I just read over the survey page and can't help perplexing over the issue of "things to do". It seems to be the major gripe of college students that there "isn't anything to do". I am fully aware that things/society/values etc. have made a drastic turn around in the last decade, but I must also confess that I am unclear of it's origin and when this silly transition started. It seems the economy surrounding the students (money in their pockets) is more lucrative than the past, but yet nothing to do...hmm...so it must not be totally based on monetary issues..ok.
When I was in college I remember poverty at its finest hour. Taking up a beer collection which might include a high percentage of pocket lint on a Saturday night, to say the least, but yet we always seemed to have a vast agenda of "things to do" and places to be, and had an incredible time doing it, the only difference you ask? We seemed to always MAKE things to do rather than waiting for the entertainment to be delivered and spoon fed, because we would still be waiting. College should be the best time of your life! They always say, "Friends you make in college are friends for life". Most people look back on college...crack a big smile and say something like, "I had so much fun back then!". Don't think after College your ridin' the gravy train on bisquit wheels unless you have an inside tip that you are winning the lottery, it's life my friends, and harsh reality will come soon enough.
So if you can't find something to do, use what the good Lord gave you and THINK!!
MAKE something to do and remember, the good times are upon you, right now! Live every day like it was your last, cuz soon enough you too will be talking to your old friend on the phone about your kids and your car troubles, saying...Remember when we used to....
