If I could go back and do it all over again, I probably wouldn’t have gone to college. Either that or I would’ve gone about it much, much differently.
First off, I wouldn’t have started off majoring in business to make my father happy, and I would’ve re-applied to my first choice school like my original interviewer suggested, instead of just comfortably staying in the university I wound up at.
I definitely would’ve taken my major more seriously and not just settled for the fact that I could easily “pass” classes and give the teacher what they wanted instead of actually fighting to give myself an education that made me happy. I know, idealistic, youthful, cheesy stuff, but what’s wrong with cheese? Cheese is awesome. I would’ve definitely walked around campus more with my group of multi-ethnic friends while posing for the university mailer pamphlet, too.
Because I didn’t work hard enough to forge a direction for myself early on, I am always super impressed with people who know or at least seem to know what career they want to pursue from a young age.
Which is why this Snapchat conversation between two people who seem to be in the nascient stages of getting to know each in a romantic capacity is so hilarious, because they couldn’t possibly be more polar opposites.
It all begins with our friend, Lit Lord (last part of name blurred).
It begins innocuously enough – he asks our poster what they’re studying in school. Our screenshotter answers him and he responds with what appears to be a joke.
But we quickly find out that it’s not a joke.
We’ve come across a man who believes that being a psychopath is a major in school, because they’ve never heard of studying psychology as a major. And he’s trying to date someone who clearly knows what they want to do with their life and seems to be serious about the path they’ve chosen.
Our screenshotter is convinced that he’s still pulling their chain. But he makes it clear he isn’t.
He laughs the whole thing off, but our Psych major isn’t letting go.
Believe it or not, the conversation gets worse.
Lit Lord admits to not having any idea what psychology is. The man apparently has never even heard the word before! He chalks it up to not knowing anything about college, but then again, one doesn’t need to attend college to know what “psychology” means.
He does his best to explain where he’s coming from, but our Psych major just isn’t having it.
At the very least he’s heard of “reverse psychology” and tries to offer that up as an opportunity to reach some common ground and understanding. But our screenshotter is just too flabbergasted that they’re texting with someone who has never even heard what “psychology” is.
They decide to let Lit Lord down easy and tell them they’re probably not compatible.
Which Lit Lord thinks is weird and petty, because he isn’t trying to study when he’s not in school. Guess he missed psychology word day in class.
Lit Lord can hold his head up high though, because he totally shows our psych major at the end.
How does she expect everyone she’s potentially going to date to know about the intricacies of the word psychology?
What’s insane is that Lit Lord leaves the conversation none the wiser. He hasn’t bettered himself, he doesn’t know anything else. All he’s discovered is that he’s unwanted after investing a certain amount of time, and he has no idea why.
Actually, it sounds like he totally went to college.
