Ok not exactly. Last time I checked, most people have figured out how to read and write. You don’t get to use crayons for every assignment. And probably most depressing, my mommy doesn’t pack my lunch anymore.
But other than those small details, college resembles kindergarten in many ways.
First of all, I’m not sure about the rest of you, but I went to a half-day kindergarten. Something along the lines of 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. That means about four hours of class per day. Coincidentally that’s about how many hours of class I have currently. Sure, the class may be a tiny bit more strenuous, but I would take almost anything over the full high school agenda.
Second, remember all the fun messes you were able to make in kindergarten? Yeah, they come back. Here’s a little math equation to show you the general idea:
Guy x 4 in a room – any mothers = I’m sure you can guess.
I might like the room the way we have it, but once the parents come to visit, it’s going to require (A LOT) of tidying up.
My final, and perhaps most important, point can be summed up in a single word: Naps. Naps were always the best part of kindergarten, no question about it. However, once actual schooling started, you were either “too cool to nap” or soon, way too busy to nap. I might have been able to sneak one in here and there throughout high school, but nothing compared to the naps I take every other day here. It’s not frowned upon, it’s a way of life.
So give into your inner child as you begin adjusting to college. Trust me, you won’t regret it.
