Kids in college now
Whatever happened to enjoying your freedom and spending as much time away from mom and dad as possible??? Hanging out with friends on the weekends?
SD, age 18, she is in college literally 10 miles from my house. She doesn't have a driver's license so she doesn't have a car. She never cared to get her driver's license. The college is out of the middle of nowhere close to a VERY small town so there isn't any public transporation. Walking the 3 or 4 miles into town just wouldn't do for SD. She has to call DAAAADDDDYYY almost every weekend to take her out so she isn't bored.
Friend of mine lives out West. His BS, age, 19, goes to college about 2 to 3 hours away from home. BS comes home at least twice a month for the weekends. Friend was thinking about moving to another state about 12 hours away. Friend says that once BS finishes the semester he will transfer to a local college in the new state. WHY???? Friend feels that BS is too young to leave behind. BS says he is going to med school soon in a little over 2 years. The talk that I am hearing now is that BS MAY not be going to med school unless he gets accepted to one closer to home (wherever that may be).
When my BS was 19, he joined the Air Force and was stationed over 1200 miles away from home. He has been stationed in over 4 different states and also was station in S Korea for a year all before his 24th birthday. He TRIES to come home once a year at Christmas. He is enrolled in college and will finished his degree in another 2 years.
