Hello my fellow TRF'ers. I'm sitting here in the library studying with a friend for our college algebra exam tomorrow morning. This is my second semester here at Embry-Riddle and I have mixed emotions about college in general. I really like the academic side of college. I'm doing work that is really challenging which is great. All my professors are very dedicated to teaching and are very acessible. My computer programming teacher, for example, will help you until you don't want help anymore. It is very obvious that they love to teach. On the other hand, I am really growing tired of the freshman dorms and some of my fellow students. I'd say a good 90% of them are immature idiots. They stay up all night and make a din that could wake the dead. They damage things in the hall and make a mess and are just generally destructive. I feel bad for the groundskeeping staff because they have to clean up after people who break things. Part of me feels like a huge geek for not joining in and having "fun" with them but I have to wake up at 6:30am Monday through Friday for class. I think I have every right to get sleep as they do. The way I figure it, my family is paying way too much money to send me here for me to act stupid and give anything less than %110 effort in my studies. So far, my hard work has paid off; I am getting great grades and even scored an internship with Pratt & Whitney Space Propulsion this summer but my social life is all but non-exsistent. I don't have many real friends here which really blows. Did (or are you currently) having problems like mine in college?
