Ode to Leaving College

Oh, how I can't wait to graduate!

No more classes, or homework, or tests or quizzes. No more exams and reviews and staying up all night. No more cramming and freshmen and big words and papers. No more textbooks and student loans and crappy food. No more projects and critiques and writing resumes. No more being broke and registration or being late to class. No more campus bathrooms and stupid PCs. No more blackboard and CAD and the stinky feet smell of the computer lab. No more walking up tons of stairs every day or tripping on the carpeting. No more almost getting hit by crazy student drivers, no more park and ride. No more insolent classmates or group projects. No more tuition and fees for things you never use. No more extra credit or people stealing your chair or "borrowing" your supplies. No more stress and humiliation and turning things in late. No more doctors notes and lame excuses and 6-tech. No more chalkboards or the smell of dry-erase markers. No more flashcards or campus activities. No more speeches or novels or dialogues. No more debates, no more socialists, no more silly liberals. No more EUC, no more Yum-Yums, no more windowless rooms. But most of all, NO MORE SCHOOL!

Oh, how I can't wait to graduate!

  1. I totally agree - except for "no more student loans". Unfortunately those stick around for a while!!! Congrats on being almost through.

  4. I'm with Tom. After you've been gone a while, you start missing the things you hated so much. I especially miss the schedule of student life. Start at 9. Take a couple classes. Done at 1. Just spend time hanging out.... Or at least that's the way I've romanticized it. I think I've tried to blank out the all-night cramming sessions.
