|Roger Williams University has been such a lame time.

So I decided I need to rant about this school.|
If you don't want to hear it, stop reading.
Basically I came to this school knowing that it had a beautiful campus, a somewhat good business program, and a good radio station from what I had seen.
After staying here for the past 7 months, I feel like I have gotten dumber.
I learned more in high school and definitely was a lot more challenged.
I can leave everything off until an hour before class and still get a good grade on things.
I don't need to read anything to pass the classes either.
They offer a lot of different classes but don't leave enough room for people to take the classes.
There were very few music classes and only held about 20 slots so when I wanted to take one there was no way I could get into it.
In my math class this semester, I learned more from a freshman in a span of 2 hours than I did from that teacher the whole semester.
I feel so unmotivated to try to do anything because I know I don't need to try hard to get things done.
It is all a joke and I think once I transfer classes will be a lot harder.
The kids here for the most part are not my kind of people.
Yeah, I guess I shouldn't stereotype on how most of them are stuck up rich kids but when it comes down to it they are.
Most kids have their mommy pay for their education and I see so many people just throw away that money and not do shit in class.
The only thing that people like to do is get trashed on the weekends. I mean I like to drink every once in awhile but it is not my idea of fun all the time. I have found very few people who I can have an actual conversation with that doesn't have to do with music, drinking, or some kind of drug. I have found my group of friends who I will miss, but for the most part it won't be too hard to leave behind these people.
The dorms here are the worst.
Or maybe just mine.
I mean we pay so much money. Don't get the best education. And live in a crappy dorm.
I'm shoved in a two person room with two other people.
Everything is falling apart.
If anything breaks, we are responsible to pay for it throughout the entire dorm.
That means all the drunk assholes who have broken the front door like 10 times this year gets added onto my bill.
Alcohol free dorm = the place with the most alcohol = loud obnoxious kids.
We have basically no security either.
I mean I go to BSC and everything is so much nicer. And it's a state school.
So basically the only good things I have gotten out of this school are:
Experience with the radio station. Which I do love.
Use of the gym. Which helped me lose a buttload of weight.
Walks down to the beach. Which I can see at home.
2 good business classes.
And the nicest dining hall staff a college kid could ask for.
I also was not myself at all here.
I was so shy and didn't really go out of my way to meet people.
I felt that most people weren't worth my time.
I would go home and be so freakin' happy.
Then come back here to basically nothing.
I mean yeah I choose to come here so it's all my fault so I can't really complain.
I just really wish I took a year off like I had planned.
I could have actually researched majors and found music business and gone to a school that would benefit me this fall.
Now I'm so behind that I will most likely be a freshman all over again because most credits probably won't transfer.
I really feel I wasted so much money. Both my parents and I are so far in debt already.
I'm just happy I had the opportunity to go to school at all.
It was all a learning experience.
But I guess it comes to that whole everything happens for a reason which I have learned to apply to my life over the past 4 years like whoa.
And I'm done thinking about boys.
Or at least I can say that.
I mean I miss that feeling of falling in love.
Not being in love.
The whole butterflies and smiles galore that you get.
And I somewhat had those feelings but they have all disappeared because life doesn't go how I want it to.
I don't want to hope for anything because I have been disappointed way too much.
I miss people like whoa though.
But I'm just going to see them as friends.
I have way too many other things to worry about this summer.
My goals are to make as much money as possible, learn the bass more so that I can pass an auditon for school, get healthier/lose more weight, and just have a good time with my friends this summer.
I know that last summer sucked. And it was not as fun as it could have been. But this one will be different.
