A lot of things have changed since college, and I'm not just talking about the size of my ass or my ability to handle my liquor (although I couldn't really handle it back then and I certainly can't handle it now so no change there). I felt inspired to do a college me versus adult me post just to illustrate the aging process. Can y'all tell I'm 29? Kind of obsessed with the age thing right now...anyway...
College Me: Let's go out to the bar and get HAMMERED!
Adult Me: Let's get hammered on my couch.
College Me: Chinese food at 2am? BEST IDEA EVER!
Adult Me: Chinese food at 2am? That decision will stick with me for days.
College Me: Pull an all nighter? No problem, let's go pick up some Red Bull!
Adult Me: Not even a triple shot of espresso could keep me from falling asleep on the couch by 9pm.
College Me: I'm so hungover. Let's start drinking again!
Adult Me: I'm so hungover. Let me just lay down and die.
College Me: Look! A cute guy! I'm going to go makeout with him.
Adult Me: Look! A cute guy! Let me just awkwardly make eye contact and then walk away because I'm too chicken shit to actually talk to him.
College Me: Busch Light is the nectar of the gods
Adult Me: Busch Light is piss flavored water, where's the wine?
College Me: Ew I look so fat!
Adult Me: I wish I looked like I did in college.
College Me: I'm going to sleep in until noon tomorrow. It's going to be great!
Adult Me: I'm going to sleep in until 8am tomorrow. It's going to be great!
As much as I joke about all this stuff, the honest truth is that I have ZERO desire to ever go back to school. I applaud those that have the ambition and the strength to do it because I just don't. School is hard work!
Also, I make fun of getting older and act like it bothers me but truthfully it doesn't. Age is just a number, and the things that have changed about my life (going to sleep at a reasonable hour, always knowing where my pants are in the morning) I perceive as good things.
That being said, it's still fun to look back at those college days ;)
Got any to add? Has a lot changed for you since you were in college?
