What I'll Miss About College

Missing college

I remember college being the most exciting thought (other than the long summer) whilst at school, it seems such a long time ago now! At the time, our school didn't have a sixth form so we all knew we were going to be heading in separate directions, for some it was a relief and for others it was hard to say goodbye. When leaving school, I didn't find it as easy as it is to leave college. I feel like the days have dragged and the 2 years become a lifetime but nonetheless the time arrived. I often wonder what it is that I dislike about college so much, but every time I come down to the same conclusion: A-levels. Either way I have actually found a few things that I will miss about college!

Learning
This is a weird one. Surely this is what everyone hates? As I'm going to be studying an art degree, my knowledge of how cells are adapted and integrating trig functions are soon going to disappear over this summer. Having being able to once solve such challenging problems, I know in the future I will miss being able to have this skill. 

Socialising
It's fair to say that I made some amazing friends whilst at college, and we'll be sure to keep in touch throughout our next adventures. But the people I will really miss are the ones that are the characters in the class, the teachers full of banter, the dinner ladies that know your order before you even open your mouth. It's weird to think I won't come across those people again. 

Individual Style
I think this one will still crop up in my life but at college style was so varied! We had no rules, wear what you want... look how you want. I found it so cool to look at other peoples fashions, and question if I could ever pull off their hairstyle(answer was ALWAYS no). But also what people got up to around the grounds; playing cards, guitars, singing...there was always something I would admire. 

Student Discount
Definitely struggling without this, I felt like my soul was ripped out of me when my student card was taken away! Hurry up uni. 

Those are the things I'll miss, pretty sure to say I won't miss the nightmare of a carpark that place had!

If you're leaving a job, uni, college/school, let me know what you'll miss in the comments!
