It’s no secret that when you graduate from college, you’re leaving some of the best times in your life behind you. And while everyone wants to think that snagging a real job to make money is great, it really sucks. You’re all of a sudden looked at as an adult, even though you just finished cleaning up all those Natty Light’s from the party last night.
Somehow, we’ve actually “grown-up” and just realized today that we’ve been out of college for five years. Are we really that more mature though? After the sh*t that went down this past weekend, we can undeniably say, “No.”
Though we still like to party like we’re a 21-year-old, we just can’t cut it like we used to. Since that’s the case, these are the things we really miss from those terrific years.
Making Our Own Hours
Remember when you played Madden all day, then found any other reason to procrastinate all day and night until it got to be about two in the morning? Yeah, those were great days. You know why? Because you found out that you could actually still be productive during the hours 90% of the world was asleep. You know what sucks? The routine you get in going into work from nine to five.
No matter how old you get, you’ll never forget what it’s like to land a college chick. They may be smart enough to get into a university, but they’re anything but logical once you start talking to them, and tossing game their way. Even if you’re a regular Casanova, once you’re out of school, there’s little chance you’ll be surrounded by as many smokeshows as when on campus… not that you’d want to once you get older anyway. Creep.
We love Natty Light, and we could care less what people think. But the majority of our friends still think that it’s necessary to bust our balls because we’d rather spend twelve bucks on a case of brew that goes down like water, than spend ten bucks on a sixer of “good beer.” Look, we drink to get drunk. So if you’re on-board with that, than you’re welcome to hang around us. For most people, they’re just a little too boujis to lower themselves now that they can afford “the good stuff.”
The Free Time
How great was it to be done with three classes before noon? It may have sucked waking-up early, rolling into class (usually) hungover, but the fact you had the entire afternoon and night to kick it was pretty F’in cool. Now it seems all we do is work, workout, watch TV, try to drink, and cater to our girlfriends. Once you toss in watching porn or checking Facebook, your day’s pretty shot for anything fun. Oh, what we wouldn’t give to be back on our college schedule.
How great was it knowing that anything you wanted, you could get. We’re not talking about chicks – though that may apply here too – but are referring to food, college swag, and books. With a student ID that was loaded with cash, it was like having your own personal credit card, but without all the interest. We can remember at least four times we bought our parents and sisters sweatshirts and hats from the University Bookstore as Christmas presents. Go ahead and thank yourself Mom and Dad, you were paying the dime on those.
