Prep time: 4 years of high school Cook time: at least two semesters of college Serves: 1
3 oz. realizing you don’t actually like the classes for your major that much
6 oz. researching other majors’ requirements
3 oz. wishing you’d chosen a different major
2 tbsp hearing how great your friends are doing at their schools
1 tbsp wishing you’d chosen a different college
1 cup pressure from parents and professors
1 cup thinking you’re never getting a job
3 cups tears
12+ sleepless nights
1 lb. crippling fear of adulthood
1. Combine the following ingredients in a large bowl: realizing you don’t like your major that much, researching other majors’ requirements, and hearing how great your friends are doing at their schools.
2. Add half of the following ingredients: wishing you’d chosen a different major, wishing you’d chosen a different college, pressure from parents and professors, thinking you’re never getting a job, tears, sleepless nights, and crippling fear of adulthood.
3. Stir vigorously until you split in half.
4. Repeat until graduation.
5. Add the remaining amounts of emotional struggles and regretting your choices.
