I definitely miss my school life, I wish I could go back if ever they would allow me!;) I miss my high school days, where I get to learn and have fun at the same time. I believe these days were the one's where I could explore on new things, made adventure and got more curious of such. I guess that being a student is the start of our being a responsible adult, it is the gateway to understand what we want to be as a grown up.

Yes I do. I really miss those times. I worry about nothing. Everything is being provided by my parents from the financial aspect to almost anything. The only thing i have to put on my mind are my studies. Right now that I am also a parent. I wish to go back to my younger days. LOL!

Hi there ! that's great at least at the young age you're already learning to take your responsibilities. It will help you later on in landing a job. But don't make it the hindrance that you can't enjoy your life as a student. You still can if you want. Just try to manage your time properly. And you can still enjoy being a student. Goodluck to you girl. (smiles) ^_^

People do never get contented of what they have. Its a pscychological urge to experience and attain everything. So not to worry coz it's perfectly normal. Me? I'm still a student struggling to graduate in college. If you ask me, its always much much much much better to have lesser responsibilities in life. But still there's always two sides to a coin, when joy is at your doorstep, sorrow comes closer.

I terribly miss my student life!!! at many points of my life I'm wishing that I could turn back time and be a student again, particularly a college student. ^__^;; of course, being a tudent is much more fun when we talk about responsibilities and having fun. when we were students all our responsibilities revolve around studying, passing the exams,going to class, making projects and all that.. we were not thinking about making money since we have are parents as the source for that. LOL I miss my college life because I had so much fun in it. I had amazing friends, I had a lively extracurricular activities which included softball as my sports and dancing as my literary activity. ^__^ and of course I was a member of an organization which had sorts of activities that were fun as well. and then, the best part is the gimmicks with friends which included hanging out at each others boarding houses, at the beach, going to clubs, partying, or just hanging out at school and fooling around. LOL it was really fun and I had different kinds of friends which are from the different parts of the country. ^__^ if I could just really go back.. ^__^

I miss those old sweet days very much. I miss my primary school classmates very much, especially the one who sit beside me for four years. Her grandpa owned an orchard on a mountainside near to our school. We used to visit the orchard during the seasonal fruit season which normally fell on June and December. Other than eating fruits we enjoyed swimming in the cool crystal clear stream. Then we would help her grandpa to collect the fallen durians and put in heap. I always brought back home many fruits to share with my siblings. Those happy days will never reappear.

I would definitely vote for Student life. I miss my college days. I was away from home, when I was in college. It was quite a responsibility. Managing funds against social life, education etc, but I enjoyed it to the most. Life is OK now, but it has become a routine. Taking decisions have become difficult. So many options to give due consideration. Cannot live a carefree life. Thanks for starting this discussion Indiavani, for a moment my thought flew to the past.

It is over 12 years since I finished my studies, I guess looking back in time those were the days I lived without much responsibility on my shoulders. Life was more fun and entertainment. Even after joining work my years as a junior was fun, after going up the ladder more and more responsibilities have been added to my work and has made me feel this way

I think student's life is something interesting but can't be maintained for life even if you don't want to let go of it. it's like at school, you're for yourself and you can misbehave without cautioned in social life. one is given the financial support from the family and you spend the money without an attached string on it after paying what is the fees of the school. Whereas when you're the head of the family you need to take care of the children, share ideas on how the family income should be spent with your partner. save for the future of the children. so there is a contrast of what is student life and adult life.

I miss college some, but not taking out loans or being stressed about big assignments. I have been able to do some other things I enjoy more without worrying about going to study or a deadline for school to meet.

I miss college every day. It's nice making money and being an adult but if there was ever a time to go back to it would be college. But the nice thing is you can always go back and visit with some old friends. But don't get stuck in that old mind set, you should take in all of lifes changes and injoy them all.

I definitely miss student life..... and that is why I am a student again today. I have just enrolled myself in a Child Psychology degree course and it's really great to be a student again. Although it's a part-time thing, but the interactions and the people and friends around seems like the olden days. Although the freedom and the lifestyle and the no-responsible attitude is no longer the same, but it's still great to be a student again.

When I was a student, I always wanted to grow up because I hated the exams. Now I changed. I hope I would go back and be a student again. I would have the summer and winter vacations and I didn't have many responsibilities. All my job was to study hard.

In broader sense, one is a student throughout his life - always keep learning. But in real sense, you are referring to the time spent during school days. I agree, but all good things come to an end. One cannot be in school longer than required, isn't it?

Yes, I do miss my student life. When I was a student, I always expect for the life of adults. When I grow up, I begin to miss the students life. Eventhough there were a lot of houseworks to do and a burden of things to be memorized, I there is no pressure from the adult world such as job house car money marriage......If you are a student, enjoy you life pls. The student life is short, but it leaves nice memory to you.

Honestly, I already miss my student life. When I was still studying, I thought life will be easier for me since I am a bachelor degree holder. I have many plans way back then... plans that I am really eager to pursue. But life is really different when you're there already. Decision changes, arguments modified, reasons are being revised just to cope up with what the realm is dictating to you. And now, I' learned that money is hard earned since I am currently experiencing it. Before when I am still studying I don't care where the money came from. What is important to me is that I have something to spend to for my needs and wants. and now, I value saving more than spending if I really want to have something to spend for my schooling. If only I can turn back, I would still want to be a student for as long as I can. But grown ups should act as one, that is why now, I am accepting what I have what entails me to do. And there is no permanent in this world except for change.
