It's not as if they're trying to dumb down the population or anything similar to that.
The showers are a nightmare. And taking a shower when there's hot water is a real gamble.
But there are quite a few students who come here to actually study and do something with their lives - and watching them go through this gives me a huge sense of motivation. And there is a certain unity in this type of dorms. I only thank Father Satan that I have damn nice roommates. That's ridiculously to happen rare when you share the room with four other girls.
I do believe this is a very important process when it comes to actually become an adult. I've already started feeling more responsible and, shockingly, I'm taking more care of myself now than I was at home. You can't afford the luxury to sit down and procrastinate or be lazy when most days you have classes from 8 am to 8 pm with brief breaks. Which makes the rest even sweeter when you can finally sit down and relax.
At least we have good and cheap food at the mess hall in our campus.
Well sister... jEwrope doesn't need smart people. I remember four years ago when you needed at least to have the highschool to work in markets. One year ago looking again at the same jobs the requirements got lower, only with the gimnazium needed. And instead about prisons... well whites are quite welcomed there. So it's no wonder why they make prisons to have better conditions. One reason is because as I said above, they don't need smart whites, and I'd say that you are wrong with that statement that they are not trying to dumb the population... in schools and highschools it's exactly the opposite, for jobs it's getting quite clear. And secondly I've heard some people say that they rob only to be caught to get in prisons, under the next sentence''I get a roof to live under, and free food''. So...
I was a bit sarcastic with that statement, about the government encouraging stupidity. But I agree with you. I'm very lucky to have such amazing roommates. Even with some dubious living standards, this place is starting to feel like home with them. As an introvert they don't exhaust me. If anything, they make me feel better. Good company does matter a lot.
And the campus is gorgeous. We're in the most beautiful zone of the city and we have a lot of nature around.
If only the university wasn't a damn maze. Incredibly beautiful. But I literally spent 30 minutes today trying to find an amphitheatre and very few people could give me clear answers on how to find it. I had a course there yesterday. But it's literally hidden in the basement and so difficult to remember the location.
They call it "The bunker".
