it’s been a while since i’ve really spilled how i feel about how life is going right now. i have some time, it’s quiet in my room, and i felt like now would be the right time.
my feelings about college are incredibly mixed, i’ve been run through the gauntlet and somehow, i’ve made it out. i’ll probably have another punch thrown at me in like two days, but , i’ve started to realize that i will learn more life lessons here than i will classroom lessons.
i’ve been sick twice. once with the plague that’s been running around campus and currently, with a kidney infection. nothing makes you miss your mom like feeling like utter shit.
i’ve tried out for a division 1 sports team. i’ve also been cut from a division 1 sports team. the reason? i was too short. welcome to college rowing y’all.
i’ve discovered how lucky i am to have a decent brain in my head. while people are struggling with division of polynomial equations, i can get the second highest score on a calc test without studying. i never realized how lucky i was not to struggle with school.
social skills are almost more important than academic skills here. be cognizant of other people, know who you’re talking to, and know how to talk to people.
piggybacking onto those two notes, street smarts will get you farther here than book smarts will. just don’t be dumb.
puking on a frat boy’s floor happens when you drink the equivalent to 12 drinks in an hour. it also makes for a really funny story later. especially when you don’t remember half of it.
frat parties get old quick. house parties are even worse. bite the bullet, spend $80 and get a fake id.
college kind of sucks sometimes. college kind of rocks other times. but right now, i can’t wait to go home. there really is no place like home.
