learned about this in chemistry, it’s called “palcohol”
There’s this romantic delusion that once you graduate high school, you get to leave all the dipshits and assholes you had to put up with behind and meet the most extraordinary people you’ll ever meet in your life.
What fucking crock
Where do you think all the dipshits and assholes you went to high school with went? They went to college! Maybe not the college you’re going to, no, but that means you’re getting somebody elses dipshits and assholes!
And they’re not going to disappear after college
They’re going to be your co-workers and bosses, neighbors and employees!
Admittedly some people grow out of it, but for the most part, assholes bullied you onthe playground, beat you up in high school, threw up on your dorm couch in college and are going to show up late to work every over day when you’re gainfully employed.
Beautiful people are everywhere as much as assholes, and they always have been. There are wonderful people who never went to college and now make sandwhichs at your local deli. There are the wonderful pepole who bust their asses keeping up public services like the bus and train. There are wonderful accountants and doctors too. and yes, there are wonderful people in college
but there’s not some special shipment coming in on a kawaii desu lover truck, waiting to pull into your local college, just because it’s college
