating, I’ve been wondering when it will hit me that I’m not in college anymore. Seeing all of my younger friends update their Facebook statuses about buying new books or tweet about how they better get the classes they want during drop/add is finally making it “hit me.” I’ll never be a student again.

I loved college life. LOVED IT. Was it the best years of my life? So far, yes because I’ve only been out three months. However, it better not stay the best years of my life, because that means nothing more awesome than 25 cent pitchers and pizza at 4 a.m. will ever happen to me. As excited as I am about entering the real world while all of my friends are heading back to class, I’m definitely thinking about all of the things I already miss about college.

Jessica Zaleski is an entertainment and pop culture addict. She'll watch anything on TV and her day is made when there is a huge celeb scandal (That day when TomKat announced their divorce AND Adele announced she was pregnant was better than Jessica's birthday to her). Her favorite food is sandwiches, and cheese is a close second. She graduated from the University of Florida in 2012 and is currently living and working in New York City.
