Being a college student is a job within itself.
In addition, we take on a job or two to earn a certain wealth.
We never mind the perils of what this extra stress can do to our health.
Our only goal is to obtain a certain wealth.
This motivation to make money can be overwhelming on top of school.
Some students find themselves dropping out because school can sometimes be an unreliable tool.
Honestly, college should be free.
Despite the GPAs and grades that you may see, college students work diligently to get their degree.
Hard work, dedication, loans, blood, sweat, and tears, all for a career that is not guaranteed.

Some professors don’t fulfill a student’s needs.
Some professors don’t teach.
Some professors don’t reach the mind or touch the hearts of the students sitting in their classroom longing for a lead.

One of my worst fears is finishing up the semester with good grades, yet having little to no knowledge about what my classes taught me this year.
At the end of the day, all of us want to make it to graduation.
Unfortunately, walking across the stage means absolutely nothing if we didn’t take any knowledge or new concepts with us.
College is a bust, but a degree is a must to build up our trust.
When it is all said and done, being a college student is a job within itself.
