the "sophmore"

i thought i was done blogging, but i guess i'll always have more to say.

after reading greedy kristian's "back to school" blog, i was once again inspired. the stress of finding a bus route from sandy to provo, you know, the one i'd be riding everyday for the rest of the year, and trying to scrounge up the money for books i realized i needed to find a way to vent.

so when did learning become so expensive?

i remember in highschool talking to some of my friends about the fact that their dads actually PAID them two hundred dollars for every "A" they could pull off. now, in college slash "the real world", it COSTS YOU five hundred dollars to make an attempt at even a C. and in the end, whether you've passed with flying colors, or failed the class miserably, it still cost you five hundred dollars and a LOT of reading to do so.

this is what school has become. first it was a place to play with your friends and hit the new playground. then it was a zoo for boys and girls to hook up. then it became drama. not until college did it actually become learning. and mind you, i think they should give sophmores in college a new name, because as a freshman, it's all new, the singles wards, the living on your own, being surrounded with boys and girls your age, there is no way you're getting out of there without a million friends.

but let's look at the sophmore. by now they've realized that singles wards are what everyone has told you- a meat market. some fell for it, and instead of being sophmores in college they are going into labor. the roommates ended up being brats, and living away from home means one thing to you-expensive. now education has completely lost its appeal, because now all the word means to me is two thousand dollars every three months, stressful nights and weekends, and an hour drive on a bus that smells like enchiladas at 6 a.m. sharp. don't forget the way home.

it's a wonder how or IF people actually get over it.
