They say the easiest way to make a person go crazy is to lock them by themselves in a room for an hour. No phones. No sleeping. No friends. Just one person and their own thoughts. 

What is college optimized for?

I am a believer in an educational system. I am not one of those people who try and tell anyone to drop out of school. (I am a firm believer that anyone who is trying to sell you to drop out of school generally has other selfish motives or just enjoys talking. I think that everyone should think/decide for themselves).

Personal Stories

I used to keep an Evernote journal where I would write down a brief, bulleted summary of my day. The musings would include everything from depressing anecdotes to day to day highlights. I did this for about a year (Freshman to Sophomore) year of college.
