High school vs. college: If you think there is no “versus” tale to be told, or there is not really a difference, you are wrong. We hate to break it to you, but high school is the time of our lives in which sleeping is still permitted and moms are still making pancakes for breakfast… Unless you grew up and your high school diploma forced you to become a responsible young adult, run. Run as fast as you can. Not because college sucks. But because it’s so damn hard.
If you’re still in high school, here’s a short preview of what college is going to be like. But if you’ve already signed up for the university, then it’s your chance to get your freedom back for a few minutes.
High School vs. College #1
Admit it. In high school, you wished you could live on your own. In fact, you counted the days because “your mom was cruel”, “your father was unfair”, and your siblings annoying.

But living on your own turned out to be much more complicated than you would have thought.

Remember those straight A’s you used to get all the time?
High School vs. College #4
Nuh-uh! Not in college and not unless you want to chase them for 12 years like Leo did with his Oscar.
High School vs. College #5
But if you do get those A’s, you will lose something very important – your best friend. No, not Jenny from history class. I’m talking about sleep.
High School vs. College #6
Speaking of Jenny, she was one of the few friends you had in high school, wasn’t she?
High School vs. College #7
Well, in college, everybody is your best friend.
High School vs. College #8
Except that they don’t give you their homework anymore.
High School vs. College #9
You used to have so many goals in high school.
High School vs. College #10
But somehow, college takes it all away from you. There are simply too many things going on.
High School vs. College #11
And that perfect sandwich mother would make you for lunch at school?
High School vs. College #12
It’s all gone now. But hey! College is full of pizza, anyway.
High School vs. College #13
However, your budget may not agree with you all the time. Mostly never, but there’s still hope.
High School vs. College #14
Living with your parents was totally different.
High School vs. College #15
And remember when you hated everything about your high school?
High School vs. College #16
Well, at least it was free. But in college, there is no such thing as “free”. Hint: think about the student loan.
