Top 10 Things College Taught Us About Life

Adam Starr

4. Boredom

At college, as in life, we occasionally become bored with the task at hand. Maybe we don’t really care about how igneous rocks formed when magma cooled intrusively or extrusively, or why the answer to this math problem is theta instead of cosine. The important thing to remember about boredom is that it’s temporary. While not entirely uncommon, boredom does not define the entire experience, nor should it derail you from focusing on goals. Boredom is just a symptom of any long-term activity. We entered college because we knew that a degree would give us an advantage in a competitive job market and because we wanted to learn and explore a variety of subjects and fields. Sure, we were occasionally required to take classes we didn’t particularly like or find interesting, but we didn’t quit because that would have prevented us from reaching our goal of graduation. Likewise, you will be bored on occasion in your professional existence, but, like in college, you will persevere. If you quit a job or dropped a class every time it failed to captivate, you would never get anywhere.
