Are you nostalgic about college?|

I get why people miss that, and sometimes I do too--sometimes it would be nice to be able to go to brunch on Sunday morning and hang out for three hours with a rotating cast of friends, for whom there would be plenty of space and plenty of food nobody in our circle had to either pay for that day or prepare that day. But I think I was not very well-suited to that style of socializing even at the time. I spent a lot of energy trying to make sure that various people were all right and felt included. I also got peopled out fairly quickly and had difficulty getting enough alone-time. So while I can see the appeal, for me it's better this way.
