    Ah, the great college experience. High schoolers dream of it, college students go into debt for it, and parents go to jail for it. Today I take you on a tour of my college campus, reflect on the ups and downs of my college experience as a UCLA film major, talk about how I graduated in less than 3 years, ask whether film school is really worth it, and give my two cents on the recent surge in influencers endorsing dropping out of college.

                                                  I totally get you when you cried about all the loneliness. I cried so much back then in my freshman year, sophomore year and junior year. I stopped crying when I got into my senior year. I still hate it. Whatever I thought is gonna happen in my college doesn’t really happen at all. But I’m just happy that I’m graduating soon and will get over with all this sh*t.

                                                      You just perfectly described how I’m feeling as a freshman going back from winter break soon. I want so badly for my school to feel like home because I was so sure about going there, but right now I hate it. I don’t want to go back at all.

                                                          I wanted to go to UCLA once and it was so nice of you to give a tour and talk about your experience. I did go to a diff uni and I understand when you say it was lonely. It’s not all fun and parties all the time. And yes it makes you stronger and you do hard things.
                                                          There’s something very nice about you. Wish I had a friend like you. All the best for your future in New York 😊

                                                              Oh my gosh— I can relate on so many levels. I was at a local university for a semester, and felt more alone than I ever have in my life.

                                                              Now I’m applying to UCLA, and this was really great information. Thank you.

                                                              Can you tell me about the interview process and getting into film school? I want to be an actress, but I’m not sure if getting a degree in film or psychology would be more beneficial to my craft.

                                                              Anyways, keep on keeping on. You’re great.

If you were just standing up at 10:10, for example, it would've been boring. But you made me laugh when you casually balanced on that post.

                                                                                        Going to college in Germany just cost 120-300 € /a month so 3.600 (the highest amount) a much cheaper! Or can someone explain why it costs 43.000 or so?
