College-Life Freedom And Job-Life Constraints

Our seniors in college often say that the time we are spending now will not come back. But it takes hindsight to appreciate this statement. Living in the now is important, whether you are in a dorm room or an office cubicle, but school and college life rises above that.

No other phase of our life may be so relatively worry-free. You remember the time spent with people you liked, doing things that made you happy, more than the education.

Time moves forward, and different stages of life bring different perks and responsibilities with them. Enjoy your college life so that you can look back once in a while, and smile to yourself saying, “That was fun” :)
