Is really like…
– You’re older than most of your classmates.
-College stories and gossip do not phase you. They’re just annoying.
-You have very, very little money. So, if you get hungry or thirsty you can’t just go get something. The last thing you want is campus food, anyways.
-Constantly need to figure out how to get back and forth to school.
-Have to stay on campus several hours a day. Can’t just go home. It takes away gas and time.
-If you have to cancel something for personal/financial reasons — you’re the bad guy.
-Many people don’t understand that you don’t live on campus — and don’t want a social life with people you will never see again.
-People just assume you’re the same age as everyone else — and live on campus
-Much older people call you a kid. You don’t know if it’s because they see everyone that way — or if you should be offended because you’re not.
-Hardly see your partner. Schedules make it difficult.
-Don’t know if you will graduate.
