Honestly It's probably a bit better to commute to school if possible. It is really fun to live on campus, but it can double your tuition. Having a ****-ton more debt isn't exactly great, especially with all the issues of education costs these days.

I know on my campus there isn't even much of a social reason to live on campus. The place is dead on the weekends and a ton of people commute anyway.They are trying to be a more residential campus , but it doesn't help that it has booted out a lot of people who they promised housing. You can probably have the same amount of a social life without needing to pay the insane costs for housing.

So it also depends on the kind of school you go to. The divide between residential students and commuter studentscan effect how much of a social hit you take by living off campus, if any.

I'm curious, what campus do you go to? Is it like, a state university (like UCSD/UCLA) or a state college like humboldt or SFSU or a community college or??? Cause IDK it seems a lot of people usually stay on campus for the weekends where I'm at. That said, this school sounds like it has some fumbles and problems so I wouldn't be surprised people want a break from it.

Lots of advice by extroverts for extroverts. There's a whole 'nother way of relating to the world.

IMO it goes beyond that, a little. People should learn how to deal with people they don't necessarily like that will be near them for a long term basis.

George Mason, around the DC area. It used to be primarily a commuter school but they have been trying to make it more residential. Their attempts have mostly had the effect of making freshman take up increasingly disproportionate numbers of on-campus students. It's a big state school, with lots of international and community college transfer students, so it's probably a bit atypical.

And now because I mentioned where I go to school, people I know might find me here. Not that I mind much. Hello people I may know irl!

My mom kept her name since she got promoted to another high position in her job right as she got married. She's been married for 18 years now, and she still keeps her maiden name.

How odd. I got promoted to another position right before I got married too. I think I'd rather be rid of my maiden name though... it brings back some crappy memories when I hear it lol.

Yeah. A lot of schools I looked at have always been residential schools so they don't have this. Your school sounds like the awkward teenage years in terms of residency, but, it's okay. At least with the freshmen all in one place, they aren't in your grill anymore tbh. And, honestly, I wouldn't want to be in DC on the weekends. That's when the republican senators are out.

Also idk you but you sound pretty cool.

Got married. So really just changing my last name. But still, I have to pay for a new driver's license when I already got one back in January because it expired, I need a new card for SS, I need to notify all my banks, I need new credit/debit cards, new car registration, new title. It's crazy, but worth it. But I'm still going to whine because I am lazy and this is :effort:
Congratulations.

The confessions are mainly sad. I might have to confess something a bit more light hearted.

Ah. That,s understandable. I'm Chinese, so my mother's side of the family are full of pricks lol

My high school had a confession page that was run by one of my friends, who let me look at everyone's confessions she hadn't posted not-anonymously. Unfortunately feelings were hurt even though she made a point not to post any that could have made someone feel bad. The school ended up getting the police involved and made announcements that whoever made it would be sent to juvie, which scared her enough to delete the page.

But it was awesome seeing everyone's secrets for a few days, I felt so powerful.

I really liked the reaction .gifs with some of the earlier confessions, but I imagine it would have been difficult to keep up with once they started pouring in.

I was so sad when I logged on today and saw there was a confessions thread but there was a lock on it, because I just sort of figured it was up for a few days, went to **** and then was locked and I missed all of it.

Yes, I liked the reaction gifs as well. Lots of love to Kreis for using Glee gifs.

Pansy you have to PM the mods with your confession in order for it to be posted

I've never been able to decide weather I really love or really hate glee.

I know,it was just sort of a first glance thing. It makes alot more sense for it to be set up that way though, so I'm not entirely sure what I was thinking :/

In your defense, though, a lot of really terrible threads around here get locked fast.

If it wasn't anonymous, it probably would get locked pretty quickly.

You weren't here for the puberty thread, were you? That thread stayed open way too long.
