LOL!!!! how is this an FML...I could understand if the friend was the one who posted this but not if you are this doesnt even really have much to do with your life you didnt get accepted to the school...sure but she's the one not smart enough to use common sense to know that the internet wont tell you if your pregnant x.x therefore FHL not yours
It's an FML because the OP, who at least by this anecdote isn't a fucking moron, can't even get into a community college; ie she's applied to MULTIPLE places, even sinking to community colleges which nearly accept just about anyone, and her friend, who at least by this anecdote IS a fucking moron, got into an Ivy-League college; ie she got into a highly prestigious school that usually only takes the absolute best and brightest. The FML is the cruel, cruel unfairness of it all.
Common sense is completely different to intelligence. Somebody could be incredibly smart, yet very naive at the same time. It doesn't mean they didn't deserve their place in the College :/
Intelligence and common sense are not the same thing, not even close. Sure a person can be smart....book smart, but has nothing to do how that person will be in real life. Some of the smartest people on paper are often the stupidest idiots ever (ever (ever)) Sadly, that's how the world works. A diploma is more important than having common sense and the know how to ACTUALLY live....pisses me the fuck off, don't worry
And on the other hand, there are plenty of bitter idiots who never made it past high school, and now sit around saying, "Oh yeah, he might of went to Yale, but I have STREET SMARTS so I'm smarter than all those fancy college kids." Its funny to see people try to pretend they are some secret genius. No, you are not Matt Damon, this is not Good Will Hunting, and not going to college does not equal street smarts.
well expen, I am not bitter cuz I didn't go to college / graduate high school. I am 20 and pursuing my Bachelors in Business Administration, then to pursue my Masters at a top business school. I don't see the bitterness.... Even though you may have a good degree, it doesn't mean you have to bash on people that didn't graduate high school - it's their own choice to flip burgers and work at mcdonalds their whole life....or work 9-5 on minimum wage and drive all hours of the day in gridlock :)
I love how you're trying to make yourself feel better for not getting into a place like that! Yeah, I could have made it to Princeton, just a lot of work that I could have done but didn't feel like it! Guess what, I got in Princeton and I've been working my ass off for the last 10 years... so the difference between "could have" and "did" is huge... requires both potential and perseverance, don't know which one you lack...
How is this an F YOUR life? She was the one who should have posted this, not you. It doesn't affect you at all. Unless you're really embarassed to have such a stupid friend. Hehe I probably would be too.
