Playlist - Scholastic Sadness

A few months ago, during the final days of high school, I specifically remember telling one of my friends "I am SOOOOOO done with high school!!!!11! And I know that in 3 months, I'm going to be crying about how much I miss high school and how much I hate university, but that is irrelevant right now!"
When I said that, months ago, I said it with a sense of hope. A sense that maybe university wasn't going to be that bad and that hopefully it might even be better than high school.


Very wrong.

After my first day, I was ready to quit. On my second day, I knew that I would need to win the lottery that weekend or become ridiculously famous. Either one would be fine as long as university was postponed. Unfortunately, n'either of those things happened. Instead, I've had to endure university for what it is for this semester. I should probably highlight the fact that I'm not a rez student, which may or may not have an impact on my opinion. Regardless, I'm not a fan of university. Yes, the freedom is nice  but that doesn't make up for the friends I will most likely lose touch with, the fact that your proffs don't really care about you or your success, and the fact, the whole class is basically online, I also don't really do well with learning in large classes (250 students doesn't work for me) and the uncertainty that gnaws in the pit of my stomach asking me "is this really what I want to be doing?" (the answer is no). I always had an idea that in university, you would study things that interest you. Yet here I am, postponing studying for a test in communicational organizational (don't ask me what it's about - I still don't know)* (Edit: I wrote this a little while back ago, I've finished all my finals but am still unsure about organizational communication...)

The transition from cushiony high school to bear boned university is not easy, and people make sure it isn't. They call it the "real world" and tell you that you should get used to it.  Disregarding the fact that we're basically unstable children who have no idea what we're doing in the world. In the "real world" you're not expected to react like a normal human being? I feel like that's an idea imposed on us by society. We don't offer a hand because people told us not to. That's just how it feels. I am fortunate to attend university and I'm sure there's a kid out there who would sell their soul for my opportunity but that doesn't diminish the fact that I hate it. *attempt at not sounding like a spoiled brat*

But in these times of  uncertainty and teen angst, I've relied on my musical buddies to get me through em. Thank goodness for BeyoncĂ© releasing an album because now I have so much more to be thankful for. Without further ado,
