I guess that I’m just an unsympathetic bastard

We saw part of ABC’s World News Tonight this evening, when a story came on about how college students are under just so much stress these days, and that fewer of them describe themselves as mentally happy. My first thought was that if you think college is stressful, try having to work for a living.

My sympathy meter remained pegged on zero.


  1. college is so stressfull many of the psyche/business/english/history/art/theater majors on the five year plan have to go on “spring break”.

  2. Worse for them than for us. Really.

    They’re spending years racking up $100k debts for a piece of paper that might or might not get them into an admin position. All while their friends are making money in whatever jobs they’ve scrounged up, without the debt.
