I just got finished playing “Marry Sex Bury” (to call it by its PG-rated name) with friends. Fun game, but here’s the thing. I thought we were supposed to be adults by now. Earlier in the day after class, I went to the bank and filled out paperwork. Then I paid my rent and signed forms to drive University vehicles. Then I went to work, cooked dinner, went to a meeting, did homework and … listened to Robyn and played that game.
Granted, we used historical figures like presidents and composers but that makes it a bit more pathetic, really. I said this just now to my friend, and she just laughed and reminded me, “College is our last chance to act like kids”. So maybe that pathetic-ness is what I should embrace about being a college student. After all, we have license to act irrationally and make mistakes. We’re under large amounts of stress and our immature pre-frontal cortexes can’t handle it. Though I’m afraid playing M.F.K. is still a bit pathetic, as irrational actions go.
