#College Is Trending On Twitter And It Is Perfection


What is college like? It’s like really freaking stressful or the optimum time in your life to take naps according to #College. It’s kind of a bummer that even though I look back at college more than just fondly but quite romantically, what is highlighted the most about my experience is how stressed and overwhelmed I was. I don’t think it’s just #OverachieverTeachersPetProblems either. Our generation has been declared the most stressed over and over again.

College is such an interesting time of your life where you feel so infinitely open to every possibility, where you genuinely feel young but it’s also quite duplicitous in how college can make you feel old. The stresses of what it may mean to be an adult in a world where there are little prospects, where headlines tell you how lazy you are, how unemployed your generation is, how “annoying” you are as a Millennial and when the debt alone is enough to make you cry yourself to sleep at night (as I often did/do) begin to seep in. It’s a real best of times, worst of times stage in anyone’s life that will leave a lasting impression.

#College captures the comedy, chaos and stress of being a student.
