I Can’t Wait Til I Go to Hikeschool, Billy

This is what I want to do to anyone embarking on their freshman year of college. But I can’t because throttling people until their cheeks jiggle isn’t usually appropriate. But Billy is right. Stay in school. Stay as long as you can. Cherish it. Because real life? Sucks. Don’t believe me, just look at this graph of Excitement over Time and draw your own conclusions.

  1. I’m not agreed with that graph… in fact after certain age enthusiasm is not a visible enthusiasm but a hidden one, an excitement burning with a cold flame, the kind of excitement when I drool. That’s why I buy bibs wholesale. Based on that alone you could label me a romantic. Nice post!

  2. I loved it when I went back to college after years of real life … best years of my existence. Now, I’m back to reality … it can suck if one’s not crazy.

Feel like you can relate? Commiserate! Let me know what you think:
