At least my post was tongue in cheek. You guys should all run to the nearest gas oven and stick your heads in. Talk about depressing. Sheesh.
Student (uni/college definition) is so easy. You study what interests you - noi endless compulsory subjects (well not too many anyway). Girls find you attractive after a few beers. Awesome. Beer finds you attractive and you know your so dog-damned attractive with your best buddy, the beer, inside you.
Post uni, yeah life is harder, but c'mon guys, if you forget how to have fun, you're just taking somebody else's oxygen, right? You have the life you allow yourself. Yeah bad things happen, but just get on with it.
