She just proved the first commenter right. While I agree with workload being heavy everything else she needs to upgrade.
I noticed the Kennedy poster on her wall.  be sure to be a 'democrat' if you are not one. :)

Why does anyone want college to be "easy"? I just don't get that. You're preparing to go out and earn a living. If you're some trust fund beneficiary, or plan on living on entitlements forever, than obviously you don't need to worry about grades.  The rest of us who live in the Real World do require something to show prospective employers that we weren't just getting stoned all day and doing the bare minimum to graduate in 7 years.

+Miguel Gonzalez I would like my class to be easy because I do not learn anything in them.  It is all BS assignments that waste time.  The easier the classes are the more time I will have for learning on my own time.

Wow, I liked how accepting she was of criticism. She's willing to take it as much as she dishes it out. That takes backbone. Also the comment, "hello, life is hard". This is sadly true, making things easy won't do us students any favours.

You don't like college then quit. You think professor are tough? Work for some asshole that don't give a shit about you or what you are learning, and actually HOPES you don't learn anything because if you get smarter you may take their job. Age 18-22, getting aid or going on your parents dime is the best way to go. Try going in your 30's with a spouse and kids, The funny thing is most the time the older students do MUCH better because they aren't whining about professors.
she can't take a hint
Uh, what? I'm an undergraduate having to do the same things you are doing now. Work, school, apartment-search, AND marriage all at once. My father helps out because he's a good parent, but I still do the bulk of the work. And I still have massive student debt that I have to pay off. Like I said, college is easier than the real world. By the way, I have a $0 Expected Family Contribution for my FAFSA. Safe to say my parents aren't rich. Making assumptions truly does make you look like an ass.

im sorry but i went to college for a better job than a 9-5. I'm never clocked out, especially being that i am salary. College is easy, the only reason it is hard is because reality hasn't hit nearly all students that college is their job. I can assure you, if you are graduating college than you are attempting to get a job that isn't a 9-5, a real job.
At least with paying bills, Raising a family, etc, you are doing something that fits EVERYDAY life. What the fuck is writing a 30 page paper on something I don't give a fuck about or I'm not even going to USE once I graduate is going to do for me? Not a god damn thing. 7/10 college is a scam
