Why shoul a 25-year-old who has been through a lot be optimist about?
As I've said it before, I've been through a lot during college life and now I have to start it over from the very beginnig in the very same college and it's so hard going there and having to do with 20-year olds and spending another 4 years there. So Why shoul a 25-year-old who has been through a lot be optimist about?

One that has experienced a lot, is one that has gained a lot of wisdom. one with wisdom, is one with awareness of truth. one with awareness of truth, is one with the power to use it for the advantage of oneself or others.

How do you think mature students over age 30 feel? I think you should get some perspective and realize that not everyone even gets to go to college at all. As you get older, you will soon realize that in the real world, people from age ranges of several decades apart work together in the same companies. This isn't high school anymore where a two year difference in age is considered huge.
Do what you have to do for your second time around and take some comfort that you will have fewer surprises about college than you did the first time around.

You are there to get skills not to make tons of friends. You have an amazing opportunity to get
your life in order by majorig in something marketable and useful annd acquiring skills.
25 isn't eveb that old. You may not even remember what years you were in college when you're older.
I would go back to school in a heartbeat and I'm 28. It'd be even better to go older because I would
have my priorities straight (not that I was a slacker). For example I was thinking of joining a sorority!
Who here can imagine yours truly in a sorority now.
You're doing something respectable while phds wait tables and scores of college grads wait
to be called for an interview. You should feel grateful and honored.
You probably look the same age as your peers so why are you so self conscious?
If I were you I would take advantage of all the amenities like the career center, the gym,
free therapy etc. I would get a part time gig for pocket change and do internships.
Yoiu have your own dorm while millions of people have to move back home or at least pay rent.
Come on, get excited!
