Yeah my first year uni I commuted like 4-5 hours a day.. >_> Not fun.. but then it only got tougher from there.
My last year.. I maybe went out.. 3 times the entire year, and it was still crazy loaded with coursework.. to the point I was pulling all nighters like.. every third night in my last month.
This! When I took my psychology elective.. >_> oh dear god did I miss writing those flowy essays for english class. But it even had to be 10 pages of strict information.. written APA style which I only did like once before in my whole life like 6 years prior. Everything else was MLA style.. and oh man that took some adjusting to.
I did not like that class only because I needed to memorize so many technical things.. and when I'm doing a million other things at uni and it's not my major.. I found it crazy hard.
