All of the rumors are true: college is, without a doubt, the best school years of your life. It’s better than high school, middle school, and elementary school combined, and that’s because you’re given freedom, a fresh start, and a slightly more mature outlook on life. Unfortunately, like so many other good things in life, it isn’t all sunshine and rainbows. College has its downsides, and some of them are crappy enough to take over the upsides, if you let them (don’t!). Few things capture the mix of excitement and dread surrounding higher education than these hilarious Tumblr posts about college.
Freshmen who are about to start their new journey: read this so you know what to expect, even the bad stuff. Upperclassmen who are about to return for yet another year, older, wiser, and more blase than ever, read this so that you can get a good laugh. One of the only things better than bragging about being in college is bonding with others while complaining about being in college. I know, that makes literally no sense, but you’ll get it once you’re right in the middle of things. Check out these hilarious Tumblr posts about college that are painfully real… they might just make it easier to start school again.
