i love learning. not school.

As I trudged around campus for hours buying books, returning books, being sent back and forth from building to building by the same people, trying to meet with advisors, taking unnecessary language placement tests and listening to professors explain the courses I'm taking, I decided that college education feels an awful lot like spending only 15 minutes in every major city in Europe. I haven't spent 15 minutes in every major city in Europe, but I would imagine it would be overwhelming, unnecessarily difficult, blurred together, and extremely expensive.
