Chingy's overdosing on life.
When you go to a good college, you (amongst many) are going to find it a real shock to the senses. Most people go to uni at 17... I went at 18 and it didn't scare me. The only thing scary about it was that I was on a new country, new continent and everything was different. Work-wise, it's easier than my high school.
The extra year really makes a difference. It gives you time to mature and develop as a person. So many people were shocked at the diversity here at Waterloo, since they were born and raised in "little white towns" across Canada.
@Dhampy: GRADE 13, not 13 years.
Most people go when they're 18 or 19 here. I started school a year early and I was still 18 when I started college.
Well Chingy was bagging on all North Americans earlier so I thought he was generalizing the whole college process.
